Happy Birthdays, Tauruses!

Celebrate our Home, Mother Earth!

Taurus Oaks Murphy Meadow by Ger Erickson

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

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

Taurus Barstow Woolly Sunflower by Tom Egan

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

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

TAURUS 2017 Celestial Highlights!

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

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

Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Taurus 2017-May 2018!

Taurus Golden Sea of Canola Flowers in Luoping, China!

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

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

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

Pluto is just past mid Capricorn, reaches the beginning of the last third of Capricorn May 2018 moving from 16 to 21 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Though Taurus is also an Earth sign, it does not necessarily enjoy the scrutiny of Pluto the planet of Taurus’s opposite sign Scorpio. Yet Pluto sees what is supreme in us as well as flaws that need healing that releases that goodness in us to perform fully. Taurus may be enchanted out of a spot they were not aware they were stuck in. Their solid offerings revealed, Pluto in Capricorn offers them the work!

Neptune is in its own sign, moves from 11 to 16 Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. Taurus likes being grounded and steady. It loves fresh water to moisten fertile land, refresh the body, cleanse the Spirit. Neptune can be subtle, the fog over the land, or the rock music rhythm while you are cleaning house or dancing in the meadow! It makes us wonder, loosens our earthly bonds, be more finely in tune. It helps us remember our dreams, and that not all beauty is of the flesh or money.

Uranus covers 24 Aries to 0 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees will be accomplishing the last year of Uranus in Aries, strengthening the final touches to secure the foundation of the future that Taurus will build on. Change worthy ideas need to be instilled, spread far and wide to create a support network, cleverly woven into our daily fabric so they become a part of us, effortlessly carried on.

Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a automatic. In Aries, the First of everything, it is kin to Aquarius the Awakener! Aquarius is way ahead of its time; Aries is the first to DO it! Tauruses are willing, but by their own choice. They generally prefer daily dependable security. Uranus in Aries is not that! They are perfectly strange and get your attention! This crazy stranger walks onto your property and darned if they don’t have some great ideas! You find yourself switching this and that and when you look up they are gone! You may be inspired to meet with your locals, hire a consultant to update things periodically.

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

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

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

When Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, it will speed up healing at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance! It may make a Taurus head spin, but already we are being tuned up to be ready!

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

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

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

29 year Saturn Returns can make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! If you are on your first Return, you may be having substantial career success, marry, have your first child, buy a home! If you are on your second Return, about age 58, you may be thinking of retirement plans, be called to take care of aging parents. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from experienced experts may be just what you need.

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

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

Jupiter moves from 13 Libra to 23 Scorpio, entering Scorpio Oct 10.

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

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

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

Here’s the coming Sign Changes Timetable:

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

Special request! Pledge to Get Kids Outdoors

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

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


Any of these outer planet factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologers for the whole picture! May it go well with you….

Taurus Advocates, Steady in the Light!

Taurus Pregnancy Blessingway Image by YoginiMomma

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jupiter Sextile Saturn opens many doors, gateways, thresholds....

A time of many thresholds….

Jupiter came within a 5 degree range of Saturn Oct 15, the very day of the Aries/Libra Full Moon! Many astrologers allow that range. Others, due to this aspect being a sextile only allow a 3 degree range. But if you feel it, even before the 5 degrees, it’s active for you! The three degree range starts Nov 2. This aspect is important because though it doesn’t become exact until Aug 27, and then only once, it is continuously close from now until March 6 when Jupiter retrogrades out of the 5 degree range. They don’t get that close again until July 29 through when it’s exact Aug 27. They are quite close 3 1/2 months then another month, so a total of 4 1/2 months they travel closely together in the background. It lasts so long because Jupiter retrogrades Feb 5, 2017, moving very slowly. Their closest connection before Aug 27 was a 2 day period when Jupiter was at 12.5 minutes of Saturn, very less than a degree December 28 (NEW MOON) and 29! That was just after Saturn trined Uranus December 24, Christmas Eve, and Jupiter opposes Uranus December 26! Please see the Holiday Four!

Jupiter may come knocking at your door, take you on a useful journey, opening many more doors, of all kinds, right and left! Saturn is the King of Thresholds, and is an adept keymaker! And when needed, a great locksmith, guardian of the goods!

Jupiter in Libra may increase Saturn’s workload, much to Saturn’s happiness! Successful building, artistic renovation can change the demeanor of an entire neighborhood, up property values. Saturn may be inspired by Jupiter’s far reaching ideas and open a new branch. Business may increase through new partnerships. There may be some sad moments as Saturn realizes what they missed, what has held them back. Knowing they don’t need to do that anymore is a great relief. Forgiveness may be given for mistaken thinking as the truth comes out. Time for healing. Health may get better with age, and respect and recognition given for long term well done work. Jupiter sees the benefits of Saturn’s bedrock solidarity.

Saturn offers Jupiter the consideration of right timing, being able to wait to right action. Jupiter is the valiant hero, but Saturn shows it is sometimes so better to let another have the spotlight and cheer them on! Just because you can, or even because you can do it better, isn’t always the reason to do it! Jupiter is full of vim and vigor, but again, restraint and focus pay off as you do what you do best and do your own appropriate responsibilities. Spreading too thin sometimes depletes our energy. Showing timely accomplishment, dedication, rather than running off for fun, is a good teaching. Doesn’t mean you can’t run off later!!! Or take your career on the road! Saturn has the wisdom of proven experience. At times the smallest achievement is profound.

Fatherhood, mentoring, being a Grandpa to child and grandchild, coaching from sports, career, to life, may take on special meaning. Discovery of new teaching principles may open doors of precious fulfillment! Both teacher as well as recipient will be delighted by their mutual revelations!

Spiritual teachings could be the basis for a turn in your Path. It could come in casual conversation, a scene that comes before you and the Lights go on! Church may call you, or you may be called to go on a Mission – Peace Corps to environmental. It may be a special person that inspires you, or you do the same skills but for a company that serves the world or makes health better for humans or animals.

Students, this is a time you can make good headway. It’s a good combination for both work and play. Take courses taught by Beings you respect and admire for the results of their ways, who inspire you, that make you proud that you have learned so much. It may be a way of life more than the things you have learned, how to live rather than what you live, that is most important. Whether one special thing or many, be grateful for the lifeway given that will carry you forward.

Your Dharma, your mission this life may become joyfully apparent, finally, and a profound step taken in its direction. Might go back to school, a specialty school! You have until the end of next August with this aspect! Make it count!

Back to top


Please, always remember these planetary combinations, transits, are what’s happening in the world. Check with your astrologer to see how they do, or don’t, activate your personal chart! May it go well with you….

Happy Birthdays, Virgos!

Virgo Keanu Reeves with Doggie Andy John Wick

Keanu Reeves loves music, co-founded the band Dogstar in the early 1990s.

Well traveled actor/director Virgo Keanu Reeves was born September 2, 1964 in Beirut, Lebanon, but identifies as Canadian. Of Chinese-Hawaiian heritage on his geologist father’s side, Reeves’s first name translates from Hawaiian to English as “cool breeze over the mountains.”

Keanu got got expelled from high school once, struggled with dyslexia, never got a high school diploma, but that didn’t stop him! And though Reeves often faced criticism for his deadpan delivery and perceived limited range as an actor, he nonetheless took on roles in a variety of genres over the ensuing decade, doing everything from introspective art-house fare to action-packed thrillers. 1999 Reeves starred in a sci-fi film that definitely became a genre game changer—The Matrix. It followed Reeves as prophetic figure Neo, slated to lead humanity to freedom from an all-consuming simulated world. Known for its innovative fight sequences, avant-garde special effects and gorgeous fashion, The Matrix was an international hit.

Reeves is also a longtime motorcycle enthusiast. After asking designer Gard Hollinger to create a custom-built bike for him, the two went into business together with the formation of Arch Motorcycle Company LLC in 2011.

Reported to be one of the more generous actors in Hollywood, Keanu became the caretaker for his sister, Kim, after she was diagnosed with leukemia. During his sister’s decade-long battle, he has donated privately and publicly to numerous cancer charities, research centers, and hospitals. He even set up his own charity but decided against attaching his name to it. Some of the charities he supports are Stand Up to Cancer and the SickKids Foundation. He also supports PETA.

Keanu is a stand up DOUBLE VIRGO! In his case it is the Sun and Ascendant! Plus he has Mercury, Uranus and Pluto in Virgo, a 4 planet stellium all in 5 degrees!!! That’s intense to say the least! He IS a Virgo (Sun), thinks like a Virgo (Mercury), looks like a Virgo (ASC), has strange and wonderful Virgo friends and humanitarian connections (Uranus), and a custom motorcycle (Pluto)!

He has a 3 planet Cancer stellium as well! Moon in its own sign, family very important. Venus with Mars, he loves what he does, took care of his dying sister, and gives generously.

Wealth is assured with his chart! Soon to be 52 Keanu’s net worth is said to be $350M. Venus sextiles Jupiter in Taurus, bounty both held and given. Moon sextile Pluto, well managed mega financial security. Keanu said, ‘Money is the last thing I think about. I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries.” That’s a classic Sun in the 12th house and Moon trine Neptune statement.

The dog? …on the set of “John Wick,” Keanu Reeves lazily lay in bed, curled up with his co-star as they awoke to their 6 a.m. alarm. Reeves enjoyed a smattering of kisses from the cutie before both headed to the kitchen for breakfast. Only this time, Reeves’ co-star isn’t some leggy blonde, but an 8-week-old beagle pup named Andy.

Virgo 2016 Planetary Highlights!

Venus Jupiter Conjunction Aug 27 2016 Astronomy

Spectacular blessing while Jupiter is still in Virgo! Venus and Jupiter will pass incredibly close to each other, only 0.06 degrees apart, in the night sky Saturday, Aug. 27. We won’t have it any closer until Venus occults (eclipses) Jupiter in 2065! It’s called an Appulse! Venus and Jupiter will be in conjunction in astrology at 3:29 PM Pacific. In right ascension it’s at 3 PM, with Venus passing 0.1 degrees north of Jupiter. But that’s not the moment when the two planets are closest to each other. According to Belgian astronomical calculator Jean Meeus, the Appulse moment will come 31 minutes later, at 3:31 PM Pacific. So if you are doing Spiritual work, do it at this potent time! See more at Space.com! In astrology this is considered a major fortunate event bringing love and luck especially to those who have factors in their chart in close positive aspect with 27 Virgo 21! Check with your astrologer!

Virgo 2016 TimeLine!

Mercury retrogrades Aug 30 to Sep 21, bringing thoughtful and sometimes pesky or inconvenient changes! This is followed by 2016’s last ECLIPSES that straddle Jupiter’s entry into Libra Sep 9, followed by Saturn making its last square to Neptune Sep 10. Since Saturn stations (stands still at its turning point, forward out of Retrograde), it is still less than a degree in the square at the last eclipse, will be slowly moving forward away from the sadnesses and losses it brought to so many. There is a considerable shift in attention as Jupiter endorses social Libra, the focus now on how to share the offerings of your talents, developed in Virgo, into meaningful relationships, both business and pleasure! October 23 starts a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that will be the primary aspects of 2017! Jupiter will be in Libra until Oct 10, 2017.

2016 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Virgo!

Virgo Manipura Chakra OrganicsoulManipura Chakra | Virgo Connection | Mirrors of the Human Heart and Mind Image: organicsoul.com

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn, is a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Perfect! Virgo organizes the system to meet the needs of production and saves more time. Virgo is a fellow Earth sign and is pleased with Pluto’s power to get things done. Pluto is also a healer as Virgo is nurse, nutritionist, herbalist. All the secrets of ancient healing Pluto knows helps complete the medicine and psychology of delivery. They may work behind the scenes funding organizations to help the innocent, quell and uplift foes, restore human harmony.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Virgo is as logical as Pisces is the dreamer, believer without facts living on intuition. Pisces lets go, trusts itself to be in the right place at the right time. It shows compassion and the principle that what goes around comes around. Virgo sees it can soften and worry less and still be ok. But when Pisces is in trouble with denial and addictions, Virgo feels called upon to do what they can. Virgo, as teacher/healer must choose wisely where to put their energy. Helpless and hopelessness can take a toll on the healer, so take good care of yourself first.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Unpredictability drives Virgo nuts, yet, some of the genius ideas are true gems and save the day! Virgo gets in patterns and loses the forest for the trees. In a twinkling, Uranus in Aries flips the switch and the whole puzzle needs to be put together again, some pieces gone forever, new ones spicing up the mix! Unusual people come for their services and the new system needs to be adapted to do the job. Surprising help comes along at moments most needed and new teams may be established, new tools make a difference! Your community changes.

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Virgo wants the best for everyone. They work as long as they can still stand, and sometimes it takes someone like Chiron to get in there and pick them up. Virgo needs to pace themselves, get rest, eat regular meals, follow their own advice! Chiron, more sensitive than ever in Pisces, sees how much Virgo wishes to accomplish, recognizes and commends the finer points. Criticism is one of Virgos flaws and foes. Chiron shows them the damage – where their fear is, where it comes from in themselves, how to give more self forgiveness, praise for others to encourage them.

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius in 2016. It retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees. Factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, the 2nd and 3rd times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof – their praise is well earned and means a lot. Saturn in Sagittarius is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Virgo will work hard, pay attention to details, has common sense Saturn admires. Virgo offers help that gets right to the point and they aren’t late to work. They will do as much as they can for the good cause Sagittarius has in mind.

Sagittarius and Virgo are not usually close bedfellows. Even with Saturn of responsibilities, Sag will still run off from time to time. There needs to be a break to breathe! Virgo may understand and willingly hold the fort, or be put off because Sag couldn’t wait until the job is done. Wisely keep that in mind so you can get extra help to take up the slack when needed. With Saturn in charge, you gotta roll with the punches. Sag helps keep the big picture in mind and Virgo on course. Virgo makes sure quality isn’t compromised. If it comes down to a matter of ethics on one or both of their parts, they may wish each other well and part company altogether.

Jupiter in Virgo Virgo is boosted by Jupiter in their sign, but it is only there a few more days, until Sep 9. Jupiter gives perspective and faith in tending and organizing their life, makes sure health flourishes, develops skills for good living. Jupiter is the planet of Sagittarius, a challenge sign to Virgo. They are mutable and both must adapt. Jupiter jokes and Virgo comes up for air and says ‘What? Oh!’ Virgo loves giving on-the-job training, experience in the field is invaluable. Virgo recognizes raw talent, and helps train their student’s delivery, teaches facts and data to establish their credibility. Jupiter loves those out of town seminars and Virgo may find themselves on a last minute excursion. A lucky time for a lot of Virgos! Right now that would especially apply to people with late degree factors harmonious with Virgo. Virgo may feel a little let down with Jupiter gone from their sign. Or they may feel relief to get some rest! Jupiter is a way cheerful planet with big ideas and it takes a mighty Virgo to keep up with that!

Jupiter in Libra (Sep 9) is a volatile Fire in Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Now, instead of all that Virgo work, it’s time to go out and meet some good companions, enjoy some of the fruits of your labor. Go to a museum, the finest restaurants, check out some courses at the university! Your students may be from an array of cultures and traditional herbal techniques shared. It may be time to take up with animal organizations, get legal and political help in behalf of your friends who can’t speak for themselves. Libra is remarkable with design! Quilts to superb crafts tend more to the fine arts side now. Instead of only that morning walk, you might find yourself taking dance lessons! And who knows, you may meet a sweet mate!

 

Any of these outer planet factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologers for the whole picture!

Have a great new year!

Virgo, Everyday Heroes and Heroines!

Virgo Dimensions Organization

Whether it is the right meds, great garden to table veggies, native plants, or proper pet foods, Virgo cares, whether they know you or not! They have plenty of walk around knowhow, and the wisdom of a seasoned spiritual counselor.

Your living conditions aren’t quite right? They will help you with paperwork, mind your budget, even clean your home like never before, clear your clutter. Your bodily and mental health will improve, you will get good airflow, sunlight, get outside for the perfect walkabout per your ability. They instinctively brighten your day and encourage your life. They deserve every bit of pay they receive.

They lovingly care for the ones who can’t speak for themselves. Some give themselves to lifelong campaigns for all kinds of creatures, your kitty, your doggie, to stop cruelty, secure wilderness habitat, save endangered species.

Virgos love you right down to your dirty socks! There is a understanding of natural phases of behavior and growth. Open your heart, they may be way ahead of you. Listen, give honorable time to learning, let changes happen. Virgo learns more from doing than reading, so they tend to want to teach you in the same way. Virgo is what we astrologers call a mutable sign, one that adapts and adjusts, in this case with a good dose of common sense too! What they don’t decipher on their own, they research from reliable sources. They check an array of sources for current thinking, details, and consensus and contradictions. They want to know more than just what; they want to know why.

When it comes to personal liaisons, compatibility is likely a wiser choice. They aren’t often impressed by entertaining dramas that take time away from their important work and meeting deadlines. They are sensitive though sometimes seem impervious to your needs. Orderly routines soothe their Soul. Small infractions or differences can be a make or break matter. Sometimes they can too cleverly complain and next thing you know you have decided you need more praise than blame. Mutual admiration, a respectful equality, is sweet. If Virgo takes on the I’ll help you, teach you, fix you, save you role, the relationship may be a karmic debt being paid, and will last until the patient/student gets the lesson, then the student leaves.

Virgos are extraordinary artists! Quilting gives an example of their unique eye for design, the subtle blends and juxtaposition of colors. The details can be exquisite and often incorporate several skills – padding, embroidery and more exotic talents than you ever knew existed! Virgos are hard workers, persevere until a job is done right and finished. These amazing quilts are highly sought and bring big prices. They are family heirlooms, sometimes for special purposes like wedding quilts. Baby quilts are prized gifts to receive and baby sleeps enfolded in all that love.

In business, tell Virgos what you want, how much time they have, then let them do it. Interfering breaks their concentration and personal process. They are thrifty, and usually will save you money. They won’t cut corners though and your product will be excellent. Frilly is not their forte, so have someone else dress it up and it will be terrific! They can be demanding bosses. Often they are better workers than bosses. They are great observers when asked to, and are super efficiency and analytical consultants. If you want to know where your money is going, how to spend it, they are the best accountants bar none! In times gone by, Virgo may have labored harvesting the grains vital to the community, but in today’s world, they are the most sophisticated techs, holding key indispensable positions linking network to network! They run the office, know the percentages for stock investments, run the spaceship. The physics of robotics is fascinating.

Even as babies, some have little furrowed brows, concerned early on about what’s happening around them. They can be fussy eaters and may startle easily. Keep them well wrapped in your love. As seniors they can be picky and bossy, LOL! And why not, they’ve earned it! Sometimes they are frail with age and a collection of aches slows them down. But also, a lifetime has taught them natural home healing they will use to good avail. They often mellow with age; remembering they were once in that place too. They can be the most caring.

Super love to you Virgos for your ethics, sacrifices, making this world a better place for us all.

New Moon   – Venus/Uranus Trine Galactic Center! Jupiter/Chiron/Uranus!

Tuesday Aug 2, 1:44 PM Pacific at 10 Leo 58

Crescent Moon Woman Feet Up Olbiński
Sweet surrealism by Rafał Olbiński, Polish illustrator, painter, and educator, living in the United States.

Hot pants Mars leaves Scorpio, enters Sagittarius Aug 2 at 10:49 AM Pacific. We’ve got places to go! It finishes the last lap of its retrograde pattern Aug 22, the day the Sun enters Virgo! Much of what has been waded through the past few months, since it started in February, has reached conclusions, some better than hoped for. People will be generous these last 20 days in Sagittarius. Mars is innovative and it is inspiring to see how much you can do yourself! Keep telling the story of your hopes and that moment when the scales tip! Listen for that inevitable support for things you need help with. It may not come in the package you expected, and there may be a go between here and there! With Mars in Sagittarius it may conclude swiftly, so hang onto your hat!

The New Moon is generally thought to be a quietening time, but in fire sign Leo and with Mars, a fire planet, swinging the bat in fire sign Sagittarius?! And just because it is a moonless night doesn’t mean there isn’t a mighty dance going on! This New Moon is in LEO, Father Sun’s sign! He infuses Mother Moon with all the Love he can give! HE IS THE LIGHT! She is so profoundly ‘enlightened!’ She loves him back, and in turn will be distributing that Light to all, especially the children! Leo is one of the teaching signs, a sign of role models. Remember your important impact wherever you are – at the bus stop, the clinic, in front of the City Council! Your bright smile and a hello may save a life. You saw them and respected them with your love. It makes a difference. It’s time to celebrate!

The New Moon makes two close aspects. 1) It has just trined Saturn. Moon and Saturn both have to do with the past, some think Karmic, old matters of Mother/Father. Saturn in Sagittarius reminds us of our intrinsic ethics and responsibilities, our commitments of good faith. Saturn requires our travels to be for more profound reasons, our learning to have purpose and to work hard for our certificates, permits, accomplishments. Leo can be more dramatic than Saturn approves of, but may be the key to getting donations for the cause! A gala! Leo may be late, may be the lazy lion, but when personally motivated, they are unstoppable, sweeping others right along with them, bright inspiration, and it’s fun!

2) Moon and Sun are oblique with Neptune, what we call an inconjunct aspect. Neptune may wither in the glare, and that is noticed. It may not come up in conversation, but a question is posed, what about that? It may be a haunting matter, am I ok, what can I, if I should, do any differently…. Or, Neptune may be immediately on spot, sensing subtle adjustments that make more magic, a support figure you didn’t expect! There may be the reminder not to sell your Soul or disillusioned by too much admiration or drugs that could mar your truest presentation. Some distractions widen our Spirit others are just a bad dream.

The South Node, on a 19 year cycle, is just about to kiss Neptune! Neptune will be a portal to what was a spiritual condition of the past. We may have been a savior or a victim, we may need forgiveness. Current addictions will need addressing. The dragon scales of myths and misconceived judgements will fall away leaving a bare spot, maybe a bit raw at first, a vulnerable feeling. Maybe you need to grab the dragon or maybe you need to be very silent, very still, and just listen.

Jupiter is coming up on the August 12 last opposition Chiron and August 13 last inconjunct Uranus! This is an important set because it will happen in reverse after Jupiter goes into Libra Sep 9. In December, Jupiter will oppose Uranus and inconjunct Chiron the last day of the year! That will be their first encounter in that combination, two more to follow during 2017. What we do now stirs that energy, explores what is needed to make adjustments. Recent events, Orlando, Dallas, bring up the need for a lot more change. The aspect combinations to come starting in December may have more shocking fallout than what has already happened. See more

Mercury in Virgo is making its way to square, challenge Saturn in Sagittarius. Mercury is clever and quick, and Virgo considers how to organize every detail. It can create a smooth working system or something that drudges and falls boringly from its own weight. Let it breathe. Step back, cock your head for a look from a different angle. Saturn in Sag wants to get to the point, and get there on time. Once assessed, the job may be entirely dropped, and rightfully so. Saturn may tell a truth you can’t deny. Or, it may surprise you, corral the pieces and shape things up into a divine working order for very little cost! Might take some contributions of your time, but the project may be most happily salvaged!

Put your feet up. Take a little time to watch the stars, contemplate your place in our mighty Universe. Venus is at 26 Leo, Love & Light! It is making a trine, harmony connection with the Galactic Center at 26 Sagittarius! Venus radiates, sending Bright Blessings! As a receiver, she filters out the shades of gray, anoints with sugar and gold, lets only Love through the Portal. Doesn’t mean Love is always easy, but she does her best to help.x

About the GALACTIC CENTER! It is the center of our great Milky Way Galaxy. Per Paul O Hewit, it is ‘probably the second strongest spot in any astrology chart, following the Sun. It is a stunning source of energy, motivation, and aspiration. The Galactic Center is the Sun of our Sun.’ And, he says ‘Some clients with aspects [planetary connections] to the GC speak of not feeling 100 percent human, or not feeling they have had human ancestry. Their inner dynamic is centered around feeling as if they have come to this planet from some other place.’ Investigative mythologist, William Henry talks about ‘…a race of Stargate time-traveling ascended human beings dwelling at the center of our galaxy, and how each of us can utilize the Stargate through self-improvement. He suggests we are the necessary technology and describes a Stargate technology “kit” that includes a star-crown, mysterious anointing oil and a light-robe called the ‘beaming garment.’ To some of us that sounds like fun! The ultimate trip, time travel and more!

The Galactic Center is considered a point of exchange and huge infusion! The Full Moon August 18 will be at 25 Aquarius 52, almost 26 degrees. The Sun will then be where Venus is now, carrying the Light to that position again! Venus is Love, and Leo, the Sun’s sign, is the sign of the Heart of Light! Take it in, carry it forward.

Walk in Love and Beauty.

Full Grain Moon! Sun-Moon/Uranus Grand Fire Trine/Kite Galactic Center!  Jupiter/Chiron/Uranus!

Thursday August 18, 2:26 AM Pacific at 25 Aquarius 52

Selena Mistress of the night sky, Goddess of the Moon lacquer miniature by superb Russian artist Svetlana Belovodova!
Selena – Mistress of the night sky, the Goddess of the Moon. Sweet miniature lacquer by superb Russian artist Svetlana Belovodova.

Special note: This one is a little confusing. If you are using the Maynard calendars it is listed as a penumbral Lunar Eclipse. But definitions have changed, and per NASA it no longer qualifies. It only grazes the earth’s penumbral shadow and is not visually perceptible.

Celebrating Jupiter Opposite Chiron, Inconjunct Uranus!These Jupiter aspects we just had Aug 12 & 13 are so important because we will be having these planets in reverse aspects starting Dec 2016. Jupiter will be opposite Uranus, freedom matters, and inconjunct Chiron, healing and teaching. Immense changes in store! 2015/16 they were from 18 to 24 degrees but of Virgo, Pisces and Aries. Starting December and during 2017, the aspects will be at 20, 22 and 27 degrees of Libra, Aries and Pisces. Very different tone, some overlapping degrees, some later. See more

Moon and Sun are at 25, just past the Jupiter set that was at 24 degrees, and where Jupiter is now at 25. Mercury is at 23, coming in to reactivate our thinking about recent experiences, reassess, not forget, uplevel another notch. That’s SIX planets in three degrees! Full Moons, Moon opposite Sun, widen our Spirit to maximum capacity! Sun in his own sign LEO is as brilliant as it gets, Light everywhere! Moon in Aquarius is the invitation to expand into extraordinary realms! We can work with others that have great differences and approaches for the same causes! Moon and Sun are in a harmony pattern, called a Bow by some, with Uranus, the planet of Aquarius. Uranus is currently in Aries, the sign of rights fighters, champions, leaders, initiators — new beginnings! May the leaders of leaders join and the battle be well fought and won!

The Full Moon opposition is just leaving, one degree off, from the Jupiter opposition with Chiron. The Full Moon signs precede the Jupiter/Chiron signs. They are considered to give inspiration for the following signs, Virgo/Pisces, to provide a foundation for the work to come. Leo raises the Spirit of the Heart, Jupiter in Virgo seeks the ways to deliver that on a daily basis, to be productive with giving and serving. Moon in Aquarius nurtures bands of friends together in community that those who need it, Chiron in Pisces, will be healed and freed to be blessed by dreams coming true!

Sun/Uranus Grand Fire Trine/Kite pattern with the Galactic Center!
Moon is Midpoint Sextile Uranus and the Galactic Center!

Venus was there first! At the New Moon she trined the Galactic Center! See above Now the Full Moon has moved into position! The Sun is where Venus was, trining the Galactic Center and the Moon is at the Midpoint between The GC and Uranus! She was wearing her tiara, he is wearing his golden crown! Now all those 24/25 degree planets are making a Grand Fire Trine/Kite pattern! That is considered to be lucky and remarkable! Fire can be jubilant; Grand Trines have been know to be lazy, and Leo can be the lazy Lion on the savannah…. When not lazy, Leo can be athletic. How about some summer camping and hiking with friends, somewhere inspiring?! Take your video camera! Try skydiving or hang gliding! Do some creative graphics, write the script yourself! Take on a summer play that shows a better way!

Parallel inconjuncts! [The two purple lines] Parallel and equidistant patterns have their own peculiar potency. Mercury/Jupiter inconjunct Moon and Sun inconjunct Chiron. They truly are parallel because there are factors at each point at 24 and 25 degrees! In this case the parallel is the same aspect, they have the same dynamic. A chance encounter in a glance. An adjustment, course correction likely. Moon is leaving; Mercury makes his connection with Jupiter exactly Aug 22 2:05 AM Pacific. There are lots of details to be considered, decision immanent. In Sun’s inconjunct, he too is leaving. There was an oblique exchange, Sun a little mystified perhaps. Chiron warmed by the visit, but unsure what Sun wanted. Maybe just an observer on the sea…. Now it’s quieter again, but there are things to mull over due to the revelations when Sun put light in the dark.

The two parallel inconjuncts are linked by semi-sextiles. Though a minor aspect I have seen semisextiles be strong! A common one is Sun semisextile Venus bestowing wealth in corporations. Here, Sun is semisextile lucky Jupiter! Both are good natured, athletic, teachers! Jupiter in Virgo takes a health spa vacation, hikes cross country, or takes a leadership seminar or enjoys a writers’ conference! Plays and publishing! Join the Guild! Moon is semisextile Chiron. Moon in Aquarius and Chiron in Pisces both can enjoy alone time whether flying or fishing! If a cause is involved they may find themselves with masses of people, maybe at a concert to raise money. Sometimes it takes a village, an awakening, to do a healing of long held sorrows. Deeper change may require a personal immersion in suffering to open a heart to compassion.

Arrowhead aka Focused Yod! Mercury/Jupiter are the point of the 5 planet configuration. Moon and Uranus are the frame for the standard Yod form, but in addition, Chiron is midpoint between them! Energy is usually thought of its being brought into play by the planet that moves into position, called approaching. In this case that would be Mercury. Though Moon moves faster, it has already contacted and woken all the players, including Mercury, with the feeling of change. Mercury wants to name the change, and in earthy Virgo, to ground it in our thinking, to find practical ways to inaugurate it.

Generally energy goes every direction. All planets are alive always. As another planet has awakened them, they have also given their energy to the passerby. Yod planets ‘behind’ the point planet(s), track the background. Those prongs, the scanner planets, have gathered intelligence, perhaps for aeons, and when triggered by close encounters like this, send it to the planet(s) at the Yod point, which in turn synthesizes it with its own and sends it out potently, three for one style! Mercury and Jupiter at the point, are rulers of opposite signs Gemini and Sagittarius, information, what it means and its purpose. Being together they are working in unity, coordinating the best factors of both. They like a bit of fun on the job, and may juggle things about for a good spitball fight!

That also works in reverse! Mercury and Jupiter are also always scanning, seeking. They snoop out the details in Virgo, organize it to potency better than a vitamin pill or a clean white shirt, and disperse that to the traveling companions trailing behind! Everyone is on the same page! Any one of the points in the triangle may take precedence when needed or if potently connected with your chart!

Aug 19 is Mercury’s first pass of the Jupiter Opposition/Inconjunct point, 24 Virgo, before Mercury retrogrades Aug 30. The Mercury Retrograde Cycle in Virgo started Aug 10. Mercury will cross 24 Virgo again Sep 9, the day Jupiter enters Libra, and October 3. See more These three crossings will keep the Jupiter set’s ideas in mind. The things we planned to do will be reviewed, updated. These are the preparations for the reverse aspects that start in Dec and go through 2017.

Venus, in Virgo now, was just trine Pluto. That can be a wealth aspect or the fears of not having enough. Virgo wants a plan based in actual skills. Pluto in Capricorn may mean hard work to get the training needed. Money to go to school may be in question, but with steady effort, likely doable. Get some help from advisors, seniors, pros in the field you want to get into. You will do better if you do things you love. Virgo and Pluto are up for better health and with right guidance, healing is a good bet!

Mars conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces is no easy combo! It may be slow and cold then hot and dry, over the desert into the sea! Mars hates going slow, being blocked, and Saturn can be like a brick wall, even in Sagittarius! Sag does have its opinions. Sag likes getting to the point and moving forward, but the Neptune fog is too thick to see through to take aim. Who knows where that trail is, dagnabit! Don’t be surprised if you get lost. If you are a hiker or at sea, be sure all your emergency devices are working and check in daily. Be a little careful about falls, weather conditions. Stay hydrated. Be patient with others and their difficulties. Be helpful as you can but take good care of yourself first.

The other notes. Saturn teaches us to conserve and in Sagittarius to focus. Scattered energy delays and confuses. Mars can help when Saturn loses confidence or old age is troubling. Mars says pick up your feet, let’s get a fresh start! Look, I’ll show you! Sagittarius can help us laugh even when we are down, and we all do have our foibles. Neptune helps us soften when Saturn can be rigid from habit. Saturn is the doubter but Neptune in Pisces is the dreamer and dissolves all the old boxes. There are no limits. Saturn does remind us the rent needs to be paid, so no running away or slipping into denial no matter how much fun it is! LOL So let them work for you too. Some old stuff needs to be busted, let to fall, less weight to carry. That new building is better!

It may be challenging, but we are so blessed to live in these healing times. Stay steady in the Light.

Mercury Retrograde Libra Balance Asymmetry

Oct 9 Mercury in LIBRA goes direct, forward! It takes about 4 days to a week to get some momentum. Here are some reminders of what to finesse now through Oct 24, the last lap of the 3 phase pattern. It opens the doors to the success of the Jupiter Mega Trine Pluto Oct 11, and the LIBRA New Moon Gateway the next day, Oct 12 at 5:06 PM Pacific! Powerful times!


Asymmetrical balance is clever. Though poised, maybe stationary, it points a direction.

As above, so below, vertical balance of the underworld with the upper world, is a heaven and earth combination. Being grounded, anchoring the goodness of our Spirit, stability, can give Peace and dependability. Having an open mind allows freedom to uplift our thoughts and connections with companions.

Lateral balance, across the table, so to speak, gives us the advantage of a wide circle to spread the good word, receive intriguing information to extend our range of awareness.

Mercury in Libra loves chatting with one, then another, perusing the array of offerings. Speaking with the same person is never the same after hearing what others have to say and times change under your very feet! As Mercury goes forward, August 28 to Sep 17, he gleans the starting ideas, the wonder of anticipation of what they might become!

Sep 16, the day before Mercury retrogrades and Saturn returns to Sagittarius, Jupiter newly in Virgo opposes Neptune just that once! Jupiter rules Sagittarius, a sign square Mercury’s sign Virgo and opposite Mercury’s other sign Gemini. Mercury funs and fidgets along, often engrossed in the details, charmed by the facts and figures. Jupiter wants to know what it all means, the big picture, and can, at times, be opinionated rather than inquisitive. That has little effect on Mercury, born to patter about, and forgets Jupiter’s admonishments.

Neptune rules Pisces and is in Pisces, the sign opposite Mercury’s sign Virgo. Pisces is the dreamer believer intuitive artist and needs no facts or opinions to do what it does. It opens to the Soul, Spirit. Now, that can be interpreted as confused since they aren’t always understood or able to communicate in a logical way. Often they don’t care if you understand, they simply ARE themselves. The good is letting go, opening to amazing possibilities and sometimes facts aren’t the answer. Compassion may be far more important than a piece of paper….

Jupiter is within 5 degrees of the opposition with Neptune starting Aug 25! We have 23 days prior to the retrograde, and this aspect is concurrent will all the days of Mercury’s phase 1, August 28 to Sep 17, preceding the retrograde! Since Neptune is being activated by expansionary Jupiter, and Neptune runs on whims and magic, dreams and what may be hidden at your fingertips, stay open and really pay attention! What is revealed, and could come true, may be more than you ever expected! See more!

Mercury retrogrades Sep 17 to Oct 9, there is reconsideration of the possibilities. There is a refinement of connections. Some aren’t as they appeared they would be, best to find out right away and move on. Or, it may be better than expected as ideas are added to the potential, the whole greater than the sum of the parts! Check to see projects and partnerships are going as expected. Be a little cautious of new components or associates during the retrograde. Give them time for you to see if they have staying power.

Relationships may be gentile or full of fervent discussion. They may be boring or over the top contentious. Being smart and proving it can be grand or just plain tiring. As a mate, all you wanted was someone to commiserate with, then a little solution finding without the I’m so smart stuff. Generally Libra enjoys equanimity, respect, being considerate. Breakups during a retrograde often reconcile. Don’t move in or out. The location may be unsatisfactory and it be costly to move. If money is no matter, do as you wish. This retrograde is 23 days long. It may save wear and tear to wait. Your thinking about relationships may significantly change.

Mercury in Libra IS smart! Invaluable at seeing both sides. Remarkable solutions can bring parties together, each truly pleased. Contributions to a project may be outstanding. If you can give it the time, after the retrograde dust settles, good chance you will be glad you did.

Business legalities are better checked on but not perhaps changed during this retrograde. If you still want to change a few days after the retrograde, go for it! Important terms of partnerships might come under consideration. Lawsuits may shift as new facts or witnesses surface. Keep turning the stones. Might change attorneys. Artistic endeavors, fine arts, artistic media, may need revisions. Renovations may change course, not come out as intended. Could be better; could be worse. Have all revisions dated and initialed, even changing the color of the paint!

Mercury finishes the course Oct 9 to Oct 24. Libra is what we astrologers call a Cardinal sign, one that likes to get things moving, so don’t expect a sleepy let down as Mercury crosses the same degrees this third time! It’s curious what will happen as a result of previous changes! Libra likes things finely tuned, well turned! Beauty and balance are imperative and quite valuable! If you don’t know the right people, they will introduce you so the outcome is polished and upstanding.

Jupiter starts its once every 12 years trek in Virgo Aug 11. Always about a year in a sign, he finishes Virgo and enters Libra September 9, 2016. Those of you with Jupiter in Virgo will be having your Jupiter Returns! If your Jupiter is 13 to 23 Virgo, transiting Jupiter will cross your natal Jupiter three times in its retrograde cycle! Depending on how your Jupiter is situated with the other factors in your personal chart, and how other transiting factors are activating your chart, it can bring super good luck!

Jupiter makes its first aspect in Virgo Sep 16, opposite Neptune in Pisces one time only. To me it is as if Jupiter is checking in with Neptune to see what dreams could come true! I see it as a spiritual courtesy, an introductory handshake, and Jupiter is on its way to get it done!

In its year through Virgo, Jupiter makes no conjunctions or sextiles. Coming right up Oct 11, it mega trines Pluto! It inconjuncts Uranus. It squares Saturn next spring. It opposes Chiron. Most of those aspects happen 3 times, for a total of 12. The last aspect it makes in Virgo is the last inconjunct with Uranus the Awakener. It leaves the eyes wide open!

Though abundant Jupiter is associated with Sagittarius, a sign square to Virgo, Jupiter does very well in Virgo! Virgo is the Queen of Details and the more the merrier! She wants quality in the organization and happily organizes; Jupiter puts the light on things, gives the big picture, so the details are in perfect placement within the whole! Jupiter puts fun in the work and is happy to travel around to get the exotic materials to spice up the presentation! Jupiter, in fact, is delighted to show your work in all its stages, impressing others with your more than adequate services. It prepares the press, can easily show why yours is the best quality and that it has durability as well as being easy to use, and at the right price!

Jupiter loves planning, and travel, and Virgo guides the budget so you all can get to the most places for the least price! Carefully chosen (by AstroLocality), the places are superb gateways to insights that open further doors. There is a combination of love and learning. Virgos want to serve, and Jupiter wants to enjoy every moment from sunup to sundown and then some! Virgos want to know how it works and Jupiter loves a good story. Putting them together makes people inspired by what you have done! It’s virtual magic!

Teaching patterns are flexible and show people how to learn as well as what to learn. How to think makes everyone a creator! Coaching is automatic! Vital little steps are the precious beginnings of lifelong Paths. Practicing what makes you happy keeps you healthy and wisdom grows.

Health is highlighted! Jupiter may temporarily bring flare ups that require more care, especially if things have been neglected. New ways of healthcare may become available, or you learn a lot more, are more effective, problem solved! Or health may be superb! Virgo specializes in nursing, herbs, vitamins, diet. Schedules are mostly kept. Exercise is specific to the individual. Recovery from illness is steady. Body and mind, attitude, make a difference. A lot of the remedies are from foreign places, Jupiter dancing in excitement reading the labels! Keeping things Virgo clean and bright with lots of fresh breezes, and a lovely Jupiter view clear our mind and keep us extending our vision. Doing favorite things engages our attention to creating and crafting. Grow a mighty organic veggie garden!

All kinds of service industries will have the potential to expand! Bookkeeping, landscaping, pet care, cleaning, housekeeping, caregivers, maintenance, nanny, are a few. If you want more business, ask for it. Improve your skills. Jupiter loves learning; Virgo loves trainings. Ask for higher wages and benefits. Apply for the work you would love the most. Get your own life in order by using professional services. Write a training manual.

Landlords may purchase out of state or foreign properties, or cater to exchange students. Good time to hire apartment managers, give trainings. Tenants might enjoy a lease option to buy! You might offer property management services.

Jupiter is publishing; Virgo is the number one sign of authors! Jupiter will be in Virgo until Sep 9, 2016. Time to put the fingers to the keyboard! Get your material organized. Pay attention to what is popular that you like too! How tos are terrific, and how to do it yourselfs! Or write an accurately detailed historical novel, or a futuristic humorous love story with an uncommonly charming rascally villain and a delightfully naive heroine! Blog, blog, blog! Jupiter will speed your perspective and you will get it done in no time. Plan on publishing sooner than later. Jupiter can be the procrastinator, but if the goal is more delicious than the distraction, it focuses singlemindedly! Let’s do it!

Virgo is the only sign with a feminine symbol, the Virgin. As Goddess Persephone, she symbolizes Purity, the best within us. She is young, fresh, tempting and tempted. As Persephone’s Mother Demeter, she is wizened Crone, Goddess of Harvest and fulfillment, strengthened by life’s experiences. Whether you are protector or child, we thank you for your caring, willingness to work life.

Jupiter will be at your side, at times naughty and playful, at times loud with stories, disrupting with no thought to apologize. But he brings lots of good intentions and just plain joy! He’s robust, handsome and rather fearless, a bit silly, doesn’t always care where he’s going just as long as he’s going anywhere! Like no matter where you go, there you are. He will sweep you along, infuse you with magical herbal scents, take you on a rocket ride, and land properly among the veggie garden faeries!

The possibilities are limitless.
