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.
