New & Full Moon Connections Throughout! Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse is during the Retrograde!

Most significant Mercury Retrograde Leo-Virgo 2017!

Cosmic DNA, evolutionary strands, a weaving of multitude, an unseen pilot lighting the way, time travel…..spiritual intelligence incarnate. We do the same hours every day, yet no two days are alike. Unique waves of consciousness never experienced before. Recognition, Fusion, Alliance, Passage.

This Mercury Retrograde is entirely unique, the holder of the Aug 21 Second Leo New Moon US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE that is at the degree the whole Mercury Retrograde cycle starts at and Mercury goes Direct at! It is also unique by its connections with the New and Full Moons throughout its cycle!

The day after the first LEO New Moon, July 23, the Leo/Virgo Mercury Retrograde cycle starts – not the retrograde, the cycle! The retrograde starts August 12 in Pacific time. Expect that projects begun from July 24 through Aug 12, will not come out exactly as planned. The exciting US Total Solar Eclipse is during the Retrograde part of the cycle – check your reservations in advance – confirm, confirm, confirm – everything! Mercury turns Direct/forward, the day before the Sep 6 Full Corn Moon. Be ready to be flexible, make it better and better through the time of the whole 3 part cycle! It finishes Sep 19, the day of the Virgo New Moon! Clearly, this Mercury Retrograde cycle is linked with the MOON!

Leo the genetic Heart of the LightBearer; Virgo the DNA LightWeaver!

Mercury starts in Leo for only two days, but they are oh, so potent! 
The 3 part Mercury Retrograde cycle starts at 28 Leo and Mercury turns Direct/forward at 28 Leo. It is the root degree and sign of the Retrograde! The contemplation all starts with Leo, the sign of the Heart! Gold is its color! Heroes and athletes are favored. It is Self aware and creative from that central spark of the Light of the Sun! The Lion is with fixed star Regulus the King, why not Queens too?! Regulus was at 29 Leo, but now is early 0 degree Virgo, the Maiden, Healing Priestess! Virgo is the sign of organization and service, and the royals must now make their contribution in high style, truly serve the People! I think of Justin Trudeau whose Ascendant is 3 Virgo. Regulus is one of the four Persian Royal Stars, the Watcher of the South, Summer Solstice, Archangel Raphael, Doctor of Medicine.

Mercury moves along into Virgo, but returns to Leo for a 10 day station (standstill as it turns direction forward), Aug 31 to Sep 9. Mercury is the planet of magical synapses, within oneself and with others! Words get around and we see their many faces. We think, we speak to our core intelligence, the who we are. In Leo there is the search for authenticity, being in the heart, radiant with natural Light. It’s a creative posture, alive with brilliant potential. It calls for a purity of Being that gives the strength from being true. Mercury handshakes its way with a smile that moves the Soul! It passes it on. Irresistible! At the last two degrees of Leo it is mature and sure. Leo being a fixed sign; once it has found its way, it is the Light on the Path, steady and with a remarkable Will to succeed.

Mercury in Virgo, one of its own signs, is clever and succinct, lines up connections so those synapses can fire more frequently. It aligns DNA-like rows of synapses that exchange energy as they travel. It keeps energy points clean so there is clear, quick and accurate exchange. Properly lined up and in peak condition, they can self create and continue. They are strong, flexible. Make turns, reverses to review. They twist to vantage points to look back on how to profit from past experiences and glimpse the future.

The everyday experience might look like how it is situated at the Aug 7 Full Leo/Aquarius Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse:

Mercury is slowing to Retrograde Aug 12, so charming Venus in Cancer, moving faster, is making the sextile to Mercury in Virgo! The practical side of things gets done at home and at work too! Techniques are delightfully woven into our daily fabric. The Art gallery is in order, the finest are selected for cultural beauty, utility and fine craftsmanship. Though it is tempting to do beauty and body work, make clothing choices, it is so close to Mercury Rx, there is a good chance you won’t want the same things very soon. Be sure to get warranties, receipts for refunds. Quickly design your business card and logo. See if it withstands Mercury Rx before you print. Rather than remodel, design on paper and wait. Further options are quite likely to come along! Bookkeeping and services, health matters, getting some rest, streamlining your life, landlord/tenanting may require your attention. Wait until about 5 days after Mercury turns forward/direct to make changes, get engaged. Mercury turns forward Sept 5.

The Aug 12 Retrograde is at 11 Virgo 38, square the fixed star Antares in the constellation Scorpio! Squares mean challenges most any day, but to Antares it may not be an easy challenge. Since Mercury direction changes also mean being in Station, an 8 day period, the energy will be held a good 8 days. Since Antares is at 9 Sagittarius 46+, we’ll extend that time to 5 days before the 12th, 5 days following. Antares is another of the four Persian Royal Stars, the Watcher of the West, autumnal equinox, Archangel Uriel/Oriel, Fire of God. Rob Tillett sums up Antares saying: Spirit of adventure, obstinacy, injuries to eyes, honours, sudden loss, stubborn, suspicious, violent, several marriages. A super simplified interpretation by me would be Virgo wants to work, Sagittarius wants to play and doesn’t show up on time. That’s not a disaster, but you might lose your job and that could become a challenge! If you’re going surfing during work time, take the boss with you!

The Retrograde cycle starts with the Star of the South, Regulus, and ends in connection with the Star of the West, Antares.

Retrograde in Leo, Mercury may change his mind about his opinion about himself. And that’s likely to flip or shift again as there are further developments while Mercury is in station – appears to be standing still in the sky Sep 1 to 8 – then moves forward again and finishes Leo, for the year, Sep 9. The choices of self presentation, personal style – words, posture, looks, colors, lighting – will definitely change. Educational matters, seminar schedules, advertising text, romantic concerns, will change, adjust, maybe improve with adjustments. Consider, research, but wait. Redesign, check fit, availability, but wait. If it passes Virgo specs during the first week Mercury is back in Virgo, go for it! To be on the safe side, get changes clients make approved with signatures and dates, keep receipts, get warranties.

During the Leo station, Mercury Rx conjuncts Mars at 28 Leo 43 on Sep 3. Sep 5 Mercury turns Direct, as Mars moves forward into Virgo. Traveling closely together it takes until Sep 16 for Mercury to make its catchup second conjunction at 7 Virgo 13! In Leo, Mercury interviews the champion, announces a winner, names the leader! He announces the new creation, the exciting new curriculum! Mercury in Virgo puts the energy into action, organizing efforts to achieve the project  A garden may be started, a new health regime makes the news, study efforts back at school are swiftly dispatched. New hires, private contractors, are welcomed gratefully.

The FIVE part Lunar Sequence!

  1. The July 23 New Moon Is the day before the Mercury Rx cycle starts! It will help you see what’s at the bottom of things, the new beginning you would like to aim for. Moon conjunct Sun is a mighty union especially when the Sun is in his own sign Leo! It’s time to stand tall and have the pride of your own sweet Spirit!
  2. Before the August 7 Full Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse, Mercury is close to opposite Neptune in Pisces! Virgo is one of Mercury’s own signs, and Neptune rules the opposite sign Pisces and is in Pisces! It’s almost like a double opposition! Mercury is intrigued by things out of its usual scope, a higher order perhaps. It can be used as a universal model. Things flow, health improves, you arrive at a vantage point of synchronicity that surprises you by its infinitely more favorable links. Logic and intuition work well together. They stay close but with Mercury slowing to retrograde, they don’t become exact, but considerations are stirred. They are within three degrees 10 days, from August 7 to 17. The exact aspect isn’t made, the outcome revealed isn’t revealed, until Sep 19. See more!
  3. Second Leo New Moon, US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE is at 28 Leo 53! This is the degree the entire Mercury Rx cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at!! The Eclipse is during Mercury Rx, Mercury at 8 degrees Virgo during the Eclipse! He trines Dark Moon Lilith at 9 Capricorn. Laser logic and bold feminine success. Tending and building. Cool mind, clear focused passionate power! Use the Eclipse message as your Guide.
  4. The Sep 6 Pisces/Virgo Full Corn Moon is not linked to degrees in the Mercury Rx cycle, but is linked in time, happening the day after Mercury goes Direct, forward! Mercury is in station, appearing to stand still in the sky, at that time. Mercury holds the degree for 8 days, 4 before and 4 after the direction turn. There is a deep intake, a focus, mulling it over, a strengthening, an anchoring is possible. Take care what you hold in your thoughts in these 8 day periods. This time we look at the span of Pisces to Virgo. The Moon is conjunct Neptune in Pisces, his own sign! There are psychic memories of our past life deaths and births, misunderstandings and meanings, denials and dreams. It’s a lot to take in, but the Virgo Sun opposite, uses common sense, and reorders our thinking so we can use the information in a good way to help and heal in current time. Mars newly at 0 Virgo, conjunct fixed star Regulus (see more), wants to move things right along, see to the finer points of things, and may get the job done in record time!
  5. The Sep 19 Virgo New Moon is at 27 Virgo, while Mercury is finishing his cycle at 11 Virgo on the same day! As the Moon cycle finishes and begins anew, Mercury is finishing the Retrograde loop and stepping into new territory! Each has the past as its foundation to move on from. Note your successes, and what needs a bit more work. Give yourself credit. Virgo rules work we perform, services. bookkeeping and budgeting. Health and healing, taking care of pets. Choices based on critical and practical thinking are necessary to accomplish our goals. Again, the degrees are not linked, but the timing is. More wise and experienced, together we celebrate and embark on the next part of our journey!

Here’s the Mercury and Lunar Timing!

July 23 First Leo New Moon at 0 Leo 44
xxxx24 Mercury at 28 degrees Leo Retrograde Cycle starts
xxxx25 Mercury into Virgo, one of its own signs

Aug    7 Full Green Corn Moon at 15 Aquarius/Leo 25
xxxx12 Mercury Retrograde at 11 degrees Virgo
xxxx21 Second Leo New Moon, US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE at 28 Leo 53! This is the degree the entire Mercury Rx cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at!! The Eclipse is during Mercury Rx, Mercury at 8 degrees Virgo during the Eclipse!
xxxx31 Mercury back in Leo only 10 days until Sep 9

Sep    5 Mercury Direct – forward at 28 Leo the Eclipse degree! Mars at 0 Virgo conjunct fixed star Regulus!
xxxxx6 Full Corn Moon 13 Pisces/Virgo 53
xxxxx9 Mercury returns to Virgo, one of its own signs
xxxx19 Virgo New Moon at 27 Virgo 27 + Last day of Mercury Retrograde Cycle, Mercury at 11 Virgo 28!

When Mercury is in Leo, those of you with chart factors in 26 to 29 degrees of fixed signs, Leo/Aquarius, Taurus/Scorpio, will feel the challenge. Those with factors in those same degrees of Fire signs Aries and Sagittarius, will more likely be excited by the changes!

The majority of the Retrograde is 0 to 11 degrees Virgo. Those of you with chart factors in mutable signs, Virgo/Pisces, Gemini/Sagittarius, will be challenged when Mercury is in Virgo. The Earth signs, Taurus and Capricorn will likely find it a smoother ride.

Wishing you all the very best. By my thinking, this Mercury Retrograde is significant! Make it so.

PART 1, Your 2011 Astrology Highlights!

Sign Changes, Jupiter Transits, Stelliums – Planets in the Same Sign, 56 day Super Aries Stellium, Bowls!

Some of these you will definitely want to mark on your calendar, be aware of, plan ahead for! So, with your appointment book/calendar in hand….

Early Year Sign Changes – Jan 22 to Apr 4 we have five!
This will be a time of changing needs, no final decisions, be flexible, seek what is better, be proactive!

Jupiter changes signs every year, but this year’s Aries into Taurus sweep happens in a breathtaking 4 months, 13 days, Jan 22 to June 4!
Feb 8 Chiron enters Pisces
Mar 11 Uranus enters Aries joining Jupiter
Apr 4 Neptune enters its own sign PISCES (only once every 168 years, and we get to experience it!), Aug 4 it retrogrades back into Aquarius

Transits to Transits, Jupiter’s Blessings!
Jupiter is the only planet that makes aspects to the outer planets in 2011 and makes two more, to finish its sweep, Valentine’s Day and Mar 12 of 2012! Quite a run, and a great lead into 2012! Jupiter’s Luck is keenly sought! Time for marriage and business charts! Call me to help you pick the best, specific for YOU!

        Date          Aspect          Occurrence
+/-    Jan 4   Conjunct Uranus    3rd
—    Feb 25   Square Pluto           3rd
—    Mar 28   Opposite Saturn     3rd
+    June 8   Sextile Neptune    Once
+     July 2   Sextile Chiron          1st
++   July 7   Trine Pluto               1st
++  Oct 28   Trine Pluto              2nd
+     Dec 6   Sextile Chiron         2nd

Stelliums, Planets in the Same Sign (I’m including Chiron)
There are many 4 planet groups in 2011, in Capricorn, Aquarius, Taurus, and Sagittarius, but none to compare with the phenomenal ARIES Stellium: 4 to 6 planets in ARIES from Mar 21 to May 15! 56 Days! From April 1 to May 11, there are continuously 5 and 6! That’s half of our 10/11 planets! Think of the charts of children born at that time!

The long duration of this stellium is what makes it so phenomenal! The anchor planets are the slow mover Uranus and faster Jupiter, with Mars on its 2 year cycle, and the annual planets in turn, Sun, Mercury, Venus, and the Moon twice, at the beginning and end! Part of what keeps it going is that Mercury Retrogrades Mar 30 to Apr 23, remaining in Aries longer than would usually be!

Aries is THE highly spirited fire sign, on-the-spot intuition, split second reaction times! Their courage and fearlessness are totally inspiring, leadership is something they do without thinking, it’s normal. They love new ventures, put their whole heart into it, and never look back. If one thing doesn’t work, no crying and moaning, nary an apology, next! They do put their partners on pedestals, and being only human, oops, there are falls from grace. Sigh. But, hey, onward, right?! Pick yourself up and off you go! There is a simpleness of intent, childlike exuberance, sometimes naïve, but well intended. Help them if you can keep up.

Aries Super Stellium High Points!
April 1, Mars, the planet of Aries, enters Aries, making that 5 planets in Aries!
April 2, the Moon joins, making that now 6 planets in Aries!
The Aries NEW MOON is April 3, just as powerful as it can be!
April 4 the Moon enters Taurus, we’re back to 5 planets in Aries.
April 20/21, the Sun enters Taurus as Venus enters Aries, and the amazing 5 planet Aries stellium continues!
April 29 the Moon joins making it SIX, again!!!!
May1 Moon enters Taurus, so we are back to 5
May 11 Mars enters Taurus and we are back to 4!

Feb 3-4     SIX planet Aquarian New Moon stellium, Feb 3 starts the Chinese Year of the Rabbit!
Mar 3-5     SIX planet Pisces New Moon stellium
Sep 26-28     5 planet Libra, New Moon stellium

Bowls! Scoop and gather, hold, let settle, pour the blessings….

Capricorn Bowl, 3rd of Four: Dec 28 2010 to Jan 10, 2011 our planets are arcing Libra to Pisces, one side of the zodiac.
Aquarian Bowl, last of the series: Jan 25 to Feb 6, our planets are in a bowl pattern from Libra to Aries, with a SIX planet Aquarian stellium Feb 3-4! Feb 3-8 we have 5 planets in Aquarius until Chiron enters Pisces on the Feb 8th!

PART 2, Your 2011 Astrology Highlights! 

Retrogrades, Chiron’s New Pattern, Six Eclipses, Occultations, Planetary Extremes, Super Moons, Moon Void of Course, Chinese Year of the Rabbit!

Some of these you will definitely want to mark on your calendar, be aware of, plan ahead for! So, with your appointment book/calendar in hand….

Retrogrades Few  The usual outer planet retrogrades, no Mars or Venus retrogrades, Mercury 3 times as usual – Mar 30 to April 23 in Aries, Aug 2 to 26 in Leo/Virgo, and Nov 23 to Dec 13 in Sagittarius.

Chiron’s new pattern, retrograde degrees start overlapping each other. That means sometimes a planet in your chart may be activated 5 times rather than only the 3 times as in the past. The only other planets that do this are Pluto and Neptune. So their activations can, at times, be dense, and intense, repetitive, taking 3 years – the year before they are exact and the 2 years they are exact. If they activate planets in very close degrees, more than one planet at a time, in your chart, it can be intense indeed, complicated, at those times. If they activate a string of planets in your chart one after another, issues can cascade, one to the next, for years and years. You live through things longer than you would ever have thought possible. These are those lawsuits that go on and on, health matters that frazzle your Spirit, children that don’t get over things and have trouble growing up, couples that fight for years never-ending. If you are in such a sequence, get support, see your part in things, get informed, take especially good care of yourself. Call me for a reading, I’ll check for you.

SIX Eclipses in a year happens every 4.5 years or so, and we have a Unique Dark Moon!  Four of the six 2011 eclipses are Metonic returns of the eclipses of 1992, repeating on the same dates and degrees. The other two repeat the date and degrees of the New Moons! While many eclipses repeat at 19-year intervals, some do not. Eclipse Frequency

Jan 4 Solar Eclipse, New Moon 13 Capricorn, same day as Jupiter conjunct Uranus in Pisces!
June 1 Solar Eclipse, New Moon 11 Gemini
   Jupiter enters Taurus, sextiles Neptune between the 6.1 and 6.15 eclipses, all of them preceding Summer Solstice!
June 15 TOTAL Lunar Eclipse, Full Moon 24 Sagittarius
July 1 Solar Eclipse New Moon 9 Cancer
July Two New Moons, July 1 & July 30! Call the second New Moon of July what you will! Dark Moon, Black Moon, Secret Moon, Spinner’s Moon, Finder’s Moon. The second one of the month is considered especially potent for magical practice.
Two eclipses during Mercury Retrograde! 
      Nov 23 Mercury Rx
      Nov 24 Solar Eclipse, New Moon 2 Sagittarius, on ThanksGiving Day!

      Dec 6 Jupiter sextile Chiron 2nd time
      Dec 10 TOTAL Lunar Eclipse, Full Moon 18 Gemini
      Dec 13 Mercury Direct

Occultations are Eclipses, just not Moon/Sun Combos! They occur when planets are lined up both horizontally and vertically, exactly in conjunction in the line of sight! Some years they happen again and again, often to the same planet. 2011 there are only 3, all formed by the Moon to different planets – 6.30 Venus, 7.27 Mars, 10.27 Mercury.

Planetary Extremes, March Lineup!
Jan 3 Perihelion, Earth closest Sun; July 4 Aphelion Earth farthest from Sun.
Mar 9 Mars Perihelion, every 2 years
Mar 16  Mercury Perihelion, annual
Mar 17 Jupiter Perihelion, every 12 years!  This is the big one that is super charging 2011, the Aries Stellium!  Click here for more!
Mar 19 closest Perigee, Moon to earth; Apr 2 is the furthest Apogee, Moon’s distance from Earth. Quakes, volcanic eruptions, major storms, high tides are often at perigees. Apogees can be calm to the point of malaise.

6 Super Moons, one Extreme, 100% +

Feb 18, 2011 | 00.36 AM   |  Full Moon | 29 Leo
Mar 19, 2011 | 11.10 PM  | Full Moon | 28 Virgo  | Extreme, closest Perigee, to Earth. Jupiter perihelion March 17.
Apr 17, 2011  |   7.44 PM  |  Full Moon | 27 Libra
Sep 27, 2011 |   4.09 AM  | New Moon | 04 Libra
Oct 26, 2011  | 12.56 PM  | New Moon | 03 Scorpio
Nov 24, 2011  |  10.10 PM | New Moon | 02 Sagittarius | Partial Eclipse, ThanksGiving Day

Moon Void of Course April 4 to Aug 4, as Neptune enters Pisces, no outer planets, that’s Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn, and Jupiter, will be in late degrees, all are in new signs! That means the Moon will often have long Void of Course times when no planets are in late degrees of any of the signs. From the time a planet makes its last major aspect, a conjunction, sextile, square, trine or opposition, until it enters a new sign, is the time it is Void of Course, VC. The general interpretation is nothing will come of anything started during VC time. You go shopping for an item that is regular stock, and they are out of it that day! Sometimes it’s a good thing nothing comes of your effort, better left unsaid, so to speak, or, oops, thank God you didn’t do that! But not a preferred time for the interview for the job you really want. Yet, another interpretation is there is nothing to stop the matter, it’s a done deal. If the Moon’s last aspect was classically favorable, I would lean toward declaring a positive outcome for action taken. Generally, I would postpone if possible.

Feb 3 starts the Chinese Year of the Rabbit!
