The Moon enters Gemini on the 2nd and reaches fullness on Sunday, Dec. 3rd. This won’t be the happiest of Full Moons, but we can try and make the most of it anyway. Continue reading
Sorry I’ve been away for a while. I’ve had too many things to distract me, including a broken foot. I’m on the mend, though, and ready to get back to some good ol’ Moon Talk plus other stuff. And please bear with me while I redesign my website. It’s a mess at the moment, but changes are underway.
While on the mend, I’ve been working on a calendar for 2018 that has all kinds of goodies to help guide us through the cosmic mishmash of planets, moon signs and phases, tarot, numerology, flowers, crystals and anything else that seems appropriate or fun. Everything on this printable planner page is explained in this post. Continue reading
There was a beautiful quote by Billy, age 4, (who may or may not have been real) that made its way around the internet about 10 or more years ago:
“When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.”
I published my first post on Auntie Moon on February 28, 2009. I knew I wanted to write about living daily with the Moon and the extraordinary lunar influence on everything. I didn’t know where to start, so I decided to publish a youtube video of one of my favorite songs ever ~ Cat Steven’s Moonshadow.
So much has happened since publishing that post. This morning, I got the news that this blog has been viewed a million times. It may not be a big deal for some, but it’s a major milestone for me.
I would never have published that first post had it not been for the encouragement I received from my dear friend and mentor, Donna Cunningham, aka Moon Maven. Donna passed from this life in July and is most assuredly working on her next already. I wish I could share this news with her. (It would probably have spared you from having to hear about it.)
To mark the milestone, I want to share that Moonshadow video with you again today and, in memoriam, to give a public thank you to one of the most amazing and generous women I’ve ever known.
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’.”
Jupiter in Libra is opposing Uranus in Aries today. Exact. I was taken by the phrases “spotting the phony” and “whole hog” in my DayWatch calendar. Continue reading
Here are some picks for good days during Libra season.
Having read this post to proof it, I find that I really strayed here and there. I decided to leave it as is. Everyone needs to wander once in a while.
Here we are almost through Virgo season and we’re facing a New Moon. Feels weird to me having a New Moon at the end of the sign.
But we don’t get to pick. That big, ol’ celestial clock is not going to be reset by anyone or anything. The Virgo New Moon arrives on September 19th or 20th, depending on your time zone. That makes it right around the “witching hour,” midnight ~ a dark night for sure. Here’s hoping your New Moon slides through clear skies against a curtain of sparkling stars. Continue reading
Mercury is dancing around the Leo/Virgo cusp as he continues his retrograde period. He dips briefly into Leo on August 31st, turns direct on September 5 at 28 Leo, and re-enters Virgo on September 9th.
♍️ The Sun passing through Virgo doesn’t mean you have to morph into a slave or a spend an entire month clearing out your sock drawer.
We have to get past Virgo being all about work, work, work. You might even have some Virgo fun. ♍️ Continue reading
Did you ever wish you had a do-over? Maybe you went through something and, when it was all over and you thought of things you could have done, you said to yourself, “I wish I’d… ”
Well, this New Moon you get to put those could’ve should’ve would’ves to work because this New Moon is a Wishing Moon. Continue reading
The Pisces Moon eases into a beautiful trine with Venus in Cancer during the afternoon of the 9th.
Love is all around.💖
It is a lunar eclipse that precedes the solar eclipse of August 21st this year.
