Council of Elders Super Portal: Moon-Mars-Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto Conjunction

What a profound moment in human history. Along with most people I am just starting to take in the magnitude of what is happening on the earth. I can feel the collective psyche compelled to stop and breath and open to what is. 

As an astrologer, in times like these, I feel that I should try my best to share my ongoing dialogue with the sky with others who share my love for her. I've been publishing a series of videos on YouTube since the end of last year, trying to give my sense for the very rare and powerful alignments of 2020. In this latest video from this morning, I'm sharing my stream of consciousness as I observe this 5 planet configuration out under the sky for the first time this year.

All of this year we have three outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, in the same part of the sky within a ten degree range. For an alignment like this to be this precise, and to last for a full year, is extremely rare, only once-in-a-thousand years. In March and April, Mars joins these planets to form an incredibly powerful 4 planet alignment.

Incredibly Rare Political Super Portal: Astrology for March-April 2020

If you are looking for some astrological insight into our current US political dynamics, I recorded this the day after the Super Tuesday primary, and in it I look at a very rare planetary alignment that has clearly kicked in now. This alignment corresponds to the energies at play in the election as well as in other areas, like the coronavirus crisis that is now rapidly unfolding. I’m referring to the incredibly rare Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto triple conjunction that I’ve looked at in previous videos (check out my forecast series through the link below), and that extends into early next year. For the next six weeks, these three outer planets are joined by the planet Mars, forming an even more rare quadruple conjunction, and it is this energy that is on full display now. I use both astrological software and astronomical software to illustrate what is happening, as I discuss the energies and help you understand how to best work with them. There has never been more on the line than in this US presidential election, and I hope this video will help you navigate and maximize what is possible at this time. Blessings!

Trippy Portal Open for Exploration: Mercury-Neptune Conjunction 2/8-2/25

Hey Everyone: There’s a trippy portal open for exploration! Are you ready to take the red pill and slide down the rabbit hole? We are at the beginning of another Mercury-Neptune cycle of time. These two planets are in a long conjunction that is happening in two distinct phases. This first phase overlaps with a Mercury retrograde cycle (which can itself feel really trippy), and goes from February 8th to the 25th. Mercury goes retrograde from February 16th to March 9th, and so this makes for 4 weeks of super flowy mindstates. After Mercury goes direct it will eventually catch back up with Neptune and we will get another two weeks of the conjunction from March 26th to April 9th.

Mercury has to do with mindstates, curiosity, mental focus, and communication. Neptune has to do with spirituality, flow states, inspiration, the dissolution of boundaries and the water element. In this video I discuss a few of the possibilities for these two coming together. The setting for the video, by the ocean with the sounds of the waves, crows, and the foghorn in the distance, is great for the energy, with the water relaxing my mind and softening my voice. When I stopped to record this I had been walking for over 8 miles in 70 degree weather, and I was in a lovely flow state.

The Heart Chakra Portal of 2020 is Open.

We have moved into another portal, what I’m calling the Heart Chakra Portal of 2020. Some of you journeyed with me through the Heart Chakra Portal of 2019, and that portal really began a new phase of my approach to astrology. I started my course “Tarot and Flow” under that alignment, and it was an exploration of how the tools of astrology and tarot are ultimately self-love practices that are meant to help us open our hearts to receive loving messages of guidance.

At that time I started to bring more focus to the conjunction phases (when two or more planets come within a close range in the same part of the sky) of the planetary cycles of time. It is the conjunctions of the planets that represent the ending of one cycle of time, and the beginning of a new cycle of time. These moments are opportunities for the integration of the previous cycle and also for visioning, and setting intention for the new cycle. These times can bring a fresh start with regard to the qualities and themes associated with the two planets in conjunction. 

Some conjunctions happen often (like the conjunction of the Moon and the Sun each month at the New Moon), others happen yearly or bi-yearly (inner planet conjunctions) and others are much rarer, like our current Jupiter-Saturn conjunction which happens every 20 years. Other cycles of time begin even more rarely, like the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto conjunction that I’ve been exploring in recent videos and blog posts, which won’t come into another powerful alignment for more than a thousand years.

The Heart Chakra Portal is a conjunction of Venus and Neptune and it happens approximately once per year. The last time they conjoined was in late March/early April of 2019, and the next time will be late April/early May of 2021. Now is a moment to reflect on the time period since last April and consider how you’ve done with the themes of the Venus-Neptune combination. These themes are explored in my new video, and I hope you will check it out.
