✨ Tuesday January 31, 2017 ✨ 

The last day of January, 1 down 11 to go! The moon is in Pisces today and ingresses into Aries this afternoon. There is tension building throughout the day with a looming Mercury square Uranus that exacts tonight. Try keeping your words and communication pleasant… But before that exacts the Pisces moon comes to a square with Saturn in Sagittarius at 7:11 AM. We feel much more disciplined today than we did yesterday, so hey, let’s start Monday on Tuesday this week. The moon square Saturn has us feeling serious and determined. Try getting your work accomplished early today, you will be happy that you did.

Next the moon comes to a conjunction with Venus, both in Pisces at 12:36 PM. This is a sweet aspect that has us feeling artistic and pleasant. We don’t mind beautifying ourselves or surroundings under this transit. This is a great time to take up a new routine of doing something loving for yourself. What positive, loving things can you do for you? Make that commitment to start them while this aspect is culminating today. The moon then goes into a void-of-course phase for several hours, but alas the Pisces moon doesn’t mind void-of-course phase so much. You might want to take some time to rest and rejuvenate or keep pushing through. You will feel supported in whatever you work on doing during this time.

The moon then ingresses into the sign of Aries at 4:46 PM. Moon in Aries is quick to temper and easy to cool off, Aries doesn’t hold a grudge but it does want to lead. So blaze your way forward this afternoon as the energies of the day start to pick up under this transit. The moon remains in Aries until Thursday, so expect some energy over the next few days.

The moon comes to a conjunction with Mars, both planets in Aries at 9:52 PM. We feel active and a buzzing in the air. Frustrations can flair so try not to let yourself get wound up. If you are feeling anxious, try to do something that releases the tension and you will feel better. Finishing old tasks and getting things completed is a good way to use this energy today.

The last aspect for today is when Mercury in Capricorn comes to a square with Uranus in Aries at 10:32 PM. This can lead to sudden bursts of thought, the mind may race but not have a final destination. Remembering to be in the present moment is a good way for you to express this energy, not being fearful of the past or worrying about the future. After all, all we ever have is the present moment.

The gemstone suggestion for today is Carnelian. Carnelian will help keep the energy flowing at the fast pace it is moving today, yet it will bring some stability as well. Instead of today being a fire raging, with Carnelian at your side it will be a slow burning locomotive, that moves all the other things out of its way.

The essential oil suggestion for today is Ginger. Ginger brings about a feeling of success and determination. It helps our souls reach for that which we are seeking to learn in this lifetime.

All times are given in Eastern USA time zone.

✨ Monday January 30, 2017 ✨ 

The moon is in Pisces all day today, she comes to a conjunction with Neptune at 6:17 AM. Emotions are very sensitive at this time, you may notice that you are “in tune” with everything else too. Psychic dreams and intuitions are also something that is prominent during this conjunction. You may also feel a little impressionable so make sure you are not making really important decisions in this Monday morning. You might even feel as if you are not really ready for the new week that lays ahead. I can see some of us wanting to lay in bed and not start the day off  so quickly! Try to make a practice of morning meditation if you can and bring your awareness into Spirit to help you ease into the morning.

The Pisces moon comes to a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn at 7:28 PM. We feel much more intense during this time and we are apt to having some enlightening discussions about things that we have buried deep inside of our souls. Intense feeling may arise right now, but only so you can clear them out, so get clearing and readying yourself for this new year, new beginning! (It’s about time, because hey, it’s almost February!)

Lastly the Pisces moon comes to a sextile with Mercury in Capricorn at 10:31 PM. This has our minds feeling active and a desire to communicate things that are on our minds. Many ideas float through our minds right now, maybe too many to really apply to our present moment. Writing those things down is a great way to get them out and then work on them when you feel less buzzing with mental energy.

The gemstone suggestion for today is Blue Topaz. Blue Topaz has a vibration that allows us to think out of the daily normal routine that we usually think in. It opens energy patterns in our soul, and new awarenesses.

The gemstone suggestion for today is Opal. Opal helps us deal with the energies of a quickly moving moon that makes many changes. With those changes comes a lot of mood changes too, opal will help you to see the significance in how those changes guide you through your day.

✨ Sunday January 29, 2017 ✨ 

The moon start off in Aquarius today, she makes a sextile with Saturn in Sagittarius at 12:52 AM. This makes it easy for us to help others that are in need. We feel structured and are able to give very good advice during this time. The moon swiftly moves into her void-of-course phase after this aspect peaks. She stays in void-of-course until 11:10 AM. This is a time of rest, relaxation and enjoying the present energies. This morning may not be the most exciting morning, but that is OK. Sometimes it is in the stillness that we find peace.

The moon shifts gears and ingresses into the sign of Pisces at 11:10 AM. Lady Luna feel comfortable in the sign of Pisces. She feels emotional, happy and dreamy. Intuitions are high as well as creativity. Meditation, trances, drugs and alcohol are all things that correlate to the energy of the Pisces moon. Just make sure you are being mindful and not crossing over to a dark side under this moon. The Pisces moon wants to escape, sometimes into the most spiritual place one can find in this mundane world. Your feelings are extra sensory and your boundaries are low so make sure you keep the angel on your shoulder during the Pisces moon, and not the little devil that pops up from time to time. The moon remains in Pisces until Tuesday.

The last aspect for today is when Mercury and Pluto come to a conjunction in Capricorn at 3:21 PM. This can have us talking about things that are buried deep inside of us. You may notice a desire to just speak the things on your mind. Those things may not be the easiest to talk about during a typical day, but today they will come out with force. Try to contemplate how you can use this energy to your advantage, as Mercury conjuncting Pluto has us speaking our deepest desires. There is nothing wrong with speaking your desires but it can become messy if you have a lot of stuff hidden inside. Use this energy to release things that have been chewing on your soul, but make sure you do it in a compassionate and sober manner.

The gemstone suggestion for the day is Lapis Lazuli. Lapis Lazuli will help you communicate what is in your heart in a positive way. It is grounding and creative too. It has the power of the throat chakra in a very positive light, so it will help you to express yourself in whatever way you need to today.

The essential oil suggestion for today is Lemongrass. Lemongrass helps to clear out any stagnant energy. It also is connected to the throat chakra and brings about an ability to speak clearly. Use a few drops in a diffuser or even burning some actual lemongrass in your home will help clear anything that needs to be cleansed.

All times are given in Eastern USA time zone.

✨ Saturday January 28, 2017 ✨ 

Mars swiftly ingresses into the sign of Aries at 12:52 AM today. Mars rules over Aries and feels quite at home in this sign. Our energy is swift and quick but can be easily angered. Mars feels hot tempered sometimes, especially when someone is dawdling around. Mars wants action, and wants it like yesterday. If you find yourself getting frustrated at people that are not quite as quick as you, try to remember to have patience. Patience is not a very familiar word to Mars in Aries, so that is the lesson for you to remember under this transit. Even though we might feel easily annoyed or angered under Mars in Aries transit, we also will let that roll off our minds quickly. Holding onto a grudge is not really the style of Mars in Aries. The beauty of Mars in Aries is that you can accomplish a lot of things under this transit! So get moving and don’t stop, life is waiting to be lived. Mars stays in Aries until March 9 when he moves into the sign of Taurus.

The first aspect today is when the Aquarius moon comes to a sextile with Uranus in Aries at 6:39 PM. Creative and inspirational energy is in the air. The tapestry of vibrations feels alive and exciting. Do something you have never done before!

The last aspect is when the Aquarius moon comes to a trine with Jupiter in Libra at 10:38 PM. This is a very optimistic vibration, we feel progressive and have lots of ideas come to us during this time too. Just know that everything you start now, may not seem so delicious tomorrow, but enjoy the wave of positive feelings this aspect brings for your Saturday evening!

The gemstone suggestion today is Celestite. Celestite will help you connect with the Aquarius moon, it helps open the higher chakras so you can feel empowered and strong emotionally. It also brings in a bit of patience which is perfect for a day like today.

The essential oil suggestion for today is Angelica. Angelica helps you to feel empowered and brings about spiritual awareness. Angelica is also wonderful at helping with stamina and strength, such a perfect essential oil for Mars in Aries.

All times are given in Eastern USA time zone.

✨ Friday January 27, 2017 ✨ 

The moon is in Capricorn for the beginning part of the day, only to move into Aquarius after the first aspect. The new moon happens this evening, which marks the Chinese New Year, this year is the year of the Fire Rooster. Each Chinese New Year is given an animal and an element. This particular combination of a Fire Rooster has not happened since 1957. The short tale of the Chinese New Year this year is a year of finding things trustworthy, such as those around you – including yourself and is also a year that is dedicated to hard work and passion for that hard work. Enjoy the spotlight this year as you work hard, you will equally want to play hard too. All come with you digging into your own life and making it what you want to make it!

The first aspect of the year is when the Capricorn moon comes to sextile with Mars in Pisces at 2:18 AM. This is an exciting energy that can also lend towards nervousness. If you find yourself up late, try to do something active with yourself, allowing yourself to unwind a bit. After this aspect peaks the moon goes into her void-of-course phase for several hours, this is a good time to rest and relax.

At 3:36 AM the moon moves into the sign of Aquarius. This is Aquarius season after all, and time to let your quirky, unusual flag fly. Moon in Aquarius brings a subtle tug at our souls to just do something that we might think is weird or unusual. Why not delve into conversations or thoughts that you have never explored before. Thinking out of the box has its perks for sure. The beauty of time in the month when the Aquarius moon comes along, is that if you seem to be stuck in a rut, Aquarius moon shakes you out of it. The Capricorn moon that was here for a couple days before the Aquarius moon can have us feeling stagnant and overly pragmatic. I mean being practical and pragmatic has its place but it’s not a place to live at forever! So put on your quirky clothes, and tin foil hat because it’s time to celebrate your weirdness!

Before the peak of the new moon there is an square when Venus in Pisces comes to Saturn in Sagittarius at 12:10 PM. Iam biased a bit maybe because of my own natal chart and prominent Venus & Saturn in my natal chart, and maybe because I also named two of my angelic kitties, Venus & Saturn, but I love transits with these two planets and I will tell you why… Venus is our attraction to what is beautiful, art and what we love and Saturn is saying – hey – au natural is absolutely beautiful. One does not need to be overly done or made up in life to be absolutely gorgeous. In fact true beauty comes from what is inside and not superficial. This is what the Venus square Saturn transit is all about. Real beauty, or real love. If there is some superficial stuff going on in your life, you may have noticed an itch lately to let that stuff go. Now is a great day to actually do that. What truly is important to this equation is love. Think about how that applies to your life and how you can be more loving and real with your own self.

And finally as we have been waiting oh so patiently for this last aspect of the day. The moon and sun conjunct in Aquarius at 7:07 PM. This is the new moon in Aquarius. Happy Chinese New Year Fire Rooster! Piggy backing on the last aspect with Venus and Saturn, we are given an opportunity to figure out what is really important to you and start to make some new things happen for you in your life. I love the Aquarius new moon and not just because I have lots of Aquarius energy in my chart – but because it marks a time when we get to actually think outside of the box of our life and take some steps to make what we desire to happen, happen. What intentions surrounding the greater – you, do you want to see manifest over the next 6 months? About 1/2 hour before and after the new moon is what us astrologers call a Cazimi moon, which is very fortunate. Starting important tasks during this time is a great way to manifest. The Cazami moon means that the moon is in the same spot in the sky as the sun, it is more powerful than a regular conjunction because they are in the same latitude as each other. Medieval astrologers called a cazimi “in the heart”, so basically during this time the moon is in the heart of the sun. This is a powerful time to be “reborn” or “realign” your soul.

So tell me, what things are you birthing at this time? You could make it something grand or something as simple as changing a small habit in your life – you chose. But chose wisely as this is a powerful time to set intentions!

The gemstone suggestion for today is Rutilated Quartz. Rutilated Quartz is a wonderful gemstone to help with amplifying energy, and it brings both the moon and sun close together. Wear it or keep it near you today.

The essential oil suggestion for today is Bergamot. Bergamot is a great oil to use to attract success and prosperity to you. Being that this is a new beginning and first new moon of the calendar year – why not use Bergamot to help you bring in new awarenesses and positivity to you!

✨ Thursday January 26, 2017 ✨ 

The moon remains in business minded Capricorn all day today. Capricorn moon brings a structured vibration to the air, and that could be concerning your work life or your life in general. We are given the opportunity to take care of all of the business-type things in our lives during the Capricorn moon. Whatever things you need to do or delegate, now – is the time to get moving on that. The thing about Capricorn moon is that good ole Cappy moon doesn’t mind getting their hands dirty, because you can accomplish a lot and create a fortress of whatever you want, then manage it all. So use the Capricorn moon energy, every month to work on that empire. The new moon is coming on Friday too, so you might start to gather your thoughts and mind as to some full moon intentions or rituals if you do them.

The first aspect for today is when the moon and Pluto conjunct in Capricorn at 4:22 AM. This gives us the opportunity to contemplate the things that we have been holding deep down within us. Each month when the moon passes Pluto, it brings out a chance for us to have an emotional catharsis and let all of those pent up feelings out. So go ahead, get it out and release that which you no longer need anymore. Sometimes that can feel dramatic, so be gentle with yourself this morning if you are feeling sensitive.

The Capricorn moon then comes to  square with Uranus in Aries at 10:18 AM. This vibration brings about a feeling of stress and excitement, just remember excitement is not always pleasant. Sensory overload is no fun! So watch how you feel under this transit, and if you need to take some time out to de-stress, then go ahead and do that. Stay away from anything that stimulates you, caffeine or even something stronger – you will thank me for that later. Try not to fight against the current and actually let yourself be distracted or a little crazy; rather channel it into a feeling of inspiration if you can. So ask yourself what inspires you?

Following the Capricorn moon comes to a square with Jupiter in Libra at 2:15 PM. We feel overly exaggerated with our emotions under this transit. Don’t allow your feelings to become too impractical and excessive. Try to walk the middle path if you can. If you feel yourself being too excessive with your emotions, than just know this too shall pass.

The last aspect for today is when the Capricorn moon comes to a sextile with Venus in Pisces at 3:05 PM. Under this transit we feel in harmony with ourselves. There is a cheerful vibration in the air. It is a twist in the day where the excitement of the earlier hours calms down some and we want to relax and enjoy the present moment. Sextiles are often smooth and pleasant and the moon is our mood, while Venus is our heart. We feel at peace with the our emotions and positive during this transit. Creativity may come easy to you during this time, so what are you creative in? Do that.

The gemstone suggestion for today is Black Tourmaline. Black Tourmaline is a wonderful gemstone to allow you to feel balanced and happy at the same time. Black Tourmaline helps you keep your footing but at the same time it is not so heavy that is weighs you down. You should be able to accomplish a lot with this gemstone today. Black Tourmaline is also connected to the Capricorn moon.

The essential oil suggestion for today is Cedarwood. Cedarwood encourages us to walk along our paths in a steadfast and balanced way. It gives us that power to be strong and take it step by step to the goals you set in life. Of course, anything you do to make your life more productive is good. Even if it is something as simple as drinking enough water to hydrate your body. Each little step makes you closer to your space of living on a healing or healed path.

The first aspect today is when  the Capricorn moon comes to a sextile with Neptune in Pisces at 2:07 PM. This lends an energy towards creativity to be explored. What projects or things have you been working on, or are you looking to get started with working on? Those inner dreams and desires – explore them and give them some energy today. This aspect is a great kick start for that!

Next the Capricorn moon comes to a conjunction with Mercury in Capricorn at 6:58 PM. Expression is the vibration for this aspect! Put your thinking caps on and use your words. Expression of what is in your heart is a good way to utilize this energy so write, talk, and share ideas.

✨ Tuesday January 24, 2017 ✨ 

The first aspect today is when the Sagittarius moon comes to a sextile with Jupiter in Libra at 3:38 AM. This brings about a mood of cheerfulness. We feel cooperative and our energy is expansive. This is a nice way to begin the day! In astrology there is always many things going on simultaneously and today is no different! Often those things feel like they are complete opposites of one another, which leads me into the next aspect…

The moon and Saturn make a conjunction in Sagittarius at 3:38 PM. This brings a responsible feeling and desire to get things that are important accomplished. You feel reliable and dependable under this transit. This too is a great way to start the week.

The last aspect is when the Sagittarius moon comes to a square with Mars in Pisces at 12:33 PM. We feel impulsive and a bit rash under this transit. Try not to get too hot under the collar or annoyed at things that pop up. Once this aspect perfects the moon goes into her void-of-course phase until 5:43 PM. So this is a good time to relax and take time out for yourself if you can. Worship, prayer, even yoga, which connects body, mind and spirit are also good ways to spend the void-of-course moon time.

The moon the enters into the sign of Capricorn at 5:43 PM where she stays until Friday. When the moon is in Capricorn she is industrious and stable. The moon in Capricorn doesn’t mind instructing others on what to do either. We can get a lot accomplished during the moon in Capricorn phase, so if you have things to take care of, this is the time to do so!

The essential oil suggestion for today is Vetiver. Vetiver helps one feel calm and promotes tranquility in the face of stress. It helps one to realize one’s potential.

The gemstone suggestion for today is Mahogany Obsidian. It correlates with the Capricorn moon and will help yo keep you grounded today.

All times are given in Eastern USA time zone.

✨ Monday January 23, 2017 ✨ 

The moon is in jovial Sagittarius all day today. Looking past the horizon of your life and into things not just in the immediate circle is a way to celebrate the Sagittarius moon. The first aspect today is when the Sagittarius moon comes to a square with Neptune in pisces at 2:37 AM. This has us feeling impressionable and sensitive. It is a good to keep from making important decisions at this time, and at least postpone them for later in the day. If you are asleep during this time, you may be gifted with some interesting dreams, take note of them when you awaken.

Mercury in Capricorn then comes to a sextile with Neptune in Pisces at 4:29 PM. This has us feeling intuitive and our minds quickly racing around. There is a harmony between these two planets that feel positive and bright. Dreaming up the ideas that you want to make happen for yourself in the future is an excellent way to work with this energy. Then take some steps to make that happen.

The Sagittarius moon then comes to a trine with Uranus in Aries at 11:36 PM. We feel a spark to our emotions, there is some instability in the air. It could be translated into a fast paced energy where you are having a difficult time sleeping. If so try to do something inspirational with yourself such as reading that book you have been meaning to read.

The last aspect today is when the Sagittarius moon comes to a square with Venus in Pisces at 1!:56 PM. This is a good energy to cuddle up with a loved one or be social with other.

The essential oil for today is Lavender. Lavender will bring about a calm awareness that has us feeling alive, awake and peaceful.

The gemstone suggestion for today is Fluorite. Fluorite will help us to focus our energies on what we want to get accomplished. It will also help raise our consciousness to a level that we feel aware of the calmness we need to bring into our everyday life.

✨ Sunday January 22, 2017 ✨ 

The moon moves out of her slumbering void-of-course in Scorpio phase and into the sign of Sagittarius at 5:45 AM. Sagittarius is the most jovial of signs. Under the Sagittarius moon we want to explore our inner minds and our outer world. Take time to go on a trip, or plan on. If you can’t do either at the moment, you can crack open a book or watch a TV show about somewhere far away. This soothes the Sagittarius moon energy! The moon stays in fun and optimistic Sagittarius until Tuesday!

The first and only aspect today is when the Sagittarius moon comes to a sextile with the Sun in Aquarius at 11:30 AM. We feel shiny our inner world and outer world are in synch and running smoothly. We want to do things and get ourselves moving. This is a great time to accomplish some tasks that you feel you need to complete!

The essential oil suggestion for today is Lime. Lime is wonderful at helping you open soul and bring in positive energy. It is tart and sweet at the same time, bringing about a vibration of movement and fun.

The gemstone suggestion for today is Topaz. Topaz is great to help light the pathway of your life and open the gates to cosmic wisdom. It is an excellent emotional supporting gemstone and nurtures your spirit.

All times are given in Eastern USA time zone.

✨ Saturday January 21, 2017 ✨ 

The moon remains in deep and intense Scorpio today, try not to let the energies of the Scorpio moon weigh you down too much as the Scorpio moon can sometimes do. Rather work on bringing out the positive side of Pluto where you dig deep into your emotions to release and let go, instead of explode with emotions. The first aspect of today is when the Scorpio moon comes to a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn at 4:44 AM. Here we have enlightening discussions and intense feelings come to the surface. If you are asleep during this time those emotions could come to the surface as dreams. If you do dream, write them down when you awaken.

Moving along the Scorpio moon comes to a trine with Venus in Pisces at 6:24 AM. This aspect has us feeling relaxed and enjoyable. It is a sweet energy that wants to enjoy the day. You may not feel like doing much more than just enjoying the moment, and let’s face it – we all need time like that.

The Scorpio moon then comes to make a trine with Mars at 8:24 PM. This is a cheerful and fun energy. We feel active and like having some exciting fun, but its not the nervous kind of exciting that Mars often brings, rather it is more of happy fun energy. The moon then goes into her void-of-course phase until early morning tomorrow, so enjoy the rest of your Saturday and get a good nights sleep with the restful void-of-course moon!

The essential oil suggestion for today is Lemongrass. Lemongrass gives us an opportunity to cleanse and open our chakras. It is also cheerful and energizing.

The gemstone suggestion for today is Sunstone. Sunstone will lift the mood of anyone wearing or holding it! It is a vibrant and lovely energy for the day.

✨ Friday January 20, 2017 ✨ 

The moon remains in scorpio all day today. We have a very Pluto type day ahead of us, Pluto is a driving, motivating force and it is also the secondary ruler of Scorpio. So deep is the energy for the day! The first aspect is when the Scorpio moon comes to a sextile with Mercury in Taurus at 6:14 AM. Lots of ideas are floating around our head and we think quick on our feet during this aspect. This is a great energy to get a face paced Friday morning going!

Venus in Pisces then comes to a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn at 8:57 AM. This aspect has been brewing for a couple of days and is finally culminating and coming to a head. We feel motivated and passionate about the things that we love. We have a strong desire not to just sit at home but rather to do things out in the world. Things that mean something to us. So think about the things that you love and feel passionate about, isn’t it about time you stop thinking about those things and just start doing them? This aspect gives us the push we need to do so.

The las aspect today is when the moon in Scorpio comes to a trine with Neptune in Pisces at 1:50 PM. This is a friendly and sweet energy. We feel idealistic and romantic during this time. This is a great time to tell someone how much you appreciate them and why.

Even the really difficult stuff, it is perfect too. We may not realize it yet, but one day the reason why will be known. Frankincense helps us understand that.

All times are given in Eastern USA time zone.

✨ Thursday January 19, 2017 ✨ 

The moon and sun change signs today. So there is a shift within the matrix that gradually changes. But before we get to that, the first aspect of the day is when the moon in Libra comes to a conjunction to Jupiter also (of course in Libra) this happens early in the morning at 2:27 AM. You might feel excessive emotions during this time. The good thing about it is that usually they are optimistic and happy.

The next aspect is when the Libra moon comes to a sextile with Saturn in Sagittarius at 3:55 AM. Under the spell of this aspect we feel confident and give or receive great advice. This is actually a good time to get a consultation because the moon and Saturn help us to help those in need and do it in such a way that we are happy to do a good job with it. So if you are in need to seeking out advice from others, then use this time to do so.

Mars in Pisces then comes to a square with Saturn in Sagittarius at 4:16 AM. This is a time when you have the ability to accomplish a lot of things. Duties from others could be pushed upon you, or you can be proactive and get all your ducks in a row a quickly as possible. Mars pushes slow Saturn a bit, but remember Mars is a little bit diluted in his energy by being in Pisces at the same time. You do have the desire to accomplish things that are meaningful and important to you though.

Then, the fun part of the day begins! The sun ingresses into the sign of Aquarius at 4:24 PM. The sun in Aquarius is a much different vibration than the Capricorn sun, even though both are ruled by Saturn. Aquarius is ruled also by a secondary planet – Uranus. This month is a time to let your quirky, fun, unusual self come out of the closet. Aquarius stirs the pot of life and brings things into motion again after a long Capricorn sun stay. It does feel like the time that the sun is in Capricorn (or any other planet) – that the last few degrees seem to drag along. Capricorn has us focused on business, career, getting life in order and Aquarius comes along and busts us out of that I-have-to-do-everything phase. So enjoy doing some things this month that are unusual and different, step out of the box because, guess what? You may never know what awesome things transpire in your life once you do! The Aquarius sun has us questioning and breaking the status quo, while the month that just past, had us following the rules dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s. We now feel an erratic and unstable energy in the air. The one thing about this fixed air sign though is that under the Aquarius sun we might be all of those things – BUT once our mind is put to something the tenacity and commitment to that cause is held as steadfastly as the fixed earth sign of Taurus. The sun stays in Aquarius until February 18th when he moves into the sign of Pisces.

Shortly after that the moon ingresses into the sign of Scorpio at 5:09 PM. The moon in Scorpio is intense and powerful. Passion, jealousy, love, joy and desire take the forefront of our emotions during this time. Our emotions get deep, deep to point of possible obsession. Remind yourself as you are under the fixed sun and moon signs today that everything is not rigid. You can be flowy and not fixate yourself on ideas or someone. The moon stays in Scorpio until Sunday.

The last aspect today is when the Aquarius sun comes to a square with the moon in Scorpio at 5:13 PM. This reminds us to have patience and not to put too much pressure on ourselves or others. Try not to force anything at this time and let things just flow.

The essential oil for the day is Clary Sage. Clary Sage is helpful at clearing out old energies to bring in the new.

The gemstone suggestion for today is Citrine. Citrine will help to lighten your mood and motivate you. It brings about a positive vibration to those that wear it or have it near themselves.

✨ Wednesday January 18, 2017 ✨ 

The moon is in Libra all day today, bringing about the thoughts on how we connect with our partnerships. Remember, even if you are not in a one on one relationship, that we have many different partnerships in life. Every person we connect with on a regular basis is a partner of sorts. Think today about those people that seem a little insignificant in your life, and give thanks for them being present for you. As everyone together, creates the whole that you are experiencing. The first aspect today is when the Libra moon comes to a square with Pluto in Capricorn at 4:23 PM. This can be a demanding energy and you are asked to take it easy on yourself. Intense situations or people from the past may resurface, if so, remember that those intensities that surface are simply people in your life that are part of the whole that your life is. Thank them, bless them and if you need to step away, then do so.

The last aspect today is when the moon in Libra comes to an opposition with Uranus in Aries at 10.42 PM. Disruptions, distractions and a desire to be in the past and the present moment are the energy for this transit. We feel pulled between our emotions and our desire to be in the here and now. You could be feeling anxious and excited, as is there is some form of anticipation going on. If this feels uncomfortable to you try to remember this is a passing lunar phase and all will settle down soon enough.

The moon is in Virgo in the early hours of today, but and changes signs into Libra. But before she does that, the Virgo moon comes to a trine with the sun in Capricorn at 1:09 AM. This is a time for ease and comfort from others. Especially those of the opposite sex. After this aspect peaks there is a void-of-course moon that lasts until the moon ingresses into the sign of Libra. This is a good time to unwind and relax, if you can.

The moon then enters into the sign of Libra at 6:16 AM. The time of Libra moon is when we are thinking about our partnerships and relationships in life. We want to nurture those partnerships and enjoy them under the Libra moon. This is a time to restore balance and contingency within our relationships, by nurturing our relationships, we in turn nurture ourselves. The Libra moon has us feeling chatty and prompts us to make our surroundings beautiful. Take some time to nurture your space while you are at it, after all you are in a relationship of sorts with your environment too! The moon stays in Libra until Thursday evening.

The last aspect for today is when the Libra moon comes to a square with Mercury in CApricorn at 1:37 PM. You could be prone to worry or stress during this time. Anxiety and restlessness are ways that this energy can translate for you. If you are feeling anxious, take some time to remember that this too shall pass. And remember to let go and let God take over, because ultimately you are not the one in the driver’s seat!

The gemstone suggestion for you today is Coffee Jasper. Coffee Jasper brings the energy of the earth to the day. The earth is stable and grounding, and this will help any nervous feelings come to rest.

The essential oil suggestion for today is Patchouli. Patchouli will help you also feel connected to the earth and true to your heart.

The moon is in Virgo all day today too! Busy yourself doing things, tidying up, organizing, planning… All these things are lovely under a Virgo moon. Lady Luna connects with several planets today bringing opportunity for changing moods and things coming up from the past. Happy Monday, and of course happy holiday for those of us in the USA. Happy Martin Luther King Jr day.

The Virgo moon first comes to a trine to Pluto in Capricorn at 3:40 AM.  This has us feeling emotions surface from the deep. We are searching for pleasure and or romance. Just make sure if it is someone from the past that pops up – that you actually want to be with that person!

Next the moon in Virgo comes to an opposition with Mars in Pisces at 2:02 PM. This is a time of high energy, we feel like moving along fast, but with little direction. Try to keep yourself focused and do something to spend that energy instead of getting frustrated with it.

The last aspect we have the Virgo moon coming to a square with Saturn in Sagittarius at 5:13 PM. WE feel disciplines and serious. Hard work is not really hard, it is just work. This might be getting towards the end of the day, but you feel a push of motivation during this transit.

The gemstone suggestion today is Chrysocolla. Chrysocolla is a wonderful gemstone for helping clear out any negative energy, releasing it and balancing your own self. It is one of the gemstones, that if polished, you should have it touching your skin.

The essential oil suggestion for today is Eucalyptus. Eucalyptus helps clear, balance and center yourself. It is also a healing essential oil for those that want to heal energetically or physically.

 Lady Luna is in Virgo all day today. Busy yourself taking care of the little things that you need to care for with yourself. The cleaning, the washing, your health. The first aspect of the day is when the Virgo moon comes to a trine with Mercury in Capricorn at 1:59 AM. You may find yourself being invited to an unexpected gathering or social invitation somewhere. Enjoy this morning’s social ease.

The next aspect is when the Virgo moon comes to an opposition with Neptune in Pisces at 5:08 PM. This is not a good time to make decisions, your mind is a bit cloudy and you are impressionable during this transit. If you can postpone any important things until tomorrow that would be best.

The last aspect is when the Virgo moon comes to an opposition with Venus in Pisces at 10:58 PM. This has us feeling excessive emotions. Try not to direct your energy into draining yourself if you feel emotional, just try to ride the wave of it and let it flow. Otherwise life could be challenging emotionally for you right now.

The gemstone suggestion for today is Rose Quartz. Rose Quartz helps you to be loving and also brings about a loving vibration to wherever it is placed.

The essential oil suggestion for today is Sweet Orange. Sweet Orange brings out the sweetness in your soul. You want to nurture and love yourself today and Sweet Orange will help you do that.

This is a split moon day where the moon changes signs, but before she does that there is a 12 hours void-of-course moon. Expect today to feel like you want to do something, but maybe things just keep you from succeeding. Like roadblocks keep pushing in front of you. Just roll with it. But before that the Leo moon makes a trine to Uranus in Aries at 6:26 AM. We feel an electric surge of inspirationally creativity in the air. You might find yourself up and creatively making a healthy meal for yourself! Why not, healthy habits are good to begin under this transit. Love and care for your body – it is the only one you have got!

A little later the Leo Moon comes to a sextile with Jupiter at 9:21 AM. You are feeling cheerful and inspired by this boost of energy that you have during this time. Why not spend this time doing things that make you feel good? Or extending yourself out in the world – however you do it, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, G+…. The vibe is high for that right now, have fun!

Next the Leo moon comes to a trine with Saturn in Sagittarius at 10:17 AM. Saturn makes us want to accomplish something, to get something completed. And Saturn doesn’t mind taking the time to do it. Saturn is patient and saying, yeah, remember that project you have started and need to accomplish? You need to get that out. Yes, dust it off, open it up and work on it. You will feel so good when it is done! It is particularly helpful if you get an old project you have not finished out to work on, rather than a new one – because, after this aspect peaks. The moon is void-of-course all day! What a perfect time to do it.

The moon finally comes out her void-of-course phase at 10:52 PM. She slides into the sign of  Virgo and this is where we feel our most persnickety. We want to fuss about things around the home and clean our environment. The moon in Virgo with all the other planets moving forward and Mercury in Capricorn is a good time to do some early spring cleaning! Out with the old, so the new can return and flourish!

The essential oil suggestion for today is Lemon. Lemon sparks imagination and zaps us with a nice pulse of energy. This will help the inspiring energy of the day and if we get the clean bug later in the day from the Virgo moon!

The gemstone suggestion for today is Moss Agate. Moss Agate brings about a calmness when one feels stress of anxiety. Moss Agate helps ground us to the earth while doing this. It is connected to the energies of the Virgo moon.

Today the moon is in Leo all day today. A love of the dramatized might be on the table, but since Lady Luna is not aspecting anything, that may be toned down. Today is a day with no aspects, and therefore a “free day”. It is a peaceful and calm day but don’t worry things get moving and shaking again very soon. All of the planets are moving direct annnnd it is Friday the 13th! (I love Friday the 13th, my daughter & mother were born on one 🙂 ) So try to enjoy the calm and not get overly worked up over any situation after all it is Friday!

The gemstone suggestion is Clear Quartz. Clear Quartz brings clarity to the heart and soul.

The essential oil suggestion for today is Clary Sage. Clary Sage is a great way to clear ane cleanse out our environment, so get things cleared out before the next wave of things come.

✨ Thursday January 12, 2017 ✨ 

The vibe today goes from emotional and deep with the full moon in Cancer to a sweet, idealistic day with Venus conjunct Neptune. Mercury goes back into Capricorn and the moon also switches signs, all while having a large part of the day where the moon is void-of-course but in Cancer so the void-of-course phase is not necessarily so boring. But, before I get to that, the first aspect for today is when the Cancer moon comes to a square with Uranus in Aries at 3:34 AM. This aspect has us feeling excited and even erratic. It could be difficult to sleep during this time so if you awaken early or stay up late – try to find something inspirational to do with yourself. I think that when we find ourselves awake very early in the day, it is your soul calling you to a higher awareness. So try to find some way to channel your nervous energy this morning.

The next aspect is when the Cancer moon comes to a square with Jupiter in Libra at 6:07 AM. This has us feeling a bit impractical and our emotions are high. An impractical vibe is felt and we could be wishing to achieve that which is not so easy or probable. This is an interesting lead up to the full moon!

The next aspect then is when the moon in Cancer and the sun in Capricorn are opposing each other at 6:34 AM. This is the Full Moon! The full moon brings a time for us to let go and release those things that are not working for us, so that in the next several weeks while the moon is coming to being new, you can embrace things that are new. Take care of your soul in any way that you connect with Spirit, your home, your family. Ask yourself what things nurture and what things do not. Release those things that do not nurture you and make some room for new things to appear in your life. This is a period of culmination and release so use it wisely. After the peak of the full moon the moon goes into a void-of-course phase for 12 and half hours. The moon is in Cancer so it does still bring emotions to the forefront but it is still probably best not to start new things. Rather take this time to do that soul clearing or clearing out your space.

Mercury then enters into the sign of Capricon at 9:03 AM. Mercury in Capricorn has our minds and way of communication focused more on the business side of ourselves. Are we feeling accomplished in our work life? If not, this is a great time to start to think about how you can focus yourself and get things done. Mercury in Capricorn gives us a chance to get all our little ducks in a row concerning our work life so take advantage of it while you can.

Venus then comes to a conjunction with Neptune in Pisces at 4:54 PM. Venus and Neptune are romantic and creative. You may want to spend some time with your loved one today and enjoy the connection that the two of you share. Make a nice meal and pamper each other, there is no other transit that is as sweet as this one is! We want to live in a sort of honeymoon phase during this time. If you are not in a relationship you might be contemplating what an ideal relationship would be for you. That is a great way to spend this time. Also remember the best relationship that you should be in, is the one you have with yourself!

The last thing for today is when the moon moves into the sign of Leo at 7:08 PM. Leo moon is dramatic, loves to be recognised and enjoy’s being the center of attention. Do things to get yourself out into the world and socialize with other people. The moon stays in Leo until Saturday so enjoy!

The gemstone suggestion for today is Bloodstone. Bloodstone will help you to walk an easy path with yourself during the day, and not feel too emotional. Bloodstone is also a wonderful cleanser of negative energy.

The essential oil suggestion for today is Sandalwood. Sandalwood brings peace and calm to the air and allows you to tap into your spiritual side. It is grounding and healing for emotions.

✨ Wednesday January 11, 2017 ✨ 

The heavens are busy today with the moon in Cancer so everyone is apt to be emotional and a tad on the moody side. Don’t worry though, as I always say, this is a phase and this too shall pass. There is an electricity left stirring in the air since yesterday and the early morning hours feel very deep.

The first aspect happens when Mars in Pisces comes to a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn at 2:15 AM. This has us feeling a bit invincible and, well, we might be right. We are given the power to accomplish a lot for the days leading up to and past this aspects peak. The one thing I will say, is make sure you accomplish good things for yourself, not crazy or wild. Also things that have been in the past, might surface – such as old friends or things in your subconscious. Those things would be something that just happens “accidentally”. If that has or is going on, embrace it because you and your old friends old memories have some karma that is unfinished. That karma could be positive or negative – you decide how it plays out. Just enjoy the present moment with those people/memories/things in mind and all should be well.

The Cancer moon then comes to a trine with Venus in Pisces at 7:51 AM. This has us feeling beautiful and brings about a desire for us to make things beautiful. Desire to do things with your home or beautifying your life is something that this transit will have crossing your mind.

Next the moon in Cancer comes to a trine with Neptune in Pisces at 10:06 AM. We feel idealistic and a bit floaty with our dreams to make something happen with ourselves. This is a time that is energetically nice, but not driven, so if you feel as if you are simply floating on through – enjoy it. As you and I both know, life is not always like that.

The Cancer moon then comes to a trine with Pluto in Capricorn at 10:06 PM. This is a feel good aspect that likely involves those things or people from the past that I mentioned above. Enjoy it, as “feel good” and Pluto is not always put in one sentance together!

Next the Cancer moon comes to a trine with Mars in Pisces at 11:08 PM. There is an exciting vibe in the air, it feels sweet and emotional but at the same time exciting and fun. This is a good time to think about the full moon that happens tomorrow morning and gather your thoughts or intentions for that before you rest for the night. Full moons are powerful times to release things that we have been bound to and are in itself a completion of a cycle so think about what you are letting go of and what you want to draw into your life next. Let go of the old so the new can come in… But more on the full moon tomorrow!

The last aspect for today is when the sun in Capricorn comes to a square with Jupiter in Libra at 11:43 AM. This has us feeling philosophical about our lives. It would be a good time to apply some of that philosophy that you know to our own lives (as we all know some). If you happen to not know philosophy then it wouldn’t be a bad idea to research ways you can live a better and happier life. The vibration here is between the essence of you and your higher knowledge so why not make that work for you in a positive light.

The gemstone suggestion for today is Malachite. Malachite is a great gemstone for helping you feel at ease with your decisions and life and will absorb any negative energy around. If you keep it on you, then you might want to remember to cleanse it often because it does absorb negative energy really well but needs that cleansing to keep in tip top shape.

The essential oil suggestion for today is Tuberose. Tuberose helps us come to terms with things that were in our past and bring light and positive energy to the forefront. This particular essential oil reminds me of Pluto, where it transforms our past into something new. It is much like alchemy and very healing.

Today has a Uranian vibe to it, impulsive, inspirational and a high energy that sort of twists and turns. Lady Luna is switching signs today, she is in Gemini for the first part and then moves into where she rules – Cancer. Be prepared for some shifts and changes today, it is not just a progression of energy today, rather more like a bunch of things hitting you at once. That isn’t always bad, as long as you have your bat and are ready to go up to the plate!

The first aspect today is when the Gemini moon comes to a sextile with Uranus in Aries at 2:36 AM. You may find deep inspirations popping up out of nowhere. Thinking outside of the box and being creative is a great way to spend this energy. Often when there are Uranus aspects in the day, it feels like we are jolted with energy. Try to channel your energy into something positive for yourself, instead of letting it make you feel anxious. If this is your sleeping time, then you might not be very tired either.

The next aspect is when the Gemini moon comes to a trine with Jupiter in Libra at 4:53 AM. This bring in the energy of being optimistic and have progressive ideas. If you find yourself awake at this time, you might read that intellectual book on zen or astrology or whatever it is you stuck on your shelf and haven’t gotten to yet. One that expands the mind. If you don’t have any books like that, the internet is fingertips away.

The Gemini moon then comes to an opposition with Saturn at 5:32 AM. This is like a monkey wrench in the Uranian party for today, the moon and Saturn want us to feel responsible and efficient. If it feels like you have been neither of those things, then today may be that you kind of desire the freedom from responsibility all while feeling bogged down by it. This is a paradox, so just know it is within you (especially today) and go with the flow.

Finally the juicy part to today is when the sun in Capricorn comes to a square with Uranus in Aries at 11:22 AM. This is the electricity and spontaneous feeling we feel coursing through us today. It may be intense and come in spurts to you also, but you can handle it because you know what is going on. Remember to be steady and work on keeping balance while the universe tries to toss a fast one in your direction. Also remember that when the fast one comes your way, you can toss them back as quickly as it got to you, so throw softly! Uranus really wants you to be in the present moment, not thinking about the past, but here.. and, now.. and when everyone is feeling that, some deal with it difficulty and some go more with the flow. Expect some people to feel a charge of anxiety or stress today. If you expect it, then when it happens it’s easier to cope with.

Next Gemini moon comes to an opposition with Mercury in Sagittarius at 4:38 PM. Feeling a little temperamental and off center are you? Well this should make it more! These two planets at odds with each other are pulling our minds against our emotions so you might be feeling like you just need a break and are done with the day. If that is the case, don’t worry, after this aspect makes it peak Lady Luna comes to a short void-of-course phase and gives us a moment to breathe.

Lastly the moon moves into the sign of Cancer at 5:49 PM and we start to feel a little more at ease. We might not be feeling 100% there because tomorrow there are some powerful aspects at bay, but at least the moon is happy. Cancer moon is the soft mother archetype. Loving, generous and kind. Your emotions are ruled by the moon so you should be feeling a little more emotionally in tune for the rest of the evening. The moon stays in Cancer until Thursday when she ingresses into Pisces.

The gemstone suggestion for today is Rhodonite. Rhodonite is helpful at allowing you to be open hearted at the same time living in the present moment. It also has a vibration of keeping us grounded so this is a positive stone for our Uranian day!

The essential oil suggestion for today is Amber. Amber inspires and balances us. It reminds us that the circle is the key to life because everything comes around in time. Knowing that this feeling you feel is not unfamiliar, and you will feel it once again.

The moon is in Gemini all day today, so expect things to be moving swiftly along. There are a lot of energies building up for this week ahead, so try to keep yourself grounded and centered. The Gemini moon connects with three planets today in a square aspect, and its as if each one of them is a wave of emotions that culminated, peaks and wanes as the next one starts to culminate. Expect the mood of the day to continue to shift, even more later on into the week.

The first aspect for today is when the Gemini moon comes to a square with Venus at 3:30 AM. This has us feeling the first wave of energy that the moon has made since Saturday night. Our emotions and heart are beating strongly under this transit. There is a pulse we feel, one that is relaxing and feels comfortable. Enjoy the early morning time.

The next aspect is when the Gemini moon comes to a square with Neptune in Pisces at 9:18 AM. This has us feeling impressionable by others and maybe not even sure of our judgement. If you can postpone making any huge decisions until at least the afternoon today, it would be best. Clarity is not so easy under this transit.

The day winds us up with the Gemini moon coming to a square with Mars in Pisces at 7:40 PM. Emotional impulses are in the air and surrounding us. Try not to let things get you overworked mentally or emotionally at this time. Repeat to yourself “This too shall pass.” if you feel to excitable about something.

The gemstone suggestion for the day is Jasper. Jasper is helpful at keeping balance within our spirit and not allowing ourselves to get too wound up. At the same time it brings a calmness to wherever it is placed or whoever is wearing it. There are many types of Jasper, so you chose which to spend your time with today!

The essential oil suggestion for today is Sweet Orange. Sweet Orange, brings a sweetness and vibrancy to the air. It energizes us in a soft and positive way.

✨ Sunday January 8, 2017 ✨ 

Twas the night before Mercury went station->direct and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The moon is snuggled in Taurus and in her lazy void-of-course phase, we feel relaxed and like just enjoying the remainder of the day. Because in the morning the energies start to shift when Mercury turns direct we start to get our energies back! The chatting will return and the clearer understanding of what everyone is saying will resume.

Mercury makes its move from station to direct motion at 4:43 AM – finally! Each time frame of Mercury retrograde has us learning how to cope with it better, even when things seems hectic and a bit crazy. Learning to go within with your thoughts and mind is healing for you. If you take the time to do that during the Mercury retrograde phase, and learn to be an observer rather than a reactor – you grow in ways that can help you in your life on a regular basis. Mercury retrograde teaches us to think before we speak. It is a powerful tool we are given a few times a year, to be more silent with our words and work on that inner awareness and consciousness that is in all of us. Instead of fearing it, seeing it as a phase to travel through it helpful for working with this particular vibration.

The moon comes out of her slumbering void-of-course in Taurus phase, and into the sign of Gemini at 5:06 PM. Gemini is the multi-tasker of the zodiac. We can feel a bit restless and busy all the time. Our moon moves to conversations, word play, puzzles and communication in any way. The moon stays in Gemini until Tuesday so enjoy socializing and connecting with others during this phase.

The gemstone suggestion for today is Dravite. Dravite is wonderful at helping you release old patterns so you can embrace the now and present moment. Dravite is also known as Brown Tourmaline. Although I think it is a bit softer in its delivery than Black Tourmaline, it is very much like it. When we work with the higher realms, and dig our selves into our spiritual side, if we neglect the grounded part of ourselves we find and imbalance. Dravite will help you to balance that out. It is a perfect stone for the energies of the day.

The essential oil suggestion for the day is Patchouli. Patchouli is wonderful at helping you feel centered and connected to the earthy realms as well. It is help ease the transition from Mercury retrograde to Mercury direct.

The moon is in well rooted and stable Taurus all day today. This is a time when we feel well grounded and loving towards those we especially love. Share some love and connect with a loved one during this time, have a nice meal and enjoy each others company. You will be happy that you did. The first aspect today is when the Taurus moon comes to a sextile with Neptune in Pisces at 7:56 AM. We feel intuitive and creative under this aspect. Think about old creative projects or things you need to do around the house – and take care of those things today.

The next aspect is when the Taurus moon comes to a sextile with Mars in Pisces at 3:57 PM. This can have us feeling a little excited and possibly nervous, like that anticipation feeling we get when something is going on, good or bad. Exercising or doing something that exerts yourself a little, is a great way to spend this energy.

Next the Taurus moon comes to a trine with Pluto in Pisces at 8:03 PM. This has us searching for pleasure and or romance, just make sure if it is someone from the past that pops up. That you actually want to be with that person!

The last aspect is when the Taurus moon comes to a trine with the sun in Capricorn at 9:23 PM. WE feel at ease with each other and positive about our relationships. This is particularly true for those that are of the opposite sex as us.

The gemstone suggestion today is Chrysocolla. Chrysocolla is a wonderful gemstone for helping clear out any negative energy, releasing it and balancing your own self. It is one of the gemstones, that if polished, you should have it touching your skin.

The essential oil suggestion for today is Eucalyptus. Eucalyptus helps clear, balance and center yourself. It is also a healing essential oil for those that want to heal energetically or physically.

Today the moon switches signs, so moods are changing and energies shift. Hold on to yourself because all is not bad, in fact it feels like a nice day today! The first aspect happens early in the morning when the Aries moon comes to an opposition with Jupiter in Libra at 1:06 AM. We are seeking some form of enjoyment during this time, even if the enjoyment happens to be you cozying up in bed with your partner or pillow. Jupiter and the moon have us feeling at ease and feeling of grand emotions. This feeling is not always based in reality but it is the vibe of the early morning hours!

Next the Aries moon comes to a trine with Saturn in Sagittarius at 1:37 AM. This has us being disciplined and not afraid to tackle things that need to get done. If this is your sleep time you might notice yourself wake up early or go to bed late because you are busy working on things. You do not mind the work though, as you realize everything becomes accomplished through persistence and patience.

The Aries moon then comes to a trine with Mercury in Sagittarius at 1:41 PM. This could be a time when you feel as if you are ready to make decisions and your mind is in synch with your emotions. Just be aware that Mercury is still in retrograde and it might not be the perfect time to act upon those decisions just yet. After this aspect peaks lady luna goes into a short void-of-course phase for about an hour and half. If you can sneak a nap in, go for it. If you are pounding away at work, then try to work on things that are already started and leave the new stuff for next week when Mercury is direct.

The moon then enters into the sign of Taurus at 3:18 PM. The Taurus moon has us feeling solid and sensual. We don’t feel hurried or stressed out either. We are happy when things are beautiful and earthy. Things to do under the Taurus moon are, making some healthy meals, admiring or creating lovely art, taking care of your resources and enjoying the company of those you love. The moon stays in Taurus until Sunday evening when she ingresses into the sign of Gemini.

The last aspect today is when the Taurus moon comes to a sextile with Venus in Pisces at 10:08 PM. A cheerful feeling is in the air, there is harmony around you and all seems to be meshing together quite nicely. Affection is a great way to express this energy so grab your honey or furbaby and snuggle up!

The gemstone suggestion for today is Rhodochrosite. Rhodochrosite will help you to feel the ease and calm of the day. Giving you an opportunity to express love to others and especially yourself.

The essential oil suggestion for today is Bergamot. Bergamot is sweet, joyful and brings positive energy to the soul. It also helps one laugh and feel good inside, a perfect compliment for the energies of the day and kicking your weekend off right!

The moon is in ambitious and active Aries all day today. We feel motivated and active under the Aries moon. The one thing that is important to caution yourself about is being selfish. Aries tends to not always see the other person’s side. When talking about a lunar transit like this – you might not be seeing the other person’s side, or visa versa. Either way, it’s always important to not be selfish so do something self-less for someone else during this time. That will help you counteract the desire to just see life from your angle. The moon remains in Aries until Friday at 3:18 PM.

The Aries moon comes to a square with the sun in Capricorn at 2:47 PM. This is a time when we need to remember to have patience. Something that Aries and Capricorn know little about! It can feel tense, especially with those of the opposite sex too. So practice your zen and try not to let any nerves get too frayed!

Next the Aries moon comes to a square with Pluto in Capricorn at 5:16 PM. This has us feeling a big obsessive about our emotions. Things that we feel were buried a long time ago could resurface, but they are resurfacing for a good reason. So we can let them go and release any sort of compulsive tendencies we have regarding them. This is not always easy, but it is a start towards healing the past, and the past is often times what holds us back.

The last aspect today is when the Aries moon comes to a conjunction with Uranus, also in Aries at 11:15 PM. This has us feeling alert and inspirational. Making plans during this aspect can prove to be unrealistic so hold off on doing that if you can. Besides Mercury is still in retrograde so it is better not to make new plans anyhow!

The essential oil suggestion for today is Lavander. Lavender is a great essential oil to help calm any frayed nerves and bring about a calm, healing energy.

The gemstone suggestion for today is Lepidolite. Lepidolite is a calming and soothing stone, it brings about an awareness that the heart and mind is connected and balances them out. If you can, keep a piece of Lepidolite touching your skin, that is even better. Such as a piece of jewelry that the stone actually touches your skin, because there are trace minerals in Lepidolite that will help you relax into the day even further.

The big news in the sky today is when Merucry, still in its retrograde phase: ingresses back into Sagittarius at 9:17 AM. Think back about what was going on in your mind on the first few days of December and the last few days of November last year. Those things you are going to go over again, mentally until Mercury is direct again on Sunday. A lot of the time the things you go over will be to release any attachment or re-organize or re-do something that you began then. If you started some projects back then, you might pick them back up. Since this goes on until Sunday when Mercury goes direct again – and then once again – you will revisit the last 3 weeks but this time, under the third passing of Mercury – things should feel more straightened out. Or you might be able to actually accomplish those things you begin 3 weeks before Mercury went into retrograde! Do you see how that works? The 3 weeks before Mercury is retrograde, what us astrologers call “the shadow period”, because as Mercury then goes retrograde, it backs up and covers those 3 weeks of time. Then when Mercury turns direct it goes over that time again. The 3 weeks after Mercury is direct again is also the shadow time. I personally do not see these times as intense as the actual retrograde time can be. I see them as opportunity times to fix or return to those things initially started!

Next the Pisces moon comes to a square with Mercury in Sagittarius at 11:14 AM. This can have us feeling worrisome, our emotions seem frayed or challenging. Just know this aspect only lasts a few hours on each side of the peak of it and this too shall pass. This can have us lamenting over the past, especially whatever was going on in early December last year. Just remember as you worry about the past, you are not enjoying the present. If you can change something about it, or extend forgiveness if that is needed. Then you win. If you stew in worry or are indecisive and restless -you lose because you miss out on the present moment.

The moon then quickly moves into the sign of Aries at 11:30 AM. That means we had a 6 minute void-of-course moon from the last aspect I talked about above (moon square Mercury at 11:14 AM) until the moon ingressed into Aries (at 11:30 AM). We probably won’t feel a thing either! I just wanted to mention it, for those of us that didn’t understand what the void-of-course moon means. It is the time when the moon makes her last major ptolemaic aspect to a planet or the sun, until the moon switches (ingresses) into the next sign. Sometimes these void-of-course moon phases can last a day and seem to drag on but since this one is 6 minutes long, it won’t amount to much if anything at all.

The moon in Aries has us feeling energetic and we want to put some action to whatever it is we are working on. Try to explore things around you, either physically by going out and being social, or on the internet if you are more of a stay at home person. Aries is thought to be the initiator of the zodiac and under the Aries moon we are generally not afraid to be spontaneous and just have fun. Often a lot of contemplation is not put into our hearts during Aries moon, we just fly by the seat of our pants. So hold on and have some fun under the Aries moon. The moon stays in Aries until Friday when she ingresses into the sign of Taurus.

The essential oil suggestion for today is Cedarwood. Cedarwood helps to bring spiritual awareness and courage to gain wisdom on when to push forward and when to relax. Since the moon is in Aries most of the day, we may not have that discernment as easily as we usually do. So this would be an excellent essential oil to help guide with that and keep you grounded while enjoying yourself on the earthly plane!

The gemstone suggestion for today is Aragonite. Aragonite is a wonderful stone to help you feel connected with others and reminds you that you and others are equally as important as each other. Sometimes we have a “me first” attitude under the Aries moon, and Aragonite helps you to see that we all need to be first sometimes and how that balance of interconnectedness is so beautiful.

Today is another one of those Piscean days! The moon is in Pisces all day, so is Mars and  Neptune. The South Node & even Chiron are also in Pisces too! Venus makes her way into the sign of Pisces this morning, but before she does… The moon makes a conjunction with Mars at 1:36 AM. During this transit we feel active and we want to get tasks accomplished. This is the middle of the night for those of us in the Western world at least, so you might notice yourself awakening early or staying up late to get things done. If you feel restless, lean back on your spiritual side and do whatever spiritual practice you engage in to get yourself to rest. Even if you do not sleep a whole bunch at least you can connect with the divine.

Venus then ingresses into the sign of Pisces at 2:47 AM, where she stays until late February. Venus is happy in Pisces, she brings nurturing and positive action to the forefront of our hearts. Things to do while Venus is in Pisces is to, worship your soul as the part of the divine that it is or engage in some artistic therapy – basically do something that feeds your soul, mind and body. When Venus was in Aquarius we felt the desire to reach “outside of the box” that we are usually in. Now that Venus is in Pisces we desire to connect with the divine. It doesn’t matter how you love and show honor and respect for the divine, but starting or deepening your already present spiritual practice is an excellent way to honor the transiting Venus in Pisces. The new year is here and it is time to start new habits that are positive for yourself anyhow. So why not work on a deeper connection with Spirit, however it is you personally do that. Through religion, mudras, prayer, meditation, art or even mantras – the list is as endless as we are. The way that feels right to you is the path you  personally, should walk.

The Pisces moon then comes to a sextile with the sun in Capricorn at 5:13 AM. This creates a pattern between the moon, sun and Mars. This pattern has us feeling active and as if we are geared up and ready to take on any sort of situation that we are handed. This early morning (for half of the world anyway) is an opportunity to feel motivated towards connecting with your soul, such as I mentioned above with Venus’s ingress into Pisces. How about lighting a candle and saying a prayer to vow and work on the things that you have always wanted to get accomplished but never had the chance to do so. If you do awaken early, use this time to look at it as a blessing from God to give you the time to do some of this spiritual work, that you may not always have time in your usual life to accomplish – instead of being frustrated because you didn’t get enough sleep. A simple change of mind from something seemingly negative, to something positive as I just mentioned, is a perfect start!

Next the Pisces moon comes to a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn at 12:07 PM. Mixing Pluto and the moon in this pattern with Venus and Mars makes us have drive to get these things done! I can see some of us having enlightening discussions and feeling driven to accomplish our goals. This can create a plethora of intense emotions, so make sure you stay focused on the tasks you make for yourself!

Next Mercury in Capricorn comes to a sextile with Venus in Pisces at 2:41 PM. This is a lovely energy, we feel, think and are quite emotionally pleasing during this time. It feels like work that we need to accomplish is easy to get done and as if the rest of the world is also following suit by being calm, happy and positive. This aspect has been culminating over the last few days and will wane down slowly over the next few days. Take some time to work on putting your mind and heart in the same order. Sometimes we think something but feel something different. This aspect has us thinking and feeling along the same wavelength, so take advantage of it while you can!

The last aspect is when the Pisces moon comes to a square with Saturn in Sagittarius at 8:33 PM. We feel more disciplined and serious during this time. It is not such an energetic time as the morning was, so you might retire early and get some rest. If you do stay awake you could accomplish a lot in a little amount of time, because Saturn cuts to the chase and makes us less frivolous and floaty which the Pisces energy of the day is prone to.

The essential oil suggestion for today is White Birch. White Birch is a protective essential oil, clearing up old negative vibrations and protection against new ones coming in. This oil has a very strong ability to help us focus. The feeling of being able to focus is important when energies are very drifty like today.

The gemstone suggestion for today is Apatite. Apatite will help open your heart and soul up to the divine. It enhances our natural ability to communicate with nature. After all nature is the real magic, right? I mean, have you ever watched a flower bloom or a tree give fruit, a tree that once was a tiny seed… If that isn’t magic, I surely do not know what is. Communication with nature is the best way to enhance your soul and Apatite helps that happen.

The moon begins in the sign of Aquarius today as she comes to a conjunction with Venus also in Aquarius at 2:59 AM. This is a time when we feel beautiful and pleasant. Cuddles and snuggles sound perfect if you happen to be awake. Grab your sweetheart, or pet, or your pillow ~ and cuddle away! If that is not possible for you, doing something loving for yourself even if it’s just having some positive thoughts for yourself this morning will be a great way to spend this energy. The moon then comes to a void-of-course phase right after the peak of this aspect, so rest or simply working on what you have going on in your life right now is a great way to spend the next few hours.

The moon then ingresses into the sign of Pisces at 4:57 AM, this is where she stays until Wednesday. The moon in Pisces can have us feeling foggy and unclear about certain things. Pisces moon makes me think of someone walking through a thick haze and instead of “seeing” their way through it – they “feel” their way through it.
The moon in Pisces has us feeling more emotional and in touch with the intuitive or psychic side of ourselves. Yes – I believe we are all psychic to some extent or another.
Pisces moon is a great time to work on developing your intuition or psychic side. Why not pick up some tarot cards, the i-ching or even try tuning into your friends (with permission) thoughts and feelings. Can you sense them correctly? The one thing about Pisces moon is that along with the connection we feel with the unseen, we also feel connected to bringing those illusions or delusions to ourselves. Therefore we might feel like drinking or if you are prone to using drugs or other substances to haze yourself out. This might be the influence to put us in that mood. It is always better to connect with the Spirit world (God) rather than drinking Spirits (alcohol) during the Pisces moon transit. Keeping that in mind and your Spirit, emotions and soul in mind is important.

The Pisces moon comes to a sextile with Mercury in Capricorn at 7:58 AM. Here we think quick on our feet and feel a lot more grounded than we will later on in the day. So try to get things you need to accomplish today, completed as early as possible. I know it is the first Monday of the year, so just do what you can. You will feel the mental capacity to do that during this transit. You may also have more ideas come to your mind during this time, than you are able to actually accomplish, write them down!

Last the Pisces moon comes to a conjunction with Neptune in Pisces at 10:56 PM. A conjunction is where the two planets, in this case the sun and Neptune are “in the same spot in the sky” which isn’t technically accurate but from our geocentric perspective it is. So if we could look out and into the Heavens we would see the moon and Neptune in the same spot. That is what it means when two planets are in a conjunction aspect. These two conjoin and it feels like all of our past desires and emotions are brought to the surface. This is not in a hard way, like it could be cathartic with the moon and Pluto, but with the moon and Neptune it feel more magickal. We want to make that rainbow of things we want to do, (or the pot of gold at the other end of the rainbow) – appear.
So what things have you mentally stuffed down inside of you and thought –
Ahhh I am not good enough to do that.
Or maybe, you just feel it’s impossible to accomplish this particular dream.
I mean for me, one of my dreams was to write about astrology and people reading it and finding it useful. That was a dream for me – and here we are.
What are your dreams?
It is time to tap back into those dreams stuffed away in your mind again! (Remember Mercury is retrograde still and giving us an umph to go back to things we once thought about and neatly tucked away) This beautiful aspect tonight is giving us the chance to do just that.

The gemstone suggestion for today is Amethyst. Amethyst will help you to feel your way through the possible fog, instead of think your way through it, Amethyst helps you connect with your soul.

The essential oil suggestion for today is Lemongrass. Lemongrass will help clear the air and bring in positive energy.

Happy New Year everyone! Enjoy the year and get those calendars out and on the wall today! Whatever tradition you usually do today, do that or make up some new ones. Make it something positive that will set you up for the year to come!

The first aspect for today is when Mars is Pisces comes to a conjunction with Neptune in Pisces at 2:19 AM. We have an opportunity here to put energy to the new beginnings for this new year. Our energy conjoins with our dreams under this aspect, so what things are you wanting to create for yourself in this new year? You may not feel the direction to actually do those things as of yet, and you might be a little drunken with life, so write them down and watch this year as your wishes and desires are something unfolding in front of you.

The Aquarius moon them comes to a sextile with Uranus in Aries at 11:24 AM. This has us waking up to a new year and thinking about ways you can make that new year and new beginnings work for you. It is a time that we see and feel things out of the box and sort of march to the beat of our own drum.

Next the moon in Aquarius comes to a trine with Jupiter in Libra at 12:38 PM. We feel optimistic and progressive, our emotions are expansive. We feel unrealistic but happy about it at the same time. This is a “rose colored glasses” time. Enjoy the time but just know that your emotions are going to swing in other directions as the moon moves around today.

Last the Aquarius moon comes to a sextile with Saturn in Sagittarius at 1:04 PM. During this aspect we feel as if we give great advice and are on top of our game. That may or may not be the situation but it sure feels good. This is also a good time for that planning to take place and to keep pushing forward on projects that you already have started.

The gemstone suggestion for today is Apophyllite. Apophyllite is a great gemstone for helping you tap into your third eye chakra and decide what is best for your soul. It would be great to meditate with this gemstone and lay it on your third eye, but be warned – it can cause some powerful visions to those that are prone to them!

The essential oil for today is Spikenard. Spikenard helps us to release fears, as fears are things from the past. We fear because we think the past is the present moment, when it truly is not. It also helps with good fortune and positive health.
