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 September 20-27, 2020...shining light on the astrology of the week: Autumnal Equinox

Mars’ tense square to Pluto and Saturn pushes limits and edges, and keeps things moving.

As the week begins we move through the dark Moon, a time to finish projects and take some space for yourself, especially on Wednesday. Mars turned stationary retrograde on September 9th, and Jupiter turned stationary direct on Saturday, September 12th. The retrograde count is still strong with five planets, asteroid Ceres, and Chiron in backward motion, and so we continue working in the underground of numerous planetary energies in backward motion. Jupiter direct now will likely bring improvements, after four months in retrograde. The direct motion of the planet of expansion signals a time to move forward with business

In the Stars September 6-13, 2020...shining light on the astrology of the week

This week carries a great deal of strength and energy. Mars turns stationary retrograde on Wednesday, amplifying Mars’ themes of courage, inspiration, and initiative. The Mars stationary energy this week may be aggressive, and result in more uproar and explosions. On a personal level, exercise vigorously and maintain a level-headed attitude in heated situations. Jupiter turns direct on Saturday the 12th after four months in retrograde motion. This signals a time to move forward with business plans, amplify your expectations, and manifest abundance.
