October gives another month of s l o w energy on Earth as many planets continue to travel in retrograde motion. Mercury, the planet that rules communication is also retrograde for most of the month so be extra careful as miscommunication easily occurs during these times. The good news is Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter end their retrograde near the end of the month and November might feel less restrictive.

September has a theme of practicality and organization as the sun travels through Virgo and enters Libra on the Equinox.

The planets and major asteroids that are retrograde at this time are Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, Neptune, Chiron, Pholus, Nessus, and Mercury goes retrograde 09/27. Recall that retrograde results in an internalization, slowing down, returning to, and review of various themes on earth. I suspect we will continue to have a slow time and possibly another (4th) wave of this virus come October.

For most of the month, the Sun, Uranus, the Moon, Black Moon Lilith, Venus, Mercury, and the North Node are all travelling together in the sky in late degrees of Taurus and early degrees of Gemini, and Neptune travels in the sky with Pallas, the asteroid of wisdom.

April marks the month of initiation, with communication from the heart as the major theme. It marks a new solar cycle and a refreshing time of growth and momentum. Aries is the first energy of the Zodiac and paralleled to the “big boom” of this Universe.

The sun moves in the sky with Venus and Mercury, creating a theme of love on Earth with communication being paramount. Now is a good time to tell people how much you love them. 

Welcome to the best month of the year. March marks an incredibly peaceful time with destiny as the theme. Mars merges in the sky with the north node, in Gemini, while the rest of the planets move through Aquarius and Pisces.

All planets are direct this month, continuing to create momentum on earth. With so many planets in Aquarius and Pisces there is a palpable loving and mystical energy especially with the new moon in Pisces 03/13. The Libra full moon 03/28 has a bitter sweetness as the sun conjuncts Venus and Chiron to oppose the moon ie: the wound surfaces.

February Planetary Overview

May we all welcome a blessed 2021 with a moment of intention or a good thought for the well-being of the whole for this upcoming year.

Communication of the higher spheres rules this month: spirituality, philosophy, culture and learning. It is a jovial, optimistic and abundant time beginning the day after a total lunar eclipse with all planets (except Uranus) direct in the sky. “The Big 3” (Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter) are still travelling in the late degrees of Capricorn.
 

November is marked with intensity and momentum as the sun moves through the sign of Scorpio and into Sagittarius. The energy of Scorpio is about death, rebirth, regeneration and transformation. Scorpio is a fixed water sign that rules the occult, sexuality, the afterlife, passion and intuition that plunges deep into the undercurrent of reality.

October is a special month beginning with a full moon and ending with a full moon, with the new moon right in the middle (10/16). Restrained energy continues to rule on Earth and this will not change anytime soon. It can feel frustrating and tension is palpable in the chart for October. There is a great balance occurring and this manifests in the macro and the micro.
