New SuperMoon!  Saturn square Chiron, Mercury, GALACTIC CENTER!

Wednesday April 26, 5:16 AM Pacific at 6 Taurus 27! 

Galactic Center 2009 NASA

Hang onto your socks, Earthlings! In celebration of the International Year of Astronomy 2009, NASA’s Great Observatories — the Hubble Space Telescope, the Spitzer Space Telescope, and the Chandra X-ray Observatory — collaborated to produce an unprecedented image of the central region of our Milky Way galaxy! This image takes up about 1 degree across the sky. The Galactic Center is the white area to the right just below center.

First of four 2017 supermoons, a new supermoon! The new moons on April 26, May 25 and June 24 all qualify as supermoons. Tides are higher. Spirits have more volume! In Taurus that can mean more need for closeness, candles and romance, good food and lots of it, or an urge to secure our resources! We might exercise more or start a New Moon plan to do so!

This Taurus New Moon opens gentle doors to breaking down the barriers of the April 30 Saturn square Chiron healing. Chiron doesn’t always want healing, or give up secrets of the healing arts easily. Not all healing is comfortable as we let go, shift our lives, make adjustments. Sometimes we lose close relationships. Careers and businesses ventures may be challenged, breakthroughs possible. Recovery can be hard work, but we step out of the crucible over the threshold, a new person, no longer vulnerable to that old condition. Taurus can be the calming balm, soothing. It gives us fortitude, patience, determination to best the odds, endure until we are able to stand up again, to live in better ways.

Saturn in Sagittarius is retrograde, going back to make his second trine with Uranus May 18! An old Master, he is experienced, he knows that Uranian change is smart evolution, inevitable. It is a relief to old stunted stilted tired thinking. It frees us to a greater range of ideas, opportunities made more whole by a multitude of community contribution! The gains are so more worth it than the cost of the change to make them! Long term payoffs. Productive friends and associates. Sciences flourish.

Mercury is retrograding as well, going back to conjunct Uranus! In Aries it is fireworks and inspiration like never before! Every person is spontaneously independently giving their part! This is an outspoken crowd! Saturn in Sagittarius, trining them both, has important serious opinions. Uranus is the rebel ahead of his time, Aries is the volatile Leader of Light, Mercury is the Word – in this case shouted! I suspect the April 29 Climate March will have super impact!

The GALACTIC CENTER figures strongly in our New Moon chart! Saturn is at 27 Sagittarius, one degree of the GC! Yes, he squares Chiron, but also trines Uranus at 25 Aries, and Mercury at 26 Aries, they in lucky trine with the GC! Uranus, ruling the heavens, IS our galactic planet, and Mercury of mind is considered exalted in Uranus’s sign Aquarius. Mercury with Uranus is positively brilliant! Ideas ahead of their time, research that amazes the world. Mercury wants to talk, download! Probably intergalactic at this point! Just tune the dial! Speech, communications are emphasized! It can be gibberish to genius, higher learning in progress. Breathless with keen excitement, electrified fingers reach out to touch! We are alive and transforming ourselves and others at once!

Mercury is retrograde in Aries. Though fast in Aries, Mercury retrograde is also reviewing, turning it’s thoughts, going over what was done, might have been missed, what to do, how to do it better and be more to the point until May 3! He turns forward then and definitely puts things into action, trials and finishing details until he enters Taurus again May 15. From then on there needs to be visible progress. Aries is mind; Taurus is matter. Make time to think and be ready to use the ideas you have now for good results to come.

Mercury and Mars, the planet of Aries, are in mutual reception, in each other’s signs. With one eye over the shoulder, the other looking straight ahead, right between your eyes, sequences are instantly understood. With Mars in Gemini, the vision is all encompassing, scans are comprehensive and as fast as a blink! Trust your flash of insight; it is gifted. Quickly document all aspects with as many outlets as possible so there will be as much distribution and continuance as possible. Breathe out the Word!

In the beginning it will take many Souls to carry all the parts of this great body of knowledge. Each one will need to be free and independent enough to do their part. Each part needs to be protected until it is anchored while still pure. It is important that these Light Workers remain unclouded by popular thought.

These aspects lend an empowering background and meaning to the New Moon. At 6 Taurus, the New Moon makes no major aspects yet is vitally important to being a part of the fabric of the greater scenario. She acts as an unobstructed channel. Taurus stands in strength, able to support and sustain the platform for the massive amount of information that is coming through. Impeccable.

There are three planets in spiritual PiscesNeptune, Pisces’ planet, Chiron the Healer/Teacher, and Venus, herself at 29 Pisces, the last degree of the zodiac! At this time, these three hold the shimmering living vision that permeates our Being. Art and beauty, music, attract us, keep us tuned to deeper knowing. Neptune calls for compassion. Chiron repairs our sorrows and Soul, boosts us to the next level with its teaching.

Venus holds a special point not only because she is at the last degree of the zodiac, but she is at the degree of the Pleiades, the Seven Sisters! The Zuni of New Mexico call the Pleiades the Seed Stars; the Japanese call them Subaru, meaning ‘unite.’ They are in the shoulder of the bull, the TAURUS constellation, and Taurus is one of Venus’ signs! Alcyone is their main star. You can imagine what kind of troubles could ensue due to 7 sisters! Venus is susceptible to greed, envy, possessiveness, selfishness and self indulgence. On the other hand, 7 feminine forces to your favor wouldn’t be all bad, LOL! Can you imagine the strength in the shoulder of the Bull?!! Venus is a proponent of the arts, love and kindness, self esteem, clear values, and attracts money!

In a few days Venus concludes her mission here, goes into Aries, the first degree of the entire zodiac, Friday the 28th, 6:18 AM Pacific. Minutes later, Mercury then conjuncts Uranus in Aries at 7:50 AM! A feisty and zesty morning! Go to breakfast with your confidants and colleagues! Ask for their support with your causes; give yours to theirs as you can.

The Second Labor of Hercules

Alone and still filled with deep distress, Hercules must rescue a sacred bull [Taurus] from its intended sacrifice to Minos, King of Crete and deliver it to the mainland. On the island, where the bull is captive, is a vast maze, which can lure the adventurous to their bewilderment. Here, following the gleaming star shining from its forehead, Hercules pursues the bull from place to place. Single-handed, he captures it and rides it like a horse through the waters to the mainland, surrounded by the seven Sisters [Pleiades constellation]. He leads it to the Holy Place and delivers it safely to its guardians.

Today, the goal is attained through group effort. This group is ruled by Taurus, and to it that divine Taurian energy brings ‘illumination and the attainment of the vision’. This group is, figuratively speaking, the ‘bull, rushing forward upon a straight line with its one eye fixed upon the goal and beaming light’. That goal is not the goal of Self-illumination, for that lies far behind; it is the goal of providing a centre of light within the world and of holding up the vision to the sons of wo/men.  …excerpted and paraphrased from Lucis Trust

This is the annual merger of Moon and Sun in Taurus. Let it be your abiding guide. Center, focus, stay strong in your core. You may not be Hercules, but each of us is a point of Light. Keep it burning exactly your special way.

Full Flower Moon!
Wesak, Buddha’s Birthday!
Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Saturn trine Uranus!
Galactic Center, Scorpio – Pluto & Mars trine Jupiter!

Wednesday May 10, 2:42 PM Pacific at 20 Scorpio 24

Taurus - Woman Buddha Full Moon

Be your own Buddha!

The Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon opens our wings to the May 17/18 companion aspects, Jupiter inconjunct Neptune and Saturn trine Uranus!

Optimistic Jupiter in Libra visions as far off in time and space as it can! Neptune IS time and space, boundless. An inconjunct aspect invites exploration, peripheral vision, a detour to another dimension! Diversions, distractions and divisions. It can seem things are out of control, but comparisons are made, sensitivity is registered. Jupiter instinctively looks for the best. At any given time things only go so far as new cloaks are able to be tried on. Go lightly as options are considered. Rather than immediate stern defenses, ask questions and invite answers. There may be confusion that seems like mindlessness, but things get sorted out in time. If it is an emergency, stamp your foot and get everyone back to center focus ASAP!

Saturn makes the trine with Uranus May 18. He is the planet of time, age, wisdom earned by experience. Saturn employs boundaries for prevention and protection, regulates flow and distribution. Uranus is the planet of freedom, inevitable evolution, sweeping change, the heavens, sudden shifts of consciousness! There are no boundaries! Saturn linked with Uranus by a trine of success, can ride the plane, shift to different levels of awareness, bring the information home and put the amazing inventions to work for all! Universal blessings. Saturn sees the reality of change and picks what will work most usefully in current times. Those who are innovative for the greater good, and work in harmony with friends and community, will prosper. The whole system is advanced fortuitously. Remarkable!

Neither of these aspects may happen with flashing lights, but soon enough, here and there, results will become evident and the tide will change. What once were isolated outposts become networked teams. A less volatile resistance, more practical posture will be taken as new ideas, cultural integration, proves to work.

What does POP is that Saturn is at 26 Sagittarius May 8 to June 1, the very degree of the GALACTIC CENTER, the center of our Milky Way Galaxy! If you are so lucky to have factors within a degree or two of that number, what a mighty potential there can be if you are ready for it! Sagittarius usually does well with Aries and Leo, Libra and Aquarius, sometimes Gemini.

Moon Scorpio, Sun Taurus! What a mighty combo, fixed signs. Taurus, of Earth herself, immovable, organic, substantial. Scorpio is the sign of the Underworld with all his secrets. How can you change what you can’t see? Both are senses oriented, Taurus sensuality, Scorpio sexuality! Taurus holds position, anchors, while Scorpio ignites the Kundalini fire at the base of your spine! If you can’t see it, maybe you can feel it!

It may be a delicate situation. The huge red giant star Aldebaran holds the fire in the right eye of the Bull! If Taurus pushes, Scorpio retreats. Scorpio tries to circle around behind, but Taurus has always lived in the pasture and senses predator presence. And with their Taurus outwaiting solidarity, hooves and horns, they don’t be pushed much either. Scorpio’s star is Antares, also reddish, and has the cat eyes, Shaula and Lesath, in its tail! A scorpion may be small, but can be deadly and accurate. Powerful guardians. As a therapist they can change your life with few to no words at all! Symbolically Scorpio sees over, within, behind and beyond – the Past, current status, consequences of your actions. If your Taurus-Scorpio union has a mutual purpose, use each other’s powers wisely toward your goal. Let the rest be.

Moon in Scorpio is sextile Scorpio’s planet Pluto in Capricorn! It’s the power to use the old black magic! It can be charismatic, sneaky in the kitchen, love bites in the bedroom, killer with real estate, a high end thief, a healer of extreme suffering. Emotions run the gamut, from none and numb to inundation. Children and family, both Mom and Dad, weigh in strongly. Career may be easily achieved, or obsessive and wickedly never ending, never enough, or simply a lifelong dedication!

Sun trine Pluto, is a powerful wealth aspect. So many famous people have this aspect – not in these signs necessarily. Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Eric Clapton, and slinky Shakira. Also tragic Princess Grace Kelly, scary Bruce Lee, Christina RicciColin FarrellCharles BronsonSteven Seagal, Cate Blanchette, Francois Mitterand, Rupert Murdoch, Buster Keaton and George Sand. It’s kind of an odd combination in that the Sun is the Light, and Pluto was the God of the underworld, of death. But it also brings personal wealth because the Sun is the planet of Self, and puts its whole heart in it! To be charismatic, along with other factors in your chart, attracts recognition. Pluto can be perfectionist, obsessed, and what it decides to do, it does well, fearlessly. In Capricorn these days, it is working with sciences, time, elders, takes super responsibility (or none at all). It is political, tending to the conservative side. Works with laws, rekindles research to heal long standing diseases. It’s a shamanic powerhouse. 

As Saturn backs away from his April 30 square with Chiron, Moon is coming in to trine Chiron. Chiron may have felt a little chapped by Saturn’s demands, square realities to be faced, and bruised a bit by his judgments. Moon in Scorpio is here to soothe Chiron’s wounds. Moon loves you no matter what, Scorpio is not afraid you might bite. Scorpio wants to know where it hurts so it can know what to do. And Sun lightens things up, sextiles Chiron with a calming peace in Taurus, brings the flowers and herbal lotions. As they give you things to do that you do well, you perk up, get your strength and honor back.

Mars in Gemini is about to square Neptune in Pisces, then pushes its trine with Jupiter in Libra! First there is some time in Neptune’s foggy dew, searching for your lost keys. Who knows what other marvels have presented themselves, mysteries have been solved?! Or maybe it is good exploring underwater and you are even a little overwhelmed by all there is to see. And what dreams! At 13, 13 and 14 degrees, these three planets are closely linked. Understanding and a burst into action and spreading the good word are almost simultaneous! There is sudden insight, a breakthrough to compassion, and seeing who to connect with to carry the messages, all at once. Suffering is a strong motivator. Time to let go of addictions, get some exercise, turn the tables. Get in some tennis time, step into some new dancing shoes! Hang out with healthy allies!

Mercury in Aries and Mars in Gemini are still in each other’s signs, a mutual reception! Mercury is direct, moving forward now, and has just electrically conjuncted Uranus the second and last time yesterday! We are reminded to put the brilliance of that connection we had at the New Moon into channels of fulfillment now at this Full Moon. In sympathy with Mars of leadership and action, we are inspired and it happens! Easier than expected!

Every single planet is engaged at this Buddha Birthday Full Flower Moon! It is pregnant in Spirit, linking between each of us, with our peers, partners and equals, to our community and the world at large!

May your life be filled with sweet connections!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Venus in Pisces

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Full Snow Moon! LUNAR ECLIPSE!

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

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

Moon Setting Eclipse Patrick Cullis Indian Peaks Boulder Colorado

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

LUCKY Grand Fire Trine Sun KITE, Mystic Rectangle!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That said, I wish you great success!

Aquarius, HighLights 2017
Aquarius, the Flight of a Lifetime!

 

Happy Birthdays, Aquarians!

Aquarius Oprah Winfrey Air Sign at Grand Canyon!

Oprah at Grand Canyon ~ magnificent, majestic and sacred! She has dubbed 2017 the YearOfAdventure, so she’s exploring the great wide open and inviting you to do the same!

Jan 29, 1954 Oprah Winfrey arrived on the planet and has become a known part of the planet. From obscure small beginnings she has risen, become the first woman in history to both own and produce her own talk show. Many of you know much of her achievements – influential book critic, an Academy Award-nominated actress, magazine publisher. She is also, according to several assessments, the most influential woman in the world.

What many don’t know is Aquarians are great bankers! And Aquarius is the sign that follows Capricorn, the sign of career, making Aquarius the receiver of the spoils! Having that wealth gives the opportunity for sponsoring community work and international organizations. Oprah holds the distinctions of being the richest African American of the 20th century, the most philanthropic African American of all time, and the world’s only black billionaire for three straight years! 2.9 billion USD (2017) Forbes

Venus conjunct her Sun gives beauty and money! They and her Mercury in Aquarius trine her Jupiter in Gemini give her super intelligence, a quick wit, a broad view and more money! The Moon in Sagittarius was born to go places, cross cultural gaps, be a natural teacher! Jupiter and its sign Sagittarius are optimistic, see far ahead, are lucky in their pursuits! And it’s fun! Aquarius and Sagittarius are in combination, signs that need freedom and often don’t marry. She has been with her boyfriend Stedman Graham since 1986; they spend a lot of time apart and have never married.

Venus with the Sun gives self indulgence, a love of sweets and carbs. Aquarians aren’t famous for calorie burning exercise, nor is Venus unless it is dance. Her Mars in Scorpio square Pluto in Leo can block exercise through embarrassment, need for privacy, physical discomfort. She has been a brave woman publicly facing these challenges that so many scorn. Yet these same placements have also helped her break many financial barriers!

Oprah’s latest book Food, Health And Happiness is now available at Amazon: ‘Oprah Winfrey will be the first to tell you, she has had a complicated relationship with food. It’s been both a source of delight and comfort for her, but also the cause of an ongoing struggle with her weight. In Food, Health, and Happiness, Oprah shares the recipes that have allowed eating to finally be joyful for her. With dishes created and prepared alongside her favorite chefs, paired with personal essays and memories from Oprah herself, this cookbook offers a candid, behind-the-scenes look into the life (and kitchen!) of one of the most influential and respected celebrities in the world. Delicious, healthy, and easy to prepare, these are the recipes Oprah most loves to make at home and share with friends and family…a taste of happiness, a ritual to be shared, a toast to life!’

Remember, she has proclaimed 2017 the Year of Adventure. She says ‘Try different restaurants. Take a class on something new. Be challenged. Get stimulated. Have some fun! And redefine what fun means for you.’

Celestial Highlights!

Astronomy Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Full Moon Feb 10, 11 2017

Thanks to Sky & Telescope for this image!

Per Sky & Telescope: ‘The beginning and end of a penumbral eclipse are not visible to the eye. In fact, no shading can be detected until about 2/3 of the Moon’s disk is immersed in the penumbra. This would place the period of eclipse visibility within about 3/4 hours of greatest eclipse (about 00:00 to 01:30 UT1). Keep in mind that this is only an estimate. Atmospheric conditions and the observer’s visual acuity are important factors to consider.’

It is often hard to differentiate between a normal full Moon and a penumbral eclipse of the Moon, but watch closely at mid eclipse for deep penumbral shading on the northern half of the Moon closest to the Umbra!

The Pacific time for the Eclipse is 4:33 PM, but best viewing times are different!

Penumbral eclipse begins: 2:34 p.m. (on February 10)
Greatest eclipse (nearest umbra): 3:44 p.m. (on February 10)
Penumbral eclipse ends: 6:53 p.m. (on February 10)

For how to convert UT to your own local time, see Time Zones and Universal Time.

Enjoy watching!

2017 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Aquarius!

Aquarius Big Skies Space Freedom Beauvert Lake, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada by traveler, self described scrambler ChrisW

Big skies, great space gives an Aquarian room to move around! On a clear day you can see forever. Beauvert Lake, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada by traveler self described scrambler ChrisW

Pluto is just past mid Capricorn through Jan 2018. 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! Aquarius has no such attachments as Pluto does, not known for obsessions, compulsions. Aquarius is Capricorn’s neighboring sign ahead. Capricorn built the structure so Aquarius can be free to meet there, contemplate and organize community groups, world networks to update old ways, invent new channels! Aquarius is the last Air signs. Gemini is our personal breath of Life. Libra is the breath and air among us, living relationships. Aquarius is the planetary air above us that we fly in, that unites us all. Resources are intentionally directed to make the world a better place.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is 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! Aquarius is the sign before Pisces, that transmits the Word on the winds across the world, through the internet. It breathes the beliefs of Pisces through us so all may know what needs saving. Timeless visions are to be awakened with magical words. Right at home, friend to friend, profound matters are discussed looking for unusual approaches that will shake us from our sleep! Neptunians understand our oddities and the language of the future, have an uncanny knack for seeing where to go and why! They are happy to be our Guides, sensitive to every nuance.

Uranus covers 21 to 28 Aries through January 2018. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. ChangeMaker Aquarius feels right at home with this visitor of his own kind, ever moving, inspired and inspiring! Aries is First, is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Not only do they have the ideas, but they get put into action! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries just might keep up! Aquarius likes speedy sports, air inclined, but their weakness is the think tank blues, sitting entranced at that keyboard, inventing or sneaking in a computer game here and there! Aries gets them outside, demanding better food to support the mountain hike in fresh clean air!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, like Uranus, also covers 21 to 28 degrees, but in Pisces through January 2018. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Aquarius incorporates all kinds of electronics into our modern medicine, from digital thermometers to taking a ride in the body scanning machine at the hospital! Research is one of their businesses, innovative solutions can succeed where old remedies didn’t work well enough. Neptune might recommend meditation, relaxation, transformation through doing work you love, something meaningful. Aquarius couldn’t agree more! They know that freedom is Being, true to your core. Though Pisces the Magician might wish for fairytale romance, Aquarius may wish for freedom more. Chiron can help them see how a partnership with someone who is comfortable to let them come and go on whim or airline schedule, is bright like they are, or simply gentle, kind, patient, grounding and admiring, could work quite well!

Saturn travels from 21 degrees Sagittarius to 3 degrees Capricorn in the year ahead. Aquarius enjoys a good trip with business compadres! They can go to meetings to promote special projects for sustainability, improve laws for more people, build universities, contribute computer gear for students or seniors! People of different cultures will add their values, innovations, manners and customs that improve well being. Bonds may be formed over distances, territories realistically expanded. Aquarians may find themselves quite comfortable in a business that intrigues them. They are more willing to take care of themselves because they have good reason!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, there will be more traditional endeavors. There will be preservation, building for long term results. Rules, responsibility, respect for elders called for. Aquarius can see how this is favorable. Long term means choosing what makes sense for our environment, to protect the future for our children, build and select systems that favor seniors. Aquarius will be hard pressed to keep up with inventions for the needs of the people! Research may bring some medical breakthroughs.

Those of you with Saturn 21 Sag to 3 Cap will be having your Saturn Returns, a 29 year event! Saturn can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements in that 29 years! If you are on your first Return, you may be having substantial career success, marry, have your first child, buy a home! If you are on your second Return, you may be thinking of retirement plans, be called to take care of aging parents. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from experienced experts may be just what you need. Sagittarius Saturn may find their travel budget lacking for the time being, or they may find perfect low budget opportunities! Education may need to wait, but is still a good investment as soon as possible. Capricorn Saturn might have more work than anybody should, or they are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when they get replacement work that suits them better or start their own business! Take good care of yourself, keep your networks alive. Housing, parenting may be challenged. Age may become a factor. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have!

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Aquarius thrives in all that travel to far away places, meeting people who think out of the box we are used to! A travel or import business could be lucrative! Relationships may work better than usual. Libra has a certain amount of flexibility, is intelligent, and has a broader range of give and take than many other signs. Jupiter can be opinionated, but learns from inventive Aquarius and it suits them because Jupiter always has an eye to future and greater possibilities. Jupiter’s optimism is contagious and Aquarius is surprised and pleased to find a thoughtful and willing colleague!

Happy Birthdays, Aquarians! Quite an exciting and productive year coming for you!


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

Aquarius, the Flight of a Lifetime!

Aquarius, the Flight of a Lifetime! Earth Girl

Angels for Earth, my title, by Roberto Campus. Roberto lives in rural Vermont, and his client list is long and famous!

Not your average citizen! Aquarians are seekers beyond small thoughts. Magical flying dragons to Angels of Magnitude, they take us there.

Above and beyond! Aquarius is an Air sign, rises above all other signs! It is the high wind that speeds along the mountain tops. It is the air that planes fly in and spaceships travel beyond!

The Aquarius double zig zag symbol is where the mountain tops meet the sky, the Aquarius Zone, where the crisp air goes straight to your brain! Freedom of the Ethers! Elevation, tall vision, in the invisible element! The Internet is a form of modern day ether, and many an Aquarian is accused of being legless in their computer chair, no exercise, no sun, not even much air! Either way, fly your hang glider or zot around the internet world whenever you are intrigued to do so! Awareness expands, awakening begins!

Electronic music is the sound of the Universe thinking ~ airy melodies that float, or ones with a fast beat that tickle your neurons. Exotic unruly out of the box jazz is inspiring and contemporary music that defies definition pleases your Soul! Music from every dimension, different cultures, with strange instruments and tonal qualities are quite comfortable. Singing, making your own music, is entirely free, and your voice may be incredibly unique.

Aquarians excel in all uncommon activities, which seem to have a magnetising effect on you! Aviation, parachuting, ballooning, hang gliding, rock climbing, pole vault or high jump, skating, skiing, and free form dance, etc. Sports with friends, or Solo hiking, especially at the alpine high-in-the-sky level refreshes your spirit. On earth, birding with friends or on your own can take you to unique places.

Inventions, innovative businesses, detached bankers and bartenders, writing, astronomy and space odyssey fantasies open gateways. Humanitarian projects to help people and/or the world are a scale you can appreciate and thrive in. That’s where you might meet your match! Someone with a consciousness that is quick with creative solutions, not afraid of your ideas and intelligence, broad in scope, life changing, keeps you connecting. It’s electric!

Because Aquarians themselves can be eccentric, odd, loners and lonely, people of all kinds, who aren’t mainstream, feel comfortable to tell them the unusual things about themselves. Aquarians are more fascinated than fearful. They often simply accept what is rather than judge it. Their friends certainly aren’t boring. Aquarians will have an eclectic group of friends who don’t necessarily enjoy each other! A research team, computer project, a mutual cause will more likely bring them together productively for a time. Then they will migrate in different directions to higher ground in a good way.

Healthwise, your body really does need food. Just as the planet needs sustainability, so do you! Go for quality food, explore what exercise you actually would like to do. Sleep as you can. Aquarians always have that hum, buzz, are plugged in to the greater world intelligence. There are places and people different beyond the average person’s wildest imagination! Stay well so you can go there! Things need doing. Be well so you can do them. Find mind changing ways to communicate your special gifts, insights. Keep your brain well fueled so it is present for the crucial moments of exchange, when the next level can be attained!

There are many Angels in disguise. Some laugh and tease us. Some are not pretty. We are enchanted by others. We know there is something right around the corner and we catch a glimpse. They hold our hands to cross the inter dimensional bridge. Some are lovers, others are the stranger you will never see again. There are everyday teachers that take us with them. Some walk, some fly, but every Aquarian is on the flight of a lifetime!

We are on the threshold of a vastly changing reality. You have a special part in its unfoldment.

Saturn in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries - World Friendships!

Unique friendships across the world…

4.19.17 Notes: These four aspects closed 2016, repeat two more times, are now the main aspects of 2017. They finish Nov 11, 2017. Eleven, eleven! Currently the closest aspect in progress is the April 30 Saturn square Chiron. See #3 below. Next is Saturn trine Uranus May 18, at 26 Sagittarius, the very degree of the GALACTIC CENTER! See #1 below please. For its May 17 companion aspect see Jupiter inconjunct Neptune. These aspects are all strongly tied with the Taurus time New & Full Moons.

x
2016 opened with a second time of three Jupiter VIRGO opposite Chiron, inconjunct Uranus. Jupiter inconjuncted Uranus two times. Jupiter in LIBRA reverses the aspects, opposite Uranus, inconjunct Chiron! It started opposite the first of 3 times the day after Christmas. Holiday differences of opinions, broad exchanges of information were very likely. 2015, 16, 17 have been and will be linked by these reverse aspects from different signs to Chiron and Uranus. See more! In addition, SATURN starts aspecting these two planets as well, Christmas Eve and on the Dec 28 NEW MOON.

These aspects are part of what I’m calling the Holiday Four at the end of 2016! Saturn and Jupiter are alternating. The first two aspects are to Uranus, the second two are to Chiron. All four aspects are different, strongly activating factors in our charts from 18 to 23 degrees.

  1. Christmas Eve, Dec 24 Saturn trine Uranus, 20 degrees. May 18, 2017 retrograde at 26 Sagittarius. Third and last Nov 11 at 25 Sag! Saturn goes into Capricorn Sep 2017. Uranus goes into Taurus May 2018. Saturn retrogrades back to an almost exact trine Uranus. Uranus goes into Gemini eight years later, April 2026. Saturn catches up to make the conjunction June of 2032! It will be 16 years before we have another exact aspect of these two.
  2. Dec 26 Jupiter opposition Uranus, 20 degrees. Mar 2, 2017 at 22 Libra. Last Sep 27 at 27 Libra.
  3. Dec 28 Saturn square Chiron, 21 degrees. NEW MOON 10:53 PM Pacific. Jupiter sextile Saturn closest Dec 28/29. April 30, 2017 second Saturn square Chiron 27 Sag. Third and last Nov 2 at 24 Sag.
  4. Dec 31, last day of the year, Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, 21 degrees. The year finishes with aspects to Chiron. Second inconjunct was Feb 14, 2017 at 23 Libra.. Last is Sep 23 at 26 Libra.

1. Saturn and Uranus rule neighboring signs earthy conservative Capricorn, and far, far out electric air sign Aquarius! Short and tall! Saturn is the lawmaker, Aquarius the lawbreaker! Saturn says if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Aquarius takes the clock apart and puts it back together, figuring out a new way to make it better. Saturn, the builder scientist, is so steady, determined. Uranus is infinitely unpredictable, thinks out of the box, researches and invents! Saturn puts up the framing, Uranus installs the electrical system. A trine is usually a harmonious link, so businessman Saturn and banker/bartender Uranus do find common ground – buy the bar or bank, right?! And they can be surprisingly great friends! Off to the patent office, then into production! Futurist Uranus, ahead of his times, chats it up with Saturn in farseeing Sagittarius. Together they get insight how to make things work for current everyday use. Saturn happily follows right along.

Saturn in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries brings a calming, a reasonable sense of responsibility, yet is still spunky in fire signs! Sag and Aries love their independence, so Saturn ordains and protects the function of much needed fast getaways to restore the spirit. There is more leeway with working hours, less hovering to see things get done ‘properly,’ more creativity encouraged! Working with friends is super, same general goals, things get done quickly. Uranus in Aries does split second mid air research that saves time, points amazing directions, is invaluable in making this project stand out above others of the past! Flying consultants in, brainstorming, making new working friendships and alliances is just fun! Have your gifts ready! The company party will be in good taste and spectacular with the computerized light show! Don’t forget to invite your Father’s friend and take lots of px for Facebook!

The May 18 second/retrograde trine Saturn is at 26 Sagittarius, the very degree of the GALACTIC CENTER, the center of our great Milky Way Galaxy, the Sun of our Sun! It is considered to be a stunning source of energy, motivation, and aspiration, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Uranus was the God of the Heavens, rules the stars, in other words, is our galactic planet! Saturn, the planet of reality, simply makes the channel clear for clean transmission and reception!

The last trine with Uranus, Nov 11, eleven eleven seventeen, is the first of the amazing continuous positive string of aspects late 2017 through Nov 1 2018! Do it well; get a good start!

2. Jupiter in social Libra livens up in opposition with Uranus in Aries in the dark of winter. There are choices to be made, who to hang with, go together or stay out of it, independent. There may be separations from friends, and I don’t just mean holiday travels. Letting go has its merits. Meeting new potential partners, business and pleasure, is likely. Negotiating across the table can be done with regard, giving equality, accepting the ways of others, integrating the gifts all bring.

Jupiter opposite Uranus can bring a shocking or super exciting event. Be cautious about flights. Get the insurance, choose an airline with high safety standards and a good track record. Be careful in general. Don’t stray from your group. World events often happen a week or so preceding the date, Dec 26, up to 2 or 3 days following. As much as New Moons are thought to be quiet, they can be a time of intense focus. even loneliness. If leaving your holiday family gathering, you may not be as alert as you think things over, miss them. Keep tabs on your surroundings and the people with you.

This is a significant aspect because it emphasizes matters of the challenging Uranus square Pluto. It is a reminder of happenings since 2010 that remain with us, many taking years to work through. That square returns to a 5 degree or less closeness 11.29.16 to 4.13.17, Uranus then leaving Pluto behind. During that time Jupiter also squares Pluto. That configuration will bring actively challenging Cardinal T Squares and a Grand Cross – Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn. March 7, 22-23 and 28 (NEW MOON Mar 27) will be particularly potent as Jupiter closes on its second square with Pluto exact March 30 at 19 Libra. See more

3. WARNING. Saturn square Chiron blocks or breaks away. The Magi astrologers consider this a sad aspect of loss in relationships, wounding, depression. I have a realistic regard for this one and won’t recommend holiday marriages this year unless you have way above average compatibility, both of you have super progressions and otherwise fabulous transits, and your astrologer arranges the very best possible date and time for you. But good compatibility can be brought down by a wedding chart fraught with long term difficult aspects. Why pick aspects like this when you can do so much better? Classically three of the Holiday Four aspects are difficult and none are traditional marriage aspects. Though the Holiday Four are activating 18 to 22 degrees, and that may not activate any factor in your charts, they are still part of the wedding chartIt will have problems, and that chart is the one for the purpose of your union. If Karma comes calling, and you must do it, then study up on these aspects well. In some ways the tables can be turned; in others, you will do the dance as spelled out.

That said, here are some ideas how to use this square to full advantage. Buckle up. Saturn knows how to prioritize, condense its energy, waste no time, has super focus, puts the right people in the right places to get the job done! Yes! Just like a Surveyor, in Sagittarius, they can locate to the right place within a hairsbreadth, build with confidence! They have the wisdom to pick projects that make sense over time, adding up over the years, future benefits multiplied! Hard work pays off.

Chiron was immortal and suffered a wound that wouldn’t heal. Through that experience he became an adept healer and teacher. In Pisces, there is a wordless compassion, often giving lifelong service to causes to benefit humanity. Chiron is also considered to be an astute business planet. Health spas, hospitals, senior facilities, schools and all their associated functions, working in these ways, as healers and teachers, express this energy well. Building facilities and housing, working in human resources, providing services to your community, are some of the ways Saturn and Chiron can combine their skills and intentions, work together for the greater good.

At the personal level, Saturn may need to learn when to get down on his knees, take a holiday break, leave the work at the office. In Sagittarius the wild card is wanting to run away, procrastinate some. Maybe that’s good, maybe not. But take a look at it. Take care of things that make you want to run away. Either it’s part of life and you need to man up, or it’s time for a change. If you need it, get some support. If you need support in your relationship, get it sooner than later. Save time down the road and don’t let things get beyond fixing. Be proud of your accomplishments and use that as a springboard to mentoring and teaching. Chiron in Pisces may be challenged by the ‘wounds’ of confusion or addictions, fear and escape. Holidays are often a tough time. Do your best to keep stress lower, avoid trigger situations, be with knowing and supportive people, go to extra meetings if you need to. Have your responses ready. Leave if you need to. Eat well, get a little exercise, and plenty of rest. Healer heal thyself. It’s ok to be exactly who you are, exactly where you are at. Blessed be.

If you are well and safe, do some special volunteer work. Get on the road and give some tenderness to others in need. Share your expertise. Serve dinners, scope out the soup line for a mentoree! See how your company can serve the community with its profits. Make those tax donations! What goes around comes around. Plant your seeds well.

4. Jupiter inconjunct Chiron spreads the healing. 

Those of you trained that inconjuncts are bad, have only half the info! For many years I just about shivered when I saw them coming. Divorce was likely because partners were distracted, sidetracked – read stepped out. Uncomfortable things were avoided/ignored, daily things untended added up, causing more stress. Debt was often as finances were neglected, divorce caused extra expenses to both parties. Death was even part of the scenario. People just up and left the planet, lost contact, often unexpectedly estranged, though if you looked way back, you could have seen the signs. In many ways, it all seemed out of our control. Astrologers didn’t use the 150 degree aspect very much when I first started astrology, thinking it was hard to see in a chart, and to this day, it isn’t listed in many astrological calendars, even the Jim Maynard calendars! The other word for it was even weird, quincunx. Time to turn the tables.

Here’s the other half. Rather than bungling through or not at all, be proactive. It’s there, an open link, use it! Jupiter is adept at sizing up potential, eager to check out the sidelines. Detours are often more interesting than the daily ride. With Jupiter in Libra there surely needs to be some reassessments over there! Proactively offer your peacekeeping legal services, coaching expertise, the grace of your ideas and insights. Talk about what you see – both sides, leave no stone, weak spot, unturned. Chiron was a wise Centaur, so ask your questions, commiserate and consolidate! Put ignorance behind you. Whether you go back to the main road, or keep on going on this one, your knowledge is enhanced, good to spread it out as far and wide as possible! Your network expands into a whole new quadrant! You are not alone on this quest. Others will be traveling it as well and you can share what you reap at the crossroads.

[5.] In addition to the above four aspects, there is an almost, very, very close Jupiter sextile Saturn riding along with them. Jupiter and Saturn come closest Dec 28 (Capricorn New MOON) and 29! This, a positive aspect, may also bring up sadness, but deals well with it. See more

These Holiday Four are the first of three aspects each. They end 2016, and are active two more times each in 2017 also. Do your best to do them well. Get them off to a good start; the best results are yet to come!

May your New Year be well blessed.

New Moon!  Four Planets Sagittarius, Midpoints, Two T Squares!

Tuesday November 29, 4:18 AM Pacific, at 7 Sag 43

Sagittarius New Moon Milky Way Road

The road less traveled. American astrophotographer Aaron J. Groen is the author of a fantastic series of photographs that were made at night amid the vast territories of his native state of South Dakota. See his Setting Supermoon on November 15th, 2016! 

Four planets in Sagittarius! A new moon has a coming together feeling. In Sagittarius Mama Moon completes the 27 day marathon to arrive breathlessly beside Father Sun! Together they survey the vastitudes, sometimes remembering, often grateful and celebrating, sometimes longing, seeing a better way and often how to get there too! Moon rules the feminine, cycles, the mood of the people. In Sagittarius her home might be a camper, the tent she carries, a teepee or yurt. She gives Sun a sweet kiss, he glows and she is filled with Light, ready to go on. Before she goes she tells him how the past is changing, the current news, how the future is becoming. The State of the Union. He has her perspective and is guided to a more on point focus.

  • Saturn in Sagittarius harnesses the forward energy, guiding, holding for best timing, keeping track. No not showing up or running away. Saturn holds you responsible. He is so dedicated he needs to guard against burnout and take time off and away. Where Sag would spend quickly, Saturn sets allotments. Best to keep a party fund too! 
  • Mercury in Sagittarius thinks out of small boxes and past the large ones too! He is so optimistic it’s contagious. Everyone hopes for a better way, a better time. We need that hope and instinctively gravitate to a generous possibility. Surely there is a way! Sagittarians are often taller, so they literally see more of what can be, choose the best Path!

7 Degree Sagittarius New Moon at T Square point with the Moon’s nodes axis, and Neptune in it’s own sign Pisces. The Moon’s nodes span from Pisces in the South, to Virgo in the North. The South is thought to be the old ways, a reservoir of knowledge. Maybe it got a little out of hand and we need to balance with the other sign. A planet at the South helps round out unfinished matters. Neptune in its own sign doubles that potency. There is still a need to let go of fears, addictions, for compassion, a deeper understanding, to put art and music in one’s life, pay attention to visions, live our dream, be who we are as a Spirited Soul. The North Node is so different in Virgo that wants all the beans counted as you go. Sigh. But it’s just another kind of flow. Virgo is extraordinarily present in our daily life. Everything matters. All those dreams can be applied in service to our fellow travelers. Health care, clean daily living, saving time and resources, keeping the focus of why we have that budget. Pisces is water, Virgo is right here on Earth. Both are essential and valuable.

Sagittarius squares Neptune/Pisces. Pisces can be mournful at times, but Sag wants to play and ride those waves, it’s no time to drop anchor! Sag wants to know why that spiritual tenet is true – is it dogma or delusion? Pisces can be illusive and Sag finds it hard to make a connection at times. Sag, who tends to be always on, can learn to sit and be quiet. Pisces is stirred, maybe been sitting too long and it’s time to reconsider. Sag has physical long vision; Pisces has Soul vision. They may agree on the goal but have very different ways of getting there.

Sagittarius squares Virgo. Sag plays, the Virgo North Node works. Sagittarius may help Virgo lift up their head and refocus with the new information received. They are flexible when shown why it’s better. Sagittarius may gloss over necessary details that Virgo points out, and together they sort it out. Immediate necessities in order for long term growth to go smoothly and sooner!

Three Midpoints, two with Mars!

  1. Pluto at semisextile midpoint between Saturn and Mars in Aquarius. Semisextiles are sign to sign, potent, no step missing. They are neighbors, so they know each other well. This set is Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius. Sag has the fiery spirited traveler, Capricorn is the professional, a clever careful mountain goat, Aquarius is the heavens above, a stellar community of Lights! Pluto with Saturn is a cleansing of the stones in our mind, kinda like the ‘between a rock and a hard place.’ Some of what we believe needs restoration, some needs blasting away. Pluto with Mars in Aquarius directs the blasting, reunites fragments to a new structure that works so much better. Pluto in Capricorn gathers the elders; Mars in Aquarius gathers the ChangeMaker evolutionists and leads the charge!
  2. Saturn is sextile midpoint between Jupiter and Mars, both planets approaching Saturn. Jupiter and Saturn are traveling closely, but don’t make their exact aspect until Aug 27, 2017! Jupiter in Libra keeps introducing new people to Saturn, rebalancing long held opinions, encouraging sharing and reforming. See more Mars in Aquarius with Saturn brings new tools to the front. Instead of one working, a whole crew of people bring brilliant expertise, put up new structures quickly, move on to the next! The beauty is you can SEE the change and know it can be done. There may need be some tweaking, but, hey, done! Experiment working!
  3. Pluto and Venus are at the T Square point between Jupiter in its opposition with Uranus! Jupiter made its first square to Pluto only 5 days ago on ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24th! This was the first aspect following the Presidential elections and people have been adjusting to our new President-elect Donald J Trump. Human rights – Jupiter in Libra, financial and health concerns – Pluto in Capricorn top the list. Jupiter will oppose Uranus exactly the first time Dec 26 just after Christmas. Oppositions often separate. Many friends have become estranged after this complex election, with such extremes of vehement opinions. Yet others are staying steady to see how things can be worked out, to find ways to make alliances so differences become assets, to preserve previous gains. There will be some ground sadly lost. Much will be learned about how to explain why something is true, what can be done to negotiate, how to show the value of a different way.

Uranus is key! It’s the outer planet getting the most action.

  1. Saturn squares Chiron, trines Uranus. Dec 24 the trine comes first. Dec 28 is the Chiron square. The square disrupts relationships, businesses, healing processes. There are blocks and breakthroughs. Some will dig in, fearfully holding on. Some systems will crumble from the weight of age and time, allowing us to see new light. The Uranian trine will bring new friends and greater community – seek it, don’t wait. Having this support will help us get through some of the uncomfortable things we must surrender to and work at to have the changes we want for long term. See more
  2. Venus in Capricorn sextiles Chiron, squares Uranus! 20-20-20 Degrees! Sextile Chiron can mean a marriage, successful business, a healing! If a marriage is in the offing, please see your astrologer to see if your chart has good timing. Venus in Cap is realistic, but wants beauty also. Could be the grace of age, lovely stone or glass work, a business that does kind works for our community or guards our Earth. Square Uranus in Aries is a challenge to say the least! Capricorn can be conservative, and Venus there would pride herself in honoring her elders. Uranus is the inventor, disrupts the status quo and can prove the new thing works. Aries is impatient with people who marry jobs or lovers for money or are slow old fogeys that have forgotten they were young once too! If they trample, they may miss the possible support they could gain from staunch citizens that could back their every step. This is a time not to judge a book by its cover! Take a deep breath, calm down, and thank them for the invitation! If the wrong people are forever holding you back, time for a change. Surprising new friendships can be formed if you look about. They have been waiting for you.
  3. Jupiter in Libra is opposite Uranus Dec 26, day after Christmas! Jupiter is reactivating the Uranus square Pluto that has been with us since 2010. See more In Aries, the stellar dust is in a hot Uranian whirlwind! Libra is interested in polar differences. Jupiter asks questions, sometimes blunt and embarrassing. Libra loves politics and competition, Jupiter loves races! Uranus loves in-your-face differences, shocking wakeups, and Aries gets up early, ready to fight for the underdog and freedom! Spread your wings wide, soar high to see the lay of the land, where to best put your energy. There will be lots of change, some surprising outcomes!

You see, it’s a complicated multilayered New Moon! Totally enriching!

Full Long Night Moon! Two T Squares, Mercury with Pluto, Sun sextile Mars!

Tuesday December 13, 4:05 PM Pacific, at 22 Gemini 26

Sagittarius Full Long Night Moon Giraffe Tasting the Moon by Nirvana.K

What the moon tastes like? Sweet Giraffe Art Print by Nirvana.K

Full Moon Gemini – Sagittarius. Good thing it is a Long Night Moon, ’cause these two will chat all night! Gemini has gathered so many tidbits of information, and shares in volumes. Sagittarius has so many stories of its travels it would take a lifetime to tell them all. Anyone listening would be dizzy with the range of exchange, impossible to repeat it all! The Word is out, and the Path becomes more focused as the meaning of the collection starts to shape itself. There is recognition of an underlying trend of the times, the purpose is shifting and the focal point being adapted. It may seem slippery with so many layers, no solid ground, but getting down may be where it’s at! Sometimes it’s just downright fun to not know a thing, let it rip with no end in sight!

Full Moon air and fire oppositions can scatter the leaves to the Four Directions, diffusion is glorious and far reaching. There is expansion, a wider range of contemplation of possibilities and growth. New people pull us into a bigger space, markets expand. It’s all the amazing words on the breezes tickling your Soul, and what they mean and where you want to go with them – importantly, your life work.

Sun leaving Saturn trine Uranus/square Chiron, to sextile Mars! That’s a hefty mix! A brief T Square was made to Chiron. Sun leaving Saturn was a serious affair for about a week and a half. It’s a once a year aspect. Sun adds Light to Saturn. Saturn may be warmed or discouraged, feel praised or all its weakness shown. There can be a lot done proudly, or sadness/depression. One way or the other, there is a reality assessment. Part of the question is what can I do, personally?

  • Saturn trines Uranus exactly the first time in only nine days, Christmas Eve, Dec 24. Saturn squares Chiron the first time exactly four days later Dec 28. Sun just did those aspects, so will carry the energy forward into the sextile with Mars! The Sun trine Uranus is Light on Light, Star to Star! Sun is our Star Light Being; Uranus is ALL the stars, the Lights of Heaven! Sagittarius is the Light of the coals the nomad traveler carried from camp to camp, symbolizing knowledge shared, enLightenment. Uranus is in Aries, in this case, the heavenly candle flame, the Light of each one of our Spirits awakened.
  • Saturn’s square to Chiron is a type of challenge we have about every 7+ years. The old wounds are never left to lie. We get 7 years worth of healing at a time. Though often uncomfortable, it’s important not to miss taking a look. At this time, Sun has leant his Light to see the opening of the door to the next level of healing. Chiron is now in Pisces, matters of the Soul, a psychic hurt, being abandoned or denied, a misunderstanding, an illusion, an unfulfilled dream we carry deep within us – a seeming shameful failure. Sun has made us feel a bit naked in recent days with his light just where we can be the most afraid to look. With Saturn in Sagittarius there is a call to hope, to stop abandoning ourselves! Saturn says you can do it, a step at a time. Be real. You did the best you could at the time. Sun is leading now. He/we saw and we actually can feel better, more of our cards on the table.
  • Sun sextile Mars can be that first step we take! Mars in Aquarius gives an air sign lift, a literal step up! Sagittarius is all for that, they love to jump on things, get a leg up! With Aquarius it may all be a bit crazy! Relief! Sun has got a great big grin on and laughs heartily so everyone can hear and they smile or laugh too! Sports are going to be fun, and some wagers made. See about a new gym membership. Food will be saucy and spicy!
  • Moon backs up Sun, trines Mars. She has the words, the local connections, the feminine side of things to be shared. Her instincts back up the Aquarian intelligence, the quick spirited Mars. In logical air sign, multi visual Gemini, she is less fearful, more quick to respond herself! Oddly she may Mother Mars. In Aquarius he often goes it alone, way out ahead, so may need a little respite. Though they get along, Gemini is forever in motion, and Mars in Aquarius soon sees another challenging front to lead. Moon won’t forget him though, and may continue to support him in her blogs. It’s a new time. He is offering new solutions.
  • Jupiter is less than 1 degree of the sextile with Saturn, but retrogrades just before the exact contact! The influence is there, keep expanding, new relationship are put into play, but the consummation isn’t complete until Aug 27. See more
Venus was with Pluto at the New Moon. Now it is Mercury at the Full Moon! Mercury conjunct Pluto in Capricorn instigates a T Square with Jupiter opposition Uranus! Mercury relinks the Jupiter square Pluto making us remember, putting more words to what happened after the elections, and ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24. It keeps important considerations, resolutions, in mind. The second Jupiter/Pluto is March 30, the third is Aug 4. Mercury with Pluto we are likely to be a tad obsessively thoughtful. Can’t put the good book down. Deeply curious, to discovery or detriment! Words are whispered, backdoor deals made, not everything confirmed. Be cautious of gossip. Be clear but not hurtful if possible. Think of what the consequences of a mislaid sentence might be. Be healing and helpful. Don’t deny what’s real before or behind you. Biding your time might be the wise choice. There can be news of a loss of someone special to us. We might get news of a new cure, or an investment tip. It can be a simple piece of information that makes a huge difference in our life.
  • Mercury square Jupiter echos the Gemini/Sagittarius Full Moon signs. Mercury is Gemini’s planet; Jupiter is Sagittarius’ planet! Where the Full Moon opposition separates, widens the territory, Mercury in Capricorn square, Jupiter challenges the efficacy of the proposal. With Jupiter in Libra, Mercury challenges the people authorized to make decisions. There may be conservative and cultural differences at stake. Mercury in Cap brings facts to the table, but if people just like the good looks, the smile, of the Jupiter Libra reps, a decision may unreasonably swing to their side. Jupiter may exaggerate, and Mercury could bring them down due to lack of credibility. Go easy. In personal or family matters, remember this is NOT a court of law. If you are going to court be careful how you present.
  • Mercury and Pluto square Uranus. Mercury is still 8 degrees away, but Pluto carries the energy forward and is only 4 degrees of Uranus. The main factor is the unpredictability of Uranus in Aries. But always know it is looking for what’s new, especially in Aries, and what is better for the greater good. You may be right, but times are changing as we get more globally educated and connected. In the future, more decisions will be made with the greater good in mind. For example, the Standing Rock situation is not just about tribal territory land rights, but about protecting our water. That affects a lot more land than the reservation.

Venus in Aquarius shimmers in her starry sparkly gown, smiling semisextile to Neptune of the magical night. He is enchanting, she is beguiling, the sweetest thing he’s seen in a long time. She is off to another party; he sailing on the tide. She is a breath of fresh air, the wind fills his sails as he hums in the moonlight. She brings friends to visit, each one unique, stirring his rustling Spirit. He feels wealthy in his Soul for meeting them all. None of them might ever see each other again.

This is the Long Night Moon. Reach for it. Stand tall. Stretch and grow. Taste the Moon.

May your Circle be Unbroken.

Jupiter Sextile Saturn opens many doors, gateways, thresholds....

A time of many thresholds….

Jupiter came within a 5 degree range of Saturn Oct 15, the very day of the Aries/Libra Full Moon! Many astrologers allow that range. Others, due to this aspect being a sextile only allow a 3 degree range. But if you feel it, even before the 5 degrees, it’s active for you! The three degree range starts Nov 2. This aspect is important because though it doesn’t become exact until Aug 27, and then only once, it is continuously close from now until March 6 when Jupiter retrogrades out of the 5 degree range. They don’t get that close again until July 29 through when it’s exact Aug 27. They are quite close 3 1/2 months then another month, so a total of 4 1/2 months they travel closely together in the background. It lasts so long because Jupiter retrogrades Feb 5, 2017, moving very slowly. Their closest connection before Aug 27 was a 2 day period when Jupiter was at 12.5 minutes of Saturn, very less than a degree December 28 (NEW MOON) and 29! That was just after Saturn trined Uranus December 24, Christmas Eve, and Jupiter opposes Uranus December 26! Please see the Holiday Four!

Jupiter may come knocking at your door, take you on a useful journey, opening many more doors, of all kinds, right and left! Saturn is the King of Thresholds, and is an adept keymaker! And when needed, a great locksmith, guardian of the goods!

Jupiter in Libra may increase Saturn’s workload, much to Saturn’s happiness! Successful building, artistic renovation can change the demeanor of an entire neighborhood, up property values. Saturn may be inspired by Jupiter’s far reaching ideas and open a new branch. Business may increase through new partnerships. There may be some sad moments as Saturn realizes what they missed, what has held them back. Knowing they don’t need to do that anymore is a great relief. Forgiveness may be given for mistaken thinking as the truth comes out. Time for healing. Health may get better with age, and respect and recognition given for long term well done work. Jupiter sees the benefits of Saturn’s bedrock solidarity.

Saturn offers Jupiter the consideration of right timing, being able to wait to right action. Jupiter is the valiant hero, but Saturn shows it is sometimes so better to let another have the spotlight and cheer them on! Just because you can, or even because you can do it better, isn’t always the reason to do it! Jupiter is full of vim and vigor, but again, restraint and focus pay off as you do what you do best and do your own appropriate responsibilities. Spreading too thin sometimes depletes our energy. Showing timely accomplishment, dedication, rather than running off for fun, is a good teaching. Doesn’t mean you can’t run off later!!! Or take your career on the road! Saturn has the wisdom of proven experience. At times the smallest achievement is profound.

Fatherhood, mentoring, being a Grandpa to child and grandchild, coaching from sports, career, to life, may take on special meaning. Discovery of new teaching principles may open doors of precious fulfillment! Both teacher as well as recipient will be delighted by their mutual revelations!

Spiritual teachings could be the basis for a turn in your Path. It could come in casual conversation, a scene that comes before you and the Lights go on! Church may call you, or you may be called to go on a Mission – Peace Corps to environmental. It may be a special person that inspires you, or you do the same skills but for a company that serves the world or makes health better for humans or animals.

Students, this is a time you can make good headway. It’s a good combination for both work and play. Take courses taught by Beings you respect and admire for the results of their ways, who inspire you, that make you proud that you have learned so much. It may be a way of life more than the things you have learned, how to live rather than what you live, that is most important. Whether one special thing or many, be grateful for the lifeway given that will carry you forward.

Your Dharma, your mission this life may become joyfully apparent, finally, and a profound step taken in its direction. Might go back to school, a specialty school! You have until the end of next August with this aspect! Make it count!
