Taurus, Peace, Strength and Insight

Taurus International Yoga Day

Taurus saves us every day. It’s the sign of body awareness. Ruled by Venus, it seeks grace, beauty that permeates us. Peace comes into our hearts. Wellness makes for radiance and attractiveness. Being centered and grounded bring immediate true simple reactions, sensible solutions. It is humble, admits error, smiles with joy at success of our personal contributions that support all. There is innocence without contrivance or competition. Venus is giving. Taurus stands in patience, kindness.

Such strength is often invisible, a gentle daily action that is relaxing to follow, yet if you stand back, you can see it. There are times when their restraint is their success. It is no sign of weakness to wait until a good time. Physically, Tauruses often have amazing strength and endurance. They can lift extraordinarily heavy objects with no effort at all.

Oh, yes indeed, the same strength for forward motion can also be them standing in front of you with their arms crossed over their chest, immovable as the Oak tree. You can be gentle, rage at them, be clever with your logic to no avail. Maybe they will think on it and get back to you. That might take a short time, a few years, maybe never. You can only admire how they be true to themselves. If they tell you it will be a certain way, you can trust that will be so.

Yoga is known for flexibility, for it’s dedicated breath work, prana, the life force itself. It is known for requiring strength. The United Nations International Yoga Day, recently established in 2015, is June 21, as it is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and shares special significance in many parts of the world. In the US it correlates with Father’s Day, the third Sunday in June. We expect a lot of our men, to be strong all the time, to have patience beyond measure for mere mortals. We want them to protect us, yet be flexible to grow with us as times change. For Yoga Day to be theirs is suitable for our heroes! And they will have better health and a longer life for us to love them!

The most sacred possession you have is your own body ~ it is the instrument of your Soul’s music. That’s Taurus’s job. A good night’s sleep. Maybe a Salutation to the Sun upon waking up, to see that sunrise. Maybe you love the night time and seeing the beautiful stars and moon. Do what feels good in a good way, be peaceful to your own Self. Get exercise that keeps you on an even keel. A nature walk, taking your doggie or a good friend with you. Eat less, go for quality. It pays off in the long run. You are worth it. Sing with that lovely voice you have and take good care of your throat.

Be touched and give hugs. Do and get massages. Feel the water around your legs, the mud squish between your toes. Hold your face to the sun, let the sun warm your back, the wind ruffle your hair. Hear the crinkle of stepping on fresh snow, breathe deep taking in that snappy cold air. Heady! Lift your chin and let the sights tickle your eyes, the wildflowers in the meadow. Throw back your head and laugh because it’s all so amazing! Dance! Let your worries shape shift into another dimension. When you get back to work they shall have reordered themselves into an unexpected harmony, a doable scenario. You settle down to it.

Tauruses know the intrinsic values of things. Some things are lasting, permanent. Others things are transient, maybe flashy, but go their way shortly. Some become boring. Some we turn our backs on upon sight. Nope, not a step skipped or a moment’s hesitation, decision made. They are natural appraisers of land, people. They can feel you in a handshake, hear you in your voice, see the way you carry your body, or how your feet touch that ground, or as you walk through the door. Ask their advice and do listen.

One of the most valuable things to them is their connection with you. They are loyal to the ones they choose. They will be there for you. Make a point of being there for them too. Keep them in your heart. They are dedicated workers, often work with the land and earth in some way. They will make a stronghold for you, the children, their parents. They are sensuous lovers, love holding hands, snuggling in the flannels. Put your arm around their waist or shoulders. In the world, they make foundations to support important causes, may donate important property.

Thank you for being exactly who you are. Blessed be forever and ever.

Taurus 2018 Celestial Highlights!

Before dawn, Lyrid meteors in a dark sky Earth Day!

Lyrid Meteors Radiant Sky & Telescope

Thanks to EarthSky’s Bruce McClure for test, Sky & Telescope for image!

Early risers! April 21 to 23 – start watching late at night, or better yet in the hours before dawn Sunday, EARTH DAY, April 22. The annual Lyrid meteor shower will probably be at its best in the predawn hours, especially as the waxing moon will have set by that time. Assuming you’re in a dark location, you really can’t go wrong getting up in the hours before dawn Sunday and gazing skyward. You might catch some meteors, and you’ll surely see the three morning planets, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars, plus the star Antares! April 23 AM only.

Taurus 2018  Timeline!

Apr

19  Happy Taurus!
22  Lyrids Meteors best in predawn AM
29  Full Pink Moon

May 15!
New Moon 4:48 AM Pacific
Uranus into Taurus! 8:23 Am Pacific
Mars into Aquarius, the Uranian sign! 9:55 PM Pacific
25 Jupiter in Scorpio Trine Neptune in Pisces

By far, the most exciting aspect in Taurus 2018 is it hosts the Uranus sign change from Aries to Taurus at the Taurus NEW MOON! Fitting indeed! New beginnings! Mars is the planet of activation, ignition, leadership, action! Uranus is the planet of evolution, dramatic sweeping change! Things just won’t look the same a year from now!

We are in the last part of Mercury’s retrograde cycle, finishing completely May 3. Jupiter trines Neptune May 25, showing up in Full and New Moon charts now.

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

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

Continuing abiding Aspects: 

Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background! More

Oct 30, Pluto crosses the Golden Ecliptic at Pluto’s South Node, going from North to South! This is a once every 248 years event! See more!

Outer Planet Transits with Taurus 2018 – May 2019!

Taurus Skyline Dr Shenandoah National Park Wildflower Weekend

Skyline Drive, 105 miles. This route stretches through Shenandoah National Park, end-to-end, with the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains and more than 1,300 species of plants. The annual Wildflower Weekend is in early May, featuring special talks and guided nature hikes showcasing local wildlife. Bucket list.

Pluto in Capricorn reached the beginning of the last third of Capricorn Feb 2018 moving from 18 to 23 degrees. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Those of you with chart factors from 0 to 20 degrees, especially in Capricorn, already know Pluto quite personally. Pluto moves about 3 degrees/year, so some of this has been years ago, for others quite fresh. For some it has been a sequence if you have several factors in degrees in a row. Pluto plunders, saves, cures, goes to extremes. Pluto ends relationships abruptly forever or loves and endures great trials and stands by you until the end. Money is made and lost, made again. Powerful charismatic careers have been possible. There have been threats, some deaths, and miraculous survival. Pluto raises the Kundalini, our life force! Powerful!

Taurus is Pluto’s sign Scorpio’s opposite sign. Taurus and Capricorn are both earth signs. Taurus and Pluto both are money signs, Taurus is my money, the money at hand, in your pocket. Scorpio is our money, of couples and corporations, all big monies like insurance, grants, loans, mortgages. A working balance is called for paying what’s owed and some happiness spending money. Taurus is known for common sense, steady attrition. Pluto wants to invest your money, which may be a shrewd move, or scare you to death and you prefer your reserves to possible loss. Pluto may give Taurus the sense they are being manipulated, or used, or with Pluto’s keen observations you may feel like someone finally really understands you. In the face of Pluto’s possible obsessions, stand your ground, stay steady with your considerations. Pluto can be seductive, so give it time. Trust yourself, stay safe. They have their way; you have yours. Way.

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 13 and 18 degrees will be activated with this pure energy! Pisces sees and dreams the vision, has empathy for those who suffer. Sometimes they need rescuing themselves, from being overwhelmed by what they see, from sadness that brings them down. Taurus helps steady that unbridled flow. Neptune symbolizes the flow of the land and seasons with its vast seasonal ocean currents. Taurus’s territory is what’s under his feet. Neptune swirls him to new shores. Neptune softens the deep consideration of Taurus’s ruminations, introduces a less obvious mystical sense into the mix. Though a bit unsettling, it removes that stubborn edge if you surrender. Things go a little faster, energy is released. Barefoot is best.

Uranus covers 28 Aries to 4 Taurus! Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018! Those of you with factors in these last degrees of Aries 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 automatic. In fire sign Aries, it’s the First of everything, truly awakening! Aries is pretty unflappable, but this really shakes your space! Aries loves a challenge and new things. Rarely are they outdone in that dept, but Uranus has a bigger platform. It rules humanity, and although Aries is only one person, they step up because they know the value of key positions that make the difference! Uranus replaces some Aries circuits and the game is bigger yet! Can’t get enough! Young people have been fired up. The Awakener has opened their eyes! What powerful times we are in!

In Aries, the spark may be a bit bright for Taurus. Taurus is the sign of rumination, the Bull and his 4 stomachs, digesting, absorbing, moving information from one dimension to the next, the ability to be still while doing so. There truly is progress, it just isn’t always visible. But conclusions are well thought out. Uranus electrifies, brings ideas ahead of their times, that mortify or magnetize! Intriguing show to say the least. We find ourselves thinking of them, questioning, even if we thought we disagreed. Maybe it is the manner of presentation rather than the ideas themselves. Maybe it’s time to kick up our heels and make a run for it!

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

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, but covers different degrees, 27 Pisces to 4 Aries, the same degrees but different signs than Uranus! These are the last and first of the zodiacal signs! Pisces believes; Aries takes action! Chiron entered Aries April 17 2018! Chiron will activate any factors you have in those degrees. If you have Chiron in those degrees and signs, you will be having your Chiron Return! Wounds and vulnerabilities will be assessed. Updated healing systems will be applied with unbelievable results! Medical teaching will be inspiring, especially about vision and feet while in Pisces, and the head, brain and eyes when in Aries. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business too!

Chiron the Healer is fluid in Pisces, takes only a moment to assess a situation. Pisces 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! Taurus is pretty steady, but Chiron in Pisces is psychic at seeing what ails you. Might be food  – breads, cheese, sweets. Your body may be enormously physically strong, but too much of the wrong foods can trip you up, slow you down, cause tummy and other issues. Chiron looks at how that all can affect your attractiveness, self esteem, financial acuity, relationships – both lovers and children, your ability to take care of elders you love.

On a 51 year cycle, when Chiron goes into Aries for 9 years. through 2027, Taurus may be surprised to find ways to exercise that pleases them! Could be a bike ride, a ground covering walk in the woods! With Chiron in Aries, healing will speed up at an enormous rate! We will process many challenges with at times unproven but successful results. Yes, there will be some rash attempts, but quickly remedied as the leaders push on. In some ways it will be like a renaissance! Aries intends to get right to it and Aries will be happily lead the way with innovative physical therapy, exercise techniques, movement businesses will flourish. Taurus may find himself opening a gym with weights, competitive sports – boxing, martial arts. Chiron will show him new ways to do business, how to have relationships best suited to his Spirit, how to teach on the fly! 9 Years! They will congratulate each other for all the accomplishments – if they have time, LOL!

SATURN builds from 2 to 20 Capricorn. Saturn entered his own sign Capricorn Dec 19, 2017! Saturn will be in Capricorn along with Pluto, conjuncts Pluto once, Jan 12, 2020. In his own sign, many will have more work than anybody should, or you are let go. In the long term that may be a blessing because new work you get suits you far better or you start your own business!


Saturn Returns happen every 28 to 29 years. They can bring you to your knees, or make you bring yourself up to your full height, proud of your achievements! Now, in its own sign, it is truly full height! Those of you with Saturn 2 to 20 Capricorn will be having your Capricorn Saturn Returns now through May 2019! There will be more traditional endeavors. On your first Return – 28, 29, you may find yourself having a lot of responsibility at work, getting married, owning your first home, having a baby! Take good care of yourself. If you are older, on your second Return -58, 59, keep your networks alive. Right housing, parenting, care of precious grandchildren and elders may be challenging new responsibilities. Age and health may become factors, retirement. Sometimes Saturn brings losses, sadness, delays. Advice from seasoned experts may be just what you need. Training and studies are helpful and the knowledge you carry backs up your reputation. Alliances may be strong and mutually supportive. Give yourself credit for what you have done, the talents you have! It’s a time to honor, be honored!

Saturn in Earth sign Capricorn feels the support of fellow Earth sign Taurus. Taurus may be pushed by take-it-on Capricorn, but their intents are harmonious. Taurus wants a safe and comfortable home with good organic food in the kitchen. It knows the value of feeling well and having quality fare. Saturn will make demands and Taurus is willing to step up to the plate. Saturn realizes the value of experience and being steady under fire and is well pleased with Taurus’s contribution. Taurus may find themselves comfortably picking up the pace, especially with Capricorn’s expert time saving expertise. Saturn is grateful for Taurus’s dependability and loyalty. On both sides, be sure wages are fair and equitable for these benefits. 

JUPITER moves from 13 Scorpio to 24 Sagittarius!

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

Jupiter is a fire planet ready to inspire Taurus with its long vision. Taurus is Scorpio’s opposite sign. Taurus prefers their steady routine, so Jupiter needs to place it’s ideas in Taurus territory with a little care. Bring it to them bit by bit so they get used to it. Expect it to take a little extra time as you honor your friend’s needs to think things through. It’s not for anyone to win, but to do what works in your hearts. It can be a relief that you don’t expect everything to happen all at once. Early on, introduce your plan and make those steps realistic to the person at hand. If you try to be clever and trick your Taurus, that might work for awhile, but there is a core person in Taurus that won’t be used or abused. You might end up losing more than you ventured. On the other hand, let’s say it’s a plan you both can get behind, no matter how long it takes. They like your invitation and put heart and hoof into it! They offer steady support, telling key people how it makes fundamental good sense, and right behind them, you can do the fundraising.

Jupiter, Sagittarius’ planet, in Sagittarius, wants to share knowledge! Taurus believes in schooling, the more sensible the better. You may have to take them on a few journeys to see other ways of living, techniques of teaching at other schools. If they are pleased, they may fund the hospital teaching wing, or the church classrooms with daycare provided. If you travel, make your Taurus comfy and bring their favorite foods and blankies. Trains are lovely, the land is soothing to see. Get off the train, out of the car for walk breaks. Jupiter is always wanting to raise standards, are more all encompassing. It’s important to show your Taurus how this personally affects them and their loved ones. Programs for a cleaner planet, better land use, protecting pristine land and resources will go well with them. Ethics are important to Jupiter, the greater truth, higher meaning. Talk philosophy, sustainability. You may be surprised by the exchange. Jupiter helps us stretch, has robust health, generally lives long and prospers! Taurus may be impressed, or just not even notice. So point it out how they can translate that into their own lives, or to someone they love. Sometimes Tauruses are working with such dedication you have to open the door yourself.

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

Oct 28, 1967 Scorpio Julia Roberts

Famous Scorpio Women Part 1

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCwVWpQjJnA&feature=colike 

It starts with Julia Roberts.
7 Fab minutes!
Will she make big news this week?
The Jupiter trine Pluto is happening on her birthday Friday!

Scorpio, Master of Resurrection

Scorpio is the only sign of the zodiac that starts in a double number month, November, 11.  Double numbers double the power, called Master Numbers!  Scorpios have always been feared and revered!  As Libra is the sign of mirrors, Self reflected through others, looking across the table, Scorpio is the sign of merging, ultra sensitivity to others, doubling power when a merger is accepted, accumulating power with each merger, corporate like.  Being a ‘permeable’ water sign, is why they walk around with the stinger ready, a demeanor of don’t mess with me – to keep away the ones that don’t suit at that time.  Or, they don the mysterious unfathomable poker faced mask – you don’t know me, I’m not available, yet, if ever.

The mask, sometimes freely worn as the perfect image of inscrutability, implies a need to protect, a vulnerability that is perhaps not discernible to others.  So there is a certain unpredictable ferocity, a tempestuous wildness in the cauldron, that you need to be careful of until you get to know them better.  And which one of you are we speaking with?  The mask we see or the one behind the mask?!  Both?  Do you know yourself?!  And we all know that, there is more to us than as first or often appears.  One of us is the ‘face,’ the other fermenting.  We all have Scorpio somewhere in our chart,  an 8th  house (Scorpio’s natural part of our chart), and Pluto (Scorpio’s planet) somewhere in our chart.  We all have a minimum of 3 places where we experience Scorpio’s Shadow and Revelation, one way or another.  Since the Mask implies the one you see and the one you don’t know but is there, perhaps this is part of the Great Mystery of their super healing, both having and bestowing.  The mask calls forth what is needed, attracting the Force, while the inner person gathers strength from within, perhaps even resting, while the Mask is lining things up externally.  They have two chances at life, healing from two directions!  Scorpio has always been known to heal faster than other people, miraculously so even when there has been extreme wounding.  And they heal not only the obvious, but the source of the trouble.  Complete healing, through and through, body and Spirit.

Because a partner, an equal, has been attracted, and legalized in Libra, now there is also a very real other, Self, that is there to help when needed.  No doubt they are finely attuned, because Scorpio is highly sensitive, and must pick a partner with higher compatibility for comfortability.  Their reputation is to mate for life.  You can see why.  Only in extreme circumstances do they give up their relationship, and when it’s up, it’s up.  Period.  This deep bond must be boon and bane.  It’s blessed when it is well, and tortured when it isn’t, because it is that close no matter what’s up.  Sigh.  Scorpio is the sign that most often marries one of its own same sign.  So there is less work explaining, there is natural concert, extraordinary potency.  It’s as if another person, or is that two persons, is helping with healing, comforting, encouraging exactly as needed, as if it is another yourself you must live for!  What is that Mayan phrase?   “In Lak’ech” – I am Another Yourself   I’ve thought of that as a Gemini phrase also, Gemini the sign of two.  I think of Gemini and Scorpio as different stages of butterflies.  Geminis flit here and there with nary a care, or so it seems, and Scorpio is the silent invisible Creature in the Chrysalis, deep in dark, soon to bloom.

Lights on, heads up!  Get out your Jupiter thunderbolts and let’s dance!

July 2, Dec 6, and Feb 14, Valentine’s Day 2012, Jupiter in Taurus sextiles Chiron in Pisces! This one will be while Chiron is at 5 Pisces, the first of the three times. July 2 is the last day of the Sun Grand Square, so the build up to this sextile will be challenging, and the challenge will be helped by the teaching healing perspectives the sextile brings. In addition, the Grand Square will be helped by the concurrently building first-time July 7 Jupiter trine Pluto in Capricorn only 5 days later! That will bring phenomenal growth, power, possible wealth, and potential teaching healing, intensify complex situations. I doubt solutions will be simple or immediate, but they will certainly be fascinating! July 7 is the first day of the Venus Grand Square through the 13th, so the follow through needs a bit of finesse. Let love soften the obstacles even, perhaps especially, when the going already seems good. This will be like a little super challenge. Make a point of loving it uP!

Chiron and Pluto are both thought to be healers. Chiron is concerned with teaching, marriage and business, all partnerships of a kind. Teacher/Student, you and your mate, your business/customers – clients/partners.  In Pisces, they need to be magical!  Fiery spirited Jupiter likes teaching too. It travels about, goes to college, gathers a plethora of knowledge, stories, experience, inter cultural sharing, and brings it to the table for exchange. Jupiter is not so often interested in marriage, can be hard to catch. They are off to another adventure. They can be truth tellers, having points of view acquired on the road.  They see you well because they don’t know you, yet are astute observers since their survival depends on instant appraisals. Whether it be about you, your attitude, or the dynamics in your relationship, they likely have at least a part of the truth. True, they can project, seeing through their own lens, but still, what in you called that up in them? Jupiter is not as interested in money as Chiron and Pluto are. They make do as they go. They laugh and love, have fun, are offered shelter for their stories, do an odd job or two here or there, just enough for food maybe. They have expansive ideas, can see further beyond, since they must anticipate the weather, the temp of the locals, where it’s safe or not. Often their suggestions pan out, quite worth your hospitality, let alone the entertainment value!

Pluto is a no fool-around planet.  It seeks the Great Mystery, unabashedly looks at sex, wants to know how money works, and how it is we come to live and die.  It especially doesn’t fool around in Capricorn, that wants the job done toot sweet.  If things are not working, good, you find that out, done with it.  If you are going up the mountain at a steady pace, good, progress.  Cut losses when it makes sense, less whining, more doing.  It’s all ok.  Focus, use good timing, don’t give up.  Seek coaches and mentors right now!  Jupiter will laugh with you all the way to the bank because it has big ideas and is a great direction finder!  It just knows where the good stuff is!

Both these aspects are positive in classical astrology, so invite a teacher, traveler, soothsayer, to your table. Then listen. Learn about healing – of body, mind, Spirit. Plan a clever party, and laugh because you can and it’s even fun when you are on your knees!  Be free and thankful!

Make your appointment for a reading to see which areas of your chart these and other factors are activating!

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.

Venus Transit/Eclipse Chart – 15 Gemini, June 5, 2012!

North American observers can see it the afternoon of June 5, 2012

I’m writing to you well in advance about this event because I think it is important and it precedes the 2012 Mayan calendar event by only a few months.  I am wanting you to hold it in your consciousness, every day be readying yourself for it, put it in your practice.  Be thinking how you can get others ready.  If I could, I would have you see it as sort of like a Soul bath.  You would lay in your lawn chair, facing the Sun, and vision yourself soaking up everything there is to receive, being bathed in loving Light.  You don’t even have to know what that is.  I believe it will come.  Clean your receptors, open your heart.  Those of you who know astrology, study how it will be placed in your chart.  I’m starting to talk about it with every client.

Venus Transits come in pairs spaced eight years apart, but the time between pairs is 122 years, then 105 years. Due to this pattern, only six Venus transits have been seen since the invention of the telescope.  The 2004 Venus Transit was the first of our latest pair. Before that, the most recent transit had been in 1882—which means no living people on Earth had seen a Venus transit when the 2004 event occurred.  Some speculate this rare Transit was one of the reasons the Mayans chose 2012 as their 26,000 year cycle end/start date.

The Venus eclipses have been in the first 15 degrees of Gemini and Sagittarius since 60 AD!  The previous June 8, 2004 Venus Transit was at 17 Gemini, square Jupiter, widely square Moon/Uranus, trine Neptune and opposite Pluto (a loose Mutable Grand Cross involving 7 planets).  Mutable signs call for diversity, adaptability.  The Gemini/Sagittarius axis is mind and meaning, communications near and far, from here to the University.  The Virgo/Pisces axis is service and devotion, working hard and dreamtime magic, healers of body and Soul.

This Venus retrograde conjuncts/eclipses the Sun at 15 degrees airy space-in-the-mind Gemini, both of them square Mars at 16 degrees  get-the-job-done Virgo.  Venus in Gemini is loving communications, appreciations, expressing affection, valuing diversity of thinking.  Square Mars in Virgo calls for that desire being thought about to be put into action, to break through from pleasure to leadership on a daily basis.  Virgo tends the fort, wants all to be healthy, not too much sugar!   Jupiter is at 28 degrees, finishing Taurus about to enter Gemini, just one degree from the Pleiades.  Mercury is at 27 Gemini, in a one degree semi sextile with this Jupiter.  There will be a lot to say, some of it profound, about the goings on, because this 27 Gemini position is powerfully positioned exactly opposite the GALACTIC CENTER, downloading the information to the people!  This is important because the Mayan Calendar turnover at the Sacred Tree, Crossroads of Dec 21, 2012, occurs only 6 degrees from the Galactic Center!  The Moon is conjunct Pluto, sextile Chiron, square Uranus.  This Moon position highlights Pluto; Pluto at this degree becomes part of the Jupiter three planet 8 degree YOD in the Dec 21, 2012 Mayan Calendar turnover!  All will not go as planned, surprises in the offing, some left behind, inevitable deep-rooted change due to fathers, sadly, something to ‘weep’ about, a longed for professional matter at stake.  Some things, though much talked about, must be done alone, yet profoundly affect our mates, or we are affected by them….

Due to the huge size difference, no way can Venus ‘eclipse’ the Sun – we call it a Venus Transit.  In images it is a mere black dot in a sea of yellow fire as it crosses the face of the Sun!  I think of it as a voyage, pilgrimage, a rite of passage, across this magnificent space being.  It is a merger, an immersion, being imbued, saturated, infused, with the brightest Light our Solar System, our neighborhood in the galaxy, has to offer!  And it is lined right up with US!  Whew!  This is the Kleig Light of Heaven, from our Heart of Light, transmitted, telegraphed, filtered, amped, a direct shot!  Do you think flowers in bloom at that time will have more powerful pollen, seeds, essences?!  Not one pore of Venus will be left untouched.  If your love went cold, those with planets touched by this aspect, will be warmed right back up, solar charged!  You may feel you have plenty to give, more than ever!  Venus matters ‘enlightened’ will involve beauty, the arts, money, attractiveness, our values, love, kindness, graciousness, giving.  Perhaps you will be ‘weeping’ for JOY!

In Gemini, the Word, all those matters will be spoken of, listened for, written up!  Start your blog!  Multifaceted ideas will spring forth, diversity rules!  Marketing and advertising will be blessed with connecting people who love what is being sold.  Contracts will be better for all involved.  How we learn, pay attention, will improve, education be more cherished.  Learning a second language will be more valuable not only to improve memory, but to make special connections with people that used to be out of reach.  Touch healing, massage will flourish.  Sports like tennis, running, may make new records!  Very true, it’s not what you say, but how you say it.  Words of praise and appreciation make all the difference.  Love formula – 5 praise to 1 criticism.  What we think – what we focus our attention on, how we think – half full/half empty, matters.  Profoundly.

Venus rules first Taurus, Earth, then Libra, Air.  Taurus has a sensual beauty, rules celebrities and common sense, the monies at hand, the sitting Buddha, Earth, our self esteem.  Libra rules classic beauty, the fine arts, etiquette, Kwan Yin, balance, our adult peer relationships, marriage, how we see our value among our peers, legal proceedings.  We all have both signs in our charts.  Find out where they are in your chart, then read the Venus Transit into those houses, and which house the exact Transit is in, to see what and where you personally are activated.

Those of you with birthdates from the 2nd to the 8th of the month, and/or have planets from 12 to 19 degrees of any sign, will be the most affected by the Venus Transit.  Most air and fire signs will be comfortable with it, may flourish.  Other mutable signs, Virgo and Pisces at square, Sagittarius opposite, may be put off by all the ‘meaningless’ chit chat, may not even hear of it, or be surprised by, perhaps at first annoyed by, new ideas that seemed hidden!  Earth signs want to keep their routine, but there will surely be disruptions.  Water signs, though intrigued, may duck under to see what is happening below the surface and to rest their ears.

A client asked me …will all these changes be for the good?  In some ways the World is already better as people seek new solutions (energy production, government).  Any change proves there CAN be change.  With a lot of old world regimes toppling, there will be chaos and clumsy reform that may take years to settle.  That’s normal.  Change of such magnitude takes time.  Flooding with education and information (Gemini) are imperative.  Giving alternate solutions gives choice (Gemini).  Some of those people have been ‘asleep’ for a long time.  Breaking with tradition and psychological habit is scary.  So change itself, though a relief for some, is part of what can stall the very things it is looking toward.  Encouragement and less poverty, the ability to provide for themselves, create a security base that allow the luxury of a more positive choice.  One of the maxims of natural cycles is it is always darkest before the Light.  Now is the time to stay steady – get us through and beyond the chrysalis of this stage.  Though a chrysalis is a hardened shell, to protect the pupa of the butterfly, it is often seen twitching with life when touched….

This Venus Transit comes before the Dec 21, Winter Solstice, 2012 Mayan calendar end/turnover, giving us LOVE first to cap the final achievements.  We finish the final days before the Calendar ends with more GRACE.  This sets the foundation for a sweeter start of the next cycle, the BLESSINGS to come in the new times!

Let love light the dark way, return to the Light, see the Light.  Merge with, emerge from, the Heart of Light, it’s a free ride!  Reverence to all Beings.  Namaste.  Or as the Mayans say, “In Lak’ech” – I am Another Yourself [Gemini, the Twins].

First, Happy New Moon!  5:29 AM Pacific, 24 degrees Aries    

April 17 to May 11

   Mercury Retrograde in Taurus!  Mind over matter!   Or, Jewels in the meadow!    

Mercury is now   s l o w i n g   way down now for its Retrograde turn ‘backwards,’ and Taurus is known to take its own deliberate, observant, and thoughtful time.     

Time to turn your soil, review some very personal and organic thinking, what touches you!  Your body beautiful, Mama Earth, your money, meaningful peace. There’s good reason to ask, what’s in it for me?  You are an intelligent animal, with quality survival # 1 on the list.  Your good survival affects all of us.  If you aren’t happy, neither is a place in us that wants that happiness for you.  What’s tough for Taurus is the ability to survive discomfort.  They don’t like discomfort, so tackling an uncomfortable problem is not a first choice!  The problem isn’t always easy to make go away nor is it easy to change your settings.  But, may we ask you what you need to make that change or new agreement work for you?  It may be surprisingly simple, even enjoyable!    

I offer you a cute example.  A woman was scared because of her husband’s driving.  She requested he slow down; that was ok with him but he kept forgetting.  They talked some more and decided she would use a code word, Alfred, Alfred the limousine chauffeur!  This delightfully appealed to our driver.  He puffed up, thinking of squiring his lady-love around, her feeling relaxed and comfortable, arriving in fine fashion, being her hero.  They joked that it was Alfred with perks since they are husband and wife!  It was a loving reminder, because he really wanted to protect and take good care of his dear lady.    

Use this Retrograde to get practical answers to some long-standing affairs.  Really stand outside yourself because long-standing things are often so a part of ourselves we don’t even see them, or the extent of their hold on us – they are invisibly in our skin, yet naked for others to see!  Ask a trusted friend to tell you what they hear you complain about or are uncomfortable with.  Pervasive subtle things, that are important, that we may be afraid to deal with, can deplete our energy without our realizing, as we worry and worry, or deny and deny.  Exhausting habits of chronic worrying and denying are hard work and add up.  Be good to yourself.  It starts with you, and you ARE a good person, stronger than you realize.  Get stable, secure.  Being able to do that, to model that process, is a gift to all of us!  And it is attractive!    

The general thinking on Mercury Retrogrades is wait to start new projects because there is so much change of mind during the retrograde it costs more than it is worth.  Be peaceful with waiting, grateful to mull things over.  Use your energy to greater avail as things fall in place when Mercury goes direct – in this case after May 11.  Good things are worth the wait and the work.    

Contact me to find out what areas of your personal chart this is activating, how you can put it to good use for yourself.
