black and white cookies and spumoniThis week is a last quarter Moon between the eclipses. The Moon slims down from quarter to sliver to nearly nothing. Or as Vachel Lindsay said: “The Moon’s the North Wind’s cookie; he bites it, day by day. Until there’s but a rim of scraps that crumble all away.”(…)

We are in the final week of the Aquarius lunar cycle.   This weekend we moved into Last Quarter Moon.  We have spent three weeks assessing our connections with others in particular groups.   We feel connected or we feel left out.  We feel like we have found a good group for us and our goals and aspirations.  Or we think we may not have found the right group.

Lots of things to ponder and on this last quarter moon we take thethe final push on our willingness to  connect with groups.  Maybe we are leaders hiding?  Maybe we are master networkers and can connect the right person with another right person and something magical happens?   is it time to show up?  Yes, it is.     This is the time we stretch and really see how we can push our selves with

diceI wrote this in 2009. It’s eight years later – nothing has changed.  Get a load at how clear cut this is. This is how you learn astrology!

I wrote about the opposition in my son’s chart here: Strife Between The Parents.  This aspect causes my son a good deal of grief. Still, the energy is in his chart and undeniable.

This stress constellates around him wherever he goes. I have an example that is stunning and simultaneously usual. It demonstrates to me that if you have something like this in your chart, you can’t run and you can’t hide.

The Sagittarius Moon is in a lighthearted mood today thanks to a trine to lively Venus in Aries in the morning, followed soon after by a square to Neptune in Pisces. We may have big ideas about what we want to accomplish today but overcoming inertia could be a problem. The Moon-Neptune square is bound to dissipate energy and create a state of aimlessness. What we end up doing will probably depend on how energetic we are naturally. It is OK to give ourselves permission to laze around for one day too. 🌠☾♐🌠

One good reason to rest and relax today is Mars in Aries is going to be in a rare mood this coming week. Not only that but the second of the two eclipses takes place a week from today, the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces. …

Every Gift Is A Curse In Exact Proportion

This is a strong statement. I believe it’s true. I wrote about having a Venus Mars sextile in chart. It brings me good deal of satisfaction (Little Things Mean A Lot). Whatever love or money I get, I tend to feel satisfied with it. While this brings me much pleasure, what do you think this does to my drive?

If I am satisfied… a fed dog as I say, I’m not inclined to go out and hunt as a hungry dog surely will. Consequently I may not achieve as much as a person with those planets in hard aspect.

Aurum Astrology » ‘Keep the faith baby.’

February 19th, 2017 @ 5:43 am by Aurum Astrology


We are at the halfway point between eclipses. Eclipses always mark key shifts and indicate areas in need of change. The in-between time is particularly potent, as we hold the tension between what is dissolving and what is coming into being.  This process will come to a turning point at the New Moon Solar eclipse on Feb 26th.
Meanwhile, the Sun has moved into Pisces and the Moon is currently in freedom loving Sagittarius, and in a 90 ° angle to where the next eclipse will be. That angle creates a tension and an urge to act or react to the planets involved.  Both now and at the eclipse, the Moon will be linking with Neptune in Pisces, which signifies the dreamer (or escapist) in us all.

 Pisces points to our soul journey on planet earth. Both Pisces and …

Sagittarian Mind » The 2017 Pisces Mixtape

February 18th, 2017 @ 9:52 am by Sagittarian Mind


Shout out to all of the Pisces ! Yes, your time has come. Enchanting, intuitive and elusive, spoken words cannot fully grasp your other worldliness. All that the average person can muster to ask is: “you’re not from around here, are you?”

Whenever  others feel like they have you in their grasp, what they fail to remember is they’ve only captured one of the fish and there’s another one still swimming somewhere “out there.”

At your best, you’re creative, sensitive and empathetic- with a seductive dose of mystery that slowly inflitrates the psyche, heart and bloodstream of others.

Your shadow is the charlatan, who is so  mired in mental chaos, deception and confusion that your version of the “truth” is now illegal in all 50 states.

Your evolutionary homework consists of blending your uncanny powers of perception with the discrimination …

March 4, 2017 at 4:08:51 am est (Washington DC) is when transit Venus stands still @13Ari08 and, from our vantage point on planet Earth, seems to begin backward motion. Stationary planets “contain *suspended power” so let’s consider what this means for the planet of diplomacy (and war, as ruler of Libra),…

Keep your plans open ended and flexible today. The day begins with a void-of-course Moon in Scorpio before moving into easy going Sagittarius midday. Any sense of purpose may be lost when she squares the Pisces Sun an hour later. After the Moon bebops along looking for amusement. We might as well go along for the ride and enjoy a time out from our busy lives. Sagittarius is most comfortable being casual and hanging out with friends rather than getting dressed up for a fancy shindig. Have fun today. 🌠☾♏🌠🌠☾♐🌠

The Sun is pleased to have the watery Scorpio Moon on hand when it moves into Pisces during the wee hours of the morning. It will be another week before Mercury shifts into Pisces, giving us three planets in water in addition to the Moon’s weekly visit to …
