A week of lovely energies unfolds as the Sun enters Libra on Sept 22 and we move through the Equinox threshold at a zero-energy point of peace, balance, and internal harmony. Mercury retrograde is conjunct the Sun at 0 degrees Libra, highlighting an important decision or choice to consider at this time. Mercury retro then re-enters Virgo and interacts with Venus in Virgo as they both trine Pluto RX in Capricorn. Powerful truths and understandings are coming through this week that can help evolve you going forward.
The Libra New Moon on Sept 25 is a beautiful time to listen to your own needs, as well as find a new equilibrium point within your own energy field. Much more to share in this week’s podcast episode.

The middle of September has strong mutable signs and Earth sign energies as the Sun continues through Virgo this week, and then opposes Neptune RX in Pisces and trines Pluto RX in Capricorn. Venus in Virgo will square Mars in Gemini, and then trine Uranus in Taurus, bringing solutions and surprises after frustration and discord. Mercury retrograde in Libra seeks re-negotiation and ongoing discussions without rushing ahead just yet. It is a week of staying open, flexible, and allowing, as well as monitoring what you may be holding or carrying that is no longer good for you. More to share in this week’s podcast episode.
A powerful reconfiguration is unfolding this week as our physical bodies realign with new energies and solar downloads. The Sun in Virgo is co-ruled by both Chiron and Mercury, which will both be retrograde as Mercury stations retrograde at 9 deg Libra on Sept 9th. Recalibration is underway, requiring us to physically slow down as a cellular turnover process occurs. The Pisces Full Moon is clearing out old wounds, emotions, soul lessons, and flushing out anything we want lifted out of our experiences now. Much more to share in this week’s podcast.
Leo season unfolds as the powerful Uranus-Mars-NN conjunction in Taurus continues to shake us out of our comfort zones. This energy signature will wildly unfold into May 2023, so we have entered a new phase of dynamic changes between 16 to 18 degrees Taurus in your chart. Mercury enters Virgo on August 3, bringing in much-needed practical discernment and assessments. Venus in Cancer will connect with Neptune and Pluto this week, as Mars in Taurus makes a square to Saturn RX in Aquarius to ensure you’re taking action with the bigger picture in mind. The 8/8 Lion’s Gate Portal is a cosmic gateway to higher frequencies- but you have to leave the South Node in Scorpio energies behind to lighten the load. Much more to share in this week’s podcast episode.
The 8/8 portal is an intense activation period for Starseeds to experience greater consciousness around their talents, energies, healing, origins, and soul mission on the planet. The incoming light codes and neutrinos are opening up dormant soul consciousness DNA and supporting your natural frequency state. Three stars in Orion constellation match up with the three pyramids in Giza, Egypt during this 8/8 portal, further amplifying cosmic energies flowing onto the planet through pyramid energy receptors. Sirius is commonly associated with the Lion’s Gate, but it’s important to note that Sirius is a fixed star located at 16 degrees Cancer. It is the brightest star in the sky; Sirius is 26 times brighter, and twice the size, of our solar system’s Sun. Sirius was viewed in the sky above the pyramids by ancient Egyptians during this time of the year, and it was commonly interpreted as a sign of prosperity, harvest, and abundance.
The Sun moves from Cancer into Leo this week as we also enter more volatile territory with Uranus conjunct the North Node in Taurus at 18 degrees. Strong fixed energies are present making the changes even more dramatic and intense in areas of our lives that have been solid and reliable. Mercury in Leo is active this week with connections to Jupiter, Mars, and Chiron RX, as we approach a powerful Leo New Moon on July 28. If July has felt slow, the pace is definitely picking up this week. More to share in this podcast episode.
The Sun and Mercury in Cancer voyage together over the next week, opening up what we are thinking and wanting to communicate from the heart. But each will oppose Pluto RX in Capricorn at 27 degrees, perhaps triggering where it is difficult to be open and say more if you’re feeling vulnerable or uncertain. Cancer gifts us with trusting ourselves – messiness and all – to go into those untapped parts of our needs. Mercury enters Leo on July 19, bringing in more confidence and personal power around what we are ready to assert. Chiron stations retrograde at 16 degrees Aries on July 19, exposing where we are learning to be softer with ourselves as well as more honest around any parts of ourselves that we have rejected or orphaned. Much more to share in this podcast episode.
The Capricorn Full Moon at 21 degrees on July 13 is an opening to a powerful truth around the state of your life, your energy, your world, and what you want to experience going forward. The Moon conjunct Pluto activates what you’re really feeling – even if it’s uncomfortable at first – so you can realistically assess what is important to you now. The Sun and Mercury in Cancer connect with how you’re feeling around the choices and changes that are unfolding, as well as where you may not feel ready for them. Yet the positive connection to the NN and Uranus in Taurus means big developments are happening now to connect you with a part of yourself that is in higher alignment with what you want, need, and value that may look totally different than what you thought or planned. Saturn RX in Aquarius is the ruler of this Full Moon, and is making a positive trine to Venus in Gemini, opening up the way forward with clear, concrete information. More to share in this lunar video.
The Sun continues to journey through Cancer, opening up more in our emotional body, personal worlds, and heart spaces that we can consciously embrace with strength. We are learning how to be vulnerable and courageous with our emotional truths, while also being the parent that our inner child did not have when we were younger. July begins with a force as Mars in Aries squares Pluto RX in Capricorn at 27 degrees, possibly triggering strong reactions, discord, and fight responses that may feel like a personal challenge. Mars enters Taurus on July 4, just as Mercury moves into Cancer, and the energy softens a bit so we can consider our intentions and words with greater thoughtfulness. More to share in this podcast episode.
The Sun completes the journey through Gemini with interactions to Saturn RX, Neptune, and Pluto before reaching the Solstice. The Sun in Gemini is also crossing over the 25 degree point where Mars will station retrograde in late October, bringing up new choices, directions, and ideas that will be considered in the second half of the year. All three personal planets are in their home signs until June 22 when Venus enters Gemini, providing support and alignment for how our needs may feel easier to identify and work with. The Sun enters Cancer on June 21, the Solstice, and moves our consciousness into our hearts, feelings, personal needs, and looking for truer connections with others. Much more to share in this week’s podcast.
Energies pick up this week as Mercury returns to Gemini, Venus in Taurus conjoins Uranus and the North Node, Mars conjuncts Chiron in Aries, and the Sagittarius Full Moon opens up new adventures after the intense eclipse season experiences. Mercury in Taurus makes a third trine to Pluto in Capricorn at 28 degree, before moving into Gemini, which brings in a powerful truth that we’ve been working with since late April. All three personal planets – Mars, Venus, and Mercury – are in their home signs, which is a very rare synchronistic line-up that moves us forward with greater ease. Answers, solutions, and new directions may be clearer now, even as we dance between our multidimensionality and feeling different timelines simultaneously.

Hello, June! The month begins with Mercury retrograde stationing direct on June 2/3 at 26 Taurus, receiving energetic influence from Saturn in Aquarius that is also stationing retrograde on June 4. You could feel mentally stuck or stagnant, but there is wisdom in this experience too as the Universe may be showing you something important that you’re ready to acknowledge and shift. Mercury is also connecting with Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn, so we are undergoing a deep reprogramming around what we really want and need. The Sun journeys through Gemini and there are fewer transiting aspects between planets this week, so it could feel quieter in some regards. Much more to share in this week’s podcast episode.
