Pluto18PetalsMulti-Layers2WEBSITEThursday, March 31, 2016 –

The last day of March is upon us! Today should be an interesting mix of energies with lots of depth and passion in the evening. The moon is in Capricorn all day and it has us busy and not afraid to do the work. So expect today to bring with it a desire to get things accomplished – then get out there and do the work!

The first aspect for today is when the moon in Capricorn comes to a sextile with Neptune in Pisces at 10 AM. This has us feeling intuitive about our bodies. The moon is in Capricorn in my own natal chart. Whenever I see transiting moon in Capricorn I like to tell people to pay attention to their physical bodies, it does speak to us. With the influence of the Neptune sextile we might get some intuitive hits on things we should be more aware of. Such as are we taking care of our bodies or do we need to adjust? If you need to adjust, this aspect might not be the biggest motivation for us to do so. It will though, be an inspiration for us to understand where we need to make some changes.

The next aspect is when moon in Capricorn makes a square to the sun in Aries at 11:17 AM. This asks us to have patience with ourselves, and others of the opposite sex. Squares cause a vibration of energy and it can be utilized for the good. On the positive side of this wave we have a desire to be persistent and on the other side of this vibration we want to hurry and rush. Take your time, good things come to those that think things through and make time to do it right.

Today’s big news is when Mercury in Aries makes a conjunction with Uranus, also of course in Aries. This peaks at 4:49 PM but we will feel it all of today and part of tomorrow too. This aspect has me visualizing a telephone wire that is sparking. Sure telephone wires don’t spark, but if they did – it would be the perfect visual of this aspect. Mercury is the planet that governs over Gemini and Virgo the two very “thinking” signs and Uranus governs over Aquarius, the other “thinking” sign. Putting these planets in Aries makes them hot and vibrant! Inspiration to go one’s own way. Also thinking and coming up with original ideas or new perceptions about your life is a way to utilize this energy. Think tanks, and inspirational messages are bound to come to those ready for them today!

Next the moon comes to a trine with Jupiter in Virgo at 6:57 PM. This has us feeling optimistic, maybe about the inspirational things that the above aspect brings to the table. Optimism is great, just remember to keep yourself grounded and the Capricorn/Virgo energy of these two planets will likely be that grounding force for this optimism.

The last aspect for today is the one day of the month that we get to purge all that we have stuffed down inside of. The moon and Pluto conjunct each other at 10:37 PM in Capricorn. Capricon, to me is the sign that stews on things a bit more than maybe they should. I get it, we all want to remember the past, but sometimes letting go of the past is the best thing we can do to move into the future. The moon comes along each month connecting with Pluto because it is in Capricorn and we have a sort of purging of those things we have buried. It is the Universes way to say to you… Ok are you ready to let this stuff go yet? Search your bucket of things you have stuffed down, or even if they come up voluntarily today, let them and ask yourself. Is it time? Time to release? Do what you need to, cry, stammer, cancel and close those things that live inside of you deeply. Let them out and let them go. I promise you will feel better once you get over the hump of emotions that are likely tied to them.

Calcite is the gemstone suggestion for today. Calcite helps to amplify energy and turn negative energy into positive. Giving you a new found feeling of positivity.

Valerian, although to me not the most loveliest of scents, is the suggested essential oil for today. I personally like valerian in capsules I ingest. It is calming, very earthy (like today is) and helps sedate us, just enough to not be electrified! The reason I am choosing Valerian for today is the Mercury-Uranus in Aries energy, reminding us to have that balance and keep calm!

We begin the day with the void-of-course moon in Sagittarius, giving us a lazy and aimless feeling this morning. Try to get your routine tasks done and tie up any loose ends.

The first aspect today is a square from Mercury to Pluto which is exact at 10:53 AM. This is a deep thoughts and problem solving at it’s best. At worst it is anxiety and negative thinking so today is a day to use those positive affirmations with a vengeance! This is something that a lot of people struggle with, combating negative thoughts, and it takes practice and perseverance and vigilance to overcome this tendency, Use today’s energy as a challenge to stand up and fight this tendency if it is something you struggle with personally, or to renew your stand against negative thinking if this is a battle you have already won.

The moon enters Capricorn PM 1:45 PM which can be serious and grounding. The moon in Capricorn would rather work that deal with emotional issues but it is good for working on goals and objectives.

A good stone to work with today is black tourmaline which helps to eliminate negative energies.

An essential oil to try today is is geranium which is comforting in difficult times.

Mercury-Jupiter3Fans22WEBSITEnikkiTuesday, March 29, 2016 –

The moon is a busy lady today! Expect today to have several main facets to it. Enjoy a mostly upbeat day today. The moon in Sagittarius makes a trine to Mercury in Aries at 8:56 AM. This has us feeling quite convincing to others, but we might not want to push ourselves. Inspiration can be sought out if we practice living in the moment.

The moon then comes to a square with Jupiter in Virgo at 9:55 AM. This can have us feeling a little emotionally excessive or not very practical. If you are noticing an uneasiness in this morning with your moods, just practice patience and this too shall pass.

This is also the day in the month where the moon comes to a conjunction with Saturn, this happens at 11:18 AM. This is the time to do things that make you feel grounded and centered. For a lot of us that can be going over our finances or even getting out in the garden and touching the earth. Saturn wants us to bring reality to the forefront of our lives. This reminds us to make sure that we are living the life we really want to live. Make sure you are, or make plans to get on track with doing this – today.
Notice every month when moon and Saturn conjunct, you can make it a little ritual for yourself to inspect the structure of your life.
Is it working right?
Do you need to adjust anything?
For the next good bit of time, this will be when the moon transits into the sign of Sagittarius because Saturn is in Sagittarius for quite some time. So pay attention to this bit of advise and make astrology work for you!

The moon the comes to a trine with Uranus in Aries at 6:02 PM. This is a nice energy that has us feeling quite original and excitable. If you have something you are working on that is inspiring to you, this is a great time to work on it!

The moon the comes to an square to Venus in Pisces at 9:55 PM. This aspect has us feeling like having a good time and enjoying ourselves with others that we care about. You might want to get out early and home early since this is the last aspect of the Sagittarius moon. Then lady luna goes into her void-of-course phase.

While the moon is void-of-course its a good time to curl up with a good book for the evening. Or better yet why not curl up with your other half, cup of tea and a zen kitty if you have one! Enjoy the night and rest should be pleasing because the moon stays void-of-course until tomorrow afternoon.

The last aspect for today is when Mercury in Aries is trine to Saturn in Sagittarius, at 11:02 PM. This aspect has thinking about making realistic goals and setting ideas for the suture for yourself. This aspect is felt most of the day and some of tomorrow also, so you might want to organize yourself a little and start planning or structuring yourself a little.

The essential oil for today is ylang-ylang. It will help you feel invigorated and inspired while working on some of the planetary energies for the day!

The gemstone suggestion for today is amber, which helps connect you with your true divine spirits desires.

All times are in Eastern US Time.

Monday March 28, 2016 Jup-SatCircleofScrolls2WEBSITEnikki

The lovely moon enters adventurous Sagittarius at 2:46 AM. This is lighter feeling than we have had the past couple of days with the moon in Scorpio. We want to reach for the stars, and explore beyond the horizon when the moon is in Sagittarius.

The first aspect today has the ruler of our moods, the moon, conjunct feisty Mars. This aspect peaks at 4:12 PM. Basically when the moon and Mars touch our emotions are given extra energy. It is time to act on our feelings. Take action, and stop sitting around! Sometimes when we do not address our feelings we start getting angry or agitated, so if you feel that way it is time to take stock about what you are really feeling and take action to remedy the situation!

The sun and moon make a trine aspect which peaks at 8:11 PM. This is the waning trine of the lunar cycle, the moon is fading in the sky but is still more than half full. This aspect is harmonious and gives us a feeling that things are flowing and moving in a good direction.

Our final aspect of the day is a square from the moon to foggy Neptune. Neptune is the great confuser of the zodiac, and when the moon is square we can feel a bit confused, or lost, or uncertain, or wondering if you are on the right track. On the bright side this aspect also puts us in touch with our dreams and our inspiration so let this raise you up and if there is something you don’t know … well, life is meant to be mysterious and we are not supposed to understand everything! Embrace the Great Mystery!

A great stone to work with today is obsidian which helps to remove negativity and also has protective qualities.

An essential oil to try today is tangerine which is bright, cheery and uplifting.

Sunday, March 27, 2016 –Jup-NepPinWheelNucleusWEBSITE

Today is almost a free day with the moon in Scorpio making a trine to Venus in Pisces early in the morning before swiftly going void-of-course. This trine has us feeling lovely and sensitive. Both planets being in a water sign also have an element of intuition connected to them too. Therefore today will be watery, sweet and calm!

The void-of-course moon lasts until the wee hours in the morning on Monday. Therefore you might want to relax or work on projects that you have already begun. This is a good time for you to meditate, connect with Spirit, God, Goddess or however it is that you connect with the higher source. Give yourself some time of rest too, naps sound like a great idea this afternoon!

Angelite is the suggested gemstone for today, giving us a chance to connect with spirit and the angels.

Lavender is the suggested essential oil today, giving us the chance to open our hearts and spirit to the universe.

Saturday March 26, 2016 VenusFrillyFlower2WEBSITEnikki

There is a deep, mysterious Scorpio moon today … the thing about this placement is that I always feel like Scorpio forces us to deal with the emotions that we would rather avoid. Scorpio goes deep, and that can be a difficult thing to do at times.

The first aspect today is a trine from the sun to Mars at 6:32 AM which is invigorating and active. This is an exciting and energetic aspect. We feel motivated and vital and alive! It is a great energy to wake up to and it should linger all day long so enjoy this blessing!

Lovely lady Venus makes an enticing sextile to deep, sexy Pluto which peaks at 7:12 AM. This is sensual and can be romantic. It’ is like a piercing look from across the room which makes your heart beat faster. This is another aspect that we should be able to feel all day long so enjoy it and do something deliciously naughty while you are at it!

The ruler or our daily moods, the moon, makes a harmonious trine to Neptune, the illusionist which is exact at 11:25 AM. We could also call Neptune the idealist and the dreamer. But this aspect should allow us to be in touch with our intuition. The hardest part of Neptune is knowing when to trust our gut… we wonder if we are fooling ourselves. We sometimes tend to doubt our own intuition and this aspect today mean that yes, your instincts are right.

Our final aspect of the day is a supportive sextile from the moon to generous Jupiter which peaks at 10:31 PM. We feel like sharing with others, we feel like being social, we feel like enjoying ourselves! It would be a great night for an intimate dinner party or something else where you can socialize in a small, private way that makes the Scorpio moon feel more comfortable. I’m imagining a private wine tasting party with paired foods that you can share and discuss. There should be laughter and some nice ambiance. Enjoy!

A great stone to use today is prehnite which helps us better tune in to our intuition.

An essential oil to use today is lemon which is invigorating, refreshing and clean.

All times are in Eastern US Time.

Friday, March 25, 2016 –Saturn

There are a couple bigger things happening in the sky today, this week has been chock full of astrological happenings! Saturn makes his yearly turn for his retrograde motion this morning. Do not fret though, keep reading and you will understand what to do and how to best handle it!

Saturn goes retrograde at 6:01 AM this morning. He is not the trickster that Mercury is, and I know we all know about Mercury Retrograde! Saturn is different though, not only is his retrograde phase once a year, he is retrograde for months. This particular cycle of retrograde lasts until August. When Mercury retrogrades he does it in smaller 3 week cycles and you hear a lot about it because he rules over our nervous system, computers, clear thinking and our minds. Saturn on the other hand is the teacher, lessons, our structure, boundaries and reminds me of the quiet but influential boss in a company. Saturn retrograde need not be feared (or any other retrograde for that matter) if you know how to deal with him properly.

In a way Saturn really is the boss of our lives, and if he isn’t then you might notice a bit of a struggle within yourself as he transitions in this cycle of retrograde. You can decipher where that struggle might be by seeing what house Saturn is transiting in your chart. This is a good reason for you to get an astrological consultation with one of us, to help you through this period of time.

What Saturn does during this time is give the opportunity for going back over our long term commitments and responsibilities that we have taken on. This really needs to be looked at before we continue. We get the opportunity to reorganize and renegotiate the commitments we are already in and seem to cause us frustrations. Saturn retrograde gives us an opportunity to see those commitments that are not really right for us and finally say “no” to them. Saturn also gives us a chance to solidify the commitments and responsibilities that we have undertaken in the past.

Saturn retrograde is an excellent time to begin eating healthier or taking some inventory of what is working for you – what isn’t. Then taking some appropriate action in those results. So prepare yourself for this coming turning of Saturn by and what needs some adjustment in your life. Just remember we are all a beautiful work in progress, so work on your masterpiece – YOU!

The next aspect for today is when Venus in Pisces comes to an opposition with Jupiter in Virgo at 7:58 AM. This is a really good energy for us to remember to be practical in dealing with the things and or people that we love. Try not to put those people up on the pedestal and remember that we are all just humans, even the ones that are truly important to us. This aspect has been hitting us since yesterday and will continue throughout the whole day today.

Venus in Pisces then comes to a square with Saturn in Sagittarius at 12:48 PM today. Venus governs over our attraction to love and Saturn is the wise old man of the planets. When these two connect in a square pattern we feel a surge of energy towards our relationships and want to bring an element of truth to them. Since Saturn is recently retrograde, these are likely already established relationships.

Finally! Our moon comes out of his void-of-course phase at 2 PM and ingresses into the sign of Scorpio. Well I said finally, but who loves the Scorpio moon? Just sort of teasing there, I actually love all the energies we are handed, the trick is just how to utilize them the best! Scorpio moon is intense, direct and passionate. The thing with Scorpio moon is that not only do we feel the intense joy and passion, we also feel the betrayal and jealousy emotions as well! Some good advise for this transiting Scorpio moon is to understand that these passionate energies are here and that its really only a space in time that it is in and learn to work with them instead of pushing against the grain.

The gemstone suggested for today is Tigers Eye, it will help bring balance and stability to your life and keep you grounded during the Saturn station.

The essential oil suggestion for today is Cypress. This oil helps us to balance and regain our strength and power, especially for those of us going through a difficult time.

Thursday March 24, 2016 Uranus9-PetalsMulti-WEB-NIKKI

The moon is in Libra today and we may still be feeling a little bit of a lunar hangover after yesterday’s lunar eclipse! Libra is about balance and harmony, and in terms of relationships it is about how can I be in a relationship while also being an individual. Libra needs both freedom and relationship!

The first aspect today is a sextile from the moon to Saturn which peaks at 10:33 AM. This can be a steadying influence that allows us to feel more emotionally stable. This can certainly help after the overwhelming emotions that accompanied the eclipse yesterday.

The moon next makes a square to Pluto which is exact at 12:26 PM. Maybe we aren’t completely done with emotional upheaval but with this at least it is a short term influence that allows us to confront and process and feelings we have have been avoiding. Best thing to do is to stop repressing emotions! If you have done so in the past allow those emotions to come out and be processed in a healthy way.

There is an opposition from the moon to Uranus at 4:55 PM which is like a jolt of lightning. We are pushed out of our comfort zone and it is not, obviously, comfortable. This is a surprise, something unexpected, that we are confronted with. With the opposition it usually involves another person. After this aspect the moon is void-of-course which makes us feel all tingly like after the storm has passes we can still feel the residual energy in the air but we aren’t quite sure how to harness any of that energy.

The final aspect of the day is the strongest. Mercury makes a trine to Mars which peaks at PM but should be active all day long. Say much? Mercury Mars is about energetic communication. Here we have Mercury flying through Aries an incredibly fast pace zapping Mars in Sagittarius. There is not a lot of tact in this communication but it is direct and to the point! So if you have something to say go for it!

A great stone to use today is smoky quartz which helps to stabilize us after the overwhelming energy form yesterday’s eclipse.

An essential oil I would recommend for today is peppermint which is refreshing and soothing at the same time.

MoonOverlappingStars4WEBSITEnikkiWednesday, March 23, 2016 –

Welcome to the long awaited day of the lunar eclipse! Not only it is an eclipse today there are some powerful aspects as well. This is a great time to purge and heal so if it feels a little rough, just know this is the process and allow yourself to seek out that which you are looking for – allowing the astrology to work with you!

The first thing is the moon’s ingress into the sign of Libra early this morning. The moon was void-of-course since Monday night at 11:55 PM. So all of yesterday it was void-of-course. This may have had some of us feeling a sort of lag in our energy. Today that will shift around so I hope you got in some chill time! Libra moon also comes to be full and she has an eclipse today so highlighted today and over the next 6 months are relationships. Think of the relationships you are in and you have cultivated in your life. Are you in ones that enrich your self worth and your journey on your path in life? If not, this is a perfect day and over the next 6 months take to take some inventory them. Then adjust as needed. Remember when you let go of those people that are not working in your life, you leave room for new ones that do.

Jupiter in Virgo comes to a square with Saturn in Sagittarius at 6:15 AM. This transit is a longer one and more of a time of transformation than an event that happens. Saturn brings reality to carefree Jupiter. That reality may not feel grounded for some of us and this could be a difficult transit to go through because of it. When Saturn and Jupiter make this square we may feel a little depressed or ill fortuned. We have been feeling this particular aspect for about a month now, this is the first culmination of it. Since this aspect is with two slow moving planets, and Jupiter goes direct soon, there is another exact aspect between these two before the energy actually goes away. This exact aspect is May 26th but since these two never go out of orb between now and May 26th – the energy is never quite gone. The aspect is also part of a very powerful mutable grand square in June and is completely gone by the end of summer. The main thing for you to focus yourself on is creating stability in the areas of your life that these two planets connect with in your own chart.

The next aspect that comes to pass today is when the moon and Mercury in Aries come to an opposition at 7:11 AM. This means that Mercury is right in the mix of the lunar eclipse. So the lunar eclipse is just colored on the Libra/Aries axis and has us drawing our attention to relationships and personal power. Mercury brings in the fact that we also need to bring about communication within the realms of our relationships too.

Next is our peak of the lunar eclipse which takes place at 8:01 AM today. This is when the moon is exactly full and opposite the sun in the sky. The lunar eclipse happens at 3 degrees Libra and the sun is at 3 degrees Aries. This Libra/Aries axis is a tug-of-war between our own personal power with the sun at Aries and then our connection with others with the moon in Libra. We feel this power very strongly now and we want to make harmony within and with others. This is not just a single one time event either, but rather a process we can work on for the next 6 months. Heal the relationships that need healing and let go of the ones that do not work so we can embrace those that do.

Eclipses sort of blot out the luminary that they are eclipsing, this time it is the moon. Therefore it is as if we are given the chance to bot out some of the things in our subconscious and open our light in another direction. I refer to it as a sort of blotting out of the energies because the moon is cast a shadow upon and its as if in a metaphorical sense our emotions are given a reset button. Hey, who doesn’t love a reset? Right?! Give this eclipse a chance to work for you in a harmonious manner in your life.

The moon the comes to a sextile to Mars at 12:33 PM. This has us feeling excited and maybe a little bit of nervous energy. This is a good aspect to go out and spend some energy in a way that makes you sweat! Go and enjoy warming up your body and get it moving and shaking at this time!

The last aspect that comes to a culmination on today is when the sun makes a conjunction with Mercury, this happens at 4:11 PM. This has the sun bringing some light to Mercury and giving us a chance to shine our light on our words. This is a great aspect to pay attention to details and the little things in life.

The gemstone for today is moonstone to help balance the energies of the lunar eclipse.

The essential oil for today is clary sage, giving us an opportunity to connect with the energies of the moon even further. This is also helpful at giving us a chance to work with lucid dreams in our lives.

All times are in Eastern US Time.

Tuesday March 22, 2016 – Sun-SaturnTapestry3WEBSITEnikki

It is an absolutely free day in the stars today. No aspects and an all day long void-of-course moon in Virgo. This is highly unusual and the only day this year with nothing happening, not even the moon changing signs! As a result today may feel a little surreal. With the void-of-course it is not a good time to start anything new but with the impending full moon lunar eclipse tomorrow we may also feel a sense of tension and build up. This is the calm before the storm. It is a good day for preparation and detox. And when I say detox I mean on any and all levels, spiritual, mental or physical.

A good stone to use today is hematite which helps to balance ourselves and draw out unwanted energies.

An essential oil to use today is juniper which is known for it’s purifying qualities and can help us with our metaphorical (or metaphysical) detox.

All times are in Eastern US Time.

MercuryDynamicXJapaneseWEBSITENikkiMonday, March 21, 2016 –

The Virgo moon makes an opposition to Neptune in Pisces at 9:59 AM today. This has us kind of not really trusting our intuition or over thinking it a bit. We might feel a little cloudy this morning, so it would be good to postpone making any really important decisions at least until later in the afternoon.

The moon then comes to an opposition with Venus in pisces at 12:14 PM. This has us pondering over our love life. Because Neptune is also in the mix, we might be asking ourselves – are we in that idealistic love situation or not? Although not a lot of motivation comes from this aspect, and it doesn’t last but today, it gives us the ideas we ponder over to work on later.

Mercury then enters into the sign of Aries, at 8:19 PM. Mercury in Aries makes me think of someone that loves to talk and get their voice out there. Communicate, talk, ask questions, speak about things you feel passionate about JUST remember that other people get to do the same. The best advise I can give for this transit of Mercury is listen twice as much as you speak, and speak, say it, because Aries energy wants to be communicated! Mercury will be in Aries until April 5th so it is a short trip, make use of its energy!

The moon then makes a square to Saturn in Sagittarius at 10:07 PM. This gives a more serious undertone to the evening. This is also a motivating force for someone wanting to get something accomplished. Hey, the moon is in Virgo, why not clean the dust bunnies up from under your sofa!

Quick to follow the moon conjuncts Jupiter in Virgo at 10:27 PM. This has us feeling expansive and emotional and since Saturn is mixed in this a bit, we might feel a serious vibe to these expanding emotions. Just remember that coloring these transiting planets under the Virgo shade can have us over analysing things, be careful not to do that.

The very last aspect for today is when the moon comes to a trine with Pluto in Capricorn, this exacts at 11:55PM. This can have us feeling like some deeper emotions come out. Since this aspect is a harmonious trine, that which comes out is not necessarily bad, deep, but not always bad! Some of this can spell romance if that is what you have buried within, so let your loved ones know you love them and create some nice memories if you get the chance.

Allspice is the suggested essential oil for today, it brings about a warm energy that reminds me of the fiery Mercury ingression into Aries.

Red Jasper is the gemstone suggested for today, helping to ground and keep you stable.

All times are in Eastern US Time.

Sunday March 20, 2016 –Earth-JupiterTapestryWEBSITEnikki

We have the void-of-course moon in Leo for the first half of the day until she finally moves into Virgo at 1:39 PM. When the moon is void-of-course it is said that “nothing good will come of it” which means that you should not start new endeavors under the void-of-course moon. Sticking to tasks that are routine or that were previously started is usually best. So use the morning to clear your desk of all your old, unfinished business! Once the moon moves into Virgo we will feel like taking care of all those little things that we never see to get around to anyway!

The big news of the day is that we have the first day of spring! The Vernal Equinox is at 12:31 AM (Eastern time US) and this marks the point where night and day are of equal length. It also marks the ingress of the sun into Aries! Sun in Aries is independent, adventurous and willing to take some risks! Welcome Spring! Here in the northern hemisphere at least we have missed you!

Later in the day we have a conjunction between Venus and Neptune in Pisces. This peaks at 1:46 PM but it makes me feel like we should be feeling love drunk all day long. Romance, inspiration, love, love, love! There is something unrealistic about this aspect so I expect to have a surreal quality to the day … like a waking dream. Enjoy it! And make some wishes today! Love and miracles can and do happen!

Our final aspect is a square from the moon to Mars which peaks at 11:13 PM. This an a feeling of anger or aggression or even frustration but it shouldn’t be very serious … more an irritation. If you do feel this way some physical activity can help to channel those feelings until they can pass on their own.

A great essential oil to use today is lemon which reminds me of spring: fresh, revitalizing, uplifting.

A stone to work with today is Herkimer diamond which is a type of quartz that helps us “begin again” which resonates with that springtime energy of having a fresh start.

The moon spoends the day in Leo all day today, in the evening the sun ingresses into the sign of Aries. This is a fiery day today!

The first aspect we have today is when the moon makes a trine to Saturn in Sagittarius at 11:08 AM. Sagittarius just so happens to be the third fire sign of the zodiac, so even stable, cool, calm and collected Saturn is heated up! This is not a bad energy, but rather a nice one that is patient and stable. This makes me think of it being a good morning to take on some of those tasks we need to do in our lives that we don’t always love doing. Or those things that we do love doing that takes us time and patience to do, gardening comes to mind! Saturn is not afraid to do the work and the fiery trine to the moon makes for a nice vibe. This puts us in the mood to get things done.

The next ptolemaic aspect is when the Leo moon makes a trine to Uranus in Aries. This aspect peaks at 4:43 PM, and is a bit more exciting to the mood than in the morning. Uranus has a fun vibe to it, and one that likes to sort of march to its own beat. Connecting it with the moon in a harmonious trine makes us feel like being original and doing something that makes us feel alive! Have fun this is Saturday night after all! Just heed the advise to make the fun happen early in the day and try to plan ahead because after this aspect the moon slides into her void-of-course phase until tomorrow afternoon.

The gemstone suggested for today is Tigers Eye, it will help to keep the balance and inspire you to greatness.

The essential oil suggested for today is Thyme, it will help to regulate your energy levels and bring harmony to your endocrine system.

All times are in Eastern US Time.

Friday March 18, 2016 –SunStar-likewithTriangles2WEBSITENIKKI

The Cancer moon goes void-of-course night after midnight at 12:09 AM after making a sweet trine to the sun. This is a waxing moon and as the moon grows in size we usually feel like our own inner light is growing as we have more energy and optimism. And the timing of the void-of-course moon is good since it is in the middle of the night and the moon soon enters the next sign!

The moon enters creative Leo at 3:54 AM. Le moon can be childlike but it can also be very proud … I think trying to balance somewhere in the middle is a good practice for today. Being childlike without being immature, and being confident without being overly proud.

The moon makes a supportive trine to Mars which peaks at 11:46 AM. Moon-Mars is an active combination and it often related to channeling energy into activities that make you feel good about yourself. Going for a hike, cooking a good meal from scratch, getting a great workout at the gym, it really doesn’t matter what the activity is except that when you are done you have a sense of accomplishment and of satisfaction for doing something good for you!

An essential oil to use today is geranium which has the childlike essence like to Leo moon … soft, creative, open to new ideas.

A good stone for today is sapphire which helps to purge unwanted thoughts and helps keep up focused on joy and peace.

All times are in Eastern US Time.

Sun-NeptuneVisionaryLight2WEBSITEnikkiThursday, March 17, 2016 –

The moon remains in Cancer all day today, giving us a comfortable feeling. Not too much pressure or stress, but emotions can be high and you may feel sensitive.

The first aspect is when the moon makes a soft but active sextile to Jupiter in Virgo. This has a cheerful and good feeling in the air, even though it exacts early in the morning at 4 AM, we should wake up feeling positive.

A few minutes later the moon makes an opposition to Pluto in Capricorn at 4:08 AM. This kind of pulls out the deeper dreams we have inside of ourselves that yearn to be expressed. If you are sleeping, deep dreams may come to light, journal them down when you awaken. Deep movement and conviction are possible at this time, if you work with this energy correctly. Otherwise it will move on like all the other moments in time.

A bit later in the morning at the moon makes a square to Uranus in Aries at 7:39 AM. This gives the morning a bit of an electric feel to it. We might be feeling erratic or a bit eccentric. Often under this aspect our actions are quick and not so well thought out.

The last aspect is when the moon comes to a trine with Mercury at 12:17 PM. This is a great chance for that erratic energy of the early morning to calm down and put some focus on reaching decisions and taking action. This will smooth out our minds a bit.

The gemstone suggested for today is celestite. It will help to clear the mind and bring in awareness of something higher than oneself.

The essential oil suggested for today is grapefruit which is refreshing and invigorating to the soul.

The moon is in sensitive Cancer and we have a pretty easy day in store today; easy but powerful! Things should flow and we should feel generally good all day long with a big burst of energy to boot!

The moon and Venus make a lovely trine which peaks at 5:44 AM. This is an aspect that makes us want to relate to people, we love company and we want to share our lives with others through companionship and friendship.

The moon makes a supportive trine to Neptune at 3:10 PM which helps us get in touch with our dreams. Neptune has an idealistic quality that lets us dream big and reach farther than we otherwise might. Neptune helps us believe in miracles.

The big deal of the day is a trine from Jupiter to Pluto which peaks at 4:26 PM. This aspect has a lot of different ways we could interpret it so let’s talk about a few. First Jupiter is expansive and Pluto is power … so we have expansive power resonating throughout the day in a harmonious manner. Jupiter-Pluto is often associated with wealth and this is because money, excessive money, is a form of expansive power. Jupiter-Pluto is also about powerful secrets … this would be a great day to do something like regression therapy where you explore deep territory within your own personal and karmic history. If there is a goal you have to work on that involves your own personal power to better develop that goal. Investments, both financial and in your personal like or work life can pay off today.

A great stone to use today is pyrite which helps us get in touch with our inspiration which can aid with a lot of the planetary energy today.

An essential oil to try today is frankincense which helps us view things from a spiritual perspective. When we deal with power having a spiritual viewpoint can only help.

The moon hangs out in Gemini for most of the day today before she ingresses into the sign of Cancer. Although she does make a couple of aspects in the early morning before she goes into her void-of-course phase. So use today to get things accomplished early and later in the day to relax and do your usual day-to-day activities, meditate, chillax or whatever you do that doesn’t push against the grain.

Early in the morning the moon in Gemini comes to a sextile with Uranus in Aries at 1:36 AM. Too bad this is a Tuesday evening because it might be fun to go out and do something creative or simply fun tonight. If you don’t have to luxury to do that, then find some way to spend some energy before bed and it should help you sleep. This particular aspect can have you feeling active and awake.

Right after this Mercury in Pisces comes to a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn at 2:58 AM. This has us having some deep and intense feelings. If you are asleep during this time, you might have dreams that have some sort of deep subconscious meaning to you. Journal them down if you awaken and recall them. If you are awake, you might find yourself contemplating the deeper meaning of your existence. Tonight is actually an interesting night to spend up with someone you connect with, while communicating some very meaningful meanderings. This does last through the early morning but sextiles go out of orb quickly so grab the deep and meaningful conversations while you can.

A little later in the morning Mercury comes to an opposition to Jupiter in Virgo at 5:42 AM. This has us wanting to be the center of attention. This could very well be a very late evening for some of us, staying up. Or an active early morning for others. Either way this is an excellent opportunity for communication and exploration of the mind in areas and ways that might not have been explored before. Mercury and Jupiter both play with each other and bring about thoughts that might be grandiose or larger than life, that is ok though. It is thoughts like this that begin new thought patterns and ideas begin to form. Write things down that come to you, no matter how “out of reach” it might feel. You might wind up finding yourself later on down the road, under some Merucry/Pluto/Saturn aspect that gives you the direction, power and strength to make it happen!

~ Never think to small. ~

The last aspect before the moon goes into her void-of-course phase is a square to the sun in Pisces. This aspect has us needing a little bit of patience. If you recall a couple days ago, there was harmony with those of the opposite sex. Well now there could be a tug of war or feeling of one of you wanting to be in charge. Don’t let that happen, be patient with yourself and others. This too shall pass.

The moon ingresses into the sign of Cancer at 8:57 PM. This is where the moon feels her loveliest, in the sign that she rules. Cancer is the mother of the zodiac, she nurtures and the moon’s placement here tells us that we should nurture and love ourselves. This is a great time to get your hair done, a manicure or pedicure, go to a spa or just some at home treatment for loving you. Women and men alike – we can all do to nurture ourselves a bit more! The moon is in Cancer until Friday so you have time to pamper you.

I like the idea of using Rainbow Moonstone with Black Tourmaline inclusions in it. If you happen to have some rainbow moonstone, often there are black flecks or pieces and often it is black tourmaline. If not having a piece of each is a great idea. I like this combination because I feel there is magic to be spoken and communicated early this morning, either through dreams, writing or even speaking. Sleep with it or hold onto it in the morning. Communication is going to happen and it can be quite magical too. I don’t even mean that in an airy-fairy way either sometimes we speak and it is magic because what we speak comes from the soul. I also love the black tourmaline mixed in this because it is the grounding essence that makes this magic so real and something aligned with your inner soul.

I am suggesting Tangerine for the essential oil today which enhances your energy in a positive and uplifting way.

The moon is in curious Gemini today. We like to explore ideas and our environment under the Gemini moon so as to not get bored!

Our first aspect is a square from the moon to Neptune which peaks at 10:07 AM. Call this an inability to deal with reality. We wish that things were not as they really are, so much so that we can even fool ourselves. Be careful that you are being objective instead of just hoping things are the way you wish they were.

Mercury squares Saturn at 3:26 PM and I call this a problem solving aspect. Mercury is how we think and Saturn is often a problem we run into and so we are forced to think our way out of this problem. Mercury-Saturn is quite a scientific combination so it wants rational and realistic solutions to the issues it faces. This is a good day to tackle any ongoing, unsolved challenges you have been facing lately.

Lovely Venus makes a square to sexy Mars at 4:48 PM. When Venus and Mars meet in the sky there are sparks they fly here on earth. This is physical attraction, chemistry, sexiness … all good things! Call it sensuality. It doesn’t just extend to lovemaking, it can also involve all of your senses … a great meal, the feeling of being in a garden with a soft breeze and the scents of nature. But do something sensual today! The universe asks for you to do this 🙂

The moon opposes Saturn which peaks at 8:54 PM. This is another challenging aspect but it does not last long so if you feel frustrated this evening just give it a little time. This too shall pass.

The moon makes a square to Mercury at 9:44 PM. Our emotions are in one place and our heads are in another place and there is a gap between those places. It is not uncommon for our hearts and our heads to be at odds though so this is a natural part of being a human.

The last aspect today is a square from the moon to Jupiter which is exact at 10:51 PM. I think of this aspect as over indulgence whether that is over indulgence in wine, liquor, sweets, pizza or anything else you can think of over doing it with. The risk is there so if you don’t want to overdo it you will need some willpower.

A great stone to work with today is ruby which resonates with the heart chakra and helps us open to love and to the idea of being more sensual.

An essential oil I would recommend today is jasmine which also allows us to access our more sensual side.

Sunday, March 13, 2016 –MercuryDynamicXJapaneseWEBSITENikki

We have the moon in Taurus for the first part of the day, comfortable and balanced with our emotions. The sun in Pisces makes a sextile to the moon in Taurus at 5:46 AM. This sextile has us feeling like being active, but in a way that is directed more towards the home. You might find yourself up making a yummy breakfast for your loved one early this Sunday morning. Or sipping coffee with friends, in particular friends of the opposite sex. There is a nice vibe for that this morning.

Right after this aspect the moon slips into her void-of-course phase, but alas the moon is in the sign of Taurus. The sign of Taurus is were the moon is exalted so the void-of-course phase is not such an offbeat-emotionally sort of feeling. The moon stays V.O.C for just under 12 hours so today may feel relaxed and not so stressed out. You might feel a bit aimless,if so, direct your energy at doing something artistic or that has to do with beauty. When was the last time you took a spa or “me” day and pampered yourself?

The moon moves into the sign of Gemini at 5:03 PM. Gemini makes the moon a little nervous, being the first air sign, the energy of the moon is usually a nice jolt of waves after the relaxed Taurus moon. I always think of “Why?” when I think of the Gemini moon energy, because Gemini moon wants to understand the why’s of the world. Curiosity and puzzles are fun under this moon in Gemini.

So our cute little Gemini moon makes a square to beautiful Venus in Pisces at 8:21 PM. Generally squares are thought to be “hard” aspects, meaning somewhat of a challenge, but with these two planets in a square to one another are not so hard to deal with. You might actually feel like socializing with friends and talking about beautiful stuff. Visiting an art gallery or having some friends over for a fun evening would be great ways to spend the evening.

The last aspect for today is when lady luna makes an opposition to Mars in Sagittarius at 9:42 PM. This furthers the adventurous energies but does not necessarily mean its going to be a cooperative adventure. If you are not sleepy at this time, then why not exert some energy by going for a brisk walk or doing some power yoga at time to tire yourself out.

Hessonite Garnet is a great gemstone to work with today. It brings in the energy of the earth and encourages one to step out and meet new challenges. It is also very balancing and brings about feelings of good will.

Venus-MarsFinsandFansWEBSITEnikkiSaturday March 12, 2016 – 

We have an all day long Taurus moon which is a calming influence, The moon is exalted in Taurus because is feels stable and grounded in the earth sign. And our moods are ruled by the moon which is changeable so having some stability gives us a feeling of safety.

Lovely Venus changes signs at 5:24 AM and makes her way into Pisces. Venus is exalted in Pisces and look at it this way: Venus represents love and Pisces is all-encompassing so it is the placement for unconditional, universal love. What could be sweeter than that? But Venus is soft and empathetic and loving in this sign and we should all have a soft spot in our hearts while she lingers here through April 6.

The moon makes a soft sextile aspect to Neptune which peaks at 6:55 AM. This is one of those aspects that makes it hard to get out of bed … we would much rather stay in the world of dreams than venture out into the world of reality! But take advantage of Neptune’s idealistic nature and use it to motivate yourself to reach for your dreams in real life.

The moon makes another soft sextile, this time with clever Mercury at 10:55 AM. The moon rules our moods and emotions and the planet Mercury rules our thoughts and our communication so with this harmonious aspect we feel in sync with our thoughts and feelings.

Our next aspect is a trine from the moon to Pluto later in the day peaking at 6:41 PM. Trines are considered “easy” aspects and Pluto is a “hard” planet to deal with so with this aspects helps us to emotionally deal with the more difficult things in life. We feel supported, even if the issues are darker than we might like them to be.

Last aspect of the day is a trine from the moon to Jupiter. Jupiter is generous to the point of excess so under this aspect we tend to overdo it! Too much wine or too much chocolate! Better to just have too much fun!

A great stone to work with today is opal which helps promote happy changes which assists us in reaching for our dreams.

An essential oil to use today is neroli which helps us attain a greater sense of inner peace.

Friday, March 11, 2016 –Neptune13PetalsMulti-Layers222WEBSITE

Early in the morning we have a conjunction with Mercury and Neptune that exacts at 1:01 AM. This has us thinking about our idealistic life. Like what life would be like if it was exactly what we wanted it to be. This conjunction happens in the sign of Pisces so we might be exploring the spiritual side of that idealism too. This energy peaks early on and many of us might be asleep, so it might bring about some interesting dreams. When you awaken journal them down. During the day, if you get some ideas about what an ideal life for yourself would be, journal that down too!

Next the moon in Aries comes to a sextile to Venus in Aquarius at 1:24 PM. This has us feeling harmonious and cheerful. This is a nice energy for the afternoon on a Friday! Being social and going out after work might be called for, or even being home and simply enjoying your surroundings.

The moon goes into a little void-of-course phase right after the above mentioned aspect but it only lasts about an hour an half. This would be a great time to schedule in a nap, meditation or time to just take a break from the first part of the day, preparing you for the ingress of the moon into Taurus that happens soon!

The moon moved into the sign of Taurus at 2:44 PM, this is where the moon is cozy and comfortable. Taurus enjoys the creature comforts of home and the moon here is where she feels enjoyable not rushing but rather plodding and moving along in a loving graceful manner. The moon remains in Taurus until Sunday evening when she ingresses into the sign of Gemini so enjoy a weekend of chilled out fun, eating delicious foods and spending time with loved ones.

A great gemstone to work with today is Tigers Eye, it will help you to be balanced and grounded at the same time it brings about a feeling of luxury and contentment.

Juniper Berry is a great essential oil for today, allowing the expression of the Mercury Neptune energy to come out. It also helps open the solar plexus chakra and balance our own personal energies.

Thursday March 10, 2016 –Saturn

The moon is in feisty Aries today. We feel a sense of adventure and independence under the Aries moon so do your own thing today!

Our first aspect is a trine from the moon to Saturn which peaks at 4:36 PM. With this aspect we feel like we can accomplish what we set out to do. It helps us feel solid and grounded and like we can achieve our ambitions. So you can get it done today, whatever it is you are working on!

The moon makes a square aspect to Pluto which is exact at 6:02 PM. This is the feeling of being confronted by our Jungian shadow, the darkness within. Like Luke Skywalker fighting Darth Vader in the cave only to realize it is himself behind the mask … that is the feeling this aspect brings. But confronting our shadow leads to growth, even if it is hard or scary to do so.

The moon conjoins Uranus at 8:43 PM which is like an electric shock! Wake up! Dance! Move! We may have trouble sleeping after this aspect occurs because we feel a little wired but the best thing to do is find something rhythmic and active to do to channel this energy: dance, go for a walk, play an instrument, whatever has you moving and flowing!

A great stone to work with today is strawberry quartz which helps us assimilate the energy we come into contact with at a higher plane. Rise up!

And essential oil to use today is sweet orange which assists us in feeling more confident and appreciate who it is we really are.

Venus5-PetaledFlowerNIKKIWEBSITEWednesday, March 9, 2016 –

After a pretty long void-of-course phase the moon finally ingresses into the sign of Aries but not until 2:40 PM. The void-of-course moon happens after the last ptolemaic aspect to a planet (or the sun) in our solar system. It is said to be a time of rest, rejuvenation and if you push too hard towards the opposite, you might feel a little lost or like you are wandering around aimlessly. This is also said to be a little less difficult under the Pisces, Sagittarius, Taurus and Cancer moon. Since the moon was in void-of-course since last night at 8:54 PM you might not have noticed feeling so up in the air and floaty because the moon was in Pisces.

Once the moon moves into the sign of Aries at 2:40 PM, you can expect to feel a bit if a fiery impulse. Aries moon wants to wait for no one and also wanted to march to the beat of her own drum. Blazing the trails for the rest of the zodiac to follow suit, as Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and when the moon is in the sign of Aries, its the beginning of a new cycle.

Aries moon makes a supportive trine to Mars in Sagittarius today at 4:51 PM. This is a cheerful and exciting energy. We might want to do something fun after the day starts to wind down, as all this fiery energy has us feeling invigorated. Have some fun, after all it is – Wednesday!

Garnet is a great gemstone to work with today, giving a stabilizing force to the fire of the day, but not by putting the fire out. It helps the fire turn into red hot coals instead of burn out quickly.

The essential oil that would be great for today is ginger, allowing the spice and warmth to express itself while keeping us connected to what is important to our own inner fire.

Tuesday March 8, 2016 –SunStar-likewithTriangles2WEBSITENIKKI

Oh my oh my eclipse season is back! We usually have “eclipse season” as I like to call it twice a year. This year we have our first set of eclipses in March and then we have another set of them in August and September. But today starts it’s off with the new moon in Pisces. More on that later, but for now the rest of the aspects!

The sun in Pisces opposes Jupiter in Virgo at 5:57 AM. Even though this is exact early in the morning it is something we will feel all day long. Call it generosity of spirit, or being confronted with excess, or perhaps optimistic pursuit. However it shows up in your life it is big and it is excessive! Often with oppositions these aspects show up as someone else in our life whom we are confronted with. Like maybe we meet someone who loves to gamble and we and inspired by them and maybe even some of their luck runs off on us. Or maybe we meet someone who is a philanthropist and we are inspired to likewise give. Or maybe we meet a spiritual seeker with whom we resonate and decide to seek spirit on our own as well.

The moon conjoins Neptune which peaks at 6:11 AM. This is spiritual moment, and sometimes, when we are in tune with spiritual things we tend to lose sight of reality. So the trick under an aspect like this is to regain your connection to spiritual things while maintaining some awareness of reality.

The moon makes a square aspect to Saturn which is exact at 4:29 PM. Under this aspect we feel some pressure. We can feel frustrated, or challenged, or just plain overwhelmed. But what is life without challenges?

At 5:55 PM the moon makes a sextile to Pluto which means we are in touch with a deeper sense of emotional support. This is a nice follow up to the last aspect because after the challenge we feel the relief.

The moon opposes Jupiter at 7:47 PM which feels like we are being confronted with too much of something. Too much food. Too much drink. Too much emotion. Too much!

The big deal of the day is a solar eclipse in Pisces which is exact at 8:54 PM. The solar eclipse occurs when the new moon either partially or completely blocks the sun due to the alignment of the earth, moon and sun. In this case the moon is between the earth and sun. New moons are times of power and solar eclipses are times of incredible power. If you look to see what area in your own chart this eclipse is occurring you can see where you personally will be most affected. The eclipse is at 19 degrees Pisces which has the Sabian Symbol of “A Master Instructing His Disciple”. When you think of disciples the most common image is probably of the twelve disciples and their spiritual master, Jesus Christ. But whether you see this as a Christian or you see it in some other way this idea of passing on spiritual enlightenment from master to student is a very important symbol. So the questions to ask are things like What are you teaching? What are you learning? What type of teachings are you involved in passing on through the generations? What is worthy of being passed on? Our values and our philosophy in life are more important that perhaps we always realize and this eclipse will help us to solidify our beliefs, perhaps through a moment of awakening.

After the eclipse the moon is void-of-course until tomorrow at 2:40 PM so you can look at this as a time to re-calibrate after this energy overload.

A good stone to work with today is amethyst which helps us attune to our personal spiritual wisdom.

An essential oil I would recommend today is juniper which helps us resonate with our inner visionary.

Earth-VenZoomedStarNetwork2WEBSITEMonday, March 7, 2016 –

The last of the lingering Aquarius moon makes a conjunction with Venus in the early morning hours of 3:46 AM. This has us feeling beautiful and often in some form of emotional harmony. The moon and Venus both govern over our feelings and when they are conjunct in the sky like they are this morning, it is as if they work together as one planet and bring comfortable, harmonious, creative and often artistic energy to the table. These two planets conjunct one another every month so this is not an unusual occurrence. Often on the day they are conjunct I notice people simply being nice to one another.

After this nice aspect of moon-Venus the moon slips into her void-of-course phase until she ingresses into the sign of Pisces at 2:08 PM. So we have a little over 9 hours of the void-of-course moon. So today may not be the revving Monday morning that our bosses would like it to be, but it should be calm and tranquil. Enjoy it, and don’t push the envelope, as being busy tense & hectic energies come around too!

The moon ingresses Pisces at 2:08 PM, where she is pretty comfortable! Pisces and the moon are both water elements and the moon feel nice under Pisces spell. The one caution about Pisces moon is not to overdo any sort of escapism, because that can sometimes be a downfall to this moon. If you do want to escape, then do it into something healthy like art or creativity instead of something destructive like alcohol or drugs.

Speaking of tension the moon in Pisces comes to an exact square to Mars in Sagittarius at 3:11 PM. This can have us being a bit impulsive and a little hot under the collar emotionally. If you notice some stressful feelings pop up, just know this too shall pass and before you know it. As quick as it began, it will begin to cool off again.

The last aspect for today is when the moon comes to a conjunction with Mercury in Pisces at 9:29 PM. Again when two planets are conjunct in the sky they sort of work like one planet and both vibrate to the energy of the sign they are in. Pisces has the moon and Mercury feeling a little temperamental and even possibly spacy. This can be a good energy for creativity, and thinking of things that are not so grounded. Writing from the heart is a great way to express this energy, so grab your pen and a journal and get started!

A gemstone suggested for today is sodalite, it will help get the creative juices of the mind flowing. It will also bring about a calm and peaceful feeling while the moon makes her shift from Aquarius into Pisces.

The suggest essential oil for today is geranium, which will help open the creative energies and bring some new ideas to the table.

Our lovely moon spends the day in quirky Aquarius. Aquarius loves being different. They love having a unique perspective and a creative viewpoint. Being open minded is one of the keys for today with this moon.

Our first aspect is a square from the sun to Saturn which peaks at 1:04 AM. We perhaps should have talked about this in yesterday’s report since a lot of the tension from this aspect would have been felt all day long yesterday and especially in the latter half of the day. But in general a sun-Saturn square is a challenge. It is frustration. It is feeling blocked. Now with those things also comes the feeling over overcoming, of turning the corner, of succeeding, but the square is the tension just before we are able to actually overcome the obstacle before us. This feeling should linger a bit all day today but the peak will have passed and the separating aspect is not as strong.

The moon makes a sextile to Saturn which peaks at 3:01 PM and by this time of the day we should feel over the previous aspect and once again be able to feel like our emotional needs are supported and grounded. That sense of emotional support is what the moon-Saturn aspects ultimately want to accomplish,

At 7:11 PM the moon and Uranus make a sextile aspect. Fun! Excitement! Crazy ideas! All of this can fall under this aspect. It is usually an energetic time so try to enjoy it!

The sun makes a sextile aspect to Pluto at 11:38 PM. Pluto is deep, dark and mysterious while the sun is bright and vibrant. In this sextile aspect we feel comfortable exploring the mysteries of life. It’s like we have a good flashlight and the cave, while dark, does not seem too scary. It is a good day to work out something deep that may have been on your mind for some time.

A great stone to work with today is black tourmaline which is known for it’s grounding and protective energy.

An essential oil to use today is ginger which helps us to feel connected to our own courage.

Mercury in Aquarius makes a square to Mars in Scorpio at 12:43 AM. This might have some cross or angry words come out. Try to avoid confrontation at this time. It could and would likely be a difficult to get an calm couple of words across.

Mercury then ingresses into the sign of Pisces at 5:23 AM. This has our mind in the watery realms of Pisces! Mercury being the analytical part of our mind, Mercury is not so happy in Pisces. Why you might be asking, is because Pisces is the feeling, sensing energy of the zodiac while Mercury is the intellectual thinking planet. The two do not really see eye to eye! That is OK, if you know that your mind might be a tiny bit cloudy over the next few weeks, it should be easier to digest. Rather than wonder what in the hell is going on!

The moon in Capricorn makes a sextile the mars in Scorpio at 11:05 AM. This has us giving a little motivation and energy to get things accomplished that feel important to our soul. Do yourself a favor under this energy and ask yourself if you are in a happy space doing what you love? And if not, why not? This vibration gives you some motivation to take some steps to get you there!

We then go into a 22 minute void-of-course moon phase while the moon just hangs out until she ingresses into the sign of Aquarius. This might be a nice time to get your morning meditation in!

Once the moon enters into the sign of Aquarius, you might feel a shift of energy. One that is less heavy as the last couple of days and lighter. Aquarius is an air sign and likes to feel light, inspired and fun. Enjoy the rest of the weekend with this Aquarius moon and don’t forget to let the inner weirdo out a bit. She happens to shine her best in all that glitter and sparkles under the Aquarius moon!

Mas then ingresses into the sign of Sagittarius at 9:29 PM. A lot of planetary ingresses today. This makes for an interesting energy. Mars being about our energy and placed into the sign of Sagittarius, has us feeling a bit philosophical, curious about the world at large or even planning a trip out of the city, heck maybe even the country! While Mars is in Sagittarius, you might find a restlessness with the status quo, do get out there and do something you haven’t tried before. Kickboxing, Bungee Jumping, traveling to interesting places or even waxing philosophically about the world around you.

The gemstone suggested here is brecciated jasper. This gemstone helps to keep balance while allowing the fiery energies of the day to just flow without burning out.

The essential oil for the day is Sandalwood, also allowing the earthy energies to come forward but not without a spiritual connection at the same time!

Today is a great day: March Fourth! I had a teacher a long time ago who used to always say this was the best day of the year because it was a command: march forth! The moon is in the cardinal sign of Capricorn today which echoes sentiment. Capricorn is the builder and they want to take action on their goals.

The sun and moon make a sextile at 7:32 AM. This is the waning crescent so the moon appears as a crescent in the early morning before the sun rises and then remains in sky leading the sun on his journey throughout the day before the moon sets in the west a little while before the sun does.

The moon makes a sextile to mysterious Pluto at 12:17 PM. This is an aspect where we are confronted by hidden feelings. They can be positive or negative feelings but either way they are strong enough to make us a little uncomfortable. That’s something about Pluto … always pushing us to confront anything which does make us uncomfortable whether it is our feelings, our fears, our hopes, our past or really anything for that matter.

We next have the moon making a square to Uranus 2:58 PM which again pushes us out of our comfort zone. Why don’t we try a new approach to an old problem? Or why don’t we take that risk we have secretly been wanting to take?

The moon and Jupiter make a trine aspect at 3:30 PM. This is like a reward for taking a risk … this entire day is about going for it, confronting your fears, taking some risk, and then being rewarded for having done so. It might be a stressful day but stressful in a good way, if you let yourself go for it!

A great stone to work with today is citrine which helps us push ourselves toward more success. Citrine goes well with the Capricorn moon and also with the general theme of today: go for it!

An essential oil to try working with today is basil which helps to motivate you toward achieving your goals. Don’t hold back!

Lady luna moved out of her void-of-course phase this morning at 5:01 AM and into the sign of Capricorn. This is where she feel her happiest at work. Doing something to make business or even her business better. That will affect us all and give a little motivation from the yesterdays inspirational energy. Capricorn moon is not afraid to get to work and get the job done!

The moon in Capricorn comes to sextile to Neptune in Pisces at 1:57 PM. This will give us some interesting dreams, about our ideals. In the morning, when you awaken, please do write any dreams you had down. You may use them at a later date. At the very least, if you do not dream you should sleep well!

Capricorn moon always makes me think of black tourmaline, allowing you to feel balanced and grounded while getting the job done. Try holding on to some today, this is the suggestion crystal for you!

Lavender helps one remain calm and serene, bringing in that Neptune energy in the afternoon. Use this Essential oil to help bring this energy to the table and maybe while you meditate.

Wednesday March 2, 2016 –Saturn

We have an all day long Sagittarius moon which loves exploring the unknown, whether that is lands and seas or ideas and philosophies, But with that we can expect an adventurous day!

The moon conjoins serious Saturn at 2:15 AM. This should help us sleep soundly and get the rest we need which is the foundation (Saturn) of the day ahead of us.

At 5:29 AM the moon makes a sextile to Venus. This is a feel good aspect that helps boost our mood. We want to share our good mood with others, too, and feel in harmony with our surroundings.

The moon makes a trine to Uranus which peaks at 6:54 AM. This aspect wakes us up, makes us want to jump up and dance, even! But seriously, Uranus does have a lot to do with spontaneous rhythm, both literally and metaphorically like marching to your own beat.

Our next aspect is a square from the moon to Jupiter which is exact at 8:15 AM. This aspect, combined with the last one, is basically temptation to blow off the day and do your own thing! There is a strong desire for freedom here … and if you want to play hooky who am I to judge?

The big aspect of the day is a sextile from Venus to Uranus. This is exact at 8:13 pm but it is something we should feel all day long. This is like an electric shock that makes you notice someone new … like love at first sight. Or suddenly realizing that the pretty neighbor of yours is not just pretty but amazing and you just must get to know her better! Or seeing a sexy guy at the grocery store and accidentally dropping a bag of apples because you are staring at him only to have him come over and help you pick them up. You might blush at what happens but consider it serendipity! It is an exciting aspect though so even if you don’t meet someone new or are already in a relationship you will feel the urge to shake things up in your life as well.

Our last aspect of the day is a sextile from the moon to Mercury at 9:55 PM, after which the moon goes void-of-course. This aspect has our thoughts and feelings in a state of alignment which is nice! The head and the heart don’t always see eye to eye! The void-of-course moon lasts until 5:01 AM tomorrow morning which is pretty good timing since when the moon is void-of-course it is a good time for relaxing.

A great stone to work with today is clear quartz which will help channel the Uranian energy as you wish it … although Uranus can be unpredictable! But working with clear quartz, your intentions and Uranus is a great way to set your goals in motion.

An essential oil to use today is sweet orange which is both romantic and refreshing, just like the Venus-Uranus aspect.

The moon is in fiery Sagittarius all day today! This placement of the moon has us waxing philosophically and wanting to explore the world around us. It is a nice and fun placement of the moon, so lighten up and enjoy the energies around you!

At 1:49 PM the moon in Sagittarius comes to a perfect square to Neptune in Pisces. This aspect has us asking ourselves, “What is our highest ideal?” and “Am I doing that already?” or “What sort of steps can I take to create my ideal life now?” These are all good questions and are a bit of motivation to take some steps to make your highest ideal life, reality.

In the evening the moon in Sagittarius comes to a square to the sun in Pisces at 6:11 PM. This placement of the moon and sun have us feeling a bit impatient. We are advised not to push things, especially with those of the opposite sex.

A nice gemstone for today is fire agate, it will help to bring in the strong fiery energies of the Sagittarius moon.

A good essential oil for today is Frankincense which elevates us and connects us to spiritual energy while also grounding and comforting us.
