Cancer Solar Eclipse New Moon!

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

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

Solar Eclipse 8.21.17 Phases Jasman Mander Oregon

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently part of!

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

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

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

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

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

Capricorn-Cancer Lunar Triple Eclipse Full Buck Moon! 

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

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

Capricorn Cancer Lunar Eclipse Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway Heiko Junge

Lunar Eclipse at Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway by Heiko Junge

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

10  Sun trine Neptune – putting our heart with our dream

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

About Retrogrades!  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Gemini New Moon!

Gemini speaks the Word, Neptune Dreams are Key!

Gemini 2019 New Moon Milky Way White Desert Egypt Nader El Assy

The magnificent Milky Way springing out of the Sahara White Desert in Gemini country Egypt by Nader El Assy

One of Gemini’s talents is shifting, making waves in the windy-day grass, wavelets in the sands of time. They are all different, many, and all connected, all one. Our New Moon has three planets in Gemini including Mercury, the planet of Gemini! Sun puts his heart Light into the transcendence from one level to the next. Moon stands by always ready for changes. She guides us through each sign into the next encounter. Mercury spins the web so all are held safely. He calls, waits, we catch up and the multitude moves forward again. Each idea is considered. Though it seems random, no one is here by chance. All are contributors. Though Mercury is in Gemini, he stands alone by degrees, free to spread the Word as he wishes. It may be a precursor, not have particular immediate results. It will float until the time is right. 

The New Moon squares Neptune! This is important because they and this entire New Moon system are bringing us up to and supporting the coming Jupiter square Neptune and Saturn sextile Neptune June 16 and 18. These aspects straddle the Full Strawberry Moon! Moon has the authority of the Mother. In Gemini she nurtures with the mind, words, giving information to make us whole. Her touch calms the emotions. She brings us back to present though there are memories of a sometimes lost child. Neptune is anything but logical, but just the same, being psychic, he ‘understands’ anyway. Even more, he understands the intent, need, behind the words or information delivered. Neptune carries so much content it makes a Gemini look pale! His information is not mere data, but how it is seated within the collective Consciousness. Sometimes he is overwhelmed, muddled, worried for all, becomes a victim of his own vast knowing. Mercury comes in, peppy and innocent, and Neptune is swept clean in a quick swish! Not that anything really ever went away, it’s just that Mercury comes in with such a different way, Neptune is broadsided, reawakened, brought up to date, and set to simmer! Mercury, smart as he is, is clueless, bids Neptune adieu and off he goes! Next!

So Neptune has been gifted with a mental smorgasbord, is intrigued, and re-sorts the parameters, discovers delightful new avenues of seeing. It’s all just in time for Jupiter’s greater Truth seeking push. Jupiter has the big ideas, the plans for Neptune’s dreams! Neptune is entranced, becomes a bit unsure of himself in this new territory. All the better for creatively opening new doors! Jupiter has confidence and is right there when Neptune wavers. Together they get to the next portion of the journey.

Saturn gives Neptune a stamp of approval, offers to build now, extend beyond any time lapse. Saturn consults with Jupiter and Neptune, sees Jupiter’s brilliant ideas, Neptune’s visions, helps them come to terms with what’s really possible right now. He betters some of what they hoped for because he is so good at seeing the shortcuts that work. More is done with less in less time. Saturn knows there are some rules and protection needed and negotiates terms the people will need so the project is sustained. 

The New Moon semi sextiled Mars! He’s in Cancer, either grumpy with women and children, who has time for their sniveling, or he is their #1 Champion, faithfully defending them against all odds! What a hero! He is also wanting especially to do Moon’s wishes since he is in her sign. Cancer is not just Mother and women, but the public at large, business, cycles, commodities. He’s pushing to get these projects done so all can benefit. We’ve waited too long already.

Venus, lingering in her sign Taurus, trined Saturn and Pluto. She has shown them the value of Earth, nature, sustainability and made a good case. She is holding stability while Gemini is off sniffing all the flowers!


Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently part of!

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

Saturn is retrograde about to be at 18 Capricorn again, the very degree of the Pluto/Ecliptic event! Neptune is now at 18 Pisces sextile that degree. Jupiter is retrograde and by the Full Moon June 17, will be back at that degree, 18 Sagittarius! We will be reviewing, strengthening our techniques, be reminded of the potency of Earth’s situation. Business, beliefs, posterity will all be on our minds. Jupiter is readying our plans and preparations. Jupiter keeps the perspective of the big picture in mind and our intentions for the future guide our every choice. Any learning and teaching are needed now to be in place for when we or others are ready for the next step. Be flexible and keep the faith! 

Pluto is now at 22 Capricorn, THE degree Saturn, potently in his own sign, will catch up with Pluto at on Jan 12, 2020! Pluto will be at 23 when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential election because they are precisely astrologically linked! Again, some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

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

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

In Gemini, they assess our state of mind, the state of the planet. They look at communication mediums, people who have the ear of the public, which are priority realms needing uplifting the most, those that have been neglected, abandoned. As with them, take a look at your skills, where to put your sacred intention next, what you can do that will make a big enough difference. It you can’t do it right now, prepare, have a timeline that you check on frequently to remind you why you are doing this. If you are alone, sign up with skilled leaders so you can learn from them. Take some class action into your own hands!  

New Moons are a good time to make assessments, put things into perspective. Keep these things in mind as you face challenges. The outcome may surprise everyone! In Gemini, we are aware of so many links in our own minds and those between us. Communications are vital to life. As we speak, our breath of life carries the Word. As we do our life work we become models for others to follow.

Sharing is caring. Keep it rolling!

Sagittarius-Gemini Full Strawberry Moon! 

Monday June 17 at 1:31 AM Pacific 25 Sagittarius/Gemini 53 

Three outer planets at 18° now! Mercury & Mars engaged with Saturn and Pluto!

Gemini 2019 Full Strawberry Moon Parthenon Acropolis, Athens Greece

Gemini is multiplicity, pillars and posts, duality, doubles, siblings, especially twins! The Parthenon at the Acropolis, Athens Greece.

The Gemini Sun and Sagittarius Moon span the plane of consciousness that considers what’s on your mind – words to ethics. Gemini has gathered data fresh at its fingertips; Sagittarius sorts out what it means and where its going. It ranges from siblings and neighbors to the philosophers of the world. Every bit is part of the collective and plays a part of the whole. It is all in motion, breathing, shifting, in discovery at all times. Learning and teaching are the living tools of its expression. Learning how to learn, how to teach become prime importance. Those techniques are equally in evolution. It’s all a verb, not a destination!

Those words, it’s not what you say but how you say it. Gemini Sun needs to be mindful of how much to deliver at a time, and to be  potently to the point. Scatter shots do work at the right times. They cover the territory and maybe who we are talking to needs the whole story, didn’t realize the breadth of the subject! Sometimes as we let the conversation take its natural course, we relax and take it in at a more subconscious level, realize the true deeper intent of the exchange. At times a summary helps put it all in perspective. Other times a summary may minimize the breadth, scope of wholeness. We realize there is no summary, instead a broad blanket of standalone matters whose only commonality is each are happening at the same time. The summary becomes ‘there are several important matters right now.’ 

Moon in Sagittarius is concerned with housing locations, education for the kids, how to plan for the future in the current world of earth changes. For many there is a dismaying realization just how conservative, even rigid, definitely resistant, sometimes violent, powerful, some of us are. When the children of the world have to take point, that speaks. They have been shot at, abused, money put above their healthy futures. Sagittarius is optimistic, has abiding faith, is the TruthSeeker. We need them now. They need to drop any vestiges of arrogance, judgement, contempt. Everyone has come from somewhere. They need to show us differences, possibilities, give us their incredible perspective. Stand true with a lot of heart. Moon intends to nurture, and we need it. 

THREE OUTER PLANETS ARE AT 18° NOW! They are all at the degree of the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto/Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn! Jupiter starts at 18 Sag. Saturn is next at 18 Cap. Neptune finishes in the last sign, Pisces. ALL ARE IN THEIR OWN SIGNS! Jupiter is the traveler, teacher. How we travel these times is crucial. It’s not just where we go, but how we be with the people as we go. Saturn takes a practical look at reality. Some laws need to be broken, updated, made to protect vital progress. Responsibility is key for each citizen, even the children today. Neptune is the visionary, plays to our Spirits and Soul. Neptune is psychic, feels the immensity we are facing, senses how each one of us can stand for what we believe in, in a good way. Jupiter and Neptune are in a challenge aspect. Jupiter’s temptation is self righteousness; Neptune reminds him we are all different in so many ways, yet want many of the basic same things. Balance is key. Sometimes an outraged shouter gets people to finally listen. Neptune comes in to soothe and commune with the ones with busted beliefs! He assures them they can continue, they will make it through the rubble and create new times together.

Jupiter and Saturn are both retrograde. Jupiter just squared Neptune YESTERDAY June 16! Saturn sextiles Neptune TOMORROW June 18. They are intensified by this Gemini/Sagittarius Full Strawberry Moon right between them June 17! These aspects are especially important because they happen while Neptune is at 18 Pisces, sextile the Pluto/Ecliptic point of Oct 30 2018 at 18 Capricorn! The whole sequence started Oct 30, 2018 with Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! The Jupiter/Saturn pair are preparing us for the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse at 18 Scorpio and its sister aspect Nov 19, Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! Those in turn prepare us for the Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and Mar 21 The Crown! April 4, 2020 starts a three time Jupiter conjunct Pluto sequence bringing healing and planning. Saturn conjunct Pluto is precisely linked to the powerful Jupiter/Pluto aspect, same degree and sign, that is most close to the 2020 Presidential Elections. All of these are linked to and will have strong effect on the Nov 3 2020 presidential elections.

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

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

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

Mars and Mercury were and are activating Saturn and Pluto!

Mars in Cancer isn’t fooling around. He just faced across to Saturn. Cancer is always a ‘presence’ with Saturn, in Capricorn, because Cancer is Capricorn’s opposite sign. Opposition is awareness, but is also the safest long distance apart in a chart. If Saturn gets annoyed he can be heavy handed. Mars can feel safer to call him out, but in Cancer Mars is more likely to offer support, even though a challenge is made. Cancer is generally conservative too, so Saturn feels safer to consider the matter. In this case, housing and children are at the top of the list. 

Now and next, Mars opposes Pluto, also in Capricorn. Formidable and not so easy as Saturn/Cap. Pluto can be tough to read, so thank goodness for Cancer’s perception and the skills of dealing with children who think they can’t be seen, LOL! Mars better be somewhat careful though. Not good to provoke the Ninja Master. Then, Mars loves a challenge and rarely bypasses such a chance. If he succeeds, he could have the Master’s approval, even if it is begrudging. They will know of each others’ presence, parry, whether emotionally or actual contact. It could be athletic or financial competition. The aspect is exact June 19, 8:21 PM Pacific, the day after Saturn sextiles Neptune. If Mars and Pluto work in tandem on opposite sides, contributing their efforts for a greater cause, the results could be outstanding. Mars spearheads a business that funds the finances needed to seek a cure for a longstanding disease. It could be mental, an addiction, infectious, a tumor. Mars could do some special awareness events that go viral that Pluto decides to contribute major funds to. Those models of super efforts, breaking taboos, relinquishing old dead ends, could be used by many groups to make profound changes.  

Mercury moves faster than Mars and has just jumped into position, first with Jupiter, then with Neptune & Saturn just 3 hours before the Jupiter square Neptune the day before the Full Moon! The Full Moon is all about decoding the findings and immediately applying them to the next day’s June 18 Saturn sextile Neptune! Saturn’s sextile will bring about Neptune’s dream with aplomb!

Mercury and Mars in Cancer are both askew Jupiter, formed an inconjunct. That’s an aspect like peripheral vision. But as planets, Mercury and Jupiter rule opposite signs Gemini/Sagittarius. Odd as Cancer and Sagittarius are with each other, Cancer ruling homeland and Sag anywhere else you go, they still share the function of communications. Mercury has the words; Sagittarius has the meanings and purpose. Mercury conduits the data, perceptions; Sagittarius makes the plan that connects them to their greater perspective. Mars and Jupiter are both risk taker fire planets. Mars gets you started; Jupiter is so much fun, carries you along and all of a sudden you are someplace else, again! Mercury is happily learning as he goes, enjoys every fresh minute! In fact, he’s busy comparing eateries near the library, while Mars and Jupiter are looking for the sports arena.  

Mercury trined Neptune. If Mercury were not in psychic water sign Cancer, he might find little possibility of connecting with Neptune the Magician of Formlessness. In comparison to seemingly meaningless dreams of immense imagination, Mercury’s mere words seem confining and limiting, even angular. Neptune works more from tonal qualities that morph and blend with no reasons we understand yet. But as they relate now, Mercury senses the unfoldment, a cycle of the Soul, hears the music. Mercury gives a surprisingly accurate story of what Neptune relates, something much more than our average perception. Now it’s time to get people to listen and believe.

Mercury, as Mars, opposed Saturn, and will oppose Pluto. Mercury in Cancer tunes in to Saturn and sees what he frets about, gives him ideas, notices what Saturn does very well, so better than the average person. Mercury is logical and Saturn is scientific. Saturn sees Cancer’s insights as reliable and worthy. Though opposite, Mercury standing back, can see things Saturn got too busy to notice, forgot or left out. They can work well together. Mercury opposite Pluto is a little tense since Pluto likes his privacy. Mercury has curiosity and the urge to bounce information discovered off anyone who will listen, to see what it’s all about. Pluto holds his cards close, so Mercury may be held off. Yet, Mercury in psychic Cancer notices when the eyes go blank, and that’s Pluto’s tell. So Mercury knows where to look further and circles the field looking for more clues and an entry. If Pluto decides to take Mercury into his confidence, and he may do so since Cancer is a protective water sign too, they can cover a lot of forbidden territory that may need an airing. Clearing, renovation, getting funding for building is in the wind. Maybe a safe haven for women, a special school for disadvantaged or special needs children. Clever shortcuts and establishing new connections, renewing old proven connections will smooth the way.

Mercury is shoulder to shoulder, conjunct Mars, bearing witness to tell the story! He not only observes the events, but feels the sequence through his entire being. Mercury takes notes; Cancer has a photographic memory. It becomes part of him. They are exactly together the morning of the 18th, just after Saturn sextiles Neptune! Mercury, having been present the entire sequence, in the most potent moments, gets the scoop! He can tell the whole story! He will continue on, faster than Mars, to observe the final event when Mars opposes Pluto the 19th. Mercury is paving the way, opening people’s minds to receive Mars’ new ideas and embrace his actions!

Venus stands alone in Gemini, sweet with her words and attention.

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron in Aries & Uranus in Taurus continue their 13 years long journey closely together in the background…a small but potent aspect. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. One of their exact aspects is coming June 30. See more about Chiron/Uranus

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

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

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

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

Bowl chart with three in Taurus, three in Aries! 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently part of:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wesak Seasonal Blue Flower Full Moon! 

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

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

Taurus Scorpio 2019 Wesak Buddha Seasonal Blue Full Flower Moon

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Transit of Mercury 2006

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2019 Transit of Mercury Astrology Chart

2019 Transit of Mercury Astrology Chart

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Famous People Born On November 19th

Spring Equinox Full Worm SuperMoon!

Wednesday March 20 at 6:43 PM Pacific, 0 Libra/Aries 09

1st of 2, Blue Moon to come! 0°, Mercury still Retrograde conjunct Neptune!

Aries 2019 First Full Moon Spring Equinox Ukraine

Beautiful Spring in the Ukraine Mountain ranges

Per Earthsky, this year, the March 2019, full SuperMoon, last of the three 2019 SuperMoons, comes less than 4 hours after the arrival of the March 20th equinox, making this the closest coincidence of the March equinox and full moon since March 20, 2000! Next time will be 11 years from now, in 2030. 

This will be the first of two Full Moons spanning Libra/Aries! This one is at the first degree, 0 Libra/Aries 09. The second is an AstroLogical ‘Blue Moon,’ the only 2019 Blue Moon! The April 20 Full Moon will be at the last degree, 29 Libra/Aries 07! This March Moon is a true Alpha time! We are at the first day of Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac, the first day of Spring! Since it spans Aries/Libra, we might say it is Alpha-Omega, the beginning and ‘end,’ since Aries is sunrise and Libra is sunset! Each of these Full Moons greets one of the two outer planets that have just changed signs! The first charges Chiron, the second charges Uranus!

This is the 5th and last Full Moon at 0 degrees! They were in Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, now Aries! Each has been a full arms open embrace to their sign! Sag started the Journey, Capricorn made it so, Aquarius shook the basket, Pisces sweetened the Dream! The last of the five is in Aries at Spring Equinox, new beginnings par excellence!

The Full Moon at Zero degree emphasizes the two recent sign changes! Sun is conjunct Chiron, now at 1° and semisextile Uranus at 0°! This is Sun’s first conjunction with Chiron in his new permanent sign! Sun is welcoming him into Aries and giving him a first day of Spring super solar charge! Sun is a fiery ‘planet,’ so with Chiron now in fiery Aries, they are more easy with each other. This charge will be transferred to Uranus as well because Chiron and Uranus have been traveling side by side the last 10 years and have formed a bond. It’s as if they are traveling as one. Uranus has been in Aries the last 7 years, so receives Sun’s energy quite comfortably. In fact, can’t hurt a bit, he’s quite calmer in Taurus, not used to it, so probably needs a little familiar boost. Sun also picks up some quickie healing tips from Chiron. Chiron’s info is hot off the griddle, fresh, untainted, innovative, yet to be tested. It’s true it’s been 51 years since he was in Aries before and times have changed, but he has been watching from the signs he’s been in along the way and things have developed apace. See more about Chiron into Aries! See more about Uranus into Taurus 

Moon is all by herself all the way on the other side of the chart in Libra! This chart pattern is called a Bucket. She is the ‘handle’ of the Bucket. You could say she’s out scouting for the best relationship connections, alliances, possible, paving the way, assessing cultural formalities to be respected. Or she’s the receiver, radar for what’s coming from that direction, canary in the goldmine. You could say she’s the lead of the whole group, or the tail of the dragon cleaning up any messes that need neutralizing, making deals to secure their gains, making the space behind safe. One way or the other, or all of the above, she’s vital to the operation. Balance is key. Aries is less concerned, if at all, but Libra’s talent is to sense the nuances and keep us all quickly informed. She’s scanning the furthest reaches currently possible. 

Moon is off center from Uranus, but in Libra she always knows when there is a change in the valence. She tends to be culturally correct, prefers calm mediation. Uranus is always a changemaker, and she can tell. He has a certain charge that never sleeps. In Taurus he can make change so gently and calmly you don’t even know it happened. She knows that too. If it isn’t for the greater good, she may warn about it, but it may be hard to make anyone believe her. Naw, that can’t be true, never. Yet he’s in progress. If it’s a change she likes, a good glass of wine from the cellar will be in order. 

Mars is off center from Jupiter. They can get in a lot of trouble! Mars in Taurus can prod Jupiter who lives for dares and loves to play. Mars in Taurus can lag and drag and drive Sag crazy! Sag wants to play and who ever heard of Mars wanting to just lay about?! But in Taurus he can. No matter how cunning and persuasive Sag can be with is big stories and splendid opinions, it has little effect. Mars will leave Jupiter behind in two or three days and the cat and mouse play is over. Oh well. There are few times Jupiter fails to impress so he may be disappointed. Mars didn’t get his way either. He may have seemed too common, or unwilling to take a chance. C’est la vie. Maybe in a couple years….

What Mars did get done was trine Saturn then Pluto. Some great work was done. The price was right and it was timely. Could have involved construction or real estate, stone work, restoration. Some of the people in charge were quite impressed and more connections made. Follow up from time to time. Hire that person for more work!

Venus however, squares him and is probably a little grumpy with him or ignores him. He’s not her type. She’s exotic in Aquarius; he’s common in Taurus. They have way different kinds of intelligence. She won’t pay him what he’s worth, or can’t, at least not now. Wait for a bit, maybe sometime after Mercury goes direct/forward. She in Aquarius may simply be gone to other realms. But if she’s working on a community project and it’s one Mars favors, they could work together after all. She’s likely to get a publishing or travel grant soon. Could be a scholarship and she leaves the area. Stay in touch, but don’t expect miracles. Be ready to let go gracefully if need. 

Mercury in Pisces is stilllllll Retrograde until March 28. The day before the Feb 19 Full Snow SuperMoon, was Mercury’s first conjunction with Neptune. Now he is slowly moving to make his Rx conjunction with Neptune March 24, just before Mercury goes into his 8 day station (stand still). Neptune is the old man of the Sea, the Pisces planet, also IN Pisces! That’s a whole lot of intuition, dreamtime insights. Words may seem almost ridiculous at times and can mean so less than the feelings. But to put the mysteries of the Universe into words is a sweet feat! There are times the masters of words can make you feel you are right there, present in what they are writing about and you forget you are listening or reading. You ‘wake’ up and to your surprise you are right where you are! 

Mercury goes direct (forward) on March 28. He makes the third/final conjunction with Neptune April 2 Pacific time, just before the April 5 New Moon! Mercury is so curious about the ‘unseen.’ Mercury himself is quite logical, visual, so Pisces and Neptune are like an immersion experience for him. He uses his senses more. He wants to put it into words in some way so others can see it too! He talks with Neptune and watches for reactions, nuances. Neptune’s visions are important, should not to be lost in the dream. Mercury is the documentarian of precious perception. See more about the Retrograde!

Mercury is retrograding away from his second sextile with Saturn, and Saturn has moved past his sextile with Neptune for now, to return mid-June. Saturn is presently holding close to Pluto, but retrogrades himself and doesn’t make the conjunction with Pluto until Jan 12, 2020. That and Mercury 
now at 18 Pisces, and Venus, Mars and Jupiter all at 23 degrees, brings us to discuss the important set of upcoming aspects. Mercury ties in with the Pluto chain of events. Our thinking now has relevance. Pay attention to shifts in your awareness. It’s not even so important what you think, but how you think. Venus, Mars and Jupiter are tied to the early 2020 Saturn/Pluto chain of events. Record and work your goals. Find out how to get where you want to go. There are tremendous possibilities!


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!

Pluto is now at 22 Capricorn, the degree where Saturn, potently in his own sign, will catch up with Pluto Jan 12, 2020! Pluto will be at 23 when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential election because they are precisely astrologically linked! Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

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

Be strong and steady as she goes!

Aries New Moon!

Friday April 5 at 1:50 AM Pacific, 15 Aries 17  

7th Mid Sign New Moon, Bowl Chart, My Stars! Pisces Mercury Direct! 

Aries New Moon 2019 Milky Way Bluebonnets Jason Weingart

Magical Milky Way over Bluebonnets! Photographer Jason Weingart calls this magnificent image ‘Deep in the Heart of Texas!’ Order at his site! 

Just a little fire in the belly! No matter that you can’t see them or they are barely a crescent peeping into or out of the New Moon spot, Sun and Moon are having a sweet rendezvous out there in the heavens! Sun is supercharging, and Aries, a hot fire sign, is all in favor! Moon is sizzling all that great Spirit food on the front burner and is raring to go! The babies are rocking in the cradle, the little kids are wild and the teens are more independent than usual! Lovers are happy dancing. Lambs are springtime frolicing!  

Mercury is no longer retrograde nor in station (standing still), and is finishing his three part cycle April 16, only a few days now to put the final touches in place. He made the last magical conjunction with Neptune in Pisces on the 2nd, just before this Aries New Moon. Endings, completions and dreams are on our minds, New Moon making glorious new flowers! Mercury’s three last aspects show in this chart. On the 7th Mercury sextiles Saturn, finishing up some key tasks, your work is paying off, sign the contracts. The 10th Mercury sextiles Pluto, the finances and certain relationships have worthy potentials. Mercury is closing in on his square to Jupiter the 11th. It may not all be true or possible right now. Could be exaggerated gossip or slander, but still, we are called to seek the next adventure! See more about the Pisces Mercury Retrograde!

The New Moon is the last of the 15° New Moons that started in October with Libra, seven in a row! 15° is the mid of any sign, the turning point! In the Hindi Dwadasama system, 15 to 17.5° are the degrees holding a sub influence of the opposite sign, in this case Libra! All three of this year’s Aries lunar events have this Aries/Libra crossover! Aries is independent; Libra is cooperative. Aries is self; Libra is others. They are both fighters. Aries is physical, will use fists if necessary; Libra is wits and courtrooms, negotiators and mediators, peacemakers if possible. Aries shows Libra that being nice doesn’t always get the job done. Stand up and be counted, for Pete’s sake! Libra shows that leaving, abandoning or offending with bristly shouted opinions doesn’t always work either. We seek to come to know each other. You don’t corner your Aries, or smother them with sweets. Yuk. Aries often only really needs to ask. A please doesn’t hurt. Nor do you yell at someone trying to help you. Put your listening ears on. Sharing can touch your heart.

But. A champion is a champion! Someone needs to stand up, even if it begins with only one person! It’s time to offend someone, to make them look, and listen even if they disagree or especially if they disagree! Just because the sleeping masses have a big opinion, the power of numbers doesn’t make them right. New beginnings must start from a seed and be tended to flourish. Show people that they can run, they can get up that hill. Sun figures that’s a no brainer. Moon might need a little convincing, she likes her apple pie, breads, cheesecake. But if it’s women or children’s rights, she’s on it! Together they will get people excited. Just a few words well placed can make a huge difference. Seeds need the right soil and she’s a clever nurturer.

Now, there’s going to be a little bridge to cross, wall to climb. Sun and Moon square Saturn then Pluto. They will be tested. Sun squares Saturn the 10th, Pluto on the 13th. What is too heavy to carry will be left behind. Get your support team experts in place as you address formidable blockages. Could be rocks, could be toxic. There could be injustice, abuse of power, deep grief. Saturn and Pluto are in Capricorn. Protect your property from damage or theft. Don’t be in denial about your career, others on the job. Keep reasonable records of events and achievements in case you need them later. In this period, work with emails, signed papers, rather than handshakes. In spite of what difficulties there may be, remember that Saturn wants to make things right in the long term; Pluto wants to heal. Certain things may just take time. Don’t confront in such a way that they react by digging in their heels just to protect themselves and don’t even hear you. Keep it on an even keel so everyone continues to listen. It will be easier on our nerves and take a lot less time. Change consequences to successes.

As I have said before, New Moons are a regenerative time. Moon is at the end of her 27/28 day cycle. She has been through all the signs, gathering information, giving as she can as she has gone along. She makes lots of adjustments, each sign so different and specialized. She takes the pulse of the people from all walks of life. When she meets Sun, he sees what she has accumulated – awareness of accomplishments, shortcomings, needs that need meeting. Sun floods her with Light energy and she is restored. He appreciates her perceptiveness and caring and is himself restored by her faith in him.

This is a good time to make assessments, put things into perspective. Keep these things in mind as you face challenges. The outcome  may surprise everyone!

Mars, the Aries planet, has just further activated Chiron and Uranus in their new signs! Mars is the planet of new! Being in Gemini now, it’s time to tell the stories, make connections! Chiron is excited to be the new champion of healing and teaching the ways to do it! Uranus will be making a difference in Earth affairs. There will be more awareness of climate changes, environmental remedies. Individuals will take on a one world approach. Some governments may cause delays, but others and many powerful private parties will opt for more long term footage. Mars gets the Word out, is the herald of a new dawn of creation! 

The 3 STARS dance continues! Each time since the October New Moon, all the New Moons since being at 15°, the same stars have been activated but by different types of links! This feisty Aries New Moon makes a challenging square with the renowned Fixed Star Sirius at 14 Cancer! Next month’s Taurus New Moon will be at 14 Taurus making a sextile, so it won’t be entirely over yet. Sirius is the Dogstar in Canis Major, the brightest star in the heavens. It is said to give honor, renown, wealth, ardor, faithfulness, devotion, passion and resentment, and makes its natives custodians, curators and guardians. It also gives danger of dog bites! Woof! Aries doesn’t let sleeping dogs lie. If there are any misuses of power Aries will be around to call Goliath out. If they have gotten complacent, he’ll give the bed a good kick as he walks by. Wake up! Rise and shine!

Moon and Sun are square Sirius’s opposite star Vega at 15 Capricorn. Next month’s New Moon at 14 Taurus will trine Vega. Much smoother. Vega is Lyra’s bright star. She puts beauty, music and arts in our lives. Aries has no time for standing still for harp players. To them music is the sound of a well tuned engine, or a rousing concert! Remember that when you are sending invitations or making the wedding plans, LOL! This is so brief about the stars. Look up more online about their histories, lore, data! Go to spiritual sites for deeper discussions.   

Again, not only is the Dogstar involved, but so is the hunter himself! The New Moon is more happily sextile Orion’s star Rigel at 16 Gemini. Aries likes weapons and Orion is the hunter. Works for him. You might guess Rigel has mixed reviews. Mythologically it was thought to be where the scorpion stung Orion causing Orion’s death. Oops. About Rigel and the Sun, Robson says: Bold, courageous, insolent, unruly temper, hasty actions, bloodshed, many enemies, great good fortune, military success. Shall we run or stay? Elsbeth Ebertin noted a connection of Rigel to the Sun and Moon, in charts of several world record pilots, leading to sudden difficulties in the carrying out of planned enterprises resulting in failures to reach the set target. Sextiles offer opportunities. Aries is adept at quickly picking up the pieces in an emergency. He can astonishingly turn the tables between life and death. Maybe he’ll save the King!

Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently part of:

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

At this New Moon Mercury, no longer retrograde, again stands at 18 degrees Pisces! It is sextile the Ecliptic point, conjunct the mid-June Neptune point, trine the Transit of Mercury point! All these are excellent connections! Mercury is spreading the word. If you made Oct 2018 notes, review them, or check your appt book to see what was important then. Compare that with what you have gotten done since then and revise your goals accordingly. Expand your plans as you anticipate the possibilities!

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

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

All the planets in this chart are in less than half the chart! This is called a Bowl chart ~ it collects, ponders and pours. Jupiter, the first planet, has had us in training, learning more about learning. Mars, our Aries planet, leads the way, spreading the good word in Gemini. This Bowl has especially strong focus in two of its signs, three planets in Pisces and three in Aries, the last and first signs of the zodiac! Collect your dreams, hold them consciously. Release what no longer serves. Prioritize keepers into place for easy access for Aries that they may be acted on right now! Let Aries ram them forward in divine perfection! 

Gather your threads, be clear in our greater purpose, use your instinct.

AstroLogical Blue Moon! 2nd in Libra/Aries! Full Pink Moon! 

Friday April 19 Full Pink Moon at 4:12 AM Pacific, 29 Libra/Aries 07! 

Beauty in Blue ~ Sweet in Pink, Fixed Royal Star Regulus the King!

Aries 2019 2nd Full Moon Rose French artist Cebarre

Sweet ‘Rose’ by prolific French artist Cebarre 

BLUE MOONS! A seasonal blue moon is when there are 4 Full Moons in a season. The third of those is called a Blue Moon. There can be two Full or New Moons in a month and the second is called a Blue Moon. This is the second one of two Full Moons in the same SIGN, an AstroLogical ‘Blue Moon,’ the only 2019 Blue Moon! This is the second of two Full Moons spanning Libra/Aries! The first one was March 20, at the first degree, 0 Libra/Aries 09. The April 20 Full Moon will be at the last degree, 29 Libra/Aries 07! Last chance, make it good!

These emphasize the beginning and ending of their Signs. Take notes at the beginning, layout your goals, a few days before the 19th schedule to see how you have done, take care of anything that still needs doing! These Moons in the same signs emphasize their principles – Libra/Aries. Aries is independent, calls his own shots. Libra reminds we aren’t here alone, but are impinged on by others and we upon them. Sometimes we are not helpful to each other, and that’s ok. We seek harmony if agreement isn’t possible. Other times collaboration enhances our quality of life and we are grateful. Many times the whole is greater than the sum of its parts! 

Sun and Moon have just a little more emphasis this time because they are trine and sextile the fixed star Regulus the King! Regulus was considered to be the leader of the Four Royal Stars of the ancient Persian monarchy, the Four Guardians of Heaven. It is associated with Raphael, the Healing Archangel, Watcher of the North. As of 2012 it changed signs from fiery Leo to earthy Virgo. We have shifted from Father Sun’s sign to the healing Mother Goddess. Regulus still stands at the Lion’s Heart, but in Virgo (sign of nurses, midwifery) it is now more tending as a peer than dominating. Leo the Lion’s story though, has always included magnificent Light Giving and a generous Heart. Even in Virgo, it is still at the Lion’s Heart. Egyptians knew Virgo as Isis, the Goddess of Fertility. Pagans called her the Virgin – Ceres, Demeter, Persephone, that Catholicism translated to the Virgin Mary. Aries fire and Libra air are geometrically in harmony with this now Earth Star. She has respectable skills that keep them well and smooth their daily affairs. She is the technician to their interactions.

Sun and Moon have just passed Venus at 28 Pisces. They are reminded to let Soul quality Love be their guide. She’s the one that makes the difference with her understanding, compassion. She adds grace and flow. The charge in a courtroom case is a little less intense; there is a little less to prove, it’s easier to listen without feeling you have lost power. She’s more gentile and even a small smile changes the tone. Aries’ colors are red and white, pink. Libra is pastels art and lovely florals. Venus is Libra’s planet. The powerful independent Aries leader and the gentile mediators, Libra/Venus, master the forces to bring Peace. The ultimate Peace Rose. 

Sun and Moon have also recently come from a trine and sextile with Jupiter. Jupiter laughed with them, brought them big news from far places, brought them hope and perspective, taught them a lot to be proud of. Sun in Aries felt like he could win the race and Mama Moon was delighted to make a new friend, try out some foreign recipes, to learn and live big!  This time they left him before he moved on. They are willing to gamble on the new plans. They are both clever, even more so at the last degree of their signs, so undoubtedly will successfully enhance what Jupiter had to offer and inspired them to do. Tomorrow they will be leading the way in new signs! The big wheel keeps on turnin’!

At the 0° Libra/Aries Full Moon, Sun greeted and charged up Chiron newly in Aries. This mature 29° Full Moon, Sun is on the brink of joining Uranus newly in Taurus! If Jupiter’s ideas were big, they were but a small preparation to the planetary wide ideas Uranus will enlighten Sun with! And brilliant Sun will be like the fuel in the Rocket! Uranus makes things come alive, electrifies the synapses! The ideas in Aries will be anchored and maintained, amplified and further enhanced in their new setting. They will be simplified and put to good use community wide. Further research and inventions will spring from their baseline! Mercury, no longer in his retrograde cycle, freshly in the Full Moon sign Aries, will spread the word quickly and feedback will supply more fresh ideas. One to the next it will keep going! Great timing!

Neptune can hear Mars in Gemini chattering and nattering from a long ways off,  coming to make the square. Mars can be pesky or wake up old Neptune, probably both. Neptune is used to being bigger than most anything that comes his way, takes it in stride. But Mars is silly fearless, does a spontaneous third eye zap, and whadda you know, Neptune is all ears! Mars better be quick and alert though, or an inadvertent tsunami may sweep him away! If the day is calm and Neptune is bored, up to hearing the latest, they may have a long exchange. Clever Gemini has a lot to say and Neptune is millennia wise. Mars can quickly piece the meaning of the parts together beyond his wildest imagination only to bring a further rhapsody of exchange. Neptune finds a shift in his essence with this new fuel. Mars Initiations quickly trigger releases that allow surprising advances into the future! This could just go on forever…. Just be a little careful or your fire may get unceremoniously put out.

Again and still, Saturn is with Pluto, only 3 degrees apart now. Saturn will retrograde April 29 and they will gradually fade apart. They are close but don’t make their connection until Jan 12, 2020! That conjunction is part of a long cycle…

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!

Neptune is now almost 18° Pisces, will retrograde on Summer Solstice June 21 at 18°! It is precisely tuned in to the Jupiter/Saturn aspects to it at that time, the Ecliptic event of Oct 2018 and Transit of Mercury retrograde Eclipse Nov 11! Neptune brings sensitivity to and understanding of these major events. It sees the links between them, passing the thread through the eye of the needle of one to the next and beyond. We are magically connected to higher realms.

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

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

Secure the ground gained through these important 2018 to 2020 events!

Mercury Retrograde Pisces 2019 Big Sur Coast Bixby Bridge

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

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

About Retrogrades!  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pisces Mercury with Uranus newly in Taurus

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

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

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

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

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

February

Pisces generally gets along well with other water signs Cancer and Scorpio, and earth signs Taurus and Capricorn. It’s challenged by the other mutable cross signs Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius, and fire signs Aries and Leo. Be wise. Check carefully with your astrologer about your personal timing!

At this time of Chiron and Uranus sign changes, Mercury is stirring the Pisces brew! Awareness keeps shifting and adjusting. Who knows what will come of it?! It’s a time of divine discovery!

Keep the magic happening!
