Mars And Saturn (And Mercury in Retrograde!) Bring The WHAMMY In

Mars And Saturn (And Mercury in Retrograde!) Bring The WHAMMY In

CANCER: This is happening in your fourth house (from your Moon). The fourth house is the emotions and the family - watch out for arguing and fighting with your "nearest and dearest" and PLEASE avoid any difficult people in your life ESPECIALLY at the height of this energy (the 13th - 17th as mentioned above). You may be too stressed and anxious, even to the point of have sleep disruption. Make sure to blow off some steam through intense physical activity, or calming ones like massage, yoga, meditation... ahhhh.
 
LEO: This is happening in your third house (from your Moon). This is helpful in overcoming things that prior to this were holding you back (financial obstacles or competition) but you may have drama with neighbors or colleagues. You should mostly do well now and find you have extra support at your back and more opportunity than you've had in a while to go to the next level with your plans. Don't forget the little people.
 
VIRGO: This is happening in your second house (from your Moon). Watch your speech - you're too blunt and direct right now and may regret it. Friends may be extra grumpy (no surprise). Be careful of impulsive spending, and try to make improvements in how you manage your money. Saturn here for the next two years is especially trying to make you more responsible and disciplined in this area, and can really help you if you take heed. 
 
LIBRA: This is happening in YOUR sign - you're getting the most clobbered, and are the most anxious and possibly angry from Mars and Saturn doing the rumba on your head. Call on your support system, and start "cleaning house" of anything in your life you need to let go of. If in a relationship, be sure to tell your partner that you need more T.L.C. and not to take any less than stellar behavior too seriously. (Get it? Less than stellar? Ha ha.) Be careful of making any impulsive decisions. 
 
SCORPIO: This is happening in your twelfth house (from your Moon). This causes big unexpected expenses and possible travel. (If going on pleasure travel, put yourself on a budget and be careful to stick to it.) You're feeling extra strained and amped, even to the point of having a hard time sleeping. Which is too bad because your energy is tapped. (Think "wired but tired.") Spiritual study, meditation, and "going inward" are recommended now more than ever. Luckily you woo-woo Moon in Scorpio types typically love that stuff.
 
SAGITTARIUS: This is happening in your eleventh house (from your Moon). This combo is actually very good for you - be aggressive with goals, watch your money increase and your projects come to a very successful completion. The only bummer is your friends are getting the brunt of it all, so be careful not to be so focused on your success that you forget you want them to be there to celebrate. Venus is smiling on you most of August from being opposite you in Gemini, so you'll be extra popular now as well. Try to be kind to the mere mortals in your midst...

Are Your Planets At War?

By

Throughout this past week, there has been extra tragedy in the news; I'm sure I don't have to tell you. The conflict between Israel and Hamas and the loss of life from the plane that was shot down over Ukraine have been so unspeakably sad and terrifying. Amazingly, when world tensions "flare up" like this, it can always be seen in the stars, ... Read more

A Change In The Stars May Say It's Time For Love

By

 If you've ever read my newsletters, then you've probably noticed that I talk about these weird "planets" called Rahu and Ketu a lot. (Rahu rhymes with "Yahoo" and Ketu is pronounced "K-2" like the mountain, or the ski run at Squaw Valley...) If you've been wondering what the heck Rahu and Ketu are, ...

A Very Special Friday The 13th... What's Love Got To Do With It?

By

Today isn't just Friday the 13th — it's also a full Moon! The combination of the day of the week, lunar phase, and number on the calendar don't all line up like this very often (it hasn't happened since 2000, and won't again until 2049!).    As a "looney" Moon girl, I happen to LOVE when the Moon is full. ...
