Mar 28   Jupiter Opposite Saturn  This is it’s 3rd and last one!  Not only is it the last of the three, but the very last of all the 2009, 2010 difficult aspects that brought our economy down.  Hooray and hallelujah!  And in the grand scale of difficult aspects, this is not considered high on the list.

Jupiter is the big planet with the Great Red Spot, to me the Third Eye, the Seer – see-er, who looks to the future, far in the distance.  It can afford to be joyful because it knows this too will pass, and if it really is unhappy, can educate people to a different way to improve its chances, or travel on where its offerings will be appreciated, often sharing stories along the way.  In Aries, it thunders along, seven-league boots like never before!

Very different from the usually polite Libra Saturn animal who commits and won’t leave, ever.  It said it would do it, and it will.  Saturn is serious about making it work right here, pruning where needed, tucking in, using what’s at hand.  It sets priorities, and knocks them off the list with great focus, not really minding the hard work.  Great endurance and fortitude, righting and restoring balances, both in personal relationships and community wide.  But don’t be too soft.  Saturn will use its scythe, whether a look, a few to-the-point words, or simply turning its back on you.  You know you need to step up to the plate for real.  It commands respect.

Combining those strategies, or calling on them as you can, is a great skill, that makes a lot of sense, kinda the know ‘when to hold, when to fold’ principle.  Are you running away, or have you over stayed your welcome?  Is the work burdensome with little return, do you need to let go, find a better fit?  Good.  Work the balance, reach out to opposites to improve your style, extend your capacity, enjoy life more.      

Mercury - Fleet Feet, Nimble Mind!

March 30 to April 23, Mercury Retrograde, 24 to 12 Degrees Aries!  In firey spirited Aries it is truly fleet of feet, nimble of mind!  The messenger of the Gods can’t wait this time! It tries out whatever presents itself in the moment, not a moment to lose!  But, as you can, be especially careful not to have your car serviced during retrograde – do it well beforehand or after.  Anticipate any mechanical or motion device needs.  Not a time to buy a car, take up a new sport or dance, make art related to fire, start a new business, print a lot of cards.  If you must do an installation or a seminar, expect delays and a ton of questions, a lot of follow up.  New friendships may fizzle, the new place may lose its sparkle.  As with all Mercury retrograde purchases, get exchangeable or returnable items, large warranties; don’t do anything you can’t afford to make a mistake about.  Not a good time to repaint that wild new color.  After the retrograde, and the Aries stellium is over, you will wonder what got into you!  But, hey, it was spiffy while it lasted!  Who would have ever thought you would do that?!  Maybe it was worth it for that alone!  Next!

Sendai, Japan Quake – Tsunami March 11, 2011

Today, March 11, Uranus (quakes) gave it a last kick at the 29th, last degree and last day of Pisces (ocean), before going into Aries, by shaking us with the Sendai, Japan Quake!  9.0 made it the largest earthquake to hit Japan and the fifth largest in the world since records began in 1900.  Google Person Finder for Sendai Quake, click here

Uranus is the planet of quakes, electricity.  It and Neptune, planet of the ocean, tsunamis, have been traveling closely together in late degrees since April 2009.  Neptune just entered its last degree, the 29th degree, March 5.  The 29th degree classically is thought of as at the end of your rope, sometimes the last chance, endings, fatalities, completions, maturity, a done deal, little can be done about what was, and you are on the brink of imminent irrevocable change. 

This quake chart, just off coast of Sendai, Japan, has Uranus and Neptune both at 29 degrees, in each other’s signs!   Neptune is in the 7th house of relationships;  Uranus is in the 8th house, the house of death and transformation.  Aquarius is the 7th house cusp sign, and the sign Uranus rules.  Aquarius has to do with awakening, sometimes shocks, always change, making friends with people often very unlike us.  It also has to do with worldwide networking, the internet.  Early warnings were rapidly sent to the Pacific rim coastal areas. 

Uranus is still T square, the Moon’s Nodes!  This is significant because the Moon is Queen of the tides!  Ocillations, waves, undulations, are both Lunar and Uranian!  Uranus is the planet of Aquarius.  Think of the Aquarian symbol.  Electrical, sound, light, waves.  T squares are challenges, breakages in patterns, impediments, pressures.  The nodes are now at 28 degrees.  Uranus at 29, just nudged them over the line.

Charts of major events are always a conglomerate of aspects that have reached a threshold.  Some of the aspects are background, have stirred the pot before the event occurs.  Long term, slower aspects show potential.  Others, often fast moving aspects, are triggers and the event at core, very close to exact.  Then there are the aspects still building, indicating the aftermath, how the matter is handled. 

Recently we have had Jupiter square Pluto, Feb 25, and we are building to giant Jupiter’s Mar 17 perihelion (closest to Sun in 12 years and moving twice as fast as usual!) AND Mar 28, Jupiter opposite Rock of Gibraltar, hold-on-forever, concentrated, containing, Saturn!  In this chart they are in a wide T square, the Jupiter Pluto combo still smoldering, Jupiter already encountering the Saturn wall, making pressure.  This is all kinds of push/pull!  Jupiter simply has mass, can be a righteous bully, wants to move and does.  Pluto has power, and plenty of it, often unseen, a force to be reckoned with.  Saturn is stone cold, not giving in, will outwait you.  I’m dramatizing here to give you a sense of the symbolic stresses in play.   Jupiter at its time closest the sun, as it does once every 12 years, is more empowered than usual!

Just 2 days ago, March 9 Mars just had its 2 year perihelion!  It is at 12 degrees Pisces, midpoint (equidistantly between) Venus 10 Aquarius and Jupiter 10 Aries!  Mars rules Aries, so adds to Jupiter’s already amped energy!  Venus in Aquarius, sextile Jupiter, considered a protective aspect, perhaps mitigated circumstances, less were killed.  Some quakes and tsunamis have taken many more people.

The Moon, 0 degrees Gemini, square Chiron, 2 degrees Pisces, was the closest difficult aspect in time, with Moon sextile Mercury also at 2 degrees, in Aries.  The Moon can apply to the masses, the people, homes and businesses.  Chiron can be a wound, often rather fateful, unavoidable, even unfixable.  Pisces is the ocean, so a tidal sweeping, some never to return or be found, unknowns.   

Our hearts go to those who have lost so much, many not even having a place to sleep, no possessions left.  Economic recovery is one thing, loss of loved ones goes deeper.  Wounds can be life changing, and the Chironic symbolism is played out to entirety.  Wounded, healer, teacher.

Aug 20 Virgo Mercury Retrograde until Sep 12

Mercury, Communications

Time for changes in your system, your health practices, services you render, pet care, arrangements with your landlord/tenants.  Try some new things in your garden, clean up your life.  Be gentle about keeping appointments by keeping people informed when there is a change of schedule.  Don’t be surprised when there are mix ups!  Don’t move unless you have to.  If you do, have options for further change.  Buy returnable items or ones with hefty guarantees.  Get second opinions and if possible, wait until 5 days after Mercury goes direct Sep 12 to make up your mind.   Please see About Mercury Retrograde.

Aug 21 Saturn square Pluto 3rd of three 

All three of these have occurred with Saturn in Libra.  Many will be happy this aspect is done since one of its most difficult possibilities is bankruptcy.  Wise use of funds, applying time to earning income, apprenticing to learn financially rewarding skills, building steadily, protecting oneself from cheats, accepting the reality of what we don’t want to see, extending oneself into relationships that bring power in a good way, are intense challenges.  Achieved feels darn good.  

Please also see Nov 15, 2009 and Jan 31, 2010 

Hooray!!!!  This aspect marks the last of the difficult 2010 aspects that have been associated with major economic shifts that have caused many changes in related issues.  Since there is not a series of easy, classically favorable, aspects until mid 2011, other than personal excellent aspects, change for more easy living is going to take some more time.  All you do now to forward those changes will pay off, so even if the pay off isn’t immediate, stack the deck.  Chance favors the prepared mind – Louis Pasteur.  

That’s why I love astrology!
