In the beginning…: Venus conjuncts Mars in Aries

Welcome to the Chinese New Year!

…and the second Aquarius New Moon of the year – a rather unusual one – straddling the cusp of Pisces at 29’ 59” degrees Aquarius.

10610626_10152580532645706_2376399833033416905_nWe’re entering a passionate cycle, buzzing with possibilities, all building up to dramatic and magical crescendo as the Virgo Full Moon peaks on Mar. 6, 2014 bringing a culmination to events beginning with this cycle.

Currently — Mercury is moving through its final shadow phase and will clear shadow on Mar. 4, 2016 (among other aspects) just before the Full Moon on March 6, 2015.

Communication that has gone haywire, should hopefully start to get easier, offering the chance to clear the air, misunderstandings and reach a deeper understanding of the options available.

But perhaps most significantly, over the past day and a half, Mars and Venus have both left Pisces to enter Aries bringing to the surface fiery undeniable passions and attractions. And you can expect fireworks this weekend.

Venus and Mars meet in conjunction less than 24 hours from now on Feb. 22, 2015 at 01+ Aries. (If you head out tonight, under clear skies, you should see the two of them hanging out by the crescent Moon also in Aries.)

Anytime Venus and Mars get together relationships start to heat up, as do creative and financial situations. Something that’s been brewing a while, is reaching a climax. Mars is the seed of life, Venus ‘the womb,’ and in Aries, this conjunction is seeding, powerful new beginnings.

Venus and Mars have just moved from Pisces to Aries. Pisces is the 12th sign that represents the cosmic void, what’s unseen, behind the veil, all that is. Aries is the 1st sign of the zodiac – born out of Pisces, where the un-manifest becomes manifest and comes alive.

This energy is playful, curious and fearless. This is the fire of creation. But like a child playing with fire, this can be dangerous and destructive if handled unconsciously. This means having self-awareness of your desires, fears, past pain, resentments, anger and triggers; as well as any tendency to be selfish or self-centered which will never take you far.

A situation where you feel the heat holds fertile, lucrative potential. But proceed slowly, with caution. Then you needn’t fear getting ahead of yourself, burned or acting in the heat of the moment and later regretting it.

It will require more than passion to sustain something, but don’t doubt there’s something birthing in the part of your chart represented by Aries. And don’t underestimate the power of this energy allowing you to create something beautiful out of seemingly nothing.

On a personal note, this Mercury retrograde took place in my 10th Solar House and I’ve been working through every unforseen technical issue imaginable starting from a crashed hard-disk to a crashed mailing list, mounting deadlines, backlogged email and current projects, while I simply try to keep up with back-end stuff and life. This has also eaten away from my Blog writing, something I enjoy as a daily meditation and my way of giving back.

I finally managed to escape  to the beach, get some much needed space to clear my head and catch up. I’m slowly but surely starting to make headway (the sea is a great healer) but I’m working with limited Internet access, so if you’ve emailed me recently and are waiting to hear back from me for over a week, please feel free to re-send your email.

Also has certainly given me pause for thought, asking me to look deeply at what needs to change. It’s getting harder and harder to do it all and still give the astrology the attention it deserves. Of course hiring help means an investment of resources. But given the upcoming Venus – Mars conjunction, (which I also have natally in my chart,) there are a lot of ideas birthing within me and I’m hoping this energy will be just the kick-start I need to attract and manifest what’s needed, so I can get back to doing what I do and love best — Astrology.

To that end and to celebrate the conjunction — I’m offering a discounted rate of $500 (usual $550) on a special Venus-Mars package of four Consultations, until the Full Moon March 6, 2015.

==Venus-Mars Consultation package – 4 x 60 min Astrology Consultations – $500 (purchase by Mar. 6, 2

These can be used as regular Consultations over a period of 4 months. Or as an opportunity to dive into the three Venus-Mars conjunctions this year, look at what they activate in your chart, the story being played out and how you can get the most out of the potential the conjunctions offer — in your relationships, financial situations and creative projects — especially those beginning now.

All Consultations booked now will be scheduled starting the second week of March, so please book early if you want to be guaranteed an early appointment. 

I’ll be back with more astrology soon, probably around the Full Moon. But I’ve interpreted the conjunction and other aspects in detail in the Aquarius New Moon report, sent out to the Cosmic Diaries subscribers, covering the astrology over the next two weeks leading up to the Virgo Full Moon. Below is an excerpt.

Wishing you a fun and passionate weekend!

With Love from Goa,

An Excerpt ==

“There are powerful aspects unfolding over the next two weeks as we move to the Virgo Full Moon two weeks from now.

“Life could leave you more than a little breathless; this is not for the faint-hearted, and you’d be wise to buckle your seat-belt over the next few weeks. But don’t underestimate the sheer fiery, creative, fertile potential of this energy to kick-start whatever initiate.

“The Sun and Moon enter Pisces immediately following the New Moon. Then on Feb. 20, 2015 Mars enters his home sign Aries followed immediately by Venus, hot on his trail within 24 hours; and Venus and Mars meet in conjunction on Feb. 22, 2015 igniting deep passionate desires.

“There’s romance, fun, excitement, creative, lucrative financial potential, sexual passion and (dare I say) love, in the air. But this could even trigger fears surrounding abandonment, betrayal, being burned or perhaps anger or pain from the past.

“In Aries, this is a phase of initiation and this is pure, raw, primal energy. You’re playing with fire here, so proceed with awareness. And be conscious so you aren’t projecting either fear or desire.

“In an existing relationship, this is a chance to discover someone all over again. If you meet someone new, acknowledge your desires, and then you won’t confuse love with lust…” — Priya Kale, Aquarius New Moon report. Read Full Report.

The Never Ending Story…: Mercury retrograde in Aquarius, Venus in Pisces, Venus-Mars conjunctions and more…

Cosmic Diaries Subscriber service

Cosmic Diaries: 2015 Year Ahead – Highlights

Cosmic Diaries: 2015 Annual Horoscopes

Personal Astrology Consultations


Now I’ve always been the kind of person that doesn’t like to trespass
but sometimes you just find yourself over the line
Oh if there’s an original thought out there, I could use it right now

– Bob Dylan, Brownsville Girl.

A warm welcome to all the new readers to this page, especially those who found me through my colleague Nadiya Shah’s video. I hope you enjoy the website and work; and I hope you stick around!


Dear Friends,

Apologies for being away from the Blog for a bit. Between the holidays, settling into  a new routine, Consultations and retrieving a crashed hard disk, right before Mercury stationed retrograde, I’ve had my hands full.

But I just wanted to check in with the Blog, given all the activity in the sky. Currently the Sun, Venus and Mercury (now retrograde) are transiting through Aquarius.

"total eclipse of the heart."Mercury first entered shadow just after the Cancer Full Moon on Jan 5, 2015 and as Mercury retraces its steps through Aquarius, we’re in a phase of reviewing and recovering the territory we’ve been in since then. Mercury stations direct on Feb. 11, 2015 and makes a third pass over the same degrees of the zodiac and finally moves out of shadow into new territory on Mar. 4, 2015.

And this brings us March 17, 2015 which marks the grand-finale and final aspect of the ongoing squares between Uranus and Pluto since 2012, which have changed the landscape of the world and all our lives.

The most recent square between these two planets occurred on Dec. 16, 2014, just a few days before Saturn entered Sagittarius. In the last days of Saturn in Scorpio, I recorded a video on Saturn’s transit through Sagittarius.

At the time, I remember the words ”religious fundamentalism” coming through very strongly, which I mentioned in the video. Since then as Saturn entered Sagittarius, we’ve seen events unfold around the world, not least in Paris and Pakistan. Sagittarius being the sign of publishing, once again the astrological symbolism is stark and evident.

It may be easy to lose hope in the face of the violence all around us. But as meaningless as it is and seems, it need not be in vain, if it inspires us to be the force for change; to be more compassionate and kinder human beings. Whether we see it or not, there is always a higher divine plan in motion – and you never know what could set off a chain reaction. You have no control over the outcome of things – but you do control what you put out into the world. Use this power wisely.

Especially, with Mercury’s retrograde phase leading up to this final Uranus-Pluto square: let go of perceptions, then you can can see different facets to a situation or person that you haven’t previously seen, bringing you a recognition of the oneness of life.

Also, Venus is now in the final degree and final hours of her transit through Aquarius. Venus enters Pisces (the sign of her exaltation) at 2:57 PM GMT on Jan. 27, 2015 until Feb. 21, 2014, to join Mars in the sign. And then immediately after her ingress into Aries, she makes a spicy conjunction to Mars on Feb. 22, 2015.

Anytime Venus and Mars come together in the sky, we see relationships, creative and financial situations heat up, especially with this conjunction being in Aries – the first Fire sign. Although this is a fast moving transit we have three Venus-Mars conjunctions this year, which speak of a longer story unfolding. No matter what has gone down before, this conjunction in Aries suggests this is just the beginning.

But that’s later — and what happens then depends on how you’re able to flow with life now. With Mars and Venus moving through Pisces over the next few weeks: before you jump into the fire, dip your feet, warm your toes, see how something feels before you dive in.

Pisces represents all that is un-manifest; the great void, from which all of creation is born. All things are possible, but seek depth then you won’t get swept away in a fantasy or illusion and then have a rude awakening.

Financially too, now would be a great time to plug any leaks before you try to fill up the bucket, or you could find yourself under the gun later. If you work well under pressure that’s fine – but if you do what you need to now – you could free yourself up to have some fun by the time of the conjunction.

As I write this the Moon is in Taurus now, just about to square the Sun, bringing us to the Quarter Moon. Marking the half-way point of the cycle that began with the New Moon leading to the Leo Full Moon just over a week from now on Feb. 4, 2015.

Usually we have one New and one Full Moon per sign. This year we have two – the first and recent New Moon Aquarius at 0’ 9” degrees and the second one at 29’ 59” degrees of the sign. To me this speaks of a longer story unfolding, offering second chances and new starts, if we’re willing to learn from and be comfortable with all that’s up in the air.

Of course there’s a whole lot more going on in between now and then, not least a very passionate Leo Full Moon on Feb. 4, 2015 — which also triggers the degree of the Venus-Mars conjunction in Leo later this year. And dare I say it love is in the air, or water. But still go slow and you won’t slip up.

I’ve written more about Mercury’s retrograde, Venus in Pisces and other current transits in detail in the Moon reports. Time-permitting, I will check back in here around the time of the Full Moon with more astrology. But for now my focus is on the back-end: with writing Horoscopes and Moon reports for the Cosmic Diaries Subscriber service, uploading the second part of the 2015 and beyond Horoscopes and Consultations.

Aquarius New Moon (0+ degrees) report

An Excerpt  ==

“You can breathe a dream to life. But it will also require discipline and an ability to stay the track, re-evaluate what is or isn’t working and make adjustments accordingly moving forward. The key is to learn from the past, not stay stuck in it.

“Allow things to stand on their head, clear space so there’s room for inspiration to strike. The more you let go of the need for validation, you can find the freedom you need to be uniquely you and express your art, heart and be a source of inspiration.

“A significant shift comes as Venus enters Pisces, the sign of her exaltation, on Jan. 27, 2015. This is very creative energy, as well as very romantic energy.

“But really Venus in Pisces teaches us lessons about unconditional love, rather than “love” as defined by the laws of this material world or the movies. 

“This is the real deal. The kind of love, that cannot be possessed or contained, only felt, beyond the flesh, deep in your heart and soul.

“There could be sweet re-connections and dramatic revelations as you move to the Leo Full Moon. Share the love you feel, rather than hold on to expectation of how something will be received, or whether your love will be reciprocated…” — Priya Kale. Read Full Aquarius New Moon 2015 report.

“Swayambhu” Pillar of Fire…: Saturn in Sagittarius

Cosmic Diaries: 2015 Year Ahead – Highlights

Cosmic Diaries: 2015 Annual Horoscopes


The last time I wrote the Blog, Saturn was in its last few hours of Scorpio. Soon after I finished writing, as Saturn entered Sagittarius, I was reading a book I recently bought — “The Seven Secrets of Shiva” by Devdutt Patnaik. And I came to this story (below), which brought alive, glaringly, symbolism of Saturn in Sagittarius — the pillar of fire and truth.

I’ll have more to say about this — but I just wanted to share this with you.

Today, January 13, 2015 — the Moon is in Libra as I write this about to square the Sun in Capricorn, moving us into the Last Quarter of the Moon as we move to the Aquarius New Moon on Jan. 20, 2015, followed immediately by Mercury’s retrograde in the sign. Also Mars entered Pisces yesterday. You can read more about these transits in this month’s Cosmic Weather here.

More soon –


An Excerpt from “The Seven Secrets of Shiva” by Devdutt Patnaik ==

“One day Brahma and Vishnu were quarreling. Brahma claimed, ‘I created the world, I must be God.’ Vishnu retorted, ‘ That you that seeks validation means you cannot be God.; ‘Then who is God?’ Brahma demanded to know.

“In response, a pillar [Saturn] of fire [Sagittarius] appeared between them. It stretched up beyond the dome of he sky and down below the foundations of the earth. And the fire seemed to be burning with any fuel.

“Both Brahma and Vishn decided to look for the ends of this pillar of fire. Brahma took the form of a swam and flew up to find it’s top. Vishnu took form of a boar and dug his way down, determined to find it’s base. Brahma flew for months and year but there was no sign of the tip of the fiery pillar. Vishnu dug for months and years but there was no sign of the base of the fiery piller.

“Finally, exhausted, the two returned to share their findings. ‘This pillar of fire has no base,’ admitted Vishnu. ‘It is endless and infinite.’ Brahma however, lied. I found the tip. I even found Ketaki flowers on it. I have done what you could not do, I am greater than you. I must therefore be God.’

“As soon as Brahma said this, the pillar of fire burst open and out came another god, who looked like a mendicant, smeared with ask and wrapped in animal skins. ‘Liar,’ he shouted pointing to Brahma. ‘You lie so that you can delude the world with your lies so as to dominate everyone around you and feel powerful. You are not God.’ He then turned to Vishnu and smiled, ‘You admit the truth. You are humble enough to accept limitations. You are curious to know what lies beyond the horizon. You are not intimated by uncertainty or afraid of ignorance. You are in the process of becoming God.’

“Brahma trembled and bowers the this self-assured being. Vishnu watched him in awe. The mendicant identified himself, ‘If the formless can be given a form then I am he. I am God, I am Shiva.’ Since that day the stone pillar linda is worshipped by all, a reminder of the pillar of flames that appeared between Brahma and Vishnu.”

“Brahma is God who creates all forms, hence is called the creator; but he has not yet found the perfect form and is still yearning and searching, making him unworthy of worship. Vishnu is God who has realized that no form is perfect and so works with limited forms. This is why he is called the preserver and is worshipped in various forms. Shiva is the God who breaks free from all forms, having found all of them limited, hence he is the destroyer who is worshipped as the ‘Linga.’

“Wisdom [Sagittarius] lies in breaking free from all differences, divisions and limitations [Saturn] so that infinity may be realized…”

Cosmic Diaries: 2015 Year Ahead (Brief Overview & Highlights)


Welcome to 2015!

“Over the past few years, we’ve been at a turning point globally and individually — with an ongoing series of seven Uranus-Pluto squares that have dominated the skies.

“2014 brought things to a head and came with a dramatic close, setting us on a whole new path. .

“Life is never without its challenges, and 2015 will have its share. That is how we grow. But for all the hard work, that evolution has demanded, its like there’s a cosmic celebration party waiting to welcome us to the other side.

“And 2015 will be a year we will look back on fondly, as a time when everything began to turn around. It’s time to give yourself permission to let your hair down, love, live, laugh, create and most importantly have fun…”

“Revolving Doors…”

Uranus-Pluto square – March 17, 2015  (Final aspect in a series of 7 squares till 2073.)

“…A process has been heating up; and 2012 marked the first of (seven) squares between Pluto and Uranus — reflecting the state of change we’ve been in collectively, globally and very personally.

“The most recent and 6th in this series of squares occurred on Dec. 15, 2015. Now the red-letter day, we’ve been waiting for, arrives on March 17, 2015, marking the seventh and final square between these two planets (until 2073) propelling us into the future.

“As the year progresses, the ongoing influence of the aspect starts to dissipate; we turn a corner to discover a new path and fertile new territory to be explored…” Continued… Read full detailed report of the 2015 Year Ahead here.


Saturn in Sagittarius

“Speaking of new pathways, we enter this year in an undeniably new world.

“Saturn entered Sagittarius on Dec. 23, 2014; doors closed and chapters ended, as surely as new ones have begun. And these first six months of 2015 call for an exploration of this new world.

“But don’t stray too far. Saturn returns to Scorpio from June to September 2015 and there’s unfinished business, relationships and situations that yet need to be resolved. But hopefully we can do so with renewed wisdom, given our experiences through the first half of the year. Then you can re-evaluate important boundaries given all you’ve learned.

“Sagittarius represents the higher mind, higher educations, law, high courts, philosophy, psychology, international travel, foreign cultures, languages, everything beyond boundaries and beyond the horizon. It also rules religion, spirituality, what we know of “God,” wisdom, knowledge and you can expect these themes to be highlighted in your life.

“Sagittarius is also the sign of “flight” and we’ve already seen and will continue to see the aviation industry in the news. The aviation industry and laws, especially surrounding international travel, international law. We’re also likely to see the reshaping, redefining borders across the world, new international coalitions. Immigration laws too will be under focus; really everything to do with borders, foreign land, education, including hopefully the severely outdated laws surrounding student loans in the US.

“There may be a sense of having to slow down, look before you leap; aim before you let go of the arrow. Think of this transit of Saturn in Sagittarius, over the next two and half years as construction on the highway. The road to get somewhere will be long, you will encounter obstacles along the way, perhaps a few road-blocks, detours and dead-ends.

“Remain humble and keep your perspective at all times. Every situation and person you encounter has something to teach you. Your journey is the destination…” Continued… Read full detailed report of the 2015 Year Ahead here.


“Fire of creation…”

Three Venus – Mars conjunctions

Venus conjuncts Mars at 01+ Aries on Feb. 22, 2015

Venus conjuncts Mars at 14+ Leo on Sept. 1, 2015

Venus conjuncts Mars at 24+ Virgo on Nov. 3, 2014

“Perhaps the most exciting part about 2015 is the occurrence of three Venus and Mars conjunctions (usually we have one) suggesting three times the fun, passion, excitement and fertile, lush potential for financial situations, all relationships — romantic, business, platonic and all matters of the heart and your creativity.

“Mars being the male principle, the seed of life and creation — and Venus the female of feminine principle, the womb from which all is born.

“As the final Uranus-Pluto square culminates, the climate is fertile like the soil after a forest fire in the wake of destruction, ready new growth.

“Venus and Mars are relatively fast moving planets, so the actual influence of the individual aspects are likely to span a few days on either side. But with three conjunctions in a year, there is a greater story arc being played out.

“So I would ask you to play close attention to what surfaces and the people and situations you are dealing with at the time of the conjunctions. These are the key players. And there’s a lot of potential here, but you have to dance.

“Love and relationships are heating up. Sparks, could turn into a roaring fire allowing you to rekindle an existing relationship, meet a partner who could be your equal or then perhaps even see dramatic re-unions…” Continued… Read full detailed report of the 2015 Year Ahead here.


“Big Love…”

Jupiter in Leo 2014 – 2015

“Jupiter is retrograde in Leo as we begin the year, and there is a sense of retreating into oneself.

“This is a chance to get honest about what you’re aiming for, what you truly desire and making sure they align. Also ask yourself if you might be holding back from exploring an opportunity, because of self-doubt or a false lack of confidence. Also, be in no denial of your conditioning that perhaps prevents you from exploring your greatest potential.

“Jupiter stations direct on April 8, 2015 and will make it’s final pass through Leo until mid-August. The transit continues to renew optimism, passion, zest for life, bolstering confidence.

“Where ever you have Leo in your chart — this is your chance to make hay while the Sun shines. There are likely to be more spontaneous journeys, adventures, once in a lifetime opportunities beckoning you to explore them.

“Be wise, reach for your most hopeful, optimistic vision and you can trust you will land on your feet…” Continued… Read full detailed report of the 2015 Year Ahead here.

“All things great and small…”

Jupiter in Virgo: 2015 – 2016

“Jupiter enters Virgo on Aug. 11, 2014 for a period of a year. The last time Jupiter was in Virgo was in 2003 and we’re coming full circle now.

“Jupiter enters Virgo for a period of a year in August 2015, and with Venus retrograde at the time of the ingress and Saturn in Scorpio — this transit will likely have a lot to do with reconnecting with old partners relations healing, building or rebuilding bridges –strengthening connections through the experiences you’ve shared with another.

“Something may seem like a huge mess, making you all too hyper-vigilant and aware of all that is wrong, could go wrong; perhaps overwhelmed with the task at hand. But Rome wasn’t built in a day; you have to start somewhere and you can start small.

“Be it physical or emotional wounds you’re dealing with, a situation at work or in your life: It will take dedication commitment, love care and devotion, but you can heal or fix anything during this time — from a broken heart, to cleaning up your life…” Continued… Read full detailed report of the 2015 Year Ahead here.

As you enter this new year, what are you leaving behind? What makes your life worth living? What stirs your passion? What do you wish to create? What’s stirring deep in your soul? 

You’re embarking on a journey of a lifetime, and early in the year, a powerful Cancer Full Moon offers a chance to wipe the slate clean, consciously let go of the past, emotional baggage, patterns and conditioning.

Then you can greet life and this New Year with your arms wide open.

Get your dancing shoes on…

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
By Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.  
His house is in the village though;  
He will not see me stopping here  
To watch his woods fill up with snow.  

My little horse must think it queer  
To stop without a farmhouse near  
Between the woods and frozen lake  
The darkest evening of the year.  

He gives his harness bells a shake  
To ask if there is some mistake.  
The only other sound’s the sweep  
Of easy wind and downy flake.  

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,  
But I have promises to keep,  
And miles to go before I sleep,  
And miles to go before I sleep.


NEW: Saturn in Sagittarius Video – Part One

Here is a Part One of the Saturn in Sagittarius transit video that I recorded two days ago, when the Sun and Moon were still in Sagittarius and Uranus was still retrograde. A lot has come to awareness since then and I will record a Part 2 shortly.


Dear Friends,

Yesterday, Uranus stationed direct in Aries, the Sun entered Capricorn marking the Solstice and the longest night of the year. Followed immediately by the Capricorn New Moon on 0+ degrees.

And now we’re in the last few hours of Saturn in Scorpio as it prepares to leave the sign and enter Sagittarius for the first time since Nov. 17, 1985.

I wrote this in the December Cosmic Weather about the Capricorn New Moon, seeding the energy of Saturn’s ingress into Sagittarius, offering insight into the transit:

“The Sagittarius season has helped you gain clarity on the vision and now you can begin to take concrete steps towards a goal. [As you move into this Capricorn New Moon cycle, remember:] The mightiest oak, came out of an acorn — and that’s equivalent of what you’re seeding. With time, dedication, commitment, ingenuity and most importantly love, something could grow larger than life.” — Priya Kale, December 2014 Cosmic Weather.

Also, I refer you back once again to Ben Commons Almanac for December 2014. I wish I’d read this yesterday.

10517621_10152222816395706_9025454099523086056_o(1)Personally — the Uranus direct station and the Capricorn New Moon, came with rather shocking developments. And with Saturn in its last degree in Scorpio my first house — I have learned more lessons, more about myself and grown more in the past 24 hours, than I perhaps have through this entire transit.

I had a blowout with a friend. Triggering deep unconscious emotions and fears. I lashed out in pain and anger. Worst of all I hurt someone I care about. But I also realize everything happens for a reason even if I can’t see it. We live and hopefully we learn. And the best I can do is to embody the very expensive lessons I’ve learned, so there can be change.

As humans we want to look for something to blame when things don’t go a way that is expected or that disrupts our version of reality or the way we think things “should” be. Rather than accepting what “is” with grace, so there can be true transformation.

Saturn’s lessons are tough, but they are necessary. And the Uranus direct station was an awakening to my own darkness and unconscious fears, and the energy work I have to do. All the knowledge in the world amounts to nothing, unless one can embody it. And necessary as honesty is for healing, but honesty without compassion is destructive.

I tell you this story, to give you an example and hopefully share the lessons I am learning. A lesson that will likely be hammered home for us all, until it is learned with this transit of Saturn in Sagittarius: knowing the path is not enough; you have to walk it.

When I write this Blog, I am certainly not preaching. At best I am talking to myself. I may know what the planets are doing tomorrow, but I still have to live the astrology and I am certainly not above it.

There’s another lesson here regarding spiritual teachers, guides, even astrologers — they are human. Just because someone knows the right thing to say, has the gift of insight, foresight, divination — it is not necessary they have mastered living and embodying their truth.

You can respect authority but you cannot surrender your power to anyone or anything other than “God”  or your own highest consciousness. We are all on our own journey and you need not lead, nor follow. Let experience be your guide.

Your only duty is to yourself; to embody and stand tall in the light of your highest consciousness and bear witness to life rather than judge it. Then your being itself will act as a guiding light or a lighthouse for ships passing through stormy waters, leaving behind a path for those and the generations that will follow in your footsteps one day.

But also remember unless you are enlightened, you are human and fallible. Now is not the time to get on your high horse about something. The mighty shall fall. Stay humble, grounded and you can go far. Then the transit can elevate you to great heights.

I’m diving back into the 2015 Annual Horoscopes now until the end of the year, but time permitting I will try to check back in here with the Blog at some point before the years end. But in the meanwhile I wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy, joyous and prosperous New Year.

You can purchase these as gifts for family and friends. Email me for payment details at priya@cosmicdiaries.com.

Dark before the Dawn…: Last few days of Saturn in Scorpio; Venus conjuncts Pluto

Hello from Mumbai, India!

As is the sky, the world has changed in the past ten days since my last post and since I arrived in India.

I wrote this on Dec. 14 a couple of days before the recent and sixth (in a series of seven) exact square between Uranus and Pluto. I Mumbai morningnever finished the post, in the midst of life. And forgot about it and was going to start over today. But re-reading the words in the light of recent events, I thought I’d post it anyway.

“I arrived in Mumbai, not after an uneventful journey. My flight was the night of the Full Moon — hours later. It was pouring rain in NYC and I had errands to run in the city.

“But with luck and grace (of the Sagittarius Sun and Gemini Full Moon) I found a cab driver, who drove me around the city all day while I ran errands for free. He said it was Karma. And the best part were his stories and the wisdom he had to share.

I couldn’t help but smile at the symbolism — cab driver, transportation, conversation — all Gemini and wisdom, generosity and me traveling long distance — Sagittarius. Showing me yet again, bearing witness to life, astrology comes alive.

“Bringing me to the current astrology and what’s going on in the world. Venus entered Capricorn a few days ago, and is inching her way to a conjunction to Pluto. Also we’re approaching the sixth of seven Uranus-Pluto squares on Dec. 15, 2014 bringing us to a collective and personal turning point yet again.

“You see the angst in the world, the oppression, the abuse of power, the explosive anger of the people. We are living and acting out these archetypes — right here on earth. Really if things were any different I’d be surprised. But as bloody a mess the world is in right now (no pun intended,) all IS just as it should be. This is suchness.

“I say this knowing there is much that begs for change — but if astrology can teach us anything in this moment about how we can better navigate this landscape, the square suggests, for change to be effective and lasting, it has to come from within.

“As long as we keep projecting out anger, powerlessness — we will continue to repeat the very patterns we are trying to break free from or destroy. There’s no time to waste in blame, pointing fingers. It’s easy to say, give yourself permission to be yourself. But do you know who you are? Your behavior is how you are — not “who” you are.

“And the aspect is really awakening you to an inner essential reality and truth. “

Since I wrote the post above — the Uranus-Pluto square arrived with the cafe siege in Sydneym which was just the beginning of a chain of horrific events, not least the murder of more than a hundred innocent children.

If you read my Blog you’re aware I rarely comment on politics or even current events or the news too much. But what’s happening now is impossible to ignore. And the astrological symbolism is stark and undeniable. Aries is the sign that rules “the child,” “children,” it also rules the “head.” And the children were shot point blank in the head; Pluto in Capricorn and Saturn in Scorpio (mutual reception) showing us the darker side of humanity.

But yet, in the midst of this, we’ve also seen the restoration of relations between the U.S. and Cuba after 50 yrs all in a span of days. An undeniable sign of hope and liberation — opening boundaries.

Situations are slowly but surely reaching a place critical mass — where change is inevitable. Either you change or change is made for you. And all that’s unfolding is indeed reflecting the sky.

We’re moving through the holiday season a time when people are naturally feeling a lot a more sensitive, nostalgic. And the sky too reflects, an intense patch of astrology between now and Christmas day — which comes with it’s own fireworks and potential for breakthroughs. So go slow.

On Dec. 21, 2014 stations direct just before the Sun leaves Sagittarius to enter Capricorn, marking the Solstice; followed immediately by the Capricorn New Moon. Also Venus and Mercury make conjunctions to Pluto, triggering the recent Uranus Pluto square and Saturn enters Sagittarius.

No matter what the calendar says, the year is far from over. And there are more than a few surprises yet to come, so buckle up. But Goddess is watching.none of this need make you nervous or fearful. With awareness, there is every opportunity to breakthrough mountainous obstacles and generations of patterns and conditioning. Liberating you to explore the potential in front of you.

I’ve interpreted these aspects in detail in the December Cosmic Weather, which I’d highly recommend you read given the potent climate. And f you haven’t watched the Overview for December, or even if you have, I’d recommend you watch it again to see if the words have deepened in meaning as life and aspects unfold.

Perhaps the most significant of all: these are Saturn’s few days in Scorpio before it changes signs for the first time in over two years to enter Sagittarius on Dec. 23, 2014, ushering us into a whole new chapter.

Saturn is the teacher, the master, the gateway, between the past and the future. And in Scorpio this has been an inward journey to the depths of the unconscious; that has likely taken you to the edge of your personal abyss.

Saturn entered Scorpio in October 2012. What have you learned in the past two years? How have you grown? The area of your life (chart) represented by Scorpio, has changed undeniably, perhaps irrevocably. But where we’ve been willing to do the work, learn the lessons — Saturn promises rewards. And this work has been of your evolution, so you can be elevated.

There is no escaping Saturn and there is no escaping Scorpio — and now as Saturn enters Sagittarius, whether you’re ready or not, there are chapters ending and doors are closing. But where one door opens, another opens and as we enter the Capricorn New Moon (ruled by Saturn) on Dec. 21, 2014 and as Saturn enters Sagittarius only days after on Dec. 23, 2014 — this is certainly heralding new hope, beginnings, setting us on a whole new path.

An Excerpt ==

“Among other major events this month, all personal planets change signs, Jupiter and Uranus change direction, Uranus and Pluto make their sixth (of seven) exact square aspects and Saturn enters Sagittarius for the first time in thirty years.

“We’re coming out of an intense Scorpio season. The Sagittarius New Moon occurred on Nov. 23, 2013 and we’re moving to the Gemini Full Moon. Currently Mercury, the Sun and Venus are all moving through Sagittarius; while Mars is in Capricorn is (sign of its exaltation) in mutual reception with Saturn in Scorpio.

“On Dec. 1, 2014, Mars in Capricorn sextiles Saturn in Scorpio. There are deep changes afoot, the rules are changing and there’s something resurrecting in the ashes of the past. But you have to let go of an old dream, if you want to reach the other shore and build something new.

“On Dec. 4, 2014 Mars changes signs and enters Aquarius, Venus in Sagittarius trines Jupiter in Leo and the Sun in Sagittarius trines Uranus in Aries. 

Venus and Jupiter are the two “benefics,” and a trine is an easy aspect.

“I’m not saying you could win the lottery, but still there is a luck factor in play and something rather serendipitous about this energy — finding yourself at the right place at the right time. Or something small, having greater implications than you realize in the moment. 

The Sun and Jupiter are in mutual reception, making the aspect even more potent. But very significantly, Jupiter is about to station retrograde.

“There is a sense of deferred gratification (or consequences), but there is also the danger of going a little too far with something. Know when you’ve had too much of a good thing, move in awareness, watch your ego, be wise and you could win big.

“Gemini Full Moon – Dec. 6, 2014 at 14+ degrees at 7:26 AM EST.

“The energy continues to build as we reach the Gemini Full Moon on Dec. 6, 2014 at 14+ degrees of the Sagittarius – Gemini axis bringing us to a fork in the road. Also, significantly Mercury (ruler of Gemini) trines Uranus and squares Chiron — adding to the potency of the lunation. This is a huge burst of fiery energy, propelling us forward into action.

“At the time of the lunation — the Sun is in Sagittarius the sign that represents knowledge, (what we know of) God, religion, high courts, law, long distance travel, international affairs, foreign cultures, philosophy, the higher mind — everything “beyond horizons.” The Moon is in Gemini the sign that rules communication, information, transportation, the mind, siblings, duality and even choices; these are some of the areas being highlighted now.” — Priya Kale, December 2014 Cosmic Weather.

Into the great wide open…: Sagittarius New Moon

November 2014 Horoscopes and Cosmic Weather

Video: November overview & Taurus Full Moon.


As I write this, the Sun is in the final degree of Scorpio; the Scorpio Moon is applying in conjunction to Saturn before it enters Sagittarius, early tomorrow and, conjuncts the Sun at 0+ Sagittarius at 7:32 AM EST; marking the New Moon, a new cycle, beckoning us on a whole new adventure and journey.

Here’s an excerpt from the November monthly cosmic weather report sent out to subscribers. To read the full report, horoscopes, the December monthly report and more, sign-up here for a one week free trial.


November 2014 Cosmic Weather
by Priya Kale

An Excerpt ==

“On Nov. 22, 2014 the Sun and Moon align at 0+ Sagittarius at 7:32 AM EST marking the Sagittarius New Moon. The first image that came to mind for this lunation, is a baby bird leaving the nest.

“There may be a sense of trepidation, but there is no going back now. And the Universe is like the great divine mother nudging you, ever so gently, out of the nest. She knows you are ready to fly. Even if to you it seems like jumping off a cliff. What you face is a new experience and there is so much to explore. But what is certain is you are ready; it’s time to take a leap of faith.

“Dane Rudhyar offers deep insight into the energy:


KEYNOTE: The will to reaffirm the value of the struggle upon which civilization and group-achievements are founded.

“Veterans groups in all countries seek to rekindle in their members the old fire of well-fought battles; but the type of abstract or religious thinking normally related to the zodiacal sign, Sagittarius, also implies a special kind of fire. It is a fire that burns the now of natural living in order to build a greater tomorrow. It is future-oriented It aspires to produce a greater, wider civilization, even though it finds its roots in the harvest of mankinds past. Comradeship and group activities are implied, but the togetherness is one of fighting spirits.”

Many battles have been fought. You have not been alone in this and this is far from the end of the road.  Your so called opponents, “enemies,” as well as the people who have fought alongside with you — everyone has been changed from the experience.

Who’s still standing by you? You can be sure these are worthy companions on your journey. Remember what you’ve learned, how you’ve grown and how you can move forward, embodying your lessons and new consciousness.

You are unequivocally learning now — it’s not just about knowing the path, but walking it. And there’s a whole new world out there, beckoning you to spread your wings and fly into the horizon. – Priya Kale, November 2014. Read full report, horoscopes, December report and more. 

The period before the New Moon always asks for a release. With the Scorpio Moon making a conjunction to Saturn, before the Sagittarius New Moon, let go of baggage and travel light.

Even if it currently feels like you’ve reached the end of the road with something, you haven’t. As you will see this is just the beginning.

With blessings and love,



On a personal note, if all goes well, I fly to India by the end of next week. But before that I have to pack and move. So I ask for your prayers as I make the transition.


I am available for Astrology Consultations via phone or Skype. Please visit my Consultations page for details on Consultations or email me for further information or to schedule an appointment. I look forward to working with you.
