Happy Birthdays, Sagittarians!

Sagittarius Margaret Mead Anthropologist Quote

Margaret Mead, a deeply respected and controversial Sagittarian woman anthropologist who carried the Light of the future! Dec 16, 1901, she had Mercury, Uranus and Sun in Sagittarius, with Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet at her ASCendant! She was born to travel and inspire! Capricorn is strong in her chart, her love and respect of ancient wisdom. She spoke at the first Earth Day! Aquarius is strong in her chart, interest in groups of people of unique heritage, her part in changing the world. See her Chart.

In Samoa, Ms Mead studied growing up in different cultures, so called ‘primitive.’ She was the first anthropologist to look at human development in a cross-cultural perspective and refuted the thinking of the times. In New Guinea, she demonstrated that gender roles differed from one society to another. She was taught that the interconnection of all aspects of human life, ie the production of food cannot be separated from ritual and belief, and politics cannot be separated from childrearing or art. This holistic understanding allowed Mead to speak out on a very wide range of issues. She insisted that human diversity is a resource, not a handicap, that all human beings have the capacity to learn from and teach each other. She lived that principle when she was able to address the public, as author and speaker, with affection and respect.

Summing up the life of such a remarkable woman almost seems a sacrilege. But per the Institute for Intercultural Studies, that she founded: ‘Mead taught at a number of institutions, her long term professional base was at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. She authored some twenty books and coauthored an equal number. She was much honored in her lifetime, serving as president of major scientific associations, including the American Anthropological Association and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and she received 28 honorary doctorates. She was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom following her death in 1978. Her voluminous archives are now housed in the Library of Congress.’

Whether Mead was ‘right’ or ‘wrong,’ based on the authority of the remarkable experience of her work, she stirred up the thinking of the times and to this day her work is causing consternation and reassessing on many fronts. Being a woman, her sexuality, and doing some outrageous things, gave her work a spice factor that had to be talked about, average citizen to scientist! Well done, Meg.


Sagittarius 2014 Highlights!  

Our New Moon is on November 22the first day of Sagittarius! This New Moon will be the second of Five in a row that start their signs, 2014 Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn, and 2015 Aquarius and Pisces, all at ZERO degrees! The next day, Venus also enters Sagittarius.

Jupiter still remains in close square with Saturn through November 30.

There are only 2 outer planet events remaining in 2014. Dec 14 brings the sixth, NEXT TO LAST, Uranus square Pluto!  Since it is in a retrograde to direct station, the aspect is held closely FOR 3 MONTHS, at about 1 degree, continuously until the final seventh aspect March 16, 2015!

Sagittarius, Travelers of Life, Explorers of Spirit!
Sagittarius Travel Life World Map Quote

Many a first attempt has been a youngster running away from home out of dissatisfaction! Surely there must be more, better. A lifetime’s journey, the great Mutation begins…. The urge to see more, learn, give of ourselves, makes us put on our traveling shoes. Hopefully, all turns out safe and well, usually does with those lucky Sagittarians. Consciousness is never the same after the sights that have been seen.

Sag’s robust and playful planet Jupiter just about guarantees health is radiant as the excitement of possibilities become apparent and are engaged! Our bodies and our lives stretch beyond our dreams. That was then, this is living the future! Yoga. Galloping horses on the steppes. Skating by the beach. Skiing with your hot breath steaming! Bathing in the Pamukkale hot springs in Turkey.

Fortunes are made as ventures are shared at a greater range, imports/exports embracing a generous potential of many peoples’ offerings, near and far. Might be publishing something so delicious like that travel cookbook. Could be selling Moroccan jewelry, gypsy and belly dance garb. A bestseller of your ashram experiences and philosophy, spiritual cures. A photographic journal of some exquisite faraway place few have been to.

Teachings are gifted, the result of rich assimilation of all kinds of fully engaged experiences, immersion in unique cultures. Our principles of life embrace a luxuriant range of thinking acquired over centuries of considerations, sometimes at ancient sites. At times our life is on the line, potently deepening our perspective, developing compassion. So many more options become possible. Our flex, adaptability increases. Curiosity and creation live together alive, responsive, proactive.

Fiery Spirituality, religious studies, learned masters are another endless search. Sometimes interrupted by fractures of time, needs of others, still the quest is forever inside us no matter where we go, or sit. Even when resting, recovering, we revision what was, vision the next keen quest. A great Master questions the questions.

Wiseman or cunning Jokester, there is a twinkle in the eye of a Soul that has seen suffering and come through, has been scared beyond reason, has seen such beauty it makes you cry. A laughing Soul finds our foibles delightful, unspokenly offers a challenge to tweak what we thought was cast in stone, and gets away with it! When called for, Solomon’s justice can be administered. Perspectives dance like a shimmering rainbow. Sagittarius’ brand of relativity, one step to another, leads us to conclusions that make more sense. And then there are those surprise endings of the well-told stories around the campfire!

Sagittarius expands the dimensions, lives in a bigger world! It all starts with one step and, hang on, it gains momentum!

Sagittarius NEW MOON GATEWAY!
Saturday Nov 22 at 4:32 AM Pacific – 0 Sagittarius 07

See  FULL Long Nights Moon, Last FM of 2014

New Moon the first fiery day of Sagittarius the Gateway to Space of Mind and Adventure! This New Moon will be the second of Five in a row that start their signs, 2014 Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn, and 2015 Aquarius and Pisces, all at ZERO degrees! As we finish the long term challenge of Uranus square Pluto seven times, these zero degrees are like little booster shots! They remind us new beginnings are here. We can activate them by our new choices. They are freeing us from old dilemmas as the past fades, our sights are on the fresh possibilities to come!

The New of Sagittarius is the promise of walking new territory, adventure, exploration. Perusing the philosophies of the world opens us to a bigger world, filling it with more blessings with every step we take. Accepting the challenge of seeking more just and ethical solutions for the long term engages every pore of our Spirit! Taking the risk of teaching leadership, coaching to success, requires every mindful breath to bring your student, patient, client to a comfortable place so they can make effective personal change. Acknowledging needed health care takes faithful courage as we walk the coals of fear. We burn the dross of our minds away to enjoy the physical prowess possible, no matter your age or circumstances. Be the best YOU can be.

The New Moon is opposite the fixed star Alcyone, the central star in the Pleiades, now at zero Gemini! It’s not considered to be an easy star and the Pleiades are also called the Weeping Sisters. Words associated with Alcyone are ambition, honor versus trouble with opposite sex; homosexuality, disgrace, loss, sorrow. Since the star is opposite the New Moon, these are things to be aware of, taken into consideration. Someone across the table or at a distance may need your help. Or someone may leave you, or you them. Extending yourself may bring an alliance, but negotiations may fade. Let go of attachments to what is past; form better stronger bonds in your new circumstances. Eyes open, learn what you can, give yourself a hug and keep going.

If you are just learning about Fixed Stars or are an aficionado, please see Rob Tillett’s great post and list of Fixed Stars by sign and degree!

There are three planetary combinations in this New Moon chart that involve ALL the planets!

First is the Moon, Sun, Venus beginning the journey together at 0, 0 and 7 degrees squaring Neptune at 4 degrees. Think now where you would like to Journey by next year’s Sagittarian New Moon! This is the beginning. Note on your calendar what you start this November that could take a year or could be the core beginning that would lead to many avenues of success, happy accomplishment, make you feel super good about yourself! Circle the spot, the destination is X, firm but somewhat unknown as well, likely more than you expected! Plan a celebration!

Venus will dance with delight; the ballet may be your first Marathon! Leap onto a horse, go the distance! See life from a new height, a mountain top! Play cards with those crazy kids, the seniors at the park. Grow some exotic fruits with special health benefits! Learn the names of people who speak a different language. Give gratitude for delightful differences that bless our world.

Sagittarians do have their opinions, adamantly at times. Neptune doesn’t always, but sometimes gives its life for its beliefs when it does. Sag shoots the arrow, but square Neptune may miss the mark. Neptune diffuses, becomes one with another’s Soul, develops compassion. It may become ok to be different, and come to see the possibility of a greater sharing for it. Neptune may appear weak to a robust Sag, but perhaps Neptune relaxes at the spa, enjoying Sag’s show. They can chat later with the stars shining over the hot spring. Wide eyed Sag may reignite a worn out or lazy Neptune. Sag may then need to bolt off to see what’s next in the Universe, especially if things go too slow. Sensitive Neptune may need solitude and retreats within for a while. It’s all good.

Second, Venus links us to the 11, 12, 13 set of Pluto, Uranus and Chiron. Venus in Sagittarius couldn’t be happier trine Uranus in Aries! Where are you going? Which flight? New worlds to see, fun with friends. Yes, Uranus is in the last part of its square with Pluto, but Venus blesses with her love and optimism. Uranus/Pluto has pulled down old thinking. Venus offers multiple valuable options, and with Uranus, are surprisingly doable, genius results worth the investment! New communities are springing up serving special sectors, sharing mutual goals. Make YOUR plans! Together much more can get done.

Third, the rest of the planets, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn, at 20, 21, 22 and 26, are collectively coordinating energy, productive! Mercury in Scorpio is not wasting breath or words conjunct Saturn. Timing is of the essence. It’s thinking about fathers, commitments, career, age, building, real estate, monies, all important things. It realistically appraises and thinks of duration, archetypes, long term presence, healing, relationship failures and strengths.

These two in that almost square with Jupiter are more than usually thoughtful. Sometimes it’s funny, exaggerated, misjudging that it will have little impact and blow by. Sometimes it’s serious and pesky, possibly downright depressing. There may be a sad announcement. But gather yourself. Notice and face up to weak spots, and cut to the chase. Prevention and preparation make a justifiable difference. Is it a mere foible, or will inattention have lingering consequences….

Mars in Capricorn is sextile the Mercury/Saturn conjunction. Mars is in what used to be Mutual Reception with Saturn in Scorpio, in each other’s signs. Mars used to rule Scorpio, and there is a resonance. Mars is just running on top while Scorpio tunnels deep. Saturn and Capricorn demand results. Mars isn’t noted for perseverance, but does get things ignited and doesn’t waste time. Scorpio adds a little oil and either it’s slippery, greases the wheel, or is on fire! Saturn/Cap contains the energy, puts it to work! Mercury’s intense focus is delighted things are getting done quickly with recycling and little expense. Saturn in Scorpio may hold on too tight too long. Letting go is part of the equation here. Look behind the Mask.

Mars is kicking dust and rocks at Jupiter, flirting, actually. Jupiter In Leo has prowess Mars can respect, and joins in for a bit. Mars in Capricorn can be a super trainer, and Jupiter in Leo is a terrific coach! The combination probably won’t stick, they are inconjunct, an oblique acquaintance. Both are tops, and there’s not enough room for two. Leo doesn’t usually like being challenged, especially when the other is right, and Mars in Cap doesn’t make too many mistakes. Thrifty Mars in Cap is put off by Leo’s seeming time-wasting melodrama, added expenses. Jupiter has its opinions, and Mars is not always respectful of the almighty holy leader’s point of view! Mars in Cap dares to point out the facts. If Jupiter can console itself by hiring Mars as a temp adviser, Jupiter can think on things and cleverly make up their own mind and do adjustments later – wiser, better informed, looking good!

FULL LONG NIGHTS MOON! Last 2014 Full Moon!
Saturday Dec 6 at 4:27 AM Pacific – 14 Gemini 18 

This is the last Full Moon Portal of 2014. The mid of Gemini ~ Sagittarius is the Gateway. Word and Meaning.

Open and maximize your span to its fullest dimension. Scoop the sky with your wings wide to gather all the goodness you can reach! Smile as broadly as possible; let no one miss the touch of your love. Reach out with your handshake, step into Life fully. Extend your perimeter. Send your words around the world to quicken the Spirit.

Mutable Signs, Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces make up the Full Moon T SQUARE! Their gift is to roll the log, check out everything in sight, wonder what it all means, speculate on the web of Life! Mother Moon in Gemini talks with siblings, connects the family. She chats with the neighbors uniting support and diversity. She hears the feelings behind the words and more sweetly brings people under her nurturing wings. Just a few words can make such a difference. Mobility, getting out and about, brings a breath of fresh air.

Positive backdrop. Moon has just been sextile Uranus in Aries, and Mercury/Sun have just trined Uranus, so that getting out, having healthy freedom, refreshes the Spirit. Friends are supportive, and we are good to them. New friends have been made, crazy wonderful ideas have been bounced around, excellent solutions have popped up.

In the preceding 5 days, Venus in Sagittarius trined its ruler Jupiter, in Leo, and has had some terrific ideas that offer inspiration. Lucky, valuable, attractive, worth the effort. Add those to the mix! Maybe a little trip…. And Mars has just entered Aquarius! Perfect time for new and different, new friends, groups, or great to be finally on your own! Works both ways!

Moon having been inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn has triggered some deeper insights, hinted at necessities regardless of our other wishes, perhaps at entrapment or secrets too long held. Maybe they need some fresh air too. Do not talk reactively for the sake of talking, fearfully compulsively blabbering. Be resourceful with solutions, have a plan for getting them done. If it isn’t an emergency, tinker at it a bit at a time, in a timely fashion. Offer solutions that relieve the pressure. Invite people to take a new look, give it a try. Old ways become habits. Give the new stuff enough time to sink in so they can start to feel the change. They will have hope as they see things progress.

Mercury and Father Sun in Sagittarius opposite the Moon, gives greater meaning to our points of view. Mercury is the planet of Gemini, so this Full Moon is truly linked across the table. While one speaks, the other really hears and knows the importance of what you are saying. More generous opinions are formed and shared. Teaching is more than facts, though they too are important. Plans can be made from the hope of faith. We can go further from home than anticipated, discover Good Will in so many hearts. Solutions to old matters changes our life in profound ways. Though not related by degrees, Sun and Jupiter are in each other’s signs, mutual reception! That lends Luck, protection, a big spirited air to things!

Chiron in Pisces is at the 90 degree midpoint of the Full Moon axis, the point of the T SQUARE! Chiron is the projection of the energy of the axis, and the one reaching out, the point of input to the axis.  Either way, it puts its stamp on what goes out and what comes in. As the wounded one, it calls for compassion, adaptation to its duress. As healer, it is always calling for courage to address what ails us, seeks a better way of caring for difficulties. As teacher, it asks us to master our teaching, help people to listen, vary our delivery techniques, know when to let the patient, student, client move on to another teacher or to celebrate them to go on by themselves! In the Magi system, Chiron is the #1 marriage factor. Question your alliances fully, enrich your relationships with kind words, be open to your partner’s ideas and be willing to give them a trial period. New ideas will come from that too! This will pay off in business as well.

Schedule an appointment or two to chat over your options. Share your ideas with people who can take them even further!

Sagittarius 2014 Full Long Nights Moon Astrology Chart


The next New Moon is on Winter Solstice Day, December 21, starting Capricorn! As 2014 finishes, Capricorn carries us into 2015. Yule blessings to you all! May your candles burn brightly, Spirit keep you, and you keep us, deep in your Heart.

In view of the current Uranus, planet of Freedom, in Aries, square with Pluto in Capricorn, I choose this talk if you would like to hear him.

Thich Nhat Hanh is now in hospital. The Sisters ask that you sit, peacefully for Thay, as they are doing, and send him your love. Also, that you might like to chant for him (you could do it along with the monks and nuns) this Avalokiteshvara Chant: The clip is 3 minutes long. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNfaXNGJiUc. He was said to be in a coma/unconscious state, but a later post says he is responsive! Please see more details and future announcements at www.plumvillage.org

He was born October 11, 1926 in Tha Tien, Quang Ngai province, Vietnam. Now 88 years, he became a Buddhist monk at 16. Saturn in Scorpio, a planet and sign of endings and healings combination, is just past its third return in his chart. 8 is the number of Scorpio, 88 is a Master number. He has served an honorable lifetime, healing, changing, teaching, guiding, mastering how to be a Master.

Thay, as he is affectionately called, has his Moon in Sagittarius I believe. It could be in Scorpio, but Sag fits him. He is a teacher, a traveler, spiritualist. We think of the Moon as a place we have come from in past lives, an accumulation of talent per the sign it is in. He is an adept. The moon shows what our home is like and where it is. His is far from where he was born, now at Plum Village in France, a teaching community he founded.

His Sun is Libra, seeking a balance of cultures, beings, within oneself. His Venus is there too, looking for grace in all places, beauty in all souls, sweetness, kindness.

We don’t know his Ascendant or which houses his planets are in because his birth time is unknown.

Jupiter in Aquarius indicates his world travel, the sharing of wisdom planet wide. It points to the wide range of his thinking. Personally I enjoy his walking meditation concept since in time it became difficult for me to sit. Jupiter in Aquarius trine (the most favorable aspect) his Sun also shows his fame.

Mercury in Scorpio shows a depth of thought beyond average, acute perception. His Mercury is opposite Chiron in Taurus, wounded healer teacher. He requests mindfulness, unstinting awareness that results in seeing one’s own and the needs of others in context of each other.

Mars is in Taurus, a combination of being Steady in the Light, continued good works, divine patience, a strength beyond what is expected, peace in motion. It is square Jupiter, simplicity taking on Goliath, the glorified perversities of a commercial world. Maybe he doesn’t enjoy flying. Powerfully, it sextiles Pluto in Cancer, the planet of finances, the deepest relationships of all, in the sign of nurturing unconditionally. Plum Village has been internationally funded, giving shelter, safety, solitude, to people from all over the world.

Saturn trines Uranus in Pisces and squares the ruler of Pisces, Neptune. He has the support of so many people and challenges the world’s spiritualism. A small nonthreatening man, but powerful nonetheless. It is not always easy for him seeing the blind cruelties that exist. He takes on mere mortal complacency.

With love, we always learn from the charts of others, especially those whose lives are documented. May you be inspired.

Sagittarius Oct 11, 1926 Thich Nhat Hahn, Spiritual Master

We salute you, bow in Spirit, thank you for your service on this planet, Thich Nhat Hanh. Please hold him peacefully in your good thoughts.

Mars Pluto square Uranus Thor Hemsworth
Collect your power, save the world! Leo Aussie Chris Hemsworth, plays Thor in Thor: the Dark World! Chris’s Mars trines his Jupiter Uranus conjunction (thunder), squares his Pluto Saturn Conjunction (downfall of Evil)! 

Allowing a 5 degree range, Mars started activating the Uranus square Pluto pattern Nov 2. Mars exactly conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn Nov 10, squares Uranus in Aries Nov 12!

This is the second to last Mars activation of the Uranus square Pluto! It makes the last one March 11, 2015 five days before the final, SEVENTH, Uranus square Pluto March 16! The next challenge combination will be Uranus opposite Pluto 2047/48, 32 years from now! This Mars activation is conjunct Pluto, stirring blood and ashes! March, Mars will potently be in its own sign Aries conjunct Uranus, Uranus being the planet making the square! Mars ups the amps of the Change Maker, what a Light show! Mars’ final two aspects are conjuncting, empowering, charging, the two planets involved in this world changing square. This square will NOT be forgotten! Let Freedom ring!

This current aspect is part of the Scorpio Full Frosty Moon! No tempting the demons! But it can’t be helped. There is daredevil written all over this one. Mars in Capricorn has more caution than most, but Scorpio’s planet Pluto, never let mere caution stop them. They just have to see it all, enjoy the danger! As scientists they are successful especially if they are fanatic. As career people, they get to the top over all obstacles. When dedicated they are super dependable and the job comes in ahead of time. They know where to get best prices, excellent labor perfect for the job. Mars adds a spark of get-up-on-your-legs out of the office! New ideas to be mixed. They aren’t half bad, but won’t turn out as expected either. Uranus delights in and is famed for sudden change! All we need is more time, but don’t expect Mars to stick around. He takes the point briefly, makes the point, and off he goes! Prepare to take over at a moment’s notice. Be careful with obsessions, sports, oil and fire, driving, flights.

SEX Matters! Mars with Pluto in Cap can be a superlative lover though possibly a wee bit technical. A good one will have read up on how to please their partner, learned about sex toys, make their partner feel safe and comfortable, be able to talk about intimate things. The other possibility is a shy, inexperienced uneducated partner, even impotent. Tiredness, performance concerns, first time fear, not enough time, wrong place, are all understandable matters. If a new partner you might wait. Decide if you want to be teacher. If in a long term relationship, it’s a good time to carefully, gently, check in with your partner, update how you want to share now, see if, how needs have changed.

Mars with Pluto.  Long standing health matters may rear up, needing healing at the root. Pluto in Capricorn hates to be a trouble, it’s costly, they can be embarrassed, are strong and can get used to that pain. So they adapt rather than face the reality. A quick fix, too good to be true, may come along, or a real one that works wonders. Get the latest info on your circumstances. You may feel naked, niggled, a little scared, out of your league, but do it. One thing may quickly lead to another. Get help to be sure you have complete support and can take advantage of any breakthroughs. You will likely feel your mortality, your age, your genetics at play.

Mars in Capricorn square Uranus in Aries! Both planets are unstable dynamic creators! Attention spans may be short. Keep it sweet and to the point. Capricorn hates to waste time, and Aries has only a moment, if that! Each are a force of their own! Intuition is a mile a minute! Capricorn feels responsible, but it needs to up the pace to fit the parameters, be more the guide than the enforcer. Capricious is a close word, perverse may be in the family too. Rebellion, even against what you tell yourself, can be a challenge to everything you try to do! Occasionally these unthinking reactions can save the day, so glad you didn’t do THAT! Capricorn uses things judiciously, so there may be materials left over, more time to polish an otherwise tedious project. Use that to your advantage. Donate, reuse, start another project. Some surprise endings are well worth it! It will pay off to take some moments to rest, slow it down when you can, schedule time to reassess.

It’s a challenge to know how to fit in. Mars, Uranus in Aries, Mars’ sign, are all independence freedom factors. Yet, Capricorn is responsible, fathering so many things to fruition, and Uranus also rules the function of the world community. As these last years have gone along, we have seen so much turmoil and change since the Uranus square Pluto started in 2010. Financial changes, now so many wars, have shifted so many lives. It takes the freedom of one to act in behalf of the freedom for many. Often battles are more intense as inevitable ends of eras are sensed. This is a time to be Steady in the Light. Mars, Aries, represent the Flame, the Light of Life. Uranus contributes the sizzle to keep it alive. Capricorn, the spiritual Builder, one by one keeps laying on the bricks, puts up a strong framework.

It takes us all, at times alone, at times together. We’re counting on you to do your part.

Happy Magical Birthdays, Scorpios!

Scorpio Dark and Light, Hood

Scorpio is the sign of the Underworld, the time of All Saints and Souls, The Day of the Dead. Also, resurrection, the Phoenix rising from its own ashes! There is a time for all seasons.

Observation, keen insights are common craft. There is a timeless pervasiveness. Strengthening comes from the most extreme experiences, racing your motorcycle facing death, having wealth beyond expectation, unfathomable love.

The sweet within, the dark of the unknown, down, down, down, we are curiously walking, feeling our way, until we sit in saturation and become one with it. We may listen to silence, become very still, even monastic. We could drift for a while, come to a cross-road. We may choose to return to the Light, regaining ground, rising, peeking out, seeing with new vision. Entire worlds others know nothing of may exist within us, powering our torch.

Young and lean, the prowess of a panther, or wizened and withered, Scorpio wizard charisma, draws us to them. They can speak of the unspeakable, are unafraid to hear our story, our deepest fears, greatest powers, and we come away healed another degree. We are naked in Spirit, relieved of another layer of blindness, liberated from our own doing. We now realize there are others like us, many others! This true power is core, at our root being. It’s hypnotic by simply being what it is, raw.

Love with these Beings is as no other, volcanic passion. Union is truly the ‘Little Death!’ Ecstasy is an explosion, loss of ordinary consciousness. Love can be so powerful it aches. Once experienced, this potency makes you never want to go back to anything less wonderful. And it wakes you up to the amazing possibilities in all things! Your life is forever changed.

The Psychic Surgeon continues to clear the Soul. Unencumbered it catches every scent. It knows the subtlest forms, nuances of joy and beauty. The earth exudes her exotic ripe richness, the winds whisper messages, fire clears and opens our receivers, water’s touch swirls the mix and covers us with its Magic!

Scorpio has many Voices. Silence is powerful, profound. Meditation takes you to many worlds without moving your feet. You can hear the lizard’s feet as they scamper over the rocks, or on a quiet morning, a crow’s toes as they walk the street. The protective warning hiss of a snake or the growl of a person in pain that really doesn’t want to hurt you but feels cornered. The sound and shadow of eagle feathers overhead or zooming by at stupendous speed startles you more alive. All are signs to live by.

We often say, Steady in the Light. There is a balance. Also be Steady in the Dark. Learn the goodness in shorter days; the earth is resting. Enjoy the dark for her deeper quiet Grace. Love the Ones you can no longer see, but are in a different dimension. Enjoy the stars in the limitless Heavens. Let go of fears of the Unknown; learn how to navigate well wherever you are. Fears can be snap-of-the-fingers remarkably short-lived!

Scorpio, Double, Sun & Ascendant, Stellium, Chloe Sevigny

Nov 18, 1974 Chloë Sevigny, model, icon fashion designer, actress, has her Mercury, Ascendant, Mars, Sun and Venus in Scorpio, a double Scorpio with a four planet Scorpio stellium! Her Venus is sextile Uranus, giving her a wild range of looks, from schoolgirl innocence, schoolmarm to leathers, T-shirt to sophisticate, everything in between! With that and her Mars in her first house, she has succeeded in contemporary independent cinema. Jupiter trine her Mercury/Asc has made her famous but with caveats. It is also square her Neptune, a quiet obscurity, and inconjunct her Pluto (Scorpio’s planet), privacy. She has an unusual quirky little smile, and by many is considered androgynous looking, another Uranian trait, rather undefinable. Scorpio loves a good mystery and, as a sympathizer, the gay community loves her.

Her Sun and Venus together in Scorpio has given her a keen sense of beauty, more than a little seductive charisma, and at times a Birth of Venus ala painter Sandro Botticelli look. It’s uncanny when you look at her images.

She’s quite a woman. In 1994, her personal style attracted the attention of journalist Jay McInerney, who wrote a 7-page article about her for The New Yorker, in which he called a then 19-year-old Sevigny the “coolest girl in the world.” In 2000, she won the VH1 Vogue Fashion Award for best female celebrity style, making her one of the coolest women in the industry! In a 2009 interview she said she was content with the level of stardom she had maintained. She had decided to never be a celebrity at the level where people hunted her, chased her. She said, ‘I think that’s why I’ve chosen to do the work that I do and just kind of work with directors that I love and try to do work that means something to me.’ She walks the fine line between success, and the way she has success, quite well.


Happy Halloween, Samhain!

NEW MOON, Solar Eclipse, last Eclipse of 2014!!
Wednesday Oct 23 at 2:57 PM Pacific – 0 SC 25 

See  FULL Frosty Moon

The Magic of Love and New Beginnings!

Five days of New Beginnings! New Moon, Solar Eclipse, Venus, Moon, Sun at ZERO degrees, Sun, Venus, Mars Sign Changes, four Occultations, Mercury turning Direct!

Our New Moon, Fall Solar Eclipse, is Oct 23, the first day of SCORPIO! Oct 22 – 23 Moon, Mercury retrograde, Venus and Sun make a four planet Stellium (grouping) in Libra! The 23rd Sun, Venus, then Moon move into Scorpio within hours and minutes of each other, soon to join Saturn already there. What was a Libra Stellium, at 2:10 PM Pacific becomes a four planet Stellium in Scorpio! This New Moon will be the first of Five in a row, 2014 Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn, and 2015 Aquarius and Pisces, that are all at ZERO degrees!

In four days there are four potent occultations, another word for eclipses. These are more potent than conjunctions because not only are the planets aligned along the path of the constellations across the sky right to left, but they are at the same height above the Ecliptic (the Sun’s path)! This means they are perfectly aligned in line of sight! So you see, eclipses are all conjunctions, but all conjunctions are not eclipses. The energy of eclipses is unavoidable, a perfect two way exchange, no near misses. 

  • Oct 22  2:26 PM Pacific Moon in Libra eclipses Mercury retrograde. Moon senses the true balance, regard. The relationship you were thinking of may be forever lost, or temporarily shadowed, in a more gripping event or concept. Schedule a follow up meeting. Offer a better alliance with more tasty options. Mercury, usually logical, finds itself considering feelings as well as ideas, and though confused perhaps at first, is able to adroitly express and convey a more tonal quality to the meaning of its words. A fusion, greater impact is possible. Libra wants that Union.
  • Oct 23  2:12 PM  Moon eclipses Venus 20 minutes after she enters Scorpio! Moon loves in her motherly way, compared to Venus’s romantic love. Children may interfere and lovers neglected. An immediate housing need may require money to be diverted from enjoyable social events or beautiful furnishings. Set aside some special very personal time, have a great gourmet meal together in a few days when the dust has settled.
  • Oct 23  2:57 PM  New Moon, Solar Eclipse in Scorpio at Zero Degrees. That’s about as fresh as it gets! Venus is also at zero degrees. New Moons represent endings/new beginnings, and so does zero degrees. One cycle has culminated, another begun. We are leaving the queries of Libra, curious about both sides, behind. Scorpio has pretty much made up its mind, and is delving into what is behind the scenes, moving the monies around, placing people in positions per their best strengths, healing rifts. As some are being exonerated, others are being forfeited, clearing the Path for more whole ground. It may be uncomfortable personally, plans don’t turn out as expected, but in about three weeks you will have greater clarity and be glad it all happened. You personally, and every step you take are part of the Divine scheme.New Moons are mergers of Male and Female energy. In an Eclipse they are in perfect alignment. Moon is between Sun and Earth, completely infused with Sun energy, acts as a transformation station, softens and transmits to Earth. As one cycle ends, is burned away potently, the new begins most potently, energized to the max! People say New Moons are quiet times, to be in meditation. I say only if you let it! There is much to be done. Time to put away what’s done and give it a respected place in your household of life or revision to reuse, let it go, give it away! Time to water the seeds cast in the fertile soil that was made! No time to dawdle because more life is on the way! Give it a compelling welcome!
  • Oct 25  9:11 AM  Moon eclipses Saturn followed by Mercury turning direct/forward! Moon and Saturn rule opposite signs, soft flowing Cancer and structured strong-as-stone Capricorn! Both feel their responsibilities to home and providing deeply. Cancers love no matter what; Saturn teaches disciplines to save a life, fulfill goals, strengthen your Soul. The order and timing of things may change shape as Mama Moon takes over. What you feel may become more important than what is expected of you. Your polarity may shift and you find your work become more encompassing, richer. Maybe you see that Mother-in-law in new Light, worthy.

At the moment of the Saturn Eclipse, Mercury is still technically retrograde. He turns direct 12:17 PM Pacific. Three to four days before and after a Mercury turn, Mercury is in what is called ‘Station,’ virtually standing still when observed in the sky. Things are on hold, can be scrutinized fully and more deeply. They can be absorbed, measured for standing value. You may be infused, imbued with more power of the sign it is in, if the station degrees aspect factors in your chart. The conduit Mercury most strongly activates is factors at 16, 17, 18. Those factors will be changed, charged, as you receive the energy day after day, while it is slowed down enough to take it in. Concentrate. Focus.

ZERO Degrees Conjunctions! Venus, Moon, and Sun! Venus and Moon are so feminine, and Sun is all male in its radiant golden Light! That Light may be a bit hidden in Scorpio, but once revealed, more intense than could be imagined! Yellow is Scorpio’s sacred color. Scorpio passion is moulten fiery; ice is when you are on their S list.

  • The Moon conjuncts Venus at 2:12 PM, just 45 minutes before the Eclipse at 2:57 PM. Moon is sipping from the Venus in Scorpio well of sacred mystery. Moon sees deeper than many, receives the gift of beauty that is more than everyday business. Venus is loved no matter what obsession in Scorpio possesses her now. She is treated tenderly, nourished, made to feel safer to brave stepping across the line to an even greater love.
  • The Venus, moving faster, conjuncts the Sun essentially on the 24th, exactly at 0:31 AM the 25th, before the Moon eclipse Saturn and Mercury turns Direct. Venus infuses the Sun with a sense of truer, deeper values, gives a blessing, a kindness, appreciation, affection. It’s beauty as well as money, graciousness as well as healing. The Sun feels honored, renews his mortal promise.

LOVE! THE powerful aspect the Eclipse planets, Venus, Moon, Sun, make is the trine to Neptune in Pisces! Scorpio is your mate for life, Pisces is your ‘God,’ Spirit, Soul of life. Each has profound inclinations including being willing to give their lives for their loved ones, or the whole world for that matter.

  • Venus/Neptune is the classic SoulMate combination. In trine, it’s a chance the favor will be bestowed. In this case the signs are favorable and at a New Moon, a new beginning likely. Scorpio cleanses, restores, rebirths, remembers. With Mercury still Rx in Libra, marital relationships, old loves can come back or current relationships repaired, rebalanced. Sometimes it’s just a review as we realize what is, is, and that we need to let go lovingly as we can. Neptune has ultra sensitivity, so we’re not likely to miss the cues. Be gentle and strong. The profound love of music and beauty can take us well beyond a callous world, a healing offering with no words at all.
  • Moon trine Neptune is a love of all souls, so perfect an aspect to precede Halloween, All Souls Day. Moon is the planet of Cancer, the sign of Mediums, those who can cross the divide to engage beings no longer on this life plane. It’s a form of empathy. Cancer/Moon loves genealogy, things of the past that made us so. Neptune is the ruler of Souls, sometimes lost Souls, whether here or there. Compassion is a most potent ability. Being heard, understood, not necessarily agreed with, but just that someone sees our pain, is often incredibly healing. Forgiveness, atonement, can mediate pain, in a moment cross the divide of schism.
  • Sun trine Neptune goes with ‘God,’ calls our personal heart to the Dream, Vision. It puts Light in the Dark Night of the Soul. It takes our hand and walks before us, sometimes scared themselves, but together we pretend it’s gonna be fine, and it is! It feels good to give, and we forget our own sorrows. Sharing, having a mate, immersed, is a generous devotion, a deep, satisfying wholeness. It reminds and encourages us to really BE ourselves. We can live our lives fully, intensely, right up to our time to go.

Full Frosty Moon!!
Thursday Nov 6 at 2:23 PM Pacific – 14 TA 26 

Blessings and Challenges!

The Aquarian planet Uranus connects the two major configurations of our Frosty Moon! Indeed, it is getting cooler outside, and Uranus, planet of Aquarius, is noted for a cool demeanor. Halloween opened the gateway to the darker under worlds of winter, where magic lays in wait. Now on a moonlight night, we can stand in stillness, hearing the sounds of quiet. Take a deep slow breath. Feel it. Change and chance are near. Life may be quiet at times, but it’s alive.

1)  Taurus Moon, Scorpio Sun/Venus, Chiron in Pisces and Uranus in Aries!

Moon opposite Sun with Venus. Oppositions are 100%  aware of each other, especially the Moon and Sun that do it every month, but they are separate too. They need to be. Letting go is a divine principle. Standing alone, recentering, is essential. Moon is so sensitive she needs the distance and not to have to be constantly taking care of everyone, Taurus forever dependable. Let her kick her shoes off. Sun is concerned if he’s doing ok in your eyes. Better to be gone a bit so he can relax and restore, not have to be ‘on,’ a hero every moment. It’s exhausting. Scorpio works when you don’t even see him do it.

Consider the opposite principles here too. Taurus is your personal monies; Scorpio is our shared monies. Both are good, independence and mergers. Taurus is your own body, slithery sensual sex; Scorpio wants to more than just touch you, they want the earth to move! Taurus loves Earth herself, barefooted; Scorpio loves snorkeling, scuba diving, caving, Halloween gravestones! Taurus will do your mask, makeup and hair; Scorpio has invisible charisma no matter how they look!

Two days before, Sun inconjuncted Uranus and trined Chiron!

  • Sun inconjunct Uranus in Aries  They rule opposite signs, Leo and Aquarius, self and friends, community. Inconjuncts adjust. Where we fit in our world, with our self, our mates (Scorpio), needs a tweak. TrueHeart. Unity. Simultaneous discovery continents away. Micro change to macrocosmic shifts of consciousness. How we love our self, honor our mate, is so crucial to planetary growth. Wee moments can trigger the changes of a 1000 years. Bring this to the Full Moon. Initiation. Do it once. Practice. One day your are it and it is you.
  • Sun trine Chiron in Pisces  It would seem powerful fearless Sun in Scorpio would eat Chiron in Pisces for breakfast. Maybe. If they can catch him. Chiron was an immortal who led the crazy centaurs. He was a coyote, a Kokopelli of sorts. He trained medicine men, and in a way was a shapeshifter in giving his powers to others who became like him. Hmm…Pisces, the escape artist, may be the winner, or at least the enchanter of curious healer Scorpio, and Scorpio is hard to impress. Scorpio is tough, but once won, would find Chiron a strong ally, each sharing many things with the other. They would understand each others meaningful nuances with less than a nod of the head. Call for the healing you need.

2)  Venus square Jupiter exact on Nov 9  Taurus planet Venus loves beautiful things, people, homes, clothes. In Scorpio, with Sun, she may want more valuable things, possibly sacred things that surpass the ordinary. There is a need to delve deep for the saint and sinner within, to explore the edge, live a little danger, invest a chance, raise the dead! Jupiter is in Sun’s sign Leo, wants to impress. It’s easy to go over budget and regret it later, or buy something that wasn’t worth it. Be sure of a good return policy, and don’t be proud. Take it back. Not a good time to bet with this square, and the ongoing Jupiter square Saturn hovering.

3)  Allowing a 5 degree range, Mars starts activating the Uranus square Pluto pattern Nov 2. Mars exactly conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn Nov 10, squares Uranus in Aries Nov 12!  No tempting the demons! But it can’t be helped. There is daredevil written all over this one. Mars in Capricorn has more caution than most, but Scorpio’s planet Pluto, never let mere caution stop them. They just have to see it all, enjoy the danger! Uranus in Aries lives for dare! As scientists they are especially successful when they are fanatic. Yet, as career people, Mars in Cap gets to the top over all obstacles. They are super dependable and the job comes in ahead of time. They know where to get best prices, excellent labor perfect for the job. They are perfect advocates, with the facts to back them, for new ventures, updates. They know when to rebel! Mars adds a spark of get-up-on-your-legs out of the office! New ideas to be mixed aren’t half bad, but won’t turn out as expected either. Uranus delights in and is famed for sudden change! All we need is more time, but don’t expect Mars to stick around. He takes the point briefly, makes the point, and off he goes! Prepare to take over at a moment’s notice. Be careful with obsessions, sports, oil and fire, driving, flights.

4)  Prevailing Jupiter close square Saturn in Scorpio through Nov 30. Pluto in Capricorn lives in this combination too because Saturn and Pluto are in each others signs, called a mutual reception! In horary astrology, they can be read in each other’s places. That would mean, Jupiter is square Pluto too! Jupiter square Saturn is like work versus play. Jupiter square Pluto is more like truth and secrets, consequences! Jupiter in Leo is supremely confident. Saviors Saturn and Pluto are both more gritty, face the devils that plague them! They deal with unstable careers, rocky finances, sometimes scary health matters. Jupiter never knew what happened and leads on, trusting all will be well. And why not?! There is a lot of talent behind them! Remember, this is an ‘almost’ aspect. Its matters are in the wind, there for your consideration, but the aspect doesn’t become exact. So make your life better, and keep going.

Wear your cloak, velvet gown, most beautiful undergarments and circle celebrate in the moonlight. Bring offerings of fine Spirits, breads and cheeses, elegant nuts, sweets to delight! Hug, hold hands, give thanks, rejoice!
