Check the Power Moon Days column to find out when the Moon will be passing through your star sign this month.  You should feel particularly 'in tune' on these days and activities will proceed smoothly for you.

And if you know which sign the Moon was in when you were born, note the 2-3 days each month when the Moon will be in that sign. This is your 'lunar return' and the natural energies of this period will resonate with your own personal energy.  For example, if you were born with the Moon in Libra, you should experience feelings of harmony, balance and creativity when the transiting Moon is in Libra.

 Serious moon watchers might like to purchase a Moon Calendar from the Stella Starwoman Store.  These calendars list the exact time of day when the moon moves from one zodiac sign to the next and help you organise your life using moon cycles and lunar planning to achieve optimum emotional and physical balance.

If life’s been a bit humdrum recently, the February new moon in your friendship and networking sector will open up new opportunities for socialising and meeting new companions. If you’ve been thinking about joining a sporting club, dance class or community group, February is a great time to take action. Work life is also highlighted this month, with Venus, Mercury and Pluto in your career sector helping you negotiate a pay rise, impress your boss or find a new position. And with both Jupiter and the karmic north node in your health sector for the next 7 months, you have the best opportunity in over a decade to tackle any long standing health problems and find the right people, products or team to help you achieve your health goals. Jupiter in this part of your chart can also assist with weight loss and improved fitness. 2016 is also a good time for study – serious Saturn will help you with discipline, commitment and long term focus. This could involve learning some new, important skill; improving your work prospects or enrolling in a traditional course of study at school or university. 



Romance and relationships are the main focus for February -  Mars has been travelling through your house of marriage and partnership since the beginning of the year and will be there until early March. As you probably know, Mars is the god of war, so any grievances in close relationships are likely to surface during this time and of course there could be fireworks!  On the other hand, Mars is a very passionate planet, so if things between you and your partner are going well, the Mars energy will add spice and soul to your relationship. The February full moon on the 23rd falls in your house of romance, pleasure and creativity accompanied by lucky, expansive Jupiter and the karmic North Node. This is generally considered to be a fortunate combination, but make sure you don’t go over the top with eating, drinking, partying, gambling etc!  If you’re a creative type, you can take advantage of this favourable energy. Finally, Saturn, lord of karma continues his three-year journey through your house of investment, inheritance and joint ventures helping your clear debt and sort out your financial future. If you are negotiating a settlement or expecting an inheritance of some sort, the outcome may be delayed, but with Saturn you always get what you deserve, so be patient. A little hard work and effort now will reap results down the track.



Committed relationships continue to be a major area of focus this month with Saturn continuing his three-year journey through your marriage and partnership sector. If you’re in a happy, long term relationship, make sure you let your partner know how much you appreciate them. And if your relationship is not travelling so well, take steps to improve things, otherwise you could find yourself travelling alone! Meanwhile Jupiter, planet of fortune and growth has been in your home and family sector since last September and was joined by the karmic north in November in this same part of your solar chart. 2016 is therefore a particularly favourable time for moving home; buying or selling real estate; renovating or decorating your home and garden; renting your first apartment or building your dream property. Jupiter in this part of your birth chart will also encourage you to spend quality time with close family members, especially parents. And as the north node rules karmic and fated connections, you could find yourself reuniting with family members you haven’t seen for years. Finally, the Virgo full moon on the 23rd straddles your domestic-professional axis, helping you maintain work-life balance.




Relationships are a major focus this month Cancer with Mercury, Venus and Pluto all travelling through your house of personal and business partnership. Spend as much time as you can with your spouse or significant other enjoying your relationship, and if you’re dating someone special, this could be the right time to pop the question! Business partnerships are also favoured and those looking for more clients or patients could be pleasantly surprised. You should feel especially calm and relaxed with heaps of planets in earth and water signs, especially in the first half of February and if, like most Cancerians, you enjoy being close to water, take time this month to go swimming or walk on the beach or by the river – you’re sure to feel refreshed and revitalised. Creative Cancerians will find inspiration from passionate Mars in fellow water sign Scorpio ruling romance, creativity, pleasure and children. If you want to fall pregnant, this year is a great time to do that, or perhaps you’ll be birthing a new novel or other work of art. If you are alreday a parent, make sure you include your children in decision making in order to avoid unnecessary conflict. 

Leo 20th -22nd A new moon in your marriage and partnership sector on the 9th offers you the opportunity for fresh beginnings in this area of life. If you’re looking for someone special, this new moon could deliver the goods, and the same applies for those seeking new clients, patients or business partners. If you’ve been dating someone special, now is the time to take your relationship to the next level by getting engaged, moving in or planning a future together.  Meanwhile, Saturn continues his three-year journey through your solar house of romance, pleasure, creativity and children, meaning it’s time to get serious about any of these areas of life. Perhaps you’ve been thinking of having another child or starting a family?  Or maybe you’re working on your book / blog / website / painting / screenplay / new business?  Saturn will give you the patience, discipline and determination to get things moving and maintain the momentum. The February full moon on the 23rd puts the focus on finances – your income, the money you owe, your investments, superannuation, inheritances – all that sort of thing. Take time to look at where you stand financially so you won’t be caught out down the track.   


The February full moon falls on the 23rd in Virgo opposite the Sun and Neptune in imaginative and dreamy Pisces. This full moon asks you to choose a dream that’s particularly close to your heart and take practical steps to make it come true. The Virgo-Pisces polarity also opens the pathway to healing by providing an intrinsic and intuitive connection between body and soul. If you’ve experienced any health problems of late, this full moon could shed light on the underlying cause of illness and best course of treatment. Meanwhile you continue to benefit from the gifts of lucky Jupiter who will be in your zodiac sign until September this year. The last time Jupiter was in Virgo was August 2003 to September 2004, so you can look back 12 years to see what was happening then, and  get some understanding of the type of things to expect. The karmic north node also shifted into Virgo in mid-November and will stay there until May 2017. The real gift of having both Jupiter and the North Node in your zodiac sign is that Virgo qualities will be seriously in fashion. All you have to do is be your beautiful, natural self and others will love you for it. This should translate to better job opportunities; improved success in relationships; spiritual growth; fortunate meetings with people who can help you get ahead in life and an overall feeling of being in the right place at the right time. It’s your turn to shine Virgo!




Mercury, planet of ideas and communication, enters brilliant and rebellious air sign Aquarius on Valentine’s Day and will remain there until early March.  Emotions take a back seat to intellect during this time, and mental pursuits tend to be more appealing than spiritual ones. This is a great time to look at your life from a different angle, brainstorm new ideas and gain new perspective. Venus also enters Aquarius on the 17th lighting up your pleasure, romance and creativity sector. Time to relish the joys of friendship and companionship plus you could find yourself attracted to someone who’s not your usual physical time, but who fascinates you just the same! Creativity is also likely to blossom over the coming month with a new moon in Aquarius on the 9th.  The second half of February is a good time for conceiving a child or working on your book / painting / home reno / musical masterpiece. The final week of February is the best time to set your health and fitness goals for the coming months, as the Sun shifts into water sign Pisces.  Autumn is just around the corner and you know how easy it is to let those new year resolutions slide away. If you have any long standing health issues or need some extra support, don’t be afraid to seek professional help.


1st-3rd &

February looks set to be a great month with dynamic and energetic Mars in Scorpio right through to early March, putting fire in your belly and passion in your loins. Now is the perfect time to launch some project that requires considerable physical or mental energy, knowing the universe is firmly on your side. Plus you mental and communication skills are particularly good this month. Mars will be back in Scorpio in the June/July period as part of his retrograde cycle, so any projects that don’t get completed by March can be revisited, honed and perfected later in the year. As mentioned last month, Jupiter will be in your friendship and networking sector until September 2016, offering you the chance to make new friends, enjoy new social activities and meet people who can help you achieve your goals and broaden your horizons. Spend time getting in touch with anyone whom you think could help you on your life path and risk sharing your dreams and goals with others. Jupiter is the natural ruler of your money house, so some of these friends and contacts could also help boost your finances. The February new moon falls in your home and domestic sector, making this month a good time to move house, check out new properties, decorate, renovate or otherwise mix things up at home.



There’s some proper plotting and planning going on behind the scenes in the first couple of months of 2016 Sagittarius with action planet Mars in Scorpio in your house of secrets and unfinished business. This is not necessarily as ominous as it might sound – rather you are being asked to slow down in order to discover what’s really important before charging forward again. Mars will be entering Sagittarius in early March providing renewed clarity and energy, but back he goes into Scorpio again in June-July for more introspection. The upshot of this is that in the first half of 2016 you’ll be taking one step forward then one step back until you’re dead certain you’re on the right path. And with Saturn, lord of karma also in Sagittarius you could experience a great deal of frustration. Forewarned is forearmed however, so keep your cool, plan carefully and be prepared for bumps in the road ahead. 2016 is a great time for getting rid of excess baggage – put your stuff on eBay or take it to the op shop; let go of partners, jobs, friends, bad habits, extra kilos, possessions and even countries – it is not unusual for people to move interstate or overseas or undergo some other radical change during this period. Jupiter and the North Node are blessing your career sector for the year or so, so changes in that area of life should be a breeze. This month’s full moon on the 23rd is also in your career sector, so look around at what’s happening that week for clues as to where to go next.



Love goddess Venus will be in Capricorn until the 17th February, showering you with blessings. Positively this is a great time to declare your love, deepen your relationship or simply get in touch with your emotions. When Venus pays her yearly visit to your part of the zodiac you also tend to feel more attractive and charismatic than usual. With this in mind, February is the perfect time to update your wardrobe, change your hairstyle, book a massage or engage in other activities designed to make you look and feel good. Communication planet Mercury will also be in Capricorn for the first half of February, helping you make plans for the year ahead and tackle all those tasks on the ‘to do’ list. Business negotiations should run smoothly throughout the month providing you genuinely understand and appreciate the other’s point of view. The February full moon in Virgo on the 23rd lights up your travel and study sector pushing you to expand your horizons and in September 2016, lucky Jupiter will be entering your career sector for a yearlong stay, giving a welcome boost to your professional and working life. With this in mind, take a long term approach and think about how seeds you plant now will bear fruit in the future!




Happy birthday Aquarius!! With Mercury, Venus and the New Moon all in Aquarius this month, it’s time for you shine. You are learning about the power of the collective and the importance of unified effort to reach a goal that benefits the group or community. As the old African proverb goes: 'If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together.'  As 2016 gets underway, think about how you could pool your gifts and talents with others and learn to be more flexible. Being a fixed sign, this attitude will not come easily, especially with the new moon forming a stressful angle to wilful Mars in Scorpio. Meanwhile, lucky Jupiter continues his year-long journey through your house of investment, inheritance and joint ventures (till September 2016) helping you manage your financial future. If you are negotiating a settlement or expecting an inheritance or payout of some sort, the outcome is likely to be in your favour – in fact your financial circumstances could change completely over the course of the year. The karmic nodal axis also entered this part of your solar chart in November, encouraging you to look at money, personal values and self-worth in a different way. Finally, February is an excellent month to spruce up your social life and make some new friends. Friends you no longer resonate with will disappear, making way for more meaningful contacts.



In November the karmic north Node joined Jupiter in your opposite sign, Virgo, putting the focus for the year ahead on personal relationships such as marriage, de facto and business partnerships. This theme is highlighted even more strongly in February with a full moon in Virgo on the 23rd pushing you to strike a balance between your own needs and the needs of significant others in the lead up to your birthday. With the Sun in Pisces conjunct fantasy-prone Neptune at this full moon, there’s bound to be a clash between your desire to chase dreams and let your imagination run wild (Pisces) vs. the need to be practical and hard-headed (Virgo). Of course these two paths are not mutually exclusive – this Virgo full moon asks you to choose a dream that’s particularly close to your heart and then take practical steps to make it come true. The Virgo-Pisces polarity also opens the pathway to healing by providing an intrinsic and intuitive connection between body and soul. Action planet Mars will be in fellow water sign Scorpio until early March making you dream of distant horizons and new pathways. Great time to plan an overseas trip or head back to school to study something new and inspirational.






August looks set to be a very exciting month for your Sagittarius. The month begins with no less than four planets (Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and retrograde Venus) in your house of overseas travel, spirituality, publishing, philosophy and study all in the creative and dynamic fire sign Leo. Even better news is that these Leo planets are linked in with revolutionary Uranus in another fire sign, Aries, meaning that whatever you want to achieve this month in any of the above-mentioned areas, you’ll have the passion, desire and courage to take action. This month’s new moon on the 15th is also in Leo and as if that weren’t enough, action planet Mars moves into Leo on the 9th for a seven week visit. Perhaps you’ll be heading off on an exciting trip or combining travel, business and/or study in some way. Or maybe you’ll be going on retreat; expanding your horizons with a new study course or overseas jaunt; starting to write that book or simply contemplating the meaning of life. You could even decide to move overseas or start up an international business. The only word of warning is that Venus will be retrograde all month in a challenging angle to Saturn which could produce some obstacles or delays. The Pisces full moon on the 30th will highlight any imbalance between your work and home life. Mercury and your ruling planet Jupiter shift into your career sector in mid-August, meaning any seeds you’ve been planting over the past year will come to fruition making the period 2015-16 an extremely fortunate one for all things professional.

Camino de Santiago - Walking the Milky Way

In 2013 I fulfilled a long held dream and walked the 800 km Camino de Santiago from the French Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela in northwest Spain. Pilgrims have been travelling the road to Santiago for over a thousand years but I was more interested in the idea that the Camino followed the path of the Milky Way past Santiago towards Cape Finisterre, the most westerly point on mainland Spain and a place revered by the Celts who built a solar altar there to worship the setting sun.Read more
