The Astrology of 2023 & Beyond
Saturn will also make a major shift into Pisces from March 2023- Feb 2026. Joining up with Neptune who is there on an 15 year journey (2011-2026). Saturn will now be in the House of Spirit with its ruler and guardian. This could be a return to the ancient ways of wisdom, Cosmic Practices and Consciousness, Spiritual Law, and an understanding of our place in the Universe.
Jupiter will start the year in Aries but transition into Taurus in May to conjoin the North Node of Evolution in the final degrees before itself shifts into Aries. This is is a profound conjunction on May 30. Jupiter in Taurus is putting into practical use and action our Visions, Truths, Beliefs and Wisdom.
The Karmic Nodes of Fate will shift from Taurus & Scorpio to Aries & Libra in July and start a new 18.6 month journey of evolution for the collective and individuals. We will also experience 4 Eclipses, 4 Mercury Retrogrades, and be stepping into the year of the Water Rabbit on Jan 21. The Water Rabbit is related to Pisces, Neptune and Jupiter so this will give an extra boost to the Spiritual Awakening and Evolution.
The planet Uranus will be delivering lightning bolt calls to awaken. For those on the path our job will be to stand in our illumination and use our own path of our Soul’s Purpose to help others awaken too. Let this be a year of illumination.

Messages From The Cosmos ~ June 3 – July 2
“Nothing Is More Attractive Than A Soul On Fire!”
When a person grounds into their Soul and finds their passion, it is a marvelous and magical thing to behold. It is a Soul on Fire – Illuminated, Radiant, and shining form within. This month’s astrology is inviting you find your Soul’s Purpose (Dharma) and step into your inner-light. Be a Soul on Fire!
It all kicks off with the Sagittarius Full Moon on June 3. Sagittarius is a fire sign and represents the expression of our deep Spiritual and Philosophical beliefs. It is the archetype of one taking an epic journey and quest to find themselves- their True Self. When the moon is full, it is illuminated and shows us what is within ourselves. This includes our Emotions, Intuition, Memories, Needs for Nurturing, and our Inner Child. Part of the Lunar journey in Sagittarius is to learn how to guide our inner child to our Inner Adult, inner Parent and Elder within. When you are disturbed, unbalanced, and challenged do you know how to soothe yourself? Do you understand the meaning of what has upset you? Do you project onto others with blame and seek others to fix you? Or are you questing to to heal from within, find your inner parent and guide yourself from Spirit? This is the Sagittarius Full Moon. Become the one that is on Fire by choosing yourself.
Venus enters Leo and opposes Pluto in Aquarius on June 5. Venus in Leo is our Values meeting our passion. Venus opposite of Pluto it is a check-in from the the Soul to ensure that your values and desires are harmonized with your Dharma ~ Your Spiritual Purpose and Alignment with the Universe. The Leo-Aquarius Axis is the journey of the Personal Self to open one’s Heart and flow into the Higher Self.
June 11 is full of cosmic energies. Pluto is on a retrograde journey from May 1 – Oct 10 and enters back into Capricorn until Jan 21, 2024. It will sit at the intense 29° of Capricorn, revisiting themes around Karma & Dharma. On the Collective Level, this may re-open themes of the last 3 years or more around Societal Structures, Government, Institutions, Corporations, Religions, Policies, War, Elections and Power Structures. Things that were once hidden may emerge from the shadows for the ultimate purpose to transform and heal.
Mercury will trine Pluto as it enters its home sign of Gemini. Travel, Communication, Technology, and Polarities may all come to the forefront at this time. Communicate from the Soul perspective. Venus will square Jupiter as well. Are your personal values aligned with your Spiritual Quest to Truly know yourself?
June 17 is the Gemini New Moon and the start of Saturn Retrograde (June 17- Nov 4). The Gemini story is of two twin brother- a Human and an Immortal. Their journey is one of reconciliation and transcendence. Go out into the humming of Nature and seek wholeness, healing and release of your perceptions of separation. Saturn Retrograde in Pisces is taking a Spiritual Retreat for the summer to reconnect to your inner tiger and light.
On June 18, the Sun squares Neptune. The personal self is being challenged to find a Spiritual Path. It may seem murky to enter into the deep ocean waters of the beyond, but find your faith and trust to dive in and surrender to Spirit.
June 21 is the Summer Solstice and when the Sun moves into Cancer. This is one of the perennial events on the Wheel of Life. It marks the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and begins the waning of the light until the Winter Solstice on Dec 21. In the Celtic tradition this is when The Oak King surrenders his throne to the Holly King – who we may know as Santa Claus. Celebrate the Light of the Sun- which is another you, a Soul on Fire. In Lak E’ch.
On June 26, Mercury enters Cancer and Mars squares Uranus. The psychopomp journeys into the watery world of emotions and feelings. Is you inner Parent found yet? Seek to know self-soothing and taking a wider perspective beyond just your own self. Uranus can deliver unexpected revelations to your masculine warrior of Mars. A revelation is something we did not formally perceive that is now revealed. It would be best to receive this with an Open Heart- which is the highest expression of the Masculine.
Neptune goes Retrograde from June 30 – Dec 6. Both Neptune and Saturn are swimming backwards through the waters of Pisces. Again, it is a spiritual retreat and journey to know one’s Karma & Dharma. Ultimately this will bring us to the light of the Soul.
Finally, Venus squares Uranus on July 2. Very Similar to Mars square Uranus, but this time it it asks, “Are you in Love with yourself? Are you a Soul on Fire?” Be prepared to see new things. See you at the Capricorn Full Moon on July 3…
