Capricorn 2018 Celestial HighLights

Capricorn ~ Stones, Castles & Labyrinths! 

Capricorn Dunure Castle Labyrinth Scotland Michelini

Magical place, Dunure Castle and Labyrinth, Scotland. Beautiful photo by Stefano Michelini!

Capricorns have a Spirit as ancient as the rocks they befriend.

Rocks have been known throughout time as sacred guardians – protectors from marauders, cave, castle or stone home shelter. Capricorn does this as naturally as breathing. They can be fierce to the bone and give you the evil Mephistopheles eye that makes you backup and shiver if you dare to threaten or intrude! Capricorns are loyal and dependable. You want them on your side, LOL, because they are clever as all get out!

Rocks used in retaining walls, as dams for water, irrigation, surrounds for fire pits on a cold windy night, are invaluable – can save your life! Capricorn gets the most from the land sustainably and safely. They work easily with scientists and engineers, responding creatively to their ideas. They may even be the scientist, researcher!

Stones can make cheap fences. In areas with little wood and lotsa rocks, at high altitudes, or like in the British isles, they are perfect for boundary lines between farms. It’s important to know your place, to respect and let others live their lives their way. Gates, keys, thresholds, stone archway entrances, are all part of the flow ways between. Use your dowsing rod to find exactly where they should be installed.

Those same walls can keep us in a safe place, the sheep and goats in a safe place. Capricorns know sometimes it’s better to be right where you are until things have changed, or you are strong enough to go beyond on your own natural boundaries. Thank the walls that save you from yourself!

Foundations that will last forever might be essential. They are our roots, the abiding principles in our lives that are time tested. Caps are master Builders. Consult with them to understand weaknesses, how to get stronger. Just like people have dogs and gardens that mimic themselves, so does your structure, starting with the foundation, mimic your life choices, only this one might be long term. Look ahead as a Capricorn would from his high mountain vantage point. Think about the truest meanings, the deepest values you want to live for. Give that a strong foothold.

Gravel! The everyday gravel in the paths of our lives, gravel as mulch in a Zuni waffle garden. From round to natural ragged footpath stones. Square, retangular, dovetailing in grand patterns. We are always wearing things down to a fine texture. What was so big yesterday, a few months ago, years ago, has less presence now. It’s been divided and worked in the increments we can handle. Bits of it have been fitted into our being, other parts have been let go, we have changed, grown and no longer need them. This new ‘soil’ is the fertile ground that new parts of ourselves can grow in.

The magnificent wheel grinding the grain to flour is akin to that gravel. Capricorn is aware of the finality of transformation when it gets to a certain point. Capricorn Builders don’t always build up, sometimes they reduce to fit, like those corner stones in a stone paved driveway or patio, or the pieces made to fit in a rock wall. There are times we need to surrender to fit with life. We intelligently shape shift to make the best of it at the time. Because it is our choice, we don’t mind. Sometimes we can shift back later; other times what’s done is done. We are literally a chip off the old block.

Capricorn Wheel Meeting Place Durango Dry Stone

As Durango Dry Stone says: Partnering with Gravity to make beautiful functional art! 

ART Sculptures, ornate stone buildings and temples, sacred gardens, meeting places. Capricorn beauty is often geometric, long lasting. Sculptings often are symbolic of timeless principles, people of great honor. Technical skills give Capricorns an artistic edge, miraculous to the rest of us. Gardens are a blend of land, prestigious and pedigreed plants, stonework that presents them without taking away from them. Intricate and handsome enrichment. Meeting places, like the one in the image, can be inspiring, calling us to be in our higher Spirit. Doesn’t matter what the surroundings are, the meeting place is powerful in its own right. It makes you want to be counted.

Markers – cairns along the trail for wilderness wanderers, monuments, and tombstones that show respect that we existed in whatever way our Spirit intended. Honor and remembrance are deep in the Capricorn Soul. None of us may completely understand. We just know there are many things in progress. Though Capricorn is a solid rock earth sign, they are wise Beings that by default also understand what’s unspoken or invisible. They may seem super sober, by the book, as rigid as those rocks, but don’t judge them entirely by their cover. They are realists, and it doesn’t get more ‘psychic’ than that. As far as that reference to being rigid goes, maybe they were undependable in past lives and now they are making up for lost time to a fault!

Capricorn Stone Crinkle Crankle Wall by Dutch Engineers in the 17th Century - Pie Crusts?!

Stones can be born, forged by volcanic fire, pressed into existence by Earth Herself. At times, in the high country, we hear them crackle as they freeze, then scream and split – rock fall causing mini quakes as they roll, tumble, crush to a resting place. Canyons form, with creeks and rivers that grind the rocks round to sand and silt. In all time, they become soil on the floodplains. Fertility, minerals for our food plants depend on them. This tremendous process is at times what our Capricorns go through. They can feel compressed and potent to the point of being almost explosive. They can be content, being completely who they are a whole lifetime with no questions. There are times they bust loose, like the maker of the fence at left! It is a ‘crinkle crankle’ wall built by Dutch engineers in the 17th century! There may be a lot more wiggle room than we thought! We are so surprised and often they are too! Not the same person! No map could do it justice!

Some stones are so old our ancestors remembered them; some of us remember them as places we were at in past lives – they remember us! That’s why we are so attracted to some crystals or certain stones in jewelry. Stones were the first wheels! The Stone People have been witnesses throughout the ages. They have witnessed births, marriages, baptisms, sacrifices, deaths, whole lives, generations. Priests and the High Priestesses know these places intuitively. Some are sacred, some need a little cleansing to revive their well being. Know that stones are living entities. It is just that they function a little differently than we do.

A stone Labyrinth is symbolic of a life story unfolding, how we walk our lives. Purification prayer, a gift to the Labyrinth at the entrance, maybe a pause at the turns, approach the center. Stand still in Peace and gratitude. Return, refreshed, into your day. Let all be well with you.

Capricorn Overview of Year to Come!

We start Capricorn’s new year with Venus and Mercury both direct (no longer retrograde) finishing their complete retrograde cycles. For some it was a long 4 months. See Venus/Mercury Rx! 

Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet, entering Sagittarius was the last of a 10 day series of events that started when Pluto crossed the Golden Ecliptic Oct 30 2018! These events occurred during Venus Retrograde that was followed back to back with Mercury Retrograde Nov 16! Sagittarius got us on the Path, Capricorn will lead us through the most treacherous parts. They have nerves of steel and are as fearless as those mountain goats!

The potent Ecliptic event links with the Nov 11, 2019 Transit of Mercury Eclipse!  As Pluto was purified in the Sun’s path, the Ecliptic, for many days, now, Mercury, in Pluto’s sign Scorpio, crosses the face of the Scorpio Sun, being purified for hours! The Sun burns away the dross. Pluto is the great internal purifier that works in the dark from within! This is where the Kundalini life fire emerges, and the Phoenix rises from its own ashes! Resurrection! What a powerful combination. Clearly Mercury can take it, being in Scorpio, a powerfully strong sign. On the average, there are only 13 transits of Mercury each century. The next will be 2032. Only a few days later, Nov 19, Jupiter, in his own sign Sagittarius, conjuncts the GALACTIC CENTER! At this level we’re talking a whole different kind of purification, the light of many stars/suns, galaxies. Though it is only on a 12 year cycle, this and the Transit of Mercury are potent as sister aspects, essentially happening concurrently! And they could see the Light…….

Mercury acted as witness to the Ecliptic event and observer, documentarian of what he saw at that time and the results in the year following. Conjunct the Sun, the Transit of Mercury Eclipse, Mercury will be empowered by solar light, to express himself in the most radiant manner possible! People will listen. Mercury is the information gatherer, messenger. Mercury is strengthened to receive then report on Jupiter at the GALACTIC CENTER! He puts it in perspective, knows the meaning, intention, long term purpose! Mercury is the neighbor you know; Jupiter is, in this case, the galactic traveler, a fascinating impressive stranger!

Pluto was at the Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn 58 Rx. The Transit Mercury Eclipse will be sextile (opportunity) at 18 Scorpio 55 Rx. Mercury will move back to 11 SC 43 Rx when at the Galactic Center. Notice these are all Rx, retrograde. Retrograde means you have been there before and you will be again afterwards. It’s a 3 part cycle. Three chances. It’s good to get it right!

Capricorn starts with Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune in their own signs! See Jupiter in Sagittarius That’s a lot of pure strong energy. Jupiter and Neptune are malleable signs, in astrological terms, mutable. They are flexible, adaptable. Saturn stomps his foot and calls for responsibility and to abide by the rules and laws, honor your parents, the boss, elders and ancestors! You have to show him how and why that change makes sense. He’s a good balance to those wayward wanderers enamored in a moment, sometimes for no good reason. They are enjoying the show and he wants to know what’s real, is it doable.

During Cap’s year, Uranus and Chiron are making their final sign changes. Feb 18 Chiron returns to Aries. While he is still in Pisces, we will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as getting your bricks in row. Mar 6 Uranus to Taurus. Uranus in Aries brought plenty of drought and fires in the western US, with floods in the East. Hopefully, in Taurus fertility will be naturalized and balance restored. Chiron takes 51 years per sign and Uranus 84 years. It will be that long before they will be in Pisces and Aries again!

By November 8, 2019, all SIX of Jupiter’s and Saturn’s 2019’s outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn sextile Neptune is a peerless appraiser, even ‘sees’ what is not visible! If he’s behind you, he is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget sleeping in, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it! Those SIX aspects finish just before the Nov 11, eleven, eleven Transit of Mercury Eclipse and Nov 19 Jupiter at the Galactic Center. Our Neptune imagination is being primed, tested, found strong and receptive!

These profound events were during Sun in Scorpio, Mercury retrograde in Scorpio. The transmissions were taken in deeply, churned like good butter. Since Mercury is mind, Jupiter meaning, we may not witness physical change,  especially with such an aspect as exotic and from so far as the Galactic Center, our Soul didn’t miss a trick! Changes will seem to unfold for no reason and one day we realize there has become a difference.

Sun in Sagittarius thinks them over and the entry of Jupiter into Capricorn is different this time. These special aspects have prepared the way for Jupiter moving into Capricorn Dec 2! That will make 3 outer planets in Capricorn until Saturn enters Aquarius March 31, 2020! Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn July 1, again, 3 in Capricorn until Saturn goes forward into AQ Dec 16! Jupiter will become a bit cautious, but his robust nature will speed Capricorn up! They are both high mountain lovers, so looks like it’s going to be fun! Jupiter will make the travel plans; Cap will build the lodge! Jupiter quickly sees potential, offers encouragement, gathers the backers. Capricorn is ace at putting the right pieces together with terrific timing. Successful champions! The job comes in early, and the results are impressive! See more about Jupiter in Capricorn!

And that brings us to Jan 12, 2020, Saturn conjunct Pluto! See all about it!

We are building to the 2020 Super Stellium! 3 outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto will all be in Capricorn! New Year Day opens with 5 planets in Capricorn! Mercury conjunct Jupiter, Jupiter conjunct Sun plus Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn! Jan 12 Saturn makes the exact conjunction.

The CROWN! March 21 2020 Saturn is about to leave Capricorn, the three outer planets are in culmination, as close as they will get, in a 7 degree Stellium! Peter Novak as studied outer planet stelliums and found that in the last 2000 years, allowing a 5 degree range, there were only 23 three outer planet stelliums! Yes, if he had allowed 7 degrees, there would be more, but still, they are uncommon. See more about Saturn with Pluto!

 
Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Sagittarius’s coming year they are exact twice – Jan 19 Pisces/Aries and June 30 Aries/Taurus of 2019! More

Outer Planet Transits with Capricorn 2018 – January 2020!

Capricorn Patagonia Torres del Paine National Park Trekkers Mountains

Trekkers enjoying the fierce conditions at Patagonia’s Torres del Paine National Park! Stuplendous, for a fact! Put Patagonia, Machu Picchu, Nepal, the high altitude head-clearing places on your list this year! 

OUTER PLANETS WITH CAPRICORN – Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter

Outer planets are the long term movers. Pluto and Neptune move only 3 degrees a year. Uranus at 84 years, and Chiron at 51 years, are advancing about 4 degrees a year for now. Saturn takes 28/29 years to make its orbit, Jupiter only 12 years, a sign a year! Depending on astrological patterns, some ‘events’ in our lives take many years, where others may happen toot sweet, right on or very near the date the event is exact! Some ‘events’ are not physical, but in our minds or Spirits. No one might ‘see’ them but you. Complex planetary patterns may overlap each other or be singular and direct. Some repeat; others are once in a lifetime. Some people have aspects others never have. Others have had aspects you won’t have until much later. Your astrologer can help you with your personal timing, understanding and strategies.

PLUTO is still in Capricorn but is changed. Oct 30, 2018 it made the rare 248 year aspect, Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic and is now below it! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path around earth! Pluto’s debris was lighted, declared to be outmoded, to be cleared away. He was not only cleared, but became clean, freed to be charged with energy beyond imagination! His healing powers have increased exponentially! He will gave that very energy to Sun and the Light itself is now more clear and radiant! So fresh, this is a powerful time for all of us, but especially Capricorns because this HAPPENED IN THEIR SIGN! Those of you with chart factors at or very close to 18 degrees, especially in Scorpio or Capricorn, have also been cleared and infused! Some will go to the Light, others might need some time out to be able to stand up again. None of these factors, Capricorn, Scorpio nor Pluto are light weights. It takes a lot to impress them, and they can withstand high intensity, but this tested even them.

Pluto reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018, now moving from 20 to 23 degrees. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile aspect, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, mighty healing and miraculous survival.  Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Pluto continues to clear Capricorn, making projects effective and viable. Timely features accounting for climate changes, up to date materials, employing the latest experts bring Capricorn’s work right into the news! The work has a special feel to it, charismatic! Capricorn is still the responsible, quality craftsman, and it shows! He applies these principles to new ideas, and it works! Pluto knows where to get the funding, so when there was nothing before, all of a sudden unexpected backing happens! Pluto has gut feelings when there is danger and will help Cap sidestep the pitfalls and pick more trustworthy business partners. He spices up Cappie’s love choices. It pays to have both love and money, LOL! Live fully with a juicy partner who loves you the way you are, but also wants more for you than you do, believes in you in a good way! Pluto insists on paying attention to your health. No neglect or abandoning yourself. Keep your teeth, LOL! Capricorn may doggedly stick to some of his ideas, but doesn’t have obsessions as Pluto can. Pluto will be gifted to be in Cap’s presence and find he too can let go at times.

NEPTUNE is in his own sign Pisces. He is a water planet in the last water sign, seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors betweenn 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Though they are so different, Neptune is quite helpful to Capricorn. Neptune dissolves some of the Capricorn crust, inspires him with elegant visions, shows him ways to ride through the storm. Capricorn survives against long odds, and holds awards for his service. Tidal Neptune always has a song of the sea, rises and falls, carries the great ships to far places. Often weaker in childhood, Capricorn finds his own sacred rhythm, his own special place in our world, an honored master of his craft. Neptune shows him there is more than what we do, are known for. We have Soul as well. That’s the magic part of the Capricorn Magician, High Priest/ess, Wizard/Witch!

URANUS covers 28 Aries to 6 Taurus! Uranus entered Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in the last two degrees of Aries will be accomplishing the maturity of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future ideas that Taurus will anchor and build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network. They need to be cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, so they can effortlessly be carried on. See more about the sign change.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is automatic. In fiery Aries, it’s the First of everything, truly awakening! Aries is pretty unflappable, but this really shakes your space! Aries loves a challenge and new things. Rarely are they outdone in that dept, but Uranus has a bigger platform. It rules humanity, and although Aries is only one person, they step up because they know the value of key positions that make the difference! Uranus replaces some Aries circuits and the game is bigger yet! Can’t get enough! Young people have been fired up. The Awakener has opened their eyes! What powerful times we are in!

Uranus in Aries, and Capricorn may vie for position, but it won’t last long. Aries quickly sees what can be done then like lightning takes of for the next venture. Capricorn may swat at him like a fly, take a good look at his ideas, ask him to leave or stay! Whatever you do, you will be changed! Cap will think about him after he’s gone, but Cap is always working onward, so will forget him in time. Meanwhile the ideas live on as Capricorn figures out how to get them to work and tests them. Capricorn is tested to just listen a bit, not judge that not all people live by routines, are on time, or live to please them, LOL! Ah, and so it is. Those few days or moments together can mean a lot, be quite valuable, so take it in. Use what you can, let the rest go, but archive the ideas – they may become useful later. Uranus in Aries is innovative, fresh, ahead of their time! Don’t miss the clue!

March 6, 2019 Uranus enters Taurus the final time. Taurus invents simple! It either feels too close for comfort, or it’s the most fun you’ve had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! You may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away at all. But somehow it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Divine body electric!

Taurus is an Earth sign and so is Capricorn! Their connections with Earth are different. Taurus is thought of as the fertile food growing fields, while Capricorn is the high mountain peaks the soil comes from. Taurus is barefooted in his tank top; Capricorn has gear for all kinds of weather and strong mountain boots. Taurus can be lazy warm, the cows and their cuds, while Capricorn is bone numbing cold, with only enough vegetation for goats! You could die. Taurus shows Capricorn how to relax, use the comfort to heal and release what was held tight. Capricorn, to his surprise, feels lighter and gets twice as much done with all that old stuff gone. Taurus helps Capricorn assess his own body, find more beauty, to nibble the flowers in the highlands, eat those alpine strawberries. They both love sex! Taurus is super sensual. Rutty goat Capricorn has never had flower petals in the sheets before…but how yummy it is in front of that beautiful big fireplace when winter comes! Uranus in Taurus is people of the land, indigenous as well as many of us. He wants the land to be free, natural, to be used sustainably. He calls on Capricorn law to preserve and regulate, restore. He calls on Capricorn scientists to show historical change, predict what can be done.

CHIRON, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, entered Aries April 17 2018! After taking a foray into Aries, he is now back in Pisces until Feb 18. He will cover 28 Pisces to almost 6 Aries, activating any factors you have in those degrees. See more Chiron travels very close to the same degrees as Uranus, but in different signs! Pisces and Aries are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes; Aries takes action!

If you have Chiron in those degrees of Pisces/Aries, you will be having your 51+/- year Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed, your teaching skills improved. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head, brain and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Chiron, the Shaman, will stand beside Capricorn. Healing will go through Capricorn directly to Capricorn’s people – his family, coworkers, employees, friends in official positions. Chiron will up Capricorn’s sense if now is the time to change the system, update old rules and laws, open a new business. A long lasting marriage may be on the table. It may be more of a practical business partnership than romantic, and that would likely be ok with both partners. It would be healing to both of them to succeed.

As Uranus leaves Aries, Chiron goes into Aries Feb 18 for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life now! He commiserates all too well since he himself carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Aries inspires, leads us into immediate action! Capricorn may be nonplussed or saying it’s about time! Working together may be a challenge. Personal relationships, marriages may not happen. Do check with your astrologer! Cappies are likely working hard as they always do. Then this wild fiery Aries Shaman type comes in, unasked even, and makes plausible suggestions, groan. Things need updating, new things added, and there is an official deadline. Ye, Gods, now to do that too?! Yes, it will be better, safer, more productive, but it’s gonna take time and less sleep. There might be a few implications about changing some personal things too. Well, if they improve your health, ok. But even that takes dedicated attention. Stay with it, and give that Shaman a little sass! Tell him if he wants it done, to send some special energies your way! Hmpf! And maybe some funds to hire a helper!

SATURN builds from 10 to 21 Capricorn.

Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign! Many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better, or you start your own business!


Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 11 to 23 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through January 20, 2020! There will be more traditional endeavors.

  1. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself.
  2. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have acquired! It’s a time to honor, be honored!
  3. Around age 87, many are now experiencing their 3rd Saturn Return! Things don’t bother them as much. They enjoy what they want to, sometimes something they always wanted to do! There are losses of friends and loved ones. Health matters more – they are often quite brave. Family can mean a lot or if alone, friends do. Age can mean honors, even just for making it that long! Capricorn is the sign of time, elderhood. This is generally a strong time for them.

Saturn in it’s own sign, Earth sign Capricorn, is a force! It makes young people old and old people more healthy,  younger than others their age, and strong! Saturn adds to the desire to do good work. Saturn recognizes natural law, so its works stand the test of time. Timing is one of its fortes. Steady production, the right people in the right places at the time, being on time, are all assets. They are not only architects, builders and realtors, but understand structures – concrete, stones, glass. They can build roads and railways, bridges, homes, skyscrapers! They can do demolition as well as renovation! Saturn is expert at sustainability and conservation – more done with less effort, use less materials, smaller and stronger, for less cost, build tiny homes communities for homeless and seniors, contribute huge land grants to establish legendary preserves. As seniors they don’t quit. They become mentors, and with experience on their side, use new ideas of the times to start the latest businesses! They may be late starters sometimes, but often their later years are just golden – art awards, health successes, the happiness of long marriages and plenty of grandkids!

JUPITER moves from 11 Sagittarius to 6 Capricorn

Jupiter is a big fire planet, entered his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Jupiter went into Sag at 4:38 AM Pacific. The huge Camp Fire in Paradise, California started that morning, first calls at 6:33 AM. Jupiter changing signs was preceded by an eventful NINE days started by the important 248 year aspect Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! I had written ‘Pay special attention to Nov 6, 7, 8!’ The Camp Fire took the lives of 88 people, 25 still missing as of Dec 2. Nov 15 nearby Chico CA had an AQI, Air Quality Index, of 350 at one point.

Jupiter stays in Sag the majority of 2019, until moving into Capricorn Dec 2. Jupiter/Sagittarius never fails to impress. It can be a hero, and there are plenty of those at this time. It can be a knowledge or wisdom of an exalted teacher and that might be your local high school teacher. It can be a journey of great beauty or a maximum athletic achievement. A boundless love, a loving kindness, a gift, sharing. All these touch our hearts and make a story to remember. Fortunes gained and lost, wagers won and lost, starting from nothing to making it to the top of the mountain! And, as spoken above, if it’s bad, it can be really bad. No thieving or robbing. While traveling and your money is low, no taking something because you need it ‘more than they do.’ Big stories yes, cons no. No ‘accidental’ slander, bearing false witness, prejudice. Stay with respectful truth and honesty. Keep the long term in mind. Keep your higher ethics in place, morality intact; visit the sacred place when you need to. Keep learning in every direction.

Jupiter in Capricorn makes work the most fun it ever was! You could be the visitor who is remembered for all the work you did! You might be a random traveler, a business consultant, the foreigner who was on a mission to help the people. Jupiter will help you jazz up your home, give you such good advice you can’t help doing it! They might volunteer and you join them to make some kind of profound difference. Don’t keep your lucky Jupiter charm. They need to travel, check out the territories. If you hire them, send them to the training seminars furthest away or send them to teach it! If they have too much routine, they will run away. Poof. Gone. Import/exports they are involved with might work well for you too. Their writings may inspire you to start an outstanding business newsletter or monthly report people count on. Jupiter can overdo, so Cappies beware. Know your personal limits. If you have had doldrums, Jupiter can cheer you up like a champ. You are encouraged because they act like you can do it, and it’s truth! See more 

If you have factors in Sagittarius and/or Capricorn in your chart at these degrees, this could be prime time to visit the positive areas where they are on your AstroLocality map. See your AstroLocality specialist! Not all map lines are positive; some are positive only at certain portions along their length.

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. The experience you have will depend on how Jupiter is situated in your chart and how current planetary positions apply to your chart. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and good marriages are possible.

Happy Birthdays, Capricorns from your forever grateful fans!

Mercury Conjunct Venus Retrograde 2018 Face Cup Fingers Flowers

The Mercury Mind Combined with Venus Art! What a Cup of Tea!

About retrogrades! 

Whether ascending or descending, what a journey! What amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. What’s behind is out of sight, a memory, what’s ahead is a mystery! Bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. They give us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch. In this case, having two planets dancing, you may be a bit dizzy and overwhelmed! At times one is going forward while the other is going backward, and vice versa!

Every Retrograde is unique, per the signs, the planet, the connections made with other planets during their retrograde cycle.

Venus, Libra’s own planet is first! Her complete cycle spans Sep 2 to Dec 17! Mercury follows, his complete cycle Oct 28 to Dec 24, Christmas Eve. Venus goes direct, forward Nov 16 as Mercury starts his retrograde the very same day in Pacific time! Venus starts in her own sign Libra, goes forward into Scorpio, turns Rx in Scorpio. She is predominantly in Scorpio. Mercury starts in Scorpio, goes forward into Sagittarius, retrogrades in Sagittarius, predominantly in Sag! Not only are these Rxs linked back to back, but both planets spend time in Scorpio, making it the pivotal sign between them.

Three signs! Venus establishes awareness of the value of Libra and Scorpio, both relationship signs. She whispers sweet things to Mercury the Messenger! He can’t resist spreading the word, thinks and thinks about what she said as he goes along. Each time he tells the story it is a little bit different, maybe a bit bigger too, LOL! He uses Scorpio wisdom to jump start Sagittarius. Sag wants the meaning of things, especially those things! He makes plans for it to come true! Where Scorpio, knowing the darker side, doesn’t alway trust, Sagittarius trusts Scorpio to remove the greatest encumbrances. Sag has faith all will become well no matter what. He is an excellent Pathfinder and the best ways will be found! He’s good at finding them.

Venus Retrograde Oct 5, Direct Nov 16 Pacific!

Venus Retrogrades from 10 Scorpio 50 back to 25 Libra Oct 5 to Nov 16. The whole three part cycle starts Sep 3, finishes Dec 17. Venus is in her own sign Libra loving beauty, gracing relationships, making introductions, dancing, appraising and balancing values, organizing gatherings. Venus in Scorpio wants more. More return on investment, a deeper relationship, beauty is not required. She depends on her inborn charisma to get her through the dark scary places and dares to go there. Do not underestimate her. Her love is a healing all its own.

Venus retrograde hostesses the Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic and the remarkable 10 DAY sequence that event starts! She is retrograde at 0 Scorpio when the conjunction occurs. The next day she is back in her sign Libra, rebalancing relationships that are quickly going through stunning changes! She connects us with specialist shamans that open gates to future healing. Your relationship with yourself changes. As Uranus returns to Aries Nov 6, Venus is on the spot, helping him renew or establish new connections. She helps the Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon bring ideas to the surface to be linked far and wide. She is at Jupiter’s side Nov 8 as he shifts from Scorpio to Sagittarius, spreading the word that he will be visiting soon, showing the value of his teachings! She knows the anthropological factors that back up what he says.

Being retrograde, Venus goes back to connect any people conduits still needing to be made. The connections are necessary for Mercury Retrograde to go back to share all the exciting information that has been scooped and gathered – especially about the Pluto/Ecliptic event! Libra and Scorpio both are people oriented signs. Libra is social, often holds gatherings in behalf of a cause. It has charm, grace, and understands local and international etiquette. Libra is often involved with anthropology, museums, world arts, plays and symphonies. Scorpio knows your secrets and hopes to make $ with you, love with you, or heal you from the inside out! They are masterful at transformation, have remarkable recovery powers! Mercury will be in Scorpio twice while Venus is, so its a direct transference, specifically when Mercury conjuncts Venus Oct 15! You might connect with a kiss!

Venus makes no aspects during her retrograde cycle. Mercury makes only two aspects during both their entire cycles and both those aspects are to VENUS! Sep 3 Mercury sextiles Venus during the first of the three phases at 25 Leo/Libra 33. They conjunct Oct 15! These back to back retrogrades are indeed linked!

Classic Venus Rx carefuls are don’t expect new relationships to be forever. Be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Better to wait on beautification projects ie remodels, painting your home that color, purchasing a home, new wardrobes, related investments, cosmetic surgery, hair color changes. MAKE BACKUPS OF ALL YOUR DESIGN WORK AS YOU GO ALONG during Venus Rx, but especially during Mercury Rx!

Remember, where our attention goes, our energy flows! We don’t mind when good things come back to us – especially in Venus Rx! A retrograde can find the favorite sweater we misplaced, an old sweetheart may return (be cautious), a beautiful design may continue to be revised, to get better and better! Breaking up is hard to do in Venus Rx. It’s just not over yet and may be fully saved though least expected. Focus on the positives.

Mercury Retrograde Nov 16, Direct Dec 6 Pacific!

Venus asks ‘Who Loves you Baby?’ Mercury says ‘What?!’ It’s down to love and money and whether you sign the papers or not! Venus loves the sensuousness of relationships – body beautiful, exquisite art, intricate sequences and blends of symphony sounds, intricate cultural anthology, and right on down to the fine local handshake with someone you just meet! Venus connects us person to person. Mercury connects your minds, a thought to a thought. It’s not what you say but how you say it. Listening is just as important as speaking, hearing heart to heart. The Venus people connections, and connections with the greater world around us, will expand Mercury’s capacity, his scope of mindfulness, give him a more sophisticated outlook, a greater capacity of attention! Limitless, really.

This last Mercury Retrograde of 2018 retrogrades from 13 Sagittarius 29 back to 27 Scorpio 16 Nov 16 to Dec 6. The three part cycle starts Oct 28, finishes Dec 24, Christmas Eve! Mercury starts in Scorpio, attending to what ails us and the power within us! Secret alliances may be made, but eventually, Mercury will spill the beans. Be ready to make the most of that. Have your explanation script ready and use the revelation to our betterment. Keep your documents handy and facts at your fingertips. If you have been wanting to talk with someone for a long time, this may be your opening. Rxs are good for reviews, but not final resolutions. Share, but don’t sign. In Scorpio don’t be surprised if you are masterfully seduced, but it would truly be better to wait until you know this person well or until you see more of how the situation comes out after Dec 6. If you invest, make it so you can back out instantaneously, or wait. An old health matter may come up again and this a perfect time to take care of it, get to the root. Or, research it, then, with your astrologer, set a surgery date a week or so after Dec 6. Double check security systems before, during and after Mercury Rx in Scorpio.

In Sagittarius there are trip itinerary mix-ups, the plans change, the school, courses and instructors don’t pan out. There can be weight gain as we snack mindlessly while we nervously try to make a decision. Health matters involve something that is too much, too big, hips/thighs. We can pull a muscle just having a great time or racing. Not fair. Gambling can be a too much. Horses, big dogs, be careful. Photography blunders of panoramic vistas may appear to be a mistake, but later prove to be valuable for something you didn’t realize was in the image! Keep them all! Opportunities may come back in an unexpected way. Wait to see more, yes, until after Dec 6.

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

Sagittarius has such optimism! It may be just too good to be true, or Sag may be just so lucky as to succeed against the odds! We may find that lost winning lotto ticket! That would be ok! You may feel to revive your blog. Things have changed and you’ve got great new stuff to say. People can use that info! Resubmit for publishing. Play with the idea of going somewhere you have always wanted to go. Bet there’s a way you can do it! Good luck!

Mercury, not Rx yet, is at 29 Scorpio when Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic Oct 30! But 9:39 PM Pacific that evening it goes into Sagittarius! Mercury’s main job this time, and during the following Rx, is much more important than the usual mixing up your travel plans! It follows not only Venus Rx, but the major Pluto/Ecliptic event TEN day sequence! Some of those whose charts are connected will be reeling! Mercury is ordained to be the Messenger of what that all means, from deep and dark to the brilliant light of the Sun! It’s a perfect job for Mercury in Sagittarius! Sag automatically sees the best of things, the perspective of past to future, collects the data, makes the plans, and with faith filling its heart, teaches the Way! That is especially important because the last event of the 10 day sequence is Jupiter going into its own sign, Sagittarius!

This Venus Retrograde is important not just for being retrograde, but for hosting the intense 10 day Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic sequence Oct 30 to Nov 8 (in RED below)! She makes double sure significant changes are made. Since their cycle aspects overlap, here is the entire timetable:

Sep
Venus, Libra’s planet, starts her Retrograde cycle in Libra!
3  Mercury sextile Venus
9  Venus Scorpio
9  Virgo New Moon

Oct
Venus Retrograde
8  Libra New Moon
9  Mercury Scorpio
15 Mercury conjunct Venus Rx at 8 Scorpio 50
23 Happy Sun in Scorpio!
28 Mercury starts Retrograde Cycle
30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic
30 Mercury Sagittarius
31 Halloween
31 Venus Rx back into own sign Libra

Nov
1 Jupiter trine Chiron
6 Uranus retrograde back into Aries
Scorpio New Moon
7 Jupiter inconjunct Uranus
8 Jupiter into his own sign Sagittarius! 

16  Venus Direct (forward), Mercury Retrograde

1  Mercury Rx back into Scorpio
2  Venus Scorpio
Mercury Direct (forward)
6  Sagittarius New Moon
12  Mercury Sagittarius
17  Venus finishes Retrograde Cycle
24
  Mercury finishes Retrograde Cycle

You may be a bit exhausted after this entire 4 months long sequence. Sometimes it takes even longer as what was brought up needs time to be integrated into your now different way of living! Will life ever be smooth again? Of course! Then you will wish for some changes and you know they will come!

Be sweet and keep telling our story! It’s in your hands.

Be wise. Check carefully with your astrologer about your personal timing!

Saturn in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries - World Friendships!

Unique friendships across the world…

6.20.17 Note: As of Summer Solstice we are still in progress with Jupiter inconjunct Neptune. The last aspect is July 4! This aspect is the prominent outer planet connection in the Cancer New Faery SuperMoon June 23 and Full Moon July 8. The July 4 aspect is the first of the last of six aspects that started late 2016, retrograded and repeated 2017. They will all be going forward/direct, and finish, one by one, now through Nov 11.

4.19.17 Notes: These four aspects closed 2016, repeat two more times, are now the main aspects of 2017. They finish Nov 11, 2017. Eleven, eleven! Currently the closest aspect in progress is the April 30 Saturn square Chiron. See #3 below. Next is Saturn trine Uranus May 18, at 26 Sagittarius, the very degree of the GALACTIC CENTER! See #1 below please. For its May 17 companion aspect see Jupiter inconjunct Neptune. These aspects are all strongly tied with the Taurus time New & Full Moons.

x
2016 opened with a second time of three Jupiter VIRGO opposite Chiron, inconjunct Uranus. Jupiter inconjuncted Uranus two times. Jupiter in LIBRA reverses the aspects, opposite Uranus, inconjunct Chiron! It started opposite the first of 3 times the day after Christmas. Holiday differences of opinions, broad exchanges of information were very likely. 2015, 16, 17 have been and will be linked by these reverse aspects from different signs to Chiron and Uranus. See more! In addition, SATURN starts aspecting these two planets as well, Christmas Eve and on the Dec 28 NEW MOON.

These aspects are part of what I’m calling the Holiday Four at the end of 2016! Saturn and Jupiter are alternating. The first two aspects are to Uranus, the second two are to Chiron. All four aspects are different, strongly activating factors in our charts from 18 to 23 degrees.

  1. Christmas Eve, Dec 24 Saturn trine Uranus, 20 degrees. May 18, 2017 retrograde at 26 Sagittarius. Third and last Nov 11 at 25 Sag! Saturn goes into Capricorn Sep 2017. Uranus goes into Taurus May 2018. Saturn retrogrades back to an almost exact trine Uranus. Uranus goes into Gemini eight years later, April 2026. Saturn catches up to make the conjunction June of 2032! It will be 16 years before we have another exact aspect of these two.
  2. Dec 26 Jupiter opposition Uranus, 20 degrees. Mar 2, 2017 at 22 Libra. Last Sep 27 at 27 Libra.
  3. Dec 28 Saturn square Chiron, 21 degrees. NEW MOON 10:53 PM Pacific. Jupiter sextile Saturn closest Dec 28/29. April 30, 2017 second Saturn square Chiron 27 Sag. Third and last Nov 2 at 24 Sag.
  4. Dec 31, last day of the year, Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, 21 degrees. The year finishes with aspects to Chiron. Second inconjunct was Feb 14, 2017 at 23 Libra.. Last is Sep 23 at 26 Libra.

1. Saturn and Uranus rule neighboring signs earthy conservative Capricorn, and far, far out electric air sign Aquarius! Short and tall! Saturn is the lawmaker, Aquarius the lawbreaker! Saturn says if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Aquarius takes the clock apart and puts it back together, figuring out a new way to make it better. Saturn, the builder scientist, is so steady, determined. Uranus is infinitely unpredictable, thinks out of the box, researches and invents! Saturn puts up the framing, Uranus installs the electrical system. A trine is usually a harmonious link, so businessman Saturn and banker/bartender Uranus do find common ground – buy the bar or bank, right?! And they can be surprisingly great friends! Off to the patent office, then into production! Futurist Uranus, ahead of his times, chats it up with Saturn in farseeing Sagittarius. Together they get insight how to make things work for current everyday use. Saturn happily follows right along.

Saturn in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries brings a calming, a reasonable sense of responsibility, yet is still spunky in fire signs! Sag and Aries love their independence, so Saturn ordains and protects the function of much needed fast getaways to restore the spirit. There is more leeway with working hours, less hovering to see things get done ‘properly,’ more creativity encouraged! Working with friends is super, same general goals, things get done quickly. Uranus in Aries does split second mid air research that saves time, points amazing directions, is invaluable in making this project stand out above others of the past! Flying consultants in, brainstorming, making new working friendships and alliances is just fun! Have your gifts ready! The company party will be in good taste and spectacular with the computerized light show! Don’t forget to invite your Father’s friend and take lots of px for Facebook!

The May 18 second/retrograde trine Saturn is at 26 Sagittarius, the very degree of the GALACTIC CENTER, the center of our great Milky Way Galaxy, the Sun of our Sun! It is considered to be a stunning source of energy, motivation, and aspiration, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Uranus was the God of the Heavens, rules the stars, in other words, is our galactic planet! Saturn, the planet of reality, simply makes the channel clear for clean transmission and reception!

The last trine with Uranus, Nov 11, eleven eleven seventeen, is the first of the amazing continuous positive string of aspects late 2017 through Nov 1 2018! Do it well; get a good start!

2. Jupiter in social Libra livens up in opposition with Uranus in Aries in the dark of winter. There are choices to be made, who to hang with, go together or stay out of it, independent. There may be separations from friends, and I don’t just mean holiday travels. Letting go has its merits. Meeting new potential partners, business and pleasure, is likely. Negotiating across the table can be done with regard, giving equality, accepting the ways of others, integrating the gifts all bring.

Jupiter opposite Uranus can bring a shocking or super exciting event. Be cautious about flights. Get the insurance, choose an airline with high safety standards and a good track record. Be careful in general. Don’t stray from your group. World events often happen a week or so preceding the date, Dec 26, up to 2 or 3 days following. As much as New Moons are thought to be quiet, they can be a time of intense focus. even loneliness. If leaving your holiday family gathering, you may not be as alert as you think things over, miss them. Keep tabs on your surroundings and the people with you.

This is a significant aspect because it emphasizes matters of the challenging Uranus square Pluto. It is a reminder of happenings since 2010 that remain with us, many taking years to work through. That square returns to a 5 degree or less closeness 11.29.16 to 4.13.17, Uranus then leaving Pluto behind. During that time Jupiter also squares Pluto. That configuration will bring actively challenging Cardinal T Squares and a Grand Cross – Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn. March 7, 22-23 and 28 (NEW MOON Mar 27) will be particularly potent as Jupiter closes on its second square with Pluto exact March 30 at 19 Libra. See more

3. WARNING. Saturn square Chiron blocks or breaks away. The Magi astrologers consider this a sad aspect of loss in relationships, wounding, depression. I have a realistic regard for this one and won’t recommend holiday marriages this year unless you have way above average compatibility, both of you have super progressions and otherwise fabulous transits, and your astrologer arranges the very best possible date and time for you. But good compatibility can be brought down by a wedding chart fraught with long term difficult aspects. Why pick aspects like this when you can do so much better? Classically three of the Holiday Four aspects are difficult and none are traditional marriage aspects. Though the Holiday Four are activating 18 to 22 degrees, and that may not activate any factor in your charts, they are still part of the wedding chartIt will have problems, and that chart is the one for the purpose of your union. If Karma comes calling, and you must do it, then study up on these aspects well. In some ways the tables can be turned; in others, you will do the dance as spelled out.

That said, here are some ideas how to use this square to full advantage. Buckle up. Saturn knows how to prioritize, condense its energy, waste no time, has super focus, puts the right people in the right places to get the job done! Yes! Just like a Surveyor, in Sagittarius, they can locate to the right place within a hairsbreadth, build with confidence! They have the wisdom to pick projects that make sense over time, adding up over the years, future benefits multiplied! Hard work pays off.

Chiron was immortal and suffered a wound that wouldn’t heal. Through that experience he became an adept healer and teacher. In Pisces, there is a wordless compassion, often giving lifelong service to causes to benefit humanity. Chiron is also considered to be an astute business planet. Health spas, hospitals, senior facilities, schools and all their associated functions, working in these ways, as healers and teachers, express this energy well. Building facilities and housing, working in human resources, providing services to your community, are some of the ways Saturn and Chiron can combine their skills and intentions, work together for the greater good.

At the personal level, Saturn may need to learn when to get down on his knees, take a holiday break, leave the work at the office. In Sagittarius the wild card is wanting to run away, procrastinate some. Maybe that’s good, maybe not. But take a look at it. Take care of things that make you want to run away. Either it’s part of life and you need to man up, or it’s time for a change. If you need it, get some support. If you need support in your relationship, get it sooner than later. Save time down the road and don’t let things get beyond fixing. Be proud of your accomplishments and use that as a springboard to mentoring and teaching. Chiron in Pisces may be challenged by the ‘wounds’ of confusion or addictions, fear and escape. Holidays are often a tough time. Do your best to keep stress lower, avoid trigger situations, be with knowing and supportive people, go to extra meetings if you need to. Have your responses ready. Leave if you need to. Eat well, get a little exercise, and plenty of rest. Healer heal thyself. It’s ok to be exactly who you are, exactly where you are at. Blessed be.

If you are well and safe, do some special volunteer work. Get on the road and give some tenderness to others in need. Share your expertise. Serve dinners, scope out the soup line for a mentoree! See how your company can serve the community with its profits. Make those tax donations! What goes around comes around. Plant your seeds well.

4. Jupiter inconjunct Chiron spreads the healing. 

Those of you trained that inconjuncts are bad, have only half the info! For many years I just about shivered when I saw them coming. Divorce was likely because partners were distracted, sidetracked – read stepped out. Uncomfortable things were avoided/ignored, daily things untended added up, causing more stress. Debt was often as finances were neglected, divorce caused extra expenses to both parties. Death was even part of the scenario. People just up and left the planet, lost contact, often unexpectedly estranged, though if you looked way back, you could have seen the signs. In many ways, it all seemed out of our control. Astrologers didn’t use the 150 degree aspect very much when I first started astrology, thinking it was hard to see in a chart, and to this day, it isn’t listed in many astrological calendars, even the Jim Maynard calendars! The other word for it was even weird, quincunx. Time to turn the tables.

Here’s the other half. Rather than bungling through or not at all, be proactive. It’s there, an open link, use it! Jupiter is adept at sizing up potential, eager to check out the sidelines. Detours are often more interesting than the daily ride. With Jupiter in Libra there surely needs to be some reassessments over there! Proactively offer your peacekeeping legal services, coaching expertise, the grace of your ideas and insights. Talk about what you see – both sides, leave no stone, weak spot, unturned. Chiron was a wise Centaur, so ask your questions, commiserate and consolidate! Put ignorance behind you. Whether you go back to the main road, or keep on going on this one, your knowledge is enhanced, good to spread it out as far and wide as possible! Your network expands into a whole new quadrant! You are not alone on this quest. Others will be traveling it as well and you can share what you reap at the crossroads.

[5.] In addition to the above four aspects, there is an almost, very, very close Jupiter sextile Saturn riding along with them. Jupiter and Saturn come closest Dec 28 (Capricorn New MOON) and 29! This, a positive aspect, may also bring up sadness, but deals well with it. See more

These Holiday Four are the first of three aspects each. They end 2016, and are active two more times each in 2017 also. Do your best to do them well. Get them off to a good start; the best results are yet to come!

May your New Year be well blessed.

Mercury Retrograde 2016 Sagittarius Capricorn Astrology Switzerland Switchbacks Furza

Furka Pass, Switzerland, was used as a location in the James Bond film Goldfinger. From Twisted Sifter, LOL!

In some areas switchbacks are a necessity. Retrogrades as we know them astrologically are forward, back, forward. The same degrees are covered three times. They may be in one sign or lap over two signs, the end of one, beginning of the other. This time we have the last two degrees of Fire sign Sagittarius and the first 15, half, of Earth sign Capricorn. Sagittarius is the last fire sign, important for inspiration, purpose. It has the rainbow arc far seeing vision, can be wise; Capricorn is the mountain goat, and together they go!

Gaining ground or getting down! Sagittarius and Capricorn will usually choose up and down switchbacks as they cross country, no fear of heights. Sagittarian long striding legs just want to see what’s up there, see the views! Capricorn shorter legs have the surefooted goatly stamina, love the terrain, the crisp feel of the cool air, a keen sense of achievement, like maybe Everest! Both love a good scramble! Winter sports are grand, and climbing, cycling, skiing!

Each direction and level gives a different view, vantage point. But these are to be observed, incorporated, as we go along. We do get stalled at the 8 day direction change points (retrograde and direct stations), giving us a breather, a time to contemplate, assimilate, gather resolve, refocus. But is isn’t for long. Mercury Retrograde is only one of the simultaneous planetary happenings, and it is swept along, tussled and tumbled, a rolling stone, bumping into others, impelled to share what it has seen and learned. And, of course, it never stopped going forward in the sky anyway! It is a viewpoint that occurs because of the Earth, Mercury, Sun relationship as a faster planet moves past a slower planet. Nor is it unusual, happens 3 to 4 times every year, giving 18% of us Mercury Retrograde in our birth charts – thinkers, fact checkers, sometimes learning difficulties.

Mercury is information matters. What you learn, how you learn, how you communicate. There comes the paperwork and contracts, keypads, computers, cells. Mercury Rx does 180s on you, mixes up appointments, the electronics go fritz, there are often misunderstandings as things change quickly.  Confirm appointments.

The Mercury Retrograde Cycle starts Dec 1. The Retrograde dates are Dec 19 to Jan 8, Christmas and New Year! It finishes the whole cycle Jan 27, 2017. Prepare in advance!

Sagittarius is pretty much a forward moving fire sign, but Capricorn minds the time and makes sensible precautions, does due diligence. Gear and autos are given their maintenance in advance, batteries purchased. They line up experts that may possibly be needed. Timing may be critical before winter storms, so they are mindful of weather reports, choose their itinerary carefully. Consultations are recorded, any changes are dated and initialed. If purchases are made during the Rx cycle Cap gets the warrantee.

Sagittarius is generally pretty confident of choices, but we all know about procrastination when something just doesn’t sit right. Time will tell, and at times, no choice being the choice. Sag matters may be where to move, if to move over the holidays. Those of you with chart factors in the last three degrees of mutable signs Gemini, Virgo, Pisces, or especially Sagittarius, this year, if you can wait, move after Mercury goes forward Jan 8. Have your astrologer do your AstroLocality as soon as you can, and select the best timing for your move. If you must move, get something temporary, wait to get furnishings until it is a more permanent situation. There may also be concerns about where and if to go to school. Stories may change as information is gathered, opinions may morph as we come across better ways. Let it flow.

Capricorn deals with reality. While Mercury is Rx this time you with factors from 0 to 18  in the cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra and especially Capricorn, will likely have the most changes. Capricorn careers may shift – more holiday work, get laid off, or a new job that doesn’t turn out as expected. Stay well rested. Real estate may figure in. If you can’t wait to sell, be sure to use an experienced realtor. You may find yourself given notice to move. Papers about sciences could change, facts repudiated, segments lost. Backup everything as you go! Parental responsibilities, especially of Fathers, may be challenged or mended. Youth or being a senior could be a benefit or cause for concern. People from your past may swing by again. Remember why it didn’t work before, but check in to see if they have new valuable information. Knees, skin and bones need protection, be careful. Breakdowns may happen, the holiday mentals or while traveling. Keep, extra food, water, thermal gear, a space blanket on board.

This rephrasing Mercury brings, keeps our mind working, our attention shifting. Excellent changes and opportunities are possible. Stay alert. It is concurrent with the four outer planet aspects that are happening intensely over only seven days at Christmas time, Dec 24, 26, 28/29, and 31! I’m calling these the Holiday Four, and there is a fifth aspect that is quite close at that same time! See more

Whatever happens, keep the long term in mind, keep an open mind. What may at first appear to be a problem may resolve in an unexpected way that you are grateful for later. Deliberately put Retrograde techniques into your life! Turn around and look back from time to time. Change the level of your vantage point. Look out further than your usual perimeter. Stand still until you really see.

Happy Birthdays, Sagittarians!

Sagittarius Britney Spears - 4 Planets in Sag: Sun, Uranus, Mercury, Neptune

FOUR planets in Sagittarius – Uranus, Mercury, Sun, Neptune! December 2, 1981 Britney Spears has got that friendly Sagittarian smile! She cares about the world. She sings little girl to vixen. Music is her game. See her chart!

She started as a childstar, with continued successes until 2007/8. Drugs, discordancy, divorce, had their toll and she come under the conservatorship of her father (Saturn conjunct Pluto in Libra), lost custody of her sons, and shaved her hair off! Hard times. Forbes June 2010: ‘Not long ago, most of the entertainment world had written Britney Spears off as a celebrity flameout. But over the last year Spears logged the fifth highest-grossing tour in the world, bringing in $130 million in gross box office receipts by playing 98 dates. High-profile endorsement deals with Elizabeth Arden and Candies’ prove that the public expects Spears to stay in the spotlight for good.’

Since then, a true Sagittarian, she has come back! Sagittarians are noted for their resiliency, optimism, faith, hope, getting beyond limitations, being clean. She’s been down, she’s been up. As Victoria Pavlova says, ‘no matter how bad the breakdown, there’s always a way up.’ Plus, besides being a wealth factor, Jupiter in Scorpio specializes in resurrection, is charismatic, great for comebacks!

Britney has won award after award, made glamorous record breaking stats, stunning financial successes, has one of those Hollywood stars in the sidewalk. In 2013 she began the four-year residency show, Britney: Piece of Me, at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. In 2016, Spears released her ninth studio album, Glory.

She was inspired by many, her top three being Madonna, Janet Jackson, and Whitney Houston. Huge stars. She in turn has inspired artists worldwide, with songs now written about her! She has inspired Gwyneth Paltrow’s acting, Trinidadian singer Nicki Minaj, singer, songwriter Lana Del Rey, triple Scorpio Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus, and on and on! At current time, she’s only 34/turning 35 shortly!

Alongside all that Sagittarian, Britney is strongly Aquarian! Controversial. Her Sun sextiles her Aquarian Moon. Her Mercury is conjunct the Aquarian planet Uranus! She’s brilliant, vivid, shocking, and definitely not the girl nextdoor! The world wasn’t quite ready for the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards aired live on August 28. That ceremony is best remembered for ‘Madonna’ kissing ‘Britney Spears’ and Christina Aguilera during the show’s opening performance! The cameras did a quick cut to Britney’s then boyfriend Justin Timberlake. You can imagine….

That same strong Aquarian nature also gives her a strongly philanthropic bent. Britney founded The Britney Spears Foundation to help children in need. The Foundation also supported the annual Britney Spears Camp for the Performing Arts. In April 2002, they made a grant of $1 million to the Twin Towers Fund to support the children of uniformed service heroes affected by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. She has done numerous benefit concerts and donations – for AIDS, Katrina, Music Rising, the St. Bernard Project, Madonna’s Kabbalah-based Spirituality for Kids, cancer charity Gilda’s Club Worldwide, Promises Foundation, United Way and more. She has contributed a good share.

Britney was raised a church going Southern Baptist. Well that all changed when her mentor Madonna came along. They studied the Kabbalah, a form of Jewish mysticism. Hinduism has been part of her path too. It’s possible that Spears took Hinduism quite seriously at one stage, reportedly attending “reincarnation sessions” with a Hindu psychic. And she has had between times, no particular faith at all. Sagittarians are always explorers, seekers.

Here’s the latest! Britney debuted the new music video for her sexy single, “Slumber Party” at midnight on Friday, Nov 18 and it didn’t disappoint.

2016-17 Celestial Highlights!

Orion Constellation Hunter Belt Celestial Bridge Mintaka

Orion is now our evening constellation rising in the East November & December. Its bright stars are Betelgeuse, and Rigel. The Aymara of Bolivia call the belt the Celestial Bridge. The top star is Mintaka, special because it sits almost directly astride the celestial equator – the projection of Earth’s equator onto the stellar sphere. From all over the world, Mintaka rises due east and sets due west, and remains in the sky for almost exactly 12 hours. When it shines at zenith (straight overhead), then you’re at the equator, the meeting place of the northern and southern skies. Thank you, Bruce McClure at EarthSky!

Sagittarius 2016/17 TimeLine!

October 23 started a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that will be the primary aspects of 2017! We have had Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Jupiter square Pluto is ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24!

That aspect leads a set of four aspects in a week that finishes up 2016! It will be a complex and exciting holiday season!

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. We are now in a period of adjustments, rebalancing with our new President. It will be a challenging time for many of us through Nov 2, 2017. Do your best with these six aspects. 2017 depends on it. Choose your battles, stay long term intentional, stay focused and don’t forget who you are.

2016/17 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Sagittarius!

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Perfect! Mid degree Sagittarians will be Pluto’s semisextile next door neighbor. Sagittarius precedes Capricorn, establishing the reason for all of Capricorn’s hard work. Current new perspectives, a new president, will change investment strategies, where you decide to live, how the world sits with the land Sagittarius hikes, rides or travels too. It’s time to come out of Scorpio/Pluto shadow land. Sagittarius will keep us looking up, out and beyond. There are benefits and consequences to be considered. Sagittarius is experienced in choosing wisely at the fork in the road. They have a great time and against odds, live to tell the story!

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Sagittarius is the rainbow arc, arrow in the air, sign. It rises above, and can often choose where it lands. Focus is key. Neptune has seen many rainbows at sea, in the foam on a wave. They have a dream, and Sagittarius can carry it forward, spread the message. There are confused moments when Pisces isn’t sure, lost even, when Sagittarius is scattered, but Neptune is super sensitive, and Sag stands tall to see further ahead. Even if they choose the ‘wrong’ Path, somehow it works out anyway to everyone’s surprise and happiness with unexpected benefits to boot! If Sag has become opinionated, judgemental, Neptune can show a more gentle compassionate side to things.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Sagittarius the roamer falls into step easily having met many unusual Beings. And no one is unhappy when either of them leaves. It’s a given. Uranus in Aries is a bit devil may care, even cavalier at times. If Sagittarius is bold and blunt, offends, it may be a bit crazy for awhile. If Sagittarius puts a positive spin on the over the top strange Uranian ideas or manner, we may have inventions sooner than later. Sag is a natural born educator. People trust them, and Sag has faith in that invention when no one else does. Can be a great team!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. It’s not always easy for a Sagittarian to do traditional business or marriage. But they do understand ethics of committing to a marriage. The right nomadic compatriot, or a partner who is happy to be home base, works. If Chiron invites Sag to a cruise business coupled with imports/exports, super! You can travel the world at home by owning the local beachside bed & breakfast or professoring at a coastal university with students from all over the world! Religious studies, anthropology, anything international has the scope that keeps you humming. It may be time for you to let go of confusion and step up to the plate!

Saturn travels from 16 to 27 degrees of Sagittarius now through Nov 2017. Those of you with your natal Saturn in those degrees of Sagittarius will be having your SATURN RETURNS! Saturn retrogrades over 21 to 27 degrees, so you with Saturn in those degrees will have a three time pass over your Saturn. Some people skip right through their Saturn Returns, others moan and groan, working hard to sort out their lives, it crimping their style for awhile. In Sagittarius it will concern professional matters, life Path choices, education, where to live, travel, religious and spiritual matters, securing your Faith, judgements of all kinds – for and against. Truth and trust will figure in keenly, ethics of blogs and storytelling, publishing. Who you will go with can seem a fateful decision. Take good care of yourself. Own the confidence you have earned, you have already come a long way.

Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof – their praise is well earned and means a lot. Saturn in Sagittarius is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Let that Sagittarian smile come through to ease the way! Knees may suffer from hard long Sag treks, but if you are lucky you may lose some weight around your hips! Be kind to your liver – eat healthy, get regular exercise, drink little alcohol. 

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire in Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Sagittarius wouldn’t have it any other way! Next! Libra loves cross cultural and Jupiter is Sag’s own planet. They have both traveled and could exchange notes, like this could just go on forever. They could travel together; both may support foreign exchange students. They may even have mutual friends and business connections at great distances! Libra is often beautiful, graceful, has superb balance, and Sag has an open friendly style, great at sports! Libra isn’t usually a gamer or better, but with Jupiter in its sign, and a Sagittarian hanging about, a few chances may be taken and some lotto tickets bought and the race won! Oh, and good luck at the dog show!

Happy Birthdays, Sagittarians! May your new year be blessed in every way!

 


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

Sagittarius, PathFinder!

Young Maasai giraffes at play, learning to use their long legs. Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya. By Travel Photographer Matt Wicks!

Young Maasai giraffes at play, learning to use their long legs. Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya. By Travel Photographer Matt Wicks!

Sagittarius – Big dogs, spirited horses, magnificent elephants, mighty moose, far traveling camels, far seeing giraffes!

Sagittarians sport infectious smiles and laughter, a twinkle in their eyes! The verve of one like December 10, 1830 Emily Dickinson: “To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.” Sagittarians have a indomitable vivacious Spirit! When the peddler comes to town, the children merrily follow, skipping and playing! Games will be played. Parents will buy them toys! The entertainment begins and goes long into the night time around the fire, wonderful stories to be told, news to be shared! Some may even follow the peddler out of town, off on an adventure that lasts a lifetime!

Chiron the healing and teaching centaur – half human, half horse, tutored the great heroes of Greece. Among his charges were non less than Achilles, Acteon, Jason and Hercules. Due to Chiron’s accidental wound, and immortality, he suffered greatly, learned about healing in great depth. Story has it as a baby, Aesculapius was given to centaur Chiron, a strange yet wise creature, half-human half-horse, who was famous for his skills in medicine. Chiron brought up Aesculapius and became his mentor. Aesculapius became the god of medicine, the one with the serpent on his Staff.

Whether it is a walking staff or a physician’s staff, it signifies being able to find your way, to live. It points direction, is a Pathfinder, a Seer. It looks far and wide ahead with uncanny vision, makes wise choices. Optimism is natural, a calculated gamble is engaged, and lucky, often wins. A human perspective per Mark Twain 11.30.1835: Nothing that grieves us can be called little: by the eternal laws of proportion a child’s loss of a doll and a king’s loss of a crown are events of the same size. The height and width of Sag vision gives them a greater range of comparison, seeing things side by side that others don’t see at all. Philosophers and Oracles.

The centaurian horse, gives a robust strength, and the ability to travel far and more safely. Having horses was considered a turning point in ancient civilizations. In Africa or India that may be a powerful elephant that can build villages. If you are a hiker it may be your big smart dog protector, its loyalty a special factor! Sagittarians have such a broad experience from their travels, they have a meaningful wisdom.

When Sagittarians choose their work, they focus like a laser! Laziness, procrastination fall away as they become one pointed and don’t falter. They are an inspiration to others who then follow them! When they choose a moral path, a spiritual point of view, they need to be kind. The weakness can be to judge, be self righteous, narrow minded. As judges in courts, they are often famed for their fairness and inclusive solutions.

Sagittarians are not always the marrying type. They need to be able to move around. A travel business, import/export, ministering over a territory, overseas missions, teaching internationally, maybe the Peace Corps, are potentials. They are always hungry to learn more, from everyday basics to spiritual linguistics! Their partner needs to be flexible, and to keep up. Traveling Sagittarians can often live with little to no finances. You need to be comfortable with that, and be able to be uncomfortable at times. Most Sagittarians are fabulously healthy. If there is trouble, hips/sciatica, liver & weight are likely involved. But if you aren’t a Sag, it’s another story. If you have the travelers’ bed and breakfast, a chain of hotels, and travelers come to you, you may be wealthy! Then you can travel in style wherever and whenever you want!

When they do choose a home, it may have a grand view, large, very large windows. A high ceiling is likely, skylights. A broad deck, balcony would do. Casual comfort and nature tones. A meeting space and guest rooms for visiting friends. ThanksGiving is their convivial time of year, and their constellation is also called the Teacup! Don’t be surprised to see trunks and magical covered baskets, art and art pieces collected from all over the world. A library covering the entire wall. Landscaping that takes care of itself, or a ranch with the finest race horses and great dogs!

It’s exhilarating to learn, to travel the world, survive, be inspired! Eyeglasses, binoculars, zoom lenses, telescopes all extend our vision! Take pictures, record videos, write books and blogs, publish the novel you wrote while you journeyed! BE the Guide! Share your savoir faire.

I feel that something’s coming, and it’s not just in the wind.
It’s more than just tomorrow, it’s more than where we’ve been,
It offers me a promise, it’s telling me “Begin”,
I know we’re needing something worth believing in.

— Sagittarian singer Harry Chapin  (Born December 7, 1942)

Happy Birthdays, Sagittarians!

Sagittarius horse lovers, son and mother, the Armstrongs, rescue foal named Texas at Shingletown CA.

A lot of Sagittarians love horses. Travis Armstrong works with Texas, a rescued foal, in Shingletown, California. His mother, Palomino Armstrong, rescues orphaned foals and raises them in her house. Due to the need for regular feedings, Palomino hardly sleeps—and if she does, she has a bed set up in the horse nursery.

New Moon!  Four Planets Sagittarius, Midpoints, Two T Squares!

Tuesday November 29, 4:18 AM Pacific, at 7 Sag 43

Sagittarius New Moon Milky Way Road

The road less traveled. American astrophotographer Aaron J. Groen is the author of a fantastic series of photographs that were made at night amid the vast territories of his native state of South Dakota. See his Setting Supermoon on November 15th, 2016! 

Four planets in Sagittarius! A new moon has a coming together feeling. In Sagittarius Mama Moon completes the 27 day marathon to arrive breathlessly beside Father Sun! Together they survey the vastitudes, sometimes remembering, often grateful and celebrating, sometimes longing, seeing a better way and often how to get there too! Moon rules the feminine, cycles, the mood of the people. In Sagittarius her home might be a camper, the tent she carries, a teepee or yurt. She gives Sun a sweet kiss, he glows and she is filled with Light, ready to go on. Before she goes she tells him how the past is changing, the current news, how the future is becoming. The State of the Union. He has her perspective and is guided to a more on point focus.

  • Saturn in Sagittarius harnesses the forward energy, guiding, holding for best timing, keeping track. No not showing up or running away. Saturn holds you responsible. He is so dedicated he needs to guard against burnout and take time off and away. Where Sag would spend quickly, Saturn sets allotments. Best to keep a party fund too! 
  • Mercury in Sagittarius thinks out of small boxes and past the large ones too! He is so optimistic it’s contagious. Everyone hopes for a better way, a better time. We need that hope and instinctively gravitate to a generous possibility. Surely there is a way! Sagittarians are often taller, so they literally see more of what can be, choose the best Path!

7 Degree Sagittarius New Moon at T Square point with the Moon’s nodes axis, and Neptune in it’s own sign Pisces. The Moon’s nodes span from Pisces in the South, to Virgo in the North. The South is thought to be the old ways, a reservoir of knowledge. Maybe it got a little out of hand and we need to balance with the other sign. A planet at the South helps round out unfinished matters. Neptune in its own sign doubles that potency. There is still a need to let go of fears, addictions, for compassion, a deeper understanding, to put art and music in one’s life, pay attention to visions, live our dream, be who we are as a Spirited Soul. The North Node is so different in Virgo that wants all the beans counted as you go. Sigh. But it’s just another kind of flow. Virgo is extraordinarily present in our daily life. Everything matters. All those dreams can be applied in service to our fellow travelers. Health care, clean daily living, saving time and resources, keeping the focus of why we have that budget. Pisces is water, Virgo is right here on Earth. Both are essential and valuable.

Sagittarius squares Neptune/Pisces. Pisces can be mournful at times, but Sag wants to play and ride those waves, it’s no time to drop anchor! Sag wants to know why that spiritual tenet is true – is it dogma or delusion? Pisces can be illusive and Sag finds it hard to make a connection at times. Sag, who tends to be always on, can learn to sit and be quiet. Pisces is stirred, maybe been sitting too long and it’s time to reconsider. Sag has physical long vision; Pisces has Soul vision. They may agree on the goal but have very different ways of getting there.

Sagittarius squares Virgo. Sag plays, the Virgo North Node works. Sagittarius may help Virgo lift up their head and refocus with the new information received. They are flexible when shown why it’s better. Sagittarius may gloss over necessary details that Virgo points out, and together they sort it out. Immediate necessities in order for long term growth to go smoothly and sooner!

Three Midpoints, two with Mars!

  1. Pluto at semisextile midpoint between Saturn and Mars in Aquarius. Semisextiles are sign to sign, potent, no step missing. They are neighbors, so they know each other well. This set is Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius. Sag has the fiery spirited traveler, Capricorn is the professional, a clever careful mountain goat, Aquarius is the heavens above, a stellar community of Lights! Pluto with Saturn is a cleansing of the stones in our mind, kinda like the ‘between a rock and a hard place.’ Some of what we believe needs restoration, some needs blasting away. Pluto with Mars in Aquarius directs the blasting, reunites fragments to a new structure that works so much better. Pluto in Capricorn gathers the elders; Mars in Aquarius gathers the ChangeMaker evolutionists and leads the charge!
  2. Saturn is sextile midpoint between Jupiter and Mars, both planets approaching Saturn. Jupiter and Saturn are traveling closely, but don’t make their exact aspect until Aug 27, 2017! Jupiter in Libra keeps introducing new people to Saturn, rebalancing long held opinions, encouraging sharing and reforming. See more Mars in Aquarius with Saturn brings new tools to the front. Instead of one working, a whole crew of people bring brilliant expertise, put up new structures quickly, move on to the next! The beauty is you can SEE the change and know it can be done. There may need be some tweaking, but, hey, done! Experiment working!
  3. Pluto and Venus are at the T Square point between Jupiter in its opposition with Uranus! Jupiter made its first square to Pluto only 5 days ago on ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24th! This was the first aspect following the Presidential elections and people have been adjusting to our new President-elect Donald J Trump. Human rights – Jupiter in Libra, financial and health concerns – Pluto in Capricorn top the list. Jupiter will oppose Uranus exactly the first time Dec 26 just after Christmas. Oppositions often separate. Many friends have become estranged after this complex election, with such extremes of vehement opinions. Yet others are staying steady to see how things can be worked out, to find ways to make alliances so differences become assets, to preserve previous gains. There will be some ground sadly lost. Much will be learned about how to explain why something is true, what can be done to negotiate, how to show the value of a different way.

Uranus is key! It’s the outer planet getting the most action.

  1. Saturn squares Chiron, trines Uranus. Dec 24 the trine comes first. Dec 28 is the Chiron square. The square disrupts relationships, businesses, healing processes. There are blocks and breakthroughs. Some will dig in, fearfully holding on. Some systems will crumble from the weight of age and time, allowing us to see new light. The Uranian trine will bring new friends and greater community – seek it, don’t wait. Having this support will help us get through some of the uncomfortable things we must surrender to and work at to have the changes we want for long term. See more
  2. Venus in Capricorn sextiles Chiron, squares Uranus! 20-20-20 Degrees! Sextile Chiron can mean a marriage, successful business, a healing! If a marriage is in the offing, please see your astrologer to see if your chart has good timing. Venus in Cap is realistic, but wants beauty also. Could be the grace of age, lovely stone or glass work, a business that does kind works for our community or guards our Earth. Square Uranus in Aries is a challenge to say the least! Capricorn can be conservative, and Venus there would pride herself in honoring her elders. Uranus is the inventor, disrupts the status quo and can prove the new thing works. Aries is impatient with people who marry jobs or lovers for money or are slow old fogeys that have forgotten they were young once too! If they trample, they may miss the possible support they could gain from staunch citizens that could back their every step. This is a time not to judge a book by its cover! Take a deep breath, calm down, and thank them for the invitation! If the wrong people are forever holding you back, time for a change. Surprising new friendships can be formed if you look about. They have been waiting for you.
  3. Jupiter in Libra is opposite Uranus Dec 26, day after Christmas! Jupiter is reactivating the Uranus square Pluto that has been with us since 2010. See more In Aries, the stellar dust is in a hot Uranian whirlwind! Libra is interested in polar differences. Jupiter asks questions, sometimes blunt and embarrassing. Libra loves politics and competition, Jupiter loves races! Uranus loves in-your-face differences, shocking wakeups, and Aries gets up early, ready to fight for the underdog and freedom! Spread your wings wide, soar high to see the lay of the land, where to best put your energy. There will be lots of change, some surprising outcomes!

You see, it’s a complicated multilayered New Moon! Totally enriching!

Full Long Night Moon! Two T Squares, Mercury with Pluto, Sun sextile Mars!

Tuesday December 13, 4:05 PM Pacific, at 22 Gemini 26

Sagittarius Full Long Night Moon Giraffe Tasting the Moon by Nirvana.K

What the moon tastes like? Sweet Giraffe Art Print by Nirvana.K

Full Moon Gemini – Sagittarius. Good thing it is a Long Night Moon, ’cause these two will chat all night! Gemini has gathered so many tidbits of information, and shares in volumes. Sagittarius has so many stories of its travels it would take a lifetime to tell them all. Anyone listening would be dizzy with the range of exchange, impossible to repeat it all! The Word is out, and the Path becomes more focused as the meaning of the collection starts to shape itself. There is recognition of an underlying trend of the times, the purpose is shifting and the focal point being adapted. It may seem slippery with so many layers, no solid ground, but getting down may be where it’s at! Sometimes it’s just downright fun to not know a thing, let it rip with no end in sight!

Full Moon air and fire oppositions can scatter the leaves to the Four Directions, diffusion is glorious and far reaching. There is expansion, a wider range of contemplation of possibilities and growth. New people pull us into a bigger space, markets expand. It’s all the amazing words on the breezes tickling your Soul, and what they mean and where you want to go with them – importantly, your life work.

Sun leaving Saturn trine Uranus/square Chiron, to sextile Mars! That’s a hefty mix! A brief T Square was made to Chiron. Sun leaving Saturn was a serious affair for about a week and a half. It’s a once a year aspect. Sun adds Light to Saturn. Saturn may be warmed or discouraged, feel praised or all its weakness shown. There can be a lot done proudly, or sadness/depression. One way or the other, there is a reality assessment. Part of the question is what can I do, personally?

  • Saturn trines Uranus exactly the first time in only nine days, Christmas Eve, Dec 24. Saturn squares Chiron the first time exactly four days later Dec 28. Sun just did those aspects, so will carry the energy forward into the sextile with Mars! The Sun trine Uranus is Light on Light, Star to Star! Sun is our Star Light Being; Uranus is ALL the stars, the Lights of Heaven! Sagittarius is the Light of the coals the nomad traveler carried from camp to camp, symbolizing knowledge shared, enLightenment. Uranus is in Aries, in this case, the heavenly candle flame, the Light of each one of our Spirits awakened.
  • Saturn’s square to Chiron is a type of challenge we have about every 7+ years. The old wounds are never left to lie. We get 7 years worth of healing at a time. Though often uncomfortable, it’s important not to miss taking a look. At this time, Sun has leant his Light to see the opening of the door to the next level of healing. Chiron is now in Pisces, matters of the Soul, a psychic hurt, being abandoned or denied, a misunderstanding, an illusion, an unfulfilled dream we carry deep within us – a seeming shameful failure. Sun has made us feel a bit naked in recent days with his light just where we can be the most afraid to look. With Saturn in Sagittarius there is a call to hope, to stop abandoning ourselves! Saturn says you can do it, a step at a time. Be real. You did the best you could at the time. Sun is leading now. He/we saw and we actually can feel better, more of our cards on the table.
  • Sun sextile Mars can be that first step we take! Mars in Aquarius gives an air sign lift, a literal step up! Sagittarius is all for that, they love to jump on things, get a leg up! With Aquarius it may all be a bit crazy! Relief! Sun has got a great big grin on and laughs heartily so everyone can hear and they smile or laugh too! Sports are going to be fun, and some wagers made. See about a new gym membership. Food will be saucy and spicy!
  • Moon backs up Sun, trines Mars. She has the words, the local connections, the feminine side of things to be shared. Her instincts back up the Aquarian intelligence, the quick spirited Mars. In logical air sign, multi visual Gemini, she is less fearful, more quick to respond herself! Oddly she may Mother Mars. In Aquarius he often goes it alone, way out ahead, so may need a little respite. Though they get along, Gemini is forever in motion, and Mars in Aquarius soon sees another challenging front to lead. Moon won’t forget him though, and may continue to support him in her blogs. It’s a new time. He is offering new solutions.
  • Jupiter is less than 1 degree of the sextile with Saturn, but retrogrades just before the exact contact! The influence is there, keep expanding, new relationship are put into play, but the consummation isn’t complete until Aug 27. See more
Venus was with Pluto at the New Moon. Now it is Mercury at the Full Moon! Mercury conjunct Pluto in Capricorn instigates a T Square with Jupiter opposition Uranus! Mercury relinks the Jupiter square Pluto making us remember, putting more words to what happened after the elections, and ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24. It keeps important considerations, resolutions, in mind. The second Jupiter/Pluto is March 30, the third is Aug 4. Mercury with Pluto we are likely to be a tad obsessively thoughtful. Can’t put the good book down. Deeply curious, to discovery or detriment! Words are whispered, backdoor deals made, not everything confirmed. Be cautious of gossip. Be clear but not hurtful if possible. Think of what the consequences of a mislaid sentence might be. Be healing and helpful. Don’t deny what’s real before or behind you. Biding your time might be the wise choice. There can be news of a loss of someone special to us. We might get news of a new cure, or an investment tip. It can be a simple piece of information that makes a huge difference in our life.
  • Mercury square Jupiter echos the Gemini/Sagittarius Full Moon signs. Mercury is Gemini’s planet; Jupiter is Sagittarius’ planet! Where the Full Moon opposition separates, widens the territory, Mercury in Capricorn square, Jupiter challenges the efficacy of the proposal. With Jupiter in Libra, Mercury challenges the people authorized to make decisions. There may be conservative and cultural differences at stake. Mercury in Cap brings facts to the table, but if people just like the good looks, the smile, of the Jupiter Libra reps, a decision may unreasonably swing to their side. Jupiter may exaggerate, and Mercury could bring them down due to lack of credibility. Go easy. In personal or family matters, remember this is NOT a court of law. If you are going to court be careful how you present.
  • Mercury and Pluto square Uranus. Mercury is still 8 degrees away, but Pluto carries the energy forward and is only 4 degrees of Uranus. The main factor is the unpredictability of Uranus in Aries. But always know it is looking for what’s new, especially in Aries, and what is better for the greater good. You may be right, but times are changing as we get more globally educated and connected. In the future, more decisions will be made with the greater good in mind. For example, the Standing Rock situation is not just about tribal territory land rights, but about protecting our water. That affects a lot more land than the reservation.

Venus in Aquarius shimmers in her starry sparkly gown, smiling semisextile to Neptune of the magical night. He is enchanting, she is beguiling, the sweetest thing he’s seen in a long time. She is off to another party; he sailing on the tide. She is a breath of fresh air, the wind fills his sails as he hums in the moonlight. She brings friends to visit, each one unique, stirring his rustling Spirit. He feels wealthy in his Soul for meeting them all. None of them might ever see each other again.

This is the Long Night Moon. Reach for it. Stand tall. Stretch and grow. Taste the Moon.

May your Circle be Unbroken.
