Have I mentioned here how much you need rest for your health? Sleep. Chill. Meditate. Go sit in nature. Draw the curtains and stay in bed. Putter. Do nothing at all. Or all of the above. This eclipse represents a challenge that has to do with your health and body, your habits, or your daily routine (including but not limited to work). A powerful “enemy” rises—this enemy is likely your own self-sabotage, but it could be the specter of illness or an announcement from that coworker. Don’t get lost in anxiety, especially if the issue at hand is relatively small. What can you let go of? What needs to be dropped for now, so you can recover and adapt? This cycle of change allows you to cut yourself loose from some weight you’ve been dragging around. Make space for your healing.
Week of July 8th
This week begins with a roar for you. You have a message to send, but with Mercury retrograde in your sign, it won’t be easy to communicate. Maybe you’ve been waiting to say this for a long time, and you want to put on a big show. Take care not to let your fireworks display burn anyone, including you. One way to avoid backfire is to continue consciously making time for rest, since you’re still handling a hefty load of responsibility. You need sleep for your health right now. We all have limitations, and burnout is real. Your body is likely to show you what emotions you’re holding on to and what you can let go of. You may find that transforming your daily routine is the challenge you need to tackle. Rewilding your vocation will take time; it can’t all be done at once.
Week of July 1st
With both Mars and Mercury in your sign this week, not to mention Mercury stationing retrograde there on Sunday, you have your hands full. Mars enters your first house on Monday to remind you that you are a talented, driven Boss. I would say “go after what you want!” but you might need to exercise some Boss patience first, because Tuesday’s total solar eclipse in Cancer requires you to rest. For you, the eclipses represent an ongoing cycle of change around releasing dead weight, adapting to new circumstances, facing fears, and engaging with the unseen world of spirits, dreams, and imagination. If going after what you want entails spiritual communication or creative projects, then that might fit perfectly. Otherwise, it’s fine to let the eclipses and the retrograde do their work before you make big moves. On Wednesday, Venus moves into Cancer, helping you with the less visible relationship to spirit, and enhancing your imaginative capabilities. Once Mercury stations retrograde in your sign on Sunday, you will be even more compelled to rest, as you review how you want to use your many talents and what you want to say. What looks like doing nothing this week may actually be a beautiful engagement with the invisible.
Week of June 24th
Beautiful ideas continue to surface from the depths of your unconscious. It may not be clear where they’re coming from, but now is the time to use your talent and harness the inspiration. Turn it into something you can share with an audience. Mercury’s move into your sign on Wednesday helps you render your imaginative visions in vivid color. Now other people can see all of the creative thoughts you’ve been harboring over the past month. Create, collaborate, and perform.
Week of June 17th
Blessings of joy are available to you with this full moon. Have fun, relax, and play! Your dreams continue to be interesting, so there is something to play with there as well. Your imagination is operating on a whole other level. This week, consider what you can create just because. Enjoy dreams for what they are, without the pressure to assign meaning. Sometimes we focus too much on the end goal: what is the message here? Will I sell what I create? Should I rest now because it gives me more energy to work later? But not everything we do needs to relate to a goal. You are here to remind others that play for its own sake is an essential part of life. So even as the planets bring intense change to your days, play with what happens. Do it for no reason. Just because.
Week of June 10th
The changes and challenges that happen now are more likely to be about inner turmoil than outer. You’re plumbing the depths of your unconscious for answers to some personal questions: about joy, creativity, or transformation. Your dreams should be interesting this week. Tune into your subconscious for information about the changes that are happening. You’re in a cycle of adaptation. It’s time to shift perspective so you can give birth to something new.
Week of June 3rd
This new moon asks you to speak with your community. Do you have something big you’ve been sitting on, waiting for the right time to present it? Do you have an idea for something that you want to make? People want to see the gifts you have to offer. If you need help, then friends and networks are standing by to assist you with your creations. Mercury’s move into Cancer on Tuesday begins a two-month period of imaginative contemplation for you. Venus’ move into Gemini on Saturday indicates even more of an emphasis on your network of friends. Share the creative process with others.
Week of May 27th
How are the messages you’re receiving from your community and networks sitting with you on an intuitive level? Where do you feel them in your body? We all want to hear life-affirming words from the people we surround ourselves with. Something in the ocean of your soul is stirring now. You have big offerings of your own to give back to a community of your choosing. Creative performance, artwork, self-expression through fashion, or an abundant sense of play are all gifts you could share with others. Perhaps for you the offering is raising children; a different kind of gift. Let go of your previous beliefs about who you are, and question yourself with an open mind. What are you curious about now?
Week of May 20th
Life would be so great if it wasn’t for the mundane chores, dulling your shine with their tedious requirements. This week, take inventory of the things you do every day (or week, or month), and ask if there is a deeper reason for doing them. Sometimes a less interesting chore is still worthwhile because it has meaning. Maybe you clean every week even though you don’t love it, because you can think better when everything is in its place. Other tasks are simply not worth it; we only do them because we tell ourselves we ‘have to’ or because there is an extrinsic reward (like money). Rarely do we really ‘have to’ do meaningless things, but letting go of those tasks does require us to make changes. Consider the value of switching up an exercise routine to bring you more joy, eating healthy foods that taste good, or passing on a task at work that doesn’t have intrinsic meaning. Mercury cazimi in Gemini lights up your social life, giving you tons to say at parties. You’ll have lots of creative ideas to share with others. Let go of that one mundane task that is weighing you down, so you have more time for fun.
Week of May 13th
Changes are happening at work, whether slowly or suddenly. Practice being open to change. Practice not knowing. Remember, it helps to follow your curiosity and find out where that leads. Making some space in your daily routine will help to open up possibilities. Someone may present you with an opportunity that requires you to act fast. Saturday’s full moon invites you to consider the magic of bringing your whole self into your vocation, or finding work that allows you to do that. Check in with your deep self and your public image. Are they in alignment with each other?
Week of May 6th
Your vocation continues to get wilder and wilder. Get curious about where you might be going. Open up to the most unexpected possibilities. If you feel stuck, consider what sounds like the most fun, and just do that. People often make the mistake of thinking that they have to choose one career and stick with it for a lifetime, but that’s rarely how life works out. You’re always growing and changing. Instead of worrying about finding your one purpose or passion, just follow your current curiosity. When you’re always doing what makes you feel alive, you will naturally align with your callings.
Week of April 29th
This is a week for figuring out what might be standing in the way of the adventures you seek. On the one hand, you have so much to learn and so many places to go, that you can barely contain your curiosity. On the other hand, there is something you’ve been working really hard on, something that’s taking a very long time, and might be worth the wait. If a routine is weighing you down, consider how you can find more freedom within the existing limitations. Saturday’s new moon is a reset for your public image, and possibly your career. Make sure that the responsibilities you’ve taken on are going to help you along your path.
Week of April 22nd
You may be considering a wild change in direction these days. If an impulse moves you this week, sit with it first and make sure you’ve considered all of the consequences. It could be something you’ve been thinking about for a year or more, in which case, maybe it’s finally time to go for it. There is also the potential for a career surprise that you weren’t anticipating. Stay open-minded and have faith in your larger path. You have some exciting opportunities ahead of you.
Week of April 15th
The journey to collect new knowledge continues this week. Stay open-minded. Question your assumptions. With Mercury and Venus moving into Aries, it’s all about enjoying the adventure without necessarily knowing the destination. You’re healing an old wound around learning, public speaking, or faith, and the process requires that you let go of what you already think you know about yourself. Friday’s full moon in Libra speaks of following your curiosity to transform your life a little bit every day. On Saturday, when the sun moves into Taurus, your public image gets a zap of unusual energy. Begin anew.
Week of April 8th
Experiment this week with letting go of what you think you know. An opinion you once thought was near-fact could change now. You are accumulating more knowledge and experience, and with it, wisdom. This is a cycle of evolution for your soul. Your gift for creativity may help with this project, as you alchemize information into beauty. Push your comfort zone. Play and experiment without labeling. Open yourself to the unknown, and you may surprise yourself.
Week of April 1st
You’re still unraveling the Mercury-retrograde mystery this week. A piece may be missing for a couple of weeks yet. Go deep into the past, into the unconscious, into fear, and see what comes up. This is an inner work transit for you, and it’s been going on since at least the beginning of March. That’s why it’s nice that Friday’s new moon in Aries offers another opportunity for renewal in our spring cycle. At the end of the week, you can set intentions for new journeys. Where do you want to go? What do you want to learn? Examine any self-sabotaging habits that could prevent you from enjoying these new adventures. You could set intentions to release the detrimental habit and replace it with a new strategy.
Week of March 25th
Mystery is glamorous, and always attractive. When Venus moves into Pisces on Tuesday, you’ll be drawn further into the mystery. Some of the answers may begin to reveal themselves over the next few weeks. First, though, Mercury is still retrograde and conjunct Neptune, so the buried past longs to be uncovered. Deception (even self-deception) may cloud the true story. When Mercury stations direct on Thursday morning, confusion begins to give way to a gradual clarity. Unfortunately, it’s possible that not everyone in your life has your best interests at heart right now. Be prepared to set boundaries to protect yourself if necessary. On Sunday, Mars into Gemini drives you to connect with your real tribe. A little more lighthearted fun in your social life would be welcome after this season of deep soul diving.
Week of March 18th
This Spring Equinox full moon coincides with new lessons. You are called to teach or learn something that will expand your world, as well as the worlds of anyone else involved. The key is to follow your curiosity. Even if the schooling (or perhaps traveling) is way outside of your comfort zone, take this cue to explore. You may choose to bring a friend, partner, or sibling on this journey with you. Together, you may discover some healing knowledge.
Week of March 11th
With the wild legacy you’re going to create over the next seven years, it’s only natural that you’ll have to shed some aspects of your life. Allow the past to fall away this week. Let go of what’s not working. Say goodbye to what is leaving you, and practice just existing in that liminal space between what was and what will be. Mid-transformation is the hardest part. It’s deeply uncomfortable for most people not to know what’s going to happen next. Imagine what you can generate with this energy of potential, though.
Week of March 4th
Mercury stations retrograde in the deepest waters of your chart on Tuesday. You’re thoughts are submerging, diving down to the unconscious level. You’re likely to resurface with some jewels of knowledge, provided you’re willing to let go and swim deep enough. The new moon on Wednesday aids you in this, helping you to transmute your pain into imaginative creations. You may be piecing together some parts of your experience that were previously a mystery.
Uranus’ ingress into Taurus on Wednesday helps you with this experiment. You’ve spent the last eight years of Uranus in Aries exploring new places, innovative ideas, and unconventional philosophies. Now the changemaker is moving into your house of vocation, to help you take what you’ve learned and use it to shake up your career. Uranus and Taurus are an interesting pair: the planet of sudden, lightening-bolt style changes and the sign of slow, steady growth. You don’t have to fit it all together right away for the benefit of other people. This is a seven-year cycle of experimenting and reinventing who you are, making the perfect mistakes along the way.
Week of February 25th
The past week required a lot of daily effort from you. High demands from work, your health, or some other mundane aspect of life may have tired you out. This week may be a bit busy as well. Better to get stuff done before Mercury stations retrograde on March 5th anyway. On Friday, when Venus moves into Aquarius, you enter a phase of emphasis on your significant relationships. More love, more fun, and some much-needed support are headed your way.
Week of February 18th
Chiron in Pisces was healing the wound of the taboo for you. He taught you about some of the mysteries of life and helped you to become more comfortable with the parts of yourself you had been told were not welcome in society. Now you’re ready for the next steps on your path. At first, Chiron may bring you in contact with some old wounds: schooling that was left unfinished or did not go well for you, insecurities about learning or teaching, or questions of faith. Chiron is in a fellow fire sign now, though, which means that ultimately you’ll be given access to healing knowledge, learning more about yourself in the process. The rest of the astrology this week indicates that you may need to adapt around some realities concerning your health and your money. Take care of yourself; tend to your body. You’ll need your resources for the journey ahead.

Emotions are not reality. They just feel that way.
Today's total solar eclipse in the sensitive sign of Cancer is likely to be emotional. In the lunar letter today, I offered a practice for slowing down and going into the feelings. Click through the link in bio to "Lunar Letter" and subscribe!

Your July forecast is up: link in bio.⠀
Welcome to what is probably the most challenging month of 2019. Hopefully June’s previews helped you prepare for July, but if you’re feeling overwhelmed, you’re in good company. We made it through last summer’s simultaneous Mars and Mercury retrograde and this winter’s eclipses, and we’ll make it through this eclipse season too. I see the 2018-20 Cancer-Capricorn eclipse cycle as a series of floods and earthquakes—not literal disasters, but major changes that reconfigure the geography of our lives. Floods change the landscape, making lakes where there once was dry land, and necessitating boats where there were parking lots. Earthquakes change the lay of the land too, destroying what is not securely fastened, and requiring us to rebuild.⠀

Find out what today's full moon on Jupiter means for you in your horoscope - link in bio!⠀
Today's full moon is in Sagittarius, sign of optimism and expansion, next to Jupiter, the ruler of the sign. It's a good'un. It makes a wide square to Neptune, participating in the Jupiter-Neptune square that was exact yesterday, and that's ok. Because this full moon brings dreams to fruition, and bestows blessings of luck, wisdom, and opportunity. There is possibility here. One possibility is that you could adapt well to change, sliding out of the vice grip of these Cancer-Capricorn oppositions and expanding into a better alternative. Another possibility is that you could gain knowledge that helps you get closer to a dream. A third possibility is that you could just have a really fun time, because you see the blessings of joy that are always available, even in harsh weather.⠀

Purple with purple eyeshadow today while I prepare charts for some new clients. Sometimes (often) I look up from my work and feel profoundly grateful that this is my life. It wasn't too long ago that I was sitting in midtown hating my day job and secretly studying charts in my office. Gathering the courage to be weird in public has paid off.
I haven't taken a lot of selfies historically but I'm trying this self love thing I've heard about.

Me: Can you send me a copy of this book?
Them: Sure. It's like REALLY weird.
Is it just me or did we re-enter the 70s when Chiron entered Aries? Whatever it is, any book titled High Weirdness is a book I have to read. Very into @strangeattractorpress rn.

Ready or not, here we are in the week when all of the hot mid-June spaceweather is happening! Jupiter in Sagittarius is square Neptune in Pisces right now (the aspect will be exact on Sunday). Today, we have the sun in Gemini still making a T-square to both of them, which adds an edge to the question being asked: is your optimism helping you to manifest a dream or are you engaged in self-delusion? The Jupiter-Neptune square in these signs makes me think of ships sailing on journeys, people’s ships coming in, and for others, ships lost in fog. It’s possible to go somewhere with this 2019 aspect, but you need to chart a course and adapt to the conditions as you encounter them.

Today's new moon is in the air sign of Gemini. The element of air in the zodiac is symbolically associated with birds, and as talkative Gemini is ruled by Mercury, planet of communication, this moon has me thinking about the language of birds. This theme seems especially in sync with this moon's 90 degree aspect to Neptune in Pisces, The Mystic. The language of birds is often spoken of in mythology and mysticism, as a perfect, divine, or magical language known only to the initiated...⠀

When I look at the aspects for June of this year, I see two overarching themes playing out. One is shown through the mutable energy of Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces: gathering knowledge and remaining open to change, and therefore resilient. The second theme is a reason to cultivate resilience: the lead-up to our especially hard-hitting Cancer-Capricorn eclipse season in July.⠀

A few weeks ago I was making a page to invite people to support the work. I started writing about how my weekly horoscopes and other writings are presented in the spirit of the gift economy. And then I started thinking and writing about how the idea of the gift economy has been exploited by corporations in the information age, so that we no longer understand how to participate in it. It was getting pretty long, so I turned it into a blog post. Link in bio: click through to "Some Thoughts on the Gift Economy."⠀
