Capricorn - Switzerland's Lara Gut Skiing

Saturn’s sign change is profoundly preceded by Sunday December 17’s New Moon, new beginning at 10:30 PM Pacific, at 26 Sagittarius 31, the Galactic Center! See more!
Three days after Saturn enters Capricorn, Dec 22 Mercury’s Sagittarius RETROGRADE ends! Mercury turns forward, Direct 5:51 PM Pacific. So Saturn’s entry into Capricorn this time is meant to reconsider many options, stay flexible. See more!

Fittingly, it’s just two days before Winter Solstice, Sun into Capricorn! Saturn readies itself for its own special time of year by jumping into its own sign, a double Capricorn effect! Goats love that jumping thing and they often have very steady footing, daring to go where no one even wants to go, even ice climbing! While some bears are napping in the dark, others are out on the slopes racing at top speed, invigorated, cold air rushing by, down to the bottom, then ready to go back to the top and do it again! Ice skating is an inspiring skill! If you think Capricorn is a stodgy old sign, think again! Winter has its own kind of excitement!

After the frolic is over, it is sweet time having a hearty meal with friends, sitting by the fire, sharing grog and stories of journeys and of having overcome amazing challenges. One by one, people go off to their rooms, maybe you are left with reminiscing, going over what you will do differently next time. Images stream by. A stretch and it’s time to rest for another brilliant crisp day. As much as Saturn is a hard worker, and play can be hard work, Saturn makes you know it’s good to take time for yourself. We need those between times.

On the ground, Saturn in Capricorn are expert at building sustainable homes that will last forever, be well lived in for the right price! Remarkable features might be beautiful stained glass windows, skylights, strong timbers, special insulation. Landscaping may include reclaimed fencing, skillful terracing and artful stonework installations. Restoration and renovation are natural for them. Utilities are low and sustainably rendered.

Between nature’s laws and the rules for safe construction, Saturn and Capricorn have a good sense of what works and what doesn’t. They are good at law enforcement, often take on a parental role, position of CEO, the boss. Chores may be important and no driving a car before your time or going out with ones older than you! Saturn might find us setting more clear boundaries for ourselves. We may become more clear how much time things take. Saturn with money planets or locations may require a strict budget. The other side of the coin is finances thrive, payback for long term hard work well done!

Saturn in Capricorn will likely bring more responsibilities to many who thought they couldn’t handle anymore! They may find themselves doing more than they ever expected, maybe even being asked to be the boss! Some will be pleased to find themselves doing quite well. Do negotiate a good salary, additional salary or a percent of the take. Others may find they need to back off and lighten the load. Chronic ailments sometimes stem from being too tired, tired all the time. Your body is not able to recover. As you get older, take that nap!

Knees may become important. Bending and proper surrender is a life skill. Overtaxing them has consequences. Bones and joints can only take so much stress. Don’t take yourself to the breaking point. Skin can suffer. Keep your pantry stocked with good quality food for road closed situations. Keep your body warm so you can get good rest.

In childhood, young Capricorns often have health challenges, but get super strong with age! They may be quite serious, but become cleverly funny, have a subtle wit, are truly funny comedians! Capricorn rules age. They are down to earth with a real smile when it comes. They deal with things as they happen and are often reliable to their friends even when they are down themselves. Saturn may bring some health cures, better living conditions and benefits for elders.

Saturn will reassesses relationships. Cappies take their relationships seriously. When they make a commitment their preference is to loyally keep it. Sometimes they stay too long. The other person may ‘need’ them. It has become a habit to suffer. They think it’s their fault. I’m no quitter. If I work hard enough and be a good person things will change. I’m too old to do this. Ok. Some of that may be true, but it doesn’t mean it will necessarily make it better. Take good care of yourself and talk with good solution oriented friends, advisors or counselors. If none of that is happening for you, wonderful! Keep letting your partner know how much you love them and are grateful they are in your life! They are lucky to have you!

SATURN RETURNS Saturn will be in Capricorn from Dec 19, 2017 and Dec 16, 2020. At the end of that time, Saturn will advance into Aquarius then retrograde back into Capricorn for awhile. If your Saturn is late Capricorn, check with your astrologer to see exactly when your Return is. Saturn was last in Capricorn 1988-91.

First Saturn Returns are at age 28/29. The second is about age 58. They can be serious. At age 28/29, many start lifelong careers, get significant promotions, get married, buy a house and the first child is on the way! For some, there can be hardships that cause delays and expected dreams never do come true. The Great Spirit has other plans for you. For some a Return may not even be a blip on the radar ’cause all’s well. 58 happens either way as well. There may be a second chance, retirement, a whole new tack in life! However it is, it will be Capricorn style.

CAPRICORN WITH OTHER SIGNS

Capricorn is the third and last of the Earth signs. The fertile lowlands and meadows, farms, are Taurus domain. Virgo tends the plants and animals, does superb property management, cleans the houses, is nanny to the children. Capricorn views them from that breathtaking hillside building they built, or from the high rise top floor, penthouse suite!

Earth signs generally get along with Water signs, but not always. Saturn/Cap is a hard worker. Pisces not so much. If the surf is up, they’re gone. If the business is music/film it can be a downright magical combination! Cancer and Cap are both highly interested in financial security, a good home for the family, family lineage, good jobs, long term relationships. Cap needs to consider their feelings, spend time with them. Scorpio is not only interested in superior financial commitments and insurance, a secure domain and business, but also needs dedicated and devoted relationships – both personal and business. Scorpio also wants your good health – state of mind and body. Capricorn is right on board with all that. Capricorn deeply values longevity and a history of success and integrity.

Saturn and Capricorn challenge the other Cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer and LibraAries is boss allergic, independent to a fault! They are innovative rather than obedient. They want to be first! Cap needs to give them room to maneuver. Cancers like a supportive mothering relationship, consideration of their feelings. Saturn/Cap is sometimes just all business. Either do the job now or come back when you can. They don’t have time for this, get someone else. And maybe they are right. Let it go and get work more to your Spirit. At home, Cap, make time for the family and don’t talk business at that special time. They love you. Libra is social and wants you to be polite. Cap can be so to the point they are brusque with no amenities. Libra may be caught crying in the restroom. If Libra wasn’t such a good front person and so artistic, Cap might send them packing in a minute. If your boss is a Sat/Cap type, see if they balance their sometimes lack of manners with respect and acknowledge your good work. Cap, do a little thinking first. It may be quite worth those extra moments.

That leaves Fire signs Leo and Sagittarius, and Air signs Gemini and Aquarius. Leo can be a little flamboyant, which often warms that Caps heart as they can walk proud with such a glamourous Being! Sagittarius is hard to pin down since they love to travel so much, so unless it’s a travel business they do together, Cap doesn’t feel they are reliable. Gemini just keeps Cap spinning. The information better be good and succinctly given or they are banished! Aquarius was born to break rules and Sat/Cap lives for rules. However, if they are collaborating in a community organization, it works!

If you are older than 28/29, wherever Saturn is in your birth chart right now is where it was 28/29 years ago! Do know that the other planets are NOT where they were 28/9 years ago, so there will be some the same and a lot not! Each of your houses or sections of your chart have special purpose. Whatever ways Saturn is aspecting planets or factors in your chart, it is often memorable, sometimes profound.

Please, always remember these planetary combinations are what’s happening in the world. Check with your astrologer to see how they do, or don’t, activate your personal chart! May it go very well with you….

Sagittarius! I’ll Take You There….

Sagittarius Kirkwood Mountain Resort Lake Tahoe CA

Mid November might find you at ski resorts, flying down slopes, or warming by the fire after a glorious day! Working at or on holiday, lights are on at Kirkwood Mountain Resort, Lake Tahoe CA Snow Report Forecaster Bryan Allegretto

‘I’ll take you there’ has a lot of options. A great trail guide, the Path through your neighborhood, a horse you love, buying a truck with 4 wheel tires, super sex, teaching sign language to the deaf, practicing your Faith, a march for land or people, being an informant. You might become famous or infamous or teach for 40 years seeing many changes. Your lucky chance may have put you on the map. You may think you have missed it and are regrouping, or you are still waiting for your time to come! Life takes many turns and has many precious moments!

A backpacker pal of mine always said ‘Pick a room with a view!’ That meant where you stopped for a trail break, to placing your tent for a perfect wake up view to start your next day. In your life, pick a room with a view – great people, a job that fills your heart, a location that sings to you, a home that sleeps you peacefully and requires only an amount of care that lets you be away for a period of time with no regrets!

Location, location, location! In Sagittarius’s mind, that’s often one to another, plenty of vacations! In business that can mean a franchise, import/exports, additional locations or special production locations! Sagittarians learn quickly and often move on, and it may not be on your schedule. Surf’s up in Africa or Australia (Sagittarian continent), snow fell & slopes are open! However, if your Sag has Mercury and/or Venus in Capricorn, they may stick around, quite dedicated to the work, or be excellent business people in world businesses that require travel. It’s more planned than impetuous.

What a rich fantasy life! Or it may be 100% real. They travel for food and culture and write the book or blog on world cuisine. Their observations of sacred places are keen, forthright, and show a perspective that paints an irresistible picture of an adventure that is there in the offing. If they aren’t writing, they are publishing! They recognize a good read! Images of world people make you want to go there to help or be taught or both…or just be with them for a time. Sagittarians give you outrageous tips on how to travel cheap or in luxury beyond compare! You may need physical assistance – hire a travel helper, get the perfect accommodations and choose gentle nearby places to see by transportation. If you are young and at prime, it may be no less than Kathmandu, and often cross country! Depending on your game, you might be traveling through sacred portals checking out other dimensions!

Goofy or brilliant, friendly, great storytellers, Sagittarians are usually welcome wherever they go. They are interested in who you are, what you believe, what you do and how you do it. They don’t mind getting dirty, love dancing at night! Sadly, there are times the TruthTeller is unknowingly rude with questions or comments, or offensively loud per the occasion. True, sometimes there are unfriendly areas or times of danger with narrow escapes! But lucky as they are and always forward thinking, without thinking they have already subconsciously, intuitively noted backdoors and escape routes. They are quick to respond, and they are away!

Sagittarians are a spirited fire sign and generally healthy forever! If you are senior, the backcountry and off the beaten track days may be over. A tour group, places that have medical services you might anticipate needing are your best choices. Otherwise you might be perfectly able to take your chances and the local shaman will take care of you. Rest at the Temple. When you are in town, at home, take good care of your body. Do what keeps your health. Avoid long term behaviors that have consequences later on. Aging is a reality and it always comes sooner than we want, LOL!

Relationships may be a challenge. Saggies can make big promises and tell you what they think will make you happy because they want you to be happy. But it may not be them that is the one. At first arrival they might think they can do it, but then they are gone. If they have a history of traveling, see if you would like to go with them. If you aren’t made of the same stuff, at some point you may come home and they go on. Could be bittersweet – the adventure of a lifetime, but you miss them terribly. So get to know your Sag. They are big Souls. If you always wanted to go on a big trip, do it. But don’t keep them prisoner.

Some Sagittarians are quite opinionated, narrow minded, and passionately so! If you are of the same opinions, no problem. Most have a wide angled philosophy, glad to meet anyone, anywhere, anytime! Half horse, half human, Sagittarian centaurs are their own brand of ‘biracial!’ They are naturally accommodating of, tolerate differences, or, in fear of their own true wildness, vehemently oppose difference! The open side of them learns from every race, culture, faith and age. They see the goodness each has to offer. But if the range of strange they are capable of is too much for you, it’s fun to watch for awhile, then you may fade away. The middle ground is good – a few hot opinions, plenty of learning.

They are both hunters and gatherers. They are seekers of greater wisdom. They gather the diamonds as they go. Sag is what we call a mutable sign, adaptable. They can pull off mergers of informations and people like no one else! They magically appear in your life, adjust a few factors, clear up some of your thinking, then vanish to their next spiritual assignment, walking the BlessingWay of all, women and men. As the Winged Pegasus, they fly above guiding the way.

Sagittarius 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Sagittarius Geminids Meteor Shower West

December 13, 14 – The Geminids, king of the meteor showers!

After being washed out by the 2016 December supermoon, the Geminids will come roaring back in 2017 near the New Moon, a darker sky! The famous and bright meteor shower will peak on the night of Dec. 13 and morning of Dec. 14.

The Geminids are considered one of the best meteor showers every year because the individual meteors are bright, and the peak can see meteors stream across the sky at rates as high as 120 meteors an hour. Under light-polluted skies, fewer meteors will be visible.

The Geminids meteor shower is nearly 200 years old, according to known records — the first recorded observation was in 1833 from a riverboat on the Mississippi River — and is still going strong. In fact, it’s growing stronger. That’s because Jupiter’s gravity has tugged the stream of particles from the shower’s source ― the asteroid 3200 Phaethon ― closer to Earth over the centuries.

Outer Planet Transit Aspects Sagittarius 2017 – Dec 2018!

Sagittarius Snowy Mountains Oh, Darling, Let's Be Adventurers

And so we shall!

  1. We are now starting a string of astrologically positive aspects that adventure through Nov 1 2018!
  2. Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Sagittarius’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see. Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8. 
  3. RETROGRADES! July 25 to Aug 18 we have a Mars/Mercury double retrograde. Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back!.

Things will be dug up, soil turned, soups, stews and mixed salads made! We will all be quite different and get used to multiple kinds of change! We will be more comprehensive, more aware and alert to things we never considered before, expanded.

Pluto in Capricorn reaches the beginning of the last third of Capricorn May 2018 moving from 16 to 21 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Water and earth Pluto and Capricorn are at times a challenge for Sagittarius. They have a more collected tone, a powerful distillation of techniques, practices tested by expert elders, that have stood the tests of Time. There may be a serious commitment to be made before joining the ranks, but the reward may be worth it forever. Just be sure you want to know and owe that much. Will you have freedom to make changes of your own? All that may seem somewhat like limits to Sagittarius, but if their goals are in accord, Sag is a clever one, pushing from behind. Sag buoys up the workers ahead, reminding them of the importance of the goal and assuring them they can do it! Good to have them with you!

Neptune is in its own sign, a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. When in those degrees, fiery Sagittarius is dampened, yet inspired by Neptune. Pisces sees beyond within, a greater picture. Sagittarius sees across the valley, follows the path of the arrow arching over the rainbow! Sag is ever optimistic, and sooner or later can see through Neptune’s veil. At times when Neptune would give up, Sagittarius reminds him of the Soul purpose Sagittarius sees in him. Sagittarius is called to step up to Neptune’s music, wordless wisdom, to behold the dreams of the vastitudes beyond a merely earthly journey…

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 2 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a automatic. In Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries is the first to DO it! Fire and electricity make the world go around! Fiery Sagittarius loves the neverending vanishing point! Journeying is a verb. How far can we go?! Sagittarius’s purposes are stretched to the limit by universal Uranus! Uranus is the SkyKeeper, the one who sees all Humanity. Sagittarius is always skittering and scattering all the jewels of knowledge it can to anyone who will listen and take on the project! Aries is the Leader of New, so they make perfect companions!

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Taurus tries out the application. It needs to be easy to use, worth the effort. It calls for a steady and practical solution. But Uranus is the Earth Shaker and there may be clusters of shakes! Your life may be loosened, electrified, askew, a bit out of control. Sagittarius may be frustrated by the slow down and delays, but is a mutable, super adaptable sign. It takes the pieces offered, integrates them in such a way that they are innately speeded up, so happy in their most august rightful magical places! Sagittarius may enjoy some slowing down to smell the roses and feel good to have done the deed! Not still for long though, because his long vision eyes and consciousness see more possibilities and he’s off again!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, covers 24 Pisces to 2 Aries, the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes, Aries initiates. Chiron enters Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees and signs, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Though also in Pisces, Neptune is between 11 and 17 degrees while Chiron is in the last degrees, 24 to 29. Your chart factors need to match up with these degrees for them to have effect. Neptune is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Chiron leads Sagittarius through miraculous channels of energy flow, not a feet on the ground type of traveling. Sagittarius is ever observant, watching the directions, sign posts along the way. He wants to possibly have later access, review the practices of the Healer in action, that he, Sagittarius, may have the divine privilege of teaching to others when they are ready for this magic.

When Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will speed up healing at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance! During those years, Chiron will be intriguing Sagittarius, a very willing follower on a seemingly inscrutable path. Sagittarius will be seeing not just with his eyes, but with his very Soul! Chiron in Aries will challenge, taunt, and there will be laughs! Kokopelli dances before us, dashing and silly, but has our attention! He is unique beyond words, almost scary, he does know the way better than we do! Sagittarius is right at home!

SATURN builds from 26 Sagittarius, the Galactic Center, to 10 Capricorn now through December 2018. Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020.

Right now Saturn is IN Sagittarius at the degree of the Galactic Center! That leaves only 4 more degrees in very late Sag, 26, 27, 28, 29. Only if you have planets at those late degrees will there be any more activation of them by Saturn in Sag. Work and play. Travel and people. Building and lasting Beauty. Cathedrals. History and future potential. Creating a profound curriculum. Lot of nice options here, connections being made. Learning and observing leads to restored faith and this year, especially as applied to recovery from fires, floods, quakes. Ideas for whole new businesses have and will spring up.

Saturn Returns, every 28 to 29 years, can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! If you are on your first Return, you may be having substantial career success, marry, have your first child, buy a home! If you are on your second Return, about age 58, you may be thinking of retirement plans, be called to take care of aging parents. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from experienced experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive.

Those with Saturn 26 to 29 degree Sagittarius in your charts will be having your Sagittarian Saturn Returns between now and Dec 19! Sagittarians are seers, looking across the mountains, over the rainbow, keenly to the arrow’s target far, far away. Saturn knows so much is doable. One step, one board, a brick at a time, the framework will go up. Sagittarians will have their learning place built, the very process teaching hope. They are optimistic and faithful to the cause. When that one is built, on to the next!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better or you start your own business!

In Capricorn, Saturn’s own sign, Sagittarius will be led further than philosophy! Saturn wants to build a place for it! The home with a view, the school that withstands tumults of nature or age. Capricorn assures sustainability, the future Sag has been talking about! Together they see the future and use land and materials wisely. Saturn demonstrates Sagittarian proposals better than Sag could by himself! Sag is corralled into being the project overseer, consultant, even hired from another country that has had the experience. Saturn and Sagittarius are dynamite together! Saturn works like a dog, leaps like a goat! If the cause is dear to Sag’s heart, he’s on board, brings the horses!

Those of you with Saturn 0 to 10 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age may become a factor, retirement. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

JUPITER moves from 9 Scorpio to 10 Sagittarius!

Jupiter in Scorpio!
Scorpio wants you to heal, to heal your relationship and be healed by them, and increase your financial potential! Scorpio charisma is compelling, and has nothing to do with beauty. It is from a wellspring within. Scorpio is doctorhood, from cleansing your personal plumbing, purging toxins, to forensics. Scorpio often has extraordinary personal healing capacity, and can save your life too! They want to know how things work, do research. Jupiter may take Scorpio worldwide to seek investments, study shamanistic skills, find answers to lifesaving questions. Old remedies the midwives knew may come back into use. Through journalistic research justice may come for those who have suffered long extreme abuse – land grabs, sexual abuse, calculated theft, slavery/human trafficking, murdering of children and animals. Secret factions may unite for prevention, education, exposé and social justice. Be safe. If you aren’t up to par, take time out. Let your Ninja 6th sense and stealth protect you.

Jupiter in its own sign Sagittarius! Is that running away or running to?! Do they take their teaching seriously or are they traveling nomads who get away with things, literally, because they are fancy free? They may be the head of the university, or home schooling their children. But blue skies and all kinds of weather call them. They have to be moving. They love different lands and people. Import/export businesses have their name on them, but somebody else has to do the paperwork! They are accused of being procrastinators, and maybe so, but to them it’s just doing something else that they like doing better at the time. Many don’t want to be tied down by home ownership or kids, even marriage. If you are lucky, you may get to join them on their travels. Having a school in a foreign land or two or three, combines that travel lust and sharing the knowledge. They are natural born Seers. They are potently aware of shifting perspectives, directions and future potentials. That’s why they seem so lucky! They are in the right place at the right time. They generally have marvelous health and live long and happy.

‘Learning is never cumulative, it is a movement of knowing which has no beginning and no end.’  Bruce Lee – double Sagittarius, Sun conjunct Ascendant + 4 planets stellium in Scorpio. See his phenomenal Chart

If your Jupiter is in these Scorpio or Sagittarius degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundant! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and marriages are quite possible.

Here’s the 2018 Outer Planet Sign Changes Timetable:

Apr 17 Chiron from Pisces to Aries
May 15 Uranus from Aries to Taurus
Sep  25 Chiron Retrograde from Aries back into Pisces
Nov  6  Uranus retrograde back into Aries
Nov  8  Jupiter from Scorpio into own sign Sagittarius!

Happy Birthdays, Sagittarians! Blessed be Forevermore.


Any of these outer planet factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologers for the whole picture! May it go well with you….

Long Night Cold Full SuperMoon!
Jupiter trine Neptune, Full Moon T Square, 4 Planet Sagittarius Stellium!

Sunday Dec 3 at 7:47 AM Pacific, 11 Gemini/Sagittarius 40! 

Sagittarius Long Night Cold Full Moon Goverla Ukraine

Moonrise over alpine peak Goverla – highest point of Ukraine! Unforgettable beauty worth the dangerous night-climbing in winter.

When the “Full Cold Moon” rises on Dec. 3, it will also be the first and last “Supermoon” of 2017! A Supermoon is a Full or New Moon at perigee (nearest approach to The Earth). This makes the moon appear up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual. If you are coastal, Surf’s UP!

This Full Moon is perfect to spread its wings illuminating the Jupiter trine Neptune of the day before! That trine is a blessed ‘dreams come true’ aspect that happens two more times during 2018, May 25 through Aug 19! This is the culmination of what has been the preview time for May-August. We have been setting our goals, finding the best ways to make it all happen! The Full Moon spans Gemini, the Word, to Sagittarius, the Pathfinder! Information and purpose. Jupiter is Sagittarius’s planet! AND, it all links by degrees! All four are at ELEVEN degrees!

Jupiter is in Scorpio, a heads up planet in a down deep sign! Scorpio has the deepest desires, founded from its roots in the Earth, in subterranean caverns with underground rivers! They are not afraid of danger, scuba divers in wild territory. Jupiter is like a periscope, making sure things topside are safe and clear for the undertaking. Jupiter rules longevity and Scorpio rules death. What a mix! But then, Scorpio is ruled by the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes! Jupiter carries that momentum forward. Wise attention to health, avoiding toxic behaviors, keeps us clean and in top shape!

Neptune in its own sign Pisces makes magic! Scorpios are survival experts and fast healing, great healers! In the world, Neptune is the Ocean and its shores. Out of this world it is like a ship far, far at sea. It has to do with the spiritual realm, that we become part of when we meditate. We can feel not just our Self, but that Self in others, universal being – we are one. We have insights to matters in our lives. When we are not sitting we may be sailing, or making extraordinary music, art, hypnotic dance. In business, Jupiter sees the amazing potential that Scorpio runs astutely financially. Far seeing Jupiter expands, the vision Neptune has and makes it a success!

The Moon in Gemini feeds our minds. It insightfully merges clusters of data. makes safe connections. Sun in Sagittarius is watching the progress and with its gift of perspective, plugs in the bits in perfect places that fuel the journey. Sun lights the way and takes them further than Moon ever realized could happen. This Full Moon is like opening the big book of life, full and wide, writing the chapters as it goes!

Venus leads the way of the four planets in Sagittarius, as Mercury has retrograded the day before, Dec 2 at the last degree of Sagittarius! Mercury is still in the 8 day station (turning point), focusing, concentrating, anchoring his ideas. This 18 day foursome, stellium, started Dec 1 and continues through Dec 19 when Saturn enters Capricorn! Mercury is going back to meet Saturn, makes the conjunction Dec 6. Since Mercury crossed this degree as he was going forward, it is a review for him. With Saturn he is making commitments, cementing certain agreements. Saturn charges him to report accurately, no embellishing. Mercury inspires Saturn to think more broadly, to encompass the entire territory, have a truly realistic plan for his future, likely bigger to build than previously expected, but worth the extra time and work.

Venus at 2 degrees stands alone. She is free to do a few escapes or escapades! She was just in Scorpio and has discovered some extra fun things to do! In Sagittarius, she can show the beauty of far lands and peoples. She can teach something unpalatable and people love it! She shows its intrinsic value and how to raise it to respect, to recognize a style that is delightfully different. That old stuff in the back of the garage takes on new meaning! Philosophical discussions are blessed. Everyone prospers!

It is true, Moon and Sun T Square Neptune! Squares can block energy, and can release energy as facing and dealing with the blocks  opens gateways. Sagittarius sees the Path ahead. Pisces can obscure the exact steps until it’s time, then miraculously the fog clears and we’re on! Delays or not knowing are not always ‘bad.’ Denial keeps us from making change. Know that you are safe, be in a safe place and you will be pleased with the steps you can take. They may be small at first as you test the waters. That’s perfect. You are you, do it your own way, but do note your personal progress. Moon in Gemini can overwhelm you with chatter, but then that blanket of input can be what was needed to make a difference. Maybe it acted as a droning, you ignore and relax, and all of a sudden a phrase catches your attention, and some things fall right into place! That information ahead keeps feeding the project as things develop!

It may be a long night cold Full Moon, but you have Sagittarius to keep you warm, and his planet Jupiter trine Neptune to keep you steady at the helm! May Lady Luck be with you now and always!

Galactic Center New Moon!
5 Planet Sagittarius Stellium! Stars Polaris & Betelgeuse!

Sunday December 17 at 10:30 PM Pacific, 26 Sagittarius 31!

Sagittarius Crescent Moon Kinuko Yamabe Craft

Kinuko Yamabe Craft is a Japanese-born American contemporary painter, illustrator and Fantasy artist. She is one of the most widely respected and well known fantasy artists in the United States today. See her art!

In the dark of the New Moon, expanded visions and wisdom anoint our Soul, especially this time!!! This one is conjunct the Galactic Center, the center of our Galaxy, 26 Sagittarius! The Galactic Center, GC, is a place of huge significance. It ties us with Souls or Beings beyond our wildest imaginings! We may dream or have insights, but more likely impressions that we don’t entirely understand yet feel are important, compelled by, point a direction. We are inclined to be more inclusive, to let go of the daily fraught, raise our sights higher. We see what surrounds us with greater comprehension.

Saturn conjuncts/conjuncted the GC 26th degree Nov 15 to 24, as it did 28, 29 years ago! Saturn in Sagittarius calls us to take charge of our future. Work it. Be present, accept the mission. Be respectful of all Paths. It started Feb 16 at 26 Sag 0, moved into 27 degrees and ‘stationed,’ stood still there – was direct/moving forward, then April 5 retrograded/turned back. It went back to 26/0 degrees May 25, right after the the second Saturn trine Uranus! That was three months that we were deeply infused. Now we see what needs doing, it’s time. Recent floods, fires and quakes have called for survival, generosity and recovery. I won’t say restoration, because it’s time to do better. We want to build a fresh future. Let go, move forward clean and clear.

Saturn is now at 29 degrees Sagittarius, completing his Sagittarius promises. This New Moon tunes us in exactly for one last boost before Saturn leaves Sag and enters his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, just before Winter Solstice! We mustn’t forget the long term goals and the recent successes they are built on. Brick by brick. We must keep the greater picture in mind, why we are fighting the good fight, forever expanding in a good way. Keep looking over that Rainbow!

Our 26 Sagittarius New Moon is opposite Polaris, the North Star, and Betelgeuse at 28 Gemini! Polaris is like a little Galactic Center of its own. It stands almost motionless in the sky, and all the stars of the Northern sky appear to rotate around it. It has been a ‘guiding light’ to sailors, caravans of old winding their way over the desert by night, and other navigators. The Chinese considered the Pole Star as “the great honorable Lord of the Heavens.” Elsbeth Ebertin said ‘The Pole Star serves as a guide and indicator. If it is conjunct with planets in the angles [ASC/MC], the native will have a good sense of discretion and is able to follow “his instinct”. He clearly recognizes his aims, and will pursue and achieve them.’

Betelgeuze, the main star of Orion, the great winter constellation of the north. According to the old master Ptolemy, Betelgeuze gives martial honor, preferment and wealth. It can indicate a superior athlete, being endowed with outstanding agility and speed of body. And, luck, success and everlasting fame are promised.

Being opposite the New Moon indicates a need to reach across the table and introduce yourself. There will be differences and integration through sharings. Offer your best.

Saturn and the Moon and Sun are part of a five planet Sagittarian stellium! They are all in a connected string starting with Mercury at 15 degrees. Venus is next at 21, then Moon/Sun 26 and Saturn at the final Sag degree 29!

15 degrees is at the mid of Sagittarius tipping the balance toward the completion side. However, Mercury is Retrograde, will go back two more degrees, to 13, to review unfinished ideas. So not quite there yet. Mercury conjuncted Venus the 15th, giving her his accum of ideas so far, for her to carry forward for him. Moon shared sweets with Venus at 10:34 AM Pacific, 12 hours earlier than the New Moon. Have breakfast with someone special that morning! She shared Mercury’s info with Moon. Moon in turn, shares with Father Sun who lights it all up! Mercury’s wee idea becomes important for all to see, so attend this sequence if your chart connects with these degrees. Quite hopeful! Mercury turns forward the 22nd but doesn’t catch up with Venus until Mar 4 at 26 Pisces, square the Galactic Center! They have then been through Sag, Cap, AQ and Pisces, getting a bit of perspective, but for the moment, Mar 4, things are stalled or need extra attention to push on through. Maybe something was left out. Go back to December 15th for the clue.

Venus figures prominently because she first squares Chiron, then trines Uranus in Aries!

The square with Chiron can be a temporary challenge with your love life, business or health. Eat well. Take time to talk things over. Pay attention to what needs doing. It may come and go quickly and show you a weak spot that needs strengthening. Do shore up that area so it doesn’t become a problem down the road.

Venus with Uranus may sweep you off your feet, so don’t forget to make notes about that Chiron item! Both are in fire signs, they have the spark! Fascination, inspiration, wisdom and crazy exhilaration! Since Uranus is retrograde, he is coming back to meet her! She so admires how quick he is on his feet, his dance moves are like blazing lightning! She is impressed by his instant intelligence and he ‘gets’ her! Her long vision is totally understood by him and he raises the ante! They make their exact aspect the afternoon and evening of Dec 20! It’s your Winter Solstice gift if it connects with your chart 24 Sagittarius/Aries! Fantastic and wicked great ideas! Could be a 3 day affair, but it will leave you breathless with memories!

Sagittarius wants to run with it, ride the horse into the wind, skate so fast your hair goes backward! Sag will go anywhere it can, chatting and consulting for the whole enchilada! Different cultures blend and everyone is thrilled to find such grand and gallant solutions! It’s so much fun checking out the possibilities. Your mind expands right in front of your eyes! Moon is no fool, in Sagittarius might surprise you with a charming funny story you can’t resist! Sun has a big heart, wants knowledge to bring people together, to achieve greater goals one couldn’t do alone. Moon is less shy, Sun feels sheltered by her loyalty and love. Under umbrellas in the courtyard, Moon opens the cafe featuring exotic cultural foods; Sun brings the customers!

Saturn at 29, the end of the sign, is mature, experienced. He looks at the strength in the structure. He reminds them to make timely changes – a cafe is only a metaphor for what you might actually do. You might write a story that centers around a family in a multicultural neighborhood and it gets published. Saturn looks reality right in the face and if you listen, he will tell you reasonably your chances for success. He will have sensible reasons for his appraisal. Some things could be adjusted, but if the whole idea is off, I would give it some serious thought and check out other possible options. Saturn can save you a ton of time. If he says go for it, ask him where the most work will be needed. Betcha he will be right!

The Jupiter trine Neptune ‘dreams come true’ aspect is over, but the ideas that came with it aren’t! You have the inspiration. Keep working your plan.

Mars stands unhindered, alone in Scorpio. Yes, Jupiter is there, but they are 9 degrees apart. Mars won’t catch up until Jan 6. For now he is on his own. Mars likes being on his own. Independent cuss, though in Scorpio he may be seeking a mate, a forever mate. Don’t be tricked, trapped, bought or sold, or seduced before your time. If you have good chart combinations, it could be the love of a lifetime. Mars wants to lead, fight for your rights, get you started on your own! In Scorpio he can show you the way to acquiring the funding you need, help you secure your financial footing. He may be inscrutable, or stand right in front of you until you see. You may grow to trust him with your life. But get a credit check and find out his relationship and business history. Common sense. If you feel doing that might threaten your relationship, ask yourself why.

As our last New Moon was in a Bowl Pattern, uncommon, so is this one! A Bowl pattern attracts and collects energy in the many ways its planets are in their signs, the circuits they make or don’t among themselves. The energy is contemplated, examined, sorted, healed, enhanced, energized, redistributed. It may be partially or all held for use by the recipient, or perhaps for safekeeping. When the time is right, all or part of it may be poured forth back into the Universe to hold a specific place in the Light Grid. It may be sent to be a receiver/transmitter. It may be called to in turn heal a weak spot in the valence. You can use this kind of energy sustenance to repair, as an upgrade replacement, or as a system connection of your own. A clean array can attract more amazing energy to mingle with and upgrade to further levels of understanding. No limits! That is especially true with the major magnetic sign of this bowl being Sagittarius! Hopeful, confident, abundant, leading the way!

Depending on time of day and where on earth this New Moon chart occurs, the ‘bowl’ may be over the top of the chart acting as a hood! Rather than collecting from above, it gathers rising energy forms from below or ones floating about with no particular destination. Some are keepers, some are transformed and put to a greater use, others yet are dropped to shift and circulate further until they return and are ready to fit the scenario of the ‘bowl.’ Or they just move on to where they do fit, or are forever wanderers. The keepers, the ones the bowl processes, then may be like a living shower of energy collected, potently merged, united in cause, dispersed into the mainstream to magnetize others.

So here we all stand, present and collected at the Galactic Center together! The Light of all the stars shines on us. Listen for all you are worth. Send in your two cents and be counted. We are one planet’s collective Spirit. There are things we don’t understand yet. Other things we truly know in our Souls.

Mercury Retrograde Sagittarius Sauk Mountain Switchbacks

Sauk Mountain Trail Switchbacks, Rockport Washington 1,100′ Elevation gain

This is the last Mercury Retrograde of 2017! The next one will be in March 2018 in Aries, another fire sign! Revisions will be spirited! Last Rx, Leo/Virgo, I touted as the most significant of 2017 due to the US Total Solar Eclipse during the Rx and all the New & Full Moon connections! This one is important because it hosts Saturn’s 29 year sign connection with the Galactic Center, and its change from Sagittarius into its own sign Capricorn! Mercury guides us across this threshold, stirring things up so we see the living process of Father Time’s sign change.

While Saturn is still in Sagittarius, it is conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER, 26 Sagittarius, Nov 15 to 23! The Mercury Rx cycles starts Nov 15, so for the first 8 days of the Rx cycle, it is a time of ‘huge infusion,’ the portal to and through the Galaxy and beyond is available! And, the Nov 18 Scorpio New Moon makes us a more sensitive receiver, deepens our perceptions. Dec 17 the Sun makes its annual conjunction with the GC, but this time its the Sagittarius New Moon, Moon and Sun, AT the GC! Since it is during Mercury retrograde, it performs some kind of a retrieval, a remembrance, revives something that must be updated, regathered and not left behind.

In those 8 days Saturn is at the GC, Mercury is 13 to 24 degrees Sagittarius. Mercury will recross those degrees twice more, retrograde Dec 10-22, then when forward Dec 22 to Jan 6, finishing the Mercury Rx cycle. Mercury will itself conjunct the GC 3 times – Nov 26/27, Rx Dec 8 and Jan 7/8, 2018. At the times Mercury is in the degrees it was at when Saturn was at the GC, and when Mercury conjuncts the GC, take special time to check in, be more alert to signs. Ask that the highest be done and that you be shown how to get there, whether it is personal or for the world. Blessed be.

Switchbacks, retrogrades, make it easy to get up the mountain, make it possible! This Rx is in Sagittarius, and Sagittarius would surely be going up as the ascending arrow, its sign symbol, indicates. You do need to be careful that you don’t kick rocks off the trail, as there are often others below you.

As you ascend, the Sagittarian view just keeps getting bigger, more expansive, inclusive. You get a picture of the layout of the land and where the people are. You make adjustments in your thinking and attention. Unless you have been on that trail before, it’s still a guess if the next rise is the top or a false top with more yet to go. At the top it can be exhilarating, even if it is plenty hot, or cold as all get out plus a dangerous icy wind and slippery! Sometimes it’s a languishing picnic, fill-your-eyes rest stop, pictures of all directions, poses of prowess! Other times it’s a quick snap, we made it, let’s get down outta here! But you did it!

Use retrogrades fully by being alert, open to the broader view, new opportunities. As with mountain hikes, there are new visions around the corner, greater options possible, because the other planets keep right on moving, while Mercury is refreshing the screen and thinking things through. One step leads to another. Things absolutely do change! They are supposed to.

Dates, Degrees & Signs

The three part cycle starts Nov 15 at 13 Sag. Mercury goes up to 29 Sag, the very end of Sag, and retrogrades Dec 2, back to 13. He then turns forward, direct, Dec 22, the day after Winter Solstice (Saturn newly in Capricorn as of Dec 19) and goes back to 29 Sag on Jan 10, 2018, crosses the threshold into Capricorn that very day, and continues on into the New Year.

The Mutable signs, Gemini, Virgo, Sag and Pisces will be challenged. Earth signs Taurus and Capricorn prefer things stable and steady, but they are not exempt. Other fire, Aries and Leo, and air signs, Libra and Aquarius, will enjoy the shifts and changes! Mercury will midpoint sextile connect with Libra and Aquarius acting as their go between, plugging in astounding ideas just as fast as they can take them in. Have a party with all your Libra, Sag and AQ friends!

If the retrograde connects with your chart, here are some good tips!

Prepare well for the retrograde. Get mechanical items serviced – with Sag, that especially means vehicles, travel conveyances and image devices – cameras, video, telescopes, cell phones. Get new apps well in advance, and learn to use them with ease. Be sure traveling companions have all their shots, including your pets. Have your schedule handy. Keep your goals in mind, though don’t be surprised if they suddenly change directions!

During the retrograde, keep irreplaceable valuables with you. No stowing with your luggage in the hold. No important papers tossed in the backseat because you are in a hurry. Keep your keys in mind, slow down and don’t lock them in the car! You could temporarily put them on a tether device around your neck – glasses too. Mercury Rx is famous for losing things, though sometimes something lost in the last Rx turns up in the current one! Don’t forget to immediately change your appt book the minute an adjustment is made in your timing. Call in advance to be certain you are scheduled and at the time you think the appt is. Scout about for paperwork needed at least the day before. Do get people to sign things that need to be signed, including yourself! Make follow up appts because we know automatically things will require further adjustments. It isn’t done until the 3rd phase is done Jan 10!

Take big promises with a grain of salt. Sagittarians believe in big and better, but due to no fault of their own, things change and the deal can’t be made after all. They didn’t lie, they just didn’t know. During Mercury Rx, give the benefit of the doubt.  However, if one falls through, an even better one can happen! One just clears the way or leads to the next!

Never be afraid of a retrograde! It stirs the pot. Even as cherished ideas go up in flames, especially in Sagittarius, another door opens. Again, something better has the space to happen. Gather yourself. Grab it with your teeth and shake it for the best to fall out! Don’t let go until it does! Plan to use every precious bit of information that comes your way. The computer goes down? Get a better one, upgrade, get one better suited to your needs. A vacation falls through? Choose a better time and something more potent than your previous choice. Really look at it. You and circumstances have changed since you made that first plan. The dog eats your script? What you write next is surprisingly so much better! You were devastated at first, but now actually glad that happened! Your life will get better. Give it reasonable time and be proactive. The outcome depends partly on YOU! Be there!

After the Retrograde! In the third phase, the direct part when the retrograde is finishing, tidy up. Take a look at what you are left with, polish it, integrate it well. Make further plans with what goes well with you. Follow up on the best ideas. Get connected with some good people going your way! Grab one or two or three experienced consultants in your field and invite those people traveling your way. Hear them all out and merge some of your and their ideas and plans. Not all of their particular options may be ones you use now, maybe later, but they get you thinking! It’s likely to turn out much better than you expected! Collaboration makes things multiply! Each of you can promote the main project from your special vantage points!

There are three important outer planet factors during this Retrograde cycle! That’s not common since outer planets move more slowly. Here’s the timetable:

Nov 15 to 23 Saturn at Galactic Center degree, Mercury is at 13 to 24 degrees Sag
Nov 15  Mercury Retrograde starts first phase
Nov 18  Scorpio New Moon

Jan  10  Three part cycle finishes, Mercury goes into Capricorn 9:09 PM Pacific
Jan  12  3rd Mercury conjunct Saturn, Capricorn
Jan  15  1st Jupiter sextile Pluto More on this soon….

RETROGRADE starts Dec 2 the same day as Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet, trines Neptune. It is considered a Dreams-come-true aspect, travel and Soul healing. A good time to consult the Oracle’s Oracle, yet with Mercury starting his journey, all will not come out as predicted! Mercury in Sagittarius can lead Scorpio on, both can be a bit of tricksters. Mercury by nature, ruling Virgo, is opposite Pisces. Mercury co-rules Gemini, square Pisces, and in Sagittarius square Pisces, reports may be difficult to confirm, and even if confirmed, are not solid indicators. And yet Jupiter trine Neptune is considered wondrous, capable of significant miracles and psychic! Go eyes open, trust your core.

To add to it, the Dec 3 Gemini/Sagittarius Full Moon follows the next day! Gemini Moon sees a thousand facets; Sun in Sagittarius tries to gather them to a focus. Moon is intuitional and she knows when things are not in divine order in communications. She can be protective of the information held close to her bosom though Sag tries to tease her to tell. Mercury has two signs, Gemini is one. So he now in Sagittarius opposite Gemini, is at his most extensive range, with the Sun, is also circling for clues. Another scenario might be Sag is a bit opinionated; Moon floods him with ideas and data that alter his point of view. Moon provides vital information; Sagittarius takes it with him for upleveling, pondering as he goes. Mercury observes the exchange, new chapters will be written!

Saturn changes the game by leaving Sagittarius and going into his own sign Capricorn December 19 3 days before the Retrograde ends! That’s during the 8 day Rx/Direct (forward) station when Mercury appears to ‘stand still’ in the sky. There is a holding tank of information, a focus, a concentration of thought, an anchoring of ideas. With Saturn in Cap a serious tone descends. More is expected. It’s not just fun and contemplation. Things need to get done, responsibilities taken, papers signed. Saturn builds strong, expects you to exceed your past. They will help you if they can. Winter Solstice adds the Sun into Capricorn the day before Mercury turns Direct (out of Rx). Mercury instantly senses the shift and knows he needs to backup his hopes with solid evidence if possible to carry on, cross the breach, be in sync with the tidal shift.

At first he may not seem to catch on or keep up because he is in Station, standing still, 4 days before and after the turn point. He’s absorbing, assimilating, focusing, anchoring the plans. At this sacred time of Winter Solstice, the longest Nights, Mercury’s ideas and thinking patterns will be deepened, fortified. No matter how much Saturn may want Mercury on board, the plans that have been made, after much consideration, are not to be abandoned. Mercury will be holding the Sag Light until Jan 10, when he crosses the line into Capricorn to join Saturn. See more about Saturn’s sign shift

The three part cycle finishes the same day Mercury joins Saturn in Capricorn Jan 10. Mercury conjuncts Saturn Jan 12, Jupiter sextiles Pluto Jan 15! When it’s done, it’s done! Mercury, the Communicator, now out of Sag and in Capricorn, can present his ideas to Saturn in the way Saturn can understand since his sign is Capricorn! It will be up front and personal Jan 12 when they are together. Jupiter sextile Pluto wants volumes of healing, both personal, as couples and business partners. Jupiter knows when he has a tough room, yet he is amazing at telling the funny story and making them laugh anyway. He also knows when trust is an issue. Now in Scorpio, Jupiter knows about Pluto only too well. And Pluto in Capricorn is rarely fooled or made to do anything he doesn’t want to. Mercury is intrigued by seeing Jupiter at work, and may offer Jupiter some data to help his presentation, request. Mercury may offer Pluto some quick but pivotal advice, and bingo, Pluto is on board and it’s a good deal!

Mercury repeats aspects to Saturn and Uranus….

Throughout the cycle, Mercury trines Uranus three times! Mercury is the thinking process; Uranus is considered to be higher mind, how to join many souls, worldwide networks to promote both rational and etheric thought. Mercury in Sagittarius expands principles of attention and expression to intrigue Souls to gather ’round! Already the process is started by coaching by example as thoughts are shared and upleveled, hope instilled, having a steady outlook. Uranus is the Light and Sound waves that carry group thought around the world, brings R/Evolution. It invents options like the Internet, and planes, and one day we will have teleportation. Let your mind shift freely. Tune in.

Mercury does conjunct Saturn three times. The first two are in Sagittarius, but the third, however, is in Capricorn two days after the Mercury Rx cycle is complete! While in Sag, Mercury consults with Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, then, because Saturn changes signs mid Rx, Mercury completes the conjunctions when Saturn is at his full power! First Mercury speculates in Sag, then after all is said and done, commits to the chosen Path in Capricorn. He works hard gathering data so choices will be informed, no time wasted. Mercury is not always serious, sometimes mischievous, but in Capricorn he focuses as it life depended on it, and sometimes it does! Blessed be.

Mercury aspecting Saturn and Uranus, triggers awareness of how precious our commitments are and how much we need freedom too. Saturn holds us together and stabilizes our communities, at times our very survival. Uranus invites innovation, change, evolution, sometimes on a large scale with far reaching effects! Networking, connection is a potent and necessary life force, sometimes uniting us internationally. Intentionally we can breathe together collectively, securing our survival in the future as well!

Sagittarius, this Mercury retrograde’s sign, is a student, a teacher, traveler of mind and body, has long term purpose in mind, great faith in the future. Confidence abounds, risks are taken and often succeed! They are super storytellers, often published!  Sagittarius will hold the compass and keep us on course. Even if they lose the compass, they were born with directional instinct. Trust it. When it all seems too much, they will tell stories of heroes and heroines and hope is restored! They speak of the achievement of our dreams, what that will look like. We are guided to make the best choices to get us there, step by step we go on. Walk the Path together.

Please, always remember these planetary combinations are what’s happening in the world. Check with your astrologer to see how they do, or don’t, activate your personal chart! May it go very well with you….

scorpio-neptune-premier-ship-oceanic-walt-disney

Premier Cruise Line was at one time the official cruise line of Walt Disney World! Premier sought classic liners in order to allow guests to “feel the regal elegance of the legendary era of ocean cruising.” Later they became known as the Big Red Boats!

Jupiter in Libra inconjunct Neptune offered alternatives, opened channels to unknown destinations, loosened the web!

Jupiter in SCORPIO TRINE Neptune is magical reform, a deep harmony of purpose, super dreams come true! They can be financial, relationships that deepen, cleansing healing long awaited, spiritual Gateways traveled. Could be the cruise of a lifetime!

This is the last aspect of 2017. It is also the first of three. There are two more that are close in degrees from the second one May 25 to the third one Sep 12, 2018. It is also the first of the 2018 sets of two Jupiter aspects. The second aspect is Jupiter sextile Pluto starting in January.

It happens that Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius starts this day! The first phase of the Rx cycle starts Nov 15, so all the day’s degrees preceding the Rx to the exact trine date Dec 2, will be crossed twice more! Things on your mind that lead up to the exact trine will be reconsidered. When Mercury goes direct/forward, those events will be finalized with well tested mature solutions! Mercury is in Sagittarius, Jupiter’s own sign, and in the neighboring sign following Scorpio. It will entice Jupiter to offer options of long term value, promises of future potential. Scorpio may at moments feel one-upped, but Jupiter instinctively goes for the best possible outcome and Scorpio is no fool. Scorpio will likely allow Jupiter to use some of his monies for the venture!

Mercury Rx in Sagittarius will square Pisces where Neptune of the Sea is at home. Neptune/Pisces, though a flexible planet/sign, may be a little harder to bring on board. First of all Neptune has his own mighty rhythms, has the vision of the Soul. A mere project proposed by a flashy dancer does not always impress him, yet he does see more about how it fits in the world about him, possibly and important piece, a stepping stone maybe. Be a good facilitator! Be persistent. He can at times be other worldly and it’s hard to get his attention. There are many layers to what he sees, a complexity beyond words, worlds that merge and diverge, flowing within each other! Line up your flow with the flow of his tides. Sync up. Show him how things link, really listen to his alternatives. It may be the biggest experience you have ever had! After all, Jupiter is trining, the best possible aspect, with Neptune right now! No neglect, get to it, don’t miss the window! Use this divine gateway! With Mercury Rx, you have three chances and it may take all three to get it done! This retrograde may be super valuable! See below

Jupiter in Scorpio may increase your finances exponentially especially if you use your intuition! That means choosing investors with excellent creds and using the best timing! Or, you may finding yourself spending more than you have in your entire life! And every penny may be worth it! Buying oceanfront property may be just the ticket! Could even be in another country. Invest in international concert tours! Make music!

If you go on that cruise, there may be profound experiences, insights about people, the condition of the planet. Exceptional relationships may be intense, change your life. Trust or scams, no denial. Sometimes we need to face our success and stand well for ourselves. You may find yourself deeply in love whether it’s good for you or not. Love is love and sex may be tantric, mysterious and magical! With Neptune it may have more to do with your Soul connection than the assessments of your accountant. If you go sharesies, invest to test the waters. As wonderful as things seem to be, prenups may be the right choice to start. Jupiter is a bit pollyanna at times, Neptune can be in denial.

It’s time to make some upward spirited career, life Path choices. The more in accord with your core you are, the better your health will be, the better your relationships. You will prosper in a good way, be a community member in good standing, perhaps being able to gift educational funds, people in frail conditions, helpful research. You may determine to counsel or coach others with their relationships, successfully work with people in addiction recovery, physical therapy or with hospice. Helping people with their finances is a wonderful way to get people through their lives with dignity. Working on a cruise line or guiding trips of all kinds opens people’s hearts planet wide, builds links through understanding and compassion. Ocean and water sports businesses are refreshing and exhilarating!

Research may be quite secretive but a substantial body of work could be done. Apply for grants, make proposals for your thesis, establish a location. Have your astrologer do some AstroLocality work for you, both for personal and professional purposes. Financial cycles, medical cures, learning matters, comparisons of countries and related topics could be good choices.

Go to school, go back to school! Learning how to learn, choosing something meaningful soothes our Soul, encourages us to do the greater good. It calls us to be more productive, be healed and heal others in whatever way we choose. It shows us how to keep focus and keep the goal in mind at all times.

Sign up for Religious or Spiritual Studies, go to a temple training, seek out sacred places, do a vision quest. Do take some time at the ashram or the seaside shrine. Do some tantric yoga, learn how to meditate. Go alone, go with friends, a group of like spirited Souls, choose a proven guide. Challenge yourself but be sensible too. Have your AstroLocality done, and let your astrologer check your personal timing.

Celebrate by swimming, snorkeling, exploring caves and big riversides, waterskiing, surfing the shores. Hang out and party with water loving friends. If you stay on land, consider a terrific motorcycle! Scorpio has an amazing ability to recover and great stamina; Jupiter has fast reflexes and generally good luck; Neptune/Pisces knows where to be when and with whom. Just be realistic about your ability and keep good company. Take good care of your precious self.

The next truly potent aspect is the April 12, 2022 Jupiter conjunct Neptune! These are the last major trine and conjunction aspects of Jupiter to Neptune in Pisces. Sometimes we don’t think how profound an aspect may be. It will be 12 years before Jupiter goes into Pisces again after the 2022 conjunction, but Neptune will go into Aries in 2025.  It will 2175 before Neptune goes into Pisces again and these same aspects will happen! Please be very present for these. They are an important part of our progress, a last chance of their kind.

Saturn Sagittarius Trine Uranus Aries Helicopter Rescue Biker

Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter dispatched to airlift trail bike rider from Mount Pikapene State Forest, New South Wales, Australia.

The first Saturn trine Uranus was Christmas Eve 2016, part of a set of 4 outer planet transits Dec 24 to 31! Saturn was at 20 Sagittarius. These 4 aspects have repeated twice more throughout 2017.

The second Saturn trine Uranus was the May 18 retrograde trine Saturn at 26 Sagittarius, the very degree of the GALACTIC CENTER, GC, the center of our great Milky Way Galaxy, the Sun of our Sun! It is considered to be a stunning source of energy, motivation, and aspiration, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Uranus the God of the Heavens, rules the stars, in other words, is our galactic planet! Saturn, the planet of earthly reality, made the channel clear for clean transmission and reception! Tuned us to accept our mission, the work of our Soul.

The finishing trine with Uranus is at 25 Sag 37, Nov 11, eleven eleven twenty seventeen! Again is it conjunct the GC! It is powerfully the first of the amazing continuous positive string of aspects late 2017 through Nov 1 2018! Complete it well; bring it to maturity! Set another piece in place for good start of many exciting new ventures!

Saturn and Uranus rule neighboring signs earthy conservative Capricorn, and far, far out electric air sign Aquarius! Short and tall! Saturn is the lawmaker, Aquarius the lawbreaker! Saturn says if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Aquarius takes the clock apart and puts it back together, figuring out a new way to make it better. Saturn, the builder scientist, is so steady, determined. Uranus is infinitely unpredictable, thinks out of the box, researches and invents! Saturn puts up the framing, Uranus installs the electrical system. Build a school! Maybe buy a charter plane business!

A trine is usually a harmonious link, so businessman Saturn and banker/bartender Uranus do find common ground – buy the bar or bank, right?! And they can be surprisingly great friends! Off to the patent office, then into production! Futurist Uranus, ahead of his times, chats it up with Saturn the scientist in farseeing Sagittarius. Together they get insight how to make things work for current everyday use. Saturn happily clicks right along.

This aspect is particularly significant after all the recent natural disasters – fires, floods, quakes. As Nov 2’s Saturn square Chiron has forced us to let go of old wounds, released us from old sacrifices and negligence, acting alone, new communities are being formed, timely new businesses with real bones are being born. Hard times have shown us what really matters, how to help and be helped. We are connecting with one another, really connecting, heart to heart. It is a perfect time to build with sustainability in mind, upgrading to new and better possibilities for sweeter reasons. It’s a time of re-creation. Saturn the Builder, Father Time, is in harmony with genius Uranus, the planet of chaos, change, community, R/Evolution. Saturn, a historical genius, now in Sagittarius becomes a practical Futurist with the background to make it so!

Saturn in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries brings a calming, a reasonable sense of responsibility, yet they are still spunky in fire signs! Sag and Aries love their independence, so Saturn ordains and protects the function of much needed fast getaways to restore the spirit. There is more leeway with working hours, less hovering to see things get done ‘properly,’ more creativity encouraged! Working with friends is super, same general goals, things get done quickly. Uranus in Aries does split second mid air research that saves time, points amazing directions, is invaluable in making this project stand out above others of the past! Flying consultants in, brainstorming, making new working friendships and alliances is just fun! The company party will be in good taste and spectacular with the computerized light show! Don’t forget to invite your Father’s friends and take lots of px!

Knowing how to establish chains of friendships for special projects assures achievements that are ‘whole,’ a contribution that brightens many lives. The right people working well together is a treasure!

Take it to the bank!

Virgo Shamanic Healer Traditional Smoking Ceremony Saturn Square Chiron

An Aboriginal man performs a traditional “smoking” ceremony as the Asian Cup trophy is carried to the Sydney Opera House for the official draw.  

Late September, this Saturn square was showing up, already in effect at the Sep 19 New Moon. The Nov 2 exact aspect is the day before the Taurus/Scorpio Frosty Full Moon Nov 3. It’s like Saturn hammers the forces into place, if he can get them in his grip. Then the Full Moon spreads the pages apart, Moon opposite Sun, to reveal the valuable inner nut, opens the Gateway!

Saturn square Chiron has run concurrently with the Jupiter set of four that started late October 2016. It is now the next to the last aspect of the entire set. The very last one is Saturn trine Uranus 11.11.17!

Saturn square Chiron blocks or breaks away. Saturn nails them shut for later consideration, or splits them apart to be reassembled with better materials for a finer fit. Small firewood burns faster. Smaller healing steps can be wise, more easily dealt with in difficult situations. Start where you can, adjust as you go.

The Magi astrologers consider this a sad aspect of loss in relationships, wounding, depression. Sometimes neither party is willing, or able, to make changes, rebuild. Too tired, weak, overburdened, survival priorities may take precedence. I have a realistic regard for this one and won’t recommend marriages at this time unless you have way above average compatibility, both of you have super progressions and otherwise fabulous transits, and your astrologer arranges the very best possible date and time for you. But good compatibility can be brought down by a wedding chart fraught with long term difficult aspects. Why pick aspects like this when you can wait and do so much better? Though the aspect is activating 24 Sag/Pisces 47, and that may not activate any factor in your charts, it still would be part of the wedding chartIt will have problems, and that chart is the one for the purpose of your union. If Karma comes calling, and you must do it, then study up on these aspects well. In some ways the tables can be turned; in others, you will do the dance as spelled out.

For some people, the square will actually activate their charts well. The aspect itself will present challenge, but you will deal with it comfortably. If it doesn’t aspect your chart at all, it’s just a go by, hardly noticed.

If it is in difficult conditions with your chart…. If Chiron is a/the wound, and Saturn slows down healing, it just isn’t fun. It can be your love life, your body, your work or business, school, attitude. For centuries we’ve largely ignored the wisdom of those among us who are still directly connected to ancestral ways of knowledge. If you haven’t paid serious attention before and some real work needs to be done, you may make a breakthrough and make a start in the right direction. Find a real teacher/healer, maybe an indigenous shamanic healer. You may get over the fear of making a commitment or taking on something bigger than usual. You might be called on to do it on your own as others may have troubles of their own. Give them any help you can. You may be frustrated with limits, but perhaps they are keeping you safe for the time being. Time may feel like it is standing still. It teaches poise and patience. Just stay steady, stay with it. Make what you’ve got the best it can be.

That said, here are some ideas how to use this square to full advantage. Buckle up. Saturn knows how to prioritize, condense its energy, waste no time, has super focus, puts the right people in the right places to get the job done! Yes! Just like a Surveyor, in Sagittarius, they can locate to the right place within a hairsbreadth, build with confidence! They have the wisdom to pick projects that make sense over time, adding up over the years, future benefits multiplied! Hard work pays off.

Chiron was immortal and suffered a wound that wouldn’t heal. Through that experience he became an adept healer and teacher. In Pisces, there is a wordless compassion, often giving lifelong service to causes to benefit humanity. Chiron is also considered to be an astute business planet. Health spas, hospitals, senior facilities, schools and all their associated functions. Working in these ways, as healers and teachers, express this energy well. Building facilities and housing, working in human resources, providing services to your community, are some of the ways Saturn and Chiron can combine their skills and intentions, work together for the greater good.

At the personal level, Saturn may need to learn when to get down on his knees, take a break, leave the work at the office. In Sagittarius the wild card is wanting to run away, procrastinate some. Maybe that’s good, maybe not. But take a look at it. Take care of things that make you want to run away. Either it’s part of life and you need to man up, or it’s time for a change. If you need it, get some support. If you need support in your relationship, get it sooner than later. Save time down the road and don’t let things get beyond fixing. Be proud of your accomplishments and use that as a springboard to mentoring and teaching. Chiron in Pisces may be challenged by the ‘wounds’ of confusion or addictions, fear and escape. Do your best to keep stress lower, avoid trigger situations, be with knowing and supportive people, go to extra meetings if you need to. Have your responses ready to anticipated difficult questions. Leave stressful situations if you need to. Eat well, get a little exercise, and plenty of rest. Healer heal thyself. It’s ok to be exactly who you are, exactly where you are at. Blessed be.

This aspect is particularly significant after all the recent natural disasters – fires, floods, quakes. Saturn square Chiron has forced us to let go of old wounds, released us from old sacrifices and negligence, acting alone. New communities are being formed, timely new businesses with real bones are being born. Hard times have shown us what really matters, how to help and be helped. We are connecting with one another, really connecting, heart to heart. The Nov 11 Saturn trine Uranus has been traveling concurrently with Saturn square Chiron. It is a perfect time to build with sustainability in mind, upgrading to new and better possibilities for sweeter reasons. It’s a time of re-creation. Saturn the Builder, Father Time, is in harmony, trine, with genius Uranus, the planet of chaos, change, community, R/Evolution. Saturn, a historical genius, now in Sagittarius becomes a practical Futurist with the background to make it so!   

If you are well and safe, do some special volunteer work. Get on the road and give some tenderness to others in need. Share your expertise. Serve dinners, scope out the soup line for a mentoree! See how your company can serve the community with its profits. Make those tax deductible donations! What goes around comes around. Plant your seeds well.

Shortly after our Nov 2 Saturn square Chiron, Nov 11 the entire 2016-17 set finishes with Saturn trine Uranus! This aspect starts a series of only positive aspects through Nov 1, 2018!!!! That’s a go ahead!
