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

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

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

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

About Retrogrades!  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Galactic Center 2009 NASA

NASA image of the Galactic Center

The first ten months of 2019 Neptune has been being prepared for the sister events, the Transit of Mercury Eclipse and Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! He has been activated SIX times, three by Jupiter’s challenging viewpoints. Neptune is stirred, no longer laying still. He may be on his feet like a Thich Nhat Hanh walking meditation or sitting in a dynamic meditation. For now he needs to be in a healthy awake, alert on duty condition. And there are three activations by Saturn, doing on-the-ground testing the principles Jupiter and Neptune have pondered, getting the kinks out to let it all flow smoothly. Neptune is a planet of being infinitely, delicately, richly  sensitive, a giant receptor. In some ways it is indiscriminate and that is good when a transmission of this solar magnitude comes through. Neptune doesn’t block any part of it; it comes through whole. Mercury rules Gemini, information, data, and Virgo analysis. Neptune rules the sign opposite Virgo, Pisces. It’s important not to judge, or try to make order of it, but just see it as it is, an order we aren’t yet used to. It must be untampered with so the original is protected intact. This Transit event will last hours, so Mercury and Neptune have to be strong. It will take months and years, maybe a lifetime, to understand in fullness.

The June 16, 17 and 18 events are particularly important since the 16 and 18 events are at the 18th degree, the one that links Pluto at the Ecliptic and the Transit of Mercury. The Full Moon on the 17th at 25 Sagittarius also acts as a receptor.

The Oct 30, 2018 248 year Pluto at the Ecliptic is linked to the Transit of Mercury Eclipse by degree. The Transit of Mercury and Jupiter at the Galactic Center are only 8 days apart, Nov 11 and 19, 2019! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path and Mercury crosses the face of the Sun, both infused with the major Light, SOLAR light of our Solar system! Jupiter, Mercury’s ‘opposite’ planet (Mercury of Gemini opposite Jupiter of Sagittarius, now IN Sagittarius), is a BIG planet being infused with GALACTIC LIGHT – 200+ billions of Suns! Jupiter is a lucky charm that enhances where it is. We will feel fortunate and optimistic about what we receive. Jupiter will be wearing his regal cloak while we all make plans what to do!

Nov 11 Mercury is charged up, radiant with super information! It’s communication fibers have been seared clean, and are eminently more capable of pure transmission. Mercury speaks with power of the most important matters, is brilliant with more channels! It must be so, because it will also be the neighborhood channel of Jupiter’s galactic encounter! Jupiter will teach life changing insights of planetary importance far and wide. Perspectives will shift immensely. Mercury will step down some of the information to the average citizen. Did you hear about…..?! Data will be gathered to see how the citizens are taking it all, and that will be taken back to ‘Central’ to see what needs to be released next, to whom, and how. Ok, back to the beginning…

The Moon crosses the Galactic Center 12 to 13 times a year, the Sun once a year. Jupiter crosses it every 12 years while in its own sign Sagittarius, the host sign of the Galactic Center! Jupiter will get very close to it April 2019 when it goes stationary retrograde at 25 Sag, and then the doors are wide open at the exact conjunction about 7 AM Pacific November 19 2019 at 27 Sag 07!

Per the Cosmic Intelligence Agency (chuckle): The Galactic Centre is the point around which our whole galaxy, The Milky Way turns. It was discovered in Feb 1974, fittingly with the [Moon’s] North Node at 27° Sagittarius and Saturn at the South Node. The Galactic centre moves like a fixed star at the rate of precession through the zodiac at 1° every 72 years, forward in the tropical zodiac (as the Aries point moves backward) and is currently [was] at 26°59′ Sagittarius. At this centre is a super massive black hole [4 light years wide], a galactic gravitational centre, a huge cosmic womb of sorts. What we know of black holes is that they are massive forces of energy sucking in everything around them, yet full of power, potential and creation. The core and key of the birth of the galaxy itself.  It is as big as 4 million suns. It is 25,000 light years away. To give you an idea of how far away that is, Alpha Centauri our closest star is 4.3 light years away, with mega giant star Betelgeuse 642 light years away.

The 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic, and 2019’s Mercury across the face of the Sun – Transit of Mercury, are strictly local by comparison! Both are related to our one Sun, whereas the GC is the center of 200+ billions of star systems! Yet, by closeness of dates and degrees, the Transit of Mercury Nov 11, eleven, eleven, and Jupiter at the GC Nov 19 are very much related, virtually happening together! At the Transit, Jupiter is at 25 degrees Sag, less than two degrees of the GC conjunction. The Transit of Mercury Eclipse is closely linked with the Ecliptic event and the GC event! It is perhaps pivotal between them. It is the observer of the year following the Ecliptic event, transmits to the Sun and the Sun to him, then Jupiter is the go between of Earth and the Galaxy!  Mercury is considered the neighborhood planet, where Jupiter, his ‘opposite’ planet, is the traveler spreading the good word far and wide, giving meaning to Mercury’s data and incorporating it in his big plans! This is a BIG party!

It feels like you have the whole Galaxy at your fingertips! You reach out so far you can forget where you came from! And it doesn’t matter. You just be the best you can be everywhere you are. The Galactic Center, GC, is a monumental point of infusion of collected Light of all the stars, not just our Galaxy but other star systems as well. Open your mind and Spirit as much as you possibly can. Don’t bother about articulating or judging it; absorb it. You can sort it out later. If you, as one person, want to be heard, when there are events at this point in the zodiac, be sure to vote! We are heard collectively. Humanity progresses as it can; joining up with the Galactic Beings can boost the process.

Trines can be like greased lightning! There won’t be any trouble with these transmissions! See those TWO big blue triangles?! That’s them, Grand Trines –  grand because the trine has all three points filled! We feel lucky to have one; two is a bonus! The two planets we have been talking about, Mercury and Jupiter, are each in one of the two trines! Mercury, of course, is in the intuitive Grand Water Trine with Neptune in its own sign Pisces, the psychic of the Soul, the Sensitive. Mercury may try to analyze, can’t help it, but Neptune will keep the priority on the highest spiritual matters. Mercury is in Scorpio, a ‘fixed’ sign, in an eight day retrograde/direct (about to go forward) STATION! It ‘turns’ forward the NEXT DAY, Nov 20 at 11:12 AM Pacific! But in a station, it is ‘standing’ still, attuned, fully absorbing. It focuses, lets no motion distract it. Scorpio is a keen deep seeker, so every particle will be noticed and plumbed. It’s purpose is to heal so we may have union. The Phoenix rises from the Kundalini of its own ashes, the fertilizer of the past. It rises, unfettered, to the occasion. That is intense to experience or witness. As this release is slowly happening while in station, Mercury will soon again be going forward, gathering momentum, releasing the secrets of its findings!

So how long is Jupiter at the Galactic Center? Astrologers vary a lot in their rules about things like this. For such an exotic event they might allow a 1 degree before and after range. Since Jupiter is a slow moving outer planet, that would give it from Nov 14 to the 24th, 10 days. If a 5 degree range were allowed, the astrologer might allow 5 degrees ahead of the exact date and only, say, 3 degrees following, saying the energy would be dissipating after the exact event. That would then be Oct 25 to Dec 3, 39 days. Another astrologer might say that as soon as Jupiter changes signs Dec 2, that’s the end of it. But, as Mercury takes hours to cross the face of the Sun, how long might it take Jupiter to cross the Galactic Center so far, far away?! Is distance important to factor in? No. Pluto, our furthest most small planet, has tremendous potency many of us have lived! The Galactic Center itself moves only a degree every 72 years… I’m inclined to give it the 10 day timing that correlates with the Mercury 8 day station discussed in the paragraph above. But we are each so different in our ‘radar.’ When you feel it, is when it is true for you for sure, but we all know certain things come upon us so slowly we don’t realize it at first…give it some room, be open and alert.

And who is in the Grand Fire Trine?! JUPITER, a fire planet! Venus is right near him, coming to give her blessing! And bountiful it is because she is in Sagittarius too! They are gold medal splendid together! And the Moon and Part of Fortune in Leo, sign of Love, Heart and solar Light, are trining them! Moon is happily center stage and applauding as well! She makes us feel how connected we all are, how generous we can be. We can get tears in our eyes. In her nurturing spirit she helps present the benefit event of all benefit events! There are none to compare! It may be melodramatic, but it only makes the point. Fire signs represent Spirit, initiation, exuberance, leadership! Sag and Leo are both teaching signs. Perfect for the job ahead.

Yes, there are some challenges. The most organic is the classic male/female at odds Moon square Sun. Moon wants her way in Leo. Scorpio Sun says none of your business, and may be pressed to give Leo the support for the luxuries she knows she deserves. In the kindliest sense she may warm his heart, dote on him and he is secretly pleased, and melts a little bit. She needs to know not everything is about her. He cares so much. She sees him anonymously help others and respects him, is proud of him. In this case, they need to surrender selfishness and unspoken fears, to the greater Galactic business of Souls and the Planet.

Mars opposite Uranus could be a little kinky and hazardous. Mars in Scorp always thinks he has 9 lives, but why waste time in repeated recoveries of rocking the boat just a little too far? Enjoy the wild but stay steady with some down to earth friends. Listen to them.

The big challenge may involve Jupiter himself! He is out of sign square Chiron! They are coming to meet each other since Chiron is retrograde. Since Jupiter is at the end of Sag, and Chiron is at the beginning of Aries, they are both in fire signs at the time of the Galactic infusion. Later, Dec 8, when Jupiter is in Capricorn, it will square Chiron by signs that aren’t compatible. For now, Jupiter is maturing, enjoying his culmination in Sag. He’s happy to frolic with Chiron and is especially interested in new healing methods! Chiron is on hand for any help Jupiter may need. It’s not every day you have a Galactic encounter for real! Anything could happen! See more about the Dec 8 square.

The 2018 Pluto Ecliptic, the 2019 10 months of Jupiter/Saturn to Neptune combination, November’s Transit of Mercury and Jupiter at the Galactic Center are all bringing us up to speed for Saturn conjunct Pluto Jan 12, 2020 and The Crown Mar 21, 2020! It is a long and powerful sequence! Stay steady in the Light.

Those of you born Dec 17, 18, 19 are potently connected with the Galactic Center by birthright, always tuned to its frequency. You are lifelong channels for the rest of us. Some of you are conscious of this connection, for others it is yet to be discovered. The rest of us, with chart factors at 26, 27 and 28 degrees of any sign, don’t forget your midpoints, are connected as well. We each receive, translate and disseminate information from the skills our own signs – all of us components of the whole cosmic web.

Aries 2019 Celestial HighLights

Aries ~ It’s Alpha Time!

Aries 2019 Bicycles Women Harper's Weekly 1868 Historic Wheels of Change

In the late 1800s women forayed into the world of bicycles, and into a new world!

In Alpha-Omega thinking, Alpha is the beginning! In Alpha dog thinking, it is undisputed leadership! One might be naive, inexperienced, innocent, wide-eyed with discovery and anticipation. Alpha power brooks no fear, expects instant obedience, no failure, true courage.

Spirited! It’s from the collective experience of celebrating leaders who have ‘risen’ from the dead, to the unique personal experience of our Kundalini awakening! There can be technically excellent leaders, supercharged athletes, or the ones who win the Spirit Award. All hold a vital place on the team.

1st responders have another form of zoomies! Aries weren’t born to sit…and wait… Walking meditations are best. They are firey on-their-feet adventurers, great come and go consultants with the latest information. Their clean senses serve them well to be in the right place at the right time and do the right thing. They ‘get’ the situation instantly and save us from the dragons!

‘First’ is the word! Without a thought Aries takes on what’s never been done before, seems natural to them, and often succeed. The time has come and whether they plant the seeds or do the deed, yippee! We’re up and running, surprised, pleased. If one person can take the chance, surely we can carry on for them, making their effort count.

Aries 2019 Sunrise Wildflowers Monument Valley by Lars Leber!Aries is THE Sunrise sign! The 0° Aries, first degree of the first sign, place in a natural, elemental astrology wheel. It is the Ascendant or Rising Sign. That is the Alpha position in any chart, no matter what sign it faced into when you were born. It is the Sunrise position, the place where the Sun ascends out of darkness, out of the Dreamtime! It is a fresh start every single day no matter what the weather. We are innovative, refreshed with clear new ideas! As Spring Equinox it symbolizes a balance point between spring and fall, sunrise and sunset, our self and others.

Above is the stunning Wildflowers at Sunrise – Monument Valley, Arizona by photographer Lars Leber. Order one, see it in big beauty at his site!

Besides being of the day’s fiery golden beginning, Aries colors are red and white. Red is for taking action, the blood of the lamb, the sacrifices we make to bring change, for courage to fight a good fight. White is for purity, to always be true in Spirit. Red and a bit of gold and white is for those orange California poppies, the sacred cups of Spring dew. Red and white is the sweetest of pinks like the Dorset poppies, the gentle loving version of red. Throw in a bit of blue with the red and you’ve got the lavenders and purples so common to many precious medicinal herbs.

Where we have Aries in our charts, is where our brain functions at top speed! Mars, the Aries planet, is where we take action, and our Ascendant/Rising Sign, first house, take action in the flavor of our signs there. Aries has to do with our head. Sometimes we bump it, other times, with quick reflexes, we duck the low hanging tree limb just in time. Many an Aries has a renowned collection of headgear, from remarkable hats, headbands, assorted caps, visors, helmets, headlamps. Their hair may be short and sleek or tied up to fit their fast lifestyle. It’s a heady life and they can have great determination, a force to be reckoned with!

While their brain rarely gets tired, their body might, but it’s hard to get them to slow down or stop. They prefer to refuel en route. Or they need frequent brisk rowdy exercise to keep that amazing brain pumped up to top flight awareness! Aries are often race winners, sprinters more than marathoners. Bicycling holds strong with them. It’s independent and non polluting. Aries are terrific mechanics when emergency repairs are needed whether it is their bike or another vehicle. High performance bars and drinks and minimal gear let them fly at top speed! Personal and planetary energy sourcing is important to them.

Historically, you might enjoy National Geographic‘s Wheels of Change: How Women Rode the Bicycle to Freedom (With a Few Flat Tires Along the Way). It tells the riveting story of how the two-wheel wonder pedaled forward the emancipation of women in late-nineteenth-century America and radically redefined the normative conventions of femininity. Aries would be thrilled to hear this. Independence is one of their keywords! And, LOL, it often gets us in trouble, as this old quote shows: “The bicycle is the devil’s advance agent morally and physically in thousands of instances.” Read more at Maria Popova’s Wheels of Change!

Romance is intense, exciting, swept-off-your-feet fast. Compatibility is necessary for a long lasting union. Ironically, compatibility can be boring pretty quickly. Aries do love challenges, but patience is an entirely different matter. Better to work on the same challenge together than on each other. Tempers and tantrums can happen. Aries get distracted easily as a new opportunity calls to them, person or project. Independent as they are, like Sagittarius and Aquarius, some never marry. You may be heartbroken, disappointed. But how could you help it? They are superb humans, specimens.

Encounters with these Beings are uplifting to many. They save your life. You vow to help others too. They wake you up with new valuable ideas. You take up the cause! They have a brilliant radiance. You didn’t know life could be so vibrant! They don’t think a thing of being physical, it’s natural. Suddenly you realize you could be too and you’re off to the gym, on a walk or racing up a hill! Their instincts are effortlessly phenomenal! Without even thinking, you learn to trust yours. And that smile! They knock you out. They laugh, grin impishly, tease you a bit. Too sweet not to think that over, but not for long. Next thing you know, you are smiling too.

That’s Alpha.

Aries Overview of Year to Come!

The unusual 2019 Aries claim to fame is 3 lunar events, TWO Full Moons! The first is the March 20 Spring Equinox Full Worm Moon at 0°, the second is the April 19 AstroLogical Blue Moon, Full Pink Moon at 29° Aries! The beginning and end! What a powerful start for our first sign of the Zodiac! Chiron is really feeling the excitement of being in his new sign Aries! He and Uranus are settling in and getting used to their new signs Aries and Taurus!

Mercury Retrograde turns Direct, forward, March 28! Time then to put the finishing touches on changes that have come up.

An impressive sequence of unusual aspects started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter/Saturn with Neptune are at 18 Pisces. The coming nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs! Saturn conjunct Pluto is precisely linked to the the powerful aspect, same degree and sign, most close to the 2020 Presidential Elections. Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

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

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

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

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

Rights fighter Aries, ever sensitive and reactive to changes of content, notices the Dec 2 entry of Jupiter into Capricorn is different this time. There is a more serious note, even an urgency. Education and immigration become more important than ever. With Jupiter’s entry into Capricorn there will be 3 outer planets in Capricorn until Saturn enters Aquarius March 31, 2020! Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn July 1, 2020, and again, there will be 3 in Capricorn until Saturn makes his final shift into Aquarius Dec 16, 2020. Saturn will be in his own, more conservative sign Capricorn for the presidential elections. Jupiter and Saturn are both high mountain lovers, so looks like it’s going to be fun for some! Jupiter will make the travel plans; Cap will build the lodge! Jupiter quickly sees potential, offers encouragement, gathers the backers. Capricorn is ace at putting the right pieces together with terrific timing. Successful champions! The job comes in early, and the results are impressive! See more about Jupiter in Capricorn!

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

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

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

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

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Aries’s coming year they are exact twice in their new signs Aries/Taurus – June 30, 2019 and Feb 15, 2020 – at Valentine’s time! See more about Chiron/Uranus  

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


Outer Planet Transits with Aries 2019 – March 2020!

St Patrick's Day Good Luck Shamrocks!

May good luck be with you wherever you go and your blessings outnumber the Shamrocks that grow!

OUTER PLANETS WITH ARIES – Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter

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

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

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

In Aries’ year, Pluto is moving from 20 to 24 degrees. Capricorn squares Aries, and Pluto’s MO is just about opposite, so it is challenging for Aries. Pluto is deep and internal, protective, the Underworld. Aries is protective, a rights fighter, but on the ground, here and now, face to face! Pluto will use money, Aries is hands on, spiritedly will use fists if necessary, nevermind the size of the adversary! They have tons of courage and surprise often takes the day! No one expected that! Pluto in Capricorn will advocate psychology, going around to the back door, taking you to jail if things get out of hand. Not that they don’t admire you. They are often police and want to keep the peace and prevent further ado. Aries is there to show them that there are times you just have to take responsibility right now and sort the rest out later. Pluto may work with a lingering situation for years, while an Aries first responder saves your life in a second! We are grateful for both. They want the same things, their methods and timing are just very different. Talk it out and see where you each can do your best together.

NEPTUNE is in his own sign Pisces! He 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 sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors 15 to 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Aries is Neptune’s sign’s neighboring sign! As Neptune ends the zodiac, Aries/Mars begin the next round! Aries is so inspired he wants the Neptune/Pisces dream to come true right now! Neptune can be ponderous or sweep the island clean! Aries is generally slim and trim, spontaneously fast on his feet and pushes to find ways to carry the vision to new places, begin anew! New better tools and ways are thrilling to Neptune as his dreams come true much faster than expected! A champion advocate is now leading the pack!

URANUS, Aquarius’s planet, will cover 0 to 6 Taurus! March 6, 2019 Uranus entered Taurus the final time. Taurus invents simple. For some it either feels too close for comfort, or it’s the most fun you’ve had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! You may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away at all. But somehow it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Divine body electric!

Aries is delighted with the changes afoot, maybe ecological since Taurus rules Mother Earth and Uranus is evolutionary. Aries loves new and is cheering Uranus on! Again, there are different methods. In Taurus, at times, there may be a lay-down-and-wait approach, a lengthy pondering of possibilities. Aries has got the fiery cattle prod out for just such occasions! He dances around, takes you to see what’s been done, and how. Then oddly, Uranus, a lightning quick planet, sits again with the matter, thoroughly making considerations. But his ideas are on the mark, so some are willing to make the wait. Aries is still scouting the surroundings, finding more solutions and certainly won’t always wait. Some things just have to be put in place and tried. It will be a bit of a push/pull. Taurus sometimes lacks self-confidence, just has a slower pace, but is thankful nonetheless for successes. Taurus helps Aries ground, be centered while in action. Taurus is aware of natural cycles, breath and motion. Aries may inspire Taurus, and Taurus gains momentum. But, soon, Aries moves on to the next option, leaving Uranus to maintain and modify to the next generations!

CHIRON went into Aries Feb 18 for 9 years, through 2027. What a fabulous time for Aries! Chiron will heal him, teach him & show him how to teach, maybe get him into a business, maybe bring him a mate! He and Chiron could become partners in a new venture! Chiron in Aries wants you to have a better life right now! Right now is exactly Aries’ pace! Chiron commiserates all too well since he also carries a wound that won’t heal. Many Aries understand because many of them have had an accidental injury of some kind along the way, physical or a broken heart. Considering conditions in the world today, we will likely be grateful for a push from Aries. Aries inspires, get us going into brave new arenas! Chiron looks for ways to help make the new ways acceptable. So many matters need uplifting, many people need a boost in their courage, to know that someone is taking point and they can gather, have hope! Tremendous healing is needed. Most of all how to heal these matters is needed. Aries has refreshing ideas worth standing up for! Please constantly hold our brave healers in the Light.

Chiron will cover the very earliest degrees, 1 to almost 6°, of Aries this year. It will activate any factors you have in or very close to those degrees. See more

Chiron has been and will be traveling very closely to the same degrees as Uranus, the Aquarian planet, but in different signs! This has been going on since 2008 and continues through 2021. Chiron has become more Aquarian-like and Uranus has taken on some shamanistic qualities. See more The last 10 years, they connected in Pisces and Aries. Now there will be added flavor as Uranus enters Taurus, first a shift in the foundation, then, in time, a holding steady.

If you have Chiron in those degrees of Aries, you will be having your 51+/- year Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed, your teaching skills improved. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching and discoveries will be inspiring, especially about how our minds work. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too! Things are a lot different than they were 51 years ago!

SATURN builds from 13 to 29 Capricorn.

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


Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 13 to 27 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through February 20, 2020! There will be more traditional endeavors.

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

A Saturn Return in Capricorn can be a wee challenge for an Aries! Aries knows that rules were made to be broken, as much as Saturn/Capricorn knows they must be enforced, integrity intact! Aries is a creative inspiring action oriented, try-it-out-and-see sign! Law and order with some leniency makes sense. Otherwise we would all be the same, discoveries never made. Both are needed. Saturn can also make a safe place and time for Aries to explore. However, there are times when spontaneous action just is, just happens. It is the state of zero hindrance that makes the ultimate invention possible! Be wise and also let life happen. Aries doesn’t always think in terms of, oh God, I’m taking a chance. They simply respond to the spark! And there are times it’s a good darn thing they do! Yep. They do make mistakes, but 99 point, they have profound instincts. Plus, they recover quickly!

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

Saturn/Capricorn are earth to Aries Fire! Earth can put fire out or be the support for it, like for a campfire. Capricorn has things to do in a timely fashion and cherishes Aries workers. Aries is smart, fast, unafraid, and a great leader! Capricorn inspires Aries to get meaningful work done, build lifesaving structures, like after a disaster. Aries points out ways things can be done better. Capricorn makes sure there is a secure foundation. Cap needs to ask, let Aries know the deadlines, then get out of his way. No hovering. Check ins, yes. Aries is tough and Capricorns get more confidence seeing how Aries throw themselves into a job. Put your Aries mates on the new jobs, or they will get bored and find one themselves. Their phenomenal work gets them noticed, often have a rep and are in demand. You might just change roles, let them be the boss, and go with them! And you better keep up!

JUPITER moves from 14 Sagittarius to 22 Capricorn. Jupiter is a big fire planet, entered his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Jupiter stays in Sag the majority of 2019, until moving into Capricorn Dec 2.

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

Jupiter in Sag, double fire, can be fun as all get out for fiery Aries! What one doesn’t think of the other does. Jupiter has the luck, Aries is a daredevil and they get away with it. They take bets and win! Fast cars, fast horses, surfing anywhere! They travel swiftly, move on quickly. They separate happily, meet up later somewhere else or not. Both are independent. If they take up a cause together, Jupiter is holding meetings ana passing out pamphlets or handbills. Mars is out setting up the stage, gathering equipment from the locals. They can speak separately or team speak, or sponsor a speaker to be proud of! Jupiter may want to publish or stop at the University, but Aries is likely off on another venture, biking cross country, at an athletic program at a gym or starting another resort!

Jupiter in Capricorn makes work the most fun it ever was! You could be the visitor who is remembered for all the work you did! You might be a random traveler, a business consultant, the foreigner who was on a mission to help the people. Jupiter will help you jazz up your home, give you such good advice you can’t help doing it! They might volunteer and you join them to make some kind of profound difference. Don’t keep your lucky Jupiter charm. They need to travel, check out the territories. If you hire them, send them to the training seminars furthest away or send them to teach it! If they have too much routine, they will run away. Poof. Gone. Import/exports they are involved with might work well for you too. Their writings may inspire you to start an outstanding business newsletter or monthly report people count on. Jupiter can overdo, so know your personal limits. If you have had doldrums, Jupiter can cheer you up like a champ. You are encouraged because they act like you can do it, and it’s truth! See more 

Jupiter in Capricorn can exaggerate the rules, and Aries may quickly size up the scene and keep right on going. There may be a temporary alliance if Aries figures he needs a little structure for a while. Keep a loose rein. Share the info, no smothering with expectations ‘for his own good.’ Let Aries find his own way. Aries is a quick learner, maybe faster than you can deliver. Don’t be confused. Keep on giving as you can. If he chooses to be with you, remember he made that choice and it’s an honor. Be yourself and don’t be rushed. Aries may be looking to start a business and sees you have some of that expertise. S/he may be quite grateful for what you share, even when he is fidgety. Take frequent breaks outside if possible. When you are speaking, keep it tight and to the point. When they leave, it’s done. They aren’t always up for lengthy discussions afterwards. Trust that they got what they needed. If it is a personal relationship, that may or may not work for you. Be clear about your own needs. Let go if that’s best. Admire that good looking person from afar and wish them Godspeed. If it works well, how blessed!

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

If your Jupiter is in 14 Sag to 22 Capricorn, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. The experience you have will depend on how Jupiter is situated in your chart and how other current planetary positions apply to your chart or don’t. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, or could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and good marriages are possible.

Happy Birthdays, Dear Aries! Blessed be in your new year!

Spring Equinox Full Worm SuperMoon!

Wednesday March 20 at 6:43 PM Pacific, 0 Libra/Aries 09

1st of 2, Blue Moon to come! 0°, Mercury still Retrograde conjunct Neptune!

Aries 2019 First Full Moon Spring Equinox Ukraine

Beautiful Spring in the Ukraine Mountain ranges

Per Earthsky, this year, the March 2019, full SuperMoon, last of the three 2019 SuperMoons, comes less than 4 hours after the arrival of the March 20th equinox, making this the closest coincidence of the March equinox and full moon since March 20, 2000! Next time will be 11 years from now, in 2030. 

This will be the first of two Full Moons spanning Libra/Aries! This one is at the first degree, 0 Libra/Aries 09. The second is an AstroLogical ‘Blue Moon,’ the only 2019 Blue Moon! The April 20 Full Moon will be at the last degree, 29 Libra/Aries 07! This March Moon is a true Alpha time! We are at the first day of Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac, the first day of Spring! Since it spans Aries/Libra, we might say it is Alpha-Omega, the beginning and ‘end,’ since Aries is sunrise and Libra is sunset! Each of these Full Moons greets one of the two outer planets that have just changed signs! The first charges Chiron, the second charges Uranus!

This is the 5th and last Full Moon at 0 degrees! They were in Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, now Aries! Each has been a full arms open embrace to their sign! Sag started the Journey, Capricorn made it so, Aquarius shook the basket, Pisces sweetened the Dream! The last of the five is in Aries at Spring Equinox, new beginnings par excellence!

The Full Moon at Zero degree emphasizes the two recent sign changes! Sun is conjunct Chiron, now at 1° and semisextile Uranus at 0°! This is Sun’s first conjunction with Chiron in his new permanent sign! Sun is welcoming him into Aries and giving him a first day of Spring super solar charge! Sun is a fiery ‘planet,’ so with Chiron now in fiery Aries, they are more easy with each other. This charge will be transferred to Uranus as well because Chiron and Uranus have been traveling side by side the last 10 years and have formed a bond. It’s as if they are traveling as one. Uranus has been in Aries the last 7 years, so receives Sun’s energy quite comfortably. In fact, can’t hurt a bit, he’s quite calmer in Taurus, not used to it, so probably needs a little familiar boost. Sun also picks up some quickie healing tips from Chiron. Chiron’s info is hot off the griddle, fresh, untainted, innovative, yet to be tested. It’s true it’s been 51 years since he was in Aries before and times have changed, but he has been watching from the signs he’s been in along the way and things have developed apace. See more about Chiron into Aries! See more about Uranus into Taurus 

Moon is all by herself all the way on the other side of the chart in Libra! This chart pattern is called a Bucket. She is the ‘handle’ of the Bucket. You could say she’s out scouting for the best relationship connections, alliances, possible, paving the way, assessing cultural formalities to be respected. Or she’s the receiver, radar for what’s coming from that direction, canary in the goldmine. You could say she’s the lead of the whole group, or the tail of the dragon cleaning up any messes that need neutralizing, making deals to secure their gains, making the space behind safe. One way or the other, or all of the above, she’s vital to the operation. Balance is key. Aries is less concerned, if at all, but Libra’s talent is to sense the nuances and keep us all quickly informed. She’s scanning the furthest reaches currently possible. 

Moon is off center from Uranus, but in Libra she always knows when there is a change in the valence. She tends to be culturally correct, prefers calm mediation. Uranus is always a changemaker, and she can tell. He has a certain charge that never sleeps. In Taurus he can make change so gently and calmly you don’t even know it happened. She knows that too. If it isn’t for the greater good, she may warn about it, but it may be hard to make anyone believe her. Naw, that can’t be true, never. Yet he’s in progress. If it’s a change she likes, a good glass of wine from the cellar will be in order. 

Mars is off center from Jupiter. They can get in a lot of trouble! Mars in Taurus can prod Jupiter who lives for dares and loves to play. Mars in Taurus can lag and drag and drive Sag crazy! Sag wants to play and who ever heard of Mars wanting to just lay about?! But in Taurus he can. No matter how cunning and persuasive Sag can be with is big stories and splendid opinions, it has little effect. Mars will leave Jupiter behind in two or three days and the cat and mouse play is over. Oh well. There are few times Jupiter fails to impress so he may be disappointed. Mars didn’t get his way either. He may have seemed too common, or unwilling to take a chance. C’est la vie. Maybe in a couple years….

What Mars did get done was trine Saturn then Pluto. Some great work was done. The price was right and it was timely. Could have involved construction or real estate, stone work, restoration. Some of the people in charge were quite impressed and more connections made. Follow up from time to time. Hire that person for more work!

Venus however, squares him and is probably a little grumpy with him or ignores him. He’s not her type. She’s exotic in Aquarius; he’s common in Taurus. They have way different kinds of intelligence. She won’t pay him what he’s worth, or can’t, at least not now. Wait for a bit, maybe sometime after Mercury goes direct/forward. She in Aquarius may simply be gone to other realms. But if she’s working on a community project and it’s one Mars favors, they could work together after all. She’s likely to get a publishing or travel grant soon. Could be a scholarship and she leaves the area. Stay in touch, but don’t expect miracles. Be ready to let go gracefully if need. 

Mercury in Pisces is stilllllll Retrograde until March 28. The day before the Feb 19 Full Snow SuperMoon, was Mercury’s first conjunction with Neptune. Now he is slowly moving to make his Rx conjunction with Neptune March 24, just before Mercury goes into his 8 day station (stand still). Neptune is the old man of the Sea, the Pisces planet, also IN Pisces! That’s a whole lot of intuition, dreamtime insights. Words may seem almost ridiculous at times and can mean so less than the feelings. But to put the mysteries of the Universe into words is a sweet feat! There are times the masters of words can make you feel you are right there, present in what they are writing about and you forget you are listening or reading. You ‘wake’ up and to your surprise you are right where you are! 

Mercury goes direct (forward) on March 28. He makes the third/final conjunction with Neptune April 2 Pacific time, just before the April 5 New Moon! Mercury is so curious about the ‘unseen.’ Mercury himself is quite logical, visual, so Pisces and Neptune are like an immersion experience for him. He uses his senses more. He wants to put it into words in some way so others can see it too! He talks with Neptune and watches for reactions, nuances. Neptune’s visions are important, should not to be lost in the dream. Mercury is the documentarian of precious perception. See more about the Retrograde!

Mercury is retrograding away from his second sextile with Saturn, and Saturn has moved past his sextile with Neptune for now, to return mid-June. Saturn is presently holding close to Pluto, but retrogrades himself and doesn’t make the conjunction with Pluto until Jan 12, 2020. That and Mercury 
now at 18 Pisces, and Venus, Mars and Jupiter all at 23 degrees, brings us to discuss the important set of upcoming aspects. Mercury ties in with the Pluto chain of events. Our thinking now has relevance. Pay attention to shifts in your awareness. It’s not even so important what you think, but how you think. Venus, Mars and Jupiter are tied to the early 2020 Saturn/Pluto chain of events. Record and work your goals. Find out how to get where you want to go. There are tremendous possibilities!


An impressive sequence of unusual aspects started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter/Saturn with Neptune are at 18 Pisces. The coming nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs!

Pluto is now at 22 Capricorn, the degree where Saturn, potently in his own sign, will catch up with Pluto Jan 12, 2020! Pluto will be at 23 when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential election because they are precisely astrologically linked! Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

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

Be strong and steady as she goes!

Aries New Moon!

Friday April 5 at 1:50 AM Pacific, 15 Aries 17  

7th Mid Sign New Moon, Bowl Chart, My Stars! Pisces Mercury Direct! 

Aries New Moon 2019 Milky Way Bluebonnets Jason Weingart

Magical Milky Way over Bluebonnets! Photographer Jason Weingart calls this magnificent image ‘Deep in the Heart of Texas!’ Order at his site! 

Just a little fire in the belly! No matter that you can’t see them or they are barely a crescent peeping into or out of the New Moon spot, Sun and Moon are having a sweet rendezvous out there in the heavens! Sun is supercharging, and Aries, a hot fire sign, is all in favor! Moon is sizzling all that great Spirit food on the front burner and is raring to go! The babies are rocking in the cradle, the little kids are wild and the teens are more independent than usual! Lovers are happy dancing. Lambs are springtime frolicing!  

Mercury is no longer retrograde nor in station (standing still), and is finishing his three part cycle April 16, only a few days now to put the final touches in place. He made the last magical conjunction with Neptune in Pisces on the 2nd, just before this Aries New Moon. Endings, completions and dreams are on our minds, New Moon making glorious new flowers! Mercury’s three last aspects show in this chart. On the 7th Mercury sextiles Saturn, finishing up some key tasks, your work is paying off, sign the contracts. The 10th Mercury sextiles Pluto, the finances and certain relationships have worthy potentials. Mercury is closing in on his square to Jupiter the 11th. It may not all be true or possible right now. Could be exaggerated gossip or slander, but still, we are called to seek the next adventure! See more about the Pisces Mercury Retrograde!

The New Moon is the last of the 15° New Moons that started in October with Libra, seven in a row! 15° is the mid of any sign, the turning point! In the Hindi Dwadasama system, 15 to 17.5° are the degrees holding a sub influence of the opposite sign, in this case Libra! All three of this year’s Aries lunar events have this Aries/Libra crossover! Aries is independent; Libra is cooperative. Aries is self; Libra is others. They are both fighters. Aries is physical, will use fists if necessary; Libra is wits and courtrooms, negotiators and mediators, peacemakers if possible. Aries shows Libra that being nice doesn’t always get the job done. Stand up and be counted, for Pete’s sake! Libra shows that leaving, abandoning or offending with bristly shouted opinions doesn’t always work either. We seek to come to know each other. You don’t corner your Aries, or smother them with sweets. Yuk. Aries often only really needs to ask. A please doesn’t hurt. Nor do you yell at someone trying to help you. Put your listening ears on. Sharing can touch your heart.

But. A champion is a champion! Someone needs to stand up, even if it begins with only one person! It’s time to offend someone, to make them look, and listen even if they disagree or especially if they disagree! Just because the sleeping masses have a big opinion, the power of numbers doesn’t make them right. New beginnings must start from a seed and be tended to flourish. Show people that they can run, they can get up that hill. Sun figures that’s a no brainer. Moon might need a little convincing, she likes her apple pie, breads, cheesecake. But if it’s women or children’s rights, she’s on it! Together they will get people excited. Just a few words well placed can make a huge difference. Seeds need the right soil and she’s a clever nurturer.

Now, there’s going to be a little bridge to cross, wall to climb. Sun and Moon square Saturn then Pluto. They will be tested. Sun squares Saturn the 10th, Pluto on the 13th. What is too heavy to carry will be left behind. Get your support team experts in place as you address formidable blockages. Could be rocks, could be toxic. There could be injustice, abuse of power, deep grief. Saturn and Pluto are in Capricorn. Protect your property from damage or theft. Don’t be in denial about your career, others on the job. Keep reasonable records of events and achievements in case you need them later. In this period, work with emails, signed papers, rather than handshakes. In spite of what difficulties there may be, remember that Saturn wants to make things right in the long term; Pluto wants to heal. Certain things may just take time. Don’t confront in such a way that they react by digging in their heels just to protect themselves and don’t even hear you. Keep it on an even keel so everyone continues to listen. It will be easier on our nerves and take a lot less time. Change consequences to successes.

As I have said before, New Moons are a regenerative time. Moon is at the end of her 27/28 day cycle. She has been through all the signs, gathering information, giving as she can as she has gone along. She makes lots of adjustments, each sign so different and specialized. She takes the pulse of the people from all walks of life. When she meets Sun, he sees what she has accumulated – awareness of accomplishments, shortcomings, needs that need meeting. Sun floods her with Light energy and she is restored. He appreciates her perceptiveness and caring and is himself restored by her faith in him.

This is a good time to make assessments, put things into perspective. Keep these things in mind as you face challenges. The outcome  may surprise everyone!

Mars, the Aries planet, has just further activated Chiron and Uranus in their new signs! Mars is the planet of new! Being in Gemini now, it’s time to tell the stories, make connections! Chiron is excited to be the new champion of healing and teaching the ways to do it! Uranus will be making a difference in Earth affairs. There will be more awareness of climate changes, environmental remedies. Individuals will take on a one world approach. Some governments may cause delays, but others and many powerful private parties will opt for more long term footage. Mars gets the Word out, is the herald of a new dawn of creation! 

The 3 STARS dance continues! Each time since the October New Moon, all the New Moons since being at 15°, the same stars have been activated but by different types of links! This feisty Aries New Moon makes a challenging square with the renowned Fixed Star Sirius at 14 Cancer! Next month’s Taurus New Moon will be at 14 Taurus making a sextile, so it won’t be entirely over yet. Sirius is the Dogstar in Canis Major, the brightest star in the heavens. It is said to give honor, renown, wealth, ardor, faithfulness, devotion, passion and resentment, and makes its natives custodians, curators and guardians. It also gives danger of dog bites! Woof! Aries doesn’t let sleeping dogs lie. If there are any misuses of power Aries will be around to call Goliath out. If they have gotten complacent, he’ll give the bed a good kick as he walks by. Wake up! Rise and shine!

Moon and Sun are square Sirius’s opposite star Vega at 15 Capricorn. Next month’s New Moon at 14 Taurus will trine Vega. Much smoother. Vega is Lyra’s bright star. She puts beauty, music and arts in our lives. Aries has no time for standing still for harp players. To them music is the sound of a well tuned engine, or a rousing concert! Remember that when you are sending invitations or making the wedding plans, LOL! This is so brief about the stars. Look up more online about their histories, lore, data! Go to spiritual sites for deeper discussions.   

Again, not only is the Dogstar involved, but so is the hunter himself! The New Moon is more happily sextile Orion’s star Rigel at 16 Gemini. Aries likes weapons and Orion is the hunter. Works for him. You might guess Rigel has mixed reviews. Mythologically it was thought to be where the scorpion stung Orion causing Orion’s death. Oops. About Rigel and the Sun, Robson says: Bold, courageous, insolent, unruly temper, hasty actions, bloodshed, many enemies, great good fortune, military success. Shall we run or stay? Elsbeth Ebertin noted a connection of Rigel to the Sun and Moon, in charts of several world record pilots, leading to sudden difficulties in the carrying out of planned enterprises resulting in failures to reach the set target. Sextiles offer opportunities. Aries is adept at quickly picking up the pieces in an emergency. He can astonishingly turn the tables between life and death. Maybe he’ll save the King!

Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently part of:

As I said in the Full Moon section above, an impressive sequence of unusual aspects started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter/Saturn with Neptune are at 18 Pisces. The coming nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs! Saturn conjunct Pluto is precisely linked to the powerful aspect, same degree and sign, most close to the 2020 Presidential Elections. Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

At this New Moon Mercury, no longer retrograde, again stands at 18 degrees Pisces! It is sextile the Ecliptic point, conjunct the mid-June Neptune point, trine the Transit of Mercury point! All these are excellent connections! Mercury is spreading the word. If you made Oct 2018 notes, review them, or check your appt book to see what was important then. Compare that with what you have gotten done since then and revise your goals accordingly. Expand your plans as you anticipate the possibilities!

Pluto is now at 23 Capricorn, just a degree from where Saturn, potently in his own sign, will catch up with Pluto Jan 12, 2020! Pluto will be at 23 when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential election because they are precisely astrologically linked! Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

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

All the planets in this chart are in less than half the chart! This is called a Bowl chart ~ it collects, ponders and pours. Jupiter, the first planet, has had us in training, learning more about learning. Mars, our Aries planet, leads the way, spreading the good word in Gemini. This Bowl has especially strong focus in two of its signs, three planets in Pisces and three in Aries, the last and first signs of the zodiac! Collect your dreams, hold them consciously. Release what no longer serves. Prioritize keepers into place for easy access for Aries that they may be acted on right now! Let Aries ram them forward in divine perfection! 

Gather your threads, be clear in our greater purpose, use your instinct.

AstroLogical Blue Moon! 2nd in Libra/Aries! Full Pink Moon! 

Friday April 19 Full Pink Moon at 4:12 AM Pacific, 29 Libra/Aries 07! 

Beauty in Blue ~ Sweet in Pink, Fixed Royal Star Regulus the King!

Aries 2019 2nd Full Moon Rose French artist Cebarre

Sweet ‘Rose’ by prolific French artist Cebarre 

BLUE MOONS! A seasonal blue moon is when there are 4 Full Moons in a season. The third of those is called a Blue Moon. There can be two Full or New Moons in a month and the second is called a Blue Moon. This is the second one of two Full Moons in the same SIGN, an AstroLogical ‘Blue Moon,’ the only 2019 Blue Moon! This is the second of two Full Moons spanning Libra/Aries! The first one was March 20, at the first degree, 0 Libra/Aries 09. The April 20 Full Moon will be at the last degree, 29 Libra/Aries 07! Last chance, make it good!

These emphasize the beginning and ending of their Signs. Take notes at the beginning, layout your goals, a few days before the 19th schedule to see how you have done, take care of anything that still needs doing! These Moons in the same signs emphasize their principles – Libra/Aries. Aries is independent, calls his own shots. Libra reminds we aren’t here alone, but are impinged on by others and we upon them. Sometimes we are not helpful to each other, and that’s ok. We seek harmony if agreement isn’t possible. Other times collaboration enhances our quality of life and we are grateful. Many times the whole is greater than the sum of its parts! 

Sun and Moon have just a little more emphasis this time because they are trine and sextile the fixed star Regulus the King! Regulus was considered to be the leader of the Four Royal Stars of the ancient Persian monarchy, the Four Guardians of Heaven. It is associated with Raphael, the Healing Archangel, Watcher of the North. As of 2012 it changed signs from fiery Leo to earthy Virgo. We have shifted from Father Sun’s sign to the healing Mother Goddess. Regulus still stands at the Lion’s Heart, but in Virgo (sign of nurses, midwifery) it is now more tending as a peer than dominating. Leo the Lion’s story though, has always included magnificent Light Giving and a generous Heart. Even in Virgo, it is still at the Lion’s Heart. Egyptians knew Virgo as Isis, the Goddess of Fertility. Pagans called her the Virgin – Ceres, Demeter, Persephone, that Catholicism translated to the Virgin Mary. Aries fire and Libra air are geometrically in harmony with this now Earth Star. She has respectable skills that keep them well and smooth their daily affairs. She is the technician to their interactions.

Sun and Moon have just passed Venus at 28 Pisces. They are reminded to let Soul quality Love be their guide. She’s the one that makes the difference with her understanding, compassion. She adds grace and flow. The charge in a courtroom case is a little less intense; there is a little less to prove, it’s easier to listen without feeling you have lost power. She’s more gentile and even a small smile changes the tone. Aries’ colors are red and white, pink. Libra is pastels art and lovely florals. Venus is Libra’s planet. The powerful independent Aries leader and the gentile mediators, Libra/Venus, master the forces to bring Peace. The ultimate Peace Rose. 

Sun and Moon have also recently come from a trine and sextile with Jupiter. Jupiter laughed with them, brought them big news from far places, brought them hope and perspective, taught them a lot to be proud of. Sun in Aries felt like he could win the race and Mama Moon was delighted to make a new friend, try out some foreign recipes, to learn and live big!  This time they left him before he moved on. They are willing to gamble on the new plans. They are both clever, even more so at the last degree of their signs, so undoubtedly will successfully enhance what Jupiter had to offer and inspired them to do. Tomorrow they will be leading the way in new signs! The big wheel keeps on turnin’!

At the 0° Libra/Aries Full Moon, Sun greeted and charged up Chiron newly in Aries. This mature 29° Full Moon, Sun is on the brink of joining Uranus newly in Taurus! If Jupiter’s ideas were big, they were but a small preparation to the planetary wide ideas Uranus will enlighten Sun with! And brilliant Sun will be like the fuel in the Rocket! Uranus makes things come alive, electrifies the synapses! The ideas in Aries will be anchored and maintained, amplified and further enhanced in their new setting. They will be simplified and put to good use community wide. Further research and inventions will spring from their baseline! Mercury, no longer in his retrograde cycle, freshly in the Full Moon sign Aries, will spread the word quickly and feedback will supply more fresh ideas. One to the next it will keep going! Great timing!

Neptune can hear Mars in Gemini chattering and nattering from a long ways off,  coming to make the square. Mars can be pesky or wake up old Neptune, probably both. Neptune is used to being bigger than most anything that comes his way, takes it in stride. But Mars is silly fearless, does a spontaneous third eye zap, and whadda you know, Neptune is all ears! Mars better be quick and alert though, or an inadvertent tsunami may sweep him away! If the day is calm and Neptune is bored, up to hearing the latest, they may have a long exchange. Clever Gemini has a lot to say and Neptune is millennia wise. Mars can quickly piece the meaning of the parts together beyond his wildest imagination only to bring a further rhapsody of exchange. Neptune finds a shift in his essence with this new fuel. Mars Initiations quickly trigger releases that allow surprising advances into the future! This could just go on forever…. Just be a little careful or your fire may get unceremoniously put out.

Again and still, Saturn is with Pluto, only 3 degrees apart now. Saturn will retrograde April 29 and they will gradually fade apart. They are close but don’t make their connection until Jan 12, 2020! That conjunction is part of a long cycle…

An impressive sequence of unusual aspects started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter/Saturn with Neptune are at 18 Pisces. The coming nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs!

Neptune is now almost 18° Pisces, will retrograde on Summer Solstice June 21 at 18°! It is precisely tuned in to the Jupiter/Saturn aspects to it at that time, the Ecliptic event of Oct 2018 and Transit of Mercury retrograde Eclipse Nov 11! Neptune brings sensitivity to and understanding of these major events. It sees the links between them, passing the thread through the eye of the needle of one to the next and beyond. We are magically connected to higher realms.

Pluto is now at 23 Capricorn, within a degree of where Saturn, potently in his own sign, will catch up with Pluto Jan 12, 2020! Pluto will be at 23 when the 4 planet Capricorn stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential election because they are precisely astrologically linked! Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

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

Secure the ground gained through these important 2018 to 2020 events!

Mercury Retrograde Pisces 2019 Big Sur Coast Bixby Bridge

An epic coastal curvy view along California’s Big Sur at Bixby Bridge, Big Sur Creek.

This is the first Mercury Retrograde of the three of 2019! All three involve water signs. In the Annual Newsletter I wrote: Pisces, the sign of the magnificent oceans, magic and the Great Mystery! From addicts to saviors, muddlement to acute insight and psychic accuracy. Being lost, to dedication forever led by celestial music.  

About Retrogrades!  

Whether hiking mountain switchbacks or driving a small zig zag road along a ragged coastline, what a journey! What amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. What’s behind is out of sight, a memory; what’s ahead is a mystery! Inner bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. Promontories give us visions of the future, longings for more! Each gives us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch.

Uniquely, this Mercury Rx 3 part cycle is tied with two outer planet sign changes! It starts Feb 18, the first day of Pisces 2019, the day Chiron goes into Aries its final time, the day before the Full Snow SuperMoon! Mercury starts Retrograde March 5, the day before Uranus goes into Taurus! Chiron’s change happens every 51 years, while Uranus is on an 84 year cycle! These are significant changes.

Chiron has been in Pisces, so Mercury’s job is to keep that Pisces healing in our minds, the spiritual component of us present, while this shift is in progress. The starting point is 16 Pisces. Mercury will go forward to 29 Pisces, the last degree of the last sign of the zodiac! It will turn, Retrograde there March 5, and go back to 16 Pisces on March 28. It turns forward, Direct, then, covering the same degrees the third time, completing the entire cycle April 16!

Since this focus in Pisces starts on the day Chiron goes into Aries, leaving Pisces, it seems we are not to forget those last degrees in Pisces. Chiron is going forward, and Aries is the sign of fresh and new! It’s easy to jump into the new excitement. Mercury will be like an archive of insights, will keep Chiron’s tools at hand and offer them up when needed. Mercury is generally logical. In Pisces it’s less fettered by logic and quickly responds without necessarily thinking. You learn to trust your instincts more while it’s in Pisces. That will be most helpful while Chiron is on new ground, now an Aries first responder type!

Every Retrograde is unique, per the signs, their planets, the connections made with other planets during their retrograde cycle, and, of course, the connections it makes, or doesn’t, with your personal chart! Mercury Retrogrades have three part cycles. First is the part leading up to the Retrograde station. We’re on fresh ground, curious. Second is the Rx period when it goes ‘back’ over the part leading up to the Rx. We see things from an opposite point of view. Adjustments are made. Third and last is the part when it turns Direct, ‘forward’ again, covering that same ground the third time! We get three chances. At first we get all things in order we possibly can. Second changes and revisions are made. Third, we tidy up, polish things up, complete and present it to the world! A Station is the pause at the retrograde and direct turns. Mercury literally appears to stand still for 8 days! We mull it over, focus, anchor what we want to keep.

Retrogrades can be in two signs. This one is in Pisces. We all have Pisces in our charts, so take note where Pisces is for you. Mercury is communications, logic. It speaks/listens, is quicksilver distracted/intent when interested. It has to do with our lungs and breath, how we touch one another’s Spirits either with hands or words. We can be angry, comforting, whisper, hypnotize, sing lullabies to the baby, chat the neighborhood gossip, share vital life changing information.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers, or do everything to make it possible for that to happen so it doesn’t fall through. Escrows can fall through. They don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Sign any contract changes and make sure they do too. Get copies, save and backup.

Mercury Rx specific to Pisces. Specific? Pisces doesn’t usually do specific, but, when psychic, they can be deadly accurate! However, Pisces stuff can include changing the music, the date for the meditation event, gallery location. Pisces is the new sound machine and lighting. The cruise is cancelled or you change the itinerary. Insurance benefits, interest rates may change. You fall out of love with your belief system, and in a few days the new one isn’t for you either. Your schedule is forgotten when the surf’s up. Be sure to get receipts (not a Pisces thing) for the new wetsuit or snorkel gear, surfboard, sail. Shipbuilding materials will become unavailable or a different choice made. Your definition of beauty becomes less common, more ethereal. Art you like today becomes passe tomorrow.

How to fix the film, get the seafood for the restaurant, where to go to meditate? What is your Spiritual standing, what are your beliefs? Which water gear to buy, which boat, seaside motel? Should I be a lifeguard, scuba or surf instructor? Do I really believe that vision? What about all that debris in the ocean, what technique or organization can take of that? Save the whales, dolphins, orcas? Help the homeless or invest in coastal real estate? And we haven’t talked about climate change, rising water temps and heights. There is so much to be done. Maybe you will find some answers during this Retrograde.

Pisces will make music, take you to a magical place, sell you fresh fish, buy you a surfboard. They will meditate with you, make films, help you disappear, save your life from invisible pathogens. Thinking can bring drinking. At worst they will be the helpless hopeless victim/martyr addict, sinners. At best they are the most compassionate Angel you ever met, one of God’s own miracles. Keep connected with your sponsor; get help right away. Some things are hard to do alone. The rest of us are mushing around in the middle wanting, praying, to be a better person.

Pisces is more than the apparent physical events. It’s the sign of Spirit, of Holy Union, Beingness, Soul. In these often uncommon zones, there is illusion since we can’t see in the way we always have. We sense presence. We get lost, scared, even lonely. We think we are lost  because we just don’t ‘know’ anymore or for awhile. Wait, concentrate on awareness, how you feel. There can be confusion that takes us from our standard responses, opens us to other possibilities on new ground. It really is ok not to know. It is a useful state of consciousness that helps us to contemplate new concepts, adjust to their existence, add the facet of them that is our part to carry! But don’t expect them to remain the same as we grow with them each day! Pisces if the sign of Morph! Evolution is a living thing. Let yourself be free to ooze on into the future. Creation can be violent as a tsunami, watching a becalmed glassy sea, elegant, humble, always intriguing and magical! It can be comprehensible, or something we merge with that we surrender too and just go with it until we understand if we ever do. It can happen in a fraction of a second. Might take aeons to perfect.

Mercury is naturally connected with Gemini airy mind and Virgo daily earth services, both logical signs. In Pisces, Mercury is in the sign opposite Virgo. Virgo administers the meds very carefully, does accounting, writes cleverly, is a consummate craftsperson that is renowned for excellent technique and detail. Pisces is tuned to subtle details, a shift in the air. They go by what they feel and dream. Mercury wanders in this sign. Many things don’t matter so much as in ordinary daily thinking. Their attention floats, picking up nuances, tones, whispers, imagination. What does matter is how you succeed as a human with compassion, loving kindness, encourage others to believe in themselves. Mercury Rx here drifts among us, making assessments, seeing what needs doing, how it can be done – often so subtly no one knows you were there. Change seemingly comes from out of the blue… Ideas may be put into sound, art, an illustration, image, an imaginary story.

In Pisces, Mercury squares Gemini. Gemini is known for flitting like a butterfly from flower to flower. Some disrespect that ability; gardeners are grateful their veggie plants get pollinated! Gemini is the vital human to human connections, siblings, neighbors. Pisces is human to Soul, God, Spirit. Both of them are seeking quality connections. A square challenge here is the difference of mediums. Gemini is airy, logical; Pisces is watery, mysty. Gemini can’t see through the mist. Pisces doesn’t function literally/linearly. It takes a wee bit of time for them each to adjust to the other’s modality. Each senses the other has importance, so get frustrated when it isn’t easy at first. Go easy, take it a bit at a time.

Aspects formed 3 times during Mercury Pisces Retrograde. See the Timetable below.

There are four! Foremost is the lead aspect of the Retrograde cycle, Mercury conjunct Neptune, Pisces’s own planet! It started the whole cycle on its beginning day Feb 18! Mercury is usually quite a talker, but in Pisces may spend more than usual time listening, absorbing, feeling, even just wandering, observing. Rather than link to link reporting, there may be a standing back, getting a more comprehensive account of what is seen. Neptune is not always so easy to instantly label. He may be enjoying that space deliberately, or simply be his sometimes shy nature that prefers quiet solitude. That is not usually Mercury’s perch. There are many mysteries to explore, unravel, and that makes Mercury more curious than ever. Fascinating challenge. There is much Neptune would love to have more people know about and understand. Mercury is good at articulating visions and ideas so the average person can get it! Neptune’s visions are important, not to be lost in dream. Mercury is the documentarian of precious perception.

Mercury sextiles both planets in Capricorn, Saturn and Pluto! This is a total switch from Neptune. Capricorn is the hard core last earth sign, sign of stones, ice, glass, concrete! Saturn is his own planet, and Pluto is not to be messed with! You better make sense, have your links in a row, be able to stand up under questioning. Sextiles offer opportunities. If Mercury looks credible, perhaps intuitive Pisces will bring him through by hitting the precise mark Saturn and Pluto are looking for. There is a deeper part of each of them that is wanting much more than money. But it’s good to start by mixing both parts of your proposition together, preferably how one part can pay for the other! They might need you to do some advertising for them. The job might be small, but some potent words and placement could make all the difference in their business. Or it could be a huge job and you think twice about taking it on. Take a deep breath and see what you can do. Remember, Mercury type efforts most go awry during Mercury Retrograde. Even though this is a positive sextile, I would way over estimate your fee. This time it is better to go by the hour than by the job. The client themselves are likely to change horses midstream and it’s their choice, not yours. So the positive here is you get more hours. Put the agreed on hourly fee in your contract and everybody sign it. They could request you do some researching. That definitely needs to be paid time too.

Mercury squares Jupiter in his own sign Sagittarius. That is often not so tough, but can be when it is! Mercury can talk too much, making Jupiter crazy when he’s focused in a certain direction. They can chat too much and not get the job done. In Pisces it can be confusing and Jupiter has big imagination, so they may need to just back up and start over though the cat is already out of the bag. Both are story tellers, Mercury short, Jupiter long. Might not pay for Mercury to try to publish Jupiter’s book right now. Not the best time to make travel decisions or school/instructor decisions. Truth itself is questioned. Both planets and signs can be naive at times. Scams are afoot; guard your friends. Be careful about libel. Clarify right away. Faith is overwhelmed by distracting questions. But. If Jupiter is right on, and not being recognized, Mercury could come up with a breakthrough channel to the core and put Jupiter on the map, finally credited as he should be! Jupiter can be out in the boonies of philosophy while Mercury is right here in town getting the word out, sell, sell, selling! In Pisces?! Sure! When he believes because he has ‘seen,’ he can be inspiring and invincible!

Pisces Mercury with Uranus newly in Taurus

Uranus is Mercury’s wild card friend. They are each communicators – Mercury mind, Uranus genius. Mercury is enthralled with the amazing array of ideas Uranus concocts out of thin air! He knows he’s hearing only the half of it. Volumes are communicated on into dawn! Mercury has a million questions! Uranus can uplift the perspective, sometimes bringing Mercury to the height of perception! Uranus is challenged to satisfy this psychically insightful questioner! Uranus has been closely tied with Chiron the entire time Chiron was traversing Pisces! They have each taken on a bit of the other, a camaraderie has been established. So Mercury in Pisces is more easy with Uranus than when Mercury was in other signs. Mercury instinctually realizes this may be the chance of a lifetime!

On the other hand, Uranus has more patience in Taurus, but he is still way ahead of Mercury and at times may get bored quickly with Mercury chatter, no matter how clever it is. Might be good to connect several different times for less time. Mercury can find Taurus a little slow for his taste, yet he can be surprised by Taurus when one of those awesome things Taurus has been thinking about suddenly is complete and pops up! And a terrific idea it is, all the details worked out! So Mercury continues to check in. Mercury finds himself thinking on a larger scale and is alert to how to get more people on board. See more about the Uranus sign change

Pisces has mixed feelings about Uranus. He knows Uranus can disturb the valence at the drop of a hat. Uranus brings quakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, lightning shocks. Pisces can be excited at the time, aware of nature’s own magnificent terrifying cycles, and also be in great mourning for the destruction, loss of life. Change on this scale can clear the way for many people at once, to forge a new life more powerful than what was, up to date, a better chance to deal with climate change effectively. Pisces, so aware of suffering, is glad some of that old suffering is over. Uranus is the planet of being ahead of its time. People find themselves inventing new systems for better living for themselves and our planet.

Uranus going into Taurus is comfortable for Pisces. Taurus is restful, steady, gentle, usually kindly. Pisces can be easily frightened, so these slower moves are a relief. There is time to take a look, get acquainted. Uranus is the humanitarian inventor, not so concerned with local matters unless his work is about them. Just know that your changes at a local level can be applied to many small regions or be micro models that can be applied to larger regions!

Full Frost Moon!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

New Moon!

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

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

New Moon Sagittarius 2018 Milky Way Yellowstone

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mercury Conjunct Venus Retrograde 2018 Face Cup Fingers Flowers

The Mercury Mind Combined with Venus Art! What a Cup of Tea!

About retrogrades! 

Whether ascending or descending, what a journey! What amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. What’s behind is out of sight, a memory, what’s ahead is a mystery! Bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. They give us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch. In this case, having two planets dancing, you may be a bit dizzy and overwhelmed! At times one is going forward while the other is going backward, and vice versa!

Every Retrograde is unique, per the signs, the planet, the connections made with other planets during their retrograde cycle.

Venus, Libra’s own planet is first! Her complete cycle spans Sep 2 to Dec 17! Mercury follows, his complete cycle Oct 28 to Dec 24, Christmas Eve. Venus goes direct, forward Nov 16 as Mercury starts his retrograde the very same day in Pacific time! Venus starts in her own sign Libra, goes forward into Scorpio, turns Rx in Scorpio. She is predominantly in Scorpio. Mercury starts in Scorpio, goes forward into Sagittarius, retrogrades in Sagittarius, predominantly in Sag! Not only are these Rxs linked back to back, but both planets spend time in Scorpio, making it the pivotal sign between them.

Three signs! Venus establishes awareness of the value of Libra and Scorpio, both relationship signs. She whispers sweet things to Mercury the Messenger! He can’t resist spreading the word, thinks and thinks about what she said as he goes along. Each time he tells the story it is a little bit different, maybe a bit bigger too, LOL! He uses Scorpio wisdom to jump start Sagittarius. Sag wants the meaning of things, especially those things! He makes plans for it to come true! Where Scorpio, knowing the darker side, doesn’t alway trust, Sagittarius trusts Scorpio to remove the greatest encumbrances. Sag has faith all will become well no matter what. He is an excellent Pathfinder and the best ways will be found! He’s good at finding them.

Venus Retrograde Oct 5, Direct Nov 16 Pacific!

Venus Retrogrades from 10 Scorpio 50 back to 25 Libra Oct 5 to Nov 16. The whole three part cycle starts Sep 3, finishes Dec 17. Venus is in her own sign Libra loving beauty, gracing relationships, making introductions, dancing, appraising and balancing values, organizing gatherings. Venus in Scorpio wants more. More return on investment, a deeper relationship, beauty is not required. She depends on her inborn charisma to get her through the dark scary places and dares to go there. Do not underestimate her. Her love is a healing all its own.

Venus retrograde hostesses the Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic and the remarkable 10 DAY sequence that event starts! She is retrograde at 0 Scorpio when the conjunction occurs. The next day she is back in her sign Libra, rebalancing relationships that are quickly going through stunning changes! She connects us with specialist shamans that open gates to future healing. Your relationship with yourself changes. As Uranus returns to Aries Nov 6, Venus is on the spot, helping him renew or establish new connections. She helps the Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon bring ideas to the surface to be linked far and wide. She is at Jupiter’s side Nov 8 as he shifts from Scorpio to Sagittarius, spreading the word that he will be visiting soon, showing the value of his teachings! She knows the anthropological factors that back up what he says.

Being retrograde, Venus goes back to connect any people conduits still needing to be made. The connections are necessary for Mercury Retrograde to go back to share all the exciting information that has been scooped and gathered – especially about the Pluto/Ecliptic event! Libra and Scorpio both are people oriented signs. Libra is social, often holds gatherings in behalf of a cause. It has charm, grace, and understands local and international etiquette. Libra is often involved with anthropology, museums, world arts, plays and symphonies. Scorpio knows your secrets and hopes to make $ with you, love with you, or heal you from the inside out! They are masterful at transformation, have remarkable recovery powers! Mercury will be in Scorpio twice while Venus is, so its a direct transference, specifically when Mercury conjuncts Venus Oct 15! You might connect with a kiss!

Venus makes no aspects during her retrograde cycle. Mercury makes only two aspects during both their entire cycles and both those aspects are to VENUS! Sep 3 Mercury sextiles Venus during the first of the three phases at 25 Leo/Libra 33. They conjunct Oct 15! These back to back retrogrades are indeed linked!

Classic Venus Rx carefuls are don’t expect new relationships to be forever. Be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Better to wait on beautification projects ie remodels, painting your home that color, purchasing a home, new wardrobes, related investments, cosmetic surgery, hair color changes. MAKE BACKUPS OF ALL YOUR DESIGN WORK AS YOU GO ALONG during Venus Rx, but especially during Mercury Rx!

Remember, where our attention goes, our energy flows! We don’t mind when good things come back to us – especially in Venus Rx! A retrograde can find the favorite sweater we misplaced, an old sweetheart may return (be cautious), a beautiful design may continue to be revised, to get better and better! Breaking up is hard to do in Venus Rx. It’s just not over yet and may be fully saved though least expected. Focus on the positives.

Mercury Retrograde Nov 16, Direct Dec 6 Pacific!

Venus asks ‘Who Loves you Baby?’ Mercury says ‘What?!’ It’s down to love and money and whether you sign the papers or not! Venus loves the sensuousness of relationships – body beautiful, exquisite art, intricate sequences and blends of symphony sounds, intricate cultural anthology, and right on down to the fine local handshake with someone you just meet! Venus connects us person to person. Mercury connects your minds, a thought to a thought. It’s not what you say but how you say it. Listening is just as important as speaking, hearing heart to heart. The Venus people connections, and connections with the greater world around us, will expand Mercury’s capacity, his scope of mindfulness, give him a more sophisticated outlook, a greater capacity of attention! Limitless, really.

This last Mercury Retrograde of 2018 retrogrades from 13 Sagittarius 29 back to 27 Scorpio 16 Nov 16 to Dec 6. The three part cycle starts Oct 28, finishes Dec 24, Christmas Eve! Mercury starts in Scorpio, attending to what ails us and the power within us! Secret alliances may be made, but eventually, Mercury will spill the beans. Be ready to make the most of that. Have your explanation script ready and use the revelation to our betterment. Keep your documents handy and facts at your fingertips. If you have been wanting to talk with someone for a long time, this may be your opening. Rxs are good for reviews, but not final resolutions. Share, but don’t sign. In Scorpio don’t be surprised if you are masterfully seduced, but it would truly be better to wait until you know this person well or until you see more of how the situation comes out after Dec 6. If you invest, make it so you can back out instantaneously, or wait. An old health matter may come up again and this a perfect time to take care of it, get to the root. Or, research it, then, with your astrologer, set a surgery date a week or so after Dec 6. Double check security systems before, during and after Mercury Rx in Scorpio.

In Sagittarius there are trip itinerary mix-ups, the plans change, the school, courses and instructors don’t pan out. There can be weight gain as we snack mindlessly while we nervously try to make a decision. Health matters involve something that is too much, too big, hips/thighs. We can pull a muscle just having a great time or racing. Not fair. Gambling can be a too much. Horses, big dogs, be careful. Photography blunders of panoramic vistas may appear to be a mistake, but later prove to be valuable for something you didn’t realize was in the image! Keep them all! Opportunities may come back in an unexpected way. Wait to see more, yes, until after Dec 6.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers, or do everything to make it possible for that to happen so it doesn’t fall though. Escrows can fall through. They don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Even then, have a backup plan.

Sagittarius has such optimism! It may be just too good to be true, or Sag may be just so lucky as to succeed against the odds! We may find that lost winning lotto ticket! That would be ok! You may feel to revive your blog. Things have changed and you’ve got great new stuff to say. People can use that info! Resubmit for publishing. Play with the idea of going somewhere you have always wanted to go. Bet there’s a way you can do it! Good luck!

Mercury, not Rx yet, is at 29 Scorpio when Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic Oct 30! But 9:39 PM Pacific that evening it goes into Sagittarius! Mercury’s main job this time, and during the following Rx, is much more important than the usual mixing up your travel plans! It follows not only Venus Rx, but the major Pluto/Ecliptic event TEN day sequence! Some of those whose charts are connected will be reeling! Mercury is ordained to be the Messenger of what that all means, from deep and dark to the brilliant light of the Sun! It’s a perfect job for Mercury in Sagittarius! Sag automatically sees the best of things, the perspective of past to future, collects the data, makes the plans, and with faith filling its heart, teaches the Way! That is especially important because the last event of the 10 day sequence is Jupiter going into its own sign, Sagittarius!

This Venus Retrograde is important not just for being retrograde, but for hosting the intense 10 day Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic sequence Oct 30 to Nov 8 (in RED below)! She makes double sure significant changes are made. Since their cycle aspects overlap, here is the entire timetable:

You may be a bit exhausted after this entire 4 months long sequence. Sometimes it takes even longer as what was brought up needs time to be integrated into your now different way of living! Will life ever be smooth again? Of course! Then you will wish for some changes and you know they will come!

Be sweet and keep telling our story! It’s in your hands.

Be wise. Check carefully with your astrologer about your personal timing!
