Full Moon in Libra – a Dynamic Balance

Full Moon in Libra lights up the sky on April 11th (exact at 2:08 am in NYC, 9:08 am in Estonia).  Libra’s symbol is the scales – balance, a rather tricky and often misunderstood concept.  Feeling into the energy of this Moon, it occurred to me that true balance is far from the static, blissfully calm and satiated state often aspired to but seldom, if ever, achieved.  In our ever-evolving universe, balance is the ability to ride the topsy-turvy waves of change with flexibility, responsiveness and intense awareness – always moving, always adjusting from one side of the scales to the other.  This Moon shines a bright spotlight on our balancing ability, amplifying thoughts and emotions (Jupiter, the planet of expansion right next to this Moon magnifies everything!) to show where we’ve swung too far, pointing the way to a graceful counter-move that can save us from a fumbling tumble:)

I have just returned from my first-ever 6-day juice cleanse retreat, where a small group of us submitted to a rather rigorous routine in order to re-balance our liver and digestive systems.  As days went by, feeling hungrier and hungrier, it occurred to me that this feels far from my blissfully (ignorant:) notion of what a health-retreat in the luscious Mexican jungle should be like.   My body was led to a temporary state of quite serious imbalance in order to bring about a refreshing restart, hopefully leading to a greater, more sustainable equilibrium.  Trusting the guidance of our very caring and knowledgeable resident healer and staff, I wasn’t worried.  Something deep in my somewhat grumbling gut told me this is just the right swing far out to the edge in order to bring me back towards the center.  Along the way,  I received a very lovely Libran bonus – the silly sense of humor and sweet support of my husband who (quite reluctantly:) stuck it out the whole retreat with me, and the beginnings of a beautiful friendship with a couple from Mexico City who were also doing the cleanse with us.  We all agreed how much easier (and more fun:) it was to get through it together.

The planetary patterns surrounding this Libra Moon – conjunction with Jupiter (expansion and amplification), opposition with Uranus (sudden rapid change) and square with Pluto (potential for deep transformation) are pretty darn intense.  The pendulum swings can feel quite wild and wanton.  Our saving grace is to remain flexible and awake, trusting the deeper, perhaps presently unfathomable purpose of this dynamic tightrope act.  Venus, the ruler of this Moon is on a retrograde journey through compassionate Pisces, about to embrace Chiron, the ancient archetype of the wounded healer – indeed, there is a silver lining, a beautiful healing potential.   Heart-to-heart connection with yourself and those around you is the glimmering moonlit path.

FULL MOON MAGICK to play with: stand on one leg with your eyes closed…observe what happens, how your body adjusts, twists and wobbles to keep the balance.  Switch legs and repeat.  Is it easier on one side or the other?  And what does your intuition say about that difference…what can you adjust in your life to feel more flexible and balanced?  Now, grab a friend and try the same trick again, this time standing side-by-side, holding hands.  Is it easier together?  (hopefully, at least, more FUN:) Can you offer support and receive the steadying hand of your buddy…in this game…and in life? 

Enjoy the wild swings and even the occasional tumbles of this Libra Moon!  And share how these topsy-turvy times are treating you!  XOXO

FEBRUARY Scopes – Wake UP! crows the Rooster:)

Happy Year of the Rooster!

Since Mercury was still retrograde at the start of 2017, the Lunar New Year that kicked off with the Jan 28th Aquarian New Moon feels to me much more like the real fresh start, a palpable energetic shift ushering in a wild set of waves.  In keeping with the Chinese Zodiac theme, I was planning to pop in the famous “Chinese curse” – “May you live in interesting times” – highly appropriate in sentiment, but, as it turns out, also rather apropos in other ways in this “alternative facts” era – turns out this phrase has no known origin in Chinese language or culture and is actually made up by an Englishman…go figure!;)

Meditating on the messages of this fiery red rooster year in the sleepy Mexican village that is my winter home, it finally hit me: what do roosters do for us?  They WAKE US UP, loudly, often at really annoying hours for a night-owl like me.  And, looking around at the wider world, many of us feel like we’ve been shaken rather rudely out of our solipsistic slumbers…grrr… But, there’s no time to mourn the shredded blanket of illusion.  Mars, the planet of action and motivation entered its home terrain, the fiery sign of Aries on Jan 28th, just as the New Moon ushered in the rooster’s rule.  Sleep is simply not an option, at least not till March 10th when Mars takes a breather in much more mellow Taurus.

This Martian mojo can move mountains, helping us create massive change in a matter of moments.  It’s high-octane fuel that should come with a warming label: “handle with CONSCIOUS CARE”.  We’re all in for a crash-course in personal pyrotechnics this month.  On a practical level, when you feel like you’re just about to “blow your top”, take a deep breath and go for a run instead…or any sport that helps you release the tension…perfect time to lose those stubborn holiday pounds, instead of losing your temper:)

Roosters are also known to “strut their stuff”, parading proudly in their finest feathers.  2017 calls on all of us to be more bold and public, to crow out courageously and risk being SEEN in our full glory.  This takes a ton of “cojones” (Spanish for balls;)  But, it doesn’t mean we got to be cocky in that annoying macho manner (though, yeah, we’ll see more of that this year than most).  Revealing our authentic passion, putting our heart on the line requires courage of a different, deeper kind – the guts to be vulnerable and real, to risk seeming ridiculous or “way out there”.  The root of “courage” is “coeur”, HEART in Latin.

Rooroosters-1801620_1920sters walk with their big bold heart front and center.  We can borrow a bit of their instinctive confidence and add our voice to the wake-up choir!   Sure, it may not sound pretty, this cacophony of cries, but out of Chaos new creation comes.

PS- personal “2017 Year Ahead” readings are also available for potent precision navigation! Contact me at katrinhaiba@gmail.com to schedule a private “cosmic surf” session

Now, let’s see what area of life the Fire Rooster shakes awake for each sign:



The focus of these Scopes is how to best ride the cosmic energy: how to catch the good waves and use the challenging ones as opportunities to transform & learn.
As I saw on the wall of a surfshop: “You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf!” 🙂

JUNE 2016 Cosmic Wave SCOPES

Dear ARIES, after the meandering pace of May, you’re probably more than ready to spring into action:) Hope you took some time to simply chill and BE, to clear your mind of needless chatter and tune into the practical wisdom of your body the past month. Seeds planted in these quiet moments are now bursting into bloom – with the planetary party gathering in curious Gemini, your brain is buzzing like a beehive again and your social schedule is filling up fast.  The New Moon on June 4th invites you to explore the wondrous world of words with clear and conscious intent. Venus, the Lady of Love and Luck graces this Moon with extra powers of attraction – you’re much more aware of your desires and not afraid to ask for their fulfillment. It’s time to wave the modern-day magic wand – a pen –to craft your own potent incantation, spell or a prayer! The “big planets” – Saturn, Jupiter and Neptune get involved in this game of creation, amping up your ability to conjure up momentous change. An air of excitement as well as instability permeates the moment – you’re asked to be courageous and cautious, flexible yet responsible, with your feet on the ground and head in the clouds. If you’re feeling a bit bewildered by it all, remember last month’s lesson – take a deep breath and touch base with your gut – your body knows the way to your truest desires.

The June 20th Full Moon is like a graduation – a rich harvest of wisdom from months of intense inner and outer work. It illuminates the bigger picture, revealing the grander pattern behind the twists and turns. You’re no longer a student – the skills you have mastered are ready to use, whether you FEEL ready or not:) A potent professional opportunity is in the making as Jupiter, the planet of abundance shakes hands with Pluto, the cosmic powerbroker on June 26th. A possibility to put your personal mastery into public service may present itself, urging you to BE the change you wish to see in the world. Mars, your own cosmic patron turns direct on June 29th, unleashing your passion. As the warrior planet flexes his mighty muscle, it’s up to you to use this mojo with conscious intent. The mind is mightier than the sword this month, dear impetuous Aries!

Dear TAURUS, Mercury, the divine messenger, offered you a rather original Birthday present last month – a magic mirror in which to see yourself as you truly BE yourself, inviting you to let the layers of projections (who and how you should be) drop like old outfits off your beautiful being. More than most years, this Birthday Season gave you a chance to be reborn in your own primordial perfection.  The process might have felt like a purge, a gradual cleanse of both body and mind – not always easy, but, boy do you feel lighter when you’re done! Now you’re ready to put this brand new Self to practical use, and the New Moon of June 4th opens up plenty of opportunities to do so. Venus, your own gorgeous cosmic patron graces this Moon with extra powers of attraction – you’re much more aware of your desires and not afraid to ask for their fulfillment. The stars align to increase your income streams if you’re willing to work the magic of words, gathering your best peeps to chat and share ideas. Cooperation and flexibility are keys to riding this jumpy and joyous wave, dear stubborn Bull! Look at the bees buzzing in the blooms – they’re creating a sweet symphony together, each happily performing their part.   You can gather plenty of golden nectar if you BE a bit more like the bees this month:)

The Full Moon of June 20th offers a chance to put a “big picture” financial matter to rest. Wisdom and careful consideration is needed – accepting other people’s positions as they are, refraining from any bullying or power plays. Don’t worry, you can afford to be generous! With the multitude of seeds you’ve set free in the New Moon brainstorms, new money trees are starting to sprout:) Don’t cling to any arrangements that have outlived their day. Yes, flexibility may not come so naturally, but this year’s Mercurial Birthday makeover made sure you’re not the same old Bull:) Enjoy exercising your freshly upgraded mental mojo this month and watch in wonder at the change you’re capable of creating!

Dear GEMINI , Happy Birthday! With Mercury, your quick-witted cosmic patron scooting forwards again, you’re out of the slow lane at last. Winds of change whisk you up, carrying you through the gateway of the June 4th New Moon – your cosmic Birthday present and emotional reboot. Venus, the Lady of Love and Luck graces this Moon with extra powers of attraction – you’re much more aware of your desires and not afraid to ask for their fulfillment. It’s time to wave the modern-day magic wand – a pen – to craft your own potent incantation, spell or prayer! The “big planets” – Saturn, Jupiter and Neptune get involved in this game of creation, amping up your ability to conjure up momentous change. An air of excitement and instability permeates the month – you’re asked to be courageous and cautious, flexible yet responsible, with your feet on the ground and head in the clouds. Every area of your life is ready to be restructured, following your deepest desires. Luckily, with your innate ability to perform brilliant feats of mental magic, you’re able to juggle it all, smiling to receive our incredulous applause:)

Full Moon on June 20th highlights the partnership sector of your chart. You’ve learned and grown a lot in this area in the past 6 months. Now it’s time to step into a more mature level of mastery. Decisions need to be made, postponing a resolution is no longer a wise path. Yes, you love to keep your options open, but flexing too much can let others bend you to their will. This Moon brings clarity to both personal and business collaborations, allowing you to choose a more certain course. A potent business opportunity is in the making as Jupiter, the planet of abundance shakes hands with Pluto, the cosmic powerbroker on June 26th – a real estate deal can find the proper backing, or you may discover a better way to manage your available assets.   Time to put that Birthday mojo to practical use, dear magician of the mind!

Dear CANCER, the weeks before your Birthday call you deep into your interior castle to explore the way you weave your world with thoughts and words. With lovely Venus as your guide, you can feel comfortable enough to dive into this dreamy realm, trusting there’s treasure to be found. Of course, any mythical quest has its dangers and dragons – you have to cut through the cobwebs of bygone patterns of belief and avoid getting sucked into the mire of melancholy memories. The first days of the month may indeed find you sorting thru some “stuff”, as the Moon wanes into darkness. Hints of where the treasure may lie arrive after the June 4th New Moon, as Venus crosses the path of the Sun. A long-forgotten longing awakens in your heart, fueled by fresh hope. As the crescent Moon appears in the sky, your desire to create a life of beauty starts to crack its cozy cocoon, seeking visible expression. Pick up a promising creative project that’s been gathering dust, or start fresh with a new idea.   As Anaïs Nin so aptly wrote: “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

Venus emerges from the underworld on June 17th to prepare for your Birthday party. The Sun follows on June 20th, ushering in the Summer Solstice and the start of the season to celebrate YOU. Full Moon glows in the sky that night, making the moment even more magical. A cycle is ending, a new one beginning… take a breath at the threshold, and off you go! A potent positive wave is gathering strength in your closest relationships – generous caring communication can work wonders around June 25-27th. The more you dare to express your highest ideals and deepest desires, the stronger grows your common ground. With Venus in your sign, you can inspire your loved ones to see a more beautiful set of possibilities, inside and out. Mercury moves into your sign on June 29th, tuning the whole world to your intuitive wavelength – it will be easier to weave a new way with the magic of words. Make the most of your special season, dear cosmically creative Cancer!

Dear LEO, with Mercury, the messenger planet purposefully plowing ahead again, any setbacks or delays in your worldly work are ready to unwind. Hopefully you managed to make the most of this downtime, taking a step back from the fray to map out your grander goals and strategies. Now it’s time to share these insights with your potent posse – as the planetary party gathers in chatty Gemini, communication is the name of the game. With Venus catching up to the Sun, you can mix business with pleasure as your social life speeds up.   New Moon on June 4th brings a fresh flurry of invites. There’s so much going on, it may be hard to decide which gathering to grace with your sunny presence:) Use your inner compass as a guide, pointing the needle toward jubilant JOY. What lights you up the most is also best for business – sharing your enthusiasm and excitement, you’ll attract just the right kind of quirky co-creators and colorful characters to advance your plot. Enjoy being the social butterfly this month – your flight is far from frivolous, dear lovable Leo!

Full Moon on June 20th brings clarity and closure to a set of creative endeavors. If you’ve spent the past month or two digging thru your files, reworking past projects and rehashing old ideas, you’ll know by the end of this month if you’re finally “done”:)  If the result looks like a failure, don’t punish yourself by trying to salvage it out of sheer stubbornness. Let it go, burn the tattered pages on the Solstice fire! You’ll be free to start anew, to fall in love again and again. Speaking of matters of the heart, this midsummer Moon can cast a clear beam on your romantic adventures as well, helping you separate petty players from real knights in shining armor. Ripping off the rose-colored glasses can reveal a not-so-pretty picture (like, geez, “what was I thinking?”;) Again, don’t beat yourself up, dear! Giving yourself the royal pardon helps you move on to merrier meadows!   There are plenty of birds and bees buzzing around, you won’t be bored this summer for sure;)

Dear VIRGO, with Mercury purposefully plowing ahead again and Venus attracting attention at the top of your chart, your career is heating up. Insights and ideas from last month’s meditative meanders are ready for the test of Earthly application. An air of excitement as well as instability permeates the month – you’re asked to be courageous and cautious, flexible yet responsible, with your feet on the ground and head in the clouds. New Moon on June 4th brings a fresh flurry of opportunities to contribute your greatest in the game of creation. Keep your eyes and ears open – a juicy position can open up at a moment’s notice, requiring you to jump on a cascading wave of change.   Venus, the Lady of Love and Luck graces this Moon with extra powers of attraction, urging you to express your true desires.  Use the power of words; wave the modern-day magic wand – a pen –to craft your own potent incantation, spell or a prayer! Remember, you have Jupiter in your posse – don’t settle for the safety of the same old job if it no longer sparks your heart.

Summer Solstice arrives on a bright Full Moon on June 20th, shedding light on your Earthy foundation. This turning of the seasons can bring a sense of clarity and closure – perhaps you’re literally done with your present abode, ready to follow the rainbow to greener pastures (the new job may well pull you away!). Or, on the internal plane, a long-standing tension in your tribe can find a welcome resolution in wise acceptance, agreeing to disagree and disengage from the struggle and strife. You’re ready to reap the harvest of experience and move on. Potent new possibilities await with a supportive beam between Pluto and Jupiter on June 26th ­ – risking to open your heart to a brave new person or a creative project can pay off big time, if you dare. Point your inner compass towards genuine JOY as you sail these winds of change – your heart won’t steer you astray!

Dear LIBRA, your wanderlust is well awake this month – the planets are plotting to widen your world, inside and out. With Venus, your own gorgeous cosmic patron as your guide, any adventure you embark on can feel like a love affair with Life – hitting the road for the sheer JOY of it is superbly supported by the stars. Fresh seeds of possibility swirl in the air as the New Moon of June 4th tickles the curiosity to venture beyond your intellectual boundaries. A brilliant new direction of study may emerge from casual conversations, just “shooting the breeze” at chill summer parties. As Venus catches up with the Sun on June 6th, the proverbial “lightbulb” can pop on in your head. Deeply felt desires emerge into conscious awareness – lights turn green on the most potent path ahead. Uranus, the awakener gives Venus a friendly poke on June 12th – a creative collaborator can cross your path, injecting an element of excitement into the mix. Winds of change are everywhere this month, it’s best to keep your eyes and ears open, and your mind in the most open and flexible mode:)

Venus crosses the top of your chart on June 17th, attracting ample opportunities to put this newly acquired knowledge to use. The following three weeks are golden for guiding your career to a course towards your dreams and desires. The Summer Solstice Full Moon brings a sense of clarity and closure, allowing you to drop distracting thought habits and embrace a wider vision of life. On a practical level, you’d do well to weed out your contact list and minimize all manner of extraneous information (newsletters, feeds, etc). There’s a difference between enlightened curiosity and omnivorous hunger for info. Discerning that difference, moment-to-moment helps you keep your eyes on the prize.   Point the needle of your compass towards your truest joy and you won’t steer wrong!

Dear SCORPIO, seeds of potent partnerships planted past month are ready to spread their roots. With Venus as your guiding light, this journey into the tender and touchy terrain of physical intimacy can lead to a feast of deep delights. However, the path to this desirable destination is neither straight nor smooth:) Communication is key to clearing all the twists and turns – trusting your dance partner enough to ask some genuine questions. The same dynamic extends to your commercial co-creations – there are brilliant possibilities to tap multiple streams of “moola” if you can hash out a mutually rewarding agreement. June 4th New Moon opens up brand new possibilities for profit and pleasure. Venus, the Lady of Love and Luck graces this Moon with extra powers of attraction – your passion gets a potent boost;) This is not the time to be shy, dear secretive Scorpio! Ask for what you desire – use the modern-day magic wand – a pen –to craft your own incantation, spell or a prayer!

Meanwhile, Mars, the warrior planet has stumbled back into your sign on his long retrograde romp. Projects and plans from way back in February can pop back to the surface, requiring a review. Perhaps you missed a crucial plot point, an “a-ha!” moment that’s been patiently waiting your reluctant return:) Use this glance in the rearview mirror to get really honest with yourself – aim the intense beam of intelligent curiosity at your own secret strategies. Don’t worry, you don’t have to reveal your hand to anyone else;) Mars turns direct on June 29th, unleashing your passion and amping up your energy level big time. As the warrior planet flexes his mighty muscle, you’re now in a much better position to use this mojo with clear and conscious intent. Remember, the magic of the mind is mightier than the sword this month – choose your words wisely!

Dear SAGITTARIUS, with Venus gracing the committed relationship sector of your chart, your special someone can be a genuine source of lightness and JOY this month. The weight of Saturn in your sign has caused cracks of grumpiness to appear in your normally so delightfully buoyant demeanor. Allow your sweetheart to tickle your funny-bone a bit, to coax you into a much needed moment of silliness and perhaps even (don’t tell Saturn!;) an evening of indulgent passion. All the extra work and duties on your shoulders may make you bristle at such a flight of fancy. Venus whispers in your ear: “A better plan is to yield to a bit of pleasure, the work can wait till tomorrow:)” Fresh seeds of passionate possibilities swirl in the air after the June 4th New Moon. As Venus catches up with the Sun on June 6th, deeply felt desires emerge into conscious awareness. Calibrate your inner compass towards genuine joy as you sail these winds of change – your heart won’t steer you astray!   (And, yes, if your work is indeed your passion, these lovely breezes can bring a brilliant business partnership to bloom:)

Full Moon in your own sign on June 20th brings a sense of clarity and closure. Don’t be afraid to discard a dated strategy or two…think of it as compost – the alchemy of letting go releases energy from the prison of old patterns, allowing it to fuel the next round of creation. A potent professional opportunity is in the making as Jupiter, your own generous guide shakes hands with Pluto, the cosmic powerbroker on June 26th. This could move your money game into the big leagues if you’re ready to put all your skills, wit and wisdom into play. There’s indeed no way of getting around work this month, but that doesn’t mean you can’t turn your life from drudgery to delight. Let your nearest and dearest in on your ambitions, sharing the highs and the lows and the far-out fantasies. Adventure is almost always more fun together!

Dear CAPRICORN, May’s mellow and playful waves got your creative cauldron cooking. Now it’s time to test the brand new brew. Practical application of past month’s insights and ideas is the name of the game. Sounds straightforward enough… but, it may turn out to be anything but:) With planets gathering in quick-thinking Gemini, there are tons of details to attend to, but plans and blueprints seem to shift and change in right front of your eyes. June 4th New Moon brings a fresh flurry of ideas, provoking another revision in your routine. This topsy-turvy time can really test your patience, but grumbling will get you nowhere:) There is a method to this madness, if you can shush the chatter of competing thoughts and sense the larger symphony, the underlying melody that drives all this movement. Meditation may well be your magic wand this month – a few conscious breaths is all it takes to return to your center. With the wild winds of change swirling around you, you can stand at the still point, smiling like a Zen master, watching the world go round.

Mastering the magic of the mind is on the agenda at the Solstice Full Moon on June 20th, which brings a sense of clarity and closure. A nagging old pattern may finally be ready for release, a nameless fear or doubt dragged out of the dungeons to see the light of day. If you top running from a ghost, and turn around to face it, you can actually absorb its power, regaining strength you may have lost long time ago.   With Saturn signed on to sweep out the spooks from your personal underworld till December 2017, this is not a short-term strategy. You may as well use this month to practice a few brave moves, dear courageously capable Capricorn!   Becoming a ninja of consciousness is one of the brilliant possibilities, if you can commit to tireless training. It all starts with a single conscious breath:)

Dear AQUARIUS, love is in the air! Cupid is cavorting about you on his cute little wings, ready to shoot an amorous arrow:) Warm summer evenings call for all manner of fun and mischief – playing hookie from work to party in the park with your posse or catching a sunset movie on a rooftop, mixing with a mélange of gorgeous creatives. The vibe is fast and flirtatious, with an exciting edge – winds of change are swirling around you, spreading sparks of bright new possibilities. New Moon on June 4th adds fresh fuel to the fire – you can fall in love over and over again, all in the same instant.   Conversation flows like bubbling champagne, flipping from frivolous to profound. Approach it all with genuine curiosity – a simple question can unlock the heart and mind of a handsome stranger;) If you’re already happily home in long-term love’s safe harbor, this month will refresh your romance with a delicious dash of Summertime spice, poking you to play both naughty and nice;)

The same fast and frolicky wave can carry you off on a cosmically creative adventure , birthing beautiful projects and incredible insights galore. There may be too many tempting options, making you dizzy with delight. The only storm-cloud on the horizon may come from some of your more serious and stodgy friends who simply can’t stand the sight of all the fun you’re having. Don’t let them rain on your parade – if there’s ever a time for some silliness, the sultry days of early summer is it. Point your inner compass towards genuine JOY as you sail through these thunder squalls – your heart won’t steer you astray! You can use this priceless line from “My Favorite Year” to bring around a particularly grumpy buddy: “You can watch me or you can join me. One of them is more fun.”;)

Dear PISCES, after a fertile month of meditating on your plans and paths, your attention is drawn to replenishing your roots. With lovely Venus as your “decorator du jour” till June 17th, beautifying your nest can really boost your mood. Forget about magazine spread sophistication – go instead for colors and forms that feed your soul. This Gemini wave has a playful, eclectic style – stuff that sprinkles JOY into your days, no matter where it comes from or what it costs. You may fall in love with a fortunate find from a neighborhood yardsale, or unearth a forgotten treasure from your own family’s stash. The days around June 4th New Moon can provide particularly “happy hunting”:) Venus lends her grace and style to this Moon’s magic, sending you fresh flashes of inspiration. The “big planets” – Saturn, Jupiter and Neptune get involved, revealing a deeper layer to this dig – as you search grandma’s shed for that vintage chair, you may stir up long lost stories and misty memories. Take your time, let the things tell their tales… you may discover inner riches way beyond any material inheritance.

Venus waltzes into your soul-sister sign of Cancer on June 17th, fueling the flow of cosmic creativity. Refreshing your nest can turn into a real art project as you play with gorgeous colors, textures and light. All this passionate life-force flowing through your being makes you much more receptive to Love on all levels – instead of falling for an amazing antique armoire, your eyes may lock in a fateful gaze with the stunning sales clerk instead;) Enjoy the flowing, fun and flirty vibe of early summer! Look at nature, the proverbial “birds and bees” are busy indeed …why not let yourself get swept away by the sweeter notes in the symphony of life this month, dear dreamy fish! Responsibilities and routine will be there anyway… the planets are poking you to loosen up a little – PLAY!;)



March Scopes – Surfing the Swell of Change

Surfers know these BLISSFUL moments of being ONE with the flow:) 

Surfers know...:)

Surfers know…:)

Practice the Wu-Wei wisdom of the Tao, stop pushing and pulling and let the cosmic current carry you to the next natural action with effortless ease.  Aeternalight Astrology wrote a beautiful piece on this flowing Pisces wave, check it out for its intelligent insight and poetry.

And if you find yourself adrift on a strange sea,  take comfort in philosopher Martin Buber’s wise words: “All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.”  🙂

PS- the pictures in March Scopes are from one of my favorite surf spots: Punta Mita, Mexico.  I’m supremely lucky to be able to hit the waves there this weekend!  Nothing like salt water to clear the cobwebs out of my head;)

The focus of these Scopes is how to best ride the cosmic energy of the month: how to catch the good waves and use the challenging ones as opportunities to transform & learn.
As I saw on the wall of a surfshop: “You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf!” 🙂

MARCH 2016 Cosmic Wave Scopes

Dear ARIES, take a deep breath and… relax. The first weeks of March call for a graceful dose of We-Wei, the Taoist approach of going with the flow, not pushing, pulling or even trying to steer your ship. I know this runs so counter to your usual modus operandi, dear fiery beast! Instead of impatiently pawing at the earth, consider this the natural and necessary exhale before the next powerful in-breath of your birthday season. As planets gather in your House of Dreams, allow yourself the leisure and luxury to simply float on the currents of the cosmic ocean. See it as an adventure: Mars, your fiery patron enters Sagittarius, the sign of the global gypsy on March 5th, waking up your wanderlust big time. If you can swing it, go for an aimless amble on your favorite beach, or a zen-drive down the road to nowhere around the March 8th New Moon Solar Eclipse. This lunation opens a magical passage into the deepest treasure chamber of your soul. Allow yourself the time-space to explore it! Who knows where you’ll surface, and what you’ll turn up;) As the philosopher Martin Buber so wisely mused: “All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.”

The Sun bursts into your sign on March 20th, announcing the start of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and the beginning of a new Solar cycle around the zodiac. Happy Birthday, dear adventurous Aries! Quick-witted Mercury is the first to arrive at your planetary party, zipping in just after the Sun, delivering a boost of mental mojo resembling rocket fuel. The dreamy Piscean slumber party is over, wake up world!

The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse of March 23rd could bring a bit of drama to the celebration: a war of words can erupt with an ex or soon-to-be ex;) This is the last of the Eclipses in your relationship sector for a good long while, wheeew…. let it bring you the GIFT of clarity on who’s really meant to be in your movie. A direct and courageous approach in the matters of the heart, tempered with cosmic compassion gathered from your inner explorations earlier in the month will steer you through this choppy surf without too many broken hearts or shattered champagne glasses;) This Full Moon clears the space for the gifts of April 7th New Moon in your sign – your cosmic Birthday present & emotional re-start – something to look forward to!

Dear TAURUS, the brilliant career wave that kicked off last month continues to carry you joyfully along. With both Venus and Mercury busy in the most public part of your chart, it’s time to shine and showcase your talents. If you’re currently looking for work, the stars are aligned to reel in an enticing offer. Don’t ignore this lovely wave if you’re living the life of leisure (the secret hope of many a Taurean;) – the ancients called this area of the chart the “house of honors” – any way you can contribute to the greater good by volunteering will spark up your social scene, sending good vibes rippling all around.

Fresh currents of cosmic compassion find their way to your heart with the beautiful New Moon Solar Eclipse on March 8th, which opens the doors for new soul-sisters and brothers to enter your circle.  Venus slips into dreamy Piscean waters on March 12th, helping you make the whole month into a love-fest filled with heartfelt healing words and soulful shared silences. A gentle note of caution: all this watery energy can make you more porous, more likely to soak in any vibe around you. Make sure you surf this deep-ocean wave with your best of buddies, and confess your dearest dreams to only the purest of hearts. Otherwise, this Piscean party can end in a toxic hangover-haze:)

The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on March 23rd brings a welcome chance to ditch some of your most annoying addictions and unhealthy habits (Quitting smoking? Or sweet-sweet sugar, an even more Taurean vice?;) Eclipse energy interrupts our habitual pathways, which is brilliant for breaking long-ingrained patterns. However, it can also make us feel rather jumpy and “unglued”…not your favorite state of mind, dear steady Bull. To succeed in this endeavor, enlist the support of some of these soul-buddies you connected with earlier in the month. Hand-in-hand, you can reach the safe shore, freed of all the junk that used to drag you down. Love is the answer, always, and especially this month!:)

Dear GEMINI, Mercury, your quick-witted cosmic patron has been expanding your horizons inside and out, mixing tempting travel plans with fabulously foreign points of view, cooking up quite the creative stew:) This influx of insights nudges you to shift your focus from your own personal projects (or problems:) to humanity’s hopes and dreams. The healing New Moon Solar Eclipse in compassionate Pisces on March 8th broadens the picture even more, allowing you to glimpse the Ocean of Oneness and feel your heart beating in harmony with all the creatures big and small. This Eclipse brings a potent wave of fresh energy to the very top of your chart, the “house of honors” in ancient astrology. Modern practice often reduces this to the “house of career”, but earning your Earthly keep is far too narrow a river to contain the potential of this point. Your Soul’s Calling, your truest mission, your genuine gift to the world are all more apt descriptions of the seeds swept in on this cosmic current. Warning: embracing the gifts of this Eclipse can change the course of your life! Lovely as this may sound in theory, this is not a path you can “dip your toe into”, testing out your options with your mile-a-minute mind. Your heart must be willing to lead, surrendering with courage to destiny’s wild waters. Once you’re “in”, there’s no turning back to the well-planned path you thought your life was supposed to take:)

Andrew Harvey, a modern mystic, writer and activist posed a brilliant and provocative question that can guide you on your path towards discovering this higher octave of your worldly work: “what breaks your heart the most?” (not what you expected, huh?:) Most of us have heard of “following our bliss”, but Harvey dares us to dig deeper by allowing our hearts to break open, to “follow our heartbreak” to our greatest gifts and contributions. Paradoxically, true surrender into heartbreak tumbles us under the waters of grief only to deliver us back into the flow of bliss beyond our imagination: the soulful joy of having our gifts received, the ecstatic energy of living in genuine gratitude and endless energy of creation.   The March 23rd Full Moon Lunar Eclipse can help you shatter any locks and chains that still hold your heart from expanding to the size it can truly be:)

Dear CANCER, as the Sun merged with magical Neptune in February’s waning days, a wave of wanderlust swept through your mind, carrying you off on a voyage of dreams. The veils between the worlds started to melt and impossible ideas seemed suddenly well within reach. This watery wonder-world wave will stretch through most of March, gathering amplitude after March 8th’s New Moon Solar Eclipse in soulful Pisces. You’re on a gracefully guided Quest thru ever higher and wider realms of knowledge and experience. The whole world is your teacher, offering profoundly healing glimpses of the Oneness that pulses and percolates through all the myriad of forms. It’s a powerful time for any journey, inner or outer, that has expansion as its aim. You’d do well to keep a journal to catch the juicy sparks and planetary pearls for future creative fuel. A note of caution: be aware of which thoughts you take in, which ideas and ideologies you absorb – not every river is fit to drink from:)  You can’t stem the flow, but you can easily let stuff go that doesn’t feed your sensitive Soul. Be a wise wanderer, a skillful sailor!

The Sun crosses the top of your chart on the Spring Equinox, followed closely by Mercury, the mental magician. It’s time to put these interdimensional insights to work on the Earthly plane. As the planets gather in fiery Aries, your career mojo kicks in big time. The treasures you gathered on your voyage of dreams are just the tools you need to take the next steps in your worldly work. The most improbable intuitive insight can crack a stubborn creative conundrum or blast though a practical problem with ease. The more you dare to integrate your imagination into everything you do, the greater your contribution and the richer the rewards. Don’t be shy, dear cautious Crab – sharing is caring, after all!;)

Dear LEO, hope you took some time to purr and play with your nearest and dearest, as February drew to close – the “leap day” we get every four years seemed like a perfect excuse for a time out from the daily grind. Early March continues on this curious and cuddly wave, encouraging your forays into intimate encounters. March 8th New Moon Solar Eclipse in soulful Pisces draws you even deeper into the “dance of two” – this gentle, compassionate wave can steer you to share your deepest secrets with a special someone, revealing layers of healing connections with the power to erase whole histories of hurt. Deep trust can blossom from these tender seeds – a trust that touches into realms well beyond this particular person or relationship, hinting at an intimate, passionate communion with all that is. A blissful union of body, spirit and soul is possible if you’re brave enough to set yourself adrift on this graceful, but inherently ungovernable cosmic current. You can’t learn how to ride this wave, you must BECOME the wave, dear courageous Leo!:) Your precious “self “may disappear, perhaps for a mere moment, as you glimpse the “WOW” of wild wonder, potency, passion and delight.

The Sun, your bright and powerful cosmic patron emerges from the mystical Piscean ocean into fierce and forward-looking Aries on March 20th. Spring is here, a fresh new cycle has begun! Mercury, the wing-footed messenger of Gods follows the Sun, igniting an insatiable curiosity in your intellect. Your heart got stretched beyond the boundaries of the “known universe” by the potent Pisces wave, now your mind is ready to reach for the stars in order to integrate the expansion into a new workable worldview. Any activity that feeds your curiosity is superbly supported, as April beckons. An adventurous jaunt to the far shores with your closest companion, or a midnight session of surfing the myriad pathways of the net, it’s all part of your Spring semester in the grand University of Life. Let your heart expand into the great unknown, and your mind will be tempted to follow!

Dear VIRGO, hope you’ve managed to re-jiggle your busy schedule a bit, carving out personal time for romance and play, because planets are aligning to make March a stellar month for more moonlit walks by the seashore:) Mercury, your quick-witted cosmic patron slips into the swoon-inducing Piscean ocean on March 5th, inviting you to loosen your grip on the facts & figures of mundane reality.   On March 8th, a beautiful healing New Moon Solar Eclipse follows, opening the way for deepening togetherness. With all the growth and change you’ve gone thru since your last Birthday, you’re ready to approach relationships from a stronger, more confident stance – no longer looking to lose yourself in self-effacing servitude. This Eclipse clears the path for a brave new paradigm in partnerships where you can both surf a long and lovely wave together. It will take courage to get to this state of conscious co-creation – heartfelt honesty about your own deepest desires and genuine curiosity towards your partner’s dreams. With the world awash in the lush pastel palette of Pisces, you may lose your cool to the “rose-colored glasses”. A tricky feat of emotional intelligence is required to see things CLEARLY and compassionately, but you of all people are capable of pulling it off:) The same exciting dynamic applies to your closest creative and business alliances as well ­ – a new, more soulful way forward beckons, if you can keep your head above the water while trusting the current to carry you.

The potent possibilities of the Pisces Eclipse find fertile soil to produce their first practical fruit later in the month as the planetary party shifts to active and adventurous Aries. Now that you’ve heard the Soul-song of your partner and developed deeper trust in your togetherness, you’re ready to dive in to the cosmic game of creation hand-in-hand. A powerful alchemy where two plus two is way more than four is possible, both in the boardroom and bedroom, oh-my!;) The March 23rd Full Moon Lunar Eclipse helps you sweep out any outdated alliances and professional obligations where you’ve been selling yourself short. Have faith, whatever wanes with this Moon was ready to ripen and rot anyway! Keep your eyes on the wider vistas and water the seeds of soulful unions this month, dear practically brilliant Virgo!

Dear LIBRA, last month’s fun frolicky wave carries you well into the first week of March, sprinkling sparks of romance, magic and mischief in its wake. Your creative capacity gets a boost – brilliant ideas swim around your head like a school of shiny fish, jumping up into conscious awareness in a dazzling dance of joy. It’s almost too much, you may feel, as your mind explodes in kaleidoscopic colors. What you need is more SPACE, inside and out. Luckily, the planets are prepared to pave the way by dipping one by one into Pisces, the most open and oceanic of the heavenly abodes. Creating more spacious, natural flow in your day-to-day doings becomes their “mission de jour”. The healing New Moon Solar Eclipse on March 8th opens the way for a whole new experience of Life, from the tiniest of details to the broadest of perspectives: the more you TRUST the cosmic currents of Life, the more magic will manifest. Inviting GRACE into your most mundane moments and invoking Divine Order in your daily doings is the key that unlocks this flow. Making SPACE for miracles is your mission this month, dear lovable Libra! You can begin by taking a few minutes a day to simply LISTEN. You can call it meditation if you wish, but deep down it’s an act of communion with your Soul, as natural and effortless as breathing. Enjoy the EASE of change, for a change;)

The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on March 23rd steps in to clear out the last of the limiting beliefs and constricting Self-concepts that stand in the way of fully embracing this new, easier and more joyful way of being. The crash course in Self-development that’s been your cosmic curriculum the past few years has kicked your butt big time. Think of this as the final hurdle, the final exam to pass. As the last of the Eclipses in your sign for quite a while, it’s a precious opportunity to take out the trash:) If things feel a bit wobbly, don’t worry – it’s a sure sign you’re on the path to something so new you can’t quite grasp it yet. Trust and courage are your allies, a glowing trail synchronistic sparks will light your way!

Dear SCORPIO, as the planets gather in your Soul-sister water sign of Pisces, get ready to surf a stellar wave of cosmic creativity all the way to April. The potent New Moon Lunar Eclipse of March 8th opens the floodgates to a deep and daring tide that can sweep you into an ocean of joy you didn’t know existed. There’s a strong current of compassion and healing involved that can clear the clogs of doubt from your creative pipeline and wash away any stains of pain from your heart. Eclipses are known for interrupting habitual pathways and bringing in previously unheard-of possibilities.   The key is to hang loose, let the Wave show you the Way:) Lovely Venus joins the Pisces party on March 12th, sprinkling sparks of romance into the already dreamy mix. Time to dust off your dancing shoes, dear sexy Scorpio!;) Don’t worry, you won’t look like a fool: none us know the steps to this fresh new song, we’re all making it up as we go along!

The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on March 23rd shines a searing beam into the deepest-darkest recesses of your inner castle to roust out the remaining spooks of self-sabotage, ancestral addictions and other assorted psychic debris. The past few years’ cosmic curriculum has kicked your butt big time. Think of this as the final purge – as the last of the Eclipses in your House of Dreams for quite a while, it’s a precious opportunity to sweep your Secret Castle clean:) If life feels a bit strange, as if the weave of your world has come undone, unraveled at the seams, don’t worry – it’s a sure sign of the “old order” crumbling to reveal the path of light coming thru. Remember good old Leonard Cohen, the poet-prince of lost souls: “there is a crack in everything… that’s how the light gets in”:) Feed the seeds of creative joy planted in your HEART by the New Moon, resist the urge to force them into a certain structure just yet…breathe, trust…enjoy the emergence!

Dear SAGITTARIUS, Mars, the planet of action marches into your sign on March 5th, giving you a healthy boost of energy and enthusiasm. Fresh off a square with Mercury, there’s a touch of downright belligerence in this call to action. Where to ground all this extra juice without blowing anything up in the process? Work is an obvious answer, you’ve been riding high on a Jupiter wave there, but this month’s cosmic currents call you to redirect your attention for a few weeks and consider the conditions at the home front. March 8th brings a healing New Moon Solar Eclipse at the foundation of your chart, urging you to take the time to tend your roots. There’s a gentle, intuitive flow to this wave, it’s not a call to jump right into an intense home-improvement project. A cozy “staycation” is a far more appropriate answer – a long yummy bath, followed by a meditative drift into the dreamscapes will melt the tension of the past months like magic. A bit of late night fantasy house-hunting can get your creative juices going – where would you really like to live, if money and other Earthy obligations were not part of the equation?   Far from useless, this meander of the mind can unearth your deeper longing for belonging. Yes, there may indeed be no place in space that can contain your restless spirit for long, dear adventurous Archer… but it’s fun to play, imagining the twists and turns your life could take!

The Sun crosses the Spring Equinox on March 20th, emerging in fiery Aries. Mercury, the messenger planet follows close behind, jolting you out of sweet slumbers. After a refreshing nap, there’s twice the mojo to get moving. Perhaps some of those places you dreamed about are tempting enough to have a real-life look? There’s a playful, flirty vibe to these explorations, it might be fun to test the waters…but, as Mars is set to reverse course mid-April, you will likely reconsider any spur-of-the-moment choices. Your best bet is to simply enjoy this juicy, sexy wave without rushing to commit to any person, project or place. It’s the tingle of Spring in your veins, the siren song of cosmic creation… let yourself play with possibilities. There’s real wisdom in a lighter touch – it gives the Universe a chance to kiss you back, dear sexy Sag!;)

Dear CAPRICORN, the great career mojo awakened by last month’s New Moon continues well into March. With Venus, the Lady of Love & Luck as your agent, you can pitch that ambitious new project or ask for a bonus that’s worthy of your considerable contribution. Communication is the key to all of this, as you well know. Luckily, planets are aligning to give your thoughts and words extra polish and potency this month. But, this injection of intelligence has nothing to do with facts & figures, quite the contrary: the March 8th New Moon Solar Eclipse flips the switch 180 degrees from logic, opening the doors to incredible intuitive capacities that may have lain a bit dormant under day-to-day cognitive functions. It’s a bit like moving up to the penthouse with a panoramic view – wow, there’s a whole new level of understanding available that makes life flow with enviable ease:) Tapping into this emergent essential KNOWING takes quite a bit of courage and TRUST – there’s nothing firm to hold on to, no set procedure to follow. But, the boost of processing power is palpable. A higher level of ethics is required to unlock this capacity – the brilliant mind must merge with a caring heart to wield words this potent. Are you ready to step up to enlightened leadership, dear capable Capricorn?

The March 16th alignment of generous Jupiter with Pluto, the cosmic powerbroker (currently on a long-term mission to wake up your secret superpowers!:) urges you to think bigger and broader. Extending your reach beyond familiar shores via travel or online communication is a great way to make these cosmic bigwigs work for you. You’re maturing into a teacher and a mentor, even if your actual profession bears no resemblance to anything academic. The March 23rd Full Moon Lunar Eclipse offers a chance to reshuffle your responsibilities and drop the roles you’ve clearly outgrown. This is the last of the Eclipses in your “house of career & honors” for quite a while. If you’ve been on the fence, biding your time for the “perfect moment”, the Universe may just give you the nudge (or a kick:) to quit that boring position and set your sights on a path that truly thrills you to the core.

Dear AQUARIUS, the planets are lining up to put the glamorous new gadgets and shiny sparks of insight bestowed upon you in your Birthday season into practical use. With Mars, the man of action at the top of your chart the past few months, you’ve been busier than a bee. As you catch a breath, ask yourself: “How do I feel about all this outward flow – is there a balance of giving and receiving, does what comes back feed both my body and soul?” Mars is set to retrace his steps later on in April, offering an opportunity to realign your public role with your true passion. This process gets a jumpstart this month with the beautiful healing New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces on March 8th. Eclipses interrupt habitual patterns, bringing in a brand new way of looking at things. This one asks you to surrender any lingering doubts about your inherent worth or value, and open yourself up to be a true vessel of Grace to all you serve through your work. This soulful quality is already present in your essence, the potent cosmic currents around this Eclipse simply sweep out whatever mud or crud was obscuring its true scope and reach. The challenge is to TRUST the twists and turns of this deeply intuitive flow, to appoint your Heart the captain, with your brilliant mind as the faithful crew:)

The March 23rd Full Moon Lunar Eclipse delivers the final blow to any constricting concepts or less-than-spacious views you still may harbor in some hidden corner of your mind. Yes, even you, the utopian innovator of the Zodiac, have a tendency to “get stuck” on a limiting mental groove once in a while!:) Independent thinking versus intellectual collaboration is the axis that attracts this Eclipse’s firepower. The aim is to transcend this seeming duality and birth a new paradigm where collaboration can flourish in an atmosphere of mutual inspiration and creative cross-pollination – the kind of grand School of Life where you’re both a student and a teacher at the same time, contributing your knowledge while eagerly integrating the insights of others. Sounds like a fun place to be, even though it may take a bit of ideological wrestling to get there:) This new way of learning has a huge role to play in your search for more soulful work, so there’s a direct practical benefit to boot!

Dear PISCES, Happy Birthday! Enjoy weaving a fresh set of starlit trails of adventure in the vast ocean of the world! There’s a potent planetary party gathering in your honor this month. Celebrations started as Sun swept into Neptune’s dreamy embrace on Feb 28th, dissolving the “small self” into blissful waters of Being. If your Birthday fell on or shortly after that date, expect a year of strange and magical journeys into what it truly means to be ME. You may not recognize the face in the mirror by the time your next Birthday rolls around… in a good way – the light in your eyes will shine with the gorgeous glow of distant galaxies. Mercury, the messenger planet is next to arrive, splashing into your sign on March 5th to heighten your incredible intuition and tune the whole world to your wavelength. A healing New Moon Solar Eclipse follows on March 8th, ushering in a whole new way to be YOU. This deceptively gentle, yet deeply potent cosmic current can connect you to your true vastness, dissolving any doubts about your essence as eternal Song of Spirit echoing thru all time & space. TRUST is the key to mastering the practical magic of this immense and intimate KNOWING. You can heal and help others by simply being here, fully present to the woes and wonders of our Earthly world, simultaneously surfing the stellar tides, beyond the beyond!

Sun crosses the Spring Equinox line on March 20th, followed by Mercury the next day, sparking the first exciting chances to use your interstellar insights in the Earthly game of creation. The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on March 23rd can clear any lingering doubts about your material mojo, helping you establish a better balance of power in all manner of partnerships, whether in the bedroom, boardroom or both:) You’ve been working on boosting your practical potency for several years, and this is the last Eclipse to blast thru this area of your chart for quite a while. Don’t hide under the covers, dear sensitive soul, let light of this Moon clear the cobwebs of codependency from your co-creative ventures for good. With Venus, the Lady of Love and Luck in your sign till April 5th, you’ll have an unfair advantage to attract exactly what you need as you navigate these currents of change. Don’t worry, your cosmic compassion and innate generosity won’t let you play unfair!;)

New Moon in Scorpio – Treasures of the Deep


3 of Earth – Growth

Tomorrow, Nov 11th, a subtle wave starts at the bottom of the ocean – the Moon is born again in soulful Scorpio.  There’s a beautiful healing and “whole’ing” possibility here, with supportive beams from Chiron in compassionate Pisces and Jupiter in verdant Virgo.  Pluto, the potent ruler of this Moon lends a hand as well from steady and committed Capricorn.  We can plant seeds of our deepest dreams into the fertile darkness, and TRUST the process of growth happening far below the surface. It is a kind of leap of faith, to put a seed or a bulb deep into the cold dark autumnal soil and believe that something beautiful will pop out in Spring.  Similarly, the inner impulses we set in motion around this New Moon will grow to full flowering in 6 month’s time.  Patience, patience…:) This image, an illustration from the Vision Quest Tarot for “3 of Earth- Growth” kept popping up as I thought of how to transmit my sense of this Moon’s promise.  You can use it too, to remind yourself that now is indeed the time to tend to the deep desires, with full faith in their potential to bloom.

This Scorpio Moon invites us to embrace even the darkest, most unlovable aspects of ourselves – our shame, our pain, our failures and hopelessness – everything that’s been locked away in the darkest dungeons of our inner castle.  For in these secret chambers Dragons lie – our wildest potency, our fire-breathing creative lifeforce is buried there under a pile of fear and regret.  The Dragon came to me in meditation this morning, inspired by tonight’s rather unsettling dream (yes, pay attention to dreams right now, please!  create moments of silence, of free-form reverie on the currents of consciousness… gather up the CLUES that lead to treasures there, clues that no one else can give you…).  In a flash of goofy brilliance, I used the Harry Potter spell “Relashio!” to free my inner Dragon (Harry used this spell to free the Dragon that was chained to guard the Gringotts Bank’s oldest and richest vaults).  Very effective!:)  Try it, perform whatever sorcery you need to release your inner resources from any bondage you or anyone else has put on them.  No person, project or a vault of gold is worth your undying devotion – this is a chance to recover and redeem yourself, no matter what you’ve done or been.  “I’d rather be whole than good”, said Carl Jung.  This beautifully supported Scorpio New Moon is the perfect time to learn to LOVE your Dragons.  TRUTH and TRUST will set you free!

PS- The banner photo is from the Witches & Wizards’ gathering in my backyard a few weeks ago.  I’m the Witch on the left:)  and, the nebula in this NASA photo looks kind of like a Dragon descending…well, it does to me:)

November Scopes – Sexy Soulful Season of the Witch

Do you dare to bare your Soul? With Sun and Mercury in sexy Scorpio, it’s time to dive deep!  Fearless pursuit of truth leads us into raw and tender territory.  True intimacy with Self and Other is the delicious, dangerous fruit tempting us to take the risk… What magic are you willing to weave this Season of the Witch? Check your November Scopes for some spellbinding suggestions;)
