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 August 30 - September 6, 2020...shining light on the astrology of the week: Full Moon

The Bay area wildfires are moving towards containment, but are still active. The Democratic and Republican conventions are behind us, but now the campaigns begin. Hurricane Laura has made landfall and devastated parts of the south, though hurricane season is just beginning. Covid-19 deaths continue; I don’t think much has changed in that landscape. Planetary energy remains intense, volatile, and challenging throughout September, due to Mars making a tense square to Pluto and Saturn, turning retrograde on September 9. Yet, there is some good news as several planets are in their own or exalted signs much of September. If we incorporate the Vedic, sidereal, perspective with the Western, tropica

In the Stars August 23-30, 2020...shining light on the astrology of the week

I turned on the news on this past Thursday, August 20th, for an update on the wildfires, and the headlines were: Steve Bannon arrested for fraud regarding money raised for the southern border wall, Chicago plane crash, two tropical storms forming, fierce wild fires in California, and the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Wow! This was also the night that Joe Biden accepted the Democratic nomination for President. I do not like to be alarming, and yet as I write this post fires burn all around me like never before in Northern California, and we face threats of more dry lightening the next two days that could spark more fires. The planetary energy this week, which is my birthday week, and the week

In the Stars August 16-23, 2020...shining light on the astrology of the week: New Moon

The extreme temperature in the west corresponds with the extreme heat of the planets. Go carefully and mindfully, and keep yourself cool.

In the Stars August 9-16, 2020...shining light on the astrology of the week

A bold, tense, edgy Mars-Pluto square colors the week ahead. Go carefully and cautiously in the face of explosive energy. The aspect perfects at midnight Wednesday PDT, making Wednesday and Thursday particularly volatile. The Sun shines in its ruling sign Leo where it is strong, courageous, and playful. The summer solar energy is constrained. Uranus joins the retrograde brigade on Saturday to bring the number of planets moving backwards to eight, making it even more difficult to move forward.

In the Stars August 2 - 9, 2020...shining light on the astrology of the week: Full Moon

The Sun shines in Leo tropically, 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. Beach Sunset by Pat Harden The Full Moon alignment on Monday, August 3rd, squares Uranus, giving volatility and intensity. Mars and Jupiter square off on Tuesday, energy that is pushy, so push for good and to move work forward. ***** On Sunday the Moon exactly conjuncts Saturn, while the Sun exactly squares Uranus.
