Full Strawberry Moon! Building a Better World! 

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

Cancer 2018 Full Strawberry Moon

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cancer New Moon 2018 Sunset Crater Volcano

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

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

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


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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dark skies open us to unhindered gateways. Eclipses are exact lineups that let us channel directly! Let your dreams ripple, pull up your socks, get to work ~ be there when the miracles happen!

Pluto Conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at His South Node!

Pluto Ecliptic South Node Line of Nodes Diagram Capricorn

The Line of Nodes is the intersection between the orbital plane of Pluto (purple) and that of Earth (white). Because Pluto’s orbit is significantly inclined relative to the ecliptic plane, node crossings are rare, and because Pluto’s orbit is eccentric, they occur in 87 and 161 year intervals. Credit: Anne Verbiscer

Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic, north to south, at South Node, at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! That’s a stunner 248 year event few ever experience! Last time it crossed south to north September 4, 1930 – NASA says it was 1931. 1930 was when Clyde Tombaugh discovered Pluto! And it was in the time of the US Great Depression. The last time it crossed north to south, like it is now, was July 2, 1770, the day after Comet Lexell passed the closest to Earth than any other comet in recorded history! Pluto is known for extremes and financial events.

The Line of Nodes is the intersection of the plane of the Earth’s orbit and a planet’s orbit. If the planet is near one of these intersection points at the time of opposition, they were mid 2016, it is in near-perfect alignment with the Earth and Sun.

Astronomer Anne Verbiscer asks did the fact that objects tend to be brighter, sometimes exceptionally so when they are near opposition, also increase Tombaugh’s chances of making his famous discovery? She explains that Pluto was definitely brighter at that time due to the “opposition effect.” Sometimes it is a dramatic increase in reflected sunlight that occurs when a planet, moon, asteroid or comet is at opposition.

Opposition is every year when planets orbiting the sun beyond Earth’s orbit reach what astronomers call “opposition,” when they appear in the sky at the position opposite that of the sun. See more!

Ecliptic Sun's Path Ring of FireA Blip on the Ring of Fire!

Per Wiki ‘The ecliptic is the circular path on the celestial sphere that the Sun appears to follow over the course of a year.’ The term also refers to the plane of this path, which is coplanar with Earth’s orbit around the Sun. That’s why Pluto crossing the Ecliptic is so strongly linked with Earth! They are all lined up! Since Earth tilts, they would be even more lined up if this happened at one of the Equinoxes!

Oct 30, tiny yet powerful Pluto will be at 18 Capricorn 58, his South Node, descending! In this context, Pluto is entering his own Underworld for the next 161 years. This downunderness is a natural place for Pluto, Scorpio’s planet. It thrives in deep environs, places that could be dangerous, that challenge you to the core. They want to clean up messes, know what makes things tick, what to do at the thresholds of life and death. They carry the midwife’s basket and comfortably work at Hospice. They are pros at Wall Street and on the Market. They see the struggles, failures and successes and try their hand at it all too. Stealth and Wealth.

The Ecliptic doesn’t move; Pluto is the one that is moving, relative to it. Pluto is going to be immersed in the Trail of Light. From flaws to profound keen Healer, all is revealed. Pluto will stand in the Path of the Heart of Light, bathing in the greatest battery, Light charger, possible. What doesn’t work – poor health, a suffering or mean attitude, useless compulsions – may be burned away, offered up and released to the Solar winds. What’s left, what does work may stand clearly and be enhanced like a pure energy.

Relationships may be profoundly adjusted. More love, more sharing, more standing together for their lifes’ causes. They may keep a low profile, privacy a strong tool, but you will sense their combined formidable power. If it is time to dissolve, may it be done with dignity and respect.

If any planet can do it, Pluto can! The ability to transform, Dark to Light, is his profound business. The Phoenix rises from its own ashes. You may hardly recognize him when you see him next. Pluto is in Capricorn now. Pluto is destruction, clearing obstacles, detoxing, cleansing, resurrection! Capricorn is the builder, renovation. Together they restore and enhance with the best materials and devices current times have to offer! Sustainably. Capricorn is the Father, dedicated, responsible, condensing power, compounding the interest! Saturn is in Capricorn, his own sign, too, so these will be truly productive times for those who put in the effort. Intuition will be strong, work will be focused right at the critical junctures.

August 11th’s New Moon Solar Eclipse will be the closest lunar event by degree of 2018 preceding Pluto on the Ecliptic. It will be at 18 Leo 42, only minutes from the degree at the Ecliptic Oct 30 (18 Capricorn 58)! It will be what we astrologers call an inconjunct line-up, 150 degrees, one sign off from being opposite.

Inconjuncts invite us to take a look aside, pay attention to the perimeter, adjust our perceptions, expand our awareness. They can be scary, nagging, irritating, distracting, intriguing. We may find ourselves exploring that side road, taking the unexpected detour, sometimes never coming back! Life shifts as we acquire new information, get to know new peoples, or know the ones we know in a new way.

Capricorn has intentions and Pluto can be obsessed, together unyieldingly determined! But Leo is the sign of Light and Heart, a 5 Star+ general! Secret powers are revealed, elevated and revered. Leo is a generous sign, and Leo being our Sun’s sign, radiates this heart energy to all, whether their heart is open to it or not, doesn’t matter, the Sun shines. We are warmed in places where fear held us cold; we relax and find ourselves able in ways we thought were lost or would never be attained.

Mars and Mercury are both Retrograde in our Solar Eclipse chart! They are turning the soil so to speak! Mars is at 0 AQ leaving square Uranus, about to return to Capricorn. The amazing inspiration of Uranus, AQ’s planet, and being in genius AQ, is right between our eyes, and Capricorn will build it! Mercury is at 14 Leo leaving square Jupiter in Scorpio. He is bold and bright and big minded with a huge smile! He sniffed out some terrific ideas and is taking them home. Seeds in the planter!

Be present with open hearted Spirit August 11. A New Moon brings new beginnings. A Solar Eclipse is a direct lineup of Moon and Sun, access to our Light Bearer, this time potently in his own sign! Hold your gathering Circles as close to the exact time as possible. They are like a magnet and increase energy more than 10 fold! It is at 2:58 AM Pacific time. Perhaps hold Circle the evening before to protect, enhance the Gateway, or if you are a solitary practitioner, hold Light before, at the Threshold, and after the exact time. Those of you who hold Light at this time, with intention, will be holding bright energy from then through Oct 30! LightKeepers are needed.

Oct 30 the SUN will be at 7 Scorpio 30 along the Ecliptic. Scorpio is Pluto’s Sign! The Sun is ON! It’s a merger of Dark and Light, both valuable in their own way. Through this kindred energy, Pluto, on the Sun’s circle, will have more courage and ability to be resonant because Light isn’t his natural element. Take some time that day to feel the effects of Light on Light, Light on Dark.

Will Pluto leave its scent as it crosses through this energy plane/portal? It must! Will we feel it when the Sun conjuncts the Oct 30 Capricorn point Jan 9, 2019, and when Sun next makes his annual conjunction with Pluto two days later Jan 11, 2019 at 20 Capricorn 56? And what about Oct 30, 2019?! Let’s sit with it and see what we get! Pluto moves only 3 degrees a year, slowly. This degree is still very close. Take some time these important dates to feel what Pluto, Sun, and Scorpio are channeling to us. Light itself may need cleansing, recharging. The Dark may need purifying so it may function cleanly to be a protective shield or be a safe place to have deep thought and alternate perception. Dawn and Dusk become more special, times of blending their forces.

Yes, Oct 30 is months away (this written Feb 16, 2018), but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or Wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Stay with working the solutions, steady in the Light.

Many astrologers think this is a several years long event. I agree. You don’t wake up that day and say, wow, I can feel Pluto at the Ecliptic and its over! It’s a process, a sense of it, a learning how to transform Dark to Light, merge Dark and Light work with those mediums. Not a 5 minute affair. You need to practice in all kinds of circumstances, become seasoned. It’s not just for yourself but to be that healer/teacher for others as well.

The Fixed Star Deneb is at 19 Capricorn 48 in the constellation Aquila, the Eagle! It is less than 1 degree of Pluto’s South Node. The Eagle is the high flyer of Scorpio, Pluto’s sign. Raise your vision, see the new links. Let go of old weight, spiritual and otherwise, that no longer serves; fly your good powers clean and well. Use your keen perception to heal and serve right on target.

Those of you with factors in your chart from 5 to 10 degrees, especially in Scorpio or 16 to 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, will have the most potent contact. Take some time out, alone or in the power of a Circle, to receive. The rest of us are counting on you to give us the keys we need to carry that Light forward for a long time to come. I imagine it may take some time to put it into perfect words and working order. That’s ok, but don’t take too long, the planet needs the info soonest. Even if you are awkward at first, some will understand immediately. They too will be guided, but we need you to get us started! Plant those StarSeeds where they will count!

Anne Verbiscer says ‘We won’t know just how bright Pluto can get until 2018, but you can be sure we will be watching to find out!’ There won’t be another crossing until December 11, 2178!

The Pluto/Scorpio Phoenix rises and the Phoenix sets!

Full Pink Moon!

Yod Saturn/Venus + Moon’s Nodes Square Full Moon! Jupiter trine Neptune!

Sunday April 29 at 5:58 PM Pacific, 9 Scorpio/Taurus 39

Stunning Full Pink Moon Crested Butte CO by Stan Rose

Full Moon rising over East Fork, Crested Butte, San Juan Mountains, Colorado by Stan Rose

This is the last Moon before Uranus changes signs, from Aries into its first taste of Taurus in 84 years! The sign change first happens just after the New Moon May 15!

This Full Moon has the Moon in Scorpio. Some say the Moon in Scorpio delves deep into past lives, the meaning of life and death, obsessing and purging, mortification and soul retrieval, subsequent healing. It looks into the crevices, or is that crevasses, of the convolutions of our relationships, financial innuendos, secrets. The fire at the base of the spine, the Kundalini, may be ignited! The Phoenix rises. If you weren’t powerful before, you will be now! Not for the faint of heart!

The Sun in Taurus leads out of darkness into the Light, steady and trustworthy, a safe way and place to go. The wings of the newborn butterfly emerge, are spread wide to dry, gather strength after the transition. They are folded and unfolded, flexing for their ascension. This seems especially true with Uranus, the planet of flight, at the super potent last degree of Aries, the sign of ignition! We need that grounding and centering Taurus gives us. We will need to be strong and dependable to stabilize the coming changes.

Saturn, in its own sign Capricorn, is at the same degree as the Full Moon! Saturn wants a reliable structure, a strong boundary, to keep safe within, to protect from without. It sextiles the Moon, lending business opportunities. It trines the Sun, building a timely reputation of personal achievement. Things get done and on time. This combination is not impetuous, can bring about long thought out mergers and marriages, successful parenting.

Saturn is also Yod, at an ‘opposite’ point between Venus and the North Node. Both Venus and the Node are moving toward Saturn’s degree. Venus is in Gemini being glib or glissando! She shares the gossip and valuable data, introduces you to people who have just the information you need, and spreads the word about what an asset you are! The blog needs updating and some attention. The North Node can be a shy point in Leo, but rather than being so concerned what others think, it’s time to express your unique gift, what’s always been in your heart to do! Step into the light! Shake hands, let that Venus breath of beauty, those sweet words, give you the courage. Shake loose, stand tall!

The Full Moon crosses the Moon’s Node axis at right angles, making a fixed Grand Square! Fixed squares are known to have long standing issues hard to change. Taurus is mine; Scorpio is ours, but I will have some on the side, a personal account as well. Aquarius is the ‘past’ South Node. I had many friends and associates and depend on them, perhaps too much. The Leo North Node calls us to ‘be’ ourselves, in full radiant primal glory, to take our personal place in the Sun. This can be the leader of the tribe! The angle signs have their challenges. Taurus likes peace and quiet while Leo has the rock band rattling the windows! Leo wants you to adore them and show you off; Scorpio admires his investment, but prefers his secrets. Scorpio often works privately behind the scenes, while Aquarius is either the free loner never captured, or stirs up the masses into waves of collective change, no holds barred! Aquarius is electrification, the Awakener personified, genius ahead of its time; Taurus likes the comfort and beauty of our Earth, contemplation through saturation. From the Buddha at the roadside shrine to the Captain of the Rocket! Having mutual purpose is the key to putting all these talents together.

Mars conjuncted, was with Pluto in Capricorn the 26th. He quickly poked around in Pluto’s stockpile and dump, looked at his reserves, assessed the assets, offered some suggestions. Pluto warned him when he got too close to the boundaries, but listened to this upstart intruder who dared. Mars knew he could get away, but knew he would chance it. Pluto has traps set, security, but some traps are more of the psyche. That’s a whole nother story. Mars learned some tricks and even more clever ways to use resources, how to build from decay and destruction, release what has been bound. He carries this all forward. Much needed.

Jupiter in Scorpio was sextile Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, mid April, and that episode is still with us. There are clever uses of funds and the power to rebuild. Capricorn is a renowned renovator, and Pluto reuses materials, knows how to expedite and find the best deals to cut costs yet do a right job. Negotiations were thoroughly considered. Matters of great wealth may be at stake. Some relationships were or will be, as fall out, abruptly ended. Other long term relationships will be forged and be lucrative financially, rewarding personally. Jupiter will sextile Pluto the third and last time Sep 12.

Jupiter is retrograde, on it’s way back to trine Neptune in Pisces the second time May 25! They will be in close aspect until the third and last aspect Aug 19. Jupiter is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking often go with the territory. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with Neptune in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may take a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time. See more, plan ahead, take the chance!

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

Right now, strengthen, work together, build, be mindful.

NEW MOON!

URANUS Sign Change, Double Earth Stelliums! Jupiter trine Neptune!

Tuesday May 15 at 4:48 AM Pacific, 24 Taurus 36

Taurus 2018 New Moon Uranus into Taurus

With 4 planets in Taurus, 3 in Capricorn, that’s 7 in EARTH signs, this is a super grounded practical New Moon. Sit with it. Even Uranus, the planet of space is coming in for a landing!

Notice that 00 Taurus 00 in the New Moon chart below! Today Uranus, the God of the Heavens, the planet of Aquarius, goes into Taurus, the sign of Earth herself, on our Taurus New Moon! It takes this planet 84 years to circle the zodiac, so this New Moon is most uniquely a time of special new beginnings. Yes, it was 1934 when Uranus last started in Taurus, but all the other planets have changed signs and positions since then! 84 years ago this moment was the same but very different.

Since then we have been through WWII – the bomb and the Holocaust, the United Nations. Vietnam, the Kennedy assassination. We put a man on the Moon and explore the stars. Socially we can now talk about sex, money, death, food and health awareness, women’s rights, child molestation and abuse, animal rights, civil rights, gay marriage and guns openly. We got television, computers, the Internet, cell phones, film to digital cameras! And now, planetary climate change. That’s a lot in 84 years. We are not the same.

Uranus, Mercury and the Moon and Sun are all in Taurus emphasizing Uranus’s new sign!! Mercury can feel Uranus right behind him, etheric and electric! These two powerhouses of intellect have a lot to think and talk about. Uranus is considered genius, way ahead of his time, sometimes a little incoherent. Mercury is famous for connecting the dots, can spin and spit out yarns and info as fast as he can make his lips move, even in Taurus! He just talks about Taurus subjects instead of other info! Mercury gets the honors, is the first to greet this great and wild one! What we thought is not and no longer, now off the charts of ordinary conception. Keep your Spirit open and upward seeking!

Mercury in Taurus, the thinker/communicator is key. He just semi sextiled Chiron, newly in Aries, is excited about new remedies, businesses, relationships. Mercury trined Lilith, a harmony of intention to build new long lasting vessels dedicated to uphold divine law, create a working world order. Elders will guide and protect. Next, Mercury will trine Saturn, the one in charge, Father Time. Surrender as well as profound integrity and knowing are intrinsic components to their success. Last in the sequence is the square, challenge to the Moon’s Nodes, spanning Aquarius to Leo. Taurus aims to settle them down. Leo’s finery and Aquarius’s exotic untouchability, can put them off the charts. Taurus waits for their attention, eases them to put those factors to good use, and simplifies the how tos. Quite a chain of events, a complicated network.

The New Moon is last in Taurus. Cows and bulls are meant to take their time pondering. They know how to conserve energy. Others are running around while they are watching, chewing their cuds, working through those 4 part stomachs! They are digesting what they see, casting it in the best situation possible. They see if it stands the test of time, measure its value, get the most gain for the least effort. They often see what others don’t and waste little time in the long run. Tauruses can be gentle, comforting and uplifting. They praise us in truth and it means a lot coming from them. They are remarkably strong in temperament and physically. Business may start small, but it grows and grows through the years. They are loyal mates.

The Moon in Taurus makes a lovely home. Natural surroundings, breezes through the windows, flowers wafting their scents, veggies in the garden. She hugs the children, is herbalist to bruises and illnesses. She’s aware of investment cycles, often doing well financially, gives insightful advice. She may have a cosmetics shop, boutique of comfortable clothes, or a specialty foods, bakery, cheeses, flowers or natural foods market.

Sun in Taurus is a champion! He may be the one behind these businesses! He might specialize in native landscapes, run the nursery, drive the tractor at the farm or do urban digging for power and underground lines. He may have a knack for placing homes in harmony with the land, designing with a sustainable flair. Taurus has a 6th sense for textures, matching people with their best place. He has the strength to be a superb caterer using healthy foods. Or what about that restaurant?! Natural cosmetics. Strength to be a bodybuilder! Or to hold peace at the ashram or sanctuary?

Moon offers Sun her support. She makes him know how much she values him. He is her Light, and makes her know how much he appreciates her. She is the Emerald. The bond is beyond words. Affection. Venus, Taurus’s planet, is one sign away. As we talked about Mercury in Taurus, Venus, Taurus’s planet, is in Gemini, Mercury’s sign. When planets are in each other’s signs this way, it is called Mutual Reception. Each is blessed with a commonality of understanding, strengthened, and can be read in each other’s places in the chart. This New Moon linked with Venus, specifically picks up the entire Mercury network as well even though the degrees don’t connect!

Venus, though in Gemini, being Taurus’s planet, has a natural link to the New Moon. She blesses them with her words. She spreads the good word, supplies valuable feedback from the ‘hood, heals rifts. The Mercury links take that word to other collaborative businesses, women of power, opens gates to new options.

Taurus is the first of the Earth signs, feeds and shelters the tribe. Capricorn is the last Earth sign, attaining the heights! Saturn, Capricorn’s own planet is in Capricorn making his mark, collecting the land use fees and profits turning them back into building for the future – he’s already feeling the plans Jupiter has for the dreams and visions of Neptune! He wants to make them happen. Pluto is now in the last third of Capricorn, researching methods for healing problems of aging, cementing special behind the scenes alliances, securing funding. No sense rebuilding the old. He too is on board with creating what’s new and better, insightful and valuable. Capricorn is the master of long term goals and works hard to get there.

Mars sits at 29 Capricorn, the last degree, feeling the urgency to complete the necessities! At base is organizing so the project can continue effectively. He is a tad reluctant, after all he has worked for, since he senses all hell is going to break loose when he goes into Aquarius, Uranus’s unpredictable sign! Granted, it will not be so careful as Capricorn, but will be crazy creative! Ok, just be as ready as you can be. New techniques will turn the tables and the project will morph into something more advanced. The speed will be exhilarating!

As with the April 29 Full Moon above, Jupiter in Scorpio was sextile Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, mid April, and that episode is still with us. There are clever uses of funds and the power to rebuild. Capricorn is a renowned renovator, and Pluto reuses materials, knows how to expedite and find the best deals to cut costs yet do a right job. Negotiations were thoroughly considered. Matters of great wealth may be at stake. Some relationships were or will be, as fall out, abruptly ended. Other long term relationships will be forged and be lucrative financially, rewarding personally. Jupiter will sextile Pluto the third and last time Sep 12.

Jupiter is retrograde, now on it’s way back to trine Neptune in Pisces the second time May 25! They will be in close aspect until the third and last aspect Aug 19. Jupiter is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking often go with the territory. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with Neptune in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may take a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time. See more, plan ahead, take the chance!

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

Taurus makes us so aware of our bodies. Take good care of yours, use it with infinite respect.

Second Full Moon in March, Blue Moon!
Mars/Saturn, Jupiter sextile Pluto, Chiron 29 Pisces/Sheat!

Saturday Mar 31 at 5:37 AM Pacific, 10 Libra/Aries 45

Full Moon Raven by Girard

Wanderer’s Moon by Francois Girard. The magical Raven, a deeply mythic creature full of mystery and playful surprise! The knot work is inspired by Viking art.

Some call the second Full Moon in March the Crow Moon. It’s a Moon of deeper seeking. Among our relationships balance and unions are sought. In our Spirits, we master the realms above and below, air and earth, sunrise and sunset, firelight and darkness.

Moon in Libra is quite interested in these balances. We are looking for a working agreement, acceptance of differences – personal and cultural, each offering their own special talent. Beauty and comfort count. A lovely home matters as a gathering place for family and friends. Community law guides and keeps us safe. Women strive for equality. Libra enjoys political skirmishes as long as it is a fair fight.

Libra is ruled by Venus, who has just moved into her other sign Taurus. Taurus is steady, sometimes stubborn, generally patiently kind and supportive, even financially. There is a concern for being naturally healthy with radiant beauty like nature’s flowers. Good values are stabilized. Touch and comfort are given as possible. Massage and yoga make sense. As Venus goes by, appreciating our efforts, people relax and feel safe to listen to each other, find the good in what they each have to say.

Sun/Mercury in Aries, are on fire, independent, fearless leaders of heart and mind! Aries will take up Libra’s battle as a front line soldier of Light! Sun is teacher, generous, bold, in Aries, fresh! Mercury speaks quickly and to the point, in Aries often not mincing words. The invitation to do new, more and better is cast upon the wind and other people of courage respond to the call. Moon in Libra, the old pro, courts their intelligence, buffers and blends outspoken opinions, pulls the best ideas together, goes back and forth to get a working team, escorts them to the next level! The project takes off!

At various previous times they all were square Mars and Saturn in Capricorn. With Mars in Cap there is rewarding efficiency, getting the job done early and well. With Saturn there is restraint, consideration of the rules, cultural needs and respect, matters of age and wisdom. Now that Moon/Sun & Mercury are past this pair, they are off to meet new people, work on their own with constraints they have accepted, or with others as makes sense. They are more focused, mindful of priorities and the time it really takes. They keep the long term in mind.

51 Year CHIRON SIGN CHANGE  April 17, 2 days after the New Moon! Chiron is holding at 29 Pisces, the last degree of the entire zodiac! It is mature. It is ending its course through Pisces. It is collecting, finalizing, concentrating, completing the foundation for its move into ARIES! Pisces is dreams, visions, addictions, art and music, the believer, divine dedication. The Blue Moon stirs us to stand to the Quest, negotiate channels of connections through people of courage, quality and integrity. As you can, leave addictions behind so our way is not weakened or hindered. See more about the Sign Change!

29 Pisces! Fixed star Scheat, is deep yellow star on the leg of the Winged Horse Pegasus. Manilus poetically said: “Pegasus the winged Horse will appear and gallop aloft in the heavens. It will bring forth people endowed with swiftness of movement and limbs alert to perform every task. One man will cause his horse to wheel round in caracoles, and proudly mounted on its back he will wage war from on high; horseman and soldier in one. Another will possess the ability to rob the racecourse of its true length such is his speed that he will seem to dissemble the movement of his feet and make the ground vanish before him. Who more swiftly could fly back from the ends of the earth as messenger or with light foot to the earth’s ends make his way?  He will also heal a horse’s wounds with the sap of common plants, and will know the herbs which bring aid to an animal’s limbs and those which grow for the use of man.”

Scheat, however is usually depicted differently. Robson said with Neptune (in Pisces): Prominent in inventive, occult or psychic matters, persecuted, peculiar domestic conditions, many accidents, danger of drowning. Ebertin more kindly says: Tied up with ‘malefics’, this could lead the native to lose his life in catastrophes, such as floods, shipwreck, mining accidents, airplane accidents, or maybe suicide. On the other hand, it is possible for a positive influence to emanate from Scheat, but only for some people, it can have a positive effect on their mental creativity, if these people are ready to receive such inflow.

TWO CONTINUE IN THE BACKGROUND!

1) Jupiter continues to sextile Pluto. It is the first aspect of 2018, set the tone for the year! They travel continuously from since before Jan 15 closely together, less than 3 degrees, for 3 months, to the retrograde aspect April 14. There are great hopes for prosperous careers and business, personal healing, preciously bonded relationships. Travel takes on deep meaning. The last sextile of the three is Sep 12. See more

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

Stay with working the solutions, steady in the Light.

NEW MOON – Jupiter/Pluto, Mercury Direct!
Uranus Conjunct, Double Stelliums, Chiron Sign Change, Galactic Center!

Sunday April 15 at 6:57 PM Pacific, 26 Aries 02

2018 Aries New Moon Mercury Direct, Jupiter Sextile Pluto

There is a certain element of Ascension to this New Moon. It embraces many new beginnings, invites us to reach for so much more.

New Moons are often thought to be quiet. For water and earth signs that might be true, but not this one! Aries is the roman candle of the zodiac! They might burn bright and take a break, but they are back up soon again, lighting the night! Yes it may be dark out there, but all the better to see the contrast of night and bright! And for this New Moon, conjunct Uranus, the planet of AQuarius and the stars in the heavens, it’s going to be wild, admirably unpredictable, sudden and astonishing, unprecedented! Unforgettable. Your friends need to be there! Too good to miss, and to help you if you need it!

Moon feels his/her way about avoiding danger, soothing the troops, keeping everyone hydrated. She is quick to intervene if things get too hot. Sun may be strutting about a bit, feeling his oats, proud of his prowess. Not everyone may agree and that could be a tad prickly. But he is big hearted and may sing the praises of others as well. He wants to lead and lift them up.

An Aquarian/Uranian type who blows in may be so interesting everyone forgets their own pet peeves, and are enthralled by this remarkable stranger among them. Aquarians are often humanitarian in spirit. Intelligent beyond mere words. They can be so over your head you think they are crazy, but they may just be way further along the track than we are. They are evolutionists, in a manner of thinking, time travelers, almost as if they are from other worlds. And who’s to say they aren’t?! They can be oddly detached observers, seems like they don’t care, yet everything means something or they wouldn’t be hanging out. It’s a limbo stasis, suspense, waiting to see what happens. Gives everyone some time to think before….. If the unusual happens, take your time if possible. Could be worth the pause.

This condition of awakening Uranus brings may help us see a broader palette.

  1. April 13-16 We have Double Stelliums at the NEW MOON! 3 Planets in Capricorn – Saturn, Mars and Pluto plus 4 planets in Aries – Mercury and Moon/ Sun/Uranus! Capricorn the old, traditional, and the new, new, new!
  2. April 17-19  Moon has left Aries, Chiron has entered Aries maintaining the 4 planet Aries stellium!
  3. April 14 is the 2nd Jupiter sextile Pluto that has been continuous since the first one in January! See more
  4. The 15th is this New Moon trine the Galactic Center and Aries MERCURY DIRECT! Mercury is holding an 8 day station April 11 to 18. That’s a tremendous absorption, anchoring and focus!
  5. April 17 Chiron changes signs from Pisces to ARIES! It will be in Aries with Uranus for 28 days!

The New Moon in Aries, Chiron’s sign change into Aries, all the planets in Aries, add up to NEW BEGINNINGS in several areas at once!
It’s quite an opportunity, may be confusing and overwhelming, and will happen with or without you! You might as well be there and contribute your part, take from it in a good way! You will be the better for it! Even if the beginning isn’t 100% perfect, you are on your way! Fresh independence sure feels good.

The New Moon at 26 degrees Aries trine the Galactic Center makes for even more marvelous changes! We may need to think bigger than ever before! It calls us to act in behalf of the greatest good we can barely imagine. Sometimes you don’t have to understand it, just do it. There are times to trust higher knowledge and your instincts. It’s bigger than we are, sees far beyond the possible future we imagine.

Mercury in Aries is square Saturn. There are going to be delays, possible censoring until this square is over the 25th. There could be doubt, fear, a lack of backup expertise. Otherwise aspects are favorable, so keep working the rest of the project. Make proposals when things are better established and fall into place now that Mercury will soon be moving forward again after its 8 day station. Breakthroughs.

The March 31 Full Moon had Chiron at 29 degrees too, and this is the last of it for now…later on there will be another period at 29 Pisces. So again:

51 Year CHIRON SIGN CHANGE April 17, 2 days after the New Moon! During the New Moon, Chiron is holding at 29 Pisces, the last degree of the entire zodiac! It is mature. It is ending its course through Pisces. It is collecting, finalizing, concentrating, completing the foundation for its move into ARIES! Pisces is dreams, visions, addictions, art and music, the believer, divine dedication. The Blue Moon stirs us to stand to the Quest, negotiate channels of connections through people of courage, quality and integrity. As you can, leave addictions behind so our way is not weakened or hindered.

29 Pisces! Fixed star Scheat, is deep yellow star on the leg of the Winged Horse Pegasus. Manilus poetically said: “Pegasus the winged Horse will appear and gallop aloft in the heavens. It will bring forth people endowed with swiftness of movement and limbs alert to perform every task. One man will cause his horse to wheel round in caracoles, and proudly mounted on its back he will wage war from on high; horseman and soldier in one. Another will possess the ability to rob the racecourse of its true length such is his speed that he will seem to dissemble the movement of his feet and make the ground vanish before him. Who more swiftly could fly back from the ends of the earth as messenger or with light foot to the earth’s ends make his way?  He will also heal a horse’s wounds with the sap of common plants, and will know the herbs which bring aid to an animal’s limbs and those which grow for the use of man.”

TWO CONTINUE IN THE BACKGROUND!

1) Jupiter now has sextiled Pluto April 14! As the first aspect of 2018, it set the tone for the year! They travel continuously from since before Jan 15 closely together, less than 3 degrees, for 3 months, to the retrograde aspect April 14. There are great hopes for prosperous careers and business, personal healing, preciously bonded relationships. Travel takes on deep meaning. The last sextile of the three is Sep 12. See more

Ms Venus at 19 Taurus is opposite the ‘critical’ zodiacal degree 19 Scorpio. That was considered a dangerous degree by oldtime astrologers. Yet people are born on that degree and live well. At this New Moon Venus is opposite Jupiter in Scorpio. Jupiter in Scorpio has the deepest longings, even extreme obsessions and a hella lot of charisma! Venus, in one of her own signs Taurus, has or wants a deep connection with her body, to be attractive no matter how she actually looks, is often possessive and loves furs, sensation, good foods, textures. She may have a melodious voice, a sweet way about her, an enchantress in her own right. Values are emphasized. The inner self seeks right relationship with our planet and peace. Jupiter seeks the Truth, power from deep within to be used in a good way, to heal, teach others how to heal. Venus brings the people in, Jupiter gets to work.

Venus is powerfully placed, grounding those who are fearful. She trines, the most favorable link, Pluto, Scorpio’s planet. There is steady depth of attention brought to bear witness. Pluto in Capricorn records the event in the archives, documents errors, corrections, progress, that others may always do better still.

Venus has left a great aspect with Mars, has admired his sensibility, he is so glad he pleased her, feels great, is rarin’ to go! Mars further ties the group together! He sextiles, opportunity, Jupiter, exact the 23rd. He conjuncts Pluto, exact the 26th! Mars is initiation, activation, ignition, leadership, action! Jupiter sees the big Path long term; Mars jumps right on it speeding up progress. Pluto in Capricorn is the internal steering committee. Mars in Capricorn speaks their language, demonstrates his proposal, corrections, updates, protocol, and they are willing to go along with him. All in all, productive with the least effort in the shortest time with the least expense!

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

With Uranus so strongly with our Aries New Moon, don’t miss the window, cut loose!

First Full Moon in March, Worm Moon!
5 Planets in Pisces – Trine Jupiter!  

Thursday Mar 1 at 4:51 PM Pacific, 11 Virgo Pisces 23! 

Pisces Mermaid Boat Lantern Full Moon

The Moon may be in Virgo, but the weight is with Pisces! There are 5 planets in Pisces to fuel the Magic that Virgo writes about!! Astonishing imagination and revelation!
  • Sun and Neptune, the Pisces planet, pair up at 11 & 13 degrees opposite the Moon! Sun and Neptune can live in a fantasy world that is sometimes more real than what we all think is the way the world is! It can be confused, addictions, living in Maya as some spiritualists call it – the illusion of money and matter versus heart and Soul. Or it can be profound meditation, psychic insight, God is your Guide. The Sun puts Light in the places we fear or have misunderstood. We hear sound that moves the Universe; we travel the mystic portals of time and beauty.Moon in Virgo keeps a clear mind, analyzes, tends us through difficult moments with her common sense. She makes our life more easy by removing messes and organizing what’s left in smooth order and easy access when we need it. Less goods is less work, less that nags at our subconscious. Virgo kindly documents as we go so we can track our progress. Super gods and goddesses! Thank you.Sun and Neptune are inconjunct the Moon’s North Node at 14 Leo. Sun is Leo’s planet, so there is a camaraderie. The Moon’s Nodes are always moving in the retrograde (backward) direction, so they are all also heading toward each other! Inconjuncts are magical in that they invite a side trip of some kind. They can be a bit wacky, off center! They can distract, even take us on a journey we are glad we didn’t miss, and sometimes we go off and never return.Sun and Neptune offer a spiritual course, creative art, images and music, oceanic, in depth fathomless living, never predictable! Leo offers the center stage crown of Light, big hearted Love, the colors of creation, being true to yourself! What a combination! Mix ’em up!
  • The Sun sextiled Saturn the 25th, and the Moon trined Saturn only hours before at 10:10 AM. Moon in Virgo, being an earth sign, and these ties with Saturn, Capricorn’s earth planet, have stabilized and prioritized the Pisces dream. It can be built, the core destination imprinted in renderings, and artful magic added! The 4th will be a key day when the Sun conjuncts Neptune, then Mercury conjuncts Venus, the contract made, the blessing secured, the mission on its way! Mercury goes into Aries the 5th, Venus the 6th, and it’s time for action!
  • Mercury and Venus pair up at 22 & 23 degrees with Chiron just beyond at 27. Mercury and Venus trine Jupiter. Mercury and Venus in Pisces notice the divine attributes and put them into words and images that can take our breath away. We ‘see’ with extraordinary insight and compassion is awakened. Their trine with Jupiter in Scorpio takes it to a deeper level. We walk in the secrets of our own or another’s underworld whether that be darkness or the power within. We see the important standing we all have within each other’s relationships.
  • Jupiter in turn trines Chiron though not exact until quite later in the year Nov 1! It is preparing a fertile outlook. Chiron in Pisces is particularly interested in the healing of chronic wounds of the Soul and Spirit. Those wounds can be so deep, from many lifetimes ago, indwelling, hard to name they are so invisibly a part of us. They seem like unfathomable addictions sometimes.Jupiter in Scorpio seeks the deepest darkest truths that hurt us so, have kept us buried. Jupiter can rename them and give us the perspective to understand, to safely release them. We are in good company and become ready to take the next steps, to travel on with our eyes uplifted.

THREE IN THE BACKGROUND! These will be with us through September, then two are finished and one remains until November.

1) Jupiter continues to sextile Pluto. It is the first aspect of 2018, set the tone for the year! They travel continuously from since before Jan 15 closely together, less than 3 degrees, for 3 months, to the retrograde aspect April 14. There are great hopes for prosperous careers and business, personal healing, preciously bonded relationships. Travel takes on deep meaning. The last sextile of the three is Sep 12. See more

Mars at 20 degrees Sagittarius is midpoint semi-sextile between them spurring them on! He takes Pluto’s powerful secrets and tells the story to Jupiter (in Pluto’s sign Scorpio), who lets it be known to the right parties so the good work may be fully funded. Through these links strong people are met, fulfilling partnerships made. Scorpio and Pluto want excellence of research about life and death. Make the project proposal.

2) Jupiter inconjunct Uranus is another in-the-background aspect. It won’t become exact until Nov 7, right after Jupiter trines Chiron Nov 1. Uranus retrogrades back into Aries Nov 6, as if to meet Jupiter exactly at this 29 degree location Nov 7, just before Jupiter jumps into its own sign Sagittarius Nov 8! Since Uranus is retrograde, they are both heading toward this aspect. It is virtually a glimpse as they both change signs! Uranus will remain in Aries, carrying the energy of this meeting until March 6, 2019. Jupiter will clearly immediately, have new things to do, but will be flavored by the encounter. Uranus in Aries is memorable! See more

  • The inconjunct occurs at 29 Scorpio/Aries. 29 is the last degree of a sign, considered the finality, the maturity, a critical passage point. The conclusion must be reached, there is sadness it is over, glad it is done, time to celebrate! If you miss it, the issue lingers in your consciousness, perhaps never able to be completed. On the other hand, perhaps it simply calls us to move on, take what we’ve got and check out further possibilities! Jupiter gets a boost from Uranus as it leaves Scorpio. Scorpio is called a fixed signs, more of a stabilizer. Uranus in Aries is no such thing! It is meant to create havoc and chaos, stir the pot to high momentum. Maybe this is just the charge Jupiter needs to thrust into his own sign, shake off the underworld shackles of Scorpio, loosen up and be ready for action. Scorpio is a powerful learning place of important things. Important to have impetus to teach them! Time to take the trip of a lifetime!
  • Uranus in Aries is not long on memory, but is quick on its feet! It will take the Jupiter in Scorpio values and immediately push the information forward! Uranus does have long vision for the planet and because of their extensive connections, will know perfectly where to place Jupiter’s pearls where they will do the most good. Mission accomplished!

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

Stay with working the solutions, steady in the Light.

St Patrick’s New Moon!

Four in Pisces at cross with the Galactic Center! Aries & Capricorn!

Saturday Mar 17 at 6:12 AM Pacific, 26 Pisces 53!

Pisces New Moon Milky Way Tasmania Bioluminescence

If there is no MoonLight, try bioluminescence under the Milky Way! Now that’s magic! South Arm Peninsula, Tasmania, Australia. May 18, 2015 by awesome photographer James Garlick

Mars is in his last hours of Sagittarius! The New Moon is 6:12 AM Pacific; Mars goes into Capricorn at 9:41 AM. From then until the Moon goes into Taurus March 19 at 6:07 PM Pacific, babies born will have their planets in only four signs – Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces and Aries! Their talents will be focused!

Our New Moon has 4 planets in Pisces! Neptune is in Pisces, his own sign! Sun and Moon are conjunct Chiron square the Galactic Center.

The Sun trined Jupiter the 13th and Moon trined Jupiter the night before at 11:11 PM Pacific. The Moon carries the Sun’s trine forward. Both have been charged by Jupiter with information to share, long distance visions in time and place to carry forward, finesse in the dreamtime. They in turn conjunct Chiron and transfuse him with their insights. It’s a time to heal the Spirit of subtle wounds, to learn and teach healing methods. Business will do better following delicate changes, and relationships will be more empathic.

Mars was at the Galactic Center March 10 and 11. Sun and Moon are right in the square to the Galactic Center at 26 Sagittarius and Chiron is just passed but is still quite close. Mars is the activator, quick to respond, a champion! The GC is a profound place of Light. It’s a channel we can query, or be directed by. It has a magnitude of enlightenment, carries great meaning, has a collective perspective. Sun and Moon will add their glory to what Mars is now carrying. Mars takes 2 years to circle, so it won’t be another 2 years before the next infusion. Chiron has already checked in during 2016, but is still in the same sign and still quite close. Squares are challenging. Perhaps there are times we resist or need to grow into the information itself. Likely. Finding good ways to speak of it can be difficult. The same breakthroughs we require others require too. When we find it challenging, that is often the time it’s most needed. Steady on.

Neptune in Pisces holds the anchor being in his own sign. He takes 168 years to complete his cycle, and he’s been in Pisces this time since 2012, now about half way through. He’s experienced. Sensitivity is building. These are times to ask questions, hear others. Neptune is master of the Dreamtime, loves fantasy, magicians, makes music and art, is the ruler of the ocean! Ships, harbors, waves, water sports, world imports and exports often travel the seas. Mists, veils, soften our vision. Spiritual, vision quests take us to far places.

Mercury and Venus were in Pisces with the Full Moon. In our New Moon they are in Aries! Mercury just semi-sextiled Neptune, Venus is about to! We need some words to bring Neptune’s dreams conscious. We need a scribe with a sweet way to make the words attractive and beautiful, valuable. Mercury and Venus in Aries are in the sign of the next step! They want to take point, give an exciting inspiring rendition! They want to get people started! Venus gives her blessing. Neptunians are often behind the scenes and need a champion! Mercury and Venus are pros at sales, marketing and advertising! Get that blog rolling! It’s news!

The Moon’s North Node is inconjunct Neptune and trine Mercury and Venus! In Leo, it is ready to profess what’s in its heart, let us know more of who he is! Neptune reveals another layer of our being, Mercury and Venus are perfectly placed to tell this story! Leo lights it up! It’s a subtle drama, that seemed to start from nothing, yet well put, touches many of our hearts.

There are three important background aspects going on! Please see above to see all about them! They will be with us through September, then two are finished and one remains until November.

So how is this for a St Patrick’s Saturday night party Moon?! You’re on! Pisces knows how to have fun, and Venus with Mercury, aaand Uranus, aren’t going to miss a moment! Venus in Aries loves a rip roaring good time! Mercury chats about everything with every person that arrives! If there wasn’t a party, they will start one and it may move from place to place! Uranus in Aries is wildly funny, crazy happy with all his good friends! In the US, Mars is already in Capricorn, the POLICE! So he either watches over you as your friend, or if you get too rowdy, oops, you may find yourself in the slammer. He would be the choice for the designated driver!

If you aren’t a partier, have your own kind of fun. Candles are good, music to soothe your Soul. Solitude is a blessing. And you can feel virtuous, smile. Either way, enjoy!

Roll with the tides. I’ll meet you at the shore…

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.

Monday Jan 1 at 6:24 PM Pacific, 11 Cancer/Capricorn 38! 

Capricorn 2018 New Year Full Wolf SuperMoon

Wolf Dog at SPIRIT RHYTHM & BONE!

How FIRST can you get?!

Happy New Year! First Full Moon, Wolf Moon, of January and 2018! And it is the closest – and thereby the largest Supermoon of 2018! This Full Moon is the second in a series of three successive full moon SuperMoons occurring on December 3, 2017, January 2 Capricorn/Cancer and Jan 31 Aquarius/Leo, 2018.

Moon is in her own sign Cancer, Neptune is in Pisces his own sign, and with Saturn newly in his own sign Capricorn, we have THREE planets in their own signs on New Year Day! Two of those are outer planets that hold long term meaning. They give us time to absorb, try out the many facets of their expertise in the sign they are in. Cancer is home, family, especially women and children, and our feelings, support for our wellbeing, cycles in our lives. Neptune is the Spiritual Master, maker of music, takes us to sea, heightens our senses. Saturn is the TaskMaster, dedicated to his work, gives financial support, rules Moon’s opposite sign. Traditionally Moon and Saturn, shelter and career, Mother and Father, are united in the cause to make a good way for the children.

The Full Moon lets us into 2018 gently with her exact aspects with Neptune in its own sign Pisces. Moon trines Neptune, each intuitive, each supportive in their own way. Moon sees motion, cycles and rhythms. Generally she operates current time, makes sure we are fed and comforted, sleep well and helps us with daily family interactions. Neptune is more concerned with the greater good of all beings, our Soul, life’s meaning, is an observer of trends and our place in them. Moon serves more locally. Neptune would have us sacrifice and serve globally. They both love art and their sensitivities blend the color beams and meanings until they become one. The strong citizens Cancer grows become citizens that lead our communities.

Sun in Capricorn sextiles Neptune. Capricorn is the living example of responsibility, Light in action, Love accomplished. Sun Lights the way and cheers our hearts, gives the strength to follow Neptune’s dreams. Capricorns collect the working materials to build what was invisible into a work place that inspires us to make dreams come true. Capricorns are dedicated believers when they ‘see’ the way that makes ultimate good sense. They know how to bring teams to the table, aligning all their talents so perfectly. It’s just a matter of time. Sun carries Neptune’s energy forward, Venus is nearing, so you can bet Neptune’s dream will be full of grace and brings irresistible beauty. Venus will conjunct Sun Jan 8, and Venus and Sun conjunct Pluto Jan 9! There will be a blessed culmination, a grateful ending, the deep wellsprings of a new beginning, Light in places that used to be dark!

Beautiful Grand Trine/Kite in Earth and Water signs! Moon leads the formation, pushing off beyond her usual territory. She is strong in her own sign, spurred by Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio, guided by Neptune in Pisces, also in his own sign! Water signs heal and help. Moon loves her children and ‘knows’ when there is trouble. Scorpio reads his partner and the deep hidden things that need healing in all of us, impurities we carry that impinge on all others that come in contact with us, helps us safely off load and detox. We see more clearly. Pisces helps us tune in to the greater banks of spiritual wisdom, to merge and develop compassion, raise our frequency to a more refined level, global consciousness.

On the daily basis, securing safe quarters, connecting with good schools is important to Cancers. Scorpios secure the funds we need and do tremendous healing that frees us to act on our dreams. Pisces throws mysteries our way to whet our thirst for exploration beyond the average expectations. Of course there is more! We dance at concerts, go to the art museums, maybe church on Sunday, meditate and do yoga. People keep doing fantastic things! Fascinating things seep into us and we change, sometimes without even realizing.

Now, I did say Moon has the lead. But there is a lot of weight on the other side with a four planet stellium in Capricorn, Saturn in power fresh in his own sign! The weight of the whole chart is on that side! Perhaps it’s the whole group leading the way! Capricorn can be like a dozer, pushing through stubborn obstacles! Saturn knows when people are fearful, stuck in their ways, because at one time or another they have been there themselves. They know just how to get them motivated. Respect first by inviting not ordering, dangling carrots next, rewards and payoffs that make a difference. And it doesn’t have to be money! In one spiritual system, Capricorn is the sign of Ceremonial Magic. It is a sacred ritual to care for people this way. Cancer hugs, feeds, cleans up some of the mess as the whole system moves forward.

And I will be radical. Maybe they take turns leading!?

Mercury has some great big ideas in Sagittarius, but square Chiron in Pisces, Chiron isn’t ready for them yet. So keep a file of ideas to be pursued later. Find ways to talk about them that doesn’t overwhelm the more gentle folk. Learn how to drizzle them out, leave a breadcrumb trail until they can catch up, getting them used to the bits and progression of your ideas as they come along. They will be plenty excited when they arrive, thinking they thought those things up themselves! Smile.

The powerful long term background aspect is Jupiter sextile Pluto exact the first time Jan 15, the day before the New Moon! They travel closely together FOUR months to the retrograde aspect April 14. This aspect is strongly placed in the SuperMoon chart. The Moon trines Mars then Jupiter Jan 1 & 2, then Mars carries the energy until it conjuncts Jupiter Jan 6 and sextiles Pluto Jan 8. Moon, powerful in her own sign Cancer, trine Jupiter in Scorpio could mean incredible support for important causes. Women and children may be leaders in the news and education changes. 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! New investments may be offered. Try them out. Invest more later if it goes well. Buy the home if you have the opportunity. 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.

In Scorpio Mars is perhaps a silent partner, but is deeply courageous and terrifically on spot in Scorpio. Moon intuitively calls him to arms in her behalf for all those in danger or need. In Scorpio he can be sinuous, weaving and surfacing then going down for another look, returning with the truth of the matter, discovering how to navigate in treacherous situations. He can plant seeds along the way that dissolve some problems, allow other seeds to grow well in spite of adverse circumstances. With Jupiter, and he and Jupiter in Pluto’s sign Scorpio, he may not say so, but he will offer hope for survival in a good way. Do your part.

Happy Full Moon and Happy New Year 2018!

First New Moon of 2018!
SIX Planets in Capricorn, Jupiter Sextile Pluto, Mars!

Tuesday Jan 16 at 6:17 PM Pacific, 26 Capricorn 54!

Capricorn Crescent Fairy Wings 2018 New Moon

The day before our Capricorn New Moon Jupiter sextiles Pluto, which could be wealth, super health, the mate of a lifetime! With SIX planets in Capricorn working hard for us – six ways to Sunday, including that Pluto, we will certainly be taking steps in those directions!

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. 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! 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

The Moon and Sun union is powerful! Moon goes through all the signs each cycle while the Sun is in that one sign. Moon brings facets of knowledge to Sun’s feet and he fills them with energy with all his Heart, lights them to brilliance! They can be gathered, brought to their full height, give their part wholly. At 26 Capricorn, one sign after the 26 Sagittarius Galactic Center, the insights from last month’s 26 Sagittarius New Moon are being worked into our daily lives.

Saturn, Capricorn’s own planet, starts the SIX planet Capricorn stellium! He sets the tone for integrity, responsibility, the ultimate practicality. He makes us aware of time and age, experience, has respect for wisdom. He is willing to work hard for core values, understands reality and necessity. Mercury had left him just days before, excited to carry the word about him, his principles, inspiring us to work as we can, the best we can, for what we believe in too.

  • Pluto is being sextiled by Jupiter as we have talked about above. Pluto in Capricorn can be pretty cool, even frozen, and perhaps he is glad to be warmed by optimistic Jupiter (Sagittarius’s planet) and the molten flow of his own sign, Scorpio’s underworld lava! Capricorn is looking at that mountaintop, but Pluto knows what lies below is the support the mountain needs. Hidden things, a mistaken premise, a weak link, can wreak havoc that may or may not be fixable. Better to prevent. Pluto was the God of the underworld. Listen to him, he’s seen it all.
  • Moon and Sun and Venus come next. Moon and Sun are only four degrees from the end of Capricorn. Sun has been in Cap 26 days now, knows what’s up and what is needed to complete the build. Moon in Capricorn brings her intuitive clarity, is Priestess of high womanhood, shepherds women and youngers to fulfill their missions. She and they take charge of what Sun can’t. Moon and Sun are making things whole – marrying male and female archetypes, allying young and old. Sun literally forges into new territory, higher dimensions, holds the Light in the darkest time of year. He mentors the way home.
  • At 26 degrees Moon and Sun are leaving Mars, Uranus and Chiron aspects behind, but carrying the knowledge forward. Mars inspires and has the courage to lead and act now! Uranus in Aries frees us from challenging old concepts, taildraggers, and teaches us how to unite disparate forces for common goals. Chiron asks for compassion, a stillness that we may see, for us to heal our addictions, to dream and believe. One day at a time. But Mars is right in with Uranus, then Chiron! 24, 24 and 25 degrees! Read on below….
  • Venus is mature in Capricorn, shifts out of Capricorn into Aquarius the next day. Moon catches up with her only 4 hours later, before she leaves. The two feminine planets merge to share caring and beauty, their special kind. There is a sweetness not always typical of Capricorn, and reality checks to keep them from falling for a wish rather than what is true. They know it is important to know that we humans are growing and rather than being perfect, it is the strength and quality of the striving that brings change and reward. They admire a working partner, gauge their choices by results.
  • The Sun doesn’t catch up with Venus until many signs later, Oct 26.

Mars has been traveling close with Jupiter since Dec 23, conjuncted Jupiter Jan 6. It has recently gained the foresight and farsightedness of Jupiter’s seeing, that Jupiter’s plans and picks stem from. And Jupiter’s optimism as well! Jupiter navigates successfully no matter what sign he is in! Though Mars is tremendously focused in Scorpio, even obsessed, there is still a broadening of attention, scanning for openings, quick ninja leaps through the eye of the needle!

Now at 24 Scorpio, Mars inconjunct Uranus at 24 Aries is a strange and amazing phenomenon. Things are off kilter and perfectly so. Mars is agile and enjoys the challenge! Mars is sure in Scorpio, but Uranus is swiftly unpredictable in Mars’s sign Aries! There is kinship, but it will not be a steady relationship. It may be long term, but random and erratic. It loosens the fibers of Mars in Scorpio and Mars surprises Uranus by magically appearing when no others could keep up! Mars may grab Uranus by the tail and hold him accountable – for a few moments, LOL!

Mars trines Chiron in Pisces. Chiron may hobble along at times, but Mars adroitly hurries him along, knowing Chiron likely has more ability than the old master lets on. Healing techniques and subtle business skills are shared. They can accomplish quite amazing feats together before others realize what has happened!

‘Fixed Stars’ is an old astrological term referring to stars rather than planets that move along the backdrop of the stars. Procyon in Canis Minor, the Puppy, is opposite our New Moon. Beware of growls, bites and slurpy kisses – maybe a hot temper, some violence! You have to know sequences to understand more of the meaning of stars. Bernadette Brady says: Procyon is the star that rises before the great Sirius, the Dog Star, the Shining One. It symbolizes rapid success but short-lived opportunities, for its bright rising light is quickly outshone by the rising of Sirius. Do business quickly, harvest your gains, move on! Opposite the New Moon may make you quite aware of this phenomena, especially if it triggers factors in your chart at 26.

Algol is at 26 Taurus trine the New Moon. Trines are good; Algol is thought of as bad, the baddest. If you are born at 26 Taurus, you may have some personal insights. The head of the Gorgon – hangings, losing your head. Depending on who and when someone is talking, Algol can be the dark, painful rage of the feminine – Lilith, sexuality. There can be intensity or ruthlessness, or an outpouring of creative work! As an earth sign, Capricorn is feminine though Saturnian, sometimes ruthless in business, could be an ardent artist leaving a valuable legacy of astonishing quantity! 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. Likely the Capricorn stellium in trine, astrology’s best aspect, will mitigate the dark side. Capricorns are generally not afraid of the dark.

This New Moon is a worthy leader of 2018’s New Moons! It holds the successful Jupiter sextile Pluto energy. SIX Planets in Capricorn gets the job done!!! Algol will ramp things up, surreptitiously or very up front! Blessed be, carry on!
