New Moon!  Four Planets in Pisces, Mercury Cardinal T Square, Venus!

First New Moon of 2017 is Friday January 27, 4:07 PM Pacific at 8 Aquarius 15!

View larger  Milky Way over Arecibo, Puerto Rico by Ferdinand Arroyo. From its completion in 1963 until July 2016 Arecibo Observatory’s 1,000-foot (305-meter) radio telescope was the world’s largest single-aperture telescope.

Aquarius is a fantastic sign! Aquarians have amazing minds, from scrambled to genius, bodies unlike no other, have been to the wildest places, have friends beyond your ken. With both the Moon and Sun in the same place at the same moment it’s like high wires sizzling! Don’t expect the usual blather or time to stand still. It’s like twins with their own language, only these Beings are tuned in to the Galactic Center, the hub of our galaxy that connects with other galaxies! If your chart has factors at or very close to 8 degrees, you will be on the Grid with them and catch some of the Universal News! New Moons end one cycle, begin another. Aquarius makes it snappy!

The semi sextile with Neptune, in its own sign Pisces, will catch rare bits of script that will cast a spell over passages, some becoming illuminated like a lightning bolt, alive to the point of making you think you will leave your body! Other parts will be placed in the denial category to be sifted later by the subconscious into tolerable proportions. Insights and visions of the semi sextile, and the three other planets in Pisces, will be as vivid dreams that seem so real you don’t believe they didn’t happen, and when they do, you WILL remember!

Venus in Pisces

The preceding Jupiter inconjunct Chiron in Pisces of Dec 31 feathers out its new ideas about healing, spreads the word among colleagues and contacts, polishes the local artifacts, draws out beauty and charity. They are steadily in their inconjunct until they do it again exact on Valentine’s Day! Venus just went by Chiron in her gypsy veils, gave Chiron a sweet kiss. Been awhile since someone noticed him that way. So he is warmed and charmed, gave her a gift. She told Jupiter about it and he, in her sign Libra, thinks the information can be taught, maybe published!

As she squares Saturn, she makes him remember his square with Chiron Dec 28, what sorrows that may have brought, perhaps bittersweet breakthroughs too that still may need some repairs and integration. Venus may have doubts, moments of hesitation, need to comfort or lend a hand. She assures him there are dear Soulmates out there and his time will come. He assesses how well she is doing, reminds her of the long term goals and how important they are. She straightens, yet we know she will do it her way in Pisces, as she must. She is even more a believer in Pisces, but good old Saturn is the task master and he knows being on time can make or break our progress. We know he is right, so we get back on course with renewed focus.

Venus is then on her way to bless Mars in Pisces, but he quickly changes into his own sign Aries! He changes the same day as the New Moon, at 9:39 PM Pacific! The next day is Chinese New Year, the year of the Red Fire Rooster! How apropo that Mars, the red fire planet, is in Aries, the red sign, right on time for that day! He leaves Venus behind while she begins to slow to retrograde, so the connection isn’t made. They may converse about Piscean matters, but he has to carry her wishes on without her. Likely he will because she asked him so kindly and in Aries he takes action! He is, after all, the Champion, the Hero!

Jupiter sextile Saturn in Sagittarius has been and is still quite close, but Jupiter is backing away, stilling to retrograde Feb 5. So they discuss the projects, but for the time being Saturn will need to carry the building forward while Jupiter thinks things over in Libra. Jupiter will think on who does which work best, proportions – how much of this and that, beauty versus necessity. They will come back together, make their exact connection, complete their project Aug 27.

Cardinal T Square! Mercury potently conjunct Pluto, Square Uranus and Jupiter! Cardinal signs gets things started! Mercury is very earthly logical, practical in Capricorn, and looks at the extremes with Pluto. From birth to death, poverty to billionaires, cheating to ’til death do us part, impotent to charismatic! Uranus in Aries lights the Spirit afire, may have burnout, leave outgrown friends behind only to find ones with ideas far ahead of their times. It may be alone or working on an international project that uses every minute fraction of their mental physics, consumed with creation! All this calls Jupiter in Libra to record the story, recode it for the lay person. Jupiter is not afraid of far reaching effects, expands the territory with alacrity! It requires Jupiter’s ability to grasp the magnitude of the perceptions then balance them cleverly in Libra so there is a stunning play of wholeness achieved! The Aquarian overtone adds the innate need for it to work as above, so below, as in nature, air over Earth.

Amongst all the unpredictable Aquarius New Moon, Jupiter loving switching sides in Libra, Venus sashaying about, all that mutable morphing Pisces, and Mercury stirring the Pluto point of the cardinal get-things-started brew, know that you don’t know! It may take months to decipher what happened! It will be computers and beyond computers. It will be the most pristine data but put together in a way that defies what most people think and will even make Aquarians wonder!

It is a perfect first New Moon for 2017! Earth, Science, and Heavenly Magic!

Full Snow Moon! LUNAR ECLIPSE!

LUCKY Grand Fire Trine Sun KITE, Mystic Rectangle, Chiron Yod, Two Midpoints!

Friday February 10, 4:33 PM Pacific at 22 Leo 28

Moon Setting Eclipse Patrick Cullis Indian Peaks Boulder Colorado

A big eclipsed Moon setting in the early morning hours of December 10, 2011. The Indian Peaks are a series of peaks on the continental divide near Boulder, Colorado. By amazing photographer Patrick Cullis

The First Eclipse of 2017 has a complex bouquet, is laden with opportunities!

This is a rare total Penumbral Eclipse! The Moon moves through the faint, outer part of the Earth’s shadow. It is often hard to differentiate between a normal full Moon and a penumbral eclipse of the Moon, but watch closely, at the time, for deep penumbral shading on the north half of the lunar disk! The apparent diameter of this Moon is larger than average since the eclipse occurs 4.4 days after perigee (nearest Earth).

It is still a line up, Sun, Earth, Moon. Aquarius Sun will shine on the part of Earth facing the Sun, infusing his Light. In light wave fashion, Sun moves the molecules, Earth transmits and filters this energy to Mother Moon waiting in the Shadow. Moon in Leo is receptive, absorbent, generously cradling, nurturing. She returns her own Light of the heart, delicately mingling, intertwining like DNA flowing both directions, with the incoming Light, through Earth, back to Sun, giving her support, showing how much we care. She has a lot of Love to give.

Full Moon at 22 degrees is most closely tied with Chiron at 22 Pisces. Sun semi sextiles its neighbor. Moon is inconjunct, an aspect of peripheral awareness and adjustment. What might have started as a nuisance, a sense of being misaligned, becomes an adjunct factor that invites and enriches. It is less directly involved, so has less bias. It could even become the next branch, or the new main direction! Moon is a nurturer and senses Chiron’s needs though in Pisces they can seem more whimsical than real. If there are debilitating addictions, it is more serious. Moon is experienced and sees the nuances of value, and in Leo is uplifting. Moon in Leo may always be concerned to do its best, be on. Chiron sees any weaknesses and subtly advises reasonable moderation and self care. Chiron may be able to do some oblique healing from that off center angle.

Chiron YOD! With Chiron’s inconjunct Moon, it is also inconjunct Jupiter, a more long term aspect, forming a ‘Y’! The inconjunct with Jupiter is strong, because as Chiron moves forward into it, Jupiter is retrograding back to meet it! Their first exact aspect was Dec 31, 2016, the last aspect of 2016. It is holding now closely until it makes the second exact aspect on Valentine’s Day! The adjustment this inconjunct requires is a fine tuning of our beliefs, acknowledging healing needed, updating how we teach and speak, our life work and relationship choices. Those are big topics. One alone would be big, but now they are unifying as a whole! Jupiter wants you to look further ahead, to add good will, trust you will do ok, to connect you higher up the food chain in a good way. Allow that!

Chiron is at the semi sextile MIDPOINT between Sun and Uranus. The amazing astronomical geometry about the Chiron/Uranus combination is that it started Nov 2008 and continues through Sep 2021, a total of THIRTEEN years!  See more The Sun of this Eclipse lights it right up! Sun semisextiles Chiron, sextiles Uranus, the Aquarian planet! Chiron watches, perhaps silently, in Pisces, noticing the beauty of their bringing the masses to a new level of awakening, how our differences are our contributions. New songs are written in a flash, an acceptable unique style arises! A penumbral Eclipse is a subtle wellspring. Sun/Uranus will use blatant excitement and wild word cues that spark curiosity that had lain dormant but is now eager! Chiron may whisper a caution here or there, or lean forward when the cues are perfectly unzipped!

LUCKY Grand Fire Trine Sun KITE, Mystic Rectangle!

Only one point is missing, the Gemini position, to make a Grand Sextile! See all those connected green lines in the chart?! Moon bases a Grand FIRE Trine KITE pattern!

The Mystic Rectangle is composed of two parallel trines, Moon trine Uranus and Sun trine Jupiter! The Rectangle is completed by sextiles, Moon sextile Jupiter, and Sun sextile Uranus! SO many lucky aspects! Read on….

The Grand trine Kite is the Moon, Saturn, Uranus Grand trine with the Sun midpoint between Saturn and Uranus is the KITE!

  • Moon trines Saturn in Sagittarius, a Mother to Father Time arrangement. There is harmony with the softness of women and the sweetness of children. Saturn is the Father, securing shelter, working for a long good life. Leo and Sagittarius are both teachers, so educational choices are blessed. Leo is a creator sign, of expression like performance, and through color and lighting. Saturn in Sagittarius so wants their project to excel, have a long life, contribute meaningfully. Their collaboration potential is exceptional.
  • Moon trines Uranus in Aries, the planet of friendship, awareness, awakening, international community! Moon is your neighborhood, local community. Uranus is friends and world community! Moon is commodities of daily living, Uranus is the inventor that makes daily life more comfortable and fun. Moon has the memory banks of the matriarchy, history, an intuition that can’t be beat! Uranus is the holder of a hub of insights of future possibilities. Together there is a blessed alliance, rich progress!
  • Saturn trine Uranus is a long term aspect, first happened Christmas Eve, Dec 24. It will retrograde soon and return to the trine, but not until May 18. It is within 4 degrees now, still mulling over how it will fold good changes into working living, how to repair any damages or difficulties that change has brought. Saturn is persistent, wants to put things to good use. Though it is moving away for the time being, that doesn’t mean it is giving up, not coming back. In Sagittarius it will have a good look about and discover more successful ways of making changes that bring better living, to broaden our range of possibilities.
  • Sun in Aquarius is sextile MIDPOINT right between Saturn and Uranus making the KITE pattern! Saturn was the old ruler of Aquarius, Uranus is the current ruler of Aquarius! Earthy Saturn rules ancient things, archaeology, while airy Uranus rules inventions, planes, computers, the Internet! Times are bound by Saturnian Earth laws that will always be, by Karma and Dharma, what we have done and our mission each life. Uranus explores the outer reaches, keeps calling us forward in evolution, offers new ways to align disparate beliefs, awakens whole groups of people to their potentials! The Sun, Leo’s planet, puts warmth in this process, lights the way with love and heart that gives us the courage to step up! Strong friendships and community and world networks will figure in prominently.

Jupiter in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries knits this lucky pattern even further! Jupiter offers the blessings of connections both local and foreign, education, abundance possibly through grants and scholarships. Jupiter trine Sun, is a hella lucky, fame & fortune aspect! It gives an exemplary sense of personal confidence and trustworthiness, far reaching vision, enjoyable potential. Jupiter sextile Moon is another lucky prosperous aspect! Moon intuitively knows cycles, excellent for stock trades and investments. Moon gives Mother love, is strong and protective, while Jupiter supports relationships with peoples of different cultures, economic standing, faiths, ages.

Saturn sextiles Sun and trines Moon! Saturn is a grounding planet though now in Sagittarius is its more flexible in its demands. It may be more opinionated, but if a better way is demonstrated, it will make the change. Sun in Aquarius wants to be free and is easily bored, but Saturn in Sag can be wise enough to favorably gain their attention and contribute to the Sun’s research and international work. Saturn is at times a little old fashioned and stuffy and that is something Aquarius will never be! Saturn has to come up to speed in modern terms sometimes so things can progress in context of our current times. Yep, ok, understand, will do. See Moon trines Saturn above.

Another long term aspect is Saturn square Chiron. This one was exact the first time Dec 28. For some it brought sorrows and losses of all kinds depending on how it was with their personal charts. We lost Zsa Zsa Gabor, George Michael, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds and William Christopher in that period. The next exact aspect is April 30, and the last Nov 2. Saturn are things we are held responsible for, in Sagittarius it has to do with faith, learning, promoting, being ethical, truth without exaggeration or omits. Chiron in Pisces can be fragile or a powerful believer with profound visions. Saturn is a hard worker and will expect them to measure up, find ways to get the job done. Chiron invites Saturn to let go of chronic matters, rigid boundaries, harsh expectations. Some things are just bigger than we are and we must let go and grow with them, time changes the parameters. Sometimes a gentle approach with encouragement tips the scales.

Jupiter sextiles Saturn in Jupiter’s sign Sagittarius! Jupiter is still close though retrograding away. They have been together for months, so the considerations their combination brings is gradually seeping into our consciousness. It’s a working arrangement fueled by legal and amazing design advice, plus Saturn’s expertise at building structures that suit the environment. Work is a pleasure, education pays off, travel is a welcome component!

Apart from all the aspect network above, Mercury, also in Aquarius, is sextile Venus in Aries at the same degree, and Mars in its own sign Aries! This is a combination of brilliant intelligence! Mercury with Venus is the blessing of kind words, words that show love, are spoken like poetry, give appreciation! Aquarius and Mars and Aries are looking for freedom and independence. They can act potently alone, but paradoxically once they are free enough, mature in their Spirits, they are are free to choose to work together and in groups when it makes sense. There is that phrase, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Venus is slowing to retrograde March 4, so it doesn’t make the conjunction with Mars. She’s close enough to give Mars the current information, the inspiration of her gratitude! He will fight in her behalf, loves being the instigator, first one there, the fearless chief! He rises to challenge with super vitality!

Though Full Moons are oppositions, Moon opposite Sun, this one is laced with favorable connections. And if we think of planets opposite each other that doesn’t have to mean they are against each other. Think incorporation, collaboration! Each has their gift to give. In this case, Leo is the sign of the heart of Light, lovers! Valentine’s Day is the Aquarius holiday! Aquarius is the philanthropist, distributes wealth, has planet wide connections and projects for people, initiates environmental healing and maintenance. It is brotherly love, just a different dimension of the possibility of love in its wholeness!

With all my praises of these aspects, all those positive blue and green lines in the chart, they won’t be good for everyone, or will have no effect at all. They will only be good for those whose charts they activate in a good way. Please see your astrologer to find how they are situated per your personal chart. Also, the time of day events are initiated makes a huge difference and those times of day are not the same for every person. Please. See your astrologer.

That said, I wish you great success!

Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio/Libra 2014. Couple Glasses Sunset

Oct 23 Comment! ONLY TWO MORE DAYS OF MERCURY RX! Mercury directs Oct 25 at 12:17 PM. As he goes forward, he covers the same ground for the third time until Nov 10. Mercury is now in Libra, reenters Scorpio Nov 8. This period of time will solidify our changes of thinking, give us a chance to put it in place in our lives, including all the goodies from during Sweet Week! Review the Mercury Rx words, the same matters are still at hand. Relationships will simmer down, financial partnerships will adjust and settle to each person being in their best suited position. Social life will become easier for many; political scuffles will be better done as experience seasons the warriors, both the underdog and the powers that be. Some will discover they have rights; others will make stronger alliances to oppose them as it becomes apparent times are changing. Keep your backside covered. Just because someone smiles at you doesn’t mean they agree with you and won’t oppose you. Stay true to your Center, speak your words in a good way. Keep your balance; be aware of the encompassing energy of all directions, as well as above and below.


2014’s last Mercury Retrograde! Each retrograde this year has straddled water and air signs, Pisces/Aquarius, Cancer/Gemini, now Scorpio/Libra. Air signs are thought to be thinkers, ones who make connections. The nurturing quality of Water signs keeps those ideas and connections alive and thriving!

The start of any Retrograde Cycle is way before the Retrograde dates. This one started Sep 14, when Mercury got to 16 Libra. Mercury is advancing to 2 Scorpio, retrogrades Oct 4 at 10:02 AM Pacific, returns to 16 Libra Oct 24, the date it turns direct/forward. By Nov 10 it retraces its steps to 2 Scorpio. Those degrees 16 Libra to 2 Scorpio are traversed 3 times! Takes the time it takes, and it just gets better and better.

Libra is our relationships, marriage, partnership, the nature of our bonding. It’s a smart sign, perceptive, considering, concerned with the well being of all concerned. Where it occurs in our charts shows in what way our personal emphasis is about relationships. Get your chart free at Astro.com! You need your birthtime for this.

First House: Our relationship with our Self, our personal part
Second: Personal Finances, Values, our Body
Third: How we think/communicate, who we think of
Fourth: With our Parents especially Mother, Children, Country
Fifth: How we create, express ourselves, have romance
Sixth: Service, Health, Pets, how we are organized
Seventh: Marriage, Relationships, Beauty, Partnerships, Culture
Eighth: Finances with others, sharing deep intimacy, healing
Ninth: Ethics, Life Purpose & Planning, Education
Tenth: Career, Father/Boss, Structure of Life, Responsibility
Eleventh: Friends, Change, Freedom, Community
Twelfth: Spiritual, Dreams, Art/Music, Compassion

Scorpios deeply want to share. They donate to research, are intimate to a spiritual degree, set up non-profits, and are keen corporate leaders, put marriage monies together and buy the house! They know that working together multiplies power for the good. Libras have fine social skills, negotiating expertise, bring well matched people together. Equitable contributions from each, Libra and Scorpio, complementary spirits, can dove tail for metamorphic results.

Retrograde relationships! Both Libra and Scorpio are relationship signs. Scorpio especially often has ‘memory’ of past life relationships. Retrograde often returns what was lost, items, people. The future returns from the past. If an old flame returns, first remember why you went different ways. Souls often make progress checks, maybe that’s all the return is about. Take care of as much as you can that was unfinished; give thanks to that person. Sometimes, what wasn’t possible then can work now. Sometimes. A lot of relationships started during retrograde are brief. Often a person who leaves during Rx returns!

Mercury Retrograde typically has mind changes, missed appointments, paperwork and computer snafus, lost items. Verify, confirm everything. When traveling keep valuables with you. Lapses can mean losses. Get good warranties, return policies. If you must go ahead, work with experienced experts to avoid pain and nuisance, like of escrow. If you can, wait to take a new job, move, buy a car, make important choices, financial or personal. That said, let me tell you about ‘Sweet Week!’ If aspects are good, changes are often for the good. You may wish resolution would happen sooner, but wait for it! What comes will be better than you expected.

Libra Mercury Rx during SWEET WEEK Oct 12 to 20! 

During our Retrograde, while Mercury is back in Libra, we have a sweet series of aspects apropos of Libra. Libra generally prefers harmony, but also admires an honorably fair debate with an ‘intelligent’ outcome. Take on some challenges. Lots of options to get through the passage successfully.

Sunday Oct 12th is the day, with several sweet inner planet combinations *part of the chart of the 12th. Some are not part of the chart, also sweet, and becoming exact during the following days! Here’s the layout in PACIFIC times:

Oct 12        X  Moon in Gemini         Have a great chat
XX10:57 AM   Moon sextile Uranus    Best buds, friends forever. Awakening XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX moments.
XXX2:34 PM   Moon trine Venus        Blessed relationship. Abiding beauty.
XXX5:35 PM   Moon sextile Jupiter    Lucky. Ask and ye shall receive. Justice. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Education.
XXX9:04 PM   Moon trine Sun           Classic male/female harmony. The Lights.
XX10:12 PM   Moon opposite Mars    This one can be quick on the trigger, XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX grumpy. Afternoon sex is better, believe me. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX :)

Oct 14   *Venus sextile Jupiter   Charmed, I’m sure. Looks good, turns out to be even better! Loving and learning together. Go to the seminar. Happy traveling! Publish the romance epic!
Oct 15   *Sun sextile Mars  Great sex, passionate, exotic, maybe goes on a little trip? Propose your new ideas.
Oct 16   Sun conjunct Mercury Retrograde   Heart is the word! Say it with Love and Light!
Oct 16   Mercury Retrograde in Libra sextile Mars   Fast thinking and smart action! Quick resolutions, new beginning on the journey of a lifetime! Uh, your mind on sex! :) Great sport and a whole lotta fun!
Oct 17   Mercury Retrograde conjunct Venus, both in Libra!  A crown of beauty worn before! Poetry rekindled. A Blessingway of words to be cherished and spoken again and again. Sweet surrender.
Oct 19   *Venus sextile Mars.   Lovers with class initiating a Path of spiritual meaning. New financial action, plans with long term opportunities possible. A successful escape!
Oct 20    Mercury Retrograde sextile Jupiter.  Profound words, naming the potential. Retrograde repeats. Make it good again and again! The wanderer returns. We meet again….

Here is the chart of the exact Moon trine Venus Oct 12th at 2:34 PM in Santa Barbara CA! Yes, the Moon is opposite Mars, a tempery combo with some muttering and possible nagging, hopefully good humored with Mars in Sagittarius, and with Moon in Gemini it can be talked out, doesn’t last long. Mars trine Uranus wants to be friendly, and may be quickly thoughtful and keep Mars cool, even inspiring. Mars and Moon also make the Kite pattern! Mars is the third planet in the Grand Fire Trine (blue lines), and Moon at midpoint links the Jupiter super trine Uranus with two sextiles (the green lines)! Communications specialists! In fact, this chart is just one point short of a Grand Sextile, a Star of David! In addition, the two blue parallel trine lines linked by green lines at each end, form a Mystic Rectangle, another great aspect set!

Have a sweet time!

Venus Libra Divine Feminine Grand Square Cross Aug 2013

Aug 21, the last day of Leo, Jupiter in Cancer finished and started!  It made the last aspect of the TSquare it has been traveling through since July 17, with its square to Uranus in Aries.  And it made the last aspect of the Grand Water Trine, to Chiron in Pisces.  Yet both of these aspects are the firsts of three.  Jupiter will square Uranus two more times, Feb and April 2014.  Jupiter will trine Chiron Feb 2014 at almost 12 degrees and, last time, in May 2014 at 17 degrees.

Aug 25 we do and don’t have another Star of David, Grand Sextile, Hexagon! 
Yes, all the Water and Earth signs have planets in them.  But the degree connections between them don’t meet my specs.  If you use a 5 degree range, to show the Star lines drawn in, the Moon, has to be at 6+ degrees Taurus to sextile Jupiter, which has now moved ahead to 12 degrees.  This is important because this is the only way the Moon fills the 6th point to make the Star at all!  In the Star of July 29, the Moon immediately connected to every planet in the Star, all the aspects activated and applying (upcoming)!  In this one, several aspects have passed by the time Mama Moon connects with Jupiter.  The Moon shall have already made her trine to Sun and Mercury in Virgo, and the sextile to Neptune in Pisces.  Which really doesn’t matter because Jupiter is at 11/12 degrees while the Sun and Mercury are at 2 and 3 degrees, just too far away from each other to make that 6th sextile, point of the Star.  That is more range than I use for active aspects.  So, by my standards, no, we don’t have a 2nd Star of David.

What we do have is Venus, in one of its own signs, Libra, continuing the TSquare that Jupiter finished the 21st, making a Cardinal Grand Cross/Square, that starts Aug 20, culminates the 27th!

Venus adds desire!  In Libra, it quickly, on balance, evaluates the worth of the results of the TSquare, instigates new action (cardinal signs) on point, carries the energy forward a few more days, makes sure important liaisons to get the job done are made.  If the TSquare released raw results, Venus insists on more elegance, mercy.  Just because things didn’t go our way, it doesn’t mean what happened won’t pay off in time.  You weren’t wrong, just breaking through, maybe a bit of a rough ride.  This period would not be a traditional wedding choice.  But do shake the tree!  Nothing like a little chaos to make Magic!

  • Using a 5 degree range, it started Aug 20th, coming into range to square Pluto in Capricorn, exact Aug 24 at 2:59 AM Pacific.  Since it is mid of night, the strongest effect is essentially on the 23rd.  Consider who you do it with, how much you earn, whether it pleases you.  Take it easy on sugars.  Face it about the need to heal – bodily, emotionally, mentally.  Take time to socialize with people you trust and who are succeeding in a good way.  Share secrets and revelations sometime after the 27th.  Now could be too much too soon.  Obliterated or insightful.  Things need to be not just functional, but pretty too.  Wait on beauty treatments; you may never be quite pleased with that choice.  Financial differences of opinion likely.
  • FYI Aug 25 there are 4 factors at 11 Degrees – Venus, Lilith, Chiron, and Uranus!  Lilith, just with Jupiter, is retrograde square Uranus!  Outrageous Lilith with unpredictable Uranus!  More about women and the rights of the People.  Shadows.  Dark in the Light; Light in the Dark.
  • Aug 26 Venus opposes Uranus in Aries.  Unique but acceptable.  Attractively wild and free.  Sporadic gains, but generally upward.  Beauty and the Beastie!  Shockingly rude or grace beyond belief!  Separated from your friends, possible breakups.  Wait to talk until times are more stable a few days after the 27th.  Build a bridge to the group you would like to serve with.  Give a smile to a stranger, even if you don’t get your way.  Odd.  Don’t take the plane?  Distractions – pay attention where you are going.  A one woman adventure or millions at one.
  • Aug 27, Venus finishes the Grand Cross with its square to Jupiter in Cancer.  A lot to lose, a lot to gain.  It was just too much.  The cost, too much to do, too big a ceremony.  You didn’t want to go there, but were intrigued.  It wasn’t fun, but you learned.  You had to surrender your plans, another direction, another meaning.  Wait to re/decorate, buy materials.  Diversified or one pointed.  Ethical differences.  Faithless or faithful.
  • On the 27th Mars leaves Cancer, enters Leo!  Out of the house, no more cheffing, off to exercise, the games, the party!  Everything has been reassessed, now it’s time to take action, and do it your way!

Venus in Libra searches for peace, beauty in every breath every moment of every relationship.  It seeks pure values.  Be true.

This Grand Cross is part of the Leo Full Blue Moon!

2013 Grand Sextile, Star of David Astrological Chart - Lucky Moon Jupiter

This chart is for the exact Moon Sextile Jupiter at 12:12 PM Pacific.

6 Sides – follow the longer green lines, or the 2 big blue triangles!! A Hexagram! Beehives, turtle back patterns, snowflakes, the Giant’s Causeway – some call it the Wisdom Portal! Per Astrology all hexs have a Mercury (mind) association, the points are at 60 degree intervals, Mercury is the Planet of Gemini, Gemini starts at the 60th zodiacal degree.  Almost invariably, a Grand Sextile is formed when Mama Moon fills the 6th point and this one is no exception!  

Allowing a 5 degree orb (range), the Moon in Taurus sextiles Jupiter in Cancer starting at 2:21 AM Pacific, activating the strong Grand Sextile!  ALL the planets are linked one after another from 4 to 17 degrees, in Earth and Water signs!  There are the standard double trines, kites, mystic/golden rectangles, oppositions, more, and, in this case, a ton of squares, the red lines, challenges to planets at sextile midpoints! The emphasis with Sextiles is communications!

The first big blue trine/triangle is Neptune, Saturn and Jupiter/Mars at 4, 5, and 7/9 degrees.  Please see Jupiter Outer Planet Grand Trine of the Year! for more on this ‘Making the impossible, possible!’ rare Grand Trine!

The second big blue is Mama Moon, Venus and Pluto, at 7, 8, 9 degrees.  You see how all these degrees are 5 and less degrees apart!  These planets comprise the core Grand Sextile!  Moon and Venus are both feminine, mothers and lovers!  They can be soft and sweet, but also fierce protecting their loved ones!

  • Moon in Taurus wants stability, safety, steady income.  In one of Venus’s signs, she wants beauty, to be appreciated, has deep values.  Her body is important, usually physically strong.  Her love of outdoors, our Earth, often makes for a gardener providing food for the table.  Patient support of children is deeply appreciated.
  • Venus in Virgo loves the work, doesn’t mind the weeding.  She is wanting clean health, natural beauty, proper excellent quality foods.  She will keep you organized, increasing your productivity and effectiveness.  Little things do make a difference.  Both Taurus and Virgo like pets.  Taurus owns the property; Virgo is the manager.  Tauruses are famous for enjoying their comfort.  Virgos are natural worker bees, doing all kinds of services, having an array of skills.  Ask for the job.
  • In harmony with Pluto in Capricorn, they just might get the funding they have been looking for!  Common sense will make the right professional connections, and select a wise choice of well funded partners, both in business and love.  Health and living decisions about seniors will be loving and practical, peaceful, a relief.  Affection and kindness count.  No sneakies trying to get them to do what you want.  People know if they are being manipulated or trying to be tricked.  It just feels off, unsettling; then they get the grumpies.  So be upfront.  It will likely work out quite well, or at least you will know where you stand.

Mother Moon sextiles Jupiter exactly at 12:12 PM Pacific, a great lucky, abundant, positive aspect!  Moon then trines Venus in Virgo, beauty, health and money, exactly at 2:48 PM Pacific!  The period between is THE lucky window!   Venus is between her July 28 sextile Jupiter of easy abundance, and her 30th trine Pluto in Capricorn of wealth won of persistence, very favorably linking the Jupiter opposition Pluto, offering a tasty merger.  Partner up with prenups, or negotiate your divorce for the best for all.  The Sun in Leo is in close semisextile with Jupiter, and at the midpoint between Venus and Jupiter, charming, very lucky, vibrant! It’s ready to travel and have fun no matter what!

The Grand Sextile runs all day, until Mother Moon makes her last exact aspect, a sextile with Chiron in Pisces, at 10:53 PM Pacific.  Both Moon and Sun are in what we call ‘fixed’ signs, so expect what you start to stand the test of time.  There will be trials due to the squares, but there is such a number of traditionally positive aspects, the squares will be worth the work they will bring .  Best to see how it all sits with your natal chart – see an astrologer you trust to give you realistic pros and cons.  If you don’t have planets at those degrees, it may not affect you at all!  For those of you it does, it may be worth taking the grand chance!!!  Good luck to you all!


Saturn’s Star of David – North Polar Region!

Saturn has a built-in hexagram, Grand Sextile, if you will!  To astrologers, Saturn represents hard workers, strong structures, guardianship, age, archetypes, is a Wisdom Portal.

Heaven's Magic!  Jupiter sextiles Uranus only once!  June 26 to July 21, 2012

The day before the Chiron Sextile Pluto there is a Lunar Earthy Grand Trine!  The Moon in Taurus makes the trine with Mercury in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn!  Because there are planets in the midpoints of those trines on two sides, there are two KITE patterns formed!  One is with Mars at the Kite point between Mercury and Pluto, the other is with Chiron between the Moon and Pluto.  This double relationship with Mars and Chiron forms a Mystic Rectangle as well, with Uranus at the near midpoint between Chiron and the Moon, as if it were a ‘Mystic Rectangle Kite!’  Uranus is also at the far midpoint of Sun and Mars, forming a Yod.  To cap off all this terrific stuff, if you add the six degree Cancer Ascendant, at 1:19 AM Pacific in Santa Barbara, a Grand Sextile is formed!  That’s planets at all 6 points closely equidistant around the entire wheel!  That means the water signs are in on it too!

Moon and Mercury, emotions and mind, are creating outlets of perception for Pluto, Pluto can be ‘seen.’  Profound possibilities.  Insights about money, power, healing, intimate relationships.  In the Earth signs, the probabilities are practical, possibly sustainable, sustaining.  In the light of day they will probably stand the test.  Mars in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign, in accord with careful Mercury in Virgo, wants to move forward, take the chance, might be one in a million!  Chiron in Pisces at the Moon/Pluto midpoint, envisions a master plot of success whether business or marriage partners.  It is willing to attempt the healing process, forgive, but is careful, ever so sensitive to nuances.  Litmus.

Uranus in Aries between Chiron and the Moon is entirely not satisfied with keeping things the way they were, is A-OK ready to start fresh.  They are either going to balk or spark!  The change better be a smart option, Mercury in its own sign Virgo approved, or the Pisces Chiron is going to swim under a rock to hide, and the Moon in Taurus is going to so dig in.  Nope, not gonna.  Ok, complex situation, a lot of players, could be an overwhelm and fizzle.  But you get to take a look, can part it all out later, spin off the ideas that were presented.  Don’t lose the puzzle pieces!  Uranus linking Mercury of Quicksilver and Mars of motion, connects three unstable, creative, curious planets!  Mercury is intrigued, Mars wants to do it, Uranus wants change!  These, my friends, are a happy combination.  Mercury in Virgo could be a stuffy doubter, worrier, but not for long!  Mars can go off half cocked right here and now.  Uranus is looking much further ahead and afield – lightening, sound waves, quakes, an unalterable spiritual storm, for better or worse, often a bit of both!  I would say something is going to move.  Ride it.  Let the dust settle.  New and different, strangely, workable!

Not only does the Grand Trine have trines, considered by many to be the best planetary connections to have, but the Mystic Rectangle adds another trine, initiate Mars trine healer Chiron.  Incredible innovative prodding, probing healing from the bone to the soul!  The sword anoints, psychic surgery clears and opens, Spirit Guides attend.  Fire cauterizes, burns away the dross, transforms, Kundalini rises!  There’s no going back, the old place no longer exists.  A Grand Sextile is FINE!  It is considered to be the crème de la crème of communications.  No page unturned, all the steps are there.  In this case, Earth and Water, a fertile combination.  Spirit on Earth.

CHIRON in Pisces SEXTILE PLUTO in Capricorn SEP 6 Pacific!

This is the second, three more to come!  Sep 6, this powerful sextile is part of a Bow pattern, Mercury opposite Chiron, linked by their two sextiles with Mars and Pluto.  Mars and Pluto are old friends, both having to do with martial endeavors – Mars on the front line, Pluto sneaking into the enemy camp for supplies and information.  Both are healers in that Mars is a first responder, and Pluto goes in deep to finish the job.  Mars is a risk taker and it wouldn’t be fun for Pluto if there wasn’t some danger, secrets to uncover, a long shot in the offing.  (Harley in the garage.)  Chiron was a bit prudish, regardless of being a Centaur, and was a teacher, but definitely another kind  of healer, perhaps more of mind and herbal type things.  Sep 1 to Sep 6, Mercury is the curious observer/reporter and scribe, there to tell all the amazing stories, miracles scattered among them!  SEE MORE!

In your own life, check in with your various healers.  Take inventory both personally and of your business.  Is the feedback telling you it’s time for some innovative responses?  Have you been a little scared to take action?  Talk it over with trusted advisors, especially the accountant.  If it’s not productive, thank it and let it go.  Pay attention to the long term.  The three next Chiron/Pluto sextiles finish Feb 25, 2014.

Star Watcher’s Alert!  March 13, Beautiful annual Venus conjunct Jupiter in the evening sky!
———————————————————————————————————–

Trines are fine, sextiles some think are better, Grand Sextiles are vundebar!  Trines have all the same elements, unless they are at the cusps and slip across the margin.  Then they get a tad more interesting, a little spice with the dumplings!  Sextiles are mixed but harmonious elements, some thinking that adds more opportunity to the mix, more active.  Grand Sextiles complete the whole circuit.  And they aren’t so common, often occurring only briefly when the Moon, or Ascendant, slips into position making the circuit complete.  They have a Gemini flavor since sextiles are 60 degrees apart, starting with Gemini, 60 degrees from the first sign, Aries.  They can be only two kinds, fire and air, or earth and water.  This one is earth and water – common sense flowing, mud squishing between your toes, watering your garden, sewers and drainage, a working intuition, keeping our ocean clean, resting at the spa.  Lots of choices.

• March 6  5 Planet Earth Grand Trine, Moon Virgo! As the Moon enters Virgo 7:27 PM Pacific, it trines Venus and Jupiter in Taurus, and Pluto in Capricorn! Jupiter and Pluto are in turn trine Mars! By connections, we have a 5 planet trine! Love and beauty, play, and perfection all rolled into one! Mars says let’s do it!

• March 7 About 4 AM the Moon comes into close range of Mars, gives the Earth Trine some spike! The Moon activates Mars all day, making the conjunction in the afternoon at 3:28 PM. Definitely time for new projects, especially ones that involve physical action or courage and leadership.

• March 11 12:45 AM to 1:02 PM Pacific, we have a brief potent rare window formed by the Cancer Ascendant, that makes an amazing 4 Planet Earth Grand Trine/GRAND SEXTILE! Opportunities abound for Earth and Water people, with planets or factors from 0 to 10 degrees, involving Earth and Water ventures! The Moon is in Scorpio sextiling its ruler Pluto in Capricorn, an opportunity of emotion and power, intuitive healing. The Cancer Ascendant sextiles the Venus/Jupiter conjunction. It senses financial possibilities, loves people from afar, is willing to learn, a lot!

We are only one day off from the 3rd and final Jupiter trine Pluto, exact the 12th 9:31 PM Pacific! (Please see above.) Yes, Mercury is impatient at Station in Aries, retrograde the 12th/next day also, so be sure you want what you want, what’s up, because it may stay that way for some time. Because Mercury is camping next to unstable Uranus, what may stay is instability, but I can guarantee you won’t be bored and there could be incomparable returns!

• Mar 13   4 Planet Earth Grand Trine ALL PLANETS at 9 degrees! Chiron makes it a Kite! The 13th and 14th are a summary couple of days of an awesome set! This is the fat max of the Trines! That’s the day Venus exactly trines Pluto, and conjuncts Jupiter, trining Mars early AM the 14th! The 14th, Mars exactly trines Jupiter, then Pluto! If you love it, go for it, but, remember, Mercury is retrograde, so no surprise if you don’t land where you expect!

• Mar 15   5 Planet Earth Grand Trine, Moon Scorpio! Jupiter, Mars, and Pluto are still at 9 degrees, but the trine is fading as Venus leaves the nines. Missy Moon joins in, so if you forgot anything, take care of it now! She means business joining Pluto in Capricorn, and probably throws Pluto off his stride for a bit, though it will likely be interesting to see what comes to (moon)light! The 9th degree is still key. 12:40 to 12:55 PM is the potent window.
