Virgo EarthKeepers!

Happy Birthdays, Virgos!

Virgo Faith HIll, husband Tim McGraw Singers

Singer Faith Hill and her husband Tim McGraw arrive at the 48th ACM Awards in Las Vegas April 7, 2013.  (Reuters)

Perhaps you have heard of Faith Hill. She’s an unusual Virgo and there are reasons for that. Primarily she started as a country singer. Born Sept 21, 1967, we don’t have a birthtime for her, but she does have Pluto, Uranus and her Sun together in Virgo. Uranus is singers and Pluto is wealth. She has sold over 40 million albums and accumulated 11 number one singles on the Country charts. Uranus rules the world at large, and Pluto takes it to the extreme!

She has Jupiter and Venus together in Leo. She’s golden with the classic chocolate brown eyes, though at times the camera picks up a beautiful hazel color just like my Virgo Aunt Ruth had. She has golden hair and often dresses gold. Golden gowns and lots of shiny, just like the Sun, Leo’s ‘planet,’ a shining star!

Faith’s romantic Leo planets have brought her a most unusual success! She is super successful making adoring duets with her husband Tim McGraw, a looker in his own right! They make it a rule not be be apart more than 3 days at a time.

She has come a long way. Adopted. Quit college, was discovered after some time at Nashville. Her Moon in Taurus gives more good looks, a sensuous voice, and perseverance. She has lots of records, both numbers of records sold, and has set some records! The song ‘Wild One,’ on her first album, made her the first female country singer in 30 years to hold Billboard’s #1 position for four consecutive weeks! When she followed her album Faith with Breathe, it debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard Country and all genre charts, ahead of albums by Mariah Carey and Savage Garden. “The Way You Love Me” hit the top ten as well (#6), and became one of the longest running singles in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 (57 weeks)! The album won all kinds of awards!

Hill has been honored by the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music, the Grammy Awards, the American Music Awards and the People’s Choice Awards and so many more in so many ways. In 2001 she was named one of the 30 most powerful women in America by Ladies Home Journal.

Classic Virgo book lover! Hill used her 1999 tour to support a national children’s book drive. Fans who donated books at one of her concerts were entered into a drawing to meet her personally after the show. The effort resulted in the donation of 35,000 children’s books, which were distributed to hospitals, schools, libraries, and daycare centers in 40 cities across the United States.

Hero and Heroine! True to the community planet Uranus conjunct Faith’s sun, in the days immediately following Hurricane Katrina, Hill and her husband, who was raised in Louisiana, joined groups taking supplies to Gulfport, Mississippi. The two also hosted several charity concerts to benefit those who were displaced by the storm. Later in the year the couple established the Neighbor’s Keeper Foundation, which provides funding for community charities to assist with basic humanitarian services in the event of a natural disaster or for desperate personal circumstances.

Their Soul2Soul II Tour 2006 became the highest grossing country music tour ever with a gross of $90 million. It was named “Major Tour of the Year” by the prestigious Pollstar Magazine, beating out such heavyweights as Madonna and the Rolling Stones. In a special gesture, the couple donated all of the profits from their performance in New Orleans to Hurricane Katrina relief.

Currently they are in progress with their 2017 Soul2Soul World Tour! Here’s the schedule if you would like to see them!

Released in April, Faith & Tim Preach R E S P E C T Toward Women With New Song ‘Speak to a Girl’ They take turns trading verses. First Faith offers a female’s perspective, then Tim echos from the man’s side. As parents of three teenage daughters, you can see why it is so important to them. Blessed be.

Virgo 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

8.29.17 Moon Saturn Antares Photo Op Rings of Saturn!

 

Moon near Saturn and Antares on August 29!

Use the Moon to find Saturn, the 6th planet outward from the sun. Saturn now shines in front of the constellation Ophiuchus, of the sometimes called the forgotten constellation of the zodiac. Find out more about Ophiuchus on our Tonight post for August 13.

Saturn is the most distant world that you can easily see with the unaided eye. Moreover, you can view Saturn’s majestic rings with nothing more than a modest backyard telescope. Even though the four outer planets (planets orbiting the sun outside the asteroid belt) – Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune – have a ring system of sorts, Saturn’s rings are the most spectacular by leaps and bounds.

This year, in 2017, the north side of Saturn’s rings are maximally tilted toward Earth. So right now is a great time to dust off that telescope and gaze at Saturn, the crown jewel of the solar system.

[Oh, and Antares is the brightest star in the Scorpio Constellation! If you know where Scorpio is, you can find Antares then Saturn!]

Outer Planet Transits with Virgo 2017- Aug 2018!

The super amazing Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse in Leo catapulted us into Sun in Virgo Aug 22! What an entry! The 5 part Lunar sequence linked with the Mercury Retrograde cycle is finishing with Virgo’s New and Full Moons!

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

The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, started the 2017 retrograde set of the SIX aspects in reverse order through May 18. The final set of six started July 4. September 23 and 27 Jupiter inconjuncts Chiron and opposes Uranus, Oct 10 Jupiter enters Scorpio! Nov 2 Saturn squares Chiron, and the entire set finishes 11/11 with Saturn trine Uranus! That’s a go ahead!

Jupiter is in its final 49 days of Libra, enters Scorpio Oct 10! Time to find good footing and balance to make and weather relationships. Make alliances that will hold true through times to come, go to schools and places that will make a difference. Learn how to equalize the elements at hand, trade and exchange wisely.

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

Outer Planet Transit Aspects Virgo 2017 – Sep 2018!

Virgo Health Strong Stride Couple Nordic Walking

Virgo in a healthy strong stride! Walking is free – fresh air, healthy heart, relaxing!

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

Pluto in Capricorn reaches the beginning of the last third of Capricorn May 2018 moving from 16 to 21 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Pluto and Capricorn are both harmonious with Virgo, another earth sign. Pluto and Virgo are both perfectionists and hard workers. Pluto can take it to extremes. This is one rare instance when Virgo may put on the brakes! Virgo is a fine craftsman, uses the best materials. Capricorn goes for durability, strength and protection and is willing to forfeit some details to get the job in on time. Pluto and Virgo are both healers. Capricorn bides his time, steps in when the time is right. Expect some sifting away the chaff.

Neptune is in its own sign, a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. Pisces is opposite Virgo. Virgo heals the body and Mind while Pisces heals the Soul. Virgo seeks data that explains and procedures that makes sense. Pisces goes way beyond that into an inexplicable greater realm, seeing what may happen that makes no logic but comes to pass anyway. The Soul has its own course. Sometimes we understand; sometimes there is a greater picture that is more important, operates in a different order than reason. If Pisces gets lost in the spiritual ethers, Virgo pulls the sails back to a stable flow with the currents, for a possible course correction.

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 2 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the last year of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a automatic. In Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries is the first to DO it! Fire and electricity make the world go around! Virgo loves a better way, but wants to keep her routine! Uranus is the unpredictable, unstable at times, ChangeMaker fast as lightning! Aries is fast too, easily distracted by the next new thing! Great as a consultant, but Virgo is the one usually left with incorporating the conversion. Virgo is considered a flexible, adaptable sign, but this will call for the max! Routines can not be counted on, the rules may be changed daily! Virgo calls on the inventors and leaders to slow down at times, and for them to be even more creative in finding ways for their ideas to be more easily assimilated. Virgo first wants to see how it works and know why. She safeguards the system.

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Taurus tries out the application. It needs to be easy to use, worth the effort. It calls for a steady and practical solution. Virgo quite agrees. The Uranian wildcard is always extraordinary, so can do that too! Taurus and Virgo are both earthy. Taurus rules fur, farm animals; Virgo rules pets. Hopefully some animals may be more protected. Taurus wants comfort and Virgo wants their patients to be relieved of suffering that more of their energy will go to healing. Taurus grows plants that Virgo may harvest for seeds and use as less expensive medicinals. Uranus in Taurus may find some fascinating massage or yoga techniques never used before. Virgo can always use a little relaxation. A walk on the land would suit them both. Taurus is ruled by Venus, beauty and value. Virgo organizes patterns and has incredible craft skills making exquisite quilts, wood carvings, ceramic tiles, sophisticated clothing designs!

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

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Virgo, as with Neptune, is opposite Chiron. There is more affinity since Chiron was a noted healer, and Virgo was the village medicine person and midwife. She carried her basket of herbs. She was WiseWoman, who counseled mind as well as healing body. She was High Priestess at times, knowing the magic that went with the medicine. Chiron suffered long, learned a lot, became teacher. Virgo works on a daily basis. Chiron in Pisces may be a more spirit master, giving insights that help the daily ministrations find a way to be received and absorbed. At times Virgo may need to stand aside, then return when the patient is ready again. Good health and clear thinking are important! Chiron and Virgo may do great business together, become partners, even marry!

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! Virgo has its tried and true ways, so some upstart may have to prove himself before Virgo accepts the new ideas! Rarely does Virgo let themselves be rushed, but if the cure works, will do anything in their power to distribute it. If it is not properly vetted, Virgo may demand the proper processes be applied. Aries marvels at the details Virgo does, may have to jump in to move things faster, save the day! Virgo could be temporarily overwhelmed, but can carry on as the dust settles.

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

In Sagittarius Saturn squares Virgo, but is also an Earth planet, earth sign combination. Saturn has a greater range of vision in Sagittarius and he’s gotten used to it! He keeps Virgo lined up with the greater plan and aware of how much time it will take. Some details make all the difference. Others will be let go by agreement in context of the great good, the best for all. In Sag, Saturn wants work to be broader, culture inclusive or tightens the work to the most meager and cost cutting possible, perhaps choosing quantity versus quality, foreign workers at the lowest pay. Virgo is known for fine craftsmanship, stands for consumer rights, and dignity, safety and health care for workers, no animal or human abuse. They may part company if compromise isn’t possible. Find work where your contribution is respected and celebrated, serves your community!

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

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

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when you get work that suits you better or you start your own business! Capricorn and Virgo are in it together for the long run. Virgo usually has a notable skill they deserve credit for! Capricorn sees that talent and puts them to work unless Virgo hires them to run things! Capricorn builds the laboratory that Virgo may do the trials and testing. Caps make Virgo more aware of time spent and effective timing. Virgo suggests health and nutrition techniques that Capricorn know will promote a more healthy older age. Hand in glove.

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. Right 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 20 Libra to 23 Scorpio, entering Scorpio Oct 10!

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Jupiter in Libra can be well traveled and curious wherever it goes, giving suggestions and making comparisons right and left. Virgo, one of Libra’s neighboring signs, is so different. Their quiet performance is honed through intense focus, trial and error, hands on experience. Jupiter can be their sales rep, work the showroom, publish the news releases! Virgo is so dedicated they sometimes forget to do business. Jupiter sees their value and wants to partner! To unassuming Virgo, it seems like Jupiter is making a big fuss about it all. Virgo sometimes doesn’t even realize how extraordinary what they have done is! Well traveled Jupiter sees it instantly! It stands far above the rest! Ask this artisan first when it is a good time to talk, and don’t keep them too long. Make your points, requests, go away and let them think it over…. Ha! Let yourself be discovered!

Jupiter in Scorpio! Virgo and Scorpio straddle Libra the middleman! Jupiter is still moving things along, confident and optimistic! The traveler seeker is always looking for amazing things. Scorpio is often obsessed with perfection and Virgo can offer that quality! Scorpio, a psychological healer, is seeking a deeper value, and Virgo, a fellow healer, body/mind, always shares. Jupiter calls Virgo to bring it out further into teaching, whether private tutoring, a small group or to as many as will listen or by writing the book! Jupiter is publisher, Scorpio is journalist, Virgo is author, especially of DIY and training manuals. Time to gather the information, Jupiter may flood you with it! Organize it, synthesize the various facets into a working sequence, arrange publishing! Jupiter in Scorpio is a master at getting funding and Virgo is super at accounting. This work will help many and have a charismatic appeal. Worthy investment.

If your Jupiter is in these Libra or Scorpio degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it 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 Outer Planet Sign Changes Timetable:

Oct 10  Jupiter from Libra to Scorpio

Virgo EarthKeepers!

Virgo Earthkeeper Master Gardener

Image at Jackson County Master Gardener™ Association, Southern Oregon Research & Extension Center, Central Point OR

Virgos have a knack for making our lives a more beautiful place!

Tending gardens, houseplants and humans comes naturally for them. Mowing your lawn or a Horticulture or Landscaping degree are things they are good at. They have an eye for natural spacing and placing. Being with Nature reduces stress and improves sleep, balances a busy life, increases happiness! It works even if it involves just nurturing a few pots on a balcony! Good pesticide free organic food keeps us healthy, restores us. You are what you eat and you think more clearly. Flowers are like sunshine to our every thought.

Mind and body go together! Nutrition and nursing takes care of every detail. Through their clear attention our thinking follows a divine order, we save time, have time to do more elegant things as well! Intricate professions like bookkeeping/accounting, systems analysis, efficiency consulting show us more powerful percentages and abundant payoffs. Weeding our lives of unnecessary clutter  and cleaning up literally makes our lives brighter!

Growing humans is sometimes hard work on both sides. Virgo usually knows quite a bit. Delivering the knowledge isn’t always easy for either the Virgo or the other person, possibly another Virgo! Virgo can have a bite with her bark, even when there is good intention behind it. The trick is to educate at appropriate times, ask if it is a good time to talk, talk when no one is tired, with a smile of appreciation on your face and mean it. It’s not what you say, but how you say it. A good rule to follow is 5 appreciations to one criticism. Know that too much criticism unkindly delivered has consequences. You may lose a connection, even damage the other person, especially if a Virgo child or mate. If you are clever at criticism, you can be clever with praise! The process is not to prove how smart you are or one up to make yourself bigger or better than, but to share and make an ally, pull together in the traces. Well oiled machine. Hats off to you for your efforts.

Working independently is often best. Virgos have their ways, often a routine. Interruptions throw them off course. Delegating is not so easy. They like it precise and excellent quality. They are quite willing to do that for you. Too much fine tuning and sometimes they lose their job. However, if poor quality materials or building jeopardize lives, they may need to be in a safe place to blow the whistle. Believe me, they will have the data and evidence to back up what they claim. Heroes and heroines. Some can be good instructors, but they need good students that can keep up. Virgos deliver a lot of well thought out information in a very short time! On-the-job training, hands on examples are the best for them.

Though Virgos are often avid readers, have a library of their own, book learning is just not their best job training medium unless it is a do-it-yourself manual! Hands on, on-the-job training works better. They can see it and feel it, prove it to themselves. Yet Virgos are #1 as authors! They can write and write and write! Mystery novels! Virgos are consummate puzzle solvers! Famed Agatha Christie was Virgo rising, Saturn and Sun in Virgo, Jupiter in the 6th house! Chart They write super informative detail by detail how-to blogs, stunning documentaries, well organized training manuals!

Virgos do a lot of daily business. They are not usually heavy lifters, but keep things livable and in running order. Repairs, housekeeping, gardening, laundries, trash removal, elder caregivers. If they have a bit of Sagittarius in their chart, expect a hotel/bed and breakfast or university work or works at the racetrack! Ones with a bit of Cancer in their charts may tend the genealogy archives at the library or museum. Throw in some Taurus and you may get a veterinarian that adores fur persons and livestock. With Aquarius you may get a double checking researcher who is honored for the excellence of their trustworthy work.

Environmental concern is strong with them. They love our Earth, often are walkers. Toxic cleanup, restoration and protection of habitats, protecting wildlife whether running a campaign, a rescue organization, a  preserve or being a ranger are favored. They can do meaningful research seeking long term results, trends for climate change. Don’t be surprised if your Virgo becomes a Master Gardener!

Simply put, Virgos do a monumental job as EarthKeepers, in so many ways, every single day.

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

Most significant Mercury Retrograde Leo-Virgo 2017!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The FIVE part Lunar Sequence!

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

Here’s the Mercury and Lunar Timing!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Happy Birthdays, Leos!

Leo Chris Hemsworth Australian Actor Thor Hero

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Be the Hero of your own life!

Leo 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Perseids Meteor Shower Radiant

Thank you to Bruce McClure and EarthSky.org!

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

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

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

Leo 2017 TimeLine!

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

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

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

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

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

Outer Planet Transit Aspects Leo 2017 – Aug 2018!

Leo Woman Traveler Luggage Heels

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

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

Pluto in Capricorn reaches the beginning of the last third of Capricorn May 2018 moving from 16 to 21 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Pluto is inconjunct Leo. Leo enjoys being watched, but usually not negative reviews, and if anyone can find the secrets, Pluto in Capricorn has the inclination and means. If necessary fess up, no blackmail! If it is your manager, they have practical advice for your progress, but you may need to be your Self to your fullest to get where your Spirit leads you. It may be challenging to find the right balance. Pluto can bring financial indiscretion or obsessions with illegal relationships, but also may call for you to avoid some self indulgence, detox, save your own life!

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

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 2 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the last year of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here’s the Outer Planet 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, Leos! Light the Way! 

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

Leo Sunbeams & Lightbearers!

Leo Woman Sunbeams LightBearers

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Blessed be to all you Radiant Hearts!

Happy Birthdays, Geminis!

Gemini rising Frenchman Marcel Marceau was perhaps the greatest mime, the Master of Face, performed professionally worldwide for over 60 years. He let his body talk, referring to mime as the "art of silence." 

Gemini rising Frenchman Marcel Marceau was perhaps the greatest mime, the Master of Face, performed professionally worldwide for over 60 years. He let his body talk, referring to mime as the “art of silence.”

An actor is a mime/mimic who talks! Silent film comedians like Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, and Buster Keaton learned the craft of mime in the theatre, but through film, they have had a profound influence on mimes working in live theatre decades after their deaths. Indeed, Chaplin may be the best-documented mime in history. He had Neptune conjunct Pluto in Gemini.

Lucille Ball was 100% expression! If her words didn’t get you, her expressions did! As one person said ‘She was naturally gifted with comic timing and fearless self expression.’ She had no problem to mime Charlie Chaplin miming! Mercury, the Gemini planet, grand trined her Moon in Capricorn/Mars in Taurus. Mercury quintiled, 71 degrees – 1/5 of a circle, her Pluto in GEMINI! She was truly gifted in communications, charismatic!

Robin Williams mimed in New York City’s Central Park, and while studying at Juilliard. He worked outside The Museum of Modern Art for some extra cash! He could say so much without saying a word! What an expressive human being! His Mercury, the planet of Gemini was exactly at the apex of his chart.

Mimic, mime, is a form of twinism.

As I have scanned through some other famous mimes, Pisces and Scorpio and their planets Neptune and Pluto come up strongly. Pisces/Neptune is the ability to flow, become one with another. Just like the Pisces fishes are bound as one, reflecting each other, they are like the twins of Gemini bound in their genetics. They are the ultimate empath signs, the first and last mutable signs. Scorpio/Pluto have the utmost capacity for silence, ninjas. Their silence removes a distracting layer. Rather than hearing, we are reduced to and focused only on seeing. It intensifies that connection. They can instantly cut to the core, see us deep. Though they are not speaking, they have our full attention, magical hypnotism!

Blessings to all who show us your face that we may see ours!

Gemini 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

The Moon conjuncts Jupiter exactly on June 3 at 6:44 PM Pacific! It will be beautiful that evening! See them and Corvus, the Crow, just below them.

The Moon conjuncts Jupiter exactly on June 3 at 6:44 PM Pacific! It will be beautiful that evening! See them and Corvus, the Crow, just below them.

Bruce McClure at EarthSky says ‘the waning gibbous moon passes 2o north of the planet Jupiter, the brightest starlike object in the evening sky. What a sight! The moon and Jupiter pop out first thing at dusk, and they’ll be fun to spot in the darkening sky. A bright star nearby, Spica in the constellation Virgo, will come into view to the east of the moon and Jupiter as night deepens.

There’s no way to mistake Spica for Jupiter – or vice versa. Jupiter is by far the brighter object. That’s not to say that Jupiter is the more luminous of these two celestial lights. It’s not. Jupiter, being a relatively close planet, shines because it reflects the light of the sun.

Spica is a distant star, or actually two stars in one. Spica, which shines by its own light, is vastly more intrinsically luminous than Jupiter. It’s just much, much farther away. If Spica were at the sun’s distance from Earth, it’d visually be 1,900 times brighter than our sun. Or, another way of putting it, the sun at Spica’s distance of 250 light-years would appear 1/1,900th as bright as Spica. You’d definitely need an optical aid to see our sun this far away.

By Sunday night, June 4, you’ll see the moon has moved closer to Spica on the sky’s dome.’

Thank you to Bruce McClure and EarthSky.org!

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

Gemini 2017 TimeLine!

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

The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, started the 2017 retrograde set of the SIX aspects in reverse order through May 18. Taurus has the last three of this reverse set, the April 30 Saturn square Chiron, and the last two back to back, Jupiter inconjunct Neptune station May 17 to July 4, and Saturn trine Uranus! The final set of six starts July 4 in forward order, finishing 11/11!

Gemini 2017 has no new outer planet aspect combinations. Rather, in the Jupiter inconjunct Neptune station, for 48 days, we stay in contemplation, a continuous exploration of myths and miracles! We take steps off the main course, venturing into the relativity of causation – how we were created, how we ourselves are the cause of our future. Walking through the invisible veils that once held us, becomes a way of life. We are always fresh, know the perfect vantage point for clear vision.

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017.
Saturn will be in Sagittarius until Dec 19, 2017.

Four outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter, are changing signs in Gemini’s year to come. What we do now will be backdrop and foundation for our future moves. Stay tuned in! 

Pluto in Capricorn reaches the beginning of the last third of Capricorn May 2018 moving from 16 to 21 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! They are intrigued by this Gemini with all their questions and ideas. Gemini can be impressively intelligent, quick, fearless and clever. In league with Pluto, they can spot flaws in the system. Gemini is ideal for darting in for investigative research or reporting. Give them a wide range or they will be off to more interesting projects.

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. Neptune blurs and blends while Gemini makes a clean sharp focus, brightens the colors! They both use images, Neptune adds the music. What Gemini might miss with his visual ability and fast thinking, Neptune will relax to a deeper keen listening, an empathic talent, that finds subsurface or more remote knowledge. Gemini might feel out to sea, but it’s only another facet of mind to experiment with.

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! Gemini is delighted by this impetuous wild card player! They have met their match and then some! No boredom with this combination! Fire and electricity make the world go around, and Gemini is collecting mega data to feed the Team! The Team helps them stand back to see the great panorama of humanity before them, to see collective shifts right before their eyes! Gemini’s work has taken on so much more meaning! Extraordinary friendships will kindle amazing new interests.

When Uranus gets into Taurus it’s going to be quite different for you Geminis. There will be a slowing, a stabilizing. Ideas will be more solid, strengthened. Weak spots will be more finely calibrated, balanced, recharged. Your life may seem less complicated and maybe that brings you relaxation, time to observe what has become and needs steady tending. Since you were part creator, you won’t mind. It’s a time to treasure what you have done. Tai Chi might become part of your life, or you find a superb acupuncturist! Mind and fingers and touch. A loyal unity. 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 2 Aries, entering Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will conjunct any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business.

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Chiron sees Gemini is a quick learner, and in Pisces, Chiron knows what to offer when. Gemini has a voluble, versatile, distractible mind. You have to speak quickly and be in sync, and it’s good if it’s something your Gemini hasn’t heard before! Be ready to let then know succinctly why it is important, and have your next points ready to go in a sequence that makes sense. That can be a little difficult if Pisces is in the dreamy mode, or a piece of cake to Pisces the ultimate sign of making intuitive insightful adjustments, mind melding! Healing may occur for Geminis when Chiron sees errors in the way their mind works, patterns of thinking that don’t work, or their mind gets so busy they miss the big picture or have a hard time listening. That could be difficult for both of you at first, but you Geminis take it easy. It can be to your great advantage to develop more communications skills.

When Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will speed up healing at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance! Aries will be more at Gemini’s pace and Gemini loves fresh and bright! Geminis may find themselves writing inspiring health articles, about new business ventures or successful athletes and heroes, riding their bike to work!

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

In Sagittarius Saturn is opposite Gemini. You may find your travel budget lacking for the time being, or may find perfect low budget opportunities! Travelers may try to take over, or you may sell your business for a profit. Education may need to wait, but is still a good investment as soon as possible. Saturn has some realistic proposals that may help you focus and save time. The plans look well founded. Time and costs need working out. Perhaps there’s a need to reign in diversifying for awhile. Instead, give the most attention to your best seller, concentrate on what gives the best return per expenses. Reach across the table for the excellent advice of mentors. Gather your data for publishing later. See an editor and line up an attorney who specializes in what you do!

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

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

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when you get work that suits you better or you start your own business! Gemini businesses may be any kinds of communications, consulting – think tanks, working with your hands, medical specialties involving the lungs/airways/nose – shoulders, looking younger! Saturn will want adjustments – more precision, science based techniques, attention to critical timing, sometimes working with elders, laws. Fathers and bosses likely will make more demands, you feel your age. Saturn offers tips for more efficiency, production increases! 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. Gemini another air sign, loves greeting all the people, is excited about all kinds of art, wants to make a portfolio! Poetry, news blogs, marketing advertising are encouraged by Jupiter who wants to get the word out as far as possible, recruit new links, have many stations! Gemini, a diversity specialist, is quite willing to be a go between between go betweens! Jupiter sees a greater picture, and Libra is quite worldly compared to Gemini of siblings and neighbors, so the new dimension is to see the brothers and sisters of the world! As twins, they are psychic, quick to pick up on how we are more alike than different! There will be lots of questions with new answers!

Jupiter in Scorpio tweaks Gemini from off center opposite. Jupiter still wants all those communications, education/teaching type things to come true. In Scorpio the emphasis becomes funding, healing, deeper relationships. Gemini may be thrown off stride as requests are make to back up what they say, record their source, meet deadlines. Jupiter may ask for more material, and Scorpio can be extreme, intense, even asking for a journalistic approach that could have dangerous consequences. Gemini is the sign of breathing, and may not take that job! Jupiter wants total well being, and Scorpio is ever the healer. If you have been neglecting your state of mind, now might be the perfect time to see the therapist. Clean up is good. Someone may come along who loves you more than you ever knew was possible. If Gemini feels loved too much, they feel the loss of a substantial amount of their freedom, they may be blessed to see how love can be, but pass on this particular style.

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

Gemini Spreads the Light through the Word!

Gemini Planets Hawaiian Tapestry Jay Wilson

Gemini is an intricate sign of many dimensions, natural geometry, a galaxy of colors, the ultimate mindfulness, magical intelligence! Gemini’s are not just twins, they are the Magicians of Diversity! Mimic and mime, the multiplicity of becoming one with another, and another and another. Shifting quicksilver sands, breezes wafting an effervescent mind. They are not just male or female, but androgynous. They are often ambidextrous. Because their approach to life is so unusual, they make surprising connections in fractions of a second! They ride the kaleidoscope of life!

Their treasure of communication lights our hearts! It can be through speaking and listening. It can be a kind touch of healing – hugs or holding hands a transference of pure energy. It can be a shared breath. A common thought when we each say the same thing at the same time. Can you imagine being a twin? What it would be like seeing your own face looking back at you? What if you were suddenly a twin, right now?! Would it be mimic and mime, or a automatically genuine rapport beyond words? How would it feel to see things mirrored about yourself that you might not like? What if you both fall in love with the same person?

Supreme communication can be a blessing, a communion. Admiration, appreciation. Reverence. A swearing in, a diploma on parchment. A book that expresses feelings so real we forget we are reading because we become one with it, sharing another Soul’s gift of perception. Awe at the recognition of beauty – art treasures, the unbearable beauty of a baby, another person, a pet, their givingness. Amazement that takes our breath away! A proposal, commitment of marriage or devotion.

Gemini uses the daily breath to wish each other well, sharing getting off to work and school. Don’t forget your lunch, Honey, see you later. With couples it is the ‘I love you’ that makes a difference in our hearts.

Gemini holds the voice of the sacred prayer for safety, good health and healing. It is the words through the Dream Catcher that carry our hopes on the breezes of Spirit. It’s the call to attention to the important things in life, always and everywhere. Gemini gathers the voices and gains a higher perspective. Many voices in consensus have greater power through unity.

Gemini spreads the Light through the word. It goes out across the world and back again enriched and transformed. It shares the goodness we find. Chapter by chapter it tells our story. Information is the sacred tapestry, woven by the village, all connected. It represents and links the cultures of all beings, Humanity.

Gemini spreads the Light through the word. It’s not what you say, but how and when you say it. It’s a Gift we give each other. Whether you need to tell someone something good about them, or stand kindly for the Truth, never neglect to speak your heart in a good way. Make that phone call.

Deep breath. Be still. Listen with your heart….

The lyrics of the opening verse of ‘Tapestry’ by Carole King. Ms King has Jupiter in Gemini and Gemini’s planet Mercury in the same degree as her Sun!

My life has been a tapestry
Of rich and royal hue;
An everlasting vision
Of the ever-changing view;
A wond’rous woven magic
In bits of blue and gold;
A tapestry to feel and see;
Impossible to hold.

New SuperMoon! Mars TSquare! Saturn at GALACTIC CENTER!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mars Mutables TSquare with Chiron and Saturn

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Gemini Strawberry Full Moon NYC Boni de Oliveira

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

May your journeys be entirely inspiring!

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!

Taurus 2017 TimeLine!

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.

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!

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!

Venus Mercury Retrograde Zion Angel's Landing Walters Wiggles

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

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

April 19 Note: Venus is now direct, moving forward since April 15, finishing her whole cycle May 18. Mercury is retrograde April 9 to May 3. For perspective I’m leaving the Venus retrograde information since it happened first and overlapped with Mercury retrograde, flavoring Mercury retrograde! Plan ahead for Mercury station conjunct Uranus April 27 to May 9!

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

Venus Retrograde

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

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

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

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

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

Mercury Double Retrograde!

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

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

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

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

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

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