Mercury Conjunct Neptune in Pisces. Lies, lies and more lies.

Aries Sun trine Moon in Leo, Uranus in Taurus squares the Moon. If the above is obfuscation and conspiracy, consider this to be the noise that keeps the truth from being heard clearly, that includes the truths being shouted, and whispered, into the melee as well.

Its better now than it was. People are starting to see truth, rather than hear it. Evidence based practice will win eventually. It may be a slow motion tidal wave of AH-HA as people start to die in places that have been acting immune to everything.

Pluto conjunct Jupiter at 24 Capricorn. The beginning of the next Pluto/Jupiter cycle. Short term, Comeuppance and coverup. Expect more of the same. There may be some revelations. Definitely there will be more dismantling of gov’t services, and the current services proving their inability to handle large stresses. Trust that a ton of ugly bad shit is happening behind the scenes, gov’t or otherwise. Long term this is political and judicial transformation with ambition at its core.

Of the flip side of this coin:

Mercury and Neptune together are working to combat this virus in the lab and the dreamtime. Mars in Aquarius is about to sextile Chiron in Aries and that is also innovative, forward thinking and not afraid to try. Venus enters Gemini to trine Saturn at 0 degree Aquarius. This is an excellent conspiracy for planning, visioning what matters and means the most to you. Its fast moving, the effects could be immediate or long term, past when you will remember what you do today. Its spring, dream big of a bright future. Know it will require hard work.

We are all seeking Grace in this time. Just make sure you are telling the truth. That is the job of humans who are interested in the COMMON GOOD. Truth. Kindness. Generosity. It’s hard to find in the charts of the these days. Everything is under the influence of lies, the telling, the believing of them, denying them, reacting to them.

At 3 degrees Uranus is getting some growth, think the young bull, the yearling. You are learning this way of consciousness, consciousness is a force of its own. Let interest and curiosity be your guide through the bigger picture. Go easy. The energy out there is kinetic. Like the Magician, you can ground within it, learning to wield it, as well as follow it.

Mercury is deep in its pre-retro shadow. A week from today it goes retro. Know that the coming errors are opportunities; for what, remains to be seen. Also, choices long put off are rearing their heads again. Oh, and Mercury in Pisces is opposing today’s Virgo Moon so that’s emotional overthinking right there. Combined with the presence of Neptune in Pisces, not far off but not yet conjoined, everything is clouded, unclear and damp. The empath in each of us cannot be deluded by such obfuscation. Our intuitive selves are working overtime to compute, analyze and respond to the things happening in the world right now. Take as much time as you need to chew your cud in the field. Feel your way forward.

Yesterday, the Virgo Moon, moving quickly, trined 3 degree Uranus in Taurus. Yes, it felt like an emotional hit from the back of the head. Might have been the past reminding you, I’m still here, and you still have feelings about me. Or, depending on placement in your chart, it might have been the emotional present saying, Pay attention! Either way, consciousness was the key. Do not look away when it hurts. Everything hurts right now. The way is through, not head in the sand, cowering. If you do that, the pain will go numb for a time but eventually, it will be painful again.

Today the Moon trines Jupiter in Cap. More talking points. Soundbytes. If you’ve got stuff to sell, this is a good day to do it. If you are in the market to buy beware of the sales pitch. Writers, write. Artists, art. Even if its not the project you are supposed to be working on. Professionals, professional on but know the cogs in the machine keep it running. You too may want to look at different projects today.

You might just spit out the the truth you’ve been keeping silent under your tongue in a long attempt to prop up your status quo. You may or may not even like that status quo but the unknown alternatives keep you trying to support the support you’ve been supporting for support.

Ah, now there is there thing. You may have to piece that out to really understand what you are doing. Its a good day to untangle knots of thought, communication, and idea. However, once loose of the knot, those threads can easily tangle again, so go slow when you want go fast. Be methodical and take notes.

This transit is momentary. The undercurrents of the Pluto/Saturn conjunction (still at 23 and 25 Cap) are strong and pulling even as they separate. That status quo is an ongoing pull between the rules we have chosen to live by, and the not yet seen new options, but felt deep in our bones and psyche. Today Mercury and Uranus conspire in the depths to discuss those options. I don’t know if today is the day you toss the towel in the air and walk your talk your way, or if you do the Piscean swim, continue circling from both directions at once. Just take the moment to know what you are choosing. You don’t have to change anything right now, but you can. The medicine is owning your choices, your words, your doings.

On Politics: The spin right now is nonstop, Just don’t even. Go sit in nature, listen to the buzz that is happening there. Its way more interesting than the 4th Estate. Trump wants bread and circuses (the life blood of the Rome as it fell). Peolsi even upped him on that though. You don’t have to like to appreciate her ability to one up him over and over again. Notice that the Senate will vote next week to convict or dismiss, as the gap between Pluto and Saturn grows. Not until April can we expect Justice to come into the room when Jupiter conjoins Pluto at 24 Cap. 


This is a fast moment in time. Love and Weird are in the air. Leo and Aquarius – a dynamic duo of glamour and geek. Its a force for good to love what the overculture denigrates. Get it on. Love your inner Freak and taste freedom in your bones. Be kind and gracious and goofy. Don’t fight it, The back drop of these days, times, are none of those. You can be a counter force to cruelty. Be courageous when you don’t feel brave. It wouldn’t be courage if it felt safe and easy.

Sample Text

Its simple but very real. We all have OPINIONS about the last few days. You can already hear them echoing in repetition. The Libra moon will bring critical thinking into play, showing us the work is not the opinion itself but the unpacking of the opinion. Merc and Plu are in Capricorn, so yes, the halls of power will equally echo in repetition. May Libra moon allow the wise to prevail. Uranus stations retrograde today, Jupiter stations direct, maybe something will change as these two planets revisit their positions of the last 7 and 3 three months respectively. Uranus turned retrograde in the first week of January, so you can see what I mean when I say we have a lot ground to go back over, politically as well as personally.


Love Fest in Leo while guns blaze and bodies fall. Can we be both, devastated and lifted up by the simple joy of living? Can death remind us life is the only way for change? Or do we get lost in the unraveling, following slick trails of grief into despair, losing love as we slide. There is a real pull towards the latter right now. Those young men with guns have lost themselves to it, taking as many as they can as they go. Pluto, Saturn, Neptune, even Chiron in its way, work a spell of horror on the USA, as dirty sheets are pulled back, showing decades of corruption and evil intent.

Right now the antidote is Leo. Venus, Sun, Mars all together, heightened by each other. Love more. Feel more. Express more. Gather and celebrate the Sun even as the shadows grow close. Cry on one another shoulders. Laugh in each other’s arms. Celebrate each other as you are, the most imperfect-prefect you now, in this moment. So much learned, so much more to know. The times are dark. The Summer is high. Take in your first fruits to store for the early dark.

Why is a sun oppose Saturn hard? Personality, who you are, staring what must be known, owned, in the face. Plus its eclipse season. That’s why it’s hard. Right now Saturn and our home star are staring each other down in Cap and Cancer. Its tense, even if you are out of the direct lines of fire. The squares to Libra and Aries are probably more difficult than the opposition. For some it comes from authority figures, teachers, bosses. For others, add the voices of the inner critic, the higher power, common sense.  

Its only for one day but the next step is Sun oppose Pluto (7/14). In some cases, wake up calls come too late. Anything needing to go underground, if it’s not already on the compost, is suddenly there. Hard lessons land. I’m hearing a blitz of subpoenas are coming for the admin. Perhaps that’s a perfect analogy for this week.

Here is a trick though, sometimes improvement means doing less, not more. Also do not go digging around in your compost heap trying to resurrect that which/whose time has passed.

When in doubt practice gratitude for what stays.

Be as kind as you are brave. Be as brave as you are kind. Note tenderness. Note fortitude. Invoke air if your thoughts are stuck in loops. Drink water. Sing if you are alone. Laugh if you are with friends.

This is a week of emotions, and exclamations. A lot is happening in water and fire signs so life is full of feelings and expression. Heavy hitters, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto are all in earth signs for the long haul. Grounding? Um… I wish? Try startling, like an earthquake. Or entrenched like the GOP. The Moon is the only player bringing air to the table on the 10th & 11th in Libra. So take a deep breath on Wed & Thurs as we dive straight into the depths of Scorpio on Friday. Like I said it’s a feeling week.

The North Node, the work that needs to be done to overcome karma, blindspots, inherited privilege, all of our personal and collective ‘stuff,’ in Cancer is ready for the nurturing that brings healing. Saturn, the ability by which we can harness the work to study, learn, and thereby lead, in Capricorn says this is the work before us but won’t get out of its own way. Gentleness and nurturing might feel far away, they are mysteries that are hard to explore. Vulnerability might feel too dangerous, but sharp edges aren’t gonna help either.

It’s not easy with Jupiter retro in Sag making all kinds of slip ups. Neptune in Pisces squares Jupiter and best intentions may burn up in the face of reality. The real star of the next three weeks, Mercury is also in retro. It is passing through the beginning of Leo, hitting Mars on 7/14, probably with some sort of Leoine bang! On 7/18 it slips back into Cancer so feeling gets easier but communicating needs might be harder. (See vulnerability comment above.)

All of these retros are the learnings coming at you, fast or slow. You might fall off the trajectory of selfcare this week. You might need to reschedule what you thought would come easy. You might be mad about all the things that cause disruption in your day to day. Yep. The first step in selfcare is catching the moment when you can change your thoughts, repattern your thinking. Its all a practice. Be joyful in your small successes, and patient with yourself, and others, when plans change.
