Happy Birthdays, Tauruses!

Celebrate our Home, Mother Earth!

Taurus Oaks Murphy Meadow by Ger Erickson

Ger Erickson’s foggy dawn image has 3 varieties of magnificent oaks at Murphy Meadow, Round Valley Regional Preserve, Contra Costa County CA. December 5, 2016. Oak is Taurus’s official tree. See image full size

From Ger’s sweeping image to Tom Egan’s tiny desert plant smaller than a quarter, the width of a few grains of sand….the Barstow Woolly Sunflower, Eriophyllum mohavense, both are special parts of our amazing planet.

Taurus Barstow Woolly Sunflower by Tom Egan

From big to small, there are precious, even sacred, treasures everywhere. Please tread carefully and kindly wherever you go. Walk like a Taurus. Go barefooted. Feel your connection.

As a tribute to Earth Day, In these times of ecological imperilment, animals, plants, humans, I feel called to possibly inspire you to further dedicate your efforts, as you can, to protect all who are endangered. Some areas, and loss of precious lives, can be irrevocable. Each of us loves different landscapes. I may not have imaged yours, but you know I would have if there were space. Bless you for being such a wonderful Earth Steward!

TAURUS 2017 Celestial Highlights!

Astronomy Summer Triangle Milky Way - Deneb, Vega, AltairThroughout the month of May you won’t find the Milky Way in the early part of the night. The disk of our Milky Way galaxy is flat, like a pancake. At northern temperate latitudes, as evening falls in the month of May, the plane of the pancake-shaped galactic disk pretty much coincides with the plane of your horizon! We can’t see it until late at night. When we do, the Milky Way passes right through the Summer Triangle – Vega, Deneb, Altair. Watch for it rising in the eastern sky if you’re up late! EarthSky.org image!

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

Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Taurus 2017-May 2018!

Taurus Golden Sea of Canola Flowers in Luoping, China!

Golden Sea of Canola Flowers in Luoping, China. The location is described as north of the snail field and south of the Golden Rooster Peak Cong and thousands of mountains.

May you never move more than your personal pace, but in comfort and style, music and beauty.

Four outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter are changing signs in Taurus’s year to come.

Pluto is just past mid 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! Though Taurus is also an Earth sign, it does not necessarily enjoy the scrutiny of Pluto the planet of Taurus’s opposite sign Scorpio. Yet Pluto sees what is supreme in us as well as flaws that need healing that releases that goodness in us to perform fully. Taurus may be enchanted out of a spot they were not aware they were stuck in. Their solid offerings revealed, Pluto in Capricorn offers them the work!

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. Taurus likes being grounded and steady. It loves fresh water to moisten fertile land, refresh the body, cleanse the Spirit. Neptune can be subtle, the fog over the land, or the rock music rhythm while you are cleaning house or dancing in the meadow! It makes us wonder, loosens our earthly bonds, be more finely in tune. It helps us remember our dreams, and that not all beauty is of the flesh or money.

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 0 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! Tauruses are willing, but by their own choice. They generally prefer daily dependable security. Uranus in Aries is not that! They are perfectly strange and get your attention! This crazy stranger walks onto your property and darned if they don’t have some great ideas! You find yourself switching this and that and when you look up they are gone! You may be inspired to meet with your locals, hire a consultant to update things periodically.

When Uranus gets into Taurus it’s going to feel quite personal to Tauruses. You may be nervous, so ready for change, run away from home with friends, start a new business! Uh, you may be more than horny, enjoy some exotic company! Your body may literally change, and you find yourself singing! You could be on your own or involved in strong community organizations. Uranus will be in Taurus through April 2026, activating your chart in various ways, bit by bit, as it goes through the degrees.

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, covers 24 Pisces to 1 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 and is quite willing to work with Taurus’s natural herbal and touch healing remedies! Pisces knows about cleanses, meditation. Taurus is quite willing to sit with the flowers, have steam baths, teas, herbal inhalants. Some of these remedies can be applied symbolically to the rest of our lives. Be thoughtful about your relationships. Give them time to heal. Be genuine and clear about your business endeavors. Keep good people in your life.

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! It may make a Taurus head spin, but already we are being tuned up to be ready!

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through April 2018. Saturn goes into its own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017!

In Sagittarius Saturn may find his travel budget lacking for the time being, or may find perfect low budget opportunities! Education may need to wait, but is still a good investment as soon as possible. Saturn has some realistic proposals that a Taurus can get behind. The plans look well founded. Time and costs need working out. Diversifying may be a bit unsettling, and there needs to be steady attention to keep progress going well. It may seem a bit pretentious or upscale to Taurus, out of your element, so maybe keep your old homestead. Maybe hire the traveler after checking their creds, and check on them from time to time.

Those with Saturn 21 to 29 degree Sagittarius will be having their Sagittarian Saturn Returns. Sagittarians are seers, looking across the mountains, over the rainbow, keenly to the arrow’s point far, far away. Saturn knows 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!

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

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, Saturn might have more work than anybody should, or they are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when they get replacement work that suits them better or they start their own business! Taurus is strong and doesn’t mind starting and having their own business. It’s in their genes, having been farmers, Mother Nature their only boss. They are survivors used to huge challenges. Capricorn, the last Earth sign, brings the science of it all to bear, and production, no matter what business it is, increases. Laws and contracts may help or hinder; get expert advice. Timing makes a difference. It may be the perfect time to retire! Saturn will be in Capricorn until Dec 2020

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. Taurus and Libra share Venus as their ruler. In Taurus it is a strong body beautiful, growing the flowers, ownership of fine things, land, sensuality. In Libra it is social, beauty is fine arts, symphonies, ballet & plays. A classy city penthouse with views and airspace, lots of light keeps the spirits up. Dance is pure Grace. Libra brings finesse to Taurus, expands their social, business and life connections. Taurus invites Libra to be with the Earth, not forget their natural roots. Quite different ways of loving a lot of the same things. Jupiter invites Taurus to learn more, make good use of other humans who would like to help. When you travel, be comfortable, in good company.

Jupiter in Scorpio is opposite Taurus. Libra has prepared the way, making introductions, getting Taurus used to new people and ideas. Things are not as steady as they used to be, but we’re getting used to it and stepping up. Scorpio says it’s not just your money, but how we put it all together for the greater good or more powerful investments that will pave the way to support future ventures, causes. They will ask for funding. Projects and plans will be discussed. There will be important ideas considered. Jupiter is good willed, and with Scorpio offers new healing information. When we up our capacity. old debilities will be left behind. Our potential for love increases. Let go the fears, remove the old blocks. Stay safe, be clear seeing with clean motives.

If your Jupiter is in these Libra or Scorpio degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, 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.

Here’s the coming Sign Changes Timetable:

2017
Oct 10  Jupiter from Libra to Scorpio
Dec 19 Saturn from Sagittarius to Capricorn!

2018
Apr 17 Chiron from Pisces to Aries
May 15 Uranus from Aries to Taurus

Happy Birthdays, Tauruses! May you meander in great happiness.

Special request! Pledge to Get Kids Outdoors

Nearly two-thirds of the U.S. population does not have close-to-home access to nature, with the greatest disparities found in low-income communities. Community gardens can bring nature into small spaces and are a great introduction to the outdoors for many kids.

Time in nature makes us whole, healthy, and happy. It also improves learning and strengthens our communities. Adding more green space can even help mitigate some of the impacts of climate change. Yet far too few people have safe access to nearby nature.


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

Taurus Advocates, Steady in the Light!

Taurus Pregnancy Blessingway Image by YoginiMomma

Birthing is Primal Advocacy. A BlessingWay ceremony honors the Birth to come, the Mother’s Journey. Beautiful image by Yogini Momma

From one day to the next Tauruses walk this Earth, touching, tending, teaching by Being. Beauty is their Grace, patience is their Charm, sweet gentle kindness is their healing gift. Children get peaceful, animals are calmed. We have time to notice each other, listen to the words, adjust our tone. Flowers bloom, brooks sparkle, the Sun bestows his light magic. We get cooked by the Great Spirit. The Buddha sat by the road, grounded and centered. Compassion can become a way of life.

We’re not saying sit down and take it. Not a chance. Stand true and solid. Have genuine outrage. Start a foundation that never gives up, uses common sense, and gets the job done! Dependable renewable energy is at your fingertips, right in your heart! Determination is one breath, then one step at a time. Others will be right beside you in those spiritual traces, pulling, pushing, just as strongly as you are!

There are moments to take time out, restore. Thinking is good. You will know when to adjust and start anew. Modify your pace at times to observe clearly, watch the flow around you and see the precise moment to make your move. Stubborn is just one side of the coin.

Tauruses love doing touch work, massage, working with textiles and textures, fine clothes, comfort items and delicious foods. Beauty businesses are dear to their heart – flowers, hair and nail pampering. Creams, soaps, sachets. Exercise to improve our health and supple fitness, relax our spirits, bring Peace. Yoga and meditation. Working with the land suits these nature lovers. Natural remedies – herbal tinctures, flower essences. Landscaping, botanic gardens, seed sellers, compost makers, farmers. Setting up foundations, conservancies, environmental protection organizations with the gold in their counting house making having worked hard for all that money well worth it. We hear the phrase ‘strong as an ox,’ and you can count on it. Weight lifting, moving businesses are easy and enjoyable for them.

Health is usually strong, but overeating those tasty foods, sweets, is their nemesis. When they sit, sometimes it’s hard to get up. Lazing in those flannel sheets feels good forever, especially on cold mornings. Tauruses have lovely melodic voices. Sometime they strain their throat muscles, get sore throats. In the old days, hanging was a danger! Our thyroid gland stores and produces hormones that affect the function of virtually every organ in our bodies. It is so important for it to function well – it ‘regulates our metabolic rate and is associated with modest changes in body weight and energy levels.’

As Lovers, the sensuality is sweet, fragrant as a bed of rose petals! Sharing food, especially those chocolates, is sensual. Whipped cream. Though perhaps a bit possessive, if you need to feel secure, they will be there for you forever! They will support you, your efforts for success, back you financially if they can and you let them, offering excellent sensible advice along the way.They may be slow to propose, but it’s worth the wait!

Fertility is just about a given with Tauruses. A BlessingWay ceremony is perfect. Taurus children love snuggling but dislike being restrained! Their strength and sheer persistence often gets them their way. Now that’s a challenge! Distraction works sometimes, but you can imagine their power of focus. Once you give them a toy, don’t expect it back anytime soon, LOL! Mine! They learn a lot by doing, living in and testing their bodies, seeing for themselves. And it’s amazing how fast they can move once they have their sights on a new location! Food is no problem. Try them with different textures and flavors, just mind the calories!

There is usually a family pet or two, doggies to romp with at the lake or beach. Piggies, lambs, goat milk, chickies, a mule or horse or two or three would be sweet. Respectfully at times there may be furs, hides or skins about, some as clothing, some for making beaded ceremonial pieces, drum covers. Reliable Tauruses are right for the day by day, hour to hour care needed for animal husbandry, birthings.

As seniors, steady walks, getting refreshed outdoors in all kinds of weather may keep their spirits in good fettle. Gardening, weaving, gentle relaxing productive activities are peaceful. Trips to see the wonders of our Earth, educational flower tours keep our minds working. Caring for furry four leggeds, maybe ones that have been rescued, keeps us engaged, and it is a blessing for the creatures.

As the advocates you Tauruses always are, keep what’s dear to your heart at the top of your list.

Stay Strong, Stay Green, be Fertile and Forever Blessed!

Happy Birthdays, Aquarians!

Aquarius Oprah Winfrey Air Sign at Grand Canyon!

Oprah at Grand Canyon ~ magnificent, majestic and sacred! She has dubbed 2017 the YearOfAdventure, so she’s exploring the great wide open and inviting you to do the same!

Jan 29, 1954 Oprah Winfrey arrived on the planet and has become a known part of the planet. From obscure small beginnings she has risen, become the first woman in history to both own and produce her own talk show. Many of you know much of her achievements – influential book critic, an Academy Award-nominated actress, magazine publisher. She is also, according to several assessments, the most influential woman in the world.

What many don’t know is Aquarians are great bankers! And Aquarius is the sign that follows Capricorn, the sign of career, making Aquarius the receiver of the spoils! Having that wealth gives the opportunity for sponsoring community work and international organizations. Oprah holds the distinctions of being the richest African American of the 20th century, the most philanthropic African American of all time, and the world’s only black billionaire for three straight years! 2.9 billion USD (2017) Forbes

Venus conjunct her Sun gives beauty and money! They and her Mercury in Aquarius trine her Jupiter in Gemini give her super intelligence, a quick wit, a broad view and more money! The Moon in Sagittarius was born to go places, cross cultural gaps, be a natural teacher! Jupiter and its sign Sagittarius are optimistic, see far ahead, are lucky in their pursuits! And it’s fun! Aquarius and Sagittarius are in combination, signs that need freedom and often don’t marry. She has been with her boyfriend Stedman Graham since 1986; they spend a lot of time apart and have never married.

Venus with the Sun gives self indulgence, a love of sweets and carbs. Aquarians aren’t famous for calorie burning exercise, nor is Venus unless it is dance. Her Mars in Scorpio square Pluto in Leo can block exercise through embarrassment, need for privacy, physical discomfort. She has been a brave woman publicly facing these challenges that so many scorn. Yet these same placements have also helped her break many financial barriers!

Oprah’s latest book Food, Health And Happiness is now available at Amazon: ‘Oprah Winfrey will be the first to tell you, she has had a complicated relationship with food. It’s been both a source of delight and comfort for her, but also the cause of an ongoing struggle with her weight. In Food, Health, and Happiness, Oprah shares the recipes that have allowed eating to finally be joyful for her. With dishes created and prepared alongside her favorite chefs, paired with personal essays and memories from Oprah herself, this cookbook offers a candid, behind-the-scenes look into the life (and kitchen!) of one of the most influential and respected celebrities in the world. Delicious, healthy, and easy to prepare, these are the recipes Oprah most loves to make at home and share with friends and family…a taste of happiness, a ritual to be shared, a toast to life!’

Remember, she has proclaimed 2017 the Year of Adventure. She says ‘Try different restaurants. Take a class on something new. Be challenged. Get stimulated. Have some fun! And redefine what fun means for you.’

Celestial Highlights!

Astronomy Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Full Moon Feb 10, 11 2017

Thanks to Sky & Telescope for this image!

Per Sky & Telescope: ‘The beginning and end of a penumbral eclipse are not visible to the eye. In fact, no shading can be detected until about 2/3 of the Moon’s disk is immersed in the penumbra. This would place the period of eclipse visibility within about 3/4 hours of greatest eclipse (about 00:00 to 01:30 UT1). Keep in mind that this is only an estimate. Atmospheric conditions and the observer’s visual acuity are important factors to consider.’

It is often hard to differentiate between a normal full Moon and a penumbral eclipse of the Moon, but watch closely at mid eclipse for deep penumbral shading on the northern half of the Moon closest to the Umbra!

The Pacific time for the Eclipse is 4:33 PM, but best viewing times are different!

Penumbral eclipse begins: 2:34 p.m. (on February 10)
Greatest eclipse (nearest umbra): 3:44 p.m. (on February 10)
Penumbral eclipse ends: 6:53 p.m. (on February 10)

For how to convert UT to your own local time, see Time Zones and Universal Time.

Enjoy watching!

2017 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Aquarius!

Aquarius Big Skies Space Freedom Beauvert Lake, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada by traveler, self described scrambler ChrisW

Big skies, great space gives an Aquarian room to move around! On a clear day you can see forever. Beauvert Lake, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada by traveler self described scrambler ChrisW

Pluto is just past mid Capricorn through Jan 2018. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Aquarius has no such attachments as Pluto does, not known for obsessions, compulsions. Aquarius is Capricorn’s neighboring sign ahead. Capricorn built the structure so Aquarius can be free to meet there, contemplate and organize community groups, world networks to update old ways, invent new channels! Aquarius is the last Air signs. Gemini is our personal breath of Life. Libra is the breath and air among us, living relationships. Aquarius is the planetary air above us that we fly in, that unites us all. Resources are intentionally directed to make the world a better place.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Aquarius is the sign before Pisces, that transmits the Word on the winds across the world, through the internet. It breathes the beliefs of Pisces through us so all may know what needs saving. Timeless visions are to be awakened with magical words. Right at home, friend to friend, profound matters are discussed looking for unusual approaches that will shake us from our sleep! Neptunians understand our oddities and the language of the future, have an uncanny knack for seeing where to go and why! They are happy to be our Guides, sensitive to every nuance.

Uranus covers 21 to 28 Aries through January 2018. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. ChangeMaker Aquarius feels right at home with this visitor of his own kind, ever moving, inspired and inspiring! Aries is First, is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Not only do they have the ideas, but they get put into action! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries just might keep up! Aquarius likes speedy sports, air inclined, but their weakness is the think tank blues, sitting entranced at that keyboard, inventing or sneaking in a computer game here and there! Aries gets them outside, demanding better food to support the mountain hike in fresh clean air!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, like Uranus, also covers 21 to 28 degrees, but in Pisces through January 2018. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Aquarius incorporates all kinds of electronics into our modern medicine, from digital thermometers to taking a ride in the body scanning machine at the hospital! Research is one of their businesses, innovative solutions can succeed where old remedies didn’t work well enough. Neptune might recommend meditation, relaxation, transformation through doing work you love, something meaningful. Aquarius couldn’t agree more! They know that freedom is Being, true to your core. Though Pisces the Magician might wish for fairytale romance, Aquarius may wish for freedom more. Chiron can help them see how a partnership with someone who is comfortable to let them come and go on whim or airline schedule, is bright like they are, or simply gentle, kind, patient, grounding and admiring, could work quite well!

Saturn travels from 21 degrees Sagittarius to 3 degrees Capricorn in the year ahead. Aquarius enjoys a good trip with business compadres! They can go to meetings to promote special projects for sustainability, improve laws for more people, build universities, contribute computer gear for students or seniors! People of different cultures will add their values, innovations, manners and customs that improve well being. Bonds may be formed over distances, territories realistically expanded. Aquarians may find themselves quite comfortable in a business that intrigues them. They are more willing to take care of themselves because they have good reason!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, there will be more traditional endeavors. There will be preservation, building for long term results. Rules, responsibility, respect for elders called for. Aquarius can see how this is favorable. Long term means choosing what makes sense for our environment, to protect the future for our children, build and select systems that favor seniors. Aquarius will be hard pressed to keep up with inventions for the needs of the people! Research may bring some medical breakthroughs.

Those of you with Saturn 21 Sag to 3 Cap will be having your Saturn Returns, a 29 year event! Saturn can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements in that 29 years! If you are on your first Return, you may be having substantial career success, marry, have your first child, buy a home! If you are on your second Return, you may be thinking of retirement plans, be called to take care of aging parents. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from experienced experts may be just what you need. Sagittarius Saturn may find their travel budget lacking for the time being, or they may find perfect low budget opportunities! Education may need to wait, but is still a good investment as soon as possible. Capricorn Saturn might have more work than anybody should, or they are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when they get replacement work that suits them better or start their own business! Take good care of yourself, keep your networks alive. Housing, parenting may be challenged. Age may become a factor. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have!

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Aquarius thrives in all that travel to far away places, meeting people who think out of the box we are used to! A travel or import business could be lucrative! Relationships may work better than usual. Libra has a certain amount of flexibility, is intelligent, and has a broader range of give and take than many other signs. Jupiter can be opinionated, but learns from inventive Aquarius and it suits them because Jupiter always has an eye to future and greater possibilities. Jupiter’s optimism is contagious and Aquarius is surprised and pleased to find a thoughtful and willing colleague!

Happy Birthdays, Aquarians! Quite an exciting and productive year coming for you!


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

Aquarius, the Flight of a Lifetime!

Aquarius, the Flight of a Lifetime! Earth Girl

Angels for Earth, my title, by Roberto Campus. Roberto lives in rural Vermont, and his client list is long and famous!

Not your average citizen! Aquarians are seekers beyond small thoughts. Magical flying dragons to Angels of Magnitude, they take us there.

Above and beyond! Aquarius is an Air sign, rises above all other signs! It is the high wind that speeds along the mountain tops. It is the air that planes fly in and spaceships travel beyond!

The Aquarius double zig zag symbol is where the mountain tops meet the sky, the Aquarius Zone, where the crisp air goes straight to your brain! Freedom of the Ethers! Elevation, tall vision, in the invisible element! The Internet is a form of modern day ether, and many an Aquarian is accused of being legless in their computer chair, no exercise, no sun, not even much air! Either way, fly your hang glider or zot around the internet world whenever you are intrigued to do so! Awareness expands, awakening begins!

Electronic music is the sound of the Universe thinking ~ airy melodies that float, or ones with a fast beat that tickle your neurons. Exotic unruly out of the box jazz is inspiring and contemporary music that defies definition pleases your Soul! Music from every dimension, different cultures, with strange instruments and tonal qualities are quite comfortable. Singing, making your own music, is entirely free, and your voice may be incredibly unique.

Aquarians excel in all uncommon activities, which seem to have a magnetising effect on you! Aviation, parachuting, ballooning, hang gliding, rock climbing, pole vault or high jump, skating, skiing, and free form dance, etc. Sports with friends, or Solo hiking, especially at the alpine high-in-the-sky level refreshes your spirit. On earth, birding with friends or on your own can take you to unique places.

Inventions, innovative businesses, detached bankers and bartenders, writing, astronomy and space odyssey fantasies open gateways. Humanitarian projects to help people and/or the world are a scale you can appreciate and thrive in. That’s where you might meet your match! Someone with a consciousness that is quick with creative solutions, not afraid of your ideas and intelligence, broad in scope, life changing, keeps you connecting. It’s electric!

Because Aquarians themselves can be eccentric, odd, loners and lonely, people of all kinds, who aren’t mainstream, feel comfortable to tell them the unusual things about themselves. Aquarians are more fascinated than fearful. They often simply accept what is rather than judge it. Their friends certainly aren’t boring. Aquarians will have an eclectic group of friends who don’t necessarily enjoy each other! A research team, computer project, a mutual cause will more likely bring them together productively for a time. Then they will migrate in different directions to higher ground in a good way.

Healthwise, your body really does need food. Just as the planet needs sustainability, so do you! Go for quality food, explore what exercise you actually would like to do. Sleep as you can. Aquarians always have that hum, buzz, are plugged in to the greater world intelligence. There are places and people different beyond the average person’s wildest imagination! Stay well so you can go there! Things need doing. Be well so you can do them. Find mind changing ways to communicate your special gifts, insights. Keep your brain well fueled so it is present for the crucial moments of exchange, when the next level can be attained!

There are many Angels in disguise. Some laugh and tease us. Some are not pretty. We are enchanted by others. We know there is something right around the corner and we catch a glimpse. They hold our hands to cross the inter dimensional bridge. Some are lovers, others are the stranger you will never see again. There are everyday teachers that take us with them. Some walk, some fly, but every Aquarian is on the flight of a lifetime!

We are on the threshold of a vastly changing reality. You have a special part in its unfoldment.

Mercury Retrograde 2016 Sagittarius Capricorn Astrology Switzerland Switchbacks Furza

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sagittarius New Moon Milky Way Road

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

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

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

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

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

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

Three Midpoints, two with Mars!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

May your Circle be Unbroken.

Gemini Full Strawberry Moon, Sun Cancer ~ Summer Solstice!
Mutable Cross, Grand Square ~ Jupiter Trine Pluto!

Monday June 20, 4:02 AM Pacific at 29 Gemini/Sagittarius 33

Full Strawberry Moon

This luscious Full Moon, the second in Gemini, in the last 12 hours and last degree of Gemini, is opening the Gateway to Cancer with a spread of fully enriched data and the wisdom to know what to do with it! Cancer, ever the scholar, is delighted! Full Moon is 4:03 AM Pacific, the Sun enters Cancer 3:34 PM! Happy Summer Solstice!

SECOND Gemini Full Moon! The May 21 Full Flower Blue Moon was at 1 Sagittarius 14. This Full Strawberry Moon is 29 Gemini/Sag 33! In Blue Moon parlance, the current popular definition is the second Full Moon in a month is a Blue Moon. So in astrological parlance (a sign equates roughly to a month), since this is the second Full Moon in the Sign, I’ll call it a Blue Moon too!

The three Gemini Moons each supported an outer planet transit combination!

  • The May 21 first Full Moon, the Flower Blue Moon, brought in Gemini, and Mercury turned forward/direct the next day, and opening the gate before the May 26 last Jupiter square Saturn!
  • The June 4 New Moon opened the new cycle that set up the June 17 second Saturn square Neptune that remains with us until Sep 10. That square precedes this Full Moon by only three days, the square giving its support to the Strawberry Moon!
  • This June 20 Full Strawberry Moon happens just before, the same day the Sun goes into Cancer, and supports the June 26 Jupiter trine Pluto! 

June 17 Saturn Square Neptune was three days ago preceding the Strawberry Moon
xxxx20 Full Strawberry Moon, Happy Cancer and Happy Summer Solstice! It opens the last gate to the last Jupiter trine Pluto.
xxxx26 Jupiter trine Pluto is an empowering combination, that gives Mars strong impetus
xxxx29 Mars turns forward, direct. A few days after the 29th energy will be released, starting a forward momentum.

That’s the potent and complicated backdrop for this Full Moon at 29 degrees, the last degree of a sign. We reach a maximum maturity, last chance, might feel at the end of our rope, a cycle is ending, we are itching to go on! In Gemini there is a sense that our breath is critical. How we breathe, what we choose to pay attention to that entertains our air space. What we choose to breath back out, release. What is ethical, undeniable, must be spoken for our life to line up with our Soul’s commitment. We are at the threshold. The past is the past, choices are made, we go forward even if we don’t choose and not choosing becomes the choice. And so it is. Breathe well.

Moon and Sun are leaving squares to Chiron behind. Chiron is at the point of their T Square. About five days ago Sun challenged Chiron, the healings, teaching, maybe even added to the trouble. One person’s many ideas, confusing and overwhelming. Or they kept up the dialogue until someone finally listened and a breakthrough was made. There was logic versus intuition, possibly words were finally spoken and understanding dawned. Moon followed late yesterday, emotional, fiery, passionately encouraging, wanting us to look ahead, see the potentials for better or worse, just wanting the truth, meaning well. Chiron may have felt overwhelmed by that too, but infinitely glad someone cares even if you can’t get a word in edgewise, LOL! Will think about it.

Mercury, Gemini’s planet, is forming the fourth point of the Mutable Cross, Grand square! It is same degree opposite Saturn, one degree square Neptune, closely square Jupiter!

  • Jupiter is leaving Saturn, but Mercury is inviting a little more thinking about things. Jupiter wanted big and technically excellent. Saturn wanted to build but perhaps not in the expected location. Jupiter is generally trusting, but in Virgo skeptical. Saturn wants the facts, Sag says oh just let’s get on with it, or suggests yet another location – they love to travel! Saturn may be in denial, but Jupiter isn’t about to let that pass. And on around it goes. Now Mercury has heard it all and in one of its own signs, chats it out, brainstorms, possibly getting an unexpected consensus! Or, so much more input will be added, it all goes over the top, each going their separate ways. Forget about it! Huh. But none will be the same as before….
  • Saturn and Neptune will square June 17, coming right up! Mercury is logical, and downright smart in Gemini! It’s the same degree opposite Saturn in Sagittarius! Saturn may listen, though you gotta weave your way through the Sagittarius opinions, dropping hints and ideas here and there. One thing leads to another. Serious Saturn is keen on reality, and Sag loves another good story, so keep dropping those bread crumbs. Take ’em to the show so they can see it for themselves. Saturn might want you to make an appointment, show proper respect. Gemini is youthful and Saturn can be the cool Master. Keep your dignity, or make them laugh in spite of themselves! There’s no way to sneak up on Neptune. They know you’re on the way before you do! At times their intuition will trump your logic. Fine. Other times your fine logic will show them what a fool they have been and they will thank you for it. Sometimes it will seem like they are a confused mush, you could look right through them like glass, and no one is home. How do you talk to that?! If there are addiction issues, that could be true. But don’t confuse that with their waking dreams, or underestimate them or their dreams. They have magic on their side and it usually will prove out. They can be super dedicated Souls. There will be perfect times for each of you to use your talents.

Mars is potently in station, ‘standing still,’ at 23 Scorpio. If we use a 1 degree range for the station, it started June 18, Mars directs, turns forward, June 29, continues within 1 degree until July 12. It inconjuncts Uranus while retrograde June 18 and when direct July 13. This whole period of time will call for wider awareness, and because of that, adjustments. It makes sense to look aside, check out a side trip, pay attention, not let things slip by. We can be dazed by the wild Uranus in Aries, explosive, entertaining, strange and wonderful. Mars in Scorpio often feels invisible and invincible, inordinately curious! Either of them can have a temper. Uranus goes off like firecrackers; Mars in Scorpio smoulders. If you feel the heat rising, leave right now. Backup may be wise. If Uranus is complacent, not their usual venue, it could be a kickstart from Mars is on cue! If they are valuable but scaring people and losing their audience, Scorpio can show them how to hang onto themselves. Maybe one or both of them needs an adventure to spice their life. Can do! Be aware of how others may feel, be ready to take responsibility for any consequences. The ‘friendship’ may be short lived, but never forgotten!

Whatever didn’t happen when Jupiter squared Saturn, and you might even be glad for that,  will more than be made up for by Jupiter trine Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s sign, June 26! This will be their last of three trines, so make the very, very best of it! This is MEGA SUPER TRINE! It’s known as a wealth aspect, great for healing! Jupiter itself is considered fame and fortune in old time astrology. In Virgo it can be for writers, any kinds of daily services from nursing to bookkeeping, pet care, landscaping, housekeeping, etc. Jupiter is publishing. Get your blog going. Travel can be for healthcare seminars. Pluto wants healing, Capricorn rules careers and elders. Building and real estate. Pluto rules all kinds of major monies – inheritance, banking, loans, grants, insurance. CEOs, corporations. Think big! See more!

The Full Moon Gemini Sun is in close longitude with Polaris, the Pole star, 28 GE 34! Polaris is at the north pole, never sets, stands almost motionless on the sky, and all the stars of the Northern sky appear to rotate around it. Other stars along this circle were the pole star in the past and will be again in the future, including Thuban and Vega. Polaris has been close to the actual position of the north pole for over 1000 years. Polaris has long been an important star to sailors, caravans of old winding their way over the desert by night and others who navigated their way by the stars. It is currently located almost directly overhead as seen from the North Pole.

The planet, Uranus, was discovered one degree longitude away from this star.

According to Ptolemy the bright stars are like Saturn and in some degree like Venus. It is said to give indifference and improvidence of spirit, and to lead to many troubles. By the Kabbalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Tau and the 21st Tarot Trump “The Universe.” The Chinese considered the Pole Star as “the great honorable Lord of the Heavens”. Other races too had high admiration for it, and one can draw the conclusion that, in a relevant position in the natal chart, it will give spiritual powers to the bearer, and he will be highly respected. The Pole Star serves as a guide and indicator. It can give a good sense of discretion and you will be able to follow your instinct, clearly recognize your aims, pursue and achieve them! You may find yourself up all night, at the center of things, the heart of the matter!

Take some time, get out in the Moonlight with a bowl of strawberry ice cream, or not! Smudge and clear, make an offering, give gratitude. Think on your dreams, call on your Guides and Polaris, breathe all the old away, breathe in the new Word! If you are in a group, have Circle and, faces up, let the MoonLight bathe you, run through you all as One! Blessed be. x

New Moon – Cancer Stellium, Sirius opposite Pluto, Grand Water Trine!

Monday July 4, 4:01 AM Pacific at 12 Cancer 54

New Moon Milky Way Lakeside Summer Camping Lighted Tent

It’s SUMMER! Grab family and friends, take the camera and let’s camp under the holy stars!

After our recent intensity of three outer planets aspects March through June, we can take time now to assimilate whatever challenges and joys came our way. Cancer can be broody moody, and that’s just fine. Someone’s got to do it. Think of it as a hen sitting her eggs. No telling what will hatch! We keep the ideas warm and incubating, we stay fertile. People walk by and add to our clutch. Our feelings swirl and another new idea is born! Cancers are masters at germination.

This is our first Moon after the outer planet aspects. These last 28 days Mother Moon has been collecting and storing all the bits from all the signs and culminations of the aspects, letting them roll in the bowl and merge, knitting their own kind of strength. Moon is full in her own way as she meets Father Sun. He enLightens the brew, energizes the union, new beginning are given the vital warmth to emerge!

Our Cancer New Moon is between Mercury and Venus also in Cancer! A four planet stellium plus the fixed star Sirius in Cancer! Mother Moon and Father Sun are snuggling among the pillows, likely canoodling. Spooning is a favorite whether together or sharing the sweetest meal. Children are often the hoped for outcome.

The New Moon is just over a degree approaching the fixed star Sirius at 14 Cancer 05! Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky in Canis Major, has figured prominently in legends all over the world. The Dogstar, aka the Heavenly Wolf by some, is closest to the Earth in Summer, especially July and August and can even be seen in daytime. That’s where the phrase “dog days of summer” came from. The Dogstar is one of the two hunting dogs of the great hunter Orion. Per constellationsofwords.com ‘Well connected, it promises fame, honors and riches, excellent for military, lawyers and civil servants. …in conjunction with the Sun and well placed in the chart will be found to be the case with numerous important and famous personalities. With Moon: Success in business, influential friends of opposite sex, favorable for the father, good health, beneficial changes in home or business.’ Cancers and dogs are noted for their loyalty and their fierce protection of our loved ones. Opposite Pluto, there could be real reasons to double check security at home and business locations. Prevention and mindfulness.

As much as we think of New Moon’s as a dark time, it certainly isn’t for the Moon and Sun! There is nothing but brilliant Light where they are together! Sun bestows his great heart of Light fully, entirely infusing Mama Moon, recharging her. She gives unconditionally, has the huge responsibility to manage the household – all that stuff, and all those dear humans – and needs every bit of that restoration. Father Sun is always giving as big as possible, not just to his own family, but to all! He carries a lot of weight. Mama puts her arms around him and tells him what a true hero he is and just like that, he is recharged too! Happens every 28 days, but in the sign Cancer more emphasis is on Mama Moon in her own sign. The next New Moon will be his turn in Leo, Father Sun’s own sign.

Mercury in Cancer has already been giving it a lot of thought…or should I say feeling?! Where to live, how to support the family, sometimes considering installing mother-in-law quarters, or a place for Grandma and Grandpa to help with the kids. It can be a good investment to keep the elders happy and healthy, to make them know how much they are valued and still able to contribute. Mercury in Cancer’s intuition is fabulous at managing funds. Through its extensive family and community contacts, it knows when to invest, what to invest in, when to hold, and always has the family’s long term needs in mind. There is always a fall back fund that is untouchable. Through those same contacts, business connections can be abundant and there can be multiple income sources.

Mercury at 9 Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces and inconjuncts Saturn in Sagittarius. Neptune is water planet known for it’s intuition. Mercury is logical, more with the facts and data, while Neptune is the dreamer capable of visions that well exceed, transcend, any array of sensibility! Saturn wants to harness the horse and focus on the potential, build the dream step by step, using every bit of data Mercury can dredge up! It won’t always be a comfortable combination. That Saturn and Neptune just squared, a challenge aspect, June 17 for the second time. They will do so again, the last time, September 10. This New Moon will give some insights about how powerfully femininity, women, home & family, culture, feelings, factor in.

Venus in Cancer has a sweet smile and is blessed with an exceptional loving kindness. It can be a little acquisitive, and may be thought of as being selfish sometimes. And that’s likely true too. Gotta take care of yourself. Balance is the key. It’s good to think we are worthy. Good that we model that for our loved ones. Good that we go for the good things in life that in turn will contribute to the happiness of others as well. Venus in Cancer is good in marketing and advertising – art, photography. Historical and old things, geneology, make our story rich, give us an anchor in busy modern life.

Venus makes three exciting aspects!

  • She is separating sextile Jupiter in Virgo. Venus is adorable, attractive in demeanor, seductive at times, highly valued. She loves adornment of all kinds, but in Cancer especially lunar themes, corsets, garments that emphasize her lovely bosom! She loves bed and breakfasts, meals at a sumptuous eatery that feels like home, a snuggly cave-like shelter, likes a camper rather than a camp! Venus makes money, and Jupiter knows just how to manage it to make it more! Percentages are the name of the game. Jupiter wants to teach what Venus does without thinking. Jupiter, now in Virgo, wants to tell the delicious story and bring the nursing department up to par. Together they can give knockout seminars! Traveling in comfort is good as long as the budget stays in line.
  • Grand Water Trine! Venus with Mars in Scorpio and Chiron in Pisces! Spas, nurturing healing. Venus will let go of some of her old collections if it will bring a great price for a good cause. Cleansing, letting go, recycling opens doors to greater earnings, simply enjoying each other’s company! It’s clear there is more to life than the material. Scorpio, though a money sign, is the number one sign of therapists, saves your life, awakens the Kundalini, the fire at the base of your spine, bringing a burning passion that must be lived! Chiron knows well we have our wounds, have struggled and suffered, each in our own way, and has become more compassionate, a true healer and teacher. We aren’t just here solely for ourselves. What affects one affects all. Venus’s love is crucial to the courage it takes to be on and stay with this journey.
    x
    Mars inconjunct Uranus in Aries is not at rest. He’s always twitchy in Scorpio. Scorpio is a darkish place, private, more secretive, behind the scenes power, where Mars’ true nature is so very upfront, tell it like it is right now and let’s get on with it! Uranus in Aries is a lot more like Mars! And Aries is Mars’ sign! Uranus may be strange, but it’s new, a genius on the cutting edge and Mars is a leader! So being invisible and waiting in Scorpio is going to be a challenge. But if revelation becomes important, Mars will be the one to spring it! Mars has seen a lot while rooting around, and some of that stuff needs to be spilled. Scorpio is thought to be the one who cleanses, but Mars burns it out, cauterizes the wound and because it’s clean, it heals fast! Uranus is the community, networks of people, the internet, so with all that potential support, Mars may feel like it can do it now. Get a leg up and go for it! Both Mars and Uranus are split second fast, so adjustments can be made as you go!
  • Venus square Uranus in Aries! Believe me, Venus in Cancer is quite different than Uranus in Aries! If she’s bored, she will love it, design and put up the posters, revel in the blast into the future from right when she walks in the door! If she’s afraid, it might take some doing to get her to that party! She may be glad another is leading the good fight and gently lend her energy along the sidelines serving a healthy meal that looks good and tastes good too! If conservative, she may be shocked. Unable to unsee what she saw, she is changed. It may take some time, but she will think on it and find a better way. Some of what happens may be a now or never situation. The aspect isn’t exact until July 7 at 7:24 AM Pacific. I would err to the cautious side. Make test investments; see how it goes over a longer time.

Moon and Sun are at 12 degrees sextile Jupiter 17 Virgo and opposite Pluto 16 Capricorn.

Cancer is a forever scholar sign. Jupiter is college level learning. Virgo loves manuals. The sextile aspect is opportunity type connections, in this case Cancer to Virgo. Cancer is the nurturer, Virgo the caregiver. Growing and learning are happy companions. Making sure people have what they need to learn, that the learning system really works, that there is funding to take care of things, and that there is a safe place to learn, are important. Jupiter and Pluto recently trined. Perhaps some doors were opened for funding options that hadn’t been available before. If the system is too old, reasonable upgrades can be made now. Stay with it and follow through. Perhaps a property purchase is in the offing, a career adjustment or location change. Retirement. There could be an application to change some laws that we have outgrown. Time to let go, reach out, rebuild. Mercury and Sun both complete the opposition July 7, 4:54 AM (essentially on the do business daytime of the 6th) and 3:24 PM Pacific respectively. With those and the Venus square Uranus also the 7th, the 7th brings the culmination of some important considerations. 

This New Moon is sweet but with a little bit of bite too!x

Full Buck Moon! – Uranian T Square Inconjunct Mars Links to Grand Water Trine!

Tuesday July 19, 3:56 PM Pacific at 27 Cancer/Capricorn 40

Full Moon Lake Tahoe CA Summer Pine Trees Rocks

Beautiful Lake Tahoe CA Full Moonset by dedicated photographer Mark Larrea!

Cancer and Capricorn both know the importance and strength of the foundation of the sacred Past, and who better to carry the energy forward?! They both recently made a T Square with Uranus, Uranus at the T point. First is the Sun July 16 at 6:31 AM Pacific, then Moon, just before the Full Moon, reminding us, at 10:06 AM Pacific. Change is befalling us and activating growth from and to many directions! Sometimes we underestimate our friends that carry awakening to the future, but often the greatest inventions and discoveries are made when we take that one step beyond our Past, out of the box! Welcome the blessing.

Mars too made an aspect with Uranus, in fact, due to Mars having been retrograde, it has been in a prolonged inconjunct, allowing a 3 degree range, since June 6. The very first inconjunct was way back on Feb 5, but this one is more significant because it is when Mars makes it station direct, turns forward. The second aspect, during Mars retrograde, was June 18, the day after the second Saturn square Neptune. It carries that energy with it to the present time. The inconjunct was continuous within less than 1 degree through its third and final aspect July 13 at 10:16 PM Pacific. It’s still close. A lot of awareness will be triggered. Stay alert to your surroundings. Make wise ongoing adjustments. Some will be slow and reluctant, others in the fraction of a moment!

Though inconjuncts are askew and sometimes take us temporarily off track. Even if uncomfortable, we see new things that open our consciousness. These two planets have kinship. Mars is the current ruler, planet associated with Aries, the sign Uranus is in now. Mars is currently in Scorpio, the sign Mars also used to rule. Both are warrior signs, Aries the front line fighter, with the courage of the first responder fighting fires; Scorpio is the ninja therapist midnight requisition specialist, that saves the day in the dark, from behind and within. Sneaky devil, but ever so potent, revelation on the way. Kundalini and resurrection go hand in hand. Sex is great or not at all! Uranus is a lot kinky, unusual/exceptional to say the least, electric and proud of it! So sometimes we don’t have a clue what’s going on; other times it’s all in our face! Ha! Great to be alive! Unpredictable but definitely on course!

Grand Water Trine! Sun trined Mars July 16 at 8:45 PM Pacific after Sun squared Uranus in the wee hours of the morning. What built up all week long to a possibly unsettling 14th, 15th, gets quickly integrated and swiftly taken care of the 16th! Act on what’s in your heart to do! Sun and Mars are both physical, even in water signs! Take a good swim, snorkel, paddle! Get your molecules humming! Maybe get with someone you love! Then alternate a great hot bath/spa, cold shower routine! Refreshing and exhilarating!

Mars completes the Grand Water Trine! He is sure there is potential because he just had a healthy consult with Chiron in Pisces July 17 at 4:42 AM Pacific (essentially the 16th also). Where there’s a will there’s a way! Scorpio is shrewd, and Chiron in Pisces is insightful beyond measure, together clever! Both have an eye to business, and if there is a healing spiritual component to the enterprise, even better. Mars encourages Chiron to trust himself, instead of stewing, stewarding! Chiron has Mars somewhat at his mercy because he sees the obsessions that hold him prisoner in Scorpio. Chiron sees the potential when freed. Mars is potently in station, about to turn forward, direct, in only 10 days on June 29. It will be a slow restart, but strong. It will clear the conduit to core molten purity. It will be steeped in corrective process, focused on a wellspring of power to release the old, develop what’s innovative.

Moon sextiles Mars just 4 juicy hours before the Full Moon at 12:12 PM Pacific. Moon in Capricorn can seem stone cold, but you can bet there will be a realistic appraisal. If merited, you will get a golden report, your efforts well noted. Capricorn knows hard good work when it sees it and respectfully gives honor. The Mars/Capricorn combination could still be a little testy even though sextiles indicate opportunities, because Capricorn is the father figure/boss, and Mars, especially in Scorpio, prefers not being told what to do and dislikes scrutiny of their private doings, what they do and how and when they do it. Better if Capricorn hires Mars as an independent doing piece work. Mars gives powerfully. He is always inspirational in some regard, sparks the ignition, an initiation. If Moon in Cap has relied on their previous standing, Mars may shrewdly surreptitiously suggest they stand taller, make a bigger sweep, do some inventive research, upgrade, add some new juice!

What a powerful backdrop this Full Moon has!

Cancer and Capricorn are guardians of the hearth, and make sure we have shelter to raise our young. There is no more sacred duty of procreation than to give new beings the opportunity to carry the Light in a good way. Cancer holds the babies with love. Capricorn shows them how to professionally serve their community, take their place in the world in a good way. These signs hold fast the basic tenets of our lives. Full Moons invite us to open our hearts, spread our wings as wide as we can, embrace the potential in ourselves and others.

This Full Moon is the culminating aspect while the Moon is in Capricorn, then the Moon starts what we astrologers call VC, Void of Course. That’s like a free zone. Nothing comes of some things started in that corridor until the moon changes signs. That will be from 3:56 PM to until the Moon enters Aquarius 8:10 PM Pacific. Others speculate there is nothing to stop us. Could be a good time to simply consider things, let your Spirit meander. Blessed be.

Orlando Shooting 2016 Astrology Chart Shots Fired

We have been having alot of outer planet connections! Astrology is complex, so how do we predict events? Especially if we don’t know the charts of persons whose charts connect with those events. And there are so many humans.

This chart of June 12, 2016 at the time of first shots fired, 2:02 AM Eastern, gives many indications. Some charts give little indication, being more in connection with the person’s chart. Most events are a combination of both.

I had been expecting something sad in this time frame because the Saturn square Neptune was the primary aspect at the time of the Nov 13, 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris 17 days before the Paris climate talks. 130 people were killed in Paris. There was so much grief around the world. Many people felt devastated, hopeless. The outdoor Climate Rally was cancelled after the bombings, so people put their shoes there, including Pope Francis, UN General Secretary Ban Ki Moon and Marion Cotillard. Saturn squares Neptune the second time June 17, only 5 days after the Orlando shooting. It is the primary aspect of this event as well. The planets will square the third and last time Sept 10, the day after Jupiter enters Libra Sept 9.

To me, this Orlando gay nightclub attack was so very sad because it was on vulnerable people who already have difficult lives struggling for safety, the love of their families, dignity, equality. Saturn wants to bring respect and order out of Neptune chaos and obscurity, get over denial. And there are times when after working hard, it’s good to just let your hair down, or just have fun on the weekend! This is so sad after last year’s right to marriage was won after so many long years.

Moon and Sun are always elemental key factors and they were square, at 90 degree odds from Moon in Virgo to Sun in Gemini. Though ordinarily a challenging square between them would be super emotional, Virgo and Gemini, both Mercury signs, are more logical. Omar Mateen, the gunman, was said to be utterly “cool and calm” expressing his sentiments while he talked by phone to law enforcement officials.

Mercury itself is at 29 Taurus, within a degree of the current position of the Pleiades, its central star, fixed star Alcyone at 0 Gemini. The Pleiades are the 7 sisters. In some traditional horary astrology they were called the weeping sisters and 29 Taurus indicated something to weep about, at worst, mass suicide. 29 is the last degree of any sign, a maturity, an ending, a finality. It can also be at the end of one’s rope. Something had to give. The 7 Sisters were also thought to have to do with homosexuality.

The Sun was with Venus, one who values himself, sometimes above others. Venus at 23 degrees Gemini was exact sextile, a harmonious aspect, with Uranus at 23 Aries. Uranus ranges from genius to insanity, and in Aries is proactive and generally unpredictable and fast at it. Mars has been coming retrograde, reawakening past passions, closer and closer to the opposite midpoint between them in Scorpio. Scorpio loves the night and stealth, is a planet of death as well as healing. The three form a Yod, a Y, with Mars of war at its point, the emphasis.

Since Mars is retrograde and close to its turning forward point, it is in station, holding this chafing inconjunct with Uranus for 37+ days. The very first inconjunct was way back on Feb 5. Now, allowing a 3 degree range, it started toward the second one on June 6, and will make the second exact aspect June 18, the day after the second Saturn square Neptune. The inconjunct is continuous within less than 1 degree through its third and final aspect July 13 at 10:16 PM Pacific. There’s no let up. A lot of awareness will be triggered. Stay alert to your surroundings. Make wise ongoing adjustments. Some will be slow and reluctant, others in the fraction of a moment!

Mars is bullets and triggers, a declaration of independence, fury. In Scorpio, what could be the compassionate therapist, can also be a dark killer with no mercy. Flavored by Uranus, an air planet, there can be a freedom from conscience, a loner, a radical and shocking situation. Uranus in Mars’s sign Aries can give a sense of being free to act as compelled. This Mars at 25 Scorpio was retrograding slowly, almost at its stand still station turning point it would form at 23 Scorpio. It was within one degree of Omar’s birth chart 24 Scorpio Sun and holding focus on the square to Omar’s Mars at 23 Aquarius. This echoes the Mars inconjunct Uranus, Uranus being the Aquarian planet. His intense violence is no surprise.

Scorpio Stellium Orlando Shooter Omar Mateen
[Mateen’s birthtime is unknown. This chart is calculated for midday (noon) and 0 Aries Ascendant used. Since we don’t have a time of birth, the Moon’s degree can be ± 6+ degrees of the position in this chart. That means it could be in Taurus or Gemini. I think it is in Taurus, possibly closer to the fixed star Alcyone degree in the Pleiades that Mercury was at in the sky June 12.]

He had a 4 planet stellium in Scorpio, one of those planets being Pluto, Scorpio’s own planet. Venus one degree of Pluto can have no fear of death, consider it a blessing, the right thing to happen, even a mercy killing. Venus and Mercury both retrograde considered what to do over and over again, a true obsessive/compulsive taking things to the extreme.

The June 12 Moon in Virgo was also coming to inconjunct Uranus. Virgo is more calculating than helpful sometimes. With Uranus in Aries it could be technical support. Uranus of fame to the masses is the point planet in this second Yod. In Aries, action and leadership, it is a force to be reckoned with. Mars at the other Yod point in Scorpio quietly but powerfully at the other side of the chart, confirms and it happens.

Saturn square Neptune was preceded by a 3 months long Jupiter square Saturn. To Mateen’s thinking, all that is holy in Saturn, the Law, spiritual law, was challenged by, perhaps even laughed or scoffed at, disappointed by Jupiter. Jupiter is confident and good natured while Saturn is official, serious, less fun or funny, susceptible to being made to look the fool. As any good Saturnian knows, sometimes you just have to wait it out to see who’s right, which has the staying power it takes. But if you feel violated and hopeless long enough…. Both squares have ethical issues from traditional law, to the opinionated newly converted true believer, to those who haven’t a clue and could care less. Saturn, the traditionalist, may see the world crumbling around them, be deeply angered by law breakers and besmirchers, wants to make its mark, so takes the law into his own hands – a rogue and vigilante defender. Omar Mateen was right in his Saturn Return at 29 years old. Saturn is in his chart at 10 degrees Sagittarius; Saturn June 12 was at 12 degrees retrograding back to 9 degrees, making a long station on his Saturn. He felt strong and pure in his convictions. Long term aspects like this build up, sometimes to a breaking point. Sometimes they are tired, other times they are tireless and determined.

Jupiter trine Pluto can be super healing, untold wealth, or mass murder. Jupiter in Virgo is careful and organized. Pluto in Capricorn is deadly clever, focused, may be a paid assassin. Jupiter is lucky, and in the hands of harm, succeeds at that too. It took officials 3 hours to stop Omar Mateen.

The moment the chart Ascendant hit 0 Aries, the Vertex, a point of Fate, came to 0 Libra, exactly opposite, the axes precisely overlaying each other. Libra is the sign of war and Peace, and this time, with the Aries war god sign at the Ascendant, it was war. As the time came to the first degree of the first sign, the warrior and guns, the first shots were fired. Fate struck. From one side, Justice was sought. From the other, relationships were non negotiably ended, rendered heartbroken through a sorrowful lack of equality. 50 dead, more than that injured, the worst mass shooting in American history.

Aries is also blood, and there was a lot lost. Aries is also the sign of heroes. Good people lined up for blocks to donate blood when the call went out. Blood banks received such an overwhelming response that they asked donors to come back over the next several days. So many are outpouring their loving support, in this case literally giving of themselves, restoring balance as they can. Zero degrees also indicates new beginnings, and through blood shared, a mingling, a fusion, bonding of a kind, perhaps a deeper understanding, is occurring. The healing has begun.

Orlando Blood Bank Donors Mass Shooting

This event has further serious implications. For the injured and the families of those lost, it will irrevocably change their lives. Though a majority may vote for legalized unions, there are still those who have fear and hate, extremism. Gun laws will be further questioned and fought about. Consensus is a long way off. There is no doubt it will affect the candidacies and elections.

May the Spirits of those lost rest in Peace. We shall overcome; your lives have not been in vain.

Please stay true, be safe, keep learning, keep teaching, keep your courage, be more gentle in our differences. Give your comfort and support as you can. The world needs us to stay strong and steady in the Light, especially at times like this.



Please
be reassured that if you or a loved one or someone you know has any of the above aspects either in your or their birth charts or have transits like these happening to your birth charts, it does not mean you will do or have these things done to you. We are all complex and it takes a lot of factors to push us beyond social reason. In fact, the same aspects of pain for one person can call forth the healer in another. We are humans at different stages of growth, perhaps young Soul, old Soul. The pain in one is sorrow for us all.

In spite of suffering and difficulty, we learn from tragedy. Astrologically we learn to see warning points. We all become more alert and aware, more compassionate. We renew our efforts to help others, and be better people.

Full Flower Blue Moon – Buddha’s Birthday, Wesak, Jupiter Square Saturn

Saturday May 21 at 2:14 PM Pacific, 1 Gemini/Sagittarius 14

Full Flower Moon Wesak 2016 Mount Shasta

Exquisite image fitting for Buddha’s Birthday by Karrie Ann of Living Shasta Photography

The date for Wesak, Buddha’s Birthday celebration, depends on which Lunar Calendar you use.

Mercury is Retrograde

May 20 Happy Gemini! This is the Wesak date for most of SE Asia.
May 21 Wesak in INDIA is on the Full Moon 2:14 PM Pacific, 1 Sagittarius 14.

May 22 Mercury turns Direct at 6:20 AM Pacific

Since it falls on a weekend this year, many, including the Mount Shasta group, will hold weekend meditations, have special teachers, ceremony and celebrations. Wherever you are going, get your reservations made right away.

The Sun Gemini, Moon Sagittarius axis deftly handles information gathered community wide, especially from women, and with a handshake across the table incorporates it with a bigger array, community to community! Brainstorming sessions will pay off. The neighborhood scanner Gemini mind is a font of knowledge and past life traveler; Sagittarius the Seeker, loves its meaning and purpose. They spread the good word to as many as possible as far as they can get! Gemini does great newsworthy blogs while Sagittarius teaches and publishes. Gemini is more neutral, while Sag takes it to Church. Together they cover from here to there!

Moon is meeting retrograde Mars in Sagittarius coming back to greet her. For an hour and a half after the Full Moon, they are going to tell great stories! BIG stories, many chapters! Record them for sparking more conversations later. Or. There is going to be some potent interaction, whether it is high with provocative emotion, truth or lies, anger, sex, exercise, accidental, or all of the above! Just be a little careful, ok? Protected sex, be safe, not isolated. One way or the other, it could be inspiring, even if you don’t like it! Some cleanup may be called for.

Mars is headed to its retrograde opposition Sun the next day, May 22 at 4:17 AM Pacific. Essentially the action is on the 21st since it happens so early the 22nd. This opposition always happens when Mars retrogrades. It is at the midpoint between the Rx turn to the Direct turn. Both Mars and Sun are fire planets and in frolicsome signs, be careful not to rush things, be too quick – unwatchful, overdo the exercise, ignore personal intimate protection. Anger, taking a dare, being macho may not pay off. But you may find yourself standing up now when you should have a long time ago! Yes! Doing something new may free your Spirit! Wild sex in the street may make you feel spicy for a long time! :) But remember the warning, no first time sex with someone during Mars Rx. If your desire changes after Mars goes direct, fine. There could be a different Initiation that honors a longing of your Soul.

6:20 AM Pacific the next day, Mercury in Taurus directs, turns forward, ends its retrograde! That means it has been in station, appearing to stand still, since the 18/19th and will continue to until the 25th, a standard 8 day period. What is focused on during those days is well thought out, becomes a part of us, is long held, especially in Taurus. Fertile Taurus seeks a true value. It is patient and sits with it until the living part of it is acquired. Taurus is our bodies; we need to establish a connection, touch. Mercury, mind and hands, is here to do that. Taurus is beauty of all and any kind, grace. It rules the land and land works, the foods we grow on the land, the trees that filter our air. Taurus is gentle, yet super powerful. They usually don’t yell on soapboxes, but they are often long time entertainers, and most certainly are earth movers. It just gets done. If you put your mind (Mercury) to it, what seems impossible, inch by inch, comes to pass.

This is our third Moon with a Grand Earth Trine – Mercury, Jupiter, Pluto! Again, Mercury is retrograde turns direct the day after our Full Moon! It has gone back as far as it is going to, just missing the trine with Jupiter. Jupiter is retrograding away from the trine with Pluto. So, we think about what we could do, but contracts are not signed. We are enlivened, see the details, how it could be, yet it still isn’t the time yet. We carry the ideas with us, and they help shape our intentions, enhance our chances. If the combinations with your chart are good in late June, the ideas will be there ready to fulfill when that Jupiter Pluto trine is made exactly June 26!

5 Days after our Full Moon, Jupiter in Virgo squares Saturn in Sagittarius May 26!

The important core long term outer planet aspect is the Jupiter square Saturn we have been having continuously since they started being close together within 5 degrees Feb 20. There are only two of these aspects. The first exact one was March 23rd. The last of the two is exact May 26, only 5 days after our Full Flower Moon! It fades away to 3 degrees apart by June 15.

Jupiter went direct, forward May 9, only three hours before the TRANSIT of MERCURY! It is now carrying the Message of Light of the TRANSIT of MERCURY, the solar infusion Eclipse of the Sun!

Jupiter expands limitlessly! Saturn archives important information, condenses and sets boundaries. In Sagittarius, Jupiter’s sign, Saturn assigns tasks to get the information out in a timely fashion, keeping the information unbiased, clean and true as possible. Jupiter motivates; Saturn protects his commitment like a mountain fortress. Jupiter in Virgo sorts the bits, realizing some are more important than thought to be when first encountered. Saturn in Sagittarius carefully weighs the new perspective, shrewdly prioritizing.

Personally there may be surprising agreements! In Virgo, Jupiter’s ideas are well backed by the results of practical application and often a bit of research. Saturn is more willing than usual to expand step by step in sensible terms, on a well scheduled program. Things can be fixed, integrated, along the way, assuring a strong foundation. Both are optimistic to an extent. A challenge might be to take on only what you realistically can. Jupiter in Virgo is lucky at assessing health concerns, and Saturn in Sag wants a good life plan for long term well being. Diet, exercise, checking on what you have avoided, insurances and healthy housing go with the territory. There may be breakdowns or breakthroughs. Usually both will call for more funds, so be thrifty now to cover what comes up later. See more!

Two Fixed Stars – Algol and Alcyone! Venus is in one of its signs, Taurus. It just passed Algol May 20 at 26 TA 10. Algol brings dramatic statements. It was thought to be the most evil star in the heavens! If you aren’t dead by decapitation you can be a great artist! It is symbolic of losing your head, and that can be by alcoholism, brainwashing, loss of memory or pain, even by so having so much fun you forget yourself, as well as other means! Of course, modern writers and observers are clear that people born at 26 TA live and that day each year is not noted! Algol blinks and disappears 8 hours at a time because it is a binary star, eclipsing itself every 3 days! Pretty unique, and considered a star of transformation. One writer says, ‘…if you dabble in shamanism it can kill you or enlighten you.’ Johnny Depp and his wife both have Venus with Algol, thought by some to have magnetic beauty!

May 20 the Sun just passed and, only 2+ hours before, the Moon just opposed Alcyone 00 GE 00 in 2000. It is the central star of the Pleiades, also called the Weeping Sisters, in other words, something to weep about. “Sickness, disgrace, evil disposition (used to be a term in astrology for homosexuality), murderer or murdered, imprisonment, death by blows, stabs, shooting, beheading or shipwreck..” “The ruthless visionary, a passionate but potentially arrogant person.” The Pleiades, as the daughters of Atlas, who carried the world, Alcyone points to dealing with burdensome matters of weight. While it was in Taurus it was material concerns, substance. Now in Gemini, there are concerns about our intellect, how we think, communicate, our breath of life, connections with the world – political, climate change, the Internet.

If you don’t have your chart, get a free one at Astro.com. Stars move forward through the zodiac at one degree every 72 years. You can find all the star positions here: The Fixed Stars in Longitude Order. Use the long 2000 column for current positions.

Both of these fixed star aspects having just passed still carry possible serious considerations. Perhaps you are going to be more careful, conscientious, attentive. Maybe there are some things to be faced or said, done. It may be uncomfortable, but don’t miss your window. Be loving.

This is a seasonal Blue Moon. It is derived from the older definition of the term – the third of four full moons in a season, this one between the March equinox and the June solstice of 2016.

Full Moons reach out, open doors and gateways.

New Moon – 14 Degree 6 Planet Mutable Cross/Grand Square, Saturn Square Neptune

Saturday June 4, 7:59 PM Pacific at 14 Gemini 53

Meteor Shower Denver

The Metropolis, a grid of earth lights below, echoing the skyways, the Milky Way,  and, in this case, Meteors over Denver – connections to everywhere!

Gemini has this supreme urge to communicate anytime, anywhere, with anyone! It can be microscopic, holding hands with your sweetheart, to extraterrestrial contact with magnificent stars, comets, meteors, beings ~ it’s being infused, imprinted with galaxies of knowledge from times far, far away. Dark New Moon nights are perfect.

Mercury is no longer retrograde, but will finish its Phase 3, tidying up in Taurus, June 7. Only a few short days to go! Bodily matters will be more peaceful, possessions will settle, snafus will untangle and relax, monies have potential after all! June 3, the day before our New Moon, Mercury crosses the TRANSIT of MERCURY, ECLIPSE of the Sun degree the last time, this time going forward. We’ve been thinking about things, and this is a reminder to carry the Eclipse message forward. That cycle is ending as well as the Moon ending her 27 day cycle, merging with Father Sun. Crossing the Transit degree reminds us of our Eclipse exchange, the infusion by Father Sun, the Message. The Moon in Gemini, Mercury’s sign, fully absorbs the upgrade, intuitively getting even more through the lunar conduit. The thread continues, opens the doors to an extended range, another cycle.

Gemini is an information gathering time, and it’s coming from every direction! The Moon and Sun are with Venus! This threesome holds the fourth point with three outer planets in a T Square, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune, forming a Mutable Cross, Grand Square! We have six planets spread through Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces! Balancing, charging and changing, the Four Directions, a lot to consider, many options to coordinate! Stay Steady in the Light in the Center. Breathe.

  • Gemini has Venus, Moon and Sun at the SAME degree, 14! Venus is things we want, beauty and adornment, love. Coming from Taurus, it is more concerned with our bodies and now sculpting our minds, our words to attract what’s organically the best for us. The Moon loves her food, and finger foods rule in Gemini! There are things to do, places to go and we’re on the move! She feeds our mind with memories and intuitions, Mothers’ magic, woman power, knows the public pulse, business cycles! The Sunbeams give us Light and hope, lead the way to meet many, share maximum, spread the good word heart to heart!
  • These New Moon three are with the Fixed Star Rigel, at 16 Gemini 50! Rigel is in the constellation Orion, a double star, the 7th brightest in the sky. Rigel has mixed reviews ranging from splendor and honors, a strong and dignified nature, self-confidence, to inconstancy, arrogance, violence, impiety. It offers prosperity in trade and particularly by voyages or abroad, but danger of treachery and poison.It’s said if Rigel is conjunct with the Sun, Moon, as it is here, MC or Ascendant, a quick rise in life is promised on account of a strong, inherent willpower, love of action, and a lucky hand in enterprise, but a continuous battle to retain an acquired position has to be waged. Ironically, this fight at the same time stimulates an increase in vigor. Even in spite of unhelpful aspects, success and reaching the set aim can be secured by this powerful concentration. If however the native is not cautious or has an attack of weakness, failure and disappointments, a fall from success will follow. Be careful and hang onto your socks!
  • Virgo has Jupiter also at degree 14! That’s four planets at the 14th degree, tight and tasty! Jupiter wants the meaning of all that data Gemini has gathered. It wants to give it a direction, a purpose. In Virgo it places the details, the juicy components in consummate order, a system that flows like a beautiful river, with each valuable piece in the most useful position. The North Node is retrograding to meet Jupiter. The North is ascending beyond its old footing, no finer companion to explore with than Jupiter the traveler. Together they will do training and teach life saving methods of good work and great health. They get a little twitted at times, nervous about whether it will all work out, Jupiter sometimes exaggerating his fears, but that same exaggeration is the backside of unquenchable hope and optimism, expansive thinking! It’s doable!
  • Saturn is holding the fort in Sagittarius. You know how it’s sometimes like herding kittens, well Sag is famous for seeking greener grass, a whole lot of fun, and simply enjoys the trip, anywhere! Saturn says ok that’s fine long as we finish this job so we can pay for the trip! Aw, ok, I know, we said we would. What’s next? Bring me that book so I can look up the specs. So Saturn is the time keeper, inspector, build-it-right, responsible one who keeps everyone on task. He knows he can’t keep ’em corralled forever, so tailors the parts to suit the worker, and, hallelujah, it gets done on time even! Great job, well done on everyone’s part!
  • Neptune in Pisces is the dreamer, wants to save the world, or their part of it, if possible. If nothing, they want to make some contribution that makes a difference. If they are working on that particular project, they are on board and even a whimsical Pisces will focus right up and add astonishing insights, saving time right and left! They often know good resources, contacts that will donate to the cause. Don’t expect them to ‘follow orders,’ wisely allow time outs. They can look tough, but know that there is a sensitive Soul in there. Respect them or you may have a consequence later. Ask and really listen. Just because they don’t speak firmly doesn’t mean they don’t mean it or it’s not valuable. Their input is priceless.
  • Back to Gemini. Walkie Talkie! Talking too much may dilute the message or drop down to chit chat. Keep your priorities and pay attention when people glaze over. Take a break and rethink your priorities, stick to ’em. Ask what’s needed next then go get the info. Do some marketing, get the word out! Connect people with like minds and that have info the other needs, then blitz off to the next good source! Get the blog up and running. Take it easy on those Virgos. Once they start working, more talk distracts and slows them down. Just check to be sure they are on course. Give Sagittarians enough to chew on. If they don’t take you seriously, ask them what would make the difference to them. Neptunians won’t parrot back to you. They listen more to the feel of things and often come back with non sequiturs that you triggered. Trust that. They are connected in some subtle way….

Mercury, Gemini’s planet, is leaving a Grand Trine in Earth. He almost trined Jupiter, got the closest possible when he turned direct May 22. Good luck, some kind of fame or fortune was just a finger’s length away, could smell it! But nope, didn’t quite happen. But, did make the trine to Pluto the 30th, Memorial Day. Some powerful insight occurred, a contract was signed, a lucrative connection made, healing words spoken, a secret or confidence shared. These may bloom to full understanding as we carry them to and sit with them at the New Moon, new words, new beginnings.

In a different degree set, Mercury sextiles Chiron June 8. Mars is retrograding back to oppose Mercury in Taurus June 9, trine Chiron in Pisces June 12, then inconjunct Uranus in Aries June 18.  Going to be lively!

  • Mercury gets the dialogue going with Chiron. There may be some reminiscing, or a sense of communion. This more patient and commiserating connection will ease the way for Mars opposite Mercury when sparks could fly. But Mars knows some things must be said and encourages Mercury who may have been patient way too long in Taurus.
  • Mars in Scorpio retrograde opposite Mercury in Taurus June 9 could be Vesuvius! Mars has had secret things accumulating, being restimulated, possibly even from the past. Important things. Private relationship matters, sexual, financial power plays, fears of death, fears of life! They can be perpetrator or defender, healer. Mercury in Taurus can be maddenly slow, on purpose or just naturally, or so patient, thankfully calming. They have a strong mind and are hard to push off their spot. Common sense is your best ally. Let them know what’s in it for them that is good for everybody. They may shift then. Know there will be 180 differences. See the values in both sides.Don’t push so hard that people dig in their heels. Both Scorpio and Taurus are fixed signs. Even though Mars may look like a whirlwind circling, don’t be fooled that they may change. That might just show you they could be nervous, need to be talked down. No condescending. At times Mars can bully, by scaring you with his speed. Speed does not necessarily indicate change either. Take it easy. Think about what can be useful that each has to offer without changing anyone! Chiron is in good position to heal the situation since it trines Mars and sextiles Mercury. Look to a third party to see things through.
  • In the retrograde degrees, Mars trines Chiron while retrograde June 12, and while going forward July 17. Mars in Scorpio will stir Chiron’s cauldron. It’s looking for the keys to healing, to open the threshold to advanced teachings, awaken the Kundalini, know the meaning of life itself. Security, prevention and protection from harm, will be sought and succeeds. Invincibility has limits, whether a more clever foe or simply old age. Clean up, take good care of yourself. See the best therapist. Offer to volunteer, make amends as needed to make good relationships. Be honest in business dealings, no cheating, no manipulating. Seek common goals helpful to all concerned. Set July 17 as a marker for this particular work.
  • Mars inconjuncts Uranus twice in the retrograde degrees, June 18 and July 13. Mars is the planet of Aries, so these two have a spunky link! Mars is the leader, initiator, first one, fighter, defender! He is spontaneous, is the amazing first responder fireman, ambulance medic, 100% on-the-spot intuition! Uranus loves that in-the-moment speed and intelligence! Scorpio is a tad intense, but that suits them all! Uranus loves different and being on the cutting edge. He’s surprised he can be surprised! It may not be a lasting encounter, but is distracting from the usual humdrum and definitely entertaining and enlivening! Mars takes a swipe, and is amazed that Uranus dodges him so easily. Uranus is usually the one who shocks people, so he wakes up too. That was close; he’s not quite as untouchable as he thought! Each is slightly askew, the right place to consider new facets of current events!

In 13 days, Saturn will square Neptune for the 2nd time. This aspect is important because of its long duration. It ran seven months in 2015 at two different times, and will a third period in 2016 for 6+ months. In 2016, it runs from April 13 to Oct 31, with second exact aspect June 17 at 12 Sag, and the final aspect Sep 10 at 10 Sag.

At worst, Saturn in Sagittarius, holds his opinion as law, shutting down any intuitive responses of Neptune. However, Neptune is in his own sign Pisces, doubly potent, can’t be quelled forever. Saturn says that psychic stuff is ridiculous, of course. At best, perhaps, Saturn teaches people who suffer addictions how to get back into the world, giving them realistic examples of successes that are stable, giving them tasks to show them they can do it too! There may be processing of profound griefs along the way. Or, Saturn himself loses faith and it takes the gentle Piscean compassion to understand and reconnect his Spirit. Saturn may have traveled far, variously abandoning himself, others, all his seeking fallen short, to find himself collapsed at Neptune’s feet, ready to hear a truth that was always there. Neptune may say a few words that unlock the Gate of Fears and Saturn walks through the Fire free!

Saturn is always the Builder, looking to the long term. It may be mind, it may be matter. It may be the Temple of Wisdom, or carrying the nomad coals of light. In Sagittarius he is divine protector of knowledge. Pisces is the spiritual seeker, dreamer, intuitive, believer without proof. The spiritual tides wash away karmic debris, soften edges, reduce resistance. Saturn helps collect the ideas, give them focus, bring them to a consortium of useful existence. Neptune inspires; Saturn gives them a home. See more

Gemini is the Breath, the Word of God, since Mercury, Gemini’s planet, always travels closely with the Sun. Venus conjunct both Sun and Moon is giving her blessing and grace.

Full Strawberry Moon, Sun Cancer ~ Summer Solstice!
Mutable Cross, Grand Square ~ Jupiter Trine Pluto!

Monday June 20, 4:02 AM Pacific at 29 Gemini/Sagittarius 33

Full Strawberry Moon

This luscious Full Moon, the second in Gemini, in the last 12 hours and last degree of Gemini, is opening the Gateway to Cancer with a spread of fully enriched data and the wisdom to know what to do with it! Cancer, ever the scholar, is delighted! Full Moon is 4:03 AM Pacific, the Sun enters Cancer 3:34 PM! Happy Summer Solstice!

SECOND Gemini Full Moon! The May 21 Full Flower Blue Moon was at 1 Sagittarius 14. This Full Strawberry Moon is 29 Gemini/Sag 33! In Blue Moon parlance, the current popular definition is the second Full Moon in a month is a Blue Moon. So in astrological parlance (a sign equates roughly to a month), since this is the second Full Moon in the Sign, I’ll call it a Blue Moon too!

The three Gemini Moons each support an outer planet transit combination!

  • The May 21 first Full Moon, the Flower Blue Moon, brings in Gemini, and Mercury turns forward/direct the next day, and opening the gate before the May 26 last Jupiter square Saturn!
  • The June 4 New Moon opens the new cycle that sets up the June 17 second Saturn square Neptune that remains with us until Sep 10. That square precedes this Full Moon by only three days, the square giving its support to the Strawberry Moon!
  • This June 20 Full Strawberry Moon supports the June 26 Jupiter trine Pluto! 

June 17 Saturn Square Neptune is three days preceding the Strawberry Moon
xxxx20 Full Strawberry Moon, Happy Cancer and Happy Summer Solstice! It opens the last gate to the last Jupiter trine Pluto.
xxxx26 Jupiter trine Pluto is an empowering combination, that gives Mars strong impetus
xxxx29 Mars turns forward, direct

That’s the potent and complicated backdrop for this Full Moon at 29 degrees, the last degree of a sign. We reach a maximum maturity, last chance, might feel at the end of our rope, a cycle is ending, we are itching to go on! In Gemini there is a sense that our breath is critical. How we breathe, what we choose to pay attention to that entertains our air space. What we choose to breath back out, release. What is ethical, undeniable, must be spoken for our life to line up with our Soul’s commitment. We are at the threshold. The past is the past, choices are made, we go forward even if we don’t choose and not choosing becomes the choice. And so it is. Breathe well.

Moon and Sun are leaving squares to Chiron behind. Chiron is at the point of their T Square. About five days ago Sun challenged Chiron, the healings, teaching, maybe even added to the trouble. One person’s many ideas, confusing and overwhelming. Or they kept up the dialogue until someone finally listened and a breakthrough was made. There was logic versus intuition, possibly words were finally spoken and understanding dawned. Moon followed late yesterday, emotional, fiery, passionately encouraging, wanting us to look ahead, see the potentials for better or worse, just wanting the truth, meaning well. Chiron may have felt overwhelmed by that too, but infinitely glad someone cares even if you can’t get a word in edgewise, LOL! Will think about it.

Mercury, Gemini’s planet, is forming the fourth point of the Mutable Cross, Grand square! It is same degree opposite Saturn, one degree square Neptune, closely square Jupiter!

  • Jupiter is leaving Saturn, but Mercury is inviting a little more thinking about things. Jupiter wanted big and technically excellent. Saturn wanted to build but perhaps not in the expected location. Jupiter is generally trusting, but in Virgo skeptical. Saturn wants the facts, Sag says oh just let’s get on with it, or suggests yet another location – they love to travel! Saturn may be in denial, but Jupiter isn’t about to let that pass. And on around it goes. Now Mercury has heard it all and in one of its own signs, chats it out, brainstorms, possibly getting an unexpected consensus! Or, so much more input will be added, it all goes over the top, each going their separate ways. Forget about it! Huh. But none will be the same as before….
  • Saturn and Neptune will square June 17, coming right up! Mercury is logical, and downright smart in Gemini! It’s the same degree opposite Saturn in Sagittarius! Saturn may listen, though you gotta weave your way through the Sagittarius opinions, dropping hints and ideas here and there. One thing leads to another. Serious Saturn is keen on reality, and Sag loves another good story, so keep dropping those bread crumbs. Take ’em to the show so they can see it for themselves. Saturn might want you to make an appointment, show proper respect. Gemini is youthful and Saturn can be the cool Master. Keep your dignity, or make them laugh in spite of themselves! There’s no way to sneak up on Neptune. They know you’re on the way before you do! At times their intuition will trump your logic. Fine. Other times your fine logic will show them what a fool they have been and they will thank you for it. Sometimes it will seem like they are a confused mush, you could look right through them like glass, and no one is home. How do you talk to that?! If there are addiction issues, that could be true. But don’t confuse that with their waking dreams, or underestimate them or their dreams. They have magic on their side and it usually will prove out. They can be super dedicated Souls. There will be perfect times for each of you to use your talents.

Mars is potently in station, ‘standing still,’ at 23 Scorpio. If we use a 1 degree range for the station, it started June 18, Mars directs, turns forward, June 29, continues within 1 degree until July 12. It inconjuncts Uranus while retrograde June 18 and when direct July 13. This whole period of time will call for wider awareness, and because of that, adjustments. It makes sense to look aside, check out a side trip, pay attention, not let things slip by. We can be dazed by the wild Uranus in Aries, explosive, entertaining, strange and wonderful. Mars in Scorpio often feels invisible and invincible, inordinately curious! Either of them can have a temper. Uranus goes off like firecrackers; Mars in Scorpio smoulders. If you feel the heat rising, leave right now. Backup may be wise. If Uranus is complacent, not their usual venue, it could be a kickstart from Mars is on cue! If they are valuable but scaring people and losing their audience, Scorpio can show them how to hang onto themselves. Maybe one or both of them needs an adventure to spice their life. Can do! Be aware of how others may feel, be ready to take responsibility for any consequences. The ‘friendship’ may be short lived, but never forgotten!

Whatever didn’t happen when Jupiter squared Saturn, and you might even be glad for that, will more than be made up for by Jupiter trine Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s sign, June 26! This will be their last of three trines, so make the very, very best of it! This is MEGA SUPER TRINE! It’s known as a wealth aspect, great for healing! Jupiter itself is considered fame and fortune in old time astrology. In Virgo it can be for writers, any kinds of daily services from nursing to bookkeeping, pet care, landscaping, housekeeping, etc. Jupiter is publishing. Get your blog going. Travel can be for healthcare seminars. Pluto wants healing, Capricorn rules careers and elders. Building and real estate. Pluto rules all kinds of major monies – inheritance, banking, loans, grants, insurance. CEOs, corporations. Think big! See more!

The Full Moon Gemini Sun is in close longitude with Polaris, the Pole star, 28 GE 34! Polaris is at the north pole, never sets, stands almost motionless on the sky, and all the stars of the Northern sky appear to rotate around it. Other stars along this circle were the pole star in the past and will be again in the future, including Thuban and Vega. Polaris has been close to the actual position of the north pole for over 1000 years. Polaris has long been an important star to sailors, caravans of old winding their way over the desert by night and others who navigated their way by the stars. It is currently located almost directly overhead as seen from the North Pole.

The planet, Uranus, was discovered one degree longitude away from this star.

According to Ptolemy the bright stars are like Saturn and in some degree like Venus. It is said to give indifference and improvidence of spirit, and to lead to many troubles. By the Kabbalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Tau and the 21st Tarot Trump “The Universe.” The Chinese considered the Pole Star as “the great honorable Lord of the Heavens”. Other races too had high admiration for it, and one can draw the conclusion that, in a relevant position in the natal chart, it will give spiritual powers to the bearer, and he will be highly respected. The Pole Star serves as a guide and indicator. It can give a good sense of discretion and you will be able to follow your instinct, clearly recognize your aims, pursue and achieve them! You may find yourself up all night, at the center of things, the heart of the matter!

Take some time, get out in the Moonlight with a bowl of strawberry ice cream, or not! Smudge and clear, make an offering, give gratitude. Think on your dreams, call on your Guides and Polaris, breathe all the old away, breathe in the new Word! Pray for all Souls. If you are in a group, have Circle and, faces up, let the MoonLight bathe you, run through you all as One! Blessed be.
