Super blood wolf moon Eclipse – AAAOOOOOOWWHHH!!!

Reading Time: 5 minutesWe have a busy astro week this week, including a gorgeous Full Moon Eclipse in Leo (exact times below). And with all the major planets in forward motion, not a Retrograde to be seen, there’s a definite surge of forward momentum at play.

Which is fantastic in these last two weeks before we plunge into the Chinese New Year of the Pig, known for its favourable outlook on prosperity, good luck, and happiness.

Astrology: Big dreams, ahoy!

Reading Time: 6 minutesNext week sees a fabulous ‘super blood wolf’ Full Moon. It’s a supermoon because it’s a Full Moon positioned at the moon’s closest point to earth (aka perigee), making it brighter than normal. It’s a blood moon because it’s a total lunar eclipse, which means the sunlight passing through our atmosphere appears to turn red. And the January Full Moon is also known as a Wolf Moon.

Astrology: Welcome to 2019 – at last!

Reading Time: 5 minutesIf you’ve been feeling like the New Year didn’t completely land on time, you’re right.

Yes, we’ve had all that lovely lead-up energy, support for dreaming and planning and getting clear and releasing the old.

But as you know, the stars don’t care a bean for human calendars, so it’s not surprising that sometimes, a new (Western, human) year starts when we’re mid-something-else astrologically.

This time around, the calendrical new year happened in the lead-up to a potent New Moon, just before the pre-new-moon energy of the Dark Moon – the day or two beforehand which is a time for resting, preparing, pausing.

Astrology: Full Speed Ahead in 2019, (or is it?)

Reading Time: 5 minutesIn these last few days of 2018, with Mars into Aries due to happen right on the turning point of the year, why not make the most of these two significant supporters for your future plans?

Let Jupiter’s energy fuel big daydreaming; listen to inner guidance for ideas about the path ahead.

Trust in the big dream.

Then let Saturn’s energy help move you plan out how to move forward one step at a time.

Keep their roles clear and separate.

Astrology: Getting the urge to make shit real? Good!

Reading Time: 4 minutesThink of this week as the point in the sea-goat journey that moves from sea to land. Concepts solidify into ideas and plans that you can begin to articulate clearly. You may not know every single detail just yet, but as you allow some things to come into focus, others are not far behind.

You’re at base camp on the beach, preparing for the mountain climb – and we know not to rush that preparation if we want the next bit to go well.

With those elements of  ‘anything is possible’ and ‘doing it MY way!’ at play, you can let them inspire the choices you make while you’re there on the beach, doing your prep for the mountain climb.

Leave me Alone, I’m Lonely, the Venus-Uranus dilemma – or is it?

Reading Time: 5 minutesOn 30 November, two of my favourite planets take up positions across the sky from each other, with Venus at 29 degrees of Libra (her own sign – more on that in a moment) and Uranus at 29 degrees of Aries (ruled by Mars, the lover of Venus). This is their third opposition transit since early September, as they’ve danced an astrological tango through the sky, thanks to their respective retrogrades.

When planets sit across the chart from each other in a 180-degree relationship, it’s a bit like two of King Arthur’s knights sitting across the roundtable from each other. They don’t share the same point of view at all, so they each bring their own vantage point for whatever’s going on in life. But they can see each other incredibly clearly, so it’s like an opportunity for each to offer insights on the other’s area of expertise.

That makes for some potential tension, but when you know how to use it, the tension can be a potent fuel for expansion and exploration.

My Boyfriend Cheated On Me and I’m More Curious than Angry

Reading Time: 4 minutesIf a long-term relationship and marriage is a goal of yours, I suggest you invest in the quality of raw, sometimes uncomfortable discussion about your desires: do you like flirting with your barista? Do you and he want to send sexy pics to other consenting people or couples? Does he and you have freedom to look at sexually charged material on your own time, without having to report back to the other? My boyfriend and I feel comfortable bringing up our monogamish leanings; it helps us keep realistic about our very real desires, even if we don’t wish to act on them.

“Forever” is a lot longer than most people realize, especially when the new-relationship excitement is so strong; it seems like it will never fade. It’s time to reframe how we talk about our desires – and remember that being married by thirty could mean fifty years of time with your companion of choice.

I think my husband has a porn addiction. He thinks I’m crazy.

Reading Time: 2 minutesAny time spent doing one activity that diverts focus and time away from loved ones can be to the detriment of the relationships with those loved ones. Be it a video game addiction or porn watching. The fact that you’re feeling left in the dust is the problem, and when you talk to him about those feelings of your own inadequacy I’d like you to frame it around that, and not the porn itself. It’s great that he’s not lying about watching porn in the first place, but I understand why you might miss him. (Unless what he’s watching is leading to harmful behaviors, but that doesn’t sound like the case.)

My Partner Wants Me To Be More Vocal In Bed. As a Woman Who Usually Talks A Lot I’m Surprised this Makes me Uncomfortable.

Reading Time: 2 minutes It doesn’t sound silly at all – even experienced sex workers sometimes feel awkward when vocalizing sexy-speak that’s been requested from men.  Partner sex shouldn’t always feel awkward, but new things or kinky requests can be stomach-turning if you aren’t sure how to address them. It’s up to you to determine if you’d like to dabble in dirty talk for your partner’s pleasure, because it’s healthy to make efforts for your partner, as long as it doesn’t cause you serious discomfort. I appreciate him asking for what he likes, now it’s your opportunity to be advantageous
