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

Most significant Mercury Retrograde Leo-Virgo 2017!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The FIVE part Lunar Sequence!

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

Here’s the Mercury and Lunar Timing!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Happy Birthdays, Geminis!

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

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

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

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

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

Mimic, mime, is a form of twinism.

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

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

Gemini 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you to Bruce McClure and EarthSky.org!

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

Gemini 2017 TimeLine!

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

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

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

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

Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Gemini 2017 –  June 2018!

Samsung Galaxy X will have a foldable technology as edge technology is finished now. It will be the most exciting smartphone for 2017.

Samsung Galaxy X will have foldable technology – The latest rumors suggest we might see a Galaxy X prototype this year, but may not see the final phone until 2019.

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

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

Neptune is in its own sign, moves from 11 to 16 Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. Neptune blurs and blends while Gemini makes a clean sharp focus, brightens the colors! They both use images, Neptune adds the music. What Gemini might miss with his visual ability and fast thinking, Neptune will relax to a deeper keen listening, an empathic talent, that finds subsurface or more remote knowledge. Gemini might feel out to sea, but it’s only another facet of mind to experiment with.

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 0 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the last year of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a automatic. In Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries is the first to DO it! Gemini is delighted by this impetuous wild card player! They have met their match and then some! No boredom with this combination! Fire and electricity make the world go around, and Gemini is collecting mega data to feed the Team! The Team helps them stand back to see the great panorama of humanity before them, to see collective shifts right before their eyes! Gemini’s work has taken on so much more meaning! Extraordinary friendships will kindle amazing new interests.

When Uranus gets into Taurus it’s going to be quite different for you Geminis. There will be a slowing, a stabilizing. Ideas will be more solid, strengthened. Weak spots will be more finely calibrated, balanced, recharged. Your life may seem less complicated and maybe that brings you relaxation, time to observe what has become and needs steady tending. Since you were part creator, you won’t mind. It’s a time to treasure what you have done. Tai Chi might become part of your life, or you find a superb acupuncturist! Mind and fingers and touch. A loyal unity. Uranus will be in Taurus through April 2026, activating your chart in various ways, bit by bit, as it goes through the degrees.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when you get work that suits you better or you start your own business! Gemini businesses may be any kinds of communications, consulting – think tanks, working with your hands, medical specialties involving the lungs/airways/nose – shoulders, looking younger! Saturn will want adjustments – more precision, science based techniques, attention to critical timing, sometimes working with elders, laws. Fathers and bosses likely will make more demands, you feel your age. Saturn offers tips for more efficiency, production increases! Saturn will be in Capricorn until Dec 2020.

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

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

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Gemini another air sign, loves greeting all the people, is excited about all kinds of art, wants to make a portfolio! Poetry, news blogs, marketing advertising are encouraged by Jupiter who wants to get the word out as far as possible, recruit new links, have many stations! Gemini, a diversity specialist, is quite willing to be a go between between go betweens! Jupiter sees a greater picture, and Libra is quite worldly compared to Gemini of siblings and neighbors, so the new dimension is to see the brothers and sisters of the world! As twins, they are psychic, quick to pick up on how we are more alike than different! There will be lots of questions with new answers!

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

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

Gemini Spreads the Light through the Word!

Gemini Planets Hawaiian Tapestry Jay Wilson

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

New SuperMoon! Mars TSquare! Saturn at GALACTIC CENTER!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mars Mutables TSquare with Chiron and Saturn

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Gemini Strawberry Full Moon NYC Boni de Oliveira

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

May your journeys be entirely inspiring!

Venus Mercury Retrograde Zion Angel's Landing Walters Wiggles

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

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

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

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

Venus Retrograde

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

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

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

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

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

Mercury Double Retrograde!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mercury Retrograde 2016 Sagittarius Capricorn Astrology Switzerland Switchbacks Furza

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jupiter in Libra Travel Wedding Gown Plane Blue
Traveling with your Wedding Dress?! ~ Call the airline ahead of time….

August 24 Note: ONLY 16 days of Virgo left. Organize, Tone up your skills, get things done, clean up, heal your mind and body, be ready to relate! Jupiter goes through the signs every 12 years, so this is it for Virgo, Libra to begin shortly!

This Sign change, and the last Saturn square Neptune Sep 10, occur between two VIRGO eclipses! Sep 1 Solar ECLIPSE, New Moon is first, then the Sep 16 Lunar ECLIPSE, Full Harvest Moon! All this is during the Virgo Mercury Retrograde Aug 30 to Sep 21! The Jupiter Sign change is followed by the Sep 22 Sun’s sign change into Libra, Fall Equinox! The Sun will conjunct Jupiter, then at 2 Libra 49, a very lucky combination! And Mars will be conjunct the Galactic Center, transmitting from 26 Sagittarius!

Jupiter in Virgo‘s exceptional craftsmanship has attracted the notice of Libra’s who appreciate the finest art! In Libra, a worthy long term partnership may be formed. Quality is a gift in itself, and may assure the intrinsic value of the gift offered. Jupiter may have worked long and traveled far to arrive at this special time and meet YOU!

Libra will bring well groomed poodles and spending some of that money! Libra enjoys sociality and elegance, from tux at the ballet to exquisite gowns at the symphony. The fine art gallery or the local art show are on their agenda. Jupiter loves a good story, so invite them to play the part to maximize the benefits! This combination makes for fundraising like you had only dreamed of!

Jupiter is playful, so expect some jokes and joviality, maybe a few bets, along the sidelines. Maybe that is just the icebreaker needed, a little friendly competition to start the juices flowing. There will likely be a faux pas once in awhile, but usually they are forgiven. We are all human. They meant well, and surprisingly things work out great!

Libra is so courteous and tactful. Jupiter is no fool, so can see the value in establishing well balanced relationships with respect and kindly words. With Jupiter’s confidence and friendliness with people from many lands, and Libra’s cross cultural camaraderie at the table, they are a hit and the sale is made, the contract negotiated fairly, a long term alliance celebrated!

Jupiter has many interests, some of them foreign. In Libra, expect to see the world. Jupiter loves to teach; Libra can gather the Souls, anthropology in action. Jupiter can publish; Libra finesses the script perfectly. Jupiter is the Judge; Libra loves the Law and makes great lawyers. Jupiter has perspective, integrity and super Faith and helps Libra hold the line and stick with the long term meaningful decision. Libra helps Jupiter see both sides before leaping to assumptions! They are a good team.

Libra is good at team sports and peaceful competition. Baseball, relays, synchronized. Dance, ballet, Tai chi, balance. Jupiter enjoys games, being robust, racing, skiing, skating, horseback riding. Make it all an art. Show that big doggie, fine horse! Try some figure skating! Do good things for your figure! Eat less, eat well.

Jupiter is a daytime planet and Libra a daytime but Sunset sign. They love a starlit night with candles and a lovely long view of the Milky Way to keep Jupiter’s happiness. Wish upon a star. If they do things they both love together, a relationship can be formed. Otherwise, this may be a ‘it was fun to have met you’ affair. But you will change. It was memorable and still special. You Libras got more courage and Jupiterians more grace.

Venus is Libra’s planet, so many couples will be in the marrying mood! Businesses associated with marriage and travel will thrive! Yet, Jupiter, the wanderer, isn’t always an easy catch. If not the marrying type, or not ready, they vanish or just don’t show up. If things go well for your relationship, Jupiter IS THE luckiest planet of all! Jupiter in Libra marriages may be truly and exponentially blessed! You two together will be more successful in Love and Business than you ever were separately on your own. If you are already married, get a great special date and time from your astrologer to renew your vows and make it even better! Be sure to check with your astrologer for

  • Basic lasting real compatibility – no maybes or ‘potentially.’
  • Chose a beautiful astrological wedding date and time on that day for happy stability, love and prosperity!
  • Check both your astrolocalities for the most lovely and successful place for your marriage, honeymoon, and where to settle and have your children.

DANCE in Beauty forever and ever.

Jupiter into LIBRA 2016 Astrology Chart

Sep 9, as Jupiter makes the sign change into LIBRA, Jupiter stands alone, in no close degrees to any  other chart factors. It is free to act, or unconnected, yet Libra is a sign of relationships.

In time it stands with the last exact Saturn square Neptune Sep 10, the day after the sign change! That aspect has brought sadness, breakdowns, endings, losses. The square has been strong and close to 10 Sagittarius from April 13 to Oct 31. Paris, Orlando, many floods. At the same time, it has shown us the great needs, many have forgiveness, great kindnesses have been shown, and determination to rebuild and change shows amazing resilience though having suffered greatly.

Mercury is RETROGRADE at 24 Virgo, headed back to 14 Virgo 49. We must rethink many things to find better ways. In Virgo it is new health practices in our lives, business systems, financial management, cleaning up our homes and environment, giving our pets better care. It’s paying attention to when people need our help yet not depleting ourselves in the process. Virgo is a sensible mutable Earth sign, born to make these adjustments with the least fuss. Get your rest, hug your family and carry on.

Mercury is retrograding to opposition Chiron and inconjunct Uranus. This is important because Mercury is keeping the energy of their recent aspects in our mind and the reverse aspects of their previous sets start in December and carry through 2017! See More!

Sun in Virgo is in square with Moon and Mars in Sagittarius. Could be some impatience in the wind, grumpy rumblings. Work versus running away, responsibility versus independence now! Again, mutable signs, so look for the good, make the adjustments, and keep moving. You can clean up messes and fine tune later! Get what you can done, take some time outs for fun!

Venus, Libra’s planet has sextiled Saturn, happily made the job more productive, restored some broken relationships, let others go on their way in their own style. Perhaps an almost marriage. Venus has inconjuncted Neptune, wondering why the wandering, yet has caught glimpses of unmendable broken hearts, dreams that could come true, Spirit that leads us. Libra, an air sign, is the ever so logical lawyer, but sometimes the balance of heart and matter leads to a creative solution that pleases the kindred Soul of all. Venus wants what she wants, but you can’t own people. Her ultimate grace and kindness wins the day.

She will stand trial square Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto rules Scorpio the sign after Libra. Libra prepares the relationships for the deeper dealings of Scorpio, intimacy, financially, death and rebirth, detoxing and healing. Serious matters. Venus can be frivolous with fru frus, cosmetics, flowers, clothes & jewelry. She loves the elite musics and entertainment, ballet, plays. Capricorn brings her up short and says we need to pay the rent and think of possible needs for savings for a rainy day, and fix the roof, you know. Sigh. Ok, so a bit of both? She will pale and die if there are no pretties at all. And Cap can get too gruffy and stuffy for his own good. Grab him and take him out to play! Just might like it after all! :)

Don’t expect to make an easy love match with this square. It will either take time, there are family, financial or career or educational setbacks, a broken engagement, age is an issue. Sometimes it is wiser to let go and find happiness elsewhere another time. It may seem bleak at this time, but is worth the wait. Remember, these aspects will be in different formations with each of your different charts. Check with a couple astrologers to see and confirm your specific personal timing.

Moon and Mars are trine Uranus, so there are some unexpected, yet not surprising either, opportunities soon ahead. Time to try out new adventures! Get outdoors, try a new sport, a new gym! New friends, a different new group is likely to invite you!

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017! When the Sun goes into Libra this year, it will conjunct Jupiter at 2 Libra 49! That is a lucky combination, so Libras will get off to a great start and Fall Equinox will be glorious!

Happy Jupiter in Libra to you all! Happy travels, great learning, bountiful relationships!

Mercury Retrograde winding road across the Golden land

9.22.16 Sun into Libra note: These are the matters that will be finishing through Oct 6 with Mercury now Direct/forward in Virgo.

Virgo is so tawny and earthy, the sign after Golden Leo. S curves, like in retrogrades, can have such grace and contour perfectly celestially in our lives, each turn specifically meaningful, intertwined so naturally….

Both Eclipses, Sep 1 and 16, Jupiter’s Sep 9 sign change into Libra, and the last Saturn square Neptune Sep 10 are all during Mercury Rx! There will be a lot of rethinking going on of many matters. Mercury will keep these events in our mind as well as the previous Jupiter-Chiron-Uranus sets, and the three Mercury trines with Pluto!

The prep, perusal and anticipation phase started Aug 10. Mercury retrogrades Aug 30 at 29 Virgo 4. 29 is the last degree of a sign, considered a critical degree as it holds the last moments before the threshold into the next sign. It is in maturity, happy, so done, excited and a little scared sometimes too! In this case we can get a look but don’t get to step onto Libra ground, yet. Mercury returns to mid Virgo, 14 Virgo 49, reorganizing. Kinks are getting straightened out. Unfinished business is tended. More healing happens. We get cleaner and lighter as no longer needed goods are given away or sold, transformed to current purpose.

At each turn point, Aug 30 and when it turns forward Sep 21, focus is held for about an 8 day period. Projects are refined, ideas are absorbed and retained. Not perhaps in their entirety, but the crucial bits are held. The sand of the hour glass drizzles silently, into a slightly new mix. Time, though passing, stands still. It can seem perverse or magical, maybe a tad of both, depending on your mindset. Let yourself be the observer, be one with it, be patient and grateful. There is an essence, that is truly pure, that is being revealed.


Mercury three times at Jupiter opposition Chiron, inconjunct Uranus points of Aug 12, 13
  • Mercury keeps us thinking of Jupiter in Virgo’s course corrections, its inconjunct Uranus, and additional offerings of healing expertise to Chiron, increasing Chiron’s repertoire. Mercury will sniff about, question, drop hints, dialogue its way along and around, let information flow and filter into the crevices of opportunity it finds. The first scan, is Aug 19, less than a week fresh from Jupiter’s two aspects, and this only one day after the Full Grain Moon spanning Leo/Aquarius! The ideas Jupiter stirred are expanded, having more reach now than thought possible. Stretch for it!
  • Mercury transits are about a 4 day affair, 3 before, 1 after, unless it is in station, holding the point longer, or unless you are more, more sensitive. Then it’s the time it is for you.
  • The second contact, is September 9, the very day Jupiter changes signs, enters Libra for the first time since 12 years ago! The importance of Jupiter’s aspects, Jupiter then in Virgo, sharing across the table with co-healer teacher, spirit traveler Chiron, is fully in mind as Jupiter’s energy is carried over the threshold from super service Virgo to sharing and pairing Libra! How we serve each other, our dearest loved ones, how we make each other’s day better makes the difference between heartbreak and that 40th anniversary! Business partnerships flourish as we each bring our marvelous talents to the table. Jupiter’s inconjunct Uranus, consideration of friendships and how we can all work together in service to our world, the greater community, brings change that awakens some, gives many a ‘home,’ sets us free together. Nice and gentile Libra is not to be underestimated! They are diplomats, negotiators and peacemakers, but also rights fighters par excellence! Law is their business. Be careful about your business, have a good staff and team available. A good lawyer is a true asset.
  • October 3 is Mercury’s last connection. The Moon will be in Scorpio that day conjuncting Venus. Take some sweet time with someone you love. Protect your privacy and be sure your security measures are in place.

*Another threesome this Rx is Mercury trine Pluto, even more powerful because Mercury stations with Pluto when it turns direct! Mercury trined Pluto Aug 10, the very beginning day of its three part cycle – direct, retrograde, direct.  When Mercury turns directions it is ‘still’ for an 8 day period, 4 days before, 4 days after. That is a time of great focus, concentration, being instilled with the principles of that time. Mercury trines Pluto the second time Sep 20, turns direct/forward the 21st, Sun goes into Libra the 22nd, and trines Pluto the third time Sep 23, all right in that 8 day station from Sep 18 to 25! Mercury queries Pluto who doesn’t give up his secrets easily. Mercury is generally more inquisitive than wanting to use things against you, but still, there needs to be some degree of trust and possibly confidentiality before certain things are shared. The trine is often more successful. So it you want to learn a deeper way of seeing and knowing, get closer, give it a try. Pluto cleans things up and some of those answers given may not immediately make you happy, but will certainly change your life. Sexuality, intimacy, money, cleansing, death, healing & rebirth are Pluto fortes. See it in the Sep 16 Eclipse!

Virgo is one of Mercury’s own signs, the other is Gemini. Gemini glories in a brilliant array of  ideas! Virgo wants to put them to work. Both are more of mind, earthy Virgo is more of matter. It’s not just ideas, but things, the results that ideas make. Virgo crafts them into a working system. It hones the edges. It puzzles them about until there is a wonderful fit! Virgos make earth crafts especially ones of wood, like cabinetry, wooden ship building, custom homes, wood carvings. Their amazing attention to detail wins awards. They want quality and durability, plus sustainability. Get yourself ready to be flexible. Old routines will be challenged.

Virgo performs countless services, from the saving lives nurse, to washing dishes housekeeper, the accountant who saves your bacon! Some of them franchise, others would never dream of delegating, they personally ARE the business. Those remarkable beings will change your diet, and you will let them! They study every facet and know all the details. Impressive. So when Mercury is retrograde they may go a bit crazy as things are thrown up in the air topsy turvy. Don’t worry. Give them appropriate time for the Rx to settle and they will have a better way of production than ever! If you are a service provider, you may be astonished at your clients’ new requests. Roll with it best you can and have them sign and date any changes of the original agreement.

Mercury rules paperwork, and Lord knows Virgo does plenty of that! Mercury Rx is a classic time to put off signing papers. Wait if possible. Get receipts for returns, warranties. This may be time to look and test equipment for your business, but, again, wait, especially if it means an entire system overhaul or an expensive item. Since Virgo rules health care, wait to get elective surgery for yourself or pets. Career shifts during the Rx likely won’t turn out as expected, and it’s better to wait to hire if possible. Be ready to spend plenty if you go for a renovation or restoration during Rx. If this Rx doesn’t activate your chart or you have super good aspects during the Rx you can chance it, but as my tax Daddy told me, never chance more than you can pay for!

Virgos are keen mentors, love doing on the job training, are fine tutors. They write the books and manuals! Going to or sending your kids to a specialty or technical school of a Virgo kind is ace! You, they, will come away with profound life skills as well as a fine talent that will be admired and appreciated by many, make you a contributing community member. But don’t be surprised if you change your focus during Rx!

Mercury finishes its three part cycle October 6. As it goes forward from Sep 21, put on the finishing touches. Make final corrections. Go over from front to back, beginning to end, with a fine tooth comb. One of the skills of a good caring person is knowing when to let it be. Good enough. And some things just have to be taken to the Nth degree! After all, it does have your name on it!

2016 is the year of Earth retrogrades. Common sense. Getting things done that are the foundations of our lives. Taurus is our body, being centered and well grounded, strong and kind. This second Rx, in Virgo, is taking care of our body and each other, developing life skills and craftsmanship. Capricorn takes that healthy body to the top of the mountain, is a Father, has a successful career, ages well!

Blessed be, stay so very true!

*Added Aug 20
