Rebuilding our foundations, forging a more beautiful future.
The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter in Libra inconjunct Chiron, started the 2016 set of SIX aspects in retrograde, reverse order through May 18. The wildest of the set, is the March 2 Jupiter opposite Uranus!
We are in countdown days! Many of us have followed the seven time Uranus square Pluto since 2010! At times we have been hysterical, held in suspense with bated breath, sometimes enduring, sometimes kicking the traces of old inbred power and mores. Cultural, racial, sexual, gender, economic, environmental and climate change. Primal matters have been on the line, some to the degree of extinction, to changes of necessity for survival. The square is in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17 and doesn’t go back! It won’t be the click of a switch and it’s over. Such long term major matters permeate deeply throughout our layers, to reach subconscious levels of our lives. It leaves us years of work to integrate, to reach a sustainable ability to reiterate our new thinking that gradually has become part us us in a new working order. We simply aren’t the same people we were 7 years ago. The internet and social media have moved things along even faster than in times before.
Uranus has squared Pluto from the Aries side. Now we have Jupiter square Pluto from the Libra side, opposite Uranus!
During these final days of Uranus square Pluto, we have acquired a new president, elected under the auspice of the first Jupiter square Pluto in Capricorn Nov 24, 2017. The square was part of a 5 planet TSquare that day, with slow moving outer planets at each point – meaning it had long term impact! See more. It was the aspect leading up to the Nov 8 vote, and became the 1st exact aspect, the opening aspect, after the Nov 8 Presidential Election!
Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. March 2 it opposes Uranus, changes, rebellion! It can be like an explosion! We are making adjustments, rebalancing with our new President. It will be a challenging time for many of us through Nov 2, 2017. Choose your battles, stay long term intentional, stay focused and don’t forget who you are.
Pluto in Capricorn works with financial and health resources, environmental and animal welfare, which are undergoing dramatic changes. Jupiter’s ‘truth’ and opinions are running the gamut. The tables have turned and the Old Guard Capricorn is protecting and walling in its own. Pluto rules money, old money, oil money. Pluto brings greed, the worst fears of poverty and loss of medical insurances. At best it wants to share and heal, use investments for the greater good.
Libra calls for negotiation, getting to know others better. Jupiter in Libra concerns relationships, social and cultural matters – immigrants, foreign relations. Jupiter calls for the best and highest education. In Libra it often uses examples of daily living, metaphors ~ a way of describing something by equating it with something else. This square is tilting the entire US education system with the appointment of Betsy DeVos. A new balance is being struck.
If this aspect makes difficult connections with your birth chart, be cautious in business, keep your security up to date. Update or make a will as far in advance as possible. See your astrologer for a good date and time. Stay clean in your personal relationships, wait to marry. There may be lack of funding for school, the school, curriculum or instructor you wanted may not be available. Though a challenging time for education, it may need to be done anyway. Make the best of what you can.
Librans, mind your kidneys/sugar. Capricorns, take it easy on your bones, teeth and skin.
The third Jupiter square Pluto will be Aug 4, 2017, preceding the Aug 7 Lunar Eclipse. If these squares aspect your personal chart, pay attention now so you can do your part in how it plays out. Challenges can be sorted out. Set your goals for then about these specific matters.
Good news, bad news, complaints and lots needs fixing! Let’s roll up our shirt sleeves and together do what it takes! The work continues. Never give up.

Happy Birthdays, Virgos!
Let it loose! Here is Double Virgo Jada Pinkett Smith Gotham style!
Sep 18, 1971 Jada is not only a double Virgo, Sun and Moon, but has two other planets in Virgo as well, Mercury and Pluto, for a four planet Stellium! She may be only 5′, but she is tall spirited!
As an actress, she started young at the Baltimore School for the arts, is an honorary member of Alpha Kappa Alpha, the oldest historically black collegiate sorority in the United States. Recently she starred in the first season of Fox’s crime drama Gotham as the notorious gangster Fish Mooney. Fish turned out to be a surprise favorite, and though she had her demise at the season finale, people are wondering….
Noted for her philanthropy and activism, Jada co-founded the Will and Jada Foundation with her husband Will Smith. The foundation gives money towards youth educational projects and helps deprived children from inner cities and their families. In December 2006, Jada donated $1 million to the Baltimore School for the Arts, in memory of her dear friend Tupac Shakur. In 2012, on behalf of PETA, Pinkett Smith wrote a letter to Baltimore’s mayor, asking that the visiting Ringling Brothers Circus”comply with Baltimore’s absolute prohibition of the use of devices such as bullhooks” and not harm the elephants. In 2013, she appeared in a video clip for Gucci’s “Chime for Change” campaign that aims to raise funds and awareness of women’s issues globally.
In addition, she is a good businesswoman with various investments and her own fashion label! Perhaps her greatest ‘investment’ is her marriage with Will Smith, of Men in Black fame. They have been married 17 years, have two marvelous children, son Jaden and daughter Willow! Catch those names!
See her Chart!

Virgo, Worthy and Wonderful!
Young at heart, clean in Spirit. Virgo doesn’t so much question why it needs doing, they are usually willing workers, honored to be of Service. More they ask how can it be done with the best result. There is a purity, even an innocence, that the Virgin is graced with. They are natural followers of the seasons. Seeds get planted, crops tended, food gathered for the table, harvest for winter done, storage for the future secured.
Harvest of a lifetime. Their personal season is harvest time, when the grains come in. They have a primal instinct for quality caring, because they realize if the plants aren’t good, the best seeds aren’t saved, if the crop isn’t strong, there may not be enough food for winter, good health, or to plant anew next year. They are naturally tuned to plants, the herbs, for medicine. Often they craft intricate beauty from wood, from trees, the biggest plants of all!
Master craftsmanship. Skills develop both from guidance from elders and experience. Experience is vital; they have to see it! Give your younguns things to DO! Virgos are quick to take up new ways as times and needs change, research and education bring more valid information. Virgos have the blessing of adaptability. They can adapt what comes to them to their use, or adapt themselves cleverly to the change that comes. Sorting and sifting aligns the details of the mix into larger categories. Links are found; things flow smoothly. New tools are contrived, custom cabinets and furniture built, woodworking done, baby’s cradle, the rocking horse gifts made. Building clothes is simple.
Our daily bread. That’s feeding, eating the right foods, vitamins, herbs. Keeping things clean, mending clothes, keeping the budget, shopping. Virgos can do a myriad of things in a short time.Way with words! Writing, instructions, manuals, how tos, data compendiums, fact gathering, research are all Virgo arts. It can be poetry to detailed historical novels, intricate puzzing crime stories (Agatha Christie), how to gather herbs! Home libraries are prized, valuable assets at your fingertips.
Personal workspace. These intense things they do require uninterrupted attention and often quiet thoughtfulness as they go. They need to know where their tools are, and it’s hard to make them leave what they are working on! They don’t want to lose that step-by-step focus and miss a beat. Makes a difference, you know. Just like dropping a stitch when knitting. Integrity both of worker and product is at stake. Take them AWAY for weekends to get their minds off things so they can connect with YOU!
Constitution. Virgos can be delicate. Each one has their own needs for kinds of foods and the time of day to eat them. Though adaptable, they also often live for their routines. Sensitive to prevailing circumstances, people’s moods and whims, they may feel nervous and off kilter, be fretful. If you are a Virgo, have a chat with yourself. Get someone to help out while things are aflutter. Get a nap here and there; stay with food that works for you. If you are the friend or mate, slow down, listen, hear them out. They are good people wanting the best for everyone. It upsets them when they think they can’t do that for you.
Relationships. Complex. Some people love what Virgo has to offer but not the manner of delivery. Virgos are certain they are right, and they usually are!!! They expect a lot of themselves and of you too! Virgos need to be careful of scorn, criticism and condescension, both giving and receiving. Maybe others don’t work as hard as you do or in the same way you do, but people have you because they need you too. You need things they have that you don’t have. Give yourself and everyone a hug, a chance, and some time. Practice smiling with all your heart. Virgos, give gratitude again and again. Give praise again and again. Mates of dear self critical Virgos need you to give them plenty of praise and gratitude! They are marvelously intelligent, so often right on the money, but they don’t always think they are. Blessings all around.
Virgos truly are Worthy and Wonderful! So thankfully, Divine Order prevails.

Windsurfer Nancy Rios of the United States of America competed in the Women’s RS:X class race held at the Qingdao Olympic Sailing Center during day 4 of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games on August 12, 2008 in Qingdao, China. (Photo by Clive Mason/Getty Images AsiaPac) Nancy has Neptune in a grand trine with her Sun/Jupiter/Mercury and Moon!
Feb 3 Neptune into its own sign Pisces for 13 years until March 2025. Neptune takes 168 years to orbit, so only those of us living now get to experience the potency of this magic! Neptune and Chiron have been traveling together since 2008. Chiron is about two times as fast as Neptune, so now will be moving on, leaving Neptune behind, though both will be in Pisces for the next six+ years.
Neptune first entered Pisces back on April 4, 2011, jump started by the amazing Aries Stellium! See the chart! It retrograded back into Aquarius, finishing up support group matters, realigning finances, now Neptune is on his way, no going back!
Don’t ever think of Neptune, or its sign Pisces, as a lack luster planet or sign! They quiver with life! Ocean water is their element, and it takes power to meet power, or you die. Intuition is prime. The ability to morph, act, make music, transform themselves and others, is beyond words. It takes strength to know when to retreat, to rest, be in recovery, to do it. It is work to meditate, to live spiritual tenets, keep faith when the world is falling.
It’s from life generated in your own personal primordial tide pool, to gliding the silvery sails of Spirit! It’s living in colonies with your brethren, touching, close as sea anemones on a rock, bunks in ships at sea, monks in a monastery. It is swimming at exquisite depth, total immersion, prayer/meditation, 100% tuned in, safely alert to danger, transformation possible! Being swept away tsunami style, or still at the moment of tide’s turn, highs and lows, advance and retreat. Sleep and dreams, daydreams, waking visions. There is a terrific amount of involvement – fishing industries, boatyards and watercraft sales, ocean sports, retreats and spas, cruises – floating cities, ocean’s edge tourist towns with parties, music, drink, theatre. Other places, some beaches, islands, are remote, untouched, one can be alone, time stands still, suspended. Imagination is set free, visions accessed. Some come gradually with each cleansing of life’s tide; some come whole in complete understanding, an insight, the Gate is open, the Threshold crossed. Mythically, there are Mermaids and Magicians. There are whole skies full of stars at night with no land in sight; you can hear the sound of your own thinking. Close your eyes………
Each of us, in turn, will be touched, as Neptune goes through the degrees, one time activating one planet, then another, until it does them all. What we call the Mutable signs, Pisces, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, will be activated most strongly, perhaps confusion at first, but stirring new options. Fellow water signs, Cancer and Scorpio, may take things in stride, flowing with advantages that may have seemed hidden. Leo and Libra will be nudged and niggled, peripherally, but perhaps too busy socially to pay the attention it may be worth. Capricorn and Taurus, could do some good business incorporating Piscean talent and products, events.

- Scorpio – Fires Within
Wednesday Oct 26 | 12.56 PM Pacific | Super New Moon | 3 Degrees Scorpio This is the 5th of 2011’s 6 Super Moons. Super Moons are when the Moon is 90% or greater of its closest approach to Earth. When it is a full moon, it appears as much as 15% bigger! They indicate more intensity, higher tides, strong storms if there is one, higher seismic activity. This is a NEW MOON, and Scorpio is noted for intensity of the deep dark water variety! Records could be set, relationships could start or crumble, there could be revelations about money sources, resurrection of old alliances, brushes with death, healing through saturation/immersion, miracles! Time alone may be deeply needed and appreciated, a transfixion of quietness. This is happening midday, so you may need to get away, take a bit later lunch, to meditate or have a private meeting. Being a new moon, perhaps it is small beginnings, let things grow in their natural way. The temptation is to use force, but avoid pushing at it, causing a distortionate break or growth ahead of its time. Being only two days before the Jupiter trine Pluto puts it in that aspect’s hot zone! There may be an ebb then a leap! Read on….
Thursday Oct 27: Occultations are Eclipses too, not just Moon/Sun Combos! They occur when planets are lined up both horizontally and vertically, exactly in the line of sight! Some years they happen again and again, often to the same planet. 2011 there are only 3, all formed by the Moon to different planets – 6.30 Venus, 7.27 Mars, 10.27 Mercury. Oct 27’s Moon occultation Mercury is our last of the year. Moon is emotional, Mercury is logical, and they are making a merger! Feel what you think, say what you feel, but be really careful because this one is in Scorpio. You can’t take back what you have said, and it may cut deep. If a conversation even hints at turning South, let it go, NOW. There may be an unanticipated price down the road, even revenge. And it takes a lot of effort to repair, sometimes can’t be repaired. The other side is someone may tell you something more valuable than you even realize at the time. You may be healed or given a key piece of information that transforms you, your situation, relationship. And it may be a blessing in disguise. There could be an ending that serves you well in the long-term, and actually has been overdue. Be able to engage, listen big, disengage if needed. It’s a life skill worth having. This is especially true this occultation because first Mercury is activated by its direct alignment with the Moon at 22 Scorpio at 7:08 PM, then the Moon passes over Venus at 23 Scorpio at 9:23 PM, just a little over 2 hours later!
First the New Moon quiets us, making us thoughtful in behind-the-scenes observant Scorpio, on the 26th. Then the Moon, Mercury, Venus combination makes us extra aware of home and family, about love, the 27th. It opens our capacity to attune, speak our love and affection, to kindly and potently tell what we want, both personally and in business, to see more clearly how we can make the money to support ourselves, loved ones, do things we naturally love. These are the catalysts and a poignant part of the forming Jupiter trine Pluto, exact the very next day, the 28th, at 9:46 AM Pacific!
Friday Oct 28 Second Jupiter trine Pluto at 5 degrees Taurus and Capricorn. This and the Jupiter sextile Chiron (the next one will be Dec 6) have been the aspects that have kept the Stock Market up this year. Jupiter is expansionary, lucky, wise, foresees the directions things will take, is optimistic, will take long odds and win! It has an extraordinary ability with perspective, watches the big picture, is playful. Can’t keep a good Sag/Jupiterian down! Pluto is the planet of wealth and Chiron of business! Pluto cleans up messes, is expert at rebuilding after losses, recovery from illness, never says die! When in top order, it is a clean machine! Deep and internal cleansing, firing people who are not able to make the returns needed, are its forte. Though at times painful for the recipient, in the long-term, the move is usually the best and reform and transformation happen. Jupiter wants space; Pluto wants mergers and deep intimacy. So, if a merger happens, it is probably a better deal than usual. There has to be a real attraction for Jupiter to see a future in it and accept the transaction. It will likely be a long-term value. See more at last month’s pre Jupiter trine Pluto post.
Jupiter is fame, fiery, education, and speed sports; Pluto is death and healing, charisma, power. The first trine was July 7 – on July 8 we lost Betty Ford, died at the age of 93. She was known primarily for her work post-whitehouse and for founding one of the most famous rehabilitation facilities (The Betty Ford clinic) in the world. Widow of former president Gerald Ford. Coming into this second trine, we have lost two. 1) Steve Jobs Oct 5 (4 degree trine): Chairman and Co-Founder of Apple, died due to complications from pancreatic cancer. He was 56. Jobs was known for his keynote speeches that were given each year to update the loyal Apple followers, as well as his enlightening interview style. 2) Oct 16 (2 degree trine): IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon died after suffering severe injuries in a spectacular 15-car wreck at the Las Vegas Indy 300. He was 33 years old. The two-time Indianapolis 500 winner (including this year’s event) was critically hurt when his car sailed over the top of another during a massive, fiery wreck on Lap 11. Ironically he had been driving test cars to avoid exactly that.
All of these people made powerful contributions, each in their own way. May they rest in Peace. And may we LIVE this aspect well, and carry on its teachings with Grace.

MOON Void of Course ALL DAY daytime 10 times in Cancer! June 22, 27 and July 1, 3, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 17. VC is thought of in two main ways. Nothing will come of it; there is nothing to stop it. Whichever school you are of, be wise about making appointments, starting projects, on those days. For more on Void of Course, see the last item on the page at this link.
July 1 Solar Eclipse New Moon at 9 Cancer finishes our sequence of 3 eclipses in a row. Feeling what you are saying, doing, is vital. Your feelings have SUCH potency. Your effect on others runs a course from one person to the next. Seeing how much your feelings affect those around you may make you choose to divert your attention to more positive feelings. Feelings can consume your attention so you don’t think or see anything else, holding you from seeing out in front of you, and moving forward. Emotions have enormous effect on your vitality and health. Emotions tell you what’s up, and how important it is! Take good care of yourself, like what you feed yourself. Good organic food creates your chemical balance, makes a difference.
One of the true Cancer gifts is loving people unconditionally. We see it with Mom’s and their children. It’s a true power – they can lift that car right off their kid! Practice that power of love yourself, to yourself, to others, adults. Often what seems irrational about them, scares us, but when we sit with them for a time, walk in their shoes, they become simple and understandable, maybe a lot like us! Even if not, all beings deserve love and care? If the Soul is of many life times duration, as some of us speculate, fostering a self worthiness can go a long way in healing. It gives them the message they are worth it.

Sathya Sai Baba is gone, tornadoes came to Alabama, William & Kate had their Royal Wedding, and the beatification of John Paul II happened!
Bin Laden’s assassination has brought extremes of thinking and further stirred an already boiling world-wide pot! Pluto in Capricorn has brought changes in long time regimes, and isn’t quitting. Though bin Laden didn’t ‘rule’ for a long time, he made world-wide impact as being thought to be the power behind the 911 attack, being so immune to capture, and simply being tall among men, confirmed 6′ 4″ tall. Uranus, planet of surprises, in fiery Aries, is coming closer and closer into its square (challenge) with Pluto, of death and healing, and will continue to be in this square until Mar 16, 2015, making 7 exact aspects! This aspect will continue to topple governments and powerful leaders. And, the Phoenix will rise from its own ashes.
Deciphering the moment of death is a challenge in this kind of situation. LivingMoonAstrology.com says ‘The American commando stormed the suburban home where Bin Laden was living on May 2, 2011, at around 1 am local time, according to a witness [Sohaib Athar] twitting the events in real time.’ Wikipedia says ‘ At approximately 1:00 a.m. local time (20:00, May 1 UTC), the SEALs breached the compound’s walls using explosives and attacked the compound’s structures and the compound’s guards opened fire.’ Also, ‘”The encounter with bin Laden lasted only seconds,” according to Politico, and took place during “the last five or 10 minutes” of the raid.’ CNN reported ‘A firefight was under way for most of the 40  minutes that U.S. Special Operations forces were in the compound, as the team encountered resistance from bin Laden and three other men, a senior defense official said. The official said the forces had to fight their way through the first floor of the three-story building, where two adult males lived. Bin Laden and his family lived on the second and third floors, and they were cleared last, with bin Laden killed in the last five or 10 minutes of the siege, the official said.’ But, the HeraldNews.SunTime.com says ‘But bin Laden refused to give himself up. That’s when he was shot in a bedroom — only minutes into the raid — ending a 10-year manhunt.’ Wiki further says ‘The raid was intended to take 30 minutes. All told, the time between the team’s entry in and exit from the compound was 38 minutes. Time in the compound was split into exchanging gunfire with the defenders and searching the compound for information.’
Maybe it took them 10 minutes to have his wife ID him, do the photo ID comparisons, body bag him and transport him to the helicopter and leave? That puts us back to 1:28 AM. I put up a chart for May 2, 2011, at 1:28 AM in Abbottabud, Pakistan.
Death of Osama bin Laden Astrology Chart
Bin Laden’s death chart Moon is at 25 Aries. It connects with 4 factors in bin Laden’s Mar 10, 1957 sunrise birth chart [birth time unknown]. 1) It same degree semi sextiles his sunrise Mars (with South Node) at 25 Taurus – didn’t surrender. Mars is the planet of Aries, so this is a stronger semi sextile than usual. 2) The Moon trines his Pluto at 28 Leo, forming a Grand Trine – smooth flowing, with the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius! He was a man connected with the destinies of nations, even when he was in a cave! Perhaps it was good it went quickly. I think there will be more to the story in time. Perhaps good will come of it in as yet unforeseeable ways. 3) It inconjuncts his Jupiter 27 Virgo that squares the Galactic Center, schisms between religions, family and funerals – he was hated by many, ‘buried’ at sea, and his son was killed. 4) It sextiles his sunrise Moon 27 Gemini, which was opposite the Galactic Center. It was through his courier, Gemini, to his home, Moon, that revealed his location. In some charts the Moon rules the People, in others it is the women and children, your family and home. Certainly, we are hearing amazing points of view about the event. The Moon is a fast moving factor, so it wouldn’t be expected, but in both charts, the Royal Wedding and this one, the Moons are connected with the Galactic Center, making international news. Both of these events then, are connected with the Mayan Sacred Tree/Crossroads of Dec 21, 2012 calendar end/turnover, since the Sacred Tree center occurs only 6 degrees of the Galactic Center!
The six planet Aries stellium is formidable. This is not a peacemaking combination, but a charging war! Osama was shot twice, and it was done. The whole operation took only 38 minutes. The Aries Moon is Void of Course like in William & Kate’s Royal Wedding chart! Astrologers would rarely choose a VOC Moon for an event, yet here again, we have a successful enterprise. None of the horary astrology ‘exception’ rules apply to this chart as they did in William & Kate’s, but six planets in Aries?! That could ram through just about anything! And once a Taurus gets moving…. True, there is the other Void of Course caveat. Compared to ‘nothing will come of it’ – that would be good if there are no further attacks/retaliations on America, ‘there’s nothing to stop it’ was exactly what happened! Perhaps it’s a bit like the retrograde rule – if you are experienced with a matter, you will usually succeed during a retrograde.
Specifically, Mars doubly powerful in its own sign, conjunct lucky Jupiter, is like a powerhouse! Mars is fast, fervent, focused, loves machines and weapons and fights, is especially courageous if the underdog. They did lose that helicopter though. Uranus of flight in a breaking square with Pluto endings. Then they killed the helicopter with an explosion, Uranus, to obliterate it for security reasons, Pluto and Pluto. That Mars/Jupiter conjunction in Aries has only happened two times before since 1900, Jan 6, 1940, and June 16, 1975. This one was the day after the Royal Wedding, and the day of bin Laden’s assassination!
The Sun is at 11 degrees Taurus, in a life force breaking square with the Ascendant 15 degrees Aquarius. In a manner, the bird is set free. Taurus may be too slow and low in the chart to recover from this rift in the organization. The Royal Wedding chart Sun also squares the Ascendant but in different signs! The Ascendant/Descendants are reversed! Theirs is 5 Leo Ascending while bin Laden’s death chart is 15 Aquarius Ascending. I said, ‘With the Sun square the Ascendant, how you appear to others, they may not always look good.’ The Sun is leaving the sextile with Chiron, marriage, and the trine with Pluto, wealth. No more. And the Sun has moved up to inconjunct Saturn, another kind of life force weakening/breaking aspect, often not good for your health. I said, ‘Sun inconjunct Saturn, can be sad news at times.’
Venus and Mercury have moved just beyond the opposition with Saturn in Libra that was in the Royal Wedding chart making communications an issue, or perhaps creating and keeping a bridge of connection. In this case it is good there was no connection; he never saw them coming! Mercury has moved into conjunction with Jupiter, so the news is BIG!
Why the burial at sea? Neptune the planet of the sea is in its own sign Pisces now, the sign of the sea. 29 Pisces is on the 2nd cusp, the part of the chart that has to do with one’s body. 29 Pisces is the last degree of the last sign of the Zodiac, conjunct the 7 Weeping Sisters, the Pleiades. The End. Osama, himself a Pisces, has gone ‘home.’ Saturn is in the 8th of death, and rules the 12th of end of Spirit. The usual options were blocked. The ritual performed was probably the best they could do to show respect to a formidable warrior, stop further damage. Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s sign, suggests a death of necessity, to end the past with a significant message. Perhaps enough time has passed that he won’t be made a martyr.
Wishing you peace and healing no matter what your circumstances are. I had a friend who was in the towers, survived 911, but her Spirit was struck. I pray, in time, losses and revenge will dissolve to forgiveness. Blessed be.
April 1998 in Afghanistan. Osama bin Laden, Pisces born March 10, 1957

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!
