Join me as I share about several upcoming astrological events: 
* Full Moon in 8º of Sagittarius (exact on May 29th, 2018 at 10:20am EDT)
* Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, is in 29 degrees of Taurus, an exalted degree
* Jupiter (the ruler of Sagittarius) is currently in Scorpio and still retrograde
* Saturn is part of a Yod (aka "Finger of God") involving the Sun in Gemini and the North Node in Leo
* Two Grand Trines: Fire and Water Grand Trines
* Full Moon makes some beautiful aspects to the Mars-South Node alignment in Aquarius

Where do you sometimes give your power away?
What might become possible if you focused 5% more on what you actually have influence over and let go of the rest? 
If you got really quiet, might you find you can connect to the flow of life? 

Do you have an Ascendant (or personal planets) in 6-10 degrees of Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces?

Dissolve Fears -- Astrology Forecast for May 21st - 27th , 2018

Last week was my Birthday, and I had an amazing day. Thanks so much for all the amazing Birthday wishes ;-) Uranus in Taurus in my 7th House feels pretty good so far! :-)

Before we get to this week's forecast, I have one quick announcement:
There is still time to take advantage of the Special Offer for the month of May: Uranus moved into Taurus last week. We went over this transit in more detail in the last Forecasting Forum -- if you want to know how Uranus's journey through Taurus until 2026 impacts you personally, feel free to get the 120 min. long webinar on the subject; for more info or to purchase, click here The fee for this is only $37, even though the webinar is 30 minutes longer than my usual webinars -- partly because we also cover Chiron's journey through Aries until 2027. You can also check out a brief excerpt of this webinar, here Enjoy ;-)

Here is the Special Offer for this month:sign up for Star or SuperStar Membership by May 31st (or upgrade from Universal to Star Membership via "My Account"), and get the above mentioned 2-hr. webinar for FREE! If you are already a Star or SuperStar Member c heck your email for the link to this webinar -- it was emailed to you on April 30th ;-)

This week's headline items: the first Quarter Moon in Virgo becomes exact on Monday late evening; and a long-lasting Jupiter/Neptune Trine becomes exact on Friday early morning. There will also be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday all day until 10:03pm EDT; Wednesday late morning (for 16 hours) and Friday afternoon (for 16.5 hours).

Monday (May 21st)the Moon remains in fun and attention-loving Leoand VoCuntil 10:03pm EDT. With the Moon in Leo, we may lack objectivity and struggle with backing down or compromising. We all love to be admired -- or at the very least acknowledged -- for our greatness :-)

So hand out some compliments -- let people know how proud you are of them, tell them how much you love them. Come from the heart in this and all other things... be honest and authentic, as best you can. Fun, games, and romance are also a big part of this energy. You might also enjoy spending time with little ones.

If there are no children around, how about getting in touch with your "inner child" -- it's definitely easier for the rest of today. Ask yourself: What am I most grateful for today? What would be heaps and heaps of fun? What would be so much fun, I could  let out a tiny squeak, just thinking of it?

Moon VoC until 10:03pm EDT: we are experiencing two quite different needs, pulling us in different directions: On the one hand, we feel a strong need to have fun and be creative or self-expressed.

On the other hand, we want to explore deep, authentic -- even intimate -- connections to ourselves or others. Do your best to use this intuitive time to make adjustments, slow things down a little, and find creative solutions that honor both drives.
As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Sunday late evening and Monday all day ahead of time.

Monday at 10:03pm EDTthe Moon enters detail-oriented, practical Virgo, where it will journey until Wednesday night/Thursday very early morning; turning our focus toward the practical and wholesome. We are generous with our time/services and we...

Uranus in Taurus until 2026 -- A New Vision for the Earth

On May 15th, 2018, Uranus will move into Taurus; it will journey through that sign for almost 8 years, until April 26th, 2026 -- with the exception of a retrograde period that will temporarily return it to Aries from Nov. 6th, 2018, to March 6th, 2019.

Whenever a planet moves into a new sign, it's a good idea to look back at the last time it made that transit -- to quote Mark Twain, "history doesn't repeat itself, but it rhymes" -- things obviously won't go exactly the same, but we can expect a certain resonance or similarity. Uranus is an outer planet that takes a long time to go around the Sun; the last time it moved through Taurus was between June 1934 and May 1942; before that, it was from July 1850 - March 1859.

Before we look at those periods of history, let’s talk briefly about the themes of Uranus in Taurus, so we can spot those “rhymes” if they occur. What can we expect when disruptive Uranus moves through earthy TaurusWell, for one thing, it would be wise to get comfortable with being uncomfortable and relaxed with being surprised.

If we were only allowed one word to describe what Uranus does, it would be "disruption". It's all about progress, change -- but not necessarily gradual, continuous amendment of the old -- this is more like breaking down and uprooting the "old" structures.

This is the planet of “vision”, and like all visionaries, it favors a revolution as the quickest way to realize the "ideal future state". It moves toward more freedom -- you could say the higher vibration of Uranus seeks freedom for all, while a lower vibration says "I need to be free to do what I want, and the hell with you".

Uranus listens to a higher calling -- a Divine Mind -- and can thus be detached from emotion and “human feeling”. Depending on the vision being pursued, this can be highly beneficial, or very dangerous.

Uranus urges everyone to wake up and smell the coffee, then join together to make coffee like the world has never seen and make sure that nobody ever has to drink mediocre coffee ever again.

Some Uranian keywords: Technology, Innovation, Discovery, Novelty, Ingenuity, Originality, and Astrology.

Uranus has two major modes: Reactive and Intuitive. Look over that list of keywords again and notice how those modes would play out for each one -- "reactive" would lead pretty much every time to harm, "intuitive" to life-giving breakthroughs.

As you can probably tell, Uranus celebrates originality and individuality; it loves the rebels and revolutionaries who rally against the "establishment" and their established thought -- or who at least put a new spin on old things. It can also go overboard and end up steering an erratic course onto the rocks.

So much for Uranus -- what of TaurusTaurus is connected to....

Of course, you are a unique individual, having a unique experience in this ever-unfolding universe -- so this major shift will affect you uniquely. To learn more, take a look (if you can) at the placement of the following in your birth chart:

* Uranus
* Aquarius
* Taurus

In addition to that birth chart research, look for the position and journey of your transiting Venus -- it will give you great insight into what you can expect from your personal (r)evolution, as Uranus proceeds on its almost 8-year transit through Taurus.

If you want to know how Uranus's journey through Taurus until 2026 impacts you personally, feel free to get the 120 min. long webinar on the subject; for more info or to purchase, click here

The fee for this is only $37, even though this webinar is 30 minutes longer than my usual Forecasting Forums -- partly because we also cover Chiron's journey through Aries until 2027. 

Special Offer: if you sign up for Star or SuperStar Membership by May 31st, you will get this 2-hour webinar for FREE ;-)

Those of us who have their Ascendent (or personal planets) in 0-2.5 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo or Aquarius will feel the impact of this first pass into Taurus  more than others. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aquarius (Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius). Also: Uranus was  also in Taurus 84 years ago. If you were born 1934-1942, you will have a Uranus Return within the next 8 years.  A new cycle begins on your individual journey towards creative Soul-Expression.

Have an amazing new exploration of your own values and connections to the Earth, your body, your resources, etc.
Love and blessings,

Restless & Impatient -- Astrology Forecast for May 14th - 20th, 2018

Personally, last week was all about getting myself back into shape -- physically, mentally and emotionally -- I'm getting ready for all the awesome change that's coming our way this month! Yahooooo! Bring it on! :-)

A quick announcement before we get started:
Because it is my birthday this week, I wanted to give something of value, and I thought with all the changes that are coming, a 30% discount on my 50-minute Coaching/Healing sessions would be a nice gift for everyone -- especially for those of you who are already doing monthly 25-minute Coaching/Healing sessions with me via the SuperStar Membership. I'm running this special during my birthday week only :-)

To take advantage of the special offer, click here and add one or more coaching sessions -- and when you get to your shopping cart, enter coupon code: BIRTHDAY_GIFT

PS: If you holding back because you can't do a session this week, don't worry -- you can schedule it anytime between now and Nov. 2018 -- and if you want to stock up at this super-low price, go ahead and use the code on multiple sessions ;-) Looking forward to connecting and supporting you!

This week's headline items: We have several planets changing signs this week -- Uranus (from Aries to Taurus, where it will journey for about 8 years), Mars (from Capricorn to Aquarius); Venus (from Gemini to Cancer) and last but not least, the Sun (from Taurus to Gemini).

In addition, the New Moon in Taurus becomes exact on Tuesday, and there will be four Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday late afternoon (for almost 15 minutes), Thursday afternoon (3.5 hours), Saturday late afternoon (2 hours), and Sunday late evening (22.5 hours).

Monday (May 14th)the Moon remains in Taurus all day. We love all physical comforts, prefer consistency, and would rather stick with what we know works well.

In other words: change is not our favorite thing and "rushing things" goes against our grain. What is our favorite thing until Tuesday late afternoon? It's probably, slowing down and getting in touch with whatever delights our senses ;-)

Monday early morning: The best way to handle the first few hours of Monday (if you're awake) is to slow down a little and focus on what's sitting right in front of you, that needs to be taken care of, so you can get to the next phase of accomplishment. 

Monday late afternoon, we have an opportunity to...
