Happy Birthdays, Virgos!

Virgo Faith HIll, husband Tim McGraw Singers

Singer Faith Hill and her husband Tim McGraw arrive at the 48th ACM Awards in Las Vegas April 7, 2013.  (Reuters)

Perhaps you have heard of Faith Hill. She’s an unusual Virgo and there are reasons for that. Primarily she started as a country singer. Born Sept 21, 1967, we don’t have a birthtime for her, but she does have Pluto, Uranus and her Sun together in Virgo. Uranus is singers and Pluto is wealth. She has sold over 40 million albums and accumulated 11 number one singles on the Country charts. Uranus rules the world at large, and Pluto takes it to the extreme!

She has Jupiter and Venus together in Leo. She’s golden with the classic chocolate brown eyes, though at times the camera picks up a beautiful hazel color just like my Virgo Aunt Ruth had. She has golden hair and often dresses gold. Golden gowns and lots of shiny, just like the Sun, Leo’s ‘planet,’ a shining star!

Faith’s romantic Leo planets have brought her a most unusual success! She is super successful making adoring duets with her husband Tim McGraw, a looker in his own right! They make it a rule not be be apart more than 3 days at a time.

She has come a long way. Adopted. Quit college, was discovered after some time at Nashville. Her Moon in Taurus gives more good looks, a sensuous voice, and perseverance. She has lots of records, both numbers of records sold, and has set some records! The song ‘Wild One,’ on her first album, made her the first female country singer in 30 years to hold Billboard’s #1 position for four consecutive weeks! When she followed her album Faith with Breathe, it debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard Country and all genre charts, ahead of albums by Mariah Carey and Savage Garden. “The Way You Love Me” hit the top ten as well (#6), and became one of the longest running singles in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 (57 weeks)! The album won all kinds of awards!

Hill has been honored by the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music, the Grammy Awards, the American Music Awards and the People’s Choice Awards and so many more in so many ways. In 2001 she was named one of the 30 most powerful women in America by Ladies Home Journal.

Classic Virgo book lover! Hill used her 1999 tour to support a national children’s book drive. Fans who donated books at one of her concerts were entered into a drawing to meet her personally after the show. The effort resulted in the donation of 35,000 children’s books, which were distributed to hospitals, schools, libraries, and daycare centers in 40 cities across the United States.

Hero and Heroine! True to the community planet Uranus conjunct Faith’s sun, in the days immediately following Hurricane Katrina, Hill and her husband, who was raised in Louisiana, joined groups taking supplies to Gulfport, Mississippi. The two also hosted several charity concerts to benefit those who were displaced by the storm. Later in the year the couple established the Neighbor’s Keeper Foundation, which provides funding for community charities to assist with basic humanitarian services in the event of a natural disaster or for desperate personal circumstances.

Their Soul2Soul II Tour 2006 became the highest grossing country music tour ever with a gross of $90 million. It was named “Major Tour of the Year” by the prestigious Pollstar Magazine, beating out such heavyweights as Madonna and the Rolling Stones. In a special gesture, the couple donated all of the profits from their performance in New Orleans to Hurricane Katrina relief.

Currently they are in progress with their 2017 Soul2Soul World Tour! Here’s the schedule if you would like to see them!

Released in April, Faith & Tim Preach R E S P E C T Toward Women With New Song ‘Speak to a Girl’ They take turns trading verses. First Faith offers a female’s perspective, then Tim echos from the man’s side. As parents of three teenage daughters, you can see why it is so important to them. Blessed be.

Virgo 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

8.29.17 Moon Saturn Antares Photo Op Rings of Saturn!

 

Moon near Saturn and Antares on August 29!

Use the Moon to find Saturn, the 6th planet outward from the sun. Saturn now shines in front of the constellation Ophiuchus, of the sometimes called the forgotten constellation of the zodiac. Find out more about Ophiuchus on our Tonight post for August 13.

Saturn is the most distant world that you can easily see with the unaided eye. Moreover, you can view Saturn’s majestic rings with nothing more than a modest backyard telescope. Even though the four outer planets (planets orbiting the sun outside the asteroid belt) – Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune – have a ring system of sorts, Saturn’s rings are the most spectacular by leaps and bounds.

This year, in 2017, the north side of Saturn’s rings are maximally tilted toward Earth. So right now is a great time to dust off that telescope and gaze at Saturn, the crown jewel of the solar system.

[Oh, and Antares is the brightest star in the Scorpio Constellation! If you know where Scorpio is, you can find Antares then Saturn!]

Outer Planet Transits with Virgo 2017- Aug 2018!

The super amazing Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse in Leo catapulted us into Sun in Virgo Aug 22! What an entry! The 5 part Lunar sequence linked with the Mercury Retrograde cycle is finishing with Virgo’s New and Full Moons!

October 23 2016 started a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that are the primary aspects of 2017! We had Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Jupiter square Pluto ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24! The ‘Holiday Four, plus the very close Jupiter sextile Saturn, that happened the last 8 days of 2016.

The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, started the 2017 retrograde set of the SIX aspects in reverse order through May 18. The final set of six started July 4. September 23 and 27 Jupiter inconjuncts Chiron and opposes Uranus, Oct 10 Jupiter enters Scorpio! Nov 2 Saturn squares Chiron, and the entire set finishes 11/11 with Saturn trine Uranus! That’s a go ahead!

Jupiter is in its final 49 days of Libra, enters Scorpio Oct 10! Time to find good footing and balance to make and weather relationships. Make alliances that will hold true through times to come, go to schools and places that will make a difference. Learn how to equalize the elements at hand, trade and exchange wisely.

Saturn will be in Sagittarius until Dec 19, 2017, then in its own sign Capricorn!

Outer Planet Transit Aspects Virgo 2017 – Sep 2018!

Virgo Health Strong Stride Couple Nordic Walking

Virgo in a healthy strong stride! Walking is free – fresh air, healthy heart, relaxing!

Four outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter, are changing signs in Virgo’s year to come. Expect several maturities, endings, new beginnings and exciting new intentions!

Pluto in Capricorn reaches the beginning of the last third of Capricorn May 2018 moving from 16 to 21 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Pluto and Capricorn are both harmonious with Virgo, another earth sign. Pluto and Virgo are both perfectionists and hard workers. Pluto can take it to extremes. This is one rare instance when Virgo may put on the brakes! Virgo is a fine craftsman, uses the best materials. Capricorn goes for durability, strength and protection and is willing to forfeit some details to get the job in on time. Pluto and Virgo are both healers. Capricorn bides his time, steps in when the time is right. Expect some sifting away the chaff.

Neptune is in its own sign, a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. Pisces is opposite Virgo. Virgo heals the body and Mind while Pisces heals the Soul. Virgo seeks data that explains and procedures that makes sense. Pisces goes way beyond that into an inexplicable greater realm, seeing what may happen that makes no logic but comes to pass anyway. The Soul has its own course. Sometimes we understand; sometimes there is a greater picture that is more important, operates in a different order than reason. If Pisces gets lost in the spiritual ethers, Virgo pulls the sails back to a stable flow with the currents, for a possible course correction.

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 2 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the last year of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a automatic. In Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries is the first to DO it! Fire and electricity make the world go around! Virgo loves a better way, but wants to keep her routine! Uranus is the unpredictable, unstable at times, ChangeMaker fast as lightning! Aries is fast too, easily distracted by the next new thing! Great as a consultant, but Virgo is the one usually left with incorporating the conversion. Virgo is considered a flexible, adaptable sign, but this will call for the max! Routines can not be counted on, the rules may be changed daily! Virgo calls on the inventors and leaders to slow down at times, and for them to be even more creative in finding ways for their ideas to be more easily assimilated. Virgo first wants to see how it works and know why. She safeguards the system.

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Taurus tries out the application. It needs to be easy to use, worth the effort. It calls for a steady and practical solution. Virgo quite agrees. The Uranian wildcard is always extraordinary, so can do that too! Taurus and Virgo are both earthy. Taurus rules fur, farm animals; Virgo rules pets. Hopefully some animals may be more protected. Taurus wants comfort and Virgo wants their patients to be relieved of suffering that more of their energy will go to healing. Taurus grows plants that Virgo may harvest for seeds and use as less expensive medicinals. Uranus in Taurus may find some fascinating massage or yoga techniques never used before. Virgo can always use a little relaxation. A walk on the land would suit them both. Taurus is ruled by Venus, beauty and value. Virgo organizes patterns and has incredible craft skills making exquisite quilts, wood carvings, ceramic tiles, sophisticated clothing designs!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, covers 24 Pisces to 2 Aries, entering Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will conjunct any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business.

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Virgo, as with Neptune, is opposite Chiron. There is more affinity since Chiron was a noted healer, and Virgo was the village medicine person and midwife. She carried her basket of herbs. She was WiseWoman, who counseled mind as well as healing body. She was High Priestess at times, knowing the magic that went with the medicine. Chiron suffered long, learned a lot, became teacher. Virgo works on a daily basis. Chiron in Pisces may be a more spirit master, giving insights that help the daily ministrations find a way to be received and absorbed. At times Virgo may need to stand aside, then return when the patient is ready again. Good health and clear thinking are important! Chiron and Virgo may do great business together, become partners, even marry!

When Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will speed up healing at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance! Virgo has its tried and true ways, so some upstart may have to prove himself before Virgo accepts the new ideas! Rarely does Virgo let themselves be rushed, but if the cure works, will do anything in their power to distribute it. If it is not properly vetted, Virgo may demand the proper processes be applied. Aries marvels at the details Virgo does, may have to jump in to move things faster, save the day! Virgo could be temporarily overwhelmed, but can carry on as the dust settles.

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through September 2018. Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020.

In Sagittarius Saturn squares Virgo, but is also an Earth planet, earth sign combination. Saturn has a greater range of vision in Sagittarius and he’s gotten used to it! He keeps Virgo lined up with the greater plan and aware of how much time it will take. Some details make all the difference. Others will be let go by agreement in context of the great good, the best for all. In Sag, Saturn wants work to be broader, culture inclusive or tightens the work to the most meager and cost cutting possible, perhaps choosing quantity versus quality, foreign workers at the lowest pay. Virgo is known for fine craftsmanship, stands for consumer rights, and dignity, safety and health care for workers, no animal or human abuse. They may part company if compromise isn’t possible. Find work where your contribution is respected and celebrated, serves your community!

Saturn Returns, every 28 to 29 years, can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! If you are on your first Return, you may be having substantial career success, marry, have your first child, buy a home! If you are on your second Return, about age 58, you may be thinking of retirement plans, be called to take care of aging parents. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from experienced experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive.

Those with Saturn 21 to 29 degree Sagittarius will be having their Sagittarian Saturn Returns. Sagittarians are seers, looking across the mountains, over the rainbow, keenly to the arrow’s target far, far away. Saturn knows so much is doable. One step, one board, a brick at a time, the framework will go up. Sagittarius will have their learning place, teaching hope itself. They are optimistic and faithful to the cause. When that one is built, on to the next!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when you get work that suits you better or you start your own business! Capricorn and Virgo are in it together for the long run. Virgo usually has a notable skill they deserve credit for! Capricorn sees that talent and puts them to work unless Virgo hires them to run things! Capricorn builds the laboratory that Virgo may do the trials and testing. Caps make Virgo more aware of time spent and effective timing. Virgo suggests health and nutrition techniques that Capricorn know will promote a more healthy older age. Hand in glove.

Those of you with Saturn 0 to 9 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns! There will be more traditional endeavors. Take good care of yourself, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age may become a factor, retirement. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Jupiter moves from 20 Libra to 23 Scorpio, entering Scorpio Oct 10!

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Jupiter in Libra can be well traveled and curious wherever it goes, giving suggestions and making comparisons right and left. Virgo, one of Libra’s neighboring signs, is so different. Their quiet performance is honed through intense focus, trial and error, hands on experience. Jupiter can be their sales rep, work the showroom, publish the news releases! Virgo is so dedicated they sometimes forget to do business. Jupiter sees their value and wants to partner! To unassuming Virgo, it seems like Jupiter is making a big fuss about it all. Virgo sometimes doesn’t even realize how extraordinary what they have done is! Well traveled Jupiter sees it instantly! It stands far above the rest! Ask this artisan first when it is a good time to talk, and don’t keep them too long. Make your points, requests, go away and let them think it over…. Ha! Let yourself be discovered!

Jupiter in Scorpio! Virgo and Scorpio straddle Libra the middleman! Jupiter is still moving things along, confident and optimistic! The traveler seeker is always looking for amazing things. Scorpio is often obsessed with perfection and Virgo can offer that quality! Scorpio, a psychological healer, is seeking a deeper value, and Virgo, a fellow healer, body/mind, always shares. Jupiter calls Virgo to bring it out further into teaching, whether private tutoring, a small group or to as many as will listen or by writing the book! Jupiter is publisher, Scorpio is journalist, Virgo is author, especially of DIY and training manuals. Time to gather the information, Jupiter may flood you with it! Organize it, synthesize the various facets into a working sequence, arrange publishing! Jupiter in Scorpio is a master at getting funding and Virgo is super at accounting. This work will help many and have a charismatic appeal. Worthy investment.

If your Jupiter is in these Libra or Scorpio degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it wildly abundant! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and marriages are quite possible.

Here’s the Outer Planet Sign Changes Timetable:

2017
Oct 10  Jupiter from Libra to Scorpio

Virgo EarthKeepers!

Virgo Earthkeeper Master Gardener

Virgos have a knack for making our lives a more beautiful place!

Tending gardens, houseplants and humans comes naturally for them. Mowing your lawn or a Horticulture or Landscaping degree are things they are good at. They have an eye for natural spacing and placing. Being with Nature reduces stress and improves sleep, balances a busy life, increases happiness! It works even if it involves just nurturing a few pots on a balcony! Good pesticide free organic food keeps us healthy, restores us. You are what you eat and you think more clearly. Flowers are like sunshine to our every thought.

Mind and body go together! Nutrition and nursing takes care of every detail. Through their clear attention our thinking follows a divine order, we save time, have time to do more elegant things as well! Intricate professions like bookkeeping/accounting, systems analysis, efficiency consulting show us more powerful percentages and abundant payoffs. Weeding our lives of unnecessary clutter  and cleaning up literally makes our lives brighter!

Growing humans is sometimes hard work on both sides. Virgo usually knows quite a bit. Delivering the knowledge isn’t always easy for either the Virgo or the other person, possibly another Virgo! Virgo can have a bite with her bark, even when there is good intention behind it. The trick is to educate at appropriate times, ask if it is a good time to talk, talk when no one is tired, with a smile of appreciation on your face and mean it. It’s not what you say, but how you say it. A good rule to follow is 5 appreciations to one criticism. Know that too much criticism unkindly delivered has consequences. You may lose a connection, even damage the other person, especially if a Virgo child or mate. If you are clever at criticism, you can be clever with praise! The process is not to prove how smart you are or one up to make yourself bigger or better than, but to share and make an ally, pull together in the traces. Well oiled machine. Hats off to you for your efforts.

Working independently is often best. Virgos have their ways, often a routine. Interruptions throw them off course. Delegating is not so easy. They like it precise and excellent quality. They are quite willing to do that for you. Too much fine tuning and sometimes they lose their job. However, if poor quality materials or building jeopardize lives, they may need to be in a safe place to blow the whistle. Believe me, they will have the data and evidence to back up what they claim. Heroes and heroines. Some can be good instructors, but they need good students that can keep up. Virgos deliver a lot of well thought out information in a very short time! On-the-job training, hands on examples are the best for them.

Though Virgos are often avid readers, have a library of their own, book learning is just not their best job training medium unless it is a do-it-yourself manual! Hands on, on-the-job training works better. They can see it and feel it, prove it to themselves. Yet Virgos are #1 as authors! They can write and write and write! Mystery novels! Virgos are consummate puzzle solvers! Famed Agatha Christie was Virgo rising, Saturn and Sun in Virgo, Jupiter in the 6th house! Chart They write super informative detail by detail how-to blogs, stunning documentaries, well organized training manuals!

Virgos do a lot of daily business. They are not usually heavy lifters, but keep things livable and in running order. Repairs, housekeeping, gardening, laundries, trash removal, elder caregivers. If they have a bit of Sagittarius in their chart, expect a hotel/bed and breakfast or university work or works at the racetrack! Ones with a bit of Cancer in their charts may tend the genealogy archives at the library or museum. Throw in some Taurus and you may get a veterinarian that adores fur persons and livestock. With Aquarius you may get a double checking researcher who is honored for the excellence of their trustworthy work.

Environmental concern is strong with them. They love our Earth, often are walkers. Toxic cleanup, restoration and protection of habitats, protecting wildlife whether running a campaign, a rescue organization, a  preserve or being a ranger are favored. They can do meaningful research seeking long term results, trends for climate change. Don’t be surprised if your Virgo becomes a Master Gardener!

Simply put, Virgos do a monumental job as EarthKeepers, in so many ways, every single day.

New & Full Moon Connections Throughout! Aug 21 US Total Solar Eclipse is during the Retrograde!

Most significant Mercury Retrograde Leo-Virgo 2017!

Cosmic DNA, evolutionary strands, a weaving of multitude, an unseen pilot lighting the way, time travel…..spiritual intelligence incarnate. We do the same hours every day, yet no two days are alike. Unique waves of consciousness never experienced before. Recognition, Fusion, Alliance, Passage.

This Mercury Retrograde is entirely unique, the holder of the Aug 21 Second Leo New Moon US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE that is at the degree the whole Mercury Retrograde cycle starts at and Mercury goes Direct at! It is also unique by its connections with the New and Full Moons throughout its cycle!

The day after the first LEO New Moon, July 23, the Leo/Virgo Mercury Retrograde cycle starts – not the retrograde, the cycle! The retrograde starts August 12 in Pacific time. Expect that projects begun from July 24 through Aug 12, will not come out exactly as planned. The exciting US Total Solar Eclipse is during the Retrograde part of the cycle – check your reservations in advance – confirm, confirm, confirm – everything! Mercury turns Direct/forward, the day before the Sep 6 Full Corn Moon. Be ready to be flexible, make it better and better through the time of the whole 3 part cycle! It finishes Sep 19, the day of the Virgo New Moon! Clearly, this Mercury Retrograde cycle is linked with the MOON!

Leo the genetic Heart of the LightBearer; Virgo the DNA LightWeaver!

x
Mercury starts in Leo for only two days, but they are oh, so potent! 
The 3 part Mercury Retrograde cycle starts at 28 Leo and Mercury turns Direct/forward at 28 Leo. It is the root degree and sign of the Retrograde! The contemplation all starts with Leo, the sign of the Heart! Gold is its color! Heroes and athletes are favored. It is Self aware and creative from that central spark of the Light of the Sun! The Lion is with fixed star Regulus the King, why not Queens too?! Regulus was at 29 Leo, but now is early 0 degree Virgo, the Maiden, Healing Priestess! Virgo is the sign of organization and service, and the royals must now make their contribution in high style, truly serve the People! I think of Justin Trudeau whose Ascendant is 3 Virgo. Regulus is one of the four Persian Royal Stars, the Watcher of the South, Summer Solstice, Archangel Raphael, Doctor of Medicine.

Mercury moves along into Virgo, but returns to Leo for a 10 day station (standstill as it turns direction forward), Aug 31 to Sep 9. Mercury is the planet of magical synapses, within oneself and with others! Words get around and we see their many faces. We think, we speak to our core intelligence, the who we are. In Leo there is the search for authenticity, being in the heart, radiant with natural Light. It’s a creative posture, alive with brilliant potential. It calls for a purity of Being that gives the strength from being true. Mercury handshakes its way with a smile that moves the Soul! It passes it on. Irresistible! At the last two degrees of Leo it is mature and sure. Leo being a fixed sign; once it has found its way, it is the Light on the Path, steady and with a remarkable Will to succeed.

Mercury in Virgo, one of its own signs, is clever and succinct, lines up connections so those synapses can fire more frequently. It aligns DNA-like rows of synapses that exchange energy as they travel. It keeps energy points clean so there is clear, quick and accurate exchange. Properly lined up and in peak condition, they can self create and continue. They are strong, flexible. Make turns, reverses to review. They twist to vantage points to look back on how to profit from past experiences and glimpse the future.

The everyday experience might look like how it is situated at the Aug 7 Full Leo/Aquarius Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse:

Mercury is slowing to Retrograde Aug 12, so charming Venus in Cancer, moving faster, is making the sextile to Mercury in Virgo! The practical side of things gets done at home and at work too! Techniques are delightfully woven into our daily fabric. The Art gallery is in order, the finest are selected for cultural beauty, utility and fine craftsmanship. Though it is tempting to do beauty and body work, make clothing choices, it is so close to Mercury Rx, there is a good chance you won’t want the same things very soon. Be sure to get warranties, receipts for refunds. Quickly design your business card and logo. See if it withstands Mercury Rx before you print. Rather than remodel, design on paper and wait. Further options are quite likely to come along! Bookkeeping and services, health matters, getting some rest, streamlining your life, landlord/tenanting may require your attention. Wait until about 5 days after Mercury turns forward/direct to make changes, get engaged. Mercury turns forward Sept 5.

The Aug 12 Retrograde is at 11 Virgo 38, square the fixed star Antares in the constellation Scorpio! Squares mean challenges most any day, but to Antares it may not be an easy challenge. Since Mercury direction changes also mean being in Station, an 8 day period, the energy will be held a good 8 days. Since Antares is at 9 Sagittarius 46+, we’ll extend that time to 5 days before the 12th, 5 days following. Antares is another of the four Persian Royal Stars, the Watcher of the West, autumnal equinox, Archangel Uriel/Oriel, Fire of God. Rob Tillett sums up Antares saying: Spirit of adventure, obstinacy, injuries to eyes, honours, sudden loss, stubborn, suspicious, violent, several marriages. A super simplified interpretation by me would be Virgo wants to work, Sagittarius wants to play and doesn’t show up on time. That’s not a disaster, but you might lose your job and that could become a challenge! If you’re going surfing during work time, take the boss with you!

The Retrograde cycle starts with the Star of the South, Regulus, and ends in connection with the Star of the West, Antares.

Retrograde in Leo, Mercury may change his mind about his opinion about himself. And that’s likely to flip or shift again as there are further developments while Mercury is in station – appears to be standing still in the sky Sep 1 to 8 – then moves forward again and finishes Leo, for the year, Sep 9. The choices of self presentation, personal style – words, posture, looks, colors, lighting – will definitely change. Educational matters, seminar schedules, advertising text, romantic concerns, will change, adjust, maybe improve with adjustments. Consider, research, but wait. Redesign, check fit, availability, but wait. If it passes Virgo specs during the first week Mercury is back in Virgo, go for it! To be on the safe side, get changes clients make approved with signatures and dates, keep receipts, get warranties.

During the Leo station, Mercury Rx conjuncts Mars at 28 Leo 43 on Sep 3. Sep 5 Mercury turns Direct, as Mars moves forward into Virgo. Traveling closely together it takes until Sep 16 for Mercury to make its catchup second conjunction at 7 Virgo 13! In Leo, Mercury interviews the champion, announces a winner, names the leader! He announces the new creation, the exciting new curriculum! Mercury in Virgo puts the energy into action, organizing efforts to achieve the project  A garden may be started, a new health regime makes the news, study efforts back at school are swiftly dispatched. New hires, private contractors, are welcomed gratefully.

The FIVE part Lunar Sequence!

  1. The July 23 New Moon Is the day before the Mercury Rx cycle starts! It will help you see what’s at the bottom of things, the new beginning you would like to aim for. Moon conjunct Sun is a mighty union especially when the Sun is in his own sign Leo! It’s time to stand tall and have the pride of your own sweet Spirit!
  2. Before the August 7 Full Green Corn Moon Lunar Eclipse, Mercury is close to opposite Neptune in Pisces! Virgo is one of Mercury’s own signs, and Neptune rules the opposite sign Pisces and is in Pisces! It’s almost like a double opposition! Mercury is intrigued by things out of its usual scope, a higher order perhaps. It can be used as a universal model. Things flow, health improves, you arrive at a vantage point of synchronicity that surprises you by its infinitely more favorable links. Logic and intuition work well together. They stay close but with Mercury slowing to retrograde, they don’t become exact, but considerations are stirred. They are within three degrees 10 days, from August 7 to 17. The exact aspect isn’t made, the outcome revealed isn’t revealed, until Sep 19. See more!
  3. Second Leo New Moon, US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE is at 28 Leo 53! This is the degree the entire Mercury Rx cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at!! The Eclipse is during Mercury Rx, Mercury at 8 degrees Virgo during the Eclipse! He trines Dark Moon Lilith at 9 Capricorn. Laser logic and bold feminine success. Tending and building. Cool mind, clear focused passionate power! Use the Eclipse message as your Guide.
  4. The Sep 6 Pisces/Virgo Full Corn Moon is not linked to degrees in the Mercury Rx cycle, but is linked in time, happening the day after Mercury goes Direct, forward! Mercury is in station, appearing to stand still in the sky, at that time. Mercury holds the degree for 8 days, 4 before and 4 after the direction turn. There is a deep intake, a focus, mulling it over, a strengthening, an anchoring is possible. Take care what you hold in your thoughts in these 8 day periods. This time we look at the span of Pisces to Virgo. The Moon is conjunct Neptune in Pisces, his own sign! There are psychic memories of our past life deaths and births, misunderstandings and meanings, denials and dreams. It’s a lot to take in, but the Virgo Sun opposite, uses common sense, and reorders our thinking so we can use the information in a good way to help and heal in current time. Mars newly at 0 Virgo, conjunct fixed star Regulus (see more), wants to move things right along, see to the finer points of things, and may get the job done in record time!
  5. The Sep 19 Virgo New Moon is at 27 Virgo, while Mercury is finishing his cycle at 11 Virgo on the same day! As the Moon cycle finishes and begins anew, Mercury is finishing the Retrograde loop and stepping into new territory! Each has the past as its foundation to move on from. Note your successes, and what needs a bit more work. Give yourself credit. Virgo rules work we perform, services. bookkeeping and budgeting. Health and healing, taking care of pets. Choices based on critical and practical thinking are necessary to accomplish our goals. Again, the degrees are not linked, but the timing is. More wise and experienced, together we celebrate and embark on the next part of our journey!

Here’s the Mercury and Lunar Timing!

July 23 First Leo New Moon at 0 Leo 44
xxxx24 Mercury at 28 degrees Leo Retrograde Cycle starts
xxxx25 Mercury into Virgo, one of its own signs

Aug    7 Full Green Corn Moon at 15 Aquarius/Leo 25
xxxx12 Mercury Retrograde at 11 degrees Virgo
xxxx21 Second Leo New Moon, US TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE at 28 Leo 53! This is the degree the entire Mercury Rx cycle started at and Mercury goes Direct at!! The Eclipse is during Mercury Rx, Mercury at 8 degrees Virgo during the Eclipse!
xxxx31 Mercury back in Leo only 10 days until Sep 9

Sep    5 Mercury Direct – forward at 28 Leo the Eclipse degree! Mars at 0 Virgo conjunct fixed star Regulus!
xxxxx6 Full Corn Moon 13 Pisces/Virgo 53
xxxxx9 Mercury returns to Virgo, one of its own signs
xxxx19 Virgo New Moon at 27 Virgo 27 + Last day of Mercury Retrograde Cycle, Mercury at 11 Virgo 28!

When Mercury is in Leo, those of you with chart factors in 26 to 29 degrees of fixed signs, Leo/Aquarius, Taurus/Scorpio, will feel the challenge. Those with factors in those same degrees of Fire signs Aries and Sagittarius, will more likely be excited by the changes!

The majority of the Retrograde is 0 to 11 degrees Virgo. Those of you with chart factors in mutable signs, Virgo/Pisces, Gemini/Sagittarius, will be challenged when Mercury is in Virgo. The Earth signs, Taurus and Capricorn will likely find it a smoother ride.

Wishing you all the very best. By my thinking, this Mercury Retrograde is significant! Make it so.

New SuperMoon!  Saturn square Chiron, Mercury, GALACTIC CENTER!

Wednesday April 26, 5:16 AM Pacific at 6 Taurus 27! 

Galactic Center 2009 NASA

Hang onto your socks, Earthlings! In celebration of the International Year of Astronomy 2009, NASA’s Great Observatories — the Hubble Space Telescope, the Spitzer Space Telescope, and the Chandra X-ray Observatory — collaborated to produce an unprecedented image of the central region of our Milky Way galaxy! This image takes up about 1 degree across the sky. The Galactic Center is the white area to the right just below center.

First of four 2017 supermoons, a new supermoon! The new moons on April 26, May 25 and June 24 all qualify as supermoons. Tides are higher. Spirits have more volume! In Taurus that can mean more need for closeness, candles and romance, good food and lots of it, or an urge to secure our resources! We might exercise more or start a New Moon plan to do so!

This Taurus New Moon opens gentle doors to breaking down the barriers of the April 30 Saturn square Chiron healing. Chiron doesn’t always want healing, or give up secrets of the healing arts easily. Not all healing is comfortable as we let go, shift our lives, make adjustments. Sometimes we lose close relationships. Careers and businesses ventures may be challenged, breakthroughs possible. Recovery can be hard work, but we step out of the crucible over the threshold, a new person, no longer vulnerable to that old condition. Taurus can be the calming balm, soothing. It gives us fortitude, patience, determination to best the odds, endure until we are able to stand up again, to live in better ways.

Saturn in Sagittarius is retrograde, going back to make his second trine with Uranus May 18! An old Master, he is experienced, he knows that Uranian change is smart evolution, inevitable. It is a relief to old stunted stilted tired thinking. It frees us to a greater range of ideas, opportunities made more whole by a multitude of community contribution! The gains are so more worth it than the cost of the change to make them! Long term payoffs. Productive friends and associates. Sciences flourish.

Mercury is retrograding as well, going back to conjunct Uranus! In Aries it is fireworks and inspiration like never before! Every person is spontaneously independently giving their part! This is an outspoken crowd! Saturn in Sagittarius, trining them both, has important serious opinions. Uranus is the rebel ahead of his time, Aries is the volatile Leader of Light, Mercury is the Word – in this case shouted! I suspect the April 29 Climate March will have super impact!

The GALACTIC CENTER figures strongly in our New Moon chart! Saturn is at 27 Sagittarius, one degree of the GC! Yes, he squares Chiron, but also trines Uranus at 25 Aries, and Mercury at 26 Aries, they in lucky trine with the GC! Uranus, ruling the heavens, IS our galactic planet, and Mercury of mind is considered exalted in Uranus’s sign Aquarius. Mercury with Uranus is positively brilliant! Ideas ahead of their time, research that amazes the world. Mercury wants to talk, download! Probably intergalactic at this point! Just tune the dial! Speech, communications are emphasized! It can be gibberish to genius, higher learning in progress. Breathless with keen excitement, electrified fingers reach out to touch! We are alive and transforming ourselves and others at once!

Mercury is retrograde in Aries. Though fast in Aries, Mercury retrograde is also reviewing, turning it’s thoughts, going over what was done, might have been missed, what to do, how to do it better and be more to the point until May 3! He turns forward then and definitely puts things into action, trials and finishing details until he enters Taurus again May 15. From then on there needs to be visible progress. Aries is mind; Taurus is matter. Make time to think and be ready to use the ideas you have now for good results to come.

Mercury and Mars, the planet of Aries, are in mutual reception, in each other’s signs. With one eye over the shoulder, the other looking straight ahead, right between your eyes, sequences are instantly understood. With Mars in Gemini, the vision is all encompassing, scans are comprehensive and as fast as a blink! Trust your flash of insight; it is gifted. Quickly document all aspects with as many outlets as possible so there will be as much distribution and continuance as possible. Breathe out the Word!

In the beginning it will take many Souls to carry all the parts of this great body of knowledge. Each one will need to be free and independent enough to do their part. Each part needs to be protected until it is anchored while still pure. It is important that these Light Workers remain unclouded by popular thought.

These aspects lend an empowering background and meaning to the New Moon. At 6 Taurus, the New Moon makes no major aspects yet is vitally important to being a part of the fabric of the greater scenario. She acts as an unobstructed channel. Taurus stands in strength, able to support and sustain the platform for the massive amount of information that is coming through. Impeccable.

There are three planets in spiritual PiscesNeptune, Pisces’ planet, Chiron the Healer/Teacher, and Venus, herself at 29 Pisces, the last degree of the zodiac! At this time, these three hold the shimmering living vision that permeates our Being. Art and beauty, music, attract us, keep us tuned to deeper knowing. Neptune calls for compassion. Chiron repairs our sorrows and Soul, boosts us to the next level with its teaching.

Venus holds a special point not only because she is at the last degree of the zodiac, but she is at the degree of the Pleiades, the Seven Sisters! The Zuni of New Mexico call the Pleiades the Seed Stars; the Japanese call them Subaru, meaning ‘unite.’ They are in the shoulder of the bull, the TAURUS constellation, and Taurus is one of Venus’ signs! Alcyone is their main star. You can imagine what kind of troubles could ensue due to 7 sisters! Venus is susceptible to greed, envy, possessiveness, selfishness and self indulgence. On the other hand, 7 feminine forces to your favor wouldn’t be all bad, LOL! Can you imagine the strength in the shoulder of the Bull?!! Venus is a proponent of the arts, love and kindness, self esteem, clear values, and attracts money!

In a few days Venus concludes her mission here, goes into Aries, the first degree of the entire zodiac, Friday the 28th, 6:18 AM Pacific. Minutes later, Mercury then conjuncts Uranus in Aries at 7:50 AM! A feisty and zesty morning! Go to breakfast with your confidants and colleagues! Ask for their support with your causes; give yours to theirs as you can.

The Second Labor of Hercules

Alone and still filled with deep distress, Hercules must rescue a sacred bull [Taurus] from its intended sacrifice to Minos, King of Crete and deliver it to the mainland. On the island, where the bull is captive, is a vast maze, which can lure the adventurous to their bewilderment. Here, following the gleaming star shining from its forehead, Hercules pursues the bull from place to place. Single-handed, he captures it and rides it like a horse through the waters to the mainland, surrounded by the seven Sisters [Pleiades constellation]. He leads it to the Holy Place and delivers it safely to its guardians.

Today, the goal is attained through group effort. This group is ruled by Taurus, and to it that divine Taurian energy brings ‘illumination and the attainment of the vision’. This group is, figuratively speaking, the ‘bull, rushing forward upon a straight line with its one eye fixed upon the goal and beaming light’. That goal is not the goal of Self-illumination, for that lies far behind; it is the goal of providing a centre of light within the world and of holding up the vision to the sons of wo/men.  …excerpted and paraphrased from Lucis Trust

This is the annual merger of Moon and Sun in Taurus. Let it be your abiding guide. Center, focus, stay strong in your core. You may not be Hercules, but each of us is a point of Light. Keep it burning exactly your special way.

Full Flower Moon!
Wesak, Buddha’s Birthday!
Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Saturn trine Uranus!
Galactic Center, Scorpio – Pluto & Mars trine Jupiter!

Wednesday May 10, 2:42 PM Pacific at 20 Scorpio 24

Taurus - Woman Buddha Full Moon

Be your own Buddha!

The Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon opens our wings to the May 17/18 companion aspects, Jupiter inconjunct Neptune and Saturn trine Uranus!

Optimistic Jupiter in Libra visions as far off in time and space as it can! Neptune IS time and space, boundless. An inconjunct aspect invites exploration, peripheral vision, a detour to another dimension! Diversions, distractions and divisions. It can seem things are out of control, but comparisons are made, sensitivity is registered. Jupiter instinctively looks for the best. At any given time things only go so far as new cloaks are able to be tried on. Go lightly as options are considered. Rather than immediate stern defenses, ask questions and invite answers. There may be confusion that seems like mindlessness, but things get sorted out in time. If it is an emergency, stamp your foot and get everyone back to center focus ASAP!

Saturn makes the trine with Uranus May 18. He is the planet of time, age, wisdom earned by experience. Saturn employs boundaries for prevention and protection, regulates flow and distribution. Uranus is the planet of freedom, inevitable evolution, sweeping change, the heavens, sudden shifts of consciousness! There are no boundaries! Saturn linked with Uranus by a trine of success, can ride the plane, shift to different levels of awareness, bring the information home and put the amazing inventions to work for all! Universal blessings. Saturn sees the reality of change and picks what will work most usefully in current times. Those who are innovative for the greater good, and work in harmony with friends and community, will prosper. The whole system is advanced fortuitously. Remarkable!

Neither of these aspects may happen with flashing lights, but soon enough, here and there, results will become evident and the tide will change. What once were isolated outposts become networked teams. A less volatile resistance, more practical posture will be taken as new ideas, cultural integration, proves to work.

What does POP is that Saturn is at 26 Sagittarius May 8 to June 1, the very degree of the GALACTIC CENTER, the center of our Milky Way Galaxy! If you are so lucky to have factors within a degree or two of that number, what a mighty potential there can be if you are ready for it! Sagittarius usually does well with Aries and Leo, Libra and Aquarius, sometimes Gemini.

Moon Scorpio, Sun Taurus! What a mighty combo, fixed signs. Taurus, of Earth herself, immovable, organic, substantial. Scorpio is the sign of the Underworld with all his secrets. How can you change what you can’t see? Both are senses oriented, Taurus sensuality, Scorpio sexuality! Taurus holds position, anchors, while Scorpio ignites the Kundalini fire at the base of your spine! If you can’t see it, maybe you can feel it!

It may be a delicate situation. The huge red giant star Aldebaran holds the fire in the right eye of the Bull! If Taurus pushes, Scorpio retreats. Scorpio tries to circle around behind, but Taurus has always lived in the pasture and senses predator presence. And with their Taurus outwaiting solidarity, hooves and horns, they don’t be pushed much either. Scorpio’s star is Antares, also reddish, and has the cat eyes, Shaula and Lesath, in its tail! A scorpion may be small, but can be deadly and accurate. Powerful guardians. As a therapist they can change your life with few to no words at all! Symbolically Scorpio sees over, within, behind and beyond – the Past, current status, consequences of your actions. If your Taurus-Scorpio union has a mutual purpose, use each other’s powers wisely toward your goal. Let the rest be.

Moon in Scorpio is sextile Scorpio’s planet Pluto in Capricorn! It’s the power to use the old black magic! It can be charismatic, sneaky in the kitchen, love bites in the bedroom, killer with real estate, a high end thief, a healer of extreme suffering. Emotions run the gamut, from none and numb to inundation. Children and family, both Mom and Dad, weigh in strongly. Career may be easily achieved, or obsessive and wickedly never ending, never enough, or simply a lifelong dedication!

Sun trine Pluto, is a powerful wealth aspect. So many famous people have this aspect – not in these signs necessarily. Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Eric Clapton, and slinky Shakira. Also tragic Princess Grace Kelly, scary Bruce Lee, Christina RicciColin FarrellCharles BronsonSteven Seagal, Cate Blanchette, Francois Mitterand, Rupert Murdoch, Buster Keaton and George Sand. It’s kind of an odd combination in that the Sun is the Light, and Pluto was the God of the underworld, of death. But it also brings personal wealth because the Sun is the planet of Self, and puts its whole heart in it! To be charismatic, along with other factors in your chart, attracts recognition. Pluto can be perfectionist, obsessed, and what it decides to do, it does well, fearlessly. In Capricorn these days, it is working with sciences, time, elders, takes super responsibility (or none at all). It is political, tending to the conservative side. Works with laws, rekindles research to heal long standing diseases. It’s a shamanic powerhouse. 

As Saturn backs away from his April 30 square with Chiron, Moon is coming in to trine Chiron. Chiron may have felt a little chapped by Saturn’s demands, square realities to be faced, and bruised a bit by his judgments. Moon in Scorpio is here to soothe Chiron’s wounds. Moon loves you no matter what, Scorpio is not afraid you might bite. Scorpio wants to know where it hurts so it can know what to do. And Sun lightens things up, sextiles Chiron with a calming peace in Taurus, brings the flowers and herbal lotions. As they give you things to do that you do well, you perk up, get your strength and honor back.

Mars in Gemini is about to square Neptune in Pisces, then pushes its trine with Jupiter in Libra! First there is some time in Neptune’s foggy dew, searching for your lost keys. Who knows what other marvels have presented themselves, mysteries have been solved?! Or maybe it is good exploring underwater and you are even a little overwhelmed by all there is to see. And what dreams! At 13, 13 and 14 degrees, these three planets are closely linked. Understanding and a burst into action and spreading the good word are almost simultaneous! There is sudden insight, a breakthrough to compassion, and seeing who to connect with to carry the messages, all at once. Suffering is a strong motivator. Time to let go of addictions, get some exercise, turn the tables. Get in some tennis time, step into some new dancing shoes! Hang out with healthy allies!

Mercury in Aries and Mars in Gemini are still in each other’s signs, a mutual reception! Mercury is direct, moving forward now, and has just electrically conjuncted Uranus the second and last time yesterday! We are reminded to put the brilliance of that connection we had at the New Moon into channels of fulfillment now at this Full Moon. In sympathy with Mars of leadership and action, we are inspired and it happens! Easier than expected!

Every single planet is engaged at this Buddha Birthday Full Flower Moon! It is pregnant in Spirit, linking between each of us, with our peers, partners and equals, to our community and the world at large!

May your life be filled with sweet connections!

Aries Pharrell Williams ~ BE HAPPY!

Happy Rapper, Pharrell Williams, born April 5, 1973, has Venus, Sun, Chiron in Aries and Mars conjunct Jupiter in Aquarius! The brighter the better! Aries rules the head, and hats, and Pharrell knows what to do! He’s only 5′ 9″, so they make him look taller too! :) Red and white are the trademark Aries colors and cars. Though exceptionally youthful looking at 42, he has more than average staying power with his Moon in Taurus.

Numerologically Pharrell’s name has the power of two double Ls – 4 Ls, and dbl Rs! L’s are assigned the #3, cleverness, versatility, intelligence, communications excellence. Rs are given to #9, the most worldly and sophisticated, the most tolerant and the most conscious. Double numbers are thought to be master numbers. In short, Pharrell is a leader of our times.

Pharrell Williams’ net worth is estimated to be from $32M (Forbes) to $155M. He is a successful American rapper, songwriter, singer, fashion designer and records producer. He is also part of the hip-hop producing music duo, The Neptunes alongside Chad Hugo. Per MBW the major contributor to Pharrell’s net worth is his production and music career. A good portion of it comes from his album sales and concert tickets. His shows are always sold out generating him revenues of millions of dollars. His great fashion sense has seen him sign million dollar deals with Louis Vuitton to design jewelry and sunglasses. His entrepreneurial skill has seen him launch profitable ventures such as a children’s website, YouTube channel, shoe Company and a clothing line.

As any good Aries would if they could, he owns a garage full of ostentatious sport cars. Among his collection is a Mercedes-Benz SLR, Ferrari Enzo, McLaren Roadster, Porsche Spyder just to mention a few.

Nominations and awards abound, including 11 Grammy Awards! After all, Aries is Number 1!

Pharrell is an ace at collaboration, both business ventures and philanthropic for many causes. He does concerts to help various causes including the one he did with the gospel choir at the South Carolina church where nine black parishioners were shot and killed. He did the two-hour “Shining a Light: A Concert for Progress on Race in America” program. He owns a non-profit educational foundation called “From One Hand To AnOTHER.” The foundation is for youth between the ages of 7 and 20 in at-risk communities throughout the country. Its mission is to “change the world one kid at a time by giving them the tools and resources to meet their unique potential”. FOHTA’s vision is to modernize the community center concept by empowering kids to learn through new technologies, arts, media and motivation. Pharrell is building a $35 million afterschool center in his hometown Virginia Beach.

HAPPY video! BE happy!

Aries 2016 Highlights!

Foursome Moon, Mars and Saturn, and the star Antares March 29 2016!

Use the Moon to find the planets Mars and Saturn, and the star Antares March 29! Mars is the brightest of the three starlike objects, and you’ll have no trouble spotting it. If you don’t already know Antares, whose location within the constellation Scorpius makes it very noticeable, you can distinguish Saturn from Antares by color. Saturn shines steadily with a golden hue, while Antares sparkles more and appears redder in color.

If the bright moon makes it hard to discern color, try looking with binoculars.

Due to Mars retrograding, Mars, Saturn and Antares will make a triangle in our sky for months to come, eventually catching up with Saturn on August 25, 2016.

Aries TimeLine!

The  FOUR in 30 days outer planet combinations are finishing! The last is the Jupiter square Saturn March 23, that holds continuously through May 26!

Mar 19 Happy Spring Equinox! Sun into Aries!

Mar 23 Jupiter square Saturn, first of two times, holding closely through May 26, its second and final aspect! This outer planet combination marks the last of the FOUR in 30 days of Feb and March! See below

Mar 23 FULL Worm Moon, Lunar Eclipse 

April 6 Moon occults Venus 1:01 AM Pacific
April 7 NEW Moon Second of three New Moon SuperMoons in a row! The new moons of March 8, April 7 and May 6, Pacific dates, all qualify as New Moon Supermoons!

April 17 Mars Retrograde until June 29
April 28
Mercury Retrograde starting double retrograde until Mercury directs May 22

Finishing aspects

  • Saturn trine Uranus is still within 5 degs of their aspect until April 18, fading but the exact aspects still to come. It’s consideration time, preparation….
  • Jupiter opposition Chiron, inconjunct Uranus is currently fading, to finish in August. This is an important combination because the aspects are reversed in 2017! Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, opposition Uranus! 2016  2017
  • We have just finished Jupiter MEGA trine Pluto March 16 and are still strong in the after effects, integrating our learnings into our lives. The third and final aspect to prepare for, with great interest in our portfolios, is June 26! This is the aspect I have been urging you to do what it takes to maximize its results! If it connects with your chart think what you would like to see happen! Do what you can to make it possible, make connections that count! The very Best to you!

Continuing Aspects

  • Uranus and Pluto continue in a close range square. Though no exact aspect will be formed again, the reminder of happenings since 2010 remain with us, many taking years to work through.
  • Chiron & Uranus continue in their many years long journey closely together in the background…. More

2016 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Aries!

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and Capricorn, is a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. At first Aries may feel blocked at every turn, but they are not quitters and enjoy the challenge! Aries dares to interrupt, flashes its Spirit enough to get attention but not get caught. It cleverly sees the weak spot in a house of cards, sometimes gives fair warning, but sooner or later seeds take root and change is inevitable. Soon as it becomes possible, Pluto can lend an experienced Capricorn hand, save time, direct some of the action. The new ideas are fast and furious, some doable, others maybe. The ideas may be grand, but need a little practical and timely how to, and finessing.

Neptune is in its own sign, still in the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. The Sun’s annual course through Aries lends more Light than Pisces is used to. But, our vision is brightened. We are swept off our feet, but stand a little taller too! Neptune the Dreamer and Visionary passes the baton to Aries the Initiator! Aries loves new things, and is delighted by the challenge, honored to lead. Neptune’s subtle guidance soothes the way, Aries feels unthreatened, independence intact. If Neptune is sleepy slow, Aries just moves right on.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. The Sun in Aries really resonates with that. The Sun will conjunct Uranus at 7:56 AM Pacific just after the 4:24 AM Pacific Aries NEW MOON April 7! The Sun Uranus merger will be felt most keenly, a possible awakening of magnitude. Some will feel tingly and unpredictable. Others will feel raised to a new level and wonder if they have been on a spaceship! There may be a special awareness of supersonic consciousness, glimpses of profound insights that won’t be forgotten. You may never feel more all alone yet one with all, in the same moment. Aries, the sign of the new dawn, that happens everyday, may be less impressed. For them it’s business as usual.

Chiron is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Aries, the next sign, isn’t always in the mood for marrying, so they take this part of the connection with a grain of salt. But Aries loves new ventures, quick money and flash. Once started, they may leave things to Chiron to maintain. Chiron is the healer, Aries is a first responder savior. They get the client to the hospital and Chiron goes about what can be done. Chiron may need time outs to rest, contemplate, come upon creative cures in the dreamtime. Aries has auto instinct in action, but a few moments may be needed here and there to recharge.

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius in 2016. As it retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees, factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, the 2nd and 3rd times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof. In Sagittarius it is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Sagittarius is great with Aries. Aries enjoys a good wander, and Aries is already off somewhere else! Saturn in Sag has profound things to share and Aries knows just where to place those seeds so change will come quickly and the seeds will grow well. This may be the most potent traveling you have ever done!

Jupiter in Virgo is inconjunct Aries, askew. Virgo loves its system and Aries was born to toss it to the winds! This combination may need some acceptance of difference. Virgo may do well to let the lesser things pass. Aries can see Virgo cares, and they may both be working for the same cause. Take it easy. Virgo might need some items yesterday. Aries can take care of that! Aries could need some health help and with a few choice words, Virgo can save a lot of time with simple nutritional or herbal cures, and will be there if Aries is twitching with itch to get up outta that bed! Virgo, have your requests ready, make them short and to the point.

Jupiter in Libra (Sep 9) is a Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Aries, having had plenty of life’s experiences, some dangerous, in short time as it darts from one to the next, has to be impressed, or they have already left the party. What you think is exciting may be nothing to them! Libra enjoys considering one facet of a matter, then another, then another. Aries has already done what they considered for a fraction of a second. Jupiter may have opinions, but they may be more mild mannered in Libra. However, the big truth may come out, much to Libra’s chagrin. Oops. Aries is passionate and fervent, not willing to have lengthy philosophical discussions. Jupiter is judge and Libra is law. Aries lives its own law. Aries already leaves Libra to its preferences. Libra needs to let Aries be their pure self. Some teaching of manners can work for about 5 minutes. Praise that!

Any of these factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologer for the whole picture!See the 2016 Special Edition Newsletter for upcoming Planetary Patterns! Make your changes count.

Aries ~ Fearless and Fine!

Aries Jane Goodall Chimp

Aries rules the head, our brain! We wonder about intelligence, consciousness, our place in the grand scheme of things. Undaunted, Jane went to Africa. Sun Mars conjunct and Uranus in Aries, April 3, 1934 Jane Goodall discovered amazing things that made breakthroughs in our thinking. Chimps had unique and individual personalities. They used tools.They had emotion, intelligence, and family and social relationships. They could understand us. These were enormous changes in our concepts about animals.

Some Ariens are heroic. They rise above circumstances, hardship, persist until they make it. From fry cook, prostitute, nightclub dancer and performer, April 4, 1928 Maya Angelou, civil rights activist, recited her poem “On the Pulse of Morning”, at President Bill Clinton’s inauguration, January 1993! In 2008 she  spoke at a rally for Barack Obama. She published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, and several books of poetry, and was credited with a list of plays, movies, and television shows spanning over 50 years. She received dozens of awards and more than 50 honorary degrees. She had come a long way. The profound courage of this woman brings tears to my eyes. She had Sun Jupiter conjunct and Uranus in Aries.

In challenging environmental times, Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore, Mar 31, 1948, stepped up after being Vice President to make the film based on his book An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It. Innovative Aries leaders often appear when they are needed. Besides being an Aries, Al Gore has a powerful Pluto Saturn Mars conjunction. 100% responsible and timely.

All these very different people faced the demons of common thought, life threatening situations. You can easily see that it may be true that some Aries are starters not finishers, but some are fighters to their dying breath, living profound lives. Those lives may not always be easy or comfortable. They take criticism and make some mistakes of their own, human like us all. I hope you forgive more than judge, help rather than hinder. Find a way to bless and support the good works that may be a bit beyond our mind of the moment. If you can’t lead yet, be a darn good supporter and follower.

Sentience is a living thing, steadily changing right along with every other facet of evolution every single minute. That is especially true these days with Uranus in Aries! Uranus has to do with Freedom, the freedom to spark the light of the Fire of Aries. Uranus rules flight, getting above, a more comprehensive point of view that changes as you fly! Uranus is awakening, enlightenment. Sentience is a truly keen alert perception, becoming conscious in a new way, more alive – maybe alive for the first time! Understanding, appreciation are part of the process. Entire communities worldwide are changing consciousness.

Lady Gaga, Leonardo da Vinci, Yelena Kondakova, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Cesar Chavez, Ravi Shankar are a few of the many phenomenal Ariens that have and will keep changing the world. Step up to your spot. BE.
