Reflection from last week (skip down to Long Form Weeklies for this week's astrology)


Virgo season kicked off in the way I expected. I started some very focused work, projects, moving forward and planning (finally!!) But there was often a phone call, an event; something that took my focus. What’s interesting is that all of the things that took my focus were important.


Tuesday’s astrology with the Moon opposite Pluto (amongst other things) took a very literal turn as my dear friend’s father passed away. Supporting my friend around the emotional fallout from this became a big part of my week.

On Thursday-- the day that Uranus went retrograde and Mercury entered Libra-- I awoke to a message recommending me as an astrologer, with a link to my website. This was an amazing and very welcome surprise, and also– quite intimidating. I have been slowly building my website, but there are parts of it that are tougher learning curves. They aren’t my core competency. I struggle with the backend of the website, but know that I also must learn it. This email and subsequent attention forced my hand to learn some new things (Gemini Mars.)


Another hallmark of the day for me was trying to figure out a work trip for my day job, and finding myself thwarted through logistics at every turn. Mercury goes retrograde on September 9th but has already entered its pre-retrograde shadow, and this felt like that. Fortunately, it will have stationed direct by the time I make the trip.

Friday had two fixed squares, which explains was the day was coloured with a “where does all the money go” vibe, and in the middle of errands. With the mutable square, I think I recognized that things are changing and I don't need to feel so stuck. I definitely felt the pinch of financial leanness lately, but Leo season had me spending up a storm in a way I'm rarely comfortable with. In the evening I spent time with the friend who lost her father on Tuesday. We were out on her deck and saw a shooting star, and I kind of wonder if it had anything to do with that yod...


On Saturday after the potent new moon square Mars, and Venus/ Saturn opposition T squaring Uranus- I set down to do writing and preparation towards my website, when my dear friend came over after a particularly upsetting task involving the death of her father. What started out with a request to do a load of laundry turned quickly into a healing circle.

Today (Sunday) I was able to sit down and catch up…sort of. With Virgo Moon opposing Neptune I feel a bit confused by what I am supposed to be doing versus what’s in front of me. The compulsions I am facing are less obvious to me right now. This moon is a bit uncomfortable but a mutable opposition to Virgo moon is in my natal chart. It feels like home to be a bit confused, and unclear what’s going on, and not all that scary. Generally I'm doing well and getting ready for an interesting week!


Long form weeklies


Monday August 29th

Libra Moon Conjunct Mercury @ 3 degrees

Virgo Sun square Gemini Mars (from yesterday)

Libra Moon Opposite Aries Jupiter @ 7 degrees


The week opens up with a fantastic opportunity to hear each other and talk things out. Libra Moon conjunct Mercury is connective, and cooperative; this is a moment of understanding and communication.

With Virgo Sun square Gemini Mars, this mutable square carries a lot of the flavor of last week. We are moving, we have begun to make changes, but there are other things inserting themselves into our panorama. We might have laser focus on where we’re going, but life is what’s happening when we’re busy making other plans. This is the vibe we’re on.


I like this Libra Moon opposite Aries Jupiter aspect for connection. I believe Libra Moon is doing good work here, helping us connect with our beloveds in a way that is healing, deep, meaningful, inspiring. That doesn’t mean it’s going to be fun. Sometimes the most loving and meaningful connections are when we sit in silence while someone cries, or we endure someone from our family who is never going to change, but we love them, and we take it because that’s what you do. Sometimes meaningful connection is drawing a big, fat boundary with someone and saying: You don’t ever get to do this to me again. The idea is, Jupiter gives us this huge expansion, and Libra moon gives us the art of negotiation.


Tuesday August 30th

Libra Moon opposes Aries Chiron @ 15 degrees

Pisces Neptune 24 degrees apex yod (Inconjunct Leo Venus 23 degrees and Libra Moon 22 degrees.)

This week starts to get a bit wackier with Aries Chiron opposing this Libra Moon: there is a twinge of wounding. What was an artful and healing connection yesterday--stings more today-- or something is uncovered. Perhaps we are ruminating on yesterday, or now, we are in a brand new situation.


But now we are kicking off a few days of yods. Side note: I have yods in my chart so I always notice them. With Pisces Neptune apexing this first yod, there is maybe a spiritual revelation coming. A big confusion, perhaps now, leading up to it. Often things get very confusing before they get clear. Can you work in the dark, not knowing what is going on?


A big communion with divine and sacred energy is likely in the next several days. Dreams are going to be potent– have your journal or recorder ready. Those of you who tend to be on high channel frequencies might turn to grounding practices. Those of you who want to connect-in through meditation, medicine journeys, spells, deep bodywork, breathwork, and other energy healing; I expect the next few days to be special.

Wednesday August 31st

Perfect yod from yesterday, all planets at 24 degrees

Add in New Yod: Leo Venus apex 24 degrees inconjunct Pisces Neptune @ 24 degrees, and Capricorn Pluto at 26 degrees

Libra moon square Capricorn Pluto 26 degrees

New Yod! Scorpio Moon @ 4-7 degrees apexes and inconjuncts with Jupiter in Aries at 6 degrees and Mars in Gemini at 6 degrees.


There are three yods today. Our Pisces Neptune apexed yod (supported by Leo Venus and Libra Moon) goes exact today. But Leo Venus becomes the apex of its own yod here, supported by Neptune and Pluto. There is something transformative going on in relationships, in connections, and in our relationship to our abundance. This is a complex web of spirituality, connection, our bodies/cycles and transformative endings and beginnings. Look to Pisces Neptune and Leo Venus to show us where we might be going? What houses are they in your chart, and what are they aspecting?

Libra moon squares Pluto in Capricorn. Cardinal squares are initiative. Pluto is going to get us on track, but we may have to give something up, lose something, or stop with something we’re not ready to let go of. It’s ok, Libra moon will give us the strength to know, and is supporting Leo Venus’s yod. Leo Venus can find her individuality, her leadership, and self in connection and stability. She can do it alone, but she’d rather do it together.

I’m no doctor and I’m not super knowledgeable about pregnancy astrology, but if you are trying to conceive, today seems like a potent day to plant seeds. Maybe it's a project, a piece of art or writing, or a business plan, instead of a baby you're after, but whatever it is: plant those seeds! There’s this quick flash yod today: Scorpio moon apexes with Jupiter in Aries and Mars in Gemini supporting. This yod moves fast but it packs a punch. I bow down to the power and potency of Scorpio moon, Mars in Gemini will go hard and fast like that shooting star I saw last Friday; and Jupiter in Aries knows how to expand, inspire, and make babies (human or otherwise.)

Thursday Sept 1st

Venus apex yod continues, Moon apex yod continues

Scorpio Moon opposite NN in taurus @ 16 degrees, Uranus @ 18 degrees, T-square Aquarius Saturn at apex 20 degrees

Libra Mercury Opposes Aries Jupiter 6 degrees


Yods are known as the finger or god(dess) and Yod is from the Hebrew hieroglyphic of “hand” but also means “god.” Yods come up all over the tarot.


So I think these three days (August 30-Sept 1st) are sacred pointers to our sacred work and role in the world. Virgo season is about devotion, and these yod days can be considered a sacred initiation. Scorpio moon is opposite to NN & Uranus in Taurus, with a T-square to Aquarius Saturn. There are too many heavy players in this aspect to skim over, we are used to this fixed tension and square work, Scorpio moon might hit a big nerve with it.


If you have to do any public speaking, or film a videos, you’ll probably do a bang-up job today. The words you choose will be intentional and communicative, whatever your medium. You can inspire with what you say, or how you carry your message. With Libra Mercury opposing Aries Jupiter, you can do some great things in communicating with people, or just one person. This is an opposition, which I love for communication. It speaks to me like a rousing tennis game, where things hit back and forth, the ball is kept in the air, effort is big on both sides. Oppositions aren’t easy, but they make for better strides in understanding. I don’t really get into easy aspects like trines that much in the weeklies because we tend to undervalue what’s easy anyway. We take our ease for grated.

Friday September 2nd

Scorpio Moon square Leo Venus 26 degrees


This fixed square caps off what was likely a big week for you,--on the inside-- in your tender-most parts. I suspect, by the players, that your relationships were sucked into this yod vortex of time, and that you have come here to September 2nd-- now wondering about your sense of financial security, your individuality, and your closest relationships. There’s a shadow you can’t run away from, you’re feeling perhaps a little beaten down by this work, or perhaps, maybe empowered?


There is power in this fixed square, as you enter into a long weekend (for many of us.) Scorpio moon is incredibly sensitive, and she is mighty. Leo Venus is a shieldmaiden and a queen. She is courageous, and she will do it alone if she has to.


Leo Venus is compassionate and courageous. Scorpio Moon sees all of you, even the parts you try to hide. Reconcile these two and find a deeper love within.

Saturday September 3rd

Sagittarius Moon opposite Gemini Mars @ 7 degrees, bit of T Square Virgo sun @ 10 degrees

Sagittarius Moon square Virgo Sun @ 11 degrees

Libra Mercury opposes Aries Jupiter @ 6 degrees

Sagittarius Moon inconjunct NN Taurus @ 16 degrees


Sagittarius Moon is the star of the show today as she opposes and squares up a storm. You’d be hard pressed to have not had a major expansion, epiphany, up-level, game changer this week. But maybe you don’t even realize it yet. Moon opposing Mars T-square to Sun will see our earthly, humble egos grappling with bigger questions, about our actions, about our place in the world. If you have the actual time to sit with any of this, do it! Virgo season is busy, everything is ramping up, if you can find even 10 minutes to spend with yourself, you'll be doing yourself a favor.


Libra Mercury is still opposing Jupiter in Aries. We’re still talking out, defining, negotiating, and considering fairness and justness with the important people in our lives. I am thinking that this aspect is serving all the yod business earlier this week. Something between us all has to be worked out.

Sunday September 4th

Sagittarius Moon Square Pisces Neptune @ 24 degrees

Last day of Venus in Leo 29


Ahhh Sunday. Venus leaves Leo after today. How was your connecting power during Venus in Leo season? Is there something you discovered about your the way you connect, your resources, and your preferences this season? All of these things may look a little more humble in Virgo, and a little more hardworking rather than extravagant and flashy.


This mutable square between expansive Sagittarius Moon, and Neptune Pisces caps off the week with a big beautiful mysterious question mark. I think we will have learned so much about ourselves, and expanded. I often find expansion more uncomfortable than contraction. Yet Sagittarius wants to see new things, go new places, explore new cultures, be more in general. Pisces Neptune loves Sagittarius’s lack of boundaries and yet this is a square. Sagittarius is a focused arrow going through the sky, Pisces is a holographic bullseye/ an optical illusion. There’s smoke and mirrors today, flirtation and glamour, perhaps secrets and lies. Steamy nights, big ideas, big talking, and big stories abound. Dream big. But don’t bet the farm on whatever you hear tonight.


There’s potential discomfort in all this water and fire alchemy, but not to worry, Virgo season loves to get us back to the brass tacks. There is an earthly connection here for you, not just in Virgo season, but always. Grounding in the earth, wherever you may live, could be the antidote to a wild week.
