8/8 Lion's Gate

::  8/8/17 = 8/8/8  Lion's Gate (or Lionsgate) Portal is open and active ::

Yesterday's partial lunar Aquarius Eclipse (and Full Moon) opened an Eclipse Portal and also announced today's opening of the Lion's Gate Portal, which happens on 8/8. This portal connects dimensions, the physical and spiritual realms.

The Sun is in the sign and constellation of Leo (the lion). Sirius (the Dog Star), the brightest star, is activated and moves closer to earth, and they align with the Galactic Center. There is potential for humankind to align with these energies and sense or imagine the earth being bathed in celestial spiritual light from both the Sun and Sirius (often called our "spiritual sun"). This surge brings an opportunity for tremendous shifts, up leveling and activation; we can experience a cosmic DNA activation, an upgrade or up leveling of epic proportions. Cosmic Codes of evolution may be revealed and absorbed or activated, beamed and transmitted to us on earth during this time. Sensitives especially may feel this and experience physical symptoms. Some may feel a dynamic stirring or burst of energy, an expansion of the solar plexus region and heart space, while others may feel a buzzing in the head, headaches, or exhaustion and need to sleep more. We can think of this as a "galactivation" that can awaken dormant seeds of karma, gifts and awareness that have yet to manifest in this lifetime, or a system's upgrade for our DNA, or a reminder of our intimate connection with the heavens and Cosmic Consciousness. 

The number 8 is considered to be a number of power, spirituality, infinity, cosmic realms. The Lion's Gate corresponds to the Strength card in the tarot.

From now until 8/14 we can tune in more to these cosmic energies and align as much as we can, upgrading our frequency or vibration, fine tuning our intuition and instincts, clearing old karmas from our DNA and inviting an upgrade for our highest/deepest selves. This is such a strange and surreal time to be alive on the planet. There are no rules or regulations for what to feel or how to navigate these days, as it changes day by day and is unique for each being. For this week especially try to spend time with bare feet and hands in the soil and sea or rivers, and let your second sight (inner vision) awaken to see the unseen. You may feel like you're in a cosmic cocoon awaiting rebirth, so don't rush the process. Take as much time as possible away from screens and social media and instead turn inward. Enjoy some solitude and experience the magick and evolution emerging within you. 

Embody the archetype of the regal and royal lion or lioness of quiet power, watching and waiting, listening and learning, and holding courageous space for the cosmic heart beating still… 
Light a fire in your cauldron and reclaim any power you've given away, offering gratitude and remembering there are more dimensions in the cosmos and in your consciousness than we can successfully imagine.

Blessed be.

We're entering the Eclipse Portal once again this year. In February we had our first Lunar Eclipse of the year at 22º Leo, then a Solar Eclipse in Pisces. On Monday, August 7 on Lunar+Solar Lammas, the Aquarius Full Moon will be exact at 11:11am (CA time). The Lunar Eclipse occurs at 11:22am, 15º Aquarius. We'll experience the visible and potent Solar Eclipse on August 21 at 28º Leo.

All Eclipses are activators and accelerators, bringing about sudden changes, complete dissolution and exciting initiations. These upcoming astral blasts may be connected to events that happened 18/19 years ago. In my public teachings and writings over the years I've advised students and clients to make it a "no whine zone" during the Eclipse Portal, and this is because energetically this is such a charged and fertile space that we seed with our words and thoughts. Be as considerate and clear-minded as you can be navigating these next weeks, which will take focus. Generally speaking, an Eclipse is like a whirlwind of seemingly chaotic energy swirling through your life, doing (what looks like) damage but also rearranging things to work and flow better. Things can get turned upside down. It's like an energetic electrical power surge, where all the power shuts off, then resets everything as it's turned back on. So your considerations can be around what you're ready to release in a big way, maybe something you haven't felt strong enough to let go of on your own until now, and what your genuine invocation is.

Aquarius is a fixed air sign, ruled by the planet of change and originality, Uranus (modern ruler). Aquarius is the Water Bearer dispensing wisdom, the mad scientist, the outlaw misfit, the logician, the humanitarian, the rebel genius, the hermit mystic. Part of the inherent paradox of Aquarius is that it's the sign of idealism and humanitarianism, but is often emotionally detached in interpersonal relationships, it is the sign of friendship but also the contented outcast, the scientist and the artist, the progressive yet extreme and fixed in opinion. We will need to find a way to make an impactful offering to the collective, to humankind, through means of our unique expression of our radical individuality.

Possible themes for the Aquarius Eclipse include: truth-telling, friendship/aloneness, belonging/being an outcast, justice/political extremism, leadership/radicalism, sincerity/shock value, loyalty/detachment, independence/collaboration, communication, questioning everything, analysis, unconventionality, invention, hopes and dreams, disruption, originality, avant-guard, wisdom. 

Keep in mind that Mercury (in Virgo) stations on Saturday, August 12 in the evening, and will be retrograde until September 5. So this week, as you work within the explosive and electrifying energies, try to also tie up any loose ends with technology and communication before station day. Mercury's backward motion is an opportunity to slow down in every way, from your mental activity to your literal activity (including walking, asana, driving…). The past will likely show up in one form or another, so be prepared. And if something important does resurface, it's because it needs another look, or a bit more attention. After acknowledgment it may finally be able to be released, so that there can be closure. 

If you're interested in more insight or how to work with this intensity, for a short time I'm offering an Eclipse Portal Guide to assist you. Send me an email letting me know you'd like it. ($17)
I also have Retrograde Relief nervine tonic, Mugwort & Rose Dream Potion, and body/anointing oils ready to ship out this week. See the Kosmic Apothecary page.

Note:

For two and a half years, consistently week after week, I've written weekly horoscopes through some of the most dreadful days I've ever experienced, and gratefully, some of the most sublime. Having a writing deadline and keeping the kind of focus and intuition to do horoscopes the way I do them became a practice, part of my daily life, a tether or anchor through the storms and chaos of life shifting dramatically. For two years I wrote for Yoganonymous, as their Contributing Astrological Columnist, writing weekly horoscopes, monthly overviews, yearly overviews and additional seasonal pieces. I truly enjoyed having my column, and hearing from so many readers that my horoscopes were always eerily on point. ;) After Yoganonymous was bought by Wanderlust and dissolved, I moved my horoscopes back here, to the blog (where they were before). (I am appreciative to Dan and Yoganonymous for offering me this position right around my fortieth birthday- I loved the job). Writing my weekly horoscopes week after week for these two and a half years became an initiatory process, a deeply personal practice, which invoked a mythos… I think of Ariadne's story, the red thread, transformation, choice and destiny, and ultimately triumph. I am immensely appreciative of this process and the fruits that it came to bear. But each evolution brings an up-leveling, and new mysteries are brewing in the cauldron.

The format will change a little;  I will take a break from writing public weekly horoscopes for now. I'll write an overview for the month. And soon I'll offer the magickal weekly horoscopes by subscription (I'll make an announcement when that is ready for you to sign up for). I will offer a few online courses to give more specific and elaborate details for the dynamic astrology we find ourselves in regularly. And of course I always have a wait list for natal charts and tarot readings, so get in touch if you'd like to add yourself to the list. 

Thank you for your readership and ongoing support. It is a joy to be your celestial interpreter and to offer insights and suggestions to you for navigating the astrological weather.

July 17-23 Horoscopes

Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, July 17 - Sunday, July 23  


This is the week that fire signs have been waiting for: the week that the sun moves into Leo. And not only that, but Mars moves into Leo until September and we have a Leo New Moon this week too. We can wave goodbye to Cancer season for another year when the Sun enters boastful Leo on Saturday morning. The sensitive vibes of Cancer, which are necessary for us to actually feel our feelings and deal with them, can make us moody after four weeks so when sun-ruled Leo enters the scene, some emotional heaviness lifts and the mood lightens up in general. Leo is ruled by the Sun, so the Sun is happy here.

Mars, the planet of action and power, leaves Cancer and shifts to Leo on Thursday morning, changing the way we communicate, infusing our words and thoughts with more drama and confidence. Sunday morning is the New Moon in Leo, a time to seed fresh intentions and visions. We have a rare treat of having two back to back Leo New Moons this Leo season, with the second one bringing a powerful total Solar Eclipse.

Some of the additional aspects providing context this week include Venus squaring Neptune, Mars squaring Uranus, Mars trine Chiron, Venus trine Jupiter, Sun/Moon conjunction, and Moon/Mars conjunction. Squares imply conflict or challenge, trines are harmonious and favorable, and conjunctions are most powerful and intensifying.

The astrology of August heats up, and these shifts into Leo land will get everyone warmed up for the summer. I recommend for all signs to try to get their shit together as much as possible now before the Eclipse cycle hits, palo santo smudges and black tourmaline gridding, and sunflowers all around.

 

Aries & Aries Rising
The new solar cycle begins with the Sun’s entrance into Leo, making the next four weeks for you all about creative and sexual expression. The Sun will settle into your sexy fifth house and your energy will be passionate, making it a good time for artistic pursuits and romance. It’s also the house that rules children, joy and chance, and you may feel inclined for more play or it could be more about fertility/pregnancy. This is called the natural house for the Sun.

Around the time of the New Moon in Leo, clarify intentions of what you want to invoke around  love, romance or your art, in whatever form that takes.

When Mars makes a move to Leo, the sex and seduction increases; Mars is sex drive, and this part of your chart houses sex, passion and love affairs.

 

Taurus & Taurus Rising
The new solar cycle begins on Saturday morning with the Sun’s move into Leo, turning your attention to home and family matters for the next four weeks. As the Sun settles into your domestic sector, the energy will center on your household, home improvement or renovations, women and children in your life, and all domestic affairs. You’ll be happy to nest and rest at home, to host close friends and family at your space, or to indulge in much-needed self-care.

On Sunday morning we have a Leo New Moon in this same house, so set intentions for this lunar cycle lasting about six months, around bringing you closer to your dreams about home and family, and what it means to you to feel “at home” in the world.

Mars, the planet of power, moves to Leo on Thursday morning and remains until early September; this could bring more passion and give you the drive to complete home projects,  or it could bring some misunderstanding or arguments into your homelife, either with roommates or family members.


Gemini & Gemini Rising
On Saturday morning the Sun moves into Leo, beginning the new solar cycle. For the next four weeks your energy will be directed into ideas, self-expression, and community efforts. You may need to travel for work or as part of your studies, and you also may want to reconnect with extended family. Your sign is the natural ruler of this house; you’ll feel in your element for this cycle.

Sunday’s Leo New Moon is in this same part of your chart. In the time around the new moon, consider what new energy you’d like to bring in to support communicating your ideas and truth, for your studies or for mending relationships with some of your family members. Pay attentions to important conversations taking place on the New Moon.

The planet of drive, Mars, enters Leo on Thursday and brings a burst of bright energy to all of your communications. Be aware that Mars can be aggressive or insensitive here. In general, all things you do related to technology, logic, studies or communicating will be empowered; it is a good time to take some action on ideas.


Cancer & Cancer Rising
The Sun leaves your sign on Saturday and moves into bold Leo, which means your energy is shifting gears a bit. For this solar cycle your attention turns to money matters and opportunities to get grounded. This emphasis on your second house is exaggerated by having Mars move to Leo and also a Leo New Moon.

Mars makes a move on Thursday, and together with the Sun can bring new financial prospects your way, give you the drive and ambition to pursue a new position or outlet for your career, and boost your earning power and income. The Mars energy could also bring a disagreement over money or an expense you weren’t prepared for, but for the most part this dynamic arrangement will be positive and profitable if you work with the energy.

The New Moon arrives early Sunday morning and you can consider how you’d like to improve your finances or increase material success, as well for stability all around and seeing your self-worth.


Leo & Leo Rising
This is your week, Leo, and the beginning of your birthday month. Happy solar return!

We leave Cancer season on Saturday morning, and you can climb out of the heavy twelfth house energy to celebrate the Sun coming home to your sign. The next four weeks are all about you and with Mars moving to Leo as well as two consecutive New Moons in your sign this season, you’ll be on fire! Choose to use your powers for good.

Mars shifts to Leo on Thursday and remains until September, boosting your confidence and self-esteem (since you’re all so shy and quiet) and increasing your magnetism even more. Mars energizes but can also aggravate with all that impulsive and willful energy, so channel it wisely (into sex appeal and ambition).

The first of two New Moons (special) in your sign happens Sunday morning. The next one will bring with it a Solar Eclipse which will catalyze a rebirth or transformation of some kind. In the days after the New Moon, as the Moon waxes, consider what personal prayers or prized but hidden hopes you have that you want to invoke; this can help you prepare for the New Moon and Eclipse coming in August.


Virgo & Virgo Rising
The new solar cycle begins with the Sun’s entrance into Leo, which means that the next four weeks are for you to take time for yourself in deep reflection. This is just a rite of passage the month before your birthday month, a time for you to clear karma and get rest and heal some wounds before your yearly new beginning.

On Sunday we have a New Moon in Leo, and another one next month which is pretty special. The second Leo New Moon accompanies a Solar Eclipse which will bring a transformation or rebirth. For this one, clarify what karmic debts or self-defeating behaviors you’re ready to purge and get ready for the upcoming Eclipse to send a power surge through your life.

Mars makes a move to Leo on Thursday and remains until September. In this sensitive part of your chart that rules endings, self-imposed limitations, hidden agendas and sorrows, Mars can contribute to extreme right brain activity and an overactive subconscious. There could be a confrontation and you may say goodbye to a painful relationship. Tune in to your psychic sense.


Libra & Libra Rising
The next solar cycle begins on Saturday, when the Sun leaves Cancer for Leo, moving into your house of friends and alliances. For the next four weeks you’ll feel like socializing and re-connecting with people, and these connections can lead you to new opportunities.

Mars, the planet of will, moves to this same part of your chart on Thursday and continues to boost your confidence and charisma in social settings. You’ll feel an increase in ambition and will go after your goals; through either technology or teamwork your organization will succeed and your interests and objectives made clear.

We have the first of two consecutive New Moons in Leo on Sunday morning. In the first couple of days after the New Moon is exact, contemplate how you want to move forward into a new cycle and set intentions. The next Leo New Moon brings an Eclipse with it, which is certain to shake things up in some way, either severing a tie or igniting a new collaboration.


Scorpio & Scorpio Rising
On Saturday we start a new solar cycle, with the Sun moving into Leo, your tenth house of long term plans. The next four weeks will be beneficial for making moves to solidify material success in some way, and for success in matters outside of home and family, including your image and career.

Powerhouse Mars also moves to Leo and only contributes to boosting your ambition and career aspirations. This is prime time to pitch your ideas, get the raise you deserve or branch out on your own. Through your hard work, your fruitful efforts and raw talent, you’ll accomplish much during this time.

The first of TWO New Moons in Leo occur early Sunday morning- this one can be good practice for setting clear and lucid intentions that are both meaningful and ambitious, because the second New Moon coming up brings with it a significant Solar Eclipse which will surely bring big changes or evolution.


Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising
On Saturday we begin a new solar cycle, when the Sun leaves Cancer and enters Leo; the next four weeks will give you an opportunity for success in philosophical or scientific thought and work or with travels. Expansion and growth are available to you during this cycle, and this is the time if you’ve been considering higher education or traveling abroad. Your sign is the natural ruler of the ninth house where all the action will be taking place so it should all feel familiar.

The planet of action, Mars, also moves to Leo and this part of your chart, which could make you more inclined to take big risks and speaking bluntly and honestly. You’ll be more drawn to adventure, and not so much to specific plans that may feel constrictive.

We’ll experience the first of two Leo New Moons this weekend, and the second one brings a powerful punch with a Solar Eclipse. For this New Moon, consider what energy you want to move forward with and what changes you want to make. Think globally for these moons...


Capricorn & Capricorn Rising
The new solar cycle begins with the Sun’s entrance into Leo, meaning the next four weeks will be about your connections in intimate relationships. The Sun will settle into your house of intimacy and privacy, emphasizing money or debt that belongs to your partner, joint resources and spiritual transformation. This is the house that rules death/rebirth experiences, intensity, psychic powers and astral experiences... which aren’t part your usual day to day occurrences or thoughts.

Around the time of the New Moon in Leo on Sunday, clarify intentions of what you want to invoke around sex and intimacy, regeneration, and financial investments. A serious financial opportunity could show up now, or your relationship with a lover could intensify and deepen. We’ll have another Leo New Moon (unusual) in a month that also brings an Eclipse, so a transformative shift could be on the way.

When Mars moves to Leo on Thursday, jealousy and possessiveness could arise and rock the boat, so try to stay focused. Mars is sex drive and ambition, and this part of your chart is about sex and intimacy, as well as other people’s money or debt, so there can be more passion and more stress and tension during this transit.


Aquarius & Aquarius Rising
The Sun moves into fire sign Leo on Saturday, emphasizing your seventh house of partnership and marriage for the next four weeks. This part of your chart is all about serious partnerships, creating harmony, and negotiating. This is where you balance your strong sense of individuality with working with another and making an offering.

Mars, the planet of action, also moves to Leo this week and can intensify things in general. Passions and tempers can rise, and you may feel more feisty and impulsive during this time.

We have a New Moon in Leo on Sunday morning, initiating a new lunar cycle that lasts for the next six months; around the new moon time, consider intentions to set that will impact your relationship, or your business partnerships, and what you want with regard to marriage/ partnering. Couples may decide to move in together or get married, or there might be a new collaboration with a creative partner. There will be a special second Leo New Moon in a month that brings an Eclipse! And eclipses always bring big changes, surprises and evolutionary upgrades, so clarify your vision for what you want to invoke and call into being, especially as it relates to harmonious partnership.


Pisces & Pisces Rising
The Sun leaves Cancer for Leo on Saturday, emphasizing your analytical sixth house; for the next solar cycle you’re encouraged to get things back in order, bringing organization to your home, your mind and your health. De-clutter and reorganize, release thoughts that cause emotional upsets, get all doctor visits taken care of, and get back into your fitness or workout routine. Realize that some stress you’re carrying and not dealing with could contribute to illness or feeling fatigued.

Mars, the planet of will, also moves into Leo this week (until September) and will give you a boost of courage, confidence and willpower in your health-focused endeavors. This could be what you need to kick a bad habit or to get motivated.

On Sunday morning we have the first of two Leo New Moons, so spend some time around the New Moon and set intentions around being of service to the world, your own well being, and being in a space of clarity. The next New Moon brings with it an Eclipse, which will certainly bring some revelations and necessary changes. Eclipses are known for zapping us awake where we’ve been resisting or unaware.

July 10-16 Horoscopes

Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, July 10 - Sunday, July 16

After several weeks of a constant barrage of astrological fireworks (and a long day of literal ones), we get a little time to catch our breath and deal with whatever was shaken loose. This week is on the quieter side although we’re still under the influence of certain aspects that aren’t comfortable. The Sun/Pluto opposition is a pretty volatile energy that we begin the week with. We’ll need to reflect and work with these energies and the others that were stirred up last week and the week before and integrate the experiences that are arising. There’s no reason to rush it, but we should try to deal with what we need to in a reasonable timeframe. Avoidance won’t really pay off in the end.
The energy will be deep, dark, and moody.
We will feel everything deeply- there is no surface level interaction with Pluto, Lord of the Underworld. We will confront our depths, our shadows, what we've kept hidden away. We may see power struggles and control issues, uncover secrets, run into projections, fears, unconscious motivations, obsessions.
Themes: shadows, forces, the unconscious, power, death and rebirth, deception and truth.
Don't turn away from your own darkness or shadows. Allow this energy to catalyze a potent shift and transformation. Focus on what you want transformed. Let the energy bring clearing, healing, and a rebirth.

Recommendations:
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)- Black tourmaline, sage
Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)- Black tourmaline, lavender
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)- Black tourmaline, chamomile
Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)- Black tourmaline, lemon balm

Aries & Aries Rising
This week begins where last week left off. The Sun/Pluto opposition could bring up some conflicts for you around balancing home life and career. With the Cancer Sun in your domestic region and the Lord of the Underworld in your tenth house of work and recognition, you may be pulled in different directions with both areas requiring your attention. You may be forced to make a hard decision about going back to work or changing your career, or maybe about a decision not expanding your family right now.
The moon will wane all week and we’ll have a half moon in Aries on Sunday. You can align with this energy by considering what habits or situations you can release, and consciously letting go of whatever you’ve been holding onto that isn’t healthy for you.

Taurus & Taurus Rising
This week begins with that Sun/Pluto opposition that we started feeling last week, bringing some potential tension between what you’re saying and what you’re really feeling and thinking about. The Cancer sun inhabits your house of self-expression and Pluto in Capricorn has nested in your ninth house of mental pursuits and honesty. These are the circumstances that incite power struggles and aggressive disagreements, so pay attention if you sense things are getting out of hand. It will likely work out better for you to avoid these situations, and instead of losing your temper, excuse yourself and cool down.
We have a half moon in Aries on Sunday, so this waning moon energy can assist you with releasing whatever you feel is holding you back or tying you down.

Gemini & Gemini Rising
The week starts with our annual Sun/Pluto opposition that we got a taste of last week. You may feel some tension with your financial decisions or stability arise, or realize that your financial situation is different from what you thought it was. The Cancer sun in your house of career and money colliding with shadowy Pluto in your area of assets, shared wealth and mergers may mean that you run into issues around joint resources or money that belongs to your partner, or you find you have to deal with your debt or money you owe to others. Avoiding the issue won’t help and can lead to more trouble, as will freaking out, so confront the situation directly and work to build security and stability. You can come up with a new plan if your put your brain power into it.
During the waning moon time this week, try to release patterns of worry or recurring habits that don’t serve you in the long run.

Cancer & Cancer Rising
To start the week we have the sun (in your sign) forming a tense opposition to intense Pluto, bringing this conflict into your serious partnerships. We started feeling this tension with Pluto’s opposition to Mars (also in your sign) last weekend. It’s possible that arguments and power struggles enter your closest relationship(s), making life feel less than harmonious. Unchecked ego trips, power struggles and outright violent outbursts are possible. Negotiations, contractual agreements, and even people’s word not be what they seem, so proceed with caution. Try to avoid fights on social media as well as in person, as things can get out of hand quickly. This isn’t only coming from other people, but it could manifest as coming from you to other people, Crab.
Let the waning moon energy help you dissolve and release whatever you want to clear out from your head, heart and energy field.

Leo & Leo Rising
As we start the week, we’re under the influence of a potentially contentious opposition between the Cancer Sun and Pluto, after already having some conflict with the recent Mars/Pluto opposition and a Sun/Jupiter square. The Cancer Sun in your house that rules sorrows and the subconscious bumping up against powerhouse Pluto in your wellness/analysis house could mean stress-related health issues or addictive or obsessive habits and coping mechanisms getting out of hand. Your may feel an urge to self-destruct, or find that a minor disagreement turns personal and nasty quickly. Just be aware of power plays coming from yourself as well as from others.The moon is waning down after the Capricorn Full Moon, and you can take this time to release some of the old energy or pain you’ve been carrying. The Sun will soon shift into your sign, lifting your mood and boosting your energy and outlook.

Virgo & Virgo Rising
This week begins with the Sun’s opposition to Pluto that we started to feel over the weekend, bringing some potential conflict with people you work with or friends, or with a lover. The sensitive Cancer Sun in your area of alliances collides with power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn, in your house of creativity and sex. Minor disagreements could turn to vengeful aggression pretty quickly, with inflated egos and underhanded power plays from one or both sides. Try to avoid it before it gets started, and know that you don’t need to try to fix things under this influence. You could feel more jealous now when it comes to romance or fame, or possibly see the shadow side of some relationships.
The Moon is waning all week so you can consciously release any energy or thoughts that you’re ready to part with.

Libra & Libra Rising
To start the week we have the Sun forming a tense opposition to power-hungry Pluto, bringing some conflict between your career and work life and your family and home life. We started feeling this tension with Pluto’s opposition to Mars in Cancer over the weekend. Pluto is in your house of home and family, women and children. And the Cancer Sun is in your career/professionalism house. There could be some intensity around motherhood or starting a family, or about your career and work life, ambition, success, or father figures. This tension can make people aggressive and manipulative, so be cautious about getting into arguments with your family about your aspirations or career plans, or with your employer about your family plans.
The waning moon this week can help you let go of whatever you’ve been grasping that is no longer in alignment with what you believe.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising
This week starts with the sensitive Cancer Sun opposing shadowy Pluto in Capricorn, making trouble in your communications and considerations. The Sun is in your house of travel and studies, while your ruling planet Pluto is in your self-expression house. It’s easy under these influences for tempers to flare and for misunderstandings to ignite into violent outbursts, so proceed with caution. There may be power struggles or manipulations that you’re involved with, so try to avoid these situations, and at least don’t instigate them. Focus on the travels, adventures, or the explorations into profound subject matter that make this Cancer season valuable to you and your evolution.
With the moon waning down from fullness this week, try to align with that energy by releasing constraints, resentments, jealousy, self-loathing or other mental constructs that, by holding on to them and keeping them hidden, create drama and pain in your life.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising
We begin the week with some of the irritating energy we felt last week. The moody Cancer Sun opposes dark and dramatic Pluto in Capricorn, bringing some conflict into your finances, inheritance, or joint assets that you share with either a romantic or business partner. Minor disagreements can turn to destructive aggression quickly, and tempers flare over money and power. Power plays, underhanded or manipulative dealings, or hidden agendas may surface in negotiations now, so be extra cautious.
The moon is waning all week, so you can tune into that energy of release and consciously let go of some of the habits, compulsions or patterns that contribute to stress or pain in your life. The New Moon will arrive again next weekend and you’ll have a fresh start.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising
This week begins where last week left off, and we’re feeling squeezed under the Sun/Pluto opposition. The sensitive Cancer Sun in your relationship sector versus the Underworld planet Pluto in your sign may mean that you find yourself in a standoff with someone, and minor irritations could turn into aggressive outbursts. Pluto’s shadowy influence could make you more suspicious, so watch out for that tendency, and try not to project your stuff onto the other person or manipulate the situation in a shady way, even if it feels justified. Your temper may get ignited when dealing with a chaotic situation in one of your relationships and your patience for other people’s issues will be low.
The Full Moon was in your sign and first house over the weekend, so the moon is waning this week; tune into this lunar energy and release any negative coping mechanisms or thought patterns that aren’t working or uplifting to you any longer.  

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising
We start the week under the influence of the intense energies we felt last week. The sensitive Cancer Sun makes an annual opposition to powerhouse Pluto in Capricorn, your house of sorrows and rest. This could show up in the general mood, but more specifically you may have zero patience or tolerance for dealing with other people’s issues. Minor misunderstandings could turn easily to hostile outbursts under this influence. With Pluto in this part of your chart, be aware of hidden agendas or manipulative behaviors of others, and even your own resentments and old self-destructive patterns showing up.
After the Full Capricorn Moon over the weekend, the moon wanes all this week, so channel this lunar energy. Look honestly at negative patterns and old pain, see what you’ve learned and integrated, and consciously sift through and let go of as much non-beneficial stuff as you can. Align with the unseen forces on your side and welcome healing in all its forms.

Pisces & Pisces Rising
The tense astrological influences of last week spill over into this week, and we begin the week feeling the Sun/Pluto opposition. The sensitive Cancer Sun in your sex and love house clashes with powerful Pluto in Capricorn in your eleventh house of friendship, stirring up hostilities and bad tempers. Everyone may seem to be operating from their shadow side right now, with ego trips, power plays and hidden agendas - even you, Pisces. So be aware of any manipulation and watch out for tempers turning aggressive from minor irritations. With Pluto in your house of group dynamics and alliances, there could be trouble in your friend group this week; try to stay diplomatic.
The Moon wanes all week, so align with the lunar energies and release whatever petrification you’ve gathered in your heart as you access and name it or as it comes up.

July 3-July 9 Horoscopes

Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, July 3 - Sunday, July 9  

This week both Venus and Mercury are on the move, changing signs on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively. The love planet moves into flirty, flighty Gemini and the planet of communication and the mind enters boastful Leo. Venus in Taurus has been lovely, as it usually is, and now with the move to Gemini the way we relate and love may shift; we may engage with our loved ones more from our heads, making an intellectual connection rather than feeling heavy emotions. While in Gemini, Venus is super flirty and lighthearted and we may find ourselves being more careless with spending money. With Mercury’s move our communications will be more confident and our leadership qualities can come through. We’ll be more direct but could also be more boastful or arrogant. Expressions in the arts, in theatre and music will be successful now.

We’ll experience a Mercury/Chiron trine, a Sun/Neptune trine, a Sun/Pluto opposition to name a few. And on Saturday night we’ll have a Full Moon in Capricorn, bringing closure to the lunar cycle that began six months ago during Capricorn season.

July 4 is America’s solar return (yes, the US is a Cancer… I’ve discussed this a bit in my astro talks over many years if you’ve studied with me in person). I’m certainly not a political astrologer and do not want to be- my specialty is in a different area- but there are some aspects that are hard to ignore. And as much as I don’t want to get into it, and have avoided it actively, some things just jump out and force me to mention them briefly (there are plenty of astrologers who focus on political astrology and are good at it, so I defer to them to write about these things). This is an intense, infuriating, sick and sad time for the US… which is having its nodal return this year (Leo N Node).

I can’t quite seem to put it all into a cohesive thought or clear perspective to say anything meaningful as a teacher/writer/interpreter yet… it’s still churning and cooking. It is a challenge to find balance between being awake and aware but also needing solitude and seclusion away from social media and all the terrible things, between seeing the reality and being outraged and also seeing potential underneath the upheaval and holding onto hope. Sometimes I simply cannot take any more in, but feel guilty looking away, as if soul self-care and social consciousness in our current political situation are at such extreme ends of the spectrum that they can’t be reconciled. Right now I can only recommend monitoring and being responsible for your own psychology, and rather than looking out comparing how everyone else is responding or handling things, to get genuinely rooted into yourself, check in, and be honest about what you can and cannot do each day.

Happy birthday, America.

Aries & Aries Rising

This week’s astrology picks right up where we left off last week, and we have plenty going on. On Tuesday the love planet moves to Gemini for a bit, which is your communication area. That means all the things related to relationships or finances will be where your mind is and what you’re eager to discuss, and it would be a good time to reach out to family you want to connect with, or invest in travels or studies that are meaningful to you.

The next day Mercury moves to Leo, bringing your thoughts to love and romance, sex and seduction, art and creativity. This could be a great time for an art exhibit or to talk about love or having children or what your passions are. You may even write some lovely poetry or create an art piece for your beloved.

Finally, we have a full moon in Capricorn on Saturday night, illuminating your tenth house of success and career goals. Whatever seeds you planted in December at the Capricorn new moon are growing and manifesting now. You could get some important news, receive some big recognition, even get a raise or promotion. The usual lunacy will accompany this full moon like all others, but for you there should be a luminous silver lining to it.

Taurus & Taurus Rising

On Tuesday Venus, planet of relating and finances, moves into Gemini and your money house; this means business boons and career boosts and even an increase to your income are all possibilities. Venus rules money, abundance, gifts and this part of your chart is about money and security and self-worth. Plan, invest, save, and create new lucrative sources of income for yourself.

Mercury also shifts signs this week, moving to Leo on Wednesday evening. The planet of communication and mental activity will relocate to your house of home and domesticity. Your thoughts, plans and discussions will revolve around family, homelife, security, women and children… you could be talking to your partner about expanding your family, remodeling or relocating, or maybe you’ll reach out to a mother figure or mentor for advice.

A full moon on Saturday in Capricorn lights up your house of travel, studies and mental pursuits. This full moon energy could bring news or revelations, blunt talk and honesty, or maybe travel opportunities. Think about the intentions you set back during Capricorn season for clues.

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Venus, the planet of love and money, moves into your sign on Tuesday, bringing a new infusion of good vibes, loving energy and expressive romance to your life. There could also be a financial windfall in the works since Venus rules finances, abundance, worth, and gifts.

On Wednesday evening Mercury shifts into Leo. The communication planet, your ruler, moving into your communication house may just make your month. This aspect puts you in your wheelhouse, Gemini and you should take advantage of it; self-expression of every kind will be strong, sharing your ideas, connecting with family, studying, realizations, building community will all be enhanced and supported. If there are any projects or presentations to do, trips to take, or connections to make, now is your time.

Then on Saturday night we’ll have a full moon in Capricorn, bringing the usual lunacy and revelations. The themes of this moon for you, due to placement, include shared wealth, merging with another, sex, and even astral experiences. Think sex, death and rebirth territory.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

On Tuesday we’ll have love and beauty planet Venus move into airy Gemini. During her stay in this part of your chart you may want to take some alone time, process old heartache and get closure on those parts of your life, or look inside of yourself for healing and compassion.

With discernment rather than moodiness, let go of habits of self-undoing behavior, see hidden agendas you and others may have, forgive, and clear some karma.

Mercury moves on Wednesday, shifting from your sign into Leo. Your financial stability or career could get a boost, or you could at least open a dialog about improving finances, starting a new career, or making more money doing what you enjoy. Your mind should shift to money matters during this time so you can move toward your goals.

This weekend we have a Capricorn full moon bringing luminous energy to your relationships, partnerships or marriage. Full moons are high energy, and they can often bring news or information. Landing in this part of your chart means you could get some illumination about your connections, serious partnerships or even contractual agreements.

Leo & Leo Rising

This Wednesday Mercury, the mental planet, moves into your sign and first house. This is the most personal area and is all about your self-hood. Your thoughts, memories and conversations will be close to your heart and all about you, your hopes and desires and favorites. This shouldn’t be a problem for you, Leo. ;) You may even decide it’s time for a makeover, new haircut or new look (your appearance is part of this house).

Venus moves into Gemini on Tuesday and brings new energy and affection into your friendships and to the relationships you have with those you work with and the groups you’re a part of. You could even feel a love connection blossom with a friend. Your long term dreams will be infused with more beauty and your vision for your life can expand here.

On Saturday we have a Capricorn full moon in your area of service and health. Full moons bring high energy and even news or realizations; you could get health-related news or information about your pet or someone you work with. Any health related intentions you set six months ago (during Capricorn season) should be manifesting or becoming clear now.

Virgo & Virgo Rising

This week both Venus and Mercury change signs. Venus moves to Gemini on Tuesday, shifting energy to your professional world, your community standing and your success. Venus rules over love and relationships as well as money matters, so this can be a beneficial time to grow your material success. You may have advice coming in from a father figure or male mentor that will be helpful.

On Wednesday your ruling planet Mercury moves to Leo, your house of self-imposed limitations and karma. You may need more solitude and seclusion now, rest, and healing. Release self-defeating behavior and focus on getting closure in order to heal. Your thoughts may veer into more mystical, hidden and spiritual themes.

We have a full moon in Capricorn coming up on Saturday, illuminating the part of your chart that rules passion, creativity, love and romance, sex and fertility. Often full moons bring completion or endings to cycles and heightened emotions. Think about what was initiated six months ago during Capricorn season- this may be the end of that cycle. You could get news about a love affair or artistic endeavor around full moon time.

Libra & Libra Rising

On Tuesday, your ruling planet Venus moves into Gemini, your house of travel and philosophy. You may fall in love with a foreigner, philosopher, scientist or artist, or get married abroad. The arts, studies, long journeys, and self-discovery will be what you’re drawn to now.

Mercury, the mental planet, shifts signs as well, nesting in Leo and your house of selfless service and well being; this is a good context for analysis and organization, health related pursuits and being helpful in the world by offering your gifts. Connect with the people you work with and try to make a plan for your health care during this time.

Then on Saturday we have a Capricorn full moon bringing the usual heightened emotional state and completion of the lunar cycle. This moon shines on your house of family and home, the natural house of the moon, and the full moon themes will be based on this area. You may receive news or reach the end of a cycle related to parents, children, home improvement plans, a relocation, or other domestic affairs. Self-care and roots/ancestors are also potential themes that may arise.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Venus, the planet of finances, love and beauty, makes her way into Gemini on Tuesday, and enlivens your sex and intimacy sector. You could partner with someone in love or business now, merging physically and emotionally or financially, receive a gift or inheritance, or come into money or resources through a partner. This is one of the more mystical and intense houses in your chart.

The next day Mercury changes signs, moving into Leo and your career sector. This would be a good opportunity to make some long term plans about your profession, to express your talents and improve your expertise, and essentially to grow your material success.

This weekend we have a full moon in Capricorn. Full moons bring out strong emotions and sometimes craziness, and in your communication sector, you could be bold verbally or in your correspondence, or maybe you’ll get some important news about your family or  travels. The intentions you set six months ago during Capricorn season are manifesting now.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

This week both Venus and Mercury change signs, on Tuesday and Wednesday. The planet of love and money shifts to Gemini and your relationship area. This could mean that you’ll be more sensitive to creating harmony in your serious partnerships, both business and personal, and you could enjoy some social and financial pleasures. Contracts and negotiations should be successful during this time.

The planet of communication, Mercury, shifts to Leo, your house of travel and deep studies. This makes it a good time for you to pursue educational and travel opportunities and to dive into mental pursuits. You may be more honest and blunt in your communications and take more risks now in general.

We have a full moon in Capricorn on Saturday illuminating your money house. As with all full moons, there will be heightened emotions and the end of a cycle - the intentions set six months ago at the Capricorn new moon are now manifested. You could get some important news about financial prospects or your career or possessions. Let the fullness of this luminary remind you of your self-worth and value.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

This weekend, on Saturday, we have a full moon in your sign, the completion of the lunar cycle that began during your birthday month at your new moon. Think back to those intentions you set and seeds you sowed during your season and see how they’ve manifested or are growing. Remember your inherent perfection and acknowledge the fullness of your life and what you’re grateful for.

Venus, the planet of love and money, moves into Gemini on Tuesday, your health house. You may invest money in fitness or health now, or maybe something in the wellness field provides income for you. Get rid of what causes worry, which can lead to illness, and re-organize your work and living spaces for optimum energetic flow. You’ll be drawn to beautifying and adorning now.

The mental planet Mercury shifts to Leo on Wednesday, to your third house (natural house) of communication. The communication planet is at home in the communication part of your chart, giving you success in self-expression, with writing, speaking, and technology, and increasing your bright ideas and clear perceptivity.

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

On Tuesday evening Venus, the planet of love and worth, enters airy Gemini and brings new energy to your house of sex and love. Romance, sex and seduction, creative pursuits and passions, even fame and fertility are encouraged and enlivened here. With the love planet nesting in your house of heart you should have plenty of beautiful experiences to encounter during this transit.

The planet of the mind, Mercury, also changes signs, moving to Leo; your thoughts and musings, conversations and connections will be about serious partnerships. This is your area of relationships and marriage, but business partnerships, negotiations and contractual agreements will also be supported now.

We have a full moon in Capricorn on Saturday night shining on your mystical twelfth house. Full moons generally incite lunacy and heightened emotional responses, but they also signify completion of a cycle, and this part of your chart is about completion and closure. You may get news of a hidden agenda, heal a wound from your past, and you’ll certainly have strong psychic powers. Try to rest deeply and commune with la luna, reflecting and healing.

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Venus, planet of love and beauty, changes signs and moves to Gemini on Tuesday. She’ll reside in your house of home, bringing focus to self-care and your relationships with your partner, parents, children, etc. You could invest in home improvements now, real estate, or beautification, expand your family somehow. Adoration of and appreciation for your closest intimates and recognizing what you value most are themes for you.

The communication planet Mercury moves to Leo and your house of wellness; start organizing your space, get your health back on track by getting doctor appointments out of the way, buy a new gym membership, etc.

We have a full moon this week in Capricorn, which illuminates your alliances, friendships, memberships, and long term goals and objectives. The intentions you set six months ago during Capricorn season are unfolding now. You could get news or have revelations, benefit from some good fortune or re-align with your life’s vision under this moon’s influence.

June 26-July 2

Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, June 26- Sunday, July 2  

We’ve just had the shift from communicative Gemini to sensitive Cancer sun cycle, and the new moon in Cancer initiated a new moon cycle for us to manifest and activate new intentions. This week is quieter than last week when it comes to major movements, but there are some interesting aspects in play. We’re certainly still under the influence of so much Cancer energy and the sensitivity, moodiness and empathy that brings. The main shift this week will be Chiron, the wounded and healed healer, turning retrograde on Friday night in Pisces. Chiron will be retrograde until December. When a planet (or planetoid) stations (the day it turns direct or retrograde), it can be disorienting or discombobulating, as though that planet’s energies are all exposed, erratic and wild… these days are pivotal and often set in motion some changes. If this year marks your 50th birthday, you’re having your Chiron return (sometimes it happens at 49 or 51). It’s a notable milestone, and just like your Saturn return at age 29ish, the more self-awareness and sensitivity you have going in, the more ease and capacity you’ll have while moving through this rite of passage. I like Chiron’s complexity as an archetype and value the insight he brings. This transit does unearth our oldest and deepest wounds, as Chiron represents in our chart where we feel fundamentally wounded, but there are intelligent and productive ways to work with it.

The moon is waxing and moves through Leo, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio this week. And there will be a Mars/Pluto opposition that I’m paying attention to, a Mercury/Pluto opposition, and Mercury will trine Neptune and square Jupiter.

*If you’re having your Chiron return this year, I’m offering a Chiron Return Special ($44) to assist you during this transformative milestone. Email wildmoonwisdom@gmail.com with the subject "Chiron rx" in the subject line to sign up.

Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)- Lucid dreaming or dreamwork

Aries & Aries Rising

Chiron, the wounded and healed healer, turns retrograde in Pisces on Friday night. Station days are pivotal and with Chiron in your house of sorrows and self-undoing, it is likely that a transformation is initiated or set in motion on Friday. During this transit let the broken parts of yourself be exposed, let the hidden agendas be revealed so that you can retrieve your lost parts of your soul. Indulge in self-care in the form of energetic and mental wellness and physical pampering. Both Neptune and Chiron will be retrograde in Pisces, creating a perfect storm of potential spiritual transformation and personal evolution.

Taurus & Taurus Rising

On Friday night the wounded healer Chiron stations and turns retrograde in Pisces. During this transit, which will last until December, you could have some healing work to do in your friendships or in a group you belong to. You could be triggered and have an old wound resurface, or have some old relationship ghosts return to haunt you now. Embrace this opportunity for growth and transformation, pay attention to where you feel pulled to do this work… This transit could also affect your long-term dreams, your objectives, or intellectual pleasures. Neptune just recently turned retrograde in this same sign so there’s a chance to heal hurts and non-beneficial thinking and relating.

Gemini & Gemini Rising

This week the wounded and healed healer, Chiron, stations and turns retrograde in Pisces. This transit will activate your house of career and achievement. From now until December Chiron will likely stir up some old wounds related to father figures, men, money and material success, your reputation. There could be something about your self image, your ability to accept responsibility, what you accomplish out in the world that comes up now that needs to be addressed. Neptune, the planet of dreams, recently turned retrograde in Pisces, so there is potential for spiritual transformation over these next months. Pay extra attention to any illnesses that occur during this transit.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

On Friday the wounded and healed healer Chiron stations and turns retrograde in Pisces. This transit lasts until December and occurs in your house of mental exploration. During this time, although you may feel vulnerable and hesitant, be open to the discomfort and welcome this opportunity to have a spiritual transformation. Sometimes Chiron transits can bring illness or a health crisis, so listen to your mind and body and take extra care of yourself now. This is a time to look honestly at your old wounds and how they play out in daily life when not addressed. Neptune recently turned retrograde in this same area, so there’s already dynamic energy unfolding around themes of travel, study, higher education, philosophy, discovery and freedom.

Leo & Leo Rising

Chiron, the wounded and healed healer of the zodiac, stations and turns retrograde on Friday. This transit lasts until December and is in your house of merging. Chiron transits can sometimes bring a health issue, so make sure to take care of yourself, and if there is an illness that comes up, pay attention to it. It’s possible that a surgery might be needed during this period. During these next months Chiron’s retrograde will encourage your own review of how old wounds are still affecting you and renew a commitment to pay attention to these primary hurts and deal with them in a straightforward way. There could be some wounds around sex and intimacy that show up, or fears about death or the afterlife.

Neptune, the dreamy planet, is also in this part of your chart and turned retrograde a week ago. Listen to your intuition and trust it.

Virgo & Virgo Rising

This Friday Chiron stations and turns retrograde. Chiron is the wounded and healed healer, showing us where our fundamental hurts live inside us, and while retrograde, there’s a chance to be broken open in a deeper way so that true healing can occur. This retrograde cycle, which lasts until December, will be in your relationship sector and could stir up an old memory of a painful experience that gets activated and animated in your current circumstances. The themes of these old wounds could be around marriage or divorce (maybe of parents), contracts, open enemies, or serious partnerships in either personal or business realms. Take care of yourself, your health and emotional well being during this transit.

Neptune is also recently retrograde in this same area, so there’s potential for deep work and spiritual transformation in the next months.

Libra & Libra Rising

On Friday of this week Chiron turns retrograde in Pisces, your house of wellness. Chiron is the healer of the zodiac, using his wounds to inspire his work of healing others. Now until December may be a time for you to explore the apparent woundings you’re experiencing, determine which are old hurts triggered by current circumstances, and begin the work to restore wholeness in certain areas. Chiron transits can sometimes bring a health crisis or physical symptoms, so pay attention to your body and take extra care of yourself. Eliminate people and situations that drain your vitality and cause mental stress.

Neptune, the planet of spirituality, also just recently turned retrograde in Pisces, so there’s a lot of energy in this part of your chart. Think of this as inner housekeeping and tending to a sort of soul retrieval for the disconnected parts of yourself.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Neptune, the spiritual planet, recently turned retrograde in Pisces, your house of art and the heart. You’re getting accustomed to the dream work or spiritual work you’re doing with this transit and this week, on Friday, this part of your chart gets more attention. Chiron, the healer of the zodiac, turns retrograde in Pisces until December. During this retrograde cycle you could feel broken open in a new way, with an opportunity to mend in a harmonious way, through a sort of soul retrieval to reanimate the lost parts of yourself. Or you may find that what feels like a fresh wound is actually an activated old wound. Take care of your health during this time, and your mental wellness too. This part of your chart is all about creativity, artistic and sexual expression, love and romance, amusement and joy, even fertility; look deeply at where you feel restricted in art, sex, joy and or fun.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

This Friday Chiron, the wounded and healed healer, turns retrograde in Pisces, your domestic domain. During this transit, that lasts until December, you may feel triggered in the present which activates an old wounding you’re still carrying. You may become aware of just how many old hurts are still haunting you and causing conflict in the present. Chiron’s retrograde cycle could also bring an illness or health issue, so pay attention for that and take care of yourself. Any old stuff about mothers or children, family, roots and ancestors, or home that arises can be addressed and worked with consciously now, so that a clearing and healing is possible.

Recently Neptune just turned retrograde in Pisces and this same part of your chart, so there will be a lot of energy if spiritual transformation or evolution there for you to work with.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

On Friday Chiron stations and turns retrograde in Pisces, your communication sector. Chiron is the healer of the zodiac, called the wounded and healed healer, and during this cycle which lasts until December, you’ll have the opportunity for healing and inner work. You could feel like you’re having a wounding experience and upon closer investigation see that the experience is a trigger that has unearthed a buried wound from the past. This transit could also stir up an illness or health issue, so make sure to take good care of yourself and your health now. Neptune, the planet of dreams, is also retrograde in this part of your chart, so the potential for a minor dark night of the soul or illness followed by reintegration and spiritual transformation are there. Old pain related to self-expression or your family ties or community could surface for you to deal with head on, Cap.

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

This Friday, Chiron, the wounded and healed healer, turns retrograde in Pisces. This area of your chart deals with money and worth, finances and possessions, stability and your career security. You may find that during this retrograde cycle, which lasts until December, you encounter health issues or an illness that needs to be addressed. Take care of yourself and guard against mental and emotional stress. You may also find yourself in a situation that triggers or activates buried pain from an old wound, likely about money or self-worth. Embrace the discomfort and explore this old stuff so that there can be a reintegration, calling back the disconnected parts of your soul.

Neptune, the dreamy planet, is also retrograde in this exact part of your chart so your inner work and contemplations have already begun. This exploration can lead to another evolution of senses, deeper understanding of yourself and psyche and ultimately, healing.

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Your ruling planet Neptune turned retrograde in your sign recently, sensitizing your senses to a higher spiritual energy. Your already empathic and psychic nature could be feeling overwhelmed with householder life now, and either confused about your purpose or gaining deeper insights into your spiritual purpose in life.

Chiron, the wounded and healed healer, stations and turns retrograde on Friday night-- this also happens in Pisces and your first house, bringing even more spiritual, transformative and evolutionary vibes up close and personal. This retrograde cycle lasts until December, and in these next months you could experience an illness or health issue, so take extra care of yourself. You may notice that when you feel hurt now you can trace this trigger back to a much older wounding that was never fully resolved, or perhaps denied and repressed completely. Now is the time to unearth some of these old wounds and process and heal these disconnected places in your body, soul or psyche.

Summer Solstice Shift

Monday, June 19 brings Midsummer Eve, an evening of flickering candles and divination, mugwort and deep dreams.

Tuesday, June 20 is Summer Solstice (in the Northern hemisphere) or Litha - the pinnacle and purna (fullness) of the Light, the triumphant day of the Sun, the longest day and shortest night of the year. Astrologically, Solstice is initiated when the sun moves into 0 degrees Cancer, which is exact at 9:24pm PDT on Tuesday night. Solstice is a day of radiance and boundless light, a time to celebrate abundance and offer gratitude.

The great and shining Sun reaches its perfection and fullness, and in a moment’s time we head into the dark half of the year. It will still be summer for quite some time, but we know that the light wanes and the darkness builds. This is the wheel of the year, turning once again…

Our lives, when aligned with nature’s way, pulse in this same way.

We are in familiar territory; life is constantly shifting and changing, bringing beauty and challenges, and there’s always more. That is the promise of life: the promise that there will always be more, more of everything. When I am asked what is happening astrologically, I say, “Everything. All the time.” And it’s true.

This is happening in your lives as well, the unfolding and releasing, invoking and establishing. There is a constant pulsing of life flowing, waxing and waning, expanding and contracting. The Great Creatrix blinking us into into being, disappearing us, and bringing us back again. Birth, death, rebirth. We have an intimate understanding of this experience living life as householders on a path, navigating the exquisite and terrifying, holding the midline of ourselves and our sadhana (true spiritual practice).

Many are going through big changes at this time, some unexpected, and the enormity of the destabilization and confusion can be overwhelming. This is a time of immense amplification and acceleration. Some of you may feel like you’ve been startled by sudden change, your shell cracked open, your paradigm shifting. Remember to hold the midline and trust, even in the uncontrollable changes that seem to be devouring you. Shakti, the creative potency of the Universe is reorganizing you, and your life.

This can feel uncomfortable, even unbearable, but through our practices we are becoming more skilled at allowing every circumstance of life to take us into the molten radiance of our hearts. That is yoga. It takes time and in the midst of it it isn’t pretty, it doesn’t feel good, and sometimes there is nothing to do but let the feelings and energies wash over you as though standing under a powerful waterfall.

Feel everything.

Try to stay rooted, in your belly and bones, with your heart open in radical vulnerability, and hold on. Love yourself fiercely and allow your compassion to turn inward as a new practice. Make art with your tears and frustrations, dig your fingers and toes into the black earth to ground, and remember that you belong. Light a fire in your heart. More will unfold- there’s more to the story.

On this Solstice, make a date with the Sun, bask in the warmth and relish the sunshine. The fullness of the light breaks into the beginning of the dark in its ancient way. At sunset say goodbye to the Sun disappearing into the sea, to be reborn in the sky on Winter Solstice.

Late Tuesday evening, light a candle and renew your commitments and offer your blessings. Bow to the golden radiance that burns brightly inside your own shining heart.

June 19-25 Horoscopes

Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, June 19 - Sunday, June 25

This week is Summer Solstice (in the Northern hemisphere) or Litha, another turn in the Wheel of the Year. This represents the triumphant day of the Sun, the longest day and shortest night of the year. Astrologically, Solstice is initiated when the sun moves into 0º Cancer, which will occur at 9:24pm PDT on Tuesday. So on Tuesday we’ll also enter Cancer solar cycle, and right away on Friday we’ll have our Cancer new moon, the starting point and new beginning for Cancer suns. The moon is the ruler of the sign of Cancer and bestows upon the Crab an ability to connect emotionally and a deep sensitivity. This sign rules the breasts and belly. On Wednesday in the early morning hours Mercury, the mental planet, moves into the sign of Cancer also. We’ll be swimming in a sea of feelings for a while. So if your sun or ascendant are in Cancer, this will be your week! And if you’re everyone else… enjoy Solstice. :)

Aries & Aries Rising
We celebrate Summer Solstice this week, when the sun moves into the sign of Cancer which happens Tuesday night. This new Cancer sun cycle of four weeks is in your house of home and family. And the new moon on Friday night is also in Cancer, which means you can set intentions now that will grow for the next six months that revolve around your homelife. Themes for this Crab season include domestic affairs, relocating or redecorating, women and mother-figures, children, foundations, self-care and home.

The planet of communication, Mercury, also moves to Cancer on Wednesday, keeping the focus of your thoughts and conversations on family matters. This would be an ideal time to discuss expanding your family, real estate, your parents, to spend time with and get insight from female mentors or mother-figures in life, or to just invest more time and energy into your family members and homelife. All of this water makes you uncomfortable for the most part, but it could be beneficial to soften just a little and look for ways to create a cozy and stable home.

Taurus & Taurus Rising
This week we celebrate Summer Solstice, when the sun moves into Cancer on Tuesday night. For the next four weeks, your attention will be focused on communication, travel and family ties. On Friday there’s a new moon in Cancer, a time for you to set new intentions which will grow for the next six months, with themes of ideas and technology, community and family, travel and self-expression.

The communication planet Mercury moves into Cancer and this part of your chart on Wednesday, joining the party. This is an optimal placement in your chart for inspired and clear speech and logic and for doing such things as applying for artist residencies or writing jobs, learning a new manual skill or studying a new subject.

As an earth sign all of this water energy could make you feel heavier than usual, or maybe cloud your perceptions slightly, so stay focused on your goals and use this energy to your advantage.

Gemini & Gemini Rising
It’s Summer Solstice this week, happening on Tuesday night when the sun enters the sign of Cancer. This initiates a new solar cycle, so for the next four weeks your energy will shift to second house themes: money, career, possessions, stability, and self-worth. This will be a great month to focus on your financial success and making any plans or moves that will further your career. We have a new moon in Cancer on Friday, so the intentions that you set will be about abundance and wealth and worth. These intentions will grow until the full Cancer moon six months from now.

Mercury, the planet of the mind, joins the sun in Cancer on Wednesday moving into this same part of your chart. Your thoughts and conversations will center on finances. This is a great time for planning new sources of income and increasing your earning power.

Cancer & Cancer Rising
This is a good week for you, with a lot of action in your first house. The sun moves into your sign on Tuesday evening making it your solar return month. This also initiates Summer Solstice, when the sun reaches 0º Cancer. This is the longest day of the year and a personally significant day for you to contemplate how far you’ve come and what you’re grateful for.

Also this week you’ll have Mercury joining your sign and first house. Mercury is the planet of communication and thinking, so your considerations will be clear, communication direct and self-expression strong.

Your new moon of the year comes quickly, happening this week on Friday night. This Cancer new moon is special for you, a time to set intentions for how you want to live. These seeds planted will grow until the full moon in your sign six months from now. Tune in to your intuition and align yourself with yourself with this seasonal and energetic shift; speak out like a spell your heart’s desires for this new year.

Leo & Leo Rising
This week we celebrate Solstice, the longest day of the year, triumph of the sun, your ruler. The sun enters the sign of Cancer on Tuesday night and initiates Cancer sun cycle; for the next month you’ll feel compelled to get rest and do some healing. Since it’s the month before your solar return, the sun spends time in your house of endings and closure and you get to release self-defeating behaviors and clear old karma. This is a necessary time for you, so that you can look honestly at your life and clear out what’s holding your back and sabotaging your joy.

Mercury, the communication planet, also moves to Cancer this week, further emphasizing the need to let go of disappointments and think about ways to enact compassion and self-acceptance. Hidden agendas and secrets could come to light now, which only assists your transformation.

There’s a significant new moon in Cancer on Friday night in this same part of your chart; set some intentions to let go of sorrows and self-defeating tendencies and to invoke your dreams.

Virgo & Virgo Rising
This week is Summer Solstice, when the sun moves into Cancer. This new sun cycle in your house of friends and wishes begins on Tuesday evening. For the next four weeks your energy will be focused on alliances, intellectual pleasures, the groups you belong to, and your goals and objectives in life.

Mercury, the mental planet, joins the sun in Cancer and your eleventh house. This will be a more social time period for you, and you’ll be able to deepen friendships and make new acquaintances. Think about and talk about things like what you value in friendship, what you enjoy about other people, your idealism and your long term goals.

Also, on Friday evening we have a Cancer new moon initiating a new lunar cycle. Set intentions for this new beginning, clarify your vision and remember your dreams.

Libra & Libra Rising
This week the sun moves into the sign of Cancer, making it Summer Solstice. The sun enters the sensitive sign and your career sector on Tuesday evening. For the next month your attention will turn to work, your achievements, and material success. This part of your chart also connects you to fathers and father figures, and all aspects of your profession.

On Wednesday, Mercury, the planet of the mind, joins the sun in Cancer and your tenth house. This is a great time to verbally express your long term goals, ask for a raise or promotion, or have a brainstorming session with an expert in your field or male mentor or father figure.

Additionally, there’s a new moon in Cancer on Friday night, further emphasizing work and achievement; set intentions for this new lunar cycle all about success, ambition and achievement in the work you do in the world.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising
We celebrate the turning of the wheel of the year this week: Summer Solstice is on Tuesday. This also means that the sun is shifting into Cancer, your house of studies and travel. For the next four weeks, you’ll be drawn to explore new educational pathways, higher education, foreign travel, religion and philosophy and self-discovery.

Then on Wednesday, the mental planet Mercury also moves to Cancer and this part of your chart. Your mental energy and conversations will be all about these ninth house themes. Mental pursuits, blunt talk and honesty will come to you with great ease.

And finally, we have a new moon in Cancer on Friday night. This new lunar cycle will wax for the next six months until the full Cancer moon, so set intentions now for travel plans, freedom, and new explorations.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising
We celebrate the solar festival of Solstice this week, when the sun moves into the sign of Cancer on Tuesday evening. For the next month, your attention will be focused on themes of intimacy and privacy, shared resources, and astral experiences. You may decide to move in with a lover or join forces with a business partner now, or there may be an inheritance.

Mercury, the planet of communication, moves into Cancer on Wednesday and into this same realm. This implies that your thoughts and conversations will center on these same themes.

You may need to discuss sex or shared wealth or your spiritual experiences.

In addition, we have a new moon in Cancer on Friday night, beginning a new lunar cycle. Set intentions for the new moon keeping with these same themes. You can invoke deeper intimacy with a partner or to have more psychic sensitivity to spiritual experiences for example.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising
This week we celebrate Summer Solstice and the sun moving into Cancer on Tuesday. This shifts your energy to relationships, partnerships and marriage for the next month. This part of your chart is all about the mate your choose in life, the people you go into business with, the partnerships you make.

Mercury, the planet of the mind, joins the sun in Cancer on Wednesday and moves more mental energy and focus to your partnership house. This would be a good time to make negotiations, enter into a contractual agreement, or make things official with your love.

There’s also a new moon this week in Cancer, on Friday night. Set your new moon intentions for the next lunar cycle all about relationships and harmony within your serious partnerships.

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising
We’ve arrived at Solstice, and this week on Tuesday the sun moves into Cancer, your house of health. For the next four weeks of this cycle your attention will turn to health and spiritual hygiene. Get rid of anything that causes so much stress it makes you sick. And get re-organized at home and in the office. Make your health a priority now.

Mercury, the mental planet, also moves into Cancer this week and puts more of your mental energy and focus on your well being. This would be a good time to get doctors visits and check ups done.

The new moon on Friday evening is also in sensitive Cancer. Set your new moon intentions for this new cycle that deal with wellness, clarity, how you are in service in the world, and your pets.

Pisces & Pisces Rising
This week we celebrate Summer Solstice, when the sun moves into the sign of Cancer. For the next four weeks of this sun cycle your attention will be on art and romance. You may fall in love or make a commitment now, or explore your creative passions in a new way…

The planet of the mind, Mercury, also moves to Cancer this week, on Wednesday early morning. Your mental energy, thoughts, visions, and your conversations will be more focused on love, sex and art.

And then on Friday night we have a new moon in Cancer in this same part of your chart. Set intentions for this new lunar cycle about love and romance, fertility and children, pleasure, and creative expression. The mental seeds that you plant now will grow for the next six months and bloom at the Cancer full moon.

June 12-18 Horoscopes

Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, June 12 - Sunday, June 18  

This week we’re still adjusting to the dynamic astrology of last week and the weekend before that. Jupiter is getting used to direct motion and we are ready and waiting for the magic-maker’s positivity and expansion in our lives. At this point, we’ll take anything we can get, and Jupiter is a powerhouse planet of good vibes. This week another outer planet causes a stir; Neptune turns retrograde until November 22. Neptune is retrograde about half of the year, so it’s not a new experience but maybe one that you’re just becoming aware of. There’s plenty to say about this but in general during this time the empaths are more empathic, the dreamers are dreamier, and our delusional and addictive tendencies can surface and be more pronounced, so we should be aware. After last week’s movement, Venus is happy to be at home in Taurus and Mercury is best suited for Gemini, so many of the aggravations that surfaced over the past weeks, especially in romantic partnerships or with loved ones, will ease up now. And it’s almost time for Solstice!?!
xo, KK

Some notable aspects:
Tuesday- Mercury/Jupiter trine, Mercury/Neptune square
Thursday- Sun/Saturn opposition
Friday- Neptune rx in Pisces
Sunday- Moon/Jupiter opposition, Mercury/Saturn opposition

Recommendations:
I am recommending black tourmaline for all signs this week in particular, and for the rest of Neptune’s retrograde cycle as protection from psychic attack and to ward off unwanted energies. It will also help you to ground. In addition, I’m recommending working with Gardenia and Lily flowers (*some lilies are poisonous to cats so please take precautions) which are both lunar plants associated with the water element. Gardenias can be placed on your altar or you can use the dried petals sprinkled around a room to increase ease and peacefulness. Lilies can be planted in your garden to protect against “the evil eye” and to keep unwanted people away.  

*When reading your horoscopes for insight and inspiration, take what is valuable to you and leave the rest. Horoscopes are written for a general audience. Read your sun sign first, and if you know your rising sign, read that next. This could give you a more expansive view of how these aspects may be felt for your personally. For specifics, deeper insight and understanding about how this astrology affects you personally, sign up for a natal chart or transit report, or a Kosmic Koaching session.

Aries & Aries Rising
The main news for this week is Neptune’s station. The dreamy planet will turn retrograde in Pisces on Friday. This retrograde cycle lasts until November, so you’ll have plenty of time to get used to it, but the station day could feel heavy or intense in some way. Neptune’s in your house of sorrows and rest. Neptune rules Pisces and is at home there, and in this part of your chart the spiritual planet influences you to be more sensitive, creative, and helpful toward others. And during this sleep cycle, you’ll be more attuned to the hidden, the illusive, but could also feel more paranoid or irritated. Try to avoid drugs, particularly stimulants, self-defeating behaviors, and being around psychic vampires during this retrograde. Tune in to your intuition and trust your vision.

Taurus & Taurus Rising
This week’s big news is that Neptune, the planet of spirituality, turns retrograde on Friday. This happens in your friendship house, the area all about teamwork, organizations you participate in, alliances, technology and objectives. While Neptune is retrograde, you’ll be more intuitive and receptive, and could feel heavy or moody during this cycle. Consider your ideals, your vision for your life and specific goals you have, and work to remedy any issues you find so that when Neptune turns direct again things don’t get worse. Steer clear of addictive behaviors and habits during this retrograde and stay away from people who drain your energy. Be wary of any psychic attractions and getting caught up in what you think may be a destined relationship.

Gemini & Gemini Rising
This week the planet of spirituality turns retrograde in Pisces; this happens on Friday morning in Pisces, your house of career and achievement. Neptune will turn retrograde and its energies will be more withdrawn. You’ll be more receptive and have an insightful perspective on things, with increased intuition and sensitivity. It’s important to take action and remedy any issues that you uncover so that when Neptune turns direct again things don’t worsen. While the planet of dreams and delusions is retrograde, try to avoid using drugs and falling into addictive behaviors or unhealthy coping mechanisms. Try to tune into your intuitive sense, but if you feel paranoid, you may be picking up on too much psychic debris. Keep your boundaries secure.

Cancer & Cancer Rising
This week’s main news is about Neptune, the planet of illusion and imagination, turning retrograde on Friday. Neptune is in Pisces, a sign he rules, and in your house of mental exploration. Neptune will function differently while retrograde in his sea cave, and you will feel more open psychically, more receptive and sensitive. You may have deep insights and see things differently during this time; take steps to heal or bring balance to any issues you see in your life now, or the issues can worsen when Neptune turns direct. You’ll be able to pick up the illusive and have a clearer perspective during the retrograde cycle, but guard against psychic overload, which Neptune brings. And steer clear of substance abuse and addictive behaviors now, as well as what seem to be “destined” love affairs or negative attractions.

Leo & Leo Rising
Neptune, ruler of dreams, turns retrograde on Friday morning in the sign of Pisces. Neptune actually rules Pisces and is at home there, but the retrograde cycle means that this energy will manifest differently. Neptune’s in your eighth house of sex, death and rebirth, which deals with themes of intimacy, merging, sharing wealth, sexual union and spiritual transformation. During the retrograde cycle, your insight and receptivity will increase as well as your psychic sensitivity. Try to avoid being around addictive personalities and protect yourself against psychic attack. This is also a time where you’re susceptible to negative attractions or to be swept up in a delusional story to escape reality.  

Virgo & Virgo Rising
On Friday of this week, Neptune turns retrograde in your house of partnership. Neptune is the planet of dreams and delusions, and during the retrograde cycle, which lasts through November, the energies of this planet will manifest differently. During this cycle you may feel more receptive and psychically sensitive, especially around energy vampires, so keep your boundaries strong. Heightened openness and sensitivity can be a double-edged sword if you’re not prepared for it or working with it consciously. Avoid using addictive substances and engaging in addictive behaviors now, and guard against psychic attack and energy overload. Problems that you pick up on should be addressed and dealt with to ensure that the issues don’t worsen when Neptune turns direct. Trust your intuition and expanded perspective and stick close to those you trust deeply.

Libra & Libra Rising
This week’s big news is that Neptune, the planet of spirituality, turns retrograde until November; Neptune is in Pisces and your house of analysis and well being. While the dreamy planet is retrograde, your perceptions can expand and your sensitivities may increase. This heightened receptivity can be powerful but also overwhelming depending on how you use it. If you feel paranoid or energetically overwhelmed, you may have psychic overload and will need to ground and refocus. Steer clear of psychic attractions and jumping into a relationship suddenly now because you feel it’s “destiny” or karma… and avoid using drugs and engaging in addictive patterns (such as co-dependency), as that can get out of control quickly. Try to do earthy practices that ground you regularly and listen closely to your inner voice and where it leads you.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising
This week’s important news is about Neptune, the planet of spirituality, dreams and delusions. Neptune turns retrograde in Pisces on Friday in your house of creativity and sex and remain retrograde until November. During this cycle, your intuition and receptivity will increase, as will your ability to see far more in any given situation compared to when Neptune is direct. Rely on your inner vision and voice. Protect yourself against psychic attack and negative attractions, where you feel compelled or seduced by a feeling of “destiny” with someone you don’t truly know, especially with this planet in your house of seduction and romance. Guard against feeling paranoid, which may indicate a psychic overload or an energy vampire in your midst. Your perceptions and instinctual knowing will be strong now, so pay attention to any problems you perceive and address them or they could worsen when Neptune turns direct. Avoid turning to addictive substances and addictive patterns, as this planet rules addiction and delusion, and instead embrace creative and artistic outlets. Your own intuitive compass is your guide.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising
Neptune, the planet of spirituality, turns retrograde on Friday in Pisces, your house of home and family. The way this planet manifests and displays its energy will shift during this cycle. You may find that your receptivity and psychic sensitivity increases, and you could even get a little bit of psychic overload depending on who you’re around. Try to avoid addictive substances and patterns now, as Neptune rules drugs, chemicals, anesthetics, delusions and addiction. Instead focus on the heightened perception it brings and make sure to work on the issues that are illuminated now, so that they don’t worsen when Neptune turns direct. Use your elevated sensitivity to increase closeness with important people in life and to tune into your inner vision and voice now and follow those.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising
This week’s big news is that Neptune, the planet of spirituality, turns retrograde in Pisces, your house of communication. Neptune’s influence will be experienced differently while retrograde until November. This energy is usually experienced as more psychic than physical or material, which is your preferred interaction. During the retrograde cycle you may feel more receptive and able to pick up subtle things that were occluded while this planet was direct; make sure to address these issues you pick up on, as they could worsen when Neptune returns to direct motion. Your sensitivity and empathy will increase, and avoid interacting with energy drainers and negative attractions. Avoid stimulants and other addictive substances now, as Neptune rules chemicals and drugs, addiction and delusion. Instead tune into your heightened perspective and insight, listening to your inner intuitive voice and vision.

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising
The big news for this week is Neptune’s station, turning retrograde in Pisces on Friday in your money house. Neptune’s realm is spirituality and religion, dreams and delusions, institutions and prisons, mystery and secrets, and while retrograde its energies will manifest differently. During this cycle your empathic and psychic skills will increase, as will your receptivity and sensitivity. Avoid interacting with anyone who drains your energy or causes your energy-body to cringe, and resist seductive negative attractions and encounters that feel like “destiny.” Since Neptune rules addiction, escapism and criminal activity, it’s best to avoid drugs and addictive behaviors now as the effects will be amplified. Instead, get into the wake of this imaginative, otherworldly, psychic and spiritual vibe and use your powers for evolution and magical work.

Pisces & Pisces Rising
Your ruling planet Neptune is stationing and will turn retrograde on Friday in your sign. Neptune is at home in your sign and you’re at home with the Neptunian influence of mysticism, mystery and illusion. During the retrograde cycle, which lasts until November, you’ll find there’s a subtle shift in the tone of this planet’s influence. You could feel more romantic and vulnerable now, or perhaps if you’ve allowed yourself to be deluded in love or business, that facade will be removed and you’ll have to face reality. Pisces can have a natural tendency toward escapism and self-deception when under stress due to Neptune’s influence, whether that’s escaping through spiritualism, drugs or other mind-altering substances, or addictive behaviors. During the retrograde you may be more prone toward this escapism, or perhaps the false realities will be removed now if you’ve traveled far from the truth. Whatever arises, deal with it directly and let it be a step toward evolution. Keep your intuition clear and focus on your soul’s growth and heart healing.

This week Venus, the planet of love and money, moves to Taurus and into your money house. Look for opportunities for at work that aries that could advance your career or increase your income. You could find love, or just value, on the job or with an expert in your field, or receive recognition from a male mentor of yours.

On the same day Mercury changes signs, moving to Gemini, your communication house. Expect your communication in general to get a boost and have some power, and also a surge of big ideas, strong self-expression and improved memory and study skills.

On Friday we have a full moon in Sagittarius shining on your mental pursuits or education goals. Any courses or studies you began six months ago are coming to an end, or the ideas that came from the philosophical or higher mind subjects you were studying are paying off. Other themes include freedom, religion, travel, honesty.

Also on Friday Jupiter turns direct in Libra. With the expansive planet inhabiting the relationship sign in your relationship house turning direct, all of that work you did while Jupiter was retrograde will likely pay off. You may have ended an unhealthy pairing or halted negotiations or contract signing, and now the information you need is here, the opportunity you’ve waited or good luck you’ve hoped for has arrived.  

Taurus & Taurus Rising

The love planet, your ruler Venus, moves to your sign on Tuesday and will bring your romance, beauty and money games up a few notches. Venus rules money matters, worth, love, relationships, the arts… and your sign is THE sign of love, money, and artistic creativity. This transit should bring boons for you.

Mercury moves to Gemini on the same day, bringing the conversation to money from another angle. With the communication planet in your money sector, your thoughts and discussions will likely center on career, income and finances. This is obviously a great time to have talks about money issues or discuss additional lucrative income sources, and to think about your financial prospects.

Friday brings a full moon in Sagittarius, lighting up your house of health; full moons bring completion and information, so if you’ve been waiting for test results or have implemented a fitness routine, you’ll likely get results or news now and this will be the end of a particular cycle. Reflect on the work you’ve done this lunar cycle and feel good about the improvements you made.

Jupiter, the good luck planet, turns direct in your house of service and health. You should feel some positivity return to your fitness goals and healthy eating habits, and some energy return to your body so you can get motivated to work out and take care of yourself.

 

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Venus moves into Taurus, a sign she rules, on Tuesday. This puts the planet of love and abundance into your house of sorrow and healing, which could mean you’ll need to retreat some in order to clear some old love karma or disappointments. Release any self-sabotaging habits you’re aware you have with relation to romance or finances.

Mercury’s move to your house of sorrows and closure means you’ll be thinking about the ways you self-sabotage or how self-limiting behavior or thinking creates trouble and stress in your life. You can clear old karma and repetitive thought loops of negativity now, get some rest, and hopefully heal a little through your contemplations.

We have a full moon in Sagittarius this week in your house of health, so the fitness routines or healthy eating you’ve been doing for the past six months should be paying off now. Reflect on your inherent perfection and continue to organize and de-stress your life.

The communication planet also changes signs, moving into Gemini, which means your friendships and alliances will get some attention. You’ll find your tribe and socialize more during this transit.

We have a full moon in Sagittarius on Friday morning shining on your romantic fifth house. Full moons bring emotions, closure, the end of a cycle or news, and the themes for you could include creativity, the arts, love, fertility, and pleasure.

Jupiter finally turns direct this week in Libra. Any communications that have felt stalled or stuck since February when the good luck planet turned retrograde should improve now. This part of your chart is about self-expression, travel and family, ideas and technology, so Jupiter’s influence will now be to enhance and expand these areas.

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Venus and Mercury both change signs this week, on Tuesday. The love planet moves to Taurus and your house of travel and education, and the communication planet moves to Gemini, your career house.

Mercury will bring increased verbal skills and bright ideas for your career advancement while in this part of your chart, and your ambition and success should increase. Try to meet with a trusted mentor or father figure during this transit for advice.

There is a Sagittarius full moon on Friday morning in your house of home. Full moons increase lunacy and represent the end of a cycle. You may get news or have a revelation about your family or a real estate deal that you’ve been waiting on or you could feel a sense of wholeness with regard to your homelife.

Jupiter, the planet of abundance, turns direct in Libra, your money house; Jupiter has been retrograde here since February, causing you to feel a financial roadblock. You should sense an increase in stability in your career and finances now, as well as an improvement in your sense of self-worth.

Libra & Libra Rising

Your ruling planet moves into Taurus, the other sign that Venus rules. This means that the planet of love will be in your intense house of intimacy and sex, and while Venus is here your connection with your partner can deepen or you could come into money through your partner, inheritance, or shared resources with a business partner.

Mercury, the planet of communication, moves to Gemini and your travel and education sector, so this would be the best time to take an adventurous trip, study philosophy or other profound subjects, or go back to school.

There’s a full moon in Sagittarius on Friday shining on your communication house. As with all full moons there could be an increase in lunacy, news, or some kind of end to a cycle. Themes for you could be around technology, day to day travel, relationships with your family, or self-expression.

And also on Friday Jupiter turns direct in your sign. From September 2016 until October of this year the planet of good luck is in your sign and first house. And now that Jupiter is direct, the opportunities and expansion will return and you can enjoy focusing on growing your most special dreams.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

The planet of love and money, Venus, moves to Taurus and your relationship house on Tuesday, bringing a burst of romance to your relationship house. Rejoice! I know you’ve been feeling annoyed with everyone lately, but this will help.

May 29-June 4 Horoscopes

Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, May 29- Sunday, June 4

The moon will be waxing all week, as we’ve just had our new moon in Gemini last Thursday and we’ll have a full moon in Sagittarius next week. Put energy into the ideas or intentions you created for the new moon. Here are some aspects of note for this week:
Monday - Moon enters Leo
Tuesday - Moon trine Venus
Wednesday - Mercury trine Pluto … Moon enters Virgo
Thursday - Venus trine Saturn … Half Moon waxing
Friday - Mars square Chiron … Moon enters Libra
Saturday -  Venus conjunct Uranus
Sunday - Mars enters Cancer

KK

Recommendations:
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)- Grapefruit essential oil
Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)- Palo Santo essential oil
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)-  Peace and Calming blend essential oil
Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)- Bergamot essential oil

Aries & Aries Rising

Mars, the action planet, moves to Cancer on Sunday morning and to your house of home. And Mars is your ruling planet, so you’ll feel how uncomfortable this planet of will power feels in watery Cancer. Under this influence you could feel more emotional about your family, more protective of them, and there will certainly be an important interaction with a mother-figure or female mentor. This energy could encourage more self-care and home improvement projects. Other themes include your roots, ancestors, children, real estate, or preparations for later years of life.

Next week’s full moon could be big for your mental pursuits or travel ideas. If you’ve considered going back to school or signing up for a new philosophical course, this will be a good week to plan for it.

Keep channeling powerful communication skills and bright ideas during this Gemini season, and if you haven’t yet, reach out to family members you haven’t connected with lately.

 

Taurus & Taurus Rising

The planet of will power, Mars, moves into Cancer on Sunday to your third house. Mars brings energy and action, and often aggression to all situations. With this placement, you may have more force or drive, or an aggressive tone, in your communications. Anything related to technology, community or ideas will be supported and empowered. Your communications will be direct and there could be some anger expressed, otherwise this should be a helpful alignment for you.

The moon waxes this week until the full moon next Friday. Your house of intimacy and merging will be the highlight of the full moon energy.

We’ve reached the end of Mercury’s shadow period, and you can begin to speak freely and move at your normal pace once again. The moon will traverse Taurus, Gemini and Cancer this week, with a new moon in Gemini at 12:44pm PDT on Thursday. For Gemini suns, this is your personal new moon of the year; while the sun is in your sign and and you’re able to consider what is most important in your life, set intentions at this moon to grow your biggest wishes and heartfelt desires. When the full moon in Gemini arrives you will be able to see what you’ve created. We will all set new moon intentions that we’ll cultivate for the next six months, but with both the sun and moon in Gemini our Gemini friends will have an infusion of strength and magic to theirs.
Enjoy your week.  Xo, KK

The new moon in Gemini on Thursday lands in your technology and ideas sector; set intentions around self-expression and communication, your family ties, trips and travels. Manifest some new ideas and energy.

Although the exact hit was last week, we will feel the trine between Saturn and Uranus for the rest of the month. This affects your ninth and first houses, so there could be profound revelations that change everything and you’ll have the tools and organization to ground them in reality. Stay open to dreams, connections and opportunities this week.

 

 

Taurus & Taurus Rising

On Monday we have a new moon in Gemini shining in your money sector. Like with all new moons, the energy is that of initiation and new beginnings, so set intentions for your financial success and security, your career, and your earning potential. This is also the house that rules self-worth which is a necessary component as you move forward with your hopes and dreams.

Although the exact aspect was last week, we will feel the trine between Saturn and Uranus for the rest of the month. You may feel potent changes unfolding around legacies, spiritual transformations, closure and healing. Old karma may be cleared to reveal a newfound sense of self-understanding.

 

Gemini & Gemini Rising

This Monday we have a new moon in your sign for your solar return month. This is your moon; each sign only has one new moon in their sign and it is while the sun is also there. Take time to ritualize your intention setting this month to increase potency and focus on your personal goals and deepest desires.

Last week’s Saturn/Uranus trine was exact, but we will feel the energies for the rest of the month. Your relationships and friendships will likely undergo an upgrade. Don’t resist the changes but rather open to the unexpected; things are reorganizing in a better way.

 

Cancer & Cancer Rising

On Monday we have a new moon in Gemini, your intense house of endings and understanding. This is a strange feeling since new moons usher in a new beginning, but with it in this part of your chart, your energy will be mostly drawn to the dark moon just before the new cycle. Allow yourself to purge and release old residue and karma in order to move into a new era. Then your new intentions will arise from a new sense of self-empowerment.

Although the exact aspect was last week, we will feel the trine between Saturn and Uranus for the rest of the month. You may feel potent changes unfolding or new insights with your health or in your career. The harmonizing of these two opposite powerhouses can make a lasting impression on your life.

 

Leo & Leo Rising

On Monday we have a new moon in Gemini, your house of alliances and idealism. Take time to set intentions for this next lunar cycle that will grow for the next six months. This part of your chart rules memberships, intellectual pleasures, friendships, and your goal and objectives. This is also a good time to reach out to your connections; you never know who will have an important bit of information or advice that could bring a boon.

Although the exact aspect was last week, we’ll feel the trine between Saturn and Uranus for the rest of the month. The merging of two opposite signs with paradoxical energies can bring some disorientation at first, but an evolutionary alignment eventually. You’ll feel the themes of love, sexuality, creative expression, deep studies, risk taking and freedom come together in some way.

 

Virgo & Virgo Rising

On Monday we have a Gemini new moon in your career house, so take time to set your new moon intentions and manifest some money magic! The intentions set now will develop and grow for the next six months until the Gemini full moon; focus on long term plans, your aspirations and ambition, being successful in your career cultivating material success for the long run. This part of your chart is also about experts and expertise in your field, fathers and important male mentors in your life, so there could be some sage advice coming your way from a father figure.

The Saturn/Uranus trine that hit last week is still in play, and we’ll feel the energies for the rest of the month. For you the old school discipline planet is in your domestic house and the innovative planet is in your house of death and rebirth; you’re bound to have some changes and upgrades in your intimate connections and your finances. Be open to love, to a new business partner, to real estate deals or buying a home. And don’t forget to take some time to enjoy your life, Virgo.

 

Libra & Libra Rising

Monday’s new moon in Gemini shines on your house of honesty and freedom; set intentions that will grow for this new lunar cycle that assist your mental pursuits, higher education or deep studies, and long distance travels. Maybe you’ll be traveling for work or school, or to learn a new language. And truth-telling and blunt-talk are both favored with this moon, which is challenging for you usually; you’d much rather not ruffle feathers or have anyone mad at you. But use this new moon to make a new beginning with honesty, for yourself and others.

Although the exact hit was last week, you still may be feeling the energy of the trine between Saturn and Uranus. The planet of structure and stability is in your house of communication and technology and the rebellious planet of change is in your relationship sector. These two paradoxical forces could revolutionize your relationships, so keep paying attention to where the energy is moving.

 

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

We have a new moon in airy Gemini on Monday, illuminating your powerful eighth house of death and rebirth. This could be a big new beginning for you, Scorpio. Mark the occasion by setting intentions that are your true desires about sex and intimacy, assets and sharing resources with another. Something will likely be initiated on Monday is this area and will manifest over the next six months (until the Gemini full moon), so be as clear as possible. You may decide to take a leap of love and move in with your partner, or to get hitched, or to get pregnant! Possibly a new business opportunity will arise with a new financial partner that will boost your current business. Even though you need more privacy and solitude during Gemini season, stay open to what’s coming to you.

The Saturn/Uranus trine that was exact last week is still influencing us and will all month. For you Saturn is in your money house and Uranus is in your health house; allow for a radical reframing of your past habits and patterns (that clearly do not work anymore) and get reinspired to get your health and mental state on track.

 

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Monday brings a new moon in airy Gemini and initiates a new lunar cycle. The intentions you set on Monday will take root and grow for the next six months. The themes of your new moon will be relationships. Both your business relationships as well as personal connections could undergo a shift; if you’ve been fighting with your partner or having creative differences with a financial partner, this could be a good time to smooth things over. If not already involved in one of these relationships, you could find yourself in love (or be introduced to the perfect financial partner) on Monday.

Saturn, the planet of discipline, formed an exact trine with Uranus, the planet of sudden change, last week but the energies of these two polar opposites harmonizing will be felt for the rest of the month. With Saturn in your first house and Uranus in your fifth, there may be something to do with artistic talents, fame, creative expression, love and sex that could become an important and lucrative project. Focus on the personal, what you’re passionate about, and follow that thread.

 

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

We have a new moon in Gemini coming up on Monday, in your house of health and service. As with all new moons, set intentions that will grow for the next six months, and for you, use themes related to your health, mental well being, the work you do in the world, organization and purification. With your natural focus and dedication, committing to your health and fitness won’t be hard, so expect to get started on Monday with a new motivation.

Last week was an exact trine between your ruler Saturn and the rebel planet Uranus in Aries, and activates your houses of healing and of home. The impact will be felt all month long. It is likely that you’re undergoing some personal changes and shifts, with finances, career, family and roots or foundations; although it may appear chaotic on the surface, the rearranging is necessary. It will make sense once things get more settled.

 

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

On Monday we have a new moon in Gemini in your seductive fifth house of art and sex; set intentions as you always do on new moons, but with the focus on invoking your deepest desires about love and romance, fame and joy, creativity and even fertility. Artistic endeavors and creative pursuits as well as entertainment and all matters of the heart are favored. This will be a big day of magic and manifesting, Aquarius. Dust off your emotions and get ready to feel. ;)

The powerful trine between your ruler Uranus and Saturn was exact last week but we’ll feel the energies all month long. Uranus is the outlaw of the zodiac, much like you, and is in your communication sector and Saturn, the task master, is in your friendship and connections house. There’s sure to be some big, unexpected news coming your way, and one if not a few of your radical, seemingly eccentric ideas (or inventions) has the potential to manifest into the relative realm! Saturn helps you get the work done, and you’re already awesome at the revolutionary insights, so merged together should provide a promising outcome.

 

Pisces & Pisces Rising

We have a Gemini new moon on Monday landing in your domestic sector. Set intentions as you always do for the new moon, with the themes of family, real estate, land ownership, foundations, and self-care for this particular moon. For you, this is the beginning of a new lunar cycle that could put family ties in the direct spotlight, especially with important women mentors and mothers or mother-figures in your life. It is also likely that you could relocate to a new destination, buy or sell a home or make some home improvements.

Last week we had a powerful exact trine between structured Saturn in your career house, and radical Uranus in your financial house. We’re still under the influence and will be for the rest of the month. The implications of this aspect for your life could be transformational. We had one exact trine in December and will have another coming up in November, so between now and then expect some monumental shifts. Continue to listen to your instincts and intuition throughout.

May 15-21 Horoscopes

Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, 15 - Sunday, May 21
Taurus season is coming to a close and on Saturday afternoon the sun enters Gemini (1:31pm PDT) and we’ll begin a new solar cycle. Gemini is a mutable air sign ruled by Mercury, the Messenger, and duality is the main trait. Gemini’s symbol is the Twins and rules the lungs, shoulders, hands and arms. Gemini tends to be more mental than emotional, adapts easily, and can have a nervous temperament. Adaptability and communicativeness are trademark Gemini qualities that we can all practice and employ during this sun cycle.

Mercury, Gemini’s ruler, moves to Taurus on Monday evening, bringing a bit of groundedness to our minds and conversations for this week. And near the end of the week we have the second exact Saturn/Uranus trine that should be interesting and even potentially awesome for all involved. Saturn, as any Archer will tell you, is in Sagittarius (no picnic) and Uranus of course is in Aries. The expression of Saturn is one of sternness, restriction and structure while Uranus is the radical planet of change; this is the “old guard” meeting the rebellious and using the best energies and applications of both worlds to create (r)evolution.

The shift out of the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius is a bumpy ride… ground down and rise up.

Enjoy your week. xo, KK

The sun shifts to Gemini from Taurus on Saturday night (10:37pm PDT) and rearranges your focus to shift as well, now to communication and self-expression.

Libra & Libra Rising

 

The communication planet Mercury moves into Taurus on Monday, into your sexy house of intimacy.

Saturn, the planetary disciplinarian, forms a trine with Uranus, the planet of change this week, the second of three direct hits in this grouping. Saturn is your ruling planet and is in your intense house of karma and closure, and Uranus is in your domestic house of home, so with these two polar opposite forces harmonizing there could be a potential revelation or breakthrough that is personal and profound. Since you’re ruled by Saturn and have a natural sense of structure and order, this intimate aspect with Uranus, known as the rebel of the zodiac, could be disorienting at first but cathartic or evolutionary eventually.

The sun moves to Gemini over the weekend, shifting the focus to your health and well being. You’ll get reinspired about a health kick, clean eating, structured meal planning and workout routines, as well as reorganizing everything in an updated way to support any new lifestyle changes. This house also rules pets and your relationships with the people you work with.

 

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

 

Mercury the messenger moves to Taurus on Monday and into your fourth house of home. You’ll likely be thinking about your childhood, what constitutes home for you, and your ancestors in your own Aquarian way. There may be a message or information coming in from a mother figure or female role model.

Your rebellious ruling planet Uranus forms a trine with strict Saturn this week, the second of three exact hits of these two powerhouses in this particular bundle. There’ll be another one in November. And Saturn was considered your traditional ruler so these connections will impact you profoundly. With Uranus in your communication house and Saturn in your friendship house, and with these two being pretty polar opposites, you’ll get to employ your general expertise and enjoyment of all things paradoxical. This won’t phase you at all, Aq. Just do what you do best which is hold the paradox and merge the best of both old and new; honor tradition respectfully and be enlivened by innovation.

The new solar cycle begins on Saturday when the sun enters fellow air sign Gemini, your sexy fifth house; get ready for some sultry seductive fun. These four weeks will be perfect for passion and romance, expressing yourself creatively, enjoying pleasure and making art. This is also the house that rules fertility and pregnancy, so keep that in mind. ;)

 

Pisces & Pisces Rising

 

The messenger planet Mercury moves into earthy Taurus on Monday, to your house of technology. Mercury rules these things: travel, communication, technology… and in the house that rules these same things, you’re certain to have success and strength in these areas now. The Saturn/Uranus trine is the big news of the week; two powerful planets, at far ends of the spectrum, harmonize and bring into balance seemingly disparate ideas. The planet of discipline is in your career house and the planet of unexpected change is in your money house. This could be a potentially life changing transformation to hit your career and your finances, with the balance of the hard work you’ve put in (Saturn) and the innovative ideas you come up with (Uranus), so take a chance and trust your instincts under these influences. On Saturday the sun enters Gemini and your domestic sector, causing you to feel much more home-bound for the next four weeks. Make your nest even more homey and cozy, beautify your surroundings, work in your garden, spend time with those closest to you. This month can recharge your batteries and renew your spirit.

Mothers Day. When this day comes around it isn't all flowers and brunch and happy photos posted on social media for everyone…. 
for those who struggle to make it through this day, to be bombarded, like it or not, with the hallmark card-ification of this day…

for the motherless children….

for those that have a strained or nonexistent or volatile or painful relationship with a mother…
for those with mothers with mental illness, or addiction, those with scarred maternal line threads that stretch back through ages... 
for those whose mothers have left the earth plane and the mothers who have lost a child and those women who long to be mothers but have not been able to have children… and those mothers struggling to feel maternal, struggling with postpartum, feeling guilty for not feeling how they are "supposed to" ...
for those women who do not want children and are constantly questioned about why not and made to feel that they are less of a woman because of this choice…
for the moms that have to be mother and father, and the dads who are father and mother...

I see you, I feel you, I cry with you, I honor you.

Blessed be the children of the Great Mother of All.

May 8-14 Horoscopes

Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, May 8 - Sunday, May 14  

 

May is underway and we take refuge in the prominent Taurus vibes- we need this for sanity and grounding. This week Mercury gains momentum in his direct motion and our mental fog is finally beginning to clear. With Uranus in the mix with Mercury (conjunct), Mercury’s direct station will illuminate for us quickly and more than usual, so stay tuned to your revelations. We have several aspects this week that will play out in a myriad of ways and could keep things interesting. The full moon in Scorpio on Wednesday will bring illumination for us all and the culmination of the lunar cycle that began six months ago. Another important shift that unfolds on Wednesday is the North Node shifting into Leo (until November 2018), which shifts the nodal axis from Virgo/Pisces to Leo/Aquarius. Mars in Gemini is active all month long and this week squares Neptune and harmonizes with Jupiter… Wednesday’s full moon is also Lunar Beltane (older observance date) and an appropriate time for magic and to “bless the fields.”

Enjoy your week.

On Lunar Beltane this Wednesday we have a Scorpio full moon shining on your eighth house. This could be an emotional day for you, Aries, but it will bring a conclusion or healing that you need. A relationship with a romantic partner or lover, or with a business partner, could reach it  its finality, or you have clarity and decide to jump in. Some themes for this moon for you personally could include sex, intimacy, money that you inherit or is gifted to you, merging money and resources with another, death and rebirth.

Your ruling planet Mars is active this week, and in a trine with Jupiter, the planet that expands everything, you are certain to feel a new burst of optimism and energy for your goals, projects, ideas and plans.

Mercury is now direct in your sign and will form a harmonious alignment with Uranus, bringing an abundance of cosmic consciousness and big, visionary ideas.

Some themes for this moon for you personally could include partnership, marriage, contracts, legal affairs and shared goals. A home improvement project or relocation could be coming to a close now or you could have a revelation about a certain relationship. This could be a decision-making time or you may receive some important news.

Mercury is now direct in Aries and harmonizing with with Uranus, and now there are likely multiple revelations that you’re coming to after the retrograde cycle… which unfolded in your house of closure and healing. Secrets or hidden agendas coming to the surface, processing past wounds, or getting closure with an ex that returned during the retrograde cycle are all possibilities with this conjunction.

We are nearing the end of your birthday month, and the sun leaves your sign for airier territory next weekend, so for this week keep the celebration going, and all the self-care and grounding vibes.

 

Gemini & Gemini Rising

On Lunar Beltane this Wednesday we have a Scorpio full moon shining on your house of health. As usual, this full moon could bring illumination or insight as well as an ending to a particular cycle. Some themes for this moon for you personally could include health health-related news, diet or fitness, getting organized and streamlined, or relationships with the people you work with.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

We have a potent Scorpio full moon on Wednesday illuminating your house of heart and art. As with all full moons, expect heightened emotions and lunacy, and in this part of your chart the themes of this day could include sex, romance, seduction, creativity, artistic pursuits, fame, or pregnancy/fertility. The intentions you set at the new moon in Scorpio have been growing and manifesting. You could get some important news now that you’ve been expecting or have another sort of revelation or conclusion… this is your house of fertility and pregnancy as well, so this could be the decision or news…? You’ll have romance and love on your mind and want to open and share your heart and this could impact your relationship or magnetize a lover to you! Self-expression and art and creative endeavors will be strong now.

Continue to enjoy the Taurus season vibes in your friendship sector this week by socializing, networking, diving into social media to promote your work or projects or maybe you’ve started an online campaign or are active politically during this time, which is in total alignment with the sun in this technology and idealism house. This should be a positive week for you, Crab.

 

Leo & Leo Rising

On Lunar Beltane this Wednesday we have a Scorpio full moon shining on your domestic sector… and as with every full moon, there’ll be no shortage of lunacy and emotion. Some themes for this moon for you personally might be home and family, kids and women, relocation, and self-care. Full moons often bring new information to light or represent the end of a cycle, so if your house has been on the market or you’ve been trying to rent or buy or move into a new place, these things could manifest on or around this moon.

Another big deal on Wednesday is that the North Node shifts to your sign! The last time the North Node was in Leo was in 1998-2000 and will it be here until this November. Essentially, this node represents our purpose in life and has much to teach us. The Nodal Axis shifts to Leo/Aquarius, inviting deep consideration of enacting and balancing our personal power with our collective consciousness.

 

Virgo & Virgo Rising

On Lunar Beltane this Wednesday we’ll have a full moon in Scorpio illuminating your house of communication. You could receive news you’ve been waiting on or important information about a project or idea. Communication with family members, or travel for family or work could be part of this moon for you. Connect with your community, sign up for a course, write and communicate your truth clearly; your self-expression will be strong under this lunar influence.

Mercury, the planet of communication, is gaining momentum and although still in the shadow period, should bring illumination to some of the confusion the retrograde cycle brought up. With Mercury retrograde in your house of sex and intimacy, you likely ran into financial issues, maybe your own debt or with your business partner, but you can address any mishaps and make things better this week. There could have been disagreements or money trouble with your romantic partner as well, but you are working through that now. Continue to integrate any lessons learned or realizations remembered from the past few weeks.

 

Libra & Libra Rising

This Wednesday’s full moon in Scorpio shines on your second house of money, possessions and worth. You could receive exciting news about your career, income or financial prospects, and maybe approval for a project or a promotion. The intentions you set six months ago at the Scorpio new moon should be blooming now, and your stability and self-worth could get a boost. Pay attention to new information coming in.

Jupiter, retrograde in your sign, forms a trine with Mars in Gemini this week, expanding passion and goals and strong energy in your life; use this energy to propel your dreams forward, increase your passion and get things done.

Mercury is direct now, so there won’t be as many misunderstandings occurring in your partnerships. You should be able to tune into the positive vibes and optimism that you’re so capable of.

 

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

On Lunar Beltane this Wednesday we have a full moon in your sign; it is the only one of the year, so soak it up. This full moon could bring illumination, insight, or a sense of completion of a particular cycle. You could receive some big news or have an important realization. If you’ve been wondering about or considering something, this moon could help bring clarity and answers. This particular cycle began six months ago with the intentions you set at your new moon in Scorpio during your birthday month. Think about what you’ve been working on and thinking about and longing for since your birthday, and acknowledge how far you’ve come already.

Mercury is now direct in Aries and harmonizing with with Uranus, and there could be some revelations or progress around your health or well being this week, especially if you’ve been trying to figure things out or have had mystery symptoms. As Mercury gains momentum even in this shadow period, you can begin to address these issues.  

 

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

This Wednesday’s Scorpio full moon beams down on your intense house of closure. As with all full moons there will be heightened emotions and lots of lunacy, but with the moon in this part of your chart, this energy will be more pronounced. Another aspect of full moons is the sense of completion of a particular cycle and they can often bring endings or transitions. Some possible themes for your full moon include clearing karma, sifting through sorrows and self-defeating behaviors, healing your wounds, and esoteric contemplations. Full moons often reveal what has been concealed and expose where exits or endings should occur. An unhealthy relationship may come to a much needed end, or you may have realizations about the essential purpose of life. Charge your crystals and let the moonbeams heal your soul aches.

While the sun is in Taurus and occupying your sixth house region, continue to focus on your physical and mental health and creating harmonizing relationships with the people you work with. Getting organized in your home and and head will pay off.

 

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

On Lunar Beltane this Wednesday we’ll have a full moon in Scorpio illuminating your house of teamwork. This is the perfect time to connect with your community, gather your tribe, participate in social justice and political outreach, or clarify your goals and dreams. Friendships,idealism and collaboration are major themes of this moon for you, and this full moon is a great time to blow off some steam and enjoy the people in your life, so make sure to plan a night of fun and socializing with good friends.

Mercury, the planet of communication, is gaining momentum and although still in the shadow period, should bring illumination to some of the confusion the retrograde cycle brought up. With Mercury retrograde in your house of home, there were likely some misunderstandings and tense moments, but you can address any mishaps and make things better this week. Mother’s day is Sunday, and the fourth house rules mothers, important women in your life and children, so it could be a good time to smooth over any miscommunications. Continue to integrate any lessons learned or new insights from the past few weeks of retrograde.

 

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

On Lunar Beltane this Wednesday we have a full moon in Scorpio illuminating your career and ambition sector. The energy of a full moon brings lunacy and heightened emotions of course, but it can also represent and ending, closure, or a transition. You could receive important news or have a big revelation under these moonbeams, particularly regarding your career. Or maybe you’ve come to a decision or conclusion about your work, your career, what you want to spend your time doing and the achievements you’d like to contribute. Changes could be unfolding currently or are on their way. Additional themes for this house include father figures, material success, expertise and long term plans.

There’s something big brewing for next week, with the Saturn/Uranus trine affecting you strongly and  boosting your propensity for intellectual independence as well as bringing some major evolution your way (again). Stay tuned and pay attention.

 

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Wednesday is Lunar Beltane and also a full moon in Scorpio. Your house of mental exploration and truth-telling will be highlighted this time, including themes of long distance travel, higher education and publishing or literary efforts. With the full moon in a sister water sign, there will be plenty of powerful emotions, dreaminess and lunacy, but also revelations. This is the time to run away on an adventure, to take a risk and welcome big opportunities into your life.

There will be some potentially big career news or an expansion of your bank account or treasure chest coming next week with the Saturn/Uranus trine; stay tuned for more details. For this week just continue to steep in the Taurus sun vibes and look for joy all around you.

May 1-7 Horoscopes

Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, May 1- Sunday, May 7

The Wheel of the Year turns once again and we arrive at Beltane on Monday! This holy day actually begins on Sunday evening, May Eve. Equinox, which we celebrated mid-March, marked the beginning of Spring, a time when the Light and the Dark are harmonically balanced. Now at Beltane we tilt toward mid-spring. You can acknowledge this shift in nature most intimately by observing it first in yourself…

Get quiet, tune in and feel the pulse of life in your own breath and beating heart. Look around you and see the signs of life, the promise of spring fulfilled, the way the sunlight initiates the rising vines and opening blossoms as if into an ecstatic mystery.

I won’t go into the particular observances and traditions of Beltane here but will mention that  if it is not personally a holy day to you, you can still honor the seasonal shift with a simple celebration of your own.  Light a fire outside in your firepit, or inside in your cauldron, and consider your deepest desires, what ignites your soul, as well as how the expression of your shakti, sexuality and sensuality are honored or diminished. Make a vow of commitment to yourself and to radical self-acceptance.

 

 

Oh yeah, and Mercury stations on Wednesday. ;)

 

Enjoy your week. xo, KK

Aries & Aries Rising

Monday is May Day, Beltane, a turn in the great wheel that brings us closer to summer, closer to our deepest desires waiting to manifest. The news everyone’s been waiting for, Mercury turning direct, happens on Wednesday morning. Keep in mind that Wednesday is a station day and when the planet “changes direction” its energies are exaggerated, so don’t make any sudden moves yet. Mercury is in your sign and first house and has been creating disturbances in your ability to communicate to others without wanting to punch them. ;) Can you keep a cool head just a little bit longer, as the communication planet moves through the brief shadow period? Try. Then some of the aggro tension will lift and your interactions will feel more balanced. Soon you can finally use technology again without your head exploding and your travel arrangements will be unhindered.
Enjoy the good financial luck you seem to be having this Taurus season, and make the most of it.

On Saturday evening the Libra moon opposes Venus, creating a potential sensitive heart or free flow of emotion. Remember what is most important to you, Aries.

 

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Monday is May Day, Beltane, a turn in the wheel of the year that brings us closer to summer and reminds us of how important the simple pleasures of life are. Mercury is finally turning direct in Aries on Wednesday, in your house of closure and rest. Station days are tricky, but every day after Wednesday as the communication planet moves out of his shadow period things will feel better. This Mercury rx period has been in your twelfth house of deep psychology, so it is likely that you’ve run into some degree of secrecy and hidden agendas, self-sabotage, unseen forces, or spiritual debt. The mental chaos or heavy brain fog you’ve dealt with during this cycle will begin to lift. You will emerge from this retrograde with deeper insight into other people’s as well as your own secrets and hidden motivations, your past patterns, and with some closure.

Continue the birth month celebrations, delighting your senses and spoiling yourself, Taurus! Your birthday season is a treat for us all if we attune to the sensual, earthy, Venusian vibes you’re always feeling.

 

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Monday is Beltane, a turn in the wheel of the year that brings us closer to summer and reminds us of how important the simple pleasures of life are.

Continue to open to all the possibilities around you and make the most of this opportunity.

Mercury is finally turning direct in Aries on Wednesday, in your career house. Remember that station days are tricky, but every day after Wednesday as the communication planet moves out of his shadow period, things will feel better. With Mercury rx in this part of your chart, it is possible that you dealt with receiving some constructive criticism at work, or had your project stalled or misunderstandings with colleagues, your boss or employees. In the next week you’ll be able to get back on track and smooth over some of those disputes.

 

Leo & Leo Rising

Monday is Beltane, a turn in the wheel of the year that brings us closer to summertime and reminds us of how important the simple pleasures of life are.

The intentions that you set for the new moon last week will continue growing for the next six months until the Taurus full moon.

Mercury is finally turning direct in Aries on Wednesday, in your ninth house of mental exploration. (Mercury started out retrograde in your career house, and there could have been unresolved conflict with a father figure or male mentor to deal with or work through). Station days are tricky, but every day after Wednesday, as the communication planet moves out of his shadow period, things will feel better. For this retrograde cycle Mercury surely created some mental chaos, mind fog, misunderstandings, travel problems and general miscommunication for you. Most of it can be remedied and smoothed over in the coming week or two.

April 24-30 Horoscopes :: New Moon Blessings ::

Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, April 24 - Sunday, April 30

After last week’s bombardment of four aspects (that I wrote about in the very long horoscopes), in addition to the already very #retrogradeApril, I have some good news…. this week is the last week of April! And there’s nothing terrible to report. I’ll just go over the basics and it’s not overwhelming. We have a new moon in Taurus on Wednesday in the early morning hours, the big reset button for Taurus suns and a sweet new beginning for everyone else.  On Friday the love and money planet Venus moves to Aries, and can heat up your love life. It’s Taurus season and that means savoring and appreciating all of the sweet and simple pleasures in life. All of the other aspects that I’ve been writing about don’t just go away as we start a new week- all that stuff still applies. We continue to integrate. Everyone has their own deep work they’ve been engaged with, we’re all a little tired and our adrenals are likely depleted, but we can also reflect on the beauty that surrounds us. Invite joy in wherever you find it.

 

Enjoy your week. And New Moon blessings!

Aries & Aries Rising

Last week was pretty action-packed astrologically speaking. Obviously the aspects mentioned in last week’s horoscopes are still in play, and this week we have a new moon in Taurus and Venus shifting to your sign. The new moon, like the sun, is in your money house and can bring opportunity or good fortune your way. Set intentions at the new moon for inviting abundance and wealth into your life, as well as grounding and self-worth. These intentions will grow and evolve for the next six months. Taurus season can be a useful time for you ground down and get earthy- just tune into the Venus vibes. Money and beauty planet Venus rules Taurus… so Taurus season for you is about wealth and worth; certain aspects of your life have the potential to feel pretty heavenly if you can find the alignment. This would be a good time to focus on your career, lucrative sources of income, creating financial security, and clarifying what is most important to you in life.

On Friday the love and money planet heads into your sign and settles into your first house. This can spice up your love life as well as contribute to your material success. Venus rules over wealth, beauty, adornment, love, romance, connection, art, money… so for the next several weeks you can immerse yourself into creating or expanding in these areas.

 

Taurus & Taurus Rising

We had so many aspects and shifts last week that we’re still trying to see how we feel about it all this week. The sun has just moved into your sign, and on Wednesday morning we have a new moon in Taurus, making it your most powerful new moon of the year. You have the opportunity to set intentions for your life for the next six months and these goals or dreams will grow until the full moon in Taurus. Make a ritual on this moon during your solar return month and ground into what you want in life, what visions you want to renew, and the evolution that you are ready for.

Your ruling planet Venus moves into Aries on Friday morning, into your mystical house of healing.  Themes of this part of your chart include closure and endings, karma and compassion, hospitals and healing, sorrows and self-defeating behaviors. Fortify your boundaries if necessary, to prevent the emotional stress that comes from having people around you that siphon your energy or drain your joy. Invest your time and money in things that support your soul. Let go where appropriate and heal your heart.

 

Gemini & Gemini Rising

There was so much astrological action last week and we are still adjusting and integrating this week. Taurus season is underway, and on Wednesday we have a new moon in Taurus. New moons generally are for new beginnings, setting intentions for the next cycle, but with Taurus in your twelfth house, the focus for you will be more attuned to the dark moon, the cycle just before new moon. Let go, purge and clear out as much as you can, releasing old patterns of self-sabotage or defeat, negative self-talk. Bring hidden agendas and information to the surface so it can be released. Focus on healing and getting closure. Then at the new moon, set intentions for moving forward with more lightness and open-heartedness, free of the heavy burdens of self-undoing. This is all in support of your solar return month coming up next, Gemini.

On Friday Venus, planet of love and wealth, moves to fiery Aries and your house of alliances and collaboration. These next weeks you’ll find comfort in your friendships, and will likely join a new group or club or connect with new people. This part of your chart also rules your long term goals, your hopes, good luck and intellectual pleasures. Clarify your wishes for your life, your objectives, and begin to gather your tribe.

 

Cancer & Cancer Rising

You could still be processing all of last week’s astrological shifting, but don’t worry because there’s plenty of time for that. This week as you settle into the Taurus sun cycle, make some time to observe Wednesday morning’s new moon in Taurus. This continues to illuminate your house of friendships and connections. Set intentions at the new moon for this new lunar cycle that lasts until the full moon in Taurus in six months; themes could include collaboration, goals and objectives, harmony in relationships, idealism, teamwork, technology, or alliances. This is a good time to reach out to family or colleagues, join a new organization or club, and to think consciously about the people you surround yourself with, your chosen tribe. Make adjustments as needed, from a place of consideration and not hurt feelings.

Venus, planet of money and beauty, moves into Aries on Friday morning, to your career house. This could bring a financial boon, a promotion or raise, a new position of power, or possibly an office romance. Falling in love with your work again is also a possibility, if you haven’t felt inspired or productive lately. Your material success could increase now. Be on the lookout for some good investment or career advice from a father figure in your life that could be the information you’ve been waiting for.

 

Leo & Leo Rising

There was a lot going on last week, Leo. This week you should feel more settled into the earthy Taurus sun cycle while still processing some of the aspects that occurred last week. On Wednesday we have a new moon in Taurus, bringing more attention to your career. Set intentions for this new lunar cycle that will grow and manifest for the next six months; themes include your profession and public standing, long term goals, expertise, your image, success, recognition, and important men in your life. This could be an important new beginning with your career or holding a position of power. Material success during this time will be a natural unfolding of your ambition and expertise.

On Friday Venus moves to Aries and into your ninth house of travel and education. The realm of Venus includes beauty, self-care, money, love, romance, pleasure and amusement. Make plans to travel or take a risk or go back to school. Philosophical pursuits and higher education are favored, as well as the study of languages. Enjoy an adventure or engage in some learning now.

 

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Last week’s astrology was dynamic and we are still integrating and settling into Taurus season. We have a new moon coming up on Wednesday also in Taurus, which further illuminates your house of adventure and exploration. This entire solar cycle is centered in this area for you, and on the new moon mark the occasion by setting intentions for the new lunar cycle that lasts for the next six months. Focus on themes of travel and higher education, philosophical or religious studies, mental pursuits and self-discovery.

Venus moves to feisty Aries on Friday, and your love life could heat up. The realm of Venus includes money, worth, love, romance, beauty, and pleasure, so in your house of sex, death and rebirth you could get a surge of sexy energy. You may merge intimately with a lover or you may merge resources and money with a life or business partner… This house also rules surgery, taxes and debt, and money that belongs to your partner.

 

Libra & Libra Rising

There was a lot of astrological action last week and we are all still adjusting as we settle into Taurus season. We will have a new moon on Wednesday in Taurus, further illuminating your intense eighth house. Set intentions at the new moon for this new lunar cycle and they will grow and manifest over the next six months of this lunar cycle. Themes to focus on include death and rebirth, intimacy and privacy, sex and merging emotionally or financially with another, and also surgery, taxes and debt. These are the themes for your Taurus cycle in general, and at the new moon you can set intentions in these areas for what you truly want to manifest and create. You may notice your psychic powers and intuition are strong during this cycle.

On Friday your ruling planet Venus moves to Aries and your relationship house. With the planet of love and pleasure in the relationship and marriage sector, you can expect to have a breakthrough or clarity in your primary relationship. This part of your chart rules your romantic relationships but also your platonic and business partnerships, as well as any contracts you enter into, and your adversaries in the professional world. Direct your energy into creating harmony in your connections.

 

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

All of last week’s astrological action is still in play and this week we will continue to integrate those shifts and settle into Taurus season. This week we have a Taurus new moon, further emphasizing your relationships. You Taurus cycle is centered on your seventh house of relating and harmony. At the new moon set intentions for this new lunar cycle which lasts for the next six months. The themes of this house include romantic relationships and marriage, business partnerships, open enemies, unions or contracts and harmony. You’re likely already engaged in some sort of relationship work or consideration now.

The planet of love and relationships moves to Aries on Friday. Venus will now reside in your wellness-focused sixth house. This can feel like a renewed commitment to your own self-care, self-love, self-improvement… manifesting in such ways as ordering an organic CSA box to be delivered to you weekly, committing to your meditation practice, joining a fitness class, or working with a therapist. Organize your mind and your life, declutter both, and invite clarity to emerge. Eliminate people and situations that create emotional upsets, as these disturbances create illness. Put yourself first.

 

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Last week was a full week of astrological activity and we’re all still integrating and settling into the earthy vibes of the Taurus cycle. And on Wednesday we have a new moon in Taurus, further emphasizing your health and wellness. This Taurus season for you is all about the sixth house - your health, fitness, purification, organization, addressing illness, including how stress and worry creates physical illness, and also your relationship with the people you work with. And pets. So set intentions at the new moon for what you want to create in these areas, and the seeds you plant will unfold for the next six months until the Taurus full moon.

On Friday, a day ruled by Venus, she moves into Aries and your house of creativity and romance. Venus rules love of course, but also pleasure, beauty, worth, money… With the love planet in your sex and love house, there will surely be ignited passions, romantic connections, spicy sex, deep love, creative inspiration, artistic expression and just plain joy. This house also governs fertility and pregnancy so keep that in mind as you enjoy these next few months, Sagittarius.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Last week’s dynamic astrology is still in play and we will continue to tune into these changes this week as we settle into Taurus season. On Wednesday we have a new moon joining the sun in earthy Taurus, further emphasizing your creative and romantic natures. This Taurus sun cycle for you is all about heart and art, with the sun’s stay in your fifth house. At the new moon, set intentions that will grow for the next six months, considering the themes are: sex and creativity, pleasure and passion, new undertakings, your artistic talents, love, romance and seduction. This is also the house of fertility and pregnancy, so keep that in mind this week.

On Friday Venus enters Aries, your domestic fourth house. The planet of love and pleasure, money and worth brings energy to your home life, domestic affairs, your family… This house also rules women and children, self-care, roots and foundations, real estate, and what you keep most protected in life. This should be a sweet time of connecting for you, Capricorn. Reach out to your family, your parents, or your children. Honor your ancestors. This is your house of home, and what home really means to you.

 

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Last week we had multiple astrological aspects that we are still adjusting to as we get settled into the new Taurus sun cycle. We have a new moon in Taurus on Wednesday morning, initiating a new start, and you can set intentions that will grow for the next six months of this lunar cycle. Taurus season for you, as well as this new moon, will center on themes of home and family, security and foundations. This house also governs ancestors, women and children, fertility, parents, real estate and land ownership. This new moon your invocations will center on family and what home means to you.

Then on Friday Venus shifts to Aries and your communication sector. Venus rules the realm of love and romance, beauty and pleasure, money and value. The themes for the love planet’s stay in your third house could involve family ties, your relationship with your siblings, travel for work, education or to see family, technology, and self-expression. This could be a good time to visit family or invite them to visit you. Writing and expressive arts will be supported during this transit as well.

 

Pisces & Pisces Rising

We had some dynamic astrology last week that you may still be adjusting to as Taurus season gets underway. We will have a new moon in Taurus on Wednesday morning which will further highlight your house of communication. The energy of your Taurus season is about self-expression and travel, as well as your connections to your siblings and extended family. For the new moon, set intentions about these areas and what you want to create as we begin a new lunar cycle. Travel for work or education will be supported during this time.

On Friday the planet of love and money shifts into Aries and your money house, Pisces, which is good news for you. The realm of Venus includes love and romance, beauty, art, money and worth. This will be a great time to form a new business partnership or to try out one of your new ideas that you think will be a lucrative business. Focus on your career and putting your ideas to work, but with Venus in this part of your chart it will be important to invest in self-care and to consider and remember what is most valuable to your in life, infusing your feelings of self-worth with more power.

April 17-23 Horoscopes :Taurus Season:

First off readers, how are you? We find ourselves in the middle of “Retrograde April” once again and looking around we seem to be in the midst of a giant shit show. And that makes any personal shit shows seem that much shittier. So I know that things could be feeling overwhelming or challenging now, and it could be stirring up some anxiety or depression (whichever you’re prone to). As always when I write or teach, my intention is to tell the truth, be informational and inspiring, and help you see the humor in the hardest parts…

 

With four planets retrograde for the month, everything will feel slow, time will drag, and the past is a major theme. But this week we have some dynamic shifts in the skies to break up the monotony of terribleness in the news and the deep work we’re all doing inside.

 

On Wednesday afternoon the sun leaves Aries and moves into Taurus, the second sign of the zodiac. Taurus sun cycle is a Venus-ruled, fixed earth sign and during Taurus season we all are more drawn to art and beauty and the sensual delights of embodiment. My favorite Taurus archetypal character is Ferdinand the Bull… if you haven’t read this old children’s story lately (or ever), I recommend that you kick of this Taurus sun cycle by reading it (The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf). Ferdinand is the quintessential Taurus. So we can start to align with those earthy, arty Taurus vibes now, stopping to smell the roses and appreciate the simple pleasures of life.

This week we also have Pluto turning retrograde in Capricorn (Venus turned direct but Pluto takes her place as the fourth retrograde planet in the skies this month). Pluto of course is the Lord of the Underworld himself, and as such gets a bad rap. But Pluto is just doing the Plutonian work that only he can do and while it may be uncomfortable, it is necessary.

Retrograde Mercury moves back into Aries from Taurus. Mercury moves faster than the outer planets and so has usually three retrograde cycles a year (sometimes four). We just have to adjust our pace; slow down in all areas.

On Friday Mars shifts to Gemini. Mars energy is action, ambition, aggression, confidence and willpower; it should give a little burst of inspiration or energy.

Enjoy your week.

Aries & Aries Rising

Your Aries season has come to an end and on Wednesday, the sun moves into earthy Taurus for a month; your focus will shift away from self-interest to money matters. This part of your chart is all about finances, your career and income, financial security, even self-worth, so begin to think about how to improve or sustain abundance and even how to create new lucrative income sources for yourself.

On Thursday Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, turns retrograde (in Capricorn), making that once again four planets retrograde this month. This affects your career and public standing; Pluto’s transformational powers will be on pause while retrograde, so there could be issues at work or with male bosses or father-figures. You may do some soul searching about your career or have a confrontation with your father or male boss.

Also on Thursday, retrograde Mercury backs into your sign for the rest of the cycle. That should be reason enough for you to keep your head down and mouth shut, but of course you remember there are three other retrograde planets in addition.

And lastly, Mars enters Gemini on Friday, bringing strength or power to your communication. Your self-expression will be strong and so will your powers of suggestion or persuasion. This part of your chart also deals with technology, travel and family ties. Mars brings action.

 

Taurus & Taurus Rising

 

Aries season is over and your solar return month begins! Happy solar return, Taurus. The sun moves to your sign on Wednesday afternoon and initiates your season. We all welcome Taurus season, as it encourages us to tune into the Taurean good vibes… we pamper ourselves a little more, we crave the arts, tasting the most delicious food and savoring all the sensual delights of embodiment. You are encouraged to put yourself first, indulge in self-interest and making your goals, hopes and wishes a priority. Even with four planets retrograde, this is your time to celebrate and enjoy life. Your new moon is coming up next week, the perfect time for a grand new beginning.

Pluto turns retrograde on Thursday in your house of mental pursuits. If you find yourself feeling that you could be having a minor existential crisis, that’s retrograde Pluto. Keep up with your deep studies or your adventurous travels but use extra discernment with the subjects and people you’re interacting with.

Mercury (retrograde) moves on Thursday also, to Aries, your house of finality. During the retrograde cycle you may find yourself immersed in misunderstandings, a betrayal, or hidden agendas. Trust your intuition about your boundaries and who to trust. Watch your own back.

And Mars moves to Gemini on Friday, to your money house. Your finances or investments could get an energy boost, or maybe you truly get into the self-care/self-worth vibes and treat yourself to a makeover or spa day or new crystal….  It is your birthday month after all.

 

Gemini & Gemini Rising

 

Goodbye to Aries season. We welcome a Taurus sun cycle on Wednesday and since your solar return month comes us next, that puts you in the twelfth house, Gemini. Twelfth house themes include but are not limited to: endings and goodbyes, rest and relaxation, purging and clearing, processing the past, and looking at your self-defeating or non-beneficial habits. With four planets retrograde during this cycle, you should have no trouble tuning in, being more introspective, and doing some deep work on yourself. Then when Gemini cycle begins you will feel wiser, clearer, more integrated.

Pluto turns retrograde this week in Capricorn, your intense eighth house. This is right in line with the twelfth house reflection and purging; you may encounter a confrontation with a person from your past or your issues from the past. This part of your chart is all about sex, intimacy, merging with another, privacy, shared wealth, death, rebirth. This is not a great time to enter into or begin a deep relationship or a financial partnership for you.

Mercury, your ruler, moves into Aries during his retrograde cycle and that affects your friendships and goals and technology… there will likely be more disagreements within the groups or clubs you belong to, and your objectives could feel cloudy for a while. Old friends from your past could resurface, and you would likely benefit from exploring or revisiting connections from this time.

Mars moves to your sign on Friday, giving you a little boost of confidence, a burst of energy, and hopefully assistance in moving forward with something important to you now. Mars in your first house can be a powerful ally, like a cosmic bodyguard, but yeah it could increase aggression too. Use your power for good.

 

 

Cancer & Cancer Rising

 

 

We begin the Taurus sun cycle on Wednesday, putting attention on your friendships and alliances. This retrograde heaviness can take a toll, so use this time to reach out to good friends and hang out and have fun. This part of your chart is all about technology and teamwork, long term goals, groups, membership, and hopes and dreams. Use your resources to improve and harmonize all of your connections.

Pluto turns retrograde in Capricorn, your house of relationships. This could be an interesting time for you if you’re up for the challenge and willing to do the work. Someone from your past will likely make an appearance now, either an ex lover or business associate, and there is likely karma there. This retrograde cycle (which lasts until September) encourages you to look at old wounds, unconscious patterns, and general bad habits that cause trauma and drama in your connections.

Retrograde Mercury moves to Aries and your career sector this week; this likely won’t be the best time for a big launch or presentation but rather a time to revisit previous ideas, look back at what has worked, review and tweak. There could be miscommunication or issues with with a male boss or father figure.

Mars enters Gemini and your house of endings and closure on Friday. Mars energizes and activates, and sometimes instigates, and in your house of sorrows this could feel like unearthing buried rage, uncovering hidden agendas and confronting your own self-sabotage. So… good luck there.

 

Leo & Leo Rising

 

Aries is out, Taurus is in this week. The sun moves into earthy Taurus on Wednesday and your career house, where you should feel more inspired at work and in the community, even advancing your position or increasing your salary. Material success can certainly increase during this month. There will likely be an issue with or valuable connection with a male boss of father figure, so pay attention to any advice or mentoring coming your way this month. Use this time to focus on work, the work you do for others, your talents and achievements, and increasing your expertise in whatever your chosen field is.

Pluto turns retrograde in Capricorn this week, in your health house. From now until the end of September, you should address any and all health concerns, get all of your check-ups, and eliminate emotional stress and preventable tension from your life.

Mercury is still retrograde but will move to Aries this week, into your ninth house of mental exploration. There will be the usual mishaps and misunderstandings, with the concentration of that miscommunication being at work. Double check all work-related emails and texts before sending, all proposals before sending, all contracts before signing.

Mars moves to Gemini on Friday, putting energy into your friendships and alliances. Your goals and objectives, sense of idealism, and good luck could get a boost as well so keep your eyes open for little miracles.

 

Virgo & Virgo Rising

 

This week we leave Aries and enter the Taurus solar cycle, as the sun move to the earth sign on Wednesday. This shifts focus for you to mental pursuits, travel and studies. Even if you don’t take a trip now, this is the time to make plans and arrangements. You could enroll in a course or go back to school, study a language, publish a piece you’ve written, or just take more risks in the realm of mental exploration or travel.

Pluto turns retrograde in Capricorn on Thursday, in your artistic fifth house. Under these circumstances, from now until September, you may feel pulled into the underworld with Pluto and made to confront old patterns in your sexual and love relationships. You may be prone to feelings of jealousy or possessiveness during this time, an ex could reappear on the scene, and you could process unfinished business when it comes to your creativity or sexuality. This will be deep work on you time, Virgo. Oh, and this is also your fertility/pregnancy house, so…

Mercury is still retrograde and will head into Aries on Thursday, to your intense eighth house. With this arrangement, I will caution you to pay extra Virgoan attention to the texts and emails you send now, especially to your lover or partner, and guard against identity theft and credit card fraud, etc.

Mars moves to Gemini and your career house this week, which will bring some feistiness and and action your way. Expect an increase in your ambition, aspiration and even attainment. Grow your material success and refine your long-term goals.

 

Libra & Libra Rising

 

The sun moves into earthy and grounded Taurus on Wednesday, initiating a new solar cycle. This month your focus will turn to themes of sex and intimacy, privacy and boundaries, death and rebirth. There will be some work or awareness around shared wealth and joint resources, and maybe even an inheritance.

Just after your ruler Venus turns direct we have another planet entering a retrograde cycle; Pluto turns retrograde on Thursday in your house of home. For this retrograde cycle, which lasts through September, you will feel pulled to do deep inner work and uncovering… You may have questions about your ancestry or history, or about your mother or grandmother. You could do soul searching about relocation or the way you’re living. Self-care will be necessary, and if you tune into the mystical aspects of these themes, this could be a powerful retrograde for you.

Speaking of retrograde, Mercury still is. The communication planet will reverse into Aries this week, your house of relationships, so if Venus retrograde did not convince you to rethink and reform all of your relationships, this one will. Your work and business partnerships will also be affected, as well as your friendships and more intimate connections.

And finally this week, Mars shifts to Gemini and to your travel and study sector; if you’ve been trying to make a decision or get a confirmation about anything related to education, philosophy, long distance travel, relocation for work or studies, or a literary effort, expect an answer or clarity.

 

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

 

We start a new solar cycle this week, with the sun moving out of Aries and into Taurus. This shifts your focus for the next month to relationships, partnerships and marriage; themes will be related to companionship and harmony-seeking. If you’re looking for love, this could be your month. Single Scorpios could find someone special and irresistible now, and partnered Scorpios may dive deep into couple’s therapy or make a commitment. Marriage is a possibility, as is the creation of a new business partnership. We still have four planets retrograde, so contemplation, consideration and planning are favored over taking big risks under these circumstances. Consider with whom you work well.

Your ruling planet Pluto is at it again, turning retrograde this week like he does every year. With Pluto in Capricorn, your communication house is affected; from now until September when Pluto stations, you could encounter hidden agendas or power struggles, particularly with siblings, extended family, or in online communities or social media.

Mercury is still retrograde and enters Aries this week, moving to your sixth house of health. This is the time to continue adulting with all of your Saturn duties… make a doctor or dentist appointment, organize your desk and closets, and eliminate unnecessary stress because you know it contributes to illness. Stress makes you sick. Keep a low profile with the people you work with to curb any emotional upsets that could unfold during this time. This is also the house that rules your pets, so it could be time for kitty’s check-up.

Mars moves to Gemini on Friday which is your area of shared intimacy and joint resources. Your sex life could get a boost, your could receive an inheritance or portion of shared wealth.

 

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

We are moving out of fellow fire sign Aries sun cycle into Taurus season this week, and that puts the spotlight on your health and daily routines. Administrative duties, organization, analysis, purification, wellness, and pets fall under this canopy; let this new influx of earthy energy ground you, Sagittarius. Focus on rest, self-care, and purging negativity and mental stress from your life.

The lord of the underworld, Pluto, turns retrograde this week in Capricorn, your money house. Remember that all retrogrades bring the past back, or issues/wounds from the past, so your unconscious beliefs about money, feelings of scarcity and worth will arise. This is the time to smudge all the things! Clear your head and your space. Try to ground and stabilize now, even reconsidering any old ideas for new sources of income.

Mercury is still retrograde and moves back into Aries this week, your sexy fifth house. The usual misunderstandings will unfold and you may not see eye to eye with your lover or creative partner. People and issues from your past will continue to show up.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

 

The Taurus solar cycle begins on Wednesday and shifts the energy for you toward creativity and sex. This is your invitation to let loose and have some fun. Take some time off to lounge and relax with a lover or plan a spa day… go on an adventure, indulge in romance and art. Artistic talent, play, joy, passion, seduction, love and fertility belong to this part of your chart and for the next four weeks you’ll have time to expand these areas.

Pluto has been in your sign since 2008 transforming things for you and on Thursday will turn retrograde, so if you feel an existential crisis coming on, don’t despair. Be spacious with yourself. Pluto’s realm is the underworld, our deep psyche, so soul searching is on the schedule for you for now.

The communication planet Mercury is still retrograde and moves to Aries, your domestic house, on Thursday. The usual mishaps and miscommunications will occur, technology will be weird, and there could be some delays with remodeling or upgrading your home. There could be a misunderstanding or important connection with a mother-figure during the end of this retrograde cycle.

Mars moves to Gemini on Friday and enlivens your house of health. This is the time to purge, analyze, organize your life, and get focused on your well being and eliminating the stress that leads to illness. Mars will bring will power and action to this area. Pets and the people you work with are included in this part of your chart.

 

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

 

Aries season comes to an end and on Wednesday we welcome Taurus sun cycle. This shifts your main energy and focus to home and family for the next four weeks. Indulge in the earthy Taurus vibes and get grounded, nest, tend to your garden. You could consider relocating or redecorating your space or even growing your family, as this house rules women and children and pregnancy.

Pluto turns retrograde in Capricorn on Thursday in your house of sorrows and secrets… with intense Pluto here you will be able to confront old wounds and triggers, release karma, unearth hidden agendas, get closure and healing. This is heavy work and you’ve been immersed in it for years now, able to function with one foot in the relative world of existence and one in the underworld… you’ve been undergoing transformation and evolution. For this retrograde cycle, pay attention to the ways emotional stress accumulates and creates or contributes to chronic health conditions. Get enough rest and focus on healing and closure. Your dreams could be more prophetic and meditations deeper during the retrograde cycle.

Mercury is still retrograde and moves to your third house stirring up the typical miscommunications and crossed wires that we’ve come to expect, and in your communication and technology house, well… you’ll just have to wait to buy that phone or laptop.

Action planet Mars moves to Gemini this week and will infuse your fifth house with extra passion and sexiness. Mars rules sex drive and this part of your chart is about sex and seduction, love and romance, creativity and fertility.

 

Pisces & Pisces Rising

 

The sun leaves Aries and heads into steadfast Taurus on Wednesday, shifting the focus for the next four weeks to communication and self-expression. Potential themes for this cycle include family ties, your relationships with siblings, technology, ideas and community. You’ll likely be doing a lot of traveling for work or school this month. Make time to get grounded with the earthy Taurus vibes.

The planet of transformation, Pluto, turns retrograde on Thursday until the end of September. This brings some attention to your friendships, alliances, and your vision. This part of your chart also rules technology and teamwork, so watch out for hidden agendas or identity theft issues during the retrograde.

Retrograde Mercury moves to Aries and your money house this week, so keep an eye on your accounts, your spending (avoid making a large purchase right now, especially a car or technology), and try to avoid conflict or disputes with business partners.

Mars, the planet of action, moves to Gemini on Friday and into your domestic house. Your spring cleaning, remodeling or redecorating projects will get a burst of new energy. This part of your chart is about family, foundations, women and children, and more mystically-speaking, about what you keep private and protected from the rest of the world.

April 10-16 Horoscopes ::Retrograde April::

Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, April 10 - Sunday, April 16

Retrograde April

 

We begin the week with a full moon in Libra on Monday night (11:08pm PDT). The usual lunacy will abound, and there could be some interesting experiences with Pluto squaring this full moon. Libra is ruled by Venus and is the sign of relating, but Venus is retrograde of course and possibly pushing you to your relationship limits. There could be a breakthrough with this moon if you’re able to integrate the relationship work you’ve been doing. Venus turns direct finally on Saturday in Pisces and and most love and financial issues should begin to be smoothed out next week.

Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn are all still retrograde, and taking Venus’ place will be Pluto next Thursday, so we have four planets retrograde for the entirety of the month. The pace of life may feel slower, or maybe you feel as though you’re moving slow motion through life. The past as a general theme is prominent during this time. Our efforts are best spent on more reflective or contemplative endeavors and we may benefit from more solitude and self-care now than usual.

Enjoy your week.

Aries & Aries Rising

We are coming close to the end of your reign, Aries, and soon it’ll be Taurus season. This week and part of next will still belong to you so use this power wisely. We have a full moon in Libra on Monday night that squares Pluto. This moon illuminates your relationship house, bringing a revelation, completion, ending or activation. Pluto’s involvement implies a power struggle of some kind. This moon could bring a resolution to an issue or clarity about commitment.

Venus turns direct on Saturday, and any relationship or money wounds you’ve been clearing or self-defeating patterns you’ve released can be put behind you now. You can emerge from the retrograde cycle now with a deeper insight and a plan.

The sun shifts to Taurus next week and your attention will turn toward money matters. There are now only three planets retrograde… until next week when Pluto stations.

Try to have some fun this week - go see comedy or watch an old movie that you love.

 

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Only a week and a few days left of Aries season and then the sun moves to your sign and  your solar return month gets kicked off! Next Wednesday afternoon Taurus season begins.

This week we have a Libra full moon on Monday night squaring Pluto. The moon will shine on your health house, and with the interaction with Pluto there could be a power struggle with someone you work with or you may receive some health news or results you’ve been waiting on. Your health and well being, pets, co-workers, organization or analysis could be possible full moon themes for you this time. If you’ve been dragging your feet about your health, consider this moon a kickstart to make your wellness a priority.

Venus, your ruling planet, turns direct over the weekend in your eleventh house of alliances. There have likely been some misunderstandings amongst your fellow group members or in your circle of friends. Hopefully the retrograde shed some insight on old wounds or hurt feelings and enabled you to grow or understand in some way. Hang in there- your birthday month is coming soon.

 

Gemini & Gemini Rising

We’re near the end of Aries season and preparing to move into Taurus. This week we have a full moon in Libra on Monday night, which illuminates your house of sex and creativity. The moon connects with Pluto, so there could be a bit of a power struggle involving a lover or creative partner. Full moons often bring big emotions, news, or a completion of some sort, and the themes of this part of your chart include pleasure and joy, fame, love and romance, seduction, art and creativity, even fertility. You could have a revelation about your relationship under this influence.

The planet of love and money, Venus, turns direct this weekend in your career sector. There were likely a few misunderstandings or feuds with co-workers or with a male boss. You could have experienced some money issues or problems with your income or material success. As Venus gains momentum and begins to feel like herself again the work you did during the retrograde cycle will be helpful for you moving forward.

With four planets retrograde for the entirety of April, including your ruler Mercury, this isn’t the best month for extreme socializing or obsessive mental and verbal attempts; just try to feel more and discuss less.

 

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Aries season is winding down as we get ready to approach Taurus season next week. This Monday night we have a Libra full moon shining on your domestic house. Full moons are full of emotion and energy and bring news, insight or completion. You could get info or news about a mother figure or mentor or a mother-type has an answer or insight for you. You could honor the full moon by making a spa day and nesting at home. Since the moon forms a square with the Lord of the Underworld Pluto, you may run into a power play or control issues with a family member or mother figure.

Venus, the love and money planet, turns direct over the weekend in Pisces, you house of exploration. I hope this retrograde cycle brought you deep insights. Of course your travel plans and interpersonal interactions may have been strained that whole time, but energy will begin to move forward as Venus gains momentum and focus.

 

Leo & Leo Rising

On Monday night we have a Venus-ruled full moon in Libra illuminating your family connections and communications. Full moons bring heightened emotions, a sense of fullness or completion, endings or revelations. You could get news or information that you’ve needed or maybe a course that you’re taking ends now. This full moon makes a tense connection with  Pluto, so you could run into a power play or control issues. The themes to watch for could include communication, family ties, self-expression, travel, education, technology or community.

Venus turns direct in Pisces over the weekend. This was probably a rough one for you, Leo, since much of the retrograde was in your house of intimacy and legacies, with people or wounds from your past showing up. I hope you at least gained insight and understanding from the challenges you worked through. Things should begin to feel better as Venus gains momentum.

 

Virgo & Virgo Rising

We are in the final days of the Aries sun cycle and next week Taurus season begins; enjoy the focus on your eighth house themes of sex and love and art. This week we have a full moon in Libra on Monday lighting up your money house. The moon squares Pluto, bringing power struggles and control issues into the mix. You could get some important news or information, experience an ending of some kind, or receive a revelation. There will be the usual lunacy and heightened emotions that accompany all full moons, plus insight or news about an investment or your income, and control issues. Keep your discernment and patience through it all.

Venus, love planet, will turn direct finally this weekend in your relationship house. I assume you’ve had your share of run-ins, difficulties and arguments with people, including your spouse or partner, friend, or a business associate. As the love and money planet gains momentum and feels more like herself any misunderstandings should be able to be smoothed. If any people or exes from your past came back during this cycle, make sure you’ve been clear and gotten closure if that was necessary.

 

Libra & Libra Rising

The Aries sun cycle will soon come to an end and we’ll welcome Taurus sun next week. This week the focus is on the full moon in your sign on Monday night. This will be your personal full moon of the year, Libra, so make the most of the momentum. Watch out for control issues to arise, both in yourself and in others, or a power play of some kind, since the moon squares intense Pluto. You could receive important news or have a revelation or insight, or something will come to completion- a project, a situation, an era. Let this moon illuminate your heart’s desires and your clear vision.

On Saturday Venus turns direct finally in your house of service and health. If you’ve had some misunderstandings with coworkers or body image issues arise during this time, things can be remedied now. As Venus emerges from her underworld stay you can commit to beautifying your space, make your health and healing process a priority, and focus on your well being in all areas. If you have put off any beauty or adornment procedures during the retrograde, you’re in the clear now to color your hair, get a spa treatment or the special new tattoo you’ve been waiting to get...

 

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Taurus season begins next week and your focus will shift to relationships for the next solar cycle. This week’s focus will be on the full moon and Venus stationing.

We have a full moon in Libra on Monday night in your house of endings and self-undoing… so yeah that doesn’t sound like fun, but you can make the most of it because your old wounds, past betrayals and need for vengeance can be processed and released. This is the perfect time to put your past behind you and let go and move forward. You may experience a cycle coming to an end, or have karma to clear or hidden agendas to uncover, or sorrows that are lifted for this moon. There is a Pluto/moon square that could bring power struggles or control issues into the mix.

On Saturday Venus finally turns direct in Pisces, your sexy fifth house of heart and art. It’s likely that this retrograde cycle brought up old feelings, memories, nostalgia and past lovers or partners. As the love planet gains momentum you should feel a surge of romantic feelings, experience creative outbursts, begin or deepen a relationship, or get some recognition and praise for your artistic endeavors. This is also the house of fertility and pregnancy so keep that in mind.

 

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

We’re almost through Aries season, and the sun will move into Taurus next week. This week’s focus is on the Libra full moon and Venus stationing.

On Monday the full moon is in Libra, your eleventh house of friends and dreams. This moon forms an intense alignment with Pluto, planet of death and rebirth, so there could be some power struggles, undermining or control issues that you encounter with a friend or in a group or association you’re part of. This house rules memberships, alliances, groups, idealism, goals and objectives and good luck. The full moon could bring a revelation, some big news, an ending or closure.

Venus turns direct on Saturday, so you should feel some relief to your home and family life if there has been conflict there. This area is all about home, domestic issues, women and children, roots and femininity, family, real estate, and security. That’s a lot of ground to cover, so you should emerge from this retrograde cycle with plenty of insight. Now you can get started on your remodeling, redecorating, beautifying or adorning. Permission to buy new bedding or dishes or art or plants or crystals…. ;)

 

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Aries season ends soon, when the sun enters Taurus next week and your energy will turn to themes of sex and love and art. This week we have a full moon in Libra on Monday night illuminating your career sector. The moon squares Pluto, so there could be some drama in the form of a power play or control issues at work. Full moon vibes bring about extreme emotions, news and information, and an ending or completion. An important project or presentation for work could be due now, you could reach a decision about your professional life, or maybe you feel the fullness of your ambition and success in a new way.

Over the weekend Venus turns direct in Pisces, your communication house. The love and money planet retrograde here surely caused some misunderstandings with your relatives or mishaps with travels for work or school. As Venus gains momentum you should feel more connected to your relatives or community, more inspired in your ideas, more self-expressive.

 

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

We will soon shift from Aries season to Taurus season, but for now your communication and self-expressive sector is still lit up. We have the only full moon in Libra of the year on Monday evening, shining on your house of expansion and education. Pluto squares this moon, bringing in a power struggle or revealing obscured information (Pluto’s in your house of sorrows and secrets). Themes associated with the ninth house include long distance travel, freedom and risk taking, religion and philosophy, higher education and mental pursuits; there could be revelations or a sense of completion in one or several of these areas.

Venus turns direct on Saturday. During the retrograde cycle, Venus could have caused some tension in your romantic relationships or your finances.... The planet of love will gain momentum and begin to help you create more abundance, more money, more security and more harmony. Make sure self-love and self-worth are abundant in your life as well, Aquarius.

 

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Aries season soon comes to an end and we will welcome the earthy Taurus sun cycle next week. This week our attention is on the only Libra full moon of the year and the love planet moving forward.

Monday’s full moon is in your intense house of transformation. Themes for this part of your chart include sex, death, rebirth, intimacy, shared wealth and inheritance. And with an intense square to Pluto thrown in, there could be a power struggle or hidden information surfacing. You could have a revelation or get important news, see a project reach completion, make a decision about joining resources with someone…

Venus turns direct in your first house on Saturday. Venus rules over money matters, love and beauty, so while retrograde you probably wanted to get a makeover or throw out your entire closet and buy all new clothes. You had to deal with the effects of your overspending or lost a source of income. Spring cleaning and donating everything you no longer wanted would have been perfect therapy. As Venus gets comfortable being direct, you should feel your self-confidence and sense of self-sovereignty return. Get ready to make some bold moves in love and money, Pisces, just not until after #retrogradeApril is over.
