Venus Retrograde Pink Rose Baby's Breath

June 21, Summer Solstice, the day the Sun entered Cancer, Venus started her 3 retrograde phases! 

First phase June 21 to July 25 – 14 Leo to 0 Virgo
Retrograde July 25 to Sep 6, 0 Virgo back to 14 Leo, 44 days
Phase three, Direct Sep 6 to Oct 9, 14 Leo to 0 Virgo, complete

Venus the planet of Love and Beauty is in Leo the sign of the Heart of Love. Virgo is the sign of Maidenhood, the primordial juicy Virgin, Purity. 0 Virgo back to 14 Leo are the degrees covered. All but one are in Leo. 0 is the degree of Initiation, new beginnings. We will be launching a new system of daily living (Virgo) founded by lots of Love and creativity (Leo)!

Venus in Leo goes from refined genteel tea ceremony caring to robust party-out rock-n-roll knock-me-down LOVE! Presents mean a lot, from the tiniest rosebud to the best sound system in LA or the finest art! The tallest heels, highest laced boots, the most magical sweeping hair, makeup to light the night! Sequins to diamonds, every star must shine! Princess or Queen, a canny lass knows what’s best!

On the home front it might look like the warmest heart in the world, the tastiest sweet treats in your lunch box. A loving sweetheart makes your life easy, fixes things before you ask, brings you little gifts that make your day, makes that I-love-you call, knows who you are and the good things you do and says so.

On the job it is making the world a more beautiful place, a touch of beauty that makes a difference, sells the product. Successful social gatherings share the pride of a job well done. Entertainment, performances exceed all expectations! Poetry tells the story, and if you are really lucky, you win the bet!

Venus in Virgo is the sweetest. Virgo wants to help. They will slave away day after day, long into the night. They care for the sick, clean up messes, manage your money, help the tenants, do yard maintenance, plant the veggie garden, feed the pets, make sure you have quality food. Whatever it is, they take the time and do more than most, better than anyone, in the shortest time! They are super natural organizers and save money, barter like a banshee. They can be Mother, Midwife, Mystic all rolled into one, all while writing the novel or the grant application!

And believe me, this is all possible with the Retrograde STATION at 0 Virgo, the degree of REGULUS the King, one of the four Royal Stars! Regulus has been in Leo until recently. Now in this feminine sign Virgo, having the only female symbol of the zodiac, the King/God has become Queen/Goddess! It is with great honor that this magical 0 degree station is held for TWELVE DAYS+, late July 18 to early July 30! It will be an initiation, a trial period, a time of considering Purity, the primordial essence of Virgo. It is an indwelling absorption, imbibing the perpetual intention to serve. It calls for an innocence, serving without judgment, gratitude for how each gives as they can at the time.

So first we have Leo the sign of kings, then Virgo at the degree of the king of kings!!! If some of your followers have been missing, call a meeting and give orders! :) You women claim your Queenhood, put on a flowers and herb wreath and enjoy every minute. Be of a generous Spirit for you have it to give. Claim the divine power of the Maiden Goddess Persephone. Be the Midwife/Healer who was trained by her Mother, and Mother’s Mother, and trains her Daughter. Be the One to start that tradition. Be kind in your power. Change is inevitable; it just might not happen at your pace.

Another way is to think about this is the background of the transition of Regulus from Leo to Virgo in 2011, how profound that was, still is. The Leo to Virgo link is the transformation that happens every month as the Moon moves from Leo to Virgo, and every year when the Sun transits from Leo to Virgo. It is symbolized by the Sphinx, head of a Virgin woman, body of a Lion! Being first, the Lion is the foundation, support for Virgo. We know the story of Centaurs (Sagittarius/Jupiter), half horse, half man. Well this is the woman part. The Sphinx is less talked about, a greater mystery for the time being. Women are still finding their way out of slavery, having no rights, being abused. Time to call on the Leo Lion’s strength, be grateful for its Heart and Light. As the horse gave men a greater range of freedom, the ‘enlightened’ Virgo heads the strength of the Lion and serves by choice.

RETROGRADE it all takes a turn. Values shift. Your body tells you it wants different. Age might become a factor. Your exercise routine may be interrupted and those chocolates add pounds. It’s 99% not the time for facelifts or elective procedures. Your wardrobe is all the wrong colors and no longer fits, but wait, don’t buy new while retrograde. A person you thought well of is not as expected after all. They aren’t lover material, and you decide you don’t like that job or want that part in the play either! A long ago abandoned lover returns and you don’t know whether to switch or cut bait! Due to unexpected events, the bet is entirely lost, party cancelled. Better to wait on big spending – furniture, remodeling, expensive landscaping, or even that house. You have changed; you don’t even want it anymore.

HEADS UP for late summer, early fall planning! July 25 to Sep 6, while Venus retrogrades from 0 Virgo back to 14 Leo, most wouldn’t choose this as falling-in-love-on-your-vacation time, nor a wedding date choice time. Retrogrades can be unstable with constant mind changes. With this bound in the chart of something started at this time, you always have a sense of unfinished business, there is constant reappraisal. Values aren’t settled. If you love that, the challenges and the Leo dramas it brings, have money to spare for when things change, then life is good, just gets better and better. If aspects are well for you, for you both, at that time, love always returns, better than ever! Leo loves big! If it is at the 0 degree Virgo time, it is probably better to choose a different time. Virgos have enough to do already, and function best in their own routines.

Generally, new needs are in the offing.

THREE PHASES Give it the time it takes. Venus is in the degrees that will be reassessed June 21 to July 25. It Retrogrades July 25, going from 0 Virgo to half way back into Leo, 14 Leo. It will cross this same area the third time when it goes Direct September 6 on to finish the pattern October 9. The whole process will take 3 months, 18 days.

Here’s another way to look at the Celestial Schedule with the Star Regulus!

7/18 Venus at Regulus 1st time
7/25 Venus retrograde near Regulus
7/31 Venus conjunct Regulus 2nd time, Aquarius full moon
8/4 Jupiter and Venus conjunct for the 2nd time at 28 Leo very close to Regulus
8/11 Jupiter arrives at Regulus
8/15 Venus inferior conjunction (Venus transitions to morning star)
10/8 Venus arrives at Regulus for the third time and continues forward
10/25 3rd Venus Jupiter conjunction

Venus also makes aspects with three planets, three times each during its retrograde cycle.

  1. June 28, Aug 19 continuous to Sep 22, the day before Autumn Equinox, Sun into Libra, Venus trines Uranus in Aries. Blessings of friends and community organizations, loves flights, beauty inventions, new hairstyle, astrology readings, extraordinary performances, singers, gifts – especially of the electronic kind! We don’t mind having a great aspect like this three times!
  2. June 30, Aug 19, Sep 21 Inconjunct Chiron in Pisces. These dates are traveling closely with the Trine Uranus dates. Venus in Leo wants love, Chiron wants marriage, but inconjuncts are often divorce due to an askew connection. Things just seem to slip apart. This aspect also calls money and business decisions into question. If timely significant adjustments are made the situation may be saved. Or, just let go.
  3. July 13, Aug 5, Square Saturn in Scorpio, Oct 10 Square Saturn in Sagittarius. In Scorpio, the first two squares, there may be loss of love or money whether stolen, misrepresented, a mistake, or greater expenses. The breakthrough may be not falling for the seduction again, realizing the payoff may not be very much, doing the tough work it takes, admitting reality, reducing expenses. There may be a necessary and natural grieving period. In Sagittarius, your direction may not go as planned, maybe a relief, but soon better! Be careful of over confidence, fearful reactionary over spending. Give it a trial time, modify sensibly. A first step with genuine good intention often leads to another though it may be a challenging passage. Have a backup plan to ease your mind.
As of June 21, many things will not turn out as anticipated, especially ones in the fixed signs, Taurus/Scorpio and Leo/Aquarius. Fixed sign’s purposes are to stabilize, not disrupt, yet some change is a must, as much as the growth from chrysalis to butterfly. Things you deliberately want to be changed, might need some help getting done, so instead of seeking a conclusion, let them ride, continue on and the retrograde will help loosen the roots and knots. What will be will be. Most assuredly, it will be better when all is said and done! Sometimes there is so much transformation you no longer recognize what it was when it all started! Maybe you won’t remember because the new Light has taken your breath away and filled your mind with new beauty and wonder!

Walk in Beauty.

FULL Strawberry Moon ~

Full Strawberry Moon ~
Pluto YOD, Jupiter Bow, Grand Fire Trine!
Tuesday June 2 at 9:19 AM Pacific – 11 Sagittarius 49
Full Strawberry Moon

During Mercury Retrograde, the Full Moon, Gemini/Sagittarius Strawberry Moon, is called the Festival of Humanity by some. It’s purpose is to share the Word and Teachings far and wide! Gemini gathers information and communication skills know how. Sagittarius seeks purpose, the far vision that makes it meaningful, gives focus.

♦ Mercury is Gemini’s planet! Retrograde reviews, upgrades, opens doors from opposite directions, making choices more whole and productive. On the immediate basis it can seem frustrating as things keep changing moment to moment, not settling. Fixed signs (Taurus/Scorpio, Leo/Aquarius) and orderly signs (Virgo/Capricorn) often don’t find this multitude of adjustments comfortable; they like their routines, but stay with it, the results will prove worthy though many people will opt not to sign important papers yet.

Some of those adjustments were front and center when Sun, moving forward, and Mercury in reverse, crossed on Saturday the 30th at 9:56 AM Pacific, or, they had a meeting of the minds. Though moving apart now, they have left an invisible trail of thoughts still influencing decisions.

Sun is getting excited as he approaches Mars, a super athlete combination! Running, tennis, biking may all be in the wind in short volleys. But, the Moon in Sagittarius would like to get some distance going! They want to SEE what’s out there! Mars is a Leader, first, takes the initiative! Mars is a rights fighter, in this case, the pen being mightier than the sword! Gemini/Sag is the great storyteller of a very entertaining chapter-by-chapter mythy moral tale embellished with believable facts that make it seem real. Personal new beginnings are near and dear to your heart!

The Moon is opposite Mars, so be careful of wounding words and conversations. Moon can be a tad self righteous in Sagittarius, and by nature, Mars only does what Mars thinks in a hot minute! Mars can be quick, and if the Sun is provoked in its ego, together they all may regret what can’t be taken back. Lucky for us, Moon in Sag is more forgiving. If you are hair trigger yourself, maybe lay a bit low, avoid giving or getting the bee sting. If it is needing saying, long overdue, maybe it will clear the air; change will be quick! The Sun/’Mars exact conjunction isn’t until June 14 at 8:56 AM Pacific, the day Saturn returns into Scorpio. The Full Moon may set off a situation that lasts until then and then some.

♦ The Full Moon axis is just leaving Neptune in its own sign Pisces as the point of the T Square to the axis. Neptune/Pisces is famous for sensitivity, Sun, Mars and Gemini/Sag not so much. The challenge has been to have compassion, empathy, yet with logic, not be swept into doing things that aren’t in your heart. It will still be tempting, perhaps, to run right over the shy person or push a confused person to agree with you, maybe in the interests of ‘saving time’ or getting another person on your side. But that kind of compliance usually unravels later, so take a deep breath, honor others best you can.

You yourself may have had a recent battle of confusion within you or with someone who has. You may still have doubts what to do. It goes from mystical pandemonium to whether to turn right or left! Surrender or jump on it. Get the exercise or meditate. Talk or be silent. Almost always, the answer is a bit of both. The whole function of a Full Moon is separation of opposites yet assimilation, in short, balance, equality. Having skills to do both gives you all your options!

♦ Because the Sun conjuncts Mars, the YOD with Pluto and Jupiter becomes important. Mars and Pluto are in a tight 1 minute of space inconjunct! They are close with Jupiter only a degree away, Mars quickly to sextile Jupiter exactly on the 5th at 4:38 PM Pacific. Mars and Pluto are warriors, but Mars in Gemini with words and a smile, and Pluto in Capricorn very differently with your paycheck and the law! Mars can speak fervently in Pluto’s behalf or devastate Pluto’s reputation. Pluto can fund Mars’ intentions or take it all away. Pluto in Cap has staying power, but Mars bounces back in air sign Gemini. Better to be respectful allies or just leave it alone if things aren’t working, put your energy elsewhere.

Mars sextile Jupiter in Leo is just plain fun and a wins the race! Both are leaders, Jupiter is confident. Mars in Gemini likes new and clever, while Jupiter in Leo goes for center stage and succeeds! You could be swept along with them, taken in or on a trip of a lifetime! Learning is fast and the risk quite tempting! Pluto in Cap may save you from yourself!

Jupiter inconjunct Pluto may light the fires of Hell as it recently has – Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano, Mexico’s Colima Volcano, plus Nepal’s quake! It can be the glamour story of the century, or fizzle so sadly. Jupiter may be crushed by Pluto in Cap’s skepticism, or vindicated by their recognition of the possibilities! Pluto may be annoyed by Jupiter’s endless stories, yet somehow fascinated at the insane potential and secretly astounded by the actual lucky results. Makes them a believer. Truth and consequences for better and worse.

In addition, Mars and Jupiter are both in exciting aspects to Uranus, the planet of universal change and genius! Uranus is in Mars’ sign Aries, split second fast! Jupiter enhances them both giving super lucky decisions! Mega communications, performances of magnitude. Publish, go public, have a grand opening even though Mercury is retrograde! Many successful world famous businesses have it Rx in their charts. Take the seminar; travel with friends. Get pregnant! Fame and Fortune! Mars will make the sextile with Uranus exactly on the 9th at 0:29 AM Pacific. That means the 8th is the action day unless you work at night. Puts a song in your heart! More on Jupiter super trine Uranus!

Jupiter is the lucky one! Here are the action aspects Pacific times and dates:
x
May 30   9:56 AM    Mercury conjunct Sun
June 2     6:31 PM    Moon trine Jupiter
June 5     4:38 PM    Mars sextile Jupiter
June 8     2:56 PM    Sun sextile Jupiter
June 9     0:29 AM    Mars Sextile Uranus (8th is the day)
June 14   8:56 AM    Sun conjunct Mars
June 14   5:38 PM    Saturn back in Scorpio
June 22   6:43 AM   Jupiter trine Uranus!x

♦ The Jupiter Bow pattern with the Full Moon axis is the whipped cream for the strawberries! The Gemini Sun, as well as Mars, is sextile Jupiter. Sun is the Light, Jupiter theWayshower. Both like to share and teach, strut and play. It’s lucky to be who you are! And Jupiter is Sag’s planet, the sign the Moon is in. It’s a traveling party – on the boat, by train, a caravan. Or it’s a race you will never forget! Moon in Sag is happy go lucky, knows where to go and when. Bring the whole family! Let go the doubts; go for the good.

♦ By a Horary astrology term, Translation of Light, there is a Grand FIRE Trine too! This combination is not nearly in as close in degrees as the Bow, but still a blessing, blessings to come as the planets unfurl like a flower into exact connection with each other! Fire is Spirit personified! Uranus is in first Sign, first Fire sign Aries of Initiation; Jupiter is in Leo, fire sign of the Heart and Love; the Full Moon in Sagittarius is in the sign of the Seer, the great Prophets, the Path. The delight of a new Path with new friends in a new community may fill your Soul.

Be tasty!

New Moon ~
Mars, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter Super Trine!
Tuesday June 16 at 7:05 AM Pacific – 25 Gemini 07

Gemini Depp Breathe Quote
Johnny is a June 9, 1963 Gemini and has Mercury conjunct Venus. No surprise he is often quoted and this is one of his quotes.  See his Chart!

Sun and Moon join, Sun infusing Moon with energy, Light, Moon relaying it on to Earth and us. At one degree opposite the Galactic Center, 26 Sagittarius, the messages will be profound! The Galactic Center is considered a Galaxy Gateway, a point of exchange and huge infusion! Gemini is considered the sign of the Word of Spirit, the Breath of Life. Sun is all powerful, Moon has her way, sometimes gentling Sun, giving a feminine blend. Things culminate and are celebrated as the cycle ends, a new one begins. At a tipping point, we are deep in shadow, but invested with potential, seeds of renewal, an innocent child quality. This late degree New Moon forms the last aspect while the Moon is in Gemini, leaving us in a Void of Course period, unfettered, clear, concentrated, centered. Take some moments to rest, steep in the brew. Be thankful for your breath. Prepare to speak from your Heart.

♦ Speedy Mars figures strongly in the Gemini NEW Moon as it did at the Full Moon! The Sun conjuncted Mars Sunday the 14th at 8:56 AM Pacific, and the Moon is exactly with Mars just an hour before the New Moon at 6:06 AM! Mars is an action planet where Gemini is more the thinker. Mars wants to do more than talk! Mars is a champion of the Word, and a superbly quick writer in Gemini. Talent is in the hands and eye! They are observant and the bringer of News and what’s new. They boldly poke about, leafing through anything and everything, discovery at their fingertips. They gather the data to back up what they say, and lead the way to new thinking, so right for a New Moon! Unasked, they are local adventurers, weaving their intelligence through neighborhoods and families. Independent thinking creates a wave of ideas for sweeping change, yet Mars is off on another tack as soon as a seed has taken hold!

♦ Mercury, Gemini’s planet, squares Neptune in it’s own sign Pisces the third and last time. Until it makes the exact aspect, June 23 at 11:09 AM Pacific, and maybe another three days or so, hold off on important irrevocable decisions or ones you can’t afford to have to change later. Mercury is logical, while Neptune goes by insight, spiritual guidance, empathy. Both are good, but they arrive at conclusions differently. Too compassionate and we may be taken advantage of, suffer sadness. Too logical and we may neglect kindness, cause delay as we think things through. Spiritually we may know what we want, and Mercury helps us get there in the real world by telling others about our dreams so others can know how to help us. Confusion and longing make us crazy, but they are natural stages that keep doors open while we are undecided and keep us going even when we don’t know how! See Mercury Retrograde!

♦ Mercury sextiles Venus in Leo. It will hold this aspect until exact for many days since Mercury is moving slowly after turning Direct June 11. The exact aspect won’t be made until July 5 at 1:19 AM Pacific. So research what you will do, but wait to make a decision until a few days after June 23, after the square with Neptune is over. Otherwise, the sweetest loving communications are intended. Appreciation, affection, gifts are given. Time to make pretty. Great design ideas, color choices, lovely remodeling, getting becoming hairstyles. You might pay a little more, but it’s worth it, makes you feel great! Let the breath flow….

Mercury is closely coming trine with the North Node in Libra! Libra is the next air sign, this one of relationships. How we say what’s up makes all the difference. The North Node is where we are a bit shy, still learning to balance with the opposite sign, in this case independent Aries. We need to know the good ways to be independent within relationships, to be ok with difference, be true to ourselves and let others be true to themselves. Trines usually are successful. At worst they are lazy and take things for granted and nothing happens at all. Sigh. Be conscious and take advantage of your opportunity to offer someone your regard.

♦ Jupiter and Uranus are now in the same degree! It is seven-days-close to the final exact super trine with Uranus June 22!!! We have been in it for months. The first was Sep 25, the second March 3. Jupiter enhances, is known for huge growth, expansion, wisdom, seeing the trends of time. Uranus is strange change, enlightened genius, explosions (like volcanoes and lightening), world community, computers and the internet, everything electric, wind turbine energy generators, flight! This is a classic fame & fortune combination. Publishing goes out to the multitudes. Grants and investors can be amazingly generous. Travel is easy and extraordinary at the same time. Research reveals some brilliant cures or incredible information long awaited. Make hay!

WESAK FULL Flower Moon ~ Jupiter TSquare, Pluto Bow!
Taurus New Moon ~ Caput Algol, Mercury Station, Pluto YOD!

WESAK Full Flower Moon – Jupiter TSquare, Pluto Bow
Sunday May 3 at 8:42 PM Pacific – 13 Scorpio 23

Taurus 2015 WESAK Full Flower Moon Dyer
Though this is at Bow Lake, Banff, Alan Dyer of Alberta, captures a scene worthy of the Buddha’s birthday celebration, WESAK, in the Himalayas! 

Full Moons both divide and unite. Sun and Moon are as far apart as they can get in our heavens, giving each space to be themselves, the least fettered by the other. Unlike a New Moon Merger, they have spread their skills to the far winds, and being separated, they can see each other respectfully for who they are uniquely rather than so at one ment they see the New Moon merger rather than their difference. Since January, the Full Moons of the signs are coming before the New Moons, so the appreciation of difference comes first, setting the stage for a respectful and more whole merger of equals. This will be true until May/June 2016 when there will be two Gemini Full Moons, and the pattern then reversed, New Moons before Full Moons.

Full Moons unite anyway because they negotiate, offer options for partnership, enhance each others standing. Division is like multiplication when we each bring our skills to the project! We get to know each other, different ages, faiths, races. A rich blend creates more than was ever expected, has a life of its own!

The Moon in Scorpio has a nose for power and primal forces, wants to share, is a natural healer, is deeply intimate, stands with you from birth to death. They have lots of cards, some of which you will never be privy to. They are superb at recycling and detoxing, cleanup. Successful research and medicine, corporate funding, behind the scenes access are possible. Perfumes, mushrooms and vampires, and fine wine.

The Sun in Taurus, the sign of the Buddha, is steady in the Light. What Scorpio knows, Taurus, the knower of lasting value, brings to the surface to be tended and nurtured. Gentle Taurus, slow and safe, listens to the wild beasties, hears their song. Super strong Taurus is literally capable of carrying the Scorpio knowledge, so Scorpio is willing to share with them. Taurus is often a founder, founding organizations, funding teachings. Taurus’ staying power is surety there will be time enough for the teachings to spread and sink in. This pair are formidable fixed signs with forever intentions. Give them the job.

Mercury in Gemini is just barely separating opposition Saturn Sagittarius, having been exact at 1:35 AM! May 1 or 2 may have brought some harsh or fearful, sad words or thoughts about responsibilities or commitments, credibility matters. Calm yourself, face realities, focus on doing the best you can do in a timely fashion.

Venus has only four more days in Gemini, is separating a semi sextile Mars in Taurus (one of Venus’s signs). Values need to be put into action, loving appreciative words need to be spoken. Actions need to be stabilized by additional positive information that makes you more fully enjoy your work.

A SAME degree Jupiter Leo T Square is the big affair of the day! Getting where you want to go may not be so easy. But often, that IS the test. You may not have directions, or there is an error, it is the ‘wrong’ right day, someone else can’t go. Trust is called for. Trusting yourself, your feelings, that you can do on your own. Teachings may not be accepted just yet. Good intentions may not make it happen. The signs are all fixed, so give things time. Go with an open mind, you may be the one who changes! Be exuberant, but not so pushy they dig in. If you are the listener, breathe and breathe, relax. No matter how excited others are, you still can make up your own mind, and, oh heavens, disagree! Maybe the whole show never comes to pass and you save time and money! Or, there could be breakthroughs! All that stirring up was just what was needed for people to see!

♦ Pluto Capricorn Bow Pattern Maybe you haven’t heard of a Bow Pattern. It is two planets opposite each other, in this case the Full Moon, Sun and Moon, with a third planet, in this case Pluto, at a 1/3 and 2/3s point between them. Sun in Taurus is trine (120 degrees) Pluto Cap in the first and last Earth signs. Sun is making the approach, so Light is coming to darker Pluto Cap. Taurus has an inevitable quality, not easily dissuaded once in motion, and the Sun is indomitable. Expect a brightening, a steadying, a sensible reasoning. Sun trine Pluto is famous for successful major corporate business. Things that have been on the table for awhile, barring the Jupiter T Square matters, may come to fruition.

Moon in Scorpio is sextile (60 degrees) with Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, in Capricorn! There is harmony of Scorpio/Pluto and water/earth compatibility. Sextiles are enriched by different elements giving more opportunities, collaborations. Moon in Scorpio handles the monies adroitly, while lawmaker Capricorn drives the work force, is the Captain of Time. Scorpio is the delving psychoanalyst, while Capricorn the Builder composes the structure. They are adept at rebirth, renewing the old, archaeological to historical.

North Node in Libra, on a 19 year cycle, now conjuncts fixed star Vindemiatrix, inconjuncts Neptune in Pisces.

  • North Node Libra  North Nodes in general are thought to be where we are balancing the old opposite sign in our chart. Sometimes there is a little fear getting used to new territory, so opposite where old skills are held. Aries is opposite Libra, a supreme independence versus the can’t-make-up-your-mind Libra impotence. Yet Librans are tigers when they get to court as lawyers, are in a political fray, or strategize chess or wars. They are not shy at socializing! Relationships are a must. Libra is amiable and accomodating. Collaboration and partnership make good sense, independence need not be lost.
  • Vindemiatrix.  Add these factors: On the dark side, Astrologer Robson says V is Saturn/Mercury by nature, hence gives falsity, disgrace, stealing, wanton folly and often causes its natives to become widows, the WidowMaker. Ebertin & Hoffman, differently say it gives mental concentration, great for architects and businessmen. If it is badly placed, and especially so if in conjunction with Saturn or Neptune, there is a tendency to depressive moods, skepticism, a distrustful nature. Bernadette Brady takes us back to that V is in Virgo, sign of harvest. It offers the taking time to harvest what you have planted, to patiently collect the things that you like or need. Art collectors, stamp collectors, people who gather facts or things are expressions of this star.
  • The inconjunct with Neptune throws one off kilter a bit. With things slightly askew, there are shifts in perspective, leaks to the outside, infusions seep inside. Secure all the openings, or allow the ventilation, observing the opportunities as they come by, or you go by them. You can adjust by both letting go, making new space, and deliberately making an oblique foray worth the exploration! New relationships, what you might never have considered before, may be formed out of seeming chaos. Neptune softens the boundaries. There is confusion, some fear of the unknown, yet new awareness. Misunderstandings become compassion. Balance is differently weighted. Equality is redefined. Beauty is a mystery, amorphous, exquisite, shimmering before your eyes. Dreams may be your cues.

 In the background, Jupiter in Leo is slowly closing on the marvelous super trine to Uranus in Aries on June 22! If it connects with your chart, in Fire signs there is an undercurrent of excitement, confidence. Challenges will work out, be met. Teaching and learning will be happening all along, go to seminars! Unusual writings may be published. World wide matters will see heroes and heroines. Education for rights, human and animal, are being sounded. Fame and Fortune are possible! Fun and travel. Make university choices by June 22, the exact last aspect, but not during Mercury Retrograde May 18 to June 11. See an astrologer for your personal best dates. The philosophy of a lifetime may be selected.

Make it count because our next super favorable major Jupiter/Uranus combo isn’t until Dec 15, 2019 and it happens only once that time! It is in Earth signs, 2 degrees Capricorn/Taurus. If it doesn’t connect with your chart then, you will have to wait for another 4 years after that!

May your Full Flower Moon Circle be Blessed. Happy Wesak, Namaste.

Taurus New Moon ~ Caput Algol, Mercury Station, Pluto YOD!
Sunday May 17 at 9:18 PM Pacific – 26 Taurus 56

Taurus, Buddhist Woman. Tibetan girl dressed in traditional attire is pictured during 77th birthday celebration of exiled spiritual leader Dalai Lama in Kathmandu.

A Tibetan girl dressed in traditional attire is pictured during the 77th birthday celebration of the exiled spiritual leader the Dalai Lama in Kathmandu, Nepal

Our Taurus New Moon is inconjunct the degree of the Galactic Center and conjunct the Fixed Star Caput Algol! One is as wonderful as the old lore of the other is bad, bad, bad! The Galactic Center is considered a Galaxy Gateway, a point of exchange and huge infusion! It is at 26 Sagittarius, the lucky sign of the Traveler and Teacher! Taurus teaches through Earth wisdom, by connecting through touch, symbolically supporting by planting crops. Taurus teaches the Peace of the Buddha and has body sense through Yoga and organic eating. Inconjunct indicates some kind of a query, a slight disturbance, a course correction.

 Old timer astrologers considered Caput Algol, 26 Taurus 23, at worst to be the most dangerous star in the heavens, beheading, the Demon Star. The list of famous people having it strongly in their charts will almost make you a believer. Yet, a binary blinking, pulsating, eclipsing double-star, it is also associated with extreme creativity! There’s hope! At the same time, there is a symbolic constant death/rebirth scenario, that puts you in touch with intense maximum experiences. Burn out or ride it. So this New Moon may be quite more intense than Taurus’s usual calm self. It may be internal or you might need to get out of its way!

New Moons have their own kind of intensity as the two Lights in the heavens conjoin. The dark opens doors to inner realms. There is a quietening so we hear more subtly. This is a late degree stand alone New Moon, stand alone meaning it isn’t connected with other planets. Things are unfettered, clear, concentrated, centered. Things that are ending are blessed and their maturity celebrated. There is always a child quality and super Feminine to New Moons, as Mama Moon, also of Children comes to be with Father Sun. What’s new is begun, honored with initiation. Another way of being with the New Moon is to let things wind down, just stop. Take time out, rest. Let go of old expectations, be thankful for what you have. Taurus can sit like the Buddha or do proactive Tai Chi. Both are totally in tune expressions.

North Node in Libra is now past the exact inconjunct with Neptune in Pisces. It is still conjunct the fixed star Vindemiatrix. See above

Zesty Mars, now in Gemini, is separating the opposition it made with Saturn in Sagittarius the 14th. If that connected with your chart, you will still be working out what it brought. Mars in Gemini is clever indeed, trying to dodge Saturn’s rules, boundaries, may be exhausted from the effort. Yet there are times a steadying force is a relief. Mars in Gemini can just spin, flail about with no direction. Though that kind of freedom can be exhilarating and lead you to amazing ideas, it can get nervous if frightened and forget the objective. Saturn in Sag helps us keep on course, the long term goal in mind. Mars in Gemini is an information gatherer par excellance! Saturn at times gets stuck in its righteous routine, needs a nudge to move along, and with new information comes to life again!

Venus, Taurus’s planet, currently in Cancer, trined Neptune in Pisces the day before! Fresh dreams, spiritual intention, connection with the Masters. You want more than just money. Beauty is etheric. Music and the arts may have been endowed or you resolved to take up dance again! Your home may be ready for a remodel, or smoothies be back on the menu. An altar at home could be inspiring. At this New Moon you could do a dedication circle. You may miss your Mother, love your children more, so proud. You think of Soulmates, give gratitude for your blessings. Anchor them at the New Moon. Give praise.

 Mercury is in STATION! That means it appears to be ‘standing still’ in the sky before turning RETROGRADE the NEXT DAY, MAY 18 at 6:50 PM Pacific. Mercury, in one of its own signs, Gemini, is sextile Jupiter, but doesn’t make the exact sextile because of the retrograde! There still is effect because they come within one degree of each other. In fact, they have been in working distance since May 9. There have been numerous ideas, abundant ideas. Learning has been worth it, teaching given, schools selected, plans made. Short journeys are fun. BUT. They will only go so far then abandoned. They may or may not be completed, likely not, or not in the way expected. Signing contracts won’t be enough to hold people to old premises. Don’t hold people to their promises. Probably had best intentions, but the winds are blowing a different direction now. Mercury won’t come back and make that sextile exact until July 3! Lot of water over the dam by then! The amps shall have been upped and what happens then will be amazingly better than what almost happened now. You will be glad after all!

 Pluto in YOD, double inconjunct, with Jupiter and Mercury! This is part of a complex planetary pattern that has been with us since February! Jupiter makes its final inconjunct with Pluto May 21, just 4 days after the New Moon! So this New Moon’s new beginnings are crucial to the conclusion of Jupiter with Pluto. Mercury in one of its own signs Gemini, adds it’s communication skills to relay what information it can, but retrogrades before all is complete. It’s as if that’s enough for now, let’s rethink, upgrade, don’t forget what we have done already….

  • Jupiter inconjunct Pluto  Inconjuncts adjust, skew to the side for more awareness and perspective. They can be unsettling, but Jupiter is up for the game, loves a foray! It loves the periphery, looking afar and wide, acquiring an enhanced chest of knowledge. Life is bigger, richer. Pluto in Cap dislikes its routines being upset, but sees the advantages and is on board pretty quickly. See more!
  • Mercury Gemini inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn, won’t make the exact inconjunct with Pluto. There has been inquisitiveness, steady prolonged probing of Pluto’s secrets since the 14th due to Mercury being in Station. But Pluto knows how to hold its own with sniffy Mercury. Mercury could get close, might give old Pluto a shiver, but since Mercury retrogrades, the aspect doesn’t become exact, Pluto is saved! Mercury may try to sign the papers, but they are pulled back, put on hold, likely will be forgotten, even misplaced. Other matters take our attention, causing numerous further shiftings. An alchemy occurs and without realizing, what was, simply is no more. The exact aspect will happen down the road June 28.
 Venus in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn does happen! Pluto in Capricorn can at times be a bit gruff, not impressed by fluff. Yet Venus in Cancer is such a Sweetie, a little melting happens, plus, she’s safely on the other side of things, and out of reach too. She’s intuitive and knows how to prod the old wise one, flirts and flatters a bit and might even bring cookies! So he listens in spite of himself, and she’s smarter than he anticipated. She knows cycles, has good business sense, wants to secure the investment, has a sense of long term. There’s history, maybe good breeding. Real estate, restauranting, children’s business and organizations will likely be successful and Pluto may decide to do some funding. Might not be an encouraging start, but stay with it, ask for what you want.

Oppositions do mean letting go, separating, as well. Could be a breakup, no more hypnotism, improper seduction, or being kept by paying your way. Standing back you may wonder what you saw there. Age may be a factor, disparity of goals, children may leave home, you may move. But remember, Mercury is retrograde tomorrow, things will change. You or they may return. If you get a new place or job during the Rx, know that it is likely temporary if a home, the job may change from what was intended.

 Chatty Mars in Gemini trine the North Node in Libra is unusually looking forward to socializing, even partnering a bit. He more often happily stands alone, simply responding as inspired, moment by moment. But now, there is the potential of another comrade in arms, one who is supportive and helps with those social graces. It could be one person or an inspiring couple living that way. The more he talks, the more thoughts are linked, the more he sees.

 Jupiter in Leo continues to close on the marvelous trine to Uranus in Aries June 22! Performance is like lightning! There is a spark in the air, engagement that warms the heart. Things are bigger and petty differences put in the live and let live category, eccentricities celebrated as gifts! Great numbers of Souls are making change, a wave of Light! See more above

Make it so.

Yule Queen by marvelous artist  Nadezhda Strelkina, calls her Faery.

I call her the Yule Queen.  Her painter, Nadezhda Strelkina, calls her Faery.

Wishing you all the sweetest Holiday Season!
Love, Health, Happiness….wonder, gratitude.

Dec 14 to Dec 31  Mars, Sun, Mercury Cardinal TSquare
Dec 21 to Jan 2  Holiday Capricorn Stellium
Dec 31 to Jan 8 Cardinal Grand Cross!

Get your shamanic shoes on, machinery in good working order, and all your tools handy!  Build the threshold to your new life! Dance through the 2014 Gateway!

During Sagittarius 2012 Mars was in Capricorn conjunct Pluto, activating the Uranus square Pluto. Sagittarius 2013 Mars was in Virgo and Libra.  In Libra it will first be forming a Cardinal TSquare with the continuing Uranus square Pluto, then as Jupiter meets it retrograde, a GRAND CROSS starts to be formed Dec 31!  Mars, the Number 1 fire planet burns away the dross to bring purity.

Dec 7 Mars, the Aries planet, entered Libra, Aries’s opposite sign, one of Venus’s signs! Opposites, separation, at the same time as integration and synthesis. The practice is have both skills:  to allow letting go, separation, and to cooperate with dignity and respect to each other. Could be a bit fiery as they circle each other, assessing, getting safe, learning the best approaches. The goal is an active Peace. It’s time to learn some new social skills, make some new friends or reawaken the old or abandoned ones! Time for new connections that are exciting and breathe the Spirit back into us! It’s a renewal of what’s pure and fresh!

Just a week later, Dec 14, Mars started activating the Uranus square Pluto. Since 2010 this square has been upon us, changing world financial and political conditions dramatically.  Some are tired, discouraged, afraid; others have thrived, having been in position to prosper during the hard times, or their expertise IS survival! And there are many businesses that do thrive in hard times.  Mars in Libra, a sign of balance, seeks a re-positioning, a new strategy, more courageous connections, leadership.  Change is possible when we pull together, but do still indeed follow our own instincts, making others excited to follow our lead!  It may be a small beginning, just like Apple from a garage, but the Lights are ON!  Mars is the Sword of Fire!

Dec 17 is our Capricorn Full Moon – Sun in Capricorn, Moon in Cancer.  Let the resources from our pasts, our families, our genes and culture, bring remembrance of times primordial that we can call on for Wisdom. Whether elders or ones on the Other Side, even from past lives, we can find ourselves being nurtured to build and succeed as relics that no longer serve crumble to free our space to move forward.  Hold each other’s hands and take the steps to new times. After the culmination of the Full Moon, we get thoughtful and a bit more internal, on our way through to the New Year’s Day Capricorn New Moon.

Holiday Stellium Dates:

  • Dec 21, Winter Solstice Day, the Sun starts the Capricorn Stellium!  At first there are only three planets, the Sun, Venus (retrogrades at almost 29 Capricorn this day), and Pluto.
  • Dec 24, Christmas Eve, Mercury enters Capricorn, making it a four planets stellium.  From here, there is an intense sequence of aspects through Jan 2, 2014.
  • Dec 31 to Jan 2, the Moon is in Capricorn, making it a 2+ days FIVE planet Capricorn stellium!

Capricorn Stelliums Capricorn is a fine upstanding sign, proud of its accomplishments. It can be a most dedicated hard worker, prodigious producer. And it can kick up it’s heels, (ever seen baby goats play?) and frolic! They are sure footed, accurate in their steps, so can take certain chances like an adept! Other times they are fairly cautious, rely on tried and true rules, the weight on smart proven choices. This stellium could serve to keep the other planets more in line – Mars who leaps without looking, Jupiter that doesn’t dream they could fail, Uranus that free falls, Pluto that’s obsessed! Cap looks them in the eye and expects them to tow the mark. That can come as a relief when the others are at their edge, and just a word can reel them in, save them from themselves! Whew! Back to reality! If things get too out of hand, they are self-preservationist. If you see a Capricorn run, you go too, right behind them!

  • Dec 25, Christmas Day, Mars, and Moon, oppose Uranus in Aries.  The Moon makes it a SIX planet TSquare, activates the TSquare all day by opposing Uranus, conjuncting Mars, squaring Pluto.  See the chart below.
  • Dec 29 Mercury and Sun square Uranus  Wild or conservative?!  Who, me?
  • Dec 30 Mars squares Pluto, and moves into 5 degree range of square to Jupiter making a Cardinal GRAND CROSS! A considered, measured presentation, protection, or caution be damned!
  • Dec 31 Mercury conjuncts Pluto and squares Mars.  A dangerous risk, possible consequences, or you pounce on an opportunity of the moment with no regrets!    
  • Jan 1, 2014  Sun conjuncts Pluto  Once a year, the gate is open to the deepest dark, most powerful, the Phoenix!  Hang on for the ride, Kundalini awakening!
  • Jan 2, 2014  Sun squares Mars  Oops, the Devil made me do it!  Could be embarrassing, yet secretly the most fun in years!
  • Jan 5, Sun opposes Jupiter  Too, too much, and not enough!  What did you say?!
  • Jan 8 Mars squares Jupiter  Truth or dare!  Dancing in the streets, let’s run away!  NO fights.

Mars, and Uranus in Mars’s sign Aries, throw in the heat!  Mars is usually straight forward, but Uranus throws in the tricks, the unexpected! This can be the surprise party, or the accident in your driveway!  Some may refrain from flights since Uranus rules planes and squares are often challenges.  Pluto is the price, and it may not be to your liking, or there may be an amazing reduction!

Mars and Uranus are independents. Mars prefers to do whatever whenever. Uranus just likes freedom. But, Uranus also rules friendships, and Pluto likes the deepest, most intimate relationships, in Capricorn, especially those of long standing. Mars in Libra wants to see how things are these days. Is it too binding, or has the old bond fizzled? Or is it taking on a new life? Uranus loves change and old fashioned chaos, very entertaining for someone who gets bored easily, so it may say some off the wall thing just to get things going!  Oh, my. Hang onto our socks!  And this over the holidays! Try to keep the troublemakers far, far apart – definitely not at the same party! See them separately if you suspect any morsel of possible disagreements or misbehavior, unless, Ha!, you are the protagonist and you decide it all needs to happen!

Pluto in Capricorn knows the rules and may be called in to ref. It’s not scared of those rowdies, and everyone knows not to upset Pluto. They are the ninjas. If you shame or embarrass them by your unspeakable behavior, you may lose them as a friend.  No amount of amends will recover your connection with them. They just don’t trust you anymore.  Ok.  So you get it. If you think YOU are the person who might misbehave, wait for another time, or have your walking shoes in your mind and be ready to leave, let things go. This is one of those holidays to not talk about religion, politics, or engage in malicious gossip. Without a moment’s hesitation, walk away.

Squares by nature break things up, break down resistances, break through, ultimately build solidly. It’s just the getting there that keeps you up all night, and on your toes!

The astrological chart below is for Christmas Day at 2:40 PM Pacific when the Moon opposes Uranus, is closely conjunct Mars.  This could be a powder keg, be careful with the pepper!  You might want to break tradition and have an early evening gathering rather than morning or midday.  In the chart below, I’ve removed other aspects so you can easily see the SIX planets TSquare.

New Year’s Eve, Dec 31 to Jan 8 Cardinal Grand Cross! Dec 31 Mars comes into range of squaring Jupiter as well as its square to Pluto and opposition with Uranus!  Taking on these 3 outer planets may be akin to David and Goliath, but have no doubt, Mars will warrior his way against the odds!  Mars is confident, doesn’t even think of the odds.  He just responds, goes straight ahead, has a hot quick temper when riled!  Jupiter is sure he can do it, and a little tussle could be just a friendly fight, at first.  Jupiter, though usually friendly, if confronted and falsely accused, or if it is the principle of the matter, can be mighty fast on his feet with a heck of a lot of forward momentum and a kick like a mule!  Be careful about what you do and say this New Year’s night.  Party with a partner, carefully with people you trust, in a safe setting, with a dependable vehicle – or call a cab for sure.  Have the courage to be independent in a good way.  If someone needs you, be their first responder, bring water for the flames, have mercy.  Make sure everyone gets home ok.  We love you and want your dear company in 2014!  Blessed be!

Happy Holidays!  Make sensible holiday choices – be safe, eat well, get plenty of rest, stand tall, laugh and Love it uP!

As always, remember, if the planet degrees, in this case 4 to 12 degrees, don’t activate your chart, these holiday challenges may have little effect on you.
