MAY 30 - JUNE 5

It's something of a grand slam New Moon in Gemini on Saturday evening as planets line up in all four of the flexible and adaptable mutable signs. Give me a minute and I'll explain. If you look at a chart for this New Moon you will see an almost perfect square, or if you prefer, baseball diamond, and the bases are loaded. (Make sure you tune into the Mark Husson Show on Tuesday at 9 am Pacific – he's always good about posting the charts for New Moons.) The Sun and Moon are together with Venus in the chatty, verbal and inquisitive sign of Gemini. Jupiter and the North Node of the Moon are 90 degrees away in pragmatic Virgo. Opposing the Sun, Moon and Venus is disciplined Saturn; and last on the list are Neptune and the South Node in Pisces.

Visually it's eye-catching and psychologically it's dramatic. Grand Squares aka Grand Crosses include two oppositions and four squares. In this case there are even more, given the number of planets involved! Let's just say in many ways it's time to reset the board. That's probably what it feels like too – some things coming to completion and new things are being initiated. The excitement is high as we wait to see where the next pitch will take us.

Much of the tension created by these planetary alignments has been obvious for some time especially with Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune involved in a floating T-Square. But this week things come to a head, so to speak, as the Sun, Moon, and Venus fill in the missing piece of the puzzle representing Gemini.

Astrologer Raven Kaldera has dubbed the Gemini New Moon as ‘The Little Brother'. We really can't resist thinking of the character, Dennis the Menace, as we look at this energetic, verbal, and inquisitive energy. Perhaps a bit undirected, but intelligent, bright, and quick nevertheless! One of my favorite exchanges from the old Dennis cartoons is when Mr. Wilson asks Dennis why he asks so many questions. He replies, ‘I've only been around for 5 years. There's a lot of stuff I don't know.'

This attitude of innocence and ‘don't know' can be very useful to us especially in times of great change. When we admit we don't know all the answers, aren't sure of our next steps, and maybe even don't know what we want, we create an opening for guidance to enter. Instead of rigidly directing our lives, at this time we might be better off acting more like a sail boat, allowing both the emotional current and the intellectual /spiritual winds of change to at least inform our decisions. Although the energy of this New Moon can be abrupt and demanding (oppositions and squares) I believe we can successfully navigate by adopting the posture of a student. It may not be such a bad thing appointing Dennis the Menace as our temporary guru and guide!

The energy leading up to this New Moon is a little edgy, and the New Moon itself has the potential for initiating great change. Talking about our hopes and dreams sets them in motion. We get gain more clarity and more inspiration when we dare to share. Don't be afraid to look at the obstacles and challenges. This is the time to examine them carefully. Adopt ‘beginner's mind' and you'll have fun with this one.

Until next week, let go and wear loose clothes.

MAY 30

Moon Void of Course 4:10 pm (PDT) – 6:09 pm

As the Moon in empathetic Pisces kisses Chiron, we may be in touch with an old wound. But don't be quick to dismiss or deny any pain or feelings of vulnerability. The beginning of healing is acknowledging the feeling and then being willing to detach from previous interpretations and meanings. Feel the pain and then move past it to a healthier place. Feelings of helplessness can easily transform into feelings of empowerment with attention and awareness. If you are feeling overlooked or unappreciated, don't buy into other people's opinions of you or put too much importance on their behavior. Stay in integrity even if it means going against the crowd.

This evening the Moon marches into Aries with a renewed sense of purpose and courage. Just try not to go overboard! It's easy to recognize and speak the truth when Mercury aligns with self-renewing Pluto. We feel clear in our ideas and opinions even if they depart from tradition or what's popular with the masses. Pluto infuses the mind with clarity and disciplined intelligence. When we are clear, there is no limit to what we can accomplish. On the lighter side, this evening should be a good night for board or word games, puzzles, or entertainment that requires deciphering meanings or symbols. Might as well put that laser beam focus to some entertaining purpose!

Daily Muse: Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to reform (or pause and reflect). (Mark Twain)

MAY 31

Finding something constructive to do, or tackling a particularly challenging problem or issue is gratifying under an Aries Moon. Like a bored teenager we get into trouble, take unnecessary risks and are a bit mischievous when courageous Aries sets the emotional tone of the day. We need appropriate outlets to channel this impetuous and strong-willed energy.

Fortunately, positive lunar connections to Venus, the Sun, and Saturn throughout the day help us identify what is worthy of our efforts and provide motivation and clues for how to go after it. Even if it's completing small items on your to-do list, be productive. When the Moon squares Pluto in late evening we can feel critical and judgmental especially if we have not met our goals – realistic or not. Be gentle with yourself and others.

Daily Muse: The only time you fail is when you fall down and stay down. (Stephen Richards)

Moon Void of Course 8:42 am (PDT) – 7:46 pm

It may be the first day of a new month, but it's also the winding down of a lunar cycle (New Moon on Saturday) when we feel more like tying up loose ends rather than beginning something new. As the Sun squares Neptune the planet of dreams we may realize we need to dial back our expectations or accept a necessary delay before we get what we want. With the Moon also void of course from mid-morning until mid-evening, it might just be an indication we feel a bit confused as to our direction or next steps. It might also manifest as a friend, co-worker or family member needing or asking for our help. Maybe we have mixed feelings about jumping in. Examine your feelings and try to be clear about your motivations and intentions before committing yourself.

As the Moon eases out of Aries and into Taurus we may be thinking more about our responsibilities, legacies, what we are building, and what we plan to leave for the next generation. It may seem like a heavy topic for a typical Wednesday evening, but nevertheless, we might be more thoughtful with our everyday activities considering the impression and impact we leave with simple decisions like what kind of dish soap to use, whether or not to compost, and generally living a simpler or greener life.

Daily Muse: When you give yourself permission to communicate what matters to you in every situation you will have peace despite rejection or disapproval. Putting a voice to your soul helps you to let go of the negative energy of fear and regret. (Shannon L. Alder)


The Moon in Taurus would prefer that everything in life be simple and straightforward, but sometimes they are not. As Venus the planet of love and money squares Neptune, the potential for romantic misunderstandings increases and financial mishaps abound when we persist in living in a dream world instead of reading the real omens all around. Opportunities seem to dry up and resources may be scarce as the Sun opposes Saturn the planet of limitation, delays, and restrictions. But wait! Saturn is also the planet of structured manifestation and Neptune is the planet of imagination.

This takes us full circle back to that somewhat inflexible Taurus Moon that insists on simplicity. In some ways, the Moon is right. However, the simple solution is probably not the one we think it is. We will have to step outside the box, and use both imagination and discipline to look for new resources and answers. The good news is they are there in abundance! We simply need to come at relationships and finances from a new and creative direction. There may be sacrifices and we may have to get our hands dirty. But heck, grounded Taurus certainly doesn't mind working hard as long as there is a plan and a reward at the end.

Daily Muse: Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity. (Charles Mingus)


Moon Void of Course 4:02 pm (PDT) – 8:01 pm

We may feel love, appreciation, or money are in short supply on Friday when Venus the planet of love opposes Saturn the planet of limitation. But scarcity is not really the issue. More likely it's a lack of self-confidence and a tendency toward self criticism that's coloring our perception. We need to be more pro-active in monitoring and changing our self-talk.

It also wouldn't hurt to take a look at our attitudes towards love and money. Do we reinforce ideas about our personal unworthiness, that abundance is hard to come by, or relationships are hard work? Well the last one may be true! Remember we manifest life situations that match our beliefs. Today Saturn the planet of manifestation helps us look at our expectations. He's a competent teacher even if he is a bit crusty and somewhat of a curmudgeon.

Daily Muse: Daily Muse: With a few flowers in my garden, half a dozen pictures and some books, I live without envy. (Lope De Vega)

It's something of a grand slam New Moon in Gemini this evening as planets line up in all four of the flexible and adaptable mutable signs. Give me a minute and I'll explain. If you look at a chart for this New Moon you will see an almost perfect square, or if you prefer, baseball diamond and the bases are loaded.

Daily Muse: In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert's there are few. (Shunryu Suzuki)


Moon Void of Course 9:47 am (PDT) – 8:41 pm

It takes a while for the high octane energy of the New Moon last night to dissipate; and the Moon's alignment with firecracker Uranus in Aries keeps the mental wheels churning again today. It's a good time for an adventure or taking a small risk to broaden our horizons. Like let's say trying the chicken waffles at the trendy downtown bistro?

As day turns into evening, the quirky Gemini Moon gets tucked into home and family as it slides willingly into nurturing Cancer. We find comfort in traditional and familiar activities, people, and surroundings.

Daily Muse: One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time. (Andre Gide)

Out Of Mo's Mind
by Mo Abdelbaki

Summer is upon us, giving us longer days and sunny opportunities to enjoy nature in all its loveliness. It's bound to be a hot season, both in temperature and in the world we live.

We're about to embark on an interesting journey, culturally and socially. There's a lot of division around us. In fact, it seems that there's even division within divisions. People are disagreeing with each other more than I've ever noticed and I've lived through some pretty contentious times. There are factions inside of factions, with splinter groups within factionalized factions, sprouting new factions. It reminds me of a dysfunctional fractal image.

This is a time of immense change. The theme of my radio show last week was the dissolving of systems and things, based on the Hermetic concept of Solve Et Coagula, the process of reduction and then rebuilding. Last week focused on the dissolve side of things, including analysis, tearing down, reducing to the smallest possible parts and gathering knowledge during the process. This Monday I'll focus on the rebuilding of it all, the solution to problems. This process is natural, ongoing and filled with excitement. When it happens in the world around us, we have a tendency to latch onto wide-eyed hope, or slide into dread and fear. Both reactions are generally unrealistic.

A large part of our society is mesmerized by a vision of change leading to a new era of prosperity, security and a new way of looking at the world, while tearing down the old model. The other side of that coin is viewing the exact same circumstance with skepticism, fear and loathing, but also hoping to tear down the old model. The curiosity is in the fact that we all want the same thing, ultimately.

I vividly remember the summer of 1968. It was a mess. Some pundits have predicted that this summer may be equally as turbulent, but I'm holding out hope that this is a season of rebuilding and not of simple reactions to the dismantling of the status quo. Yes, I think things are changing. I don't see any problem with that. I embrace change. It does us good, it keeps us from stagnation and it certainly hasn't been boring around here lately.

This is a time of the dissolution of certain aspects of what we are as a culture. We're looking deeply into issues that were part of the catabolic movement of the 60s, one that brought awareness of civil rights, human dignity, social consciousness, equality for all without exceptions, and hope for a world of peace. We've recently torn down some old structures and are once again looking deeply into our soul and heart, only to find that many of the sicknesses of the past still thrive within us. We're seeing clearly what has changed, what hasn't and we're contemplating where we want to stand. As long as we decide on a place to firmly ground ourselves, we won't be swept away with any mob.

Look for omens of change. Don't allow yourself to be dragged into hyperbole or fear mongering. There's more to life then action, reaction and reflexive thinking. Because of what we study, we have the opportunity to use oracles of many kinds. Run an astrological chart. Pull out your cards. Cast an I Ching Hexagram. Grab a Rune or two, or better yet, toss them all out and see what comes to you. It should ease your mind. It certainly does mine.

We've been blessed with a belief system that allows us to stay even and solid minded through almost anything that comes our way. Utilize that blessing and the summer will be one to fondly remember.

I'm hoping that wherever you are, it's a beautiful day and you'll be able to take advantage of it by getting a little sun and welcoming the warmth that beckons us to our lives every day.

Until next week, I wish you all peace and love.

Taking the Time

In my work as a professional Psychic and spiritual counselor I have noticed a trend lately. So many of my clients are striving constantly for growth, change and continuous self-improvement. I am all for the good work and happy to support, but want to suggest one edit to the constancy of striving for change. We need time to adjust to change, to grow into our new selves, to recover from the upheaval that growth can bring into our lives. I offer you 5 ways to allow for adjustment and rejuvenation while walking the spiritual path.

1. We are connected to the earth, the seasons and the tides just like all living things. Our planet gives us beautiful cycles of growth and then rest and renewal each day. Trust the cycles. Sleep when it is dark and work when it is light. Follow the energy of the seasons, Spring is a time of renewal, summer is a time of action and growth, fall is a time to reap the rewards of our hard work and and winter is a time to rest, go within, and prepare for the spring.

2. All change, even the good kind, causes stress and requires time for adjustment. Work at changing only one thing at a time in your life. Set priorities and time lines and follow them. Recognize that your body and mind require time to adjust to new experiences, give yourself breaks between times of change to heal and recover.

3. When you feel like changing everything, change one thing. Give yourself time to adjust and then re-evaluate. Often when we feel dissatisfied with everything we just need to change one thing and watch the effect that one change has in every area of our lives.

4. There is nothing wrong with you, you are great, right now, this very moment. We get caught up in this idea of constant growth and self-improvement and forget to appreciate who we are, where we have come from and the growth we have already made. Take a break from striving for more and really appreciate who on you are right now.

5. Trust the process. Growth and change take time. Allow things to play out naturally. Don't push and recognize barriers as a message that you need to change direction. Divine timing is always at work in our lives, follow the synchronicities, don't force anything.

Much love,

Class note: All of my recorded classes are available here!

Oliver's Weekly Affirmative Prayer
Advisor Oliver
by Oliver

Oliver, how can I make the object of my affection fall in love with me?

I guess the short answer is you can't, but to elaborate I seriously believe you don't want to. You can't make anyone do something they are not ready to do and there is a real reason you are not together and that reason can be many different ones, all which I believe truly serve you. I believe the best you can do is just be yourself and love yourself no matter how cliché that might sound and in doing and being so you are allowing for a certain energy flow, which who knows, will bring the two of you together. You are not being denied anything, although it may feel that way, however as I see it you are being given the opportunity to consciously be aware of what you truly desire so you can set about to create it without specifically pulling a certain someone in. If you allow room for a little mystery and have faith, the object of your affection may be someone far better than anyone you could ever have dreamed up.

"I breathe, live and exist within the eternal light force of Spirit. I am always divinely guided to everything which serves me best and in knowing this truth I now relax and allow my journey to unfold with ease, joy and grace. I am grateful … And so it is!"

Carolyn'-s Art Picture

Naked man on landing. Ship in far distance falling over waterfall. In this case the man has chosen to jump ship because of this foreseen catastrophe, and just in the nick of time! He will start his life from scratch in a new world. It may be you need to start something completely different in your life, or perhaps to give your life some extra pizzaz. Things may seem a bit surreal. Take it easy, let new adventures fall easily into place instead of trying to force the change. The world is your palette, color it with the brilliance of your best imagination.
