Virgo 2019-20 Celestial HighLights

Virgo, Smart with a Heart! 

Virgo HERO Philanthropist Hansjörg Wyss

October 2018, in an open letter published in the New York Times, 83-year-old Virgo Hansjörg Wyss said a BILLION dollars would be released over the next ten years to fund efforts aimed at creating protected areas for wildlife and improving management of existing ones. The goal of the foundation is to keep about 30% of the earth in its natural state until 2030!

Some of our most brilliant humans are Virgos. Virgo, being a health oriented sign, it’s no surprise that in 1977, Wyss founded and became president of Synthes USA, the U.S. division of Switzerland-based Synthes medical device manufacturer making internal screws and plates for broken bones. We see from his chart that he loves that work, Venus in Virgo is retrograding back to opposite Saturn, bones and metal, the mechanics of building. That Saturn is in Pisces, the sign of compassion for things broken. In addition, Hansjörg has Neptune, the Pisces planet, in Virgo, wanting to give compassionate care.

Hansjörg did that work for 30 years. He made a lot of money. Jupiter in Scorpio is lucky with big money and so is Sun sextile Pluto! As of August 2019, net worth 6.2B. In his NY Times letter he said “This money will support locally led conservation efforts around the world, push for increased global targets for land and ocean protection, seek to raise public awareness about the importance of this effort, and fund scientific studies to identify the best strategies to reach our target.” He’s still working. Virgos are top organizers, researchers, and are not quitters.

Hansjörg’s Venus is also trining Uranus, the inventor, evolutionist, philanthropist. According to Forbes, Wyss is “among the most philanthropic people in the world”. Between 2004 and 2008, Businessweek estimated that Wyss personally donated nearly $277 million. His giving has increased since the sale of Synthes in 2012 and in 2013 he signed The Giving Pledge, agreeing to give away the majority of his fortune. The assets of his charitable foundations equal nearly $2 billion. As of 2017, Wyss and the Wyss Foundation have donated more than $350 million to environmental protection, including conservation of national forests and other public lands in the Western United States. He lives in Wilson, Wyoming, a modern cowboy!

Hansjörg’s Jupiter in Scorpio is relentless for education in behalf of ‘saving lives,’ the life of the planet. He has Mars in Sagittarius, a visionary fighter for long term success! He fights for our future! Sagittarius is Jupiter’s sign, so these two are always working together. They are his raison d’etre.

No matter what time of day he was born, his Moon is in Gemini – another Mercury sign, the sign opposite Sagittarius. Gemini will spread the word to anyone who will listen, right at hand, while that Mars is far reaching and wants to get to the point. Hansjörg has a way of delivering his message with care, his feelings and message are seen as genuine. Mother Moon is his ally. She in turn trines, the most successful combination, Mercury, Virgo’s planet! His Mercury is in Libra, the ambassador seeking collaboration and justice.

See more about this man. With his Sun sextile Pluto in Cancer, he’s got our Mother, Mother Earth, in his heart.

Virgo 2019 Celestial Highlights!  

Virgo 2019 Sagittarius Teapot Saturn Jupiter Galactic Center!

.
Chart via AstroBob. As Bob says We live here – can you believe it?’

You can look toward the center of our Milky Way galaxy, aka the Galactic Center! It’s located in the direction of the constellation Sagittarius the Archer, which happens to contain a famous asterism – or noticeable pattern of stars – called the Teapot. In 2019, the Teapot is found in between two bright planets, Saturn to the east and Jupiter to the west, and it is to the left/west of Scorpio if you know your constellations.

We can’t really see the galactic center. It’s heavily veiled by intervening stars, star clusters and nebulae (vast clouds of gas and dust). The center of our Milky Way looms some 26,000 light-years away. But we can gaze toward this direction in space, and – if your sky is dark enough – it’s a sight to behold! The current astrological position is 27° Sagittarius.

Thank you always to Doug McClure at EarthSky!

Virgo Overview of Year to Come!

Virgo Amazing Quilts of Velda Newman Colossal Beauty

May colossal creation and beauty reign! The amazing quilts of Velda Newman! Stand in awe. 2010 Zinnia: Two years to complete, measures more than 17 1/2 feet wide, over 7 feet tall! Extraordinarily it is hand stitched and hand quilted! Worth every penny of the $70,000 asking price!

Mercury, Virgo’s planet, has completely finished the recent retrograde cycle and starts Virgo’s new year on new ground!

June 16 and 18 Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune were together again, closely and retrograde this time. The first set was at 14 degrees. In June they were at 18 degrees. Jupiter is challenging us to expand our vision in the square, to seek a greater truth. Saturn said I see the part of this that has value, how can we make that happen? They have continued closely in degrees. Jupiter makes his final aspect Sep 21, Saturn Nov 8. After the Sep aspect they part company, but both the Sep and Nov aspects are at 16 degrees!  So it goes 14, 18, 16 degrees. If you have chart factors at 15,16, 17 degrees you will be connected to all three sets!

Nov 8 concludes the six aspects with Neptune, all happening while Jupiter is in its own sign Sagittarius! At that time it will be exactly a year ago, Nov 8, 2018, that Jupiter went into his own sign Sagittarius. These aspects with Neptune, the Dreamer, have opened our senses, making us aware of new dreams and beliefs, how to make them come true! Times have changed!

We are in an impressive sequence of unusual aspects that started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter then Saturn were with Neptune at 18 Pisces. The nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs! April 4, 2020 starts a three time Jupiter conjunct Pluto sequence. As Saturn conjunct Pluto prepped with demolition, Jupiter with Pluto will clean out the remaining nest then regroup and prosper. The Nov 12, 2020 Jupiter conjunct Pluto is at 22 Capricorn, exactly the same degree and sign as the Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto. Jupiter conjunct Pluto follows and is the closest aspect to the 2020 Presidential Elections Nov 3! Important things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Mercury acted as witness to the Ecliptic event and observer, documentarian of what he saw at that time and the results in the year following. Conjunct the Sun, the retrograde Transit of Mercury Eclipse, Mercury will be empowered by solar light, to express himself in the most radiant manner possible! People will listen. Mercury is the information gatherer, messenger. Mercury is strengthened to receive then report on Jupiter at the GALACTIC CENTER! He puts it in perspective, knows the meaning, intention, long term purpose! Mercury is the neighbor you know; Jupiter is, in this case, the galactic traveler, a fascinating impressive stranger!

Pluto was at the Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn 58 Rx. The Transit Mercury Eclipse will be sextile (opportunity) at 18 Scorpio 55 Rx. Mercury will move back to 11 SC 43 Rx when at the Galactic Center. Notice these are all retrograde. Retrograde means you have been there before and you will be again afterwards. It’s a 3 part cycle. Three chances. It’s good to get it right!

By November 8, 2019, all SIX of Jupiter’s and Saturn’s 2019’s outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn sextile Neptune is a peerless appraiser, even ‘sees’ what is not visible! If he’s behind you, he is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget sleeping in, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it! Those SIX aspects finish just before the Nov 11, eleven, eleven, Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse and its sister aspect Nov 19 Jupiter at the Galactic Center. Our Neptune imagination is being primed, tested, found strong and receptive!

These profound events will be during Sun in Scorpio, Mercury retrograde in Scorpio. The transmissions are taken in deeply, churned like good butter. Since Mercury is mind, Jupiter meaning, we may not witness physical change, especially with such an aspect as exotic and from so far away as the Galactic Center, but our Soul doesn’t miss a trick! Changes will seem to unfold for no reason and one day we realize there has become a difference.

Virgo will be delighted with the Dec 2 entry of Jupiter into Earth sign Capricorn. Mercury, Virgo’s planet, likes facts and figures and a cool logical research backed Capricorn scenario! Virgo likes excellence of production, no wasted time, that Capricorn is good at. Sharing awards is an honor and pleasure! With Jupiter’s entry into Capricorn there will be 3 outer planets in Capricorn until Saturn enters Aquarius March 31, 2020! Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn July 1, 2020, and again, there will be 3 in Capricorn until Saturn makes his final shift into Aquarius Dec 16, 2020. Saturn will be in his own, more conservative sign Capricorn for the presidential elections. Jupiter and Saturn are both high mountain lovers, so looks like it’s going to be fun for some! Jupiter will make the travel plans; Cap will build the lodge! Jupiter quickly sees potential, offers encouragement, gathers the backers. Capricorn is ace at putting the right pieces together with terrific timing. Successful champions! The job comes in early, and the results are impressive! See more about Jupiter in Capricorn!

And that brings us to Jan 12, 2020, Saturn conjunct Pluto and Mar 21, The Crown! 

We are building to the 2020 Super Stellium! 3 outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto will all be in Capricorn! New Year Day opens with 5 planets in Capricorn! Mercury conjunct Jupiter, Jupiter conjunct Sun plus Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn! Jan 12 Saturn makes the on average 34 year exact conjunction with Pluto.

The CROWN! March 21 2020 When Saturn is about to leave Capricorn, the three outer planets, along with activator Mars, are in culmination, as close as they will get, all four in a 7 degree Stellium! Pluto will be at 23° when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! Peter Novak has studied outer planet stelliums and found that in the last 2000 years, allowing a 5 degree range, there were only 23 three outer planet stelliums! Yes, if he had allowed 7 degrees, there would be more, but still, they are uncommon. See all about it

There are extremes of prediction for the January, March 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean.

April 4, 2020 starts a three time Jupiter conjunct Pluto sequence. Whatever demons or glory, tragedies or triumphs formidable Saturn with Pluto shall have faced, Jupiter will optimistically pick up the pieces, repurpose, or create worse! Jupiter can make bigger bad. If it isn’t worse, Pluto will see the promise of profit financially and spiritually. It will be an explosion of clearing for future works, secrets discovered, major funding attained, ‘keepsakes’ will be in the plans to be built ~ like a mini renaissance, yet more secrets will be made too. Bad will be healed, the rest is hallelujah! LOTS of big news! Super power plays will abound as the Nov 3 Presidential Election approaches.

April 4 and June 29 Jupiter conjuncts Pluto the first and second times. From the second week in March through July, most potently April 4 through June 29, Jupiter closely conjuncts Pluto the entire time! The opposite prediction polarity, compared to the paragraph above, is it can be mass tragedy, even evil personified. More powerful secrets made, concealment and lies to cover. Be ready to help, protect yourself and others until this period passes. Seriously start making alliances with capable and trusted family, friends and associates now. Keep your emergency kit and supplies up to date for on-the-ground environmental conditions likely in your area, have a plan in mind. The aspects will hold be potent at 21 to 26 Capricorn. If you have factors at or very close to those degrees you may be called into action. Challenges for Aries, Libra and Cancer, Gemini and Leo. More easy for Taurus and Virgo, Scorpio and Pisces.

The third and final Jupiter conjunct Pluto is Nov 12, at 22 Capricorn, the same degree and sign as the Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto! This aspect is the last major aspect link of the whole set that started Oct 30, 2018! It carries the experience of the previous two Jupiter/Pluto aspects, is the upcoming aspect when the Presidential Elections are held Nov 3 2020. Again, some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune are all in their own signs up to Dec 2, 2019! See Jupiter in Sagittarius That’s a lot of pure strong energy. Jupiter and Neptune are in malleable signs, in astrological terms, mutable. They are flexible, adaptable. Jupiter goes into Capricorn Dec 2. Instead of 3 planets in their own signs, we now have 3 outer planets in ONE sign, Capricorn – Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto! Jupiter in Sagittarius traveled, played, had us consider our principles, educational choices. Saturn in Capricorn stomps his foot and calls for responsibility and to abide by the rules and laws, honor each other, your parents, the boss, elders and ancestors! You have to show him how and why that change you request makes sense. Neptune in Pisces senses our weak spots, and with compassion, converts them to strengths. We become aware of our Soul’s purpose. Saturn is a good balance to those other two wayward wanderers Jupiter and Neptune, enamored in a moment, sometimes for no good reason. They are enjoying the show while he wants to know what’s real, what is doable.

1940/41, 1983, and very briefly in 1998, 3 outer planets were potently together in different signs. But this time it will be 50 years before three outer planets will be in a same sign again, and it will be potent right from the start! Jupiter conjuncts Pluto and Chiron at 2 and 3 degrees ARIES, March 13, 2070! With stelliums, like these, the planets bring their different talents together, have like mind, and are in Unity of Purpose per the sign they are in!

Two outer planets change sign during Virgo’s coming year. Jupiter in Sagittarius enters Capricorn Dec 2. Saturn in Capricorn enters Aquarius Mar 21, 2020, retrogrades back into Capricorn for a review July 1. Jupiter’s sign is where the good fortune is! Be ready to shift certain investments, adjust projects to new, additional goals. Saturn, quite at home in his own sign, suddenly finds himself on unstable footage in a sign quite unlike himself. Yet, Aquarius carries on the good work for all the world and Saturn has more business than ever! Saturn guiding will make it all the more potent. While Capricorn loves the status and money, be guided by keeping your work in service to all. With earth changes, we will find ourselves working with many others in diverse environments under unusual conditions. Aquarius will expand your business, mission, if you let the change work for you. Blessed be.

Chiron in Aries & Uranus in Taurus continue humming along in their semisextile. They are will be completing their 13 years long journey together in 2021. For now they are closely together in the background…a small but potent aspect. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. In Virgo’s coming year they are exact twice in their signs Aries/Taurus at Valentine’s time, Feb 15, and June 10, 2020! See more about Chiron/Uranus

Outer Planet Transits with Virgo 2019 – August 2020!

Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter

Virgo Chinese Dongyang Wood Carving

.
Chinese Dongyang wood carving, sculpting, the epitome of elegance and handmade beauty. Contemporary Virgo lives may be full of creative fascinations! Consummate artists of Intricacy – wood cabinets, intricate boxes, hobby horses, shelving, carving. Stunning art weaving, quilts, puzzles and pieces and tiles. Renowned jewelries. Designer clothing! Their gifts to us are beyond measure! May your everyday life be filled with incredible 3 Dimensional beauty… Be the curator?

Outer planets are the long term movers. Pluto and Neptune move only 3 degrees a year. Uranus orbits at 84 years, and Chiron at 51 years. They are advancing about 4 degrees a year for now. Saturn takes 28/29 years to make its orbit, Jupiter only 12 years, a sign a year! Depending on astrological patterns, some ‘events’ in our lives take many years, where others may happen toot sweet, right on or very near the date the event is exact! Some ‘events’ are not physical, but in our minds or Spirits. No one might ‘see’ them but you. Complex planetary patterns may overlap each other or be singular and direct. Some repeat; others are once in a lifetime. Some people have aspects others never have. Others have had aspects you won’t have until much later. Your astrologer can help you with your personal timing, understanding and strategies.

  1. Uranus, Pluto, and while in Capricorn, Saturn and Jupiter will be favorable to Virgo.
  2. Neptune is opposite, either exclusive or inclusive. Differences may be too much or there is natural collaboration and sharing.
  3. Saturn in Aquarius and Chiron in Aries will Yod Virgo, requiring adjustments. Jupiter in Sagittarius squares Virgo making a T point with Virgo and Neptune in Virgo’s opposite, Pisces. There will be adjustments in beliefs, dissolutions, breakthroughs and possible up leveling to higher ground.

PLUTO is still in Capricorn but is changed. Oct 30, 2018 it made the rare 248 year aspect, Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic and is now below the Ecliptic! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path around earth! Pluto’s debris was lighted, declared to be outmoded, cleared away. He was not only cleared, but became free to be charged with energy beyond imagination! His healing powers have increased exponentially! He gave that very energy to Sun and the Light itself is now more clear and radiant! So fresh, this is a powerful time for all of us, but especially Capricorns because this HAPPENED IN THEIR SIGN! Those of you with chart factors at or very close to 18 degrees, especially in Scorpio or Capricorn, have also been cleared and infused! Some will go to the Light, others might need some time out to be able to stand up again. None of these factors, Capricorn, Scorpio nor Pluto are light weights. It takes a lot to impress them, and they can withstand high intensity, but this tested even them.

Pluto is moving from 20 to 25 Capricorn during Virgo’s year to come. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn is in itself a harmonious sextile aspect, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 23 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, mighty healing and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Virgo the Virgin and Pluto the Tantric Master may share extraordinary experiences of the ecstatic kind! At the workplace they are likely to be all business, and in time discover they like each other more than coworkers! Virgo and Pluto are definitely concerned with monies. Virgo wants value, efficient organization and regulation. Pluto opts for seeking further funding. Capricorn wants the job to come in on time. Virgo can be excellent with human resources, putting the right people at the right jobs. Virgo and Pluto both want clean working conditions and are both healers. Virgo goes for remedies, while Pluto is the shamanic therapist. They both clean up messes, physical, emotional and mental and spiritual. Capricorn knows healthy people are more productive. Well working long term professional alliances are possible. Virgos will be more potent this year. If you are blessed by their advice about your health, listen!

NEPTUNE is in his own sign Pisces. He is a water planet in the last water sign, the last sign of the zodiac, seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors 15 to 20 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Neptune and Virgo are of opposite deportment. Pisces has no particular boundaries, no wave in the ocean the same, mists and molecules in random unpredictable inexplicable distribution. Virgo works the accountant’s books, every number in its own right square box per the formula. Yet, Neptune can intuit Virgo’s next move, and Virgo can assess Neptune’s impact. Each is uncanny in its awareness and accuracy but for completely different reasons and means. Neptune is so haunting or connected that Virgo writes the music, note by precious note, so to share this beauty with others. Virgo is the epitome of documentaries and arranging the order of documents! Neptune in Pisces lends the magic, otherwise it might be a bit dry. But if you put a Virgin to work, how juicy can it be, LOL?!

URANUS, Aquarius’s planet, covers 2 to 10 Taurus! In Taurus it will anchor and build on change worthy ideas that need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network. They need to be cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, so they can effortlessly be carried on. A lot of earth changes we are witnessing are massive, coming suddenly, hot and heavy. The very land is changing, affecting food supplies, water sources and location choices about where to live. There is a lot of instability financially. We need to have backup funds, supplies, stay flexible. See more about the Aries to Taurus sign change.

Taurus invents simple. To freedom lover Uranus, being in Taurus may feel too slow, too close for comfort, so unexciting. Taurus may freak out, and they rarely do, at the sudden upsets to his routines. Or Uranus being in his sign may be the most fun he’s had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Uranus himself is shocked to find walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! It’s a whole new dimension compared to that desk chair in the still dead-air plastics scented office! Taurus may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away at all. But somehow it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Supercharged divine body electric!

Virgo has thought many of these changes have long been needed, likes a great reorg! The latest technology, faster more accurate results. New friends with more expertise that go for the most exciting results ever! These are challenges that Virgo can get behind! That doesn’t mean it will all be easy. At first everything is an annoying mess and things take longer. A tight reign must be held, priorities managed, people checked on and kept in check! Days could be long and tiring. Must watch your health. Get rest, eat well and keep some regular basics in place. There will be some losses as old friends fade away, but relief as tedious connections are released as well. Not a lot of time for romance, and it may not stick anyway though it could be great with a sensible friend! Great goals, working together, but those Uranian characters often move on to the next place that needs some adjustments. You might go with them and you might not. Virgo is an adaptable sign, but not like Uranus. Taurus may do a little grounding, but the itch to be on the cutting edge for humanity is always there and that often means not staying home. Virgo might end up arranging the itinerary, and that may be just fine for both.

CHIRON will be in Aries through 2027. In Virgo’s year, he will cover 1 to 9 Aries, activating any factors you have in those degrees. Chiron has been and will be traveling very closely to the same degrees as Uranus, the Aquarian planet, but in different signs! This has been going on since 2008 and continues through 2021, 13 years. Chiron has become more future minded and Uranus has taken on some shamanistic qualities. There is a subtle camaraderie with Aquarius. See more In Aries, is the first of the zodiacal signs, Chiron is becoming a more fiery shaman, takes unprecedented healing action! Uranus’s sign change into Taurus is, grounding the thunder maker. There is a shift in the foundation, now starting to hold steady.

If you have Chiron in these degrees, you will be having your 51+/- year Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed, your teaching skills improved. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about the head, brain and eyes. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too! In Aries, may start his own business and, loving independence, may be reluctant to marry…

Chiron in Aries may come in good will; Virgo has mixed feelings. Like with Uranus there is the upgrade factor, new systems that work better.  Chiron is feeling his oats. Due to his mythical unhealable injuries, he has often held the back seat, and now, in Aries, it’s his turn to stand up! Chiron is trying on some new healing ingredients and techniques. Virgo is forever the caregiver, nurse, dietitian, looking for the best cures, techniques, foods for improved health. Virgo cares for all, from babes to elders. Aries loves the babies, so things might get tilted that way for a while. Virgo is ever careful and wants to see it work before making new recommendations. Chiron is hot and ready, maybe a little too fast for Virgo’s favor, but she does pay attention to the new ideas and business skills offered, especially if they are more efficient. Your income could improve. Chiron is quick in Aries, a great consultant, but he’s on his own timetable, not ours, so document the info he gives right away. He will soon be gone. Virgo will be glad for the more relaxed pace and miss him too. The best he offered does work. While he’s here, Chiron can do a successful startup so quickly you can hardly believe it! If he remains in leadership, it may be just challenging enough for him to opt to stay, opening branches, a franchise – always something new! Don’t be surprised if he opens further and different types of businesses as time goes on! Be cautious of marriage offers. Aries loves a romantic challenge, but may suddenly lose interest when he thinks you have been conquered and he might lose his independence. Oops. If you are looking for long term, Chiron may not be the one while in Aries. Aries may promise, but not be able to do it.

SATURN builds from 13 Capricorn to 1 Aquarius!

Saturn is working the mid to last half of his own sign Capricorn! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. Many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better, or you start your own business!

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! The experience you have depends on how Saturn is situated in your chart and how other current planetary positions apply to your chart or don’t. Check with your astrologer. Those of you with Saturn 13 – 29 Capricorn have your Saturn Returns now through Mar 21, 2020! There will be more traditional endeavors.

  1. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself.
  2. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have acquired! It’s a time to honor, be honored!
  3. Around age 87, many are now experiencing their 3rd Saturn Return! Things don’t bother them as much. They enjoy what they want to, sometimes something they always wanted to do! They say what they think. There are losses of friends and loved ones. Health matters more – they are often quite brave. Family can mean a lot or if alone, friends do. or just being quietly alone is peaceful. Age can mean honors, even just for making it that long! Capricorn is the sign of time, elder hood. This is generally a strong time for them.

Saturn in his own sign, Earth sign Capricorn, is a force! Young people conduct themselves seriously and old people are more healthy, younger than others their age, strong and cheerful! Saturn adds to the desire to do good work. Saturn recognizes natural law, so its works stand the test of time. Timing is one of its fortes. Steady production, the right people in the right places at the time, being on time, are all assets. They are not only architects, builders and realtors, but understand science and structures – concrete, stones, glass. They can build roads and railways, bridges, homes, skyscrapers! They can do demolition as well as renovation! Saturn is expert at sustainability and conservation – more done with less effort, use less materials, smaller and stronger, for less cost, build tiny homes communities for homeless and seniors, contribute huge land grants to establish legendary preserves. As seniors they don’t quit. They become mentors, and with experience on their side, use new ideas of the times to start the latest businesses! They may be late starters sometimes, but often their later years are truly golden – art awards, health successes, the happiness of long marriages and plenty of grandkids! See more!

Virgo is quite in favor of Capricorn expectations. They are glad for Capricorn’s appreciation of their hard work, and respect the function of being on time, working overtime when needed. Capricorn helps them develop more streamlined skills, be more aware of priorities, be able to compromise some details for the deadline and still have a great product. Delegating is not an easy job for Virgo, yet Capricorn shows them how it is a skill to let another learn, how to choose what things others can do for them when time is short. Capricorn rules elders that can be very productive due to the accume of their life experience. Cap will want Virgo to help them have better health and stay strong in these later years, feel worthy and appreciated. Cap expects obedience at times. But if things are not ‘proper,’ a seemingly meek Virgo can dig those heels in and give you the reasons why. And they are usually right. Both these signs like order, and can work seamlessly shoulder to shoulder. Great partners, both for business and marriage! As Earth signs, neither minds getting a little dirty if need be.

Aquarian Saturn Returns start March 20 to July 1, 2020 at 0 and 1 Aquarius! Later, the rest of Aquarian Saturn Returns will continue through March 7, 2023. Saturn/Capricorn are of the sign just before Aquarius. Saturn can set the mark. If the goal is amazing enough, all-encompassing enough to challenge Aquarius’s talents, AQ will be on board! He will make computer diagrams, research materials, legends, why it can work now, for years, even centuries, it has not been possible before. Aquarians are delighted to learn new techniques and learn so quickly, you lose little time while they do. In fact, your results may become 10-fold in a lot less time than usual! If you are working on challenging new sustainable options, Aquarius will love this new humanitarian effort. Being on the same page, whatever it is for the two of you, makes for a healthy Spirit and union. Many amazing like minded friendships may come, or if you are overwhelmed or need time to recenter, you may take time away and enjoy being on your own. If you are in business or want to spread the word about a project, your networking can go worldwide through social media! Concentrate on humanitarian and sustainability facets of your ventures and investments.

The Aquarian part of Saturn in Aquarius is much like the Uranus/Virgo combination. Virgos are always looking for a better more productive way. We are blessed by their keen alertness in this regard. Though Virgos are generally quite organized, they don’t mind a temporary shakeup for technology that will do a good job, keep quality, increase returns. Saturn may at first find it a bit of a challenge to manage the first months in Aquarius because they are so unlike. Saturn wants structure and Aquarius is the rampant researcher, freedom lover evolutionist! Virgo may argue to let him explore for a time, and may be a bit frustrated when Saturn argues with himself about how useful those explorations could be. He could be on top of a gold mine, or left hanging in the breeze. Saturn himself might not seem as trustworthy in Aquarius. Aquarius has always been the unpredictable Spirit and Saturn is usually like clockwork. Virgo certainly cannot count on him now like when he was in his own sign Capricorn. What routine?! Regardless, stones will be turned, some with startling results. Virgo could write some fascinating documentaries about these new developments! Romance will likely wait.

JUPITER moves from 14 Sagittarius to 27 Capricorn

Jupiter stays in Sag, his own sign, until moving into Capricorn Dec 2. Jupiter/Sagittarius never fail to impress. He can be a hero, and there are plenty of those at this time. It can be a knowledge or wisdom of an exalted teacher and that might be your local high school teacher. It can be a journey of great beauty or a maximum athletic achievement. A boundless love, a loving kindness, a gift, sharing. All these touch our hearts and make a story to remember. Fortunes gained and lost, wagers won and lost, starting from nothing to making it to the top of the mountain! And if it’s bad, it can be really bad. No thieving or robbing. While traveling and your money is low, no taking something because you need it ‘more than they do.’ Big stories yes, cons no. No ‘accidental’ slander, bearing false witness, prejudice. Stay with respectful truth and honesty. Keep the long term in mind. Keep your higher ethics in place, morality intact; visit the sacred place when you need to. Keep learning in every direction.

Jupiter in Sag with Virgo is a wee challenge, or should I say a big challenge?! Jupiter is big and fiery, takes over when he rolls through. He’s not in the least concerned about the small daily matters and is looking for faith, not numbers! Of themselves, the Virgo numbers might be true enough, but Jupiter is looking at what they mean in the big scheme of things. How important are they really? And, of course, to some, at certain times, those numbers are everything. Virgo is pushed to look at when to apply them and when not to. Oh, heck, or maybe Virgo would just like to run away with this stranger for a while. Sometimes you just need to let the work go and get some really fresh aire! Will anyone miss you? Yes, sometimes. Other times they just hire another human who may do the job better than you did. And that’s ok; it can be a relief to know that. You may have a greater purpose than you realized. Jupiter may have some plans that he desperately needs your expertise for, something so important it changes your life. You may find yourself organizing a school that teaches people about health and well being of Spirit. You may look further ahead than you ever realized was possible, and all your life before you were just cautious and careful, being tidy. Now you may not even know where you will wake up the next day if you take on Jupiter’s work. You will not be bored. See more!

Jupiter in Capricorn  Jupiter fairly streaks through Capricorn, getting to the 27th degree, almost completely through Cap, by May 20, 2020! At that point it retrogrades and continues in Capricorn until Dec 2020. It makes work the most fun it ever was! You could be the visitor who is remembered for all the work you did! You might be a random traveler, a business consultant, the foreigner who was on a mission to help the people. Jupiter will help you jazz up your home, give you such good advice you can’t help doing it! They might volunteer and you join them to make some kind of profound difference. Don’t keep your lucky Jupiter charm. They need to travel, check out the territories spread the news. If you hire them, send them to the training seminars furthest away or send them to teach it! If they have too much routine, they will run away. Poof. Gone. Import/exports they are involved with might work well for you too. Their writings may inspire you to start an outstanding business newsletter or monthly report people count on. Jupiter can overdo, so Cappies beware. Know your personal limits and carefully make small trial investments in great sounding whims. Check things out. If you have had doldrums, Jupiter can cheer you up like a champ. You are encouraged because they act like you can do it, and it’s truth! See more 

Jupiter in Capricorn can exaggerate the rules, which Virgo is mostly ok with. Jupiter may also expand the rules – give more leeway, make more rules, be practically religious about enforcing the rules. Virgo definitely has their very own ideas about how the details of new laws should be, who they should be applied to, how they are applied and when. Jupiter is often sure he’s right, and Virgo thinks she’s right. Jupiter may have some ideas that are more all encompassing, and Virgo needs to think that over. She’s been used to things the way they have always been. If workers are treated more justly, paid more fairly, it’s a go. If there is gender, sexual, racial or religious interference, she may be concerned about equal rights – a worker is a worker, has the skills they have. Educational requirements may change. That could mean more skilled workers, or eliminate jobs for people that have done well with no credentials. Perhaps that would spur them on to open their own businesses? Pros and cons of relationships formed at this time will require some thought. Give it plenty of time to prove itself. The tendency will be to overwork during Jupiter in Capricorn. Hopefully it will be something that pleases you and there are very happy rewards!

If you have factors in Sagittarius and/or Capricorn in your chart at these degrees, this could be prime time to visit the positive areas on your AstroLocality map. See your AstroLocality specialist! Not all map lines are positive; some are positive only at certain portions along their length, some are positive appearing but have other hidden factors.

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. The experience you have depends on how Jupiter is situated in your chart and how other current planetary positions apply to your chart or don’t. Check with your astrologer. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and good marriages are possible.

Happy Birthdays, Virgos! May your every step be Blessed with Pure Beauty!


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

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!

Full Strawberry Moon! Building a Better World! 

Wednesday June 27 at 9:53 PM Pacific 6 Capricorn/Cancer 28

Cancer 2018 Full Strawberry Moon

Barefoot early in the dewy garden plucking ripe juicy strawberries…. This is Loupii’s beautiful summery version. Sometimes the moon is tinged red. That occurs in the summer because the moon appears lower on the horizon.

Moon in Capricorn has just passed Capricorn’s planet Saturn, he in his own sign! Out the gate and along the path to the next item/person that needs caring for. Saturn retrograde has revised some of the building plans and Moon is off to find materials and others to complete that additional work. Much better than it was before. Mama has told Father Time her feelings and he has steadied her, assured her she can take it efficiently step by step, that this too will pass. Good lessons will be learned and all in good time applied in a good way. He will be sure she has shelter; she will feed him each day when he is tired and done with his work. They both have concerns for children, family matters, securing their professions, having solid community connections. They will stand together in behalf of elders and women’s and children’s rights.

Opposite Sun! Expand your dimensions! Reach out and shake hands. Sun is in Mama Moon’s sign! He lights her domain, shines long in the summer evenings. Much gets done and the family has comfortable social time at dinner. Sun gives his heart, shares generously, enjoys entertaining, family events are planned, schools and courses are chosen. Moon may be quite tired, even sad or depressed at times, but Sun lifts her up, finds help, lightens her schedule and whisks her away to the family retreat cabin for some well-earned time out! A new cookbook and she’s happily fixing those tasty homemade meals she is famous for! Moon and Sun listen to each other, suggest, discuss, collaborate!

Inconjunct/semi-sextile the Moon’s nodes spanning Aquarius/Leo. Mars in Aquarius is leading the old South Node to a higher expression, possibly out of stagnation or habit though that would be rare for the electrical sign Aquarius! Perhaps Mars is reigniting some old ways to a more pointed focus, implementing old thoughts that had been given up, us thinking they were impossible! Maybe their time has come! The Sun in Cancer the sign before the North Node in Leo, has resonance because the Sun is Leo’s planet! Cancer is careful to encourage without over mothering; the Sun adds light the North Node understands. Warming helps us to relax even when we are a bit scared. Cancer knows about that. Taking chances isn’t always easy, but sometimes the world is a better place for it when we do. Hold my hand. I’ll walk with you.

Sun squared Chiron 4 days ago, the Moon only a few hours ago. They have been considering how to implement new healing techniques. Chiron is fresh in his new sign, and Aries is fresh all by itself! He has a mind to get people excited, try some new remedies, new biz techniques, how to get food on the table soonest! Sun in Cancer, a tad more conservative and protective of the past, might have said ‘I’ll think about it.’ And does, not wanting to miss a possible opportunity, especially if it is a learning program for kids, about homes, kitchen devices, foods, food preparation and nutrition.

Venus in Leo has some other things on her mind. Neptune has whispered to her, something about Spirit being just as important as pride of ownership and beauty. Hmm…ok. Venus in Leo loves her exercise, dances, sweeps the world off its feet! She is dramatic, attractive, a gifted teacher, is super romantic, and blessed with a lot of heart and courage. Neptune gives her insights as she goes. She is more tuned to not just prowess, but that she is a role model that inspires others to try too. Dreams can come true. Ask for more, do more. Give it your best.

Uranus, the planet of higher mind, has recently come into Taurus. It is calmer, more gentle, yet the Earth is changing beneath our feet! Mercury in Cancer more easily relates to this wildcard planet now that it is steadyish in Taurus. Cancer likes its security, but Mercury, another mind planet, is intrigued! Uranus is the planet of change, evolution, and Cancer is the Moon’s sign, always changing through the signs, and forever the scholar of the generations! They have several harmonies though they are technically square, in challenge, with each other. There will be several surprise benefits as any challenges that arise are considered and resolved.

The glorious Jupiter trine Neptune continues…. They are staying in close aspect now through the 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. See more. Plan ahead, take the chance!

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

Honor yourself, honor your parents! Give love with all your heart! We are building a better world together.

New SuperMoon Solar Eclipse Opposite Pluto!
Venus Grand Earth Trine, Transformation & Immortality!

Thursday July 12 at 7:48 PM Pacific and US, 20 Cancer 41

Cancer New Moon 2018 Sunset Crater Volcano

If you are in Europe​, east of the US, this will be your first Friday the 13th solar eclipse since December 13, 1974! The next Friday the 13th solar eclipse won’t be forthcoming until September 13, 2080. This partial ECLIPSE won’t be visible in the US, but very south in Tasmania, Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica, South Pacific and Indian Oceans. But we are in for a treat July 27! It will be the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century (2001 to 2100)!

We are starting the summer eclipse cycle. Some years we have two, others we have three, and this is a three banger!  July 12 is a partial eclipse of the sun. July 27 is a TOTAL eclipse of the Moon. Lucky August 11 is a partial eclipse of the Sun! Plan your nighttime  celebrations!

July 12’s New SuperMoon
 is in her own sign Cancer, with the Sun in Cancer! That’s potent! FEEL IT! If you are coastal, go surfing! If you are Pagan, hold a Women’s Circle! Expect your daily affairs to be a little heightened, and you, your family, people to possibly be more emotional. That will be more true for people who have factors in their astrological charts at 18 to 22 degrees or especially so for Cancers born July 12.


The ECLIPSE is outrageously opposite Pluto at the same degree!
 It’s an old fashioned event. Cancer is her traditional self, home culture, take care of the women and kids, the family. Pluto is in Capricorn, the elder, running conservative businesses, the Past, Guardians, the Law, mentoring. Cancer is the nurturing mother; Capricorn the strict master, ruler of time, age, wisdom. Pluto rules the underworld, big money that changes hands, the secrets we keep, intimacy in the dark, death is the final threshold. We shall be reminded of our mortality. And, Pluto is the detoxer, purger, healer that clears us, does remarkable healings, the Phoenix in us that rises from our own ashes. Yes, we face our demons and rise from our own ashes. Those ashes are the fertilizer of our Souls.

Mercury is YOD! He must keep his head, stay logical and vocal. He must clearly and cleanly name what he sees, no denial, and tell others so they may stay clear minded too. He must mindfully be on the Path, be aware of presences along the way, adjust accordingly. He just left inconjunct Neptune, is coming into inconjunct Pluto. Neptune gives illusion, confuses us with martyrdom or addictions, false saviors. Or Neptune gives 100% clarity of psychic perception and we safely navigate the mire. Pluto is seductive and obsessive – money, sex, power. This enchantment may be what we need to ‘see’ deeper, and, as possible, we need to be able to disengage without harm to anyone.

Mars Retrograde at the Moon’s South Node. Though separating now, Mars is still reminding us to use our Aquarian connections wisely, in the Spirit of times to come. The gift is to use them for evolution, the greatest good with the furthest evolved purpose of mind. That will support the one on one, heart to heart efforts of the North Node in Leo, the sign of Light. If Leo choses to speak or perform, the entire group, 100s, 1000s of people will be awakened at once!

The North Node, always generally retrograde, is moving faster than Saturn. Though Saturn is retrograding away, the NN overtakes him! They will be inconjunct. The NN in Leo has high spirits and cheers Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. Sat/Cap are sometimes gloomy, but other times they are champion workers, determined and dedicated to achieve superb success. Leo can film their epic efforts to show others how divinely Sat/Cap builds our home, renovates historic properties, builds luxury sustainable subdivisions, the Temple, skyscrapers, even a veggie garden! Leo wants elegance as well as functionality and the property is HOT!


Venus will bless Mars
 with her inconjunct and he will stir her Virgo patterns. Since he is retrograding to meet her, they are approaching each other! She has systems he can immediately step into, test and use. He is super intelligent in Aquarius and offers instant ideas to improve the process. He sees the value of her sensible applications and let’s others in the network know about them. She estimates the financial impact of his choices and saves him time by helping him choose the most efficient and productive. Yes.

Saturn will come very close, but, won’t make that trine with Uranus. You will feel it, can sniff it. It will make you think. You will see what needs fixing or doing, the organization or friend you would like. But what you hope for may be simply a blush and a brush with someone fateful. They will go on without you. The organization may be too much for you, you aren’t ready for it yet. It could suddenly splinter apart and dissolve. You will be changed and inspired, see how it could have been done better, and will accomplish more for the encounter.

Saturn also won’t make the square with Chiron. They are both retrograde, but Saturn is slowing to turn forward, and doesn’t catch up. Again, they come quite close, just over a degree apart, but the connection that consummates doesn’t happen. In this case that might be a relief. We might be fearing a business deal won’t come through, it has difficulties being negotiated. Timing and materials, the right person to put in charge aren’t available; the person is not as qualified as needed to be. Things could be too old or take too long, delays. Keep the main idea and people in mind and come back to it later, though it may not ever gel. As we think on it later, we are glad because something better, entirely different, happens.

Venus Grand Earth Trine! Venus has just left a sweet trine with genius Uranus, the planet of the Futurist! Now in Taurus, he wants steady evolution for Earth herself. The planet is changing and we need to stay with it. He has infused Venus with immense ideas. She in Virgo has a gift, the grace to organize and expedite these ideas so they may be applied efficiently. She knows there is an elemental need for freedom to research what can be the best applications for the results needed. She’s a fine analyst, works the percentages, gives advice that has been tested.

Venus acts as go between from Uranus to Saturn the Builder! How perfect he is for the work! They make the exact trine late evening the 13th. She has been watching Saturn’s progress, seeing what works, what doesn’t, so take note of what she likes about what he is doing. He is powerfully in his own sign Capricorn. What he hopes to build has merit. He just won’t do it with Uranus or Chiron for the time being. Sometimes quitting a situation saves time, energy can be put where, for the time being, it is better used. But Venus is bringing the best of the Uranian ideas to him, cloaked with her blessing. She’s a sharp cookie, so he trusts her choices. He has good insight about who the right people are, the materials to use. Using his excellent sense of timing will pay off. Venus admires his style, so he feels the better for his choice. She and he may make a solid bond both personally and in business. He admires her Virgo common sense and intelligence. She understands numbers and percentages. She does the books, guides him succinctly financially. He pays her well and sees that as an investment. If he doesn’t, Venus, tell him to go or you quit him. You are worth it! Time for respect.

The ECLIPSE is exactly at the Fixed Star Castor! Castor is one of the two rival brothers of the constellation Gemini, Castor mortal, Pollux immortal. Robson says ‘Castor, the mortal one of the twins, is famous for his skill in taming and managing horses. Sometimes called Apollo [Sun god], and symbolically named A Ruler yet to Come. Has an interest in the occult. Dr Eric Morse: Castor is also noted in natal astrology for proneness to mental breakdowns and neurotic distress. People with this star prominent and well aspected are exceptionally gifted intellectually. Where these geniuses often need help is in not letting their concern for others go ‘over the top’. And Elsbeth Ebertin…Linked with the Moon or Mercury, it has the effect of such people being blessed with a good nature and fine morals. It is also supposed to convey refined manners. See more by UK astrologer Deborah Houlding. She says it’s all about the ‘quest for divine immortality!’

The juicy Jupiter trine Neptune continues…. Jupiter has turned forward! They are 3 degrees apart and closing, less than a month away from 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. See more. Make this final window of time count! Plan ahead, big! Take the chance!

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

Dark skies open us to unhindered gateways. Eclipses are exact lineups that let us channel directly! Let your dreams ripple, pull up your socks, get to work ~ be there when the miracles happen!

Stunning Full Pink Moon Crested Butte CO by Stan Rose

Full Moon rising over East Fork, Crested Butte, San Juan Mountains, Colorado by Stan Rose

This is the last Moon before Uranus changes signs, from Aries into its first taste of Taurus in 84 years! The sign change first happens just after the New Moon May 15!

This Full Moon has the Moon in Scorpio. Some say the Moon in Scorpio delves deep into past lives, the meaning of life and death, obsessing and purging, mortification and soul retrieval, subsequent healing. It looks into the crevices, or is that crevasses, of the convolutions of our relationships, financial innuendos, secrets. The fire at the base of the spine, the Kundalini, may be ignited! The Phoenix rises. If you weren’t powerful before, you will be now! Not for the faint of heart!

The Sun in Taurus leads out of darkness into the Light, steady and trustworthy, a safe way and place to go. The wings of the newborn butterfly emerge, are spread wide to dry, gather strength after the transition. They are folded and unfolded, flexing for their ascension. This seems especially true with Uranus, the planet of flight, at the super potent last degree of Aries, the sign of ignition! We need that grounding and centering Taurus gives us. We will need to be strong and dependable to stabilize the coming changes.

Saturn, in its own sign Capricorn, is at the same degree as the Full Moon! Saturn wants a reliable structure, a strong boundary, to keep safe within, to protect from without. It sextiles the Moon, lending business opportunities. It trines the Sun, building a timely reputation of personal achievement. Things get done and on time. This combination is not impetuous, can bring about long thought out mergers and marriages, successful parenting.

Saturn is also Yod, at an ‘opposite’ point between Venus and the North Node. Both Venus and the Node are moving toward Saturn’s degree. Venus is in Gemini being glib or glissando! She shares the gossip and valuable data, introduces you to people who have just the information you need, and spreads the word about what an asset you are! The blog needs updating and some attention. The North Node can be a shy point in Leo, but rather than being so concerned what others think, it’s time to express your unique gift, what’s always been in your heart to do! Step into the light! Shake hands, let that Venus breath of beauty, those sweet words, give you the courage. Shake loose, stand tall!

The Full Moon crosses the Moon’s Node axis at right angles, making a fixed Grand Square! Fixed squares are known to have long standing issues hard to change. Taurus is mine; Scorpio is ours, but I will have some on the side, a personal account as well. Aquarius is the ‘past’ South Node. I had many friends and associates and depend on them, perhaps too much. The Leo North Node calls us to ‘be’ ourselves, in full radiant primal glory, to take our personal place in the Sun. This can be the leader of the tribe! The angle signs have their challenges. Taurus likes peace and quiet while Leo has the rock band rattling the windows! Leo wants you to adore them and show you off; Scorpio admires his investment, but prefers his secrets. Scorpio often works privately behind the scenes, while Aquarius is either the free loner never captured, or stirs up the masses into waves of collective change, no holds barred! Aquarius is electrification, the Awakener personified, genius ahead of its time; Taurus likes the comfort and beauty of our Earth, contemplation through saturation. From the Buddha at the roadside shrine to the Captain of the Rocket! Having mutual purpose is the key to putting all these talents together.

Mars conjuncted, was with Pluto in Capricorn the 26th. He quickly poked around in Pluto’s stockpile and dump, looked at his reserves, assessed the assets, offered some suggestions. Pluto warned him when he got too close to the boundaries, but listened to this upstart intruder who dared. Mars knew he could get away, but knew he would chance it. Pluto has traps set, security, but some traps are more of the psyche. That’s a whole nother story. Mars learned some tricks and even more clever ways to use resources, how to build from decay and destruction, release what has been bound. He carries this all forward. Much needed.

Jupiter in Scorpio was sextile Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, mid April, and that episode is still with us. There are clever uses of funds and the power to rebuild. Capricorn is a renowned renovator, and Pluto reuses materials, knows how to expedite and find the best deals to cut costs yet do a right job. Negotiations were thoroughly considered. Matters of great wealth may be at stake. Some relationships were or will be, as fall out, abruptly ended. Other long term relationships will be forged and be lucrative financially, rewarding personally. Jupiter will sextile Pluto the third and last time Sep 12.

Jupiter is retrograde, on it’s way back to trine Neptune in Pisces the second time May 25! They will be in close aspect until the third and last aspect 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 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 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.

Right now, strengthen, work together, build, be mindful.

NEW MOON!

URANUS Sign Change, Double Earth Stelliums! Jupiter trine Neptune!

Tuesday May 15 at 4:48 AM Pacific, 24 Taurus 36

Taurus 2018 New Moon Uranus into Taurus

With 4 planets in Taurus, 3 in Capricorn, that’s 7 in EARTH signs, this is a super grounded practical New Moon. Sit with it. Even Uranus, the planet of space is coming in for a landing!

Notice that 00 Taurus 00 in the New Moon chart below! Today Uranus, the God of the Heavens, the planet of Aquarius, goes into Taurus, the sign of Earth herself, on our Taurus New Moon! It takes this planet 84 years to circle the zodiac, so this New Moon is most uniquely a time of special new beginnings. Yes, it was 1934 when Uranus last started in Taurus, but all the other planets have changed signs and positions since then! 84 years ago this moment was the same but very different.

Since then we have been through WWII – the bomb and the Holocaust, the United Nations. Vietnam, the Kennedy assassination. We put a man on the Moon and explore the stars. Socially we can now talk about sex, money, death, food and health awareness, women’s rights, child molestation and abuse, animal rights, civil rights, gay marriage and guns openly. We got television, computers, the Internet, cell phones, film to digital cameras! And now, planetary climate change. That’s a lot in 84 years. We are not the same.

Uranus, Mercury and the Moon and Sun are all in Taurus emphasizing Uranus’s new sign!! Mercury can feel Uranus right behind him, etheric and electric! These two powerhouses of intellect have a lot to think and talk about. Uranus is considered genius, way ahead of his time, sometimes a little incoherent. Mercury is famous for connecting the dots, can spin and spit out yarns and info as fast as he can make his lips move, even in Taurus! He just talks about Taurus subjects instead of other info! Mercury gets the honors, is the first to greet this great and wild one! What we thought is not and no longer, now off the charts of ordinary conception. Keep your Spirit open and upward seeking!

Mercury in Taurus, the thinker/communicator is key. He just semi sextiled Chiron, newly in Aries, is excited about new remedies, businesses, relationships. Mercury trined Lilith, a harmony of intention to build new long lasting vessels dedicated to uphold divine law, create a working world order. Elders will guide and protect. Next, Mercury will trine Saturn, the one in charge, Father Time. Surrender as well as profound integrity and knowing are intrinsic components to their success. Last in the sequence is the square, challenge to the Moon’s Nodes, spanning Aquarius to Leo. Taurus aims to settle them down. Leo’s finery and Aquarius’s exotic untouchability, can put them off the charts. Taurus waits for their attention, eases them to put those factors to good use, and simplifies the how tos. Quite a chain of events, a complicated network.

The New Moon is last in Taurus. Cows and bulls are meant to take their time pondering. They know how to conserve energy. Others are running around while they are watching, chewing their cuds, working through those 4 part stomachs! They are digesting what they see, casting it in the best situation possible. They see if it stands the test of time, measure its value, get the most gain for the least effort. They often see what others don’t and waste little time in the long run. Tauruses can be gentle, comforting and uplifting. They praise us in truth and it means a lot coming from them. They are remarkably strong in temperament and physically. Business may start small, but it grows and grows through the years. They are loyal mates.

The Moon in Taurus makes a lovely home. Natural surroundings, breezes through the windows, flowers wafting their scents, veggies in the garden. She hugs the children, is herbalist to bruises and illnesses. She’s aware of investment cycles, often doing well financially, gives insightful advice. She may have a cosmetics shop, boutique of comfortable clothes, or a specialty foods, bakery, cheeses, flowers or natural foods market.

Sun in Taurus is a champion! He may be the one behind these businesses! He might specialize in native landscapes, run the nursery, drive the tractor at the farm or do urban digging for power and underground lines. He may have a knack for placing homes in harmony with the land, designing with a sustainable flair. Taurus has a 6th sense for textures, matching people with their best place. He has the strength to be a superb caterer using healthy foods. Or what about that restaurant?! Natural cosmetics. Strength to be a bodybuilder! Or to hold peace at the ashram or sanctuary?

Moon offers Sun her support. She makes him know how much she values him. He is her Light, and makes her know how much he appreciates her. She is the Emerald. The bond is beyond words. Affection. Venus, Taurus’s planet, is one sign away. As we talked about Mercury in Taurus, Venus, Taurus’s planet, is in Gemini, Mercury’s sign. When planets are in each other’s signs this way, it is called Mutual Reception. Each is blessed with a commonality of understanding, strengthened, and can be read in each other’s places in the chart. This New Moon linked with Venus, specifically picks up the entire Mercury network as well even though the degrees don’t connect!

Venus, though in Gemini, being Taurus’s planet, has a natural link to the New Moon. She blesses them with her words. She spreads the good word, supplies valuable feedback from the ‘hood, heals rifts. The Mercury links take that word to other collaborative businesses, women of power, opens gates to new options.

Taurus is the first of the Earth signs, feeds and shelters the tribe. Capricorn is the last Earth sign, attaining the heights! Saturn, Capricorn’s own planet is in Capricorn making his mark, collecting the land use fees and profits turning them back into building for the future – he’s already feeling the plans Jupiter has for the dreams and visions of Neptune! He wants to make them happen. Pluto is now in the last third of Capricorn, researching methods for healing problems of aging, cementing special behind the scenes alliances, securing funding. No sense rebuilding the old. He too is on board with creating what’s new and better, insightful and valuable. Capricorn is the master of long term goals and works hard to get there.

Mars sits at 29 Capricorn, the last degree, feeling the urgency to complete the necessities! At base is organizing so the project can continue effectively. He is a tad reluctant, after all he has worked for, since he senses all hell is going to break loose when he goes into Aquarius, Uranus’s unpredictable sign! Granted, it will not be so careful as Capricorn, but will be crazy creative! Ok, just be as ready as you can be. New techniques will turn the tables and the project will morph into something more advanced. The speed will be exhilarating!

As with the April 29 Full Moon above, Jupiter in Scorpio was sextile Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, mid April, and that episode is still with us. There are clever uses of funds and the power to rebuild. Capricorn is a renowned renovator, and Pluto reuses materials, knows how to expedite and find the best deals to cut costs yet do a right job. Negotiations were thoroughly considered. Matters of great wealth may be at stake. Some relationships were or will be, as fall out, abruptly ended. Other long term relationships will be forged and be lucrative financially, rewarding personally. Jupiter will sextile Pluto the third and last time Sep 12.

Jupiter is retrograde, now on it’s way back to trine Neptune in Pisces the second time May 25! They will be in close aspect until the third and last aspect 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 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 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.

Taurus makes us so aware of our bodies. Take good care of yours, use it with infinite respect.

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

Full Snow Moon, LUNAR ECLIPSE!  LUCKY Grand Fire Trine Sun KITE, Mystic Rectangle, Chiron Yod, Two Midpoints!

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

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

milky-way-over-arecibo-puerto-rico-by-ferdinand-arroyo

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

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

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

Venus in Pisces

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Moon Setting Eclipse Patrick Cullis Indian Peaks Boulder Colorado

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

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

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

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

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

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

LUCKY Grand Fire Trine Sun KITE, Mystic Rectangle!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That said, I wish you great success!

Crescent Moon Woman Feet Up Olbiński
Sweet surrealism by Rafał Olbiński, Polish illustrator, painter, and educator, living in the United States.

Hot pants Mars leaves Scorpio, enters Sagittarius Aug 2 at 10:49 AM Pacific. We’ve got places to go! It finishes the last lap of its retrograde pattern Aug 22, the day the Sun enters Virgo! Much of what has been waded through the past few months, since it started in February, has reached conclusions, some better than hoped for. People will be generous these last 20 days in Sagittarius. Mars is innovative and it is inspiring to see how much you can do yourself! Keep telling the story of your hopes and that moment when the scales tip! Listen for that inevitable support for things you need help with. It may not come in the package you expected, and there may be a go between here and there! With Mars in Sagittarius it may conclude swiftly, so hang onto your hat!

The New Moon is generally thought to be a quietening time, but in fire sign Leo and with Mars, a fire planet, swinging the bat in fire sign Sagittarius?! And just because it is a moonless night doesn’t mean there isn’t a mighty dance going on! This New Moon is in LEO, Father Sun’s sign! He infuses Mother Moon with all the Love he can give! HE IS THE LIGHT! She is so profoundly ‘enlightened!’ She loves him back, and in turn will be distributing that Light to all, especially the children! Leo is one of the teaching signs, a sign of role models. Remember your important impact wherever you are – at the bus stop, the clinic, in front of the City Council! Your bright smile and a hello may save a life. You saw them and respected them with your love. It makes a difference. It’s time to celebrate!

The New Moon makes two close aspects. 1) It has just trined Saturn. Moon and Saturn both have to do with the past, some think Karmic, old matters of Mother/Father. Saturn in Sagittarius reminds us of our intrinsic ethics and responsibilities, our commitments of good faith. Saturn requires our travels to be for more profound reasons, our learning to have purpose and to work hard for our certificates, permits, accomplishments. Leo can be more dramatic than Saturn approves of, but may be the key to getting donations for the cause! A gala! Leo may be late, may be the lazy lion, but when personally motivated, they are unstoppable, sweeping others right along with them, bright inspiration, and it’s fun!

2) Moon and Sun are oblique with Neptune, what we call an inconjunct aspect. Neptune may wither in the glare, and that is noticed. It may not come up in conversation, but a question is posed, what about that? It may be a haunting matter, am I ok, what can I, if I should, do any differently…. Or, Neptune may be immediately on spot, sensing subtle adjustments that make more magic, a support figure you didn’t expect! There may be the reminder not to sell your Soul or disillusioned by too much admiration or drugs that could mar your truest presentation. Some distractions widen our Spirit others are just a bad dream.

The South Node, on a 19 year cycle, is just about to kiss Neptune! Neptune will be a portal to what was a spiritual condition of the past. We may have been a savior or a victim, we may need forgiveness. Current addictions will need addressing. The dragon scales of myths and misconceived judgements will fall away leaving a bare spot, maybe a bit raw at first, a vulnerable feeling. Maybe you need to grab the dragon or maybe you need to be very silent, very still, and just listen.

Jupiter is coming up on the August 12 last opposition Chiron and August 13 last inconjunct Uranus! This is an important set because it will happen in reverse after Jupiter goes into Libra Sep 9. In December, Jupiter will oppose Uranus and inconjunct Chiron the last day of the year! That will be their first encounter in that combination, two more to follow during 2017. What we do now stirs that energy, explores what is needed to make adjustments. Recent events, Orlando, Dallas, bring up the need for a lot more change. The aspect combinations to come starting in December may have more shocking fallout than what has already happened. See more

Mercury in Virgo is making its way to square, challenge Saturn in Sagittarius. Mercury is clever and quick, and Virgo considers how to organize every detail. It can create a smooth working system or something that drudges and falls boringly from its own weight. Let it breathe. Step back, cock your head for a look from a different angle. Saturn in Sag wants to get to the point, and get there on time. Once assessed, the job may be entirely dropped, and rightfully so. Saturn may tell a truth you can’t deny. Or, it may surprise you, corral the pieces and shape things up into a divine working order for very little cost! Might take some contributions of your time, but the project may be most happily salvaged!

Put your feet up. Take a little time to watch the stars, contemplate your place in our mighty Universe. Venus is at 26 Leo, Love & Light! It is making a trine, harmony connection with the Galactic Center at 26 Sagittarius! Venus radiates, sending Bright Blessings! As a receiver, she filters out the shades of gray, anoints with sugar and gold, lets only Love through the Portal. Doesn’t mean Love is always easy, but she does her best to help.x

About the GALACTIC CENTER! It is the center of our great Milky Way Galaxy. Per Paul O Hewit, it is ‘probably the second strongest spot in any astrology chart, following the Sun. It is a stunning source of energy, motivation, and aspiration. The Galactic Center is the Sun of our Sun.’ And, he says ‘Some clients with aspects [planetary connections] to the GC speak of not feeling 100 percent human, or not feeling they have had human ancestry. Their inner dynamic is centered around feeling as if they have come to this planet from some other place.’ Investigative mythologist, William Henry talks about ‘…a race of Stargate time-traveling ascended human beings dwelling at the center of our galaxy, and how each of us can utilize the Stargate through self-improvement. He suggests we are the necessary technology and describes a Stargate technology “kit” that includes a star-crown, mysterious anointing oil and a light-robe called the ‘beaming garment.’ To some of us that sounds like fun! The ultimate trip, time travel and more!

The Galactic Center is considered a point of exchange and huge infusion! The Full Moon August 18 will be at 25 Aquarius 52, almost 26 degrees. The Sun will then be where Venus is now, carrying the Light to that position again! Venus is Love, and Leo, the Sun’s sign, is the sign of the Heart of Light! Take it in, carry it forward.

Walk in Love and Beauty.

Full Grain Moon! Sun-Moon/Uranus Grand Fire Trine/Kite Galactic Center!  Jupiter/Chiron/Uranus!

Thursday August 18, 2:26 AM Pacific at 25 Aquarius 52

Selena Mistress of the night sky, Goddess of the Moon lacquer miniature by superb Russian artist Svetlana Belovodova!
Selena – Mistress of the night sky, the Goddess of the Moon. Sweet miniature lacquer by superb Russian artist Svetlana Belovodova.

Special note: This one is a little confusing. If you are using the Maynard calendars it is listed as a penumbral Lunar Eclipse. But definitions have changed, and per NASA it no longer qualifies. It only grazes the earth’s penumbral shadow and is not visually perceptible.

Celebrating Jupiter Opposite Chiron, Inconjunct Uranus!These Jupiter aspects we just had Aug 12 & 13 are so important because we will be having these planets in reverse aspects starting Dec 2016. Jupiter will be opposite Uranus, freedom matters, and inconjunct Chiron, healing and teaching. Immense changes in store! 2015/16 they were from 18 to 24 degrees but of Virgo, Pisces and Aries. Starting December and during 2017, the aspects will be at 20, 22 and 27 degrees of Libra, Aries and Pisces. Very different tone, some overlapping degrees, some later. See more

Moon and Sun are at 25, just past the Jupiter set that was at 24 degrees, and where Jupiter is now at 25. Mercury is at 23, coming in to reactivate our thinking about recent experiences, reassess, not forget, uplevel another notch. That’s SIX planets in three degrees! Full Moons, Moon opposite Sun, widen our Spirit to maximum capacity! Sun in his own sign LEO is as brilliant as it gets, Light everywhere! Moon in Aquarius is the invitation to expand into extraordinary realms! We can work with others that have great differences and approaches for the same causes! Moon and Sun are in a harmony pattern, called a Bow by some, with Uranus, the planet of Aquarius. Uranus is currently in Aries, the sign of rights fighters, champions, leaders, initiators — new beginnings! May the leaders of leaders join and the battle be well fought and won!

The Full Moon opposition is just leaving, one degree off, from the Jupiter opposition with Chiron. The Full Moon signs precede the Jupiter/Chiron signs. They are considered to give inspiration for the following signs, Virgo/Pisces, to provide a foundation for the work to come. Leo raises the Spirit of the Heart, Jupiter in Virgo seeks the ways to deliver that on a daily basis, to be productive with giving and serving. Moon in Aquarius nurtures bands of friends together in community that those who need it, Chiron in Pisces, will be healed and freed to be blessed by dreams coming true!

Sun/Uranus Grand Fire Trine/Kite pattern with the Galactic Center!
Moon is Midpoint Sextile Uranus and the Galactic Center!

Venus was there first! At the New Moon she trined the Galactic Center! See above Now the Full Moon has moved into position! The Sun is where Venus was, trining the Galactic Center and the Moon is at the Midpoint between The GC and Uranus! She was wearing her tiara, he is wearing his golden crown! Now all those 24/25 degree planets are making a Grand Fire Trine/Kite pattern! That is considered to be lucky and remarkable! Fire can be jubilant; Grand Trines have been know to be lazy, and Leo can be the lazy Lion on the savannah…. When not lazy, Leo can be athletic. How about some summer camping and hiking with friends, somewhere inspiring?! Take your video camera! Try skydiving or hang gliding! Do some creative graphics, write the script yourself! Take on a summer play that shows a better way!

Parallel inconjuncts! [The two purple lines] Parallel and equidistant patterns have their own peculiar potency. Mercury/Jupiter inconjunct Moon and Sun inconjunct Chiron. They truly are parallel because there are factors at each point at 24 and 25 degrees! In this case the parallel is the same aspect, they have the same dynamic. A chance encounter in a glance. An adjustment, course correction likely. Moon is leaving; Mercury makes his connection with Jupiter exactly Aug 22 2:05 AM Pacific. There are lots of details to be considered, decision immanent. In Sun’s inconjunct, he too is leaving. There was an oblique exchange, Sun a little mystified perhaps. Chiron warmed by the visit, but unsure what Sun wanted. Maybe just an observer on the sea…. Now it’s quieter again, but there are things to mull over due to the revelations when Sun put light in the dark.

The two parallel inconjuncts are linked by semi-sextiles. Though a minor aspect I have seen semisextiles be strong! A common one is Sun semisextile Venus bestowing wealth in corporations. Here, Sun is semisextile lucky Jupiter! Both are good natured, athletic, teachers! Jupiter in Virgo takes a health spa vacation, hikes cross country, or takes a leadership seminar or enjoys a writers’ conference! Plays and publishing! Join the Guild! Moon is semisextile Chiron. Moon in Aquarius and Chiron in Pisces both can enjoy alone time whether flying or fishing! If a cause is involved they may find themselves with masses of people, maybe at a concert to raise money. Sometimes it takes a village, an awakening, to do a healing of long held sorrows. Deeper change may require a personal immersion in suffering to open a heart to compassion.

Arrowhead aka Focused Yod! Mercury/Jupiter are the point of the 5 planet configuration. Moon and Uranus are the frame for the standard Yod form, but in addition, Chiron is midpoint between them! Energy is usually thought of its being brought into play by the planet that moves into position, called approaching. In this case that would be Mercury. Though Moon moves faster, it has already contacted and woken all the players, including Mercury, with the feeling of change. Mercury wants to name the change, and in earthy Virgo, to ground it in our thinking, to find practical ways to inaugurate it.

Generally energy goes every direction. All planets are alive always. As another planet has awakened them, they have also given their energy to the passerby. Yod planets ‘behind’ the point planet(s), track the background. Those prongs, the scanner planets, have gathered intelligence, perhaps for aeons, and when triggered by close encounters like this, send it to the planet(s) at the Yod point, which in turn synthesizes it with its own and sends it out potently, three for one style! Mercury and Jupiter at the point, are rulers of opposite signs Gemini and Sagittarius, information, what it means and its purpose. Being together they are working in unity, coordinating the best factors of both. They like a bit of fun on the job, and may juggle things about for a good spitball fight!

That also works in reverse! Mercury and Jupiter are also always scanning, seeking. They snoop out the details in Virgo, organize it to potency better than a vitamin pill or a clean white shirt, and disperse that to the traveling companions trailing behind! Everyone is on the same page! Any one of the points in the triangle may take precedence when needed or if potently connected with your chart!

Aug 19 is Mercury’s first pass of the Jupiter Opposition/Inconjunct point, 24 Virgo, before Mercury retrogrades Aug 30. The Mercury Retrograde Cycle in Virgo started Aug 10. Mercury will cross 24 Virgo again Sep 9, the day Jupiter enters Libra, and October 3. See more These three crossings will keep the Jupiter set’s ideas in mind. The things we planned to do will be reviewed, updated. These are the preparations for the reverse aspects that start in Dec and go through 2017.

Venus, in Virgo now, was just trine Pluto. That can be a wealth aspect or the fears of not having enough. Virgo wants a plan based in actual skills. Pluto in Capricorn may mean hard work to get the training needed. Money to go to school may be in question, but with steady effort, likely doable. Get some help from advisors, seniors, pros in the field you want to get into. You will do better if you do things you love. Virgo and Pluto are up for better health and with right guidance, healing is a good bet!

Mars conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces is no easy combo! It may be slow and cold then hot and dry, over the desert into the sea! Mars hates going slow, being blocked, and Saturn can be like a brick wall, even in Sagittarius! Sag does have its opinions. Sag likes getting to the point and moving forward, but the Neptune fog is too thick to see through to take aim. Who knows where that trail is, dagnabit! Don’t be surprised if you get lost. If you are a hiker or at sea, be sure all your emergency devices are working and check in daily. Be a little careful about falls, weather conditions. Stay hydrated. Be patient with others and their difficulties. Be helpful as you can but take good care of yourself first.

The other notes. Saturn teaches us to conserve and in Sagittarius to focus. Scattered energy delays and confuses. Mars can help when Saturn loses confidence or old age is troubling. Mars says pick up your feet, let’s get a fresh start! Look, I’ll show you! Sagittarius can help us laugh even when we are down, and we all do have our foibles. Neptune helps us soften when Saturn can be rigid from habit. Saturn is the doubter but Neptune in Pisces is the dreamer and dissolves all the old boxes. There are no limits. Saturn does remind us the rent needs to be paid, so no running away or slipping into denial no matter how much fun it is! LOL So let them work for you too. Some old stuff needs to be busted, let to fall, less weight to carry. That new building is better!

It may be challenging, but we are so blessed to live in these healing times. Stay steady in the Light.

Orlando Shooting 2016 Astrology Chart Shots Fired

We have been having alot of outer planet connections! Astrology is complex, so how do we predict events? Especially if we don’t know the charts of persons whose charts connect with those events. And there are so many humans.

This chart of June 12, 2016 at the time of first shots fired, 2:02 AM Eastern, gives many indications. Some charts give little indication, being more in connection with the person’s chart. Most events are a combination of both.

I had been expecting something sad in this time frame because the Saturn square Neptune was the primary aspect at the time of the Nov 13, 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris 17 days before the Paris climate talks. 130 people were killed in Paris. There was so much grief around the world. Many people felt devastated, hopeless. The outdoor Climate Rally was cancelled after the bombings, so people put their shoes there, including Pope Francis, UN General Secretary Ban Ki Moon and Marion Cotillard. Saturn squares Neptune the second time June 17, only 5 days after the Orlando shooting. It is the primary aspect of this event as well. The planets will square the third and last time Sept 10, the day after Jupiter enters Libra Sept 9.

To me, this Orlando gay nightclub attack was so very sad because it was on vulnerable people who already have difficult lives struggling for safety, the love of their families, dignity, equality. Saturn wants to bring respect and order out of Neptune chaos and obscurity, get over denial. And there are times when after working hard, it’s good to just let your hair down, or just have fun on the weekend! This is so sad after last year’s right to marriage was won after so many long years.

Moon and Sun are always elemental key factors and they were square, at 90 degree odds from Moon in Virgo to Sun in Gemini. Though ordinarily a challenging square between them would be super emotional, Virgo and Gemini, both Mercury signs, are more logical. Omar Mateen, the gunman, was said to be utterly “cool and calm” expressing his sentiments while he talked by phone to law enforcement officials.

Mercury itself is at 29 Taurus, within a degree of the current position of the Pleiades, its central star, fixed star Alcyone at 0 Gemini. The Pleiades are the 7 sisters. In some traditional horary astrology they were called the weeping sisters and 29 Taurus indicated something to weep about, at worst, mass suicide. 29 is the last degree of any sign, a maturity, an ending, a finality. It can also be at the end of one’s rope. Something had to give. The 7 Sisters were also thought to have to do with homosexuality.

The Sun was with Venus, one who values himself, sometimes above others. Venus at 23 degrees Gemini was exact sextile, a harmonious aspect, with Uranus at 23 Aries. Uranus ranges from genius to insanity, and in Aries is proactive and generally unpredictable and fast at it. Mars has been coming retrograde, reawakening past passions, closer and closer to the opposite midpoint between them in Scorpio. Scorpio loves the night and stealth, is a planet of death as well as healing. The three form a Yod, a Y, with Mars of war at its point, the emphasis.

Since Mars is retrograde and close to its turning forward point, it is in station, holding this chafing inconjunct with Uranus for 37+ days. The very first inconjunct was way back on Feb 5. Now, allowing a 3 degree range, it started toward the second one on June 6, and will make the second exact aspect June 18, the day after the second Saturn square Neptune. The inconjunct is continuous within less than 1 degree through its third and final aspect July 13 at 10:16 PM Pacific. There’s no let up. A lot of awareness will be triggered. Stay alert to your surroundings. Make wise ongoing adjustments. Some will be slow and reluctant, others in the fraction of a moment!

Mars is bullets and triggers, a declaration of independence, fury. In Scorpio, what could be the compassionate therapist, can also be a dark killer with no mercy. Flavored by Uranus, an air planet, there can be a freedom from conscience, a loner, a radical and shocking situation. Uranus in Mars’s sign Aries can give a sense of being free to act as compelled. This Mars at 25 Scorpio was retrograding slowly, almost at its stand still station turning point it would form at 23 Scorpio. It was within one degree of Omar’s birth chart 24 Scorpio Sun and holding focus on the square to Omar’s Mars at 23 Aquarius. This echoes the Mars inconjunct Uranus, Uranus being the Aquarian planet. His intense violence is no surprise.

Since we don’t have a time of birth, the Moon’s degree can be ± 6+ degrees of the position in this chart. That means it could be in Taurus or Gemini. I think it is in Taurus, possibly closer to the fixed star Alcyone degree in the Pleiades that Mercury was at in the sky June 12.]

He had a 4 planet stellium in Scorpio, one of those planets being Pluto, Scorpio’s own planet. Venus one degree of Pluto can have no fear of death, consider it a blessing, the right thing to happen, even a mercy killing. Venus and Mercury both retrograde considered what to do over and over again, a true obsessive/compulsive taking things to the extreme.

The June 12 Moon in Virgo was also coming to inconjunct Uranus. Virgo is more calculating than helpful sometimes. With Uranus in Aries it could be technical support. Uranus of fame to the masses is the point planet in this second Yod. In Aries, action and leadership, it is a force to be reckoned with. Mars at the other Yod point in Scorpio quietly but powerfully at the other side of the chart, confirms and it happens.

Saturn square Neptune was preceded by a 3 months long Jupiter square Saturn. To Mateen’s thinking, all that is holy in Saturn, the Law, spiritual law, was challenged by, perhaps even laughed or scoffed at, disappointed by Jupiter. Jupiter is confident and good natured while Saturn is official, serious, less fun or funny, susceptible to being made to look the fool. As any good Saturnian knows, sometimes you just have to wait it out to see who’s right, which has the staying power it takes. But if you feel violated and hopeless long enough…. Both squares have ethical issues from traditional law, to the opinionated newly converted true believer, to those who haven’t a clue and could care less. Saturn, the traditionalist, may see the world crumbling around them, be deeply angered by law breakers and besmirchers, wants to make its mark, so takes the law into his own hands – a rogue and vigilante defender. Omar Mateen was right in his Saturn Return at 29 years old. Saturn is in his chart at 10 degrees Sagittarius; Saturn June 12 was at 12 degrees retrograding back to 9 degrees, making a long station on his Saturn. He felt strong and pure in his convictions. Long term aspects like this build up, sometimes to a breaking point. Sometimes they are tired, other times they are tireless and determined.

Jupiter trine Pluto can be super healing, untold wealth, or mass murder. Jupiter in Virgo is careful and organized. Pluto in Capricorn is deadly clever, focused, may be a paid assassin. Jupiter is lucky, and in the hands of harm, succeeds at that too. It took officials 3 hours to stop Omar Mateen.

The moment the chart Ascendant hit 0 Aries, the Vertex, a point of Fate, came to 0 Libra, exactly opposite, the axes precisely overlaying each other. Libra is the sign of war and Peace, and this time, with the Aries war god sign at the Ascendant, it was war. As the time came to the first degree of the first sign, the warrior and guns, the first shots were fired. Fate struck. From one side, Justice was sought. From the other, relationships were non negotiably ended, rendered heartbroken through a sorrowful lack of equality. 50 dead, more than that injured, the worst mass shooting in American history.

Aries is also blood, and there was a lot lost. Aries is also the sign of heroes. Good people lined up for blocks to donate blood when the call went out. Blood banks received such an overwhelming response that they asked donors to come back over the next several days. So many are outpouring their loving support, in this case literally giving of themselves, restoring balance as they can. Zero degrees also indicates new beginnings, and through blood shared, a mingling, a fusion, bonding of a kind, perhaps a deeper understanding, is occurring. The healing has begun.

This event has further serious implications. For the injured and the families of those lost, it will irrevocably change their lives. Though a majority may vote for legalized unions, there are still those who have fear and hate, extremism. Gun laws will be further questioned and fought about. Consensus is a long way off. There is no doubt it will affect the candidacies and elections.

May the Spirits of those lost rest in Peace. We shall overcome; your lives have not been in vain.

Please stay true, be safe, keep learning, keep teaching, keep your courage, be more gentle in our differences. Give your comfort and support as you can. The world needs us to stay strong and steady in the Light, especially at times like this.



Please
be reassured that if you or a loved one or someone you know has any of the above aspects either in your or their birth charts or have transits like these happening to your birth charts, it does not mean you will do or have these things done to you. We are all complex and it takes a lot of factors to push us beyond social reason. In fact, the same aspects of pain for one person can call forth the healer in another. We are humans at different stages of growth, perhaps young Soul, old Soul. The pain in one is sorrow for us all.

In spite of suffering and difficulty, we learn from tragedy. Astrologically we learn to see warning points. We all become more alert and aware, more compassionate. We renew our efforts to help others, and be better people.
