Happy Birthdays, Aries!

Meet Ricardo Breceda, Sorcerer of Sheet Metal!

Aries-Mars Ricardo Breceda Metal Sculptor Borrego

This story is about an artist born in 1962 in Durango, Mexico, no birthdate available. But I’m sure he is Aries something and/or has a strong Mars, the Aries planet, in his birth chart!

Dubbed “the Picasso of Steel,” Ricardo Breceda was an injured construction worker and a boot salesman, but became a renowned artist in ten short years with no previous art training or even an interest in art!

People are awestruck by the beauty and scale of his work, and the way his animals seem so real, the way he fashions sheet metal into muscle and bone, the way he captures motion. One writer says: Breceda believes in motion. He’s almost always in motion. One of those fast-metabolism guys who need to be moving. He’s been that way his whole life. Breceda believes in the can-do attitude. He refuses to set himself limits.”

His dedication is apparent in this story about him by Gordon Lee Johnson!

It’s 116 degrees under the desert sun, so hot even the Borrego Springs horned toads are hunting shade.

But there’s no shade for metal sculptor Ricardo Breceda who’s welding sheet-metal scales onto a 350-foot sea monster.

White-hot sparks pop and blister from molten metal. So much sweat rolls into his eyes, he can hardly see through the welding helmet’s visor. The sun is hot, the metal is hot, the arc welder is hot, the helmet is hot, his clothes are hot.

It’s July, he’s been sweltering for almost three months on this sea monster. “All I can think is — let’s finish this thing,” he says.

Lost in the fever of work, his working delirium is broken by a young man who is yelling at him to stop, and holding out a bottle of water.

“He actually got in my face, and yelled at me to stop. I didn’t want to stop, I wanted to keep going. But I’m glad I stopped. That guy may have saved my life.”

Breceda knocked off, drank lots of water, and regained himself after a few hours, cooling off to continue.

A couple of days later, he finally finished. “Let me tell you, a beer never tasted so good.”

Ricardo has won prizes, there is much written about him. He says “I work hard to get a piece to look alive, to give it a soul.

ARIES 2017 Celestial Highlights!

Astronomy April 10 2017 Full Moon Jupiter Spica

April 7  Jupiter at Opposition. The giant planet will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. It will be brighter than any other time of the year and will be visible all night long. This is the best time to view and photograph Jupiter and its moons. A medium-sized telescope should be able to show you some of the details in Jupiter’s cloud bands. A good pair of binoculars should allow you to see Jupiter’s four largest moons, appearing as bright dots on either side of the planet.

April 10, 2017, see diagram – presents the first full moon of spring for the Northern Hemisphere and the first full moon of autumn for the Southern Hemisphere. The first full moon of the season shines in front of the constellation Virgo the Maiden.

Jupiter stays in front of the constellation Virgo until November 2017.

Don’t forget to make special arrangements for viewing the August 21 Eclipse!

Aries 2017 TimeLine!

October 23 2016 started a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that are the primary aspects of 2017! We have had Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Jupiter square Pluto ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24! The ‘Holiday Four, plus the very close Jupiter sextile Saturn, happened the last 8 days of 2016. 

The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, started the 2017 retrograde set of the SIX aspects in reverse order through May 18. The next of the set is the March 30 Jupiter square Pluto! See more 

We are in countdown days! Many of us have followed the many years long Uranus square Pluto. At times we have been hysterical, held in suspense with bated breath, sometimes enduring, sometimes kicking the traces of old inbred power and mores. Cultural, racial, sexual, gender, economic, environmental and climate change. Primal matters have been on the line, some to the degree of extinction, to changes of necessity for survival. The long time Uranus square Pluto is finally finishing what it started in 2010, its first of seven exact aspects! It is in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17 and doesn’t go back! It won’t be the click of a switch and it’s over. Such long term major matters permeate deeply throughout our layers, to reach subconscious levels of our lives. It leaves us years of work to integrate, to reach a sustainable ability to reiterate our new thinking that gradually has become part us us in a new working order. We simply aren’t the same people we were 7 years ago. The internet and social media have moved things along even faster than in times before. See more

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. It is now opposition Uranus, changes, rebellion! We are making adjustments, rebalancing with our new President. It will be a challenging time for many of us through Nov 2, 2017. Choose your battles, stay long term intentional, stay focused and don’t forget who you are.

Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Aries 2017-April 2018!

Aries Heady RED Hat!

It’s time to surge into your New Year! May there be many grand new accomplishments!

Pluto is just past mid Capricorn through Jan 2018. 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! Aries is FRESH, a sign of the times, even of times to come! Give them the job, they will lead, but get outta their way. They may experiment here and there, taking a bit more time, but the offshoot ideas will be well worth it! Pay attention and capitalize! Aries, be smart and realize the worth of the experience of elders and practiced business men, even if it does remind you of your Father! You may be denied at first, feel blocked, but you can and will do it! If things are too musty, move on and do it on your own, taking the good ideas and sensible guidance with you. You remain independent because it’s your choice to do so!

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! Those of you with chart factors between 12 and 15 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. If your factors are in Aries, it will be the surf of a lifetime! it will be your unpredictable but fascinating neighbor you get glimpses of. There will be curiosity, caution and irresistible inspiration! Pisces insights about you may be tailor made, so really listen though at times it sounds like they are speaking in tongues. Their troubles may call you to rescue them. That may go well, but if it goes on and on, you may inadvertently be enabling. Walk away, maybe check in time to time. Plant your seeds where there will be potent results.

Uranus covers 23 to 29 Aries, brings us to the brink of the sign change into Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the last year of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they are not forgotten. Change worthy ideas need to be highlighted so they are not taken for granted.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a automatic. In Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries is the first to DO it! It takes a lot to make an Aries head spin, and this is exactly what’s happening! At last, a friend who is grateful and keeps feeding you the most outrageous data, inventing daily! It’s their turn to keep up, and that’s rare! Sparks fly and everyone marvels! It’s like Love at first sight, and it works! It may not always be easy, each are quite independent and used to having their own way, but the ideas are bigger than they are separately, so get to work and have an uncommonly good time!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, and like Uranus, also covers 24 Pisces to 0 Aries, entering Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will conjunct any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about the feet. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business.

Chiron is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation and impresses Aries with its immediate insights, whether in love or business, body or mind! When it goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will speed up healing at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance!

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through April 2018.

In Sagittarius Saturn may find his travel budget lacking for the time being, or may find perfect low budget opportunities! Education may need to wait, but is still a good investment as soon as possible. Saturn challenges Aries to pick a purpose and stick to it. Sag travels point to point. Aries is willing to go if it suits his purpose right now. Saturn has his hands full because Sagittarius gets distracted and abandons the local project for something more worthy and far sighted. Aries loves a new cause and believes Saturn to be a good backer, so will go along. Sag can lead and teach. Aries wants more than words, let’s make doing it part of the teaching! Saturn may have to adjust the rules to fit the time, place and situation. Together they may get it done, or the locals may take it up and finish it themselves. Teaching is the core. Aries is satisfied, and like Sag, is ready to move on.

29 year Saturn Returns can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! If you are on your first Return, you may be having substantial career success, marry, have your first child, buy a home! If you are on your second Return, about age 58, you may be thinking of retirement plans, be called to take care of aging parents. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from experienced experts may be just what you need.

Those with Saturn 21 to 29 degree Sagittarius will be having their Sagittarian Saturn Returns. Sagittarians are seers, looking across the mountains, over the rainbow, keenly to the arrow’s point far, far away. Saturn knows that is doable, one step, one board, a brick at a time, the framework will go up. Sagittarius will have their learning place, teaching hope itself. They are optimistic and faithful to the cause. When that one is built or fait accompli, on to the next!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, Saturn might have more work than anybody should, or they are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when they get replacement work that suits them better or they start their own business! Aries loves the perfect fresh challenge of new beginnings, especially independent new beginnings! Thresholds were meant to be leapt across! Capricorn may get tired just watching, and they are hard workers themselves. But things get done. Capricorn needs to watch to be sure things are per specs. Aries may get grumpy it there is smothering supervision. Need to talk this out. If Aries is experienced, give them a free hand. The love department may have delays or hit a dry spell for awhile. Give your body plenty of rest, take time out. Cappies make you think you have to prove yourself, and you do, but there are limits too!

Those of you with Saturn 0 to 9 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns! There will be more traditional endeavors. Take good care of yourself, keep your networks alive. Housing, parenting may be challenging new responsibilities. Age may become a factor, retirement. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! Rules, responsibility, respect for elders is called for. It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Jupiter moves from 13 Libra to 23 Scorpio, entering Scorpio Oct 10.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Aries finds that exhilarating, plus meeting new people, seeing new places! Negotiate personal time while Libra is with other friends so they won’t feel lonesome while you gone. Be back when you say you will be or they will worry. They are ever etiquette minded, and you will learn some good skills that bring several excellent opportunities your way! They will broaden your horizons as they survey the entire territory while you may be focused on one facet of it. But your focus may be perfect for getting one thing done at a time while they are contemplating. Social situations may cause you to gain a little weight. Dance it away!

Jupiter in Scorpio is not exactly an Aries comfort zone. The Underground dimension may visit you, requiring a deeper look at you, your intentions. Seductive, lucrative financial offers may need you to sacrifice temporarily. Things are not completely straightforward, yet certain revelations may compel you to take a chance. You have picked yourself up before and done even better than before. You can do it again if necessary. Or maybe you are older now and feeling less willing just because it’s an intriguing challenge. Unlike usual you may find yourself seeking tried and true advice. The timeframe involved is longer than your usual venue. It may be worth it, or the tunnel cramps your style, you just want it to be over, get back to your stand up mode. An oblique alliance may be formed that you use as a wild card in the future. Stay clean.

If your Jupiter is in these Libra or Scorpio degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition or makes it wildly abundant! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships – loving or leaving.

Happy Birthdays, Aries! Wishing you a #1 Year!


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….

Aries ACTivation!

Aries Sea Serpent Head Ricardo Breceda Metal Borrego

A fire made treasure, that’s our Aries! Ricardo Breceda’s Sea Serpent. This is just the head. The rest of it undulates through the desert sand along behind… Gordon Johnson Photo

If you have never been there before it is INitiation! If you have been there, but inactive, perhaps forgotten, you may need ACTivation! If that’s all going for you, then it may be time for you to be the lead Activator!

Purity is high grade energy, has absolute integrity! Aries rarely calculates or is conniving. They function immediately on auto response, accurately filling the immediate need. It’s a White Diamond Light function. Mind you, they aren’t saints, well, not usually, ’cause they are impatient if you can’t or don’t do the same. It’s no fun if you don’t keep up, LOL!

Red is their other color! They are red-blooded heroes and heroines, love those red trucks, and white cars! Racing in any form, is a passion! To them it is not a gamble, they are just so fast they don’t even think about it. Gets them in trouble sometimes. Other times we are so glad they made it, came to help when they did!

They love the challenge of a catching a good partner. They are adoring fans, roses, new places to go together. But they can leave once the challenge is over. They need a match to their continued high energy, needs to be physical. Biking, hiking, skiing, skating. Speeding somewhere together at the front of the pack suits their Spirits! If you like your sex a bit quick, anywhere anytime, fiery and red hot, you have found your lover!

Being their own boss, having their own hours and business, is perfect for self motivators like them! They may start with nothing and build an empire! A Job that has dramatically different challenges, not routine, works. Aries is innovative, loves being the first to try something new. Meeting new people, possible co investors, delights them. They are terrific sales people. They know what you need before you do! Knives, swords, guns, fighting hold fascination. They have the courage to lead even if it might mean their own death. You will find them at the front working with fire!

Classrooms are a tough assignment. It’s a closed space. Boring to look at, always the same for a time frame as fast as Aries. Assign them to keep it changing. Have different instructors. Blow off the energy on top by riding your bike to work or school! Put in plenty of sports, dance classes before sit down classes. Sitting drives them crazy. Let them stand? Do walking meditations! They will thrive on anything that involves heroes and builds independence. For many the independence of riding their bike makes it their vehicle of choice. Science and mechanics, how things work, especially cars, race cars, will do the trick!

Lean blondes or redheads. Dashing and dazzling demeanor. Fresh. Naive and innocent. Radiant health. They exercise, are generally not readers or TV watchers, don’t sit long enough to eat much. But they can have accidents – cuts, head/eye injuries, road rash, punctures, and headaches and burnouts from too much exercise! They like a clean body machine and aren’t inclined to meds or addictions, unless it’s to or for exercise. Oh, and btw, headgear is primal for Aries! It keeps their mind happy!

Fiery crafts jump start their day! Whether it is creating a mechanical toy for their kids, building a new vehicle, exotic enhancing fuels, making expensive jewelry, glass blowing, cheffing that fine steak or burger, retiring to metal sculpting recycled leavings! It engages their whole being. It’s gotta work, amaze people, and you gotta stay alive while you are doing it! Iron matches their blood and copper is their tone!

Many would disagree with me, but I think of Aries as the Crown Chakra energy center of the body. It’s that White Diamond Light you see on some Chakra diagrams. Their perception of incoming information, connecting with the higher realms, must be clean and clear to quickly save lives when it is an emergency, or to not miss a potent opening, that one moment that could make a difference for the rest of your life! Robin DiPasquale, ND RH (AHG) says ‘The energy of the crown chakra is about opening to the heavens through the crown of the head, connecting with the electrical forces of the universe, and allowing these to flow through the body to join with the magnetic forces of the earth energy in the heart.’

Pink is that blend of White Light and the Red Blood of the Heart of Life. There’s nothing Aries wouldn’t do for you if they could. Most of all, they would like you to be strong. To be able to stand on your own two feet. They want you to try. They will take you places you have never seen before. They ignite your curiosity, show you what’s possible. They scatter seeds with the spark of life wherever they go. They have relentless passion for the Spirit of Life!

Bright White Light, Red Hot Flame, Pink for Pure Love…they love for love itself.

New Moon! Red HOT Five Planets in Aries! Jupiter Square Pluto!

Monday March 27! 7:57 PM Pacific at 7 Aries 37!

Aries 2017 New Moon Milky Way Everglades Controlled Burn Mark Andrew Thomas

Milky Way Fire! A controlled burn in Everglades National Park made for a dramatic Milky Way landscape in this mighty panorama by Mark Andrew Thomas!

x
This is no average quiet New Moon! It has FIVE planets in fiery spicy Aries! Venus/Moon/Sun and Uranus/Mercury! Bob Marley sang it, Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!

Venus/Moon/Sun! Love your Mother/Father, the ultimate family union! Aries flavors that combination potently with independence! It is the sign of newborns and Sunrise! Every day truly IS a new day! Venus is the ingenue, toddler to teen to young person. Moon is child or mother, nurtured or nurturing matron. Sun is teen to adept adult. Aries is forever feisty, aiming for independence, rebellious if given a chance! Sweet faced Venus in Aries loves competition, a good fight, fitness excellence, the chance to be #1! Moon in Aries children are often expected to be independent, sometime fending for themselves at an early age, taking care of the other children. Moon is a courageous Mother, maybe a single Mom doing quite well. Papa Sun in Aries loves to adventure with them all, often has an irregular life style, calls his own shots, an inspiring mentor!

  • Venus and Mars are in each other’s signs! It’s called a mutual reception when that happens. Mars is a key planet because it rules all five planets in Aries! But when planets are in each other’s signs, each ‘rules’ the other. Mars is in Taurus, but Venus rules Taurus, so they are ‘more’ equal in this circumstance! Mars is calmed in Taurus; Venus is more frisky in Aries, not her usually sweet as honey self! Mars might take her chocolates and she says thanks, I don’t really want them, so he eats them himself, LOL!It is said the planets can be transposed to each others signs when in reception. You would read Venus in Taurus where Mars is, and Mars in Aries where Venus is! So it would be Mars by the Moon and Sun, and Venus sextile Neptune! Mars would then be in its own sign, pushing the pack! It would have stirred up Moon and Sun right properly as they passed – offering ideas a mile a minute, encouraging immediate action! Venus in Taurus would pledge funding, her loyalty and perseverance to pursue Neptune’s visions. She saw what was a deep value and knows how to show it beautifully to others. They want some too, right away!
  • Venus is retrograde, inconjunct Moon’s North Node in Virgo. Venus knows going back a bit to polish up some details will make a difference! Virgo sometimes doubts, but Venus in Aries has been there before, and confidently encourages a quick experimental shift in the order. It may not come out as either expected, but each step leads to the next, often with better results than thought possible! See more

Uranus/Mercury! Mercury crossed Uranus the day before, 8:05 AM Pacific on the 26th! This is like greased lightning! The lights flash, instinctual insights, awakening at your fingertips! Pure genius! The order may zig zag like a pinball machine, or go so fast straight ahead like a meteor you barely see it, but it’s there! Mercury always brings a hint of duality; there may be parallels! An astounding Name! Computers, conversations, the internet, communications. Astonishing writing for 3 days, 24th, 25, 26! New ideas. Independence and freedom may take the fore In the name of community, world unity! Remarkable new alliances are possible! Take that step forward!

Mercury trines Saturn the 29th the first time of three. Mercury is now in the first phase of it’s 3-part retrograde cycle, slowing to retrograde April 9. See Double Retrograde! Mercury in Aries is quick and logical, gets right to the point. Saturn in Sagittarius is happy, no wasted time, there’s lots to do! Sagittarius has its opinions and Saturn doesn’t always want the divine order disturbed, but darn if Mercury doesn’t have some clever ideas, including how to get them done and be more productive! There could be a whole new department or affiliate! Definitely worth a listen.

Mercury separating semi-sextile Chiron. Mercury is within minutes of this connection, still aware of the Chiron confidences, an exchange of healing and business nuances that make the drive more potent, the sale more satisfying. This subtlety makes us whole, some of it not able to be put into words. But people can feel it and there is an organic trust emerging.

Mars is separating sextile Neptune in Pisces. Mars, the Aries planet, more gentle in Taurus, has invited Neptune to play along! Neptune’s vision sees the whole Universe, makes love with music! Mars in Taurus acts for the Earth! There is a common sense component that Mars wants to fight for in Neptune’s behalf. Neptune intuitively guides, Mars pushes the plow! We all instinctively want to know why should we, and how does it work. Does it really work? These two can put the model together and demonstrate these important points.

On a daily basis, they can solve irrigation problems, set up fire safety. Sitting, meditating, may never be finer, and that massage was the best ever. You were transported. Your body takes on new meaning as the instrument of your beliefs. Walking the water’s edge shows you a special place within your Soul as you commune with yourself across the textures of time and place.

Saturn in Sagittarius square Chiron in Pisces is with us for awhile. They are less than 3 degrees apart now. Saturn will retrograde April 5 to make the second square April 30. If Chiron is marriage, as the Magi Society says, then this is clearly not a time to set your date unless you have overwhelmingly other favorable aspects and neither of these planets is in one of your love life placements! SEE your astrologer. Saturn can be hardship and sorrows and the old words for Chiron are wounded, healer, teacher. Doesn’t pay to take chances with these two in a challenging aspect with each other. Saturn is career, reputation, fatherhood, age, retirement, what you have earned, laws. Chiron is also thought to be business, health care. They are currently at odds with each other. You can easily see that with current politics.

Archangel Gabriel Sounds His Horn. Ft. Worth, Texas

All of us are making breakthroughs as we hit the wall, face our worst fears, surrender to what seems inevitable! We see what doesn’t work, so we let it go. We turn to find there ARE other ways, plenty of them in fact! And they are doable. We seek other options. There are certain responsibilities we must take; some are not ours to do. No guilt. Some matters need a ton of education. We need to place our seeds in fertile soil, nurture them, give them time to grow in dignity at their own pace. Sagittarius and Chiron the healer teachers are being called. Archangel Gabriel is blowing his horn! Saturn wants the facts that can make the possibilities happen! Sometimes the data counts, tells the real story. We want the Truth, nothing but the Truth….

The second Jupiter square Pluto is exact in three days, March 30! At worst this combo can be mean and bullying, goes to extremes and exaggerates. It can also be our wake up call. The wounds or ignorance behind this behavior need healing desperately. Change conniving and manipulation to dialogue and listening when possible. Otherwise, take real appropriate measures to secure your safety. Jupiter is in Libra, sign of balance in relationships; Pluto is deep relationships. Relationships need reassessment since Venus, ruler of Libra, is also retrograde at this time, making 180 shifts. From one side to the other we find a rooted center ground, can manage the winds that blow by. Pluto in Capricorn, and Venus are strongly about financial matters, and Jupiter makes it a big matter. With Venus retrograde caution is advised. Some changes will need immediate attention, and others will be way better left alone until a more favorable time. An experienced, trusted confidant or advisor is needed perhaps. Health may be challenged, Jupiter at times exaggerating conditions, Pluto taking them to extremes. Deep in the fire then rising from the flames! Compulsive obsessive behaviors need to be held in abeyance. Think of long term consequences and goals to help yourself stay on a good course. We want a greater Truth to prevail. We are rebuilding our foundations, forging a more beautiful future. See more!

This ARIES New Moon is the power that helps us stand true to ourselves no matter the challenge!

Full Pink Moon!

Pluto T Square: Sun/Moon Straddles Jupiter Opposition Uranus!

Monday April 10, 11:08 PM Pacific at 21 Libra 33

Full Moon Pink Lunar Eclipse Rassouli - Journey of Love

MERCURY in TAURUS RETROGRADE yesterday! That means Mercury has been in station, ‘standing still,’ the last 4 days and remains so the next 4 days! Mercury stations are a time of focus, absorbing, mulling things over, stabilizing our mind, paying a deeper attention. As we stand still, if we accept it, there is a calming. Any minute motion is registered. It’s like that time when someone has you be still and they ask you what do you hear? And it’s amazing what is there that you take for granted, or just never noticed before. The world is humming all around us all the time. In Taurus it’s an earthy awareness, organic. Our bodies, what our bare feet feel, the texture of the soil. Beauty at our fingertips, the sounds in our ears, the rustle of the leaves or a tiny insect landing. Take the time it takes to tune in to these special things, and the dear people around us. Really listen. It’s a gift.

This Full Moon is during the Double Retrograde! These first 6 days of Mercury Rx, April 9 – 15, are during the finishing Venus Rx, a DOUBLE RX! See more

This Full Moon embraces FOUR outer planet aspects! It has an intense 5 planet T Square in Cardinal signs, Pluto at the point! See the red triangle in the chart below please. Three of the planets, one at each point, are outer planets, indicating long term effects!

1. Last month’s March 12 Full Moon at 22 degrees activated the Jupiter/Uranus opposition that was then at 21/22 degrees. This April 10 Full Moon straddles the Jupiter opposition Uranus! Both of these Full Moons are keeping the March 2nd 22 degree Jupiter opposition Uranus alive, processing its messages! 

The TSquare set starts with the Sun opposite Jupiter on the 7th! If you count the 5 days before that as an active range, it starts the 2nd! Extraordinary proportions and options! The sequence is first Jupiter, then the squares with Pluto, followed by the aspects to Uranus! The set finishes with a bang, the Sun conjunct Uranus April 13! You can easily allow 3 days for it to settle and things move on to other matters, which takes us to the 16th. This important set takes from the 2nd to the 16th, two weeks. It’s not just a come-and-go Full Moon, it’s a process, an experience that reveals observations and learnings from different vantage points. It is important because it ties to the understanding of the many years long Uranus square Pluto and the current Jupiter square Pluto. Please continue reading….

1a Moon goes through the process more quickly. She starts the same afternoon and finishes the next day.

Moon crossed Jupiter before the Full Moon at 3:58 PM Pacific! There’s a great feeling of optimism about relationships, almost feels like new kin! There’s a camaraderie, willingness to journey, a seminar together. Dance, a symphony or play, a meal together would be lovely, thank you!

  • Concurrently, Moon squares Pluto in Capricorn 6:45 PM Pacific. Both water planets, there is a likeness, a knowing. But in square signs, Moon prefers being above board and sharing in Libra, while Pluto in Capricorn guards the well. There is a formality. It wants control, and confidentiality, may not trust or be trustworthy. Maybe it is time to face the consequences and fess up.
  • She Moon opposes Sun, makes the Full Pink Moon at 11:08 PM. It may be a meet and brief, an intriguing exchange. Aries moves on, leaving a legacy if you are quick enough to catch it. He’s excited, wants to go share with many more others! Libra is left lingering and longing, advocating for new possibilities, lining up the team.
  • After the Full Moon, Moon opposes Uranus in Aries at 4:31 AM Pacific on the next day. There is a break for freedom, a surprise potential! The local social troupe takes wings! Your new friend may already be gone, inviting you to visit or meet soon at a third place!

Though not one of the four outer planet aspects, Mars figures in the T Square too. Moon inconjuncts Mars, Mars is semi-sextile Sun/Uranus. Moon is in Libra the sign opposite Mars’ sign Aries. Moon knows what to do with unruly children and has a tenderness for their courage and that they are struggling to grow up. Doesn’t matter how old you are! She can be annoyed, but none the less tries to instill manners, help them see the effect they are having on others, how a different approach can work to their favor. Mars sometimes needs to grow into these ideas over most of their lifetime. First they must be independently themselves! And Moon in Libra may need to do some growing up in that regard – less people pleasing and more spine! Mars in Taurus has to learn peace and patiences while in the midst of action and conflicting needs! No easy task, but doable.

Mars in Taurus in a semi-sextile, a sign ahead of Sun/Uranus in Aries, can be steady and soothing or feel like a boulder in the road! Mars in this position can be the strength and shelter of an oak tree in the storm, watch for openings, lead and persevere when Sun/Uranus would be distracted, give up, not wait. Mars in Taurus can find Sun/Uranus quite unsettling. Or they may be exactly the provocative inspiration he was needing! Once ignited in forward motion he can be Thor through the massive gates!

1b The Sun moves slower than Moon and provides the two week backdrop for Moon’s blitz!

Sun opposed Jupiter 2:39 PM Pacific on the 7th, making it known there are important differences, some space is needed for both to be honored for their own sake. Jupiter, though flexible, still has its prerogatives and opinions, Libra its own sense of etiquette. Aries isn’t usually as concerned with such sensitivities and is annoyed by all that time such social negotiations can take. Jupiter can get carried away with ceremony, and Libra has to make up its mind, be polite to all parties. Sun in Aries, the great Light of Dawn, primordial, shines in a moment, potently lighting the day, asking no one when or what to do! It just does its business and the rest of the world gratefully complies! Jupiter in Libra can put up shapes and funnels to enhance or commandeer such light, but much of it simply blazes its Path! Light is Light!

  • Sun squared Pluto 5:45 PM Pacific April 8. Feelings, ego, heart and Soul could have been hurt. Sun in Aries, and cardinal get started signs, are generally quick to forgive; Pluto in Capricorn may not. Go gently with disagreements that could have irrevocable effects. Better not to have people feel threatened and dig in. Change may take a lot more work and time when that happens. Admit your own part in things, clean up old messes. Give credit for credit due. Open up your heart and break the chain.
  • The last aspect of the T Square is Sun conjunct Uranus 10:29 PM Pacific April 13! That is a golden wild card! Be different, take a chance, BE a new friend! ONE can be a fabulous number! Many #1s can be the tide of change! Network as far and wide as you can! Invent a unique solution! Be the leader! Extend the invitation! Astounding and glorious! Entirely ALIVE!

2.  This Moon witnesses the very last three days, of being within 5 degrees of closeness, of the long time Uranus square Pluto! It started its first of seven exact aspects in 2010! It has been in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17! Uranus is then leaving Pluto behind, and doesn’t go back! The Kundalini has been released! It doesn’t mean these matters are over at the snap of your fingers, not by a long shot. They are being synthesized within our lives, profoundly embedded, wedged into the most private places. They are becoming a strong network of support we gradually don’t even think of consciously anymore. See more

How far, how wide, how high can you go?!?

3.  Though Jupiter is turning away from Pluto, he is still 2 degrees close, and this aspect is part ot the powerful Full Moon T Square! It is fading, but is keeping the March 30 second Jupiter square Pluto in our attention! There may be a calming, but powerful conditions continue to prevail. Still keep watch for secret agendas and alliances, rights forfeited for lack of resistance, lack of attention, apathy, disbelief that could happen. Jupiter in Libra offers a look at the other person’s side, education and negotiation when people are treated with respect, their differences valued. I repeat, we want a greater Truth to prevail. We are rebuilding our foundations, forging a more beautiful future. See the last paragraph of the New Moon above, and See more!

4.  The fourth outer planet aspect is the upcoming second Saturn retrograde square Chiron April 30! It is already less than 2 degrees.

Saturn square Chiron/Venus. Venus retrograde in Pisces squares Saturn twice, April 8, two days before the Full Moon, and when Venus is not retrograde April 21. There are costs and the budget may not be enough. Love is not what it used to be or expectations are too high. Reconsider values, high priced or a super bargain! Out of work partners may not be chosen. Self indulgence may be curbed. A vow to work more effectively could get the job done against the retrograde odds. Hold off on beauty choices – remodels, wardrobes, elective surgeries, entertainment ventures.

Venus ALMOST conjuncts Chiron! She gets into the 26th degree, makes her station there, but turns forward at 26 Pisce 54, while Chiron is at 26 Pisces 31! It’s very, very close, a whispered invitation, reminder, a presence for several days, can see her, but no consummation. It’s haunting and taunting because Venus is love, and the Magi society says Chiron is the marriage planet! But them squaring Saturn indicates it’s not the time yet, or if proceeded with, a  karmic union weighty with learning. A strong yearning at the time may surprisingly fade away and be forgotten sooner than expected.

Saturn and Chiron are both dedicated. Saturn in Sagittarius wants the knowledge, the faith in futures, commitment that has meaning more than money. It works hard, gets tired and down on its knees at times. It fathers a structure that withstands the storms. Saturn wants good standing as a parent, and among his peers. Chiron is a good business person, and in Pisces makes almost surreal intuitive choices. Saturn and Chiron could compromise. Saturn is practical, and could be more generous than usual in broad minded Sagittarius. Chiron in Pisces wants healing and can understand, though they may not sell out certain beliefs. Work with the things where give and take is possible. Let the rest go for another time. Let the Soul do its work. See more!

There have been tests of faith, need for keeping the long term in mind. Challenges take many forms, different for each of us. Determined mindfulness and steady action bring significant, even historic results. Minute by minute, stay focused on common sense solutions. Tipping points are achieved, thresholds crossed! There will be winning changes!

In gratitude for your profound work.

Rebuilding our foundations, forging a more beautiful future.

The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter in Libra inconjunct Chiron, started the 2016 set of SIX aspects in retrograde, reverse order through May 18. The wildest of the set, is the March 2 Jupiter opposite Uranus!

We are in countdown days! Many of us have followed the seven time Uranus square Pluto since 2010! At times we have been hysterical, held in suspense with bated breath, sometimes enduring, sometimes kicking the traces of old inbred power and mores. Cultural, racial, sexual, gender, economic, environmental and climate change. Primal matters have been on the line, some to the degree of extinction, to changes of necessity for survival. The square is in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17 and doesn’t go back! It won’t be the click of a switch and it’s over. Such long term major matters permeate deeply throughout our layers, to reach subconscious levels of our lives. It leaves us years of work to integrate, to reach a sustainable ability to reiterate our new thinking that gradually has become part us us in a new working order. We simply aren’t the same people we were 7 years ago. The internet and social media have moved things along even faster than in times before.

Uranus has squared Pluto from the Aries side. Now we have Jupiter square Pluto from the Libra side, opposite Uranus!

During these final days of Uranus square Pluto, we have acquired a new president, elected under the auspice of the first Jupiter square Pluto in Capricorn Nov 24, 2017. The square was part of a 5 planet TSquare that day, with slow moving outer planets at each point – meaning it had long term impact! See more. It was the aspect leading up to the Nov 8 vote, and became the 1st exact aspect, the opening aspect, after the Nov 8 Presidential Election! 

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. March 2 it opposes Uranus, changes, rebellion! It can be like an explosion! We are making adjustments, rebalancing with our new President. It will be a challenging time for many of us through Nov 2, 2017. Choose your battles, stay long term intentional, stay focused and don’t forget who you are.

Pluto in Capricorn works with financial and health resources, environmental and animal welfare, which are undergoing dramatic changes. Jupiter’s ‘truth’ and opinions are running the gamut. The tables have turned and the Old Guard Capricorn is protecting and walling in its own. Pluto rules money, old money, oil money. Pluto brings greed, the worst fears of poverty and loss of medical insurances. At best it wants to share and heal, use investments for the greater good.

Libra calls for negotiation, getting to know others better. Jupiter in Libra concerns relationships, social and cultural matters – immigrants, foreign relations. Jupiter calls for the best and highest education. In Libra it often uses examples of daily living, metaphors ~ a way of describing something by equating it with something else. This square is tilting the entire US education system with the appointment of Betsy DeVos. A new balance is being struck.

If this aspect makes difficult connections with your birth chart, be cautious in business, keep your security up to date. Update or make a will as far in advance as possible. See your astrologer for a good date and time. Stay clean in your personal relationships, wait to marry. There may be lack of funding for school, the school, curriculum or instructor you wanted may not be available. Though a challenging time for education, it may need to be done anyway. Make the best of what you can.

Librans, mind your kidneys/sugar. Capricorns, take it easy on your bones, teeth and skin.

The third Jupiter square Pluto will be Aug 4, 2017, preceding the Aug 7 Lunar Eclipse. If these squares aspect your personal chart, pay attention now so you can do your part in how it plays out. Challenges can be sorted out. Set your goals for then about these specific matters.

Good news, bad news, complaints and lots needs fixing! Let’s roll up our shirt sleeves and together do what it takes! The work continues. Never give up.

Venus Mercury Retrograde Zion Angel's Landing Walters Wiggles

Switchbacks at Utah’s Zion National Park, Angel’s Landing, Walter’s Wiggles! If we are going to do two retrogrades in a row, and overlapping – both at once for a week, whether descending or ascending, we might as well do it elegantly in great Beauty!

March 20 Note: Venus has been retrograde since March 4. Mercury starts Rx during Aries, April 9. Venus goes direct April 15. The DOUBLE RX is April 9 to 15!

For your advance planning ~~~ trips, moves, weddings, significant purchases, remodels, elective surgeries, investments, taxes, job changes or reviews. Venus involves your love life, money and values, art and beauty. Mercury typically has to do with signing papers, snafus of all sorts, appointments, mind changes, reversals, breakdowns, electronic failures. Retrogrades have three parts. First is the time the planet goes forward. Next is the retrograde period when it goes back over that same ground. Third is when it turns Direct, forward, and goes over the same ground the third time. Often, having a change of direction, extra work to accommodate the changes, delays, drives us crazy. Given time, from the different vantage points, and as other planets move along, we see the values in these adjustments. Without switchbacks or retrogrades, sometimes we might never reach higher ground had these events not have happened. New vantage points show us how to incorporate new facets in our lives.

Venus Retrograde

Venus sweetens from 13 Aries 8 back to 28 Pisces 54! The whole three part cycle starts Jan 30, finishes May 18 with Venus Rx Mar 4 to 15.

Venus does make beauty and kindness, money and love. Retrogrades make changes, omits, misunderstandings, mistakes, adjustments.

Venus in Pisces dreams, commiserates and blesses, is music, magic and miracles, lives for the beauty of Soul. Your understandings, beliefs and desires will shift, can even take 180 different positions and return back to your original position even wiser! The idea is to flow with the tide, rise and fall with the swells of life. Be as whole as you can, make Magic as your insights and visions carry you forward. Pisces can be a gentle sign, or the deluge of a tsunami! If things come too fast it could be scary confusion, feeling lost. Lay back on sugar and carbs. Avoid overindulging in social drugs, alcohol; arrange to have a trusted friend to see you safely home. Water sports and businesses, especially related to the ocean, can make significant changes, select new teachers.

Venus in Aries wants what it wants, now, and takes the action needed to get it! They love being first, prize being leaders, are quick super athletes, are great dancers, put in stunning performances! During the Rx you may find your style changing as to how you do these things! The warning is not to overdo it, be careful not to hurt your head or eyes. Sweet hot sex if you’re lucky! But have that sex with your established partner. Many don’t recommend first time sex during Venus Rxs. There is a quality of rebellion and you could get in trouble with dares. You may not get away with it this time, so please be careful, and try not to break the law in front of the officer!

Aries is often impetuous, but most astrologers would not pick anytime during Venus (love and marriage) Retrograde to get married, elope. Only if the compatibility charts were exceptional, both parties have exceptional progression and transit aspects at that time, and the marriage chart is chosen for the best aspects it can have that also are in splendid harmony with both birth charts. Otherwise, some unions are karmic and will be as they are.

Mercury Double Retrograde!

DURING Venus Retrograde, Mercury starts its Rx cycle, and part of its Retrograde time is during the Venus Rx time! So we have a double Rx April 9 to 15! This is a wee bit of a complicated time with two overlapping cycles and Venus and Mercury each changing signs as well. Mercury will move through 24 Aries 15 to 4 Taurus 50. Mercury is Rx April 9 to May 3.  It makes sense to see your astrologer for details about how this activates your personal chart.

At the time of the double Rx, Venus will be in Pisces, Mercury in Taurus. The degrees are not close, so they will be operating independently of each other. That means in two different houses of your personal chart, possibly even four houses, will be activated. They may act together for you depending on the personal linkage of your planets.

Mercury in Aries is quick to see what’s happening, often distracted, maybe jumps to conclusions, or it’s all in your head. Its speed can save lives, tilt the world in a new direction, blitz by old hurdles! It can be impatient, angry, get down to head butting! Get going or get outta my way, but mainly it just wants to do things! It is a leader that inspires confidence! New projects may finally be undertaken, or fail because they are ahead of their time, there are more considerations than realized. Plant your seeds then plant more seeds! Caution signing papers, even if an expert advises it. This is likely not the time to be impetuous. If you are never impetuous, maybe you should give it a try! Do your best.

In Aries it is very likely not the time to do electional face surgery, elope, buy a new car or mechanical items. If you can wait, fix the furnace or air conditioner later. Be careful about head bumps, your brain/skull, eyes. Put in fire alarms well before the retrograde.

Mercury in Taurus takes its time, maybe too much time, but is the most stable of these four combinations. Sometimes it resists change and is thrown off by shifts in routine. Yet, if Taurus has become tired without realizing, changes may be just what the Dr ordered! Your land may change, your garden, your flowers, trees – earthy things. Taurus is your neck, throat and thyroid. If there are any questions, have a checkup in advance, especially if singing or entertainment is important to you. In general, Taurus is ownership and a solid untouchable bank account, but what we want may surprisingly change during this Rx. A generous gift may be expected and you might have a dilemma about what, how much, or whether to give.

If you make investments, do only test amounts during both retrogrades because Venus (money) is Taurus’s planet. Your thinking about what is attractive can easily change. Not a time to buy a new wardrobe, furnish your home, do a remodel or buy a comfortable car. Whatever you buy, get receipts, buy from well standing companies with excellent return policies, get the warranty. If you sign papers include a review clause so it can be changed, canceled or extended within a reasonable time. You set the time for your next job review time.

Happy Birthdays, Pisceans!

pisces-swimmer-ron-collins-tampa-bay-dirk-shadd

Ron Collins at sunrise Thursday in Tampa Bay at North Shore Park after his morning swim at North Shore Pool in St. Petersburg. Wonderful image by photojournalist Dirk Shadd! See http://dirkshadd.com/portraits/athletes-everyday-heroes/ 

Can you believe a Taurus man, May 4, 1962, is an ocean swimmer hero?! Ron Collins has Neptune, God of the Sea, opposite his Sun and has an amazing relationship with the sea! Jupiter and Chiron are in Pisces, trining (blessing) that Neptune, sextiling his Sun! Ron says, “Next to my family, I love swimming more than anything else in the whole world.”

Ron was named a US Masters Long Distance All-American in the 30-34 age group in 1994, and has won Florida open-water events in Jacksonville, Key West, Melbourne, Lake Wales, Lake Weir, as well as a national championship event in Charlottesville, Va.

He was elected Sanctions Chair for the Florida LMSC in 1996. In 1997, he helped organize the first Tampa Bay Open Water Challenge, a 3.5 mile swim across the bay to help raise money for the environmental group BayWatch whose purpose is to protect and preserve the Tampa Bay estuary.

Ron is the first man to swim the 24-mile length of Tampa Bay, two and a half miles longer than the English Channel! Today that race, directed by Ron, is one of the world’s longest marathon swims, and is held annually in April, in celebration of Earth Day! After the Tampa swim, Ron wanted to complete the third leg of ocean swimming’s Triple Crown! That third leg is the 20-mile crossing from Catalina Island to the California coast. At that time, only 40 had ever swum the English Channel, Manhattan Island and Catalina.

He had completed longer swims — 28 miles around Manhattan — and more famous swims — the English Channel. But this would be the most dangerous. His planned route would put him right in the path of migrating great white sharks. At night. When it’s hard for the sharks to distinguish a seal from a swimmer. The water was a cool 59 and 61 degrees.

Well, he didn’t get eaten but he didn’t make it either. 2 Miles from shore the paramedic called it. He didn’t remember being hauled out of the cold water with hypothermia. But, of course he aimed to try again in warmer water conditions! Taureans don’t give up!

Sep 10, 2013, at age 51, he did it! Ron Collins became the 78th person to complete the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming! Fellow swimmer Randy Nutt says, “Some people are dreamers [Pisces], others are doers. Ron Collins is both.”

Keep swimming, Ron!

Pisces 2017 TimeLine!

October 23 2016 started a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that are the primary aspects of 2017! We have had Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Jupiter square Pluto ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24! The ‘Holiday Four, plus the very close Jupiter sextile Saturn, happened the last 8 days of 2016. 

The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, started the 2017 retrograde set of the SIX aspects in reverse order through May 18. The wildest of the set, next, is the March 2 Jupiter opposite Uranus!

We are in countdown days! Many of us have followed the many years long Uranus square Pluto. At times we have been hysterical, held in suspense with bated breath, sometimes enduring, sometimes kicking the traces of old inbred power and mores. Cultural, racial, sexual, gender, economic, environmental and climate change. Primal matters have been on the line, some to the degree of extinction, to changes of necessity for survival. The long time Uranus square Pluto is finally finishing what it started in 2010, its first of seven exact aspects! It is in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17 and doesn’t go back! It won’t be the click of a switch and it’s over. Such long term major matters permeate deeply throughout our layers, to reach subconscious levels of our lives. It leaves us years of work to integrate, to reach a sustainable ability to reiterate our new thinking that gradually has become part us us in a new working order. We simply aren’t the same people we were 7 years ago. The internet and social media have moved things along even faster than in times before.

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. It is now opposition Uranus, changes, rebellion! We are making adjustments, rebalancing with our new President. It will be a challenging time for many of us through Nov 2, 2017. Choose your battles, stay long term intentional, stay focused and don’t forget who you are.

Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Pisces 2017-March 2018 !

Pisces! Dolphins surfing South Africa - image by dolphin lover Greg Huglin!

Dolphins surfing off the coast of South Africa by Dolphin lover photographer Greg Huglin!

Get up, get out, frolic, exult in your habitat, joyously leap into your new year!

Pluto is just past mid Capricorn through Jan 2018. 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! Pisces, the last sign, is not so concerned with concrete and finances, but is entirely interested in how they are used! A hospital, temple, theatre, an art school, are places where we all are healed. Nonprofits are funded and sustained. Change fear and greed to safety and the joy of abundance to give. Be visionary with your conversions from old stunted places to the dreams of a better world.

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! 2017 to March 2018, those of you with chart factors between 11 and 14 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. If your factors are in Pisces, it will be potent through and through! For some there will be supreme denial, for others it will be the profound experience of a lifetime. Neptune takes 168 years to do the entire circuit sign by sign. So this is it! Let your feelers tingle, your Spirit soar and be still to the point of invisibility. Feel the tides of life, sometimes cruel, sometime ecstatic with love beyond mortal words or understanding. Feel beauty shimmer through you, a rainbow of fusion.

Uranus covers 21 to 28 Aries through March 2018. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a automatic. In Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries takes action! Pisces flows, where Uranus in Aries is ziggy and darts! Pisces can make a space for this whirlwind, embraces the magic of the mix! Art is tweaked, computer conspired! Old acceptance, compliance, is not encompassing enough. Visions, rather than asleep in dreams, have become the action of leaders and champions! What was once strange is now a new standard. Astonishing new friends carry you along with them!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, and like Uranus, also covers 21 to 28 degrees. Chiron will conjunct any factors you have in those degrees in Pisces. If it be you have Chiron in those Pisces degrees, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about the feet. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Pisceans will likely think they do deserve more and wonderful, and they with their intuition make superlative life and business partners!

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 8 Capricorn now through March 2018.

In Sagittarius Saturn may find his travel budget lacking for the time being, or may find perfect low budget opportunities! Education may need to wait, but is still a good investment as soon as possible. Saturn challenges Pisces to pick a purpose and stick to it. Sag travels point to point, but Pisces intuitively wanders. Saturn has his hands full because Sagittarius gets distracted and abandons the local project for something more worthy and far sighted. Pisces, all water, flows where there is the greatest need. Sag can lead and teach, Pisces quietly encourages and inspires from behind the scenes or on stage with the sounds of the angels of heaven! Saturn may have to adjust the rules to fit the time, place and situation. Together they may get it done, or the locals may take it up and finish it themselves. Teaching is the core. Pisces can put it on film. The legacy is bestowed.

29 year Saturn Returns can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! If you are on your first Return, you may be having substantial career success, marry, have your first child, buy a home! If you are on your second Return, you may be thinking of retirement plans, be called to take care of aging parents. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from experienced experts may be just what you need.

21 to 29 degree Sagittarians will be having their Sagittarian Saturn Returns. Sagittarians are seers, looking across the mountains, over the rainbow, to the arrow’s point far, far away. Saturn knows that is doable, one step, one board, a brick at a time, the framework will go up. Sagittarius will have their learning place, teaching hope itself. They are optimistic and faithful to the cause. When that one is built or fait accompli, on to the next!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, Saturn might have more work than anybody should, or they are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when they get replacement work that suits them better or they start their own business! Pisces can be very helpful, sensing the way, recognizing the thresholds. There will be preservation, building for long term results. Pisces understands fate, dharma – the work of the Soul. Archaeological antiquities call our Soul to remember who we were and the great efforts made to celebrate and commemorate accomplishments that stood the test of time. We are reminded to carry on that beauty, be immortal. Though Pisces is total osmosis, it can also long for a magical water bowl to live in, to define it, to be able to look up at the stars on a clear dark night.

Those of you with Saturn 0 to 8 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns! There will be more traditional endeavors. Take good care of yourself, keep your networks alive. Housing, parenting may be challenged. Age may become a factor. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! Rules, responsibility, respect for elders is called for. It’s a time to honor.

Jupiter is now in Libra. Oct 10 it travels into Scorpio, goes up to 23 degrees March 2018.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Pisces observes, often wanting a quieter venue, wanders out into the garden to sit by the pond. A misty day suits them. They can dream and let thoughts coalesce, rise to consciousness. Libra draws them out of themselves and Jupiter, if clever, introduces them to the gift of other Souls that lead what Pisces believes in. The musician, artist, seagoer, temple sitter, water athlete. Jupiter assures them both that through some of these connections we can change the world. Libra keeps it from getting too boisterous and protects Pisces from being overwhelmed. Pisces reaches back, so gently you have to watch for it, to thank, and let Jupiter know their response may be gentle, but very caring and it means a lot to them. Jupiter in Libra doesn’t need to work so hard to make an impression…

Jupiter in Scorpio is easier for Pisces, they are both water signs. They could collude or they could collaborate! Scorp likes its secrets and confidentialities; Pisces just likes quiet at times. But Jupiter likes abundance and Scorpio is the corporate ticket! He sees that Pisces could use a little more money and Jupiter wants education, so funds the amazing Pisces dream. Just like that, they are in business, much to Pisces’ surprise! What?! Aw, heck, and it’s fun! It was getting a little boring anyway. So they travel a bit, get ideas, talk with the accountant. Jupiter in Scorpio can manage things adroitly, isn’t afraid, and is tireless. What a lucky adventure! Another plus is Pisces may be healed of things only a blunt Jupiter could tell them about, and Scorpio is no stranger to cleaning up messes, LOL!

Happy Birthdays, Pisceans! Keep the Lights ON!

Pisces Dreams, Visions, Miracles!

Pisces! An average day.... Geometry of the Soul by Andrew Ostraovsky

An average Pisces day….   Geometry of the Soul by Graphic Designer Andrew Ostrovsky

Immortal unity. Life after life the Soul coalesces our experiences, continues its expression and searches the far reaches of all Being. Fusion incarnate. Micro to magnificent. All and nothing at all. Primordial, aboriginal. Destiny beyond mere belief. Conception far beyond intelligence.

Pisces belongs to all and belongs to none. They may wander off to be where they are needed. They may need quiet, a free zone to contemplate, recenter at a new level. They belong to all because they feel every nuance, how we are all connected, or not. They are chameleons and shapeshifters, trying on many forms. Those sad eyes they sometimes have are the expression of their deep seated compassion. They see.

As children they need safe space. Good or bad, they take it in, become it. Give them light, clean beauty, gentle music, a kind environment that encourages their extra perceptions. Later that ability will be their creative gifts – the film, surreal designs, a symphony of sounds, the merging of a magical range of talents.

8-5 is not their schedule. Their capacity is greater than being a bird in a cage, a jewel cut and put in a setting. Their ocean of Spirit flows with the tides, sun swept or with the Moon and stars! There are times to rest and float anywhere to nowhere, or take off when the surf’s up!

Health can be fragile, or strong like the mystical whales! It can be leaping like a dolphin, or dreaming in hospital, tended by other Pisceans who understand your reason for being there. Might have been them. Dancers take special care of their feet. The right shoes are important! Piscean health is as much physical as in their minds and spirit. Fear, boredom, continual verbal abuse, gloomy surroundings wear them down. Escaping can take many forms, but it too is dispiriting. Right work is life saving. It must be work that means something, saves the world and helps each other.

Love scintillates like a sparking sea in a light breeze! It is as live as it can be imagined. It can be so real, intricate, so finely fitted you become One with the other. It can cross the aeons, lifetime after lifetime. Across continents each knows what the other is doing! We can love because we care for all Beings. Love can be pure Grace.

Miracles for a Pisces are more a verb than a noun. They are like breathing, innate. They are something you do and happens all around you naturally. You are often in the right place at the right time to meet someone special. Spontaneous healing is expected. Knowing who’s calling, you open the door to find them poised to ring the doorbell. You wonder how someone is you haven’t seen in a long time and they cross your path that day or quite soon. You could write those off to coincidence, but then there are the things that happen that the best authorities claim can’t be done, yet they happen to you more than odds against chance. You could say it is just telepathy, but then that’s not supposed to happen either, but it does.

Many a young Piscean gets talked out of these experiences, they are explained into oblivion by less endowed people, people who love them. But down the road of their life, they get stronger in their own Being. It takes time, but they learn to trust their precious impressions. At first it is fleeting, but over time, it’s more than a glimpse, they get it! Those impressions save them time, they know the truth, can be immediately helpful at crucial times. It makes all the difference in the world. They don’t always know where they are going, but they know they need to get there! The ultimate trust.

You are in good company as a Pisces. The magician Albert Einstein, the mad and alluring Elizabeth Taylor, versatile Glenn Close, innumerable excellent actors and actresses, wild Sir Elton John, consummate artist Michelangelo, psychic Edgar Cayce, iconoclast Jack Kerouac, modern man Steve Jobs. Classic Pisces quotes:

“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”
— Albert Einstein

“Dreams are today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions.”
— Edgar Cayce (four planets in Pisces – Sun, Venus, Saturn, Mercury!)

New Moon Solar Eclipse!  Five Planets in Pisces, Three in Aries!

Sunday February 26 ANNULAR SOLAR ECLIPSE! 6:58 AM Pacific at 8 Pisces 12!

Pisces Annular Solar Eclipse!

Though we North Americans won’t see it, it’s gonna be a beauty! In Pacific zone we will simply have a sunrise as usual, not ‘seeing’ the Moon since she has her dark side to us. More at Sky & Telescope

Pisces brings us a profound New Moon Solar Eclipse! There are 5 planets, a stellium, in Pisces – Mercury, Moon, Sun, Neptune and Chiron! Pisces can see the sorrows, what needs healing that the Soul requires. There is the deepest compassion that music is born from. Magnificent performances, art, touch our hearts, we want to help. Magic and miracles happen, meditation unveils the mysteries. Dreams beget stirring insights, reawaken hopes. Solitude allows a rest to the depth of peace. Dancing moves our feet, we join our talents in new directions with kindred beings. We heal our selves and save others at the same time.

Mercury rules two signs, Gemini and Virgo, both logical. In Pisces they merge, logic and intuition. Mercury takes notes, gives words to previously unnamed perceptions, misunderstood precepts. There may have been caring that was never spoken. Now a door is open.

Mercury is very close to the South Node of the Moon, thought to be a point of our past lives where we overdid it. Mercury, ruler of the sign the North Node, Virgo, is very fitting here since there are deep matters to be thought of and spoken about, reorganized, rebalanced, applied to the services we aspire to perform. Mercury names the old nemesis out loud, and by so doing, a lot of fears are instantly dispelled, secrets of failure released! Mercury likes to play with thinking, enjoys a kaleidoscope of possibilities, is not generally seduced by myth. They can blend old talents with our current potential that we have grown to be able to do!

SOLAR ECLIPSE! Moon can be ever so gentle in lending her support to Father Sun. He shines, but she enhances his power of seeing where to direct his energy. His focus increases to the deepest fathoms, putting light in abandoned places not used to being looked at. Now that we see what the trouble is, we have a chance at resurrection. In quiet time together he tells her his doubts, she loves him no matter what. He is restored, his heart swells. Nurture your Self this tenderly. An Eclipse is a direct lineup, the energy transmitted precisely!

They are with Neptune, Pisces’ own planet! Blind or visionary, both are ways of seeing. Close your eyes, see within. Hear the sounds of your own breath, your heart beat, the blood moving through your veins. Know that you are a supreme crucial part of divine being of all Souls. We are One. Forgiveness and blessing always. Our exquisite sensitivity impels us, we know what we need to do. There is natural gravitation, a remembrance, activation of the sacred wellspring within us.

Venus is slowing to retrograde March 4. She semi-sextiled Neptune Feb 22 for the first time. She makes beauty, which Neptune appreciates for he makes beauty so many ways, from the ocean, its creatures and plants, to the Soul, Spirit. Venus in Aries calls for a living active livening beauty, to live for it! Venus calls for love and affection, kindliness. Neptune responds because he is the planet of compassion. While Pisces is more all encompassing, Venus is right here, on the spot right now! She reminds the old Master of current predicaments and how inspiring the challenge can be, needs his council by her side.

In this chart, Chiron leads the way. In Pisces it is the Soul healer. We are called to move through our wounds, and through that healing, teach others by our experiences. Each relationship has meaning, disappointments and blessings. Each comes when we are ready for the next level. We see from different vantage points, a wholeness becoming. In turn, all the skills we gain bring us to more satisfying life work, giving our best to companies and causes, true contribution.

In addition to Pisces, the last sign, there are 3 planets in the first sign Aries – Venus, Mars in his own sign, and Uranus! Venus in Aries loves a good fair fight, is competitive, adores challenges, and can be sweet about it, but stay nimble, she’s quick! Mars is passionate about causes, independence, heroic rescues, doesn’t wait! And he is within a few minutes of his companion in Spirit, Uranus, the futurist who prefers freedom! Though each often work alone, if they gather the troops, no telling what can get done, faster than the blink of an eye! These three are winners!

Mars conjuncts Uranus 4:17 PM Pacific! In old fashioned practical terms we warn to have caution with this aspect! Especially with Mars opposite Jupiter 6:24 AM Pacific the next morning! Mars is impetuous, rebellious, easily provoked, sometimes over assertive, arguments can ensue, accidents can happen. Uranus is famous for sudden events! While Mars is runners, bikes, vehicles, Uranus is planes, electronics. If you don’t feel like getting on the flight, don’t. Uranus is at times absent minded since they are great thinkers. Keep track of your friend. Jupiter in Libra is so social and not wanting to hurt your feelings that they may get in over their head. Or they are opinionated, overconfident, so trusting, telling such a great story, that they miss the signals. And, with all that PIsces, there can be a lack of focus or attention. So don’t get lost, and please don’t stand with your back to the curb, get help if you need it!

Barring the accidental possibilities, Mars and Uranus are opposite Jupiter retrograde in Libra. Mars and Uranus in Aries are fast as lightning! They aren’t waiting around for civility or amenities! But Jupiter has their attention and makes such good Libra connections, they would like to meet those people too! Jupiter is excited to see such an unusual combination, and realizes that sometimes you just have to call it what it is and keep on moving to levels where more can get done without constraints. There is a balance being sought by Libra, well traveled Jupiter wants a generous perspective. The nature of oppositions has a Libra scent, planets wide apart yet bringing good things to the negotiating table. Just remember, these are intelligent planets and signs, so get to it promptly and don’t miss the window!

Though retrograding away, Jupiter is still close in the sextile with Saturn in Sagittarius, many thresholds. Jupiter has been consulting with Saturn the Builder. Jupiter has grand ideas and Saturn is good at grounding the planning in a timely fashion. If school comes first, or learning certain skills is required, then that’s first or alongside the early parts of the project. Jupiter is going away to think on his own, without Saturn’s censorship and to learn more from others. But Saturn’s practical advice is well kept in Jupiter’s thoughts. Saturn awaits his return, building in preparation because he knows the good things that can happen and wants to be ready. They rejoin closely July 29, become exact Aug 27.

Saturn holds the degree of the GALACTIC CENTER, transmitting from 26 Sagittarius! It holds this degree from Feb 18, the day the Sun enters Pisces, to March 6. Jupiter opposite Uranus is within that time, on March 2! The GC is considered to be a profound point, the hub of our galaxy that connects with other galaxies! The Galactic Center is considered a Galaxy Gateway, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Keep an open mind!

The upcoming outer planet Jupiter retrograde opposition Uranus March 2 is the backdrop aspect of the entire chart. This Eclipse, New Moon, is the preparation for the opposition of these two amazing planets! Jupiter is the old Fame and Fortune Planet, abundance, expansion, teaching and travel. Uranus represents awakening, evolution itself, the genius of group action, the Internet, outer space, flight and friendship! Opposite signs represent bridges, collaborations of offerings, exchanges. Make it so.

Keep learning and serving, stay true and steady in the Light!

Full Worm Moon!

Four Planets in Pisces! T Square; Sun/Moon with Jupiter Opposition Uranus!

Sunday March 12, 7:54 AM Pacific at 22 Virgo 13

Pisces Full Moonrise Towers Beach June 23, 2018 by Kyle Grantham

Full Moonrise at Towers Beach at Delaware Seashore State Park on Sunday evening, June 23, 2013 by super photographer Kyle Grantham of Wilmington, Del.

Four planets Pisces!

Neptune remains as spiritual placeholder, marker, but he isn’t standing still exactly either! Venus in next sign Aries is enticing him forward, showing him how sweet it can be, that new ideas really are worth it! The Old Man of the Sea is inspired and he has the wisdom needed to support the adventure! Venus is now retrograde at 11 Aries semi sextile Neptune. Venus crossed that position Feb 22, retrograded across it YESTERDAY, Mar 11 at 5:53 AM Pacific! The third passage is May 19 at 14 Pisces.

Mercury in Pisces was with Chiron March 10. He gathered some magical wisdom from teacher Chiron; Chiron got some up to date information! Sun is now closely with Chiron, exact March 14. Sun lights the way, shimmering through the mists of time, warming the morning, waking us from slumbers of the Soul. He gives us courage to try out our dreams, carry the healing forward. Chiron offers insights about relationships, the businesses we do together that sustain us in our daily lives. Sun enlightens us to choose from the heart, be dedicated in Spirit to the Light of Life.

Virgo Moon is listening and watching keenly since nursing, tending and accounting are her talents. She observes Chiron’s transmission, Mercury’s (her planet) reception into the data banks, Sun’s guiding to where the light is brightest! Sun may be very gentle in Pisces and seeing that, Virgo is shown how to be critical, but with a kindness she may not have ever known herself. She too is lighted and grateful. She can take all that in, organize, find a system of expressing it so every one of us can be uplifted.

Just preceding the Full Moon, Sun inconjuncted Jupiter the 11th, 6:18 AM Pacific Full Moon morning, Moon semi-sextiled Jupiter. They consulted the cosmic planner, adjusted some links and spread some information to the side. They got more up to date, sorted out some impressions, were reminded of their long term goals, were able to let go of some imaginary blocks to their progress. Greased the wheels.

22 Degrees! The Full Moon’s closest aspects are with Uranus in Aries! Opposite Uranus, Jupiter in Libra is gifted with establishing fortunate relationships! Uranus in Aries lights the fires! Many relationships may be formed quickly and put into action practically simultaneously! The Sun semi-sextiles Uranus. They rule opposite signs Leo and Aquarius, but semi-sextiles are neighbors! They know each other, have spent time together. Sun is the One! Uranus is One to Many! Friends, community organizations, international networks! One Pisces person can inspire a revolution, call a Uranian to invent a miraculous device or a cure! We are not alone. The Moon in Virgo inconjunct Uranus organizes every last bit. That’s what computers are for! We have instant response time for disasters, cleanups, animal care, human healing. And Virgo reminds us to stay organic, use the simplest wild herbal when possible.

T Square! Both Moon and Sun will square Saturn at 27 Sagittarius. Moon squares 5:25 PM Pacific. Sun squares Saturn March 17. Saturn can hold things in abeyance, make you tired, delay the inevitable! Staying calm and realistic can be well worth the wait. It gives a timeout to consider more relevant priorities, to build more solidly. It may appear that promises are broken by fear, disappointment again. But if it isn’t truly a fit, in time that becomes clear. It is a great relief to be saved from ourselves! Rebuild from a strong stable center.

Moon square Saturn is also like an opposition since Moon rules Cancer, the sign opposite Capricorn, Saturn’s sign! Moon is nurturing, Saturn is brusque at times, quite hard working to make the deadlines. But he does provide for the family. Cancer warms the hearth; Saturn provides the shelter. Mom and Dad. Saturn at times gets rigid in his systems, is afraid there isn’t time. Moon needs to be clever to catch him in quick moments of between times. She needs to keep if brief and be to the point. Why is what she is suggesting a good thing? She needs to be careful it doesn’t sound like a criticism (in Virgo) but an opportunity! She needs to admire cleanly, no manipulation. Saturn can have opinions in Sag, but there needs to be room for opportunity, expansion, the ability to reset time and priorities! Good business! There may be grief that needs sensitive comforting.

Sun square Saturn Letting go of ego confrontations, making choices for the long term, keeping the goal in mind, are so more satisfying than a short term enchantment. Being told what to do, being intimidated, held back, is not honoring. Bring yourself up to your true level with people who delight in your contributions! Sun, especially in Pisces, can seem wooly minded, and mystical may not get the job done, at times not to be trusted. But good hearted can go a long way. There is a knowing care is there, in fact brightens Saturn’s day though he might not admit it at first. Saturn may find his more cold rough edges melt a bit. He more kindly says here’s what I need, can you do it? Sun says let’s go away for the weekend and think about it. Could work.

Mercury was just starting Pisces at our New Moon, now it is just about to leave. It’s finishing up the last bits of the subtle Pisces maze, connecting the dots, making a safety net, preparing for it’s passage through Aries! It has just squared Saturn 5:10 AM Pacific.

Upcoming Jupiter Square Pluto

At the Feb 26 New Moon Eclipse, Jupiter retrograde opposite Uranus was the upcoming major planet aspect. It has been like an explosion! Now it is the second Jupiter square Pluto in Capricorn March 30 taking precedence. Right now they are only 2 degrees apart and closing. There may be a calming, but powerful conditions prevail. It’s a time to keep watch for secret agendas and alliances, rights forfeited for lack of resistance, lack of attention, apathy, disbelief that could happen.

After the Oct 30 Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, this was THE Powerful Aspect at Election time! It became the 1st exact aspect after the Nov 8 Presidential Election! There will be three. March 30, 2017 is the second, Aug 4, 2017 the third. Donald J Trump, has been elected. Good news, bad news, complaints and lots needs fixing! Let’s roll up our shirt sleeves and together do what it takes! The work continues.

Relationships, cultural matters – immigrants, financial and health resources, environmental and animal welfare are undergoing dramatic changes. Truth, opinions, are running the gamut. The tables have turned and the Old Guard is protecting its own. Libra calls for negotiation, getting to know the other better. Jupiter calls for education, yet in simpler ways, using examples of daily living, metaphors ~ a way of describing something by equating it with something else.

If this aspect makes difficult connections with your birth chart, be cautious in business, keep your security up to date. Update or make a will as far in advance as possible. See your astrologer for a good date and time. Stay clean in your personal relationships, wait to marry. Challenging time for education, may need to be done anyway. Mind your kidneys/sugar, bones, teeth and skin.

Full Moons are so elegant when they rise and light the night sky! This Virgo – Pisces axis celebrates signs who live lives of service and caring. They both make beauty – Virgo crafts, Pisces art and music. The ultimate goal might be heaven on earth – Virgo healing the sick, singing while we work, a lovely garden; Pisces oceanic tides of cleansing our Spirits, visionary inspiration.

Blessed be and thank you.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Venus in Pisces

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Moon Setting Eclipse Patrick Cullis Indian Peaks Boulder Colorado

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

LUCKY Grand Fire Trine Sun KITE, Mystic Rectangle!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That said, I wish you great success!
