Aquarius – “Us In Here” 2018

Tied-down, but spaced-out. Standing still but floating. Extra slowed but super sped-up. Sunken in, but protruding forward.

virgo moon release

Relax your head, your shoulders/neck, your heart, your solar plexus, and your root. Close your eyes, and suspend yourself in the abandon of attachment.

nebulous solidity

metamorphosis moon

Metamorphosis Moon – Full Moon in Capricorn July 8 at 9:07pm PST

Metamorphosis Moon, that’s what I call it. Moon dancing with Pluto, sends us into the realm of transformation. It’s inevitable and abrupt.


The Midpoint: Make Your Move – First Quarter Virgo Moon

We’re at the midpoint, between New Moon and Full Moon. The seemingly elusive space between intention and fulfillment. The moment in which we make our move.

Scorpio Full Moon

Scorpio Full Moon: You Are All I See May 10 2017 – Mermade Trove

Gemini Mars Verbal Aggression

Gemini Mars April 21 @3:32 AM

Grand Air Trine Inside Mystic Rectangle

My moon-sister messaged me this morning with a link to the ‘chart of the moment’, to share that a Mystic Rectangle was sitting on her natal Jupiter, Saturn, Sun and Chiron…

Astrotrove Cast 2/2/2017

If you follow mermade-trove on Instagram, you’ll have seen the post: Moon entered Taurus yesterday evening. She’s presently hovering around 9°, breaking away from sextile (60°) with dreamy, surreal Neptune. You’ll feel more real today as she moves in conversation with the Sun and Pluto.

Astrotrove Cast 1/23/2017

The Astro-trove Cast of the week lends itself to the mental process of forming ideas surrounding how…

Astro Don’t Lie

Astrology doesn’t lie, because it can’t lie! Astrology is not foretelling it’s forecasting. It’s about conditions.

We are More than our Sun Sign

We are more than just our Sun sign. We are every sign. How often are we asked: “What’s your sign?”

360° of You

A 360° wheel of possibility: Energy, Environment, Expression, Exchange. Our birth chart.

Astro Equation

The formula: [astrology]=[x+you]

3 Planet Return

Jupiter conjunct Jupiter, Venus conjunct Venus, and Mars conjunct Mars, simultaneously.

Migraines at the Equinox

Mercury just shifted direct last night at about 10:22pm PST. Today is the Fall/September Equinox.

Virgo Vibe

I am a 12H/1H double duty Virgo. I am Virgo behind the scenes and on stage. I feel that this is a strong point in my chart, and even trumps my natal Sagittarius Sun, and partially because that Sun is -in- the house of communication which is naturally ruled by Gemini/Mercury – my chart ruler.

Lunar Eclipse Prep 03/23/2016

The eclipse is going to be lighting up my 1H, conjunct my Virgo Ascendant, and my Jupiter-Saturn conjunction at 5° and 7° Libra, respectively. So this clearly puts the Sun and Mercury right on my descendant.

Immaterial 8H

I’m definitely not an 8th houser, but I seem to attract these types in my life.

Significant Uranus Events

Uranus can be a complete game-changer, whether you want it to or not. I went back over a period between 2009-2011 and jotted down some significant Uranus events in my own life.

Bowie Transits

I’ve been analyzing Bowie’s chart for the past week and all of his Uranian influence. Aqua ascendant, with ruler Uranus in the 4H Gemini (double duty) inconjunct his Sun and and Mars in his soul sector.

Mercury+Uranus Stimulation

Everything is so weird this week. Retro Mercury sextile natal Mercury/Uranus + Retro Jupiter (in my soul sector) also sextile natal Mercury/Uranus, square natal Neptune.

Social Orientation

I’m thinking about how I express social planets (because of sign orientation) in a personal way.

Urania Conjunct Mercury

I have (asteroid) Urania conjunct Mercury in my natal chart.

Origins and Elections: 10/11/2011 @10:06PM EST

Thinking of a more personal event to practice this on, and one in which I have the time stamp for accuracy.

Medical Astro

This is incredible. Looking to our own chart houses for illness and discovering where we may be lacking in an area of life that is causing the illness/dis-ease.

Tr. Moon conjunct Pluto.

Yesterday, Dreams. Intense. Art, expression … Dreams about dreams.

Simplicity is Beauty

Stripping back my birth chart to 1 degree orb.

My Personal 3H Vibe

My Scorpio ruled 3H – I get lost in thought a lot… its comforting though, I love being in my own mind/head-space/mental world.

Transiting: Venus, Mars, Jupiter conjunct Natal Moon

Do I want to spend the day researching, writing, taking notes, organizing myself mentally/digitally?

Tr. Venus sextile N. Venus

No time to sit and ponder the world away. Lots to do this morning.

Fragmented Self Scoping 09/29/2015

Sun, Mercury, True Node in Libra = air, balance, will, love, intelligence (relative to masculine/feminine energies), right values, perfect judgment.
