Aries 2019 Celestial HighLights

Aries ~ It’s Alpha Time!

Aries 2019 Bicycles Women Harper's Weekly 1868 Historic Wheels of Change

In the late 1800s women forayed into the world of bicycles, and into a new world!

In Alpha-Omega thinking, Alpha is the beginning! In Alpha dog thinking, it is undisputed leadership! One might be naive, inexperienced, innocent, wide-eyed with discovery and anticipation. Alpha power brooks no fear, expects instant obedience, no failure, true courage.

Spirited! It’s from the collective experience of celebrating leaders who have ‘risen’ from the dead, to the unique personal experience of our Kundalini awakening! There can be technically excellent leaders, supercharged athletes, or the ones who win the Spirit Award. All hold a vital place on the team.

1st responders have another form of zoomies! Aries weren’t born to sit…and wait… Walking meditations are best. They are firey on-their-feet adventurers, great come and go consultants with the latest information. Their clean senses serve them well to be in the right place at the right time and do the right thing. They ‘get’ the situation instantly and save us from the dragons!

‘First’ is the word! Without a thought Aries takes on what’s never been done before, seems natural to them, and often succeed. The time has come and whether they plant the seeds or do the deed, yippee! We’re up and running, surprised, pleased. If one person can take the chance, surely we can carry on for them, making their effort count.

Aries 2019 Sunrise Wildflowers Monument Valley by Lars Leber!Aries is THE Sunrise sign! The 0° Aries, first degree of the first sign, place in a natural, elemental astrology wheel. It is the Ascendant or Rising Sign. That is the Alpha position in any chart, no matter what sign it faced into when you were born. It is the Sunrise position, the place where the Sun ascends out of darkness, out of the Dreamtime! It is a fresh start every single day no matter what the weather. We are innovative, refreshed with clear new ideas! As Spring Equinox it symbolizes a balance point between spring and fall, sunrise and sunset, our self and others.

Above is the stunning Wildflowers at Sunrise – Monument Valley, Arizona by photographer Lars Leber. Order one, see it in big beauty at his site!

Besides being of the day’s fiery golden beginning, Aries colors are red and white. Red is for taking action, the blood of the lamb, the sacrifices we make to bring change, for courage to fight a good fight. White is for purity, to always be true in Spirit. Red and a bit of gold and white is for those orange California poppies, the sacred cups of Spring dew. Red and white is the sweetest of pinks like the Dorset poppies, the gentle loving version of red. Throw in a bit of blue with the red and you’ve got the lavenders and purples so common to many precious medicinal herbs.

Where we have Aries in our charts, is where our brain functions at top speed! Mars, the Aries planet, is where we take action, and our Ascendant/Rising Sign, first house, take action in the flavor of our signs there. Aries has to do with our head. Sometimes we bump it, other times, with quick reflexes, we duck the low hanging tree limb just in time. Many an Aries has a renowned collection of headgear, from remarkable hats, headbands, assorted caps, visors, helmets, headlamps. Their hair may be short and sleek or tied up to fit their fast lifestyle. It’s a heady life and they can have great determination, a force to be reckoned with!

While their brain rarely gets tired, their body might, but it’s hard to get them to slow down or stop. They prefer to refuel en route. Or they need frequent brisk rowdy exercise to keep that amazing brain pumped up to top flight awareness! Aries are often race winners, sprinters more than marathoners. Bicycling holds strong with them. It’s independent and non polluting. Aries are terrific mechanics when emergency repairs are needed whether it is their bike or another vehicle. High performance bars and drinks and minimal gear let them fly at top speed! Personal and planetary energy sourcing is important to them.

Historically, you might enjoy National Geographic‘s Wheels of Change: How Women Rode the Bicycle to Freedom (With a Few Flat Tires Along the Way). It tells the riveting story of how the two-wheel wonder pedaled forward the emancipation of women in late-nineteenth-century America and radically redefined the normative conventions of femininity. Aries would be thrilled to hear this. Independence is one of their keywords! And, LOL, it often gets us in trouble, as this old quote shows: “The bicycle is the devil’s advance agent morally and physically in thousands of instances.” Read more at Maria Popova’s Wheels of Change!

Romance is intense, exciting, swept-off-your-feet fast. Compatibility is necessary for a long lasting union. Ironically, compatibility can be boring pretty quickly. Aries do love challenges, but patience is an entirely different matter. Better to work on the same challenge together than on each other. Tempers and tantrums can happen. Aries get distracted easily as a new opportunity calls to them, person or project. Independent as they are, like Sagittarius and Aquarius, some never marry. You may be heartbroken, disappointed. But how could you help it? They are superb humans, specimens.

Encounters with these Beings are uplifting to many. They save your life. You vow to help others too. They wake you up with new valuable ideas. You take up the cause! They have a brilliant radiance. You didn’t know life could be so vibrant! They don’t think a thing of being physical, it’s natural. Suddenly you realize you could be too and you’re off to the gym, on a walk or racing up a hill! Their instincts are effortlessly phenomenal! Without even thinking, you learn to trust yours. And that smile! They knock you out. They laugh, grin impishly, tease you a bit. Too sweet not to think that over, but not for long. Next thing you know, you are smiling too.

That’s Alpha.

Aries 2019 Celestial Highlights!  

Aries 2019 Timeline!

March

20  Happy Aries & Spring Equinox! Full SuperMoon!
28  Mercury Direct!!

April

5    New Moon
19  AstroLogica Blue Moon, Full Pink Moon
20  Happy Taurus!

Aries Overview of Year to Come!

The unusual 2019 Aries claim to fame is 3 lunar events, TWO Full Moons! The first is the March 20 Spring Equinox Full Worm Moon at 0°, the second is the April 19 AstroLogical Blue Moon, Full Pink Moon at 29° Aries! The beginning and end! What a powerful start for our first sign of the Zodiac! Chiron is really feeling the excitement of being in his new sign Aries! He and Uranus are settling in and getting used to their new signs Aries and Taurus!

Mercury Retrograde turns Direct, forward, March 28! Time then to put the finishing touches on changes that have come up.

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 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.

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 Rx, 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 it’s 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.

Rights fighter Aries, ever sensitive and reactive to changes of content, notices the Dec 2 entry of Jupiter into Capricorn is different this time. There is a more serious note, even an urgency. Education and immigration become more important than ever. 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 exact 34 year 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! 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

Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune are all in their own signs most of the Aries new year! 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 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.

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

St Patrick's Day Good Luck Shamrocks!

May good luck be with you wherever you go and your blessings outnumber the Shamrocks that grow!

OUTER PLANETS WITH ARIES – Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter

Outer planets are the long term movers. Pluto and Neptune move only 3 degrees a year. Uranus at 84 years, and Chiron at 51 years, 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 while others have them late and yours happened while you were young. Your astrologer can help you with your personal timing, understanding and strategies, compare your chart with another’s.

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

In Aries’ year, Pluto is moving from 20 to 24 degrees. Capricorn squares Aries, and Pluto’s MO is just about opposite, so it is challenging for Aries. Pluto is deep and internal, protective, the Underworld. Aries is protective, a rights fighter, but on the ground, here and now, face to face! Pluto will use money, Aries is hands on, spiritedly will use fists if necessary, nevermind the size of the adversary! They have tons of courage and surprise often takes the day! No one expected that! Pluto in Capricorn will advocate psychology, going around to the back door, taking you to jail if things get out of hand. Not that they don’t admire you. They are often police and want to keep the peace and prevent further ado. Aries is there to show them that there are times you just have to take responsibility right now and sort the rest out later. Pluto may work with a lingering situation for years, while an Aries first responder saves your life in a second! We are grateful for both. They want the same things, their methods and timing are just very different. Talk it out and see where you each can do your best together.

NEPTUNE is in his own sign Pisces! He is a water planet in the last water sign, seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors 15 to 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Aries is Neptune’s sign’s neighboring sign! As Neptune ends the zodiac, Aries/Mars begin the next round! Aries is so inspired he wants the Neptune/Pisces dream to come true right now! Neptune can be ponderous or sweep the island clean! Aries is generally slim and trim, spontaneously fast on his feet and pushes to find ways to carry the vision to new places, begin anew! New better tools and ways are thrilling to Neptune as his dreams come true much faster than expected! A champion advocate is now leading the pack!

URANUS, Aquarius’s planet, will cover 0 to 6 Taurus! March 6, 2019 Uranus entered Taurus the final time. Taurus invents simple. For some it either feels too close for comfort, or it’s the most fun you’ve had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! You may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away at all. But somehow it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Divine body electric!

Aries is delighted with the changes afoot, maybe ecological since Taurus rules Mother Earth and Uranus is evolutionary. Aries loves new and is cheering Uranus on! Again, there are different methods. In Taurus, at times, there may be a lay-down-and-wait approach, a lengthy pondering of possibilities. Aries has got the fiery cattle prod out for just such occasions! He dances around, takes you to see what’s been done, and how. Then oddly, Uranus, a lightning quick planet, sits again with the matter, thoroughly making considerations. But his ideas are on the mark, so some are willing to make the wait. Aries is still scouting the surroundings, finding more solutions and certainly won’t always wait. Some things just have to be put in place and tried. It will be a bit of a push/pull. Taurus sometimes lacks self-confidence, just has a slower pace, but is thankful nonetheless for successes. Taurus helps Aries ground, be centered while in action. Taurus is aware of natural cycles, breath and motion. Aries may inspire Taurus, and Taurus gains momentum. But, soon, Aries moves on to the next option, leaving Uranus to maintain and modify to the next generations!

CHIRON went into Aries Feb 18 for 9 years, through 2027. What a fabulous time for Aries! Chiron will heal him, teach him & show him how to teach, maybe get him into a business, maybe bring him a mate! He and Chiron could become partners in a new venture! Chiron in Aries wants you to have a better life right now! Right now is exactly Aries’ pace! Chiron commiserates all too well since he also carries a wound that won’t heal. Many Aries understand because many of them have had an accidental injury of some kind along the way, physical or a broken heart. Considering conditions in the world today, we will likely be grateful for a push from Aries. Aries inspires, get us going into brave new arenas! Chiron looks for ways to help make the new ways acceptable. So many matters need uplifting, many people need a boost in their courage, to know that someone is taking point and they can gather, have hope! Tremendous healing is needed. Most of all how to heal these matters is needed. Aries has refreshing ideas worth standing up for! Please constantly hold our brave healers in the Light.

Chiron will cover the very earliest degrees, 1 to almost 6°, of Aries this year. It will activate any factors you have in or very close to those degrees. See more

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. Chiron has become more Aquarian-like and Uranus has taken on some shamanistic qualities. See more The last 10 years, they connected in Pisces and Aries. Now there will be added flavor as Uranus enters Taurus, first a shift in the foundation, then, in time, a holding steady.

If you have Chiron in those degrees of Aries, 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 and discoveries will be inspiring, especially about how our minds work. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too! Things are a lot different than they were 51 years ago!

SATURN builds from 13 to 29 Capricorn.

Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! 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 27 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through February 20, 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! 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, elderhood. This is generally a strong time for them.

A Saturn Return in Capricorn can be a wee challenge for an Aries! Aries knows that rules were made to be broken, as much as Saturn/Capricorn knows they must be enforced, integrity intact! Aries is a creative inspiring action oriented, try-it-out-and-see sign! Law and order with some leniency makes sense. Otherwise we would all be the same, discoveries never made. Both are needed. Saturn can also make a safe place and time for Aries to explore. However, there are times when spontaneous action just is, just happens. It is the state of zero hindrance that makes the ultimate invention possible! Be wise and also let life happen. Aries doesn’t always think in terms of, oh God, I’m taking a chance. They simply respond to the spark! And there are times it’s a good darn thing they do! Yep. They do make mistakes, but 99 point, they have profound instincts. Plus, they recover quickly!

Saturn in it’s 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!

Saturn/Capricorn are earth to Aries Fire! Earth can put fire out or be the support for it, like for a campfire. Capricorn has things to do in a timely fashion and cherishes Aries workers. Aries is smart, fast, unafraid, and a great leader! Capricorn inspires Aries to get meaningful work done, build lifesaving structures, like after a disaster. Aries points out ways things can be done better. Capricorn makes sure there is a secure foundation. Cap needs to ask, let Aries know the deadlines, then get out of his way. No hovering. Check ins, yes. Aries is tough and Capricorns get more confidence seeing how Aries throw themselves into a job. Put your Aries mates on the new jobs, or they will get bored and find one themselves. Their phenomenal work gets them noticed, often have a rep and are in demand. You might just change roles, let them be the boss, and go with them! And you better keep up!

JUPITER moves from 14 Sagittarius to 22 Capricorn. Jupiter is a big fire planet, entered his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Jupiter stays in Sag the majority of 2019, until moving into Capricorn Dec 2.

Jupiter/Sagittarius never fails 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, double fire, can be fun as all get out for fiery Aries! What one doesn’t think of the other does. Jupiter has the luck, Aries is a daredevil and they get away with it. They take bets and win! Fast cars, fast horses, surfing anywhere! They travel swiftly, move on quickly. They separate happily, meet up later somewhere else or not. Both are independent. If they take up a cause together, Jupiter is holding meetings ana passing out pamphlets or handbills. Mars is out setting up the stage, gathering equipment from the locals. They can speak separately or team speak, or sponsor a speaker to be proud of! Jupiter may want to publish or stop at the University, but Aries is likely off on another venture, biking cross country, at an athletic program at a gym or starting another resort!

Jupiter in Capricorn 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 know your personal limits. 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, and Aries may quickly size up the scene and keep right on going. There may be a temporary alliance if Aries figures he needs a little structure for a while. Keep a loose rein. Share the info, no smothering with expectations ‘for his own good.’ Let Aries find his own way. Aries is a quick learner, maybe faster than you can deliver. Don’t be confused. Keep on giving as you can. If he chooses to be with you, remember he made that choice and it’s an honor. Be yourself and don’t be rushed. Aries may be looking to start a business and sees you have some of that expertise. S/he may be quite grateful for what you share, even when he is fidgety. Take frequent breaks outside if possible. When you are speaking, keep it tight and to the point. When they leave, it’s done. They aren’t always up for lengthy discussions afterwards. Trust that they got what they needed. If it is a personal relationship, that may or may not work for you. Be clear about your own needs. Let go if that’s best. Admire that good looking person from afar and wish them Godspeed. If it works well, how blessed!

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 where they are 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. They may be favorable at one time and not another.

If your Jupiter is in 14 Sag to 22 Capricorn, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. The experience you have will depend 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, or 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, Dear Aries! Blessed be in your new year!

Mercury Mars Retrograde 2018 Drone Landscape Panoramic

New point of view! Drones give a greater elevation, a wider vision, the angle you choose! Your screen of the image is in your hands wherever you are. Mars is in both Capricorn and Aquarius, new scientific machines; Mercury retrograde in Leo shows us dramatic new ways of seeing, communicating!

We think of retrogrades as forward, back, forward. That might be hiking or driving up or down mountain switchbacks, or boating the curves of a river as it meanders to a lower elevation. Now we have drones that have a higher vantage point like flying with the birds, or a lower vantage point exactly level with the top of the mist to see a sunrise that is clouded in below. It can see in front of us to see where we are going, and in an instant turn the drone to see behind us, see what the way home looks like. We can take our picture as we, our child or dog, race into a scene, amazing action shots, or a close up while we are far, far away! Our perspectives are expanding, enhanced, just like what happens with retrogrades, even more sophisticated!

Mars only retrogrades every other year, so this double Retrograde can only occur then and only if Mercury happens to retrograde at the same time!

This intricate double Retrograde process hosts two outer planet sign changes, two major outer planets aspects and precedes Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30! Plus, Oct 30 to November 8 is an exciting TEN days in its own right! Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at its South Node – a rare event! See more!!! Nov 1 Jupiter 28 Scorpio trines Chiron just that once. Nov 6 Uranus retrogrades back into Aries to review and update! Nov 7 is the Scorpio New Moon, and Jupiter 29 Scorpio, last degree, inconjuncts Uranus just once! Some people you travel with, some no longer, new ones pop in! This is it! Choose who you go on with now! Nov 8 Jupiter hop scotches over the line into his own sign Sagittarius! Where are my walking boots, my horse, my travel tickets?

Here’s the Mars & Mercury timetable:

The Mars Cycle Started May 12 in Capricorn!
May 15 New Moon, Uranus into Taurus, Mars into Aquarius
May 25 through Aug 19 Jupiter trines Neptune

June 26 Mars Retrogrades
June 28 Mercury into Leo

July 7    Mercury starts Rx cycle
July 25  Mercury Rxs

Aug 11 New SuperMoon Solar Eclipse same degree as Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!
Aug 12 Mars back into Capricorn
Aug 18 Mercury turns forward/Direct
Aug 19 Jupiter’s last trine Neptune!
Aug 27 Mars turns forward, Direct

Sep 5   Mercury into Virgo
Sep 10 Mars forward into Aquarius!
Sep 12 Jupiter’s last sextile Pluto
Sep 25 Chiron returns to Pisces

Oct 8   Mars finishes his entire 3 part cycle
Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

Mercury will do his 3 part cycle July 7 to Sep 1. Both Mars and Mercury will be retrograde at the same time July 25 to Aug 18! Watch your step! Mercury’s entire Rx cycle is within the Mars Rx! Though in different signs, they are inextricably linked by time.

Whether ascending or descending, 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! Bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. They give us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch. In this case, having two planets dancing, you may be a bit dizzy and overwhelmed! At times one is going forward while the other is going backward, and vice versa!

Every Retrograde is unique, per the signs, the planet, the connections made with other planets during their retrograde cycle. Mars will be doing business 28 Capricorn to 9 Aquarius, establishing innovative community liaisons and Internet presence. He opposes Sun at 4 Leo from 4 Aquarius. Activation, independence, Fatherhood, leadership and freedom will be important. Mercury will cover 11 to 23 degrees in fire sign Leo the sign of the Sun! He lights the arena, speaks from the heart. Teaching and sharing mean a lot. In Leo puts his personal stamp on the way things are said, is specially himself and like no other.

The last Mercury Rx was in fire sign Aries, Mar’s sign. These fire signs can be untouchable, scare you witless, be devastating, purifying, or warm your very Soul. They raise you up when you are down. Starshine lights your nights and the Sun shines on your day.

Mars started his cycle May 12 in Capricorn. Three days later, on the May 15 New Moon, Uranus moved into Taurus for the first time in 84 years! The same day, Mars moved into Aquarius, Uranus’s sign. What a bold are rare start! Uranus will change the Earth herself, Mars will be the champion in her behalf! In Taurus, Uranus’s pace will be slowed somewhat, but not in Earth matters! Mars will stand near, making sure Uranus doesn’t forget to use the electric jazz that is his natural talent!

May 25 through Aug 19 Jupiter makes his last two trines to Neptune, the entire period during the Mars cycle. It isn’t just that this lovely dreams-come-true trine happens, Scorpio to Pisces, but Mars indicates how we activate and do it! While in Capricorn he puts his shoulder to the wheel, builds, pushes, works overtime to set a strong foundation to make a place that properly supports the project. In Aquarius he looks for the most avant-garde possibilities to make it awesome. Electronics are the finest, community backing assures continued progress. Efficient sustainable results save money in the long term.

Mars Rx in Capricorn checks project status frequently, catching snafus or being sure changes are implemented promptly. Better techniques are incorporated as they are discovered. Short term nuisance, long term blessing. Bosses may change mid-course causing some more adjustments needing to be made. Some may lose their jobs yet, in time, find themselves in a better place. Fathers may fret over the right course to take with a child who seems to be in trouble. Get unbiased help from an experienced professional. Aging may require some changes. Allow for a slower recovery, possibly from a recurrence of an old health matter. Ask around to see how others have dealt with it. Do some good things for yourself and take some time out if possible.

Mars Rx in Aquarius may find themselves needing to be more free from all that work, even if it was your choice to do it! Time to be the consultant! Could be some new friends have caused a course change with their offerings, new ideas that have a broader reach are electrifying! Aquarius can be so fast that even Mars is having to hustle to keep up, and that’s rare! It’s gratifying to be first, on the cutting edge again, exultant to be the leader and wake people up right and left! Dashing to and fro, meeting people that support your ideas makes you come back to life. Some of it you may not understand yet, but you sense an outrageous potential! The old gray mare ain’t what she used to be!

During the time when Mars and Mercury are retrograde together, we have the Pluto-on-the-Ecliptic connected Aug 11 New Moon SuperMoon Solar Eclipse. They are turning the soil so to speak! Mars is at 0 AQ leaving square Uranus, about to return to Capricorn. The amazing inspiration of Uranus, AQ’s planet, and being in genius AQ, is right between our eyes, and Capricorn will build it! Mercury is at 14 Leo leaving square Jupiter in Scorpio. Mercury is bold and bright and big minded with a huge smile! He sniffed out some terrific ideas and is taking them home. Seeds in the planter!

How we think about it all is in Mercury’s mind. In Leo there is a wanting to outdo all others, to make it grand and mighty! Mental prowess is formidable, creative and inspirational! We are each called to contribute our best, to make it glow! Our hearts are strong and true. People see our story and want to join in. Changes will be needed to accommodate the new fit. Colors and lighting will change, our presentation, how we dress, our hair, nails even! Some will be a little bossy, and that may be a relief that someone took charges, or we may find ourselves being bullied, or not credited with our contribution. Keep it square. Leos aren’t always quick on their feet adaptable, but they mean well. Come at it a little more gently ~ see how that works. Everybody stay with your exercise programs.

Mars’ second station, standing ‘still’ at the retrograde/direct turning point, focuses intently in Capricorn, steeping in wisdom, the experiences of the ancestors, gathering strength. It starts being within one degree of this turning point on Aug 16th and continues there until Sep 8. Stay in your integrity, respect all beings.

While Mars is finishing the third part of his cycle, Aug 27 to Oct 8, he returns to Aquarius Sep 10. Sep 12, Jupiter makes his last sextile with Pluto. Jupiter is in Scorpio, a mixed combination of a fiery impetuous planet in a you better do it right sign. Jupiter wants to tell all and Scorpio gives a look of warning that you believe. Ok, we’re looking for middle ground here? A sextile is a good aspect of opportunity, but probably not about telling secrets, or you get the scoop and the Pulitzer. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn, holds the power of the law though, so you better be sure before you tell that story – scandal, libel. Even though Mars is not at close degree of the sextile, in Aquarius he is definitely a rabble rouser and may throw both Jupiter and Pluto off balance. They can see the wild card coming. So find a way to get the information out that will prosper for all in a good way. Don’t wait to be caught; turn it to your favor.

Sep 25 Chiron returns to Pisces. He sees the exquisite compassion or the devastating downfall, sometimes of drugs and disability. He returns to a remarkable insight, revelation of Spirit that was clouded before. He has been ahead in Aries and now carries the great sword of fire to cut away the pain of having been harmed, cauterize old psychically bleeding wounds, to release misunderstandings we carried that weighed us down. The healer/teacher has stepped up to the plate, no longer so easy going, letting us be in our stew, but insisting we make changes. Period. Time to get up. He has seen more about how it has been done, is here to take us the next step. On your feet, we can do this.

Much shall have happened as we approach Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30!

Astrology chart of Mercury starting Retrograde July 25, 2018 during Mars Retrograde.

Mars Mercury Double Retrograde 2018 Astrology Chart

Note the T Square – red triangle: Mars, Uranus at point, Sun/North Node. There will be some challenging surprises! See that pretty little bow? It is continuously linked by the green lines across the top of the chart! It is crosslinked by Moon trine Venus/Venus trine Pluto, and Jupiter trine Neptune! Two trines for money and wellbeing, two feminine planets – Moon and Venus, plus learning, dreaming and spirituality and happy magical traveling! Wow!

Aspects during the retrogrades

Mars makes most powerful aspects while he is in Aquarius! May 15, 16 Mars sextiles Chiron, squares Uranus. During his Retrograde, Aug 1 and 12 he squares Uranus then sextiles Chiron. The third set is Sep 10 and 18, sextile Chiron, square Uranus. Mars activates Chiron’s awareness of what needs healing, opens gates to the future and starts further healing with unusual techniques either new to you or new to the planet! On the daily earthly plane, Mars square Uranus in Taurus can be accidents – knives, autos, electronics. Taurus can be trucks, ground to air transportation, earth pockets/volcanic, quakes. Maybe not the time to go spelunking, hang gliding or skydiving. If your 6th sense says don’t, then don’t.

If you are not one to take chances, maybe this will be just the aspect to make you give it a try, but choose leaders with experience and integrity. Sun trine Mars gives prowess and a lucky winner May 25; Jupiter trine Neptune gives protection. The Aug 1 and 12 square Uranus sextile Chiron have more protection because they are followed by Jupiter trine Neptune Aug 19, but still chancy. Mercury trines Mars June 1 and Sep 23. Good use of gear, quick responses.

Three times aspects Mercury makes are square Jupiter in Scorpio, and a yod to Neptune and Pluto. Square Jupiter may disagree on which way to go, which school to select, has the best teachers. Ethics may be important to your life, who to hang out with. Perspective can be crucially important. Exaggeration or lies, misrepresenting, could be costly. We can be expecting too much, be overwhelmed. Privacy and trust or too much truth and way too chatty? Or you win the lottery, and, oh, dear, what shall I do?! LOL Some problems diminish in importance as you get used to the idea and find excellent solutions.

Mercury yod, at the point of a ‘Y’ with Neptune and Pluto is a tough place for playful Mercury in Leo to sit. Leo loves a great performance blazing with remarkable colors and making sounds that heaven can hear! Neptune in Pisces can go with the flow but will eventually retreat to the ashram and meditation, solitude. Woops, did I hurt their feelings? Pluto in Capricorn may join you if he likes your style, but more likely he will be far more proper, conservatively snatching glances at your debauchery, interesting but certainly not really professional. Hmm…yet the employees seem to like it. Well, ok, maybe again next year. In Leo, Mercury can seem like a me, me, me, person and that can be good. Personal experiences can come from the heart and make us all human together, warts and all. If anyone can give a radiant talk on the amazing upcoming project, they can, and have you eating out of their hand! Rewards welcome! The more quiet watchers marvel and are glad to have them. They couldn’t have said it better, at all! Hat’s off!

If either Retrograde connects with your chart, consider these options!

Prepare well. Mars in Capricorn it is tool safety, architectural instruments, maintenance, repairs freezers, earth movers, forklifts. Get mechanical items serviced. Mars in Aquarius especially involves vehicles, bicycles, drones, mechanical and electrical items. In general it means phones, new apps installations and learn to use them with ease, computers, internet.

During the retrograde, unplanned work is likely, project course corrections, rehires and job shifts. Change your appt book right away when there are adjustments, call in advance to make sure they made the change at their end too. Make follow up appts because we know automatically things will require further adjustments. It isn’t done for Mercury until the 3rd phase is done Sep 1, Mars Oct 8!

Take big promises with a grain of salt. Mars in AQ can be super spontaneous and sweep off on an extraordinary new project in seconds! One great link leads to another! If it’s better for all, go for it. In Capricorn, don’t fall for too much pessimism. Keep working but keep watch. During Mercury Rx, give the benefit of the doubt to those Leo wishes. They can pull off amazing things, and with Jupiter trine Neptune the odds are in their favor!

Never be afraid of a retrograde! It stirs the pot. Even as cherished ideas, go up in flames, another door opens. Again, something better has the space to happen. Gather yourself. Grab it with your teeth and shake it for the best to fall out! Don’t let go until it does! Plan to use every precious bit of information that comes your way. The computer goes down? Get a better one, upgrade, get one better suited to your needs. A vacation falls through? Choose a better time and something more potent than your previous choice. Really look at it. You and circumstances have changed since you made that first plan. The dog eats your script? What you write next is surprisingly so much better! You were devastated at first, but now actually glad that happened! Your life will get better. Give it reasonable time and be proactive. The outcome depends partly on YOU! Be there!

After the Retrograde! In the third phase, the direct part when the retrograde is finishing, tidy up. Take a look at the devastation and debris. You did it! How much of that did you need anyway? Reorganize. Keep it light. Cherish what you are left with, polish it up, integrate it well. Make further plans with what goes well with you. Follow up on the best ideas. Get connected with some good people going your way, ones who can keep pace with you! Grab one or two or three experienced consultants in your field and hear them all out. Merge some of your and their ideas and plans. Not all of their particular options may be ones you use now, maybe later, but they get you thinking and started! Yes! It’s likely to turn out much better than you expected! Collaboration makes things multiply! Each of you can promote the main project from your special vantage points!

Keep your chin up, eyes open, listening ears on and get to it!

Full Strawberry Moon! Building a Better World! 

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

Cancer 2018 Full Strawberry Moon

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cancer New Moon 2018 Sunset Crater Volcano

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cancers Feed the Tribe, Body and Soul…

Cancer Chef Anthony Bourdain dining with Prez Obama

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cancer 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Mars July 2018 compared 2020 NASA

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

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

Solstice Facts!

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

Cancer 2018  Timeline!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Outer Planet Transits with Cancer 2018 – July 2019!

Cancer Toddlers playing late day sunny road

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cancer Family Reunion

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

Bless all you Cancer sweeties! We adore you!

Gemini, It’s in Your Hands…

Gemini Prana Breath of Life Hand Touch

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Gemini 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Summer Solstice Rock Platanos Greece

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

Solstice Facts!

Solstice brings extremes of daylight and darkness

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

Each solstice marks a “turning” of the year

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

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

The slowest sunsets come around the solstices

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Outer Planet Transits with Gemini 2018 – June 2019!

Gemini Pansy Flowers! Full Face to Life!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wesak Full Flower Moon!

Venus Grand Water Trine, TWO Fixed Stars are on the Full Moon axis!

Tuesday May 29 at 7:19 AM Pacific, 8 Sagittarius/Gemini 10

Gemini Full Flower Moon 2018

The Buddha’s Birthday, Wesak, celebration date is different in different countries. The United Nations will celebrate it May 29 in 2018! Please join a celebration in your area as fits your beliefs.

The second retrograde Jupiter in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces is followed by our Wesak Full Flower Moon spanning Sagittarius to Gemini. Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet, is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking often go with the territory. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with psychic believer and dreamer Neptune, in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may be taking a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time.

This Full Moon, the trine is especially blessed since Venus is joining them, making a Grand Water Trine! She is coming in at 11 Cancer and will trine Jupiter then Neptune exactly June 1 and 2! Jupiter can be an over honest good-time Charlie, yet in Scorpio sees deeply into our psyches, our deepest hurts and greatest powers. And makes us laugh anyway. Neptune in his own sign Pisces can seem oblivious, oozing along with no particular preference, but when on his feet, the whole Universe is tuned in and turned ON! He makes music beyond words that calls to every molecule in your body! You want to save the World. Venus in Cancer loves oh, so tenderly and is aware of every nuance of feelings. She has the softest touch, cradles you in her arms. She both prepares you to face your demons and comforts you when you have. She assists with memories, the subtle notes that call your Soul. She makes you care again and, after any crying is done, has the business skills to put you on the map! Jupiter has the funding, and Neptune has the Spirit!

The sacred journey is being planned; multilingual Gemini is spreading the Word! The recent Jupiter/Neptune trine, May 25 Pacific, was at 16 degrees, and stays close in degrees until the third and last one Aug 19, 2018 at 15 degrees. Though not in close degrees with the Full Moon, this Full Moon is the first within this span of Jupiter and Neptune traveling together. This is a period of possible dreams come true! Do some serious thinking May 29 through June 2 about what you would like to see happen. Set up the steps to be taken. Let it develop and grow. See more!

Gemini and Sagittarius, mind and meaning! 

Moon in Sagittarius runs away from home – and sometimes the grass really is greener! Already the little explorer instinctively knows there is much to observe, learned, find the greater meaning of. Philosophy and ethics are important. There is confidence and with big natural smiles they attract the help they need and travel in safety spinning memorably tall tales along the way. A broad perspective brings wisdom and justice. They are great athletes and winning gamblers! Their mothers may read to them from the very beginning, homeschooling no surprise.

Sun in Gemini is a strong quick thinker, speaks the words of the heart! Geminis cheer us to expand our thinking. Fathers have a special way of taking our hand, walking us along, listening to us. There is a radar for sincerity, knows when we are afraid, or in pain. In his huge capacity of experience, he is there when we go awry and lose our center amongst the amazing array of information we encounter. He shares his facts and covers the bases, is multifaceted, sometimes ambidextrous. There are so many possibilities! He is highly aware how important touch is, holds us close, yet encourages us to think for ourselves, shine our own light as we venture forth.

In the immediate background, the North Node and Saturn are at 7 degrees, the Full Moon just past them at 8 degrees. The North Node in Leo sextiles the Gemini Sun, trines the Moon. Both of those are classically positive aspects, opportunities for the Sun as the Node in the Sun’s sign Leo lights the way with courage and even bigger thinking! Makes you feel good to be your most glorious self! The Node invites the Sagittarius Moon to step forward as a coach with leadership stories based on personal experience. Nothing like real stories to inspire us to take that chance. If we fail at first, we know we can try again with a slightly different tilt! Gemini knows there are endless options; evolution is happening every moment!

Mercury is at 29 Taurus, the last degree, about to go 0 Gemini! All last degree points have a sense of maturity, finality, ending, hopefulness that the foundation is strong, ready for the next step of the journey. 29 Taurus is a little more serious being at the degree of the Pleiades, the Weeping Sisters. Also it rules the throat and strangling and hanging are not so good an ending. So be clear about how your life is heading. If you start feeling suffocated, at the end of your rope, time to realign! Prepare for stable background work that will hold the promise of your future.

Gemini, the next sign, is the Sun’s sign this Full Moon, and Mercury is Gemini’s planet, so this Mercurial transition is important. Mercury is semisextile the wild card Uranus, then sextile Chiron. Mercury and Uranus both have to do with communications. Mercury is your personal thinking. Uranus is collective thinking – humanity, the Internet! Uranus is now in Taurus, so we think of Gaia, the environment of our bodies and Souls. It helps to keep us grounded as evolution is speeded up. Chiron offers opportunities to access healing informations, teaching options, business connections, meeting fast thinkers like himself! Stand up with both eyes open! As one teacher said, Where your focus goesyour energy flows. Another way of thinking of this is Mind over Matter!

TWO Fixed Stars are on the Full Moon axis! One person summarizes, ‘The eastern royal star Aldebaran, the star of illumination, is directly across the zodiac from Antares, the star of anger, pride and revenge. This is the only exact opposition of two major stars!’ They are also two of the four Archangel stars, the four Royal Stars of Persia, the Four Guardians of Heaven. Ferocity required! In about 4 hours the Moon will be opposite Aldebaran at 9 Gemini 47 and in less than 2 days, the Sun will conjunct Aldebaran, the most famous of the four Archangel stars, represents St Michael! Aldebaran is God’s military commander and opposite his nemesis Antares at 9 Sagittarius 46! Antares is the Watcher of the West, guardian of the doors to the underworld at the heart of the Scorpion constellation. Shiver.

Robson says Aldebaran, in the constellation Taurus, 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. Researcher Ebertin says Catastrophe by weather conditions, floods, shipwrecks. Acknowledged and leading position, but will make enemies through whom danger will threaten. Extraordinary energy. Bernadette Brady says you will face moral dilemmas that challenge your integrity. Avoid temptation to compromise.

Antares is said to make people tough, belligerent and pugnacious. This is an important star for military personnel and is said to convey mental alertness, strategic ability and courage and to make dare-devils, especially if tied up with the MC, Ascendant, Sun or Jupiter. According to tradition, Antares is of violent character and is credited with being significant for a violent death, either in battle or by process of law. On the other hand, danger may come about by fire, weapons or machinery. Antares is also said to be unfortunate for the eyes, if in conjunction with the Ascendant, Moon or Sun and this has proven to be the case by later researchers. Clearly, this is a ‘be careful’ star.

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

Blessed be, you and the Buddha. May your MoonLight be flowerful!

NEW MOON – Two T Squares, Uranus and Chiron!

Wednesday June 13 at 12:43 PM Pacific, 22 Gemini 44

Gemini New Moon A Dark Sky studded with Stars Dark Purple Roses and Dewdrops

A dark New Moon sky studded with stars is similar to these dark purple Roses with galaxies of dewdrops.

This will make the last of 6 lunar events in a row that we have had planets at 29 degrees, the last degree of their signs. Both in Aries it was Chiron at 29 degrees Pisces. In Taurus it was Uranus at 29 Aries, then Mars 29 Capricorn. The May 29 Gemini Full Moon it was Mercury at 29 Taurus, and now it’s Venus at 29 Cancer! Finishings it has been, on the brink of new beginnings. In order, Chiron, Uranus, Mars, Mercury, Venus.

Venus at 29 Cancer sums up Mother’s love, our role as a child. She started out as but a baby girl herself. Her own Mother did as best she could. Maybe she was unable and let others do what they could. Maybe she came from a long line of dedicated capable loving Mothers who passed on that heritage and that baby girl became a wonderful Mother too. Zodiacally our charts may be easy with our Mums, partially or wholly challenging, or we were just born to do destiny on our own, Mum supplying the birth. Venus in Cancer can give a child a profound love and admiration for our Mum, or a knowing that we must love ourselves as we are even if Mum doesn’t. Venus in Cancer can give an abiding love for femininity, women, the Matriarchy, our home and community, culinary prowess, instinctual nurturing, Mother Moon! This is an important primordial placement for self-esteem, for a good quality of life.

Furthermore, Venus links to both T Square points! She squares Uranus, trines Chiron! See more below…

Moon and Sun are at 22 Gemini 44! Love those double numbers! So apropos for Gemini, sign of the Twins! I’m always in awe of this Moon/Sun merger! Bright as Sun is, Moon is there to shelter and nurture! Sun reminds her to take some time for herself and brightens her day! Moon in Gemini is careful with her words, has a lot she has collected to say. Mercury is in Moon’s sign Cancer, as Moon is in Mercury’s sign Gemini, mutual reception. Touching family memories are shared, more images taken for the album. Mercury remembers the dates and details, who was where, when and why, family lineage, making Moon quite happy to have the whole story. Venus in Cancer too, remembers sweet anecdotes of gatherings and who brought that delicious food and recipe! Sun is gallant and heroic with his words. He inspires all with his dramatic experiences and reenactments. The whole combination is heartfelt.

Moon and Sun recently inconjuncted Pluto in Capricorn, but make no close upcoming aspects to any planet. Darker factors of the past may need a warm gathering to heal difficulties that have lingered. And it’s good to get clear that was then, this is now. Don’t let emotional or psychic hangovers tarnish the goodness we have now. We have outgrown many old fears and built a more sturdy mindfulness now. If it isn’t much better now, see to it.

Two T Squares!

A T Square has a baseline of two or more planets opposite each other with another planet or planets equidistantly placed between them at approximately 90 degrees, the midpoint. It’s the very function of equidistance that gives additional potency! The Midpoint factor receives equally, no value difference. So the two powers merge without prejudice – neither submerged nor overshadowed by the other. The Magi astrologers say the midpoint is a fusion or melding together of the baseline planets’ symbolisms. If there is a planet(s) at the midpoint that energy activates the point planet and the point planet radiates to the baseline planets! Potency! Two expert sources are Reinhold Ebertin, German midpoint master – dead on interpretations, and the Magi Society astrologers. Learn more about midpoints at Cafe Astrology.

Any two planet(s) make two midpoints, one on either side of their baseline. There can be a planet there or not. Since they can be on either side of the baseline, there is a completely different sequence of signs. For example, our fixed T Square has Uranus in Taurus at its T point, making the sign sequence Aquarius, Taurus, Leo. If instead the T point planet(s) was in Scorpio, the sign sequence would be Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, a very different tone! And though there happens to be no planet there, that midpoint in Scorpio is still a sensitive point. One of your Scorpio planets might fill that spot.

The midpoint planet(s) can act as sender of the collective energy of the base group. It can act as a probe, the rep of the base group. It can seek fertile territory, as a ‘dowser,’ seek information sources to receive from, channel home to the people, act as a collector. It probably can do both simultaneously. As soon as information is received, it changes the substance of the search! The search instantly has greater capacity, becomes new and scans wider and further! It’s a living process.

In everyday traditional astrology oppositions have their maximum differences, the widest possibilities of reach. Squares break things down, break up, and break through. The mid planet(s), the planet(s) at the T point, interrupt the status quo the two opposite points may have settled at. There can be a surge of energy as we let go! Grabbing new ground makes sense. Jam the wedge in and keep the gates open. Take a good look and see if you want to go there, where you want to go. Get up and ride!

One T is the predominantly fixed T Square spanning the Nodes Aquarius to Leo, Venus at 29 Cancer at the North Node, Mars at the South Node in Aquarius, Uranus in Taurus at the point. Fixed signs are meant to anchor and stabilize important factors in our lives. They often stand true as ones we can depend on when life is chaotic.

Venus makes the link that makes the T Square. She is at 29 Cancer, the powerful last degree of the sign! Cancer is a cardinal sign, all the rest of the factors in the T are in fixed signs Aquarius, Taurus and Leo. Cardinal signs get things started and keep them moving! Fixed signs stabilize the achievement. Venus enters Leo 2 hours after the New Moon; Leo holds the Light forever in his heart! In Leo she makes the exact square to Uranus the day after the New Moon.

Venus in Cancer loves her nest, her family’s culture, tradition, homespun art. She stands for women, children, the young, the feminine. Uranus needs freedom, is avant garde, the Awakener before his time, concerned for humanity at large, planetary matters. His friends and associates, international gatherings are where his attention is. The internet is his tool of choice. In Taurus he’s a little more calm about it, and has some unexpected patience, but change there will be. The homestead, the animals, food sources, clothing – elemental commodities, our bodies. The definition of Beauty will change. We will be attracted for different reasons than before and want different things. As an ally, Venus will lend her Grace, give the personal caring human touch when Uranus doesn’t seem to care. Uranus likely sees how important her presence is, even more than she does, though he may not say so because so much is on his mind. Be good if he would let us know where we stand with each other… He’s so erratic, Venus may find it hard to find a moment to give praise for his works. Take some time for personal exchanges. Things will go better for it.

The North/South Node on the Leo/Aquarius axis is the baseline of the T. They are always retrograde, so they are going back to meet Venus, and they too will be squaring Uranus shortly. Venus will be at the North Node, the node that we are working to strengthen, to balance with the South Node of the past. The south in Aquarius means we worked with powerful groups of people before. The north, supported by Venus’s blessing, in Leo helps us keep our own counsel, regardless what a group wants us to think. We must stay with our heart, be good in our own personal way, put our stamp on it that others may recognize that special Light! Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, is the planet of unique, so there is harmony. Him in Taurus may seem oh, so, slow, to that S Node in Aquarius, but too fast, getting before our time, has prices to pay too. Take it easy, find your rhythm and right timing.

The North Node and Saturn at 6 degrees are separating from an inconjunct. Saturn in his own sign Capricorn is another calming planet that develops self-discipline. The node considered Saturn’s guidance at its neighboring sign to the S node. Saturn wants to use the past with moderation to achieve the work of the heart at the N node.

Mars in Aquarius was just activating the retrograde South Node and is well past the square with Uranus, the planet of Aquarius! Mars has a bold presence that isn’t usually easily dismissed or quickly forgotten! He moves swiftly to take action that makes change that can’t be undone so the initiation of the process is assured. We may have hoped for such a thing to happen for a long time. It may not start as we anticipated, so you gotta be fast on your feet and leave that delete button alone! Give it a chance, wait to see what happens and what might come of it!

The other is a cardinal T Square formed by baseline planets Mercury in Cancer opposite Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. Chiron takes the point in Aries! If we have Uranian change, we need a healer and teacher to let go the past and open us to future potential! Cardinal signs get us started and keep us in motion. Sometimes they have the ideas that we need the fixed signs to anchor and nurture in place. Other times they sweep in, clear the debris of old thinking, give away the old stuff in the garage, make new arrangements, inspire us to work updated ventures!

Mercury in Cancer questions you gently, but reminds you to take responsibility to self-nurture and kindly speak to help others. You know how Cancers are accused of being crabby, or a little shrill. Well that happens to the best of us at times. We sometimes forget how others are so sensitive even if they seem not to be. Mercury can give instructions about caregiving, mothering, how to listen to your parents and understand they have feelings too. If you ask a Mercury in Cancer what they think they will say, I feel… It’s good to have both logic and sensitivity. Mercury in Cancer may do a lot more listening than you would expect, even be a bit shy.

Oh contraire with Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. He wants to get things done in the least time with the least effort at the least expense. He is Father to Cancer the Mother though she may be the one he bows to! Moms are the cosmic authority no amount of credentials apply to! But who pays the rent?! Saturn gathers us up, goes over the project, makes assignments per our individual skills, checks on our work. He makes sure the client is kept in the loop and secures further work, makes follow ups. And pays our wages. He’s a terrific role model for the youngers, and often makes arrangements for our eldears. (My word.)

Chiron gives us the boot! Aries is no sleeping dog! Woof! Walkies?! You bet! More like at a run. He darts back and forth between Cancer and Capricorn! Cancer is at home but needs to get out and about, inspire the kids! Capricorn, a traditionalist, needs to be shown the new ways quickly, showing how they make a better product, working procedures, more profit. Chiron is good at business and Aries is the leader consultant! Chiron is the healer and teaches how to live well. Old wounds are tended lovingly or lovingly impatiently because he knows we can do it. So we get up and go! And, in Aries, we just plumb leave them behind, even forgot them! Relationships sure take a turn for the better as we are able to put more positive energy in the present than in the sadness of past losses! Aries is the hero, our inspiration, activation, the first! We can do it!

There are three factors linking the two Ts! The Ts are working together!!!

  1. Venus links to both T Square points! She squares Uranus, trines Chiron! Square Uranus she pleads with him to spare the innocent. His job is big, to affect vast numbers of people at once, and sometimes there are casualties. He does what he must. But leader to leader, there are considerations in the grand scheme of things. Kindness can make THE difference. She trines Chiron, but out of sign, Cancer to Aries, water to fire! Aries may make a run for it, being allergic to someone asking him to wait. His kind of responsibility is to be there first, help instantly. She may think he should be more kind, follow up, but he’s wise to know himself and have someone else do that follow up part. She herself is about to go into Leo, the next fire sign, and they will be more easy together, though Aries sometimes thinks Venus is just too soft, and in Leo perhaps a bit lazy, spoiled, selfish. Could be true, but ultimately she finds she can give and is a loving teacher with all kinds of heart! Together they can be magnificent! From a Cancer foodie to an athlete!
  2. As Venus comes forward, the Leo North Node, the N Node always retrograde, is going back to trine Chiron. N Nodes are the new territory, compared to the S Node representing what we did so well we did it bad or overdid it. Seeking a better balance, it is scary to leave an old familiar way. We could make a fool of ourselves, be clumsy, a bit awkward. And what Leo ever wanted that?! Humbling, I say, especially since a few days ago the S Node was with Mars in Aquarius, gleefully up to his old tricks with the gang! But it does feel good to be on his own in Leo, just be himself with no expectations or feeling obliged to the group. Do something, do nothing. Deep breath and be happy.
  3. Mercury, in the cardinal T square, just made a sextile with Uranus, the point of the fixed T Square, tying the two T Squares together. Sextiles connect mixed but favorable elements, in this case earth and water. Earth channels let water flow. Uranus is the most long term factor active in this chart. Both planets have to do with mind signs, Gemini, what’s in our head, and Uranus higher mind of collective humanity, genius and evolution, awakening! Mercury has the information, Uranus has the friends to carry it all over the world! Internet.

Saturn is retrograding back to square Chiron, but Chiron retrogrades before Saturn gets there. They do get close and the sniff factor is there, but no consummation. The worst fears make you take notice, but won’t happen, but they do indicate what could. There may be business and relationship difficulties that need attention. Health troubles are possible. Could be delays. Saturn is working hard in his sign, and Chiron has some new solutions. Give them a listen. Things don’t have to get dire to make excellent changes. See what you can do. You’ve been warned.

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

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

Use these powerful T Squares standing up! Uranus is the ChangeMaker, Chiron is the Healer/Teacher. Sounds perfect!
