WEEK 1

After a wonderful Sun-filled week we fall back into emotional territory. Expect a lot of highs and lows to be the norm as you go throughout the week with the Scorpio/Pisces/Taurus (water & earth) and Libra/Leo/Sagittarius (air & fire) juxtaposition happening every other day. With that being said, this is NOT the week to make snap judgments or big decisions if you can help it. Maintaining your center will be hard enough and you may be swayed in a direction that doesn't serve you. There is still so much internal and energetic shifting happening behind the scenes. Lean on those habits that help you remain focused such as: *getting your "to do" list out of your head and onto paper *enlisting the help of others to get things done *staying on top of exercise, sleep, hydration, and meditation *spreading out your social engagements across weeks instead of days to allow for more flexibility

Most importantly though....drop down into your heart. Love without agenda. You can remain open and still maintain boundaries. It doesn't hurt to love (since you are simply sharing what is Real, which is limitless) and you never know how much you affect and influence another. The waning half moon--or 3rd quarter square--is the perfect time to do energetic release work. If there is some clearing you need to do or cord cutting, align it with that time and leading into the new moon for greatest effect. As a final note, things will shift radically for the better come the end of next week, so hang in there!

WEEK 2

The week begins with an easy breezy flow of healing, restoration, and rejuvenation from the Sun trine Neptune transit. This can also be a great day to reconnect to your creativity and dreams to help you plan your week. Uranus asks us to revisit our individual integrity - how are we showing up in our relationships, in our work? Have we slipped a bit into old patterns over the past week. Is that Sun/Neptune trine making us nostalgic? Uranus will help to snap us out of it! Wednesday brings us a powerful new moon in Scorpio, the sign that's been getting so much attention over the last few years. This is the signal of the beginning of the closing out of that longer Venus cycle. Celebrate it and continue focusing on developing "New Mind, New Emotions, New Body" for the coming cycle. PLUS, this is the day that the North Node shifts into its new position for the next 1.5 years! And the transit we've all be waiting for....Jupiter returning to its home sign of Sagittarius! I'm so excited about this 12 month transit and ALL the abundance, opportunities, and spiritual/personal development on hand for us. Give thanks in advance for what you're stepping into!! We finish the week with a punch - a day for making power moves and standing in your power. Make it a great one!

WEEK 3

It's another light week of minimal transits. I'm sure if you've been reading the weekly astrology forecasts for a while then you know that when there's minimal transits happening we feel the effects of the moon more intensely. The moon makes many aspects in any given day to the different planets just because it changes signs so quickly. We tend to not notice during 'busier' astrological weeks because the other planetary influences are so much more powerful. But, take those away and the bare energy of up and down emotions abound. Take note of the 'random' self-sabotaging thoughts or feelings that pop up this week. Don't worry - it's not real. Wait until you return back to a place of neutrality before making decisions. Objectivity will keep you sane and on track this week. Be gentle with yourself. The exciting news though is that by the time we get to the end of the week, the vibe totally shifts! We have Mars FINALLY leaving Aquarius and getting off of the sign where the South Node (representing old patterns & contracts) has been for the past 1.5 years. Then we have Venus leaving her incubation time of retrograde. She will turn direct in her home sign of Libra slowly making her way out of the 'underworld' from her 40 day journey. The waxing moon (1st quarter square) happens at this time as well too bringing inspiration, ideas, innovation, and new relationships. The period of expansion ramps up from the Scorpio new moon last week! Then of course we have Mercury turning retrograde.... I actually don't think this one will be so bad. I think the mental break being offered with this transit is one where we can effectively discern what we just cane out of over the last 2 months, where we've shifted, and where to make minor adjustments in our trajectory. We'll dance again with our hopes, dreams, and wishes. Are we committed now more than ever?

WEEK 4

We start the week with an important check-in being offered by the conversation between Mars and Jupiter regarding our ambition and our self-care. Jupiter is behaving more like Mars and vice versa. Have you noticed that it's little harder to keep your mind and emotions (and anxiety) in check over the past week? It's almost like dealing with a wild stallion that we're trying to tame. We want to run free with it but also understand that it's not sustainable in the long run. Our deeper sense of self love & care bubbles to the surface to remind us--often hourly--to take it easy and be more measured in what/who we give our time and energy to. Tuesday and Wednesday are great days to slow down significantly and rest. You may also find greater clarity on areas that are ready, willing, and available for healing. Thursday will be a high energy day but I'm not sure it's a good thing. The Gemini/Sagittarius axis that's highlighted will induce extremes--please watch out for arguments, short tempers, etc. This will pass quickly so consider the consequences of momentary actions.... The weekend returns brilliant healing energy as Neptune goes direct, signaling the beginning emergence out of the foggy waters. Sunday is the true day of gratitude and thanks-giving! Give praises to the Most High and spend time with family & friends; you deserve it!
