Cancer! Timeless Love… 

Cancer Divine Feminine Masque Four Seasons Walter Crane

Universal recognition of Divine Feminine ~ Maiden, Mother, Crone. A Masque for the Four Seasons, by Walter Crane, 1905-1909, oil on canvas

Love that crosses the generations is a precious chain of connection. Mother to daughter; daughter to child, child to their child. Though Cancer is the sign of Women, feminine, there are dear Cancer Men who are sensitive, highly educated, want to provide well, love their families above all else. Father to son, son to child, child to child. That love is cultural, develops genetically. It gets deeper and richer as time goes on. We become experts of our heritage, are proud to pass it on, hope it survives changing times. When we leave the fold, we take it with us and share it, expanding it into other’s hearts, integrating it with their cultural heritage and they share their heritage with us! We prosper together so many ways.

Love that develops as we age crosses our entire lifetime…

The Miracle, the Babe in arms…  There is nothing so deeply precious as birth, and the purity of an innocent newborn. We are touched beyond words. We see the vulnerability and feel our responsibility like never before. One tiny smile and we are melted for life. We take that tiny hand in ours and a profound lifetime bond is formed.

Maidens are full of life’s zest! They have a radiance that shines, are inspiring with their charm. Even the old men are enchanted! They remember when… Maidens have a purity of Spirit, are a bit naive, and that calls us to protect them. They bring new ideas to living and loving, making homes that their mothers didn’t, and mothers may envy. Maidens look for companions of heroic standing. Could be the Hunter, could be the office computer guy, or a leader of our times. These days many a Maiden has her own business and ups the ante. She wants an equal. A strong Father for her children who can secure the finances, get shelter for her family, who loves her Mother and will take her Mother in when Mom becomes a Crone.

Mother! Down deep, few have more power in our lives than our Mother, even if we didn’t get along. We long for a better connection. If she was lost in childbirth, we miss her. If our parents separate, we miss their connection. We unconsciously take on ways, mannerisms we think would be hers/theirs together. This amazing woman carried us in her womb, held our life in her hands. She feeds us, holds us when we have a bad dream, comforts our hurts, shows us how to potty and put on our clothes. We see her give our Pa astute advice as she comforts him too. She teaches us compassion, how to be a good person. If she’s not good at it herself, we somehow know that and if we aren’t too broken, vow to learn on our own. One way or another, she teaches us.

Wise Woman Crone, Council of Elders, Spiritual Caregivers  While strong and experienced, the body is giving way to transition. Some live fragilely, needing help; others rule with an iron fist, as if they will live forever, their own person to the end! They must be right, yes? After all, they lived that long. Yet there are those many roads to the mountain top, the edge of the world. Some are traditional, a 100% authentic basic element. Others are leaders of the new times, still carrying the village torches through the night, leading us through the darkest times! A balance is in progress between the old and new ideas that pass us by. Cancers absorb their lifetimes and have learned so much that at times they are adept at giving council. As elders, they also naturally share the Council of others in their age zone. They see perspectives others will never have, being born long ago in the times they lived. They see the consequences of certain ways and neglected matters. Cancer is the sign of intuitive cycles. They have developed a fine instinct about change and how to do it well. Listen with respect then do what is right for you.

Matriarch.  A Crone may become the Matriarch. The Family looks up to her as the eldest. She prays to do well for them. ‘Tis a great honor to be so blessed. Stand tall. Keep learning. You may roar your message or be exceedingly kind and gentle. It may take many times or be an instant hit. Choose best times to connect. Don’t neglect. We need your voice soonest. Always pray ‘Let the highest be done.’ That’s divine protection that they will take it as is best for them. Your message may simply be for getting them to think, kindling for the fire, a stepping stone to their true need. The higher Spirits, Angels, will guide you always. Thank you.

Cancer Moon Goddess - Artist Josephine WallThese precious cycles happen for men too, though commonly they are not named as such. We call them young men, Fathers, old men – without particular reverence. The Mankind Project helps men celebrate coming of age, provides initiations to the honorable stages of men’s lives, helps them attain self respect, develop givingness to others, and much more. Baby boys are adorable too. They become spirited young men, eager to find their own way, to love, to become good shareholders, contributors to the enterprise, to be active in planetary action. They can become dear husbands, dedicated Fathers to our children, guardians of our society. As wise elder men, mentors, they guide younger men coming along, the next generation. They teach life skills, save us time, get us to think more efficiently. Bless and be grateful to our champions.

Daily Companions  Cancers are treasured companions. They laugh and mourn with us. They tell us when we are really being ridiculous and we listen because we know they care ~ and likely there is a grain of truth in what they are saying. We cook, break bread and give each other recipe books, remodel the kitchen together! It’s really the recipe of Life we are learning. Shopping is terrific, comparing prices, getting important things we will use daily, baby clothes to antique furniture. Buying a home together is ultimate. No nook or cranny is overlooked when a Cancer is around. Art, music and family photos fill our homes and hearts. It’s great to share Meaningful Milestones! First date, prom. Off to college, first job. Marriages, first home, first baby, first teeth, all the graduations! Pictures and albums, mementos are sweet documents. One day you might find yourself mining the genealogy of your ancestors!

Sacred Goddess Gaia, Earth Mother  In the highest sense of the Divine Feminine, we look to taking care of our planet and humanity. Our Planet is our home. She needs care ~ clean air and water, safe living conditions, protected creatures, plants. Motherhood takes on new dimensions as the whole planet gets connected through the internet. We are becoming a world village and realize what affects one, affects us all as it ripples through and around us. We learn from each other. We act collectively as climate changes happen. We realize the talents, values each has to share. Some things will be technological while others will take us back to the simplest basics, like being able to grow our own food.

Blessed be every day of your sweet life…

Cancer 2019 Celestial Highlights!  

Astronomy 7.12.19 Sun Cancer - Moon Jupiter with Antares

This is going to be pretty! July 12,13,14 Moon with Jupiter and Antares! 

On the evenings of July 12, 13 and 14, 2019, watch for the bright waxing gibbous moon to swing by the giant planet Jupiter. Fortunately, the king planet is so bright that this world can easily withstand the lunar glare. After all, Jupiter is the 4th-brightest light in the heavens, after the sun, moon and planet Venus. Venus is a morning object, virtually lost in the sun’s glare now, so there’s no way to mistake Venus for Jupiter in the July evening sky.

Solstice Facts!

Solstice brings extremes of daylight and darkness
In N. Hemisphere, noontime shadows are shortest at this solstice
Longest day for N. Hemisphere, but not the latest sunset
Shortest day for S. Hemisphere, but not the latest sunrise
The slowest sunsets come around the solstices

Thank you always to Doug McClure at EarthSky!

Cancer Overview of Year to Come!

Cancer Women of 116th Congress 2018 Midterm Elections

The 116th Congress is the most diverse in history: 126 women take office, including 43 women of color. Yet this new diversity is confined to one party. Let’s build, further diversify. Support your women, ALL women! Here’s why!

June 16 and 18 Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune were together again, closely and retrograde this time. The first set was at 14 degrees. They were at 18 degrees. First Jupiter, immediately followed, by, with, Saturn. Jupiter off in the square – yes and no. Saturn said I see the part of this that has value, how can we make that happen? Now they are laying back until fall, but are continuously close in degrees. They finish Sep 21 Jupiter, Nov 8 Saturn. After the Sep aspect they part company, but both the Sep and Nov aspects are at 16 degrees!  So it goes 14, 18, 16 degrees. If you have chart factors at 16 degrees you will be connected to all three sets!

Nov 8 concludes the six aspects with Neptune, all happening while Jupiter is in its own sign Sagittarius! At that time it will be exactly a year ago, Nov 8, 2018, that Jupiter went into his own sign Sagittarius. These aspects with Neptune, the Dreamer, have opened our senses, making us aware of new dreams and beliefs. Times have changed!

We are in an impressive sequence of unusual aspects that started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter/Saturn were with Neptune at 18 Pisces. The nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs! April 4, 2020 starts a three time Jupiter conjunct Pluto sequence. As Saturn prepped with demolition, Jupiter will clean out the remaining nest then regroup and prosper. The Nov 12, 2020 Jupiter conjunct Pluto is at 22 Capricorn, exactly the same degree and sign as the Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto. Jupiter conjunct Pluto follows and is the closest aspect to the 2020 Presidential Elections Nov 3! Important things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

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

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

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

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

Cancer may be hard pressed to stand strong to lay a balance to the Dec 2 entry of Jupiter into Earth sign Capricorn, it’s opposite sign. With Jupiter’s entry into Capricorn there will be 3 outer planets in Capricorn until Saturn enters Aquarius March 31, 2020! Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn July 1, 2020, and again, there will be 3 in Capricorn until Saturn makes his final shift into Aquarius Dec 16, 2020. Saturn will be in his own, more conservative sign Capricorn for the presidential elections. Jupiter and Saturn are both high mountain lovers, so looks like it’s going to be fun for some! Jupiter will make the travel plans; Cap will build the lodge! Jupiter quickly sees potential, offers encouragement, gathers the backers. Capricorn is ace at putting the right pieces together with terrific timing. Successful champions! The job comes in early, and the results are impressive! See more about Jupiter in Capricorn!

And that brings us to Jan 12, 2020, Saturn conjunct Pluto and Mar 21, The Crown! 

We are building to the 2020 Super Stellium! 3 outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto will all be in Capricorn! New Year Day opens with 5 planets in Capricorn! Mercury conjunct Jupiter, Jupiter conjunct Sun plus Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn! Jan 12 Saturn makes the on average 34 year exact conjunction with Pluto.

The CROWN! March 21 2020 When Saturn is about to leave Capricorn, the three outer planets, along with Mars, are in culmination, as close as they will get, all four in a 7 degree Stellium! Pluto will be at 23° when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! Peter Novak has studied outer planet stelliums and found that in the last 2000 years, allowing a 5 degree range, there were only 23 three outer planet stelliums! Yes, if he had allowed 7 degrees, there would be more, but still, they are uncommon. See all about it

There are extremes of prediction for the January, March 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean.

April 4, 2020 starts a three time Jupiter conjunct Pluto sequence. Whatever demons or glory, tragedies or triumphs formidable Saturn shall have faced, Jupiter will optimistically pick up the pieces, repurpose. Pluto will see the promise of profit financially and spiritually. It will be an explosion of clearing for future works, secrets discovered, major funding attained, ‘keepsakes’ will be in the plans to be built ~ like a mini renaissance, yet more secrets will be made too. Bad will be healed, the rest is hallelujah! LOTS of big news! Super power plays will abound as the Nov 3 Presidential Election approaches.

The opposite pole April 4 through June 29 is it will be mass tragedy. More powerful secrets made, concealment and lies to cover. Be ready to help, protect yourself and others until this period passes after another 5 years. Seriously start making alliances with capable and trusted family, friends and associates now. Keep your emergency kit and supplies up to date for on-the-ground environmental conditions likely in your area, have a plan in mind. The aspects will hold at 24 to 26 Capricorn. If you have factors at or very close to those degrees you may be called into action. Challenges for Aries, Libra and Cancer, Gemini and Leo. More easy for Taurus and Virgo, Scorpio and Pisces.

The third and final Jupiter conjunct Pluto is Nov 12, at 22 Capricorn, the same degree and sign as the Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto! This is the aspect is the last major aspect link of the whole set that started Oct 30, 2018! It carries the experience of the previous two Jupiter/Pluto aspects, is the upcoming aspect when the Presidential Elections are held Nov 3 2020. Again, some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune are all in their own signs up to Dec 2, 2019! See Jupiter in Sagittarius That’s a lot of pure strong energy. Jupiter and Neptune are in malleable signs, in astrological terms, mutable. They are flexible, adaptable. Jupiter goes into Capricorn Dec 2. Saturn in Capricorn stomps his foot and calls for responsibility and to abide by the rules and laws, honor each other, your parents, the boss, elders and ancestors! You have to show him how and why that change you request makes sense. He’s a good balance to those other two wayward wanderers enamored in a moment, sometimes for no good reason. They are enjoying the show while he wants to know what’s real, what is doable. Neptune in Pisces senses our weak spots, and with compassion, converts them to strengths. We become aware of our Soul’s purpose.

Two outer planets change sign during Cancer’s coming year. Jupiter in Sagittarius enters Capricorn Dec 2. Saturn in Capricorn enters Aquarius Mar 21, 2020. Jupiter’s sign is where the good fortune is! Be ready to shift certain investments, adjust projects to new, additional goals. Saturn, quite at home in its own sign, suddenly finds himself in a sign quite unlike himself. Yet, Aquarius carries on the good work for all the world! While Capricorn loves the status and money, be guided by keeping your work in service to all. With earth changes, we will find ourselves working with many others in diverse environments under unusual conditions. Aquarius will expand your business, mission, if you let the change work for you. Blessed be.

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background until 2021… In Cancer’s coming year they are exact only once in their new signs Aries/Taurus at Valentine’s time, Feb 15! See more about Chiron/Uranus 

See the 2019 UPDATED Special Annual Edition Newsletter for making next year’s plans! Make your changes count.

Outer Planet Transits with Cancer 2019 – June 2020!

Cancer 2019 Oakland CA Painted Ladies Victorian Remodel

Oakland CA’s Painted Ladies! Victorian homes can be transformed inside and out! Maybe you will buy your first home this year or remodel the one you have. Remodeling is quite an adventure that ups that resale value and can make your home a great pleasure to live in!

OUTER PLANETS WITH CANCER

Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter

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

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

Pluto is moving from 20 to 25 Capricorn during Cancer’s year to come. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile aspect, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 23 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, mighty healing and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Pluto in Cap can seem like regular business to Cancers. Pluto is the water planet of Scorpio; Cancer too is a water sign. Cancer and Capricorn rule the home/career signs, the axis of Mother/Father. They coexist, always aware of each other, separate but interdependent. Mom needs Cap’s shelter; Papa needs Cancer’s nurturing. Cap helps keep Cancer from going too emotional. Cancer reminds Cap to be aware of human feelings. Pluto clears, heals, restores the balance. He scans for discrepancies, weak spots, adds love and power at times it is most needed. Pluto’s alliances can be gathered to help Cancer’s community efforts to protect women and children, fund educational projects, preserve basic family mores, raise our standards. Pluto can partner with us, teach us investment techniques until we can fund ourselves!

NEPTUNE is in his own sign Pisces. He is a water planet in the last water sign, the last sign, seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors 15 to 20 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Neptune and Cancer are both artists, music lovers, ones who help others. Neptune adds to Cancer’s already strong ‘psychic’ ability, showing us the greater dreams of all humanity. Cancers can be very focused on their own culture and family, yet find a lot can be shared with people of other cultures. Cultural difference may present no danger at all! That difference can be a blessed asset each gives. Neptune shows Cancers how amazing and wonderful the nutrition Cancers can teach is. It can heal people with various disorders, drug problems, how prevention is so valuable. Neptune knows how valuable safe comfortable shelter is that Cancer can help provide. So many are suffering without basic clean water… And Neptune’s dreams and visions are so very personal we are inspired beyond what we ever thought could be. How could we have forgotten what we once longed for so dearly?

URANUS, Aquarius’s planet, covers 2 to 9 Taurus! In Taurus it will anchor and build on change worthy ideas that need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network. They need to be cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, so they can effortlessly be carried on. A lot of earth changes we are witnessing are massive, coming suddenly, hot and heavy. The very land is changing, affecting food supplies and location choices about where to live. There is a lot of instability financially. We need to have backup funds, supplies, stay flexible. See more about the Aries to Taurus sign change.

Taurus invents simple. To freedom lover Uranus, being in Taurus may feel too slow, too close for comfort, so unexciting. Yet to Taurus, Uranus being in his sign may be the most fun he’s had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Uranus himself is shocked to find walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! It’s a whole new dimension compared to that desk chair in the still dead-air plastics scented office! Taurus may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away at all. But somehow it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Supercharged divine body electric!

Cancer is hawk-eye watching things unfold in every direction. Change isn’t always welcome at first. Traditions we relied on as givens are fading quickly. In many situations there will be little time to think it over, fewer choices. Good thing Cancers are intuitive and fast on their feet. Cancer is quick to see an opportunity, be first to sign up for the new class, get the new instructor! Foods are taking on new meaning, whether you grow it yourself, learn how it affects your body, is a natural remedy. Fresh and organic are worth it. Farsighted choices of land areas, could mean buying before prices rise. What you choose as an investment now may become quite valuable later on for personal use. Water will be a #1 factor. Children will ever be important. Uranus may make remarkable electronics available. Uranian genius may find new ways to live basic skills. Being well connected with Earth may save our lives.

CHIRON will be in Aries through 2027. In Cancer’s year, he will cover 1 to 9 Aries, activating any factors you have in those degrees. Chiron has been and will be traveling very closely to the same degrees as Uranus, the Aquarian planet, but in different signs! This has been going on since 2008 and continues through 2021, 13 years. Chiron has become more future minded and Uranus has taken on some shamanistic qualities. There is a subtle camaraderie with Aquarius. See more Aries is the first of the zodiacal signs, takes action! Uranus’s sign change into Taurus is making a shift in the foundation, now starting to hold steady.

If you have Chiron in these degrees, you will be having your 51+/- year Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed, your teaching skills improved. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about the head, brain and eyes. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too! In Aries, may start his own business and, loving independence, may be reluctant to marry…

Chiron in Aries may come in good will, but be a little too pushy for Mom sign Cancer! Harrumph. Chiron is feeling his oats. He has often held the back seat, and it’s his turn now to stand up! Chiron is trying on some new healing ingredients and techniques. Cancer’s Mom told her the healing practices her mother’s mother’s mother told her. So listen, maybe give the new stuff a try, you can always go back, or, hey, maybe show Chiron how they might be integrated. Some of those old remedies have worked for centuries, you know. Don’t let yourself be rushed. Pay attention to the new business skills offered. Chiron, quick in Aries, may be long gone, but you find the best of what he had to offer does work. Be cautious of marriage offers. Cancer wants security. Aries may promise, but not be able to do it. In Aries, Chiron can do a successful startup so quickly you can hardly believe it! If he remains in leadership, it can be challenging enough for him to hold and stay, opening branches, a franchise. That could work for Cancer. But don’t be surprised if he opens further and different types of businesses!

SATURN builds from 13 Capricorn to 1 Aquarius!

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

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 13 to 29 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through March 21, 2020! There will be more traditional endeavors.

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

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

Cancer has always been Capricorn’s equal no matter how women’s voting and property rights have been legally. Capricorn can’t do without the woman in their lives to care for them and their children. Capricorn essentially works for Cancer. And she needs his provision of shelter, earnings for upkeep, especially while she is having the babies. Though they have different demeanors, Cancer soft, Capricorn no nonsense, they have the same goals. It’s hard to preach to a Cancer about being frugal when they are already secretly putting grocery $ aside for the kids, a new coat, college education. Capricorn really already knows he depends on Cancer’s intuitive feelings, so he says one thing to her while wanting her to help him anyway. Raising kids can be a challenge between them. Capricorn wants his boys to be strong, a credit to the community and Father’s standing. Too much ‘coddling’ makes him afraid, at heart, that his boy will be bullied, not able to stand up for himself, do life’s business, and that’s generally not a good thing. And for girls to be be Daddy’s girl is not always a good thing either. Cancers, do your best. Learn more about these matters. Otherwise, if you are out in the business world yourself, a good mentor is always a blessing. Watch how the successful ones do things. Be sure they are good people, not in it for greed and lost their Souls. Stay in your heart. It matters to your children.

Returns March 20 to July 1, 2020 are at 0 and 1 Aquarius! Saturn/Capricorn are of the sign just before Aquarius. Saturn can set the mark. If the goal is amazing enough, all-encompassing enough to challenge Aquarius’s talents, AQ will be on board! He will make computer diagrams, research materials, legends, why it can work now, for years, even centuries, it has not been possible before. Aquarians are delighted to learn new techniques and learn so quickly, you lose little time while they do. In fact, your results may become 10-fold in a lot less time than usual! If you are working on challenging new sustainable options, Aquarius will love this new humanitarian effort. Being on the same page, whatever it is for the two of you, makes for a healthy Spirit and union. Many amazing like minded friendships may come, or if you are overwhelmed or need time to recenter, you may take time away and enjoy being on your own. If you are in business or want to spread the word about a project, your networking can go worldwide through social media! Concentrate on humanitarian and sustainability facets of your ventures and investments.

Cancer still feels the Saturn hand in things, but in Aquarius it is more progressive, lighter and at times Saturn laughs and it’s a frolic! Who would have thought?! Saturn can be a real comedian! He’s been there and knows the problems. Aquarius is off in space or kinky crazy, usually a bit of both. If the humanitarian side comes through, it’s big potatoes time! Guided by Saturn’s business skills, it’s networking to the max. Cancer is totally onboard with this, an excellent business person themselves! Watching the big guys do their stuff is impressive and Cancer, quick on the uptake, uses their model quite well! Saturn in Aquarius works planetary media; Cancer get the story to the community, the women. Saturn takes charge of current evolution, the science of gathering Souls to make necessary change just as fast as possible. The climate isn’t waiting for anyone, and Cancer understands the gravity of sudden land changes. It isn’t a time to be too old fashioned. Data is checked and rechecked. Important connections are made at local levels, arranging exchanges and discussions of techniques. Aquarius introduces Cancer to history makers! Wanting to serve them well and personally make history, Cancer improves his skills, seeks the most potent media places to plant their stories that the information can spread quickly. It invites others to keep the stories and sharing going. It’s a great life recipe!

JUPITER moves from 14 Sagittarius to 27 Capricorn

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

Jupiter in Sag and Cancer both highly value education. Jupiter is university level education; Cancer is a lifelong learner, course after course. Jupiter travels worldwide while Cancer is a homebody. Jupiter does imports/exports, publishes travel guides, while Cancer runs the restaurant, buys and sells real estate, runs community services businesses. Jupiter often doesn’t marry; Cancer has kids of their own and adoptees too! Jupiter seeks meaning while Cancer trusts tradition. So Jupiter may tease Cancer into thinking more about why what ‘truth’ is these days, who to get it from, check its integrity. The info might go public, into a textbook, guide life’s travelers. Is it for time out entertainment or timely to save the planet, our children and homes? Accuracy could be crucial. Does it have a spark of the exotic that catches our attention, is it funny even if serious? If Cancer thinks an update is important, they can draw siblings, neighbors, community into united action in as little as a few days! Cancer intuits the most effective links, introduces then around the table.

Jupiter in Capricorn fairly streaks through Capricorn, getting to the 27th degree, almost completely through Cap, by May 20, 2020! At that point it retrogrades and continues in Capricorn until Dec 2020. It makes work the most fun it ever was! You could be the visitor who is remembered for all the work you did! You might be a random traveler, a business consultant, the foreigner who was on a mission to help the people. Jupiter will help you jazz up your home, give you such good advice you can’t help doing it! They might volunteer and you join them to make some kind of profound difference. Don’t keep your lucky Jupiter charm. They need to travel, check out the territories. If you hire them, send them to the training seminars furthest away or send them to teach it! If they have too much routine, they will run away. Poof. Gone. Import/exports they are involved with might work well for you too. Their writings may inspire you to start an outstanding business newsletter or monthly report people count on. Jupiter can overdo, so Cappies beware. Know your personal limits and don’t invest in great sounding whims. Check things out. If you have had doldrums, Jupiter can cheer you up like a champ. You are encouraged because they act like you can do it, and it’s truth! See more 

Jupiter in Capricorn can exaggerate the rules, but he and Cancer, who wants security, will likely work something out reasonably. Jupiter has big ideas, could be a bit demanding and feel it is his right to demand hard work for important purposes. Cancer knows her priorities. Children, home first, then we’ll talk. Jupiter has that great big smile, you know – happy to know you, and people can’t resist doing what they can for him. Jupiter often has great success, so it’s worth the effort, and Jupiter is working for more to come! This is just the foundation investment for the future. Cancer remains cautious, not generally taken in by merely a pretty face, especially a stranger’s. Cancer may at times have a ‘baby’ face, but she raises kids, you know! She’s rulemaker and taskmaster, so you better worth your salt! But if Cancer feels to go ahead, will give it his all. Cancer has community connections and an All American 4th of July appeal. Jupiter in Capricorn may bring that to a greater height yet! Cancer will stay loyal as long as everyone’s highest good is the order of the day. Jupiter does need to travel. He may be back or perhaps it may be wiser to hire him as a consultant…one who comes and goes. Jupiter needs to have plenty of air space or the butterfly will be gone and no matter how impressive, you will be forgotten. Cancer, ever the understanding Mother, is kind. Jupiter did get a lot done in a short time, Cancer treasures the new expertise, will long remember how that it was done, the exciting time together.

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

If your Jupiter is in these degrees in these signs, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. The experience you have depends on how Jupiter is situated in your chart and how other current planetary positions apply to your chart or don’t. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and good marriages are possible.

Happy Birthdays, Cancers! We are ever grateful for your care!

Cancer Solar Eclipse New Moon!

Tuesday July 2 Cancer Solar Eclipse New Moon at 12:16 PM Pacific, 10 Cancer 38 

Moon’s Nodes, Saturn. Mars/Mercury Leo! Pluto at 1/12/20 Saturn conjunct Pluto degree! 

Solar Eclipse 8.21.17 Phases Jasman Mander Oregon

The Great American Eclipse 8.21.17 by Oregon photographer Jasman Lion Mander! Note the Diamond Ring effect on either side of totality! 

Cancer TOTAL SOLAR Eclipse, South America, Chile and Argentina. Per Earthsky, this is first total solar eclipse since the great American total solar eclipse of August 21, 2017. It will be the last total eclipse of the sun to grace Earth’s sky until December 14, 2020. See the details at EarthSky!

Moon is in her own sign! Sun is brightening her day! Moon is warmed, sees into her own legacy, feels comfortable to release some of her past. She is always learning, growing, certain fears are behind her now that she sees she is capable of taking care of herself. There is always a little girl, little boy part of every Cancer. Trusting yourself means you can include more people who have different ideas, or ways not like your family’s. Moon makes that 27/28 day cycle 12 to 13 times a year. She takes in all the signs; she circles your entire chart! She sees the linkages, the collective interaction. She has been gathering information, giving as she can as she has gone along. She makes lots of adjustments, each sign so different and specialized. She takes the pulse of the people from all walks of life. When she meets Sun, he sees what she has accumulated – awareness of accomplishments, shortcomings, needs that need meeting. She ‘reports’ to Sun in the sky, at each of the new moons in different signs during the year. Sun floods her with Light energy and she is recharged for her next cycle. He appreciates her perceptiveness and caring and is himself restored by her faith in him. It’s a regenerative time. With a New Moon Eclipse it is super potent because their lineup is exact in the same sign! This time they are BEING Cancer! Have a gathering of your cherished Cancer friends! 

Cancer assesses our familial axis, our feelings, if they are still true over time. Cancer seeks learning, an understanding of these primal cycles that are such a deep part of our lives. We take another look at our nurturing skills and their application as mother, father, caregiver. We look at our living quarters. Do we live in peace, comfortably in our homes, in a good way with others? It’s a perfect time to make assessments, put things into perspective as they have developed through our lifetime up to now. Keep these things in mind as you face challenges. How we take care of ourselves, our daily upkeep, develops the habits of keeping up to date, awareness of tending ourselves as keenly as we tend our children. It is spiritually our daily food, important because it determines the long term outcome, our thinking, our health, our satisfaction! It gives our children a supermodel to follow!

The New Moon most closely, by standard aspects, is opposite Saturn, the planet of Cancer’s opposite sign Capricorn! There is a censor in the room. Mythologically Saturn is a man, but as an Earth planet is considered to be feminine. There is a soft underbelly, a vulnerability. This is a good time for them to communicate across the kitchen table. Father Sun and Chief Saturn both want dominance. Set that aside for a few minutes and just listen to each other. Think it over and come back later. There will be value in both sides. Sun wants to be himself and be released from antiquated laws. Saturn feels secure with laws, wants to be respected, knows times change. Sun can go in with admiration and gratitude for how Saturn held it all together. Saturn can go in as an equal, grateful for Sun’s courage to test new ways. Sun’s radiance can help us step up, to see the way! 

Saturn is at the Moon’s South Node while Moon and Sun approach the opposite point, the North Node. Fate is afoot. Many think Saturn is the past, even past karma. Moon and her sign Cancer are thought to be what we came from in past lives. The Nodes are the Moon’s nodes! For some there is an awareness of past lives, and some have a photographic memory of early happenings of this life! To make that more indelible, Moon and Saturn rule Mother and Father, those most of us knew from our earliest existence. If not, we wished for them, missed what we would never have. At this time there is a bit of a shake down. How were things really? Did one or the other parent favor us or us glorify one of them? It takes a certain maturity to see every person as a human with goodness and faults and foibles. When we are strong enough, we can afford to admit our own faults, and the faults of loved ones we depended on, that it’s ok, even lovable, to be human.  

In case you were wondering, yes, Saturn and Pluto have been closely and intensely together since January. Saturn has retrograded and is faster than Pluto, so their challenges are lessening for now. Saturn is not one to forget what needs doing. He’s committed and reliable, so though leaving Pluto, will still be tending the projects. Being retrograde, he will see what was missed before, is now more ready to take on some of that unfinished business. Pluto brings up financial matters, power, deeper relationships, life and death, healing. Saturn wants right rules – laws, hard work, building, reality checks, picking up the pieces and renovation. 

The first pair of aspects Saturn and Jupiter made to Neptune were at 14 degrees. June 16 and 18 they were at 18 degrees. They will lay back until fall, but are continuously close in degrees. They finish Sep 21 Jupiter, Nov 8 Saturn. After the Sep aspect they part company, but both the Sep and Nov aspects are at 16 degrees!  So it goes 14, 18, 16 degrees. If you have chart factors 15 to 17 degrees you will be connected to all three! Jupiter has been encouraging Neptune to expand his vision. Saturn has been looking to see how it can all be done the most efficiently!

Saturn and Jupiter with Neptune June 16 and 18 brought us to review and strengthen our techniques, be reminded of the potency of Earth’s situation. Business, beliefs, posterity have all been on our minds. Jupiter brings the truth to old denials. He keeps the perspective of the big picture in mind and our intentions for the future guide our every choice. Jupiter is readying our plans and preparations. Learning and teaching are needed now to be in place for when we or others are ready for the next step. Be flexible and keep the faith! 

Mercury entered big hearted Leo the 26th. Fast spirited Mars is fresh, entered Leo the afternoon before the New Moon. Though Mercury is faster, they are close. He speaks with Mars over his shoulder, giving a few ideas of what to expect. These frisky two are proud in fiery Leo, ready to try some new things with flare and style! Square Uranus, the planet of Change, can be both formidable and fun! The task is large. Uranus is the planet of humanitarianism and Taurus is Earth herself! It’s a big calling. They can be shocked or pleased to be handed such a job worth of their abilities. Mercury in Leo likes to get the word out in volume, get people’s attention, center stage with bright lights, full entertainment mode! Mars is undaunted, fearless and heroic! He can be the athletic champion leading the parade! They do like to do it their own way, by their trademark style, and Mars is independent. Tell them what you need, get out of their way, let them work it out! Done in a flash!

While Mercury and Mars are out pushing the boundaries, Venus is about to change signs from Gemini to Cancer, the next morning, sweetening Cancer’s month. Graciously say what you need to get said, then be ready to listen to the kids, fix a gourmet meal or two, try a new recipe, talk with the Mamas and Papas. Crochet some lace for the bride’s dress. Business could be good as what you sell is prettied up. Cancer is a great sign of business, cycles, things we need on a daily basis. Do a little conservative safe investing. At the end of the day welcome intrepid Mercury and Mars back home! They will need some TLC – a good meal and a comforter. Being at full spirited tilt is a complete workout, body, mind and Soul.

Chiron in Aries & Uranus in Taurus continue humming along. They are will be completing their 13 years long journey in 2021. For now they are closely together in the background…a small but potent aspect. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus 


Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently part of!

We are in an impressive sequence of unusual aspects that started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter/Saturn were with Neptune at 18 Pisces. The nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio. And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs! April 4, 2020 starts a three time Jupiter conjunct Pluto sequence. As Saturn prepped with demolition, Jupiter will clean out the remaining nest then regroup and prosper. The Nov 12, 2020 Jupiter conjunct Pluto is at 22 Capricorn, exactly the same degree and sign as the Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto. Jupiter conjunct Pluto follows and is the closest aspect to the 2020 Presidential Elections Nov 3! Important things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.  

Pluto is now at 22 Capricorn, that degree and sign! 

Pluto will be at 23° when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the January, March 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! Two sides of the same coin. They will both be happening at once symbolically. There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential election because they are precisely astrologically linked to it! Again, some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Those of you with factors in your charts close to 18 and 22/23 and 27 degrees will be connected to these world events. You can help or hinder or be hindered and helped! We’re counting on you to be keepers of the important informations, sacred wisdom, that are transmitted at these times – even if those are difficult times for you. You are the Guardians and will distribute valuable portions of information in potent places where it will do the most good, be effective. We honor your place, for being here this way for us.

The empathy of your Caring is more appreciated than you will ever know! Thank you.

Capricorn-Cancer Lunar Triple Eclipse Full Buck Moon! 

Tuesday July 16 at 2:38 PM Pacific 24 Capricorn/Cancer 04 

12 Day Moon, Saturn, Pluto, Moon’s Nodes Sequence of Conjunctions & Oppositions – Triple Eclipse! Three Fixed Stars!

Capricorn Cancer Lunar Eclipse Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway Heiko Junge

Lunar Eclipse at Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway by Heiko Junge

Also called a Blood Moon, Partial LUNAR Eclipse, visible mainly in Africa, not visible in North America. Check the net for live coverage! 

Full Moon! Hearts open wide, hands across the table. Moon in Capricorn, Sun in Cancer. Moon is discreet in Capricorn, a bit formal perhaps, cares about its work, takes responsibilities seriously. She sweetly gives eldercare, makes sure everyone at work eats on time and well. Moon in Cap is frugal and doesn’t waste time. She capitalizes on the regs and expects standards to be kept. Children are encouraged to do their chores, contribute to family needs. When able she contributes to research, especially nutritional research and home technology for better sustainable living. Moon can be in charge of construction crews, at times, all women groups!

Sun in Cancer cheers her on, lighting the way to new connections with a further reach into the community! Moon and Capricorn, music and composers, may combine their sounds. Exotic rhythms, sometimes bluesy, sometimes indigenous. Or its the kitchen and housekeeping music that gets us through the day with satisfaction! Sun in Cancer makes us proud to be a Mother, at home, at work, of the world! That recognition of feelings we all share, makes us allow the flow of our lives, the ups and downs. It makes us feel ok about ourselves, the natural human we are. Family culture comforts. The traveler’s home away from home lets us see the universal human family, that we are not always as different as we thought. Mementos remind us of happy shared moments.

An Eclipse! Earth is in the middle, Sun on one side, Moon in Earth’s shadow on the other. We are getting rays from both directions! Moon has her multitudinous energy of diversity she has gathered as she traversed all the signs as she does every month! She’s good at that. No wonder she can be such a great commodities trader! She knows the mood of the majority of the people and what they need! In Capricorn there is special compensation for doing well, building strong lives and community. If you feel a little intimidated by their keen eye, that’s good. We know you are wanting to do your best. Sun just C Major shines! Cancer can be a bit shy at times, but the Sun gets her up every morning. She makes that stretch like a cat, gets the rest of us up, breakfast is in the making! He does what the day requires. Awesome. He loves us up, more than we expected. Feels good.

This full Moon is in a tight sequence of aspects that will keep us on our toes. You can’t really say, other than an astronomical phenomena, that this Full Moon is on one day at that certain time. It’s pattern starts at least 5 days before July 9, just after the New Moon Solar Eclipse, as the Sun moves to the Moon’s Nodes, opposite Saturn at the South Node! It Involves repeated aspects to Pluto, Saturn, Neptune and the Moon’s Nodes. The sequence of aspects finishes July 21 when Venus opposes Pluto. It’s intense since it involves heavy hitters Pluto and Saturn and the planets involved are fully aware of each other in conjunction and opposite points!

Triple Eclipse! With Saturn and Capricorn of Karma and Dharma, Pluto in Capricorn – a powerful antagonist and protagonist, the Moon of the Past and ancestral memories – lots of deep emotions, the Moon’s Nodes – an important axis of balance of past and present/future, you can see the depth of this Eclipse! Not only is it a Lunar Eclipse, but Moon also occults (eclipses) Saturn and Pluto! It’s like a triple Eclipse! So we have direct shots not only between Moon, Sun and Earth, but also Moon, Saturn, Pluto and Earth! Open up your perception to receive the profound information channeled at this time. Cleanse and take good care of yourself in preparation. Fortify yourself and be in a safe place so you can feel free to be vulnerable.

In addition to three Eclipses, the Full Moon is connected by a T Square with three Fixed Stars! The Sun is between Pollux and Procyon at 23 and 25 Cancer, opposite Moon, and Arcturus squares them from the T point at 24 Libra! Arcturus can act as a scanner, sender and/or receive transmissions it dispurses to the others. Cancer Sun and Moon Capricorn are already activating parental and partner factors. These Stars will bring more subtle factors into play as well. Pollux is one of the Gemini Twins, is considered to be the ‘immortal’ Twin. With the Sun, he is considered to have ‘Occult and theosophical interests,’ or per Elsbeth Ebertin, be ‘the wicked boy.’ Just as Mars has its good sides, if the energy it creates is channeled constructively, so can Pollux. Procyon is THE star of Canis Minor, Orion’s smaller hunting dog. It’s name comes from ‘Rising before Sirius, The Dog in Front.’ Author Robson says ‘Great help from friends, gifts and legacies if not afflicted, military preferment after great struggles and expense. If rising or culminating, kingly preferment.’

Arcturus at the T point mojo position, ‘has been an object of the highest interest and admiration to all observant mankind from the earliest times.’ Being the 4th brightest star, Seamen used it in navigation. But some gave it a ‘stormy reputation’ as well. In challenging aspects, like this one, being from Libra of the law, Ebertin says ‘If involved in legal action, such a native may lose all.’ Pay attention and use your own intuition. There is so much more to read about the Fixed Stars. See this site, or another of your preference. There are several good ones. 
 
For those whose charts that have factors in the Eclipse Pathway, 12 to 27 degrees, at some point your name will be called. The whole kit and caboodle will be a lot to take in while Mercury is retrograde 4 Leo back to 23 Cancer, changing our perspectives about ourselves while in Leo, and of our parents and culture while in Cancer! Keep your hip waders handy and hang onto your shovel since a lot of debris will be cleared out! But, for now, just put it aside until at least four days after Mercury goes direct the 31st. After that time things will become more clear and you won’t throw something away you wish you hadn’t! 

Scan this timetable, Pacific zone dates – all during Mercury Retrograde! 

July 9 Sun opposite Saturn activating the Moon’s Nodal axis, South Node with Saturn – Sun faces responsibilities, how to build his life, both past and present. Saturn, the planet of the South Node’s sign Capricorn, is metering the applications, updating old skills. 

10  Sun trine Neptune – putting our heart with our dream

11  Mars in Leo trine Chiron, square Uranus – first leader to try a new healing remedy. Be careful, don’t force the issue. Sometimes quicker is better, but be careful!

14  Sun opposite Pluto – a deeper awareness of mortality, money, masters, love or loss

15  Moon opposite Venus in Cancer – consider different values, giving up a wish, reaching out

16  0:18 AM Pacific Moon conjunct/occults Saturn – Saturn is Moon’s ‘opposite’ planet. Saturn channels the blueprint for Cancer to follow.

16  2:05 AM Moon conjunct South Node – old habits may need adjusting; some excellent talents may be brought to bear

16  10:16 AM Moon conjunct/occults Pluto – Pluto channels the deepest power of life and death, sharing love and money

16  2:38 PM Full Buck Moon, Moon opposite Sun, Lunar Eclipse

16  Venus opposite Saturn – old ways may stabilize, distancing could save the day, accept the help

17  Venus conjunct Moon’s North Node – a merger, a blessed feminine step forward, the chef wins the award!

18  Venus inconjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius, trine Neptune in Pisces – adjusting to greater possibilities, a shift in direction. Soulmates, the dream may come true, believe in yourself

      Saturn Rx, though still close, is leaving the sextile with Neptune. They have been getting things done!

      Jupiter Rx is leaving the square with Neptune… We have been letting go of denial, seeing greater possibilities!

21  Venus opposite Pluto – seeing a greater depth of possibilities in the great vortex of life! Letting go of what ‘hurt’ us, allowing a healing connection from a safe distance. 

This is a super brief synopsis. Books are written about these. What makes this more important is the repeated aspects to Saturn, Neptune, Pluto and the Moon’s Nodes! They are acting concurrently in a group.

Mercury at 1 Leo retrograde came close, but didn’t make either the square with Uranus or trine Chiron! There were almost ‘accidents’ that just faded away, a friend that didn’t quite happen, the hoped for change didn’t become, a meeting not made. With Chiron, there were ambiguous hints of invitations, but if you went, there was no one there… To further put those in the past, Mercury is about to go back into Cancer the 19th at 0:07 AM Pacific. The Leo stuff will likely be forgotten.

July 11 Mars square Uranus, trine Chiron culminated. That square was frisky, and was coming to its height during the New Moon Solar Eclipse! The trine with Chiron probably saved the day with healing, possibly avoiding, any dangerous circumstances. Now, Mars is effortlessly running along in Leo. He will be steadily in trine the next 9 days with Jupiter, exact the 25th. Lucky new beginnings! Spirited action in behalf of super plans, travel, education! This is one of those bigger-than-life times! Independence, leadership, Initiation! Be there! Take the training, move your life, step UP!

Chiron in Aries & Uranus in Taurus continue humming along. They are will be completing their 13 years long journey in 2021. For now they are closely together in the background…a small but potent aspect. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus 

Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently part of!

We are in an impressive sequence of unusual aspects that started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter/Saturn were with Neptune at 18 Pisces. The nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio. And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs! April 4, 2020 starts a three time Jupiter conjunct Pluto sequence. As Saturn prepped with demolition, Jupiter will clean out the remaining nest then regroup and prosper. The Nov 12, 2020 Jupiter conjunct Pluto is at 22 Capricorn, exactly the same degree and sign as the Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto. Jupiter conjunct Pluto follows and is the closest aspect to the 2020 Presidential Elections Nov 3! Important things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time. 

Pluto is now at 21 Capricorn, one degree of that 22! 

Pluto will be at 23° when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the January, March 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! Two sides of the same coin. They will both be happening at once symbolically. There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential election because they are precisely astrologically linked to it! Again, some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Those of you with factors in your charts close to 18 and 22/23 and 27 degrees will be connected to these world events. You can help or hinder or be hindered and helped! We’re counting on you to be keepers of the important informations, sacred wisdom, that are transmitted at these times – even if those are difficult times for you. You are the Guardians and will distribute valuable portions of information in potent places where it will do the most good, be effective. We honor your place, for being here this way for us.

Open your Spirit wide to receive and embrace the energies of both Eclipses! Thank you always.

Mercury Retrograde Cancer Leo 2019 Trollstigen, Troll's Ladder Norway

Norway’s west coast – the Trollstigen Pass Road, Troll’s Ladder, famous with 11 hairpin bends! Thank goodness Mercury RXs have only two hairpins!

Some retrogrades are more dangerous than others. If you like fast driving like some Leos do, it’s by choice, exhilarating. Cancers prefer comfort rather than fear. They will be saving money driving the camper while the Leos are deliciously extravagantly in the convertible Jaguar!

2019’s second of 3 retrogrades starts in Cancer, retrogrades in Leo – Mother Moon and Father Sun’s signs. It goes back into Cancer then into Leo for the final lap. Cancer might drive like their mothers, while Leo drives for the prize money! Well, this time we get a double drive in two signs. They will definitely feel different. The transition from one to the other may be the actual challenge. We are left in the sign of our Self, our own radiance, Leo, the sign of the Heart. They are lovers, creative, generous. They intend to be teachers, whether the musician in the spotlight or in the classroom. The Cancers will allow themselves a little more spice! All said and done, the Leos will be glad to go home and be fed. Showing off is hard work, LOL!

About Retrogrades!  

Whether hiking or driving magnificent mountain switchbacks, what a journey! What amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. What’s behind is out of sight, a memory; what’s ahead is a mystery! Inward bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. Promontories give us visions of the future, longings for more! Each gives us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch. It’s important that there are changes, reversals, old ideas that clogged things up are left behind, revelations occur, new ideas teased into action! Cancers like the new stove; Leos like their new buggy.

Every Retrograde is unique, per the signs, their planets, the connections made with other planets during their retrograde cycle, and, of course, the connections it makes, or doesn’t, with your personal chart! Mercury Retrogrades have three part cycles. First is the part leading up to the Retrograde station. We’re on fresh ground, curious. Second is the Rx period when it goes ‘back’ over the part leading up to the Rx. We see things from an opposite point of view and the planets around us are moving to new positions, people are changing. Adjustments are made. Third and last is the part when Mercury turns Direct, ‘forward’ again, covering that same ground the third time! We get three chances. At first we get all things in order we possibly can. Second changes and revisions are made. Third, we tidy up, polish things up, complete and present it to the world!

Cancers need to build their courage. Paired with Leo ups the odds of bravery! Cancer, a cardinal get started sign, is a bit conservative, protecting home and hearth, but can be quick to get things moving when they make up their mind. Leos are what is called a fixed sign, accused of being stubborn, and they are full of Light, so people admire them. They get away with keeping the old show that has always worked before. But times do change. They need at least three times to take it in. Letting go of the good old times is tough. But show them better and they are good to go! They will tell you it was their idea. And it was! They thought it over and decided to accept it! Just give them a little time, a lot of appreciation, and they will be with you shortly!

Cancer matters include food, where and how you live, your family, how you are feeling these days. All the daily goods, clothing, how the car works, whether you have enough money, a job that you like. It can be corporate or at the local Ma & Pa. How the kids are doing, or your parents, are high on your list, if not the highest. Food availability may change, the house may need some immediate fixing during a retrograde, Rx. Your route to work shifts. The stock market goes up and down; you may decide to shift your investments, but know that they will shift again after the Rx. The family may go through some ups and downs, especially with a mother or daughter. A surprise pregnancy and then you aren’t? Wait to propose or choose a wedding date or place. The choice of a school may get strong priority, or whether to go at all. Studying. Where to live and with whom.

Mercury in Cancer is a bit at odds with itself. Mercury is logical; Cancer is intuitive. But Mercury helps Cancer put their experiences into words, explain what happened, tell what they ‘saw,’ have amazing recall or remember from long ago. Could be time to write a memoir, discuss feminine family mores, talk/listen with your teenage child, tell people what you have been wanting and why. Cancers sometimes don’t speak up for themselves because how can they tell us where they got those ideas? Parents told them to stop telling stories about imaginary playmates when they were little, yet they could have sold millions of their writings! As it is, being acutely aware of cycles, they are great stock traders, especially of commodities, life’s daily goods. A lot of famous people have Mercury in Cancer – it is their link to the people!

Leo is teenage time, becoming your full glorious Self! Love is always in their heart, from little children to oneself, a romantic relationship that may not result in marriage. Cancer has children, but sometimes Leos spend their life as a step parent teaching other people’s children, and/or at school. Leos are bigger than life and have the hair to prove it! Performance, on stage, or that grand car, their athletic prowess, showing their colors, are part of their fabric. They work hard to be the best. They have a natural attractive presence, a big smile, are generously spirited. You know when they walk in the room. Are they happy? This retrograde will sort out some of the answers. It’s grand to be admired, but are you loved? Do you have the money to support your lifestyle. Shall you accept that position of status or do you long to do what is in your heart? Is there some more learning to be done to make you feel good about your own expertise. Should you take over and open your own shop? It likely won’t be a finger snap, but you will get headed to what’s better for you. Could be a great stepping stone.

Mercury in Leo likes it there! Leo loves being brilliant and mesmerizing their audience! They have a lot to say anywhere, anytime, to anyone who will listen! They are inspirational and people really listen. Leo will tell them how they got started, from nothing to somewhere. They will offer help and connections, ideas. They use colorful phrases and their body language is vibrant, their hair gleams and their spirits soar. You can tell they are passionate and they want you to have the glow too! They are wizards at teaching. They urge you to do it your way, do what’s in your heart with your own natural talents and assets! Success! They are profound lovers and can tell you stories that make you cry then clap your hands for happy! Just go easy while Mercury is retrograde, LOL!

The Stations! A Station is the pause at the retrograde and direct turns. Mercury literally appears to stand still for 8 days! We mull it over, focus, anchor what we want to keep. The Rx, turn back station is early at 4 Leo on July 7. It is the point furthest forward, a Leo preview of things possible to come! Four days before and after, we will mull over money, love, learning and giving, what’s in our heart to do. Mercury returns to Cancer July 19. Cancer sees what Leo has to offer, prepares for that potential. It sees what Leo needs to have stable support for his work and starts making adjustments so he won’t fail. The Direct, turn forward station is back at 23 Cancer 56 July 31. Four days before and after, Cancer will steady up matters at that point, making ready to embark on the journey to offer Leo what she can – cookies, cribs, her family’s expertise, the reservoirs of her extensive memory, plenty of hugs.

Look in your own chart to see where 23 Cancer to 4 Leo span, what house/s it is in. The matters of that/those houses are the place/s the Mercury Cancer/Leo apply to.

Mercury itself is communications, logic. It speaks/listens, is quicksilver distracted, yet intent when interested. It has to do with our lungs and breath, how we touch one another’s Spirits either with hands or words. We can be angry, comforting, whisper, hypnotize, sing lullabies to the baby, chat the neighborhood gossip, share vital life changing information.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers, or do everything to make it possible for that to happen so it doesn’t fall through. Escrows can fall through. Use experienced brokers. People don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! You lose your cell. Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Sign any contract changes and make sure they do too. Get/make copies, save and backup. Generally, you avoid making significant purchases/decisions especially of matters specific to the sign/s involved. In this case, Cancer rules homes, so you might wait to buy/sell a home. Leos might wait to buy a luxury car. Oh, and things get lost, sometimes found at the next retrograde! Do check with your astrologer for your good dates and times of day to make the best of it!

Aspects formed during Mercury in Cancer/Leo Retrograde. See the Timetable below.

There are only 3 and they each are formed only once.

  1. July 8 Mercury retrograde in Leo station conjuncts mighty Mars! Three days before, three days after! Could win the award, even several! Great show, grand performance, great race! Take your mind for a walk! See what is special about the love you see in action, how first responders save the day – an accident, a fire, a weather disaster, a lost pet, a heroic wilderness rescue. How are you the hero of your own life?! The heart we have is so very special. Love is beyond understanding at times. It’s sacred, reverent, almost hurts! The love for a child, the teacher for her students, precious performances as we learn to sing or make music, fresh starts taking pure courage, the 75 year marriage, an elder person holding our hand as they leave this dimension. We are phenomenal creatures. Superb leadership will always be in Love, a cat with nine lives!
  2. July 24 Mercury retrograde in Cancer conjuncts delectable Venus! Tasty, but don’t expect the meal to be precisely what you ordered, or the recipe to work out perfectly. Could be better the way it happens! No proposals with this one. A profession of love maybe, but it’s not likely to be a permanent thing you hoped for or would like long term. Still can be sweet. Give appreciations. If you are an artist, play with your medium, your colors. See if there is a message in your work. Write some music. Talk with your family, but expect everything to change. It’s not a time of stability; let go of expectations. Shift your thinking into exploration mode. Venus and Cancer are both feminine, so call a woman you haven’t spoken with for a while. Take a good look at your kitchen and the food you eat. See if you can do some updating so your meals are easier and more to your liking. Revise your diet a tad. If you have any doubts about your health, consider who you would like to see about that. If it’s cosmetic or not urgent, do wait until Mercury goes direct. You may have some good ideas about financial matters. See your astrologer for your best times.
  3. August 16 Mercury in Leo squares Uranus in Taurus! This aspect is exact the day after the whole retrograde cycle ends, but will be in effect the 14th and 15th. Be careful. Mercury gets impatient and Uranus can be fast while Taurus gets in your way. Just when you thought you passed them, they pass you, again, speeding! Maybe just get off the road and wait for a while or take another route. Better than getting in an accident or stuck in traffic brought to a standstill because they did. Be careful when you are backing up. Now, Mercury is a clever planet, and Leo has so much light he sees what others can’t! Uranus is impressed by this unusual phenomena, so may be very curious about it. It won’t be normal business. Either there will be a breakthrough or no amount of communicating will get the job done. Leo feels darn bad when they can’t do it. Or Uranus may miss the fact that Leo, though flamboyant at times, self-aggrandizing in manner, usually really wants to share something valuable. It may be just Leo’s style or he’s a bit unsure, so covers with distracting behavior. Try to listen to what is being said, versus how it’s said. Leo and Uranus are kinda opposite because Uranus is the planet of Leo’s opposite, Aquarius. Just stand a little further apart. This can be done – carefully. If Uranus pulls back too much it looks like he doesn’t care; Leo will pack up and leave thinking Uranus isn’t interested. Keep eye contact and tell Leo you are wanting to hear the rest.

Traditional Cancer/Capricorn, Jupiter, Mercury square Neptune, Saturn Sextile Neptune!

New Moon Solar Eclipse!
Solar Eclipse, 5 Planet Capricorn Stellium, Jupiter/Saturn with Neptune!

Full Cold Moon!

Beautiful bright night, Dec 21 Winter Solstice is followed by the Dec 22 Full Cold Moon 9:49 AM Pacific at 0 Cancer/Capricorn 49! 

Traditional Cancer/Capricorn, Jupiter, Mercury square Neptune, Saturn Sextile Neptune!

2018 Cancer Capricorn Full Cold Moon Star Heavens Solstice

Star of wonder, Star of night, Star with royal beauty bright
Homeward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to Thy perfect Light

Winter Solstice is the darkest longest night, a night of new beginnings as each day after gets a little longer and the Light comes back. The very next day the Full Cold Moon is a new beginning too at ZERO Capricorn/Cancer. Mother Moon is feeling quite comfy in her own Sign Cancer. She’s keeping the home fires burning, might be making gingerbread cookies and tasty eggnog! Cappie makes sure the firewood is in and the long night doesn’t seem so long. Lots of love, feeling safe to think about the New Year to come. Yule gifts are so appreciated, and support our most meaningful choices. 

Children will be coming home, families will be gathering, elders and friends are visited or join us. Some will be sorely missed, not with us on this plane anymore. Bless their souls and comfort us. Schooling and our work, businesses will be discussed. Take time out to walk alone for a while each day, to recenter in your own being, to bring back gentle kindness. Allow primary differences to coexist. Capricorn and Cancer are both staunch protectors of tradition, but let yourself also allow for creativity to spark fires we never knew burned within us! Say, I’ll think about it, and give it some time. Things have a way of working out. Respect the elders and respect the youngers. Love it up! 

There are few ‘active’ aspects in the Full Moon chart. That means the majority of aspects, planetary connections have already happened, our job is to carry them forward. The active aspects haven’t completed yet, are still being addressed.

Past Aspects

In the last three days, Sun in Sagittarius squared Chiron in Pisces, trined Uranus. Sun tried to trick Chiron a bit, help him heal a little faster, give him some business tips from other cultures business styles, even could have tried to offer him some imports to sell, or to get him to export something special he produced. They could have easily disagreed over ethics, the ‘truth,’ or beliefs. Things might have gotten a bit tangled. But the trine with Uranus, a more flowing aspect, brought them back to friendship and it became more about how fun it could be to surprise everyone else! Off they went together!

Venus in Scorpio just brought her sweetie Neptune his favorite chocolates. Chocolate vitamins are the best! He sings her favorite fairy tales. He tells her mythic stories of lovers who saved each other, so eloquent they will never be forgotten. She shares some of her secrets knowing they will be safe with him. That means a lot and he is touched. She is so charismatic even the old man of the sea is swayed by her powerful Grace. He feels her deep caring and healing. The loss of loved ones is lessened. They both understand spiritual matters, the essence of Soul. At the end of the day, together they rock the baby and soon everyone is asleep, dreaming with the Angels.

Mars, feeling his way along in Pisces, made a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn. Mars’ intuition and surprising strength of character may have impressed Pluto. He could have gotten hired for the holidays and the job be kept afterwards. Mars may have secretly inspired Pluto to be a little more tender using his own strengths. Pluto in Capricorn, more financially inclined, may modify some of his intentions, be reminded of his integrity, and acknowledge more of his spirituality. 
 
Upcoming Aspects

Jupiter and Saturn The two most important aspects of the chart are the two most important of 2019, active now through November 2019, preceding the two extraordinary sister aspects, the Transit of Mercury and Jupiter conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER!!! The two eleven months aspects will each happen 3 times, the more difficult yet creative one is first, each time followed by the one that figures out how to do what can be done! The first two are in January, the retrograde pair are close Jun 16/18, the last two are apart from each other in Sep and Nov. 

2019’s first aspect is Jupiter square Neptune. There is so much going on at times confusion reigns, things can get a bit hysterical – sometimes scary – you could get lost, but it can be both entertaining and delightfully rampant as well, depending on where you are standing! Jupiter in Sagittarius is aiming to expand Neptune’s range of attention, and that’s almost an inconceivable idea because Neptune, especially in its own sign Pisces, is so all encompassing to begin with! But Jupiter, robust and mostly innocent in his intent to be benevolent, is undaunted and his exaggerated tales make your howl with laughter. Who cares if you believe it or not?! Saturn follows each of the three Jupiter squares with his sextile to Neptune, calming things down. Sextiles offer opportunity, and out of chaos, practical Saturn extracts what’s usable and doable, condenses it, converts it to productive function.

Mercury, right in front of Jupiter, squares Neptune too! Due to the retrograde it happens Mercury squares Neptune at this Full Moon too, at the SAME degree, 10 Sagittarius! Mercury is generally is a fast mover, makes a quicky square. Mercury is pretty clear in Sagittarius, has his opinions. He has his usual ‘chatter’ but in Sag he’s looking for meaning too. He’s more likely to pick a direction. Or, he’s scattered more than ever with all those Sag possibilities in mind. Neptune too can go any which way. Either it’s mass confusion and illusion, or you would give your life for what you are dedicated to! Mercury is usually logical, Neptune is famous for those psychic curve balls! Good thing Mercury is quick on his feet in a fire sign, like a flash in Sagittarius, the sign of the nimble traveler avoiding the potholes! Good luck!

Practical matters: With this square, confusion is common, getting lost happens, lost luggage may never be seen again. Think carefully what you want to take with you. Since Mercury and Jupiter are so optimistic in Sagittarius, wait to sign papers. Being trusting, they may overlook important words or the lack of them. It may be innocent, naive, or an out and out scam! Mercury may clarify what Jupiter is hoping for, but may also exaggerate and overwhelm Neptune who only ever wanted a quiet life behind the scenes. Either you have to jump in and grab Neptune before he retreats, or gentle down your approach so he doesn’t shut down right before your eyes. Tell the truth or not, but if you do, do it very kindly. The lot of you might get in some funny or not so funny trouble. Try to leave drugs/alcohol out of it. Being too smart or arrogant may not play so well. So just go to the concert instead?! Mercury makes the exact square Monday the 24th at 4:33 PM. Caution Fri/Sat/Sun nights, drive carefully Monday afternoon. No dares, no races, no bets. Be safe.

Mars is trining Moon’s North Node. The North Node is spanning the Full Moon axis, with the North Node in Moon’s own sign Cancer, the South in Capricorn. The nodes work for balance between old, what used to be, the South Node, and what’s needed now, the North Node. These signs are classic, the vertical axis of the natural astrological chart. North is at the bottom of the chart, South is at the top. The Bottom is at home, with Mother and children, while the top is Father out in the world making wages, establishing the family’s reputation. Mars in Pisces is sensitively offering new ideas. He could be so subtle that Cancer never realizes what was said in passing conversation was so important. Pay attention to what the new person in the group is about or is saying. 

Pluto took the Light with him down under, below the Ecliptic Oct 30! Now Kundalini and Phoenix style he is ‘raising’ Hell, LOL! What an awesome job. The mighty midterm elections brought more ethnicity, more women, and LBGTQ! Pluto will have to make many powerful yet delicate shifts to bring these new people into productive work in their new jobs, help them stand tall yet balanced, to facilitate and establish their new ideas into a working part of our fabric. This Full Moon is equipped to help see many facets that need to be harmonized. Cancer and Capricorn want the best for their children, the generations. Likely, environmental matters – extremes of weather, clean air and water, good soil for food, housing, will be important to them, as well as medicine and education. They are what we astrologers call Cardinal signs, the ones who get things moving. They stand strong for fundamental truths.

In the long term, these events will be leading up to the Nov 16, 2019 Transit of Mercury and Nov 19, 2019 Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! 

In respect and full honor, Blessed be…

Capricorn New Moon Solar Eclipse!

Saturday January 5, 2019 at 5:28 PM Pacific, 15 Capricorn 25. 

Solar Eclipse, 5 Planet Capricorn Stellium, Jupiter/Saturn with Neptune!

Capricorn 2019 New Moon Milky Way Monument Valley AZ John Vermette

Happy New Year! First Lunar event of 2019! First Eclipse of 2019! First of three 5 Planet Stelliums of 2019! The Eclipse is the important lunar event before 2019’s First two outer planet aspects, Jupiter square and Saturn sextile Neptune Jan 13 and 31st (reversed numbers – 13/31!)!

Mercury, Saturn, Moon & Sun, and Pluto, all in Capricorn, are celebrating the start of 2019! The second 5 Planet Stellium is in Virgo, the third is in Capricorn again at the end of 2019.

In the Stellium….

Mercury is strong and hard working in Capricorn, getting the word out on the New Year Agenda. He wants a commitment, how much and when, by whom. He is coming up from behind the Capricorn group, will first confer with Saturn to get the top priorities, the latest news.

Mercury is square Mars. In Capricorn, likely Mercury is shaking his finger at Mars, saying slow down! Mars in Aries wasn’t born to slow down! He’s frisky as hell and loving scaring everyone around! He’s leading the way and no one’s going to stop him! New territory always has that fresh feel, goes right to his head! Mercury will have but a few moments to catch his attention, so get to the point and don’t make it sound like an order, LOL. See how you can help him, not hinder him! Could try a little reverse psychology, or dare him though… Mercury will square him exactly at 2:04 AM Pacific the 8th, so the 7th is the day it peaks. Mars could trip Mercury up, take up his time, yell at him, be annoying, be of no help at all, and not even listen. Mars himself could fall or need help and there goes Mercury’s plans for the day. Ok. Be careful, do the best you can.    

Saturn is in his own sign, and his responsibilities almost seem to have doubled, though Capricorns are tough and determined. He will find a way. Likely he’s the boss and can get some help, just needs to keep tabs on the crew and the project on track. If he’s a new year father, he’s probably as proud as burst buttons, and a wee bit tired too. Parents and elders may figure in strongly.

Jupiter & Saturn Jupiter is not in the stellium but forms the first of the two most important aspects in the chart, the two most important of 2019! They are active now through November 2019, preceding the two extraordinary sister aspects, the Transit of Mercury and Jupiter conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER!!! The two eleven months aspects will each happen 3 times, the more difficult yet creative one is first, each time followed by the one that figures out how to do what can be done! The first two are in January, the retrograde pair are close Jun 16/18, the last two are apart from each other in Sep and Nov. 

2019’s first aspect Jan 13 is Jupiter square Neptune. There is so much going on at times confusion reigns, things can get a bit hysterical – sometimes scary – you could get lost, but it can be both entertaining and delightfully rampant as well, depending on where you are standing! Jupiter, in his own sign Sagittarius, is aiming to rev up the motors, expand Neptune’s range of attention, and that’s almost an inconceivable idea because Neptune, especially in its own sign Pisces, is so all encompassing to begin with! But Jupiter, robust and mostly innocent in his cheerful intent to be benevolent, is undaunted. This is a rather friendly square. Neither one minds a little fascinating random chaos. Saturn follows each of the three Jupiter squares with his sextile to Neptune, calming things down. Sextiles offer opportunity, and out of that chaos, practical Saturn extracts what’s usable and doable, condenses it, converts it to productive function. Not bad.

Moon & Sun are sporting the first Eclipse of 2019, a Solar Eclipse! This pup is a partial, visible in Asia and the western Pacific. Not our turn. New Moons always seem quiet because the night is dark, but together in the heavens, they are in recharge mode! Moon is getting infused by Sun’s Light! She is the liaison between Sun and Earth, us! This time they are exactly lined up with us, so expect some surprising Capricorn potency! Did you take that responsibility you said you would? Are you clear about your commitments? Are you keeping your calendar up to date? Moon rules our everyday life, taking care of the kids, food, giving us hugs. But she also collects and remembers as she goes throughout our community, so let’s Sun know what’s needed. She soothes his fiery Spirit, encourages him to stay Bright. She gets tired, Sun knows, so he burns away her worries, makes her secretly feel like the Mother of all Amazons! She winks, gives him a cute little curtsy, and she’s back to work. Who would have ever known that happened?  

Moon is in Capricorn, her opposite sign, so she acts like a liaison from her natural sign Cancer to Capricorn as well! Sun shines forever, rather impervious, and Capricorn, utterly dedicated, has no time for chit chat. Plus, Cap is the citadel protecting Sun. This conjoining with the Moon is likely the most receptive he will be. Moon is very sensitive; she syncs up with him. He knows her sincere caring and listens well, cherishes her insights. 

The New Moon has just sextiled Neptune, gathering in masses of perception. They are separating the wheat from the chaff that will help Saturn make his decisions when he sextiles Neptune. Sun is putting the light on what glows; Moon sings a little song of her own making when she likes a special little bit. Saturn is already very close to the sextile, only just over 2 degrees to go, so the process is in full bore.

Pluto is the most powerful, the last planet in Capricorn. Moon will feel her way by him 4:12 AM Pacific the next morning. She is fresh from the Sun, looks into some of the dark places, spreads a little Light in the key core places, gives him a hug. She listens to Pluto’s hum. He tells her what to be careful about, shoots her a little healing and on she goes. Sun himself gets there 3:36 AM Pacific on the 11th. That can be one of the most wealthy combinations in the zodiac! It can be major healing or transitioning right out of this life. Relationships are crucial. Do the right thing. Mercury makes the connection 12:01 PM Pacific the 18th. Believe me, it will be a crazy day for some. Wild things open the doors and Mercury will be there to take a look, OMG! That info will be recorded and passed along, possibly quite carefully. Could be wiser to observe and hold for later. If it’s revelation time, then go with it, but stay safe. All these connections will have root resonance in the Eclipse. Take some time that day to think what outcomes you would like and keep that in mind as you make your decisions.

Saturn closes to less than 3 degrees of Pluto when Saturn retrogrades, turns back, April 29, 2019. They don’t conjunct until January 12, 2020! That will be a heck of a time! The conjunction occurs in another Capricorn 5 Planet Stellium. Jupiter stands alone, but Sun, Saturn, Pluto and Mercury, 4 planets, are ALL WITHIN 3 DEGREES of each other! Since Pluto has been in Capricorn for some time, having Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, there too will certainly amplify the Capricorn factor. Saturn, the Builder, wants to make sure Pluto achieves his goals! Pluto might take the troublemakers down, could be a major power play, take over! Financially it could be our worst fears, depression like circumstances. Gird your loins! Saturn/Capricorn might bring the law and Pluto doesn’t get away with it anymore. Saturn with Pluto happens on average every 34 years. It will have prime significance to the 2020 Presidential election. 

Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, classically has to do with money, inheritances, mortgages, taxes, insurance, bankruptcy, funding, lifelong love/cheating, intimacy and sexuality, obsessions, murder/rape, medical research/healing – extremes. Vitally it has to do with toxins/poisons/sewage and clean water – purification. Capricorn/Saturn is one’s life work, community reputation, fathering/mentoring, elderhood. It is the Builder/architect, timing, being a realist, Law and Science, sustainability – exemplary wise use of resources, composers, the CEO or doing as you are told. 

So many important things are on the table. Call in your experts, get educated, share and learn, VOTE, encourage others to vote! Support leaders for change that affects us for the better, long term sustainability for our children. What we do now makes a difference to the 2020 outcome, and that to the future beyond.

Venus in Scorpio Outside the Stellium!

At the Full Moon Venus was sweet on Neptune. Now she has just been loving on Chiron. From the DreamMaker to the the Shaman. She brings Neptune’s spiritual impressions that Chiron may apply the latest ones to his healing work. It’s a smooth transference because they are both in Pisces. Chiron can be good in partnerships and business. Venus in Scorpio introduces valuable connections both for love and money! She sees what will bring the most rewards, has added her touch of beauty and class, charisma, and lots of love. Makes a difference. 

Venus will inconjunct, obliquely connect with, Uranus in Aries. They are so very different. Venus wants a personal connection; Uranus in Aries is looking far ahead, single handedly at times, rarely even wants a personal connection. She may catch a glimpse of what he sees, but she will likely remain on her track. Scorpio has power from within. Uranus has power from humanity. She could do fundraising for his amazing cause. His tribe could become her tribe, but the connection with him personally isn’t likely no matter how fascinating he is, and few catch her eye. But with or without him, she will find herself wondering about the road less traveled. She’s no wimp and Scorpio, though can be the deepest of partners, also likes being perfectly alone. Don’t be surprised if you find her at an unexpected place happily all by herself. On her new motorcycle.

Stretch your Spirit in every direction. Laugh with the Capricorn Wizard! S/he’ll take you there!

Full Frost Moon!

Nov 22 the Sun leaps into Sagittarius at 1:02 AM Pacific, on ThanksGiving Day! The stage has been set. The Full Frost Moon is that evening at 9:39 PM Pacific, 0 Gemini/Sagittarius 52! It’s on Nov 23 at 12:39 AM EASTERN time!

Mercury Retrograde. T Square, Kite, Cardinal Grand Square ~ all linked! 

Sagittarius 2018 Full Travelers Moon
This one is called the Beaver or Frost Moon, but this year we might as well call it the Travelers’ Moon! It’s on ThanksGiving Day and whether you are going home to be with family or taking advantage of the holiday to take a trip, many are going to be on the road or in that plane! 

AND, this is the first lunar event, and I do mean first, it and Jupiter are at zero degrees, with Jupiter now in his own sign Sagittarius – the planet and sign of travelers! Apropos it is since the Full Moon spans Gemini (Moon) to Sun sign Sagittarius conjunct Jupiter, on the first day of 2018 Sagittarius!!! Arms open wide, Moon and Sun cross the dimensions. Gemini is fascinated by every single encounter with any possible living or inanimate thing at its fingertips! Sagittarius would walk 100 miles to see what is over that next hill and who might be there! Gemini thinks 100 miles a minute while Sagittarius is contemplating what it all means and is making plans to go another 100, knowing there is more! 

Mars sits at a T point to the Moon, Sun and Jupiter! His temperament is very different than theirs. They are chatty and heady compared with him in Pisces. He is a leader, but in Pisces can take complete silence. He can lead from behind or within, yet get him on a pulpit and the fire comes out! He can surprisingly lead the fray, an inspired compassionate leader in behalf of those who suffer. He is sensitive to what needs doing now to save the most later. His sensitivity avoids mistakes, gets right to the heart of things.

Sun and Jupiter are backed by a Grand Trine/Kite that finished Nov 19. Sun was in Scorpio then, received advice from Chiron in Pisces and the Moon’s North Node in Moon’s sign Cancer. Chiron gave tips on healing the Soul, the helpless and hopeless, other leaders involved with planetary healing. The Cancer North Node impressed Sun with the organic need for food and shelter, cleanliness and emotional support. Sun now in Sagittarius wants people to know, and put programs in place to get people on their feet, to be able to be contributing citizens.

Moon sits sextile midpoint between Chiron and Moon’s own North Node. And, she is one point of that T Square! She links them. First, as sextile Chiron and the Node, she too got the information Sun and Jupiter did! Where Sun & Jupiter in Sag are promoters, the Moon rules our shelter, women, children, the public at large. She knows the feelings of the times. She’s like a weather barometer that helps us make our moves at the times best for their reception. Sextiles of water and earth, she was in Taurus then, blend understanding and application. Taurus wants it to be anchored and long serving. Now in Gemini she’s spreading the word, getting thinking going. Next thing you know you are on the volunteer list!

There is a Cardinal Grand Square too! Cardinal signs get things going! Uranus is the Chief in Aries, leader, first responder! He thinks in terms of from the loner to all humanity! Getting one pivotal key person started can become an avalanche of success, worldwide achievement! Venus, in her own sign Libra, is sweeting her way along mending rifts, introducing strangers of great differences, blessing the day with beauty. She explains legalities and has teeth when she needs them. Don’t underestimate her. The Moon’s Nodes are the second axis – Capricorn south, Cancer North. We have been no nonsense business people before, building solidly a day at a time, supervising the troops, buying time, doing research and testing. Now we are adding in Cancerian caring, nurturing with quality food and comforting, offering personal support in community matters, the Sacred Feminine. Children are our treasures of the future.  

Uranus sits midpoint semisextile between Chiron and Moon! He links all three configurations, The Mars T Square, the Grand Trine and the Grand Cardinal Square. These are all action oriented combinations.

Venus is no longer retrograde, but Mercury is now since Nov 16. See more about Venus/Mercury Retrograde! It’s especially significant to this Full Moon since Mercury is Gemini’s planet! Communications are essential to spreading the good word. When Mercury/Gemini exchanges across the table to Sagittarius, he knows the information will go far and wide for free! Sagittarius loves telling stories, educating, sharing perspectives, opening minds to a vast array of information. Travel blogs to tomes. The retrograde function keeps reviewing, stirring the pot, incorporating insights that have come along.

Mercury squares Neptune. Mercury is pretty clear in Sagittarius, has his opinions. He has his usual ‘chatter’ but in Sag he’s looking for meaning too. He’s more likely to pick a direction. Or, he’s scattered more than ever with all those Sag possibilities in mind. Retrograde makes for a lot of quick mind changing. Neptune too can go either way. Either it’s mass confusion and illusion, or you would give your life for what you are dedicated to! Mercury is usually logical, Neptune is famous for those psychic curve balls! Good thing Mercury is quick on his feet in a fire sign, like a flash in Sagittarius, the sign of the nimble traveler avoiding the potholes! Good luck!

Saturn is making his own notes in his own sign Capricorn. He’s tallying, watching for what works, how much time it will take, materials needed. To him it seems like a zoo for the moment. He is wisely waiting for the dust to settle a bit. 

Pluto took the Light with him down under, below the Ecliptic Oct 30! Now Kundalini and Phoenix style he is ‘raising’ Hell, LOL! What an awesome job. The mighty midterm elections brought more ethnicity, more women, and LBGTQ! Pluto will have to make many powerful yet delicate shifts to bring these new people into productive work in their new jobs, help them stand tall yet balanced, to facilitate and establish their new ideas into a working part of our fabric. This Full Moon is equipped to help see the many facets that need to be harmonized. The ‘shifting sands’ of these mutable signs, Gemini and Sagittarius can be like quicksand swallowing you up, or a mixing bowl bringing each thing that needs work to the surface so it can be dealt with. Mutable signs are known to be in motion, adaptable – sometimes accommodating, other times taking you with them! 

In the long term, these events will be leading up to the Nov 16, 2019 Transit of Mercury and Nov 19, 2019 Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! 

Astronomical note! Our Full Moon is occuring at the same time as what is called the Pleiadian Alignment that started Nov 15, finishing Nov 23, the day after ThanksGiving! Earth, Moon 0 Gemini, Sun and the Pleiades 0 Gemini are precisely in a row! They were known as the Weeping Sisters, in old horary astrology, something to weep about. Lord knows we in California have had just that with the deadly Camp Fire and the sad losses with the Woolsey Fire. Some organic astrologers equate the weeping with rain. We are hoping for a steady light rain that our scorched land can absorb. The Pleiades are also called the Seven Sacred Sisters, with various mythologies about them, feminine, intuitive. Please allow a special channel to flow between us all. Blessed be. 

Also, take some special time this Full Moon day to consider what to do and make plans to do it. Review the 2019 Annual Special Edition. Jot notes in your calendar. Don’t worry if it isn’t perfect. Start as you can. Expect intelligent modifications to occur, a few natural mistakes. Mercury is retrograde, changing things on purpose, and it shouldn’t all go as planned, but, in time, even better! Evolution is the constant of change!

New Moon!

Thursday December 6 Mercury DIRECT 1:22 PM Pacific then the New Moon at 11:20 PM Pacific, 15 Sagittarius 07. It’s on December 7 in all the other US Time zones east of Pacific. 

Mercury Direct! Jupiter in own sign & New Moon in Sagittarius! Grand Square, Grand Trine, Mars/Neptune, 15°!

New Moon Sagittarius 2018 Milky Way Yellowstone

Photographer Dave Lane says a storm just passed before he captured this beautiful sight at Yellowstone National Park in 2015. He spent 4 months color-correcting the night time images to match them to the natural colors seen in the daytime at Yellowstone National Park. See the image large! See Dave’s photography tips!

This is the first New Moon during Jupiter in Sagittarius and the New Moon is IN Sagittarius! Hallelujah! It’s a double Sag chart plus Jupiter is in his own sign Sagittarius! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. This is a 12 year restart for Jupiter! Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times. Each New Moon is the wellspring of sign it is in, a fresh charge, and a pure source of that energy. And it’s the perfect support  for Jupiter! In his sign Sagittarius, Sun shines for him and Moon can feel the Sag messages so important to share! Make notes! Schedule to review and update them from time to time!

Mercury is no longer retrograde! Mercury Rx returns to Scorpio Dec 1 and Venus enters Scorpio Dec 2 at 9:02 AM Pacific. Mercury entered an intense Station (appearing to standstill) for 8 days in the last degrees of Scorpio! The Scorpio messages will be steeped, condensed, focused on, anchored in place. Decide what you want to keep as core guidance, let the rest go. Your foundation is set, move on with Venus’s blessing. Mercury turns direct, forward, Dec 6, the heart of the station, on the Sagittarius NEW MOON! The turn, very slow at first, has been made. After the next four days the findings will start being released, momentum will be gained. Mercury returns to Sagittarius Dec 12. He will be downloading the information to Jupiter Dec 12, leaving nothing out, until he conjuncts Jupiter Winter Solstice, Yule, Dec 21! Venus will be left behind on her own, still in Scorpio. See more: Venus/Mercury Retrograde Back to Back!

This chart is rather simple – you can see in the chart there are few aspects made – the color connector lines. What is exciting is that the point of the red triangle and the big blue triangle are linked!

There is the red, triangle that actually represents a Grand Square of Uranus, Venus and the Moon’s Nodes! It is quite odd in its combination. Uranus is in fire sign Aries retrograde. It will be squared by the Moon’s North Node in it’s own sign Cancer, also retrograde. Since the node moves faster, it will make the square while both of them are retrograde. Uranus in fiery Aries couldn’t be more his own man, complete loner to a leader of humanitarian efforts. Either way he is consumed, others have to come to him. Moon’s North Node in its own water sign Cancer is more likely to stay home unless it is a matter of taking care of the children. Venus is also in a water sign, Scorpio, still close but leaving them both behind. Water signs are usually trine, a harmonious aspect, but here they are square, somewhat at odds yet in compatible signs. It’s a similar setup for Venus ‘opposite’ Uranus. Oppositions are usually in opposite signs, which oddly have some compatibility. In this case they would be Aries/Libra – fire/air or Taurus/Scorpio – earth/water. But these are not. They are Fire/Water. Could be steamy, but Venus, of Libra has had enough of that upstart Aries, no finesse she thinks. Or she is impressed, and takes up his cause. In charismatic Scorpio she is looking for love and money, or wants to be around involvement with deep healing skills and centers for homeless, hospice, addictions. She’s blessed and not afraid of the dark side or being behind the scenes. Oh, the juicy secrets! She is not just a pretty face; she will do more than expected and more than we will ever know. Give her the reigns, yet check on her from time to time for your own peace of mind. 

There is the blue Grand Water Trine. The Moon’s North Node links the Grand Square with the Trine. Trines are considered a blessed configuration and the North Node too. North Node is our aspiration, balance with the South. In this trine, Mercury is exactly at the same degree and minute, giving deeper facts and wisdom from Scorpio, who has faced life and death. The North Node in Cancer wants to protect its own, so is quite grateful and now more able to secure resources and the safety of loved ones. Though the Node, always moving backwards through the signs, and Chiron are parting, Chiron in Pisces saw the weak points and showed the Node how to apply healing of spirit, as Scorpio showed the Node healing remedies. In turn, The node offered a nurturing place to stay, free of obsessions and addictions, instead a safe place with innocent babies and children that give us the reason to say clean and sober, to not stray from the organic reasons for being here together. Many times healers need to heal themselves. This trine is a great gift.

This trine helps calm the red lines. Uranus needs to be free, but how free? We are all a part of each other. We breathe the same air. Be free to be sweet. Pay more attention to the living beings around you doing the best they can. Be free to be able to receive love. Being touched by the Spirit of others makes a living difference. Venus in Scorpio can be enamored with her own seductive beauty that may be the source of her money. She may forget she too is a part of a web of dear humans that would love and admire her for more of what she is rather than what she has. They will love her when she is wrinkled and gray. She may be so wrapped up in giving healing she forgets herself. Open those pretty eyes, lift that chin, see and feel the love people have for you. Keep the balance.

The New Moon itself not in either pattern! In fact, it is virtually standing alone numerically. Both Moon and Sun recently squared Mars and Neptune, but, traveling faster, Moon and Sun are leaving them behind. What they will carry with them is the spice of Mars’s dreams while he has been close with Neptune. Mars has been inspired by Neptune’s amazing insights. Mars isn’t noted for being subtle, but he is in Neptune’s sign with Neptune. He is being steeped in Spirit. Aligned, he sees the vision too. Neptune is in Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac. Mars is the planet of Aries, the first sign of the zodiac! It’s alpha and omega, the beginning and the end! What one starts the other must end. What one dreams the other must begin! Both are planets of Initiation, one through perceptions and visions, the other through the action taken in their behalf! Leadership is often born of what we see that needs saving.

Mars makes the exact conjunction Dec 7 at 6:12 AM Pacific, so essentially, the daytime operative hours are the same day as the New Moon! Two beginnings at once! It is also true that Neptune and Pisces may obscure your vision and accuracy. You or what’s out there may seemingly be ‘invisible.’ Please be careful if you feel tired, distressed, or even super ‘high.’ You may not be as invincible as you imagine, and poor judgment may be your undoing. It’s ok to slow down. We are all on God’s time. Illusion and confusion, intentional deception, could take you on a wrong lead for a time. If necessary, admit your mistake, get help if necessary, and get back on track. Some of these experiences will strengthen you. You won’t fall prey again, and you will guide others away from these traps. The other side of that same coin is a breakthrough! Your perception may be so heightened you can see like never before! You are guided to do the perfect right thing at the right moment. Blessed be. If you are in water sports, you could be the impassioned winner, the hero of the day!

Special info for those of you with 14, 15, 16° factors in your charts! The Libra New Moon Oct 8 started a 7 month series of New Moons at 15° of their signs. Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries New Moons are each at the 15° midpoint of their signs. By midway, they ‘learn’ their sign and are tipping in favor of maturity and completion. All these Moons are resonant to each other! Each represents a turning point, a choice point on how to proceed further, a balance within their sign. Some of the signs will be in harmony aspects to the others, ie Libra and Sagittarius will make sextiles and trines to other air and fire signs. This one in Sagittarius will square the one in Pisces and trine the last one in Aries. Scorpio will make trines and sextiles with other earth and water signs. The master Capricorn Solar Eclipse Jan 5, 2019, however, the first 2019 lunar event, will be midpoint between Libra and Aries, the first and last signs in the series! A lot will hinge on his decisions and influence the remaining three, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries.

Saturn is still making his own notes in his own sign Capricorn. He’s tallying, watching for what works, how much time it will take, materials needed. To him it seems like a zoo for the moment. He is wisely waiting for the dust to settle a bit.

Pluto is still pondering, likely will be strongly for a couple more years, how he took the Light with him down under, below the Ecliptic Oct 30! He now, Kundalini and Phoenix style, is ‘raising’ Hell, LOL! What an awesome job. The mighty midterm elections brought more ethnicity, more women, and LBGTQ! It will be an ongoing responsibility to make many powerful yet delicate shifts to bring these new people into productive work in their new jobs, help them stand tall yet balanced, to facilitate and establish their new ideas into a working part of our fabric. 

This New Moon is strengthening our purpose. It’s about making meaningful and realistic plans about things that matter to our future. It’s the walk of a lifetime.

Full Strawberry Moon! Building a Better World! 

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

Cancer 2018 Full Strawberry Moon

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cancer New Moon 2018 Sunset Crater Volcano

A homespun calico blue gingham New Moon sky studded with Milky Way stars! Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument​, Flagstaff AZ ~ image by Christian Heeb via Getty Images

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

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

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


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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cancers Feed the Tribe, Body and Soul…

Cancer Chef Anthony Bourdain dining with Prez Obama

Cancer born June 25, 1956. Let’s celebrate the life of renowned and much loved, inspiring Chef, Host, Author & Adventure-seeker Anthony Bourdain who is no longer with us on this Earth plane. CNN said of chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain: “His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink, and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller.”

Formerly the chef at Les Halles in New York City, Bourdain broke into national fame with his book Kitchen Confidential. He landed on the Food Network with A Cook’s Tour, then gained a broader audience as star of Travel Channel’s Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. He moved to CNN in 2013, where Season 11 of his show premiered last month. Peabody Award judges honored Bourdain’s Parts Unknown in 2013 for “expanding our palates and horizons in equal measure.”

Cancers are strong on home, and Chef’s home was the whole world. In his own mothering way, he integrated across cultural, racial, and status divides. Chef was a champion active in social causes, particularly in highlighting the role of immigrant workers in restaurant kitchens. For years, he was vocal about how immigrants are the backbone of the industry but that their contributions are marginalized and ignored.

Bourdain was so true to himself. He dropped out of college in the early 1970s and transferred to The Culinary Institute of America. Cancers are often artists and photographers ~ well, he put you right there in the picture with his words that made you see and feel what he was telling you! “I wanted it all: the cuts and burns on hands and wrists, the ghoulish kitchen humor, the free food, the pilfered booze, the camaraderie that flourished within rigid order and nerve-shattering chaos,” he wrote. “I love the sheer weirdness of the kitchen life: the dreamers, the crackpots, the refugees, and the sociopaths with whom I continue to work; the ever-present smells of roasting bones, searing fish, and simmering liquids; the noise and clatter, the hiss and spray, the flames, the smoke, and the steam.”

Chef was open to the core, the good, the bad and the ugly. He lived big and broad. He kicked addictions to heroin and cocaine. He was twice married and divorced, and had a daughter, Ariane. Recently, he had shared photos together with his girlfriend, actress and filmmaker Asia Argento. Asia said “He was my love, my rock, my protector. I am beyond devastated.”

Cancers take you under their wing like an old broody hen, make us feel safe. “Journalists drop into a situation, ask a question, and people sort of tighten up,” Bourdain said. “Whereas if you sit down with people and just say, ‘Hey what makes you happy? What do you like to eat?’ They’ll tell you extraordinary things, many of which have nothing to do with food.”

Obama said: “Low plastic stool, cheap but delicious noodles, cold Hanoi beer. This is how I’ll remember Tony. He taught us about food — but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together. To make us a little less afraid of the unknown. We’ll miss him.”

See Tony’s astrology chart. With Mercury and Venus in Gemini he had an additional gift with words. In Leo, Jupiter in close conjunction with Pluto gave him bold intensity that left no stone unturned, triggered revelation. They made him a teacher with a big heart, a consummate performer. Sadly, those two in T Square with Saturn in Scorpio, and with his Mars in Pisces, led to his demise at his own hands. His birthtime is unknown ~ the Moon was either Capricorn or Aquarius, and his Ascendant is unknown. Whatever his ascendant is, it made him 6′ 4″ tall, and taller yet in Spirit. RIP dear Soul.

Cancer 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Mars July 2018 compared 2020 NASA

Mars to Shine Brighter This Summer Than It Has in 15 Years

  • Over the course of the next several weeks, the distance between the Earth and the Red Planet will shrink.
  • It will shift from the predawn sky to the night sky
  • Mars will be brighter than Jupiter July 7 to September 7, brightest the morning of July 31, brighter than Jupiter by some 1.8 times!
  • The next time Mars comes as close as it will this summer won’t occur again until Sept. 15, 2035.
Amazingly, for a period of about two months, Mars will supplant Jupiter as the fourth brightest celestial body, after the sun, moon and Venus. Mars’ reign as the fourth-brightest celestial body (or third brightest in the nighttime sky, after the moon and Venus) will last from about July 7 to September 7.

Solstice Facts!

Solstice brings extremes of daylight and darkness
In N. Hemisphere, noontime shadows are shortest at this solstice
Longest day for N. Hemisphere, but not the latest sunset
Shortest day for S. Hemisphere, but not the latest sunrise
The slowest sunsets come around the solstices

Cancer 2018  Timeline!

June
21 Happy Summer Solstice! Happy Cancer!
26 Mars Retrograde
27 Full Strawberry Moon Capricorn/Cancer

July
7  Mercury Retrograde cycle starts
12 New SuperMoon Solar Eclipse!
16 Chiron/Uranus semisextile
22 Happy Leo!
25 Mercury in Leo starts double Retrograde

Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Gemini’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde back into their previous signs, and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see in their next signs. Chiron shifted from Pisces to Aries April 17. Less than a month later, Uranus shifted from Aries to Taurus May 15! Late in the year, Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8.

Chiron and Uranus have both made their first sign changes. It has been Chiron at 51 years and Uranus at 84 years, since they were last in these signs! Uranus has been in Aries, fire, and just shifted into Taurus, earth, May 15. No surprise Tutu Pele, Hawaiian Goddess of Fire, is venting, making lava fire of molten earth, changing the shape of Earth ~ both creator and destroyer! Volcán de Fuego in Guatemala was next. The next outer planet sign change Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces September 25. We will review our choices and remember why some things are so important to our Spirits, how healing of subtle factors can be as crucial as laying your bricks in a straight line.

Cancer 2018 hosts no major outer planet aspects, but nurtures us in the aftermath of various shifts and schisms, nurtures us to step into our future selves.

RETROGRADES emphasis! As of May 12, we started into the Mars/Mercury Double Retrograde sequence. Gemini, one of Mercury’s signs, further emphasizes this passage! See the Timeline above please. July 25 to Aug 18 we have Mars and Mercury retrograde AT THE SAME TIME! Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrogrades back to back! Literally months of retrograde!

With the multiple sign changes and retrogrades, things will be dug up, soil turned, soups, stews and mixed salads made! We will all be quite different and get used to multiple kinds of change! We will be more comprehensive, more aware and alert to things we never considered before, expanded – to say the least!

Oct 30, Pluto crosses the Golden Ecliptic at Pluto’s South Node, going from North to South! This is a once every 248 years event! See more!

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background! More

Outer Planet Transits with Cancer 2018 – July 2019!

Cancer Toddlers playing late day sunny road

Remember when you were little? Who did you want to be and where did you go? Cancer’s journey begins in the womb, the Mother place that means so much to them. Intuitive as they are, they pick up a lot even then. Sometimes they ‘stay home,’ live their parents’ expectations. Other times they are the leaders over the divides of decades and cultural expectations, and against the odds ‘take their parents with them.’ Whether you are the Little Prince (author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry a Cancer), Alice in Wonderland (Lewis Carroll, Moon conjunct the ASC Sagittarius) or Cinderella (Charles Perrault birthtime unknown), maybe it’s your time to take the lead, kindly, in a good way.

Pluto in Capricorn reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018 moving from 18 to 23 degrees. 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! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 21 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in these degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Cancer, Moon, and Pluto, Scorpio, have resonance as water signs and planets. Capricorn opposite Cancer is something else. One, they are the traditional axis of Father/Mother, child/parent, feminine/masculine, home/career, emotions/science. Both are traditional. Cancer loves genealogy, family culture, antiques. Capricorn rules patriarchal authorities, elders and archaeology, bones and homes of the past. Their ultimate goal together is for their children to flourish and carry on the best the family has to offer. Capricorn can seem harsh to Cancers, who ruled by the 27 day lunar cycle, the Moon, have unpredictable emotions. They need a little wiggle room, and Cappies like law and order, no fooling around or wasting time on invisible things! There are times of strain unless Capricorn sees the value of intuition, comforts Cancer through certain times, and acknowledges all things are not 100% scientific!

Neptune is in its own sign, 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 13 and 18 degreeswill be activated with this pure energy! Cancer may not be as spiritually intent as Neptune/Pisces, but she does know family comes first! That’s her spiritual goal! There’s little time for addictions, zero time for being the martyr when your kids need you. Yet she shares that uncanny intuition, and values the insights her dreams give her. She has lunar cycles, while Neptune/Pisces have tidal cycles. Cancer and Neptune understand things come and go, ebb and wane, return and leave, live and die. Children grow up, the Soul quests the Universe. Some things are just bigger than others, from a grain of tidal sand to the new and full Moons of Cancer that correlate with the tides of Neptune. They are as one. Cancer cherishes time to sit quietly. It’s good to know there are oceanic options always there should she decide to leave home.

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

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

Cancer is pushed off center by Aries, and sudden changes that come by both Uranus and Aries! If you want to keep on with what your Mother did, family traditions, you may be chagrined or if you have a few rebel bones too, delighted to find new ways to carry on! Uranus and Aries generally don’t have time to coddle or cater to your feelings, you might have to give a mighty yell to get their attention, in fact! At times their doings are more important in the long term, and you come to see that and resent them less. But you can feel abandoned and neglected. You can help them learn better how to deal with the average citizen who doesn’t have as mighty a project out there on the fringes. You might like what they are doing, but not how they are doing it when dealing with humans, children. If you are a supporter, they are lucky to have you. Compared to odd/exotic Uranians, an ‘ordinary’ Cancer can take that project to the town hall meeting and get it launched!

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

Cancer is still leery of Uranus, but in Taurus as least it is more calm. Taurus can be patient, but perhaps not so patient about environmentalism and sustainability. They want things to last. And so do Cancers who by nature need security. Food comes from the land, and Cancers make meals for their family. They want good quality, organic if possible, food. Taurus is our bodies, and Cancer knows how important right balance of nutrients is and to keep steady with exercise. More of us may find ourselves with furry pets. Research says our pets help us live longer and that goes well with Cancer who wants to live long and well to take care of their loved ones. Uranus in Taurus interventions are more likely to be well received.

Chiron, like Neptune has also been in Pisces, but now is in Aries, and covers different degrees, 27 Pisces to 5 Aries, close to the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces for a while later on. See more. These are the last and first of the zodiac signs! Pisces believes; Aries takes action! Chiron entered Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees and signs, 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 vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head, brain and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Cancer is good with the fellow nurturer Chiron and the Spirit healer Pisces, body and Soul. Cancer knows there is more than what we see with our eyes. Pisces has its dreams and visions, Cancer has an array of feeler emotions that reach out and see their own way. Cancer is happy with Chiron’s remedies and understanding, tenderness with children and animals, ones that have Soul sicknesses. Knowing someone who ‘knows’ is there makes Cancer feel safer, so they are less crabby. And Cancer loves learning! Since security is on Cancer’s list, she likes Chiron’s business ideas too! Might even open her own business!

On a 51 year cycle, Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years, through 2027. Time to get more used to Aries. Chiron is well intended, wants you to have a better life, commiserates all too well since he himself carries a wound that won’t heal. Considering conditions in some aspects of the world today, we will likely be grateful for some push from Aries. Cancer knows how things can be swept under the carpet. Cancer can tend to get overweight and turn into a homebody in denial. But the world continues on around us. We are needed as teachers, and Cancers are relentless scholars! Aries wants us to be the leader, on the cutting edge. They need the historic facts to back their play. Be ready to consult, they may need you at any moment! Chiron in Aries can get grumpy when they know something vital needs timely attention. Dr Chiron would certainly be there for you if your child was sick!

x
SATURN builds from 2 to 20 Capricorn. Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better or you start your own business!

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 2 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through July 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn stands opposite Cancer. Saturn/Capricorn can feel like a ton of bricks when Cancer is feeling sensitive. Or when Cancer is feeling sensitive, good old Saturn is their rock and we are so grateful they keep us feeling safe and steady. Every once in a while we just need to be a little lunar crazy and no amount of consoling is wanted! There are times our very instability is our ticket to intuitions, premonitions, fluid feelings that get us right where we need to be with the very right answer! Not logical but it works. Capricorn can learn that is a special kind of order they can use themselves at times. Lock down isn’t always the answer. Cancers do at times need to grow up. They can be like little adult children with that sweet face and childlike voice. You don’t know whether to believe them or not. Capricorn is the wizened child, either by face or demeanor. Take a cue from them. Take advantage of their example. Slim Cappies are noted for self-discipline and not being self-indulgent. Cancer’s addiction is food. Timing and situational events can be our undoing. Capricorn turns his energy to avoiding time wasting dangerous environments, instead, puts his attention on work, building. Balance is good.
x
JUPITER moves from 13 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!Jupiter in Scorpio! Scorpio wants you to heal, to heal your relationship and be healed by them, and increase your financial potential! Scorpio charisma is compelling, and has nothing to do with beauty. It is from a wellspring within. Scorpio is doctor hood, from cleansing your personal plumbing, purging toxins, to forensics. Scorpio often has extraordinary personal healing capacity, and can save your life too! They want to know how things work, do research. Jupiter may take Scorpio worldwide to seek investments, study shamanistic skills, find answers to lifesaving questions. Old remedies the midwives knew may come back into use. Through journalistic research justice may come for those who have suffered long extreme abuse – land grabs, sexual abuse, calculated theft, slavery/human trafficking, murdering of children and animals. Secret factions may unite for prevention, education, exposé and social justice. Be safe. If you aren’t up to par, take time out. Let your Ninja 6th sense and stealth protect you.

Jupiter is the cheerful funny lucky traveler. While in Scorpio there is a deeper note and the journey might be more as an observer behind the scenes. Cancer being the hearth bunny may see this need for silence, recovery from the intensity he has witnessed, and she may simply give him a place to rest. Or, wanting to learn, she pesters him with many questions until he says ‘Enough!’ They laugh and she leaves him alone 5 mins. She learns more about the intimacies of the world – cultural differences that people live and die for, financial gain and ruin, hate, crime and saviors. Takers and donors. Living in misery or swaddled in wealth. She changes as she listens. She’s more grateful, more determined to stand for the good things she believes in, to be more aware of what’s behind the scenes and respond more appropriately. It’s not as potent to hear it on the news and turn the news off. Your friend, who has appeared on your doorstep brings this personally, experienced it, and you can’t turn him off.

Jupiter is a fire planet in his own fire sign Sagittarius! Cancer is the first water sign, Mother’s Milk. While Sag goes racing off around the world, Cancer has the hearth fire burning right at home. Always the scholar, she is intrigued by Sag stories, and travels for free with no danger as his stories are so picturesque she can see the people and places! She knows better than to trust he will always be there for her, but he gives her the confidence of the world because he goes and comes back, generally unscathed. When he’s here, she is cheered! She in turn has more hopes for her own doings, including those uncommon recipes! Her senses are broadened, her insights more far reaching. Sag is an exciting rogue and it’s catching! The weekend trips, vacations are a little longer now, intriguing places visited. She has stories of her own to tell and the pictures to prove it! Sag enjoys the visit with this Earth Mother. He finds he is comforted by her attentions and feels bold again, good food and all, snacks packed, and off he goes!

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

Happy Birthdays, Cancers!

Cancer Family Reunion

We’ve clearly got some family resemblances at this reunion! Possible twins, Grandma and Grandpa look happy, there’s the little boy doing what little boys do! Maybe you have never had such a reunion, yours was just like this one, down home. Or maybe you all rented a hall or had dinner at a fine restaurant dressed to kill. Our families are so different, large, small. We are not perfect and we have our differences with each other, but there is love.

Bless all you Cancer sweeties! We adore you!
