Aquarius glorious Sunrise/Sunset.  Jupiter super trine Uranus!

 June 21 Notes:  The very next day after Cancer starts is the final JUPITER TRINE URANUS! This is a superstar aspect, fame and fortune in the good old fashioned fortune telling kind of way! In Leo and Aries, it is a total cause to celebrate for fire and air signs!

♦♦ June 30 is the final Jupiter inconjunct Chiron in Pisces. These are the final two exact aspects of the entire 4-planet set we have been having. However, though it is fading, we are continuously in the auspice of the glorious Jupiter trine Uranus until July 21! 


Jupiter, Pluto, Chiron, Uranus! Yod, Inconjuncts, Trine!

We are still in the midst of this four planet pattern, 2015’s biggest, involving Jupiter in Leo inconjunct Pluto and Chiron, YOD, while super trine Uranus in Aries! It is happening both before and after the Uranus square Pluto culmination March 16. Jupiter with Pluto and Uranus are in continuous connection throughout! Jupiter is with Chiron and Uranus again in June and since Chiron and Uranus are traveling closely by degrees, it continues to make close connections with them through 2019, skips 2020, then does again 2021!

The first pass, Jupiter retrograde is making its second yod, the first was Sep 9 through 23, 2014, with Chiron and Pluto. This time it is also trining Uranus, Uranus being the culprit squaring Pluto! So Pluto is being aspected by TWO outer planets during Uranus’s final square to it. This set of aspects is significant because they are holding the pattern continuously from before to after the Uranus square Pluto culmination aspect.

Pluto/Scorpio The second pass is not in reverse order, either. Due to planetary motion, rather than the Jupiter trine Uranus that preceded the Uranus square Pluto, instead the square is followed by Jupiter inconjunct Pluto, holding Pluto to the flame! Not only that, the next event is Saturn retrograde back into Pluto’s sign Scorpio June 14, for further cleanup, letting go, healing, reorganizing and renewing careers and commitments of all kinds.

June 22 Jupiter trines Uranus and June 30 inconjuncts Chiron the final third times and concludes the four planet pattern that started in September.

Here is the upcoming timeline of the exact aspects. The second column designates whether it is the first, second or third time the aspect happens. The last column is the degree and sign the faster moving planet is at, in this case, Jupiter.

Jupiter Chiron Pluto Yod, super Trine Uranus AstroLogical Transit Timeline 2015

Jupiter YOD Chiron and Pluto!

A Yod is formed by one planet being inconjunct, at about 150 degrees of two other planets and them about 60 degrees apart from each other. In other words, one planet making two different inconjuncts at the same time. Inconjuncts by themselves are a bit off center, the intention to skew the shape of things so you find information that changes your direction slightly, tunes it. It may enhance what is well in place. Since a Yod has an inconjunct to each side, there is a symmetry, support from both sides. The supports are not the same though, so it may feel a bit odd, yet there is more intelligence, like different kinds of radar, scanning as you walk your Path. The planet at the point is key. It leads the way, probing, discovering, forging, OR the two other planets are in front, seeking the best doable path and opportunities, while the planet at the point trails behind guarding, motivating, safely carrying the treasure.

You can see there are all kinds of combinations possible, and directions can reverse in a heartbeat! Truly dynamic, maximum resourcefulness!

♦ Jupiter Inconjunct Chiron

  • Feb 1 Jupiter starts 3 degrees of inconjunct Chiron in Pisces, exact Feb 17 (day before 2nd Aquarius New Moon!), leaves 3 degrees Mar 7.
  • June 13 Jupiter reenters a 3 degree range, is exact June 30, leaves 3 degrees July 15. This aspect sets the boundaries of the set, the start, and concludes the entire set.

Jupiter and Chiron have traveled many of the same paths together and both have Centaur connections. Jupiter is the planet of Sagittarius, sign of the Centaurs. Chiron was a Centaur, their leader! Jupiter and Chiron are both teachers, are good at business when they settle for it, unless it goes with them, a traveling business. The inconjunct adjustments that take place here are matters of principle. Jupiter in Leo can seem to over do it, while Chiron in Pisces may be over at the monastery doing without, unless they are down at the music festival or concert too! Jupiter and Leo love spending and gambling, certain all will be well. Pisces doesn’t always care about worldly things, yet Chiron is great at business and loves a romantic marriage. And, of course, Jupiter loves ceremony and Leo all the grand trappings! A few discussions may be in order, with a few roars tolerated, and some pitiful pouting at the Pisces end of things. Take breaks for tea and embracing. Compliment each other on your superb antics!

Feb 7 to Mar 7 Jupiter/Chiron/Pluto YOD! All three planets are within a continuous 3 degree YOD! The date all three are the very closest is Feb 22 at 1 AM.  Yods are like stretchers! They tug at the sides of things, like a child tugging your skirt. Nothing is quite straight boringly forward. It might nag a bit. Peripheral vision enhances the depth of your perception, catching little details that have bearing on, and enrich what’s in front of you. There is more collaboration potential as you gather in the bystanders who weren’t doing much anyway, perhaps just blundering along rather aimlessly. With you they find what they were looking for too. So blessed you invited them, both them and you! Have a keen awareness, your world is expanding!

Jupiter, the planet at the YOD point, is the key! It acts as the focal point of the informations Chiron and Pluto have available at the time, and sends it on into the world, flavored by its own type of transmission. Jupiter makes it bigger, more generous, confident, playful, full of options! That’s outgoing. As incoming receiver, it sweeps for ideas from the world at large and telegraphs them to Chiron and Pluto. As an optimistic planet, it raises the ante. By nature it is a planet capable of intense focus, so can make its point impressively! Sometimes it appears to be running away, but maybe it’s taking the lead! Keep up!

Jupiter is midpoint Chiron/Pluto, so there is equal transference. On the exact midpoint date, Feb 22, what isn’t equal is that Jupiter is past the exact inconjunct with Chiron, so that becomes the background, the matters of the past, what was, motivations from the recent experience. Jupiter is approaching, coming to, the inconjunct with Pluto. So the transference comes from Chiron to Pluto! Jupiter’s encounter with Chiron flavors how it speaks to Pluto. Perhaps more gently. Centaur Chiron was an adept healer/teacher. He suffered an incurable wound, speaks from experience. Pluto in Capricorn is more likely to listen to casual Jupiter, sensing a slight shift in Jupiter’s demeanor due to Chiron’s what could be rather serious information. Pluto also an intense healer, may not care for Jupiter’s blunt demeanor, and in Leo, seeming self interest, and at times unnecessary drama, yet respects the reality and finds a way to use the information.

Jupiter/Pluto Dates  Feb 7 Jupiter starts 3 degrees of inconjunct Pluto, exact Feb 27, stays within 3 degrees until exact again May 21, then tapers off, leaves the 3 degree range June 9.

Jupiter to Pluto can act as a siphon, letting the top off the pressures of Pluto in Capricorn, all its expectations and commitments. A silly joke can break the spell and get people back to thinking rather than obsessing. Things get brighter; there is a leading out, away from past pessimisms, despairing cynicisms. Jupiter seeks the root, and Truthteller that Jupiter is, Pluto can’t entirely hide all its secrets. Pain is cleared, a bright new long journey begins, ascends from those ashes. Jupiter often fears no evil, but believe me, it will be a little more sober and wiser, more considerate for having been singed by Pluto’s lava. Pain is pain and needs respect or it can bite. Even rapscallion Centaurs (Jupiter rules Sagittarius, sign of Centaurs) need to know their limits, and sometimes that is a relief. They don’t have to work so hard proving themselves, acting happy every living moment. Equanimity.

Letting go of ego, some projects, maybe retiring, could be under consideration. Adjust your finances to meet current needs. Do work that makes your Soul happy. Make your will. Accept what’s yours, make realistic commitments. Definitely make time for exercise and play adventures! Leo and Capricorn are both Father related, Father Sun, Father Time. Get more clearly connected with your patriarchal history, your Dad, being a Dad. Make loving choices.

♦♦♦ JUPITER  SUPER TRINE  URANUS

A glorious fiery combination, it is also continuous throughout! It starts the trine within 5 degrees Feb 1, is exact March 3 but stays within 5 degrees continuously until the next exact trine June 22, leaving the 5 degree range July 21!

Jupiter in Leo magnanimously casts its blessing to Uranus, the planet making all hell break loose. Thank goodness it’s loose. Letting go every which way. Less complacency. Not always comfortable, but lighter later! Jupiter, planet of the Centaurs, has always loved a good joke, a tall story and lots of mischief! As teachers they are often impeccable, goodness intended, and life changers by the batch (of students)! As travelers, they explore the furthest reaches, old paradigms long forgotten, exchanged for intercultural integration. Abundance flows as growth is embraced.

Uranus brightly in Aries couldn’t be happier! It shimmies like a sparkler firecracker! It loves freedom, cross pollination, bizarre and alien welcome! The old chains of fear and abuse, theft and poverty, racial and religious prejudice, need to be irreparably broken. Gatherings of Souls are called for. Diversity and Oneness. Communities need to take a stand. Research, electronics are pathways to a better way for all. Surprising truths come to light. Perspectives shift.

FAME! This is a super business aspect for spreading the word about what you do! Jupiter is the luckiest of all the planets, has trusted confidence, the best intentions, tons of optimism! Uranus is downright planetary! The fame is unbeatable! Jupiter makes the wildest ideas look Good to the greatest number of people possible! And it’s fun doing it!

Planets and factors in your chart from 13 to 17 degrees will be most likely potently activated by the February/March aspects.

From weather to rights, it takes many aspects, looking at what matters from different vantage points and timing combinations, to make the sweeping changes we are able to be a part of on the planet today. Secure them and make them whole. Keep your eyes on the horizon.

In view of the current Uranus, planet of Freedom, in Aries, square with Pluto in Capricorn, I choose this talk if you would like to hear him.

Thich Nhat Hanh is now in hospital. The Sisters ask that you sit, peacefully for Thay, as they are doing, and send him your love. Also, that you might like to chant for him (you could do it along with the monks and nuns) this Avalokiteshvara Chant: The clip is 3 minutes long. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNfaXNGJiUc. He was said to be in a coma/unconscious state, but a later post says he is responsive! Please see more details and future announcements at www.plumvillage.org

He was born October 11, 1926 in Tha Tien, Quang Ngai province, Vietnam. Now 88 years, he became a Buddhist monk at 16. Saturn in Scorpio, a planet and sign of endings and healings combination, is just past its third return in his chart. 8 is the number of Scorpio, 88 is a Master number. He has served an honorable lifetime, healing, changing, teaching, guiding, mastering how to be a Master.

Thay, as he is affectionately called, has his Moon in Sagittarius I believe. It could be in Scorpio, but Sag fits him. He is a teacher, a traveler, spiritualist. We think of the Moon as a place we have come from in past lives, an accumulation of talent per the sign it is in. He is an adept. The moon shows what our home is like and where it is. His is far from where he was born, now at Plum Village in France, a teaching community he founded.

His Sun is Libra, seeking a balance of cultures, beings, within oneself. His Venus is there too, looking for grace in all places, beauty in all souls, sweetness, kindness.

We don’t know his Ascendant or which houses his planets are in because his birth time is unknown.

Jupiter in Aquarius indicates his world travel, the sharing of wisdom planet wide. It points to the wide range of his thinking. Personally I enjoy his walking meditation concept since in time it became difficult for me to sit. Jupiter in Aquarius trine (the most favorable aspect) his Sun also shows his fame.

Mercury in Scorpio shows a depth of thought beyond average, acute perception. His Mercury is opposite Chiron in Taurus, wounded healer teacher. He requests mindfulness, unstinting awareness that results in seeing one’s own and the needs of others in context of each other.

Mars is in Taurus, a combination of being Steady in the Light, continued good works, divine patience, a strength beyond what is expected, peace in motion. It is square Jupiter, simplicity taking on Goliath, the glorified perversities of a commercial world. Maybe he doesn’t enjoy flying. Powerfully, it sextiles Pluto in Cancer, the planet of finances, the deepest relationships of all, in the sign of nurturing unconditionally. Plum Village has been internationally funded, giving shelter, safety, solitude, to people from all over the world.

Saturn trines Uranus in Pisces and squares the ruler of Pisces, Neptune. He has the support of so many people and challenges the world’s spiritualism. A small nonthreatening man, but powerful nonetheless. It is not always easy for him seeing the blind cruelties that exist. He takes on mere mortal complacency.

With love, we always learn from the charts of others, especially those whose lives are documented. May you be inspired.

Sagittarius Oct 11, 1926 Thich Nhat Hahn, Spiritual Master

We salute you, bow in Spirit, thank you for your service on this planet, Thich Nhat Hanh. Please hold him peacefully in your good thoughts.

Jupiter Yod Pluto/Chiron, super trine Uranus to follow!
Inspiring Darkside of the Moon Space Art by boobooi

Sep 22 note: The August/Sep Jupiter set is culminating! Jupiter inconjuncted Pluto, the YOD is done. We are in the last 2 days of Jupiter inconjunct Chiron exact on the New Moon the 23rd! At the same time, Jupiter is making the first of three super trines with Uranus, the first exact Sep 25! Moon in Sagittarius jumps in to make a quickie Grand Fire Trine with them Sep 29! 


Inconjuncts, Yod, Midpoints!
Jupiter’s Timeline, the Pluto/Chiron YOD
Jupiter Super Trine Uranus!!!

Inconjuncts, Yod, Midpoints!

2015 will be quite different than the intensity of 2014’s major outer planet patterns, the Grand Cardinal Cross and Grand Water Trine. There are no such big patterns like those, though we do have two repeats of the upcoming September 2014 Jupiter YOD Chiron & Pluto, trine Uranus pattern. This pattern is part symmetrical and part not! The first repeat happens Feb and March 2015. This makes it specially significant, because it is the planetary condition immediately preceding the March 16, 2015 Uranus square Pluto. That Mar 16 square is the final aspect, the assault or Planetary Initiation depending on where you stand with it, the unprecedented seventh of seven times that has been with us since 2010! We are SO up for the finishing of this pattern, its maturity, finally.

Plan ahead for end of August/Sep Jupiter inconjuncts, with Pluto then Chiron, then trine Uranus. They are so close in degrees, 11,14, and 15, that when Jupiter is in the degrees between them, they make a Yod, a Y, while concurrently making the first of the three Jupiter trines with Uranus!

Inconjuncts are to the side, compared with oppositions that are straight across the table. Inconjuncts, also called quincunxes, are for awareness, slightly askew, allow tweaking the finer points, are sometimes a diversion, an exploratory that could lead life in a whole nother direction! From the ‘starting’ planet, the faster moving one, inconjuncts can be to the relative Virgo position to the right, or the Scorpio position to the left, health and wealth. In this Yod, planets to both sides, Pluto is in the Virgo spot; Chiron is in the Scorpio spot. All of these signs and planets are considered healers. Virgo holds the time honored herbalist/midwife lineage. Pluto/Scorpio are psychic surgeons, therapists, hospice workers. Chiron tends long term Soul wounds of suffering, seeks remedies and teaches at every opportunity, both patients and students. You see why this YOD is so important.

From the material point of view, Virgo is the bookkeeper/accountant, tending your monies. Pluto/Scorpio is corporations, major finances of all kinds from student loans to mortgages, taxes and inheritances, funding. By many, Chiron is considered an adept in partnerships and business! Either way, health or business, likely both, this is a potent YOD!

Jupiter adds his charm, optimism, perspective, planning talents! Pluto and Chiron are not considered speedy planets, so Jupiter’s fire picks up the pace! Old-timers may feel pushed, but it could be good.

YOD! The inconjuncts that form the Yod work both outgoing and incoming. They fan out, spreading the word, are inquisitive, sensing the perimeters. Doors are opened in unexpected quadrants. The adventurer receives information, and is infused with what was not exactly expected. Venturing off can be a ploy to escape, a possibly negative distraction, a time out, or an enriching game changer! It is often temporarily unsettling until adjustments are made.

Jupiter forms two important Midpoints, to Neptune/Pluto, and to Pluto/Chiron. Pluto is the common factor. No matter how many degrees apart midpoints are they are potent! The equidistant link between the planets gives an exact connection of transference, neither overshadowing or being upstaged by the other. For a moment there is an equanimity, a poised recognition of the essence of their purposes. The understanding that is possible, can find poignant solutions if not fraught with demands of external perversions of others. The web is momentary, but a glimpse may be all that is needed to instill curiosity, imprint the possibilities. Seemingly out of the blue, major change can occur in seconds!

Aug 24 Jupiter exact at the opposite midpoint of Pluto and Neptune! Jupiter has made this unusual series of 8 aspects, with slow moving Neptune and Pluto within a strict 5 degree sextile, every 12 years since Mar 1951 at 18 Pisces. Then in May 1963 at 11 Aries, Oct ’63 at 13 Aries, Feb ’64 at 15 Aries. May ’76 at 12 Taurus, May ’89 at 12 Gemini. Now after a period of time, skipping Cancer, Neptune and Pluto are again within 5 degrees of each other, we have the next to last Jupiter midpoint to them Aug 24 at 8 Leo! Aug 2027 is the last one, at 5 Virgo. It has covered a period of 76 years. Some of us shall have lived through the entire set! See Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Dreams Come True! and Jupiter inconjunct Pluto!

Aug  25           NEW MOON, Mars conjunct Saturn

Sep    5           Jupiter exact inconjunct Pluto 11 degrees
Sep    8           FULL HARVEST SUPERMOON!
Sep 11 – 20  JUPITER YOD ~ is within 3 degrees of both Pluto and Chiron
Sep 14           Jupiter exact opposite midpoint Pluto/Chiron, 13 Leo 2, equidistant from both
Sep  23           Jupiter exact inconjunct Chiron 14 degrees, Libra NEW MOON!

Sep 25         JUPITER TRINE URANUS 15 degrees

The Sep 11 – 20  JUPITER YOD
  • Sep 5 Jupiter inconjunct Pluto  Jupiter ventures into dangerous territory. Big spirited in LEO, its reputation likely precedes it, so may be well received as the bearer of good tidings. One of Jupiter’s gifts, especially in LEO, is optimism and ability to see bigger and better ways to do things, so Pluto may offer a collaboration or merger. Pluto may resist if Jupiter starts delving into secrets, but the secrets may hold the key to ultimate success. Going to be a dance to establish trust. Pluto is in Capricorn these days, so start early, because Cap needs proof over time, for ‘young’ Jupiter to be accepted. Once the liaison is achieved, the good business of life can be sorted. There will be substantial adjustments to the old ways. Jupiter in Leo loves to teach and travel, so the perfect one to do seminars at all the branch offices.At a personal level, there may be a mega questioning of all the sacred rules. Authority may lose the battle to personal preference, a new religion. If the Spirit has been lost or forgotten, it may return home for stabilizing comfort. Any inappropriate behaviors of couples, with children or animals, finances, may be discovered and justice possibly meted out. Stay clean. Father’s, both parental and spiritual, may find themselves rethinking their vows and responsibilities. Timing changes. Careers may be askew, while opened to further options.
  • Sep 23 Jupiter inconjunct Chiron in Pisces  Jupiter and Chiron know how to teach! LEO has heart and generosity and Pisces has compassion, or needs some. LEO, the sign of the Sun, Lights the Way. Chiron can be the wounded or the healer, sometimes both. Jupiter searches for perspective, how to do the ‘right’ thing. It hopes to establish faith, and give insights as well as be an Oracle. This combination is likely to bring unexpected miracles! When you thought there was no hope, the miracle becomes available. But you have to look for it.Jupiter in LEO can have an incredibly focused beam, burns away, vaporizes along held untruth that has resulted in poor health. It can be a beacon to follow to the specific help needed to break the old invisible chain of fear.  There is never a time when more Light isn’t needed, so be sure to rest up at Chiron’s spa. Take a little hike, getamani/pedi, with your favorite colors! Check out business schools, do some practice interviews. The Traveler might find just the spot to hang their hat for a while.

    Jupiter Super Trine Uranus!!!

    Sep 25 Jupiter in Leo super trine Uranus in Aries! Fire signs HOT! Leo is big, Jupiter is bigger, Uranus is worldwide! Fame for change!! Some children born at this time may be well known, could be super intelligent, exponentially exceeding past generations. These youngsters of the Future, as well as of computers and social networking, will carry the Light! Cutting edge schools may be funded, teachings daringly carried to the most remote areas.

    Leo is solar fire! Uranus is in Aries is sizzling white Lightning electric fire! Leo is the sign or our star, the Sun; Uranus is the heavens! How far can we go?! We may see privatized space ventures take a giant leap! Back here, solar panels and wind machines are on! Electric/solar hybrid vehicles will be more plentiful than ever, and amazingly prices might just come down even as demand goes up.

    Though traveling is likely to flourish remarkably especially air and bike travel, love and friendship will still be the core at heart. Perfect time to go in groups! This trine might even bring some successful innovative heart research to light. Leo and Aries both enjoy athletics, so those who can, may lose some unwanted weight!

    There is an element of separation, letting go, even as unity, harmony is possible. Leo is the sign opposite Aquarius, Uranus’s sign. Leo likes personal and loves being adored; Uranus likes freedom and is easily a loner enjoying their own idiosyncrasies. A certain distance as well as steady recognition of each’s good qualities will go well. Leo and Aquarius are both ‘fixed’ signs. Leo likes its comforts, lazy as big cat at times, loves to be made over and tended tenderly. Aquarius can’t even breathe without the option to be and do as it likes when it likes. Uranus in Aries of independence even more so! You want me to wait on you? Really? Jupiter gets jammed up sometimes with its opinions, and Leo gloriously magnifies those ideas. Ok, better get out the wide angle lens, or your Uranian friend may feel unheard, get really bored and vanish to other realms. Love that Leo best you can, and give each other plenty of room, no demanding, no crowding, no preaching. Ask questions, keep the mind turning, listen with your heart. Share and share your new discoveries together.

    FIERY! Jupiter in LEO, and Uranus in ARIES, fiery signs, will power up the LIGHT! Leo is Heart energy, Uranus electricity turns the Lights ON, and Aries is Spirit, rules the head, where all the controls of perception are – third eye/sight, hearing, tasting, scent, where all the cosmic orders are given to our body, where our animal instincts of the medulla oblongata are! Love and action! Arrow to the mark, make it an Ace, a glorious symphony!

    With the Uranus square Pluto having obliterated a lot of social structure as we have known it, finances, homes, jobs, since 2010, vast openings have been created! This year’s April Cardinal Grand Square crumpled any last resistance for many. We are on Thresholds of deep change. It is fertile time to keep a strong hold on our dreams and visions, to stand for world change with every breath we take.

    How we handle this configuration now, five months before the February 2015 set that immediately precedes the last Uranus square Pluto in March 2015, has a lot to do with the outcomes. It won’t be completely done until the last repeat of the Yod/trine pattern in May and June 2015. At that time the final seeds of the square are disseminated, adjustments made, changes incorporated. Keep the doors open and the Lights on!

Libra.Scorpio Cusp Katie McGrath
Libra/Scorpio Cusp Irish Katie McGrath, Morgana of Merlin fame, has Venus conjunct Mars.

THESE ARE THE LAST DAYS OF MARS IN LIBRA! Your intentions, what you are going to do, and who you want to do it with can be of lifelong importance! Libra can be an astute partner picker when motivated. Take advantage of that!

Mars has been In Libra since Dec 7, 2013! Mars has attempted to balance, equalize, even the playing field. He has fought for rights, cultural integration, beauty. Mars has led, cajoled, grumbled, fought, seduced, threatened, courageously inspired! He invited you to take a first step, but if you didn’t get going quickly, left you in the dust for more return on the effort. Maybe he found someone who got it asap. He might have come back to see if you were ready yet, but maybe not. Your job would have been to catch up! No sleeping dogs!

It’s been a time for vigorous relationships, forays into new business options, restoring balance to your health that you may be a worthy partner! The first relationship is with yourself. Hopefully, you have done your part when you were ready. You sought spirited companions who want what you want, who celebrate you for exactly who you are! Keep doing that! You can’t expect them to be just like you, but you will each give your expertise gloriously independently!

This last Mars retrograde, that seemed to go on forever for some, played its all important part, making the fourth point of the extraordinary Cardinal Grand Square we had April 20 to 23. This was not just any Grand Square, because it was formed by three outer planets, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto! Mars, the LightBearer, The Flame, The Torch, challengingly cross activated the Initiation. Mars naturally rules Aries, the sign opposite Libra. Mars is independent while Libra wants to partner. Many a more daring move was made and still may be!

The core part of the Grand Square, Uranus square Pluto, stays with us continuously through March 2015. As Mars finishes Libra, it will reactivate that square again. The week before June 25, it is opposite Uranus in Aries, Mars’ sign! That will bring back some memories.

Mars/Uranus is a classic ‘What happened?!’ Could be what you did, or what they did, or both. It may be intriguing or downright offensive. Innocence is at stake, or a world weary newcomer is temporarily fascinating, until you get to know them, or they simply wander away before that can ever happen. One way or another, however, they will leave their mark, just like a lightning strike, you are both changed forever, no matter how casual the encounter seemed to be, whether they seemed affected or not. Remember your intentions and stay true to them.

If you have had some sexual matters, they may work out after all. You may have lost a little time on your weight loss/exercise regime. Get back in the game. Getting busy again will take some of the grump out of your day. Stand up, take frequent little walks, shake it loose. Do things in a new way so as not to reinjure yourself. You may be finding it easier to say some things that have been needed to have been said. Practice in your mirror or with a supportive friend. Take a look around your home. Get free! Move the no longer used stuff on out of your life. Check fire safety.

Mars in Libra appreciates support, reassurances in relationships. It considers what’s right and in courage stands up in its alliances. It may be threatened, and have to bide its time to wait for risk to diminish. Time brings more Light to situations and often the truth will come without your doing anything. Perhaps you have had to learn some legal things and find other ways to take care of yourself than you expected. Libra is social, an expert at taking care of each other. There is no sacrifice of the independence Mars enjoys. Libra can see our blind spots, negotiate in our behalf without all the emotions. Libra can bring things to the best justice possible, secure your rights! Working together makes good sense. You will have more independence than ever, well supported, in a good way.

Gemini Twin Mothers and their Babies, 1937

These twin Moms had their babies on the same day in 1937! Gemini connections are precious, and Cancer love and family are what it’s all about!

Right now we are in the Gemini portion of this Retrograde cycle. The entire Retrograde cycle finishes July 16.

Mercury retrograded while just barely into Cancer, at 3 Cancer, back on June 7! We had that sneak preview in Cancer, showing us what we are working toward. June 17 until July 12, Mercury is back in Gemini taking care of unfinished business, but from the Cancerian perspective. Our mind pays more attention to communications matters involving home, family, feminine, investments. Logic and feelings have the opportunity to work together. July 1 Mercury is in Station and turns Direct (forward) at 24 Gemini.

Mercury in Gemini, the Twins, is in one of its own signs! Spirit knows, there are at least two sides to everything, but usually there is an exciting plethora! Intentions, what comes our way and becomes a necessity, or something we want to learn about, may take priority. How you think, your manner of attention, what you see that attracts your passion, matters. You can decide what you prefer to give your precious mind energy to, and keep grooming it, just like returning again and again to an image, a thought, a mantra, in meditation. Though, we have to admit, distraction is fine entertainment, and often leads us to something even more wonderful! What can I say?! I love stepping stones.

Now, while Mercury is Rx in Gemini, June 17 to July 1, is a truly classic Mercury Rx with Mercury being in the sign of paperwork, appointments, communications in general. He said, she said. Confirm appointments; wait to sign papers if possible. Unless you are super experienced, wait on escrows, vehicle purchases, and get the insurances, warranties. Wait on elective surgeries especially if they are Gemini related parts of the body (check with your astrologer). Moving expenses could triple since you might have to move again for some reason. Job changes won’t turn out as expected, could even be for the better, but if your heart is set on what you apply for…. Use this time wisely by reviewing and allowing the changes. Underneath it all, revise and update your communications skills. Invaluable.

Mercury Direct returns into Cancer, the Mother, July 12. The whole cycle finishes July 16. In just those first 4 to 5 days, we more acutely notice our feelings, how we interact verbally with our family, especially brothers and sisters. At home, check the vents, and neighbors may be on our mind more than usual. How we remember important things and how and what we study can make major changes in our lives. Our interactions with supportive women, communication aware of feminine styles can help us bond well and get good business done. Pay attention to every day commodities, supplies, keeps things running smoothly and investments humming. Keeping natural cycles in mind frees us from worry as we anticipate and take advantage of them. Work, rest, pleasure. And just like with Mercury in Gemini, in Cancer, the mind can be groomed to stay steady in emotional situations. It can learn self soothing, comforting, reassuring skills.

Phase 3, July 1 to July 16Mercury is Direct! It goes over the same degrees the third time. Things get sorted out, finessed, come to fruit. For some the Rx may have been a bit of a struggle; for others it will be more than smooth, each change a payoff. Challenge signs with Gemini are Virgo/Pisces and Sagittarius. Plus signs are Libra/Aquarius and fire signs Aries, Leo. Also, it depends on what other aspects and planets are active your chart. Phase 3 is the time to open the doors and windows, let the fresh air sweep clean. Be blessed by the changes, make your adaptations, move the puzzle pieces. Reaffirm your connections; let people know what’s up now that things have changed. Move it forward!

Nancy Reagan, four planets in Cancer, with President Obama

In Reagan Red, Nancy is still powerful at 92! Here, in 2009, Obama signed the “Ronald Reagan Centennial Commission Act” which was intended to honor the former US President Ronald Reagan on his 100th birthday in 2011. Nancy quipped “Oh, you’re a lefty (he’s left handed).” Obama chuckled at the double entendre and replied, “Yes, I’m a lefty.”

I will always have a soft spot for Cancer Nancy Reagan born July 6, 1921. My Venus exactly conjuncts her Sun.

She has four planets in Cancer, Pluto, Mars, Sun, and Mercury, a powerful combination. She was First Lady both as wife of the Governor of California, then the US President. At 92, she still survives her husband. She established the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Center for Public Affairs in his honor! There was scandal when it was discovered she used astrology, but you can guess my thinking, good on her! Turns out Nancy’s Venus trines my Jupiter, a favorable aspect. I admire her efforts through the years to educate people and the ‘Just Say NO’ campaign that hoped to help against drugs. Her Moon is in Leo, a bright sign, and she has lovely Libra rising – loved fashion! She has always been a gracious presence, and stood strong for her husband in a good way. Many thought she really was the one acting as President when he had Alzheimer’s, and it was well known she influenced his decisions before that.

Nancy was adopted. She acted in 11 films, met President Reagan who was then the President of the Screen Actors Guild. Her relationship with him was mutually devoted and romantic. Charlton Heston called it “the greatest love affair in the history of the American Presidency.” She is a breast cancer/mastectomy survivor. She had contentious relationships with her two children, and two stepchildren though admirably they all eventually made peace. Not easy.

She now still lives in the home they retired to, the wealthy East Gate Old Bel Air neighborhood of Bel Air, Los Angeles CA, and campaigns with and for other GOP wives. And, Nancy revealed in an interview with Vanity Fair that Michelle Obama had telephoned her for advice on living and entertaining in the White House.

Cancer, the Hope of New Life

Cancer, Sign of Moms and  Babies, Adorable!

Clever, lovingly sneaky, Mischief and Magic!

Water signs hold particular distinctions. Cancer, the first water sign, is at the very bottom of the natural zodiacal wheel. Motherhood, nurturing, is the reason why we do a lot of things in our lives. Survival is virtually an instinct. Two of the three Air, and Water Signs, Scorpio and Pisces, are what we call ‘above the horizon.’ Symbolically, though these two water signs often prefer privacy and solitude, above the horizon means they are out in the world of people. Scorpio makes relationships for intimacy and is famed for corporate mergers, financial success. Pisces is the Crusader, leading, sacrificing, for beliefs, ideals, helps those who suffer. They are in the world with every fiber of their being. And Pisces, the last water sign, the last sign of the Zodiac, carries the hope of the last chance!

It begins in the Womb, a beautiful rich place. Good foods, exercise, no substances. Live your life as if you were carrying a baby. It’s that Sacred. Tummy rubs, songs and humming, laying down to a peaceful sleep. Birthing sets us free! Baby from Mama, Mama from Baby! We scream, laugh, feel protective, get tired, but mostly LOVE. Our little ones walk, fall, go to school, leave home, fall in love, live as citizens in the world, taking a good part of us with them. Culture, beliefs, dreams, heritage, is once again created, carried forward.

Precious memories, albums, commemorative quilts, family gatherings, pets, the home we lived in, all remind us of what is good in life, what we want for all people. Whether it is the men building the barn, making a cradle for the babies, barbecuing for us at special events, or women sewing, canning the gardens’ surplus, patching up cuts and kissing bruises, nurturing is the gift.

That feminine part of ourselves, is a fierce and gentle place. Everyone’s chart, man or woman, has Cancer somewhere, and the Moon, Cancer’s planet, is in every person’s chart.  We seek shelter, we line it with soft down or leaves or furry animal skins. These days it might be those high count cotton or fuzzy flannel sheets. Snuggling is the word, like puppy piles. We are seductive lovers, hold babies close to our hearts.

Even Cancer businesses are caring, home and family associated. From market investments to your geneology, the family’s antiques, to bed and breakfasts. Cheffing, growing super foods, milk and dairy products, everyday items to specialties. Restaurant ownership, franchises. Schools, care centers of all kinds, child services. Home builders and repair services, especially kitchen related. The clothing that houses your body. Photographers that record our life events, artists that paint the memories.

Cancer carries the weight! They carry the hope of new life, raising the children of the future, of living in plenitude and gratitude. Blessed be.

Happy Birthdays, Adorable Cancers!

Gemini Twin Mothers and their Babies, 1937

These twin Moms had their babies on the same day in 1937! Gemini connections are precious, and Cancer love and family are what it’s all about!

May 23 we start in the first phase of the upcoming Mercury Retrograde. What we do in this fist of the three phases sets the issues of concern throughout. The entire cycle finishes July 16.

Mercury in Gemini, the Twins, is in one of its own signs! Spirit knows, there are at least two sides to everything, but usually there is an exciting plethora! Intentions, what comes our way and becomes a necessity, or something we want to learn about, may take priority. How you think, your manner of attention, what you see that attracts your passion, matters. You can decide what you prefer to give your precious mind energy to, and keep grooming it, just like returning again and again to an image, a thought, a mantra, in meditation. Though, we have to admit, distraction is fine entertainment, and often leads us to something even more wonderful! What can I say?! I love stepping stones.

Mercury in Cancer, the Mother, May 29 notices our feelings, how we interact verbally with our family, especially brothers and sisters. Our home, check the vents, and neighbors may be on our mind more than usual. How we remember important things and how and what we study can make major changes in our lives. Our interactions with supportive women, communication aware of feminine styles can help us bond well and get good business done. Paying attention to every day commodities, supplies, keeps things running smoothly and investments humming. Keeping natural cycles in mind frees us from worry as we anticipate and take advantage of them. Work, rest, pleasure. And just like with Mercury in Gemini, in Cancer, the mind can be groomed to stay steady in emotional situations. It can learn self soothing, comforting, reassuring skills.

Mercury retrogrades while just barely into Cancer, at 3 Cancer June 7! So that’s our time frame for the first phase, May 23 to June 7. May 29 until he retrogrades back into Gemini June 17, Mercury is in Cancer. We have that sneak preview in Cancer, showing us what we are working toward. June 17 until July 12, Mercury is back in Gemini taking care of unfinished business there, but from the Cancerian perspective. Our mind pays more attention to communications matters involving home, family, feminine, investments. Logic and feelings have the opportunity to work together.

Phase 2, June 7 to July 1Mercury is Retrograde. He turns Direct at 24 Gemini. The time Mercury is Rx in Gemini, June 17 to July 1, will be a truly classic Mercury Rx with Mercury being in his own sign of paperwork, appointments, communications in general. He said, she said. Confirm appointments; wait to sign papers if possible. Unless you are super experienced, wait on escrows, vehicle purchases, and get the insurances, warranties. Wait on elective surgeries especially if they are Gemini related parts of the body (check with your astrologer). Moving expenses could triple since you might have to move again for some reason. Job changes won’t turn out as expected, could even be for the better, but if your heart is set on what you apply for…. Use this time wisely by reviewing and allowing the changes. Underneath it all, revise and update your communications skills. Invaluable.

Phase 3, July 1 to July 16Mercury Direct! It goes over the same degrees the third time. Things get sorted out, finessed, come to fruit. For some the Rx may have been a bit of a struggle; for others it will be more than smooth, each change a payoff. Challenge signs with Gemini are Virgo/Pisces and Sagittarius. Plus signs are Libra/Aquarius and fire signs Aries, Leo. Also, it depends on what other aspects and planets are active your chart. But now, is the time to open the doors and windows, let the fresh air sweep clean. Be blessed by the changes, make your adaptations, move the puzzle pieces. Reaffirm your connections; let people know what’s up now. Move it forward!
