Welcome to my astrology website.
Astrology has taught me many things, but perhaps the most valuable thing I’ve learned is about the power of timing. We all bloom at a different time; a rose is no less than a daffodil because it blooms later in the season. There is no right or wrong; our life is a journey that is constantly unfolding, not a series of events to be graded. What’s essential is to honor and respect our process and to treat ourselves with exquisite care no matter where we are in that journey or how long it takes. Astrology is a valuable tool that can help us understand our individual timing and how best to fulfill it.
Current Astrology Happenings
Sun and Moon are in fiery and freedom-loving Sagittarius; the sign of the gypsy, the pilgrim and the philosopher. The archer may not know the meaning of life but he or she knows there is a meaning and is on a quest to find it. Ruled by expansive Jupiter this adventurous sign seeks new frontiers; intellectual, physical and spiritual. “Expect the unexpected” Uranus in explosive Aries makes a positive and powerful trine to the Sun and Moon.

The Sun is in uncompromising Scorpio, master of the mysterious realms of the unconscious; ruled by Pluto, this edgy sign hungers for what is hidden secret, and taboo. Opposite is the Moon in down-to-earth Taurus ruled by provocative Venus; the sensual bull deals with the physical world and craves what is cozy, safe and secure. Scorpio thrives on chaos; Taurus loves calm yet we cannot have harmony unless we are willing to face what is difficult and dark. Read More
Just as there are “power places” in the world; sacred sites such as Stonehenge, Macho Piccho or the pyramids in Egypt, there are also power times during the year. Eclipses are one of these times. They are super potent full or new moons that herald major endings and beginnings and exert a powerful influence when they connect to a prominent place in the chart. Eclipses arrive in pairs in the form of a new moon (solar) eclipse or a full moon (lunar) eclipse that fall two weeks apart. They repeat themselves every 19 years. What were you dealing with 19 years ago; what is calling you now? On October 18 we had a Full Moon eclipse (Libra Sun and Aries Moon). November 3 is a New Moon eclipse at 11 degrees of Scorpio.
All Souls Day is dedicated to departed souls; it is said that on this night the dead visit the homes of the living. Traditionally candles are left burning and soul cakes are put out for them. In Mexico it is called the Day of the Dead. The Scorpio New Moon eclipse arrives the following day, a reminder that all beginnings contain an ending and within every ending is the seed of a new life. That is the theme of Scorpio which always involves a journey into the underworld (our unconscious), the source of both our darkness and our light.
Mercury Retrograde October 21 – November 10, 2013
Mercury goes retrograde (appearing to reverse its course) three or four times a year. Mercury is the planet of mental activity and language; it rules all forms of communication, information, and learning. During the retrograde period, communications can break down and typically problems arise with computers, faxes, and phones. Don’t be surprised if plans change suddenly and things get misplaced or disappear. Mercury also rules ground travel so when making plans, allow for delays and schedule in extra time. Read More
