During the Scorpio Full Moon, we experience the juxtaposition of the practical (Taurus, the sign of the Sun) and the emotional (Scorpio, the sign of the Moon). The interplay between these two signs helps us to forge an awareness that what we see—what has form—is reliant upon that which is unseen but deeply felt.Read More
As tempting as it may be, it’s not a week for cutting corners, notably when it comes to our approaches to relationships, artistic enterprises, or financial matters. We could feel like we just don’t want to do the work, and we want a sooner-than-later outcome. Yet, there may be too high a price to pay—whether in the moment with feelings of worry or guilt, or down the road with all the work we need to do to untangle a prematurely interwoven situation—should we sidestep important processes.Read More
Trudging through an endless list of things to do? Welcome to the Saturn Station.
In astrology, Saturn governs limits and restrictions, and the rules that rule our consensus reality. Saturn reminds us that there is finitude: of time, of resources, and of life. It also encourages us to remember that we can architect things that have long lasting value, if we go slow, don’t cut corners, and focus on the essentiality of integrity.
When the New Moon occurs in Taurus we have a great opportunity to look within and see what it is that brings us comfort and a greater sense of security. Taking the time to examine what activities and earthly delights yield pleasure can help you discover a sense of rootedness that can serve you well in the coming year.Read More

I didn’t end up writing this weekly update until Monday in the late afternoon. Usually I do it before this point, on Sunday or first thing Monday morning.
My delay was partly practical (an early morning appointment and a writing project that’s captivated my focus and a ton of my time). And it was partly instinctual (before this point, whenever I would think of writing it, I felt called to wait longer).
And now, as opposed to if I wrote it at the usual moment, I can make space to reflect on something that has happened in its midst, between then and now: the Notre-Dame Cathedral fire.Read More
