Full Harvest Moon!

Monday September 24 at 7:52 PM Pacific, 2 Aries/Libra 0

Early degrees emphasis, TWO T Squares, Chiron Aries back to Pisces!

Libra Aries 2018 Full Harvest Moon Sunshine Skyway Bridge Tampa Bay FL

Full Harvest Moon shining over Tampa Bay’s 4.1 miles long Sunshine Skyway Bridge! Lovely image by award-winning freelance photographer Jim Sykes. 

Bridges are symbolic of Libra’s purpose, the connections of opposites. Full Moons are the same, specific to the link between Mother Moon and Father Sun. Libra’s Fall Equinox season change 2 days ago is the same. Libra links the fall quarter of the year, and all situations involving from summer, ‘as above,’ to ‘so below’ as we go into the shorter days, longer nights of the darker deeper time of year. Sometimes only Spirit is our escort; other times we go arm in arm, equals meeting the inner workings of our beings. One way or another, we all go. It’s a collective experience we have each year. Some have initial fears of the dark. In time confidence is gained, we enjoy this mysterious dimension, become to love its qualities. In the daytime we are headed toward intense and exhilarating sports in the windblown crisp clear-your-head cooler air!

Only 12 days ago we had the Jupiter sextile Pluto, the far, far from the Sun planet of dark! Jupiter is known for seeing the bright side of things and since Pluto is known for his powerful funds, Jupiter made some lucky deals and raised generous funds for benevolent projects and causes! 2 days ago the Sun went into Libra. Not only did we change seasons, but signs as well! Less Virgo labor now, more social connections, emphasis on collaboration. What was one person’s job has now become an active team of contributors! The result is more whole, more sophisticated, much more than the original intention!These and the Full Moon are all while Chiron is trying on it’s new speed in Aries, pushing for new beginnings, testing new ways of healing, new arrangements in partnerships and doing business!

Tomorrow, Sep 25, Chiron returns to Pisces for a reminder of why we are doing these new things, why they are required next. We go back for another look at where we have failed, the consequences. We are touched with compassion for the suffering of all manner of addictions – food, drugs, to relationships, even at times our so called ‘devotion’ to a spiritual Path. We will get deeper into true spiritual bonds that hold us dear to sacred places and principles we believe in. The Full Moon opens the gates between us, each other and different dimensions. Step back that we may go more powerfully forward later. Maybe we left someone behind, need to say the farewell that wasn’t possible before, or they are ready now and we collect them. Feb 18, 2019 Chiron goes forward into Aries for the next 9 years. At that point it will be 51 years before it gets back into Pisces again. Really seek Chiron’s meaning while it is in Pisces. This is it.

LIBRA & ARIES

While the Libra Sun is shining, Mother Moon is traveling opposite in fiery Aries. She, in all her feminine glory, is standing strongly, leading the way! She feels passionate about independence, woman power, taking the steps that make a difference for our children, our family, the work we do daily because that’s life, the skills we take forward to the next level. She doesn’t hesitate if someone is in trouble or a fire needs putting out! She’s 100% intuitive, swift and to the point!

Libra Sun doesn’t hesitate to introduce himself. He might like to help you, or live the advantage of your expertise. He would like to get to know you and connect you further to the right people and places. He likes to equalize situations, understand the merits of every person involved. Sun considers all the facets at present, the possibilities. There are times when no conclusion is possible. It’s either too late or too early. Compared with Aries, he is reminded there are times you simply must take some action, you’ll never please everyone. Yet he also knows there really are times to wait it out, poised. Aries learns there are times to let it go for now. They can really help each other. We’re making very fine jewelry here. Sometimes you turn up the heat; other times you turn it down and let things gel.

TEN factors make very CLOSE ASPECTS in the Full Moon Chart!

From zero to 8 degrees! 
0 Chiron Retrograde
1 Moon, Uranus, Lilith
2 Sun, Saturn
3 Mars
4 Moon’s North Node always retrograde in general motion
5 Mercury
8 Venus

CARDINAL T Square

Moon is with Chiron kickin’ up the dust in Aries. Let’s get this healing gig on the road! People need it NOW! Moon and Chiron are semisextile Uranus in Taurus, itchy to get going, make changes, but they are blocked by the square with Father Time Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. He’s asking for papers and proof, tests, rules & regs. Moon and Chiron would love to just push him aside, and might do, but there would be consequences that might make a longer delay later. Sigh. Uranus in Taurus, is close in trine with Saturn, has been gently nudging him, so a shift is soon. Saturn slows us down just enough to have the time we need to think more clearly and do it even better after all!

Sun and Mercury have been running into the Saturn bricks too! Saturn thinks of Libra as ‘fluffy,’ not serious enough to be considered. Yet, Libra has Saturn’s eye, since those goods sell better when they are Libra finessed and attractive too, bringing more sales. Saturn is the T point man, so they all have to get his approval before it’s a go. Once they do, Mercury is already ahead! The evening before he trined, consulted with Mars, who is always on the leading edge, and has been excited, expecting things to pop! Mercury has the word, and soon as, is hoofing it outta here to give the good news, gather the local troops! Good chance you signed some papers in the last six days.

Saturn is no dummy! He can just feel all the energy around him and knows better than to over delay and miss the magic moments. He can think pretty fast on his feet when a lot is at stake. Cardinal signs like action, and this scenario just can’t be stopped for long!

Moon and Chiron are sextile Lilith and Mars in Aquarius, the sign of change! Again, when Saturn’s requirements are satisfied, Mars and Lilith will offer an entire group of independent women and leaders in behalf of our efforts! This combo can sweep us ALL off our feet! Hang on!

And Moon and Chiron trine the Moon’s North node, sweetly links the Cardinal squares with the Fixed squares! Moon never lets sleeping dogs lie, and quite more so in Aries! She and Chiron are acting like power boosters. Trine her own North Node bodes well for the new beginnings she hopes for. The North Node swings the balance to equalize the South Node in Aquarius, her Past. In Leo it’s less for Aquarian friends and collaborators; it’s more for what’s in your own heart’s light now.

GRAND Fixed Square too!?

Lilith, woman of power, in Aquarius, the changemaker sign, is at the root at 1 degree! She squares Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius. She won’t be able to move him entirely, because he, though new in Taurus, his new job is to test for organic truth and anchor that in Taurus. What we had always wanted is now couched in new times, so it has to prove itself in current tense. Uranus is square the fixed sign Moon’s Nodes spanning Aquarius/Leo. Mars and Lilith are at the Aquarian South Node, powers of the Past called upon, in this case for chaos! Yet they have a rather odd resonance of invincibility. They want change, and it WILL happen! Though Mars and Lilith are independents, when they call the other independents together they are a force to be reckoned with. The Nodes, in turn, square Venus in Scorpio, but they are always retrograde and are moving away from her. Venus squared Mars way back on the 8th and they didn’t agree. Now she has moved past him. Mercury will make a semisextile with Venus, but it’s not a major aspect. Venus may have memories, but is not likely much interested any more. By numbers we have a grand square. By active planetary motion we really have another T Square. 

Fixed signs are meant to stabilize, anchor, focus and keep our attention on what’s at hand. But two of these signs Aquarius and Scorpio want significant change. Aquarius wants to mend planetary ways, Scorpio wants to transform you body and Soul so you can do the job AQ wants!

Uranus is at the point of the fixed T; Saturn is the point of the Cardinal T! Saturn is the venerable traditional conservative in charge, while Uranus is leading edge technology, often ahead of its times, the Futurist, Rebel with many causes! Interesting that Saturn is leading the Cardinal signs that want action now, yet he is a perfect leader to keep them all corralled so they don’t make mistakes and waste time! Ironically, Uranus, the ChangeMaker, is in charge of the fixed signs that are meant to stabilize us!

The rest of the planets….

Jupiter and Pluto finished their last sextile the 12th. So much potential healing ability was given to be used during these further planetary transitions. See more

Essentially, Venus, and Neptune in his own sign Pisces, stand alone. Neptune is ready when we need him. He’s free to be himself, uninfluenced at this Full Moon time. Venus will NOT trine Neptune until Winter Solstice, Dec 21! She retrogrades at 10 Scorpio 50 on Oct 5, already slowing way down to make the Rx station. She stands still for many days at that turn.

IN THE BACKGROUND

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and getting close to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

This Harvest Moon has a lot of close knit interaction and wants a lot of change! For those of you who have 0 to 8 degree factors in your charts, it is likely to be an intense few days, very involved with what’s at hand, emphasizing heightened person to person interactions.

It’s a pleasure to meet you ~

New Moon!

Monday October 8 at 8:47 PM Pacific, 15 Libra 48

Square Pluto/Ecliptic, Venus Retrograde, Fixed Star Rigel – Again!

Libra New Moon 2018 Under the Stars Together

Nothing like a New Moon night for star watching together!

The New Moon union of Sun and Moon is special in Libra, the sign of relationships. They are looking for equality, each offering vastly different qualities. Sun lights the way, warms the day. Moon has her phases and shape changes, now you see her, now you don’t, never quite the same since all the other planets constantly shift positions. She views them from different angles and notes their progress. Sun absorbs her collections and observations when they merge. She speaks in behalf of the people, their capability, the mood of the times. It’s a potent update. He sees from a huge vantage point, commissions her with distribution of new insights. He recharges her energy because her task is big and requires strength of Spirit. She disseminates the treasured information, always sensitive to the effect it has. As she circles, every point of view gives her a more whole portrait of the evolution of Sun’s ideas. Moon is his invaluable link, collaborator.

They are challenged by their square to Pluto! He is most certainly in the glow of the Sun’s Path around Earth, the Ecliptic. At this point he will conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30, in only 22 DAYS! He may be so absorbed he hardly notices Sun/Moon. He is small, yet he is a powerful Being, and now he’s even being lighted by the most major Light we know! His power would seem beyond formidable, endless. He could be healer, he could be Evil personified. He’s in Capricorn, either builder or crusher. Libra better tread very carefully. This is not a ‘social event’ where you can just walk out the door with no consequences. Pluto knows your intent just about any day. With his powers amplified, you better go in with a clean heart. If you pass his tests, he will help you, build an awesome ‘house’ for you whether it is healing your body or building the Temple. If you don’t pass his tests, he will heal you so you can. If it is not the right time, he will know that too. If the idea is glamorous but false, it will be replaced or vaporized. You will be transformed, like it or not, one way or another!

Sun and Moon do indeed have powers of their own. And, of course, it is Sun’s place Pluto is at. There is an alliance factor. Sun is charging Pluto to the core. Sun’s Light shows Pluto’s best and worst. He may be exposed for what he is. If he has been hiding his talents, he will become known for them. If he has faults, he better get down on that Capricorn knee and be grateful for help. Sometimes the Healer needs healing. No shame. So, it may come to pass the Sun and Moon have their audience. Libra is just the ticket, an ace in delicate situations, reading every nuance, able to step forward or backup quickly as needed. It’s an intricate dance that can have extraordinary results. Respect is everything for Libra’s sometimes nervous subtle perceptions, Pluto’s well protected unspoken fears, Capricorn’s standing, reputation. All kinds of poise will be needed for this dance.

Sun and Moon just inconjuncted Neptune in his own sign Pisces. They are more empathetic. Neptune knows oceanic power, has all kinds of visions and perception. He has freshly transferred some of this to them so they will do better in their encounter with the God of Life and Death, healing and rising from one’s own ashes!

Mercury, also in Libra, is inconjunct Chiron in Pisces, tapping his wellspring of healing knowledge. Mercury’s quick ability may make all the difference. Just a few well placed words at a tense moment, can release the impasse, everyone takes a breath. Mercury is also out-of-sign opposite Uranus. Mercury is skilled at ‘interpreting’ his own way, in this case taking a Uranian odd idea but presenting it as plausibly sensible, catching everyone’s attention. All of a sudden everyone is calm. Oh, that’s what he meant. I see.

Venus is now retrograde and going ‘backward’ is squaring Mars! She’s too nice, and he isn’t. In Scorpio she might not say anything at all, but got what was going on behind the scenes. Mars in Aquarius is just itching to do something shocking. He might be rude or sexually inappropriate. Venus in Scorpio is hard to ruffle, but if he crosses the line, and Venus cuts loose, he may wish he hadn’t, and other people will be on her side. No excuse for her to be mean though. There could be a price connected to that caper. Libra is lawsuits. If things go the other way, Mars may shock Venus into coming out and taking a powerful stand! He could find her helping him present his inspiring project to clients who see the value she sees in it. She could do some fundraising for him if they get past their differences. Just get all the credit ratings, details and facts. See more about Venus Rx!

Mixed Grand Square! The early degrees are again involved, but not near as much as at the Full Harvest Moon. With Uranus retrograde and Saturn moving forward, they are no longer actively trining. The Moon’s Nodes are retrograding to square Uranus though. The Aquarius/Leo axis will find itself being shifted merely by being in Uranus’s company. In Taurus he has subtle electricity. He will have them consider practical changes. The South Node in Aquarius doesn’t like tampering with his genius, yet there is the planet of genius challenging him! The South Node in Aquarius is our past we hang onto, and Uranus is the ChangeMaker evolutionary futurist! What were genius ideas long ago need an update! Leo likes a good show, so is more likely to play but he is the Pet, likes his comforts. At the North Node he is looking for improvements. Taurus wants it to be a safe change that  will bring more comfort if possible, less indulgence at the expense of Earth. Mercury in late Libra can negotiate among them at this point, but when he goes into Scorpio the next day, he may have his own agenda. He may not even want to talk about it, and is stubborn if he does. Gotta show him the value and if it will make money to make him move. Or he may find himself shaking the bushes for funding for the biggest project he has ever worked on!

Fixed Star Rigel! Last month the New Moon at 17 Virgo squared, challenged Rigel at 16 Gemini 50 in the constellation Orion that so gloriously adorns the northern hemisphere winter heaven! THIS MONTH, the New Moon at 15 Libra 48 charmingly trines Rigel! Bluish white Rigel, is a double star, the 7th brightest star in the sky. Tradition regarding the influence of Rigel is quite contradictory. Ptolemy read it as Jupiter-Mars, showing a character that will take on anything before it, but such a person does have to be careful that their courage is used with wisdom and sincere purpose if they are not to be painfully stung for flaunting bravado for the sake of vanity. It is found in charts of government officials, military people, politicians, leaders of political parties, barristers and priests. Rigel proudly champions Libra’s handkerchief into battle and comes back with it to return it to his fair one! She is inspired by his magnificent behavior and vows to live her life more fully herself. They make quite the team!

IN THE BACKGROUND

Jupiter trines Chiron Nov 1, only that once! They aren’t quite close enough just yet for action, but see more to get ready for it. It is part of the 10 day sequence of aspects started when Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

We are living in powerful times of trial and change! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times, what has come to be. Libra lives the crucial function of connecting us, negotiating with dignity and respect, rebalancing our relationships, securing vital alliances. It is an honor. May we meet all our challenges in a good way. And so it is.

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

Most significant Mercury Retrograde Leo-Virgo 2017!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The FIVE part Lunar Sequence!

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

Here’s the Mercury and Lunar Timing!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Isla Vista Shooting Seven Dead

My dear astrological friends, today is sad for many of us in the Santa Barbara/Isla Vista CA area.

A young man, likely Elliot Rodger, son of Peter Rodger, who was an assistant director on “The Hunger Games” film series, was angry last night, in fact, angry for a long time per his previously posted YouTube video. He shot 7 people, his intention revenge, to kill women because women have rejected him. In the process he injured 13 others including a bike rider who has brain injuries and whose life is in the balance as I write. Please hold him, and all involved in your loving thoughts, and pray for the Soul of the shooter.

All astrology is not cheerful. We learn from charts of such difficult events, in hopes of prevention, sometimes avoidance of dangerous times. We hope to help those who suffer, guide the teachers and healers, parents and loved ones as possible.

1) Charts of such events usually have several factors that indicate potential violence. 2) And those charts also connect with the perpetrator’s and victim’s charts. In this case we don’t have Elliot’s birth time yet, so we don’t know all of how his personal chart was triggered to act at this time, but we now do have part of it. See his birth date chart below. 3) Even ‘good’ astrological charts don’t always connect well with some people’s charts. Currently we have a favorable Grand Water Trine in progress. In fact, today Jupiter trines Saturn! 4) Also, ironically, a favorable chart can be used to accomplish a ‘bad’ thing.

Here is the chart at the moment of the first call received at the Sheriff’s Dispatch Center, 9:27 PM (from Sheriff’s statement video).

Isla Vista Shooting 7 Dead

List of difficult factors to consider:

Sagittarius Ascendant – Can feel wronged, want vengeance
Three planets in Aries – Anger, action. Moon in Aries – Anger at women. Uranus in Aries – Unstable, loneliness, fear what you do won’t be acceptable. Venus in Aries – angry at being alone.
Uranus square Pluto – Mass murder, a ‘crazy’ hate, exacerbated extremes. Been in aspect since 2010, finishes March 2015. As it has moved along the degrees, different people and organizations have been triggered along the way.
Mars, anger, Aries’ planet, has been in station, in a standstill square (challenge without change), with Pluto, hate.
Mars has been festering in Libra six months, anger over perceived inequality, not being accepted in relationships, anger at what should be your right.
TSquare – Moon in Aries is opposite this hot hair-trigger Mars. Mars/Aries rules firearms. Moon is also square Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto is the planet of Death, and in Capricorn means and knows how to do serious damage.
Venus in Aries is square Black Moon Lilith. Venus in Aries wants a fight, and square Lilith, against those evil women.
Venus is at the Moon’s South Node in Aries. Raw unhealed wounds from the past can cause great pain.
Sun newly in Gemini square Neptune in its own sign Pisces. Imagination gone awry with an overload of thoughts out of control. Fear of personal failure and it never being over. Suicide.

This is quite a list of factors. Add it all together, and how it likely affected Elliot’s chart, and you see what happened. Yes, there are some positive factors, but not enough, too little, way too late. And as I said earlier, sometimes ‘good’ factors simply allow the ‘success’ of the intent, even when it is bad. And there was also heroism. Bullets flying, two employees of the 7-11 convenience store went out and pulled a woman who was shot in the leg into their store along with giving safety to 36 other people!

Elliot, quite troubled at 22, may have had bad parents; he may have had good parents. His chart is still his own chart. As we know, some Souls can rise above horrible circumstances, survive to contribute, teach, police, serve. Others are somehow just innately broken, beyond fixable.

If you have any of the factors I listed in your own chart, please do not be thinking of yourself as a mass murderer. You may recognize some of the interpretation that you, instead, have learned how to use in a good way. For example, you express your frustrations appropriately and learn how to change the conditions in your life, sometimes with the help of other experienced people. You know how to self soothe and get support.

I ask for your compassion, loving thoughts for this Soul known as Elliot. We haven’t walked in his shoes, Great Spirit. I pray that those lost may rest in peace. I pray for healing for all the injured, the witnesses, their families and friends. I pray for the officers and all helping professionals. This affects so many of us, ones who weren’t even there and may never know any of these people. Talk about it; give each other hugs. If you can help in any way, please do.

I knew it was serious when I heard all the sirens last night.

Evening May 24  We now have Elliot Rodger’s chart. Per his Manifesto, He was born the morning of July 24, 1991 in Lambeth, South London. Exact birth time not given.

Elliot Rodger May 23, 2014 Isla Vista CA Mass Murderer, Shooter

This chart is done for 6 AM, the mid of morning – between midnight and noon. I chose a zero degrees Aries ascendant due to not having the exact birth time. The Moon can be anywhere from 0 to 5 degrees Capricorn 56 minutes. His Ascendant can be anywhere from 5 Taurus 56 to 11 Libra 41. We don’t know what houses the planets are really in. He’s NOT Cancer; he calculates solidly as a Leo Sun.

It is now known that he was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome and has been in the care of several therapists.

About Elliot Rodger

Sun, Jupiter, Mercury in Leo – Generous, warm hearted,very interested in romance, self learning, with a dramatic tendency, Jupiter exaggeration concern for rights and justice, can thrive in education.

Moon is in Capricorn along with Uranus and Neptune. In traditional astrology this would be considered genius/artist, an infalible intuitive, or insanity. The Moon is emotional, irrational; Uranus is unstable, friendless; Neptune is undefinable, misunderstood. In Capricorn it can imagine the worst, be depressed, never fit into ordinary daily life, in sorrow for parental approval. Sometimes Moon in Capricorn, especially with Uranus, interprets their Mother/Women to be cold, and often they are themselves.

Uranus in Capricorn is in Mutual Reception with Elliot’s Saturn in Aquarius – in each other’s signs. This doubles the potency of the power of these principles. Uranus breaks with traditional authority, or is abandoned by it. Saturn wants to corral what is likely already lost, in this case, likely his Father. Sometimes this is brilliance in science, computers, electronics.

Sun opposite Saturn in Aquarius. This too indicates a distance, separation, or perceived as such, from his Father. At minimum, they would have differing opinions and Elliot would have wished his Father really did discipline him, or the Father’s way of dealing might have been to send the boy away. Or so it seemed to Elliot, and was likely true. This would have been abandonment and a great cause of grief, a primal invisible assault on his manhood, and for a Leo man’s man that would be awful. On the other hand, when the Father tried to reach out to him, he may have shrunk away, or have been so unreachable as for the Father to give up knowing it was impossible….

Mars with Venus in Virgo. Virgo isn’t called the Virgin for nothing. The Leo part of Elliot was romantic, and saw that as a part of life to seek. At the same time, Virgo can be so self critical that they always set it up to be rejected before they ever have to be tested. Mars may come on too strong when approaching women, the admiring, affectionate kind Venus not having a chance. The more the ‘failure’ happens, the cruder and more irritable the Mars gets, then women get afraid and veer off.

Asperger’s is often associated with inappropriate behavior. I would put that more with the Moon/Uranus/Saturn combination. Uranus is considered odd, or eccentric, even asocial. In combination with the frustrated Virgo combination, Elliot could have gone from slick too smooth Leo, to scary strange guy.

In combination with the Isla Vista shooting chart

Saturn in the sky now is right where Elliot’s Pluto is and square E’s Jupiter. Saturn conjunct Pluto is one of the hardest aspects there is, for anybody. It squeezes you where it hurts when there is unfinished business you didn’t want to look at. It makes you aware of your deepest failures, the poison in your Soul. It happens once every 29 years. Saturn square Jupiter takes all the fun out of things and makes you sure you’ve been done wrong. What hope you’ve had is hard to come by. Even God has failed you, so it must be your fault. Horrible hard hitting loneliness and depression, despair. Major difficult pair of aspects.

Saturn was accompanied by the current Grand Water Trine Jupiter and Chiron, trining his Pluto. This is one of those ‘good’ aspects gone awry, making it too easy to do a bad thing, and succeeding at it. If there is going to be weeping, the water signs can do it. Jupiter makes it a big event. Chiron wounds and eventually teaches as we heal. Saturn with Pluto is finality, so we mourn our irreparable losses.

Pluto is right at Elliot’s Uranus and Neptune. Pluto is famous for going to extremes and taking 248 years to make its circuit, this would be the only time this combination would ever occur in his lifetime. Uranus can be perversions, strange attitudes. It can be 100% alone or fame/infamy. Pluto is Death, and Neptune is the Soul or Soulless. In Capricorn there can be a stone coldness, rigidity without compassion or much insight.

With Uranus square his Neptune, he didn’t know what to think any more. In some way, his Spirit was interrupted, broken, scattered. He lost his better focus that kept him with us. He wanted to be free of all this burdensome unmitigated entanglement with no connections as he would have liked them to be.

There are other aspects, and there are things we don’t know since we don’t have his birth time, but to me, these are the toppers. As to why that night? The Moon in Aries squared his Moon and Uranus in Capricorn. That’s a classic all hell breaks loose combination and is common in divorces. The events are often sudden and shocking. The entire attack took place in 10 minutes.

Some would say these are troubles of a young Soul. Society works to help, tries to assimilate with some success. It might take many lifetimes. And in some ways, his troubles are our troubles, both in ourselves and in Society. Please see the Guardian’s …Misogyny Kills, about Elliot’s part in this social issue.

In spite of the pain and difficulty, we learn from this tragedy.

Venus Libra Divine Feminine Grand Square Cross Aug 2013

Aug 21, the last day of Leo, Jupiter in Cancer finished and started!  It made the last aspect of the TSquare it has been traveling through since July 17, with its square to Uranus in Aries.  And it made the last aspect of the Grand Water Trine, to Chiron in Pisces.  Yet both of these aspects are the firsts of three.  Jupiter will square Uranus two more times, Feb and April 2014.  Jupiter will trine Chiron Feb 2014 at almost 12 degrees and, last time, in May 2014 at 17 degrees.

Aug 25 we do and don’t have another Star of David, Grand Sextile, Hexagon! 
Yes, all the Water and Earth signs have planets in them.  But the degree connections between them don’t meet my specs.  If you use a 5 degree range, to show the Star lines drawn in, the Moon, has to be at 6+ degrees Taurus to sextile Jupiter, which has now moved ahead to 12 degrees.  This is important because this is the only way the Moon fills the 6th point to make the Star at all!  In the Star of July 29, the Moon immediately connected to every planet in the Star, all the aspects activated and applying (upcoming)!  In this one, several aspects have passed by the time Mama Moon connects with Jupiter.  The Moon shall have already made her trine to Sun and Mercury in Virgo, and the sextile to Neptune in Pisces.  Which really doesn’t matter because Jupiter is at 11/12 degrees while the Sun and Mercury are at 2 and 3 degrees, just too far away from each other to make that 6th sextile, point of the Star.  That is more range than I use for active aspects.  So, by my standards, no, we don’t have a 2nd Star of David.

What we do have is Venus, in one of its own signs, Libra, continuing the TSquare that Jupiter finished the 21st, making a Cardinal Grand Cross/Square, that starts Aug 20, culminates the 27th!

Venus adds desire!  In Libra, it quickly, on balance, evaluates the worth of the results of the TSquare, instigates new action (cardinal signs) on point, carries the energy forward a few more days, makes sure important liaisons to get the job done are made.  If the TSquare released raw results, Venus insists on more elegance, mercy.  Just because things didn’t go our way, it doesn’t mean what happened won’t pay off in time.  You weren’t wrong, just breaking through, maybe a bit of a rough ride.  This period would not be a traditional wedding choice.  But do shake the tree!  Nothing like a little chaos to make Magic!

  • Using a 5 degree range, it started Aug 20th, coming into range to square Pluto in Capricorn, exact Aug 24 at 2:59 AM Pacific.  Since it is mid of night, the strongest effect is essentially on the 23rd.  Consider who you do it with, how much you earn, whether it pleases you.  Take it easy on sugars.  Face it about the need to heal – bodily, emotionally, mentally.  Take time to socialize with people you trust and who are succeeding in a good way.  Share secrets and revelations sometime after the 27th.  Now could be too much too soon.  Obliterated or insightful.  Things need to be not just functional, but pretty too.  Wait on beauty treatments; you may never be quite pleased with that choice.  Financial differences of opinion likely.
  • FYI Aug 25 there are 4 factors at 11 Degrees – Venus, Lilith, Chiron, and Uranus!  Lilith, just with Jupiter, is retrograde square Uranus!  Outrageous Lilith with unpredictable Uranus!  More about women and the rights of the People.  Shadows.  Dark in the Light; Light in the Dark.
  • Aug 26 Venus opposes Uranus in Aries.  Unique but acceptable.  Attractively wild and free.  Sporadic gains, but generally upward.  Beauty and the Beastie!  Shockingly rude or grace beyond belief!  Separated from your friends, possible breakups.  Wait to talk until times are more stable a few days after the 27th.  Build a bridge to the group you would like to serve with.  Give a smile to a stranger, even if you don’t get your way.  Odd.  Don’t take the plane?  Distractions – pay attention where you are going.  A one woman adventure or millions at one.
  • Aug 27, Venus finishes the Grand Cross with its square to Jupiter in Cancer.  A lot to lose, a lot to gain.  It was just too much.  The cost, too much to do, too big a ceremony.  You didn’t want to go there, but were intrigued.  It wasn’t fun, but you learned.  You had to surrender your plans, another direction, another meaning.  Wait to re/decorate, buy materials.  Diversified or one pointed.  Ethical differences.  Faithless or faithful.
  • On the 27th Mars leaves Cancer, enters Leo!  Out of the house, no more cheffing, off to exercise, the games, the party!  Everything has been reassessed, now it’s time to take action, and do it your way!

Venus in Libra searches for peace, beauty in every breath every moment of every relationship.  It seeks pure values.  Be true.

This Grand Cross is part of the Leo Full Blue Moon!
