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!

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.

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….

Six months 4 degree sequence! Strongly feminine with fiery accents! Fixed Star Fomalhaut!

2019 Scorpio New Moon Mike Taylor Branch Pond, Maine

2019 Oct, Nov, Dec and 2020 Jan, Feb, Mar New Moons are all at 4 degrees, a SIX months sequence! The signs are Libra, Scorpio, Sag, Cap, AQ and Pisces. 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. Plan out those 6 months with a goal in mind. Be prepared, do things favorable to each Moon Sign! Check out my write-ups, and those particular Moon write-ups online to get perspective. 

The New Moon is a darker time, sometimes to be consulted in solitude, other times to be shared sweetly. It is a time of Magical revelations, merging with unseeable beings, on clear nights the Stars show us their secrets. It can be a divine balance with bright and busy social daytime, maybe the most restful of all the nights, the deepest slumbers.

Scorpio brings us into cold nights, maybe indoor Circle gatherings, sharing a warm fire, pumpkin pie and cider. This New Moon in particular prepares us for Halloween and Day of the Dead. Samhain is a sacred time of considering our mortality and celebrating those we have loved that are no longer with us in body. It is a special time of gratitude. In the US, Halloween is wild and fun, alter-ego costumes right and left! Pagan Samhain is often private and serious. In Mexico Day of the Dead, Día de los Muertos, is publicly brilliantly celebrated with candles and giant Marigolds, entire cemeteries ablaze with light and color, celebrants hanging out there all night long!  

This Moon is sweet, quite feminine! Mama Moon and Father Sun are together deeply entwined; dear Venus and Mercury are together, all in feminine water sign Scorpio! Moon and Sun are sharing, are in fusion, become One. Scorpio is deep and dark, yet carries the Kundalini internal and eternal flame at all times. They flourish in the underworlds of caves, tunnels, channels of underwater tides. They are not afraid of death, or living, healing quickly and miraculously. Psychological depths intrigue them. What does it all mean and how does it work? The morgue is an intriguing place.

The New Moon has just passed an oblique aspect with Chiron who is with Lilith in rebellious Aries! That pair is wild and fierce, fearless leaders full of new ideas! They will quickly talk with anyone who will listen. They shoot straight from the hip and want healing now, not just talking about it! They are social first responders, instantly adapting to the circumstances at hand. If the meeting is not on fertile ground, they move right on! Moon and Sun got some hot quick ideas and marvel that they didn’t get burned in the process! WOW! The local frequency was just raised!

So now, Moon and Sun are not even surprised by being exactly opposite Uranus, the planet of awakening, evolution, change, revolution, the unexpected. Uranus is in the firmly patient persistent sign Taurus. They are noted for being calm, yet there can still be surprises. Scorpio may feel quite safe to extend a handshake and ask questions. Uranus is brilliant, so Scorpio may find themselves impressed by the range of thoughtfulness and commonsense ideas proposed. It is a time of new beginnings, so why not now?! Sustainability comes up, environmental matters and patterns – food production, clean water, extinctions. Humanitarian matters like human rights are on the table, each coming up with possibilities, potential funding, how to get people involved at every level, social media magnets and magnates!

Mercury has just spent time with Venus. Venus puts the beauty in Scorpio, a profound attractiveness, charisma that seduces, enchants, blesses. Mercury has been gifted with insights about true love, speaking kindly, sharing, giving gratitude. Of course, there are always times when Venus is greedy, selfish and obsessed with the reputation of her loved one. Mercury may have to do some very pointed fast talking to open her mind to alternative possibilities. It kinda takes one to know one, so he has a better chance than most would. Scorpio is a strong sign, so Venus, who has gotten away with things for a long time, may have behavioral habits and thinks she’s right because she is pretty. Both ways may be needed, the gentle feminine approach, or the in-your-face-omg, approach. There may be little time. 

Jupiter is rather on his own in Sagittarius, free to ramble. He sits loosely in a midpoint that has passed, between Venus and Pluto. Venus just passed by. Jupiter has encouraged her to think bigger, adjust her wants to a bigger range. She has been inspired to learn some more about her next steps. Jupiter assured her she will have success because, really, she is worth more than she realizes. She has worked alone a lot, but now it’s time to partner up. Jupiter has passed Pluto in Capricorn. Jupiter has a broad range of perspective that takes Pluto’s powerful knowledge to a more modern potential! Pluto is no fool! He is glad to step things up.

Mars is a bit dismayed, tired, with having been blocked, delayed, the additional requirements Saturn in Capricorn has put in his way. If Mars wasn’t in Libra adjusting and balancing, finessing, an unusual skill for Mars, the whole shebang may have ended right there! But sometimes Saturn, though himself the obstacle, uses his wisdom. He was once there too. He encourages impatient Mars, offers helpful suggestions. Saturn knows when it’s a good project, just needs a little tweaking or some different timing. Mars has another outlet that is a side shot! He’s inconjunct Neptune. Neptune is in his own sign Pisces and if Mars will sit for a moment old magical Neptune will send some intuitive insights. They could be minor differences that change everything, or frame the project from a whole nother point of view and it suddenly all makes sense! 

This all makes even more sense when we see Saturn is about to sextile Neptune Nov 8! Saturn and Neptune are working right along, so Mars has just stepped in at the best time! In Libra Mars wants beauty, harmony, good connections with people in all walks of life. Saturn wants to build lasting dreams with Pisces who wants the best for all beings! Mars wants people to feel safe and comfortable, have energy to live a potent life! Saturn and Neptune want that too! So Mars’ struggle only inspires them all! They want the best for him. They will come through like shining stars! 

Saturn in Capricorn has recently turned Direct, forward and is closing the gap to its conjunction with Pluto Jan 12, 2020 – only 5 degrees to go! Saturn traveling with Pluto in Capricorn has been and continues to carry some serious weight this year. There are karmic conditions that need righting, forgiving. Old fears need to be released, power used correctly. Dharma, the work of the Soul, 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. The final November 8 Saturn sextile Neptune will help make Neptune’s dreams come true. Trust your intuition, remember the long range needs of our Mother Earth – all her peoples, plants and creatures. Collaborate. Keep your dreams in mind.

Fixed Star Fomalhaut! The four 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 Archangel Gabriel, the human. Fomalhaut is in constellation Piscis Austrinus (not Pisces) at the foot of Aquarius, at 3 Pisces 52. It is in service to Humanity. And in this case, is most favorably in trine with our New Moon! 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.’ With Scorpio it creates a longing for clean choices, dreams to come true.

In a bigger sense, Scorpio is hosting the biggest aspect of this current time! Jupiter has remained closely in square with Neptune since Dec 28, 2018 and just made the third and last square during Virgo on Sep 21. The first square was the first aspect of 2019 on Jan 13! In companion aspects, retrograde, Jupiter squared and Saturn sextiled Neptune June 16 and 18. Jupiter made this last square well before Saturn makes its last sextile Nov 8. Jupiter has brought some colossal misunderstandings and has questioned and revealed the truth of some of our beliefs and plans. Saturn makes the final decisions in view of possible consequences. For almost a year there have been reconsiderations and trials. Their 11 month cycle finishes within days of the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Eclipse and sister aspect Nov 19 Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center, an uncommon pairing.  See more about Jupiter Square Neptune!   Saturn sextile Neptune!   

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 


More about the Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently 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 eleven months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects finish Nov 8, 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 16 degrees, tuned to the Ecliptic and the June events, will be connected with Transit of Mercury! Pluto is now at 20 Capricorn close to the 22/23 degree events

Pluto will be at 23° when the 4 planet Capricorn 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, grow. We honor your place, for being here this way for us.

Thank you, Scorpios, for holding us strong during these two super events, the Transit of Mercury and Jupiter at the Galactic Center during your Scorpio Mercury Retrograde!

Taurus – Scorpio Full Beaver Moon! 

November Tuesday the 12th at 5:34 AM Pacific, 19 Taurus/Scorpio 52

Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse! SIX Planet Earth and Water, Sextiles and Trines Bow Pattern! Fixed Star Castor.

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

With firm stance, be a channel for this Full Moon and the Transit of Mercury Eclipse! The Etheric Energy of yesterday’s Transit of Mercury is still very present. Moon in Taurus is holding the thread. This is doable for many of us per the exact time of day because the Full Moon is early morning, 5:34 AM Pacific. For some that will be Moonset! What a greeting for the day!

This Full Moon is important because it is the day after the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse! Information received yesterday is now being grounded and anchored in Taurus and given full perusal in Scorpio.

2019 Transit of Mercury Astrology Chart!It will then be used now through when Mercury’s sister aspect happens Nov 19, Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! The event is already strong with Jupiter only one degree away! It happens every 12 years, but not at the same time as the Transit of Mercury like this one!!!

The Jupiter/GC event is during Mercury in Scorpio Retrograde STATION! Mercury ‘turns’ forward the NEXT DAY, Nov 20 at 11:12 AM Pacific! Mercury 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 to 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!


At 19 Taurus/Scorpio 52, this Full Moon is part of the amazing sequence of world events we have been having, particularly the late 18 degree events. Not only is it the day after the Transit of Mercury, but it is less than a degree from where it happened! Those of you who can read charts can see how close they are by comparing these two charts.   

Mercury is known as the Messenger of God. He is always within 28 degrees of Sun. He carries the word of ‘God’, Sun, Sol, Soul, the word of the Light of Life. It is a profound association, often not realized that communication is a divine privilege. We think of chit chat, gossip, people who talk nonstop, not realizing that listening is the other half of communication, or maybe they are too scared to listen. Think first. Communicate with yourself. Uplevel your message, know why you are speaking and why to that person. Stay with your priority, what you hope to accomplish. Time may be short and our needs vital.

Scorpio 2019 Full Beaver Moon Astrology Chart!SIX Planet Earth and Water, Sextiles and Trines Bow Pattern! See the red lines across the chart from 1 to 7 linked by all those green lines?! Mercury, Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Taurus are successfully strongly tied with Saturn and Pluto and Neptune. Now Saturn and Pluto are only 5 degrees apart waiting to make their Jan 12 conjunction
  • Mercury retrograde will make his sextile with Father Time, Saturn, in just over 24 hours at 6:35 AM Pacific on the 13th. They are documenting this historic event. Mercury communicates Saturn’s wanting integrity of staying true to the goal, building a better world.
  • Sun sextiles Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Saturn’s sign Capricorn, 9:56 AM Pacific on the 13th. There should be some results by then. Looking Life straight in the eye will do best. Funding may be given, fortunes may be made, particularly in businesses involving aging, conservation of fuels, plumbing, medical research/cures, renovations, clean up of pollution, micro features.
  • Moon has just trined Saturn, of her opposite sign, and is in imminent trine with Pluto. She resonates with patterns and divine order. Moon in Taurus has environmental concerns, wants a clean organic life – soil, water and air. She asks expert Pluto what would do that job well with the least harm and the best healing to Nature. Since we are right after the Transit of Mercury there may be some amazing information that simply ‘appears’ in our minds. Our frame of mind may shift. New ideas forming will suddenly seem like possibilities to put in progress! 
  • Moon and Sun have just gone by a sextile and trine with Neptune in Pisces, the Master of the Sea in his own sign! All three of them are psychic, Neptune the dreamer, visionary. Neptune reveals flaws, fears, addictions that cover conditions we can’t cope with at a given time. With the help of Father Sun in detox Scorpio and Mother Moon in Taurus of endless patience and persistence, changing our patterns of consumption, we may be able to stay strong and steady. Neptune helps us with getting clarity about our gifts. Neptune makes music, renders art to touch your Soul, shows us the Angels. Human help and spiritual help together often make the difference. Our beliefs shift; we come to understand we are not alone. A ‘mission’ may come to light, a mission that is bigger than our personal troubles and we have reason to live and live well. Saltwater is a definite cure.  

Venus is not in that Bow Pattern. She is in Sagittarius, square Neptune. She may be a little pushy for his taste, questioning his beliefs in the guise of looking for the Truth. He may accommodate her for a while, but come to be tired and lapse into an altered state, LOL, kinda rains on her parade! She is sad not be able to query him further and takes off to further uncharted territory. He may remain in thoughtful awareness, stirred by her inquiry. She had a quaint little way about her, those flowers in her hair, that adorable little smile, a lilt that captured his attention. 

As if in sympathy with all those sextiles, Mars is sextile Jupiter! Scorpio, Capricorn and Neptune aren’t always so cheerful even when in positive aspects like sextiles and trines. They simply have their own natures. Scorpio was built to be suspicious, good detectives. Capricorn is skeptical and untrusting until you prove yourself. Pisces can imagine the worst – great for writing suspense stories, making movies! Mars has no such troubles! He is ahead of the game, leading the fray, enjoying the battle! Why worry, life is gonna happen anyway?! In Libra he knows he can dance right through. He’s quick and has some agile allies! Jupiter knows the escape route, can ‘see’ ahead and it’s fun! It’s a race, so place your bets! Mars in Libra loves making new connections, especially in the world of beauty. At your side, he will fight for your rights. Jupiter is the professor and makes sure you have the full perspective. He’s the planner and lives for new territory! Mars may not sit still long, but he’s a quick learner on his feet! Nothing like a Full Moon to spread your wings! Next!

As with the Oct 13 Aries/Libra Full Moon, the Fixed Star Castor plays a part. Moon and Sun are favorably sextile/trine Castor at 20 Cancer 14 – that’s only 23″ apart! 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 (as these are) 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!’

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.

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.

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.

Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center Astrology Chart!
(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.

Mercury Retrograde Pisces 2019 Big Sur Coast Bixby Bridge

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

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

About Retrogrades!  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pisces Mercury with Uranus newly in Taurus

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

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

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

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

This Mercury Retrograde is important for hosting these 51 & 84 year sign changes of Chiron and Uranus. Here is the entire Event Timetable:

Pisces generally gets along well with other water signs Cancer and Scorpio, and earth signs Taurus and Capricorn. It’s challenged by the other mutable cross signs Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius, and fire signs Aries and Leo. Be wise. Check carefully with your astrologer about your personal timing!

At this time of Chiron and Uranus sign changes, Mercury is stirring the Pisces brew! Awareness keeps shifting and adjusting. Who knows what will come of it?! It’s a time of divine discovery!

Keep the magic happening!
