Cancer! Timeless Love… 

Cancer Divine Feminine Masque Four Seasons Walter Crane

Universal recognition of Divine Feminine ~ Maiden, Mother, Crone. A Masque for the Four Seasons, by Walter Crane, 1905-1909, oil on canvas

Love that crosses the generations is a precious chain of connection. Mother to daughter; daughter to child, child to their child. Though Cancer is the sign of Women, feminine, there are dear Cancer Men who are sensitive, highly educated, want to provide well, love their families above all else. Father to son, son to child, child to child. That love is cultural, develops genetically. It gets deeper and richer as time goes on. We become experts of our heritage, are proud to pass it on, hope it survives changing times. When we leave the fold, we take it with us and share it, expanding it into other’s hearts, integrating it with their cultural heritage and they share their heritage with us! We prosper together so many ways.

Love that develops as we age crosses our entire lifetime…

The Miracle, the Babe in arms…  There is nothing so deeply precious as birth, and the purity of an innocent newborn. We are touched beyond words. We see the vulnerability and feel our responsibility like never before. One tiny smile and we are melted for life. We take that tiny hand in ours and a profound lifetime bond is formed.

Maidens are full of life’s zest! They have a radiance that shines, are inspiring with their charm. Even the old men are enchanted! They remember when… Maidens have a purity of Spirit, are a bit naive, and that calls us to protect them. They bring new ideas to living and loving, making homes that their mothers didn’t, and mothers may envy. Maidens look for companions of heroic standing. Could be the Hunter, could be the office computer guy, or a leader of our times. These days many a Maiden has her own business and ups the ante. She wants an equal. A strong Father for her children who can secure the finances, get shelter for her family, who loves her Mother and will take her Mother in when Mom becomes a Crone.

Mother! Down deep, few have more power in our lives than our Mother, even if we didn’t get along. We long for a better connection. If she was lost in childbirth, we miss her. If our parents separate, we miss their connection. We unconsciously take on ways, mannerisms we think would be hers/theirs together. This amazing woman carried us in her womb, held our life in her hands. She feeds us, holds us when we have a bad dream, comforts our hurts, shows us how to potty and put on our clothes. We see her give our Pa astute advice as she comforts him too. She teaches us compassion, how to be a good person. If she’s not good at it herself, we somehow know that and if we aren’t too broken, vow to learn on our own. One way or another, she teaches us.

Wise Woman Crone, Council of Elders, Spiritual Caregivers  While strong and experienced, the body is giving way to transition. Some live fragilely, needing help; others rule with an iron fist, as if they will live forever, their own person to the end! They must be right, yes? After all, they lived that long. Yet there are those many roads to the mountain top, the edge of the world. Some are traditional, a 100% authentic basic element. Others are leaders of the new times, still carrying the village torches through the night, leading us through the darkest times! A balance is in progress between the old and new ideas that pass us by. Cancers absorb their lifetimes and have learned so much that at times they are adept at giving council. As elders, they also naturally share the Council of others in their age zone. They see perspectives others will never have, being born long ago in the times they lived. They see the consequences of certain ways and neglected matters. Cancer is the sign of intuitive cycles. They have developed a fine instinct about change and how to do it well. Listen with respect then do what is right for you.

Matriarch.  A Crone may become the Matriarch. The Family looks up to her as the eldest. She prays to do well for them. ‘Tis a great honor to be so blessed. Stand tall. Keep learning. You may roar your message or be exceedingly kind and gentle. It may take many times or be an instant hit. Choose best times to connect. Don’t neglect. We need your voice soonest. Always pray ‘Let the highest be done.’ That’s divine protection that they will take it as is best for them. Your message may simply be for getting them to think, kindling for the fire, a stepping stone to their true need. The higher Spirits, Angels, will guide you always. Thank you.

Cancer Moon Goddess - Artist Josephine WallThese precious cycles happen for men too, though commonly they are not named as such. We call them young men, Fathers, old men – without particular reverence. The Mankind Project helps men celebrate coming of age, provides initiations to the honorable stages of men’s lives, helps them attain self respect, develop givingness to others, and much more. Baby boys are adorable too. They become spirited young men, eager to find their own way, to love, to become good shareholders, contributors to the enterprise, to be active in planetary action. They can become dear husbands, dedicated Fathers to our children, guardians of our society. As wise elder men, mentors, they guide younger men coming along, the next generation. They teach life skills, save us time, get us to think more efficiently. Bless and be grateful to our champions.

Daily Companions  Cancers are treasured companions. They laugh and mourn with us. They tell us when we are really being ridiculous and we listen because we know they care ~ and likely there is a grain of truth in what they are saying. We cook, break bread and give each other recipe books, remodel the kitchen together! It’s really the recipe of Life we are learning. Shopping is terrific, comparing prices, getting important things we will use daily, baby clothes to antique furniture. Buying a home together is ultimate. No nook or cranny is overlooked when a Cancer is around. Art, music and family photos fill our homes and hearts. It’s great to share Meaningful Milestones! First date, prom. Off to college, first job. Marriages, first home, first baby, first teeth, all the graduations! Pictures and albums, mementos are sweet documents. One day you might find yourself mining the genealogy of your ancestors!

Sacred Goddess Gaia, Earth Mother  In the highest sense of the Divine Feminine, we look to taking care of our planet and humanity. Our Planet is our home. She needs care ~ clean air and water, safe living conditions, protected creatures, plants. Motherhood takes on new dimensions as the whole planet gets connected through the internet. We are becoming a world village and realize what affects one, affects us all as it ripples through and around us. We learn from each other. We act collectively as climate changes happen. We realize the talents, values each has to share. Some things will be technological while others will take us back to the simplest basics, like being able to grow our own food.

Blessed be every day of your sweet life…

Cancer 2019 Celestial Highlights!  

Astronomy 7.12.19 Sun Cancer - Moon Jupiter with Antares

This is going to be pretty! July 12,13,14 Moon with Jupiter and Antares! 

On the evenings of July 12, 13 and 14, 2019, watch for the bright waxing gibbous moon to swing by the giant planet Jupiter. Fortunately, the king planet is so bright that this world can easily withstand the lunar glare. After all, Jupiter is the 4th-brightest light in the heavens, after the sun, moon and planet Venus. Venus is a morning object, virtually lost in the sun’s glare now, so there’s no way to mistake Venus for Jupiter in the July evening sky.

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

Thank you always to Doug McClure at EarthSky!

Cancer Overview of Year to Come!

Cancer Women of 116th Congress 2018 Midterm Elections

The 116th Congress is the most diverse in history: 126 women take office, including 43 women of color. Yet this new diversity is confined to one party. Let’s build, further diversify. Support your women, ALL women! Here’s why!

June 16 and 18 Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune were together again, closely and retrograde this time. The first set was at 14 degrees. They were at 18 degrees. First Jupiter, immediately followed, by, with, Saturn. Jupiter off in the square – yes and no. Saturn said I see the part of this that has value, how can we make that happen? Now they are laying back until fall, but are continuously close in degrees. They finish Sep 21 Jupiter, Nov 8 Saturn. After the Sep aspect they part company, but both the Sep and Nov aspects are at 16 degrees!  So it goes 14, 18, 16 degrees. If you have chart factors at 16 degrees you will be connected to all three sets!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cancer may be hard pressed to stand strong to lay a balance to the Dec 2 entry of Jupiter into Earth sign Capricorn, it’s opposite sign. With Jupiter’s entry into Capricorn there will be 3 outer planets in Capricorn until Saturn enters Aquarius March 31, 2020! Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn July 1, 2020, and again, there will be 3 in Capricorn until Saturn makes his final shift into Aquarius Dec 16, 2020. Saturn will be in his own, more conservative sign Capricorn for the presidential elections. Jupiter and Saturn are both high mountain lovers, so looks like it’s going to be fun for some! Jupiter will make the travel plans; Cap will build the lodge! Jupiter quickly sees potential, offers encouragement, gathers the backers. Capricorn is ace at putting the right pieces together with terrific timing. Successful champions! The job comes in early, and the results are impressive! See more about Jupiter in Capricorn!

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

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

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

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

April 4, 2020 starts a three time Jupiter conjunct Pluto sequence. Whatever demons or glory, tragedies or triumphs formidable Saturn shall have faced, Jupiter will optimistically pick up the pieces, repurpose. Pluto will see the promise of profit financially and spiritually. It will be an explosion of clearing for future works, secrets discovered, major funding attained, ‘keepsakes’ will be in the plans to be built ~ like a mini renaissance, yet more secrets will be made too. Bad will be healed, the rest is hallelujah! LOTS of big news! Super power plays will abound as the Nov 3 Presidential Election approaches.

The opposite pole April 4 through June 29 is it will be mass tragedy. More powerful secrets made, concealment and lies to cover. Be ready to help, protect yourself and others until this period passes after another 5 years. Seriously start making alliances with capable and trusted family, friends and associates now. Keep your emergency kit and supplies up to date for on-the-ground environmental conditions likely in your area, have a plan in mind. The aspects will hold at 24 to 26 Capricorn. If you have factors at or very close to those degrees you may be called into action. Challenges for Aries, Libra and Cancer, Gemini and Leo. More easy for Taurus and Virgo, Scorpio and Pisces.

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

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

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

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background until 2021… In Cancer’s coming year they are exact only once in their new signs Aries/Taurus at Valentine’s time, Feb 15! See more about Chiron/Uranus 

See the 2019 UPDATED Special Annual Edition Newsletter for making next year’s plans! Make your changes count.

Outer Planet Transits with Cancer 2019 – June 2020!

Cancer 2019 Oakland CA Painted Ladies Victorian Remodel

Oakland CA’s Painted Ladies! Victorian homes can be transformed inside and out! Maybe you will buy your first home this year or remodel the one you have. Remodeling is quite an adventure that ups that resale value and can make your home a great pleasure to live in!

OUTER PLANETS WITH CANCER

Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter

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

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

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

Pluto in Cap can seem like regular business to Cancers. Pluto is the water planet of Scorpio; Cancer too is a water sign. Cancer and Capricorn rule the home/career signs, the axis of Mother/Father. They coexist, always aware of each other, separate but interdependent. Mom needs Cap’s shelter; Papa needs Cancer’s nurturing. Cap helps keep Cancer from going too emotional. Cancer reminds Cap to be aware of human feelings. Pluto clears, heals, restores the balance. He scans for discrepancies, weak spots, adds love and power at times it is most needed. Pluto’s alliances can be gathered to help Cancer’s community efforts to protect women and children, fund educational projects, preserve basic family mores, raise our standards. Pluto can partner with us, teach us investment techniques until we can fund ourselves!

NEPTUNE is in his own sign Pisces. He is a water planet in the last water sign, the last 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 15 to 20 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Neptune and Cancer are both artists, music lovers, ones who help others. Neptune adds to Cancer’s already strong ‘psychic’ ability, showing us the greater dreams of all humanity. Cancers can be very focused on their own culture and family, yet find a lot can be shared with people of other cultures. Cultural difference may present no danger at all! That difference can be a blessed asset each gives. Neptune shows Cancers how amazing and wonderful the nutrition Cancers can teach is. It can heal people with various disorders, drug problems, how prevention is so valuable. Neptune knows how valuable safe comfortable shelter is that Cancer can help provide. So many are suffering without basic clean water… And Neptune’s dreams and visions are so very personal we are inspired beyond what we ever thought could be. How could we have forgotten what we once longed for so dearly?

URANUS, Aquarius’s planet, covers 2 to 9 Taurus! In Taurus it will anchor and build on change worthy ideas that need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network. They need to be cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, so they can effortlessly be carried on. A lot of earth changes we are witnessing are massive, coming suddenly, hot and heavy. The very land is changing, affecting food supplies and location choices about where to live. There is a lot of instability financially. We need to have backup funds, supplies, stay flexible. See more about the Aries to Taurus sign change.

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

Cancer is hawk-eye watching things unfold in every direction. Change isn’t always welcome at first. Traditions we relied on as givens are fading quickly. In many situations there will be little time to think it over, fewer choices. Good thing Cancers are intuitive and fast on their feet. Cancer is quick to see an opportunity, be first to sign up for the new class, get the new instructor! Foods are taking on new meaning, whether you grow it yourself, learn how it affects your body, is a natural remedy. Fresh and organic are worth it. Farsighted choices of land areas, could mean buying before prices rise. What you choose as an investment now may become quite valuable later on for personal use. Water will be a #1 factor. Children will ever be important. Uranus may make remarkable electronics available. Uranian genius may find new ways to live basic skills. Being well connected with Earth may save our lives.

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

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

Chiron in Aries may come in good will, but be a little too pushy for Mom sign Cancer! Harrumph. Chiron is feeling his oats. He has often held the back seat, and it’s his turn now to stand up! Chiron is trying on some new healing ingredients and techniques. Cancer’s Mom told her the healing practices her mother’s mother’s mother told her. So listen, maybe give the new stuff a try, you can always go back, or, hey, maybe show Chiron how they might be integrated. Some of those old remedies have worked for centuries, you know. Don’t let yourself be rushed. Pay attention to the new business skills offered. Chiron, quick in Aries, may be long gone, but you find the best of what he had to offer does work. Be cautious of marriage offers. Cancer wants security. Aries may promise, but not be able to do it. In Aries, Chiron can do a successful startup so quickly you can hardly believe it! If he remains in leadership, it can be challenging enough for him to hold and stay, opening branches, a franchise. That could work for Cancer. But don’t be surprised if he opens further and different types of businesses!

SATURN builds from 13 Capricorn to 1 Aquarius!

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

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 13 to 29 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through March 21, 2020! There will be more traditional endeavors.

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

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

Cancer has always been Capricorn’s equal no matter how women’s voting and property rights have been legally. Capricorn can’t do without the woman in their lives to care for them and their children. Capricorn essentially works for Cancer. And she needs his provision of shelter, earnings for upkeep, especially while she is having the babies. Though they have different demeanors, Cancer soft, Capricorn no nonsense, they have the same goals. It’s hard to preach to a Cancer about being frugal when they are already secretly putting grocery $ aside for the kids, a new coat, college education. Capricorn really already knows he depends on Cancer’s intuitive feelings, so he says one thing to her while wanting her to help him anyway. Raising kids can be a challenge between them. Capricorn wants his boys to be strong, a credit to the community and Father’s standing. Too much ‘coddling’ makes him afraid, at heart, that his boy will be bullied, not able to stand up for himself, do life’s business, and that’s generally not a good thing. And for girls to be be Daddy’s girl is not always a good thing either. Cancers, do your best. Learn more about these matters. Otherwise, if you are out in the business world yourself, a good mentor is always a blessing. Watch how the successful ones do things. Be sure they are good people, not in it for greed and lost their Souls. Stay in your heart. It matters to your children.

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

Cancer still feels the Saturn hand in things, but in Aquarius it is more progressive, lighter and at times Saturn laughs and it’s a frolic! Who would have thought?! Saturn can be a real comedian! He’s been there and knows the problems. Aquarius is off in space or kinky crazy, usually a bit of both. If the humanitarian side comes through, it’s big potatoes time! Guided by Saturn’s business skills, it’s networking to the max. Cancer is totally onboard with this, an excellent business person themselves! Watching the big guys do their stuff is impressive and Cancer, quick on the uptake, uses their model quite well! Saturn in Aquarius works planetary media; Cancer get the story to the community, the women. Saturn takes charge of current evolution, the science of gathering Souls to make necessary change just as fast as possible. The climate isn’t waiting for anyone, and Cancer understands the gravity of sudden land changes. It isn’t a time to be too old fashioned. Data is checked and rechecked. Important connections are made at local levels, arranging exchanges and discussions of techniques. Aquarius introduces Cancer to history makers! Wanting to serve them well and personally make history, Cancer improves his skills, seeks the most potent media places to plant their stories that the information can spread quickly. It invites others to keep the stories and sharing going. It’s a great life recipe!

JUPITER moves from 14 Sagittarius to 27 Capricorn

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

Jupiter in Sag and Cancer both highly value education. Jupiter is university level education; Cancer is a lifelong learner, course after course. Jupiter travels worldwide while Cancer is a homebody. Jupiter does imports/exports, publishes travel guides, while Cancer runs the restaurant, buys and sells real estate, runs community services businesses. Jupiter often doesn’t marry; Cancer has kids of their own and adoptees too! Jupiter seeks meaning while Cancer trusts tradition. So Jupiter may tease Cancer into thinking more about why what ‘truth’ is these days, who to get it from, check its integrity. The info might go public, into a textbook, guide life’s travelers. Is it for time out entertainment or timely to save the planet, our children and homes? Accuracy could be crucial. Does it have a spark of the exotic that catches our attention, is it funny even if serious? If Cancer thinks an update is important, they can draw siblings, neighbors, community into united action in as little as a few days! Cancer intuits the most effective links, introduces then around the table.

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

Jupiter in Capricorn can exaggerate the rules, but he and Cancer, who wants security, will likely work something out reasonably. Jupiter has big ideas, could be a bit demanding and feel it is his right to demand hard work for important purposes. Cancer knows her priorities. Children, home first, then we’ll talk. Jupiter has that great big smile, you know – happy to know you, and people can’t resist doing what they can for him. Jupiter often has great success, so it’s worth the effort, and Jupiter is working for more to come! This is just the foundation investment for the future. Cancer remains cautious, not generally taken in by merely a pretty face, especially a stranger’s. Cancer may at times have a ‘baby’ face, but she raises kids, you know! She’s rulemaker and taskmaster, so you better worth your salt! But if Cancer feels to go ahead, will give it his all. Cancer has community connections and an All American 4th of July appeal. Jupiter in Capricorn may bring that to a greater height yet! Cancer will stay loyal as long as everyone’s highest good is the order of the day. Jupiter does need to travel. He may be back or perhaps it may be wiser to hire him as a consultant…one who comes and goes. Jupiter needs to have plenty of air space or the butterfly will be gone and no matter how impressive, you will be forgotten. Cancer, ever the understanding Mother, is kind. Jupiter did get a lot done in a short time, Cancer treasures the new expertise, will long remember how that it was done, the exciting time together.

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

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

Happy Birthdays, Cancers! We are ever grateful for your care!

Cancer Solar Eclipse New Moon!

Tuesday July 2 Cancer Solar Eclipse New Moon at 12:16 PM Pacific, 10 Cancer 38 

Moon’s Nodes, Saturn. Mars/Mercury Leo! Pluto at 1/12/20 Saturn conjunct Pluto degree! 

Solar Eclipse 8.21.17 Phases Jasman Mander Oregon

The Great American Eclipse 8.21.17 by Oregon photographer Jasman Lion Mander! Note the Diamond Ring effect on either side of totality! 

Cancer TOTAL SOLAR Eclipse, South America, Chile and Argentina. Per Earthsky, this is first total solar eclipse since the great American total solar eclipse of August 21, 2017. It will be the last total eclipse of the sun to grace Earth’s sky until December 14, 2020. See the details at EarthSky!

Moon is in her own sign! Sun is brightening her day! Moon is warmed, sees into her own legacy, feels comfortable to release some of her past. She is always learning, growing, certain fears are behind her now that she sees she is capable of taking care of herself. There is always a little girl, little boy part of every Cancer. Trusting yourself means you can include more people who have different ideas, or ways not like your family’s. Moon makes that 27/28 day cycle 12 to 13 times a year. She takes in all the signs; she circles your entire chart! She sees the linkages, the collective interaction. She has been gathering information, giving as she can as she has gone along. She makes lots of adjustments, each sign so different and specialized. She takes the pulse of the people from all walks of life. When she meets Sun, he sees what she has accumulated – awareness of accomplishments, shortcomings, needs that need meeting. She ‘reports’ to Sun in the sky, at each of the new moons in different signs during the year. Sun floods her with Light energy and she is recharged for her next cycle. He appreciates her perceptiveness and caring and is himself restored by her faith in him. It’s a regenerative time. With a New Moon Eclipse it is super potent because their lineup is exact in the same sign! This time they are BEING Cancer! Have a gathering of your cherished Cancer friends! 

Cancer assesses our familial axis, our feelings, if they are still true over time. Cancer seeks learning, an understanding of these primal cycles that are such a deep part of our lives. We take another look at our nurturing skills and their application as mother, father, caregiver. We look at our living quarters. Do we live in peace, comfortably in our homes, in a good way with others? It’s a perfect time to make assessments, put things into perspective as they have developed through our lifetime up to now. Keep these things in mind as you face challenges. How we take care of ourselves, our daily upkeep, develops the habits of keeping up to date, awareness of tending ourselves as keenly as we tend our children. It is spiritually our daily food, important because it determines the long term outcome, our thinking, our health, our satisfaction! It gives our children a supermodel to follow!

The New Moon most closely, by standard aspects, is opposite Saturn, the planet of Cancer’s opposite sign Capricorn! There is a censor in the room. Mythologically Saturn is a man, but as an Earth planet is considered to be feminine. There is a soft underbelly, a vulnerability. This is a good time for them to communicate across the kitchen table. Father Sun and Chief Saturn both want dominance. Set that aside for a few minutes and just listen to each other. Think it over and come back later. There will be value in both sides. Sun wants to be himself and be released from antiquated laws. Saturn feels secure with laws, wants to be respected, knows times change. Sun can go in with admiration and gratitude for how Saturn held it all together. Saturn can go in as an equal, grateful for Sun’s courage to test new ways. Sun’s radiance can help us step up, to see the way! 

Saturn is at the Moon’s South Node while Moon and Sun approach the opposite point, the North Node. Fate is afoot. Many think Saturn is the past, even past karma. Moon and her sign Cancer are thought to be what we came from in past lives. The Nodes are the Moon’s nodes! For some there is an awareness of past lives, and some have a photographic memory of early happenings of this life! To make that more indelible, Moon and Saturn rule Mother and Father, those most of us knew from our earliest existence. If not, we wished for them, missed what we would never have. At this time there is a bit of a shake down. How were things really? Did one or the other parent favor us or us glorify one of them? It takes a certain maturity to see every person as a human with goodness and faults and foibles. When we are strong enough, we can afford to admit our own faults, and the faults of loved ones we depended on, that it’s ok, even lovable, to be human.  

In case you were wondering, yes, Saturn and Pluto have been closely and intensely together since January. Saturn has retrograded and is faster than Pluto, so their challenges are lessening for now. Saturn is not one to forget what needs doing. He’s committed and reliable, so though leaving Pluto, will still be tending the projects. Being retrograde, he will see what was missed before, is now more ready to take on some of that unfinished business. Pluto brings up financial matters, power, deeper relationships, life and death, healing. Saturn wants right rules – laws, hard work, building, reality checks, picking up the pieces and renovation. 

The first pair of aspects Saturn and Jupiter made to Neptune were at 14 degrees. June 16 and 18 they were at 18 degrees. They will lay back until fall, but are continuously close in degrees. They finish Sep 21 Jupiter, Nov 8 Saturn. After the Sep aspect they part company, but both the Sep and Nov aspects are at 16 degrees!  So it goes 14, 18, 16 degrees. If you have chart factors 15 to 17 degrees you will be connected to all three! Jupiter has been encouraging Neptune to expand his vision. Saturn has been looking to see how it can all be done the most efficiently!

Saturn and Jupiter with Neptune June 16 and 18 brought us to review and strengthen our techniques, be reminded of the potency of Earth’s situation. Business, beliefs, posterity have all been on our minds. Jupiter brings the truth to old denials. He keeps the perspective of the big picture in mind and our intentions for the future guide our every choice. Jupiter is readying our plans and preparations. Learning and teaching are needed now to be in place for when we or others are ready for the next step. Be flexible and keep the faith! 

Mercury entered big hearted Leo the 26th. Fast spirited Mars is fresh, entered Leo the afternoon before the New Moon. Though Mercury is faster, they are close. He speaks with Mars over his shoulder, giving a few ideas of what to expect. These frisky two are proud in fiery Leo, ready to try some new things with flare and style! Square Uranus, the planet of Change, can be both formidable and fun! The task is large. Uranus is the planet of humanitarianism and Taurus is Earth herself! It’s a big calling. They can be shocked or pleased to be handed such a job worth of their abilities. Mercury in Leo likes to get the word out in volume, get people’s attention, center stage with bright lights, full entertainment mode! Mars is undaunted, fearless and heroic! He can be the athletic champion leading the parade! They do like to do it their own way, by their trademark style, and Mars is independent. Tell them what you need, get out of their way, let them work it out! Done in a flash!

While Mercury and Mars are out pushing the boundaries, Venus is about to change signs from Gemini to Cancer, the next morning, sweetening Cancer’s month. Graciously say what you need to get said, then be ready to listen to the kids, fix a gourmet meal or two, try a new recipe, talk with the Mamas and Papas. Crochet some lace for the bride’s dress. Business could be good as what you sell is prettied up. Cancer is a great sign of business, cycles, things we need on a daily basis. Do a little conservative safe investing. At the end of the day welcome intrepid Mercury and Mars back home! They will need some TLC – a good meal and a comforter. Being at full spirited tilt is a complete workout, body, mind and Soul.

Chiron in Aries & Uranus in Taurus continue humming along. They are will be completing their 13 years long journey in 2021. For now they are closely together in the background…a small but potent aspect. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus 


Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently part of!

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

Pluto is now at 22 Capricorn, that degree and sign! 

Pluto will be at 23° when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the January, March 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! Two sides of the same coin. They will both be happening at once symbolically. There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential election because they are precisely astrologically linked to it! Again, some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Those of you with factors in your charts close to 18 and 22/23 and 27 degrees will be connected to these world events. You can help or hinder or be hindered and helped! We’re counting on you to be keepers of the important informations, sacred wisdom, that are transmitted at these times – even if those are difficult times for you. You are the Guardians and will distribute valuable portions of information in potent places where it will do the most good, be effective. We honor your place, for being here this way for us.

The empathy of your Caring is more appreciated than you will ever know! Thank you.

Capricorn-Cancer Lunar Triple Eclipse Full Buck Moon! 

Tuesday July 16 at 2:38 PM Pacific 24 Capricorn/Cancer 04 

12 Day Moon, Saturn, Pluto, Moon’s Nodes Sequence of Conjunctions & Oppositions – Triple Eclipse! Three Fixed Stars!

Capricorn Cancer Lunar Eclipse Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway Heiko Junge

Lunar Eclipse at Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway by Heiko Junge

Also called a Blood Moon, Partial LUNAR Eclipse, visible mainly in Africa, not visible in North America. Check the net for live coverage! 

Full Moon! Hearts open wide, hands across the table. Moon in Capricorn, Sun in Cancer. Moon is discreet in Capricorn, a bit formal perhaps, cares about its work, takes responsibilities seriously. She sweetly gives eldercare, makes sure everyone at work eats on time and well. Moon in Cap is frugal and doesn’t waste time. She capitalizes on the regs and expects standards to be kept. Children are encouraged to do their chores, contribute to family needs. When able she contributes to research, especially nutritional research and home technology for better sustainable living. Moon can be in charge of construction crews, at times, all women groups!

Sun in Cancer cheers her on, lighting the way to new connections with a further reach into the community! Moon and Capricorn, music and composers, may combine their sounds. Exotic rhythms, sometimes bluesy, sometimes indigenous. Or its the kitchen and housekeeping music that gets us through the day with satisfaction! Sun in Cancer makes us proud to be a Mother, at home, at work, of the world! That recognition of feelings we all share, makes us allow the flow of our lives, the ups and downs. It makes us feel ok about ourselves, the natural human we are. Family culture comforts. The traveler’s home away from home lets us see the universal human family, that we are not always as different as we thought. Mementos remind us of happy shared moments.

An Eclipse! Earth is in the middle, Sun on one side, Moon in Earth’s shadow on the other. We are getting rays from both directions! Moon has her multitudinous energy of diversity she has gathered as she traversed all the signs as she does every month! She’s good at that. No wonder she can be such a great commodities trader! She knows the mood of the majority of the people and what they need! In Capricorn there is special compensation for doing well, building strong lives and community. If you feel a little intimidated by their keen eye, that’s good. We know you are wanting to do your best. Sun just C Major shines! Cancer can be a bit shy at times, but the Sun gets her up every morning. She makes that stretch like a cat, gets the rest of us up, breakfast is in the making! He does what the day requires. Awesome. He loves us up, more than we expected. Feels good.

This full Moon is in a tight sequence of aspects that will keep us on our toes. You can’t really say, other than an astronomical phenomena, that this Full Moon is on one day at that certain time. It’s pattern starts at least 5 days before July 9, just after the New Moon Solar Eclipse, as the Sun moves to the Moon’s Nodes, opposite Saturn at the South Node! It Involves repeated aspects to Pluto, Saturn, Neptune and the Moon’s Nodes. The sequence of aspects finishes July 21 when Venus opposes Pluto. It’s intense since it involves heavy hitters Pluto and Saturn and the planets involved are fully aware of each other in conjunction and opposite points!

Triple Eclipse! With Saturn and Capricorn of Karma and Dharma, Pluto in Capricorn – a powerful antagonist and protagonist, the Moon of the Past and ancestral memories – lots of deep emotions, the Moon’s Nodes – an important axis of balance of past and present/future, you can see the depth of this Eclipse! Not only is it a Lunar Eclipse, but Moon also occults (eclipses) Saturn and Pluto! It’s like a triple Eclipse! So we have direct shots not only between Moon, Sun and Earth, but also Moon, Saturn, Pluto and Earth! Open up your perception to receive the profound information channeled at this time. Cleanse and take good care of yourself in preparation. Fortify yourself and be in a safe place so you can feel free to be vulnerable.

In addition to three Eclipses, the Full Moon is connected by a T Square with three Fixed Stars! The Sun is between Pollux and Procyon at 23 and 25 Cancer, opposite Moon, and Arcturus squares them from the T point at 24 Libra! Arcturus can act as a scanner, sender and/or receive transmissions it dispurses to the others. Cancer Sun and Moon Capricorn are already activating parental and partner factors. These Stars will bring more subtle factors into play as well. Pollux is one of the Gemini Twins, is considered to be the ‘immortal’ Twin. With the Sun, he is considered to have ‘Occult and theosophical interests,’ or per Elsbeth Ebertin, be ‘the wicked boy.’ Just as Mars has its good sides, if the energy it creates is channeled constructively, so can Pollux. Procyon is THE star of Canis Minor, Orion’s smaller hunting dog. It’s name comes from ‘Rising before Sirius, The Dog in Front.’ Author Robson says ‘Great help from friends, gifts and legacies if not afflicted, military preferment after great struggles and expense. If rising or culminating, kingly preferment.’

Arcturus at the T point mojo position, ‘has been an object of the highest interest and admiration to all observant mankind from the earliest times.’ Being the 4th brightest star, Seamen used it in navigation. But some gave it a ‘stormy reputation’ as well. In challenging aspects, like this one, being from Libra of the law, Ebertin says ‘If involved in legal action, such a native may lose all.’ Pay attention and use your own intuition. There is so much more to read about the Fixed Stars. See this site, or another of your preference. There are several good ones. 
 
For those whose charts that have factors in the Eclipse Pathway, 12 to 27 degrees, at some point your name will be called. The whole kit and caboodle will be a lot to take in while Mercury is retrograde 4 Leo back to 23 Cancer, changing our perspectives about ourselves while in Leo, and of our parents and culture while in Cancer! Keep your hip waders handy and hang onto your shovel since a lot of debris will be cleared out! But, for now, just put it aside until at least four days after Mercury goes direct the 31st. After that time things will become more clear and you won’t throw something away you wish you hadn’t! 

Scan this timetable, Pacific zone dates – all during Mercury Retrograde! 

July 9 Sun opposite Saturn activating the Moon’s Nodal axis, South Node with Saturn – Sun faces responsibilities, how to build his life, both past and present. Saturn, the planet of the South Node’s sign Capricorn, is metering the applications, updating old skills. 

10  Sun trine Neptune – putting our heart with our dream

11  Mars in Leo trine Chiron, square Uranus – first leader to try a new healing remedy. Be careful, don’t force the issue. Sometimes quicker is better, but be careful!

14  Sun opposite Pluto – a deeper awareness of mortality, money, masters, love or loss

15  Moon opposite Venus in Cancer – consider different values, giving up a wish, reaching out

16  0:18 AM Pacific Moon conjunct/occults Saturn – Saturn is Moon’s ‘opposite’ planet. Saturn channels the blueprint for Cancer to follow.

16  2:05 AM Moon conjunct South Node – old habits may need adjusting; some excellent talents may be brought to bear

16  10:16 AM Moon conjunct/occults Pluto – Pluto channels the deepest power of life and death, sharing love and money

16  2:38 PM Full Buck Moon, Moon opposite Sun, Lunar Eclipse

16  Venus opposite Saturn – old ways may stabilize, distancing could save the day, accept the help

17  Venus conjunct Moon’s North Node – a merger, a blessed feminine step forward, the chef wins the award!

18  Venus inconjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius, trine Neptune in Pisces – adjusting to greater possibilities, a shift in direction. Soulmates, the dream may come true, believe in yourself

      Saturn Rx, though still close, is leaving the sextile with Neptune. They have been getting things done!

      Jupiter Rx is leaving the square with Neptune… We have been letting go of denial, seeing greater possibilities!

21  Venus opposite Pluto – seeing a greater depth of possibilities in the great vortex of life! Letting go of what ‘hurt’ us, allowing a healing connection from a safe distance. 

This is a super brief synopsis. Books are written about these. What makes this more important is the repeated aspects to Saturn, Neptune, Pluto and the Moon’s Nodes! They are acting concurrently in a group.

Mercury at 1 Leo retrograde came close, but didn’t make either the square with Uranus or trine Chiron! There were almost ‘accidents’ that just faded away, a friend that didn’t quite happen, the hoped for change didn’t become, a meeting not made. With Chiron, there were ambiguous hints of invitations, but if you went, there was no one there… To further put those in the past, Mercury is about to go back into Cancer the 19th at 0:07 AM Pacific. The Leo stuff will likely be forgotten.

July 11 Mars square Uranus, trine Chiron culminated. That square was frisky, and was coming to its height during the New Moon Solar Eclipse! The trine with Chiron probably saved the day with healing, possibly avoiding, any dangerous circumstances. Now, Mars is effortlessly running along in Leo. He will be steadily in trine the next 9 days with Jupiter, exact the 25th. Lucky new beginnings! Spirited action in behalf of super plans, travel, education! This is one of those bigger-than-life times! Independence, leadership, Initiation! Be there! Take the training, move your life, step UP!

Chiron in Aries & Uranus in Taurus continue humming along. They are will be completing their 13 years long journey in 2021. For now they are closely together in the background…a small but potent aspect. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus 

Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently part of!

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

Pluto is now at 21 Capricorn, one degree of that 22! 

Pluto will be at 23° when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the January, March 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! Two sides of the same coin. They will both be happening at once symbolically. There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential election because they are precisely astrologically linked to it! Again, some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Those of you with factors in your charts close to 18 and 22/23 and 27 degrees will be connected to these world events. You can help or hinder or be hindered and helped! We’re counting on you to be keepers of the important informations, sacred wisdom, that are transmitted at these times – even if those are difficult times for you. You are the Guardians and will distribute valuable portions of information in potent places where it will do the most good, be effective. We honor your place, for being here this way for us.

Open your Spirit wide to receive and embrace the energies of both Eclipses! Thank you always.

Mercury Retrograde Cancer Leo 2019 Trollstigen, Troll's Ladder Norway

Norway’s west coast – the Trollstigen Pass Road, Troll’s Ladder, famous with 11 hairpin bends! Thank goodness Mercury RXs have only two hairpins!

Some retrogrades are more dangerous than others. If you like fast driving like some Leos do, it’s by choice, exhilarating. Cancers prefer comfort rather than fear. They will be saving money driving the camper while the Leos are deliciously extravagantly in the convertible Jaguar or traveling in a humongous luxury motor home!

2019’s second of 3 retrogrades starts in Cancer, retrogrades in Leo – Mother Moon and Father Sun’s signs. It goes back into Cancer then into Leo for the final lap. Cancer might drive like their mothers, while Leo drives for the prize money! Well, this time we get a double drive in two signs. They will definitely feel different. The transition from one to the other may be the actual challenge. We are left in the sign of our Self, our own radiance, Leo, the sign of the Heart. They are lovers, creative, generous. They intend to be teachers, whether the musician in the spotlight or in the classroom. The Cancers will allow themselves a little more spice! All said and done, the Leos will be glad to go home and be fed. Showing off is hard work, LOL!

About Retrogrades!  

Whether hiking or driving magnificent mountain switchbacks, what a journey! What amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. What’s behind is out of sight, a memory; what’s ahead is a mystery! Inward bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. Promontories give us visions of the future, longings for more! Each gives us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch. It’s important that there are changes, reversals, old ideas that clogged things up are left behind, revelations occur, new ideas teased into action! Cancers like the new stove; Leos like their new buggy.

Every Retrograde is unique, per the signs, their planets, the connections made with other planets during their retrograde cycle, and, of course, the connections it makes, or doesn’t, with your personal chart! Mercury Retrogrades have three part cycles. First is the part leading up to the Retrograde station. We’re on fresh ground, curious. Second is the Rx period when it goes ‘back’ over the part leading up to the Rx. We see things from an opposite point of view and the planets around us are moving to new positions, people are changing. Adjustments are made. Third and last is the part when Mercury turns Direct, ‘forward’ again, covering that same ground the third time! We get three chances. At first we get all things in order we possibly can. Second changes and revisions are made. Third, we tidy up, polish things up, complete and present it to the world!

Cancers need to build their courage. Paired with Leo ups the odds of bravery! Cancer, a cardinal get started sign, is a bit conservative, protecting home and hearth, but can be quick to get things moving when they make up their mind. Leos are what is called a fixed sign, accused of being stubborn, and they are full of Light, so people admire them. They get away with keeping the old show that has always worked before. But times do change. They need at least three times to take it in. Letting go of the good old times is tough. But show them better and they are good to go! They will tell you it was their idea. And it was! They thought it over and decided to accept it! Just give them a little time, a lot of appreciation, and they will be with you shortly!

Cancer matters include food, where and how you live, your family, how you are feeling these days. All the daily goods, clothing, how the car works, whether you have enough money, a job that you like. It can be corporate or at the local Ma & Pa. How the kids are doing, or your parents, are high on your list, if not the highest. Food availability may change, the house may need some immediate fixing during a retrograde, Rx. Your route to work shifts. The stock market goes up and down; you may decide to shift your investments, but know that they will shift again after the Rx. The family may go through some ups and downs, especially with a mother or daughter. A surprise pregnancy and then you aren’t? Wait to propose or choose a wedding date or place. The choice of a school may get strong priority, or whether to go at all. Studying. Where to live and with whom.

Mercury in Cancer is a bit at odds with itself. Mercury is logical; Cancer is intuitive. But Mercury helps Cancer put their experiences into words, explain what happened, tell what they ‘saw,’ have amazing recall or remember from long ago. Could be time to write a memoir, discuss feminine family mores, talk/listen with your teenage child, tell people what you have been wanting and why. Cancers sometimes don’t speak up for themselves because how can they tell us where they got those ideas? Parents told them to stop telling stories about imaginary playmates when they were little, yet they could have sold millions of their writings! As it is, being acutely aware of cycles, they are great stock traders, especially of commodities, life’s daily goods. A lot of famous people have Mercury in Cancer – it is their link to the people!

Leo is teenage time, becoming your full glorious Self! Love is always in their heart, from little children to oneself, a romantic relationship that may not result in marriage. Cancer has children, but sometimes Leos spend their life as a step parent teaching other people’s children, and/or at school. Leos are bigger than life and have the hair to prove it! Performance, on stage, or that grand car, their athletic prowess, showing their colors, are part of their fabric. They work hard to be the best. They have a natural attractive presence, a big smile, are generously spirited. You know when they walk in the room. Are they happy? This retrograde will sort out some of the answers. It’s grand to be admired, but are you loved? Do you have the money to support your lifestyle. Shall you accept that position of status or do you long to do what is in your heart? Is there some more learning to be done to make you feel good about your own expertise. Should you take over and open your own shop? It likely won’t be a finger snap, but you will get headed to what’s better for you. Could be a great stepping stone.

Mercury in Leo likes it there! Leo loves being brilliant and mesmerizing their audience! They have a lot to say anywhere, anytime, to anyone who will listen! They are inspirational and people really listen. Leo will tell them how they got started, from nothing to somewhere. They will offer help and connections, ideas. They use colorful phrases and their body language is vibrant, their hair gleams and their spirits soar. You can tell they are passionate and they want you to have the glow too! They are wizards at teaching. They urge you to do it your way, do what’s in your heart with your own natural talents and assets! Success! They are profound lovers and can tell you stories that make you cry then clap your hands for happy! Just go easy while Mercury is retrograde, LOL!

The Stations! A Station is the pause at the retrograde and direct turns. Mercury literally appears to stand still for 8 days! We mull it over, focus, anchor what we want to keep. The Rx, turn back station is early at 4 Leo on July 7. It is the point furthest forward, a Leo preview of things possible to come! Four days before and after, we will mull over money, love, learning and giving, what’s in our heart to do. Mercury returns to Cancer July 19. Cancer sees what Leo has to offer, prepares for that potential. It sees what Leo needs to have stable support for his work and starts making adjustments so he won’t fail. The Direct, turn forward station is back at 23 Cancer 56 July 31. Four days before and after, Cancer will steady up matters at that point, making ready to embark on the journey to offer Leo what she can – cookies, cribs, her family’s expertise, the reservoirs of her extensive memory, plenty of hugs.

Look in your own chart to see where 23 Cancer to 4 Leo span, what house/s it is in. The matters of that/those houses are the place/s the Mercury Cancer/Leo apply to.

Mercury itself is communications, logic. It speaks/listens, is quicksilver distracted, yet intent when interested. It has to do with our lungs and breath, how we touch one another’s Spirits either with hands or words. We can be angry, comforting, whisper, hypnotize, sing lullabies to the baby, chat the neighborhood gossip, share vital life changing information.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers, or do everything to make it possible for that to happen so it doesn’t fall through. Escrows can fall through. Use experienced brokers. People don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! You lose your cell. Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Sign any contract changes and make sure they do too. Get/make copies, save and backup. Generally, you avoid making significant purchases/decisions especially of matters specific to the sign/s involved. In this case, Cancer rules homes, so you might wait to buy/sell a home. Leos might wait to buy a luxury car. Oh, and things get lost, sometimes found at the next retrograde! Do check with your astrologer for your good dates and times of day to make the best of it!

Aspects formed during Mercury in Cancer/Leo Retrograde. See the Timetable below.

There are only 3 and they each are formed only once.

  1. July 8 Mercury retrograde in Leo station conjuncts mighty Mars! Three days before, three days after! Could win the award, even several! Great show, grand performance, great race! Take your mind for a walk! See what is special about the love you see in action, how first responders save the day – an accident, a fire, a weather disaster, a lost pet, a heroic wilderness rescue. How are you the hero of your own life?! The heart we have is so very special. Love is beyond understanding at times. It’s sacred, reverent, almost hurts! The love for a child, the teacher for her students, precious performances as we learn to sing or make music, fresh starts taking pure courage, the 75 year marriage, an elder person holding our hand as they leave this dimension. We are phenomenal creatures. Superb leadership will always be in Love, a cat with nine lives!
  2. July 24 Mercury retrograde in Cancer conjuncts delectable Venus! Tasty, but don’t expect the meal to be precisely what you ordered, or the recipe to work out perfectly. Could be better the way it happens! No proposals with this one. A profession of love maybe, but it’s not likely to be a permanent thing you hoped for or would like long term. Still can be sweet. Give appreciations. If you are an artist, play with your medium, your colors. See if there is a message in your work. Write some music. Talk with your family, but expect everything to change. It’s not a time of stability; let go of expectations. Shift your thinking into exploration mode. Venus and Cancer are both feminine, so call a woman you haven’t spoken with for a while. Take a good look at your kitchen and the food you eat. See if you can do some updating so your meals are easier and more to your liking. Revise your diet a tad. If you have any doubts about your health, consider who you would like to see about that. If it’s cosmetic or not urgent, do wait until Mercury goes direct. You may have some good ideas about financial matters. See your astrologer for your best times.
  3. August 16 Mercury in Leo squares Uranus in Taurus! This aspect is exact the day after the whole retrograde cycle ends, but will be in effect the 14th and 15th. Be careful. Mercury gets impatient and Uranus can be fast while Taurus gets in your way. Just when you thought you passed them, they pass you, again, speeding! Maybe just get off the road and wait for a while or take another route. Better than getting in an accident or stuck in traffic brought to a standstill because they did. Be careful when you are backing up. Now, Mercury is a clever planet, and Leo has so much light he sees what others can’t! Uranus is impressed by this unusual phenomena, so may be very curious about it. It won’t be normal business. Either there will be a breakthrough or no amount of communicating will get the job done. Leo feels darn bad when they can’t do it. Or Uranus may miss the fact that Leo, though flamboyant at times, self-aggrandizing in manner, usually really wants to share something valuable. It may be just Leo’s style or he’s a bit unsure, so covers with distracting behavior. Try to listen to what is being said, versus how it’s said. Leo and Uranus are kinda opposite because Uranus is the planet of Leo’s opposite, Aquarius. Just stand a little further apart. This can be done – carefully. If Uranus pulls back too much it looks like he doesn’t care; Leo will pack up and leave thinking Uranus isn’t interested. Keep eye contact and tell Leo you are wanting to hear the rest.

Taurus New Moon!

Saturday May 4 at 3:46 PM Pacific, 14 Taurus 11!

Three in Taurus, three in Aries Bowl, Sextiles, Neptune Midpoint, Stars! 

Taurus 2019 New Moon Milky Way Green AirGlow Isle of Wright Chad Powers

The Milky Way and green airglow are captured over the Isle of Wight in this image taken by Chad Powell on Oct. 4, 2013.   

As I have said before, New Moons are a regenerative time. Moon is at the end of her 27 day cycle. She has been through all the signs, gathering information, giving as she can as she has gone along. She makes lots of adjustments, each sign so different and specialized. She takes the pulse of the people from all walks of life. When she meets Sun, he sees what she has accumulated – awareness of accomplishments, shortcomings, needs that need meeting. Sun floods her with Light energy and she is recharged for her next cycle. He appreciates her perceptiveness and caring and is himself restored by her faith in him. 

This is a good time to make assessments, put things into perspective. Keep these things in mind as you face challenges. The outcome  may surprise everyone! In Taurus, we assess our body, our attractiveness, what we want, our basic human rights, our relationship with our planet, ownership of our actions to get the job done. 

Bowl chart with three in Taurus, three in Aries! 

All the planets in this chart are in less than half the chart! This is called a Bowl chart ~ it collects, ponders and pours. Jupiter, the first planet, has had us in training, learning more about learning. Mars, our Aries planet, leads the way, spreading the good word in Gemini, but now it is opposite Jupiter, firing up Jupiter’s synapses with startling and exciting new information. Those old opinions are being challenged and updated! Jupiter may feel a bit taunted, but loves learning, and usually gives in to the bigger truth of things. Our last New Moon the emphasis was Pisces/Aries. This one has three planets in Aries and three in Taurus! The beginnings have been made and Taurus intends to anchor, stabilize production, refine the process. Collect your dreams, hold them consciously. Keep them right where you can touch them, close to your heart. Spread the good word.

Sextiles of Opportunity in mixed companionable elements! See all those green lines?!

In fire and air, Venus to Mars! Love at first sight! They are chatting while they dance, the moves are quick and graceful. Champions! They both may try to lead, LOL! Venus gives her blessings in an instant. She is leading the frame, choosing in a moment. Though she gave you the eye, don’t mistake that she is independent, creative and resourceful. She makes beauty wherever she goes; it’s like having a magic wand! Mars can match her steps and that is rare, so delightful that he can keep up, even surpass her! He has words; he hums while he moves. His rhythm is impeccable; his breath is with the wind. Venus is the budding flower in brilliant white or red, a rose of pink. In the world of the day, they have fond connections, connections with artists and movers, world leaders of all kinds. They share all the stories, perform with spiritual zest! They scintillate! There is a sweet scent as they pass by. New beginnings are blessed.

Mars does have a serious component in his periphery. Perhaps that makes him more formidable than one thinks at first glance. He is linked with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. That makes Gemini look pale, but he presents Gemini first. If he finds out there is deception, a web of imprisonment, an unhonorable chronic history, he will move on. He notes the susceptibility of curiosity, but he knows if he gets caught he might not get away in time. Careful. He learns to be a bit more cautious and be careful where he flirts. Due to a wrinkle in energy, he may almost inadvertently become aware of a wise being who may tell him of certain requirements he must experience to temper his Soul. It’s a test not everyone opts to take or passes even if they do. Do your best.

In Earth and Water, Neptune at the sextile midpoint between Saturn and the New Moon!
  • Saturn sextile Neptune is special, part of the big planetary combination that started with Pluto at the Ecliptic, 18° Capricorn, Oct 20, 2018! Jupiter and Saturn both will make exact aspects with Neptune June 16 and 18 at 18° Pisces. 18 Pisces sextiles that 18 Capricorn! Jupiter updates Neptune’s dreams of the millennium, teaches new methods of advocacy. A bigger Truth now prevails. Evolution’s work is ever in the making. Saturn builds an easy to follow, well defined Pathway of substance, makes sure the gears are running smoothly. Saturn pays attention to the structural integrity of the dream’s current condition and strengthens as needed. There may be some delays, but the delays will make for long term substantial gain.

  • Moon and Sun are potently trining Saturn as well as also making the sextile to Neptune! Moon and Saturn know each other well. Each is preserving elemental integrity, building a strong home base, taking care of elders, the kids and generations to come. Both are relatively conservative, as they should be considering their jobs, but they always help when they can. Sun and Saturn get along well. Sun praises, gives energy, and lights the way when Saturn faces his toughest challenges. Saturn has his doubtful moments, but rarely abandons his Soul’s commitments. 

    You might think by closeness this would also lead to Pluto since Saturn is so close to Pluto, but not so much. Sextiles are not given so much leeway by most astrologers as that long 11° between Moon/Sun and Pluto, and Saturn is retrograding away from Pluto faster than Pluto is retrograde. Yes, their conjunction is in the offing, they have been within sniffing distance, taking measure of what’s to come, giving fair warning of the necessities that will follow. It will be Saturn’s job to bring the dangerous Pluto extremist into a more workable current collaboration in a timely fashion. Yet sometimes it takes holding the extreme condition to get people to see exactly what the time frame is, like with climate conditions. The old guard money machines aren’t going to hold all that melting water. Time to find new ways to capitalize for the futures of our children. Private parties and businesses are stepping in, taking care of reality. And they are the ones who have funded government in the past. Now they are doing the business of the planet. That’s bigger.

    Moon and Neptune are both so intuitive. Mama Moon sees Neptune’s deepest wishes. She sees the cycles they are flowing in, variations that are coming. Neptune sees not just Moon’s own family, but the family of humanity. He sees her cycles within the grand cycles. He tunes her up and she believes what he shows her. She knows her daily work is symbolic of the macrocosm. She cleans, hugs the hurts, feeds, supports and sometimes leads as a woman of substance in behalf of her people. Keeping her people strong is essential. She helps people feel their way along, understand each other’s differences. As she changes, so will they. 

    Sun heartens Neptune to stand up rightfully in his unique insights. Take that song with those lyrics to center stage. Music has always been a way of speaking. As we listen, dance to it, we take it in. We become it without realizing. There is a complicit agreement, resonance. We can be profoundly influenced. As we might be doing yoga at the beach, or sitting in meditation with other Souls of great intention. The Sun makes us aware of our own radiance and the seed of the dream we have held within starts to grow…
Three Semi-Sextiles!

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Taurus’ coming year they are exact twice in their new signs Aries/Taurus – June 30, 2019 and at Valentine’s time, Feb 15, 2020!  See more about Chiron/Uranus 

Jupiter retrograde in Sagittarius is semi-sextile Pluto in Capricorn! Jupiter is UP and Pluto and Capricorn are considered to be down dirty and sensible, realistic! If you take it all too seriously, get burdened with obsessive commitments you can’t humanly keep, get tired beyond measure, then runaway with Jupiter! Jupiter does have big plans, but there are often detours, trips, fun, funny! It’s not what you do but how you do it! Plenty of time outs, diversions so you don’t lose it, being silly and ridiculous just for the heck of it, stretching your muscles and spirit! Go Surfing in New Zealand, get in an outdoor run, some yoga, sign up for the samba class you always wanted, get some private tutoring! Make noise, yodel! See what I mean, Jellybean?! Now. If Jupiter is just not getting things done, on time or ever, it might be time to be reminded of the consequences of going too far that direction! Divvy up the task into small bites; start with something just to get a start. If possible, never sign up for something you didn’t want to do in the first place. But if it is a chance as a step to something more better, give yourself a time limit and give it a go! Either way, Jupiter or Pluto, take good care of yourself. 

For this New Moon, Venus is leading old Neptune on! She has whispered with him before when they are in Pisces together, but now she is calling to him to catch up! She’s pretty, perky, agile, dodges bullets, starts fires, is spirited in the most attractive way! He can’t help but long to put some of his visions in her hands and wish to be close with her again. She’s pushing for change, now, and he may be embarrassed once in a while at her shenanigans, but even if she makes a mistake, she has record recovery time! Progress! She still comes by to listen to him, seek his guidance and inspire her with new ideas. He may not look to exciting, but don’t underestimate his tempests! Formidable if he is displeased. Be ready to roll!

Venus is also at a T Square midpoint to Saturn and the Moon’s Nodes! They are in Cardinal signs: Saturn in practical earthy Capricorn, Venus in fire breathing Aries, the Nodes spanning Cancer/Capricorn – Saturn at the South Node. There is a Fateful component. Saturn, Capricorn and the South Node, are related to our past. The family reputation, karmic consequences good or bad, old age, archaeology, meaningful past lives. Cardinal signs are always getting things rolling. Cancer takes care of the home and family, Capricorn builds both shelter, and community connections, and knows what’s done is done, let go, rebuild. Aries is the first responder, leader of merit, gets the troops inspired with new ideas! This leader could be a woman, perhaps may lack credibility, but she certainly gives it a go. She may prove to be right or with excellent input, makes quick adjustments and it comes out better than anyone expected! Her auspicious sextile with Aries planet Mars in Gemini assures everyone will hear about the project, sending her information she needs minute by minute, further leading her to make thrilling daring moves! What a dance! 

There was another T Square, Jupiter and Mars to Neptune, but it has fizzled since Jupiter and Mars have gone beyond Neptune’s degree now. Yet, Neptune remains felt as the midpoint of the entire chart! What has potency now, however, is Mars opposite Jupiter! Fireworks! Mars is a fire sign, Jupiter a fire planet in his own sign, fiery Sagittarius! Mars in airy Gemini might spread himself a little thin, living on air instead of food, but he’s having a great time of it as Jupiter feeds him data from all other the world. Pushy Mars may want to act before Jupiter thinks things are ready. They may go head to head, differences of opinion, Mars willing to take on the giants, Jupiter outspoken and not known for tact all the time. But fire and air are quick and smart, get through it just about as fast as it started! Mars likes being independent, and might be frustrated when Jupiter takes off one of the few times Mars needs support. Jupiter may find Mars isn’t as impressed with his grand ideas as his students are. For Mars he’s used to taking on big ideas because he has plenty of his own. Jupiter may underestimate Mars. But Mars is 10 times faster than anyone else, so Jupiter sees such amazing progress he’s challenged to keep up with Mars! All’s forgiven.

The 3 STARS dance continues! Each time since the October New Moon, all the New Moons since being at 15°, the same stars have been activated but by different types of links! This earthy 14° Taurus New Moon makes a blessed sextile with the renowned Fixed Star Sirius at 14 Cancer! Sirius is the Dogstar in Canis Major, the brightest star in the heavens. It is said to give honor, renown, wealth, ardor, faithfulness, devotion, passion and resentment, and makes its natives custodians, curators and guardians. It also gives danger of dog bites! Woof! Taurus and Cancer make sure everyone is comfy and fed well. Taurus steadies Cancer. Cancer listens and doesn’t rush Taurus. She knows when to get back to her business and let him think some more.

Moon and Sun are trine Sirius’s opposite star Vega at 15 Capricorn.  Moon is born to music and Vega is Lyra’s bright star. She puts beauty, music and arts in our lives. They make ballads and lullabies. Taurus has a lovely voice that soothes humans and animals alike. Taurus love being hands on, makes stunning ceramics, sculptings. They sculpt their own bodies with weight training or weight loss programs. This is so brief about the stars. Look up more online about their histories, lore, data! Go to spiritual sites for deeper discussions.  

Again, not only is the Dogstar involved, but so is the hunter himself! Venus in Aries has just sextiled Orion’s star Rigel at 16 Gemini. Aries likes weapons and Orion is the hunter. Works for her. You might guess Rigel has mixed reviews. Mythologically it was thought to be where the scorpion stung Orion causing Orion’s death. Oops. About Rigel and Venus, Robson says: Honors or favors in middle life, good and influential marriage especially if female. About Mars (Aries), he says ‘Unruly, ingenious occupied with mechanical matters, great military preferment. Any old time, Venus in Aries can throw a temper tantrum, sweetly, mind you, and get away with it! With Rigel she just might have a little more teeth. You might call her on it or decide to wait a bit…

Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently part of:

We are in an impressive sequence of unusual aspects started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter/Saturn with Neptune are at 18 Pisces. The coming nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs! Saturn conjunct Pluto is precisely linked to the powerful aspect, same degree and sign, most close to the 2020 Presidential Elections. Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

At this New Moon Venus tickles the web from 17 Aries! She is square the Pluto/Ecliptic point, semi-sextile the mid-June Neptune point, and inconjunct the Transit of Mercury! She is requesting an updating of intention, no time to lose. Yes, it will be more work, inconvenient, but it almost seems like they have been waiting for this missing piece. She shows Neptune a new shiny speed boat and he’s delighted! Sitting side by side, they imagine going on a merry ride beyond her wildest ideas! He doesn’t want to let her down, so she brings out his best! Venus quickens the Scorpio brew where the Transit of Mercury will occur. Aries and Scorpios are warriors from way back. Aries fire warms the temps, gets any sludge at the bottom moving and be released. Aries primes the pump.

Pluto is now at 23 Capricorn, just a degree from where Saturn, potently in his own sign, will catch up with Pluto Jan 12, 2020! Pluto will be at 23 when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential election because they are precisely astrologically linked! Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Jupiter sits at 23 Sagittarius now, one sign before, readying our plans and preparations. Jupiter keeps the perspective of the big picture in mind and our intentions for the future guide our every choice. Any learning and teaching are needed now to be in place for when we or others are ready for the next step. Be flexible and keep the faith! 

Those of you with factors in your charts close to 18 and 22/23 and 27 degrees will be connected. You can help or hinder or be hindered and helped! We’re counting on you to be keepers of the important informations, sacred wisdom, that are transmitted at these times – even if those are difficult times for you. You are the Guardians and will distribute valuable portions of information in potent places where it will do the most good, be effective. We honor your place, for being here this way for us.

Steady as she goes. We have a lot to do.

Wesak Seasonal Blue Flower Full Moon! 

Saturday May 18 at 2:11 PM Pacific, 27 Scorpio/Taurus 39

Buddha’s Birthday! Taurus Stellium, Pairs, Jupiter/Saturn-Neptune! 

Taurus Scorpio 2019 Wesak Buddha Seasonal Blue Full Flower Moon

The Buddha’s Birthday, Wesak, celebration date is different in different countries. In Pacific time, the United Nations will celebrate it Saturday May 18 in 2019. 

The Full BLUE Moon, is the only 2019 Seasonal Blue Moon. Since this is the third of four full moons in this season, it is known as a blue moon. This calendar event only happens once every few years, giving rise to the term, “once in a blue moon.” There are normally only three full moons in each season of the year. But since full moons occur every 29.53 days, occasionally a season will contain 4 full moons. The extra full moon of the season is known as a blue moon. Blue moons occur on average once every 2.7 years.

Three outer planets are potently in their own signs! Purity prevails. Jupiter is frolicking in Sagittarius. Saturn is steadfast in Capricorn. Neptune is apperceptive in Pisces. Venus is in one of her own signs, our sign Taurus! She breathes Nature’s beauty, is aware of natural cycles. 

Stellium! May 15 to 21 we have four planets in Taurus, Uranus, Venus in one of her own signs, Mercury and Sun – four ways to interact, four tools to apply! Uranus will bring unusual bonds of friendship, some due to weather, food needs, animal protection, sustainable shelter. Elemental. Venus will go before him showing why these matters are worth it with data and images showing valuable alternative new living systems. Wise. Mercury is out there steadily spreading the word, developing sensible answers, updating info as he goes, finding collaborators. It’s challenging and rewarding. Sun is throwing Light energy, encouraging us to stand up, each in our own special way, from our own heart. Love.  

Full Moon of Scorpio during Taurus! While Moon is checking on hidden resources, Sun is steady in Taurus, observing her progress, holding the fort. Moon may need to make a quick retreat, or the prize is too much to get away with on her own and she may need some security forces to be dispatched ASAP! She may be caught in a formidable seduction, a lot of money involved, and Sun may need to shed some Light on the affair to reveal the entirety of it all! She could be stolen away, or they could become wealthy by combining forces. Sun in Taurus protects what’s his/ours. Moon can be conservative because she is always somewhat vulnerable as mother/child. Might be the best thing that ever happened, or she may know exactly why she never ever did and will not do!

Three Planetary Pairs, two of those in Taurus! That means conjunctions of dual powers! Potency and focus!

  1. Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn have been 3° or less of each other since April 6. April 29 Saturn retrograded, still close, gaining momentum in reverse, out of the 3° range May 28. Saturn has made the approach, but they don’t connect exactly until Jan 12, 2020! The preview has made Saturn aware of what needs to be done and is giving 8 months to be prepared, get it done! It can be personal matters, teeth, skin, bones. It can be business, real estate, elders, parenting. It can be world matters, laws, borders, tariffs, protection of civil liberties. The process can be from destruction of what no longer works, reusing what does – remodeling, building from the ground up. It can be infamy, shame, or honored achievement. Your chart will be particularly called on if you have factors from 17 to 23 degrees. Capricorn rules the high mountains, hard rock solidarity, survival in sometimes harsh conditions. Band together and stay safe.

  2. Venus has just crossed Uranus in Taurus. She makes what’s unique about Uranus into something outstandingly valuable! Taurus is the most fertile land, and if you are growing food, climate and weather conditions have your complete attention. Venus is beauty, loving kindness, and Uranus is friends and everything electronic – the internet, your phone. It’s a blessed time to make connections and gather your tribe. Uranus is the planet of Evolution. Together we get those bigger ventures done! Sponsor special health research, invest in future sources of energy in behalf of climate change because the standard package is no longer serving. Help people make their changes enjoyably, help them to overcome shock, fear. Venus can help Uranus set people free and get stabilized in their new way of life! Let go of sugars, carbs, alcohol. Maybe do a Keto diet?!

  3. Mercury is talking with Sun In Taurus. They are savoring their favorite words, comparing thoughts of value, common determinations. Mercury has news and Sun is contemplating its potential, what their part in it might be. They are deciding the best ways to fertilize the fields of opportunity becoming available, how to anchor their progress for sustainable future gains. They go slowly and carefully, their considerations are provocative.  

Mercury and Sun have favorably trined the Saturn/Pluto conjunction, Mercury most recently, keeping the information flowing. Mercury is transmitting to Sun Taurus to Taurus, but their exact connection, May 21 at 6:07 AM, is after they both change signs into Gemini, one of Mercury’s signs! At that point, the nature of the message changes. It retains the original content, but the added question becomes how to get the word out to the maximum number of people that it may continue to be transmitted! Moon caught the gist of the message, is a fast mover, in this case the front person! She carries the message on in a rather Scorpio underground manner, telling it to people who will carry it potently to key places, paving the way for it to be well funded and implemented successfully later.  

Mercury also inconjuncted Jupiter in Sagittarius. Mercury is of Gemini and Virgo, knowledge and putting it to work. Jupiter of Sagittarius is opposite Gemini, square Virgo. He takes the data Gemini gathers, Virgo categorizes, and puts it collectively into perspective, gives it meaning and long term purpose. So what Mercury passes to Sun is ready to go. The Plan is in progress. 

Jupiter and Saturn are both retrograde on their way back to square and sextile Neptune June 16 & 18. These aspects are especially important because they happen while Neptune is at 18 Pisces, sextile the Pluto/Ecliptic point of Oct 30 2018 at 18 Capricorn! The whole sequence started Oct 30, 2018 with Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! The Jupiter/Saturn pair are preparing us for the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse and its sister aspect Nov 19, Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! Those in turn prepare us for the Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and Mar 21 The Crown! All of these will have strong effect on the Nov 3 2020 presidential elections.

Jupiter will be seeking greater meaning now that we have had some months of experience. Jupiter and Neptune have to do with Faith and Spirituality. Faith often has a name, a congregation. Spirituality is more your personal relationship with your beliefs, being a Savior of Humanity. It might be sitting in meditation, doing good works for suffering Souls, no name needed. Many are thinking of the huge donations being given to restore Notre Dame while cities don’t have drinking water, animals are going extinct, children are suffering. One woman wrote ‘What would Jesus do?’ Jupiter’s Truth is challenging Neptune’s blind side.

Saturn’s job is to take the best most workable ideas of the Jupiter square Neptune and parlay them into use. These three will aspect each other, two more exact times June 16/18 and Sep 21/Nov 8. Saturn is practical and offers Neptune a reasonable rebuild. Saturn cuts the time, builds strong and doesn’t waste time. Old things, stones and glass are his medium. He may take a more middle of the road stance due to public opinion. The ones donating may come to question why they haven’t given before to matters of living beings. We have these magnificent heritage buildings and we have animals going extinct on the same day. One is reparable, the other is not. Please give the majority of your energy to the long term.

Moon’s Nodes recently spanned across Saturn, the South Node at Saturn! They have to do with the Past. We have been considering how things used to be, how they have been, what’s to come and what to do. Saturn wants to rebuild, make a difference, have rules that are doable. The North Node, the direction we are heading, wants food to be better quality, to eat the right kinds and amounts. Saturn can help regulate and build a better system. In addition, the Nodes are favorable, in the same degree with Neptune! Neptune is addictions of any kind, and food doesn’t cost much, is right there in your fridge. A favorable aspect can make us think we can get away with it, or Neptune can help us imagine consequences and make us realize the need to take care of ourselves better. If we aren’t talking about addictions, we can see how women, families are so important in our world today when there is so much change at hand. We all need the nurturing. We are inspired to make a safe and better world for our loved ones. We need to treat ourselves better that we may be able to help them well. Young heroines like 15 year old activist Greta Thunberg speaks truth to power at the UN COP24 climate talks. She speaks of her needs as a planetary citizen who lives on after us…

The early degree planets are getting us started! Mars just entered Cancer on the 15th, is quite fearless as usual, is activating Uranus. Mars may be slightly intimidated by his own Mother, but no one else and not for long! God knows Mothers have special powers. GrandMothers too. But if Mars takes on the Mother role, have mercy on us all! Mars will do what he wants to do in the name of taking care of you. He knows he knows what’s best for you and it’s important to do it now! If he gets rebellious to his Mother, be sure to have your best strategies at hand, LOL, you’re gonna need ’em! Uranus adds a further touch of rebellion, wanting freedom and change! Those old fashioned Cancerian ways are about to be turned over! But, if home, family, women and children need defending and liberating, you have a champion! At the very least you are going to find new ways to have food and shelter, live a better life. No dawdling!

Mars is slower, so Venus made the sextile the 14th, in different signs.

Mars is about to square Chiron May 23. There is some compatibility since Chiron is in Aries, the Mars sign. Cancer and Aries are what we call Cardinal signs, starters, so if healing and a better life is offered, they can get a lot done together. There will probably need to be an acceptance that each has a different way of doing things. Aries is gonna be quick. Cancer might want to wait and doesn’t give up the old ways so easily. But somebody has to break through. Even if a few mistakes are made, hopefully they are not only reparable, but new discoveries are made through the process that are even better than the original proposal! Go get ’em and good luck!

Hold Beauty true, give Blessings, steady onward with Peace in your Heart.

Galactic Center 2009 NASA

NASA image of the Galactic Center

The first ten months of 2019 Neptune has been being prepared for the sister events, the Transit of Mercury Eclipse and Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! He has been activated SIX times, three by Jupiter’s challenging viewpoints. Neptune is stirred, no longer laying still. He may be on his feet like a Thich Nhat Hanh walking meditation or sitting in a dynamic meditation. For now he needs to be in a healthy awake, alert on duty condition. And there are three activations by Saturn, doing on-the-ground testing the principles Jupiter and Neptune have pondered, getting the kinks out to let it all flow smoothly. Neptune is a planet of being infinitely, delicately, richly  sensitive, a giant receptor. In some ways it is indiscriminate and that is good when a transmission of this solar magnitude comes through. Neptune doesn’t block any part of it; it comes through whole. Mercury rules Gemini, information, data, and Virgo analysis. Neptune rules the sign opposite Virgo, Pisces. It’s important not to judge, or try to make order of it, but just see it as it is, an order we aren’t yet used to. It must be untampered with so the original is protected intact. This Transit event will last hours, so Mercury and Neptune have to be strong. It will take months and years, maybe a lifetime, to understand in fullness.

The June 16, 17 and 18 events are particularly important since the 16 and 18 events are at the 18th degree, the one that links Pluto at the Ecliptic and the Transit of Mercury. The Full Moon on the 17th at 25 Sagittarius also acts as a receptor.

The Oct 30, 2018 248 year Pluto at the Ecliptic is linked to the Transit of Mercury Eclipse by degree. The Transit of Mercury and Jupiter at the Galactic Center are only 8 days apart, Nov 11 and 19, 2019! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path and Mercury crosses the face of the Sun, both infused with the major Light, SOLAR light of our Solar system! Jupiter, Mercury’s ‘opposite’ planet (Mercury of Gemini opposite Jupiter of Sagittarius, now IN Sagittarius), is a BIG planet being infused with GALACTIC LIGHT – 200+ billions of Suns! Jupiter is a lucky charm that enhances where it is. We will feel fortunate and optimistic about what we receive. Jupiter will be wearing his regal cloak while we all make plans what to do!

Nov 11 Mercury is charged up, radiant with super information! It’s communication fibers have been seared clean, and are eminently more capable of pure transmission. Mercury speaks with power of the most important matters, is brilliant with more channels! It must be so, because it will also be the neighborhood channel of Jupiter’s galactic encounter! Jupiter will teach life changing insights of planetary importance far and wide. Perspectives will shift immensely. Mercury will step down some of the information to the average citizen. Did you hear about…..?! Data will be gathered to see how the citizens are taking it all, and that will be taken back to ‘Central’ to see what needs to be released next, to whom, and how. Ok, back to the beginning…

The Moon crosses the Galactic Center 12 to 13 times a year, the Sun once a year. Jupiter crosses it every 12 years while in its own sign Sagittarius, the host sign of the Galactic Center! Jupiter will get very close to it April 2019 when it goes stationary retrograde at 25 Sag, and then the doors are wide open at the exact conjunction about 7 AM Pacific November 19 2019 at 27 Sag 07!

Per the Cosmic Intelligence Agency (chuckle): The Galactic Centre is the point around which our whole galaxy, The Milky Way turns. It was discovered in Feb 1974, fittingly with the [Moon’s] North Node at 27° Sagittarius and Saturn at the South Node. The Galactic centre moves like a fixed star at the rate of precession through the zodiac at 1° every 72 years, forward in the tropical zodiac (as the Aries point moves backward) and is currently [was] at 26°59′ Sagittarius. At this centre is a super massive black hole [4 light years wide], a galactic gravitational centre, a huge cosmic womb of sorts. What we know of black holes is that they are massive forces of energy sucking in everything around them, yet full of power, potential and creation. The core and key of the birth of the galaxy itself.  It is as big as 4 million suns. It is 25,000 light years away. To give you an idea of how far away that is, Alpha Centauri our closest star is 4.3 light years away, with mega giant star Betelgeuse 642 light years away.

The 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic, and 2019’s Mercury across the face of the Sun – Transit of Mercury, are strictly local by comparison! Both are related to our one Sun, whereas the GC is the center of 200+ billions of star systems! Yet, by closeness of dates and degrees, the Transit of Mercury Nov 11, eleven, eleven, and Jupiter at the GC Nov 19 are very much related, virtually happening together! At the Transit, Jupiter is at 25 degrees Sag, less than two degrees of the GC conjunction. The Transit of Mercury Eclipse is closely linked with the Ecliptic event and the GC event! It is perhaps pivotal between them. It is the observer of the year following the Ecliptic event, transmits to the Sun and the Sun to him, then Jupiter is the go between of Earth and the Galaxy!  Mercury is considered the neighborhood planet, where Jupiter, his ‘opposite’ planet, is the traveler spreading the good word far and wide, giving meaning to Mercury’s data and incorporating it in his big plans! This is a BIG party!

It feels like you have the whole Galaxy at your fingertips! You reach out so far you can forget where you came from! And it doesn’t matter. You just be the best you can be everywhere you are. The Galactic Center, GC, is a monumental point of infusion of collected Light of all the stars, not just our Galaxy but other star systems as well. Open your mind and Spirit as much as you possibly can. Don’t bother about articulating or judging it; absorb it. You can sort it out later. If you, as one person, want to be heard, when there are events at this point in the zodiac, be sure to vote! We are heard collectively. Humanity progresses as it can; joining up with the Galactic Beings can boost the process.

Trines can be like greased lightning! There won’t be any trouble with these transmissions! See those TWO big blue triangles?! That’s them, Grand Trines –  grand because the trine has all three points filled! We feel lucky to have one; two is a bonus! The two planets we have been talking about, Mercury and Jupiter, are each in one of the two trines! Mercury, of course, is in the intuitive Grand Water Trine with Neptune in its own sign Pisces, the psychic of the Soul, the Sensitive. Mercury may try to analyze, can’t help it, but Neptune will keep the priority on the highest spiritual matters. Mercury is in Scorpio, a ‘fixed’ sign, in an eight day retrograde/direct (about to go forward) STATION! It ‘turns’ forward the NEXT DAY, Nov 20 at 11:12 AM Pacific! But in a station, it is ‘standing’ still, attuned, fully absorbing. It focuses, lets no motion distract it. Scorpio is a keen deep seeker, so every particle will be noticed and plumbed. It’s purpose is to heal so we may have union. The Phoenix rises from the Kundalini of its own ashes, the fertilizer of the past. It rises, unfettered, to the occasion. That is intense to experience or witness. As this release is slowly happening while in station, Mercury will soon again be going forward, gathering momentum, releasing the secrets of its findings!

So how long is Jupiter at the Galactic Center? Astrologers vary a lot in their rules about things like this. For such an exotic event they might allow a 1 degree before and after range. Since Jupiter is a slow moving outer planet, that would give it from Nov 14 to the 24th, 10 days. If a 5 degree range were allowed, the astrologer might allow 5 degrees ahead of the exact date and only, say, 3 degrees following, saying the energy would be dissipating after the exact event. That would then be Oct 25 to Dec 3, 39 days. Another astrologer might say that as soon as Jupiter changes signs Dec 2, that’s the end of it. But, as Mercury takes hours to cross the face of the Sun, how long might it take Jupiter to cross the Galactic Center so far, far away?! Is distance important to factor in? No. Pluto, our furthest most small planet, has tremendous potency many of us have lived! The Galactic Center itself moves only a degree every 72 years… I’m inclined to give it the 10 day timing that correlates with the Mercury 8 day station discussed in the paragraph above. But we are each so different in our ‘radar.’ When you feel it, is when it is true for you for sure, but we all know certain things come upon us so slowly we don’t realize it at first…give it some room, be open and alert.

And who is in the Grand Fire Trine?! JUPITER, a fire planet! Venus is right near him, coming to give her blessing! And bountiful it is because she is in Sagittarius too! They are gold medal splendid together! And the Moon and Part of Fortune in Leo, sign of Love, Heart and solar Light, are trining them! Moon is happily center stage and applauding as well! She makes us feel how connected we all are, how generous we can be. We can get tears in our eyes. In her nurturing spirit she helps present the benefit event of all benefit events! There are none to compare! It may be melodramatic, but it only makes the point. Fire signs represent Spirit, initiation, exuberance, leadership! Sag and Leo are both teaching signs. Perfect for the job ahead.

Yes, there are some challenges. The most organic is the classic male/female at odds Moon square Sun. Moon wants her way in Leo. Scorpio Sun says none of your business, and may be pressed to give Leo the support for the luxuries she knows she deserves. In the kindliest sense she may warm his heart, dote on him and he is secretly pleased, and melts a little bit. She needs to know not everything is about her. He cares so much. She sees him anonymously help others and respects him, is proud of him. In this case, they need to surrender selfishness and unspoken fears, to the greater Galactic business of Souls and the Planet.

Mars opposite Uranus could be a little kinky and hazardous. Mars in Scorp always thinks he has 9 lives, but why waste time in repeated recoveries of rocking the boat just a little too far? Enjoy the wild but stay steady with some down to earth friends. Listen to them.

The big challenge may involve Jupiter himself! He is out of sign square Chiron! They are coming to meet each other since Chiron is retrograde. Since Jupiter is at the end of Sag, and Chiron is at the beginning of Aries, they are both in fire signs at the time of the Galactic infusion. Later, Dec 8, when Jupiter is in Capricorn, it will square Chiron by signs that aren’t compatible. For now, Jupiter is maturing, enjoying his culmination in Sag. He’s happy to frolic with Chiron and is especially interested in new healing methods! Chiron is on hand for any help Jupiter may need. It’s not every day you have a Galactic encounter for real! Anything could happen! See more about the Dec 8 square.

The 2018 Pluto Ecliptic, the 2019 10 months of Jupiter/Saturn to Neptune combination, November’s Transit of Mercury and Jupiter at the Galactic Center are all bringing us up to speed for Saturn conjunct Pluto Jan 12, 2020 and The Crown Mar 21, 2020! It is a long and powerful sequence! Stay steady in the Light.

Those of you born Dec 17, 18, 19 are potently connected with the Galactic Center by birthright, always tuned to its frequency. You are lifelong channels for the rest of us. Some of you are conscious of this connection, for others it is yet to be discovered. The rest of us, with chart factors at 26, 27 and 28 degrees of any sign, don’t forget your midpoints, are connected as well. We each receive, translate and disseminate information from the skills our own signs – all of us components of the whole cosmic web.

Transit of Mercury 2006

The 2006 ECLIPSE as seen from Earth! Credit: ESA/NASA/SOHO

Nov 11, 2019 the Retrograde Eclipse crosses the SUN, 7:21 AM Pacific at 18 Scorpio 55! See the AstroLogical Chart below!

The first ten months of 2019 Neptune has been being prepared for the sister events, the Transit of Mercury and Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! He has been activated SIX times, three by Jupiter’s challenging viewpoints. Neptune is stirred, no longer laying still. He may be on his feet like a Thich Nhat Hanh walking meditation or sitting in a dynamic meditation. For now he needs to be in a healthy awake, alert on duty condition. And there are three activations by Saturn, doing on-the-ground testing the principles Jupiter and Neptune have pondered, getting the kinks out to let it all flow smoothly. Neptune is a planet of being infinitely, delicately, richly sensitive, a giant receptor. In some ways it is indiscriminate and that is good when a transmission of this solar magnitude comes through. Neptune doesn’t block any part of it; it comes through whole. Mercury rules Gemini, information, data, and Virgo analysis. Neptune rules the sign opposite Virgo, Pisces. It’s important not to judge, or try to make order of it, but just see it as it is, an order we aren’t yet used to. It must be untampered with so the original is protected intact. This Transit event will last hours, so Mercury and Neptune have to be strong. It will take months and years, maybe a lifetime, to understand in fullness.

The June 16, 17 and 18 events are particularly important since the 16 and 18 events are at the 18th degree, the one that links Pluto at the Ecliptic and the Transit of Mercury. The Full Moon on the 17th at 25 Sagittarius also acts as a receptor.

Mercury will cross the Eclipse degree 3 times. It’s first pass is Oct 17, preparation and tune-up. Second is the Eclipse Nov 11. Last is Nov 30, making the best place for it in our lives. Retrograde means another look, a review, a turn around and seeing from another direction. In Scorpio important matters of relationships, finances, and health will all be revisited. This encounter with the Sun will bring hidden things to Light, unexpected sharing, a magnitude of attention.

In Horary Astrology, a planet, but especially Mercury, conjunct Sun, within 17 minutes, is called Cazimi. This is an exact Cazimi, an Eclipse! It is considered fortunate. Mercury is at the heart of the Sun, strengthened by the Solar union, reforged! I find people with Mercury conjunct Sun to be mental giants, have an extraordinary brilliance! They are inspired communicators, amazing researchers, express themselves with intense vitality! The Solar battery is ON! Yes, they at times get to a point of a standstill, the machinery reaches max saturation, and down they go for that nap or the night, fall asleep at the desk. Done. But the switch flips and they are at it again. Their mind can work on long after the body quits. If you love someone like this, kindly put food and water in their way. They may take it in absentmindedly as their mind is so focused on the important matter at hand!

The last Transit of Mercury was May 9, 2016 in fixed sign TaurusSee about it! It was at 19 Taurus 25 retrograde. This one is just minutes opposite at 18 Scorpio 55, almost 19 degrees. Again, old Horary science comes into play. What about that 19 degrees?! 19 Scorpio was called the ‘dread degree’ of the entire zodiac! Many are born on 19 Scorpio and do fine. Clearly there are not terrible world traumatizing events that day every year. Yet, there are times, and for some people, it indicates severe challenge, possibly lifelong. One 19 Scorpio Moon woman never knew her mother, was in 13 foster homes and known for her volatile emotions. Events may be defined quite differently. Is it carnage or should we call it regeneration? Shall we hire the wrecking crew for things that completed their usefulness, clear the path for repurposing? Taurus is a sign of fertility and growth, and Scorpio is known for healing and regeneration! Both are known for strength – one for the power of life, the other for the power of rebirth. Taurus says mine; Scorpio says ours. They can strongly clash neither giving an inch, yet often, with help of a third party, make peace and work powerfully together for common cause.

In the Ecliptic chart, the Moon is in fixed sign Taurus this time, the sign the Transit was in last time. It just passed over Uranus, the electrical spark of Life! Uranus is the holder of the Akashic Records, the records of the soul. In Taurus it has the will to survive, to be centered, alive and in harmony with Mother Earth, anchored in Peace. There is a deep sense of calm, a kind of trust in what is most organic in us. Our values for preservation are foremost. Climate change is holding a strong place in us. Venus and Jupiter in Sagittarius, Jupiter’s own sign, plus Mars in Libra sextiling Jupiter, suggest we have a lot to learn, a lot of connections to be made, a long journey ahead, many successes along the way. Many special cross cultural relationships will be formed, profound exchanges will be shared.

This conjunction, TRANSIT, is powerfully in fixed sign Scorpio of the dark, a keen observer who puts things together behind the scenes. Who honors you with complete confidentiality about personal matters – love life, finances, health. Who heals you at deeper levels, the levels of causality rather than a quick fix of symptoms…that will come back if the core isn’t healed.

Being an underworld sign, Scorpio is at odds with the Sun, the brightest Light there is. Better be clean, able to be illuminated and scanned by this bright Soul Scope. It’s like an x-ray by the Sun, your bones appear as shadows. Nothing escapes. If you pass the test, and it is only you that knows if you did, even if you are in denial, the Light of this magnitude shows truth that can’t be ignored. You get the glimpse and it haunts you until you fix it. It’s not just the client/patient that is getting the scan, but the healer and the link between you too! Honoring yourself and your various healers, and they you, is part of the scenario.

Since it is with Mercury, it is what we think (unspoken), what we say, how we say it, when, to whom, how we listen. Mercury is quick on its feet, able to make light of things, dodge bullets, but the Truth is still the Truth, real and part of us. It mulls it over, thinks and thinks about it until things settle down, and eventually, we relax, relent, accept. Good or bad, there’s a peace. At last we can get to work. Another level is now available.

The Sun sees what we thought were all our little secrets. And suddenly many of them don’t feel so important anymore. There comes a balance between our individual being and our purpose here in this Life, our place among our fellows. Personal wellbeing with our special idiosyncrasies makes us able to tackle some of the greater issues of Humanity. Scorpio can flick out intense ideas right between our eyes! In this case our mental Kundalini will be raised. Scorpio can take on some of the most uncomfortable things and people will listen. We all share basic fears, are grateful to be appreciated and heard kindly in our greatest sorrow, pains, and glory! The Sun Lights up these places we feared were too hidden, too awful or embarrassing to say out loud, yet here we are telling our story. Finally. It’s a great release. Healers are cured by the ones they help. They say we do what we need to learn.

Mercury in Scorpio is awesome! Here’s little Mercury out there talking to Sun! Well, he is never more than 28 degrees from the Sun anyway, used to being Sun’s companion and messenger. They know each other quite well. But we don’t really think of it as an exchange, yet it is. The Sun burns away the dross. Scorpio gets obsessed and a little dirt collects around him while he is focused elsewhere. Well that needs to be offloaded and the weary thoughts of over thinking let go. The channels get clogged and need to be cleared.

Then, Mercury makes more sense and responses are quicker, more clear to hear. Sun can’t help being his big Self, but we all gotta listen to our constituents. Mercury is the Scorpio rep this time! In exchange the Word of the Sun, the Heart of Light, goes out to all those people through his Mercury conduit. The conjunction is at 18 Scorpio 55, so those of us with factors in our charts at 15 to 21 will be activated. If you have factors in Scorpio at those degrees, it could be particularly intense. It won’t be just this Transit, but it will bring back memories of the May 9, 2016 Transit as well! Mercury is an air planet. You can bet it will be waffling about in your space. A feather touch here, a glimpse through the veils of time, minds touching, thinking together as One. Possibly there is a sense of urgency. Scorpio ever calls for amending, the longer vision, the seriousness of Life. It understands consequences as well as excellence.

Mercury is Retrograde again, as it was in 2016. There is unfinished business. People we need to reconnect with. Reevaluate, repair our status, have remorse and empathy for, forgive ourselves. There are reasons why they are no longer in our lives, but we may have forgotten and need to remember the lesson. We can be kinder but not need to be with them. Or we need to ‘pass them on,’ help them get to the next level with someone able to help them with their current needs that we can’t help with. Let go and go on.

Though the mythological Mercury is a man, Mercury is considered an asexual neutral planet, servant and messenger of the Gods, as such, simply a logical Vulcan-like channel. It is at times more interested in the function of gathering and transmitting information than the information itself. Each of us will put the spin of our own chart filter on the information we receive, yet try to keep your transmission of what you receive as neutral as possible. Go for the clean abiding principles rather than judgements of it. Since Mercury is of Gemini the Twins, think of it as our masculine Solar twin being seamlessly in Union with our Earthly feminine mind. When we are at One, there are no misunderstandings, no omits. We are complete, the merger Divine.

Children born on this day during the Eclipse will have magical Solar linkage called Cazimi. Their birthdays will hold a meaningful part of our lives. In old horary astrology, when Mercury conjuncts the Sun exactly like this, it was considered unfortunate, burned out, combust. But I am with David Coleman’s camp. For your perspective, he explains it this way:

  • Cazimi, [within 0° 17′ of the Sun] then, leads to the most enchanted state wherein the essential meaning of the planet becomes truly inseparable from our spirit. A Cazimi Venus, for example, could easily be a nymphomaniac or ‘sex addict’, for example. It could also be a person with near supernatural charm, grace or insight into the world of feelings.
  • Under the sunbeams a planet [8° to 17° of the Sun] is warmed and vitalised and somewhat or completely invisible, meaning it is commanding and infused with our inner light but somehow ‘on the fringes’, lacking in conventional status. It becomes ethereal, alluring, unusual and dreamy
  • Combust planets [8° of the Sun] are unorthodox and often willfully defy external direction because they are confident in their own inner unique grasp of the planets essential meaning. They are either aloof from or disinterested in the material agenda of the planet concerned but will still display its power radiantly and forcefully but somewhat enigmatically and individually.

Short answer from another point of view: when a planet becomes non-visible because of the Sun’s light it becomes less physical and more astral in focus.

Since Cazimi is within all three of these definitions, I say ALL apply! Look at your own chart to see if you are in any of these categories and if, how you think they apply.

Expect these Cazimi children to have extraordinary things to say, an exceptionally clever mind in some way, some form of remarkable dexterity, an unusual voice, a way of speaking about a special talent that holds our attention even when it’s not our subject! In certain topics they will be intelligent ahead of their age expectancy, and will surpass common thinking.

Maybe you can tell by the chart below there is about to be a Full Moon, in fact, the very next day! It’s the Frosty Full Moon spanning Taurus/Scorpio. Our arms are open wide, fully extended, receiving and sending. Moon is Mother guardian, in Taurus is for grounding. Scorpio stores the winter foods. Scorpio intuitively knows things of importance, protects them until Taurus can secure the gold bricks in the stout counting house.Chart We may not understand it fully yet, but instinct draws us to hold safe space for it.

2019 Transit of Mercury Astrology Chart

2019 Transit of Mercury Astrology Chart

Pluto at the Ecliptic and the Transit are linked by degrees, the Sun, and both happen in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign!

Not only is this Transit of Mercury important for its own sake, but it is the MESSENGER FOR WHEN PLUTO WAS CONJUNCT THE ECLIPTIC!!! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path. That event was Oct 30, 2018 at 18 Capricorn 58. This one at 18 Scorpio 56 is only 2″ (minutes) from an exact sextile!!! The main commonality is both are related to the Sun and the Sun is in SCORPIO for both! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s Path through the heavens. The Transit of Mercury is when Mercury crosses the Sun! Mercury observed that 2018 event and in 2019 is at a maximum position to express Sun’s intention as purely as possible.

Sextiles have special energy as communicators! Exactly what it takes to do this job. The planets are linked in mixed compatible elements, in this case Pluto in Capricorn Earth then Mercury in Scorpio Water. Pluto in Capricorn is a powerful position. It has to do with money, funding, and people in charge of operations. It is healing and elders. It is cleansing and right timing. Relationships that have eternal meaning. It’s the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes in league with the Great Builder.

Truly, Mercury has important things to think about, communicate about, to translate and transfer point to point. Mercury is in Scorpio, PLUTO’S sign, keenly alert to what this all deeply means, and will carefully place the insights with people most capable of carrying the best forward! He will be quite discreet as revelations happen. Having just been with the Sun, the Light of all our Lights, his potency will be recognized and he will be listened to. Scorpios don’t waste time with idle chatter.

If your chart is activated by Pluto at the Ecliptic, it will also be activated by the Transit of Mercury! Imagine the power of children born during these events! They, we, are Messengers of the Light.


The exact conjunction is Nov 11, eleven eleven! That is a numerological pair of double numbers, considered master numbers. The number One represents leadership, inspiration, new beginnings, Initiation. In Scorpio that would mean starting over, revision or renewing a connection or contract of partnership. There is a knowing that two can do what one alone can’t do by themselves. Two Ones, standing together add to Two, a solidarity, like the second sign Taurus.

The exact time is 7:21 AM Pacific, just after Sunrise! We on the US west coast will be able to see it happening. The Sun is a big place, so it starts at Sunrise in Santa Barbara CA, 7:20 AM! For others it could be seen as long as 5 1/2 hours! It’s recommended to go to a high place, and TAKE YOUR ECLIPSE GLASSES!!!! The full transit period ends at 10:03 AM Pacific. Watch for the black drop effect, an optical illusion seemingly connecting Mercury’s disc to the Sun’s edge! It’s 100% done at 10:04 AM. Check out Dominic Ford’s simulation of how Mercury crosses the Sun at your location!

VISIBILITY! It is visible—weather permitting—for at least several hours in most of the world – US, South America, Africa, and Europe. You can see it as a tiny black dot silhouetted against the Sun’s disk. Find out if an astronomy group is setting up near you. Get tickets to the observatory! Find your favorite live stream channel! Find or get your viewing glasses now and put them in a place where you can easily find them! Clean up your old telescope. For viewing times at your location, click here at Time & Date! Enter your location.

On the average, there are only 13 transits of Mercury each century. The next will be 2032.

Be present as you can. It’s a Monday. Give gratitude, pray for guidance, healing for all, that you may be a clear transmitter. Be still and receive. Give thanks. If you can, write down or record your thoughts, request they be anchored in your Spirit. Share any message you feel you can. Remember, we are in this together, many Souls receiving. You may have a piece that needs to be coordinated with one or more others to gain full understanding and expression of the message to others. Thank you. Blessed be.

This is a profound exchange of information between us and the Heart of Light! Each person is linked to this chart in their own way, or not at all, though that isn’t likely since the many factors involved are across so many degrees. Each of us has a part in some way. Thank you for you and your part.

And this isn’t all. Nov 19 Jupiter, in his own sign Sagittarius, is conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER! For such long term events, these sister aspects, Transit and Jupiter at the Galactic Center, so few days apart, are virtually happening together! Please see about Jupiter at the Galactic Center!

Famous People Born On November 11th
  • Environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio, 44. (Actor, Film Producer)
  • Demi Moore, 56. (American actress)

Famous People Born On November 19th

  • Jodie Foster, 56. (Actress & Director)
  • Meg Ryan, 57.

Steady in the Light Forever!

Mercury Retrograde Pisces 2019 Big Sur Coast Bixby Bridge

An epic coastal curvy view along California’s Big Sur at Bixby Bridge, Big Sur Creek.

This is the first Mercury Retrograde of the three of 2019! All three involve water signs. In the Annual Newsletter I wrote: Pisces, the sign of the magnificent oceans, magic and the Great Mystery! From addicts to saviors, muddlement to acute insight and psychic accuracy. Being lost, to dedication forever led by celestial music.  

About Retrogrades!  

Whether hiking mountain switchbacks or driving a small zig zag road along a ragged coastline, what a journey! What amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. What’s behind is out of sight, a memory; what’s ahead is a mystery! Inner bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. Promontories give us visions of the future, longings for more! Each gives us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch.

Uniquely, this Mercury Rx 3 part cycle is tied with two outer planet sign changes! It starts Feb 18, the first day of Pisces 2019, the day Chiron goes into Aries its final time, the day before the Full Snow SuperMoon! Mercury starts Retrograde March 5, the day before Uranus goes into Taurus! Chiron’s change happens every 51 years, while Uranus is on an 84 year cycle! These are significant changes.

Chiron has been in Pisces, so Mercury’s job is to keep that Pisces healing in our minds, the spiritual component of us present, while this shift is in progress. The starting point is 16 Pisces. Mercury will go forward to 29 Pisces, the last degree of the last sign of the zodiac! It will turn, Retrograde there March 5, and go back to 16 Pisces on March 28. It turns forward, Direct, then, covering the same degrees the third time, completing the entire cycle April 16!

Since this focus in Pisces starts on the day Chiron goes into Aries, leaving Pisces, it seems we are not to forget those last degrees in Pisces. Chiron is going forward, and Aries is the sign of fresh and new! It’s easy to jump into the new excitement. Mercury will be like an archive of insights, will keep Chiron’s tools at hand and offer them up when needed. Mercury is generally logical. In Pisces it’s less fettered by logic and quickly responds without necessarily thinking. You learn to trust your instincts more while it’s in Pisces. That will be most helpful while Chiron is on new ground, now an Aries first responder type!

Every Retrograde is unique, per the signs, their planets, the connections made with other planets during their retrograde cycle, and, of course, the connections it makes, or doesn’t, with your personal chart! Mercury Retrogrades have three part cycles. First is the part leading up to the Retrograde station. We’re on fresh ground, curious. Second is the Rx period when it goes ‘back’ over the part leading up to the Rx. We see things from an opposite point of view. Adjustments are made. Third and last is the part when it turns Direct, ‘forward’ again, covering that same ground the third time! We get three chances. At first we get all things in order we possibly can. Second changes and revisions are made. Third, we tidy up, polish things up, complete and present it to the world! A Station is the pause at the retrograde and direct turns. Mercury literally appears to stand still for 8 days! We mull it over, focus, anchor what we want to keep.

Retrogrades can be in two signs. This one is in Pisces. We all have Pisces in our charts, so take note where Pisces is for you. Mercury is communications, logic. It speaks/listens, is quicksilver distracted/intent when interested. It has to do with our lungs and breath, how we touch one another’s Spirits either with hands or words. We can be angry, comforting, whisper, hypnotize, sing lullabies to the baby, chat the neighborhood gossip, share vital life changing information.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers, or do everything to make it possible for that to happen so it doesn’t fall through. Escrows can fall through. They don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Sign any contract changes and make sure they do too. Get copies, save and backup.

Mercury Rx specific to Pisces. Specific? Pisces doesn’t usually do specific, but, when psychic, they can be deadly accurate! However, Pisces stuff can include changing the music, the date for the meditation event, gallery location. Pisces is the new sound machine and lighting. The cruise is cancelled or you change the itinerary. Insurance benefits, interest rates may change. You fall out of love with your belief system, and in a few days the new one isn’t for you either. Your schedule is forgotten when the surf’s up. Be sure to get receipts (not a Pisces thing) for the new wetsuit or snorkel gear, surfboard, sail. Shipbuilding materials will become unavailable or a different choice made. Your definition of beauty becomes less common, more ethereal. Art you like today becomes passe tomorrow.

How to fix the film, get the seafood for the restaurant, where to go to meditate? What is your Spiritual standing, what are your beliefs? Which water gear to buy, which boat, seaside motel? Should I be a lifeguard, scuba or surf instructor? Do I really believe that vision? What about all that debris in the ocean, what technique or organization can take of that? Save the whales, dolphins, orcas? Help the homeless or invest in coastal real estate? And we haven’t talked about climate change, rising water temps and heights. There is so much to be done. Maybe you will find some answers during this Retrograde.

Pisces will make music, take you to a magical place, sell you fresh fish, buy you a surfboard. They will meditate with you, make films, help you disappear, save your life from invisible pathogens. Thinking can bring drinking. At worst they will be the helpless hopeless victim/martyr addict, sinners. At best they are the most compassionate Angel you ever met, one of God’s own miracles. Keep connected with your sponsor; get help right away. Some things are hard to do alone. The rest of us are mushing around in the middle wanting, praying, to be a better person.

Pisces is more than the apparent physical events. It’s the sign of Spirit, of Holy Union, Beingness, Soul. In these often uncommon zones, there is illusion since we can’t see in the way we always have. We sense presence. We get lost, scared, even lonely. We think we are lost  because we just don’t ‘know’ anymore or for awhile. Wait, concentrate on awareness, how you feel. There can be confusion that takes us from our standard responses, opens us to other possibilities on new ground. It really is ok not to know. It is a useful state of consciousness that helps us to contemplate new concepts, adjust to their existence, add the facet of them that is our part to carry! But don’t expect them to remain the same as we grow with them each day! Pisces if the sign of Morph! Evolution is a living thing. Let yourself be free to ooze on into the future. Creation can be violent as a tsunami, watching a becalmed glassy sea, elegant, humble, always intriguing and magical! It can be comprehensible, or something we merge with that we surrender too and just go with it until we understand if we ever do. It can happen in a fraction of a second. Might take aeons to perfect.

Mercury is naturally connected with Gemini airy mind and Virgo daily earth services, both logical signs. In Pisces, Mercury is in the sign opposite Virgo. Virgo administers the meds very carefully, does accounting, writes cleverly, is a consummate craftsperson that is renowned for excellent technique and detail. Pisces is tuned to subtle details, a shift in the air. They go by what they feel and dream. Mercury wanders in this sign. Many things don’t matter so much as in ordinary daily thinking. Their attention floats, picking up nuances, tones, whispers, imagination. What does matter is how you succeed as a human with compassion, loving kindness, encourage others to believe in themselves. Mercury Rx here drifts among us, making assessments, seeing what needs doing, how it can be done – often so subtly no one knows you were there. Change seemingly comes from out of the blue… Ideas may be put into sound, art, an illustration, image, an imaginary story.

In Pisces, Mercury squares Gemini. Gemini is known for flitting like a butterfly from flower to flower. Some disrespect that ability; gardeners are grateful their veggie plants get pollinated! Gemini is the vital human to human connections, siblings, neighbors. Pisces is human to Soul, God, Spirit. Both of them are seeking quality connections. A square challenge here is the difference of mediums. Gemini is airy, logical; Pisces is watery, mysty. Gemini can’t see through the mist. Pisces doesn’t function literally/linearly. It takes a wee bit of time for them each to adjust to the other’s modality. Each senses the other has importance, so get frustrated when it isn’t easy at first. Go easy, take it a bit at a time.

Aspects formed 3 times during Mercury Pisces Retrograde. See the Timetable below.

There are four! Foremost is the lead aspect of the Retrograde cycle, Mercury conjunct Neptune, Pisces’s own planet! It started the whole cycle on its beginning day Feb 18! Mercury is usually quite a talker, but in Pisces may spend more than usual time listening, absorbing, feeling, even just wandering, observing. Rather than link to link reporting, there may be a standing back, getting a more comprehensive account of what is seen. Neptune is not always so easy to instantly label. He may be enjoying that space deliberately, or simply be his sometimes shy nature that prefers quiet solitude. That is not usually Mercury’s perch. There are many mysteries to explore, unravel, and that makes Mercury more curious than ever. Fascinating challenge. There is much Neptune would love to have more people know about and understand. Mercury is good at articulating visions and ideas so the average person can get it! Neptune’s visions are important, not to be lost in dream. Mercury is the documentarian of precious perception.

Mercury sextiles both planets in Capricorn, Saturn and Pluto! This is a total switch from Neptune. Capricorn is the hard core last earth sign, sign of stones, ice, glass, concrete! Saturn is his own planet, and Pluto is not to be messed with! You better make sense, have your links in a row, be able to stand up under questioning. Sextiles offer opportunities. If Mercury looks credible, perhaps intuitive Pisces will bring him through by hitting the precise mark Saturn and Pluto are looking for. There is a deeper part of each of them that is wanting much more than money. But it’s good to start by mixing both parts of your proposition together, preferably how one part can pay for the other! They might need you to do some advertising for them. The job might be small, but some potent words and placement could make all the difference in their business. Or it could be a huge job and you think twice about taking it on. Take a deep breath and see what you can do. Remember, Mercury type efforts most go awry during Mercury Retrograde. Even though this is a positive sextile, I would way over estimate your fee. This time it is better to go by the hour than by the job. The client themselves are likely to change horses midstream and it’s their choice, not yours. So the positive here is you get more hours. Put the agreed on hourly fee in your contract and everybody sign it. They could request you do some researching. That definitely needs to be paid time too.

Mercury squares Jupiter in his own sign Sagittarius. That is often not so tough, but can be when it is! Mercury can talk too much, making Jupiter crazy when he’s focused in a certain direction. They can chat too much and not get the job done. In Pisces it can be confusing and Jupiter has big imagination, so they may need to just back up and start over though the cat is already out of the bag. Both are story tellers, Mercury short, Jupiter long. Might not pay for Mercury to try to publish Jupiter’s book right now. Not the best time to make travel decisions or school/instructor decisions. Truth itself is questioned. Both planets and signs can be naive at times. Scams are afoot; guard your friends. Be careful about libel. Clarify right away. Faith is overwhelmed by distracting questions. But. If Jupiter is right on, and not being recognized, Mercury could come up with a breakthrough channel to the core and put Jupiter on the map, finally credited as he should be! Jupiter can be out in the boonies of philosophy while Mercury is right here in town getting the word out, sell, sell, selling! In Pisces?! Sure! When he believes because he has ‘seen,’ he can be inspiring and invincible!

Pisces Mercury with Uranus newly in Taurus

Uranus is Mercury’s wild card friend. They are each communicators – Mercury mind, Uranus genius. Mercury is enthralled with the amazing array of ideas Uranus concocts out of thin air! He knows he’s hearing only the half of it. Volumes are communicated on into dawn! Mercury has a million questions! Uranus can uplift the perspective, sometimes bringing Mercury to the height of perception! Uranus is challenged to satisfy this psychically insightful questioner! Uranus has been closely tied with Chiron the entire time Chiron was traversing Pisces! They have each taken on a bit of the other, a camaraderie has been established. So Mercury in Pisces is more easy with Uranus than when Mercury was in other signs. Mercury instinctually realizes this may be the chance of a lifetime!

On the other hand, Uranus has more patience in Taurus, but he is still way ahead of Mercury and at times may get bored quickly with Mercury chatter, no matter how clever it is. Might be good to connect several different times for less time. Mercury can find Taurus a little slow for his taste, yet he can be surprised by Taurus when one of those awesome things Taurus has been thinking about suddenly is complete and pops up! And a terrific idea it is, all the details worked out! So Mercury continues to check in. Mercury finds himself thinking on a larger scale and is alert to how to get more people on board. See more about the Uranus sign change

Pisces has mixed feelings about Uranus. He knows Uranus can disturb the valence at the drop of a hat. Uranus brings quakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, lightning shocks. Pisces can be excited at the time, aware of nature’s own magnificent terrifying cycles, and also be in great mourning for the destruction, loss of life. Change on this scale can clear the way for many people at once, to forge a new life more powerful than what was, up to date, a better chance to deal with climate change effectively. Pisces, so aware of suffering, is glad some of that old suffering is over. Uranus is the planet of being ahead of its time. People find themselves inventing new systems for better living for themselves and our planet.

Uranus going into Taurus is comfortable for Pisces. Taurus is restful, steady, gentle, usually kindly. Pisces can be easily frightened, so these slower moves are a relief. There is time to take a look, get acquainted. Uranus is the humanitarian inventor, not so concerned with local matters unless his work is about them. Just know that your changes at a local level can be applied to many small regions or be micro models that can be applied to larger regions!

This Mercury Retrograde is important for hosting these 51 & 84 year sign changes of Chiron and Uranus. Here is the entire Event Timetable:
