July begins with the Sun opposite Pluto; this is a once a year occurrence which reminds us to step into our sense of empowerment. We may feel challenged to do this through circumstances outside of ourselves that appear to be opposing us or threatening our security. We enter the month with Mercury retrograde, going within to understand our feelings will weave in and out of our consciousness until Mercury is direct on the 20th.
Know that all you need is within you, simply tap into your inner resources and feel empowered.
Saturn moves direct on July 8th, again this is a once in a year happening. This is called a station. Saturn has been retrograde since February 18th and now that it is moving forward again many issues that were brought to your attention in February will be handled.
This is a time to take responsibility towards having the life that is important for you, even if you must let go of the comfort of the past.
The New Moon in Cancer is on the 8th at 16 degrees. The Sabian symbol for this degree is “The unfoldment of Multilevel Potentialities Issuing From An Original Germ”
There is a very sweet energy with this new moon, with a grand trine in water between Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune. Harmony ensues with possibilities, imagination, spiritual growth and the discipline to put into action what needs to be done.
Mix in Venus connected with Uranus and you have a measure of fun and excitement to liven up the everyday life.
The 9th the Mercury makes its inferior conjunction to the Sun, meaning that Mercury is in between earth and the sun in alignment, time to go within and seek messages that help bring resolutions to having an emotionally full and happy life.
Mars moves into Cancer on the 13th, joining the cancer clan with the Jupiter, Mercury and the Sun. Putting effort into Cancer concerns, home, family, nurturing food, is ready to happen. Mars in Cancer can be whiny, keep a check on emotions stemming from unresolved childhood hurts and complaints.
Uranus moves retrograde on the 17th, another once a year occurrence. With an exact grand water trine happening when Uranus switches its course of action, many situations can be resolved through Chiron, Moon and Mercury, purging emotional wounds for healing and new thoughts that empower you.
Mercury moves direct on the 20th with plenty of good times for communicating with friends and family.
The full moon is on the 22nd, the day that the Sun enters Leo and Venus shifts to Virgo while at the same day Mars is overloaded with optimism conjunct Jupiter.
There will be another full moon in Aquarius this year, in August, therefore Aquarian friends get a double dose of moon magic to illuminate the path.
Venus enters Virgo on the 22nd which reminds us of the value of choosing what is right for us. Virgo is a fussy when it comes to what she likes and wants, so the details of life will be magnified to see what fits and what doesn’t.
The Sun enters Leo on the 22nd, Time for play and smelling the proverbial roses of life’s sweet offerings.
The full moon in Aquarius is on the 22nd Joy of friendship is exalted.

The 27th Mars is opposite Pluto and Sun square Saturn, sun quincunx Neptune
The month closes with mars square Uranus bringing excitement to everyday action.
Wishing you a joyful July.
If one was to say in a sentence or two what the energy of June holds for us it is stepping into our magical mystical mind that can co create the life you dream of. The connection of your emotional body with your higher self and intention expands joy and will be the wave on which your future moves towards you. Therefore be conscious of your thoughts and feelings, they are busy at work on the other side of the veil.
June begins with Mars having entered into Gemini the day before and Venus going into Cancer on the 2nd. Venus, what we want in our romantic life desires comfort and caring, and Mars, the get up and go guy, is antagonizing Venus with ‘quit complaining, just do something”
The inner battle between wanting our feelings heard and understood without somebody telling us why or trying to get us to feel different, and the natural inclination that if you feel bad, here is a solution to change it are at odds.
Neptune moves retrograde on the 7th, the day that Mercury and Pluto are in opposition on the node of Jupiter! Intense thinking will help you discover ways to shift into a deep spiritual life. A new paradigm emerges enabling one to step beyond the ordinary world into a world of what is practical and needs to be done into a world of transformation.
The new moon on the 8th is carrying with it the powerful vibration of Neptune and the ability to create your world through your thoughts carried with emotional charge.
Use the power of this new moon to visualize what is important to you. With the sun and moon in Gemini, the station and mystical powers of Neptune your thoughts will carry through to the other dimension where thoughts begin the formation and move into the 3D world as physical manifestations.
The power of thought is palpable for those who can sit and connect with the energy.
When the Sun enters Cancer, it is the solstice point, longest day of the year for those of us above the equator. Mars is at a point that is explosive, good for firework displays and problematic for irritable personalities.
Mercury is making its second of three retrogrades this year, in water signs. Mercury retrograde on the 26th in Cancer will have a shift to think with our feelings, and to reconsider what we need to feel happy in our emotional life. Wounds from childhood could bubble to the surface to be healed and released. Family drama can draw you in to take care of others and knowing what you can do, and what you can’t do will be essential from not having feelings of guilt, manipulation, frustration, or resentment creep in from rescuing a family member.
The month closes out with Venus moving into Leo, time for fun and less emotional attachment to worries and problems.

The supermoon eclipse is nearly upon us.
The theme of finding the good in all aspects of life will be prevalent this weekend. What is good about your friends, the situation, your circumstances? Looking at the possibilities and not the short comings is what is important. If a friend bemoans that they can’t do something and does not see the good in what is at hand, falling into the feeling of being a victim of circumstances will be very easy to do.
The weekend is charged with the full moon eclipse, connected to Neptune, and with a powerful Uranus Pluto square underlying current of lightness and gaiety.
The Uranus Pluto square is a shakeup energy that brings unexpected events to light for change and transformation.
Eclipses are shake up times also. The rays of the Sun or Moon is temporally shut out only to be more luminous when the lights shine again. This moon is one day away from the moon’s closest point to Earth for this month, which has a nick name, supermoon. What we are blessed by the moon flirting closer to earth is a big bright shining full moon. Where in your life would you like a bit of a change? Is there a place in your world that you would like to come to light to illuminate your path and way? If the eclipse is closely connected to your personal chart you may find life on a roller coaster ride, with ups and downs and no clarity about which direction to take. Being able to sit and meditate will help you reconnect with your higher self and the bigger picture to make decisions. An eclipse on your Venus can be meeting someone new or breaking up with a love that no longer holds the same promise. An eclipse on the planet for work can create drama or change in your job.
This full moon is connected with Neptune, the planet that brings forth both deep desire to connect with the divine, the part of life that takes us beyond this material world towards of realm of possibilities. Neptune does deal with deception, either from within or without: be on the watch for avoidance and denial. If there is something you don’t want to deal with you might be ready to run away from a problem. It is best to go within and get clarity; if you run from what you don’t want make sure you are running towards something that is important to you.
This will be a weekend that will call for being to appreciate music, laughter, meditation, and merging with the infinite. And for those close to a body of water, splashing in the lake, ocean or river will be delightful.
The Moon in Sagittarius beckons be truthful to you highest principles and Gemini Sun, reminds us to laugh along the way. We are but a fleeting moment in the vastness of the universe. Make each moment true for you.
How to work with the energies of this Full Moon Eclipse.
May all being be happy and filled with light and love.

Do you remember stories about dancing around the Maypole? The first of May has been celebrated for many centuries. In Astrology it is a time that marks the half way point between the spring equinox and the summer solstice (or visa versa for down under).
Understand the May Astrology 2013 with the upcoming eclipses and Uranus Pluto square and how it will effect your life. The month of May brings 2 eclipses and a major configuration in the sky with the Uranus Pluto square.
The Solar Eclipse on May 9th is in Taurus; a powerful time and reminder for us to understand what is near and dear to our hearts. The Taurus energy reveals to us what we want and need to feel secure in the world. It is a time of honoring what we have in our lives and embracing the abundance and prosperity all around you.
With the eclipse, anywhere in your life that you feel vulnerable about being secure will be brought to the surface. If you feel vulnerable in your job, fearful that it might be taken away from you, then this is a time to dive deep into your psyche and develop strength and courage and belief in yourself that you have the skills you need to get another job if yours is eliminated.
If you feel insecure and vulnerable in relationships, then this is the time to re-evaluate the love within and all the gifts and caring you can bring to another person. If you feel that it is too hard for you to give and share your love and life, then you will be awakened to opening up to developing love and acceptance towards others.
If you feel insecure around your ability to provide financial security for yourself, family or your future, then this powerful solar eclipse will point towards a path to what you need to do, know, or learn in order to have the skill needed to earn the income to not feel vulnerable.
Open your heart to your gifts and talents and allow for the messages to bring to you the ideas that you know, if you carried them through to completion, would increase the feeling of abundance and completeness in your life.
The Uranus Pluto square on May 20th is part of a long term transit that sends another round of shock waves to awaken your consciousness to what you need to feel free and what is needed to have the capability to live your life to its fullest.
On May 25th there is a Lunar Eclipse from Gemini to Sagittarius. This is a change in the eclipse pattern which has been concentrated in the Taurus Scorpio axis. Now the universe is pulling back in a reminder that in order to have the security and abundant life we want (Taurus) there is something to learn and discover and believe in (Gemini and Sag) that will allow for your life to move to the next level of manifesting and sharing your gifts and talents to the world.

Do you have your moon in Sagittarius?
Open and generous, you enjoy a wide circle of friends and acquaintances and you thrive on sociability and fellowship. You are adventurous, playful, freedom-loving, and always ready for a good time. You rarely allow obstacles or difficulties to keep you down, for no matter how bleak the past or present, you always expect a better, brighter future. In fact, you are uncomfortable with your own or other people’s problems and emotional pain. You often try to “cheer up” or offer philosophical advice to those who are hurting, but unwittingly you avoid or ignore the emotions involved. Friendship means a great deal to you, perhaps even more than love or romance. For you to be happy, your mate must be your best friend and encourage your aspirations and ideals. You also need a great deal of emotional freedom and mobility.
April opens with the alignment of planets stumbling in on the heels of the full moon from a few days before. Venus is moving away from Uranus in Aries who has been looking for an escape from boredom. Venus in Aries wants excitement in love life. This month can be filled with attempts to scale a cliff, ride the Ferris wheel and any other sorted capers that bring an adrenalin rush. Little does Venus realize that her recent escape from the center of the Sun (Venus conjunct Sun) that the path she is taking will throw her into the arms of Mars on April 7th. This new phase of Mars and Venus in Aries will dominate the theme for relationships for nearly two years. The Venus Mars conjunction is sandwiched in between the Sun on one side and Eris on the other. The Sun’s light is so strong it may obscure Venus and Mars from being seen. This means that your relationship, whether romantic or a relationship with what you love, will play second fiddle to the demands of the Sun, your work. On the other side of Venus and Mars we have Eris blocking the way. Eris represents where we have been left out of life, where we feel that everyone else gets to be ‘invited to the party’ and somehow we were left out. Perhaps you feel like an outsider looking in to all the well paying or high level positions that always seem to be given to someone else, or seeing others with loving and close family relationships knowing that yours is far from the Hallmark commercials. Anywhere you feel you have gotten the short end of the stick will become apparent with the new Venus Mars phase. The new moon on the 10th is your chance to set things right; it is time to get what you want or feel you need to be happy and independent. Courage is the key word. Have courage and be fearless in your endeavors. Let go of what might have been and start fresh. Pluto goes retrograde on the 12th. The day that Pluto is retrograde more ‘Pluto juice’ is available to center in deep meditation and connect with your subconscious and know what is holding you back from achieving your hearts desires.
Mercury moves into Aries on the 13th shifting communication to direct speech. If you have felt frustrated with others not being able to tell you what they think or feel, you will welcome this shift as one can now just blurt out what is on their mind. Venus enters Taurus on the 16th which begins a time of appreciation of fine art, food and objects. The Sun moves in Taurus on the 19th heralding a time to slow down and enjoy nature. Mars enters in Taurus on the 20th helping to be patient with those parts of life that take time to grow and build upon. The full moon lunar eclipse is on the 25th. This full moon packs a wallop of surprise if you are harboring any jealousy or secrets that you don’t want to be exposed. Open honesty is needed now, even if it means cutting off relationships that can’t handle who you really are.
Aries: (March 21- April 19) Happy Birthday Aries. With your ruling planet, Mars, in your sign for most of April, the urge to step forth and claim what you feel deep within is your birthright is strong. It is your birthday time and April is the month to start fresh. Throw out the old and make room for the new. The lunar eclipse dances between what you have and what others bring to you. New friends, lovers, or a different job can cross into your path. Pay attention to the inner voice within, the messages that you would rather ignore are the ones that will bring you the most growth.
Taurus: (April 20- May 20) The weeks leading up to your birthday are fruitful when you spend time in peaceful contemplation. When Venus, your ruling planet, moves into your sign on the 15th you will feel a subtle shift that life is beginning to move your way. The lunar eclipse on the 25th will reveal your deepest fears and desires. Do not be dismayed at the effort ahead, the road may be filled with curves yet the reward around the corner is worth the concentration necessary.
Gemini: (May 21-June 21) Laughter, joy and fun is the promise for you this month. Spend time with others that are quick to laugh and quicker to lend a helping hand or a different point of view. Sparks fly between friends who jump to conclusions or take offense at different opinions. Be the observer; you will be privy to details yet detached. Careful scrutiny of the play of words between others teaches you much about character and protecting ones reputation.
Cancer: (June 22- July 22) April begins with a heavy emphasis on work and your career. Step into your authority and stand up for what you know needs to be done. If you feel exhausted from too many responsibilities let your mind day dream and find time to spend on hobbies that bring you relaxation. As the month ends friends appear along with time to enjoy an afternoon together enjoying a mutual interest which brings comfort, pleasure and balance to life.
Leo: (July 23- August 22) April begins with five planets in fire putting plenty of fuel in your engine to roll ahead. When the drama of life pulls you towards seeing the negative remember how good life really is. You will be sharing your smile and heart with others to lift their spirits. An opportunity to get away for a day or more presents itself. Be open to new adventures that bring a shift in thinking and positive view on your life. Your happiness paves the way to new opportunity set to arrive soon.
Virgo: (August 23-September 22) April stirs deep emotions for you to explore. Be willing to go within and look at what bothers you. The answers are different than what appears to be true on the surface. Be ready to cry tears of frustration, shared agony, dread, relief, and joy. It is a time of cathartic relief. Towards the end of April you will be on a new journey whose road is steady and firm.
Libra: (September 23 – October 23). Life is beautiful. The divinity around you is apparent this month, with all of its complications, frustrations and challenges. Mars is opposite your sign ready to antagonize you like a pesky younger brother. If someone tells you ‘we have an issue’ realize it is only your issue or problem if you choose to let it be. It is not your role to make everyone happy. Honor what is right and just within. Continue to explore what you can learn or do to create a more prosperous and abundant world.
Scorpio: (October 24-November 21) This is an extremely important month for you as Mars, your ruling planet is in Aries the other sign that it rules. Effort put towards taking care of your body, mind, and spirit will pay off. You may feel the urge to recharge your routine with healthy exercise. Any activity that helps you feel better is good now. Cutting out bad habits, especially negative thinking will invigorate you. April is your month make significant changes and others will notice the results by the end of May.
Sagittarius: (November 22- December 21) The only thing between the way of the life you want and the life you have is you. Enthusiasm soars this month with that realization. No longer will you be your own worst enemy, you will see how and where you hold situations as excuses in the way of your dreams. The urge to follow your heart is so powerful that you may be running away from the moments of the day and escaping to the imagination of where you want to be. All things begin in thought, think well.
Capricorn: (December 22- January 19) Settle into the rumblings of the family dynamics this month. Perhaps there will be birthdays to remember, or other situations from family or friend that place the burden of expectation upon you. In spite of the outer world demands find a corner in your world that you can retreat to claim your space. Burn off the excess that is hanging around, whether it is emails to delete, papers to clear out or a few too many calories from your favorite foods.
Aquarius: (January 20 – February 18) Love, sparks, and sprinkles! Are you ready for a month of bantering back and forth? Your cell will light up with texts and messages galore. Being pulled into arguments will be easy if you are in the mood to test your debate skills. A better way to use this energy is to allow your mind to inspire and invent new ways of doing things. Getaway day trips to interesting destinations will dust the cobwebs of discontent away.
Pisces: (February 19 – March 20). Mercury is floating in your sign for the first two weeks of April; let your imagination run wild and dream of your ideal life. Pluto stations retrograde pressuring friendships. Some friends may be super busy and not able to spend time and others may reenter your life. The lunar eclipse exposes what you think and believe and what is true and when they are not the same. Pay attention to finances so you have an abundant cash flow that covers more than the necessities.
