Gemini Full Moon | Return to the Source

It seems difficult to get any peace and quiet these days. Even when we turn off the tv and social media, it’s as if the noise is still rattling our minds and reverberating in our consciousness.

Recently, I was on the phone with my kinesiologist Roxanne and as I was venting about all the goings on stressing me out she was handed a note from her plumber who’d come to check the noise from her pipes. It said, “EXPANSION NOISE”.

Roxanne’s pipes were apparently expanding from the weather. But something about this message had a deep resonance. There’s an expansion of human consciousness occurring at this moment within the collective. Some insights on the astrology can help enlighten us on the atmosphere and how we can respond…

Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn – revolutionary transformation

Tragically, the Paris terror attacks occurred just as the Uranus-Pluto square was tightening. This is the defining astrological transit of our generation that calls for revolutionary transformation. This same astrological influence that gave rise to terrorist activity is also what brought to our consciousness Occupy Wall Street, the Black Lives Matter movement, Millions Against Monsanto, the Arab Spring and many other ‘revolutions’ both beneficial and destructive. This is the global expansion noise.

Saturn in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces – dissolving belief structures

We are also experiencing the first of three alignments of the Saturn-Neptune square (exact on Friday), another long-term influential transit. What we want to be mindful of at this time is paranoia and fanaticism. This transit has a lot to do with belief. What and whom do we trust? Discernment may not come easy, but the more we can bend, the less chance there is of breaking.

The beauty of the Saturn-Neptune square is it can also provide us the opportunity to create our dreams in the physical world. To manifest our most colorful fantasies and create from our highest beliefs. Inspiration is the key to flying high versus getting swept up in the rip tide of doubt.

Gemini Full Moon – Beginner’s Mind

It’s in this atmosphere that we’ll experience the Gemini Full Moon (exact Wednesday at 5:44pm EST at 3 degrees Gemini) and Thanksgiving in the US. As is characteristic of Gemini, there’s an abundance of communication zipping around. Sharing information is a way for us to make sense of our world, to connect with others and to be entertained.

But what we’re being invited to do with the Gemini Full Moon is to distinguish knowledge from wisdom.

Full Moons are about balancing the polarity of the influence of the Moon (Gemini) and the Sun (Sagittarius). Sagittarius is the guru to Gemini’s student. The Sun, Mercury and Saturn are in Sagittarius, sign of higher wisdom, spirituality and belief. For belief to have an impact, there needs to be more than an abundance of facts and water-tight arguments. It requires faith and a resonance of truth.

And the truest path to access deep wisdom is with a beginner’s mind. Gemini aligns us with our childhood, a time when our minds were open, curious and impressionable. The insight of 3 degrees Gemini translated by Dane Rudhyar is a “return to the source.”

As beings on a path of evolving consciousness, we must reflect on what’s been stirred up inside of us from recent events. If the answers can’t be found in your usual belief system, perhaps it’s time to open a new door of perception.

Jupiter, planet of expansion, spirituality and optimism, is at the September eclipse degree of 20 Virgo and ruling much of the sky at this time. Jupiter in Virgo is calling us to rise to the occasion and be of service. It’s aligned with Chiron in Pisces, planet of soul gifts, encouraging us that our talents have the ability to heal.

Jupiter also rules ritual and ceremony. If at any time the emotional burdens become too great, know that you don’t have to shoulder them alone. Energetically give them up to your Angels, guides or ancestors. Any ritual, no matter how small or elaborate, can be magically powerful at this time.

Thanksgiving is a sacred celebration of opening our eyes to the gift we have of loved ones in our lives. Let’s return to our personal source of nourishment. Sharing this holiday season with those we care about is truly worthy of our deepest gratitude.

{Neptune direct} Dissolving Boundaries + Law of Attraction


The Moon recently entered Pisces and will be joining the sign ruler, Neptune – planet of mysticism, dreams, fantasy, escapism, and sorrow.

Neptune is currently stationing direct and it’s steering us into the ocean of the collective. Neptune dissolves the boundaries that keep us safely shut away from the rest of humanity.

During a shift of Neptune, we may find that the usual forms of solace we turn to – spiritual practices, alcohol, music, art – may no longer be sufficient to ease the turbulence within. Now is the time to find peace with the knowing that we’re all beings intrinsically connected to the one soul consciousness.

Since June, Neptune has had us turn inward to understand ourselves and seek answers. But now, Neptune wants us to integrate into the collective. Some will be called to act, some will be called to pray, some will be called to create… we each have our unique calling.

But we’re all being called.

Saturn is moving to square Neptune – I’ll have more to say about this next week – and Saturn symbolizes our ability to create in the world what we intend and dream (Neptune).

Law of Attraction is strong with Saturn-Neptune contacts so it’s especially powerful at this time. Keep your eyes out for how quickly your intentions create your reality.

If the outer world isn’t yet reflecting your desires, keep envisioning, believing and speaking them into reality. Times like these forge your faith into your diamond heart.

Scorpio New Moon | Behind the Curtain

We’re officially in bed with the Scorpion now.

Scorpio is the sign of all that goes on behind the curtain and in the dark. The secrets, the lies, the passion, the ritual, the clandestine.

And the mystic.


Scorpio likes the dark. But with today’s New Moon exact at 12:47pm EST, there’s an urgent need to turn the light on what we’ve been avoiding around our pain, shame and resentments. Our intuition can be that light.

On Monday, the Scorpio Sun illuminated Chiron in Pisces, representing our soul wounds and those of the collective. Today, the Scorpio Moon joins this trine aspect, so the opportunity for a moment of healing what feels deep and ancient is possible (as it happens, to day is Veteran’s Day in the US and Remembrance Day in many other countries). The symbol mentions a “sacred pathway” being revealed. Our soul wounds are sacred, as is our attempts at healing them. [Reminder, my limited-time Chiron healing package special offer ends tomorrow, Nov 12]

Scorpio is private, mostly because they’re obsessed with control, either real or perceived. This may be an uncomfortable time for Scorpios because much of what they hold dear in the way of secrets, resentments and devotion is being challenged.

Astrologer Michele Adler’s research on 19 degrees of the Scorpio/Taurus axis reveals the theme of “that which can no longer be ignored”.

Mars, the traditional ruler of Scorpio is currently at the last degree of demanding Virgo and applying to the lunar North Node of Destiny, so there’s a sense of urgency toward what must be addressed. With messenger Mercury approaching the New Moon, this likely involves a conversation or an awareness that’s long overdue.

Venus in her rulership of Libra might just be the saving grace to achieve balance and harmony. Whether that means reconcile or separate, it’s likely the feeling is mutual. The important thing is to clarify assumptions.

Today’s November 11 (11-11) New Moon carries with it the psychic energy of the powerful vibration of ‘1’, a master number. This is an especially potent day for ritual, intention setting and awareness of signs from the Universe.

Ultimately, New Moons are fertile ground to plant seeds of our future intentions. This Scorpio New Moon wants you to do a bit of weeding first in order for the soil to be rich and fertile for your deepest desires to be optimally nourished. Think of it as enhancing your alignment to your truth and purpose.

Join me today at 11:11am EST for a very special #passthelight Periscope at @radiantastro. I’ll be joined by my sister mystics as we celebrate the powerful 11:11 energy and the Diwali festival of abundance by sharing our prosperity rituals.

Wishing you an illuminating and prosperous Scorpio New Moon!

{Venus in Libra} Beauty, beauty everywhere!


Venus, planet of love, harmony and beauty, has just entered Libra, the sign she rules where she will be for the next 30 days. Venus LOVES being in Libra. Where she felt restricted and criticized in Virgo, she’s now liberated to create, forgive and enjoy life a bit. Quite a breath of fresh air!

We’re now in the Balsamic Moon phase, the 3 days leading up the the New Moon. These days are traditionally known as dark days where we turn inward and listen for the stirring inside of what wants to be created for the New Moon. I’ll have more to say about Wednesday’s Scorpio New Moon on 11:11 (November 11) which promises to be an enlightening one.

While we’re still in the depths of the emotional Scorpio season with warrior Mars barreling through critical Virgo, Venus in her rulership can help to lighten the atmosphere with her grace and understanding. Venus is transiting the North Node of Destiny so she’s helping to elevate our relationships and our sense of balance and fairness.

This might look like…

Seeing another person’s point of view.

Being moved by someone’s expression of loyalty to you.

Creating beautiful art with tears streaming down your face.

Speaking the truth, but doing so with kindness and care.

Agreeing to disagree.



There are many scenarios in how this can play out. Allow Venus to help find harmony in situations that may have seemed unworkable. Open your eyes and see the beauty all around you, even in the situations that may be painful or challenging.

We’ll have more opportunities to find kindness in ourselves and to express it around us. There is a popular quote “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” This pretty much sums up the current astrological picture.

On Monday, the Sun in Scorpio is moving into a trine with Chiron, the soul healer, which can help us to see where we need to focus to create wholeness and healing in our lives.

Taurus Full Moon ~ Uncompromising Gratification


I love a Taurus Full Moon. The Moon is exalted in Taurus and I find these Moons are often an invitation to indulge in pleasures of the senses. This lunation is a Supermoon as the Moon is closest to the Earth, so the craving for satisfaction can be strong.

The Full Moon in Taurus is exact at 8:05am EST on Oct 27 at Taurus 4 degrees. The Supermoon lures us to kick back and enjoy some pampering and nourishment and the temptation for gratification will likely be irresistible.

Taurus is often considered ‘stubborn’ because of it’s Earth and Fixed qualities, but perhaps a more fitting term is ‘uncompromising’. What are your non-negotiables when it comes to truly feeling grounded, nourished and satiated? Whereas Libra – the other Venus-ruled sign – craves balance and harmony, the buck stops with Taurus. That’s not to say that tenderness is off the table, so long as self-worth accompanies it.

Value is the realm of Taurus and it’s worth asking ourselves what we truly value. Do our values reflect our lives? Is our self-worth a guiding light or has it been snuffed out in favor of unattainable notions of harmony? This is a time to sense where you stand in the value you place on yourself.

The opposing Scorpio Sun adds intensity of emotion to this Full Moon. Scorpio rules sex, passion, desire, obsession, emotional bonding – and also shame. What hidden desires have been neglected or buried underneath shame? Scorpio is anything but shallow and whatever is buried in the depths of the subconscious is illuminated by the Sun. Acknowledge what emotions come up so that they no longer control you from behind the scenes.

Ruling this Full Moon is the love goddess Venus in Virgo, flanked by warrior Mars, expansive Jupiter and opposed by soulful Chiron in Pisces. The possibilities are endless with this mingling of impulses but what’s clear is that issues around love aren’t light, easy or simple. They can actually touch us very deeply at this time.

But what’s also worth keeping in mind is our ability to impact others at a profound level. Venus-Chiron speaks to deep, soulful connections. Be mindful of your ability to witness another’s soul nature and what a gift that is, even if it’s just a glimpse.

Beyond the glamour, drama and expectations of others, this Full Moon allows us an opportunity to discover our authentic desires and where we are no longer willing to compromise. And what’s sexier than knowing your true self?




We’re finally clearing from the powerful vortex that was this summer’s eclipse season. Mercury is direct and Venus is out of shadow.

This summer was anything but boring.

Some of us have been shaken up or shaken loose because of the effect of the great sh*t-stirrer Uranus opposing the Libra New Moon alignment. Whether we’ve rebelled or been rebelled against, now we have a better view of where things stand. A more clear, honest view.

And that’s a good thing.

New Moons give us an opportunity to set intentions for the future and for those intentions to eventually blossom, if given the right conditions. As this New Moon is ruled by Libra – sign of balance, harmony, relationships – this is an opportunity to re-create and re-define for ourselves what harmony looks like in our lives.

Harmony without authenticity, however, is stifling and can eventually become toxic.

Uranus’ ultimate goal is freedom. Whether that means breaking a few taboos, shattering a false image or physically getting some space, if you’ve been at the receiving end of this drive you mustn’t take it personally. Similarly, if you’re the one who requires freedom from something or someone, try not to feel guilty about this impulse.

The need for freedom is a vital component of the expression of life force.

The Sun and Moon are now separating from one another and from their clash with Uranus. The dust is beginning to settle. What have you learned? What’s this new vantage point tell you?

If speaking your truth means that the other person has to re-adjust their perception of you, perhaps that’s the new normal of the relationship. Balance can still be found even if harmony can’t. Ultimately, harmony with yourself and your true expression is what’s key.

With these new insights, create your New Moon intentions in a way that allows for kindness over niceness and expansion over contraction. CLICK TO TWEET THIS OUT

Eventually, we’ll thank Uranus for crashing our Libra New Moon party and adding a bit of color and light.
