Week of April 29th-May 5th
“Try to accomplish everything without doing anything”
some Taoist sage
Monday: Moon in Capricorn
The week begins in front of a mountain of tasks to be done. Feeling it through this Capricorn mOOn, a seriousness carries through our entire process. This is good. And in the deeper layers of our Collective Psyche, Mars opposes Saturn, bringing about copious amounts of frustration, impatience, and feelings of being powerless. Pay no heed, keep moving forward. Sweat till you have no more. Get sore. Recover. And, of course, tell stories about it. The moON also harmonizes with Sun and Mars today, giving an extra boost to our Will’s aim.
Week of the 11th–17th
“Isn’t it a pity, now, isn’t it a shame. How we break each other’s hearts and cause each other pain. How we take each other’s love, without thinking anymore. Forgetting to give back, isn’t it a pity”
Monday: Moon in Pisces
Do you like what you see when you look in the mirror? How about in the mirror of your Mind? These are important questions to ask as the Moon drifts through Pisces, passing over Mercury, Mars, and Chiron. With Mercury we will be shown aspects of our thinking that has been caught in the riptide and left us naive in our thoughts; with Mars, we may feel how our energies have been squandered as of late, needing to be recalibrated and pointed in a more effective direction; and with Chiron, hopefully we will receive an important teaching as to how we can heal and reawaken ourselves to the wholeness of our being. Beneath all of these subtle lunar triggers, Venus squares Saturn today. The magnifying glass is pointed straight into our core values and we are asked by the Lord of Karma (Saturn), “Are you focusing on what you have or on what you don’t?” If this question relates to Love, ask yourself, “Am I receiving adequate amounts of love and affection from my partner?” If not, why not. Solve the riddle of this square today. Redirect your love if need be.

In this show I explore the stars with Austin Coppock. He is a wonderfully articulate Astrologer with an encyclopedic well of information which comes through in the most amazingly tangential of ways. We look at the Aquarian New Moon on Sunday, the upcoming Mercury retrograde cycle, and the watery themes of 2013. Hope you enjoy the show.

Monday: Moon in Leo
This week starts off feeling like a caged Lion. Unable to experience the freedom we need to play, to roam, and to roar in the face of our opponents, we may find ourselves pacing back and forth, ruminating in our cyclic emotions. This is the Leo moON squaring off with both Saturn and Venus. It is ancient emotional conditioning holding us back from expressing our true hearts desire. We must remember this. What is it that is trying to leap and roll around inside. As the day progresses, we are assisted by Jupiter (via sextile), opening up channels of light showing us a better way out of Saturns dredges. The fiery MOon also harmonizes with the Sagittarius Sun, opening up a highway of energy in the center of our being, showing a Path out of this madness.
“Those who have not passed through the Inferno of their passions have truly not overcome them.”
…are you afraid of being engulfed by your passions?…….
Monday: Moon in Cancer
What did you dream about when you were a child? Do you even remember them? If so, how have they come true? Did you become the Superhero you had imagined? Or did you compromise for another dream? Another’s dream? Dreams can be a bit slippery in this way. LIke: How do dreams interact with 3 dimensional space? What is the point of the Dream? Today, as the mOon makes its Last Quarter square, moving into the internal and creative space of the Pilgrim, a feeling of subtle crisis around letting a character in our dream myth go. It’s time to let go of a particular contract you have made with someone–or something. With the Moon also squaring Venus and Juno, there is a feeling of a fire going out in an important area of our life. Don’t let it happen. Dream into it. Look for your answers in peculiar ways and you will find out exactly what you are meant to do.
Tuesday: moOn moves into Leo early morning
As the pregnant Cancer moON moves into Leo, a feeling of creative release is upon you. Don’t get hooked by the inferior thoughts of yourself or your slowly growing abilities (moON square Saturn), instead, know deeply the authenticity of your message, and the perfection of “your best” and how you share it (mOOn square Mercury). Share like a Lion. Play like one too. I have a deep doubt about whether Lions give a flying “f***” about what another Lion thinks when it is being ridiculous in its creative meanderings. Even if in your effort of sharing your story, your poem, your song it feels null and void, push it aside, and remember: at least the elves and gnomes are applauding you from space!.
Wednesday: Moon in Leo
We all make perfect mistakes. The Hierophant knows this. As he sits patiently in the Ground State, looking all stoic and slick (Saturn trine Neptune), he motions for words, yet none come. Your impatient ear perks in giddy excitement for a fresh transmission, yet still….nothing. Your awareness is pushed deeper inwards, acting the role of Pilgrim; You go deeper into your meditation, possessed by the inevitability of creative release. You know now, that all your mistakes were perfect. Saturn nods his head to Neptune, the Hierophant poofs!
Thursday: moOn moves into Virgo after lunch
All throughout the sea of the Collective Imagination, a swelling wave slowly rises, soon to break on the shores of Self, spreading inspired confusion across the land. With the Moon moving into Virgo, it will naturally oppose Neptune in early PIsces, creating a trippy mirroring effect in your world. It’s a feeling like you are waking in a dream, or perhaps a dream is trying to wake you. Within the doozy of this transit, the mOOn will also square the Nodes of the moon, perhaps bringing the slight feeling of dejavu in a handful of sweet spots throughout your day. If you feel them, it means you are heading the right direction. Keep following your intuition through this temporary maze of illusion.
Friday: Moon in Virgo
It all rolls into one and nothing comes for free,
There’s nothing you can hold, for very long.
And when you hear that song come crying like the wind,
It seems like all this life was just a dream.
Stella blue. stella blue.
In the wake of the Neptunian flood of emotion yesterday, the moOn finds Venus in the sky today. Love, and love again. If there were to be a universal compass for good decision making, it would have to be Love. Love and the Heart as the device. Luna also makes a lovely trine to Pluto also today, keeping a reminder up in our heads about not forgetting about the darkness. It’s great to focus on the Light, and even better not to forget the Dark. They are dancing together–always. Don’t ignore Pluto. It’s how monsters are made.
Saturday: MoOn moves into Libra early evening
No different than a plant, our bodies mimic nature. In the Fall, as light decreases North of the equator, leaves fall and energy is focused on the root of the plant. Roots–like kidneys– store energy for the organism, so the seasons can be insured for its future. Libra–the sign of both the Sun and Moon at the moment–rule over the kidneys. In this Balsamic phase of the mOon, it is vitally important to take care of your energy storage in your kidneys. Or as the Chinese call it: Jing. Kidney tapping, heating pads, back massages, inversions, drinking warm yin tonics etc etc….all a good idea. With the moON also squaring Vesta and Ceres, this kidney point is emphasized even more. Feed the agni flame, nourish the body and its tissues, and begin to rest. The last days of any lunation cycle relate to this. It feels like a dream as the veils get thinner and thinner.
Sunday: Moon in LIbra
We always think that by running away to some place new, will solve all our problems, Yet, if we are wizened by our years of youthful folly, we also know these problems haunt us like angry ghosts. With Mars now in Sagittarius for over a week, I’m sure you have already tasted this urge. Today though, he squares Chiron–the wise Centaur teacher of many a great Hero. It’s as if Chiron stands mildly frustrated in a setting Sun hilltop as his stubborn student (Mars in Sag) runs away, seeking the boon of his heart, with youthful folly once again. “Silly humans….” Chiron thinks, as darkness falls.
…and through the Inferno, on the other side of the raging flame, is the Palace of Wisdom. Ever present, always waiting….for the ripe Warrior Soul to discover……..
