Bowl Chart with Groups and Pairs, Venus Retrograde! Jupiter conjunct Pluto, sextile Neptune!

Gemini 2020 New Moon Animated Spirit Twins by James R Eads & Chris McDaniel

Illustrator James R. Eads collaborated with animator Chris McDaniel aka The Glitch! See this image ‘live’ Just click on it when you get to the site ~ James is a super lucky famous June 6, 1989 Gemini, Sun conjunct Jupiter! He is prolific in a variety of styles! James & his crew.

In the dark of a starlit night or in a dream in the ethers of all being, magic happens. We are all connected, one to another, body and Spirit, Earth to the Galaxies.

This chart is unique because it is a Bowl with 5 pairings! The Bowl is in less than 180°, planets spread across all 6 signs but there are groupings and pairings! The first group is Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn, the base planets of the Bowl, close with Saturn, Capricorn’s planet. Saturn is now in Aquarius, to retrograde back into Capricorn July 1! He is previewing Aquarius then will return to revamp and solidify Capricorn’s techniques before Saturn’s final entry into Aquarius and prepare for Pluto into Aquarius March 2023! The transition from traditional building to evolutionary humanitarian planetary work is so apparent with pandemic COVID-19 changes.

Jupiter with Pluto was first exact April 4. It is now retrograding back to make its second/retrograde conjunction with Pluto June 29. They have been close since March 12, shifting perceptions back and forth, tweaking Capricorn structures, laws, responsibilities, economic twists, environmental and human rights. There are secrets, revelations, lies and truths, bald faced power jockeying, greed, fear, deaths and saves. Many are seeing the potentials of incredible new options.

Jupiter makes things best, bigger or exaggerated, the worst – like C-19. Pluto is at his microscope looking for that vaccine. Pluto can save your life, make money or take your life and all your money, bankruptcy. It can bond your relationship for a lifetime, or there you are over filing divorce papers against that cheater! Jupiter can be schooling, trips, publishing, truth and the consequences if you have been a liar no longer getting away with it.  Jupiter is so much the traveler, but with the Virus, and Jupiter in Capricorn, the sign of limitations, necessities only, no such luck for now. Pluto can be the scandal, fighting over inheritances, funding, or fund the most amazing healing research and a center with exceptional care for victims. We have been seeing amazing caring and people stepping up to the plate. You see this aspect has a great range, extremes. And both can happen at once. Keep your life clean or Jupiter in Capricorn the law, Pluto the Police will be knocking on your door. If you have the means, do what you can to help survivors, heal the environment long term, provide significant education. Apply for help if you need it. Sometimes we just can’t do it all alone. One day you will be the one that’s doing the giving. Bless you and keep you. When you can, pay it forward.

Jupiter Conjunct Pluto will continue on in their close conjunction on through July 30! The third and final aspect is Nov 12, THE aspect of the Nov 3 Presidential Election. You can see how crucial this aspect is. In Capricorn there is much long term work of necessity. Set your goals and stick with them, revising and updating as you go. DO what makes a difference.

The other group is at the other end of the Bowl! A FOUR planets stellium in air sign Gemini! It is the second of two 2020 four planet stelliums not in Capricorn. Within Gemini are two pairs! First is our New Moon! Mama Moon brings Sun news of the world right on down to the neighbors and Gemini’s siblings! Moon feels the breezes, breathes deeply, listens with her Spirit. Sun puts his Light on the information, infuses it with warmth and the ability to see it as it is. He gives heart to the matter, adds his creative colors, makes it personal, his spiritual logo! Together he and Moon dance their link, communications that inspire us! 

The last two planets are at the same degree, Miss Venus retrograde and Sir Mercury soon to be starting their June 17 seven day DOUBLE RETROGRADE! For now they are sharing sweet nothings and somethings, soothing and cooing. Venus has told Mercury what she wanted when they conjuncted earlier in the day. Since Mercury is leaving while Venus is going back, he will take her messages with him and lead the Bowl, deliver hers and its messages.

There will be some revisions because they have both been square Neptune. This is Mercury’s only square to Neptune and only conjunction with Venus in the double retrograde sequence. He wants to help Venus, but she is at odds herself and that puts him at odds too. She has felt a bit confused, not sure what to believe anymore. She watches, wonders. Is tempted to buy treats, but doesn’t want them either, or binges. The usual choices are not working. She wants more than fun; she wants something that means something. Yet Neptune is not as readable as usual and she is left on her own to work it out. Feeling a bit lost is not a Gemini M. O., not logical, yet it is observably interesting. She may find a treasure at an obscure location…? It calls her somewhere she has never been before. It may be more Spirit than visible or touchable. 

Venus squares Neptune three times during her retrograde cycle, this is the retrograde square. It is a significant aspect because Neptune is activated NINE times during the Venus retrograde cycle! One of the cycle’s most important aspects is the Jupiter conjunct Pluto’s companion aspect Jupiter’s RX sextile to Neptune! It is July 27, the day of Venus’ last square to Neptune, the day before Venus’ RX cycle ends! It is the goal of the entire cycle! Being an outer planet sextile, it is likely to prevail beyond passing doubts with great promise. But happening three times, those small niggly doubts will be remembered for a while and double checks will be made to be sure progress is better than it was feared it wouldn’t be.

Neptune, in his own sign Pisces, represents a psychic/spiritual dimension beyond average, is the Great Guardian of Spirituality. He is of a very different element, water with no definite form. Gemini, Venus, nor Mercury in Gemini, one of his own signs, are immersed the same way as water, but they are heady in air, logical. Water and air have currents and winds, flow that carries you along their streams, but the view sure is different! At worst Neptune in Pisces is the suffering out of control addict. At best Neptune has empathy, extraordinary visions, does magic and Soul Saving!

Within the Bowl are Mars 6 Pisces, Chiron 8 Aries and Uranus 8 Taurus. Mars in Pisces is spurring them to take more action! 

Chiron in Aries and Uranus in Taurus are neighboring, only 18 mins apart! Tune in June 10 as they make their third from the last semisextile of their 13 yearlong sets of aspects that completes in 2021! Chiron is sizzling in fiery Aries, a good business person as well as a healer/teacher, terrific consultant! In this combination a promotional organization would suit his Spirit! Supporting new students, think tanks, getting groups started! Avant-garde ideas, exotic explorations on land or in the lab, unique sports, research for new cures, looking for leaders! All would be exciting ventures! They have been 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 

Mars wants them to act in behalf of the underdog, to help their suffering, remember they were once there too. He’s encouraging them to call their formidable talents together to significantly change this planet. Mars in Pisces is super sensitive to pivot points that can be used, that need attention to speed progress in a good way. Mars makes a pairing with Neptune by sign. Neptune in his own sign Pisces is a powerful visionary! Music, art, dreams, movies, seeing each other on our cell phones, are all potent ways of seeing, inspiration! Just seeing the sea, ocean sports, ships, seeing the magic of oceanic weather and creatures of the reefs, the depth, not seeing land, gives a broadening perspective that requires a certain faith in the unknowable, unconquerable. We can see further, forever, not know and still continue. Mars can be a silent partner in Pisces, but make no mistake, he is always a leader.  

If you use Chiron and Lilith in your interpretations, they make a sixth pair. In Aries, Mars’ sign, they have their own power of Leadership. Chiron as healer never promised healing would be easy. In fact, you really have to want to live, to heal and have to step up to the plate. You are not the only person on the planet and at the same time we need you to do your special part. People you don’t even know are counting on you! Lilith says Amen! She can be a tough old bird or a formidable innocent, strong at minimum. She brings women to power that never expected to be there! Some have been so trained to think they aren’t strong it is a shock for them to find out what they can do. What’s even crazier is when they realize they always could have done it!

Use all these points of grouped or paired power consciously. When you have a problem, review these potentials and apply them…even after this chart has passed! Its imprint will still be with you.  

Spirit knows these are not easy times…  “The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.”
― by May 29, 1906 Gemini T.H. White, The Once and Future King   His chart!
 
Learning it is! Gather it in this beautiful Bowl chart, in your life!

Sagittarius – Gemini Full Strawberry Moon Lunar Eclipse!

Friday June 5 at 12:12 PM Pacific 15 Sagittarius/Gemini 34 Full Moon MARS/Neptune TSquare!

Moon to Mercury Bowl Chart, 5 Pairs! Venus Retrograde.

Gemini 2020 Full Moon Adorable Art Journal Script!This adorable journal page is by Jenna about her daughter with the forest guardian Totoro. Studio Ghibli! Maybe Jenna is a Gemini; maybe her daughter is a Gemini… Jenna has twin letter Ns in her name. Double letters and many Jims are Gemini. G and J sound alike and Ms are like conjoined Ns. 

2020 Eclipses! This penumbral eclipse starts the summer season! It will be visible in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, but so sorry, not visible in the US! 
Second eclipse this season: June 20, 21, 2020 — Annular Solar Eclipse also not visible in the US.
Third eclipse this season: July 5, 2020 — Penumbral Lunar Eclipse  Barely perceptible…
This fall we will have only two, Nov 30 and Dec 14.

This is another Bowl chart with groupings and pairings. Gemini starts a sequence of 3 Full Moon Bowl Charts, Gemini, Cancer and Cancer – two New Moons in Cancer! This one is a little over the 180 from side to side, but is within the rule to be a Bowl chart. The base planet is Moon, and she is making a run for it in Sagittarius! Opposite Venus and Sun she knows what is wanted and pushing the planets to find the way. She wants to take us home, travel a path of learning, keep us all well and in good spirits! She signals to Sun that she is on the outskirts now, but will be there again when he is in her sign Cancer. That will be some homecoming!

She may be feeling a bit impatient squaring Mars in Pisces. Usually Mars does the prodding, but he is midway through Pisces in the depths of Spirit. He is searching the archives for visions that need updating, put back into action, visions that are most pertinent to our times. Not only is he IN Pisces, but conjunct the Pisces planet, the old man of the sea, Neptune! Together they can dive to the deepest realms, or whip up a storm in no time!

This position is important for two reasons. 1) Mars and Neptune are at the exact midpoint between Moon and Sun, Mars EXACT at 15°! In squares like this it is called a T Square, Mars at the T point! He is equally influencing and being influenced by both Moon and Venus/Sun. Moon offers big ideas, fun, confidence and encouragement. She lends a far sighted perspective, potential broad minded cover-the-bases purpose. Mars inspires her to take a deep look, renew her faith, push further than she has ever been before! Venus Rx and Sun in Gemini are full of frisky ideas, between them, trillions a mile a minute! They are getting the word out to people just as fast as they can go! Mars in Pisces is adept at psychic perception and not only keeps up but tells them what it means and why we should get to work! They go and print that! Mars in Pisces is no stranger to having collective perception! Venus helps Mars by showing him the keepers, the loves of life, reminds him to swim in beauty. She squared Mars June 2. They may have flirted or been a little annoyed with each other, but no matter, they are going opposite directions…he forward, she backing up. Sun lights their Souls to the fathoms of being. Enlightenment not only shows the lighted Path, but how not to stumble or doubt. The Lights are ON like a lighthouse beacon! 

In addition, Sun is outrageously in his annual conjunction with fixed star Rigel 16 Gemini 50! With Sun, according to Robson, who is usually pretty glum, ‘It gives benevolence, honor, riches, happiness, glory, renown and inventive or mechanical ability.’ In another excerpt, author uncited, ‘…a quick rise in life is promised on account of a strong, inherent will power, love of action, and a lucky hand in enterprise. A continuous battle to retain an acquired position has to be waged. This fight at the same time stimulates an increase in vigor. Even in spite of unhelpful aspects, success and reaching the set aim can be secured by this powerful concentration. If however the native is not cautious or has an attack of weakness, failure and disappointments, a fall from success will follow. Tradition regarding the influence of Rigel is quite contradictory, implying again that the cosmogram must be fully analyzed. After the first world war, at the time of the first transatlantic flights, Elsbeth Ebertin noted a connection of Rigel to the Sun and Moon, in charts of several world record pilots, leading to sudden difficulties in the carrying out of planned enterprises resulting in failures to reach the set target.’ 

2) The other super important reason is Mars is getting his mojo in Pisces. He is immersing every molecule in the Dream that he may function wholly in its initiation when he gets into Aries, his own sign. There he is the leader, the first responder, consultant, inspires others to take action. If he can do it, they can do it! He will start in Aries  June 27, retrogrades Sep 9, directs Nov 13, enters Taurus Jan 6. He is in Aries 6+ months! During his retrograde, Mercury makes his third 2020 retrograde concurrently from Oct 13 to Nov 3, Election Day! You can see why what is discovered in this time is so important. What happens now leads directly to then! Not only does Mars lead, but the retrogrades give him 2nd chances, reviewing and better options than he started with! He stirs the brew for change! Mercury’s Rx in Scorpio/Libra, recalibrates relationships of all kinds! Mercury is more deep in communications, and finding more ways to communicate. Mars sees that happening right before his eyes and instantly incorporates it in his new skill sets, passing it on to others immediately! It is not meant to necessarily be a peaceful or easy time. Have a firm grip on your purpose and establish a strong support team. Expect change. Be flexible with how things get done. This will be both during and after certain Virus conditions. Some will be amped to make new beginnings, others will still be in recovery, grief. Please be kind.

By position in the Bowl Chart, Mars, a planet of leadership, is powerful at the Midpoint between Moon and Venus/Sun. Mercury, as we see is strongly associated with Mars, and is technically the leading planet of the Bowl. He is now in Cancer, slowing to Retrograde. He is trine Mars, but doesn’t make the exact trine as Mars goes forward faster and leaves him. Ideas were exchanged, He wished him well and to take good care of himself. As the Bowl leading planet and in Cancer, Mercury has more family and nurturing work to do during Venus Retrograde. DOUBLE RETROGRADE! He has a lot on his mind. Many are especially needing that unconditional love now. Eating right, tending our feelings, home and employment security, home schooling, are at the tops of many lists. Caring communications, checking in are essential.

Mercury sextiled Uranus and squared Chiron for the first of three times this very morning! Sextile Uranus was some good connections with friends, such great strange but genius ideas! Good Sci Fi! Square Chiron, it may not sell right away, if ever. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. Or, unapologetically write it and keep writing. Save and keep each version as you go. What doesn’t fit here may be the lead for a second episode! Give it some time. Work out any publishing problems. The upcoming retrogrades may open up some options! Check in with friends, face your business/employment/financial security matters. Check in with proven advisors. Develop a more sustainable outlook about your future. The world is changing as we speak. Some old ways are being rooted out, some new ones are having growing pains. Goes with the territory. Smart networking makes a huge difference. We can put our heads together ~ as they say, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts!

Chiron in Aries and Uranus in Taurus are neighboring, only 5 mins apart, make their aspect exactly at 9°! Those of you with chart factors at 8, 9, 10, especially in Aries or Taurus, will feel the touch. Tune in 0:26 AM Pacific June 10 as they will make their third from the last semisextile of their 13 yearlong sets of aspects that completes in 2021! Chiron is sizzling in fiery Aries, a good business person as well as a healer/teacher, terrific consultant! In this combination a promotional organization would suit his Spirit! Supporting new students, think tanks, phenomenal networking, getting groups started! Avant-garde ideas, exotic explorations on land or in the lab, unique sports, research for new cures, looking for leaders! All would be exciting ventures! They have been 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 

Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn are still watching out for them all! Sustainability is at their fingertips! They are less than 2° apart now! Jupiter makes things best, bigger or exaggerated, the worst – like C-19. Pluto is at his microscope looking for that vaccine. Pluto can resurrect or save your life, make money or take your life and all your money, bankruptcy. It can bond your relationship for a lifetime, or there you are filing divorce papers against that cheater! Jupiter can be schooling, trips, publishing, truth and the consequences if you have been a liar no longer getting away with it.  Jupiter is so much the traveler, but with the Virus, and Jupiter in Capricorn, the sign of limitations, necessities only, no such luck for now. Pluto can be the scandal, fighting over inheritances, funding, or fund the most amazing healing research and a center with exceptional care for victims. We have been seeing amazing caring and people stepping up to the plate. You see this aspect has a great range, extremes. And both can happen at once. Keep your life clean or Jupiter in Capricorn the law, Pluto the Police, will be knocking on your door. If you have the means, do what you can to help survivors, heal the environment long term, provide significant education. Apply for help if you need it. Sometimes we just can’t do it all alone. One day you will be the one that’s doing the giving. Bless you and keep you. When you can, pay it forward. 

Jupiter Conjunct Pluto are in close connection now through their second conjunction June 29 and on through July 30! The third and final aspect is Nov 12, THE aspect of the Nov 3 Presidential Election. You can see how crucial this aspect is. In Capricorn there is much long term work of necessity. Set your goals and stick with them, revising and updating as you go. DO what makes a difference. 

Seek visionary thinkers with long term plans! We are on the threshold, we can do this!

Taurus 2020 Balcony Italian Woman Accordion Singing C-19

Venus is love and affection; Gemini is Communications. Italians have made world news during Covid-19 singing and making music from their balconies. Some are known performers, making beauty for all! Bless them, how prezioso. Grazie from all of us in the world! We send our love to you. Volare from the balconies! 

► During Cancer: June 24 the Double Rx ends with Venus turning forward! 6.29 Jupiter Rx conjuncts Pluto. 7.1 Saturn back into his sign Capricorn during Mercury Rx.

► 5.20.20 Update: May is the 2nd month of the Double Retrograde process, June coming right along. Stay tuned in and use it deliberately. Stay on your long term purpose.

At this time, our communications mean so much. We wish it could be in person hugs, but we wait and find other ways to make our feelings clear by respecting distance – now another form of communication.

Venus, besides being in Gemini, is the planet of two signs, Taurus and Libra. Taurus says these are inalienable organic rights. Venus is blessed with clever in Libra and may be the attorney who stands up for those rights. Venus presents with beauty and dignity, shows the attractiveness and value, the wealth, common respect for all.

Venus in Gemini started her Retrograde CYCLE April 9 and doesn’t complete the entire cycle until July 28, so most of her process will be during the Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. She will be finding grace in communications. Jupiter wants Truth while Pluto opts for privacy. There will be some challenging delicate moments. Venus loving kindness will make all the difference.

Mother’s Day experiences happen during the Venus Rx Station – the time Venus appears to be standing still in the sky. Our Mother Love will be reassessed in view of C-19 experiences. How have we done as Mothers, children? Will we connect in a more meaningful way? What will make us all, men and women, be better spiritual Mother’s to our planet?

Stations bring special emphasis! A Station is when a planet literally appears to stand still in the sky at the retrograde and direct turning points. Mercury has four days before and four days after the turns. Venus takes a bit longer and the number of days varies. Stations help us slow down. They are a pause when we are able to be still to receive, focus, take time to think, anchor important ideas we want to keep. The longer the station the more its strength.

Venus covers 5 to 21 Gemini 50 retrograde May 12 to June 24. Her 12 day 1° Rx station at 20/21 Gemini is from May 5 to 19. Her 16 day 1° Direct station at 5/6 Gemini is from June 16 to July 1.

Mercury covers 5 to 14 Cancer retrograde June 17 to July 12. His 8 day Rx station at 14 Cancer is June 14 to 21. His 8 day Direct station is at 5 Cancer from July 8 to 15.

If you have factors in your chart at or very close to those degrees, you will be activated, especially at the station degrees. Check in with your astrologer if you have significant plans at those times.

Plan ahead for what you want to be done, as much as possible, well before those times. Gemini is communications, speaking venues, scheduling, gear needed for that, phones, computers. Take care of your hands, lungs and breath. Cancer is business matters, your community, things at home especially in the kitchen and sleeping quarters, relationships with women and children, take care of your cat and your breasts/stomach. Get images you need, take care of your photography/albums.

Double Retrograde! This Venus Rx is especially important and complex for two reasons! 1) Because Mercury has an entire Retrograde cycle concurrently WITHIN the Venus Rx cycle! They will both be Rx together from June 17 to 24! Mercury Mind and Venus Matter will be atwiggle! 2) The brew will be especially stirred because Venus is in Gemini, one of Mercury’s signs! Mercury has ideas by the zillions on any normal day. But Venus wants to know what they are worth and who said so!

Plus, there are THREE important planetary events during and following the Venus/Mercury retrograde! 

Most important are any major outer planet combinations that happen just before, during or immediately after a retrograde cycle. The planetary connections Venus or Mercury make during the retrograde cycle, especially the ones that repeat, indicate part of its purpose. Venus and Mercury help prepare us for planetary aspects that follow, whether the aspects are in the sky or in your personal chart. And, of course, the connections Venus and Mercury make, or don’t, with your chart factor in personally! See your astrologer if you need help with this!

1. The first is the ongoing Jupiter conjunct Pluto. This Venus Retrograde cycle is wholly concurrent with that period! The second exact Jupiter conjunct Pluto is June 29 just after Venus turns Direct June 24. As we have already seen, the conjunction can make you millions or make a huge mistake and lose a few. It can exaggerate your difficult condition or expand a good thing beyond your wildest dreams! It can be sadly obsessive, exceptionally cruel, or a healer with the most extraordinary abilities comes your way. In the US the particular importance of this aspect will be at the US Presidential Elections November 3. Its third aspect, the mature aspect, will be Nov 12 just after the election, in other words, THE aspect of the Elections, exactly at the same degree and sign as the recent Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto!

The April 4 Jupiter conjunct Pluto was the aspect being felt at the end of the Feb/March Mercury Rx cycle. Now it is the trigger aspect starting at the beginning of the Venus Retrograde Cycle! It will be what we are thinking about throughout the Venus/Mercury retrogrades!

Venus in Gemini is blessed and skilled at communication. Leaving no stone unturned, she will access diverse sources, gather information, reassess the value of what she learns as an entirety. Like with Mercury, Gemini’s planet, we have a good chance of learning a lot. Mercury in Cancer literally looks at the underbelly, what people -especially women – feel, what they need, how they sit in our community, how our culture is doing. What kind of history are we making? Recovery is not enough. They want more and what is best for our and our children’s future.

2. Jupiter Sextile Neptune  June 13 Jupiter Rx in Capricorn is back to 5° sextile Neptune in Pisces. July 1 it is back to 3°, getting closer and closer until the conjunction July 27. This is a super magical aspect riding in the background. Jupiter is judge; Capricorn is spiritual law. Neptune in Pisces is the visionary business of all. Many of us are rethinking what is really important, what we would like to renovate, what to build for a more sustainable future. We are more aware of Planetary kinship, a spiritual consensus more important than government, power and profits alone. Jupiter sees the extraordinary potential, can map it out in realistic terms and Capricorn has the expertise to make it so! True Believers unite!

Jupiter makes its 2nd and 3rd aspects July 27 and Oct 12. The day Jupiter makes that second July 27 aspect is right between the very last days of the Mercury and Venus Rx cycles July 25 and 28. Mercury in Cancer, Capricorn’s opposite, has been watching keenly, feeling the progress – lacks and successes. Mercury, so aware of the importance of Neptune’s insights and visions, spreads the word of the upcoming possibilities. The information and insights Mercury and Venus glean will be passed on to the Jupiter/Neptune archives for up leveling. From then on, Jupiter and Neptune stay close to 2 degrees or less until the third and last aspect Oct 12, so the aspect is virtually continuous for that period and a little before and after. The third Jupiter/Neptune aspect is at 18 Capricorn 45, conjunct the important Oct 30 2018 Pluto/Ecliptic degree! In turn, the Oct 12 2020 aspect is the closest preceding aspect to the Nov 3 Presidential Election. What Mercury and Venus learn now is significant because it will be telegraphed right down the line. Pay attention and don’t forget. Make notes, document, review at future times.

3. While Saturn is in Aquarius it squares Uranus in Taurus from 5° or less starting from the March 21 entry time until May 1. At that point Saturn slows to retrograde while Uranus continues forward. It doesn’t make the three actual squares until 2021! Saturn puts the brakes on change that is too rapid or not natural. He stopped the airlines due to the pandemic, is limiting friendships and networks, looking for better long term ways to build our new future!  

July 1 Saturn Rx leaves Aquarius, goes back into his own sign Capricorn! The entire first part and the retrograde part of the Venus Rx cycle are entirely during Saturn in Aquarius. Just six days after Venus turns direct, Saturn goes back into Capricorn to rebuild now that there are new specs. Mercury is still Rx at that time, so still has questions, like ‘How is this shift going to work out?’ Mercury in Cancer has practically photographic memory, so easily digs back to see what differences occur. It can see what failed and how it failed and guide us to help prevent that happening again.  Saturn in Aquarius   Saturn in Capricorn

Saturn’s sign change has more significance than at first glance. In Aquarius it starts a long chain of Aquarian/Uranian aspects through Feb 2022. Saturn remains in Aquarius until March 7 2023, just days before Pluto’s sign change into Aquarius March 23, 2023! In AQ it prepares us for Pluto’s sign change!

Venus retrograde cycles are longer than Mercury’s, so we are traversing a 4 months period. 

Venus makes two repeated planetary aspects during its retrograde cycle, April 9 to July 28. Three times each it sextiles Chiron and squares Neptune. With Chiron favorably, communications are good for healing, business and marriage depending on how it fits with your personal chart. The squares with Neptune aren’t sure. There could be mix ups, lost papers or people. It could bring broken dreams, encounters with addiction, or more kindness than you have ever seen or known. Venus in Gemini can have so much data that it doesn’t settle well at first, is overwhelming, or Venus seems selfish or glib. Relationships are reevaluated. Sources of income will change.

Everyone calm down, talk about it, go away and think about it, come back to it. Probably good to wait until both retrogrades are well over. See how things are after the dust settles. Most astrologers wouldn’t suggest marrying with both of these particular planets retrograde. Mercury is contracts; Venus is love and regard. Not good to be changing your mind on that one after the contract is made. It’s good if you have a revelation and save yourself from yourself before the contract is made! Business can be tweaked or just let go. Healing can bring reform and change that keeps changing, hopefully for the better. It is not a spiritual problem if you disengage from that particular healer or healing modality, teacher. Learning never stops.

Eight aspects are made to Chiron in Aries, good with Venus, some challenging, some inspiring and empowering! Look into new ways of teaching and healing, doing business that has never been done before. Scout things during the retrogrades. If you still feel the same way after the retrogrades, see if anyone would like to partner up and give it a go! There will be many opportunities!

Nine aspects are being made to Neptune in its own sign Pisces! Some will be challenges, others will get Neptune up and going walkabout, but the big one is the July 27 Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn, powerful good fortune and focus, sextile Neptune of dreams and visions to come true! Jupiter retrograde has come back to see how things are doing, what has changed, what can make it better than was thought before. Jupiter will tweak a few things. It won’t be entirely finished, but will be put back on track, centered for the future on or about Oct 12. Get on it! Believe!

Between Mercury, Venus, Sun and Mars, half the signs will be being covered, from Aquarius to Leo! You can follow them per planet along the Timeline. 

In the Feb/March Mercury Rx it sextiled Uranus from Pisces to Taurus expressing its dreams that Taurus could be alert to secure them. This time Mercury sextiles from Cancer back to Taurus. Uranus in Taurus likes to take sensible chances and often surprises us with how well it works though we thought it was a long shot. Cancer is a good trader, senses the mood of the people, knows when things are hot and cold, whether they feel safe or not. It instinctively assesses a person’s capability. Cancer is a great business sign, especially for families and women, working at home or with items for our homes. They are aware of seasonal changes, the tides of time. We are now ripe for innovative planetary wide new businesses. Cancer likes to Mother, so will love helping get new startups going! Those that focus on community, sustainability will go the furthest. Though Cancer can be old fashioned, when they make up their mind to change, it happens quickly! Solid new Uranian friends will speed things along fluidly! 

FIXED STARS

Venus with Aldebaran at 9 Gemini 47. Robson gives a mixed review of Aldebaran. ‘It gives honor, intelligence, eloquence, steadfastness, integrity, popularity, courage, ferocity, a tendency to sedition, a responsible position, public honors and gain of power and wealth through others, but its benefits seldom prove lasting and there is also danger of violence and sickness. With Venus: Honor through literature, music or art, creative abilities, favorable for health and marriage.’

Venus with Rigel at 16 Gemini 50. Robson gives a more favorable account than his usual: ‘It gives benevolence, honor, riches, happiness, glory, renown and inventive or mechanical ability.’ With Venus: Honors or favors in middle life, good and influential marriage especially if female.’

Mercury makes its Retrograde Station at 14 Cancer 45, conjunct the powerful Fixed Star Sirius at 14 Cancer 05! The planetary turns in the retrograde cycles are important because they appear to be standing still for many days from the point of view of Earth. Mercury stations are 8 days, 4 before, 4 after. There is steeping, focus, incorporating and stabilizing what’s deemed to be a keeper. Sirius, the Dog-star, is the brightest star in the night sky, called the Prince of Princes! Robson says the Mercury/Sirius combination can bring ‘Great business success, help through influential people, worries unnecessarily, associated with the Church, physical defect through accident.’ UK astrologer Deborah Houlding says ‘…with its quick reaction, high energy and impetuous nature, in many respects fits the profile of ‘the puppy’, one of the titles by which it was traditionally known.’ At another level, Michael, the Archangel of the powerful First Ray, a brilliant blue, is associated with Sirius.

Aldebaran and Sirius are both Behenian fixed stars. Aldebaran is associated with Mars and VENUS. Sirius is with Jupiter, fame and fortune! Per Wiki: The Behenian fixed Stars are in a selection of fifteen stars considered especially useful for magical applications in the medieval astrology of Europe and the Arab world. Their name derives from Arabic bahman, “root,” as each was considered a source of astrological power for one or more planets.

Mercury Retrograde DNA!

About Retrogrades!  

Retrogrades are fascinatingly complex! The wild dynamics of retrograde cycles are, as viewed from Earth, that a planet appears to go forward, backward, then forward over the same ground three times, and if outer planets sometimes five, times! During that time, all the other planets are moving too, so even when a retrograde planet is going ‘backward’ over the same area, they are ALL going forward, even the retrograde planet! It’s illogical, but that’s what happens. Venus retrogrades about every 19 months for only about 40 days. Only 7–8% of the population has it in their natal chart. Mercury retrogrades 3 times a year, every 6 years 4 times. Mercury actually spends little time retrograde. In fact, only 18% of the population is born during Mercury retrograde! Mars retrogrades every 25/26 months for 60-80 days.

The good part is where people have retrograde planets they often have a special skill. The most successful Corporations often have a lot of retrograde planets – they keep working it until they are best, and they keep working it as time goes on. They go back, keep up, update! The type of special communication skills of Mercury retrograde depend on which sign, house and planets Mercury connects with in your chart and what type of connections are made. Check out the planets of your own chart and charts of babies born during retrogrades!

Venus makes beauty wherever she goes, whenever possible. She loves her possessions whether lovely things or sweet people. Venus is gifted with social skills, to cross boundaries of different cultures, faiths, skin color, genders, sexuality, financial standing, eccentricity. Sometimes she has low self esteem, out of fear can be selfish. Usually she is kindly and giving. Balance is best. She’s often exceptionally attractive and in love with love. Charm.

Mercury is the planet of the Mind, thinking, our attention, our breath and lungs, how we learn to learn, communication skills, gathering data, a hand shake, the laying on of hands. All of these are essential. Every Retrograde is unique by sign and where it happens in your chart! As time goes on the planetary backdrop changes. Context shifts. Retrogrades, like any other astro phenomena, evolve.

What a journey! If you are traveling, what amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. Maybe what’s behind is out of sight, a memory; what’s ahead is a mystery! Inward turns, like retrograde, give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. Outward bends like turning forward/Direct, extend our vision of potentials. This pair, being with air and water, shows us natural flow, keeps our Spirit fluid, makes us aware of deeper channels within us. Each turn, that Station, 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 have room to occur, new ideas are teased into action! Potential is remembered and we are rededicated.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers about issues of the sign(s) Mercury is retrograde in! Or, do everything to make it possible so it doesn’t fall through. Escrows can fall through. Use experienced brokers who can get it done no matter what. People don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! You lose your cell. You get lost, turned around. Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Date and 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.

This VENUS Retrograde is in GEMINI, Mercury’s sign, so it will be a lot like Mercury Retrograde. Venus flavoring Gemini will bring a longing for poetic exchanges, a genteel sharing. Venus loves touch and in Gemini signs up for a massage series (with your mask on, of course). Pretty up! Make up, clothes, add some new colors! Your posture, demeanor. Some voice training? Look like what you want to become to be! Gemini may try on a few roles, so give it some time to feel it. Is it what you really want or is it a step in the right direction? Write a few stories, make up a new resume, a fantastic name for your new business, advertise about what’s new. Let it change, morph, come by happenstance. Follow what’s in your spirit! Talk with your neighbors and sibs! Extend the loop to Soul Brothers and Sisters, kindred beings.

Our values, Venus, are significantly changing. Many are spending time at home, rethinking their choices in view of what’s deeply important from the context of life and death. Many are wanting to make their life count, to heal the planet to be a better place for our loved ones, children, young people, elders. Venus retrograde in Gemini will look at many facets as it considers all the angles. It may seem selfish to dwell on oneself so, but Gemini knows we all breathe the same air and we are all spiritually connected. In a sense, are all One. Each of our personal choices affects the web of life of all.

Wait on cosmetic body work or on starting long term dental work. Wait on redecorating, buying a new wardrobe, changing your company logo. You may decide to postpone Engagements and Marriages. It may be wise to wait until things have cleared a bit after the virus and the new economics many are facing. Many new businesses will be starting! Or it may be a special time to preciously hold each other to our hearts and together help each other through this difficult time into amazing new beginnings.

Clearly life doesn’t stop during retrogrades, and not all people’s charts are connected to all retrogrades. If your chart is connected to any given one, you will need to do your best and what you can. You can’t explain this to all people, maybe not your boss or even a good friend. Astrology? You’re nuts! Ok so there are times to find ways to stall or not connect, delay. You can estimate the possibilities of others not bringing certain papers to the meeting and bring them yourself, save the day! You can ask for a review of the current decisions 4 days or more after Mercury goes Direct/forward. If there are important must do meetings, Dr’s appts, call in advance to verify that the date and right time are on their calendars or yours! C-19 has changed a lot of longstanding appts. Don’t be surprised if the part didn’t come for your vehicle repair. Verify it is ordered, being sent to the correct address, the expected arrival date!

Document your work and events daily, save ALL emails and backup safely off the premises. No giving your passwords to anyone. If all goes well, fine. If not, all the pertinent information you need is available.

If you have other favorable prevailing aspects, especially with outer planets, then it is likely changes will ultimately be to your benefit. Do check with your astrologer for your good dates and times of day to make the best of it!

Be of good cheer, Things are going to be ok! Tutto Andra Bene!

Tutto Andra Bene. Everything will be OK.

Speak good words, think good thoughts, do good deeds. Pay it forward.
