Full Frost Moon!

Nov 22 the Sun leaps into Sagittarius at 1:02 AM Pacific, on ThanksGiving Day! The stage has been set. The Full Frost Moon is that evening at 9:39 PM Pacific, 0 Gemini/Sagittarius 52! It’s on Nov 23 at 12:39 AM EASTERN time!

Mercury Retrograde. T Square, Kite, Cardinal Grand Square ~ all linked! 

Sagittarius 2018 Full Travelers Moon
This one is called the Beaver or Frost Moon, but this year we might as well call it the Travelers’ Moon! It’s on ThanksGiving Day and whether you are going home to be with family or taking advantage of the holiday to take a trip, many are going to be on the road or in that plane! 

AND, this is the first lunar event, and I do mean first, it and Jupiter are at zero degrees, with Jupiter now in his own sign Sagittarius – the planet and sign of travelers! Apropos it is since the Full Moon spans Gemini (Moon) to Sun sign Sagittarius conjunct Jupiter, on the first day of 2018 Sagittarius!!! Arms open wide, Moon and Sun cross the dimensions. Gemini is fascinated by every single encounter with any possible living or inanimate thing at its fingertips! Sagittarius would walk 100 miles to see what is over that next hill and who might be there! Gemini thinks 100 miles a minute while Sagittarius is contemplating what it all means and is making plans to go another 100, knowing there is more! 

Mars sits at a T point to the Moon, Sun and Jupiter! His temperament is very different than theirs. They are chatty and heady compared with him in Pisces. He is a leader, but in Pisces can take complete silence. He can lead from behind or within, yet get him on a pulpit and the fire comes out! He can surprisingly lead the fray, an inspired compassionate leader in behalf of those who suffer. He is sensitive to what needs doing now to save the most later. His sensitivity avoids mistakes, gets right to the heart of things.

Sun and Jupiter are backed by a Grand Trine/Kite that finished Nov 19. Sun was in Scorpio then, received advice from Chiron in Pisces and the Moon’s North Node in Moon’s sign Cancer. Chiron gave tips on healing the Soul, the helpless and hopeless, other leaders involved with planetary healing. The Cancer North Node impressed Sun with the organic need for food and shelter, cleanliness and emotional support. Sun now in Sagittarius wants people to know, and put programs in place to get people on their feet, to be able to be contributing citizens.

Moon sits sextile midpoint between Chiron and Moon’s own North Node. And, she is one point of that T Square! She links them. First, as sextile Chiron and the Node, she too got the information Sun and Jupiter did! Where Sun & Jupiter in Sag are promoters, the Moon rules our shelter, women, children, the public at large. She knows the feelings of the times. She’s like a weather barometer that helps us make our moves at the times best for their reception. Sextiles of water and earth, she was in Taurus then, blend understanding and application. Taurus wants it to be anchored and long serving. Now in Gemini she’s spreading the word, getting thinking going. Next thing you know you are on the volunteer list!

There is a Cardinal Grand Square too! Cardinal signs get things going! Uranus is the Chief in Aries, leader, first responder! He thinks in terms of from the loner to all humanity! Getting one pivotal key person started can become an avalanche of success, worldwide achievement! Venus, in her own sign Libra, is sweeting her way along mending rifts, introducing strangers of great differences, blessing the day with beauty. She explains legalities and has teeth when she needs them. Don’t underestimate her. The Moon’s Nodes are the second axis – Capricorn south, Cancer North. We have been no nonsense business people before, building solidly a day at a time, supervising the troops, buying time, doing research and testing. Now we are adding in Cancerian caring, nurturing with quality food and comforting, offering personal support in community matters, the Sacred Feminine. Children are our treasures of the future.  

Uranus sits midpoint semisextile between Chiron and Moon! He links all three configurations, The Mars T Square, the Grand Trine and the Grand Cardinal Square. These are all action oriented combinations.

Venus is no longer retrograde, but Mercury is now since Nov 16. See more about Venus/Mercury Retrograde! It’s especially significant to this Full Moon since Mercury is Gemini’s planet! Communications are essential to spreading the good word. When Mercury/Gemini exchanges across the table to Sagittarius, he knows the information will go far and wide for free! Sagittarius loves telling stories, educating, sharing perspectives, opening minds to a vast array of information. Travel blogs to tomes. The retrograde function keeps reviewing, stirring the pot, incorporating insights that have come along.

Mercury squares Neptune. Mercury is pretty clear in Sagittarius, has his opinions. He has his usual ‘chatter’ but in Sag he’s looking for meaning too. He’s more likely to pick a direction. Or, he’s scattered more than ever with all those Sag possibilities in mind. Retrograde makes for a lot of quick mind changing. Neptune too can go either way. Either it’s mass confusion and illusion, or you would give your life for what you are dedicated to! Mercury is usually logical, Neptune is famous for those psychic curve balls! Good thing Mercury is quick on his feet in a fire sign, like a flash in Sagittarius, the sign of the nimble traveler avoiding the potholes! Good luck!

Saturn is making his own notes in his own sign Capricorn. He’s tallying, watching for what works, how much time it will take, materials needed. To him it seems like a zoo for the moment. He is wisely waiting for the dust to settle a bit. 

Pluto took the Light with him down under, below the Ecliptic Oct 30! Now Kundalini and Phoenix style he is ‘raising’ Hell, LOL! What an awesome job. The mighty midterm elections brought more ethnicity, more women, and LBGTQ! Pluto will have to make many powerful yet delicate shifts to bring these new people into productive work in their new jobs, help them stand tall yet balanced, to facilitate and establish their new ideas into a working part of our fabric. This Full Moon is equipped to help see the many facets that need to be harmonized. The ‘shifting sands’ of these mutable signs, Gemini and Sagittarius can be like quicksand swallowing you up, or a mixing bowl bringing each thing that needs work to the surface so it can be dealt with. Mutable signs are known to be in motion, adaptable – sometimes accommodating, other times taking you with them! 

In the long term, these events will be leading up to the Nov 16, 2019 Transit of Mercury and Nov 19, 2019 Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! 

Astronomical note! Our Full Moon is occuring at the same time as what is called the Pleiadian Alignment that started Nov 15, finishing Nov 23, the day after ThanksGiving! Earth, Moon 0 Gemini, Sun and the Pleiades 0 Gemini are precisely in a row! They were known as the Weeping Sisters, in old horary astrology, something to weep about. Lord knows we in California have had just that with the deadly Camp Fire and the sad losses with the Woolsey Fire. Some organic astrologers equate the weeping with rain. We are hoping for a steady light rain that our scorched land can absorb. The Pleiades are also called the Seven Sacred Sisters, with various mythologies about them, feminine, intuitive. Please allow a special channel to flow between us all. Blessed be. 

Also, take some special time this Full Moon day to consider what to do and make plans to do it. Review the 2019 Annual Special Edition. Jot notes in your calendar. Don’t worry if it isn’t perfect. Start as you can. Expect intelligent modifications to occur, a few natural mistakes. Mercury is retrograde, changing things on purpose, and it shouldn’t all go as planned, but, in time, even better! Evolution is the constant of change!

New Moon!

Thursday December 6 Mercury DIRECT 1:22 PM Pacific then the New Moon at 11:20 PM Pacific, 15 Sagittarius 07. It’s on December 7 in all the other US Time zones east of Pacific. 

Mercury Direct! Jupiter in own sign & New Moon in Sagittarius! Grand Square, Grand Trine, Mars/Neptune, 15°!

New Moon Sagittarius 2018 Milky Way Yellowstone

Photographer Dave Lane says a storm just passed before he captured this beautiful sight at Yellowstone National Park in 2015. He spent 4 months color-correcting the night time images to match them to the natural colors seen in the daytime at Yellowstone National Park. See the image large! See Dave’s photography tips!

This is the first New Moon during Jupiter in Sagittarius and the New Moon is IN Sagittarius! Hallelujah! It’s a double Sag chart plus Jupiter is in his own sign Sagittarius! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. This is a 12 year restart for Jupiter! Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times. Each New Moon is the wellspring of sign it is in, a fresh charge, and a pure source of that energy. And it’s the perfect support  for Jupiter! In his sign Sagittarius, Sun shines for him and Moon can feel the Sag messages so important to share! Make notes! Schedule to review and update them from time to time!

Mercury is no longer retrograde! Mercury Rx returns to Scorpio Dec 1 and Venus enters Scorpio Dec 2 at 9:02 AM Pacific. Mercury entered an intense Station (appearing to standstill) for 8 days in the last degrees of Scorpio! The Scorpio messages will be steeped, condensed, focused on, anchored in place. Decide what you want to keep as core guidance, let the rest go. Your foundation is set, move on with Venus’s blessing. Mercury turns direct, forward, Dec 6, the heart of the station, on the Sagittarius NEW MOON! The turn, very slow at first, has been made. After the next four days the findings will start being released, momentum will be gained. Mercury returns to Sagittarius Dec 12. He will be downloading the information to Jupiter Dec 12, leaving nothing out, until he conjuncts Jupiter Winter Solstice, Yule, Dec 21! Venus will be left behind on her own, still in Scorpio. See more: Venus/Mercury Retrograde Back to Back!

This chart is rather simple – you can see in the chart there are few aspects made – the color connector lines. What is exciting is that the point of the red triangle and the big blue triangle are linked!

There is the red, triangle that actually represents a Grand Square of Uranus, Venus and the Moon’s Nodes! It is quite odd in its combination. Uranus is in fire sign Aries retrograde. It will be squared by the Moon’s North Node in it’s own sign Cancer, also retrograde. Since the node moves faster, it will make the square while both of them are retrograde. Uranus in fiery Aries couldn’t be more his own man, complete loner to a leader of humanitarian efforts. Either way he is consumed, others have to come to him. Moon’s North Node in its own water sign Cancer is more likely to stay home unless it is a matter of taking care of the children. Venus is also in a water sign, Scorpio, still close but leaving them both behind. Water signs are usually trine, a harmonious aspect, but here they are square, somewhat at odds yet in compatible signs. It’s a similar setup for Venus ‘opposite’ Uranus. Oppositions are usually in opposite signs, which oddly have some compatibility. In this case they would be Aries/Libra – fire/air or Taurus/Scorpio – earth/water. But these are not. They are Fire/Water. Could be steamy, but Venus, of Libra has had enough of that upstart Aries, no finesse she thinks. Or she is impressed, and takes up his cause. In charismatic Scorpio she is looking for love and money, or wants to be around involvement with deep healing skills and centers for homeless, hospice, addictions. She’s blessed and not afraid of the dark side or being behind the scenes. Oh, the juicy secrets! She is not just a pretty face; she will do more than expected and more than we will ever know. Give her the reigns, yet check on her from time to time for your own peace of mind. 

There is the blue Grand Water Trine. The Moon’s North Node links the Grand Square with the Trine. Trines are considered a blessed configuration and the North Node too. North Node is our aspiration, balance with the South. In this trine, Mercury is exactly at the same degree and minute, giving deeper facts and wisdom from Scorpio, who has faced life and death. The North Node in Cancer wants to protect its own, so is quite grateful and now more able to secure resources and the safety of loved ones. Though the Node, always moving backwards through the signs, and Chiron are parting, Chiron in Pisces saw the weak points and showed the Node how to apply healing of spirit, as Scorpio showed the Node healing remedies. In turn, The node offered a nurturing place to stay, free of obsessions and addictions, instead a safe place with innocent babies and children that give us the reason to say clean and sober, to not stray from the organic reasons for being here together. Many times healers need to heal themselves. This trine is a great gift.

This trine helps calm the red lines. Uranus needs to be free, but how free? We are all a part of each other. We breathe the same air. Be free to be sweet. Pay more attention to the living beings around you doing the best they can. Be free to be able to receive love. Being touched by the Spirit of others makes a living difference. Venus in Scorpio can be enamored with her own seductive beauty that may be the source of her money. She may forget she too is a part of a web of dear humans that would love and admire her for more of what she is rather than what she has. They will love her when she is wrinkled and gray. She may be so wrapped up in giving healing she forgets herself. Open those pretty eyes, lift that chin, see and feel the love people have for you. Keep the balance.

The New Moon itself not in either pattern! In fact, it is virtually standing alone numerically. Both Moon and Sun recently squared Mars and Neptune, but, traveling faster, Moon and Sun are leaving them behind. What they will carry with them is the spice of Mars’s dreams while he has been close with Neptune. Mars has been inspired by Neptune’s amazing insights. Mars isn’t noted for being subtle, but he is in Neptune’s sign with Neptune. He is being steeped in Spirit. Aligned, he sees the vision too. Neptune is in Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac. Mars is the planet of Aries, the first sign of the zodiac! It’s alpha and omega, the beginning and the end! What one starts the other must end. What one dreams the other must begin! Both are planets of Initiation, one through perceptions and visions, the other through the action taken in their behalf! Leadership is often born of what we see that needs saving.

Mars makes the exact conjunction Dec 7 at 6:12 AM Pacific, so essentially, the daytime operative hours are the same day as the New Moon! Two beginnings at once! It is also true that Neptune and Pisces may obscure your vision and accuracy. You or what’s out there may seemingly be ‘invisible.’ Please be careful if you feel tired, distressed, or even super ‘high.’ You may not be as invincible as you imagine, and poor judgment may be your undoing. It’s ok to slow down. We are all on God’s time. Illusion and confusion, intentional deception, could take you on a wrong lead for a time. If necessary, admit your mistake, get help if necessary, and get back on track. Some of these experiences will strengthen you. You won’t fall prey again, and you will guide others away from these traps. The other side of that same coin is a breakthrough! Your perception may be so heightened you can see like never before! You are guided to do the perfect right thing at the right moment. Blessed be. If you are in water sports, you could be the impassioned winner, the hero of the day!

Special info for those of you with 14, 15, 16° factors in your charts! The Libra New Moon Oct 8 started a 7 month series of New Moons at 15° of their signs. Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries New Moons are each at the 15° midpoint of their signs. By midway, they ‘learn’ their sign and are tipping in favor of maturity and completion. All these Moons are resonant to each other! Each represents a turning point, a choice point on how to proceed further, a balance within their sign. Some of the signs will be in harmony aspects to the others, ie Libra and Sagittarius will make sextiles and trines to other air and fire signs. This one in Sagittarius will square the one in Pisces and trine the last one in Aries. Scorpio will make trines and sextiles with other earth and water signs. The master Capricorn Solar Eclipse Jan 5, 2019, however, the first 2019 lunar event, will be midpoint between Libra and Aries, the first and last signs in the series! A lot will hinge on his decisions and influence the remaining three, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries.

Saturn is still making his own notes in his own sign Capricorn. He’s tallying, watching for what works, how much time it will take, materials needed. To him it seems like a zoo for the moment. He is wisely waiting for the dust to settle a bit.

Pluto is still pondering, likely will be strongly for a couple more years, how he took the Light with him down under, below the Ecliptic Oct 30! He now, Kundalini and Phoenix style, is ‘raising’ Hell, LOL! What an awesome job. The mighty midterm elections brought more ethnicity, more women, and LBGTQ! It will be an ongoing responsibility to make many powerful yet delicate shifts to bring these new people into productive work in their new jobs, help them stand tall yet balanced, to facilitate and establish their new ideas into a working part of our fabric. 

This New Moon is strengthening our purpose. It’s about making meaningful and realistic plans about things that matter to our future. It’s the walk of a lifetime.

Full Hunter’s Moon!

Wednesday October 24 at 9:45 AM Pacific, 1 Taurus/Scorpio 13 

Grand Fixed Square, Venus Retrograde, 4 Planet Scorpio Stellium! 

Moon Seekers Frost Alexis Woman Crystal Ball Owl

Beautiful art called Moon Seekers by Frost Alexis!

This is the last Lunar event before Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic Oct 30! That day starts TEN days of events including the Scorpio NEW Moon! Since Pluto is Scorpio’s planet, it just seems right for the conjunction to occur in Scorpio. This Full Moon, the Ecliptic event, and the New Moon are all during Venus Retrograde! Scorpio and Pluto turn the deepest soils of our Psyche, whether they are cleaning up or stirring our fertility, preparing new ground for raising the seedlings of times to come! Venus is in Scorpio for the Full Moon and Pluto/Ecliptic, then in Libra for the New Moon. She wants us to shift our positions. She wants to establish cleaner relationships with people and money, how we heal each other and to wield our finances with higher purpose always in mind. See more about Venus/Mercury Retrograde!

Pluto, the Kundalini planet, the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes, at the Ecliptic, experiences the greatest infusion of Light possible! He is at the exact point of crossing the Sun’s Path! He stands in the fire, letting the Light burn away what has slowed things down, the no longer needed, the outgrown, mistakes, clingy obsessive behaviors. He will hardly know himself, so much ‘lighter’ now! He who was hiding can only powerfully glow and show himself now, his true heart, who he has always been. See more because it’s also important to see about the 2019 Transit of Mercury at that link!

Moon Taurus & Sun Scorpio are opposite. Taurus says mine; Scorpio says ours. Moon is in favor of keeping it for the family, investing in commodities. Sun fires up the coals of Scorpio and claims his territory with a kiss you can’t resist! Moon in Taurus has an intrinsic sense of what will hold lasting value, the foundation of your portfolio. Scorpio has behind the scene connections, knows just when to make the grab.

Taurus may be quite happy sitting in flowers at the side of the road – like the Buddha. Scorpio is on the motorcycle speeding by, but slams on the brakes to find out why you are there. He has an extra helmet and takes Moon to lunch at the organic cafe in town. He enjoys her peacefulness, patience and kindness, how she takes the time to really listen to him. Deep sigh. She is emboldened by his rapt attention when she shares. He may have a deep recognition of the small flame of her passion, and she comes to realize how important what she said is. He already knows, and endorses her leap into a bigger world!

Sweet Venus, Taurus’s planet, is Retrograde, ahead of Sun, coming back toward him as he moves forward! They meet each other, Venus with Love and Grace, Sun with his Heart of Love. Venus ruling Taurus is the planet of the sign opposite Scorpio, yet Venus is now IN Scorpio! So, much of the Moon opposition Sun applies here too! Venus’s job while Retrograde is to review and revise Scorpio matters such as deep relationships with oneself and others, financial proceedings, sources of health issues, healing protocols. Spiritually it is obsessions, fears, purification, to suspend time and space, let go of mean and vengeful behaviors, to share with the depth as if you were the other person, to understand the ultimate abandonment – the death of a loved one!

Sun is also taking some long term steps favored by a hard working sextile with Saturn, the old Master. When Scorpio is with you, they will do everything in their power, and that’s no small thing, to help you build your spiritual framework. Saturn/Capricorn is Dharma, the work of the Soul, and it needs a place to live and do business efficiently!

Uranus is also retrograde, but behind Moon, each separating from the other. Intuitive Moon just crossed the cutting edge wildcard inventor and freedom seeker Uranus, an electrifying experience! Taurus is sensible and already making changes, anchoring those genius ideas! She is protecting them, feeding them until they can stand on their own! Moon knows about cycles and this could be a rare opportunity. Uranus has been changing signs from Aries, now in preview mode in Taurus. Taurus has an instinct for what’s his and makes steady progress securing what’s within reach, in this case a taste of the future! Moon is 100% in favor and will make some canny trades that enhance your assets.

4 Planet Scorpio stellium! In addition to this lucky Uranus/Moon connection, besides Sun and Venus in Scorpio, Mercury and Jupiter are conjunct in Scorpio as well! They are consulting and won’t fail! They play the undercurrents well. Mercury accumulates a valuable bag full of information just waiting to be put to use. Jupiter’s big blue eyes have a knack for perspective. They see the possible outcomes of several venues, how they in turn fit together and make the picture whole! Jupiter is just plain lucky! He and Mercury are conjuring all sorts of multi- faceted opportunities, and funding is easily negotiated! They both were recently sextile Pluto in Capricorn, a master business combination. Great business, partnership, travel and location choices are made in no time! The right school is Ace!

Early Degrees SIX Planet GRAND FIXED Square!

Moon’s nodes are spanning Aquarius/Leo making a Grand Fixed Square with Moon/Uranus and Sun/Venus!

They are in early degrees, 0 to 4, so it’s too early to tell the outcomes. It’s exploratory and creative now, which somewhat contradicts the whole idea of ‘fixed’ signs that are meant to stabilize things. But, what’s good may be grabbed and anchored for useful future use! The Moon/Uranus combo we talked about just above may need to be more instinctual than stats. It will depend on Taurus’s sense of magnetism and the Moon’s amazing sense of cycles, past to future! They will likely defy the odds and win!

The Aquarian South Node loves defying the odds! Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose – c’est la vie! But, Taurus and Scorpio have no such feelings! In this case, an experimental Aquarian choice can bust you for the rest of your life if you lose your estate. Balancing with the North Node in Leo is the more amenable solution in this combination. Leo likes to spend money, so preserving the income making parts of the business favor Leo’s choice, LOL! Aquarius was free and the animal part of us doesn’t forget how important that is. Leo wants to create, use color and Light, perform as a teacher or at the theatre. Aquarius wants humanity networked; the center stage promoter of the cause, with huge presence, is LEO! Leo can make money and get funding for them all! Work it together!

The rest of the planets….

Mars is holding a light footed position in Aquarius. He is semisextile Pluto, can be helpful at an instant’s notice. While others are not expecting big moves from Pluto in conservative Capricorn, at this time Mars may be his secret weapon or security guard! Once triggered, Mars in AQ is lightning quick with surprise tactics. Off to the sides he may already be preparing the way. Keep watch, don’t let yourself be flanked! On the other hand, as others are working hard, you may be off enjoying watching the dust fly on the ski slopes! While you are there, you may connect with other leading environmentalists, exchange vital information.

Chiron is at 28 Pisces, left behind by all the early degree planets. He may be enjoying some rest, pondering what needs healing, how to do it and when. He has some intuitive teaching techniques and ideas in mind. In time it will settle and be a foundation for many years to come.

Neptune rocks on, on his own, in his own sign Pisces. Neptune too is ready when we need him. He’s free to be himself, uninfluenced at this Full Moon time.

IN THE BACKGROUND

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, only SIX DAYS from his conjunction with the Ecliptic, at his South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving Unfinished that lies in darkness, waiting.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

May your hunt bring you what you have always been preciously seeking ~

New Moon!

Wednesday November 7 at 8:02 AM Pacific, 15 Scorpio 11

Pluto/Ecliptic, Venus Still RX/Grand Square, Jupiter Scorpio/Sagittarius!

Scorpio Dark New Moon Earthshine

Transformation right before your eyes! The dark face of the Moon has a faint shine, a ghostly version of a full Moon called earthshine. It tends to be brightest between April and June. NASA Earth Observatory

EVENT #1! This New Moon will be the first Lunar event following Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic (the Sun’s Path), a 248 year event! This is the last Lunar event before Jupiter leaves Scorpio to enter its own sign Sagittarius! It is one of a 10 day strand of aspects following Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic. The 10 day series of events ends with this Jupiter sign change! It will be 12 years before Jupiter will be in Scorpio again.

Here is the full timeline with a brief description:

  • Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at its South Node 18 Capricorn 58 – a 248 year event! The power is light! See more!!!
  • Oct 31 Halloween. Always magical to try on different roles, acknowledge the ancestors and their wisdom.
  • Nov 1 Jupiter trine Chiron one time in water signs at 28 Scorpio/Pisces 31. Maximum learning, healing, opportunity, possible marriage – but don’t do it yet! This is the LAST aspect made to Chiron before he goes back into Aries Feb 18, 2019, not to return to Pisces for another 51 years! This aspect offers last healings before Uranus leaves Taurus, back to review Aries ideas and propositions. He won’t return to Aries for another 84 years! You see the magnitude of our choices at this time. Be strong. Meet those opportunities with new strength.
  • Nov 6 Uranus back into Aries. No sleeping dogs! Champions and leaders are back on call! Time to rethink ideas and techniques.
  • Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon! Scorpio is Pluto’s sign! We look into the Underworld, at our deepest motives. Jupiter inconjunct Uranus is at the LAST degree of Scorpio! It never was meant to be a straight path! Deviate with the best of them!
  • Nov 8 Jupiter in his own sign Sagittarius! The pleasure is your purpose! Blessings on your Journey!!!

Pluto brings Light to where the deepest healing being needed can be seen. Jupiter trine Chiron heals the healer so Pluto’s work can be done with maximum success! Uranus back in Aries calls us to any unfinished challenges, to make new beginnings on the spot! The Scorpio New Moon calls us to heal and release our deepest powers in a good way and invite selected others to fund and help. Jupiter inconjunct Uranus tickles our wildest planet into checking out further options to apply its genius to. Jupiter in Sagittarius doesn’t see it as too far to go, in fact, can’t wait! We’re on!

The framing of this year’s Scorpio New Moon in this sequence is profound! The New Moon, in Pluto’s sign, is a recipient of each part of the sequence as well as being an essential part of it, giving a purity of cleansing and healing energy that will facilitate it’s entire progress. Each New Moon is the wellspring of sign it is in, a fresh charge, and a pure source of that energy. This time it has special intention that will be carried along with all the long term aspects associated with Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! See more!

EVENT #2!  Jupiter Scorpio/Sagittarius The New Moon Jupiter is at 29 Scorpio, 29 being the last degree of any sign, it’s the end! Scorpio loves endings that herald the Phoenix rising from its own ashes! Dramatic? Yes. Real? Yes! Knowing the Grace of endings and new life that springs from it is a life skill. Everyone has Scorpio in their chart! Healing and Rebirth are revered. Previous experiences are the fertilizer, sometimes stinky, but always fruitful! In this 29 degree position, Jupiter inconjuncts Uranus, the planet of r/evolution, change, freedom, humanity! It spans from friendship to world consortiums, networks both from spiritual to the internet.

At maturity, Jupiter is dancing, celebrating with the electric planet! It’s the last jolt before the leap into his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8, the very next day! Jupiter the journalist gathered an impressive store of information of all kinds while browsing the underworlds of Scorpio. Sagittarius, the sign of perspective, will be sorting the array, finding a greater collaborative meaning than each piece standing alone. A bold broad Pathway will emerge. Jupiter’s faith will be boundless in his excitement! Lady Luck will be with him! Mercury is already ahead of him at 8 Sag, scanning, thinking, engaging with new people from many places. Jupiter’s transition into Sagittarius will be seamless!

Venus retrograde in her own sign Libra is most assuredly spicing the mix! She is opposite Uranus, encountering one of the most exotic beings she has ever met! Good thing she has that Libra aplomb! But she is ever the gracious ambassador, always brings the best of an encounter back with her. Uranus is the planet of freedom, on the cutting edge. She is either surprised that such an intelligent person is such a loner, or envious of his worldwide network! She can help him appear more mainstream and get an audience that will appreciate him.

They are in turn linked with Mars in Aquarius! Aquarius is Uranus’s sign, and Uranus is in Aries, Mars’ sign – called a Mutual Reception! Mars loves what’s new and fresh! Uranus is one of the few that will hold his attention for very long. Uranus is delighted how quickly Mars gets the idea, and impressed by his immediate action in its behalf!

Venus, don’t forget Venus, is trine Mars! Trines are good, the best! So happy together! Venus is still retrograde. Mars has moved forward in Aquarius and this New Moon they are trine rather than square! She’s too nice, and so is he! Mars in Aquarius is funny quirky and crazy! He loves this freedom and having a ball! Venus doesn’t mind if he flirts outrageously, or if immersed in his research, he doesn’t know you exist. He forgets to come to the party or your date, but somehow, you forgive him anyway. Plan on checking in and collecting him, SOP. Mars can inspire your socks off! Venus may find herself helping him look presentable and help him present his amazing project to clients who will see the value she sees in it. She could do some much needed fundraising for him. Go back to clients that were likely candidates before – they may have changed their minds, found an opening and be ready now!

Late degrees Grand Cardinal Square! That Venus opposite Uranus axis is square the Cancer/Capricorn North/South Moon’s Nodes. No one is standing still. Venus adores making new community connections. Uranus is wanting to engage the world. Capricorn builds homes and does business; Cancer takes care of the kids, the family, and her mate. She makes sure the kids go to a great school. They tend to be more conservative. Definitely some surprises in store! People of all kinds and places pop in! Venus smooths the way best she can, won’t win them all. Uranus speeds on but leaves his mark as their eyes open wide in shock or awe. But still, there’s no place like home. In those tired moments, some food and a safe place to sleep mean a lot. Those ones that keep the home fires burning, can support the ones that explore further possibilities and take chances in their behalf. Everyone has special skills and they can dovetail neatly.

Healer, teacher Chiron, at 28 Pisces, ties strongly with the Square. He closely semisextiles Uranus offering subtle ideas based on the needs of the people, healing Uranus without Uranus really realizing it. Chiron trines the North Node, sextiles the South. Pisces spiritually understands the need for social foundation, successfully raising children, their meaningful contribution to our future. Chiron offers visions and dreams that stir us through and through.

MOON & SUN

Sun lights the way, warms the day. Moon has her phases and shape changes, now you see her, now you don’t, never quite the same since the planets constantly shift positions. She views them from different angles and notes their progress. Sun absorbs her collections and observations when they merge at new moons. She speaks in behalf of the people, their capability, the mood of the times. It’s a potent update. He sees from a huge vantage point, commissions her with distribution of new insights. He recharges her energy because her task is big and requires strength of Spirit. She disseminates the treasured information, always sensitive to the effect it has. As she circles, every point of view gives her a more whole portrait of the evolution of Sun’s ideas. Moon is his invaluable link, collaborator.

The New Moon union of Sun and Moon is special in Scorpio as well as it was in Libra, each a sign of relationships. Libra looks for equality, wants connection, is an ambassador, mediator, makes beauty. Scorpio  wants a deep unspoken connection to the inner self, seeks to heal the source cause, bring you to full power. Libra seeks funding for many causes, can be the ‘face’; Scorpio has a way with money, has the funds, is uncanny at estimating who you are. Libra is the front; Scorpio is the power behind the throne.

Special info for those of you with 14, 15, 16 degree factors in your charts! Last month’s Libra New Moon started a 7 month 15 degree sequence. Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries New Moons are each at the 15 degree midpoint of their signs. By midway, they ‘learn’ their sign and are tipping in favor of maturity and completion. All these Moons are resonant to each other! Each  represents a turning point, a choice point on how to proceed further, a balance within their sign. Some of the signs will be in harmony aspects to the others, ie Libra and Sagittarius will make sextiles and trines to other air and fire signs. Scorpio will make trines and sextiles with other earth and water signs. Scorpio will square Aquarius Feb 4, 2019; Sagittarius will square Pisces. The Jan 5, 2019 master Capricorn Solar Eclipse, however, will be 90 degree midpoint between Libra and Aries, the first and last signs of the sequence, during a 5 planets Capricorn stellium! Capricorn is the midpoint sign of the entire sequence! A lot will hinge on his decisions.

The New Moon is sextile Pluto, freshly from his Ecliptic encounter, from the same point as when Jupiter at 15 Scorpio was trine Neptune Aug 19th! At the Libra New Moon, Sun and Moon had just inconjuncted Neptune in his own sign Pisces. This New Moon was just trine Neptune, a trine being the most favorable connection! They are even more empathic than before! Neptune knows oceanic power, has all kinds of visions and perception. Neptune is lending his ultra-sensitivity and psychic insight and vision that even Scorpio is impressed by. Scorpio knows what’s up with people, their motives and secret wishes; Neptune knows why and how that is connected to their Soul. Neptune has freshly transferred some of this to Sun and Moon so they will do better in their encounter with the God of Life and Death, healing and rising from one’s own ashes!

Since Pluto is Scorpio’s planet, the New Moon senses the way for Pluto. Sun energizes, Moon nurtures. Pluto in Capricorn may need some sustaining and comfort after the big encounter with the Ecliptic. The New Moon is right there for him. Sun and Moon do indeed have powers of their own. And, of course, it is Sun’s place, the Ecliptic, that Pluto was at. There is an alliance factor. Sun charged Pluto to the core. Pluto is powerful, but Sun is Boss! Sun’s Light shows Pluto’s best and worst. He may be exposed for what he is. If he has been hiding his talents, he will become known for them. If he has faults, he better get down on that Capricorn knee and be grateful for help. Sometimes the Healer needs healing. No shame.

Saturn at 5 Capricorn, in his own sign and the same sign Pluto is in now, is holding space on his own. He is having time to mull over how his services can best be contributed, what needs building next.

We are living in powerful times of trial and change! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times, what has come to be. Scorpio’s powerful connections give us what we need to clear our way, heal our hesitations, clean up and be reborn! Birthing is an honor. May we meet all our challenges in a good way. And so it is.

Full Harvest Moon!

Monday September 24 at 7:52 PM Pacific, 2 Aries/Libra 0

Early degrees emphasis, TWO T Squares, Chiron Aries back to Pisces!

Libra Aries 2018 Full Harvest Moon Sunshine Skyway Bridge Tampa Bay FL

Full Harvest Moon shining over Tampa Bay’s 4.1 miles long Sunshine Skyway Bridge! Lovely image by award-winning freelance photographer Jim Sykes. 

Bridges are symbolic of Libra’s purpose, the connections of opposites. Full Moons are the same, specific to the link between Mother Moon and Father Sun. Libra’s Fall Equinox season change 2 days ago is the same. Libra links the fall quarter of the year, and all situations involving from summer, ‘as above,’ to ‘so below’ as we go into the shorter days, longer nights of the darker deeper time of year. Sometimes only Spirit is our escort; other times we go arm in arm, equals meeting the inner workings of our beings. One way or another, we all go. It’s a collective experience we have each year. Some have initial fears of the dark. In time confidence is gained, we enjoy this mysterious dimension, become to love its qualities. In the daytime we are headed toward intense and exhilarating sports in the windblown crisp clear-your-head cooler air!

Only 12 days ago we had the Jupiter sextile Pluto, the far, far from the Sun planet of dark! Jupiter is known for seeing the bright side of things and since Pluto is known for his powerful funds, Jupiter made some lucky deals and raised generous funds for benevolent projects and causes! 2 days ago the Sun went into Libra. Not only did we change seasons, but signs as well! Less Virgo labor now, more social connections, emphasis on collaboration. What was one person’s job has now become an active team of contributors! The result is more whole, more sophisticated, much more than the original intention!These and the Full Moon are all while Chiron is trying on it’s new speed in Aries, pushing for new beginnings, testing new ways of healing, new arrangements in partnerships and doing business!

Tomorrow, Sep 25, Chiron returns to Pisces for a reminder of why we are doing these new things, why they are required next. We go back for another look at where we have failed, the consequences. We are touched with compassion for the suffering of all manner of addictions – food, drugs, to relationships, even at times our so called ‘devotion’ to a spiritual Path. We will get deeper into true spiritual bonds that hold us dear to sacred places and principles we believe in. The Full Moon opens the gates between us, each other and different dimensions. Step back that we may go more powerfully forward later. Maybe we left someone behind, need to say the farewell that wasn’t possible before, or they are ready now and we collect them. Feb 18, 2019 Chiron goes forward into Aries for the next 9 years. At that point it will be 51 years before it gets back into Pisces again. Really seek Chiron’s meaning while it is in Pisces. This is it.

LIBRA & ARIES

While the Libra Sun is shining, Mother Moon is traveling opposite in fiery Aries. She, in all her feminine glory, is standing strongly, leading the way! She feels passionate about independence, woman power, taking the steps that make a difference for our children, our family, the work we do daily because that’s life, the skills we take forward to the next level. She doesn’t hesitate if someone is in trouble or a fire needs putting out! She’s 100% intuitive, swift and to the point!

Libra Sun doesn’t hesitate to introduce himself. He might like to help you, or live the advantage of your expertise. He would like to get to know you and connect you further to the right people and places. He likes to equalize situations, understand the merits of every person involved. Sun considers all the facets at present, the possibilities. There are times when no conclusion is possible. It’s either too late or too early. Compared with Aries, he is reminded there are times you simply must take some action, you’ll never please everyone. Yet he also knows there really are times to wait it out, poised. Aries learns there are times to let it go for now. They can really help each other. We’re making very fine jewelry here. Sometimes you turn up the heat; other times you turn it down and let things gel.

TEN factors make very CLOSE ASPECTS in the Full Moon Chart!

From zero to 8 degrees! 
0 Chiron Retrograde
1 Moon, Uranus, Lilith
2 Sun, Saturn
3 Mars
4 Moon’s North Node always retrograde in general motion
5 Mercury
8 Venus

CARDINAL T Square

Moon is with Chiron kickin’ up the dust in Aries. Let’s get this healing gig on the road! People need it NOW! Moon and Chiron are semisextile Uranus in Taurus, itchy to get going, make changes, but they are blocked by the square with Father Time Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. He’s asking for papers and proof, tests, rules & regs. Moon and Chiron would love to just push him aside, and might do, but there would be consequences that might make a longer delay later. Sigh. Uranus in Taurus, is close in trine with Saturn, has been gently nudging him, so a shift is soon. Saturn slows us down just enough to have the time we need to think more clearly and do it even better after all!

Sun and Mercury have been running into the Saturn bricks too! Saturn thinks of Libra as ‘fluffy,’ not serious enough to be considered. Yet, Libra has Saturn’s eye, since those goods sell better when they are Libra finessed and attractive too, bringing more sales. Saturn is the T point man, so they all have to get his approval before it’s a go. Once they do, Mercury is already ahead! The evening before he trined, consulted with Mars, who is always on the leading edge, and has been excited, expecting things to pop! Mercury has the word, and soon as, is hoofing it outta here to give the good news, gather the local troops! Good chance you signed some papers in the last six days.

Saturn is no dummy! He can just feel all the energy around him and knows better than to over delay and miss the magic moments. He can think pretty fast on his feet when a lot is at stake. Cardinal signs like action, and this scenario just can’t be stopped for long!

Moon and Chiron are sextile Lilith and Mars in Aquarius, the sign of change! Again, when Saturn’s requirements are satisfied, Mars and Lilith will offer an entire group of independent women and leaders in behalf of our efforts! This combo can sweep us ALL off our feet! Hang on!

And Moon and Chiron trine the Moon’s North node, sweetly links the Cardinal squares with the Fixed squares! Moon never lets sleeping dogs lie, and quite more so in Aries! She and Chiron are acting like power boosters. Trine her own North Node bodes well for the new beginnings she hopes for. The North Node swings the balance to equalize the South Node in Aquarius, her Past. In Leo it’s less for Aquarian friends and collaborators; it’s more for what’s in your own heart’s light now.

GRAND Fixed Square too!?

Lilith, woman of power, in Aquarius, the changemaker sign, is at the root at 1 degree! She squares Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius. She won’t be able to move him entirely, because he, though new in Taurus, his new job is to test for organic truth and anchor that in Taurus. What we had always wanted is now couched in new times, so it has to prove itself in current tense. Uranus is square the fixed sign Moon’s Nodes spanning Aquarius/Leo. Mars and Lilith are at the Aquarian South Node, powers of the Past called upon, in this case for chaos! Yet they have a rather odd resonance of invincibility. They want change, and it WILL happen! Though Mars and Lilith are independents, when they call the other independents together they are a force to be reckoned with. The Nodes, in turn, square Venus in Scorpio, but they are always retrograde and are moving away from her. Venus squared Mars way back on the 8th and they didn’t agree. Now she has moved past him. Mercury will make a semisextile with Venus, but it’s not a major aspect. Venus may have memories, but is not likely much interested any more. By numbers we have a grand square. By active planetary motion we really have another T Square. 

Fixed signs are meant to stabilize, anchor, focus and keep our attention on what’s at hand. But two of these signs Aquarius and Scorpio want significant change. Aquarius wants to mend planetary ways, Scorpio wants to transform you body and Soul so you can do the job AQ wants!

Uranus is at the point of the fixed T; Saturn is the point of the Cardinal T! Saturn is the venerable traditional conservative in charge, while Uranus is leading edge technology, often ahead of its times, the Futurist, Rebel with many causes! Interesting that Saturn is leading the Cardinal signs that want action now, yet he is a perfect leader to keep them all corralled so they don’t make mistakes and waste time! Ironically, Uranus, the ChangeMaker, is in charge of the fixed signs that are meant to stabilize us!

The rest of the planets….

Jupiter and Pluto finished their last sextile the 12th. So much potential healing ability was given to be used during these further planetary transitions. See more

Essentially, Venus, and Neptune in his own sign Pisces, stand alone. Neptune is ready when we need him. He’s free to be himself, uninfluenced at this Full Moon time. Venus will NOT trine Neptune until Winter Solstice, Dec 21! She retrogrades at 10 Scorpio 50 on Oct 5, already slowing way down to make the Rx station. She stands still for many days at that turn.

IN THE BACKGROUND

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and getting close to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

This Harvest Moon has a lot of close knit interaction and wants a lot of change! For those of you who have 0 to 8 degree factors in your charts, it is likely to be an intense few days, very involved with what’s at hand, emphasizing heightened person to person interactions.

It’s a pleasure to meet you ~

New Moon!

Monday October 8 at 8:47 PM Pacific, 15 Libra 48

Square Pluto/Ecliptic, Venus Retrograde, Fixed Star Rigel – Again!

Libra New Moon 2018 Under the Stars Together

Nothing like a New Moon night for star watching together!

The New Moon union of Sun and Moon is special in Libra, the sign of relationships. They are looking for equality, each offering vastly different qualities. Sun lights the way, warms the day. Moon has her phases and shape changes, now you see her, now you don’t, never quite the same since all the other planets constantly shift positions. She views them from different angles and notes their progress. Sun absorbs her collections and observations when they merge. She speaks in behalf of the people, their capability, the mood of the times. It’s a potent update. He sees from a huge vantage point, commissions her with distribution of new insights. He recharges her energy because her task is big and requires strength of Spirit. She disseminates the treasured information, always sensitive to the effect it has. As she circles, every point of view gives her a more whole portrait of the evolution of Sun’s ideas. Moon is his invaluable link, collaborator.

They are challenged by their square to Pluto! He is most certainly in the glow of the Sun’s Path around Earth, the Ecliptic. At this point he will conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30, in only 22 DAYS! He may be so absorbed he hardly notices Sun/Moon. He is small, yet he is a powerful Being, and now he’s even being lighted by the most major Light we know! His power would seem beyond formidable, endless. He could be healer, he could be Evil personified. He’s in Capricorn, either builder or crusher. Libra better tread very carefully. This is not a ‘social event’ where you can just walk out the door with no consequences. Pluto knows your intent just about any day. With his powers amplified, you better go in with a clean heart. If you pass his tests, he will help you, build an awesome ‘house’ for you whether it is healing your body or building the Temple. If you don’t pass his tests, he will heal you so you can. If it is not the right time, he will know that too. If the idea is glamorous but false, it will be replaced or vaporized. You will be transformed, like it or not, one way or another!

Sun and Moon do indeed have powers of their own. And, of course, it is Sun’s place Pluto is at. There is an alliance factor. Sun is charging Pluto to the core. Sun’s Light shows Pluto’s best and worst. He may be exposed for what he is. If he has been hiding his talents, he will become known for them. If he has faults, he better get down on that Capricorn knee and be grateful for help. Sometimes the Healer needs healing. No shame. So, it may come to pass the Sun and Moon have their audience. Libra is just the ticket, an ace in delicate situations, reading every nuance, able to step forward or backup quickly as needed. It’s an intricate dance that can have extraordinary results. Respect is everything for Libra’s sometimes nervous subtle perceptions, Pluto’s well protected unspoken fears, Capricorn’s standing, reputation. All kinds of poise will be needed for this dance.

Sun and Moon just inconjuncted Neptune in his own sign Pisces. They are more empathetic. Neptune knows oceanic power, has all kinds of visions and perception. He has freshly transferred some of this to them so they will do better in their encounter with the God of Life and Death, healing and rising from one’s own ashes!

Mercury, also in Libra, is inconjunct Chiron in Pisces, tapping his wellspring of healing knowledge. Mercury’s quick ability may make all the difference. Just a few well placed words at a tense moment, can release the impasse, everyone takes a breath. Mercury is also out-of-sign opposite Uranus. Mercury is skilled at ‘interpreting’ his own way, in this case taking a Uranian odd idea but presenting it as plausibly sensible, catching everyone’s attention. All of a sudden everyone is calm. Oh, that’s what he meant. I see.

Venus is now retrograde and going ‘backward’ is squaring Mars! She’s too nice, and he isn’t. In Scorpio she might not say anything at all, but got what was going on behind the scenes. Mars in Aquarius is just itching to do something shocking. He might be rude or sexually inappropriate. Venus in Scorpio is hard to ruffle, but if he crosses the line, and Venus cuts loose, he may wish he hadn’t, and other people will be on her side. No excuse for her to be mean though. There could be a price connected to that caper. Libra is lawsuits. If things go the other way, Mars may shock Venus into coming out and taking a powerful stand! He could find her helping him present his inspiring project to clients who see the value she sees in it. She could do some fundraising for him if they get past their differences. Just get all the credit ratings, details and facts. See more about Venus Rx!

Mixed Grand Square! The early degrees are again involved, but not near as much as at the Full Harvest Moon. With Uranus retrograde and Saturn moving forward, they are no longer actively trining. The Moon’s Nodes are retrograding to square Uranus though. The Aquarius/Leo axis will find itself being shifted merely by being in Uranus’s company. In Taurus he has subtle electricity. He will have them consider practical changes. The South Node in Aquarius doesn’t like tampering with his genius, yet there is the planet of genius challenging him! The South Node in Aquarius is our past we hang onto, and Uranus is the ChangeMaker evolutionary futurist! What were genius ideas long ago need an update! Leo likes a good show, so is more likely to play but he is the Pet, likes his comforts. At the North Node he is looking for improvements. Taurus wants it to be a safe change that  will bring more comfort if possible, less indulgence at the expense of Earth. Mercury in late Libra can negotiate among them at this point, but when he goes into Scorpio the next day, he may have his own agenda. He may not even want to talk about it, and is stubborn if he does. Gotta show him the value and if it will make money to make him move. Or he may find himself shaking the bushes for funding for the biggest project he has ever worked on!

Fixed Star Rigel! Last month the New Moon at 17 Virgo squared, challenged Rigel at 16 Gemini 50 in the constellation Orion that so gloriously adorns the northern hemisphere winter heaven! THIS MONTH, the New Moon at 15 Libra 48 charmingly trines Rigel! Bluish white Rigel, is a double star, the 7th brightest star in the sky. Tradition regarding the influence of Rigel is quite contradictory. Ptolemy read it as Jupiter-Mars, showing a character that will take on anything before it, but such a person does have to be careful that their courage is used with wisdom and sincere purpose if they are not to be painfully stung for flaunting bravado for the sake of vanity. It is found in charts of government officials, military people, politicians, leaders of political parties, barristers and priests. Rigel proudly champions Libra’s handkerchief into battle and comes back with it to return it to his fair one! She is inspired by his magnificent behavior and vows to live her life more fully herself. They make quite the team!

IN THE BACKGROUND

Jupiter trines Chiron Nov 1, only that once! They aren’t quite close enough just yet for action, but see more to get ready for it. It is part of the 10 day sequence of aspects started when Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

We are living in powerful times of trial and change! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times, what has come to be. Libra lives the crucial function of connecting us, negotiating with dignity and respect, rebalancing our relationships, securing vital alliances. It is an honor. May we meet all our challenges in a good way. And so it is.

Full Grain Moon!

Jupiter sextile Pluto! Sun, Saturn, Uranus Grand Earth Trine/Kite!

Sunday Aug 26 at 4:56 AM Pacific, 3 Pisces/Virgo 12

Virgo Full Moon Woodcut Art Nick Wroblewsky

Woodcuts artist Nick Wroblewski works in Duluth, MN where it snows during winter. He has time to do this amazing art! Many Virgos are superb craftspeople, and wood is often their medium. Facebook  Website

No eclipses, no SuperMoon, no more Mercury retrograde, Mars finishing his tomorrow! Since Mars doesn’t complete his entire Retrograde pattern until Oct 8, our experiences are leading us to the very threshold, the gateway of the Pluto on the Ecliptic Oct 30, a once every 248 years affair!

What IS big about this Full Moon is that it is leading up to the financially tasty Jupiter sextile Pluto Sep 12! They are less than 3 degrees apart NOW! This aspect is also good for healing and powerful learning. Luck and expertise will go hand in hand. Don’t be surprised if big dogs/horses and a we bit of gambling get in the mix. It is excellent for installing reliable business programs and placing people in very fitting positions. Things WILL get done and live long, and it will be fun! A special kind of fame and some honor may come with it. Consider imports/exports. Combine business travel with visits to sacred site. Keep your Spirit clean. Everything we are doing now, is leading to these possibilities! Make this final window of time count! Plan ahead, big! Be ready to take the chance!

A caveat. At the time of the Full Moon, Venus is square Pluto. The square presents difficulties that need solving to clear the way. Venus might not get her way, and you might not entirely either. Why? Likely there are hidden costs and someone has to pay. It may be tempting to cheat or steal, but this is NOT the time, and watch your back, stay out of harm’s way. Any new relationship in these few days aren’t exactly likely keepers – the potential partner may have serious health or financial issues, or someone that requires them to take care of that for them. Admit your issues that keep you from a greater success. Be a tad more kind, but not a pushover either. Perfection would be lovely, but when do you think that’s going to happen, right? If your sale price is more wishful thinking than reality, get opinions from some other  experienced sellers and make the needed adjustments. If your prices on your art have been too low, raise ’em.

Uranus is the key planet with a strong Earth Grand Trine/Kite formed to it! Sun has given Light in the past 2 days. In Virgo s/he is keenly seeing the great changes coming. She has also consulted with Saturn about when the best times are to do what! Uranus has lots of friends and Virgo will organize the crew, tend to their needs. Saturn divvys up the work so the most will get done in the least time. Uranus offers extraordinary insights to earth changes, the flow of goods and food, basic financial matters of our time, how to stay stable while change, sometimes chaos, are about us. Though grand tines can sometimes slack off, thinking all will be ok, Virgo and Capricorn are both work signs – Virgo with the infinite daily matters and fragments, Capricorn with the timeframe in mind, constantly adjusting the flow as needed.

Moon, in her Piscean empathy, sits midpoint (making the KITE), equidistant between sometimes tough old Saturn, and the wildcard Uranus, though Uranus in Taurus may be more steady. Either can be a challenge to Moon though the sextile aspects are good. Saturn claims experience and isn’t moved by ‘over’ emotional or unsafe conditions when saving the down and out. Uranus is faster than the speed of light, even in Taurus and it’s hard to get his attention. But if any sign can, it would be Pisces, and Moon is so sensitive she senses his slightest shift even before he does it! Pisces softens with Uranus with truer than true insights, senses when Saturn shifts a particle and goes for the opening. Pisces has its own way of permeating and following, can be enchanting. Uranus is so surprised when he finds Pisces tagging along that he listens!

Sun, Moon, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, and the Moon’s Nodes are from 1 to 5 degrees! It’s a tight bunch, all influencing the others! Sun opposite Moon in PIsces is the life of it, having the feeling of what’s up. Pisces is super sensitive and Father Sun want’s to know all the details in Virgo. Pisces sees the dream, and Virgo wants to take it on, even if it is, maybe especially if it is, detail by detail. That is their expertise. They want to serve, whatever it takes that they can do or learn to do. And they will do it well. Trust me. Pisces loves music, and most musicians I know have Virgo strong in their charts. Great music requires fine tuned adjustments and Virgo can do it!

Sun and Moon both activated Chiron, now previewing in Aries. There are new ways to live a quality life, to heal from old wounds. New relationships are forming, whether it is ourself to ourself, or to others with information we didn’t know existed! The business world is changing as we do or don’t connect with other countries. Business rules and methods are changing profoundly with computers and the internet. Jobs and careers come and go. Mutable signs like Pisces and Virgo are good at adjusting, being flexible. Both want the best and are alert to shifts in the valence. And it is so important who we work with.

Saturn is retrograding back to almost square Chiron. We are feeling it. The brush comes so close we are sure we are doomed, but it doesn’t happen. The fears we have are the hints there are things that need to be taken care of anyway. So do it. Be mindful to deal with health matters that nag you. Keep watch over certain friends that may need some assistance. Be gentle with your expectations. Get help if you need it. New ventures in business may be challenging. Do your best and know you did what you could.

Mars retrograde in Capricorn is being sure the latest tools and skills are being introduced and shown how to be used, where they fit in our lives. Mars goes back into Aquarius Sep 10, the day after the New Moon. Mars quickly scouts the area for new friends, inventors, group action leaders, people with their pulse on immediate events. Mars made connections while in Capricorn and will be sure these Aquarian type people have channels to the tools and supplies they need to continue their work effectively.

IN THE BACKGROUND

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!The Moon in Pisces lends magic and miracles! Sun in Virgo will work day by day, side by side with you to make them come true! Blessed be.

New Moon!

Sign Changes, Grand Fixed Square, Fixed Star Rigel!

Sunday September 9 at 11:01 AM Pacific, 17 Virgo 00

Virgo New Moon 2018 Sawtooths Milky Way Dark Sky Reserve

Milky Way at the US’s first Dark Sky Reserve, now one of 37 in the world! Ed Cannady Photo in the rugged lands of the Sawtooth [Mountains] National Forest, central Idaho. The International Dark Sky Association will have their annual meet Nov 9-11 at Snowbird UT!

No eclipses, no SuperMoon, no more Mercury or Mars retrograde! Since Mars doesn’t complete his entire Retrograde pattern until Oct 8, our experiences from before now, until then, are leading us to the very threshold, the gateway of the Pluto on the Ecliptic Oct 30, a once every 248 years affair!

3 New Moon Aspects

The New Moon stands just past opposition Neptune in his own sign Pisces! There may have been confusion at the same time as insights. You may not have felt like working or ended up doing something you didn’t expect but was just right. Fears and doubts are behind us. Knowing what they were keeps us on our toes. Spirit is our guide across the river.

Next, Moon and Sun sextile Jupiter in Scorpio! Virgo and Scorpio are both signs of perfection. Virgo keeps the budget, tracks the return on the investment. Scorpio uses the data to invest. Great returns are possible! Oh, yes, works for me! Virgo, the herbalist and practical technician, works hand in hand with the Scorpio midwife and saves people from dying or helps them kindly with the process. Send in your application and ask for the money you want. You may get the job and/or the funding you need. I can feel your tears of gratitude. If you are approached to be a backer, give it a chance.

To add strength to the Jupiter combination, the New Moon is also trine Pluto in Capricorn! Pluto is Scorpio’s planet, so it powerfully assesses what Jupiter is raving about. Capricorn realistically points out any possible flaws that might occur over time, so a less emotional decision can be well made. If you all decide to go ahead, reassess at an interval that would likely work well. Have a back up plan ready to step into in case it is needed. But chances are it will be a success that may need a few fixes along the way. Sun, Jupiter, Pluto alliances are just about invincible! Get out your calculators! Get your team lined up and start working toward your goal! Launch a business, website, important blog!

SUPER DAY! Try to have it wrapped up by the Sep 12 Jupiter Sextile Pluto at 0:56 AM Pacific! That mid of night time means it is most strongly in effect on Sep 11, when Sun sextiles Jupiter and trines Pluto! If the Sep 11 & 12 aspects, on an increasing Moon, connect well with your chart, they could bring you amazing results! (SEE your astrologer for you personal timing!)

3 Sign Changes

Venus just changed signs from Libra, her second sign, to Scorpio! Libra relationships are social and public; Scorpio relationships are personal and private. Libra makes cross cultural partners; Scorpio is part of the corporation, financial dealings. Libra is fine arts; Scorpio is psychological, skillful intricate healing in the deepest layers of our psyche. Venus now puts her blessing on delicate matters, places we might not be so proud of, yet are part of us. Sharing our story, so others know they are not the only one, may save lives. There are survivors holding their heads up. If we can know how they did it, we can do that our own way and stand on our own again. Virgo takes notes and especially pays attention to the process.

Mars is at the last degree of Capricorn. The New Moon emphasizes how Capricorn’s work is the wellspring poised at the brink of change! Mars goes into Aquarius the next day, Sep 10 at 5:56 PM Pacific! While Mars previously, in its retrograde cycle, went ahead in to AQ then retrograded back into Capricorn, we had a preview of why we should tend Capricorn’s mission with such dedication. AQ will need every bit of that foundation to carry on the massive changes needed across the board – political, economic, environmental, humanitarian.

Sep 25 Chiron in Aries retrogrades back to Pisces to strengthen our dreams, beliefs, intuitive understandings. We see more of the value in all beings, want to save Souls. Right now we are taking a good look at how to do get those dreams rolling, make potent new beginnings, how to lead efficiently and right to the pivotal point!

Grand Fixed Signs Square – Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius

We have Mars at 29, Venus and Chiron at 0 degrees, and Saturn and Uranus at 2 degrees in a network, each affecting the other! Throw in the Moon’s Nodes at 5 Leo/Aquarius and we have a grand fixed Square! Mars will square Venus. He wants it now; she may have previous plans, but he is persistent. They meet, but hoped for results may not be possible, too late. Or they quibble through it and hope it works anyway. Best is to revisit when Mars gets into AQ. He will want some new different things then. He squares Uranus, the planet of AQ. Uranus is more wild than Mars, but in Taurus may be perversely stubborn, not as quick to respond, or possibly doesn’t want to make as much change as Mars is advocating. Mars can’t count on his friend Uranus this time. Venus might be shy and a little put off by what may seem to be demanding rough or strange ways. The Moon’s North Node, the nodes alway retrograde, is making the squares with Uranus then Venus, last, the opposition/conjunction with Mars. The South Node in AQ is the past, so those old shift-under-your-feet AQ shocker styles won’t work as well this time. Surprise, unnerving strategies won’t be received so kindly. Shift over to the Leo North Node. Be more transparent, put a light on things, put your heart in it and see what happens. It still might not work. Fixed squares often stay just as they are until things move out of the pattern. It’s ok. You all got to take a look.

Also in the degree pattern are Mars sextile Chiron and Saturn trine Uranus. Chiron in Aries offers new ways to do business, relationships. Back in Pisces he offers more understanding to what is going on in our Spirits and the delicacy that may be needed to convince Venus. Saturn trine Uranus is one of those close-but-doesn’t-become-exact aspects. You hope, it gets mighty close, but that’s it. You end up letting go of that chapter. What does help is Venus sextiles Saturn! She can call on her father, her mentor, and elder she respects, an experienced expert. She wants to do what will work in the long term. Mars may be right but his timing may be off. People aren’t quite ready yet. In Scorpio she may not like that Leo Node bright light, but if she and Mars meet later on to review, there may be some surprising results as things are transforming quickly in spite of the fixed signs.

Fixed Star Rigel The new Moon at 17 Virgo squares Rigel at 16 Gemini 50 in the constellation Orion that so gloriously adorns the northern hemisphere winter heaven! Bluish white Rigel, is a double star, the 7th brightest star in the sky. Tradition regarding the influence of Rigel is quite contradictory. Ptolemy read it as Jupiter-Mars, showing a character that will take on anything before it, but such a person does have to be careful that their courage is used with wisdom and sincere purpose if they are not to be painfully stung for flaunting bravado for the sake of vanity. It is found in charts of government officials, military people, politicians, leaders of political parties, barristers and priests. Rigel may stir up Virgo, or Virgo is not impressed by Rigel’s boasting. He is formidable and no pushover no matter how intelligent Virgo is, but she may come to realize she needs a champion!

IN THE BACKGROUND

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

We are living in powerful times of trial and change! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times, what has come to be. Virgo welcomes planetary clean up, polishing our systems, living more purely each day. May we meet all our challenges in a good way. And so it is.

Full Thunder/Hay TOTAL Lunar Eclipse

Longest Eclipse of 21st Century, Uranian T Square, Saturn Fate & Wisdom! Jupiter/Neptune, Venus Love, and….Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde!

Friday July 27 at 1:20 PM Pacific, 4 Aquarius/Leo 45

TOTAL Lunar Eclipse July 27 2018

Magnificent TOTAL Lunar Eclipse Sept 27, 2015 taken from California​ by Alfredo Garcia Jr

The Full Moon is a TOTAL Lunar ECLIPSE July 27 at 1:20 PM Pacific, 4 Aquarius/Leo 45. It will be seen in a vast area, but, sorry, not in the US. However! It will be the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century (2001 to 2100), a whopping 1 hour and 43 minutes! Happy viewing to those of you who get to see it! Time to get tickets to the place with the best weather!

Why? Per EarthSky: In 2018, the July full moon and July lunar apogee – the moon’s most distant point from Earth in its monthly orbit – both fall on the same date: July 27, 2018. Therefore, the July 2018 full moon showcases the most distant and smallest full moon of the year. Sometimes called an apogean full moon (or micro-moon or mini-moon), this smaller and slower-moving full moon takes more time to cross the Earth’s shadow than does a full moon that’s closer to Earth and moving faster in orbit. That’s why a full moon at or near lunar apogee adds to the duration of a total lunar eclipse.​

As a TOTAL Lunar Eclipse, Moon will not be dark, she will be a bright living red/orange! The connection is maximum, perfect alignment. If you were at the places on Earth it is visible, right on the central Eclipse path, even more so. But for those of us other places, it still has immense potency. This is our second Eclipse of three this summer. People have been asking me if they should meditate or party. Both, of course! Get out there and feel it! BE with it, BE it! Sit with it. Give gratitude for the good. Ask reverently for connection with the greater beings. Listen with your body, mind and Spirit. Send requests to be a better emissary, for the greater good of Humanity.

Shake it! Thunder is like that drum roll when Leo walks on stage, only bigger! It’s a celebration! With all that sunlight, the hay dries in the fields and gives the golden glow Leo’s love! Mama Moon is over opposite in Aquarius bringing all her friends to see this extraordinary performance. Aquarians are hard to impress, so it must be way better than average to get those excellent reviews. If nothing else, Leos give it their sincere best! They aim to please!

Fixed T Square! A couple days ago Sun squared Uranus, the planet of Aquarius. Sun didn’t know whether to blink or bolt or just take it in! Thunder is one thing, lightning another! The Gods do talk and write the lightning script! You may have left some friends behind, or they pushed you forward against the odds! Moon is in Aquarius, Uranus’s sign! She can be shy, but less so in Aquarius. He understands lunacy, foibles. And Moon just crossed rowdy and randy Mars 2, 3 hours ago! She was revolutionary and unruly, wherever they were, with no apology! Possibly impatient and grumpy too. A little scared, but took an uncommon chance, and she’s not going back! Sun saw the whole thing, and wonders if he will ever see her again. She certainly won’t be the same when he sees her next! What’s astonishing is all these are fixed signs – Aquarius, (Uranus in) Taurus, and Leo! But this combo, a T Square, is challenging. Aquarius and Uranus are change makers – the only constant is change! Uranus is at the point of the T!​ Leo will stand his ground, is heroic, but he does react to the challenge, and changes to make the most of it all! In steadfast fashion, he prevails! Steady in the Light.

Sun trined Chiron 2+ days ago, while Moon sextiled only about 4 hours ago! Chiron is a great one to consult with about business, partnerships – both biz and pleasure, health and teaching! Chiron tied Moon and Sun together and now they can express what he had to show them as Mars makes his upcoming sextile with Chiron. Mars in AQ is uncommonly fast, and Chiron is in Mars’ sign Aries. Whatever they do, it will be done PDQ, pretty darn quick! Chiron in Aries has a hella lot of spunk, so Moon and Sun were some surprised, and plenty excited to try these special new ideas! We all may find ourselves taking a more potent stand for matters that concern us.

SIX planets are at 2, 3, and 4 degrees! They all have and are interacting with Saturn, the planet of Dharma, now at 3 Capricorn, in his own sign! Sun just checked in for an assessment. Saturn will almost make the trine again with Uranus, but not quite. But Saturn remembers he doesn’t have time to hang out with all his old friends, times have changed. Now it’s important to focus on the current job, the cause at hand. Mars, in next sign Aquarius, is semisextile. He gives Saturn the elbow in the ribs and reminds Saturn global wide important matters are at hand. Mars will help lead him beyond Capricorn’s usual boundaries safely, and right now! Moon was there and she agrees with Mars, helps bring women into more potent roles. Mars and Moon sextiled Chiron and he has lent his support! Get going, make it possible! Saturn will also almost square Chiron in Aries, Mars’ sign! Old worries come back to gnaw at us, but we have learned more and know what to do. If it requires attention, take care of it now and keep your life moving!

Change is inevitable, but it comes in smaller and bigger doses! Our Lunar Eclipse and the Aug 11 Solar Eclipse happen during the Mercury/Mars Double Retrograde! Mercury Rxs July 25, just two days ago, so it is what we call ‘in Station.’ At the time a planet turns direction, it appears to stand still, stationary. It’s a time of focus, being immersed in what’s on our mind, coming to understand it during the duration and be good at it. Mercury stands alone, making no traditional connections in this chart. He can be considered free of constraint or from being influenced, or impotent with no connections. That can be good for pure thought, or a mire of mixed thinking that confuses and nothing comes to pass for our efforts. But, we observe and reserve and can see how things work, make a list as we go and take up some of our ideas later if they pass the test of time! Mercury can see both directions after a retrograde pattern is complete!

Mars Rx wants to DO something even if it’s wrong. Consider it a trial run. You may invest some time and materials, but that may be considered to be part of the cost of doing business. Revise your exercise program appropriate to the signs Capricorn and Aquarius. Capricorn is more conservative and able to wait things through. Might miss some worthy experiences or save a lot of time while others are flailing. In Aquarius even the Gods can’t sit still. With Mars, experiential experimenting, research are a must. It’s not just a thought, we must see it for real. And that tells the bigger story, the unanticipated becomes apparent! It’s heady and exciting! So glad we had the courage to try! We are able to advance sooner knowing how better to make things work! If we hadn’t tried, we may have missed something important and have to do a recall later.

Since Mars doesn’t complete its entire Retrograde pattern until Oct 8, our experiences are leading us to the very threshold, the gateway of the Pluto on the Ecliptic Oct 30, a once every 248 years affair!

Venus is right now putting the sweets on Pluto so he will more graciously journey his Path to the Ecliptic. Venus 19 Virgo sweetly trines Pluto in Capricorn at the same degree. She blesses him with simple advice he recognizes as a cue he is doing the right thing. His spirits are buoyed and he continues on his important life altering mission.

To the rest of us, on our daily endeavors, she will act like a salve to all the bouncing around we have been taking – the T Square challenges, the double retro. Pluto will be especially blessed. He can be so inscrutable, alone, especially in proper businesslike Capricorn dealings. But Venus listens for her cues. She understands the importance of each detail, smooths the kinks, manages the books and sometimes knows more than Pluto! She helps him without him asking. He deeply admires her and is so grateful though he may not say so. If he starts telling her secrets or indulges in a little gossip, that’s a big deal. It means he trusts her, her discretion. Prime compliment. He may at times be obsessed. She redirects his attention to the priorities in a practical way he can hear without offense. If he is neglecting his health, she offers some options and lets him choose. She is wise to that he will chuck the stuff later if he isn’t in charge. He is strong in his intuition. It has to be his choice. She adroitly makes his appointments in view of many considerations and often makes brilliant decisions herself! She might get a raise.

IN THE BACKGROUND

The juicy Jupiter trine Neptune continues…. Jupiter has turned forward! They are 3 degrees apart and closing, only 23 days until their 3rd and last trine Aug 19, the day after Mercury in Leo turns forward out of Retrograde.

Jupiter is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking are Jupiter super talents. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with Neptune in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may take a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time, a virtual miracle! See more. Make this final window of time count! Plan ahead, big! Take the chance!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at his South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

The innocent, the Profound, Eclipses and Ecliptic, retrogrades, Saturn and Uranus bring us the new and pure, and ageless wisdom, and a wild crazy time! Let that thunder roll!

New SuperMoon Solar Eclipse Inconjunct Pluto Ecliptic Point!

Still in Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde, SIX Early 0 to 5 degree factors!

Saturday August 11 at 2:58 AM Pacific, 18 Leo 42

Leo Crescent New Moon Aug 11 2018 Solar Eclipse Josephine Wall

Leo is THE sign of Cosmic Hair! Celestial artist Josephine Wall couldn’t have captured it better!

This is the last of our three summer eclipses, the second Solar Eclipse! It will be partial, best viewed in Northern Russia at 68%.

August 11th’s New Moon Solar Eclipse will be the closest 2018 lunar event by degree preceding Pluto on the Ecliptic. It will be at 18 Leo 42, only minutes from the degree at the Ecliptic Oct 30 (18 Capricorn 58)! It will be what we astrologers call an inconjunct line-up, 150 degrees, one sign off from being opposite.

Inconjuncts invite us to take a look aside, pay attention to the perimeter, adjust our perceptions, expand our awareness. They can be scary, nagging, irritating, distracting, intriguing. We may find ourselves exploring that side road, taking the unexpected detour, sometimes never coming back! Life shifts as we acquire new information, get to know new peoples, or know the ones we know in a new way.

The Sun is potently in his own Sign Leo the Light, joined with Mother Moon, a total Light infusion/exchange! It’s a perfect line up with Earth, a straight shot, so we get some too, ALL of us, no matter if night or day wherever you are, or whether you chart lines up with it or not!

This infusion is off to the side of, inconjunct Pluto, a dark planet, yet a Phoenix that rises from his own ashes. Infused with this Leo Heart of Light energy, Resurrection is likely! If you can see it you can heal it! Let the Light come in to never-been-seen-before places. Admit the hurt, bad places; admit the power you have always had! Get clean and use what you’ve got for the greater good! Use obsessions to your favor; focus them on your top three goals. Totally satisfying. Use extremes to your favor. Have a broad range of attention and resources, head for the top rank, then multiply that by 100 or more! Since Pluto is in Capricorn there may be old parental matters that have hobbled you for a long time. Step out now. They were only in your child mind.

In Capricorn Pluto has intentions and can be obsessed, unyieldingly determined! But Leo is the sign of Light and Heart, a 5 Star+ general! Secret powers are revealed, elevated and revered. Leo is a generous sign, and Leo being our Sun’s sign, radiates this heart energy to all, whether their heart is open to it or not, doesn’t matter, the Sun shines. We are warmed in places where fear held us cold; we relax and find ourselves able in ways we thought were lost or would never be attained.

This infusion is important because Pluto is quite close now, at 19 Capricorn 20 retrograde. That’s only 22 minutes of space away! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path through our sky, the Path of Light. The Dark, hidden Plutonian ways, skills, come to the Light to lend a hand on the quiet. The Light brightens our Path so we know exactly where we are needed next. No mistake. Capricorn is the Builder. Raise the elevation. Build a Bridge that we may collaborate and have union. Build a Temple that we may give gratitude.

On the day before, Aug 10, at 8:54 PM Pacific, the Moon was exactly with Mercury the Messenger. They were square Jupiter in Scorpio and inconjunct Neptune in Pisces. Things went bump in the night. Scorpio loves the dark. It’s the Underworld medium where secrets and power can be kept or corrupted, used for healing the invisible psyche, clearing subtle forms obscured by daylight scrutiny. It’s a different medium and things that belong to it must be observed in their own element for true comprehension. Jupiter wants the truth, so will do what it takes, hoping it’s luck will protect it.

Neptune in his own sign Pisces is another nighttime combination, the Dreamtime. If you feel it you can heal it. Our imaginations give us cues that we can use when we are ready and able. Moon in Leo brings the Light and  nurtures the shadows, obscurity may grant a glimpse when the mists momentarily part. Logical Mercury doesn’t panic, is used to such dramatic options. He is quick to note what he saw, and amazingly talks it over with Neptune, who isn’t always able to stay clear. His natural element is intuition, not logic. By naming it, a lot can be released, a fear or an addiction is over.This important work first allows the Eclipse to do greater work since the channel is not blocked or slowed, obscured, by psychic or emotional debris.

Mars and Mercury are still both Retrograde. (See also the Full Moon above for more about them.) They are turning the soil so to speak! Mars is at 0 AQ leaving square Uranus, about to return to Capricorn. The amazing inspiration of Uranus, AQ’s planet, and Mars being in genius AQ, is right between our eyes, and Capricorn will build it! Mercury is at 14 Leo leaving the square with Jupiter in Scorpio. He is bold and bright and big minded with a huge smile! He sniffed out some terrific ideas and is taking them home. Seeds in the planter!​

Mars and Mercury matters are not settled. Mars in Aquarius is on the brink of returning to Capricorn for 29 days. What we are doing and why, the work we do and who we do it with, are under consideration. Old skills work, but new ideas lead to greater success in time! Mercury is in Leo, matters of the heart, our sense of personal identity, our creative ability. They are being reviewed. How we talk about those matters, and who we talk with, makes a huge difference. Consider, but don’t expect a final answer during the double retrograde. Wait a good four days after Mercury goes forward, direct, Aug 18 to take any action at all. And you are still taking your chances until after Mars goes direct Aug 27. Be ready to make further adjustments.SIX Early 0 to 5 degree factors! We not only have a New Moon, new beginnings, but six factors in the six first degrees! Four of them are moving forward into new ventures, but Mars and the North Node are retrograding, making sign changes.

  • Mars is retrograding out of Aquarius, at 0 AQ, back to 29 and 28 Capricorn.
  • Chiron is Retrograde at 1 Aries, is slower than Mars, so doesn’t catch up with Mars.
  • Uranus is also retrograding at 2 Taurus, slower than Chiron, but in a close position with Chiron that it holds for a 13 year period. They have both changed signs this year, however, so the new game is on! Aries is new beginnings and leaders. Uranus was in Aries, but has passed the baton to Chiron as Uranus is now in the next sign Taurus. Sudden Earth changes. Animals, plants, minerals, climate.
  • Saturn is Rx at 3 Capricorn, but doesn’t go so far back as to connect with either Chiron or Uranus.
  • Venus at 4 Libra is going forward and is leaving her square with Saturn. Being in one of her own signs, Libra, she attempted to placate or boost Saturn’s morale, act as a go-between, or inspire him to find a kinder way to negotiate. It was a challenge, he may not immediately act on, but still, the experience of their encounter is with him. He sees the advantage she offers.
  • She has more success sextile the North Node at 5 Leo! Leo likes her style and she draws him out of himself to consider other people’s needs as well as his own. She does it with class, so he follows her lead! The NN, always in a general retrograde motion, will take her beautiful and classy insights with him back into Cancer. Even the kids will eat the cross cultural dramatic, exciting food preparations! Heroes will be born!

IN THE BACKGROUND

This is the last Lunar event before Jupiter’s last trine with Neptune Aug 19! Jupiter is now at 14 Scorpio 49, only 47 minutes of space apart and 8 days until the trine is exact! It’s only 7 days until Mercury in Leo turns forward out of Retrograde, the day before the Jupiter trine!

Jupiter is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking are Jupiter super talents. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with Neptune in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may take a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time, a virtual miracle! See more. Make this final window of time count! Plan ahead, big! Take the chance!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at his South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

Be present with open hearted Spirit August 11. A New Moon brings new beginnings. A Solar Eclipse is a direct lineup of Moon and Sun, access to our Light Bearer, this time potently in his own sign Leo! Hold your gathering Circles as close to the exact time as possible. They are like a magnet and increase energy more than 10 fold! It is at 2:58 AM Pacific time. Perhaps hold Circle the evening before to protect, enhance the Gateway. If you are a solitary practitioner, hold Light before, at the Threshold, and after the exact time for acceptance and synthesis. Those of you who hold Light at this time, with intention, will be holding bright energy from then through Oct 30! Thank you.

Mercury Mars Retrograde 2018 Drone Landscape Panoramic

New point of view! Drones give a greater elevation, a wider vision, the angle you choose! Your screen of the image is in your hands wherever you are. Mars is in both Capricorn and Aquarius, new scientific machines; Mercury retrograde in Leo shows us dramatic new ways of seeing, communicating!

We think of retrogrades as forward, back, forward. That might be hiking or driving up or down mountain switchbacks, or boating the curves of a river as it meanders to a lower elevation. Now we have drones that have a higher vantage point like flying with the birds, or a lower vantage point exactly level with the top of the mist to see a sunrise that is clouded in below. It can see in front of us to see where we are going, and in an instant turn the drone to see behind us, see what the way home looks like. We can take our picture as we, our child or dog, race into a scene, amazing action shots, or a close up while we are far, far away! Our perspectives are expanding, enhanced, just like what happens with retrogrades, even more sophisticated!

Mars only retrogrades every other year, so this double Retrograde can only occur then and only if Mercury happens to retrograde at the same time!

This intricate double Retrograde process hosts two outer planet sign changes, two major outer planets aspects and precedes Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30! Plus, Oct 30 to November 8 is an exciting TEN days in its own right! Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at its South Node – a rare event! See more!!! Nov 1 Jupiter 28 Scorpio trines Chiron just that once. Nov 6 Uranus retrogrades back into Aries to review and update! Nov 7 is the Scorpio New Moon, and Jupiter 29 Scorpio, last degree, inconjuncts Uranus just once! Some people you travel with, some no longer, new ones pop in! This is it! Choose who you go on with now! Nov 8 Jupiter hop scotches over the line into his own sign Sagittarius! Where are my walking boots, my horse, my travel tickets?

Here’s the Mars & Mercury timetable:

The Mars Cycle Started May 12 in Capricorn!
May 15 New Moon, Uranus into Taurus, Mars into Aquarius
May 25 through Aug 19 Jupiter trines Neptune

June 26 Mars Retrogrades
June 28 Mercury into Leo

July 7    Mercury starts Rx cycle
July 25  Mercury Rxs

Aug 11 New SuperMoon Solar Eclipse same degree as Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!
Aug 12 Mars back into Capricorn
Aug 18 Mercury turns forward/Direct
Aug 19 Jupiter’s last trine Neptune!
Aug 27 Mars turns forward, Direct

Sep 5   Mercury into Virgo
Sep 10 Mars forward into Aquarius!
Sep 12 Jupiter’s last sextile Pluto
Sep 25 Chiron returns to Pisces

Oct 8   Mars finishes his entire 3 part cycle
Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

Mercury will do his 3 part cycle July 7 to Sep 1. Both Mars and Mercury will be retrograde at the same time July 25 to Aug 18! Watch your step! Mercury’s entire Rx cycle is within the Mars Rx! Though in different signs, they are inextricably linked by time.

Whether ascending or descending, what a journey! What amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. What’s behind is out of sight, a memory, what’s ahead is a mystery! Bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. They give us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch. In this case, having two planets dancing, you may be a bit dizzy and overwhelmed! At times one is going forward while the other is going backward, and vice versa!

Every Retrograde is unique, per the signs, the planet, the connections made with other planets during their retrograde cycle. Mars will be doing business 28 Capricorn to 9 Aquarius, establishing innovative community liaisons and Internet presence. He opposes Sun at 4 Leo from 4 Aquarius. Activation, independence, Fatherhood, leadership and freedom will be important. Mercury will cover 11 to 23 degrees in fire sign Leo the sign of the Sun! He lights the arena, speaks from the heart. Teaching and sharing mean a lot. In Leo puts his personal stamp on the way things are said, is specially himself and like no other.

The last Mercury Rx was in fire sign Aries, Mar’s sign. These fire signs can be untouchable, scare you witless, be devastating, purifying, or warm your very Soul. They raise you up when you are down. Starshine lights your nights and the Sun shines on your day.

Mars started his cycle May 12 in Capricorn. Three days later, on the May 15 New Moon, Uranus moved into Taurus for the first time in 84 years! The same day, Mars moved into Aquarius, Uranus’s sign. What a bold are rare start! Uranus will change the Earth herself, Mars will be the champion in her behalf! In Taurus, Uranus’s pace will be slowed somewhat, but not in Earth matters! Mars will stand near, making sure Uranus doesn’t forget to use the electric jazz that is his natural talent!

May 25 through Aug 19 Jupiter makes his last two trines to Neptune, the entire period during the Mars cycle. It isn’t just that this lovely dreams-come-true trine happens, Scorpio to Pisces, but Mars indicates how we activate and do it! While in Capricorn he puts his shoulder to the wheel, builds, pushes, works overtime to set a strong foundation to make a place that properly supports the project. In Aquarius he looks for the most avant-garde possibilities to make it awesome. Electronics are the finest, community backing assures continued progress. Efficient sustainable results save money in the long term.

Mars Rx in Capricorn checks project status frequently, catching snafus or being sure changes are implemented promptly. Better techniques are incorporated as they are discovered. Short term nuisance, long term blessing. Bosses may change mid-course causing some more adjustments needing to be made. Some may lose their jobs yet, in time, find themselves in a better place. Fathers may fret over the right course to take with a child who seems to be in trouble. Get unbiased help from an experienced professional. Aging may require some changes. Allow for a slower recovery, possibly from a recurrence of an old health matter. Ask around to see how others have dealt with it. Do some good things for yourself and take some time out if possible.

Mars Rx in Aquarius may find themselves needing to be more free from all that work, even if it was your choice to do it! Time to be the consultant! Could be some new friends have caused a course change with their offerings, new ideas that have a broader reach are electrifying! Aquarius can be so fast that even Mars is having to hustle to keep up, and that’s rare! It’s gratifying to be first, on the cutting edge again, exultant to be the leader and wake people up right and left! Dashing to and fro, meeting people that support your ideas makes you come back to life. Some of it you may not understand yet, but you sense an outrageous potential! The old gray mare ain’t what she used to be!

During the time when Mars and Mercury are retrograde together, we have the Pluto-on-the-Ecliptic connected Aug 11 New Moon SuperMoon Solar Eclipse. They are turning the soil so to speak! Mars is at 0 AQ leaving square Uranus, about to return to Capricorn. The amazing inspiration of Uranus, AQ’s planet, and being in genius AQ, is right between our eyes, and Capricorn will build it! Mercury is at 14 Leo leaving square Jupiter in Scorpio. Mercury is bold and bright and big minded with a huge smile! He sniffed out some terrific ideas and is taking them home. Seeds in the planter!

How we think about it all is in Mercury’s mind. In Leo there is a wanting to outdo all others, to make it grand and mighty! Mental prowess is formidable, creative and inspirational! We are each called to contribute our best, to make it glow! Our hearts are strong and true. People see our story and want to join in. Changes will be needed to accommodate the new fit. Colors and lighting will change, our presentation, how we dress, our hair, nails even! Some will be a little bossy, and that may be a relief that someone took charges, or we may find ourselves being bullied, or not credited with our contribution. Keep it square. Leos aren’t always quick on their feet adaptable, but they mean well. Come at it a little more gently ~ see how that works. Everybody stay with your exercise programs.

Mars’ second station, standing ‘still’ at the retrograde/direct turning point, focuses intently in Capricorn, steeping in wisdom, the experiences of the ancestors, gathering strength. It starts being within one degree of this turning point on Aug 16th and continues there until Sep 8. Stay in your integrity, respect all beings.

While Mars is finishing the third part of his cycle, Aug 27 to Oct 8, he returns to Aquarius Sep 10. Sep 12, Jupiter makes his last sextile with Pluto. Jupiter is in Scorpio, a mixed combination of a fiery impetuous planet in a you better do it right sign. Jupiter wants to tell all and Scorpio gives a look of warning that you believe. Ok, we’re looking for middle ground here? A sextile is a good aspect of opportunity, but probably not about telling secrets, or you get the scoop and the Pulitzer. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn, holds the power of the law though, so you better be sure before you tell that story – scandal, libel. Even though Mars is not at close degree of the sextile, in Aquarius he is definitely a rabble rouser and may throw both Jupiter and Pluto off balance. They can see the wild card coming. So find a way to get the information out that will prosper for all in a good way. Don’t wait to be caught; turn it to your favor.

Sep 25 Chiron returns to Pisces. He sees the exquisite compassion or the devastating downfall, sometimes of drugs and disability. He returns to a remarkable insight, revelation of Spirit that was clouded before. He has been ahead in Aries and now carries the great sword of fire to cut away the pain of having been harmed, cauterize old psychically bleeding wounds, to release misunderstandings we carried that weighed us down. The healer/teacher has stepped up to the plate, no longer so easy going, letting us be in our stew, but insisting we make changes. Period. Time to get up. He has seen more about how it has been done, is here to take us the next step. On your feet, we can do this.

Much shall have happened as we approach Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30!

Astrology chart of Mercury starting Retrograde July 25, 2018 during Mars Retrograde.

Mars Mercury Double Retrograde 2018 Astrology Chart

Note the T Square – red triangle: Mars, Uranus at point, Sun/North Node. There will be some challenging surprises! See that pretty little bow? It is continuously linked by the green lines across the top of the chart! It is crosslinked by Moon trine Venus/Venus trine Pluto, and Jupiter trine Neptune! Two trines for money and wellbeing, two feminine planets – Moon and Venus, plus learning, dreaming and spirituality and happy magical traveling! Wow!

Aspects during the retrogrades

Mars makes most powerful aspects while he is in Aquarius! May 15, 16 Mars sextiles Chiron, squares Uranus. During his Retrograde, Aug 1 and 12 he squares Uranus then sextiles Chiron. The third set is Sep 10 and 18, sextile Chiron, square Uranus. Mars activates Chiron’s awareness of what needs healing, opens gates to the future and starts further healing with unusual techniques either new to you or new to the planet! On the daily earthly plane, Mars square Uranus in Taurus can be accidents – knives, autos, electronics. Taurus can be trucks, ground to air transportation, earth pockets/volcanic, quakes. Maybe not the time to go spelunking, hang gliding or skydiving. If your 6th sense says don’t, then don’t.

If you are not one to take chances, maybe this will be just the aspect to make you give it a try, but choose leaders with experience and integrity. Sun trine Mars gives prowess and a lucky winner May 25; Jupiter trine Neptune gives protection. The Aug 1 and 12 square Uranus sextile Chiron have more protection because they are followed by Jupiter trine Neptune Aug 19, but still chancy. Mercury trines Mars June 1 and Sep 23. Good use of gear, quick responses.

Three times aspects Mercury makes are square Jupiter in Scorpio, and a yod to Neptune and Pluto. Square Jupiter may disagree on which way to go, which school to select, has the best teachers. Ethics may be important to your life, who to hang out with. Perspective can be crucially important. Exaggeration or lies, misrepresenting, could be costly. We can be expecting too much, be overwhelmed. Privacy and trust or too much truth and way too chatty? Or you win the lottery, and, oh, dear, what shall I do?! LOL Some problems diminish in importance as you get used to the idea and find excellent solutions.

Mercury yod, at the point of a ‘Y’ with Neptune and Pluto is a tough place for playful Mercury in Leo to sit. Leo loves a great performance blazing with remarkable colors and making sounds that heaven can hear! Neptune in Pisces can go with the flow but will eventually retreat to the ashram and meditation, solitude. Woops, did I hurt their feelings? Pluto in Capricorn may join you if he likes your style, but more likely he will be far more proper, conservatively snatching glances at your debauchery, interesting but certainly not really professional. Hmm…yet the employees seem to like it. Well, ok, maybe again next year. In Leo, Mercury can seem like a me, me, me, person and that can be good. Personal experiences can come from the heart and make us all human together, warts and all. If anyone can give a radiant talk on the amazing upcoming project, they can, and have you eating out of their hand! Rewards welcome! The more quiet watchers marvel and are glad to have them. They couldn’t have said it better, at all! Hat’s off!

If either Retrograde connects with your chart, consider these options!

Prepare well. Mars in Capricorn it is tool safety, architectural instruments, maintenance, repairs freezers, earth movers, forklifts. Get mechanical items serviced. Mars in Aquarius especially involves vehicles, bicycles, drones, mechanical and electrical items. In general it means phones, new apps installations and learn to use them with ease, computers, internet.

During the retrograde, unplanned work is likely, project course corrections, rehires and job shifts. Change your appt book right away when there are adjustments, call in advance to make sure they made the change at their end too. Make follow up appts because we know automatically things will require further adjustments. It isn’t done for Mercury until the 3rd phase is done Sep 1, Mars Oct 8!

Take big promises with a grain of salt. Mars in AQ can be super spontaneous and sweep off on an extraordinary new project in seconds! One great link leads to another! If it’s better for all, go for it. In Capricorn, don’t fall for too much pessimism. Keep working but keep watch. During Mercury Rx, give the benefit of the doubt to those Leo wishes. They can pull off amazing things, and with Jupiter trine Neptune the odds are in their favor!

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

After the Retrograde! In the third phase, the direct part when the retrograde is finishing, tidy up. Take a look at the devastation and debris. You did it! How much of that did you need anyway? Reorganize. Keep it light. Cherish what you are left with, polish it up, integrate it well. Make further plans with what goes well with you. Follow up on the best ideas. Get connected with some good people going your way, ones who can keep pace with you! Grab one or two or three experienced consultants in your field and hear them all out. Merge some of your and their ideas and plans. Not all of their particular options may be ones you use now, maybe later, but they get you thinking and started! Yes! It’s likely to turn out much better than you expected! Collaboration makes things multiply! Each of you can promote the main project from your special vantage points!

Keep your chin up, eyes open, listening ears on and get to it!
