Last of 2014, Capricorn Winter Solstice NEW MOON!!
Sunday Dec 21 at 5:36 PM Pacific – 0 Capricorn 06

Our New Moon is on the first day of Capricorn, Winter Solstice, Yule! For many this is the real New Year! This New Moon will be the third 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!

FIVE planets, a stellium in Capricorn in a large conjunction, one following the other! Capricorn concentration and five ways to say it! Heart of dedication, the Matriarch and Patriarch united, literal words of Wisdom, seeking to the Core, Beauty and Beast! Both humble and powerful. Timeless structures for protection, foundations of integrity.

Moon and Sun conjunct Mercury. Mercury is leaving the Sun, faster moving, while the Moon will soon catch up with Mercury. Both have grabbed, or been infused by, a bit of Light at the heart and are carrying it forward. Mercury has the words and story; Moon gives the nurturing it takes to support it as it grows.

Mercury is more closely conjunct Pluto than the New Moon! Four signs in a row, Cap, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries, Pluto is strongly linked with Mars, Chiron and Uranus at 12 and 13 degrees! Mars and Uranus are in what we call a Mutual Reception, in each other’s signs! Potent! Both break up old patterns and delight in new times, new ways, now! Chiron sits midpoint between, extremely sensitive to the needs for planetary, even Spiritual change. It is sextile Pluto in Capricorn, knowing timing means everything. It calls for compassion in every moment. Pluto in Capricorn may protect the old ways unless shown what’s better, really better, not just good sounding. Trick is to listen to all ideas, use the old as a powerful framework, springboard, to step forward from. Pluto in Cap is expert at recycling, renovation! Mercury has a lot to talk about.

Venus separating conjunct Pluto. At 14 degrees Capricorn, it is just leaving the 12/13 degree planets, spreading the blessings. It sees the values in well placed power, experience. It celebrates the healing and changes to come. Adds a touch of class to new buildings and projects. She adds desire for Grace, to make the Beauty, attracts funding.

In contrast to the tight Saturn ruled Capricorn Stellium, and the rest of the planets, Jupiter (the orange planet at left) stands alone. Truly. It is separate in space, and makes no aspect to any other planet. See how all the connection lines in the center of the chart are to one side of the chart? By definitions, this chart pattern could be called a Bucket or Fan configuration. Technically it fits right between the two. It is claimed a lone planet is the point of emphasis, stands out, and in sunny Leo, it just might. However, unconnected, unsupported, it may just shine and fizzle. Or, unfettered, it may powerfully rise above at will! Jupiter in Leo is a tremendous teaching and leadership combination.

This New Moon, most closely tied with Saturn and in Saturn’s sign, launches Saturn’s sign change into Sagittarius Dec 23! During the New Moon, Saturn, the ruler of the Capricorn Stellium, is still in Scorpio. In some old time astrology, a semi sextile, the link that connects them, is said to affect health and wealth. Scorpio, the sign Saturn is in, is the sign of both! With Saturn at maturity, 29 degrees Scorpio, there are endings, completion, a sense of critical timing. The New Moon is at zero degrees Capricorn, an entire new beginning, by sign and degree! Time to let go and move on! Since Capricorn cherishes archetypes and reveres what’s time tested and true, keep those sacred reminders tucked away. Give due respect, renew your vows. Honor them with a new worthy approach.

Sun, Moon and Mercury sextile Neptune in Pisces, planet and sign of Spirit and Magic! Nurturing words, tender insights, mercy and empathy gentle the Soul. Listening becomes an embracing of difference. The heart sings a song and dreams can really come true.

FULL WOLF MOON Portal! First Moon of 2015!
Sunday Jan 4 at 8:53 PM Pacific – 14 Cancer 31 

Full Wolf Moon Capricorn Cancer

GRAND SQUARE IN CARDINAL SIGNS! It’s tight, 12,13, 14 degrees. There are the four squares at the corners and the oppositions crossing diagonally corner to corner. Moon and Sun make the primary opposition, being the Full Moon formation. This one has a little more kick than usual because the Sun in Capricorn has just been with Pluto. Secrets are known, maybe had some sex, monies discussed, vested with power, healing given and received. All is still not known, but the potential has been scanned and is being readied. Trust and sharing has been livened. Or if it’s called for, suspicion admitted. Time to shed the denial, the Phoenix to rise.

Moon in Cancer is going crazy wanting to protect, but is a tad too far away to interfere. Watch and wait. Feel and offer support as soon as possible. Or, just let go. Take a few days off and see what shakes. Children are of prime concern because some are too young to make all their decisions on their own. Foresee as much as you can. Fortify them, then pray they choose well on their own. Let them know about inappropriate behaviors, their own or others’, to move away from jeopardy as soon as their radar alerts them. Not a time to make loans or invest in too-good-to-be-true ventures.

Moon in Cancer, it’s own sign, opposite Sun/Pluto in Capricorn. Moon is intuitional and can read secretive Pluto. Sometimes. Pluto knows what Moon wants. Sun in Capricorn knows there are undercurrents and may be embarrassed, may avoid getting into the fray. Getting to work may be their antidote. Moon may ask for more than can be given. Pluto may play this scenario with intent to heal in the long term. So, as possible, get the cards on the table. It may seem insolvable at first, but stay with good will. Listen to differences without judgment as well as you can. And some of it is the Serenity Prayer ~ give us the serenity to accept what cannot be changed, the courage to change what can be changed, and the wisdom to know the one from the other.

Cardinal Signs make new beginnings! They are leaders. Aries is the primal fire starter, alive with ideas they instantly get going! Cancer cares for us. No one has to tell them to. Chicken soup appears. Libras can’t help themselves; they have to meet you and make relationships community wide. Capricorn works by nature. They are Builders, ascend the heights, are intrepid without thinking about it.

This Grand Square is crisscrossed by the Libra/Aries Nodes, with Uranus in Aries at the South Node! Uranus in Aries is a fire starter of ideas like none other. At the South Node it brings ideas forward from the Past, but in new clothes! They are the same, but more of the current times, even of the future! it may take some adjusting to not shy away, but to blink your eyes a few times, then jump on it! Flip these across to Libra and your ideas will be finessed in finery and taken as valuable consorts to ideas already on the books or proposed. All of a sudden, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts!

Chiron at 13 Pisces is in a Bow pattern with Moon and Sun, that’s trine the Moon, sextile the Sun. Chiron suffers sometimes, especially in Pisces, there are matters of the Spirit/Soul. Disappointments with ones we believed in, the World. Sometimes the Light is thin. As we become Teachers, we see how much it takes to be one and we start to understand. As we go through centuries, aeons of time, we see how much change there has been and that it is no snap of the fingers. Just like from being a child to becoming a parent ourselves. And one day we do healings, another step of Being. We make relationships, do the business of life.

In harmony with Moon, Chiron resolves feelings that got tangled, jammed to a standstill in a weeping puddle. Pisces is the most delicately tuned of all the water signs. Cancer remembers and often retains the residue of old hurts. Pisces sees your pain and the pain of the one who caused the pain. They sometimes can dissolve and wash away the chain of the generations. A gift beyond measure.

In step with Sun, Chiron sees the indwelling need to be in the Heart. Capricorn has a sense of duty, sometimes one’s family’s heritage, sometimes to one’s natural own self, sometimes divine. If we are falsely living the expectations of another, Pisces sensitizes us to this discrepancy, sometimes making it impossible to continue. What a relief. This good aspect also shows us initial possibilities to help us start anew. All it may take is a small change that was right there for the taking all along. You can do it. If you are all alone, give yourself a hug and start living that pure purpose.

Mercury conjunct Venus in Aquarius sextile Saturn newly in Sagittarius! With a twinkle in the eye, a lift of the eyebrow, a shake of the head, a silly snort, sing out that crazy idea! Sure, some will laugh. Why not? When they get over it, get down to business and tell them why it’s better than sliced bread! Aquarius likes a little kink in their coffee, and Saturn in Sag has a tad of devilishness behind that get-it-done don’t’-mess-with-me facade. But do tell why your idea will work for more than 5 minutes, no matter how entertaining it is! Aquarius loves world changers, and Sag will travel the world with it! Everyone will be a little intoxicated with Saturn newly lifted out of Scorpio. Sagittarius is famous for its sense of well being and optimism! Time to ordain the new program!

We are having the first taste of Saturn square Neptune in Pisces. It will be exact first of three Nov 26, 2015. We’ve been talking about Chiron in Pisces. Neptune is the planet of Pisces. Saturn rules bedrock and ice; Neptune rules the ocean and tides, constant change. Sometimes it is out of control and Saturn may help stabilize. Sometimes it operates on whim while Saturn wants reason. Saturn finds out there doesn’t always need to be a reason, it just is. Neptune’s intuition can save Saturn’s bacon let alone hours of work. In some ways they aren’t so far apart. Neptune is becoming one with God; Saturn does honor by being the planet of Spiritual Law, Divine Order, the GateKeeper, Guardian. See more!

Father Sun will be conjunct the Harp Star, Vega, the brightest star in the constellation Lyra. It is the second brightest star in the northern celestial hemisphere! An old time astrologer wrote ‘It is said to give an harmonious, poetical and developed nature, fond of music and apt in science and art, but inclined to theft.’ Woops. So keep your pinkies to yourself and no hacking! It is also said to be linked to magic, divine spells, and charisma! Another says ‘Vega provides a multiplicity of opportunity. Our bright star with Lyra’s brightest star just may make it happen!

Lady Moon is conjunct Sirius, the Dog (WOLF) Star, The Chieftain’s Star, the brightest star in our night sky! If you have a clear night, you WILL be able to see them close together depending on your location and time of night! Auspiciously, Sirius rising signaled the flooding of the Nile, guaranteeing the land’s fertility! Some say it’s a star of success, can be on the extravagant side. With the Moon, it is said to bring success in business, good health, beneficial changes in home or business. It heightens the beneficial qualities of the planet it is affiliated with! Star expert Bernadette Brady (Venus/Jupiter Aquarius) says gain is far more than expected — the mundane becoming sacred. I hope it is your good fortune to have it well placed in your birth chart and that this Full Wolf Moon is well connected with your chart too!

Time to step into the Portal, across the Threshold…perfect time to walk a labyrinth in the MoonLight!

Capricorn 2015 Full Wolf Moon Astrology Chart


The next New Moon is on January 20, starting Aquarius! It will be the fourth of Five in a row that start their signs, 2014 Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn, and 2015 Aquarius and Pisces, all at ZERO degrees!

Uranus square Pluto!  Thor, Chris 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)!

Mar 16, 2015 brings the LAST Uranus square Pluto! Since Uranus is currently in a retrograde to direct station, the aspect is held at about 1 degree FOR 3 MONTHS, continuously until that final seventh aspect March 16, 2015! After that, there will likely be a year to five year integration period of all the profound changes.

This is not a time to give up! Uranus in Aries is here to disrupt the status quo, set us free, see the new Light! It wants to see change, NOW! Fight for it in a good way! Pluto, the Healing Serpent, wants to clear the deepest tunnels of dead debris, the leavings of things gone by that clog the system, slow it way down, or stop it entirely, unable to carry its own weight anymore. Capricorn, the sign Pluto is in, wants what’s best, but sometimes it’s a devil of a time letting go. Guardians that they are, they want to be really sure to do the right thing for the long term. Lives may depend on not being premature or being too late to act.

Changing the underpinnings of things, the very foundations of existence, requires Thor’s hammer, OR a very light touch. Uranus in Aries doesn’t feel like it has the time for intricate delicate dealings and is concerned if too much time goes by momentum is lost, things will slither back to their hiding places. A lot of time and effort would be to no avail and precious change delayed for too long. Relationships, family and financial matters, careers, community, one’s place in the world today are in profound question.

If your planetary degrees are activated, 8 to 16, or more degrees if you are super sensitive, radical things may happen! That’s the whole point! AstroLogical aspects are for evolution, the planets symbolizing synchronicity, change, flow, even it there are bumps in the road! Don’t hide, and don’t hold back. Be present and fully engaged in the opportunities available! You may not get the whole picture right away, perhaps while nursing a few war wounds, but give it time. Part of the nature of this combination is surprises, the unexpected! The signs that could be most challenged are Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn. Grab it and run with it!

For you Aries, it may be one of the most exciting rides you ever had! Your prowess will be maximized, tested, restrained and encouraged at the same time! Your response time may be quickened, more focused. At moments you may feel old before your time, but those insane moments of maturity may save your life, or save time and make you the winner! Place your protests where they will bring return. It’s not a time to lose respect by flailing and missing the mark. Though usually independent, you may be delighted to find surprise allies who are going your way just as fast as you are! In fact, you, of all people, may be pressed to keep up!

Cancers feel fine with those protective Capricorns. Challenges come when your kids rebel, when your aging parent needs more care, a co-worker needs more than you can give, your home is threatened, your mate is eyeing the candy. Ha! Or it may be you, bored, bored, bored. Not even a cookbook perks you up. However, the Matriarch has ever been strong, those pioneer women persevered. Maybe it is time to open your own business ~ Cancers are #1 at business. They have a natural sense of cycles, intuit the market. They are good day traders. They feed armies, restaurant customers, school kids. They are pros getting people calmed in emergencies and are excellent in the housing market. Memory serves you well. Get out the watercolor brushes, check out your genealogy, the local antique store.

For some Libras, this is just all too much. The valance is disturbed; things are in a different kind of balance now. But Librans are expert at swift compromise, intelligent at incorporating new ways, establishing intercultural affluence. They know how to refine, dress to accommodate the invitation or gauntlet life brings. They dance with Beauty, turn the tables to conviviality, marry with wisdom, make fair and clever Robinhood trades! Though at times they appear vulnerable to being pushed around, this kind of aspect may push them to finally make that decision. Even if it is wrong, it is a start! Aries admires the audacity of it; Capricorn would love to have you succeed too. Cancers may want to nurture you to your full strength, chicken soup and all!

Capricorn looks powerful, formidable, almost every moment. It’s their job. With Pluto there, they have probably been pummeled a bit, faced demons and success! Having seen that many live through events of their worst fears, yes, get embarrassed, but are also patted on the back as one of us now. Relieved and more compassionate, they are amenable to working shoulder to shoulder as respected equals no matter the rank. The wild changes no longer cause a tightening in fear, but are seen more as triggers for something that needed fixing all along. Life gets better. There are things we can do better. Yep. We are who we are. There are things we can do really well. Ok. First we pay the bills, rent. Then, as we choose the more powerful solutions toward long term goals, doing things we love best, we get more secure in our success, not guilty for it. Life gets good in our heart too. Cancers say they knew it all along. Libra helps you get better at social events, and introduces you to the right people. Bless them. Aries says NEXT!

Call on the Powers of these primal four directions ~ Self/Spirit Light, Home & Family, Others/Mates and Partners, Career and Success of your Soul’s Work.

Stand tall, Love deep, Live well! Steady in the Light.

First time into Sagittarius Dec 23!

Saturn into Sagittarius, Nancy Norris Vinson
At age 61, Nancy Norris, IMG, International Mountain Guide, Climber and Board of Directors Member for the American Alpine Club, on the summit of Vinson Massif 16,067′, Antarctica, Dec 15, 2005

Reach the Peak of Your Personal Power and Achievement! Time to finish things Scorpio with Saturn flavors. Clear the decks so you can move forward cleanly, with a solid foundation, into Sagittarius. Bury deep and safe, or out your Scorpio secrets, so truth telling Sag can only share what is good to be known.

Know where your monies are. Be able to account for what you have and what you are doing with it. Be sure insurances are up to date. Make or update your will. Apply for fundings. Update your mortgage, or not.

Adjust your career, work of your life. Deep satisfaction keeps you healthy. Get that feeling that you are making a profound difference. Get paid worthily for what you give; give worthily to get it. No abuse in the work place, of any kind, sexual, verbal, emotional. No bullying. Give and get respect. It’s not just leadership; it’s a sharing of Being that brings us all to the top of our game.

If you are not the world’s greatest lover, man or woman, learn more. Sex is a sacred experience as well as just being amazing when it’s good. Be true to your mate, clean up any messes, move on if that’s best.

Take responsibility for your personal health. Clear up chronic patterns. Get support. No being lazy. Keep yourself in top form. Exercise reasonably, eat a balanced diet without obsession, rest well, keep hydrated.

As a healer, really listen. Sometimes that’s all it takes. That makes others know they are worth listening to, and that alone makes them listen to themselves. Take time out to prevent burn out. Know when you can’t help a client, patient, student or they have learned all they can with you. Move them along to their next step. Keep learning, keep up on what’s new in your field. This will be even more true when Saturn is in Sagittarius, a sign of teaching!

On a 29 Year cycle, Saturn enters Sagittarius the first time Dec 23! That’s two days after Winter Solstice, Yule, three days into Sun in Capricorn, and just in time for the holidays! There could be serious flight delays, last minute cheap fares, grinchy accommodations, last minute surprise arrivals, amazing after holiday bargains! No matter what, it’s a time of giving your love no matter who you are with or where you are! Saturn will be in Sagittarius until June 14, 2015 when it retrogrades back into Scorpio to review, pass any final tests, and finally finish Scorpio. It reenters Sagittarius from Sep 17, 2015 to Dec 19, 2017. Saturn was last in Sagittarius Nov 1985 to Feb 1988, and June to Nov 1988.

Saturn in Sagittarius, the Master Teacher, considers the daily working ethic, as well as profound ethics that stand the test of time. We learn in every level we work at, sometimes humbly on our very knees no matter how high ranking we think we are. Our children teach us. Religion and source of life, where our Souls are traveling to and how we do it, are important. Some philosophies will be rigid, perhaps challenged and crumble, to our great fear, devastation, humiliation. Others will be built brick by brick, true and respected, prove their worth. Saturn chisels out the faults, a Master Craftsman at work. Let go and get light. What needs protection will be guarded. Where keys and a gate are needed, they will be installed.

Work that has been carried on beyond it’s time will likely be let go. Certain bothersome fragments will be let go; the time tending them will be better spent. Other work will be satisfactorily completed against the odds through sheer perseverance and righteous optimism. The tower is completed, the summit reached. The structure is strong. On the other hand, do periodic checkups to watch for use of cheap shoddy materials, unsafe shortcuts. Funding needs to be adequate to the time and materials rightfully needed.

Money considerations will blow hot and cold. Sagittarius is optimistic, Saturn not. Sag wants to buy the big one, and thinks more money can come anytime, and sometimes that’s true, no need to worry. Saturn cautiously tries to keep things on schedule as planned. And that can work too. Keep a basic bank balance; stay connected to supporters. Travel in the line of business makes excellent sense. Travel prices may be lowered. Good time for traveling seniors at locations medical care is easily available. Gambling will be curtailed.

Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, can be quite the lover, perfect timing. In Sagittarius, that might be wildly like a rogue on the office desk, along the road, in the motel on a business trip! Saturn may also be quite conservative, or Sag, loving a good tryst, might try the senior partner, a seasoned warrior! If you choose a traveler at the Conference, have a great time, but don’t expect them to stay around.

Sagittarius rules hips and thighs and your liver. God knows what happens to hips and thighs. Thankfully, Saturn is a conscientious monitor, is good at keeping vows. Eat less kibble is what my Vet says to me about my dog. More veggies, less fatty foods, candy, chocolate, alcohol. Sag loves to get outdoors and exercise. Hopefully that will help your hips and thighs too.

As to your liver, it is a sacred organ. You must have something to live FOR. Don’t tax your system with overeating, too many things to do, other people’s business. Being generous has its limits. You can’t fool yourself when your body talks. Be true to yourself, be real, mind your own business first. You are the one who lives in your body and you can’t help others when your body is down.

Saturn is up on commitments, responsibility to long term plans. Sagittarius is the long term plan specialist, a teacher of note. Generation after generation Sagittarians carry the word. They think nothing of telling great stories that make us laugh, cry, yet inspire hope. They are optimistic the journey can be made. Saturn is willing to make that trek, climb the rocky mountain, even through snow and ice they carve the way. They don’t forget where we are going or why. Tremendous support team. Sagittarius, ever compensating in a good way, says even if we lose, we’ll make the news! And it was fun!

Finish up that writing that you started long ago. Do the publishing. Share your ideas, prophecy. Take your sweet place along the road of Life.

This foray into the future, Sagittarius, seeing where our choices can take us, prepares us for Saturn retrograding back into Scorpio June 14 to Sep 17! Saturn returns to the comfort of dark Scorpio. Our efforts will be even more dedicated. We will seriously and more precisely finish establishing allies, both in business and financially.

Also, this will help prepare the way for upcoming Jupiter in Virgo Aug 11, 2015. Jupiter happily moves right along; Virgo would rather just work than stop to make those connections, no matter how necessary they are. Saturn’s gotta do it. Scorpio, the Healer, will get funding for Virgo the Nurse and Midwife, healing research. Saturn, the Manager, will make sure funds are allocated and secured; Virgo, the Accountant, will organize the allotments, be sure papers are signed, insurances up to date, the Will is notarized. Frugal Saturn loves it when Virgo counts the pennies.

Saturn in Scorpio will clear personal relationships – sex, jealousy, spending choices, custody. Hopefully this time there will be real healing, a clear promise. Clearing relationships will contribute to Virgo’s better health so they can work without worry. Well timed, a poised Spirit, flows in peace.

Saturn goes back into Sagittarius Sep 17, 2015. See more!

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!

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!

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.
