July Cosmic Forecast

julycosmic.jpg

My cosmic babes — happy cosmic filled July. This month is filled with all the cosmic energy; solar eclipses, two new moons, there are two retrogrades — all the yumminess in growth and healing. I’m sure most of you shuddered when y’all read “two planets will go retrograde” — but my babes, take retrogrades as a way to look inward, heal, and grow. Be open to all the magic that is going to happen this month.

July 1st — Mars enters Leo

A fiery planet is entering the lovely, fiery sign. Mars is the planet of aggression, what we stand for, how we fight. This planet has so much fire and so much energy, and it is entering the fiery, confident Leo. This cosmic energy is going to push us to show up in the world with confidence and passion — use it.

July 2nd — New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer

Happy new moon and solar eclipse, my babes. Today is going to be filled with so many deep emotional feels, and let me tell you why — Cancer is a deeply emotional sign, she is a protector, and makes you feel like home. A solar eclipse (kind of like the planet Jupiter), will magnify these feelings. Cancer is water sign, and the new moon is a time to step inside, sit down with ourselves, and sift through all the things we need.

Tonight allow yourself to feel all the feels. Sit in a cozy part of where you live and sit with yourself, and have a good cry. There are so many yummy things you can do tonight that can serve you; sage yourself, write down things that no longer serve you and release them through fire, right a list of the things that bring joy and comfort into your life and start to incorporate those things into your day to day, write out your intentions for the month, meditate during the solar eclipse (1:08pm-3:44pm CT) using “So Hum” mantra (I am), lie on your back and place a yummy drop of rose oil on your head, take a yummy bath. Do something that fills your cup up today — self care.

Sift through all the things you want to plant and see flourish or transform in the next six months. Your goals and needs may still be out of reach and you may still have work that needs to be done, but allow yourself to feel what you need to feel about those things and realize that you are growing and expanding into your path.

July 3rd — Venus enters Cancer

Oi — my loves, this month is seriously jammed packed with all the deep feelings. Venus the planet the rules relationships, love, and beauty enters Cancer the sign of home, feelings, protection today — aka: we are going to be feeling very deeply, tender, and sensitive. Again, let yourself feel all these feeling and allow yourself to peel back your vulnerability sides.

July 7th — Mercury Retrograde

I know — gasp! — Mercury Retrograde is here and I know most of you are already moaning and groaning over it. But my loves, this is not a time to fear or get anxious about — Mercury Retrograde (like every retrograde) pushes us to re-assess, reset, reflect, re-think, re-learn. It’s a good thing and it is a time to allow growth to happen. Yes, things can get a little wonky but flow with that.

Mercury is the planet of communication, the way we speak, the way we interpret things, and even your past. When this planet stations, things get a little wonky and frustrating. Everything that falls under the umbrella of communication can get fritzy. The past may pop up — aka: romantic relationships, situations, people. Again, this can have us running in fear but this is truly a gift for us to reevaluate all the things that happened during those different chapters.

Mercury Retrograde is actually a time to help us; it is a time to break away from the things that may no longer serve us, reevaluate the things that no longer serve us or what holds true for us, allow the moments that there are major forms of miscommunication to be a time to reflect, reflect on the past that is popping up and see how much you’ve healed.

July 8th — Chiron Retrograde

Chiron, the wounded healer, goes retrograde today. This will be a time for some real deep and profound healing for all of us, for the world. Chiron energy will have some deep healing energy surfacing up to change you and your power. I love Chiron and love how much healing it tends to us — even the really painful ones.

July 16th — Full Moon and Partial Solar Eclipse in Capricorn

This full moon lunar eclipse in Capricorn is going to be so amazing, so fruitful, so healing, and have so much release. Lunar Eclipses, like I mentioned in New Moon in Cancer, is all about magnifying and bringing on extremely potent energy. Again, my loves, so many feelings. Capricorn is an earthy sign — so plant your feet on the ground, go out in nature. This moon is a time for you to really dig deep and sift through all the things that may no longer serve you and your purpose — sit with them and release it.

July 19th — Mercury Retrograde enters Cancer

Fun fact (for those that may not know this): Mercury Retrograde will always be in the same element it enters — this year, Mercury Retrograde entered in a water sign (so it will be in all 3 water signs) — just a heads up. Cancer is all about nostalgia and emotions — the next few weeks might circle around talks of the past. Feel them and remember them but don’t get too swept away with these thoughts / feelings.

July 22nd — Sun enters Leo

Aye! Happy Solar Return my Leo loves. Leo, the sign that is ruled by the sun, is known for being loud, charismatic, always the center of attention, life of the party, being bold and proud. This transition will not only be affecting Leo’s — this transition will have all of us feeling a little bolder, louder, prouder. We will feel the drama and the pull to really being seen. And you know what — let that light shine, babes. Allow yourself to roar, be seen, be loud, be proud. Spread that beauty with those that surround you. Celebrate yourself.

July 27th — Venus enters Leo

Sprinkle all the love and admiration wherever you go — no seriously do that, and this is seriously the perfect time to do so (yes, we should do this all the time, though). During the next few weeks, shower those around you with all the love and support and pep talks. Give them the compliments they deserve and need to hear, and don’t be afraid to receive that love back too.

July 31st — New Moon in Leo and Mercury Retrograde Direct

First I just want to say — WE DID IT. We made it through Mercury Retrograde. How do you feel? What did you reflect on? We will definitely still be feeling some aftermath affects until we leave it’s shadow (August 15th), but we made it through the thick of it. We are also entering our second new month of THIS month and it is in our shining star, Leo. Allow yourself to go inward and shine a bright fire on the things that you are passionate about. Celebrate you. Sift through all the ways you want to show up with yourself and this world. Take care of you.

June Cosmic Forecast

junecosmic.jpg

Happy June and New Moon in Gemini my loves. The beginning of this month is going to be filled with a ton of information and (possibly) fast pace communication, and maybe a little confusion.

June 3rd — New Moon in Gemini, Neptune Pisces Square

Happy new moon my sweet cosmic babes. The new moon in Gemini arrives on June 3 at 3:02am PT — this new moon will remind us that our words hold so much power. Mercury, ruler of Gemini, a magician in tarot and ruler in how we communicate. My rising is in Gemini and the only way I can explain what it’s like to have Mercury be my chart ruler is by comparing it to having a ridiculous amount of tabs open (and I really do have that going on in real life).

Remember, what we choose to fill our brains up with is essentially how we view our world. So choose what you read, what you engage with, how you speak / listen to wisely. Put down the phone and sift through some yummy information that fills your soul up.

June 4th — Mercury enters Cancer

** Enters emo music ** Mercury will be in Cancer until June 25th — Mercury, how we give / receive communication, will be entering our mother sign (Cancer). Cancer is watery, motherly, nurturing, and sensitive. Be prepared for deep feelings and sharing those deeps feelings with those you care about.

June 8th — Venus enters Gemini

Venus, the planet of love and relationships is entering flirty and flighty Gemini. Have fun with this; laugh a lot, flirt a lot, go on adventures, get curious, connect, and be free. But be careful — sometimes Gemini’s can become a little “gossipy” out of excitement or wanting to connect. Be mindful with how you connect with relationships during this time. Avoid connecting with others through gossip. Connect and have fun with all the things you have relationships with, and get curious.

June 17th — Full Moon in Sagittarius, Jupiter Neptune Square

Happy Full Moon my beautiful babes. Tonight is a fire moon. Tonight is about standing in your truth and letting go of what no longer serves you. Tonight (and until the next full moon) is about freedom. Sagittarius energy is all about truth seeking, travel, being curious, and expanding. Neptune, the planet of invisible realm and fantasies and spirituality and dreams, will be squaring Jupiter the planet of expansion and luck and wisdom. Things may feel a little confusing or hazy; feel through it and know that this is temporary. Burn and release all the things that you have outgrown or no longer hold as truths.

JUNE 21ST — NEPTUNE RETROGRADE

That is right — another planet will station retrograde, and this planet will stay retrograde until November 27th. But please don’t be afraid — I know that retrogrades tend to get a bad rep (hello Mercury Retrograde) but in all honesty, retrogrades are a time to slow down and recenter. Neptune is one of my favorite planets — it’s beautiful, dreamy, spiritual, a little delusional, psychic, and imaginative.

This is such a perfect time to expand in your spirituality and dig deep. This retrograde is probably one of my favorites because moon in Pisces feels such a pull to my spiritual side and I always tend to grow more in that area, and gain more cosmic knowledge. Allow your soul to grow. Allow your soul to explore. Since Neptune is such a dreamy planet, be sure to ground yourself from time to time because your mind / day dreaming will wander a lot more than usual during this time.

JUNE 21ST — SUN ENTERS CANCER, SUMMER SOLSTICE

Happy Solar Return Cancer babes, and Happy Summer Solstice. Wow, what a magical and powerful day. Cancer is ruled by the moon — emotions, the mother. Summer Solstice represents reflection, growth, new beginnings. We have Cancer who loves to stay nuzzled in (introverted) and Summer Solstice pushing us to sit outside and explore (extroverted). What a beautiful force, amirite? To be able to bring your inner workings out into the world; to stand in your truth, your power, your magic. This is such an exciting time / day to explore your deep feelings and desires and dreams. The impossible is possible.

JUNE 26TH — MERCURY ENTERS LEO

Mercury, the planet of curiosity and communication, enters Leo, the sign of ego and attention. Expect a lot of dramatics and grand acts with communication. Communicating may have you feeling more confident. Express your thoughts with passion and fire — inspire those around you, inspire yourself. Remember to listen to those who are expressing their passions and fire with you — allow others to inspire you, too.

May Cosmic Forecast

mayforecast.jpg

Hey my sweet angels — HAPPY MAY and all things magic. So much beauty and magic to experience this month. We have an earthy new moon this Saturday, then we welcome a full moon in Scorpio — all things shadow work and looking inward, and then we end the month with thought provoking conversations.

May 4th — New Moon in Taurus

It’s a new moon in Taurus babes; the second sign of the zodiac, the creators of the zodiac. Taurus is ruled by Venus — the planet of beauty and love; it also rules over the throat, neck, vocal cord, and thyroid. This new moon in focused on our worth; where we seek it, how we measure it, and where do we feel secure. We are all on a self-worth journey and in many ways — seeking some sort of validation from somewhere or someone. Do you measure you worthiness by your bank account, the car you drive, the clothes your wear, how many friends you have, admiration from others? Know that you are worthy and your worthiness is deep within.

May 6th — Mercury enters Taurus

Taurus is earthy, grounded, and the first fixed sign — Mercury is the planet of communication and thoughts. Mercury will be in Taurus until May 21st — expect your thoughts to be grounded and practical but also leave room for change (Taurus is not a fan of change).

May 15th — Venus enters Taurus

Venus is feeling at home right now — Venus is the ruler of Taurus. This is such a magical and beautiful time; indulge in all the goodies but be careful to over indulge. Soak in the moments, treat yourself to that manicure or pair of new jeans, savor the moments you eat a yummy meal, practice self-care. This is a time for you.

May 15th — Mars in Cancer

Mars the planet of war, aggression, impulsivity, angst, assertion, what we stand for. Cancer the planet of nurture, mother, protection, and home. These two combinations will have us looking inward to exam what needs healing or protection when it comes to your family / home life. Our emotions might be running high during this time — feel them. Lay out much needed boundaries, allow yourself to heal or work towards healing, feel.

May 18th — Full Moon in Scorpio

It’s here — Full Moon in Scorpio, and you guys — this one is going to be such a transformative and magical time (full moon in Scorpio is one of my favorites). Scorpio not only brings out our dark side — it slays it in order to grow deeper into our truth. Scorpio is filled with emotion and is highly feminine. The next few days will be intense and high, when you are starting to feel like you’re unraveling — ask yourself if what your feeling is to help you grow or triggering something that you need healing from or truth. Be on the lookout for a more in-depth breakdown and ceremony / ritual for this full moon.

May 21st — Sun enters Gemini

The sun enters Gemini (my rising sign) ; the twin sign, loves to learn, moves quickly. Get curious folks — try out the things, learn all the things, push the boundaries. Like I stated already, Gemini is a twin sign — look at the other side of you. TRY NEW THINGS. Push yourself out of your comfort zone.

May 21st — Mercury enters Gemini

Mercury is feeling snug and at home — Mercury is the planet of communication and thoughts. The next two weeks communications and thoughts should feel more fluid. With the sun and Mercury in Gemini — this is such a good time to learn new things, talk about all the things with different people, connect with others, get curious, have fun, explore.

April Cosmic Forecast

aprilforecast.jpg

Hey babes — happy April 1st and welcome to my new monthly cosmic forecast. Last month I gave you beautiful babes a little sneak peek to what to accept for my monthly Cosmic forecast. I’m hoping to simplify it and deliver it in a way that gives you enough info but also isn’t too confusing. This is a practice that I’ve been doing for several months now — going through (important) transits and either keeping them to myself or sharing with friends. So I hope that you all enjoy it as much as I do. There’s a lot of energy happening this month (THREE retrograde planets) and most of you are probably feeling it, too.

April 5th — New Moon in Aries

Y’all — New moon, new you, new astrological year, new things to tackle or start on. This new moon will be in Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, the sign of the self — this energy is going to be super potent, super fiery, super energetic, and a perfect time to start making moves on things that light your fire. What are some things that excite you — that light your fire? This is the perfect day to start it. Wanting to start that blog? That podcast? Write a book? Share your writings? If there is something that your soul craves to share, share it. This world needs your passion projects.

April 10th - Jupiter Retrograde in Sagittarius

Today, April 10, Jupiter Retrograde begins and will last until August 11. Jupiter Retrograde happens about everything 13 months and lasts for 4 months. Jupiter is a planet that most love; it is the planet of joy, luck, and success — it expands its joys in wherever it lands in your chart. I know, we’re all gasping right now — but what does it mean with retrograde attached to it? It just means this is the perfect time for reflection, introspection, growth, and reevaluating.

Reflect on the things you’ve asked for, your blessings, your gifts. Are you sharing your gift with others? Are you ready for the things you want? Are you ready for the blessings that are attached to the things you have asked for? Are you read for the work that comes with your blessings or gifts? Jupiter is slowing down so we can slow down to revisit things that we have asked for or share the gifts we need to share with the world.

Do you feel worthy of the things you’ve asked for you? Do you feel worthy of the gifts you have? Revisit this question throughout the next four months. You guys, and I need to take my own advice, we won’t ever able to truly receive or reap the benefits of the things we ask for or the gifts we want to share if we don’t FEEL worthy of them.

WE ARE WORTHY. YOU ARE WORTHY. I AM WORTHY.

April 17th — Mercury enters Aries

Mercury, the planet of communications and thoughts will be entering fiery Aries. Aries in very impulsive and can be very brash — so for the next three weeks, we need to be very cautious with our words and how we deliver our words. Find ways to be softer and gentle. Aries are such passionate creatures and sometimes their impulsivity can get them in trouble.

April 19th — Full Moon in Libra

Babes — Happy Full Moon. This is the SECOND full moon in Libra, and I am so excited to be able to harness this energy on an even deeper level. Libra rules our relationship to things, to our romantic partners, friendships, and thrives in a balance life. So tonight lets celebrate with the ones we love and are connected to, and if you can’t celebrate with your people — celebrate for them and send off good intentions for you and your loved ones. We are the love that we give.

April 20th — Sun enters Taurus

And just like that, we are at the beginning of Taurus season. Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus — the planet of beauty, love, comfort, and security. Like I mentioned before, we have THREE planets retrograding this month… so are in need of some grounding energy, self-care, and self-love. What are someone ways that you take care of you? How do you ground yourself? Find those things and do them; buy those fancy shoes, take a luscious, go on a nature walk.

April 20th — Venus enter Aries

Oi — we have beautiful Venus entering fiery Aries today. So all our love might be intense, passionate, hot, maybe a little impulsive, and war-like. Mercury is also in Aries — so same advice, lets find gentle and softer ways to express ourselves if things get a little too heated and / or passionate.

April 24th — Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn

I know, it’s scary whenever planets go retrograde, but instead of tensing up and freaking out over it… lets find ways to embrace it and take it as a time to look inward and experience growth. For the next five months, Pluto will go retrograde. Pluto is the planet of death, rebirth, and transformation. So for the next five months, we are forced to surrender ourselves and look deeply inward and focus on the things we want to transform. What are things you want to transform and grow in? What are things you want and / or need to change? A lot of things will be brought up for us to revisit in those areas… flow with it. Know that all the power struggles and low key pain will ultimately help us grow and heal.

Allow these next five months to break old habits in the way we think of ourselves and allow our hearts, soul, and mind to release old sayings / habits, transform, and grow.

April 29th — Saturn Retrograde in Capricorn

Saturn (father planet) is the ruler of Capricorn, will stay retrograde for five months. Saturn, the planet of lessons, restrictions, order, and organization and Capricorn, the sign of hard work, goals, and structure. So like every retrograde, we need to revisit and look inward. Where are areas you can reorganize? Where can you revisit and restructure plans, ideas, businesses that may have fallen through the cracks or set to the side? This is the perfect time (and perfect energy) to organize, get your ducks in a row, and get it all done.

Spring Equinox + Full Moon in Libra

marchforecast.jpg

First things first — hey babes! I know, I know… it’s been a serious hot minute since the last time I posted something on this page. You guys, life has been so intensely busy (in a very good way) and I’m just over here trying real hard to keep my head above water and find some damn balance. On another note, welcome to my new and improved “Cosmic" Sybs” tab / page or whatever you call it. I decided (I planned for this actually) I wanted to start this back up on the Astrological New Year (tomorrow ) — woohoo! So grab your calendars and journals and let me know what you think.

March 20th - Spring Equinox

Okay, but are you ready for a new beginning? A clean slate? On Wednesday, March 20th 4:48 PM CT the Sun will be directly in line with the Equator, giving us equal day and equal night. This will mark the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and Fall in the Southern. The Spring Equinox is ushered in by Aries, followed by Taurus, then Gemini. Enjoy the days being longer, the newness of things, the love, and growth.

March 20th - Full Moon in Libra

This full moon is in sweet Libra, the sign of balance, partnership, and commitment. This full moon will encourage us to find balance. What are things that bring you into balance? What are things that bring you out? Finding balance is hard, believe me, I know… I’m currently experiencing this. The past two months have been so insanely wild (good things, all good things) for me and all I’ve been talking about and yearning for is balance. So I’m continuously asking myself what I need to bring in that balances me out and what do I need to let go of that immediately takes me out of balance.

This full moon is also going to giving us the opportunity to look at our relationship to forgiveness. And I know, forgiveness looks differently to us all, but the way I see it (pertaining to forgiveness during this season) is how we view forgiveness towards ourselves. This full moon will be sitting in with the arrival of Aries season aka: the sign of self, the individual, taking action. So when I look at the two — full moon in Libra and Aries season — I see it as forgiving ourselves, and boy is forgiving ourselves a hard thing to do, amirite?

For example (on balancing things): the full moon will be in my fourth house (the house of roots, home, family, emotions, mother, self-care, women) — so not only have I been thinking about these things, I have been trying to find ways to balance these things out. I currently have a lot on my plate (another post for another day) and I am trying so hard to balance my roots, my home life, and my emotions. I also know there are some possibly exciting new changes for us, too. Do you know where the full moon will land in your chart? If not, shoot me a message and lets talk.

** Fun Fact: In January I pulled the Earthworm from my Wild Unknown Deck and at first was so annoyed by it…then I read the meaning behind this card. It made sense — perfect sense. I was (and still am in so many ways) in the beginning stages of some really new and fun things in my life and I found myself getting frustrated because I wasn’t where I wanted to be, and to be honest — I am in the same place now. I’m still in the beginning stages or starting new things (or other personal family stuff). So this being a Full Worm Moon is pretty dang cool to see two months after pulling my Earthworm card — little, fun reminders.

March 20th - Sun in Aries

The sun will officially be in Aries for the next month — prepare for impulsivity, passion, drive, and enthusiasm. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac (Astrological New Year), an energy that brings a sense of self-interest — physical vessel and self. Aries energy can be very impulsive; be mindful of new projects you may want to start, especially if you know these are projects you will not finish. Aries is all about drive and initiation — use this energy to light a fire under the things that you are passionate about, or maybe start that thing you always wanted to start up but didn’t know exactly when to do it.

March 20th - Chiron conjuncts Aries

Chiron enters Aries completing a 50 year cycle. Chiron (for those who may not know) is an asteroid known as the wounded healer. Now, this does not mean our wounds are weak or something to turn away from. Chiron encourages us to hold space for ourselves and our wounds and to find strength in them.

My Chiron / Aries sun will be in my eleventh house (house of social groups, friends, humanitarian) and what’s so wild to me (cue in the eye rolls haha) is that I feel like I have been having this tug to finally heal in old social circles / friends (and maybe even current social circles).

March 26th - Venus enters Pisces

Pisces is ruled by the planet Neptune — deeply intuitive, a lot of emotions, empaths, illusions. Venus, the planet of love and beauty, enters in this water sign. Here we have this amazing opportunity to reflect on love, and not just on the romantical side love but allll the love. Lines can be blurred (Pisces / Neptune bring in illusion), so setting boundaries and intuitively listening to what the universe is bringing to you.

March 28th — Mercury Direct

Aye! Throw the confetti out y’all — Mercury is direct. This means you guys made it — we made it. Take in all those things you had to reevaluate, revisit on, rethink, or whatever re you needed to do — take it all in and move forward and practice what you learned.

March 31st — Mars enters Gemini

Mars is the planet of action and assertion and Gemini is curious and communicative. So don’t be surprised if your energy is scattered around and you feel like you can’t get a foothold on things — be patient. Find ways to ground yourself during this airy but fiery energy.
