FEB 3 - MAR 1 • VENUS Enters CAPRICORNWe mean business now especially with our finances and our creative partners. Our relations with creative structures and forms gets an extra boost. Reliability, resourcefulness, and realism are traits we seek for our relationships, be it in work or romance. Venus in Cap seeks these rock-solid connections; after all, it’s about the long haul not the fast sprint. It’s less about feels and more about teamwork and partnership in its truest sense. Venus in Cap values what’s tangible and will do the work to follow the rules/steps to make her dream a reality.

FEB 4 • NEW MOON in AQUARIUSThis Aquarian new moon will heighten our quest to connect to our spiritual communities and/or Collective work. “Stronger, Together” is the mantra for this New Aquarius Moon. We seek networks/groups that will support the growth and changes we aspire for the next 6 months. This also means cleaning house — evaluating which connections are positive and uplifting and which ones are negative and stagnant. With this New Moon we can set our intentions on meeting more high vibrational Souls and aligned creative partnerships.

FEB 10 • MERCURY enters PISCESMercury likes to be direct and straightforward; after all, in delivering the message they want the recipient to hear and understand the message clearly. Pisces is highly empathetic and intuitive. She happily swims in her fantasies and day dreams. Ruled by the limitless Neptune, Pisces connects deeply with spirituality and all things hidden from plain view. So communication, thoughts and messages arrive in an intuitive and emotional mode during this time — all things non-logical. We might receive messages literally in our dreams or get a sense of feelings/emotions around certain people, places and things. We find that we’re speaking more from an emotional place then from a psychological place. Dive into these depths to see what treasures lie beneath.

FEB 14 • MARS enters TAURUSThis is the meeting of two very head-strong forces. Mars is driven by the sheer power of will and Taurus can be the stubborn, immoveable wall if it wants to. This transit can create a standstill where nothing happens. Or the opposite can happen, they can decided to join forces and over-indulge. We can find that we want to overspend and live more lavishly since Taurus is a lover of all things beautiful and refined. Know that this is strong masculines energies. It’s best to be open and flexible than set in our fiery, earthly ways.


FEB 18 • SUN Enters PISCESWe move from forward-thinking, humanitarian minded Aquarius into the deeply-emotive watery sign of Pisces. Naturally empathetic, Pisces is very in tune with her feelings and dreams. Her ruling planet is Neptune — there is no limit to his imagination and depth. There are no walls or boundaries that can hold him in. With the Sun in Pisces, we are more sensitive to our surrounding energies. We are motivated more by our feelings than our rational logical thinking. We are more driven to expressing parts of us that are repressed and suppressed. Be careful of drifting too far from reality and being lost in a sea of dreams. Also, we should be mindful not to take anything too personally. Sometimes, another’s behaviors and reactions aren’t directly about us —that what they are going through is completely separate. It’s just that we can picking up energies more easily at this time, so it’s wise to create healthy boundaries. Also, Pisces is the most spiritual of all the signs. During Pisces season, make it a practice to connect to your spiritual practice daily so you can live and feel deeply.

FEB 18 • CHIRON enters ARIESChiron is the Cosmic Wounded Healer. All Souls have a wound we carry — either from our karmic past, childhood traumas, or incarnated experiences. Our human journey is dynamic and complex. It’s not always the easiest and smoothest. Things happen to us that are hard to grasp or justify. Chiron shows us the source of our wounds. Chiron helps us to see the potential of our inner healer. With Chiron in Aries, we are more incline to use this knowledge to move forward. We accept our circumstances with more honesty. We are motivated to change the cards we are dealt with. We even realize that our pain is our greatest strength, that in experiencing our wounds and overcoming them, we can then help others do the same. Our wounds become a bridge in which we can connect with others in an authentic and genuine way. We use this bridge to reach each other. We use this bridge to cross over trouble waters. We use this bridge to arrive at higher ground.

FEB 19 • SUPER FULL MOON in VIRGO • “God is in the details.” This could not be more true for Virgo — the gatekeeper of sacred space, daily routines, health, systems and being of service to others. There is a purity and idealism with Virgos. Their controlling reputation derives from their focused vision and ability to see things in its truest essence so why would anyone want to do things differently? Earthy perfectionist Virgo doesn’t care about the spotlight. What she cares about is that everything has its place and for things to run smoothly. This Full Moon asks us to reflect on what systems are working and which systems aren’t for our evolution — or better yet, how can we upload to our 2.0 versions. This Full Moon also highlights our role as a healer — either healing ourselves or others. We are reminded of our essential purity and Light and how we can be of service to those we love.

DEC. 31 / JAN 1 • MARS Enters ARIESEven before we start the New Year, there is a big bang with Mars (Will, Action, Courage, Change, Aggression) moving into his home sign of Aries on Dec 31st! He's been in Pisces (Spirituality, Feels, Daydreams) for some time now. If we’ve felt the tension of wanting to move forward but drowning in our feels, we have Mars in Pisces to thank. This homecoming into Aries allows Mars to be more himself. We are more confident, direct and clear in regards to implementing necessary changes in our lives. Be mindful, however, of how we direct this EXTRA energy and who it’s aimed at. Before we decide to leap with our eyes closed, it might be a good idea to sleep on a major impulse just to be 100% sure. Rushing only leads to regrets!

JAN 5 • MERCURY Enters CAPRICORNMercury rules our communication style, our intellect, our wit and how we process information. Mercury moving into Capricorn (Work Ethics, Ambition, Techniques) will give us more structure and practicality to the way we engage with information as well how we communicate and express ourselves. There’s definitely more of a serious tone with Capricorn – less sugar coating and more “getting to the point.” To balance this transit is to remember that being lighthearted and having a sense of humor is a more universal path to connection – that laughter is the best and the fastest way to connect with others.

JAN 6 • NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE in CAPRICORNIn divine timing with the New Year, this Solar Eclipse in Capricorn initiates a 6 month cycle that has us focusing on our long term career goals as well as how we present ourselves to the public world. Since Capricorn’s ambitious nature wants to be seen – not by superficial means or appearances – but through the lens of hard work and achievements. It’s about the sweat equity earned and even the tears we’ve shed to get us to our end goal. So what would you like to see manifest by June? Where have you played small in the past? What attributes will you personally own now? How will you create structure and discipline to manifest your truest desires? Are you motivated by blind ambition or loving intentions?

JAN 6 • URANUS Direct in ARIESUranus (Rebellion, Eccentricity, Surprises) moves direct into Aries making us wildly independent and yearning for true freedom. Our rebellion and attraction to the strange and unconventional magnifies. We question whether the paved path is necessary the right path. We wonder if the path less taken will actually lead us to where we’re suppose to be. We no longer want the same old, same old – the more far out, the better. So who’s ready to get weird?

JAN 7 • VENUS in SAGOf all the transits, this is by far the one to anticipate. Jupiter having been in Scorpio for all of 2018 is now in his home sign of Sag for all of 2019 where he is his happiest and most expansive self. Abundance, adventures, higher education, generosity now flow way more freely with Jupiter in Sag. Having Venus join the Jupiter/Sag party only amplifies our experiences in love and relationships. We allow our romantic, softer side to come out to play. We let our guard down and open to new possibilities in love and adventures. We are not only hopeful but optimistic about that true and deep love. It’s easy to fall in love AND stay in love with Venus in Sag.


JAN 20 • SUN Enters AQUARIUSWelcome to Aquarius season! Aquarius is “The Water Bearer,” or better yet she is “The Truth Bearer.” Aquarians champion personal liberty and independence but not from an egocentric place. She values fairness, quality and humanitarian efforts — that each Soul is entitled to their own personal freedom to live and experience life according to their purpose. With the Sun in Aquarius, we begin to see how our uniqueness, individuality and personal path plays an integral part in the Collective Consciousness. We begin to take ownership of our contribution to the greater good. We rebel against the confines and restraints that are either self-imposed/conditioned upon us either by our families, communities or personal fears. We begin to awaken to a bigger vision of ourselves. We have to be conscious in our Aquarian quest for freedom that we don’t imprison ourselves with our own strong-held ideologies/beliefs. Freedom is openness and the space to explore and create.

JAN 21 • SUPER BLOOD MOON TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE in LEOLeo’s ruling planet is the brilliant Sun. Leo’s essence and true intentions center in the Heart. Of the 12 signs, Leo has quite the reputation for being self-expressive, playful, but also EXTRA and highly dramatic: afterall, life is a cosmic stage and they are the main stars. This is the last of the Aquarius/Leo Eclipse series we’ve been experiencing since 2017. During these two years we may have felt the heighten pull between expressing our heart/owning our Light (Leo aka The Ego/Self) and fighting for radical evolution (Aquarius aka The Collective). A major theme of lunar eclipses is relationship. The relationship we have with our selves — our inner voice, inner thorn and our Soul’s purpose, and the relationship we have with others — our vulnerability, our triggers and our desire for deep connections. Dr. Martin Luther King is the highest form of this Leo/Aquarius duality. He used his Voice/Light to shine, transform and shift the paradigm of separation/hate to Love. This fiery charged Eclipse will ask us the ultimate question: “If not now, then when? If not me, then who?” Remember, always lead from the Heart.

JAN 24 • MERCURY in AQUARIUSFour days prior, we had the Sun in Aquarius which emphasized our self view and contribution as The Truth Bearer. With Mercury in Aquarius, there is a thirst for new knowledge. We are encouraged to use our intellect to communicate and share our original ideas with our communities and the world. There is a new possibility and path for wholeness—that outdated rules are meant to be broken if they no longer serve their function for the collective good. As Bob Dylan sings it, “The times they are a’changin.’” This is a time for push forward with inventive thinking at its highest peak.

JAN 31 • SATURN in CAPRICORN Sextile NEPTUNE in PISCESIn astrology, a sextile is an harmonious meeting of planets in the sky. This sextile between rule-loving Saturn and dreamy Neptune can help us to realize our dreams in tangible ways. An un-manifested idea is an un-planted seed, it’ll never know the sweetness of it’s full potential. Harness this cosmic teamwork to dream big then strategize and plan out how this dream can be achieved. Commit equally to dreaming and actualizing — the energies very supportive to do both!
