Scorpio! European Space Agency trains six astronauts from all over the world in Sardinian cave!

ESA’s cave training prepares astronauts to work as an international team in real exploration conditions. Sending astronauts underground to survive and explore Sardinian caves in Italy for almost a week is just one element of their long training. The Sardinian caves are isolated from the outside world. The astronauts need to get used to confined spaces, minimal privacy, technical challenges and limited equipment and supplies for hygiene and comfort – just like in space, a lot like in Scorpio.

Background, Context!

Jupiter into Scorpio is first, Oct 10. Saturn is second, into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, leading into Winter Solstice, his own special time of year!

Sign changes set the tone and standards of their time. Each sign makes a secure platform for the next sign’s success. For example, Jupiter in Libra learns how to establish fitting relationships, connections, for Scorpio works to be shared and deepened. Saturn in Sagittarius learns everything it can to get the Capricorn job/career, to build a significant Capricorn achievement.

Jupiter makes 4 repeated aspects that started late 2016, opened 2017 and finish 11.11.17. Eleven, eleven! The most dramatic of the Jupiter set was Jupiter opposition Uranus that finished the Jupiter set Sep 27. Saturn’s two aspects, running with the Jupiter set, finish with Saturn trining Uranus, both sets finishing with an aspect to Uranus, making Uranus the key planet!

Saturn’s 11.11.17 last trine with Uranus starts a year long series of nothing but positive aspects! Uranus is the planet of awakening, Evolution, Stars, Space. Friendship alliances help us make change together to find freedom. We can be the unique specialist person we were born to be! Sometimes being alone helps us clear our mind, uninfluenced we find our unique path.

After these two with Uranus, Saturn changes Sign Dec 19 from Sagittarius to joining Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s own sign! Capricorn and Scorpio, Jupiter’s new sign, get along. In fact, Scorpio is Pluto’s sign! Capricorn is the last Earth sign. It’s majestic mountains jut up into the sky, magnificent views inspire our quests. Winter Solstice sign Capricorn builds strong because it knows what powerful weather it could need to withstand. It emphasizes necessities, knows the realities, wastes no time. The work of the Soul takes top priority.

Jupiter is in Libra until Oct 10. See Jupiter into LIBRA! While still in Libra, work for successful and elegant relationships, professional liaisons, powerful representation. Jupiter loves to learn and travel, and Libra loves art and culture. Very syncopatic combination! In Scorpio, Jupiter goes underground, scouts behind the scenes, checks the financial infrastructure, wonders if you truly love them, seeks the meaning of life and death! There comes a healing collaboration with a meaningful purpose. There is less time for simple sociality. Some relationships will be left behind, others renewed, rededicated, deepened. Profound relationships will be sought. Intensity is potent.

While in Scorpio, Jupiter makes two repeated aspects, three times each. The set starts with Jupiter trine Neptune, then sextile Pluto, Scorpio’s planet! Both are considered favorable. With Neptune there are Spiritual options, lucky dreams, oceanic business possibilities. With Pluto, there is a possible successful lifelong marriage that enhances business opportunities. Good time for recycling, restoration, remodeling and resale of properties. Could be breakthroughs in medical treatments. Fundraising at the right times may do well for years to come. Do check your personal timing with your astrologer!

In Scorpio Jupiter can get a little obsessed, ventures easily going on into the night, Scorpio’s favorite time of day. After we get used to this change of venue, two months later Saturn makes his change into his own sign Capricorn! No more fun and games, it’s time to get down to business. Less socializing, things to get done, and they do get done! May be an inch at a time, but they are determined. Each step begets another. And it multiplies and goes faster as we get used to it!

Jupiter into Scorpio October 10 

Sagittarius’ Jupiter is noted for long journeys, camping maybe. Scorpio loves things down under, dark is fine. Jupiter is a Fire planet, Scorpio is a Water sign. Sex sizzles or is steamy! Oil and gas. Definitely volcanic! You may find your Kundalini awakening full tilt!

Intense adventure with a hint of danger! Jupiter is more lucky than anyone should be and has longevity to boot! Scorpio’s sixth sense is always on, and threads through danger like through the eye of a needle! If there is an oops, Jupiter and Scorpio heal amazingly quickly. The biggest danger is distraction, losing focus, getting off track. Jupiter can spook like a horse just to see what will happen and even the best gamblers lose sometimes. Then there is the phrase, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Search and Rescue Maybe you are/were lost in Scorpio and Jupiter comes to find you. Or you are hell bent on getting away, maybe even a disappearance identity change scenario. Like the slavery underground railway you might travel by night, a long breathholding way to go. Or you love the strenuous challenge of finding people whether it is in the wilderness, underwater, or psychologically as a counselor! If there are disasters or injuries, your medical training keeps people alive. Perhaps there are matters of justice, an abuse of funds, a kidnapping. Needs to establish safe places, recovery, to restore our trust and faith!

Medical discovery requires a lot of faith as well as funding. Jupiter, ever optimistic, looks for the possibilities against the odds and in the unknown. In Scorpio there is no giving up. Scorpios know what suffering can be and how grave a danger continued suffering can be. Sometimes we love and lose with bitterness and shame. If there are physical, mental or spiritual impairments, Jupiter in Scorpio wants that to be cured as possible, or understood and there be relief. Traveling nurses and doctors will treat during epidemics and disasters, their own lives threatened, to help others.

Truth or consequences! Jupiter looks for the Truth. Scorpio has secrets, does and doesn’t look for Truth. Scorpio already knows some of the story anyway. It wants to know, but once it does, it doesn’t always share, and often for good reason. A Truth naively spoken or blurted out even with good intent, can do irreparable damage or set progress back for a long time at great cost. Revenge may be best served cold much later, but is sadly carried in a dark place in the injured person. Other times it finally comes out, all of it, and repairs can be started or a situation can finally be left behind. Jupiter will forgive, be optimistic or just move on. Scorpio, however, knows how to do endings. Loyal as they are, when they finally give up, there is no chance of going back. Zero. So, please be careful. Don’t push too hard and get zinged. Be considerate of deep feelings. You don’t have to understand or know everything. No poking the Tiger to see what it will do.

Further than you thought! Jupiter could just go on forever, and so could Scorpio. Oh my! Before you know it, you have run out of gas, it’s dark, and you didn’t pay attention to the signs! No snacks and no blankies. Oops! Hey, sometimes it’s fun to improvise and survive anyway! Or, you put your focus on it, anticipated the snags, asked for help, and got so more along that the project will be finished days in advance! You may have gotten well past half way and why turn back?!

Estimates are a snap. Jupiter can see potential and Scorpio looks for grit and knows the right price. Jupiter looks for how comprehensive your range of vision is, the scope of your education, that you won’t frivolously take chances like gambling, whether you will be a generous contributor to the greater cause. Scorpio susses out whether you can handle yourself when the chips are down and if you are astute at assessing others and their financial conditions. They will check whether you are easily seduced, can handle funds and don’t cheat with money or love. They don’t want to jeopardize their important plans. Don’t fool around; tell them what you can do very well. That’s the part they will engage you for. However, they may see a potential in you that you didn’t realize you have, and place you more accurately! Quite better than expected!

Jupiter in Scorpio with Other Signs!

Water Sign harmony! Scorpio is the second Water sign. Cancer is the Mother. Scorpio is the Other, our Life Mate. PIsces is the All is One, Spirit of Soul. Water signs flow into every crevice, are quick to see disturbances, are absorbed by feeling. Cancer wears her shell and can pinch you so you remember! Scorpio has the protective ground Scorpion, the Eagle to pierce the veils, revelation, and the Phoenix to escape. Pisces has the slithers, those fine silent fishy scales that merge and flex along waves of consciousness.

There are challenges with the other Fixed signs Taurus, Leo and Aquarius. Running away Jupiter is too frivolous and undependable for stay-with-the-land Taurus. Taurus is left behind in a heartbeat. Scorpio is opposite. While Taurus is guarding the loot, Scorpio wants to invest in the market or partner up in an investment! Leo is great with Jupiter, together inspiring each other to dramatic gestures, gamble and risk everything, teach! But Scorpio doesn’t trust them to keep their secrets and without thinking, Leo can put them on the spot. Leo spends Scorpio’s money for sure, and that gambling can be a problem. Eventually Scorpio may be forced to cut the credit access. Jupiter and Aquarius can easily run away together, wide open spaces call them, as far as you can see… Scorpio wants to know where they are, but Aquarius is no bird in the cage. Aquarius may be a total loner, and happy at it, but Scorpio needs a deep and loyal connection. Unpredictable Aquarius may have zillions of friends, but Scorpio could find them just too out of the box and is unsettled.

Fiery Aries with fire planet Jupiter are perhaps each just too independent. Either could go somewhere else in a moment. Aries and Scorpio are old soldiers, but they have different styles. Aries is a feisty frontliner while Scorpio sneaks silently behind the enemy lines invisibly, Ninja style.

Sagittarius is Jupiter’ sign, so there is rapport there, yet it is Scorpio’s neighboring sign, very different. It is as outgoing as Scorpio usually isn’t! Jupiter/Sagittarius are mutable, whimsical, changeable, while Scorpio is a fixed sign, it’s purpose to stabilize. But Sag is already gone. Poker faced Scorpio is relieved, no longer having to watch his back, protect his secrets, but misses that fun Sag who gets him out and makes him laugh. While there, Sag stirs the cauldron to see what rises! Scorpio may resist, meaning it will be no easy feat to get close enough right away, or maybe never. Often adventuring Sagittarius just won’t wait that long. Jupiter is usually well meaning, but that doesn’t mean you get the keys to the kingdom. Jupiter in Scorpio will not always be a comfortable combination.

Earth signs Virgo and Capricorn Scorpio is midway, sextile, between Virgo and Cap. Plenty of potential. What Jupiter in Scorpio can fund, those earth signs can make happen! Virgo is mutable, adaptable and generally hard working and dependable. Jupiter likes to take time off to play. But earthy Virgo and stabilizing Scorpio are detail and perfection oriented, so the bookkeeping gets done, things kept in order. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet has been in Capricorn since 2008, and will be until 2024, well established. Comparatively Jupiter in Scorpio only 1 year is a blip on the radar that Pluto will incorporate. With Jupiter in Pluto’s sign Scorpio the absorption will be easier. Some old conservative Capricorn behaviors, business structures, will linger, but if Jupiter can show them a better way and how to incorporate that with little expense and super returns, Pluto in Cap will make the changes. Jupiter sextile Pluto is a do business combination! Casual Jupiter may look the Fool, but don’t underestimate him in Scorpio. Don’t miss out on the potentials he offers.

Air signs Gemini and Libra. Jupiter has just left Libra, so what laws were made are on the books, needing to be blended in to Scorpio relationships, business and health practices. Liaison’s need to be tended. A balance has been set. Gemini is Jupiter’s sign Sagittarius’ opposite sign. Gemini provides the information Jupiter sifts to see trends. Talkative Gemini and Libra may drive quiet observant Scorpio a bit nuts at times. Have meaty info and be pithy in your brief presentation or Scorpio may turn his back, move on without you.

Jupiter Return!

Jupiter Returns are every 11 to 12 years. Jupiter comes back to the same place it was in our birth charts. Of course, the other planets currently in the sky aren’t where they were before, so each return is different, yet the essence of Jupiter with Jupiter in its birth sign, and the house (section) of your chart it is in, and the aspects it makes, are the same. A planet conjuncting itself has an effect of purity. It’s a reminder of your original intent when you were born. Jupiter Returns are considered lucky, and in Scorpio can indicate wealth! But sometimes they make us see a Truth we have been avoiding and in Scorpio it may pay to see your therapist. If there are difficulties, it may exaggerate them. Expansion and growth in this case can mean obsession/compulsion, being or becoming overweight. Or you can win the lotto! Maybe you always wanted a horse, and in Scorpio, it could be a winner! Or you take the trip of a lifetime, which might be to embark on education or training that makes all the difference! Maybe you waited a long time and finally find a partner that impresses you. This may be the time to write and publish! Jupiter tells extraordinary tales and Scorpio journalists may have a secret to write about that is more safely cloaked in a novel. A documentary could be exquisite with images to make you laugh and weep at the same time!

There are many extraordinary people who will be having or would have had their Jupiter Returns 2017/18! The Dalai Lama, David Bowie, Ellen DeGeneres, Britney Spears, Elvis Presley, Justin Bieber, Uma Thurman, Mariah Carey, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Aleister Crowley, Steven Spielberg, and, uh, Charles Manson and Ted Bundy! Many of these people are/were intense, have been in life and death situations, had huge financial circumstances, and high notoriety or charisma!

Phoenix, Eagle or bat?! Jupiter flies high like the Sagittarian arrow. The Scorpio Eagle soars, a bird of prey, with keen vision putting things in perspective, showing us the reason for being. Scorpio Halloween bats fly at night using their ‘radar’ to ping off their surroundings. A bat eats 6,000 to 8,000 insects each night, keeping our environment in balance. Free of biters, naggings, they clear the air and the mind! Jupiter enhances Scorpio’s powers to transform. At times there is burn out, a crash and burn, and the Phoenix rises from its own ashes! Scorpio heals miraculously, and is a superb healer, both physical and mental! Jupiter enhances and amplifies all those possibilities!

If you are crawling out of the tunnel into the Light, Scorpio may have given you gifts of power within. You left fear behind. Healing happened when you were stripped of all dignity and became so humble you became permeable. Jupiter carried the coals of the caravan from camp to camp, the Light. Spiritually speaking, you may be having a burning fire Kundalini awakening, a burning away of the dross, become gifted with clear sight to see where you are going. By the time you are done with Scorpio, you are ready to become the Sagittarian Pathfinder, the Teacher. A lot can happen in one year.

Nov 8, 2018 Jupiter will be coming home to his own sign Sagittarius, starting a new 11/12 year cycle! The goodness of Scorpio is the foundation for Sagittarius.

Wishing you strength and the deepest love on your remarkable journey.

Full Virgo/Pisces Corn Moon!  Regulus & a lot of Mercury! 

New Moon!  Five Planets in Virgo!
New Moon & Jupiter Aspecting Chiron & Uranus!

The Virgo Moons are finishing the Mercury Retrograde cycle. Both Leo New Moons were linked to the Mercury Retrograde cycle, and both the Virgo New and Full Moons are as well!

This Mercury Retrograde is entirely unique! It was the holder of the Aug 21 Second Leo New Moon US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE that was at the degree the whole Mercury Retrograde cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at! It is also unique by its connections with the New and Full Moons throughout its cycle!

The day after the first LEO New Moon, July 23, the Leo/Virgo Mercury Retrograde cycle started – not the retrograde, the cycle! The retrograde started August 12 in Pacific time. Expect that projects you started from July 24 through Aug 12, will not come out exactly as planned. The exciting US Total Solar Eclipse was during the Retrograde part of the cycle! Mercury turns Direct/forward, the day before the Sep 6 Full Corn Moon. Be ready to be flexible, make it better and better through the time of the whole 3 part cycle! It finishes Sep 19, the day of the Virgo New Moon! Clearly, this Mercury Retrograde cycle is linked with the MOON!

The Rx cycle includes two signs: Leo the genetic Heart of the LightBearer; Virgo the DNA LightWeaver!

Aug 21 SECOND Leo New Moon, US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE! …at 28 Leo 53! This is the degree the entire Mercury Rx cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at!! The Eclipse is during Mercury Rx, Mercury at 8 degrees Virgo during the Eclipse!

Augx22   Happy Virgo!

Full Virgo/Pisces Corn Moon! – Regulus & a lot of Mercury!

Wednesday Sep 6, at 00.03 AM Pacific, 13 Virgo/Pisces 53!  

Virgo 2017 Full Moon Clouds Pink

Sep 5 Mercury goes Direct – forward at 28 Leo the Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse degree! When a planet turns direction, it is called being in Station – being still in the sky, with no apparent visual motion. With Mercury it is an 8 day period, 4 before, 4 after the turn. There is an in dwelling, a deepening focus, a thorough examination of the matters at hand, strengthening, an anchoring of a thought or principle. Choose your thoughts carefully, select the best of your hopes and plans. Though the Full Moon doesn’t connect with Mercury by degree, Sun and Moon are held in this stance, place of mind. If you stand still until you really see. The differences of Moon in Pisces, Sun in Virto, become more apparent, each having its own value, a necessary contributor to the greater cause. At the time of the Eclipse, Moon and Sun were in Leo. Now they are spanning Virgo to Pisces. Time to use the Leo heart energy to take the next step, make your dreams come true.

This Full Moon is Moon in Pisces, the Master Dreamer and Visionary, opposite Sun in Virgo the DNA LightWeaver, Healing Goddess! Pisces Moon is at the mast! She holds the Voyage, sometimes adrift, sometimes fearlessly surging through a gale and high seas! Virgo charts the stars, minds the crew, weaves their Souls intricately in fine patterns to get the job done most magnificently! Each compliments the other. When Moon is spread too thin, Sun in Virgo gathers in the bits so they pull together. When Virgo over thinks, worries, Pisces reminds that there are greater powers that guide us and the cause is the cause, always!

Moon has just been with Neptune, Pisces’ own planet, so she knows this to be doubly true, formidable, and psychically uncannily accurate! There are psychic memories of our past life deaths and births, misunderstandings and meanings, denials and dreams. It’s a lot to take in, but the Virgo Sun opposite, uses common sense, and reorders our thinking so we can use the information in a good way to help and heal in current time.

Moon is inconjunct Venus in Leo! There will be a call to the arts – music, film, video, theatre. There will be the grace of water sports – wind sailing, paddle boards, surfing and sailing, kayaking. Seeing the world on an ocean cruise will fulfill a need to connect beyond the ordinary. There may be a mediation group or Tai Chi, Yoga class that brings you to silence, peace, serenity, tranquility. As super new things change in your life, old addictions that held you captive will be forgotten and replaced with a vibrant competence. There are new reasons for living, possibly a sweetheart becomes apparent, steps up!

Sun in Virgo is radiant. She plants seeds, walks in the woods. She clears and cleans letting bright light shine. She creates space that allows mind clearing air flow! Flowers bloom leading us to heal more quickly. Deep breath. Sun trines, a strong favorable connection, with Pluto, the Master of the Underworld, yet the Phoenix that rises, lives again! Revelation fired by the Kundalini, the energy at the base of our spines, uplifts us to the Eagle’s keen perception. Virgo sees the illness, keeps us comfortable that Pluto may heal the cause. As humans we come with some flaws, a work in progress. Some matters that need healing are from past lives, others are when we have harmed ourselves, or been harmed by others. It’s a challenging job to weed out and sort the mess, but Pluto is undaunted by complex circumstances. Pluto, in Capricorn, drives the effort. He knows how valuable an experienced person can be, how strong they are to have faced it and made it. Virgo is there all the time with that candle, bringing Light to the Dark. She makes sure the spiritual operating theatre is good for the work and is skillful at rewiring old mindsets.

Moon and Neptune are right there too, sextiling Pluto. They are intuitive to each other, speak and see as one. They see the child, how parental and cultural background has significance. They see how broken or abandoned dreams have had consequence and speak to subtleties about how to process their release. They know how to instill a greater vision now that times have changed and the person is more mature and able.

28 LEO Mercury stands close to the Inconjunct with Chiron in Pisces and trine with Uranus in Aries, but it is just whispers and hints, faint reminders. Mercury inconjuncted Chiron and trined Uranus back on about July 22nd, and on July 24th. So much has happened since then. The context has changed… What is significant is 28 Leo was the degree of the Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse! Whatever was special to you about that Eclipse, it is time to think on and talk about! Remember, Mercury in Leo is in station, so we want to anchor your best ideas, the ones of heart and Light, ones with special potential. I hope you made some notes at Eclipse time, because it isn’t over yet if that Eclipse activated your chart! (See your astrologer!)

While stationed in Leo, Mercury is trine Uranus, the planet considered to be the highest echelon of intelligence! Mercury is quick on his winged feet spreading the news, but Uranus the genius rules the Universe, evolution, awakening, flight, and the Internet, LOL! But really, what can one do without the other?! Mercury needs information to share; Uranus needs someone to spread the Word! Mercury teaches us how to learn, speak well in a good way. Uranus opens us to realms of Being we never knew existed! Both are essential. Uranus is currently in Aries the sign of Initiation, champions, leaders! Leo is the HeartLight, creation, young people finding themselves. Love and leading go well together! Uranus will surely change our minds for the better in that 8 day station! We will keep the thoughts, add a few of our own, and let them be known far and wide. Bright.

Mercury in Leo, hopefully with grand projects on his mind, is just about to change signs into Virgo Sep 9, catch up with Mars Sep 16, and make like a sphinx with him! Half Lion, half Woman, the Sphinx embodies the Leo/Virgo signs – Leo the Lion, Virgo the Virgin. There is much to talk about and you can be assured that champion, hero Mars will quickly do his very best to help Mercury with the work! Mercury will be gaining momentum after the turn, moves right along, passing Mars, on to the next project.

Mars newly at 0 Virgo is conjunct fixed star Regulus, so you can expect his contribution to be elegant and maximum! Regulus used to be in Leo. It was one of the four Persian Royal Stars, the watcher of the South, the King! Now in Virgo, I dub him/her the Healing Goddess! Maybe Chiron is her planet. Mars wants to move things right along, see to the finer points of things, and may get the job done in record time! He is quite capable of giving the boot to the next level! Quick to analyze, he gives you a shove it he thinks you can make it! He encourages, is right to the point. He inspires you instantly! In Virgo he gets you exercising perfectly per your conditions! Oxygen gets to your brain and fuels your next choice! He gets you charged then passes you right by, on his way to the next spiritual soldier that needs a boost!

Jupiter and Saturn made their sextile but are still plenty close and active. Lots of plans made and a ton getting done! Jupiter is finishing last days in Libra. Social relationships are being made, groomed, extended into greater territories. We are committing to distant travels and tours, and superior education. Publishing our works is important, probably timely. Political ethics and justice are getting a workout from grassroots to corporate levels. See more!

Sep 23 and 27 are the next aspects coming, Jupiter inconjunct Chiron and opposite Uranus! These will be the third and final aspects of their sets of three each. As Jupiter moves in closer, the aspects will be in the traditional ranges thought to have effect. After them, Saturn will be squaring Chiron Nov 2.

Besides being about Virgo and Pisces, this Full Moon is a lot about Mercury. They are tied together because Mercury rules Virgo and the retrograde ties to the Moons! As one teacher said, ‘Where your attention goes, your energy flows.’ Straight ahead!

New Moon! Five Planets in Virgo!
New Moon & Jupiter Aspecting Chiron & Uranus!

Tuesday September 19, at 10:30 PM Pacific, 27 Virgo 27!

Virgo 2017 New Crescent Moon Cleaning Stars

Virgo angels are often at work making our lives brighter, even at New Moon time! 

As is said above, the Virgo Full and New Moons are finishing the Mercury Retrograde Cycle! Both Leo New Moons were linked to the Mercury Retrograde cycle, and both the Virgo New and Full Moons are as well! The SAME DAY of our New Moon at 27 Virgo, the Mercury Retrograde Cycle finishes at 11 Virgo! As the Moon cycle finishes and begins anew, Mercury is finishing the Retrograde loop and stepping into new territory! Each has the past as its foundation to move on from. Note your successes, and what needs a bit more work. Give yourself credit. Virgo rules work we perform, services. bookkeeping and budgeting. Health and healing, taking care of pets. Choices based on critical and practical thinking are necessary to accomplish our goals. Again, the degrees are not linked, but the timing is. More wise and experienced, together we celebrate and embark on the next part of our journey!

Mercury rules communications – speaking, listening. The four moons connected with Mercury’s Retrograde cycle have each brought a special perception. It is fitting the whole cycle matures, finishes in Virgo, Mercury’s second sign! Virgo organizes our thoughts, fits the puzzle pieces together, expedites the project to a polished and quality result!

4 Occultations! There is a unique lead in energy preparing this New Moon. Pacific time, Sep 17 Venus at 27 Leo, the star Regulus at 0 Virgo, Sep 18 Mars at 8 Virgo and Mercury at 10 Virgo are occulted! Occultations are mini eclipses! The Moon and those planets are perfectly lined up! That’s three inner planets in two days. Channels are open from and to those three planets! There is a purity. Messages are clear and potent! Venus of values and grace, star Regulus the heart of the constellation of Leo the Lion and at the crossroad of Leo/VIrgo – the Sphinx (half Lion, half Woman), Mars the leader and champion, Mercury of communications – transmit and listen! The 19th Venus enters Virgo just in time for the New Moon!

The occultations occur in less than 24-hours time. This will be the first time since March 5, 2008, that three planets have been occulted by the moon in less than one day. The next time won’t be until July 24, 2036.

With this New Moon having FIVE planets, a stellium, in Virgo, including Mercury in his own sign Virgo, we can safely say things will get done, and well! Virgo is a common sense Earth sign, a hard worker, last one to leave the office!

Moon with Sun is a potent combination. Sun carries the Light, Moon gives support and give the unconditional love we need! Virgo is worker, at all kinds of enterprises that take care of us on a daily basis. Moon thinks that is terrific. She superlatively minds our nutrition, often has natural remedies, information that saves the day.

Virgo is purity, cleanliness of mind, body and location! She nags us, but the aim is to establish and maintain clear thinking. She adjusts our diet to prevent ailments, cheaper than a doctor, LOL! She detoxes us, and builds better health than ever before! She clears clutter that blocks and burdens us, organizes our lives for clear and streamlined action. Go, Virgo!

Venus just arrived, is at 0 degrees. She loves the work and wants it to be beautiful, valuable and lovingly composed! Might be a quilt or the subtle tints of the paint on the wall in the showroom! Patterns stir our consciousness, labyrinths lead to the center of the world! We relax in the loveliest flower gardens, grow the most healthy herbs and foods. Very sweet caregiver.

Mars in Virgo gives good measure for time spent! He works best independently. Definitely an Earth mover! Outdoors might be his forte. In construction put him to work on woodworking, the cabinets installations and clean up! He will be the best delivery person you ever had! He may volunteer to take food to home bound people and elders.

Moon naturally takes on the home nurturing role; Sun leads us to extend that service to our community! Virgos are very clever Souls and much sought after. There have always been tenders and nannies, butlers, caregivers and nurses and accountants. We couldn’t live without them! Well we could, but things are more better with them! They have specific amazing skills! They are downright excellent at garden care and landscaping. Botanic gardens…. Veterinary.

Mars and Mercury are opposite Neptune. He’s been waiting for them. Mercury and Neptune are each in their own signs. They are strongly placed. Neptune the dreamer and savior, offers insights to spiritual dilemmas, meditation to sooth the monkey mind. Mercury has just crossed Mars, and is supercharged! Mercury wants to learn everything at once, chat and do logic, give the news on these new discoveries! And Mercury discovers there is more than words. Empathy is important too. Mars, though generally forthright and furious, in Virgo is a bit more careful in it’s approach. Quiet tiptoes might be the way when with the sleeping Giant Neptune that sees all, especially if he is sleeping?! Rude questions and probing may provoke a chilled silence that is an unpredictable entity all its own. Oops. Ok, breathe. Gentle respect more likely due. Perhaps the technique and skill of the process is more important than the content of the encounter?

Mars and Mercury are trine Pluto in Capricorn! They all are Earth sign harmonious. Practical. Reasoning. Limits and laws. Mercury is forging ahead of Mars, first on the premises. Capricorn, the sign of elders and professionals, needs respect, and Pluto has a lot of private business. It may take a getting-to-know-you period before there is sharing. If you are offering services, you need to be bonded. If you are looking for a story be careful what you say. Mars might push a little harder than Mercury, but too much push can be felt to be suspicious. Pluto is always watching the back door. If it is an instant go ahead connection, you’re on! Ask your questions, offer innovative ideas, propose your price. If it is a personal relationship, while away the hours together, share secrets, do a project that fills your hearts!

The New Moon and Chiron have just made a T square with the Galactic Center! Squares can be a nuisance, blocks, but they also bring breakthroughs and building! Chiron is soulfully diligent seeking cures of body and mind, but in Pisces more of Spirit. Sometimes we get a wee bit lost, could be fears, addictions, cloudy vision, depleted dreamtime or dreams too vivid. At the point of the T Square,the Galactic Center is in Sagittarius, the place of the Pathfinder, Wayshower. It is a fire sign that lights the way, points the direction to take! It is a cheerful sign of hope and optimistic there is a fine future ahead! This perspective helps us break free from old things that have haunted us.

The New Moon is also within minutes of inconjunct Uranus in Aries! The gateway is is oblique, off to the side. it isn’t mainstream, could even be brushed aside as too weird or off putting, but Moon is is concerned for her territory, so takes a look. Moon is leery of such an upstart and for good reason! Uranus is the ChangeMaker, evolutionist, ahead of its time. The Moon protects culture and the home, sudden changes can be scary, upset the Virgo family routine. Moon is also curious. In her cycles she sees many things and may be bored, and in Virgo she is always amenable to a better way. So she may choose to watch from a safe distance at first.

The Sun is the planet in natural opposition to Uranus. Sun rules Leo, opposite sign to Aquarius, Uranus’ sign. Sun in Virgo may feel somewhat similar to the Moon in this instance. Virgos are not usually robust champions. They are more delicately put together. Like feathers in the weather vane, they sense shifts in the valence, minute disruptions of natural order. But they all may have a quick consult. Uranus in Aries instantaneously inspires. As Moon and Sun go by, they will be excited by the possibilities!

27 Virgo squares the Fixed Stars Polaris and Betelgeuse. Both are at 28 Gemini, but in very different locations in the sky! Polaris is the Pole Star, at the North Pole of Earth, the stars appearing to rotate around it. Its declination is +89. It has long been a guiding star to sailors and caravans. The planet, Uranus, was discovered one degree longitude away from this star! Polaris has been given mixed interpretations of high honors, misery and spiritual power. I would think which or how much of each, would depend on how it is situated in a given chart and the aspects at a given time. In this case, both Sun and Moon in a challenge aspect it could indicate Gemini/Virgo mind/body challenges, honors lost or hard won, a block in communications since Gemini and Virgo are Mercury’s two signs! A clear direction may not be immediately apparent or without some effort.

The same square exists with Betelgeuse, but Betelgeuse, declination only +7, is entirely a different character! Rather than at the Pole, Orion is located on the celestial equator and visible throughout the world! Polaris is at the tip of the tail of the Little Bear. Betelgeuse is in Orion’s right shoulder! Rather than the Guide, Betelgeuse is part of the hunter warrior! Great fortune and fame, especially military success, are potential, and it is also associated with calamities, danger, and violence! Warriors take their chances! Our New Moon in Virgo may contribute to strategies, might be a stealthy and clever hunter, but is rarely a warrior. Virgo may take care of the wounded, but would rather deal with Gemini’s commerce, offering business skills. Virgo may be grateful for Gemini’s news of new techniques and cures at the front, but will likely quietly incorporate it in it’s life on its own. Likely to be a meet, greet and move on. The Moon was on Betelgeuse when the 1st tower was struck on 9/11.

Moon’s North Node is retrograding to trine Saturn in Sagittarius. Moon’s nodes are thought to link to past lives. The South is what we did, the North is how we want to balance that. In Leo, it is calling for Heart and Light, radiant being, a creative Spirit! Saturn is thought of as the Reaper, what we sow is what we get, or it is what we are responsible for. Sometimes we owe from past lives. In the process, we work toward Dharma, the work of the Soul. Often I find people who are living their Saturn, doing the work it symbolizes, are the happiest! Moons Nodes and Saturn symbolize a harmony of Moon, Mother, and Saturn, Father/Time. Leo to Sagittarius can be inspiring performance, teaching, sharing the best we have to give!

There are two outer planet combinations that the New Moon opens gateways to and prepares us for.

  • First is the Sep 23 and 27 Jupiter inconjunct Chiron and opposite Uranus! They are the third and final aspects of their sets of three each. The new Moon is directly tied to all three! Jupiter is scouting for learning, healing. In Libra it wants to establish a friendly relationship, an open exchange. Jupiter may cheer Chiron in Pisces out of some of his wounds and worries. Chiron intuits Jupiter’s excesses and cheerfulness that covers any fears and failures. Ok to fail. Sometimes better that happened! This work is of great interest to Virgo who seeks natural balances, cures, and working relationships.
  • Opposite Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Libra is at some moments appalled by the indignity of seemingly aimless rushing about, yet is intrigued no end and finds himself in a new cosmic culture, dancing the dash! Haven’t had so much fun in ages, who cares what you look like?! Libra’s social meter may meet max trying to keep up with all those new acquaintances, but there is so much to learn and he doesn’t want to miss a thing! Extraordinary! They can make tremendous achievements together! Uranus has the genius and research; Libra knows the law and gets the patent!
  • Second is Saturn square Chiron, exact November 2. This is not considered an easy aspect by many. If Chiron is a/the wound, and Saturn slows healing down, it just isn’t fun. It can be your love life, your body, your work or business, school, attitude. For centuries we’ve largely ignored the wisdom of those among us who are still directly connected to ancestral ways of knowledge. If you haven’t paid serious attention before and some real work needs to be done, this time you may make a breakthrough and make a fresh start in the right direction. Find a real teacher/healer, maybe an indigenous shamanic healer. You may get over the fear of making a commitment or taking on something bigger than usual. You might be called on to do it on your own as others may have troubles of their own. Give them any help you can. You may be frustrated with limits, but perhaps they are keeping you safe for the time being. Time may feel like it is standing still. It teaches poise and patience. Just stay steady, stay with it.

Those of you who tinker with the numbers probably have noticed the Virgo New Moon at 27 Virgo 27! In astrology, the 2nd and 7th signs are Taurus and Libra, both Venus ruled. May Love and Beauty prevail! 2 + 7 is 9, as this New Moon completes the Mercury Retrograde cycle over a course of five lunar events!

As one lunar cycle ends, a new one begins. There is a maturity, ending, gratefulness, letting go, moving on. Natural. Take some quiet moments, have a circle gathering, rest, assess what’s up and in the wind. The foundation you have built will stand you in good stead for what’s to come. Sign by sign we follow the stars through the Year. Virgo is sign 6, halfway through, soon to tip the scale into Libra! Most honorable.

Blessed be ~

New & Full Moon Connections Throughout! Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse is during the Retrograde!

Most significant Mercury Retrograde Leo-Virgo 2017!

Cosmic DNA, evolutionary strands, a weaving of multitude, an unseen pilot lighting the way, time travel…..spiritual intelligence incarnate. We do the same hours every day, yet no two days are alike. Unique waves of consciousness never experienced before. Recognition, Fusion, Alliance, Passage.

This Mercury Retrograde is entirely unique, the holder of the Aug 21 Second Leo New Moon US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE that is at the degree the whole Mercury Retrograde cycle starts at and Mercury goes Direct at! It is also unique by its connections with the New and Full Moons throughout its cycle!

The day after the first LEO New Moon, July 23, the Leo/Virgo Mercury Retrograde cycle starts – not the retrograde, the cycle! The retrograde starts August 12 in Pacific time. Expect that projects begun from July 24 through Aug 12, will not come out exactly as planned. The exciting US Total Solar Eclipse is during the Retrograde part of the cycle – check your reservations in advance – confirm, confirm, confirm – everything! Mercury turns Direct/forward, the day before the Sep 6 Full Corn Moon. Be ready to be flexible, make it better and better through the time of the whole 3 part cycle! It finishes Sep 19, the day of the Virgo New Moon! Clearly, this Mercury Retrograde cycle is linked with the MOON!

Leo the genetic Heart of the LightBearer; Virgo the DNA LightWeaver!

x
Mercury starts in Leo for only two days, but they are oh, so potent! 
The 3 part Mercury Retrograde cycle starts at 28 Leo and Mercury turns Direct/forward at 28 Leo. It is the root degree and sign of the Retrograde! The contemplation all starts with Leo, the sign of the Heart! Gold is its color! Heroes and athletes are favored. It is Self aware and creative from that central spark of the Light of the Sun! The Lion is with fixed star Regulus the King, why not Queens too?! Regulus was at 29 Leo, but now is early 0 degree Virgo, the Maiden, Healing Priestess! Virgo is the sign of organization and service, and the royals must now make their contribution in high style, truly serve the People! I think of Justin Trudeau whose Ascendant is 3 Virgo. Regulus is one of the four Persian Royal Stars, the Watcher of the South, Summer Solstice, Archangel Raphael, Doctor of Medicine.

Mercury moves along into Virgo, but returns to Leo for a 10 day station (standstill as it turns direction forward), Aug 31 to Sep 9. Mercury is the planet of magical synapses, within oneself and with others! Words get around and we see their many faces. We think, we speak to our core intelligence, the who we are. In Leo there is the search for authenticity, being in the heart, radiant with natural Light. It’s a creative posture, alive with brilliant potential. It calls for a purity of Being that gives the strength from being true. Mercury handshakes its way with a smile that moves the Soul! It passes it on. Irresistible! At the last two degrees of Leo it is mature and sure. Leo being a fixed sign; once it has found its way, it is the Light on the Path, steady and with a remarkable Will to succeed.

Mercury in Virgo, one of its own signs, is clever and succinct, lines up connections so those synapses can fire more frequently. It aligns DNA-like rows of synapses that exchange energy as they travel. It keeps energy points clean so there is clear, quick and accurate exchange. Properly lined up and in peak condition, they can self create and continue. They are strong, flexible. Make turns, reverses to review. They twist to vantage points to look back on how to profit from past experiences and glimpse the future.

The everyday experience might look like how it is situated at the Aug 7 Full Leo/Aquarius Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse:

Mercury is slowing to Retrograde Aug 12, so charming Venus in Cancer, moving faster, is making the sextile to Mercury in Virgo! The practical side of things gets done at home and at work too! Techniques are delightfully woven into our daily fabric. The Art gallery is in order, the finest are selected for cultural beauty, utility and fine craftsmanship. Though it is tempting to do beauty and body work, make clothing choices, it is so close to Mercury Rx, there is a good chance you won’t want the same things very soon. Be sure to get warranties, receipts for refunds. Quickly design your business card and logo. See if it withstands Mercury Rx before you print. Rather than remodel, design on paper and wait. Further options are quite likely to come along! Bookkeeping and services, health matters, getting some rest, streamlining your life, landlord/tenanting may require your attention. Wait until about 5 days after Mercury turns forward/direct to make changes, get engaged. Mercury turns forward Sept 5.

The Aug 12 Retrograde is at 11 Virgo 38, square the fixed star Antares in the constellation Scorpio! Squares mean challenges most any day, but to Antares it may not be an easy challenge. Since Mercury direction changes also mean being in Station, an 8 day period, the energy will be held a good 8 days. Since Antares is at 9 Sagittarius 46+, we’ll extend that time to 5 days before the 12th, 5 days following. Antares is another of the four Persian Royal Stars, the Watcher of the West, autumnal equinox, Archangel Uriel/Oriel, Fire of God. Rob Tillett sums up Antares saying: Spirit of adventure, obstinacy, injuries to eyes, honours, sudden loss, stubborn, suspicious, violent, several marriages. A super simplified interpretation by me would be Virgo wants to work, Sagittarius wants to play and doesn’t show up on time. That’s not a disaster, but you might lose your job and that could become a challenge! If you’re going surfing during work time, take the boss with you!

The Retrograde cycle starts with the Star of the South, Regulus, and ends in connection with the Star of the West, Antares.

Retrograde in Leo, Mercury may change his mind about his opinion about himself. And that’s likely to flip or shift again as there are further developments while Mercury is in station – appears to be standing still in the sky Sep 1 to 8 – then moves forward again and finishes Leo, for the year, Sep 9. The choices of self presentation, personal style – words, posture, looks, colors, lighting – will definitely change. Educational matters, seminar schedules, advertising text, romantic concerns, will change, adjust, maybe improve with adjustments. Consider, research, but wait. Redesign, check fit, availability, but wait. If it passes Virgo specs during the first week Mercury is back in Virgo, go for it! To be on the safe side, get changes clients make approved with signatures and dates, keep receipts, get warranties.

During the Leo station, Mercury Rx conjuncts Mars at 28 Leo 43 on Sep 3. Sep 5 Mercury turns Direct, as Mars moves forward into Virgo. Traveling closely together it takes until Sep 16 for Mercury to make its catchup second conjunction at 7 Virgo 13! In Leo, Mercury interviews the champion, announces a winner, names the leader! He announces the new creation, the exciting new curriculum! Mercury in Virgo puts the energy into action, organizing efforts to achieve the project  A garden may be started, a new health regime makes the news, study efforts back at school are swiftly dispatched. New hires, private contractors, are welcomed gratefully.

The FIVE part Lunar Sequence!

  1. The July 23 New Moon Is the day before the Mercury Rx cycle starts! It will help you see what’s at the bottom of things, the new beginning you would like to aim for. Moon conjunct Sun is a mighty union especially when the Sun is in his own sign Leo! It’s time to stand tall and have the pride of your own sweet Spirit!
  2. Before the August 7 Full Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse, Mercury is close to opposite Neptune in Pisces! Virgo is one of Mercury’s own signs, and Neptune rules the opposite sign Pisces and is in Pisces! It’s almost like a double opposition! Mercury is intrigued by things out of its usual scope, a higher order perhaps. It can be used as a universal model. Things flow, health improves, you arrive at a vantage point of synchronicity that surprises you by its infinitely more favorable links. Logic and intuition work well together. They stay close but with Mercury slowing to retrograde, they don’t become exact, but considerations are stirred. They are within three degrees 10 days, from August 7 to 17. The exact aspect isn’t made, the outcome revealed isn’t revealed, until Sep 19. See more!
  3. Second Leo New Moon, US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE is at 28 Leo 53! This is the degree the entire Mercury Rx cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at!! The Eclipse is during Mercury Rx, Mercury at 8 degrees Virgo during the Eclipse! He trines Dark Moon Lilith at 9 Capricorn. Laser logic and bold feminine success. Tending and building. Cool mind, clear focused passionate power! Use the Eclipse message as your Guide.
  4. The Sep 6 Pisces/Virgo Full Corn Moon is not linked to degrees in the Mercury Rx cycle, but is linked in time, happening the day after Mercury goes Direct, forward! Mercury is in station, appearing to stand still in the sky, at that time. Mercury holds the degree for 8 days, 4 before and 4 after the direction turn. There is a deep intake, a focus, mulling it over, a strengthening, an anchoring is possible. Take care what you hold in your thoughts in these 8 day periods. This time we look at the span of Pisces to Virgo. The Moon is conjunct Neptune in Pisces, his own sign! There are psychic memories of our past life deaths and births, misunderstandings and meanings, denials and dreams. It’s a lot to take in, but the Virgo Sun opposite, uses common sense, and reorders our thinking so we can use the information in a good way to help and heal in current time. Mars newly at 0 Virgo, conjunct fixed star Regulus (see more), wants to move things right along, see to the finer points of things, and may get the job done in record time!
  5. The Sep 19 Virgo New Moon is at 27 Virgo, while Mercury is finishing his cycle at 11 Virgo on the same day! As the Moon cycle finishes and begins anew, Mercury is finishing the Retrograde loop and stepping into new territory! Each has the past as its foundation to move on from. Note your successes, and what needs a bit more work. Give yourself credit. Virgo rules work we perform, services. bookkeeping and budgeting. Health and healing, taking care of pets. Choices based on critical and practical thinking are necessary to accomplish our goals. Again, the degrees are not linked, but the timing is. More wise and experienced, together we celebrate and embark on the next part of our journey!

Here’s the Mercury and Lunar Timing!

July 23 First Leo New Moon at 0 Leo 44
xxxx24 Mercury at 28 degrees Leo Retrograde Cycle starts
xxxx25 Mercury into Virgo, one of its own signs

Aug    7 Full Green Corn Moon at 15 Aquarius/Leo 25
xxxx12 Mercury Retrograde at 11 degrees Virgo
xxxx21 Second Leo New Moon, US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE at 28 Leo 53! This is the degree the entire Mercury Rx cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at!! The Eclipse is during Mercury Rx, Mercury at 8 degrees Virgo during the Eclipse!
xxxx31 Mercury back in Leo only 10 days until Sep 9

Sep    5 Mercury Direct – forward at 28 Leo the Eclipse degree! Mars at 0 Virgo conjunct fixed star Regulus!
xxxxx6 Full Corn Moon 13 Pisces/Virgo 53
xxxxx9 Mercury returns to Virgo, one of its own signs
xxxx19 Virgo New Moon at 27 Virgo 27 + Last day of Mercury Retrograde Cycle, Mercury at 11 Virgo 28!

When Mercury is in Leo, those of you with chart factors in 26 to 29 degrees of fixed signs, Leo/Aquarius, Taurus/Scorpio, will feel the challenge. Those with factors in those same degrees of Fire signs Aries and Sagittarius, will more likely be excited by the changes!

The majority of the Retrograde is 0 to 11 degrees Virgo. Those of you with chart factors in mutable signs, Virgo/Pisces, Gemini/Sagittarius, will be challenged when Mercury is in Virgo. The Earth signs, Taurus and Capricorn will likely find it a smoother ride.

Wishing you all the very best. By my thinking, this Mercury Retrograde is significant! Make it so.

Happy Birthdays, Leos!

Leo Chris Hemsworth Australian Actor Thor Hero

Aug 11 Leo Chris Hemsworth, Australian Actor, is best known for portraying the ‘Marvel Comics’ superhero, Thor, in the American flick ‘Thor’, a blockbuster that gave him international fame. No surprise since he has the Jupiter conjunct Uranus super fame aspect in Sagittarius. He’s not just famous in his own country, but worldwide! Chris’s Venus, Mercury and Moon in Virgo give him a bank of skills that are remarkably talented, plus tremendous charm! He has a way with words and demands excellence.

The 2012 American superhero film ‘The Avengers’ not only came out as the highest-grosser of the year but also peaked as the third highest-grosser worldwide.

2013 he voiceovered as George Kirk in ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’, sequel to 2009’s ‘Star Trek’; and portraying real-life character of James Hunt, the 1976 Formula 1 World Champion, in sports drama film ‘Rush’.

In 2015, he played a convicted computer hacker, Nicholas Hathaway, in action thriller mystery film ‘Blackhat’; tickled the funny bones as Stone Crandall in the comedy flick ‘Vacation’; and played Owen Chase in adventure drama ‘In the Heart of the Sea’ apart from playing Thor in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’.

We don’t have a birthtime for him, but it would surely show how he has such versatility!

7.15.17 For you followers, CinemaBlend says: The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been on fire lately. Their two most recent releases, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming, have been met with universal critical acclaim and made some serious cash at the box office. The next installment in the shared universe is highly anticipated, as Thor: Ragnarokwill bring Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk into the Thor franchise for an intergalactic buddy movie. The two heroes are the most powerful members of The Avengers, and now Ruffalo has teased that one of the most hotly debated aspects of Marvel lore will finally be answered: who would win a in a fight, Thor or The Hulk?

A lot of training goes into being this particular super hero! Food, exercise, and, of course, how that engages his kids! Interview

Being a Leo, the sign of children, he has three of his own, including twins! His Moon in Virgo calls him to take good care of them. He is closely associated with ‘The Australian Childhood Foundation’ and supports children facing neglect and abuse. He is a dedicated supporter and spends both time and money in protecting children. He’s a true champion and hero.

Be the Hero of your own life!

Leo 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Perseids Meteor Shower Radiant

Thank you to Bruce McClure and EarthSky.org!

August 12 – 13 – Perseids Meteor Shower. In the Northern Hemisphere, the annual August Perseid meteor shower probably ranks as the all-time favorite meteor shower of the year. Up to 60 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by comet Swift-Tuttle, which was discovered in 1862. The Perseids are famous for producing a large number of bright meteors. The shower runs annually from July 17 to August 24. It peaks this year on the night of August 12 and the morning of August 13. The waning gibbous moon will block out many of the fainter meteors this year, but the Perseids are so bright and numerous that it should still be a good show. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Perseus, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

Don’t rule out early evenings, either. As a general rule, the Perseid meteors tend to be few and far between at nightfall and early evening. Yet, if fortune smiles upon you, you could catch an earthgrazer – a looooong, slow, colorful meteor traveling horizontally across the evening sky. Earthgrazer meteors are rare but memorable. Perseid earthgrazers can only appear at early to mid-evening, when the radiant point of the shower is close to the horizon.

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

Leo 2017 TimeLine!

Leo has the honor of hosting the amazing Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse! The upcoming 5 part Lunar sequence associated with the Mercury Retrograde cycle is profound! There are two new Moons in LEO, the second is the ECLIPSE!

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

The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, started the 2017 retrograde set of the SIX aspects in reverse order through May 18. The last aspect, Jupiter inconjunct Neptune has been and is in a one degree station May 17, retrograde, to July 4, direct/forward! The final set of six starts with this July 4 aspect. Next is the Aug 4 Jupiter square Pluto. It is the next last aspect of the now forward set of six that started Oct 2016. The two late September aspects, Jupiter inconjunct Chiron and opposite Uranus will finish the set 11/11!

Jupiter is in its final 2+ months of Libra, enters Scorpio Oct 10! Time to find good footing and balance to weather your relationships, make alliances that will hold through times to come, go places that will make a difference. Learn how to equalize the elements at hand, exchange wisely.

Saturn will be in Sagittarius until Dec 19, 2017, then in its own sign Capricorn!

July  22  Happy LEO

Outer Planet Transit Aspects Leo 2017 – Aug 2018!

Leo Woman Traveler Luggage Heels

Traveling in style into the next year, Leos bring something for every occasion!

Four outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter, are changing signs in Leo’s year to come. Expect several maturities, endings, new beginnings and exciting new intentions!

Pluto in Capricorn reaches the beginning of the last third of Capricorn May 2018 moving from 16 to 21 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! Pluto is inconjunct Leo. Leo enjoys being watched, but usually not negative reviews, and if anyone can find the secrets, Pluto in Capricorn has the inclination and means. If necessary fess up, no blackmail! If it is your manager, they have practical advice for your progress, but you may need to be your Self to your fullest to get where your Spirit leads you. It may be challenging to find the right balance. Pluto can bring financial indiscretion or obsessions with illegal relationships, but also may call for you to avoid some self indulgence, detox, save your own life!

Neptune is in its own sign, moves from 11 to 16 Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. Though inconjunct, Neptune/Pisces and Leo work well for night time productions and bright lights, music that permeates your Being! Leo is sensitized to quiet stillness when in meditation. There is a letting go of personas that no longer speak true to the heart. It can be confusing at first, then a relief. A call to serve may prevail guided by a transcendent intuition, dreams, a Light that glows. Go to sea! Swim like a dolphin!

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 2 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the last year of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. 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 a automatic. In Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries is the first to DO it! Fire and electricity make the world go around! Leo is a fixed sign, strong in itSelf. Uranus has no time for people who are stuck or stubborn. It will seek more fertile soil. That is especially true in Aries, the spontaneous responder, the fastest to see. If you find yourself getting left behind, shake yourself, open your eyes wide and make a run to catch up, fly if you have to – but you will have to update your ways! Disconcerting at first, delightful later! In spite of these two being in trine, a most favorable aspect, this may be the one who gets away. Once they transfer the data, they are off again. You are left to distribute it further. Maybe better as friends – electric and eclectic, part of a like minded community network. No worry. It was fun while it lasted. Console yourself with a new computer!

Uranus in Taurus gives Leo a good challenge. It’s mixed. Both love beauty but in different styles. Taurus likes earth tone comfort, a barefoot walk; Leo likes the latest dramatic fashion, bright enthusiastic colors! Taurus can make a ton of money and hang onto it, but Leo likes to spend it. Leo may find Uranus too fast and Taurus too slow! Uranus wants change, gets bored. Leo is always giving, a show, fundraiser, being a teacher. If Leo celebrates Uranian ideas, more sensible in Taurus, there can be an integration that works. They may not be friends, but there can be an appraisal that changes organic values. Leo may find they can take time out where nothing is expected of them.

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, covers 24 Pisces to 2 Aries, entering Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will conjunct any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business.

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Leo may need special attention to their hearts – love life, spine and hair. If they are feeling droopy, the healing may be to do what makes them happy not money, to get some exercise, be with people who celebrate them and have gratitude! Chiron in Pisces is askew, inconjunct Leo, inviting them to take a look off to the side, adjust their direction, possibly take some time to rest and refocus. Time to have some sweeter music, gentle the Lion. Less work, get more done. Relationships need healing clarity, gentle consideration, mutual support.

When Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will speed up healing at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance! Aries and Leo are both high spirited, sometimes competitive. Aries is a sprinter and pusher! Leo, a fixed sign, is more an endurance runner and doesn’t like being pushed off course or before they are ready, which may never happen; they are often late! Leos are not always the athlete, sometimes they are the Lion lazing on the savanna. Aries wants to heal them quickly, refresh them with new ideas that get them up! Aries wants them to have relationships that inspire them and businesses or life work that they can’t wait to get up to do!

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through August 2018. Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020.

In Sagittarius Saturn trines Leo. Leo finds themselves getting neglected things done! Planning ahead helps. Working more in advance, and doing a bit more frequently rather than all at once makes for less stress! There may be some awards, recognition for your good work.Presentations are masterful, right to the point, and brightly illustrated.

Saturn Returns, every 28 to 29 years, can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! If you are on your first Return, you may be having substantial career success, marry, have your first child, buy a home! If you are on your second Return, about age 58, you may be thinking of retirement plans, be called to take care of aging parents. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from experienced experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive.

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

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when you get work that suits you better or you start your own business! Capricorn and Leo make a surprisingly good combination. Each likes having a good reputation and a partner they admire. Leos are up there and Capricorns often work hard and long, excel in their fields. Saturn is realistic, has a history of success, and Leo’s feelings aren’t hurt when suggestions are made. Leo wishes they weren’t lazy at times, and is glad for Capricorn’s boot! Kinda fatherly. Saturn understands age, and won’t abandon you as you age together. You just keep on working together.

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

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

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Jupiter in Libra can be well traveled and curious wherever it goes, giving suggestions and making comparisons right and left. Leo says I’ll go, take me with you! Jupiter tells loves stories, about magical alchemy, far away places. Leo loves acting out these tales, giving full voice and heart that makes you feel them as if you were there. Jupiter is blunt at times and in Libra suggests ways that your presentation or demeanor would do better, to consider how other people react. It has ideas how your teaching can be more balanced, opinions to be considered rather than said to be the only and right way. Some of your work may need publishing and it’s time now! Make the connections needed to get that done! At first you may make some mistakes, but you will learn and get better at it.

Jupiter in Scorpio may clash with Leo. Leo senses a judgement, possibly feels they could be undermined, gossiped about so cruelly they might lose their jobs. Ironically, there may be truth to it, things to learn in many ways. A clean Jupiter in Scorpio wants to heal the deeper wounds, all the harder to do because Leo is a fixed sign and resists. Leos are interested and want to learn in spite of themselves, but are shy too in spite of their showy appearance. Scorpio is a fixed sign too and Jupiter is optimistic, so they don’t give up. Examples and options ease the way. Jupiter in Scorpio can make tons of money! Leo doesn’t mind that at all. Jupiter can be the backstage man; Leo out front and loving it! If they trust each other they can be mates for a lifetime.

If your Jupiter is in these Libra or Scorpio degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it wildly abundant! 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.

Leo Sunbeams & Lightbearers!

Leo Woman Sunbeams LightBearers

Sunrise and Sunset are often a time of day you love! At a shore, the mountain top, where energy has volume suits your Spirit well, you are the Sign of the Sun! Sunrise energy is absorbed, and given out during the day. In the evening there is thanks and a sunset recharge before sleep. Dreams may be vivid.

That energy may be an affectionate hug, a smile, words of encouragement. When you walk into a room things just seem to get bigger! It’s no surprise Leos are terrific athletes. They glory in their bodies, and as the Sun’s fire sign, have energy to burn! The Prowess of the Lion gives them strength and the flow of the run! It is a Pride of Lions, of course!

Leo hair is their trademark! It connects the link between spine, heart, mind and cosmos. It is their feelers that sense what’s going on, people’s reactions to them. It attracts people to share and discuss. It brings lovers and relationships. Their hair tells a story about them. Ask them about their hair evolutions.

The Sunbeams may come from center stage! Leos spend a lifetime finding themselves, seeking a purity of personification. They may need to shrug off family and cultural expectations, sexist ideas. They may try out several religions, play many roles to see how that sits with them. They may perform through art and music, tonal qualities of colors, lighting. Being teachers in classrooms with students from many backgrounds is another way of seeing the Self in themselves and others. They can start out arrogant, even bullying, and become wise and accepting of the many precious Paths to the mountain top.

Teen times are especially Leo! Relationships and romance are super important and they often mimic their favorite characters as they explore. Dating holds many questions. Should it be the flashy one, the leader, the most intelligent, the one who has the money, the most athletic, the teacher??!! Hormones may be rampant! Summer jobs can be life changing. Summer camp has its ups and downs. If they have been lazing about, away from their friends, they may be the first to want to go back to school!

Whatever work they do, you can bet they play a leadership role – either up front, or the one that is listened to behind the scenes. They can be keen observers while telling their enthralling stories! They want to be at the top, no amateurs them! There is a part of them that can be fixed in their ideas. If that matches your goals, they can be determined to get you there! Leos can excel at many things, but it is what is in their heart that matters. You can make tons of money and have fame beyond measure, but does it make you happy?

Leos do well running businesses; they are in charge and steady. They like having money to spend, lots of money, so they are willing to work for it! Being a scientist has too many rules and Leos didn’t make them, so why bother?! Bah. Being a psychiatrist is behind the scenes, no natural position for most Leos. They like the showmanship of being lawyers and clergymen, on their feet, in charge, and excel as labor leaders, schoolteachers and doctors! Heroes! They are in a greater arena as political scientists, community leaders and government officials.

It may be night, it may be cloudy and raining, but that golden Sun IS shining! Leo is the sign that is ‘steady in the Light!’ Lightbearers are always on the job. They know there are dark times, dark corners where the frighteners have been. They will be the Light when it’s dark. They will illuminate the dark corners that scare you and they will show you who you can be. They Light the Path before you so you can make your way. They will give you a talisman to carry with you when you are on your own, for when you become a Lightbearer!

Blessed be to all you Radiant Hearts!

Eclipse Dog Glasses

Here are the three Moons of Leo 2017, July 23, Aug 7, Aug 21! The second day of Leo brings the first of TWO New Moons! The second Moon is the Full Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse.

The second New Moon in Leo, on the next to last day of Leo, is being referred to by some as the Great American Eclipse because it is the first Total Solar Eclipse visible in the US since 1979, 38 years! It also qualifies as a Black Moon, the third New Moon in a season which has four New Moons.

The day after the New Moon, July 24, the Leo/Virgo Mercury Retrograde cycle starts – not the retrograde, the cycle! The retrograde starts August 12 in Pacific time. Expect that projects begun from July 24 through Aug 12, will not come out exactly as planned. The exciting US Total Solar Eclipse is during the Retrograde part of the cycle – check your reservations in advance – confirm, confirm, confirm – everything! Mercury turns Direct/forward, the day before the Sep 6 Full Corn Moon. Be ready to be flexible, make it better and better through the time of the whole 3 part cycle. It finishes, Sep 19, the day of the Virgo New Moon! Clearly, this Mercury Retrograde cycle is linked with the MOON!


First Leo New Moon!
1st Grand Fire Trine, Zero Degree, 4 Planets in Leo!

Sunday July 23, at 2:46 AM Pacific, 0 Leo 44!

Leo 2017 1st New Moon Astrology Chart

The fiery first New Moon has a four planet stellium in Leo, Sun and Moon with Mars, and about to change signs, Mercury, plus the North Node is there too!

Sun and Moon blaze with Mars, winning Leos first place! At zero and one degrees they are in first place as well as with the planet of the first sign, Aries! There is an untarnished gleeful energy. Could be said to be naive and untrained, but the way they see it, there is nothing to stop them either! Without thinking, they waste no time double guessing themselves and succeed at things the more experienced wouldn’t do! With clean intuition, they are fresh and blessed!

The blue triangle, a Grand Trine in fire, is considered lucky! Mercury and Moon’s North Node have consulted with sober Saturn, and are already seeing the wild potentials of Uranus in Aries! Inventions and solutions both!

Mercury is just a tad over a degree inconjunct Chiron in Pisces. Attention swings to the undercurrent, healing needed, subtle teachings soon to seep to a conscious knowing. Old hurts are reframed in a personal creative expression that changes them from dark to light, generously giving life again where it was feared to have been lost. There is a standing up, straightening the spine, a true-to-the-heart radiance.

Venus is at 20 Gemini, has left aspects with Jupiter and Pluto behind. She is now opposite Father Time, Saturn, afraid she might not be able to speak her mind, be doubted if she did. She may hesitate, yet feels there is a duty to be true. This jewel has too much beauty to neglect. Saturn offers his hand to help her get to her feet and cross the Threshold. He surprisingly encourages her, she gets to the crux of her messages at a perfect time!

August 4 brings the major background aspect, Jupiter square Pluto. It has been within 5 degrees of its square since June 23. This first Leo New Moon prepares the way, gives personal insights on how you can best see the square through. The square precedes the Leo/Aquarius August 7 Full Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse. The square is a rift maker and mender. What no longer serves falls apart, opening the gateway for healing and moving through to higher ground. Sometimes it’s piddly annoyances, other times you pray for your love, money and life! It takes away and doesn’t always give back. You may find yourself clearing the decks, lightening the load. Such a relief that’s over. You have room for new ways now.

Things won’t be entirely done by Aug 7. The Eclipse will deepen our understanding. No more dead wood to carry. The challenges you faced, if it aspects your personal chart, show you that you can work that hard for recovery or building strong good things that will last. The new foundation is better placed. The aspects in the New and Full Moon charts are excellent. You can do it!

2017 Total Solar Eclipse Tour Jacksonhole Buffalo

Many exciting summer plans are being made to include the Total Solar Eclipse Aug 21! This tour is currently fully booked, but there is a waitlist, and who knows, maybe they will add another group!


Full Leo/Aquarius Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse!
2nd Grand Fire Trine, Sun/Moon-Jupiter-Saturn Bow Pattern!

Monday August 7, at 11:11 AM Pacific, 15 Aquarius 25!

Leo 2017 Full Buck Moon Lunar Eclipse Astrology Chart

The August 7 Full Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse spans from the Sun in its own sign Leo, glory be, to the Moon in wild and far reaching Aquarius! This calls for a gathering of lazy beachlings to a floating-on-the-winds hot air balloon ride!

The fire signs again prevail in a Grand Trine, this time loosely connected, with Moon between Saturn and Uranus, and Jupiter between Sun and Saturn! Uranus is in Aries, a mighty spark! Mars, Sun and the Moon’s North Node are in Leo, giving from the Heart of Light! Saturn is in Sagittarius, guiding the learning with well timed encouragement.

Sun/Moon-Jupiter-Saturn Bow Pattern!

Bows are formed when two planets are equidistant sextiles to a planetary axis. Moon and Sun are our axis. Sun sextiles Jupiter and Moon sextiles Saturn! Said another way, Sun trines Saturn, Moon trines Jupiter! See the three connected green lines in the chart connecting to the red line across the chart from Moon to Sun? That’s the Bow! The green lines create advantageous links between the planets across the red line, in this case, the Full Moon axis. Jupiter is lucky, Saturn gets the job done!

Moon trine Jupiter offers a significant public venue! Moon in Aquarius reads the mood of the people, unifies the community, spreads the word throughout the Internet, across the world! Friend to friend a collective is formed, changes made. Jupiter in Libra has super fortunate liaisons, generously funds collaborative efforts to educate to the furthest reaches, travel intelligently!

Sun crossed Mars July 26, still motivated by spirited Mars coming to a lucky sextile touch with Jupiter Aug 10! In this case it’s a dance, special sweet relationships! Put on your best shoes and win the race! New relationships will stir your blood.

Sun and Moon are abundant in their sextile and trine with Jupiter! Sun in his own sign Leo and Jupiter are both natural teachers! Leo is known for a dramatic and excellent performance, full of life and color! Jupiter is a grand storyteller, and in Libra embellishes his tales with insights and facts about people from far away places. Together, Sun in Leo and Jupiter in Libra play off each other with spellbinding and artfully inspiring entertainment!

Moon in Aquarius is also delighted with all the amazing people Jupiter in Libra connects them with! Could be the party of a lifetime, an extraordinary singer, an inventor with an uncanny idea! Some differences will not be bridged by having a mutual friend, so don’t expect everyone to become bosom buds. To everyone’s surprise, some unlikely people may become lifelong couples or business partners!

Sun and Moon are also in excellent aspects with Saturn in Sagittarius. The Sun trines; the Moon sextiles Saturn in just hours! It’s wonderfully productive on large scale projects, well monitored over a longer period of time, and includes intriguing foreign principles as well as imports! Exporting goes well too. Teaching goes well. There are fine presentations, that combine just the right balance of local necessity and international ventures.

Mercury is slowing to Retrograde Aug 12, so charming Venus in Cancer, moving faster, is making the sextile to Mercury in Virgo! The practical side of things gets done at home and at work too! Techniques are delightfully woven into our daily fabric. The Art gallery is in order, the finest are selected for cultural beauty, utility and fine craftsmanship. Though it is tempting to do beauty and body work, make clothing choices, it is so close to Mercury Rx, there is a good chance you won’t want the same things very soon. Be sure to get warranties, receipts for refunds. Quickly design your business card and logo. See if it withstands Mercury Rx before you print. Rather than remodel, design on paper and wait. Further options are quite likely to come along! Wait until about 5 days after Mercury turns forward/direct to get engaged. He turns forward Sept 5.

The August 4 Jupiter square Pluto has barely passed. If it activated your chart, it may have seemed a disaster, you may have narrowly avoided it, got sideswiped, or navigated it with panache! This Eclipse will deepen your perspective and encourage you to see new possibilities now that the old debris has been cleared. Give yourself a good shake, throw your shoulders back, lift your chin and go for it!

Eclipse Total Solar 8 11 1999 Fred Espenak

Composite image of a 1999 total solar eclipse by Fred Espenak. Read his article on the August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse, first one visible from contiguous North America since 1979.

Please do think of the amazing energy that is in a direct line with us at the Total Solar Eclipse! From Father Sun, then Moon filtering, transmitting, then Us on Earth! From the Heart of Light to and through Mama Moon, she buffering, and in return, transmitting our current conditions and information to Father Sun. Conduit, Lightline, Channel, Passage, spiritual Superhighway!



Second Leo New Moon, US SOLAR TOTAL ECLIPSE!  
3rd Grand Fire Trine! Jupiter Sextile Saturn Aug 27

Monday August 21, at 11:30 AM Pacific, 28 Leo 53!

Leo 2017 Aug 21 Total Solar Eclipse Shawnee NF IL Greatest Duration Astrology Chart

What perfect charts are opening the way to our Total Solar Eclipse! Clearing the past, lots of winning high energy, gloriously being yourself, a strong focus on romance and relationships, teaching and giving, creative radiance and a willing heart of Love!

Customarily I calculate the New/Full Moon charts for my location, Santa Barbara CA, but this one is calculated for the location of the Greatest Duration, GD, of the Eclipse, Shawnee National Forest, just south of Carbondale IL, at the time of GD there, 1:20 PM CDT! The actual New Moon is 1:30 PM CDT. Please see all about the Eclipse here!

Mars, Initiation and Activation, is still in the picture, being the first one of the three Leo planets in the Eclipse chart. It just sextiled Lucky Jupiter  the day before – the race was won, and is powerfully finding its mark with its trine to the Master, Saturn Aug 22! Things are getting done with perfect timing, and they will last. Saturn has felt Mars coming and is ready now to turn with the tides.

Mercury is retrograde in one of his own signs, Virgo. Retrograde is a time of deeper delving. She’s taking notes, telling the story of our realizations. As she writes, she transposes here and there, things get out of order and the revelation is made, an accidental new order assuredly happens! There are times she forgets what happened exactly and the mind of the mind is invited to insert a different resolution, fill in the blanks from a more current context. Eclipses are all about Revelation!

Having come close to opposite Neptune in Pisces, logical Mercury in Virgo has had hints of the divine order that transcends that of worldly goods. But using that higher order as a model, connections made here have more meaning now. We can literally be transported by our good health, the ease of flow created easily carries us to the next level before we even realize we are there!

The Moon’s 24 degree North Node ties the early twenty degree planets, Mars and Saturn, with the later twenty degree planets, Uranus, Moon and Sun to make a THIRD Grand Fire Trine! Sun trined Uranus Aug 20, 11:23 PM Pacific, Moon trined 10:38 AM Pacific Eclipse morning. Leo, the sign of the SUN, is the LIGHT! Uranus is the charger, the planet of Moon and Sun’s opposite sign, Aquarius, the sign of electricity, LIGHTNING! We can SEE! We awake from our slumbers, are enlightened in some fabulous way! It can be thunderous or some gentle insight that changes our ways. It frees us from our Past, the flower blooms.

At late 28 degrees Leo, Moon and Sun are at the very last of Leo. The Lion is with fixed star Regulus the King, why not Queens too?! Regulus was at 29 Leo, but now is early 0 degree Virgo, the Maiden, Healing Goddesses! Virgo is the sign of service, and the royals must now make their contribution in high style, truly serve the People! I think of Justin Trudeau whose Ascendant is 3 Virgo.

At 28 degrees Moon and Sun are finishing up Leo in this super trine with Uranus. There is a supernatural harmony. Egos are nurtured and befriended. There is a celebration of the genius of difference and profound awakening. Divine minds. It’s a time of wholeness. One Heart, many Souls.

This 28 degree Leo is also important to the Mercury Retrograde cycle we are in at this time. The 3 part Mercury Retrograde cycle starts at 28 Leo and Mercury turns Direct/forward at 28 Leo. It is the root degree and sign of the Retrograde! The contemplation all starts with Leo, the sign of the Heart! Gold is its color! Heroes and athletes are favored. It is Self aware and creative from that central spark of the Light of the Sun!

Jupiter is leaving the Aug 4 square with Pluto behind. There will be remnants for awhile, ghosties that will need your attention so you don’t fall back. Any difficult times that have jumped on you will make you all the more determined to turn the tables, plug any leaks, clean up any last messes and move on to more amenable circumstances.

The once only Aug 27 Jupiter sextile Saturn is an outer planet combination offers opportunities of prosperity, enjoyable work, a solid future! Saturn is retrograde, going back to meet Jupiter. Each is willing. Jupiter in Libra has ideas of expansion, increasing the territory, franchises, more education, travel, publishing, including people from diverse cultures. Saturn in Sagittarius is the expert who builds the structures and systems, does real estate, the scientist, laws, the commander, CEO, master of timing and resources, considers age, the importance of Fathering, mentoring. He wants to see good things get done in a timely fashion, works hard for the goals. If it aspects your chart in a good way, pay particular attention Aug 24-26. See your astrologer!

This Eclipse will activate those things specifically in the US! Moon and Sun are teamed up in Sun’s own sign, the sign of Light, powering up the generators!

The Lights are ON!

MORE! Astrologically we only allow 1 to a very few degrees of distance to expect effect. But this map of the sky clearly shows how close the Eclipse is to REGULUS!

New Faery SuperMoon!  4 Planets in Cancer; Mars, Jupiter & Neptune Set! 

Full Buck – Hay Moon!  4 Planet Full Moon Axis: Moon/Pluto & Sun/Mars!

New Faery SuperMoon!  – 4 Planets Cancer; Mars, Jupiter, Neptune Set! 

Friday June 23, at 7:31 PM Pacific, 2 Cancer 47! 

Crescent Moon Fairy Day June 24, Star!

June 23 to 25, NEW MOON, Midsummer & Fairy Day Weekend! Friday June 23 our Cancer New Moon is the day before Fairy Day June 24, Fairy Day Weekend! Just after Summer Solstice, many celebrate MidSummer, also known as Lithia, from dusk June 23 to and on June 24! In some countries June 24 is a public holiday. Since 1974, Santa Barbara CA has hosted an annual Summer Solstice celebration, typically on the weekend of or the weekend after the actual solstice. It includes a festival and parade. There will be beach bonfires and revelry!

This is the third New SuperMoon in a row, the last New SuperMoon of 2017! December’s Full Moon will be the last SuperMoon of 2017. This time, being in Cancer, the sign of emotions, the tides of our feelings may be heightened, our caring quotient raised. Children, especially some Cancer children, may need extra care, stick to the routine and feed the favorites! Adults may appreciate a tad more TLC as well!

Mama Moon is in her own sign, giving maximum support to Father Sun. She makes him feel the tides, cycles. He in her sign, she has the greatest opportunity to wash him clean, sweep through his Light, clear the cobwebs in the corners. Her divine feminine presence calls him to extend his radiance to all women and children, the feminine in all beings. They feel the traditions of all Time, in all places. There is a special consideration of cultures of the world, the knitting of communities, heart to heart.

New Moon, new beginnings, surrender to the wellspring within. There is unity in the merger of Moon and Sun. The bond is core deep in Cancer. She more than thinks it, she feels it completely. Inspiration is the conduit from things of our culture and time, the matriarchal lineage that precedes us, to our current knowing. Like a Kundalini of feeling, or a starburst of enlightening, a door opens for a few magical moments! Once seen/felt, there is a call to step forward. Cancer is a strong sign. Homes are made, children are born and raised by Her. When she takes on a mission, go with Her!

There are FOUR planets in Cancer, the Moon in her own sign, the New Moon conjunct Mercury, Mars not much further on, leading the way! Mother Moon is as intuitive as Mercury is logical. Moon will ‘feel’ Mercury’s words, see what’s helpful about them, and add her nurturing quality to them. Instead of it’s cold outside today, she says oh, grab your jacket, you might need it! Moon puts all the words together and kneads them into the Lunar cycle, incorporates them fully, lets them rise together. It’s an intuitively intelligent blend. Mercury has the ideas; Moon puts them into business! Commodities, you know. Super aware of public reaction, especially of women.

Sun, Moon and Mercury only aspect each other. This combination acts on its own, not closely connected with any other aspects, though all three of them will soon connect with Mars! Moon does with Mars midday Pacific time the next day! She feels how eager he is to press ahead. There is literally fire in the belly and since they both are in Cancer Moon truly understands that he must! She’s willing to help. Mercury conjuncts Mars midday the 28th. He and Mars are quick on their feet. Cancer is what we call a Cardinal sign. They get things started, initiate action, are the first to do it. Tradition may take a front seat, or be the backdrop that makes it all possible!

Please be cautious of hasty hurtful angry words. There could be more crabbiness than usual and it could mount up. It may clear the deck or end a friendship instantly. Talk sooner. Take time out. Leave before it gets bad. Don’t do those late at night tired talks. Agree to sleep on it knowing much will be resolved by your inner self in the dream time. Come at it fresh in the morning. It will be much quicker then, in fact you both may realize it was not such a big thing after all. If it is something, the resolution may be super simple.

Sun is another story! Mars is moving fast, Sun doesn’t catch up until after both have changed signs, July 26 at 4 LEO! Sun will be in his own sign; fiery Mars in the fiery sign of kings! Having both been together in Cancer, they saw what needs doing in behalf of families, housing, hame community. It is their hearts to use colorful creative solutions, make a place, maybe a school, for others to lend their brilliance and inspiration as well!

For his part, Mars squares Jupiter late the next day and trines Neptune through late the 25th Pacific times. Mars is so quick to see, especially in intuitive Cancer. Jupiter in Libra is busy seeing both sides, trying to negotiate. He gets lots of admiration for his broad vision, being a world traveler, working with the arts. Mars says, get to the point, make up your mind, take care of your loved ones at home and do it NOW! Children are hurting while you are exercising your arrogance and intelligence. Ok, says Jupiter, we need to get some laws on the books and find supportive alliances. Mars pricks Jupiter’s conscience about priorities. Jupiter can do a great job, just need a little motivation. He can take those kids on trips and get scholarships for them to the art school too!

At home there could be exaggerated discord, fires of sorts. No fighting in the kitchen. In town, stay out of dark allies, and don’t break the law. In the world there could be attacks, or maybe a felt need to defend one’s homeland and preserve our principles. Religion may factor in, and most assuredly, politics. Keep your first aid kit and insurance up to date.

Mars trine Neptune will help you dance through this. When the bullet comes, don’t be there. Do your Tai Chi. Mars in Cancer is adept at turning sideways and making a much smaller target, able to slither through the smallest spaces and magically dis/appear somewhere else! Neptune in his own sign Pisces has similar virtues. Both have spiritual intention. Mars is the initiation leader, moving us forward from old ways, literally changing our identity as we arrive in the new destination! Neptune is the shapeshifter of consciousness, freeing us from confusion and illusion. Mars in Cancer is active and stirs the waves of oceanic Pisces. He steps into the Pisces dreamtime without ceremony, and the Pisces magician is glad to be awakened! Dreams come true!

Jupiter connects the loop by inconjuncting Neptune! The New Moon is connected through the links Moon, Mercury and Sun will make with Mars, that in turn aspects both Jupiter and Neptune! Jupiter Inconjunct Neptune is the underlying important long term outer planet aspect that this New Moon is all about. They first conjuncted Oct 23, 2016. Currently they have been in station, holding the connection from their 2nd to 3rd aspect, within 1 degree since before May 17th! They are closing to make their final inconjunct July 4, just before the July 8 Full Buck/Hay Moon! This New Moon is the one offering core support, unconditional nurturing, key intuition for clear seeing through these final days.

As Mars stirs Neptune in harmony from the sign Cancer of Lunar cycles, Jupiter is seeking oblique openings into the far reaches of the greatest understanding of all. It’s not just profound words, righteous ethics, holy principles, but more, matters of the Soul. The unique lifetimes of Being. How that all fits in planetary progress as a growing conscious Entity in the Universe. Due to massive political changes at this time, huge adjustments are being made, solutions sought. It is becoming clear what is most important and what part each of us needs to do personally.

Jupiter is ever optimistic, and with Libra partnerships and alliances world wide, much can be done. It’s not just for fun and games, lightweight pretty social events all the time anymore. Our connections are more meaningful than ever, and can be powerful. Neptune could have been meditating, but now, perhaps, it needs more to be a wakeful observant walking meditation of action. The Savior needs to do some saving! The old non-violent martial forms were always about self preservation, inner strength. The Silent Warriors taught resistance and success by the example of living an exemplary life, living true. Jupiter in Libra has the scanner. It seeks that balance between principle and action, deeper insights through connections. It seeks those who have the inner fibre, that can be called on to stand strong.

Last month’s note: Jupiter in Libra inconjuncts that Neptune in Pisces. Jupiter shifts gears, directions and alliances. Good thing Neptune is quick on the uptake and understands most of the time. Jupiter likes social chatting and international conditions. There are times Pisces prefers solitude, to gently contemplate freely, making associations of mind and Spirit. He seeks intuition rather than advice from well dressed experts. Yet both have their truths and offerings. Important not to judge or to slur each other’s style. Sometimes legal matters take precedence, other times it’s the Court of Heaven that offers insight to the right thing to do. Rather than living in self chosen poverty, as Pisces can sometimes do, Jupiter in Libra leads us to the right school that brings you to the door of happiness doing what you always wanted to do! Could be art, music, design, being with people who celebrate exactly who you are!

Additional aspects, not in this Mars/Jupiter/Neptune set. Venus trines Pluto in earth signs Taurus and Capricorn. Venus in Taurus wants every comfort possible, sweetly. Pluto in Capricorn can easily do without, even prides itself on how less is more. In conservation that is admirable. And you can do without this to have that! Venus may pamper the old gent like never before, spoiling his integrity or helping him know he deserves more, the best! She may show him some values he just never thought about before. He may curb her self indulgence. A nice partnership may be formed. He may fund her campaign, or surprisingly, she may have the funds to start the foundation herself, and he may donate further endowments for expansion. Healing on many levels are likely – body, skin and bones.

The North Node is retrograding back to trine Saturn in Sagittarius. Karmic solutions are loved to growing beyond old fears of new territory. Teaching and pathfinding, intentions are realistically expanded, worked at daily with pleasure. The North Node recently also trined Uranus in Aries. Changes and new ventures were led out into the open, action taken to assure their continued success since Saturn has been on board as well. New friends and business alliances have been made. A union has been called into being, many Souls seeking the same goals.

Not all has been easy with Saturn having been square Chiron April 30. Saturn and Chiron are separating their square by 5 degrees now. They will be back but not until Nov 2. Though there were no major world events close to April 30, the threats of heartbreaking news was with us, and some suffered personal defeats in love, health or business. The aspect is fading now, but do continue to repair, make amends, heal what can be healed. Learn what you can, be kind to yourself and others. Less of being the martyr, more of standing good heartedly for potential and possibilities. Be real and work for it. Be counted. See more, #3 at this link

Saturn in Sagittarius is still in close trine, but retrograding away from Uranus. Work and education, friendships and networking are expanding the opportunities! Cross cultural expeditions bring new products. Uranus in Aries researches, has breakthroughs, uncanny knowledge that spikes more trials. Innovative solutions occur step after step. It just keeps going! Real estate demographics change. Professional goals broaden. Aging brings more satisfaction than ever. See more, #1 at this link

This is the very special time of year that Moon and Sun are in Moon’s own sign! Tune in. Sync up with the cycles. Blessed be….

Full Buck – Hay Moon! 4 Planet Full Moon Axis: Moon/Pluto & Sun/Mars!

Saturday July 8, 9:07 PM Pacific at 17 Capricorn 09

Cancer 2017 Full Moon Apartments Rand Elliott Oklahoma City

…to live in a piece of art, it’s an experience. Definitely non traditional, but intriguing. Rand Elliot designed this building for midtown Oklahoma City. It is a 10-unit apartment building with an oculus in the middle that will be called The Full Moon. You can see why Rand is called the Space Whisperer!

The building is on a North/South axis! Here’s what it will look like at night – imagine the Full Moon views!

Cancer 2017 Full Moon Apartments Rand Elliott Oklahoma City Night!

Though Cancer is a water sign, moist and fertile, and veggies are growing prolifically in the summer Sun, the Full Hay Moon is also the time grasses are drying and first hay being baled! The Capricorn Moon is aware of the timing, willing to work hard to get winter stores in for the stock. Bales are a good sturdy and useful shape that fit so snugly together on trucks and in barns. Pleases a Capricorn’s heart! Perfect time for summer party hayrides!

Full Moons are expansive, broadening. Cancer is Mom at home, lots of maternal feelings, protective; Capricorn is Dad the realist at work supporting home and family, concise and getting the job done on time. Cancer is nurturer, babies at breasts; Cap is the shelter builder. They are traditional signs, and often have a successful family business that may have been passed down through a parent. Moon is into commodities, knows what the public is up for, super aware of cycles! Capricorn is professional, the CEO, who is in strong connection with the accountant, the current ROI dept by dept. Together, Cancer/Capricorn have a lot to be proud of.

This Full Moon is powerfully tied with Pluto in Capricorn, 1 degree conjunct the Moon, 17/18 Capricorn! She may be caught in a web of the past, limited by imposed rules. Hard to get traction, missed opportunities. There may be secret alliances, the need to ‘pass the test,’ to join up. There are also possible other mergers, the company to be incorporated. Insurance and security are important. There can be death and inheritances. Healthwise, clean organic safe foods, detoxing takes precedence. Not overeating is best, but this can be a bingeing aspect too. Pay attention to skin, bone, knees. Love life needs to be well cared for – at worst it is a painful obsessive affair. At best it is a deepening of a true solid relationship. Pluto is the Ninja planet, the behind the scenes protector/warrior. Don’t pester him/her too much…

Mars is across the table with Sun! It will take some time before the potentials hinted at may come to light and a bond made. They don’t make their connection until Sun catches up after both have changed signs, July 26 at 4 LEO! Both fire planets, they are swimming along together in water sign Cancer, aware of the new cycle unfolding before them. They are feeling their way, intuiting and anticipating each other. By the time they get into Leo, they know each other pretty well and the starburst is made at the end of July! Some embellishment, a personal touch, lighting or color makes it super exciting for the launch! Have a terrific grand Grand Opening!

When there are disagreements, take it easy. Moon in Cap is subject to depression, discouragement, intimidation. They can seem tough, but it’s not always so. Mars is the upfront warrior. Sun and Mars are feisty and can be a tad unthinking, enjoying their independence, not wanting to be told what to do by any man, woman, child, parent or teacher! They can resist when it was their own idea! Stay aware. Check in time to time. Update and get updates, and if necessary, clean up the mess.

Thank goodness for the Mercury/Venus sextile! Mercury is just leaving, but the past few days there have been some amenable talks. Venus in Gemini has shared a ton of ideas, introduced neighbors, locals, twins and siblings! She’s been gracious and shared valuable information that has potential in several directions at once! Don’t underestimate her because she looks too young. Mercury has cruised into Leo, and is the planet of Gemini! Mercury has ideas that are big spirited, open hearted in Leo. Can be selfish, but are usually generous too! There are things to teach, ideas are bright! Love IS Light! Brainstorm and collect the outstanding thoughts! Let Gemini weave them along the Internet. Blog like crazy! Illustrate so artfully it can’t be resisted.

Mars is exact inconjunct Saturn in Sagittarius at 22 degrees! In Cancer, Mars is more likely not to be taken in by Saturn in Sag’s scholarly reputation though it is tempting. Mars in Cancer can tempt Saturn to quit wandering, there’s no place like home, to come back where the grass is greener. Mars reminds Saturn, the planet of the sign opposite Cancer, that there’s more than philosophy, there are passionate feelings too. That each culture is a ‘home’ to its people, not just something to be studied. Saturn invites Mars to travel with him for a time and see how faiths can be so different yet there is so much about people everywhere that is the same.

A lot hotter is Mars coming to square Uranus in Aries, Mars’ sign! They are in sniffing distance now, building to exact July 17! Each is independent and freedom loving! Quick, quick, quick! Sometimes accidental, they might fall into something so different and perfect! Not usually such a risk taker, Cancer may be shocked at events, certainly shaken loose from what used to be, and some of that her own doing! Sex may be bold, offensive or a surprise so electric you lost your socks! You don’t know whether to be sad or happy!

The Fixed Star Vega is at 15 Capricorn 19 within two degrees of our Moon in Capricorn! Vega is a pale sapphire star in the Constellation Lyra, the Harp of Orpheus. According to Elsbeth Ebertin: ‘In a good cosmic configuration, Vega is supposed to give artistic talents especially for music and acting, but also a liking for good living. With eccentric artists, this may lead to a debauched life. In connection with the Moon or Neptune a tendency for occult and mysticism may be given.’ Some say it covers everything it touches with enchanting charisma.

Vega is also close in square with Jupiter and sextile Neptune. In the square with Jupiter it may be entirely too much of a good thing, exaggerated principles, seductive teachings that are too good to be true by unqualified instructors. It could be pure grace sextile Neptune. It could put you in touch with dreams beyond your wildest beliefs, spellbinding artistic and musical performances that transport the audience.

The last Jupiter inconjunct Neptune is exact July 4, and is quite close still, but will be fading. Recently this has been a backdrop aspect since May 10, potently in a 1 degree aspect all this time! This aspect was the one immediately preceding the Nov 8 Presidential Elections, and initiated a set of SIX aspects late 2016 that were spread throughout 2016, finishing Nov 11, 2017.

Optimistic Jupiter in Libra visions as far off in time and space as it can! Neptune IS time and space, boundless. An inconjunct aspect invites exploration, peripheral vision, a detour to another dimension! It’s a bit off center, disturbing, but exactly as it should be to get our attention!

Jupiter in Libra is like tilting the tides of humanity back and forth until the remaining ones stand at the center, able to be stable as the world shifts around them. Jupiter always looks for the best, finely tuned in Libra! Neptune in Pisces runs the tides and shifts the sand we stand on. We need to be able to not just stand, but to flow, to compensate, at times swim and merge with higher powers, to make adjustments fluidly. Dreams can come true as we learn divine navigation.

Jupiter wants to know about Matters of the Soul, and they think Neptune/Pisces knows. They want to know if you are a True Believer and what that means. With Neptune in Pisces, the quest goes far and wide. There may be no single answer, but instead, a potpourri of Evolutions.

Whether you return to the trail you first started on, or take the new trail you find yourself, either way, you are not the person you used to be. You have seen some mysteries, there has been doubt, delving and wonderings, questions that will take lifetimes to answer. Sometimes it’s only the turn of your head, a moment’s glimpse, a singular flash of insight that leads you to a new vision. Right on spiritual compass, the transmutation happens.

Moon/Pluto and Sun/Mars is a Warrior’s axis. Live deep, Stand tall, Love well!

New SuperMoon! Mars TSquare! Saturn at GALACTIC CENTER!

Thursday May 25, 12.44 PM Pacific at 4 Gemini 47!

Our May new SuperMoon is the second of three in a row 2017 New SuperMoons, the closest supermoon of the year! We may experience higher tides in our thinking, excited about new ideas that merge and spread. Grads will find themselves thinking about whether to go on with school, where to go, what to do! It may be a little overwhelming for everyone.

Only a week ago we finished the exact Jupiter inconjunct Neptune and Saturn trine Uranus May 17 and 18. Jupiter inconjunct Neptune will stay with us until July 4, 48 days! It is what we call being in Station, at the turn of Jupiter’s retrograde to direct/forward. It turns forward on the June 9 Full Strawberry – Rose Moon! Every New and Full Moon through the July 8 Full Buck Moon will have this aspect strongly.

The New Moon is not in close degrees with the Jupiter inconjunct, nor is it making any close aspects to any other planets. It stands on its own. Moon is Mother nurturer and at New Moons feeds Father Sun. In Gemini you can bet it is alphabet soup! She whispers tiny thoughts to take his mind off things, sings faery songs, dances in the light, does the crossword puzzle with him at the breakfast table. She makes a quick run, checks the neighbors cat on her way home. Then they are off for the day, gathering choice bits of information here and there. A few errands, home for dinner and a quick exchange of hugs and updates. A settle in or friends over. Sweet dreams, talking in your sleep.

There are lots of connections at 19 and among the 20s degree planets.

Venus Squares Pluto. Love is being tested. Pluto in Capricorn claims experience and age on his side. Venus in Aries stamps her foot, wants what she wants right now and is willing to fight about it. Pulling rank doesn’t fly with her. She’s wanting what’s new, to take a risk. He’s wanting the way it has been or the most practical at the least cost. It will take some give and take plus a little time to work it out.

Jupiter in Libra inconjuncts that Neptune in Pisces. Jupiter shifts gears, directions and alliances. Good thing Neptune is quick on the uptake and understands most of the time. Jupiter likes social chatting and international conditions. There are times Pisces prefers solitude, to gently contemplate freely, making associations of mind and Spirit. He seeks intuition rather than advice from well dressed experts. Yet both have their truths and offerings. Important not to judge or to slur each other’s style. Sometimes legal matters take precedence, other times it’s the Court of Heaven that offers insight to the right thing to do. Rather than living in self chosen poverty, as Pisces can sometimes do, Jupiter in Libra leads us to the right school that brings you to the door of happiness doing what you always wanted to do! Could be art, music, design, being with people who celebrate exactly who you are!

Mercury in Taurus sextiles Neptune! Time to get the word out. Go to the specialty school. Let the dream come true, find it a safe place, a home to grow in. Along with your fine intuition, get steady in the work. A bit at a time will do nicely. Be patient, speak kindly, but say it. Be there.

Mars in Gemini sextiles Uranus in Aries! Now that’s Spark! Mars is the planet of Aries! It loves to be first, an innovator, the consultant. In Gemini it loves variety, to move and mutate, adapt and deliver! Uranus is the ultimate lead, a planet of friendship, community purpose, internet, worldwide flight and organizations for the best and betterment for all! Mars will never be bored and never be done with all that potential! Uranus will be thrilled with the new kid on the block, how quickly ideas are put together. Occasionally things may be a bit premature, but you gotta laugh at the delight as new things are tested, corrected, attempted again until they get it right! Time to celebrate!

Mars Mutables TSquare with Chiron and Saturn

Mars squares Chiron in Pisces. Mars may be stunned by how Chiron’s feelings might have been hurt, and back away. Chiron may be thinking how Mars didn’t realize there could be a lack of health or physical ability, a thoughtless statement made. Whoa! Let’s all backup a bit. Slow it down. Mars in Gemini isn’t known for patience, so keep to short sentences, statements and requests. Agree to meet again very soon. Due to the differences in tempos, it may end with an agreement to let go of your connection for now. But if possible, let’s not let this fester and lose each other entirely. Be friends but not work together? Aside from this, there could be injuries to hands or feet. Burns, rashes. Or Mars jumps in with new remedies that are remarkable!

Saturn and Chiron are separating their square by 2 degrees now. They will be back but not until Nov 2. There is going to be plenty of time to think things over after the April 30 square. This is not considered an easy aspect, some even call it a ‘heartbreak’ aspect, tough on relationships if the degrees activate your chart in the romance dept. Losses can be formidable seeming whether in love, health or business. Maybe you got in over your head, need to back up, slow down. Saturn in Sagittarius can be opinionated, a demanding instructor, intimidating. Or he can make you work extra hard to get things done and you’re glad that he did, couldn’t have done it by yourself. Back to school and on your feet. Chiron can be a weak spot, and you may be embarrassed for it, even in denial. But if you are facing up to it, Saturn can help you get over that threshold too! Might not be fun, but a huge relief. Did it once, can do it again. See more, #3 at this link

Mars is opposite Saturn in Sagittarius! If Saturn isn’t fast enough, Mars has got his boots on to give a forward kick to speed things up! Saturn is faster in Sagittarius, but Mars is in Gemini, the combination that is if you think it, you do it, now! Mars may have terrific ideas, but Saturn, the wise TaskMaster, knows the order of things, how to conserve energy and place it accurately both in time and space. To Mars it may feel like running into a brick wall, and it may be a lifesaving event! On the other hand, what brick wall wasn’t meant to be scaled with one flying leap?! If that Mars spunk is right, Saturn may wish he went too!

Saturn in Sagittarius is still in close trine, but retrograding away from Uranus. Work and education, friendships and networking expanding the opportunities! Cross cultural expeditions bring new products. Uranus in Aries researches, has breakthroughs, uncanny knowledge that spikes more trials. Innovative solutions occur step after step. It just keeps going! Real estate demographics change. Professional goals broaden. Aging brings more satisfaction than ever. See more, #1 at this link

Uranus is strong at 26 Aries, trining the GALACTIC CENTER, GC, at 26 Sagittarius, where Saturn is now sitting! Saturn is holding the fort, protecting the treasures of our Universe, metering the exchange. Uranus is the planet of the heavens, the electric and eclectic keeper of the Sacred Akashic Records of our Souls! Saturn is the planet of archaeology, ruler of Time, ageless Wisdom. Uranus, ruler of airplanes and the Internet wants to uplift the nature of the lineage of the records, include more of our connections with the fringes, explore possible galactic alliances, changes that are currently beyond our wildest thoughts. Saturn steadies the ship while Uranus amps up the sizzle, electricity, shimmer and valences. Some of that will attract travelers from beyond!

Though a lot feels uncertain these days, know that we are cosmically right on course!

Full Strawberry – Rose Moon!
Jupiter Inconjunct Neptune Station, Jupiter Direct!
Galactic Center, Fixed Star Rigel!

Friday June 9, 6:10 AM Pacific at 18 Sagittarius 53

Gemini Strawberry Full Moon NYC Boni de Oliveira

42nd Street. New York City’s version of Gemini, glowing with the ultimate urban twins, framing a delicious “strawberry moon” on ‪Summer Solstice‬ 2016, the longest and brightest day of the year! Magnificent photo by Bruno Boni de Oliveira. 

Gemini-Sagittarius is according to some spiritual systems the axis of Humanity, the Moon of Metropolis! The Good Word is spread near and far, no Soul neglected!

Orion’s Fixed Star Rigel was at 17 Gemini 02 in 2014, less than two degrees of the Sun/Full Moon axis and inconjunct Pluto. With the Sun, it is potent, noted for being lucky in enterprise, has technical and artistic ability, loves to gain wisdom and knowledge and to spread it to others as well. It has strong will power, love of action! Other factors being well, it can bring fame. If not well, it may be reckless and foolhardy. The Moon may feel deluged with words, though the Moon in Sagittarius may be hugely curious and ready to tag along just to see what will happen! Askew with Pluto may dredge up old obsessions that need clearing, free powers that have been abandoned, forgotten. Now they may be tempted to come back into the Light! Things might be more safe than they used to be.

This 18 degree Sun/Moon axis was with Jupiter, trine and sextile. Sun was lighting the way, charging the valence with Jupiter in Libra May 29 to June 3! Invitations were extended, meetings held, liaisons made, balance sought, honors awarded! Moon in Sagittarius, Jupiter’s sign, sextiled Jupiter June 8 at 6:45 PM Pacific, remembering, confidence and optimism reestablished, hope restored! Jupiter being in Station, standing still, has kept that focus. TODAY, at 7:04 AM, less than an hour after the Full Moon, Jupiter turns Direct/forward! Gradually energy of the previous days will be released!

Sun and Moon are in the SAME degree with Pluto in Capricorn. There is a test. Sun in Gemini is aware that certain things are not to be said, others to be revealed in a good way. Some things are universal property, others are personal, not to be stolen or copied. No pickpockets while traveling, take precautions. No uninvited picking people’s minds, or uninvited psychic mind reading. Just because you can’t see it doesn’t make it right. Moon in Sagittarius is a Seeker, comforting people with perspective, enjoying diversity wherever it goes. It shares what it has learned, dispersing knowledge and insights. Pluto in Capricorn may not trust such generosity. Time is their test; do you prove true. And so with your ideas. Cap wonders if it is too good to be true, too lightweight to endure in service. Jot down the ideas, test a little at a time. The Moon in Sag may be long gone, but unbeknownst to them the ideas may live on with you quite well.

Mama Moon and Father Time Saturn are having a meeting! Moon is moving forward, Saturn is retrograding back to her! They make their conjunction 6:19 PM Pacific after the Full Moon. They represent home and family, unconditional love and support and our professional standing, the breadwinner, builder. Each cares deeply, lives in the responsibilities of life. In Sagittarius that may center around education, important tenets of our ethics, justice, our ability to broaden our territory or keep an open mind. Sometimes when Moon is with Saturn she is sad, afraid he won’t be able to live up to his goals. In generally cheerful Sagittarius, temporarily her spirits may be a bit down. Yet though she may seem a bit emotional, exuberant over the top to him, he is cheered by her presence, in fact, a godsend!

Venus, Mercury and Mars are having a threesome! Venus is happy in her own sign Taurus, glad for a hug! Mercury is in one of his own signs also, Gemini! So MUCH to think about, speak of, listen to! Mars is the rights fighter in Cancer, the champion standing up for women and children. He finds you a new home immediately! They are at 3 and 4 degrees, Mercury right in the middle, semi sextile midpoint both Venus and Mars, the lovers! Uh, phone sex could be the best! :) Meet you later! Venus is scanning for values, beauty, a strong foundation, solid business. Sextile Mars in Cancer there is potential as a provider, possibly they can make a home together, definitely he may be the leader for her cause! Gemini wants to talk it over. Consult neighbors and siblings. Get data to backup ideas. If it proves feasible, it’s contract time!

The Galactic Center is still involved with our lunar events! See more This time it is in a Grand Fire Trine! Uranus is at 27 Aries, the Galactic Center is at 26 Sagittarius – Saturn still very close! The grand fire trine is completed by the North Node right on the money at 26 Leo! The North Node in Leo takes us to the Heart of creative expression, each giving their special gift. Uranus in Aries, the first sign, is the spark that ignites the web, the Internet of Consciousness! The Galactic Center in Sagittarius raises our perception! We ascend to a greater vision, see what is coming, and it doesn’t seem so far away after all!

Jupiter inconjunct Neptune is still the outer planet aspect that is the backdrop for our lunar charts. It started May 10, and will continue through the July 8 Full Buck Moon. Jupiter in Libra is like tilting the tides of humanity back and forth until the remaining ones stand at the center, able to be stable as the world shifts around them. Jupiter always looks for the best, finely tuned in Libra! Neptune in Pisces runs the tides and shifts the sand we stand on. We need to be able to not just stand, but to flow, to compensate, at times swim and merge with higher powers. Adjustments can be made fluidly. Dreams can come true as we learn divine navigation.

Gemini/Sagittarius! Gemini is the Word! In this case it is carried by the Full Moon Sun, the Heart. Core communications carry an essence of truth, a deeper meaningfulness that attracts fellow beings that are on the same Path. Sagittarius observes from the vantage point of the Moon, intuitive cycles, natural rhythms. Our purpose becomes more clear as we let some ventures fade, while others fill us with joy. The journey is embraced. We may start with babble and gossip, but we grow. We sort out or try out many possibilities, coming to learn which have potential. Our choices start to seem to have a luck about them. Sagittarius naturally senses what to follow, where to go, which will get us to the future that fits. Sharing our stories keeps us on the road, our own personal planetary grid. Gemini is the expert of linkage. If there is a breakdown in the system, they just know. Off they go to make the repair. Sagittarius might do an on-the-spot reroute as conditions change. They work together quite well.

May your journeys be entirely inspiring!
