New Moon in Cancer: Setting the Table

It’s a big round table that we’re all sitting at together, and even those of us who grew up with wise elders and stable households are still frightened children, sometimes. And sometimes there are bigger, stronger people protecting us from life’s harshness, but sometimes we’re the ones who have to fry the chicken and...

Summer Solstice: Slowing Down, Turning Around

Like crabs skittering down the beach under a pale summer moon, we move in erratic ways, not along linear paths, zigging and zagging, revisiting old missteps. In nostalgia, we long to reclaim and embrace our abandoned childhood shells. Maybe, we think, that’s when we had it exactly right about who we were and what...

Full Moon in Sagittarius: I Married An Alien

Like a summer road trip, the Sagittarius Full Moon carries a soupçon of joyful rebelliousness and a rowdy spirit of adventure. In those cramped quarters where your life has grown too small, or where you’re asking too little of yourself, you should be feeling good and restless about now....

New Moon in Gemini: A World in Motion

This many fast-moving planets in retrograde motion, for months in a row, must be telling us something. To slow down and reconsider before we act, perhaps. To read the fine print. To reclaim territory that we ceded too soon. To revel in slowness, in stillness....

Full Moon in Scorpio: In the Belly of a Duck

Prosperity is a dance you must do with the unseen forces of the collective. The money you hope to attract has to come from other people. And the minute you demonstrate a willingness to accept help from the collective, the oppressive weight of trying to earn a living is immediately cut in half. There’s...

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus: Pennies from Heaven

There is a fable that maintains that when you find a penny, it was left in your path by someone who is looking out for you from heaven. I don’t know that I believe that, exactly, but even small blessings can eventually add up to something quite wonderful, regardless of their provenance.

Lunar Eclipse in Libra: You Were Asleep

Maybe that old break has completely healed – but I’ll bet if we looked closely we would detect the tiniest hairline crack, such as you might find on a vase that was broken and glued back together. It’ll never be the same as it was before the break. You’ll never be the same person...

New Moon in Aries: The Taming

We start out as wild horses, and life is the process by which we’re tamed. Some of us are civilized by gentle masters who teach us restraint without breaking our spirits. Others were brutalized by cruel circumstances that taught us to trample everything in our paths. Most of us have encountered both types of...
