TMAstrology for the June Full Moon: At this Full Moon Venus, goddess of love and money, is so close to the Sun we can't see her in the sky. No see=not there in astrology. So we're not feeling' the love and may be doing strange things with our money. (Note to self: don't). The Moon aligns with the sting of the Scorpion so we're feeling emotionally stressed and/or feeling the pain on behalf of a loved one. Mercury opposes Saturn, so we're stuck in traffic or stuck thinking about a problem; a decision needs to be made. Don't let it stress you out too much--Neptune, god of "it's all gonna dissolve anyway" is strong; plans without prospect are being made, or an unnecessary journey. Best way to use this Full Moon energy? Love thy neighbor as thyself; but choose thy neighborhood. At least temporarily.

Not a lot is going on astrologically on WEDNESDAY, June 15th. The Moon moves into the sign of Scorpio. We've probably heard "Whatever doesn't kill me makes me stronger," (either the Apaches or Klingons said it first, not sure which). When dealing with a Scorpio however, the phrase more accurately goes, "Whatever doesn't kill me had better start running."

TMAstrology for THURSDAY, June 9: If, like William Wallace (Mel Gibson) in this clip from "Braveheart," we have some fight-picking we wish to do, today's our day. Mercury opposes Mars, which is "sharp words." Can Senator Sanders, (#feelthemath) remain calm when talking with President Obama tomorrow? Once I'd have thought, no problem, but Sanders has long since gone into "Grumpy Old Men" mode. For the rest of us: stay away from reactive people, or, hey, seek them out. Depends on how much active entertainment we want. Drive carefully, watch for accidents, don't rush ... oh, and read carefully too. "Sharp words," can express literally. Hate those paper cuts ...

TMAstrology for Thursday, June 2nd: There's a conflict in the sky between a pattern that helps us get what we want, and one that places obstacles directly in the way of getting what we want. Which means we'll probably get only half of what we want. Order double portions and it should be just right. Even in astrology, there's always a work around.
Thursday, June 2nd Equine Astrology TOD: Differences between values and/or lifestyles are very apparent. We equestrians might just want to stick to the barn: the differences between our choices and others' will still be apparent, but it will be more along the lines of Appaloosa vs Arabian, or English vs Western--you know, understandable stuff.

TMAstrology for Wed, June 1st: Wed and to a lesser extent Thursday, we've an aspect that always makes me think of the author Barbara Ehrenreich. In her (fantastic) book "Bright Sided," which is about the negative side of positive thinking, she points out that "Delusion is always a mistake." We're more prone to deluding ourselves about something these next two days, or at the very least, not seeing a situation clearly. We'll come out best if we DON'T jump to conclusions, and if we DO focus on activities where something being other than what it seems is a good thing (art, music, meditation, toenail gazing). If you're like me, your house's windows desperately need cleaning and this pattern is good for restoring clarity there, too. (Off to find my my all-natural, organic, gluten free and non-GMO window cleaner ...)

Friday, May 27 Equine Astrology TOD: Sometimes as an astrologer you look at a chart and focus on all the convoluted details, and end up not able to answer the question--when it hits you, Basics also Count! Sun sign, Moon sign, Ascendent, all the ABC stuff first learned. Ditto with our horses ... it's easy to get caught up in advanced-type details when maybe just a review of foundational stuff is all that's needed. With Mars (action, goals) still hauling himself ass-backwards in the sky (through June), review is "in the stars," and assisted!
