• Travel, The North Star and the Sun

    Since it’s the summer now, many of you might be traveling. When we are in a different part of the world, the sky is also different. I was inspired to write this article because of a conversation I had with one of my astrology students. She is taking her family on a holiday to Sweden and Norway. They live in Florida. I’m teaching her about the Ecliptic in our class and now she can get a chance to see the Ecliptic from a new location on the Earth. I gave her homework while she was in these countri…

  • Pluto Return of America

    Pluto is the topic of conversation now, so it’s time for me to write about him. Since Pluto is the slowest planet in our solar system, it’s a very big event when he joins a planet in our chart. Pluto has an orbit of 248 years and is triggering off the chart of the United States now. Let’s get to know Pluto a bit before we see what he’s doing now. Pluto is associated with Scorpio and has an intense style. The keyword phrase for Pluto is “Death and Rebirth.” Pluto transits occur during huge times …

  • Chinese New Year of the Water Tiger

    Welcome to the Chinese New Year! Last year for the Metal Ox, which changes to the Water Tiger for 2022. That’s a new animal as well as a new element. But before I explain the Water Tiger, let’s get to know a little about Chinese Astrology. The Chinese New Year starts on a different day each year and is decided using astrology. It begins at sunset on the second New Moon after the Winter Solstice, in China. Western and Chinese Astrology have similarities but also have differences. Western Astrolog…

  • Saturn Square Uranus . . . It's Not Over Yet!

    Last year stodgy old Saturn did a triple square to the rebel, Uranus. The books say it’s over, but I don’t agree. Yes, the angles were exact last February 17th, June 14th and will occur again on December 24th to wrap up the year. But in October and November 2022 they will square each other again and in a dramatic way. Saturn has an orbit of 30 years and Uranus has an orbit of 84 years, so they don’t do this dance very often. Plus, Saturn could have just done one square and didn’t have to do a re…

  • Astrology of Simone Biles

    I admit it, I was obsessed with watching the Olympics non-stop. Gymnastic, swimming, skateboarding, surfing . . . I loved it at. The best parts for me were the human interest stories and getting to know the competitors a little better. The most shocking of the stories was Simone Biles withdrawing from the gymnastics competition. This happened live and with the entire world watching. Simone did her first vault for the qualifying rounds and seemed to lose herself mid-air and almost landed on her k…

  • The Astrology Comparison of Meghan, Harry and Lili

    Once people have their chart interpreted, the next thing many people do is compare it with their loved ones. How compatible are the charts? If someone’s Mars is joining your Sun, you will feel agitated by their energy. If the person’s Venus is joining your Sun, you will feel loved and supported. Usually there are positive as well as challenging angles between most charts. It is good to know your areas of harmony so you can focus on them. It’s also nice to be warned of your challenges so you can …

  • Aquarius is Action: Greta Thunberg

    Now that both Jupiter and Saturn are in Aquarius, it’s time to take a look at some movers and shakers who are ushering in this new phase or shall we say, the New Age of Aquarius. Uranus is associated with Aquarius. Some keywords that apply to both are equality, the environment, grassroots movement, technology, inventions and the future. When I thought about who embodies the revolutionary Aquarian spirit, Greta Thunberg came to mind. Let’s take a look at her chart and see what drives her to accom…

  • USA and its Pluto Return

    Countries can have an astrology chart, just like people, and it seems like a good time to look at the chart of the United States. We have the rare combination of a pandemic, economic disaster, race riots and a Presidential Election all at the same time. Somehow the US is experiencing a virus so deadly that it hasn’t been seen in a century. The economy as a result is more devastated and with more jobs lost than during the Great Depression and riots not seen since the 1960s. That all feels very Pl…

  • Astrological Preview for 2020

    Where do I start with this year? It’s going to be a real doozy, folks! The Capricorn Party of planets dominates the sky, especially for the beginning of the year, which will likely start with an historic Impeachment trial. At one point, All the planets will be in Capricorn except for Uranus and Neptune! I’ve never seen anything like this before and neither has the world. Print this article to use as a reference for the important events and dates for the upcoming year. Just so you can see what I’…

  • Jupiter Joins the Capricorn Party!

    As if the huge Capricorn Party wasn’t large enough, now the big guy Jupiter is entering this auspicious group of planets. All astrologers are talking about this so I wanted to share it with everyone. We are in historic times now and it can be seen easily with astrology. Even though I’ve written about this before, now that the time that this main grouping is here, it’s important enough to examine again. (Chart at the end of the article). Jupiter enters Capricorn on December 3rd and remains in tha…
