ASTROLOGY VIBRATIONS for December 2017:

We have so many things to think about, so many stories to follow – and SO many distractions – it’s easy to gloss over important things. But since the important things ARE important, Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius in December throws up a CAUTION sign. Mercury stations Retrograde on December 3 (at the end of Sagittarius) while conjunct Saturn. Chill out, pay attention, remember what really matters. This Mercury Retrograde promises to split issues wide open, giving us a second chance to pay attention.Last Quarter in Virgo

This is a time to review our ethical standards, have more conversations, discuss our opinions so we can inform, be informed – and be inspired. More education can open your mind, make you a better teacher, and expand your future potential. There are many options.

New Moon in Virgo: practically impractical


New Moon
in Virgo
September 20, 2017
@ 1:30 AM EDT

Moon @ 27 Virgo 27
Sun @ 27 Virgo 27

This is a very Virgo New Moon. Not only are the Moon & Sun conjunct in Virgo, Mercury, Mars, and Venus join the Sun & Moon. This is a convention! Actually, it’s called a stellium.

I’m traveling, intending to get out of my usual routine and spend some needed time for R&R. But then i read a few astrological articles about the New Moon and i looked at the chart, and i wanted to give a heads up.

Virgo is ordered, analytical, practical. And yes, that’s a preponderance of Virgo energy (that’s about to lessen as the Moon enters Libra @ 6:05 AM EDT, and then the Sun enters Libra on September 22 – EQUINOX!)

But that’s getting ahead of today.

The ruler of all this Virgo energy, Mercury, is also in Virgo, exactly opposing NEPTUNE. And Neptune is anything BUT practical and straightforward. No, this is a New Moon to be aware – that just when you think you have it all the details figured out, you can feel suddenly (yes, suddenly since Uranus is EXACTLY quincunx the Moon & Sun) confused by the very details you just carefully sorted out. Or, enlightened by a psychic download of intuitive information.

Facts and details can be easily crafted and molded into anything that suits an agenda, throwing shadows and mirrors everywhere and anywhere. The fact spinners have the perfect conditions to practice their craft.

Since you imagination can be revved into overdrive, making firm decisions can be a bridge too far right now. Be open to the information you sense now. It can help you make a better decision very soon. Equinox is just 2 days away and a new season of energy and potential awaits….

Wishing everyone a very happy New Moon. And a sweet, healthy & prosperous New Year!

Full Moon in Pisces: the dream gap

Full Moon
September 6, 2017
@ 3:02:48 AM EDT
Moon @ 12 Pisces 53
Sun @ 12 Virgo 53
Neptune @ 13 Pisces 49 Rx

The Full Moon in Pisces makes everything more dreamy. And vague. Truth and fiction are separated by a large gap. Are we Dreaming? Like the seashore, it’s hard to tell fact from fiction. Can we build a bridge, or is the gap just too wide to cross, leaving us on opposing shores. Continue reading
