Aries 2019 Celestial HighLights

Aries ~ It’s Alpha Time!

Aries 2019 Bicycles Women Harper's Weekly 1868 Historic Wheels of Change

In the late 1800s women forayed into the world of bicycles, and into a new world!

In Alpha-Omega thinking, Alpha is the beginning! In Alpha dog thinking, it is undisputed leadership! One might be naive, inexperienced, innocent, wide-eyed with discovery and anticipation. Alpha power brooks no fear, expects instant obedience, no failure, true courage.

Spirited! It’s from the collective experience of celebrating leaders who have ‘risen’ from the dead, to the unique personal experience of our Kundalini awakening! There can be technically excellent leaders, supercharged athletes, or the ones who win the Spirit Award. All hold a vital place on the team.

1st responders have another form of zoomies! Aries weren’t born to sit…and wait… Walking meditations are best. They are firey on-their-feet adventurers, great come and go consultants with the latest information. Their clean senses serve them well to be in the right place at the right time and do the right thing. They ‘get’ the situation instantly and save us from the dragons!

‘First’ is the word! Without a thought Aries takes on what’s never been done before, seems natural to them, and often succeed. The time has come and whether they plant the seeds or do the deed, yippee! We’re up and running, surprised, pleased. If one person can take the chance, surely we can carry on for them, making their effort count.

Aries 2019 Sunrise Wildflowers Monument Valley by Lars Leber!Aries is THE Sunrise sign! The 0° Aries, first degree of the first sign, place in a natural, elemental astrology wheel. It is the Ascendant or Rising Sign. That is the Alpha position in any chart, no matter what sign it faced into when you were born. It is the Sunrise position, the place where the Sun ascends out of darkness, out of the Dreamtime! It is a fresh start every single day no matter what the weather. We are innovative, refreshed with clear new ideas! As Spring Equinox it symbolizes a balance point between spring and fall, sunrise and sunset, our self and others.

Above is the stunning Wildflowers at Sunrise – Monument Valley, Arizona by photographer Lars Leber. Order one, see it in big beauty at his site!

Besides being of the day’s fiery golden beginning, Aries colors are red and white. Red is for taking action, the blood of the lamb, the sacrifices we make to bring change, for courage to fight a good fight. White is for purity, to always be true in Spirit. Red and a bit of gold and white is for those orange California poppies, the sacred cups of Spring dew. Red and white is the sweetest of pinks like the Dorset poppies, the gentle loving version of red. Throw in a bit of blue with the red and you’ve got the lavenders and purples so common to many precious medicinal herbs.

Where we have Aries in our charts, is where our brain functions at top speed! Mars, the Aries planet, is where we take action, and our Ascendant/Rising Sign, first house, take action in the flavor of our signs there. Aries has to do with our head. Sometimes we bump it, other times, with quick reflexes, we duck the low hanging tree limb just in time. Many an Aries has a renowned collection of headgear, from remarkable hats, headbands, assorted caps, visors, helmets, headlamps. Their hair may be short and sleek or tied up to fit their fast lifestyle. It’s a heady life and they can have great determination, a force to be reckoned with!

While their brain rarely gets tired, their body might, but it’s hard to get them to slow down or stop. They prefer to refuel en route. Or they need frequent brisk rowdy exercise to keep that amazing brain pumped up to top flight awareness! Aries are often race winners, sprinters more than marathoners. Bicycling holds strong with them. It’s independent and non polluting. Aries are terrific mechanics when emergency repairs are needed whether it is their bike or another vehicle. High performance bars and drinks and minimal gear let them fly at top speed! Personal and planetary energy sourcing is important to them.

Historically, you might enjoy National Geographic‘s Wheels of Change: How Women Rode the Bicycle to Freedom (With a Few Flat Tires Along the Way). It tells the riveting story of how the two-wheel wonder pedaled forward the emancipation of women in late-nineteenth-century America and radically redefined the normative conventions of femininity. Aries would be thrilled to hear this. Independence is one of their keywords! And, LOL, it often gets us in trouble, as this old quote shows: “The bicycle is the devil’s advance agent morally and physically in thousands of instances.” Read more at Maria Popova’s Wheels of Change!

Romance is intense, exciting, swept-off-your-feet fast. Compatibility is necessary for a long lasting union. Ironically, compatibility can be boring pretty quickly. Aries do love challenges, but patience is an entirely different matter. Better to work on the same challenge together than on each other. Tempers and tantrums can happen. Aries get distracted easily as a new opportunity calls to them, person or project. Independent as they are, like Sagittarius and Aquarius, some never marry. You may be heartbroken, disappointed. But how could you help it? They are superb humans, specimens.

Encounters with these Beings are uplifting to many. They save your life. You vow to help others too. They wake you up with new valuable ideas. You take up the cause! They have a brilliant radiance. You didn’t know life could be so vibrant! They don’t think a thing of being physical, it’s natural. Suddenly you realize you could be too and you’re off to the gym, on a walk or racing up a hill! Their instincts are effortlessly phenomenal! Without even thinking, you learn to trust yours. And that smile! They knock you out. They laugh, grin impishly, tease you a bit. Too sweet not to think that over, but not for long. Next thing you know, you are smiling too.

That’s Alpha.

Aries 2019 Celestial Highlights!  

Aries 2019 Timeline!

March

20  Happy Aries & Spring Equinox! Full SuperMoon!
28  Mercury Direct!!

April

5    New Moon
19  AstroLogica Blue Moon, Full Pink Moon
20  Happy Taurus!

Aries Overview of Year to Come!

The unusual 2019 Aries claim to fame is 3 lunar events, TWO Full Moons! The first is the March 20 Spring Equinox Full Worm Moon at 0°, the second is the April 19 AstroLogical Blue Moon, Full Pink Moon at 29° Aries! The beginning and end! What a powerful start for our first sign of the Zodiac! Chiron is really feeling the excitement of being in his new sign Aries! He and Uranus are settling in and getting used to their new signs Aries and Taurus!

Mercury Retrograde turns Direct, forward, March 28! Time then to put the finishing touches on changes that have come up.

An impressive sequence of unusual aspects started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter/Saturn with Neptune are at 18 Pisces. The coming nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs! Saturn conjunct Pluto is precisely linked to the the powerful aspect, same degree and sign, most close to the 2020 Presidential Elections. Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Mercury acted as witness to the Ecliptic event and observer, documentarian of what he saw at that time and the results in the year following. Conjunct the Sun, the Transit of Mercury Eclipse, Mercury will be empowered by solar light, to express himself in the most radiant manner possible! People will listen. Mercury is the information gatherer, messenger. Mercury is strengthened to receive then report on Jupiter at the GALACTIC CENTER! He puts it in perspective, knows the meaning, intention, long term purpose! Mercury is the neighbor you know; Jupiter is, in this case, the galactic traveler, a fascinating impressive stranger!

Pluto was at the Ecliptic at 18 Capricorn 58 Rx. The Transit Mercury Eclipse will be sextile (opportunity) at 18 Scorpio 55 Rx. Mercury will move back to 11 SC 43 Rx when at the Galactic Center. Notice these are all Rx, retrograde. Retrograde means you have been there before and you will be again afterwards. It’s a 3 part cycle. Three chances. It’s good to get it right!

By November 8, 2019, all SIX of Jupiter’s and Saturn’s 2019’s outer planet aspects shall have been formed with Neptune in Pisces! Jupiter square Neptune, challenges, stirs up our dreams, makes us face misfortunes. At times we are discouraged, overwhelmed, or Pandora’s box opens and we are over the top with wishes, crazy for believing in such miracles! Yet there it is, we want to try! Be inspired, break free from old fears! Saturn sextile Neptune is a peerless appraiser, even ‘sees’ what is not visible! If he’s behind you, he is determined to get the job done. Inimitable! Forget sleeping in, get up and get going, one step at a time if necessary, but do it! Those SIX aspects finish just before the Nov 11, eleven, eleven, Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse and it’s sister aspect Nov 19 Jupiter at the Galactic Center. Our Neptune imagination is being primed, tested, found strong and receptive!

These profound events will be during Sun in Scorpio, Mercury retrograde in Scorpio. The transmissions are taken in deeply, churned like good butter. Since Mercury is mind, Jupiter meaning, we may not witness physical change, especially with such an aspect as exotic and from so far away as the Galactic Center, but our Soul doesn’t miss a trick! Changes will seem to unfold for no reason and one day we realize there has become a difference.

Rights fighter Aries, ever sensitive and reactive to changes of content, notices the Dec 2 entry of Jupiter into Capricorn is different this time. There is a more serious note, even an urgency. Education and immigration become more important than ever. With Jupiter’s entry into Capricorn there will be 3 outer planets in Capricorn until Saturn enters Aquarius March 31, 2020! Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn July 1, 2020, and again, there will be 3 in Capricorn until Saturn makes his final shift into Aquarius Dec 16, 2020. Saturn will be in his own, more conservative sign Capricorn for the presidential elections. Jupiter and Saturn are both high mountain lovers, so looks like it’s going to be fun for some! Jupiter will make the travel plans; Cap will build the lodge! Jupiter quickly sees potential, offers encouragement, gathers the backers. Capricorn is ace at putting the right pieces together with terrific timing. Successful champions! The job comes in early, and the results are impressive! See more about Jupiter in Capricorn!

And that brings us to Jan 12, 2020, Saturn conjunct Pluto and Mar 21, The Crown!

We are building to the 2020 Super Stellium! 3 outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto will all be in Capricorn! New Year Day opens with 5 planets in Capricorn! Mercury conjunct Jupiter, Jupiter conjunct Sun plus Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn! Jan 12 Saturn makes the exact 34 year conjunction with Pluto.

The CROWN! March 21 2020 When Saturn is about to leave Capricorn, the three outer planets, along with Mars, are in culmination, as close as they will get, all four in a 7 degree Stellium! Peter Novak has studied outer planet stelliums and found that in the last 2000 years, allowing a 5 degree range, there were only 23 three outer planet stelliums! Yes, if he had allowed 7 degrees, there would be more, but still, they are uncommon. See all about it

Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune are all in their own signs most of the Aries new year! See Jupiter in Sagittarius That’s a lot of pure strong energy. Jupiter and Neptune are in malleable signs, in astrological terms, mutable. They are flexible, adaptable. Jupiter goes into Capricorn Dec 2. Saturn in Capricorn stomps his foot and calls for responsibility and to abide by the rules and laws, honor each other, your parents, the boss, elders and ancestors! You have to show him how and why that change makes sense. He’s a good balance to those other two wayward wanderers enamored in a moment, sometimes for no good reason. They are enjoying the show while he wants to know what’s real, what is doable. Neptune in Pisces senses our weak spots, and with compassion, converts them to strengths. We become aware of our Soul’s purpose.

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Aries’s coming year they are exact twice in their new signs Aries/Taurus – June 30, 2019 and Feb 15, 2020 – at Valentine’s time! See more about Chiron/Uranus  

See the 2019 UPDATED Special Annual Edition Newsletter for making next year’s plans! Make your changes count.


Outer Planet Transits with Aries 2019 – March 2020!

St Patrick's Day Good Luck Shamrocks!

May good luck be with you wherever you go and your blessings outnumber the Shamrocks that grow!

OUTER PLANETS WITH ARIES – Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter

Outer planets are the long term movers. Pluto and Neptune move only 3 degrees a year. Uranus at 84 years, and Chiron at 51 years, are advancing about 4 degrees a year for now. Saturn takes 28/29 years to make its orbit, Jupiter only 12 years, a sign a year! Depending on astrological patterns, some ‘events’ in our lives take many years, where others may happen toot sweet, right on or very near the date the event is exact! Some ‘events’ are not physical, but in our minds or Spirits. No one might ‘see’ them but you. Complex planetary patterns may overlap each other or be singular and direct. Some repeat; others are once in a lifetime. Some people have aspects others never have. Others have had aspects you won’t have until much later while others have them late and yours happened while you were young. Your astrologer can help you with your personal timing, understanding and strategies, compare your chart with another’s.

PLUTO is still in Capricorn but is changed and still changing! Oct 30, 2018 it made the rare 248 year aspect, Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic and is now below the Ecliptic! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s path around earth! Pluto’s debris was lighted, declared to be outmoded, cleared away. He was not only cleared, but became free to be charged with energy beyond imagination! His healing powers have increased exponentially! He gave that very energy to Sun and the Light itself is now more clear and radiant! So fresh, this is a powerful time for all of us, but especially Capricorns because this HAPPENED IN THEIR SIGN! Those of you with chart factors at or very close to 18 degrees, especially in Scorpio or Capricorn, have also been cleared and infused! Some will go to the Light, others might need some time out to be able to stand up again, while some are on their feet charging! None of these factors, Capricorn, Scorpio nor Pluto are light weights. It takes a lot to impress them, and they can withstand high intensity, but this tested even them.

Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn is a harmonious earth and water mix, a symbolic sextile aspect. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 20 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, mighty healing and miraculous survival.  Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

In Aries’ year, Pluto is moving from 20 to 24 degrees. Capricorn squares Aries, and Pluto’s MO is just about opposite, so it is challenging for Aries. Pluto is deep and internal, protective, the Underworld. Aries is protective, a rights fighter, but on the ground, here and now, face to face! Pluto will use money, Aries is hands on, spiritedly will use fists if necessary, nevermind the size of the adversary! They have tons of courage and surprise often takes the day! No one expected that! Pluto in Capricorn will advocate psychology, going around to the back door, taking you to jail if things get out of hand. Not that they don’t admire you. They are often police and want to keep the peace and prevent further ado. Aries is there to show them that there are times you just have to take responsibility right now and sort the rest out later. Pluto may work with a lingering situation for years, while an Aries first responder saves your life in a second! We are grateful for both. They want the same things, their methods and timing are just very different. Talk it out and see where you each can do your best together.

NEPTUNE is in his own sign Pisces! He is 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 sand polishing cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors 15 to 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Aries is Neptune’s sign’s neighboring sign! As Neptune ends the zodiac, Aries/Mars begin the next round! Aries is so inspired he wants the Neptune/Pisces dream to come true right now! Neptune can be ponderous or sweep the island clean! Aries is generally slim and trim, spontaneously fast on his feet and pushes to find ways to carry the vision to new places, begin anew! New better tools and ways are thrilling to Neptune as his dreams come true much faster than expected! A champion advocate is now leading the pack!

URANUS, Aquarius’s planet, will cover 0 to 6 Taurus! March 6, 2019 Uranus entered Taurus the final time. Taurus invents simple. For some it either feels too close for comfort, or it’s the most fun you’ve had in a long time! What was ordinary life suddenly isn’t! There are exotic options free for the taking! Walking barefoot tickles your feet, you become so aware of the charge of earth and life, that Earth herself is so very alive! You may never have been bored before and now you are?! What is this feeling?! It could be pretty darn heady at first. Maybe the leap is best now, otherwise you never will! Or maybe you need to stay steady and not get carried away at all. But somehow it seems a time of wild chance that needs to be taken advantage of. Put some fallback funds in a safe place, get yourself a headband and go for it! Yoga was never so good! Divine body electric!

Aries is delighted with the changes afoot, maybe ecological since Taurus rules Mother Earth and Uranus is evolutionary. Aries loves new and is cheering Uranus on! Again, there are different methods. In Taurus, at times, there may be a lay-down-and-wait approach, a lengthy pondering of possibilities. Aries has got the fiery cattle prod out for just such occasions! He dances around, takes you to see what’s been done, and how. Then oddly, Uranus, a lightning quick planet, sits again with the matter, thoroughly making considerations. But his ideas are on the mark, so some are willing to make the wait. Aries is still scouting the surroundings, finding more solutions and certainly won’t always wait. Some things just have to be put in place and tried. It will be a bit of a push/pull. Taurus sometimes lacks self-confidence, just has a slower pace, but is thankful nonetheless for successes. Taurus helps Aries ground, be centered while in action. Taurus is aware of natural cycles, breath and motion. Aries may inspire Taurus, and Taurus gains momentum. But, soon, Aries moves on to the next option, leaving Uranus to maintain and modify to the next generations!

CHIRON went into Aries Feb 18 for 9 years, through 2027. What a fabulous time for Aries! Chiron will heal him, teach him & show him how to teach, maybe get him into a business, maybe bring him a mate! He and Chiron could become partners in a new venture! Chiron in Aries wants you to have a better life right now! Right now is exactly Aries’ pace! Chiron commiserates all too well since he also carries a wound that won’t heal. Many Aries understand because many of them have had an accidental injury of some kind along the way, physical or a broken heart. Considering conditions in the world today, we will likely be grateful for a push from Aries. Aries inspires, get us going into brave new arenas! Chiron looks for ways to help make the new ways acceptable. So many matters need uplifting, many people need a boost in their courage, to know that someone is taking point and they can gather, have hope! Tremendous healing is needed. Most of all how to heal these matters is needed. Aries has refreshing ideas worth standing up for! Please constantly hold our brave healers in the Light.

Chiron will cover the very earliest degrees, 1 to almost 6°, of Aries this year. It will activate any factors you have in or very close to those degrees. See more

Chiron has been and will be traveling very closely to the same degrees as Uranus, the Aquarian planet, but in different signs! This has been going on since 2008 and continues through 2021. Chiron has become more Aquarian-like and Uranus has taken on some shamanistic qualities. See more The last 10 years, they connected in Pisces and Aries. Now there will be added flavor as Uranus enters Taurus, first a shift in the foundation, then, in time, a holding steady.

If you have Chiron in those degrees of Aries, you will be having your 51+/- year Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed, your teaching skills improved. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching and discoveries will be inspiring, especially about how our minds work. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too! Things are a lot different than they were 51 years ago!

SATURN builds from 13 to 29 Capricorn.

Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. Many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better, or you start your own business!


Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 13 to 27 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through February 20, 2020! There will be more traditional endeavors.

  1. On your first Return – ages 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself.
  2. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, your retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned 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. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have acquired! It’s a time to honor, be honored!
  3. Around age 87, many are now experiencing their 3rd Saturn Return! Things don’t bother them as much. They enjoy what they want to, sometimes something they always wanted to do! There are losses of friends and loved ones. Health matters more – they are often quite brave. Family can mean a lot or if alone, friends do. Age can mean honors, even just for making it that long! Capricorn is the sign of time, elderhood. This is generally a strong time for them.

A Saturn Return in Capricorn can be a wee challenge for an Aries! Aries knows that rules were made to be broken, as much as Saturn/Capricorn knows they must be enforced, integrity intact! Aries is a creative inspiring action oriented, try-it-out-and-see sign! Law and order with some leniency makes sense. Otherwise we would all be the same, discoveries never made. Both are needed. Saturn can also make a safe place and time for Aries to explore. However, there are times when spontaneous action just is, just happens. It is the state of zero hindrance that makes the ultimate invention possible! Be wise and also let life happen. Aries doesn’t always think in terms of, oh God, I’m taking a chance. They simply respond to the spark! And there are times it’s a good darn thing they do! Yep. They do make mistakes, but 99 point, they have profound instincts. Plus, they recover quickly!

Saturn in it’s own sign, Earth sign Capricorn, is a force! Young people conduct themselves seriously and old people are more healthy, younger than others their age, strong and cheerful! Saturn adds to the desire to do good work. Saturn recognizes natural law, so its works stand the test of time. Timing is one of its fortes. Steady production, the right people in the right places at the time, being on time, are all assets. They are not only architects, builders and realtors, but understand science and structures – concrete, stones, glass. They can build roads and railways, bridges, homes, skyscrapers! They can do demolition as well as renovation! Saturn is expert at sustainability and conservation – more done with less effort, use less materials, smaller and stronger, for less cost, build tiny homes communities for homeless and seniors, contribute huge land grants to establish legendary preserves. As seniors they don’t quit. They become mentors, and with experience on their side, use new ideas of the times to start the latest businesses! They may be late starters sometimes, but often their later years are truly golden – art awards, health successes, the happiness of long marriages and plenty of grandkids!

Saturn/Capricorn are earth to Aries Fire! Earth can put fire out or be the support for it, like for a campfire. Capricorn has things to do in a timely fashion and cherishes Aries workers. Aries is smart, fast, unafraid, and a great leader! Capricorn inspires Aries to get meaningful work done, build lifesaving structures, like after a disaster. Aries points out ways things can be done better. Capricorn makes sure there is a secure foundation. Cap needs to ask, let Aries know the deadlines, then get out of his way. No hovering. Check ins, yes. Aries is tough and Capricorns get more confidence seeing how Aries throw themselves into a job. Put your Aries mates on the new jobs, or they will get bored and find one themselves. Their phenomenal work gets them noticed, often have a rep and are in demand. You might just change roles, let them be the boss, and go with them! And you better keep up!

JUPITER moves from 14 Sagittarius to 22 Capricorn. Jupiter is a big fire planet, entered his own fire sign Sagittarius as of Nov 8 2018! Jupiter stays in Sag the majority of 2019, until moving into Capricorn Dec 2.

Jupiter/Sagittarius never fails to impress. It can be a hero, and there are plenty of those at this time. It can be a knowledge or wisdom of an exalted teacher and that might be your local high school teacher. It can be a journey of great beauty or a maximum athletic achievement. A boundless love, a loving kindness, a gift, sharing. All these touch our hearts and make a story to remember. Fortunes gained and lost, wagers won and lost, starting from nothing to making it to the top of the mountain! And if it’s bad, it can be really bad. No thieving or robbing. While traveling and your money is low, no taking something because you need it ‘more than they do.’ Big stories yes, cons no. No ‘accidental’ slander, bearing false witness, prejudice. Stay with respectful truth and honesty. Keep the long term in mind. Keep your higher ethics in place, morality intact; visit the sacred place when you need to. Keep learning in every direction.

Jupiter in Sag, double fire, can be fun as all get out for fiery Aries! What one doesn’t think of the other does. Jupiter has the luck, Aries is a daredevil and they get away with it. They take bets and win! Fast cars, fast horses, surfing anywhere! They travel swiftly, move on quickly. They separate happily, meet up later somewhere else or not. Both are independent. If they take up a cause together, Jupiter is holding meetings ana passing out pamphlets or handbills. Mars is out setting up the stage, gathering equipment from the locals. They can speak separately or team speak, or sponsor a speaker to be proud of! Jupiter may want to publish or stop at the University, but Aries is likely off on another venture, biking cross country, at an athletic program at a gym or starting another resort!

Jupiter in Capricorn makes work the most fun it ever was! You could be the visitor who is remembered for all the work you did! You might be a random traveler, a business consultant, the foreigner who was on a mission to help the people. Jupiter will help you jazz up your home, give you such good advice you can’t help doing it! They might volunteer and you join them to make some kind of profound difference. Don’t keep your lucky Jupiter charm. They need to travel, check out the territories. If you hire them, send them to the training seminars furthest away or send them to teach it! If they have too much routine, they will run away. Poof. Gone. Import/exports they are involved with might work well for you too. Their writings may inspire you to start an outstanding business newsletter or monthly report people count on. Jupiter can overdo, so know your personal limits. If you have had doldrums, Jupiter can cheer you up like a champ. You are encouraged because they act like you can do it, and it’s truth! See more 

Jupiter in Capricorn can exaggerate the rules, and Aries may quickly size up the scene and keep right on going. There may be a temporary alliance if Aries figures he needs a little structure for a while. Keep a loose rein. Share the info, no smothering with expectations ‘for his own good.’ Let Aries find his own way. Aries is a quick learner, maybe faster than you can deliver. Don’t be confused. Keep on giving as you can. If he chooses to be with you, remember he made that choice and it’s an honor. Be yourself and don’t be rushed. Aries may be looking to start a business and sees you have some of that expertise. S/he may be quite grateful for what you share, even when he is fidgety. Take frequent breaks outside if possible. When you are speaking, keep it tight and to the point. When they leave, it’s done. They aren’t always up for lengthy discussions afterwards. Trust that they got what they needed. If it is a personal relationship, that may or may not work for you. Be clear about your own needs. Let go if that’s best. Admire that good looking person from afar and wish them Godspeed. If it works well, how blessed!

If you have factors in Sagittarius and/or Capricorn in your chart at these degrees, this could be prime time to visit the positive areas where they are on your AstroLocality map. See your AstroLocality specialist! Not all map lines are positive; some are positive only at certain portions along their length, some are positive appearing but have other hidden factors. They may be favorable at one time and not another.

If your Jupiter is in 14 Sag to 22 Capricorn, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. The experience you have will depend on how Jupiter is situated in your chart and how other current planetary positions apply to your chart or don’t. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, or could make it wildly abundantly better! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships. Long lasting mergers and good marriages are possible.

Happy Birthdays, Dear Aries! Blessed be in your new year!

Mercury Retrograde Odeleite Portugal Blue Dragon River

The Odeleite in the municipality of Castro Marim, Portugal, aka “The Blue Dragon River!” In China this traveler’s image went viral! The mythical beast symbolizes force, quality and good fortunes. Super auspicious! 

The fiery red upper reaches lead to the elegant blue below as the river widens to the lower lake. Ascending or descending, what a journey! What amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. What’s behind is out of sight, a memory, what’s ahead is a mystery! Bends in the river can slow flood flow. Gives us time to think, recalibrate, prepare. Much like our retrogrades that weave through life!

Mercury 2018 has the standard 3 Mercury Rxs with a fire sign emphasis. Fire by nature is somewhat ungovernable. Aries just gets there fast and first, zip! Leo is himself and no other. Sagittarius will not be stopped or owned. Fire can be untouchable, scare you witless, be devastating, purifying, or warms your very Soul. It raises you up when you are down. Starshine lights your nights and the Sun shines on your day.

This Aries Retrograde cycle, Mercury hosts the second Jupiter sextile Pluto April 15, the day before Mercury turns forward, Direct! Mercury will be in its 8 day Station, appearing still in the sky 4 days before and after its turn, steeping in the sextile, witnessing, observing, collecting data, selecting the good points of the lucky sextile to take along to use. In Aries, Mercury will be super alert to nuances that make a quick difference. Thinking skills will improve, new tools acquired, inspiration grows 10 fold!

It also sets Chiron up to make a smooth entry into Aries for the first time in 51 years April 17! Chiron has been in Pisces, a much quieter sign than Aries, more the intuitive observer. Scintillating Mercury will be dwelling in the first half of Aries during the retrograde getting us all more used to and jumpstarting this Aries style of thinking and immediate action response. Uranus has been in Aries for many years now, but we are used to it. This Mercury then Chiron sequence is quite timely. Mercury will be in station (a seeming standstill) for 6 days preceding Chiron’s sign change. Mercury’s direction change at 4 Aries is an important position. Those of you with chart factors from 2 to 6 degrees will be holding information Chiron needs. Pay attention to the gist of your thoughts and how you think them. See more

This will be increased in April as Mercury sequences with Mars aspects. Mars is the Aries planet! It’s hot action! Aries is fast and first, a sprinter and bike rider. Loves doing under its own steam. It helps at emergencies and births. People get started in a new life when Aries is around and there’s no going back! Relationships may be brief, quickly renewed and just as quickly left again. You better like ’em the way they are; they aren’t famous for change. They are just independent. Mercury is the thinker, so for some, this will be an exultant time of the mind! Doesn’t matter which way Mercury is going, forward or backward, it’s a flash! Each direction is enjoyably challenging, Aries is no coward, not ever! A new vantage point is delightful and intoxicating! Great to try new things and angles! It may be good to have a financial manager you enjoy to guide the enterprises through the narrows. One enterprise is not enough or boredom sets in. And that will never last long with most Aries! The manager has to be clever enough to talk with you rather than tell you what to do. Aries hot spots are the head, the eyes. Infections, fevers, cuts, punctures, bleeding. Most illnesses are crises, not chronic. If your Aries is overweight and lying about, they likely need appreciation, encouragement and inspiration! Going up or down the retrograde turns, they will soon be curious, then just get outta their way, LOL! The switch has been flipped!

Dates, Degrees & Signs

The three part cycle starts Mar 8 at 4 Aries 46. March 22 Mercury retrogrades at mid Aries, 16 Aries 54. April 15, Mercury turns forward, April 16 Jupiter sextiles Pluto the second time. The entire cycle finishes May 3. Aries is a Cardinal sign, gets things moving. Mercury will stand up to other cardinal signs, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn – the signs of parents and mates. In Aries, fire sign, it pushes earth signs Taurus and Virgo. It has an in with Virgo, Virgo being  Mercury’s second sign. Might even stampede them though Virgo has seen his type before. Mercury will liven the cauldrons of water signs Scorpio and Pisces. It jumps up with other fire signs Leo and Sagittarius, though Leo may not take kindly to being rousted from his lionly nap. Mercury in Aries sparks with the air signs Gemini (Mercury’s first sign), and Aquarius! How high can we fly?! And they don’t stop talking! It would take years to cover what’s on their minds! Mercury in Aries thinks in action. He may take a group on walkabout! Several of these combinations may go a bit rowdy!

If the Retrograde connects with your chart, consider these options!

Prepare well for the retrograde. Get mechanical items serviced – Aries especially involves vehicles, bicycles, mechanical items. In general it means phones, new apps installations and learn to use them with ease, computers, internet.

During the retrograde, unplanned trips and ventures are likely. Though it is unArieslike, schedule to keep tabs on what becomes a new moving object in your life! Be sure your important papers are securely stowed, keep valuables and sentimentals with you. Keys, glasses and bike locks secure, clothing can’t blow away. No setting things on the top of your car. Change your appt book right away when there are adjustments, call in advance to make sure they made the change at their end. Make follow up appts because we know automatically things will require further adjustments. It isn’t done until the 3rd phase is done May 3!

Take big promises with a grain of salt. Aries can be spontaneous and off on a new project in seconds! One great link leads to another! If it’s better for all, go for it. During Mercury Rx, give the benefit of the doubt.

Never be afraid of a retrograde! It stirs the pot. Even as cherished ideas, go up in flames, another door opens. Again, something better has the space to happen. Gather yourself. Grab it with your teeth and shake it for the best to fall out! Don’t let go until it does! Plan to use every precious bit of information that comes your way. The computer goes down? Get a better one, upgrade, get one better suited to your needs. A vacation falls through? Choose a better time and something more potent than your previous choice. Really look at it. You and circumstances have changed since you made that first plan. The dog eats your script? What you write next is surprisingly so much better! You were devastated at first, but now actually glad that happened! Your life will get better. Give it reasonable time and be proactive. The outcome depends partly on YOU! Be there!

After the Retrograde! In the third phase, the direct part when the retrograde is finishing, tidy up. Take a look at the devastation and debris. You did it! How much of that did you need anyway? Reorganize. Keep it light. Cherish what you are left with, polish it up, integrate it well. Make further plans with what goes well with you. Follow up on the best ideas. Get connected with some good people going your way, ones who can keep pace with you! Grab one or two or three experienced consultants in your field and hear them all out. Merge some of your and their ideas and plans. Not all of their particular options may be ones you use now, maybe later, but they get you thinking and started! Yes! It’s likely to turn out much better than you expected! Collaboration makes things multiply! Each of you can promote the main project from your special vantage points!

The Jupiter sextile Pluto, Chiron into Aries, and the April Mars aspects specially imprint this Retrograde cycle! Here’s the timetable:

Mar

8    Mercury Retrograde first phase starts
10  Mercury square Saturn 1st of 3
17  St Patrick’s New Moon, Mars into Capricorn
19  Mercury conjunct Venus one time sweet day
20  Sun in Aries, Spring Equinox! Four planets now in Aries!
22  Mercury Retrograde
31  Full Blue Moon

Apr

2    Mars conjunct Saturn
4    Mercury square Mars
5    Mercury square Saturn 2nd of 3
14  JUPITER SEXTILE PLUTO
15  Mercury Direct, turns forward on New Moon! Reset!
17  CHIRON INTO ARIES 
19  Sun into Taurus!
23  Mars sextile Jupiter in Scorpio
25  Mercury square Saturn 3rd of 3
26  Mars conjunct Pluto in Capricorn

May  3   Entire Mercury Retrograde cycle finishes!

The last retrograde, in Sagittarius, Mercury conjuncted Saturn three times. The only repetitive aspect Mercury in Aries forms this retrograde cycle is its square to Saturn three times. It’s as if it is putting on the brakes, and we know how fast these fire signs can go! Have your brakes checked to see they are working well. Check your thinking to see if you are keeping priorities, staying on track. Allow enough time for the usual retrograde delays, breakdowns. Get a little more rest because there could be more stress than usual. You may alternate hot and cold. Layers are good.

There are two Mars activation sequences in April. The two sequences are tied together because Mars conjuncts the two planets in Capricorn, Saturn and Pluto.

  1. April 2 Mars conjuncts Saturn. It can be a tired time, a bit down, accidental, fraught with delays and overworked. Mars wants Saturn to try his new ideas! Saturn likes his routine, but is ultimately practical and knows some ideas will be more productive. He listens to this upstart because they are in the same sign and speak the same language. He sees Mars is being careful. Yes, implementing the new ideas will take a bit more time in the beginning, but Mars in Capricorn, Saturn’s own sign, is good at what he does, is faster than most and quick to see what needs to be done, does it on the spot! Breakthrough! April 4 and 5, Mercury squares first Mars then Saturn. Things could get a bit grumpy, depressed, but Mercury is the messenger and is in Mars’ own sign Aries! So they can talk and then, perhaps, even together, clear up any delays due to Saturn’s technicalities. What could have failed may come through with reasonable persistence, respect and adjustments in the beginning. More can come later.
  2. The big sequence starts as Mercury turns Direct April 15 at the New Moon! Double new beginnings! April 14 Jupiter sextiles Pluto followed by Mars aspects well after Mercury is on his way forward! Mercury is making final decisions and shifts, mature in the cycle! Mars sextiles Jupiter the 23rd, Mercury squares Saturn the 25th, Mars conjuncts Pluto the 26th! Mercury square Saturn ties to the April 2 Mars conjunct Saturn. The rules and regs still need consideration. The new ideas probably need a review. Mars sextile Jupiter, conjunct Pluto reiterates and keeps the lucky Jupiter sextile Pluto cooking! Philosophy is great, action takes it home! Mars reminds Jupiter what the project is, why it’s important to DO! Mars jumps seriously in Pluto’s cauldron reminding him of his financial commitment! Without the $, Jupiter can’t get or keep it rolling! It’s worth the effort and Mars is willing to work for it. LAST is Chiron into Aries, while the Sun is in Aries, April 17! Perfect!

Aries is always up on the latest, inspired and leads the crew to install those newfangled contraptions that make your work easier, increase the returns. They are great consultants off to their next installation!

Keep your chin up, eyes open, listening ears on and get to it!

Happy Birthdays, Geminis!

Gemini rising Frenchman Marcel Marceau was perhaps the greatest mime, the Master of Face, performed professionally worldwide for over 60 years. He let his body talk, referring to mime as the "art of silence." 

Gemini rising Frenchman Marcel Marceau was perhaps the greatest mime, the Master of Face, performed professionally worldwide for over 60 years. He let his body talk, referring to mime as the “art of silence.”

An actor is a mime/mimic who talks! Silent film comedians like Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, and Buster Keaton learned the craft of mime in the theatre, but through film, they have had a profound influence on mimes working in live theatre decades after their deaths. Indeed, Chaplin may be the best-documented mime in history. He had Neptune conjunct Pluto in Gemini.

Lucille Ball was 100% expression! If her words didn’t get you, her expressions did! As one person said ‘She was naturally gifted with comic timing and fearless self expression.’ She had no problem to mime Charlie Chaplin miming! Mercury, the Gemini planet, grand trined her Moon in Capricorn/Mars in Taurus. Mercury quintiled, 71 degrees – 1/5 of a circle, her Pluto in GEMINI! She was truly gifted in communications, charismatic!

Robin Williams mimed in New York City’s Central Park, and while studying at Juilliard. He worked outside The Museum of Modern Art for some extra cash! He could say so much without saying a word! What an expressive human being! His Mercury, the planet of Gemini was exactly at the apex of his chart.

Mimic, mime, is a form of twinism.

As I have scanned through some other famous mimes, Pisces and Scorpio and their planets Neptune and Pluto come up strongly. Pisces/Neptune is the ability to flow, become one with another. Just like the Pisces fishes are bound as one, reflecting each other, they are like the twins of Gemini bound in their genetics. They are the ultimate empath signs, the first and last mutable signs. Scorpio/Pluto have the utmost capacity for silence, ninjas. Their silence removes a distracting layer. Rather than hearing, we are reduced to and focused only on seeing. It intensifies that connection. They can instantly cut to the core, see us deep. Though they are not speaking, they have our full attention, magical hypnotism!

Blessings to all who show us your face that we may see ours!

Gemini 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

The Moon conjuncts Jupiter exactly on June 3 at 6:44 PM Pacific! It will be beautiful that evening! See them and Corvus, the Crow, just below them.

The Moon conjuncts Jupiter exactly on June 3 at 6:44 PM Pacific! It will be beautiful that evening! See them and Corvus, the Crow, just below them.

Bruce McClure at EarthSky says ‘the waning gibbous moon passes 2o north of the planet Jupiter, the brightest starlike object in the evening sky. What a sight! The moon and Jupiter pop out first thing at dusk, and they’ll be fun to spot in the darkening sky. A bright star nearby, Spica in the constellation Virgo, will come into view to the east of the moon and Jupiter as night deepens.

There’s no way to mistake Spica for Jupiter – or vice versa. Jupiter is by far the brighter object. That’s not to say that Jupiter is the more luminous of these two celestial lights. It’s not. Jupiter, being a relatively close planet, shines because it reflects the light of the sun.

Spica is a distant star, or actually two stars in one. Spica, which shines by its own light, is vastly more intrinsically luminous than Jupiter. It’s just much, much farther away. If Spica were at the sun’s distance from Earth, it’d visually be 1,900 times brighter than our sun. Or, another way of putting it, the sun at Spica’s distance of 250 light-years would appear 1/1,900th as bright as Spica. You’d definitely need an optical aid to see our sun this far away.

By Sunday night, June 4, you’ll see the moon has moved closer to Spica on the sky’s dome.’

Thank you to Bruce McClure and EarthSky.org!

Don’t forget to make special arrangements for viewing the August 21 Eclipse!

Gemini 2017 TimeLine!

October 23 2016 started a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that are the primary aspects of 2017! We have had Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Jupiter square Pluto ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24! The ‘Holiday Four, plus the very close Jupiter sextile Saturn, 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. Taurus has the last three of this reverse set, the April 30 Saturn square Chiron, and the last two back to back, Jupiter inconjunct Neptune station May 17 to July 4, and Saturn trine Uranus! The final set of six starts July 4 in forward order, finishing 11/11!

Gemini 2017 has no new outer planet aspect combinations. Rather, in the Jupiter inconjunct Neptune station, for 48 days, we stay in contemplation, a continuous exploration of myths and miracles! We take steps off the main course, venturing into the relativity of causation – how we were created, how we ourselves are the cause of our future. Walking through the invisible veils that once held us, becomes a way of life. We are always fresh, know the perfect vantage point for clear vision.

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017.
Saturn will be in Sagittarius until Dec 19, 2017.

Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Gemini 2017 –  June 2018!

Samsung Galaxy X will have a foldable technology as edge technology is finished now. It will be the most exciting smartphone for 2017.

Samsung Galaxy X will have foldable technology – The latest rumors suggest we might see a Galaxy X prototype this year, but may not see the final phone until 2019.

Four outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter, are changing signs in Gemini’s year to come. What we do now will be backdrop and foundation for our future moves. Stay tuned in! 

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! They are intrigued by this Gemini with all their questions and ideas. Gemini can be impressively intelligent, quick, fearless and clever. In league with Pluto, they can spot flaws in the system. Gemini is ideal for darting in for investigative research or reporting. Give them a wide range or they will be off to more interesting projects.

Neptune is in its own sign, moves from 11 to 16 Pisces. It is 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. Neptune blurs and blends while Gemini makes a clean sharp focus, brightens the colors! They both use images, Neptune adds the music. What Gemini might miss with his visual ability and fast thinking, Neptune will relax to a deeper keen listening, an empathic talent, that finds subsurface or more remote knowledge. Gemini might feel out to sea, but it’s only another facet of mind to experiment with.

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 0 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! Gemini is delighted by this impetuous wild card player! They have met their match and then some! No boredom with this combination! Fire and electricity make the world go around, and Gemini is collecting mega data to feed the Team! The Team helps them stand back to see the great panorama of humanity before them, to see collective shifts right before their eyes! Gemini’s work has taken on so much more meaning! Extraordinary friendships will kindle amazing new interests.

When Uranus gets into Taurus it’s going to be quite different for you Geminis. There will be a slowing, a stabilizing. Ideas will be more solid, strengthened. Weak spots will be more finely calibrated, balanced, recharged. Your life may seem less complicated and maybe that brings you relaxation, time to observe what has become and needs steady tending. Since you were part creator, you won’t mind. It’s a time to treasure what you have done. Tai Chi might become part of your life, or you find a superb acupuncturist! Mind and fingers and touch. A loyal unity. Uranus will be in Taurus through April 2026, activating your chart in various ways, bit by bit, as it goes through the degrees.

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. Chiron sees Gemini is a quick learner, and in Pisces, Chiron knows what to offer when. Gemini has a voluble, versatile, distractible mind. You have to speak quickly and be in sync, and it’s good if it’s something your Gemini hasn’t heard before! Be ready to let then know succinctly why it is important, and have your next points ready to go in a sequence that makes sense. That can be a little difficult if Pisces is in the dreamy mode, or a piece of cake to Pisces the ultimate sign of making intuitive insightful adjustments, mind melding! Healing may occur for Geminis when Chiron sees errors in the way their mind works, patterns of thinking that don’t work, or their mind gets so busy they miss the big picture or have a hard time listening. That could be difficult for both of you at first, but you Geminis take it easy. It can be to your great advantage to develop more communications skills.

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! Aries will be more at Gemini’s pace and Gemini loves fresh and bright! Geminis may find themselves writing inspiring health articles, about new business ventures or successful athletes and heroes, riding their bike to work!

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through June 2018. Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017!

In Sagittarius Saturn is opposite Gemini. You may find your travel budget lacking for the time being, or may find perfect low budget opportunities! Travelers may try to take over, or you may sell your business for a profit. Education may need to wait, but is still a good investment as soon as possible. Saturn has some realistic proposals that may help you focus and save time. The plans look well founded. Time and costs need working out. Perhaps there’s a need to reign in diversifying for awhile. Instead, give the most attention to your best seller, concentrate on what gives the best return per expenses. Reach across the table for the excellent advice of mentors. Gather your data for publishing later. See an editor and line up an attorney who specializes in what you do!

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.

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! Gemini businesses may be any kinds of communications, consulting – think tanks, working with your hands, medical specialties involving the lungs/airways/nose – shoulders, looking younger! Saturn will want adjustments – more precision, science based techniques, attention to critical timing, sometimes working with elders, laws. Fathers and bosses likely will make more demands, you feel your age. Saturn offers tips for more efficiency, production increases! Saturn will be in Capricorn until Dec 2020.

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. 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 13 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. Gemini another air sign, loves greeting all the people, is excited about all kinds of art, wants to make a portfolio! Poetry, news blogs, marketing advertising are encouraged by Jupiter who wants to get the word out as far as possible, recruit new links, have many stations! Gemini, a diversity specialist, is quite willing to be a go between between go betweens! Jupiter sees a greater picture, and Libra is quite worldly compared to Gemini of siblings and neighbors, so the new dimension is to see the brothers and sisters of the world! As twins, they are psychic, quick to pick up on how we are more alike than different! There will be lots of questions with new answers!

Jupiter in Scorpio tweaks Gemini from off center opposite. Jupiter still wants all those communications, education/teaching type things to come true. In Scorpio the emphasis becomes funding, healing, deeper relationships. Gemini may be thrown off stride as requests are make to back up what they say, record their source, meet deadlines. Jupiter may ask for more material, and Scorpio can be extreme, intense, even asking for a journalistic approach that could have dangerous consequences. Gemini is the sign of breathing, and may not take that job! Jupiter wants total well being, and Scorpio is ever the healer. If you have been neglecting your state of mind, now might be the perfect time to see the therapist. Clean up is good. Someone may come along who loves you more than you ever knew was possible. If Gemini feels loved too much, they feel the loss of a substantial amount of their freedom, they may be blessed to see how love can be, but pass on this particular style.

If your Jupiter is in these Libra or Scorpio degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 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 coming Outer Planet Sign Changes Timetable:

Gemini Spreads the Light through the Word!

Gemini Planets Hawaiian Tapestry Jay Wilson

Hawaiian Tapestry by artist and architectural designer, Jay Wilson – Mercury, Moon & Uranus in Gemini. Take some time out to reflect on the rich and royal tapestry of your life. Photo credit: Daniel Ramirez

Gemini is an intricate sign of many dimensions, natural geometry, a galaxy of colors, the ultimate mindfulness, magical intelligence! Gemini’s are not just twins, they are the Magicians of Diversity! Mimic and mime, the multiplicity of becoming one with another, and another and another. Shifting quicksilver sands, breezes wafting an effervescent mind. They are not just male or female, but androgynous. They are often ambidextrous. Because their approach to life is so unusual, they make surprising connections in fractions of a second! They ride the kaleidoscope of life!

Their treasure of communication lights our hearts! It can be through speaking and listening. It can be a kind touch of healing – hugs or holding hands a transference of pure energy. It can be a shared breath. A common thought when we each say the same thing at the same time. Can you imagine being a twin? What it would be like seeing your own face looking back at you? What if you were suddenly a twin, right now?! Would it be mimic and mime, or a automatically genuine rapport beyond words? How would it feel to see things mirrored about yourself that you might not like? What if you both fall in love with the same person?

Supreme communication can be a blessing, a communion. Admiration, appreciation. Reverence. A swearing in, a diploma on parchment. A book that expresses feelings so real we forget we are reading because we become one with it, sharing another Soul’s gift of perception. Awe at the recognition of beauty – art treasures, the unbearable beauty of a baby, another person, a pet, their givingness. Amazement that takes our breath away! A proposal, commitment of marriage or devotion.

Gemini uses the daily breath to wish each other well, sharing getting off to work and school. Don’t forget your lunch, Honey, see you later. With couples it is the ‘I love you’ that makes a difference in our hearts.

Gemini holds the voice of the sacred prayer for safety, good health and healing. It is the words through the Dream Catcher that carry our hopes on the breezes of Spirit. It’s the call to attention to the important things in life, always and everywhere. Gemini gathers the voices and gains a higher perspective. Many voices in consensus have greater power through unity.

Gemini spreads the Light through the word. It goes out across the world and back again enriched and transformed. It shares the goodness we find. Chapter by chapter it tells our story. Information is the sacred tapestry, woven by the village, all connected. It represents and links the cultures of all beings, Humanity.

Gemini spreads the Light through the word. It’s not what you say, but how and when you say it. It’s a Gift we give each other. Whether you need to tell someone something good about them, or stand kindly for the Truth, never neglect to speak your heart in a good way. Make that phone call.

Deep breath. Be still. Listen with your heart….

The lyrics of the opening verse of ‘Tapestry’ by Carole King. Ms King has Jupiter in Gemini and Gemini’s planet Mercury in the same degree as her Sun!

My life has been a tapestry
Of rich and royal hue;
An everlasting vision
Of the ever-changing view;
A wond’rous woven magic
In bits of blue and gold;
A tapestry to feel and see;
Impossible to hold.

Happy Birthdays, Tauruses!

Celebrate our Home, Mother Earth!

Taurus Oaks Murphy Meadow by Ger Erickson

Ger Erickson’s foggy dawn image has 3 varieties of magnificent oaks at Murphy Meadow, Round Valley Regional Preserve, Contra Costa County CA. December 5, 2016. Oak is Taurus’s official tree. See image full size

From Ger’s sweeping image to Tom Egan’s tiny desert plant smaller than a quarter, the width of a few grains of sand….the Barstow Woolly Sunflower, Eriophyllum mohavense, both are special parts of our amazing planet.

Taurus Barstow Woolly Sunflower by Tom Egan

From big to small, there are precious, even sacred, treasures everywhere. Please tread carefully and kindly wherever you go. Walk like a Taurus. Go barefooted. Feel your connection.

As a tribute to Earth Day, In these times of ecological imperilment, animals, plants, humans, I feel called to possibly inspire you to further dedicate your efforts, as you can, to protect all who are endangered. Some areas, and loss of precious lives, can be irrevocable. Each of us loves different landscapes. I may not have imaged yours, but you know I would have if there were space. Bless you for being such a wonderful Earth Steward!

TAURUS 2017 Celestial Highlights!

Astronomy Summer Triangle Milky Way - Deneb, Vega, AltairThroughout the month of May you won’t find the Milky Way in the early part of the night. The disk of our Milky Way galaxy is flat, like a pancake. At northern temperate latitudes, as evening falls in the month of May, the plane of the pancake-shaped galactic disk pretty much coincides with the plane of your horizon! We can’t see it until late at night. When we do, the Milky Way passes right through the Summer Triangle – Vega, Deneb, Altair. Watch for it rising in the eastern sky if you’re up late! EarthSky.org image!

Don’t forget to make special arrangements for viewing the August 21 Eclipse!

Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Taurus 2017-May 2018!

Taurus Golden Sea of Canola Flowers in Luoping, China!

Golden Sea of Canola Flowers in Luoping, China. The location is described as north of the snail field and south of the Golden Rooster Peak Cong and thousands of mountains.

May you never move more than your personal pace, but in comfort and style, music and beauty.

Four outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, Saturn and Jupiter are changing signs in Taurus’s year to come.

Pluto is just past mid 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! Though Taurus is also an Earth sign, it does not necessarily enjoy the scrutiny of Pluto the planet of Taurus’s opposite sign Scorpio. Yet Pluto sees what is supreme in us as well as flaws that need healing that releases that goodness in us to perform fully. Taurus may be enchanted out of a spot they were not aware they were stuck in. Their solid offerings revealed, Pluto in Capricorn offers them the work!

Neptune is in its own sign, moves from 11 to 16 Pisces. It is 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. Taurus likes being grounded and steady. It loves fresh water to moisten fertile land, refresh the body, cleanse the Spirit. Neptune can be subtle, the fog over the land, or the rock music rhythm while you are cleaning house or dancing in the meadow! It makes us wonder, loosens our earthly bonds, be more finely in tune. It helps us remember our dreams, and that not all beauty is of the flesh or money.

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 0 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! Tauruses are willing, but by their own choice. They generally prefer daily dependable security. Uranus in Aries is not that! They are perfectly strange and get your attention! This crazy stranger walks onto your property and darned if they don’t have some great ideas! You find yourself switching this and that and when you look up they are gone! You may be inspired to meet with your locals, hire a consultant to update things periodically.

When Uranus gets into Taurus it’s going to feel quite personal to Tauruses. You may be nervous, so ready for change, run away from home with friends, start a new business! Uh, you may be more than horny, enjoy some exotic company! Your body may literally change, and you find yourself singing! You could be on your own or involved in strong community organizations. Uranus will be in Taurus through April 2026, activating your chart in various ways, bit by bit, as it goes through the degrees.

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, covers 24 Pisces to 1 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 and is quite willing to work with Taurus’s natural herbal and touch healing remedies! Pisces knows about cleanses, meditation. Taurus is quite willing to sit with the flowers, have steam baths, teas, herbal inhalants. Some of these remedies can be applied symbolically to the rest of our lives. Be thoughtful about your relationships. Give them time to heal. Be genuine and clear about your business endeavors. Keep good people in your life.

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! It may make a Taurus head spin, but already we are being tuned up to be ready!

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through April 2018. Saturn goes into its own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017!

In Sagittarius Saturn may find his travel budget lacking for the time being, or may find perfect low budget opportunities! Education may need to wait, but is still a good investment as soon as possible. Saturn has some realistic proposals that a Taurus can get behind. The plans look well founded. Time and costs need working out. Diversifying may be a bit unsettling, and there needs to be steady attention to keep progress going well. It may seem a bit pretentious or upscale to Taurus, out of your element, so maybe keep your old homestead. Maybe hire the traveler after checking their creds, and check on them from time to time.

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 point 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!

29 year Saturn Returns 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.

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, Saturn might have more work than anybody should, or they are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when they get replacement work that suits them better or they start their own business! Taurus is strong and doesn’t mind starting and having their own business. It’s in their genes, having been farmers, Mother Nature their only boss. They are survivors used to huge challenges. Capricorn, the last Earth sign, brings the science of it all to bear, and production, no matter what business it is, increases. Laws and contracts may help or hinder; get expert advice. Timing makes a difference. It may be the perfect time to retire! Saturn will be in Capricorn until Dec 2020

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. 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 13 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. Taurus and Libra share Venus as their ruler. In Taurus it is a strong body beautiful, growing the flowers, ownership of fine things, land, sensuality. In Libra it is social, beauty is fine arts, symphonies, ballet & plays. A classy city penthouse with views and airspace, lots of light keeps the spirits up. Dance is pure Grace. Libra brings finesse to Taurus, expands their social, business and life connections. Taurus invites Libra to be with the Earth, not forget their natural roots. Quite different ways of loving a lot of the same things. Jupiter invites Taurus to learn more, make good use of other humans who would like to help. When you travel, be comfortable, in good company.

Jupiter in Scorpio is opposite Taurus. Libra has prepared the way, making introductions, getting Taurus used to new people and ideas. Things are not as steady as they used to be, but we’re getting used to it and stepping up. Scorpio says it’s not just your money, but how we put it all together for the greater good or more powerful investments that will pave the way to support future ventures, causes. They will ask for funding. Projects and plans will be discussed. There will be important ideas considered. Jupiter is good willed, and with Scorpio offers new healing information. When we up our capacity. old debilities will be left behind. Our potential for love increases. Let go the fears, remove the old blocks. Stay safe, be clear seeing with clean motives.

If your Jupiter is in these Libra or Scorpio degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! 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 coming Sign Changes Timetable:

Happy Birthdays, Tauruses! May you meander in great happiness.

Special request! Pledge to Get Kids Outdoors

Nearly two-thirds of the U.S. population does not have close-to-home access to nature, with the greatest disparities found in low-income communities. Community gardens can bring nature into small spaces and are a great introduction to the outdoors for many kids.

Time in nature makes us whole, healthy, and happy. It also improves learning and strengthens our communities. Adding more green space can even help mitigate some of the impacts of climate change. Yet far too few people have safe access to nearby nature.


Any of these outer planet 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 astrologers for the whole picture! May it go well with you….

Taurus Advocates, Steady in the Light!

Taurus Pregnancy Blessingway Image by YoginiMomma

Birthing is Primal Advocacy. A BlessingWay ceremony honors the Birth to come, the Mother’s Journey. Beautiful image by Yogini Momma

From one day to the next Tauruses walk this Earth, touching, tending, teaching by Being. Beauty is their Grace, patience is their Charm, sweet gentle kindness is their healing gift. Children get peaceful, animals are calmed. We have time to notice each other, listen to the words, adjust our tone. Flowers bloom, brooks sparkle, the Sun bestows his light magic. We get cooked by the Great Spirit. The Buddha sat by the road, grounded and centered. Compassion can become a way of life.

We’re not saying sit down and take it. Not a chance. Stand true and solid. Have genuine outrage. Start a foundation that never gives up, uses common sense, and gets the job done! Dependable renewable energy is at your fingertips, right in your heart! Determination is one breath, then one step at a time. Others will be right beside you in those spiritual traces, pulling, pushing, just as strongly as you are!

There are moments to take time out, restore. Thinking is good. You will know when to adjust and start anew. Modify your pace at times to observe clearly, watch the flow around you and see the precise moment to make your move. Stubborn is just one side of the coin.

Tauruses love doing touch work, massage, working with textiles and textures, fine clothes, comfort items and delicious foods. Beauty businesses are dear to their heart – flowers, hair and nail pampering. Creams, soaps, sachets. Exercise to improve our health and supple fitness, relax our spirits, bring Peace. Yoga and meditation. Working with the land suits these nature lovers. Natural remedies – herbal tinctures, flower essences. Landscaping, botanic gardens, seed sellers, compost makers, farmers. Setting up foundations, conservancies, environmental protection organizations with the gold in their counting house making having worked hard for all that money well worth it. We hear the phrase ‘strong as an ox,’ and you can count on it. Weight lifting, moving businesses are easy and enjoyable for them.

Health is usually strong, but overeating those tasty foods, sweets, is their nemesis. When they sit, sometimes it’s hard to get up. Lazing in those flannel sheets feels good forever, especially on cold mornings. Tauruses have lovely melodic voices. Sometime they strain their throat muscles, get sore throats. In the old days, hanging was a danger! Our thyroid gland stores and produces hormones that affect the function of virtually every organ in our bodies. It is so important for it to function well – it ‘regulates our metabolic rate and is associated with modest changes in body weight and energy levels.’

As Lovers, the sensuality is sweet, fragrant as a bed of rose petals! Sharing food, especially those chocolates, is sensual. Whipped cream. Though perhaps a bit possessive, if you need to feel secure, they will be there for you forever! They will support you, your efforts for success, back you financially if they can and you let them, offering excellent sensible advice along the way.They may be slow to propose, but it’s worth the wait!

Fertility is just about a given with Tauruses. A BlessingWay ceremony is perfect. Taurus children love snuggling but dislike being restrained! Their strength and sheer persistence often gets them their way. Now that’s a challenge! Distraction works sometimes, but you can imagine their power of focus. Once you give them a toy, don’t expect it back anytime soon, LOL! Mine! They learn a lot by doing, living in and testing their bodies, seeing for themselves. And it’s amazing how fast they can move once they have their sights on a new location! Food is no problem. Try them with different textures and flavors, just mind the calories!

There is usually a family pet or two, doggies to romp with at the lake or beach. Piggies, lambs, goat milk, chickies, a mule or horse or two or three would be sweet. Respectfully at times there may be furs, hides or skins about, some as clothing, some for making beaded ceremonial pieces, drum covers. Reliable Tauruses are right for the day by day, hour to hour care needed for animal husbandry, birthings.

As seniors, steady walks, getting refreshed outdoors in all kinds of weather may keep their spirits in good fettle. Gardening, weaving, gentle relaxing productive activities are peaceful. Trips to see the wonders of our Earth, educational flower tours keep our minds working. Caring for furry four leggeds, maybe ones that have been rescued, keeps us engaged, and it is a blessing for the creatures.

As the advocates you Tauruses always are, keep what’s dear to your heart at the top of your list.

Stay Strong, Stay Green, be Fertile and Forever Blessed!

Happy Birthdays, Aries!

Meet Ricardo Breceda, Sorcerer of Sheet Metal!

Aries-Mars Ricardo Breceda Metal Sculptor Borrego

This story is about an artist born in 1962 in Durango, Mexico, no birthdate available. But I’m sure he is Aries something and/or has a strong Mars, the Aries planet, in his birth chart!

Dubbed “the Picasso of Steel,” Ricardo Breceda was an injured construction worker and a boot salesman, but became a renowned artist in ten short years with no previous art training or even an interest in art!

People are awestruck by the beauty and scale of his work, and the way his animals seem so real, the way he fashions sheet metal into muscle and bone, the way he captures motion. One writer says: Breceda believes in motion. He’s almost always in motion. One of those fast-metabolism guys who need to be moving. He’s been that way his whole life. Breceda believes in the can-do attitude. He refuses to set himself limits.”

His dedication is apparent in this story about him by Gordon Lee Johnson!

It’s 116 degrees under the desert sun, so hot even the Borrego Springs horned toads are hunting shade.

But there’s no shade for metal sculptor Ricardo Breceda who’s welding sheet-metal scales onto a 350-foot sea monster.

White-hot sparks pop and blister from molten metal. So much sweat rolls into his eyes, he can hardly see through the welding helmet’s visor. The sun is hot, the metal is hot, the arc welder is hot, the helmet is hot, his clothes are hot.

It’s July, he’s been sweltering for almost three months on this sea monster. “All I can think is — let’s finish this thing,” he says.

Lost in the fever of work, his working delirium is broken by a young man who is yelling at him to stop, and holding out a bottle of water.

“He actually got in my face, and yelled at me to stop. I didn’t want to stop, I wanted to keep going. But I’m glad I stopped. That guy may have saved my life.”

Breceda knocked off, drank lots of water, and regained himself after a few hours, cooling off to continue.

A couple of days later, he finally finished. “Let me tell you, a beer never tasted so good.”

Ricardo has won prizes, there is much written about him. He says “I work hard to get a piece to look alive, to give it a soul.

You can see this amazing work at Galleta Meadows Estates in Borrego Springs California.

ARIES 2017 Celestial Highlights!

Astronomy April 10 2017 Full Moon Jupiter Spica

April 7  Jupiter at Opposition. The giant planet will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. It will be brighter than any other time of the year and will be visible all night long. This is the best time to view and photograph Jupiter and its moons. A medium-sized telescope should be able to show you some of the details in Jupiter’s cloud bands. A good pair of binoculars should allow you to see Jupiter’s four largest moons, appearing as bright dots on either side of the planet.

April 10, 2017, see diagram – presents the first full moon of spring for the Northern Hemisphere and the first full moon of autumn for the Southern Hemisphere. The first full moon of the season shines in front of the constellation Virgo the Maiden.

Jupiter stays in front of the constellation Virgo until November 2017.

Don’t forget to make special arrangements for viewing the August 21 Eclipse!

Aries 2017 TimeLine!

October 23 2016 started a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that are the primary aspects of 2017! We have had Jupiter inconjunct Neptune, Jupiter square Pluto ThanksGiving Day, Nov 24! The ‘Holiday Four, plus the very close Jupiter sextile Saturn, 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 next of the set is the March 30 Jupiter square Pluto! See more 

We are in countdown days! Many of us have followed the many years long Uranus square Pluto. At times we have been hysterical, held in suspense with bated breath, sometimes enduring, sometimes kicking the traces of old inbred power and mores. Cultural, racial, sexual, gender, economic, environmental and climate change. Primal matters have been on the line, some to the degree of extinction, to changes of necessity for survival. The long time Uranus square Pluto is finally finishing what it started in 2010, its first of seven exact aspects! It is in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17 and doesn’t go back! It won’t be the click of a switch and it’s over. Such long term major matters permeate deeply throughout our layers, to reach subconscious levels of our lives. It leaves us years of work to integrate, to reach a sustainable ability to reiterate our new thinking that gradually has become part us us in a new working order. We simply aren’t the same people we were 7 years ago. The internet and social media have moved things along even faster than in times before. See more

Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017. It is now opposition Uranus, changes, rebellion! We are making adjustments, rebalancing with our new President. It will be a challenging time for many of us through Nov 2, 2017. Choose your battles, stay long term intentional, stay focused and don’t forget who you are.

Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Aries 2017-April 2018!

Aries Heady RED Hat!

Aries are heady! They love their hats! Caps & helmets are daily wear! AP Photo by David J. Phillip – great shot!

It’s time to surge into your New Year! May there be many grand new accomplishments!

Pluto is just past mid Capricorn through Jan 2018. 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! Aries is FRESH, a sign of the times, even of times to come! Give them the job, they will lead, but get outta their way. They may experiment here and there, taking a bit more time, but the offshoot ideas will be well worth it! Pay attention and capitalize! Aries, be smart and realize the worth of the experience of elders and practiced business men, even if it does remind you of your Father! You may be denied at first, feel blocked, but you can and will do it! If things are too musty, move on and do it on your own, taking the good ideas and sensible guidance with you. You remain independent because it’s your choice to do so!

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is 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 12 and 15 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. If your factors are in Aries, it will be the surf of a lifetime! it will be your unpredictable but fascinating neighbor you get glimpses of. There will be curiosity, caution and irresistible inspiration! Pisces insights about you may be tailor made, so really listen though at times it sounds like they are speaking in tongues. Their troubles may call you to rescue them. That may go well, but if it goes on and on, you may inadvertently be enabling. Walk away, maybe check in time to time. Plant your seeds where there will be potent results.

Uranus covers 23 to 29 Aries, brings us to the brink of the sign change into 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. Ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they are not forgotten. Change worthy ideas need to be highlighted so they are not taken for granted.

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! It takes a lot to make an Aries head spin, and this is exactly what’s happening! At last, a friend who is grateful and keeps feeding you the most outrageous data, inventing daily! It’s their turn to keep up, and that’s rare! Sparks fly and everyone marvels! It’s like Love at first sight, and it works! It may not always be easy, each are quite independent and used to having their own way, but the ideas are bigger than they are separately, so get to work and have an uncommonly good time!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, and like Uranus, also covers 24 Pisces to 0 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 the feet. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business.

Chiron is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation and impresses Aries with its immediate insights, whether in love or business, body or mind! When it 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!

Saturn builds from 21 Sagittarius to 9 Capricorn now through April 2018.

In Sagittarius Saturn may find his travel budget lacking for the time being, or may find perfect low budget opportunities! Education may need to wait, but is still a good investment as soon as possible. Saturn challenges Aries to pick a purpose and stick to it. Sag travels point to point. Aries is willing to go if it suits his purpose right now. Saturn has his hands full because Sagittarius gets distracted and abandons the local project for something more worthy and far sighted. Aries loves a new cause and believes Saturn to be a good backer, so will go along. Sag can lead and teach. Aries wants more than words, let’s make doing it part of the teaching! Saturn may have to adjust the rules to fit the time, place and situation. Together they may get it done, or the locals may take it up and finish it themselves. Teaching is the core. Aries is satisfied, and like Sag, is ready to move on.

29 year Saturn Returns 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.

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 point far, far away. Saturn knows that 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 or fait accompli, on to the next!

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, Saturn might have more work than anybody should, or they are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when they get replacement work that suits them better or they start their own business! Aries loves the perfect fresh challenge of new beginnings, especially independent new beginnings! Thresholds were meant to be leapt across! Capricorn may get tired just watching, and they are hard workers themselves. But things get done. Capricorn needs to watch to be sure things are per specs. Aries may get grumpy it there is smothering supervision. Need to talk this out. If Aries is experienced, give them a free hand. The love department may have delays or hit a dry spell for awhile. Give your body plenty of rest, take time out. Cappies make you think you have to prove yourself, and you do, but there are limits too!

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. Housing, parenting may be challenging new responsibilities. Age may become a factor, retirement. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! Rules, responsibility, respect for elders is called for. It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Jupiter moves from 13 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. Aries finds that exhilarating, plus meeting new people, seeing new places! Negotiate personal time while Libra is with other friends so they won’t feel lonesome while you gone. Be back when you say you will be or they will worry. They are ever etiquette minded, and you will learn some good skills that bring several excellent opportunities your way! They will broaden your horizons as they survey the entire territory while you may be focused on one facet of it. But your focus may be perfect for getting one thing done at a time while they are contemplating. Social situations may cause you to gain a little weight. Dance it away!

Jupiter in Scorpio is not exactly an Aries comfort zone. The Underground dimension may visit you, requiring a deeper look at you, your intentions. Seductive, lucrative financial offers may need you to sacrifice temporarily. Things are not completely straightforward, yet certain revelations may compel you to take a chance. You have picked yourself up before and done even better than before. You can do it again if necessary. Or maybe you are older now and feeling less willing just because it’s an intriguing challenge. Unlike usual you may find yourself seeking tried and true advice. The timeframe involved is longer than your usual venue. It may be worth it, or the tunnel cramps your style, you just want it to be over, get back to your stand up mode. An oblique alliance may be formed that you use as a wild card in the future. Stay clean.

If your Jupiter is in these Libra or Scorpio degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition or makes it wildly abundant! Plans for the future may be magnified, your course changed significantly. Profound circumstances are likely to impinge on special relationships – loving or leaving.

Happy Birthdays, Aries! Wishing you a #1 Year!


Any of these outer planet 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 astrologers for the whole picture! May it go well with you….

Aries ACTivation!

Aries Sea Serpent Head Ricardo Breceda Metal Borrego

A fire made treasure, that’s our Aries! Ricardo Breceda’s Sea Serpent. This is just the head. The rest of it undulates through the desert sand along behind… Gordon Johnson Photo

If you have never been there before it is INitiation! If you have been there, but inactive, perhaps forgotten, you may need ACTivation! If that’s all going for you, then it may be time for you to be the lead Activator!

Purity is high grade energy, has absolute integrity! Aries rarely calculates or is conniving. They function immediately on auto response, accurately filling the immediate need. It’s a White Diamond Light function. Mind you, they aren’t saints, well, not usually, ’cause they are impatient if you can’t or don’t do the same. It’s no fun if you don’t keep up, LOL!

Red is their other color! They are red-blooded heroes and heroines, love those red trucks, and white cars! Racing in any form, is a passion! To them it is not a gamble, they are just so fast they don’t even think about it. Gets them in trouble sometimes. Other times we are so glad they made it, came to help when they did!

They love the challenge of a catching a good partner. They are adoring fans, roses, new places to go together. But they can leave once the challenge is over. They need a match to their continued high energy, needs to be physical. Biking, hiking, skiing, skating. Speeding somewhere together at the front of the pack suits their Spirits! If you like your sex a bit quick, anywhere anytime, fiery and red hot, you have found your lover!

Being their own boss, having their own hours and business, is perfect for self motivators like them! They may start with nothing and build an empire! A Job that has dramatically different challenges, not routine, works. Aries is innovative, loves being the first to try something new. Meeting new people, possible co investors, delights them. They are terrific sales people. They know what you need before you do! Knives, swords, guns, fighting hold fascination. They have the courage to lead even if it might mean their own death. You will find them at the front working with fire!

Classrooms are a tough assignment. It’s a closed space. Boring to look at, always the same for a time frame as fast as Aries. Assign them to keep it changing. Have different instructors. Blow off the energy on top by riding your bike to work or school! Put in plenty of sports, dance classes before sit down classes. Sitting drives them crazy. Let them stand? Do walking meditations! They will thrive on anything that involves heroes and builds independence. For many the independence of riding their bike makes it their vehicle of choice. Science and mechanics, how things work, especially cars, race cars, will do the trick!

Lean blondes or redheads. Dashing and dazzling demeanor. Fresh. Naive and innocent. Radiant health. They exercise, are generally not readers or TV watchers, don’t sit long enough to eat much. But they can have accidents – cuts, head/eye injuries, road rash, punctures, and headaches and burnouts from too much exercise! They like a clean body machine and aren’t inclined to meds or addictions, unless it’s to or for exercise. Oh, and btw, headgear is primal for Aries! It keeps their mind happy!

Fiery crafts jump start their day! Whether it is creating a mechanical toy for their kids, building a new vehicle, exotic enhancing fuels, making expensive jewelry, glass blowing, cheffing that fine steak or burger, retiring to metal sculpting recycled leavings! It engages their whole being. It’s gotta work, amaze people, and you gotta stay alive while you are doing it! Iron matches their blood and copper is their tone!

Many would disagree with me, but I think of Aries as the Crown Chakra energy center of the body. It’s that White Diamond Light you see on some Chakra diagrams. Their perception of incoming information, connecting with the higher realms, must be clean and clear to quickly save lives when it is an emergency, or to not miss a potent opening, that one moment that could make a difference for the rest of your life! Robin DiPasquale, ND RH (AHG) says ‘The energy of the crown chakra is about opening to the heavens through the crown of the head, connecting with the electrical forces of the universe, and allowing these to flow through the body to join with the magnetic forces of the earth energy in the heart.’

Pink is that blend of White Light and the Red Blood of the Heart of Life. There’s nothing Aries wouldn’t do for you if they could. Most of all, they would like you to be strong. To be able to stand on your own two feet. They want you to try. They will take you places you have never seen before. They ignite your curiosity, show you what’s possible. They scatter seeds with the spark of life wherever they go. They have relentless passion for the Spirit of Life!

Bright White Light, Red Hot Flame, Pink for Pure Love…they love for love itself.

Venus Mercury Retrograde Zion Angel's Landing Walters Wiggles

Switchbacks at Utah’s Zion National Park, Angel’s Landing, Walter’s Wiggles! If we are going to do two retrogrades in a row, and overlapping – both at once for a week, whether descending or ascending, we might as well do it elegantly in great Beauty!

March 20 Note: Venus has been retrograde since March 4. Mercury starts Rx during Aries, April 9. Venus goes direct April 15. The DOUBLE RX is April 9 to 15!

April 19 Note: Venus is now direct, moving forward since April 15, finishing her whole cycle May 18. Mercury is retrograde April 9 to May 3. For perspective I’m leaving the Venus retrograde information since it happened first and overlapped with Mercury retrograde, flavoring Mercury retrograde! Plan ahead for Mercury station conjunct Uranus April 27 to May 9!

For your advance planning ~~~ trips, moves, weddings, significant purchases, remodels, elective surgeries, investments, taxes, job changes or reviews. Venus involves your love life, money and values, art and beauty. Mercury typically has to do with signing papers, snafus of all sorts, appointments, mind changes, reversals, breakdowns, electronic failures. Retrogrades have three parts. First is the time the planet goes forward. Next is the retrograde period when it goes back over that same ground. Third is when it turns Direct, forward, and goes over the same ground the third time. Often, having a change of direction, extra work to accommodate the changes, delays, drives us crazy. Given time, from the different vantage points, and as other planets move along, we see the values in these adjustments. Without switchbacks or retrogrades, sometimes we might never reach higher ground had these events not have happened. New vantage points show us how to incorporate new facets in our lives.

Venus Retrograde

Venus sweetens from 13 Aries 8 back to 28 Pisces 54! The whole three part cycle starts Jan 30, finishes May 18 with Venus Rx Mar 4 to April 15.

Venus does make beauty and kindness, money and love. Retrogrades make changes, omits, misunderstandings, mistakes, adjustments.

Venus in Pisces dreams, commiserates and blesses, is music, magic and miracles, lives for the beauty of Soul. Your understandings, beliefs and desires will shift, can even take 180 different positions and return back to your original position even wiser! The idea is to flow with the tide, rise and fall with the swells of life. Be as whole as you can, make Magic as your insights and visions carry you forward. Pisces can be a gentle sign, or the deluge of a tsunami! If things come too fast it could be scary confusion, feeling lost. Lay back on sugar and carbs. Avoid overindulging in social drugs, alcohol; arrange to have a trusted friend to see you safely home. Water sports and businesses, especially related to the ocean, can make significant changes, select new teachers.

Venus in Aries wants what it wants, now, and takes the action needed to get it! They love being first, prize being leaders, are quick super athletes, are great dancers, put in stunning performances! During the Rx you may find your style changing as to how you do these things! The warning is not to overdo it, be careful not to hurt your head or eyes. Sweet hot sex if you’re lucky! But have that sex with your established partner. Many don’t recommend first time sex during Venus Rxs. There is a quality of rebellion and you could get in trouble with dares. You may not get away with it this time, so please be careful, and try not to break the law in front of the officer!

Aries is often impetuous, but most astrologers would not pick anytime during Venus (love and marriage) Retrograde to get married, elope. Only if the compatibility charts were exceptional, both parties have exceptional progression and transit aspects at that time, and the marriage chart is chosen for the best aspects it can have that also are in splendid harmony with both birth charts. Otherwise, some unions are karmic and will be as they are.

Mercury Double Retrograde!

DURING Venus Retrograde, Mercury starts its Rx cycle, and part of its Retrograde time is during the Venus Rx time! So we have a double Rx April 9 to 15! This is a wee bit of a complicated time with two overlapping cycles and Venus and Mercury each changing signs as well. Mercury will move through 24 Aries 15 to 4 Taurus 50. Mercury is Rx April 9 to May 3.  It makes sense to see your astrologer for details about how this activates your personal chart.

At the time of the double Rx, Venus will be in Pisces, Mercury in Taurus. The degrees are not close, so they will be operating independently of each other. That means in two different houses of your personal chart, possibly even four houses, will be activated. They may act together for you depending on the personal linkage of your planets.

Mercury in Aries is quick to see what’s happening, often distracted, maybe jumps to conclusions, or it’s all in your head. Its speed can save lives, tilt the world in a new direction, blitz by old hurdles! It can be impatient, angry, get down to head butting! Get going or get outta my way, but mainly it just wants to do things! It is a leader that inspires confidence! New projects may finally be undertaken, or fail because they are ahead of their time, there are more considerations than realized. Plant your seeds then plant more seeds! Caution signing papers, even if an expert advises it. This is likely not the time to be impetuous. If you are never impetuous, maybe you should give it a try! Do your best.

In Aries it is very likely not the time to do electional face surgery, elope, buy a new car or mechanical items. If you can wait, fix the furnace or air conditioner later. Be careful about head bumps, your brain/skull, eyes. Put in fire alarms well before the retrograde.

Mercury in Taurus takes its time, maybe too much time, but is the most stable of these four combinations. Sometimes it resists change and is thrown off by shifts in routine. Yet, if Taurus has become tired without realizing, changes may be just what the Dr ordered! Your land may change, your garden, your flowers, trees – earthy things. Taurus is your neck, throat and thyroid. If there are any questions, have a checkup in advance, especially if singing or entertainment is important to you. In general, Taurus is ownership and a solid untouchable bank account, but what we want may surprisingly change during this Rx. A generous gift may be expected and you might have a dilemma about what, how much, or whether to give.

If you make investments, do only test amounts during both retrogrades because Venus (money) is Taurus’s planet. Your thinking about what is attractive can easily change. Not a time to buy a new wardrobe, furnish your home, do a remodel or buy a comfortable car. Whatever you buy, get receipts, buy from well standing companies with excellent return policies, get the warranty. If you sign papers include a review clause so it can be changed, canceled or extended within a reasonable time. You set the time for your next job review time.

Mercury Retrograde Taurus while Mars Retrograde 2016 Road Sign S Curve

June 20, 2016 note: Mars continues Retrograde until June 29, three days after Jupiter trines Pluto. Some energies won’t be released until Mars has gone forward a few days after the 29th.

Mars started the first of its three Retrograde phases on Feb 18! Mars type things started since then until the retrograde April 17 will be reviewed during his retrograde April 17 to June 29. The third phase starts June 29, when Mars directs – moves forward again, until the finish August 22. Mars moves about twice as slow as Mercury, taking 2 years to circle Earth, while Mercury goes with the Sun once a year. So the Mars Rx period is longer, will be 2 months, 12 days!

The first pass is new ground. The reverse period, the Retrograde, things are covered in reverse order, reviewed, changed. The third pass is when the answers fall into place, mature decisions are made, last chances for finetuning course corrections.

The retrograde will span from 8 Sagittarius to 23 Scorpio.

Sex & Love

In Scorpio a fervent time, powerfully potent. Scorpio will generally love you forever, but Mars is less patient. For your own goodness they will prod you to take better care of yourself, mend relationships with other. It can be an obsessive combination, and you may have to take serious measures to depart if they get mean. If a new, fresh love, it may rock your socks, be tantric fusion! Just be careful about starting your new intimacy during the retrograde period, especially if it is an affair on one or both of your parts. There are likely to be sad consequences. If you are single be super careful. If with your very own Honey, what a great time to try out some new experiences! If you break up during the Rx, you are likely to get back together, so if you are serious about it, wait until Mars goes direct, then if you still want to, make your move. Be gentle and kind as possible in all circumstances.

In Sagittarius a runaway adventure! A high % of love ’em and leave ’em, but sometimes so worth the hit and run! Take a vacation with your Sweetie, just don’t take your most valuable luggage during the retrograde. Things get lost, so valuables stay with you on the flight. This wonderful exploration could be to a meaningful sacred site, an altar, to see the oracle about your love life, or off to a school or a visit with a teacher. Don’t believe everything you see or hear, or promises made. Evolution is the always change, and trumps any human thinking. What we thought we wanted changes with the perspective of time and circumstance, and though at first we are a bit undone, in the long term things are better!

Health & Healing

In Scorpio This is one of Scorpio’s prime businesses. They are super therapists whether it is mind or body. They have powerful mojo. If you find the healer uses too much force or intimidation for you, stop the program. If you had a super healer it may be time to return for another round. Good healers always know more about you than you do. They have the intuition, skills, experience that can do the best for you. From midwife to Hospice, let these Beings be there for you. Scorpio specially has to do with our intestines and sexual organs. Less food that over taxes our system. Food and exercise that keeps our body at optimum. Take good care of yourself. It’s another way of loving others.

In Sagittarius Sometimes we forget to play. Our Spirit needs relief from serious concerns. Do some things you forgot you love to do. Literally get away. You and your body forget you had aches and pains. If you are about to publish, perhaps immersing yourself in your text or images will take your mind elsewhere. Or go see a healer that has inspired you or the good people you trust, possibly has helped you before. Try something new. Be with the Truth. If you have been procrastinating, in denial, get with a strong friend, talk about what you are scared of, make your plan, take it a step at a time, have your friend be with you to help you get started. We all need help at times. You would do it for them. Sag is hips, thighs, sciatic nerve. These are what let us propel us through our lives. Be ready to happily make adjustments to your exercise, physical therapy programs. Together we can do this.

Career & Business

In Scorpio Financial relics will be summarily dismissed and replaced – not without resistance, but it will happen! Mars likes things done directly, right at the heart of the matter, with the least fuss. Let go of excess procedures, lighten the load, save time and money. Try some new ventures and keep tabs on things yourself, delegate when you find someone capable and trustworthy. Check on security matters frequently during the retrograde. Get proper lighting and make backups. Don’t be too disappointed if you don’t get the job or make the contact or partnership you expected, or the pay you hoped for. A better choice or deal may be in the offing after the retrograde. If you must have a review during this period, negotiate another after the retrograde. (See your astrologer for good dates!)

In Sagittarius Travelers will change course several times, planners be ready for revisions! What you teach may true one day, new info the next! You might reprint old texts, but do better to wait on your new publishing, a better title, a better cover to come. Caution about religious organizations. The management may change or they aren’t as suited as first thought. Your company may decide to go back to meeting at a previous place. Selecting your courses or place of continuing education will be more sure later on. Keep your options as open as possible.

Mars Retrograde Timeline

Feb 18 Mars started Phase 1

Mar 5 Mars into Sagittarius

Mar 19 Sun into Aries, Mars’ sign. Into Taurus April 19.
Mar 21 Mercury into Aries, Mars’ sign. Into Taurus April 5. From Mar 22 until April 19 there will be 3 planets in Aries! 

April 5 Venus into Aries, Mars’ sign. April 29 Taurus.
April 12 Venus in Aries trine Mars

April 17 Mars RETROGRADE 8 Sag to 23 Scorpio

April 28 Mercury RETROGRADE 23 to 14 Taurus DURING the Mars Rx! It’s a double retrograde!

May 9 2016 TRANSIT OF MERCURY Rx in Taurus, 7.5 hour ECLIPSE across the Sun, 8:12 AM Pacific at 19 Taurus 25! On the average, there are only 13 transits of Mercury each century. The last planetary Solar Eclipse we had was Venus Retrograde in Gemini June 5, 2012. The last Mercury eclipse was Nov 8, 2006 at 16 Scorpio. The May Mercury eclipses are about half as frequent as November transits, but are bigger because Mercury is Aphelion, farthest from the sun. They occur at Mercury’s South Node. See More & the Chart!

May 22 Mercury DIRECT
May 22 The same day Mercury Directs, goes forward, Mars is at the Rx midpoint; Mars is always opposite the Sun at its Rx midpoint! This time the Sun is in Mercury’s sign Gemini at 1 Gemini/Sagittarius 47! Mars and Sun, two fiery planets will be facing off. The Sun is Light and rules the Heart, the sense of our core Self. Mars is Fire personified, lives for action! It is the candle flame of ignition when we need inspiration. It quickens our reaction time, is a spontaneous and cleverly innovative problem solver! It is the Seed of Spring, the Initiator, Leader! If you happen to be in the flock-of-lambs dept, not to worry, you will become a fine ram or ewe!

May 27 Mars Rx back into Scorpio

June 18  Mars Rx inconjunct Uranus  – 23 SC 51 Rx. Disturbances in the valence through July 13!
June 29
 MARS DIRECT at 23 Scorpio 3.9!

July 13 Mars direct inconjunct Uranus – 24 SC 25

Aug 2 Mars Sagittarius

Aug 10 Mercury starts Retrograde Phase 1 in Virgo

Aug 22 Mars 3rd phase finishes at 8 Sag, Sun into Virgo

Aug 30, eight days later, Mercury retrogrades in Virgo

23 DEGREES

Though Mercury starts its Retrograde at 23 Taurus, and Mars goes Direct (forward) at the opposite point, 23 Scorpio, they are never in opposition while both are retrograde due to the differences in their timing. But that 23 degree point becomes a sensitive point, since the degree positions when planets turn Retrograde or Direct, called a Station, are held for many days in the sky.

Feb 18 Mars already crossed 23 Scorpio
Apr 28 Mercury Rx at 23 Taurus
June  7 Mercury completes the Rx cycle at 23 Taurus
Jun 29 Mars Direct at 23 Scorpio

Passing it back and forth, who’s across the table, crossfire, differences, independence, separation, negotiation, complementary efforts, exciting joint advocacy, cooperation, will all be part of our considerations. Mercury is mind and communications. Mars is action inspired by Mercury’s inspired quick thinking – even in Taurus, or perhaps especially in Taurus, because Taurus has ruminated on matters, coming up with amazing common sense solutions, worthy of Mars’ actions! A retrograde in Taurus releases long held consciousness. Sensing and trusting fundamental value, Mars doesn’t hesitate to inaugurate a powerful trial in Scorpio, a cautious yet astute sign, to see if further sharing/teaching is feasible in Sagittarius.

More than concurrent retrogrades, the profound 7.5 hour TRANSIT OF MERCURY Rx Eclipse across the Sun, Mercury Direct at the Mars Rx midpoint opposite Sun in Gemini – Mercury’s sign, and the 23 degree connections, these two Retrogrades are powerful and specially linked.

Enjoy your hunt, the Quest, the depths and the heights, meeting new people!
