How to grow your Garden-Holiday style
The season is upon us. I am speaking of the season of decay (making new space) that happens before birth. Its a cycle and its always going on 24/7. We are always undergoing some level of it, or witnessing it, or feeling the tides change. Sometimes this cycle is scary before its exciting. The scary part is when we are not quite sure how and WHEN the refreshing reinvented self will emerge. Let's discuss the process of "becoming new again"............in a cosmic garden sort of way.
It is the end of a heck of a year on planet earth! The perfect time to spend a bit of pondering on what changed. Make a choice on how to position yourself in the picture of your life, so that you're excited about 2019.
Currently, and all of December, Mars, the planet of strut my stuff, is in Pisces. Its not especially strong there. Every sign has a strength to it though, and this placement is good for dreaming up a plan. The emphasis is on the dream part, not the plan.
First you have to have a vision to manifest before you get to the building part. It is the holiday season, so even if the world says you have to rush about -you don't.
HOLIDAY. YOU are on HOLIDAY.
Use the time to truly give yourself the gift of settling down with YOU. Spending some time with yourself in contemplation and use the imagination to create in your world of dreams, the life you want to live in 2019.
Everything begins with an idea. It can change along the way (and it will- no doubt). Start with-"what are my dreams?" Not what everyone else wants for you- what you - REALLY WANT FOR YOU. This is Pisces at its best. That is why some of the most inspiring novelists, dancers, musicians, painters, etc. spend time alone. To allow the creative concepts to emerge. That same creative is the inner voice speaking in your thought consciousness (head space) to bring forth a birthing for you.
This is true no matter what you want to do with your time on earth. It is not limited to "creative" paths in the sense of artistic expression, but it is the same creative voice-inspiration, that makes the choice to be a lawyer or a poet. Every path in life can have a dash of creative to it ! Even Math. Astrology is very mathematical. As I think on it, just about everything we do has math at its core.
So we can use the cycle of astrology to see how to go about getting our boot straps tied and fit for climbing when we are in a introspective cycle, and how to make the best use of riding the wave when we are on top. Everything in between is either slowly going south, or slowly going north. We do have times of relaxation, where we are just simply happy where we are.
The intersection of critical change is what I am speaking of now. 2019 is a year of preparation for huge change, as the future Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto conjunction in Capricorn moves toward unification- in 2020. Now, is the time to prepare your course map, and that starts internally. So, allow your dream time in waking time too.
Every garden needs certain actions to grow. It needs HEAT, (or HOTNESS), seeds (ideas), water (nourishment), some good earth (grounding), and now and then fertilizer. We are the same, and right now- we have the water going- with Mars in Pisces, and Neptune there too, heat is provided by the planet Jupiter in the fire sign Sagittarius, (for 12 months), Saturn and Pluto are in the earth sign Capricorn helping us to set up good foundations and guidelines. You have your helpers, you just need to do the work.
Venus is in Scorpio all of December, and this placement can help you to let go of what is already gone. Decay is a valid phase in life just as any other phase. It can be more painful, but to hang on to a piece of fruit that no longer gives you any vitamin C is a problem. Throw it out. Clean out the drawers in your head, and in your life. This is the time to make space! It is part of the process to birthing the new.
There will be times this month that doing a dance of danger will be good for you. That's when Venus and Mars do the tango around the 17th- 31st. Both planets are in water signs, a bit wide, but close enough to enjoy each other, especially if its forbidden. Spice up your fun. Dress dangerously attractive, and for goddess sake spurge on some new shoes and go dancing! Have a foot massage, go to the late night party, just don't drink and drive!
On the 22nd Mercury will line up with Jupiter. Keep the wallet at home, because your going to be overcome with the urge to spend, as if it were never going to have to be paid for! Sagittarius is known for promising more than it can deliver (signing too many times!) and both Mercury and Jupiter are in the fire sign- bringing a bit of over the top energy. Use it instead to send out a lot of New Year's Wishes in the form of cards, (snail mail- keep the post office alive) and jokes at the office party. This is a great aspect for comedy writers, so flow until the ink runs dry, which won't be until after the New Year.
Winter Solstice this year is on the 21st @ 2:23 pm PST, followed by a full moon the next day at zero Cancer. WOW-Z energy. The last weekend of the year is sure to be remembered as full of feeling and with strong story telling memories. Food will be a center piece and THE FAMILY takes a new traditional path. The year of the female is almost here (2019) and she's going to really do some gardening! The weeds have to go! No room! She's planting the food that feeds - all.
Get ready for the feast of the feminine, her birth is imminent. She will arrive on the scene in a hot feisty manner. Surely to surprise all with her power of getting things done! So, you see, by going inward and inviting yourself to be free of boundaries that you have known too long, (male or female) you are allowing for true motivation from the heart to lead you and pave the way for real growth.
Mars enters Aries on the last day of the year. Very symbolic that the first sign of the Zodiac is in take charge Mars as the clock turns to 2019. Foretells of a HOT 2019, perfect condition for the horticulturalists to have a solid harvest right when it is needed.
May you have enough and then some in 2019.

Full Moon half sun
It is with great effort this blog is being written. Today, on the eve of the most important elections in my lifetime, the internet has gone down on my broadband. Earthlink has a relationship with AT&T. so... since AT&T has gone into some sort of "problem"...since FRIDAY... no internet...for perhaps 24-48 hrs. YES.
I found a way to link up with everything including photos that really display what the elections are about.
Not surprised that an electric fiasco has occurred, because Uranus will return to Aries tomorrow. And the nodes (fate) will enter Cancer from Leo (they move backwards always)...but the timing of an outage that is to last right into the election has my eyebrows raised. Yeah.
But, like me- with my phone tethering to hot spot, and a laptop- we SHALL PREVAIL to get information out! I feel like I am an astro-reporter in a war zone trying to get out vital star science to the masses that care. So many do. Once upon a time, we in America didn't doubt that "the parties" could work together. Now, all I want you to know, is that this election will determine how clean the air is, how protected your food from poison is, keeping a free press, not having schools, places of worship, concert halls, yoga studios, etc. be a war zone. And then there is Gerrymandering. Look it up. It will determine a great deal of the future. Governor races are super important right now. So lets get to the astro:
This is what is going down in the next 48 hrs...
1. Uranus re-enters fire sign Aries (LEADER) stays there for the next four months. It will oppose the current Venus Retrograde position in Libra. Everything can change in an INSTANT. From who is hot in your eyes, the art world, the stock markets, and who is also worth going to war over. For a short while Mars in Aquarius will be sextile to Uranus...the collective is FIRED UP.
2. The Nodes of the Moon- (north and south) where you are headed where you've been- are moving into the sign of Cancer/Capricorn. THE FEMALE is THE FUTURE. And that future starts with this election. We will see RECORD females holding high office. The energy also makes everyone much more concerned over food supplies (YEMEN) and what security is -actually. Is having a roof over your head a security issue to you, or are you more concern about your profits? If you can't afford housing very little else gets taken care of. The world will be re-examining the meaning of having an address to be allowed to VOTE. The planet Uranus will square this point- that means- the fight has just geared up a bit. Do you think the MALES who aren't evolved will give up that toxic male ego without a fight? Some people never ever got taught that we are spirit first. We will have to help them go past the limited thinking process. Jupiter is going to help. Jupiter= Knowledge. Jupiter is currently TRINE to the new node placement. But only for about three days. We'll take it. (who is we you ask? the progressive voting people).
3. Jupiter is @29 Scorpio. Thus, the stinger is out. Jupiter is triggering the Total Solar Eclipse of Aug. 2017. Remember that one? The one that split America in half? Where an eclipse falls is where the action is. For a while, and certainly when a planet triggers it by degree. Jupiter is square the TSE point. Jupiter rules justice, the law, truth, universities, foreign places/travel. ALL of these will be in the news. History is happening all over the world right now. Relationships are being pushed to the limit. FYI - Scorpio at 29 is "take no prisoners" kind of vibration. What goes down now, will last, for a long time. It will have repercussions that you can't possibly see, unless your vision is to the core of the earth.
Russia is a very Scorpio country. Likely very busy right now trying to macro-micro manage "things". (like voting machines). The Orange Slime has Mars at 29 degrees Leo. His Ascendant is there too. This gives me an idea that the elections won't be to his liking. He doesn't like to lose.
On a personal note- think back to Aug 2017 and where 29 Leo fell in your chart. If you don't know, get a reading via a good astrologer and find out what area you need to be paying attention to. This triggering of the TSE means big big change. An end is coming. Its possible the end has been in process and is just now being faced. THIS is not easy energy to deal with if it opposes or conjuncts or squares an important planet in your chart. Take care to get enough rest. Take care of your heart, back, and reputation. Call on your deep soulful resources- and stay focused on what is IMPORTANT in your life. Do you best not to work against your own self. Let what goes, go. Try not to hang on to
things or people if they wish to be set free. This is a cross roads in life.
4. There is a new moon on the 8th @ 16 Scorpio. This shows that NEW is here- now. I have deep faith that the NM in a trine to Neptune will bring up renewed hope in being able to rise above the stink that has invaded the whore house. (yes, that is what it is now). We will find a way. Normally I am not so blunt in my astrology writings. However the last 3 years have made tip toeing around the obvious impossible for me now. America has been sold to the highest bidder. It is now viewed as a corporation, not a country. It has been hi-jacked by fake Christians- who voted for the anti-christ that they have been fearing for thousands of years. When kids and babies are locked up and when those who seek safe shelter are given the go-ahead to be shot if they throw a stone-is the rule, christ's teachings are NOT in play, Hitler is. I thought we got rid of that energy- clearly we have not. BUT WE WILL.
5. Nov 16th is the next most important date! Venus goes direct, and Mercury goes retrograde! Its good if you want to redo- words. Its going to make the holidays (Thanksgiving) a musical chair sort of event. I wouldn't ink in any plans right now. The Stock Market might calm down though.
6. Jupiter enters Sagittarius for one year. On Nov 8th the fat planet enters the sign of can I do more, eat more, have more, travel more, but hey within the law! Jupiter is very happy here. We need some happiness. We need good will for all to return. Perhaps Jupiter will - bring some Santa to you and me. It will be a great time to continue your studies, or start them. Where are you aiming your arrow? Hit the mark! Exercise can be fun again. Learn a new language. Befriend someone different than you. Put love back into your faith.
7. Mars will trigger the Total Solar Eclipse point of Aug 2017 ! (two time this month-first Jupiter, then Mars!) From the 10th- until the 16th are super sensitive days. This is a PSA- earthquake warning. Temper warning. And its also going to usher in the collective wishes. Go Humanity!!
8. Neptune goes direct on Nov 24th. No more hidden lies.
Wishing you all a Healthy Thanksgiving.
Let your light shine. One for all and all for one.

Times are going to get stranger.
Venus in Scorpio turned retrograde this am. She's going inward for forty-days and Forty nights. When the love planet is in the passionate sign- that loves secrets, exotic times, and is very resourceful at finding the soul -we can have hope for Senator Collins who just sold out for money. She has time now to reflect on how she turned her back on Women. Venus is retrograde- so the key word can be: BETRAYAL. And the discovery of what you actually desire at all cost. And what it will cost you.
The #MeToo movement has just begun. It will go underground and gain strength. One thing that can't be dis-guarded is the women who will find their voice, and go to the polls, become a name on the ballot, and try to lift the energy of the miserable toxic male to a higher state of awareness. To lift humanity to remember that LOVE- DEEP REAL LOVE- is the destiny, not gold. Not lust. Not power. Sometimes you have to seek all those things to realize how empty they really are. They will never lead you to the path of oneness. Only more separation and more craving. Junk food is addictive.
Venus also rules resources. So during its retrograde be sure to guard yours. Discover what it is that truly has DEEP meaning for you. Be brave and touch on truths that give you steel-iron- strength. Face loss head on. Grieve full throttle, and know that this time in your life and in history will change like a stream to a river and make you stronger and taller than you ever thought possible.
Many people (not just women) are looking inward to their wounds to forge a tool of power. To become the maverick you were destined to become sometimes you have to dive into bottomless emotional waters to reclaim your essence. Sometimes it gets ugly and seems to have no light. But the light is there. Waiting for you. You will arrive.
Use this Venus in Scorpio energy to create something from the ashes. Scorpio isn't interested in shades of gray, so use the remains of your awakened but changed heart to manifest a distinct unmistakable statement. To carve a new authentic path.
Retrograde periods always bring elements from the PAST to the front door. Look before you open. Secure your stance. Be prepared to dissolve from your old ways. Melt- down into a new you. This isn't easy, but can be trans-formative and give you a view/vision you never had before.
During this phase the markets will be a bit crazy. Prepare your psyche. Tune in to your ALL-KNOWING-SELF. Its inside.
Venus will be in Scorpio until Noon on HALLOWEEN. That day she's re-enters back to Libra. She will remain in Libra until Dec 2nd. So during the Libra phase it will be a bit lighter in energy. More intellectual towards love and values. Costumes will be both dark, and Cinderella, depending on which energy (Scorpio or Libra) you link with....or for fun combine them both!
Nov 16th the she planet will turn Direct. All plans get the green light now.
We are going to see some very strong female energy in the next three months. Like never before. It will be a force to be reckoned with. Words will not satisfy- only ACTIONS.
This is a challenging time for the rights of women. But I have no doubt who will be standing (and sitting) at the end of it all. And any seat confirmations that occur now -will be subject to upheaval in the future. Better eat fast if you sit at a unwelcome dinner table- because you will be ousted the second your bad table manners show.
Venus is also in a tense relationship with Mars in Aquarius all of October. Men and Women will have grave difficulty seeing eye to eye. This aspect stokes the "passion" and attractions will be based on lust and also dislike. Taming of the Shrewd comes to mind. But she won't be tamed. It is odd how you can feel disdain and sexual attraction at the same time- but you can. War in the bedrooms will be sometime "play-acting" other times- real.
Its interesting that as this aspect perfects- this is playing out in all over our world. What is horse-play vs rape? When is it not a game anymore but an intrusion? The seat conformation of Kavanaugh is completely mirroring this aspect. 100 percent! Venus in Scorpio is VASTLY stronger than Mars in Aquarius. You can come to your own conclusions how this chess game will end.
On the 8th there is a New Moon at 16 Libra. Try to make some harmony in your world. Team up with like-minded souls. Spend time in joy. See where you do agree and focus on that. Its far to easy right now to just see differences. Seek out the win-win situations in your world.
On the 9th Mercury stalks into Scorpio. Sherlock is on it.
Jupiter is in Scorpio for just one more month. Scorpios you must SEIZE the moment! It will not return for twelve years! What way do you wish to relate differently? What shore do you need to swim to now? Get busy plotting towards it- time is flying! Invest in yourself-in your higher self.
There is no mountain that can't be climbed when you have one pointed focus.
As the truth of - "wherever you go, there you are" rings out, determine for yourself to reach the highest view possible!

Life as Roses
Somehow, it's the end of August already! Summer has sped past so fast, I didn't even notice that I missed posting in July. Perhaps it was the three eclipses tying up my energy. July and early August were choked full of needed change, creative surplus, and redefining goals. I hope that the last two months have been fruitful.
The eclipse season has passed, but its never over! Those three eclipses- (20 degrees Cancer-solar, 5 degrees Aquarius-lunar, and 19 degrees Leo- Solar) will be activated at various times throughout the year, bringing to you change, if they triggered your birth map. They will continue to affect the USA in varied of ways, mainly our leadership and issues of housing and food supplies that aren't contaminated with pesticides. Continue to shore up your family relations (not always birth!), and make choices that give you security. Flourish your every day with some playtime, and explore your creative energy. Be kind to yourself and others. We are all children of the source. The sun gives to all (if you live in southern California all year!).
So, here we are on the day of a GRAND TRINE IN EARTH! The energy is practical and innovative at the same time. Even though the aspect is exact today, you can use this steadfast plow for the rest of the summer season. The time is RIPE for planting a new garden, one that can produce a sweet scent, have longevity, AND be a bit experimental to you. Strengthen your resume with some new elements. Walk down an unknown path and see what you discover along the way. Feed not just your body, but your soul too. Make decisions that support improvements in your life. The Sun in Virgo wants to make you the best you can be, and will shine a light on the areas that can be worked on now. So wherever Virgo is in your chart, focus on that house and the opposing one.
On the 26th we have a full moon in Pisces at 4 degrees. This is a time to balance both reality and imagination. Don't stay in a fantasy world and especially if none of the dreams are coming true! It is time to be honest with yourself about "wishful thinking". Yes, its true that every single thought must find a target, but make sure the aim is in your eyesight at best, and even possible at least. Use the full moon to rid blocks in the way of your desires and dreams. If you want to paint, and you don't have access to paint supplies, then how do you expect to get your work in a gallery? That is what I am talking about, don't keep empty dreams. Learn to work with what is at hand and manifest bit by bit. Why is it that everyone thinks they will "sell the screenplay for millions" but they never try to just put on a production at the local community theatre first? Grand is only great when the steps are solid. Build those steps!
And the cosmos will help you concentrate on what actions come first for you- starting on the 27th. The planet that rules how we go about getting things done, (Mars) will station direct on that date. It will march forward in Capricorn, and soon re-enter Aquarius. The months it has been retrograde have given much space for contemplation of where and what you need to progress in life. Often a stroll down memory lane helps us understand who we once were, and what we NOW want to be.
As Mars moves direct it will square Venus (on the 8th of Sept) and mismatched desires could take place within partnerships and also in the area of authoritarian people in your life. Venus wants harmony, and often at all costs, but the asking price might be a bit too much on this day! Boxing match could take place and the odds are on either winning! Both Venus in Libra, and Mars in Capricorn are super strong placements.... If you have to do battle, come prepared.
A few days before (on the 6th) Saturn will station direct and having a full force understanding of "the laws" (universal or legal) will give you an advantage. Those that think that they can sneak around them will be sorely disappointed. It is always better to take the high road and play fair, because at one point dishonesty or covert behavior WILL be found out. That's a given with Saturn in Capricorn.
There is a lovey and refreshing New Moon on the 9th in Virgo at 17 degrees, which is all powerful because of its relationship to both Jupiter (where CAN I travel now?) and Pluto (how transformed I have become!). It favors you truly embracing a stronger, broader, and STABLE path. This is a time when the vision can clearly be seen and the drive is there to structure your life in a way that until now hasn't seen the light of day. This is the start of my life as "a bed of roses" can seem in reach!
Maybe you've been struggling with something and the solution finally presents itself. Or perhaps the support system is in place and your skills are ready to be put to test. One thing can lead to another and so I say do not be shy, extend your fences, even knock them down!
On the 9th Venus will enter mysterious Scorpio, so be adventurous in love. This year Venus will go retrograde in Scorpio in October, so love's going to take a tantalizing ride if you allow it. Venus in Scorpio is always ready to go where no angels tread......and certainly she's not one for dual love, (casual) so make your intentions CLEAR at this start of any new 'relations'. This is also an excellent time to do research. Let's hope it's not hiring a private detective kind!
Yes, life can be a bed of roses, just make sure the thorns are gone before you lay down.
Friday, June 22, 2018
Seems as if life in America is unraveling. We are now in Summer, and the lazy carefree days of this season do not quite fit that description. We just entered the zodiac sign Cancer for the next month. The benefits of cancer energy are a more caring country. Currently, babies and young children are being held in prisons in the hot desert of Texas. What crime did they commit? They came with their parents to pursue a better life. Having escaped one horror to find another. Seeking asylum is not a crime in this country unless you are uneducated about our constitution. The sitting president is. I doubt if he has ever even read it.
So, as our country's leader insults our allies, makes friends with a murderous dictator, attempts to start a trade war, makes his main goal profiteering from his position in office, leaves the UN human rights council, the unraveling of how we are viewed by the world is seen everywhere and felt everywhere. What on earth is going on?
Astrologically, we are in a tense Venus opposition to Mars and the nodes are involved. The nodes are not planets, they are points that show the crossroads in the sky. The North node shows what we are to reach for. The south node shows the past. The north node is in the same sign as Venus, the south node the same as Mars. So 'acting out' as we always have with force is happening. Only this time it is being met with HUGE resistance. America is also in her Nodal RETURN. This sets the tone for the next 18.5 years of how we need to grow in leadership.
WE NEED TO GROW TOWARD LOVE.
We, as a country, have an opportunity to outgrow bad habits. To replace fear with trust. Action is manifested in the chart by Mars. It shows 'how' we go about getting things done. Mars is currently in Aquarius and will be all summer long. It turns retrograde on the 26th of June until Aug. Time to 'redo' our ways of keeping safe, getting a job done, expressing our strengths, and showing our 'yang' side. We can do it in a more compassionate, brotherly love way. Both personally and as a country. The current climate isn't going to change unless hearts change. You can not force people to care, but you can through outreach, bring people in touch with other cultures, other races so that they learn like little children- that we are all human- all loved by divine.
There is nothing "CHRISTIAN" about keeping babies in camps.
This is a distortion of Neptune. Neptune is also retrograde- so do a check up on how you are walking your talk. Look for spots of denial. Are you acting out of truth or fear, or even FEAR OF THE TRUTH. There is a lot of screaming about 'fake news'....but I see a lot of denial about what is happening. Its looking like Germany 1930 in America 2018.
This is the time to really look in the mirror and see what you support. And get active with grassroots groups and the collective energy to stop this downward spiral before its too late.
Yes, AMERICA is divided. Pick up the threads and make a blanket of comfort.

Basketball in the Lemon tree
Been feeling a bit on edge? You are not alone. Things not quite landing where you intended them? You are not alone. Not sure which direction to go in? Hold tight, soon the path will be lit up in techno color Dali style. Symbolism will take on new meanings. Color never looked so wild and abstract art makes a comeback....why?
We are on the verge of Uranus, the way shower, flying into the sign of Taurus for the first time in eighty-four years! This will take place on the 15th of May, @ 8:16:40 AM PDT. Uranus entering the Bull sign, will mean that bitcoin is here for much longer than you think because Taurus rules money, and Uranus is 'different' so a new currency entering into our system is appropriate. Taurus also reigns over art, and what sells will be changing. Taurus by its nature is a conservative sign. A loyal sign, that doesn't particularly embrace change. Uranus is never sitting still, so change is its M.O. and the more outside the box the better. Travel on new paths, new airways says Uranus. So when the conservative sign enters a non-conformist planet, things get out there but with structures intact. For example, you get married, but don't live in the same house. Make traditional art but sell it online. Plant a garden of exotic shapes and colors. Date someone vastly different from you.
The last time Uranus was in Taurus, Hitler was coming to power. Take note. Take a stand against even the most remote vibration of this! Speak out now while you can. Yes, history can repeat itself, lets make sure it doesn't.
Uranus rules 'freedom' and it will be redefined in the next seven years. It also rules earthquakes, and Taurus is an earth sign- the earth will move and shake a lot in the next few months, and up to seven years when the hard aspects come up. We have one coming up right as it enters Taurus.....on the 16th of May, Mars will square Uranus! This week of May 14th is loaded with energy to change your world. Mars and Uranus square off- as tensions build with Iran. Not a good thing. The placement of Mars is in Aquarius, in of itself indicates quakes can increase when it squares the earthquake planet the odds build. There are many many ways that a 'quake' can enter your world. This is the vibe I am speaking of that gives us a pent-up feeling that change is coming but we aren't sure which direction it's going to come from. Bolt yourself down to what grounds you. Working with the earth - is a good thing to do now. Back up your computer and techno devices. Cyber war fare is as real as gun fire. Banking will be especially prone to scams and cyber attacks while Uranus is in Taurus. In Nov. we will get another blast of Uranus in Aries (during the retrograde phase). This will last until Spring of 2019. Then Uranus will once again enter the sign of Taurus. People born with Taurus at the early degrees of 0-3 will have a preview of just how changing life can be! A dress rehearsal of sorts.
Friendship in love is favored. Take your time. Real doesn't have to rush, yet, plenty people will. I'd spend much time in the garden and wait and see if the seeds are really going to germinate into flowers. Share meals. Gourmet. Go to the Opera. See Art. Share cultural events together. Give it time to turn to sparkle that has no burnout.
Things might not land where you think they were, or should. Maybe that's ok. Blessings come in strange designs if you open your mind.
There is a new moon on the 15th and its at 25 Taurus. Another layer of let's start new and let it be real. This new moon is trine (easy support) to Pluto. The deeper you dig, the longer the roots and a long life is promised. It's more important to do something slow, and with quality now.
On May 25th a wondrous trine between expanded Jupiter and dreamy Neptune in the water signs. This is surely magical thinking. Make music, write poetry, create anything that brings you to the zone of peace and upliftment. Jupiter is in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces so you could find comfort in 'the art of the masters'- so visit your local museum and throw some money at them in support. This combo also is about prayer, meditation, and positive belief. So do some of that too!
The ARTS stay alive as long as we support them and make it know that they hold a high place in our values. Life without color, music, film, dance, etc would be dreary. So get about and take a class or just get your body moving to the higher realms of consciousness. The world needs this now.
Please take note of the photo above and be forewarned about the folly and fun of landing where you thought you wouldn't.

Venus has entered Taurus! She loves being there. Such a way with expressing love she has in this sign. The earth mother really comes out in all of us if we allow it to. Taurus likes the finer things in life, such as silk, comforts of good RICH foods, and fab art, and a golden voice. So we can invite into our lives, a bit of pleasure in the joys of indulgence for a few weeks.
Affection, blowing kisses, and romantic love; the eyes will be looking for it! Venus lined up with Uranus on the 28th of March, and that is a love at first bite aspect. The climate is ripe for sudden falling in to smittenville.......That line up happened in the last degrees of Aries...and the new moon on April 15th will be at that same degree! This means a promise to research further ~love possibilities.
But it's not limited to love, Venus and Uranus together throw open the door of "out there" and progressive creative energy. Even though the aspect happened the last week in March, the New Moon in April is the trigger date. So pay attention to what comes to you mid- April. Don't fret about taxes - as at least Mercury will be direct by their due date! The messenger turns direct on the 15th too! (taxes are due by the 17th - I'd wait until the 17th!)
Other exciting news in April is that on the 2nd, Mars in Capricorn will lock up with Saturn! NO SMALL DEAL. Heels get dug in. Saturn rules - RULES, and Mars just runs over everything in its way, so some rebel energy is happening in America. By the 22nd Mars will be hanging with Pluto. I'd like to keep it positive- but Mars and Pluto usually mean - WAR. Let's hope that some of the higher vibrations are manifested - and the war is done within the self, digging out the bad stuff - such as power trips, and ego over load.
Saturn turns retrograde on April 17th- so we will likely see the General (Kelly) leave Washington. As a matter of fact, there might not be anyone left there by the end of the month! Or at least the shake up will continue. More drama.
We have a blend of Aries and Earth energy for most of April- that is good for building a fire that keeps you warm. Best way to do that is to ground yourself in reality. What is the truth about your life right now that you are happy with? Add to that. Look around and find the goodness that is there. Plant a garden. Go out in nature and listen to the birds. Sometimes the simple things in life are forgotten and they are really what helps us through strange unbalanced times.
You have to train the mind to find the inner light. This light only is noticed in silence. So give yourself the gift of LISTENING to the inner voice, then, you will manage no matter what the astrological weather is. This inner voice is sometimes called the "cosmic eye". It's seeing what isn't seen with the iris. Its the eye between your brows, that is the REAL seeing. Times like we are in, require that you see with this eye. Its the all knowing energy that makes the life full and happy in spite of troubles. WE all have karma to pay off, but by triggering open your cosmic eye- you'll find where the green lights are and fly forward!
Meditation is a great form to develop the inner eye. So is any discipline that requires undiluted focus. Spend some time researching this for yourself while Mercury is still retrograde. Discover for yourself if it is true or not.
Mid- Month when Mercury turns direct, all systems will be saying- GO! NOW!.... and it will be time to certainly experiment with new path, new ways of seeing, and a make over for yourself.
So, look around and find the joy, look inside and find your wisdom. Look everywhere ! Leave no sight unseen or untried this month. Its a month that screams- EXPLORE! But do so with firm footing.
Be like the child that is forever curious.
The Universe awaits your searching. All eyes are on you!
