• Keywords for the Signs of the Zodiac

    Astrology can be complicated and I want to make it as easy as possible for everyone. One way to make it more accessible is to make it concise, which is where the keywords come in. Each keyword can only belong to one sign. Beginnings belong to Aries and endings belong to Pisces. Perfectionism is part of Virgo while the big picture goes to Sagittarius. Each sign has a part to play and together, they become an entire system. So here are some keywords for each of the signs. Most of you know these al…

    The Sun enters the sign of Aries on March 20th at 3:00 p.m., Mountain Time. Aries is a fire sign and is associated with Mars, the warrior.

This dynamic sign talks fast, drives fast and obviously, doesn’t have a lot of patience with anything. Yes, coffee is the drug of choice for Aries. How perfect it is that the beginning of the astrological year is Aries as well as the Spring E…

  • Uranus Enters Taurus = Change

    Welcome to a new phase in humanity! The rebel Uranus will enter the sign of stable Taurus on March 6, 2019 and won’t leave until April 27, 2026.

  • Preview of 2019 or Capricorn, Capricorn, Capricorn

    We have the New Year of 2019 upon us and this is a good time to take an astrological peak at what’s coming up for us all. The main astrological trend now is an important grouping of planets in Capricorn that will be there into 2020. At the peak of this Capricorn era, there will be five planets in that sign. That’s fully half of the Solar System in one place. No, that doesn’t happen often, but it does occur. So why is this one so important? It is made up of the slowest planets and therefore is ra…

  • Venus Found Her Voice

    The infamous Venus Retrograde in Scorpio has just ended and it seems she found her voice. In my last article, called “Venus Retrograde Gone Wild”, there was a line explaining that this alignment was like “A scorned woman seeking revenge”. When I wrote that line, it just jumped out of me without thinking about it. At the time it seems pretty extreme, but I can see now that it was precisely accurate. The world has change since that recent Venus Retrograde and I don’t think it will ever be the same…

  • My New AstroMap

    When you move or travel somewhere other than your birth place, your Astro Map changes too. Ok, that’s my nickname for Astro*Carto*Graphy, which is quite a mouthful. The more I get to know my chart as it relates to travel, the more amazed I am. This last year was my biggest year of travel in a long time. I went to India to receive my award in New Delhi. Then I spent the summer in Barcelona, Spain. Being in two new places gave me a good chance to see how different I felt in each location. First I …

  • Change in Latitude = Change in Attitude

    Barcelona was my home for the summer and I knew the long trip would be life changing. The rebel planet, Uranus, is playing with my chart a lot now, which always creates something new. It can be a new home, a new style and a new haircut. But it also goes much deeper to bring a new awareness of who we are inside and how we connect with the world. I was expecting a new lifestyle, new friends and new clothes, but I wasn’t expecting a new relationship with the sky. As many people know, I have a big b…

  • The Chinese New Year 2018 Earth Dog

    The Chinese New Year starts at a different date each year. The beginning is at sunset on the second New Moon after the Winter Solstice. All this is based on when it happens in China. Like Western Astrology, the Chinese Zodiac has 12 signs, or animals. This year the animal is the stable Earth Dog. This year will be quite a contrast to the volatile Fire Rooster of 2017 that is just ending. For a reminder about the out-of-control Rooster, here is an abbreviated excerpt from my last year’s Preview f…
