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

Beautiful art called Moon Seekers by Frost Alexis!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Early Degrees SIX Planet GRAND FIXED Square!

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

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

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

The rest of the planets….

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

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

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

IN THE BACKGROUND

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

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

New Moon!

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

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

Scorpio Dark New Moon Earthshine

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

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

Here is the full timeline with a brief description:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

MOON & SUN

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Full Thunder/Hay TOTAL Lunar Eclipse

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

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

TOTAL Lunar Eclipse July 27 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

IN THE BACKGROUND

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

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

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

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

New SuperMoon Solar Eclipse Inconjunct Pluto Ecliptic Point!

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

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

Leo Crescent New Moon Aug 11 2018 Solar Eclipse Josephine Wall

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

IN THE BACKGROUND

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

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

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

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

Mercury Mars Retrograde 2018 Drone Landscape Panoramic

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

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

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

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

Here’s the Mars & Mercury timetable:

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

June 26 Mars Retrogrades
June 28 Mercury into Leo

July 7    Mercury starts Rx cycle
July 25  Mercury Rxs

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mars Mercury Double Retrograde 2018 Astrology Chart

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

Aspects during the retrogrades

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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!

Gemini, It’s in Your Hands…

Gemini Prana Breath of Life Hand Touch

Prana is the life force, our breath. We breathe as we speak; that’s the sound of our Soul.

Sharing information is perhaps the most elemental, the daily Word that goes around the village.

Gemini is the sign of the mind, most specifically communications. There are many facets to be called upon.

Commanding, in Leadership or as Guardian. Lead what you do well. We all have personal Grace, a specialty or two that is part of why we are here. If your commands are true, you will be trusted and looked to for Guidance. Thank you. When necessary, throw your voice to deflect or ward off inappropriate energy. Call on your Higher Self. Your strength will be amazing.

Requesting We each can’t do everything. We Give to one another because it makes simple sense. Ask for what you need and honor the requests of others. If you can’t help, let others know what this person needs. It takes a village.

Praise. How we honor one another makes a difference. Being appreciated, acknowledged for the vital part we play keeps us tuned up and ready for the next venture. Sometimes we work hard, with no thought other than being who we are, yet that unique place we hold is essential to the total well being, the wholeness of All. We become One.

Kindness is another form of leadership. We make mistakes as we grow, get out of balance and ill at times. We have challenges in families, relationships and with our finances. A kind suggestion at the right time, an assurance that we will keep learning and find our way, may be just what we needed to hear. It confirms our worthiness. Someone took a few moments to notice. It’s the process that counts. We may land in a better place than where we ever thought we were going to be!

Singing! Hallelujah! Celebrate! Your gain is our gain, is encouragement for all. Invite us with your song! Sing it at night, at sunrise on the mountain, whistle while you ride your bike.

Chants, OM Chants can be about anything, for any purpose. As a Bumblebee vibrates its body at the C note, different tones, minors, majors, have cellular to spiritual effect. OM tunes you to the power of the Creator. Start your Gatherings, Circles with sounds of your choice – for yourselves, your intention.

Vocal Toning, Chakras Let the sounds of the voices wash over you, cleanse you, permeate you, go through you from Crown to Toes, and back up, out the Crown into the ethers of the Universe. You never left, but you have been changed by the voyage. If you are at the gym, let out some good grunts and groans as you open those Chakras physically as well! So satisfying! Yoga works too…

Soothing lullabies. To babies, for people about to leave their bodies, to yourself when you go to sleep. Breathe to gentle music too. Hum a little tune of your very own while you concentrate and get this little thing and that little thing done. Good job.

First, always Clear your Channels. Breathe deep, release, let go of old debris that dulls your energy, muddles your mind, blocks your way. Be sure your breath and intent are clear, pure. Up the amps by asking that you are cleared of long held energy you didn’t realize you are still carrying. It has its own weight, wastes your energy as you carry it day after day, and still attracts other such energy. No more.

Breathe deep, breathe out. Be still and open. Let the Infusion of the highest energy be with you. With intent share it out, a mighty blanket of wisdom, a cloud of Light. Listen to your breath. Breathe as Ra would breathe. Breathe as your hero or Savior would breathe. Breathe as the Buddha by the road would breathe. Breathe as Gaia breathes.

You hold the precious Breath of Life in you, your part in our world today. Think as you think, speak as you feel.

You can amplify your Breath, your Word, with your hands. Laying on of hands is an ancient practice. We all can do it. We all have Gemini, and Mercury, the planet of the Twins, at special places in our astrology charts. Some people ‘hear’ better when they are touched, grounded. Always, and only, do laying on of hands with entire respect. You are a Channel. It can be a massage, a hand on the shoulder, a hug, a handshake transmission.

Yes, there is duality. Twins are the remarkable symbol of it. Duality is a Gemini job and talent. We breathe in, we breathe out. We have two hands, Geminis often ambidextrous. Right brain, left brain. Harmonize them like an Artist, the Psychic, a Healer! Be well conscious of them; use this additional talent with direct attention and intention. Blessed be.

Gratitude. Give thanks for all that ever was, is and will be. When we say Namaste, we acknowledge the unknowable Divinity in every being. We are thankful for being in each other’s company. We don’t always know the import of the life they lead, the place it holds for all of us. We do not live for ourselves alone. There are many observers. We may not understand it in that moment, sometimes things seem bad, very bad, but in time we will see the value of even that experience too. What we are grateful for grows in a good way. Let the flower bloom. Gratitude is good fertilizer. Say your gratitude out loud.

Gemini is an incredible Sign. They have a huge capacity for an astonishing array of information. They can pluck data seemingly out of mid air, but when they received it they correlated it quickly, archived it automatically, and can give it back to you enhanced when needed! They hold informations from sources differing in points of view and can tell you the important points, plus, explain the style of thinking it came from, age factors, cultural backgrounds, along with the source’s financial standing! At times they are considered chatterboxes – there has to be some outlet, the dam has to spill! Old is let out so new can be let in. What they really have is a huge memory capacity that brims and flows with LIFE! Of course they are excited! They live on the collective edge every remarkable moment!

Gemini 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Summer Solstice Rock Platanos Greece

Nikolaos Pantazis wrote: “Every year, on the days around summer solstice, the setting sun aligns with that rock, near the village of Platanos, Peloponnese, Greece.” Thanks to EarthSky’s Deborah Byrd for the Solstice info!

Solstice Facts!

Solstice brings extremes of daylight and darkness

In N. Hemisphere, noontime shadows are shortest at this solstice

Each solstice marks a “turning” of the year

Longest day for N. Hemisphere, but not the latest sunset

Shortest day for S. Hemisphere, but not the latest sunrise

The slowest sunsets come around the solstices

Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Geminis’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde back into their previous signs, and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Chiron shifted from Pisces to Aries April 17. Less than a month later, Uranus shifts from Aries to Taurus May 15! They will both be in Aries April 17 to May 15, Uranus passing the baton to Chiron. Late in the year, Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8.

Chiron and Uranus have both made their first sign changes. It has been Chiron at 51 years and Uranus at 84 years, since they were last in these signs! Uranus has been in Aries, fire, and just shifted into Taurus, earth, May 15. No surprise Tutu Pele, Hawaiian Goddess of Fire, is venting, making lava fire of molten earth, changing the shape of Earth ~ both creator and destroyer! The next outer planet sign change Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces September 25. We will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as laying your bricks in a straight line.

Gemini 2018 hosts the second Jupiter Trine Neptune. There is much to talk about as we aim toward the possible blessings this will bring. We need to gather the people, tell them all about it, the important parts each will play, and line up the steps, respond in a timely fashion as it all unfolds!

RETROGRADES emphasis! As of May 12, we started into the Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde sequence. Gemini, one of Mercury’s signs, further emphasizes this passage! See the complete timetableJuly 25 to Aug 18 we have a Mars/Mercury double retrograde. Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus is retrograde, then Mercury retrogrades the very day Venus turns forward Nov 16! They make back to back retrogrades! The Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic is during the Venus retrograde.

With the multiple sign changes and retrogrades, things will be dug up, soil turned, soups, stews and mixed salads made! We will all be quite different and get used to multiple kinds of change! We will be more comprehensive, more aware and alert to things we never considered before, expanded – to say the least!

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background! More

Oct 30, Pluto crosses the Golden Ecliptic at Pluto’s South Node, going from North to South! This is a once every 248 years event! See more!

Outer Planet Transits with Gemini 2018 – June 2019!

Gemini Pansy Flowers! Full Face to Life!

Put a smile on it! Who knows who you will meet along the way?

Pluto in Capricorn reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018 moving from 18 to 23 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 21 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, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Gemini is properly flitty. They don’t mind responsibility that suits their spirit. But don’t tell them something you don’t want to get around. It doesn’t mean they can’t keep secrets, but when they get in the buzz of things, it may come out in the natural flow of the connection. Geminis may find underworld specialist Pluto a little dark and skulky, when Gemini is definitely out and about, sunshine preferred. Rather than therapist, Gemini is an info carrier and spreader that perks your interest! Capricorn wants to tell them what to do, put a timeline on it and standards of performance to measure your worth. Well, Gemini is an air sign and may feel caged by those attempts. They need freedom to spontaneously flow with where the juice is! Yet, a few guidelines can be helpful. They do listen, and use what you say to their advantage when it fits! Just be sure your expectations of them are realistic. Hire them for the right job.

Neptune is in its own sign, a water planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Pisces sees and dreams the vision, has empathy for those who suffer. Sometimes they need rescuing themselves, from being overwhelmed by what they see, from sadness that brings them down. Scintillating magical Gemini charms them with an array of current threads of information and insights that keeps Neptune from settling into a funk. Too much of that funk dampens Gemini’s spirits. Gemini will wilt and have to leave. But Neptune is also a dreamer visionary! Gemini will be excited to share the vision and carry word of it far and wide, person by person, who in turn will tell the tale!

Uranus covers 28 Aries to 5 Taurus! Uranus entered Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees of Aries will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is automatic. In fire sign Aries, it’s the First of everything, truly awakening! Aries is pretty unflappable, but this really shakes your space! Aries loves a challenge and new things. Rarely are they outdone in that dept, but Uranus has a bigger platform. It rules humanity, and although Aries is only one person, they step up because they know the value of key positions that make the difference! Uranus replaces some Aries circuits and the game is bigger yet! Can’t get enough! Young people have been fired up. The Awakener has opened their eyes! What powerful times we are in!

Gemini can’t wait to share all this exciting news! Changes are being made right and left, Gemini dancing to the music, mimicking and miming when words are not enough or languages are different! The laying on of hands has potency like never before. The breath of Life is fully charged! Gemini’s vantage point is raised to the highest level, the words more meaningful than ever thought they could be. What an honor to carry these messages.

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Now in Taurus’s sign it will specialize in Taurus topics! It either feels too close for comfort, or it’s the most fun you’ve had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! You 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. But 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! Divine body electric!

Gemini is both charged and soothed. Uranus is electric; Taurus slows down so things are fully absorbed and understood. Gemini likes fast but is still intrigued, so part of what he thinks about now is the magic of this staying process, becoming one with the thought. Taurus calls for an application. Gemini may need to adjust to figuring out exactly what can be done with these particular new ideas. That then becomes the greater reason for sharing. Pulling together like the great oxen of ancient times is an incredible experience! Twins know that deep in their Souls. We really are One.

Chiron, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, but now is in Aries, and covers different degrees, 27 Pisces to 5 Aries, the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces for awhile later on. See more. These are the last and first of the zodiac signs! Pisces believes; Aries takes action! Chiron entered Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees and signs, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head, brain and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Gemini, the sign of the breath, is not so easy with those life threatening water signs. Yet water is cleansing and any superfluous mental debris can be washed away to keep your Spirit clean. Your breathing channels may be cleared and your words flow more easily. Pisces lends a visionary insight that knocks you right off your seat! Chiron may ordain you as a teacher. How to talk with the Angels!

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Gemini will be giddy at times! How to keep up with this fiery force! How to let all those people know about the new healing techniques, get all the details on the newsworthy significant relationships as they come and go?! Initiation connections are precious and sacred. We learn more about how to speak and when to listen. Being inspiring is a spiritual technique. We need to lead people out of hiding or slumber, to realize what can be done and that they can do it! Chiron leads the way and Gemini has notepad and internet handy. Blogs and social media are flying! Standby for breaking news! “When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.” — Malala Yousafzai.

SATURN builds from 2 to 20 Capricorn. Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign, 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! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 2 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through May 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – 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. 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, 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! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn wants to groom Gemini for maximum effect! He sees the value of Gemini’s connections, vast information banks, hands on work, ability to advertise what they love, and super sales ability! Crackerjack! But it is important not to ‘capture’ them. They lose their loose and when it isn’t fun and free, to a degree, they lose their light and wither. Give your Gemini plenty of room. That’s how they stay quick and creative! But if Gemini is down for other reasons, it may be strong old Saturn that scoops you up to help you and get you back on your feet. If you made a mistake, they can help remedy the error. Sometimes a routine is reassuring and your breath gets back on an even keel. God bless. They can help you stay on course and put your words where they count the most! Award winning excellence, teamwork exemplified.   

JUPITER moves from 13 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!Jupiter in Scorpio! Scorpio wants you to heal, to heal your relationship and be healed by them, and increase your financial potential! Scorpio charisma is compelling, and has nothing to do with beauty. It is from a wellspring within. Scorpio is doctor hood, from cleansing your personal plumbing, purging toxins, to forensics. Scorpio often has extraordinary personal healing capacity, and can save your life too! They want to know how things work, do research. Jupiter may take Scorpio worldwide to seek investments, study shamanistic skills, find answers to lifesaving questions. Old remedies the midwives knew may come back into use. Through journalistic research justice may come for those who have suffered long extreme abuse – land grabs, sexual abuse, calculated theft, slavery/human trafficking, murdering of children and animals. Secret factions may unite for prevention, education, exposé and social justice. Be safe. If you aren’t up to par, take time out. Let your Ninja 6th sense and stealth protect you.

Jupiter is a fire planet, the planet of Sagittarius, the sign opposite Gemini. Jupiter can gather Gemini’s information, see it’s collective bigger meaning, the direction it points. Gemini doesn’t always realize the purpose of his gathering he is so intrigued by the singular importance of each treasure. He’s delighted when Jupiter makes it more and the reach of it all is greater, the perspective shown. Jupiter in Scorpio delves deep into the Great Mystery of life and death and teaches the sacred matters the raise us up, the Kundalini, how the Phoenix rises from its own ashes! Gemini is the Breath, the Word of Light. It is the sign of the planet nearest the Sun. Gemini understands how close to life we really live. They may nervously chatter at times, but even that represents the hum of Life. Gemini may not be personally delighted to look face to face into the Cauldron, but also realizes the secrets of power held there. Revelation is a mighty tool, and Gemini is there to tell the story in bite size pieces that people feel safe to take in.

Jupiter in his own sign Sagittarius, wants to share knowledge! Gemini is the opposite sign. Fire and Air! Air feeds fire. Jupiter is BIG here, the planet of abundance, luck. Truth, integrity, faith. Travel, teaching, playfulness. So many good things to share with Gemini! An invitation par excellence! But too much can interfere with Gemini’s more local and personal methods. The Twin is the Twin. They mirror others, a we-are-one special kind of trust. But, of course, knowing we are part of a greater whole gives us a frame of reference that makes us specially selective with information sources. Too much data fever, and we forget to just stop and have some fun! Fun lover Jupiter may lead us astray and delay us, but we needed that! Visiting a different ‘hood opens up our jaded senses, interrupts our habitual way of seeing and judging! Gemini plays tennis, a good volley is exhilarating! Sagittarius gets you up on the Horse, hikes you up the mountain so you can see further and your ‘hood expands instantly! Have fun!

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. 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 marriages are quite possible.

Wesak Full Flower Moon!

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

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

Gemini Full Flower Moon 2018

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

The second retrograde Jupiter in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces is followed by our Wesak Full Flower Moon spanning Sagittarius to Gemini. Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet, is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking often go with the territory. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with psychic believer and dreamer Neptune, in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may be taking a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time.

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

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

Gemini and Sagittarius, mind and meaning! 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

IN THE BACKGROUND! Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or Wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come.

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

NEW MOON – Two T Squares, Uranus and Chiron!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Two T Squares!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jupiter trine Neptune continues…. Jupiter is retrograde, in close aspect until the third and last trine Aug 19. Jupiter is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking are Jupiter super talents. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with Neptune in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may take a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time. See more, plan ahead, take the chance!

IN THE BACKGROUND! Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or Wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come.

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

Uranus Aries Dangermond Preserve Pt Conception

Dec 22, 2017 when Uranus was at 24° Aries, Laura & Jack Dangermond made a bold move. They donated $165M to preserve 24,000 acres at Point Conception CA. They hope their gift to the Nature Conservancy, their leadership, encourages similar philanthropic efforts. See more And from National Geographic

Uranus, the planet of Aquarius, goes into Taurus the same day as 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 created. Vietnam, the Kennedy assassination. We put a man on the Moon and explore the stars. Socially we can now talk publicly about sex, money, death. Food and health awareness, women’s rights, child molestation and abuse, animal rights, civil rights, from worldwide AIDS to gay marriage, and guns. We’ve gotten television, computers, the Internet, cell phones, film to digital cameras! Environmental awareness is on the table, and now, planetary climate change. That’s a lot in 84 years. We are not the same.

Uranus is the planet of R/Evolution, Stars, Space, the great Internet! Friendship alliances help us make change, find freedom. They support us to be the unique specialist person we were born to be! Sometimes being alone helps us clear our mind; uninfluenced we find our own special path. Uranus is the planet of philanthropy and electronics technology.

Chiron’s sign change into Aries is the first of the 5 outer planet sign changes of 2018. Chiron and Uranus travel together in Aries, one at the beginning, the other at the end, 28 days, until Uranus enters Taurus May 15. Uranus has spectacularly crashed and burned, created rifts and openings to ease Chiron’s way, to see new beginnings, work his healing magic in more etheric realms, do the business of the Soul! Uranus will pass the baton to Chiron. In Taurus Uranus will plow the fertile fields for further seeds to be planted by Chiron.

Uranus will be in Aries the first part of 2018 until it goes into Taurus May 15, on the Taurus NEW MOON. It’s the same day, Mars leaves Capricorn, jumps into Aquarius, Uranus’s sign! That keeps the frequencies amped, and Mars, new and first, unfettered in Aquarius the Awakener, is delighted to make the change! It does square Uranus, but that is just more exciting for those two, or a mere flea bite in the bull’s fur! Uranus stays in this preview in Taurus until it retrogrades back into Aries Nov 6 for the rest of the year.

The change into Taurus precedes the second Jupiter trine Neptune. See more. The first Jupiter trine Neptune, big dreams, was while Uranus was in Aries, the sign of new times, action to be taken, leadership. This time the dreams will be Taurus flavored. Like a farmer with the land, steady dawn to dusk, plowing, sowing, watering, feeding, harvesting, providing our food, our dreams will show us how to do these things in all ways in our lives. As in the old song, Bible verse, To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. This allowing, patience, the skill to harmonize with natural cycles, will continue to be emphasized because the introductory aspect, the second Jupiter trine Neptune, continues closely until it finishes in summer, August 19! This is a very psychic aspect and will keep us tuned in, precisely. Since it is an easy trine, we may not even notice it, and that is a beautiful trick of the heavens. Sometimes the most profound aspects happen without our really even giving it much thought. One day we just notice we have changed. It just gradually came over us….

Uranus in Aries certainly has brought a ‘revolution’ with the election of Trump. It is a classic reactionary state. Not everyone was in favor of a black president, nor the white woman offered. Too much at once. Financial, medical and age factors have changed and will change more. The environment and animals are being threatened. Those who are working to sustain equal rights – for women, races, sexuality – have their work cut out for them. Many international relationships are suffering. Uranus calls for comm-unity of purpose. Uphill battle. Many are rethinking the true meaning of equality. Young people, high school age, are speaking powerfully and marching, turning the tables. They will be voting age shortly.

Chaos. Uranus rules air. We had tornadoes, hurricanes and the attendant rains and floods. Aries rules fire and dryness. We had severe droughts, and 2017 we had the worst year on record for fires. California has had its worst fire on record. These ‘natural’ events are great equalizers. Rescuers hold no concern for your politics. They are there to help. Re-evolution might be another way to say it. So many have been literally moved from their locations, homes, lifestyle. Why rebuild the past when we can build our future?! Truly a time of great new beginnings! We can help each other learn to live and build sustainably.

Inventions have been extraordinary since 2011/2012 when Uranus entered Aries. Crowdfunding, robotics, drones, self-driving vehicles, work with genomes, reusable rockets, immune engineering, Tesla Autopilot/self driving trucks, reversing paralysis! And those are only a few!

We have been shocked, awakened, made new beginnings! Stay with it!

TAURUS! I don’t know if you can even imagine what Taurus will bring! Instead of rising on Aries rocket fuel, Uranus, the spaceship, is landing! Uranus will be in Taurus until April 25, 2026 electrifying every earthly molecule.

Taurus rules Earth herself. Expect environmental changes. More dramatic climate change and laws about it. Lands and animals will be abused by some, protected by others. Hopefully more people like the Dangermonds, preserving pristine tracts of land, will step up. Please guard Taurus’s tree, the Oak. As we had air and fire turbulence while Uranus was in Aries, Taurus may bring quakes and mudslides, cave ins, volcanic venting. Some will be unceremoniously uprooted. Political changes will be less volatile, but there will be steady progress, important basic rights not forgotten.

Plant genes are already being altered in hopes of making them yield more food and resist drought and disease more effectively.

Taurus rules our bodies, our beauty. Uranus may change standards of attractiveness, more selfies taken, LOL! As in reversing paralysis, disfigurements may be extraordinarily healed. Diseases will be cured and prevented. Taurus is noted for patience, but with Changemaker lightning Uranus there is no standing still, nor patience so much as in the past, yet patience itself may become exceptional. Taurus’s superb strength is being awakened! Respect.

Basic values may undergo serious shifts as we discover more in our world. Some will become practically robots themselves, living through electronics as their only experience. Others may go back to nature, small homes. Communal living may multiply as resources or finances dwindle, or because sustainable living is an ethical choice. There are solar cell inventions that will provide sustainable energy. We are living in majorly changing times!

Taurus is challenged, and challenging to, other fixed signs, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, fire signs Aries and Sagittarius and air signs Gemini and Libra. Taurus works well with other Earth signs Virgo and Capricorn, and water signs Cancer and Pisces. As the years roll by, factors in your chart will be activated per the degrees Uranus is at that given year.

Stand strong, steady in the Light!

Uranus Retrograde from Taurus back into Aries Nov 6

Aug 7 Uranus goes up to 2 Taurus, a bare glimpse, then retrogrades back into Aries Nov 6. But there will be precognition! Purpose will be established, Aries will look for the best ways to boost the new Taurus work. They will find the best ways to champion their efforts fitting to the cause. There will be potential new technology that will help show the way. Change may be surprisingly sudden. Some of it will be flash in the pan, while others will wake up the sleeping and dead and bring them on board! People you least expected will find their time has come. Really! There will be surprising results as people ignite and heed the last call! It will be 84 years before this transition happens again. Do it!

It is within that Taurus preview that Uranus hosts Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30! Pluto starts a powerful TEN days including Uranus’ retrograde return into Aries Nov 6!

Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at its South Node – a 248 year event! See more!!!
Oct 31 Halloween. Always magical to try on different roles, acknowledge the ancestors and their wisdom.
Nov 1 Jupiter trine Chiron one time in water signs. Maximum learning, healing, opportunity, possible marriage – but don’t do it yet!
Nov 6 Uranus back into Aries. No sleeping dogs! Champions and leaders are back on call! Time to rethink ideas.
Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon! Jupiter inconjunct Uranus. It never was meant to be a straight path! Deviate with the best of them!
Nov 8 Jupiter in own sign Sagittarius! The pleasure is your purpose!

2018 ends with the Lights ON! Pluto is intensified by the Light, channels the Light! Uranus is in the Aries firelight! A Scorpio New Moon may be dark, but Uranus is lightning and Aries is candles and firelight! This New Moon won’t be so dark as it usually could be. Jupiter in Scorpio might put a temporary shadow on Uranus, but even that wouldn’t daunt Uranus or Aries! Jupiter’s intensity in Scorpio could intrigue them to listen, but both Uranus and Aries function at warp speed, so Jupiter better be right to the point and quick about it! Eye contact will be brief to say the least! When Jupiter gets into his own sign, they will then both be in fire signs, but at opposite ends. Uranus will be at 29 Aries while Jupiter is at 0 degrees Sagittarius. They will make no further connections while Uranus is in Aries.

Fire signs represent courage and inspiration! Pluto, Uranus and Saturn in Earth signs are physical and practical, get it done. Perfect.

Feb 18, 2019, Chiron returns to Aries while Uranus is still in Aries. This is the second and last time they will both be traveling in Aries, 16 days, until March 6, 2019,  when Uranus returns to Taurus. This is their final exchange, sharing tips, thanking and wishing each other well. Uranus leaves Taurus for Gemini 2025-26.

In 20 years, the next sign they will travel together in is Cancer. Each of three times it will be for several months, 2038/39, again in 2039, and last in 2040.

“One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.” John F Kennedy  [3 planets Taurus, Uranus in its own sign Aquarius]
