Mercury Retrograde 2016 Sagittarius Capricorn Astrology Switzerland Switchbacks Furza

Furka Pass, Switzerland, was used as a location in the James Bond film Goldfinger. From Twisted Sifter, LOL!

In some areas switchbacks are a necessity. Retrogrades as we know them astrologically are forward, back, forward. The same degrees are covered three times. They may be in one sign or lap over two signs, the end of one, beginning of the other. This time we have the last two degrees of Fire sign Sagittarius and the first 15, half, of Earth sign Capricorn. Sagittarius is the last fire sign, important for inspiration, purpose. It has the rainbow arc far seeing vision, can be wise; Capricorn is the mountain goat, and together they go!

Gaining ground or getting down! Sagittarius and Capricorn will usually choose up and down switchbacks as they cross country, no fear of heights. Sagittarian long striding legs just want to see what’s up there, see the views! Capricorn shorter legs have the surefooted goatly stamina, love the terrain, the crisp feel of the cool air, a keen sense of achievement, like maybe Everest! Both love a good scramble! Winter sports are grand, and climbing, cycling, skiing!

Each direction and level gives a different view, vantage point. But these are to be observed, incorporated, as we go along. We do get stalled at the 8 day direction change points (retrograde and direct stations), giving us a breather, a time to contemplate, assimilate, gather resolve, refocus. But is isn’t for long. Mercury Retrograde is only one of the simultaneous planetary happenings, and it is swept along, tussled and tumbled, a rolling stone, bumping into others, impelled to share what it has seen and learned. And, of course, it never stopped going forward in the sky anyway! It is a viewpoint that occurs because of the Earth, Mercury, Sun relationship as a faster planet moves past a slower planet. Nor is it unusual, happens 3 to 4 times every year, giving 18% of us Mercury Retrograde in our birth charts – thinkers, fact checkers, sometimes learning difficulties.

Mercury is information matters. What you learn, how you learn, how you communicate. There comes the paperwork and contracts, keypads, computers, cells. Mercury Rx does 180s on you, mixes up appointments, the electronics go fritz, there are often misunderstandings as things change quickly.  Confirm appointments.

The Mercury Retrograde Cycle starts Dec 1. The Retrograde dates are Dec 19 to Jan 8, Christmas and New Year! It finishes the whole cycle Jan 27, 2017. Prepare in advance!

Sagittarius is pretty much a forward moving fire sign, but Capricorn minds the time and makes sensible precautions, does due diligence. Gear and autos are given their maintenance in advance, batteries purchased. They line up experts that may possibly be needed. Timing may be critical before winter storms, so they are mindful of weather reports, choose their itinerary carefully. Consultations are recorded, any changes are dated and initialed. If purchases are made during the Rx cycle Cap gets the warrantee.

Sagittarius is generally pretty confident of choices, but we all know about procrastination when something just doesn’t sit right. Time will tell, and at times, no choice being the choice. Sag matters may be where to move, if to move over the holidays. Those of you with chart factors in the last three degrees of mutable signs Gemini, Virgo, Pisces, or especially Sagittarius, this year, if you can wait, move after Mercury goes forward Jan 8. Have your astrologer do your AstroLocality as soon as you can, and select the best timing for your move. If you must move, get something temporary, wait to get furnishings until it is a more permanent situation. There may also be concerns about where and if to go to school. Stories may change as information is gathered, opinions may morph as we come across better ways. Let it flow.

Capricorn deals with reality. While Mercury is Rx this time you with factors from 0 to 18  in the cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra and especially Capricorn, will likely have the most changes. Capricorn careers may shift – more holiday work, get laid off, or a new job that doesn’t turn out as expected. Stay well rested. Real estate may figure in. If you can’t wait to sell, be sure to use an experienced realtor. You may find yourself given notice to move. Papers about sciences could change, facts repudiated, segments lost. Backup everything as you go! Parental responsibilities, especially of Fathers, may be challenged or mended. Youth or being a senior could be a benefit or cause for concern. People from your past may swing by again. Remember why it didn’t work before, but check in to see if they have new valuable information. Knees, skin and bones need protection, be careful. Breakdowns may happen, the holiday mentals or while traveling. Keep, extra food, water, thermal gear, a space blanket on board.

This rephrasing Mercury brings, keeps our mind working, our attention shifting. Excellent changes and opportunities are possible. Stay alert. It is concurrent with the four outer planet aspects that are happening intensely over only seven days at Christmas time, Dec 24, 26, 28/29, and 31! I’m calling these the Holiday Four, and there is a fifth aspect that is quite close at that same time! See more

Whatever happens, keep the long term in mind, keep an open mind. What may at first appear to be a problem may resolve in an unexpected way that you are grateful for later. Deliberately put Retrograde techniques into your life! Turn around and look back from time to time. Change the level of your vantage point. Look out further than your usual perimeter. Stand still until you really see.

Happy Birthdays, Sagittarians!

Sagittarius Britney Spears - 4 Planets in Sag: Sun, Uranus, Mercury, Neptune

FOUR planets in Sagittarius – Uranus, Mercury, Sun, Neptune! December 2, 1981 Britney Spears has got that friendly Sagittarian smile! She cares about the world. She sings little girl to vixen. Music is her game. See her chart!

She started as a childstar, with continued successes until 2007/8. Drugs, discordancy, divorce, had their toll and she come under the conservatorship of her father (Saturn conjunct Pluto in Libra), lost custody of her sons, and shaved her hair off! Hard times. Forbes June 2010: ‘Not long ago, most of the entertainment world had written Britney Spears off as a celebrity flameout. But over the last year Spears logged the fifth highest-grossing tour in the world, bringing in $130 million in gross box office receipts by playing 98 dates. High-profile endorsement deals with Elizabeth Arden and Candies’ prove that the public expects Spears to stay in the spotlight for good.’

Since then, a true Sagittarian, she has come back! Sagittarians are noted for their resiliency, optimism, faith, hope, getting beyond limitations, being clean. She’s been down, she’s been up. As Victoria Pavlova says, ‘no matter how bad the breakdown, there’s always a way up.’ Plus, besides being a wealth factor, Jupiter in Scorpio specializes in resurrection, is charismatic, great for comebacks!

Britney has won award after award, made glamorous record breaking stats, stunning financial successes, has one of those Hollywood stars in the sidewalk. In 2013 she began the four-year residency show, Britney: Piece of Me, at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. In 2016, Spears released her ninth studio album, Glory.

She was inspired by many, her top three being Madonna, Janet Jackson, and Whitney Houston. Huge stars. She in turn has inspired artists worldwide, with songs now written about her! She has inspired Gwyneth Paltrow’s acting, Trinidadian singer Nicki Minaj, singer, songwriter Lana Del Rey, triple Scorpio Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus, and on and on! At current time, she’s only 34/turning 35 shortly!

Alongside all that Sagittarian, Britney is strongly Aquarian! Controversial. Her Sun sextiles her Aquarian Moon. Her Mercury is conjunct the Aquarian planet Uranus! She’s brilliant, vivid, shocking, and definitely not the girl nextdoor! The world wasn’t quite ready for the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards aired live on August 28. That ceremony is best remembered for ‘Madonna’ kissing ‘Britney Spears’ and Christina Aguilera during the show’s opening performance! The cameras did a quick cut to Britney’s then boyfriend Justin Timberlake. You can imagine….

That same strong Aquarian nature also gives her a strongly philanthropic bent. Britney founded The Britney Spears Foundation to help children in need. The Foundation also supported the annual Britney Spears Camp for the Performing Arts. In April 2002, they made a grant of $1 million to the Twin Towers Fund to support the children of uniformed service heroes affected by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. She has done numerous benefit concerts and donations – for AIDS, Katrina, Music Rising, the St. Bernard Project, Madonna’s Kabbalah-based Spirituality for Kids, cancer charity Gilda’s Club Worldwide, Promises Foundation, United Way and more. She has contributed a good share.

Britney was raised a church going Southern Baptist. Well that all changed when her mentor Madonna came along. They studied the Kabbalah, a form of Jewish mysticism. Hinduism has been part of her path too. It’s possible that Spears took Hinduism quite seriously at one stage, reportedly attending “reincarnation sessions” with a Hindu psychic. And she has had between times, no particular faith at all. Sagittarians are always explorers, seekers.

Here’s the latest! Britney debuted the new music video for her sexy single, “Slumber Party” at midnight on Friday, Nov 18 and it didn’t disappoint.

2016-17 Celestial Highlights!

Orion Constellation Hunter Belt Celestial Bridge Mintaka

Orion is now our evening constellation rising in the East November & December. Its bright stars are Betelgeuse, and Rigel. The Aymara of Bolivia call the belt the Celestial Bridge. The top star is Mintaka, special because it sits almost directly astride the celestial equator – the projection of Earth’s equator onto the stellar sphere. From all over the world, Mintaka rises due east and sets due west, and remains in the sky for almost exactly 12 hours. When it shines at zenith (straight overhead), then you’re at the equator, the meeting place of the northern and southern skies. Thank you, Bruce McClure at EarthSky!

Sagittarius 2016/17 TimeLine!

October 23 started a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that will be the primary aspects of 2017! We have had Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Jupiter square Pluto is ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24!

That aspect leads a set of four aspects in a week that finishes up 2016! It will be a complex and exciting holiday season!

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. We are now in a period of adjustments, rebalancing with our new President. It will be a challenging time for many of us through Nov 2, 2017. Do your best with these six aspects. 2017 depends on it. Choose your battles, stay long term intentional, stay focused and don’t forget who you are.

2016/17 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Sagittarius!

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Perfect! Mid degree Sagittarians will be Pluto’s semisextile next door neighbor. Sagittarius precedes Capricorn, establishing the reason for all of Capricorn’s hard work. Current new perspectives, a new president, will change investment strategies, where you decide to live, how the world sits with the land Sagittarius hikes, rides or travels too. It’s time to come out of Scorpio/Pluto shadow land. Sagittarius will keep us looking up, out and beyond. There are benefits and consequences to be considered. Sagittarius is experienced in choosing wisely at the fork in the road. They have a great time and against odds, live to tell the story!

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Sagittarius is the rainbow arc, arrow in the air, sign. It rises above, and can often choose where it lands. Focus is key. Neptune has seen many rainbows at sea, in the foam on a wave. They have a dream, and Sagittarius can carry it forward, spread the message. There are confused moments when Pisces isn’t sure, lost even, when Sagittarius is scattered, but Neptune is super sensitive, and Sag stands tall to see further ahead. Even if they choose the ‘wrong’ Path, somehow it works out anyway to everyone’s surprise and happiness with unexpected benefits to boot! If Sag has become opinionated, judgemental, Neptune can show a more gentle compassionate side to things.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Sagittarius the roamer falls into step easily having met many unusual Beings. And no one is unhappy when either of them leaves. It’s a given. Uranus in Aries is a bit devil may care, even cavalier at times. If Sagittarius is bold and blunt, offends, it may be a bit crazy for awhile. If Sagittarius puts a positive spin on the over the top strange Uranian ideas or manner, we may have inventions sooner than later. Sag is a natural born educator. People trust them, and Sag has faith in that invention when no one else does. Can be a great team!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. It’s not always easy for a Sagittarian to do traditional business or marriage. But they do understand ethics of committing to a marriage. The right nomadic compatriot, or a partner who is happy to be home base, works. If Chiron invites Sag to a cruise business coupled with imports/exports, super! You can travel the world at home by owning the local beachside bed & breakfast or professoring at a coastal university with students from all over the world! Religious studies, anthropology, anything international has the scope that keeps you humming. It may be time for you to let go of confusion and step up to the plate!

Saturn travels from 16 to 27 degrees of Sagittarius now through Nov 2017. Those of you with your natal Saturn in those degrees of Sagittarius will be having your SATURN RETURNS! Saturn retrogrades over 21 to 27 degrees, so you with Saturn in those degrees will have a three time pass over your Saturn. Some people skip right through their Saturn Returns, others moan and groan, working hard to sort out their lives, it crimping their style for awhile. In Sagittarius it will concern professional matters, life Path choices, education, where to live, travel, religious and spiritual matters, securing your Faith, judgements of all kinds – for and against. Truth and trust will figure in keenly, ethics of blogs and storytelling, publishing. Who you will go with can seem a fateful decision. Take good care of yourself. Own the confidence you have earned, you have already come a long way.

Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof – their praise is well earned and means a lot. Saturn in Sagittarius is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Let that Sagittarian smile come through to ease the way! Knees may suffer from hard long Sag treks, but if you are lucky you may lose some weight around your hips! Be kind to your liver – eat healthy, get regular exercise, drink little alcohol. 

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire in Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Sagittarius wouldn’t have it any other way! Next! Libra loves cross cultural and Jupiter is Sag’s own planet. They have both traveled and could exchange notes, like this could just go on forever. They could travel together; both may support foreign exchange students. They may even have mutual friends and business connections at great distances! Libra is often beautiful, graceful, has superb balance, and Sag has an open friendly style, great at sports! Libra isn’t usually a gamer or better, but with Jupiter in its sign, and a Sagittarian hanging about, a few chances may be taken and some lotto tickets bought and the race won! Oh, and good luck at the dog show!

Happy Birthdays, Sagittarians! May your new year be blessed in every way!

 


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

Sagittarius, PathFinder!

Young Maasai giraffes at play, learning to use their long legs. Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya. By Travel Photographer Matt Wicks!

Young Maasai giraffes at play, learning to use their long legs. Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya. By Travel Photographer Matt Wicks!

Sagittarius – Big dogs, spirited horses, magnificent elephants, mighty moose, far traveling camels, far seeing giraffes!

Sagittarians sport infectious smiles and laughter, a twinkle in their eyes! The verve of one like December 10, 1830 Emily Dickinson: “To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.” Sagittarians have a indomitable vivacious Spirit! When the peddler comes to town, the children merrily follow, skipping and playing! Games will be played. Parents will buy them toys! The entertainment begins and goes long into the night time around the fire, wonderful stories to be told, news to be shared! Some may even follow the peddler out of town, off on an adventure that lasts a lifetime!

Chiron the healing and teaching centaur – half human, half horse, tutored the great heroes of Greece. Among his charges were non less than Achilles, Acteon, Jason and Hercules. Due to Chiron’s accidental wound, and immortality, he suffered greatly, learned about healing in great depth. Story has it as a baby, Aesculapius was given to centaur Chiron, a strange yet wise creature, half-human half-horse, who was famous for his skills in medicine. Chiron brought up Aesculapius and became his mentor. Aesculapius became the god of medicine, the one with the serpent on his Staff.

Whether it is a walking staff or a physician’s staff, it signifies being able to find your way, to live. It points direction, is a Pathfinder, a Seer. It looks far and wide ahead with uncanny vision, makes wise choices. Optimism is natural, a calculated gamble is engaged, and lucky, often wins. A human perspective per Mark Twain 11.30.1835: Nothing that grieves us can be called little: by the eternal laws of proportion a child’s loss of a doll and a king’s loss of a crown are events of the same size. The height and width of Sag vision gives them a greater range of comparison, seeing things side by side that others don’t see at all. Philosophers and Oracles.

The centaurian horse, gives a robust strength, and the ability to travel far and more safely. Having horses was considered a turning point in ancient civilizations. In Africa or India that may be a powerful elephant that can build villages. If you are a hiker it may be your big smart dog protector, its loyalty a special factor! Sagittarians have such a broad experience from their travels, they have a meaningful wisdom.

When Sagittarians choose their work, they focus like a laser! Laziness, procrastination fall away as they become one pointed and don’t falter. They are an inspiration to others who then follow them! When they choose a moral path, a spiritual point of view, they need to be kind. The weakness can be to judge, be self righteous, narrow minded. As judges in courts, they are often famed for their fairness and inclusive solutions.

Sagittarians are not always the marrying type. They need to be able to move around. A travel business, import/export, ministering over a territory, overseas missions, teaching internationally, maybe the Peace Corps, are potentials. They are always hungry to learn more, from everyday basics to spiritual linguistics! Their partner needs to be flexible, and to keep up. Traveling Sagittarians can often live with little to no finances. You need to be comfortable with that, and be able to be uncomfortable at times. Most Sagittarians are fabulously healthy. If there is trouble, hips/sciatica, liver & weight are likely involved. But if you aren’t a Sag, it’s another story. If you have the travelers’ bed and breakfast, a chain of hotels, and travelers come to you, you may be wealthy! Then you can travel in style wherever and whenever you want!

When they do choose a home, it may have a grand view, large, very large windows. A high ceiling is likely, skylights. A broad deck, balcony would do. Casual comfort and nature tones. A meeting space and guest rooms for visiting friends. ThanksGiving is their convivial time of year, and their constellation is also called the Teacup! Don’t be surprised to see trunks and magical covered baskets, art and art pieces collected from all over the world. A library covering the entire wall. Landscaping that takes care of itself, or a ranch with the finest race horses and great dogs!

It’s exhilarating to learn, to travel the world, survive, be inspired! Eyeglasses, binoculars, zoom lenses, telescopes all extend our vision! Take pictures, record videos, write books and blogs, publish the novel you wrote while you journeyed! BE the Guide! Share your savoir faire.

I feel that something’s coming, and it’s not just in the wind.
It’s more than just tomorrow, it’s more than where we’ve been,
It offers me a promise, it’s telling me “Begin”,
I know we’re needing something worth believing in.

— Sagittarian singer Harry Chapin  (Born December 7, 1942)

Happy Birthdays, Sagittarians!

Sagittarius horse lovers, son and mother, the Armstrongs, rescue foal named Texas at Shingletown CA.

A lot of Sagittarians love horses. Travis Armstrong works with Texas, a rescued foal, in Shingletown, California. His mother, Palomino Armstrong, rescues orphaned foals and raises them in her house. Due to the need for regular feedings, Palomino hardly sleeps—and if she does, she has a bed set up in the horse nursery.

New Moon!  Four Planets Sagittarius, Midpoints, Two T Squares!

Tuesday November 29, 4:18 AM Pacific, at 7 Sag 43

Sagittarius New Moon Milky Way Road

The road less traveled. American astrophotographer Aaron J. Groen is the author of a fantastic series of photographs that were made at night amid the vast territories of his native state of South Dakota. See his Setting Supermoon on November 15th, 2016! 

Four planets in Sagittarius! A new moon has a coming together feeling. In Sagittarius Mama Moon completes the 27 day marathon to arrive breathlessly beside Father Sun! Together they survey the vastitudes, sometimes remembering, often grateful and celebrating, sometimes longing, seeing a better way and often how to get there too! Moon rules the feminine, cycles, the mood of the people. In Sagittarius her home might be a camper, the tent she carries, a teepee or yurt. She gives Sun a sweet kiss, he glows and she is filled with Light, ready to go on. Before she goes she tells him how the past is changing, the current news, how the future is becoming. The State of the Union. He has her perspective and is guided to a more on point focus.

  • Saturn in Sagittarius harnesses the forward energy, guiding, holding for best timing, keeping track. No not showing up or running away. Saturn holds you responsible. He is so dedicated he needs to guard against burnout and take time off and away. Where Sag would spend quickly, Saturn sets allotments. Best to keep a party fund too! 
  • Mercury in Sagittarius thinks out of small boxes and past the large ones too! He is so optimistic it’s contagious. Everyone hopes for a better way, a better time. We need that hope and instinctively gravitate to a generous possibility. Surely there is a way! Sagittarians are often taller, so they literally see more of what can be, choose the best Path!

7 Degree Sagittarius New Moon at T Square point with the Moon’s nodes axis, and Neptune in it’s own sign Pisces. The Moon’s nodes span from Pisces in the South, to Virgo in the North. The South is thought to be the old ways, a reservoir of knowledge. Maybe it got a little out of hand and we need to balance with the other sign. A planet at the South helps round out unfinished matters. Neptune in its own sign doubles that potency. There is still a need to let go of fears, addictions, for compassion, a deeper understanding, to put art and music in one’s life, pay attention to visions, live our dream, be who we are as a Spirited Soul. The North Node is so different in Virgo that wants all the beans counted as you go. Sigh. But it’s just another kind of flow. Virgo is extraordinarily present in our daily life. Everything matters. All those dreams can be applied in service to our fellow travelers. Health care, clean daily living, saving time and resources, keeping the focus of why we have that budget. Pisces is water, Virgo is right here on Earth. Both are essential and valuable.

Sagittarius squares Neptune/Pisces. Pisces can be mournful at times, but Sag wants to play and ride those waves, it’s no time to drop anchor! Sag wants to know why that spiritual tenet is true – is it dogma or delusion? Pisces can be illusive and Sag finds it hard to make a connection at times. Sag, who tends to be always on, can learn to sit and be quiet. Pisces is stirred, maybe been sitting too long and it’s time to reconsider. Sag has physical long vision; Pisces has Soul vision. They may agree on the goal but have very different ways of getting there.

Sagittarius squares Virgo. Sag plays, the Virgo North Node works. Sagittarius may help Virgo lift up their head and refocus with the new information received. They are flexible when shown why it’s better. Sagittarius may gloss over necessary details that Virgo points out, and together they sort it out. Immediate necessities in order for long term growth to go smoothly and sooner!

Three Midpoints, two with Mars!

  1. Pluto at semisextile midpoint between Saturn and Mars in Aquarius. Semisextiles are sign to sign, potent, no step missing. They are neighbors, so they know each other well. This set is Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius. Sag has the fiery spirited traveler, Capricorn is the professional, a clever careful mountain goat, Aquarius is the heavens above, a stellar community of Lights! Pluto with Saturn is a cleansing of the stones in our mind, kinda like the ‘between a rock and a hard place.’ Some of what we believe needs restoration, some needs blasting away. Pluto with Mars in Aquarius directs the blasting, reunites fragments to a new structure that works so much better. Pluto in Capricorn gathers the elders; Mars in Aquarius gathers the ChangeMaker evolutionists and leads the charge!
  2. Saturn is sextile midpoint between Jupiter and Mars, both planets approaching Saturn. Jupiter and Saturn are traveling closely, but don’t make their exact aspect until Aug 27, 2017! Jupiter in Libra keeps introducing new people to Saturn, rebalancing long held opinions, encouraging sharing and reforming. See more Mars in Aquarius with Saturn brings new tools to the front. Instead of one working, a whole crew of people bring brilliant expertise, put up new structures quickly, move on to the next! The beauty is you can SEE the change and know it can be done. There may need be some tweaking, but, hey, done! Experiment working!
  3. Pluto and Venus are at the T Square point between Jupiter in its opposition with Uranus! Jupiter made its first square to Pluto only 5 days ago on ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24th! This was the first aspect following the Presidential elections and people have been adjusting to our new President-elect Donald J Trump. Human rights – Jupiter in Libra, financial and health concerns – Pluto in Capricorn top the list. Jupiter will oppose Uranus exactly the first time Dec 26 just after Christmas. Oppositions often separate. Many friends have become estranged after this complex election, with such extremes of vehement opinions. Yet others are staying steady to see how things can be worked out, to find ways to make alliances so differences become assets, to preserve previous gains. There will be some ground sadly lost. Much will be learned about how to explain why something is true, what can be done to negotiate, how to show the value of a different way.

Uranus is key! It’s the outer planet getting the most action.

  1. Saturn squares Chiron, trines Uranus. Dec 24 the trine comes first. Dec 28 is the Chiron square. The square disrupts relationships, businesses, healing processes. There are blocks and breakthroughs. Some will dig in, fearfully holding on. Some systems will crumble from the weight of age and time, allowing us to see new light. The Uranian trine will bring new friends and greater community – seek it, don’t wait. Having this support will help us get through some of the uncomfortable things we must surrender to and work at to have the changes we want for long term. See more
  2. Venus in Capricorn sextiles Chiron, squares Uranus! 20-20-20 Degrees! Sextile Chiron can mean a marriage, successful business, a healing! If a marriage is in the offing, please see your astrologer to see if your chart has good timing. Venus in Cap is realistic, but wants beauty also. Could be the grace of age, lovely stone or glass work, a business that does kind works for our community or guards our Earth. Square Uranus in Aries is a challenge to say the least! Capricorn can be conservative, and Venus there would pride herself in honoring her elders. Uranus is the inventor, disrupts the status quo and can prove the new thing works. Aries is impatient with people who marry jobs or lovers for money or are slow old fogeys that have forgotten they were young once too! If they trample, they may miss the possible support they could gain from staunch citizens that could back their every step. This is a time not to judge a book by its cover! Take a deep breath, calm down, and thank them for the invitation! If the wrong people are forever holding you back, time for a change. Surprising new friendships can be formed if you look about. They have been waiting for you.
  3. Jupiter in Libra is opposite Uranus Dec 26, day after Christmas! Jupiter is reactivating the Uranus square Pluto that has been with us since 2010. See more In Aries, the stellar dust is in a hot Uranian whirlwind! Libra is interested in polar differences. Jupiter asks questions, sometimes blunt and embarrassing. Libra loves politics and competition, Jupiter loves races! Uranus loves in-your-face differences, shocking wakeups, and Aries gets up early, ready to fight for the underdog and freedom! Spread your wings wide, soar high to see the lay of the land, where to best put your energy. There will be lots of change, some surprising outcomes!

You see, it’s a complicated multilayered New Moon! Totally enriching!

Full Long Night Moon! Two T Squares, Mercury with Pluto, Sun sextile Mars!

Tuesday December 13, 4:05 PM Pacific, at 22 Gemini 26

Sagittarius Full Long Night Moon Giraffe Tasting the Moon by Nirvana.K

What the moon tastes like? Sweet Giraffe Art Print by Nirvana.K

Full Moon Gemini – Sagittarius. Good thing it is a Long Night Moon, ’cause these two will chat all night! Gemini has gathered so many tidbits of information, and shares in volumes. Sagittarius has so many stories of its travels it would take a lifetime to tell them all. Anyone listening would be dizzy with the range of exchange, impossible to repeat it all! The Word is out, and the Path becomes more focused as the meaning of the collection starts to shape itself. There is recognition of an underlying trend of the times, the purpose is shifting and the focal point being adapted. It may seem slippery with so many layers, no solid ground, but getting down may be where it’s at! Sometimes it’s just downright fun to not know a thing, let it rip with no end in sight!

Full Moon air and fire oppositions can scatter the leaves to the Four Directions, diffusion is glorious and far reaching. There is expansion, a wider range of contemplation of possibilities and growth. New people pull us into a bigger space, markets expand. It’s all the amazing words on the breezes tickling your Soul, and what they mean and where you want to go with them – importantly, your life work.

Sun leaving Saturn trine Uranus/square Chiron, to sextile Mars! That’s a hefty mix! A brief T Square was made to Chiron. Sun leaving Saturn was a serious affair for about a week and a half. It’s a once a year aspect. Sun adds Light to Saturn. Saturn may be warmed or discouraged, feel praised or all its weakness shown. There can be a lot done proudly, or sadness/depression. One way or the other, there is a reality assessment. Part of the question is what can I do, personally?

  • Saturn trines Uranus exactly the first time in only nine days, Christmas Eve, Dec 24. Saturn squares Chiron the first time exactly four days later Dec 28. Sun just did those aspects, so will carry the energy forward into the sextile with Mars! The Sun trine Uranus is Light on Light, Star to Star! Sun is our Star Light Being; Uranus is ALL the stars, the Lights of Heaven! Sagittarius is the Light of the coals the nomad traveler carried from camp to camp, symbolizing knowledge shared, enLightenment. Uranus is in Aries, in this case, the heavenly candle flame, the Light of each one of our Spirits awakened.
  • Saturn’s square to Chiron is a type of challenge we have about every 7+ years. The old wounds are never left to lie. We get 7 years worth of healing at a time. Though often uncomfortable, it’s important not to miss taking a look. At this time, Sun has leant his Light to see the opening of the door to the next level of healing. Chiron is now in Pisces, matters of the Soul, a psychic hurt, being abandoned or denied, a misunderstanding, an illusion, an unfulfilled dream we carry deep within us – a seeming shameful failure. Sun has made us feel a bit naked in recent days with his light just where we can be the most afraid to look. With Saturn in Sagittarius there is a call to hope, to stop abandoning ourselves! Saturn says you can do it, a step at a time. Be real. You did the best you could at the time. Sun is leading now. He/we saw and we actually can feel better, more of our cards on the table.
  • Sun sextile Mars can be that first step we take! Mars in Aquarius gives an air sign lift, a literal step up! Sagittarius is all for that, they love to jump on things, get a leg up! With Aquarius it may all be a bit crazy! Relief! Sun has got a great big grin on and laughs heartily so everyone can hear and they smile or laugh too! Sports are going to be fun, and some wagers made. See about a new gym membership. Food will be saucy and spicy!
  • Moon backs up Sun, trines Mars. She has the words, the local connections, the feminine side of things to be shared. Her instincts back up the Aquarian intelligence, the quick spirited Mars. In logical air sign, multi visual Gemini, she is less fearful, more quick to respond herself! Oddly she may Mother Mars. In Aquarius he often goes it alone, way out ahead, so may need a little respite. Though they get along, Gemini is forever in motion, and Mars in Aquarius soon sees another challenging front to lead. Moon won’t forget him though, and may continue to support him in her blogs. It’s a new time. He is offering new solutions.
  • Jupiter is less than 1 degree of the sextile with Saturn, but retrogrades just before the exact contact! The influence is there, keep expanding, new relationship are put into play, but the consummation isn’t complete until Aug 27. See more
Venus was with Pluto at the New Moon. Now it is Mercury at the Full Moon! Mercury conjunct Pluto in Capricorn instigates a T Square with Jupiter opposition Uranus! Mercury relinks the Jupiter square Pluto making us remember, putting more words to what happened after the elections, and ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24. It keeps important considerations, resolutions, in mind. The second Jupiter/Pluto is March 30, the third is Aug 4. Mercury with Pluto we are likely to be a tad obsessively thoughtful. Can’t put the good book down. Deeply curious, to discovery or detriment! Words are whispered, backdoor deals made, not everything confirmed. Be cautious of gossip. Be clear but not hurtful if possible. Think of what the consequences of a mislaid sentence might be. Be healing and helpful. Don’t deny what’s real before or behind you. Biding your time might be the wise choice. There can be news of a loss of someone special to us. We might get news of a new cure, or an investment tip. It can be a simple piece of information that makes a huge difference in our life.
  • Mercury square Jupiter echos the Gemini/Sagittarius Full Moon signs. Mercury is Gemini’s planet; Jupiter is Sagittarius’ planet! Where the Full Moon opposition separates, widens the territory, Mercury in Capricorn square, Jupiter challenges the efficacy of the proposal. With Jupiter in Libra, Mercury challenges the people authorized to make decisions. There may be conservative and cultural differences at stake. Mercury in Cap brings facts to the table, but if people just like the good looks, the smile, of the Jupiter Libra reps, a decision may unreasonably swing to their side. Jupiter may exaggerate, and Mercury could bring them down due to lack of credibility. Go easy. In personal or family matters, remember this is NOT a court of law. If you are going to court be careful how you present.
  • Mercury and Pluto square Uranus. Mercury is still 8 degrees away, but Pluto carries the energy forward and is only 4 degrees of Uranus. The main factor is the unpredictability of Uranus in Aries. But always know it is looking for what’s new, especially in Aries, and what is better for the greater good. You may be right, but times are changing as we get more globally educated and connected. In the future, more decisions will be made with the greater good in mind. For example, the Standing Rock situation is not just about tribal territory land rights, but about protecting our water. That affects a lot more land than the reservation.

Venus in Aquarius shimmers in her starry sparkly gown, smiling semisextile to Neptune of the magical night. He is enchanting, she is beguiling, the sweetest thing he’s seen in a long time. She is off to another party; he sailing on the tide. She is a breath of fresh air, the wind fills his sails as he hums in the moonlight. She brings friends to visit, each one unique, stirring his rustling Spirit. He feels wealthy in his Soul for meeting them all. None of them might ever see each other again.

This is the Long Night Moon. Reach for it. Stand tall. Stretch and grow. Taste the Moon.

May your Circle be Unbroken.

Happy Birthdays, Scorpios!

Double Scorpio Neil Young Musician

Neil Young is no longer young, he is a cat with 9 lives! He’s an epic double Sun/Ascendant Scorpio born Nov 12, 1945, now 70 years old and still going strong! Though he has had a hard life, Neil has suffered from polio, epilepsy and back pain throughout his life, and, of course, he is also a famed singer/musician! Like a true life and death Scorpio, in 2000, he almost died from a procedure that ironically was intended to save him from a brain aneurysm! Near death misses are a Scorpio specialty, and they have extraordinary recuperative powers!

Challenge aspects for him are his Mars square Venus, a rare blood disease as a child, and muscular atrophy, polio. His Moon in Aquarius, cycles and brainwaves, epilepsy, squares his Sun in Scorpio, fixed, signs that indicate long term matters. They both at 0 degrees may be just beginning their journey, or could indicate a fresh start in this lifetime, recovering from old affairs of long ago. Mercury, the mind, is also opposite the Aquarius planet Uranus, stretching things to the limit. Lucky to have caught that aneurysm in time, and again when he fell on the street afterwards!!!

Other sets of aspects are exceptionally successful! He has two Kite patterns, in his case based by a Grand Trine in Air signs, that same Moon in Aquarius, its ruling planet Uranus in Gemini, and lucky Jupiter exponentially in Libra! Communications and connections worldwide! Add to that Mercury in Sagittarius, a thoughtful message with meaning, and Pluto in Leo, massive charisma, making two Kites! Further, Uranus and Pluto are connecting with Mercury and the Moon in a Mystic Rectangle! See his Chart!

As with all healers, having been there and back, saving is at the top of his list! Neil is a super environmentalist, advocate! Per Wiki, he is an ‘outspoken advocate for the welfare of small farmers, having co-founded in 1985 the benefit concert Farm Aid. He is currently working on a documentary about electric car technology, tentatively titled LincVolt. The project involves his 1959 Lincoln Continental converted to hybrid technology as an environmentalist statement. In 1986, Young helped found The Bridge School, an educational organization for children with severe verbal and physical disabilities, and its annual supporting Bridge School Benefit concerts, together with his ex-wife Pegi Young (née Morton). Young has three children: sons Zeke (born during his relationship with actress Carrie Snodgress) and Ben, who were diagnosed with cerebral palsy, and daughter Amber Jean who, like Young, has epilepsy.’

Young lives on his ranch near La Honda, California. Although he has lived in northern California since the 1970s and sings as frequently about U.S. themes and subjects as he does about his native country, he has retained his Canadian citizenship.

2016/17 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Scorpio!

Scorpio Kundalini Heart Anonymity Rose

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Perfect! Mid degree Scorpios will be in sync, Scorpio being Pluto’s planet and both of them determined to build a strong future. Scorpio minds the money, Capricorn minds the time. Materials are recycled, found at the best prices. Scorpio wants a clean machine – bodily, mentally, spiritually. They try on the cloak of power to find power is good when used for caring cause, healing and transformation. Capricorn minds the divine dharma, the work of the Soul and sacred places. Brick by brick they build for solidarity of the ages, for our children’s’ futures.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Scorpio, the second water sign, is both enticed and fearful of being caught in the web, does it anyway just to see what will happen. Scorpio is fascinated by life and death and has an uncanny ability to survive. Neptune can create and be abraded by minute particles, fine grains of sand that may eventually dull its sparkle. Scorpio is the cleaner, detoxer, whispering to Neptune to shake it loose! Neptune reads Scorpio’s intentions, even the ones Scorpio has hidden from himself. Revelation is certain. Whether gentle or ripped, perspective shifts amorphously, a new Being emerges.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Scorpio does and doesn’t like change and isn’t usually BFFs with Uranian Aquarians or Aries. Uranus won’t be ruled, as an intelligent observant air flavor, not likely to be intimidated, manipulated or tricked. Aries prods and won’t leave you alone once they get a bee in their bonnet. But Scorpio knows how deep his well is, and has some values that are important to be reserved, preserved. However, changes will seep down to the lower levels. Aries opens a psychic crown portal, Uranus distracts with shocks, Scorpio always curious, inadvertently allows entry. In time he sees some change empowers, and there is a surprising boost of energy! Hang on and let go!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Scorpio is good with Pisces waters, loves a deep swim, snorkeling, diving, the challenge of dark and the rush of immensity! Strong trusting bonds of marriage and business partners are deep in their Spirit. Mergers give more options. What was lost may heal incredibly and transform. Mutual surrender has merit. A new life is in the offing.

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius in 2016. It retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees. Factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, the 2nd and 3rd times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof – their praise is well earned and means a lot. Saturn in Sagittarius is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Scorpio is uncomfortable with Sagittarius truth seeking. Scorpio lets information out when it is timely to do so, or not at all. It’s private. Yet at times, playing it so close to the chest, we miss opportunities because no one knew we wanted them! Saturn will help keep Sag in check, be respectful. If Scorpio is laughed at, sadly, there may be payback later. Sag does have things to teach though, so don’t miss the open door.

Scorpio is good with Saturn, both determined Light workers in their own ways. Scorpio clears, removes, renovates; Saturn is the builder. Scorpio is the power behind, the money that makes it happen, while Capricorn bosses the crew, is constantly alert, keeps time on the project. Saturn is going for honor and the long term good. He’s the front man, and credits Scorpio. Scorpio needs recognition in a good way. Scorpio offers strength when times are tough, reminding us how we have survived before, are creatively resourceful. If there is an end-of-life circumstance, they will be there for you. They are excellent counselors.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire in Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Scorpio is famous for listening without blinking! You tell them all about yourself and realize you know little about them. Jupiter in Libra is entertaining, to say the least. They have amazing stories of their travels and the people they have met. Scorpio loves hearing of cultures and customs, different ways of thinking and living life. They are charged and won’t mind hearing more. In time they may come to share about themselves. That’s when you know you have gained their trust, it’s special and means a lot to them. Scorpio learns it is ok to open up more. On the business front, Jupiter in Libra is the liaison, representative, the legal team. Scorpio holds them close. Jupiter learns to respect what’s confidential and why.

Happy Birthdays, Scorpios, and may your new year be blessed in every way!


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

Scorpio, Passion for Life!

Scorpio Yoga Cobra Pose Kundalini Awakening Woman

Yoga ~ Cobra Pose, Kundalini Awakening

Libra is sunset, Scorpio is dark! But the Kundalini of Scorpio is the Fire at the base of your spine, the Light within!

Cooling time of year, time to make ourselves strong, gather wood for winter fires, prepare shelter, share and trade stores. There is an intensity due to necessity to survive. And in those dark snuggly nights under the hides, we are passionate and summer children are born later.

Scorpio is the sign of the deepest love, until death do us part. Some are masters of Sex, from courtship to consummation. Tantric sex is a super special practice that can take intimacy to the Soul level. It’s not just pleasing your partner, but making love with the Universe.

Love makes us feel safe to be vulnerable to heal our roots – past lives, childhood, relationship hurts, bodily pains. Cleaning your fibers, clearing your way. Healing makes us feel safe to take care of ourselves, to be vulnerable to love. Protection of the scorpion comes first, being able to say ‘Don’t tread on me.’ Rising up like the serpent on the physician’s/healer’s/magician’s staff brings us into the Light.

There are two serpents. They don’t touch yet they are entwined. They are equal. We do better together, more whole and complimentary, collaborative. Teachers and healers must not unduly make demands of their students, interfere with their student’s right to make their own choices. A healer must always know they the healer don’t know everything, in fact it is often important for them not to!!! Students must respect their teachers, yet know as the student they have their own Dharma to live regardless how much their teacher wants what the teacher wants. Delicate balances of caring.

Washing away the dross, diluting and removing soiling poisons, frees us to see without revenge, to speak in clean tongue, to renew lost relationships. A new potency emerges and we step beyond past failings. We are able to connect at higher levels.

The heights are symbolized by raptors, birds of prey with keen eyesight and the elevation to see from! They are powerful, fly long distances. Scorpio Hunters seek a higher point of view, note our weaknesses, see where support is needed. The Eagle is the USA’s bird, and many think the USA astrology chart has a Scorpio Ascendant. Our country has had great wealth, as fierce mergers have been made, multiplying profits. Greed has been a struggle for many, while others have  turned their profits under, further enriching our soil. Some has been given for great causes, world healing, to relieve suffering, empower transformation.

We are fascinated, sometimes infatuated, by each other. That splendid attraction opens our Spirit to ask questions, to extend ourselves, be charmed by layer after layer of divine experience. We get to know one another deeply, be more genuine, seek what is important. Scorpios live like this. They are our guides through the tunnel, the therapist taking us deep within. The midwives that birth us anew.

Scorpios are noted for their strength. They often have explored the most dangerous and come out unscathed. They take on demons and are redeemed. They want to see it all, be it all, and can reform against great odds. They know what being saved means. At times they are revered, not straying an iota, staunchly moral. Temptations yes, but not falling. Whatever place you may be at in this continuum, it is honorable. You are doing the work. Slow progress is perfect. No progress is a vantage point of deepening and observation, becoming one with what troubles you, understanding. If you are peeking out, have a good look. Make your plans. If you have stepped into the Light, know it may not be comfortable at first. Go back and forth for a bit. You will get used to making the transition. Knowing where you came from makes for a kinder person with a passion of caring. Then the story becomes not just about you, but others as well.

Use your power and passion in a good way, to heal, not harm.

New Moon of Dreams!  – Trine Neptune, Jupiter Square Pluto!

Sunday Oct 30, 10:38 AM Pacific at 7 SC 44 

New Moon Grand Canyon Milky Way

Remote and sacred places on a dark night are perfect choices for your Scorpio… Grand Canyon is one of the best places in the world to witness celestial wonders. Don’t think for a second that outdoor adventures end when the sun goes down!

No Full Moon over the ominous castle on Halloween this year! Instead, it will be fittingly dark! But it does precede the Presidential Election. It will hold some of the deeper secrets – some yet to be played, some never to be known.

New Moons of the longer nights time of year have an even deeper feel. Leaves are blanketing earth, protecting the soil from drying winds, storm runoff, mouldering and feeding our soils for spring growth to come. New Moons complete cycles and we feel the endings, the accomplishments, what lingers to be carried on into the new cycle.

Maybe we sleep a little more deeply and the dreams are more vivid as we come closer to our Soul’s longings. This is especially true this time because the New Moon and Mercury trine, flow well, with Neptune in Pisces, the planet and sign of dreams and magic! Intuition abides, Mercury the translator is at hand. Scorpio questions the dream’s meaning. Moon remembers long ago times, and how the Mother’s Mother taught her children. Sun shines, even in the dark, giving a glow to special moments that they may be shared. Mercury, keenly records the whispers and nuances to give them full expression, context, a perspective of the times.

New Moon and Mercury are semi sextile Jupiter in Libra, giving a living breath, further intensifying Jupiter’s relationships. Passions for learning are focusing as new steps are revealed, the core energy must be answered, the Kundalini can’t be ignored! It’s what we live for!

Jupiter in turn closely exchanges principles with hardworking Saturn, now in Jupiter’s sign Sagittarius, that feels the responsibility to do the mission one is meant to do! Education, the kind that suits your learning style, is imperative! Venus is right at Saturn’s shoulder showing us how wonderful a choice it is! It’s lovely, an enjoyable journey, charmed, worthy, and makes hella good sense! There is great mentorship, and the fees may be at a discount!

Saturn and Venus are semi sextile Pluto! There is a rapport because Saturn is the planet of Pluto’s current sign Capricorn. Saturn is ever so sensible, though in Sagittarius he is more inquisitive than usual. There are many paths to the mountain top, and he chooses well. Venus adds grace and charisma, a sweet smile, and off they go arm in arm. Pluto sees they have got something, and puts his money there! Pluto adds a couple footnotes that make the journey and the story even better. There’s an old Master up the road they must see.

The big aspect is Jupiter upcoming square Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s sign, exact Nov 24. This New Moon and the Nov 14 Full Moon, both include this aspect and provide a foreground of thoughtful matters leading to Nov 24, as well as being the pre and post election charts.

No, it isn’t all going to be easy. Whatever the obstacles, they need to be addressed sooner than later. It could be there is a start, but the finish is delayed. Money runs out. Someone close may require a lot care time and that sets you back. Keep your balance as possible; focus on priorities. Watch your own health, no burnout. You may be hard pressed to make deadlines. Important to set boundaries to protect what time you do have. See More

Mars is also in Capricorn, but mostly working on his own now. He sextiled Chiron, squared Uranus Friday the 28th. He and Chiron may have found a better way to do the job. Square Uranus, he likely left a friend or two behind. There could have been challenges over who was in charge, an accidental mess, too much weight. Perhaps he thought Uranus in Aries was irresponsible and Uranus, loving his freedom, simply let Mars go without much ado.

Preceding the Presidential Election, some will do last days of Soul searching to decide how to vote or whether to vote. Scorpio is able to make sacrifices, surrender and hold peace in difficult or imperfect circumstances while biding their time. Things change. With Jupiter in Libra there are powerful dichotomies, extreme polarities. Most of us agree we want the world to be a better place. Be thinking what you can do, personally, to make that happen. Working together is sometimes easier said than done. If your candidate wins, stay kind. If you candidate loses, stay kind. Middle ground may not be an option you choose, but be respectful as you fulfill your choice. Some of us will be walking paths we have never done before. Take it easy on yourself and others.

Steady in the Light and good luck on your journey.

Super SuperMoon! Full Frosty, Beaver Moon! – Mercury, Venus, Mars, Sign Changes, Jupiter Square Pluto!

Monday November 14, 5:52 AM Pacific at 22 Taurus 37

Exquisite Full Moon Frosty by David Cartier Sr Phoenix Rising Meditation

David Cartier, Sr. says ‘I was attracted to the way the slight bit of ice fog in the subzero air seemed to be sucking the moonbeam straight downwards.’ Exquisite image he calls Frosty Moon. I think it is a perfect Phoenix rising meditation.

11.10.2016 Note: Donald J Trump is President-elect. There were many successes for women! 52-year-old Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto became the nation’s first Latina Senator, replaces Democratic minority leader Senator Harry Reid. In California, State Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris was elected as the state’s first freshman Senator in 24 years. Harris is the first black politician to represent California, the second black woman ever to join the Senate, and the first woman ever elected as California attorney general. 48 year-old Tammy Duckworth, a congresswoman from Illinois and the first disabled woman to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, won the race for US Senate. Ilhan Omar became the nation’s first Somali-American legislator after she won a House seat in Minnesota. The 34-year-old succeeded with 80% of the vote! Kate Brown was elected as the nation’s first openly LGBT governor in Oregon. (GoodNewsNetwork.org)

Now we know who our next President will be. Only a week after the election, we will be comparing how it is with how we speculated it might be. A Taurus Moon is organic and practical, will help us make the most of what we can. We have a need to stay calm, keep basic resources intact. Scorpio Sun seeks alliances that will withstand any storms. It ferrets monies away in secure untouchable places. It strikes and takes advantage of any opportunities that may occur unexpectedly. Scorpio, a water sign, flows along mighty channels, sweeping debris out of the way, leaving silt for more fertile ground. Full circle, the floodplains become rich Taurus soil for new growth. From rampage to rampant abundance!

The nature of Full Moon oppositions is to divide and conquer, have awareness of a primordial axiom. It bridges the difference by making us lift our heads to be aware of the other. We finds ways to work in concert, each contributing their remarkable specialty. Or, we acknowledge that real differences exist to the natural exclusion of each other at this time, and let each other go on our own good way. Many options, often several together in overlapping layers.

Elementally, Taurus is mine, Scorpio is ours. Taurus acquires and owns; Scorpio shares and possesses! Taurus stills and absorbs like the Buddha; Scorpio, though outwardly doesn’t show it, hosts the human eternal flame, the Kundalini, the power at the base of the spine. Taurus solidly fortifies while Scorpio scathes and scorches! When friendly, it checks the perimeter so no one even gets to the fort! Both are fixed signs, so battles may continue over aeons of lifetimes, but, when they say it is done, it’s over. Some battles are within ourselves, others are with loved ones, or people around us. Oppositions cause us to study our so called opponent. Even if we ignore them, we are forced to see what to ignore! Paradoxically, as we come to understand, we make peace.

Our Full Moon axis leaves two planets behind. There was a Chiron bow, trine the Sun, sextile the Moon. Chiron is in Pisces, the possibility of Soul and Spirit healing, dreams of saving cherished remnants, piecing things to a renewed wholeness. There is consideration of immortality, things more important than simple mortal existence, living for body and money. Some teachings come subtly, like bubbles rising slow motion in the water, like visions in the fog, in and out of focus, a sound in the distance you aren’t sure of…yet it calls to you. You can feel it.

Sun is leaving the inconjunct with Uranus, Moon is leaving the semisextile. This set is nagging and disturbing. Good. There are new things to incorporate into our plans, but fixed signs prefer what’s already established. They, however, are the perfect signs to carry a new order forward. They don’t make change lightly, so what they accept, usually has merit if they are to bother with it at all. Taurus is sensible, and Scorpio is astute at seeing what’s behind the excitement. There may be a shift in alliances, or who does what, to get it all done.

Mercury, Venus and Mars have all changed signs since our New Moon only two weeks ago, and they are in close degrees! Mercury is now in Sagittarius sextile Mars in Aquarius! There are things to be said, and now! Independence, right action, freedom, need to be spoken as teachings community wide. New friends can be made, a new computer or programs very helpful. Venus, now in Capricorn, sits at the Mercury/Mars midpoint making sure they don’t exaggerate, are polite, have backup for what they claim. Venus wants respect for the message, and things to get done in a timely fashion to have maximum impact.

Jupiter is closer to sextile Saturn. They get very close, but not exact until Aug 27. Jupiter retrogrades to make more social and professional relationships that will support their work later on. Jupiter cheers Saturn. They both want education presented in ways that are meaningful, have credibility, and easy to uptake. Jupiter in Libra goes for more youth, while Saturn in Sagittarius draws the elders. Saturn holds Jupiter to task, keeping their purpose a priority. Expanding the range of their work, or the breadth of their territory may cause more work but a greater payoff in time. Saturn should keep things from getting too thin and overextending themselves, missing the mark. See more

If they don’t stay the course with right action, the Nov 24 Jupiter square Pluto may bring them down. Or, if there are things that need recovery work that need addressing before Jupiter and Saturn can get on with their work, the cleanup and renovation needs be done first. Jupiter in Libra may be over trusting, afraid to call out problems because of not wanting to hurt feelings. Or they may jump to conclusions, exaggerate, make enemies. Pluto in Capricorn may be old school and end negotiations. Pluto may try to force issues, but Jupiter knows how to sidestep and run, call the attorney. Pluto may look like he is in total control yet be more vulnerable than you think. And there are times when you must tell it like it is and let the chips fall. If that is your choice, be ready for consequences and have a backup plan in order for possible contingencies.

If Jupiter uses discretion and finesse – not manipulation, Pluto may be happy to receive him. Jupiter is often genuine and straightforward, honest with no tricks, means well. Pluto is not threatened, and in fact impressed with these sophisticated Libra ideas. They may both come out with some grand agreements, a plan that may be tinkered with, but develops well over time! See more

This is the last Moon before the Jupiter square Pluto is exact the first time. A Full Moon, an opposition, examines the range of values between the signs. Both have true principles and standards at different sides of the table. Use both, to judge the matters appropriate to one side or the other.

Jupiter square Pluto is the second aspect of the 2016 Oct to Dec 31 set of six that repeat two more times throughout 2017, the final aspect Nov 11, 2017.  Choices now will change as things develop. Look to your long term future to make best picks and get off to a good start.

Saturn in Sagittarius is still in close semisextile with Pluto. Saturn, ruling the sign Capricorn that Pluto is now in, will have an honorable say with Pluto, asking for leniency, to hold back for a while, to consider a more generous solution. However, kindly Venus is no longer with Saturn, and if things have just gone too far, his ethics offended, he may call for an example to be made, complete culpability.

Neptune in Pisces is at Moon’s South Node. Some of the ideas of the time may come from past lives, dreams of a long time ago, longings of many Souls. There may be a revival, a welling up, waves of tears ~ of happiness for a recognition from within, or of the Universe! Compassion replaces arrogance. There may be wrongs to be righted, healing to be done, shyness to overcome, to free your Spirit to step into this new frame.

Technicalities per Space.com  The “supermoon.” The full moon that occurs on this day will also very nearly coincide with perigee, the object’s closest approach to Earth for the year, in an event popularly known as a supermoon. The moon will turn full at 8:52 a.m. EST (1352 GMT), just 2.4 hours after it comes within just 221,541 miles (356,536 km) of the planet. (The moon’s average distance from Earth in its elliptical orbit is 238,900 miles, or 384,470 km.) The last time the moon came this close was on Jan. 26, 1948! Expect a large range in ocean tides (exceptionally low to exceptionally high) for the next few days.

We may feel a bit tidal ourselves! Even great Scorpio rivers have tides where they meet the ocean! Those of you who are coastal, take your camera with you for some super low and high tide shots!

Enjoy the Super SuperMoon! May your Circle Ceremonies be Healing.

Jupiter Sextile Saturn opens many doors, gateways, thresholds....

Jupiter comes within a 5 degree range of Saturn Oct 15, the very day of our Aries/Libra Full Moon! Many astrologers allow that range. Others, due to this aspect being a sextile only allow a 3 degree range. But if you feel it, even before the 5 degrees, it’s active for you! The three degree range starts Nov 2. This aspect is important because though it doesn’t become exact until Aug 27, and then only once, it is continuously close from now until March 6 when Jupiter retrogrades out of the 5 degree range. They don’t get that close again until July 29 through when it’s exact Aug 27. They are quite close 3 1/2 months then another month, so a total of 4 1/2 months they travel closely together in the background. It lasts so long because Jupiter retrogrades Feb 5, 2017, moving very slowly.Their closest connection before Aug 27 is a 2 day period when Jupiter is at 12.5 minutes of Saturn, very less than a degree December 28 (NEW MOON) and 29! This is just after Saturn trines Uranus December 24, Christmas Eve, and Jupiter opposes Uranus December 26! Please see the Holiday Four!

Jupiter may come knocking at your door, take you on a useful journey, opening many more doors, of all kinds, right and left! Saturn is the King of Thresholds, and is an adept keymaker! And when needed, a great locksmith, guardian of the goods!

Jupiter in Libra may increase Saturn’s workload, much to Saturn’s happiness! Successful building, artistic renovation can change the demeanor of an entire neighborhood, up property values. Saturn may be inspired by Jupiter’s far reaching ideas and open a new branch. Business may increase through new partnerships. There may be some sad moments as Saturn realizes what they missed, what has held them back. Knowing they don’t need to do that anymore is a great relief. Forgiveness may be given for mistaken thinking as the truth comes out. Time for healing. Health may get better with age, and respect and recognition given for long term well done work. Jupiter sees the benefits of Saturn’s bedrock solidarity.

Saturn offers Jupiter the consideration of right timing, being able to wait to right action. Jupiter is the valiant hero, but Saturn shows it is sometimes so better to let another have the spotlight and cheer them on! Just because you can, or even because you can do it better, isn’t always the reason to do it! Jupiter is full of vim and vigor, but again, restraint and focus pay off as you do what you do best and do your own appropriate responsibilities. Spreading too thin sometimes depletes our energy. Showing timely accomplishment, dedication, rather than running off for fun, is a good teaching. Doesn’t mean you can’t run off later!!! Or take your career on the road! Saturn has the wisdom of proven experience. At times the smallest achievement is profound.

Fatherhood, mentoring, being a Grandpa to child and grandchild, coaching from sports, career, to life, may take on special meaning. Discovery of new teaching principles may open doors of precious fulfillment! Both teacher as well as recipient will be delighted by their mutual revelations!

Spiritual teachings could be the basis for a turn in your Path. It could come in casual conversation, a scene that comes before you and the Lights go on! Church may call you, or you may be called to go on a Mission – Peace Corps to environmental. It may be a special person that inspires you, or you do the same skills but for a company that serves the world or makes health better for humans or animals.

Students, this is a time you can make good headway. It’s a good combination for both work and play. Take courses taught by Beings you respect and admire for the results of their ways, who inspire you, that make you proud that you have learned so much. It may be a way of life more than the things you have learned, how to live rather than what you live, that is most important. Whether one special thing or many, be grateful for the lifeway given that will carry you forward.

Your Dharma, your mission this life may become joyfully apparent, finally, and a profound step taken in its direction. Might go back to school, a specialty school! You have until the end of next August with this aspect! Make it count!
