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.”

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

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.

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,

Laura

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,

Aquarius Season Jan 20-Feb19

Happy Birthday Aquarians ☀️
Jan 20-Feb 19th
We are getting close to Chinese
Lunar New Year of the Water Tiger
February 1,2022
The early am Moon in Virgo makes
quick trines to Venus Retrograde in
Capricorn and to Uranus direct now
in Taurus, I think back to July.
Remembering the beauty and color
of my garden and how I cherished
all the flowers I grew & sold. I dried
and made this Mandala on August
22nd Full Moon in Aquarius
conjunct Jupiter in Aquarius~
inspired memories. Mercury
Retrograde in Aquarius is revisiting ideas,
memories, messages related to
your Aquarian house, backing up to conjoin the Sun on January 23rd.

New thoughts or realizations could
upgrade our understanding this
weekend. Venus Retrograde in
Capricorn is slowing down and
will be at 11 ° for 2 weeks, she
stations direct January 29th.
During this time she stays in
close Trine aspect to Uranus in
Taurus. Venus is operating on a
practical level, considering what
is worth her time. In Capricorn
she values stability and
patience with connections.

Venus in close communication
with Uranus, acknowledges
changes or surprises connected
to our relationship, finances or
what we value. Thinking about
where we’ve been and how we
are moving forward can be an
inspiration today, we are beginning a New Chapter. ☀️

“Set peace of mind
as your highest
goal, and organize
your life around it.”


The Nodal Axis of the Moon
today starts a new chapter in
Taurus/Scorpio. For the last 18
months since May 5,2020
Gemini/Sagittarius Nodal Axis
has fluctuated back and forth
with information,
communication, and
broadcasting lots of ideas.What
do we believe vs. what others
believe? Many questions with
numerous answers, that is the
nature of Gemini and
Sagittarius. The student and the teacher.

What a learning
experience it has been A
Taurus/Scorpio relates to
growth and
transformation.

South Node Scorpio can assist in healing
by decreasing the intensity
levels when possible. The depth
of Scorpio is looking at the truth
and tapping into our faith.
Taurus North Node can assist by
increasing the grounded earth
energy, found in simple routines,
slowing down the pace to
encourage a sense of calm.
Choosing roads that support
our sense of serenity and
tranquility. Can we strive to
pacify those hurried areas that
we have needed to down shift
from? The highly cerebral
energy of Gemini/Sagittarius
Nodes are shifting today m G
The Capricorn Sun 28 ° is trine
the North Node Taurus and sextile
South Node Scorpio symbolizing a
positive new chapter opening
up this week.

Uranus the planet of awakening and
breakthrough in Taurus can
stimulate the senses from a stuck
place, moving slowly but surely into
the new chapter.

January 17, 2022 Full Moon ♋️ Cancer

Cancer Full Moon
27 ° 50
6:49 PM EST
Cancer Moon opposite
Capricorn Sun conjunct Pluto.
Cancer and Capricorn are
learning how to balance the
need to care for ourselves
(Cancer/moon/emotions) and
the duty to care for others
(Capricorn /Saturn/boundaries)
The Full Moon is dignified in
Cancer, she accentuates the
need to express emotional
energy.
These Cardinal signs take
responsibility of meeting those
fundamental & emotional needs,
they take action. Pluto conjunct
Capricorn Sun -serious about
the renewal or modification of
energy, doing practical tasks,
taking care of personal business and empowering ourselves in a
way that is nurturing and
renewing. Take responsibility for your overall
health, mental, physical &
spiritual. When we take care
of ourselves first, we have a
stronger foundation to care for
others.
“When you are kind to others, it
not only changes you, it changes
the world” * found this quote on
a Kindness Rock!

January 15,1929
Atlanta, Georgia
Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius at
10 degrees currently is conjunct
Martin Luther King Jr natal
placement of Mercury direct
Aquarius 11 degrees in his 10th
House of Career. This is the most
visible area of the chart.
Communicating his ideas of
nonviolent activism in the civil
rights movement, which protested
racial discrimination was his
communication with humanity.
Aquarius symbolizes rebelling
against old traditional ideas and
sharing original thoughts and ideas
with groups, in his chart he shared
his mind & heart with the world.
“Darkness cannot drive out
darkness, only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate, only
love can do that.” MLK
Today as we embark on Mercury
Retrograde in Aquarius,
remembering how to think outside
of the box, outside of the norm. Y
Moon moves into Cancer later this
afternoon which Trines Jupiter in
Pisces.The moon is in her home
sign of Cancer, waxing gibbous
phase and out of bounds – this
gives an extra dose of emotion &
light to the conversation with
Jupiter in Pisces . Counting our
blessings, nurturing loved ones and
remembering the peaceful words of
Martin Luther King Jr.
