The Timing of Edward Snowden's Charges

by Madeline Gerwick

Madeline Gerwick AstrologerAccording to the Wall Street Journal, the US government filed charges against Edward Snowden, now known in the media as the Leaker, on June 14th. In the Eastern time zone, June 14th had a Time-Out until 12:27 PM that day. Of course they could also have filed the charges in the afternoon, during a Yellow Final Result. That would yield some results, but not meet their expectations.

Get Ready for the July Mercury Retrograde

by Madeline Gerwick

Madeline Gerwick AstrologerMercury retrograde (Red Communications) begins next Wednesday, June 26th and lasts through July 20th. Notice that the first day (June 26th) is also a Time-Out for most of the day, (depending on your time zone), making that day high risk for lots of activities. If you haven't already done so, get your computer system fully backed up (yes software too). Also if your car is making funny noises, get it fixed right away, before it breaks.

Take a Breather: Enjoy This Summer!

by Madeline Gerwick

Madeline Gerwick AstrologerEver since 2008, every equinox and solstice we've had has been full of transformation (ie permanent changes) and/or unexpected, even radical changes. This process reminded me of walking across a river on slippery, wet rocks. You never knew if your next step would be a stable one or if you would land in the river. In some cases, it even felt like various forms of wildlife might be hot on your heels as you contemplated your next move.

Joan Kiley Astrologer“And what is so rare as a day in June? Then, if ever, come perfect days” —from The Vision of Sir Launfal by James Russell Lowell. So, is that what we have to look forward to? “Perfect days” to bask in, during this lovely month of June? Well, yes…and no.

A Meditation on the Sign of Cancer

A Meditation on the Sign of Cancer

by Dena DeCastro

My natal Sun Sign is Cancer, and it has taken me many years to warm up to this fact. I blame the old astrology books from the mid-20th century, the ones I was always perusing as a kid in the 70's. Their descriptions of my sign didn't appeal to me at all. In many of these books, each sign was shortly described and then followed by a short list of "Positive Traits" and "Negative Traits." The "Positive" traits were mainly about how good Cancers are at taking care of others, and what great parents we are. Some of the unflattering keywords listed in the "Negative" section have never left my mind – "whiny, clingy, needy, moody, and sensitive." Ouch! Ironically, the fact that I still remember every word, and am still holding on to the hurt, is itself a Cancerian trait.

Gemini New Moon

by Mary Pat Lynch

Mary Pat Lynch AstrologerAhhh, Gemini time. Inboxes full. Messages coming in from left, right and center. Are they all what we wanted to hear? No, they are not. Do they all agree? No, they do not. But here they are!

Back at the Full Moon, we were offered a look at certainty––the Sagittarius Full Moon eclipse emphasized all the things we were sure of, suggesting maybe we look again.

May Astrocycles 2013

by Joan Kiley

Joan Kiley AstrologerThere’s no avoiding the Pluto/Uranus square during any part of the month of May! Even the Sun is trine Pluto at the start. We might want to live with a bit of denial and think oh yeah, Venusian earthy Taurus Sun conjunct Mars. We’ll feel good, enjoy ourselves, get a lot of work done. Step into the garden, plant some veggies.

The Eclipses of May

The Eclipses of May

by Dena DeCastro

This month features two eclipses: A Solar Eclipse in Taurus on May 9th, and a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius on May 24th. Eclipses usually happen in pairs – one on the New Moon and one on the Full Moon – 6 months apart. Once in a while, we have 3 eclipses in a row, each separated by two weeks. That is the case for this current eclipse season, as we just had the Full Moon / Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio on April 25th.

Lunar Eclipse on April 25th

by Madeline Gerwick

Madeline Gerwick AstrologerOn April 25th we have the first of three eclipses. This is the first of two Full Moon eclipses (the second one will be on May 24th). At Full Moons, things come to light. We see the full picture and many decisions are often made during these periods, precisely for this reason. We get all the facts and can finally decide. However, when we have a lunar eclipse, something is not seen, or something may be prevented or delayed.

This eclipse is at 5 degrees Scorpio and 46 minutes. If you have a planet or personal point between 1 – 9 degrees of Scorpio or 1- 9 degrees of Taurus, then you will definitely feel an impact from this eclipse. The primary meaning of this eclipse is related to releasing tension, particularly of a longstanding issue.
