ASTROLOGY – Summer Solstice – Wednesday, June 21. 2017 … The Living is Easy….Especially when We Honor Mother Nature and All of Her Gifts

Summer Solstice

Here we are again.  Another reason to celebrate Mother Nature.  The Summer Solstice. How beautiful. Summertime.  This is when the Ancients did their rituals and ceremonies to honor Mother Earth and all that she provided for them.  They got their goodness “up close and personal”.  The bounty of nature was what they lived for and depended on.

We now go to a grocery store or market and many of us have little or no knowledge of what it takes for the food we eat to reach the shelves.  We spend many hours indoors hooked up to some technological device which is completely devoid of nature’s influence.

Open your doors, open your windows, plant some vegetables, get to a farmer’s market and celebrate all that nature provides us with.  Spend some time outdoors, take a hike, take a walk, say hello to the ocean, get in a boat.

Mother Nature is the natural healer.  The Sun is our friend.  When we feel the power of the sun we realize our own power.  We are natural creative beings.  Dr. Joan Goodall who has spent her life working with gorillas and monkeys tells us the similarities between us and the animal kingdom is so strong that we can learn from them.  An interesting concept.  There is a synchronicity and powerful connection in all of nature. The idea of that is very exciting to me.  I am always enthralled and amazed at the way nature cooperates.  As we celebrate the Summer Solstice let’s find best ways to cooperate and do all we can to be the best of who we are and what we do to share our goodness with others.

Take these next few days to examine your relationship with your inner and outer nature. With Sun traveling through the sign of Cancer from tomorrow until July 21/22 and the New Moon in Cancer on Friday; we have an opportunity to create new emotional responses to all that surrounds our life.  Cancer is a water sign considered to be the Mother of the Zodiac.  Cancer is well known for being a nurturing, caring, loving and kind mother.  Also ruled by the Moon.  Are you being your own best mother?  Are you capable of caring for yourself in a loving way so you can be the natural creative God/Goddess that the Divine wants us to be?  Slow your engine down.  Summertime is the season for paying close attention to the natural world.  We can only do that by being present in the moment to moment.  Stop the clocks.  Let the Sun warm your face.

Enjoy!  Wishing for you the ability to see the world, the planet and yourself with new eyes full of sweetness like children do with expectation and joyfulness.

Astrology Full Strawberry Moon Sagittarius – Today June 9, 2017 – Feel the Fire and Say It Anyway…With Compassion


Fired Up

To the Point

Tell the Truth to Yourself and to Others

This Full Moon in Sagittarius is going to give you the desire and confidence to tell YOUR truth. Alas your truth may be very different than someone else’s.  Remember we humans experience life, challenges, love and a myriad of situations in different ways so do your best to be kind as you express your direct, fired up, to the point, truthful concerns, desires and “wish you could be” whatever to your loved ones, friends, workmates and especially those people that drive you crazy.

There will be disappointments as Sagittarius is the idealist.  It is wonderful to have ideals as long as we realize that’s what they are.  Ideals!   Our ideals may not always be practical.

Gratitude is an attitude.  It is what becomes your life’s philosophy.  When you live your life from gratefulness, it is amazing what occurs.  Each day is an opportunity.  Be aware of all of the possibilities you can and in fact, for most of the day, you do exactly what you want to do.  Some aspect of your consciousness is making decisions for you.  All you need do is get control of the decision maker and the two of you sit down and have a talk about how you can improve on the decisions you make.  Even the ones inside your head.

So keep a low profile for today.  Be sweet and maybe even learn a new way of communicating with yourself and with others.

I am always here as your Astrological Light Beacon.  Let me help you find the way to your most passionate, peaceful and powerful self.

Namaste, Maria Francesca Triliegi

Gemini 2017 readings Maria Triliegi (002)


This is the week for realizations and affirmations and visualizations all in the name of MANIFESTATION .  This is the week for arriving at new conclusions, decisions and future visions of what you want to happen.  

I recommend you do all you can with this super duper NEW MOON in Gemini (these are the word game folks) to reinforce what you desire for yourself and the good of all your loved ones.

If you did the work of letting go of what you no longer need with the last powerful FULL MOON in Scorpio; you should be all set to start traveling down some lovely new roads.

I have a good friend who has completely changed her life and is living in a camper as she travels to new places and experiences lovely new people and places and things.  Every day she posts (with excitement no less) where she is and what she sees and feels.  I believe if we can do that; how great.  If not then do your best to begin creating these images of new experiences in your spirit and mind.  This is what visualization is all about.  

Sun in Gemini and Moon in Gemini with Jupiter in Libra and Saturn in Sagittarius. These are all kindred spirits.  Each supporting the other in some powerful way.  This is what the healing arts provides for us.  A combination of different energies coming together to support us.  For several years I have taught different courses on how to best take advantage of what the Spirit world has to offer.  One of my courses is called “USE THE TOOLS”.  You can have the best tool box in the world and yet if you don’t take them out and use them they have no value.  

So here goes…..SEE IT and SAY IT and FEEL IT and BELIEVE IT.  



NAMASTE,         310.548.1338

Cropped Scorpioscorpio1

Full Moon in Scorpio on May 10, 2017

This will be one of the most powerful Full Moons of the entire year in Scorpio, ruled by Pluto (the transformer of the zodiac).  There is a David Bowie song with the words “take your protein pills and put your helmet on”.  It is a song that refers to the astronauts going into space. At times I feel we need to do just that.  Get out of our daily lives and take a trip to different realms.

This full moon will allow us to do just that.  It is time to connect to the powerful aspects of who you are.  Going within.  Way, way within.   

Scorpio is the detective who thinks nothing of delving into the unknown.  Scorpio is the sign that doesn’t give up until the mystery is solved.  Scorpio asks a lot of questions just like a good detective.  Time to tell the truth.  And exactly what is the truth?  The truth is that each of us needs to learn to trust the deep transforming powerful messages that come directly from Spirit. 

When I listen to music I have a habit of remembering certain verses of the songs I like the most.  Etta James….“Trust in me in all you do. Have the faith I have in you.” We need to have faith in Spirit within us.  There is so much support that we receive each day from our angels, spirit guides and teachers, and don’t forget our ancestors.  Learn to turn on the right station in your head and heart.  It’s like listening to the radio.  There are a lot of stations and yet there are only certain ones we truly enjoy.  

Emotions are going to run deeper and deeper as we head towards the culmination of this full moon experience on Wednesday.  So take advantage of what you are feeling as you examine your life.  Goals you are working towards; relationships you are questioning; motivation and energy you are putting into what you want to achieve. Are you going down the right roads?  Are your goals and desires based on an old paradigm?  Are you doing what you are doing because your parents told you to?  Or following an old pattern you just got used to.  Scorpio needs to be really passionate about something and Taurus needs to get the work done.  What a combo when the Sun is in Taurus and the Moon in Scorpio.  

We too often unintentionally or even unconsciously give away our power believing that the more we do the more value it will bring.  Not always true.  How can we be sure?  I believe that every once in a while we need to check in with ourselves.  Have a truthful conversation with you.  It takes courage to change.  I remind myself the words of Ernest Holmes.  Very simple, very powerful, very effective.  “CHANGE YOUR THINKING…CHANGE YOUR LIFE”.

To change our thinking we need to realize that we are what we think.  With this Scorpio Full Moon we will have the opportunity to, as stated above, go deep within to find the clues we need to uncover the truth about our motivations.  What is driving you?  Who is driving?  Where is the destination?  

Hopefully to a beautiful, joyful, passionate and purposeful life going forward.

I am always here to support the most positive vision for your life.  I am your astrological light beacon.  All you need to do is call, text, email or telepathically send me a message:)

Blessings from the stars, the planets and the constellations.

VenusSunday, March 12, 2017 – FULL MOON IN VIRGO OPPOSITE SUN IN PISCES                                                                          VENUS RETROGRADE IN PISCES/ARIES UNTIL APRIL 15, 2017

Let the games begin!

We know what Full Moons bring.  Emotions, emotions, emotions and sometimes out of control emotions.  We know what Venus brings emotions, emotions, emotions.  The Moon is our emotional thermometer and Venus is our emotional barometer.  Each one of these two powerful planets are indicators of how we process emotional experiences; especially those that have to do with love energy.  How we love ourselves and how we love others.  How we react and respond to what we believe love is.

With this Full Moon in an earthy sign (Virgo) opposite the Sun in a watery sign (Pisces) we have an opportunity to learn what it really means to balance the emotional with the practical.  Pisces energy is fluid.  Virgo energy is contained.  Earth needs water or it gets hard and crusty.  Water needs earth or there would be floods everywhere.  So you see we need both of these elements.  To make the case for Virgo and Pisces and how each one of these signs are critical to supporting our lives; we must be aware of the boundaries necessary for the practical and emotional aspects of life to come together in perfect balance.  Full Moons bring opportunities to bring opposites together by reflecting as well as restructuring according to the signs involved.

What makes this Full Moon on Sunday even more powerful is that Venus; the planet of love and beauty will be retrograde in Pisces on Sunday adding to the Full Moon experience.  Venus retrograde is considered to be quite a beautiful thing.  It gives us an opportunity to review what it is we believe LOVE brings to our life.  When a planet goes backwards it is if we can turn around and take one more look.  With love relationships; part of what is occurring is an opportunity to reflect on who the people were that have shared their love with you in the past as well as who the people are that share love with you now and finally what is the value of that love?  Venus brings love in many ways.  Love from people, love from possessions, love from self-worth and even love from our animals.

The sign of Virgo brings discernment.  Just what we need right now.  The ability to discern what love means to us up close and personal.  So here is what you can do to get the best from this Full Moon/Venus Retrograde transit on Sunday.  Take some time to journal out what you have received with regards to love from the past lovers of your life.  What did each one bring you that has made you a better person and if you are with the same love you have always been with; answer the same question.   If you are single and want to be loved; what is it you have to share with another person?  Then look around at what it is you love in the other areas of your life.  First and foremost how much do you love yourself?  Secondly how much love is shared with your loved ones?  And moving on from there; your prized possessions; your writings; your creative ideas; your roommates if you have them; and, of course, your animals.

I guarantee that once you have done this exercise you will be able to know more about what your true heart desire.  What have you given up to get what you want from love?      We know true love can only be had with compromise.  Ask yourself if you compromise too much or not enough.  And this works for whatever and whomever we give our hearts to. By the way, reflection is best when it can support our present and future experiences.  So don’t make this exercise a pity party.  Make it a power party.  You alone are in control of your happiness thermometer and barometer.  Learn to set the temperature to give you the most quality.

Enjoy the process of discovery!  Discovering just how much you give to love and for love and much you get from what you give.  Wow. Now that’s Spirit talking.

As always the astrological sign and house placement of both the Moon and Venus in your sacred birth chart will bring you closer to understanding the effects of how this Full Moon in Virgo/Venus Rx energy can support your life.  In all the years I have done this work I truly believe that astrological transits bring possibilities!  There is always a new way to reinvent; restructure; redefine and renew.  As the title of my book reminds us “Life is Good…When You Do the Work”.  

I will be writing another blog specifically addressing when Venus goes direct in Aries on April 15th.  For now be well and know that LOVE IS ALL THERE IS!

With this Full Moon and Solar Eclipse in the sign of Leo the fiery lion/lioness we are transmuting and experiencing an initiation of sorts.  Like the snake shedding its skin.

The Indian Medicine Tarot has a very interesting and powerful way of describing transmuting energy (snake) energy.  I want to quote from their description.  It succinctly describes what I believe is happening with this important astrological transit.

“The power of snake medicine is the power of creation, for it embodies sexuality, psychic energy, alchemy, reproduction, and ascension (or immortality). The transmutation of the life-death-rebirth cycle is exemplified by the shedding of Snake’s skin. It is the energy of wholeness, cosmic consciousness, and the ability to experience anything willingly and without resistance. It is the knowledge that all things are equal in creation, and that those things which might be experienced as poison can be eaten, ingested, integrated, and transmuted if one has the proper state of mind. Complete understanding and acceptance of the male and female within each organism creates a melding of the two into one, thereby producing divine energy. This medicine teaches you on a personal level that you are a universal being. Through accepting all aspects of your life, you can bring about the transmutation of the fire medicine. This fire energy, when functioning on the material place, creates passion, desire, procreation, and physical vitality. On the emotional place, it becomes ambition, creation, resolution, and dreams. On the mental place it becomes intellect, power, charisma, and leadership. When this Snake energy reaches the spiritual plane, it becomes wisdom, understanding, wholeness and connection to Great Spirit.”

With this Leo/Aquarius compliment we have the ability to transmute whatever thoughts, ideas, activities, goals and/or dreams need some kind of transformation before we can move forward and manifest the goodness that awaits us on the other side.

When we transform or transmute anything; we must go through a process of creating some kind of change or at the least a new kind of thought experience.  Change our Thinking…..Change our Life.

Allow and Accept that you are a spiritual being having a human experience.  You are powerful and beautiful and magical.  Fire burns.  Air fans the fire.  Leo is fire and Aquarius is air.  Use these natural elements and become the magician of your life.

The solar eclipse is adding more fuel to the fire giving us more energy to transmute and transform.   This is a very exciting opportunity.

The astrological transits, new and full moons and eclipses are all gifts we are given freely from the Divine Universal Star System.  Planets, constellations, stars and asteroids all cooperating to support our lives spiritually, emotionally and physically.  All we are asked to do is pay attention and give them our gratitude.  We look through our telescopes and binoculars for these awe inspiring events.  If they are pleasing to look at; think about how powerful they are when we use them to support our life.  And remember the energy from this transit will remain open for our use for the next two days.

Sending peaceful thoughts and always reminding you that I am here as your Astrological Light Beacon to support the most powerful, passionate and positive vision for your life.

2017 . Year of Sharing Love and Kindness


I started this message yesterday on New Year’s Eve day 2016.  I was hoping to get it out before the New Year.  The more I thought about 2016 the more sad, confused, mad and unsure of the future I became.  So I decided to wait until this morning, the first day of 2017 to share my astrological as well as intuitive message regarding the year ahead.

When I woke up I did what I always do at the beginning of the day.  I opened the shutters in my living room and found that the sun is out and the birds are flying and the air is crisp and the rain made everything look alive again.  This alone is encouraging.  Then I made a cup of coffee with my favorite beans and the smell of the coffee made from beans that are grown by some farmer somewhere warmed my spirit.  Then I did my yoga practice.  And so it goes.  I was reminded of what I do love and enjoy about life on planet earth.

2017 will be the year to fall in love with all that we enjoy close and personal.  The simple pleasures of our day to day.  Everyone has a different vision and version of “up close and personal”.  The goal for 2017 is to truly pay attention to what is important and move on from there.

2017 brings much of what was left over from 2016.  We all know the uncertainty and unrest that still exists all over our planet.  From the political fiascoes we are experiencing to the continuing wars that are killing innocent people to now being told that some of what is being shared may not be real.  Fake news.  Yikes!  What to believe?  Who to believe?  Who to trust?  Where do we, the everyday folks, go to feel secure?

Excerpt from my book  “Life is Good: When You Do the Work”……….the essay is called “Pursuing Our Own True Belief System” 

“it may be time to tune into our personal intuitive information station.  In order to do that we must be able to see the whole picture.  It is unfortunate that most of our mainstream news media brings only the sensational and negative information about what is occurring on our planet.  If there is any good news it is usually found at the bottom of the page.  It is important that we make a conscious positive intention to search for our own truth.  We can determine what we need to be informed and enjoy life in the day to day by connecting with our own meditative and intuitive thoughts and ideas that can support our own best interests”.

Meditation, yoga, prayer, good food, good friends, rest and exercise.  This is a good start. And there will be planetary support in 2017!  Jupiter, the planet that brings benefits is traveling through the sign of Libra throughout most of 2017.  Libra is the lover of humanity.  Libra wants harmonious relationships.  Libra wants peace and harmony.  This is the sign that will be prominent with regards to supporting the sharing of love and kindness however and wherever we can.  Saturn, the planet that brings lessons and challenges, will continue in Sagittarius.  The hopeful sign that looks for the ideals in life.

This is the perfect setup for each of us to take some kind of action.  One would ask “what can I do about it”? I have troubles of my own.  I have loved ones to take care of.  I have financial obligations.  I have health issues.  I have children or parents that need me.   Yes, yes, yes it is true we all have personal responsibilities. And yet we are all a part of Mother Earth’s Universal Family.

The Universe is powerful and we as part of the Universe are powerful as well.  So find a cause that is close to your heart.  The environment, abused women and children, the homeless, animals, political organizations, addiction, spiritual organizations.  There is so much that is needed.  And there are billions of people on the planet.  If each one of us truly focused on one area to support; we would feel so much better about ourselves and be able to make a difference. This is the only way.  The saying “be the change you want to see” has NEVER been more true than it is right now.  And that’s not FAKE news folks!  I advocate that we all choose something and dedicate ourselves to it in any way we can.  Time, energy, new ideas, financial support.  Even the smallest can be the fiercest.

I struggle with using the word “warrior” although there are peaceful warriors.  These are folks that fight the good fight by doing good.  I want to be one of those.  A peaceful warrior who is willing to spend each day thinking good thoughts and supporting Mother Earth in some form or fashion.  It is doable.  All it takes is dedication.

And with that I wish for all of us the spiritual support, strength of purpose, peaceful approach and a joy of living in the light in 2017.
