Cardinal Energy: a short story

There are three modes of energy in Astro-speak: Mutable, Fixed and Cardinal. Each sign in the Zodiac is assigned one of these qualities. Mutable is changing, morphing, constantly moving and adapting energy. Fixed is just that: stable, impermeable, sustainable (sometimes stagnant) energy. But what does "cardinal" mean? I have 12 chart placements in Cardinal signs.… Continue reading Cardinal Energy: a short story

Mother’s Day- A Taurus Holiday

I don't know about the rest of the world, but I always breathe a sigh of relief once Aries season is over. No offense to the ram, but every April is so chaotic and tense. The energy is buzzing with anxiety, the weather is absolutely bi-polar, and something abrupt or violent always seems to happen.… Continue reading Mother’s Day- A Taurus Holiday

A Venusian Saturn = Basic Bitch

Saturn doesn't let us get away with anything. He's the strictest teacher you ever had; the guitar instructor who made you practice until your fingers bled, Mr. Miyagi who told you to repeat "Wax on, Wax off" the correct way. He's always there, watching your progress, looking at the clock, waiting for you to learn… Continue reading A Venusian Saturn = Basic Bitch

Neptune on the Galactic Center

I recently paid a visit to my mentor, who is part of a co-housing establishment (I.E. a very organized hippie commune) and a professional astrologer. My family was originally involved with the planned community, but the price tag eventually became too high for us and we were forced to look at alternative home-buying options. It… Continue reading Neptune on the Galactic Center

Aries moon and self-compassion

One awesome thing about Astrology is the ability to understand inexpiable and/or contradictory aspects about yourself. Perhaps you grew up in a very nurturing family, where you had tons of support and were very loved. You have a strong sense of confidence in your abilities, and portray a shiny perfect exterior, yet you are plagued… Continue reading Aries moon and self-compassion

The gullible Empath

I've written about this before (pre-Saturn Return, in 2009): I'm a Pisces, blah blah, we are sensitive and easily led astray. Now I've matured a bit- I'll be 35 on Sunday..OMG! Is 35 too old to say "OMG"? Now that I've reached my ripe soon to-be-middle age, I know that this fish DOES have a… Continue reading The gullible Empath

Mega Transit- Heightened Awareness

I've been trying to put my thoughts together on the epic week I had, starting with the full moon last Wednesday.  I don't know if epiphany is the right word, or if you even believe in those (it made me think of the below movie..haha). I experienced sudden awareness, feeling "woke", a heightened sensitivity, extreme… Continue reading Mega Transit- Heightened Awareness

Old Soul

Happy 2017! As I scroll through Facebook, I see my friends overcome by a passionate determination NOT to repeat 2016; to put that hellish year behind them, to give the previous 12 months the proverbial FINGER. I want to get on the FU train as well, but unfortunately I'm "blessed" by the astrological knowledge that… Continue reading Old Soul

Post Election 2016

I had to go home from work yesterday because I started crying during Hillary's (and then Obama's) speech. In a government office where CNN is constantly on, I couldn't escape it. I cried for my sister, who (due to pre-exisiting conditions) will probably lose her health care in the coming months, if Obamacare is repealed.… Continue reading Post Election 2016
