Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse, Summer Solstice/Father’s Day June 20/21!!

Saturday June 20 Summer Solstice Solar Eclipse New Moon at 11:41 PM Pacific, 0 Cancer 21! Heads up: The New Moon will be on Sunday the 21st in Mountain, Central and Eastern Zones, on Father’s Day!

Venus Gemini and Mercury Cancer, both in Station, are plowing through the piles of information for what it all means and what to keep!

Cancer 2020 New Moon Canyonlands Cave Milky Way

The cave where the tribe used to meet… The False Kiva archaeological site is located near the Upheaval Dome area of Canyonlands National Park in Utah. By Christopher E Herbert. Finished shooting the Milky Way at 2:00 am before hiking back out with my friend and two other photographers.

This is the second eclipse this season, not visible in the US. Viewing: Partial Eclipse: Africa, southeast Europe, Asia  Annular Eclipse: central Africa, south Asia, China, Pacific. 

We start with the first Cancer new Moon at ZERO degrees, totally fresh! It’s a time for new ways of caring. Cancer is our family at home, our home in the world today. New Moon is seriously engaged with Saturn, the planet of Cancer’s opposite sign Capricorn, also at ZERO degrees! Saturn is retrograde in Aquarius, about to return to his own sign. They are askew by angle and Saturn is in an unpredictable sign not always comfortable to Moon, the 27 day planet who tends the hearth fires. Yet she herself changes a lot every 27 days, keeps her fingers on the pulse of the people, so, in a way, there is always something new afoot, and both Cancer and Aquarius are community minded. In AQ Saturn is making required changes to things that were anchors to our ethics, laws, necessities. We have had two ‘pandemics’ to face recently, COVID-19 and the worldwide George Floyd protests.

Cancer is not just your Mom, but our community, our culture. Cancer is the number one sign of business and they are terrific stock traders, sensing the nuances of the mood of the people. They 100% understand commodities, the daily household supplies we all need. They know when we are troubled and bring that casserole over to help us get through it. They wait until we are ready to talk or give us a talking to! Femininity is key. Our matriarchal lineage affects us more than we realize. We are our mother’s children, yet they nurture us, their instinct hoping we will surpass them.

Jupiter’s June 29 retrograde conjunction with Pluto will bring more deaths from both COVID and residual protests. At the same time people are stepping up to heal each other. As with environmental disasters, the playing field is leveled. We come to stand up to a common threat, and when you are drowning, you are glad for help from anyone no matter their skin color. We make new unlikely friendships and allies. These matters open us to interact more widely, get to know each other in different ways. Our new goal is not to restore, but to excel to new levels long overdue. Saturn’s preview in Aquarius sees potential that will cost a lot less. When it retrogrades back into Capricorn July 1, serious work will be done to implement significant changes. 

Both of 2020 Cancer’s New Moons are in Bowl charts.

This Bowl chart is less than 180°, planets spread across 7 signs with grouping and pairings! The first group is Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn, the base planets of the Bowl, close with Saturn, Capricorn’s planet. Saturn is now in Aquarius, to retrograde back into Capricorn July 1! He is previewing Aquarius then will return to revamp and solidify Capricorn’s techniques before Saturn’s final entry into Aquarius and prepare for Pluto into Aquarius March 2023! The transition from traditional building to evolutionary humanitarian planetary work is so apparent with pandemic COVID-19 changes and worldwide protests for freedom.

Jupiter with Pluto was first exact April 4. It is now retrograding back to make its second/retrograde conjunction with Pluto June 29. They have been close since March 12, shifting perceptions back and forth, tweaking Capricorn structures, laws, responsibilities, extreme economic twists, environmental and human rights, COVID-19 concerns. There are secrets, revelations, lies and truths, bald faced power jockeying, greed, fear, deaths and saves. Many are seeing the potentials of incredible new options.

Jupiter makes things best, bigger or exaggerated, the worst – like C-19. Pluto is at his microscope looking for that vaccine. Pluto can resurrect or save your life, make money or take your life and all your money, bankruptcy. It can bond your relationship for a lifetime, or there you are filing divorce papers against that cheater! Jupiter can be schooling, trips, publishing, truth and the consequences if you have been a liar no longer getting away with it. Jupiter is so much the traveler, but with the Virus, and Jupiter in Capricorn, the sign of limitations, necessities only, no such luck for now. Pluto can be the scandal, fighting over inheritances, funding, or fund the most amazing healing research and a center with exceptional care for victims. We have been seeing amazing caring and people stepping up to the plate. You see this aspect has a great range, extremes. And both can happen at once. Keep your life clean or Jupiter in Capricorn the law, Pluto the Police, will be knocking on your door. If you have the means, do what you can to help survivors, heal the environment long term, provide significant education. Apply for help if you need it. Sometimes we just can’t do it all alone. One day you will be the one that’s doing the giving. Bless you and keep you. When you can, pay it forward.

Jupiter Conjunct Pluto will continue in their close conjunction through July 30! The third and final aspect is Nov 12, THE aspect of the Nov 3 Presidential Election. You can see how crucial this aspect is. In Capricorn there is much long term work of necessity. Set your goals and stick with them, revising and updating as you go. DO what makes a difference.

With Mercury’s retrograde that started June 17, we are in a week of the double retrograde with Venus until Venus turns forward June 24! Both are in Station! Station is when a planet appears to be standing still in the sky. A Station offers a pause, a focus, deepened perception, emphasis. Venus is in one of Mercury’s signs Gemini. Together they are whirling with thoughts, ideas. The word is getting spread by social media at the speed of light!

Mercury Retrograde is going back to sextile Uranus again. As some say, Friends (Uranus) are the family we choose! Uranus in Taurus is Earth herself, organic. Our Networks are vital to the new works we need to do among our people and for peaceful sustainability. 

Though retrograde, ‘going backward,’ Mercury in Cancer is leading the Bowl chart! This form of leadership gives you pause to consider just how that is done! Sometimes a leader has to take a few steps back, wisely retreat from a position that instinctively doesn’t feel right or the advance has not quite hit the time to move forward. Go back, strengthen your position, double check your information. If things need changing, update your approach tactics. Use that retrograde well. 

Moon is in her own sign! She feels the feelings, her patterns and passages. She is in Sun’s Heart Light, feeling stronger with his support. He in her sign understands her better, sees how important her nurturing is, not just to children and family, but to all of us. She is a model of that unconditional givingness. It’s like a Mother’s caress wherever she goes. Moon will quickly bring her feelings, insights, awareness of cycles to Mercury for his consideration. Sun will meet up with Mercury on the 30th, illuminating Mercury’s thinking processes. Mercury will see what can stand the scrutiny and pass muster. He will be charged with getting the information to all the right places as soon as possible. 

Mercury is conjunct the amazing fixed Star Sirius! This is important because the July 4/5 Full Buck Moon Lunar Eclipse SUN is conjunct Sirius too! What Mercury gleans from Sirius now will be spread widely by the Full Moon, springing from their positive relationship with Uranus, the evolutionary Networker, who unites Humanity for the greatest well being possible! The Sun in Cancer is all for it! Robson say of Mercury conjunct Sirius: ‘Great business success, help through influential people, worries unnecessarily, associated with the Church, physical defect through accident.’ Please see more about Sirius in the Full Moon section.

Venus squares Neptune three times during her retrograde cycle. It is a significant aspect because Neptune is activated NINE times during the Venus retrograde cycle! One of the cycle’s most important aspects is the Jupiter conjunct Pluto’s companion aspect Jupiter’s RX sextile Neptune! It is July 27, the day of Venus’ last square to Neptune, the day before Venus’ RX cycle ends! It is the goal of the entire cycle! Being an outer planet sextile, it is likely to prevail beyond passing doubts with great promise. But happening three times, those small niggly doubts will be remembered for a while and double checks will be made to be sure progress is better than it was feared it wouldn’t be.

Neptune, in his own sign Pisces, represents a psychic/spiritual dimension beyond average, is the Great Guardian of Spirituality. He is of a very different element, water with no definite form. Gemini, Venus, nor Mercury in Gemini, one of his own signs, are immersed the same way as water, but they are heady in air, logical. Water and air have currents and winds, flow that carries you along their streams, but the view sure is different! At worst Neptune in Pisces is the suffering out of control addict. At best Neptune has empathy, extraordinary visions, does magic and Soul Saving miracles!

Venus is adding her Grace. Neptune hardly notices because he is focused on the intensity of his work. Jupiter in Capricorn sees the special value Neptune offers and give Neptune as much support as possible. Jupiter may publish essential historical documents to record changes and how various decisions were made at any given time. Some of it will be hard despairing news to look at. Some will be hopeful and inspiring as long term changes are finally possible and come true. There will be fumbles and fuming, but Jupiter what is good and best for all. Education will figure in prominently to open people to what could be better ways and show them the benefits. Trust may come quickly or need to be babied along. Do what you can. Keep an open heart; keep empathy handy.

Mars in Pisces recently swam with Neptune, Pisces’ planet, senses the currents, the easiest ways to get where he is going. He is immersing every molecule in the Dream that he may function wholly in its initiation when he gets into Aries, his own sign. In Aries he is the leader, the first responder, consultant, inspires others to take action. If he can do it, they can do it! He will start in Aries June 27 and step up the pace! Mars in Pisces is now leading from behind and within in behalf of the underdog, to help their suffering. He wants us to remember we were once there too. He’s encouraging them to call their formidable talents together to help themselves significantly change this planet.

Mars in Pisces is super sensitive to pivot points that can be used as springboards to areas that need attention to speed progress in a good way. Neptune in his own sign Pisces is a powerful visionary! Music, art, dreams, movies, seeing each other on our cell phones, are all potent ways of seeing, inspiration! Just seeing the sea, ocean sports, ships, seeing the magic of oceanic weather and creatures of the reefs, the depth, not seeing land, gives a broadening perspective that requires a certain faith in the unknowable, unconquerable. We can see further, forever, not know and still continue. Mars can be a silent partner in Pisces, but make no mistake, he is always a leader, even if from behind, no name given. The vision is bigger than any one of us and it will carry itself by its own Spirit!

Chiron in Aries and Uranus in Taurus are neighboring, only 15 mins apart! June 10 as they made their third from the last semisextile of their 13 yearlong sets of aspects that completes in 2021! Chiron is sizzling in fiery Aries, a good business person as well as a healer/teacher, terrific consultant! In this combination a promotional organization would suit his Spirit! Supporting new students, think tanks, getting groups started! Avant-garde ideas, exotic explorations on land or in the lab, unique sports, research for new cures, looking for leaders! All would be exciting ventures! They have been closely together in the background…a small but potent aspect.

Sweeping change is often started with chaos and discomfort. This is our chance to step up for things that will introduce new possibilities. Uranus in Taurus is working for stable global union. Taurus is Earth herself, her lands, indigenous peoples that inhabit them, the Standing Tree People, Stone People, the Four Leggeds, all. Uranus is working for planetary freedom for all beings. Networking is key and Uranus rules electronics, computers, cells, social media as well as planes. All are important means to connect valuably with each other. Friendships open gateways. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus 

If you use Chiron and Lilith in your interpretations, they make a wild pair. In Aries, Mars’ sign, they have their own power of Leadership. Chiron as healer never promised healing would be easy. In fact, you really have to want to live, to heal and have to step up to the plate. You are not the only person on the planet and at the same time we need you to do your special part. People you don’t even know are counting on you! Lilith says Amen! She can be a tough old bird or a formidable innocent, strong at minimum. She brings women to power that never expected to be there! Some have been so trained to think they aren’t strong it is a shock for them to find out what they can do. What’s even crazier is when they realize they always could have done it!

Cancer is such a deliciously personal sign as well as the sweet neighborhood busybody who looks after everyone.
 
Thank you, Dear Cancers! We are so blessed by you.

Capricorn – Cancer Full Buck Moon Lunar Eclipse!

Saturday/Sunday July 4 at 9:44 PM Pacific, July 5 Eastern 13 Capricorn/Cancer 38

This is a working Moon activated by the brightest star in the Heavens!

2020 Cancer Mother Moon Woman laying on ground before her

Feeling the July hot Summertime Eclipse, own the night……!

4th of July in Pacific, Mountain and Central, on the 5th in Eastern, but all on the same night! This is the third eclipse this season: Penumbral Lunar Eclipse  Barely perceptible…

Our July Full Moon axis defines a perfect 180° Bowl Chart, Cancer the sign of Bowls! The Full Moon axis is past the Chiron midpoint at 9 Aries. Nevertheless, with Mars now in his own sign activating Chiron, Chiron is still a potent factor in the time frame! Chiron is considered to be the wounded healer/teacher. We learn from our troubles, take a look at our mortality, vow to be a better person and help others, especially children, when we can. Chiron can be great in business, in Aries a leader to new goals and new ways of getting there. Some think Chiron is the number one marriage factor in our charts. Cancer and Capricorn want security, trust and support. Aries is holding the position that your backup Ace is always to be able to support yourself by yourself. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

The base of the Bowl is Mother Moon in a potent four planet Capricorn Stellium including Jupiter at the same degree as Pluto – just past their June 29 conjunction, and last, Saturn newly returned into his own sign Capricorn July 1! This puts us back into a three outer planet Capricorn stellium until Saturn makes his final entry into Aquarius Dec 16! We are standing in Jupiter/Pluto’s companion aspect Jupiter retrograde sextile Neptune July 27 through the third one, October 12, before the Presidential Election. This grouping carries awareness of great responsibilities, takes a hard look at the past, wants a realistic working system. We can learn wisely from the past. Sadly, some we are sorry for. Other we have outgrown, are done with it! Gladly we have hope for building changes together, collaboratively to make important and timely upgrades. Remodeling and sustainability factor strongly. Capricorn is ace at rebuilding better! Some we keep, some we let go and joyfully replace! 
       
Sun in Cancer in its annual conjunction with powerful fixed Star Sirius leads the Bowl, lighting the way. Father Sun in Mother Moon’s Sign is a blend of their energies. Cancer is strengthened, noting where to clear the cobwebs, proud of her successes. She shares her blessings with Sun and his heart expands! Mercury in Cancer is assisting, going back over the ideas that have been deep within, helping to bring them to the surface for updating. Things and people need extra care these days. Sun is generous and Mercury tells the stories that connect us. 

SIRIUS, the Dog Star in the constellation Canis Major is the brightest star in Earth’s Night Sky. The name means “glowing” in Greek. For the Egyptians, Sirius was revered as the Nile Star, or Star of Isis. In mythology the dog Sirius is one of the watchmen, celestial guardians of the Heavens. It is fixed in one place at the bridge of the Milky Way, keeping guard over the abyss into incarnation or in other beliefs, it guarded the dead and guided them to the afterlife. 

  • Space.com:  …the actual Dog Days, or “Canicular” days as they’re known, are defined as the period from July 3 through Aug. 11 when the Dog Star, Sirius, rises in conjunction (or nearly so) with the sun. As a result, the classical Greek and Roman belief was that the combination of the brightest luminary of the day (the sun) and the brightest star of night (Sirius) were responsible for the extreme heat that is experienced during the middle of the northern summer. Other effects, according to the ancients, were droughts, plagues and madness.
     
  • Researcher Elsbeth Ebertin says: ‘Sirius in conjunction with the Sun and well placed in the chart will be found to be the case with numerous important and famous personalities. Possibly, the rise in station is made possible by protection from people of influence.’ If you have this Eclipse’s conjunction in good relationship with your chart factors, or have it so in your birth chart, wonderful! See more about it with other factors.

Sun is in Moon’s sign Cancer, warming Cancer’s heart, giving her strength to do all the caring she is want to do, forever and ever. She makes us the best shelter within her means, raises/teaches children – makes sure we get the best education, homeschooling to college, feeds us from body to Spirit, loves us no matter what from sorrows to success! She may be an artist, a skill sharing business person, a community and cultural leader, an advocate for women and children’s rights, volunteering at the local safe house. She makes sure we have good water.

Moon herself is in her opposite sign, Capricorn. She is an excellent community organizer, has an exceptional instinct for business. Capricorn works hard to build what our families and community needs, to gain respect by professional excellence, often has an outstanding reputation. He excels in law and order, dependability. Cancer brings feelings to him, that law is law, humans are human. She shows him how important background is, how to help rather than only categorize and dispense with. Humans need time to learn and time to grow, often to overcome their past. They need to be shown what can be done and how to do it. One who can be costly to us in our communities can become one of our greatest contributors given a chance. Yes, it usually takes time. They are an investment and it is our part to learn how to be an effective teacher, guide.

Venus now direct is semisextile Mercury in Cancer still Retrograde. Mercury is still perusing and turning mental soil about how we feel about the world today and what to do. We have the Virus, civil unrest, environmental discord. Cancer is all about security, nurturing those who suffer for any reason. Our environment is our ultimate home. Taking care of it is a big job. Mercury was sextile Uranus June 5 and 30, will again July 22. Sun also sextiled Uranus the 30th and Moon trined earlier today at 3:19 PM Pacific. Though past, they are all still close, carrying the messages of innovation, humanitarian efforts, the value of networking and philanthropy. Many have new friends, are looking to places in the world family where proven and productive changes have been made.       

Venus never made that sextile with Mars! She turned forward at five Gemini while Mars was still in Pisces and left Mars behind. They have been traveling closely however… They were within 5 degrees of each other when Mars shifted into Aries. July 4 they become 3°, and stay 3° or less through July 21! There is a side by side effect, sharing ideas. Venus gives grace and longing that spurs Mars to action! Venus tells of how heroic Mars is, inspiring people to take his lead!

Venus does sextile Chiron July 10, Mars makes the conjunction to Chiron July 14! In horary astrology this constitutes a connection of all three, Chiron ‘collects’ the light of Venus and Mars. Venus sweetens Chiron’s leadership, enhances his healing and teaching skills with her gracious ways of saying things and brings valued information. She praises him and he takes a greater stride forward! Mars energizes Chiron to stay true to his cause, not be influenced by distractions or payoffs. Mars is a pro at new beginnings and Chiron has to be medically careful with the healing aspect of his work, but new ways are being called for with the Virus, and even with political and police matters. It is important not to be stopped at important junctures of your work or to be ill, injured or disabled yourself. Stay safe and be well. Take care of yourself first that you may serve.

Mercury Rx in Cancer is leaving his July 1 square to Chiron in Aries, retrograding back to square Mars July 8. Mercury shared updated information with Chiron alerting him to current changes in needs and setting new priorities. Cancer is traditional, but a sign quick to make sensible adjustments. Aries can be so full of straight ahead fire that you have to get his attention first, quickly impart your three liner to-the-point info then see how that goes. If needed, check in again to be sure the whole thing got taken in. If it is an emergency, do your best, but be big about it! Mercury will make the third square to Chiron July 21 the day after the second New Moon in Cancer! By then there will be more news to share. Stay progressive.

Mercury in Cancer can seem like drip to Aries who can quickly dodge raindrops, and there could be some heated words. Ask if there is a better time to talk. Even if there is disagreement and a seeming blow off, know that Mars in Aries is hella fast at taking things in, possibly especially if they make him feel to fight, LOL! He loves challenges! So don’t be surprised if you find him doing what you asked when you thought he didn’t hear! Give it a little time… Caring communications, checking in are essential.

Chiron in Aries semisextile Uranus in Taurus are in neighboring signs less than a degree apart! Those of you with chart factors at 8, 9, 10 & 11, especially in Aries or Taurus, will feel the touch. Chiron is sizzling in fiery Aries, a good business person as well as a healer/teacher, terrific consultant! In this combination a promotional organization would suit his Spirit! Supporting new students, think tanks, phenomenal networking, getting groups started! Avant-garde ideas, exotic explorations on land or in the lab, unique sports, research for new cures, looking for leaders! All would be exciting ventures! They have been closely together in the background…a small but potent 13 year aspect. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus 

Jupiter Conjunct Pluto are still in close connection since their second conjunction June 29 and will be on through July 30! The third and final aspect is Nov 12, THE aspect leading up to the Nov 3 Presidential Election. You can see how crucial this aspect is. In Capricorn there is much long term work of necessity. Set your goals and stick with them, revising and updating as you go. DO what makes a difference. Team up with people who are making a difference. Learn from them.

Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn is the most powerful aspect of 2020 after the Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto. Saturn and Capricorn have brought the wrecking ball. Pluto brought the Virus and Jupiter is prejudice, but also outing the truth of the violence of racial injustice. Pluto in Capricorn is the Police, both good and bad, and hired killers. Jupiter often exaggerates conditions in initial situations not much is known about. We keep learning as different perspectives are considered. In Capricorn historical situations and what other governments have done can be profitably compared. Tradition is being reassessed. Old icons are tumbled. Jupiter looks for what works better at less cost. Sustainability is a strong factor now due to environmental concerns. Time to make a clean sweep and build much, much better.

Jupiter makes things best, bigger or exaggerated, the worst – like C-19. Pluto is at his microscope looking for that vaccine. Pluto can resurrect or save your life, make money or take your life and all your money, bankruptcy. It can bond your relationship for a lifetime, or there you are filing divorce papers against that cheater! Jupiter can be schooling, trips, publishing, truth and the consequences if you have been a liar no longer getting away with it. Jupiter is so much the traveler, but with the Virus, and Jupiter in Capricorn, the sign of limitations, necessities only, no such luck for now. Pluto can be the scandal, fighting over inheritances, funding, or fund the most amazing healing research and a center with exceptional care for victims. We have been seeing amazing caring and people stepping up to the plate. You see this aspect has a great range, extremes. And both can happen at once. Keep your life clean or Jupiter in Capricorn the law, Pluto the Police, will be knocking on your door. If you have the means, do what you can to help survivors, heal the environment long term, provide significant education. Apply for help if you need it. Sometimes we just can’t do it all alone. One day you will be the one that’s doing the giving. Bless you and keep you. When you can, pay it forward.

Jupiter RX sextile Neptune Jupiter’s companion aspect to its conjunction with Pluto soothes the waters, yet keeps the dream alive! Jupiter is publishing and that’s the video, Neptune, of George Floyd, a clearly suffering (Neptune) human at the unkindness of bullies. Jupiter can be bullies – opinionated, condescending and prejudiced. A sextile represents an opportunity. Jupiter also wants the truth and Neptune is what’s hidden. Though a very sad circumstance, Mr Floyd becoming a martyr at the cost of his life, good will come from this man giving his life. Neptune is Spirit. Jupiter is Justice. It’s about time for some Spiritual Justice. Worldwide people are rising. Jupiter is retrograding back to meet Neptune again July 27 and will be in close continuous connection through the third aspect Oct 12. This isn’t over yet. And it all will affect the elections. Do your part. Be kind. Above all, help your mates to register and VOTE.

Seek visionary thinkers with sensible long term plans! We can do this!

Capricorn – Cancer Full Buck Moon Lunar Eclipse Astrology Chart!

Cancer 2020 Full Buck Moon Lunar Eclipse 4th of July

SECOND Cancer New Moon! 

Monday July 20 at 10:33 AM Pacific 28 Cancer 27

Hard work is showing rewards, Venus/Mercury are moving forward, time to move on!

Cancer 2020 Second New Moon Double Moons, Majestic Mountains Clouds!

Some call it a Double New Moon. If there are two New Moons in a month the second is called a Black Moon. Maybe this too, in the same sign, could be called a Black Moon?

We started with the first new Moon at ZERO degrees, totally fresh! It was seriously engaged with Saturn, the planet of Cancer’s opposite sign Capricorn. Saturn was retrograde at ZERO degrees Aquarius, about to return to Capricorn, his own sign. They were askew by angle and Saturn was in an unpredictable sign not always comfortable to Moon, the 27 day planet who tends the hearth fires. Yet she herself changes a lot every 27 days, so, in a way, always something new afoot, and both Cancer and Aquarius are community minded.

This second Cancer New Moon is at 28°, very close to the end of Cancer, experienced. Moon and Sun are imminently exactly opposite Saturn now IN his own sign at 28° Capricorn! Moon is in her own sign, so both are potently in their places of power. Cancer is not always considered a ‘powerful’ sign, but personally I wouldn’t mess with her. She can call the tribe and all her ancestors! Sun is right there with her, and he is the Man! Cancer is food, home and family while Capricorn works in the world, provides protection and shelter. He carries the law while Cancer nurtures with feelings. He makes her aware of their responsibilities, the need for children to grow up successfully. Cancer makes him know how people/children are different, have different timing than his. Both are excellent at business. Cap is a hard worker, takes care of necessities. Cancer broods, at times like a broody hen maybe, but has her finger on the pulse of the people! She knows what people need, and when they will want it, the best emphasis for business.  

With Saturn back in his sign Capricorn we again have a 3 Outer Planet Stellium! Jupiter/Pluto are still at the Bowl chart base, still close after their June 29 retrograde conjunction. Saturn will remain in Capricorn until his final change into Aquarius Dec 16. For the moment, all three are retrograde, but Saturn is now within 5° of Pluto putting all three in working distance of each other. Saturn goes back to 25°, traveling closely within 3° of Pluto until they turn forward. Saturn turns Sep 28/29; Pluto turns Oct 4. Saturn travels more quickly and soon leaves Pluto behind. Jupiter, however, has already turned Sep 12 at 17° and quickly catches up with Pluto for their final Nov 12 conjunction! While together the threesome have many similar ideas but tend to work toward them separately until Pluto and Jupiter get close. Then there is a perhaps a surprising merger, unexpected funding tips the scales. Whatever it is, Jupiter will make it famous. It can be very bad or very good, likely both. 

Important matters will continue to include what’s already on the table: learning, careers, healing/vaccine, free speech, laws and enforcement, justice, human rights, sexuality and gender, money and defunding or funding, boycotting harmful people or businesses, finding new ways to long held matters that have needed changing. Please be kind to each other and do what you can in a good way. Step up to the plate. Sometimes we marvel that such a simple solution wasn’t seen before. Just takes one person to say it, but it might have taken a lot of ideas to make that one finally pop up! 

Another Bowl chart!

New Moon, Moon in her own sign Cancer are leading! Mercury is with them in Cancer following along behind, acting as the sweep. His duty is to help other followers, keep the trail clean behind them. There may be joiners that want to know what’s happening and what they can do. Mercury is logical and credible, while in Cancer more personally concerned, combines thoughts and feelings making nurturing connections. The newcomers join in. They become a family of a kind. 

Mercury and Venus are both now moving forward after their double retrograde June 17 to 24. They complete their entire retrograde cycles July 25 and 28 with the Jupiter RX Sextile Neptune, Venus square Neptune right between them on the 27th! Mercury and Venus retrograde sorted and sifted, thought and talked, smelled the roses and baked bread. So much has changed we are all adjusting and it isn’t done. But they moving forward are putting their ideas into action, exploring new ground in today’s world. Working together is comforting and we can all contribute in our own special way. New alliances are being made as we find certain people want more of the same things we want than what we knew about them before. Circumstances have leveled the playing field and we have the blessing of more mutual goals.  

Jupiter RX Sextile Neptune and Venus square Neptune are making the vision of major planetary changes apparent to many. It will be how we treat our Earth and her beings, including each other. Jupiter wants the whole TRUTH, draws deep from Neptune’s dreams, the fathomless well of Spirit. There are lies, scams, prejudice, judgments, but many will be revealed. Jupiter ultimately wants the long term best for all. This is a time to teach through parables. We can’t all be there, but a well told story makes us feel like we are. Venus is questioning the dream, picks out what she deems worthy. She knows how to ‘dress up’ ideas that at first may appear unpalatable or impossible. She gleans important points that many overlook. That’s one of her special graces. She gets to know people through her appreciation of them and so much more is revealed. Even if you don’t understand, you can appreciate someone’s effort. See also the Full Moon’s last paragraph above.

As with the Full Moon, though still close, Venus never made that sextile with Mars! She turned forward at five Gemini while Mars was still in Pisces and left Mars behind. They have been traveling closely however… They were within 5 degrees of each other when Mars shifted into Aries. July 4th they became within 3°, and stay 3° or less through July 21! They exchanged glances, there was a side by side effect, sharing ideas, but they didn’t collaborate. Venus gives grace and spurs Mars to action! Venus tells of how heroic Mars is, inspiring people to take his lead! Mars liked her, so he is sad to see her go even though he’s very independent.

Mercury does square Mars now and exactly on the Jupiter sextile Neptune the 27th. Mars is now in his own sign Aries! Impatience is likely. Mercury may be going about grumbling under his breath. He tries to be nurturing in Cancer, but Mars may be too pushy or too personal too quick. Mars may prod relentlessly, noisily. He wants new now, but Cancer is traditional. My Mother always did it that way. He likely means well, but Cancer is a more tender sort. She may be looking for security and she intuitively knows he can be gone in a minute to an enticing new opportunity. Mercury may be a little confused at some news and not in the mood, tired and worried, yet has to deal with events as they come. There could be an accident, an upset tummy. Mars just wants to get going! He thinks Cancers just need to make up their mind and get over it! Well, that could be true, but there is a human in there doing the best they can. Take it easy – you don’t want to have words. If you push too hard you may lose their friendship forever.

So Mercury, get your rest, talk when you feel up to par. Mars, just know everyone isn’t like you. You are terrific, but we are all here together. If you are saving a life, then do what you do. Mercury, appreciate what a leader this person is. Hear them out, then per the time frame available, let them know where you stand. Your intuition will serve you precisely for the circumstances at that time. Things can change later. You can too if that’s your choice. Mars, keep standing tall and proud! We couldn’t do it without you!

Mercury is about to sextile Uranus and square Chiron for the third of three times! Sextile Uranus is good connections with friends, such great strange but genius ideas! Good Sci Fi! Square Chiron, it may not sell right away, if ever. Oh well, it was fun. Or, unapologetically write it and keep writing. Get past the business hurdles. Save and keep each version as you go. What doesn’t fit here may be the lead for a second episode, be part of a series, or stand well alone on its own! Give it some time. Work out any publishing problems. The retrogrades undoubtedly brought some new options! Check in with friends, face your business/employment/financial security matters. Check in with proven advisors. Develop a more sustainable outlook about your future. The world is changing as we speak. Some old ways are being rooted out, some new ones are having growing pains. Goes with the territory. Smart networking makes a huge difference. We can put our heads together ~ as they say, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts!

The continuing Chiron in Aries semisextile Uranus in Taurus are in neighboring signs less than a degree apart! Those of you with chart factors at 8, 9, 10 & 11, especially in Aries or Taurus, will feel the touch. Chiron is sizzling in fiery Aries, a good business person as well as a healer/teacher, terrific consultant! In this combination a promotional organization would suit his Spirit! Supporting new students, think tanks, phenomenal networking, getting groups started! Avant-garde ideas, exotic explorations on land or in the lab, unique sports, research for new cures, looking for leaders! All would be exciting ventures! They have been closely together in the background…a small but potent 13 year aspect. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus 

This concludes the Saga of the Three Cancer 2020 Lunar Events! Read them carefully, note their differences and the underlying ongoing aspects they ride on. Set your long term goals, then fill in with the steps you will be taking to complete or sustain your Mission.  

Good luck, be safe and be well. Thank you for your good work.

Taurus 2020 Balcony Italian Woman Accordion Singing C-19

Venus is love and affection; Gemini is Communications. Italians have made world news during Covid-19 singing and making music from their balconies. Some are known performers, making beauty for all! Bless them, how prezioso. Grazie from all of us in the world! We send our love to you. Volare from the balconies! 

► During Cancer: June 24 the Double Rx ends with Venus turning forward! 6.29 Jupiter Rx conjuncts Pluto. 7.1 Saturn back into his sign Capricorn during Mercury Rx.

► 5.20.20 Update: May is the 2nd month of the Double Retrograde process, June coming right along. Stay tuned in and use it deliberately. Stay on your long term purpose.

At this time, our communications mean so much. We wish it could be in person hugs, but we wait and find other ways to make our feelings clear by respecting distance – now another form of communication.

Venus, besides being in Gemini, is the planet of two signs, Taurus and Libra. Taurus says these are inalienable organic rights. Venus is blessed with clever in Libra and may be the attorney who stands up for those rights. Venus presents with beauty and dignity, shows the attractiveness and value, the wealth, common respect for all.

Venus in Gemini started her Retrograde CYCLE April 9 and doesn’t complete the entire cycle until July 28, so most of her process will be during the Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. She will be finding grace in communications. Jupiter wants Truth while Pluto opts for privacy. There will be some challenging delicate moments. Venus loving kindness will make all the difference.

Mother’s Day experiences happen during the Venus Rx Station – the time Venus appears to be standing still in the sky. Our Mother Love will be reassessed in view of C-19 experiences. How have we done as Mothers, children? Will we connect in a more meaningful way? What will make us all, men and women, be better spiritual Mother’s to our planet?

Stations bring special emphasis! A Station is when a planet literally appears to stand still in the sky at the retrograde and direct turning points. Mercury has four days before and four days after the turns. Venus takes a bit longer and the number of days varies. Stations help us slow down. They are a pause when we are able to be still to receive, focus, take time to think, anchor important ideas we want to keep. The longer the station the more its strength.

Venus covers 5 to 21 Gemini 50 retrograde May 12 to June 24. Her 12 day 1° Rx station at 20/21 Gemini is from May 5 to 19. Her 16 day 1° Direct station at 5/6 Gemini is from June 16 to July 1.

Mercury covers 5 to 14 Cancer retrograde June 17 to July 12. His 8 day Rx station at 14 Cancer is June 14 to 21. His 8 day Direct station is at 5 Cancer from July 8 to 15.

If you have factors in your chart at or very close to those degrees, you will be activated, especially at the station degrees. Check in with your astrologer if you have significant plans at those times.

Plan ahead for what you want to be done, as much as possible, well before those times. Gemini is communications, speaking venues, scheduling, gear needed for that, phones, computers. Take care of your hands, lungs and breath. Cancer is business matters, your community, things at home especially in the kitchen and sleeping quarters, relationships with women and children, take care of your cat and your breasts/stomach. Get images you need, take care of your photography/albums.

Double Retrograde! This Venus Rx is especially important and complex for two reasons! 1) Because Mercury has an entire Retrograde cycle concurrently WITHIN the Venus Rx cycle! They will both be Rx together from June 17 to 24! Mercury Mind and Venus Matter will be atwiggle! 2) The brew will be especially stirred because Venus is in Gemini, one of Mercury’s signs! Mercury has ideas by the zillions on any normal day. But Venus wants to know what they are worth and who said so!

Plus, there are THREE important planetary events during and following the Venus/Mercury retrograde! 

Most important are any major outer planet combinations that happen just before, during or immediately after a retrograde cycle. The planetary connections Venus or Mercury make during the retrograde cycle, especially the ones that repeat, indicate part of its purpose. Venus and Mercury help prepare us for planetary aspects that follow, whether the aspects are in the sky or in your personal chart. And, of course, the connections Venus and Mercury make, or don’t, with your chart factor in personally! See your astrologer if you need help with this!

1. The first is the ongoing Jupiter conjunct Pluto. This Venus Retrograde cycle is wholly concurrent with that period! The second exact Jupiter conjunct Pluto is June 29 just after Venus turns Direct June 24. As we have already seen, the conjunction can make you millions or make a huge mistake and lose a few. It can exaggerate your difficult condition or expand a good thing beyond your wildest dreams! It can be sadly obsessive, exceptionally cruel, or a healer with the most extraordinary abilities comes your way. In the US the particular importance of this aspect will be at the US Presidential Elections November 3. Its third aspect, the mature aspect, will be Nov 12 just after the election, in other words, THE aspect of the Elections, exactly at the same degree and sign as the recent Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto!

The April 4 Jupiter conjunct Pluto was the aspect being felt at the end of the Feb/March Mercury Rx cycle. Now it is the trigger aspect starting at the beginning of the Venus Retrograde Cycle! It will be what we are thinking about throughout the Venus/Mercury retrogrades!

Venus in Gemini is blessed and skilled at communication. Leaving no stone unturned, she will access diverse sources, gather information, reassess the value of what she learns as an entirety. Like with Mercury, Gemini’s planet, we have a good chance of learning a lot. Mercury in Cancer literally looks at the underbelly, what people -especially women – feel, what they need, how they sit in our community, how our culture is doing. What kind of history are we making? Recovery is not enough. They want more and what is best for our and our children’s future.

2. Jupiter Sextile Neptune  June 13 Jupiter Rx in Capricorn is back to 5° sextile Neptune in Pisces. July 1 it is back to 3°, getting closer and closer until the conjunction July 27. This is a super magical aspect riding in the background. Jupiter is judge; Capricorn is spiritual law. Neptune in Pisces is the visionary business of all. Many of us are rethinking what is really important, what we would like to renovate, what to build for a more sustainable future. We are more aware of Planetary kinship, a spiritual consensus more important than government, power and profits alone. Jupiter sees the extraordinary potential, can map it out in realistic terms and Capricorn has the expertise to make it so! True Believers unite!

Jupiter makes its 2nd and 3rd aspects July 27 and Oct 12. The day Jupiter makes that second July 27 aspect is right between the very last days of the Mercury and Venus Rx cycles July 25 and 28. Mercury in Cancer, Capricorn’s opposite, has been watching keenly, feeling the progress – lacks and successes. Mercury, so aware of the importance of Neptune’s insights and visions, spreads the word of the upcoming possibilities. The information and insights Mercury and Venus glean will be passed on to the Jupiter/Neptune archives for up leveling. From then on, Jupiter and Neptune stay close to 2 degrees or less until the third and last aspect Oct 12, so the aspect is virtually continuous for that period and a little before and after. The third Jupiter/Neptune aspect is at 18 Capricorn 45, conjunct the important Oct 30 2018 Pluto/Ecliptic degree! In turn, the Oct 12 2020 aspect is the closest preceding aspect to the Nov 3 Presidential Election. What Mercury and Venus learn now is significant because it will be telegraphed right down the line. Pay attention and don’t forget. Make notes, document, review at future times.

3. While Saturn is in Aquarius it squares Uranus in Taurus from 5° or less starting from the March 21 entry time until May 1. At that point Saturn slows to retrograde while Uranus continues forward. It doesn’t make the three actual squares until 2021! Saturn puts the brakes on change that is too rapid or not natural. He stopped the airlines due to the pandemic, is limiting friendships and networks, looking for better long term ways to build our new future!  

July 1 Saturn Rx leaves Aquarius, goes back into his own sign Capricorn! The entire first part and the retrograde part of the Venus Rx cycle are entirely during Saturn in Aquarius. Just six days after Venus turns direct, Saturn goes back into Capricorn to rebuild now that there are new specs. Mercury is still Rx at that time, so still has questions, like ‘How is this shift going to work out?’ Mercury in Cancer has practically photographic memory, so easily digs back to see what differences occur. It can see what failed and how it failed and guide us to help prevent that happening again.  Saturn in Aquarius   Saturn in Capricorn

Saturn’s sign change has more significance than at first glance. In Aquarius it starts a long chain of Aquarian/Uranian aspects through Feb 2022. Saturn remains in Aquarius until March 7 2023, just days before Pluto’s sign change into Aquarius March 23, 2023! In AQ it prepares us for Pluto’s sign change!

Venus retrograde cycles are longer than Mercury’s, so we are traversing a 4 months period. 

Venus makes two repeated planetary aspects during its retrograde cycle, April 9 to July 28. Three times each it sextiles Chiron and squares Neptune. With Chiron favorably, communications are good for healing, business and marriage depending on how it fits with your personal chart. The squares with Neptune aren’t sure. There could be mix ups, lost papers or people. It could bring broken dreams, encounters with addiction, or more kindness than you have ever seen or known. Venus in Gemini can have so much data that it doesn’t settle well at first, is overwhelming, or Venus seems selfish or glib. Relationships are reevaluated. Sources of income will change.

Everyone calm down, talk about it, go away and think about it, come back to it. Probably good to wait until both retrogrades are well over. See how things are after the dust settles. Most astrologers wouldn’t suggest marrying with both of these particular planets retrograde. Mercury is contracts; Venus is love and regard. Not good to be changing your mind on that one after the contract is made. It’s good if you have a revelation and save yourself from yourself before the contract is made! Business can be tweaked or just let go. Healing can bring reform and change that keeps changing, hopefully for the better. It is not a spiritual problem if you disengage from that particular healer or healing modality, teacher. Learning never stops.

Eight aspects are made to Chiron in Aries, good with Venus, some challenging, some inspiring and empowering! Look into new ways of teaching and healing, doing business that has never been done before. Scout things during the retrogrades. If you still feel the same way after the retrogrades, see if anyone would like to partner up and give it a go! There will be many opportunities!

Nine aspects are being made to Neptune in its own sign Pisces! Some will be challenges, others will get Neptune up and going walkabout, but the big one is the July 27 Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn, powerful good fortune and focus, sextile Neptune of dreams and visions to come true! Jupiter retrograde has come back to see how things are doing, what has changed, what can make it better than was thought before. Jupiter will tweak a few things. It won’t be entirely finished, but will be put back on track, centered for the future on or about Oct 12. Get on it! Believe!

Between Mercury, Venus, Sun and Mars, half the signs will be being covered, from Aquarius to Leo! You can follow them per planet along the Timeline. 

In the Feb/March Mercury Rx it sextiled Uranus from Pisces to Taurus expressing its dreams that Taurus could be alert to secure them. This time Mercury sextiles from Cancer back to Taurus. Uranus in Taurus likes to take sensible chances and often surprises us with how well it works though we thought it was a long shot. Cancer is a good trader, senses the mood of the people, knows when things are hot and cold, whether they feel safe or not. It instinctively assesses a person’s capability. Cancer is a great business sign, especially for families and women, working at home or with items for our homes. They are aware of seasonal changes, the tides of time. We are now ripe for innovative planetary wide new businesses. Cancer likes to Mother, so will love helping get new startups going! Those that focus on community, sustainability will go the furthest. Though Cancer can be old fashioned, when they make up their mind to change, it happens quickly! Solid new Uranian friends will speed things along fluidly! 

FIXED STARS

Venus with Aldebaran at 9 Gemini 47. Robson gives a mixed review of Aldebaran. ‘It gives honor, intelligence, eloquence, steadfastness, integrity, popularity, courage, ferocity, a tendency to sedition, a responsible position, public honors and gain of power and wealth through others, but its benefits seldom prove lasting and there is also danger of violence and sickness. With Venus: Honor through literature, music or art, creative abilities, favorable for health and marriage.’

Venus with Rigel at 16 Gemini 50. Robson gives a more favorable account than his usual: ‘It gives benevolence, honor, riches, happiness, glory, renown and inventive or mechanical ability.’ With Venus: Honors or favors in middle life, good and influential marriage especially if female.’

Mercury makes its Retrograde Station at 14 Cancer 45, conjunct the powerful Fixed Star Sirius at 14 Cancer 05! The planetary turns in the retrograde cycles are important because they appear to be standing still for many days from the point of view of Earth. Mercury stations are 8 days, 4 before, 4 after. There is steeping, focus, incorporating and stabilizing what’s deemed to be a keeper. Sirius, the Dog-star, is the brightest star in the night sky, called the Prince of Princes! Robson says the Mercury/Sirius combination can bring ‘Great business success, help through influential people, worries unnecessarily, associated with the Church, physical defect through accident.’ UK astrologer Deborah Houlding says ‘…with its quick reaction, high energy and impetuous nature, in many respects fits the profile of ‘the puppy’, one of the titles by which it was traditionally known.’ At another level, Michael, the Archangel of the powerful First Ray, a brilliant blue, is associated with Sirius.

Aldebaran and Sirius are both Behenian fixed stars. Aldebaran is associated with Mars and VENUS. Sirius is with Jupiter, fame and fortune! Per Wiki: The Behenian fixed Stars are in a selection of fifteen stars considered especially useful for magical applications in the medieval astrology of Europe and the Arab world. Their name derives from Arabic bahman, “root,” as each was considered a source of astrological power for one or more planets.

Mercury Retrograde DNA!

About Retrogrades!  

Retrogrades are fascinatingly complex! The wild dynamics of retrograde cycles are, as viewed from Earth, that a planet appears to go forward, backward, then forward over the same ground three times, and if outer planets sometimes five, times! During that time, all the other planets are moving too, so even when a retrograde planet is going ‘backward’ over the same area, they are ALL going forward, even the retrograde planet! It’s illogical, but that’s what happens. Venus retrogrades about every 19 months for only about 40 days. Only 7–8% of the population has it in their natal chart. Mercury retrogrades 3 times a year, every 6 years 4 times. Mercury actually spends little time retrograde. In fact, only 18% of the population is born during Mercury retrograde! Mars retrogrades every 25/26 months for 60-80 days.

The good part is where people have retrograde planets they often have a special skill. The most successful Corporations often have a lot of retrograde planets – they keep working it until they are best, and they keep working it as time goes on. They go back, keep up, update! The type of special communication skills of Mercury retrograde depend on which sign, house and planets Mercury connects with in your chart and what type of connections are made. Check out the planets of your own chart and charts of babies born during retrogrades!

Venus makes beauty wherever she goes, whenever possible. She loves her possessions whether lovely things or sweet people. Venus is gifted with social skills, to cross boundaries of different cultures, faiths, skin color, genders, sexuality, financial standing, eccentricity. Sometimes she has low self esteem, out of fear can be selfish. Usually she is kindly and giving. Balance is best. She’s often exceptionally attractive and in love with love. Charm.

Mercury is the planet of the Mind, thinking, our attention, our breath and lungs, how we learn to learn, communication skills, gathering data, a hand shake, the laying on of hands. All of these are essential. Every Retrograde is unique by sign and where it happens in your chart! As time goes on the planetary backdrop changes. Context shifts. Retrogrades, like any other astro phenomena, evolve.

What a journey! If you are traveling, what amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. Maybe what’s behind is out of sight, a memory; what’s ahead is a mystery! Inward turns, like retrograde, give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. Outward bends like turning forward/Direct, extend our vision of potentials. This pair, being with air and water, shows us natural flow, keeps our Spirit fluid, makes us aware of deeper channels within us. Each turn, that Station, 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 have room to occur, new ideas are teased into action! Potential is remembered and we are rededicated.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers about issues of the sign(s) Mercury is retrograde in! Or, do everything to make it possible so it doesn’t fall through. Escrows can fall through. Use experienced brokers who can get it done no matter what. People don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! You lose your cell. You get lost, turned around. Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Date and 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.

This VENUS Retrograde is in GEMINI, Mercury’s sign, so it will be a lot like Mercury Retrograde. Venus flavoring Gemini will bring a longing for poetic exchanges, a genteel sharing. Venus loves touch and in Gemini signs up for a massage series (with your mask on, of course). Pretty up! Make up, clothes, add some new colors! Your posture, demeanor. Some voice training? Look like what you want to become to be! Gemini may try on a few roles, so give it some time to feel it. Is it what you really want or is it a step in the right direction? Write a few stories, make up a new resume, a fantastic name for your new business, advertise about what’s new. Let it change, morph, come by happenstance. Follow what’s in your spirit! Talk with your neighbors and sibs! Extend the loop to Soul Brothers and Sisters, kindred beings.

Our values, Venus, are significantly changing. Many are spending time at home, rethinking their choices in view of what’s deeply important from the context of life and death. Many are wanting to make their life count, to heal the planet to be a better place for our loved ones, children, young people, elders. Venus retrograde in Gemini will look at many facets as it considers all the angles. It may seem selfish to dwell on oneself so, but Gemini knows we all breathe the same air and we are all spiritually connected. In a sense, are all One. Each of our personal choices affects the web of life of all.

Wait on cosmetic body work or on starting long term dental work. Wait on redecorating, buying a new wardrobe, changing your company logo. You may decide to postpone Engagements and Marriages. It may be wise to wait until things have cleared a bit after the virus and the new economics many are facing. Many new businesses will be starting! Or it may be a special time to preciously hold each other to our hearts and together help each other through this difficult time into amazing new beginnings.

Clearly life doesn’t stop during retrogrades, and not all people’s charts are connected to all retrogrades. If your chart is connected to any given one, you will need to do your best and what you can. You can’t explain this to all people, maybe not your boss or even a good friend. Astrology? You’re nuts! Ok so there are times to find ways to stall or not connect, delay. You can estimate the possibilities of others not bringing certain papers to the meeting and bring them yourself, save the day! You can ask for a review of the current decisions 4 days or more after Mercury goes Direct/forward. If there are important must do meetings, Dr’s appts, call in advance to verify that the date and right time are on their calendars or yours! C-19 has changed a lot of longstanding appts. Don’t be surprised if the part didn’t come for your vehicle repair. Verify it is ordered, being sent to the correct address, the expected arrival date!

Document your work and events daily, save ALL emails and backup safely off the premises. No giving your passwords to anyone. If all goes well, fine. If not, all the pertinent information you need is available.

If you have other favorable prevailing aspects, especially with outer planets, then it is likely changes will ultimately be to your benefit. Do check with your astrologer for your good dates and times of day to make the best of it!

Be of good cheer, Things are going to be ok! Tutto Andra Bene!

Tutto Andra Bene. Everything will be OK.

Speak good words, think good thoughts, do good deeds. Pay it forward.

Pisces 2020 New Moon!

Sunday February 23 New Moon at 7:32 AM, 4 Pisces 29!

Six months 4 degree sequence, Two Four Planets Stelliums, Rare Bundle Chart, Mars Key Planet! Fixed Star Fomalhaut!

Pisces 2020 New Moon Mirrored Night Sky by Zhao

Our New Moon in Pisces is in the last sign of the Zodiac. What it sees and believes is what guides us into the Zodiacal New Year March 19, Spring Equinox. Pisces calls us to follow the dreams, make music to share the feeling of wonder, inspire the greatest outcome. We ponder the failures, the losses, that leave us with what’s better. We leave certain addictions behind, embrace what has been held in denial. It’s like being born again in the best ways possible, a promise to hold close to our hearts. At maturity, we place the treasures of our perception in Aries’ hands, the first sign of the Zodiac, to take action, introduce them, potently get them started! 

This New Moon chart happens to be the 2nd of three New Moons having those rare concentrated Bundle charts, this one having all the planets in only 119 degrees, a third of the Zodiac! The Aquarian New Moon had one, also with Mars/Uranus as defining planets! The Aries New Moon Bundle will be completely different, defined by Jupiter/Venus and have 6 planets between 0 and 6 degrees, very early degrees – very appropriate for the first sign of the Zodiac!   

Aries’ planet Mars, the planet of new beginnings, is the engine at the beginning of the Bundle, keeping it moving, pushing it along. Since Bundle charts are so concentrated and focused, we become immersed in our projects and need someone to keep us aware of our surroundings, to push into new territory. Now in Capricorn, Mars leads from behind, working quickly to put things in place, recover from errors, is highly efficient! It takes that intensity to get a solid start with a strong foundation.

Uranus in Taurus is leading the way scanning ahead for safe and sensible openings to use going into new lands. He’s using a solidarity probe to find stable ground to support collective efforts that Moon & Sun and Mercury are dreaming of! They just passed a sextile, an opportunity aspect to him, bringing him up to date with the lastest news and visions of what prevails in the eyes of the collective Spirit.

They also just checked in with Chiron in Aries, and are inspired by new healing techniques, teaching new things in new ways, being out in front with clever business consulting that is impressively fast and easy to implement! Chiron in Aries expects us to heal ourselves, be able to be strong in our work and keep up with local happenings! 

Stelliums are typical of Bundle Charts. Our New Moon has TWO 4 planet stelliums! 

Mars is in Capricorn along with the THREE outer planets still in Capricorn anchoring and building a solid foundation! They are the mountaineers of Spirit! Jupiter is Sagittarius’s planet, big hearted teacher and traveler. Jupiter has a great window to the Universe, broadens our senses, lights the possibilities along the way that flourish with potential! Expansion exceeds expectations! Ideas are gathered worldwide, coordinated in a timely fashion with excellent results! Jupiter is now at the very degree and sign when Pluto conjuncted the Ecliptic Oct 30 2018! It will be exact Feb 26! There may be reminders of that time! Pluto releases debris and toxins, for deeper connections, intimacy and healing to be possible. Pluto handles financial support to protect and promote the greater good. Saturn, Capricorn’s own planet, is the professional builder, provides shelter and the qualities of dedication, determination. It achieves award winning inspiration. Mars will soon be upon them, adding spitfire energy, making quick fixes that work and make the outcome even better, even while everyone is holding their breath at the last minute! 

The two 2020 4 planet stelliums not in Capricorn are 1) Feb 23 in Pisces, New Moon with Mercury and Neptune. 2) May 23 in Gemini with New Moon, Venus retrograde and Mercury.

This time, we have 4 in Pisces, Moon, Sun, they close with Mercury Retrograde. Moon and Sun are moving forward while Mercury Rx is returning to share his findings with them, a mutual conjunction. Neptune, Pisces’ own planet is a bit further on, midway through Pisces now. Moon, Sun and Mercury Rx are in relationships with Mars, the planet of Aries, the next sign after Pisces. Aries is Initiation, first responders, leaders. He is passionate, crazy fearless, a rights fighters in behalf of the underdog. They are heroes against the odds! Mars in Capricorn, Moon‘s opposite sign, can be a little scary for her. But she feels he has good intent, would be a protector, fight for women and children, homelands. She has double quick intuition and can dodge his demands and queries if she needs to. She may see precisely how he does things and may mimic his courage. Mars and Sun are both fire planets, and even in when in the Pisces soft mode, Sun is tempted to give it a try! Mars in Capricorn is an astute guide, nimble and can get you there even when you feel blind or distracted. Mars with Mercury Rx is looking for the spark of attention Mercury is redirecting, making things better. Mercury may speak in his behalf, admiring his fortitude in times of distress when he keeps right on working, pressing for improvements. He may seem abrupt at times, but Mercury can understand that may be what’s needed to wake people up and get going.

Our New Moon at 4 degrees Pisces is the fifth of a SIX months sequence of New Moons all at 4 degrees! 2019 Oct, Nov, Dec and 2020 Jan, Feb, Mar New Moons are all at 4 degrees! The signs are Scorpio, Sag, Cap, AQ, Pisces and Aries. All these Moons are sequentially resonant to each other! If you have factors at 4 degrees or very close to that, let’s say up to 2 to 3 degrees, in your astrology chart, they will be activated over and over. Each Moon being in a different Sign, your chart will be activated from different angles each time, some more favorably than others. Assess your progress, plan out the last of these months with your goal strongly in mind. 

Archangel Gabriel’s star Fomalhaut, watcher of the South, is less than a degree of the New Moon. This fixed star has been present in connection with all the 4° New Moons, but this time the same sign! The four Persian Royal stars, Aldebaran, Regulus, Antares, Fomalhaut, are the brightest stars in their constellations and among the 25–brightest stars in the night sky. The Persians considered these stars to be the four guardians of the heavens. In 3000 B.C., when as the Watcher of the South, Fomalhaut marked Winter Solstice. Fomalhaut is in constellation Piscis Austrinus (not Pisces) at the foot of Aquarius, at 3 Pisces 52. It is in service to Humanity. Dark Star Astrology says ‘Rather like Neptune, it can be magical and highly spiritual or just a no good, unscrupulous drunk. All the royal stars have the capability for glory, honor, riches, and fame, but they also have the greatest height to fall from. Their incredible power must be used wisely and with integrity.’

Back to Mars… Mars also squared Chiron and trined Uranus! With Chiron in Aries, Mars’ sign, the square is amplified and there is ambiguous harmony! If they disagree, if Mars is too pushy, there could be some hot moments. The healer/teacher may have you back off or banish you, oops. If Mars approaches with Capricorn respect, it is a whole nother story. They can work together. If Chiron admits there are some flaws in part of the new things he’s trying they can collaborate and, ok, let’s fix it. Uranus in Taurus is in harmony with companion earth sign Capricorn, and with fire fixer Mars! Uranus loves sudden flourishes that wake people up! Uranus wants change, and Mars loves new beginnings! Do it! Uranus holds Mars’ attention more than 5 minutes and Mars is thrilled to take several of his new friend’s ideas with him to the next foray!

So Mars is the key planet at 4 Capricorn. 1) It is the base of the Bundle chart and the Capricorn stellium. 2) It sextiles the New Moon and Sun. 3) It has squared Chiron in Aries, Mars’ sign and trined Uranus, the planet of Humanity. 4) It also sits at the Moon’s South Node, making sure we don’t forget how to lead the fray like we used to in past lives! Moon and Sun are sextle/trine the Moon’s nodal points, lending love, forgiveness, understanding and vision to the Mother/Father, home/career axis. Capricorn generally challenges Fire and Air signs, goes well with Earth and Water but not always Cancer, its opposite. 

To add a little more taste of Mars, Venus is in Aries, Mars’ sign! She, at 18°, is connected with Neptune at 17°  and Jupiter at 18° Capricorn! Venus in Aries loves a good fair fight, a polite challenge. She cheers her champions, ties her ribbon on their arm. She commends them to others who would engage their services. She brings the best out of her Neptune savior sweetie. Neptune in Pisces spreads that kindness to the others in Pisces our New Moon sign. Neptune and Pisces take a bit more of a chance seeing that lil Venus do it! Old and powerful as Jupiter in Capricorn might be, Venus is usually prettier and in this rare instance Jupiter gets less press! Imagine that! Jupiter is 99% at the top, yet Venus has gotten away with some new thing, a stunt, he huffily says, and she’s doing super well with it. He could try to crush her, but he can see there may be repercussions. No matter, she will be gone soon. Maybe he just needs to take his turn being the student. In Aries she will be little inclined to cater to his feelings. She has things to do, take it or leave it. If he wants to get on with it, in on the good stuff, he may need to go to her, and quickly, before the window closes. If he’s smart, he will give her all the information he gained in his sextile with Neptune on the 20th, and let her run with it! Though her style is not their style, she has the get up and go that they don’t! Her beauty will capture the hearts of people and the message of Jupiter/Neptune will be glorified like they couldn’t do! 

Jupiter and Neptune made their first sextile of three Feb 20! In general this New Moon carries their message forward! On a simple human basis I think of this aspect as ‘dreams come true!’ Jupiter is a super workhorse in Capricorn and Neptune in his own sign Pisces it the Dreamer of all Dreamers! The Capricorn stellium will put its efforts into building the bones and strengthening the dream. The Pisces stellium will feel the dream to the core so we don’t forget the wonderful promises we made. Jupiter Sextile Neptune 

Pluto and Saturn are still tightly meshed, though their exact conjunction was Jan 12. They are still working as one and both are also moving on, Saturn faster… Pluto has done his best to remove obstacles, cleanse debris that collected, renovate what can be saved, resurrect to new promise. Saturn, powerfully in his own sign, has seen what can be done and is a dedicated assistant. He will carry his toolbox of wisdom forward, working skillfully toward sustainability, an exponential example for all to see. He will take charge and be a model of our times. He has a lot to do between now and his sign change into Aquarius March 21!

Some things are still in recovery from Saturn and Pluto’s grip. It has been and is an honorable time even when painful. We are humbled, learn to maintain our lives in better ways. We get good at it and in the long term it may literally save our lives…or someone else’s. Some of us have helped ourselves by asking for help. Others can have sensible tips for us. Knowing that support is out there makes us know we are not the only one or all alone. Someone cares for us, even if it is a stranger. Hat’s off to you! One day at a time and be proud of it. Pay it forward when you can. 

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

Pisces, thank you for holding Spirit for us. Sometimes we forget just how important that is.

Virgo – Pisces Full Worm SuperMoon, Mercury Direct!

Monday March 9 at 10:48 AM Pacific 19 Virgo – Pisces 37

Bucket Chart with Moon Virgo Handle, 4 Planets Capricorn Stellium! Jupiter/Neptune lives on! Fixed Star Castor is well positioned.

Pisces Eldar Dragon Scholar Randal Spangler

Bookworm Virgo adores reading and writing; Pisces fantasy IS Magic! What better than a Full Moon and candlelight to contemplate the possibilities?! Eldar, Scholar of Ohm by the magical Randal Spangler

This is the first Full Supermoon of 2020! Depending on who is looking, we’ll enjoy a “season” of 3 full moon supermoons March 9, April 8, and May 7, 2020, and then have a “season” of 3 new moon supermoons on September 17, October 16, and November 15, 2020.

supermoon is a full moon or a new moon that nearly coincides with perigee—the closest that the Moon comes to the Earth in its elliptic orbit—resulting in a slightly larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as viewed from Earth. The technical name is a perigee syzygy (of the Earth–Moon–Sun system) or a full (or new) Moon around perigee.

Often when there are Bundle and Bowl charts, a 1/3 or 1/2 of a chart having all the planets, when Moon (or another planet) strikes out on her own, being the fastest planet, she is what we call the ‘handle of the Bucket chart!‘ The rest of the planets are still clustered behind her. The Full Moon is a classic time, when she is 180 away from the rest. She is the Seeker. She scans for whatever concerns them. She receives information that she filters back to the main body of planets. She carries/sends their messages, information, from the ones she connects with by degrees at any given time, out to their surroundings. Others outside the chart are alerted to Moon and her entourage. Pretty cool that our first SuperMoon is so knowledgeable, and holds such an important position!

This is the 3rd of 5, mid chart of 5 Full Moons that are Bucket charts. Each chart’s Moon is the Handle planet, Cancer, Leo, now Virgo, finishing with Libra and Scorpio! We start and end with a Water sign. Virgo is the only Earth sign. Very briefly, Cancer is home, family, women and children. Leo is Heart and Light, teacher. Virgo is caretaker in every way possible, healer, spiritual midwife and organizer. Libra makes social connections, negotiates, collaborates and partners. Scorpio tends the finances, saves lives, shares deep intimacy. This is a special sequence about relationships, deep caring for each other from birthing to dying. 

In that planet cluster behind Mother Moon, there still the same four planets stellium in Capricorn as were at the New Moon! Mars has closed up the gap and so close to Jupiter that big old Jupiter can feel the burn! It’s getting exciting and Jupiter feels a bit rushed at this point! Capricorn has deadlines and duties, commitments to keep. Jupiter is super close to Pluto now and we’re feeling a bit obsessed, even compulsive. How to learn as much as possible in the shortest time ever?!?! There are deals to be made and Souls to be healed! And don’t forget, places to go!!!

Jupiter sextiled Neptune Feb 20 and they are still less than 3 degrees apart. Special dreams are alive and well! Jupiter is approaching Pluto and The Sun is just past Neptune by a day. Mother Moon trines Jupiter and has just left opposition with Neptune. Sun and Moon have left sextile and trine with hardworking Mars, but Mars will maintain the action when it sextiles Neptune March 14th, then conjuncts Jupiter March 20th, a month later! So the Jupiter/Neptune connection powerfully lives on in and through the energy of our Full Moon! See more about Jupiter/Neptune!

This strong connection between these 5 planets empowers the long Jupiter conjunct Pluto March 12 to July 30. That can be a make you or break you kind of an aspect. We will need all the strength we have to do it well. It starts right after Mercury retrograde turns forward out of retrograde March 9. The Mercury Rx will stir the brew in Aquarius/Pisces. We will be ready for change and living in behalf of our brethren. Venus starts her Retrograde CYCLE April 9 and doesn’t complete the entire cycle until July 28, so most of her process will be during the Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. Her retrograde will be in Gemini, finding grace in communications. Jupiter wants Truth while Pluto opts for privacy. There will be some challenging delicate moments. Venus love will make all the difference.

Jupiter sextile Neptune, with us for the first of three times in 2020, wants the best possible for every Soul. Planning must include integrity, trust, beliefs to live by. The Sun, with Neptune and sextile Jupiter, identifies with this purpose, awareness of the needs of all Beings, giving his heart to this purpose to bring Light. Jupiter is dedicated in Capricorn, feels Mars coming up behind him, soon to stand at his side, then take that knowledge Jupiter offers on to Pluto, a tough customer! It will take a strong Mars to stand up to Pluto, pierce his armor. Mars in Capricorn is smart and practical, no time waster, and realistic. Pluto may not agree at first, but Mars has his respect. Pluto will mull it over. Saturn already went by Jan 12, so has already instilled a sense of urgency. Mars has upped the amps by saying NOW! 

Mother Moon in Virgo, the organizer, is on spot with Mars, will trine Jupiter and Pluto, then Saturn in less than 14 hours! She will offer her services, healing support, emphasize how to get started. She has been sweetened by Neptune’s compassion, gifted by his insights. Sun brightened her Spirit, so she still has a bit of a glow! They know she is sensible, knows her stuff. She is the perfect addition to the project. Moon will back up Jupiter’s plans with fascinating details that make the process smooth! Moon will sense Pluto’s deepest desires, offer her sorts of healing that he may feel safe to pull from his most powerful core knowledge, his Kundalini Fire within! Moon is Saturn’s natural opposite planet, his ‘reflection.’ She is Mother to his Father. He takes on mega commitments and needs sustaining care and feeding that only she can provide. Mercury, Virgo’s planet, is retrograde in Aquarius, a brilliant sign, at the same degree as Saturn! Saturn is earned Wisdom, is an exemplary Chief. Mercury offers him his best.

Saturn is on the brink of entering Aquarius March 21! Saturn senses the importance of Mercury’s Aquarian information. He is finishing up his 2+ years in Capricorn, as best he can, work he feels is crucial. This set of connections brings Saturn’s work to maturity and prepares him for solidarity entering a sign that is not the easiest for him to be in. It will be a bit shocking to conservative Saturn at first. Gonna take a bit of time to steady. 

Carrying the Starlight is Fixed Star Castor of Castor & Pollux. Castor is at 20 Cancer. Moon is Sextile; Sun is Trine! Excellent aspects. Jupiter is just past opposition at 21 Capricorn.                             

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

Castor seems quite fitting to this Full Moon chart. Pisces and its planet Neptune are concerned with matters of the immortal Soul. The Moon, the Bucket handle, is considered to hold memories of past lifetimes. Jupiter has to do with longevity, akin to immortality! 

Chiron and Uranus are still at 4 degrees, echoing our New Moon. Venus has just stayed at the Farm with Uranus in Taurus. He reminds her how good it is to be alive, walk barefooted, wear comfy clothes. He might surprise her with a hang glider ride or take her on a glider plane to survey the world. His incredible ideas refresh her body and Spirit! She remembers precious values, things she had always wanted. They chatted and he showed her how they are possible now, perhaps in even better ways than what used to be. Chiron is sizzling in Aries in the background daring her to go for it. Chiron is a good business person as well as a healer/teacher. They in turn are in league with Moon’s North Node in Cancer! See what the family can do, put their name on! Women and children may become an important part of the enterprise. She is intrigued and feels that little chill go up her spine when something special has happened!

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

► After the 10:48 AM Pacific Full SuperMoon, Mercury Retrograde turns Direct, forward at 8:49 PM! Mercury holds Station at each turn, the retrogrades and the directs. At this one he stands still from March 6 until Friday the 13th, 8 days at 28 Aquarius. Mercury is back at the deepest degree of its retrograde cycle, the position it started at. It reminds us of the reason for our intelligence, our Soul’s purpose, our own unique way of applying our consciousness. We have several days to consider what matters right now. Focus, be steady, take it in. Aquarius is the great sign of friendship, the connectedness of Humanity, what we can do together. SuperMoon and Sun have reached their widest capacity. Mercury has been collecting energy, is about to release it. If you have chart factors at or very close to 28 degrees, make this time count. It’s a sacred passage.

It can’t be all work! Sun/Neptune might as well head to the spa, rent the vacation condo at the resort, getaway. Start the day with a seaside sunrise breakfast…the rest will happen!

Mercury Retrograde Aquarius Pisces Wind and Waves Rainbow!

Winds break the sand loose, dust flies, ancient cities are discovered. The tornado picks you up and sets you down gently back where you came from. Waves scroll the ocean revealing treasure. You have a favorite diving place you return to time after time watching the underwater seasons…

2.13.20 Special Note: Mercury is holding Station from today until Feb 20, 8 days at 11/12° Pisces. Mercury retrogrades Sunday the 16th at 4:54 PM Pacific. You have several days to consider what matters right now. Focus, be steady, take it in. Pisces is our dreams, addictions, compassion, service in behalf of the Soul. If you have chart factors at or very close to these degrees, make this time count. It’s sacred.

Aquarius winds and Pisces waves are pure magic. Fresh air can be so clear your brain is electric bright with Spirit! Waves wash our Spirit clean. Our skin tingles! And, Lord knows, wind and waves can take us down. Nothing like engaging the elements in person!

2020’s first Mercury retrograde is a two sign retrograde with a tad of Aquarius and a lot of Pisces. Aquarius sets the stage for Pisces by gathering friends, the tribe, and humanitarian networks of Souls to do planetary service. Pisces can offer a resting place, make art and music that pulls our heartstrings. It’s not just a gathering of power in numbers, but a merging that transcends daily perception. There is a collaboration of sharing based on empathy, compassion. As healings happens, those people join the legion as they are able, to become leaders in their own right.

AQUARIUS  At the daily level we question our friendships, the electronics in our lives, how we do or don’t network, whether or how we care about humanity. Importantly is how we fear or embrace change. Do we lose personal control or stay steady while the process is unfolding, asking pertinent questions to facilitate the best results? Are we stubborn about some things, yet readily accept new and different about others?

AQ loves change, freedom, scientific exploration – especially electrical or flight related. Computers and networking delight them. Humanitarian causes can be their raison d’être! Air sports and birds delight them. They make great bankers and bartenders due to their detachment!

The Aquarian part of the retrograde is only the last two degrees, 28, 29, the ending degrees. Whatever we are finishing will be completed and refined. We may be at the ‘end of our rope.’ We can be so glad to be done, proud of our accomplishment, a little scared to step across the threshold, but excited too! Leo is opposite, Taurus and Scorpio may also be challenged, as well as Cancer, Virgo and Capricorn. Capricorn and Pisces are neighboring signs, so are well acquainted, not always delighted. Gemini and Libra may be happy to be lead on to remarkable connections or find Aquarius to be a little too exotic for them. Fire sign Aries loves this freedom lover; Leo may uplevel his colors or be a little embarrassed of his friend; Sagittarius can’t wait to go! But Aquarians often have friends from many walks of life, even with those who oppose!

PISCES is the servant or handmaiden of the gods, sits at the feet of the Great Spirit. Meditation, solitude, tuning in to the dreamtime, visions, often show the way. There is a wordless knowing, a song that hums in the background. The flip side of that is suffering, sometimes poverty, other times addictions, maybe both. Either way, there comes a time of empathy and understanding that makes us ‘hear’ our brother or sister’s distress and calls us to be there for them. We can be in recovery ourselves, praying the waves don’t toss us too far and we be lost. Every once in a while Aquarian thunder and lightning give us a glimpse of a possibility. Pisces is oceanic, both literally, and in vast imagination. It can be overwhelming and at the same time offer many options.

Daily Pisces loves soups, fish, terrific shoes, meandering the seaside, lighthouses, swimming, surfing, sailing. Water sports, a seaside business, cruises, harbors may be on their agenda. Music and huge concerts, resorts, spas and ashrams may offer much needed relaxation and restoration.

Mercury will traverse 0 to 12 Pisces, almost half of Pisces, then retrograde back to Aquarius. A lot of people will experience this Pisces part. Other water signs, Cancer & Scorpio, and earth signs, except Virgo, will likely enjoy the changes the retrograde brings. Air and fire signs will not be as comfortable in this water element.

Expect the matters of these signs to undergo changes. As we/Mercury shift directions, we will see things from a different perspective. Some things we may ready for, like safeguarding our computer. Other things will seem to spring upon us out of the blue. The completion of the whole 3 part cycle, forward, retrograde, then forward again, will leave us in better condition than when it started. We could be a little shell shocked, or right well pleased anyway! If it doesn’t connect with your chart, or connects favorably with your chart, and things are up to date, there may be no big changes at all.

In addition to the sky aspects, look in your own chart to see where 28 AQ to 12 Pisces fall, what house/s are involved. The matters of those houses are the place/s the retrograde will apply. Also check out how AQ/Pisces connect with other factors in your chart – we all have Aquarius and Pisces.

There are FOUR important planetary events during and following the retrograde! 

Most important are any major outer planetary combinations that happen just before, during or immediately after a retrograde cycle. The planetary connections Mercury makes during the retrograde cycle, especially the ones that repeat, flavor the cycle. Mercury helps prepare us for planetary aspects that follow, whether the aspects are in the sky or in your personal chart. And, of course, the connections Mercury makes, or doesn’t, with your chart factor in personally too! See your astrologer if you need help with this!

Stations bring special emphasis! A Station is the four days before and four days after Mercury turns directions, retrograde or forward/direct. It is a pause when Mercury literally appears to stand still in the sky for 8 days! Stations help us slow down, be still to receive, focus, take time to think, anchor important ideas we want to keep.

1. The first Jupiter sextile Neptune (the Pisces planet!) is Feb 20 when Mercury is at retrograde station at 12 Pisces! Jupiter in Capricorn makes business offerings that Neptune would find fulfilling. Might need some tweaking due to the retrograde, but with Neptune keeping the dream in mind, it could be adjusted to everyone’s satisfaction and be better than the original proposal! See more about the Sextile!

2 & 3. The Crown March 21 is while Mercury is finishing the last lap of its 3 part cycle. Things are concluding with Mercury, with Pisces, and with Saturn in the Capricorn Crown! That day Saturn enters Aquarius! Part of Mercury’s job he has been prepping for is to document the potent events at this time. It will take a fearless seer and a professional attitude to keep it clean, free of opinion. On the other hand, Pisces itself has a savior bias, an unchangeable connection to the Soul, and longs to see what’s better for the people, all people, to come to pass. A sympathy for those who suffer will be hard to avoid. Saturn in Aquarius wants to stop certain freedoms and/or secure some freedoms as an option. Both can be good; balance is perhaps what we seek. See all about The Crown! See about Saturn going from Capricorn, its own sign, to Aquarius!

4. The upcoming aspect being felt at the end of the Mercury Rx cycle is Jupiter conjunct Pluto! This can be a make you millions happening or make a huge mistake and lose a few. It can exaggerate your difficult condition or expand a good thing beyond your wildest dreams! It can be sadly obsessive, exceptionally cruel, or a healer with the most extraordinary abilities comes your way. In the US the particular importance of this aspect will be at the US Presidential Elections November 3. Its third aspect, the mature aspect, will be Nov 12 just afterwards, in other words, THE aspect of the Elections, exactly at the same degree and sign as the recent Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto! In the time following the retrograde Mercury will most freshly analyze recent happenings from a Pisces, then Aries point of view while Jupiter makes those first two conjunctions. Some of these observations will be of the history of events leading up to the Election. Jupiter wants the Truth, especially the secret truths. Pisces intuits and Aries follows up, fearlessly probes. We have a good chance of learning a lot.

04 through June 29! Jupiter conjunct Pluto first and second aspects

Mercury makes only one repeated planetary aspect during its retrograde cycle, Feb 5 & 28 and March 22 – the day after The Crown and Saturn’s sign change into Aquarius! While in Pisces, Mercury sextiles Uranus, the planet of Aquarius!!! Uranus is now in Taurus, the sign of Mother Earth. This gives an Aquarian tone to Mercury’s attention, kinda Spock-like, detached, logical. It looks for changes, cracks in the armor of old ways, quirks, idiosyncrasies, openings to network with spiritually connected people with the planet’s well being uppermost in their minds. It gives Mercury a rather unique and creative approach with his perceptions. His writings won’t all be logical, but deeply instinctual as well. His outlook will be more comprehensive than usual. There will be a mixture of fate and forging a future.

Concurrently Mercury also aspects the Fixed Star Fomalhaut at 3 PISCES 52 (in the year 2000) three times Feb 5 & 28 and March 21! This last date, March 21 IS the day of The Crown and Saturn leaving its own sign Capricorn, entering Aquarius! Fomalhaut was one of the four Royal Stars of Persia in 3000 B.C., when as the Watcher of the South it marked the winter solstice. Vivian Robson says “Many losses and disappointments, unlucky in business, better servant than master, writes or receives secret letters, worry through slander, imprisonment or damaged reputation.” Bernadette Brady says “The poet or the liar.” Modern astro scientist Elsbeth Ebertin says ‘Fomalhaut has a Mercury-Venus character with a blending of Neptune influence. According to tradition, this star is of quite variable effect, either very good or very bad, depending on the overall cosmic structure [of your chart]. It is assumed, however, that the helpful influence is the greater one and if in conjunction with Mercury, it is said to stimulate mental capabilities and promise success as a writer or scientist.’ This implies some fortuitous observations and insights helpful to our future. Let it be! People who have it connected with their Mercury: Patrick MacNee, George Van Tassel, Bobby Womack, Dick Emery, Franz Schubert, Bruce Willis, Nancy Spungen, James Joyce, Dane Rudhyar, Holly Johnson. See more about Fomalhaut!

As I said, Mercury will document these happenings, especially The Crown and Saturn’s sign change. Saturn’s sign change has more significance than at first glance. It starts a long chain of Aquarian/Uranian aspects through Feb 2022. Saturn remains in Aquarius until March 7 2023, just days before Pluto’s sign change into Aquarius March 23, 2023! All that prepares us for Pluto’s sign change!

Mercury Retrograde DNA

About Retrogrades!  

Retrogrades are fascinatingly complex! The wild dynamics of retrograde cycles are, as viewed from Earth, that a planet appears to go forward, backward, then forward over the same ground three, if outer planets sometime five, times! During that time, all the other planets are moving too, so even when a retrograde planet is going ‘backward’ over the same area, they are ALL going forward, even the retrograde planet! It’s illogical, but that’s what happens. Mercury retrogrades 3 to 4 times a year. Mercury actually spends little time retrograde. In fact, only 15% of the population is born during Mercury retrograde!

The good part is where people have retrograde planets they often have a special skill. The most successful Corporations often have a lot of retrograde planets – they keep working it until they are best, and they keep working it as time goes on. They keep up! The type of special communication skills of Mercury retrograde depend on which sign, house and planets Mercury connects with in your chart and what type of connections are made. Check out your own chart and the charts of babies born during Mercury retrograde!

Mercury is the planet of the Mind, thinking, our attention, our breath and lungs, how we learn to learn, communication skills, gathering data, a hand shake, the laying on of hands. All of these are essential. Every Retrograde is unique! As time goes on, the planetary backdrop changes. Context shifts.

What a journey! If you are traveling, what amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. Maybe what’s behind is out of sight, a memory; what’s ahead is a mystery! Inward turns, like retrograde, give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. Outward bends like turning forward/Direct, extend our vision of potentials. This one, being with air and water shows us natural flow, keeps our Spirit fluid, makes us aware of deeper channels within us. Each turn, that Station, 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 have room to occur, new ideas are teased into action! Potential is remembered and we are rededicated.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers about issues of the sign(s) Mercury is retrograde in! Or, do everything to make it possible so it doesn’t fall through. Escrows can fall through. Use experienced brokers who can get it done no matter what. People don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! You lose your cell. You get lost, turned around. Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Date and 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.

Clearly life doesn’t stop during retrogrades, and not all people’s charts are connected to all retrogrades. If your chart is connected to any given one, you will need to do your best and what you can. You can’t explain this to all people, maybe not your boss or even a good friend. Astrology? You’re nuts! Ok so there are times to find ways to stall or not connect, delay. You can estimate the possibilities of others not bringing certain papers to the meeting and bring them yourself, save the day! You can ask for a review of the current decisions 4 days or more after Mercury goes Direct/forward. If there are important meetings, Dr’s appts, call in advance to verify that the date and right time are on their calendars. Don’t be surprised if the part didn’t come for your vehicle repair. Verify it is ordered!

If you have other favorable prevailing aspects, especially with outer planets, then it is likely changes will ultimately be to your benefit. Do check with your astrologer for your good dates and times of day to make the best of it!

Speak good words, think good thoughts, do good deeds. Pay it forward.

Please, always remember these planetary combinations are what’s happening in the world. Check with your astrologer to see how they do, or don’t, activate your personal chart! May it go very well with you….

Mercury Retrograde 2019 Scorpio Snake River Tetons

An S curve (‘retrograde’) along the mighty Snake River! Exceptional image of the Snake River and the Grand Tetons by Vern Clevenger!

The Snake River is a major river of the greater Pacific Northwest region in the United States. At 1,078 miles long, it is the largest tributary of the Columbia River, in turn the largest North American river that empties into the Pacific Ocean. There are three water signs, Cancer – creeks, Scorpio – mighty rivers, Pisces – oceans of the world. Scorpio also rules reptiles and the hisssss factor, Snakes! And as the 8th sign, figure 8s, the Mobius loop!

Scorpio is big rivers that require a bridge to cross. I usually think of them as the freight and passenger carrying commercial rivers, like the Mississippi in the US, the Nile and Congo, the Amazon, China’s Yangtze, the largest river in Asia. In July 2019, Bangladesh’s top court granted all the country’s rivers the same legal rights as humans, same as New Zealand’s Whanganui River. Rivers are vital to life.

Some rivers are more gentle than others; there are dangerous rapids and magnificent views as we paddle slowly, maybe silently. Some have dramatic seasonal changes, dry or floods. There are areas of little or huge population concentrations at certain locations. Mercury in Scorpio enjoys solitude and intensity. Turnings will keep them engaged in maneuvering and wondering what’s next. They are scuba diving or paddleboarding for all they’re worth down the rapids!

The Mercury retrograde cycle offers a taste of three phases in its retrograde direction shifts. Those shifts bring visual changes as the planets progress with it. First, we’re on fresh ground, curious, Mercury views the possibilities. 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 and revisions are made. Third and last is the part when Mercury turns Direct, ‘forward’ again, covering that same ground the third time! We work toward resolution, establishment of successful new ground. We tidy up, polish things up, complete and present it to the world! We get three chances, thank goodness!

This is the last of 2019’s three predominantly water sign Retrograde cycles.

Phase 1 starts Oct 11 2019. Mercury retrogrades Halloween, Oct 31! He turns direct, forward Nov 20 and finishes the three phases Dec 7. It starts at 11 Scorpio 35, retrogrades at 27 Scorpio 28. Goes back to 11/35, turns forward to the peak position 27/28.

October 

11  Scorpio Mercury Retrograde cycle starts
13  Full Hunter’s Moon
31  Halloween, Mercury Retrograde

November
8    Saturn sextile Neptune
11 Transit of Mercury retrograde eclipse
12 Full Beaver Moon
19  Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center
20  Mercury Direct

Mercury is the planet of the Mind, thinking, our attention, our breath, how we learn to learn, communication skills, gathering data, a hand shake, the laying on of hands. All of these are essential. Scorpio concerns our deeper thoughts, the causes underlying our symptoms, our reasons for choosing to live. It too wants to communicate, like a therapist, healer shaman, to remove the pain under the crust of suffering. Sexuality, sexual organs and eliminatory matters may concern us. Obsessions and compulsions, extremes of behavior can be a challenge. Scorpio cares so deeply, till death do us part. Monies matter. Incorporating, merging funds can make so many more things possible. Scorpio is a super strong sign, can endure extremes, heals miraculously, practically comes back from death to renewed life!

Every Retrograde is unique! As time goes on, the planetary backdrop changes. Context shifts. This Retrograde is especially important because Saturn and Scorpio’s planet Pluto have been traveling along together and will conjunct not too long from now, Jan 12, 2020! What ‘soil’ we turn now will affect our thinking about how we want to manifest that conjunction in our own lives. See more

Most important are any major outer planetary combinations that happen just before, during or immediately after a retrograde cycle. The planetary connections Mercury makes during the retrograde cycle, especially the ones that repeat, flavor the cycle. And, of course, the connections Mercury makes, or doesn’t, with your chart factor in personally! See your astrologer!

This time is super unique! There are THREE planetary events, two of them major, during the retrograde!

  • Nov 8 Saturn sextiles Neptune. This is the last of a six aspect set that started Jan 2019! Saturn wants to make Neptune’s dream come true, to harness Neptune visions, convert them to reality! See more!
  • Nov 11, eleven, eleven, is the Transit of Mercury retrograde eclipse! Mercury crosses the face of Sun, receiving a huge infusion from Sun, our local Star! The infusion comes in the form of LIGHT, enlightenment, if you will. Mercury himself will be lighted up, his ideas become brighter, the dross will be burned away. It will be an ultimate mindfulness! See more  Nov 12 Full Beaver Moon! 
  • Nov 19 is the amazing sister aspect, Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center, the center of our Milky Way Galaxy, all the stars we know! Jupiter, our biggest planet, will do the job. In this case, the infusion is invisible to us, but is monumental nonetheless! It happens every 12 years, but coupled with the Transit of Mercury, this is a whole lot of STAR energy all at once! I think of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot as the third eye of our solar system, another Seer, perceiver, like Mercury. In fact they rule opposite signs, Gemini and Sagittarius. Jupiter is thought of as higher education, purpose and meaning, faith and trust in the future, our Path in life. An infusion here has great meaning. It happens when Mercury is in STATION – maximum absorption, and Jupiter is in his own sign Sagittarius, doubling the potency!! See more

    The Stations! A Station is the four days before and four days after Mercury turns directions, retrograde or forward/direct. It is a pause when Mercury literally appears to stand still in the sky for 8 days! Stations help us slow down, be still to receive, focus, take time to think, anchor important ideas we want to keep. Nov 19 is right in the eight day Mercury direct station, right before Mercury turns direct on the 20th!

Mercury makes three repeated aspects during its retrograde cycle.

  • Oct 13 it starts with sextile Saturn. Focused on sensible ideas, time well spent, consulting with professionals, the project is established. Rx Nov 13, last Nov 29.
  • Oct 15 Mercury trines Neptune! Believe it! Neptune has extraordinary insight and visions. Mercury puts the words to them and spreads the word. It’s logical and magical! Rx Nov 13, last Nov 28.
  • Oct 19 Mercury sextiles Pluto! Mercury takes a look into the power zone! It follows the money, finds out what’s deeply important – life or death, seeks crucial healing insights. Is it a mate or a merger? Rx Nov 9, last Dec 2.

In addition to the sky aspects, look in your own chart to see where 11 to 27 Scorpio fall, what house/s are involved. The matters of those houses are the place/s the Mercury in Scorpio retrograde will apply. Also check out how Scorpio sits in your chart – we all have Scorpio. When in the same or close degrees to that 11 – 27, it has challenge type connections with your factors in other fixed signs, Taurus, Leo and Aquarius, fire sign Aries, and air sign Gemini. Things go more smoothly with other water signs Cancer and Pisces, earth signs Virgo and Capricorn.

About Retrogrades!  

The wild dynamics of retrograde cycles are, as viewed from Earth, they go forward, backward, then forward over the same ground three, if outer planets sometime five, times! During that time, all the other planets are moving too, so even when a retrograde is going ‘backward,’ they are ALL going forward! It’s illogical, but it happens. Mercury retrogrades 3 to 4 times a year. Mercury actually spends little time retrograde. In fact, only 15% of the population is born during Mercury retrograde! The good part is where people have retrograde planets they often have a special skill. The most successful Corporations often have a lot of retrograde planets – they keep working it until they are best, and they keep working it as time goes on. They keep up! The special communication skills of Mercury retrograde depend on which sign, house and planets Mercury connects with in your chart. Check out your own chart and the charts of babies born during Mercury retrograde!

Whether doing Scorpio water sports or business, working with important water resources, restoring riparian habitat, what a journey! If you are traveling, 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 river bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. Outward river bends extend our vision of potentials. Being with water shows us natural flow, keeps our Spirit fluid, makes us aware of deeper channels within us. Each turn 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 are teased into action! Scorpio can feel clean again, refreshed. Potential is remembered and we are rededicated.

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. You get lost, turned around. Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Date and 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.

Scorpio rules homes medical matters, renovations, plumbing, marriage/divorces/custody, wills, mortgages, loans, grants, corporations. If you must make arrangements during the Rx, review it after the cycle is finished and see if you still feel the same way. Wait to purchase that motorcycle, scuba gear, dive equipment, a water related item or vehicle or a  boat, super expensive wine or sunglasses. Get the insurance. Scorpio is an intimate sign. Likely better to wait to share secrets, have first time sex until at least the retrograde is over. Projects, certain alliances, or therapies may depend on confidentiality. Oh, and things lost previously are sometimes are found, or if lost this retrograde, are found during the next retrograde!

Do check with your astrologer for your good dates and times of day to make the best of it!

Speak good words, think good thoughts, do good deeds. Pay it forward.

New SuperMoon! Black Moon?! 

4 Planet Leo Stellium, SuperMoon, Mercury turns Direct at 8:58 PM Pacific! All those trines, Venus, Mars, Lucky Jupiter! 

Aquarius – LEO Full Grain Moon!

22° Sun, Venus & Moon with Pluto & more! Mercury – Chiron & Uranus!

LEO New SuperMoon! Black Moon?!

Wednesday July 31 New Moon at 8:12 PM Pacific, 8 Leo 37

It’s a calendar function! In the US it is our second July New Moon. A second one in a month is called a BLACK MOON! East of us it will occur August 1, the first of two in August for them! Their Black Moon will be the second New Moon in August, Friday Aug 30. 

4 Planet Leo Stellium, SuperMoon, Mercury turns Direct at 8:58 PM Pacific! All those trines, Venus, Mars, Lucky Jupiter! 

Leo 2019 New Moon New Beginnings

This New Moon will start a ‘season’ of three Super New Moons, July 31/August 1, August 30 – the closest, and September 28. They will be brighter and may appear bigger! More about Super Moons! Per NOAA, Santa Barbara CA will have a high 6.98 tide and a low -1.26!
 
A HOT 4 Planet fiery LEO stellium! Venus, Sun, Moon and Mars! Sweetie Venus, the New SuperMoon combo, and Mars clearing the way! Sun and Moon recently got their loving as they joined Venus. They are now on their way toward sassy Mars! Moon will get there on the next day, Aug 1 – see more below. Sun is a different story. Mars jumps into Virgo before Sun catches up. They won’t connect exactly until Labor Day, Sep 2 at 10 Virgo. Things they have been thinking about will get done then!
 
Mercury turns Direct at 8:58 PM Pacific! New Moons are new beginnings, and this one especially so with Mercury poised to get moving forward! New Moons can be a seeming point of stillness as Moon & Sun join in the dark night, and Mercury in Cancer has been steeping his thoughts while in the time of turning, called a Station. Stations hold our thoughts – focus, refine, anchor. It’s a doubly potent combination! See more about Mercury Retrograde!

Though we can’t see it, it is a spectacular New SuperMoon! King SUN in his own sign LEO, with Queen Mother Moon joining him, ever willing to celebrate the Sun God’s glory! They embrace, he is delighted with her company. He seats her at his side, warming her very Soul. She brought him luscious breads made of the grains of summer’s wealth. Who knows? They might be having some fresh strawberry jam too! She has been watchful of people’s needs in her pilgrimage around the signs, let’s him know so he can shine radiance to fall upon them and brighten their ways, to help them see what’s best to do next. He wants them to know what is in their own hearts, to BE true, to let their talents rise! It’s a special time of learning. The Great Spirit is afoot! 

Our New SuperMoon is at 8 LEO! Eight is the symbol of Infinity! Leo is the Light sign, infinite Light. Dark Scorpio is the 8th sign. We seek a balance, both being part of truth, a wholeness. Be courteous to each other. Dark allows us to see within, what motivates us. Light shows the way so we can take action, not stumble. 

Venus is bringing her Grace and Blessings to Moon & Sun! She brings love, appreciation, kindness, and, LOL, sometimes money, generous funding. In Leo she loves to love, is romantic and loves being waited on. Chocolates, please. She deserves all since she adorns the gathering, is the Princess to the Leo King and Queen! She teaches us to love ourselves and make beauty in all we do. She brings the flowers, sparkling stones, the stunning lighting at concerts! She recognizes intrinsic value and makes even the most simple things powerfully attractive for what they are. She sponsors young artists who don’t yet know the amazing capacity they have. 

Venus is trine, the most favorable connection, Chiron! He too in a fire sign, Aries, the instigator! She sees what a superb first responder he is, instinct on the ready at a moment’s notice. She values his shamanic wisdom, sends healing when he falters, as the best of us can do. They may decide to invest in some medical research or businesses that provide educations of different types. He can be gruff and rough at times, just needing to get things done soonest. Venus may be the buffer, go between, and smooth the way. He may move on, Aries always has new things to do, but sharing the ideas was Ace! She will remain and put them on the map to stay.

Venus will also face the Stranger, Uranus. He is odd, surprising, a genius. He may act alone or bring her to the humanitarian gathering working in behalf of planetary need. She may feel ready to rock or be a little intimidated and overwhelmed at first. Or she may see how the group works and start her own! They may stay friends, see each other once in a while, or never see each other again, but she will remember that wild encounter!

Moon, Sun, and Venus will all trine lucky Jupiter in the third fire sign Sagittarius! Moon to Jupiter Aug 1, Sun Aug 7, Venus Aug 8. Jupiter is often famous, a well-known traveler or publisher, a teacher forever. He expands everything. Kinda a Midas touch! He races, gambles, loves and leaves – but it was so much fun while it lasted! He is in his own sign these days. As a truth seeker, he really speaks forthrightly, has integrity and often strong opinions. Moon may be a bit leery of him, maybe a little too slick for her conservative instincts. He may have to prove himself to her over a period of time. Sun will call him Bro. Venus holds her own, knowing she has her own following, and can make his even better. She’s no fool. She may be romanced, but she knows when that is happening. She’s been romanced by the best. They could run away together…

Aug 1 Moon catches up with Mars! He is impatiently waiting since he recently trined Jupiter July 25 and is full of ideas of great potential! Jupiter gave him some super perspectives and he wants to get going, knows just what to do next. In Leo he certainly has the prowess to do it! Some will think he’s too pushy or discount him as a ladies man, but just the same, he has things to do and someone’s got to do it! Mars leaves Leo before Sun and Venus catch up. They do lend a sympathetic encouragement, but perhaps not closely enough to do much good. Moon will be the key, taking info from them to Mars, quickly so, and that’s it. It will be up to Mars to follow through on his own.  

Mars has just inconjuncted Neptune. They consulted. Mars came with all his heart. Neptune probably felt a bit invaded, but was intrigued and offered some ideas of a greater purport than of one individual’s needs. Mars offered to make Neptune’s dreams come true, and Neptune believed him, seeing Mars’ vigor and earnestness. He spoke to Mars that Mars’ intentions are symbolic of the needs of many people’s. Mars can’t always be totally solo and independent, but he can be a very clever advisor, instigate and lead potent actions, show others how to do it themselves!

Mars’ closest upcoming aspect is his inconjunct with Pluto in Capricorn. They are kin – both fighters. Mars is a frontline in-their-face crazy fearless leader. Pluto leads from behind, around, at night, a ninja no one sees. He’s doing financial dealing, wielding political connections, changing the flow of directions. Mars may be seeking a potent ally to take a public stand, to place money where it will count in the fight for the cause. A frontal approach may not work this time – Mercury is still retrograde, all is not apparent yet. Give it some time; come back later. If you make a proposal, don’t expect it to come out as intended. It may be outstandingly better!

Saturn is retrograde in Capricorn, still near Pluto though fading back for a while. He is still traveling closely at the Moon’s South Node. There is a karmic condition that needs righting, forgiving. Old fears need to be released, power used correctly. Dharma is the replacement. Take responsibility, stay steadfastly on mission, rebuild, upgrade. Meet your tests, give gratitude, have a workable humility. Be clean and kind in your authority. Stay aware of the time frame, priorities. Neptune sextile/trine the Nodes will help. Trust your intuition, remember the long range needs of the planet and all her peoples. Collaborate. Keep your dreams in mind.

Fixed Star Antares, 9 Sagittarius 46, is the big bad wolf in traditional astrology! Per Elsbeth Ebertin: ‘A Mars nature, in which the powers of Mercury and Jupiter and Saturn are also added. Antares makes people tough, belligerent and pugnacious. This is an important star for military personnel and is said to convey mental alertness, strategic ability and courage and to make dare-devils, especially if tied up with the MC, Ascendant, Sun or Jupiter. According to tradition, Antares is of violent character and is credited with being significant for a violent death, either in battle or by process of law. On the other hand, danger may come about by fire, weapons or machinery. Antares is also said to be unfortunate for the eyes, if in conjunction with the Ascendant, Moon or Sun and this has proven to be the case by later researchers.’ In this case the New Moon TRINES Antares, a favorable connection. Hopefully this will tip things to the positive side. See more!

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

ALL this is happening while Mercury is still Retrograde. BUT, Mercury is in station. That means Mercury is ‘standing still’ contemplating, focusing, absorbing, anchoring. Mercury goes Direct, turns forward, only 46 minutes after the New Moon! The New Moon is right in the core of Mercury’s eight days of steeping in Cancer! Mercury stations are 4 days before and after Mercury turns direct. At this point, Mercury is in Moon’s sign, attention on family matters, business, culture, what it means to be a child – growing up, how we feel, natural cycles and rhythms, on being a woman or Mother. These are elemental functions. Mercury thinks, makes connections, sibling to sibling, neighbor to neighbor. There is exchange, collaboration, shifting awareness. With this change of direction, we are moving forward, looking to apply our gains.

Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are part of!


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

Neptune is now at 18 degrees, tuned to the Ecliptic, and June events, will be connected with Transit of Mercury! Pluto is now at 21 Capricorn close to the 22/23 degree events

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

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

Leos, we are counting on you to keep that Light steady! 


It’s a calendar function! In the US it is our second July New Moon. A second one in a month is called a BLACK MOON! East of us it will occur August 1, the first of two in August for them! Their Black Moon will be the second New Moon in August, Friday Aug 30.

Aquarius – LEO Full Grain Moon! 

Tuesday August 15 at 2:38 PM Pacific 24 Capricorn/Cancer 04 

22° Sun, Venus & Moon with Pluto & more! Mercury – Chiron & Uranus!

LEO Full Moon Paddling Windsurf Station Premantura Croatia!

Summer paddling, swimming naked, kayaking are all fun under a Full Moon! Stop at Windsurf Station on your trip this summer! Skoljic beach, Premantura, Croatia
       
22 is the number for our Full Moon! 2 is a stable number, a number of solidarity, of Taurus our #2 Sign, all four feet on the ground! Double #s are considered to have more power, called master numbers by numerologists. Two is so solid it has ownership. There is agreement to hold the ground, possibly having mineral wealth or have land value that has steadily risen over the years. 

Leo and Aquarius, along with Taurus and Scorpio, are called Fixed Signs. Taurus is easy to understand, rules Earth herself. Scorpio is ‘captured,’ what is underground, the spiritual underworld. Leo is the Sun Star that always shines. Aquarius is the fixed Air mass that surrounds Earth! The Sun is up in that arena as well. We look up to it, in many cultures, as the Creator. Without it the crops die.

Leo is the sign of the Heart, the Heart of Light, Life. As the dross is burned away, we become more and more ourselves. We started out as our parent’s child. Some don’t become themselves until they become much older and so many things don’t mean so much anymore. We be ourselves with no apology. 

Venus, right with Sun, shows us how to love ourselves just the way we are. She blesses, makes beauty, shows kindness. She creates the most fantastic colors and lights of great magnitude that shower us just as surely as Sun Himself, she but reflecting him! Sweet radiance comes from her heart. Her glance, her smile our way, her touch, mean so much. It’s like fine wine to our Spirits and we can carry on. She glows and shimmers like a sweet sunset slipping into a silky sea. 

Moon is opposite, feeling remarkable in the midst of the Aquarian network! She visits every month, so is used to it sort of, but air is not her natural element. She is basically a stay-at-home water planet, but she is always curious what’s going on, what’s new. She is very conscious of community, and this one, Aquarius, is super bigger, the community of humanity! What an array! She watches with her photographic memory, gathers insights into her bowl of wisdom, takes the best home with her. Things can be a little crazy in Aquarius, but she has a way about her to comfort all ‘children’ of the Light, no matter what. She is instinctively recognized as such, someone to be trusted when people need calming.

Sun and Venus in romantic Leo are ready to meet the unique Moon Aquarius character! They will select unusual entertainment, exotic restaurants. Aquarius will be impressed by the Leo entourage, brilliance, while Leo will be impressed by Moon’s friend’s amazing intelligence and memory for facts past, present & future, far and wide! They all have much to share! On the other hand, Leo may feel a bit upstaged, and Moon, in one of her rare moments, is not impressed at all by Leo. In Aquarius she may be more interested in the world at large than in Leo’s exploits, seemingly self-centeredness. If they can discover mutual causes, Moon can invite Sun/Venus Leo to dedicate part of the take, publicize the cause as a fundraiser, and Moon in Aquarius can get up on stage and tell some of the story behind it, bring them to tears. There can be comfortable and profitable collaboration. Each helps the other, the world is a better place. 

5 Planet Virgo Stellium to come! Though Sun and Venus are close enough to Mars, also in Leo, and are inspired by his leadership, they don’t catch up with him in Leo. Moving quickly, he goes into Virgo first. Venus, then Sun and Mercury follow him to make four planets in Virgo! The August 30 New SuperMoon, the closest of our three SuperMoons in a row, will have all five inner planets in Virgo, a five planet last of summer, back to school, stellium! It starts late afternoon the 29th Pacific time until late afternoon the 31st! At the SuperMoon it will be a tight line up at 2, 6, 6, 7 and 11 degrees! See the Timetable and Chart!

Sun, Venus and our SuperMoon can give so much! Sun is generous, a big Soul. Venus can’t help but love it UP! Moon in Aquarius nurtures the planetary family. Spread those arms wide open. Be like the Statue of Liberty at the gateway. Let that Light shine!

All these pups are connected with Pluto at 21 Capricorn. In the background illegal immigrants are under fire, or should I say ICE? In the days before our Full Moon, Sun/Venus inconjuncted Pluto. Perhaps some were fortunate to have adjustments made about their cases. Leo and the Moon both rule children. The imprisoned children separated from their families have been suffering. There may be radical news on both sides of this matter. Full Moons, by their very nature of opposing signs, symbolized by Libra, the sign of Balance, may be able to negotiate effectively, or with Pluto in the mix, which can be hate, conditions could worsen. If that happens, it will be done quietly while the prison owners make more money. It’s big business.

Mercury in Leo trining Chiron in Aries may be of some help. Mercury may have gathered information that makes news. At the private level, Mercury no longer Retrograde, may be ready to set up a new business, get some quick healing from a master, be back at school studying brilliant inspiring new things with amazing instructors! Mercury will be curious about spiritual developments, symbolism.

Mercury is now squaring Uranus! Each can be stubborn in those fixed signs Leo/Taurus. Leo is looking at personal effects while Uranus, the planet of Aquarius, wants to know how you personally affect our planet! He puts the responsibility squarely at your feet, on y/our mental doorstep. Leo strives to be a good person. Mercury asks for ideas how to do it. Mercury can get bored, so even if Uranus seems a bit odd at first, Mercury will still listen. Mercury in a fire sign is pretty fast, whereas Uranus in Taurus could go into slo mo tempo and Mercury has already skipped off. Keep watch on the conversation. Speed up or slow down. Talk a shorter time, agree to meet again later or quite soon. Don’t let it lapse and miss the window. It could be wonderfully provocative!

Jupiter in Sagittarius is no longer retrograde, has turned forward. He will be squaring Neptune retrograde in Pisces the third time, but not until Sep 21. They are approaching to meet each other – Jupiter going forward; Neptune retrograding. Preview

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

Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are part of!

The Full Grain Moon Sun, Venus, Moon and Pluto at 21 and 22 degrees are all precisely engaged with the Jan 12, 2020 Saturn conjunct Pluto, the Crown, and Jupiter conjunct Pluto at the 2020 elections! ♦ Read on…

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

Neptune is now at 17 degrees, tuned to the Ecliptic, and June events, will be connected with Transit of Mercury! Pluto is now at 21 Capricorn close to the 22/23 degree events

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

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

Leos, we are counting on you to keep that Light steady!

LEO 2019-20 Celestial HighLights

Golden LEO, the Sign of Hearts!

Aquarius is considered the sign of being electrified, but it is its opposite Leo that has the electric hair – some blowout style or an outrageous color! Just as big as the ruff on a Lion, king of the savanna! Often Leos are dignified royalty wearing the crowns! Gold is their color, whether it is that fine ring or the color of the summer savanna. In the northern hemisphere it is the time of Lammas, first harvests, the golden grains for breads. Lammas is usually between 1 August and 1 September.

Leo, the Sign of Hearts, have big warm loving hearts! They fill the space when they walk in a room and take over. They light up our lives and are the life of the party, the Sunflowers of the garden!

High Fashion and elegance goes with the territory. And only the best will do. Luxury suites, the big flashy rings. They can appear to be snooty, with their nose up in the air (literally). They are surveying the possibilities, carrying themselves proudly, yet they can be the most entertaining instructors! They read their audience well, know when they have struck a chord and capitalize on it! They can lead a merry band right on through that math class or out of the disaster area to safety! Heroes!

If Leos seem full of themselves, a bit pompous, they are! They are supposed to BE themselves, come out into the world, be away from their parents and find their own place in the Sun, make their own special contribution. It’s a teenage time in Spirit when young people have their first love. Hopelessly romantic they are dramatically heartbroken when they love and lose. When they Love, they Love! If your friend is a Leo, out to dinner and chocolates will help.

Laying on the savanna is one thing, but Leo Lions are fearless, protect their cubs, and hunt prey twice their size and more! Leos can party down, but know if things get serious you better hope they are on your side! They are super graceful natural athletes, are determined, have prowess you can bet on!

Bring my luggage, get my shades, guard my jewels, make an appt with the hair stylist! Order my new lipstick, bring all my makeup. Send the invitations, I’ll meet you at the Palace. Get tickets for the concert, the races, the awards banquet, the Olympics! No matter where a Leo is, they are the King or Queen of something! They are admired leaders, creative beyond words, delighted to love and be loved. They are enthusiastic, give encouragement just by being! They stand tall in Spirit.

Ruled by our fiery Sun, a Star, our strongest ‘planet,’ who would expect anything less of them?!

LEO 2019 Celestial Highlights!  

Astronomy Perseids 2019 August 11-13

The composite image above is by John Ashley at Glacier National Park in Montana, in 2016. It perfectly captures the feeling of standing outside as dawn is approaching, after a peak night of Perseid meteor-watching. As viewed from anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere, the Perseids’ radiant point is highest at dawn, and so the meteors rain down from overhead. View the full image here.

Get UP Early to See the Perseids!

The mornings leading up to August 13, 2019 should be decent for meteor-watching, providing you can find a way to work around the pesky moon. The moon is brighter in the sky on each of those mornings, and the dark window between moonset and dawn steadily shrinks as the peak morning – August 13 – approaches. We recommend watching across several mornings, before the peak, this year. Find moonset times for your location here.

Thank you always to Doug McClure at EarthSky!

Leo Romantic Sunrise Wedding Noosa Beach Australia

Leo sunrise glory, romantic wedding at Noosa Beach, Australia. ‘The sea was calm and beautiful, the breaking light was just awe-inspiring.’
Congratulations to the happy couple!

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

Nov 8 concludes the six aspects with Neptune, all happening while Jupiter is in its own sign Sagittarius! At that time it will be exactly a year ago, Nov 8, 2018, that Jupiter went into his own sign Sagittarius. These aspects with Neptune, the Dreamer, have opened our senses, making us aware of new dreams and beliefs. Times have changed!
Pisces
We are in an impressive sequence of unusual aspects that started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter then Saturn were with Neptune at 18 Pisces. The nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs! April 4, 2020 starts a three time Jupiter conjunct Pluto sequence. As Saturn conjunct Pluto prepped with demolition, Jupiter with Pluto will clean out the remaining nest then regroup and prosper. The Nov 12, 2020 Jupiter conjunct Pluto is at 22 Capricorn, exactly the same degree and sign as the Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto. Jupiter conjunct Pluto follows and is the closest aspect to the 2020 Presidential Elections Nov 3! Important things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

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

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

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

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

Leo will be rather happy with the Dec 2 entry of Jupiter into Earth sign Capricorn. Jupiter is a fire planet and both Leo and Jupiter like to play, sport & gamble! Leo likes a good taut Capricorn, is proud of his superlative accomplishments! With Jupiter’s entry into Capricorn there will be 3 outer planets in Capricorn until Saturn enters Aquarius March 31, 2020! Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn July 1, 2020, and again, there will be 3 in Capricorn until Saturn makes his final shift into Aquarius Dec 16, 2020. Saturn will be in his own, more conservative sign Capricorn for the presidential elections. Jupiter and Saturn are both high mountain lovers, so looks like it’s going to be fun for some! Jupiter will make the travel plans; Cap will build the lodge! Jupiter quickly sees potential, offers encouragement, gathers the backers. Capricorn is ace at putting the right pieces together with terrific timing. Successful champions! The job comes in early, and the results are impressive! See more about Jupiter in Capricorn!

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

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

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

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

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

April 4 and June 29 Jupiter conjuncts Pluto the first and second times. From the second week in March through July, most potently April 4 through June 29, Jupiter closely conjuncts Pluto the entire time! The opposite prediction polarity, compared to the paragraph above, is it can be mass tragedy, even evil personified. More powerful secrets made, concealment and lies to cover. Be ready to help, protect yourself and others until this period passes. Seriously start making alliances with capable and trusted family, friends and associates now. Keep your emergency kit and supplies up to date for on-the-ground environmental conditions likely in your area, have a plan in mind. The aspects will hold be potent at 21 to 26 Capricorn. If you have factors at or very close to those degrees you may be called into action. Challenges for Aries, Libra and Cancer, Gemini and Leo. More easy for Taurus and Virgo, Scorpio and Pisces.

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

Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune are all in their own signs up to Dec 2, 2019! See Jupiter in Sagittarius That’s a lot of pure strong energy. Jupiter and Neptune are in malleable signs, in astrological terms, mutable. They are flexible, adaptable. Jupiter goes into Capricorn Dec 2. Saturn in Capricorn stomps his foot and calls for responsibility and to abide by the rules and laws, honor each other, your parents, the boss, elders and ancestors! You have to show him how and why that change you request makes sense. Neptune in Pisces senses our weak spots, and with compassion, converts them to strengths. We become aware of our Soul’s purpose. Saturn is 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.

Two outer planets change sign during LEO’s coming year. Jupiter in Sagittarius enters Capricorn Dec 2. Saturn in Capricorn enters Aquarius Mar 21, 2020, retrogrades back into Capricorn for a review July 1. Jupiter’s sign is where the good fortune is! Be ready to shift certain investments, adjust projects to new, additional goals. Saturn, quite at home in his own sign, suddenly finds himself in a sign quite unlike himself. Yet, Aquarius carries on the good work for all the world! Capricorn guiding will make it all the more potent. While Capricorn loves the status and money, be guided by keeping your work in service to all. With earth changes, we will find ourselves working with many others in diverse environments under unusual conditions. Aquarius will expand your business, mission, if you let the change work for you. Blessed be.

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

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

Outer Planet Transits with LEO 2019 – July 2020!

Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter

Leo Life is full of new beginnings!

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

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

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

LEO may blush, marry or do business with Pluto in Cap. Leo may be hypnotized, honored, like to spend Pluto’s money, enjoy valuable gifts, or join corporate forces! Leo might be the front man to Pluto who wields the finances behind the scenes and Capricorn building whatever it takes to get the job done. Leo may lend his creative brilliance and name, while Pluto in Capricorn harnesses that power. Leo could feel curbed and lose his spirit, or be held in high esteem, in great appreciation for his contribution, handsomely paid. Choose wisely and give things an appropriate trial period. See a lawyer specific to that business, get it in writing – especially if you lack experience in that field. Get second and third opinions from people who won’t prosper from what you ask about. Check out pros and cons. Pluto may give some assessments that hurt LEO’s feelings and/or make him rethink some important premises of his life. Number 1 as therapists, Pluto’s highest intention is to heal what we hide from ourselves, clean out the old debris that blocks our Path. Medicine can taste pretty bad but be the perfect antidote.

NEPTUNE is in his own sign Pisces. He is a water planet in the last water sign, the last sign of the zodiac, seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors 15 to 20 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Neptune and Leo are both performers, actors. Leo understands personas and can step into one with uncanny accuracy. Neptune can immerse in the feelings, flow with the story line. Neptune brings Leo more of a vision than Leo has for himself, even when Leo’s own vision is grand. Neptune adds a subtlety that makes a difference, is more in alignment with true Spirit, even Leo’s own personal Spirit. Leo is so self aware he can feel that even more. Neptune uses rhythm, music that calls us; Leo uses music that moves not just Spirit, but our bodies. Neptune has made a good investment, someone to carry on the work! Neptune drifts in muted magical forms that inspire Leo to use the bright lights to help us see and magnify that alchemy! Leo may be confused at times, not ‘reading’ the script, but one thing leads to another and he spontaneously takes up the thread and creates his own! Fire signs rarely have trouble quickly ad libbing to meet the occasion!

URANUS, Aquarius’s planet, covers 2 to 10 Taurus! In Taurus it will anchor and build on change worthy ideas that need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network. They need to be cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, so they can effortlessly be carried on. A lot of earth changes we are witnessing are massive, coming suddenly, hot and heavy. The very land is changing, affecting food supplies, water sources and location choices about where to live. There is a lot of instability financially. We need to have backup funds, supplies, stay flexible. See more about the Aries to Taurus sign change.

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

Leo is intrigued beyond words! It’s kinda funny seeing Taurus, THE Earth sign, dealing with that crazy unpredictable Aquarian type. Both have their own particular type of savvy, but one is faster than the speed o Light, the other is so slow you may miss the event! So Leo takes in the genius of both. Leo is inspired by the lightning encounter with Uranus, yet wonders if he will withstand or measure up to the Uranian storm. It’s a humbling experience, and he’s not in charge like he’s used to! If he can’t keep up, ye Gods how embarrassing, Taurus will be catching up from behind, offering a steady shoulder and they will walk together. Now that’s different. Taurus is so patient, kindly, and Leo has so often only thought of himself. Puts a new dimension on things. If Leo was stuck somewhere, between the thunder maker and the earth mover, it won’t be for long. Astrologically speaking, Leo and Uranus’ sign Aquarius are opposite. Taurus sits between them. So though a Taurus/Leo square, it is also symbolically like a fixed sign T Square with Taurus as the gateway. Leo lying on the savanna can understand Taurus standing for hours in the fields, observing, digesting. Rather than being the Hunter with the pride, always needing to look good, Leo can take on more qualities of being in one’s own skin, taking the time it takes.

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

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

Chiron in Aries may come in good will; Leo is excited to collaborate with this newcomer! Chiron is feeling his oats. Due to his mythical unhealable injuries, he has often held the back seat, and it’s his turn now to stand up! Chiron is trying on some new healing ingredients and techniques. Leo is always looking to be a better person, have more strength, enjoy is prowess, so hopes they work well. Leo doesn’t always make business changes so fast, but pay attention to the new business skills offered. Chiron has more than one skill! Your income could improve. Chiron is quick in Aries, a great consultant, but he’s on his schedule, not ours, so get the info right away. He will soon be gone, but try things out for yourself. The best he offered does work. While he’s here, Chiron can do a successful startup so quickly you can hardly believe it! If he remains in leadership, it may be just challenging enough for him to opt to stay, opening branches, a franchise – always something new! Don’t be surprised if he opens further and different types of businesses as time goes on! You may miss him not being about. Be cautious of marriage offers. Leo loves romance, but if you are looking for long term, Chiron may not be the one while in Aries. Aries may promise, but not be able to do it.

SATURN builds from 13 Capricorn to 1 Aquarius!

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

Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! The experience you have depends on how Saturn is situated in your chart and how other current planetary positions apply to your chart or don’t. Check with your astrologer. Those of you with Saturn 13 – 29 Capricorn have your Saturn Returns now through Mar 21, 2020! There will be more traditional endeavors.

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

Saturn in his 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!

Leo wants to measure up to Capricorn expectations. They see the value and respect of being on time. Capricorn helps them face their demons, develop more realistic skill, think more long term, be aware of consequences of omissions or missing the boat. Caps help Leos, who think they can do anything, realize there really are 24 hours in a day and there are certain others who are better than they are at certain things. Leos don’t have to work so hard after all, LOL! Delegate is a lovely word. Capricorns may be surprised how much a Leo can adore them, be proud of them. They both have a tad of arrogance at times. Cap expects obedience; Leos are certain they should be waited on. Cap gets busted once in a while and Leo has a tantrum from time to time. Leo learns he has to be himself no matter what the authority wants. Sometimes authority is just wrong. Other times Leo needs to be doing good things with people who want the same things. Fire signs don’t adapt so easily. Yet Saturn’s Capricorn and Leo are a common combination! They are so proud of each other. Capricorn admires Leos verve and commanding presence, being the star of the show! Leos admire their Capricorn’s outstanding achievements, being the boss! They can get a lot done together.

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

Leo is delighted with the unfolding drama! He can be one of the many, or THE one of many, a leader. His teachings will carry the news and many will be onboard! His heart is in this goodness to come for all Beings. He is literally a Light for his team. Aquarius, having the great overview, will waste no time getting the word out, cleverly incorporating Leo’s work in the most right places. Leo may be hard pressed to keep up once started! There is so much more than he anticipated and he is being called to the highest levels. Friendships will take on a new tone, the frequency unfamiliar, but instinct knows it is the way to go. Aquarius is the Awakener, and Leo will be surprised to find he, the sign of Light, is awakening too! Aquarius is Evolution and Leo is on the surf, astounded by new visions and the speed at which they are happening! Take good care of yourself. If you are going to be a good spiritual soldier, act like you are preparing for a winning race! Relationships will surely shift as context changes around us. We will no longer accept lacks we tolerated for so long. We are out growing our old ways. We will more gladly wait for a more fulfilling combination at our new vantage point. Aquarius is wild genius, but Saturn is a born manager and will manage it well. Once you have experienced this level of consciousness there is no going back.

JUPITER moves from 14 Sagittarius to 27 Capricorn

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

Jupiter in Sag and Leo have a ball! That could be the biggest soirée you ever saw with a King and Queen, or a party in the woods with the High Priest and Priestess! You could have a concert with more sound and impressive lighting than ever before. That could be a splentacular fundraiser. Jupiter may carry you off on the trip of your lifetime, far and wide, up and under, to the Oracle, the fountain of youth! Leo learns how to make life bigger, and that’s fine with him! Jupiter invites Leo to think about the meaning of life rather than dwell in himself as much. The perspective shifts. He reminds Leo how important Leo’s part is in the big score of Life’s movie. Even when to his favor, Leo is sensitive to what could seem like criticism, so when Jupiter, not famous for discretion, may bluntly dump the ideas at Leo’s doorstep for Leo to stumble and rumble over, Leo may smoke a bit. Ultimately though, Leo is no quitter, and is a smart cookie, wants to be best. There may be a bit of harrumphs, snorting and carrying on, but Leo will think on it, take it in, and do what he can do! Jupiter in Sagittarius is a rambler and likely to move on. He may take Leo with him, or Leo, a fixed sign, may remain in his own kingdom waiting for the next visitor.

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

Jupiter in Capricorn can exaggerate the rules, which Leo may find entertaining until they apply to him! Leo is used to being King and Queen. Jupiter can be self righteous, but that is mere foolery to Leo. Leo rules! I don’t care how big your cloak is! However, Leo doesn’t get away with all. The law is the law, and Jupiter is often the Judge. Woops. If they are all on the same side it could be good. If not, Leo may get his wings clipped, be put in his place. If the Judge is good looking, and smart and funny, is known for his fair perspective, Leo may not mind at all, and to everyone’s surprise, it could be the start of a fine relationship! Jupiter in Capricorn can be doggone successful in business, be a consummate professional and show Leo how to rise up in the world at large! So what if you are the King/Queen! Get up and get a bigger territory. If you do it right, your constituents will be well pleased too! The business could be major events – promotions, universities, competitions, non profits for betterment, involve seniors and health and well being. Leos may be quite proud of their association and hold the Light quite steady! Congratulations!

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

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

Happy Birthdays, LEOS! Blessed be on your glorious Journey!


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

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 or traveling in a humongous luxury motor home!

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

Sep 23 Equinox Note! How did this happen?! All of a sudden we are really close to the Transit of Mercury retrograde eclipse and its sister aspect Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! These are both important events, transmissions from our own Star, the Sun, and our entire Galaxy of stars!

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 Center 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 Center 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 Center is a super massive black hole [4 light years wide], a galactic gravitational Center, 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.

(The GC is right where Jupiter, the planet that looks like an open orange 4 is.)

2019 Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center 27 Sagittarius 07 Astrology Chart!

The Jupiter/GC event is during Mercury in Scorpio Retrograde STATION! It ‘turns’ forward the NEXT DAY, Nov 20 at 11:12 AM Pacific! Retrograde Stations are an 8 day period ‘standing’ still, attuned, fully absorbing. It focuses, lets no motion distract it. There is a potent stillness, especially in ‘fixed’ sign Scorpio. Scorpio is perhaps the most deeply rooted and still of all the zodiac signs. They can be so still as to be not only invisible, but not be ‘felt’ when in that condition! They are 100% receptive. They don’t miss a thing and have tremendous capacity. Scorpio is a keen deep seeker, so every particle will be noticed and plumbed, anchored in their being. 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!

Trines can be like greased lightning! There won’t be any trouble with these transmissions! See all those blue lines?! There is a Grand Water Trine –  grand because a complete triangle is formed! We also have a super fire trine! Mercury in Scorpio is in the intuitive Grand Water Trine with Neptune in its own sign Pisces, the psychic of the Soul, the Sensitive, Dreamer. Mercury may try to analyze, can’t help it, but Neptune will keep the priority on the highest spiritual matters. They are accompanied by the Moon’s North Node seeking the best of the future in Moon’s own sign Cancer.

And who is in the fabulous Fire Trine?! JUPITER, a fire planet, the very planet of the Galactic Center! 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! 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, inspiration, 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. The Venus/Jupiter Moon/Part of Fortune fire trine will likely save the day!

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.

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 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.

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 Nov 17, 18, 19, 20 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.

2019 Scorpio Full Beaver Moon As Above So Below Transit of Mercury

Around 7 AM Pacific the 19th, with firm stance, be a channel for these profound energies! Without judgement I ask you to engage, receive, anchor these energies in their purity. Blessed be.

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 2019 Celestial Highlights!  

Aries 2019 Timeline!

March

20  Happy Aries & Spring Equinox! Full SuperMoon!
28  Mercury Direct!!

April

5    New Moon
19  AstroLogica Blue Moon, Full Pink Moon
20  Happy Taurus!

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!
