I was working in the field of international education (and loving every minute of it) before I became a professional astrologer and a certified life coach. This was never something I planned; if you had told me seven years ago that I would be doing astrology and life coaching for a living, I would have thought you were crazy. I was on a completely different career path and expected to continue working in my field, maybe even relocating overseas to Morocco, or Jordan. Apparently, that was not where I was meant to be.
The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion. ~Albert Camus
The above quote is probably my favorite; at least, it continues to come up for me time and time again. It resonates so deeply because I am someone who lives unapologetically free. Seriously. I’ve got my Sun, in Leo, in my 11th House. Tell me to go right, and I will go left, and I will do so on purpose.
Events that transpired last week have inspired a rather dense reflection on life. I am more aware than ever before of the things that are out of my control. I am also more starkly aware that life changes in an instant. I am sure you, dear reader, can relate. So many people end up in places they never thought they’d be, while so many others attempt to manipulate life so that it works in their favor.
Change is inevitable, assumed in your Soul’s contract.
Our cosmic taskmaster wakes up this week. Saturn, the ringed planet, will station direct on Thursday, September 6th, reminding us of important Karmic lessons that remain unresolved.
Action planet Mars stations direct in the sign of Capricorn today, and in the coming weeks, it will finish its transit of Aquarius. The pace of life will soon pick up; what's been suspended in air, or kept on pause, will soon see forward momentum.
But first, we must get our bearings.
“I believe, and therefore everything is possible.” ~Unknown
Mercury stationed direct this week, and Mars will soon follow suit. This is the start to a long journey home, an invitation to come to yourself.

Eclipse season is over and it has been quite the whirlwind, as foretold. Important themes were emphasized with all three cosmic events: nurture your roots, surrender to your obstacles, and find another way to shine. I don’t doubt that we all will come out the other side of this period changed in some way. Going forward, we can collect ourselves. We can begin to apply lessons learned and insights revealed. We can start anew. Look to the month of September for significant gains.
The grand finale in a triage of eclipses happens this Saturday, August 11th, in the gregarious sign of Leo the Lion. This is it, folks. The showstopper! The main attraction! The suspenseful cliffhanger! This cosmic event finishes up what has been an eventful summer, and honey, you ain’t seen nothing yet!
I don’t mean to sound dramatic with the title of this blog, but “dramatic” is what this past week has been for many of my clients, friends, and me. Plus, I am a Leo, so, there's that.
A T-square in Astrology is an angle that involves multiple planets in the sky. It is formed when at least two planets oppose one another at 180-degrees, and then converge to form a 90-degree angle with a third planet (or set of planets). When all angles are connected, it looks like an equilateral triangle.
