August begins with a full moon in Aquarius and ends with a full moon in Pisces, which is also the end of the lunar year. The sun travels through Leo until August 23 where it moves into Virgo. Venus went retrograde July 22 in Leo and will travel into Virgo while Mercury and Mars travel in Virgo all month. Mercury will turn retrograde August 23 to September 14 (in Virgo) and Uranus will turn retrograde August 28 - January 27, 2024 (in Taurus).

July is a month of true love, friends, fun, success and wealth. The month begins with the Sun travelling in the sky with Mercury (communication) and Juno (devotion), in the sign of Cancer. Nourishing, loving and devoted communication is the major theme of this transit so expect some heartfelt conversations. Mars (drive), Venus (love), Pallas (wisdom) and Lilith (shadow-self) are also travelling together in the sky, in the sign of Leo making it a month full of love, romance and happiness.

June begins with tension as retrograde Pluto opposes Venus, giving an intensity to relations and passions. Saturn sextiles Mars, which can create a constriction to willpower. It’s time to review the past to prepare for a new phase in life.

May is a pivotal month of the year, and possibly a pivotal month in a lifetime. This month is all about boundaries as Mercury, the planet that rules communication - including our own deeper communications with self- travels retrograde through Taurus until May 14 when it turns direct. 

April begins with the Sun in the sign of Aries and is moving in the sky with Chiron, Jupiter, Vesta and Mercury. The asteroid Chiron is both our wound and our gift of healing. When we heal ourself, we may guide another. Chiron has been travelling through Aries since 2018 and will continue until 2027 and it is a time when every person is doing deep healing work. The Sun travelling in the sky with Chiron definitely illuminates this wound for some, and for some of the more advanced, allows the healers to shine. 

Happy New Year and may you all have a blessed 2023! By the third week of this month, all planets and asteroids will be in direct motion, rare these last few years putting 2023 to a great start of forward motion. By the hermetic law of “as above, so below” it should be mirrored in our daily life.

December begins with the autumn Sun still moving in the sky with Venus and Mercury, travelling through the sign of Sagittarius while retrograde Mars is in Gemini, forming an opposition. This is a strange opposition as Mars, the planet of doing, is retrograde so has an aspect of not-doing and it’s in the bipolar sign of Gemini meaning a propensity to switch! It’s a time with many shifts and surprises occurring quickly, and also a time of karma and love as Saturn conjuncts the asteroid Valentine.

November begins with the Sun, Mercury and Venus moving in tight conjunction through Scorpio opposite the north node conjunct retrograde Uranus in Taurus. Surprises may occur this month. Trust the process as there are forces beyond us that align with our paths. Mars entered its retrograde October 30 and is travelling through Gemini until January 12, 2023.

October is a transformative month with a theme of letting go of sorrow, dissolving into love, conquering the shadow self and allowing for expressions of the divine to come through as we align truth on earth. Many planets end their retrograde this month resulting in forward momentum. Mercury turns direct October 2 in Virgo, Pluto turns direct October 8 at the 26º of Capricorn and Saturn turns direct October 23 at 18º Aquarius.

March is both the end and the beginning of the zodiac cycle. As the Sun moves into Aries, we have the first day of Spring: 03/20, which represents this rebirth.

The Sun travels in the sky with Jupiter and Neptune most of the month bringing loving energy. Jupiter was the planet that ruled the god/the divine until Neptune was discovered. Pisces is also the sign that rules the divine so as previously stated, it’s an incredibly beautiful time on earth.
