New Moon in Taurus
Monday May 18th 12:14 AM EST

Mercury will go retrograde hours after the new Moon and will be in a sextile alignment with a Jupiter Juno conjunction in Leo. A simplicity of ideas works best as the Taurus Moon cycle will seek the comfort and security of a foundation which is predicable. It may be known to some individuals that they would benefit from letting some things go yet doing so seems not possible and continued trying causes other difficulties. A good approach to free oneself of such a dilemma is to practice admission as opposed to practicing denial management. The obvious flaw of practicing denial is in the awareness that thought creates and thus it is revealed that denial management and projection, blaming others, are twins. This Moon cycle will offer the individual an opportunity to become free of such limited weighty approaches to life's regular challenges and begin the individual on a course of reversing chronic difficulty. Admitting can be easy easy easy yet why then is it so difficult? Perhaps the individual would not know themselves if they were to admit it all? Admission can indeed lead to identity collapse so this is the justification for enduring a long drawn out painful life? The first priority for the individual is most certainly self love. The Mercury Juno Jupiter sextile will bring to one's attention the energetic conduit of self admiration and fill the mind with such. yet this can be resisted because in the past the individual has experienced hardship thinking they were so important, and here we see the identity conflict rise. Again the simplicity is astounding as the individual can go ahead and safely believe in themselves as long as they are not hell bent on being validated externally. Juno in Leo is like "I will show them or so and so why I am so important and then they will like me, oh yes I am great!" and Jupiter also in Leo is like "wow I am so great I am the light I am it" and with Mercury right there in sextile the messenger delivers the news right to the ego. However this is an exciting alignment when the individual can nonchalantly be in self love without the need for validation by others and is able to accept that their experiences are drawn to them simply because thought creates. Typically the individual is reversing the thoughts and the correlating manifestations which they have been partial to in the past. And so now the issues will come forward and occupy their mind, Mercury will be retrograde during most of this Moon cycle, because the individual has emotionally glued their soul to identities which are in conflict with the harmony of existence. Since our soul does not want to be fragmented it will allow a stretching to occur, like cheese on a hot pizza, in hopes that one day the individual will love themselves and admit they are the cat's meow.

Taurus knows simplicity yet this is kind of outside looking in. When you are Taurus simplicity it is much more like this incredible rich sensuality where you can taste everything. Taurus is very sensual. For those who think things are too simple perhaps they are devoid of knowing this richness, this sensuality? In a sense there is no such thing as simplicity, or simplicity is relative, as simplicity is really a perspective. For example an individual may feel nervous, for whatever reason or situation, yet this is really a lack of simplicity. If the individual was well aware of their situation they would be less likely to be nervous, and so the lack of familiarity, or the lack of knowing what one is doing relative to their belief about what they should know manifests as confusion in their emotional body and they are "simply" nervous. Considering how sensuality is like the innate intelligence of our body or the intuition our body shares with us, or our organic connection with all Earth bound life, it, sensuality, epitomizes our connecting with all that is real in terms of honoring and loving our body. From this understanding we can see that nervousness is a lack of loving ourselves especially loving our body. Sensuality is more powerful than many things deemed intelligent as sensuality is awareness and intelligence is the by product of awareness, or sensuality. Awareness is like the key to the vault and is given to every human as every human has an organic body and thus is endowed with sensuality. Pluto continues to transit Capricorn and this is affecting all organic creatures big time. The very highways and byways of how we harmonize and share our life's experience on this planet with all other living creatures is being altered changed corrected reinvented, and this is causing extreme on going changes in the infrastructure of logical humans as well as all other creatures. It is just that humans who tend to lean or count on logic devoid of embracing their feelings as if their feelings are truth are experience difficulty because they are not connecting to the Earth and the bigger picture of advanced simplicity. This Moon cycle will bring forward simplify to the individual to where it is most needed. It is up to the individual to choose the simplicity offered them. By following one's passion and desire one's sensuality one's innate intelligence the voice of life, organic life, will bring them the simplicity and love they most need.

The power of instituted authority to maintain harmony and well being in our society can be seen as a stir stick. In the mix is family security, personal rights, social acceptance, fair distribution of values and securities, and most definitely integrity. As these things get stirred up Pluto in Capricorn style we are wise to keep our personal admission and ownership just that - personal. Knowing that our process is mirrored through multi layers we are privy to the parallels which exist. Such awareness assists us now as we trust and allow our emotions to take us where we need to go. Our beliefs are scrutinized, mass beliefs and those more localized personal beliefs. This questioning will bring up feelings. In the past our social conditioning has adapted a maneuver called distraction. To avoid hurtful feelings we change the channel. We change the topic, get taboo stickers in our home, work place, and community, and paste them over those things which cause us to feel. As the stickers give way to the weight of worry, anxiety, fear, and those sort of things we look for better ways to stop the pain and chaos of feeling. Better distractions, bigger tvs, more powerful computers, more inventive apps, and faster internet connections. Ironically a walk in the park connects us to what is real, more real than labeling things as taboo. The institution of Mother Nature is powerful, it runs obediently with integrity minding it's own authority and institution. As a humanity we are poised to accept this authority. In the meantime those authorities which pertain to separation fly in the face of organic symbiosis. The separation paradigm has founded and defined academy in a world which at times seems completely oblivious to aboriginal wisdom. Increases in awareness means the times of distraction wane. The greatest entertainment of all begins. Life is fascinating, discovering the magic of directing reality through congruent thought, the pleasure of acknowledging the Earth and being accepted in her organic harmony, her social club, the passion and juiciness of experiencing ones own authentic creative expression as it merges and harmonies with others. The sensual connection which gifts us with experiences which the mind can only label as completely amazing. Who could ask for a better life? It is indeed great to be alive! This paragraph initially posted as part of report number 75.

During the new Moon phase Juno in Leo will be conjunct Jupiter, sextile Mercury in Gemini, and quincunx Pluto in Capricorn, thus being a part of a YOD alignment also referred to as a "finger of God". Will a self admiration which has been historically false now be challenged by a deeper more insightful self? A call or challenge to come out of any patterns of self acceptance which have continually proved to be futile is initiated by one's sensual inclusion in their world as Taurus energy shines with increased brightness. False self admiration would be qualified by some sort of accomplishment where the accomplishment is due to the external validation which deemed it's value. Now perhaps it becomes apparent, this aim for accomplishment is interfering with one's innate intelligence. Discernment regarding self respect can lead to a high degree of insight, a moving toward elevated awareness, especially where shared values are involved. This of course would include money and yet the bigger item here is one's sensuality and how sensuality is inclusion. Such awareness of the nature of sensuality and how it signifies inclusion can lead one toward wisdom and greatness. Ironically false greatness must be admitted in order to enter this self awareness, and this is precisely what is poised to be busted. The false self admiration is reduced in it's leverage when it is accepted that the accompanied impulse which drives it is actually a valid and useful ticket of admission to becoming involved in some dynamic plan or intention. At some point however the impulse, in order to survive, must be handed over to grander vision of self involvement. Here we have our sensuality and it's inclusive nature. Gripping onto the initial self admiration archetype signifies, you can feel it's quality, it's reliance on external validation. In many cases the individual involved will be oblivious to the falseness of how their self admiration has been qualified and it is this particular alignment which will challenge this obliviousness by expanding the individuals feelings of being somebody who is admirable and respected. This expansion can reach such a great degree that it challenges the manner in which the individual would typically move such energy. Admitting falseness for example might be the ticket which allows admission into an enchanted sensual world of self respect which can move this increased energy in a harmonious way.


With this Moon cycle beginning in Taurus the focus will be on personal beliefs and thoughts which spring from issues pertaining to foundation and security. The current report, including the fourteen period cycle below, is scripted from the perspective of experiencing and witnessing these beliefs as they flood into the mind and are extended to others through communication. Thoughts and ideas communicated reveal beliefs which have been encouraged by notions which detail where security comes from. An evolution of self awareness occurs as the influence behind the beliefs becomes known. Those born under the Sun sign Taurus have a natural propensity to seek solid ground through beliefs, they know value as it is measured in the comfort and security beliefs support. They naturally locate a steadiness within a sea of communicated ideas. Not to exclude others as we all have Taurus somewhere in our personal astrology charts, the following is a simplified list intended to indicate where each Sun sign would access Taurus propensity for locating and being steady. There are many accents in each personal astrology chart where an individual's energy will be characterized by an apparent alternate Sun sign, as in being their Moon sign. In these cases there may be personal alignments which support a deviation of one's will from their highest order. The intention here is to clarify a basic location or activity where an individual can find or manifest into their experience comfort and security and thus create added meaning to the content of the report. These can also serve as healthy intentions.

    I manifest a natural comfort and steadiness ...
  • Aries: by valuing and trusting what I see and witness right there in front me.
  • Pisces: by listening for and speaking from basic understanding.
  • Aquarius: by trusting my feelings and extending this to self acceptance.
  • Capricorn: by being selective as I accept those ideas which will facilitate inspired action.
  • Sagittarius: by being discerning and realistic as I focus specifically on what is my own concern.
  • Scorpio: by accepting my partner for what is mirrored back to me.
  • Libra: by paying attention to the common ground which prevails from my partnerships.
  • Virgo: by allowing myself to discover the unifying nature of the Earth, no matter where I find myself upon her.
  • Leo: by bringing a realistic and solid foundation to the public I serve.
  • Cancer: by keeping my involvement with friends and community simple.
  • Gemini: by allowing myself to merge with nature and accept her constant state of welcoming as she provides for her entire organic family.


The Birthdays section is a list of birthdays which are being strongly affected by current astrological alignments. If a birthday is not listed here it doesn't mean that a person is not experiencing significant astrological influences which are dynamically paralleling life changes. After all we are experiencing tremendous Earth changes now, nobody is excluded. The people who do have these birth dates are being strongly influenced now and are likely experiencing life altering dynamics. In some cases great opportunities are occurring and in others great challenges are brought forward. Since all challenges can be re-framed as opportunities all those who have these birthdays are experiencing great live changing opportunities. If a birthday is just a day or so previous to the listed date then the person has recently experienced a major change. Due to the retrograde nature of transiting planets the change is not necessarily complete, it may return. If a birthday follows a date listed the person will soon experience a major change. Again due to the retrograde nature of transiting planets the person may have already begun a major change which seems to have backed off, and will most definitely return.

01 Monday May 18th - new Moon in Taurus 12:14 AM EST
The foundations one creates or manifests during this new Moon phase and this Taurus Moon cycle will in some way involve a simplicity of thinking and communicating. Becomming clear as to what is merely talk and what is real information in regards to translating talk into actual actions is what this Moon cycle will for many be about. Venus in Cancer at the new Moon indicates an acceptance and embracing of sensitivity which can be an extra boost for some as they get to what really matters to them. For some this getting into sensitivity will lead to family matters. An extra sensitivity toward family members in how one communicates may be forth coming. There will be some days this Moon cycle where conversation can be aggressive or at the very least bold. Be ready to listen immediately and others will not have to raise their words up too loudly to get another's attention. Juno and Jupiter become close partners in Leo indicting those seeking recognition, especially publicly, to gain attention or respect in personal relationships will be firing things up, this too can translate to courageous conversation. Foundation which is good and desirable will always correlate with a simplicity of thinking and communicating and we can count on this Moon cycle to nudge us in this direction. Simplicity can lead to wisdom especially in matters which require diplomacy and involve public or professional interests. A simplified professional approach which involves creating a harmonious group action plan can be surprisingly powerful as indicated by the quincunx of Pallas Athena in Sagittarius to the new Moon. Unexpected social outbursts continue and now lead to bringing out ideas which would normally have been kept quite. Ideally the individual will find relationship and partnership opportunities more exciting, valuing relationships more and more as opposed to an old slam dunk independent nature.

02 Monday May 18th - Moon enters Gemini 5:28 AM
Mercury retrograde Monday May 18th 9:50 PM
Things regrettable said on Monday morning may linger in one's mind for a few weeks. Or one may have heard something lately and it begins to insistently occupy their inner process for the next few weeks. A need to have clear communication may be connected with one's basic sense of security. Having a cliche way to say something for example may be suitable to some because it allows them to feel as if they have an answer to something and having an answer means they can legitimately go on to the next step or item in their affairs. What is said or thought may have a different weight to some and a conflict or difference of opinion occurs. This may be exaggerated in importance because to some there is a degradation of foundation if there is not a single point of view shared. One's belief as such is their foundation or so they react as if it is. An authority may challenge the idea of another or a overly confident self importance in a specific individual may have them carrying into conversation things which are not harmonious among their peers. Aggressive talk can occur and yet there is in the mix a potential for individuals to discover they are not so unique in their thinking and expression. They may recognize others are on a path parallel to their own simple by the way ideas are expressed. Recondition of such parallels can be valuable makeing any hardship getting to this recognition well worth it. Seeing individualism traced back to a cookie cutter source can be very freeing as well for it facilitates noticing a bigger mental panorama. It also allows for a freedom in thought and, most important, makes way for pleasant enjoyable relationships.

03 Wednesday May 20th - Moon enters Cancer 9:57 AM
Sun ingress Gemini Thursday May 21st 4:46 AM
The difference between being child like and being childish can be more apparent now as the Moon transits Cancer. The opposition of Pluto in Capricorn can bring the serious matter of being prudent and purposeful with ones intentions closer to home. Domestic issues may be more alerting. The current transit of Venus through Cancer will however bring acceptance to increased sensitivity and can indicate some will be more interested in home and domestic matters. An attraction to sensitivity will bring out creative expression in some. For example those who need to produce creatively can all of a sudden feel their sensitivity lead them to an idea and in an instant a new expression is born. The increased sensitivity experienced whenever the Moon transits Cancer is highlighted now by both transiting Venus and the Pluto opposition. Some may feel with added intensity the devastation of being in a situation where recent restructuring in their world has occurred. Venus will however make it easier to accept such devastation as perhaps an awakening of feeling occurs and brings the individual back into a sense of priority which was needed. Some may value their social relationship more right now. Venus as the planetary ruler of Taurus can bring an increased sensitivity to one's friendship relationships and other socializing dynamics where a fundamental belief is brought to a more intense understanding and truth.

04 Friday May 22nd - Moon enters Leo 5:43 PM
Connections between foundational security and self admiration may be tested as the Moon transits Leo. One may feel more confident about their foundation and security than usual as this is mixed in with a boost in self admiration. A feeling that one can accomplish anything is not to be confused with the possible fact that they, to date, have not yet made the significant accomplishment. Hopefully the individual is clear as to the real quality of their foundational security and they are able to make practical decisions based on their ability to share ideas and plans harmoniously with others. As the Moon moves from Cancer and makes the Leo ingress a shift from feeling more sensitive than usual to feeling that one needs to be acknowledged can occur. The Jupiter Leo transit, started last July and goes until this coming July, could very likely have been boosting the self grandness of some, the reality of this Jupiter boost being felt more as the Moon transits Leo. The need to accomplish something in order to be important can also be elevated now however once again it is the ability to understand the ideas of self and others and to share this understanding which is the real foundation builder. The ideas don't even have to be completely agreed upon, the stipulation is that they are understood. A clear mind is the real asset to generate foundation and security as this will bring in simplicity and alleviate one's mind of unnecessary confusion. Juno also transiting Leo will motivate some to seek attention for their admirable quality. Again it is one's ability to believe in themselves and allow the world they live into to echo their thoughts and personal beliefs which will manifest the harmony and simplicity of foundation.

05 Monday May 25th - Moon enters Virgo 4:53 AM
Being critical and sensitivity to the reasoning of self or others can rise as the Moon transits Virgo. Mercury, now retrograde, as the planetary ruler of Virgo, indicates the return of unresolved issues where something was not quite completed or in place. Nothing returns to one's mind that is not of value to the individual, pondering of an issue may well be worth resolving. The Sun is now in Gemini as is Mars and Mercury indicating a inclination toward using communication to achieve the things one wants. And with Mercury retrograde an individual may bring up something from the past where for example it is believed that someone said something which has stuck to them and comes forward in their attention now. Some may dig up the past as if it is occurring now. Questioning of another's logic may trigger some to speak up where as in the past interaction was avoided. To establish a foundation as required by the current Taurus influence a clear understanding will seem necessary, or a clear understanding will be called for in order to find stability. When everybody is on the same page it can qualify as a foundation for some. Mercury is connected with cars and local transportation and when retrograde issues with vehicles have been known to occur. If one feels concern simply make a point of intending safety. Mercury also rules small or local machinery, gadgets, definitely digital devices including phones and computer related things, so once again take the extra time to do things clearly and with focus.

06 Wednesday May 27th - Moon enters Libra 5:43 PM
Although topics may get mixed up and conversation can go sideways quite easily this can be a good time to simply be conversational with friends. Bringing people together in a harmonious way at the expense of losing one's historic independent nature is occurring now as indicated by the Moon's north node transit through Libra (February 2014 - October 2015). The current new Moon cycle in Taurus will seek simplicity and this translates to ideas being clearly understood and in this instance ideas shared. Mercury retrograde will cause some to go backwards in their stream of thought yet this is not such a bad or negative thing as the Gemini Sun will want just to share energy with others while the Libra Moon sorts out the sharing and balance. To be free independently and yet still recognize and embrace the importance of harmony in relationships is the big theme now as again indicated in by the Moon's north node transit in combination with Uranus's Aries transit. The quincunx formed by retrograde Pluto in Capricorn and Jupiter in Leo will empower many as the transition from old school thought and it's correlating real world systems to new social structures carries on. The self esteem of some may be over estimated yet the the potential to feel great power is there and things can happen. If there is delusional leadership driving things right now it can have an effect yet the status of the leader will likely collapse as Jupiter completes it's Leo transit mid summer.

07 Saturday May 30th - Moon enters Scorpio 5:35 AM
The true value of partnership can be known by the way in which values and resources are shared. The ultimate value being one's body and the manifestation of sensual sharing. Organic life exists as a constant sensual sharing and can be seen as a symbiotic organic relationship, the dynamic harmony of Earth creatures. Humanities place within this organic symbiotic relationship when held in high regard can be rewarding for the individual as it brings an acknowledgement to one's being which triggers an innate intelligence within the body. Intuition and simple feeling and knowing greater truth is an extension of loving and honoring the body. Doing so connects the individual's awareness to the awareness their body has as a member of the organic symbiosis of the Earth. Actively loving the Earth can pay big dividends! The four asteroids are typically indicators of this magical sensual sharing so prominent in Scorpio energy. Ceres in Aquarius can remind the individual to respect and honor the Earth as a great provider of values to organic creatures and challenge the need to seek admirable qualities for individual gratification. Pallas Athena in Sagittarius can assist the individual in finding wisdom in prioritizing what one can do to make things right for all involved in whatever situation as opposed to just talking about it. Juno in Leo can remind the individual to be self loving and Vesta in Pisces reminds the individual of the scared connection between all living creatures and the compassion which unities us all.

08 Monday June 1st - Moon enters Sagittarius 2:40 PM
Full Moon Tuesday June 2nd 12:20 PM
Rules for conversation may come up. We only talk about things which are connected to real actions. Powerful change may be the topic of choice as old ways are questioned and removed to make way for new ideas. A YOD begins to form from a sextile of Jupiter in Leo and Mars in Gemini with a quincunx with Pluto in Capricorn. Optimistic Jupiter becomes active as the Moon transits it's home turf Sagittarius. A sense of feeling more confident than usual may drive some to prove such. Juno also in Leo can push this as well as the need to be respected for what one assumes is their better side begins to motivate action. The powerful effect of Pluto in Capricorn can make conversation feel very strong as the need for change manifests in certain ideas getting a bigger avenue of expression. Conversation can be bold and aggressive as indicated by Mars in Gemini. Saturn will retrograde into Scorpio yet not until June 14th and so for now there is an authority at the gate looking for relevance in what is said, ideas are critiqued. The Moon will bring up the challenge for some where they are feeling strongly about who they are and can potentially move into the dynamic of feeling they need to prove themselves with specific actions. Actions and big talk are both strong right now. With the Moon in Sagittarius the individual would be wise to be clear as to how any concern over public reputation affects the actions and talk they do submit. Professional relationships may be tested.

09 Wednesday June 3rd - Moon enters Capricorn 8:52 PM
Venus ingress Leo Friday June 5th 11:34 AM
Major social restructuring changes how many individuals think. Although some individuals will adhere to what had become accepted thinking they may be doing the unthinkable and begin to change the way they think. An ability to accept that change has already occurred can assist some as minds chase back over past details left unresolved. There are some who may benefit from a release of judgment toward some big authority, their catch bin of accusation. Although there will be parallel or correlating authorities who act out the limitations and boundaries which can be frustrating the actual cause of one's experience can be more appropriately directed to one's own acceptance of limitation. As one increases their basic understanding as to the advantage of accepting responsibility, even outside the typical status quo of understanding who is responsible for what, a better more comfortable sense of security can begin to jell. A sextile between Mars in Gemini and Jupiter in Leo has formed indicating a potential for increased dialogue motivated by a need to have one's identity of greatness assured, this can be an internalized dialogue as well. Ideally the individual will become increasingly secure as a coming to terms with a perhaps personal history of false or misguided identity occurs and they begin instead to embrace a bigger ideal of who they are simple because they have come to understand the power of accepting responsibility on a surprisingly basic level.

10 Saturday June 6th - Moon enters Aquarius 1:03 AM
Recent ideas and thoughts regarding one's position among peers, or in relation to community or society relationships, come back now as if they are grander in importance than previously considered. The resolution of these ideas within the individual will free their mind as well as allow the individual to establish a steady confidence. Those who have already established such a steady inner confidence will be prime candidates to inspire others as their ideas are easily understood and communicated and are amazingly simple as well. Boldly sharing ideas is the extension of an inner confidence and in a sense is no big deal. These ideas are put out there, networked, and reaching others because they are good ideas, beneficial to many. Meanwhile a traumatized individual will feel the pressure of fitting in socially, publicly, and as such their ideas and words will be fragmented as a basic fundamental self appreciation is perhaps weakened. Some may express themselves in order to elevate their perceived social position. Ideally the individual will find relating with others more satisfying and productive, and enjoyable, than taking a solo approach. This may be a good time to resolve solo approaches conceived of in the past, perhaps functional in the past yet now bumpy and exhausting. The simple matter of being in the now and enjoying interactions with others can create self improvement in that a consistency is allowed to develop which is more in step with current times and relationships.

11 Monday June 8th - Moon enters Pisces 4:17 AM
It may be astounding how some individual's can speak so confidently about something which seems so delusional to another. From the perspective that thought creates, an assumed truth and basis for this analysis, everything which exists is someone's idea and in a sense can be considered a fantasy or delusion from the belief positioning of another. Just like the realities of one song to the next song as they pass through one's play list ideas and notions expressed, or implied by one's actions, are real within the context of the individual who experiences them. Currently the Moon transits Pisces and the delusions of others, which can be very real to them, are expressed as being absolute. Unaware that all beliefs are actually delusional or fantasy can cause a riff from one false absolute to another as they are both attempting to occupy the same social space. The real matter here is the nature of an individual's identity as their identity is possible only relevant if their absolute is indeed really absolute. The smashing together of differing delusional absolutes is the cause of conflict for humanity even though each and every individual has the free will choice to think and reason multi-dimensionally, or multi-absolutely. This may be a good time to allow others the avenue of expressing their ideas and beliefs even if they are not likely to be embraced to the degree that another may seem to need. Also realize with Mercury continuing to be retrograde these ideas are in many cases unresolved past issues which are returning now such that they can finally be resolved.

12 Wednesday June 10th - Moon enters Aries 7:15 AM
Mercury direct Thursday June 11th 6:34 PM
Neptune retrograde Friday June 12th 5:09 AM
There most likely will be some things said which appear out of line with a current situation yet this is an individual who is needing to flesh out a distraction which has been occupying their mind lately. All of a sudden it becomes urgent to say something which is really from the past, and so why now? Not to appear aggressive yet the final straw is here and so it's time to speak up. Internal dialogue may be the route for some and it is not unlikely that one's words are simply the continuation of their own internal dialogue. The opportunity here is to flesh things out which may have been occupying one's mind in what perhaps typically leads to unproductive moments. An attraction to appreciate self or another can be the motivation also for sharing thoughts. Admirable character may be either talked about or assumed within the context of a communication. When Mercury goes direct Thursday evening a shift in how some communicate occurs, less distraction from past thoughts and more courage to speak to what is current and directly in the moment. Public dynamics can also be triggered because one follows an impulse to blurt something out. If there is a belief which an individual holds which adheres to speaking up for oneself or speaking one's agenda in order for it to get some support than it will likely occur now.

13 Friday June 12th - Moon enters Taurus 10:17 AM
dark Moon Sunday June 14 8:33 AM
Ideas and conversation today will most likely be connected to one's foundational feeling of security. This can include one's self admiration and their belief in an ability to accomplish something of note. The Taurus Moon cycle will have been about establishing clear simplified ideas which are directly connected with practical matters as opposed to unassociated thinking. Sticking to what can translate to real actions as opposed to constant musing and exploring diversity of ideas may have been better established and valued by the individual during this Moon cycle. Sun and Moon conjunct in Gemini as Saturn inches closer to a retrograde Scorpio ingress indicating a potential for bold conversation yet a need to keep it real in terms of where the words and ideas are intended to lead to. Taurus Moon will feel good when simplicity is in place so things will be basic as in increased predictability. The need to know what others think, not necessarily referring to being agreeable yet this is a nice thing, is important because it steers the individual to the real world and assists them in establishing clarity and direction. Saturn will in some cases challenge frivolous words and thinking. The potential of increasing harmony or establishing a new and very good harmony in a relationship is also possible now and during this Moon cycle yet it will for some call to an end of overly independent actions.

14 Sunday June 14th - Moon enters Gemini 1:52 PM
Retrograde Saturn ingress Scorpio Sunday June 14th 8:37 PM
A freedom to speak one's mind may be all the justification needed to raise one's voice. Ideas expressed with big confidence will be a theme for the coming new Moon cycle. Pride in how one deals with or contributes to bold remarks or aggressive conversation is a motivator which will cause some to feel good about themselves. The high ride may not be permeant yet for now confident words do seem to project one's sense of feeling suddenly grand. Ideally the individual will see their connections with others as reflections of their own inner self considerations, and be able to observe beliefs which are associated with social identity. The need to be recognized socially can trigger some to speak with an unusual confidence. Others may be ramping up the internal dialogue. Addressing the admirable character of others can color conversation, as if it's important to be important. The opportunity now is to get some communication moving which had been stuck for whatever reason. As long as the individual does not become sidetracked with concerns as to who they are publicly and is able to stick to the networking and sharing of ideas without such distraction then this can be a productive time.

Soulstar Astrology Appointments

For those interested in personal astrology readings it is important to note that Soulstar Astrology readings are based on the belief that you create your own reality. As such our experiences and most especially our difficulties can be framed as opportunities to evolve toward one's higher plan. As humanity has, in the last several years and continuing now, been going through identity discernment a questioning as to where one is headed and who the self is that is headed there may occur. The understanding of a particular identity will be connected to particular astro alignments and planetary placement. Personal astrology charts show us how things are connected from a vaster perspective. Knowing these connections and perspectives opens the door for more choices. Astrology works well with dates and so consider keeping a record or make a note of some specific date or time frame in which some major dynamic has occurred.

Astrology readings are typically recorded to either CD or tape. If you are interested in setting a date for a session or would like to inquire further feel free to call or check out the web site.
