Scorpio 2021-22 Celestial HighLights, Timeline, Overview!

Scorpio. There have always been Masks

Scorpio 2021 2019 Venice Italy Carnival mask Purple Elegant

This is a fine 2019 Venice Italy Carnival mask. Brazil has its Rio de Janeiro Carnival. The US has the New Orleans Mardi Gras.

There have always been masks, and the meaningfulness they reveal. Scorpio is the sign of masks, hidden identities, secrets and mysteries, the great mysteries of life and death. It’s subjects are often private – you with your therapist, your lover(s), your monies, your health matters, death. Shamans need to shield the patient, show him the face that heals. Our face is our constant mask. Its stresses, its magical revelatory expressions. A Scorpio’s complete lack of expression, indicates when you guessed right, whether your Scorpio is protecting someone or something, may be afraid or they simply don’t want to be pestered, are playing poker, LOL! There are times to just leave them respectfully and advisably alone. Scorpios hate showing weakness. It’s in our genes from long ago when a slight movement, a twitch, could have meant the price of our life.

Survival! Humans with dirty faces were first. The dirt camouflage was their mask. They were hunters blending in so not to be scented or seen and eaten by larger predators. Scorpios can be just about invisible with their ninja ways – silent, perfectly still, gliding in perfect harmony with their surroundings through the night. Night is their natural element. You will often see them wearing black and a dark maroon.

The Natural World  Male animals, insects, birds brighten in breeding season, a ‘mask’ of attraction. Face painting and masks give an air of mystery and speak to the inner Soul of the wearer, his/her secret wantings, alter ego, what’s on his mind. The dancer’s adornments highlight his prowess and skills as a hunter. 

Identity  Tribes formed distinguished by their face markings, and within each tribe face markings indicated the nature of the event – coming of age, baby births, marriage, battle, death. How we need to be treated is indicated by our shamanic covers, that show our purpose to our brethren. Our markings show you the gifts we have to share.

Celebration  In old time, ancient days, Pagan earth seasons were celebrated with wreaths, eye coverings, branches cleverly bound for dancing. They prayed for the Sun to return, for seeds to grow, fertility, in thanks for crops, safety for loved ones, to ward off evil. Knowing the earthly seasons in your area are critical to food production.

Every continent has its history of masks!

AfterLife  Egyptians had masks, headpieces and body markings, tattoos. ‘Funerary masks were frequently used to cover the face of the deceased. Generally their purpose was to represent the features of the deceased, both to honour them and to establish a relationship through the mask with the spirit world. Sometimes they were used to force the spirit of the newly dead to depart for the spirit world. Masks were also made to protect the deceased by frightening away malevolent spirits.’ Though worn by the dead, they signified the future of the Soul. The prized gold mask of Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun is an incredible example – not just a mask, but art.  

Chinese Masks  The origin of Chinese masks is in shamanic rituals of the old. They were used for exorcisms and during the funeral rituals. Masks developed during the time and entered other parts of life and culture and today they have many uses from births to funerals. They are used in dance performances, during celebrations, there are masks for newborns, masks made for protection against evil and theatrical masks. During ceremonies that are held as welcome celebrations of gods and spirits, groups of people wear “Sorcerer’s masks”. These masks are also used in rituals that are held as prayers for better tomorrow and during funerary rites to help a soul rest peacefully. These masks originate from totemic worshiping of Yunnan and Guizhou. Chinese New Year many masks are worn but the most famous and important of them is mask of the dragon,  symbol of fortune and prosperity.
Scorpio South American Tribal Ceremonial Animal Mask
South America  Many masks are worn by the many tribes for all occasions. They have special masks depicting animals, their relationships with the animals they live so closely with and depend on. 

The mask at left is ‘some kind of wild animal indigenous to southern Colombia or Venezuela (maybe an owl monkey or skunk). The particular Amazon Indian tribe who dance this style of mask for religious purposes are called the Piaroa-Huarime. It is made of a fiber frame covered with bark cloth and then white clay and black-stained bee’s wax. Masks like this are made for tribal ceremonies and [today] for sale to tourists.’ The owner says it was a hat/mask.

Compare this humble mask with the exquisite Venice Carnival glitz and glamor above! 

Australia  Aboriginal magical shamanic masks were their earliest. 

European  Royalty enjoyed masquerades! Centuries later Europeans wore elaborate costumes, detailed masks and hair pieces, painted their faces white! Elaborate wigs were worn by lawyers and judges.

Today  Face Makeup is a most acceptable face marking, ‘mask.’ We still use it like the animals to attract mates, disguise ourselves, indicate a better future like the Egyptians! A woman can be mysterious without her makeup, may not be recognized by people she knows well. A famous woman can be practically incognito! With a change in hair color, style and demeanor, she has an identity shift!

Medical  Doctors and Nurses have worn masks during time with patients since we came to know of the tiny dangerous predators we can’t even see! The very latest is wearing stylish pandemic masks. Some are enjoying their pandemic Halloween masks as we speak! 

Halloween, Scorpio’s holiday!  Not only do we have Halloween pandemic masks, but Halloween, celebrated annually on October 31, is one of the world’s oldest holidays, could be called World Mask Day, LOL! It’s derived from ancient festivals and religious rituals, still widely celebrated today in a number of countries around the globe! The spiritual guides say the ‘veils’ are thin, we have access to the spirits of the dead. Mexico celebrates it as the Day of the Dead. We give thanks and celebrate for them in our lives, ask their advices and encouragement, pray their afterlife is well.

With deep Gratitude and Generous Blessings to you and your Ancestors.

Scorpio Overview, Your Year to Come…

Scorpio Sadie Marquardt Belly Dancer Solo Drum Mumbai 2019

She’s Got Real Talent, is a known name in 40 countries across the globe! See her in action! The queen of drum solo,  Wisconsin’s Sadie Marquardt performing at the Bellydance gala showcase organised by Payal’s Dance Academy, Mumbai, November 2019. The comments are insightful and inspiring ~ Sadie is an Oct 30, 1977 Scorpio born in Sheboygan WI.

Maybe you will travel to exotic places, take up belly dancing! Angola, Morocco, Queensland, Korea, Syria, Norway, the Transvaal, Bavaria, Antigua, Barbuda, Cambodia, Dominica, Latvia, Lebanon, Micronesia, Panama, Turkey, Turkmenistan, and Zambia are all Scorpio countries! Cities are Cincinnati, Liverpool, Newcastle, Washington DC, Vienna, Baltimore, and New Orleans (Mardi Gras and masks!). If you can’t travel there, connect online, go to the local group meeting of immigrants from one of those places, support people in need in those areas. Experience another part of planetary culture.

Scorpio and Capricorn, compared to most signs, take devilry and hardship in stride. They are used to facing their demons squarely. Scorpio doesn’t even blink at times. Both can hold a straight face, good poker players. Capricorn often goes with strategy while Scorpio is watching both the front and back doors at once. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, has been in Capricorn many years now, to go into Aquarius March 23, 2023. Scorpio and Capricorn have been living this combination through Pluto. Pluto has been looking for the darkest failures within us, at times suffering in his self imposed search, but he knows how vital it is to clear the Path so others can proceed. It hasn’t been easy and he has paid a price. Few could walk this Path, but the children born in that time, and their parents, understand. It takes a strong Soul, a Kokopelli that can dance with fire and Death, and laugh like crazy the whole time! 

In these pandemic years, Pluto ended many Capricorn careers, lives of elders. Pluto has brought a wave of cross party caring since the illness takes no side. Pluto/Scorpio’s shamanic healing has been called on for multitudes of people in all kinds of status, poverty to wealth, including depression due to fear and losses, from drought, fire, flood and the virus, loss of connections with friends. We have been finding new ways to connect and we are being more ‘real’ with each other, speaking more plainly, more from the heart. So many kindnesses are being given, shared with people who might not have even spoken with each other before. We are living in challenging, provocative and profound times. Live deep, stand tall, love well.  

Many 2020 and 2022 charts are Bowls, rare Bundles, and Buckets and seesaws! They are a concentrated force! The Feb 11 2021 SIX planet air sign Aquarius New Moon stellium Bundle Chart was a super example! All the planets were in a potent 113 degrees, less than a third of the wheel! See more about Bowls and Bundles If a singular planet or a pair or cluster of very close planets venture beyond these formations, a Bucket Chart is formed, emphasis on these ‘handle’ planets. If several planets loosely spaced move opposite the base group, a Seesaw Chart is formed, planetary oppositions common, balance sought. In these times when the slow moving outer planets are closely together, the base group is steady. The Bundles and Bowls alternate with the Buckets and Seesaws as ‘inner’ planets, Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus, sometimes Mars, proceed on their own out of the base group during the year. In her 27 day cycle, Moon jumps out ahead every month. Sun is on the other side 5 to 6 months of the year.

2021 has been and still is a super special AQUARIAN TIME! The February 11 SIX planets stellium Aquarian New Moon may have inaugurated a 2nd wave of the ‘Dawning of the Age of Aquarius!’ 59 Years ago in Feb 1962, the New Moon Eclipse chart had seven Aquarian planets and lasted longer. Saturn and Jupiter are in Aquarius, made the Great Conjunction Solstice Dec 21 2020! 2015 to 2024 Uranus, the planet of Aquarius, has been and is the lead outer planet. 2021 has had numerous outer planet aspects in Aquarius and ones formed to Aquarius’s planet Uranus, plus, Jupiter sextiles the Galactic Center three times, last on Dec 12! These prepare us for Pluto entering Aquarius March 2023, Pluto on a 248 year cycle! 

Mind you, the Ages are long, roughly every 2,150 years. Even 100 years would be a reasonable time frame for a transition from one to another. I think we could easily include 1962 and 2020/21 events and Pluto’s sign change into Aquarius in 2023 as part of the process. Pluto takes 248 years to circuit the zodiac. FYI the ages are reversed through the signs due to the Precession of Equinoxes. The previous age was Pisces, so we are now backing into the last degrees of Aquarius.

Going back to recent planetary action, Saturn and Jupiter made the leap for freedom, went into Aquarius Dec 16 and 19, made the GREAT CONJUNCTION Winter Solstice Dec 21, 2020! As one journey ends another begins. Pluto is in its final years of being in Capricorn. Pluto holds the power of life and death, represents the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes. In our lives that can be represented by poverty, bankruptcy, turned to wealth and powerful relationships. Capricorn is the mountain goat that rises to the heights, has staying power in extreme conditions, oversees, makes the laws, is the most efficient of all the signs, a survivor due to his own talents.

To make this Capricorn facet more potent, Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, and Jupiter were with Pluto as his support team! The difficult part was the Jan 12 2020 Saturn conjunct Pluto that probably brought the Virus, and Jupiter, a traveler, that had a role in transmitting it from China to other places. Yet, Pluto will continue to make impressive progress these last years even though Saturn and Jupiter have left him, now are in Aquarius. He may do even better because they have changed signs, leading him, wanting collaboration with the people to cure and heal, prevent more illness – and not just the virus, but working other matters as well, climate, politics. Since Pluto will be going into Aquarius March 2023, their work now is critical, paving the way for him. 

Following the Jupiter in Pisces preview from May 13 to July 28, 2021 Jupiter back in Aquarius continues to bring exceptional opportunities, especially for Aquarians through Dec 28! The sign lucky Jupiter is in, is the sign that succeeds and prospers! Saturn’s previous entry into Aquarius virtually shut down the airlines; Jupiter has revived them given certain conditions! Airlines, electronics, communications, organizations for sustainable change will flourish at new levels. Many patents will be filed, robotics, flying cars included. Jupiter in Aquarius! 

Adventurous Jupiter loves unstable ground, relishes making all the quick clever adjustments! Both Jupiter and Aquarius live for freedom! Since Saturn previewed Aquarius Mar 21 to July 1 2020, he is experienced and can handle the boisterous Jupiter Aquarius frolicking. He already knows there are lucky genius ideas afoot sometimes disguised as if there are no cares in the world! He sees it is that very freedom that makes them possible! He is able to tap the connections, make astute changes quickly, grab them while they are available ~ any moment Jupiter could run off to anywhere! The changes can enhance his business immeasurably! Jupiter’s current sign is where the good fortune is! Be ready to shift certain investments, adjust projects to include new, additional goals, especially those oriented to humanistic and planetary wellbeing. Aquarius will be delighted because as a researcher/thinker he doesn’t always get out to play, and Jupiter plays big. Jupiter even ups the amps on Aquarius’s own far thinking, and that is a rare thing to happen! Isn’t life grand?! Saturn may find himself on safari with Jupiter, or gone on the wind taking the computers to the surf zone when the surf’s up, whichever continent that may be on! Working from ‘home’ takes on new meaning! Really! Can be done!

Jupiter in Aquarius is like lightning! Things happen quickly. This is one of those periods when time itself seems speeded up! Jupiter in AQ knows the importance of immediate networking planet wide and how short a year’s window can be. Saturn has already been laying the groundwork. The possible collaboration of this team can have outstanding results much sooner than expected. 

Jupiter sped through Aquarius in record time, entered PISCES May 13 2021! It gave us a very brief preview, retrograded at 2 Pisces June 20! Magic happens! Jupiter travels the world, while Pisces travels the Spirit! Jupiter is a fiery planet so it may take a little getting used to Neptune’s Pisces damp waters. Yet, Jupiter loves speed sports, surfing, sailing, jet skiing, anywhere, the bigger the waves the better! Just be careful of tsunamis and floods! Jupiter philosophizes, tries to be just, to plan the best big future. Pisces talks with God, is psychic to the furthest realms, compassion his ruler. Jupiter may be harshly opinionated and Pisces can be an unable lost addict. Jupiter can be unkind; Pisces can be in denial, beyond caring. The other side of Jupiter is generous, can give hope, teach others to have faith beyond measure. He can help Pisces face the truth, Pisces knows he is lovingly regarded no matter what. Against the odds, recovery can happen. This can be one person in his own struggle or you working your piece for the world. Pisces gives Jupiter a dream, a vision of what can be, how miraculous recovery can be, what enormous strength and courage it takes. Even Jupiter is humbled…and grateful.

As Jupiter in Aquarius is super lucky for Aquarians, it is out of this world in Pisces for Pisceans! Jupiter cheers them up, expands their already magical dimensions, gives them further faith and awareness, heals their spirits from addictions and fears. Major tours are possible and successful dreams come true! It’s time to push the river a bit while the Gateway is open!

Jupiter returns to Aquarius July 28 until Dec 28 when he re-enters Pisces to stay. The Aquarian and Piscean talents will be commingled! The Path between them becomes a usable channel. Hopefully groups of crusaders will learn how to work together in current times, accomplish great deeds. Knowledge for all through the internet will keep us immediately informed, focused on task, adjusting priorities quickly! Jupiter traverses only part of one more sign, ARIES, the first sign of the zodiac! When Pluto enters Aquarius Jupiter will be at 17° Aries in a FIVE planet Aries stellium! Aries is the Action sign! That’s what I call a new beginning! 

Starting with the sign changes, in 2021 there are 13 aspects formed in Aquarius and Aquarius’s planet Uranus will be aspected 5 times! The first 4 of those 5 will be challenges, finding the existing weaknesses/blockages, remedying what needs adjusting, getting a flow going. The last one will be a positive aspect, an exciting finale of all those aspects, Feb 17, 2022 when Jupiter in Pisces sextiles Uranus, the AQ planet! 2021 alone will host 16 Aquarian type aspects! Then we wait, let things mingle, brew, progress, prepare, until Pluto makes that stupendous sign change into Aquarius Mar 23, 2023! We need Aquarius to be strong, in working order, integrated and grounded among ourselves, in our communities, internationally. 

We need to strengthen our Aquarian young people, our future leaders, and all Aquarians! Pluto is tough on the sign it is in and at the same time empowers them! Growing pains take strength. Take time to listen, cheer them on. Admire their broad scope, how they get teams going, their care for humanity and our planet, their inventions and science. Help them know how to carry on even when they are not appreciated or understood. They are so intelligent, ahead of their time, that not everyone will understand their work, yet the work needs doing.

The preparation for Pluto entering Aquarius will take steady and dedicated work, staying focused. Everything about how groups and friendships work, the importance and techniques of research, how change is brought about successfully, are the goals. The foundation needs to be set. It will be explored, tested and trialed by Saturn and Jupiter being in Aquarius. 

Pluto in Aquarius will bring a new time. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and Pluto/Aquarius are not exactly ‘compatible.’ Pluto has a ton of charisma, yet is as much private as Aquarius can’t help but bring attention by his simple presence. AQ is exotic, super intelligent, often revels in neon colors, odd/unique looks and attire, has electric static. He can get attention for being THE archetypal loner, or the brilliant head of a world humanitarian organization. Pluto is going to have some adjusting to do. He may be concerned for loss of privacy, be a bit jealous too. At the very worst, there could be power struggles for world rule, including genocide. Or they will do fundraising like never seen before! Pluto may gather the world’s top wealthy humanitarians and make governments of countries look small in comparison. Since these groups will have no governmental constraints, they may bring the world together when governments couldn’t. By comparison, the financially unsupported United Nations may become passé, or it’s possible its structure already in place may be revitalized! Comprehensive large scale inventor/researcher work could do very well to sustain and amplify their efforts. See more

Pluto will be in Aquarius 21 years, until January 2044! All the upcoming Aquarian flavored aspects will give us a head start. We’ll do Pluto in Aquarius better! Pluto was last in Aquarius 248 years ago, 1777 to 1799, a 22 year period of worldwide uproar and change – American revolution, the French revolution, the Industrial revolution in England. And it won’t be any different this time! Guarantee! So get your friends and alliances/networks in working order, stand up, get used to acting progressively, and be ready to roll! Some will mightily resist; others will persist with new ideas. Change will beget change. Take a peek at what Patrick Watson has to say on Pluto per sign historically. Check out what Lynn Hayes has to say about what Dylan Love has to say on transhumanism

Since that last 248 years ago we now have bombs, climate change, electronic communication, robotics, and a helluva a lot more people on the planet. Water and weather wars are possible. Actually, water wars are already starting – pollution prevention, Detroit, Standing Rock. We need to reassess our mandates for leadership – age and both physical and mental health. There are going to be some bumps. Some say, after the kinks are worked out, there will be a ‘Golden Age!’ Make it so. …or would that be really boring, LOL?! Evolution never quits.

Young people born around 2003 will be about 20 in March 2023 and from 20 until they are 41, will live this period. Their lives will be about this world changing time. Help them now. Prepare them to be strong and steady leaders then. Strengthen everything Aquarius in your life.

2021 Jupiter and Saturn activate Chiron and Uranus. 

Jupiter initiated connections with Chiron and Uranus. They were just once each, Jan 11 Jupiter in AQ sextile Chiron, Jan 17 square AQ’s planet Uranus. Jupiter is first considering purpose, plans, perspective. Saturn carries these planetary connections to Chiron and Uranus throughout 2021. Feb 9 Saturn in AQ started the sextile Chiron in Aries series, then Feb 17 squared AQ’s planet Uranus in Taurus the first time! Saturn will make these aspects three times each. If Jupiter hit the nail on the head, Saturn will anchor it to build on further. Chiron the healer/teacher in Aries, the Leader, is called on first to guide the way. Then Uranus is challenged. Friendships and alliances will shift due to new needs. It will be a time of weeding the weak, not fully capable or dedicated. At first there may be a seeming standstill as decisions are made, but the situation is brewing just the same. Initially there can be some false starts, mistakes, trial and error needed in this new territory, but things will get sorted out. We’re working with new materials, new energies, new parameters with the virus, new people, new locations, and everyone is adjusting. Saturn makes the last square to Uranus Dec 23, 2021.

 The most exciting aspect of 2021 is Jupiter sextile the Galactic Center three times! Earth Day April 22, Aug 20 and Dec 12 – Twelve Twelve! Jupiter will consult with the gods and goddesses of the heavens! The GC is the center of our Galaxy, the Milky Way. Jupiter, the far traveler, has no problem with such a journey, especially while in Aquarius, the very sign of the heavens, stars and flight! Jupiter is associated with Sagittarius, the home of the GC! Perfect combination, and how apropos to the Aquarian emphasis at this time! Jupiter will be our emissary, a generally broad minded planet with a huge perspective, a gift to discover possibilities of the future! The GC will not fail to transmit, infuse, present magnificent infinite consciousness stirring insights and instruction. We have three chances to take it in, grow with it. The Galactic Center is at 27 Sagittarius 09. If you have factors in your chart that match up within 5 degrees of that 27th degree, you will be called. Unlike with fixed stars, only 1 degree usually allowed, the Galactic Center is HUGE! If you are involved with meditation, circles, consciousness raising groups, if ever there was a time to tune in, it is NOW!

Paul O. Hewit writes: “it is probably the second strongest spot in any astrology chart, following the Sun. It is a stunning source of energy, motivation, and aspiration. The Galactic Center is the Sun of our Sun. It is the source of most of the gravitational energy present in our galaxy, and probably the source of most of the energy in any chart, transformed through our own Sun.” [Some say the GC IS the strongest factor in our charts!] It moves only a degree every 72 years, so you can easily get the degree it was when you were born. Have your astrologer calculate its exact position for you.
 
Planetary Aspect Portals Crater Lake Circular Rainbow
 
Portals are all around us. Some are temporary, some are always there. Some are annual like the August 8 Lion’s Gate. No two are alike, take us different places. Some are one way, others are two way but perhaps only at certain intervals – you have to be there or… Some lifetimes there are none, others have several passages. And there are the portals into and out of life.

 

2022’s Three Aspects, planetary portals, the only 2022 Aspects and they only happen once each!

All three of 2022’s aspects are done by May 3, in just over 4 months! All will be formed while Jupiter is in Pisces. The rest of the year will be putting our discoveries into practice, improving, holding and maintaining good ground gained. Jupiter in Pisces and Aries will show us the endings and dreams of Pisces as the last sign of the Zodiac, and the beginnings Aries will work for. It will be good to rest and relax, then stretch our physical and spiritual muscles and take action! 

Feb 17 Jupiter in Pisces sextile Uranus in Taurus Once

This is the last of the Aquarius/Uranus aspects that prevailed from Dec 2020, throughout 2021! Time for celebration and pledges to the future!

Two fast planets in differently tempoed signs Pisces and Taurus. Jupiter loves races and often has the long legs to win! Uranus is the genius with the greased lightning mind! Pisces has an adjustable speed potential, like a fast swimmer, the speedboat or yacht race, but is also the meditator like the Buddha that sat by the road for years…enjoys the silence at the ashram, or the roar of a rock concert! Lots of dimensional ability. Taurus has no intention of rushing about. He has his own steady pace, enjoys sitting peaceably. He’s not lured into undignified behavior.

Jupiter and Uranus’s works are cut out for them. They will speed up the others. They also learn that sitters and plodders are getting quite a bit done with a lot less external energy being shown. They just do it. Pisces finds the shortest route and uses psychic ability to do it. Smooth. Taurus is sensible and doesn’t worry. He sits with it and the plan forms with his patience. It’s uncanny. They both come up with solutions that are off the books. They think for themselves. At times the fast planets lose themselves in the fray, burnout, and have to stop, come to their senses, recenter, restart where it all went awry. Sometimes needs require a faster tempo. At those times let the speedy planets guide you. They do have our well being in mind and often make ‘accidental’ discoveries! Pass the baton back and forth!

 April 12 166 Year Event! Jupiter conjunct Neptune in his own sign Pisces Once! The Promise of 2022! 

Jupiter Conjunct Neptune reads the same as Jupiter in Pisces only more so! Pisces is Neptune’s sign and Neptune is currently IN Pisces, his own sign! Jupiter right there with Neptune most certainly ups the amps very specifically! Jupiter with Neptune comes by only every 13 years, but when Neptune is potently in Pisces, Neptune’s own sign, only every 166 years! The last time Jupiter was with Neptune in Pisces was May 17 1856! Freud, George Bernard Shaw, Tesla and Woodrow Wilson, all Chinese year of the Dragon, were born in 1856.

This is the big event while Jupiter is in Pisces and of 2022! In fact, this is a rather special conjunction. Robert P. Blaschke says ‘2009 has also brought the alignment of Jupiter and Neptune in the sign of Aquarius. [2022 it’s in Pisces, the next sign.] Conjunctions of these two planets take place at 13-year intervals and every thirteenth conjunction recurs at nearly the same Zodiacal position. Neptune’s sidereal cycle averages 165 years and the Jupiter-Neptune conjunctions divide the Neptune cycle into 13 sub-periods (13 x 13 = 169).’ 

Blaschke further writes, ‘As Neptune moves from one sign to the next, eleven out of twelve times it meets Jupiter only once while transiting a sign. Dane Rudhyar and Alexander Ruperti both wrote that the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction is the high-point of Neptune’s stay in any given sign.See more about what Blaschke writes

Neptune, Pisces, work with spiritual matters, soul saving, dire conditions of suffering. It might be symbolically saving children in sweat shops, cruel conditions for inmates or mental patients, needed health reforms. Jupiter is the ethical planet that wants justice and has no fear of legal necessities, may be the Judge. Knowing this in advance gives us all a heads up that we are coming to a prime time to work in behalf of merciful repairs. Take courage. If you can’t do it yourself, find and fund a proven champion to work in your behalf. Please.  

Alexander Ruperti says ‘The number 13 refers to the Christ principle and as such is the symbol of the power to overcome death and limitations on all planes … Therefore, in essence, the Jupiter-Neptune cycle gives mankind a basic rhythm of and describes its urge toward transcendence.’ 13 is considered by some to represent a Gateway of the Soul. See more about this 166 year event!

In our daily affairs, Jupiter may exaggerate with no hope for reason, LOL! Pisces is perfectly happy with this, his magical side is cheering him on, it’s an exciting yarn! Pisces has dreams and Jupiter sees no reason why they can’t come true! The two of them can be utterly mischievous together! Jupiter can sometimes get all ethical and abhors addictions that disable. At first he may make things worse with his judgments, or he looks for ways to help his mates stand clean again, to be strong for their futures, to make the world a better place. Your intuition may surge to overwhelming dimensions, you have never had visions like this before! Thank goodness the conjunction is between the Sun and Saturn in good aspect. Sun Lights the way and Saturn will help anchor the events and build what’s needed.   

Make special plans to be somewhere significant to you at that time of the Promise of 2022!

May 3 Jupiter in Pisces sextile Pluto in Capricorn Once

The one with the answers walks among us. Some are invisible, some seem ordinary, others really are simply easily sneaky. This can be a super wealth aspect, it just comes upon us though Pisces doesn’t always care about money at all. It can be a cure for old age ailments. Just do what you love and profound healings occur or you simply self equalize your system by forgetting you were ill! Time for dreams to become true through laws ala the Right of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. An obscure place or peoples, maybe an indigenous group, become especially important. An extinct animal may reappear or come from frozen wastelands. Maybe you will find the work of your soul! There are many extreme, extremely valuable possibilities that could come with this combination. Pay attention; look below the surface… Be careful not to put your hands or feet where you can’t see… Being lost may be the invitation to a new life. Get the keys to the locks and cross the threshold…or just bully through! They really won’t be surprised to receive you, LOL! The Threshold, Portal, is a sacred place. Don’t miss it.

2022 Sign Changes

The only planet changing signs is Jupiter. He previewed Pisces briefly from May 13 to July 28 2021. He returns to Pisces December 28, 2021. In 2022 Jupiter speeds completely through Pisces into Aries in only 5 months, on May 10, after his sextile with Pluto, the last 2022 outer planet to planet aspect! Late 2022 Jupiter retrogrades back into Pisces Oct 27 to Dec 20, a last chance affair, then its onward in Aries, the sign of new beginnings, no going back! The next day is Winter Solstice, the belly of winter. From there are the seeds of new beginnings, the ‘return of the Light!’ See more Jupiter in Pisces

It’s one thing to make your vows in Pisces, another to take action in Aries! Pisces is what you believe in. Some say ‘Do not ask God to guide your footsteps if you are not willing to move your feet.’ The last sign, Pisces carries the Dream of all the signs. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, the first responders. Initiation means more than taking a title. It means doing your vows. Aries are brave leaders, risk takers, rights fighters. They often have to make instant decisions to save lives. They are fiery Spirits that operate on instant instinct. Consulting is one of their best talents. Listen keenly. Ask your questions right now while they are there with you. They will be gone to the next fire quickly. Staying physically fit is essential and can be totally enjoyable. Prowess feels super! Independence is strong. Ride your bike!

Jupiter is looking for purpose with integrity! It takes a core truth and educates as many as will listen to why it is meaningful and worthy. Jupiter has a bold and confident way, expands, embellishes, emphasizes, gives extra! It’s edifying, LOL! Jupiter likes to play and tell whopper stories, have a great big dog and ride the winning horse! In Aries a lot of ground will be traveled, and quickly too! Speed is a delight. Records will be broken! Skating, surfing, skiing! Wow!   

The Galactic Center, Algol and Pluto!

All three of these are dark characters! The GC is a gigantic black hole! Algol has a dark reputation, ie beheadings, when your lights go out. Pluto is the furthest planet from the Sun, the darkest and frozen to boot!

Fixed star ALGOL and the GC are in lockstep! Each being star factors, they each take 72 years to move a degree. Currently Algol is at 26 Taurus and the GC is 27 Sag. Whenever one is activated, so is the other. Algol and the GC have an oblique off center position (inconjunct), aware, but out of the corner of your eye. That position is common in the charts of psychics. They ‘see’ peripheral factors that influence the outcome. Inconjuncts sometimes lead you on a goose chase, but maybe to greener pastures. You do get a greater perspective. Even if you go back home, you are different. You have perhaps made new friends and associates that can carry that sector for you. Excellent adjustments are in the offing. Destination Algol would not usually be a conscious choice, but sometimes it is part of our Path and it just happens. Square your shoulders and do it, eyes wide open. Fascinating encounter.

Algol is the baddest Star according to some! It is a rare triple star and eclipsing binary, which means it blinks, and changes brightness, even ‘disappears!’ It is the Medusa’s Head, carried in the left hand of the Hero, Perseus. On the dark side, ‘It causes misfortune, violence, decapitation, hanging, electrocution and mob violence, and gives a dogged and violent nature that causes death to the native or others. It is the most evil star in the heavens.’ Some say it’s not the ‘bad’ within us but pushing through blockages to the beauty beyond is what really matters. We can face our demons with sincere intent and life changes for the better! See more!  See more about the spiritual side…

Algol’s bad rep, strikes fear in a lot of hearts, but so does the Galactic Center when people find out it is one gigantic black hole!!! You could vanish in an instant! You astral travelers might should be careful? I like to think of Algol as the GC’s Guardian. Algol is considered to be a super powerful feminine force. It would take such an entity to protect the mighty GC! Their off center relationship may take you on the road less followed, so to speak. There is a draw to explore. Algol is ready to stomp her feet and ‘invite’ you to travel, or takes you another place once the GC’s info has been bestowed, a place that needs the information the most. 

Many give Algol a wide berth, plan carefully astrologically. To be on the safe side, Astrologers often allow 5 degrees for the effective range with Algol while most stars get only 1 degree range. If in neighboring signs, only 3 or less degrees might be used. If you have chart factors in that 5 degree range, one way or another you are connected with Algol. If you have questions, do see your astrologer.

Pluto is now at 24 Capricorn and moves only 3° a year. Pluto retrogrades back and forth through the degrees as it travels Capricorn. Anytime it is between 23 Cap 27 to 29 Cap 27, it will trine Algol. That period started Feb 2020, virus time, and will go through Jan 2024. It is now continuously trine Algol. Exact trines are formed 5 times: on Spring Equinox Mar 20, & June 5, 2021, and in 2022 Jan 17, 2022, Aug 29, Nov 16. 

Pluto has been having the Algol experience, and is one of the few who can stand up under this trial. Very luckily, the trine is the most favorable angle, so though not unscathed, he survives. Both Pluto and Algol are respected and incur life and death situations. One hopes the trine bends the relationship with Algol to a more satisfactory outcome. Earth signs, like Capricorn, especially being the last Earth sign, are a bit ‘indelible.’ Their effects are more long lasting. Keep turning the tables on Algol’s bad rep. Stay calm in the face of violence, even your own anger. Shift your connections so better can happen. Know your rights and choose safety unless/even if you are trying to save someone’s life. If you are the offender, get all the help you can to change. Many a fine leader has come from a dark place.

Those of you with your Saturn’s from 7 to 25 Aquarius will be having your 28/9 year Saturn Returns in Scorpio’s year! 

Lunar patterns! For Full Moons the 27th degree (degree of Algol/GC/Pluto) will be activated 8 times Sep 2021 to April 2022. Fixed stars Polaris – the North StarBetelgeuse in Orion are at 28 Gemini, and Procyon 25 Cn 47 will give varying additional effects per their type of connections with those signs. Those of you with factors close to 12 degrees in your charts will be activated by 7 New Moons from Oct 2021 to March 2022. Jan and March 2022 will have two New Moons in Pacific time zone. If you have factors at or within 3 degrees of both 12 and 27, all those New and Full Moons will activate you in sequence through the signs! Set a goal and approach it progressively from every angle, every sign!  

Enjoy these powerfully intense times! The possibilities are compelling!

Scorpio 2021 New SuperMoon Colorado Dark-Sky Friends Mike Pach

NIGHT CLUB Westcliffe/Silver Cliff in Colorado is an officially designated International Dark-Sky Community. Wondrous photo by Mike Pach. The Wall Street Journal title is The New Pandemic Hobby: Gazing at the Stars. Scorpio loves sharing the Night.

2021 Nov, Dec and 2022 Jan 2 and 31, and Mar there are five New Moons at 12 degrees in Scorpio, Sag, Cap AQ and Pisces. Those of you with chart factors close to 12 degrees will be activated by 7 New Moons from Oct 2021 to March 2022. Jan and March 2022 will have two New Moons in Pacific time zone. There is NO New Moon in February 2022. Set a goal and approach it progressively from every angle, every sign!

Bowl charts usually have more continuity of planetary connections closely held, but not this one. The New Moon is exactly opposite Uranus, planet of sudden changes in a fixed sign that doesn’t commonly like being disturbed! This chart has important aspects that have already happened, Mercury and Venus change signs before making their sextile in Scorpio and Capricorn the 6th, Venus sextiles Mars by, at this point, what is called an ‘out-of-sign aspect, signs that are not easily compatible. Since Venus is slowing to retrograde Dec 19, the promise of their connection doesn’t happen. Feisty Mars, in Scorpio with the New Moon is square, challenging old man Saturn, there are no active major aspects to Pluto, Jupiter or Neptune. Even the only classic settling aspect, Saturn sextile Chiron, is to Chiron in Aries, new beginnings, no standing still! To further emphasize that, Saturn squares, challenges Uranus the planet of change and awakenings, which brings us right back to the New Moon exactly opposite Uranus, the chart’s lead planet!

Uranus is the planet of freedom, evolution, the futurist. It works as an ultimate loner or in behalf of humanity, networking across the continents. Genius, research, invention are it’s talents. Awakening and Enlightenment are its invitations. On a bad day Scorpio says bah, humbug if he says anything at all. On a good day Scorpio is more than intrigued! He could become obsessed with the possibilities both as an individual and as an investor! The potential is enormous! There are days when Scorpio Mama Moon and Papa Sun speed along on their fine motorcycles and love the air breezing by. They see the Uranus in Taurus Earth all around them, feels their connection with the totality of the whole climate. They agree about what differences may be required to heal, maintain and secure what is so precious. Friendships may come and go, but we hope Earth as we know it now is with us lifelong and for our children’s children too.

Scorpio has a similarity to Uranus. Scorpio also wants the freedom to be himself, untampered with. He wants privacy and needs time alone. But they differ other ways. When in relationship, Scorpio wants the deepest intimacy, for life, with meaningful sex, but will do without if not possible. Jealousies, possessiveness are his undoings and the love of his life may leave him. Some say they are too intense, obsessive. Scorpio does shamanic healing from psyche to body, finances too. His own recovery rate from life threatening injuries is phenomenal! They understand taboos, can standby with deathing. Scorpio is a deep thinker, an invincible martial arts spiritual warrior that will give his life to save yours. Or if there is cruelty, he may feel justified in taking yours depending on circumstances. Scorpios powerfully relate with the underworld both for bad and good. They survive on their wits in the most dangerous situations – SEALs, special ops, marines, medics, policemen. Their totems are reptiles – the snake, don’t tread on me, the Eagle, bird of prey that flies higher consciousness. Halloween, Day of the Dead, is their time of connection with the wisdom of the Ancestors.

Mercury in Libra is the base planet of the Bowl chart, the one pushing the chart forward. His intent is to negotiate, collaborate, mediate, bring us to a working agreement. Many items on the table these days have extreme and passionate differences. Vaccines, climate/water, political matters of all kinds – indigenous, racial, sexual, women/children, housing. It’s not so easy to advise warrior Mars in Scorpio, the next planet he meets. Treading lightly, very skillfully, is a prime skill. We’re not always talking with a person who wants to respond, reciprocate. Putting yourself in the other person’s place can’t always be done because you don’t know their story, and they don’t always want to tell it and may be pretty bristly. Balance, being fair, may not be what they want either. They just want what they want. Lots of emotion. Libra is himself not always able to decide what he believes or wants. That’s ok. Person in progress. Yet, with Mercury close to Mars, you may find yourself in an unusual temper. You may be intelligently forthright and tell it like it is right to their face! People are so surprised they actually listen! In that moment they get it and there is no argument.

In some ways this is a ‘loose’ chart. New Moon is same degree opposite the Aquarian planet Uranus by 7 Minutes of space! In addition Saturn and Jupiter are both in Aquarius! Aspects that have already happened are free to move forward now. The New Moon is past their squares, difficulties, blocks with Saturn’s expectations. They didn’t like his friends or him either. Maybe they worked out their issues, maybe they didn’t and there are probably lingering mistrusts. Saturn might have thought he could cloud the issues by overwhelming them with big ideas, masses of research data. Hard to fool Scorpio though. If you try, it’s insulting and he knows that too. However, Saturn may have updated a lot of his thinking now that he is in Aquarius, so may have offered shocking ideas that brought you to your feet! Moon, generally more flexible than Sun, may have saved the day and accepted, at least a trial!

Mars is still square Saturn! Saturn has wiry experience on his side. He has dealt with young upstarts before. But it is a new Moon and he may listen this time, intrigued by the Scorpio savvy and persistence, financial insights. Times are indeed changing. Sometimes it takes a force like Mars in Scorpio to pierce the Saturn stone wall, and it isn’t always possible. But Saturn in Aquarius may have some air space between some crevices and the oxygen lets Mars start the fire! Scorpio loves molten lava and witches brews that shapeshifters sometimes depend on! Escape is possible! It may be a tight passage, but the discoveries and possibilities last more than a lifetime! Saturn has wisdom worth acquiring! Aquarius may be hard to pin down, but Mars in Scorpio is supremely quick and often invisible. He can just sit unmovingly nearby and absorb the many revelations. Saturn may be smarter than he looks. Mars may be caught, mesmerized by the Aquarian net of humanity and its resonant consciousness. Mars may have started with intent for himself and find himself working a supreme challenge, for the greater good of all. Scorpio knows how to bond champions together and gather the support of untold wealth in behalf of the new cause! On a very personal note, if your chart factors are connected with these degrees, say 2 to 9, there may be a dry spell in the sex department, or you may make a breakthrough of some kind you can hardly believe!

Mercury was square Pluto, a bitter taste, perhaps attempted blackmail. Usually Mercury in Libra is socially gracious, but if you are in court, there might be a strength and consequences you didn’t expect. If things go your way there could be an astounding breakthrough from long held beliefs. Collective change and the tides of time have shown the advantages of new ways. 

Though not in major aspects, Jupiter sits in a semi-sextile midpoint between Pluto and Neptune. He’s always the big thinker, ahead of his time in Aquarius. Pluto feels him nearby, how could you not, and is both strong in late Capricorn, but ready to batten down the hatches if he feels like it might be a takeover. Pluto is always curious, even in Capricorn that says don’t bother me, I’m busy! He could cause his own demise and get swept off his feet and to his chagrin have a great time. The old ways are lost, just like that, at that come hither snap of Jupiter’s fingers! They have outrageous conversations, Pluto revealing things he hasn’t even said to himself before! Extraordinary options may crisscross their dialogues. Quite heady, and possibly some outstanding results emerge!

Recently Jupiter was just dancing at Neptune’s wild party. Neptune, infinite knowledge, is fascinated with all beings from all galaxies and Jupiter in Aquarius, the sign of space, was one of the most entrancing! Profound exchanges can be made in all guises. It may have been the most fun any of them had in a long time! Spiritual crusades may have been planned involving psychics to Spock logic! Costumes were worth it, videos taken. 

The Pluto side was more privacy, secrets and responsibilities, serious commitments, uh, or cheating. The Neptune side is more wide open dreamtime, but 100% dedication of your life in spite of what the outer garments might make you think.

Saturn sextile Chiron is the only upcoming outer planet aspect, a potentially successful bonding aspect. Saturn may be unpredictable in Aquarius and Chiron in Aries is quick on his feet. Each may travel along a more or less parallel track, fruitfully checking in with each other time to time. Each like their freedom and independence. And that is what keeps each interested in the other, their new ideas. Each needs to be in a separate section, but maybe collaborating toward a mutual goal. They are both interested in marriage, but the AQ-Aries part skitters away. It is more a reaction to what they are rather than a specific person. It’s more what they sense than what they are thinking about. Friendship is fine.

Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus, the planet of Aquarius, can be confusing. There is camaraderie and being at odds in the oddest ways! You what?! Saturn having been in AQ, has been trying to ride the unpredictable creature. It’s somewhere between a bucking bronco and surfing! He’s now used to knowing he no longer knows. Life used to be so what it was. Now it is compounded by pandemic, climate and politics gone wild. Financial winds keep zig zagging! Friends and family are changing. Oddly, the planet of change, is also genius at work, and in Taurus of stabilizing, making things more sensible and grounded. Self reliance and the most elemental feed-ourselves vegetable gardening has thrived during the pandemic. At a time when things are so up in the air (Aquarius), we are becoming more sensible, even more simple. Being at home, many have cleaned out years of debris from their lives, gotten literally lighter. They are getting work that is more in tune with their core. Might be less money, but the happiness factor brings a smile and better health.

 


4 Behenian FIXED STARS! 

Wiki says: The Behenian fixed stars, [used by alchemists,] are a selection of fifteen stars considered especially useful for magical applications in the medieval astrology of Europe and the Arab world. Their name derives from Arabic bahman, “root,” as each was considered a source of astrological power for one or more planets. Each is also connected with a gemstone and plant that would be used in rituals meant to draw the star’s influence (e.g., into a talisman). When a planet was within six degrees of an associated star, this influence was thought to be particularly strong.

Erik Roth reminds us: The Behenian stars are stars that have been shared as magical but it is really all stars and planets have their own magic and can be utilized through symbolic, psychic, spiritual and otherwise magical purposes in our lives.  The near-infinite sky dome is a part of our lives and has been since our very distant ancestors hundreds of thousands of years looked upon them and not only wondered what they were but also from a place of seeking, of finding meaning and seeing something beyond themselves. 

Alphecca, one of the 15 Behenian Stars! This star is sometimes called Gemma, the jewel of the crown. A brilliant white star, it is also called the Pearl of the Crown. It is the Alpha star of Corona Borealis, the Northern Crown, at 12 Scorpio 35 (2021) only 5 minutes of space from the New Moon! Nov 4 is the annual Sun to Alphecca return!

Alphecca marks the loop, or knot, of the ribbon along which are fastened the buds, flowers, or leaves of the wreath shown in early drawings with two long out-streaming ends. Corona Borealis represents the garland given by Venus to Ariadne on the occasion of her marriage to Bacchus after she had been forsaken by Theseus. Manilius said it ‘sparkles in the mid forehead. He was quite taken with the Crown. See his eloquent thoughts about it’s relationship with Virgo! Jamie at Astrology King says: it is of the nature of Venus and Mercury (idealistic, psychic, handsome, neat, lovable, refined, genteel, intelligent). It gives honor, dignity and poetical and artistic ability. 

With Moon: Public honor and dignity, suffers through law, partners and neighbors, trouble through underhanded dealings of enemies but eventual triumph over them, bad for love affairs, some faithful friends, greatly esteemed by Venus and Mercury people. (Robson) Honors and preferment.

With Sun: Active and brilliant mind, self-seeking, subject to scandal that does not affect the position. Honors and preferment.

This all then is opposite Uranus, which is opposite the New Moon! With Uranus Robson says: Selfish, mental affliction and violence at end of life, psychic power, suffering through occultism, deceptive, many false friends, small inheritance obtained with difficulty, losses by law, enemies and mercurial affairs, sorrow through children or an adopted child, domestic trouble through own acts, danger of a violent death. 

We have come a long way in our thinking about Uranus than when it was first discovered. Think in modern terms of the benefits of this planet and combine that with the issues Robson perceived. Uranus rules electronics and computers, networking of all kinds, humanitarian efforts, freedom, awakening, change, evolution. Alphecca’s charm and intelligence work well with so many opportunities!

Aquarian Abraham Lincoln 0°03′, J. Paul Getty 1°36′ had it with Uranus.

Fixed Stars Algorab 13 Libra – Scorpio’s neighbor signs, Sirius 14 Cancer – Scorpio’s earlier water sign, are in a most favorable trine!!! I imagine few of you have done much work with or even heard of Algorab! It is on the right wing of the Raven, in the constellation Corvus, the Crow.  If you love the intelligent Corvids this may bode well for you, if not, all the nasties you hear of them may be part of the Truth.

  • In the US their rep is not so good. Astrologer Jamie Partridge summarizes: Algorab is one of the 15 magic related Behenian Fixed Stars. Its image is a raven, snake or negro dressed in black. It makes the wearer angry, bold, courageous and a backbiter, gives bad dreams, the power of summoning or driving away evil spirits and protection from winds and the malice of men and devils. – Whew! That’s impressive! If you sense those things in advance it can be a blessed forewarning.
  • He also states the 28th Chinese Xiù – 軫 (Zhěn) Chariot thinks:  This is the celestial Carriage and it represents the transport of tributes from foreign lands to the Emperor, thus the accumulation of wealth. It also presides over travel of all kinds and vehicles. It also presaged favorable winds and an end to storms. Events in business bring great profit and everything done heralds fortunate returns. Paying homage to ancestors will honor one with a “Dragon Child”. It is also a great day for marriages and births. – Quite different!
  • But some modern astrologers concur that it shows up in terrorism events! See the details at Astrology King, Jamie’s site! Don’t ‘terrorize’ yourself or provoke others; help others and yourself to be safe. Be aware of triggers and danger signals and leave; talk later if possible. Use your intelligence in a good way.
  • The New Moon most favorably trines the potent, brightest star of the night, Sirius! Sirius enjoys a terrific reputation for the most part, but also called the Dog Star, watch out for dog bites, LOL! It is another of the 15 Behenian stars. Sirius is of the nature of Jupiter and Mars (high ambition, pride, love of power, grandeur of view.) It gives honor, renown, wealth, ardor, faithfulness, devotion, passion and resentment, and makes its natives custodians, curators and guardians. It gives honor, the goodwill and favor of men and the airy spirits, and the power to pacify nobles and others. And to tease you, it rules beryl, savine, mugwort, dragonwort and the tongue of a snake. See a lot more at Astrology King!

    Uranus in Taurus then is also in top good fortune sextiling Sirius! It’s adventures, research, local and international companions will lead to stunning opportunities. If you aren’t at the forefront, put your efforts with those who support their efforts! Work with companies who sponsor the world being a better place for all, starting with climate, safety, good quality water sustainably collected. Changes will be meaningful, keep your eye on the goal! The long term effects will have lasting results, honorable and sustainable.

Many 2021 factors have had an Aquarian component, including this New Moon being precisely in the same degree as the Aquarian planet Uranus! We are preparing for Pluto’s entry into Aquarius in 2023. We are more aware now that some connections need reworking, fixing, updating. Some ideas have long term implications worth working for, are financially productive, spiritually satisfying! Make notes then network like crazy to get more ideas to complete the package, select who will work together, and get it rolling! See Saturn in Aquarius Saturn is open to new areas of responsibility. Chiron in leader Aries is livening us with the latest healing and teaching ideas! Jupiter is back in Aquarius jazzing up Saturn’s prospects!

Pluto Trine Fixed Star Algol 26 Taurus 27 in 2020 – 2024

Pluto is of Scorpio, the sign opposite Algol’s sign Taurus, but Pluto now in Capricorn gentles that opposition because Pluto Capricorn trines, favors Algol. Pluto rules death and rebirth while Algol is considered to bear misfortune, often death. They understand each other. Neither is to be messed with. Capricorn is noted for facing reality squarely. 

Algol is the baddest Star according to some! It is a rare triple star and eclipsing binary, which means it blinks, and changes brightness, even ‘disappears!’ It is the Medusa’s Head, carried in the left hand of the Hero, Perseus. On the dark side, ‘It causes misfortune, violence, decapitation, hanging, electrocution and mob violence, and gives a dogged and violent nature that causes death to the native or others. It is the most evil star in the heavens.’ Some say it’s not the ‘bad’ within us but pushing through blockages to the beauty beyond is what really matters. We can face our demons with sincere intent and life changes for the better! See more!

Many give Algol a wide berth, plan carefully astrologically. To be on the safe side, Astrologers often allow 5 degrees for the effective range with Algol while most stars get only 1 degree range. If you have chart factors in that 5 degree range, one way or another you are connected with Algol. If you have questions, do see your astrologer.

Pluto is now at 24° Capricorn and moves only 3° a year. Pluto retrogrades back and forth through the degrees as it travels Capricorn. Allowing a 3 degree range, anytime Pluto is between 23 Cap 27 to 29 Cap 27, it will trine Algol at 26 Taurus 27. That period started Feb 2020 – virus time, and will go through Jan 2024. It is now continuously trine Algol. Exact trines are formed 5 times: on Spring Equinox Mar 20, & June 5, 2021, and in 2022 Jan 17, 2022, Aug 29, Nov 16.

One hopes the trine, a good aspect, bends the relationship with Algol to a more satisfactory outcome. Earth signs are a bit ‘indelible.’ Their effects are more long lasting. Keep turning the tables on Algol’s bad rep. Recent violence, covid deaths, may leave raw feelings of grief, bitterness, betrayal. Freedom is still at issue. Stay calm in the face of violence, shift your connections so better can happen, turn a page, try out some new possibilities. Know your rights and choose safety unless/even if you are trying to save someone’s life. If you are the offender, get all the help you can to change. Many a fine leader has come from a dark place.

Pluto understands much of this. Capricorn often has working answers to bring us back together in common cause. Be safe and be well. Tread gently. Get all the facts before you pass judgment. Steady in the Light.  

Algol’s connection with the Galactic Center!

Algol and the GC are in lockstep! Each being star factors, they each take 72 years to move a degree. Currently Algol is at 26 Taurus and the GC is 27 Sag. Whenever one is activated, they both are. Algol and the GC have an oblique position (inconjunct), aware, but out of the corner of your eye. That position is common in the charts of psychics. They ‘see’ peripheral factors that influence the outcome. Inconjuncts sometimes lead you on a goose chase, but maybe to greener pastures. You do get a greater perspective. Even if you go back home, you are different. You have perhaps made new friends and associates that can carry that sector for you, or be a link to that sector when you need it. Excellent adjustments are in the offing. Destination Algol would not usually be a conscious choice, but sometimes it is part of our Path and it just happens. Square your shoulders and do it, eyes wide open. Fascinating encounter.

Oh, yes, Algol strikes fear in a lot of hearts, but so does the GC when people find out it is one gigantic black hole!!! You could vanish in an instant! You astral travelers might should be careful? I like to think of Algol as the GC’s Guardian. Algol is considered to be a super powerful feminine force. It would take such an entity to protect the mighty GC! Algol is ready to stomp her feet and ‘invite’ you to travel, or takes you another place once the GC’s info has been bestowed, a place that needs the information the most.

Pluto rules Scorpio. Mercury sits in matchmaker Libra, one sign behind Scorpio, wanting to talk, mediate, be an ambassador! Libra is looking at laws of man and natural planetary laws. Libra is light, Scorpio is dark. Libra understands opposites, complements. Pluto is in Capricorn a challenging square sign to Libra. They both want certain proprieties but Libra can be nervous of Capricorn’s demands, at worst quashed. Capricorn may feel shy, that he doesn’t measure up to Libra’s natural sense of refinement. Libra loves the arts; Capricorn is more practical. Cap can help Libra get up into business, while Libra can help him polish his manners and make his products more attractive.

Algol is in Taurus, the first Venus sign, has a sensual touch, loves earthy beauty, sculpts its own existence! Libra, the second Venus sign is an air sign. Venus may love perfumes and dance, more sophisticated styles. The profound Galactic Center is in fiery Sagittarius, the next sign after Scorpio. The GC is enjoying lots of laughs and adventure stories, sends rays and bolts of information we are barely capable of downloading let alone understand, and it’s not on anyone’s schedule! Though ‘compatible’ signs, Libra generally prefers a more gentile pace, more quiet conversation over tea, and formal by invitation or appointment meetings, tête-à-têtes. Libra will find themselves being pressed to use their negotiating skills – tact and diplomacy, and loosening up in spite of themselves! They don’t want to miss anything! They will be blessed with more freedom, delighted by the bucking bronco! 

On a fine New Moon night, things are blended, no Moonlight or shadows. There is a certain equality as the playing field is equalized. It seems more quiet, even subdued. Without the contrasts and sharp edges we are more receptive… Even if there is a breeze, there are no moving shadows… Sleep can be deeper.

Note subtle changes, tune in to many channels, seek lifesaving connections!

Taurus/Scorpio Partial Lunar Eclipse Full Beaver MicroMoon! 


Friday November 19, 27 Taurus-Scorpio 14, 12:57 AM Pacific!


On a Mission! Have a good water source, root deep, line up your powers, fly high, get it done!

 

Taurus-Scorpio Lunar Eclipse Capitol Marine Helicopter NASA Bill Ingalls

A United States Marine Corps helicopter is seen flying through this scene of the full moon and the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2012, from Arlington National Cemetery. (NASA/Bill Ingalls) Water sign Scorpio rules SEALs and Marines.

Times have changed since President George Washington, signed the bill for the creation of a national capital on the Potomac River into law on July 16 1790, in the sign Cancer. Some consider Washington DC to be a Scorpio city because Congress held its first session there on November 17, 1800, 10 years later. It’s birthday falls just 2 days before this year’s Nov 19 Partial Lunar Eclipse spanning Taurus – Scorpio!

I’m voting with Scorpio for many reasons, here are a few. Cancer would have brought in more women into power. Scorpio is a natural ninja, money master, and many of our founding fathers were wealthy. A lot of our politics is scrapping about money. Scorpio runs corporations, lobbies and has international connections with networks of hidden alliances. Politically so much happens behind the scenes – right up Scorpio’s ally! Scorpio rules large rivers like the Potomac. 

Get out your cameras! When the Full Moon is low, it looks bigger and brighter than when it’s higher up in the sky. This is called the Moon illusion, and actually makes more of a difference to what it looks like than the real boost you get from it being a bit closer to Earth, a SuperMoon! Though this is a MicroMoon, it will still look a little bigger. Time and Date says ‘Because a MicroMoon is further away, it looks approximately 14% smaller than a Supermoon. In addition, the illuminated area appears 30% smaller, so it might look a little less bright.’

ECLIPSE! EarthSky’s content partner Fred Espenak explains: The November 19, 2021, eclipse is an exceptionally deep partial lunar eclipse. With a just thin sliver of the moon exposed to direct sun at maximum eclipse, the rest of the moon should take on the characteristically ruddy colors of a total lunar eclipse [Blood Moon]. 

The eclipse will darken the moon for much of the globe. Most locations will see up to 97% of the moon slip into Earth’s shadow. North America has the best location to see the entirety of the eclipse. Find maps and timing for the eclipse below, and remember to convert UTC to your time. You can visit timeanddate.com to get an exact timing of the eclipse from your location.

How exciting, an Eclipse! Mother Moon will be ‘protected’ from Sun’s light, instead be in in that special Lunar Eclipse glow! She will be free for some time to dance her own special way. In Taurus it will be with Mother Nature ~ with the Faeries in the meadow. Take some sage/ light if it is safe to do so. In your warm wraps, lie on the ground. Feel your body on the ground, sinking into the ground to become one with Mother Earth…breathe together. Feel the night air on your eyelids. Your heartbeat. Listen to the silence – the leaves, the night birds, animals calling, searching for food. You may slip into the Dreamtime… If you are one to do it, make prayers as suits you. Give gratitude.   Have a sip of that warm cider, Lunar tea, hot chocolate. Blessed be.

At this time of year beavers begin taking shelter in their lodges after storing enough food for the winter. Beavers are now taking on greater significance because they create much needed wetlands, improve water quality, store water during droughts, minimize flood risk and mitigate flooding peaks, increase biodiversity. Scorpio is a water sign, rules storage, underwater treasure recovery, so Beaver is an excellent choice zodiacally for this time. 

27 Degree Sequence for SIX months! 2021 Oct, Nov, Dec and 2022 Jan, Feb, and Mar start a ‘season’ of six Full Moons at 27 degrees Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo. The Full Moons at the 24 to 29 degrees, will activate Algol and the Galactic Center at 26 and 27 and their Pluto connections strongly 8 times Sep 2021 to April 2022. Fixed stars Polaris – the North StarBetelgeuse in Orion are at 28 Gemini, and Procyon 25 Cn 47, will give varying additional effects per their type of connections with those signs. Note where these factors fall in your chart, which house(s). That is the section of  your life that they activate.

This is a Bowl chart, with the Full Moon signs at beginning and end! Mars in the base position pushes from Scorpio. It may be a subtle nudge or a shove you can’t ignore! Mars wants movement now, Scorpio may be obsessed with dedication. With Mercury there, it’s all he thinks about. Sun will get results one way or another. He may call on associates, or conserve his powers and is a force to be reckoned with when he releases the dogs.

Moon leads in steady Taurus! Taurus and Scorpio can persevere through enormous resistance. They can use silence, seduction, Taurus’s weight, a pace so slow they hypnotize you and you didn’t realize until it already happened. They can walk straight up to you and tell you why what you are doing isn’t going to happen and what’s actually better, and you just listen. Check. Scorpio is quite psychic and Taurus is sensibly grounded. Taurus can know by touch where the weaknesses are. Scorpio can heal what needs it. 

Saturn and Jupiter are in Aquarius, the sign squarely between Taurus and Scorpio! Mars and Uranus, Trouble and Blink, are leaving Saturn behind. Saturn has been organizing the odd mélange of Aquarian/Uranian accumulation only to find the genius in it the way it is! He encouraged Uranus to keep seeking, make the changes that will inevitably cause more changes like dominoes! Saturn advised Mars to focus and not waver or leave if it gets tough. Mars looks for what’s new, how to get started. Uranus in Taurus has been steadily plowing humanity’s thoughts for ways to make the biggest changes possible in the shortest time. Many people are being called on, and like in a barn raising, will get phenomenal things done together no one person could do alone. But Mars in Scorpio is like 10 people! He has super intensity, charisma to charm them all, and he can lead several teams at once! Miracles! He carries an Eagle on his shoulder, snakes in his hands, the fire of the Phoenix at his root! He’s somewhat scary, perhaps a bit ruthless, but impressive and inspiring! We’re on a mission, right?!

Mars in Scorpio is being sextiled by Venus in Capricorn! That’s a sweet combination of lovely and handsome. Scorpio and Capricorn, the rutty goat, both love sex. One can be the Master. There can be a long term relationship or a relationship of mutual convenience. It is a terrific business combination and may involve love related businesses. It would be fortunate for contractors and building, interior design for the rich and famous, designer clothing! The CEO may be a woman, a superior museum may be refurbished or started, antiquities bought and sold. Medical businesses for the aging, bonded services and security are options. These are all thoughts in your mind. Venus comes really close to Mars, but she is slowing to retrograde and never makes the exact aspect. Their favorable near encounter shows the possibilities that are likely to prove to have value, have influence over the gist of your decisions. Good luck! 

This also means Venus in Capricorn is trine Uranus in Taurus, a good earthy combination that just happened the day before! Capricorn likes to keep things moving and Uranus is electric, always pondering the environment with synapses faster than the speed of light! Taurus is Venus’s first sign, and both love comfy clothes and furnishings, fine textures, relaxing massages. Yet in this case, no one can sit still. So be comfy as you go. Take frequent breaks, do things you love to do so you enjoy staying engaged. Exciting friendships are likely. Doing things to make living better are satisfying. More productive land use in today’s climate, building attractive sustainable, money saving homes and commercial quarters feels good and people like being there. Groups form more naturally and a strong kinship develops.

Mercury in Scorpio has just been trine Neptune in his own sign Pisces. Both signs are psychic. Scorpio is shamanic; Neptune is the spiritual mystic. They don’t always need words to communicate, they simply commune. Neptune carries the dreams of all the signs, speaks of how Scorpio’s dreams have a necessary place in the zodiacal sequence. It’s where a deepening of the Soul occurs, where we let go, detox from old hurts, heal the suffering of ourselves and others. Scorpio helps Souls transition from this plain. Mercury recognizes and deeply feels what the old Master is saying. Being logical he can put words to their shared experiences, to Neptune’s perceptions that others don’t yet understand. It’s a gift, so others need to know how to do it too.  

Mercury is finding his way to Pluto’s gate. Pluto is Scorpio’s ruler and in Capricorn he has laws in mind, age, building and housing, parenting. Mercury is sextile, in a position to find opportunities, bring Pluto up-to-date and current news and new ways of getting connected safely. Some are doing quite well while others are suffering too much to lift their heads any longer. Human remediation is in order. Mercury gather’s so much information, it commingles in his head in infinite patterns, creating natural channels, stumbling on heretofore unknown possibilities! The intensity is phenomenal! Capricorn sees the logic at work as Mercury incorporates Caps ideas too, and likes the comprehensive results. No one else could do this the way a Scorpio mind can! They can’t stop talking, up all night! In a short time they are deeply bonded. 

Scorpio Mercury is squaring fiery Jupiter in wild Aquarius! Scorpio likes behind the scenes, and Jupiter AQ is anything but! In fact, if Mercury has secrets, they may be outed. Mercury may not like him, but can’t help be entertained and intrigued, but might be glad when it is all over. It’s a bit unnerving being out thought by this unpredictable being! Rarely would Mercury find anyone more intense than he could tolerate, but this is a likely time. Small doses at a time will do well. Many of Jupiter’s suggestions will be costly, maybe no one yet knows how to do them, ways may be found that will pay the costs as they go – they pay for themselves! Mercury in Scorpio is no shrinking violet. He has met major challenges before and done well. Jupiter may do well to watch his back side, LOL. If Mercury is seriously offended, revenge may be in the forecast. Both need to be respectful.

Jupiter is being left by the Full Moon axis! TruthSeeker Jupiter speaks plainly, even shockingly to Mercury and did with  Sun in Scorpio also! His perspectives opened a lot of conduits of thinking that will be taking them another 3 months at the least to process. There will be certain identity shifts that will in turn wake up others. New purposes will be found that are needed for future successes. Jupiter had a personal session with Moon in her kitchen. He especially liked her heavenly banana cream pie dessert! He told her of his travels, how the families and women of the world are doing, how the lands are being used, which animals are threatened or mistreated and what is being done. He is interested in her situation, what she needs for her comfort and peace. She gave him a place to rest on his journey, listened about the challenges he encountered and offered sensible advice about cycles, how to be steady in a storm. Blessings.

Moon and Sun are also leaving Pluto behind! In positive aspects, Moon trined; Sun sextiled. Moon and Pluto are water sign planets, both in earth signs. Taurus is opposite Pluto’s sign Scorpio, the same signs as the Full Moon! Water factors are sensitive and quite psychic. Moon is empathetic and mothering, but she can give mother orders too! Earth signs prefer grounding and sensible behavior and endeavors. Taurus is known for working with the land, body building, while Capricorn builds the home and business. Taurus is sensual while Pluto/Scorpio are sexual. Taurus ponders while Scorpio delves behind the scenes into the life force that makes things live or let go. Through touch Taurus discovers anomalies that Scorpio can heal at their root cause. Both these signs love money. Taurus likes it in his hands, in his pocket. Scorpio runs the corporation and all its subsidiaries, his fortune multiplying in his many accounts and further investments. Where Taurus and Scorpio investments may overlap is in mineral and oil wealth, water rights versus pollution. Scorpio can be a polluter or run a clean house, in fact, be in the business of remediation. Mother Moon may seem childish, at times even simple, but only a fool would underestimate her. Mothers always have the power to bring others to obedience. Father Sun may find himself blackmailed, Scorpio always has his secrets, or Moon knows him too well and tells him what’s what. 

Father Sun sextile Pluto were more easy together. Scorpio is Pluto’s sign. They speak the same language and know when to be careful of each other, to keep confidences without even saying so. Pluto is in Capricorn, the Father sign. There is a knowing respect of each other. Sun wants his due, his strengths to be noted. Capricorn has the rulebook and let there be no mistakes or wasting time. When Scorpio is on the same page, he is obsessed to get that job done. Capricorn is like the cat that swallowed the canary! He scored when this connection happened and things are finally getting done at the rate he prefers! They have each learned from the other. Sun knows more about what he is suited for and being appreciated for his obsession! Capricorn sees Scorpio’s heart light burning deeply from within and knows the warmth of that passion. He finds himself giving more now too and sees how it affects the people around him. They are more loyal and willing. It is more than getting a job done, it’s a sharing.

The most important outer planet combination right now is Saturn in AQ sextile Chiron in Aries Nov 26! At 8 AQ 40, this will be the last of the three aspects. Saturn has worked against the odds of changes the pandemic, and climate, have brought to harness energies from all over the planet, to help as many as he can. For those of you affected, we can only humbly thank you for all the work you have done, the hours put in nobody knows about but you. Some of you even lost your lives in our behalf. This has been a race against time, with Chiron, the old Centaur healer, in Aries, trying to be the first to help. It has been a challenge saving lives, inaugurating new vaccines, getting people through their various fears. Many of us will have learned a lot about responsible self care, letting go of criticisms and expectations.

In spite of all the health matters, for some, new businesses will be thriving. New jobs will save us from boredom extinction! Saturn in Aquarius is seeing new opportunities that have emerged. Chiron knows that is a healing, that some old ways must be left behind. It’s not the same world anymore. Aries loves challenges from the ground floor up, being the first! Though business may thrive, romantic relationships may not be so successful. Aquarius and Aries aren’t marriage minded though Chiron is. Give those a lot of time before signing any papers. Six months minimum, a year would be better. It is possible that new ways of having relationships will come into use as the times have changed. See more please

Pluto, Algol, Galactic Center! Pluto 24 Capricorn is trine fixed star Algol 26 Taurus 10. Galactic Center 27 Sagittarius is lock step with Algol. See all about them above in the New Moon, Fixed Stars section. The Full Moon axis is at 27 Scorpio-Taurus 14, fully connected with them all, but most powerfully with Algol! The Moon herself has just been conjunct Algol! Taurus is a strong sign and Moon is strongly intuitive. As the myths go, Algol had a hard time, yet she is considered to be a super powerful feminine force. Maybe Mother Moon will show herself to be of steady good faith and be trusted to sooth the suffering beast within us. The odds are long in this situation.  

Of Moon conjunct Algol Robson says ‘Violent death or extreme sickness.’ Ebertin a more recent astrological researcher says ‘Very difficult to avoid accidents and severe injuries.’ Yet here at 78 is the long time performer, invincible 4-planets-in-Leo, Mick Jagger, whose Taurus Moon is 1°24′ from Algol! Be the Tiger of your own Spirit and take Algol on the ride with you! She will enjoy the sights and forget her old sorrows and shames! Moon is a healer in her own right, and Taurus never gives up!

Be strong and honorable in your purpose, blessed in your progress!

Libra 2021-22 Celestial HighLights, Timeline, Overview!

Libra 4 Afghan Women Negotiators

In Sep 2020, Four Afghan women who endured the Taliban’s oppressive rule and have fought for fragile gains since the terrorists were ousted, are facing the hardline group in peace talks. Here a year later in Sep 2021, Fawzia Koofi has left because under house arrest she wouldn’t be effective anymore. Interview  Two others have left. That now leaves Fatima Gailani, Senior Negotiator. She says “Every woman in Afghanistan has a fear… we always have a fear that whenever there are changes in Afghanistan and whenever there is a political change, always women are hurt.’ Politician and high-profile women’s rights campaigner, she survived two assassination attempts during her career pre Sep 2020, yet even now, Sept 10, 2021, she still hopes to talk. In Conversation  Photo by Sarabi Habiba    

We think of Libra as beauty, models, fine art in human form, but we are finding ourselves redefining their stature as women giving them so much more to be proud of! Super matchmaking leads to adept assessment of who people are and what they want. Intelligence leads to the ability to be an ambassador, negotiator, and when the going gets tough, being able to turn the tables with both sides satisfied for the time being, able to gather again after a trial period. 

We now have International Women’s Day annually March 8! Women from all over the world are standing up, even at the risk of their own lives. There have always been women warriors and who served in wars, as missionaries, witches, high priestesses, nurses/healers and teachers! There have been many heroines in the past. In the US, astonishing activist Libran Eleanor Roosevelt, amazing adventurer Amelia Earhart, the staunch equality seeking Suffragettes and activist Rosa Parks that were attacked and abused in the process, women in space who knew they might not come back, are only a few, but step by step others have gathered courage and followed in their own ways.

World wide so many have stepped up to the plate. One of my heroines is Kenya’s first African woman Nobel Peace Prize laureate Wangari Maathai, no birthtime, also awarded the Indira Gandhi Peace Prize. She was a pioneer in linking environmental protection with human rights. She planted trees, which was a political problem. She was arrested, beaten, put in prison. After years of struggle WIKI, she was appointed Assistant Minister in the Ministry for Environment and Natural Resources. It’s a miracle she lived through it all. Hats off to a courageous fighter.

Modern women! Three great women negotiators are leaders of our times: Billionaire Sheryl Sandberg, Harvard Business School, who negotiated her wages with Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg in 2008. Madeleine Albright, speaker at Program on Negotiation event at Harvard, was U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and secretary of state, negotiated with Putin in Clinton’s behalf. Then there is the astonishing Angela Merkel, Harvard’s 2019 Commencement speaker! Though not glamorous, and a scientist, she is the first female German Chancellor, previously was German Federal Minister of the Environment! She is described as ‘arguably the most powerful woman in the world!’ See their stories, insights about their success!
 
Young women have made news! Pakistani Malala Yousafzai survived being shot by the Taliban, advocates for equal educational rights for young women, the youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate! X González (Emma), as a high school senior, survived the February 2018 Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, and in response co-founded the gun-control advocacy group Never Again MSD. Greta Thunberg, no birthtime, Swedish environmental activist, suffers from Aspergers, yet is known for challenging world leaders to take immediate action for climate change mitigation. ‘No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference,’ was a #1 New York Times bestseller by Time’s 2019 Person of the Year “Greta Thunberg is already one of our planet’s greatest advocates.” —Barack Obama  All these young women have lived with their lives on the line. And there are more

Are Women better negotiators than men? In Lisa Gates’ 2011 post she writes:

‘In Susannah Breslin’s post “Why Men Are Better Negotiators than Women” she offers that if we see negotiation through the male filter she describes, not only do they “lie better,” they use negotiation “to intimidate” and are therefore better negotiators. And indeed, this is the perspective many women hold as true, and why they resist negotiation at all costs.

She writes: The Big Secret! You’ve been living a lie. In negotiation—anything from salary to noisy neighbors to barking dogs—women don’t need intimidation and lies (usually, but that’s another post). We naturally seek affinity and common ground. We are more concerned with relationship and mutual best interest than we are intimidation and for this reason we are much more naturally disposed than men to produce collaborative, durable agreements—meaning our agreements last, and don’t induce lingering resentment. We are good at this.

The only thing we lack is confidence and a bit of study in the exquisite tools and strategies of interest-based (win-win) negotiation. Once we get this down, we transform everything.’

This is not a whole answer, but it gets you started thinking about it.

Aug 2021 Kati Shonk writes: Men tend to achieve better economic results in negotiation than women, negotiation research studies have found overall. Such gender differences are generally small, but evidence from the business world suggests that they can add up over time, and if you want to narrow the gender gap in negotiation, there are strategies you can employ.

In a study in the Psychological Bulletin, Jens Mazei of the University of Münster and his colleagues analyzed 51 past studies that compared women and men’s negotiation results with the goal of determining whether women can capitalize on certain characteristics of negotiation to improve their outcomes. Here are three of their results:

  1. View Yourself as an Agent for your Organization. Women negotiate more assertively for other individuals, such as their employees, than they do for themselves, research finds. Because negotiating for others is a communal behavior consistent with the traditional female gender role, women may feel more comfortable pushing harder for others than they do for themselves, researchers argue. 
  2. Across the studies they examined, Jens Mazei and his team found that the gap between men and women’s outcomes narrowed as they gained negotiating experience. [Keep negotiating!]
  3. Gender differences in economic outcomes tend to be smaller when negotiators receive information about the bargaining range in a negotiation simulation, past research has found. women, in particular, may be able to capitalize on this result by researching the typical salary range in a field, for example, and then, to avoid a social backlash, referencing these standards during their negotiations. See more!

Not everyone knows Libra is the sign of war and peace! Libran lawyer courtroom battles can be brutal. Librans are the best war strategists. Yet, due to culturation, Libra women are perhaps more vulnerable to the discomforts of ‘battle.’ Women are supposed to be nice, to make things better, pretty, and comfortable. But if they get their teeth into the justice of it all, you better get your facts straight, your armor on and hope you don’t insult them! They make powerful rights fighters for other women/children who have been abused or aren’t being treated equally or fairly in divorce or child custody/safety rights circumstances.  

Women are showing up everywhere all over the world! Libras are culturally interested, seeking balance and better being for all. Read here about 6 inspirational young female leaders There are so many exciting venues ~ fashion integrity, local to global food systems/security, health and medical care, psychological assistance to world leaders and people working with the pandemic, empowering children and families with the insights and skills to promote their social and economic well-being for a better future, human rights. Women in the UN are coming from many countries hoping to tip the balance in climate matters. Meet 15 Women Leading the Fight Against Climate Change and see the video!

Times are changing. Though faster now, it still seems seriously slow to many of us… Civil and sexual rights are tough topics to this day. Racial and abortion matters are deeply rooted. Animal rights are newer on the scene as more is learned about them. Climate and Water are soon becoming essential matters. We are counting on you Libras to get us connected and help us with your fine negotiation skills. Speak for us; teach us how to speak well. 

There are so many more educated women coming along, advocating for numerous new things as well as the age old matters. Gradually we are overcoming the fear of intelligence! We will come to be more grateful for women who educate themselves and others, and make a difference. We are becoming more morally aware. 

We are incredibly proud of you Libra women, and men, for your valuable talents and finesse!

Thank you to all of these heroines and to all of you who support them!

Libra Overview of Your Year to Come…

Libra 2021 Tibetan Women Folkdancers Nyingchi Peach Festival

Tibet is a Libra country. Local folk performances mark the opening of the 13th Nyingchi Peach Cultural and Tourism Festival in Gala village, Nyingchi, Southwest China’s Tibet autonomous region, March 30, 2015. [Photo/Xinhua]

Blessings on the many exotic and lovely encounters in your coming year. Seek special connections at universities, cultural programs. Volunteer with visitors and help immigrants. Try out some of their foods, wear their garments, and learn about their customs. Learn a new language. Worship with them, meet their holy people. Feel what they feel. Share your heart. 

Libras are adept at integration, valuing changes made by honoring difference. They are astute listeners, meaningful speakers, mindful thinkers. They can mirror their acquaintances so there is a camaraderie through mutual experience. What a gift. Let them be your guide. Add to your own talents. Explore the world right where you are! Your life is enriched. 

Many 2020 and 2022 charts are Bowls, rare Bundles, and Buckets and seesaws! They are a concentrated force! The Feb 11 2021 SIX planet air sign Aquarius New Moon stellium Bundle Chart was a super example! All the planets were in a potent 113 degrees, less than a third of the wheel! See more about Bowls and Bundles If a singular planet or a pair or cluster of very close planets venture beyond these formations, a Bucket Chart is formed, emphasis on these ‘handle’ planets. If several planets loosely spaced move opposite the base group, a Seesaw Chart is formed, planetary oppositions common, balance sought. In these times when the slow moving outer planets are closely together, the base group is steady. The Bundles and Bowls alternate with the Buckets and Seesaws as ‘inner’ planets, Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus, sometimes Mars, proceed on their own out of the base group during the year. In her 27 day cycle, Moon jumps out ahead every month. Sun is on the other side 5 to 6 months of the year.

2021 has been and still is a super special AQUARIAN TIME! The February 11 SIX planets stellium Aquarian New Moon may have inaugurated a 2nd wave of the ‘Dawning of the Age of Aquarius!’ 59 Years ago in Feb 1962, the New Moon Eclipse chart had seven Aquarian planets and lasted longer. Saturn and Jupiter are in Aquarius, made the Great Conjunction Solstice Dec 21 2020! 2015 to 2024 Uranus, the planet of Aquarius, has been and is the lead outer planet. 2021 has numerous outer planet aspects in Aquarius and ones formed to Aquarius’s planet Uranus, plus, Jupiter sextiles the Galactic Center three times! These prepare us for Pluto entering Aquarius March 2023, Pluto on a 248 year cycle! 

Mind you, the Ages are long, roughly every 2,150 years. Even 100 years would be a reasonable time frame for a transition from one to another. I think we could easily include 1962 and 2020/21 events and Pluto’s sign change into Aquarius in 2023 as part of the process. Pluto takes 248 years to circuit the zodiac. FYI the ages are reversed through the signs due to the Precession of Equinoxes. The previous age was Pisces, so we are now backing into the last degrees of Aquarius.

Going back to recent planetary action, Saturn and Jupiter made the leap for freedom, went into Aquarius Dec 16 and 19, made the GREAT CONJUNCTION Winter Solstice Dec 21, 2020! As one journey ends another begins. Pluto is in its final years of being in Capricorn. Pluto holds the power of life and death, represents the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes. In our lives that can be represented by poverty, bankruptcy, turned to wealth and powerful relationships. Capricorn is the mountain goat that rises to the heights, has staying power in extreme conditions, oversees, makes the laws, is the most efficient of all the signs, a survivor due to his own talents.

To make this Capricorn facet more potent, Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, and Jupiter were with Pluto as his support team! The difficult part was the Jan 12 2020 Saturn conjunct Pluto that probably brought the Virus, and Jupiter, a traveler, that had a role in transmitting it from China to other places. Yet, Pluto will continue to make impressive progress these last years even though Saturn and Jupiter have left him, now are in Aquarius. He may do even better because they have changed signs, leading him, wanting collaboration with the people to cure and heal, prevent more illness – and not just the virus, but working other matters as well, climate, politics. Since Pluto will be going into Aquarius March 2023, their work now is critical, paving the way for him. 

Following the Jupiter in Pisces preview from May 13 to July 28, 2021 Jupiter back in Aquarius continues to bring exceptional opportunities, especially for Aquarians through Dec 28! The sign lucky Jupiter is in, is the sign that succeeds and prospers! Saturn’s previous entry into Aquarius virtually shut down the airlines; Jupiter has revived them given certain conditions! Airlines, electronics, communications, organizations for sustainable change will flourish at new levels. Many patents will be filed, robotics, flying cars included. Jupiter in Aquarius! 

Adventurous Jupiter loves unstable ground, relishes making all the quick clever adjustments! Both Jupiter and Aquarius live for freedom! Since Saturn previewed Aquarius Mar 21 to July 1 2020, he is experienced and can handle the boisterous Jupiter Aquarius frolicking. He already knows there are lucky genius ideas afoot sometimes disguised as if there are no cares in the world! He sees it is that very freedom that makes them possible! He is able to tap the connections, make astute changes quickly, grab them while they are available ~ any moment Jupiter could run off to anywhere! The changes can enhance his business immeasurably! Jupiter’s current sign is where the good fortune is! Be ready to shift certain investments, adjust projects to include new, additional goals, especially those oriented to humanistic and planetary wellbeing. Aquarius will be delighted because as a researcher/thinker he doesn’t always get out to play, and Jupiter plays big. Jupiter even ups the amps on Aquarius’s own far thinking, and that is a rare thing to happen! Isn’t life grand?! Saturn may find himself on safari with Jupiter, or gone on the wind taking the computers to the surf zone when the surf’s up, whichever continent that may be on! Working from ‘home’ takes on new meaning! Really! Can be done!

Jupiter in Aquarius is like lightning! Things will happen quickly. This will be one of those periods when time itself seems speeded up! Jupiter in AQ knows the importance of immediate networking planet wide and how short a year’s window can be. Saturn has already been laying the groundwork. The possible collaboration of this team can have outstanding results much sooner than expected. 

Jupiter sped through Aquarius in record time, entered PISCES May 13 2021! It gave us a very brief preview, retrograded at 2 Pisces June 20! Magic happens! Jupiter travels the world, while Pisces travels the Spirit! Jupiter is a fiery planet so it may take a little getting used to Neptune’s Pisces damp waters. Yet, Jupiter loves speed sports, surfing, sailing, jet skiing, anywhere, the bigger the waves the better! Just be careful of tsunamis and floods! Jupiter philosophizes, tries to be just, to plan the best big future. Pisces talks with God, is psychic to the furthest realms, compassion his ruler. Jupiter may be harshly opinionated and Pisces can be an unable lost addict. Jupiter can be unkind; Pisces can be in denial, beyond caring. The other side of Jupiter is generous, can give hope, teach others to have faith beyond measure. He can help Pisces face the truth, Pisces knows he is lovingly regarded no matter what. Against the odds, recovery can happen. This can be one person in his own struggle or you working your piece for the world. Pisces gives Jupiter a dream, a vision of what can be, how miraculous recovery can be, what enormous strength and courage it takes. Even Jupiter is humbled…and grateful.

As Jupiter in Aquarius is super lucky for Aquarians, it is out of this world in Pisces for Pisceans! Jupiter cheers them up, expands their already magical dimensions, gives them further faith and awareness, heals their spirits from addictions and fears. Major tours are possible and successful dreams come true! It’s time to push the river a bit while the Gateway is open!

Jupiter returns to Aquarius July 28 until Dec 28 when he re-enters Pisces to stay. The Aquarian and Piscean talents will be commingled! The Path between them becomes a usable channel. Hopefully groups of crusaders will learn how to work together in current times, accomplish great deeds. Knowledge for all through the internet will keep us immediately informed, focused on task, adjusting priorities quickly! Jupiter traverses only part of one more sign, ARIES, the first sign of the zodiac! When Pluto enters Aquarius Jupiter will be at 17° Aries in a FIVE planet Aries stellium! Aries is the Action sign! That’s what I call a new beginning! 

Starting with the sign changes, in 2021 there are 13 aspects formed in Aquarius and Aquarius’s planet Uranus will be aspected 5 times! The first 4 of those 5 will be challenges, finding the existing weaknesses/blockages, remedying what needs adjusting, getting a flow going. The last one will be a positive aspect, an exciting finale of all those aspects, Feb 17, 2022 when Jupiter in Pisces sextiles Uranus, the AQ planet! 2021 alone will host 16 Aquarian type aspects! Then we wait, let things mingle, brew, progress, prepare, until Pluto makes that stupendous sign change into Aquarius Mar 23, 2023! We need Aquarius to be strong, in working order, integrated and grounded among ourselves, in our communities, internationally. 

We need to strengthen our Aquarian young people, our future leaders, and all Aquarians! Pluto is tough on the sign it is in and at the same time empowers them! Growing pains take strength. Take time to listen, cheer them on. Admire their broad scope, how they get teams going, their care for humanity and our planet, their inventions and science. Help them know how to carry on even when they are not appreciated. They are so intelligent, ahead of their time, that not everyone will understand their work, yet the work needs doing.

The preparation for Pluto entering Aquarius will take steady and dedicated work, staying focused. Everything about how groups and friendships work, the importance and techniques of research, how change is brought about successfully, are the goals. The foundation needs to be set. It will be explored, tested and trialed by Saturn and Jupiter entering Aquarius. 

Pluto in Aquarius will bring a new time. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and Pluto/Aquarius are not exactly ‘compatible.’ Pluto has a ton of charisma, yet is as much private as Aquarius can’t help but bring attention by his simple presence. AQ is exotic, super intelligent, often revels in neon colors, odd/unique looks and attire, has electric static. He can get attention for being THE archetypal loner, or the brilliant head of a world humanitarian organization. Pluto is going to have some adjusting to do. He may be concerned for loss of privacy, be a bit jealous too. At the very worst, there could be power struggles for world rule, including genocide. Or they will do fundraising like never seen before! Pluto may gather the world’s top wealthy humanitarians and make governments of countries look small in comparison. Since these groups will have no governmental constraints, they may bring the world together when governments couldn’t. By comparison, the financially unsupported United Nations may become passé, or it’s possible its structure already in place may be revitalized! Comprehensive large scale inventor/researcher work could do very well to sustain and amplify their efforts.

Pluto will be in Aquarius 21 years, until January 2044! All the upcoming Aquarian flavored aspects will give us a head start. We’ll do Pluto in Aquarius better! Pluto was last in Aquarius 248 years ago, 1777 to 1799, a 22 year period of worldwide uproar and change – American revolution, the French revolution, the Industrial revolution in England. And it won’t be any different this time! Guarantee! So get your friends and alliances/networks in working order, stand up, get used to acting progressively, and be ready to roll! Some will mightily resist; others will persist with new ideas. Change will beget change. Take a peek at what Patrick Watson has to say on Pluto per sign historically. Check out what Lynn Hayes has to say about what Dylan Love has to say on transhumanism

Since that last 248 years ago we now have bombs, climate change, electronic communication, robotics, and a helluva a lot more people on the planet. Water and weather wars are possible. Actually, water wars are already starting – pollution prevention, Detroit, Standing Rock. We need to reassess our mandates for leadership – age and both physical and mental health. There are going to be some bumps. Some say, after the kinks are worked out, there will be a ‘Golden Age!’ Make it so. …or would that be really boring, LOL?! Evolution never quits.

Young people born around 2003 will be about 20 in March 2023 and from 20 until they are 41, will live this period. Their lives will be about this world changing time. Help them now. Prepare them to be strong and steady leaders then. Strengthen everything Aquarius in your life.

2021 Jupiter and Saturn activate Chiron and Uranus. 

Jupiter initiated connections with Chiron and Uranus. They were just once each, Jan 11 Jupiter in AQ sextile Chiron, Jan 17 square AQ’s planet Uranus. Jupiter is first considering purpose, plans, perspective. Saturn carries these planetary connections to Chiron and Uranus throughout 2021. Feb 9 Saturn in AQ started the sextile Chiron in Aries series, then Feb 17 squared AQ’s planet Uranus in Taurus the first time! Saturn will make these aspects three times each. If Jupiter hit the nail on the head, Saturn will anchor it to build on further. Chiron the healer/teacher in Aries, the Leader, is called on first to guide the way. Then Uranus is challenged. Friendships and alliances will shift due to new needs. It will be a time of weeding the weak, not fully capable or dedicated. At first there may be a seeming standstill as decisions are made, but the situation is brewing just the same. Initially there can be some false starts, mistakes, trial and error needed in this new territory, but things will get sorted out. We’re working with new materials, new energies, new parameters with the virus, new people, new locations, and everyone is adjusting. Saturn makes the last square to Uranus Dec 23, 2021.

 The most exciting aspect of 2021 is Jupiter sextile the Galactic Center three times! Earth Day April 22, Aug 20 and Dec 12 – Twelve Twelve! Jupiter will consult with the gods and goddesses of the heavens! The GC is the center of our Galaxy, the Milky Way. Jupiter, the far traveler, has no problem with such a journey, especially while in Aquarius, the very sign of the heavens, stars and flight! Jupiter is associated with Sagittarius, the home of the GC! Perfect combination, and how apropos to the Aquarian emphasis at this time! Jupiter will be our emissary, a generally broad minded planet with a huge perspective, a gift to discover possibilities of the future! The GC will not fail to transmit, infuse, present magnificent infinite consciousness stirring insights and instruction. We have three chances to take it in, grow with it. The Galactic Center is at 27 Sagittarius 09. If you have factors in your chart that match up within 5 degrees of that 27th degree, you will be called. Unlike with fixed stars, only 1 degree usually allowed, the Galactic Center is HUGE! If you are involved with meditation, circles, consciousness raising groups, if ever there was a time to tune in, it is NOW!

Paul O. Hewit writes: “it is probably the second strongest spot in any astrology chart, following the Sun. It is a stunning source of energy, motivation, and aspiration. The Galactic Center is the Sun of our Sun. It is the source of most of the gravitational energy present in our galaxy, and probably the source of most of the energy in any chart, transformed through our own Sun.” [Some say the GC IS the strongest factor in our charts!] It moves only a degree every 72 years, so you can easily get the degree it was when you were born. Have your astrologer calculate its exact position for you.
 
Planetary Aspect Portals Crater Lake Circular Rainbow
 
Portals are all around us. Some are temporary, some are always there. Some are annual like the August 8 Lion’s Gate. No two are alike, take us different places. Some are one way, others are two way but perhaps only at certain intervals – you have to be there or… Some lifetimes there are none, others have several passages. And there are the portals into and out of life.

 

2022’s Three Aspects, planetary portals, the only 2022 Aspects and they only happen once each!

All three of 2022’s aspects are done by May 3, in just over 4 months! All will be formed while Jupiter is in Pisces. The rest of the year will be putting our discoveries into practice, improving, holding and maintaining good ground gained. Jupiter in Pisces and Aries will show us the endings and dreams of Pisces as the last sign of the Zodiac, and the beginnings Aries will work for. It will be good to rest and relax, then stretch our physical and spiritual muscles and take action! 

Feb 17 Jupiter in Pisces sextile Uranus in Taurus Once

This is the last of the Aquarius/Uranus aspects that prevailed from Dec 2020, throughout 2021! Time for celebration and pledges to the future!

Two fast planets in differently tempoed signs Pisces and Taurus. Jupiter loves races and often has the long legs to win! Uranus is the genius with the greased lightning mind! Pisces has an adjustable speed potential, like a fast swimmer, the speedboat or yacht race, but is also the meditator like the Buddha that sat by the road for years…enjoys the silence at the ashram, or the roar of a rock concert! Lots of dimensional ability. Taurus has no intention of rushing about. He has his own steady pace, enjoys sitting peaceably. He’s not lured into undignified behavior.

Jupiter and Uranus’s works are cut out for them. They will speed up the others. They also learn that sitters and plodders are getting quite a bit done with a lot less external energy being shown. They just do it. Pisces finds the shortest route and uses psychic ability to do it. Taurus is sensible and doesn’t worry. He sits with it and the plan forms with his patience. It’s uncanny. They both come up with solutions that are off the books. They think for themselves. At times the fast planets lose themselves in the fray and have to stop, come to their senses, recenter, restart where it all went awry. Sometimes needs require a faster tempo. At those times let the speedy planets guide you. They do have our well being in mind and often make ‘accidental’ discoveries! Pass the baton back and forth!

 April 12  166 Year Event! Jupiter conjunct Neptune in his own sign Pisces Once

Jupiter Conjunct Neptune reads the same as Jupiter in Pisces only more so! Pisces is Neptune’s sign and Neptune is currently IN Pisces, his own sign! Jupiter right there with Neptune most certainly ups the amps very specifically! Jupiter with Neptune comes by only every 13 years, but when Neptune is potently in Pisces, Neptune’s own sign, only every 166 years! The last time Jupiter was with Neptune in Pisces was May 17 1856! Freud, George Bernard Shaw, Tesla and Woodrow Wilson, all Chinese year of the Dragon, were born in 1856. 

This is the big event while Jupiter is in Pisces and of 2022! In fact, this is a rather special conjunction. Robert P. Blaschke says ‘2009 has also brought the alignment of Jupiter and Neptune in the sign of Aquarius. [2022 it’s in Pisces, the next sign.] Conjunctions of these two planets take place at 13-year intervals and every thirteenth conjunction recurs at nearly the same Zodiacal position. Neptune’s sidereal cycle averages 165 years and the Jupiter-Neptune conjunctions divide the Neptune cycle into 13 sub-periods (13 x 13 = 169).’ 

Blaschke further writes, ‘As Neptune moves from one sign to the next, eleven out of twelve times it meets Jupiter only once while transiting a sign. Dane Rudhyar and Alexander Ruperti both wrote that the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction is the high-point of Neptune’s stay in any given sign.See more about what Blaschke writes

Neptune, Pisces, work with spiritual matters, soul saving, dire conditions of suffering. It might be saving children in sweat shops, cruel conditions for inmates or mental patients, needed health reforms. Jupiter is the ethical planet that wants justice and has no fear of legal necessities, may be the Judge. Knowing this in advance gives us all a heads up that we are coming to a prime time to work in behalf of merciful repairs. Take courage. If you can’t do it yourself, find and fund a proven champion to work in your behalf. Please.  

Alexander Ruperti says ‘The number 13 refers to the Christ principle and as such is the symbol of the power to overcome death and limitations on all planes … Therefore, in essence, the Jupiter-Neptune cycle gives mankind a basic rhythm of and describes its urge toward transcendence.’ 13 is considered by some to represent a Gateway of the Soul. See more about this 166 year event!

In our daily affairs, Jupiter may exaggerate with no hope for reason, LOL! Pisces is perfectly happy with this, his magical side is cheering him on, it’s an exciting yarn! Pisces has dreams and Jupiter sees no reason why they can’t come true! The two of them can be utterly mischievous together! Jupiter can sometimes get all ethical and abhors addictions that disable. He looks for ways to help his mates stand clean again, to be strong for their futures, to make the world a better place. Your intuition may surge to overwhelming dimensions, you have never had visions like this before! Thank goodness the conjunction is between the Sun and Saturn in good aspect. Sun Lights the way and Saturn will help anchor the events and build what’s needed.   

May 3 Jupiter in Pisces sextile Pluto in Capricorn Once

The one with the answers walks among us. Some are invisible, some seem ordinary, others really are simply easily sneaky. This can be a super wealth aspect, it just comes upon us though Pisces doesn’t always care about money at all. It can be a cure for old age ailments. Just do what you love and profound healings occur. Time for dreams to become true through laws ala the Right of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. An obscure place or peoples, maybe an indigenous group, become especially important. An extinct animal may reappear or come from frozen wastelands. Maybe you will find the work of your soul! There are many extreme, extremely valuable possibilities that could come with this combination. Pay attention; look below the surface… Be careful not to put your hands or feet where you can’t see… Being lost may be the invitation to a new life. Get the keys to the locks and cross the threshold…

2022 Sign Changes

The only planet changing signs is Jupiter. He previewed Pisces briefly from May 13 to July 28 2021. He returns to Pisces December 28, 2021. In 2022 Jupiter speeds completely through Pisces into Aries in only 5 months, on May 10, after his sextile with Pluto, the last 2022 outer planet to planet aspect! Late 2022 Jupiter retrogrades back into Pisces Oct 27 to Dec 20, a last chance affair, then its onward in Aries, the sign of new beginnings, no going back! The next day is Winter Solstice, the belly of winter. From there are the seeds of new beginnings, the ‘return of the Light!’ See more Jupiter in Pisces

It’s one thing to make your vows in Pisces, another to take action in Aries! Pisces is what you believe in. Some say ‘Do not ask God to guide your footsteps if you are not willing to move your feet.’ The last sign, Pisces carries the Dream of all the signs. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, the first responders. Initiation means more than taking a title. It means doing your vows. Aries are brave leaders, risk takers, rights fighters. They often have to make instant decisions to save lives. They are fiery Spirits that operate on instant instinct. Consulting is one of their best talents. Listen keenly. Ask your questions right now while they are there with you. They will be gone to the next fire quickly. Staying physically fit is essential and can be totally enjoyable. Prowess feels super! Independence is strong. Ride your bike!

Jupiter is looking for purpose with integrity! It takes a core truth and educates as many as will listen to why it is meaningful and worthy. Jupiter has a bold and confident way, expands, embellishes, emphasizes, gives extra! It’s edifying, LOL! Jupiter likes to play and tell whopper stories, have a great big dog and ride the winning horse! In Aries a lot of ground will be traveled, and quickly too! Speed is a delight. Records will be broken! Skating, surfing, skiing! Wow!   

The Galactic Center, Algol and Pluto!

All three of these are dark characters! The GC is a gigantic black hole! Algol has a dark reputation, ie beheadings, when your lights go out. Pluto is the furthest planet from the Sun, the darkest and frozen to boot!

Fixed star ALGOL and the GC are in lockstep! Each being star factors, they each take 72 years to move a degree. Currently Algol is at 26 Taurus and the GC is 27 Sag. Whenever one is activated, so is the other. Algol and the GC have an oblique off center position (inconjunct), aware, but out of the corner of your eye. That position is common in the charts of psychics. They see peripheral factors that influence the outcome. Inconjuncts sometimes lead you on a goose chase, but maybe to greener pastures. You do get a greater perspective. Even if you go back home, you are different. You have perhaps made new friends and associates that can carry that sector for you. Excellent adjustments are in the offing. Destination Algol would not usually be a conscious choice, but sometimes it is part of our Path and it just happens. Square your shoulders and do it, eyes wide open. Fascinating encounter.

Algol is the baddest Star according to some! It is a rare triple star and eclipsing binary, which means it blinks, and changes brightness, even ‘disappears!’ It is the Medusa’s Head, carried in the left hand of the Hero, Perseus. On the dark side, ‘It causes misfortune, violence, decapitation, hanging, electrocution and mob violence, and gives a dogged and violent nature that causes death to the native or others. It is the most evil star in the heavens.’ Some say it’s not the ‘bad’ within us but pushing through blockages to the beauty beyond is what really matters. We can face our demons with sincere intent and life changes for the better! See more!  See more about the spiritual side…

Algol’s bad rep, strikes fear in a lot of hearts, but so does the Galactic Center when people find out it is one gigantic black hole!!! You could vanish in an instant! You astral travelers might should be careful? I like to think of Algol as the GC’s Guardian. Algol is considered to be a super powerful feminine force. It would take such an entity to protect the mighty GC! Their off center relationship may take you on the road less followed, so to speak. There is a draw to explore. Algol is ready to stomp her feet and ‘invite’ you to travel, or takes you another place once the GC’s info has been bestowed, a place that needs the information the most. 

Many give Algol a wide berth, plan wisely astrologically. Astrologers often allow 5 degrees for the effective range with Algol while most stars get only 1 degree range. If in neighboring signs, only 3 or less degrees might be used. If you have chart factors in that 5 degree range, one way or another you are connected with Algol. If you have questions, do see your astrologer.

Pluto is now at 24 Capricorn and moves only 3° a year. Pluto retrogrades back and forth through the degrees as it travels Capricorn. Anytime it is between 23 Cap 27 to 29 Cap 27, it will trine Algol. That period started Feb 2020, virus time, and will go through Jan 2024. It is now continuously trine Algol. Exact trines are formed 5 times: on Spring Equinox Mar 20, & June 5, 2021, and in 2022 Jan 17, 2022, Aug 29, Nov 16. 

Pluto has been having the Algol experience, and is one of the few who can stand up under this trial. Very luckily, the trine is the most favorable angle, so though not unscathed, he survives. Both Pluto and Algol are respected and incur life and death situations. One hopes the trine bends the relationship with Algol to a more satisfactory outcome. Earth signs, like Capricorn, especially being the last Earth sign, are a bit ‘indelible.’ Their effects are more long lasting. Keep turning the tables on Algol’s bad rep. Stay calm in the face of violence, even your own anger. Shift your connections so better can happen. Know your rights and choose safety unless/even if you are trying to save someone’s life. If you are the offender, get all the help you can to change. Many a fine leader has come from a dark place.

Those of you with your Saturn’s from 6 to 25 Aquarius will be having your 28/9 year Saturn Returns in Libra’s year! 

Lunar patterns! For Full Moons the 27th degree (degree of Algol/GC/Pluto) will be activated 8 times Sep 2021 to April 2022. Fixed stars Polaris – the North StarBetelgeuse in Orion are at 28 Gemini, and Procyon 25 Cn 47 will give varying additional effects per their type of connections with those signs. Those of you with factors close to 12 degrees in your charts will be activated by 7 New Moons from Oct 2021 to March 2022. Jan and March 2022 will have two New Moons in Pacific time zone. If you have factors at or within 3 degrees of both 12 and 27, all those New and Full Moons will activate you in sequence through the signs! Set a goal and approach it progressively from every angle, every sign!    

May your heart be filled with beauty every moment!

Happy Birthdays, Dear Libras!

Libra 2021 Reteti Elephant Sanctuary Kenya Naomi sings to orphan

Naomi, a senior elephant keeper, sings to one of the older orphan calves at the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary in Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy, in central Kenya, on February 26, 2020. The community-owned elephant sanctuary gives care to abandoned or orphaned elephant calves and conditions them for release back to the wild as they approach four years of age. The sanctuary also benefits the local Samburu people who live alongside the animals and who are seen as an expanding community-driven grassroots conservation movement in northern Kenya. Samburu Warriors who once feared elephants now protect them. Photo by Tony Karumba / AFP / Getty at The Atlantic – stunning photos in honor of World Elephant Day August 20.

Libra New Moon!

Wednesday October 6, 13 Libra 25, New Moon at 4:05 AM Pacific!

13 is the Magic Number! Right away unique changes are afoot! Seek very special people!

Starry African night sky over swamp, Okavango Delta, Botswana, Limpopo, South Africa. Botswana is a Libra Country. Study Abroad in Botswana, UCEAP University of California Education Abroad Program

We could call this a bowl or locomotive chart pattern, but with that strong FOUR planet stellium in Libra, the New Moon the SAME degree as martial Mars, it has less locomotive spread and push, instead, a lot more instant punch! Venus is in Scorpio admiring the potential, has her own hidden talents! Mars is up front, Scorpio is the ninja, and Venus is so nice you never know what happened and find yourself thanking her! Venus has super importance because she is Libra’s ruler! All the inner planets are on one side, the outer planets on the other. Though only one strong opposition, it involves the New Moon and Mars to Chiron in Aries, the Mars sign! Since Libra IS the sign of oppositions, I’m dubbing it a Seesaw chart pattern. Seesaws seek balance, just like Libra! 

In spite of Libra being an interpersonal sign, in a way we could say this is a more personal chart since all the inner planets are together in only 2 signs. Mars is so independent, he is not a usually very concerned for the others, but he does take things quite personally and quickly! Nevertheless, he just does what he does, and that even in Libra too. But in Libra he may be fighting for your rights, seeking justice for all! He may find more success by being more aware of the people around him, keeping the team informed. He may prosper due to their ideas and united efforts.

And of all planets, to be with him, Mother Moon at the same degree?!! Mars was born to be independent of his family, especially Mom! Not only is Moon there, but Father Sun as well. Groan. Sometimes young Mars (Aries) literally fights it out with a domineering father. Libra fights can be subtle. An outsider might not catch it. They can ignore each other, speak nicely but with an insider implied threat or put down, play one against another. Or they are all feisty and there’s no guessing at all! When they work together, Mars may have to restrain himself. He’s older now, or these are not his parents but remind him of them. Each can be admiring, glad for the others contributions.

Mercury retrograde is with them, out front, yet returning (Rx) to give them information he found, sometimes cajoling them to stay on point, focus on doing the mission. Yesterday, Oct 5, he was inconjunct, off to the side from opposite Neptune in Pisces, moving back away. So different. Pisces is water; Libra is air. Yet on a misty day, in the clouds, or the spray of waves, there is an exchange of ions that refresh our spirits and our brains! Neptune has the 6th sense of the most important needs. Neptune rules the oceans, the great Mystical Drift of Souls. Significant change will lift Spirits. Fears, Depression and Grief will lift as we each do our part to balance our systems. Mercury is quite intellectually gifted in Libra to find connections that are life changing, both in our environment and among the People. Differences become assets, and Neptune psychically sees how mergers and unity of cause will give blessing beyond what was thought possible. See Neptune in Pisces Mercury will return to this inconjunct the third and last time Oct 30. See Libra Mercury Retrograde

Oct 3 Mercury retrograde trined Jupiter in Aquarius! Super strange and fabulous ideas tingled his fingertips! Jupiter is lucky, thinks big, and AQ is pure genius, right up Mercury in Libra’s ally! He is going back, Rx, to share the news and let the Libra’s do their magic! They can transform dross to gold! Swear! Conversion is one of their talents. They can reposition it, repurpose, dress it up, use it in remarkable ways. You see, Mercury Rx in Libra can see backwards! He sees both sides and a few others too! He knows a lot of people, and has banks of information in his mind that he can pull forward at will! It’s pure genius of its own kind! He and those Libras can do things no others can! Jupiter is a seer, see-er, and plans a righteous future. Aquarius is commonly ahead of its time. Mercury in Libra can take something ahead of it’s time and put it right here on the tabe now as if that is the most ordinary thing and why didn’t we think of that sooner?! Isn’t integration terrific?

This Libra Stellium is a super powerful combination to stir the public, unite groups, make political change! 

The 13 degree three, Moon, Sun and Mars – Mother, Father, and Son, have passed Chiron in Aries, Mars’ sign! Chiron has affinity with Mars, so may have spoken with him the most or made quite an impression on Mars. Chiron has passionate ideas for healing quickly in today’s world, goes a lot by instant instinct. One of the foibles of Libra, that they are teased about, is not being able to make up their minds. They see everyone’s side and why it’s important to them, doesn’t want to hurt anyone. What to do?! Aries has no such problem and says let’s get on with things! If we do it wrong we’ll fix it. Of course that is not always a wise choice, but it kicks a stalemate in the behind! If someone is dying or there is a deadline, move it! Go for the long term priority related option!

The 13 Three are inconjunct, askew with Uranus at 13 Taurus! Taurus is the first Venus sign, Libra the second! Taurus is patient; Uranus, the Aquarian planet, has greased lightning genius intelligence and Libra is known for intelligence on their feet, like in courtroom strategies! Taurus, ruler of Mother Earth, supports and grounds Uranus; Uranus has solutions for Earth changes and musters groups of experts to roll out the latest remediation techniques. It’s hard to just sit still in the presence of Uranus. There is an electricity that sizzles even when they are sleeping! Moon for sure senses this active valence. Sun is curious, in Libra, knows there is value there, but is careful because there is an unpredictability. Mars can’t wait to play! Fascinating character, and may want to push to see what happens. He figures he’s quick enough on his feet to dance out of the way, even lead a chase! For fact, it will lead to new somethings, and Mars and Uranus both love new! 

Venus in Scorpio is like a magnet! She can be sexy, belly-dancer seductive, charismatic, have grace beyond words! Libra likes to keep things clean and have propriety, so Venus may be somewhat on her own, a little much for them. She may have a rebellious get-even streak in her, but find herself noticing how they have a charm and grace of their own, provocative intentions! She may decide to help them. They will both influence each other since she is Libra’s planet! Venus in Scorpio knows instinctively how to talk with the corporate world, has her own form of social and negotiative martial arts. And everyone better move on this right now because tomorrow early AM she will exit into Sagittarius! 

Fixed Stars Algorab 13 Libra, Sirius 14 Cancer!!! I imagine few of you have done much work with or even heard of Algorab! It is on the right wing of the Raven, in the constellation Corvus, the Crow. TODAY is the very day annually that Sun, and in this case also the Moon, conjunct Algorab! If you love the intelligent Corvids this may bode well for you, if not, all the nasties you hear of them may be part of the Truth.

  • In the US their rep is not so good. Astrologer Jamie Partridge summarises: Algorab is one of the 15 magic related Behenian Fixed Stars. Its image is a raven, snake or negro dressed in black. It makes the wearer angry, bold, courageous and a backbiter, gives bad dreams, the power of summoning or driving away evil spirits and protection from winds and the malice of men and devils. – Whew! That’s impressive!
  • He also states the 28th Chinese Xiù – 軫 (Zhěn) Chariot thinks:  This is the celestial Carriage and it represents the transport of tributes from foreign lands to the Emperor, thus the accumulation of wealth. It also presides over travel of all kinds and vehicles. It also presaged favorable winds and an end to storms. Events in business bring great profit and everything done heralds fortunate returns. Paying homage to ancestors will honor one with a “Dragon Child”. It is also a great day for marriages and births. – Quite different!
  • But some modern astrologers concur that it shows up in terrorism events! See the details at Astrology King, Jamie’s site! Don’t ‘terrorize’ yourself or provoke others; help others and yourself to be safe. Be aware of triggers and danger signals and leave; talk later if possible. Use your intelligence in a good way.
  • Algorab and the New Moon square the potent, brightest star of the night, Sirius! Sirius enjoys a terrific reputation for the most part, but also called the Dog Star, watch out for dog bites, LOL! It is another of the 15 Behenian stars. See a lot more at Astrology King! If you square off the Raven and the Dog, it sounds like witches and warlock companions having a fight! Either there are power struggles, in the old sense good versus evil, but also they may serve their mistress and master well, each in their own way – symbolically one in the sky seeing far ahead, the other on the ground sensing if there is imminent danger. If there are two different masters, it may be a war, but with the clever Raven in Libra, they could collaborate for common cause.

All six of the outer planets (including Chiron in the tally) are retrograde now, today being the last day! The New Moon is 4:05 AM Pacific; outer planet Pluto goes direct 11:29 AM Pacific. He has been in Station, what appears to be a stand still position in the sky, at 24 Capricorn 19 from Oct 1 to  and will be until Oct 12! That’s at the same MINUTE, not degree. During the outer planets’ mutual retrograde since August 19, they have all been mulling over our progress, reprocessing current conditions, updating and strengthening for further changes. 

Pluto in Capricorn and Saturn in Aquarius stand alone in this chart involved in no active planetary aspects. They are focusing on their own matters, readying. They are observing, waiting, developing poise.  

Many 2021 factors have an Aquarian component, including this New Moon being precisely in the same degree as the Aquarian planet Uranus! We are preparing for Pluto’s entry into Aquarius in 2023. We are more aware now that some connections need reworking, fixing, updating. Some ideas have long term implications worth working for, are financially productive, spiritually satisfying! Make notes then network like crazy to get more ideas to complete the package, select who will work together, and get it rolling! See Saturn in Aquarius Saturn is open to new areas of responsibility. Chiron is livening us with the latest healing and teaching ideas! Jupiter is back in Aquarius jazzing up Saturn’s prospects!

Pluto Trine Fixed Star Algol 26 Taurus 27 in 2020 – 2024

Pluto is of Scorpio, the sign opposite Algol’s sign Taurus, but Pluto now in Capricorn gentles that opposition because Pluto Capricorn trines, favors Algol. Pluto rules death and rebirth while Algol is considered to bear misfortune, often death. They understand each other. Neither is to be messed with. Capricorn is noted for facing reality squarely. 

Algol is the baddest Star according to some! It is a rare triple star and eclipsing binary, which means it blinks, and changes brightness, even ‘disappears!’ It is the Medusa’s Head, carried in the left hand of the Hero, Perseus. On the dark side, ‘It causes misfortune, violence, decapitation, hanging, electrocution and mob violence, and gives a dogged and violent nature that causes death to the native or others. It is the most evil star in the heavens.’ Some say it’s not the ‘bad’ within us but pushing through blockages to the beauty beyond is what really matters. We can face our demons with sincere intent and life changes for the better! See more!

Many give Algol a wide berth, plan wisely astrologically. Astrologers often allow 5 degrees for the effective range with Algol while most stars get only 1 degree range. If you have chart factors in that 5 degree range, one way or another you are connected with Algol. If you have questions, do see your astrologer.

Pluto is now at 24° Capricorn and moves only 3° a year. Pluto retrogrades back and forth through the degrees as it travels Capricorn. Allowing a 3 degree range, anytime Pluto is between 23 Cap 27 to 29 Cap 27, it will trine Algol at 26 Taurus 27. That period started Feb 2020 – virus time, and will go through Jan 2024. It is now continuously trine Algol. Exact trines are formed 5 times: on Spring Equinox Mar 20, & June 5, 2021, and in 2022 Jan 17, 2022, Aug 29, Nov 16.

One hopes the trine, a good aspect, bends the relationship with Algol to a more satisfactory outcome. Earth signs are a bit ‘indelible.’ Their effects are more long lasting. Keep turning the tables on Algol’s bad rep. Recent violence, covid deaths, may leave raw feelings of grief, bitterness, betrayal. Freedom is still at issue. Stay calm in the face of violence, shift your connections so better can happen, turn a page, try out some new possibilities. Know your rights and choose safety unless/even if you are trying to save someone’s life. If you are the offender, get all the help you can to change. Many a fine leader has come from a dark place.

Pluto understands much of this. Capricorn often has working answers to bring us back together in common cause. Be safe and be well. Tread gently. Get all the facts before you pass judgment. Steady in the Light.  

Algol’s connection with the Galactic Center!

Algol and the GC are in lockstep! Each being star factors, they each take 72 years to move a degree. Currently Algol is at 26 Taurus and the GC is 27 Sag. Whenever one is activated, they both are. Algol and the GC have an oblique position (inconjunct), aware, but out of the corner of your eye. That position is common in the charts of psychics. They see peripheral factors that influence the outcome. Inconjuncts sometimes lead you on a goose chase, but maybe to greener pastures. You do get a greater perspective. Even if you go back home, you are different. You have perhaps made new friends and associates that can carry that sector for you, or be a link to that sector when you need it. Excellent adjustments are in the offing. Destination Algol would not usually be a conscious choice, but sometimes it is part of our Path and it just happens. Square your shoulders and do it, eyes wide open. Fascinating encounter.

Oh, yes, Algol strikes fear in a lot of hearts, but so does the GC when people find out it is one gigantic black hole!!! You could vanish in an instant! You astral travelers might should be careful? I like to think of Algol as the GC’s Guardian. Algol is considered to be a super powerful feminine force. It would take such an entity to protect the mighty GC! Algol is ready to stomp her feet and ‘invite’ you to travel, or takes you another place once the GC’s info has been bestowed, a place that needs the information the most.

Pluto rules Libra’s neighboring sign Scorpio. Libra is light, Scorpio is dark. Libra understands opposites, complements. Pluto is in Capricorn a challenging square sign to Libra. They both want certain proprieties but Libra can be nervous of Capricorn’s demands, at worst quashed. Libra loves the arts; Capricorn is more practical. Cap can help Libra get up into business, while Libra can help him polish his manners and make his products more attractive. Algol is in Taurus, the first Venus sign, a sensual touch loving earthy beauty sign! Libra, an air sign, may love perfumes and dance, but more sophisticated styles. The Galactic Center is in fiery Sagittarius, enjoying lots of laughs and adventure stories, is not on anyone’s schedule! Libra generally prefers a more gentile pace, more quiet conversation over tea, and formal by invitation or appointment meetings, tête-à-têtes. Libra will find themselves being pressed to use their negotiating skills – tact and diplomacy, and loosening up in spite of themselves! They will be blessed with more freedom! 

On a fine New Moon night, things are blended, no Moonlight or shadows. There is a certain equality as the playing field is equalized. It seems more quiet, even subdued, without the contrasts and sharp edges. Sleep can be deeper. Even if there is a breeze, there are no moving shadows… 

Power up your engines, seek intelligent changes and very special people!

Aries/Libra Full Hunter’s Moon! 


Wednesday October 20, 27 Aries/Libra 26, at 7:57 AM Pacific!


Let beauty surround you while you are making a difference!

Libra 2021 Hunters Moon New Suffolk Wendy Zuhoski

Reader Wendy Zuhoski, who often sends us photos from her early morning walks along the water in New Suffolk, captured this year’s Hunter’s Moon early Saturday morning. NORTHFORKER on OCTOBER 20th, 2013

In the old days, not so long ago, hunting was serious business for stocking winter food. These days you may be searching the internet, looking for the love of your life, seeking the perfect work, stalking beauty with your camera, be looking for ‘God.’ Hunting requires many skills and is different per hunter, what you are seeking, and times change the methods. An Aries Moon is a bold hunter, scares the prey into the open, hunts bigger and faster game. Speed may be crucial. Libra Sun wants it to be an honorable hunt, respect for the prey, a fair chance given, impeccable techniques, no cruelty. Plant lovers want no crushed plants or trampled endangered species, or stolen plants. Animal lovers want no harmed kittens, pups or cubs or moms. Bird lovers want undisturbed habitat, no nesting threatened. Modern hunting has a new set of ethics. We need to grant the same courtesies, care and respectful caution to each other as our hunts in life overlap each other’s. 

27 Degree Sequence for SIX months! 2021 Oct, Nov, Dec and 2022 Jan, Feb, and Mar start a ‘season’ of six Full Moons at 27 degrees Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo. Fixed stars Polaris – the North Star, Betelgeuse in Orion are at 28 Gemini, and Procyon 25 Cn 47 will give varying additional effects per their type of connections with those signs. Those of you with chart factors 26 to 29 will be engaged.  

The Full Moon chart pattern echos the New Moon, 3 planets still in Libra, but Venus has moved on into Sagittarius and Moon has reached the 180 position on the other side in Aries! Now she and Chiron are both holding the Aries position. Mercury retrograded back to degrees before the New Moon’s position. He has been in an 8 day station at 10 Libra since Oct 15, turned direct/forward Oct 18 and tomorrow, the 21st, is the last day of his 8 day station! Time to shake it and get going!

Mars is still prominent! Sun was with him Oct 7/8, the days following the New Moon, but they have been close together since. Moon is in Mars’ sign Aries, so there is a remembrance and affinity though opposite. In Aries, Moon is more frisky than usual, and in late degrees, she is excited to show off her new prowess! She conjuncted Chiron the healer/teacher the 18/19th, and Chiron also in Aries, shot her some inspiring leadership tricks she’s trying out! Sun is watching from across the wheel, excited by her speed and new talents, but also saying to himself, ‘Whoa, Woman, be careful, ok?!’ There may be a temptation to take her to the ballet class! Moon is pretty independent when she wants to be, and she’s so excited now suggestions may fall on deaf ears for the time being. Sun would like her on his team, so he will check in with her again later. They are both action signs and it is important now for them to complete making the connections that keep things going. Moon is making the last sales while Libra makes call backs, maybe offers special deals on long term purchases. Presentations in behalf of those they are helping may bring heartfelt donations that meet your deadlines. Good luck to you all and many thanks.

Mars has been pretty lucky. He trined the far out Jupiter in Aquarius just yesterday! He is fresh from the etheric zone, happily stunned, a little dizzy, thrilled to be with someone who can outdo him! He’s got ideas like never before! Moon made her sextile with Jupiter 18/19th, just after her Chiron encounter, so she is riding high as well. Write down everything they say. What seems nutty now will soon prove to have substance! 

But Mars is still to make his square with killer Pluto in Capricorn tomorrow the 21st/22nd! Sun and moon have previously made the their squares, Sun the 17th, Moon earlier, the same day as the Full Moon. They are fresh from their connections and will have current information Mars may need to do well, avoid pitfalls. The blast from Jupiter may give him just the mojo he needs to break through Pluto’s defenses! Jupiter has optimism and spectacular successes. Mars can quote these past prosperous ventures and good chance he will have Pluto’s ear. If Pluto likes what he hears, he will offer constructive sound advice, get the job done. Just be sure to have the lawyers write it up and signed. Be sure the part you are offering is named and properly valued.

At a personal level, Mars and Pluto both need to be careful. Libra is devilishly clever and can act so innocent and charming. Pluto can seem like the experienced wise master, but you sign your life away. Mars can prod, dare, and challenge, bringing ego into play, and you are not yourself anymore. Pluto can seem like the one that will save your finances from harm, save your life, be all he says he will be and you are married. He can have a great reputation and be deceitful. Both could be violent together. Oops. I would tend not to sign any papers at this time. Wait, give it plenty of time. So you might miss the boat, not make that million, but there might be a blessing in disguise, that saves you from yourself and whatever might have been. One whiff of doubt could mean it’s not for you at this time. Err on the side of caution. Take it easy, breathe. Be at peace.  

Mercury in Libra has been steeping in that 8 day station, less than one degree opposite that fast thinking Chiron who is making medical and teaching changes faster than anyone could think would ever happen. Very timely to help with the pandemic. Mercury retrograde has been sifting over recent ground, finding any errors, regrouping some ideas, better solutions are emerging. Libra is a pro at comparisons, sees when things are out of pattern, balance or likelihood. Relationships of all kinds are being juxtaposed, assessed for competency, potential success. Negotiations are proceeding out of the box!

Venus is at 14 Sagittarius, connected obliquely with Uranus the Aquarian planet yesterday! Uranus is in Taurus, Venus’s base sign. Considering our daily earthly needs is fundamental and needs a lot of changing and soon. Venus is now planning big and long term with monies collected at the New Moon. She wants to travel to get perspective, learn firsthand how others are tipping the scales. She wants to get the feel of how the leaders are succeeding or failing. She is confident she has some great advisors that can turn the tables. She invites the group to some play time together, to have a few laughs. Opening a school would speed things up, an international school would do the job. Uranus has plenty of shocking, wakeup ideas that would make on-the-ground videos really come alive!  

Saturn at 6 Aquarius 57 and Neptune retrograde at 20 Pisces 52, are not in active planetary aspects. Saturn has plenty to do on his own. He’s building a whole new planet for us! Volunteers welcome. Neptune tends to the dreams, the systems in play for miracles every minute, transcendence. Visions in films, music magic, will speak for him. Though they make no aspects, you with those degree factors in your charts will be tuned to them.

Reflect the beauty that surrounds you ~ may you meet all your challenges with honor!

2022 is a RETROGRADE YEAR! All three inner planets Mercury, Venus and Mars retrograde. Three Mercury retrogrades are two-sign retrogrades, there are 9 multiple stations – 6 at 24-26 degrees, 3 at 8 degrees, and two double retrogrades!

Potent Stelliums, groupings of planets in the same sign, or very closely one sign to another, can also happen in sign sequence! The 2022 Nine Day sequence of March 27 to April 3 is a perfect example. It’s perhaps not so important how many planets there are per sign, but the sequence!!! Three signs are emphasized, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries! The New Moon happens during the Aries stellium! The nine day period of March 26 to April 3 has the most focused bundle chart period of 2022 with all the planets within only 104 degrees! See the Newsletter for all the details!

Two Black Moons – the third of four New Moons in a quarter
  1. 2022s first Black Moon is January 31 and only in certain time zones while the second New Moon is still in January on Jan 31! It’s 9:45 PM Pacific, so in Eastern, it is 12:45 AM on Feb 1, not a Black Moon there!
  2. March/April! The second Black Moon occurs March 31 in Pacific and earlier zones! It is at 11:54 PM, 6 mins before midnight, so the three Eastern continental zones do not have a Black Moon in March. Their New Moon is on April 1! INSTEAD, they have their second New Moon of the month, Black Moon, on April 30!

See about unique planetary configurations – Bowls and Bundles, stelliums, retrogrades, eclipses, sign changes, planetary aspects events. See event charts and date lists that help make planning easier!

Stand true and steady, plan and prepare well!

Virgo 2021-22 Celestial HighLights, Timeline, Overview!

Virgo 2021 Richard Branson Virgin Galactic Team to Space!

At 71, Virgo Moon/Saturn Richard Branson, third from right, and team made it to Space July 11, 2021! His biz is Virgin Galactic!!! Jeff Bezos/Amazon was next. Elon Musk is scheduled September 15!               

August 20 Jupiter in Aquarius sextiled the Galactic Center the second time! Jupiter is the far Traveler; Aquarius is Space! More has been downloaded and Jupiter needs help documenting and organizing the sheer quantity! Leo, the Sun’s sign, hailed the Galactic Center, Star to Stars, and gave it a mighty shove out the door on its way!

At this point, Aug 22, Virgo the Weaver is picking up the threads to disperse the light rays among us! The mighty Tapestry of Light is traceable, can be followed. Virgo can update the pattern, the cross stations, repair frail spots, emphasize priorities! She is dedicated to her quadrant, makes sure we are well blanketed, protected, healthy and productive. The work she does is luminous, leads the tribe to give comfort, heal Spirits, prepares us further for our work to come. 

Her vantage point this year is astonishing. We usually think of Virgo in some cubby hole working for work’s sake, forging the finest details. In this case, she’s wearing her large flowered dress of late summer showing us the larger plan that will take us on a greater journey than ever before. Each step is meaningful and profound though we may not always realize it. Each is a crucial foundation for the next.  

Jupiter rules Sagittarius, a challenge sign ahead of Virgo. He seems, like the Centaur he is, like he is a player and partyer, takes chances, laughs and snorts like a horse! That all takes some getting used to for our sometimes quiet Virgo lady. She’s a bit prim at times and certainly doesn’t waste time, her routines are reliable. But she forgets to get fresh air sometimes. She needs to take time out and do a few crazy things now and again! Take that walk. Jupiter is back in Aquarius and he is electrified, more unpredictable than should be legal! And, he’s got smarts and is wickedly creative! Hard not to get intrigued.

Yet Virgo has the honor of carrying his Galactic encounter Light! Part of Jupiter sees her too, just as she perfectly is, and much as he laughs (that’s his invitation), he knows how important the principles are that are flowing to us at this time. We have been through a planetary encounter personally, the virus. We are collectively experiencing a planetary climate change whether we call it that or not. It is time to tune in to greater perspectives, see how we are personally involved, to think further ahead, create a Renaissance. Many of us know of the super powerful Pluto in Aquarius 21 years ahead of us starting in 2023. These are precursors and a lot is yet to come. 

Virgo will be called on not just to tell us what needs work, but she will be leading by showing us how to do it as we all learn ‘on-the-job!’ She is a systems analyst, finds the flaws and often the fixes are quicker and easier than would have ever been expected! She’s clever and practical, and comes in at the least cost! She is the Bookkeeper and has connections, LOL!

The human Virgo herself may be a frail maiden with a delicate diet. Or she may be a sturdy hiker with boots that get her there. She may bark orders, demand quality, do the work of three people in less time, be the last one to go home…every night. You have to make her take time off, because you know, no one can do it right but her, LOL! 

In the meantime, she keeps and eye on our health, is a keen Watcher. The Galactic Center did a few body scans, lighted up some new circuits. We now know some important things about ourselves and planetary needs that we didn’t know before! We have some new talents that just seemed to come from nowhere. Part of this needs to be adjusted into what we’ve already got, while part of us needs to be integrated up to accommodate what we received! Everybody has special talents no one else but them holds. Virgo can see these micro differences and estimates their potential, just how huge this gift can become. As a healer herself, she pays attention to your abilities, helps strengthen your capacity, clears blockages. She can do that without even realizing fully herself what she is doing or has done. She just wants your well being, your being a productive citizen, more than everything. 

Virgo is a natural born documentarian, whether it be that bookkeeping, family records, writing, journaling, film documentaries, the historian, the museum. She tracks our progress, the people, the characters of our leaders. These records establish our legends, the trends of our times, what our young people choose to do, spiritual inclinations. In our current times we have seen wars this last century. We had the 60s, pollution, political shenanigans, civil rights matters – women, children, sexual, racial. Animal rights, computer, cells to clones, robots and flying cars, several pandemics and healthcare development. We watch sports, romance, westerns, garden and dog shows, concerts. And the Great Mystery prevails. 

We thank you every single day, Dear Virgos, for your service, keeping us accountable.

Virgo Overview of Your Year to Come
.

Virgo 2021 Garden UK artist Mig Wyeth

Maybe this year you will grow your first garden, with all its intricacy and rewards. This kind of complexity is relaxing, no one to grade you or take away your income. You can sit and watch them grow… The Gardener, a fine art greeting card by UK artist Mig Wyeth

Virgos are always rounding up seed people, prepping fertile soil, planting ideas, watering and minding our growth, healing any problems. When the time is right, they harvest, then save seeds for the next round. Proven and accomplished speakers are invited back! 

Many 2020 and 2022 charts are Bowls, rare Bundles, and Buckets and seesaws! They are a concentrated force! The Feb 11 2021 SIX planet air sign Aquarius New Moon stellium Bundle Chart was a super example! All the planets were in a potent 113 degrees, less than a third of the wheel! See more about Bowls and Bundles If a singular planet or a pair or cluster of very close planets venture beyond these formations, a Bucket Chart is formed, emphasis on these ‘handle’ planets. If several planets loosely spaced move opposite the base group, a Seesaw Chart is formed, planetary oppositions common, balance sought. In these times when the slow moving outer planets are closely together, the base group is steady. The Bundles and Bowls alternate with the Buckets and Seesaws as ‘inner’ planets, Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus, sometimes Mars, proceed on their own out of the base group during the year. In her 27 day cycle, Moon jumps out ahead every month. Sun is on the other side 5 to 6 months of the year.

2021 is a super special AQUARIAN TIME! The February 11 SIX planets stellium Aquarian New Moon may have inaugurated a 2nd wave of the ‘Dawning of the Age of Aquarius!’ 59 Years ago in Feb 1962, the New Moon Eclipse chart had seven Aquarian planets and lasted longer. Saturn and Jupiter are in Aquarius, made the Great Conjunction Solstice Dec 21 2020! 2015 to 2024 Uranus, the planet of Aquarius, has been and is the lead outer planet. 2021 has numerous outer planet aspects in Aquarius and ones formed to Aquarius’s planet Uranus, plus, Jupiter sextiles the Galactic Center three times! These prepare us for Pluto entering Aquarius March 2023, Pluto on a 248 year cycle! 

Mind you, the Ages are long, roughly every 2,150 years. Even 100 years would be a reasonable time frame for a transition from one to another. I think we could easily include 1962 and 2020/21 events and Pluto’s sign change into Aquarius in 2023 as part of the process. Pluto takes 248 years to circuit the zodiac. FYI the ages are reversed through the signs due to the Precession of Equinoxes. The previous age was Pisces, so we are now backing into the last degrees of Aquarius.

Going back to recent planetary action, Saturn and Jupiter made the leap for freedom, went into Aquarius Dec 16 and 19, made the GREAT CONJUNCTION Winter Solstice Dec 21, 2020! As one journey ends another begins. Pluto is in its final years of being in Capricorn. Pluto holds the power of life and death, represents the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes. In our lives that can be represented by poverty, bankruptcy, turned to wealth and powerful relationships. Capricorn is the mountain goat that rises to the heights, has staying power in extreme conditions, oversees, makes the laws, is the most efficient of all the signs, a survivor due to his own talents.

To make this Capricorn facet more potent, Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, and Jupiter were with Pluto as his support team! The difficult part was the Jan 12 2020 Saturn conjunct Pluto that probably brought the Virus, and Jupiter, a traveler, that had a role in transmitting it from China to other places. Yet, Pluto will continue to make impressive progress these last few years even though Saturn and Jupiter have left him, now are in Aquarius. He may do even better because they have changed signs, leading him, wanting collaboration with the people to cure and heal, prevent more illness – and not just the virus, but working other matters as well, climate, politics. Since Pluto will be going into Aquarius March 2023, their work now is critical, paving the way for him. 

Following the Jupiter in Pisces preview from May 13 to July 28, 2021 Jupiter in Aquarius continues to bring exceptional opportunities, especially for Aquarians through Dec 28! The sign lucky Jupiter is in, is the sign that succeeds and prospers! Saturn’s previous entry into Aquarius virtually shut down the airlines; Jupiter has revived them given certain conditions! Airlines, electronics, communications, organizations for sustainable change will flourish at new levels. Many patents will be filed, robotics, flying cars included. Jupiter in Aquarius! 

Adventurous Jupiter loves unstable ground, relishes making all the quick clever adjustments! Both Jupiter and Aquarius live for freedom! Since Saturn previewed Aquarius Mar 21 to July 1 2020, he is experienced and can handle the boisterous Jupiter Aquarius frolicking. He already knows there are lucky genius ideas afoot sometimes disguised as if there are no cares in the world! He sees it is that very freedom that makes them possible! He is able to tap the connections, make astute changes quickly, grab them while they are available ~ any moment Jupiter could run off to anywhere! The changes can enhance his business immeasurably! Jupiter’s current sign is where the good fortune is! Be ready to shift certain investments, adjust projects to include new, additional goals, especially those oriented to humanistic and planetary wellbeing. Aquarius will be delighted because as a researcher/thinker he doesn’t always get out to play, and Jupiter plays big. Jupiter even ups the amps on Aquarius’s own far thinking, and that is a rare thing to happen! Isn’t life grand?! Saturn may find himself on safari with Jupiter, or gone on the wind taking the computers to the surf zone when the surf’s up, whichever continent that may be on! Working from ‘home’ takes on new meaning! Really! Can be done!

Jupiter in Aquarius is like lightning! Things will happen quickly. This will be one of those periods when time itself seems speeded up! Jupiter in AQ knows the importance of immediate networking planet wide and how short a year’s window can be. Saturn has already been laying the groundwork. The possible collaboration of this team can have outstanding results much sooner than expected. 

Jupiter speeds through Aquarius in record time, enters PISCES May 13 2021! It gives us a very brief preview, retrograded at 2 Pisces June 20! Magic happens! Jupiter travels the world, while Pisces travels the Spirit! Jupiter is a fiery planet so it may take a little getting used to Neptune’s Pisces damp waters. Yet, Jupiter loves speed sports, surfing, sailing, jet skiing, anywhere, the bigger the waves the better! Just be careful of tsunamis and floods! Jupiter philosophizes, tries to be just, to plan the best big future. Pisces talks with God, is psychic to the furthest realms, compassion his ruler. Jupiter may be harshly opinionated and Pisces can be an unable lost addict. Jupiter can be unkind; Pisces can be in denial, beyond caring. The other side of Jupiter is generous, can give hope, teach others to have faith beyond measure. He can help Pisces face the truth, Pisces knows he is lovingly regarded no matter what. Against the odds, recovery can happen. This can be one person in his own struggle or you working your piece for the world. Pisces gives Jupiter a dream, a vision of what can be, how miraculous recovery can be, what enormous strength and courage it takes. Even Jupiter is humbled…and grateful.

As Jupiter in Aquarius is super lucky for Aquarians, it is out of this world in Pisces for Pisceans! Jupiter cheers them up, expands their already magical dimensions, gives them further faith and awareness, heals their spirits from addictions and fears. Major tours are possible and successful dreams come true! It’s time to push the river a bit while the Gateway is open!

Jupiter returns to Aquarius July 28 until Dec 28 when he re-enters Pisces to stay. The Aquarian and Piscean talents will be commingled! Hopefully groups of crusaders will learn how to work together in current times, accomplish great deeds. Knowledge for all through the internet will keep us immediately informed, focused on task, adjusting priorities quickly! Jupiter traverses only part of one more sign, ARIES! When Pluto enters Aquarius Jupiter will be at 17° Aries in a FIVE planet Aries stellium! That’s what I call a new beginning! 

Starting with the sign changes, in 2021 there are 13 aspects formed in Aquarius and Aquarius’s planet Uranus will be aspected 5 times! The first 4 of those 5 will be challenges, finding the existing weaknesses/blockages, remedying what needs adjusting, getting a flow going. The last one will be a positive aspect, an exciting finale of all those aspects, Feb 17, 2022! 2021 alone will host 16 Aquarian type aspects! Then we wait, let things mingle, brew, progress, prepare, until Pluto makes that stupendous sign change into Aquarius Mar 23, 2023! We need Aquarius to be strong, in working order, integrated and grounded among ourselves, in our communities, internationally. 

We need to strengthen our Aquarian young people, our future leaders, and all Aquarians! Pluto is tough on the sign it is in and at the same time empowers them! Growing pains take strength. Take time to listen, cheer them on. Admire their broad scope, how they get teams going, their care for humanity and our planet, their inventions and science. Help them know how to carry on even when they are not appreciated. They are so intelligent, ahead of their time, that not everyone will understand their work, yet the work needs doing.

The preparation for Pluto entering Aquarius will take steady and dedicated work, staying focused. Everything about how groups and friendships work, the importance and techniques of research, how change is brought about successfully, are the goals. The foundation needs to be set. It will be explored, tested and trialed by Saturn and Jupiter entering Aquarius. 

Pluto in Aquarius will bring a new time. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and Pluto/Aquarius are not exactly ‘compatible.’ Pluto has a ton of charisma, yet is as much private as Aquarius can’t help but bring attention by his simple presence. AQ is exotic, super intelligent, often revels in neon colors, odd/unique looks and attire, has electric static. He can get attention for being THE archetypal loner, or the brilliant head of a world humanitarian organization. Pluto is going to have some adjusting to do. He may be concerned for loss of privacy, be a bit jealous too. At the very worst, there could be power struggles for world rule, including genocide. Or they will do fundraising like never seen before! Pluto may gather the world’s top wealthy humanitarians and make governments of countries look small in comparison. Since these groups will have no governmental constraints, they may bring the world together when governments couldn’t. By comparison, the financially unsupported United Nations may become passé, or it’s possible its structure already in place may be revitalized! Comprehensive large scale inventor/researcher work could do very well to sustain and amplify their efforts. See more

Pluto will be in Aquarius 21 years, until January 2044! All the upcoming Aquarian flavored aspects will give us a head start. We’ll do Pluto in Aquarius better! Pluto was last in Aquarius 248 years ago, 1777 to 1799, a 22 year period of worldwide uproar and change – American revolution, the French revolution, the Industrial revolution in England. And it won’t be any different this time! Guarantee! So get your friends and alliances/networks in working order, stand up, get used to acting progressively, and be ready to roll! Some will mightily resist; others will persist with new ideas. Change will beget change. Take a peek at what Patrick Watson has to say on Pluto per sign historically. Check out what Lynn Hayes has to say about what Dylan Love has to say on transhumanism

Since that last 248 years ago we now have bombs, climate change, electronic communication, robotics, and a helluva a lot more people on the planet. Water and weather wars are possible. Actually, water wars are already starting – pollution prevention, Detroit, Standing Rock. We need to reassess our mandates for leadership – age and both physical and mental health. There are going to be some bumps. Some say, after the kinks are worked out, there will be a ‘Golden Age!’ Make it so. …or would that be really boring?! Evolution never quits.

Young people born around 2003 will be about 20 in March 2023 and from 20 until they are 41, will live this period. Their lives will be about this world changing time. Help them now. Prepare them to be strong and steady leaders then. Strengthen everything Aquarius in your life.

2021 Jupiter and Saturn activate Chiron and Uranus. 

Jupiter initiated connections with Chiron and Uranus. They were just once each, Jan 11 Jupiter in AQ sextile Chiron, Jan 17 square AQ’s planet Uranus. Jupiter is first considering purpose, plans, perspective. Saturn carries these planetary connections to Chiron and Uranus throughout 2021. Feb 9 Saturn in AQ started the sextile Chiron in Aries series, then Feb 17 squared AQ’s planet Uranus in Taurus the first time! Saturn will make these aspects three times each. If Jupiter hit the nail on the head, Saturn will anchor it to build on further. Chiron the healer/teacher in Aries, the Leader, is called on first to guide the way. Then Uranus is challenged. Friendships and alliances will shift due to new needs. It will be a time of weeding the weak, not fully capable or dedicated. At first there may be a seeming standstill as decisions are made, but the situation is brewing just the same. Initially there can be some false starts, mistakes, trial and error needed in this new territory, but things will get sorted out. We’re working with new materials, new energies, new parameters with the virus, new people, new locations, and everyone is adjusting. 

 The most exciting aspect of 2021 is Jupiter sextile the Galactic Center three times! Earth Day April 22, Aug 20 and Dec 12 – Twelve Twelve! Jupiter will consult with the gods and goddesses of the heavens! The GC is the center of our Galaxy, the Milky Way. Jupiter, the far traveler, has no problem with such a journey, especially while in Aquarius, the very sign of the heavens, stars and flight! Jupiter is associated with Sagittarius, the home of the GC! Perfect combination, and how apropos to the Aquarian emphasis at this time! Jupiter will be our emissary, a generally broad minded planet with a huge perspective, a gift to discover possibilities of the future! The GC will not fail to transmit, infuse, present magnificent infinite consciousness stirring insights and instruction. We have three chances to take it in, grow with it. The Galactic Center is at 27 Sagittarius 09. If you have factors in your chart that match up within 5 degrees of that 27th degree, you will be called. Unlike with fixed stars, only 1 degree usually allowed, the Galactic Center is HUGE! If you are involved with meditation, circles, consciousness raising groups, if ever there was a time to tune in, it is NOW!

Paul O. Hewit writes: “it is probably the second strongest spot in any astrology chart, following the Sun. It is a stunning source of energy, motivation, and aspiration. The Galactic Center is the Sun of our Sun. It is the source of most of the gravitational energy present in our galaxy, and probably the source of most of the energy in any chart, transformed through our own Sun.” [Some say the GC IS the strongest factor in our charts!] It moves only a degree every 72 years, so you can easily get the degree it was when you were born. Have your astrologer calculate its exact position for you.

2022’s Three Aspects, the only 2022 Aspects and they only happen once each!

All three of 2022’s aspects are done by May 3, in just over 4 months! All will be formed while Jupiter is in Pisces. The rest of the year will be putting our discoveries into practice, holding and maintaining good ground gained. Jupiter in Pisces and Aries will show us the endings and dreams of Pisces as the last sign of the Zodiac, and the beginnings Aries will work for. It will be good to rest and relax, then stretch our physical and spiritual muscles and take action! 

Feb 17 Jupiter in Pisces sextile Uranus in Taurus Once

This is the last of the Aquarius/Uranus aspects that prevailed from Dec 2020, throughout 2021! Time for celebration and pledges to the future!

Two fast planets in differently tempoed signs Pisces and Taurus. Jupiter loves races and often has the long legs to win! Uranus is the genius with the greased lightning mind! Pisces has an adjustable speed potential, like a fast swimmer, the speedboat or yacht race, but is also the meditator like the Buddha that sat by the road for years…enjoys the silence at the ashram, or the roar of a rock concert! Lots of dimensional ability. Taurus has no intention of rushing about. He has his own steady pace, enjoys sitting peaceably. He’s not lured into undignified behavior.

Jupiter and Uranus’s works are cut out for them. They will speed up the others. They also learn that sitters and plodders are getting quite a bit done with a lot less external energy being shown. They just do it. Pisces finds the shortest route and uses psychic ability to do it. Taurus is sensible and doesn’t worry. He sits with it and the plan forms with his patience. It’s uncanny. They both come up with solutions that are off the books. They think for themselves. At times the fast planets lose themselves in the fray and have to stop, come to their senses, recenter, restart where it all went awry. Sometimes needs require a faster tempo. At those times let the speedy planets guide you. They do have our well being in mind. Pass the baton back and forth!

April 12 Jupiter conjunct Neptune in his own sign Pisces Once

Jupiter in Pisces is the same as Jupiter Conjunct Neptune. Pisces is Neptune’s sign and Neptune is currently IN Pisces, his own sign! Please read Jupiter in Pisces! But! Jupiter right there with Neptune most certainly ups the amps very specifically! Jupiter with Neptune in this potency comes by only every 13 years! 

This is the big event while Jupiter is in Pisces, and likely of 2022! In fact, this is a rather special conjunction. Robert P. Blaschke says ‘2009 has also brought the alignment of Jupiter and Neptune in the sign of Aquarius. [2022 it’s in Pisces, the next sign.] Conjunctions of these two planets take place at 13-year intervals and every thirteenth conjunction recurs at nearly the same Zodiacal position. Neptune’s sidereal cycle averages 165 years and the Jupiter-Neptune conjunctions divide the Neptune cycle into 13 sub-periods (13 x 13 = 169).’ 

Blaschke further writes, ‘As Neptune moves from one sign to the next, eleven out of twelve times it meets Jupiter only once while transiting a sign. Dane Rudhyar and Alexander Ruperti both wrote that the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction is the high-point of Neptune’s stay in any given sign.See more

Neptune, Pisces, work with spiritual matters, soul saving, dire conditions of suffering. It might be saving children in sweat shops, cruel conditions for inmates or mental patients, needed health reforms. Jupiter is the ethical planet that wants justice and has no fear of legal necessities. Knowing this in advance gives us all a heads up that we are coming to a prime time to work in behalf of merciful repairs. Take courage. If you can’t do it yourself, find and fund a proven champion to work in your behalf. Please.  

Alexander Ruperti says ‘The number 13 refers to the Christ principle and as such is the symbol of the power to overcome death and limitations on all planes … Therefore, in essence, the Jupiter-Neptune cycle gives mankind a basic rhythm of and describes its urge toward transcendence.’ 13 is considered by some to represent a Gateway of the Soul.

In our daily affairs, Jupiter may exaggerate with no hope for reason, LOL! Pisces is perfectly happy with this, his magical side is cheering him on, it’s an exciting yarn! Pisces has dreams and Jupiter sees no reason why they can’t come true! The two of them can be utterly mischievous together! Jupiter can sometimes get all ethical and abhors addictions that disable. He looks for ways to help his mates stand clean again, to be strong for their futures, to make the world a better place. Your intuition may surge to overwhelming dimensions, you have never had visions like this before! Thank goodness the conjunction is between the Sun and Saturn in good aspect. Sun Lights the way and Saturn will help anchor the events and build what’s needed.   

May 3 Jupiter in Pisces sextile Pluto in Capricorn Once

The one with the answers walks among us. Some are invisible, some seem ordinary, others really are simply easily sneaky. This can be a super wealth aspect, it just comes upon us though Pisces doesn’t always care about money at all. It can be a cure for old age ailments. Just do what you love and profound healings occur. Time for dreams to become true through laws ala the Right of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. An obscure place or peoples, maybe an indigenous group, become especially important. An extinct animal may reappear or come from frozen wastelands. Maybe you will find the work of your soul! There are many extreme, extremely valuable possibilities that could come with this combination. Pay attention; look below the surface… Be careful not to put your hands or feet where you can’t see… Being lost may be the invitation to a new life. Get the keys to the locks and cross the threshold…

2022 Sign Changes

The only planet changing signs is Jupiter. He previewed Pisces briefly from May 13 to July 28 2021. He returns to Pisces December 28, 2021. In 2022 Jupiter speeds completely through Pisces into Aries in only 5 months, on May 10, after his sextile with Pluto, the last 2022 outer planet to planet aspect! Late 2022 Jupiter retrogrades back into Pisces Oct 27 to Dec 20, a last chance affair, then its onward in Aries, the sign of new beginnings, no going back! The next day is Winter Solstice, the belly of winter. From there are the seeds of new beginnings, the ‘return of the Light!’ See more Jupiter in Pisces

It’s one thing to make your vows in Pisces, another to take action in Aries! Pisces is what you believe in. Some say ‘Do not ask God to guide your footsteps if you are not willing to move your feet.’ The last sign, Pisces carries the Dream of all the signs. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, the first responders. Initiation means more than taking a title. It means doing your vows. Aries are brave leaders, risk takers, rights fighters. They often have to make instant decisions to save lives. They are fiery Spirits that operate on instant instinct. Consulting is one of their best talents. Listen keenly. Ask your questions right now while they are there with you. They will be gone to the next fire quickly. Staying physically fit is essential and can be totally enjoyable. Prowess feels super! Independence is strong. Ride your bike!

Jupiter is looking for purpose with integrity! It takes a core truth and educates as many as will listen to why it is meaningful and worthy. Jupiter has a bold and confident way, expands, embellishes, emphasizes, gives extra! It’s edifying, LOL! Jupiter likes to play and tell whopper stories, have a great big dog and ride the winning horse! In Aries a lot of ground will be traveled, and quickly too! Speed is a delight. Records will be broken! Skating, surfing, skiing! Wow!   

The Galactic Center, Algol and Pluto!

All three of these are dark characters! The GC is a gigantic black hole! Algol has a dark reputation, ie beheadings, when your lights go out. Pluto is the furthest planet from the Sun, the darkest and frozen to boot!

Fixed star ALGOL and the GC are in lockstep! Each being star factors, they each take 72 years to move a degree. Currently Algol is at 26 Taurus and the GC is 27 Sag. Whenever one is activated, so is the other. Algol and the GC have an oblique off center position (inconjunct), aware, but out of the corner of your eye. That position is common in the charts of psychics. They see peripheral factors that influence the outcome. Inconjuncts sometimes lead you on a goose chase, but maybe to greener pastures. You do get a greater perspective. Even if you go back home, you are different. You have perhaps made new friends and associates that can carry that sector for you. Excellent adjustments are in the offing. Destination Algol would not usually be a conscious choice, but sometimes it is part of our Path and it just happens. Square your shoulders and do it, eyes wide open. Fascinating encounter.

Algol is the baddest Star according to some! It is a rare triple star and eclipsing binary, which means it blinks, and changes brightness, even ‘disappears!’ It is the Medusa’s Head, carried in the left hand of the Hero, Perseus. On the dark side, ‘It causes misfortune, violence, decapitation, hanging, electrocution and mob violence, and gives a dogged and violent nature that causes death to the native or others. It is the most evil star in the heavens.’ Some say it’s not the ‘bad’ within us but pushing through blockages to the beauty beyond is what really matters. We can face our demons with sincere intent and life changes for the better! See more!  See more about the spiritual side…

Algol’s bad rep, strikes fear in a lot of hearts, but so does the GC when people find out it is one gigantic black hole!!! You could vanish in an instant! You astral travelers might should be careful? I like to think of Algol as the GC’s Guardian. Algol is considered to be a super powerful feminine force. It would take such an entity to protect the mighty GC! Their off center relationship may take you on the road less followed, so to speak. There is a draw to explore. Algol is ready to stomp her feet and ‘invite’ you to travel, or takes you another place once the GC’s info has been bestowed, a place that needs the information the most. 

Many give Algol a wide berth, plan wisely astrologically. Astrologers often allow 5 degrees for the effective range with Algol while most stars get only 1 degree range. If in neighboring signs, only 3 or less degrees might be used. If you have chart factors in that 5 degree range, one way or another you are connected with Algol. If you have questions, do see your astrologer.

Pluto is now at 24/25° Capricorn and moves only 3° a year. Pluto retrogrades back and forth through the degrees as it travels Capricorn. Anytime it is between 23 Cap 27 to 29 Cap 27, it will trine Algol. That period started Feb 2020, virus time, and will go through Jan 2024. It is now continuously trine Algol. Exact trines are formed 5 times: on Spring Equinox Mar 20, & June 5, 2021, and in 2022 Jan 17, 2022, Aug 29, Nov 16. 

Pluto has been having the Algol experience, and is one of the few who can stand up under this trial. Very luckily, the trine is the most favorable angle, so though not unscathed, he survives. Both Pluto and Algol are respected and incur life and death situations. One hopes the trine bends the relationship with Algol to a more satisfactory outcome. Earth signs are a bit ‘indelible.’ Their effects are more long lasting. Keep turning the tables on Algol’s bad rep. Stay calm in the face of violence, shift your connections so better can happen. Know your rights and choose safety unless/even if you are trying to save someone’s life. If you are the offender, get all the help you can to change. Many a fine leader has come from a dark place.

Those of you with your Saturn’s from 6 to 25 Aquarius will be having your 28/9 year Saturn Returns in Virgo’s year! 

Lunar patterns! For Full Moons the 27th degree (degree of Algol/GC/Pluto) will be activated 8 times Sep 2021 to April 2022. Those of you with factors close to 12 degrees in your charts will be activated by 7 New Moons from Oct 2021 to March 2022. Jan and March 2022 will have two New Moons in Pacific time zone. If you have factors at or within 3 degrees of both 12 and 27, all those New and Full Moons will activate you in sequence through the signs! Set a goal and approach it progressively from every angle, every sign!

Aquarius/Leo Full Sturgeon BLUE Moon August 22!
Virgo Labor Day New Moon September 6!
Pisces/Virgo Full Corn Moon September 20! .


Aquarius/Leo Full Sturgeon BLUE Moon!


Yes, this is the 2nd Leo Full Moon, but it happens the SAME day, just before the Sun goes into Virgo! It keeps the heart open, broadens our perspective, inspires and brightens our Virgo work!
 
Sunday August 22, 29 Aquarius/Leo 37, Full Moon 5:02 AM Pacific!

Galactic Full Moon with Jupiter and Moon in Aquarius tuned to the Galaxy! Seesaw chart balances the light! FOUR planets in their own signs, purity!  

Aquarius-Leo 2021 Full Sturgeon BLUE Moon!

I never thought I would say a Sturgeon was beautiful, but I’m changing my mind. It’s a pretty cool fish! The Native Americans chose well. Some Sturgeon are endangered and need stronger protection. Lake Sturgeon image by the Tennessee Aquarium

Leo’s first Full Moon was the second day of Leo! This second Full Moon is the last day of Leo at 5:02 AM Pacific, on the first day of Virgo, Sun into Virgo at 2:35 PM Pacific! This second Full Moon is called a Blue Moon, being the third of four Full Moons in the summer season!

Leo, the sign of the SUN, will be especially golden this year! Just two days before the second Full Moon, Jupiter retrogrades sextile the Galactic Center again! The GC is the Center of the magnificent Milky Way Starlight! This Full Moon occurs in the glow of this super event! Fire sign Leo, the Heart of Light, trines, most favorably aspects the GC. Leo puts a personal stamp on the situation and brightens the odds! This second Moon is steeped in messages more powerful than shooting stars! The GC is HUGE, and Jupiter is a natural born amplifier! The Full Moon opposition with Moon in Aquarius is especially brilliant and tuned in! Aquarius is the sign of electrical charge, Lightning, and STARS! Aquarius is the sign of the Galaxies, so is a natural receiver of these energies! We’ve got it covered! Leo starts with bright light and ends with super light that surges forward lighting Virgo’s way with volumes of inspired projects!

The Sun, 29 Leo 37, is also conjunct fixed star Regulus, the King of the Heavens, Heart of the Lion, leader of the Four Royal Stars of the ancient Persian monarchy, the Four Guardians of Heaven! Quite a pedigree. Yes, Regulus is now at 0 Virgo, but let’s not forget where he came from, Leo, LOL! Regulus is one of the 15 Behenian stars, considered especially useful for magical applications. When Regulus is good, it is very, very good! Regulus is one of the most fortunate stars in the heavens. It portends glory, riches, and power to all who are born under its influence. See more at Astrology King, including people born with connections to it! What a grand finale to Leo 2021!

As with the New Moon, this chart pattern is a Seesaw as well, with Sun and Moon on opposite sides. Sun is still glorious, at his peak at his last degree of Leo, fully mature, powerful! He is with Mars and Mercury in Virgo, and Venus in Libra! Sun, Mercury and Venus are all potently in their own signs! Moon is 29 Aquarius just past magnificent Jupiter, but in a spread of planets from Capricorn to Taurus. Neptune is in his own sign too, so this chart has FOUR planets in their own signs!

The honorable 29th degree is called an anaretic degree. It is a degree of completion and endings. It is exultant and sad too, to be leaving, perhaps leaving friends behind. It is skilled and a little scared perhaps to go into a place of new beginnings, unknowns. It may be you are glad it’s done, you so done, bored, can’t wait to get on with things! There is a sense of finality, perhaps futility, even fatefulness. There’s no going back at this point, what’s done is done. The heavens move on with us or without us! Head up, be ready to apply your talents to new options! Good chance you will be delighted and proud of yourself!

Jupiter is back in Aquarius, so there are multitudes of ways to make new connections with all kinds of special friends to share talents with! Virgo is next, so there will be critiques and demands for excellence. Virgo is skilled at on-the-job type of showing the way. They will help you with the details that make your work shine! Budgeting may make the difference in your finances. You will be encouraged to take the best care of your health. After your Leo escapades a little rest might be perfect. Breathe deep, be steady, take it as it comes. Jupiter will propose many projects. Choose priorities that make your heart sing.

Sun in Leo‘s job is to be self aware, shine his Light. He sees the incredible advantage of individuality, how each person’s contribution is a special offering. He learns to love with all his heart, to praise himself and others too. Leo shares, both generous gifts and when to let others have the spotlight! It’s their turn.

Moon in Aquarius nurtures the networks! She intuitively guides the right people to work together for mutual cause. She helps with community awareness, finances. Remarkably talented women are brought to public awareness, lead the initiative. Aquarius is inventive, researches future well being, methods and devices that make significant changes for our children’s lives to come. Freedom of spirit allows creativity to flourish. Moon looks for the best of the best, and Leo is often drafted!They have both been charged up by Jupiter in electric Aquarius! Jupiter has opened the boundaries, multiplied by some large number! Jupiter wants to take their ideas traveling with him, and they are glad for his lucky perspectives and plans! There was an overwhelming enjoyment in the wildness of it all, and now the top priorities are being carried along on their paths as well!

Mercury in Virgo wants the whole show to be organized and funded. The books have to balance. Jupiter’s ideas may have inspired new connections that will get it done. Mercury is opposite Neptune. They rule opposite signs, Virgo and Pisces. Virgo is so aware of precision, quality. Neptune can be too. Some of the most remarkable music of all time touches our Soul exactly because of a nuance that sets it apart from the average or mediocre. Neptune can be careless – not in a bad way, but in a free way, exploring the outer fringes of consciousness, not ruled by money… Virgo can slide along with him, somehow knowing it will be ok. It’s clear Neptune has been there before… Insights, visions of how to save ourselves, can become apparent. Things Pisces can ‘see,’ Virgo can make happen. Blessed be.

Pluto at 24 Capricorn, has recently been traveling more closely along in sextile with Neptune again. Depending on the orb, range, you use, they do so for 76 years from 1948 to 2029! You could say ok, so? In this chart Mercury is connected with Neptune, then trine Pluto, so it matters. Neptune is spirituality, our second out most planet, 168 yr orbit. Pluto is the outlier, 248 yr orbit. Orbits being elliptical, they are traveling at about the same speed now, they are in sync, a long term exchange happening. Mercury may have particular understanding. Neptune has compassion; Pluto will clear you, removes poisons. Pluto is everything from birth, to death, rebirth. It’s healing as psychic surgeon to therapist to financial counselor saves us. Mercury’s connection may bring poignant awareness that makes us see the deep importance of our choices.

Mercury was just over Mars, the action leader! In an earth sign, they part out the projects, get skilled people to work the different aspects. Training is sought and, doing what they love and have passion for, they learn quickly. Mars favorably trines Uranus, the Aquarian planet, and is in sync with earth projects, climate needs, basic assets, steady changes. Mars cracks the whip and no one minds! Their team will be one of the first to get there!

Social Diva Venus in Libra, draws in blessed people to exquisitely adorn the accomplishments. Sales are inevitable. She treats all as equally as possible, sees the best they have to offer and when, what they need and want. Her timing is often impeccable! More people with purpose join. Mars and Mercury are right there backing her up, feeding her the latest information, specs. Everyone is collaborating, new projects now becoming possible due to their initial efforts.

Venus is inspired by Chiron in Aries across the chart from her! Chiron is ever impressive as a teacher/healer, but in Aries he leads the pack! The learning pace has picked up, new methods are tried quickly, discarded immediately if they fail. Things are moving right along in the health world. Venus sometimes gets trapped in not wanting to hurt people’s feelings, being nice. Kindness is one thing, but getting things done without ceremony has its place! Aries is a leader and it’s important not to fetter his creative work. First responders are in this category. Let them BE in front, clear the way for you!

Grand Air Trine! Venus is favorably trine Saturn in Aquarius! She is determined and he inspires her to be realistic. The profits are put back into the business, buy new tools, the latest computers and aps. Venus is also trine the Gemini North Node of the Moon! She is already graciously introducing people to each other, and also giving them the information they need to help them think things through. Saturn applies some filters and keeps things on point. No time waster him.


A little more about the magnificent Sturgeon! The Native Americans in their area named this time of year for them because the giant sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this part of summer. The word “sturgeon” means “the stirrer,” which is what this giant prehistoric looking fish does with its ‘whiskers’ when it is looking for food; it stirs up the mud and silt on river and lake bottoms.

Females require around 20 years to start reproducing, and they can only reproduce every 4 years. However, they can live up to 150 years! In times past their common size was like the recent 6-foot-10-inch, 240-pound female that was found, quickly studied and released. These days that’s a rare find and they are endangered due to intense overfishing in the 19th century, pollution, and damage to their habitat.. See more

I hope you rally for this beautiful creature on this special Full Moon.


Make some special time to enjoy this amazing Full Blue Moon! It’s Pure Gold!

Think Future! Virgo is the perfect sign to celebrate Labor Day! Virgos are organizers and they advocate for good jobs well paid! This New Moon is right on the money! We have learned a lot, a lot has happened during the pandemic that is clearing the way for more timely and potent work that will literally make dreams come true! As senior contributor Jack Kelly says in his May 19 post on Forbes: ‘The future has happened already. The pandemic has accelerated existing trends—compressing time. We’ve all experienced Covid-19 time, the feeling of one day blurring into another. Without realizing it, about 10 years went by—or so it seems.’ Check out 10 Hot, Fast-Growing Jobs For The Future Post-Pandemic World There are some terrific, inspiring ideas there! Best of luck to those of you seeking meaningful life changes! You can do it! And this is just the beginning!!!

Many 2021 factors have an Aquarian component. We are preparing for Pluto’s entry into Aquarius in 2023. We are more aware now that some connections need reworking, fixing updating. Some ideas have long term implications worth working for, are financially productive, spiritually satisfying! Make notes then network like crazy to get more ideas to complete the package, select who will work together, and get it rolling! See Saturn in Aquarius Saturn is open to new areas of responsibility. Chiron is sextile, livening him with the latest healing and teaching ideas! Jupiter is back in Aquarius jazzing up Saturn’s prospects! Venus is just past trine Jupiter, blessing the way, dancing the Spirit!

This New Moon is phenomenally Aquarian flavored! The New Moon herself maximally favorably trines Uranus, the Aquarian planet at the same degree! Black Moon Lilith is conjunct Uranus, so there is more pepper in his pot! They are both retrograde, so they aren’t running away, they are making sure things get done. Virgo Sun is shining the Light right where it is needed, offering further practical ideas, streamlining the work the team is doing. Uranus rules friendships, community organizations, networks that can be far reaching, worldwide. They offer their services to key purposes. Virgo is delighted so much can get done. Spirits are high! 

Virgo Moon is backing the tribe with daily get along services right down to the best foods and health services. She brings in computer apps that do the bookkeeping, checks the percentages, scans for the best plans per their costs. Virgo presents their accomplishment successes and more skilled followers join. It’s like a kind of home in your life, to work with them all, an honor. Gratitude for the skills and specialties.

Venus, that little beauty, is in one of her own signs, Libra! Libra knows how to bring the right people together better than a dating service and get them working on track together. She’s the best sweet talker and you are so glad you met her! She is just past trine Jupiter in Aquarius! She’s smart, but Jupiter Aquarius is off the scale! Few really impress her, but wow! Now the other part is Jupiter is famous for fun, but not necessarily finesse. Venus is all about finesse! She knows all the etiquette, knows how to baby the toughest customer, and they turn into lambs. Jupiter tells Truth, but not always at the right time or in the right way to the right people. She can help. He can bring big ideas to her, downright strange but genius Aquarian ideas, and she knows just how to present them successfully. In her hands it seems so easy. And she is inspired too! They might go on a vacation together…

Virgo is being a bit of a trickster here. Mars is 24 Virgo, inconjunct Jupiter 24 AQ, just past trine Pluto 24 Capricorn! My oh my! Upstart Mars has been demanding an increase in Capricorn production. He pushes to let go of antiquated gear and methods, his bookkeeping tells him so, while Pluto is thinking what he will do with Mars one dark night. Yes, even in a trine. You don’t go around bossing the old boss. Yet, when things simmer down, Jupiter is allowed in to consult. Mars seems pretty tame, in Virgo earth, after Jupiter’s audacious proposals. But, for the most part Jupiter is on the right leading path. If they all can gear up, they will be the first to do some of these wonderful things. Play it through. It will be worth the effort. 

So, here it is. The New Moon trines the Aquarian planet Uranus. Three planets are engaged with Jupiter in Aquarius. That’s seven factors involved in Aquarian energy. 

Venus square Pluto the day before is the most ‘dangerous.’ You can fall in love with a married person. You may fear divorce is in the wind. Maybe you leave the organization and all it’s financial benefits. Your job quits you. There could be a huge expense, maybe a sad one. Virgo may have some necessities to take care of. No denial. No exaggerating, be aware. Anticipate possibilities, be prepared. Do your best. Not a time to spend frivolously. Put some money aside for such emergencies. If it is relationship matters, get help if possible, or use your intuition. Sometimes things are meant to happen, to be recalibrated, to be cleared, to be humbled. Recovery may be fast or slow, but we learn. If a circumstance was abusive, once we are free, we are sometimes relieved to be able to move forward at last. Take good care of yourself, be safe.

This may definitely call for Mercury 10 Libra healing across the board from Chiron at 11 Aries. And we need it NOW! Chiron is thrilled to be called and can do some remarkable mending in a very short time. Don’t wait, call! If it is the right time, you, the situation, will be back on its feet in no time. Remember, Mars, the Aries planet is trine Pluto. There may be some sudden surprise ‘outs’ to the situation! He holds the Ace of Diamonds! Mercury is smart, devilishly quick in Libra, and thinks in terms of balance. Pluto can get obsessed, compulsive, so Mercury may be perfect to dart in and break into the closed circuit, dither up the attention lock, get Pluto thinking again! 

Mercury was recently trine Saturn in Aquarius. Saturn has been harnessing all sorts of wild energies and passed some tips to Mercury. They had a rather deep conversation. Some of that sense of responsibility and the needs for timeliness impressed Mercury, and is finding the opportunity to apply them now. Venus may have gotten in a little over her depth, and Mercury is here to back her up. 

Neptune is behind the others. He is in the background in his own sign Pisces, dreaming dreams, blurring some of the drama and fretting. Get time outdoors by the sea, in the mist, lakeside, in the wilderness. Rest, meditate, and believe in yourself and have a reasonable faith in others. Forgive, release, give gratitude. Understanding and compassion go a long way. Find out the other person’s story, or simply know that there is a story…

Our New Moon and Mars in Virgo hold the strength on one side of this Seesaw Chart – planets on both sides of the chart. Mercury and Venus are with them in Libra. The other planets are spread out on the other side. Oppositions are common energy to Seesaws, but the fan is just wide enough that we pick up two strong favorable trines instead! The trines, one including the New Moon, are both Aquarian flavored, so that energy is strong.

Pluto Trine Fixed Star Algol 26 Taurus 27 in 2020 – 2024

Pluto is of Scorpio, the sign opposite Algol’s sign Taurus, but Pluto now in Capricorn gentles that opposition because Pluto Capricorn trines, favors Algol. Pluto rules death and rebirth while Algol is considered to bear misfortune, often death. They understand each other. Neither is to be messed with. Capricorn is noted for facing reality squarely. 

Algol is the baddest Star according to some! It is a rare triple star and eclipsing binary, which means it blinks, and changes brightness, even ‘disappears!’ It is the Medusa’s Head, carried in the left hand of the Hero, Perseus. On the dark side, ‘It causes misfortune, violence, decapitation, hanging, electrocution and mob violence, and gives a dogged and violent nature that causes death to the native or others. It is the most evil star in the heavens.’ Some say it’s not the ‘bad’ within us but pushing through blockages to the beauty beyond is what really matters. We can face our demons with sincere intent and life changes for the better! See more!

Many give Algol a wide berth, plan wisely astrologically. Astrologers often allow 5 degrees for the effective range with Algol while most stars get only 1 degree range. If you have chart factors in that 5 degree range, one way or another you are connected with Algol. If you have questions, do see your astrologer.

Pluto is now at 24° Capricorn and moves only 3° a year. Pluto retrogrades back and forth through the degrees as it travels Capricorn. Allowing a 3 degree range, anytime Pluto is between 23 Cap 27 to 29 Cap 27, it will trine Algol at 26 Taurus 27. That period started Feb 2020 – virus time, and will go through Jan 2024. It is now continuously trine Algol. Exact trines are formed 5 times: on Spring Equinox Mar 20, & June 5, 2021, and in 2022 Jan 17, 2022, Aug 29, Nov 16.

One hopes the trine, a good aspect, bends the relationship with Algol to a more satisfactory outcome. Earth signs are a bit ‘indelible.’ Their effects are more long lasting. Keep turning the tables on Algol’s bad rep. Recent violence, covid deaths, may leave raw feelings of grief, bitterness, betrayal. Freedom is still at issue. Stay calm in the face of violence, shift your connections so better can happen, turn a page, try out some new possibilities. Know your rights and choose safety unless/even if you are trying to save someone’s life. If you are the offender, get all the help you can to change. Many a fine leader has come from a dark place.

Mars is on our radar since he is making a Grand Trine with both big bad wolves! It’s a bit like David and GoliathS! Mars in Virgo is not famous for being a fighter. His pen is mighty as an author, he fights with monies in the ledgers, or for a person who is ill, brings the cures! But he can be sharp tongued, if stupidity comes by. Woops! Or he may speak up abruptly if there is something that just has to be made known right now, no time to lose! The shock of the audacity may save his life if he surprises them into seeing the Truth instantly! Underdogs are often admired since the others were sometimes an underdog themselves. Practically miraculous progress can be made if they team up with these new ideas he offers!

Pluto understands much of this. Capricorn often has working answers to bring us back together in common cause. Be safe and be well. Tread gently. Get all the facts before you pass judgment. Steady in the Light.  

Algol’s connection with the Galactic Center!

Algol and the GC are in lockstep! Each being star factors, they each take 72 years to move a degree. Currently Algol is at 26 Taurus and the GC is 27 Sag. Whenever one is activated, they both are. Algol and the GC have an oblique position (inconjunct), aware, but out of the corner of your eye. That position is common in the charts of psychics. They see peripheral factors that influence the outcome. Inconjuncts sometimes lead you on a goose chase, but maybe to greener pastures. You do get a greater perspective. Even if you go back home, you are different. You have perhaps made new friends and associates that can carry that sector for you, or be a link to that sector when you need it. Excellent adjustments are in the offing. Destination Algol would not usually be a conscious choice, but sometimes it is part of our Path and it just happens. Square your shoulders and do it, eyes wide open. Fascinating encounter.

Oh, yes, Algol strikes fear in a lot of hearts, but so does the GC when people find out it is one gigantic black hole!!! You could vanish in an instant! You astral travelers might should be careful? I like to think of Algol as the GC’s Guardian. Algol is considered to be a super powerful feminine force. It would take such an entity to protect the mighty GC! Algol is ready to stomp her feet and ‘invite’ you to travel, or takes you another place once the GC’s info has been bestowed, a place that needs the information the most.

Virgos, though an Earth sign, are generally a little more sensitive than fellow Earth signs Taurus or Capricorn, more so than some air signs, and fire signs. On a fine New Moon night, things are blended, no Moonlight or shadows. There is a certain equality as the playing field is equalized. It seems more quiet, even subdued, without the contrasts and sharp edges. Sleep can be deeper. Even if there is a breeze, there are no moving shadows…

Wishing you the best rest, work that makes you happy and you feel complete!

Pisces/Virgo Full Corn Moon! 

Monday September 20, 28 Pisces/Virgo 14, Full Moon at 4:55 PM Pacific!

Get things done! Consider the people, take care of yourself!

Get things done! Consider the people, take care of yourself!

The corn there is growing at a high elevation, LOL! By UK based illustrator, Raahat Kaduji

The Sep 20 Full Corn Moon is poised just before the Sun goes into Libra, Fall Equinox Sep 22, and the Libra Mercury retrograde September 26. Mercury will be in his 8 day Station Sep 23 – 30. The Full Moon is doing important prep work, smoothing the way with Virgo details in order, all systems working, makes sure health is optimum, finances are allocated, important liaisons are tended and primed.

As with the New Moon, this chart pattern is a Seesaw as well, with Sun and Moon on opposite sides. But this Seesaw is a loose formation. The only conjunction is what we call ‘out of sign,’ close but not in the same sign. Virgo Sun is with Mars in Libra. Mars is going pretty fast, so Sun doesn’t catch up until Sep 7! The Fall Equinox Sun will join him in Libra Sep 22. They will be close together for 17 days! Virgo wants the best quality. Libra wants beauty as well. Mars initiates relationships with Libras who might be lazing in sociality, or Mars may join with provocative relationship brokers and inspire them to try new purposes pointed to faster results in the face of current weathers – water, and health. Balance in action will be crucial. Unity and sharing expertise is essential.

Moon in Pisces will quickly oppose Mars the 21st at 4:03 AM Pacific. She will remind him that he can push but to keep the other’s frailties or sensitivities in mind. Some people merely avoid, retreat when they see someone faster coming. The connection is lost. Sometimes you can push them out of their shell and they are glad you did. Other times they are bruised and don’t forget. They are lost a long time when gentle respectful kindness would have done the trick. Libra can get heady with court battles with their own family! Mars there is even more fun. So modulate! 

Moon can also give that Pisces vision to Mars whether he even knows he got it or not! Sometimes it comes in a melody, a few words from a seemingly random person on the street, our love of a flower or animal. Take it easy and take it in. 

Mars is more than usually accepting. He is trining Saturn, the planet ‘exalted’ in Libra, exact the 25th at 2:50 PM Pacific. That’s six good days! Saturn is in Aquarius, managing all the wildcards as fast as they come! Saturn is giving people their orders and timing right and left. He is an old Master managing new ways, and Mars rules New! Mars is thrilled because things are getting done sooner by the skilled people Saturn assigns perfectly to match the job! Saturn is enjoying the challenge and showing off his skills to someone who really appreciates them! And Saturn knows when to bide his time. That helps Mars who is often impatient. Mars sees it all working, so he starts to trust Saturn. They may decide to continue working together.

This seesaw is less divisive than many seesaws whose number one aspect is often oppositions. The only oppositions in this chart are the Full Moon axis and Venus opp Uranus!! The Full Moon axis is rich and lighted. They reflect each other, are both big players that we don’t usually see as vying for power.

Venus in Scorpio carries her secrets than can heal or kill, save your Soul or break your heart! Uranus in Taurus can shock you beyond mere reason, or wake you up and shake you back to your true self! Taurus is himself and sometimes more than stubborn. Venus may take some persuading to make her feel safe enough to tell you what she knows. Yes, she wants to heal others, but it may be in private on her own terms. If you want confidentiality, you’ve got it. Uranus wants to network and do humanitarian work. This opposition may have some true separations, or forge some long lasting alliances. Look for the causes that bring unity because they are bigger than minor power posturing.  

At the personal level, Venus opposite Uranus in sexual and sensual signs, may, without a word, engage in some wild intimacy! Whew! May I be so bold as to say Multiple Orgasms?! Tantric sex! If you have been previously tempted by an illicit romance, stay far, far away from these circumstances! Turn off your phone. Do whatever it takes not to rack up some bad karma. No hanky panky with your sponsor. Don’t see anybody until your hormones and pheromones have simmered down.

In daily terms, please be careful of shocks, accidents. If you are tired or not focused, hungry, angry, grieving, lonely, take care of yourself. Drink some water, get a snack, take a nap, call a friend, take a walk, get grounded. Be aware of your personal triggers of possible trouble to come. If harsh words, judgment errors, are common at that time, get away. Come back later. Do what works for you in a good way. 

Mercury at 23 Libra is tight in square with Pluto at 24 Capricorn. She may have difficulty getting an audience. Libra has the utmost tact while Capricorn is often gruff. But he and Pluto may find her attractive, in spite of their concerns they listen. She needs to lay her cards on the table early on, let them see her intelligence and the extent of her consideration of all the angles. She can bring connections to their work, collaboration from successful up-to-date partners. 

Mercury may have had some aces up his sleeve since his visit with psychic Neptune. Neptune and Pluto have been traveling together since the late 40s. Neptune knows Pluto. If Neptune was pleased with Mercury’s intent and ability, he certainly could cue Mercury to effective ways to spark more than Pluto and Capricorn’s love of money and prestige. Or perhaps the new ideas will be the key to life saving industry, an honorable income, funding, a league of international bonding that is bigger than anything ever anticipated. 

Pluto at 24 Capricorn, has recently been traveling more closely along in sextile with Neptune again. Depending on the orb, range, you use, they do so for 76 years from 1948 to 2029! You could say ok, so? Neptune is spirituality, our second out most planet, 168 yr orbit. Pluto is the outlier, 248 yr orbit. Orbits being elliptical, they are traveling at about the same speed now, they are in sync, a long term exchange happening. Mercury may have particular understanding. Neptune has compassion; Pluto will clear you, removes poisons. Pluto is everything from birth, to death, rebirth. It’s healing as psychic surgeon to therapist to financial counselor saves us. Mercury’s connection may bring poignant awareness that makes us see the deep importance of our choices.

Sun and Moon both favorably also recently aspected Pluto. Sun trined, the best connection, and Moon sextiled, indicating opportunity! They put the light on his good works and he may be more in the mood than usual to listen to challenging ideas Mercury may propose. Virgo has the training and the team. Moon in Pisces has outstanding visions and put them to Pluto in a way Pluto’s Spirit could see them too! In fact, perhaps a subconscious longing is still lingering and he was ‘waiting’ to see what was coming… Now if Mercury is just entertaining with his ideas, kind of annoying, there still may be a deeper truth to it all and Pluto may be the one to convert it to a working reality. Give it some thought…

The Full Moon is at the 28th degree, super close to the end of Virgo. There is a seasoned maturity, experience. There has been trial and error, projects about to be finished. There can be an edge in the air, oh god, oh god, will we get done on time?! There is a sense of accomplishment as well, and the joy and fear of stepping into new territory! This being on the brink is part of all the excitement that just may push old Pluto over the line! Let’s do it – carefully!

Jupiter is back in Aquarius through Dec 28! Let’s ramp it up, this is the last chance. We have a 4 month time frame to get this all off the ground into the flight pattern carrying its own weight! Templates can be made. A lot can be done in four months! There are multitudes of ways to make new connections with all kinds of special friends to share talents with! In Virgo there will be potent critiques to keep us right on task. There will be detailed demands for excellence that make the difference! Virgo is skilled at on-the-job showing the way. Budgeting will make it possible. You will be encouraged to take the best care of your health. After your Leo escapades a little rest might be perfect. Breathe deep, be steady, take it as it comes. Jupiter will propose many projects. Choose priorities that make your heart sing.

Moon and Sun have been charged by Jupiter in electric Aquarius! Jupiter has opened the boundaries, multiplied by some large number! Jupiter wants to take their ideas traveling with him, and they are glad for his lucky perspectives and plans! There is an overwhelming enjoyment in the wildness of it all, and now the top priorities are being carried along as well!

Hopefully Mercury has made some gains with Pluto, because Mercury is 23 Libra trine, success, with Jupiter 23 Aquarius! Mercury wants to sign the contract, tell the story of his hard won success! He’s wanting Pluto to share in the glory! There may be some temporary need for non disclosure, but play that out. The announcement will be big news when it comes! Far more people may be involved now than when it started! Could involve a space adventure!  

Venus has just been inspired by Chiron in Aries all over again only this time Venus is in Scorpio! Scorpio and Aries are both fighters, Scorpio the ninja, Aries the front man. Chiron is ever impressive as a teacher/healer, but in Aries he leads the pack! Venus and Scorpio admire a champion against tall odds, support him when possible. The learning pace has picked up, new methods are tried quickly, discarded immediately if they fail. Things are moving right along in the health world. Venus in Scorpio may at times choose to say nothing rather than use the stinger. She may wait for the right time, do it in privacy, see if an adjustment can be made or if ties need to be cut. Chiron may opt for getting things done without ceremony and there are times cutting ties at once is the least painful option! Aries is a leader and it’s important not to fetter his creative work. First responders are in this category. Let them BE in front, clear the way for you! 

FIXED STARS

The New Moon axis squares, is challenged by, Polaris, the Pole Star, and Betelgeuse of Orion fame, they conjunct at 28 Gemini!

Polaris: ‘The Chinese considered the Pole Star as “the great honorable Lord of the Heavens.” In a relevant position in the natal chart it gives spiritual powers to the bearer, who will be highly respected. The Pole Star serves as a guide and indicator. If it is conjunction planets in the angles, the native will have a good sense of discretion and is able to follow his or her instincts. The native clearly recognizes his or her aims, and will pursue and achieve them.’

Read more, especially about calcium absorption and bones.

Betelgeuse: Betelgeuse is one of the largest stars known, and is rapidly shrinking in size at an increasing rate. Betelgeuse is 15% smaller than it was fifteen years ago. This has led to predictions that Betelgeuse will explode into a supernova in the next few years. Astronomers say it will turn into a supernova at some stage but cannot say when, but when it does it will be as bright as the full Moon!

In Orion, the constellation of war, it is said to give a strong and dignified nature, self-confidence, inconstancy, arrogance, violence, impiety, prosperity in trade and particularly by voyages or abroad, but danger of treachery and poison. It was thought by the Romans to be very harmful to cattle and productive of storms.

What seems at first to be a mild chart has a lot of potency!

Yes! Get things done!

Mercury 2021 Libra Retrograde Violin Art Culture City Romance NightSky

Music, Art, Life and Retrogrades have plenty of curves in any direction! Some are on flat land horizontal, some are high and low altitude, some are cross dimensional, span time, are the weave of the fabric of culture and connections we make with one another! Most are variable to a high degree and importantly unpredictable! 

All three of the 2021 Mercury Retrogrades are in Air signs, Aquarius, Gemini, now, last, Libra! Libra Mercury wants to know you, your family’s culture, political interests, your marital status, what your favorite arts and music, cuisine are, what countries you have been to and what you do for whom! They are terrifically social and will introduce you to the ‘right’ people, and can’t help being matchmakers. They will mediate for you and help with legal work, teach you manners. Do the calligraphy on your invitations. Oh, and set up your social calendar, plan and graciously manage your events, replete with lovely flowers in all the right colors. You will often see them at art museums and symphonies. Libra is vibrant with love and intelligence. They see both sides, give great therapy. We are different yet we are One and Equal.

Mercury is the planet of the Mind, thinking, our attention, our breath and lungs, how we learn to learn, communication skills, gathering data, paperwork, signing contracts, a hand shake, the laying on of hands. All of these are essential.

Mercury is heady, there is little that isn’t interesting and little escapes its attention. Gemini is Mercury’s first sign, and Earthy Virgo is Mercury’s other sign that focuses on details, looks for perfection, expertly organizes and applies the data Gemini secures, is semi grounded! Both are known to be ultra busy! Gemini listens fast, often replies while you are still speaking! Virgo writes the book, organizes the finances, won’t go home, just has one more detail to finesse, worries about her and your health. They are quite different, you see.

Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers about issues of the sign(s) Mercury is retrograde in! Or, do everything to make it possible so it doesn’t fall through. Escrows can fall through. Use experienced brokers who can get it done no matter what. People don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! You lose your cell. You get lost, turned around. Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Date and sign any contract changes and make sure they do too. Get/make copies, save and backup. Generally, you avoid making significant purchases/decisions especially of matters specific to the sign/s involved. If possible, don’t move or change or start jobs until you wait 4 days after Mercury turns Direct/forward.

The house/s where Mercury falls in your chart while it is retrograde is the area of your life that will be specially affected. Briefly: If it is in your 4th, it is home and family matters. If in your 2nd or 8th, financial adjustments will be made. 6th can be work environment, skills, coworkers, your health regime. 5/7/8 houses can be important relationships. 3/9 is educational, class requirements may shift. 9 is long term plans, travels. 10 may be career, 11 career associations/associates, friendships. 12 may be your spiritual beliefs, perceptions. So for example, if in your 10th, be cautious about signing professional documents. If in your 4th, you may opt to wait to buy the new refrigerator – a better deal or fridge may come along. In the 1st or 3rd you might wait to purchase a new vehicle. In 2 or 7, wait for the facelift. If you need help with this, see your astrologer!

About Retrogrades!

Inner planet retrogrades have three phase cycles. Sometimes outer planets have five and take 3 years! Sun and Moon have none. The 3 parts are:

  1. Covering the initial ground, degrees that the retrograde will go back over when the planet ‘turns’ retrograde.
  2. Retrograde covers the same degrees as Phase 1, only in the reverse direction, so your perspective takes a 180 shift while other planets continue in their own patterns, many of them moving forward. While retrograde it checks on previous actions, improving on choices made as it goes back.
  3. The planet turns ‘forward,’ and goes over the same degrees a third time, adds finishing touches, makes experienced final adjustments before it moves on.

Stations bring special emphasis! A Station is when a planet literally appears to stand still in the sky at the retrograde and direct turning points. Stations help us slow down. They are a pause when we are able to be still to receive, focus, take time to think. We make things the best we can, anchor important ideas we want to keep. The longer the station the more its strength. Mercury sometimes likes to think things over, draw as much from a valuable experience as possible, or get to know a special person more deeply. More often, it is likely to go crazy waiting for more things to happen and wants to be the first to deliver the news! They may need to rest at the station because a lot has been changing. It can be a relief to take a breather from the rigors of speeding here and there so they don’t miss a morsel!

Planets at different speeds hold station different lengths of time. Mercury stations are about 8 days – four days before and four days after the turns. This retrograde Mercury covers 10 Libra 07 to 25 Libra 28. Prepare for retrogrades as best you can before the Retrograde Station starts! When Mercury turns forward, wait for the Direct Station to finish before turning yourself loose to go ahead.

FIXED STARS

The 10 degree Libra Direct Station is conjunct the fixed star Vindemiatrix in constellation Virgo. Per Robson it is of the ‘nature of Saturn and Mercury (profound liar, thief, blackguard, scandal and slander.) It gives falsity, disgrace, stealing, wanton folly and often causes its natives to become widows.’ Not so fun. Mercury conjunct Vindemiatrix is considered impulsive, too hasty, loss through writings and business. Nervous irritability if badly aspected. It’s true Mercury can be loose lipped, a gossip, so be extra careful with your words. What seems nothing to you may mean everything to someone else. If in doubt, don’t. Jamie Partridge says ‘it figures strongly and regularly in deaths which are in some way dramatic, newsworthy or are resented in much more than the usual degree by those left behind (assassinations, common criminal murders, executions, airline disasters etc.).’ Also it rules the right kidney – drink lots of water. Turn the tables on it!

Mercury’s 25 degree Retrograde Station is square Behenian Fixed Star Procyon. This star is of the Little Dog, arrives in the night sky before Sirius in Canis Major. Procyon gives activity, violence, sudden and violent malevolence, sudden preferment by exertion, elevation ending in disaster, danger of dog bites and hydrophobia, and makes its natives petulant, saucy, giddy, weak-natured, timid, unfortunate, proud, easily angered, careless and violent. Challenges there too. Considered to have the nature of Mercury and Mars it is exaggerative, argumentative, unreliable, unscrupulous, given to invective, mechanical ability, very quick mind, a great talker. It does have some talents! Here we go: As a Behenian star, it gives the favor of the gods, spirits and men, power against witchcraft, and preserves the health. Yes, a square requires some work to make it good for you. Jamie has a lot more fascinating things to say about it! Worth the read.

Mercury’s Rx in Libra, changes our relationships with ourselves and partners of marriage standing and in business. Our social standing shifts as we rethink our alliances. We may come to understand our place in the culture we were born in differently than as told to us by our parents. Our parents’ relationship may have influenced us more than we realized. More beauty, dance, music and art may open our spirits. Get out your art gear, sign up for the dance class! Meet some new people from different areas and countries. Talk about the important things our planet needs today. Take more of a shared leadership position. See what others have to offer and you can give. Rebalance your age associations. Hear what young people have to say; listen to the elders who have expertise. Visit some sacred places.

Jupiter in Pisces was in a brief sneak preview from May 13 to July 28, then Jupiter returned to Aquarius to finish up! Jupiter rules Sagittarius, the arrow arcing over the rainbow, and Pisces is the huge Ocean of civilization! They both can have a broad range of attention. Sagittarius travels and teaches at Universities. Pisces borders the shores, has major international ports of exchange, ships sail the seas linking huge distances. They both have to do with ‘God,’ Sag at church, Pisces in the direct link of meditation. Jupiter is fiery, bold, at times brazen and opinionated, while Pisces will set up a rousing concert, from rock star to symphony making music that moves your Soul! Pisces can be a resounding believer, willing to sacrifice everything including life itself. Jupiter and Pisces are a bit at odds at times, could be as simple as Jupiter talking too loudly when Pisces is wanting quiet time to meditate. But Jupiter has an uncanny knack to tell a joke that makes Pisces laugh after all when Pisces goes too somber for too long. Jupiter sees and wants the best! He will support Pisces to the pinnacles of spiritual power, teach religious studies, improve the Pisces seaside sports business! Whatever it takes. They can go surfing, maybe at Nosara in Costa Rica, famous for yoga and year-round surf! This Piscean adventure with larger than life characters will give Mercury plenty to think about! Take lots of images, plenty of video – make sure the camera is in order and you have spare parts, get the blog going, inspiration abounds! Mercury is ace at sales and advertising. Plus, Mercury in Libra is a terrific companion – intelligent, sophisticated, usually quite educated! See more

So that was the Pisces preview. Jupiter is now back in humanitarian Aquarius through Dec 28, aiming us toward world work. Jupiter is now using these Piscean perceptions and techniques to inspire the people to make new friends and together change the most important things that will free us to make more change in a good way. Grassroots action and long time professionals are working together like never before with all our technology to connect worldwide. Experienced workers are guiding and supporting. Hot spots are reported and promptly attended to. Further technological connections and research are showing us new ways to make working change.

Mercury in Libra’s relationship and partnering skills are perfect for the needs to join forces in unity. Libra can mediate on their feet, talk us through for the best collaborative results! Libra brings out the best on both sides and the middle, LOL! Mercury in Libra models how to successfully speak with one another, respect, mutual listening, valuing differences. As a result, surprising discoveries are common! People change right in front of your eyes! Libra tends to be one to one, whereas Aquarius is groups and networks, communities, class action suits, but Libras are renowned for their lawyering skills in behalf of individuals and organizations! Then there is sharing sweet social time, beauty, all the more precious when our lives are full of making the world a better place for each other.

There are four outer planet events repeated three times during Mercury retrograde! 

The planetary connections made during a retrograde cycle, especially the ones that repeat, indicate part of its purpose, how the retrograde can help. Those combinations, along with the retrograde, help prepare us for planetary aspects that follow, whether the aspects are in the sky or in your personal chart. And, of course, the connections they make, or don’t, with your chart, factor in personally! See your astrologer if you need help with this!

Mercury in Libra inconjuncts Uranus in Taurus. Both Libra and Taurus are Venus signs. Taurus rules the Earth and her Beauty, the blessings of trees that breathe, water, foods, the condition of our climate. Libra rules the people that stand up for her, the relationships we have with one another, the ability to share problem solving. Together, with Uranus humanitarian expertise, we can make broad change. Mercury can quickly spread the word to let people know what they can do, even everyday things that make a difference. Libra can make illustrations, connect top experts. Mercury brings the data, suggests amazing options that are doable. Taurus is sensible and knows about excellent applications that have already been tested in other areas. They all work beautifully together. There’s that phrase, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Uranus in Taurus

Mercury in Libra is inconjunct Neptune in Pisces also, forming a YOD! Mercury links Uranus and Neptune at the point of the Y among the three of them! To activate one activates the others! Neptune has the 6th sense of the most important needs. Neptune rules the oceans, the great Mystical Drift of Souls. Significant change will lift Spirits. Fears, Depression and Grief will lift as we each do our part to balance our systems. Mercury is quite intellectually gifted in Libra to find connections that are life changing, both in our environment and among the People. Differences become assets, and Neptune psychically sees how mergers and unity of cause will give blessing beyond what was thought possible. Neptune in Pisces

Mercury in Libra trines LUCKY Jupiter in Aquarius! Finally we can expand the Network with dedicated and skilled craftspeople who are artisans in their own right! The promises of the future are so exciting it may take a bit of time to settle down, delegate the right work to the right people. There may be too many people in the beginning and two groups may need to be formed to work different legs of the project toward the common goal! Travelers, teachers, guides, legalities, publications will all figure in. Research specialists will be working the hours to find the best new options for these times. Keep your meetings on track, and be sure to have some special social time too! Jupiter in Aquarius

Mercury in Libra is square Pluto in Capricorn! Now this can be a toughie. Pluto is the one to convince. He can be back in the old ‘that’s what my father did’ ways. Or, he has been waiting so long to get free! Mercury can open that gateway to some fancy dancing thinking that is refreshingly up to date, an adventure you can’t resist! All the most marvelous citizens will be along. There will be the needed funding. The project looks sophisticated, elegant, an honor to be on board! Capricorn likes intelligence and no wasting time. No time like the present. They can remove old blocks, solve what comes along. It’s all new to us, heroes in the making! [Pluto has been in Capricorn since January 2008. The most powerful aspect perhaps has been Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, Conjunct Pluto!]

More About Retrogrades!

Retrogrades are fascinatingly complex! The wild dynamics of retrograde cycles are, as viewed from Earth, that a planet appears to go forward, backward, then forward over the same ground three times, and if outer planets sometime five, times! Of course that doesn’t happen in reality. It is visual because of the perspective from Earth. During that time, all the other planets are moving too, so even when a retrograde planet is going ‘backward’ over the same area, they are ALL going forward, even the retrograde planet! It’s ‘illogical,’ but that’s what happens. Venus retrogrades about every 19 months for only about 40 days. Only 7–8% of the population has it in their natal chart. Mercury retrogrades 3 times a year, once every 6 years it’s 4 times that year. Mercury actually spends little time retrograde. In fact, only 18% of the population is born during Mercury retrograde! Mars retrogrades every 25/26 months for 60-80 days.

The good part is that where people or businesses have retrograde planets, in their birth charts, they often have special skills. The most successful Corporations often have a lot of retrograde planets – they keep working it until they are best, and they keep working it as time goes on, so they stay the best! They go back, keep up, update! The type of special communication skills of Mercury retrograde depend on which sign, house and planets Mercury connects with in your chart and what type of connections are made. Check out the planets of your own chart and charts of babies born during retrogrades!

Every Retrograde is unique by sign, aspects, and where it happens in your chart! As time goes on the planetary backdrop changes. Context shifts. Retrogrades, like any other astro phenomena, evolve. Each planet has its own matters. The sign(s) it is in while in retrograde, are how those matters are applied, what matters are processed.

Sometimes retrogrades cross Portals, where sign changes happen! As they go forward, retrograde, then recross forward, we learn how to make that particular crossing. Gradually we see how those two signs are linked, work together, support each other. We see the contribution of each sign, how they each are part of the Zodiacal Great Circle. Be mindful of your own talent, offer it. Be mindful of what others have to offer, be grateful. You may not like them, but we can’t do without their part of the divine tapestry, the Light they hold at that crossroads.

What a journey! When you are traveling, what amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. Maybe what’s behind is out of sight, a memory; what’s ahead is a mystery! Inward turns, like retrograde, give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. Outward bends like turning forward/Direct, extend our vision of potentials. Mercury in air sign Libra lets us think about alliances, working together. It shows us natural flow, keeps our Spirit fluid, makes us aware of deeper channels within us. Each turn, that Station, gives us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch. It’s important that there are changes, reversals, old ideas that clogged things up are left behind, revelations have room to occur, new ideas are teased into action! Potential is remembered and we are rededicated.

Clearly life doesn’t stop during retrogrades, and not all people’s charts are connected to all retrogrades. If your chart is connected to any given one, you will need to do your best and what you can. You can’t explain this astrological stuff to all people, maybe not your boss or even a good friend. Astrology? You’re nuts! Ok, so there are times to find ways to stall or not connect, delay. You can estimate the possibilities of others not bringing certain papers to the meeting and bring them yourself, save the day! You can ask for a review of the current decisions 4 days or more after Mercury goes Direct/forward. If there are important must do meetings, Dr and Veterinarian appts, call in advance to verify that the date and right time are on their calendars AND yours! Verify that part you ordered IS ordered, being sent to the correct address, the expected arrival date! Know that it might be late. Keep track of keys, wallets/purses.

Document your work and events daily, save ALL emails and backup safely off the premises. No giving your passwords or copies of keys to anyone. If all goes well, fine. If not, all the pertinent information you need is available.

If you have other favorable prevailing aspects, especially with outer planets, it is likely changes will ultimately be to your benefit. Do check with your astrologer for your good dates and times of day to make the best of it! And pray their chart isn’t affected by the retrograde, LOL!

With a transiting Retrograde, if you have factors in your chart at or very close to those degrees, especially at the station degrees, you will be activated. Check in with your astrologer if you have significant plans at those times. Plan ahead for what you want to get done, as much as possible, well before those times, and line up what you can do during those times!

Engage Honorably in your Relationships. Cherish our differences. Give Gratitude for sharing.

Leo 2021-22 Celestial HighLights, Timeline, Overview!

Leo 2021 Summer Woodland Fairy Floral Crown

This extravagant woodland faerie crown was created for Blossym the Fairy who appears at children’s parties and charity events. Please see more!

Love and Glory all starts in Summer! Leo babes often go naked in summer heat, just being themselves. They live with their parent protectors and in teen times find they are different than their parents and other loved ones, seek their own specialties, develop healthy pride in who they are. There becomes a Peace at Center, being your true self! This is a gift to us all, for us to feel safe in our hearts, imperfect, but becoming. 

Leos are incredibly creative and wonderful performers even as children! Color and adornment start with a sparkly tiara, a headband of flowers, a crown! Later on they become the princess/prince, king and Queen laying the sword of Knighthood on our shoulders for worthy feats, including those who have contributed with honor. We are well loved by being gifted with recognition. 

No podium, concert audience is too big for them! Yes, they do have fears at times, but part of their legacy, their instinct, is to do it anyway! Their hearts are overflowing with wanting to share what’s remarkable, to open our hearts too! Their performances in theatre and film are life changing with poignant renditions of important events that are common to us all, or beckon us to a better future. Dramatic abilities, extraordinary makeup, incredible hair, grab our attention and keep it!  

Leos have big spirits, can be quite athletic, great dancers! Daily they often look like they are in a hurry! It just feels good to move! They are known to bet on anything that moves, LOL! Races bring out their best when they are participating yet they will help others to win rather than win themselves. They love teaching, generously share the best tips they know, encourage you to take not just good, but excellent care of yourself!  

Lion hearted strength and bravery! Mortality is a rigorous circumstance of the Soul. It requires determination, self discipline. There are graceful models of astonishing beauty, models of flat abs. Instructors show us how to do it ourselves, how to master and grow our specific strengths, how to surpass our past, be aware of our fears, know what to do anyway. Super Masters take us on spiritual journeys beyond our visible world, live into healing heart and soul, true strength and bravery. All of that wisdom is alive, and others are needing and wanting it right now! Just being radiant attracts people who are ready for more. Leos give what they can soonest! 

Romance is a Leo specialty. From sitting on a hay bale together to the finest tux and elegant dress. Spectacular flowers, your own garden roses. Chocolates or your favorite homemade treat. Going to a concert, symphony. Love gifts – a stone you found, priceless jewelry including that wedding ring! Leos like gifts and give gifts from the heart.  Special places, special times together mean a lot. 

When Leos love you, they love you big! Could be a massive Lion hug! You may be blessed with a golden or platinum ring with a larger finer gemstone of a more superb color than average! For special things and times like these you may happily spend more to give something powerful to your special person. It really is meant to be forever. That means a lot. 

Together, Heart to Heart, one by one, we can make the world a better place!

Leo 2021 Summer Hollywood Bowl by Adam Latham

The Hollywood Bowl and many venues are open in this Summer of 2021! Let’s celebrate! Photo by Adam Latham

Many 2020 and 2022 charts are Bowls, rare Bundles, and Buckets and seesaws! They are a concentrated force! The Feb 11 2021 SIX planet air sign Aquarius New Moon stellium Bundle Chart was a super example! All the planets were in a potent 113 degrees, less than a third of the wheel! See more about Bowls and Bundles If a singular planet or a pair or cluster of very close planets venture beyond these formations, a Bucket Chart is formed, emphasis on these ‘handle’ planets. If several planets loosely spaced move opposite the base group, a Seesaw Chart is formed, planetary oppositions common, balance sought. In these times when the slow moving outer planets are closely together, the base group is steady. The Bundles and Bowls alternate with the Buckets and Seesaws as ‘inner’ planets, Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus, sometimes Mars, proceed on their own out of the base group during the year. In her 27 day cycle, Moon jumps out ahead every month.

2021 is a super special AQUARIAN TIME! The February 11 SIX planets stellium Aquarian New Moon may have inaugurated a 2nd wave of the ‘Dawning of the Age of Aquarius!’ 59 Years ago in Feb 1962, the New Moon Eclipse chart had seven Aquarian planets and lasted longer. Saturn and Jupiter are in Aquarius, made the Great Conjunction Solstice Dec 21 2020! 2015 to 2024 Uranus, the planet of Aquarius, has been and is the lead outer planet. 2021 has numerous outer planet aspects in Aquarius and ones formed to Aquarius’s planet Uranus, plus, Jupiter sextiles the Galactic Center three times! These prepare us for Pluto entering Aquarius March 2023, Pluto on a 248 year cycle! 

Mind you, the Ages are long, roughly every 2,150 years. Even 100 years would be a reasonable time frame for a transition from one to another. I think we could easily include 1962 and 2020/21 events and Pluto’s sign change into Aquarius in 2023 as part of the process. Pluto takes 248 years to circuit the zodiac. FYI the ages are reversed through the signs due to the Precession of Equinoxes. The previous age was Pisces, so we are now backing into the last degrees of Aquarius.

Going back to recent planetary action, Saturn and Jupiter just made the leap for freedom, went into Aquarius Dec 16 and 19, made the GREAT CONJUNCTION Winter Solstice Dec 21! As one journey ends another begins. Pluto is in its final years of being in Capricorn. Pluto holds the power of life and death, represents the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes. In our lives that can be represented by poverty, bankruptcy, turned to wealth and powerful relationships. Capricorn is the mountain goat that rises to the heights, has staying power in extreme conditions, oversees, makes the laws, is the most efficient of all the signs, a survivor due to his own talents.

To make this Capricorn facet more potent, Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, and Jupiter were with Pluto as his support team! The difficult part was the Jan 12 2020 Saturn conjunct Pluto that probably brought the Virus, and Jupiter, a traveler, that had a role in transmitting it from China to other places. Yet, Pluto will continue to make impressive progress these last few years even though Saturn and Jupiter have left him, now are in Aquarius. He may do even better because they have changed signs, leading him, wanting collaboration with the people to cure and heal, prevent more illness – and not just the virus, but working other matters as well. Since Pluto will be going into Aquarius March 2023, their work now is critical, paving the way for him. 

Following the Jupiter in Pisces preview from May 13 to July 28, Jupiter in Aquarius continues to bring exceptional opportunities, especially for Aquarians through Dec 28! The sign lucky Jupiter is in, is the sign that succeeds and prospers! Saturn’s previous entry into Aquarius virtually shut down the airlines; Jupiter will revive them given certain conditions! Airlines, electronics, communications, organizations for sustainable change will flourish at new levels. Many patents will be filed, robotics, flying cars included. Jupiter in Aquarius! 

Adventurous Jupiter loves unstable ground, relishes making all the quick clever adjustments! Both Jupiter and Aquarius live for freedom! Since Saturn previewed Aquarius Mar 21 to July 1 2020, he is experienced and can handle the boisterous Jupiter Aquarius frolicking. He already knows there are lucky genius ideas afoot sometimes disguised as if there are no cares in the world! He sees it is that very freedom that makes them possible! He is able to tap the connections, make astute changes quickly, grab them while they are available ~ any moment Jupiter could run off to anywhere! The changes can enhance his business immeasurably! Jupiter’s current sign is where the good fortune is! Be ready to shift certain investments, adjust projects to include new, additional goals, especially those oriented to humanistic and planetary wellbeing. Aquarius will be delighted because as a researcher/thinker he doesn’t always get out to play, and Jupiter plays big. Jupiter even ups the amps on Aquarius’s own far thinking, and that is a rare thing to happen! Isn’t life grand?! Saturn may find himself on safari with Jupiter, or gone on the wind taking the computers to the surf zone when the surf’s up, whichever continent that may be on! Working from ‘home’ takes on new meaning! Really! Can be done!

Jupiter in Aquarius is like lightning! Things will happen quickly. This will be one of those periods when time itself seems speeded up! Jupiter in AQ knows the importance of immediate networking planet wide and how short a year’s window can be. Saturn has already been laying the groundwork. The possible collaboration of this team can have outstanding results much sooner than expected. 

Jupiter speeds through Aquarius in record time, enters PISCES May 13 2021! It gives us a very brief preview, retrograded at 2 Pisces June 20! Magic happens! Jupiter travels the world, while Pisces travels the Spirit! Jupiter is a fiery planet so it may take a little getting used to Neptune’s Pisces damp waters. Yet, Jupiter loves speed sports, surfing, sailing, jet skiing, anywhere, the bigger the waves the better! Just be careful of tsunamis and floods! Jupiter philosophizes, tries to be just, to plan the best big future. Pisces talks with God, is psychic to the furthest realms, compassion his ruler. Jupiter may be harshly opinionated and Pisces can be an unable lost addict. Jupiter can be unkind; Pisces can be in denial, beyond caring. The other side of Jupiter is generous, can give hope, teach others to have faith beyond measure. He can help Pisces face the truth, Pisces knows he is lovingly regarded no matter what. Against the odds, recovery can happen. This can be one person in his own struggle or you working your piece for the world. Pisces gives Jupiter a dream, a vision of what can be, how miraculous recovery can be, what enormous strength and courage it takes. Even Jupiter is humbled…and grateful.

As Jupiter in Aquarius is super lucky for Aquarians, it is out of this world in Pisces for Pisceans! Jupiter cheers them up, expands their already magical dimensions, gives them further faith and awareness, heals their spirits from addictions and fears. Major tours are possible and successful dreams come true! It’s time to push the river a bit while the Gateway is open!

Jupiter returns to Aquarius July 28 until Dec 28 when he re-enters Pisces to stay. The Aquarian and Piscean talents will be commingled! Hopefully groups of crusaders will learn how to work together in current times, accomplish great deeds. Knowledge for all through the internet will keep us immediately informed, focused on task, adjusting priorities quickly! Jupiter traverses only part of one more sign, ARIES! When Pluto enters Aquarius Jupiter will be at 17° Aries in a FIVE planet Aries stellium! That’s what I call a new beginning! 

Starting with the sign changes, in 2021 there are 13 aspects formed in Aquarius and Aquarius’s planet Uranus will be aspected 5 times! The first 4 of those 5 will be challenges, finding the existing weaknesses/blockages, remedying what needs adjusting, getting a flow going. The last one will be a positive aspect, an exciting finale of all those aspects, Feb 17, 2022! 2021 alone will host 16 Aquarian type aspects! Then we wait, let things mingle, brew, progress, prepare, until Pluto makes that stupendous sign change into Aquarius Mar 23, 2023! We need Aquarius to be strong, in working order, integrated and grounded among ourselves, in our communities, internationally.   

The preparation for Pluto entering Aquarius will take steady and dedicated work, staying focused. Everything about how groups and friendships work, the importance and techniques of research, how change is brought about successfully, are the goals. The foundation needs to be set. It will be explored, tested and trialed by Saturn and Jupiter entering Aquarius. 

Pluto in Aquarius will bring a new time. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and Pluto/Aquarius are not exactly ‘compatible.’ Pluto has a ton of charisma, yet is as much private as Aquarius can’t help but bring attention by his simple presence. AQ is exotic, super intelligent, often revels in neon colors, odd/unique looks and attire, has electric static. He can get attention for being THE archetypal loner, or the brilliant head of a world humanitarian organization. Pluto is going to have some adjusting to do. He may be concerned for loss of privacy, be a bit jealous too. At the very worst, there could be power struggles for world rule, including genocide. Or they will do fundraising like never seen before! Pluto may gather the world’s top wealthy humanitarians and make governments of countries look small in comparison. Since these groups will have no governmental constraints, they may bring the world together when governments couldn’t. By comparison, the financially unsupported United Nations may become passé, or it’s possible its structure already in place may be revitalized! Comprehensive large scale inventor/researcher work could do very well to sustain and amplify their efforts. See more

Pluto will be in Aquarius 21 years, until January 2044! All the upcoming Aquarian flavored aspects will give us a head start. We’ll do Pluto in Aquarius better! Pluto was last in Aquarius 248 years ago, 1777 to 1799, a 22 year period of worldwide uproar and change – American revolution, the French revolution, the Industrial revolution in England. And it won’t be any different this time! Guarantee! So get your friends and alliances/networks in working order, stand up, get used to acting progressively, and be ready to roll! Some will mightily resist; others will persist with new ideas. Change will beget change. Take a peek at what Patrick Watson has to say on Pluto per sign historically. Check out what Lynn Hayes has to say about what Dylan Love has to say on transhumanism

Since that last 248 years ago we now have bombs, climate change, electronic communication, robotics, and a helluva a lot more people on the planet. Water and weather wars are possible. Actually, water wars are already starting – pollution prevention, Detroit, Standing Rock. We need to reassess our mandates for leadership – age and both physical and mental health. There are going to be some bumps. Some say, after the kinks are worked out, there will be a ‘Golden Age!’ Make it so. …or would that be really boring?!

Young people born around 2003 will be about 20 in March 2023 and from 20 until they are 41, will live this period. Their lives will be about this world changing time. Help them now. Prepare them to be strong and steady leaders then. Strengthen everything Aquarius in your life.

2021 Jupiter and Saturn activate Chiron and Uranus. 

Jupiter initiated connections with Chiron and Uranus. They were just once each, Jan 11 Jupiter in AQ sextile Chiron, Jan 17 square AQ’s planet Uranus. Jupiter is first considering purpose, plans, perspective. Saturn carries these planetary connections to Chiron and Uranus throughout 2021. Feb 9 Saturn in AQ started the sextile Chiron in Aries series, then Feb 17 squared AQ’s planet Uranus in Taurus the first time! Saturn will make these aspects three times each. If Jupiter hit the nail on the head, Saturn will anchor it to build on further. Chiron the healer/teacher in Aries, the Leader, is called on first to guide the way. Then Uranus is challenged. Friendships and alliances will shift due to new needs. It will be a time of weeding the weak, not fully capable or dedicated. At first there may be a seeming standstill as decisions are made, but the situation is brewing just the same. Initially there can be some false starts, mistakes, trial and error needed in this new territory, but things will get sorted out. We’re working with new materials, new energies, new parameters with the virus, new people, new locations, and everyone is adjusting. 

► The most exciting aspect of 2021 is Jupiter sextile the Galactic Center three times! Earth Day April 22, Aug 20 and Dec 12 – Twelve Twelve! Jupiter will consult with the gods and goddesses of the heavens! The GC is the center of our Galaxy, the Milky Way. Jupiter, the far traveler, has no problem with such a journey, especially while in Aquarius, the very sign of the heavens, stars and flight! Jupiter is associated with Sagittarius, the home of the GC! Perfect combination, and how apropos to the Aquarian emphasis at this time! Jupiter will be our emissary, a generally broad minded planet with a huge perspective, a gift to discover possibilities of the future! The GC will not fail to transmit, infuse, present magnificent infinite consciousness stirring insights and instruction. We have three chances to take it in, grow with it. The Galactic Center is at 27 Sagittarius 09. If you have factors in your chart that match up within 5 degrees of that 27th degree, you will be called. Unlike with fixed stars, only 1 degree usually allowed, the Galactic Center is HUGE! If you are involved with meditation, circles, consciousness raising groups, if ever there was a time to tune in, it is NOW!

Paul O. Hewit writes: “it is probably the second strongest spot in any astrology chart, following the Sun. It is a stunning source of energy, motivation, and aspiration. The Galactic Center is the Sun of our Sun. It is the source of most of the gravitational energy present in our galaxy, and probably the source of most of the energy in any chart, transformed through our own Sun.” [Some say the GC IS the strongest factor in our charts!] It moves only a degree every 72 years, so you can easily get the degree it was when you were born. Have your astrologer calculate its exact position for you.

 

2022 Aspects in Leo’s year – the only 2022 Aspects and they only happen once each!

All three of 2022’s aspects are done by May 3, in just over 4 months! All will be formed while Jupiter is in Pisces. The rest of the year will be putting our discoveries into practice, holding and maintaining good ground gained. Jupiter in Pisces and Aries will show us the endings and dreams of Pisces as the last sign of the Zodiac, and the beginnings Aries will work for. It will be good to stretch our physical and spiritual muscles and take action! 

Feb 17 Jupiter in Pisces sextile Uranus in Taurus Once

This is the last of the Aquarius/Uranus aspects that prevailed from Dec 2020, throughout 2021! Time for celebration and pledges to the future!

Two fast planets in differently tempoed signs Pisces and Taurus. Jupiter loves races and often has the long legs to win! Uranus is the genius with the greased lightning mind! Pisces has an adjustable speed potential, like a fast swimmer, the speedboat or yacht race, but is also the meditator like the Buddha that sat by the road for years…enjoys the silence at the ashram, or the roar of a rock concert! Lot’s of dimensional ability. Taurus has no intention of rushing about. He has his own steady pace, enjoys sitting peaceably. He’s not lured into undignified behavior.

Jupiter and Uranus’s works are cut out for them. They will speed up the others. They also learn that sitters and plodders are getting quite a bit done with a lot less external energy being shown. They just do it. Pisces finds the shortest route and uses psychic ability to do it. Taurus is sensible and doesn’t worry. He sits with it and the plan forms with his patience. It’s uncanny. They both come up with solutions that are off the books. They think for themselves. At times the fast planets lose themselves in the fray and have to stop, come to their senses, recenter, restart where it all went awry. Sometimes needs require a faster tempo. At those times let the speedy planets guide you. They do have our well being in mind. Pass the baton back and forth!

April 12 Jupiter conjunct Neptune in his own sign Pisces Once

Jupiter in Pisces is the same as Jupiter Conjunct Neptune. Pisces is Neptune’s sign and Neptune is currently IN Pisces, his own sign! Please read Jupiter in Pisces! But! Jupiter right there with Neptune most certainly ups the amps very specifically! Jupiter with Neptune in this potency comes by only every 13 years! 

This the big event while Jupiter is in Pisces! In fact, this is a rather special conjunction. Robert P. Blaschke says ‘2009 has also brought the alignment of Jupiter and Neptune in the sign of Aquarius. [2022 it’s in Pisces, the next sign.] Conjunctions of these two planets take place at 13-year intervals and every thirteenth conjunction recurs at nearly the same Zodiacal position. Neptune’s sidereal cycle averages 165 years and the Jupiter-Neptune conjunctions divide the Neptune cycle into 13 sub-periods (13 x 13 = 169).’ 

Blaschke further writes, ‘As Neptune moves from one sign to the next, eleven out of twelve times it meets Jupiter only once while transiting a sign. Dane Rudhyar and Alexander Ruperti both wrote that the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction is the high-point of Neptune’s stay in any given sign.See more

Neptune, Pisces, work with spiritual matters, soul saving, dire conditions. It might be saving children in sweat shops, cruel conditions for inmates or mental patients, needed health reforms. Jupiter is the ethical planet that wants justice and has no fear of legal necessities. Knowing this in advance gives us all a heads up that we are in coming to a prime time to work in behalf of merciful repairs. Take courage. If you can’t do it yourself, find and fund a proven champion to work in your behalf. Please.  

Alexander Ruperti says ‘The number 13 refers to the Christ principle and as such is the symbol of the power to overcome death and limitations on all planes … Therefore, in essence, the Jupiter-Neptune cycle gives mankind a basic rhythm of and describes its urge toward transcendence.’ 13 is considered by some to represent a Gateway of the Soul.

In our daily affairs, Jupiter may exaggerate with no hope for reason, LOL! Pisces is perfectly happy with this, his magical side is cheering him on, it’s an exciting yarn! Pisces has dreams and Jupiter sees no reason why they can’t come true! The two of them can be utterly mischievous together! Jupiter can sometimes get all ethical and abhors addictions that disable. He looks for ways to help his mates stand clean again, to be strong for their futures, to make the world a better place. Your intuition may surge to overwhelming dimensions, you have never had visions like this before! Thank goodness the conjunction is between the Sun and Saturn in good aspect. Saturn will help anchor the events and build what’s needed.   

May 3 Jupiter in Pisces sextile Pluto in Capricorn Once

The one with the answers walks among us. Some are invisible, some seen ordinary, others really are simply easily sneaky. This can be a super wealth aspect, it just comes upon us though Pisces doesn’t always care about money at all. It can be a cure for old age ailments. Just do what you love and profound healings occur. Time for dreams to become true through laws ala the Right of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. An obscure place or peoples, maybe an indigenous group, become especially important. An extinct animal may reappear or come from frozen wastelands. Maybe you will find the work of your soul! There are many extreme, extremely valuable possibilities that could come with this combination. Pay attention; look below the surface… Be careful not to put your hands or feet where you can’t see…

2022 Sign Changes

The only planet changing signs is Jupiter. He previewed Pisces briefly from May 13 to July 28 2021. In 2022 Jupiter starts in Aries May 10 after his sextile with Pluto. Jupiter retrogrades back into Pisces Oct 27 to Dec 20, a last chance affair, then its onward in Aries, the sign of new beginnings, no going back! The next day is Winter Solstice, the belly of winter. From there are the seeds of new beginnings, the ‘return of the Light!’ See more Jupiter in Pisces

It’s one thing to make your vows in Pisces, another to take action in Aries! Pisces is what you believe in. Some say ‘Do not ask God to guide your footsteps if you are not willing to move your feet.’ The last sign, Pisces carries the Dream of all the signs. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, the first responders. Initiation means more than taking a title. It means doing your vows. Aries are brave leaders, risk takers, rights fighters. They often have to make instant decisions to save lives. They are fiery Spirits that operate on instant instinct. Consulting is one of their best talents. Listen keenly. Ask your questions right now while they are there with you. They will be gone to the next fire quickly. Staying physically fit is essential and can be totally enjoyable. Prowess feels super! Independence is strong. Ride your bike!

Jupiter is looking for purpose with integrity! It takes a core truth and educates as many as will listen to why it is meaningful and worthy. Jupiter has a bold and confident way, expands, embellishes, emphasizes, gives extra! It’s edifying, LOL! Jupiter likes to play and tell whopper stories, have a great big dog and ride the winning horse! In Aries a lot of ground will be traveled in a short time, and quickly too! Speed is a delight. Records will be broken! Skating, surfing, skiing! Wow!   

The Galactic Center/GC, Algol and Pluto!

All three of these are dark characters! The GC is a gigantic black hole! Algol has a dark reputation, ie beheadings, when your lights go out. Pluto is the furthest planet from the Sun, the darkest and frozen to boot!

Fixed star ALGOL and the GC are in lockstep! Each being star factors, they each take 72 years to move a degree. Currently Algol is at 26 Taurus and the GC is 27 Sag. Whenever one is activated, so is the other. Algol and the GC have an oblique position (inconjunct), aware, but out of the corner of your eye. That position is common in the charts of psychics. They see peripheral factors that influence the outcome. Inconjuncts sometimes lead you on a goose chase, but maybe to greener pastures. You do get a greater perspective. Even if you go back home, you are different. You have perhaps made new friends and associates that can carry that sector for you. Excellent adjustments are in the offing. Destination Algol would not usually be a conscious choice, but sometimes it is part of our Path and it just happens. Square your shoulders and do it, eyes wide open. Fascinating encounter.

Algol is the baddest Star according to some! It is a rare triple star and eclipsing binary, which means it blinks, and changes brightness, even ‘disappears!’ It is the Medusa’s Head, carried in the left hand of the Hero, Perseus. On the dark side, ‘It causes misfortune, violence, decapitation, hanging, electrocution and mob violence, and gives a dogged and violent nature that causes death to the native or others. It is the most evil star in the heavens.’ Some say it’s not the ‘bad’ within us but pushing through blockages to the beauty beyond is what really matters. We can face our demons with sincere intent and life changes for the better! See more!  See more about the spiritual side…

Algol’s bad rep, strikes fear in a lot of hearts, but so does the GC when people find out it is one gigantic black hole!!! You could vanish in an instant! You astral travelers might should be careful? I like to think of Algol as the GC’s Guardian. Algol is considered to be a super powerful feminine force. It would take such an entity to protect the mighty GC! They have an askew, inconjunct relationship, on opposite sides of the chart but off center. It’s the road less followed, so to speak. There is a draw to explore. Algol is ready to stomp her feet and ‘invite’ you to travel, or takes you another place once the GC’s info has been bestowed, a place that needs the information the most. 

Many give Algol a wide berth, plan wisely astrologically. Astrologers often allow 5 degrees for the effective range with Algol while most stars get only 1 degree range. If in neighboring signs, only 3 or less degrees might be used. If you have chart factors in that 5 degree range, one way or another you are connected with Algol. If you have questions, do see your astrologer.

Pluto is now at 24/25° Capricorn and moves only 3° a year. Pluto retrogrades back and forth through the degrees as it travels Capricorn. Anytime it is between 23 Cap 27 to 29 Cap 27, it will trine Algol. That period started Feb 2020, virus time, and will go through Jan 2024. It is now continuously trine Algol. Exact trines are formed 5 times: on Spring Equinox Mar 20, & June 5, 2021, and in 2022 Jan 17, 2022, Aug 29, Nov 16. 

Pluto has been having the Algol experience, and is one of the few who can stand up under this trial. Very luckily, the trine is the most favorable angle, so though not unscathed, he survives. Both Pluto and Algol are respected and incur life and death situations. One hopes the trine bends the relationship with Algol to a more satisfactory outcome. Earth signs are a bit ‘indelible.’ Their effects are more long lasting. Keep turning the tables on Algol’s bad rep. Stay calm in the face of violence, shift your connections so better can happen. Know your rights and choose safety unless/even if you are trying to save someone’s life. If you are the offender, get all the help you can to change. Many a fine leader has come from a dark place.

Local to Galactic, let’s work together for enhanced results!

Those of you with your Saturn’s from 10 to 25 Aquarius will be having your 28/9 year Saturn Returns in Leo’s year! 

Lunar patterns! Those of you with factors close to 12 degrees in your charts will be activated by 7 New Moons from Oct 2021 to March 2022. Jan and March 2022 will have two New Moons in Pacific time zone. For Full Moons the 27th degree (degree of Algol/GC/Pluto) will be activated 8 times Sep 2021 to April 2022. If you have factors at or 3 degrees of both 12 and 27, all those New and Full Moons will activate you in sequence through the signs! Set a goal and approach it progressively from every angle, every sign!

Aquarius/Leo Full Buck Moon!

Friday July 23, 1 Aquarius/Leo 26, Full Buck Moon at 7:37 PM Pacific!

Jupiter 0 Pisces Locomotive chart! Lead with your Heart, Work together!

Aquarius-Leo 2021 Full Buck Moon!
Leo’s first Full Moon is the second day of Leo! The second Full Moon is the last day of Leo at 5:02 AM Pacific, first day of Virgo, Sun into Virgo at 2:35 PM Pacific! This second Full Moon is called a Blue Moon, being the third of four Full Moons in the summer season!

Leo, the sign of the SUN, will be especially golden this year! Just two days before the second Full Moon, Jupiter retrogrades sextile the Galactic Center again! This Full Moon occurs in the glow of this super event! The HUGE GC is the Center of the magnificent Milky Way Starlight! The Full Moon opposition with Moon in Aquarius is especially brilliant and tuned in! Aquarius is the sign of electrical charge, Lightning, and STARS! Leo starts with bright light and ends with super light that surges forward lighting Virgo’s way with volumes of inspired projects!

This Buck Chart is a Locomotive type chart! Locomotives are known for keeping up the steam, pedaling right on down the road, gets things done! You can either jump aboard or be left behind to cheer them on their way. You can wish them well, cheer them again on their accomplishments upon their return! They aren’t afraid to try new ventures.

It’s own momentum carries it forward, but Venus in Virgo at the lead position, is working forward, keeps it going! Every detail is taken care of, your health improves, making it easy to to get there. Having passed in inconjunct, 150° relationship with Mother Moon In Aquarius, Venus is aware of how important the work is to us all. Aquarius may live in its head, but Virgo crafts the ideas into a fine tuned application for day to day practice. Venus loves what she does and she smooths the way for Virgo teams to collaborate and shows them how to put an attractive finishing touch on the package. Beauty and functionality at the right price!

Mars in Leo is right behind her putting his whole heart into cheering her on, keeping her moving yet relying on her medicinal prowess and dietary expertise for both of them! Mars keep the doors open behind her so others can follow too. He’s bright and quick, strong and inspiring. Once they follow him, he shows them Venus. She loves them right along, and they feel better than they ever have before!

Sure, Mars can be grumpy, demanding and uppity in Leo, but why not? He wants the best for you and he wants it now, LOL! He is super flirty at times, but appreciates what he sees! Good to be admired. Venus can seem selfish at times, but she’s an example. If she can do it and gets what she wants, even if it is silly and frivolous, so can we! All of us are on our way to something better.

Pluto is the power at the back door, the Ninja at the gateway! He guards the group from negative infiltration, filters forward letting the good stuff and people catching up to join the entourage. Pluto pushes from behind, healing the laggards, clearing their ability to take responsible action. Mars has just passed him, and is still looking over his shoulder (inconjunct), to see what the old Master thinks now… He has suggested Mars harness some of that wild energy, keep rested, avoid burnout. He knows if Mars disciplines his actions and keeps practicing, he will succeed, be a winner!

Mars is opposition with Jupiter at 0 PiscesThe prelude: Jupiter is retrograde, learning more about Pisces, finding himself in unusual depths. Mars in Leo is fiery. Jupiter is all wet in Pisces. Whoa! Mars will be looking from shore in earth sign Virgo! Should he leap in and rescue Jupiter, or is Jupiter just traveling yet another dimension, enjoying every possibility?! They converse across the waves, Jupiter revealing fantastic perceptions. Mars may shockingly find himself changing velocity abruptly, listening, then going away thoughtfully. Virgo is smart and efficient, the super organizer. The coming work may be extensive, but Jupiter is a good planner and Virgo easily figures what’s first and what follows! Astonishing results faster than anyone expected!

But due to Jupiter being so close to his return to Aquarius July 28, this experience of Mars with Jupiter in Pisces ends that day! Hope you make lots of notes. The opposition actually occurs with Jupiter in Aquarius on the 29th!!! Now it’s time to make those changes! Virgo will have her work cut out for her! The whole case has turned to a more humanitarian venue, planetary. Jupiter will bring in organizations he discovered when he was in AQ before. Climate matters will be near the top of the list. How to organize is a question we all need answered. A broader scope will be called for. Funding is needed ASAP. Electronics of all kinds will allow more to be accomplished, help to be sought from around the world, experiences shared for the best results.

Moon in Aquarius will see this coming and wants it! Right now she is conjunct fixed star Altair in the Aquila Constellation, keeping her sights high! Elsbeth Ebertin says ‘Altair, in the Eagle, also called the Flying Eagle, has a Mars character with a blend of Mercury and Jupiter. Tied with benefic stellar bodies, Altair is credited with bestowing hardiness, courage and generosity, especially if on the Ascendant. Altair is good for advancement of lawyers and military men.’ With the Moon, old doomsday astrologer Robson says ‘Interest in a strange or ancient discovery, disappointment and loss over property and gain, some profit and preferment, friends become enemies, trouble through companies or public affairs, difficulties through or misfortune to children.’ Sometimes there is a grain of truth in what the old timers said, so take note, be prepared, just in case. See more

At the New Moon August 8 Mother Moon will struggle to keep the work going. Too much unexpected intervention. She will have her second chance at the Blue Moon August 22.

Sun has just passed Jupiter from an inconjunct 150° position. He is making adjustments in his presentations, very impressed with the scope of Jupiter in Pisces care, from ocean athletes, seaside businesses, shipping and cruises, to matters of the Soul, the art of the world. It can be care for an addict, homeless, disabled, the abused, lack of civil rights of all kinds. Pisces is superlative at music, films, life changing entertainment. Sun  in his own bright Sign, is impressive at acting, brilliant shows, stunning as an educator! With an important purpose as his motivator, he is guided by spiritual intensity, has a purity that is palpable. He is touching and can bring tears to your eyes when you get it. Nothing like a little Light to wake you up good and proper.

Mercury in Cancer, sign of the Moon, with both intelligence and feelings working together, emphasizes the perception of what needs to be done. He trines Neptune the Pisces visionary planet. Jupiter can be all big and impressive, but for the more thoughtful and those less impressed by big, this Mercury has awareness of daily needs of the people involved, realistic finances, the time it really takes, sharing comfort. There may be hidden or subtle meanings, a further assortment of ideas that Jupiter may gloss over but Mercury puts his fingers on and puts into words. They can open more doors, and as Mercury speaks, others hear more of the inside gist of what Pisces is after. There are people and things to be saved, suffering reduced, better safe places to stay are needed. Comfort, nurturing and counseling, better health may be the underpinnings that turn the tables.

The threesome that have been working with us since the end of 2020 are still at it. They are separated a bit now, but still in awareness of each other. Saturn is 10 AQ, Chiron is 12 Aries, Uranus is at 14 Taurus. They will connect again in Nov/Dec 2021. Until then, they are simmering on the back burner.

Have a brilliant first Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo! Make changes you have long wanted to!

Aquarius/Leo Full Buck Moon Astrology Chart!

Aquarius-Leo 2021 Full Buck Moon Astrology Chart!


Leo New Moon

Sunday August 8, 16 Leo 14,6:50 AM Pacific! 

Frisky Leo New Moon sextile Rigel, Jupiter back in Aquarius! Soulmate Love is on the Table!

Milky Way and Perseids 2021 Leo New Moon

Milky Way and Perseids! Alamy Stock Photo at New York Post

Good viewing for 2021 Perseids Meteor Shower! It will probably produce the greatest number of meteors on the mornings of August 11, 12 and 13. Perseid meteors usually start streaking the sky around July 17. We’ll see Perseids for 10 days or so after the peak mornings, so keep watch before and after! If fortune smiles upon you, the evening hours might offer you an earthgrazer – a looooong, slow, colorful meteor traveling horizontally across the evening sky. More at Earth Sky

Moon and Sun in Leo are double frisky with fixed star Rigel at 16 Gemini 50! We know Rigel, one of the bright stars in the Orion constellation! With Sun, according to Robson, who is usually pretty glum, ‘It gives benevolence, honor, riches, happiness, glory, renown and inventive or mechanical ability.’ In another excerpt, author uncited, ‘…a quick rise in life is promised on account of a strong, inherent will power, love of action, and a lucky hand in enterprise. A continuous battle to retain an acquired position has to be waged. This fight at the same time stimulates an increase in vigor. Even in spite of unhelpful aspects, success and reaching the set aim can be secured by this powerful concentration. If however the native is not cautious or has an attack of weakness, failure and disappointments, a fall from success will follow. Tradition regarding the influence of Rigel is quite contradictory, implying again that the cosmogram must be fully analyzed. After the first world war, at the time of the first transatlantic flights, Elsbeth Ebertin noted a connection of Rigel to the Sun and Moon, in charts of several world record pilots, leading to sudden difficulties in the carrying out of planned enterprises resulting in failures to reach the set target.’  See more

August 8, 8-8, is an intriguing number set, double 8s, the infinity symbol on its side. Leo has an infinite quality, in that the Sun is always shining, even during an eclipse, a temporary affair after all. Clouds or night, the Sun shines above the clouds, and always somewhere on Earth. Sunlight takes 8 minutes to get here. Light is infinite. The starlight of billions of Suns light our nights and shine in our days though we can’t see them.

Couple’s hearts and parent to child are bound in infinite love and caring as the two loops of the 8 hold them, each separate and respectfully individual, equal. The Teacher cares for the student as the Healer cares for the patient. The Guardian cares for the protégé as a business person cares for his client. And all the students, patients, protégés and clients equally help the helpers! Even negative karmic bonds are formed and worked through – attacker/thief to victim, dealer to addict, jailer to inmate, kidnapper to captive. All the bonds we have are the work of our Soul.

In astrology, Scorpio is the 8th Sign. As Leo is romance, Scorpio is until Death do us part. Both demand faith and dedication. Leo gives the rings and celebration; Scorpio gives the deepest in most intimate bonding. Feng Shui uses the 8 sided Bagua. 8 is the atomic number for oxygen, the breath of life required for survival. Eight has had magical meaning in many religions throughout history. See more

The Cancer and Leo New Moons are special because the Cancer one is Mother Moon in her own sign emphasizing Cancerian unconditional LOVE. August 8th’s New Moon the Sun is in his own sign LEO, emphasizing appropriate Self Love, Heart LOVE. In general, Cancer absorbs and expresses feelings according to her family traditions while Leo expresses his own independent feelings, creates.

On a fine New Moon night, things are blended, no Moonlight or shadows. There is a certain equality as the playing field is equalized. It seems more quiet, even subdued, without the contrasts and sharp edges. Sleep can be deeper. Even if there is a breeze, there are no moving shadows…

The Sun squared wild card factor Uranus Friday the 6th; Moon makes the same square at 4:04 AM Pacific just before the New Moon. They could have brought an ‘accidental’ component or a possibly shocking sudden discovery. Friendships or an important affiliation may have ended, that you may feel more at the New Moon. Yet the primary edge is off and you may also be relieved. Time to break free and do it more clearly on your own terms. Sometimes that quiet New Moon blending smooths the way.

Mercury in Leo is Yod Neptune and Pluto, making a Y with them. He has just passed Neptune in Pisces, got the lowdown about who’s suffering and why, what can be done and when. Leo is gallant and plays the gallant knight in shining armor role very well. His bright style gets the word out. Inspiring, soon many want to help.

Mercury in Leo adds a little pepper to the mix. He has opinions and may make a performance of speaking them, LOL, after all, they are important, of course! And good chance they are this time. Mercury is maybe a little hypnotized by Pluto in Capricorn, of strong reputation and community standing. Leo likes being on the winning side. Or, Mercury, thinking for himself stands up to him! It could be embarrassing, fools do rush in, or he may be the hero of the day. About time someone did that! Anyway, Pluto puts some important things on the table that may have been long overlooked.

Next up, Mercury will be across the table from Jupiter in Aquarius! Jupiter has volume that Leo likes! They could be a speaking duo telling stories of phenomenal deeds, changes that were made against the odds! They might vie for prominence, but if they collaborate we all will benefit! Aquarius wants the best for the whole planet. There are amazing numbers of ways to do it! Bring out the computers for a mighty round table meeting! The Venus in Virgo faction will want video documentation and Mars in Virgo will give useful introductions of the leaders.

A lot will be stirred up since this is a Seesaw Chart, planets on both sides of the chart. The New Moon and Mercury also in Leo, along with our Mars and Venus in Virgo, stand powerfully to one side. The other planets are spread out on the other side. Oppositions are common energy to Seesaws. Mercury opposite Jupiter, rulers of the 3rd and 9th houses, mind and purpose, are well synchronized! Venus in Virgo is opposite Neptune, love and Soul, Soulmate! Virgo is particular, and it’s important this time because Neptune can be a chameleon, good guy/bad guy, and possibly not knowing which himself, likely humanly both, as many of us are… No running away elopement style this time. Give it the allotted time recommended to test the relationship.

As business goes, Virgo can be of great help to sometimes fuzzy minded Neptune. Neptune could be sweet on Venus and really listen. At last there is order and some good priorities set. Venus could be too stuffy for words in Virgo, thinking in all those little square accounting style boxes. Neptune may charm her right onto his yacht, or make music and love like she has never experienced. She may break all the rules, her own included. She may find she was bored or boring, but that sure is changing. The Soul calls like the Preacher in the Wilderness! She didn’t know what she had been missing… Hmm…rather than feeling entitled, she may come to appreciate what true hard work is as she sees real suffering through Neptune’s eyes.

At the same time, the sweet earthy herbal scent of this New Moon is Venus in Virgo, a young lovely lass, trine Pluto in the sign of old man Capricorn. Virgo knows how to do the books and knows whether the investment is proven. If Pluto is being stodgy, Venus shows him the up-to-date figures. There may be a hidden, but successful, May to December romance in the offing. Venus in Virgo is is a powerful healer at work, streamlining affairs for long term production, whether your health or business, both. It’s a clever combination to get retirement information, make some realistic plans, consider wise percentages, make decisions.

Mars in Virgo wants to take action, yet is coming upon an inconjunct with Saturn in Aquarius. There may be some further considerations about to be revealed, that will make a more broad choice available, bring a delay for good reason, starts a new relationship with an experienced expert that saves a ton of money. Scout around to see what other options have come along. By the time Mars comes to trine Uranus the 21st, the day before the Full Blue Moon, you will likely be glad you waited. You will have a good new friend or a solid friend from the past reappears.

Many 2021 factors have an Aquarian component. We are preparing for Pluto’s entry into Aquarius in 2023. We are more aware now that some connections need reworking, fixing. Some ideas have long term implications worth working for and are financially productive! Make notes then network like crazy to get more ideas to complete the package, select who will work together, and get it rolling! See Saturn in Aquarius Saturn is open to new areas of responsibility. Chiron is livening him with the latest healing and teaching ideas! Jupiter is back in Aquarius jazzing up Saturn’s prospects!

Pluto Trine Fixed Star Algol 26 Taurus 27 in 2020 – 2024

Pluto is of Scorpio, the sign opposite Algol’s sign Taurus, but Pluto now in Capricorn gentles that opposition because Pluto Capricorn trines, favors Algol. Pluto rules death and rebirth while Algol is considered to bear misfortune, often death. They understand each other. Neither is to be messed with. Capricorn is noted for facing reality squarely.

Algol is the baddest Star according to some! It is a rare triple star and eclipsing binary, which means it blinks, and changes brightness, even ‘disappears!’ It is the Medusa’s Head, carried in the left hand of the Hero, Perseus. On the dark side, ‘It causes misfortune, violence, decapitation, hanging, electrocution and mob violence, and gives a dogged and violent nature that causes death to the native or others. It is the most evil star in the heavens.’ Some say it’s not the ‘bad’ within us but pushing through blockages to the beauty beyond is what really matters. We can face our demons with sincere intent and life changes for the better! See more!

Many give Algol a wide berth, plan wisely astrologically. Astrologers often allow 5 degrees for the effective range with Algol while most stars get only 1 degree range. If you have chart factors in that 5 degree range, one way or another you are connected with Algol. If you have questions, do see your astrologer.

Pluto is now at 25° Capricorn and moves only 3° a year. Pluto retrogrades back and forth through the degrees as it travels Capricorn. Allowing a 3 degree range, anytime Pluto is between 23 Cap 27 to 29 Cap 27, it will trine Algol at 26 Taurus 27. That period started Feb 2020 – virus time, and will go through Jan 2024. It is now continuously trine Algol. Exact trines are formed 5 times: on Spring Equinox Mar 20, & June 5, 2021, and in 2022 Jan 17, 2022, Aug 29, Nov 16.

One hopes the trine, a good aspect, bends the relationship with Algol to a more satisfactory outcome. Earth signs are a bit ‘indelible.’ Their effects are more long lasting. Keep turning the tables on Algol’s bad rep. Recent violence, covid deaths, may leave raw feelings of grief, bitterness, betrayal. Freedom is still at issue. Stay calm in the face of violence, shift your connections so better can happen, turn a page, try out some new possibilities. Know your rights and choose safety unless/even if you are trying to save someone’s life. If you are the offender, get all the help you can to change. Many a fine leader has come from a dark place.

Pluto understands much of this. Capricorn often has working answers to bring us back together in common cause. Be safe and be well. Tread gently. Get all the facts before you pass judgment. Steady in the Light.

Algol’s connection with the Galactic Center!

Algol and the GC are in lockstep! Each being star factors, they each take 72 years to move a degree. Currently Algol is at 26 Taurus and the GC is 27 Sag. Whenever one is activated, they both are. Algol and the GC have an oblique position (inconjunct), aware, but out of the corner of your eye. That position is common in the charts of psychics. They see peripheral factors that influence the outcome. Inconjuncts sometimes lead you on a goose chase, but maybe to greener pastures. You do get a greater perspective. Even if you go back home, you are different. You have perhaps made new friends and associates that can carry that sector for you, or be a link to that sector when you need it. Excellent adjustments are in the offing. Destination Algol would not usually be a conscious choice, but sometimes it is part of our Path and it just happens. Square your shoulders and do it, eyes wide open. Fascinating encounter.

Oh, yes, Algol strikes fear in a lot of hearts, but so does the GC when people find out it is one gigantic black hole!!! You could vanish in an instant! You astral travelers might should be careful? I like to think of Algol as the GC’s Guardian. Algol is considered to be a super powerful feminine force. It would take such an entity to protect the mighty GC! Algol is ready to stomp her feet and ‘invite’ you to travel, or takes you another place once the GC’s info has been bestowed, a place that needs the information the most.

New Moon 8.8.2021 happens to be the LUCKY Lion’s Gate Portal! Leo Sun and the bright star Sirius are in an annual cosmic alignment. In 2020 my spiritual artist friend Danielle Winter wrote:

i awoke on guru day (thursday) from a very beautiful amma related dream 💗 and then this morning on the 8*8 lions gate i awoke from a dream featuring my indian cow images along with the number 17 – which is so cool as 1 + 7 = 8 🌿 and in the tarot 17 is the Star card which talks about dreams and wishes coming true…just as the holy cow in mother india represents all that is auspicious and giving…🌿💗 thank you, 8*8 lions gate for gifting me with a dream…..🌿💗 and for giving me time with Amma today!

Good luck with LOVE! Tremendous opportunities are afoot!

Aquarius/Leo Full Sturgeon BLUE Moon!


Sunday August 22, 29 Aquarius/Leo 37, Full
Moon 5:02 AM Pacific!

Galactic Full Moon with Jupiter and Moon in Aquarius tuned to the Galaxy! Seesaw chart balances the light! FOUR planets in their own signs!  

Aquarius-Leo 2021 Full Sturgeon BLUE Moon!

I never thought I would say a Sturgeon was beautiful, but I’m changing my mind. It’s a pretty cool fish! The Native Americans chose well. Some Sturgeon are endangered and need stronger protection. Lake Sturgeon image by the Tennessee Aquarium

Leo’s first Full Moon was the second day of Leo! This second Full Moon is the last day of Leo at 5:02 AM Pacific, first day of Virgo, Sun into Virgo at 2:35 PM Pacific! This second Full Moon is called a Blue Moon, being the third of four Full Moons in the summer season!

Leo, the sign of the SUN, will be especially golden this year! Just two days before the second Full Moon, Jupiter retrogrades sextile the Galactic Center again! The GC is the Center of the magnificent Milky Way Starlight! This Full Moon occurs in the glow of this super event! Fire sign Leo, the Heart of Light, trines, most favorably aspects the GC. Leo puts a personal stamp on the situation and brightens the odds! This second Moon is steeped in messages more powerful than shooting stars! The GC is HUGE, and Jupiter is a natural born amplifier! The Full Moon opposition with Moon in Aquarius is especially brilliant and tuned in! Aquarius is the sign of electrical charge, Lightning, and STARS! Aquarius is the sign of the Galaxies, so is a natural receiver of these energies! We’ve got it covered! Leo starts with bright light and ends with super light that surges forward lighting Virgo’s way with volumes of inspired projects!

The Sun, 29 Leo 37, is also conjunct fixed star Regulus, the King of the Heavens, Heart of the Lion, leader of the Four Royal Stars of the ancient Persian monarchy, the Four Guardians of Heaven! Quite a pedigree. Yes, Regulus is now at 0 Virgo, but let’s not forget where he came from, Leo, LOL! Regulus is one of the 15 Behenian stars, considered especially useful for magical applications. When Regulus is good, it is very, very good! Regulus is one of the most fortunate stars in the heavens. It portends glory, riches, and power to all who are born under its influence. See more at Astrology King, including people born with connections to it! What a grand finale to Leo 2021!

As with the New Moon, this chart pattern is a Seesaw as well, with Sun and Moon on opposite sides. Sun is still glorious, at his peak at his last degree of Leo, fully mature, powerful! He is with Mars and Mercury in Virgo, and Venus in Libra! Sun, Mercury and Venus are all potently in their own signs! Moon is 29 Aquarius just past magnificent Jupiter, but in a spread of planets from Capricorn to Taurus. Neptune is in his own sign too, so this chart has FOUR planets in their own signs!

The honorable 29th degree is called an anaretic degree. It is a degree of completion and endings. It is exultant and sad too, to be leaving, perhaps leaving friends behind. It is skilled and a little scared perhaps to go into a place of new beginnings, unknowns. It may be you are glad it’s done, you so done, bored, can’t wait to get on with things! There is a sense of finality, perhaps futility, even fatefulness. There’s no going back at this point, what’s done is done. The heavens move on with us or without us! Head up, be ready to apply your talents to new options! Good chance you will be delighted and proud of yourself!

Jupiter is back in Aquarius, so there are multitudes of ways to make new connections with all kinds of special friends to share talents with! Virgo is next, so there will be critiques and demands for excellence. Virgo is skilled at on-the-job type of showing the way. They will help you with the details that make your work shine! Budgeting may make the difference in your finances. You will be encouraged to take the best care of your health. After your Leo escapades a little rest might be perfect. Breathe deep, be steady, take it as it comes. Jupiter will propose many projects. Choose priorities that make your heart sing.

Sun in Leo‘s job is to be self aware, shine his Light. He sees the incredible advantage of individuality, how each person’s contribution is a special offering. He learns to love with all his heart, to praise himself and others too. Leo shares, both generous gifts and when to let others have the spotlight! It’s their turn.

Moon in Aquarius nurtures the networks! She intuitively guides the right people to work together for mutual cause. She helps with community awareness, finances. Remarkably talented women are brought to public awareness, lead the initiative. Aquarius is inventive, researches future well being, methods and devices that make significant changes for our children’s lives to come. Freedom of spirit allows creativity to flourish. Moon looks for the best of the best, and Leo is often drafted!They have both been charged up by Jupiter in electric Aquarius! Jupiter has opened the boundaries, multiplied by some large number! Jupiter wants to take their ideas traveling with him, and they are glad for his lucky perspectives and plans! There was an overwhelming enjoyment in the wildness of it all, and now the top priorities are being carried along on their paths as well!

Mercury in Virgo wants the whole show to be organized and funded. The books have to balance. Jupiter’s ideas may have inspired new connections that will get it done. Mercury is opposite Neptune. They rule opposite signs, Virgo and Pisces. Virgo is so aware of precision, quality. Neptune can be too. Some of the most remarkable music of all time touches our Soul exactly because of a nuance that sets it apart from the average or mediocre. Neptune can be careless – not in a bad way, but in a free way, exploring the outer fringes of consciousness, not ruled by money… Virgo can slide along with him, somehow knowing it will be ok. It’s clear Neptune has been there before… Insights, visions of how to save ourselves, can become apparent. Things Pisces can ‘see,’ Virgo can make happen. Blessed be.

Pluto at 24 Capricorn, has recently been traveling more closely along in sextile with Neptune again. Depending on the orb, range, you use, they do so for 76 years from 1948 to 2029! You could say ok, so? In this chart Mercury is connected with Neptune, then trine Pluto, so it matters. Neptune is spirituality, our second out most planet, 168 yr orbit. Pluto is the outlier, 248 yr orbit. Orbits being elliptical, they are traveling at about the same speed now, they are in sync, a long term exchange happening. Mercury may have particular understanding. Neptune has compassion; Pluto will clear you, removes poisons. Pluto is everything from birth, to death, rebirth. It’s healing as psychic surgeon to therapist to financial counselor saves us. Mercury’s connection may bring poignant awareness that makes us see the deep importance of our choices.

Mercury was just over Mars, the action leader! In an earth sign, they part out the projects, get skilled people to work the different aspects. Training is sought and, doing what they love and have passion for, they learn quickly. Mars favorably trines Uranus, the Aquarian planet, and is in sync with earth projects, climate needs, basic assets, steady changes. Mars cracks the whip and no one minds! Their team will be one of the first to get there!

Social Diva Venus in Libra, draws in blessed people to exquisitely adorn the accomplishments. Sales are inevitable. She treats all as equally as possible, sees the best they have to offer and when, what they need and want. Her timing is often impeccable! More people with purpose join. Mars and Mercury are right there backing her up, feeding her the latest information, specs. Everyone is collaborating, new projects now becoming possible due to their initial efforts.

Venus is inspired by Chiron in Aries across the chart from her! Chiron is ever impressive as a teacher/healer, but in Aries he leads the pack! The learning pace has picked up, new methods are tried quickly, discarded immediately if they fail. Things are moving right along in the health world. Venus sometimes gets trapped in not wanting to hurt people’s feelings, being nice. Kindness is one thing, but getting things done without ceremony has its place! Aries is a leader and it’s important not to fetter his creative work. First responders are in this category. Let them BE in front, clear the way for you!

Grand Air Trine! Venus is favorably trine Saturn in Aquarius! She is determined and he inspires her to be realistic. The profits are put back into the business, buy new tools, the latest computers and aps. Venus is also trine the Gemini North Node of the Moon! She is already graciously introducing people to each other, and also giving them the information they need to help them think things through. Saturn applies some filters and keeps things on point. No time waster him.


A little more about the magnificent Sturgeon! The Native Americans in their area named this time of year for them because the giant sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this part of summer. The word “sturgeon” means “the stirrer,” which is what this giant prehistoric looking fish does with its ‘whiskers’ when it is looking for food; it stirs up the mud and silt on river and lake bottoms.

Females require around 20 years to start reproducing, and they can only reproduce every 4 years. However, they can live up to 150 years! In times past their common size was like the recent 6-foot-10-inch, 240-pound female that was found, quickly studied and released. These days that’s a rare find and they are endangered due to intense overfishing in the 19th century, pollution, and damage to their habitat.. See more
