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

2018 Chinese New Year of the Brown Earth Dog! Australian Shepard

Those blue eyes! Australian Shepard by Eileen Kumpf/Getty Images

In the US New Year’s Day started with the Full Wolf Supermoon! The Chinese New Year is the year of the Brown Earth Dog!

In the US, Friday Feb 16, the day of the second New Moon after Winter Solstice in China, Chinese New Year 2018 is celebrated! This particular New Moon is a Solar Eclipse Feb 15 at 1:05 PM PACIFIC at 27 Aquarius! In addition, there are two occultations, mini eclipses, making it like a triple eclipse event! Feb 15 the Moon occults Mercury at 10:05 AM Pacific. The Moon acts as a perfect channel for Mercury to Earth, filtering Mercury’s data and logic through Moon’s feelings. We may have a softened expression, more care about what we think, how we say it. We may have a lot of feelings about what we hear. Feb 16, New Year day, the Moon occults Venus in Pisces at 8:36 AM Pacific! The Moon channels Venus grace through the veils of Pisces the sign of compassion and mercy. Think of the Chinese Bodhisattva, Kuan Yin, the beautiful Buddha. She will hold love and beauty, peaceful kindness, as we follow the mandates of the year of the Brown Earth Dog.

Previous Dog years were 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, now this one 2018, and next is 2030! The Dog occupies the eleventh position in the Chinese zodiac, after the Rooster, and before the Pig! When determining your year, remember, the first day of the New Year falls at the new moon between January 21 and February 20, so the date of the new year varies year to year. Dogs are akin to western astrology’s 7th sign Libra.

When I think of Earth Dogs in a literal sense, I think of low to the ground pups like Dachshunds and Basset Hounds, and dogs like Terriers that love to hunt animals that live in the ground. When I think of Libra, pretty well groomed social dogs come to mind, like Poodles, Papillons and King Charles Spaniels, maybe a purebred that’s show quality! Could be a fluffy pure cute, or a non-shedding sleek short hair. Super smart and courageous working dogs are certainly on the ground! Corgis, Australian Shepards, Queensland Healers, Collies! In the Spirit sense, dogs nowadays are considered part of our families, loyal protectors that would give their lives for us.

Human Dogs certainly live up to these admirable traits! They are perceived as very loyal, honest and faithful companions, loving and attentive, not argumentative and they dislike confrontations. Sweetly, Dogs are usually good at remembering anniversaries and other special relationship moments.

Just like a dog will love you no matter who you are, Chinese dogs are considered to be fair, unprejudiced and companionable. They are always alert and aware of things and people around them. Though some prefer to work alone or in small groups, the Libran Dog is adaptable enough to fit in anywhere. These are hard workers who are conscientious, responsible and reliable. They are good with finances and would rather save up than borrow. They live within their means, are frugal buyers, favor quality and real value over quantity. They usually acquire a comfortable lifestyle.

Dogs’ weakness is they tend to be private worriers, sometimes giving the impression they have a stubborn personality. Better to verbalize your concerns, get fresh insights with others. Bless their hearts, they are likely to worry more about others than themselves. They seem to sometimes try and take responsibility for or be too understanding of the actions of others. Denial or too much forgiving. Having a supportive partner will help these doggies to share their personal thoughts and anxieties so they don’t mount up.

Outdoors is good, boring is bad! Dogs need to breathe some great fresh air and get exercise, love meeting new people! They can be serious but know how to take time out  to refresh themselves. Share walking, driving, running, or just relaxing in the garden with your dog friends. As long as it is outside they are not usually fussy about what it involves doing.

Dogs are instinctual and intelligent. They will accept leadership from a true leader as long as it makes sense to their belief system. Dogs are not always leaders themselves but will be close to leaders, who can count on the Dog to save the day. But don’t forget the bite! Always cautious and alert, sometimes undecided, the Earth Dog will bite when he feels threatened or betrayed! You may lose his business.

Famous Dogs:  Fire Dog Trump – this was an ultimate Eastern insult: North Korea said Trump’s speech to UN was akin to ‘sound of a barking dog.’ Famous dogs: Sylvester Stallone, Andrea Bocelli, Elvis Presley, Barry Manilow, Winston Churchill, Mother Teresa, Uma Thurman, Bill Clinton, George Gershwin, Judy Garland, Steven Spielberg, Justin Bieber, David Bowie!

Famous Earth Dogs: Madonna, Michael Jackson, Michelle Pfeiffer, Billy Idol, Al Capone, Prince!

A heartfelt welcome and shout out to all the new little Brown Earth Dogs to be born this year!

Gong xi fa cai, my dear friends, and especially to all you Dogs! Woof!

Total Lunar ECLIPSE Full Blue SuperMoon!
150 Years! Moon’s Nodes, Venus, Mercury & Jupiter!  

Wednesday Jan 31, 5:27 AM Pacific at 11 Leo/AQ 34!

2018 Total Lunar Eclipse Blue Blood SuperMoon

First time in 150 years!!! Being the Second Full Moon of January, makes it a Blue Moon! And, it is the FIRST ECLIPSE of 2018! The Moon turns a rusty blood red as it passes through Earth’s shadow. Annnd, it will be visible in most of western North America! At 5:27 AM Pacific, we Westies will be getting up early!

Being a SuperMoon, our Eclipse will be closer to Earth, just a little bigger and brighter! Leo Moon loves it that way! Praying for a clear early morning sky! Snug in your down jacket, warm boots, and bring the hot chocolate!

The Eclipse group closely spans the Moon’s nodes, Moon at the North node ascending! Time to light up the night! Leo warms the heart, creates a generous space, shares volumes! Moon cares about and Leo dotes on loved ones and they both love being sweeted and treated! Bring the kids, both children and adult kids, that is. In fact, why not gather in the field or on the mountaintop for Eclipse viewing?! Leo calls us to stand tall in ourselves, calls our bodies and Spirits to be champions. Leo IS the sign of our sun, LIGHT.

At the other side of our Full Moon, Sun and Venus are together in Aquarius! Sun in AQ loves the heavenly view, could even be on a flight and watching the Eclipse from altitude! Sun is a great friend in Aquarius, and he and Venus love the blessings of their friends. There is such beauty in each unique Soul, gifts beyond measure. They offer a loving kindness, a grace to all. The gathering, their unity, is so much greater than one alone.

Collaborating is a grand tactic! Leo offers the fire of inspiration, enthusiastically their entire selves, to the cause. Aquarius gathers the Souls. Aquarius can be a loner at times, contemplating the astonishing possibilities of change and evolution! And there are times they just need to be free. Just free. They drift away. Sometimes they don’t come back. But if, when, they do, they are supercharged and things get delegated and done!

The Eclipse is at 11 degrees. Neptune neighbors the Sun at 12 Pisces, and inconjuncts the Moon. Neptune adds mystery, an unknown dose of magic, invisibilities like dreams, ideals, Spirit of the Soul. It seeks to heal the causes of addictions, as well as to make music and art. It calls for compassion and empathy as well as thoughtful humanitarianism. Neptune reflects Moon’s light that shimmers on the waves and waters, that she may see many more facets of life and creation. Leo can be stubborn sometimes, enjoying things just the way they were, but Moon has her cycles and Neptune dissolves us into future fate, gives an invitation to an even bigger life! Imagination is key!

Caution. Venus is soon to square Jupiter, Feb 3 at 10:07 PM Pacific. In Aquarius she wants the world or doesn’t care at all, about anything! Jupiter thinks she should have it if she wants it, but in Scorpio, the question is how much and who pays for it?! Is she being greedy or selfish? If it’s a fundraiser there may be trouble getting started, the donor reneges or has left the country, or wants too much control of the operation. Venus may want something people don’t understand, too exotic, ahead of its time. Lot of explaining/demonstrating to do or they just don’t get it. Break it down into smaller bites and start with what can be done at this time. Pay attention to security matters and keep tabs on existing accounts. Principles matter. If the donor is unethical, you may decide not to accept the offer. Check the contract carefully. Oh, and this is not the One, at least not at this time.

Mercury is at the very brink of Aquarius, carries the Full Moon information forward! The Eclipse is 5:27 AM Pacific; Mercury goes into AQ 13 minutes later, 5:40 AM! Capricorn work is so finished! Mission accomplished, feather in our caps! Mercury’s best sign is considered to be Aquarius, the sign of genius! There is a whole Universe out there to explore, playground of the Gods! There is often a little bit of delightfully giddy chaos! Connections are made at light speed, a streak through the heavens! Networks come together. Phones and internet are too slow. Astonishing ideas. Research is on the cutting edge. And this is only the beginning! It’s a brief flare as Mercury rides the lightning so do it NOW! He goes into Pisces Feb 17, but what a ride! The word is out and the lights are ON!

Though it was exact Jan 15, the day before the New Moon, the powerful long term background aspect Jupiter sextile Pluto is still strong! And it will continue to be! Jupiter and Pluto travel less than 3 degrees of each other for FOUR months to the retrograde aspect April 14.

Jupiter will come close to its trine with Chiron, but retrogrades 2 degrees before it completes. Very close, but won’t complete that trine until Nov 1, and then only once. There is a strong desire for deep healing, healing of the cause, at the source. There is a longing to do business that matters in a good way. We whisper of eternal love, set a greater standard, wait for the right timing.

With Jupiter & Pluto, expect further shifts in educational status. Divorce, custody and inheritances could be favorably resolved. Be ultra-kind and keep long term healing in mind. Favorable marriages could be made, both for love and money! Sex could knock your socks off! Try out new investments. Invest more later if it goes well. Buy the home if you have the opportunity. Careful timing is required this year due to some complex and lengthy inner planet retrograde sequences. See your astrologer to see if it is a good time for you and when your personal exact best timing is. Resolve to be of service to your community.

Literally, keep the future in mind and take action accordingly. 2020 and 2021 are very soon. Keep climate in mind. Seek higher, safer ground with good water and sustainability. Be with people making the world a better place.

Happy SuperMoon Eclipse viewing!

Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon!
Chinese New Year, Fixed Star Algol, Venus, Mars & Jupiter!

Thursday Feb 15 at 1:05 PM Pacific, 27 AQ 08!

Aquarius 2018 New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse

The day after Valentine’s Day, a partial Solar Eclipse, the Moon cookie bites the Sun! Not visible in North America.

In the US, Friday Feb 16, the day of the second New Moon after Winter Solstice in China, Chinese New Year 2018 is celebrated! In addition to the New Moon, there are two occultations, mini eclipses, so it’s like a triple eclipse! Feb 15 the Moon occults Mercury at 10:05 AM Pacific, before the New Moon here. The Moon acts as a perfect channel for Mercury to Earth, filtering Mercury’s data and logic through Moon’s feelings. We may have a softened expression, more care, about what we think, how we say it. We may have a lot of feelings about what we hear or say. Feb 16, Chinese New Year in the US, the Moon occults Venus in Pisces at 8:36 AM Pacific! The Moon channels Venus grace through the veils of Pisces the sign of compassion and mercy. Think of the Chinese Bodhisattva, Kuan Yin, the beautiful Buddha. She will hold love and beauty, peaceful kindness, as we follow the mandates of the year of the brown Earth dog. See more about the Brown Earth Dog year!

Moon aligns and merges with Sun, an essence of the two Lights in Aquarius. At a late degree, 27, it is a mature Sun. In the last 27 days much has happened and been accomplished. An annual recentering and affirmation has brought Aquarians back to their extraordinary Light Body selves. They are at their final charging for their year to come. It takes energy to awaken humanity, to introduce changes, to gather such diverse Souls for collaborative group work. Hats off to these Beings. Sun literally lights the way; Moon nurtures the clan, the mothers and children, the weak and tired. She retrieves those who are lost.

Moon and Sun have both also been charged by Uranus, their own planet! They just sextiled Uranus. Uranus in Aries is like a fire breathing dragon! There is no missing its wild electric scent! There’s fire in the forge. Time to give a little shove in the right direction. Throw down the gauntlet and see who comes. One person, one act, is all it takes to start it going. Aries is ignition and initiation! Aquarius is the Awakener! Feel that tingle of excitement! Once up and out, you can still go back, but it’s not the same old, same old. Nope.

To add to it, Mercury in Aquarius just sextiled red hot and spicy Uranus in Aries! That’s potent for two reasons. Mercury’s best sign is considered to be Aquarius, genius! And Uranus is the Aquarian planet! Crazy, amazing, odd and exotic ideas zip through our minds! We go from just wanting our freedom to wanting to join the most fabulous exciting organization to ramrod our project that never seemed possible before, but here it is now! We make super friends in an instant. The world is awakening and it’s time for meaningful change! Seeds are being planted. Mercury carries these ideas right to the heart of the Sun Feb 17! He jumps right into the LIGHT! He receives the infusion, the charge, the batteries are stoked for the next run! He goes right into Pisces that night, so it may be a bit murky for a while, but he has the torch! It’s not dark for long though – the Sun follows into Pisces the next day!

Venus is sextiling Saturn to make sure it all gets done. Saturn is in his own sign Capricorn. That equals getting the job done by definition! Capricorns are efficient and dedicated. Saturn carries the mission to completion. Venus in Pisces has the dream and Capricorn is her valiant ally and guardian. She admires his work, gives thanks for what he builds brick by brick, board by board. She sweetens Saturn’s day.

Chiron also in Pisces, but at a much later degree, is square the Galactic Center. He vows to make the breakthroughs required to make it all possible, be so much more than expected!

Adventurer Mars in Sagittarius loves a challenge and in Sag is the champion of the greater Truth! He doesn’t publish stories, he IS the story! At this point he is square Neptune, the Pisces planet in Pisces! He is poised to put the whammy on Neptune’s fears and addictions, release the Princess from her prison of her own making! The New Moon gets right to the center of things, so Mars is perfectly placed. Aquarius puts an air of detachment on things, allows less emotionalism, more clarity. These breakthroughs may be shocking at the moment of the breaking, but there is kind of an Ah…. about it too. Finally, released. We had been waiting. The Eclipse first also helps. It gives some quieter moments yet the channel is intense. The message comes through. Mars makes the exact square the 17th 3:21 AM Pacific, so essentially, the 16th is the active day.

‘Fixed Stars’ is an old astrological term referring to stars rather than planets that move along the backdrop of the stars. Our last New Moon trined Algol, but this time it squares Algol, 26 Taurus. Algol is thought of as bad, the baddest. If you are born at 26 Taurus or have factors at 26 degrees, you may have some potent personal insights. It’s the head of the Gorgon – hangings, losing your head. Algol can be the dark, painful rage of the feminine – Lilith, sexuality. There can be intensity or ruthlessness, or an outpouring of creative work! Algol holds the unique factor of being a binary star. It ‘blinks’ when its sister star crosses it! When she’s dark, she’s bad. The detached aspect of Aquarius, unafraid, sees problems squarely and shockingly may tell all out loud. That bald assessment may cause the outer shell to be shattered, we then be free to heal a long held layer of agony. That sounds melodramatic perhaps, but it can make all the difference whether we stay in chains or move forward with our lives.

Jupiter sextile Pluto in Capricorn continues in the background. Wealth, super health, possibly the mate of a lifetime!

Jupiter is in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign, so the link is in sync! Scorpio and Capricorn are pros. Scorpio makes the money that funds Capricorn’s goal! Capricorn uses it precisely, no time wasted, so the money goes further than expected. Good chance the project makes money before it is even finished! Scorpio makes astute relationships, whether personal or business. Capricorn places people well along the way, competently assessing their abilities, leading them to higher places they never knew they could get to. Health improves with happiness, and being in that right place at the right time can make us forget we ever had troubles. Think improvements, modernizing, sustainability! Good job!

Jupiter wants to educate, and Scorpio doesn’t spare the depth, perfecting every detail from inside to out! Jupiter sees the long term, so Scorpio opens his eyes below, above and beyond! This inner and outer vision at once opens all kinds of corridors. Old debris is carted away, energy is freed. Jupiter shouts the glory with a mighty song, perhaps not unlike the mischievous opera singer Cecilia Bartoli! (She has Jupiter in Cancer mutual reception Moon in Sagittarius!) Jupiter feels the huge support Scorpio offers with his strength and inner knowing. Scorpio is impassioned by the potential Jupiter sees and knows is within reach! See more

Jupiter is slowing to retrograde March 9 at 23 degrees Scorpio. He almost trines Chiron, inconjuncts Uranus. Those aspects will come Nov 1 and 7. With Chiron we see the potential for alternative healing and business methods, the possibility of personal and financial partnerships. Head in those directions. The inconjunct with Uranus will take us new directions; we will consider some unusual options. Keep looking. We have hints of what’s to come, we start getting ready. We may be disappointed when it doesn’t happen yet. Seeds have been planted. Nurture them for as far as they have gotten. Some may be slumbering; keep them alive. Enhance their habitat so they can do good work when it’s their time.

Aquarius is an air sign. Do some breath work. Sing your Om shanti. Make your call to the brethren. They will come.

Full Virgo/Pisces Corn Moon!  Regulus & a lot of Mercury! 

New Moon!  Five Planets in Virgo!
New Moon & Jupiter Aspecting Chiron & Uranus!

The Virgo Moons are finishing the Mercury Retrograde cycle. Both Leo New Moons were linked to the Mercury Retrograde cycle, and both the Virgo New and Full Moons are as well!

This Mercury Retrograde is entirely unique! It was the holder of the Aug 21 Second Leo New Moon US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE that was at the degree the whole Mercury Retrograde cycle started 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 started – not the retrograde, the cycle! The retrograde started August 12 in Pacific time. Expect that projects you started from July 24 through Aug 12, will not come out exactly as planned. The exciting US Total Solar Eclipse was during the Retrograde part of the cycle! 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!

The Rx cycle includes two signs: Leo the genetic Heart of the LightBearer; Virgo the DNA LightWeaver!

Aug 21 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!

Augx22   Happy Virgo!

Full Virgo/Pisces Corn Moon! – Regulus & a lot of Mercury!

Wednesday Sep 6, at 00.03 AM Pacific, 13 Virgo/Pisces 53!  

Virgo 2017 Full Moon Clouds Pink

Sep 5 Mercury goes Direct – forward at 28 Leo the Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse degree! When a planet turns direction, it is called being in Station – being still in the sky, with no apparent visual motion. With Mercury it is an 8 day period, 4 before, 4 after the turn. There is an in dwelling, a deepening focus, a thorough examination of the matters at hand, strengthening, an anchoring of a thought or principle. Choose your thoughts carefully, select the best of your hopes and plans. Though the Full Moon doesn’t connect with Mercury by degree, Sun and Moon are held in this stance, place of mind. If you stand still until you really see. The differences of Moon in Pisces, Sun in Virto, become more apparent, each having its own value, a necessary contributor to the greater cause. At the time of the Eclipse, Moon and Sun were in Leo. Now they are spanning Virgo to Pisces. Time to use the Leo heart energy to take the next step, make your dreams come true.

This Full Moon is Moon in Pisces, the Master Dreamer and Visionary, opposite Sun in Virgo the DNA LightWeaver, Healing Goddess! Pisces Moon is at the mast! She holds the Voyage, sometimes adrift, sometimes fearlessly surging through a gale and high seas! Virgo charts the stars, minds the crew, weaves their Souls intricately in fine patterns to get the job done most magnificently! Each compliments the other. When Moon is spread too thin, Sun in Virgo gathers in the bits so they pull together. When Virgo over thinks, worries, Pisces reminds that there are greater powers that guide us and the cause is the cause, always!

Moon has just been with Neptune, Pisces’ own planet, so she knows this to be doubly true, formidable, and psychically uncannily accurate! 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.

Moon is inconjunct Venus in Leo! There will be a call to the arts – music, film, video, theatre. There will be the grace of water sports – wind sailing, paddle boards, surfing and sailing, kayaking. Seeing the world on an ocean cruise will fulfill a need to connect beyond the ordinary. There may be a mediation group or Tai Chi, Yoga class that brings you to silence, peace, serenity, tranquility. As super new things change in your life, old addictions that held you captive will be forgotten and replaced with a vibrant competence. There are new reasons for living, possibly a sweetheart becomes apparent, steps up!

Sun in Virgo is radiant. She plants seeds, walks in the woods. She clears and cleans letting bright light shine. She creates space that allows mind clearing air flow! Flowers bloom leading us to heal more quickly. Deep breath. Sun trines, a strong favorable connection, with Pluto, the Master of the Underworld, yet the Phoenix that rises, lives again! Revelation fired by the Kundalini, the energy at the base of our spines, uplifts us to the Eagle’s keen perception. Virgo sees the illness, keeps us comfortable that Pluto may heal the cause. As humans we come with some flaws, a work in progress. Some matters that need healing are from past lives, others are when we have harmed ourselves, or been harmed by others. It’s a challenging job to weed out and sort the mess, but Pluto is undaunted by complex circumstances. Pluto, in Capricorn, drives the effort. He knows how valuable an experienced person can be, how strong they are to have faced it and made it. Virgo is there all the time with that candle, bringing Light to the Dark. She makes sure the spiritual operating theatre is good for the work and is skillful at rewiring old mindsets.

Moon and Neptune are right there too, sextiling Pluto. They are intuitive to each other, speak and see as one. They see the child, how parental and cultural background has significance. They see how broken or abandoned dreams have had consequence and speak to subtleties about how to process their release. They know how to instill a greater vision now that times have changed and the person is more mature and able.

28 LEO Mercury stands close to the Inconjunct with Chiron in Pisces and trine with Uranus in Aries, but it is just whispers and hints, faint reminders. Mercury inconjuncted Chiron and trined Uranus back on about July 22nd, and on July 24th. So much has happened since then. The context has changed… What is significant is 28 Leo was the degree of the Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse! Whatever was special to you about that Eclipse, it is time to think on and talk about! Remember, Mercury in Leo is in station, so we want to anchor your best ideas, the ones of heart and Light, ones with special potential. I hope you made some notes at Eclipse time, because it isn’t over yet if that Eclipse activated your chart! (See your astrologer!)

While stationed in Leo, Mercury is trine Uranus, the planet considered to be the highest echelon of intelligence! Mercury is quick on his winged feet spreading the news, but Uranus the genius rules the Universe, evolution, awakening, flight, and the Internet, LOL! But really, what can one do without the other?! Mercury needs information to share; Uranus needs someone to spread the Word! Mercury teaches us how to learn, speak well in a good way. Uranus opens us to realms of Being we never knew existed! Both are essential. Uranus is currently in Aries the sign of Initiation, champions, leaders! Leo is the HeartLight, creation, young people finding themselves. Love and leading go well together! Uranus will surely change our minds for the better in that 8 day station! We will keep the thoughts, add a few of our own, and let them be known far and wide. Bright.

Mercury in Leo, hopefully with grand projects on his mind, is just about to change signs into Virgo Sep 9, catch up with Mars Sep 16, and make like a sphinx with him! Half Lion, half Woman, the Sphinx embodies the Leo/Virgo signs – Leo the Lion, Virgo the Virgin. There is much to talk about and you can be assured that champion, hero Mars will quickly do his very best to help Mercury with the work! Mercury will be gaining momentum after the turn, moves right along, passing Mars, on to the next project.

Mars newly at 0 Virgo is conjunct fixed star Regulus, so you can expect his contribution to be elegant and maximum! Regulus used to be in Leo. It was one of the four Persian Royal Stars, the watcher of the South, the King! Now in Virgo, I dub him/her the Healing Goddess! Maybe Chiron is her planet. Mars wants to move things right along, see to the finer points of things, and may get the job done in record time! He is quite capable of giving the boot to the next level! Quick to analyze, he gives you a shove it he thinks you can make it! He encourages, is right to the point. He inspires you instantly! In Virgo he gets you exercising perfectly per your conditions! Oxygen gets to your brain and fuels your next choice! He gets you charged then passes you right by, on his way to the next spiritual soldier that needs a boost!

Jupiter and Saturn made their sextile but are still plenty close and active. Lots of plans made and a ton getting done! Jupiter is finishing last days in Libra. Social relationships are being made, groomed, extended into greater territories. We are committing to distant travels and tours, and superior education. Publishing our works is important, probably timely. Political ethics and justice are getting a workout from grassroots to corporate levels. See more!

Sep 23 and 27 are the next aspects coming, Jupiter inconjunct Chiron and opposite Uranus! These will be the third and final aspects of their sets of three each. As Jupiter moves in closer, the aspects will be in the traditional ranges thought to have effect. After them, Saturn will be squaring Chiron Nov 2.

Besides being about Virgo and Pisces, this Full Moon is a lot about Mercury. They are tied together because Mercury rules Virgo and the retrograde ties to the Moons! As one teacher said, ‘Where your attention goes, your energy flows.’ Straight ahead!

New Moon! Five Planets in Virgo!
New Moon & Jupiter Aspecting Chiron & Uranus!

Tuesday September 19, at 10:30 PM Pacific, 27 Virgo 27!

Virgo 2017 New Crescent Moon Cleaning Stars

Virgo angels are often at work making our lives brighter, even at New Moon time! 

As is said above, the Virgo Full and New Moons are finishing the Mercury Retrograde Cycle! Both Leo New Moons were linked to the Mercury Retrograde cycle, and both the Virgo New and Full Moons are as well! The SAME DAY of our New Moon at 27 Virgo, the Mercury Retrograde Cycle finishes at 11 Virgo! 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!

Mercury rules communications – speaking, listening. The four moons connected with Mercury’s Retrograde cycle have each brought a special perception. It is fitting the whole cycle matures, finishes in Virgo, Mercury’s second sign! Virgo organizes our thoughts, fits the puzzle pieces together, expedites the project to a polished and quality result!

4 Occultations! There is a unique lead in energy preparing this New Moon. Pacific time, Sep 17 Venus at 27 Leo, the star Regulus at 0 Virgo, Sep 18 Mars at 8 Virgo and Mercury at 10 Virgo are occulted! Occultations are mini eclipses! The Moon and those planets are perfectly lined up! That’s three inner planets in two days. Channels are open from and to those three planets! There is a purity. Messages are clear and potent! Venus of values and grace, star Regulus the heart of the constellation of Leo the Lion and at the crossroad of Leo/VIrgo – the Sphinx (half Lion, half Woman), Mars the leader and champion, Mercury of communications – transmit and listen! The 19th Venus enters Virgo just in time for the New Moon!

The occultations occur in less than 24-hours time. This will be the first time since March 5, 2008, that three planets have been occulted by the moon in less than one day. The next time won’t be until July 24, 2036.

With this New Moon having FIVE planets, a stellium, in Virgo, including Mercury in his own sign Virgo, we can safely say things will get done, and well! Virgo is a common sense Earth sign, a hard worker, last one to leave the office!

Moon with Sun is a potent combination. Sun carries the Light, Moon gives support and give the unconditional love we need! Virgo is worker, at all kinds of enterprises that take care of us on a daily basis. Moon thinks that is terrific. She superlatively minds our nutrition, often has natural remedies, information that saves the day.

Virgo is purity, cleanliness of mind, body and location! She nags us, but the aim is to establish and maintain clear thinking. She adjusts our diet to prevent ailments, cheaper than a doctor, LOL! She detoxes us, and builds better health than ever before! She clears clutter that blocks and burdens us, organizes our lives for clear and streamlined action. Go, Virgo!

Venus just arrived, is at 0 degrees. She loves the work and wants it to be beautiful, valuable and lovingly composed! Might be a quilt or the subtle tints of the paint on the wall in the showroom! Patterns stir our consciousness, labyrinths lead to the center of the world! We relax in the loveliest flower gardens, grow the most healthy herbs and foods. Very sweet caregiver.

Mars in Virgo gives good measure for time spent! He works best independently. Definitely an Earth mover! Outdoors might be his forte. In construction put him to work on woodworking, the cabinets installations and clean up! He will be the best delivery person you ever had! He may volunteer to take food to home bound people and elders.

Moon naturally takes on the home nurturing role; Sun leads us to extend that service to our community! Virgos are very clever Souls and much sought after. There have always been tenders and nannies, butlers, caregivers and nurses and accountants. We couldn’t live without them! Well we could, but things are more better with them! They have specific amazing skills! They are downright excellent at garden care and landscaping. Botanic gardens…. Veterinary.

Mars and Mercury are opposite Neptune. He’s been waiting for them. Mercury and Neptune are each in their own signs. They are strongly placed. Neptune the dreamer and savior, offers insights to spiritual dilemmas, meditation to sooth the monkey mind. Mercury has just crossed Mars, and is supercharged! Mercury wants to learn everything at once, chat and do logic, give the news on these new discoveries! And Mercury discovers there is more than words. Empathy is important too. Mars, though generally forthright and furious, in Virgo is a bit more careful in it’s approach. Quiet tiptoes might be the way when with the sleeping Giant Neptune that sees all, especially if he is sleeping?! Rude questions and probing may provoke a chilled silence that is an unpredictable entity all its own. Oops. Ok, breathe. Gentle respect more likely due. Perhaps the technique and skill of the process is more important than the content of the encounter?

Mars and Mercury are trine Pluto in Capricorn! They all are Earth sign harmonious. Practical. Reasoning. Limits and laws. Mercury is forging ahead of Mars, first on the premises. Capricorn, the sign of elders and professionals, needs respect, and Pluto has a lot of private business. It may take a getting-to-know-you period before there is sharing. If you are offering services, you need to be bonded. If you are looking for a story be careful what you say. Mars might push a little harder than Mercury, but too much push can be felt to be suspicious. Pluto is always watching the back door. If it is an instant go ahead connection, you’re on! Ask your questions, offer innovative ideas, propose your price. If it is a personal relationship, while away the hours together, share secrets, do a project that fills your hearts!

The New Moon and Chiron have just made a T square with the Galactic Center! Squares can be a nuisance, blocks, but they also bring breakthroughs and building! Chiron is soulfully diligent seeking cures of body and mind, but in Pisces more of Spirit. Sometimes we get a wee bit lost, could be fears, addictions, cloudy vision, depleted dreamtime or dreams too vivid. At the point of the T Square,the Galactic Center is in Sagittarius, the place of the Pathfinder, Wayshower. It is a fire sign that lights the way, points the direction to take! It is a cheerful sign of hope and optimistic there is a fine future ahead! This perspective helps us break free from old things that have haunted us.

The New Moon is also within minutes of inconjunct Uranus in Aries! The gateway is is oblique, off to the side. it isn’t mainstream, could even be brushed aside as too weird or off putting, but Moon is is concerned for her territory, so takes a look. Moon is leery of such an upstart and for good reason! Uranus is the ChangeMaker, evolutionist, ahead of its time. The Moon protects culture and the home, sudden changes can be scary, upset the Virgo family routine. Moon is also curious. In her cycles she sees many things and may be bored, and in Virgo she is always amenable to a better way. So she may choose to watch from a safe distance at first.

The Sun is the planet in natural opposition to Uranus. Sun rules Leo, opposite sign to Aquarius, Uranus’ sign. Sun in Virgo may feel somewhat similar to the Moon in this instance. Virgos are not usually robust champions. They are more delicately put together. Like feathers in the weather vane, they sense shifts in the valence, minute disruptions of natural order. But they all may have a quick consult. Uranus in Aries instantaneously inspires. As Moon and Sun go by, they will be excited by the possibilities!

27 Virgo squares the Fixed Stars Polaris and Betelgeuse. Both are at 28 Gemini, but in very different locations in the sky! Polaris is the Pole Star, at the North Pole of Earth, the stars appearing to rotate around it. Its declination is +89. It has long been a guiding star to sailors and caravans. The planet, Uranus, was discovered one degree longitude away from this star! Polaris has been given mixed interpretations of high honors, misery and spiritual power. I would think which or how much of each, would depend on how it is situated in a given chart and the aspects at a given time. In this case, both Sun and Moon in a challenge aspect it could indicate Gemini/Virgo mind/body challenges, honors lost or hard won, a block in communications since Gemini and Virgo are Mercury’s two signs! A clear direction may not be immediately apparent or without some effort.

The same square exists with Betelgeuse, but Betelgeuse, declination only +7, is entirely a different character! Rather than at the Pole, Orion is located on the celestial equator and visible throughout the world! Polaris is at the tip of the tail of the Little Bear. Betelgeuse is in Orion’s right shoulder! Rather than the Guide, Betelgeuse is part of the hunter warrior! Great fortune and fame, especially military success, are potential, and it is also associated with calamities, danger, and violence! Warriors take their chances! Our New Moon in Virgo may contribute to strategies, might be a stealthy and clever hunter, but is rarely a warrior. Virgo may take care of the wounded, but would rather deal with Gemini’s commerce, offering business skills. Virgo may be grateful for Gemini’s news of new techniques and cures at the front, but will likely quietly incorporate it in it’s life on its own. Likely to be a meet, greet and move on. The Moon was on Betelgeuse when the 1st tower was struck on 9/11.

Moon’s North Node is retrograding to trine Saturn in Sagittarius. Moon’s nodes are thought to link to past lives. The South is what we did, the North is how we want to balance that. In Leo, it is calling for Heart and Light, radiant being, a creative Spirit! Saturn is thought of as the Reaper, what we sow is what we get, or it is what we are responsible for. Sometimes we owe from past lives. In the process, we work toward Dharma, the work of the Soul. Often I find people who are living their Saturn, doing the work it symbolizes, are the happiest! Moons Nodes and Saturn symbolize a harmony of Moon, Mother, and Saturn, Father/Time. Leo to Sagittarius can be inspiring performance, teaching, sharing the best we have to give!

There are two outer planet combinations that the New Moon opens gateways to and prepares us for.

  • First is the Sep 23 and 27 Jupiter inconjunct Chiron and opposite Uranus! They are the third and final aspects of their sets of three each. The new Moon is directly tied to all three! Jupiter is scouting for learning, healing. In Libra it wants to establish a friendly relationship, an open exchange. Jupiter may cheer Chiron in Pisces out of some of his wounds and worries. Chiron intuits Jupiter’s excesses and cheerfulness that covers any fears and failures. Ok to fail. Sometimes better that happened! This work is of great interest to Virgo who seeks natural balances, cures, and working relationships.
  • Opposite Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Libra is at some moments appalled by the indignity of seemingly aimless rushing about, yet is intrigued no end and finds himself in a new cosmic culture, dancing the dash! Haven’t had so much fun in ages, who cares what you look like?! Libra’s social meter may meet max trying to keep up with all those new acquaintances, but there is so much to learn and he doesn’t want to miss a thing! Extraordinary! They can make tremendous achievements together! Uranus has the genius and research; Libra knows the law and gets the patent!
  • Second is Saturn square Chiron, exact November 2. This is not considered an easy aspect by many. If Chiron is a/the wound, and Saturn slows healing down, it just isn’t fun. It can be your love life, your body, your work or business, school, attitude. For centuries we’ve largely ignored the wisdom of those among us who are still directly connected to ancestral ways of knowledge. If you haven’t paid serious attention before and some real work needs to be done, this time you may make a breakthrough and make a fresh start in the right direction. Find a real teacher/healer, maybe an indigenous shamanic healer. You may get over the fear of making a commitment or taking on something bigger than usual. You might be called on to do it on your own as others may have troubles of their own. Give them any help you can. You may be frustrated with limits, but perhaps they are keeping you safe for the time being. Time may feel like it is standing still. It teaches poise and patience. Just stay steady, stay with it.

Those of you who tinker with the numbers probably have noticed the Virgo New Moon at 27 Virgo 27! In astrology, the 2nd and 7th signs are Taurus and Libra, both Venus ruled. May Love and Beauty prevail! 2 + 7 is 9, as this New Moon completes the Mercury Retrograde cycle over a course of five lunar events!

As one lunar cycle ends, a new one begins. There is a maturity, ending, gratefulness, letting go, moving on. Natural. Take some quiet moments, have a circle gathering, rest, assess what’s up and in the wind. The foundation you have built will stand you in good stead for what’s to come. Sign by sign we follow the stars through the Year. Virgo is sign 6, halfway through, soon to tip the scale into Libra! Most honorable.

Blessed be ~

Happy Birthdays, Libras!

Libra 3 Planet Stellium John Trudell

John Trudell image by Matika Wilbur/facebook.com/Project562

In honor of the Dakota Access Pipeline protests, I choose John Trudell, 3 planet stellium in Libra, as our Libra Hero this year. As a Native thinker Trudell said: ‘I am a human, a member of a tribe, not a subject for corporate mining and exploitation. I don’t trust their corporate ‘democracy.’ We humans must think for ourselves. That’s what we need to give to the next generation.’ He died less than a year ago, December 8, 2015. His Spirit is still with us.

John had Neptune in Libra. You can bet he would be there to protect our precious waters and sacred land and animals and humans and children’s rights. No pipeline.

His Chiron is in Libra. He would have sought ways to heal the wounds of the land. John would have kept us updated with his broadcasts, made films to teach better ways and balance, write poetry to sway our hearts.

His Jupiter is in Libra and trine to his Aquarian Sun and Venus. He is for the people, a teacher of faith in change. He was multi gifted, a Santee Dakota Native American author, poet, actor, musician, and political activist.

Trudell served as the national chairman of the American Indian Movement from 1973 until 1979. He grew up in small towns near the Santee Sioux Reservation in northern Nebraska near the southeast corner of South Dakota. He lived in the very lands where the Sioux people still live.

In 1963 when 17 years old, Trudell dropped out of high school and left the Midwest, joining the US Navy. He served during the early years of the Vietnam War and stayed in the Navy until 1967.

Trudell had his share of suffering. His pregnant wife, three children and mother-in-law were killed in 1979 in a suspicious fire at the home of his parents-in-law on the Shoshone-Paiute Tribes Duck Valley Indian Reservation in Nevada. At the time of Marcheline Bertrand’s death in 2007, he was in relationship with her. She was Angelina Jolie’s mom. Marcheline was the executive producer of the documentary Trudell, shown at the Sundance Film Festival in 2005.

Those days were different, when Trudell was most active. There was ‘revolution’ in the air with protests of all kinds – financial, love vs war/violence/hate, racial, women’s rights. There was so much fear as old ways were overturned, people looked different, mores changed. Everyone was finding a way and it certainly wasn’t peaceful. Protesters were well intentioned and unsophisticated. Massive resistance seemed to require radical behavior, and often that was what it took. Mistakes were plentiful on all sides.

John Trudell was not a perfect person, but he did what he could as he could. Whatever needs changing in your life, stand up for it!

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017.

2016/17 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Libra!

Libra Let there be Peace on Earth Begin with Me

People remember how you treated them, they remember how you made them feel.

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Perfect! Mid degree Librans and Libra in general are in a challenge aspect with Capricorn. Libra is the sign before Scorpio, so by natural order, as trust develops in Libra partnerships, Scorpio feels safe to invest with them, both on a personal basis and financially. The challenge is when Libra teases their way between the Capricorn bricks to loosen the armor. Pluto can hang on until death do us part. That can be a good defense when protection is needed, or it can be a harsh and brittle punishment when stopping a flower from blooming. Stand as equals, hear each other out, give it time, come back to the table. Sometimes a bridge needs to be built, breath by breath, heart by heart.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Libra, a logical air sign and keen observer, sees the sensitivity of Neptune, like a canary in the mine. They are fascinated by the gift of intuition, confused by the magnitude of sorrows and the illusions of addiction. Libra usually stays clean. They don’t like losing their balance and not looking their best. They can arrange aid for the cause however, seek strong allies and advocates, lend legal assistance. Libras can illustrate equality, render a fair decision, a just compromise. They are often peacemakers in their own families at a young age.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Libra charmingly collaborates with Uranus. And it may be over tough matters like civil rights, to say nothing of animal rights, stopping extinction. It’s no accident that September 21 is International Peace Day. Uranus in Aries strives for independence, freedom of all beings. Libra seeks even more, a harmony of all beings. Traveling and education in other countries, on other continents, helps us see others ways that are quite different, often wise. Cultural diversity is invigorating, like hybridization often is! Remarkable friendships and partnerships may come.

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Libra may find themselves with marriage in mind, especially while Jupiter is in Libra, but this may not be the best for late Libras. It may be a better time for them to be careful of losses, attend to problems, even if they seem to be only small nagging at the back of your mind types. Pay attention, talk about it whether it is on your side or theirs. A gentle resolution could save the day down the road. Learn more about items that come your way. Learn more about negotiating and how to kindly show others how to do it too. All these skills will do when making business adjustments too. You can be a good mechanic, but do it with a lot of heart. Be the magnet.

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius in 2016. It retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees. Factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, the 2nd and 3rd times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof – their praise is well earned and means a lot. Saturn in Sagittarius is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Libra is not a physical laborer sign, but works hard building relationships. They have a sense of refinement, an uncanny ability to see each side of a matter, to bring Spirit into alignment! Agreements can always be made from necessity or from a win/lose point of view, but when there is an underlying respect and understanding, the sting of loss, and the joy of gain makes peace in the long term.

Sagittarius and Libra are a delightful combination. They love sharing stories of the places they have been. Libra is more anthropologically inclined, Sagittarius loves the adventure! Libra is great at film making, Sag is a good subject! Sag may at times just outspokenly blunder in, while Libra is checking for local customs. Libra teaches Sag a little finesse, and Sag says don’t be shy, just do it! Seeing the advantages of both, they can pass the lead back and forth. Great teamwork for an import/export business! Libra sets up the contracts, Saturn minds the muscle to gather the goods.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire in Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. With the Sun in Libra too, it’s double time to go out and meet some good companions, enjoy some of the fruits of your labor. Go to a museum, the finest restaurants, check out some courses at the university! Your students or teacher may be from an array of cultures. Libra is remarkable with design! See if there are jobs with a cause that are open for you. You may be just the talent they are looking for! Instead of only that morning walk, you might find yourself taking dance lessons! And who knows, you may meet a sweet mate! The Sun will conjunct Jupiter Sunday the 25th at one minute before Midnight Pacific time! From noon on that day, spend some special time on a little journey with friends or loved ones! Attend a special event!

 

Any of these outer planet factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologers for the whole picture!

Have a great new year!

Libra Poised at Fall Equinox!

Libra White Rose for Purity

Dried plants, fallen leaves floating in the wind, seeds on the ground, a time of letting go of summer’s brilliance. For some it is a cooler season, for others it is blankets of snow over earth’s bed, quietening and restful, time to catch up, social evenings by the fire. For many, it is also the crisp zing of intoxicating energy, skiing, skating, sledding, ice hockey!

White for snow and purity, perfection and the virtue of the balance required for all those winter sports! Since plants and light are dying, there are cooler days and longer nights, worries and sadness can set in, needing courage to face the demons of darkness. Time for the breathtaking White Tiger! In itself it strikes the balance between dark and light by its colors! It LIVES those colors! Plus those amazing blue eyes!

West, the place of the setting sun is Libra’s direction. Sunset is our natural gathering time of day after work is done. We are tired and enjoy chatting over dinner, sharing the day’s events. Summer’s bounty makes it possible to share with pleasure. The Chumash Indians saw it as the place the Souls crossed over after having walked the Milky Way as stars. It is a finishing time as well as being inspired by new ideas. We talk things over and brainstorm how we would have done it, done it differently. In a moment new partnerships are formed to do new ventures.

West is also the place of dusk and dark, dreams and visions! We can seed our dreams with images of our new projects and ideas before sleeping, then dream them into being during the night. We wake up knowing what to do!

The knowing of these cycles of growth then rest, are innate within us. Being reminded helps us remember the cycle continues endlessly, effortlessly, naturally. Sadness is part of it. Weep well for things you have lost. Let your tears grace the Earth. Each period of rest or winter is followed by new growth, or spring. Choose courage to face what’s ahead, and may it be joyous! Light white candles. Put white flowers on your table or where you work.

As  Deborah Byrd says: You can recognize these phases in the course of relationships, over a workday, in the progress of a play or novel, in the process of aging, while eating a meal, in the growth of a garden, in a scientific or political or business enterprise, while playing a game. All things sprout, bloom, reach completeness, become brittle and die, then rest. Then the cycle begins anew.

Where Virgo sorted the goods, Libra connects the people! We are doing this together. Extend a smile or a hand to to fellow Life Walkers. Give them a white rose of winter.

New Moon Portal!   – Venus Trine Neptune, Saturn T Square!

Full Hunter’s Moon!  – Jupiter Inconjunct Neptune, Sextile Saturn, Square Pluto!
x


New Moon Magical Portal!  – Venus Trine Neptune, Saturn T Square!

Friday Sep 30, 5:11 PM Pacific at 8 Libra 15 

New Moon Magical Portal! Stone Arch Night Sky Day Path Girl
Thank you to artist Jeremiah Morelli in Bavaria, the Soul who made this Portal for us.

New Moons are always an ending and beginning, a Moonless night, a bright day to come! In Libra, at Fall Equinox, it is a balance of dark and light, the poise of equal day and night – as above, so below. Like Sunset, it is the time of year we go from the light into the dark. It is an embracing poignant threshold, exultance for completion, inspiration to further ventures! With the Grace of the Past guiding us, let us walk forward together…transdimensional, effortless.

The most recent connection our New Moon made was with Jupiter, planet of abundance! Sun crossed Jupiter Sunday the 25th, and the Moon 9:54 AM New Moon morning! The Moon occulted/eclipsed Jupiter, so they were in perfect alignment, making the Moon/Jupiter fusion more potent. No guessing what the message was, it’s clear! Make special notes of prosperous ideas, blessed connections to follow up on, future plans you would enjoy, trips you might take, good advisors to see. Get do dates on your calendar!

Mars in Capricorn is about to square Jupiter, Oct 5, so there will be some stumbling around, different opinions on which choice to make, path to take. Mars in Capricorn can be pretty intimidating at times, and sound like the final authority, but Jupiter in Libra can sidestep on the dance floor! No straight answer might mean I’m thinking or it could mean no, but I don’t wanna tell you cuz you might get real mad. If I don’t show up for the appt that is usually my answer. If Jupiter is merely being a bit lazy and complacent, a good swift ‘kick’ may just be needed to get things going. But be careful. Capricorn may have the law on their side. Jupiter knows the lawyers. Wait for a better time to sign papers, go into partnership. Be ready to just let some things go. A better circumstance is likely to come along.

The New Moon first engages Venus in the next sign, semi sextile Scorpio. She, can be man or woman or a couple, leads with the most exquisite scents, a wave of her enchanting veil, wines that lower resistance, a personal connection may be made. Libras are always looking for good partners and Venus in Scorpio senses where good money can be made, strong lasting alliances forged. Libra likes socializing, taking the measure of various peoples and their offerings. In Scorpio Venus checks credit records, accountability, sources materials at the right price, holds confidentiality when needed.

Then Sun & Moon inconjunct Neptune in his own sign Pisces. He is retrograding back to make the meet. There may be confusion about where, when and with whom to meet, but there is an instinct and it may seem like a miracle, but the connection is made. Artistic insights, a dance that expresses far more than words, exotic foods from across the world are sweet benefits that open our hearts.

Venus and Neptune are linked by a lovely less than one degree trine! Venus is love, the deeper kind in Scorpio. Neptune is Soulmates and Soul love, compassion. In person, this can be the love of a lifetime. In Spirit it is timeless and rare. You may be charmed beyond understanding, changed beyond human conception. Venus and Neptune connect sweetly three times a year, but not always to your chart in such a way as to bring this about, but when it does, you will know it with no doubt. It can be truly magical. In other ways, it is an amazing artistic potential. Just as with Soulmates, there is a mystical union, an at one ment with the message the art expresses. There may be an exotic encounter with loved ones, extraordinary Beings, mermaids, avatars, angels.

Sun & Moon are three degrees from sextile Saturn in Sagittarius. So much can be accomplished with travelers, teachers, anthropologists, archaeologists, architects and geologists. The world has so much to offer. Be a speaker, coach, mentor. Seek one! Get terrific travel rates.

Saturn is squaring the Moon’s Nodes within a degree! Saturn and the nodes are considered Karmic, things of the past and future. Saturn often wants to hang on, but in Sagittarius is more willing to move on, seeing the perspective of a more long term choice. The South Node, considered to be the Past of the two nodes, is in Pisces. Neptune here at the South Node, increases the sensitivity to what is perceived. Pisces can be matters of the Soul, far more meaningful than tonight’s dinner or life as we know it today. We may find our visions pierced and leaky, not serving us as they used to. Light may seep into dark corners so we see a cost for not making change that we didn’t realize needed doing. Saturn in Sagittarius can be a wise leader, knowing what we must do to break the old bonds, lighten our burden, free us. The North Node is in Virgo, and God knows how they can clean up, put things together in a better order, heal what ails us. Sometimes they crack the whip and say get over it. Other times they are so tender as to make you weep. Either way, you are sorted.

Mercury in one of its signs, Virgo, is opposite Chiron in Pisces and inconjunct Uranus in Aries! Chiron and Uranus have been traveling with one another since 2008 and will be until 2021, thirteen years! Planet wide changes often take way more than 13 years, but they are making their contribution! See more. Healer Chiron and ChangeMaker Uranus have been making adjustments worldwide – some we never expected to see in this lifetime, others agonizingly slow and sad. At this New Moon, Mercury is the spokesperson. As in phrases like if you can’t name it you can’t claim it, if you can’t see it you can’t heal it, we need to get the Word out, whether by voice or video. Change is being speeded up by Internet knowledge, technology that shows what really happened. We are all learning how to do things in better ways, from daily life to what we think about the meaning things, the significance of change as indicator. Chiron in Pisces works with media and visions. Mercury presses for the data to back it up. Uranus collaborates even if it is one individual alone that stands far above the rest of their tribe. Mercury moves the message of one or many!

Steady in the Light and good luck on your journey.

Full Hunter’s Moon! – Jupiter Inconjunct Neptune, Sextile Saturn, Square Pluto!

Saturday October 15, 9:23 PM Pacific at 23 Aries 14 

Full Hunter's Moon Libra Poetry
From Haiku to a romantic Who-done-it, Libra was born to make beauty! As hunters found food for the winter’s store, Libras hunt relationships to share goods and companionship during the shorter darker days of time to come. Children conceived during this time are born in spring, an auspicious and joyful time to come into the world.

At a Libra Full Moon jot down your ideas quickly or record them as you walk through the park or write them for you lover in a moment of kindness or sweet regard. The Sun in Libra gives his light, the Moon in Aries gives his fiery Spirit leading to yet another adventure! Whether personal or political you will meet new people from afar or of very different backgrounds than your own. You may be well impressed by their point of view and feel a deep and instant gratitude! Opening our hearts and crossing the bridge, making a bridge, can bring lasting and greater prosperity.

Aries may be reactive and warlike, and Libra is the general’s strategist, anticipating the opponent’s moves. But with Uranus in Aries with the Moon, Moon may rather befriend than attack! They both like independence and freedom, so rather than separate, let’s respectfully unite, see each other as worthy contributors to a common cause we may agree on! Jupiter and Mercury in Libra, on the Sun’s side, are more thoughtful. Jupiter may be opinionated, and righteous, but can be appealed to by smart and clever Mercury, also in Libra, to consider collaboration, how opposites and difference can wisely fill needs not previously considered or met. Equality is on the table.

Jupiter and Mercury are engaging Saturn in a sextile. Saturn is still closely square the Moon’s Nodes though this aspect is fading as the Nodes retrograde away. And they are leaving Neptune behind too. Sensitive matters are being reorganized. Saturn has offered consideration of right timing, appropriate responsibilities, the wisdom of experience. Mercury has been thinking things through the last week or so, and seeking a balance of favors, making connections with brilliant partners.

Jupiter comes within a 5 degree range of Saturn Oct 15, this very day of our Full Moon! Many astrologers allow that range. Others, due to this aspect being a sextile only allow a 3 degree range. But if you feel it, it’s active for you! The three degree range starts Nov 2. This aspect is important because though it doesn’t become exact until Aug 27, and then only once, it is continuously close from now until March 6 when Jupiter retrogrades out of the 5 degree range. They don’t get that close again until July 29. They are quite close 3 1/2 months then another month, so a total of 4 1/2 months they travel closely together in the background. It lasts so long because Jupiter retrogrades Feb 5, 2017, moving very slowly. Their closest connection is a 2 day period when Jupiter is at 12.5 minutes of Saturn, very less than a degree December 28 and 29! This is just after Saturn trines Uranus December 24, Christmas Eve, and Jupiter opposes Uranus December 26! Please see the Holiday Four…or should that be Five?!

Jupiter may increase Saturn’s workload. Saturn may be inspired by Jupiter’s far reaching ideas and open a new branch. Business may increase through new partnerships. There may be some sad moments as Saturn realizes what they missed, what has held them back. Forgiveness may be given for mistaken thinking as the truth comes out. Time for healing. Health may get better with age, and respect and recognition given for long term well done work. Jupiter sees the benefits of Saturn’s bedrock solidarity. Your Dharma, your mission this life may be apparent, finally, or a profound step taken in its direction. Might go back to school! You have until the end of next August! Make it count!

Mercury is square Pluto today, and Jupiter doesn’t catch up to square Mars, but it surely does to Pluto, Nov 24, 2016, the first time of three. Mercury may have some things to say that will subtly pin your ears back. Go lightly, just listen, or walk away and think things over before saying something you may regret or they do. It will certainly have effect. Might be just what one of you needed to hear and was overdue to be spoken. Or, it may be a hurtful lie and you have to wait until the truth outs. Stay clean. Don’t make it worse. Document, keep the law on your side. Protect a loved one from harm as possible.

Jupiter square Pluto is a serious financial affair, and a possible illicit relationship. Some people will be have already shifted funds out of high risk ventures and not take them up at this time unless they are seasoned financial investors. Be cautious about forming new business partnerships unless each of you has a stack of favorable personal aspects. Check with your astrologer. Personal relationships formed at this time may have sad outcomes, financially or one of you cheats. You or your current partner may be tempted. Please work things out another way if you can.

On the other hand, Jupiter in Libra may break through a death grip blockage of a long standing Pluto in Capricorn matter no one had any hope for! Jupiter in Libra can wriggle and slither between the gaps, bridge the lacks, and what a surprise, a fabulous new deal is made. In relationships, age and beauty can work it out. Prenups a wise choice. It might be a perfect time to address cultural differences and parental customs and concerns. A lot of talking and getting to know each other may be required for their blessing. And it may take a year or more. Jupiter squares Pluto the second time March 30, and the third time August 4. Really, in family affairs, this is not a long time to wait to make peace about something so important. See your astrologer to plan your marriage date! See More

Jupiter is immanently inconjunct Neptune Oct 23! This first of three will be at 9 Libra 27. Inconjuncts are at either side of oppositions, so they are across but off. Jupiter usually won’t let them lie, and will seek out any adventure to the side. They don’t want to miss anything. And rightly so. It may seem like a detour or a waste of time, just a looksee, but often there is good reason for it to happen. We learn more about the guides along the main road, go back with new depth and perspective that makes the central purpose more powerful. OR. We may simply decide we like that side road better and there is a turn in the road we never dreamed was available. Being slightly askew fits our nature like a fine silk glove.

In this case it is the Neptune glove holding the trident! It may be the ship crossing the sea, playing magical music in the moonlight, the call of being with spiritual seekers at the ashram holding stillness and balance. We may be enchanted by art, artists, poets, a roadside shrine with profound words. Or it could be an Alice in Wonderland foray that seems nonsensical and we laugh and laugh just because if feels great to cut loose. Needed that! Gasp. Need to do that more often! Or, heck, we just got lost! Getting lost is a mission all its own and often brings lots of other questions as well! Nothing like a good getting lost in time, and space! It reminds us to slow down and see around corners! See More!
