Monthly Summary

August: Harvest Your Success

Sun signs – Leo & Virgo

Seasonal energies: Origin of Prosperity with Lammas on the 1st

Energetic Element: Water

Overall meaning: Tons of opportunities are created in chaos. As the world tries to find its footing, take a step back and ask yourself, “Does this matter to me? What’s my part in it? Better yet, how can I create opportunity from this situation for me and my business.” Find ways to lead your family, team and clients through the chaos by using your power, resources and energies. There’s tremendous opportunity here. 

Big Star events: 8/4 – 8/28 Mercury Retrograde; 8/8 Lion’s Gate

Seasonal Insights

The seasonal dance is one of renewal and flow that can be used to harness in order to propel your success.

The seasonal dance begins by opening your full potential which expands until it becomes unwieldy. At which time, it’s necessary to optimize your influence through purposeful actions. Once you’ve harnessed this potential-filled purpose, you generate power, expanding your ability to make impact. Curating your powerful impact creates prosperity and then you’re ready to begin the cycle again.

During each season, you can leverage the zodiac energy, elemental force and earthly rhythms to boost your chances for success.

Season of Prosperity – August – November; Virgo, Libra, Scorpio

It’s the time of harvest to gain the bounty of your careful planning and powerful influence. Reap your rewards and let go of expectation to begin another cycle. Appreciation, reverence and reciprocity are the tenors of this season. When you put your attention onto the beginning, the middle and the end of the prosperous cycle, you open yourself to the universal flow of it.

The Season of Prosperity is the culmination of the entire seasonal cycle. As your potential becomes purposeful and you infuse power, your bounty is ready to be harvested. The outward aspects of power turn inward slightly as requires a balance between the inner and the outer. You’re still required to expend energy, but it’s a gathering versus a full outreach.

You connect, but it’s with like-minded community or already prosecuted connections. You know your place, you have a role that’s defined and within these parameters, you harvest to receive abundance for your value and efforts.

Seasonal Business Tips

Season of Prosperity leans into the water element to allow the bittersweet side of this harvest season. The bounty evident throughout the season gives way to the waning the energies as the season turns into the slower moving season of potential. Balancing between growth-oriented outreach and intentional connection is the key for your growth. This is a great time for retreats, conferences, workshops and trade shows.

Watch the video on how to use the seasonal energies.  


Big Star Events: (in chronological order)

August 4 – 28 Mercury retrograde in Virgo from 4° to Leo 21°

Any planet gets persnickety in Virgo. Mercury shifting here is never helpful for those who don’t keep good records with organized information at their fingertips or backups of important documents. Your routines are disrupted, your calendar negatively impacted and your connections temporarily tangled. Instead of getting frustrated, take extra time and care with those administrative details and with your relationships. Plan to check and recheck everything. Better yet, take some time off to relax and enjoy. Nothing is going to get done in these 3 weeks to move things forward anyway.

August 8th – Lion’s Gate

Lion’s Gate on August 8th is a powerful time for spiritual evolution, manifestation and growth. Whether through meditation, intention-setting or simply being open to cosmic energies, Lion’s Gate offers a unique opportunity to align with your soul mission to achieve the success you desire.

August 19th – Gemini Jupiter square Pisces Saturn

Summary: Your grand vision meets making difficult choices to achieve it

With Jupiter, he runs amuck until he meets up with Saturn, who’s the only one who has the ability to reign him in and keep him in alignment for any length of time. The Sun and Pluto also confronts Jupiter, but with those energies, Jupiter gets pushed and then bounces back. With Saturn, Jupiter is close enough to listen to Saturn’s sense of responsibility and respect his maturity. Jupiter likes to dance with Saturn because he can use Saturn’s fortitude to make dreams come true. 

From August 2024 through June 2025, Jupiter and Saturn confront each other and ask you, “What have you been doing since December 21, 2020 when we brought the New Era into your daily life?”

This Jupiter-Saturn cycle began with its connection at 0° Aquarius on December 21, 2020 opening the New Era portal for the future way of living and leading. This New Era signals the time for the divine feminine to equally position itself with the divine masculine. This is new and unfamiliar and you’ve spent the last few years trying to figure it out along with everyone else. Leadership, sales and money work differently now and it’s hard to determine how to connect the dots to make it work for you. 

Last year in June of 2023, Jupiter stimulated Saturn’s strengths to create sustainable growth. Did you plant seeds and help them germinate? Did you take advantage of this opportunity-creation energy to construct the pillars for your success?

Now, with Jupiter confronting Saturn for the next 11 months, you’re asked to be brave enough to note anything unstable in your life and business, then to get rid it. Where ever you have shaky ground, bad habits or overextension, you’ll reach a breaking point.

This initially feels uncertain and you’ll do anything to deny the truth of it. But when you buckle down and wrangle with your inner conflict, you’ll come to terms with the truth Jupiter and Saturn have laid at your feet.

When you shift your focus to withdraw from unhealthy routines, people and situations, you’ll fortify your foundation. This isn’t going to be easy or simple, but it’s worth it. Your continued success depends on it. 

For more information about the next 20 years, listen to this Podcast episode on Pluto in Aquarius and what it means for you. 


Week 1: See with Your Heart

This week is more about satisfaction than success. The stars want you to feel more than think this month and the first week presents opportunities to make adjustments for your satisfaction. You can find creative ways to break free from your constraints with the changes that come to you. With Mercury retrograde and the New Moon, the celestial power is in your favor when you let your heart lead.

NOTE: Your free Heart Drop meditation can be found in your August newsletter. Check your inbox. ❤

Week 2: Lion’s Gate 888

The big event the 2nd week is the Lion’s Gate portal on August 8th which offers a window into the New Era. This portal is supported by the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter with their exciting energies boosting your love, money and success. With Mercury retrograde, you have the opportunity to revisit, refine and adjust your leadership skills, style and image. When you do, Venus and Jupiter give you a blast of good luck.  

Lion’s Gate is a triple power this year, so I’m offering a special 3-hour workshop. For more information, click here.

Week 3: What a Mess

The stars give you lots of information, feedback and evidence from your soul so you can make adjustments for your path forward. But, yuck, this week feels heavy, confusing and stressful. It’s up and down, shocking and validating. The key is to keep your footing. 

Saturn’s at the center, confronting Mars and Jupiter. Then Uranus enters with chaos and upsetting news. Uranus knocks you off your center and Saturn puts a spotlight on everything that’s wrong.

Ugh. This makes for a difficult review of what you’ve done or more importantly, what you haven’t done to live your soul mission. This is a big deal. The best remedy? Ask yourself, “How am I wrong?” and you’ll find this week uncomfortable, yet stimulating and informative.

Week 4: Tough Love

Nagging, doubtful, worried – Hello Sun in Virgo. She’s such a taskmaster and when the Sun enters her sign, she puts everything that needs to be dealt with front and center in perfect view. Luckily, there’s a mixed bag of other star configurations that both relieve and amplify Virgo’s nagging ways. Your best bet? Find the silver lining and remember only love is real.

Mother Earth and the cosmos are incredibly loving, but it’s a tough love. You get a glimpse of what’s real and what’s fake as you’re pushed to make changes. Stay flexible. You’ll find the answers when you take a step back and see the big picture. 


The Moon phases help manifest things you want, celebrate things you have and get rid of things you no longer want. Here are the phases and what you should do:

  1. The New Moon is for setting your strategy.
  2. From the New to Full Moon, it’s the time to manifest, appreciate and create.
  3. The Full Moon is for taking stock in gratitude and refinement.
  4. From the Full to New Moon, it’s the time to celebrate, release and merge.

New Moon: Creative Solutions

Details: New Moon August 4th @ 7:14 am ET with the Sun & Moon in Leo @ 12°

This New Moon invites you to live authentically, being real and true to your soul. Your heart knows the answers and your soul guides your direction. Be observant about who and what is presenting themselves to you right now. These are supportive and helpful energies and you can easily find creative solutions to the obstacles standing in your way.

Full Moon: Sea of Red

Details: Sun in Leo and Moon in Aquarius August 19th at 2:28 pm ET @ 27°

Shocking news, topsy-turvy information and a reminder of your priorities based on the worldwide trauma of 2020. What’s truly important to you? What would you do to maintain your most valuable relationships, status and position or material things? These questions can either bring out the best or the worst in people.

Why is this happening? This is the New Era and the stars are pushing everyone to recognize there’s a new way of living and leading. For most, the only way they’ll accept change is to be pushed into it. So, hello chaos. This Full Moon is a glimpse of the fiery energies of 2025. The wake call is coming in waves with a big one on March 30, 2025.

Ask yourself, “What do I want to be true in 6 months? Who do I want to be? How will I live and love my soul?”

This is the New Era. There’s no stopping the increasingly big waves. There’s only the railing or the embrace of it. As always, you get to decide whether to react or respond.

Monthly Oracle Card: #32 Authority

Order your Intuition cards online

What is Authority? It’s a powerful force within you that holds you steady while you pursue your big dreams and live daily life. You have competence, clout and sovereignty.

You pivot when things go wrong to recover quickly and make the necessary adjustments. You also take responsibility for every aspect of your life without blaming, judging or rationalizing.

Standing fully in your authority is the most freeing energy. When you align with your soul mission, you make authority your super power.

Spirit Animal: Horse

Horse is power. As horse, you love your personal freedom above all else, you adore exploring and having adventures and are a natural leader. You are strong, loyal and confident.

Call on horse when you want to travel and explore, need more energy and strength or want to expand your spiritual practice. Horse is particularly helpful this month. Call on him for guidance and wisdom on how to proceed throughout the month and beyond.

Crystal: Orange Sapphire

Sapphire is about truth and wisdom. You know what’s true and desire to express yourself in the world. Orange sapphire is joyous and free. This stone makes connections and brings people together. This was the stone in February 2022. I wonder how it can helps in Ukraine’s plight.

Flower Essence: Hornbeam

With the hornbeam flower essence, you can move your mind and heal its mental fatigue. Even though August devises ways for you to lead with your heart, your mind needs a break from overstimulation. It’s like hitting the refresh button and with the onset of Virgo at the end of the month, your mind can use the break. 


Connecting to your intuition is the key to your success in the New Era. This is achieved by weaving the masculine strengths with the feminine energies.

For the masculine: Your masculine strengths are enhanced through your Sun sign.  The Sun can fill you at the core and is your guiding light. Your core is the anchor point and must be fortified to handle the edginess of the feminine remembrance of ancient wisdom.

For the feminine: Allowing the feminine wisdom to come to the fore and act as a guide and energetic force to pursue your soul mission is welcome in this New Era. Halleluiah. As such, learning how you enter your world, make choice and align with your intuition is measured by how you know, like and trust yourself.

Following my success-making Do You Know, Like and Trust Yourself ® methodology, tap into the energies of your Intuitive Success Signature for the best results this month.  If you haven’t taken the quiz yet, here’s the link.

Combining the remedies for your Sun sign with the tips for your Intuitive Success Signature boost your ability to navigate challenges and take advantage of positive influences.


Your Intuitive Success Signature helps you live your soul mission and measure how to connect to your intuition by knowing, liking and trusting yourself. The tips below help you navigate the month’s challenges and take advantage of positive cosmic forces.

Wise Strategist

Let your stillness show others the way. You can stand in your power and let people come to you. You won’t gain anything by chasing others down. In fact, this is a great time to set up a sales channel, kick it off and then take vacation. Let the marketplace simmer and stir.

Intuitive Visionary

Letting others see you in July hastens their desire to work with you this month. Repeat your actions with less inspiration and more innovation. Let your authority be apparent. Your typical fun and flowing messages don’t land, but your strong impactful ones do. Stand in the strong to make big impact.

Collaborative Explorer

Take the helm. Do soft and personal outreach to connect to those you know you can help. Keep your own business growth in focus while you lead everyone through the month. You’ve got this, but you don’t want to lose yourself or your goals while supporting others.

Ruling Warrior

Stay focused on your quiet power and your kind compassion. Tell stories of celebration about your clients. Tell your story. Host others on your stages to tell theirs. Being engaging makes you a great leader and the world needs great leaders.

Creative Superstar

If you gathered yourself during July, it’s now time to show up and show yourself to your audience. If you showed up in July, it’s also the time to go into other people’s audiences and share your qualities, offers and creations with others. You can exponentially grow your business when you show up.

Loving Alchemist

Making your results, celebratory client stories, testimonials and value proposition known to your groups, prospects and followers. Be clear in your value, offers and ways people can work with you. 


August is not a fan favorite, but the cosmos are speaking in earnest to align you with your soul mission. It’s time for the New Era. It’s the time of Aquarius who adores inclusion, democracy and equity as well as innovation and freedom.

December 2023: Embrace the Cosmic Cadence: December’s Astrological Blueprint for Slow and Steady Triumphs

Monthly Summary from the Annual Forecast

December: Slow and Steady 

Sun signs – Sagittarius & Capricorn

Stay on task and focus on your long-term goals. Supportive people and opportunistic situations are presented to you. Say YES when it’s in your lane. Say a distinctive NO when it’s not. This is important. This season calls for authenticity and integrity. That means being true to you, when you’re alone and when you’re out in the world. Doing the right thing, even when no one’s looking, creates wealth and success for you. Finding your stride isn’t easy at the end of the month.


Big Star Events: 
  • December 6th – Neptune takes off your rose-colored glasses
  • December 13th – Mercury plays tricks with your style and schedule
  • December 20th – Mars urges you to take big risks
  • December 21st – Reach for the peak of your potential on the Solstice
December Star Reading

You move into the last month of the year with feelings about the year as a whole. You can take stock of what you’ve accomplished and what you’ve left behind. Review your business dealings, your love life and your finances to determine where you stand against the goals you set at the beginning of the year.

Focus on pillars, milestones and intentions that include your personal accomplishments and the softer qualities you’ve gathered and any heaviness you’ve released. This is a holistic review.

Remember to be kind to yourself. This year has been razor sharp and even harsh to your dreams, standards and beliefs. The universe has done this to get you completely aligned with your soul mission. Fulfilling your soul destiny isn’t just about how you track against your goals and targets for your business. It’s also about love, life and joy. Include those tender moments and precious memories. Think in terms of a scrap book, not a strategic plan.

Once you’ve completed your review, put it all away and get serious about spending time with the people who matter to you. Look at your calendar and set time aside for silliness, surprise and delight. Be spontaneous and say YES to those who you adore, who you’ve been craving and who you love to celebrate.

Establishing your priorities at the outset sets you up for either an enjoyable, fun-filled and relaxing holiday season or a busy time-starved, disappointing one.

New Moon Sagittarius

Details: December 12 @ 6:32 pm ET at Sagittarius 20°

On the 12th, it’s just in time for a favorable New Moon in Sagittarius. You have an opening for excellent relationships, love and good fortune. The Moon is filled with opportunities, good news and support. It’s also the time to embrace the qualities of Sagittarius for adventures, philosophical simplicity and cultural exploration.

Mercury Retrograde

Details: December 13 – January 1, 2024 from Capricorn 8° – Sagittarius 22°

In short, there’s a different method to achieve your long-term goals by appreciating your achievements, taking stock of your credentials and fortifying your value and worth.

This is the only Mercury retrograde in 2023 that crosses signs from Capricorn into Sagittarius. As each zodiac sign rectifies the one before it, retrogrades flip this formula, letting Sagittarius relieve Capricorn, instead of the typical way. Sagittarius brings hope and optimism to the stoic “We’ve always done it this way” Capricorn. Sagittarius says YES when Capricorn can’t find a way to affirm. This is a great time to review your current strategy and find ways to adjust it, keeping the new way of leadership in mind. Let the masculine provide the strength at the core and the feminine to dance on the edges. Mercury heralds the new way during this retrograde period. Using it to your advantage clears your path. 

Note: Capricorns take heed from November 25th to January 20th. Sagittarius take note too. Also, other cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer and Libra, ask yourselves deep questions about the way you’ve always lead in your life and how you can adjust to a new way. For Taurus and Virgo Sun signs, once you’ve gotten the true sense of your leadership style, shine your light to help others.

Mars Out of Bounds

Details: December 20th, 2023 – January 23rd, 2024

You can act with bravery and courage, using your vitality to power you into your next project or adventure. Or you can act rashly, be too selfish or react defensively. The virus, rebellions and weather events are at an all-time high during this period.

With Mars in Sagittarius until January 4th, risks and adventures know no bounds. You will say yes to literally everything. The bill becomes due, so to speak, when Mars enters Capricorn on January 5th, questioning your position and status in the community.  Have you gone too far and risked too much? Maintaining composure while Mars is out of bounds in Sagittarius makes it so much easier when he transits into Capricorn.

Celebrate the Solstice

Details: Sun enters Capricorn December 21 @ 10:27 pm ET

Creativity anyone? The edges of the year bookend the most powerful and the highest potential energies. This solstice represents your highest potential. What are you choosing to do and how are you spending your time? Take note. What you energize, grows and what you ignore, dies. The powerful energy of the Solstice is great for diving deeply into your love, money and success. What’s your position in life? Your purpose? Your potential? Get creative in your desires. You’re a magnet to create the life you want to live. Attract the support and say YES to opportunities.

During the holidays, you vacillate between taking it easy and relaxing into the holiday season and rolling up your sleeves and finishing those pesky tasks that remain undone. There’s no reason you can’t do both. Create a tempo that works for you to recharge, to create memories and to get organized.

Full Moon – Capricorn & Cancer

Details: December 26 @ 7:33 pm ET Sun in Capricorn & Moon in Cancer at 4°

Your work-life balance gets a workout with your mind trying to determine what’s truly important to you. This isn’t the time for you to make assessments by yourself. Reach out to someone you trust when setting priorities and making decisions. It’s confusing right now and given the holidays, perhaps you can push off these big decisions until the new year.

Get flirty and fun for the New Year. The stars boost your desire to party at year’s end.


The oracle cards bring insight into what’s coming for the month. They give your mind something to focus on and remember as you go through the days and weeks. You can ponder the card or go into the guidance in the book when you need more than mental reminders.

The power of animal and crystal energy are easy to employ to help you create the success and satisfaction you desire. Spirit animals are always willing to assist. Simply call on the animal to bring it into focus and ponder its meaning.

For crystals, grab the crystal and put it on your desk, purse or kitchen table. You want to align with your success and this month’s stone helps you do that. 

For flower essences, put 3 drops into water 3 times a day and feel the gentle support for your body and emotions.

Intuition Oracle card: #37 Purpose

December, while a month of fun, celebration and love, is also a month to take stock and figure out how you want to recalibrate your decisions, priorities and habits to build the future you desire.

Step into your own path by taking a turn off the beaten path others have created. Your path is your own, and only yours. There is the requirement to carve out your original trail.

Be purposeful about your life’s path. Are you terrified, excited, both? When you’re on your rightful soul path, you’re both. Seek out someone who does this for a living and ask them about your true life purpose. It should be unique and make you excited and terrified at the same time.

Intuition cards online

Crystal: Rhodochrosite

Rhodochrosite is a stone of selfless love and compassion. It helps you feel loved and supported while still being appreciated. You can use this crystal when you want to learn how you’re in denial as it shows you the aspects of you that make you uncomfortable. You’re also able to release emotions and confront issues. As you do, rhodochrosite soothes emotional stress. 

This is one of my favorite stones of all time. She is deliciously supportive without being cloying.

Animal: Rabbit

Rabbit is brave. You are

– agile and adept at strategizing and planning. 

– optimistic, wise and artistic. 

– intelligent and have a lot of common sense.

Call on rabbit when you want to boost your creative energy, you want to have a baby or you need to act quickly to take advantage of a new opportunity. 

Flower essence: Beech

Beech is a beautiful, majestic and anciently wise tree and you can have a portion of this energy to help you feel love and tolerance for yourself and others. Think of the tree’s name without the spelling and you have the essence of this remedy.

When you feel critical of others, you’re most likely feeling insecure and judgmental. These actions tell your mind that you’re safe, although that’s patently untrue. The beech tree essence works with your third eye, so you see your life and rightful place in it with crystal clarity.

Weirdly as you push others away with your criticism, either said or unsaid, you create the exact opposite of what you truly desire. You care so much about what others think, you yearn longingly for acceptance and love. The more your longing grows, the more critical you become.

Beech flower essence is the perfect antidote to this cycle.

Bottom Line

Make a plan to incorporate business and pleasure. Your motto for December can be, “work hard and play hard.”

After work, it’s time to celebrate and enjoy yourself. Carve out time to get together with good friends, to reconnect with you and to strategize about the year ahead.

Get your business done and then play!

Thank you for reading and sharing with friends.

As always, wishing you joy,

🌟 Harnessing the Energy of Mercury Retrograde: 8 Powerful Business Tips 🌟

Hello Star Lovelies


Welcome to a new dimension of business strategy using powerful business tips


“Oh no, my computer has crashed.” 


“He hasn’t received any of my texts or emails.” 


“We need to reschedule this meeting and it’s been rescheduled more than once already.”


“My train/plane/bus is delayed – again!” 


Yes, this is the quintessential Mercury in retrograde period. When I tell people it’s happening, I hear gasps and groans. 


BUT, we can actually use Mercury retrograde to our advantage in business. Because, yes, all of the stars, even Mercury, are conspiring for our success.   


The planets actually have so much to say to us if we only listen and Mercury is the most loquacious. He darts and dives around the Sun 3 times a year and each time, when it looks like he’s running backward, it’s known as the dreaded Mercury Retrograde. 


Poor Mercury! He’s only trying to help and he wants us to know how we can use these periods to boost our businesses with powerful business tip ahead…


8 Powerful Business Tips


Here are 8 powerful business tips to not just survive, but thrive during Mercury retrograde:


1.    Revamping Strategy: Everything is up for (re) in this period – think review, refine, reassess, release. It’s a time to revisit or revamp, so let’s embrace this period as an opportunity to review business strategies and fine-tune goals to emerge stronger as Mercury shifts gears.

2.   Reigniting Customer Loyalty: Reengage with clients and reach out to former clients or partners who’ve fallen off the radar. Mercury retrograde encourages us to reimagine connections and rediscover opportunities.

3.   Making Small Decisions: This isn’t the time for major decisions as we’ll regret what we’ve been so firm about during the retrograde period. Mercury is a trickster as he wants us to slow down to ensure we’re building a strong foundation. He clouds judgment, so using this time for research, planning and groundwork is our best bet. 

4.    Unleashing Creativity: In retrograde, Mercury is asking us how we can be more creative. He wants us to drop into our hearts and feel our passion. This doesn’t necessarily mean we need to pick up our paint brushes or musical instruments. It means we get to brainstorm fresh ideas, innovative new offerings and imagine solutions to longstanding challenges.

5.    Energizing Vision: We get to restore our vision with a fresh new perspective, find deeper meaning to our mission and/or realign with our higher purpose. This is exciting and reigniting if we reach for our patience and allow new ideas to unfold. It’s an unfurling, not a lightning bolt epiphany. 

6.    Being Flexible: Change and change again is Mercury’s cosmic dance, reminding us that pivoting gracefully when unexpected challenges arise makes us shine. By going with the flow, we can define our intent without expectations. As we commit without trying to control the outcome, we actually increase our prosperity flow. 

7.    Clearing Communication Pathways: Knowing misunderstandings are more prevalent, we can lead the way by taking the time to foster communications within our communities, replenish connections and fine-tune collaborations. Laying out step-by-step goals, guidelines or procedures is very Mercury retrograde. 

8.    Getting Intuitive: Mercury wants us to see, know and hear without using our minds. Yup – this is his mission when he stations retrograde. Our challenge, should we choose to accept it, is to spend time in meditation, reflection and introspection. We can get to know ourselves better, more intimately, to become stronger in our convictions, deepen our passions and position our businesses properly within our niche or industry. 


All this being said, Mercury retrograde isn’t kind to anything new or big. However, sometimes we have to sign a contract, negotiate or start something new during a retrograde period. My best advice is to double and triple check on both sides. We don’t want someone to think they’re getting something we haven’t offered or vice versa. Taking extra caution, dotting i’s and crossing t’s laboriously, is the way through these retrograde periods. 


Also, if we have a launch or promotion that has to happen during a Mercury retrograde period, recognize it’s not going to be the rocket blast we may desire. It’ll be a slower, longer curve, so I always say, plan for a longer lead in and an extra-long tail. Doing an elegant outreach campaign is excellent positioning for the way of the future. 


It’s collaboration, collaboration, collaboration that clears our pathways for expanding our influence and making big impact.  


Using Mercury retrograde periods to teach us patience for clarity in goals, communication and connection, puts us in the driver’s seat for the future. 


Mercury may be a trickster, but he has our best interests at heart. 


Mark Your Calendar!


We’re in the midst of another Mercury retrograde period until mid-September, but never fear, another one is only a few months away. 😬


Mercury Retrograde Dates 


August 23 – September 15, 2023

December 13 to January 1, 2024

April 1 – 25, 2024

August 4 – 28, 2024

November 25 – December 15, 2024



For Geminis and Virgos, extend these periods a handful of days before and after each date range – no matter which year. In 2023, Capricorns and Taurians need to do this as well. In 2024, the fire signs are impacted the most, so those in Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are going to join the Geminis and Virgos in the extension periods. 


Bottom Line to harness the 8 powerful business tips


As leaders, it’s our role to harness the energy around us and transform it into positive momentum. Mercury retrograde is our chance to realign, rejuvenate, and revitalize our businesses. Let’s rise above the common narrative so that we can use these cosmic tides to our advantage!


Stay tuned for more insightful updates to use the stars + strategy to clear the pathway to your success. I’m here to empower you with the knowledge and inspiration needed so that we can lead your business to new heights.


Cheers to cosmic growth,

April 2023 Summary

Theme: Blind Leap into the New

Sun signs – Aries & Taurus

Simple truths come from the chaos. The restrictions continue and the world comes together and moves apart, simultaneously. The choice is here and blind faith is the answer. It will all work out – of this, I am sure. Dial into the frequency that soothes and helps you see the light. Attune to your own truth. Your belief system is put to the test. Yet, it holds.  Stay steady. Breathe. Take tentative steps into the new ways of living and leading. Leadership is required. Let’s be ready. 


Big Star Events: (in chronological order)

  • April – All planets direct until the 21st
  • April 17th – Venus out of bounds
  • April 20th – Ring of Fire eclipse & Sun square Pluto
  • April 21st – Mercury retrograde

Week 1: April 3 – 9

Access the confident, deliberate and solution-oriented influences. Empathy, compassion and love win the day. Weather, food supplies and transportation issues take center stage. Hope for healing the climate, technological remedies and scientific innovations shine light for the future. Chances open to be part of the way forward.

Avoid the fear, doubt and confusion that breakdowns and limits create. The news continues to be explosive and scary. Problems appear to stack up without relief, especially about social and environmental justice.  Powerful people take advantage of fixed opinions to sway the masses toward their point of view.

Tips: Pay attention to the discoveries coming into the open. Remain detached and flexible. Think about what’s worked for you in the past and stay the course. Patience isn’t easy to come by, so remind yourself of your long-term goals.  Small celebrations bring levity and relief.   

Week 2: April 10 – 16

Access the benefits of committed and loving relationship. Deep feelings and intense emotions can strengthen your connections. Fortune favors the bold and it’s courageous to be dedicated to your convictions, even when they seem to take a beating. Your power grows by steadily racking up your accomplishments.

Avoid expending your energy on things that aren’t yours or distracting yourself with overindulgence. Money woes, physical obstacles and relationship doubts continue to build. Feelings of isolation and disconnection push you to seek support in inopportune and rash ways.  

Tips: Remember the adage, “Being happy is more important than being right”.  Review what’s truly important for you and trim down the rest. Read over your values every day to deepen your commitment to what’s true for you.

Week 3: April 17 – 23

On April 20th, Happy birthday Taurus, Hello Ring of Fire eclipse and confrontation between the Sun and Pluto.

Access flirty, sassy playfulness with Venus in Gemini and out of bounds. She’s eclectic and unusual in her tastes. The fun, lightheartedness paves the way for ease and simple truths. Simplicity and creature comforts are desired.  Wealth and power come to those who exhibit patience and commitment.

Avoid overindulgence and over-spending recklessness. Tensions and confrontations make it nearly impossible to find your footing. Power plays and competitive grabs trigger you and threaten your peace of mind. Typical processes and systems break and fall apart.

Tips: Stand in your authority and keep your eyes facing forward. Yet, notice what’s happening around you with an open heart. Ask yourself what you’re willing to do and not willing to do in world events. Ask how can this be provocative versus provoking. Remember you get to choose how you respond.

Big Star Event: Mercury Retrograde in Taurus

Mercury Rx: April – May 2023: Connect to Your Future

Details: April 21 – May 14 in Taurus 15°-  5° (during an ecliptic cycle)

Through the fog of another ecliptic cycle, Mercury expects easy answers to difficult questions while churning everything in your path – people, technologies and schedules. You can’t find your way through the fog and suddenly, the floor seems to be shaking beneath your feet. The explosive square between the Sun and Pluto isn’t helping either. Shock waves reverberate through your core.  Mercury giggles and flashes mirrored reflections from everyone around you. He’s helped by Venus and Mars being out of bounds, adding more pressure to your love life by complicating how you show up for yourself and others. Ugh.

As for Mercury, what’s his deal? Mercury wants you to believe – without any logical reason to do so. A helpful mantra during this time is “I believe”. Say it over and over again until you actually do. 😘

Note: For Taurus signs and those with packed 2nd houses, add the shadow periods for this retrograde cycle. Add the shadow period beginning on April 7th and until May 31st. For Virgos and Capricorns, your world is shaken too, however, you have more certainty, so lean into it. For the fixed signs of Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, use your powers of self-persuasion, with an eye on the future, for the answers you seek.

Week 4: April 24 – 30

Access the abundant, brilliant new ideas with the will to implement them. Creative solutions for the Earth and her resources abound. Imaginative pursuits and intuitive leanings expand and become interesting to the mainstream.  Dissolution of old patterns. Unfair fix-it solutions get attention.  Willingness to take action based on these insights.   

Avoid feelings of righteous, judgement and smugness. Responding to unjust and out of balance happenings isn’t productive. Things come to surface and get buried just as quickly. The doing and undoing causes confusion and the desire to react swiftly.

Tips: Do things that bring you comfort and help you feel stable and secure. Connect to nature by spending time outdoors. Simplify your life. Expend excess energy through physical activity.  Cook your favorite foods, garden and entertain family and close friends.


The Moon phases help manifest things you want, celebrate things you have and get rid of things you no longer want. Here are the phases and what you should do:

  1. The New Moon is for setting your strategy.
  2. From the New to Full Moon, it’s the time to manifest, appreciate and create.
  3. The Full Moon is for taking stock in gratitude and refinement.
  4. From the Full to New Moon, it’s the time to celebrate, release and merge.

Full Moon: Awaken to the Future

Details: April 6th Sun in Aries & Moon in Libra 16° @12:37 am ET

Today is a glimpse into the nodal shifts in July and the fiery energies of 2025. It’s possible to either create the world you desire or destroy it.  Full acceptance of the heart and soul as part of everyday existence is the key to unlocking the New Earth for the masses.  Will they accept? Or will they revolt? With chaos, comes creation. 

New Moon: Window into the New

Details: April 20th Sun & Moon in Aries 29° @ 12:15 am ET

The middle is missing, it’s been hollowed out. The Moon steps in to give power to the middle, literally and figuratively. During this blind leap of faith moment, the edges have all of the energy due to their vibrancy and intensity. It’s alluring to become part of a faction. However, it’s just that – a faction.  Where’s the middle? Does the middle show up or does it hide?

Big Star Event: The Ring of Fire Eclipse

Within 2 minutes of the New Moon, the annular effects of the eclipse create a ring of fire as the Moon covers the Sun’s center to peak around the edges as she gets between the Earth and the Sun.

In the last breath of Aries, the solar eclipse begins to bring a fiery, awakened response to what’s happening around you. This spark ignites and ripples for 6 months until the next eclipse.

The Moon’s energy combines with the Sun’s, making you live and breathe Aries forces of courage, independence and authenticity. Who are you and how do you want to live are questions that arise once again. It’s time for taking action, making changes and starting something new.  

Pluto’s influence suggests challenges and overcoming fears as you wrangle with how to begin something new, while Jupiter urges you to take calculated risks instead of reacting impulsively.


The oracle cards bring insight into what’s coming for the month. They give your mind something to focus on and remember as you go through the days and weeks. You can ponder the card or go into the guidance in the book when you need more than mental reminders.

The power of animal and crystal energy are easy to employ to help you create the success and satisfaction you desire. Spirit animals are always willing to assist. Simply call on the animal to bring it into focus and ponder its meaning.

For crystals, grab the crystal and put it on your desk, purse or kitchen table. You want to align with your success and this month’s stone helps you do that.

For flower essences, put 3 drops into water 3 times a day and feel the gentle support for your body and emotions.

Oracle card: #45 Sell

What you crave, craves you. It’s time. Your offerings are needed in the world. Come out and put yourself forward. It’s time to inform, invite and offer. The message of the card is: “Selling is a part of being a business owner. This card wants you to make those calls, invite those prospects and extend those offers.”

Quick tip: Print out your client roster and lead tracking sheets. Close your eyes and point your finger on a name. Call the person whose name you chose. There’s a reason that name was selected – make it count.

Crystal: Fire Agate

Seek respite in the stone of the month: Fire Agate

Agate is a grounding stone with a powerful multi-level cleansing effect. It balances yin and yang, soothes and helps with self-acceptance and speaking the truth. It heals anger and facilitates spiritual growth. Fire agate promotes inner security and is antidote to emotional vulnerability. It’s an all-around healing stone as its grounding, mellowing and protecting.

Flower Essence: Walnut

Change. This essence helps us deal with changing circumstances without losing balance. It provides protection from change and unwanted influences. It heralds new beginnings, fresh starts and futures all of which are components of our work in the world and beyond.

Spirit Animal: Skunk

Skunk symbolizes reputation and respect. You’re confident, charismatic, playful and nonchalant. You exude calm, courageous and love to pursue information yourself, rather than to rely on others.

Call on skunk when you need to defend yourself, want to regain your self-respect and self-esteem or want to be more playful.

Following our success-making Do You Know, Like and Trust Yourself ™ methodology, tap into the energies of your Intuitive Success Type for the best results this month.

Wise Strategist – Get ahead by stepping into the third week’s energy. Let Mercury Retrograde move you to the top. You love the review, refine, redefine, reassess requirements of this energy. All other types don’t. Use this time to your advantage. Get to the bottom of what really matters. Prioritize your activities. Choose those that utilize your strengths to give you the best results.

Intuitive Visionary – Gathering the momentum around your key offerings propels you to the next level. Focus on the bottom line, not your top revenue figures. Get back to what works for you and disregard everything that’s superfluous. Fine tune every aspect of your business.  The success is in the details. Your concentrated effort now pays off for years to come.

Collaborative Explorer – Your rebellious side comes to life this month. Allow the fiery tones to boost your exploration of your definition of love, wealth and success. Your competitive side has been slumbering for so long, you’ve forgotten how to access it. Healthy parameters to achieve your goals and get the results you desire need to be created. Spend the time to do so this month. It pays off during the next eclipse in October.

Ruling Warrior – You adore the fiery energies, but are impatient with the lack of results as things appear to come together and then fritter away. It’s best to remember what’s meant for you remains and what’s not, disappears. Appreciate the helpful elements of this energy – you won’t waste time. Saving time supports your efforts to optimize and streamline to improve your bottom line.

Creative Superstar – Alternating between feelings of being wronged and feeling entitled spins you into a frenzy. The urge to overindulge pushes at you daily. There are too many wishes and desires that aren’t being met. Your relationships intensify to the point of requiring commitment from you before you’re ready. Dive deeply into your core to find the answers. You know what’s right for you.    

Loving Alchemist – Close loving and family relationships get added energy this month, yet it’s unclear what each require from you. Each asks something of you on a daily basis. You get off track due to other’s needs. It’s important not to forget yourself. Now’s the time to figure out what you want. Your desires for success and wealth matter too. Let the eclipse be a time to refine your intentions.


This year is a series of gates that open for you to walk into the new energy that combines ancient wisdom with innovative methods. The feminine aspects of intuition and cyclic cosmic influence weave with the masculine forces of logic, reason and expansion. The Ring of Fire eclipse hearkens for the resonance of the future. Are you listening?

Thank you for reading & sharing with family and friends.

As always, wishing you joy,
