New Year Sign

Business as Usual in 2023...
I continue to offer ALL Astrology chart readings via Phone or online Zoom Video!
As We Traverse 2023:  


New Moon in TAURUS May 19th - Time to BE in the Moment, Physically Show Up!

READ ALL ABOUT IT - check out my "It's In The Stars!" Blog (above in MORE) for a freshly published bit of Astrological Weather News! This month of May brought huge CHANGE with PLUTO stationing Rx/retrograde at 00 AQU, the MAY 5th Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio closing this first Eclipse Cauldron/Season, while Mercury finishes his 2nd Rx/retrograde timing MAY 31st! BOTH Venus and Mars are in the Cardinal Water sign of CANCER - to nurture /do self-care of both Inner Divine Feminine/Divine Masculine sides of ourselves. The New Moon in TAURUS brings much needed grounding and being out in Nature to breathe in the sweet scents of blossoms, Lilacs, and all the green that is growing up so explosively here in Western Canada. PLUTO continues to square BOTH North/South Lunar Nodes - creating a lot of Inner Stress/tension to allow in CHANGE - not easy to do, since they're all in fixed signs that don't like Change. Can be as Stubborn as a Bull + with Scorpio Stings + possible Emotional standoffishness while the Ego-self SURRENDERS to a more Soul-Self oriented direction and desire. Resistance only delays the inevitable. Breathe. Embrace the changes occurring and move along as you Value your Worth and Speak Your Truth. Namaste

MERCURY Rx/Retrograde - ends MAY 31st!

Mercury continues to be in the fixed EARTH sign of TAURUS mentally preparing us for and envisioning the daily practicalities, being hands-on with the details of living, paying bills, putting food on the table, working in the livelihood that best reflects our values, ethics and integrity. From APR 7th, 2023 until MAY 31st, 2023 how has your mind/mental body changed its view on things? The 2023 Mercury Rx's will be in EARTH signs - so physically, what changes in mindset have you made so far that manifest according to your own set of Values, worthiness of Self and all things relating to money in your world? What House(s) of Life Experience are being activated within your Birth chart? These are the areas of your life that will need your mindful attention. Note that Mercury will catch up with Uranus June 3-6, 2023 so Expect the Unexpected to come roaring through, bringing in your Inner Genius out to speak, write, think in ways not approached before now!

The Planets Are are Beginning Their Rx/retrograde/Inner processing Motion - from APR 20, 2023 Peaking in SEPT - then back to All Direct Motion in 2024! 

Almost 90 days of unimpeded Direct Motion from Within has ended. The Sun's moved into Taurus as of APR 20th; Mercury's Rx now in Taurus too, until MAY 31; Venus is now in her Gemini Throat Chakra Gate since APR 23rd and is OOB (Out of Bounds)!; Mars is also OOB in Cancer until May 20th; Jupiter leaves Aries May 16th to move into Taurus for the next year, turns Rx SEPT 4th; Saturn entered Pisces March 7th and heads Rx June 17th; Uranus stays Direct in Taurus until going Rx AUG 29th, ensuring we honour our unique values, how we do money, know our own worth! Neptune's been in Pisces since FEB 2012 and will continue here until March 31, 2025 - and will connect with Saturn sometime in 2024! Pluto's in the 00 degrees of Aquarius since March 23 - June 11th and goes Rx today - MAY 1st - giving us a taste of what this revolutionary transformer will bring into our consciousness that has been hiding/keeping secrets for far too long! He continues to closely SQUARE BOTH North/South Lunar Nodes in Taurus/Scorpio until mid-DEC 2023! Stress and tension from Within to SURRENDER the Old out-moded routines/structures in our lives that no longer support us! The Ego-self resists / distracts / procrastinates to stay safe with the same-old, same-old ways. What will it take for you to LET GO?


Uranus in Taurus - Since March 2018

Continues to bring Unexpected Change and the need to stand up for and align our Values with like-minded others, aiding us to find our truly authentic "groups and community" to spend time with, working towards common humanitarian goals. Since Summer 2022, Uranus has been conjunct the North Lunar Node (current Soul Direction) in the mid-degrees of TAURUS while in opposition to that South Lunar Node (Karmic - letting go of the unresolved issues) in the mid-degrees of SCORPIO. Now he's close to Mercury Rx's and the Sun's path right now in Taurus - Expect the Unexpected where Uranus is concerned! What's unexpectedly CHANGING in Your Life around safety/security/serenity/hands-on creative using your own skills/talents to create - WHAT exactly? as we head further into 2023?!

The Lunar Nodes - North & South - Changed signs in 2022 for 19 Months

To bring in Change and the Unexpected within the fixed Zodiac signs of Taurus/North Node Soul Direction and Scorpio / South Node unresolved issues from the Past/Past Lives. Interestingly, the Lunar Nodes move in a Rx/retrograde motion, beginning their journey from the 29th degree of Taurus/Scorpio, moving through the 30 degrees of each sign for the next 19 months. How will your Values and Worthiness be challenged? What Secrets and Fears will be uncovered, to be faced and healed? Time will tell all for each of us throughout 2022 until JULY 17, 2023 when they move into the 29th degree of Aries/Libra - moving from Fixed to Cardinal signs. Initiating much-needed CHANGE re our Self-identity and how we DO our relationships/partnerships. Interesting Times to be sure.

Other Planetary Changes in Direction in 2023:

Pluto enters AQUARIUS MARCH 23/24, 2023 for a short stay until JUNE 12th

Within this fixed air sign AQUARIUS (where Saturn's been preparing us since DEC 21 2020) - Pluto brings even deeper transformative change into our lives! It's been well over 248 years since Pluto moved through this sign - around 1775 - when revolutions and the masses demanded change of leadership, better living conditions, in several areas around the globe. What changes will we be seeing? Pluto brings the need to transmute or compost that which no longer works for the common good - bringing us into intense undercurrents of deep-seated upheavals from Within - beyond our control - as we bring the Unconscious to the surface, becoming more aware of our uniqueness, our inner genius, creating innovation and invention for humanity! Pluto will slip into and out of AQUARIUS four times until he decides to stay there for a long while as of NOV 20, 2024! From APR - mid-DEC 2023 PLUTO squares BOTH North/South Nodes. Here's where we release the Past AND move forward on our Soul Path at the same time that we compost the PAST of what our Soul no longer desires energetically. 

Jupiter enters TAURUS MAY 16/17, 2023 - expanded Values/Money/Worthiness

The next year of how our Higher Purpose, through the beliefs/truths we find as we connect with our values/worth and how we relate to money/resources of skills/talents we use to be hands-on creative. To Risk. Take a Leap of Faith forward beyond current safe boundaries. Interesting timing for Alberta Canada - with an important MAY 29, 2023 provincial election coming our way! What will we collectively be Leaping into then?

Saturn entered PISCES MARCH 7, 2023 - will be here for the next 2.5 years!

 To restructure our Spiritual goals/connection/practice - Saturn's move into mutable Water PISCES brings much-needed infrastucture to our daily lives. It's been 29 years since Saturn was last here - JAN 29, 1994 through to APR 7, 1996 - what were you spiritually connecting with back then? How did those goals enhance your life? What are you renewing for the next three years as we experience even more massive shifts and changes on planet Earth? What will you be responsible for? What do you not want to be responsible for? What responsibilities have you taken on that were never yours to begin with? It's time to let them go! Interestingly, when Saturn left Pisces back in 1996, shortly thereafter the Internet came into being - our lives have since changed how humanity interacts/communicates with one another. Is it TIME to engage more humanly vs. through machines again?
