In this video we explore this week’s Gemini New Moon and two powerful configurations in the sky, emphasizing resilient effort through strategic discipline and guided mentorship (Mars-Saturn-Chiron T-Square) and I share a Tantric Meditation to invoke relationship transparency, transformation, and evolution (Juno conjunct Pluto square Venus, and square Jupiter). We conclude with a journey into Astro-Locality’s Love Lines through Venus and Juno.

Many of us have snuck a peak at our Sun signs online and their compatibility with other signs—can those two stubborn but sensual beasts, Taurus and Leo, really endure for the long term? Could that intense Scorpio depth every mesh with that crazed and excited Gemini curiosity?
One of the challenges we find with this kind of study in astrological compatibility is that we are really only exploring the position of the Sun in the sky when you were born. But the Sun is only one of many planets—those heavenly bodies that actually describe different qualities and characteristics pulsing within each of us. Like the Sun itself, our zodiac Sun sign describes what traits we need to exhibit to feel vital, alive, and creative. Yet, most of us would agree that in a relationship, there are more essential factors to harmony, connection, and sustainability in a relationship.
For instance, feeling emotionally understood by our partner may be the most important factor to a happy and peaceful union. Your Sun sign does not describe these fundamental emotional needs. Instead, your Moon sign describes the qualities you require in your life on a daily basis. We live and breathe our Moon sign as our center of security and inner stability. When we live with someone, our Moon sign will dominate our daily rhythms and how we react in most situations. And if you have another planet opposite or square your Moon sign, that planet will act like a character inside of you bringing tension and irritation to your emotions. Thus, the story of your Moon in your birth chart reveals volumes about you as an emotional being and becomes vital information both for understanding and supporting your life partner.
In addition, the planet Venus—also known as Aphrodite—as the goddess of love. She represents what we find attractive in our life because we value it. A Venus in Sagittarius may value higher education and world travel without much responsibility, whereas a Venus in Cancer will value providing for a family, nurturing others, and creating a safe nest for those she cares for.
Even more interesting is that Venus represents a kind of costume a woman wears as her highest, or most preferred, expression of femininity. In other words, Venus represents the version of the Goddess any woman wants to be honored for. This is matched by the planet Mars in men, which symbolizes the the most preferred expression of masculinitiy in a man, qualities he wishes to be acknowledged and respected for. If Venus and Mars are at odds between two partner’s charts, there can be major challenges to what they find important in their relationship, how they wish to invest their time and energy, and how they express their affection and erotic desires.
Even by visiting just a few other planets in your birth chart—the Moon, Venus, and Mars—you can witness how important the study of astrology can be to revealing not only your patterns in your partnerships, but how to achieve a healthy, passionate, and truly intimate relationship.

Eclipse Season begins to boil over this weekend with the masculine throb and pulse of Air and Fire signs everywhere. The Eclipses, always two weeks apart from each other, act as super catalyzing New And Full Moons, causing directional shapeshifts in our relationships, career, creativity, and home environment. Friday the 10th is the Lunar Eclipse at 22 deg. of Leo, sparking this very suggestive sabian symbol: A bareback rider in a circus displays her dangerous skill.
The shadow of this Leo Eclipse looms in the arrogant, egoic, “mad king,” me-first energy. We don’t have to look too far to see how we’ve projected this dark god into our current American “leadership.” (Yes, he’s a Mars in Leo, and Leo Rising). The test now is to let go of our judgements, and invoke our own charismatic leader – if you were in your sexiest, solar brilliance, your most magnetic and innovative creator, serving your community, how would you step into the Full Moon spotlight with this Lunar Eclipse? Don’t wait—do it this weekend.
This commandment also erupts from the “warrior lovers” Mars and Venus, as they conjoin to strip down into naked, wild, raw Aries passion. YUMMM. But if all the world’s a sexy stage, then we must beware the feisty Aries combustion and rage if not given the freedom to follow its animal instincts. Can we follow our inner solopreneurial mission and our deepest desires without succumbing to reactive separation and unnecessary antagonism?
Here’s a free video preview from my course on Love and Sex Archetypes all about the Aries God and Goddess.
Also, amped by messenger Mercury’s circus flight into wild Aquarius the rest of February, the Jupiter in Libra to Sun in Aquarius air trine inspires tribal kin-nection, facilitating expansion of our creative purpose within our communities. This energy is about saying YES to the opportunities unveiling Now: collaborate, teach, grow with the assistance and reflection of those you party, play, and learn with.
Remember the sabian symbol for this Leo Full Moon: A bareback rider in a circus displays her dangerous skill.
Are you ready to risk it all?
We are ready to bask in awe at your daredevil glow
Celebrate your roar.
We are ready to dance in its echo.
How will your career, love, and home environment be affected this year?
How best to prepare?

Friday’s Aquarian New Moon emphasizes being your authentic self, following intuitive flashes, thinking outside the box, and bringing your creative innovation to your community. At the 8th degree of Aquarius, the sabian symbol is “A Flag is seen as turning into an Eagle. This symbol suggests: The only true patriot is free, self-liberated to soar in the unique frequency of the One Divine Energy….
During this New Moon, goddess of love Venus “repairs” herself in a challenging conjunction to Chiron and square to Saturn. This aspect invites deep relational healing. Since Venus is in Pisces, sign of myth and archetype, accessing the love archetypes at the core of your soul can be a key path to building and sustaining mature intimacy (Saturn) and relationships as a path to awakening. As Chiron represents the mentor, the Honoring your Sacred Masculine and Feminine course may be one path of guidance for you to unveil and integrate your unique version of the God and Goddess.
Also in Astrology, Composite Charts, available here, reveal the soul-work a couple has come to do together, how a couple harmonizes and feels secure together, and even how the individuals relate to the relationship.

Within 7 days, the romantic and idyllic Pisces lovers will be replaced by the reactively feisty, agressively fierce, adventurous combustion of Aries. Next week, expect love to steam in the scald of the hot springs….
NUMEROLOGY of 2017 – Number One, Baby
A completely new cycle has emerged after closing a 9 year odyssey. In 2016, certain karmic patterns and stories have needed to be released and resolved on both the collective and personal level. We also learned about the power of service and true humanitarian spirit, even amidst tragedy and divisive politics, our levels of compassion and empathy have grown. Whatever we have shed or completed in the 9 year has made space for the thrust forward into the unprecedented territory of the Universal Year Number 1.
The 1 asks you: If you were functioning at your Superhuman level, who would you be, and what would you be accomplishing?
The 1 harnesses a fiery energy of self-motivated risk-taking and passionate desire to grow. 2017 is not the year to hide or hold back, but rather to fearlessly fly into your daredevil individual expression. As the first number, 1 is endlessly creative and innovative. Thus, 2017 is the year to reinvent yourself through inspired new beginnings. “Know Thyself” will ring as one of the year’s mantras, as each of us will benefit from continued self-study through systems and practices like Astrology, Human Design, Numerology, Yoga, and Meditation.
The 1 can be a ruthlessly ambitious number and often ignore the needs of others. Thus, in relationships, it will be one of our challenges to clarify individual desires and learn how these correspond or not to shared goals, and make our necessary adjustments. We will also experience impatience with relational drama since this will distract from what we are trying to achieve in life.
Additionally, we need to activate whatever projects have been stagnant but which we feel are integral to our future evolution. Simultaneously, we want to acknowledge ALL of our talents and abilities. There are many online platforms now, such as udemy.com or Skillshare.com, for teaching and earning resources in whatever area you have mastered an ability, so it’s time to confidently express the radiance of your being.
Meanwhile, we should maintain the humility to know what skills are lacking, and the thirsty eagerness and dedicated action steps to integrate new tools in our toolbelt to become more of an empowered leader. You might need to embrace more time for isolation in order to cultivate self-development. Frivolous social time or endless hours on facebook or online without a dedicated focus will not serve the 1’s desire to achieve. Let your entrepreneur out and allow fresh ideas to flow. There may even be new inventions, technologies, or trends in 2017 that will dominate much of the next 9 year cycle.
Interestingly, Donald Trump is in a 19/1 Essence in both 2016 and 2017. The Essence number is one of the most powerful influences in Numerology, a cycle revealing important life lessons, areas of potential success and support, and the emotional state in which we perceive our environment. For Donald, the possibility of the 1’s visionary leadership may get “trumped” by stubbornness, impatience, greed, and an obvious desire for personal gain.
The 1 year may be most challenging for Life Path numbers 9, 2, and 6. You can find your Life Path number by adding your birthdate together and then reducing to single digits unless it’s an 11, 22, or 33, Numerology’s master numbers.
As the week of Elections 2016 dawns and possibly the most unprecedented campaign in U.S. history finally ends, more Wikileaks and allegations seeming to unfold constantly. Have you listened to the riveting new interview with Julian Assange, head of Wikileaks, reveal even further shadows of the candidates?
In my new video blog below, I share the astrology of the candidates, painting deeper insights into these figures and the hidden layers of their character, including their most potent current cycles. If you’ve asked WHY we are in this current situation, this video may unveil some enlightening answers.
In addition, my last vlog revealed the Human Design of the USA’s two presidential candidates—their motivations, their emotional natures, their personal agendas, their thought processes, and so much more. Check that post out here!
May the stars light your way hOMe.
Human Design is one of the most powerful tools to gain insight into one’s “genetic” strategy to feel confident in making key life decisions. Design provides profound revelations about the USA’s two presidential candidates—their motivations, their emotional natures, their personal agendas, their thought processes, and so much more. In my new video, you will learn about all the basic Human Design components—Strategy, Type, Inner Authority, and Profile—through a deep analysis of the energetic similarities and differences of two candidates. To quote a political candidate, I hope this will bring “tremendous and big league” insight into the political circus. 😉
During the Sun’s journey through Libra every year at this time, balance and fairness in relationship always become dominant themes in our collective psyche. This theme is especially empowered now by the relational intensity and focus on shared resources, control, and power as goddes of love Venus is in the underworld throes of Scorpio.
While the vlog I recently uploaded about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s divorce is about the astrological symbols behind the end of a marriage, I also wanted to share an important and surprising new finding about what makes relationships successful and sustainable. It all has to do with “intention” behind “attention.”
The Power of Positivity
Of course, we all know that if we share some negative news or find ourselves in some emotional upheaval, we want and need support from our partners at that time. But some researchers have found that it is actually the response to good news that holds more currency for joy and connection in relationships.
According to an essay in Scientific American, researchers have found that couples who answered good news in an active-constructive way, demonstrating interest and positive reinforcement, scored higher on almost every measure of relationship satisfaction. For instance, if I share with my partner a promotion that I receive at work and my partner responds with a negative statement, like “That sounds like a lot more work!” or even with a non-engaging statement, like “That’s great, now what’s for dinner,” this can be extremely damaging to our relationship.
We want an active-constructive response, to feel like our partner “gets” us and cares about not only our news, but our individual growth. Indifference or negativity can send us or them out the door quickly, while celebrating positive news can actually help couples remain together longer, and also tends to correspond with partnership in which fun is emphasized and conflicts are diminished.
Whether a first date or a long-term commitment, think about what good news your partner has shared with you and how you can enhance it and even rephrase it with another positive affirmation. This action represents the luminous pinnacle of the sign Libra and its gift for support and focus on our partner.
I don’t often report on celebrity lives, but I have referenced Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie quite a bit in terms of Locational Astrology, and these iconic figures can teach us much about astrology, relationship dynamics, and especially now the power of Planetary Transits and the “Composite Chart”—the two as one. Hopefully these videos and chart interpretations will enlighten and inspire you.
If you haven’t been following the story, Brad and Angelina—Hollywood’s uber super couple 13 years and with 6 kids—are divorcing after Angelina filed papers a few weeks ago, citing “threats to the health of the family” as her main reason. She has also asked for full custody of their children with only visitation rights for Brad, who many sources cite as having an excessive alcohol problem. This has not been a passive, low-key proceeding with both parties’ celebrity lawyers, and Angelina’s team of three high profile lawyers. Currently, the couples have agreed to both separate and family counseling and Brad will be able to visit kids under the supervision of a therapist.
Here’s the first installment of a three part video series, focused on Brad’s cycles. Sending prayers of peaceful relations for all.
