Since Aries and the New Moon both symbolize the ushering in of beginnings, this lunar event may have us feeling pulled towards initiating new things. For example, if you’re looking to kick off a diet or amp up your exercise regimen, the exuberance of palpable energy that the Aries New Moon affords may be a great motivator. Also, if you’ve wanted to tackle a problem but found yourself lacking in the moxie department, the Aries New Moon may give you an infusion of courage and daring that can help you persevere.Read More
I'm excited to share this with you...
I've teamed up with artist Melissa McClain, the creator of Coloring Out Loud, to create a series of workshops that combine astrological and mindful coloring. We're calling it Coloring the Kairos. (Kairos is the ancient Greek word that reflects the opportunity that different moments of time yield, and astrology is a premier language for accessing the kairos.)Read More
The Jupiter/Uranus Opposition electrifies the zeitgeist this year, keeping us on our toes as we deal with surprises, unexpected turns, and out-of-the-blue insights and events. It also invites us to innovative and change up old patterns, doing things that may seem out of character, as we expand and reconfigure our approach to life.Read More
The Virgo Full Moon calls on us to acknowledge the literal and the figurative, the concrete and the diffuse. It's a time to recognize both the differences and the similarities that exist in a system. And while we may be drawn to classify and criticize, remembering that everything is connected—even if we can’t immediately perceive it—can yield a greater acceptance of self and others.

I love planetary retrograde cycles.
I feel that retrograde periods are times for reflection and heightened inner awareness.
They give us a time to pause, to slow down. The flow seems different; it feels like we are encouraged to orient from a more internal place when a planet—notably a personal planet like Mercury, Venus, or Mars—is in retrograde motion. Instead of being exceptionally active in doing, we may find ourselves drawn more towards a greater space of allowing.Read More

Starting next month, I'll be writing a new horoscope column for a fabulous new online women's magazine. And while I can't give you the full details just yet, know that this column will give me a canvas to share with you monthly insights in a way that I've yet to do. The column will give you an overview of the month at the beginning of the month as well as offer wellness perspectives and strategies for each astrological sign. I'm super excited about this new collaboration and ability to share insights with you.
And while it will begin next month (and I promise to let you know the 411 when it gets closer), I thought to give you a taste of what this column will look like by sharing a stellar peek into March.Read More
Today’s New Moon is also a Solar Eclipse. Even if we can’t see an Eclipse in the sky where we live, these celestial events are renowned for being very powerful in the way in which they can impact our lives. Oftentimes, life-changing events or reflections occur around the time of an Eclipse.Read More
