Mercury Retrograde Pisces 2019 Big Sur Coast Bixby Bridge

An epic coastal curvy view along California’s Big Sur at Bixby Bridge, Big Sur Creek.

This is the first Mercury Retrograde of the three of 2019! All three involve water signs. In the Annual Newsletter I wrote: Pisces, the sign of the magnificent oceans, magic and the Great Mystery! From addicts to saviors, muddlement to acute insight and psychic accuracy. Being lost, to dedication forever led by celestial music.  

About Retrogrades!  

Whether hiking mountain switchbacks or driving a small zig zag road along a ragged coastline, 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! Inner bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. Promontories give us visions of the future, longings for more! Each gives us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch.

Uniquely, this Mercury Rx 3 part cycle is tied with two outer planet sign changes! It starts Feb 18, the first day of Pisces 2019, the day Chiron goes into Aries its final time, the day before the Full Snow SuperMoon! Mercury starts Retrograde March 5, the day before Uranus goes into Taurus! Chiron’s change happens every 51 years, while Uranus is on an 84 year cycle! These are significant changes.

Chiron has been in Pisces, so Mercury’s job is to keep that Pisces healing in our minds, the spiritual component of us present, while this shift is in progress. The starting point is 16 Pisces. Mercury will go forward to 29 Pisces, the last degree of the last sign of the zodiac! It will turn, Retrograde there March 5, and go back to 16 Pisces on March 28. It turns forward, Direct, then, covering the same degrees the third time, completing the entire cycle April 16!

Since this focus in Pisces starts on the day Chiron goes into Aries, leaving Pisces, it seems we are not to forget those last degrees in Pisces. Chiron is going forward, and Aries is the sign of fresh and new! It’s easy to jump into the new excitement. Mercury will be like an archive of insights, will keep Chiron’s tools at hand and offer them up when needed. Mercury is generally logical. In Pisces it’s less fettered by logic and quickly responds without necessarily thinking. You learn to trust your instincts more while it’s in Pisces. That will be most helpful while Chiron is on new ground, now an Aries first responder type!

Every Retrograde is unique, per the signs, their planets, the connections made with other planets during their retrograde cycle, and, of course, the connections it makes, or doesn’t, with your personal chart! Mercury Retrogrades have three part cycles. First is the part leading up to the Retrograde station. We’re on fresh ground, curious. Second is the Rx period when it goes ‘back’ over the part leading up to the Rx. We see things from an opposite point of view. Adjustments are made. Third and last is the part when it turns Direct, ‘forward’ again, covering that same ground the third time! We get three chances. At first we get all things in order we possibly can. Second changes and revisions are made. Third, we tidy up, polish things up, complete and present it to the world! A Station is the pause at the retrograde and direct turns. Mercury literally appears to stand still for 8 days! We mull it over, focus, anchor what we want to keep.

Retrogrades can be in two signs. This one is in Pisces. We all have Pisces in our charts, so take note where Pisces is for you. Mercury is communications, logic. It speaks/listens, is quicksilver distracted/intent when interested. It has to do with our lungs and breath, how we touch one another’s Spirits either with hands or words. We can be angry, comforting, whisper, hypnotize, sing lullabies to the baby, chat the neighborhood gossip, share vital life changing information.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers, or do everything to make it possible for that to happen so it doesn’t fall through. Escrows can fall through. They don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Sign any contract changes and make sure they do too. Get copies, save and backup.

Mercury Rx specific to Pisces. Specific? Pisces doesn’t usually do specific, but, when psychic, they can be deadly accurate! However, Pisces stuff can include changing the music, the date for the meditation event, gallery location. Pisces is the new sound machine and lighting. The cruise is cancelled or you change the itinerary. Insurance benefits, interest rates may change. You fall out of love with your belief system, and in a few days the new one isn’t for you either. Your schedule is forgotten when the surf’s up. Be sure to get receipts (not a Pisces thing) for the new wetsuit or snorkel gear, surfboard, sail. Shipbuilding materials will become unavailable or a different choice made. Your definition of beauty becomes less common, more ethereal. Art you like today becomes passe tomorrow.

How to fix the film, get the seafood for the restaurant, where to go to meditate? What is your Spiritual standing, what are your beliefs? Which water gear to buy, which boat, seaside motel? Should I be a lifeguard, scuba or surf instructor? Do I really believe that vision? What about all that debris in the ocean, what technique or organization can take of that? Save the whales, dolphins, orcas? Help the homeless or invest in coastal real estate? And we haven’t talked about climate change, rising water temps and heights. There is so much to be done. Maybe you will find some answers during this Retrograde.

Pisces will make music, take you to a magical place, sell you fresh fish, buy you a surfboard. They will meditate with you, make films, help you disappear, save your life from invisible pathogens. Thinking can bring drinking. At worst they will be the helpless hopeless victim/martyr addict, sinners. At best they are the most compassionate Angel you ever met, one of God’s own miracles. Keep connected with your sponsor; get help right away. Some things are hard to do alone. The rest of us are mushing around in the middle wanting, praying, to be a better person.

Pisces is more than the apparent physical events. It’s the sign of Spirit, of Holy Union, Beingness, Soul. In these often uncommon zones, there is illusion since we can’t see in the way we always have. We sense presence. We get lost, scared, even lonely. We think we are lost  because we just don’t ‘know’ anymore or for awhile. Wait, concentrate on awareness, how you feel. There can be confusion that takes us from our standard responses, opens us to other possibilities on new ground. It really is ok not to know. It is a useful state of consciousness that helps us to contemplate new concepts, adjust to their existence, add the facet of them that is our part to carry! But don’t expect them to remain the same as we grow with them each day! Pisces if the sign of Morph! Evolution is a living thing. Let yourself be free to ooze on into the future. Creation can be violent as a tsunami, watching a becalmed glassy sea, elegant, humble, always intriguing and magical! It can be comprehensible, or something we merge with that we surrender too and just go with it until we understand if we ever do. It can happen in a fraction of a second. Might take aeons to perfect.

Mercury is naturally connected with Gemini airy mind and Virgo daily earth services, both logical signs. In Pisces, Mercury is in the sign opposite Virgo. Virgo administers the meds very carefully, does accounting, writes cleverly, is a consummate craftsperson that is renowned for excellent technique and detail. Pisces is tuned to subtle details, a shift in the air. They go by what they feel and dream. Mercury wanders in this sign. Many things don’t matter so much as in ordinary daily thinking. Their attention floats, picking up nuances, tones, whispers, imagination. What does matter is how you succeed as a human with compassion, loving kindness, encourage others to believe in themselves. Mercury Rx here drifts among us, making assessments, seeing what needs doing, how it can be done – often so subtly no one knows you were there. Change seemingly comes from out of the blue… Ideas may be put into sound, art, an illustration, image, an imaginary story.

In Pisces, Mercury squares Gemini. Gemini is known for flitting like a butterfly from flower to flower. Some disrespect that ability; gardeners are grateful their veggie plants get pollinated! Gemini is the vital human to human connections, siblings, neighbors. Pisces is human to Soul, God, Spirit. Both of them are seeking quality connections. A square challenge here is the difference of mediums. Gemini is airy, logical; Pisces is watery, mysty. Gemini can’t see through the mist. Pisces doesn’t function literally/linearly. It takes a wee bit of time for them each to adjust to the other’s modality. Each senses the other has importance, so get frustrated when it isn’t easy at first. Go easy, take it a bit at a time.

Aspects formed 3 times during Mercury Pisces Retrograde. See the Timetable below.

There are four! Foremost is the lead aspect of the Retrograde cycle, Mercury conjunct Neptune, Pisces’s own planet! It started the whole cycle on its beginning day Feb 18! Mercury is usually quite a talker, but in Pisces may spend more than usual time listening, absorbing, feeling, even just wandering, observing. Rather than link to link reporting, there may be a standing back, getting a more comprehensive account of what is seen. Neptune is not always so easy to instantly label. He may be enjoying that space deliberately, or simply be his sometimes shy nature that prefers quiet solitude. That is not usually Mercury’s perch. There are many mysteries to explore, unravel, and that makes Mercury more curious than ever. Fascinating challenge. There is much Neptune would love to have more people know about and understand. Mercury is good at articulating visions and ideas so the average person can get it! Neptune’s visions are important, not to be lost in dream. Mercury is the documentarian of precious perception.

Mercury sextiles both planets in Capricorn, Saturn and Pluto! This is a total switch from Neptune. Capricorn is the hard core last earth sign, sign of stones, ice, glass, concrete! Saturn is his own planet, and Pluto is not to be messed with! You better make sense, have your links in a row, be able to stand up under questioning. Sextiles offer opportunities. If Mercury looks credible, perhaps intuitive Pisces will bring him through by hitting the precise mark Saturn and Pluto are looking for. There is a deeper part of each of them that is wanting much more than money. But it’s good to start by mixing both parts of your proposition together, preferably how one part can pay for the other! They might need you to do some advertising for them. The job might be small, but some potent words and placement could make all the difference in their business. Or it could be a huge job and you think twice about taking it on. Take a deep breath and see what you can do. Remember, Mercury type efforts most go awry during Mercury Retrograde. Even though this is a positive sextile, I would way over estimate your fee. This time it is better to go by the hour than by the job. The client themselves are likely to change horses midstream and it’s their choice, not yours. So the positive here is you get more hours. Put the agreed on hourly fee in your contract and everybody sign it. They could request you do some researching. That definitely needs to be paid time too.

Mercury squares Jupiter in his own sign Sagittarius. That is often not so tough, but can be when it is! Mercury can talk too much, making Jupiter crazy when he’s focused in a certain direction. They can chat too much and not get the job done. In Pisces it can be confusing and Jupiter has big imagination, so they may need to just back up and start over though the cat is already out of the bag. Both are story tellers, Mercury short, Jupiter long. Might not pay for Mercury to try to publish Jupiter’s book right now. Not the best time to make travel decisions or school/instructor decisions. Truth itself is questioned. Both planets and signs can be naive at times. Scams are afoot; guard your friends. Be careful about libel. Clarify right away. Faith is overwhelmed by distracting questions. But. If Jupiter is right on, and not being recognized, Mercury could come up with a breakthrough channel to the core and put Jupiter on the map, finally credited as he should be! Jupiter can be out in the boonies of philosophy while Mercury is right here in town getting the word out, sell, sell, selling! In Pisces?! Sure! When he believes because he has ‘seen,’ he can be inspiring and invincible!

Pisces Mercury with Uranus newly in Taurus

Uranus is Mercury’s wild card friend. They are each communicators – Mercury mind, Uranus genius. Mercury is enthralled with the amazing array of ideas Uranus concocts out of thin air! He knows he’s hearing only the half of it. Volumes are communicated on into dawn! Mercury has a million questions! Uranus can uplift the perspective, sometimes bringing Mercury to the height of perception! Uranus is challenged to satisfy this psychically insightful questioner! Uranus has been closely tied with Chiron the entire time Chiron was traversing Pisces! They have each taken on a bit of the other, a camaraderie has been established. So Mercury in Pisces is more easy with Uranus than when Mercury was in other signs. Mercury instinctually realizes this may be the chance of a lifetime!

On the other hand, Uranus has more patience in Taurus, but he is still way ahead of Mercury and at times may get bored quickly with Mercury chatter, no matter how clever it is. Might be good to connect several different times for less time. Mercury can find Taurus a little slow for his taste, yet he can be surprised by Taurus when one of those awesome things Taurus has been thinking about suddenly is complete and pops up! And a terrific idea it is, all the details worked out! So Mercury continues to check in. Mercury finds himself thinking on a larger scale and is alert to how to get more people on board. See more about the Uranus sign change

Pisces has mixed feelings about Uranus. He knows Uranus can disturb the valence at the drop of a hat. Uranus brings quakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, lightning shocks. Pisces can be excited at the time, aware of nature’s own magnificent terrifying cycles, and also be in great mourning for the destruction, loss of life. Change on this scale can clear the way for many people at once, to forge a new life more powerful than what was, up to date, a better chance to deal with climate change effectively. Pisces, so aware of suffering, is glad some of that old suffering is over. Uranus is the planet of being ahead of its time. People find themselves inventing new systems for better living for themselves and our planet.

Uranus going into Taurus is comfortable for Pisces. Taurus is restful, steady, gentle, usually kindly. Pisces can be easily frightened, so these slower moves are a relief. There is time to take a look, get acquainted. Uranus is the humanitarian inventor, not so concerned with local matters unless his work is about them. Just know that your changes at a local level can be applied to many small regions or be micro models that can be applied to larger regions!

Full Cold Moon!

Beautiful bright night, Dec 21 Winter Solstice is followed by the Dec 22 Full Cold Moon 9:49 AM Pacific at 0 Cancer/Capricorn 49! 

Traditional Cancer/Capricorn, Jupiter, Mercury square Neptune, Saturn Sextile Neptune!

2018 Cancer Capricorn Full Cold Moon Star Heavens Solstice

Star of wonder, Star of night, Star with royal beauty bright
Homeward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to Thy perfect Light

Winter Solstice is the darkest longest night, a night of new beginnings as each day after gets a little longer and the Light comes back. The very next day the Full Cold Moon is a new beginning too at ZERO Capricorn/Cancer. Mother Moon is feeling quite comfy in her own Sign Cancer. She’s keeping the home fires burning, might be making gingerbread cookies and tasty eggnog! Cappie makes sure the firewood is in and the long night doesn’t seem so long. Lots of love, feeling safe to think about the New Year to come. Yule gifts are so appreciated, and support our most meaningful choices. 

Children will be coming home, families will be gathering, elders and friends are visited or join us. Some will be sorely missed, not with us on this plane anymore. Bless their souls and comfort us. Schooling and our work, businesses will be discussed. Take time out to walk alone for a while each day, to recenter in your own being, to bring back gentle kindness. Allow primary differences to coexist. Capricorn and Cancer are both staunch protectors of tradition, but let yourself also allow for creativity to spark fires we never knew burned within us! Say, I’ll think about it, and give it some time. Things have a way of working out. Respect the elders and respect the youngers. Love it up! 

There are few ‘active’ aspects in the Full Moon chart. That means the majority of aspects, planetary connections have already happened, our job is to carry them forward. The active aspects haven’t completed yet, are still being addressed.

Past Aspects

In the last three days, Sun in Sagittarius squared Chiron in Pisces, trined Uranus. Sun tried to trick Chiron a bit, help him heal a little faster, give him some business tips from other cultures business styles, even could have tried to offer him some imports to sell, or to get him to export something special he produced. They could have easily disagreed over ethics, the ‘truth,’ or beliefs. Things might have gotten a bit tangled. But the trine with Uranus, a more flowing aspect, brought them back to friendship and it became more about how fun it could be to surprise everyone else! Off they went together!

Venus in Scorpio just brought her sweetie Neptune his favorite chocolates. Chocolate vitamins are the best! He sings her favorite fairy tales. He tells her mythic stories of lovers who saved each other, so eloquent they will never be forgotten. She shares some of her secrets knowing they will be safe with him. That means a lot and he is touched. She is so charismatic even the old man of the sea is swayed by her powerful Grace. He feels her deep caring and healing. The loss of loved ones is lessened. They both understand spiritual matters, the essence of Soul. At the end of the day, together they rock the baby and soon everyone is asleep, dreaming with the Angels.

Mars, feeling his way along in Pisces, made a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn. Mars’ intuition and surprising strength of character may have impressed Pluto. He could have gotten hired for the holidays and the job be kept afterwards. Mars may have secretly inspired Pluto to be a little more tender using his own strengths. Pluto in Capricorn, more financially inclined, may modify some of his intentions, be reminded of his integrity, and acknowledge more of his spirituality. 
 
Upcoming Aspects

Jupiter and Saturn The two most important aspects of the chart are the two most important of 2019, active now through November 2019, preceding the two extraordinary sister aspects, the Transit of Mercury and Jupiter conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER!!! The two eleven months aspects will each happen 3 times, the more difficult yet creative one is first, each time followed by the one that figures out how to do what can be done! The first two are in January, the retrograde pair are close Jun 16/18, the last two are apart from each other in Sep and Nov. 

2019’s first aspect is Jupiter square Neptune. There is so much going on at times confusion reigns, things can get a bit hysterical – sometimes scary – you could get lost, but it can be both entertaining and delightfully rampant as well, depending on where you are standing! Jupiter in Sagittarius is aiming to expand Neptune’s range of attention, and that’s almost an inconceivable idea because Neptune, especially in its own sign Pisces, is so all encompassing to begin with! But Jupiter, robust and mostly innocent in his intent to be benevolent, is undaunted and his exaggerated tales make your howl with laughter. Who cares if you believe it or not?! Saturn follows each of the three Jupiter squares with his sextile to Neptune, calming things down. Sextiles offer opportunity, and out of chaos, practical Saturn extracts what’s usable and doable, condenses it, converts it to productive function.

Mercury, right in front of Jupiter, squares Neptune too! Due to the retrograde it happens Mercury squares Neptune at this Full Moon too, at the SAME degree, 10 Sagittarius! Mercury is generally is a fast mover, makes a quicky square. Mercury is pretty clear in Sagittarius, has his opinions. He has his usual ‘chatter’ but in Sag he’s looking for meaning too. He’s more likely to pick a direction. Or, he’s scattered more than ever with all those Sag possibilities in mind. Neptune too can go any which way. Either it’s mass confusion and illusion, or you would give your life for what you are dedicated to! Mercury is usually logical, Neptune is famous for those psychic curve balls! Good thing Mercury is quick on his feet in a fire sign, like a flash in Sagittarius, the sign of the nimble traveler avoiding the potholes! Good luck!

Practical matters: With this square, confusion is common, getting lost happens, lost luggage may never be seen again. Think carefully what you want to take with you. Since Mercury and Jupiter are so optimistic in Sagittarius, wait to sign papers. Being trusting, they may overlook important words or the lack of them. It may be innocent, naive, or an out and out scam! Mercury may clarify what Jupiter is hoping for, but may also exaggerate and overwhelm Neptune who only ever wanted a quiet life behind the scenes. Either you have to jump in and grab Neptune before he retreats, or gentle down your approach so he doesn’t shut down right before your eyes. Tell the truth or not, but if you do, do it very kindly. The lot of you might get in some funny or not so funny trouble. Try to leave drugs/alcohol out of it. Being too smart or arrogant may not play so well. So just go to the concert instead?! Mercury makes the exact square Monday the 24th at 4:33 PM. Caution Fri/Sat/Sun nights, drive carefully Monday afternoon. No dares, no races, no bets. Be safe.

Mars is trining Moon’s North Node. The North Node is spanning the Full Moon axis, with the North Node in Moon’s own sign Cancer, the South in Capricorn. The nodes work for balance between old, what used to be, the South Node, and what’s needed now, the North Node. These signs are classic, the vertical axis of the natural astrological chart. North is at the bottom of the chart, South is at the top. The Bottom is at home, with Mother and children, while the top is Father out in the world making wages, establishing the family’s reputation. Mars in Pisces is sensitively offering new ideas. He could be so subtle that Cancer never realizes what was said in passing conversation was so important. Pay attention to what the new person in the group is about or is saying. 

Pluto took the Light with him down under, below the Ecliptic Oct 30! Now Kundalini and Phoenix style he is ‘raising’ Hell, LOL! What an awesome job. The mighty midterm elections brought more ethnicity, more women, and LBGTQ! Pluto will have to make many powerful yet delicate shifts to bring these new people into productive work in their new jobs, help them stand tall yet balanced, to facilitate and establish their new ideas into a working part of our fabric. This Full Moon is equipped to help see many facets that need to be harmonized. Cancer and Capricorn want the best for their children, the generations. Likely, environmental matters – extremes of weather, clean air and water, good soil for food, housing, will be important to them, as well as medicine and education. They are what we astrologers call Cardinal signs, the ones who get things moving. They stand strong for fundamental truths.

In the long term, these events will be leading up to the Nov 16, 2019 Transit of Mercury and Nov 19, 2019 Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! 

In respect and full honor, Blessed be…

Capricorn New Moon Solar Eclipse!

Saturday January 5, 2019 at 5:28 PM Pacific, 15 Capricorn 25. 

Solar Eclipse, 5 Planet Capricorn Stellium, Jupiter/Saturn with Neptune!

Capricorn 2019 New Moon Milky Way Monument Valley AZ John Vermette

Happy New Year! First Lunar event of 2019! First Eclipse of 2019! First of three 5 Planet Stelliums of 2019! The Eclipse is the important lunar event before 2019’s First two outer planet aspects, Jupiter square and Saturn sextile Neptune Jan 13 and 31st (reversed numbers – 13/31!)!

Mercury, Saturn, Moon & Sun, and Pluto, all in Capricorn, are celebrating the start of 2019! The second 5 Planet Stellium is in Virgo, the third is in Capricorn again at the end of 2019.

In the Stellium….

Mercury is strong and hard working in Capricorn, getting the word out on the New Year Agenda. He wants a commitment, how much and when, by whom. He is coming up from behind the Capricorn group, will first confer with Saturn to get the top priorities, the latest news.

Mercury is square Mars. In Capricorn, likely Mercury is shaking his finger at Mars, saying slow down! Mars in Aries wasn’t born to slow down! He’s frisky as hell and loving scaring everyone around! He’s leading the way and no one’s going to stop him! New territory always has that fresh feel, goes right to his head! Mercury will have but a few moments to catch his attention, so get to the point and don’t make it sound like an order, LOL. See how you can help him, not hinder him! Could try a little reverse psychology, or dare him though… Mercury will square him exactly at 2:04 AM Pacific the 8th, so the 7th is the day it peaks. Mars could trip Mercury up, take up his time, yell at him, be annoying, be of no help at all, and not even listen. Mars himself could fall or need help and there goes Mercury’s plans for the day. Ok. Be careful, do the best you can.    

Saturn is in his own sign, and his responsibilities almost seem to have doubled, though Capricorns are tough and determined. He will find a way. Likely he’s the boss and can get some help, just needs to keep tabs on the crew and the project on track. If he’s a new year father, he’s probably as proud as burst buttons, and a wee bit tired too. Parents and elders may figure in strongly.

Jupiter & Saturn Jupiter is not in the stellium but forms the first of the two most important aspects in the chart, the two most important of 2019! They are active now through November 2019, preceding the two extraordinary sister aspects, the Transit of Mercury and Jupiter conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER!!! The two eleven months aspects will each happen 3 times, the more difficult yet creative one is first, each time followed by the one that figures out how to do what can be done! The first two are in January, the retrograde pair are close Jun 16/18, the last two are apart from each other in Sep and Nov. 

2019’s first aspect Jan 13 is Jupiter square Neptune. There is so much going on at times confusion reigns, things can get a bit hysterical – sometimes scary – you could get lost, but it can be both entertaining and delightfully rampant as well, depending on where you are standing! Jupiter, in his own sign Sagittarius, is aiming to rev up the motors, expand Neptune’s range of attention, and that’s almost an inconceivable idea because Neptune, especially in its own sign Pisces, is so all encompassing to begin with! But Jupiter, robust and mostly innocent in his cheerful intent to be benevolent, is undaunted. This is a rather friendly square. Neither one minds a little fascinating random chaos. Saturn follows each of the three Jupiter squares with his sextile to Neptune, calming things down. Sextiles offer opportunity, and out of that chaos, practical Saturn extracts what’s usable and doable, condenses it, converts it to productive function. Not bad.

Moon & Sun are sporting the first Eclipse of 2019, a Solar Eclipse! This pup is a partial, visible in Asia and the western Pacific. Not our turn. New Moons always seem quiet because the night is dark, but together in the heavens, they are in recharge mode! Moon is getting infused by Sun’s Light! She is the liaison between Sun and Earth, us! This time they are exactly lined up with us, so expect some surprising Capricorn potency! Did you take that responsibility you said you would? Are you clear about your commitments? Are you keeping your calendar up to date? Moon rules our everyday life, taking care of the kids, food, giving us hugs. But she also collects and remembers as she goes throughout our community, so let’s Sun know what’s needed. She soothes his fiery Spirit, encourages him to stay Bright. She gets tired, Sun knows, so he burns away her worries, makes her secretly feel like the Mother of all Amazons! She winks, gives him a cute little curtsy, and she’s back to work. Who would have ever known that happened?  

Moon is in Capricorn, her opposite sign, so she acts like a liaison from her natural sign Cancer to Capricorn as well! Sun shines forever, rather impervious, and Capricorn, utterly dedicated, has no time for chit chat. Plus, Cap is the citadel protecting Sun. This conjoining with the Moon is likely the most receptive he will be. Moon is very sensitive; she syncs up with him. He knows her sincere caring and listens well, cherishes her insights. 

The New Moon has just sextiled Neptune, gathering in masses of perception. They are separating the wheat from the chaff that will help Saturn make his decisions when he sextiles Neptune. Sun is putting the light on what glows; Moon sings a little song of her own making when she likes a special little bit. Saturn is already very close to the sextile, only just over 2 degrees to go, so the process is in full bore.

Pluto is the most powerful, the last planet in Capricorn. Moon will feel her way by him 4:12 AM Pacific the next morning. She is fresh from the Sun, looks into some of the dark places, spreads a little Light in the key core places, gives him a hug. She listens to Pluto’s hum. He tells her what to be careful about, shoots her a little healing and on she goes. Sun himself gets there 3:36 AM Pacific on the 11th. That can be one of the most wealthy combinations in the zodiac! It can be major healing or transitioning right out of this life. Relationships are crucial. Do the right thing. Mercury makes the connection 12:01 PM Pacific the 18th. Believe me, it will be a crazy day for some. Wild things open the doors and Mercury will be there to take a look, OMG! That info will be recorded and passed along, possibly quite carefully. Could be wiser to observe and hold for later. If it’s revelation time, then go with it, but stay safe. All these connections will have root resonance in the Eclipse. Take some time that day to think what outcomes you would like and keep that in mind as you make your decisions.

Saturn closes to less than 3 degrees of Pluto when Saturn retrogrades, turns back, April 29, 2019. They don’t conjunct until January 12, 2020! That will be a heck of a time! The conjunction occurs in another Capricorn 5 Planet Stellium. Jupiter stands alone, but Sun, Saturn, Pluto and Mercury, 4 planets, are ALL WITHIN 3 DEGREES of each other! Since Pluto has been in Capricorn for some time, having Saturn, Capricorn’s planet, there too will certainly amplify the Capricorn factor. Saturn, the Builder, wants to make sure Pluto achieves his goals! Pluto might take the troublemakers down, could be a major power play, take over! Financially it could be our worst fears, depression like circumstances. Gird your loins! Saturn/Capricorn might bring the law and Pluto doesn’t get away with it anymore. Saturn with Pluto happens on average every 34 years. It will have prime significance to the 2020 Presidential election. 

Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, classically has to do with money, inheritances, mortgages, taxes, insurance, bankruptcy, funding, lifelong love/cheating, intimacy and sexuality, obsessions, murder/rape, medical research/healing – extremes. Vitally it has to do with toxins/poisons/sewage and clean water – purification. Capricorn/Saturn is one’s life work, community reputation, fathering/mentoring, elderhood. It is the Builder/architect, timing, being a realist, Law and Science, sustainability – exemplary wise use of resources, composers, the CEO or doing as you are told. 

So many important things are on the table. Call in your experts, get educated, share and learn, VOTE, encourage others to vote! Support leaders for change that affects us for the better, long term sustainability for our children. What we do now makes a difference to the 2020 outcome, and that to the future beyond.

Venus in Scorpio Outside the Stellium!

At the Full Moon Venus was sweet on Neptune. Now she has just been loving on Chiron. From the DreamMaker to the the Shaman. She brings Neptune’s spiritual impressions that Chiron may apply the latest ones to his healing work. It’s a smooth transference because they are both in Pisces. Chiron can be good in partnerships and business. Venus in Scorpio introduces valuable connections both for love and money! She sees what will bring the most rewards, has added her touch of beauty and class, charisma, and lots of love. Makes a difference. 

Venus will inconjunct, obliquely connect with, Uranus in Aries. They are so very different. Venus wants a personal connection; Uranus in Aries is looking far ahead, single handedly at times, rarely even wants a personal connection. She may catch a glimpse of what he sees, but she will likely remain on her track. Scorpio has power from within. Uranus has power from humanity. She could do fundraising for his amazing cause. His tribe could become her tribe, but the connection with him personally isn’t likely no matter how fascinating he is, and few catch her eye. But with or without him, she will find herself wondering about the road less traveled. She’s no wimp and Scorpio, though can be the deepest of partners, also likes being perfectly alone. Don’t be surprised if you find her at an unexpected place happily all by herself. On her new motorcycle.

Stretch your Spirit in every direction. Laugh with the Capricorn Wizard! S/he’ll take you there!

Pluto Conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at His South Node!

Pluto Ecliptic South Node Line of Nodes Diagram Capricorn

The Line of Nodes is the intersection between the orbital plane of Pluto (purple) and that of Earth (white). Because Pluto’s orbit is significantly inclined relative to the ecliptic plane, node crossings are rare, and because Pluto’s orbit is eccentric, they occur in 87 and 161 year intervals. Credit: Anne Verbiscer

Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic, north to south, at South Node, at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! That’s a stunner 248 year event few ever experience! Last time it crossed south to north September 4, 1930 – NASA says it was 1931. 1930 was when Clyde Tombaugh discovered Pluto! And it was in the time of the US Great Depression. Pluto is known for extremes and financial events. It will take 161 years to reach its North Node, 2179.

The last time it crossed north to south, like it is now, was July 2, 1770, the day after Comet Lexell passed the closest to Earth than any other comet in recorded history!

The Line of Nodes is the intersection of the plane of the Earth’s orbit and a planet’s orbit. If the planet is near one of these intersection points at the time of opposition, they were mid 2016, it is in near-perfect alignment with the Earth and Sun.

Astronomer Anne Verbiscer asks did the fact that objects tend to be brighter, sometimes exceptionally so when they are near opposition, also increase Tombaugh’s chances of making his famous discovery? She explains that Pluto was definitely brighter at that time due to the “opposition effect.” Sometimes it is a dramatic increase in reflected sunlight that occurs when a planet, moon, asteroid or comet is at opposition.

Opposition is every year when planets orbiting the sun beyond Earth’s orbit reach what astronomers call “opposition,” when they appear in the sky at the position opposite that of the sun. See more!

Ecliptic Sun's Path Ring of FireA Blip on the Ring of Fire!

Per Wiki ‘The ecliptic is the circular path on the celestial sphere that the Sun appears to follow over the course of a year.’ The term also refers to the plane of this path, which is coplanar with Earth’s orbit around the Sun. That’s why Pluto crossing the Ecliptic is so strongly linked with Earth! They are all lined up! Since Earth tilts, they would be even more lined up if this happened at one of the Equinoxes!

Oct 30, tiny yet powerful Pluto will be at 18 Capricorn 58, his South Node, descending! In this context, Pluto is entering his own Underworld for the next 161 years. This downunderness is a natural place for Pluto, Scorpio’s planet. It thrives in deep environs, places that could be dangerous, that challenge you to the core. They want to clean up messes, know what makes things tick, what to do at the thresholds of life and death. They carry the midwife’s basket and comfortably work at Hospice. They are pros at Wall Street and on the Market. They see the struggles, failures and successes and try their hand at it all too. Stealth and Wealth.

The Ecliptic doesn’t move; Pluto is the one that is moving, relative to it. Pluto is going to be immersed in the Trail of Light. From flaws to profound keen Healer, all is revealed. Pluto will stand in the Path of the Heart of Light, bathing in the greatest battery, Light charger, possible. What doesn’t work – poor health, a suffering or mean attitude, useless compulsions – may be burned away, offered up and released to the Solar winds. What’s left, what does work may stand clearly and be enhanced like a pure energy.

Relationships may be profoundly adjusted. More love, more sharing, more standing together for their life’s causes. They may keep a low profile, privacy a strong tool, but you will sense their combined formidable power. If it is time to dissolve, may it be done with dignity and respect.

If any planet can do it, Pluto can! The ability to transform, Dark to Light, is his profound business. The Phoenix rises from its own ashes. You may hardly recognize him when you see him next. Pluto is in Capricorn now. Pluto is destruction, clearing obstacles, detoxing, cleansing, resurrection! Capricorn is the builder, renovation. Together they restore and enhance with the best materials and devices current times have to offer! Sustainably. Capricorn is the Father, dedicated, responsible, condensing power, compounding the interest! Saturn is in Capricorn, his own sign, too, so these will be truly productive times for those who put in the effort. Intuition will be strong, work will be focused right at the critical junctures.

August 11th’s New Moon Solar Eclipse will be the closest lunar event by degree of 2018 preceding Pluto on the Ecliptic. It will be at 18 Leo 42, only minutes from the degree at the Ecliptic Oct 30 (18 Capricorn 58)! It will be what we astrologers call an inconjunct line-up, 150 degrees, one sign off from being opposite.

Inconjuncts invite us to take a look aside, pay attention to the perimeter, adjust our perceptions, expand our awareness. They can be scary, nagging, irritating, distracting, intriguing. We may find ourselves exploring that side road, taking the unexpected detour, sometimes never coming back! Life shifts as we acquire new information, get to know new peoples, or know the ones we know in a new way.

Capricorn has intentions and Pluto can be obsessed, together unyieldingly determined! But Leo is the sign of Light and Heart, a 5 Star+ general! Secret powers are revealed, elevated and revered. Leo is a generous sign, and Leo being our Sun’s sign, radiates this heart energy to all, whether their heart is open to it or not, doesn’t matter, the Sun shines. We are warmed in places where fear held us cold; we relax and find ourselves able in ways we thought were lost or would never be attained.

Mars and Mercury are both Retrograde in our Solar Eclipse chart! They are turning the soil so to speak! Mars is at 0 AQ leaving square Uranus, about to return to Capricorn. The amazing inspiration of Uranus, AQ’s planet, and being in genius AQ, is right between our eyes, and Capricorn will build it! Mercury is at 14 Leo leaving square Jupiter in Scorpio. He is bold and bright and big minded with a huge smile! He sniffed out some terrific ideas and is taking them home. Seeds in the planter!

Be present with open hearted Spirit August 11. A New Moon brings new beginnings. A Solar Eclipse is a direct lineup of Moon and Sun, access to our Light Bearer, this time potently in his own sign! Hold your gathering Circles as close to the exact time as possible. They are like a magnet and increase energy more than 10 fold! It is at 2:58 AM Pacific time. Perhaps hold Circle the evening before to protect, enhance the Gateway, or if you are a solitary practitioner, hold Light before, at the Threshold, and after the exact time. Those of you who hold Light at this time, with intention, will be holding bright energy from then through Oct 30! LightKeepers are needed.

Oct 30 the SUN will be at 7 Scorpio 30 along the Ecliptic. Scorpio is Pluto’s Sign! The Sun is ON! It’s a merger of Dark and Light, both valuable in their own way. Through this kindred energy, Pluto, on the Sun’s circle, will have more courage and ability to be resonant because Light isn’t his natural element. Take some time that day to feel the effects of Light on Light, Light on Dark.

Will Pluto leave its scent as it crosses through this energy plane/portal? It must! Will we feel it when the Sun conjuncts the Oct 30 Capricorn point Jan 9, 2019, and when Sun next makes his annual conjunction with Pluto two days later Jan 11, 2019 at 20 Capricorn 56? And what about Oct 30, 2019?! Let’s sit with it and see what we get! Pluto moves only 3 degrees a year, slowly. This degree is still very close. Take some time, these important dates, to feel what Pluto, Sun, and Scorpio are channeling to us. Light itself may need cleansing, recharging. The Dark may need purifying so it may function cleanly to be a protective shield or be a safe place to have deep thought and alternate perception. Dawn and Dusk become more special, times of blending their forces.

There are longer term aspect events as well! If you are strongly affected by the Pluto/Ecliptic, note these dates on your calendar!

  • First is the uncommon Nov 11 2019 Transit of Mercury at 18 Scorpio 56! It is six minutes (of space) conjunct Jupiter’s sextile Pluto position Sep 12, 2018 at 18 SC 50, the closest aspect preceding Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! The Transit is only two minutes of exact sextile to the Pluto/Ecliptic point at 18 Cap 58! See more below!
  • As Saturn travels its own sign Capricorn, along with Pluto, it makes three important connections. June 18, 2019, it sextiles Neptune from 18 Capricorn 43. Dec 10, 2019 it conjuncts the 2018 Pluto/Ecliptic position! January 12, 2020 it conjuncts PLUTO at 22 Capricorn 46, on average a 34 year event!
  • Last, Jupiter squares Neptune June 16 2019, two days before Saturn sextiles it from 18 Capricorn 43. Jupiter exactly conjuncts the Pluto/Ecliptic position in Capricorn on Feb 26, 2020! It then moves on to conjunct Pluto three times during 2020. In addition, Oct 12, 2020, it sextiles Neptune from 18 Capricorn 45!

This #18 now holds fascination! Number One is Initiation, action, leadership, being first! 8 is the Infinity number. Comprised of two circles touching, it is thought of as a ‘figure’ 8. For some of us it is the ultimate dynamic of the Möbius loop. It irrevocably bonds our souls equally yet we are discreetly different. We are in a fusion of action, each compellingly and continuously involving the other with every breath! Laying on its side, perhaps 8 is the power of two as one, we ‘know’ each other intimately forever, maybe good and evil. Vertically, it can symbolize the always day and night sequence, or as above, so below. One and eight add to Nine, in numerology, the completion. By definition nine has the qualities of all the numbers, represents spirituality, mystical knowledge, even thought of as a sacred number… The symbolic calling here is profound. Eighteen might be thought of as the Initiation of Union.

Yes, Oct 30 is months away (this written Feb 16, 2018), but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or Wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Stay with working the solutions, steady in the Light.

Many astrologers think this is a several years long event. I agree. You don’t wake up that day and say, wow, I can feel Pluto at the Ecliptic and its over! It’s a process, a sense of it, a learning how to transform Dark to Light, merge Dark and Light work with those mediums. Not a 5 minute affair. You need to practice in all kinds of circumstances, become seasoned. It’s not just for yourself but to be capable to be that healer/teacher for others as well.

The Fixed Star Deneb is at 19 Capricorn 48 in the constellation Cygnus, the Swan! It is less than 1 degree of Pluto’s South Node. Swans are the sweeties! Grace, beauty. The Swan symbolizes to make sound, to take flight! Deneb is one of the three stars of the huge Summer Triangle in the sky! Deneb links with Lyra in Lyre the Harp, beautiful etheric music, and Altair in another bird constellation, Aquila, the fierce bird of prey, the Eagle! Raise your vision. Let go of old weight, spiritual and otherwise, that no longer serves; fly your good powers clean and well. Use your keen perception to heal and serve right on target. Make beauty, beautiful sound, take flight, rise above!

Here is another look at the immediate cosmic schedule! Pluto at the Ecliptic starts a TEN day sequence of aspects to Jupiter changing into its own sign Sagittarius Nov 8! Pay special attention to Nov 6, 7, 8!

Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at its South Node – a 248 year event!

Oct 31 Halloween. Always magical to try on different roles, acknowledge the ancestors and their wisdom.
Nov 1 Jupiter trine Chiron one time in water signs. Maximum learning, healing, opportunity, possible marriage – but don’t do it yet!
Nov 6 Uranus back into Aries. No sleeping dogs! Champions and leaders are back on call! Time to rethink ideas.
Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon! A look into the Underworld, our deepest motives. Jupiter inconjunct Uranus. It never was meant to be a straight path! Deviate with the best of them!
Nov 8 Jupiter in his own sign Sagittarius! The pleasure is your purpose!

To add a little spice to the trail, Venus Retrograde hostesses this intense 10 day sequence! She is retrograde until Nov 16, the same day Mercury retrogrades! What she reverses and modifies, Mercury will be thinking and communicating about. We will collectively be revising many of our values, our sense of beauty, what we feel good about in ourselves, who we want to spend our precious time with and why. Our wants will be changing and the ways we go about getting our needs met will change.

Venus is at 0 Scorpio when the conjunction occurs. The next day she is back in her sign Libra, rebalancing relationships that are quickly going through stunning changes! She connects us with specialist shamans that open gates to future healing. Your relationship with yourself changes. As Uranus returns to Aries Nov 6, Venus is on the spot, helping him renew or establish new connections. She helps the Scorpio Nov 7 New Moon bring ideas to the surface to be linked far and wide. She is at Jupiter’s side as he shifts from Scorpio to Sagittarius, spreading the word that he will be visiting soon, showing the value of his teachings! She knows the anthropological factors that back up what he says.

It is while within that Taurus preview that Uranus hosts Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30! In Taurus, the most stable of the Earth signs, the Pluto/Ecliptic transmissions are grounded and stabilized. Venus Rx, on the spot, is doing her best to shift what she can while the excitement is happening. It’s her best chance. Taurus is one of her signs, so they have a certain understanding. He recognizes her excellent assessments, and gives them priority.

You see how intricate and several-years extensive this complex of events is! It will change us as the days and years go by. Some will be so apparent; some will be so subtle.

Pluto will bring more Light than ever thought possible! Light on Light, Light in the Dark! Jupiter with Chiron further opens the gates of healing and teaching in water signs Scorpio and Pisces. Uranus back in Aries restores unions of leaders of leaders! We WILL proceed. The Scorpio New Moon finds the deepest re-solutions. Jupiter inconjunct Uranus finds an alternate Path to skirt the blocks, open new territory. PathFinder Jupiter in Sagittarius knows where to go! Keeps the Faith.

Those of you with factors in your chart from 5 to 10 degrees (Oct 30 Sun’s degree at the Ecliptic), especially in Scorpio or 16 to 21 degrees (Oct 30 Pluto at the Ecliptic degree), especially in Capricorn, will have the most potent contact. Take some time out, alone or in the power of a Circle, to receive. The rest of us are counting on you to give us the keys we need to carry that Light forward for a long time to come. I imagine it may take some time to put it into perfect words and working order. That’s ok, but don’t take too long, the planet needs the info soonest. Even if you are awkward at first, some will understand immediately. They too will be guided, but we need you to get us started! Plant those StarSeeds where they will count!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving Unfinished that lies in darkness, that when raised up releases us from the chains of eternal suffering.

Anne Verbiscer says ‘We won’t know just how bright Pluto can get until 2018, but you can be sure we will be watching to find out!’ There won’t be another crossing until December 11, 2178!


This Pluto encounter will be indelibly memorable to those whose charts are linked to it. With such events it can take years to understand their full meaning. But this one has some help! Nov 11, eleven, eleven, 2019 is the TRANSIT OF MERCURY! Not only is this Transit of Mercury important for its own sake, but it is the MESSENGER for our current PLUTO CONJUNCT THE ECLIPTIC!!! This event is at 18 Capricorn 58. The Transit is at 18 Scorpio 56, only 2″ (minutes) from an exact sextile!!! The main commonality is both are related to the Sun! The Ecliptic is the Sun’s Path through the heavens. The Transit of Mercury is when Mercury crosses the Sun! Mercury observes this 2018 event and in 2019 will be at a maximum position to express Sun’s intention as purely as possible.

Sextiles have special energy as communicators! Why are we not surprised?! Exactly what it takes to do this job. The planets are linked in mixed compatible elements, in this case Pluto in Capricorn Earth then Mercury in Scorpio Water. Pluto in Capricorn is a powerful position. It has to do with money, funding, and people in charge of operations. It is healing and elders. It is cleansing and right timing. Relationships that have eternal meaning. It’s the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes in league with the Great Builder.

Truly, Mercury has important things to think about, communicate about, to translate and transfer point to point. Mercury is in Scorpio, PLUTO’S sign, alert to what this all deeply means, and will carefully place the insights with people most capable of carrying the best forward! He will be quite discreet as revelations happen. Having just been with the Sun, the Light of all our Lights, his potency will be recognized and he will be listened to. Scorpios don’t waste time with idle chatter.

If your chart is activated by Pluto at the Ecliptic, it will also be activated by the Transit of Mercury! Imagine the power of children born during these events! They, we, are Messengers of the Light.

Capricorn, Beyond Amazing!

Capricorn Bukkane Goats Capra Hircus Ireland

Fantastic wild Bukkane Goats (Capra Hircus), at the Cliffs of Moher, Co. Clare, Ireland. Not native to Ireland, these animals were once domesticated, but over the hundreds of years since their introduction have established themselves as a wild population.

“Very naughty goats [not the ones above].” The [Exmoor UK] villagers have tried shooting and poisoning. They have paid for modified cattle grids and ambitious mass relocations. Still their washing lines are raided, their cricket greens are destroyed. Now they are trying contraceptives!

Worldwide, domestic goats are well loved and a nuisance at times! Wild or domestic, they are utterly amazing! They have strength beyond comprehension. Unbelievable surefootedness. Their tenacity knows no bounds. They are used as pack animals because they survive well in remote isolated places. Smart and clever beyond words. They utilize rocky harsh sparse spaces others couldn’t begin to. Wherever they are they find food, anything and everything. Intrepid.

You know, you will never really domesticate your Capricorn. There is an untamable Spirit that shows through no matter how proper, sometime stuffy, seemingly obedient they are. There is always a tiny twinkle of perversity that often pays off when they find a better way no one expected! They are supreme scientists and researchers. They make do with little and even that is done potently, no moment or material wasted. Ultimate sustainability experts that reuse everything. They have endurance that defies natural law.

And don’t mess with them too much. Even human goats have those horns, a hard head to butt with and butt back with. They can come after you or defend you. If they defend you, you have a true champion, otherwise evacuate now, LOL! Since that strength is there, they may be difficult to reason with at times. They can just get away with it because they are so smart otherwise. They are valued and respected in most regards, and the rest is allowed. Happens both in relationships and business. So if you are the Cappie, be aware of this foible and kindly listen and moderate your behavior as makes sense.

Human goats need to watch their bones and skin and hair and nails and teeth. But especially their knees. Clearly an uphill fight is no problem in your mind. With those knees, concentrated strength and agility, scaling the heights is a natural. Mountainous terrain, snow and ice or local business challenges, accruing professional degrees, being the CEO are no problem. Sometimes though Capricorns need to reasonably take the soft side – surrender, be humble, ask for help, get down to the same level as children and shorter beings. Some things just can’t be ordered to happen. Your knees are your sacred barometer.

Capricorns are generally stronger as they get older. They pay keen attention as they move through life. Experience and wisdom play important roles. Timing is one of their special talents. They know when to pause, stand completely still, make a move, rest, charge and get it done now and don’t stop until it’s done! They excel at self-control and dedication. They work hard and expect you to also. They are grand mentors and it’s so worth it to work with them. They love you loyal.

Younger and some Caps can be fearful, mainly afraid of what people think. That’s a tough one. Sometimes it just takes some living to get through it. Other times, talk it through with friends, with an experienced other person you trust, a good counselor. Hang out with people who have a good track record and hold strong ethics. Just being in their company shows you how they operate and without realizing it, you will come by some good behavior by simple transference. Be your best natural Self. Failure, mistakes and being wrong are forgivable and can be changed soon as you find out how! You can do it.

Not only do Capricorns build people, but are masters of construction, real estate, and are impressive architects. What they build lasts forever for the least price and the best materials. They are only too aware of hardship and danger. Strong timbers, stonework that won’t fail, insulated glass to reduce living costs. Sustainability makes sense to them. They are at their best fitting the building to the lay of the land and local resources. Some of their lodges, corporate headquarters, temples, are works of art.

Magician or High Priestess, Capricorns can be stumbly funny or ruthless! Sometimes they don’t even know what they are capable of!

You are in good company! David Bowie, Denzel Washington, Stephen Hawking, Michelle Obama, Kate Middleton, John Legend, Ellen DeGeneres and so many more! Many have come from nothing and nowhere to somewhere! We are so proud of you all!

Outer Planet Transits with Capricorn 2017 – Jan 2019!

May you enjoy many treks or road trips with superb scenic views! Hiking Angels Landing, Zion National Park, Utah

We are now, since Nov 11, at the third aspect of a string of astrologically positive aspects that adventure through Nov 1 2018! Two of those aspects will have a strong focus since they will be traveling closely together several months at a time.

  1. Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Capricorn’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see. Uranus shifts from Aries to Taurus. Chiron shifts from Pisces to Aries. They will both be in Aries April 17 to May 15, Uranus passing the baton to Chiron. Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8. 
  2. RETROGRADES emphasis! July 25 to Aug 18 we have a Mars/Mercury double retrograde. Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back!.

With the multiple sign changes and retrogrades, things will be dug up, soil turned, soups, stews and mixed salads made! We will all be quite different and get used to multiple kinds of change! We will be more comprehensive, more aware and alert to things we never considered before, expanded – to say the least!

Pluto in Capricorn reaches the beginning of the last third of Capricorn May 2018 moving from 18 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! Those of you with Sun and other factors in Capricorn from 0 to 19 degrees 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 planets in Capricorn. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials so show it. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Hang on!

Neptune is in its own sign, a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. Capricorns often surprise people with their spirituality. They are the sign of Ceremonial Magic, the Magician. Since they are realists, they often ‘see’ absolutely accurately, psychically. Cap is the composter, Neptune plays their music back to them to get the sound of life. Neptune softens and flows, Capricorn’s abilities refine, whether it is interactions with people, loved ones, or doing business. At some times their responses seem muted, but watch and listen carefully. Good chance it’s important.

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 2 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the maturity 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 fire sign Aries, the First of everything, Capricorn is sometimes shocked! That could be scared or awaken an inspiring new chance. Sometimes Capricorns forget the zest they once had. Uranus the ChangeMaker loves to see that spark come back to life! One ember will do the job. At times Cappies can feel so all alone, keeping integrity in spite of taunts or scorn. Uranus has a crew of hotshot warriors/warrioresses ready to stand at your side, hold you in a Circle of Light, burn away the dross and raise you up to the next level. At first you aren’t sure about these upstarts, but you will find your way. They are glad they invited you!

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Another earth sign, Capricorn, likes common sense and practical. Uranus, though perhaps slowed a bit in Taurus, nevertheless likes change, and Taurus doesn’t give up. They have the horses and the plow, that soil will be turned. This Taurus pace is more comfortable for Capricorn. They have protected principles for centuries, so hold strong, but in the gentle caring face of Taurus they feel more safe to consider additional options. Taurus knows value, Uranus assesses instantly. They see the good in you that is worthy of their support. Uranus in Taurus makes the land fertile, is innovative in sustainable matters. It will make your properties more valuable in the long term. Step up now.

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, covers 24 Pisces to 2 Aries, the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes, Aries initiates. Chiron enters Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees and signs, 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 too!

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Though also in Pisces, Neptune is between 11 and 17 degrees while Chiron is in the last degrees, 24 to 29. Your chart factors need to match up with these degrees for them to have effect. Neptune is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Like with Neptune, Chiron plays Capricorn’s music! Somewhat like Capricorn, Chiron was a loner for a long time, but did amazing work as a healer and teacher. Chiron has natural skills this way and passes them along to Capricorn for personal use, to give to loved ones, and use in business. Marriage could be in the offing.

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! During those years, Chiron will be challenging Capricorn to stand up to his full height, no drooping shoulders. Some old ways will be abandoned, Cappies sad for the losses, yet knowing it’s time to try out what’s on the cutting edge. At times they will resist, and thankfully preserve what remains valuable. It will take some dancing to decide when to do which. Chiron in Aries wants to heal our Spirits. Spirit being invisible, it may be a little difficult to prove your point to Capricorn. They want the facts. So go for visible effects, results, to make your point.

SATURN
builds from 0 to 13 Capricorn now through Jan 2018. Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign, 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 make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! In its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 0 to 13 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through 2018! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – 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. 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, 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! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Capricorn has no problem with his own planet! Saturn reinforces all that Capricorn stands for. Being the best Father/parent possible, being responsible, known for doing reliable work, keeping commitments realistically, being on time. If Saturn finds shortcomings, Capricorn accepts that, always wanting to be the best he can be. If there are emotional or physical changes that need making, it can be scary to make the changes, what if I fail or what I try doesn’t work? But Caps a worker, so even if it is a small beginning, he does what he can to get started. If the first way doesn’t work, find out more, try another. Do it as you can, a bit at a time if necessary. You may be on your knees now and again, but you can do it! Hats off, kudos! Such courage, so very proud of you.

JUPITER
moves from 15 Scorpio to 19 Sagittarius!

Jupiter in Scorpio! Scorpio wants you to heal, to heal your relationship and be healed by them, and increase your financial potential! Scorpio charisma is compelling, and has nothing to do with beauty. It is from a wellspring within. Scorpio is doctorhood, from cleansing your personal plumbing, purging toxins, to forensics. Scorpio often has extraordinary personal healing capacity, and can save your life too! They want to know how things work, do research. Jupiter may take Scorpio worldwide to seek investments, study shamanistic skills, find answers to lifesaving questions. Old remedies the midwives knew may come back into use. Through journalistic research justice may come for those who have suffered long extreme abuse – land grabs, sexual abuse, calculated theft, slavery/human trafficking, murdering of children and animals. Secret factions may unite for prevention, education, exposé and social justice. Be safe. If you aren’t up to par, take time out. Let your Ninja 6th sense and stealth protect you.

Capricorn is sextile Scorpio and finds opportunities in all that Scorpio brings! Lucky Jupiter rules Sagittarius, the sign that precedes Capricorn. Jupiter wants to set Capricorn up with big ideas, a plan to match them, a goal that takes them to the top! Education makes a difference. Incorporating ideas from many cultures enhances the whole operation, broadens its scope and success can come from many directions. Capricorn can be skeptical, and Jupiter can sometimes seem runaway, but the ideas are there to be explored. Jupiter and his ideas have excellent longevity. They may not be wholly feasible at once, but Capricorn is great at timing, and can find his way along the chain of command! Yes!

‘Learning is never cumulative, it is a movement of knowing which has no beginning and no end.’  Bruce Lee – double Sagittarius, Sun conjunct Ascendant + 4 planets stellium in Scorpio. See his phenomenal Chart

If your Jupiter is in these degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, 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 2018 Outer Planet Sign Changes Timetable:

Apr 17 Chiron from Pisces to Aries
May 15 Uranus from Aries to Taurus
Sep  25 Chiron Retrograde from Aries back into Pisces
Nov  6  Uranus retrograde back into Aries
Nov  8  Jupiter from Scorpio into own sign Sagittarius!

Happy Birthdays, Capricorns! Be blessed and best!

Sagittarius! I’ll Take You There….

Sagittarius Kirkwood Mountain Resort Lake Tahoe CA

Mid November might find you at ski resorts, flying down slopes, or warming by the fire after a glorious day! Working at or on holiday, lights are on at Kirkwood Mountain Resort, Lake Tahoe CA Snow Report Forecaster Bryan Allegretto

‘I’ll take you there’ has a lot of options. A great trail guide, the Path through your neighborhood, a horse you love, buying a truck with 4 wheel tires, super sex, teaching sign language to the deaf, practicing your Faith, a march for land or people, being an informant. You might become famous or infamous or teach for 40 years seeing many changes. Your lucky chance may have put you on the map. You may think you have missed it and are regrouping, or you are still waiting for your time to come! Life takes many turns and has many precious moments!

A backpacker pal of mine always said ‘Pick a room with a view!’ That meant where you stopped for a trail break, to placing your tent for a perfect wake up view to start your next day. In your life, pick a room with a view – great people, a job that fills your heart, a location that sings to you, a home that sleeps you peacefully and requires only an amount of care that lets you be away for a period of time with no regrets!

Location, location, location! In Sagittarius’s mind, that’s often one to another, plenty of vacations! In business that can mean a franchise, import/exports, additional locations or special production locations! Sagittarians learn quickly and often move on, and it may not be on your schedule. Surf’s up in Africa or Australia (Sagittarian continent), snow fell & slopes are open! However, if your Sag has Mercury and/or Venus in Capricorn, they may stick around, quite dedicated to the work, or be excellent business people in world businesses that require travel. It’s more planned than impetuous.

What a rich fantasy life! Or it may be 100% real. They travel for food and culture and write the book or blog on world cuisine. Their observations of sacred places are keen, forthright, and show a perspective that paints an irresistible picture of an adventure that is there in the offing. If they aren’t writing, they are publishing! They recognize a good read! Images of world people make you want to go there to help or be taught or both…or just be with them for a time. Sagittarians give you outrageous tips on how to travel cheap or in luxury beyond compare! You may need physical assistance – hire a travel helper, get the perfect accommodations and choose gentle nearby places to see by transportation. If you are young and at prime, it may be no less than Kathmandu, and often cross country! Depending on your game, you might be traveling through sacred portals checking out other dimensions!

Goofy or brilliant, friendly, great storytellers, Sagittarians are usually welcome wherever they go. They are interested in who you are, what you believe, what you do and how you do it. They don’t mind getting dirty, love dancing at night! Sadly, there are times the TruthTeller is unknowingly rude with questions or comments, or offensively loud per the occasion. True, sometimes there are unfriendly areas or times of danger with narrow escapes! But lucky as they are and always forward thinking, without thinking they have already subconsciously, intuitively noted backdoors and escape routes. They are quick to respond, and they are away!

Sagittarians are a spirited fire sign and generally healthy forever! If you are senior, the backcountry and off the beaten track days may be over. A tour group, places that have medical services you might anticipate needing are your best choices. Otherwise you might be perfectly able to take your chances and the local shaman will take care of you. Rest at the Temple. When you are in town, at home, take good care of your body. Do what keeps your health. Avoid long term behaviors that have consequences later on. Aging is a reality and it always comes sooner than we want, LOL!

Relationships may be a challenge. Saggies can make big promises and tell you what they think will make you happy because they want you to be happy. But it may not be them that is the one. At first arrival they might think they can do it, but then they are gone. If they have a history of traveling, see if you would like to go with them. If you aren’t made of the same stuff, at some point you may come home and they go on. Could be bittersweet – the adventure of a lifetime, but you miss them terribly. So get to know your Sag. They are big Souls. If you always wanted to go on a big trip, do it. But don’t keep them prisoner.

Some Sagittarians are quite opinionated, narrow minded, and passionately so! If you are of the same opinions, no problem. Most have a wide angled philosophy, glad to meet anyone, anywhere, anytime! Half horse, half human, Sagittarian centaurs are their own brand of ‘biracial!’ They are naturally accommodating of, tolerate differences, or, in fear of their own true wildness, vehemently oppose difference! The open side of them learns from every race, culture, faith and age. They see the goodness each has to offer. But if the range of strange they are capable of is too much for you, it’s fun to watch for awhile, then you may fade away. The middle ground is good – a few hot opinions, plenty of learning.

They are both hunters and gatherers. They are seekers of greater wisdom. They gather the diamonds as they go. Sag is what we call a mutable sign, adaptable. They can pull off mergers of informations and people like no one else! They magically appear in your life, adjust a few factors, clear up some of your thinking, then vanish to their next spiritual assignment, walking the BlessingWay of all, women and men. As the Winged Pegasus, they fly above guiding the way.

Sagittarius 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Sagittarius Geminids Meteor Shower West

December 13, 14 – The Geminids, king of the meteor showers!

After being washed out by the 2016 December supermoon, the Geminids will come roaring back in 2017 near the New Moon, a darker sky! The famous and bright meteor shower will peak on the night of Dec. 13 and morning of Dec. 14.

The Geminids are considered one of the best meteor showers every year because the individual meteors are bright, and the peak can see meteors stream across the sky at rates as high as 120 meteors an hour. Under light-polluted skies, fewer meteors will be visible.

The Geminids meteor shower is nearly 200 years old, according to known records — the first recorded observation was in 1833 from a riverboat on the Mississippi River — and is still going strong. In fact, it’s growing stronger. That’s because Jupiter’s gravity has tugged the stream of particles from the shower’s source ― the asteroid 3200 Phaethon ― closer to Earth over the centuries.

Outer Planet Transit Aspects Sagittarius 2017 – Dec 2018!

Sagittarius Snowy Mountains Oh, Darling, Let's Be Adventurers

And so we shall!

  1. We are now starting a string of astrologically positive aspects that adventure through Nov 1 2018!
  2. Three outer planets, Uranus, Chiron, and Jupiter, are changing signs in Sagittarius’s year to come. Uranus & Chiron twice, Jupiter once, for a total of 5 times! Expect several maturities, intense endings, primal new beginnings and exciting new intentions with potent new people! There will be reviews as Uranus & Chiron retrograde and regroup in context of what they have been forward to see. Jupiter will enter his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8. 
  3. RETROGRADES! July 25 to Aug 18 we have a Mars/Mercury double retrograde. Oct 5 to Dec 6 Venus then Mercury retrograde back to back!.

Things will be dug up, soil turned, soups, stews and mixed salads made! We will all be quite different and get used to multiple kinds of change! We will be more comprehensive, more aware and alert to things we never considered before, expanded.

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! Water and earth Pluto and Capricorn are at times a challenge for Sagittarius. They have a more collected tone, a powerful distillation of techniques, practices tested by expert elders, that have stood the tests of Time. There may be a serious commitment to be made before joining the ranks, but the reward may be worth it forever. Just be sure you want to know and owe that much. Will you have freedom to make changes of your own? All that may seem somewhat like limits to Sagittarius, but if their goals are in accord, Sag is a clever one, pushing from behind. Sag buoys up the workers ahead, reminding them of the importance of the goal and assuring them they can do it! Good to have them with you!

Neptune is in its own sign, a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. When in those degrees, fiery Sagittarius is dampened, yet inspired by Neptune. Pisces sees beyond within, a greater picture. Sagittarius sees across the valley, follows the path of the arrow arching over the rainbow! Sag is ever optimistic, and sooner or later can see through Neptune’s veil. At times when Neptune would give up, Sagittarius reminds him of the Soul purpose Sagittarius sees in him. Sagittarius is called to step up to Neptune’s music, wordless wisdom, to behold the dreams of the vastitudes beyond a merely earthly journey…

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

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a automatic. In Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries is the first to DO it! Fire and electricity make the world go around! Fiery Sagittarius loves the neverending vanishing point! Journeying is a verb. How far can we go?! Sagittarius’s purposes are stretched to the limit by universal Uranus! Uranus is the SkyKeeper, the one who sees all Humanity. Sagittarius is always skittering and scattering all the jewels of knowledge it can to anyone who will listen and take on the project! Aries is the Leader of New, so they make perfect companions!

Uranus in Taurus invents simple. Taurus tries out the application. It needs to be easy to use, worth the effort. It calls for a steady and practical solution. But Uranus is the Earth Shaker and there may be clusters of shakes! Your life may be loosened, electrified, askew, a bit out of control. Sagittarius may be frustrated by the slow down and delays, but is a mutable, super adaptable sign. It takes the pieces offered, integrates them in such a way that they are innately speeded up, so happy in their most august rightful magical places! Sagittarius may enjoy some slowing down to smell the roses and feel good to have done the deed! Not still for long though, because his long vision eyes and consciousness see more possibilities and he’s off again!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, covers 24 Pisces to 2 Aries, the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes, Aries initiates. Chiron enters Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees and signs, 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 too!

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Though also in Pisces, Neptune is between 11 and 17 degrees while Chiron is in the last degrees, 24 to 29. Your chart factors need to match up with these degrees for them to have effect. Neptune is the Dreamer visionary spiritualist musician, while Chiron is seeking healing, teaching, right relationships and good business. Chiron may approach it from Neptune’s point of view, however because they are both in Pisces, Neptune’s sign! Chiron leads Sagittarius through miraculous channels of energy flow, not a feet on the ground type of traveling. Sagittarius is ever observant, watching the directions, sign posts along the way. He wants to possibly have later access, review the practices of the Healer in action, that he, Sagittarius, may have the divine privilege of teaching to others when they are ready for this magic.

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! During those years, Chiron will be intriguing Sagittarius, a very willing follower on a seemingly inscrutable path. Sagittarius will be seeing not just with his eyes, but with his very Soul! Chiron in Aries will challenge, taunt, and there will be laughs! Kokopelli dances before us, dashing and silly, but has our attention! He is unique beyond words, almost scary, he does know the way better than we do! Sagittarius is right at home!

SATURN builds from 26 Sagittarius, the Galactic Center, to 10 Capricorn now through December 2018. Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020.

Right now Saturn is IN Sagittarius at the degree of the Galactic Center! That leaves only 4 more degrees in very late Sag, 26, 27, 28, 29. Only if you have planets at those late degrees will there be any more activation of them by Saturn in Sag. Work and play. Travel and people. Building and lasting Beauty. Cathedrals. History and future potential. Creating a profound curriculum. Lot of nice options here, connections being made. Learning and observing leads to restored faith and this year, especially as applied to recovery from fires, floods, quakes. Ideas for whole new businesses have and will spring up.

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

Those with Saturn 26 to 29 degree Sagittarius in your charts will be having your Sagittarian Saturn Returns between now and Dec 19! 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. Sagittarians will have their learning place built, the very process teaching hope. 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 because new work you get suits you far better or you start your own business!

In Capricorn, Saturn’s own sign, Sagittarius will be led further than philosophy! Saturn wants to build a place for it! The home with a view, the school that withstands tumults of nature or age. Capricorn assures sustainability, the future Sag has been talking about! Together they see the future and use land and materials wisely. Saturn demonstrates Sagittarian proposals better than Sag could by himself! Sag is corralled into being the project overseer, consultant, even hired from another country that has had the experience. Saturn and Sagittarius are dynamite together! Saturn works like a dog, leaps like a goat! If the cause is dear to Sag’s heart, he’s on board, brings the horses!

Those of you with Saturn 0 to 10 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – 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. 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 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 9 Scorpio to 10 Sagittarius!

Jupiter in Scorpio!
Scorpio wants you to heal, to heal your relationship and be healed by them, and increase your financial potential! Scorpio charisma is compelling, and has nothing to do with beauty. It is from a wellspring within. Scorpio is doctorhood, from cleansing your personal plumbing, purging toxins, to forensics. Scorpio often has extraordinary personal healing capacity, and can save your life too! They want to know how things work, do research. Jupiter may take Scorpio worldwide to seek investments, study shamanistic skills, find answers to lifesaving questions. Old remedies the midwives knew may come back into use. Through journalistic research justice may come for those who have suffered long extreme abuse – land grabs, sexual abuse, calculated theft, slavery/human trafficking, murdering of children and animals. Secret factions may unite for prevention, education, exposé and social justice. Be safe. If you aren’t up to par, take time out. Let your Ninja 6th sense and stealth protect you.

Jupiter in its own sign Sagittarius! Is that running away or running to?! Do they take their teaching seriously or are they traveling nomads who get away with things, literally, because they are fancy free? They may be the head of the university, or home schooling their children. But blue skies and all kinds of weather call them. They have to be moving. They love different lands and people. Import/export businesses have their name on them, but somebody else has to do the paperwork! They are accused of being procrastinators, and maybe so, but to them it’s just doing something else that they like doing better at the time. Many don’t want to be tied down by home ownership or kids, even marriage. If you are lucky, you may get to join them on their travels. Having a school in a foreign land or two or three, combines that travel lust and sharing the knowledge. They are natural born Seers. They are potently aware of shifting perspectives, directions and future potentials. That’s why they seem so lucky! They are in the right place at the right time. They generally have marvelous health and live long and happy.

‘Learning is never cumulative, it is a movement of knowing which has no beginning and no end.’  Bruce Lee – double Sagittarius, Sun conjunct Ascendant + 4 planets stellium in Scorpio. See his phenomenal Chart

If your Jupiter is in these Scorpio or Sagittarius degrees, you will be having your Jupiter Return! They happen every 11/12 years. Jupiter will bring you big truths or reveal lies. Sometimes it exaggerates your condition, could make it worse, 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.
