New Moon Musings: how to navigate the “Pisces Flood Zone”
Let Your Freak Flag Fly
Pisces is the last sign in the sacred wheel of 12 celestial archetypes. As the last sign, Pisces serves as a cosmic vessel, like a cauldron holding the dream of life, flavored by the ingredients of dreams, magic, imagination, spirit and compassion. Pisces has the ability to open the doors to alternative perceptions of reality, step through portals and enter completely different realms. Pisces is the embodiment of mystery: tantalizing, magnetic, otherworldly and hard to grasp.

As Uranus makes its final and once every 84 year cycle through the last degrees of Aries, consider how you feel different? How do you stand outside the mainstream, dance to the beat of a different drummer? Fly your freak flag high? What kind of support do you need? Who is your tribe? How do you reach out to connect and heal from the wounds of your exile?
Magically Mundane with the Full Moon in Pisces
Imagine Venus. Picture her as goddess, archetype, planet, or myth. See her peach gold hue, her rose kissed skin. Venus is sweet dusk haze, and pure morning light. Her voice speaks grace, and her words breath charm. Beauty, both inner and outer is her realm, and her magic: pure honey dust, sprinkled freely on lovers, artists and peacemakers alike. She dispenses her precarious sparkle of romance and pleasure with loving care and exquisite danger, uncaring of consequences, and blind to remorse. Yet Venus also thrives amongst peace and harmony, revels in the hush of the sated senses, and awakens wherever creativity lives.
Uranus into Taurus on May 15: Mama Earth Wakes Up

How to Read Your Horoscope
Uranus moves into Taurus on May 16 and it’s almost as if Mother Nature puts her hand up and says “hold on folks, this show ain’t over yet”. Uranus’ movement into the second sign is a signal to change screens in our mass reality tv show and welcome in a new kind of encounter with our inner rebel/teenager/genius/truth teller. Uranus is the kundalini electric, lightning bolt of connection to the divine that wakes us up, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and sometimes even physically. Smell the smoke as lightning sizzles and hits the ground, setting fire to the old and done. There’s an electric buzz as the air vibrates, alive with the shockwaves of awakening. Uranus directs us towards a kind of potential future that exists only in the present moment.
New Moon in Taurus-Wishes, Flower Essences and More!
One of my earliest memories of astrology was reading my sun sign horoscopes in the newspaper with my grandfather. That’s when I learned that we were both born during the season of Virgo and that Virgo’s were persnickety, perfectionistic and made great servants. But I didn’t really see my grandfather that way and while I could see the emerging signs of persnicketyness in myself at an early age, I wasn’t all that excited about the idea of being a servant.
The Times They are A Changing
Dirt loving, flower sniffing, rolling in the mud, licking off the mango juice, savoring the red wine/dark chocolate/truffle/umami flavor...A Taurus revelry commences tomorrow with the Taurus New Moon welcoming in the springtime with full earthy pleasure power. You might want to kneel and kiss the ground to welcome in the time of flowers blooming and bees buzzing, or maybe you’ll want to do your own kind of earth dance, calling up the fire in the earth and letting the star fire showers fall gently down under a night sky. It’s time now in the northern hemisphere where the rains start to ease up and the sun settles in for awhile.
The Moon in your Chart
The times and the planets are indeed a'changing...can you feel it? This week we've had quite a planetary whirlwind with the Sun moving into Taurus (Monday), Pluto turning retrograde (Thursday), Mercury retrograding back into Aries (Thursday) and Mars moving into Gemini (today-Friday). What a whirlwind of changing planetary energy reflecting the times! Luckily we have earthy planets to keep us grounded as the change swirls around us. If things feel stagnant or stuck, it's only because it may be time to catch our footing. In my case literally, as I strained my ankle on Monday from overdoing my exercise routine, giving me a big heads up from the universe that it was time to slow the %(&# down! I'm trying hard to listen to the wisdom of the stars and use my Taurus sloooow time wisely. Tomorrow's plan is to get my hands in some garden dirt...How are you keeping sane and grounded in the midst of upheaval?
How would you like to be living in your dream home right now? By utilizing the qualities of your natal astrological moon, fourth house cusp, and related planets, you can create and envision a home that fulfills your deepest needs and instincts.
In the astrological landscape, the moon and the fourth house in the astrological chart represent the area of life related to our roots and our own personal “tree of life”.

The midnight point of the chart, it is hidden,
