In Memory of George Floyd~ Saturn Retrogade in Aquarius

In Memory of George Floyd

 May 25th, 2020

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  

As Saturn,the planet of justice, retrogrades in Aquarius, the sign symbolic of community, brotherhood, and humanity, we as a people will have hard lessons to learn about human rights, dignity, and social justice. Let us come together and stand for a better future- a future that embraces all races, creeds, and ethnicities with equal respect, empathy, and love.


Alvin Ailey, A True Capricorn Spirit~

The creative process is not controlled by a switch you can simply turn on or off; it’s with you all the time. Alvin Ailey

Alvin Ailey’s horoscope is a wild display of legacy, life long commitment, and courageous leadership. When looking at his photo I can not help be see the resemblance of the goat persona Capricorn is so famous for. His piercing eyes, his chiseled jawline, and perfectly trimmed ‘ goatee’.  He is the quintessential goat not only in image but also soul and spirit, as his chart clearly reveals. 

What’s most striking in his chart is the intimate connection between the Sun and Saturn at 14 degrees of Capricorn. In astrology this tight planetary embrace is known as cazimi or “in the heart of the Sun”. When a planet is “in the heart of the Sun”, its power is amplified and adds a special charisma to the Sun’s rays. 

In Mr. Ailey’s case the connection is even more powerful as Saturn happens to also be the ruler of Capricorn, the zodiac’s most serious sign. Saturn is also known as the ruler of “fate” and points to one’s destiny. It is a planet that rewards hard work with lasting achievement. Now, moving toward yet another decade in the 21st century, the Ailey Spirit continues to shine brightly, as if indeed in the heart of the Sun.

Full Moon in Capricorn

Full Moon in Capricorn

The hardest work is to go idle. Jewish Proverb

Full moon in Capricorn

The full moon in Capricorn will unite with Saturn, the planet of perseverance and maturity (as well as the ruler of Capricorn). A turning point will arrive that will invite you to take on a higher level of responsibility and achievement.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius Shines on James Comey’s Testimony, and the Truth

The full moon in Sagittarius, Truth will come- with a price.

It is a necessary provision to understand that it is impossible to prevent everything. 
Jean-Jacques Rousseau                      

Sagittaris full moon

Sagittarius James Comey’s testimony with the U.S. Senate comes at the full moon in Sagittarius, the sign of higher truth, and intelligence. Like Mr. Comey, we will all have an opportunity to state our truth in a particular area of our life- but it won’t be a walk in the park. The full moon will have a heavy weight on its shoulders, as it will be in close contact with Saturn, the planet of restriction, delay, and conformity (and also the planet associated with the government, hence, in Comey’s case, President Donald Trump). Saturn entered Sagittarius in 2014 on Christmas Eve, and will enter Capricorn on December 19, 2017. If you are a Sagittarius, you have likely felt the weight of Saturn’s influence since 2015.

A promotion, travel opportunity, or educational pursuit has likely tested you in many ways, and required you to focus on a singular vision. This comes to mind in Comey’s case regarding the e-mails of Hillary Clinton, and most recently the investigation of Russia. As a mutable fire sign, Sagittarius by nature is heroic and adventurous, and thrives off freedom, so you may feel uncomfortable in your skin as you make the adjustment to adhering to the structure and order that Saturn demands.

The good news (especially if you’re a Sagittarius), is that Jupiter, the planet that rules Sagittarius, will awaken from a four month retrograde and station direct on the same day of the arrival of the full moon-timing so fabulous you would think it’s a gift from God! Now in Libra, the sign of justice, Jupiter’s power will gain momentum, and encourage you to remain as diplomatic as possible as you navigate new territory (sound a bit like Comey’s current plight- doesn’t it)?  This may involve a legal case, business partnership, or romantic relationship. You’ll likely have new knowledge that will help you see the bigger picture so you can tap in your wisdom, and capitalize on your best option.

Ultimately, this full moon will mark the end of a certain way of life, making you “grow up”, and face reality not as you would like to see it, but as it really is. Sagittarius is known for being the zodiac’s most optimistic sign, however, so even if your reality is far from ideal (as with Mr. Comey), the fire of Sagittarius will help you stay light on your feet, and look on the brighter side of the truth.

Lessons from the Sagittarius Full Moon are as follows:


ARIES (March 21- April 19)

A higher goal will likely reach and end point. Reflect on all that you’ve learned so you can continue to develop into your full potential. If you’re in a global pursuit, you may reach an impasse, which likely be blessing, in the long run. A citizenship matter will likely be completed, if you’d like to relocate- and the outcome will likely have a sobering effect.

TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)

Trust will be the main theme for you in your closest relationship, and within your business, if you’re an entrepreneur or in finance. This full moon will teach you there is great value in conservation, and taking a spiritual approach to your material life. Once you’re willing to give you what you’ve got, you’ll realize you have more than enough to sustain you.


GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Opposition from an authority figure will likely make you take a second look at your relationship- which is probably overdue for examination. As soon as you think you have a clearing, you’ll likely be delayed- have patience Gemini, as the full moon has an important lesson to pass  on. Abide by the rules, and you’ll gain the wisdom required to make a breakthrough, just in the nick of time.


CANCER (June 22-July 22)

You’ve likely make great strides in your work, but now you may be too wiped out to celebrate your success. Take time to rest, and settle in to a new confidence you’ve recently gained, as this will help you shift into a higher gear that will allow for less momentum, and a smoother ride.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Well, Leo, looks like it’s time to see the writing on the wall when it comes to a matter of the heart. If you’re a parent, your child will likely challenge you to rise to the occasion, and enact your authority. Although this may be hard for you (as you have soft heart), it will be the best thing you can do for child’s future. In romance, you’ll be ready to commit, or move on – either way, your heart will likely know best.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Although home, family, or emotional matter may leave you feeling slightly despondent, you’ll also feel grounded, and secure. Take stock of the work you’ve put into creating a solid home base, and you’ll realize you’ve done a fine job. This full moon will likely show you that responsibility comes with sacrifice, but the reward you receive will have lasting value.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

However difficult it might be to make a final decision, the full moon will compel you to make up your mind, despite the consequences. Although it may feel as though you’ve been shoved in a corner, it’s likely you’ve had ample time to see all sides of your circumstances. Now is the time to trust in the power of your logic, and move on.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Hold on to what you have Scorpio, but not too tightly. This will be your lesson as the full moon illuminates your chart’s arena of income and ownership (the second house). Although you may not be entirely happy about the outcome of business endeavor or financial goal, at least now you can come to a full acceptance of where things stand- which will lead you becomming a fiscal master.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Where you end and your duty begins will likely draw a bold line between your integrity and responsibility. The best thing you can do for yourself, and everyone involved, is stand by your truth, as this will likely be the ultimate constituent  that shines light of what you’re made of. You’re much more solid that you think, Sagittarius, but you must vehemently defend yourself before you can tap into your greatest resource; your inner strength is as solid as gold.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A recovery will likely take longer than you expected- which will likely send you in a deep state of inner reflection. You may think you somehow missed an important step that would have allowed you to avoid what you’re now experiencing- but it’s likely the opposite is true. Cherish the time you now have to heal- and the light of the moon will renew your faith.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

A close friendship may reach a turning point, which will likely affect you deeply, as Aquarius is the sign of camaraderie, and good will. Try not to take it personally if you feel slighted by someone you’ve known for a long time. It’s likely the full moon is sending you a special message- it likely has to do with expanding your social circle, and taking on a greater role of leadership.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Sometimes when you reach the top, the view looks different than you imagined. You’ll likely find this true as the full moon illuminates the pinnacle of your chart. Trust you’re exactly where you need to be however, despite how uncomfortable it may feel. It’s time to draw the curtains, Pisces, but know that now you’ll be ready for a bigger and better role.

It’s June!

It’s June!

We all carry a new world within our hearts. Buenaventura Berruti


It's June!

June begins with a beautiful alignment between Venus and Saturn. A romantic relationship will likely become serious, if you’ve been dating someone who’s a good match for you. As the planet of maturity, Saturn’s influence will encourage you to commit to that which you will know will expand your life, while Venus will bring out your passionate side, and encourage you to take a risk.

As the planet of attraction, Venus loves money, so if you’re about to launch a new business endeavor, this cosmic duo will likely give you the momentum you need to get started on the right foot. Loyalty will go a long way as the month progresses. Go out of your way to show someone that you can be his or rock, and your relationship will solidify, like gold.

Happy New Year! Your Weekly Horoscope for the New Year, 2015~

Your Weekly Horoscope for the New Year, 2015

Saturn emerges in Sagittarius

Saturn in Sagittarius

Pray to God and pry the hammer.


Saturn entered Sagittarius on December 23 for a 6 month stay, and will retrograde back into Scorpio from June until September of this year. After September 15, Saturn will settle in Sagittarius for two years, until December 19, 2017. You will likely feel the shift as the New Year begins, which will get you focused in a fresh new direction for personal growth.

Saturn, like all planets (and people), has attributes and downfalls. In astrology, one’s Saturn return, the time when Saturn returns to the same place when one was born, has become a phenomenon in its self. It is a kind of rite of passage into real adulthood, maturity, and wisdom.

As the New Year begins, there may be several aspects of yourself you would like to change, improve upon, or completely revamp. You may want to get more organized, have more fun, manage your money better, or show your softer side to your sweetheart, yet become more assertive at work. The possibilities are endless! Saturn’s entrance into Sagittarius will enable you to get clear on where to put your energy…where your life’s circumstances will clearly say-                     you need to work on this.

Here’s a preamble~

ARIES (March 21- April 19)

 You have probably had a chance to clean house while Saturn was in Scorpio-triggering your chart’s arena of deep intimacy, financial investments, and debt. As Saturn continues to travel through Sagittarius, legal matters, academia, and international affairs will be areas that will offer you growth, wisdom, and ultimate mastery. At times what you believe in most may be severely challenged, only for you to discover what in-fact is more real than you ever thought, the power of your own inner certainty.

TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)

 Now that Saturn has left your partnership sign of Scorpio, you have developed mastery in relating to others on an equal basis, and your closest relationship has probably reaped many benefits of this. As Saturn continues through Sagittarius, you will be challenged to ‘let go’, both psychologically and materially. One of your most important lessons will likely revolve around developing a deeper trust with your closest partner.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

 Work, work, and more work was likely the focus for you for these past two years while Saturn was in Scorpio, highlighting your daily routine and overall well-being. Your health may have presented many challenges, especially throughout a demanding work schedule. As Saturn gets comfortable in Sagittarius, partnership, reciprocity, and one on one collaboration will areas where you can learn the most, and celebrate your highest achievements.


CANCER (June 22-July 22)

 If single, dating has probably been more work than fun, as you made the decision to get serious about finding someone who’s right for you, long term. If attached, you may have had differences with your partner about conceiving a child, or if you have children, you may have had to solidify your authority and take on more responsibility. Saturn’s emergence into Sagittarius will likely put the pressure on at work, and compel you to be more diligent with organizing your daily activities. Efficiency will become your golden rule.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

 You may have recently moved, or made a big change with your family or personal life as Saturn traveled through Scorpio, and hit the very bottom of your chart, the host of your most personal feelings ad experiences. As Saturn settles in Sagittarius, romance, risk taking, and your creative expression will become the ground work for self- mastery. If you want to have a child, you’ll put your all into it, which will become a beautiful lesson of self- discovery.


VIRGO (August. 23-Sept. 22)

You may have had wires crossed in many directions as a result of Saturn’s stay in Scorpio, which oversees your chart’s communication hub. Either crucial information was withheld from you, or you felt as though no matter how hard you tried, you couldn’t get your message across. Now that Saturn has moved to Sagittarius, information will likely flow freely, and clearly. A home, family matter, or real estate investment will likely soon turn into a major life project, and success.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

 Money was a serious matter for you as Saturn journeyed through Scorpio, lighting up your charts arena of earned income, assets, and personal values. A budgetary diet may have become the norm for you for the past two years. Now that Saturn has moved on to Sagittarius, you’ll have many an opportunity to learn about your communication style. You may embark on a writing project, promotional campaign, or decide that sales is where it’s at for you, especially if it involves a global market.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

 Ah, now you can breathe dear Scorpio! Saturn is out of your sign, not to return to Scorpio until November 12, 2041, in other words, a very long time!! Not that Saturn’s all that bad, but when it’s in you sign, you can really feel the pressure. Now, on to your money. It’s time to excel in your special talent so you can have long-lasting financial security. Saturn’s journey through Sagittarius will demand you take command of your financial affairs and stand by your highest value.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

 You have likely experienced a tremendous healing during Saturn’s visit to Scorpio, which resides in your charts arena of unconscious patterns, imagination, and spirituality. If you’re an artist, you have had a rough time maintaining your optimism, and may have wondered, is it really worth it? No matter what your dream, now that Saturn is in Sagittarius, the answer will be an undeniable yes! This is because Saturn promises results: a legacy, material security, and worldly achievement. If you’re not ready for it Saturn by December 19, 2017, when Saturn bids Sagittarius goodbye, you will be!


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

 Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn, so you are naturally comfortable with Saturn’s energy, which exudes discipline, prudence, and sophistication. Saturn’s journey through Scorpio probably taught you a lesson or two about true friendship. You may have let go of people in your life, only to be left with those who really matter, a lifelong gift. Now that Saturn has moved on to Sagittarius, your inner life will demand your attention. What truly satisfies you from within will likely take the spotlight of your life, and ground you like nothing else can.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

 Your life path may have gotten you a bit down these past two years as Saturn’s journey through Scorpio peaked at the top of your chart, where you destiny lies to be seen by all. Just what exactly you wanted to do with your life may have consumed you like never before. Now, you are likely on track, and playing it cool, (Aquarius’s specialty). As Saturn slides deeper into Sagittarius, (not to leave until December 19, 2017), you have the opportunity to learn about making your grandest vision a reality, and bringing the VIPs on board to seal the deal.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

 Faith- a belief that there is a God, a force, a spirit of optimism, has likely been your golden lesson, and made you especially wise. Saturn’s journey through Scorpio channeled you into your chart’s ninth house, where your personal life philosophy reigns. Now that (through experience), you’ve become a master of your own faith, you’ll be compelled to create a legacy. What shape this will take is of course completely up to you, but as Saturn gets comfortable in Sagittarius, you’ll likely become a leader whose reach will be unlimited.

Chynna Phillips Voted Off Dancing With The Stars, A Full Moon Culmination

Aires Full Moon Conjoining Saturn

An Aires Full Moon Moment

Last night’s full moon in Aires culminated with the elimination of Chynna Phillips on Dancing With The Stars. ‘I’m a fighter’, was a final statement after Monday’s faltering performance. ‘I saw the smoke and couldn’t see’…it happens to the best of us at the worst of times. When the pressure is on, the best judgement can easily be clouded. Chynna is an Aquarius, so I think Neptune may have been fooling with her a little on Monday, unfortunately.

Chynna is best known for the hit song  “Hold On For One More Day” from 90’s popular sister trio Wilson Phillips.  Chynna’s Saturn is in Aires, and last night the full moon was giving Saturn a nudge. Although she was clearly disappointed, she took it in stride, most likely because she had to!  It was  magnificent to see…a moment where one must instantly find the courage to stand tall after such a grand defeat.

I think this is what famed spiritual astrologer Isabel Hickey meant when she labeled the Saturn in Aires placement the ‘ test of self centeredness’. With  help from last night’s full moon, Chynna passed the test; her elimination from Dancing With The Stars has given her enough strength to hold on for another life time!
