New Moon Solar Eclipse!  Five Planets in Pisces, Three in Aries!

Sunday February 26 ANNULAR SOLAR ECLIPSE! 6:58 AM Pacific at 8 Pisces 12!

Pisces Annular Solar Eclipse!

Though we North Americans won’t see it, it’s gonna be a beauty! In Pacific zone we will simply have a sunrise as usual, not ‘seeing’ the Moon since she has her dark side to us. More at Sky & Telescope

Pisces brings us a profound New Moon Solar Eclipse! There are 5 planets, a stellium, in Pisces – Mercury, Moon, Sun, Neptune and Chiron! Pisces can see the sorrows, what needs healing that the Soul requires. There is the deepest compassion that music is born from. Magnificent performances, art, touch our hearts, we want to help. Magic and miracles happen, meditation unveils the mysteries. Dreams beget stirring insights, reawaken hopes. Solitude allows a rest to the depth of peace. Dancing moves our feet, we join our talents in new directions with kindred beings. We heal our selves and save others at the same time.

Mercury rules two signs, Gemini and Virgo, both logical. In Pisces they merge, logic and intuition. Mercury takes notes, gives words to previously unnamed perceptions, misunderstood precepts. There may have been caring that was never spoken. Now a door is open.

Mercury is very close to the South Node of the Moon, thought to be a point of our past lives where we overdid it. Mercury, ruler of the sign the North Node, Virgo, is very fitting here since there are deep matters to be thought of and spoken about, reorganized, rebalanced, applied to the services we aspire to perform. Mercury names the old nemesis out loud, and by so doing, a lot of fears are instantly dispelled, secrets of failure released! Mercury likes to play with thinking, enjoys a kaleidoscope of possibilities, is not generally seduced by myth. They can blend old talents with our current potential that we have grown to be able to do!

SOLAR ECLIPSE! Moon can be ever so gentle in lending her support to Father Sun. He shines, but she enhances his power of seeing where to direct his energy. His focus increases to the deepest fathoms, putting light in abandoned places not used to being looked at. Now that we see what the trouble is, we have a chance at resurrection. In quiet time together he tells her his doubts, she loves him no matter what. He is restored, his heart swells. Nurture your Self this tenderly. An Eclipse is a direct lineup, the energy transmitted precisely!

They are with Neptune, Pisces’ own planet! Blind or visionary, both are ways of seeing. Close your eyes, see within. Hear the sounds of your own breath, your heart beat, the blood moving through your veins. Know that you are a supreme crucial part of divine being of all Souls. We are One. Forgiveness and blessing always. Our exquisite sensitivity impels us, we know what we need to do. There is natural gravitation, a remembrance, activation of the sacred wellspring within us.

Venus is slowing to retrograde March 4. She semi-sextiled Neptune Feb 22 for the first time. She makes beauty, which Neptune appreciates for he makes beauty so many ways, from the ocean, its creatures and plants, to the Soul, Spirit. Venus in Aries calls for a living active livening beauty, to live for it! Venus calls for love and affection, kindliness. Neptune responds because he is the planet of compassion. While Pisces is more all encompassing, Venus is right here, on the spot right now! She reminds the old Master of current predicaments and how inspiring the challenge can be, needs his council by her side.

In this chart, Chiron leads the way. In Pisces it is the Soul healer. We are called to move through our wounds, and through that healing, teach others by our experiences. Each relationship has meaning, disappointments and blessings. Each comes when we are ready for the next level. We see from different vantage points, a wholeness becoming. In turn, all the skills we gain bring us to more satisfying life work, giving our best to companies and causes, true contribution.

In addition to Pisces, the last sign, there are 3 planets in the first sign Aries – Venus, Mars in his own sign, and Uranus! Venus in Aries loves a good fair fight, is competitive, adores challenges, and can be sweet about it, but stay nimble, she’s quick! Mars is passionate about causes, independence, heroic rescues, doesn’t wait! And he is within a few minutes of his companion in Spirit, Uranus, the futurist who prefers freedom! Though each often work alone, if they gather the troops, no telling what can get done, faster than the blink of an eye! These three are winners!

Mars conjuncts Uranus 4:17 PM Pacific! In old fashioned practical terms we warn to have caution with this aspect! Especially with Mars opposite Jupiter 6:24 AM Pacific the next morning! Mars is impetuous, rebellious, easily provoked, sometimes over assertive, arguments can ensue, accidents can happen. Uranus is famous for sudden events! While Mars is runners, bikes, vehicles, Uranus is planes, electronics. If you don’t feel like getting on the flight, don’t. Uranus is at times absent minded since they are great thinkers. Keep track of your friend. Jupiter in Libra is so social and not wanting to hurt your feelings that they may get in over their head. Or they are opinionated, overconfident, so trusting, telling such a great story, that they miss the signals. And, with all that PIsces, there can be a lack of focus or attention. So don’t get lost, and please don’t stand with your back to the curb, get help if you need it!

Barring the accidental possibilities, Mars and Uranus are opposite Jupiter retrograde in Libra. Mars and Uranus in Aries are fast as lightning! They aren’t waiting around for civility or amenities! But Jupiter has their attention and makes such good Libra connections, they would like to meet those people too! Jupiter is excited to see such an unusual combination, and realizes that sometimes you just have to call it what it is and keep on moving to levels where more can get done without constraints. There is a balance being sought by Libra, well traveled Jupiter wants a generous perspective. The nature of oppositions has a Libra scent, planets wide apart yet bringing good things to the negotiating table. Just remember, these are intelligent planets and signs, so get to it promptly and don’t miss the window!

Though retrograding away, Jupiter is still close in the sextile with Saturn in Sagittarius, many thresholds. Jupiter has been consulting with Saturn the Builder. Jupiter has grand ideas and Saturn is good at grounding the planning in a timely fashion. If school comes first, or learning certain skills is required, then that’s first or alongside the early parts of the project. Jupiter is going away to think on his own, without Saturn’s censorship and to learn more from others. But Saturn’s practical advice is well kept in Jupiter’s thoughts. Saturn awaits his return, building in preparation because he knows the good things that can happen and wants to be ready. They rejoin closely July 29, become exact Aug 27.

Saturn holds the degree of the GALACTIC CENTER, transmitting from 26 Sagittarius! It holds this degree from Feb 18, the day the Sun enters Pisces, to March 6. Jupiter opposite Uranus is within that time, on March 2! The GC is considered to be a profound point, the hub of our galaxy that connects with other galaxies! The Galactic Center is considered a Galaxy Gateway, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Keep an open mind!

The upcoming outer planet Jupiter retrograde opposition Uranus March 2 is the backdrop aspect of the entire chart. This Eclipse, New Moon, is the preparation for the opposition of these two amazing planets! Jupiter is the old Fame and Fortune Planet, abundance, expansion, teaching and travel. Uranus represents awakening, evolution itself, the genius of group action, the Internet, outer space, flight and friendship! Opposite signs represent bridges, collaborations of offerings, exchanges. Make it so.

Keep learning and serving, stay true and steady in the Light!

Full Worm Moon!

Four Planets in Pisces! T Square; Sun/Moon with Jupiter Opposition Uranus!

Sunday March 12, 7:54 AM Pacific at 22 Virgo 13

Pisces Full Moonrise Towers Beach June 23, 2018 by Kyle Grantham

Full Moonrise at Towers Beach at Delaware Seashore State Park on Sunday evening, June 23, 2013 by super photographer Kyle Grantham of Wilmington, Del.

Four planets Pisces!

Neptune remains as spiritual placeholder, marker, but he isn’t standing still exactly either! Venus in next sign Aries is enticing him forward, showing him how sweet it can be, that new ideas really are worth it! The Old Man of the Sea is inspired and he has the wisdom needed to support the adventure! Venus is now retrograde at 11 Aries semi sextile Neptune. Venus crossed that position Feb 22, retrograded across it YESTERDAY, Mar 11 at 5:53 AM Pacific! The third passage is May 19 at 14 Pisces.

Mercury in Pisces was with Chiron March 10. He gathered some magical wisdom from teacher Chiron; Chiron got some up to date information! Sun is now closely with Chiron, exact March 14. Sun lights the way, shimmering through the mists of time, warming the morning, waking us from slumbers of the Soul. He gives us courage to try out our dreams, carry the healing forward. Chiron offers insights about relationships, the businesses we do together that sustain us in our daily lives. Sun enlightens us to choose from the heart, be dedicated in Spirit to the Light of Life.

Virgo Moon is listening and watching keenly since nursing, tending and accounting are her talents. She observes Chiron’s transmission, Mercury’s (her planet) reception into the data banks, Sun’s guiding to where the light is brightest! Sun may be very gentle in Pisces and seeing that, Virgo is shown how to be critical, but with a kindness she may not have ever known herself. She too is lighted and grateful. She can take all that in, organize, find a system of expressing it so every one of us can be uplifted.

Just preceding the Full Moon, Sun inconjuncted Jupiter the 11th, 6:18 AM Pacific Full Moon morning, Moon semi-sextiled Jupiter. They consulted the cosmic planner, adjusted some links and spread some information to the side. They got more up to date, sorted out some impressions, were reminded of their long term goals, were able to let go of some imaginary blocks to their progress. Greased the wheels.

22 Degrees! The Full Moon’s closest aspects are with Uranus in Aries! Opposite Uranus, Jupiter in Libra is gifted with establishing fortunate relationships! Uranus in Aries lights the fires! Many relationships may be formed quickly and put into action practically simultaneously! The Sun semi-sextiles Uranus. They rule opposite signs Leo and Aquarius, but semi-sextiles are neighbors! They know each other, have spent time together. Sun is the One! Uranus is One to Many! Friends, community organizations, international networks! One Pisces person can inspire a revolution, call a Uranian to invent a miraculous device or a cure! We are not alone. The Moon in Virgo inconjunct Uranus organizes every last bit. That’s what computers are for! We have instant response time for disasters, cleanups, animal care, human healing. And Virgo reminds us to stay organic, use the simplest wild herbal when possible.

T Square! Both Moon and Sun will square Saturn at 27 Sagittarius. Moon squares 5:25 PM Pacific. Sun squares Saturn March 17. Saturn can hold things in abeyance, make you tired, delay the inevitable! Staying calm and realistic can be well worth the wait. It gives a timeout to consider more relevant priorities, to build more solidly. It may appear that promises are broken by fear, disappointment again. But if it isn’t truly a fit, in time that becomes clear. It is a great relief to be saved from ourselves! Rebuild from a strong stable center.

Moon square Saturn is also like an opposition since Moon rules Cancer, the sign opposite Capricorn, Saturn’s sign! Moon is nurturing, Saturn is brusque at times, quite hard working to make the deadlines. But he does provide for the family. Cancer warms the hearth; Saturn provides the shelter. Mom and Dad. Saturn at times gets rigid in his systems, is afraid there isn’t time. Moon needs to be clever to catch him in quick moments of between times. She needs to keep if brief and be to the point. Why is what she is suggesting a good thing? She needs to be careful it doesn’t sound like a criticism (in Virgo) but an opportunity! She needs to admire cleanly, no manipulation. Saturn can have opinions in Sag, but there needs to be room for opportunity, expansion, the ability to reset time and priorities! Good business! There may be grief that needs sensitive comforting.

Sun square Saturn Letting go of ego confrontations, making choices for the long term, keeping the goal in mind, are so more satisfying than a short term enchantment. Being told what to do, being intimidated, held back, is not honoring. Bring yourself up to your true level with people who delight in your contributions! Sun, especially in Pisces, can seem wooly minded, and mystical may not get the job done, at times not to be trusted. But good hearted can go a long way. There is a knowing care is there, in fact brightens Saturn’s day though he might not admit it at first. Saturn may find his more cold rough edges melt a bit. He more kindly says here’s what I need, can you do it? Sun says let’s go away for the weekend and think about it. Could work.

Mercury was just starting Pisces at our New Moon, now it is just about to leave. It’s finishing up the last bits of the subtle Pisces maze, connecting the dots, making a safety net, preparing for it’s passage through Aries! It has just squared Saturn 5:10 AM Pacific.

Upcoming Jupiter Square Pluto

At the Feb 26 New Moon Eclipse, Jupiter retrograde opposite Uranus was the upcoming major planet aspect. It has been like an explosion! Now it is the second Jupiter square Pluto in Capricorn March 30 taking precedence. Right now they are only 2 degrees apart and closing. There may be a calming, but powerful conditions prevail. It’s a time to keep watch for secret agendas and alliances, rights forfeited for lack of resistance, lack of attention, apathy, disbelief that could happen.

After the Oct 30 Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, this was THE Powerful Aspect at Election time! It became the 1st exact aspect after the Nov 8 Presidential Election! There will be three. March 30, 2017 is the second, Aug 4, 2017 the third. Donald J Trump, has been elected. 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.

Relationships, cultural matters – immigrants, financial and health resources, environmental and animal welfare are undergoing dramatic changes. Truth, opinions, are running the gamut. The tables have turned and the Old Guard is protecting its own. Libra calls for negotiation, getting to know the other better. Jupiter calls for education, yet in simpler ways, using examples of daily living, metaphors ~ a way of describing something by equating it with something else.

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. Challenging time for education, may need to be done anyway. Mind your kidneys/sugar, bones, teeth and skin.

Full Moons are so elegant when they rise and light the night sky! This Virgo – Pisces axis celebrates signs who live lives of service and caring. They both make beauty – Virgo crafts, Pisces art and music. The ultimate goal might be heaven on earth – Virgo healing the sick, singing while we work, a lovely garden; Pisces oceanic tides of cleansing our Spirits, visionary inspiration.

Blessed be and thank you.

New Moon, Annular Solar Eclipse, aka Ring of Fire!  – Jupiter Virgo/Libra, Saturn T Square, Three Eclipses!

Thursday September 1, 2:03 AM Pacific at 9 Virgo 21, visible in Africa

New Moon Annular Solar Eclipse Ring of Fire Africa Giraffe Sep 1 2016

It’s fall Eclipse Season! New Moon eclipses are Sun and Moon together, Moon backlighted by Sun! This will be a beautiful annular eclipse, ‘…well-placed observers in Mozambique get to see the Moon’s disk completely silhouetted by sunlight for 186 seconds!’ Webcam time for those of us not in Africa.

Both Virgo time Eclipses frame Jupiter’s sign change from Virgo to Libra Sep 9, the only sign change of 2016! With sign changes, there is the finishing, graduation of one sign, a foundation built for the next sign, the new beginning. With New Moons there is the ending/finishing of the lunar cycle, founding the newly beginning next cycle, another rite of passage. This last lunar event while Jupiter is still in Virgo, collects, charges our energy to complete Jupiter’s intention and good works in Virgo. We are grounding and anchoring the foundation for Jupiter’s new beginning, bringing powerful Virgo skills to the table for partnering in Libra. There is a note of Purity with both Sun and Moon in Virgo. Moon is potently charged with Sun’s Virgo Light. Moon, so closer to Earth and us, transmorphs this energy to us using her full nurturing powers to hold it, love it, grow it, teach it, keep it safe until it can stand on its own. Moon makes us feel it, not just define and categorize, but to sincerely tap it to serve and do our best, keep it’s integrity in a loving way.

Saturn in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces’s finishing aspect is Sep 10 at 20 Sag, the day after Jupiter enters Libra! It is a background aspect that has been running since Dec 23, 2014. In 2016, it ran from April 13, continues through Oct 31. It has brought its share of sorrows and broken dreams as well as letting go of things no longer needed in our lives. Many are starting all over again, humbly, wiser, lighter, cleaner. Saturn is the Builder, often surviving and persevering beyond the odds. Neptune’s fears are overcome, dreams may be wakened from their sleep even long after hope has been lost. Never give up!

The New Moon Eclipse is one degree making this Square come alive, making it what we astrologers call a T Square! There will be no forgetting or ignoring! See the red lines in the chart forming the triangle? Saturn is at the point, so it is in the proactive position and like an antenna scanning! It is sensitive to requested responsibilities, though it’s thoughtful whether it wants to take on more or pass it to someone else. It is aware of the details from Virgo being pressed upon it that will make the project more costly but likely worth it. With FOUR planets in Virgo likely some ideas are going to get through, though temporarily others will come to an abrupt halt! No amount of begging to be heard will work. Wait and try again later. Neptune is saying it’s not ALL about money, make it magical too! Saturn knows time is of the essence and neglect of key points can’t happen, so is letting people know what is needed and by when! Getting just the right balance of factors is going to be a challenge, but moving the puzzle pieces will reveal the right fit. Guard against overwork; get rest and light exercise.

Moon and Sun also square Mars that has just passed Saturn. There have been and will be kinks in the conduit! Here are the sequences in the T Square. Expect delays as Moon squares Saturn at 3:25 AM Pacific. While many are sleeping, early risers on the eastern seaboard might be late to work. Opposite Neptune 4:33 AM Pacific, they can’t find the coffee, the kids might get lost in a fog. Square Mars 11:39 AM Pacific tempers might be short, there is little time, could overdo exercise, sex wasn’t worth it. Sun squares Saturn 8:22 PM Pacific. Hasn’t been fun for a good 3 – 5 days. Blamed, shamed, bullied and bummed. Too much to do, too little time. Next it is opposite Neptune 9:38 AM Pacific on Sep 2. Who am I? Should I give up or go for it? Why me? Sun travels closely in square with Mars until the exact aspect the 13th, after Jupiter enters Libra, after Saturn squares Neptune. Frustration has been building; Libra may help resolve differences and unfairness. There may be challenges and faceoffs taken personally. Saturn may break patterns of denial, forgiveness and understanding on both parts, and of yourself, may save the day. If necessary, walk away. Wait for things to settle. If several other factors are lucky in your chart is could be an unexpectedly very productive time!

Moon and Sun are trine, flowing with Pluto in Capricorn. Besides the potential of deep personal change and empowering your relationships, depending on your chart, positive action can bring amazing weath! Moon makes the trine 12:59 PM Pacific the same day. Sun makes the trine Sep 6 at 10:17 PM Pacific. Stop to take time to tune in on Eclipse day, at the time of the eclipse if possible, 2:03 AM Pacific, and at the Moon’s trine. See if you feel it’s your time and what to do about it, what your next step is. Do some consulting, or follow your intuition through the 6th, even the 7th. Don’t invest your life savings, test with a sum you feel comfortable with. You can always add more later. See a couple astrologers. These dates are in the last days of Jupiter in Virgo, so best choices will have a Virgo flavor. Services, animal and health industries, earth industries, investments. Another strategy would be to pre invest in Jupiter Libra businesses before prices go up or start or get jobs in Libra businesses. Travel, social, anthropology, intercultural exchange, imports, rights, law, politics. Soon as Jupiter goes into Libra some of those businesses will noticeably increase in value. Be ready to flow with the sign changes. Jupiter goes into Scorpio Oct 10, 2017.

There will be not one, but three eclipses three days in a row! First is our SOLAR ECLIPSE New Moon. Then there are two mini eclipses, also called, occultations. The day after the Solar Eclipse, Moon conjuncts Mercury Retrograde 3 PM and occults Jupiter 13 minutes later at 3:13 PM Pacific, Mercury conjuncts  All at 28 Virgo! Moon occults Venus 12 hours later on Saturday 4:03 AM Pacific at 5 Libra! Very good chance one of these three eclipses activates your chart! With all Mini Moon eclipses, the planets are lined up in a straight shot! They are not just passing by each other, but are also at the same elevation! Moon is amplifier, translator, blends with the energy of the further planet.

  • Conjunct, with Mercury of conscious intelligence, Moon in Virgo, one of Mercury’s signs, is in happy accord. Ideas become not just logical, but felt. Their worth and value become a part of us at a more instinctive, personal and primordial level.
  • Moon amplifies Jupiter while Jupiter is in its last 7 days in Virgo. It amplifies Jupiter’s mature accumulated vital information, the summary version of what Jupiter has been transmitting this last year. Specially tune in for important knowledge. Jupiter is always planning ahead, looking to the future, adjusting where and how to get there. Moon is feminine and balances Jupiter’s gusto with the daily possibilities that can realistically be accomplished. Moon softens the logic to a nurturing ambience – less demands, more working together as a human family.
  • Mercury Retrograde with Jupiter can be endlessly chatty reconsidering the past few days since they were together before on Aug 22. What brainstorming! They have been a close 3 degrees and less since Aug 17. Since Aug 26 they will holding Mercury’s 8 day Station together until Sep 2, the day after our Eclipse! Stations are a time of intense focus, concentration, potent absorption, instilling important anchor points. Mercury Rx conjuncts Jupiter the second time Sep 2 at 10:18 AM Pacific! Gleaning the best ideas will be super rewarding! Mercury gathers the data, sees the purpose, given the big picture, plants the idea seeds in all the right places! If you are a writer, reserve as many of these days as possible to write, write, write! What stories, what how tos! FUN and funny to boot!
    Venus conjuncts Jupiter Aug 27
    , Mercury conjuncts Venus Aug 28, Venus leaves Virgo and enters one of its own signs, Libra, Aug 29. Mercury retrogrades Aug 30. Mercury conjuncts Jupiter Sep 2 after the Sep 1 Eclipse. Moon occults Jupiter the same day, and Venus the next! What an intricate sequence! Venus leaves Mercury and Jupiter behind, so it is up to Mercury and Jupiter to get the word together while Venus paves the way for the social connections that will be interested in what Mercury and Jupiter have to offer. All this before Jupiter enters Libra too! Preparation is crucial. Truth, love and beauty, long term plans are under consideration. The primary dance is with Jupiter. Plans need revamping. What is on your mind is reconsidered from many vantage points and deepened in context of the New Moon Eclipse.
  • As Jupiter changes from Virgo to Libra, so do Venus and the Moon! Venus made the switch Aug 29, the Moon does following the Eclipse, preparing the way! When Moon leaves Virgo, she occults Venus in LIBRA, one of Venus’ signs. They carry information into the sign Jupiter will enter Sep 9, now only six days away! Moon and Venus are feminine beauty, Moon adding her mothering qualities to Venus beauty! Venus is our values, things we want, relationships we cherish or wish for, monies we need for our services, laws and politics. Jupiter has given them greater meaning yet, more perspective. Moon reminds us of our parental and cultural context, women’s roles. It all calls for a balancing of what we can do, how to serve justice, be fair and respectful, put ourselves in the other’s place as equal beings.

This complex sequence involves six planets. Sun, Moon, Neptune, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus. Let Love and Beauty reign!

Both Virgo time Eclipses are during Mercury Retrograde! Revisions in our thinking and actions aren’t always wanted or comfortable, but they do take us up, or down like switchbacks on a mountain road. Sometimes we can see down where we have been and wondered how we ever made it. Other times we look up from below and are exultant to reach the top. Other times we meander along and enjoy sights from different perspectives, opening our minds. Jupiter, the most important planet at this time, loves a great road trip and Jupiter is considered to be lucky in the sign it is in! While still in Virgo there will be worthwhile finishing touches. Make it so!

Full Harvest Moon, Penumbral Lunar Eclipse! Mars T Square the Eclipse and Bow with Venus & Uranus!

Friday September 16, 12:05 PM Pacific at 24 Pisces 20 – Not visible in North America

Full Harvest Moon Lunar Eclipse Mars Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco CA Sep 16 2016
Lunar Eclipse and the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco CA on April 4, 2014 by Michael Maloney

This is the last eclipse of 2016, the first eclipse of Jupiter in Libra! Just a week ago, Jupiter entered Libra Sep 9; Saturn made its last square to Neptune Sep 10. Since Saturn was at Station (standing still at its turning point, forward out of Retrograde), it is still less than a degree in the square, will be slowly moving forward away from the sadnesses and losses it brought to so many. There is a considerable shift in attention as Jupiter endorses Libra, the focus now on how to share the offerings of your talents, developed in Virgo, into meaningful relationships, both business and pleasure! October 23 starts a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that will be the primary aspects of 2017! Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. This eclipse is acting as a bridge between what was and will be. Libra is a sign of bridges and axes, so get social, balance up! Mercury is still RETROGRADE until Sep 21. Don’t expect things to be stable, rather embrace creative solutions at a deeper level than expected! Bring offerings and give gratitude!

Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Diagram AstronomyPenumbral Eclipses translate energy of the Sun though Earth as the Medium, to Moon in Shadow.
Moon is shrouded then significantly dimmed, then emerges back though the shadow cape back to as we see her as usual. Though we in North America won’t see it at home, it still happens. If you want to visually follow it, find a good webcam site. If you want to meditate, be Sun, be Earth, feel what Moon receives. As Moon, send your filtered energy with Earth’s gratitude, prayers for all Beings, human, animal, Tree and Stone people and as you are guided.

Full Moons span the heavens from opposite vantage points gifting us with perspective. Virgo the tech helps make Pisces dreams come true. Pisces soothes Virgo, intuitively blessing us with nonlinear insights. Virgo and Pisces are strongly represented with a T Square to Mars that will make it more lively!

  • Virgo has Sun, our identity as one who serves as only you can, like no other.
  • Mercury in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn is an important part of this Eclipse! It is so close, just over a degree now, retrograding back to make the trine on the 20th, turns direct/forward the 21st, Sun goes into Libra the 22nd, Mercury trines Pluto the third and last time the 23rd! This is all during Mercury’s 8 day Station (standing still when it turns directions), an 8 day period Sep 18 to 25. Stations are an intense time of absorption and consolidation. You practically become one with the information instilled. Mercury is sorting back to clean up any snafus, obstructions. It wants the right clean information so it can apply the healing that makes the difference. Pluto knows about detoxing, deathbeds, and miraculous recoveries. This is a good time for them to collaborate.Mercury is close with the North Node, taking on things it thought it couldn’t do, and feels a little out of its league, but heady to be there! He’s taking notes right and left, some of it to be stored and restored, lost bits recovered, protected to be understood in time. Hopefully it will all come together when Mercury goes direct/forward! Health may be under consideration, job, pets, specialty training.
  • Pisces has Neptune, it’s own planet, at the South Node, things of the past. Could be yesterday or a few lifetimes ago. Some needs letting go, some a more current assimilation, other must never be forgotten, but honored, even kept sacred. Perhaps it’s time to realize what we let go long ago and fulfill that dream now! Moon has just connected with Chiron, close kin. They both serve as teachers and healers. They commiserated, shared insights, congratulated each other and are encouraged to continue their works.
  • Mars rides in, laughs in Sagittarius, cracks the whip and says enough! Either run away with me or back to work! He quickly sums up what it all means, makes a plan, and assigns duties! No fears, if you make a mistake we’ll fix it! Need help? We’ll get it for you. Chuck the compulsive details, we’ll get there just fine. Oh, and there’s a party Friday, I expect you ALL to come! Dress comfy, we’ll quit a bit early!Try not to get in a mess. Mars can be impatient and that flusters and irritates Virgo. In Sagittarius there is volume, and Virgo cringes while Pisces may be swept with it or simply evaporates when there is too much stress. Then everyone is off and nothing gets done or at least not well done. Take it easy. Reassure Mars he’s Number 1, listen best you can, show your good faith. Restore Virgo’s serenity with some softer music, or move them out of the line of fire! You may have to court Pisces to come out of the zone they went to, like the beach, LOL, or the headphones. Get back on track.

Venus, Mars, Uranus Bow Pattern! Venus is coming along to dance with Mars, and she knows the steps in Libra – ballroom and ballet are favorites! Mars in Sag is not necessarily noted for finesse, too blunt, moments of inappropriate truth, running off, and she may have some teaching to do. But she’s sweet & suave, and coos, and he feels worthy and does his best to please her. He may have a few surprises to share, like maybe he likes some lively ethnic or square dancing, and she loves him flinging her about held strongly in his arms, heart pounding and in that great billowy skirt! What a grand romantic moonlight horseback ride, and loved meeting those people from far, far away. Together they can charm the socks off the whole team!

But the one that surprises both of them is Uranus! He is opposite Venus enticing her to cut loose! He is in Aries, Mars’ sign, so he and Mars together are waking up hundreds and thousands to new ways of doing things right before our very eyes! Some are becoming amazingly more independent. Some are joining forces and formidably challenging old ways and offering credible solutions! Exciting and creative times. Venus is an outstanding broker and intermediary!

Parallel inconjuncts again! [The two purple lines] Parallel and equidistant patterns have their own peculiar potency. Last month’s Leo/Aquarius Full Grain Moon had Mercury/Jupiter inconjunct Moon and Sun inconjunct Chiron. Our Harvest Moon Penumbral Lunar Eclipse has Sun inconjunct Uranus and Moon leaving inconjunct Venus! Last month they were 24 and 25 degrees, this time they are 21 to 24 degrees, 24, the degree Chiron was at, being the link between both Full Moons.

  • Sun and Uranus rule opposite signs Leo/Aquarius. It’s important how we make adjustments about being an individual among our fellows. Some things must be free to be done alone and others can’t be done alone, prosper from sharing and union. Virgo to Aries is unstable, but full of ideas and excellent intentions.
  • Moon and Venus are both feminine, adapting nurturing and loving grace into our daily affairs. Moon fills your bowl and Venus blesses your way in appreciation. She’s potent in one of her own signs, and Jupiter, now in Libra too, is giving his prosperity to partnerships. Faith and equality, balance and justice for the greater good. Libra to Pisces is so different. Libra is social, loves classical music and symphony while Pisces loves quiet time or a full on concert roaring to the rafters! But Libra can whip up an amazing poster and Pisces loves art too, right from the Soul!

In several ways, this eclipse is acting as a bridge between what was and will be. Together we can make it strong and good.

Eclipse Annular 'Ring of Fire' New Moon

Sunday Nov 3, 4:50 AM Pacific, NEW Moon, Rare Hybrid Eclipse at 11 Scorpio 16!

This Eclipse is during Mercury retrograde in Scorpio and follows the Oct 28 Chiron sextile Pluto, Halloween’s Mars trine Pluto, and the Nov 1 fourth Uranus square Pluto! 
See all about them in the Scorpio Newsletter!

  • Mercury will be secretly looking at the chances of several options, none of which will likely make the final cut, but they are definitely intriguing.  Maybe later on.
  • Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, has just gotten action from three planets – Chiron, Mars, Uranus, setting the stage for the Eclipse!!
  • In spite of difficulties, Chiron has offered healing, and possible business opportunities.
  • Mars, used to rule Scorpio, now Pluto does.  Mars is Pluto’s ally and champion at this time.  Pluto in Capricorn is more careful these days, knowing there could be long term payback, karmic debts incurred.  Mars in Virgo has had devilishly quick insights, that sees the patterns clearly and has set Pluto free from some of his concerns.  There are fruitful new ways to use the money.  Relief.
  • The Uranus square Pluto has been with us since 2010 causing all kinds of economic and political upheaval.  It is now at stage 4, of 7.  We are used to it, but this is the tipping point!  There are fewer aspects still to come than we have already done!  Uranus, the ChangeMaker, Awakener, has brought sweeping challenges; Pluto in Capricorn has done its best to manage them.  No surprise one of the biggest counties in the world shut its government down – the polarity is Uranus the genius wildcard futurist and Pluto the conservative controller in Capricorn.  In various ways, both are right.  And, typically, when things go fast, the one scared to move with the flow, digs in their heels.

The US government was back up with the Full Moon Eclipse, and now is on the waning, finishing cycle, much to be done for recovery, laying in a better foundation, roots.  The New Moon Eclipse ends one phase, begins the renewing of Light, now growing above ground for all to see, partake.

This eclipse is a Hybrid and quite rare because it begins with annularity and ends with totality.  Not a surprise that it is hybrid.  Many people are left with deeply passionately split opinions after the government shutdown.   Worldwide, a few will see the annular eclipse, then a very brief total eclipse.  For others it will be Annular, like in the eastern US – the Moon is at its furthest from Earth so appears smaller, hence the ‘Ring of Fire’ effect!  Those of us west won’t see it at all.  Sky & Telescope details!

At eleven degrees Scorpio, the Hybrid will be two degrees of Saturn, planet of Karma and Dharma!  Saturn is not usually in favor of hybrids, too unstable, especially when in Scorpio, a fixed sign that also likes things to stay the way they are.  But Scorpio and Saturn both have to do with natural endings.  They understand life’s realities, so they don’t fight it.  Scorpio is the psychic surgeon, so if the chance is offered, it may try to excise and cauterize the wound if there is a reasonable chance resurrection will work.  Both understand wearing out, breaks and renovation, are adept at rebuilding clean, better than ever.  If it can’t be fixed, they won’t waste your time, often abruptly calling it quits.  That can be tough if it involves your love life or the life of a loved one.

Career matters may be briefly eclipsed, or permanently overridden by a ‘louder event.  Or they may be focused on at a deep level, never to be the same afterwards.  Mars has an important place with the New Moon.  It sextiles the New Moon potently within 4 minutes of space (not degrees!)!  Since Moon and Sun are so close to Saturn, Mars sextiles Saturn too, willing to work hard!  The Sun will conjunct Saturn the 6th – serious and personal. Mars will make the exact sextile the 9th.  Each will carry on the work for several more days after the Eclipse!  This offers new options if you pay attention to details, offer a volunteer hand that could become a job, take steps to better health, making more things possible!  It may become a profound work that becomes closely tuned to your life’s Dharma, the work of your Soul!  Scorpio seeks perfection!

Scorpio Eclipse New Moon 2013 Astrology Chart


Sunday Nov 17, 7:16 AM Pacific, Full Moon at 25 Taurus 26

This Full Moon is the reverse of May’s Moon in Scorpio opposite the Sun in Taurus.  That moon is called Wesak by some spiritual communities, celebrated by most Buddhists as the Buddha’s birthday, and, for other Buddhists, marks Buddha’s enlightenment and death.  In astrology, humble Taurus, one who sits, centers, grounds, there is super awareness of body, a sensitivity so great so as to be able to perceive enlightenment, have peace, be one with Nature and animals.  The decision to be with their Beloved is based on a duration of true insight, is deeply loyal because of the depth of the seeing, is patient as it understands and accepts imperfection as well as perfection.

For some, the April Full Moon is the festival of the Christ Love, May is the Buddha Love/Wisdom, and June is Gemini, the Word of Humanity.  Our Full Moon now is half way, at the apex, of the Love/Wisdom cycle.  While Taurus Moon observes, stabilizes, Scorpio Sun roots out, heals what can be, discards or recycles the leavings.  It turns the soil, bringing fertile, forgotten possibilities to the surface.  As the days get shorter, more time is spent in the zone of the Dark, the Underworld, secret passions are coming alive again.  Find ways to add them in this time, befriend their friends, integrate in remarkable ways for greater return in every dimension!

In our recent Hybrid Eclipse, Mars in Virgo sextiled Saturn, the TaskMaster, got a lot done!  Mars has moved forward now to sextile Jupiter of Fame and Fortune, celebration!  Usually a traveler, Jupiter in Cancer may choose more to stay home, fix up the homestead, get organized.  You could travel in a home – the houseboat or camper, or travel to where your ancestors lived, especially on the Matriarchal side.  Mars in Virgo is ever sensible, so you better get the best buy tickets and stay in budget whatever you do!  Mars would like it if you could take a business trip and write off the seminar expenses, travel on the side.  Virgo is the number one sign of authors, and though Mars hates sitting still, if you are writing something exciting, to you, you could get tons written in a very short time.  Jupiter can take it to the publisher!  If it is about women, families, a health food cookbook with recipes from your very own garden, homes, do it yourself ventures, amazing pets, stories that evoke powerful feelings, it’s likely a winner.

The second close aspect unique to this chart is Venus’s upcoming sextile to Saturn.  So as masculine Mars was sextile Saturn during the Eclipse, he is followed by feminine Venus in Capricorn.  Mars and Saturn worked like dogs, got the main structure in place.  Venus in Cap knows the value of structure, plus, the finishing touches that make it irresistible!  She puts the covers on the sofa, selects the color of paint for the wall, the drapes for the windows, gets the curl in your hair, buys makeup for success!  Venus in Capricorn can be a shrewd buyer, finding long lasting materials at the right price, adds the touch that sells your product, knows where and who to market to.  She has a keen eye for old things that can be refurbished for little expense.  For those of you who love thrift shop foraging, Venus in Capricorn, sextile Cap’s planet Saturn, is like double lucky cheap deals (completes the aspect Saturday the 23rd)!!  Good luck hunting!

From Divinity to Daily, set your sights high and wide, dial up your detectors.  An inch of well placed effort can BE a mile of money and sweet rewards!
