Libra Moon JJ Watt Houston Relief Fund

JJ Watt, Justin James Watt, born March 22, 1989, is an American football defensive end for the Houston Texans of the National Football League (NFL). He is an Aries, but his Moon is in LIBRA! He cares about his people! See his chart (no birthtime)

He established a hurricane relief fund, made the first $100,000 donation on his own, and the money kept pouring in from there. Celebrities of all sorts have been teaming up with big name corporations to keep growing JJ Watts’ fundraiser!

Mr. Charles Butt, CEO and chairman of San Antonio-based H-E-B Grocery Co. donated $5 million! Other big donations include $1,000,000 from Ellen DeGeneres and Walmart. Drake and Miley tossed in an additional $700,000. Tennessee Titans owner Amy Adams Strunk threw another $1,000,000 into the donation jar. Jimmy Fallon announced the show’s $1 million donation to JJWatt‘s hurricane relief fund, and invited a Houston choir to sing “Lean on Me.” It is hoped international donors will step up as well! His fund has raised over $37M! 

JJ said: We must come together and collectively help rebuild the aspects of our community members lives that were damaged or lost. Any donation that you can spare, no matter how large or small, is greatly appreciated. We will come out of this stronger than ever. We are Texans.

As an Aries JJ has become a type of first responder! And he is on the ground delivering the goods. This 28 year old man also has Venus and Mercury in Pisces. He says: Kindness is powerful! And he has just proven it. For you astrologers, him being 28 means he is between his Lunar and Saturn Returns!

Jupiter and Mars in Gemini sextile, an aspect of success and opportunity, his Venus and Sun. He undertook a big move, a generous act. He has connected to people with love in his heart and they have responded.

He is my hero choice for Libra this year. Bless him for his love and leadership.

Libra 2017 – 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Oct 16 2017 Moon Venus Mars False Dawn
Moon, Mars, Venus! October 16 get up before sunrise to view the moon and the dazzling planet Venus in the eastern morning sky. It should be easy to see the waning crescent moon and Venus because these two worlds rank as the second-brightest and third-brightest celestial luminaries to light the sky, after the sun. Some sharp-sighted sky gazers might even see the moon and Venus after sunrise.

To catch the red planet Mars, however, you’ll probably need to be up before dawn, or 90 minutes (or more) before sunrise. Look for Mars beneath the moon and above Venus.

Autumn mornings free of moonlight present a good time of year to try spotting the zodiacal light – or false dawn – in the Northern Hemisphere. Look for this cone of light to jut upward from the eastern horizon some 120 to 80 minutes before sunrise for the next two weeks.

Thank you, EarthSky!

Libra 2017 Timeline!

The Most Significant 2017 Mercury Retrograde Cycle is completely finished and we are moving on at warp speed! Late August, September brought us so many difficulties – natural and political. Libra’s recovery skills are so needed at this time. A smile means so much these days.

October 23 2016 started a whole new round of SIX aspects through Dec 31 that have been the primary aspects of 2017! The first outer planets aspect of 2017, the Valentine’s Day Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, started the 2017 retrograde set of the SIX aspects in reverse order through May 18. The final set of six started July 4. September 23 and 27 Jupiter inconjuncts Chiron and opposes Uranus, Oct 10 Jupiter enters Scorpio! Nov 2 Saturn squares Chiron, and the entire set finishes 11/11 with Saturn trine Uranus! That’s a go ahead!

Jupiter is in its final 19 days of Libra, enters Scorpio Oct 10! Time to secure good footing and balance to make and weather relationships. Make alliances that will hold true through times to come, go to schools and places that will make a difference. Learn how to equalize the elements at hand, trade and exchange wisely. REcover after disasters. Grieve fiercely. REalign, REfresh your life, plan for more of what you always wanted, or have come to want, now that old encumbrances are gone. It’s not a time to start over, but to start completely fresh! Jupiter into Scorpio!

Saturn will be in Sagittarius until Dec 19, 2017, then in its own sign Capricorn for the first time in 28/29 years!

Outer Planet Transit Aspects Libra 2017 – Oct 2018!

Libran synchronicity! Above and Beyond! Double grand jeté! 500

Libran synchronicity! Above and Beyond! Double grand jeté! Leap into your New Year!

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

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 can be challenging to air sign Libra. Libra may try to dodge, but Pluto is the tracker and Capricorn holds them all responsible. Being of later signs than Libra, they may feel superior and want Libra to focus as they wish. But Libra has tricks of his own, being an air sign, needing freedom to roam, may vanish thither and yon among the skirts, hats and cloaks of partners in crime! Pluto, unable to capture this beauty, may give up for now, but be ever watchful for an opening. Working together, in agreement, Pluto helps raise Libra to a more powerful level of connection, deeply protective in the process. Every fiber of Libra’s being may be called upon to adjust and learn new protocols. There could be a breakthrough to a substantial payoff – personally and financially.

Neptune is in its own sign, a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Those of you with chart factors between 11 and 16 degrees will be activated with this pure energy. Pisces is is inconjunct Libra. Could seem to be a wet blanket, rain on Libra’s social event or relationship. Libra is most clever at changing the subject, but Neptune sees through the shield easily. When in tune, Neptune has utmost compassion and Libra feels safe to tell all. Perhaps it has been waiting a long time to be told. Old layers removed, Libra is free to see the potential of dreams. Neptune is perceptive and has insights on how to make them come true. Listen with your Soul. We are rebalancing to a higher level. It’s new, but you are a quick study!

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! it’s opposite Libra, right where you can see it. Those of you with factors at 24 to 29 Libra will find your world spinning! You don’t know whether to jump into the fire or run for your life, LOL! But heck, it’s intriguing and you love seeing exotic new things, people and places! You get intrigued by the cause and find there are potent things you can do right at your fingertips! New allies, new channels, new vantage points. You can still go home, but you won’t be quite the same person!

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, askew, a bit out of control. Libra the dancer doesn’t always mind being off track, in discovery of new blends! Both Taurus and Libra share Venus as their ruler. Taurus grows the flowers, Libra places them in the landscape or in a knock out display! Deliberate asymmetry, dissonance, different types of balances, may become a passion. You may be longing for time alone, bored with relationships you are outgrowing. Or you feel lonely as companions go other places. You could find yourself seeking more exotic delightful connections you would never have considered before! Be careful the rogue doesn’t live on your money!

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

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. 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! They are inconjunct Libra. Shifts in direction, adjustments, a more fluid approach, a compassionate stance is called for. You may be curious, but there is also need to be more deeply sensitive to feelings and different needs of others than usual. There is a need to engage as well as observe. Blythe beauty and charm alone are not enough. If one approach doesn’t work, try another angle.

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 opposite Libra, calling you to action. Libra is pure genius at facing, mirroring their surroundings! They instantly see what’s needed. They will place people in exactly the right places at the right time for effective results! Aries is split second fast and Libra easily keeps up! Aries says give up a bit of the social courtship, just get it done, now! And Libra finds that to be true at times, so picks the best team to do it! They can get a LOT done together!


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

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

When Saturn goes into his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing when you get work that suits you better or you start your own business!

In Capricorn, Saturn squares Libra. Not as much fun. Capricorn wants to work. Better put Libra to work in the Human Resources dept. or setting up social events, the art and graphics dept. or legal and political venues. That doesn’t seem like so much work to them. But don’t tire them out with a bleak slave labor approach. They need light, air, smiles and appreciation to flourish and do their best work. No abuse or you may find yourself on the wrong side of a lawsuit! Sometimes less hours are better, or two different jobs in the same company to keep their interest. Making peace and beauty is their business. Don’t bore them keeping them in a box. Ask their opinions and time to time let them try it out. You may be very pleased with the result. Librans, give an honest measure. Don’t go running off sniffling with your knickers in a twist at the slightest provocation! Stay steady when you are needed. Get a partner to help if possible.

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


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

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire and Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Jupiter in Libra can be well traveled and curious wherever it goes, giving suggestions and making comparisons right and left. Jupiter is considered a lucky planet, abundance, optimism! For many this has been Libran’s lucky year! Sometimes Jupiter lifts you up, you can see plentiful options. New relationships have made a difference. There are times Jupiter is overwhelming and gives you the wander bug when you should really be staying with it. Other times traveling is the best time that ever happened to you! Education is a joy, great instructors. Publish! Truth can be what you have longed for, or you are outed for whatever and it is a disaster, at least at first, but can have miserable consequences too. Planning and redirecting your energy can save the day. Making connections that uplift you can take you places that are even better than you always wished for! Last chances now through Oct 10 to get things in place, secure your foundation relationships.

Jupiter in Scorpio! Libra wants beauty and social relationship. Scorpio wants the relationship to heal you and increase your financial potential. Libran charm is lovely; 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 and answers to lifesaving questions. Libra may act as liaison. Old remedies the midwives knew may come back into use. Justice may come for those who have suffered extreme abuse – land grabs, sexual abuse, calculated theft, slavery, murdering children and animals. Librans will be activated in courts. They will publish art and novels that exposes atrocity. They will unite in factions for prevention, education, exposé and social justice. Journals will reveal darkness. It may be uncomfortable for many Librans, but the ones who have Mercury or Venus in Scorpio will understand and stand up. Be safe. Let Scorpios protect you.

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

Here’s the Outer Planet Sign Changes Timetable:

Librans are Aces at Recovery!

Libra Asymmetrical Balance Stones Recovery

snailz4dreams writes at Samatta Balance saying: “Balance is not about two opposite forces, as one may think. 

Light and dark, day and night.. these are not opposites. They are as much each other as they are not. Life has a way of finding balance, of being both and being neither. What we forget is that there is never good without bad, nor bad without good. We don’t always see the good we do, and we don’t always see the bad we do either. Some seek only the dark, while others seek only the light. For those that need to speak, there are those that will listen, without judgement and with open hearts.” And all things in balance are not necessarily ‘equal.’

Libra is a living sign, always in a state of balancING! If they fall to one side, they recover and get steady again or maybe not! Librans are often smart and beautiful, models, and we expect so much of them because of that, yet they are learning, have growing pains and feelings, ups and downs just like all of us do.

For them they have learned to be nimble, walk the line/tightrope, use a balancing staff. They glide between us and out of tight situations with intent to hurt no one. They see the darkside and know why they aren’t going there or don’t stay long. They dart out of the jaws of captivity. As they go along their life, they introduce us, one to the other, to strengthen our networks. Often their judgement is uncanny – they can be liaisons, astute negotiators, matchmakers, make art that makes us rethink our relationship with our Souls! As one side dips down they get a look at the lowlands, when it rises again they see the process and observe the potential, the peaks! They know it is a natural cycle, and show us how to flow with it too!

That doesn’t mean Librans don’t fight. They are good at it! Some are lawyers, some are peacekeeper police. Many martial arts require superb balance and instantaneous adjustments. Those same skills can save lives and apply to the very breath we take, how much mental attention we apply here or there. Wisdom is a living skill we learn as we go.

Relationships are important to them. Sometimes they are the prosecutor saving us. Sometimes they are the defender taking on great odds in the name of justice! In personal situations, as children, they often grow up helping keep the family peace. In couple relationships they can be the one who concedes. Just because they can do that doesn’t mean they agree, nor does it mean they should. People pleasing has consequences. Be extra intuitive to be sure your Libra is truly happy. Don’t just take their word for it. Really listen and check it out for proof.

On the other hand, be very clear with your Libra. They sense the slightest discrepancies in your demeanor no matter how well hidden you think you have kept your secret. That’s why they are good on their feet in courtrooms. Not good to lie to them. They may not bring it up that day or ever. They may just vanish out of your life one day thinking there are differences that can’t be mended. Trust needs to be on both sides.

Librans are always making beauty. Besides fine art, they grow flowers, design extraordinary gardens, do exceptional commercial displays and interior decor, wear fine clothes and jewelry when possible, are clean and often indulge in amazing scents and fine wines. They strive for fairness and impeccable manners. They are superlative social directors and planners, attending every detail – they are the ones that make your marriage a memorable state occasion! In gratitude, give your love some flowers. If your dear one is a gardener, give them to them in a pot so they can grow more!

Different cultures, ages, faiths, are fascinating! They love anthropology and cultural museums. They see the best in all situations and can coordinate exchanges that make a world of difference literally! Rather than fighting, they look for values each party has to offer and all could prosper from! Librans thrive in international situations! And they can build huge exotic import/export businesses.

Libra Tug of War pulling for the best!

Remember, it may be a tug of war, but they are always fighting the good fight, pulling for the best! Healthy teamwork really makes a difference.

Quick on their feet, they mend many relationships, gather the troops, are so graceful you hardly realize they are working! You feel charmed and grateful when all is said and done. Be sure to acknowledge their wonderful skills and accomplishments. Give them hugs for the tough moments when they saved the day! They are Aces at Recovery!

Recovery comes in many forms. Health, mental health, business, political, social, humanitarian, environmental. Right now,with fires, floods and quakes all at once, we need you more than ever and thank you with all our hearts.

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.

Magical Saturn photo by Hubble space telescope!

Beautiful Saturn is dancing the tightrope at 29 degrees Libra all during Aquarius, still in the same or within one degree trine with Neptune in Aquarius, then in out of sign trine when Neptune enters Pisces!  Though it is VERY close, it never makes the exact aspect because Saturn is slowing to retrograde Feb 7, and Neptune goes on into Pisces Feb 3, leaving Saturn behind.  The exact trine won’t be made until Saturn enters Scorpio in October.

The 29th degree is considered a degree of maturity, finishing, the end, celebration!  It sets the limit, finalizes, makes the foundation for accomplishments in the following sign, in this case, Libra for Scorpio.  Saturn is necessities, work/career, Father, boundaries, Time, priorities, stone, high mountains!  Libra and Scorpio are both signs of relationship – Libra is fair balance, marriage, partnerships of all kinds.  Scorpio is intimacy, sharing of wealths, contributions, corporations.  Relationships need to be well established, respectful, in Libra, before the deeper delvings in Scorpio that require utmost trust.  At this time, Saturn gives Scorpio a good sniff, but stays in Libra (retrogrades), to take care of unfinished business, to further balance responsibilities to each other, oneself, to further consider how to negotiate respectfully, putting yourself in the other person’s place, to realize your part in things.  Saturn shows us how some things are the way they are, don’t waste time trying to change what will not change now, intelligently wait.  And it shows us how to be thankful for small changes that can multiply when kindly and steadily attended.

While Saturn is harmoniously trine Neptune still in Aquarius, additionally, friends, professional associations, community service organizations, are being assessed.  It considers individual contribution, and the contribution to the whole.  It assesses who to work with, for how much, how long, doing what.  If change is in the offing, how to do it, to let go of fears, accept what must be left behind to step to the next level, pay attention to reputable referrals, get a toehold in a new arena.  Do it honor.  Make a mature, secure, and worthy foundation for important things to come.  Neptune is the inspiring dream; Saturn is real, works the connections, gets the job done.

MOON Void of Course ALL DAY daytime 10 times in Cancer!  June 22, 27 and July 1, 3, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 17.  VC is thought of in two main ways.  Nothing will come of it; there is nothing to stop it.  Whichever school you are of, be wise about making appointments, starting projects, on those days.  For more on Void of Course, see the last item on the page at this link.

July 1 Solar Eclipse New Moon at 9 Cancer finishes our sequence of 3 eclipses in a row. Feeling what you are saying, doing, is vital. Your feelings have SUCH potency.  Your effect on others runs a course from one person to the next.  Seeing how much your feelings affect those around you may make you choose to divert your attention to more positive feelings.  Feelings can consume your attention so you don’t think or see anything else, holding you from seeing out in front of you, and moving forward. Emotions have enormous effect on your vitality and health.  Emotions tell you what’s up, and how important it is!  Take good care of yourself, like what you feed yourself.  Good organic food creates your chemical balance, makes a difference.

One of the true Cancer gifts is loving people unconditionally.  We see it with Mom’s and their children.  It’s a true power – they can lift that car right off their kid!  Practice that power of love yourself, to yourself, to others, adults.  Often what seems irrational about them, scares us, but when we sit with them for a time, walk in their shoes, they become simple and understandable, maybe a lot like us!  Even if not, all beings deserve love and care?  If the Soul is of many life times duration, as some of us speculate, fostering a self worthiness can go a long way in healing.  It gives them the message they are worth it.

Happy Eclipse!

Saturn turned direct, forward, June 12, but is still holding a one degree orb, range, to his 10 degree Libra station (appears to be stationary, still, in the sky) until July 8.  As said last month, ‘those of you with planets at 8 through 12 degrees will feel the need to enforce or question the rules, make or break commitments, let go or take responsibility, respond to age issues, make career choices, engage in father/ing matters, build for a stable future.  Being overwhelmed burdens the Soul; timing that fits the deed and your needs and your Spirit makes all the difference.  Focus and do your best.  Make yourself proud!  Now’s the time to turn around, take it forward!’

Jupiter is now well founded in Taurus, up to 3 degrees, working its way to the Retrograde station at 10 degrees!  Familiar degree?!  It will be stationary at 10 degrees from Aug 15 to Sep 14.  To me this is significant because this is the other sign VENUS rules.  Libra, and Taurus.  It will hold this 150 degrees, quincunx, inconjunct, away from the 10 degree Libra position that Saturn is now holding.  Taurus and Libra both have to do with love and beauty.  Taurus is of money and worldly goods, a lovely body to sculpt, earth herself.  Libra is of marriage love, grace, and etiquette, fine arts, exquisite landscapes.  Saturn in Libra has called us to build this Libran beauty into our lives, each our own way, to take time for grace, allow a patina of maturity, respect.  Jupiter in Taurus invites a recognition and acceptance of organic, intrinsic being, what is, basic values.  It senses a solid step in the ‘right’ direction.  It sees a broader beauty that comes from simple peace.  Yoga.  As Swami Krishnananda says, it is ‘a perceptional change, and not merely an act of doing something with your body.’

In this case, in the sequence of time, Libra has been first, Taurus will follow.  That’s in reverse of zodiacal order.  So humans and their personal balance, and their balance among our peers comes first.  How we treat our self, each other.  If we don’t treat ourselves well and have bank of grace with some to spare, giveaway, how will we be magnetic and attract beauty, with the financial poise that brings peace?  Sometimes a perfect storm clears the path; other times, a gentle fearless course, a smile at your enemy, dispels the battle, quells the defenses.  Through the lovingness of another (Libra), a courtship of Spirit, we are blessed with seeing, feeling, we are so very ok to BE our Self, just the way we are (Taurus).  Divine.

Fascinating combination, Jupiter in Taurus.  In Taurus Jupiter is grounded, toned down, less needing to wander off, pleased with where it has landed, becomes more the observer, offers options for expansion.  Taurus is jazzed up with Jupiter on its turf, gets curious with the ‘what ifs,’ is a wee bit more motivated, less its predictable self, dabbles in foreign affairs.  The rolling stone gathers no moss.

Sai Baba – Astrological Birth and Death Charts

Scorpio - Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Easter.  Today, that day of Resurrection, is the day the Great Master, Sri Sathya Sai Baba, chose to leave his earthly body.  What a message.  We are born again.

Here is the chart of his birth.  What is most unique is that he never left India to bring his message to the world.  At 84, he was revered by millions worldwide, with ashrams in over 126 countries.  Devotees included high-placed politicians, movie stars, world-class athletes and industrialists.  Over my lifetime, I have had friends who were with him when he performed some of his miracles.  I am a believer, and am sad at his passing, blessed that he lived, for my friends’ miracles were real to me and changed me too.

Sai Baba – Scorpio Sun & Ascendant, Moon Cancer

Saturn was next to his Sun in Scorpio when he was born, made him like a Capricorn as well as a Scorpio.  One of Saturn/Capricorn, abilities is apporting – the ability to materialize things out of thin air.  My friends saw him make roses appear in his hands, and the sacred ritual ash, Vibuthi, for their foreheads.  With Saturn at Baba’s Ascendant and Sun, he was a hard worker, and likely life was not always easy.  He never married or had children.  They say we teach what we need to learn.  Baba’s Venus and Mercury were in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Aquarius, a love of spiritual teaching and people of all places.  His Mars was in Taurus, an enduring warrior devoted to his purpose, a founder.  His Moon in Cancer gave him a love of home, so he built an ashram, a spiritual home for people to come live and learn with him.  Crowning his chart is Neptune in Leo, at 26 degrees in a positive exact trine with wth Galactic Center, 26 Sagittarius!  Spirituality fit for a king, major fame, though most Scorpios like to operate from behind the scenes.  Another thing that brought this man forward was that four of his planets, Saturn, Sun, Venus and Mercury were all in his first house, the Aries house, making him sacrifice his privacy for leadership!  Or you could say he led from behind since his medium was meditation and spirituality, both invisible!

Baba’s Death Chart, Easter April 24, 2011, Puttaparthy, India at 7.40 AM

It is thought by many that the sign you die in is the one you reincarnate in!  So here he went with Sun and Ascendant in Taurus, the opposite sign of his Sun and Ascendant he had this life, Scorpio!  Pluto and Moon are in Capricorn, the opposite sign they were in this life, Cancer!  In both instances, he has gone the maximum distance, reach, across the zodiac!  He leaves us during a 5 planet Aries Stellium (cluster of 3 or more planets in the same sign), a champion even in death.  The Ascendant of his death chart is 29 degrees Taurus, a classic degree in horary astrology of something to weep about, the degree of the 7 Sisters, the Pleiades.  Indeed.


Death Chart around Birth Chart 

Difficult Aspects
Pluto in Capricorn at his natal South Node – controversy over past leadership/authority/integrity
Neptune/Chiron Pisces square natal Venus/Mercury Sagittarius – unsurety over management of the Satya Sai Central Trust, estimated to be worth over $8.9 billion, or much more, and issues of fake miracles.  No successor has been named to run the trust.  Venus and Mercury are money and naming.  Neptune and Chiron are spiritual business, the unknowable, miracles.
Saturn in Libra and Mercury/Mars/Jupiter in Aries forming a T square natal North Node, Moon, Pluto in Cancer – controversy over sexual abuse of devotees, fake miracles, the June 1993 killings in his bedroom.  Oops.  Saturn can be rather merciless, wants an accounting.  Mercury/Mars/Jupiter search for the truth.  Moon is bedrooms/at home, Pluto is vast sums of $, death, mysteries.

Positive Aspects
Neptune/Chiron Pisces sextile natal Mars in Taurus
– hopefully things will be worked out with the Trust leadership and the good works will continue
Uranus/Venus in Aries trine natal Venus/Mercury in Sagittarius – world love and leadership will network to carry on teaching the message, helping to focus for the June 5, 2012 Venus Transit and Mayan Crossroads/Sacred Tree Dec 21, 2012
Jupiter in Aries sextile natal Jupiter in Aquarius – Jupiter rules fame, orthodox religion, state ceremonies, funeral rituals, truth, teaching, expansion.  Perhaps much more will come to light about Baba’s life in the next few years.  However that may shake out, he brought millions of people planet wide to spiritual insights and practice.  Millions of people in conscious practice are needed to keep the balance in a frightened world.  They will carry the power of the tipping point to a better life.

Steady in the Light and your Practice.  In Love, Cerena

Mar 28   Jupiter Opposite Saturn  This is it’s 3rd and last one!  Not only is it the last of the three, but the very last of all the 2009, 2010 difficult aspects that brought our economy down.  Hooray and hallelujah!  And in the grand scale of difficult aspects, this is not considered high on the list.

Jupiter is the big planet with the Great Red Spot, to me the Third Eye, the Seer – see-er, who looks to the future, far in the distance.  It can afford to be joyful because it knows this too will pass, and if it really is unhappy, can educate people to a different way to improve its chances, or travel on where its offerings will be appreciated, often sharing stories along the way.  In Aries, it thunders along, seven-league boots like never before!

Very different from the usually polite Libra Saturn animal who commits and won’t leave, ever.  It said it would do it, and it will.  Saturn is serious about making it work right here, pruning where needed, tucking in, using what’s at hand.  It sets priorities, and knocks them off the list with great focus, not really minding the hard work.  Great endurance and fortitude, righting and restoring balances, both in personal relationships and community wide.  But don’t be too soft.  Saturn will use its scythe, whether a look, a few to-the-point words, or simply turning its back on you.  You know you need to step up to the plate for real.  It commands respect.

Combining those strategies, or calling on them as you can, is a great skill, that makes a lot of sense, kinda the know ‘when to hold, when to fold’ principle.  Are you running away, or have you over stayed your welcome?  Is the work burdensome with little return, do you need to let go, find a better fit?  Good.  Work the balance, reach out to opposites to improve your style, extend your capacity, enjoy life more.      

Mercury - Fleet Feet, Nimble Mind!

March 30 to April 23, Mercury Retrograde, 24 to 12 Degrees Aries!  In firey spirited Aries it is truly fleet of feet, nimble of mind!  The messenger of the Gods can’t wait this time! It tries out whatever presents itself in the moment, not a moment to lose!  But, as you can, be especially careful not to have your car serviced during retrograde – do it well beforehand or after.  Anticipate any mechanical or motion device needs.  Not a time to buy a car, take up a new sport or dance, make art related to fire, start a new business, print a lot of cards.  If you must do an installation or a seminar, expect delays and a ton of questions, a lot of follow up.  New friendships may fizzle, the new place may lose its sparkle.  As with all Mercury retrograde purchases, get exchangeable or returnable items, large warranties; don’t do anything you can’t afford to make a mistake about.  Not a good time to repaint that wild new color.  After the retrograde, and the Aries stellium is over, you will wonder what got into you!  But, hey, it was spiffy while it lasted!  Who would have ever thought you would do that?!  Maybe it was worth it for that alone!  Next!
