    62. Forecast for May 20-26, 2024

    Happy Gemini season! But this is no "regular" Gemini season. It's a full blown Gemini party that will peak with 5 planets in Gemini June 5-7. Are you ready for these multitudes? Let's go back in time and track the narrative in the Gemini part of our charts to get some clues about where this is all going.

    61. Forecast for May 13-19, 2024

    A jam packed first quarter moon week. Almost too much to talk about. Dreamy. Hot! Lucky!? Too Much? Just Enough. We get into: what we talk about when we talk about "electional astrology" (check out Aleena's work!); Venus conjunct Uranus as reinvention; and the third decan of Taurus as an end times salve.

    The New Moon in Taurus is on the 7th. Think back to late July/early August 2022, what was pushing you so far out of your comfort zone? This New Moon allows you to clear space for what once felt impossible. Wild energy needs a strong container.

    59. Forecast for April 29 - May 5

    Venus enters Taurus! (yay) Mars enters Aries! (yay) Pluto stations retrograde! (yikes) — After a *rough* April, this week is a much needed return to basics, but these aren't the usual basics. This is 2024 basics. As a tarot reader in coastal Massachusetts once said to me, "Leave the past behind. There's nothing for you there."



    I'm teaching a class this week! What's your phase? at Earth/Body School. It's on Zoom. Join! It will be fun.



    Also! Books are open for May — and I'm doing a sale in honor of my Jupiter return — 20% off all readings and 15% off all gift cards through May 9. 3

    57. Forecast for April 15-21, 2024

    The long-awaited Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in Taurus is here. Sustainability and repair to the front. The vibe is: less self portrait collages and more communal recycling. It's a big week that begins to wrap up the stories we've been living through for the past several weeks while kicking off cycles that define years and decades to come :) Per usual, a very casual forecast.

Best weekly forecast

Do you want to know what’s going on in the universe but don’t have time to study the intricacies of astrology? This is a great podcast to dip in and get answers for the week ahead.

As if we don’t live under the same stars

As a sometimes-fan of astrology information, I was curious when a friend raved about ‘Good Fortune’. I tuned in for quite a few weeks, waiting to feel the ‘aha’ moment of connection or alignment, which never came.

Not all messages are meant for everybody. But as the gen0cide in P@lestine waged on, I was waiting for some acknowledgement or mention, which never seemed to come. I heard vagaries, allusions to global strife, but like many modern wellness practitioners, nothing direct - as if we don’t live under the same stars.

As other fave astrologers have been speaking about our place in the world, this podcast just fell short for me. Finally, on the 3/17 episode, there was a more direct mention - but it was in reference to the Twitter wars in which astrologers “past their Saturn Return” (over 30) are experiencing “personal attacks” in a conversation about how to appropriately politicize astrology.

As always, it was unclear where the host stands in the conversation, and I finally felt the aha moment - that this just isn’t the right source of commentary for me. I was waiting to know that I liked it, instead of trusting that I didn’t.

The low rating is not about the non-politicization of this particular astrology practice specifically, but the emphasis on whether or not different transits would make it a good night to party (not relevant to me, a Covid-cautious person), how some days “just aren’t right for working” (do other listeners not have jobs?), and other interpretations that didn’t align with with life under capitalism. If you want an escape, this may be a great option for you! & escapes are valid.

If you want astrology from folks who talk about the world and how it feels to be in it, I follow Chani Nicholas and Jonathan L. Dent.
