***All times are EDT***

My Brand New Online course ‘The Alchemy of the Asteroid Goddesses’ starts on September 20th! It is interesting to see that the astrology this week includes TONS of transiting aspects between several of the Asteroid Goddesses (Vesta, Ceres and Pallas) and the outer Planets Uranus, Neptune and Eris. Pay attention to how the astrology this week is unfolding for you personally but also collectively. It’s a great week to see the Asteroid Goddesses in action ;)

Monday August 28th-
At 3:51am Mars at 0’29 Libra sesquiquadrates Jupiter at 15’29 Taurus- creating tension between the Will and Drive at the Aries Point and the Planet of expansion and excess at the Solar Beltane degree! We essentially have Mars and Jupiter triggering the Solar Gate degrees of Solstices/Equinoxes and Cross Quarter Days. These 8 points in the Wheel of the Year are powerful activation points- so Mars/Jupiter can set things off in a big way personally and also collectively (pay attention to the news). With both Mars and Jupiter in Venus ruled signs- and with Venus still retrograde- part of what we need to take action on can be related to relationships, finances, self worth and self Love. As this transit occurs in the early morning hours- pay attention to dreams upon waking for messages from the Unconscious.

Vesta in Gemini sextiles Retrograde Eris in Aries at 5:38am, linking the Priestess Asteroid Goddess with the Activist and Warrior Goddess. Vesta in Gemini is devoted to clear communication and coming back to beginner’s mind. All actions taken or words said coming from this place can serve evolution and transformation in profound ways. Being devoted to your brothers and sisters of humanity and collectively taking a stand for Truth is on offer. It is a sacred path to follow- as we straddle the personal and the collective experiences we are all navigating. Staying devoted to the causes close to your heart and taking one small step at a time in the right direction is the best path forward right now.

At 10:39pm Uranus stations Retrograde at 23’04 Taurus- making the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener the most powerful planet in the sky! With Uranus at standstill we are advised to expect the unexpected. Uranus’ sole purpose is to upset the old order and instigate change. With Uranus in Taurus change is coming into the stable, secure but also stagnant and stuck areas of life. Taurus likes constancy and Uranus is about anything but constancy! Our finances, the financial world, our values and self-worth and self-Love are due for some activation! Being willing to let go of that which we hold onto that holds us back is key- be it things, attitudes, relationships and more. When you find yourself grasping- unclutch! Uranus in the Venus-ruled sign of Taurus is also about a Revolution of Embodiment, an awakening of the Divine Feminine on the planet (not just in women but the feminine in all of us) and HUGE changes happening in our value systems and the way we inhabit mother earth and our bodies. Stay open to change on a dime today!


Tuesday August 29th-
At 3:56am Stationary Retrograde Uranus in Taurus quincunxes Ceres in Libra, creating tension between the Rebel and Revolutionary and the Great Mother Asteroid Goddess. With both bodies in Venus-ruled signs we have focus on relationships and partnerships (romantic, financial, family and more)- as well as finances and resources. There is an upset going on where things are being revealed that have been swept under the carpet. Seeing and facing reality is key to navigating the terrain this week with the utmost care- calling in grace and ease. Being willing to destabilize or turn upside down relationships and situations that were stagnant and stuck, pretty on the surface but toxic underneath- is key.

Stationary Retrograde Uranus in Taurus trines Pallas Athena in Virgo at 10:38am, linking the Rebel and Revolutionary with the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess. In Embodied Astrology Uranus is connected to the Grail of Wisdom in the head- and his link to the Goddess of Wisdom doubles down on the capacity for profound inspiration and realizations to be incoming today. Stay open to seeing things from a new perspective. Even if it knocks your socks off- the Truth will set you free! With both bodies in Earth signs the winds of change are blowing in finances, work, health, and the 3D world around you. Align your sails in the right direction and let the current take you into the future!

Keep in mind that Uranus just stationed Retrograde last night- so Standstill Uranus is linking with both Goddesses today amplifying the nature of the transits.  Pay attention to where instability, change, revelation and/or the unexpected is incoming and flow with it for best results!


Wednesday August 30th-
At 7:56pm Retrograde Mercury in Virgo quincunxes Retrograde Chiron in Aries- creating tension between the Conscious Mind and Intellect and the Wounded Healer planetoid. Mercury/Chiron can bring us face to face with old wounds and pain around communication, seeing/dealing with reality and how we deal with our anger and rage. The masculine is in the midst of major healing and upgrade but first all the shadow around masculine energy within and without needs to come to Light. This is the 2nd of 3 Mercury/Chiron quincunxes due to Mercury’s Retrograde journey. Connect the dots to August 11th when the first one happened to see the story that is unfolding.

The Full Moon at 7’25 Pisces is exact at 9:35pm EDT – marking the midway point of the Lunar Cycle we are in that began with the New Moon in Leo on August 16th. This is a Super Full Moon and a calendric Blue Moon (2nd Full Moon in a calendar month)- amping up the emotional energies BIG TIME! This Full Moon is conjunct Saturn which can be heavy. If we are overly emotional we can find ourselves sucked into the vortex of emotion. If we are overly heady we can find ourselves cutting off from emotions and feelings. Saturn is showing you where your own personal Saturn in Pisces lesson is- gaining greater mastery over emotions, opening your heart, having healthy boundaries and more. Pay attention! At best we can use Saturn’s mastery in mystical magical Pisces to take our dreams, inspiration and intuition and do something masterful and tangible with it.

Thursday August 31st-
There are no major transits today.


Friday September 1st-
At 5:01pm Mars in Libra quincunxes Retrograde Saturn in Pisces, creating tension between the two Malefic planets. Mars is in detriment in Libra- meaning he is not well placed in this sign. Mars the Warrior wants to focus on himself and make things happen- while the sign of Libra is relational and focused on others, often constantly weighing options and never making a final decision or move. With Mars in tense aspect to Saturn we may find our action-taking and decision-making capacities even more hindered than usual. At best we can use this astrology to see clearly where we have over sacrificed ourselves for others OR where we have been keeping the peace at any cost- and then we use the heavy but focused energy of Mars/Saturn to deal with things head on. Mars/Saturn actions need to be taken slow, steady with one step at a time. The slowing down energy is key as moving too quickly makes us miss things or act on things without having all of the info on hand. Slow goes it today!


Saturday September 2nd-
At 8:43am Retrograde Neptune in Pisces squares Vesta in Gemini, creating tension between the Planet of Idealism and Illusion and the Priestess Asteroid Goddess of focus and devotion. Neptune and Vesta have an aligned energy as they both like to focus on the Divine- yet the tense nature of the aspect can make it so we are avoiding seeing reality and instead getting stuck in fantasy, illusion or projection. Information, communications and thinking is not crystal clear- there are many layers to things that make it hard to discern Truth from lies, fact from fiction, fantasy from reality. Being willing to question things, come back to beginner’s mind and come from the place of “I do not know- Universe please show me the way” is key today!

The Sun in Virgo sesquiquadrates Retrograde Eris in Aries at 4:16pm- creating tension between the Conscious self and ego and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos! Staying open to sudden revelations of Truth is key today. Eris disrupts what is already out of integrity and out of alignment- it has just been hidden underneath the surface but now it is coming up and out. She is a revealer of Truth- so use the Sun’s discernment in Virgo to get clear on what is out of balance in your life right now and then get to working on it! (Otherwise Eris will create some drama to get your attention!)

At 8:44pm Pallas Athena in Virgo quincunxes Retrograde Eris in Aries, creating tension between the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos! This is combative astrology so watch out in communications where things can get extra firey and feisty. Pallas in Virgo sees the details and wants to discern the Truth. Eris in Aries is pure fire and anger and rage. We want to have healthy outlets for our emotions right now or we may find ourselves exploding in them (too much Eris) or internalizing and stuffing them and having them manifest in mental or physical health issues (Virgo). At best the activism of Eris is showing us new information and Truths that could be shocking but also clarifying and freeing once seen and accepted.


Sunday September 3rd-
At 6:34am Ceres in Libra opposes Retrograde Eris in Aries- creating tension between the Great Mother asteroid Goddess and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. It is interesting to see that Eris has been the one common denominator in all the Asteroid Goddess astrology this week/ Vesta, Pallas Athena and Ceres have all aspected Eris- bringing wake up/shake up energy into the mix. Ceres/Eris brings disruption and chaos to home/family dynamics, relationships and partnerships, and to the things we have been precariously balancing without dealing with what is underneath the surface. Eris serves in bringing up and out all that was suppressed and repressed – pushed down and in. It is excellent astrology for not doing that anymore- and the more you claim this energy the more agency you will have with how it unfolds. If you stuff it/deny it- then the Universe has to do more to wake you up and shake you up ;) Choose wisely!

At 6:39pm Retrograde Neptune in Pisces quincunxes Mean Black Moon Lilith at 26’41 Leo- creating tension between the God of Illusion and the Fierce Dark Feminine. Neptune/Lilith creates tension and friction between mystic and illusionist and the Dark Feminine who wants Truth at any cost (no matter how unpretty it may be). Neptune and Lilith can bring some very potent magic into the mix- but there can also be some deep BS to navigate and see through in order to get to the Truth. Illusions, delusions and deception can run rampant right now. Dissolution in relationships and agreements of all kinds are possible right now, but the positive side of this is that that which was not real or True is being released back to Source. Being aware of how we run ego energies is key (Lilith is in Leo after all). If we overdo ego or underdo ego- the call is to see our patterns and come back into right relationship with ego. Open Heart/Healthy Boundaries is a great mantra right now!

At 8:19pm Vesta in Gemini sextiles the Mean North Node in Aries and trines the South Node in Libra, linking the Priestess Asteroid Goddess with the Nodes of Destiny & Karma. Pay attention to what comes in today in the form of communications, information and realizations. They can open the gateway to the future and also help clarify and resolve the past. Devotion to healthy and open communication and coming from an open mind will take you far today!

At 9:20pm Venus stations Direct at 12’12 Leo- bring the Underworld Journey of the Goddess of Love and Beauty to an end. We still have the backend shadow of her journey to navigate- but know that turning points are underway. All that you have reevaluated in the last 43 days in terms of Love, relationships, finances, values, self worth and self Love is going to be ready to be acted upon. Venus stations in double square to Jupiter which can be benevolent but also over the top. Watch out for excess in spending, eating, indulgence and more. Healthy self Love is being called for. What would your life look like if you were fully Living from the Truth of your Heart? Are you ready, willing and able to make the changes that need to be made to align more deeply with your Heart? Pay attention to all that is being revealed today as Venus is showing you where your journey is calling you forward. It’s up to you to listen and follow!
