Full Taurus/Scorpio Frosty Moon!
Saturn square Chiron, trine Uranus background!

Friday Nov 3 at 10:23 PM Pacific, 11 Taurus/Scorpio 59!

Scorpio Full Frosty Moon Taurus-Scorpio

It may be frosty, but Scorpios can comfortably accommodate radical temperature changes!

Saturn square Chiron leads up to the Full Moon, exact Nov 2 the day before the Full Moon! For some that will not be a cheerful aspect, perhaps losses and lonely. Depending on how it activates your chart, it will present challenges, but easily dealt with. Others won’t notice it at all. But old Saturn hammers the forces into place anyway, if he can get them in his grip. The Full Moon spreads the pages apart, Moon opposite Sun, reveals the valuable inner nut, opens the Gateway!  See more

Also yet to come is the companion aspect Saturn trine Uranus Nov 11, 11-11! Saturn square Chiron in Pisces comes first, a possible health challenge, a matter of addictions, old guilt, fears, depression. Depending on how it engages your chart, if it does, you may find yourself on your knees. This is followed by the trine with Uranus, support of friends and community, and the freedom to change. It requires hard work to make the change, but the effort pays off. There may not be fireworks, but a worthy mission will be completed. No shame or blame. This is a life changing passage.

These two aspects are particularly significant after all the recent natural disasters – fires, floods, quakes. Saturn square Chiron has forced us to let go of old wounds, released us from old sacrifices and negligence, acting alone. New communities are being formed, timely new businesses with real bones are being born. Hard times have shown us what really matters, how to help and be helped. We are connecting with one another, really connecting, heart to heart. It is a perfect time to build with sustainability in mind, upgrading to new and better possibilities for sweeter reasons. It’s a time of re-creation. Saturn the Builder, Father Time, is in harmony, trine, with genius Uranus, the planet of chaos, change, community, R/Evolution. Saturn, a historical genius, now in Sagittarius becomes a practical Futurist with the background to make it so!

Venus at 25 Libra, just invited Saturn to an awards gathering, and she is opposing Uranus in Aries asking him to mind his manners, stop by for just a few minutes. She knows how restless and caged he can feel. She’s sweet in her own sign, and he’s taken with her grace and that she made the effort to include him though at times he can be bristly. She was intrigued by him and would like to see him again, but she’s likely right, it’s only a brief encounter. He and Saturn or into some timely necessary work. They are cleaning up messes and forging a better future. Maybe later on…or maybe they engage her to soothe the constituents, balance the forces, add her touch of beauty.

In the last 3 to 4 days, Mercury in Scorpio has just mingled with the whole group, pivotal! He is leaving midpoint Venus and Saturn, aided their connection by knowing secrets of each. He trined Chiron, hoping to bestow healing tips, cleaver teaching that leaves them wanting more! Having been inconjunct, askew Uranus, he disguised his ideas to make Uranus in Aries thought they were his own. Worthy ambushes. Uranus retains his leadership and happiness. Mercury is the mental power battery, quick to see the crevices in the minds of his fellows. He snatches the inklings, spreads the Word, plies his craft well!

Moon is quickly leaving Mars, Sun is faster and leaving Mars. Mars is leaving semisextile Jupiter. What’s done has been done. Things are moving on without him. Sun is leaving Jupiter too.

Those of you with factors in your charts close to 11 degrees will be directly linked to the Full Moon and Neptune. The Moon in Taurus, and Sun in Scorpio favorably connect with Neptune of Dreams. Taurus is a steady worker, determined every single day. It may seem small gains at first, but the next thing you know the whole field is plowed. Or the landscaping has grown and looks beautiful. Ironically, ashes of fires are like a fertilizer. Neptune is a Guide, and Angel, a sweet Soul that takes your hand when you get scared and stubborn. Neptune makes music that can call you, haunt you, make you dance like Kokopelli or Zorba the Greek! Neptune knows when to be gentle or give you the boot in the backside, knowing you will be ok. Nothing like being in fresh space on new ground!

Sun in Scorpio lights the way through the darkest times, even at night when the Sun isn’t shining, through the caves of unlighted consciousness, inner space, our tubular psychology! We step out of denial, fascinated by the possibilities after all! Scorpio celebrates the darker times of life, Halloween, honoring at the Day of the Dead, our rip roaring stupendously impressive ancestors who survived in dangerous times! We have a residual power through the Matriarchy and Patriarchy, past lives. Sensitive and psychic Neptune reveals hidden strengths. Spiritual mentors may become apparent, loosening our perception to understand more of our gifts. A good Sensei teaches you your unique prowess, healing talents, tunes your wholeness, connects you with your true center, honors the connections with all.

Sun will sextile Pluto, Scorpio’s planet Nov 9 in the wee hours of the morning Pacific time, so essentially Nov 8 is it’s most active day. That’s two/three days before Saturn trine Uranus Nov 11! So the Sun of this Full Moon also links the two Saturn aspects that are the background of this Full Moon. Outer planet aspects are important because they are more long term. Their matters take time to develop, be instilled, be consciously used. Pluto, as is Scorpio, is a force to be reckoned with. The Sun in Scorpio knows how to deal with Pluto. Pluto may be a bit old fashioned in Capricorn, but there are new potentials to be reaped. There are good and powerful connections to be made. The Sun is the Heart of Light and shows the way.

“As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.” – Bill Gates, Oct. 28 – Scorpio Sun, Venus, Saturn; Jupiter conjunct Pluto

New Moon!  Opposite Star Algol, leaving trine Procyon!!
Four Planets, Stellium in Scorpio!
Saturn at Galactic Center, leaving square Chiron, trine Uranus!
Jupiter trine Neptune….

Saturday November 18, at 3:42 AM Pacific, 26 Scorpio 19!

New Moon Crescent Goddess Eos Dawn Mask Cyndy Salisbury

In honor of Halloween, Cyndy Salisbury’s mask of Eos, dawn, emerges out of the dark of Night. Resurrection, Rebirth, Reawakening, Rejuvenation. About Cyndy and mask making

Our Scorpio New Moon is truly Celestial! It connects with two Stars and the Galactic Center!

The Galactic Center, GC, is a place of huge significance. It ties us with Souls or Beings beyond our wildest imaginings! We may dream or have insights, but more likely impressions that we don’t entirely understand yet feel are important, compelled by, point a direction. We are inclined to be more inclusive, to let go of the daily fraught, raise our sights higher. We see what surrounds us with greater comprehension.

Saturn is now at the GC at 26 Sagittarius, as it was 28, 29 years ago! Saturn will be at, conjunct the 26th degree Nov 15 to 24. Saturn in Sagittarius calls us to take charge of our future. Work it. Be present, accept the mission. Be respectful of all Paths. It started Feb 16 at 26 Sag 0, moved into 27 degrees and ‘stationed’ there – was direct/moving forward, then April 5 retrograded/turned back. It went back to 26/0 degrees May 25, right after the the second Saturn trine Uranus! That was three months that we were deeply infused. Now we see what needs doing, it’s time. Recent floods, fires and quakes have called for survival, generosity and recovery. I won’t say restoration, because it’s time to do better. We want to build a fresh future. Let go, move forward clean and clear.

We are now living the legacy of the Nov 2 Saturn square Chiron, the challenges of stabilizing in the aftermath of fires, floods and quakes. Even without drastic events, it may disrupt your business or your love life. It may remind us of old sorrows, addictions, grief for lost loved ones. Our health could suffer. The change we hope for may seem lost or circumstances insurmountable. Chiron is in Pisces can have a wicked imagination! Thank goodness Saturn is realistic and practical. In Sagittarius he is so looking out for a more positive future and actively working for it! Day by day, step by step. Do what you can, you get points for just being able to wait this one out! More better though, if you take measures, no matter how small. You can do it!

We are also in the building for change Nov 11 Saturn trine Uranus. We will strive for greater sustainability, community efficiency, more meaningful life work, working together. Saturn collects the scatterings of ideas of Uranus in Aries, unites them in purpose! Responsible networks are formed, some with unique specialties. These networks may be bulwarks to stay tides of falling back in time, yet see values in new ideas and put them to work.

Correspondingly, the New Moon is at the same degree as Saturn, a sign apart! In turn, then, the New Moon was just trine Chiron and inconjunct Uranus! Semisextile Saturn gives it a serious sense of the need to get things done, maneuver behind the scenes to back Saturn’s play. The trine to Chiron in Pisces increases knowing the sensitivity and delicacy some things will require. Many are suffering losses of everything they had and loved ones as well. Others are exultantly freed of what was a suffocating daily bondage. Some are suicidal, others are able to step up to the plate. It’s a fine choice whether to be gentle for a long time, or to heartfully bully them to stand up, lift their chin and get on with it. Martyr time is over.

Inconjunct with Uranus means this is a time to start incorporating change into your life. Uranus is the planet of evolution, mightier than any sword or pen! The part of you that is unique is called to contribute. It’s exhilarating when you step into this new level, zone! For a long time you were learning skills that now will be used to their fullest capacity in collaboration with likeminded Souls for the greater good of all! Uranus in Aries can be solo, or the work can be done by a tribe of leaders, community leaders worldwide making amazing strides! Deliberately join forces! Make connection after connection to strengthen the light grid of Humanity!

This New Moon has super Scorpio flavor with FOUR planets, a stellium in Scorpio the 16th – 18th! The New Moon is a potent time all of its own, with Moon joining Sun, being infused with intense Scorpio energy, energized by the special healing Light of Scorpio. Mother Moon is intuitive in her own right and more so in Scorpio. She let’s no pain or sorrow not be comforted by her understanding. You can tell her your secrets and as any good midwife, she guards what you share.

Jupiter gives a huge boost to Scorpio energy! He amplifies relationships, shares through hardships, celebrates and multiplies financial successes in rapid progression. Healing happens faster than ever before, and Scorpios have amazing healing powers, both of self and in behalf of others! Clearing psychological messes, plumbing matters both internal and in housing, financial accounting is tracked and justified, security for breakins and thefts is seriously installed. Wills are made, elder needs are anticipated and dealt with in generous ways. Just be careful on that motorcycle!

Jupiter’s next stop is trine Neptune in his own sign Pisces Dec 2! That will be the first aspect that starts the 2018 set! From Scorpio of the Underworld, to Neptune the ultimate dreamer, gifted visionary, Jupiter will see underlying causes, apply the greatest healing possible. Jupiter in Scorpio can be a phenomenal fundraiser for causes, concerts, spas, foundations for learning, sponsoring research. Beliefs may be in exceptional harmony.

Venus in Scorpio is either spoiled truly rotten, learning skills neglected as bills are paid for you, or, you are blessed with beauty beyond measure, inborn charisma that brings champion contenders to you, a keen awareness of the intent of others, and an astute judgment of how worthy and long lasting an investment may be. She will sextile Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, very early the 21st. Have your ideas in mind and make your request the 20th. Good time to ask for that raise, promotion depending on factors in your personal chart.

OTHER FACTORS  Mercury has just left sextile with Mars. Mars in Libra made some quick no-nonsense introductions, gave options for action on both sides. His leadership is to the point, fights a good fight. Mercury carries the Word, lets the people know about the project, the cause. In Sagittarius, Mercury wants to teach, inspire, go places, look much further ahead, make the plans! Mars will make the exact square to Pluto the wee hours of Sunday the 19th, so New Moon day, or the day before, will see the most challenge. Mars is forthright, wants to cross the gap, make a bridge. Pluto in Capricorn is the old Guard, generally quite cautious, knows how to sidestep upstarts. So prove why what you want is valuable, be persistent, be concise. This may be a time to propose, but have to wait and see.

TWO FIXED STARS!

The New Moon is opposite Mischief-maker Algol at 26 Taurus. It holds a distinction of being an eclipsing binary. Every 68 hours and 49 minutes this Demon Star ‘blinks’ for roughly 8 hours as the dimmer star of the pair passes between the brighter and the earth. We have a ‘duality’ of light and seeming blindness, or a timeout to contemplate. And it is an illusion. We just can’t see the dimmer star though it is there.

Bernadette Brady says: “This star seems to contain immense female passion and power. Algol represents a strong consuming passion that may devour you with anger and rage. If one can contain an unconscious compulsion to take revenge, and from that passion return a more productive outcome, Algol is one of the most powerful stars in the sky. Whatever planet it affects in your chart will be charged with strong, intense sexual energy that has the potential to be wonderful, of if repressed, to lead to rage or violence.” Scorpio is considered to have great passion and power, sometimes plagued by issues of revenge. Either this Star will highlight that, exacerbate it, or draw it off through another on the other side who is steady in the Light.

Diana Rosenberg says Algol in a chart doesn’t necessarily mean that one will inflict or be the victim of horror and mayhem: “you will not be able to ignore suffering and horror, or brush it aside… The Algol placement on a chart insists upon a confrontation and assimilation of these harsh aspects of human experience in this lifetime. Algol, like other stars, confers tasks upon us which, if comprehended and accepted, offer great rewards of power and creativity.” See much more

Procyon, almost 26 Cancer, is also binary, but not eclipsing! It is the smaller of Orion’s hunting dogs. It has a quite different interpretation than the dread Algol. Procyon in trine, a favorable aspect, with our New Moon, likely its more positive factors will be activated. Will-power and ability to put thoughts and plans into action, wealth and renown. With the Sun, a valiant demeanor is indicated! However, it also has a tendency to a hot temper and impudence, and dog bites! Take it easy and don’t torment the dog! LOL

BOWL! All the planets in our New Moon Astrology Chart are in just over half the wheel! That is not so common. A Bowl pattern collects energy in the many ways its planets are in their signs, the circuits they make or don’t among themselves. The energy is contemplated, examined, sorted, healed, enhanced, energized, redistributed. It may be partially or all held for use by the recipient, or perhaps for safekeeping. When the time is right, all or part of it may be poured forth back into the Universe to hold a specific place in the Light Grid. It may be sent to be a receiver/transmitter. It may be called to in turn heal a weak spot in the valence. You can use this kind of energy sustenance, a repair, upgrade replacement, or a system connection of your own. In a clean array, it can attract more amazing energy to mingle with and upgrade to further levels of understanding. No limits!

Depending on where on earth this New Moon chart occurs, the ‘bowl’ may be over the top of the chart acting as a hood! Rather than collecting from above, it gathers rising energy forms from below or ones floating about with no particular strength. Some are keepers, some are transformed and put to a greater use, others yet are dropped to shift and circulate further until they return and are ready to fit the scenario of the ‘bowl’ or they just move on where they do fit. The keepers, the ones the bowl processes, then may be like a living shower of energy collected, potently merged, united in cause, dispersed into the mainstream to magnetize others.

Animal Medicine! Scorpions and snakes that shed their skins, reptiles in general, 8 legged Spiders, Crows, Owls, Bats, Eagle, and Phoenix! From Halloween creatures to mythological, ground dwellers to flyers, Scorpio has quite an array of creatures all symbolizing different facets and skills! Practice and be aware of the energy you are calling or may apply and why.

Again I leave you with Rumi’s words:

“In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.” ~ Rumi (Libra Sun & Mercury, Venus & Mars in Scorpio. Born 9-30-1207)

Full Aries/Libra Harvest Moon!
All 5 Outer Planets Activated! Cardinal & Mutable T Squares!

New Moon! Jupiter now in Scorpio!
Saturn at Galactic Center square Chiron, trine Uranus!

 


Full Aries/Libra Harvest Moon!
All 5 Outer Planets Activated! Cardinal & Mutable T Squares!

Thursday Oct 5, at 11:40 AM Pacific, 12 Aries/Libra 43!

Libra Harvest Moon Celebration Outdoor Dining

Full Moon Party at The Atlantic Hotel & Spa! Guests will feast on a three-course meal from Beauty & the Feast Bar|Kitchen on the 5th Floor Oceanfront Terrace before celebrating the night away! Fort Lauderdale, FL 

Happy Harvest Moon! This year the Full Moon nearest the Autumnal Equinox is in October. It is also called the Hunter’s Moon, Travel or Dying Moon. It is end of summer, beginning of Fall. Leaves are ‘falling,’ days are shortening, it’s getting cooler. Gardeners harvest; Hunters gather and process game for winter stores. Now that harvest is done, we are free to travel.

This year, in social Libra, it is a time to gather with loved ones outdoors, eat sweet moon cakes, admire the harvest moon, and celebrate the abundance of life. The full moon is a symbol of prosperity, wholeness, and reunion. Family and friends—no matter where they are in the world—can gaze upon and enjoy the same beautiful moon. No matter what happens, you have each other! If you are in a fire or storm area, please take some time to give thanks with new friends. To those of you who are hurting, maybe alone for now, we send our love always. Bless you and keep you and yours.

Mercury and Sun are together this Libran Full Moon. Mercury is being very aware and thoughtful of others. Communications are vital when there are disasters or political shakeups. A cool head and a lot of heart can bring people together in unusual circumstances. In spite of discomforts and fear, this is a huge opportunity. Unlikely champions will rise. Prejudicial limitations will seem senseless. We just help each other because we need help. Lifelong friendships will be made across all lines.

The Moon, always opposite the Sun at Full Moons, is in Aries, the sign of forthright action, first responders, leaders. The Moon is unconditional love and support and independently gathers the food and distributes it as needed. We are all Family. This support gives rise to a grateful independence, more assertiveness, fights for rights of our own and in behalf of others, especially for children.

Sun/Mercury and Moon are directly tied with Neptune! Mercury and Sun are inconjunct, askew Neptune. Mercury is logic, Neptune is not. Neptune the Dreamier is more soulful and psychic, impressionistic. Mercury talks, writes lyrics, while Neptune listens or makes music to the words. Sun in Libra brings people, maybe artists, to meet Neptune, but he may be away in the Ashram or not available until late in the night. Neptune may be brightened by the visit but glad when he has his solitude again. Moon in Aries is hard pressed to slow down for these things. She may push too much and lose the game, or the others may catch on and see it’s important not to miss out or delay important progress by not keeping up!

Oppositions have an across-the-table quality. There you are, right before me. We may be different, but we can shake hands, discuss our mutual goals, divvy up the work between us. We may do it differently, but together we can get there! Sun lights the way, Moon supports and reflects the Light to others! Teamwork!

Cardinal T Square! They are bringing the Light to bear on Pluto, a planet of darkness, a holder of secrets and healing! In Capricorn, Pluto is in the Moon’s opposite sign. There is a resonance since Moon rules Mothers and Capricorn is Fathers! The challenge is to raise Pluto’s sights from old ways that used to work, were necessary then, to fresh options and new alliances. Sometimes the Healer needs rescuing! On the other hand, Moon, Sun and Mercury may need to pass through Pluto’s cleansing gateway before they may go on. There is a test for both sides. Will Pluto see the Light? Will the upstarts clear themselves with the Master? Likely there will be a little temporary consternation and perhaps a little chaos, but the Cardinal signs rarely forego a good challenge! They have natural inborn jump starters!

The Mutable T Square starts with Mars and Venus in Virgo opposite Chiron in Pisces, they in turn square Saturn in Sagittarius! This one is more long term since Saturn takes until Nov 2 to square Chiron. The Venus/Mars conjunction is really fresh! It just happened at 9:53 AM Pacific, just a couple hours before the Harvest Moon! There are details to consider, reorganization that pays off. Distribution is needed. Mars does what it takes. Venus goes ahead of him advertising the values of the opportunity! Though working independently for the time being, Mars could use some partners for his project, cause. Chiron may be asleep over there in Pisces, but senses the shift and stirs. Something has happened and as a healer, he is curious what Virgo has started. He prefers herbs and natural remedies when possible.

Saturn, having been in Sagittarius for a while now, is more amenable to learning about healthy remedies that increase longevity. Not only is it important what we learn, but how we learn it, what we do with it and when. Virgos test their ideas, the quality is there as they promise. They are expert at hands on training. Chiron sees the value of the body/mind connection as well of those with the Soul. Saturn thinks this is a working tenet, so engages, giving what time and support he can, lending his name.

Sep 27 Jupiter opposed Uranus! People have been having huge differences of principles, ethics. Politically balances of social constructs have been undergoing dramatic change. Natural disasters have forced people from their homes, families have separated to survive, or from the result of new laws. Fires, floods, earthquakes. Fear has occurred on so many levels. Change, evolution is inevitable, but recently it has been high chaos and tumult! So much at once. Jupiter is the planet of magnitude, Uranus is the masses. No one escapes! I’ve written how Libra is a sign of recovery of balance. While Jupiter is still in Libra until Oct 10, use its ability for all its worth. See where it currently is traversing your personal astrology chart and work it! Together, consciously and well focused, we can get a lot done. So many are stepping up to the plate, ie our super hero this month! JJ Watt, only 28 years old, has raised over $37M Harvey Relief Funds!

Also yet to come is Saturn trine Uranus Nov 11 – 11-11! They are currently 5 degrees apart, but closing. Saturn square Chiron in Pisces comes first Nov 2. First is a possible health challenge, a matter of addictions, old guilt, fears, depression. Depending on how it engages your chart, if it does, you may find yourself on your knees. This is followed by the trine with Uranus, support of friends and community, and the freedom to change. It requires hard work to make the change, but the effort pays off. There may not be fireworks, but a worthy mission will be completed. No shame or blame. This is a life changing passage.

All the outer planets are involved in our Harvest Moon – Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto! This Full Moon is linked with long term factors. AND, ALL the Full Moon inner planets – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars – activate all the outer planets! They all spur the outer planets on, and are themselves changed by the encounters. Not one planet is in a Fixed sign, holding things steady. It’s not the time for it. The Cardinal planets get things moving; the Mutable planets make the accommodations to facilitate flow! It’s a grand integration, truly FULL!x

New Moon! Jupiter now in Scorpio!
Saturn at Galactic Center square Chiron, trine Uranus! 

Thursday October 19, at 12:12 PM Pacific, 26 Libra 35!

Libra New Moon Crescent Sunset

This thin crescent is post Sunset just after a New Moon.

This is the first lunar event of Jupiter newly in Scorpio as of ten, ten, Oct 10th! The context is wholly different now. It’s been 11/12 years, since Oct 2006, and all the outer planets have changed signs! Saturn has been through Leo, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio, now in Sagittarius! Scorpio wants it deep and bonded – for richer or poorer, in sickness and health, ’til death do us part. Lifelong. Jupiter wants vital education for a prosperous future for life to be exceptionally blessed. The stakes are high. When it can, Libra offers the connections needed to enhance the opportunity for it to happen.

Libra is the Sunset time of day. It is the Sign of gathering after the day’s work, sharing what the day brought, planning the next day. It’s a time of equanimity, between day and night, equal at Equinox. We welcome a quieter time of day and year. Days will be shorter and it’s cooler. Some time will be spent in contemplation, creating art that tells our story, makes beauty. We will spend more time indoors together. Rather than scattering for evenings outdoors, we gather indoors for dances, theatre, symphonies, art shows. Being social is natural.

A dark night in Libra can be a most potent meeting of Self and Soul. The Moon relates to her people – forbears and children. The Sun relates to his own heart, his courage, his expression of Light. Together they merge the past with creating a powerful union for the future.

At 26 Libra the New Moon is sextile the Galactic Center, opposite Uranus, the planet of the Heavens! And the New Moon is just past the exact inconjunct with Chiron in Pisces!

The Galactic Center, GC, is a place of huge significance. It ties us with Souls or Beings beyond our wildest imaginings! We may dream or have insights, but more likely impressions that we don’t entirely understand yet feel are important, compelled by, point a direction. We are inclined to be more inclusive, to let go of the daily fraught, raise our sights higher.

Saturn, 23 Sagittarius, is now very near the GC at 26 Sagittarius 59! Saturn will be at the 26th degree Nov 15 to 24. Saturn in Sagittarius calls us to take charge of our future. Work it. Be present, accept the mission. Be respectful of all Paths. It started Feb 16 at 26 Sag 0, moved into 27 degrees and ‘stationed’ there – was direct/moving forward, then April 5 retrograded/turned back. It went back to 26/0 degrees May 25, right after the the second Saturn trine Uranus! That was three months that we were deeply infused. Now we see what needs doing, it’s time. Recent floods, fires and quakes have called for survival, generosity and recovery. I won’t say restoration, because it’s time to do better. We want to build a fresh future. Let go, move forward clean and clear.

Again, Saturn will trine Uranus, only 3 degrees apart now, exact eleven eleven, Nov 11! This is the third and last time. As before, Dec 24, 2016 and May 18, 2017, Saturn collects the scatterings of ideas of Uranus in Aries, unites them in purpose! Responsible networks are formed, some with unique specialties. These networks may be bulwarks to stay tides of falling back in time, yet see values in new ideas and put them to work. New careers of deeper meaning will be created and forged. See more!

This aspect is important because Uranus is 26 Aries 31, directly opposite the New Moon and trine the Galactic Center! There is no chance things will stay the same! You might be scared or so excited you can hardly contain yourself, both! Evolution is! Aries is the leader, champion. Uranus and Aries can be solo, or they can be a tribe of leaders, community leaders worldwide making amazing strides! Libra has more propriety, but is also a sign of leadership, making connection after connection to strengthen the light grid of Humanity! Can’t be done without them. Infusion from the great center of the Galaxy will be potently activating many Souls at this New Moon!

All this will be considered under the auspice of Moon and Sun having inconjunted Chiron in Pisces. Healing insightfully, mindfully, with appropriate timing, with no condescension, is sometimes a delicate achievement. Making your patient, client, student a ‘partner’ in their own healing creates a powerful union.

This aspect helps prepare us for the Nov 2 Saturn square Chiron the third time. That is generally not an easy aspect. It may disrupt your business or your love life. It may remind us of old sorrows, addictions, grief for lost loved ones. Our health could suffer. The change we hope for may seem lost or circumstances insurmountable. Chiron is in Pisces with a wicked imagination! Thank goodness Saturn is realistic and practical. In Sagittarius he is so looking out for a more positive future and actively working for it! Day by day, step by step. Do what you can, you get points for just being able to wait this one out! More better though, if you take measures, no matter how small. You can do it! You can. See more!

Mercury just conjuncted Jupiter in Scorpio for the first time in 11/12 years! What an intense consult! There may have been some awkward moments as we get used to this new energy. Mercury is clever with words, but it’s still a new language. Mercury is rarely overwhelmed, but this time he may have reach for it! Jupiter offers as much as you can take, and Scorpio is famous for extremes!

As with Chiron, Scorpio calls for healing. Jupiter heals and updates our purpose. Mercury heals our mind and communications, thinking and learning skills. What you say, how you say it makes a difference. Jupiter wants the whole Truth. Scorpio may protect what must be protected, but also release important revelations. Mercury’s choice is whether to keep the secret and find a way to bring information to help without letting others know their source or the full story. Or, it may be time to do the journaling and exposé, clean up the mess. Could be a little dangerous. Watch out for compulsions and obsessive mind sets. No verbal abuse – none given, none accepted. No being mean or scornful and self righteously thinking it’s ok because you are ‘right.’ Stay clean. Jupiter has a lot of hope, no matter how ‘dark’ the times may seem. Often things you don’t know about are at work in your behalf. Wait for it. Scorpio is the sign of rising from the dead, the Phoenix from its own ashes! That’s a tough combo to beat. Mercury is good at slipping through the cracks out of harm’s way! Stay with it and don’t give up!

That should be doable with Venus in her own sign Libra watching carefully and treading lightly. She is neighborly semisextile to Mercury. Keep the dance moving, adjust your center as you move. Remember that balance is a living medium, rarely equal or symmetrical. Grace may be more the word. Beauty marks the passage. Kindness shows the way.

Upcoming Saturn aspects make this an important New Moon, as well as this Moon being the first Lunar event in Jupiter in Scorpio! Relationships we make, and how we relate, are critical to our success. Jupiter enjoys Libra – studies, travel, fun! Scorpio is Libra’s astrological neighbor leading the way. Libra supports. In old astrology, Saturn was considered to be exalted, in its best placement in Libra. Libra rules Lawyers, Saturn is the Law! Jupiter is judges! Law is not just what is on the books, but what is in our hearts and the laws of how we treat each other. How we judge, looking for the best in others, keeps us all working for a positive future.

“In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.” ~ Rumi

Aries 2017 New Moon Milky Way Everglades Controlled Burn Mark Andrew Thomas

Milky Way Fire! A controlled burn in Everglades National Park made for a dramatic Milky Way landscape in this mighty panorama by Mark Andrew Thomas!

x
This is no average quiet New Moon! It has FIVE planets in fiery spicy Aries! Venus/Moon/Sun and Uranus/Mercury! Bob Marley sang it, Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!

Venus/Moon/Sun! Love your Mother/Father, the ultimate family union! Aries flavors that combination potently with independence! It is the sign of newborns and Sunrise! Every day truly IS a new day! Venus is the ingenue, toddler to teen to young person. Moon is child or mother, nurtured or nurturing matron. Sun is teen to adept adult. Aries is forever feisty, aiming for independence, rebellious if given a chance! Sweet faced Venus in Aries loves competition, a good fight, fitness excellence, the chance to be #1! Moon in Aries children are often expected to be independent, sometime fending for themselves at an early age, taking care of the other children. Moon is a courageous Mother, maybe a single Mom doing quite well. Papa Sun in Aries loves to adventure with them all, often has an irregular life style, calls his own shots, an inspiring mentor!

  • Venus and Mars are in each other’s signs! It’s called a mutual reception when that happens. Mars is a key planet because it rules all five planets in Aries! But when planets are in each other’s signs, each ‘rules’ the other. Mars is in Taurus, but Venus rules Taurus, so they are ‘more’ equal in this circumstance! Mars is calmed in Taurus; Venus is more frisky in Aries, not her usually sweet as honey self! Mars might take her chocolates and she says thanks, I don’t really want them, so he eats them himself, LOL!It is said the planets can be transposed to each others signs when in reception. You would read Venus in Taurus where Mars is, and Mars in Aries where Venus is! So it would be Mars by the Moon and Sun, and Venus sextile Neptune! Mars would then be in its own sign, pushing the pack! It would have stirred up Moon and Sun right properly as they passed – offering ideas a mile a minute, encouraging immediate action! Venus in Taurus would pledge funding, her loyalty and perseverance to pursue Neptune’s visions. She saw what was a deep value and knows how to show it beautifully to others. They want some too, right away!
  • Venus is retrograde, inconjunct Moon’s North Node in Virgo. Venus knows going back a bit to polish up some details will make a difference! Virgo sometimes doubts, but Venus in Aries has been there before, and confidently encourages a quick experimental shift in the order. It may not come out as either expected, but each step leads to the next, often with better results than thought possible! See more

Uranus/Mercury! Mercury crossed Uranus the day before, 8:05 AM Pacific on the 26th! This is like greased lightning! The lights flash, instinctual insights, awakening at your fingertips! Pure genius! The order may zig zag like a pinball machine, or go so fast straight ahead like a meteor you barely see it, but it’s there! Mercury always brings a hint of duality; there may be parallels! An astounding Name! Computers, conversations, the internet, communications. Astonishing writing for 3 days, 24th, 25, 26! New ideas. Independence and freedom may take the fore In the name of community, world unity! Remarkable new alliances are possible! Take that step forward!

Mercury trines Saturn the 29th the first time of three. Mercury is now in the first phase of it’s 3-part retrograde cycle, slowing to retrograde April 9. See Double Retrograde! Mercury in Aries is quick and logical, gets right to the point. Saturn in Sagittarius is happy, no wasted time, there’s lots to do! Sagittarius has its opinions and Saturn doesn’t always want the divine order disturbed, but darn if Mercury doesn’t have some clever ideas, including how to get them done and be more productive! There could be a whole new department or affiliate! Definitely worth a listen.

Mercury separating semi-sextile Chiron. Mercury is within minutes of this connection, still aware of the Chiron confidences, an exchange of healing and business nuances that make the drive more potent, the sale more satisfying. This subtlety makes us whole, some of it not able to be put into words. But people can feel it and there is an organic trust emerging.

Mars is separating sextile Neptune in Pisces. Mars, the Aries planet, more gentle in Taurus, has invited Neptune to play along! Neptune’s vision sees the whole Universe, makes love with music! Mars in Taurus acts for the Earth! There is a common sense component that Mars wants to fight for in Neptune’s behalf. Neptune intuitively guides, Mars pushes the plow! We all instinctively want to know why should we, and how does it work. Does it really work? These two can put the model together and demonstrate these important points.

On a daily basis, they can solve irrigation problems, set up fire safety. Sitting, meditating, may never be finer, and that massage was the best ever. You were transported. Your body takes on new meaning as the instrument of your beliefs. Walking the water’s edge shows you a special place within your Soul as you commune with yourself across the textures of time and place.

Saturn in Sagittarius square Chiron in Pisces is with us for awhile. They are less than 3 degrees apart now. Saturn will retrograde April 5 to make the second square April 30. If Chiron is marriage, as the Magi Society says, then this is clearly not a time to set your date unless you have overwhelmingly other favorable aspects and neither of these planets is in one of your love life placements! SEE your astrologer. Saturn can be hardship and sorrows and the old words for Chiron are wounded, healer, teacher. Doesn’t pay to take chances with these two in a challenging aspect with each other. Saturn is career, reputation, fatherhood, age, retirement, what you have earned, laws. Chiron is also thought to be business, health care. They are currently at odds with each other. You can easily see that with current politics.

Archangel Gabriel Sounds His Horn. Ft. Worth, Texas

All of us are making breakthroughs as we hit the wall, face our worst fears, surrender to what seems inevitable! We see what doesn’t work, so we let it go. We turn to find there ARE other ways, plenty of them in fact! And they are doable. We seek other options. There are certain responsibilities we must take; some are not ours to do. No guilt. Some matters need a ton of education. We need to place our seeds in fertile soil, nurture them, give them time to grow in dignity at their own pace. Sagittarius and Chiron the healer teachers are being called. Archangel Gabriel is blowing his horn! Saturn wants the facts that can make the possibilities happen! Sometimes the data counts, tells the real story. We want the Truth, nothing but the Truth….

The second Jupiter square Pluto is exact in three days, March 30! At worst this combo can be mean and bullying, goes to extremes and exaggerates. It can also be our wake up call. The wounds or ignorance behind this behavior need healing desperately. Change conniving and manipulation to dialogue and listening when possible. Otherwise, take real appropriate measures to secure your safety. Jupiter is in Libra, sign of balance in relationships; Pluto is deep relationships. Relationships need reassessment since Venus, ruler of Libra, is also retrograde at this time, making 180 shifts. From one side to the other we find a rooted center ground, can manage the winds that blow by. Pluto in Capricorn, and Venus are strongly about financial matters, and Jupiter makes it a big matter. With Venus retrograde caution is advised. Some changes will need immediate attention, and others will be way better left alone until a more favorable time. An experienced, trusted confidant or advisor is needed perhaps. Health may be challenged, Jupiter at times exaggerating conditions, Pluto taking them to extremes. Deep in the fire then rising from the flames! Compulsive obsessive behaviors need to be held in abeyance. Think of long term consequences and goals to help yourself stay on a good course. We want a greater Truth to prevail. We are rebuilding our foundations, forging a more beautiful future. See more!

This ARIES New Moon is the power that helps us stand true to ourselves no matter the challenge!

Full Pink Moon!

Pluto T Square: Sun/Moon Straddles Jupiter Opposition Uranus!

Monday April 10, 11:08 PM Pacific at 21 Libra 33

Full Moon Pink Lunar Eclipse Rassouli - Journey of Love

MERCURY in TAURUS RETROGRADE yesterday! That means Mercury has been in station, ‘standing still,’ the last 4 days and remains so the next 4 days! Mercury stations are a time of focus, absorbing, mulling things over, stabilizing our mind, paying a deeper attention. As we stand still, if we accept it, there is a calming. Any minute motion is registered. It’s like that time when someone has you be still and they ask you what do you hear? And it’s amazing what is there that you take for granted, or just never noticed before. The world is humming all around us all the time. In Taurus it’s an earthy awareness, organic. Our bodies, what our bare feet feel, the texture of the soil. Beauty at our fingertips, the sounds in our ears, the rustle of the leaves or a tiny insect landing. Take the time it takes to tune in to these special things, and the dear people around us. Really listen. It’s a gift.

This Full Moon is during the Double Retrograde! These first 6 days of Mercury Rx, April 9 – 15, are during the finishing Venus Rx, a DOUBLE RX! See more

This Full Moon embraces FOUR outer planet aspects! It has an intense 5 planet T Square in Cardinal signs, Pluto at the point! See the red triangle in the chart below please. Three of the planets, one at each point, are outer planets, indicating long term effects!

1. Last month’s March 12 Full Moon at 22 degrees activated the Jupiter/Uranus opposition that was then at 21/22 degrees. This April 10 Full Moon straddles the Jupiter opposition Uranus! Both of these Full Moons are keeping the March 2nd 22 degree Jupiter opposition Uranus alive, processing its messages! 

The TSquare set starts with the Sun opposite Jupiter on the 7th! If you count the 5 days before that as an active range, it starts the 2nd! Extraordinary proportions and options! The sequence is first Jupiter, then the squares with Pluto, followed by the aspects to Uranus! The set finishes with a bang, the Sun conjunct Uranus April 13! You can easily allow 3 days for it to settle and things move on to other matters, which takes us to the 16th. This important set takes from the 2nd to the 16th, two weeks. It’s not just a come-and-go Full Moon, it’s a process, an experience that reveals observations and learnings from different vantage points. It is important because it ties to the understanding of the many years long Uranus square Pluto and the current Jupiter square Pluto. Please continue reading….

1a Moon goes through the process more quickly. She starts the same afternoon and finishes the next day.

Moon crossed Jupiter before the Full Moon at 3:58 PM Pacific! There’s a great feeling of optimism about relationships, almost feels like new kin! There’s a camaraderie, willingness to journey, a seminar together. Dance, a symphony or play, a meal together would be lovely, thank you!

  • Concurrently, Moon squares Pluto in Capricorn 6:45 PM Pacific. Both water planets, there is a likeness, a knowing. But in square signs, Moon prefers being above board and sharing in Libra, while Pluto in Capricorn guards the well. There is a formality. It wants control, and confidentiality, may not trust or be trustworthy. Maybe it is time to face the consequences and fess up.
  • She Moon opposes Sun, makes the Full Pink Moon at 11:08 PM. It may be a meet and brief, an intriguing exchange. Aries moves on, leaving a legacy if you are quick enough to catch it. He’s excited, wants to go share with many more others! Libra is left lingering and longing, advocating for new possibilities, lining up the team.
  • After the Full Moon, Moon opposes Uranus in Aries at 4:31 AM Pacific on the next day. There is a break for freedom, a surprise potential! The local social troupe takes wings! Your new friend may already be gone, inviting you to visit or meet soon at a third place!

Though not one of the four outer planet aspects, Mars figures in the T Square too. Moon inconjuncts Mars, Mars is semi-sextile Sun/Uranus. Moon is in Libra the sign opposite Mars’ sign Aries. Moon knows what to do with unruly children and has a tenderness for their courage and that they are struggling to grow up. Doesn’t matter how old you are! She can be annoyed, but none the less tries to instill manners, help them see the effect they are having on others, how a different approach can work to their favor. Mars sometimes needs to grow into these ideas over most of their lifetime. First they must be independently themselves! And Moon in Libra may need to do some growing up in that regard – less people pleasing and more spine! Mars in Taurus has to learn peace and patiences while in the midst of action and conflicting needs! No easy task, but doable.

Mars in Taurus in a semi-sextile, a sign ahead of Sun/Uranus in Aries, can be steady and soothing or feel like a boulder in the road! Mars in this position can be the strength and shelter of an oak tree in the storm, watch for openings, lead and persevere when Sun/Uranus would be distracted, give up, not wait. Mars in Taurus can find Sun/Uranus quite unsettling. Or they may be exactly the provocative inspiration he was needing! Once ignited in forward motion he can be Thor through the massive gates!

1b The Sun moves slower than Moon and provides the two week backdrop for Moon’s blitz!

Sun opposed Jupiter 2:39 PM Pacific on the 7th, making it known there are important differences, some space is needed for both to be honored for their own sake. Jupiter, though flexible, still has its prerogatives and opinions, Libra its own sense of etiquette. Aries isn’t usually as concerned with such sensitivities and is annoyed by all that time such social negotiations can take. Jupiter can get carried away with ceremony, and Libra has to make up its mind, be polite to all parties. Sun in Aries, the great Light of Dawn, primordial, shines in a moment, potently lighting the day, asking no one when or what to do! It just does its business and the rest of the world gratefully complies! Jupiter in Libra can put up shapes and funnels to enhance or commandeer such light, but much of it simply blazes its Path! Light is Light!

  • Sun squared Pluto 5:45 PM Pacific April 8. Feelings, ego, heart and Soul could have been hurt. Sun in Aries, and cardinal get started signs, are generally quick to forgive; Pluto in Capricorn may not. Go gently with disagreements that could have irrevocable effects. Better not to have people feel threatened and dig in. Change may take a lot more work and time when that happens. Admit your own part in things, clean up old messes. Give credit for credit due. Open up your heart and break the chain.
  • The last aspect of the T Square is Sun conjunct Uranus 10:29 PM Pacific April 13! That is a golden wild card! Be different, take a chance, BE a new friend! ONE can be a fabulous number! Many #1s can be the tide of change! Network as far and wide as you can! Invent a unique solution! Be the leader! Extend the invitation! Astounding and glorious! Entirely ALIVE!

2.  This Moon witnesses the very last three days, of being within 5 degrees of closeness, of the long time Uranus square Pluto! It started its first of seven exact aspects in 2010! It has been in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17! Uranus is then leaving Pluto behind, and doesn’t go back! The Kundalini has been released! It doesn’t mean these matters are over at the snap of your fingers, not by a long shot. They are being synthesized within our lives, profoundly embedded, wedged into the most private places. They are becoming a strong network of support we gradually don’t even think of consciously anymore. See more

How far, how wide, how high can you go?!?

3.  Though Jupiter is turning away from Pluto, he is still 2 degrees close, and this aspect is part ot the powerful Full Moon T Square! It is fading, but is keeping the March 30 second Jupiter square Pluto in our attention! There may be a calming, but powerful conditions continue to prevail. Still keep watch for secret agendas and alliances, rights forfeited for lack of resistance, lack of attention, apathy, disbelief that could happen. Jupiter in Libra offers a look at the other person’s side, education and negotiation when people are treated with respect, their differences valued. I repeat, we want a greater Truth to prevail. We are rebuilding our foundations, forging a more beautiful future. See the last paragraph of the New Moon above, and See more!

4.  The fourth outer planet aspect is the upcoming second Saturn retrograde square Chiron April 30! It is already less than 2 degrees.

Saturn square Chiron/Venus. Venus retrograde in Pisces squares Saturn twice, April 8, two days before the Full Moon, and when Venus is not retrograde April 21. There are costs and the budget may not be enough. Love is not what it used to be or expectations are too high. Reconsider values, high priced or a super bargain! Out of work partners may not be chosen. Self indulgence may be curbed. A vow to work more effectively could get the job done against the retrograde odds. Hold off on beauty choices – remodels, wardrobes, elective surgeries, entertainment ventures.

Venus ALMOST conjuncts Chiron! She gets into the 26th degree, makes her station there, but turns forward at 26 Pisce 54, while Chiron is at 26 Pisces 31! It’s very, very close, a whispered invitation, reminder, a presence for several days, can see her, but no consummation. It’s haunting and taunting because Venus is love, and the Magi society says Chiron is the marriage planet! But them squaring Saturn indicates it’s not the time yet, or if proceeded with, a  karmic union weighty with learning. A strong yearning at the time may surprisingly fade away and be forgotten sooner than expected.

Saturn and Chiron are both dedicated. Saturn in Sagittarius wants the knowledge, the faith in futures, commitment that has meaning more than money. It works hard, gets tired and down on its knees at times. It fathers a structure that withstands the storms. Saturn wants good standing as a parent, and among his peers. Chiron is a good business person, and in Pisces makes almost surreal intuitive choices. Saturn and Chiron could compromise. Saturn is practical, and could be more generous than usual in broad minded Sagittarius. Chiron in Pisces wants healing and can understand, though they may not sell out certain beliefs. Work with the things where give and take is possible. Let the rest go for another time. Let the Soul do its work. See more!

There have been tests of faith, need for keeping the long term in mind. Challenges take many forms, different for each of us. Determined mindfulness and steady action bring significant, even historic results. Minute by minute, stay focused on common sense solutions. Tipping points are achieved, thresholds crossed! There will be winning changes!

In gratitude for your profound work.

New Moon!  Four Planets in Pisces, Mercury Cardinal T Square, Venus!

First New Moon of 2017 is Friday January 27, 4:07 PM Pacific at 8 Aquarius 15!

milky-way-over-arecibo-puerto-rico-by-ferdinand-arroyo

View larger  Milky Way over Arecibo, Puerto Rico by Ferdinand Arroyo. From its completion in 1963 until July 2016 Arecibo Observatory’s 1,000-foot (305-meter) radio telescope was the world’s largest single-aperture telescope.

Aquarius is a fantastic sign! Aquarians have amazing minds, from scrambled to genius, bodies unlike no other, have been to the wildest places, have friends beyond your ken. With both the Moon and Sun in the same place at the same moment it’s like high wires sizzling! Don’t expect the usual blather or time to stand still. It’s like twins with their own language, only these Beings are tuned in to the Galactic Center, the hub of our galaxy that connects with other galaxies! If your chart has factors at or very close to 8 degrees, you will be on the Grid with them and catch some of the Universal News! New Moons end one cycle, begin another. Aquarius makes it snappy!

The semi sextile with Neptune, in its own sign Pisces, will catch rare bits of script that will cast a spell over passages, some becoming illuminated like a lightning bolt, alive to the point of making you think you will leave your body! Other parts will be placed in the denial category to be sifted later by the subconscious into tolerable proportions. Insights and visions of the semi sextile, and the three other planets in Pisces, will be as vivid dreams that seem so real you don’t believe they didn’t happen, and when they do, you WILL remember!

Venus in Pisces

The preceding Jupiter inconjunct Chiron in Pisces of Dec 31 feathers out its new ideas about healing, spreads the word among colleagues and contacts, polishes the local artifacts, draws out beauty and charity. They are steadily in their inconjunct until they do it again exact on Valentine’s Day! Venus just went by Chiron in her gypsy veils, gave Chiron a sweet kiss. Been awhile since someone noticed him that way. So he is warmed and charmed, gave her a gift. She told Jupiter about it and he, in her sign Libra, thinks the information can be taught, maybe published!

As she squares Saturn, she makes him remember his square with Chiron Dec 28, what sorrows that may have brought, perhaps bittersweet breakthroughs too that still may need some repairs and integration. Venus may have doubts, moments of hesitation, need to comfort or lend a hand. She assures him there are dear Soulmates out there and his time will come. He assesses how well she is doing, reminds her of the long term goals and how important they are. She straightens, yet we know she will do it her way in Pisces, as she must. She is even more a believer in Pisces, but good old Saturn is the task master and he knows being on time can make or break our progress. We know he is right, so we get back on course with renewed focus.

Venus is then on her way to bless Mars in Pisces, but he quickly changes into his own sign Aries! He changes the same day as the New Moon, at 9:39 PM Pacific! The next day is Chinese New Year, the year of the Red Fire Rooster! How apropo that Mars, the red fire planet, is in Aries, the red sign, right on time for that day! He leaves Venus behind while she begins to slow to retrograde, so the connection isn’t made. They may converse about Piscean matters, but he has to carry her wishes on without her. Likely he will because she asked him so kindly and in Aries he takes action! He is, after all, the Champion, the Hero!

Jupiter sextile Saturn in Sagittarius has been and is still quite close, but Jupiter is backing away, stilling to retrograde Feb 5. So they discuss the projects, but for the time being Saturn will need to carry the building forward while Jupiter thinks things over in Libra. Jupiter will think on who does which work best, proportions – how much of this and that, beauty versus necessity. They will come back together, make their exact connection, complete their project Aug 27.

Cardinal T Square! Mercury potently conjunct Pluto, Square Uranus and Jupiter! Cardinal signs gets things started! Mercury is very earthly logical, practical in Capricorn, and looks at the extremes with Pluto. From birth to death, poverty to billionaires, cheating to ’til death do us part, impotent to charismatic! Uranus in Aries lights the Spirit afire, may have burnout, leave outgrown friends behind only to find ones with ideas far ahead of their times. It may be alone or working on an international project that uses every minute fraction of their mental physics, consumed with creation! All this calls Jupiter in Libra to record the story, recode it for the lay person. Jupiter is not afraid of far reaching effects, expands the territory with alacrity! It requires Jupiter’s ability to grasp the magnitude of the perceptions then balance them cleverly in Libra so there is a stunning play of wholeness achieved! The Aquarian overtone adds the innate need for it to work as above, so below, as in nature, air over Earth.

Amongst all the unpredictable Aquarius New Moon, Jupiter loving switching sides in Libra, Venus sashaying about, all that mutable morphing Pisces, and Mercury stirring the Pluto point of the cardinal get-things-started brew, know that you don’t know! It may take months to decipher what happened! It will be computers and beyond computers. It will be the most pristine data but put together in a way that defies what most people think and will even make Aquarians wonder!

It is a perfect first New Moon for 2017! Earth, Science, and Heavenly Magic!

Full Snow Moon! LUNAR ECLIPSE!

LUCKY Grand Fire Trine Sun KITE, Mystic Rectangle, Chiron Yod, Two Midpoints!

Friday February 10, 4:33 PM Pacific at 22 Leo 28

Moon Setting Eclipse Patrick Cullis Indian Peaks Boulder Colorado

A big eclipsed Moon setting in the early morning hours of December 10, 2011. The Indian Peaks are a series of peaks on the continental divide near Boulder, Colorado. By amazing photographer Patrick Cullis

The First Eclipse of 2017 has a complex bouquet, is laden with opportunities!

This is a rare total Penumbral Eclipse! The Moon moves through the faint, outer part of the Earth’s shadow. It is often hard to differentiate between a normal full Moon and a penumbral eclipse of the Moon, but watch closely, at the time, for deep penumbral shading on the north half of the lunar disk! The apparent diameter of this Moon is larger than average since the eclipse occurs 4.4 days after perigee (nearest Earth).

It is still a line up, Sun, Earth, Moon. Aquarius Sun will shine on the part of Earth facing the Sun, infusing his Light. In light wave fashion, Sun moves the molecules, Earth transmits and filters this energy to Mother Moon waiting in the Shadow. Moon in Leo is receptive, absorbent, generously cradling, nurturing. She returns her own Light of the heart, delicately mingling, intertwining like DNA flowing both directions, with the incoming Light, through Earth, back to Sun, giving her support, showing how much we care. She has a lot of Love to give.

Full Moon at 22 degrees is most closely tied with Chiron at 22 Pisces. Sun semi sextiles its neighbor. Moon is inconjunct, an aspect of peripheral awareness and adjustment. What might have started as a nuisance, a sense of being misaligned, becomes an adjunct factor that invites and enriches. It is less directly involved, so has less bias. It could even become the next branch, or the new main direction! Moon is a nurturer and senses Chiron’s needs though in Pisces they can seem more whimsical than real. If there are debilitating addictions, it is more serious. Moon is experienced and sees the nuances of value, and in Leo is uplifting. Moon in Leo may always be concerned to do its best, be on. Chiron sees any weaknesses and subtly advises reasonable moderation and self care. Chiron may be able to do some oblique healing from that off center angle.

Chiron YOD! With Chiron’s inconjunct Moon, it is also inconjunct Jupiter, a more long term aspect, forming a ‘Y’! The inconjunct with Jupiter is strong, because as Chiron moves forward into it, Jupiter is retrograding back to meet it! Their first exact aspect was Dec 31, 2016, the last aspect of 2016. It is holding now closely until it makes the second exact aspect on Valentine’s Day! The adjustment this inconjunct requires is a fine tuning of our beliefs, acknowledging healing needed, updating how we teach and speak, our life work and relationship choices. Those are big topics. One alone would be big, but now they are unifying as a whole! Jupiter wants you to look further ahead, to add good will, trust you will do ok, to connect you higher up the food chain in a good way. Allow that!

Chiron is at the semi sextile MIDPOINT between Sun and Uranus. The amazing astronomical geometry about the Chiron/Uranus combination is that it started Nov 2008 and continues through Sep 2021, a total of THIRTEEN years!  See more The Sun of this Eclipse lights it right up! Sun semisextiles Chiron, sextiles Uranus, the Aquarian planet! Chiron watches, perhaps silently, in Pisces, noticing the beauty of their bringing the masses to a new level of awakening, how our differences are our contributions. New songs are written in a flash, an acceptable unique style arises! A penumbral Eclipse is a subtle wellspring. Sun/Uranus will use blatant excitement and wild word cues that spark curiosity that had lain dormant but is now eager! Chiron may whisper a caution here or there, or lean forward when the cues are perfectly unzipped!

LUCKY Grand Fire Trine Sun KITE, Mystic Rectangle!

Only one point is missing, the Gemini position, to make a Grand Sextile! See all those connected green lines in the chart?! Moon bases a Grand FIRE Trine KITE pattern!

The Mystic Rectangle is composed of two parallel trines, Moon trine Uranus and Sun trine Jupiter! The Rectangle is completed by sextiles, Moon sextile Jupiter, and Sun sextile Uranus! SO many lucky aspects! Read on….

The Grand trine Kite is the Moon, Saturn, Uranus Grand trine with the Sun midpoint between Saturn and Uranus is the KITE!

  • Moon trines Saturn in Sagittarius, a Mother to Father Time arrangement. There is harmony with the softness of women and the sweetness of children. Saturn is the Father, securing shelter, working for a long good life. Leo and Sagittarius are both teachers, so educational choices are blessed. Leo is a creator sign, of expression like performance, and through color and lighting. Saturn in Sagittarius so wants their project to excel, have a long life, contribute meaningfully. Their collaboration potential is exceptional.
  • Moon trines Uranus in Aries, the planet of friendship, awareness, awakening, international community! Moon is your neighborhood, local community. Uranus is friends and world community! Moon is commodities of daily living, Uranus is the inventor that makes daily life more comfortable and fun. Moon has the memory banks of the matriarchy, history, an intuition that can’t be beat! Uranus is the holder of a hub of insights of future possibilities. Together there is a blessed alliance, rich progress!
  • Saturn trine Uranus is a long term aspect, first happened Christmas Eve, Dec 24. It will retrograde soon and return to the trine, but not until May 18. It is within 4 degrees now, still mulling over how it will fold good changes into working living, how to repair any damages or difficulties that change has brought. Saturn is persistent, wants to put things to good use. Though it is moving away for the time being, that doesn’t mean it is giving up, not coming back. In Sagittarius it will have a good look about and discover more successful ways of making changes that bring better living, to broaden our range of possibilities.
  • Sun in Aquarius is sextile MIDPOINT right between Saturn and Uranus making the KITE pattern! Saturn was the old ruler of Aquarius, Uranus is the current ruler of Aquarius! Earthy Saturn rules ancient things, archaeology, while airy Uranus rules inventions, planes, computers, the Internet! Times are bound by Saturnian Earth laws that will always be, by Karma and Dharma, what we have done and our mission each life. Uranus explores the outer reaches, keeps calling us forward in evolution, offers new ways to align disparate beliefs, awakens whole groups of people to their potentials! The Sun, Leo’s planet, puts warmth in this process, lights the way with love and heart that gives us the courage to step up! Strong friendships and community and world networks will figure in prominently.

Jupiter in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries knits this lucky pattern even further! Jupiter offers the blessings of connections both local and foreign, education, abundance possibly through grants and scholarships. Jupiter trine Sun, is a hella lucky, fame & fortune aspect! It gives an exemplary sense of personal confidence and trustworthiness, far reaching vision, enjoyable potential. Jupiter sextile Moon is another lucky prosperous aspect! Moon intuitively knows cycles, excellent for stock trades and investments. Moon gives Mother love, is strong and protective, while Jupiter supports relationships with peoples of different cultures, economic standing, faiths, ages.

Saturn sextiles Sun and trines Moon! Saturn is a grounding planet though now in Sagittarius is its more flexible in its demands. It may be more opinionated, but if a better way is demonstrated, it will make the change. Sun in Aquarius wants to be free and is easily bored, but Saturn in Sag can be wise enough to favorably gain their attention and contribute to the Sun’s research and international work. Saturn is at times a little old fashioned and stuffy and that is something Aquarius will never be! Saturn has to come up to speed in modern terms sometimes so things can progress in context of our current times. Yep, ok, understand, will do. See Moon trines Saturn above.

Another long term aspect is Saturn square Chiron. This one was exact the first time Dec 28. For some it brought sorrows and losses of all kinds depending on how it was with their personal charts. We lost Zsa Zsa Gabor, George Michael, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds and William Christopher in that period. The next exact aspect is April 30, and the last Nov 2. Saturn are things we are held responsible for, in Sagittarius it has to do with faith, learning, promoting, being ethical, truth without exaggeration or omits. Chiron in Pisces can be fragile or a powerful believer with profound visions. Saturn is a hard worker and will expect them to measure up, find ways to get the job done. Chiron invites Saturn to let go of chronic matters, rigid boundaries, harsh expectations. Some things are just bigger than we are and we must let go and grow with them, time changes the parameters. Sometimes a gentle approach with encouragement tips the scales.

Jupiter sextiles Saturn in Jupiter’s sign Sagittarius! Jupiter is still close though retrograding away. They have been together for months, so the considerations their combination brings is gradually seeping into our consciousness. It’s a working arrangement fueled by legal and amazing design advice, plus Saturn’s expertise at building structures that suit the environment. Work is a pleasure, education pays off, travel is a welcome component!

Apart from all the aspect network above, Mercury, also in Aquarius, is sextile Venus in Aries at the same degree, and Mars in its own sign Aries! This is a combination of brilliant intelligence! Mercury with Venus is the blessing of kind words, words that show love, are spoken like poetry, give appreciation! Aquarius and Mars and Aries are looking for freedom and independence. They can act potently alone, but paradoxically once they are free enough, mature in their Spirits, they are are free to choose to work together and in groups when it makes sense. There is that phrase, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Venus is slowing to retrograde March 4, so it doesn’t make the conjunction with Mars. She’s close enough to give Mars the current information, the inspiration of her gratitude! He will fight in her behalf, loves being the instigator, first one there, the fearless chief! He rises to challenge with super vitality!

Though Full Moons are oppositions, Moon opposite Sun, this one is laced with favorable connections. And if we think of planets opposite each other that doesn’t have to mean they are against each other. Think incorporation, collaboration! Each has their gift to give. In this case, Leo is the sign of the heart of Light, lovers! Valentine’s Day is the Aquarius holiday! Aquarius is the philanthropist, distributes wealth, has planet wide connections and projects for people, initiates environmental healing and maintenance. It is brotherly love, just a different dimension of the possibility of love in its wholeness!

With all my praises of these aspects, all those positive blue and green lines in the chart, they won’t be good for everyone, or will have no effect at all. They will only be good for those whose charts they activate in a good way. Please see your astrologer to find how they are situated per your personal chart. Also, the time of day events are initiated makes a huge difference and those times of day are not the same for every person. Please. See your astrologer.

That said, I wish you great success!

Overview of 2017 Planetary Backdrop 

2017 opens with three outer planets in Cardinal signs: Jupiter in Libra, Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn. Cardinal signs initiate. Aries is the spark, a leader. Libra, his opposite, invites, greets and makes introductions. Capricorn instinctively builds the shelter, protects the gathering. Together, we are inspired, form lasting unions. Saturn and Neptune remain in Mutable signs Sagittarius and Pisces. Flexibility brings Grace. Things are not so hard and fast. Systems will change, be more accommodating, yet there is no compromising what’s Sacred. It seems at times there is no direction, but somehow everyone arrives at the same time! Saturn and Neptune, Dharma and Spirit, blend and bind us meaningfully, with every fiber, to a greater purpose, more significantly than of any one of us alone.

The long time Uranus square Pluto is finally finishing! It started its first of seven exact aspects in 2010! It is in the final 5 degree close range 11.29.16 to 4.13.17 and doesn’t go back! See more

The six aspects that started Oct 23, 2016, repeat twice and continue through Nov 11, 2017. The challenging aspects run through Nov 2. Of 14 2017 aspects, 4 are considered favorable. The aspects span from 11 degrees to 27 degrees, so likely all of us will be activated one time or another. Jupiter, the fastest of the outer planets, makes 10 of these 14 aspects; Saturn makes the other 4. Continue to make sustainable living choices. Be ready and flexible for lots of changes.

Many are waiting, getting poised for the phenomenal 2018 sweep of positive aspects! There are way fewer aspects! It has 6 favorable, only 1 difficult at the end of the year. Jupiter is making ALL the aspects! There are a LOT of sign changes, FIVE! That will more than stir the brew! Don’t expect things to be settled, but the changes bode well, new times! Live closely now so you are free to invest in 2018.

Sign Changes

Sign changes set the tone of and standards for the year. The first sign makes a secure platform for the next sign’s success. For example, Libra establishes fitting relationships, connections, for Scorpio works to be deepened. Sagittarius learns everything it can to get the Capricorn job/career, to make a significant Capricorn achievement.

For most of the year, until October, Jupiter and Saturn are in Libra and Sagittarius, outgoing and curious. Then Jupiter goes into Scorpio and it can get a little obsessed, ventures easily going on into the night, Scorpio’s favorite time. After we get used to this change of venue, Saturn finally makes his change into his own sign Capricorn! No more fun and games, it’s time to get down to business. Less socializing, things to get done, and they do get done! May be an inch at a time, but they are determined. Each step begets another. And it multiplies and goes faster as we get used to it!

Jupiter and Saturn change Signs. Jupiter starts in Libra. See Jupiter into LIBRA! Libras work for successful and elegant relationships, professional liaisons, powerful representation. Jupiter loves to learn and travel, and Libra loves art and culture. Very syncopatic combination! October 10, Jupiter enters Scorpio and goes underground, scouts behind the scenes, checks the financial infrastructure, funding, wonders if you truly love them, seeks the meaning of life and death! There comes a healing collaboration with a meaningful purpose. There is less time for simple sociality, some relationships will be left behind, others renewed and rededicated.

Jupiter makes 4 aspects, and Saturn makes 2 aspects, that started late 2016, open 2017 and finish 11.11.17. Eleven, eleven! The most dramatic of the Jupiter set is Jupiter opposition Uranus that finishes the Jupiter set Sep 27. The Saturn pair finish with Saturn trining Uranus, both sets finishing with an aspect to Uranus, making Uranus the key planet!  Saturn’s 11.11.17 last trine with Uranus is the first aspect of a year long series of 2017-18 positive aspects beginning Nov 11! Uranus is the planet of Evolution, Stars, Space. Friendship alliances help us make change, find freedom. We can be the different specialist person we were born to be! Conversely, sometimes being alone helps us clear our mind, uninfluenced we find our unique path.

After these two with Uranus, Saturn changes Sign Dec 19 from Sagittarius to joining Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s own sign! Capricorn and Scorpio, Jupiter’s new sign, get along. In fact, the combination is another way of saying Pluto in Capricorn! Pluto is Scorpio’s planet! Capricorn is the last Earth sign. It’s majestic mountains jut up into the sky, magnificent views inspire our quests. Winter Solstice Capricorn builds strong because it knows just how much weather it could need to withstand. It emphasizes necessities, knows the realities, wastes no time. The work of the Soul takes top priority.


A look at 2017 Aspects of Note, Planetary Patterns!

2017 opens the day after the Dec 31, 2016 Jupiter inconjunct Chiron. They will stay close until the second exact aspect Feb 4 2017. The 2016 Oct to Dec Jupiter set – inconjunct Neptune, square Pluto, opposite Uranus and inconjunct Chiron – will reverse through these 4 aspects through mid May holding the Jupiter inconjunct Neptune closely until July 4! It finishes the set entirely wildly Sep 27 opposite Uranus! The retrograde/direct turning points, adjustment making inconjuncts with Chiron and Neptune, are important because of the duration they are held and that they are turning points. Major aspect Jupiter opposite Uranus is super charged, expect bold changes! Jupiter square Pluto was the prominent Presidential Election aspect and holds the keys to the financial kingdom!

Jupiter square Pluto and opposition Uranus, makes a framework for several provocative Cardinal T Squares and a Grand Cross as Moon, Sun, Mercury or Venus move through Aries. The Feb 26th 22 degree Mars exact conjunction Uranus, plus they opposite Jupiter should be spectacular to say the least! Make sure your insurance is up to date and comprehensive, covers fire/heat and electronics/electricity – wiring, explosions. Earlier in the day of the April 10 Aries/Libra FULL MOON, the Moon and Sun straddle the Jupiter opposition Uranus axis! Extraordinary proportions and options!

Saturn squares Chiron, trines Uranus. Careers and businesses will be challenged, breakthroughs possible. Times change. Those who are innovative for the greater good, and work in harmony with friends and community, will prosper. The May 18 second and Nov 11 last trine to Uranus will occur at the degree of the Galactic Center! The square and trines were only 4 days apart, finishing aspects at Christmas 2016, and make their third and last aspects quite closely again Nov 2 and 11, 2017. That Nov 11 aspect launches a year of uninterrupted classically favorable aspects!

Uranus and Chiron will be aspected 4 times each. Healing change. Businesses will be called to be more inclusive of all beings, broadened by their new connections.

The last aspect of 2017 is Jupiter trine Neptune Dec 2! Let the magical journey begin! Saturn changes signs, into it’s own sober and mighty productive sign Capricorn Dec 19, just before Winter Solstice! Some say Solstice is the true New Year.

Uranus square Pluto is in its LAST 5 degree period of that square! It is in a 5 degree or less closeness 11.29.16 to 4.13.17, Uranus then leaving Pluto behind.
 
In the background, Chiron semi-sextile Uranus has been in a continuous 3 degree underlying pattern since Nov 2008, continues through 2021, 13 years! The exact 2017 dates are July 29 and Dec 28.

Be well, well loved, may you prosper, and all your good works be blessed….

New Moon!  Four Planets Capricorn, Three in Pisces! Midpoints, Two T Squares!

Wednesday Dec 28, 10:53 PM Pacific at 7 Capricorn 59, the last one of 2016!

Capricorn 2016 New Moon Teton Milky Way Royce Bair

Grand Teton Range, Milky Way, Standing Tree People by amazing photographer Royce Bair

This is our last Moon of 2016, and potent it is! It ends one cycle, begins anew as our year ends and another is immanent. It has two planetary groupings – Capricorn and Pisces, and is nested in the four major aspects ending 2016 that are in only an eight day timeframe on the very day of Saturn square Chiron!

Four planets in Capricorn celebrate our achievements! The New Moon merger of Mother Moon with Father Sun are in the sign of Father Capricorn. This time of year we need Mother Moon’s nurturing at a time she’s really busy and maybe a bit tired. Know she loves you. Take some time out together. Our heavenly Feminine and Masculine forces are united. Practice that unity. Moon is there to nurture and comfort. Sun lights the way. Though days are short for the time being, he is a stalwart champion through many a dark hour.

Mercury at 6° is right with the New Moon at 7°! In Capricorn it calls for respect, long term commitment, a pledge to work honorably for meaningful goals, to hold honor. Paying attention is a prized skill, so potent moments are noted, synthesized, stabilized for continued use. Stillness, a pause, is like frozen magic! It lets us see, hear, in a profound way, to know the true abiding values that take us forward through time. Sign the papers.

Pluto, in Capricorn since 2008, now midway through Capricorn, has cleared many personal faults, changed our economic and political stances, opened doors to many new careers, taken a lot of new looks at parenting and aging. Planetary temperature shifts have brought new thought about agriculture, construction and sustainability. There is a mixture of fate and futility with gathering facts, doing research, and steadily working to turn things around, adopt new potentials!

Three planets in Pisces! From Capricorn Unicorns to SeaGoats to Mermaids this is a magical New Moon!! Mercury Moon and Sun sextile Mars and the Pisces planet Neptune! A five planet earth and water sextile! You can see the ocean from the mystical heights of Capricorn! The mountains guide Piscean sailors along the beautiful coast. Mars in Pisces can be still as a mirror at sea, swoons with waves, rocks in the cradle. Other times he roars, tsunamis to shore, pounding the rocks into grains of sand! He is enchanted by Neptune’s insights as he slithers like a seal through the seaweed, surfs like a dolphin, breaches like a whale! The ocean is like a giant prism, with glimpses of tiny creatures in dappled sunlight slanting down or gliding, guiding up like through a cathedral.

Ah, did I get carried away? Just wanted you to feel it as it lives. Mar in Pisces with Neptune. Pisces is so all seamlessly encompassing we really can feel that all are one. The ocean is a salty cleaning machine. It is mystical on a foggy night. We can sit in the temple so still we hear our breath and heartbeat, feel our life’s pulse. It is humbling to be a part of all Souls. We see what needs doing. Capricorn is the last of the Earth signs, the ultimate pragmatist. Mars will lean his shoulder to the timber of Capricorn’s project, guiding it with his very body to intuitively place it exactly as needed. Miracles really happen and dreams do come true. The high five is a salutation of gratitude.

The Holiday Four

  1. This New Moon follows the Christmas Eve Saturn trine Uranus. They are still quite close by numbers and actively integrating new alignments! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet and Uranus is the planet of the next sign Aquarius. Trines are considered to be the best linkage between planets. Saturn and Uranus are so opposite they often aren’t friends. Saturn is perhaps the most conservative of all the signs. Uranus has no such constraints, cares for no party in particular and doesn’t care what YOU think. Yet scientific Capricorn is likely to be one of the first who supports Aquarian inventions, and sees the value of Aquarian community goals, the internet, and certain philanthropies. Change can become fact.
  2. Jupiter was opposite Uranus only two days before on the 26th! Another major aspect still active! Jupiter in Libra is quite lively lining up the Souls either to oppose you or shake hands across the table! Uranus in Aries couldn’t be more independent spirited, but also is the leader of reform groups or instigators of united efforts of several groups together! Jupiter in Libra pulls in law and justice, speaks widely socially, compares peoples and times anthropologically. The gap may be huge, but so is the reach across the chasm! Mergers for solidarity make sense.
  3. On this very day of our New Moon, Saturn Squares Chiron at 3:06 PM Pacific. There may be, or have been, losses or perceived potential losses of love, life, money, career, health. This aspect has been close for some time, so we already have inklings what needs attention, propping up, to be let go of, worked for. Each thing you take care of is a step, something you won’t need to deal with later. Keep focus on your priorities. Maybe get  plans on your calendar. Saturn in Sagittarius can see a worthy future worth the work. Do it!
  4. The last aspect of 2016! The remaining aspect the what I’m calling the Holiday Four is Jupiter inconjunct Chiron the 31st!  An inconjunct is often a stretch, an off balance reach to the side. It is seductive to those who are curious. It may take you off track, yet give you vital information. You may decide to keep on going on that new road! Jupiter in Libra has met many on their travels, some even intriguing to Chiron, an old Master, in Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac, not impressed by much. Jupiter, however, ups the ante, smart in Libra, thinks of combinations that change the pace! And likely the place too! Social venues are adjusted, financial options are altered, health is adapted to new circumstances. Stay calm, eyes open, flexible. Check with experts, take your time when you can.

See more about the Holiday Four! Are all big aspects, outer planet to outer planet. It is unusual to have 4 of them happen so closely in time, the 24th, 26, 28 & 31st!

Give yourself credit for all you have achieved in 2016! Thank you for every step you have taken.

Full Wolf Moon! – Grand Cardinal Square, 4 Planets in Pisces 4 at 22°!

Thursday January 12, 3:34 AM Pacific, at 22 Cancer 27 

Capricorn, First Full Moon of 2017, Wolf

And we’re off! The first Moon of 2017! Another Capricorn – Pisces time of miracles and magic!

Moon is in her own sign Cancer, tender but strong. She births. She tenderly cares for loved ones and finds ways to feed the multitudes. It is an honor to be her mate. Father Sun is ultimate Father in Capricorn, Father Time. He builds the shelter, protects, works, teaches responsibilities and a moral code.

Full Moons are of opposite signs, major differences, yet as dynamic contributors to a mutual cause, they can work together. Cancer is known for its sensitive emotionalism. It is a bell bellwether to the possibility of upcoming trouble. Capricorn has less sympathy, is more a get it done type, especially in challenging times. Each helps the other. Cancer helps guide through what can be illogical. Capricorn takes charge and gives great hope through its efforts, the smallest steps meaningful. Five days previously, Sun made his annual conjunction with Pluto. The five days previous to that conjunction, Sun intensely considered financial matters, the state of relationships, matters of life, death and healing.

Grand Cardinal Square! Our Full Moon is crossed by Jupiter opposite Uranus spanning Aries to Libra! Aries is fiery Spirit leader; Uranus is an air planet, the Awakener and ChangeMaker! This combination can be sudden, a bit shocking, intriguing, here and gone in a flash, to pop up unexpectedly quickly somewhere else! Jupiter in Libra is fascinated, doesn’t mind the trip, meets these extraordinary Beings along life’s Path. Aries is willing to fight for it, while Libra can be the lawyer, seeking peaceful resolution, but will do what it takes if their back is against the wall. Be cautious of exaggerations, but step up to the plate if it appears to be well founded and you are needed.

Our Cancer Moon might rather stay at home, but if home, or women and children are the issue, it will stand up too. They will take food to the marchers, blankets to the homeless. Capricorn prefers law and order, so has pals at the courthouse and in the police force, but here again, if people are in dire need, they will build those emergency shelters. Having had their own hard times, they have empathy, will teach others how to care for themselves. It’s good for our staunch Cancers and Cappies to meet new people, make extended liaisons community wide, be more informed. It can be a little scary when the new ones are dressed differently, their demeanors are fierce or they appear quickly. It may take awhile to adjust. At times Cancers or Caps may appear slow, but not so, they are taking it in, thoughtfully processing. It’s safer at times to slow things down. All four signs have special things to offer and to integrate can mean a more comprehensive solution!

Three of the Grand Square planets are at 22°, plus Saturn! Chiron is at 21 Pisces, and Uranus is at 20 Aries. That’s a tight pack of six planets! Jupiter inconjuncts Chiron Dec 31, 2016, the last aspect of 2016. Jupiter upps the amps on Chiron’s attention, bringing new insights on how to balance all types of systems in our bodies, minds and Spirit. New types of relationships are offered extending our network beyond what we thought possible! This aspect stays alive while Mars conjuncts Chiron Jan 16, then inconjuncts Jupiter Jan 17.Saturn trines Uranus Christmas Eve, Dec 24th. Working friendships have been a blessing. Support has come from surprising places. Keep these connections alive and well. Saturn is same degree sextile Jupiter, very, very close Dec 28 and 29, yet doesn’t make the exact aspect until Aug 27! This is a great planning aspect, and it’s a pleasure to get things done! Saturn in Sagittarius squares Chiron Dec 28, has been taking its toll – many Souls taking the Long Journey. Grieving is still fresh for many. See the Holiday Four.

FOUR planets in Pisces, two pairings! Moon is leaving a trine with Mars and Chiron. Moon has leant her nurturing to further rouse Mars’ compassion in Pisces, Chiron’s dedication to teaching and healing. Mars left sextile Pluto on the 10th, steadied and productive by Pluto in Capricorn’s strength and focus. Mars conjuncts Chiron Jan 16. This will perhaps cause wounds to our feet or our Soul. But Mars also may also give new insights that quicken healing! Fevers or fighting, cuts or rashes, punctures, stings. If you are seaside or on a boat, in the spa or bathtub, be a tad cautious. You may be inspired to take up art, magic, a special new line of work may come involving teaching. A soulful relationship may come your way, especially with Venus conjunct Neptune in Pisces!

Venus and Neptune in Pisces make love and beauty. They can be comforting when your Soul is in danger. Self indulgence, addiction, is a danger if extreme, and holidays can bring up deep rooted family issues that need soothing. Be wise with your time. Know your limits, others’ limits. Be safe emotionally, stay away from hot topics, leave before regretful escalation, make visits brief. Eat right, be well rested. Take good care of yourself, be wise to getting support for yourself, make that call. Love may win, but sometimes it takes time, and you may not even be the one to bring changes to fruition. Teachers and healers know you can’t heal everyone every time. Often there is no failure at all. Turn your Spirit to creating music, going to sea, swimming, serving in kindness, spirituality. When you are up, support others in their time of need.

Venus conjuncts Neptune at 1:54 PM Pacific. That would be a gentile time to have a warmer daytime gathering, a Circle, to celebrate the Full Moon.

Mental transition! Mercury leaves Sagittarius, enters Capricorn at 6:04 AM Pacific, 2.5 hours after the Full Moon! While in Sagittarius, raise your eyes to see as far as you can see. Lift up your plans, expand your ideas. For some of us that will be pre Sunrise, for others of you it will be later on in the morning. You can be present for this shift. In Capricorn, our minds will twitch into gear and choices will be made how to expeditiously make those plans come true! Make notes, get goals down on your calendar!

Let your Wolf come out to play! Take a good bite of life in your New Year!

Mercury Retrograde 2016 Sagittarius Capricorn Astrology Switzerland Switchbacks Furza

Furka Pass, Switzerland, was used as a location in the James Bond film Goldfinger. From Twisted Sifter, LOL!

In some areas switchbacks are a necessity. Retrogrades as we know them astrologically are forward, back, forward. The same degrees are covered three times. They may be in one sign or lap over two signs, the end of one, beginning of the other. This time we have the last two degrees of Fire sign Sagittarius and the first 15, half, of Earth sign Capricorn. Sagittarius is the last fire sign, important for inspiration, purpose. It has the rainbow arc far seeing vision, can be wise; Capricorn is the mountain goat, and together they go!

Gaining ground or getting down! Sagittarius and Capricorn will usually choose up and down switchbacks as they cross country, no fear of heights. Sagittarian long striding legs just want to see what’s up there, see the views! Capricorn shorter legs have the surefooted goatly stamina, love the terrain, the crisp feel of the cool air, a keen sense of achievement, like maybe Everest! Both love a good scramble! Winter sports are grand, and climbing, cycling, skiing!

Each direction and level gives a different view, vantage point. But these are to be observed, incorporated, as we go along. We do get stalled at the 8 day direction change points (retrograde and direct stations), giving us a breather, a time to contemplate, assimilate, gather resolve, refocus. But is isn’t for long. Mercury Retrograde is only one of the simultaneous planetary happenings, and it is swept along, tussled and tumbled, a rolling stone, bumping into others, impelled to share what it has seen and learned. And, of course, it never stopped going forward in the sky anyway! It is a viewpoint that occurs because of the Earth, Mercury, Sun relationship as a faster planet moves past a slower planet. Nor is it unusual, happens 3 to 4 times every year, giving 18% of us Mercury Retrograde in our birth charts – thinkers, fact checkers, sometimes learning difficulties.

Mercury is information matters. What you learn, how you learn, how you communicate. There comes the paperwork and contracts, keypads, computers, cells. Mercury Rx does 180s on you, mixes up appointments, the electronics go fritz, there are often misunderstandings as things change quickly.  Confirm appointments.

The Mercury Retrograde Cycle starts Dec 1. The Retrograde dates are Dec 19 to Jan 8, Christmas and New Year! It finishes the whole cycle Jan 27, 2017. Prepare in advance!

Sagittarius is pretty much a forward moving fire sign, but Capricorn minds the time and makes sensible precautions, does due diligence. Gear and autos are given their maintenance in advance, batteries purchased. They line up experts that may possibly be needed. Timing may be critical before winter storms, so they are mindful of weather reports, choose their itinerary carefully. Consultations are recorded, any changes are dated and initialed. If purchases are made during the Rx cycle Cap gets the warrantee.

Sagittarius is generally pretty confident of choices, but we all know about procrastination when something just doesn’t sit right. Time will tell, and at times, no choice being the choice. Sag matters may be where to move, if to move over the holidays. Those of you with chart factors in the last three degrees of mutable signs Gemini, Virgo, Pisces, or especially Sagittarius, this year, if you can wait, move after Mercury goes forward Jan 8. Have your astrologer do your AstroLocality as soon as you can, and select the best timing for your move. If you must move, get something temporary, wait to get furnishings until it is a more permanent situation. There may also be concerns about where and if to go to school. Stories may change as information is gathered, opinions may morph as we come across better ways. Let it flow.

Capricorn deals with reality. While Mercury is Rx this time you with factors from 0 to 18  in the cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra and especially Capricorn, will likely have the most changes. Capricorn careers may shift – more holiday work, get laid off, or a new job that doesn’t turn out as expected. Stay well rested. Real estate may figure in. If you can’t wait to sell, be sure to use an experienced realtor. You may find yourself given notice to move. Papers about sciences could change, facts repudiated, segments lost. Backup everything as you go! Parental responsibilities, especially of Fathers, may be challenged or mended. Youth or being a senior could be a benefit or cause for concern. People from your past may swing by again. Remember why it didn’t work before, but check in to see if they have new valuable information. Knees, skin and bones need protection, be careful. Breakdowns may happen, the holiday mentals or while traveling. Keep, extra food, water, thermal gear, a space blanket on board.

This rephrasing Mercury brings, keeps our mind working, our attention shifting. Excellent changes and opportunities are possible. Stay alert. It is concurrent with the four outer planet aspects that are happening intensely over only seven days at Christmas time, Dec 24, 26, 28/29, and 31! I’m calling these the Holiday Four, and there is a fifth aspect that is quite close at that same time! See more

Whatever happens, keep the long term in mind, keep an open mind. What may at first appear to be a problem may resolve in an unexpected way that you are grateful for later.
