I love working with astrology and helping people with the cycles of their lives. In my thirty-five years of experience as an astrologer, I have helped people deal with difficult times, learn more about themselves, figure out a place to relocate, improve their relationships, and strategize about their career.

I have been writing a practical weekly blog about the astrological influences for ten years. The blog is written not only to help people make the best use of the planetary energies of each day, but to also grow in their knowledge of astrology.

In the Stars July 26-August 2, 2020...shining light on the astrology of the week

The Sun has just moved into Leo, the sign it rules and where it is strong, symbolizing boldness, courage, strength, and creativity. It is the time of year for summer vacation and play, though now that energy is constrained. Two asteroids and five planets are still retrograde: Ceres, Pallas Athena, Saturn, Chiron, Pluto, Jupiter, and Neptune. Mercury is now out of its shadow. The early part of the week is influenced by the exact Jupiter-Neptune conjunction, amplifying creativity and imagination. The end of the week is full of tension with Saturn at the Jupiter-Pluto midpoint and the Moon highlight this stellium on Sunday. The Full Moon alignment on Monday, August 3rd, squares Uranus, giving

In the Stars July 19-26, 2020...shining light on the astrology of the week: New Moon

The next few days are still intense with the Sun opposite Saturn, correlating with the restrictive situation we all are experiencing with the increase of COVID-19 and resulting restrictions. The New Moon on Monday opposes Saturn, a further correlation of the contracting energy that will be with us at least for the next month. The week ahead holds the Sun’s shift from Cancer into Leo on Wednesday, August 22. We shift from the summer focus on home and family to the more exuberant energy of fixed fire Leo. The Sun is at its best in Leo, its ruling sign, and symbolizes boldness, courage, strength, and creativity. It is the time of year for summer vacation and play, though at this time that energ

In the Stars July 12-19, 2020...shining light on the astrology of the week

Mercury turns direct on Sunday, July 12th, though it will still be in its shadow until July 26th, so there can still be a bit of confusion, some mix-ups, and mechanical breakdowns. The Sun is in its final week in tropical Cancer, drawing us to home, family, tradition, and issues of security. While Mercury turns direct, Chiron turns retrograde joining asteroid Pallas Athena and Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter, and Neptune in backwards motion. This week the Sun opposes the Jupiter/Pluto/Saturn alignment. Using the energy for good, we are called to stretch into our power and make great strides. At its worst, these opposing alignments with the Sun may correspond with extreme power and manipulation. We wi

In the Stars July 5-12, 2020...shining light on the astrology of the week: Lunar Eclipse

The third of the three summer eclipses occurs on Saturday, July 4th, at 9:44 p.m. p.m. PDT, or July 5th at 0:44 EDT, this one being a Full Moon penumbral Lunar Eclipse at 13:38 degrees Capricorn. The week ahead will be calmer with the three eclipses behind us. During the solar month of Cancer the focus is on home, family, tradition, and issues of security. Five planets and asteroid Pallas Athena are retrograde: Mercury, Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter, and Neptune. With Mercury retrograde for one more week, in addition to other planets, it is a good time to review, re-think, reconsider, and re-construct. Communication is sometimes confused, so be patient with mix-ups. Mechanical and technological bre
