To be happy… we need to take some time each day to sit down, look into ourselves, and identify the kind of energy that’s motivating us and where it is pushing us.
Rumblings and stirrings.
world out of balance.
Snagged by outworn habits.
When the comfort zone is not so cozy,
open your eyes
ripe with new insight
to the reality of life.
Collective karmic catharsis.
Ancestral trauma resurfaces
from the depths.
and the crimes of inhumanity.
within the old power paradigm.
and reach for a new and fluid emotional security.
More than Mercury Retrograde: Capricorn Crescendo
We’re in the Capricorn Crescendo as Saturn and Pluto travel through Capricorn and grow closer and closer until their conjunction in January 2020. Now, Pluto and the Lunar South Node approach and the rumblings and stirrings of karmic catharsis are growing stronger. Astrologers see different ways to note the timing of the exact conjunction of Pluto and the South Node; the alignments occur on March 28 and April 4. We are facing the inevitable. Our task is to deal with what has been stuffed, suppressed or buried, what we haven’t been able or willing to face.
The collective element is immense: our shared history, what traditions and ways of “doing business” are mainstream acceptable yet in reality shameful and harmful – involving slavery, abuse and destruction. The commodification of everything. Shameful waste. The hoarding of wealth. Now is the time to transform the Capricorn archetype. May we be stewards of the earth and respectful of all life and the generations ahead. May we take the mantle of power and responsibility with sober, reverent maturity.
As individuals, each one of us has our unique challenges and opportunities during this Capricorn Crescendo. Astrology is a key. Gain valuable, personal insight about this powerful time so that you can navigate change. I can help you. Contact me for a consultation.
Aries Equinox March 20, 2019 2:58 pm PDT
Libra Full Moon March 20, 2019 6:42 pm PDT
Equinox Portal Flipside
Six months ago, we passed through the Fall Equinox portal with a Full Moon in Aries. This Spring Equinox brings us a Full Moon in Libra.
Both the Equinox and the Full Moon activate the Aries-Libra axis. Themes of identity, independence and self in polarity with awareness of significant others, diplomacy and cooperation. It’s no wonder that relationships are on our minds and in our hearts.
The Libra Full Moon stands out as a focal point in the planetary design. We need connection. We need one another. Chiron is conjunct the Sun and opposite the Moon, bringing up old stories and hurts. We are ripe for healing the past and stepping through the Equinox portal with wisdom and healing.
Mercury Retrograde in Pisces until March 28
Mercury stations direct while less than 1° from Neptune (Pisces’ ruler) and the degree of the New Moon on March 6. Pick up the threads you were weaving, water the seeds you planted, retrieve what was left behind, soften, forgive, forget, remember, imagine, dream, take a nap. Yes, this date coincides with one of the Pluto South Node Conjunctions. Here is our opportunity to release the old story and empower dreams! Re-imagine authority with compassionate maturity. Respect intuition.
“Rather than trying to control what can never be controlled, we can find a sense of security in being able to meet what is actually happening. This is allowing for the mystery of things: not judging but rather cultivating a balance of mind that can receive what is happening, whatever it is. This acceptance is the source of our safety and confidence.
When we feel unhappiness or pain, it is not a sign that things have gone terribly wrong or that we have done something wrong by not being able to control the circumstances. Pain and pleasure are constantly coming and going, and yet we can be happy. When we allow for the mystery , sometimes we can discover that right in the heart of a very difficult time, right in the midst of a painful situation, there is freedom. In those moments when we realize how much we cannot control, we can learn to let go.
As we begin to understand this, we move from a mode of struggling to control what comes into our lives into a mode of simply wishing to truly connect with what is. This is a radical shift in worldview.” Sharon Salzberg, Lovingkindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness

Where/How am in a rut?
How am I standing in my own way?
What are my ingrained habits showing me right now?
What is arising from the past to be integrated?
