The Astrology of 2024 & Beyond
“The Aquarian Age, We Are The Seed People”

2024 is a year of personal and global awakening. As a collective we have had enough time to process the experiences of the last 4 years and know our Hearts. A glimmer of the much talked about Aquarian Energy is here. But where exactly? Within each our Hearts. We are the seed people of this new dawning of consciousness. We will look at both the Harmonic and Disharmonic ways that could express on all levels.This is further illuminated as Pluto makes a permanent ingress into Aquarius until 2044– though there is one last short retrograde into Capricorn from September to November. This is a huge energetic shift and a major passage of time on the cosmic and Karmic Clock. We’ll look at what this may mean for our Planet.Jupiter and Uranus will have an expansive conjunction in Taurus during April, sending waves through the whole Planetary body, heart and mind.

In May, Jupiter enters Gemini, the sign of Technology and Messages from the Unconsciousness. It’s the first time since 2012, when the Mayan Calendar marked the initiation into a New Age of Being. The Mayan’s spoke much about the passage and quality of time from 2012-2025 ~we’ll have a look at this too.

The Karmic Nodes of Fate will hold steady in Aries & Libra giving us time to heal old relationships and cultivate a new way with the Masculine. This is supported at an Aries North Node Conjunction with Chiron in February- Opening Our Hearts.

We will also experience 4 Eclipses (April/May & Sep/Oct), 3 Mercury Retrogrades– though the year starts on the last day of a 2023 retrograde’s ending. And, we will be stepping into the year of the Wood Dragon on Feb 10. The Dragon is related to Aquarius and the Planet Uranus. So this will give an extra boost to the Spiritual Awakening and Evolution that Age of Aquarius is starting. Jai Ma!

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.

Learn about greater cycles of time that are now unfolding that are referenced by the Greeks, The Yogis, The Mayans, and the Lakota. We’ll also cover the quantum physics and evolutionary states of consciousness and how these transitional events will play out for each. We will share tools and practices that may be helpful to navigate these unfolding energies and times. And, we we will look at the astrology of 2024 through 2025 and beyond.


We talk and present the workshop in common language. There is no need for any prior knowledge of astrology to attend. All are welcome to watch 🙂

Astrology Report 
Mar 25 – Apr 23

“We’re Always Better When We’re Together”

This astrological month is packed with 2 eclipses- A Penumbral Lunar and A Total Solar-Mercury retrograde, almost 10 conjunctions, and one grand conjunction that happens once every 14 years. Conjunction energy is the unity, merging, and beginning of new cycle of time and consciousness. There are many opportunities to step through the portal and open up to renewal, growth, and harmony. All of these comings together reminded us go the Jack Johnson song Better Together which become our mantra, “We’re Always Better When We’re Together”

Mar 25 is the Libra Full Moon and Penumbral Lunar Eclipse. This eclipse is on the South Node of the moon where we are being asked to explore and heal wounds around our relationships. This includes relationships with other people, Mother Earth, Spirit, and your own self. Eclipses are portal energies that provide the opportunity cut old karmic threads. The South Node is a powerful point for self-reflection where we can both release our shadow but also free our Spirit and restore what may have once been lost.

Mercury goes retrograde from Apr 1-25 in the sign of Aries. This is a review of our Masculine consciousness for both the collective and individual. Balanced Masculine energy is Open Hearted, Seeks Ultimate Truth, and holds Balanced Perceptions. It uses Will Power to support the expression of one’s Dharma, and upholds and supports the Feminine. The retrograde will give an opportunity to review, and in this the case around communication, and our actions.

Venus and Neptune conjunct in Pisces on Apr 3. Venus is personal love and Neptune is transpersonal love. Pisces energy is Spirit, Imagination, Nature, Creation, and Unbounded Love. The conjunction is an opportunity to unite personal love with spiritual love. Manifest the Divine here on earth in all your relationships. The next day on Apr 4, Venus then slips into Aries for a journey through the masculine. Use your attention, intention, and intuition to support your truest values of the heart.

The Aries New Moon on April 8 is a Total Solar Eclipse at 12:17pm MST. It will be the last total solar eclipse over the United States until 2045. This is a powerful one as it is a conjunction of the Sun, Moon, Mercury Chiron and the North Node of the Moon. A syzygy of 5 celestial energies. North Node Eclipses open the portal towards where our collective consciousness wants to evolve- realized and healed Aries & Masculine energy. Chiron brings in the Wounded Healer aspect. It teaches us how to alchemize our wounds into our medicine, Dharma, and gift to give back to others. The portal is open from Mar 25 – Apr 8 and will set the tone for next 6 months.

Mars conjuncts Saturn in Pisces on Apr 10. Saturn is Karma & Dharma. This is a start of a new cycle for our masculine and yang energy to seek truth, express love, and create a more beautiful world. Trust your intuition and choose love as the place of being.

Sun and Retrograde Mercury conjunct in Aries on Apr 11 followed by Mercury and Chiron’s union on Apr 15. These energies were present at the total Solar Eclipse and just come into an exactness on these dates. This will continue the theme of unity and healing with the masculine energy.

The Sun moves into Taurus and Mercury conjuncts Venus on April 19. The Taurus and Venus energy illuminate Earth, Our Bodies, Values and Love. Time to communicate about these things for the day and for the month.

Apr 20 is Earth Day and also the major astrological event of Jupiter conjunct Uranus in Taurus. The last time these two energies came together was June 2010. This is a huge energy. Jupiter is great teacher, guru, spiritual guide, and wisdom seeker. Uranus is the awakening subconscious, lightning, advanced technology, revelation, and radical change. Big teachings are potential here for the planet. They will be taught through Taurus- Earth, Food, Body, Love, and Value systems. Will this be harmonious or chaotic? It all depends upon collective free will choices. The ultimate result will be for the the greater evolution of consciousness, and our intentions and choices matter on how it will play out.

Apr 21 is another Mercury/Chiron conjunction and the third one within a month. The final conjunction of a cycle is meant to help bring forth the wisdom and application of the teaching. What have you been learning around healing the masculine energy and your communications this past month? Remember it’s always better when we’re together. Choose love, choose peace, and choose harmony. The Scorpio Full Moon is Apr 23.
