Serious Moonlight – January 4, 2016

Serious Moonlight – January 4, 2016

Welcome to 2016!
Today is the first official work day of the year 2016. It is a time when most people are returning to their daily routine, even though the 12 days of Christmastide are not quite finished (Christmastide is 12 days, 25 December through 5 January) in the Christian liturgical calendar.
In Tarot, today kicks off a week ruled by the Moon trump in the Major Arcana. The Moon card represents the Moon in Scorpio, which we are experiencing today. The Moon in Scorpio can be felt as delving into the dark knowledge of the depths of the soul, deep intuition, intensity and high stress.
The Moon in Scorpio is the Moon in the sign of its fall, meaning it is very weak. However there is a lot of support for this Moon this week because of other placements:
We have a trine aspect with Neptune in Pisces, a sextile aspect with the Sun and Pluto in Capricorn, and a sextile aspect with expansive, abundant Jupiter in Virgo. The Moon in Scorpio can be a harsh placement but with this type of energy circulating in our universe, there is a lot of positive to come from it.
If there is something challenging or difficult with which you must contend, do not put it off. Deal with it now under this energy and you will be able to get to the heart of the matter in every way and come to a good practical solution ot two. In fact, you could end up feeling quite happy with the results. Hard work today and tomorrow mean satisfaction and progress by the end of the week.
Use your intuition to (Moon/Neptune) and count to 10 before responding so you can maintain a stable mood (Sun/Pluto/Moon)
Avoid letting others rile you up today and tomorrow (and they WILL be trying to do that). Stay steady and stable in your mood. Count to not only 10 but 30 and remember you can always quickly excuse yourself and walk away rather than react or respond before responding.
When someone is trying to intentionally irritate me or anger me (and I trust my intuition to tell me that), I often quickly cut them off with a smile and say “hold that thought, I’ll be back!” and then quickly walk away and out of the room or over to another conversation. I get back to them some time later.
It is an effective strategy.
We have Mercury retrograde starting tomorrow and taking us through January 26.
Today is also good for sitting in silence with yourself and reflecting on your life situations. It is also a good time to call and ask questions about what is lurking in your heart.
I am taking calls on my schedule, which you will find via my homepage. If you need an appointment outside those times, please email me.
May you thrive under this serious moonlight!
Blessing be upon you

Logical Leadership – June 15, 2015 – New Moon In Gemini

Logical Leadership – June 15, 2015 – New Moon In Gemini

We have late spring weather, and in California  that just means a bit of June gloom in the morning while the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean heats up for the day. We are wearing shorts as we do and can year-round. Winter’s cold and frost is far away. Yet, something magical is about to occur.

That is why this month’s New Moon in Gemini may bring a chill. This lunation takes place at 25º 07’ Gemini on June 15, 2015 at 7:05 PM PST/10:05 PM EST/June 16, 2015 at 4:05 AM CEST in Central Europe.

The message of this lunation is that even though you are surrounded and maybe even somehow imprisoned by cold, malevolent, harsh people and/or circumstances, there is beauty, magic and wonder to be had. You are in the right place at the right time and you can turn this chilling situation in your favor with the warmth of your personal charm and leadership.

Do you remember the Christmas movie with Kris Kringle and how he had to go through the frightening icy woods? Do you remember when he got captured by the Winter Warlock and his evil trees?


Be thankful for all you have and all you are encountering now. That applies especially if it seems things are dark, cold, cruel and hopeless. Gratitude greases the wheels of magic. This is how and when miracles happen.

Gratitude is the bright light that appears in the icy woods, among the frost-covered trees. Winter light is beautiful — full of ice crystals, snowflakes that sparkle like falling diamonds in the chilly air. There is enchantment. The frosty luster spoken of in this Sabian degree for this New Moon in Geminiis about a beautiful magic that is present. Just like when Kris Kringle was caught by Winter Warlock and his wicked trees, there is something magical about to occur that will melt the ice. He kept a positive attitude in the midst of a chilling situation. He believed good could come out of the situation.  Gratitude will shift your perspective and that will bring about the change.

Communication and negotiation will be required and the cool, detached person who moves with confident style and diplomacy will triumph. Remember you are walking in an enchanted space June 15 through 17 and put one foot in front of the other, because soon you will be walking across floors, out doors and into places you thought were closed to you in life.  Remain calm and detached and watch the magic happen.

Speaking of walking, the Sabian symbol opposite this lunation is about something that will happen within this magical time.

Opposite is Sagittarius 26: A Flag Bearer In A Battle

winterwarlockkriskringleA sign of great courage is to lead others, holding a symbolic standard on high, defenseless, yet boldly into the fray. Energies today have a bounce back feel. You may find yourself uplifted by being exposed in battle, cool under pressure. You may also find you receive support for what was, until recently, something unattainable.

Changing the viewpoints of others is rarely achieved by reason alone. What is necessary is cool, calm, confident composure. At that point, you will naturally and enthusiastically  compel others to listen to what you have to say. A dramatic or long exposition of your position  may only attract fire and negativity. STOP SPEWING HOT AIR. Take cool action.

Sagittarius demands courage, flexibility, a jovial spirit and a desire to expand. Sagittarius is bold about pushing forth with an idea, about picking up the flag and leading the troops, even into battle. I remember in that Christmas program, Kris Kringle rallied an entire town, the Winter Warlock/Mr. Winter and other to all fight the terrifying Burgermeister Meisterburger and get toys to the children.

You must be grateful for the opportunities presented by your circumstances, have courage and be resilient. Be calm, cool, confident and a person of few but effective, clear words. Magic will happen with the New Moon in Gemini.

Order an astrology consultation to see where this New Moon in Gemini is affecting your life and how you can use the energy to your best advantage.

talentedmrripleyThe upcoming weekend, which features a Full Moon in Scorpio, will be one where we feel full with dramatic intensity. Occurring Sunday, May 3, 2015 11:42 pm ET at 13º 23′ Scorpio it is connected to the solar eclipse of November 2, 2013, which was at 12º Scorpio. Something occurring then will come to fruition now – and that could mean corrupt, twisted and hidden matters are dramatically exposed and the right things gets done.
