2019 New Year AstroLogical Chart! Bowl, Capricorn Stellium!

2019 New Year’s Day’s Bowl chart starts the year with a three planet Stellium in Capricorn that is part of the longest stellium of 2019!

  • Dec 22, 2018, the day after Winter Solstice/first day of Capricorn, the day of the Cancer/Capricorn Full Moon, to Jan 5, 2019,  three planets in Capricorn! Includes New Year.
  • Jan 5, the Solar Eclipse Capricorn New Moon, to Jan 6 Moon and Mercury join to make FIVE in Cap.
  • Jan 7 to 20, first day of Aquarius, Lunar Eclipse Full Leo/Aquarius SuperMoon, FOUR planets in Capricorn. Includes the Jan 13 Jupiter square Neptune, the first outer planets aspect of 2019.
  • Jan 21 to 23, three in Capricorn.

En total, 32 days! During those days there will be three Lunar events, the Cancer/Capricorn Full Moon, the Solar Eclipse Capricorn New Moon, and the Lunar Eclipse Full Leo/Aquarius SuperMoon! There are only three 5 planet stelliums in 2019. The next is in Virgo, the last is in Capricorn at the end of the year. Capricorn strongly starts and finishes 2019. Commitment, the Builder, achievement. It’s a cardinal earth sign that gets to the point, gets things done, and on time!

Briefly, in the New Year chart, Sun is about to conjunct Saturn, Capricorn’s planet! New Years always start with the Sun in Capricorn, the heart of our commitments, self-fathering. Mars is at Zero Aries, the first degree of the entire zodiac, rebellious as can be, a leader of new beginnings! Truly a fresh start! Both feminine planets, Moon and Venus, are in Scorpio looking after our underpinnings. Moon is sextile Scorpio’s planet Pluto, the healer, power broker, astute investor. Venus is embracing the deepest parts of Spirit in a Grand Water Trine with Chiron the Healer/Teacher in Pisces and the Moon’s North Node in Moon’s sign Cancer nurturing all. Water is sensitive, intuitive, often compassionate.

2019’s first aspect is Jupiter square Neptune. There is so much going on at times confusion reigns, things can get a bit hysterical – sometimes scary – you could get lost, but it can be both entertaining and delightfully rampant as well, depending on where you are standing! Jupiter in Sagittarius is aiming to expand Neptune’s range of attention, and that’s almost an inconceivable idea because Neptune, especially in its own sign Pisces, is so all encompassing to begin with! But Jupiter, robust and mostly innocent in his intent to be benevolent, is undaunted. Saturn follows each of the three Jupiter squares with his sextile to Neptune, calming things down. Sextiles offer opportunity, and out of chaos, practical Saturn extracts what’s usable and doable, condenses it, converts it to productive function.

Mercury in Sag is square old Chiron, whispering funny things to him, tickling him so he forgets himself! And Mercury is mischievously fire trining Uranus in Aries! Some of the craziest ideas will make the news and bring unexpected success, while the creators, Mercury & Uranus, are not surprised at all!

See the complete 2019 UPDATED Special Annual Edition! Especially see about the two major sister events of 2019 – the Transit of Mercury eclipse and Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center!

This same chart starts the 2019 Bowl Charts. 

Chart Planetary Patterns - Bundle, Bowl, Bucket, Locomotive, Seesaw, Splay, Splash
Chart patterns that result in us all approaching life so differently…

Rock-a-bye baby…the current Bowl Chart Pattern started in 2018 when outer planet Jupiter moved into Scorpio. Jupiter then became halfway across the wheel from Uranus, with all the other outer planets between them on one side. When Jupiter moved into Sagittarius the outer planets became even less than halfway! Each period when the Moon, Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars pass from Scorpio through Taurus at the same time, this ‘Bowl’ occurs, all the planets on one side.

Depending on the time of day you are born, the ‘Bowl’ may be at the bottom of your chart collecting, or over the top pouring out its collection or making shade or being an umbrella! At the sides of the chart it may act as a wind scoop or buffer, satellite dish receiver! And so it is symbolically with those of us who have this kind of birth chart. We may always be gathering, sheltering, protecting, guarding what’s ours.

Children, adults, born with Bowl charts can be introverted, very skilled, value their possessions. They love rolling around, but in what they see as their own territory! They may be self-contained with great inner strength. They can be super generous if their Bowl is over the top or tips out abundance. If their Bowl is at the side of their chart they may have super focus and awareness of their surroundings, echo back what they see. The Bowl below may wait to see what falls their way, keeping the keepers, pushing out what doesn’t fit or is outgrown.

Some astrologers say Bowl chart people ‘need’ the part of their chart that isn’t filled. I don’t find that to be true. Many are quite content being exactly who they are, doing what they love. Focused and intent as they are, working for perfection, they already have enough to do, LOL! They do their job, let others do theirs.

A little more about Bowls! In zodiacal order, the starting and ending signs are important as such, and they are usually opposite! They ‘know’ each other because they are opposite sides of the same coin so to speak. The first sign takes up the thread. The information is passed along, refined, enhanced, is the final product at the last sign. That ‘line’ side to side, across the edges of the top of the Bowl can be defining or, as others might see it, limiting. Remember that you are seeing it from your perspective, not theirs.

If the mid sign between the first and last signs is occupied, it takes on importance because it often aspects those beginning and ending signs equally, influencing their actions with the same flavor. That can be in a common configuration to Bowls called a T Square! T Squares are considered challenging, but some relish the challenge, and after all, if you live with it all your life, somewhere along in time, you learn to use it well. That sign at the belly of the Bowl is the T Square point. It may ‘take the point,’ supported by the rest of the planets, taking precedence over all the other signs in the Bowl!

Dec 2019 the same conditions that make Bowls will apply, but Jupiter will also be in Capricorn trining Uranus, in only a THIRD of the wheel Mar 27 to April 3, 2022! ALL the planets span only 104 degrees! That pattern called, a Bundle,, is the most rare! Exceptional people with fantastic specialty talents will be born! At that time, planetary events will have a singularity, others will be ‘neglected’ simply because there are no planets there. A person born in that period will become an expert – the rest is not their job. Pay careful attention to nurture the best in them just the way they are. Pay attention to their signals. Look ahead to those times so you can be in harmony with this extraordinary energy!

We will be living in a rare planetary time. As the coming years go by, the Bowl and Bundle charts will be common though Bundle charts are the most rare. 2020 Jupiter will be in Capricorn, Saturn will meander on ahead into Aquarius. Jupiter’s last conjunction with Pluto will be Nov 12, 2020, leaving Pluto to be the defining earliest planet. 2021 to June 2, 2024 Pluto and leading planet Uranus will be in less than a third of the chart! Many Bowl and Bundle charts will be possible. Jan 21, 2024 Pluto pops into Aquarius, Jupiter passes Uranus then trines Pluto June 2. From then on, the Bundle chart is not as tight, will soon exceed the degrees of the definition. When Jupiter makes it to Leo mid 2026, we are back to Bowl charts for a brief period. Then, Bowl charts won’t happen again until 2031. For Bundles it will be a long, long time as Uranus and Saturn move out of the trine/third from Pluto and the outer planets spread around the signs.

Many people, Souls, will be called on to have the much needed specialties of these charts to concentrate on planetary matters – environmental and social.

These 2019 dates are when the planets are in 1/2 or less of the chart making a Bowl Chart!

New Year to Jan 17
Jan 27 to Feb 14
Feb 23 to Mar 14
March 24 to April 10
April 22 to May 7

At this point Mars extends past the halfway point in the charts and doesn’t get to the opposite side, opposite Uranus until Nov 24. Moon is with Mars the same day and the other personal planets are also now in just half the chart again!

Nov 24 to Dec 9
Dec 21 to Jan 7, 2020

Many people born these two years will have this powerful configuration. Keep their Spirits well fed. They may quickly absorb, knead, devour, grind up, nibble and nosh, dispatch and dispose of what’s not needed or done with. They will take the polished results to the bank! It’s sort of like panning for gold – a little random, a lot likely!

Chance favors a prepared mind. ~  Louis Pasteur (a Bowl chart with SIX planets in Capricorn, sign of Science – 5 of those from 0 to 7 degrees!)

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 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!

Wesak Full Flower Moon!

Venus Grand Water Trine, TWO Fixed Stars are on the Full Moon axis!

Tuesday May 29 at 7:19 AM Pacific, 8 Sagittarius/Gemini 10

Gemini Full Flower Moon 2018

The Buddha’s Birthday, Wesak, celebration date is different in different countries. The United Nations will celebrate it May 29 in 2018! Please join a celebration in your area as fits your beliefs.

The second retrograde Jupiter in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces is followed by our Wesak Full Flower Moon spanning Sagittarius to Gemini. Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet, is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking often go with the territory. 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 psychic believer and dreamer 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 be taking a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time.

This Full Moon, the trine is especially blessed since Venus is joining them, making a Grand Water Trine! She is coming in at 11 Cancer and will trine Jupiter then Neptune exactly June 1 and 2! Jupiter can be an over honest good-time Charlie, yet in Scorpio sees deeply into our psyches, our deepest hurts and greatest powers. And makes us laugh anyway. Neptune in his own sign Pisces can seem oblivious, oozing along with no particular preference, but when on his feet, the whole Universe is tuned in and turned ON! He makes music beyond words that calls to every molecule in your body! You want to save the World. Venus in Cancer loves oh, so tenderly and is aware of every nuance of feelings. She has the softest touch, cradles you in her arms. She both prepares you to face your demons and comforts you when you have. She assists with memories, the subtle notes that call your Soul. She makes you care again and, after any crying is done, has the business skills to put you on the map! Jupiter has the funding, and Neptune has the Spirit!

The sacred journey is being planned; multilingual Gemini is spreading the Word! The recent Jupiter/Neptune trine, May 25 Pacific, was at 16 degrees, and stays close in degrees until the third and last one Aug 19, 2018 at 15 degrees. Though not in close degrees with the Full Moon, this Full Moon is the first within this span of Jupiter and Neptune traveling together. This is a period of possible dreams come true! Do some serious thinking May 29 through June 2 about what you would like to see happen. Set up the steps to be taken. Let it develop and grow. See more!

Gemini and Sagittarius, mind and meaning! 

Moon in Sagittarius runs away from home – and sometimes the grass really is greener! Already the little explorer instinctively knows there is much to observe, learned, find the greater meaning of. Philosophy and ethics are important. There is confidence and with big natural smiles they attract the help they need and travel in safety spinning memorably tall tales along the way. A broad perspective brings wisdom and justice. They are great athletes and winning gamblers! Their mothers may read to them from the very beginning, homeschooling no surprise.

Sun in Gemini is a strong quick thinker, speaks the words of the heart! Geminis cheer us to expand our thinking. Fathers have a special way of taking our hand, walking us along, listening to us. There is a radar for sincerity, knows when we are afraid, or in pain. In his huge capacity of experience, he is there when we go awry and lose our center amongst the amazing array of information we encounter. He shares his facts and covers the bases, is multifaceted, sometimes ambidextrous. There are so many possibilities! He is highly aware how important touch is, holds us close, yet encourages us to think for ourselves, shine our own light as we venture forth.

In the immediate background, the North Node and Saturn are at 7 degrees, the Full Moon just past them at 8 degrees. The North Node in Leo sextiles the Gemini Sun, trines the Moon. Both of those are classically positive aspects, opportunities for the Sun as the Node in the Sun’s sign Leo lights the way with courage and even bigger thinking! Makes you feel good to be your most glorious self! The Node invites the Sagittarius Moon to step forward as a coach with leadership stories based on personal experience. Nothing like real stories to inspire us to take that chance. If we fail at first, we know we can try again with a slightly different tilt! Gemini knows there are endless options; evolution is happening every moment!

Mercury is at 29 Taurus, the last degree, about to go 0 Gemini! All last degree points have a sense of maturity, finality, ending, hopefulness that the foundation is strong, ready for the next step of the journey. 29 Taurus is a little more serious being at the degree of the Pleiades, the Weeping Sisters. Also it rules the throat and strangling and hanging are not so good an ending. So be clear about how your life is heading. If you start feeling suffocated, at the end of your rope, time to realign! Prepare for stable background work that will hold the promise of your future.

Gemini, the next sign, is the Sun’s sign this Full Moon, and Mercury is Gemini’s planet, so this Mercurial transition is important. Mercury is semisextile the wild card Uranus, then sextile Chiron. Mercury and Uranus both have to do with communications. Mercury is your personal thinking. Uranus is collective thinking – humanity, the Internet! Uranus is now in Taurus, so we think of Gaia, the environment of our bodies and Souls. It helps to keep us grounded as evolution is speeded up. Chiron offers opportunities to access healing informations, teaching options, business connections, meeting fast thinkers like himself! Stand up with both eyes open! As one teacher said, Where your focus goesyour energy flows. Another way of thinking of this is Mind over Matter!

TWO Fixed Stars are on the Full Moon axis! One person summarizes, ‘The eastern royal star Aldebaran, the star of illumination, is directly across the zodiac from Antares, the star of anger, pride and revenge. This is the only exact opposition of two major stars!’ They are also two of the four Archangel stars, the four Royal Stars of Persia, the Four Guardians of Heaven. Ferocity required! In about 4 hours the Moon will be opposite Aldebaran at 9 Gemini 47 and in less than 2 days, the Sun will conjunct Aldebaran, the most famous of the four Archangel stars, represents St Michael! Aldebaran is God’s military commander and opposite his nemesis Antares at 9 Sagittarius 46! Antares is the Watcher of the West, guardian of the doors to the underworld at the heart of the Scorpion constellation. Shiver.

Robson says Aldebaran, in the constellation Taurus, gives honor, intelligence, eloquence, steadfastness, integrity, popularity, courage, ferocity, a tendency to sedition, a responsible position, public honors and gain of power and wealth through others, but its benefits seldom prove lasting and there is also danger of violence and sickness. Researcher Ebertin says Catastrophe by weather conditions, floods, shipwrecks. Acknowledged and leading position, but will make enemies through whom danger will threaten. Extraordinary energy. Bernadette Brady says you will face moral dilemmas that challenge your integrity. Avoid temptation to compromise.

Antares is said to make people tough, belligerent and pugnacious. This is an important star for military personnel and is said to convey mental alertness, strategic ability and courage and to make dare-devils, especially if tied up with the MC, Ascendant, Sun or Jupiter. According to tradition, Antares is of violent character and is credited with being significant for a violent death, either in battle or by process of law. On the other hand, danger may come about by fire, weapons or machinery. Antares is also said to be unfortunate for the eyes, if in conjunction with the Ascendant, Moon or Sun and this has proven to be the case by later researchers. Clearly, this is a ‘be careful’ star.

IN THE BACKGROUND! Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic! 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.

Blessed be, you and the Buddha. May your MoonLight be flowerful!

NEW MOON – Two T Squares, Uranus and Chiron!

Wednesday June 13 at 12:43 PM Pacific, 22 Gemini 44

Gemini New Moon A Dark Sky studded with Stars Dark Purple Roses and Dewdrops

A dark New Moon sky studded with stars is similar to these dark purple Roses with galaxies of dewdrops.

This will make the last of 6 lunar events in a row that we have had planets at 29 degrees, the last degree of their signs. Both in Aries it was Chiron at 29 degrees Pisces. In Taurus it was Uranus at 29 Aries, then Mars 29 Capricorn. The May 29 Gemini Full Moon it was Mercury at 29 Taurus, and now it’s Venus at 29 Cancer! Finishings it has been, on the brink of new beginnings. In order, Chiron, Uranus, Mars, Mercury, Venus.

Venus at 29 Cancer sums up Mother’s love, our role as a child. She started out as but a baby girl herself. Her own Mother did as best she could. Maybe she was unable and let others do what they could. Maybe she came from a long line of dedicated capable loving Mothers who passed on that heritage and that baby girl became a wonderful Mother too. Zodiacally our charts may be easy with our Mums, partially or wholly challenging, or we were just born to do destiny on our own, Mum supplying the birth. Venus in Cancer can give a child a profound love and admiration for our Mum, or a knowing that we must love ourselves as we are even if Mum doesn’t. Venus in Cancer can give an abiding love for femininity, women, the Matriarchy, our home and community, culinary prowess, instinctual nurturing, Mother Moon! This is an important primordial placement for self-esteem, for a good quality of life.

Furthermore, Venus links to both T Square points! She squares Uranus, trines Chiron! See more below…

Moon and Sun are at 22 Gemini 44! Love those double numbers! So apropos for Gemini, sign of the Twins! I’m always in awe of this Moon/Sun merger! Bright as Sun is, Moon is there to shelter and nurture! Sun reminds her to take some time for herself and brightens her day! Moon in Gemini is careful with her words, has a lot she has collected to say. Mercury is in Moon’s sign Cancer, as Moon is in Mercury’s sign Gemini, mutual reception. Touching family memories are shared, more images taken for the album. Mercury remembers the dates and details, who was where, when and why, family lineage, making Moon quite happy to have the whole story. Venus in Cancer too, remembers sweet anecdotes of gatherings and who brought that delicious food and recipe! Sun is gallant and heroic with his words. He inspires all with his dramatic experiences and reenactments. The whole combination is heartfelt.

Moon and Sun recently inconjuncted Pluto in Capricorn, but make no close upcoming aspects to any planet. Darker factors of the past may need a warm gathering to heal difficulties that have lingered. And it’s good to get clear that was then, this is now. Don’t let emotional or psychic hangovers tarnish the goodness we have now. We have outgrown many old fears and built a more sturdy mindfulness now. If it isn’t much better now, see to it.

Two T Squares!

A T Square has a baseline of two or more planets opposite each other with another planet or planets equidistantly placed between them at approximately 90 degrees, the midpoint. It’s the very function of equidistance that gives additional potency! The Midpoint factor receives equally, no value difference. So the two powers merge without prejudice – neither submerged nor overshadowed by the other. The Magi astrologers say the midpoint is a fusion or melding together of the baseline planets’ symbolisms. If there is a planet(s) at the midpoint that energy activates the point planet and the point planet radiates to the baseline planets! Potency! Two expert sources are Reinhold Ebertin, German midpoint master – dead on interpretations, and the Magi Society astrologers. Learn more about midpoints at Cafe Astrology.

Any two planet(s) make two midpoints, one on either side of their baseline. There can be a planet there or not. Since they can be on either side of the baseline, there is a completely different sequence of signs. For example, our fixed T Square has Uranus in Taurus at its T point, making the sign sequence Aquarius, Taurus, Leo. If instead the T point planet(s) was in Scorpio, the sign sequence would be Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, a very different tone! And though there happens to be no planet there, that midpoint in Scorpio is still a sensitive point. One of your Scorpio planets might fill that spot.

The midpoint planet(s) can act as sender of the collective energy of the base group. It can act as a probe, the rep of the base group. It can seek fertile territory, as a ‘dowser,’ seek information sources to receive from, channel home to the people, act as a collector. It probably can do both simultaneously. As soon as information is received, it changes the substance of the search! The search instantly has greater capacity, becomes new and scans wider and further! It’s a living process.

In everyday traditional astrology oppositions have their maximum differences, the widest possibilities of reach. Squares break things down, break up, and break through. The mid planet(s), the planet(s) at the T point, interrupt the status quo the two opposite points may have settled at. There can be a surge of energy as we let go! Grabbing new ground makes sense. Jam the wedge in and keep the gates open. Take a good look and see if you want to go there, where you want to go. Get up and ride!

One T is the predominantly fixed T Square spanning the Nodes Aquarius to Leo, Venus at 29 Cancer at the North Node, Mars at the South Node in Aquarius, Uranus in Taurus at the point. Fixed signs are meant to anchor and stabilize important factors in our lives. They often stand true as ones we can depend on when life is chaotic.

Venus makes the link that makes the T Square. She is at 29 Cancer, the powerful last degree of the sign! Cancer is a cardinal sign, all the rest of the factors in the T are in fixed signs Aquarius, Taurus and Leo. Cardinal signs get things started and keep them moving! Fixed signs stabilize the achievement. Venus enters Leo 2 hours after the New Moon; Leo holds the Light forever in his heart! In Leo she makes the exact square to Uranus the day after the New Moon.

Venus in Cancer loves her nest, her family’s culture, tradition, homespun art. She stands for women, children, the young, the feminine. Uranus needs freedom, is avant garde, the Awakener before his time, concerned for humanity at large, planetary matters. His friends and associates, international gatherings are where his attention is. The internet is his tool of choice. In Taurus he’s a little more calm about it, and has some unexpected patience, but change there will be. The homestead, the animals, food sources, clothing – elemental commodities, our bodies. The definition of Beauty will change. We will be attracted for different reasons than before and want different things. As an ally, Venus will lend her Grace, give the personal caring human touch when Uranus doesn’t seem to care. Uranus likely sees how important her presence is, even more than she does, though he may not say so because so much is on his mind. Be good if he would let us know where we stand with each other… He’s so erratic, Venus may find it hard to find a moment to give praise for his works. Take some time for personal exchanges. Things will go better for it.

The North/South Node on the Leo/Aquarius axis is the baseline of the T. They are always retrograde, so they are going back to meet Venus, and they too will be squaring Uranus shortly. Venus will be at the North Node, the node that we are working to strengthen, to balance with the South Node of the past. The south in Aquarius means we worked with powerful groups of people before. The north, supported by Venus’s blessing, in Leo helps us keep our own counsel, regardless what a group wants us to think. We must stay with our heart, be good in our own personal way, put our stamp on it that others may recognize that special Light! Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, is the planet of unique, so there is harmony. Him in Taurus may seem oh, so, slow, to that S Node in Aquarius, but too fast, getting before our time, has prices to pay too. Take it easy, find your rhythm and right timing.

The North Node and Saturn at 6 degrees are separating from an inconjunct. Saturn in his own sign Capricorn is another calming planet that develops self-discipline. The node considered Saturn’s guidance at its neighboring sign to the S node. Saturn wants to use the past with moderation to achieve the work of the heart at the N node.

Mars in Aquarius was just activating the retrograde South Node and is well past the square with Uranus, the planet of Aquarius! Mars has a bold presence that isn’t usually easily dismissed or quickly forgotten! He moves swiftly to take action that makes change that can’t be undone so the initiation of the process is assured. We may have hoped for such a thing to happen for a long time. It may not start as we anticipated, so you gotta be fast on your feet and leave that delete button alone! Give it a chance, wait to see what happens and what might come of it!

The other is a cardinal T Square formed by baseline planets Mercury in Cancer opposite Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. Chiron takes the point in Aries! If we have Uranian change, we need a healer and teacher to let go the past and open us to future potential! Cardinal signs get us started and keep us in motion. Sometimes they have the ideas that we need the fixed signs to anchor and nurture in place. Other times they sweep in, clear the debris of old thinking, give away the old stuff in the garage, make new arrangements, inspire us to work updated ventures!

Mercury in Cancer questions you gently, but reminds you to take responsibility to self-nurture and kindly speak to help others. You know how Cancers are accused of being crabby, or a little shrill. Well that happens to the best of us at times. We sometimes forget how others are so sensitive even if they seem not to be. Mercury can give instructions about caregiving, mothering, how to listen to your parents and understand they have feelings too. If you ask a Mercury in Cancer what they think they will say, I feel… It’s good to have both logic and sensitivity. Mercury in Cancer may do a lot more listening than you would expect, even be a bit shy.

Oh contraire with Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. He wants to get things done in the least time with the least effort at the least expense. He is Father to Cancer the Mother though she may be the one he bows to! Moms are the cosmic authority no amount of credentials apply to! But who pays the rent?! Saturn gathers us up, goes over the project, makes assignments per our individual skills, checks on our work. He makes sure the client is kept in the loop and secures further work, makes follow ups. And pays our wages. He’s a terrific role model for the youngers, and often makes arrangements for our eldears. (My word.)

Chiron gives us the boot! Aries is no sleeping dog! Woof! Walkies?! You bet! More like at a run. He darts back and forth between Cancer and Capricorn! Cancer is at home but needs to get out and about, inspire the kids! Capricorn, a traditionalist, needs to be shown the new ways quickly, showing how they make a better product, working procedures, more profit. Chiron is good at business and Aries is the leader consultant! Chiron is the healer and teaches how to live well. Old wounds are tended lovingly or lovingly impatiently because he knows we can do it. So we get up and go! And, in Aries, we just plumb leave them behind, even forgot them! Relationships sure take a turn for the better as we are able to put more positive energy in the present than in the sadness of past losses! Aries is the hero, our inspiration, activation, the first! We can do it!

There are three factors linking the two Ts! The Ts are working together!!!

  1. Venus links to both T Square points! She squares Uranus, trines Chiron! Square Uranus she pleads with him to spare the innocent. His job is big, to affect vast numbers of people at once, and sometimes there are casualties. He does what he must. But leader to leader, there are considerations in the grand scheme of things. Kindness can make THE difference. She trines Chiron, but out of sign, Cancer to Aries, water to fire! Aries may make a run for it, being allergic to someone asking him to wait. His kind of responsibility is to be there first, help instantly. She may think he should be more kind, follow up, but he’s wise to know himself and have someone else do that follow up part. She herself is about to go into Leo, the next fire sign, and they will be more easy together, though Aries sometimes thinks Venus is just too soft, and in Leo perhaps a bit lazy, spoiled, selfish. Could be true, but ultimately she finds she can give and is a loving teacher with all kinds of heart! Together they can be magnificent! From a Cancer foodie to an athlete!
  2. As Venus comes forward, the Leo North Node, the N Node always retrograde, is going back to trine Chiron. N Nodes are the new territory, compared to the S Node representing what we did so well we did it bad or overdid it. Seeking a better balance, it is scary to leave an old familiar way. We could make a fool of ourselves, be clumsy, a bit awkward. And what Leo ever wanted that?! Humbling, I say, especially since a few days ago the S Node was with Mars in Aquarius, gleefully up to his old tricks with the gang! But it does feel good to be on his own in Leo, just be himself with no expectations or feeling obliged to the group. Do something, do nothing. Deep breath and be happy.
  3. Mercury, in the cardinal T square, just made a sextile with Uranus, the point of the fixed T Square, tying the two T Squares together. Sextiles connect mixed but favorable elements, in this case earth and water. Earth channels let water flow. Uranus is the most long term factor active in this chart. Both planets have to do with mind signs, Gemini, what’s in our head, and Uranus higher mind of collective humanity, genius and evolution, awakening! Mercury has the information, Uranus has the friends to carry it all over the world! Internet.

Saturn is retrograding back to square Chiron, but Chiron retrogrades before Saturn gets there. They do get close and the sniff factor is there, but no consummation. The worst fears make you take notice, but won’t happen, but they do indicate what could. There may be business and relationship difficulties that need attention. Health troubles are possible. Could be delays. Saturn is working hard in his sign, and Chiron has some new solutions. Give them a listen. Things don’t have to get dire to make excellent changes. See what you can do. You’ve been warned.

Jupiter trine Neptune continues…. Jupiter is retrograde, in close aspect until the third and last trine Aug 19. 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. See more, plan ahead, take the chance!

IN THE BACKGROUND! Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic! 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.

Use these powerful T Squares standing up! Uranus is the ChangeMaker, Chiron is the Healer/Teacher. Sounds perfect!

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

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

Sagittarius Long Night Cold Full Moon Goverla Ukraine

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

5 Planet Sagittarius Stellium! Stars Polaris & Betelgeuse!

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

Sagittarius Crescent Moon Kinuko Yamabe Craft

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Full Aries/Libra Harvest Moon!
All 5 Outer Planets Activated! Cardinal & Mutable T Squares!

New Moon! Jupiter now in Scorpio!
Saturn at Galactic Center square Chiron, trine Uranus!

 


Full Aries/Libra Harvest Moon!
All 5 Outer Planets Activated! Cardinal & Mutable T Squares!

Thursday Oct 5, at 11:40 AM Pacific, 12 Aries/Libra 43!

Libra Harvest Moon Celebration Outdoor Dining

Full Moon Party at The Atlantic Hotel & Spa! Guests will feast on a three-course meal from Beauty & the Feast Bar|Kitchen on the 5th Floor Oceanfront Terrace before celebrating the night away! Fort Lauderdale, FL 

Happy Harvest Moon! This year the Full Moon nearest the Autumnal Equinox is in October. It is also called the Hunter’s Moon, Travel or Dying Moon. It is end of summer, beginning of Fall. Leaves are ‘falling,’ days are shortening, it’s getting cooler. Gardeners harvest; Hunters gather and process game for winter stores. Now that harvest is done, we are free to travel.

This year, in social Libra, it is a time to gather with loved ones outdoors, eat sweet moon cakes, admire the harvest moon, and celebrate the abundance of life. The full moon is a symbol of prosperity, wholeness, and reunion. Family and friends—no matter where they are in the world—can gaze upon and enjoy the same beautiful moon. No matter what happens, you have each other! If you are in a fire or storm area, please take some time to give thanks with new friends. To those of you who are hurting, maybe alone for now, we send our love always. Bless you and keep you and yours.

Mercury and Sun are together this Libran Full Moon. Mercury is being very aware and thoughtful of others. Communications are vital when there are disasters or political shakeups. A cool head and a lot of heart can bring people together in unusual circumstances. In spite of discomforts and fear, this is a huge opportunity. Unlikely champions will rise. Prejudicial limitations will seem senseless. We just help each other because we need help. Lifelong friendships will be made across all lines.

The Moon, always opposite the Sun at Full Moons, is in Aries, the sign of forthright action, first responders, leaders. The Moon is unconditional love and support and independently gathers the food and distributes it as needed. We are all Family. This support gives rise to a grateful independence, more assertiveness, fights for rights of our own and in behalf of others, especially for children.

Sun/Mercury and Moon are directly tied with Neptune! Mercury and Sun are inconjunct, askew Neptune. Mercury is logic, Neptune is not. Neptune the Dreamier is more soulful and psychic, impressionistic. Mercury talks, writes lyrics, while Neptune listens or makes music to the words. Sun in Libra brings people, maybe artists, to meet Neptune, but he may be away in the Ashram or not available until late in the night. Neptune may be brightened by the visit but glad when he has his solitude again. Moon in Aries is hard pressed to slow down for these things. She may push too much and lose the game, or the others may catch on and see it’s important not to miss out or delay important progress by not keeping up!

Oppositions have an across-the-table quality. There you are, right before me. We may be different, but we can shake hands, discuss our mutual goals, divvy up the work between us. We may do it differently, but together we can get there! Sun lights the way, Moon supports and reflects the Light to others! Teamwork!

Cardinal T Square! They are bringing the Light to bear on Pluto, a planet of darkness, a holder of secrets and healing! In Capricorn, Pluto is in the Moon’s opposite sign. There is a resonance since Moon rules Mothers and Capricorn is Fathers! The challenge is to raise Pluto’s sights from old ways that used to work, were necessary then, to fresh options and new alliances. Sometimes the Healer needs rescuing! On the other hand, Moon, Sun and Mercury may need to pass through Pluto’s cleansing gateway before they may go on. There is a test for both sides. Will Pluto see the Light? Will the upstarts clear themselves with the Master? Likely there will be a little temporary consternation and perhaps a little chaos, but the Cardinal signs rarely forego a good challenge! They have natural inborn jump starters!

The Mutable T Square starts with Mars and Venus in Virgo opposite Chiron in Pisces, they in turn square Saturn in Sagittarius! This one is more long term since Saturn takes until Nov 2 to square Chiron. The Venus/Mars conjunction is really fresh! It just happened at 9:53 AM Pacific, just a couple hours before the Harvest Moon! There are details to consider, reorganization that pays off. Distribution is needed. Mars does what it takes. Venus goes ahead of him advertising the values of the opportunity! Though working independently for the time being, Mars could use some partners for his project, cause. Chiron may be asleep over there in Pisces, but senses the shift and stirs. Something has happened and as a healer, he is curious what Virgo has started. He prefers herbs and natural remedies when possible.

Saturn, having been in Sagittarius for a while now, is more amenable to learning about healthy remedies that increase longevity. Not only is it important what we learn, but how we learn it, what we do with it and when. Virgos test their ideas, the quality is there as they promise. They are expert at hands on training. Chiron sees the value of the body/mind connection as well of those with the Soul. Saturn thinks this is a working tenet, so engages, giving what time and support he can, lending his name.

Sep 27 Jupiter opposed Uranus! People have been having huge differences of principles, ethics. Politically balances of social constructs have been undergoing dramatic change. Natural disasters have forced people from their homes, families have separated to survive, or from the result of new laws. Fires, floods, earthquakes. Fear has occurred on so many levels. Change, evolution is inevitable, but recently it has been high chaos and tumult! So much at once. Jupiter is the planet of magnitude, Uranus is the masses. No one escapes! I’ve written how Libra is a sign of recovery of balance. While Jupiter is still in Libra until Oct 10, use its ability for all its worth. See where it currently is traversing your personal astrology chart and work it! Together, consciously and well focused, we can get a lot done. So many are stepping up to the plate, ie our super hero this month! JJ Watt, only 28 years old, has raised over $37M Harvey Relief Funds!

Also yet to come is Saturn trine Uranus Nov 11 – 11-11! They are currently 5 degrees apart, but closing. Saturn square Chiron in Pisces comes first Nov 2. First is a possible health challenge, a matter of addictions, old guilt, fears, depression. Depending on how it engages your chart, if it does, you may find yourself on your knees. This is followed by the trine with Uranus, support of friends and community, and the freedom to change. It requires hard work to make the change, but the effort pays off. There may not be fireworks, but a worthy mission will be completed. No shame or blame. This is a life changing passage.

All the outer planets are involved in our Harvest Moon – Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto! This Full Moon is linked with long term factors. AND, ALL the Full Moon inner planets – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars – activate all the outer planets! They all spur the outer planets on, and are themselves changed by the encounters. Not one planet is in a Fixed sign, holding things steady. It’s not the time for it. The Cardinal planets get things moving; the Mutable planets make the accommodations to facilitate flow! It’s a grand integration, truly FULL!x

New Moon! Jupiter now in Scorpio!
Saturn at Galactic Center square Chiron, trine Uranus! 

Thursday October 19, at 12:12 PM Pacific, 26 Libra 35!

Libra New Moon Crescent Sunset

This thin crescent is post Sunset just after a New Moon.

This is the first lunar event of Jupiter newly in Scorpio as of ten, ten, Oct 10th! The context is wholly different now. It’s been 11/12 years, since Oct 2006, and all the outer planets have changed signs! Saturn has been through Leo, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio, now in Sagittarius! Scorpio wants it deep and bonded – for richer or poorer, in sickness and health, ’til death do us part. Lifelong. Jupiter wants vital education for a prosperous future for life to be exceptionally blessed. The stakes are high. When it can, Libra offers the connections needed to enhance the opportunity for it to happen.

Libra is the Sunset time of day. It is the Sign of gathering after the day’s work, sharing what the day brought, planning the next day. It’s a time of equanimity, between day and night, equal at Equinox. We welcome a quieter time of day and year. Days will be shorter and it’s cooler. Some time will be spent in contemplation, creating art that tells our story, makes beauty. We will spend more time indoors together. Rather than scattering for evenings outdoors, we gather indoors for dances, theatre, symphonies, art shows. Being social is natural.

A dark night in Libra can be a most potent meeting of Self and Soul. The Moon relates to her people – forbears and children. The Sun relates to his own heart, his courage, his expression of Light. Together they merge the past with creating a powerful union for the future.

At 26 Libra the New Moon is sextile the Galactic Center, opposite Uranus, the planet of the Heavens! And the New Moon is just past the exact inconjunct with Chiron in Pisces!

The Galactic Center, GC, is a place of huge significance. It ties us with Souls or Beings beyond our wildest imaginings! We may dream or have insights, but more likely impressions that we don’t entirely understand yet feel are important, compelled by, point a direction. We are inclined to be more inclusive, to let go of the daily fraught, raise our sights higher.

Saturn, 23 Sagittarius, is now very near the GC at 26 Sagittarius 59! Saturn will be at the 26th degree Nov 15 to 24. Saturn in Sagittarius calls us to take charge of our future. Work it. Be present, accept the mission. Be respectful of all Paths. It started Feb 16 at 26 Sag 0, moved into 27 degrees and ‘stationed’ there – was direct/moving forward, then April 5 retrograded/turned back. It went back to 26/0 degrees May 25, right after the the second Saturn trine Uranus! That was three months that we were deeply infused. Now we see what needs doing, it’s time. Recent floods, fires and quakes have called for survival, generosity and recovery. I won’t say restoration, because it’s time to do better. We want to build a fresh future. Let go, move forward clean and clear.

Again, Saturn will trine Uranus, only 3 degrees apart now, exact eleven eleven, Nov 11! This is the third and last time. As before, Dec 24, 2016 and May 18, 2017, Saturn collects the scatterings of ideas of Uranus in Aries, unites them in purpose! Responsible networks are formed, some with unique specialties. These networks may be bulwarks to stay tides of falling back in time, yet see values in new ideas and put them to work. New careers of deeper meaning will be created and forged. See more!

This aspect is important because Uranus is 26 Aries 31, directly opposite the New Moon and trine the Galactic Center! There is no chance things will stay the same! You might be scared or so excited you can hardly contain yourself, both! Evolution is! Aries is the leader, champion. Uranus and Aries can be solo, or they can be a tribe of leaders, community leaders worldwide making amazing strides! Libra has more propriety, but is also a sign of leadership, making connection after connection to strengthen the light grid of Humanity! Can’t be done without them. Infusion from the great center of the Galaxy will be potently activating many Souls at this New Moon!

All this will be considered under the auspice of Moon and Sun having inconjunted Chiron in Pisces. Healing insightfully, mindfully, with appropriate timing, with no condescension, is sometimes a delicate achievement. Making your patient, client, student a ‘partner’ in their own healing creates a powerful union.

This aspect helps prepare us for the Nov 2 Saturn square Chiron the third time. That is generally not an easy aspect. It may disrupt your business or your love life. It may remind us of old sorrows, addictions, grief for lost loved ones. Our health could suffer. The change we hope for may seem lost or circumstances insurmountable. Chiron is in Pisces with a wicked imagination! Thank goodness Saturn is realistic and practical. In Sagittarius he is so looking out for a more positive future and actively working for it! Day by day, step by step. Do what you can, you get points for just being able to wait this one out! More better though, if you take measures, no matter how small. You can do it! You can. See more!

Mercury just conjuncted Jupiter in Scorpio for the first time in 11/12 years! What an intense consult! There may have been some awkward moments as we get used to this new energy. Mercury is clever with words, but it’s still a new language. Mercury is rarely overwhelmed, but this time he may have reach for it! Jupiter offers as much as you can take, and Scorpio is famous for extremes!

As with Chiron, Scorpio calls for healing. Jupiter heals and updates our purpose. Mercury heals our mind and communications, thinking and learning skills. What you say, how you say it makes a difference. Jupiter wants the whole Truth. Scorpio may protect what must be protected, but also release important revelations. Mercury’s choice is whether to keep the secret and find a way to bring information to help without letting others know their source or the full story. Or, it may be time to do the journaling and exposé, clean up the mess. Could be a little dangerous. Watch out for compulsions and obsessive mind sets. No verbal abuse – none given, none accepted. No being mean or scornful and self righteously thinking it’s ok because you are ‘right.’ Stay clean. Jupiter has a lot of hope, no matter how ‘dark’ the times may seem. Often things you don’t know about are at work in your behalf. Wait for it. Scorpio is the sign of rising from the dead, the Phoenix from its own ashes! That’s a tough combo to beat. Mercury is good at slipping through the cracks out of harm’s way! Stay with it and don’t give up!

That should be doable with Venus in her own sign Libra watching carefully and treading lightly. She is neighborly semisextile to Mercury. Keep the dance moving, adjust your center as you move. Remember that balance is a living medium, rarely equal or symmetrical. Grace may be more the word. Beauty marks the passage. Kindness shows the way.

Upcoming Saturn aspects make this an important New Moon, as well as this Moon being the first Lunar event in Jupiter in Scorpio! Relationships we make, and how we relate, are critical to our success. Jupiter enjoys Libra – studies, travel, fun! Scorpio is Libra’s astrological neighbor leading the way. Libra supports. In old astrology, Saturn was considered to be exalted, in its best placement in Libra. Libra rules Lawyers, Saturn is the Law! Jupiter is judges! Law is not just what is on the books, but what is in our hearts and the laws of how we treat each other. How we judge, looking for the best in others, keeps us all working for a positive future.

“In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.” ~ Rumi
