New Moon! Four Planets in Pisces, Mercury Cardinal T Square, Venus!
First New Moon of 2017 is Friday January 27, 4:07 PM Pacific at 8 Aquarius 15!

Aquarius is a fantastic sign! Aquarians have amazing minds, from scrambled to genius, bodies unlike no other, have been to the wildest places, have friends beyond your ken. With both the Moon and Sun in the same place at the same moment it’s like high wires sizzling! Don’t expect the usual blather or time to stand still. It’s like twins with their own language, only these Beings are tuned in to the Galactic Center, the hub of our galaxy that connects with other galaxies! If your chart has factors at or very close to 8 degrees, you will be on the Grid with them and catch some of the Universal News! New Moons end one cycle, begin another. Aquarius makes it snappy!
The semi sextile with Neptune, in its own sign Pisces, will catch rare bits of script that will cast a spell over passages, some becoming illuminated like a lightning bolt, alive to the point of making you think you will leave your body! Other parts will be placed in the denial category to be sifted later by the subconscious into tolerable proportions. Insights and visions of the semi sextile, and the three other planets in Pisces, will be as vivid dreams that seem so real you don’t believe they didn’t happen, and when they do, you WILL remember!
Venus in Pisces
The preceding Jupiter inconjunct Chiron in Pisces of Dec 31 feathers out its new ideas about healing, spreads the word among colleagues and contacts, polishes the local artifacts, draws out beauty and charity. They are steadily in their inconjunct until they do it again exact on Valentine’s Day! Venus just went by Chiron in her gypsy veils, gave Chiron a sweet kiss. Been awhile since someone noticed him that way. So he is warmed and charmed, gave her a gift. She told Jupiter about it and he, in her sign Libra, thinks the information can be taught, maybe published!
As she squares Saturn, she makes him remember his square with Chiron Dec 28, what sorrows that may have brought, perhaps bittersweet breakthroughs too that still may need some repairs and integration. Venus may have doubts, moments of hesitation, need to comfort or lend a hand. She assures him there are dear Soulmates out there and his time will come. He assesses how well she is doing, reminds her of the long term goals and how important they are. She straightens, yet we know she will do it her way in Pisces, as she must. She is even more a believer in Pisces, but good old Saturn is the task master and he knows being on time can make or break our progress. We know he is right, so we get back on course with renewed focus.
Venus is then on her way to bless Mars in Pisces, but he quickly changes into his own sign Aries! He changes the same day as the New Moon, at 9:39 PM Pacific! The next day is Chinese New Year, the year of the Red Fire Rooster! How apropo that Mars, the red fire planet, is in Aries, the red sign, right on time for that day! He leaves Venus behind while she begins to slow to retrograde, so the connection isn’t made. They may converse about Piscean matters, but he has to carry her wishes on without her. Likely he will because she asked him so kindly and in Aries he takes action! He is, after all, the Champion, the Hero!
Jupiter sextile Saturn in Sagittarius has been and is still quite close, but Jupiter is backing away, stilling to retrograde Feb 5. So they discuss the projects, but for the time being Saturn will need to carry the building forward while Jupiter thinks things over in Libra. Jupiter will think on who does which work best, proportions – how much of this and that, beauty versus necessity. They will come back together, make their exact connection, complete their project Aug 27.
Cardinal T Square! Mercury potently conjunct Pluto, Square Uranus and Jupiter! Cardinal signs gets things started! Mercury is very earthly logical, practical in Capricorn, and looks at the extremes with Pluto. From birth to death, poverty to billionaires, cheating to ’til death do us part, impotent to charismatic! Uranus in Aries lights the Spirit afire, may have burnout, leave outgrown friends behind only to find ones with ideas far ahead of their times. It may be alone or working on an international project that uses every minute fraction of their mental physics, consumed with creation! All this calls Jupiter in Libra to record the story, recode it for the lay person. Jupiter is not afraid of far reaching effects, expands the territory with alacrity! It requires Jupiter’s ability to grasp the magnitude of the perceptions then balance them cleverly in Libra so there is a stunning play of wholeness achieved! The Aquarian overtone adds the innate need for it to work as above, so below, as in nature, air over Earth.
Amongst all the unpredictable Aquarius New Moon, Jupiter loving switching sides in Libra, Venus sashaying about, all that mutable morphing Pisces, and Mercury stirring the Pluto point of the cardinal get-things-started brew, know that you don’t know! It may take months to decipher what happened! It will be computers and beyond computers. It will be the most pristine data but put together in a way that defies what most people think and will even make Aquarians wonder!
It is a perfect first New Moon for 2017! Earth, Science, and Heavenly Magic!

LUCKY Grand Fire Trine Sun KITE, Mystic Rectangle, Chiron Yod, Two Midpoints!
Friday February 10, 4:33 PM Pacific at 22 Leo 28

The First Eclipse of 2017 has a complex bouquet, is laden with opportunities!
This is a rare total Penumbral Eclipse! The Moon moves through the faint, outer part of the Earth’s shadow. It is often hard to differentiate between a normal full Moon and a penumbral eclipse of the Moon, but watch closely, at the time, for deep penumbral shading on the north half of the lunar disk! The apparent diameter of this Moon is larger than average since the eclipse occurs 4.4 days after perigee (nearest Earth).
It is still a line up, Sun, Earth, Moon. Aquarius Sun will shine on the part of Earth facing the Sun, infusing his Light. In light wave fashion, Sun moves the molecules, Earth transmits and filters this energy to Mother Moon waiting in the Shadow. Moon in Leo is receptive, absorbent, generously cradling, nurturing. She returns her own Light of the heart, delicately mingling, intertwining like DNA flowing both directions, with the incoming Light, through Earth, back to Sun, giving her support, showing how much we care. She has a lot of Love to give.
Full Moon at 22 degrees is most closely tied with Chiron at 22 Pisces. Sun semi sextiles its neighbor. Moon is inconjunct, an aspect of peripheral awareness and adjustment. What might have started as a nuisance, a sense of being misaligned, becomes an adjunct factor that invites and enriches. It is less directly involved, so has less bias. It could even become the next branch, or the new main direction! Moon is a nurturer and senses Chiron’s needs though in Pisces they can seem more whimsical than real. If there are debilitating addictions, it is more serious. Moon is experienced and sees the nuances of value, and in Leo is uplifting. Moon in Leo may always be concerned to do its best, be on. Chiron sees any weaknesses and subtly advises reasonable moderation and self care. Chiron may be able to do some oblique healing from that off center angle.
Chiron YOD! With Chiron’s inconjunct Moon, it is also inconjunct Jupiter, a more long term aspect, forming a ‘Y’! The inconjunct with Jupiter is strong, because as Chiron moves forward into it, Jupiter is retrograding back to meet it! Their first exact aspect was Dec 31, 2016, the last aspect of 2016. It is holding now closely until it makes the second exact aspect on Valentine’s Day! The adjustment this inconjunct requires is a fine tuning of our beliefs, acknowledging healing needed, updating how we teach and speak, our life work and relationship choices. Those are big topics. One alone would be big, but now they are unifying as a whole! Jupiter wants you to look further ahead, to add good will, trust you will do ok, to connect you higher up the food chain in a good way. Allow that!
Chiron is at the semi sextile MIDPOINT between Sun and Uranus. The amazing astronomical geometry about the Chiron/Uranus combination is that it started Nov 2008 and continues through Sep 2021, a total of THIRTEEN years! See more The Sun of this Eclipse lights it right up! Sun semisextiles Chiron, sextiles Uranus, the Aquarian planet! Chiron watches, perhaps silently, in Pisces, noticing the beauty of their bringing the masses to a new level of awakening, how our differences are our contributions. New songs are written in a flash, an acceptable unique style arises! A penumbral Eclipse is a subtle wellspring. Sun/Uranus will use blatant excitement and wild word cues that spark curiosity that had lain dormant but is now eager! Chiron may whisper a caution here or there, or lean forward when the cues are perfectly unzipped!
LUCKY Grand Fire Trine Sun KITE, Mystic Rectangle!
Only one point is missing, the Gemini position, to make a Grand Sextile! See all those connected green lines in the chart?! Moon bases a Grand FIRE Trine KITE pattern!
The Mystic Rectangle is composed of two parallel trines, Moon trine Uranus and Sun trine Jupiter! The Rectangle is completed by sextiles, Moon sextile Jupiter, and Sun sextile Uranus! SO many lucky aspects! Read on….
The Grand trine Kite is the Moon, Saturn, Uranus Grand trine with the Sun midpoint between Saturn and Uranus is the KITE!
- Moon trines Saturn in Sagittarius, a Mother to Father Time arrangement. There is harmony with the softness of women and the sweetness of children. Saturn is the Father, securing shelter, working for a long good life. Leo and Sagittarius are both teachers, so educational choices are blessed. Leo is a creator sign, of expression like performance, and through color and lighting. Saturn in Sagittarius so wants their project to excel, have a long life, contribute meaningfully. Their collaboration potential is exceptional.
- Moon trines Uranus in Aries, the planet of friendship, awareness, awakening, international community! Moon is your neighborhood, local community. Uranus is friends and world community! Moon is commodities of daily living, Uranus is the inventor that makes daily life more comfortable and fun. Moon has the memory banks of the matriarchy, history, an intuition that can’t be beat! Uranus is the holder of a hub of insights of future possibilities. Together there is a blessed alliance, rich progress!
- Saturn trine Uranus is a long term aspect, first happened Christmas Eve, Dec 24. It will retrograde soon and return to the trine, but not until May 18. It is within 4 degrees now, still mulling over how it will fold good changes into working living, how to repair any damages or difficulties that change has brought. Saturn is persistent, want to put things to good use. Though it is moving away for the time being, but that doesn’t mean it is giving up, not coming back. In Sagittarius it will have a good look about and discover more successful ways of making changes that bring better living, to broaden our range of possibilities.
- Sun in Aquarius is sextile MIDPOINT right between Saturn and Uranus making the KITE pattern! Saturn was the old ruler of Aquarius, Uranus is the current ruler of Aquarius! Earthy Saturn rules ancient things, archaeology, while airy Uranus rules inventions, planes, computers, the Internet! Times are bound by Saturnian Earth laws that will always be, by Karma and Dharma, what we have done and our mission each life. Uranus explores the outer reaches, keeps calling us forward in evolution, offers new ways to align disparate beliefs, awakens whole groups of people to their potentials! The Sun, Leo’s planet, puts warmth in this process, lights the way with love and heart that gives us the courage to step up! Strong friendships and community and world networks will figure in prominently.
Jupiter in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries knits this lucky pattern even further! Jupiter offers the blessings of connections both local and foreign, education, abundance possibly through grants and scholarships. Jupiter trine Sun, is a hella lucky, fame & fortune aspect! It gives an exemplary sense of personal confidence and trustworthiness, far reaching vision, enjoyable potential. Jupiter sextile Moon is another lucky prosperous aspect! Moon intuitively knows cycles, excellent for stock trades and investments. Moon gives Mother love, is strong and protective, while Jupiter supports relationships with peoples of different cultures, economic standing, faiths, ages.
Saturn sextiles Sun and trines Moon! Saturn is a grounding planet though now in Sagittarius is its more flexible in its demands. It may be more opinionated, but if a better way is demonstrated, it will make the change. Sun in Aquarius wants to be free and is easily bored, but Saturn in Sag can be wise enough to favorably gain their attention and contribute to the Sun’s research and international work. Saturn is at times a little old fashioned and stuffy and that is something Aquarius will never be! Saturn has to come up to speed in modern terms sometimes so things can progress in context of our current times. Yep, ok, understand, will do. See Moon trines Saturn above.
Another long term aspect is Saturn square Chiron. This one was exact the first time Dec 28. For some it brought sorrows and losses of all kinds depending on how it was with their personal charts. We lost Zsa Zsa Gabor, George Michael, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds and William Christopher in that period. The next exact aspect is April 30, and the last Nov 2. Saturn are things we are held responsible for, in Sagittarius it has to do with faith, learning, promoting, being ethical, truth without exaggeration or omits. Chiron in Pisces can be fragile or a powerful believer with profound visions. Saturn is a hard worker and will expect them to measure up, find ways to get the job done. Chiron invites Saturn to let go of chronic matters, rigid boundaries, harsh expectations. Some things are just bigger than we are and we must let go and grow with them, time changes the parameters. Sometimes a gentle approach with encouragement tips the scales.
Jupiter sextiles Saturn in Jupiter’s sign Sagittarius! Jupiter is still close though retrograding away. They have been together for months, so the considerations their combination brings is gradually seeping into our consciousness. It’s a working arrangement fueled by legal and amazing design advice, plus Saturn’s expertise at building structures that suit the environment. Work is a pleasure, education pays off, travel is a welcome component!
Apart from all the aspect network above, Mercury, also in Aquarius, is sextile Venus in Aries at the same degree, and Mars in its own sign Aries! This is a combination of brilliant intelligence! Mercury with Venus is the blessing of kind words, words that show love, are spoken like poetry, give appreciation! Aquarius and Mars and Aries are looking for freedom and independence. They can act potently alone, but paradoxically once they are free enough, mature in their Spirits, they are are free to choose to work together and in groups when it makes sense. There is that phrase, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Venus is slowing to retrograde March 4, so it doesn’t make the conjunction with Mars. She’s close enough to give Mars the current information, the inspiration of her gratitude! He will fight in her behalf, loves being the instigator, first one there, the fearless chief! He rises to challenge with super vitality!
Though Full Moons are oppositions, Moon opposite Sun, this one is laced with favorable connections. And if we think of planets opposite each other that doesn’t have to mean they are against each other. Think incorporation, collaboration! Each has their gift to give. In this case, Leo is the sign of the heart of Light, lovers! Valentine’s Day is the Aquarius holiday! Aquarius is the philanthropist, distributes wealth, has planet wide connections and projects for people, initiates environmental healing and maintenance. It is brotherly love, just a different dimension of the possibility of love in its wholeness!
With all my praises of these aspects, all those positive blue and green lines in the chart, they won’t be good for everyone, or will have no effect at all. They will only be good for those whose charts they activate in a good way. Please see your astrologer to find how they are situated per your personal chart. Also, the time of day events are initiated makes a huge difference and those times of day are not the same for every person. Please. See your astrologer.
That said, I wish you great success!
