May 15/16 Scorpio Full Moon Lunar Eclipse

Lunar Eclipse /Full Moon will occur on May 16th, Just after midnight here on the
East coast. At 25° Scorpio Moon/25 ° Taurus Sun.
Eclipse’s have a history of being
a wildcard, as the brightest
phase of the Moon disappears
temporarily. *Mars in Pisces
rules this Full Moon and is
conjunct Neptune together they
Trine the Scorpio Moon,
Increasing sensitivity and
strengthening our intuition.
This Scorpio Total Lunar Eclipse
is on the South Node, symbolic
of release, completion and
letting go. This signals a new
cycle to begin.
In the sign of Scorpio we get clues of what we need to release from our emotional
habits, feelings we hold on to,
triggers connected with the
past. Trying to save or hold on to
that familiar something- that
keeps us stuck in the past, is a
scenario worth looking at.
Creating a new feeling around
old issues would be good
Saturn work this weekend.
(Saturn=lessons learned
=maturity)

The Taurus Sun seeks to
simplify, slow down and release
tension, enjoying the present
moment.
Saturn in Aquarius squares both
Sun & Moon~ Saturn
reminds us that relationships &
work both need time and effort-
making responsible
adjustments so you can balance
the Scorpio/Taurus houses in
your chart.

Knowing your birth chart and contemplating where these energies are- help us unfold (peel the onion) and assist with personal growth,

Peace,

Jupiter transiting in Pisces, since last May, June & July and again December 29- May 10, 2022 , I discounted my services in light of the generous energy of Jupiter transit to my 7th house, conjoined my Natal Venus in Pisces! Which rules my clients! May 10th Jupiter enters fiery Aries, this is GO time with creative initiatives and enthusiasm.

April 29-30th 2022

Eclipse season is here, new
chapters can open through
beginnings and endings in the
Taurus/Scorpio house of our charts.
Eclipse’s work within the Nodal axis,
a New Moon occurring within 18
31′ of North or South Node can be
a partial Solar Eclipse.
April 30th 4:27 pm (EST) is Partial
Solar Eclipse on North Node of
Taurus at
10 °28′. New Moon’s start a new
lunation cycle, eclipse’s have a wild
card energy to them. Friday April
29th, changes are underway in the
evening when Mercury enters its
home sign of Gemini, our mental
focus becomes sharper.The Moon
leaves energized Aries and moves
into her exalted sign of Taurus,giving way towards a gracious mood.

The ruler of this New Moon/ Solar Eclipse is Venus in Pisces, she is exalted in her kind glory here, snuggled between elusive
Neptune and jubilant Jupiter in
Pisces. Tonight 8:51 pm Venus
conjoins Jupiter at 27 ° ~ and
sextile to stationing ( strong) Pluto
in Capricorn ~ also trine Mercury,
who freshly entered Gemini. (* note
Mercury is slowing down and will
Retrograde on May 11)
This energy feels very
opportunistic, as if the doors that
have been previously closed are
opening. The ruling Venus/Jupiter
vibration of this lunation can bring
surprise~ as Uranus in Taurus at 14
° conjunct New Moon/Solar Eclipse
-puts an exclamation on changes
that may include a feeling
excitement, creativity,productivity, c
onnection, natural, unexpected,
gifted, beneficial.

Alan Watts says it best:
“The only way to make sense out of
change is to plunge into, move with
it, and join the dance.”

Today the Moon in Aquarius makes
configurations to Saturn 23
Aquarius, Mercury 23 Taurus and
the Nodes of Moon~ 22 Taurus/
Scorpio. When the moon connects
with Saturn we can feel the weight
of responsibility or duty, a
necessary part of success
~ at this time Saturn squares the Nodes and
Mercury, suggesting memories and
past wisdom or lessons
experienced, that reminds us we
can reap benefits through
compassionate action. Saturn slows
things down to examine, Mercury in
Taurus is of a contemplative nature,
think it out -trust the high road
Speaking of high road…
Venus in Pisces is within range of
conjunctions to Neptune and
Jupiter in Pisces, these energies
have the ” Ganesh Energy”
bringing blessings through
creativity, cooperation, openness,
generosity and connection~ This
week trumpets a clear reminder
that you can be a great force for the
good.

Peace , Laura

March 2, 2022 New Moon in Pisces

March 2, 2022
Pisces New Moon
Conjunct Jupiter 12:34pm (est)
This New Moon symbolizes a
pause, a germination period of
creation. What is inspiring you? A
new beginning, a new month, a new
intention, a new insight, a new
understanding of what is possible?
Pisces creates with hope, love,
empathy, compassion,
understanding, and faith. Applying
to Jupiter in Pisces, we can ask for
miracles. Why not?? A leap in faith?
We can pray for Peace. Yes please.
During a New Moon, we plant seeds
of intention towards what we would
like to manifest and grow. Healing is
possible when the boundaries are
elusive, as they are in Pisces A
move through this period and send
prayers for what needs healing.

We have plenty of obligations and
responsibilities in this current
timeframe all answering to Saturn,
we know this timeframe is serious
business, we need to keep on the
program an do the diligent work.


But….Sun & Moon & Jupiter &
Neptune all in Pisces are singing
another tune.
All they are saying is give Peace a
chance

☮️

Peace

The Albatross is the largest flying
bird, with a wingspan of 11 feet,
they spend 80% of there time at
sea, mostly in flight. They can soar
on motionless wings for hours.
These birds mate for life yet there
journeys cover millions of miles.
chose this oracle card today from
Chip Richards deck (Secret
language of Animals) “The
inspiration is renewed hope and the
promise of good fortune for the
path ahead. It takes courage to set
out on a new journey of any kind
and Albatross knows that
sometimes we must travel far
beyond the shores of our comfort
zone before we catch a glimpse of
our aspired destination”

We all know Valentines Day can
come with high expectations, the
waxing Gibbous Moon in Leo, a time
of heightened emotions is building
to a Full Moon at 27 degrees Leo
on February 16.
Today the Moon Opposite Mercury
in last degree of Capricorn soon to
enter Aquarius.(4:54pm) Thinking
of the bigger picture, choose your
words with compassion and
kindness above all. Mercury in
Capricorn this morning is speaking
practically and less poetic. Mercury
in Aquarius tonight shifts into more
open minded dialogue.
Venus/ Mars conjunction in
Capricorn February 15, (and again
March 6 in Aquarius)
We have a serious opportunity of
getting real about building
something we love and believe in.

December 19- January 31st was the Venus Retrograde period, did you
make decisions that upgraded or
reorganized your relationships or
finances? In the background Pluto
in Capricorn trine the North Node
Taurus, feels like Albatross
medicine, endurance and courage
to take a leap of faith. February 17
Jupiter in Pisces sextile Uranus in
Taurus encounter a similar energy
of unexpected opportunities or
changes that entice you to keep
moving towards your goals.

Happy Valentine’s Day 💜 Be kind

February 1,2022 EST New Moon in Aquarius /Chinese New Year of the Water Tiger

Happy Chinese Lunar New Year!

The Tiger is the 3rd sign of the
Chinese horoscope, Yang in
nature ~ with following
energies; Bravery,
magnetism,good luck, authority,
swagger, hotheadedness,
disobedience and passion.
Naturally built for change and movement, within the water element of emotion and depth. May we draw on the courage of the sentimental yet powerful tiger energies.

The New Moon exact just
after midnight(EST) describes
the shift as Moon & Sun in
Aquarius apply to Saturn to
begin this new cycle with a
seriousness of intention and
taking responsibility for a reset.
Saturn rules this Aquarian New
Moon, doubled up on the sense of taking responsibility.
The Moon & Sun in a separating
square to Uranus Taurus ~ this
new cycle has built in changes
on how we see the future.
Aquarius is future minded and
looks to operate with an original
or inventive plan, opening the
window to fresh air.
This Thursday 2/3 Mercury
stations direct in Capricorn as the Sun in Aquarius conjoins
Saturn~ May this offer support,
strength, resolution, durability
and security moving forward , as all planets are now in a direct motion until beginning of May.

Peace,

Scorpio Last Quarter Moon


Today marks the closing square of
the lunation cycle, we are between
the Past Full moon ( fulfillment) 1/17
and the future New Moon (new
beginnings) 2/1.
Is it time to move forward and take
action? Or is it time to refrain, resist
or release ?
Both questions can come to mind
with the square aspect of Sun
(Aquarius) and Moon (Scorpio)
The dark half of the moon cycle,
diminishing in light
is compatible with Scorpio energy,
they understand the territory, quiet
and observant. Self contained and
inwardly absorbed.

Steven Forrest in his Book of the Moon, describes the mood as “expectant, abstract, mysterious,
self contained, archetypal, spiritual,
principled, idealistic, introverted,
independent and visionary.”
The Scorpio Moon will have
numerous aspects flavoring it’s
mood, this morning trine Jupiter in
Pisces ~ can intuition meet
opportunity? The Moon opposition
to Uranus, square Saturn and
sextile Venus~ patience and
understanding is key, changes or
detours can be maneuvered or
endured with researching the map-
Scorpio Moon has detective energy.
Mercury Rx backs into Capricorn
making a practical trine to North
Node in Taurus and sextile South
node in Scorpio. Where can you
invite peacemaking and release
conflict? Mercury stations direct February 3rd, so we are still in process of reworking & upgrading those ( Saturn ruled) Aquarius & Capricorn areas in our charts.

Peace,

Keep your head up !

Today take responsibility of your
situation, whatever that may be.
Aquarius Sun & Saturn respond well
to decisions based on what’s
happening now. Mars ingress into
Capricorn, out of bounds can
accentuate that -take charge urge.
Empowering energy.
Mars is exalted and no nonsense in
Capricorn, may this help you tackle
tasks with energy.Venus still
Retrograde in Capricorn is slowing
down, finishing her 40 days cycle
on January 29~ remembering and
recognizing, what it is she really
values. Trine Uranus in Taurus, she
can feel bolts of enthusiasm, she’s
going through a metamorphosis
into a morning
star.

Reminder for folks in NorthEast we
have 54 days till spring & days are
getting longer~ We can use the last
bit of Mercury in Aquarius to
rethink the future and put new
ideas out to the world. Happy Monday.

Peace,

Laura
