Well, the Big Boy is getting ready to set up shop in Scorpio. He moves in on October 10, 2017 for a year-long stay. Continue reading
Once in a while we get a little gift from the zodiac or planets. We’re getting one this weekend from Venus. Continue reading
Aries is no-holds barred, rev your engines, and do or die. It’s jump in both feet, preferably in red shoes, or get out of the way.
It’s fast and it’s furious and there’s no time to stand around gawking.
As Jim Carrey’s character in The Mask would say, this Full Moon is “ssssssmokin’.”
Are you feeling any effects from Capricorn’s Full Buck Moon? Capricorn is reputed to be a somber sign, even though it’s graced with a very dry wit and a sense of humor that can be infectious. It is ruled by crotchety Saturn, though, and he has a knack for bringing on a case of the blues from time to time.
If the blues (or grief) has you in its grips under this Capricorn Moon, I have two essential oil remedies for you to try.
Whenever I start feeling blue, I get up and get busy.
~ My Capricorn Mom’s advice
on handling the blues
The Moon travels through four signs this week, ending with with a Full Buck Moon on July 8th or 9th, depending on where you live. For the Eastern Time Zone and points east, the Full Moon is on the 9th (12:07am EDT). That’s only a few minutes after midnight for east coasters, but well into the day if you happen to live on the other side of the Atlantic ocean.
For everyone else in the States, the Full Buck Moon is on the evening of the 8th, 9:07pm (PDT). Continue reading
Life is always changing, isn’t it? One minute everything is hunky-dory and the next minute something happens and life gets much harder. It’s amazing how just one change can affect everything else in major ways. That was my weekend.
And it’s why I want to focus on the good days this week. I call them Live, Laugh, Love days.
Moon in Capricorn June 10, 7:37am – June 12, 7:46pm (EDT).
The Capricorn Moon gets a rough start on the 10th with an opposition to Mars in Cancer. It may benefit us to let someone else be the boss for a few hours so we can take advantage of the simultaneous trine to Venus in Taurus. Are you a lover or a fighter?
On Sunday, the 11th, it’s emotional power plays with Jupiter to start the day. By midday and into the evening, the Moon finds some comfort with her companions Neptune and Pluto, both in easy aspect. Inspiration and confident power may erase the early morning emotional baggage.
Her last aspect is a square to Uranus before entering Aquarius on the 12th. A jarring afternoon may be on the menu.

Moon in Sagittarius, June 7, 7:01pm – June 10, 7:37am EDT. Full Moon at 9:11am, June 9th.
I think I need to start this post by explaining the pic I chose for Sagittarius. Sagittarius is most often depicted as the truth-seeking philosopher priest of the zodiac, and he is. He definitely is. But he’s also a comic and has a knack for peppering his stories with tall tales, exaggeration, and humor. If you’ve ever watched the movie, Big Fish, you’ve watched a magnificent example of Sagittarius storytelling in action. (Watch the trailer at the bottom of the post.)
Venus moves into lusty Taurus for a month-long stay, June 6 – July 4, 2017. This is not the Venus we associate with love and marriage. This is not Venus, the love goddess. This is Venus, the sex goddess. She never confuses which she is when. This is the Venus that is carnal, sensual, comfort-securing, and with a taste for the expensive.
This is also the Venus that will provide the necessary luxuries to all those she loves dearly, to the best that she is able, and will ensure a healthy inheritance for her children. She is hard working because she understands the value of a dollar, and has no doubts as to which side her bread is buttered on.
Moon in Scorpio June 5, 6:47am – June 7, 7:01pm (EDT).
The Scorpio Moon is very private, but a trine to Mars in Cancer in the early morning of June 5th will help her engage. Mars is one of Scorpio’s rulers, so as Moon/Mars aspects go…a trine here is nice. There’s a boost of energy that might have you interested in engaging in family activities or doing things around the house. If you’re into genealogy, this day was made for digging through past records and coming up with some interesting tidbits about the family history. Or, you could go deep into a research project of any kind if family heritage isn’t your thing.
Home, family, and all things domestic run on full throttle for the next six weeks. Take your time in the kitchen to avoid cuts, scrapes, and bruises. Home improvement projects can get a boost of energy.
The house(s) in your chart with Cancer on the cusp are the ones where you’ll find increased activity. Watch your temper regarding those issues and pace yourself to avoid burnout.
The Libra Moon starts her journey with blessings from Jupiter and the Sun. On the 4th, she encounters some difficult squares with Pluto and Neptune before regaining her balance with a sextile to Saturn and then wobbling a bit more with squares to Uranus and Venus. No one said that keeping everything balanced was easy. What’s great is knowing we have a little help from the stars along the way.
June 2nd, 8:05pm – June 5, 6:47am (EDT).
