Switch things up to make improvements and progress!
This week we kick off Virgo Season, Uranus shifts retrograde, Mercury enters Libra and the Virgo New Moon arrives on Saturday. With the energies making big shifts we can benefit by switching things up too.
Virgo season puts the focus on daily routines, habits and health. It’s also the sign of service. Mercury is the ruler of Virgo, and the trick here is to learn how to align mind, body and spirit, and organize life to better balance taking care of ourselves with being of service to others.
Mercury has been moving through Virgo since August 4th and will trine Pluto Rx in Capricorn Monday before entering Libra on Thursday. It’s a good time to let go of stink-in’ think-in’, improve your attitude and establish healthy habits that can support you through the rest of the year and your life.
Radical, rebellious, innovative thinking Uranus in Taurus shifts retrograde Wednesday, and revisiting where and how to shake life up to make real progress on our dreams will pay off big. Opening your mind and breaking out of old patterns won’t be easy, but will make a real difference for the future.
The weekend proves a bit difficult with challenges being presented with Venus in Leo squaring Uranus Rx in Taurus on Friday and then opposing Saturn Rx in Aquarius on Sunday. Navigate relationships with respect and consider waiting to push for or ask for what you want or need until tensions settle. Make smart choices when spending as well.
The Virgo Sun squares Mars in Gemini Friday and is the strongest aspect under our Mutable Virgo New Moon on Saturday. For this new beginning it’s worth the effort to start making some plans and setting up outlines for making progress and improvements. Just keep expectations in check, stay open to results and flexible in how it will all play out in the end.
Have a good week friends! Nurture the Nature - for your well Being!
Focus your mind on one task at a time...if possible. And here are a few tips for each of the key transits happening this week.
With Mercury in Virgo trine Uranus today and Uranus slowing down to station retrograde next week it's a good time to start considering switching up our messaging. Are you feeling that? I know I am. Next week begins even more buzzing in the brain about where and how to make changes, so stay open to new possibilities.
This is also the last week of Leo season. Venus here will still keep hearts on fire until early September. And this week a lovely trine to Jupiter Rx in Aries is inspiring us to reconsider what really lights us up and what we really want to do with our lives going forward. Tune in and follow your heart for building better relationships, stability, financial security and work/life balance.
Mars is moving through the final degrees of Taurus this week and moves into Gemini this weekend. Things may still feel slow and going this week, but that will change soon. A boost of physical and mental drive are coming and Mars will be here for next 8 months. That can be good news for some or nerve wracking for others. In a nutshell it will be time to start focusing to better align actions with words and intentions. More on that soon.
Virgo season arrives next Monday and Mercury is leading the way. You may already be focused on getting better organized to be more productive and efficient. Virgo season will help this even more. However, Mercury begins its pre-retrograde shadow phase and opposes Neptune Rx in Pisces this Sunday. This can make us question ourselves and if we've done enough. Surrender on this day, celebrate how far you've come, focus on more creation rather than perfection and wait for that boost of Sun in Virgo energy to arrive.
Have a great week friends! Nurture the Nature - for your well Being
This week we have an awakening Full Moon in Aquarius, the visionary sign of group efforts for making progress that supports the freedoms of all individuals. And all the energies that have been building to this point and around this lunar event inspire taking action toward these goals.
Monday Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto Rx in Capricorn and there may be struggles to find a middle ground and make agreements for peace in relationships. But coming together in creative collaboration can help make powerful advancements in career as well as home and family.
This is a time where our choices and the values that influence those choices must be taken into serious consideration to ensure best results for long term success and sustainability of life.
🌕 Thursday the Aquarius Full Moon arrives with ancient ruler Saturn being joined by the Moon and a strong square with modern ruler Uranus in Taurus. This Fixed T-square configuration can create challenges, inflexibility, and a push pull in the efforts to make changes, build worth and live free. And feelings can be conflicted around best ways of working toward a better future or how to shake things up to make progress in new directions.
On the same day Venus enters Leo and passions get fired up even more around being able to freely love, live and make choices according to our personal values. Standing strong together for the good of all can benefit each one of us.
Then Sunday Saturn makes its official opposition to the Sun while Mars in Taurus trines Pluto Rx in Capricorn. Slow and steady efforts can keep restructuring and progress moving in the right direction. Patience and persistence will pay off in due time.
August is a bumpy ride of a month, but it’s also full of possibility for growth. Keep grounding and following your heart friends. 💛
Have a good week! Nurture the Nature - for your well Being
"Choose change before change chooses you." I think this quote represents the astrology of this week and new month quite well.
This week kicks off August with the once every 15 year meeting up of Uranus with the North Node and joined by action planet Mars. All in Taurus there is pressure to make, and even fight for, major changes to create a future that is more stable, secure, sustainable and maybe even more enjoyable. And sudden unexpected events may also cause change that we will have to choose how we want to respond to.
Venus, the planet of partnership, collaboration and democratic cooperation, in Cancer the sign of home, safety, and security, makes a positive sextile to this Mars/Uranus/North Node stellium bringing opportunities for peacemaking and positive progress.
We may experience or see people coming together in new ways to make positive strides forward, finding middle ground for getting along better and making mutually beneficial agreements that can help improve life for all more people and the planet.
Thursday Mercury steps into Virgo where it will be until Aug. 25th and then return September 23rd retrograde through Oct. 10th. This helps give form to ideas, make plans for improving health habits and focusing on the details of tasks and projects at hand.
Over the weekend Venus makes a flowing trine with Neptune Rx in Pisces, while Mars squares Saturn Rx in Aquarius. Resist the urge to push too hard where you don't have control or where not much can be done. Accomplish what you can and then make time for some fun, creative play, dreaming, relaxation or refueling.
We are going through big shifts and major changes on personal and collective levels. It feels like time to start choosing our own change, being the change we want to see in the world, and living up to our highest potentials as individuals and a global community.
Have a great week friends! Nurture the Nature - for your well Being!
It's not what you say, it's how you say it. Mercury in Fixed Fire sign Leo certainly seems to have added force and extra passion to conversations and communications. Have you noticed?
It's important and valuable to express our thoughts, feelings, desires and needs in order to be able to live an authentic life and maintain healthy relationships. But when there is a lot of Fire energy in play filters, manners and considerations can go right out the window. It becomes much tougher to be polite and place yourself in someone else's shoes.
This is highlighted this week as Mercury moves through a square to Mars in Taurus and then opposes Saturn Rx in Aquarius. It can be even more challenging to temper and mind our tongue or reactions.
The Leo New Moon arrives Thursday between these two events. And with Jupiter stationing retrograde in Aries and approaching a trine to the Sun at the same time, whatever we are fired up about will be exacerbated, pushing us to act and making it even harder to stay calm if bothered or blocked.
Leo season is about discovering more of what lights us up and showing more of who we are with confidence. The drive and push to be more independent and self empowered is great. But the level of success reached will ultimately depend on your approach and the delivery of your demands and expressions.
The desire to make major changes or take a different path is strong now. And with the pressure and unpredictability of Uranus/North Node conjunct in Taurus and being joined by Mars Aug. 1st, sudden, big shifts are happening personally and collectively. It's impossible to know exactly what will occur but we can recognize that our actions and responses to it will significantly inform our future.
Best advice I'd offer; Be you. Be kind. And do all you can to enjoy and make the most of this wild ride called life while you're on it.
Take care and have a good week. Nurture the Nature - for your well Being!
Venus now in Cancer is further placing hearts, minds and reflections on childhood, family, growing up and evaluating who we are in relationship to those who raised us or influenced our life path choices.
Monday Mercury in Cancer opposes Pluto Rx in Capricorn bringing up conversations and contemplations around family challenges and our origin story. There is always a choice between accepting our story for what it is and even as a gift for the purpose of our personal evolution, or living in it as a prison of our own making. The question becomes, can we let go of anger or disappointments from the past, own our present and create our future in our own vision?
Then Tuesday the Cancer Sun opposes Pluto Rx to shine more light on the truth of matters, what needs to end or change, and where boundaries must be reinforced. Mercury also enters Leo which can cause conflict, drama or power struggles if responsibility isn't being taken where necessary or if fears are still running the show.
The same day Chiron shifts retrograde in Aries. This retreat lasts through Dec. 23rd, so there is plenty of time to deeply heal and finally gain the willpower to forge your own path. You don't have to rush, but you can quietly begin the process.
Thursday July 22nd the Sun returns home for Leo season and the call and confidence to step further into our truest and most authentic sense of Self becomes stronger.
We end the week with both Mercury in Leo and Venus in Cancer connecting with Jupiter in Aries which can create both excitement and emotions around this push to more fully understand who we are, where we came from and who we ultimately wish to be in this life.
There is no time like the present to look in the mirror, learn to love what you see and what is unique about you, and then share and be that to the fullest. ✨
Remember the Leo motto: Be You, everyone else is taken!☀️
Take care and have a great week friends! Nurture the Nature - for your well Being!
We have a big Capricorn Full Moon week ahead.
Capricorn is about maturity, accountability and building secure structures and foundations for following our purpose, reaching goals and sustaining a desired way of life.
And this Full Moon week holds powerful energy for totally transforming the future based on how we take responsibility for the past and what’s presently in front of us.
Tuesday, Venus in Gemini trines Saturn Rx in Aquarius, the ruler of this Full Moon, helping us recognize and assess our progress and what we’ve learned that is informing us for the way forward. There is always choice in how we respond to what happens in our lives and there is a lot to respond to these days.
Then Wednesday, the Capricorn Full Moon arrives and moves into conjunction with Pluto Rx to highlight where we really must take responsibility for our actions and life choices while also evaluating and being realistic about what needs to end or change to improve things for our own good.
Mercury in Cancer with the Sun will sextile Uranus in Taurus activating the desire to share what’s really on our hearts and minds. But Venus square Neptune Rx in Pisces could challenge the ability to be totally truthful and ask for what we need. It can also bring up deep emotions about an issue or cause confusion around a decision you’re trying to make. Take the time necessary to process what is coming up and through before making any hard calls.
Over the weekend the Cancer Sun officially conjuncts Mercury on Saturday and both trine Neptune Rx in Pisces on Sunday as Venus enters Cancer.
This can be an emotional time where kindness and self-care become top priority. Feelings of nostalgia, sadness, joy, love and even creativity can all be overwhelming. With this much water flowing it’s impossible to not feel the pull on our heartstrings and imaginations.
Take care and have a great week friends! Nurturing the Nature - for your well Being!
Today is the U.S. Independence Day holiday, but the concept of freedom is up for serious debate at this time and many Americans are understandably not feeling much like celebrating. But the U.S. Pluto Return and rebirth this country is going through will take years. So try to have compassion for the transformation process on both a personal and collective level.
Now for this week we continue waxing forward from the Cancer New Moon and move through the 1st quarter square in Libra on Wednesday. This brings a need to share what’s on our hearts and minds with others to clear the air and improve relationships. Perhaps there’s a desire to make peace, comfort someone or stand up for yourself and communicate your true needs.
But first, Monday and Tuesday, Mars and Mercury move in sextile unison through the final degree of Aries and Gemini and into Taurus and Cancer. Actions and communications shift into slower more thoughtful approaches which can help strengthen bonds and partnerships. Mutual respect and co-operation can come easy with assertive, honest and calmer exchanges.
Mercury moves into a square on Friday to Jupiter in Aries which is slowing down and preparing to shift retrograde at the end of the month. Be mindful of pushing the limits, mentally or physically, and think carefully or seek wise counsel before speaking or making any big decisions that might have irrevocable consequences. However, the Moon in Scorpio at this time can support having needed tough talks to work through past hurts for healing or finding the heart for real forgiveness.
Then the Cancer Sun sextiles Uranus in Taurus on Sunday. Seek security in the safest people and places, while staying open to whatever comes to pass. Flexibility, careful communication, and kindness will go a long way this week, this month and beyond.
Take care and have a good week friends. Nurture the Nature - for your well Being!
Advocate for Self-care!
We kicked off the week with Mars sextile Saturn Rx and this can feel like one foot is on the gas while one is on the brake, and sets a start/stop tone for the week.
In light of Cancer season energy, recent events in the news and the Cancer New Moon, I feel like it’s a good time to advocate for extreme self-care.
This Cancer New Moon helps us tune into our innermost needs and encourages us to set intentions for our own well being. With the Moon in it's home sign we can feel a desire to retreat for rest and reflection, but with all the aspects to this New Moon we can feel pushed to or like we should be doing more. Maybe the best action to take now is none or only doing what feels the most nurturing for you and for those who need you most.
Neptune, the planet of imagination, dreams and illusion stations retrograde at 25 Pisces just before the New Moon so further calling us inward to seek spiritual peace, solace, calm and guidance for the way forward. This subtle undercurrent also encourages us to go with the flow and trust in the divine timing of life and have faith all will work out, somehow, ultimately for our highest good.
Then Friday we enter July with Mars making square to Pluto Rx which can bring power struggles or challenges in protecting ourselves, families and life as we wish to live it; which is ideally free and independent. Battles can ensue now if we feel restricted, but make sure you’re clear on what you are fighting for before doing anything you might regret later.
Finally, Saturday Mercury trines Saturn Rx and squares Neptune Rx allowing for some constructive conversations to happen while also challenging hearts to open to find better solutions for progress. Trust your intuition and be aware of possible deceptions or missing information before taking action that may cause more harm than good.
Be well & take good care this week! Nurture the Nature - for your well Being!
June 20th, - 26th, 2022
This week we wrap up Mercury ruled Gemini season and welcome in Moon ruled Cancer season and Summer here in the North.
Gemini rules quick trips and Cancer rules home. So perhaps this is a great week to return home or plan a trip to visit.
Monday, Mercury, makes a sextile to Jupiter in Aries which gives direction and energy for either making big progress on tasks at hand, or a boost of motivation for taking that much needed vacation or making summer plans.
Tuesday is the Solstice and the Sun begins its journey through Cancer as the Moon in Aries meets up with Jupiter to spark celebration and show us what’s possible for the next quarter of the year. In the moment this can be fun and free from stress, but it can also signal potential problems or challenges that might be ignited along the way. So set intentions for this next chapter around taking care of your innermost needs and maintaining safe and secure foundations for holding you steady through whatever might come.
I will be bringing in Cancer season while on our annual trip to June Lake in the Eastern Sierras. Camping and reconnecting with nature is always a beautiful and nurturing way to begin this new season for our family. Hope you bring it in with something comfy and close to your heart too.
Wednesday the Moon meets up with Mars as Venus enters Gemini, which initiates ideas for more fun, social events and adventures for the new season. Enjoy!
Thursday and Friday the Moon moves through Taurus and a conjunction with Uranus. Plan to indulge in what feels best to you, but stay open to the ideas of others. A change might turn into a nice surprise experience.
Saturday evening the Moon enters Gemini and heads toward a meet up with Venus. A double date or a night out with friends feels like a great option for the weekend.
Happy Solstice! And have a great week friends! Nurture the Nature - for your well Being!
June 13th, - 19th, 2022
This week is eventful, busy and exciting with a variety of energies to juggle, fit for Gemini season.
Here is a quick rundown:
Monday, June 13th - Mercury returns to Gemini giving us a second chance to make progress on ideas, learning and projects initiated back in late April. It's also a great time for socializing or taking short trips. And since variety is the spice of life for Gemini maybe you want to do a little of each. Launch a project, take a class, plan a trip or party. All great ideas between now and July 4th!
Tuesday, June 14th - The Sagittarius Full Moon sets the stage for the rest of the week. Jupiter in Aries rules this Full Moon and although not making any major aspects at the moment is still a strong player. Jupiter is giving us a boost of courage and motivation to pursue our dreams, push life forward and fight for what we want. Self belief is the first key to success and more important than what others might say or think. So this is the time to follow your inner truth and keep going for it.
June 16th - The Sun makes its official trine to Saturn Rx in Aquarius & square to Neptune in Pisces. This energy combo supports making important evaluations and exploring possible paths forward for the future, and ultimately putting our belief in ourselves and what results are possible from our efforts to the test. The key here is to put in the work, ignore any negative noise, trust the process and surrender to whatever is meant to be for you will be.
June 18th - Venus in Taurus squares Saturn Rx & sextiles Neptune. This can bring some doubts and challenges in work or relationships. So perhaps a nice time out to pause, reflect and consider next steps will be welcomed and good for all involved. And since this is Father's Day weekend don't forget to send out a card or make a call to dad on Sunday.
Have a great week friends! Nurture the Nature - for your well Being!
June 6th, - 12th, 2022
This week we move through the 1st quarter Moon in Virgo which is asking us to clean up our space, and nurture our minds and bodies to ensure we are working in service to self and others to our best ability. This will also allow us to cultivate more creativity, health and harmony in our lives.
Burn out can happen easily during Gemini season with this energy producing so much to juggle and do. This is where having Saturn retrograde can support the necessary slow down needed to restructure in order to go further more efficiently and successfully.
So pause, continue pacing yourself to progress and trust the right pathway will open and take you where you are most meant to go in divine timing.
Mercury moves through the final degrees of Taurus this week and will trine Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn on Friday. This is a great chance to honor and rid yourself of whatever is no longer helping you manifest abundance while serving from your deepest passions and mission. Remember the 'less is more' theory.
Finally, on Saturday Venus meets up with Uranus in Taurus which can bring a beautiful surprise, offer or invitation. This may be just the opportunity you've been waiting for and have actually called in through your conscious efforts to grow beyond your comfort zone. Nice! Enjoy!
Have a good week friends! Nurture the Nature - for your well Being!
May 30th - June 5th, 2022
With so much forward and back action this week in the energies we can also feel a bit dizzy, confused, stuck or spinning in one place. We may want to race ahead but things may not make sense yet or directions not totally clear. So a good idea might be to pace yourself.
Use this time to complete things and make solid plans for next steps and even evaluate what work must be completed and what can wait. Create a short term plan as well as a long term one so you can feel accomplished in the moment and still be moving toward your larger goals.
The week can start out slow with Monday being a holiday here in the States. But the Gemini Moon will be moving toward a trine to Saturn and a square to Neptune for Tuesday which can make it challenging to focus and get things going no matter where you are.
Wednesday June 1st the Moon in Cancer will square off the Mars Jupiter conjunction still in play. This fire and water combo can help get you motivated, but be mindful because it can also cause emotions to a boil over and ruin any ability to make progress. Stay calm, do only what is possible and absolutely necessary, and avoid making mountains out of mole hills.
Thursday the Cancer Moon trine to Neptune in Pisces can allow for kindness, comforting and letting go of past pains or problems in order to heal, learn from experiences, and move on.
Then Friday vibes get happier when Moon in Leo trines the Mars/Jupiter in Aries and Mercury shifts direct!! Hallelujahs will be heard all around.
But temper your excitement to ensure you're not ticked off on Saturday when the Moon squares Uranus and Venus in Taurus, Saturn shifts retrograde, and the reality hits that life is not going to speed back up to the pace you might want.
See, pacing will be key to keeping hopes alive, life on track and sanity in tacked. Keep breathing and have a good week!
Nurture the Nature - for your well Being!
May 23rd - 29th, 2022
It's a big line up of astro connections this week that will inform our minds, motivations, direction and purpose. It's easy under Gemini energy to get scattered and if it's not your strong suit to juggle all the things you want and need to do in a day a struggle will ensue. So get focused, make a list or plan, and be prepared to roll with changes to the program.
Mercury retrograde is back in Taurus reminding us to work smarter and not harder. Getting caught up on projects and prep for future launches will be a productive use of time, as well as, redesigning or updating profiles, infographics, presentations or other tech tools needed for making progress.
We dive right into the business of the week on Monday with sextiles between Sun and Jupiter, Mercury Rx and Mars. Creative minds are sharpe and multi-tasking to move multiple things forward at once is the name of the game.
Tuesday Mars returns to his home sign of Aries and Venus makes sextile with Saturn in Aquarius. The push to start gaining ground on investments to work and relationships is heating up. Positive returns are possible and patience can start wearing thin if not.
Midweek Mercury Rx trines Pluto Rx in Capricorn and Venus in Aries squares him before entering Taurus on Saturday. We now move into a time when working hard on something you love doesn't feel like work at all, but rather empowering to be more aligned with a true sense of value and purpose.
Venus returning home now also supports leaning into your heart's mission, sharing your gifts and talents more confidently and living from a more secure place of knowing your worth.
Finally, on Sunday we arrive at the much talked about conjunction between Mars and Jupiter in Aries. They heat up the dark moon waters and launch us into the Gemini New Moon on Monday. Then life gets even busier! So rest up!
Have a good week friends! Nurture the Nature - for your well Being!
May 16th - 22nd, 2022
We are now on the other side of this set of eclipses but it’s another big week as we move through these peak energies, wrap up this momentous Taurus season and move into Gemini season.
If you’ve been shaken to the core and deeply shifted with this eclipse phase congratulations you’re in the flow. And if you’ve been making changes, making space, and attempting to do things differently and more aligned with who you are becoming, keep it up. But stay present and flexible to avoid overwhelm, frustration or projecting false hopes on the future. Mars makes it’s official meet up with Neptune in Pisces on Tuesday which can activate creativity while also surrendering to divine will about what it ultimately becomes. And when he connects with Pluto Rx at the end of the week a vision or plan for how to structure projects going forward can come into better view. So stay diligent even if things are still a bit messy or unclear.
On Thursday Mercury Rx backs into a sextile with Jupiter in Aries and the Sun makes a positive trine with Pluto Rx from Taurus before entering Gemini on Friday. This is another helpful energy for experimenting or making determinations about which direction you’d like to consider or explore more deeply to build on your vision.
On Saturday, Mercury Rx goes cazimi as it meets the Sun in Gemini and this tricky energy encourages us to stay agile and open to things working differently than initially planned. Then on Sunday Mercury dips back into Taurus and asks us to revisit what was on our mind in late April to see how to best established the foundation for the new future based on what’s been learned since then.
Final note; the Moon wanes now through Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and ends the week in Pisces. So our energies can go from high vibe work focused to running out of gas by the weekend and needing to relax and refuel. So plan accordingly!
Have a good week friends! Nurture the Nature - for your well Being!
May 9th - 15th, 2022
This is a big week for taking big chances friends. Jupiter jumping into Aries Tuesday and the build up to the Lunar Eclipse on Sunday will indeed be powerful and intense.
Mercury shifts retrograde the same day and we begin to find ourselves seemingly moving backwards in our lives. But remember, retrogrades are an optical illusion. This is just a time to gather missed information to better inform the way forward. So let's love up on Mercury as the true master of messaging that he is.
The Moon moves through Virgo, Libra and much of Scorpio before the culmination of energies and emotions at the Full Moon. So start testing some ideas or possible new approaches and see what you learn. Mercury is retrograde until June 3rd and out of his shadow June 18th, so don't rush to make any decision that you don't have to just yet.
You can read more about the Lunar Eclipse here. And I wish you all the best on your journey through your this second leg of eclipse season.
Have a good week friends! Nurture the Nature - for your well Being!
May 2nd - 8th, 2022
Embarking on an exciting new journey!
This week can feel like the beginning of a whole new journey after this weekend’s eclipse and magical Venus/Jupiter conjunction in Pisces.
So now it’s time to begin the practical integrations for our new self awareness and insights.
It’s a busy week in the sky as Venus kicks things off with a dramatic exit from Pisces and into Aries. As the fog clears it will be easier to see and act on your desires with more confidence. This will feel exciting.
Tuesday and Wednesday Jupiter connects with Pluto now retrograde and Mars with Uranus which will assist in locating what needs to be eliminated or changed in your business operations or personal positioning to expand on your grander visions and plans for forward growth.
Thursday the Taurus Sun makes its annual meet up with Uranus as Mercury in Gemini gets in touch with Venus in Aries. Innovative, creative ideas are sprouting and it will be fun to explore new ways of engaging with your favorite groups and like minded communities.
Finally on Saturday the Sun gets sexy with Mars in Pisces which can make for a romantic and lovely weekend. We celebrate our beautiful mothers this weekend too, so plan something special to show your love and appreciation for the one who gave you life. Have a beautiful week friends! Nurture the Nature - for your well being!
April 25 - May 1st, 2022
This is a big week ahead friends! We wane toward the Taurus New Moon Eclipse where we can turn a major corner on our journey, make new choices, break new ground and plant new seeds for growing into our new future. This can be beyond exciting and also overwhelmingly scary and exhausting.
This life-changing energy can come with magical meetings, awakenings and fresh starts or breakdowns, breakthroughs and inevitable endings.
Venus, Neptune and Jupiter all meeting up this week in Pisces as we move through this eclipse can produce moments of great hope and possibility mixed with heavy emotion, foggy brain or feelings of fear, loss and uncertainty.
Do your best to surrender through the growing pains of this time. Stay grounded in your body and keep trusting the journey is taking you where you are meant to go.
Communications planet Mercury enters his retrograde pre-shadow phase and gets a progress report from stationing Pluto about what needs to be reworked to really build the kind of long term success you desire. Then Friday, Pluto shifts retrograde and Mercury returns home to Gemini for a while before retrograding on May 10th.
Remember, retrogrades don’t have to mean death to all doing and progress. It can mean finally being able to make hard decisions, get long awaited answers or accomplish some things on your growing to do list.
As we enter May, Venus will sextile Pluto Rx helping to release what needs to go to grow. Pluto continues helping in this process as we move toward and through the Scorpio Eclipse on May 15th which he will rule.
Taurus season is about working together, sharing and lighting the load, as well as learning about what’s really most valuable and important to us. It also helps us discover the strength we carry within to nurture ourselves and maintain a stable, happy quality of life.
Best of luck and see you on the other side friends. Nurture the Nature - for your well being!
April 18th - April 24th, 2022
We enter the week in the final day of Aries season and the official Sun square Pluto that activated the Libra Full Moon. Direct energies in positive ways to work through any personal or relationship challenges you’re going through. Venus sextile Uranus can support finding a good compromise or middle ground solution.
Tuesday the Sun enters Taurus and we shift into new energies. It will feel easier to slow down, appreciate what we have and enjoy some quality quiet time with those that matter most in our lives and working on things that don’t feel like work.
Over the weekend Mercury in Taurus will square Saturn requiring us to put some serious thought and attention on what is or isn’t working and what needs to change to make things work better in our relationships and lives. A sextile from Neptune can inspire great ideas and help with creative projects, but hold off on making decisions around practical matters because you may not be seeing the full picture around the situation yet.
The Moon will move from Scorpio, through Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aquarius this week bringing our needs and emotions through a process of considering where we must conserve and where we must expand to build the future of our dreams. We’re still going with the flow and feeling our way these ever evolving times.
Take care and have a great week friends! Nurture the nature - For your well Being!
April 11th - April 17th, 2022
This is a HUGE week ahead! The Pisces Palooza of Jupiter & Neptune is here to help us transcend to higher self and higher ground.
Tuesday April 12th is the big day, Jupiter and Neptune conjoin in their co-ruling sign of Pisces for the first and last time in our lives. It's a historical moment that holds so much potential it's hard to wrap our minds around it. But I don't think we are supposed to. We are feeling, sentient beings and Pisces strongly reminds us of this truth. So tuning into our feelings and emotions will be greatly enhanced and informative for the way forward now.
It's a beautiful time to get lost in exploration, healing and deepening the connection to others and ourselves so we can pass through this portal of growth potential with grace, hope and faith. Faith that perseverance will pay off and we feel more alive and empowered on the other side.
The Aries Sun also makes a sextile to Saturn in Aquarius during this big event strengthening the capacity for breaking through old patterns, beliefs and blocks in order to initiate a new way of being and journeying towards a better way of life. On Thursday April 14th Mars enters Pisces and sparks a desire to be of service in new ways and travel on more spiritual paths. Acts of compassion and love can take us far.
Saturday April 16th our Libra Full Moon encourages seeking harmony, creating a better balance and more meaning in our relationships from our place of new self awareness.
And Sunday April 17th Mercury conjoins Uranus in Taurus and sextiles Venus in Pisces. Sharing what has transpired within your heart and mind will start to become easier. And manifesting your desires with your gifts and talents will begin to feel more possible. Have a great week astrology friends! Nurture the nature - For your well Being!
April 4th - April 10th, 2022
This is a busy week and month ahead friends! We are now waxing forward again with the full force of all planets in direct motion at our backs. Making the most of the energies this month will help inform and carry you more successfully through the rest of the year and beyond.
Monday, Mars conjoins Saturn in Aquarius to kick things off with a serious boost of innovative energy for progressing projects, plans and passions forward or getting new ones off the ground. Shift directions toward where you see open doors and exciting possibilities.
Tuesday, Venus enters Pisces giving creativity, love, relationships and sensitivities an extra boost. This can support taking things to next levels or finally releasing what is no longer beneficial for your future.
Venus has a very powerful passage through Pisces because it will be adding significant energy to the once-in-a-lifetime connection between Jupiter and Neptune happening on the 12th. Go with grace, have compassion and set up healthy boundaries to ensure you aren't taking on too much or more importantly absorbing what isn't yours to carry.
Then Mercury blazes through his key connections with Saturn, Mars and Pluto before heading into Taurus land. Now's the time to use your wit, wisdom, knowledge and knowing to make decisions, changes and moves to progress in new ways to produce new results.

It's Springtime friends, and tis the season to planet the seeds for what you wish to nurture, grow and harvest when the divine timing is right. This week the Moon moves from Taurus, perfect for planting, through Gemini to support all of our busy work and into Cancer where watering is needed to ensure essential nurturing. And when Luna enters Leo it's time for a Spring break and some more fun. ☀️

Now that Mercury has entered Aries we can speak our minds more directly and put action behind our words. And the Aries New Moon conjunct Chiron and Mercury this Thursday initiates an emotional, yet deeply healing fresh start.
As we all know, in order for something new to grow something else must be let go. We still have the great Jupiter Neptune conjunction building and bringing lots of emotion around the reality of this natural transition of life.
However, there is still a strong desire to rejoice and have some fun this Aries season. The fun we are having just seems to be much more significant given the recent limitations to our freedom to get out and play.
And speaking of play, the week kicks off Monday with Venus joining Saturn in Aquarius to support creating a good balance between work and free time for fun. Take care of business and wrap up projects or work early in the week so you can have play over the weekend and move on to new things next week.
Then Thursday night the Aries New Moon completes a huge cycle of growth and opens the door to a whole new you and world of opportunity to be freely and more confidently yourself.
Saturday Mercury makes it’s exact conjunction to the Sun and this is a great time to take a quick trip, get out to a ball game or party with friends.
Overall, we affirm awarenesses around our need for independence to be true to ourselves and others in our lives as the Moon finishes its passage through Aquarius on Monday and makes connections with Mars, Venus and Saturn. It then enters Pisces into Tuesday and connects with Jupiter and Neptune on Wednesday to bring huge emotional tides. There will likely be tears of sadness and joy around what is ending and beginning. Thursday the Moon enters Aries early morning and joins the Sun late evening for our dark moon moment of rebirth. Have a great week astrology friends! Nurture the nature - For your well Being!
March 20th - March 27th, 2022
Mars is now getting more attention as the ruler of the Sun in Aries. And the action planet is in Aquarius and working with Uranus in Taurus on Tuesday. Innovation is the key to future success now. Are you feeling ready to break ground on a new way forward? You don't have to be impulsive, but it's a great time to put a plan in place and start taking action to bring your vision from concept into reality.
Wednesday Mercury will join Neptune in Pisces which can be a magical day for dreams, imaginations and creative expression. Explore more deeply, share or promote your ideas, art, gifts or talents. Or if you prefer for now, just get lost in them to discover more of what truly drives and inspires you.
Then over the weekend Mercury in Pisces will sextile Pluto in Capricorn before moving into Aries on Sunday. This can be a prime opportunity to solidify winning ideas, find solutions to any areas still in question and start speaking them into being. Also, remembering where the Moon is can always help us stay tuned into our personal energies and flowing with them instead of against them each day.
This week the Moon moves us from Scorpio and a deeply passionate need to get things moving on Monday, through Sagittarius on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with a boost of extra drive and confidence to give something new a try. Then over the weekend Moon in Capricorn can help us structure things for success based on what we're learning through trial and error. And finally the Moon enters Aquarius late Sunday and meets up with Mars to kick off another week of exciting Aries season.
In a nutshell, there is a passionate desire and excitement around going for what we want or expanding on what we've been hoping to grow for a long time. It's starts to really feel possible now. And that's because it is! Go for it my friends!

March 13th - March 19th, 2022
We head into this final week of Pisces season as the Sun floats away from its dreamy conjunction with Neptune. And with the Moon in Leo heading into a Virgo Full Moon you may feel inspired, lit up and ready to start dreaming outside the box to take life to the next level.
Enjoy surfing the waves of inspiration and creative juices flowing in fast. Ideas and projects can come together like magic or a miracle now. And as Mercury sextiles Uranus you can really experiment and innovate to explore all possibilities for making improvements and advances.
Friday the Full Moon brings to light where and how we need to integrate our inner and outer worlds and take practical steps to create a healthier real-life dream-life balance. This is the intention of the Pisces/Virgo health axis. Maybe you’ve been overwhelmed with too much on your plate, so swamped with the flood of fantastic ideas coming you’re sad you can’t keep up or perhaps you feel extra emotional, lost in a sea of sacrifice and surrender because of the harsh realities around you and so much uncertainty in the world. Regardless of where you fall on this spectrum the solution is in Virgo energy.
Create a daily ritual, routine or practice that provides you the grounding, focus and fortitude to really fly in the direction of your dreams. There is a ton of Pisces support for doing the dreaming right now, and a vision is key, but without the Virgo virtues of a well developed skill set, a plan and an organized approach it will take a lot longer to reach your goals. Over the weekend Venus squares Uranus. Progress and surprises can come in partnership and collaboration. It might be a little uncomfortable but also exciting. So don’t back down, build yourself up. Aries season arrives Sunday and the time to take a real chance on yourself will be here. Have a great week Astrology friends! Nurture the nature - For your well Being!
March 6th - March 12th, 2022
There are 2 notable transits this week, but there are still a lot of new energies in play helping us move forward. The biggest is Venus and Mars now in Aquarius answering to Saturn and Uranus. These two personal planets are ready to help us make new serious moves on all the things we've tried so hard to get going last year.
But you might not be ready or in the mood to talk about it yet. Instead you just might want to get lost in the work for now and make some progress behind the scenes. Especially when Mercury enters Pisces mid week.
Mercury in Pisces can be great for creative projects and the arts but can also make it hard to find the words to express your ideas or say what you mean when speaking with others. So look for unique ways of showing your work and feelings instead as we move into this transit.
The Pisces Sun moves into a conjunction with Neptune this week as well and will be exact over the weekend. This can inspire more dreaming, healing, hoping and also provide a boost of creative energy for sure. But it can also bring mental confusion, fatigue, overwhelm or fear that can block or slow down progress. If this happens for you have compassion and give yourself a break to nurture your heart and spirit so you can keep the faith and keep going.
Ultimately, I think it makes most sense to do what we can to serve others while building slowly on the life we want to dream in for ourselves and the world this week. Maybe knock out as much of the tedious tasks early in the week so you can take it easy over the weekend.
Once we jump into Aries season and Spring on the 20th we can really start showing who we are and what we've created. But for the next couple of weeks it may feel better to just go with the flow in all areas rather than pushing in any one direction. Take care and have a good week astrology friends! Nurture the nature - For your well Being!
Feb. 27th - March 5th, 2022
The focus will be on the Pisces New Moon this week and all the planetary happenings around it. There is limitless possibility for expansion and change if we can consciously replace our fears with faith. Belief is a powerful energy focus that can make all the difference in what is created in our world. And this is just one way we can co-create with the cosmos for positive growth both personally and collectively.
The Pisces Sun will sextile revolutionary planet Uranus in Taurus early in the week and join optimistic Jupiter over the weekend. This energy will inspire wanting to shake things up, quit old ways of operating and seek new ways to live in more alignment with universal love and our truest callings. It’s time release the old world views that have kept us separate and create new ways to coexist harmoniously.
The New Moon will also provide a beautiful opportunity to trust we are being divinely guided in the direction of our ultimate highest good. And more success can come in if we allow the path to unfold rather than preemptively pushing forward before we know where we’re going. However, communication planet Mercury will meet up with hard-working Saturn in Capricorn which can assist us in starting to draw up a plan for moving something meaningful and important for our future forward. Set intentions around this inspiration.
Mars & Venus also join Pluto in Capricorn at the New Moon before entering Aquarius on Saturday. Illumination of just how connected we all are and how each of our actions and choices plays a role in the collective evolution is getting stronger. So answering the Pisces call to raise consciousness and live with more compassion and faith may be just what can save us all and our planet while also making space for all of our destinies and dreams to flow in. Who’s in?

Feb. 20th - 26th, 2022
We are now in Pisces season and this week feelings flow through the Moon energies of diplomatic Air sign Libra, through fellow sensitive Water sign Scorpio, into expansive Fire sign Sagittarius and roots into Earthy Capricorn at the end of the week.
And a few key aspects between personal planets Mercury, Mars and Venus to outer trans-personal planets Uranus and Neptune will encourage us to open up our minds and hearts and tap into our intuition and imaginations to explore, discover and commit to the dream that is really calling us forward.
Set sail into the week with an outline of a plan, but remain open to that changing and trust that wherever it takes you is where you are meant to be.
Action planet Mars is still walking together with partnership planet Venus in Capricorn and they take turns making a sextile with Neptune in Pisces Wednesday and Thursday respectively. As we build to this point if you feel inspired by a project or person make a connection and see what develops. Create something or make a plan to create something. This is great energy for things magically coming together and forming something better than originally imagined.
At the same time communications planet Mercury in Aquarius is making a square to Uranus in Taurus on Thursday. This can stimulate innovation and ideas for how to make more progress. But don't get fixed on your own plans because exciting or unexpected news may come in to send you in a more doable direction.
On a health note; if you are feeling low, tired, unmotivated or uninspired, relax and get extra rest or do something physical to wake up your body. Mediation and Sleep are always soul soothing and reinvigorating. And activities like swimming, yoga or Qi Gong are a few other possibilities for changing your Chi.
Take care have a great week Astrology friends! Nurture the nature - For your well Being!
Feb. 13th - 19th, 2022
All systems are a go and this is a week for loving up and launching anything that's pulling on your heartstrings. Monday, Mercury enters Aquarius providing a second chance to seed all the ideas you wanted to in early January. The gained insight from the retrograde period can now help you move forward with more clarity, promise and possibility for achieving your goals.
This is also Cupid's Valentine's Day. So show your partner some deserved love and attention, but also show some appreciation for all the friends and like-minds who love and support you all year round too. We are in friend focused Aquarius season after all.
Wednesday the Leo Full Moon arrives along with the official start of Venus and Mars walking together until mid March through Capricorn and into Aquarius. These two will continue to point out the value and importance of considering who we choose to listen to and work with on our journey. But the Aquarius Sun rules this lunar phase and shines on the need to first listen to ones own wisdom and follow ones own heart and unique path to make real progress. Read more here.
Thursday, Jupiter makes an opportunistic sextile with Uranus in Taurus. Hope, optimism and surprise gifts or guidance can help bring dreams further into form. Receive, say yes and thank you.
Friday the Sun enters Pisces and we set sail into the biggest waves of energy of the year. All eyes are on the great Jupiter/Neptune conjunction in Pisces on April 12th, but first the Sun and Neptune meet on March 12th to set the wise waters in motion for this big moment. Much more to come on this as well. But you can start preparing now by anchoring into your heart and Soul to ensure stability and flexibility so you can successfully surf and survive any rough seas that may come your way.

Feb. 6th - 12th, 2022
We enter this week still very much feeling the weight, responsibility and seriousness of a Capricorn and predominantly Saturn ruled sky. It’s been tough but necessary to take stock and a hard look at the reality of current life to assess which roads are worth traveling and which are not.
The good news is all that effort and hard work can start paying off in surprising ways now and real progress is possible. This is because all planets are in forward motion now, Venus and Mercury are building momentum and action planet Mars in Capricorn is leading the energies this week.
Sunday Mars in Capricorn squares Chiron in Aries. This energy can easily cause irritation or misdirected upset. So ease into the week with compassion and patience. Work alone or take alone time to process through and clear inner conflicts before engaging with others.
Tuesday Mars makes a trine to Uranus which can provide a boost of energy to break through blocks and initiate action steps on projects and plans. And there may be surprise news or happenings that help move things along in unexpected but positive ways too. Trust that however things go it will ultimately be for your highest good.
And Friday Mercury makes its last of 3 exact conjunctions with Pluto in Capricorn so it will finally feel like it’s time to make decisions around what has been stirring deep within since late Dec. 2021. You are clear now about what your doing next, what you’re bringing forward and what you’re not.
As well, the week unfolds with the Moon moving through it’s 1st quarter square in Taurus through Gemini and ends the week in it’s home sign of Cancer. So you can nurture the nature of this energy by making self-care a top priority, taking slow and steady steps toward your goals while staying open-minded and open-hearted.

Jan. 31st - Feb. 5th, 2022
All the energies in play this week are influenced by the build up too and results of the Aquarius New Moon arriving on Monday night.
First, on Sunday the Aquarius Sun squares Uranus. This can initiate a desire to break free from anything that is restricting, blocking and not supporting your true self expression. And feeling liberated it’s easier to take some risks or try something new to move life forward. Late Monday night in the West, Tuesday morning in the East the Sun and Moon meet up to initiate next level new beginnings from a place of maturity, inner knowing and personal authority.
Then Thursday is a day to celebrate as Mercury stations direct in Capricorn! As the messenger planet picks up speed so can our productivity. And still in conjunction with Pluto, we can finally solidify and commit to the routines, plans, projects and budgets that can help sustain our well being and support us in reaching our long term goals.
And Friday the Sun makes its official conjunction with Saturn while Mars in Capricorn makes a sextile with Jupiter in Pisces. Steady efforts toward your ambitions can help build a stronger sense of achievement which will encourage more action and growth. If you've been feeling confused or uncertain you should begin to feel more clear and confident. This momentum will carry us into February and through March and April as all planets will be in direct motion as of the end of this week. Start exploring new areas of opportunity to learn and evolve so you can plant visionary new seeds to grow after the New Moon.
Push through fear and doubt, renew your belief in possibility and break new ground to build a better future. The only way to know if something will work is to give it a try. So what do you really have to lose? Are you ready to take a leap of faith and go for what you want?

Jan. 23rd - Jan. 29th, 2022
This will be a week of brainstorming, rethinking, reinventing and refining your ideas and options for the future to establish a solid plan for the path forward.
Sunday we get a mental blast of inspiration when the Aquarius Sun meets up with Mercury Retrograde. And Mars traveling through the final degree of Sagittarius will also help turn the wheels of wonder and possibly too. So grab a pen and get all the downloads down on paper. You can worry about how they might all come together or work out later.
Monday we wake up with action planet Mars in the task master Saturn's sign of Capricorn. This brings the motivation to start making bold moves towards building those long overdue projects out. Progress can really get going after February 3rd once both Venus and Mercury are in direct motion too, but you can start gearing up now and preparing for go time. Tuesday Mercury Retrograde steps back into Capricorn and will help strengthen concentration and focus. Answers to hard questions can be found through doing serious analysis and assessments.
Friday Mercury meets back up with Pluto to uncover what has to change or go in order to reach your goals. This is a powerful energy for pushing hard and getting results so be sure before you make the call. This can also be a constructive time for therapy, deep dialogue, shadow work or grounding meditation to clear mental blocks and secure inner strength and knowing before you proceed. Maybe wait until next weekend.
Saturday Venus stations Direct at 11 Capricorn and gets a meet up with the Moon. This will be a lovely day to slow down for some much needed TLC before it’s time to get back to work. Schedule and treat yourself to that long overdue message, facial, mani/pedi, bubble bath or beauty treatment of choice. When you look and feel your best you can do your best.

Jan. 16th - Jan 22nd, 2022
This week’s big energies have already begun with the extremely powerful conjunction between the Sun and Pluto in Capricorn. This destructive Earth combination has already made it’s statement in nature with yesterday’s underwater volcano eruption in Tonga that flooded local areas and produced Tsunami warnings for the coasts of several other countries.
Astrological and real life events like this quickly put life into proper perspective. And Monday’s Full Moon in Cancer, the sign of family, roots and belonging, opposite this Sun/Pluto force really brings these feelings home.
It’s a time of reflections and revaluations about what is most important, and what must be overcome or come to an end in order to integrate desired new structures and better life balance.
And with Venus and now Mercury retrograde the reviewing of value systems, resources and partnerships continues, but now you may also start looking at how you communicate and engage with others too. Whether it’s with loved ones, friends or on line, you may be looking for ways to better express yourself, manage life or run your business.
And remember with endings there are always exciting new beginnings. And we have three this week. Uranus shifts direct. The Nodes of destiny enter Scorpio and Taurus. The Sun enters Aquarius.
Expect unexpected awakenings, choices, changes, invitations or inspirations that truly alter your direction and ideas for what is possible.
And with the Nodes of Fate in Scorpio Taurus until July 2023 we will be spending a lot more time evaluating and adjusting our resources and relationships to build stronger bonds and foundations for living a more stable and secure life. So stay strong and ride these big shifts and waves of change slowly and consciously this week because we will be riding them for a while.
Have a good week Astrology friends. Nurture the nature - For your well Being!
Jan. 9th - Jan. 15th, 2022
Just after the powerful Sun Venus Rx conjunction on the 8th initiating a renewal of love, relationship and value assessment we head into a week where we are inspired to faithfully follow our heart and intuition on the path forward toward building the future of our dreams.
Here are the 3 key transits to keep in mind: Monday the Capricorn Sun makes a SEXtile with Neptune in Pisces to inspire making quiet commitments of dedication to yourself to do whatever is required to bring form to your dreams. Stay true to you and focused on the long term goals rather than getting lost in any immediate feelings of uncertainty or doubt. Trust and believe all your hard work will pay off in time and for the highest good and it will.
Tuesday Mars in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces to check your motivations and inspire acting with confidence and compassion in building your vision for your life. It will take faith that there will be ground under each step on a path divinely guiding you toward your highest good even if you can't see the way or the ultimate destination yet.
And Friday Mercury stations retrograde at 10 Aquarius to inspire innovation around old ideas and projects in order to make the long overdue progress you know is possible with the right structure and opportunity. Remember Mercury will retrograde back into Capricorn Jan. 25th, go direct at 24 Capricorn on February 3rd and reenter Aquarius February 14th. With patience and good preparation things should be clearer and on course by then.
Take good care and have a good week Astrology friends! Nurture the nature - For your well Being!
Jan 1st - Jan. 8th, 2022
