The Astrology of June 2018 (video)

A comprehensive breakdown of the planetary-energetic activity of June 2018.

The astrological biggies this month: grand water trines, Neptune goes retrograde, a Venus-Mars opposition which engages the north and south nodes of the moon, and Mars goes retrograde in Aquarius as it dances with the south node. Because of Mars’s retrograde motion, it will be in Aquarius for quite some time – and this is quite significant for the collective.

Ethics & Conduct For Astrologers | Relationship Astrology (video)

Ethics and conduct for astrologers - Tara Nikita

A huge part of astrological counseling or delivering astrological readings is understanding appropriate conduct and ethics.

In this video, I share a personal story highlighting the need for a sensitive, intelligent and appropriate understanding of ethics in astrology when conducting astrological counseling. Being a professional astrologer, especially in the therapeutic setting, involves not directly or indirectly telling a client what to do, nor encouraging the client to abdicate his or her sense of personal responsibility.

Understanding Jupiter Transits (video)

Understanding Jupiter Transits - Tara Nikita

In this video I discuss the meaning of Jupiter transits in natal astrology. Whenever Jupiter changes signs, astrologers tend to foresee good news for those with major placements in the sign that Jupiter has entered. The premise is that Jupiter in the signs brings the fulfillment of expansive, abundant, and lucky potentials.

Though Jupiter transits promise expansion, these transits often demand that we let go or give up something, that we leave our old limits behind, and this can be something that takes a while for the conscious mind to adjust to. Jupiterian expansion takes us in the direction our soul wants us to go in, and they demand that we leave behind our old sense of possibilities and potentials – which we may have become very attached to.

Approaching the New Moon in Pisces on March 17, 2018

New moon in Pisces - March 17 2018 - Tara Nikita

Approaching the new moon in Pisces on Saturday, March 17. The Sun and Moon join Chiron in Pisces. Sun-Moon squares Mars and trines Jupiter.

For the last few weeks we have been under the influence of a strong Pisces signature. The Virgo moon at the beginning of the month had a strong Pisces subtone, with its ruler, Mercury, in Pisces. The Sun and Neptune, both in Pisces, opposed the full Moon.

We spoke back then of that Virgo full moon, representing the collective mood, being motivated to fix and solve problems out of deep feelings of dissatisfaction, hurt, sadness, loss and wounding. We spoke about this in relation to the latest school shootings/resurgence of gun-control discourse in the United States.

This new moon in Pisces invites us into a fresh new understanding. Joining up with Chiron and trining Jupiter in Scorpio, the new moon asks us to reflect on Chiron’s message: wounds, hurt, sadness and loss (Pisces-Scorpio) are the KEYS TO HIGHER SPIRITUAL CONSCIOUSNESS (Pisces).

Approaching the Full Moon in Virgo on March 1, 2018

Full Moon - Tara Nikita

Approaching the full moon in Virgo on Thursday, March 1 – Mercury joins Venus in Pisces and trines Jupiter in Scorpio. The Sun joins Neptune in Pisces.

With the full moon in Virgo, the collective mood is more attuned to what needs fixing. The collective mood is plugged in to the very Virgoan need to identify a problem, and apply mental energy to fixing it.

This full moon is opposite the Sun and Neptune in Pisces; we also have Mercury, governing this Virgo moon, sitting in Pisces. The Pisces – Virgo tension: Virgo wants to get down to the immediate business of improving things on the physical plane. Pisces, however, is not so attuned to fixing physical, mundane reality in the same way.
