Libra/Scorpio Cusp Irish Katie McGrath, Morgana of Merlin fame, has Venus, ruler of Libra, conjunct Mars.

2014 started with a back-to-back series of retrogrades involving Venus, Mercury, Mars. We are now in the third part of the series, Mars retrograde through May 19, 2014. Read More!  Please also see Fall-Winter 2013-14 Mercury, Venus, Mars Retrogrades

March 1 Mars Retrograded in Libra the day after Mercury directed Feb 28! Mercury in Aquarius electrified the connections; Mars is taking action on them, warms the Spirit! In Libra balancing, equalizing, evening the playing field. Mars in Libra fights for rights, cultural integration, beauty. Mars leads, cajoles, grumbles, fights, seduces, threatens, has courage, inspires! He invites you to take a first step, but if you don’t get going will quickly leave you in the dust for more return on the effort. If you don’t see it now, they will find someone who does. They might come back to see if you are ready yet, but don’t count on it. Your job will be to catch up! No sleeping dogs! This is a time for vigorous relationships, forays into new business options, restoring balance to your health that you may be a worthy partner! The first relationship is you with yourself. Do your part. When you are ready, seek spirited companions who want what you want, who celebrate you for exactly who you are! But, truly don’t expect them to be just like you! You will each give your part gloriously independently!

This Mars retrograde is important like no other because it is going back to fill the fourth point of the extraordinary Cardinal Grand Square April 20 to 23. This is not just any Grand Square, because it is formed by three outer planets! They are taking position at the 13th degrees of Aries (Mars’ sign), Cancer and Capricorn. Mars, the LightBearer, The Flame, The Torch, will be at 13 degrees of Libra. The Initiation will cross activate since Mars naturally rules Aries, the sign opposite Libra. Mars is independent while Libra wants to partner. Uranus in Aries can be contradictory in that Aries is one person, the Hero, versus Uranus that can be all of Humanity. Or is that One for All and All for One?! Jupiter in Cancer is at cross purposes when one wants to stay home and the other likes an extended trip as far away as possible. Many a daring move will be made. Pluto in Capricorn insists on restoration or demolition of the rules. No mercy. What’s a good Capricorn to do?! Everything is perfectly out of control!

In daily affairs, Mars involves sex, hot immediate sex. An old lover may temporarily put some fire in your belly! Your vehicle may need a swift fix – heater, ignition, starters, filters, timing. Be cautious about buying a new car; get the best warranty. Revise your exercise regime until it suits, and keep adjusting it as you get better at it. Take another look at what makes you lose it. Is that attitude working for you, giving you peace? Is it about time you stood up, or have you been predictably hair trigger grouchy? Is an old injury causing you pain out of the blue? Time for a new look at the old devil. Go for the cause this time. What was the first time it ever happened to you, and what caused that?!  Things have changed, it may be time to renew a contract, an acquaintance. Take action on a situation that has been on the back burner. Fire and heat are the Mars mediums. Be sure your home and landscape are fire safe. Double check heaters, vents, attics weather stripping. Cosmetic surgeries are better left until later. Remodel only as you can afford. Just know it may cost more and take more time than you hoped. You could wait, do it later. Have all changes dated and signed or you may find yourself in court.

Libra requests Grace. May the action taken make you want to be a part of it. It must hold promise of blessings to come, beauty to embrace. May there be the surprise and delight at being the first of their kind, with courage and conviction! Strike a new type of balance, a pound of feathers, a pound of red rose petals. Perhaps venturing to the West will hold more answers than anticipated. Whether divorce or happiness, a marriage on the margins, relationships change. Cosmetics make magic. Theater, fine arts and symphonies are exhilarating. You may delight in learning from a first time partnership whether personal or business.

Buy a grand beautiful hat, cap, gown or cape; walk the tightrope, cross the divide, merry be!

Full Moon Aries Libra Eclipse 2014

March 30 at 11:45 AM Pacific! It’s at 9 Aries 59

See  FULL Moon

Aries is an energetic sign, new moons usually not so much, but this one is likely to be spectacular, zig zag electric! It is right at the point of the 3 outer planet TSquare. It is the last New Moon before the upcoming April 20 to 23 Cardinal Grand Square! Get things battened down, put the lids on tight, or release what needs to be FREE! Time for Agni Yoga, the Breath of Fire! If you can’t stop it, get on it and ride it!

Aries rules the head! Get your cranial bones in order. Nerve centers are here; keep them free of debris thinking, available for clean decisions. Your face is a major communications device. Let it be in alignment with your thinking and your thinking be pure White Light. Hear the sounds of Spirit, the needs behind the words being spoken. Headaches, flare ups of sinusitis, tooth and gums may need attention signaling dietary changes needed. Have care about accidents or injuries to your head and face. Be mindful when and how you say things.

Moon, Sun, and Uranus are squaring Pluto!

  • Moon square Pluto – Moon is close kin with Pluto, both water planets. Moon nurtures, so Pluto tells secrets feeling safe, protected by the infinite Mother. If Mother gets stifling, snoopy, Pluto retreats. Learn and respect your proper ‘distance.’ Moon can be scared Pluto will be sneaky and undermine the home. Either one can be fearful or greedy about money. Both of them generally like to make it grow. Know where the monies are and keep all paperwork up to date.
  • Sun square Pluto – Sun and Pluto rule signs that challenge each other, Leo and Scorpio. Sun loves that bold light of day; Pluto is more underground, private. Sun likes to spend Pluto’s money, and often Pluto doesn’t mind. They enjoy making it, and supporting a sincere bright light. Each is possessive in their own way. Flirty Sun has that sparkle in their eye; Pluto can glower when thwarted. Pluto has natural charisma they can’t help; Sun is ferocious if you mess with their partner.
  • Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn – This aspect has been challenging (Aries) the whole world since 2010. Economic downfall has changed us all. Lost jobs, homes. Dramatic weather - Fukushima, ravenous fires, southern snow, western water shortages. The Internet (Uranus), the great educator, has revealed information, secrets (Pluto) leveled the playing field. Entire nations are changing. Shocking statistics are clearing our thinking to what’s real (Capricorn). Let’s get with it.

Moon Sun, and Uranus are squaring Jupiter!

  • Moon square Jupiter – More is better or not. Housework? Not. Travel? Yes! Moon nurtures, though in Aries, the trick is to nurture yourself. Independence is cherished. Yet still, who doesn’t appreciate a little comforting from time to time? And Jupiter expands, loves plentiful joyous abundance! Cancer can be a homebody, even timid, conservative as their Mothers, so Jupiter scares them a bit by asking them to frolic! They both love education! Cancer is a knowledge sponge forever, and Jupiter when not teaching, is writing the tome, or at least the travel blog, leading the tour!
  • Sun square Jupiter – Both fire planets, what one doesn’t do or dare, the other will! Racing, sports, gambling, horses, spending, could get way out of hand! But it sure was fun! Sun gets into its ego about opinions, and no planet out does Jupiter for opinions! And Jupiter has a Higher Source to validate it, been everywhere, so they know. Sun has merely made up its own mind. Both are generously spirited. Sun gives with all its heart and radiance. Jupiter is so lucky, and just knows there is more where that came from! These two are teachers too. Both speak with authority, and are dramatic storytellers.
  • Uranus square Jupiter – Jupiter is the faster moving planet, so brings its broad vision, warmth, easy going style, to planetary matters. Jupiter’s self righteous quality can stir the masses, to stand like Jupiter believes they can, for things they have been too frightened to stand for before. This can be frighteningly radical fanaticism to long needed change that has taken hundreds of years to come by. Jupiter makes a serious connection like this to Uranus every 3+ years, but not like this one, while Uranus and another outer planet are lined up as well. This is a time of PLANETARY INITIATION.

The only other immediately upcoming aspect in the New Moon chart is Mercury trining Saturn. Mercury carries the Word of the TimeLord Saturn. Saturn makes commitment, Soul agreement to the mission. Certain promises will be kept. Things that no longer serve will drop from priority as more important and timely needs become apparent. Loyalty prevails, all have a part.

All of this is in preparation for the April Cardinal Grand Square. The highlighted factor this time is the New Moon conjunct Uranus, the planet at the point of the three outer planet TSquare! That planet acts as seeker and sniffer, curiously extending from the two base planets, in this case the Jupiter opposition Pluto axis. It also acts as sender and emissary, transmitting the base knowledge beyond its usual grounds, pressing its imprint simply because it exists. Other times it is receiver, even against its will, yet, there it is, learning, shaken, excited, changed forevermore.

Uranus is the planet of freedom, evolution, genius, inventor. It is a quivery planet of Aquarius whose symbol is the symbol of electricity. Learning to wield this force, as giver and receiver, is a major tool in the modern citizen’s toolbox. Learning how to radically and instantly change directions keeps us out of the bullet’s path and into magical places and forces. We find other amazing Beings on unpredictable Paths, seemingly unguided, yet that electricity symbol also goes straight ahead! Uranus was also the god Ouranos, the god of the Heavens, the Stars, ALL the Suns! Even on a moonless night there is starlight. It’s not ever truly dark even when there be clouds….

Aries 2014 New Moon Astrology Chart

Back to Top

April 15 at 0:42 AM Pacific – 25 Libra 16
That’s April 14th in Hawaii

YES! Our first eclipse of 2014′s four, is fully visible from almost all of North America!

Just six days before the Cardinal Grand Square April 20 to 23, this is the immediately preceding Lunar event. The Lunar Eclipse stands planetarily alone in this chart at 25 degrees, but it is within 3 degrees of the north/south node axis, 2 degrees of fixed star Spica, and one off from the Galactic Center at 26 degrees. It is independent of the Grand Square taking place at 13 degrees though the Grand Square is potently part of this chart.

These are the Nodes of the Moon, more intense, more pure perhaps, that they along the Eclipse axis. Sun is holding the fort at the South Node, Dragon’s Tail, considered a place of the Past, unfinished business when a planet is in the same sign. The Sun is the full strength Light of our sky, most able to withstand a relapse, a fall back. The Warrior has already proven himself. No longer needing to do battle, he is the King. Full Moons are always a requestioning our masculine/feminine balance as they go through each sign. Moon herself is at the North Node, Dragon’s Head. She is considered to rule our Past, past lives, maternal ancestors. She has skills that require no thought whatsoever. Many consider the North Node to be a place where we have some fear as we venture into uncharted territory. Who better than Moon, the Great Mother, to hold our hand as we meet the new levels, people of unknown ways and powers? She is intuitive, comforting, considerate of all, guide and guardian.

April 14, the day before our eclipse, Mercury goes through the outer planet Grand Square points! He squares Jupiter 11:32 AM Pacific, conjuncts the T point Uranus 4:15 PM, squares Pluto 9:12 PM. Be open to a wider range of information; allow a break down of communications so everyone can get away to think. Don’t expect a clean decision. Let time find its own way. This may be light bulb time, pure genius! The ideas, answers so radical they are hard to accept, or you have been waiting all your life for this! Some things you may need to guard, to copyright, patent. Others are simply too private. People might literally think you are crazy, don’t even comprehend. Have good sense about who you tell what; keep the cloaking device handy. Probably not the best time to make financial or partnership contracts, wills. Things are not as they seem, and they won’t be for awhile. There could be extreme points of view that may open your eyes. You had no idea.

It’s a dry run. If dispassionate logical curious Mercury can navigate it, investigates the nooks and crannies, we can get a more intimate feel for it, be a tad more prepared. We can get a dialogue going with ourself and others. We can negotiate more of what we need in advance, help put more puzzle pieces in place for a quicker fit as we progress the next nine days.

Mars is still Retrograde in Libra! You can see in the chart it is already making the Cardinal Grand Square. At 16 degrees it is only 3 degrees from 13, the degree of the exact Grand Square. As Mercury brings things to mind, considers pros and cons, Mars is willing to take action! It might be with a placard at the protest, advocating for education or rights. There may be a restlessness, wanting to free range and never return. Oh, wait, but there are some good friends and certain commitments that are good to do, maybe some kids that love us. Take a midnight walk or ride or two and talk with your ancestors. Be cautious about taking unnecessary risks just to prove a point that is already true. Check in with your accountant if you feel a lie or a cheat coming on, face it now. Ask your questions, get the proof. If your lover isn’t happy, what’s up? Share the responsibility. Yes, there are hurt frightened broken people stumbling around out there unable to do the right thing. You don’t have to be their victim. Protect yourself, forgive as you can – yourself and them. Don’t expect one talk to be it. It’s going to take some time and many talks. Go easy. People are usually more tender than they appear. Especially the tough looking ones. They think they have a lot to protect. Maybe they do.

Fixed Star Spica, the brightest star in constellation Virgo, considered the most benefic of all the fixed stars, is 2 degrees west of the Eclipsed Moon, at 23 Libra! Spica will be blue while the Moon is crimson. Per Astrotheme: ‘Spica, the Ear of the Wheat [Virgin's Spike], gives a taste for the countryside, or for arts related to products of the earth. It endows with sculpture talents, as well as an inclination for agriculture and cooking. It brings success, riches, love for the arts and science, erudition, and precision.’ Kenneth Johnson says ‘Hindu tradition asserts that natives of Spica are elegant, charming, charismatic, sensual, seductive, creative, clever, and excellent conversationalists, though with a tendency to be self-centered or shallow.’ In horary astrology, old traditional astrology, ‘Spica is traditionally considered as an oasis of good fortune in the otherwise parched path (Via Combusta) from 15 degrees Libra to 15 degrees Scorpio.’ From July 25th, 2012 until January 2014, Spica was in a series of 21 occultations [eclipses] by our Moon. Fully Spica infused, our Moon is traveling on, though still in the glow.

Libra is a masculine air sign ruled by feminine Venus. Spica is associated with Virgo the Virgin, feminine. The Moon is feminine. Mars is the masculine principle, these days Venus’s champion in Libra. Mars started in Libra Dec 7, 2013, continues through July 25, 2014, seven plus months, an unusually long time due to its retrograde. We are in a blending time, asserting the masculine more gracefully, lovingly, standing up for the feminine. Spica adds good fortune. Ballet. Divine dance. Blessed be!

The GALACTIC CENTER is at 26 Sagittarius. The Full Moon Sun is trine the GC. The Libra Moon sextiles it. The Galactic Center is considered a Galaxy Gateway, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Aries is undaunted! This is the volume they live for! And, Exchange is the word, because Mars, Aries’ planet in Libra, is ready to spring to connect, negotiate smoothly, move the goods and people along as they arrive on the Starships! Integration goes well. Sagittarius sees through the wormhole and slithers past the problems to a satisfying outcome.

Aries 2014 Highlights!  

Mars is THE significant planet not only because it is the ruler of Aries, but because it fills the fourth spot to make the Cardinal Grand Square April 20 to 23! In that Grand Square, Uranus, the planet of awakening and r/evolution, humanity, is in ARIES, Mars its RULER too!!!   Mars is still retrograde in Libra, and will be until May 19, all through Aries and Taurus. This is the third part of the 3 planet series of back to back retrogrades – Venus, Mercury, Mars! Feb 25 Jupiter squared Uranus the 2nd time, and Jupiter is holding the square continuously until the 3rd and last time April 20, part of the Cardinal Grand Square. Jupiter is opposite Pluto at the end of Aries, exact April 20. Uranus square Pluto continues as a backdrop aspect throughout Aries, making its 5th of the seven squares April 21. Please see Special Edition 2014! for the year’s major Astro*Logical aspects!

Aries, Ever Young!
Dawn Reignites the Fire Every Day!

Aries Sunrise Yoga, New Dawn

Whether you sit, stand or just stop a few seconds while you are walking, steep in that pure Aries moment, Sunrise. Breathe it in, deeply, smile as you breathe out. It might be by the ocean, over the mountains, over the sink through your kitchen window. Out of the Void, darkness, with raised arms, palms open, and an open heart, be infused with radiance, then go on into your new day of Light.

We think of Aries as being on the fast track, but it starts with that poised presence at the threshold, the suspenseful moment of dawn’s fire.  It’s first Light, the Light we can see to walk by, know where to go. There is a reverence, grateful renewal of devotion, an infusion, a merger of power, at-one-ment with the solar battery.

Aries represents the beginning. The sacrificial lamb was symbolically left on the sunrise altar, the luminous Leader ram goes forth. It might take all day and into the night, many nights, but the Lantern of Light in our hearts is carried, the candle flame shows the way. We go one by one, or many together, in a vigil of Peace or burn-it-down purifying Revolution. Ashes are great fertilizer.

Purification is one of Aries’ specialties. We have an amazing symbol of it in the iconic Burning Man celebration in the, of course, August desert – home of heat and sun on fire! There is dancing, literally playing with fire, getting acquainted with the fire that impassions each other’s Souls. In cold desert nights, fire does as has always been, gives heat, a place to cook food, protection, a gathering place, a source of generational stories, survival.

Fire is a crucible, melting, merging metals. What’s different becomes a union, a whole new element or Being. Fire’s alchemy is a transformation. Aries is Ignition!

[FYI: Mar 1NEW YORK DAILY NEWS reported Burning Man's 24th year 38,000 X $380 tickets sold out in 44 minutes. That's $14,440,000. Non-profit or not, that's a LOT of $. Tickets are being resold for up to $1000, and a last-minute sale by the organizers in August, called the OMG Sale, makes another 1,000 tickets available with registration starting at the end of July - no price stated. Oh, and this year, to reduce traffic, road damage and because of greater pressure from the Bureau of Land Management and the Nevada Department of Transportation, the event is requiring $40 vehicle passes.]

NEW MOON Feb 28, 11:59 PM Pacific at 10 Pisces 39!
March 1 for Mountain, Central and Eastern zones

See  FULL Moon

Mercury shall have just barely gone Direct (out of Retrograde) at 6 AM Pacific. The New Moon is at the mid of Mercury’s Station, Mercury appearing not to be moving at all. Be prepared for a holding pattern that starts 3 days before the New Moon until 3 days after. Take it in. Concentrate, focus, absorb, understand. As Mercury turns, lean forward, act on your insights. Mercury in Aquarius assesses the quality of your connection, who you are connected with, whether the connection serves your community as well as celebrating you! It wants a lively exchange, a willingness to try cutting edge possibilities, and to think for oneself. Right alliances make a difference. Wild and crazy is entertaining, but also consciously seek the ones with mojo and ability to get results!

This New Moon has a huge water emphasis. Sun, Moon, Chiron, Neptune in Pisces, Neptune in its own sign. Jupiter in Cancer. Water is known for emotions, sometimes rampaging, other times calm as a glassy lake on a windless day. Calm is an emotion too. Water is ever observant,  often silently, with deep insight. Because they see the nuances afoot, they are good at reading cycles and outcomes, turns of directions, instantly.

The Moon conjuncts Neptune, the planet of Pisces 3:17 PM Pacific. Artist or mediator, surfer or savior, take some time out for contemplation of your intent, your place among us. Retune to your Source. This is a once-a-month aspect, but this time happens to precede the New Moon, so it’s a refinement preparing you for the New Moon’s finishing her cycle, beginning anew refreshed. You may find yourself entering a spiritual practice, or taking time out to rest, for a walk on the beach, a swim. Tune up your studio, get out the art and beauty supplies, turn on the sound, make a film!

Good Fortune! Preceding our New Moon, during the day of, first Sun then Moon make the trine with Jupiter! Sun at 8:05 PM, Moon at 11:44 PM, just 15 minutes before our New Moon! Sun and Moon are referred to as the Lights. Jupiter amplifies, turns up the optimism, and is considered Lucky, and trines are considered to be blessings in action! Sun in Pisces with Jupiter in Cancer, reads like a fairy tale. Pisces is dreamer, maker of music, mediates with the possibilities of your very Soul. The Sun in Pisces lights places that have lain dormant, shy of discordancy, yet stirred in spite of itself, enchanted by Circe’s call. Armed with holy herbs, rescue yourself, enjoy what’s naturally yours.

Jupiter in Cancer makes the journey home worthwhile. There are tales to tell, volumes of learning to be cherished that are magnificent in perspective to the Past. Illustrate, photograph, write, publish that book! Mothers may be exalted, children protected. Schisms may become mergers as the option for forgiveness is possible.

Moon in Pisces Pisces is one in of the most sensitive signs the Moon can be in. Every nuance is recorded. What seems like low volume to others, may be high volume to them. What is missed by others is 100% apparent to them. They can be guardians, Watchers of the Keep, noting shadows within shadows. Listen to them. Fine tuning is their forte. They can predict from the slightest twitch in the Universe. They can be the kindest, compassionate beyond words, unless you commit a mortal sin. Then they can become a tidal wave of reform for the underdog who can’t speak for themselves. Repent. Sincerely. Make amends. They do believe in mercy, and can be nurturing when you need it most.

Uranus in Aries is the 4th planet strongly involved, semi sextile the New Moon in exact degree! Though a semi sextile is considered a minor aspect, I have seen them be powerful involving health and wealth. Jupiter squared Uranus exactly Feb 25, 3 days before our New Moon, and is in a continuous close square until April 20. What’s in this New Moon will ride with it. Challenges in friendships and family, abrupt changes involving lots of people, weather.

The Sun is conjunct Chiron Feb 26 to Mar 3. Chiron sextiled Pluto in Capricorn exactly also on Feb 25, for the 5th and last time. At this time it’s personal. Put your heart into your healing. Work your life in a good way. Pay attention to those Pisces intuitions. Admit false premises and get beyond them. Be guided by heroes and heroines!

This Moon has so many important aspects preceding it, and within hours, on March 1 Mars retrogrades at 8:24 AM Pacific! Mars, as is Mercury, is in Station – virtually standing still from our point of view on Earth. With both Mercury and Mars in stations, there may be a lot of inner action rather than striding forward, and New Moons are naturally more quiet dark nights. Don’t be afraid to hold your horses if you aren’t quite sure of your direction yet. Mars is in Libra square Libra’s ruler Venus, now in Capricorn. Assess the Balance. Consider the consequences of forcing through versus reasonable responsibility, respect for the time it really takes. As well as lobbying for what you want, in behalf of others perhaps, give them also a chance to come to you. Bide your time. Build your strengths. Keep house. Be poised. Open some doors, graciously extend some invitations.

Pisces 2014 NEW MOON Astrology Chart

FULL MOON March 16 at 10:08 AM Pacific – 26 Virgo 02 

Mars is now Retrograde in Libra going all the way back to the 9th degree! It will have an extended and powerful 13 day engagement in the Cardinal Grand Square culminating April 20/21, continuing through 22/23. See the red triangle? Mars will fill the 4th point. April 22, Mars will make the square to Jupiter, with ALL the 4 planets at the corners of the Grand Square at 13 degrees. The 13th degree can be potent, considered a ‘critical’ degree by many astrologers. It represents gateways, not necessarily bad luck at all. Sometimes things come to a head, there is a crisis, a significant change. In this case, being in a challenging configuration, it would be hard to separate the cause, the critical degree or the troublemaker Grand Square. Cardinal signs are noted for taking action, so one way or another, don’t expect to be placidly standing around if your chart has factors close to or at the 13th degree. What you bring to this Full Moon will be part of your contribution to April events.

Mars is significant in this Full Moon because it is at the same degree as the Full Moon, 26, and 26 is the degree of the Galactic Center! Mars is semi-sextile Mama Moon in Virgo, trying to politely push her along to get things done, free some of her time to socialize with new people, find new solutions, unclutter the pathways. Mars is inconjunct askew from Father Sun in Pisces. Pisces can shrink back from abrupt action, yet understands Mars may be well intended. Perhaps it is just the inspiration and encouragement needed when in the right dose. Pisces is a believer, and Mars is a champion! For the same cause, they can change the world!

The GALACTIC CENTER is at 26 Sagittarius, at potent cross axis with the Full Moon. In mutable signs, they consider possibilities, are genius at adapting to circumstance. Modifications save the day. The Galactic Center is considered a Galaxy Gateway, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Keep an open mind. They will say it can’t be done, but mutables are made for surprises! Virgo gathers the pieces, will refine the details that make the difference. Sagittarius sees through the wormhole and slithers past the problems to a satisfying outcome. Lucky, that. Pisces never doubts; they always knew. And that Mars in Libra hanging about brings good people to the mix. They have just the right challenging questions that make it not only successfully life changing, but so lovely you are thankful too! Pure magic! Since Mercury trined Mars the 14th (Friday), you may have already spoken with a potential partner, probably on the 12th.

Venus in Aquarius, Jupiter in Cancer and Uranus in Aries though in different degrees, are in a concurrent set offering intriguingly remarkable options. Might seem odd at first, but tweak them a bit and see what shakes! They won’t be GrandMa’s solutions! You will have to prove their feasibility to Virgo, and favor the budget. Pisces sees through glitter, so the intention must be pure, for the good of all. Jupiter in Cancer enjoys shaping the dough, playing with cycles of shape-shifting. Move things around, there may be a good fit, brighter days.

Pisces - Jon Bon Jovi has Moon Capricorn (builders), 4 planets Aquarius (humanity), Sun and Venus in Pisces!

Jon Bon Jovi, Mar 2, 1962 Pisces, is the first Founding Ambassador of the Habitat for Humanity Ambassador program. No surprise. He has Moon Capricorn (builders), 4 planets Aquarius (humanity), Sun and Venus in Pisces (compassion for the underdog). And, he is the lead singer and namesake for the rock band Bon Jovi! Bon Jovi is one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time, having sold more than 130 million records worldwide, and performed more than 2,700 concerts in over 50 countries for more than 34 million fans. Bon Jovi’s charitable works focus on the issue of homelessness and include the creation of the Philadelphia Soul Charitable Foundation; the launch of a limited edition outerwear collection with Kenneth Cole New York (with proceeds benefiting HELP USA); partnering with Project H.O.M.E. in Philadelphia; and a sustained partnership with Habitat for Humanity. Jon says ‘From their relief efforts in the wake of the tsunami and Hurricane Katrina, to the thousands of houses they construct around the world, Habitat for Humanity builds homes, lives, and dreams. Handing over the keys to the families who have worked to earn them has afforded me some of the proudest, most uplifting moments of my life.’ His chart. Bless him.

Pisces 2014 Highlights!

Pisces, the Angel of the Sea of Life!

We all wander, sometimes anonymously, in this Sea of Life. Sometimes we are in the shallows, others times we have no idea where shore is, maybe it is gone, forever. Light comes and goes, in time dark as welcome as the other. Magical or mortifying, it transforms us, drop by drop, until our Spirit is cleanly surrendered.

Lost and Found, abandoned only to be Saved. Life is often PROfound, alongside merciless ridiculousness. Have mercy on our Soul! We touch each other in a moment’s chance meeting at the bus stop. We visit Sacred places. All in a day’s work for a Pisces.

Sound, imagery, dance. From buoy bells to rock and roll, from atrocity to repentance, from exhaustion to fervor, we share this enchanting evolution, sometimes alone on an island, sometimes in a massive dense school of fishes swishing along, silvery, as one. Our faith in each other carries us on.

Union of Souls. There comes a time when we know what the other is thinking. Our other Self. The One that is longing for what was the unconscious dream. Special Beings come into our life and things turn. We catch up with ourselves. We recognize the purity within. A synchronicity, now to next, shows us the sparkling passageway. Out of the cave, out of the tunnel, into a glorious iridescence.

Evolution will always throw her challenges as we learn the new steps, how to synthesize the new with the old. Sometimes we regress, review, and just like a Retrograde, we are still always going forward in time. It’s only an illusion. Breathe deep, open your mind, love with all your Spirit. You find the Way, the Way finds you.

Live in the Vision.

Grand Square Brussels' Grand Place Flower Carpet

Let your Grand Square grow as vibrantly as the flower carpet that graces the central square of Brussels’ Grand Place!

March 20 update note – I consider this set to be so important. The Cardinal Grand Square signs, Aries/Libra, Cancer/Capricorn, are the signs of the quarters of the year, each inaugurating new seasons. Aries is the first of all the signs, the sign of Initiation, leadership. Mars, it’s planet, fills the fourth point, actually making the Grand Square! Uranus, the planet of awakening and r/evolution, humanity, is in ARIES,  Mars is Aries’ RULER!!! I see this time as a PLANETARY INITIATION, especially since one of the aspects, Uranus square Pluto, transformation, is in an unprecedented 7 times sequence that started in 2010, and, we have THREE outer planets, of 12, 84, and 248 year cycles, lined up at the SAME DEGREE  on the same day! 

This current potent set started back in January….

Allowing a 5 degree range, Jupiter retrograded in Cancer opened the year starting a Wedge pattern (opposition base with a trine/sextile third point planet) Jan 6, and activated the Uranus square Pluto for an extended time! It was opposite Pluto at 12 degrees Jan 31, trine Chiron at 11 degrees Feb 5. Chiron held the energy as it sextiled Pluto at 13 degrees, the 5th of five times, Feb 25.  That same day, Jupiter having been slowly retrograding, for the 2nd time, and intensely in a same degree station, squared Uranus at 10 degrees, turned direct only 5 days later, makes the 3rd, last of 3 squares to Uranus April 20 at 13 degrees! It opposes Pluto at 3:58 PM Pacific! It is making a 5 minute, not degrees (60 minutes in a degree), exact outer planet T Square with the Uranus/Pluto square all day the 20th! April 21, Uranus squares Pluto the 5th of the seven times. You see how tight this pattern is. Plus, April 8, Mars retrograde in Libra has come back, forming a 13 day Grand Cardinal Square! April 20/21, Mars now at 14 Libra, is the pepper in the pot, making it a hot one degree CARDINAL GRAND SQUARE! And it isn’t over until Mars finishes on the 23rd. This one won’t be swept under the rug! In order:

  • Jan 31 and Feb 5 Jupiter, Chiron, Pluto Wedge was first – Secrets will out, healing will happen, plans will be made. Businesses are adjusting, new opportunities available. Move and learn with the new times! The past is the past; create new patterns, practice, practice, practice, and stick to them! Step up to the plate, you can do it!
  • Feb 25 Chiron sextile Pluto - Perfect time to let go of fear of power and success, betrayals, jealousy, spite, scorn, revenge. Time to let go of denial, do honest business with yourself and others. Capricorn and Pisces combine realism and intuition. Choices can be dead on accurate with no wasted time!
  • Feb 25 to April 20 Jupiter square Uranus - You could run away, far, far away, but it won’t get the job done.  Not usually. But if necessary to save yourself until you are stronger, do it. You may lose some friends and find others in unexpected places. Shed alliances that are no longer working. You have been growing; live your new status!
  • April 20, 21  The 13 Day Cardinal Grand Square culminates - The 20th the 3 outer planets are all at 13 degrees, Jupiter squares Uranus 0: 25 AM Pacific, opposes Pluto at 4:05 PM. The Moon in Capricorn mows through all 4 planets in just under one and a half hours, from 5:27 PM Pacific through 6:56 PM Pacific! The 21st Uranus caps it with the square to Pluto 11:38 AM. Tense, explosive. Remarkable, resourceful, remorseful perhaps. The temptation is to exaggerate, and that may be temporarily necessary to make your point, get people to think. If you get heated, take time out immediately. Don’t say or do something that can’t be taken back. With Pluto in the mix there may be no forgiveness this lifetime!  Some will want their way and appear to use any means to get it. Others will show extraordinary kindness in the face of great difficulty. This Grand Cross involves personal and home and family matters, marriage type relationships and career/business. There will be a lot on our plates. Be informed. Take your best stuff to the negotiating table. Put yourself in the other person’s place, but stand your ground. If negotiating can’t work, let it go with what Grace you can muster. Avoid blaming; do your part. Get what you can get in a good way, or don’t do it, because if you do, know there will be a price down the road.
  • April 22, 23  Because Mars is Retrograde, the square intensely continues through the 23rd.The 22nd, Mars squares Jupiter, a mighty froth ensues, and some truths are heard with exclamation points! Genuine action is called for. The 23rd, Mars powers into the Uranus square Pluto, opposing Uranus and squaring Pluto! No peace for the wicked! No stone is left unturned. The 18th to the 23rd are the most intense, times to be cautious and careful. Unless absolutely necessary for defense in life threatening situations or to prevent abuse, leave confrontations to more calm times. You could be charged with something that was done to you!  Though Mars can be a defender, champion and first responder, it can also be bullets, knives, fire and fists. Give more space when you are driving or don’t drive. Leave a heated scene immediately. Be safe and cautious about sex – no rape, no illicit sex, protect yourself from disease and especially if you don’t want children at this time. See? Be careful, please. Please.

This mighty Grand Square is at 13 degrees. The Cardinal 13th degree can be potent! It is considered a ‘critical’ degree by many astrologers. It represents gateways, not necessarily bad luck at all. Sometimes things come to a head, there is a crisis, a significant change. In this case, being in a challenging configuration, it would be hard to separate the cause, the critical degree or the troublemaker Grand Square. Cardinal signs are noted for taking action, so one way or another, don’t expect to be placidly standing around if your chart has factors close to or at the 13th degree.

We will be working this Grand Square for months, some parts of it we have already worked for years! It is an initiation process of the four Cardinal Signs – Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn. These signs are the classic basic framework of the heavens, Sunrise - Sunset, Midnight - High Noon. They symbolize the axes of the most crucial relationships we have – Self and Others/Marriage, and of Home/Family and Career out in the world. This planetary line-up is unusual because three outer planets are in the SAME DEGREE equally spaced. It is potently activated by Mars Retrograde at the 4th point. If you don’t have planets at 12 to 18 degrees, you may not be affected at all, or be a watcher of the crises as they come and go, being helpful as you can. Planets you do have within those degrees will be activated in various ways. This is a rare adventure worth your time and attention! No, it won’t all be easy, but you will be glad for the results in time. If you hadn’t _____, you wouldn’t have _____! Blessings on your way.

Here is the Grand Square (red square lines) chart on April 17th with Venus conjunct Chiron in the mix! At this moment she trines Jupiter exactly, sextiles Pluto, semi sextiles Uranus, all at 13 degrees! Carefully played, and choosing investments relative to this chart, plus having some good aspects in and transits to your own chart, in spite of the Grand Square, this could be a money maker! Good luck!

Mercury Retrograde, Jann Klose, Make It Better

NYC-based musician Jann Klose, born in Germany, raised in Kenya and South Africa, sings our song! Retrogrades go back and Make It Better!

2014 has its standard 3 Mercury Rx, each of them straddling water and air signs, Pisces/Aquarius, Cancer/Gemini, then Scorpio/Libra. Air signs are thought to be thinkers, ones who make connections.  Water signs bring a nurturing quality that keeps those ideas and connections alive and thriving! 2014 starts with a back-to-back series of retrogrades involving Venus, Mercury, then Mars. The series goes through May 19, 2014. Read More!  Please also see Fall-Winter 2013-14 Mercury, Venus, Mars Retrogrades

Jan 31 Venus Directs finishing the Capricorn retrograde it started Winter Solstice, Capricorn day, Dec 21, 2013! Over the course of the holidays, the New Year, many have been reconsidering relationships, financial and career choices. Relationships with Fathers have been shifting, and laws reassessed. Time, tiredness and age have forced some to choose simpler life styles. Wills/inheritances, taxes, interest rates, sources of funding, real estate are under consideration. Many are being blessed with greater wealth than ever as Venus has been close with Pluto. Others have had encounters with mortality and healing, the power of LIFE itself, even beating addictions!

Feb 6 Mercury Retrogrades in Pisces, going back to 18 degrees of Aquarius. Mercury wades and wanders around in the tide pools of Pisces, seeing the creatures, feeding and washing, seeing the reflections of sky and clouds. Or there are tsunamis of thoughts, rolling over each other, tumbling like the waves, washing our spirits clean! It is an absorptive process. Entirely engaged, we rethink all those Venus wishes. What seemed to be lack of attention, or being overwhelmed, remixes our perceptions to a more enchanting outcome! As Mercury goes back into Aquarius, we are shaken, not stirred, and Aquarius doesn’t even do bored blandly! Our thinking is like showers of sparkles of fireworks! Look up! Many lights going on at once can join together and light up the whole sky! Just like stars in the heavens!

Mercury in Pisces is a preview because it is only there from Jan 31 to Feb 12. The station, the stilling period while Mercury turns retrograde, keeps our thoughts on spot. It infuses us with that energy. We ‘see’ in that way. We express ourselves through that portal. Pisces conditions are good with that. They may be sailors, passengers, on a long sea journey, meditators at the ashram, musing on music, dreaming. They see the needs of others if they were their own. Dedication for a lifetime.

Mercury in Aquarius is the epiphany machine! Community building, linking the right people together, each contributing their genius, creates and begets power! Depending on how it is applied, it’s like an Everyday Enlightenment – a living entity! What one knows, all know! Connect as high as you can, or as to the point as you can! Dare to ask! Wake up the sleepers! See your Being expand as electric synapses invigorate your brain!  Let your Word be heard!

March 1 Mars Retrogrades in Libra the day after Mercury Directs Feb 28! Mercury in Aquarius makes the connections; Mars takes action on them! In Libra balancing, equalizing, evening the playing field. Mars in Libra fights for rights, cultural integration, beauty. Mars leads, cajoles, grumbles, fights, seduces, threatens, has courage, inspires! They invite you to take a first step, but if you don’t get going, they will quickly leave you in the dust for more return on the action. If you don’t see it now, they will find someone who does. They might come back to see if you are ready yet, but don’t count on it. Your job will be to catch up! No sleeping dogs! This is a time for vigorous relationships, forays into new business options, restoring balance to your health that you may be a worthy partner! The first relationship is you with yourself. Do your part. When you are ready, seek spirited companions who want what you want, who celebrate you for exactly who you are! But, truly don’t expect them to be just like you! You will each give your part gloriously independently!
