The temptation is strong to describe this week as quiet. However, in retrospect, thinking Mercury coming home to versatile and chatty Gemini is not exactly what most would consider subtle. Neither I suppose is the Full Moon in mysterious Scorpio next Sunday night. Nevertheless, there is a pervasive feeling of stillness within – the kind that supports the planting and germination of new ideas and seeds, the energy of pregnancy, or maybe just pregnant pauses. The energy is quiet because it is working behind the scenes, because it has the potential of being profound.
Mercury’s entry into its home sign of Gemini on Thursday evening is the beginning of a super long transit that extends through the 8th of July. (I can hear the Gemini twins cheering; the Virgos are taking a wait and see approach.) A retrograde between May 18th and June 11th assures that Mercury will spend a nice long time in this flexible, chatty air sign. (Has the cheering subsided?) Because Gemini is a mutable, changeable energy, there will no doubt be some surprises in store. Mercury in Gemini likes to gather information and experiences. There will be time for evaluation later! Hold onto your hats – cognitive, verbal and intuitive energy is about to take flight. During this cycle expect that we will find new ways of doing things and will explore creative and novel ways to procure necessary resources.
The Full Moon in Scorpio on Sunday night brings together the power of the Sun in earthy Taurus with the depth and psychological complexity of the receptive Moon in Scorpio. We may feel vulnerable as we face our fears; however there is untapped power here that is about to be accessed. The restored flow of pure intuition, inspiration, and energy, more than makes up for any temporary discomfort we may feel.
Jupiter in Leo, squares both the Sun and Moon helping us crack open hidden places in our psyches. The Jupiter in Leo cycle which will end this coming August, has been all about finding our authentic voice and our self-expression. This Full Moon helps make sure we’re not leaving anything ‘on the shelf’. The process is almost guaranteed to be transformational as Pluto the eliminator and planet of regeneration, supports this coming together of the Sun and Moon.
The Full Moon activates the energy of the fixed signs – Taurus, Leo and Scorpio. Although there are no planets in the 4th fixed sign, Aquarius, those of you with Aquarian planets should take note as the energy of this potent T-Square (Sun, Jupiter, and Moon) is likely to discharge somewhere in the visionary Aquarian direction! Change doesn’t come easy, but it’s worthwhile. Adherence to the familiar and traditional is re-evaluated in order to reinforce foundations and productivity. Security is reviewed in light of potential risks and benefits; the familiar verses the new, simplicity verses complexity, they are all on the table.
This Full Moon is a light in the darkness for those willing to challenge their security and explore their fears. We all do it in one way or another…eventually. Even if we suspect the answers were within us all along, the journey is just as important as the destination. The Full Moon in Scorpio reminds us there are no short cuts to enlightenment. Dive deep, work through the process, and be rewarded.
Until next week, let go and wear loose clothes.

MOON in LEO / VIRGO
Moon Void of Course 7:12 am (PDT) – 6:07 pm
A relatively quiet week starts off with a quiet day. The Moon is in usually gregarious and self-expressive Leo, but this one is in a void-of-course pattern through the early morning until this evening when the Moon enters private Virgo. After picking a small fight with Mercury in early morning, the Moon makes no connections to other planets which could indicate we either are not in a mood to collaborate or socialize, or maybe we are just feeling moody or introspective. We might be feeling more vulnerable than usual or super sensitive about the way others perceive us.
Something to think about today: the connection between wanting to play it safe and wanting to be authentically ourselves, warts and all. There is nothing wrong with wearing a mask or putting our best foot forward. Wisdom lies in understanding when and why we attempt to change ourselves in an attempt to be more presentable, lovable, or respected. Think also about the way we consciously or unconsciously influence other people’s behaviors by rewarding some actions and attitudes and discouraging others. We do it all the time! The purpose is not to judge the behavior, but simply to observe ourselves in the process.
Daily Muse: Don't be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
MOON in VIRGO
The Moon in practical and analytical Virgo today can be all business, or at least it would like to think that it can be. Being ruled by Mercury, the planet of the mind, Virgo cherishes those times of privacy when we can lock ourselves away from the emotional demands of others and focus our energies on something that requires our full attention and concentration. This is a good day to do detailed work or tasks that require focus or analytical skills. Of course it’s also good for tackling physical jobs that benefit from the organizational prowess of Virgo – like cleaning out the fridge, re-organizing a filing system, or re-arranging the garage.
This energy can easily slip into criticalness of self and others. Fortunately a lunar connection to compassionate Neptune in Pisces might serve to distract our minds from finding fault and rather finding our imagination and flexibility. Keep in mind the power of encouragement over the disempowerment of criticism.
Daily Muse: Victory has a hundred fathers and defeat is an orphan. (John F. Kennedy)

Even though the Virgo Moon may keep our focus on routine tasks and responsibilities today, the energy is anything but ordinary. A harmonizing connection between the Sun in Taurus and Neptune in psychic Pisces encourages imagination and creativity and clears the way for greater levels of intuition. This energy is fueled by a sparkling connection between Mars the planet of action with Neptune. Even seemingly ordinary actions can result in extraordinary outcomes. Obstinate problems give way to creative solutions.
Do you feel like you are being guided today by an unseen force, by a divine consciousness, or that you are channeling your higher self? You are! Look to your imagination and intuition today; and see yourself planting magical seeds. The results may not be immediately manifested, but we will see the fruits of our labor in the summer and early fall.
Daily Muse: We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all of the power we need inside ourselves already. (J.K. Rowling)
MOON in VIRGO/LIBRA
Moon Void of Course 5:23 am (PDT) – 7:03 am
Mercury enters Gemini 7:00 pm (PDT)
The mental and social qualities of the air signs are on stage today when the Moon enters charismatic Libra in early morning and Mercury the planet of thinking and communication comes home to Gemini. Lunar connections to Mercury and Saturn make it easy to combine business and pleasure as conversations can be both entertaining and productive. The Libra Moon is eager to make amends and is even conflict-avoidant. Need to network or build some emotional or social bridges? This is the day. It’s also great romantic energy as this Moon emphasizes the loving and partnership aspects of Libra more so than those of establishing equality or justice.
Mercury’s entry into its home sign of Gemini this evening, foretells a long transit – from today through the 8th of July. A retrograde between May 18th and June 11th assures that Mercury will spend a nice long time in this flexible, chatty air sign. Because Gemini is a mutable, changeable energy, there will no doubt be some surprises in store. Mercury in Gemini likes to gather information and experiences. There will be time for evaluation later! Hold onto your hats – cognitive, verbal and intuitive energy is about to take flight. During this cycle expect that we will find new ways of doing things and will find creative and novel ways to procure necessary resources.
Daily Muse: Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it. (Roald Dahl)

MOON in LIBRA
Like yesterday, the Moon in peace-loving Libra is focused on relationships, metaphorically bending over backwards to soothe ruffled feathers and perfuming the air with essential oils, setting the stage for love and intimacy. Reality might come crashing in to upset this romantic vision as the Moon squares off with transformational Pluto and opposes revolutionary Uranus.
This is simply our reminder to be more aware of our desires for relationship. Is our desire born of wanting to share love, or to avoid the fear of being alone? Collectively these aspects are warning us against choosing just any relationship or romantic liaison to avoid feeling different or left out. In the long run, it pays to be choosy! Some conflicts need to be addressed, not ignored. We may want to put our fingers in our ears and sing, ‘la-la-la, I can’t hear you’; but our rational minds and intuition will find a way to get through to us. You have heard of ear chakras, haven’t you! What are you hearing that you may not want to listen to?
‘Date night’ can still be salvaged this evening when Mercury in social and impartial Gemini makes a magical and enlightening connection to Jupiter. Allowing others greater levels of personal expression without judgment, and being open to new information and ideas puts everyone in a better mood. Although the energy this evening is romantic, it’s also a great time for any personal celebration with friends and family.
Daily Muse: The most confused you will ever get is when you try to convince your heart and spirit of something your mind knows is a lie. (Shannon L. Alder)

MOON in CANCER / LEO
Moon Void of Course 7:03 am (PDT) – 6:47 pm
The energy is likely to be edgy and high-strung today as Mercury in excitable Gemini makes an awkward connection to even more volatile Uranus in fiery Aries. The Moon in Libra would like to keep the peace; however, if you have been trying to hold something together by denying the obvious, the pieces may be ready to unravel. There is a possibility that a façade is about to come tumbling down. Truth is being revealed, whether we like it or not. We can certainly reach to our higher selves to find the most gracious and loving interpretation, but in simple terms, it may be time to ‘wake up and smell the coffee’. With the Moon entering perceptive Scorpio this evening, it will be better to turn on the light of awareness and unmask our monsters.
Daily Muse: You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today. (Abraham Lincoln)
MOON in SCORPIO
Full Moon 13 Scorpio 8:42 pm (PDT)
More truths come to light today as the Moon dives into Scorpio and moves closer to the Full Moon tonight. Encouraging us toward more integrity and honesty is Mercury the planet of communication in Gemini moving into a perfect opposition with Saturn in Sagittarius. The dynamic between Gemini and Sagittarius is always one of realizing more is not necessarily ‘more’, the essence of quality over quantity. More data does not necessarily mean better or more intelligible information. Subterfuge, smoke screens, fancy footsteps and artful distraction or misdirection will be pretty ineffectual today as Saturn demands we ‘cut the crap’ (so to speak) and tell the truth, at least to ourselves.
The Full Moon in Scorpio tonight harnesses the power of the Sun in earthy Taurus with the depth and psychological complexity of the receptive Moon in Scorpio. We may feel vulnerable as we face our fears, however the restored flow of pure intuition, inspiration and energy more than makes up for any temporary discomfort. Jupiter in Leo, squares both the Sun and Moon helping us crack open hidden places in our psyches. The process is almost guaranteed to be transformational as Pluto the eliminator and planet of regeneration, supports this coming together of the Sun and Moon. Even if we suspect the answers were within us all along, the journey is just as important as the destination. The Full Moon in Scorpio reminds us there are no short cuts to enlightenment.

Every now and then I ask myself, "Hmm, how did I get here?"
It's an interesting question to me, because time goes by quickly and before you know it, you’re a decade older than the last time you checked and 40 years older than you mentally feel.
I recently pondered this time-lapse effect and thought about the fact that life is an incredible journey, packed with so much that it blends seamlessly into a panorama of peaks and valleys, high and low tides and everything in between.
There are consistencies on our journey. There are people we've known for decades, some all our lives, who represent continuity of friendship and love. We may have ideals that haven't changed from our youth, or hopes, wishes and dreams that have guided our hearts, even through the toughest of times.
I've had a revolving door of philosophies, ideas and theories that have provided me with some of the richest intellectual experiences of my life. Some of these have left me feeling like an idiot for even pursuing them, but most have added to my worldview and some have left me awestruck.
Sometimes this path is bumpier than at other times. Often, the road is washed out completely and a new direction is necessary. We all have destinations that we'd rather not travel to and every single one of us has experienced moments that make us question the very reason for being here at all.
The answer isn't money and it isn't prestige.
Although I get great pleasure from seeking knowledge and experiencing the revelations that nature can provide us; I know that isn't the answer either.
It's actually all about love.
Love not only makes the world go round, but it can also make it seem like it has stopped spinning completely. Love may be the answer, but it's also the question.
We don't allow ourselves to love as often as we should. This is a sad fact and it hurts me to even write these words, but I believe them to be completely true.
Some of us fear love and others push it away for reasons that are often completely unknown to all parties involved. Some of us complicate love to the point where it's like a board game, complete with spinners, dice and probability charts. Some of us don't believe in love, while others of us believe in a version of it so specific, that it becomes impossible to recognize it when it stands right before us, its nose pressed against ours.
Most of us have loved someone who didn't love us back. The pain of this can be excruciating and the memory of it disturbing, but I don't think it should be that way. The capability to love someone else completely, honestly and unconditionally is its own reward, regardless of the eventual pain. We felt its burning ardor within us, even if they didn't and how sad is that for them?
There are so many different types of love, that it’s ridiculous to try to categorize them all, so I won’t, but there's absolutely no excuse for not loving in this world.
I believe in love and in loving.
I’ve followed my truth and had to let go of people I once loved dearly, because we’d changed. I also knew that Nature abhors a vacuum and that the void would be filled.
I've nursed wounds due to losses, but resolved to never stop loving due to a fear of pain.
I've found answers, only to lose them again and I've stumbled upon the greatest secrets that I could imagine.
Throughout it all, I followed my heart and my quest for love.
Do I have any regrets? Not one, not even a hint of one.
As long as you follow your true heart and let it guide you, you'll always have a point of navigation that leads you to your real life.
Every now and then I ask myself, "Hmm, how did I get here?” Simple, I followed my heart and I’m grateful I did.
Until next week, I wish you all peace and love.

For much of my life I looked outside of myself for a connection to the divine. I have always known there was something bigger than me, but only in the last few years have I truly realized that what I have been seeking outside of myself is actually just me, I am it, it is me.
My religion of birth taught me to seek divine counsel from the male authorities in my church. I was encouraged to pray to a “Heavenly Father” but was also taught that I was not really worthy to receive divine revelation for myself and would need an intermediary. I was encouraged to strive for perfection in my word and deed but at the same time taught that perfection was unattainable. Although I was inundated with these teachings there was a little voice in my head that told me just to trust myself, ask for my own guidance and question authority. I lived a kind of double life, going to church, following the rules, going through motions. But in my heart I knew that all I had to do was ask for myself and everything would be ok.
I remember once when I was about 10 years old, I was with my family at the Sand Dunes sledding. It was getting dark and cold, when we got into our pick-up to leave it would not start. This was long before cell phones and we were far away from anyone else. I could see the fear in my Dad’s eyes, knowing that we were in a dangerous situation. I looked up at the full moon, dropped to my knees and prayed. I asked that the pick-up start so we could get home safely. My Dad tried the pick-up again and it fired right up. I think my parents were shocked. I was pretty blasé about it. No big deal, just ask and everything will be ok, right? Thinking about this experience now I realize that I simply connected with the divine inside of myself and asked for a better outcome. I don’t believe that I prayed to something outside of myself, but connected with the divine in me.
I think that all belief systems are valid and whatever works for you is what you should do. But, if you are struggling with the idea that you have to look outside of yourself for guidance, support and connection. Try going within yourself, take a look around, and feel the divine in your own heart. You are it, it is you.
Program Note: Join me and my special guest, Mark Husson, on The 12news Show on Monday, April 27 at 7 am PST. We will be talking about the birth of the 12 Family!

“Oliver, I've been praying for a new job for some time now – and nothing! Am I doing something wrong?”
It's an interesting question which many ask especially when there are no results in sight for what is being prayed about. I personally don't think wrong is the right word as I don't believe you are doing anything wrong. Saying your affirmative prayer, and following the five steps, is a little different than reading a manual and working your way through it point by point until you've learned what you needed to learn and gotten out of it what you desired. An affirmative prayer is so much more fluid and intuitive and Spirit as we know works in mysterious ways. There could be many reason why you still don't have a new job, but one thing I would like you to do is to ask yourself how you would feel, once this new job is yours. When I say feel, I really mean 'feelings'. Will you feel happy, blissful, overjoyed, ecstatic? And when you find that feeling that is just right for you include it in the prayer and see how it then will unfold. Often time it isn't the thing itself we seek, but the feeling it'll give us once we have it.
“It is in this moment I open up my heart and I am ready to receive all my good. As the Universe is infinite, as Spirit is unlimited, so are my dreams and desires. I create with Spirit my perfect life now and it unfolds with ease, joy and grace. I feel thrilled, I feel over joyed as I know it is already mine. With a grateful heart I let this affirmative prayer go … And so it is!”
