Mercury Meetings January 24-28

Mercury has been busy since moving into business-minded Capricorn on January 11 (and of course I had to post on Wednesday/Mercredi/Mercury day). Over the next week it has magical meetings scheduled with Pluto, Jupiter, Uranus, and Chiron between January 24 through January 28. Mercury rules the realms of communication, thinking, and analyzing and when in Capricorn values being to the point, methodological, and choosing words carefully. As the intellectual planet connects with different planets this week, it may spark different elements of our perception. Mercury asks us to consider and connect with our own logos. Consider is one of my favorite words as it comes from Latin considerare perhaps

Commitment & Contentment :: New Moo{n}th Capricorn

NEW MOON 26 DEGREES CAPRICORN 6:17 P.M. PT/7:17 P.M. MT/9:17 P.M. ET/ While we all know the new moon is a time of beginnings and do over, in its purest sense it is also a new lunar month full of its own themes that peak at the full moon and wane with the next phase of lunar cycle. The year doesn't really feel like it starts until the first New Moon...and this New Moon couldn't be more Capricorny if it tried! With Venus, Sun, Moon, Pluto, Black Moon Lilith, Mercury, and Saturn all hanging out in the Earthy sign ruled by Saturn. I see this as inviting us into stability in our relationships (Venus), transformative process (Pluto), depth of feminine (Lilith), communication (Mercury), and legacy

The Howl Blessing

I often spend the full moon howling on my roof...perhaps wanting to connect with my wolf nature, or perhaps feeling lonely under the bright sky. For a long time, scientists didn’t understand why wolves howled though according to Barry Holstun Lopez , an author and researcher, howling happens the most in the winter months because of courtship and breeding. They have also found wolves do not howl at the moon specifically but that they tend to be more active on brighter nights. Many studies have come out saying there are many reasons why wolves howl including finding a mate, assembling the pack, or sending a warning. A Christian Science Monitor article noted points out there is “a correlation

About Me

Hi, I'm Rebecca (aka Wild Witch of the West), a San Francisco-based archetypal astrologer and writer.  For more than a decade I've been deep diving in the astrology world helping clients connect more to their life purpose and their soul. Pre-astro geek and coming out of the "broom" closet, I received my Master's degree in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness and wrote my thesis on the human connection to the stars. I offer individual and group astrology readings.


"Rebecca is amazing, hands down - you won't be disappointed in seeing her! She's warm, wise, witchy and intuitive, while also managing to be  practical and straightforward with a grounded energy that immediately puts you at ease.

I've never met anyone with such detailed knowledge of astrology, but the magic of Rebecca's readings is in combining astrological archetypal themes with a profound understanding of human nature. The themes she brought forward in my natal chart reading were spot on, and some nearly moved me to tears, long-buried hopes and dreams that I haven't dared to think about in quite some time.

I came away from our session with much more insight into myself, and some ideas that I'll be marinating on for months to come."
