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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2018 Total Lunar Eclipse Blue Blood SuperMoon

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Happy SuperMoon Eclipse viewing!

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

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

Aquarius 2018 New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

New Moon!  Four Planets in Pisces, Mercury Cardinal T Square, Venus!

First New Moon of 2017 is Friday January 27, 4:07 PM Pacific at 8 Aquarius 15!

milky-way-over-arecibo-puerto-rico-by-ferdinand-arroyo

View larger  Milky Way over Arecibo, Puerto Rico by Ferdinand Arroyo. From its completion in 1963 until July 2016 Arecibo Observatory’s 1,000-foot (305-meter) radio telescope was the world’s largest single-aperture telescope.

Aquarius is a fantastic sign! Aquarians have amazing minds, from scrambled to genius, bodies unlike no other, have been to the wildest places, have friends beyond your ken. With both the Moon and Sun in the same place at the same moment it’s like high wires sizzling! Don’t expect the usual blather or time to stand still. It’s like twins with their own language, only these Beings are tuned in to the Galactic Center, the hub of our galaxy that connects with other galaxies! If your chart has factors at or very close to 8 degrees, you will be on the Grid with them and catch some of the Universal News! New Moons end one cycle, begin another. Aquarius makes it snappy!

The semi sextile with Neptune, in its own sign Pisces, will catch rare bits of script that will cast a spell over passages, some becoming illuminated like a lightning bolt, alive to the point of making you think you will leave your body! Other parts will be placed in the denial category to be sifted later by the subconscious into tolerable proportions. Insights and visions of the semi sextile, and the three other planets in Pisces, will be as vivid dreams that seem so real you don’t believe they didn’t happen, and when they do, you WILL remember!

Venus in Pisces

The preceding Jupiter inconjunct Chiron in Pisces of Dec 31 feathers out its new ideas about healing, spreads the word among colleagues and contacts, polishes the local artifacts, draws out beauty and charity. They are steadily in their inconjunct until they do it again exact on Valentine’s Day! Venus just went by Chiron in her gypsy veils, gave Chiron a sweet kiss. Been awhile since someone noticed him that way. So he is warmed and charmed, gave her a gift. She told Jupiter about it and he, in her sign Libra, thinks the information can be taught, maybe published!

As she squares Saturn, she makes him remember his square with Chiron Dec 28, what sorrows that may have brought, perhaps bittersweet breakthroughs too that still may need some repairs and integration. Venus may have doubts, moments of hesitation, need to comfort or lend a hand. She assures him there are dear Soulmates out there and his time will come. He assesses how well she is doing, reminds her of the long term goals and how important they are. She straightens, yet we know she will do it her way in Pisces, as she must. She is even more a believer in Pisces, but good old Saturn is the task master and he knows being on time can make or break our progress. We know he is right, so we get back on course with renewed focus.

Venus is then on her way to bless Mars in Pisces, but he quickly changes into his own sign Aries! He changes the same day as the New Moon, at 9:39 PM Pacific! The next day is Chinese New Year, the year of the Red Fire Rooster! How apropo that Mars, the red fire planet, is in Aries, the red sign, right on time for that day! He leaves Venus behind while she begins to slow to retrograde, so the connection isn’t made. They may converse about Piscean matters, but he has to carry her wishes on without her. Likely he will because she asked him so kindly and in Aries he takes action! He is, after all, the Champion, the Hero!

Jupiter sextile Saturn in Sagittarius has been and is still quite close, but Jupiter is backing away, stilling to retrograde Feb 5. So they discuss the projects, but for the time being Saturn will need to carry the building forward while Jupiter thinks things over in Libra. Jupiter will think on who does which work best, proportions – how much of this and that, beauty versus necessity. They will come back together, make their exact connection, complete their project Aug 27.

Cardinal T Square! Mercury potently conjunct Pluto, Square Uranus and Jupiter! Cardinal signs gets things started! Mercury is very earthly logical, practical in Capricorn, and looks at the extremes with Pluto. From birth to death, poverty to billionaires, cheating to ’til death do us part, impotent to charismatic! Uranus in Aries lights the Spirit afire, may have burnout, leave outgrown friends behind only to find ones with ideas far ahead of their times. It may be alone or working on an international project that uses every minute fraction of their mental physics, consumed with creation! All this calls Jupiter in Libra to record the story, recode it for the lay person. Jupiter is not afraid of far reaching effects, expands the territory with alacrity! It requires Jupiter’s ability to grasp the magnitude of the perceptions then balance them cleverly in Libra so there is a stunning play of wholeness achieved! The Aquarian overtone adds the innate need for it to work as above, so below, as in nature, air over Earth.

Amongst all the unpredictable Aquarius New Moon, Jupiter loving switching sides in Libra, Venus sashaying about, all that mutable morphing Pisces, and Mercury stirring the Pluto point of the cardinal get-things-started brew, know that you don’t know! It may take months to decipher what happened! It will be computers and beyond computers. It will be the most pristine data but put together in a way that defies what most people think and will even make Aquarians wonder!

It is a perfect first New Moon for 2017! Earth, Science, and Heavenly Magic!

Moon Setting Eclipse Patrick Cullis Indian Peaks Boulder Colorado

A big eclipsed Moon setting in the early morning hours of December 10, 2011. The Indian Peaks are a series of peaks on the continental divide near Boulder, Colorado. By amazing photographer Patrick Cullis

The First Eclipse of 2017 has a complex bouquet, is laden with opportunities!

This is a rare total Penumbral Eclipse! The Moon moves through the faint, outer part of the Earth’s shadow. It is often hard to differentiate between a normal full Moon and a penumbral eclipse of the Moon, but watch closely, at the time, for deep penumbral shading on the north half of the lunar disk! The apparent diameter of this Moon is larger than average since the eclipse occurs 4.4 days after perigee (nearest Earth).

It is still a line up, Sun, Earth, Moon. Aquarius Sun will shine on the part of Earth facing the Sun, infusing his Light. In light wave fashion, Sun moves the molecules, Earth transmits and filters this energy to Mother Moon waiting in the Shadow. Moon in Leo is receptive, absorbent, generously cradling, nurturing. She returns her own Light of the heart, delicately mingling, intertwining like DNA flowing both directions, with the incoming Light, through Earth, back to Sun, giving her support, showing how much we care. She has a lot of Love to give.

Full Moon at 22 degrees is most closely tied with Chiron at 22 Pisces. Sun semi sextiles its neighbor. Moon is inconjunct, an aspect of peripheral awareness and adjustment. What might have started as a nuisance, a sense of being misaligned, becomes an adjunct factor that invites and enriches. It is less directly involved, so has less bias. It could even become the next branch, or the new main direction! Moon is a nurturer and senses Chiron’s needs though in Pisces they can seem more whimsical than real. If there are debilitating addictions, it is more serious. Moon is experienced and sees the nuances of value, and in Leo is uplifting. Moon in Leo may always be concerned to do its best, be on. Chiron sees any weaknesses and subtly advises reasonable moderation and self care. Chiron may be able to do some oblique healing from that off center angle.

Chiron YOD! With Chiron’s inconjunct Moon, it is also inconjunct Jupiter, a more long term aspect, forming a ‘Y’! The inconjunct with Jupiter is strong, because as Chiron moves forward into it, Jupiter is retrograding back to meet it! Their first exact aspect was Dec 31, 2016, the last aspect of 2016. It is holding now closely until it makes the second exact aspect on Valentine’s Day! The adjustment this inconjunct requires is a fine tuning of our beliefs, acknowledging healing needed, updating how we teach and speak, our life work and relationship choices. Those are big topics. One alone would be big, but now they are unifying as a whole! Jupiter wants you to look further ahead, to add good will, trust you will do ok, to connect you higher up the food chain in a good way. Allow that!

Chiron is at the semi sextile MIDPOINT between Sun and Uranus. The amazing astronomical geometry about the Chiron/Uranus combination is that it started Nov 2008 and continues through Sep 2021, a total of THIRTEEN years!  See more The Sun of this Eclipse lights it right up! Sun semisextiles Chiron, sextiles Uranus, the Aquarian planet! Chiron watches, perhaps silently, in Pisces, noticing the beauty of their bringing the masses to a new level of awakening, how our differences are our contributions. New songs are written in a flash, an acceptable unique style arises! A penumbral Eclipse is a subtle wellspring. Sun/Uranus will use blatant excitement and wild word cues that spark curiosity that had lain dormant but is now eager! Chiron may whisper a caution here or there, or lean forward when the cues are perfectly unzipped!

LUCKY Grand Fire Trine Sun KITE, Mystic Rectangle!

Only one point is missing, the Gemini position, to make a Grand Sextile! See all those connected green lines in the chart?! Moon bases a Grand FIRE Trine KITE pattern!

The Mystic Rectangle is composed of two parallel trines, Moon trine Uranus and Sun trine Jupiter! The Rectangle is completed by sextiles, Moon sextile Jupiter, and Sun sextile Uranus! SO many lucky aspects! Read on….

The Grand trine Kite is the Moon, Saturn, Uranus Grand trine with the Sun midpoint between Saturn and Uranus is the KITE!

  • Moon trines Saturn in Sagittarius, a Mother to Father Time arrangement. There is harmony with the softness of women and the sweetness of children. Saturn is the Father, securing shelter, working for a long good life. Leo and Sagittarius are both teachers, so educational choices are blessed. Leo is a creator sign, of expression like performance, and through color and lighting. Saturn in Sagittarius so wants their project to excel, have a long life, contribute meaningfully. Their collaboration potential is exceptional.
  • Moon trines Uranus in Aries, the planet of friendship, awareness, awakening, international community! Moon is your neighborhood, local community. Uranus is friends and world community! Moon is commodities of daily living, Uranus is the inventor that makes daily life more comfortable and fun. Moon has the memory banks of the matriarchy, history, an intuition that can’t be beat! Uranus is the holder of a hub of insights of future possibilities. Together there is a blessed alliance, rich progress!
  • Saturn trine Uranus is a long term aspect, first happened Christmas Eve, Dec 24. It will retrograde soon and return to the trine, but not until May 18. It is within 4 degrees now, still mulling over how it will fold good changes into working living, how to repair any damages or difficulties that change has brought. Saturn is persistent, wants to put things to good use. Though it is moving away for the time being, that doesn’t mean it is giving up, not coming back. In Sagittarius it will have a good look about and discover more successful ways of making changes that bring better living, to broaden our range of possibilities.
  • Sun in Aquarius is sextile MIDPOINT right between Saturn and Uranus making the KITE pattern! Saturn was the old ruler of Aquarius, Uranus is the current ruler of Aquarius! Earthy Saturn rules ancient things, archaeology, while airy Uranus rules inventions, planes, computers, the Internet! Times are bound by Saturnian Earth laws that will always be, by Karma and Dharma, what we have done and our mission each life. Uranus explores the outer reaches, keeps calling us forward in evolution, offers new ways to align disparate beliefs, awakens whole groups of people to their potentials! The Sun, Leo’s planet, puts warmth in this process, lights the way with love and heart that gives us the courage to step up! Strong friendships and community and world networks will figure in prominently.

Jupiter in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries knits this lucky pattern even further! Jupiter offers the blessings of connections both local and foreign, education, abundance possibly through grants and scholarships. Jupiter trine Sun, is a hella lucky, fame & fortune aspect! It gives an exemplary sense of personal confidence and trustworthiness, far reaching vision, enjoyable potential. Jupiter sextile Moon is another lucky prosperous aspect! Moon intuitively knows cycles, excellent for stock trades and investments. Moon gives Mother love, is strong and protective, while Jupiter supports relationships with peoples of different cultures, economic standing, faiths, ages.

Saturn sextiles Sun and trines Moon! Saturn is a grounding planet though now in Sagittarius is its more flexible in its demands. It may be more opinionated, but if a better way is demonstrated, it will make the change. Sun in Aquarius wants to be free and is easily bored, but Saturn in Sag can be wise enough to favorably gain their attention and contribute to the Sun’s research and international work. Saturn is at times a little old fashioned and stuffy and that is something Aquarius will never be! Saturn has to come up to speed in modern terms sometimes so things can progress in context of our current times. Yep, ok, understand, will do. See Moon trines Saturn above.

Another long term aspect is Saturn square Chiron. This one was exact the first time Dec 28. For some it brought sorrows and losses of all kinds depending on how it was with their personal charts. We lost Zsa Zsa Gabor, George Michael, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds and William Christopher in that period. The next exact aspect is April 30, and the last Nov 2. Saturn are things we are held responsible for, in Sagittarius it has to do with faith, learning, promoting, being ethical, truth without exaggeration or omits. Chiron in Pisces can be fragile or a powerful believer with profound visions. Saturn is a hard worker and will expect them to measure up, find ways to get the job done. Chiron invites Saturn to let go of chronic matters, rigid boundaries, harsh expectations. Some things are just bigger than we are and we must let go and grow with them, time changes the parameters. Sometimes a gentle approach with encouragement tips the scales.

Jupiter sextiles Saturn in Jupiter’s sign Sagittarius! Jupiter is still close though retrograding away. They have been together for months, so the considerations their combination brings is gradually seeping into our consciousness. It’s a working arrangement fueled by legal and amazing design advice, plus Saturn’s expertise at building structures that suit the environment. Work is a pleasure, education pays off, travel is a welcome component!

Apart from all the aspect network above, Mercury, also in Aquarius, is sextile Venus in Aries at the same degree, and Mars in its own sign Aries! This is a combination of brilliant intelligence! Mercury with Venus is the blessing of kind words, words that show love, are spoken like poetry, give appreciation! Aquarius and Mars and Aries are looking for freedom and independence. They can act potently alone, but paradoxically once they are free enough, mature in their Spirits, they are are free to choose to work together and in groups when it makes sense. There is that phrase, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Venus is slowing to retrograde March 4, so it doesn’t make the conjunction with Mars. She’s close enough to give Mars the current information, the inspiration of her gratitude! He will fight in her behalf, loves being the instigator, first one there, the fearless chief! He rises to challenge with super vitality!

Though Full Moons are oppositions, Moon opposite Sun, this one is laced with favorable connections. And if we think of planets opposite each other that doesn’t have to mean they are against each other. Think incorporation, collaboration! Each has their gift to give. In this case, Leo is the sign of the heart of Light, lovers! Valentine’s Day is the Aquarius holiday! Aquarius is the philanthropist, distributes wealth, has planet wide connections and projects for people, initiates environmental healing and maintenance. It is brotherly love, just a different dimension of the possibility of love in its wholeness!

With all my praises of these aspects, all those positive blue and green lines in the chart, they won’t be good for everyone, or will have no effect at all. They will only be good for those whose charts they activate in a good way. Please see your astrologer to find how they are situated per your personal chart. Also, the time of day events are initiated makes a huge difference and those times of day are not the same for every person. Please. See your astrologer.

That said, I wish you great success!
