The Sun & Uranus are snuggled up today, creating both excitement & instability. While some folks love the electricity & dynamic energy of ⚡️Uranus⚡️, for others it can be quite destabilising.
Since Uranus entered Taurus last year (May-Sept) we started to get an incling of that which was up for overhaul. On a personal level relationships, ideologies, employment, finances, family dynamics all started to reveal the deeper rifts of core dissatisfaction.
Now that this transit is in full swing we’re staring into the mirror of chaos; we don’t have control & the more we feed that lie, the more complicated we make the simplicity of life.
What we DO have when we allow chaos into our consciousness is creative freedom. Without desperately trying to control the winds that blow through our lives, we can remember that we are the magic ~ that it’s not something to be attained & possessed ~ & it’s not something we can manufacture, only work with.
As Uranus is often associated with ⚡️lightning⚡️ & Taurus takes on an Earthy -of the body – resourceful shape, we can re-learn what it is to live WITH nature, an integral part of it, co-collaborating. When we become conduits for the energy that’s BUSTING to come through, we step back into our 💚heart centre💚 & release the stress of trying to be, criticising & controlling.
Depending on how invested we are we might resist the changes, but Uranus ultimately wants to free us from that which inhibits. In earthy Taurus it’s calling us to WAKE UP while still in the body, to dare to meet life with fresh, open eyes & to fully dance the dance that we are!
Where does Taurus land in your chart?!
Life is just one continuous transition. There are no breaks & not one single destination. Even the ‘breaks’ are stations reorienting us from one point to the next…to the next…
There’s a lot of activity in the sky this week that can stir up lots of feels & frustrations. There’s also the desire to make sense of the most recent Mercury Retrograde cloud that passed through & hung heavy.
Being at the halfway point of this years Eclipse Seasons we have lights illuminating the road both back & forth. When / if the heavy feels land, take them as a sign post for things that are amidst transition ~ we need to create space for the new to come in by acknowledging & releasing the old.
Control is an illusion that keeps us in stuck states, so denying ourselves direct contact with our vulnerabilities & sensitivity can only create frustrating road blocks. There’s no hurry & nowhere to go!
What a Jupiter in Sagittarius gift; having my 2019 Horoscopes reach queerdo’s far and wide! I hope they continue to guide you throughout the year and remind you to offer yourself the compassion we so readily offer others.
Happy New Year, everyone!
Look around to see what is dead or dying. The Venus Retrograde cycle is no joke, and Scorpio does not suffer fools.
The Venus Rx cycle is a 40 day – 40 night dark night of the soul journey. It’s a fasting and a detox of our values, our relationships, the people and places we’ve poured our love and money and support into…and the stench of death and decay is wafting through.
What once brought us joy, vitality and purpose may now be a shell of its former self. We may also find, if we care to have that honest, penetrating look at ourselves, that we’ve outgrown parts of ourselves and moved on, but the situation remains; the vase is still holding up the dead flowers, but no amount of water is going to breathe life back into them.
Encompassed in this current Rx cycle is Neptune at the midpoint of its journey through Pisces, and Uranus at the midpoint of the Nodes. Midpoints are a peak of energy where we can look both back and forth; familiar enough with the energy at this stage that we know the pattern, but also aware that maturity beckons in our choices.

Working with the Astrology of 2018
With Venus taking us down to the Underworld in her pentacle creating retrograde cycle, and Mercury throwing us for a loop when it retrogrades in Sagittarius & Scorpio…while the Eclipse Cycle is changing signs…
…how do we keep going forward when the planets are taking us backwards?
What is this workshop about?
In this workshop, Dru will walk you through the astrological events of each month remaining in 2018.
It will offer you tools for how to work with the planets via understanding of where they are kicking up dust in your own chart.
We will break down the meaning of retrograde cycles, eclipse seasons, what it means to have both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, and what all this intense planetary activity is building toward.
Participants who sign up will each receive a workbook tailored to their own astrological chart.
Sign up to have your chart included in workshop examples.
Limited drop-in spots available.

The psychic airs are thick right now. Don’t deny your intuition. Don’t dilute your magic!
We’ve just slipped through the veil of the upcoming VENUS RETROGRADE cycle & the whispers are circling right in front of us! #scorpiorealness
With Saturn grinding to a hault this week, earthly reality can be challenging (to say the least), so keep those psychic – dream – messenger channels open to help guide the way.
We’re heading to the Underworld. Keep clear about what & who is going with you.
We’re all born into stories. This continuum of life that we jump into & out of shapes us in ways we’re not always aware of, nestling our personal stories within a larger framework.
While preparing these #saturnreturnreadings I listen to music from the year the person was born. Not only coz it’s a 💓🎵timeless era of music🎶💓, but because it’s a reflection of the story they were born into, on a collective level.
All these songs are Saturn Returning now. 🤔
What was Number 1 when you were born? If you’re unlucky like me it was Rod Stewart 😂 & he continues to haunt me throughout life! ⚔️
Virgo Moon is FULL today at 7.54am PST. Earth signs need to physically manifest…& Virgo can get stuck on a loop with thoughts.
prioritise ~ write lists ~ get your thoughts out of your head into physical reality ~ walk it out.
Virgo understands ritual likeno other sign. What do you do as a daily ritual for yourself?
