Are There People Who Are Truly Incompatible With Others?

When under stress, it’s common to choose a shadow person to blame. I do it. I bet you do it too. You’re all keyed up so you start thinking about this person you don’t like. It distracts you. This is an 8th house thing by the way. Pluto. Scorpio. You’re using this person. They don’t even have to be anywhere near you. You don’t even have to know them to use them. I was doing this yesterday and I got wondering if I could get along with this person I was secretly dumping on, if I tried. Next thing I knew, “Jaded Lover” was playing in my head.  Jerry Jeff Walker. What a great song. “…Still, we’d never agree if we talked all nightThings are getting kind of heavy and I’m travelling lightGoodbye you jaded loverYou undercover queen for a day…” He’s talking ab...

Weekend update: Mercury direct, Venus in Leo, and Neptune Rx

Weekend update: Mercury direct, Venus in Leo, and Neptune Rx Art by Marie Desbons This has to be the strangest Mercury retrograde in recent memory, at least for me. As many of you know, I like to soothe people’s anxieties about Mercury retrograde and the truth is that snafus happen when Mercury isn’t retrograde too. Yet this one has brought a strange Neptunian layer, because to Mercury's change of orientation in a square to Neptune. Orders are not just going wrong, but also missing. Contractors who provide inaccurate information based on incorrect assumptions. Schedules being disrupted by people showing up when they said they wouldn’t. It's bizarre Maybe it’s worse for me because all of this has happened right on my Gemini ascendant. Neptune has been stationary in the sky through the enti...

New Moon Solar Eclipse: Something New on the Horizon

Something Fresh on the Horizon with the New Moon Solar Eclipse I’ll just apologize straight out for the weird formatting of this post Mercury retrograde is in full force -i’ve already written it three times .

We've just come out of a couple of stressful weeks in which Mars (warrior) picked a fight (or two) with Pluto (power and control) on the other side of the zodiac. This silly back-and-forth - projecting and counter-projecting, and so on - is so tedious Despite this, we (or at least I) get sucked in every time Many people are looking for a path beyond the polarities these days, and the eclipse energy may provide a fresh window or doorway through which to observe the world.

6.22.21 – La Fortuna smiles with the Cancer Sun trine Jupiter in Pisces!

6.22.21 – La Fortuna smiles with the Cancer Sun trine Jupiter in Pisces! Jupiter, the planet of luck and good fortune, has tiptoed into Pisces, where it can increase and enhance one's sense of confidence and opportunity without bounds.  It will stay in Pisces until July 28th, when it will retrograde back into Aquarius, and everything we do will have a thread of mysticism and transcendence running through it.  The Sun is in a harmonic trine to Jupiter today, and we are likely to be showered with luck and good fortune for the next day or so. Luck doesn’t always hit us over the head – sometimes we don’t even notice that things are going well and this is the real lesson of a fortunate planetary cycle such as this one. We also have a long-lasting harmonious sextile from Saturn (structure) to Ch...

Full Moon Glory! Capricorn Mastery

The Full Moon should be applauded Capricorn Mastery Everything appears to move in cycles in the universe. Inhalation/exhalation, contraction/expansion, Yin/Yang. In the middle of the world's turmoil, studying history reveals that cultures are made up of people, places, and things that cycle in and out. The cycles can carry on indefinitely because everything has a beginning, middle, and end. Expansionary times. Contraction periods. That had been a fantastic experience. This now is a terrible time. For the time being. It's the greatest of times, yet it's also the worst of times. "And in the circle game, we go around and around" Take note of the links between all of the planets, as well as the dance/interplay of the galaxy's energies. As Astrology tells me...

Full Moon Glory! Capricorn Mastery

Glory to the Full Moon! Capricorn Mastery  Everything in the universe seems to move in cycles. Yin/Yang,inhalation/exhalation,  contraction/expansion. In the midst of the madness of the world,   studying history shows us there are continuous cycles to cultures made up of people, places and things. Everything has a beginning, middle, and end, therefore the cycles continue indefinitely. Expansionary times. Contraction periods. It was a good time.  It's a bad moment. In the interim.   The best of times,  the worst of times. “And we go round and round and round in the circle game!” Notice the connections between  all the planets –  the dance/interplay of the energies of the galaxy we live in.  Everything is cyclical, and everything is connected, as Astrology reminds me. The Full Moon in Cap...

An important astrological week: Capricorn Full Moon, and much more

An important astrological week: Capricorn Full Moon, and much moreToday’s Capricorn Full Moon is being advertised in mainstream hype as a SuperMoon but it doesn’t technically meet the standards set by Richard Nolle who came up with that term in the 1970s as a way to describe a lunation, or syzygy, which was at its closest point to Earth and therefore more powerful.  In any case, the Full Moon is a potent force in and of itself. We are at the equilibrium point of the Capricorn/Cancer polarity at a Capricorn Full Moon.  Our exterior experiences are filtered via the prism of feeling and emotion while the Sun is in Cancer.  The Moon in Capricorn, on the other hand, puts a lot of pressure on us to get things done, to find our footing and achieve a sense of grounded stability.  The Full Moon mar...
