Virgos ~ Smart, Hardworking, Dedicated!

Virgo 4 Planets Robert B Parker Author Office

4 Planets in Virgo, Sun, Mercury, Neptune & Jupiter, Robert B Parker was a 10-page-a-day hardworking mystery novelist, 65 novels, died at his desk. He made his dog Pearl famous as one of his ‘characters.’ Married 53 years to Joan, read more about their unusual marriage.

Smart, hardworking, dedicated and Magical! As writers Virgos make music and magic of all kinds, a sublime symphony of life! They take us all over the world in our minds. Among the pages we meet people we would have never met, learn about things we didn’t even know existed. Creation was never more wonderful! Our imagination is stirred beyond casual limits. We develop a broader instinct and stronger expectations! As with many crafts, Authors, bloggers, ad makers, carefully hone their talents to a fine art! As I sat down to write this, I was given two books about the White Lions of South Africa! I’m ready for the adventure…the next time you see me, I won’t be exactly the same as when you saw me before.

Virgos are adored for their helpfulness and commonsense. Maybe one of the things they do is write a how-to that gets you there and back, saves so much time! Could be on nursing, weaving, pets, growing veggies, with lots of images and a video so you can really see how it’s done by a pro. They do have intricate mind crevices, that work through layer after layer, and leave bread crumb links as they go so others can follow! They are experiential. They learn by doing. They can feel the texture and know if the connections are smooth.

Health is a complex matter. Virgo are devoted to health and wellbeing. They counsel your attitude, question your motives. There is sometimes a long ago mystery in your life that needs resolving before progress can be made in real time. Virgos research important details about quality of food, actual nutrition, natural herbal cures, factors that chemically cancel each other out or block success. They consider many viewpoints to get to a comprehensive holistic solution. That’s work. They add in an exercise regime that makes you so happy you actually do it! And they arrange groups or friends to do it with, so your life is humming, well integrated socially. You feel fully alive and ready for life! They are super caregivers.

Daily life is compelling for your Virgo. Every moment they want the best, a well organized and effortless flow. Cleaning up, giving away unused stuff is natural. They likely have a polished presentation that is well worth your time. They are always upgrading with the latest information. Many of the good things they do we take for granted – landscaping, house cleaning, at the library, accounting, technical assistance. When things don’t work, your Virgo can readily fix them and save the day! They are succinct at explaining the matter, the cause, the best gear for the job, where to get it, how to do better, prevention of future troubles. They follow up and recommend when to check back. They appreciate any extra training offered, learn it well. Don’t hesitate to send them to the best schools. Don’t be surprised if they become the instructor!

Workaholic? Don’t do it. Do what you love. If you do what you love, you want to be able to do it with verve! You keep your own health better so you can! If you do work out of false obligation, you get more tired more quickly. Your decisions aren’t up to par. You get dull and dry spirited. Definitely bored, maybe chronically depressed. You float rather than engage. You might get downright grumpy. Time to stand back and get back on center. Let someone else who would love that work do it. They will do better than you ever would or could because it is in their Spirit to do it. You be happy somewhere else!

If a Virgo loves you, you know you deserve it and they really do love you. They can be picky. If they don’t find anyone to the quality of their standards, they will live alone. Not necessarily lonely, because there is always so much to do. But if you are interested, you may need to find a way to get their attention without annoying them. They can even be a bit intimidating because they are so knowledgeable and to them, whatever they are doing is important! It may take a few times to get through. A note might work to start…’I know you are quite busy. When will you have a few minutes to talk? I need to ask you a question.’ At that time, get right to the point. Would you like to go for coffee, tea? Take them up on the window they offer, even if it is brief. They will appreciate your respect of their time. If things go well, they will make more time for you.

Virgos are not famous for their passionate love life, yet it is the sign of the Virgin. Ahem. Fresh as a daisy might have been said about them. Keep it clean, pay attention to your Virgo’s intimate requests. Take them away from work, turn off the phones, hire a well qualified assistant to take care of  the pets, water the plants. Late morning to mid afternoon is good timing. Let them get plenty of rest and do your most special things before they get tired. Feed them what they want. Overnights and mini vacations might be a perfect start or a way of life together. If they start worrying about things at home or their job, it’s time to honor that and get back.

Remind these good dear Souls that they are good! They are susceptible to criticism and are their own worst critics. That’s part of why they are so good at their work. And, ironically their ability at criticism is also one of their best talents as well. They can be excellent editors, book critics, write amazingly insightful letters to the editor, scan the production line to make needed updates. They can be excellent appraisers, and make dead on assessments. It often just takes a glance. They see an array of classic factors, and sure enough, it is as they suspected. They can save you a lot of time and money.

Virgos are often at the sides of professionals like lawyers, organizing, researching. Models almost always have Virgo in their charts. That is the pure clean virginal sweet look they can have. It becomes innocent to buy the most sexy offering at the fashion show! Teachers, Leos, often have Virgo in their charts. They back up what they say with impressive stats and details, show their students how to do it for themselves. Virgos are pros at how-to demonstrations. Stars and CEOs often have Virgo personal assistants. Stars and CEOS have a lot on their plates and need the best care because of the intensity of their work. It is taxing. They need help right down to having someone be sure you get a good meal and make sure you get to your appointments. Sometimes the assistant is brighter than the employer…but the assistant is smart to pick an employer with something extra special about them! When you interview a Virgo, you are being interviewed as well!

You Virgos are invaluable. We just couldn’t do it without you.

Virgo 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Astronomy 9.10.18 Young Moon Crescent

VERY Young Moon (barely visible crescent) Sep 10/11! 

For some sky watchers, it’s great sport to try to catch a young moon that may – or may not – fleetingly show itself as a pale, skinny crescent in the western evening twilight. The chances of catching the young moon after sunset on September 10, 2018, vary greatly around the globe. South America is especially favored. It’s usually quite difficult to see any moon that’s less than one day (24 hours) old, and nearly impossible to spot any moon that’s less than 3/4th of a day (18 hours) old. Of course, it’s to your advantage to have binoculars handy and an unobstructed horizon in the direction of sunset, and a very clear sky, for seeking the young moon. Good luck! (Thank you Bruce McClure at EarthSky)

Virgo 2018 Timeline! 

2018 Virgo! Get out your calculators! If the Sep 11 & 12 aspects, on an increasing Moon, connect well with your chart, they could bring you some great results! (SEE your astrologer for your personal timing!)

August
22 Happy Virgo!
26 Full Moon
27 Mars forward out of Retrograde!

September
3 Labor Day
9 New Moon
10 Mars Aquarius
11 Sun sextile Jupiter, trine Pluto
12 JUPITER’s last SEXTILE PLUTO!!!
25 Chiron in Aries retrogrades back into Pisces

October 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Virgo’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde back into their previous signs, and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Chiron shifted from Pisces to Aries April 17. Less than a month later, Uranus shifted from Aries to Taurus May 15! Late in 2018 Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8.

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

RETROGRADES emphasis! As of May 12, we started into the Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde sequence. See the Timetable please. That is complete now, and Mars directs Aug 27, finishes the cycle Oct 8! Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back! Literally months of retrograde in 2018!

With the multiple sign changes and months of retrogrades, things will be dug up, soil turned, soups, stews and mixed salads made! We will all be quite different and get used to multiple kinds of change! We will be more comprehensive, more aware and alert to things we never considered before, expanded – to say the least!By September 2019, FIVE of 2019’s six outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn sextile Neptune, is a peerless appraiser, if behind us, is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget the sleeping, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it!

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

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Virgo’s year they are exact twice – Jan 19 Pisces/Aries and June 30 Aries/Taurus of 2019! More

Outer Planet Transits with Virgo 2018 – August 2019!

Virgo Health Strong Stride Couple Nordic Walking

Virgo in a healthy strong stride! Walking is free – fresh air, healthy heart, relaxing!

Pluto in Capricorn reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018 moving from 18 to 23 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Pluto has been in trine with Virgo since 2008, gradually making its way along the degrees, now 2/3rds through, finishing Jan 2024. Something special may have started back then, taking years to comprehend fully. Virgo is thankful for the scrutiny of Pluto, another perfectionist, and is glad for Capricorn’s get-it-done encouragement. Yes there may be some gnashing of teeth when pet details must be left behind, or some quality sacrificed. They may sneak in unpaid at night to put on the final finishing details. It’s the principle of the matter, and their name is on it. You loved that project, but, sigh, it’s time to move on. There are even more glorious ones on the way and you will handle them well. Ultimately there will be a reasonable blend between your expertise and the timeline Pluto calls for. Yes, there is some pressure to perform, but you find you are better for it, and can do it. You too want the world to be a better place sooner than later.

Neptune is in its own sign, a water planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Pisces and Virgo are opposite and it is so apparent. Neptune sleeps and dreams, makes music, knows without knowing why or how, has addictions and sometimes illogical misty visions. Virgo is up and at it, exercise, shower, health food smoothie starts the day, clean machine! They are technically good at music, but not crazy at concerts. If anything, they would be the performer at the concert! Virgos are steady workers, sleep in their own bed. Neptune may blur their facts, drives Virgo crazy, but just the same gets them thinking and out of their rut. Neptune helps them understand why life is so different for the other person, so softens Virgo’s critique. The world becomes more than just the facts, sometimes even another dimension when Pisces’s visions prove true! Other times hard work and the facts really help the dream come true!

Uranus covers 28 Aries to 6 Taurus! Uranus entered Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last two degrees of Aries will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

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

No matter what sign Uranus is in, Virgo finds themselves blinking rapidly! When Uranus is in Aries, Virgo in the ER grabs the patient from the emergency personnel and starts the stabilization process. Virgo tallies everyone’s hours and makes sure they get paid, taking care of these people who don’t have time and can be quite tired after fighting the fires of the land day and night. She may be tired herself. Important to get rest and take care of yourself as well. New ideas are coming in at light speed and Virgos are the perfect people to adjust, make the shifts. It may be annoying and unsettling when your routine is changed, but Virgos always want to do a good job, so they take it in hand as quickly as possible. Be sure to thank these Virgos for keeping things together.

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Now in Taurus’s sign it will specialize in Taurus topics! It either feels too close for comfort, or it’s the most fun you’ve had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! You may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away at all. But somehow it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Divine body electric!

Earth signs Taurus and Virgo have simple and common sense. Though a little crazy with Uranus being in Taurus’s sign, the unexpected happening right and left, it can still be comforting to nervous Virgo. Virgo is a famed worrier, meeting one expectation after another. That can be exhausting. So the odd shocker is when Taurus says slow down, things will work out in the right time. Virgo can see they know of what they speak, so with a deep breath, an abiding patience and perseverance can come over them in a good way. They get it done on God’s time instead of other bleating beggars, and people come to see it’s just right after all! Trust. There will be a lot of support from Uranus’s friends, and working together smoothly, the job gets done sooner than planned and it looks good too!

Chiron, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, but now is in Aries, and covers different degrees, 27 Pisces to 5 Aries. It’s also close to the same degrees as Uranus, but in different signs! Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces for a while later on. See more. These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes; Aries takes action! Chiron entered Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees.

If you have Chiron in those degrees of PIsces/Aries, you will be having your 51+/- year Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head, brain and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Virgo is the village healer with the medicine basket of herbs from way back. She knows her stuff. Chiron looks into how deep the wound is, back in the psyche as well as the body. He looks to see if it is chronic and needs a longer unraveling spell. Virgo will stay bedside as long as it takes. She’s clever and offers little things to do that intrigue the patient beyond the smaller world they have been living in. Sometimes Chiron helps her know how this has affected the patient’s relationships and business. Virgo calms with her herbs while Chiron introduces some new ideas.

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life, commiserates all too well since he himself carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in some aspects of the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Aries inspires, leads us into the action! Virgo watches, takes the best ideas forward, integrates them into our daily living! Virgo’s pace is much more careful; she insists on learning the details for replication. Aries won’t stay long, but it was so worth the encounter! Once the seeds of these new ideas are planted, ‘Next!’ It’s imperative to continue the mission. Virgo tends the seeds and carries on in Chiron’s behalf. Steady on.

SATURN builds from 2 to 20 Capricorn. Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better or you start your own business!

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 2 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through August 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have acquired! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn can be a staunch advisor, mentor to apprentice Virgo. Saturn can tune up your timing, reputation, finances, how you build your relationships. It can arrange steady funding, a scholarship, or a job that suits your fine Virgo talents. Your work may be more demanding, and you may be honored by being asked to take charge of the project or the company. Your family may be expanding, your responsibilities along with that. Elders or children may need more of your time and care. A well qualified caregiver may arrive and become part of your family. It takes time to master your talents and hone them, but awards may come for the beautiful craftsmanship you have achieved. Document and register your work. Saturn helps you be timely, see what the priorities are, apply your attention to the right details that make the difference. It’s time for you to make a do-it-yourself video or speak to people that can use your help. Long term relationships, both personal and in business may be formed and marriages find more ways to work well.

JUPITER moves from 13 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!

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

Jupiter is the cheerful funny lucky traveler. While in Scorpio there is a deeper note and the journey might be more as an observer behind the scenes. Virgo and Scorpio have a lot in common. There are matters about sexuality, financial privacy, both are healers. Scorpio is the #1 sign of psycho therapists working at the deep levels. They help you sort out the underpinnings of your motives, the old, old wounds you didn’t know you had yet influence you to this day. Virgo keeps you in good health so Scorpio can do his work. Jupiter always has another plot to go somewhere, plus adventurous spontaneous options. He’s confident all will go well. Virgo might need a break, but it’s hard to get them going. The trip may be too much for Virgo, so listen to their objections well and don’t neglect them, or the objections, or it may be a one off. Virgos love to improve their knowledge, but Jupiter Scorpio intensity may be over the top for them. Take it easy and let them take things in at their own pace or give them time off. It’s a mixed combination.

Jupiter is a fire planet in his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Oh, Gawd! It’s a trip of a lifetime and Virgo doesn’t know whether to go or stay! Is there enough money, what if things don’t get done the right way, what will I eat?! Start planning and saving NOW! This may not be the time to be so frugal and virtuous! But a business trip on a budget might be just the ticket! Jupiter has big ideas; Virgo has several stockpiles of ideas that probably add up to Jupiter’s en total! It will either be a challenge to integrate, or they will ping off each other. Jupiter may give the bits and pieces Virgo carries a greater meaning! Virgo may be disappointed that Jupiter may be leaving so soon and might not be back. When he landed, he inspired everyone with his broad knowledge and well intended projects, confidence and optimism, but now Virgo could feel Jupiter is irresponsible. Nevertheless, she has been touched. She may engage in more courses, take some trips of her own in her own way. Her thinking may have more poise as she finds her ideas have more importance than she thought. She had underestimated herself! Get away from the computer and up on your feet, LOL!

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and marriages are quite possible.

Full Grain Moon!

Jupiter sextile Pluto! Sun, Saturn, Uranus Grand Earth Trine/Kite!

Sunday Aug 26 at 4:56 AM Pacific, 3 Pisces/Virgo 12

Virgo Full Moon Woodcut Art Nick Wroblewsky

Woodcuts artist Nick Wroblewski works in Duluth, MN where it snows during winter. He has time to do this amazing art! Many Virgos are superb craftspeople, and wood is often their medium. Facebook  Website

No eclipses, no SuperMoon, no more Mercury retrograde, Mars finishing his tomorrow! Since Mars doesn’t complete his entire Retrograde pattern until Oct 8, our experiences are leading us to the very threshold, the gateway of the Pluto on the Ecliptic Oct 30, a once every 248 years affair!

What IS big about this Full Moon is that it is leading up to the financially tasty Jupiter sextile Pluto Sep 12! They are less than 3 degrees apart NOW! This aspect is also good for healing and powerful learning. Luck and expertise will go hand in hand. Don’t be surprised if big dogs/horses and a we bit of gambling get in the mix. It is excellent for installing reliable business programs and placing people in very fitting positions. Things WILL get done and live long, and it will be fun! A special kind of fame and some honor may come with it. Consider imports/exports. Combine business travel with visits to sacred site. Keep your Spirit clean. Everything we are doing now, is leading to these possibilities! Make this final window of time count! Plan ahead, big! Be ready to take the chance!

A caveat. At the time of the Full Moon, Venus is square Pluto. The square presents difficulties that need solving to clear the way. Venus might not get her way, and you might not entirely either. Why? Likely there are hidden costs and someone has to pay. It may be tempting to cheat or steal, but this is NOT the time, and watch your back, stay out of harm’s way. Any new relationship in these few days aren’t exactly likely keepers – the potential partner may have serious health or financial issues, or someone that requires them to take care of that for them. Admit your issues that keep you from a greater success. Be a tad more kind, but not a pushover either. Perfection would be lovely, but when do you think that’s going to happen, right? If your sale price is more wishful thinking than reality, get opinions from some other  experienced sellers and make the needed adjustments. If your prices on your art have been too low, raise ’em.

Uranus is the key planet with a strong Earth Grand Trine/Kite formed to it! Sun has given Light in the past 2 days. In Virgo s/he is keenly seeing the great changes coming. She has also consulted with Saturn about when the best times are to do what! Uranus has lots of friends and Virgo will organize the crew, tend to their needs. Saturn divvys up the work so the most will get done in the least time. Uranus offers extraordinary insights to earth changes, the flow of goods and food, basic financial matters of our time, how to stay stable while change, sometimes chaos, are about us. Though grand tines can sometimes slack off, thinking all will be ok, Virgo and Capricorn are both work signs – Virgo with the infinite daily matters and fragments, Capricorn with the timeframe in mind, constantly adjusting the flow as needed.

Moon, in her Piscean empathy, sits midpoint (making the KITE), equidistant between sometimes tough old Saturn, and the wildcard Uranus, though Uranus in Taurus may be more steady. Either can be a challenge to Moon though the sextile aspects are good. Saturn claims experience and isn’t moved by ‘over’ emotional or unsafe conditions when saving the down and out. Uranus is faster than the speed of light, even in Taurus and it’s hard to get his attention. But if any sign can, it would be Pisces, and Moon is so sensitive she senses his slightest shift even before he does it! Pisces softens with Uranus with truer than true insights, senses when Saturn shifts a particle and goes for the opening. Pisces has its own way of permeating and following, can be enchanting. Uranus is so surprised when he finds Pisces tagging along that he listens!

Sun, Moon, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, and the Moon’s Nodes are from 1 to 5 degrees! It’s a tight bunch, all influencing the others! Sun opposite Moon in PIsces is the life of it, having the feeling of what’s up. Pisces is super sensitive and Father Sun want’s to know all the details in Virgo. Pisces sees the dream, and Virgo wants to take it on, even if it is, maybe especially if it is, detail by detail. That is their expertise. They want to serve, whatever it takes that they can do or learn to do. And they will do it well. Trust me. Pisces loves music, and most musicians I know have Virgo strong in their charts. Great music requires fine tuned adjustments and Virgo can do it!

Sun and Moon both activated Chiron, now previewing in Aries. There are new ways to live a quality life, to heal from old wounds. New relationships are forming, whether it is ourself to ourself, or to others with information we didn’t know existed! The business world is changing as we do or don’t connect with other countries. Business rules and methods are changing profoundly with computers and the internet. Jobs and careers come and go. Mutable signs like Pisces and Virgo are good at adjusting, being flexible. Both want the best and are alert to shifts in the valence. And it is so important who we work with.

Saturn is retrograding back to almost square Chiron. We are feeling it. The brush comes so close we are sure we are doomed, but it doesn’t happen. The fears we have are the hints there are things that need to be taken care of anyway. So do it. Be mindful to deal with health matters that nag you. Keep watch over certain friends that may need some assistance. Be gentle with your expectations. Get help if you need it. New ventures in business may be challenging. Do your best and know you did what you could.

Mars retrograde in Capricorn is being sure the latest tools and skills are being introduced and shown how to be used, where they fit in our lives. Mars goes back into Aquarius Sep 10, the day after the New Moon. Mars quickly scouts the area for new friends, inventors, group action leaders, people with their pulse on immediate events. Mars made connections while in Capricorn and will be sure these Aquarian type people have channels to the tools and supplies they need to continue their work effectively.

IN THE BACKGROUND

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!The Moon in Pisces lends magic and miracles! Sun in Virgo will work day by day, side by side with you to make them come true! Blessed be.

New Moon!

Sign Changes, Grand Fixed Square, Fixed Star Rigel!

Sunday September 9 at 11:01 AM Pacific, 17 Virgo 00

Virgo New Moon 2018 Sawtooths Milky Way Dark Sky Reserve

Milky Way at the US’s first Dark Sky Reserve, now one of 37 in the world! Ed Cannady Photo in the rugged lands of the Sawtooth [Mountains] National Forest, central Idaho. The International Dark Sky Association will have their annual meet Nov 9-11 at Snowbird UT!

No eclipses, no SuperMoon, no more Mercury or Mars retrograde! Since Mars doesn’t complete his entire Retrograde pattern until Oct 8, our experiences from before now, until then, are leading us to the very threshold, the gateway of the Pluto on the Ecliptic Oct 30, a once every 248 years affair!

3 New Moon Aspects

The New Moon stands just past opposition Neptune in his own sign Pisces! There may have been confusion at the same time as insights. You may not have felt like working or ended up doing something you didn’t expect but was just right. Fears and doubts are behind us. Knowing what they were keeps us on our toes. Spirit is our guide across the river.

Next, Moon and Sun sextile Jupiter in Scorpio! Virgo and Scorpio are both signs of perfection. Virgo keeps the budget, tracks the return on the investment. Scorpio uses the data to invest. Great returns are possible! Oh, yes, works for me! Virgo, the herbalist and practical technician, works hand in hand with the Scorpio midwife and saves people from dying or helps them kindly with the process. Send in your application and ask for the money you want. You may get the job and/or the funding you need. I can feel your tears of gratitude. If you are approached to be a backer, give it a chance.

To add strength to the Jupiter combination, the New Moon is also trine Pluto in Capricorn! Pluto is Scorpio’s planet, so it powerfully assesses what Jupiter is raving about. Capricorn realistically points out any possible flaws that might occur over time, so a less emotional decision can be well made. If you all decide to go ahead, reassess at an interval that would likely work well. Have a back up plan ready to step into in case it is needed. But chances are it will be a success that may need a few fixes along the way. Sun, Jupiter, Pluto alliances are just about invincible! Get out your calculators! Get your team lined up and start working toward your goal! Launch a business, website, important blog!

SUPER DAY! Try to have it wrapped up by the Sep 12 Jupiter Sextile Pluto at 0:56 AM Pacific! That mid of night time means it is most strongly in effect on Sep 11, when Sun sextiles Jupiter and trines Pluto! If the Sep 11 & 12 aspects, on an increasing Moon, connect well with your chart, they could bring you amazing results! (SEE your astrologer for you personal timing!)

3 Sign Changes

Venus just changed signs from Libra, her second sign, to Scorpio! Libra relationships are social and public; Scorpio relationships are personal and private. Libra makes cross cultural partners; Scorpio is part of the corporation, financial dealings. Libra is fine arts; Scorpio is psychological, skillful intricate healing in the deepest layers of our psyche. Venus now puts her blessing on delicate matters, places we might not be so proud of, yet are part of us. Sharing our story, so others know they are not the only one, may save lives. There are survivors holding their heads up. If we can know how they did it, we can do that our own way and stand on our own again. Virgo takes notes and especially pays attention to the process.

Mars is at the last degree of Capricorn. The New Moon emphasizes how Capricorn’s work is the wellspring poised at the brink of change! Mars goes into Aquarius the next day, Sep 10 at 5:56 PM Pacific! While Mars previously, in its retrograde cycle, went ahead in to AQ then retrograded back into Capricorn, we had a preview of why we should tend Capricorn’s mission with such dedication. AQ will need every bit of that foundation to carry on the massive changes needed across the board – political, economic, environmental, humanitarian.

Sep 25 Chiron in Aries retrogrades back to Pisces to strengthen our dreams, beliefs, intuitive understandings. We see more of the value in all beings, want to save Souls. Right now we are taking a good look at how to do get those dreams rolling, make potent new beginnings, how to lead efficiently and right to the pivotal point!

Grand Fixed Signs Square – Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius

We have Mars at 29, Venus and Chiron at 0 degrees, and Saturn and Uranus at 2 degrees in a network, each affecting the other! Throw in the Moon’s Nodes at 5 Leo/Aquarius and we have a grand fixed Square! Mars will square Venus. He wants it now; she may have previous plans, but he is persistent. They meet, but hoped for results may not be possible, too late. Or they quibble through it and hope it works anyway. Best is to revisit when Mars gets into AQ. He will want some new different things then. He squares Uranus, the planet of AQ. Uranus is more wild than Mars, but in Taurus may be perversely stubborn, not as quick to respond, or possibly doesn’t want to make as much change as Mars is advocating. Mars can’t count on his friend Uranus this time. Venus might be shy and a little put off by what may seem to be demanding rough or strange ways. The Moon’s North Node, the nodes alway retrograde, is making the squares with Uranus then Venus, last, the opposition/conjunction with Mars. The South Node in AQ is the past, so those old shift-under-your-feet AQ shocker styles won’t work as well this time. Surprise, unnerving strategies won’t be received so kindly. Shift over to the Leo North Node. Be more transparent, put a light on things, put your heart in it and see what happens. It still might not work. Fixed squares often stay just as they are until things move out of the pattern. It’s ok. You all got to take a look.

Also in the degree pattern are Mars sextile Chiron and Saturn trine Uranus. Chiron in Aries offers new ways to do business, relationships. Back in Pisces he offers more understanding to what is going on in our Spirits and the delicacy that may be needed to convince Venus. Saturn trine Uranus is one of those close-but-doesn’t-become-exact aspects. You hope, it gets mighty close, but that’s it. You end up letting go of that chapter. What does help is Venus sextiles Saturn! She can call on her father, her mentor, and elder she respects, an experienced expert. She wants to do what will work in the long term. Mars may be right but his timing may be off. People aren’t quite ready yet. In Scorpio she may not like that Leo Node bright light, but if she and Mars meet later on to review, there may be some surprising results as things are transforming quickly in spite of the fixed signs.

Fixed Star Rigel The new Moon at 17 Virgo squares Rigel at 16 Gemini 50 in the constellation Orion that so gloriously adorns the northern hemisphere winter heaven! Bluish white Rigel, is a double star, the 7th brightest star in the sky. Tradition regarding the influence of Rigel is quite contradictory. Ptolemy read it as Jupiter-Mars, showing a character that will take on anything before it, but such a person does have to be careful that their courage is used with wisdom and sincere purpose if they are not to be painfully stung for flaunting bravado for the sake of vanity. It is found in charts of government officials, military people, politicians, leaders of political parties, barristers and priests. Rigel may stir up Virgo, or Virgo is not impressed by Rigel’s boasting. He is formidable and no pushover no matter how intelligent Virgo is, but she may come to realize she needs a champion!

IN THE BACKGROUND

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

We are living in powerful times of trial and change! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times, what has come to be. Virgo welcomes planetary clean up, polishing our systems, living more purely each day. May we meet all our challenges in a good way. And so it is.

Leos ~ Magical Hearts, Uplifting Spirits!

Leo Meghan Markle Harry's wife Duchess of Sussex

Meghan Markle, Leo born Aug 4, 1981, 12 degrees Leo! Meghan went from her parent’s kid to actress – best-known role, Rachel Zane, on the American legal drama series Suits, to Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry’s wife! She has Cancer rising and Moon and three other planets in Libra.

Leos are noted for their crowning glory hair, their inimitable personal style, charming and young-at-heart romantic presence, athletic prowess! They are often regarded as having a heart of gold, being generous even when they don’t have a lot themselves.

As mates they can sweep you off your feet, put you first on their list, overwhelm you with their creds and prezzies! Give them prezzies and you have their heart. At times they appear to be selfish, though being themselves is important to them. It’s like they run their own experiments to see exactly what that has become to be! They are ardent lovers and want you to enjoy your time together. Or they are off on a strenuous, possibly dangerous, adventure and can’t always be with you. But, ninety nine point they come home the hero and so happy to see you! You forgive them everything and anything when you see the beautiful roses!

They are generally awesome parents, concerned with your physical and personal well-being, want your schooling to be the best, and may decide to personally homeschool. They certainly do a little teaching themselves. They are naturals and can’t help it. They will attend all your events as possible and are the loudest parent cheering you on. And when you graduate, OMG, they are SO proud! They may have been a little domineering to get you there, demanding, but they have such confidence in you it’s really a compliment! They truly believe in you. But there are times you have to keep clear whose life you’re living – yours or theirs. Teenage time can be a trial for both of you. Stay true.

Whether work or doing what they love, Leos want to be number one, and work hard to make it so. They may be the CEO or the labor leader. They give it their all, until they don’t. If they take time off, they are the laziest lion at the beach, snoozing and snoring, oblivious. When they rest they give that their all too, LOL. But, it’s not unusual for them to give prime performances and receive awards. They have a flair that makes you notice, they have big spirits that call you to follow, keep your attention. You want to be like them! They make extraordinary color, use light and shadow-shape sequences that open your senses beyond any experience you ever had before. It really is magical.

Leos are athletic and enjoy being in their bodies! Prowess looks good on them. They stretch like a cat, run pretty fast, dance like crazy tossing their manes with abandon! Their fire sign health is superlative. When they do get sick it is usually a Class A crisis, could be a high fever, their heart, a painful back, sport injury. And they are terrible patients. First they make the most of all that attention, but when the balance shifts, fewer visitors, and they are more healthy again, then they just wanna get out of bed and go do something! Showing weakness for long is not their cup of tea, and they can be stubborn about therapies, physical or emotional. The healer has to be very clever to keep that client interested, listening, not to upset their ego. You have to watch them like a hawk or they get into foods not on their diet. Don’t put chocolates or ice cream anywhere in sight!

On the other hand, Leos are fine Doctors! How happy it makes them to be the hero of our very lives! Vitality, zest for living makes a huge difference. You can be sure, even if your Dr is full of him/herself, thinks he’s God, he is going to be good at what he does and you are in good hands! But some really understand your plight and have those hearts of gold. You heal exceptionally quickly in their inspiring care. Blessed for sure.

Parties? Oh, yes! They do have enthusiasm! They send invitations, give orders, and that party is whipped into shape toot suite! Romantic lighting and decorations, dance music, excellent food and drink, in the summer, ice cream! Leos like acting, so costumes, dress up is always fun, who shall I be today?! Or come as you are! It’s not uncommon for Leos to have Leo parties for all their Leo friends! Party games get lots of laughs. High spirits! Possibly a famous glamorous guest. Memorable, of course.

There is no doubt Leos are special Light Souls. Their shining Spirits, their courage, a steady willingness to bring you with them, to share their knowledge with you, inspires us every day. They praise our smallest efforts and tell us we can do it. Their smile lights a room and the whole event changes when they walk in. They have stage presence, or the ability to act like they do, even when they are scared!

Some super famous Leos! JK Rowling/Daniel Radcliffe (four planets in Leo!), Barack Obama, Whitney Houston, Madonna, Chris Hemsworth, Amelia Earhart, Jennifer Lopez, Sandra Bullock, Mick Jagger (four planets in Leo!), Halle Berry – first and only woman of color to win an Oscar for a leading role (Mercury, Moon/Sun in Leo – a double Leo!)!

“Go boldly and honestly through the world. Learn to love the fact that there is nobody else quite like you.”
― Daniel Radcliffe, born July 23, 1989

Leo 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Perseid Meteor Showers Aug 11 - 12, 2016

Late evening to dawn on August 11, 12 and 13, 2018, the Perseids! 

The Perseid meteor shower is perhaps the most beloved meteor shower of the year for the Northern Hemisphere. It’s a rich meteor shower, and it’s steady. Best of all, the slender waxing crescent moon will set at early evening, providing deliciously dark skies for this year’s Perseid meteors. These swift and bright meteors radiate from a point in the constellation Perseus the Hero. As with all meteor shower radiant points, you don’t need to know Perseus to watch the shower; instead, the meteors appear in all parts of the sky. These meteors frequently leave persistent trains. Perseid meteors tend to strengthen in number as late night deepens into midnight, and typically produce the most meteors in the wee hours before dawn. In 2018, the peak night of this shower will be totally free of moonlight. Predicted peak in 2018: the night of August 12-13, but try the nights before and after, too, from late night until dawn.

Don’t rule out early evenings, either. As a general rule, the Perseid meteors tend to be few and far between at nightfall and early evening. Yet, if fortune smiles upon you, you could catch an earthgrazer – a looooong, slow, colorful meteor traveling horizontally across the evening sky. Earthgrazer meteors are rare but memorable. Perseid earthgrazers can only appear at early to mid-evening, when the radiant point of the shower is close to the horizon.

Leo 2018 Timeline!

2018 Leo hosts the third and last magical dreams-come-true Jupiter trine Neptune Aug 19, two of our three 2018 summer eclipses, the Perseids Meteors, and 24 days of the Mars/Mercury double Retrograde July 25 to Aug 18!

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

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

RETROGRADES emphasis! As of May 12, we started into the Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde sequence. See the Timetable please. July 25 to Aug 18 we have Mars and Mercury retrograde AT THE SAME TIME! Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back! Literally months of retrograde in 2018!

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

By August 2019, four of 2019’s six outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn, a peerless appraiser, if behind us, is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget the sleeping, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it!

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

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Leo’s year they are exact twice – Jan 19 Pisces/Aries and June 30 Aries/Taurus of  2019! More

Outer Planet Transits with Leo 2018 – August 2019!

Leo Woman Traveler Luggage Heels

Leos were little commanders even as toddlers and they are still going to the top!

Pluto in Capricorn reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018 moving from 18 to 23 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Pluto and Leo may have financial contentions. Leo wants to spend it, lots of it; Pluto may need to limit the spending. Or, Pluto’s portfolio is so substantial, it’s no problem. Of course, Leo is often the star, and Pluto may be jealous and possessive, and/or manage your vast funds astutely! Leo is thinking, ok, as long as the money keeps rolling in…but eventually can only be themselves no matter what Pluto wants. Inheritances can happen, but often because of a sad loss. Sometimes part of the loss is bitter battles over who gets what. Or there is no will. Do make yours. Cautions about secrets. Leo can splash it about, but there may be a price if Pluto is wounded, or can blackmail if Leo has been naughty. Leos have their pride and Pluto sees their deepest flaws. Pluto may call you to face up, and be of great help with your healing process if you let them. Trust on both sides is needed. Leo and Capricorn are often a great combination, each so proud of the other. Capricorn may hold the reigns more tightly than Leo’s fiery spirit can bear, and be too grinchy with the funds. Let loose a bit or you may lose your Leo! Let them warm your heart, especially when you get a little scared. Leos often find it hard to admit fear in themselves or others, so talk it through with a friend, before you talk with your Leo, and do your best. They do admire courage!

Neptune is in its own sign, a water planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Leo is enthralled with magic, magnificent dreams, and are ardent fans of heroes and heroines! Leo is led to support causes for those in need, inspired by Neptune’s compassion. Neptune can diffuse our intentions, a seeming confusion, as our consciousness expands. Our senses extend beyond any dimension we ever imagined, and we are freed to be illuminated. Sometimes Neptune’s web is strong and holds us until we are at full strength. Quite a difference from Leo’s stage, Neptune calls on us to take time out, recenter, respect solitude. Yoga and sports works well! As a result, Leo and Neptune may find themselves in league producing the concert of epic proportions!

Uranus covers 28 Aries to 6 Taurus! Uranus entered Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last two degrees of Aries will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

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

Leo finds itself in the exotic position of being the sign opposite Uranus’s sign Aquarius, and inspired by its fellow fire sign Aries! Just those last two degrees, 28 and 29 are all that’s left. Though fire signs sometimes seem impervious, wrapped up in their own doings, uninterruptible or you get singed without them even realizing it, these last two degrees sense the urgency of finishing what was started. The summary needs to be made and all needs to be accounted for. There needs to be a peace, a recognition of the achievements and people who got us there and to make us aware of future possibilities. Leo is the perfect party arranger and Master of Ceremonies for the event! It’s significant for the group. They all have become leaders! It’s inspiring!

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Now in Taurus’s sign it will specialize in Taurus topics! It either feels too close for comfort, or it’s the most fun you’ve had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! You may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away at all. But somehow it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Divine body electric!

Leo and Uranus like to be stand out people! Uranus is ahead of its times and Leo loves to take the lead! But turtle Taurus?! Hmpf. Ok. Taurus provides a comfy place and funding, sure. A massage? You bet! Might use hot stones, magnets, a warm sauna, or electrotherapy. I’ll try it. Once Taurus has them relaxed and listening, ask those Leos questions about our environment, take them for a barefoot walk in the woods. Let them feel the breeze, hear the birds, look at plants and trees. What about food production? How well and what are they eating – organic? Do they own things they love or are they possessed by what they own? What about children? Uranus in Taurus is electric, but steadfast. These questions don’t go away. We are perhaps unsettled, even shocked, but we will be moved. And the weather will change.

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

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Leo is the sign of physicians/teachers, and Chiron is the Healer/teacher and Pisces the Savior! Chiron was known for chronic diseases, while Leo excels in sports medicine! While connected with Chiron, Leo will probably bring in the physical therapist, move your mind and spirit, get you back on your feet in no time! Pisces is the sensitive and helps Leo ‘see’ the patient through the patient’s own eyes. Synthesized healing and teaching become specialized. Remarkable results. The doctor/teacher may marry the patient/student!

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life, commiserates all too well since he himself carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in some aspects of the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Aries inspires; Leo has his back! Leo does also have the lazy lion pace, so won’t always be ready on time, but Aries will leave you behind, and Leo wants to see! So off they go! Don’t count on this Aries to stay long though anyway. Once the seeds of these new ideas are planted, ‘Next!’ It’s imperative to continue the mission. Leo can see how to be more independent and carries on in Chiron’s behalf, perhaps funding the new medical research center.

SATURN builds from 2 to 20 Capricorn. Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better or you start your own business!

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 2 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through August 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn can be a staunch advisor, mentor to grateful Leo. Saturn can tune up your timing, reputation, finances, how you build your relationships. It can be a nemesis if cutting your funding, or job. Your work may be more demanding, and you may be honored by being asked to take charge of the project or the company. Your family may be expanding, your responsibilities along with that, or you wish it would and sadly it doesn’t. Elders or children may need more of your time and care. Leo may find themselves realizing they have become excellent performers and teachers over the years, have come further than they ever thought they would. Relationships have brought many changes and rewards throughout years of learning. Saturn helps Leo be less self indulgent, use your time more wisely. You might lose some weight and feel so sleek!

JUPITER moves from 13 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!

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

Jupiter is the cheerful funny lucky traveler. While in Scorpio there is a deeper note and the journey might be more as an observer behind the scenes. Leo is both excited and pleased to have been asked along and at other moments nonplussed, wondered what the heck have I gotten into?! Sometimes Scorpio has a hidden agenda that you didn’t sign up for, LOL! But the scenery is terrific, the temples are profoundly life changing, generally health is good, and Jupiter in Scorpio is an adept healer/prophet. Cheaper than the doc at the hospital. Leo will have so many tall stories to tell, teaching stories too. Do take lots of images and video so they will actually believe you! Dancing! Jupiter may agree to fund you. Ask for the max! There may be a lover, but not a keeper, depending on what else you have going in your own chart at the time. Good luck!

Jupiter is a fire planet in his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Oh, Gawd! It’s a trip of a lifetime and Leo is going! Jupiter ups the amps and the trip is more expensive, longer, grander, you meet famous people and there are excellent accommodations! Start planning and saving NOW! Get the best you can! This is not the time to be so frugal and virtuous! (Should one ever say that to a Leo?!) You have one year to do that trip, or trips! When Jupiter goes into Capricorn Dec 2019, believe me, things won’t be the same – business trips on a budget. Leo likes to be comfy, often at home, so be clear if you are considering a Jupiterian/Sagittarian for a mate. You may be swept off your feet by this good looking, impressive stranger, but they are likely to be gone, with or without you. You both best enjoy traveling or you will be a lonely Leo, and we can’t have that! They do keep you on your feet while they are around and your health will likely be A+! They will be missed but, oh, the memories!

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and marriages are quite possible.

Full Strawberry Moon! Building a Better World! 

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

Cancer 2018 Full Strawberry Moon

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The glorious Jupiter trine Neptune continues…. They are staying in close aspect now through the 3rd and last trine Aug 19, the day after Mercury in Leo turns forward out of Retrograde. Jupiter is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking are Jupiter super talents. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with Neptune in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may take a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time. See more. Plan ahead, take the chance!

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

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

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

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

Cancer New Moon 2018 Sunset Crater Volcano

A homespun calico blue gingham New Moon sky studded with Milky Way stars! Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument​, Flagstaff AZ ~ image by Christian Heeb via Getty Images

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

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

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


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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

The juicy Jupiter trine Neptune continues…. Jupiter has turned forward! They are 3 degrees apart and closing, less than a month away from their 3rd and last trine Aug 19, the day after Mercury in Leo turns forward out of Retrograde.

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

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

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

Cancers Feed the Tribe, Body and Soul…

Cancer Chef Anthony Bourdain dining with Prez Obama

Cancer born June 25, 1956. Let’s celebrate the life of renowned and much loved, inspiring Chef, Host, Author & Adventure-seeker Anthony Bourdain who is no longer with us on this Earth plane. CNN said of chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain: “His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink, and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller.”

Formerly the chef at Les Halles in New York City, Bourdain broke into national fame with his book Kitchen Confidential. He landed on the Food Network with A Cook’s Tour, then gained a broader audience as star of Travel Channel’s Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. He moved to CNN in 2013, where Season 11 of his show premiered last month. Peabody Award judges honored Bourdain’s Parts Unknown in 2013 for “expanding our palates and horizons in equal measure.”

Cancers are strong on home, and Chef’s home was the whole world. In his own mothering way, he integrated across cultural, racial, and status divides. Chef was a champion active in social causes, particularly in highlighting the role of immigrant workers in restaurant kitchens. For years, he was vocal about how immigrants are the backbone of the industry but that their contributions are marginalized and ignored.

Bourdain was so true to himself. He dropped out of college in the early 1970s and transferred to The Culinary Institute of America. Cancers are often artists and photographers ~ well, he put you right there in the picture with his words that made you see and feel what he was telling you! “I wanted it all: the cuts and burns on hands and wrists, the ghoulish kitchen humor, the free food, the pilfered booze, the camaraderie that flourished within rigid order and nerve-shattering chaos,” he wrote. “I love the sheer weirdness of the kitchen life: the dreamers, the crackpots, the refugees, and the sociopaths with whom I continue to work; the ever-present smells of roasting bones, searing fish, and simmering liquids; the noise and clatter, the hiss and spray, the flames, the smoke, and the steam.”

Chef was open to the core, the good, the bad and the ugly. He lived big and broad. He kicked addictions to heroin and cocaine. He was twice married and divorced, and had a daughter, Ariane. Recently, he had shared photos together with his girlfriend, actress and filmmaker Asia Argento. Asia said “He was my love, my rock, my protector. I am beyond devastated.”

Cancers take you under their wing like an old broody hen, make us feel safe. “Journalists drop into a situation, ask a question, and people sort of tighten up,” Bourdain said. “Whereas if you sit down with people and just say, ‘Hey what makes you happy? What do you like to eat?’ They’ll tell you extraordinary things, many of which have nothing to do with food.”

Obama said: “Low plastic stool, cheap but delicious noodles, cold Hanoi beer. This is how I’ll remember Tony. He taught us about food — but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together. To make us a little less afraid of the unknown. We’ll miss him.”

See Tony’s astrology chart. With Mercury and Venus in Gemini he had an additional gift with words. In Leo, Jupiter in close conjunction with Pluto gave him bold intensity that left no stone unturned, triggered revelation. They made him a teacher with a big heart, a consummate performer. Sadly, those two in T Square with Saturn in Scorpio, and with his Mars in Pisces, led to his demise at his own hands. His birthtime is unknown ~ the Moon was either Capricorn or Aquarius, and his Ascendant is unknown. Whatever his ascendant is, it made him 6′ 4″ tall, and taller yet in Spirit. RIP dear Soul.

Cancer 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Mars July 2018 compared 2020 NASA

Mars to Shine Brighter This Summer Than It Has in 15 Years

  • Over the course of the next several weeks, the distance between the Earth and the Red Planet will shrink.
  • It will shift from the predawn sky to the night sky
  • Mars will be brighter than Jupiter July 7 to September 7, brightest the morning of July 31, brighter than Jupiter by some 1.8 times!
  • The next time Mars comes as close as it will this summer won’t occur again until Sept. 15, 2035.
Amazingly, for a period of about two months, Mars will supplant Jupiter as the fourth brightest celestial body, after the sun, moon and Venus. Mars’ reign as the fourth-brightest celestial body (or third brightest in the nighttime sky, after the moon and Venus) will last from about July 7 to September 7.

Solstice Facts!

Solstice brings extremes of daylight and darkness
In N. Hemisphere, noontime shadows are shortest at this solstice
Longest day for N. Hemisphere, but not the latest sunset
Shortest day for S. Hemisphere, but not the latest sunrise
The slowest sunsets come around the solstices

Cancer 2018  Timeline!

June
21 Happy Summer Solstice! Happy Cancer!
26 Mars Retrograde
27 Full Strawberry Moon Capricorn/Cancer

July
7  Mercury Retrograde cycle starts
12 New SuperMoon Solar Eclipse!
16 Chiron/Uranus semisextile
22 Happy Leo!
25 Mercury in Leo starts double Retrograde

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

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

Cancer 2018 hosts no major outer planet aspects, but nurtures us in the aftermath of various shifts and schisms, nurtures us to step into our future selves.

RETROGRADES emphasis! As of May 12, we started into the Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde sequence. Gemini, one of Mercury’s signs, further emphasizes this passage! See the Timeline above please. July 25 to Aug 18 we have Mars and Mercury retrograde AT THE SAME TIME! Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrogrades back to back! Literally months of retrograde!

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

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

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

Outer Planet Transits with Cancer 2018 – July 2019!

Cancer Toddlers playing late day sunny road

Remember when you were little? Who did you want to be and where did you go? Cancer’s journey begins in the womb, the Mother place that means so much to them. Intuitive as they are, they pick up a lot even then. Sometimes they ‘stay home,’ live their parents’ expectations. Other times they are the leaders over the divides of decades and cultural expectations, and against the odds ‘take their parents with them.’ Whether you are the Little Prince (author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry a Cancer), Alice in Wonderland (Lewis Carroll, Moon conjunct the ASC Sagittarius) or Cinderella (Charles Perrault birthtime unknown), maybe it’s your time to take the lead, kindly, in a good way.

Pluto in Capricorn reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018 moving from 18 to 23 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Cancer, Moon, and Pluto, Scorpio, have resonance as water signs and planets. Capricorn opposite Cancer is something else. One, they are the traditional axis of Father/Mother, child/parent, feminine/masculine, home/career, emotions/science. Both are traditional. Cancer loves genealogy, family culture, antiques. Capricorn rules patriarchal authorities, elders and archaeology, bones and homes of the past. Their ultimate goal together is for their children to flourish and carry on the best the family has to offer. Capricorn can seem harsh to Cancers, who ruled by the 27 day lunar cycle, the Moon, have unpredictable emotions. They need a little wiggle room, and Cappies like law and order, no fooling around or wasting time on invisible things! There are times of strain unless Capricorn sees the value of intuition, comforts Cancer through certain times, and acknowledges all things are not 100% scientific!

Neptune is in its own sign, a water planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 13 and 18 degreeswill be activated with this pure energy! Cancer may not be as spiritually intent as Neptune/Pisces, but she does know family comes first! That’s her spiritual goal! There’s little time for addictions, zero time for being the martyr when your kids need you. Yet she shares that uncanny intuition, and values the insights her dreams give her. She has lunar cycles, while Neptune/Pisces have tidal cycles. Cancer and Neptune understand things come and go, ebb and wane, return and leave, live and die. Children grow up, the Soul quests the Universe. Some things are just bigger than others, from a grain of tidal sand to the new and full Moons of Cancer that correlate with the tides of Neptune. They are as one. Cancer cherishes time to sit quietly. It’s good to know there are oceanic options always there should she decide to leave home.

Uranus covers 28 Aries to 6 Taurus! Uranus entered Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees of Aries will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

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

Cancer is pushed off center by Aries, and sudden changes that come by both Uranus and Aries! If you want to keep on with what your Mother did, family traditions, you may be chagrined or if you have a few rebel bones too, delighted to find new ways to carry on! Uranus and Aries generally don’t have time to coddle or cater to your feelings, you might have to give a mighty yell to get their attention, in fact! At times their doings are more important in the long term, and you come to see that and resent them less. But you can feel abandoned and neglected. You can help them learn better how to deal with the average citizen who doesn’t have as mighty a project out there on the fringes. You might like what they are doing, but not how they are doing it when dealing with humans, children. If you are a supporter, they are lucky to have you. Compared to odd/exotic Uranians, an ‘ordinary’ Cancer can take that project to the town hall meeting and get it launched!

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Now in Taurus’s sign it will specialize in Taurus topics! It either feels too close for comfort, or it’s the most fun you’ve had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! You may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away. But it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Divine body electric!

Cancer is still leery of Uranus, but in Taurus as least it is more calm. Taurus can be patient, but perhaps not so patient about environmentalism and sustainability. They want things to last. And so do Cancers who by nature need security. Food comes from the land, and Cancers make meals for their family. They want good quality, organic if possible, food. Taurus is our bodies, and Cancer knows how important right balance of nutrients is and to keep steady with exercise. More of us may find ourselves with furry pets. Research says our pets help us live longer and that goes well with Cancer who wants to live long and well to take care of their loved ones. Uranus in Taurus interventions are more likely to be well received.

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

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Cancer is good with the fellow nurturer Chiron and the Spirit healer Pisces, body and Soul. Cancer knows there is more than what we see with our eyes. Pisces has its dreams and visions, Cancer has an array of feeler emotions that reach out and see their own way. Cancer is happy with Chiron’s remedies and understanding, tenderness with children and animals, ones that have Soul sicknesses. Knowing someone who ‘knows’ is there makes Cancer feel safer, so they are less crabby. And Cancer loves learning! Since security is on Cancer’s list, she likes Chiron’s business ideas too! Might even open her own business!

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life, commiserates all too well since he himself carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in some aspects of the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Cancer knows how things can be swept under the carpet. Cancer can tend to get overweight and turn into a homebody in denial. But the world continues on around us. We are needed as teachers, and Cancers are relentless scholars! Aries wants us to be the leader, on the cutting edge. They need the historic facts to back their play. Be ready to consult, they may need you at any moment! Chiron in Aries can get grumpy when they know something vital needs timely attention. Dr Chiron would certainly be there for you if your child was sick!

x
SATURN builds from 2 to 20 Capricorn. Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better or you start your own business!

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 2 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through July 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn stands opposite Cancer. Saturn/Capricorn can feel like a ton of bricks when Cancer is feeling sensitive. Or when Cancer is feeling sensitive, good old Saturn is their rock and we are so grateful they keep us feeling safe and steady. Every once in a while we just need to be a little lunar crazy and no amount of consoling is wanted! There are times our very instability is our ticket to intuitions, premonitions, fluid feelings that get us right where we need to be with the very right answer! Not logical but it works. Capricorn can learn that is a special kind of order they can use themselves at times. Lock down isn’t always the answer. Cancers do at times need to grow up. They can be like little adult children with that sweet face and childlike voice. You don’t know whether to believe them or not. Capricorn is the wizened child, either by face or demeanor. Take a cue from them. Take advantage of their example. Slim Cappies are noted for self-discipline and not being self-indulgent. Cancer’s addiction is food. Timing and situational events can be our undoing. Capricorn turns his energy to avoiding time wasting dangerous environments, instead, puts his attention on work, building. Balance is good.
x
JUPITER moves from 13 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!Jupiter in Scorpio! Scorpio wants you to heal, to heal your relationship and be healed by them, and increase your financial potential! Scorpio charisma is compelling, and has nothing to do with beauty. It is from a wellspring within. Scorpio is doctor hood, from cleansing your personal plumbing, purging toxins, to forensics. Scorpio often has extraordinary personal healing capacity, and can save your life too! They want to know how things work, do research. Jupiter may take Scorpio worldwide to seek investments, study shamanistic skills, find answers to lifesaving questions. Old remedies the midwives knew may come back into use. Through journalistic research justice may come for those who have suffered long extreme abuse – land grabs, sexual abuse, calculated theft, slavery/human trafficking, murdering of children and animals. Secret factions may unite for prevention, education, exposé and social justice. Be safe. If you aren’t up to par, take time out. Let your Ninja 6th sense and stealth protect you.

Jupiter is the cheerful funny lucky traveler. While in Scorpio there is a deeper note and the journey might be more as an observer behind the scenes. Cancer being the hearth bunny may see this need for silence, recovery from the intensity he has witnessed, and she may simply give him a place to rest. Or, wanting to learn, she pesters him with many questions until he says ‘Enough!’ They laugh and she leaves him alone 5 mins. She learns more about the intimacies of the world – cultural differences that people live and die for, financial gain and ruin, hate, crime and saviors. Takers and donors. Living in misery or swaddled in wealth. She changes as she listens. She’s more grateful, more determined to stand for the good things she believes in, to be more aware of what’s behind the scenes and respond more appropriately. It’s not as potent to hear it on the news and turn the news off. Your friend, who has appeared on your doorstep brings this personally, experienced it, and you can’t turn him off.

Jupiter is a fire planet in his own fire sign Sagittarius! Cancer is the first water sign, Mother’s Milk. While Sag goes racing off around the world, Cancer has the hearth fire burning right at home. Always the scholar, she is intrigued by Sag stories, and travels for free with no danger as his stories are so picturesque she can see the people and places! She knows better than to trust he will always be there for her, but he gives her the confidence of the world because he goes and comes back, generally unscathed. When he’s here, she is cheered! She in turn has more hopes for her own doings, including those uncommon recipes! Her senses are broadened, her insights more far reaching. Sag is an exciting rogue and it’s catching! The weekend trips, vacations are a little longer now, intriguing places visited. She has stories of her own to tell and the pictures to prove it! Sag enjoys the visit with this Earth Mother. He finds he is comforted by her attentions and feels bold again, good food and all, snacks packed, and off he goes!

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and marriages are quite possible.

Happy Birthdays, Cancers!

Cancer Family Reunion

We’ve clearly got some family resemblances at this reunion! Possible twins, Grandma and Grandpa look happy, there’s the little boy doing what little boys do! Maybe you have never had such a reunion, yours was just like this one, down home. Or maybe you all rented a hall or had dinner at a fine restaurant dressed to kill. Our families are so different, large, small. We are not perfect and we have our differences with each other, but there is love.

Bless all you Cancer sweeties! We adore you!

Gemini, It’s in Your Hands…

Gemini Prana Breath of Life Hand Touch

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Gemini 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Summer Solstice Rock Platanos Greece

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

Solstice Facts!

Solstice brings extremes of daylight and darkness

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

Each solstice marks a “turning” of the year

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

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

The slowest sunsets come around the solstices

13 New Moon
21 Happy Summer Solstice!
26 Mars Retrograde

July
7 Mercury Retrograde cycle starts

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Outer Planet Transits with Gemini 2018 – June 2019!

Gemini Pansy Flowers! Full Face to Life!

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

Pluto in Capricorn reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018 moving from 18 to 23 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

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

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

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

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

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

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Now in Taurus’s sign it will specialize in Taurus topics! It either feels too close for comfort, or it’s the most fun you’ve had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! You may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away. But it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Divine body electric!

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

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

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

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

SATURN builds from 2 to 20 Capricorn. Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better or you start your own business!

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 2 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through May 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

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

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

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

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

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and marriages are quite possible.

Gemini Sacred Geometry of Mind Alchemeyez by Robby Donaghey

Powerful portrait of the array of our stunning Gemini human sacred geometry at work. Robby Donaghey calls this image Alchemeyez.

I would like to impress you with how complicated and amazing Gemini’s consciousness is. Myriads of information are processed in a split second! That also is processed by the Pineal Gland, the Third Eye, where mental alchemy results in psychic perception as well.

Taurus, Peace, Strength and Insight

Taurus International Yoga Day

Taurus saves us every day. It’s the sign of body awareness. Ruled by Venus, it seeks grace, beauty that permeates us. Peace comes into our hearts. Wellness makes for radiance and attractiveness. Being centered and grounded bring immediate true simple reactions, sensible solutions. It is humble, admits error, smiles with joy at success of our personal contributions that support all. There is innocence without contrivance or competition. Venus is giving. Taurus stands in patience, kindness.

Such strength is often invisible, a gentle daily action that is relaxing to follow, yet if you stand back, you can see it. There are times when their restraint is their success. It is no sign of weakness to wait until a good time. Physically, Tauruses often have amazing strength and endurance. They can lift extraordinarily heavy objects with no effort at all.

Oh, yes indeed, the same strength for forward motion can also be them standing in front of you with their arms crossed over their chest, immovable as the Oak tree. You can be gentle, rage at them, be clever with your logic to no avail. Maybe they will think on it and get back to you. That might take a short time, a few years, maybe never. You can only admire how they be true to themselves. If they tell you it will be a certain way, you can trust that will be so.

Yoga is known for flexibility, for it’s dedicated breath work, prana, the life force itself. It is known for requiring strength. The United Nations International Yoga Day, recently established in 2015, is June 21, as it is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and shares special significance in many parts of the world. In the US it correlates with Father’s Day, the third Sunday in June. We expect a lot of our men, to be strong all the time, to have patience beyond measure for mere mortals. We want them to protect us, yet be flexible to grow with us as times change. For Yoga Day to be theirs is suitable for our heroes! And they will have better health and a longer life for us to love them!

The most sacred possession you have is your own body ~ it is the instrument of your Soul’s music. That’s Taurus’s job. A good night’s sleep. Maybe a Salutation to the Sun upon waking up, to see that sunrise. Maybe you love the night time and seeing the beautiful stars and moon. Do what feels good in a good way, be peaceful to your own Self. Get exercise that keeps you on an even keel. A nature walk, taking your doggie or a good friend with you. Eat less, go for quality. It pays off in the long run. You are worth it. Sing with that lovely voice you have and take good care of your throat.

Be touched and give hugs. Do and get massages. Feel the water around your legs, the mud squish between your toes. Hold your face to the sun, let the sun warm your back, the wind ruffle your hair. Hear the crinkle of stepping on fresh snow, breathe deep taking in that snappy cold air. Heady! Lift your chin and let the sights tickle your eyes, the wildflowers in the meadow. Throw back your head and laugh because it’s all so amazing! Dance! Let your worries shape shift into another dimension. When you get back to work they shall have reordered themselves into an unexpected harmony, a doable scenario. You settle down to it.

Tauruses know the intrinsic values of things. Some things are lasting, permanent. Others things are transient, maybe flashy, but go their way shortly. Some become boring. Some we turn our backs on upon sight. Nope, not a step skipped or a moment’s hesitation, decision made. They are natural appraisers of land, people. They can feel you in a handshake, hear you in your voice, see the way you carry your body, or how your feet touch that ground, or as you walk through the door. Ask their advice and do listen.

One of the most valuable things to them is their connection with you. They are loyal to the ones they choose. They will be there for you. Make a point of being there for them too. Keep them in your heart. They are dedicated workers, often work with the land and earth in some way. They will make a stronghold for you, the children, their parents. They are sensuous lovers, love holding hands, snuggling in the flannels. Put your arm around their waist or shoulders. In the world, they make foundations to support important causes, may donate important property.

Thank you for being exactly who you are. Blessed be forever and ever.

Taurus 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Before dawn, Lyrid meteors in a dark sky Earth Day!

Lyrid Meteors Radiant Sky & Telescope

Thanks to EarthSky’s Bruce McClure for test, Sky & Telescope for image!

Early risers! April 21 to 23 – start watching late at night, or better yet in the hours before dawn Sunday, EARTH DAY, April 22. The annual Lyrid meteor shower will probably be at its best in the predawn hours, especially as the waxing moon will have set by that time. Assuming you’re in a dark location, you really can’t go wrong getting up in the hours before dawn Sunday and gazing skyward. You might catch some meteors, and you’ll surely see the three morning planets, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars, plus the star Antares! April 23 AM only.

Taurus 2018  Timeline!

Apr

19  Happy Taurus!
22  Lyrids Meteors best in predawn AM
29  Full Pink Moon

May 15!
New Moon 4:48 AM Pacific
Uranus into Taurus! 8:23 Am Pacific
Mars into Aquarius, the Uranian sign! 9:55 PM Pacific
25 Jupiter in Scorpio Trine Neptune in Pisces

By far, the most exciting aspect in Taurus 2018 is it hosts the Uranus sign change from Aries to Taurus at the Taurus NEW MOON! Fitting indeed! New beginnings! Mars is the planet of activation, ignition, leadership, action! Uranus is the planet of evolution, dramatic sweeping change! Things just won’t look the same a year from now!

We are in the last part of Mercury’s retrograde cycle, finishing completely May 3. Jupiter trines Neptune May 25, showing up in Full and New Moon charts now.

  1. Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Tauruses’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde back into their previous signs, and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Chiron shifted from Pisces to Aries April 17. Less than a month later, Uranus shifts from Aries to Taurus May 15! They will both be in Aries April 17 to May 15, Uranus passing the baton to Chiron. Late in the year, Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8.
  2. RETROGRADES emphasis! July 25 to Aug 18 we have a Mars/Mercury double retrograde. Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back!

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

Continuing abiding Aspects: 

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

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

Outer Planet Transits with Taurus 2018 – May 2019!

Taurus Skyline Dr Shenandoah National Park Wildflower Weekend

Skyline Drive, 105 miles. This route stretches through Shenandoah National Park, end-to-end, with the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains and more than 1,300 species of plants. The annual Wildflower Weekend is in early May, featuring special talks and guided nature hikes showcasing local wildlife. Bucket list.

Pluto in Capricorn reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018 moving from 18 to 23 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 20 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Taurus is Pluto’s sign Scorpio’s opposite sign. Taurus and Capricorn are both earth signs. Taurus and Pluto both are money signs, Taurus is my money, the money at hand, in your pocket. Scorpio is our money, of couples and corporations, all big monies like insurance, grants, loans, mortgages. A working balance is called for paying what’s owed and some happiness spending money. Taurus is known for common sense, steady attrition. Pluto wants to invest your money, which may be a shrewd move, or scare you to death and you prefer your reserves to possible loss. Pluto may give Taurus the sense they are being manipulated, or used, or with Pluto’s keen observations you may feel like someone finally really understands you. In the face of Pluto’s possible obsessions, stand your ground, stay steady with your considerations. Pluto can be seductive, so give it time. Trust yourself, stay safe. They have their way; you have yours. Way.

Neptune is in its own sign, a water planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Pisces sees and dreams the vision, has empathy for those who suffer. Sometimes they need rescuing themselves, from being overwhelmed by what they see, from sadness that brings them down. Taurus helps steady that unbridled flow. Neptune symbolizes the flow of the land and seasons with its vast seasonal ocean currents. Taurus’s territory is what’s under his feet. Neptune swirls him to new shores. Neptune softens the deep consideration of Taurus’s ruminations, introduces a less obvious mystical sense into the mix. Though a bit unsettling, it removes that stubborn edge if you surrender. Things go a little faster, energy is released. Barefoot is best.

Uranus covers 28 Aries to 4 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees of Aries will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

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

In Aries, the spark may be a bit bright for Taurus. Taurus is the sign of rumination, the Bull and his 4 stomachs, digesting, absorbing, moving information from one dimension to the next, the ability to be still while doing so. There truly is progress, it just isn’t always visible. But conclusions are well thought out. Uranus electrifies, brings ideas ahead of their times, that mortify or magnetize! Intriguing show to say the least. We find ourselves thinking of them, questioning, even if we thought we disagreed. Maybe it is the manner of presentation rather than the ideas themselves. Maybe it’s time to kick up our heels and make a run for it!

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Now in Taurus’s sign it will specialize in Taurus topics! It either feels too close for comfort, or it’s the most fun you’ve had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! You may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away. But it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, but covers different degrees, 27 Pisces to 4 Aries, the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes; Aries takes action! Chiron entered Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees and signs, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head, brain and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Taurus is pretty steady, but Chiron in Pisces is psychic at seeing what ails you. Might be food  – breads, cheese, sweets. Your body may be enormously physically strong, but too much of the wrong foods can trip you up, slow you down, cause tummy and other issues. Chiron looks at how that all can affect your attractiveness, self esteem, financial acuity, relationships – both lovers and children, your ability to take care of elders you love.

On a 51 year cycle, when Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, Taurus may be surprised to find ways to exercise that pleases them! Could be a bike ride, a ground covering walk in the woods! With Chiron in Aries, healing will speed up at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with at times unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance! Aries intends to get right to it and Aries will be happily lead the way with innovative physical therapy, exercise techniques, movement businesses will flourish. Taurus may find himself opening a gym with weights, competitive sports – boxing, martial arts. Chiron will show him new ways to do business, how to have relationships best suited to his Spirit, how to teach on the fly! 9 Years! They will congratulate each other for all the accomplishments – if they have time, LOL!

SATURN builds from 2 to 20 Capricorn. Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better or you start your own business!


Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 2 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through May 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn feels the support of fellow Earth sign Taurus. Taurus may be pushed by take-it-on Capricorn, but their intents are harmonious. Taurus wants a safe and comfortable home with good organic food in the kitchen. It knows the value of feeling well and having quality fare. Saturn will make demands and Taurus is willing to step up to the plate. Saturn realizes the value of experience and being steady under fire and is well pleased with Taurus’s contribution. Taurus may find themselves comfortably picking up the pace, especially with Capricorn’s expert time saving expertise. Saturn is grateful for Taurus’s dependability and loyalty. On both sides, be sure wages are fair and equitable for these benefits. 

JUPITER moves from 13 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!

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

Jupiter is a fire planet ready to inspire Taurus with its long vision. Taurus is Scorpio’s opposite sign. Taurus prefers their steady routine, so Jupiter needs to place it’s ideas in Taurus territory with a little care. Bring it to them bit by bit so they get used to it. Expect it to take a little extra time as you honor your friend’s needs to think things through. It’s not for anyone to win, but to do what works in your hearts. It can be a relief that you don’t expect everything to happen all at once. Early on, introduce your plan and make those steps realistic to the person at hand. If you try to be clever and trick your Taurus, that might work for awhile, but there is a core person in Taurus that won’t be used or abused. You might end up losing more than you ventured. On the other hand, let’s say it’s a plan you both can get behind, no matter how long it takes. They like your invitation and put heart and hoof into it! They offer steady support, telling key people how it makes fundamental good sense, and right behind them, you can do the fundraising.

Jupiter, Sagittarius’ planet, in Sagittarius, wants to share knowledge! Taurus believes in schooling, the more sensible the better. You may have to take them on a few journeys to see other ways of living, techniques of teaching at other schools. If they are pleased, they may fund the hospital teaching wing, or the church classrooms with daycare provided. If you travel, make your Taurus comfy and bring their favorite foods and blankies. Trains are lovely, the land is soothing to see. Get off the train, out of the car for walk breaks. Jupiter is always wanting to raise standards, are more all encompassing. It’s important to show your Taurus how this personally affects them and their loved ones. Programs for a cleaner planet, better land use, protecting pristine land and resources will go well with them. Ethics are important to Jupiter, the greater truth, higher meaning. Talk philosophy, sustainability. You may be surprised by the exchange. Jupiter helps us stretch, has robust health, generally lives long and prospers! Taurus may be impressed, or just not even notice. So point it out how they can translate that into their own lives, or to someone they love. Sometimes Tauruses are working with such dedication you have to open the door yourself.

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundant and better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and marriages are quite possible.
