Venus Mercury Retrograde Zion Angel's Landing Walters Wiggles

Switchbacks at Utah’s Zion National Park, Angel’s Landing, Walter’s Wiggles! If we are going to do two retrogrades in a row, and overlapping – both at once for a week, whether descending or ascending, we might as well do it elegantly in great Beauty!

March 20 Note: Venus has been retrograde since March 4. Mercury starts Rx during Aries, April 9. Venus goes direct April 15. The DOUBLE RX is April 9 to 15!

For your advance planning ~~~ trips, moves, weddings, significant purchases, remodels, elective surgeries, investments, taxes, job changes or reviews. Venus involves your love life, money and values, art and beauty. Mercury typically has to do with signing papers, snafus of all sorts, appointments, mind changes, reversals, breakdowns, electronic failures. Retrogrades have three parts. First is the time the planet goes forward. Next is the retrograde period when it goes back over that same ground. Third is when it turns Direct, forward, and goes over the same ground the third time. Often, having a change of direction, extra work to accommodate the changes, delays, drives us crazy. Given time, from the different vantage points, and as other planets move along, we see the values in these adjustments. Without switchbacks or retrogrades, sometimes we might never reach higher ground had these events not have happened. New vantage points show us how to incorporate new facets in our lives.

Venus Retrograde

Venus sweetens from 13 Aries 8 back to 28 Pisces 54! The whole three part cycle starts Jan 30, finishes May 18 with Venus Rx Mar 4 to 15.

Venus does make beauty and kindness, money and love. Retrogrades make changes, omits, misunderstandings, mistakes, adjustments.

Venus in Pisces dreams, commiserates and blesses, is music, magic and miracles, lives for the beauty of Soul. Your understandings, beliefs and desires will shift, can even take 180 different positions and return back to your original position even wiser! The idea is to flow with the tide, rise and fall with the swells of life. Be as whole as you can, make Magic as your insights and visions carry you forward. Pisces can be a gentle sign, or the deluge of a tsunami! If things come too fast it could be scary confusion, feeling lost. Lay back on sugar and carbs. Avoid overindulging in social drugs, alcohol; arrange to have a trusted friend to see you safely home. Water sports and businesses, especially related to the ocean, can make significant changes, select new teachers.

Venus in Aries wants what it wants, now, and takes the action needed to get it! They love being first, prize being leaders, are quick super athletes, are great dancers, put in stunning performances! During the Rx you may find your style changing as to how you do these things! The warning is not to overdo it, be careful not to hurt your head or eyes. Sweet hot sex if you’re lucky! But have that sex with your established partner. Many don’t recommend first time sex during Venus Rxs. There is a quality of rebellion and you could get in trouble with dares. You may not get away with it this time, so please be careful, and try not to break the law in front of the officer!

Aries is often impetuous, but most astrologers would not pick anytime during Venus (love and marriage) Retrograde to get married, elope. Only if the compatibility charts were exceptional, both parties have exceptional progression and transit aspects at that time, and the marriage chart is chosen for the best aspects it can have that also are in splendid harmony with both birth charts. Otherwise, some unions are karmic and will be as they are.

Mercury Double Retrograde!

DURING Venus Retrograde, Mercury starts its Rx cycle, and part of its Retrograde time is during the Venus Rx time! So we have a double Rx April 9 to 15! This is a wee bit of a complicated time with two overlapping cycles and Venus and Mercury each changing signs as well. Mercury will move through 24 Aries 15 to 4 Taurus 50. Mercury is Rx April 9 to May 3.  It makes sense to see your astrologer for details about how this activates your personal chart.

At the time of the double Rx, Venus will be in Pisces, Mercury in Taurus. The degrees are not close, so they will be operating independently of each other. That means in two different houses of your personal chart, possibly even four houses, will be activated. They may act together for you depending on the personal linkage of your planets.

Mercury in Aries is quick to see what’s happening, often distracted, maybe jumps to conclusions, or it’s all in your head. Its speed can save lives, tilt the world in a new direction, blitz by old hurdles! It can be impatient, angry, get down to head butting! Get going or get outta my way, but mainly it just wants to do things! It is a leader that inspires confidence! New projects may finally be undertaken, or fail because they are ahead of their time, there are more considerations than realized. Plant your seeds then plant more seeds! Caution signing papers, even if an expert advises it. This is likely not the time to be impetuous. If you are never impetuous, maybe you should give it a try! Do your best.

In Aries it is very likely not the time to do electional face surgery, elope, buy a new car or mechanical items. If you can wait, fix the furnace or air conditioner later. Be careful about head bumps, your brain/skull, eyes. Put in fire alarms well before the retrograde.

Mercury in Taurus takes its time, maybe too much time, but is the most stable of these four combinations. Sometimes it resists change and is thrown off by shifts in routine. Yet, if Taurus has become tired without realizing, changes may be just what the Dr ordered! Your land may change, your garden, your flowers, trees – earthy things. Taurus is your neck, throat and thyroid. If there are any questions, have a checkup in advance, especially if singing or entertainment is important to you. In general, Taurus is ownership and a solid untouchable bank account, but what we want may surprisingly change during this Rx. A generous gift may be expected and you might have a dilemma about what, how much, or whether to give.

If you make investments, do only test amounts during both retrogrades because Venus (money) is Taurus’s planet. Your thinking about what is attractive can easily change. Not a time to buy a new wardrobe, furnish your home, do a remodel or buy a comfortable car. Whatever you buy, get receipts, buy from well standing companies with excellent return policies, get the warranty. If you sign papers include a review clause so it can be changed, canceled or extended within a reasonable time. You set the time for your next job review time.

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!

Overview of 2017 Planetary Backdrop 

2017 opens with three outer planets in Cardinal signs: Jupiter in Libra, Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn. Cardinal signs initiate. Aries is the spark, a leader. Libra, his opposite, invites, greets and makes introductions. Capricorn instinctively builds the shelter, protects the gathering. Together, we are inspired, form lasting unions. Saturn and Neptune remain in Mutable signs Sagittarius and Pisces. Flexibility brings Grace. Things are not so hard and fast. Systems will change, be more accommodating, yet there is no compromising what’s Sacred. It seems at times there is no direction, but somehow everyone arrives at the same time! Saturn and Neptune, Dharma and Spirit, blend and bind us meaningfully, with every fiber, to a greater purpose, more significantly than of any one of us alone.

The long time Uranus square Pluto is finally finishing! It started its first of seven exact aspects in 2010! It is in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17 and doesn’t go back! See more

The six aspects that started Oct 23, 2016, repeat twice and continue through Nov 11, 2017. The challenging aspects run through Nov 2. Of 14 2017 aspects, 4 are considered favorable. The aspects span from 11 degrees to 27 degrees, so likely all of us will be activated one time or another. Jupiter, the fastest of the outer planets, makes 10 of these 14 aspects; Saturn makes the other 4. Continue to make sustainable living choices. Be ready and flexible for lots of changes.

Many are waiting, getting poised for the phenomenal 2018 sweep of positive aspects! There are way fewer aspects! It has 6 favorable, only 1 difficult at the end of the year. Jupiter is making ALL the aspects! There are a LOT of sign changes, FIVE! That will more than stir the brew! Don’t expect things to be settled, but the changes bode well, new times! Live closely now so you are free to invest in 2018.

Sign Changes

Sign changes set the tone of and standards for the year. The first sign makes a secure platform for the next sign’s success. For example, Libra establishes fitting relationships, connections, for Scorpio works to be deepened. Sagittarius learns everything it can to get the Capricorn job/career, to make a significant Capricorn achievement.

For most of the year, until October, Jupiter and Saturn are in Libra and Sagittarius, outgoing and curious. Then Jupiter goes into Scorpio and it can get a little obsessed, ventures easily going on into the night, Scorpio’s favorite time. After we get used to this change of venue, Saturn finally makes his change into his own sign Capricorn! No more fun and games, it’s time to get down to business. Less socializing, things to get done, and they do get done! May be an inch at a time, but they are determined. Each step begets another. And it multiplies and goes faster as we get used to it!

Jupiter and Saturn change Signs. Jupiter starts in Libra. See Jupiter into LIBRA! Libras work for successful and elegant relationships, professional liaisons, powerful representation. Jupiter loves to learn and travel, and Libra loves art and culture. Very syncopatic combination! October 10, Jupiter enters Scorpio and goes underground, scouts behind the scenes, checks the financial infrastructure, funding, wonders if you truly love them, seeks the meaning of life and death! There comes a healing collaboration with a meaningful purpose. There is less time for simple sociality, some relationships will be left behind, others renewed and rededicated.

Jupiter makes 4 aspects, and Saturn makes 2 aspects, that started late 2016, open 2017 and finish 11.11.17. Eleven, eleven! The most dramatic of the Jupiter set is Jupiter opposition Uranus that finishes the Jupiter set Sep 27. The Saturn pair finish with Saturn trining Uranus, both sets finishing with an aspect to Uranus, making Uranus the key planet!  Saturn’s 11.11.17 last trine with Uranus is the first aspect of a year long series of 2017-18 positive aspects beginning Nov 11! Uranus is the planet of Evolution, Stars, Space. Friendship alliances help us make change, find freedom. We can be the different specialist person we were born to be! Conversely, sometimes being alone helps us clear our mind, uninfluenced we find our unique path.

After these two with Uranus, Saturn changes Sign Dec 19 from Sagittarius to joining Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s own sign! Capricorn and Scorpio, Jupiter’s new sign, get along. In fact, the combination is another way of saying Pluto in Capricorn! Pluto is Scorpio’s planet! Capricorn is the last Earth sign. It’s majestic mountains jut up into the sky, magnificent views inspire our quests. Winter Solstice Capricorn builds strong because it knows just how much weather it could need to withstand. It emphasizes necessities, knows the realities, wastes no time. The work of the Soul takes top priority.


A look at 2017 Aspects of Note, Planetary Patterns!

Planet Patterns Transits

2017 opens the day after the Dec 31, 2016 Jupiter inconjunct Chiron. They will stay close until the second exact aspect Feb 4 2017. The 2016 Oct to Dec Jupiter set – inconjunct Neptune, square Pluto, opposite Uranus and inconjunct Chiron – will reverse through these 4 aspects through mid May holding the Jupiter inconjunct Neptune closely until July 4! It finishes the set entirely wildly Sep 27 opposite Uranus! The retrograde/direct turning points, adjustment making inconjuncts with Chiron and Neptune, are important because of the duration they are held and that they are turning points. Major aspect Jupiter opposite Uranus is super charged, expect bold changes! Jupiter square Pluto was the prominent Presidential Election aspect and holds the keys to the financial kingdom!

Jupiter square Pluto and opposition Uranus, makes a framework for several provocative Cardinal T Squares and a Grand Cross as Moon, Sun, Mercury or Venus move through Aries. The Feb 26th 22 degree Mars exact conjunction Uranus, plus they opposite Jupiter should be spectacular to say the least! Make sure your insurance is up to date and comprehensive, covers fire/heat and electronics/electricity – wiring, explosions. Earlier in the day of the April 10 Aries/Libra FULL MOON, the Moon and Sun straddle the Jupiter opposition Uranus axis! Extraordinary proportions and options!

Saturn squares Chiron, trines Uranus. Careers and businesses will be challenged, breakthroughs possible. Times change. Those who are innovative for the greater good, and work in harmony with friends and community, will prosper. The May 18 second and Nov 11 last trine to Uranus will occur at the degree of the Galactic Center! The square and trines were only 4 days apart, finishing aspects at Christmas 2016, and make their third and last aspects quite closely again Nov 2 and 11, 2017. That Nov 11 aspect launches a year of uninterrupted classically favorable aspects!

Uranus and Chiron will be aspected 4 times each. Healing change. Businesses will be called to be more inclusive of all beings, broadened by their new connections.

The last aspect of 2017 is Jupiter trine Neptune Dec 2! Let the magical journey begin! Saturn changes signs, into it’s own sober and mighty productive sign Capricorn Dec 19, just before Winter Solstice! Some say Solstice is the true New Year.

Uranus square Pluto is in its LAST 5 degree period of that square! It is in a 5 degree or less closeness 11.29.16 to 4.13.17, Uranus then leaving Pluto behind.
 
In the background, Chiron semi-sextile Uranus has been in a continuous 3 degree underlying pattern since Nov 2008, continues through 2021, 13 years! The exact 2017 dates are July 29 and Dec 28.

Be well, well loved, may you prosper, and all your good works be blessed….

Saturn in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries - World Friendships!

Unique friendships across the world…

March 2017 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 aspect #3 below.

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 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 Capricorn, Three in Pisces! Midpoints, Two T Squares!

Wednesday Dec 28, 10:53 PM Pacific at 7 Capricorn 59, the last one of 2016!

Capricorn 2016 New Moon Teton Milky Way Royce Bair

Grand Teton Range, Milky Way, Standing Tree People by amazing photographer Royce Bair

This is our last Moon of 2016, and potent it is! It ends one cycle, begins anew as our year ends and another is immanent. It has two planetary groupings – Capricorn and Pisces, and is nested in the four major aspects ending 2016 that are in only an eight day timeframe on the very day of Saturn square Chiron!

Four planets in Capricorn celebrate our achievements! The New Moon merger of Mother Moon with Father Sun are in the sign of Father Capricorn. This time of year we need Mother Moon’s nurturing at a time she’s really busy and maybe a bit tired. Know she loves you. Take some time out together. Our heavenly Feminine and Masculine forces are united. Practice that unity. Moon is there to nurture and comfort. Sun lights the way. Though days are short for the time being, he is a stalwart champion through many a dark hour.

Mercury at 6° is right with the New Moon at 7°! In Capricorn it calls for respect, long term commitment, a pledge to work honorably for meaningful goals, to hold honor. Paying attention is a prized skill, so potent moments are noted, synthesized, stabilized for continued use. Stillness, a pause, is like frozen magic! It lets us see, hear, in a profound way, to know the true abiding values that take us forward through time. Sign the papers.

Pluto, in Capricorn since 2008, now midway through Capricorn, has cleared many personal faults, changed our economic and political stances, opened doors to many new careers, taken a lot of new looks at parenting and aging. Planetary temperature shifts have brought new thought about agriculture, construction and sustainability. There is a mixture of fate and futility with gathering facts, doing research, and steadily working to turn things around, adopt new potentials!

Three planets in Pisces! From Capricorn Unicorns to SeaGoats to Mermaids this is a magical New Moon!! Mercury Moon and Sun sextile Mars and the Pisces planet Neptune! A five planet earth and water sextile! You can see the ocean from the mystical heights of Capricorn! The mountains guide Piscean sailors along the beautiful coast. Mars in Pisces can be still as a mirror at sea, swoons with waves, rocks in the cradle. Other times he roars, tsunamis to shore, pounding the rocks into grains of sand! He is enchanted by Neptune’s insights as he slithers like a seal through the seaweed, surfs like a dolphin, breaches like a whale! The ocean is like a giant prism, with glimpses of tiny creatures in dappled sunlight slanting down or gliding, guiding up like through a cathedral.

Ah, did I get carried away? Just wanted you to feel it as it lives. Mar in Pisces with Neptune. Pisces is so all seamlessly encompassing we really can feel that all are one. The ocean is a salty cleaning machine. It is mystical on a foggy night. We can sit in the temple so still we hear our breath and heartbeat, feel our life’s pulse. It is humbling to be a part of all Souls. We see what needs doing. Capricorn is the last of the Earth signs, the ultimate pragmatist. Mars will lean his shoulder to the timber of Capricorn’s project, guiding it with his very body to intuitively place it exactly as needed. Miracles really happen and dreams do come true. The high five is a salutation of gratitude.

The Holiday Four

  1. This New Moon follows the Christmas Eve Saturn trine Uranus. They are still quite close by numbers and actively integrating new alignments! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet and Uranus is the planet of the next sign Aquarius. Trines are considered to be the best linkage between planets. Saturn and Uranus are so opposite they often aren’t friends. Saturn is perhaps the most conservative of all the signs. Uranus has no such constraints, cares for no party in particular and doesn’t care what YOU think. Yet scientific Capricorn is likely to be one of the first who supports Aquarian inventions, and sees the value of Aquarian community goals, the internet, and certain philanthropies. Change can become fact.
  2. Jupiter was opposite Uranus only two days before on the 26th! Another major aspect still active! Jupiter in Libra is quite lively lining up the Souls either to oppose you or shake hands across the table! Uranus in Aries couldn’t be more independent spirited, but also is the leader of reform groups or instigators of united efforts of several groups together! Jupiter in Libra pulls in law and justice, speaks widely socially, compares peoples and times anthropologically. The gap may be huge, but so is the reach across the chasm! Mergers for solidarity make sense.
  3. On this very day of our New Moon, Saturn Squares Chiron at 3:06 PM Pacific. There may be, or have been, losses or perceived potential losses of love, life, money, career, health. This aspect has been close for some time, so we already have inklings what needs attention, propping up, to be let go of, worked for. Each thing you take care of is a step, something you won’t need to deal with later. Keep focus on your priorities. Maybe get  plans on your calendar. Saturn in Sagittarius can see a worthy future worth the work. Do it!
  4. The last aspect of 2016! The remaining aspect the what I’m calling the Holiday Four is Jupiter inconjunct Chiron the 31st!  An inconjunct is often a stretch, an off balance reach to the side. It is seductive to those who are curious. It may take you off track, yet give you vital information. You may decide to keep on going on that new road! Jupiter in Libra has met many on their travels, some even intriguing to Chiron, an old Master, in Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac, not impressed by much. Jupiter, however, ups the ante, smart in Libra, thinks of combinations that change the pace! And likely the place too! Social venues are adjusted, financial options are altered, health is adapted to new circumstances. Stay calm, eyes open, flexible. Check with experts, take your time when you can.

See more about the Holiday Four! Are all big aspects, outer planet to outer planet. It is unusual to have 4 of them happen so closely in time, the 24th, 26, 28 & 31st!

Give yourself credit for all you have achieved in 2016! Thank you for every step you have taken.

Full Wolf Moon! – Grand Cardinal Square, 4 Planets in Pisces 4 at 22°!

Thursday January 12, 3:34 AM Pacific, at 22 Cancer 27 

Capricorn, First Full Moon of 2017, Wolf

And we’re off! The first Moon of 2017! Another Capricorn – Pisces time of miracles and magic!

Moon is in her own sign Cancer, tender but strong. She births. She tenderly cares for loved ones and finds ways to feed the multitudes. It is an honor to be her mate. Father Sun is ultimate Father in Capricorn, Father Time. He builds the shelter, protects, works, teaches responsibilities and a moral code.

Full Moons are of opposite signs, major differences, yet as dynamic contributors to a mutual cause, they can work together. Cancer is known for its sensitive emotionalism. It is a bell bellwether to the possibility of upcoming trouble. Capricorn has less sympathy, is more a get it done type, especially in challenging times. Each helps the other. Cancer helps guide through what can be illogical. Capricorn takes charge and gives great hope through its efforts, the smallest steps meaningful. Five days previously, Sun made his annual conjunction with Pluto. The five days previous to that conjunction, Sun intensely considered financial matters, the state of relationships, matters of life, death and healing.

Grand Cardinal Square! Our Full Moon is crossed by Jupiter opposite Uranus spanning Aries to Libra! Aries is fiery Spirit leader; Uranus is an air planet, the Awakener and ChangeMaker! This combination can be sudden, a bit shocking, intriguing, here and gone in a flash, to pop up unexpectedly quickly somewhere else! Jupiter in Libra is fascinated, doesn’t mind the trip, meets these extraordinary Beings along life’s Path. Aries is willing to fight for it, while Libra can be the lawyer, seeking peaceful resolution, but will do what it takes if their back is against the wall. Be cautious of exaggerations, but step up to the plate if it appears to be well founded and you are needed.

Our Cancer Moon might rather stay at home, but if home, or women and children are the issue, it will stand up too. They will take food to the marchers, blankets to the homeless. Capricorn prefers law and order, so has pals at the courthouse and in the police force, but here again, if people are in dire need, they will build those emergency shelters. Having had their own hard times, they have empathy, will teach others how to care for themselves. It’s good for our staunch Cancers and Cappies to meet new people, make extended liaisons community wide, be more informed. It can be a little scary when the new ones are dressed differently, their demeanors are fierce or they appear quickly. It may take awhile to adjust. At times Cancers or Caps may appear slow, but not so, they are taking it in, thoughtfully processing. It’s safer at times to slow things down. All four signs have special things to offer and to integrate can mean a more comprehensive solution!

Three of the Grand Square planets are at 22°, plus Saturn! Chiron is at 21 Pisces, and Uranus is at 20 Aries. That’s a tight pack of six planets! Jupiter inconjuncts Chiron Dec 31, 2016, the last aspect of 2016. Jupiter upps the amps on Chiron’s attention, bringing new insights on how to balance all types of systems in our bodies, minds and Spirit. New types of relationships are offered extending our network beyond what we thought possible! This aspect stays alive while Mars conjuncts Chiron Jan 16, then inconjuncts Jupiter Jan 17.Saturn trines Uranus Christmas Eve, Dec 24th. Working friendships have been a blessing. Support has come from surprising places. Keep these connections alive and well. Saturn is same degree sextile Jupiter, very, very close Dec 28 and 29, yet doesn’t make the exact aspect until Aug 27! This is a great planning aspect, and it’s a pleasure to get things done! Saturn in Sagittarius squares Chiron Dec 28, has been taking its toll – many Souls taking the Long Journey. Grieving is still fresh for many. See the Holiday Four.

FOUR planets in Pisces, two pairings! Moon is leaving a trine with Mars and Chiron. Moon has leant her nurturing to further rouse Mars’ compassion in Pisces, Chiron’s dedication to teaching and healing. Mars left sextile Pluto on the 10th, steadied and productive by Pluto in Capricorn’s strength and focus. Mars conjuncts Chiron Jan 16. This will perhaps cause wounds to our feet or our Soul. But Mars also may also give new insights that quicken healing! Fevers or fighting, cuts or rashes, punctures, stings. If you are seaside or on a boat, in the spa or bathtub, be a tad cautious. You may be inspired to take up art, magic, a special new line of work may come involving teaching. A soulful relationship may come your way, especially with Venus conjunct Neptune in Pisces!

Venus and Neptune in Pisces make love and beauty. They can be comforting when your Soul is in danger. Self indulgence, addiction, is a danger if extreme, and holidays can bring up deep rooted family issues that need soothing. Be wise with your time. Know your limits, others’ limits. Be safe emotionally, stay away from hot topics, leave before regretful escalation, make visits brief. Eat right, be well rested. Take good care of yourself, be wise to getting support for yourself, make that call. Love may win, but sometimes it takes time, and you may not even be the one to bring changes to fruition. Teachers and healers know you can’t heal everyone every time. Often there is no failure at all. Turn your Spirit to creating music, going to sea, swimming, serving in kindness, spirituality. When you are up, support others in their time of need.

Venus conjuncts Neptune at 1:54 PM Pacific. That would be a gentile time to have a warmer daytime gathering, a Circle, to celebrate the Full Moon.

Mental transition! Mercury leaves Sagittarius, enters Capricorn at 6:04 AM Pacific, 2.5 hours after the Full Moon! While in Sagittarius, raise your eyes to see as far as you can see. Lift up your plans, expand your ideas. For some of us that will be pre Sunrise, for others of you it will be later on in the morning. You can be present for this shift. In Capricorn, our minds will twitch into gear and choices will be made how to expeditiously make those plans come true! Make notes, get goals down on your calendar!

Let your Wolf come out to play! Take a good bite of life in your New Year!

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.
