Astrological Happenings

We start our week Monday June 28 on a much quieter note than last week, although vibrations will continue to linger as a reminder that changes are still in the works. Moon enters Aquarius, and we become desensitized as to what life may throw our way, allowing us to behave more intellectually. We're motivated to be the 'bigger' person and help those who are less fortunate. As Sun (identity) and Mercury (communications) form a conjunction in the nurturing realms of Cancer, our purpose and joy becomes much more clear. It's a good time to pay it forward.. read more >>

Astrological Happenings

Happy Summer Solstice! Monday June 21 is a day of great light and energy as it is the longest day of the year. During the next three months, we should put ourselves into personal or professional projects to help determine our path. The amount of time and effort that we use to work towards these goals - the richer our investment becomes. There are no excuses as to why you try harder now, as Sun finally leaves Gemini, giving us more quality time to concentrate ourselves as socializing becomes of less importance. As Sun enters into the homebody realms of Cancer, this can cause us to crave for more privacy and personal security. Only important , trustworthy people are allowed to enter our secluded domain. We'll be relaxing in seclusion while getting in-touch with our domestic side. Cancer's 'parenting' personality creates an inner need to care and nurture, so don't be surprised if you decide to take on a stray cat, an estranged friend or family member, or even an ex-partner! Mothering and playing house comes natural to us, and in healthy relationships, this can truly bring out the best in each partner as the extra work proves commitment. For partnerships that are struggling, the partner who is trying harder to make things work will mostly likely experience resentment when their effort isn't being reciprocated or appreciated. With Pluto and Neptune both retrograde, our emotions are cooled down and reserved, helping us to see life from a more sensible perspective. As we detach, we can figure out what we need to change and read more...

Detachment, letting go & cutting ties..

I want you to think about the number of major changes, breakdowns, and acts of defiance that were a part of your 2003 - 2010 when Uranus 'The Awakener' entered Pisces, ruling our illusions, dreams, and 'our reality'. Uranus was literally 'waking us' to what we had been experiencing (or imagining) in hopes to release us from guilt, hopelessness, and drowning in our sorrows - and restore new faith and inspiration in our lives.


If you are searching for your true self and worth again, I have created a mediation using creative visualization and the tarot with a simple, but deep inner work to lead you in the right direction. Here's a short clipping:


"...followed their path, you went on yours. You made a HUGE sacrifice to find your way. There isn't a lot of traffic on this road of higher thinking, so loneliness was to be expected. All that you have learned, experienced, developed, and manifested in the past seven years - is ready to be put to rest. Your soul searching for change, answers, and healing has been... read more >>".

Astrological Happenings Horoscope

Venus enters romantic Leo Monday June 14, and she will be truly enjoying her stay in this godly mansion for the next four weeks. Venus rules relationships and money, and Leo rules heart and passion. Together, they love to wine, dine, make love, spoil each other, and simply enjoy the good life. It's what we work hard for, isn't it? Venus' job is to create beauty and desire in our life, and she's doing so in a BIG dramatic way while traveling through Leo! Don't be surprised if we find ourselves wanting to spend a little more lavishly on ourselves or on our loved ones in the coming weeks - and we're not talking cheap baby - we're talking the good stuff and the B-L-I-N-G!! We want it, we want it now, and we're willing to completely invest ourselves to get it. Hair-makeovers, back massages, skin treatments, jewelry, and glittery clothes are a must if we want to show off our new look of confidence! Romantic partnerships will be ready to dance the night away to enjoy a perfect 'happily ever after'. Business partnerships will form now, or they tighten their bond at this time. When it comes to money and finances, some of us may need to give ourselves just an allowance if we're on a tight budget. Investment can prove to be quite favorable at this time, but be sure to do your homework first. Like everything, Venus in Leo has a dark side. Our natural viciousness can be exposed, as we can become jealous, protective and territorial. When you least expect it, you're loyalty will be tested.


Our emotional approach to life becomes action-oriented as Moon enters Leo. We don't have time to wonder about our feelings, as we need to be quick and in-control. It's favorable energy to get to the heart of the matter and to indulge ourselves into a creative project. A sparkly Venus/Uranus trine allows magic to happen as opposites attract (kinda like what happened when chocolate collided into peanut better!) Don't be too quick to say no, and dare to try a new route today - as something out of the ordinary is bound to have you going 'ga-ga' and craving for more.


In the Tarot, we have The Empress (Venus) who shares, supports and comforts Strength (Leo). In return, Strength befriends The Empress and contributes his worldly goods and treasures to her. It can truly be a match made in heaven. On the flip side, when material interests are exchanged with attachment, a dark need for power and control can develop - where Strength can feel threatened, reacting out of defense.

Now of course I want you all to enjoy the fun and the moments when 'material things' may look like love... but I also want you to remember that real love is pure and simple, and it doesn't need 'things and bling' to make it work. Otherwise, someone could bite the hand that feeds it. So enjoy, indulge, and play it smart.


A day of blessings on Tuesday June 15, as golden opportunities form throughout this day, so make yourself available to it. Enthusiasm and optimism charges our batteries as Venus/Jupiter trine romances us with an abundance of temptations. Then we've got something to gain as a Mars/Pluto trine leads us directly to what we have been searching for. Whatever you call it, flirtations, sex appeal, love, read the complete article >>>


Make it a great week!

Stop All Bailouts of BP Rally in Pgh Tomorrow!


WHERE: Mellon Square (the corner of William Penn Place and 6th St., Downtown) 529 - 540 Smithfield St., Pittsburgh, PA 15219 (Map)

WHEN: Wednesday, June 9th, 12:00 PM

WHAT: "Join MoveOn and PennEnvironment in calling on Congress to stop all bailouts of BP and Big Oil with taxpayer money. That means BP, not taxpayers, need to pay every penny to clean up their disaster in the Gulf. In addition, Congress is considering another gift to Big Oil at the public's expense this week by voting to further delaying action on global warming at Big Oil's request. A new report will show that this will cost Pennsylvanians money at the gas pump and increase our dependence on oil, all for the sake of Big Oil's profit margin. We'll also call on Congress to support strong campaign finance and ethics reforms -- so that Congress starts working for the 98% of us who aren't represented by DC lobbyists."

Astrological Happenings Horoscope: June 7-June 13

Life is a jungle, and to survive it's constant maze, we must learn to rely on our natural instincts and ability to react quickly when a threat appears. Knowing this, think about your own life and the recent tasks and obstacles that you have conquering for the past months, in either your personal or professional life. Since October 2009, Mars has been very busy traveling through the heavy forests that are ruled by Leo (of course, as he IS the king of the jungle!). These vibrations have been available to increase our bravery and confidence, to do what was necessary, to get control in our lives. Now that we've been reintroduced to our inner strength and defined our territory, we must nurture and protect it, as Mars will move into Virgo on Monday June 7, til the end of July. The aggressive energy that Mars has, will burn differently now, as it's energy is more contained, if we are to protect the home fires. Rather than react instantly as in Leo, the energy is grounded, slowing things down so that we find patience and create a plan that is proven to outlast past decisions in order to bring us success. Luckily for us, Virgo is a perfectionist who is quick to critique over the simplest detail, but they rule when it comes to improving ideas. For Virgo's, or signs with Virgo being prominent in your natal chart, Mars can give you the fiery passion and edge that you have been looking for. Mars also rules sex, so you can expect your appetite for connecting with another to increase.


Virgo rules our service to others, our work, health, and personal well-being. Mercury rules Virgo, communications and the way we process our thoughts. Mars will energize many of these areas - where we may become overwhelmed with thoughts and ideas flooding our brain and speech. Mars can be just the fuel you needed to get on a fitness kick or to jumpstart new projects at work. On the flip-side, Mars can create anger if it feels stifle or taken advantage of. Mars will increase its aggressive speed to get to the heart of the matter. We could become extremely defensive, and determined to protect what we've been freely giving away. Mars can be a little too excessive for the more sensitive Virgo's and stir more nervous energy and cause sleepless nights. Virgo rules the respiratory system, the intestinal tract, and bowels. If you find these areas becoming irritated, it may be time to step back, check your food intake, and de-stress with meditation, creative visualizations, or affirmations.


As Mars enters Virgo, he will also be temporarily rooming with Saturn (another tough cookie) who has been helping us to clean up self-defeating patterns for the past five months. Mars will create a feeling of urgency to make things happen NOW, but there's a good chance that we'll feel stifled with the heavy responsible energy that Virgo and Saturn are made up of. It's a time that we can thank our lucky stars for Virgo's 'nit-picky' influence, helping us to become just as anal over the simplest details in our life - which is for our own good - to slow impulsive behavior so that we can patiently make smarter choices. Look to the house that Virgo rules in your natal chart to help your figure out what direction that you want to go in: fixing ourselves or trying to fix another. Here are a few words of wisdom: no one can be fixed, unless they are doing it for themselves. Be a little selfish now, and concentrate on your own personal growth.


"I have found that the only thing one can be sure of changing is oneself." Aldous Huxley


Our emotional approach to handle life becomes self-righteous and blameless in today's Aries Moon. Use this sensational cardinal energy to create our week on a good note, as Aries likes fresh starts and new beginnings. get ready to jumpstart a new project, but let new ideas erupt now - to create the perfect intention for this weekend's New Moon.


Our approach to life is more tolerant and observant as Moon enters Taurus Tuesday June 8. It's a favorable to day to concentrate on de-cluttering, organizing, and enhancing what we have in our life. Later, we become disciplined and reserved with a Mercury/Saturn trine which can produce good progress and opportunity. Communication is clear, structured, and precise. A good time to work on paperwork or finances that need attention.


You must weed your mind as you would weed your garden. ~Astrid Alauda


We have a spectacular and rare event that can open doors and create opportunities with a Jupiter/Uranus conjunction. Jupiter expands, donates and increases, while Uranus rebels, electrifies, and changes. Your luck is sure to change, which can allow you to reap the rewards of what you have been busy sowing (or not sowing!). As these these two 'outer' planets meet and connect, we can take advantage of the time that it takes for them to disconnect over months ahead! We can expect great flashes of light and illumination. They glow brilliantly in Aries, stimulating both completion and advancement. Organizations, groups, and circles of friends increase. Technology will expand in a really big way. Jupiter rules religion, publishing, and education, so we could see some major changes really start to develop in these fields. On the flip side, an overwhelming amount of agitation could have some choosing detachment in a big way. Rebellious individuals, bullies, hate groups also grow. The weather will be just as erratic and moody as they sit in furious Aries. More strength and increased numbers in hurricanes, tornados, micro-bursts, lightning strikes, and fires. Use caution with electrical outlets and appliances. To know where a major shifts and change of luck is happening in your life, check your natal chart for the house that Aries rules. Expect the unexpected, and the unpredictable.


In my opinion with the tarot: The Wheel of Fortune (Jupiter) creates movement and a huge shift in our secure world as we see in The Emperor (Aries). The Wheel of Fortune provides luck, blessings, and chance. A windfall of goodness (or not so goodness) depending on the hands of fate. The Wheel of Fortune (our circle of life) is similar to the game of roulette... one that can be the cause of great 'blessings' or great 'affliction'. Sort of like when we wish we would win the lottery, and for some it's the best thing ever - and for others, it was nothing bit a curse.














The Fool (Uranus) offers us a brand new start. Depending on the individual, this can either be great - or not so great. Great lessons bring great rewards in some form or another. Choices that we have made are being judged by the Universe, and our destiny relies on the karmic wheel of consequence.


Illusions and forgetfulness may get the best of us on Wednesday June 9, with a Mercury/Neptune square. We could struggle with responsibilities today, so be patient, write notes, and be careful on the words we choose.


There's a lot of emotional activity in the cosmos on ThursdayJune 10, so remember to go with the flow. Inner harmony is available to us with Mercury/Jupiter/Uranus sextile. Mercury also enters his natural home in Gemini, activating logic, socializing, and an interest to study something new for the next few weeks. Our concentration is at it's best (unless you have conflicting aspects in your personal chart). Moon also joins in on the party, entering Gemini, which is helpful to put sensitivities on the back burner for awhile. Basically it's a good day, and we only have one bump in the road with a Moon/Mars squares later this evening.


We're still flaunting our socializing skills today at the water cooler, and there's a busyness in communications with phone calls, emails, texts, faxs, and so forth on Friday June 11. use caution later as a Mercury/Mars square could expose our impatience with an aggressive choice of words. These vibrations are bound to bring out 'the sore loser'.


We have a friendly Gemini New Moon on Saturday June 12, and it's time to rethink our desires and to put our intentions out into the Universe. We start a fresh emotional cycle with new possibilities to achieve our goals. Use this time to plant a thought or idea and give it time to grow underneath the care of the Lunar Goddess. Since the Moon is in Gemini, we should have our 'wish' revolve around communications, friendships, siblings, neighbors, learning, and short trips. A Venus/Saturn sextile produces satisfaction in a job well-done. After dinner a variety of aspects that challenge the New Moon could create an internal edginess that craves space and solitude. As Luna enters Cancer later this evening, we might be okay with some quality time to self-nurture.


There are a few aspects that can cause us a little confusion in the wee hours on Sunday June 13, which may cause disturbing sleep or communicative dreams, but the rest of the day is clear in the cosmos, so make it a great weekend!


Roses are red, Violets are blue; But they don't get around, Like the dandelions do. ~Slim Acres

(LOL, I'm a fool for wildflowers like dandelions and daisies, which is POSITIVE reason for the dandelion photo!)


Make it a great week!
