USA Aug 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse Map!

The purple marker is the point of greatest duration at Carbondale Il, Giant City State Park, 2 minutes, 40.2 seconds! Just a few miles south, holds the distinction of crossing the 2024 eclipse path, making it a unique location for being able to perform observations of both eclipses from the same location! The green marker is the point of the greatest eclipse, in western Kentucky, not far from Hopkinsville. Some of you haven’t heard of this yet, others are all over it, have had your reservations for years in advance!!! Make your viewing plans and reservations ASAP!

Get your eclipse glasses! Party!

First total solar eclipse in the continental U.S. in 38 years Aug 21!

The moon completely blocks the Sun, revealing the Sun’s beautiful outer atmosphere known as the corona. This is a rare, once-in-a-lifetime event for viewers in the United States; people will be coming from all over the world! The last total solar eclipse visible in the continental United States occurred in 1979, 26 years ago, and the next one will not take place until 2024. The path of totality will begin in the Pacific Ocean and travel through the center of the United States. The total eclipse will be visible in parts of Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina before ending in the Atlantic Ocean. A partial eclipse will be visible in most of North America and parts of northern South America.

Cardinal Grand Square – Mercury to Uranus/Pluto/Saturn with Mars Square Neptune!

Father’s Day this year will really be a 4 day affair, the 17th through the 21st, with emphasis on communication!  Mercury in Cancer will make three challenging aspects over those days.  It starts with a shake up, open-the-gates square to Uranus in Aries, midday the 18th.  That’s a mind changer, free-thinker, alone or together, wants different, I’ll tell you one better than that!  It is concerned about the monies of a career or business.  Caution on contracts with friends.

Midday Father’s Day, June 19, Mercury opposes Pluto in Capricorn.  Intimacy, sharing of secrets, could be unsettling, bring a surprise closeness, revelations about parents’ relationships or mates, even friends.  Money matters.   Loans, grants, funding may seem out of reach, yet, the connection is there to follow.  The past is the past.  Let it go if it makes sense.  Forgiving doesn’t mean you have to forget or leave yourself unguarded.  Do be careful with what you say and in front of whom.  When in doubt, don’t, is a good way not to get into something you never meant to happen.  Sometimes repairs, amends, are possible, other times, not.  Be very gentle.

Midday June 21, Summer Solstice, Mercury squares Saturn in Libra.  This finishes the set.  Now there have been a few days to mull things over, this aspect becomes important because Saturn rules Fathers!!!  Mercury wants to talk.  Will that be ok?  Are all parties ready?  This calls for respect in every direction.  Brittle and rigid don’t work well.  Panic defenses need to be set aside.  Deep breath.  Keep the installments short with plenty of time outs.  Make a commitment to  carry on in a short time after the adrenaline has settled.  Don’t let fears amplify while you keep someone waiting.

Some very beautiful progress can be made here, unraveling long-standing issues.  What’s most at stake is the way you all talk about things.  Respect, open heartedness.  Bumbles will be made.  We are all learning.  Parents too.

All these days, Mars in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces, also exact on Summer Solstice!  Mars is the Aries planet of war, but also inspiration and leadership.  Neptune is the God of the Sea, from rock-me-in-the-cradle waves to tsunamis!  Push kindly for what you want, don’t swamp the ship!

See June 18 to 21 below for more perspective about this aspect set.

Please do have a most precious Father’s Day!  I would love to hear your stories how this unfolded for you and your loved ones!

Wishing you a Magical Yule, Winter Solstice!

Magic is afoot!  This Winter Solstice moment, 3:39 PM Pacific, is preceded by the Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon at 0:13 AM! 

TOTAL Lunar Eclipse VISIBLE just after midnight on the US westcoast – are you going to stay up to see it and wish the new year in?!  Many Earth Religion peoples will be doing just that!  Rain is forecast for some areas, but celebrate as you will – meditation, hot chocolate and a fire….  The Eclipse will be at 29 Gemini 21 with the Sun opposite in Sagittarius, an axis of mind and purpose.  How we think, what we think, what we pay attention to, how we gather information, how we express it, all affect outcome!  How we are able to learn limits or expands our range of effectiveness and sharing with others.  Without enough information and exchange of ideas, right on down the line, everyone loses.  If our attention wanders, we lose connection.  People feel that loss and wonder about your or their self esteem.  Our style of idea gathering taints or tantalizes, making people not or want to share with us again.  Our sharing style chokes the network, or invites joy and excitement of exchange!  You see?  And this is only the Gemini side of the Eclipse!

Sagittarius needs to know, so much, to have a fully informed, broad perspective, to choose the Living Truth, that changes as we grow!  Faith can be a fickle feature, because she too is a living thing!  Faith doesn’t just happen.  Faith is experienced, a product of a history of good choices, some your own, some of the people you trust.  Good choices may not make you wealthy, but they are true to you and your heart and Soul.  How you stand with you matters.  Without all the information, one makes choices that are short of the mark, never quite satisfying because something always feels awry, can’t quite put your finger on it.  So put those Geminis, or the Gemini part of yourself, to work.  Listen to them intently, help them focus where you need the info.  If it doesn’t feel like you have enough yet to make your decisions, send them out to bird dog more!  Then make wise choices for the Path you are traveling, the message you choose to publish.  Be continually wise, change when the input changes.  Expansion and growth are a powerful postures of a fully living Sagittarian!  It seems like luck, but forever the scanning observer in their far reaching adventures, it’s their kind of brilliance that saves them!

Yule, Winter Solstice is a grand time to snuggle, but keep your eyes wide open for the possibilities that grow from the root dark in Winter’s Night.  Many a profound insight springs from the eternal internal, a mere candle flicker only glimpsed, sometimes during a whimper.  We might be sad, we might feel like steel, but it comes.  The underworld has always been well respected, often feared, a testing place of Spirit, yet we come back more powerful, even if only quietly.  Power may be barking or whispering, yet it works.  This year, as since 2008, Pluto is near the 0 Capricorn Winter Solstice degree.  Pluto is the God of the Underworld, so this life and death, sharing and healing planet makes it all the more meaningful.  As many are suffering from financial losses, a time of sharing and creative healing springs, as the serpents on the Physician’s staff of Life, raising the Phoenix from its own ashes!   The Sun is always there, it’s just short days.  It may seem thinner, the light laid low across our skies, but still, it is there.  Never been anything wrong with slowing down, resting, noticing more of what is between the molecules.

The last degrees of a sign are always endings and beginnings.  The Eclipse is at 29 degrees, the last, and Solstice is 0 degrees, the first.  May your endings end well and beginnings be even better!  I wish you peaceful days.  I pray you take time to tell your love, appreciate the special in others, what’s good in you.  Happy Yule, Winter Solstice – Mama Earth’s New Year, and Eclipse!

Winter Solstice Day, Dec 21, I will post an overview of 2011!  There is much to come!

Sneak Preview! On April 29th through May 1st, 2011, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Uranus, 6 planets, will all be ON FIRE in Aries!  Unbelievable passion, magic of Spirit!  Your Mother is impatient, your pen is pissed and potent, your Lover is sweet HOT, careful not to run the red light, exercise is a no-brainer, the mighty Truth stands on its hind legs and bites, change is electrifying and defying, a challenge to be alone together!!!!
