Happy 2021! See the New Year Astrology Chart!

Significant things have happened all 2020! Dramatic aspects like the Virus, Saturn conjunct Pluto, the Presidency. Saturn and Jupiter are now in Aquarius, the Great Conjunction made – Jupiter conjunct Saturn wowed us! Mars in Aries completely finishes its 2020 five months retrograde cycle Jan 2. The first aspect of 2021 is Jupiter in Aquarius sextile Chiron in Aries.

With high hopes, the United Nations has declared 2021 as the International Year of Peace and Trust, the International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development, and the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables! Many of us will be working hard in behalf of those goals.

This year’s chart is not a Bowl, but a Bucket with a Moon in Leo handle! Leo’s Bucket is emptying both good things and bad, and scooping up more water, nurturing materials. Venus is pushing the group from Sagittarius. Uranus in Taurus leads the group. Moon in Leo makes connections in behalf of the group. S/he is both transmitter of the group’s purpose and scanner, receiver of information needed for their purposes.

We do not have the Capricorn stellium starting the year as we have in the past. Yes, there are three planets in Capricorn, but when one is Mercury, as in this case, it is usually not called a stellium because Mercury is generally with Sun anyway.

Saturn and Jupiter are at 1 and 2 degrees, super early Aquarius. They are walking together in their new shoes. Aquarius is noted for exceptions and unpredictability. Saturn is the agile mountain goat and Jupiter is usually limber and athletic. Saturn may need getting used to wild Aquarian terrain while Jupiter is gleefully rock hopping up the creek! Saturn may prefer a few bridges, but, hey, he doesn’t mind a few challenges. He just doesn’t want to make a fool of himself.

Saturn and Jupiter will both sextile Chiron in Aries and square Uranus in Taurus!

The first aspect of a New Year sets the tone for that year. Jupiter sextile Chiron will help Chiron with new medical protocols and the Vaccine. They will do well in new businesses that have been vetted for chances of success. New business techniques will save money and get more done in less time. Relationships will tend to be formed more for mutual purpose, working together, rather than simple coexistence. Each will want to be inspired by the other and to learn together. These couples may have fewer children, but will deeply care about the children they do have. Education may take on more experiential qualities.

They will both square Uranus, the Aquarian planet, in Taurus. Since they are in Aquarius, that might not be as challenging. But there certainly will be glitches. Jupiter can overwhelm a system or boldly make it bigger. If it is too big too fast, some investors may drop out, fearing a failure would be big failure. Saturn has his hands full trying to manage so much that is fairly flying! He’s not familiar with all the territory and it takes all the trust he can muster to keep faith. He may tap back on the budget to deliberately keep things in control. There need to be reality checks, see if there are returns on the investments.

Both Saturn and Jupiter will make sweeping changes of friendships, business associates, community connections, networks. Saturn has been wanting to let go of ones not dedicated enough, unproductive, not skilled enough for what’s coming as the business alters its directions to fit the new times. He wants to hire the best and get going! Jupiter though generally is friends with all, for the changes we are looking to make, he sees the wisdom in being more focused for purpose. Right now, with Uranus in Taurus, the sign of Earth herself, climate and sustainability factors need immediate tending.

Jupiter sees a great need to teach the possibilities and coach people to have confidence to take on the work, train them in new techniques.

May 13 Jupiter will briefly move into Pisces then return to Aquarius July 28. This peek a boo will show Jupiter what needs doing to prepare for Pisces. Aquarius is humanitarian, a gathering of humans, brothers and sisters. Pisces is a gathering of Souls, Spirits in psychic unity. Part of Aquarius’ effort is help others who can’t help themselves, to uplift them so become helpful participants. At the very worst, Pisces can be a living suicide through addiction. At the very best they are powerful compassionate guides that you can’t fool. They have been there.

Jupiter and Saturn will both again be in AQ when Jupiter retrogrades back into AQ July 28 through Dec 28 2021. Saturn in AQ will regulate electronics ie driverless cars, press research to explore and assist humanitarian efforts, challenge internet problems, make wizard like micro technology! Saturn and Jupiter will build networks, restore communities that have failed. Space ventures will have mixed success. Jupiter travelers will make records traveling the airways. Conveyances of all types will enjoy extraordinary advances. Universities will add super curriculums for advanced learning, exploration of the human mind, the interconnectedness of all life and what we used to think was inanimate! Weather predictions will become uncanny! Yep.

Sun, Mercury and Pluto are strong, keeping us anchored, in Capricorn, Saturn’s sign. Sun lends light and a bright heart. Mercury thinks and searches for all pertinent connections and information on their topic. He is sextile psychic Neptune. His logic and Neptune’s amazing ability with images will open channels for ease of application. They in turn are connected with Moon’s south and north nodes. The Nodes hold the Sag/Gemini axis, plans from long ago brought into use in current times. Might call on previous consultants for snappy advice! In fact, Venus was just with them a few days ago. Bet she would know who to call! Pluto scours for financial support, historical parallels that can be modified for today’s use. He looks for solidly skilled researchers and techs that will shape things right up!

Moon in Leo is like a Mother Moon ~ Father Sun combination! Moon nurtures, brings the good food, sizes up how people feel, what their history and family set with them. Everyone has vulnerabilities and Moon generally senses them right away. Moon may recommend helping, or if there would be danger, to let that person go. Always keep in mind to consider the source. Is Moon just being dramatic for her own purposes, or is she sincere and has a good track record?

Leo is usually generous as possible. Yes, there can be inconsiderate me, me, me times, but even then, the intention may be to help or teach in some way. If your situation needs a little advertising drama, or to talk people over the top to take a chance, he’s your person! They often have vivid personalities and if they believe in your cause, they are with you 100%. Listen to their ideas and give them things to do. Be upfront and clear about what you need. They say Moon is what we have done it past lives, so don’t be surprised it they seem to want to give orders and take over, LOL!

Jupiter sextiles the Galactic Center three times, April, August and December! That means the big guns of the Galaxy are shooting packets of amazing advice, clues, counsel and perspective our way! Jupiter is the go between. Hope his feelers are clean and strong to receive all that! It is his job in good faith to pass it on to us as clearly as possible without his own thoughts clouding the transmission. Jupiter usually doesn’t mind being at the podium, but he may be surprised at what he finds himself saying as it is directly channeled through him on the spot! And these updates will keep happening.

The last aspect of 2021 is Saturn in AQ square Uranus in Taurus Dec 23. It’s an aspect that happens 3 times during 2021. We will be left seriously questioning how well we did. Keep a list of accomplishments, things yet to be done, what we would do differently, who you now need on your team to get that done.  Environmental and sustainable changes are a big topics that take time. It really calls for groups to work with groups, checking in with each other, updating, comparing, sharing frequently.

The most dramatic effect of 2021 is all the aspects being made by Saturn and Jupiter in AQUARIUS, to Uranus the AQ planet, plus Jupiter sextiling the Galactic Center! Aquarius rules the heavens, stars, the Universe! These events, plus some in 2022 are all preparing us for Pluto’s entry into Aquarius March 23, 2023!

2021 has eleven aspects, 7+, 4- and 3 Sign Changes. All the aspects are made by Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius! This is the first time I’m including the Galactic Center because Jupiter is in Aquarius, a galactic sign! Here’s the lineup:

Date      #               Event                       Sign
1.11      –    Jupiter sextile Chiron             AQ
1.17      –    Jupiter square Uranus          AQ
2.9       1   Saturn sextile Chiron               AQ
2.11      –   SIX Planet Aquarian New Moon Stellium – Age of Aquarius?
2.17      1   Saturn square Uranus            AQ
4.22      1   Jupiter sxt Galactic Center  AQ
5.13      1   Jupiter PISCES
6.14      2   Saturn square Uranus            AQ
6.23      2   Saturn sextile Chiron              AQ
7.28      2   Jupiter Aquarius                  AQ
8.20      2   Jupiter sxt Galactic Center  AQ
11.26    3   Saturn sextile Chiron              AQ
12.12    3   Jupiter sxt Galactic Center  AQ
12.23    3   Saturn square Uranus            AQ
12.28    3   Jupiter PISCES

59 Years ago! Some, thinking of the Dec 21 2020 Jupiter Saturn Great Conjunction in Aquarius, are likening this to the 1962 Dawning of the Age of Aquarius! It was dramatically heralded by the Feb 1-5 five day SEVEN planet stellium in Aquarius! The New Moon total solar eclipse at 15 degrees Aquarius was on the 4th! Some are celebrating again with the Feb 9-11 2021 SIX planet air sign Aquarius stellium, New Moon on the 11th at 11:06 AM Pacific. Jupiter conjuncts the Galactic Center three times in 2021! The duration of the Aquarian stellium is shorter, one less planet, but it certainly is apropos considering the upcoming year of Aquarian aspects, then Pluto in AQ 2023! For those who choose to celebrate, consider Dawn of the Feb 11 New Moon to start! See the chart right below.

Mind you, the Ages are long, roughly every 2,150 years. Even 100 years would be a reasonable time frame for a transition from one to another. I think we could easily include both events, and Pluto’s sign change into Aquarius in 2023 as part of the process. Pluto takes 248 years to circuit the zodiac. FYI, the ages are reversed through the signs due to the Precession of Equinoxes. The previous age was Pisces, so would now be backing into the last degrees of Aquarius.

Note that there are so many planets in AQ in the Dawn chart in Santa Barbara CA there isn’t room to put them in the right house/section! Moon, Part of Fortune (Circle with diagonal X) and the Sun (Circle dot) are all, 8 factors, in the 12th section! In Santa Barbara it is a triple Aquarian chart – Ascendant (rising sign), Moon and Sun, the three major points, are all in Aquarius! All the planets are in a very concentrated potent 113 degrees, less than a full 120° trine. See your astrologer to calculate the chart at your location. If you choose to use the New Moon chart, it is at 11:06A Pacific; convert to your time zone and location as needed.

Dawn Feb 11 2021 SIX Planet Aquarian Stellium New Moon Day!

In the background, Chiron semi-sextile Uranus has been in a continuous 3 degree underlying pattern since Nov 2008, continues through 2021, 13 years! 2021 will be the LAST YEAR of the 13 years! Mar 31 and May 3. As the years have gone by, Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. The world is changing right beneath our feet with every breath we take!

Significantly, these are the very two planets Jupiter and Saturn activate this year! All along, their ultimate goal has been to tune them up to assist in Pluto’s transition into Aquarius! Is there a Dr in the house? Yes, we need Chiron to ease the way, help us take care of ourselves and others. Uranus is directing his super knowledge toward a healing form of humanitarian unity in action for all.

Pluto in Aquarius brings 21 years of chaos for better and worse. The worst case scenarios are what used to be movie material… Since that last 248 years ago we now have bombs, climate change, electronic communication, robotics, and a helluva a lot more people on the planet. Water and weather wars are possible. Actually, water wars are already starting. We need to reassess our mandates for leadership – age and both physical and mental health. There are going to be some bumps. Some say, after the kinks are worked out, there will be a ‘Golden Age!’ Make it so.

2022 is a very different year. There are only three aspects the entire year, Feb, April and May, each one different! No second chances. It is so important to get things done, what we can, this year, compared to the 2022 only three. It will be time to maintain and finesse our gains.

Wishing you a superlative New Year!

Taurus/Scorpio Full Halloween BLUE MicroMoon Oct 31!

3 Days before ELECTION!

Scorpio New SuperMoon Nov 14/15!

PRESIDENT chosen!


Taurus/Scorpio Full Halloween BLUE MicroMoon Oct 31!

Saturday Oct 31, Halloween/Samhain, we have a 2nd Full Moon in October called a Blue Moon, a Hunter’s and it is a MicroMoon! It is at 7:49 AM Pacific at 8 Taurus/Scorpio 38.

3 days before ELECTION! SIX months Eight Degree activation, Uranian Wildcard with Moon, Mercury Retrograde! Jupiter conjunct Pluto. Galactic Changes continue unfolding.

Scorpio 2020 Oct 31 Full Hunter's Blue MicroMoon In My Defense TShirt Witch!

Yes! What a perfect day for a Full Moon! Happy Halloween, Samhain, everyone! On a 19 year cycle, it will be the last full moon to fall on Halloween until October 31, 2039! This little Full Moon is the most distant and smallest full moon of the year, called a MicroMoon by some. See EarthSky for viewing details!

2020 Oct, Nov, Dec and 2021 Jan, Feb, Mar NEW Moons are all at 23 degrees, a SIX months sequence! April 2021 is at 22 degrees. The signs are Libra, Scorpio, Sag, Cap AQ and Pisces. Then Aries at 22 in April. All of these will aspect Fixed Stars Arcturus and Spica at 23 Libra!

2020 Oct 31, the 2nd FULL Moon in October is a Blue Moon! It and the Nov, Dec and 2021 [Jan very close], Feb, Mar FULL Moons are all at 8 degrees! The Moon signs are Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo and Libra. 

All these Moons are sequentially resonant to each other! The pre-election mood of the people will be carried along strongly for these next SIX months. Clearly, some of us are significantly more connected to the New and Full Moons of a particular year and time of that year. If these degrees activate factors in your chart closely, let’s say 2 to 3 degrees, you will be activated sequentially by the signs of those months, some more favorably than others. If you have factors at both 23 and 8, ALL the Moons of late 2020 and early 2021 will affect you! Plan out those 6 months with a goal in mind. Be prepared, do things favorable per each Moon Sign per your personal chart! 

The last Jupiter sextile Neptune was Oct 12, and they are still close… Jupiter is now closing on its conjunction with Pluto Nov 12 after the Elections. It is already less than 2°, definitely in full effect!  Jupiter thinks with a big smile, inspires well being and confidence. He can be mightily focused and/or extraordinarily broad minded, checking out all the options! Pluto, Scorpio’s planet is getting a mighty boost. A conjunction is a merger of power. On the negative side, Jupiter can lie, slander, judge harshly and Pluto can cheat and steal with ease. They are smart midnight skulkers is they choose to be. If you spent too much, or circumstances are not to your benefit, kerflop, bankrupt it is. On the good side, Jupiter gives a quick broad overview, easily sees the best Path, has a sense of confidence, guides the way. Pluto can be a LOT of power, love and/or money! Your portfolio may be the best it has ever been.   Capricorn, Jupiter’s current sign, is the builder, carries commitments of tremendous hope, has faith in long term worthy goals. Pay attention to making dreams come true. Work it. Jupiter conjunct Pluto

Capricorn Stellium Jupiter and Pluto with Saturn make a three planet Earth Stellium, a conglomeration of power well managed. We will have these outer planets in Capricorn until Jupiter and Saturn change into Aquarius Dec 16 and 19! Capricorn/Saturn is more conservative, the patriarch, professional, fatherhood, the law, research, building. It is personally wanting to make steadfast commitments, take responsibility, be reliable. Jupiter expands our goals and teaches us how to plan well for the long term, to live for our beliefs. Pluto clears our Path for corporate investment and investing in each other. Pluto empowers us to let go in certain areas, to heal ourselves and others, renew, remediate, renovate. It can be intense and involve extremes.

Mercury retrograde in Libra squares Saturn Sunday Nov 1, showing where the weaknesses are. Some will be depressed while others work hard to make projects succeed after all! This is not the time to give up. Do your best. Succeeding under pressure is a good life skill. Mercury’s Libra skill is to talk with loved ones,coworkers, the public, to help them reconsider their point of view. Libra is a terrific mediator, counselor, helping people see possibilities. They put themselves in the other person’s place, listen, ask thoughtful questions. Surprising change is possible. Confidence is born when fear is dispelled. Fear is a normal part of growing.

The Full Moon itself is enhanced toward change and freedom because it includes Uranus! Scorpio Sun and Taurus Moon are fixed, can be solid in their points of view. However, Scorpio is rarely afraid of taking a peek. Sun lights the way so they can see in the dark and the light! They love solving an intricate mystery or an unsolved problem. Riding strong currents are natural for them. Moon is always on the move through the signs. Though currently landed in Taurus, she actually has a stable spot to do her busybody looking about. She finds beauty and value right at her very feet. The land itself has a primal value. She may be slower here, but once she’s in motion, she is just about unstoppable. You could say Scorpio/Taurus are ‘fixed in their motion! Uranus is the Aquarian planet, also of a fixed sign, but is the ultimate shocking changemaker! Uranus is lightning, earthquakes, evolution, the whole unstoppable humanity! It rules electricity, electronics, computers, cell phones, the Internet, group advocacy, genius! It keeps us informed, we change collectively with the times. Again, a major factor of our continually changing awareness, consciousness is ‘fixed’ in motion! We want change without chaos. OK. 

Moon is whimsical, feminine, psychic, guardian of children, sometimes silly, loves ice cream and cheese and bread – food. Uranus loves what’s strange, ahead of its times, is a splendid and rampant inventor, loves friends. Have a home meeting in the kitchen, invite the Sun! Scorpio enjoys seeing extremes and oddities. While Moon listens to wild card Uranus, Scorpio catches glimpses of how their brainstorming is incredibly productive, and casts about in the corners of his mind for supporters and how much funding is needed. Some of their material, though symbolic at first, will stand the test of time, points to the future. Scorpio can see it now!

Another opposition is Venus opposite Chiron. Venus is in one of her signs Libra. S he ties to Taurus, her other sign. She is feminine, like Mother Moon. In Libra she navigates socially, connecting one to the other. She listens and shares the best each has to offer. Opposite Chiron in Aries, her opposite sign, she is aware of his leadership, how he isn’t so concerned with how everyone feels about him. Chiron knows some are wounded, are in the healing process. He lets them follow when they are ready or they can, only if they want to. She knows some need a nudge, are on the brink, and can follow up with words that help them see they can do it! Quite a team she and Chiron can make.

The Moon’s North Node in Gemini is just about to square Neptune in his own sign Pisces. Gemini has a lot or nothing to say…yet. The North Node is overcoming the past, South Node in Sagittarius. Sag is a teacher anywhere anytime. Gemini is closer, a neighbor, a sibling. The circumstances are entirely different. You live with these people, so what you say and how you say it matters. Even though Gemini is an air sign, accused of being flighty, an airhead, they often love teaching children how to think. Geminis listen then tell your story for you, sometimes an embellished version. You think differently about yourself, encouraged to try for more! Neptune and Pisces work less with the mind, but even in a different dimension. Sound, silence, dreams, instinct, a sense of presence. It calls for an encompassing awareness, compassion, helpfulness, a sense of what is needed most. Gemini is clever, but is being clever what is needed? Is it the right time and place to say those things? Is it apropos to that person? Is it kind? Just because you are not thinking, are you ‘stupid?’ And how about Pisces…is it too limiting not to be able to tell others what you dream of? How will they know you? It may be awkward to speak at first. You may need a little guidance from a chatterbox! It’s a quick way to learn, no? You can learn together.  

You will hear me talking about the Galactic Center!
In the remaining 2020 lunar charts, the Galactic Center is aspected every time! Since the charts are sequential by sign, refresh and update at each one. In the Mars/Mercury double retrograde, they both aspect the GC three times! Mars in Aries as already trined Aug 28 and Sep 21, the first and last days of the Mars retrograde station! Dec 31, the last day of 2020, Mars makes the last trine and is trine at the last lunar chart of 2020 Dec 29! This is 2020’s special gift to 2021! Mercury sextiles the GC Sep 24, Oct 30 and Nov 7. The Mercury in Libra 30th and 7th define Mercury’s direct station dates! The Galactic connections while the planets are in stations are significant because the stations are ‘stand still’ times that allow the information to be absorbed, sorted, focused on, anchored in our consciousness. This specific timing is extraordinary! Mars is spurred to divine action; Mercury thinks about it and gives him the best ideas how and what to do! While in Libra, Mercury sets Mars up with a fresh set of liaisons. The ideas may be rather new ideas too, but Mars loves new, so off he goes, learning along the way! Exciting and satisfying!

The Galactic Center is now at 27° Sagittarius 08. A lot of astrologers allow a 2 degree range because the GC is huge! Factors in your chart 25 to 28 will be activated by this profound point your whole life. Relative to Earth it moves a degree every 72 years. Here are some excerpts about the GC:

  • Kim at Galactic Center Astrology: Some say it’s an opportunity to ‘download’ new information, divinely inspired insights from higher guidance. Others say it opens the subconscious mind and lets us release blocks and limiting beliefs.
  • Phil Sedgwick is less poetic: [The GC] blasts open the root chakra in the energy system. This chakra releases the old, regenerates our energy, and lifts us off our duffs with renewed inspiration and a sense of real progress.” And: “The Galactic Center acts like a satellite dish, directing divinely inspired information straight to the potentially receptive gray matter of our brains. If you believe in God, this might be the voice you hear. Regardless, within this connection you have the ability to pull down wild information which you would otherwise have no way of knowing.”
  • Paul O. Hewit writes: “it is probably the second strongest spot in any astrology chart, following the Sun. It is a stunning source of energy, motivation, and aspiration. The Galactic Center is the Sun of our Sun. It is the source of most of the gravitational energy present in our galaxy, and probably the source of most of the energy in any chart, transformed through our own Sun.” [Some say the GC IS the strongest factor in our charts!]

The Mercury square Saturn is tied with the Galactic Center!

Mercury retrograde in Libra has just sextiled the GC. His tank has been filled. The GC in Sagittarius has purposes, long term plans that he expects Mercury to spread out in every direction among the people. Mercury in Libra has instinct about which people will keep spreading that good news. He can soothe the edges, talk them through to an understanding that will help them represent the plans accurately. Saturn is in Capricorn, the sign after Sagittarius, wanting to put some of these new larger visions to work, determining the right timing. Saturn is ambitious and can build magnificently, stabilizing profound options for a long time to come.

Chiron and Uranus

Sun and Moon at 8 degrees are both tied with Chiron at 5 Aries and Uranus at 8 Taurus! Mother Moon has just semi-sextiled Chiron, inspired by Chiron’s demand for new healing techniques! In Taurus, Moon is helping Uranus make Earth changes, change many old standards of humanity, work for freedom at the most organic levels in new ways. Sun in Scorpio reaches out to others who need this special information, to adjust their finances, insurances, wills, health services. There are some terrific ideas for new businesses after the virus, the many protests, fires and floods. Business will be conducted in money saving new ways. Our relationship with land and water will be mitigated, remediated to better conditions than we had before. Renovation, going back to the status quo, is no longer enough. Rights of all kinds are being revised.

These are times to make connections with people who can help us. Moon is opting for reliable partners that can change with the times. Sun would like deeply dedicated new friends. Uranus is Spock brilliant across the table. He is triggering Scorpio’s curiosity about life itself, especially matters of clean waters! Uranian visionary ideas are shared as whole bodies of knowledge. Uranus is a profound contributor. Chiron is quick to dart in to unkink the works when there is a block! It’s an uncanny experience for them all!

Chiron in Aries and Uranus in Taurus are in neighboring signs! They have been semisextile 13 years, their last aspects in 2021! Chiron is sizzling in fiery Aries, a good business person as well as a healer/teacher, terrific consultant! In this combination a promotional organization would suit his Spirit! Supporting new students, think tanks, getting groups started! Avant-garde ideas, exotic explorations on land or in the lab, unique sports, research for new cures, looking for leaders! All would be exciting ventures! They have been closely together in the background…in a small but potent aspect.

Sweeping change is often started with chaos and discomfort, takes extra effort to initiate. This is our chance to step up for things that will introduce new possibilities. Uranus in Taurus is working for stable global union. Taurus is Earth herself, her lands, indigenous peoples that inhabit them, the Standing Tree People, Stone People, the Four Leggeds, all. Uranus is working for planetary freedom for all beings. Networking is key and Uranus rules electronics, computers, cells, social media as well as planes. All are important means to connect valuably with each other. Friendships open gateways. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus

Thank you, Dear Scorpios, for giving so deeply; to you Tauruses for keeping us steady.

Scorpio New SuperMoon!

Saturday Nov 14 at 9:07 PM Pacific, 23 Scorpio 18. It is on Nov 15 in Eastern time US at 12:07 AM.

PRESIDENT chosen! SIX months of New Moons at 23 degrees activate Three Fixed Stars: Arcturus and Spica, Algol! Mercury and Mars are DIRECT. Saturn in a 1 MINUTE aspect with the Galactic Center! We are headed to the Great Conjunction on Winter Solstice.

Scorpio New Moon 2020 Nasa image of Milky Way-Volcano, Guatemala Acatenango

The Milky Way and Volcán de Fuego, an active stratovolcano in Guatemala near Antigua. Fabulous image by Diego Rizzo. Sometimes it’s hard to decide which is more impressive — the land or the sky. 

This New Moon concludes a ‘season’ of three new SuperMoons – September 17, October 16, and November 14/15, 2020! See EarthSky for viewing details! 

2020 Oct, Nov, Dec and 2021 Jan, Feb, Mar NEW Moons are all at 23 degrees, a SIX months sequence! April 2021 is at 22 degrees. The signs are Libra, Scorpio, Sag, Cap AQ and Pisces. Then Aries at 22 in April. All of these will aspect Fixed Stars Arcturus and Spica at 23 Libra!

Fixed Stars ~ Spica and Arcturus, Algol

All of these New Moons will aspect TWO lucky fixed stars! This New Moon is semi-sextile Arcturus, now at 24 Libra 30, and Spica at 24 Libra 06! The stars must be read together. Spica is Virgo maiden girly and prim compared with Arcturus in the constellation Boötes, the herdsman. She is in the palace; he is not, yet both are workers! They do not sit together in the sky. Spica is -11 while Arcturus is +19 high above the ecliptic! 

Spica is considered especially lucky and blessed. She lives in a difficult place that is called the Via Combusta, a ‘dry’ path from 15 degrees Libra to 15 degrees Scorpio, but Spica is the oasis. She is one of the 15 Behenian Fixed Stars, a selection of fifteen stars considered especially useful for magical applications in the medieval astrology of Europe and the Arab world. Spica is noted for spiritual and religious qualities, honors and fame, artistic skill, drawing ability, musical talent and a good sense for literature and the sciences. There can be refinement, a noble bearing, sublimation of sexual tensions. See more at Astrology King

Arcturus, another Behenian Star, moves things along and keeps order! He’s really a go-ahead enterprising spirit. Humble he is not! He has great pride, is grandly liberal, commanding, has cosmopolitan views. Arcturus gives riches, honors, high renown, self-determination and prosperity by navigation and voyages. You can see how Spica and Arcturus can complement each other and learn both finesse and boldness from each other!

If these stars are not well connected with your planets or others in the sky with them, yes, there can be troubles. In this case, Pluto and Jupiter are currently square them. In Capricorn there can be dishonor, discover of past transgressions. Pluto goes to extremes and Jupiter goes for the maximum. There may be financial ripples… You may have paid a significant debt or incurred one. Some relationships may be on the block needing a decision. Your career may be at a critical point. What about retirement? Health is needing attention. If they are lucky and dodged the bullets Jupiter predicted, they can break old rigid patterns and succeed against the odds. The situation may call for a lot of discretion, playing your cards close to the chest. Use Spica’s finesse and Arcturus’s bluff!

Saturn is still closely trine fixed star Algol, the baddest Star according to some! Algol is at 26 Taurus 26 in 2020. It is a rare triple star and eclipsing binary, which means it blinks, and changes brightness, even ‘disappears!’ It is the Medusa’s Head, carried in the left hand of the Hero, Perseus. On the dark side, ‘It causes misfortune, violence, decapitation, hanging, electrocution and mob violence, and gives a dogged and violent nature that causes death to the native or others. It is the most evil star in the heavens.’ Some say it’s not the ‘bad’ within us but pushing through blockages to the beauty beyond is what really matters. We can face our demons with sincere intent and life changes for the better! See more!

One hopes the trine, good aspect, has bent the relationship with Algol to a more satisfactory outcome. Earth signs are a bit ‘indelible.’ Their effects are more long lasting. Keep turning the tables on Algol’s bad rep. Stay calm in the face of violence, shift your connections so better can happen. Know your rights and choose safety unless you are trying to save someone’s life. If you are the offender, get all the help you can to change. Many a fine leader has come from a dark place. 

Even if there is ‘bad,’ Saturn, the one in charge, can handle it well even when he isn’t up to par himself! He knows about struggles and hard work. If he is standing well, he can be of great help. He is realistic, gathers the 4X4s, builds the shelter you need, takes responsibility with you to face any and all demons. He is clever, resourceful and sticks to his business when the going gets tough. With Pluto, he knows a demon when he sees one and has the power and instinct to fight back and remove it! Scorpio is Pluto’s sign, so instinctively aligns precisely to assist. 

Sun and Moon are both coming to opposition with Algol. They will have a personal encounter. Moon, of past lives, has been here before and it still gives her pause. She feels the danger. In Scorpio she wonders if they are like they used to be. She knows the faces of demons and knows they generally wither away when you show your face of strength. Sun, at her side, is a bright light in a dark sign, as smart as any demon and with the light to rout them, and Taurus demons think they were meant to stay! They can stay, but now you know where they live. You can move on! If bad bites you, bite back. It’s a language they understand. And keep on doing your own business. Knowing where the pitfalls are is a definite advantage.

No matter what, many give Algol a wide berth, plan wisely astrologically. Astrologers often allow 5 degrees for it’s effective range while most stars get only 1 degree range. If in neighboring signs, only 3 or less degrees would be used. If you have chart factors in that 5 degree range, one way or another you are connected with Algol. If you have questions, do see your astrologer.

Three Outer Planets Stellium

We continue on with our three outer planets stellium in Capricorn – Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. Jupiter has turned forward and is again strongly activating Pluto and Saturn during the Mars/Mercury Retrograde Presidential Elections Nov 3. The final Jupiter conjunct Pluto was just after the Elections Nov 12, Mars going direct, forward the Nov 13, Scorpio New Moon the 14/15th now! Jupiter conjunct Pluto will brought up hidden truths, made extreme exaggerations, is still teaching, harming and healing. There will be bankruptcies and billions made! 

2020 has been quite a year! Pluto brought the Virus and Jupiter is prejudice, but also outing the truth of the violence of racial injustice. Pluto in Capricorn is the Police, both good and bad, and hired killers. Jupiter often exaggerates conditions in initial situations not much is known about. We keep learning as different perspectives are considered. In Capricorn historical situations and what other governments have done can be profitably compared. Tradition is being reassessed. Old icons are tumbled. Jupiter in Capricorn looks for what works better at less cost. Sustainability is a strong factor now due to environmental concerns. Time to make a clean sweep and build much, much better. If you have the means, do what you can to help survivors, heal the environment long term, provide significant education. Keep your life clean or Jupiter in Capricorn the law, Pluto the Police, will be knocking on your door. There will be more change when Saturn then Jupiter go into Aquarius in December.

We have been seeing amazing caring and people stepping up to the plate. You see this aspect, Jupiter conjunct Pluto, has a great range, extremes. And both can happen at once. Apply for help if you need it. Sometimes we just can’t do it all alone. One day you will be the one that’s doing the giving. Bless you and keep you. When you can, pay it forward.

We are on our way to Jupiter conjunct Saturn Dec 21! There is a special name for that, it is called the Great Conjunction! Jupiter Saturn meet up about every 20 years, so that isn’t uncommon. BUT! This one in Aquarius hasn’t happened in this sign since 1405! We are on our way to another amazing adventure!

Mars DIRECT in his own sign Aries Nov 13, Scorpio New Moon Nov 14/15

It may be good to collaborate with Mars. It happens that Mars, the planet of new beginnings is in his own sign Aries! Retrograde or not, he is always on his game, seeing the possibilities, leading the pack! Mars in his own sign has twice the punch, is quick on his feet, adapts instantly. He likes new but is a little tempery with delay. Yet he intuitively senses it’s a necessary part of the dance and gets on with his part. He is reminded about the great need for independence yet also how we are all a part of the great evolution together. Careful about clonking your head on something or it on you, cuts, stings, pushing too hard and being injured. Be careful on your bike when you take that detour or a new route. No matter what, you are always a winner! Spirit is with you!

So Mars has been in his Direct Station since Nov 1, will be until Nov 26, ThanksGiving! He is in a super focused period, absorbing, anchoring, strengthening. With his turn forward, his very nature to move forward, it will be a tough wait for him, yet ironically he sees progress even when he is standing still! Every two years we get to experience how waiting can save us from ourselves and the craziness of others, how the right timing makes a difference. Hone your skills, get your support team ready, have things strongly in place for your launch. Do weights. Run in place.

The final stretch starts with the 13th and importantly with the New Moon! Aries and Scorpio are both fighters. Aries is an up front, literally front runner, leader, leader of leaders! Scorpio does the infighting, like martial arts and money – boycotting, burgling, banning! Both can be personal – Aries in your face, Scorpio hand to hand, sometimes life and death.

Mars looks like he will square Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn, but he’s moving slowly coming out of retrograde, Saturn and Jupiter go into Aquarius before he can square them. He does square slower moving Pluto the third time Dec 23, at Christmas time. That can be quite a challenge. Mars may be tempting the gods by barking at Pluto when Pluto doesn’t want his position known. I would advise caution and choose your enemies carefully. If you want to play with old Pluto, he may favor you for your bravery and sheer audacity, but if he doesn’t… There can be a beef about money, rightful relationships, malpractice, wrongful death/injury. Be transparent, well documented, do your best. Don’t let the holidays lull you into indiscreet disclosure. Even Pluto can get scared, hide in ways that don’t look like hiding, even forgets he’s hiding. Mars invites change, we gain confidence,  get excited to move on. It may take Mars, in the potency of his own sign Aries, with his sword, the Sword of Attila, also called the Sword of Mars or Sword of God, to cut him loose. Free. Finally. Mars must dance very carefully or the scorpion, snake or Eagle could grab him. Good luck to you both.

Mars will sextile the North Node in Gemini that is retrograding back to him. The North Node is a place of learning/balancing for us. The South node, a place of talents, is opposite in Sagittarius trine Mars. Sag gives perspective, hope, good will. Gemini is  chatter that keeps us thinking and alert. Mars will use the information he gains now in his later encounter with Pluto. Sometimes Pluto is pretty serious, especially in Capricorn and dose of Gemini/Sag can get you out of tight spots. Just start telling your story, why you are here, what your intentions are, your hopes. Air out the closet! 

Venus in Libra will soften the Capricorn planets. Venus is in a dangerous but probably delightful dance with Pluto on the 15th, both at 22°! She is a beauty and he doesn’t know whether to succumb or run for his life. Few can catch him, but she could. But he is dark; she is light. He knows to catch her in his web might not be kind in the long run. She, rarely refused, may be a bit dashed. Or, if they are meant to play it out, he can teach her about subtle causes and differences, financial realities. She may be a jewel in his crown, the light in his day, soften his judgments regardless the ‘offense.’ She may bring him insight of potential balances. She squares Jupiter the 15th too. She is social and Jupiter loves a good frolic, when he’s not working. He can be exceptionally hardworking in Capricorn, and may need some time out. She is a tempting companion. She may cause him to question why he has chosen that work and whether it pleases his spirit or have things changed with him. Her square with Saturn, the planet of Capricorn comes the 19th. Again, the question about choice of work, it is is valuable to all or is his dedication wavering? All three of these squares have to do with relationships. With Jupiter it is matters of truth and plans for the future, is your partner like a teacher, helping you to become bolder? With Saturn it is whether the relationship is timely, if age difference matters, is your potential partner like your Father and is that ok? Venus has a quick time span, about three days, but to three planets in a row in the same sign it is a more enduring encounter, from Friday the 13th to Friday the 20th.

Mercury is Direct now making 2 final aspects of his Retrograde cycle in Libra and Scorpio!

Nov 15 Mercury in Scorpio inconjunct Chiron in Aries is considering a new route. Mercury is logical and Scorpio can be a shamanic healer. Mercury can explain the depth and source of the troubles to the patient, client, friend, and ask more questions, until there is resolution and resolve. Chiron in Aries suggests new ventures to take the place of illness or misadventure. Mercury is logical and Scorpio knows where the direct spot is that makes the difference. Scorpio knows about death and the trail of tears a person’s actions can lead to. Chiron at times is rather merciless and knows when it’s time for immediate change or else. Besides, why wait when you can have a better life right now?!    

Nov 17 Mercury is opposite Uranus in Taurus is adding a little spice! Uranus is a smart guy, but Scorpio wants to see what he is really made of! So he says a few provocative things. Uranus is not always socially adept and may at first take the words at face value. And Taurus is patient, even kind. But I wouldn’t push too far. Uranus, computer expert, in Taurus can lull you to think you are safe, then you get the shock of your life. He just moved your accounts to his Cayman account. Not funny. You may have to change your name. Choose your financial advisors carefully.    

Uranus, though now settled in Taurus, seems slow, is still the planet of electricity and Scorpio is water. Tampering with the sleeping giant can have consequences. If Mercury is the journalist the risk may be worth it if Uranus has been misbehaving. Mercury may make a fundraising request. He may broach some new ideas for remediation that would appeal to the solid land man. Some unique research may be discussed. Give it at try. If it hasn’t worked before, try again now. Mercury may have made an adjustment to your presentation and the new information you have may make the perfect difference. Collaboration could be remarkable!

Still, Chiron in Aries semisextile Uranus in Taurus are in neighboring signs!

Chiron and Uranus have been semisextile 13 years, their last aspects in 2021! Chiron is sizzling in fiery Aries, a good business person as well as a healer/teacher, terrific consultant! In this combination a promotional organization would suit his Spirit! Supporting new students, think tanks, getting groups started! Avant-garde ideas, exotic explorations on land or in the lab, unique sports, research for new cures, looking for leaders! All would be exciting ventures! They have been closely together in the background…a small but potent aspect.

Sweeping change is often started with chaos and discomfort. This is our chance to step up for things that will introduce new possibilities. Uranus in Taurus is working for stable global union. Taurus is Earth herself, her lands, indigenous peoples that inhabit them, the Standing Tree People, Stone People, the Four Leggeds, all. Uranus is working for planetary freedom for all beings. Networking is key and Uranus rules electronics, computers, cells, social media as well as planes. All are important means to connect valuably with each other. Friendships open gateways. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus

Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius 08!

ONE MINUTE of space! Saturn, at 27 Cap 07, is the only planet connected with the GC this New Moon, in a 1 minute semi-sextile!. Like with the Full Moon, Saturn is neighborly in Capricorn, the next sign, wanting to put some of these new larger visions to work, determining the right timing. Saturn is ambitious and can build magnificently, stabilizing profound options for a long time to come. Saturn moves slowly, will be in its humble connection with the GC through Nov 27.

Even this small link is important because in the remaining 2020 lunar charts, the Galactic Center is aspected every time! Since the charts are sequential by sign, refresh and update at each one. In the Mars/Mercury double retrograde, they both aspect the GC three times! Mars in Aries trines Aug 28 and Sep 21, the first and last days of the Mars retrograde station! Dec 31, the last day of 2020, Mars makes the last trine and is trine at the last lunar chart of 2020 Dec 29! This is 2020’s special gift to 2021! Mercury sextiled the GC Sep 24, Oct 30 and Nov 7. The Mercury in Libra Oct 30th and Nov 7th define Mercury’s direct station dates! The Galactic connections while the planets are in stations are significant because the stations are ‘stand still’ times that allow the information to be absorbed, focused on, sorted, anchored deeply in our consciousness. This specific timing is extraordinary! Mars is spurred to divine action; Mercury thinks about it and gives him the best ideas how and what to do! In Scorpio, Mercury sets Mars up with deep insights that get him to the heart of the matter. The ideas may be rather challenging, but Mars loves new challenges, so off he goes, learning along the way! Exciting and satisfying!

Scorpio Moon meets Sun, turns out the light to see the magical dark, the stars and space. She folds him into her arms, the sky blanket over them. They breathe together, heal deeply, share stories, laugh, have sadness, love each other, make plans.  

Have a deep dark and glorious New SuperMoon! We are so blessed by your sharing.

Aries/Libra Full Harvest Moon Oct 1!

Capricorn & Aries Stelliums! Sun and Moon with Chiron and Uranus! Galactic Changes unfolding. Intensity!

Libra New SuperMoon Oct 16!

Three Fixed Stars: Arcturus and Spica, Algol! SIX Planet Cardinal T Square to Capricorn! Closing in on the Nov 3 Election. So much to do!


Aries/Libra Full Harvest Moon!

Thursday Oct 1 Full Harvest Moon at 2:05 PM Pacific, 9 Aries/Libra 08

Capricorn & Aries Stelliums! Sun and Moon with Chiron and Uranus! Galactic Changes unfolding.

Sunset Full Moon! Indigenous Teepees by Canadian photographer wwing

2020 Oct, Nov, Dec and 2021 Jan, Feb, Mar NEW Moons are all at 23 degrees, a SIX months sequence! April 2021 is at 22 degrees. The signs are Libra, Scorpio, Sag, Cap AQ and Pisces. Then Aries at 22 in April. All of these will aspect Fixed Stars Arcturus and Spica at 23 Libra!

2020 Oct 31, the 2ndFULL Moon in October is a Blue Moon! This Full Moon is at 9 degrees. The Oct 31 Full Moon and the Nov, Dec and 2021 [Jan very close], Feb, Mar FULL Moons are all at 8 degrees! The signs are Aries Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo and Libra. 

All these Moons are sequentially resonant to each other! Clearly, some of us are significantly more connected to the New and Full Moons of a particular year and time of that year. If these degrees activate factors in your chart closely, let’s say 2 to 3 degrees, you will be activated sequentially by the signs of those months, some more favorably than others. If you have factors at both 23 and 8, ALL the Moons of late 2020 and early 2021 will affect you! Plan out those 6 months with a goal in mind. Be prepared, do things favorable per each Moon Sign per your personal chart! 

Aries is the sign of rights fighters and Libra tries to establish justice, make peace. This is a Harvest Moon. We are trying not only to harvests crops, but to right wrongs that have left a bitter taste. Libra has a gifted way with establishing a more fair and equal balance.

The primary aspect now is Jupiter sextile Neptune. It will remain close through Oct 12 and a little beyond. Jupiter thinks with a big smile, inspires well being and confidence. He can be mightily focused and/or extraordinarily broad minded, checking out all the options! Neptune in its own magical sign Pisces, has dreams beyond ordinary perception. Sextiles indicate opportunities, potential. Capricorn, Jupiter’s current sign, is the builder, carries commitments of tremendous hope, has faith in long term worthy goals. Pay attention to making dreams come true. 

Capricorn and Aries Stelliums

There are the three outer planets Capricorn Stellium and a four planets Aries Stellium! We will have the outer planets in Capricorn until Jupiter and Saturn change into Aquarius Dec 16 and 19! Capricorn/Saturn is more conservative, the patriarch, professional, fatherhood, the law, research, building. It is personally wanting to make steadfast commitments, take responsibility, be reliable. Jupiter expands our goals and teaches us how to plan well for the long term, to live for our beliefs. Pluto clears our Path for corporate investment and investing in each other. Pluto empowers us to let go in certain areas, to heal ourselves and others, renew, remediate, renovate. It can be intense and involve extremes.

Aries challenges Capricorn. It is true that Capricorn rules experienced elders, but they can get rigidly stuck in old ways. Aries are leaders, seeking new ways, inspire us to update. Chiron is the healer, teacher, sharing us to physical action, to integrate current and new business techniques, add more leaders in our relationships and seek more equitable life partners. Mother Moon is more like Father Moon in Fire Sign Aries! She is impatient and heads up new ventures, teaches her children to assess for themselves, to try new ideas, learn from experience! Her children can be heroes with instant life saving intuition. Mars is in his very own sign, the spark of Life, the daily New Dawn! He is athletic, not a stay at home person. He has an undaunted Spirit, no fear to take on the powers that be. Lord knows they need to wake up! It takes courage to be the underdog, to be threatened by them, even when he acts for their own good! For now, while he is retrograde, he is more tenacious than usual! If his work isn’t enough, throw in Black Moon Lilith! She will happily add her fierce feminine powers to the fray! Some battles are so worthy. 

THE challenge aspects that are the classic core of these two stelliums, are the 22-25° Mars retrograde/Lilith square Saturn/Pluto! Capricorn is an old sign, the 10th of the Zodiac, aged, established and respectable. But Aries is the First Zodiac sign of leadership and initiation. He is not always respectful, sometimes abrupt, but always wanting what’s best and better now! Just because they may be rude doesn’t mean they aren’t right. Take it easy and take a listen! Tell them you are thinking on it and you will get back to them. Have a second chat. Thank them and see if they have any more advice. They aren’t likely to stick around, so be ready to implement what you learn on your own. Consult with them time to time if they are around or can be reached.

We are so fortunate to have Sun in Libra to help with negotiations, see the other person’s point of view. Libra widens our zone, range of perception, gives a percentage improvement of opportunities! Sun brings the Light to possible collaboration, partnerships, both business and pleasure! Differences can turn to blessings. Put your heart into social ventures that help you make new types of connections, even with seeming opposition. It is often surprising how just a few words sort things out and we find ourselves working together. Libra has a certain grace of blending our lives with a touch of beauty. Aries contributes champion athletic prowess, a powerful beautiful body, designs amazing bicycles and transportation. Libra is the fine arts – ballet, orchestras, paintings, poetry, photography, floral beauty! But most of all, is the art of relationships. Cross cultural integration, equality of rights – human, animal and environmental. These talents will be especially important to Chiron and the Moon opposite the Sun! In Aries, they will be fiery, fanning each other’s flames, while the Sun has a cool fall breeze that can listen, negotiate what is to be done, and restore peace. 

The Moon’s North Node in Gemini is just about to inconjunct Pluto, both at 22 degrees. Gemini can help with  communications. Pluto has secrets yet may want some information to become public. It may be ‘leaked’ or given to Gemini with the caveat of anonymity. If Gemini doesn’t comply with the request for privacy, there could be hell to pay. Or GE may discover information dangerous to know, yet imperative to share. It could be that Gemini sorts out a lighter way to share it, suggests resolutions that makes it become a turning point for change and the source could be exonerated.  

Mercury is the earliest degree planet at 4, in Scorpio, Pluto’s sign. There is an adjustment between Mercury and Chiron in Aries. Both are fighters – Aries is up front trying to save your life right now. Mercury in Scorpio is concerned about your attitude. Need to let go of deep fears, hate, theft, manipulation, thinking ‘bad’ thoughts. Scorpio tries to clear your health from the roots of long term disease, remove toxins. It is not an easy task, sometimes scary facing up. But it can be done. Scorpio is the Phoenix rising from its own ashes. Clearing ourselves becomes a life technique. We can use it to heal others, physically, emotionally and psychically as we ourselves have done. Chiron is inspiring us to breakthrough and use new ideas to advantage. 

Mercury will be opposite Uranus in Taurus exact on Oct 7, 1:55 PM Pacific. There will be a week of contemplation. In these fixed signs, we are somewhat loathe to give up what we have always thought, yet Uranus is the planet of surprises, evolution, awakening, change, freedom. Taurus can be patient and steady, calm and natural while the changes are swirling in the cauldron of progress. Mercury in Scorpio is ever alert, mindful and ultra aware of subtle signals and meaning. We will be taking on what’s different and none too soon! We can be quite opposed to some opinions or happenings we see going on. We might separate from friends we no longer trust. We can hope for changes we hoped for long ago. Both are likely. We may be surprised how some join forces, collaborate against the odds. Options may arise that we never expected that change the whole journey!  

You will hear me talking about the Galactic Center!

In the remaining 2020 lunar charts, the Galactic Center is aspected every time! Since the charts are sequential by sign, refresh and update at each one. In the Mars/Mercury double retrograde, they both aspect the GC three times! Mars in Aries as already trined Aug 28 and Sep 21, the first and last days of the Mars retrograde station! Dec 31, the last day of 2020, Mars makes the last trine and is trine at the last lunar chart of 2020 Dec 29! This is 2020’s special gift to 2021! Mercury sextiles the GC Sep 24, Oct 30 and Nov 7. The Mercury in Libra 30th and 7th define Mercury’s direct station dates! The Galactic connections while the planets are in stations are significant because the stations are ‘stand still’ times that allow the information to be absorbed, sorted, focused on, anchored in our consciousness. This specific timing is extraordinary! Mars is spurred to divine action; Mercury thinks about it and gives him the best ideas how and what to do! While in Libra, Mercury sets Mars up with a fresh set of liaisons. The ideas may be rather new ideas too, but Mars loves new, so off he goes, learning along the way! Exciting and satisfying!

The Galactic Center is now at 27° Sagittarius 08. A lot of astrologers allow a 2 degree range because the GC is huge! Factors in your chart 25 to 28 will be activated by this profound point your whole life. Relative to Earth it moves a degree every 72 years. Here are some excerpts about the GC:

  • Kim at Galactic Center Astrology: Some say it’s an opportunity to ‘download’ new information, divinely inspired insights from higher guidance. Others say it opens the subconscious mind and lets us release blocks and limiting beliefs.
  • Phil Sedgwick is less poetic: [The GC] blasts open the root chakra in the energy system. This chakra releases the old, regenerates our energy, and lifts us off our duffs with renewed inspiration and a sense of real progress.” And: “The Galactic Center acts like a satellite dish, directing divinely inspired information straight to the potentially receptive gray matter of our brains. If you believe in God, this might be the voice you hear. Regardless, within this connection you have the ability to pull down wild information which you would otherwise have no way of knowing.”
  • Paul O. Hewit writes: “it is probably the second strongest spot in any astrology chart, following the Sun. It is a stunning source of energy, motivation, and aspiration. The Galactic Center is the Sun of our Sun. It is the source of most of the gravitational energy present in our galaxy, and probably the source of most of the energy in any chart, transformed through our own Sun.” [Some say the GC IS the strongest factor in our charts!]

Venus and Saturn are tied with the Galactic Center!

  • Venus in Leo has just trined the GC. She is now expressing the Light of the messages. Usually we think of Venus in Leo as thinking pretty much of herself, just being pretty, but in this case she has a bigger message, universal! She is with the blessingway of working with values of the Heart, her specialty. It is time to appreciate each other’s special contributions, no matter how humble or grand.  
  • Saturn is in Capricorn, the sign after Sagittarius, wanting to put some of these new larger visions to work, determining the right timing. Saturn is ambitious and can build magnificently, stabilizing profound options for a long time to come.

Chiron and Uranus

Sun and Moon at 9 degrees are both tied with Chiron at 7 Aries and Uranus at 10 Taurus! Mother Moon has just passed Chiron, inspired by Chiron’s demand for new healing techniques! In Taurus, Uranus is making lots of Earth changes, changing many old standards of humanity, working for freedom at the most organic levels in new ways. Sun in Libra reaches out to others who need this special information. There are some terrific ideas for new businesses after the virus, the many protests, fires and floods. Business will be conducted in money saving new ways. Our relationship with land and water will be mitigated, remediated to better conditions than we had before. Renovation, going back to the status quo, is no longer enough. Rights of all kinds are being revised.

These are times to do projects, make connections with people who can help us. Sun would like to be new friends. Uranus is Spock brilliant, off to the side, triggering Libra’s astute curiosity! Visionary ideas are shared as whole bodies of knowledge. Uranus is a profound contributor. Chiron is quick to dart in to unkink the works when there is a block! It’s an uncanny experience for them all!

Chiron in Aries and Uranus in Taurus are in neighboring signs! They have been semisextile 13 years, their last aspects in 2021! Chiron is sizzling in fiery Aries, a good business person as well as a healer/teacher, terrific consultant! In this combination a promotional organization would suit his Spirit! Supporting new students, think tanks, getting groups started! Avant-garde ideas, exotic explorations on land or in the lab, unique sports, research for new cures, looking for leaders! All would be exciting ventures! They have been closely together in the background…in a small but potent aspect.

Sweeping change is often started with chaos and discomfort, takes extra effort to initiate. This is our chance to step up for things that will introduce new possibilities. Uranus in Taurus is working for stable global union. Taurus is Earth herself, her lands, indigenous peoples that inhabit them, the Standing Tree People, Stone People, the Four Leggeds, all. Uranus is working for planetary freedom for all beings. Networking is key and Uranus rules electronics, computers, cells, social media as well as planes. All are important means to connect valuably with each other. Friendships open gateways. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus

Libra New SuperMoon!

Friday Oct 16 at 12:31 PM Pacific, 23 Libra 53

Three Fixed Stars: Arcturus and Spica, Algol! Three Outer Planets Stellium, SIX Planet Cardinal T Square to Capricorn! Closing in on the Nov 3 Election. So much to do!

Libra 2020 New Supernoon Stars & Star Watchers Mr Jake

Fine Star Watching on a dark New SuperMoon night! Splendid hand drawing by Mr Jake!

2020 Oct, Nov, Dec and 2021 Jan, Feb, Mar New Moons are all at 23 degrees, a SIX months sequence! April 2021 is at 22 degrees. The signs are Libra, Scorpio, Sag, Cap AQ and Pisces. Then Aries at 22 in April.

Fixed Stars ~ Spica and Arcturus, Algol

All of these New Moons will aspect TWO lucky fixed stars! This New Moon is blessed to be AT, conjunct, Arcturus, now at 24 Libra 30, and Spica at 24 Libra 06! The stars must be read together. Spica is Virgo maiden girly and prim compared with Arcturus in the constellation Boötes herdsman. She is in the palace; he is not, yet both are workers! They do not sit together in the sky. Spica is -11 while Arcturus is +19 high above! 

Spica is considered especially lucky and blessed. She lives in a difficult place that is called the Via Combusta, a ‘dry’ path from 15 degrees Libra to 15 degrees Scorpio, but Spica is the oasis. – where the New Moon is at! She is one of the 15 Behenian Fixed Stars, a selection of fifteen stars considered especially useful for magical applications in the medieval astrology of Europe and the Arab world. Spica is noted for spiritual and religious qualities, honors and fame, artistic skill, drawing ability, musical talent and a good sense for literature and the sciences. There can be refinement, a noble bearing, sublimation of sexual tensions. See more at Astrology King

Arcturus, another Behenian Star, moves things along and keeps order! He’s really go-ahead and enterprising spirit. Humble he is not! He has great pride, is grandly liberal, commanding, has cosmopolitan views. Arcturus gives riches, honors, high renown, self-determination and prosperity by navigation and voyages. You can see how Spica and Arcturus can complement each other and learn both finesse and boldness from each other!

If these stars are not well connected with your planets or others in the sky with them, yes, there can be troubles. In this case, though the stars are boosting the qualities of the New Moon, they are also, along with the New Moon, in squares with Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn. Pluto has already taken some money. You may have paid a significant debt or incurred one. Some relationships may be on the block needing a decision. Your career may be at a critical point. What about retirement? Health is needing attention, at least this last week. Might be one of those times to check in with your astrologer if your chart is connected. 

Saturn continues trine fixed star Algol, the baddest Star according to some! Algol is at 26 Taurus 26 in 2020. It is a rare triple star and eclipsing binary, which means it blinks, and changes brightness, even ‘disappears!’ It is the Medusa’s Head, carried in the left hand of the Hero, Perseus. On the dark side, ‘It causes misfortune, violence, decapitation, hanging, electrocution and mob violence, and gives a dogged and violent nature that causes death to the native or others. It is the most evil star in the heavens.’ Some say it’s not the ‘bad’ within us but pushing through blockages to the beauty beyond is what really matters. We can face our demons with sincere intent and life changes for the better! See more!

One hopes the trine, good aspect, will bend the relationship with Algol to a more satisfactory outcome. Earth signs are a bit ‘indelible.’ Their effects are more long lasting. Turn the tables on Algol’s bad rep. Stay calm in the face of violence, shift your connections so better can happen. Know your rights and choose safety unless you are trying to save someone’s life. If you are the offender, get all the help you can to change. Many a fine leader has come from a dark place. Libra and Saturn/Capricorn are pros at knowledgeable  advice. 

Even if there is ‘bad,’ Saturn, the one in charge, can handle it well even when he isn’t up to par himself! He knows about struggles and hard work. If he is standing well, he can be of great help. He is realistic, gathers the 4X4s, builds the shelter you need, takes responsibility with you to face any and all demons. He is clever, resourceful and sticks to his business when the going gets tough. With Pluto, he knows a demon when he sees one and has the power and instinct to fight back and remove it! Libra can be a crack fighter with super moves right at your side if you need help.

No matter what, many give Algol a wide berth, plan wisely astrologically. Astrologers often allow 5 degrees for it’s effective range while most stars get only 1 degree range. If in neighboring signs, only 3 or less degrees would be used. If you have chart factors in that 5 degree range, one way or another you are connected with Algol. If you have questions, do see your astrologer.

SuperMoons Sequence

To make it all a bit more intense, we have a “season” of 3 NEW SuperMoons September 17, October 16, and November 15, 2020. See EarthSky for viewing details! A supermoon is a full moon or a new moon that nearly coincides with perigee—the closest that the Moon comes to the Earth in its elliptic orbit—resulting in a slightly larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as viewed from Earth. The technical name is a perigee syzygy (of the Earth–Moon–Sun system) or a full (or new) Moon around perigee.

The second of these new moon supermoons, on October 16, 2020, will present the closest new supermoon of 2020. It will be more closely aligned with lunar perigee – the moon’s closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit – than any other new moon in 2020.The closest new moon of the year (like the year’s closest full moon) will cause larger-than-usual perigean spring tides. They typically follow the supermoon by a day or two.

Mars

Mars is Retrograde Sep 9 to Nov 13.
 As some planets are moving forward, the retrograde planets are collectively reviewing their previous works. The beauty of Rx patterns is they are S shaped, forward, back, forward, but it happens while time moves forward, the other planets have moved. Each direction change we see from a new vantage point. We go deeper. Nothing is really ever the same again even though planets cover the same degrees three times! We get three chances! Clever that. Saturated, empowered, we change, gain confidence, get excited to move on, especially Mars!

The New Moon just passed opposition Mars having gotten a super charge from the dynamo himself! Sun was opposite the 13th, the day Mercury went retrograde. Sun was either intrigued or felt blasted. Libra can hold his own in a courtroom, so Mars may have seemed just another opposite. Moon opposed Mars only hours before at 6:49 AM Pacific. There may have been some temper flares, but it showed action needing to be taken too. Less, or get a new, social life. Start that new project! Exercise! Today, the New Moon, there may be some indications of results. 

It may be good to collaborate with Mars. It happens that Mars, the planet of new beginnings is in his own sign Aries! Retrograde or not, he is always on his game, seeing the possibilities, leading the pack! Mars in his own sign has twice the punch, is quick on his feet, adapts instantly. He likes new but is a little tempery with delay. Yet he intuitively senses it’s a necessary part of the dance and gets on with his part. He is reminded about the great need for independence yet also how we are all a part of the great evolution together. Careful about clonking your head on something or it on you, cuts, stings, pushing too hard and being injured. Be careful on your bike when you take that detour or a new route. No matter what, you are always a winner! Spirit is with you!

Three Outer Planets Stellium, SIX Planet Cardinal T Square to Capricorn! 

We continue on with our three outer planets stellium in Capricorn – Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. Jupiter is spurred on by Venus, has finished his sextile with Neptune Oct 12, so is dispersing what he learned along magical Neptunian venues. Jupiter has turned forward and is again strongly activating Pluto and Saturn during the Mercury Retrograde Presidential Elections Nov 3. The final Jupiter conjunct Pluto just after the Elections Nov 12, Mars going direct, forward the Nov 13, Scorpio New Moon the 14th! Jupiter conjunct Pluto will bring up hidden truths, make extreme exaggerations, there will be teaching, harming and healing, be bankruptcies and billions made! 

2020 has been quite a year! Pluto brought the Virus and Jupiter is prejudice, but also outing the truth of the violence of racial injustice. Pluto in Capricorn is the Police, both good and bad, and hired killers. Jupiter often exaggerates conditions in initial situations not much is known about. We keep learning as different perspectives are considered. In Capricorn historical situations and what other governments have done can be profitably compared. Tradition is being reassessed. Old icons are tumbled. Jupiter looks for what works better at less cost. Sustainability is a strong factor now due to environmental concerns. Time to make a clean sweep and build much, much better. If you have the means, do what you can to help survivors, heal the environment long term, provide significant education. Keep your life clean or Jupiter in Capricorn the law, Pluto the Police, will be knocking on your door.

We have been seeing amazing caring and people stepping up to the plate. You see this aspect has a great range, extremes. And both can happen at once. Apply for help if you need it. Sometimes we just can’t do it all alone. One day you will be the one that’s doing the giving. Bless you and keep you. When you can, pay it forward.

We are on our way to Jupiter conjunct Saturn Dec 21! There is a special name for that, it is called the Great Conjunction! Jupiter Saturn meet up about every 20 years, so that isn’t uncommon. BUT! This one in Aquarius hasn’t happened in this sign since 1405! We are on our way to another amazing adventure!

New Moon SIX Planet T Square

This huge T Square culminates with the New Moon. A lot can happen and it won’t be snap of the fingers when the New Moon is over because the slow moving outer planets carry the information on to make better as they go along. Libra will bring relationship matters, business and legal  concerns, choices that need to be made to rebalance your life. Mars on the other side is wanting fresh starts, initiative, exercising your rights! Mars is retrograde going back while Jupiter is now coming forward to meet him! They are both feisty fire planets. Jupiter is bigger and has the law on his side; Mars is nervier and rarely backs down! David and Goliath. But Mars is on the leading edge, and Jupiter is always intrigued by new and different! They could work it out just fine and put it in the plans. Jupiter is coming up to kiss Pluto, another fighter! Only Pluto has the money aka funding. Pluto’s well is deep and his roots of power are deep. If anyone can change him, though, it’s likely to be Jupiter, who somehow often holds lucky cards, and has money making ideas just about everyone wishes for! Jupiter can make you laugh while spending all your money! Saturn is a lot less likely to be changed by a smile. You have to prove yourself. But if you pass Pluto’s gate you will likely be accepted. 

Helping this SIX planet T Square

Venus in Virgo is really enjoying getting up close to his trine with Jupiter! Jupiter is a gallant lad, debonair in his Capricorn suit! She admires his award winning work; he inspires her to redouble her efforts and expand her range of talents, maybe go to a specialty school, travel when she can – seminars, conferences. Maybe you will have met at a conference! She may arrange Jupiter’s itinerary for him and do some bookkeeping and organizing while she goes by. Venus brings the flowers and quality food. If you need some temp help for the next few days, do it! 

Venus is also super caringly tuned in opposite Neptune. She may get more of a feeling than a precise assessment, or so precise everyone is amazed! Neptune is at times in addictions status, other times on the caregiving side, sometimes confused, usually empathetic, always magical! Venus goes for the Grace and kindness when possible. Helping someone look better, making sure you get that shower. They help you care for your house, mediating a difficult situation, finding peace and balance. Virgo is a god gifted helper. Venus in Virgo is blessed with knowing what herbs and foods are natural helpers and that help you sleep well  too. 

Still, Chiron in Aries semisextile Uranus in Taurus are in neighboring signs!

Right now, Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio opposite Uranus in Taurus is adding a little spice! Mercury has come back for another look now through the 19th. He was here on Oct 7 and will be again Nov 17. Got to admit, Mercury in Scorpio has seen a lot, some of it dangerous. Uranus, though now settled in Taurus, seems slow, is still the planet of electricity and Scorpio is water. Tampering with the sleeping giant could have consequences. They sense when someone comes near their counting house. If Mercury is the journalist the risk may be worth it. Mercury may make a fundraising request. He may broach some new ideas for remediation that would appeal to the solid land man. Some unique research may be discussed. Give it at try. If it doesn’t work now, try again around Mid November. Mercury being retrograde this time may require an adjustment to your presentation and a wait for new information.

Chiron and Uranus have been semisextile 13 years, their last aspects in 2021! Chiron is sizzling in fiery Aries, a good business person as well as a healer/teacher, terrific consultant! In this combination a promotional organization would suit his Spirit! Supporting new students, think tanks, getting groups started! Avant-garde ideas, exotic explorations on land or in the lab, unique sports, research for new cures, looking for leaders! All would be exciting ventures! They have been closely together in the background…a small but potent aspect.

Sweeping change is often started with chaos and discomfort. This is our chance to step up for things that will introduce new possibilities. Uranus in Taurus is working for stable global union. Taurus is Earth herself, her lands, indigenous peoples that inhabit them, the Standing Tree People, Stone People, the Four Leggeds, all. Uranus is working for planetary freedom for all beings. Networking is key and Uranus rules electronics, computers, cells, social media as well as planes. All are important means to connect valuably with each other. Friendships open gateways. Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more about Chiron/Uranus

Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius 08!

Saturn is the only planet connected with the GC this New Moon. Like with the Full Moon, Saturn is neighborly in Capricorn, the next sign, wanting to put some of these new larger visions to work, determining the right timing. Saturn is ambitious and can build magnificently, stabilizing profound options for a long time to come. Saturn moves slowly, will be in its humble connection with the GC through Nov 27.

Even this small link is important because in the remaining 2020 lunar charts, the Galactic Center is aspected every time! Since the charts are sequential by sign, refresh and update at each one. In the Mars/Mercury double retrograde, they both aspect the GC three times! Mars in Aries trines Aug 28 and Sep 21, the first and last days of the Mars retrograde station! Dec 31, the last day of 2020, Mars makes the last trine and is trine at the last lunar chart of 2020 Dec 29! This is 2020’s special gift to 2021! Mercury sextiles the GC Sep 24, Oct 30 and Nov 7. The Mercury in Libra Oct 30th and Nov 7th define Mercury’s direct station dates! The Galactic connections while the planets are in stations are significant because the stations are ‘stand still’ times that allow the information to be absorbed, focused on, sorted, anchored deeply in our consciousness. This specific timing is extraordinary! Mars is spurred to divine action; Mercury thinks about it and gives him the best ideas how and what to do! In Libra, Mercury sets Mars up with a fresh set of liaisons. The ideas may be rather new ideas too, but Mars loves new, so off he goes, learning along the way! Exciting and satisfying!

Libra Moon meets Sun, turns out the light to see the magical dark, the stars and space. She folds him into her arms, the sky blanket over them. They breathe together, share stories, laugh, have sadness, love each other, make plans.

Have a very dear New SuperMoon! We are so blessed by your sharing.

2020 New Year AstroLogical Chart!

Happy New Year to you all!


Leap Year 2020 holds the Tokyo Summer Olympics,
 NASA’s Mars 2020 mission to study the habitability of Mars, US Presidential Election. Please VOTE! 100 years ago on August 18, 1920, Congress ratified the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, making women’s suffrage national law.

2020 New Year’s Day’s Bowl chart starts the year with a FIVE planet Capricorn Stellium that is part of the longest stellium of 2020! It starts Nov 25 2019, completes Mar 30 2020. It includes Jupiter changing signs into Capricorn, Winter Solstice, the Holidays, 2 Eclipses, 20 days of 5 planets in Capricorn, Mercury in Aquarius/Pisces Retrograde, the fateful Jan 12 SATURN CONJUNCT PLUTO! It’s a FOUR MONTHS journey. See the Stellium details!  Bowl & Bundle Charts!

New Year’s Day Chart! Mercury is with Jupiter! Many extensive confident conversations planning the future. Could be while traveling, meeting with people of different cultures. Lots of news! Four days ago Sun poured golden Light into Jupiter and Jupiter is still aglow, inspired! Sun got some ideas to carry forward, and the Light has just gotten bigger and better for it! Saturn is less than a degree away from its conjunction with Pluto. They have travelled together much of 2019; at last they will merge. Saturn wants to harness Pluto’s extraordinary energy. Saturn in his own sign Capricorn is the most potent in 29 years! Pluto is formidable, can be dangerous, but they are basically harmonious planets. However, if the Kundalini Pluto Dragon rises, back up and wait respectfully! On the other hand, Saturn is backed by the citizens, and if there has been misuse of power, funds, Pluto may find himself in bankruptcy or jail. Along with powerful opportunities, this combo can be major sorrow. Saturn and Pluto can both be significant endings and loss of life. This planetary combination is serious, happens on average every 34 years. Mars is in Pluto’s sign Scorpio. They are in harmony with each other. If Mars feels threatened he may rise up with serious intent to defend! If there are rights to be fought for, he can do the job without blinking an eye! If a darkness needs to be exposed, he can do that too with fearless courage.

Neptune is in his own sign Pisces, along with Moon in Pisces, a water sign. Water is sensitive, intuitive, often compassionate. Pisces is lover of music and meditation, but can be the tsunami of feelings when endangered or working a cause to save us. Mother Moon will protect her children, also save you when she can, and in Pisces, give you seaweed soup to cure what ails you! Chiron is dancing around, fresh in Aries, excited to be in these record breaking times, taking on leadership expeditions as they become available. New healing techniques may be discovered! Uranus in Taurus, the last planet in this chart grouping, is unpredictable! Uranus loves shocking you. Taurus is dependable forever, except with this planet, LOL! You take your chances! But, one way or the other, Uranus wants humanity to work together in behalf of Earth herself. Venus is in Uranus’s sign Aquarius, has lots of contacts! She is sweetening the pot, maybe getting friends and funding, setting up networking, social media, for Uranus’s projects. She can magically help people see why the project is so valuable to our futures, why the research is so necessary. They make a good team.

2020 opens with four outer planets in Cardinal signs: Chiron in Aries plus Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. Cardinal signs initiate. Aries is the spark, a leader. Capricorn instinctively builds the shelter, protects the gathering. We are inspired to act, to raise up. Saturn is in Capricorn, was in its own sign all of 2019. In 2020 it will go back and forth, Capricorn to Aquarius. Neptune is in Mutable sign Pisces. Mutable flexibility brings Grace. Things are not so hard and fast. Systems can change, yet there is no compromising what’s Sacred. It seems at times there is no direction, but somehow everyone arrives at the same time! Neptune, sign of Spirit, blends and binds us meaningfully, with every fiber, to a greater purpose, more significantly than of any one of us alone. As for Chiron in Aries, he will never stand still! Front man Aries tests and tastes what’s new! Uranus in Taurus shows us the importance of our bodies, and the Earth. Many Uranian changes will be stabilized as Taurus takes hold, steadies and anchors them. Work for the higher good on a long term basis.

Saturn and Neptune, outer planets, in different elements, are in their own signs until Saturn enters Aquarius Mar 21! He retrogrades back into Capricorn July 1 through Dec 16. Saturn in earth and Neptune water! Each stands strong, expert of their place, holding a purity of that planet and sign. Their experiences are intensified! Saturn, the master builder, works steadfastly to make the very best, long worked for, come true in the most efficient manner possible for potent useful results. Neptune, the dreamer, artist, spiritualist, synchronizes all the levels of effort and existence. He sees the times to come, adjusts finer points to fluidly facilitate that time. He holds our spirits to a soulful compassionate outlook. Our efforts aren’t for ourselves alone, but also for creating a unity of all kinds of Beings – humans, the standing tree people, the 4 footeds, the stone people (Capricorn) and land, the great sky beings (Aquarius lightning, clouds and stars), in all the waters, seen and unseen, and more.

There are two sign changes in 2020Saturn as written above. In Capricorn he maintains solidarity, takes responsibility for giving support, builds for future generations. He is sometimes pessimistic, but usually passes the test, getting wiser and stronger as he ages. Jupiter spends the majority of 2020 also in CapricornHe successfully builds your team, the chalet/sports lodge, big city complexes, official installations! Materials may be gathered from all over the world, and the best is used in design. There is an air of welcoming to all who come. In time, indigenous lands, plants, animals may be more protected. As Saturn makes his final shift into Aquarius Dec 16, Jupiter follows 3 days later Dec 19! They will both then be in Aquarius until Jupiter joins Neptune in Pisces May 13 2021. Jupiter and Saturn will both again be in AQ when Jupiter retrogrades back into AQ July 28 through Dec 28 2021. Saturn in AQ will regulate electronics ie driverless cars, press research to explore and assist humanitarian efforts, challenge internet problems, make wizard like micro technology! Saturn and Jupiter will build networks, restore communities that have failed. Space ventures will have mixed success. Jupiter travelers will make records traveling the airways. Conveyances of all types will enjoy extraordinary advances. Universities will add super curriculums for advanced learning, exploration of the human mind, the interconnectedness of all life and what we used to think was inanimate! Weather predictions will become uncanny! Yep.

Planet of the Year is Pluto! Saturn makes the famous conjunction with Pluto Jan 12. Jupiter makes three conjunctions with Pluto, Apr 4 to the retrograde June 29, Nov 12 the last! Jupiter and Pluto are, at most, only just over 2 degrees apart from Mar 18 to Jul 21! That’s four solid months of dedicated steadfast work together! Jupiter with Pluto can bring excessive extremes. If that is through investments or corporate money we love it! But if the money is mistakenly optimistically invested, we can lose all. Relationships can be painful, we could lose a mate or be cheated on, or as a pair you could become famous, travel forever together and get paid for it! You could hit the last of those nine lives, or have miraculous healing! You could learn some things you wish you hadn’t, or hypnotize your students with knowledge of the unknown, your charisma well documented! The Nov 12 Jupiter conjunction that concludes the aspects to Pluto of the year, is at 22 Cap 51, the same degree as the Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto at 22 Cap 46, only 5′ of space apart! This conjunction follows the Presidential Election by 9 days, is THE aspect of the Election! What was up back on Jan 12 will be up then too. Circumstances may be much improved, as Jupiter is famous to do, or issues that were ‘bad’ may be exaggerated and much worse. Keyword is ‘much.’

The first aspect of a New Year sets the tone for that year, and the famed Saturn conjunct Pluto is the one, on Jan 12! It has been forming for months, many discussions about the matters afoot. Money, power. Environment. Human rights. Lies versus reality. What should we do? There is pressure about timing – too little too late? Many extraordinary heroes/heroines have stepped up! From many cultures, of many incomes – billionaires to disadvantaged, anonymous to famous, men, women, even children! Since this aspect started well before January 2020, a culmination may happen around this January time, symbolized by an event within 3 days before or after Jan 12.

In the background, Jupiter sextiles Neptune much less dramatically three times in 2020 – Feb 20, Jul 27 and Oct 12. Last year Jupiter squared Neptune. There were lies and exaggeration, major denial, much to worry about, runaway imagination. Many were forced to pray again and again to stay steady and keep the big, long term picture in mind, not forget there are always heroes and heroines that appear in the darkest times. We upped our game and more of us stood up to do our part. Though that part may seem so small to hardly make a difference, collectively it adds up. It became reason to do it because it is simple truth to live for in each of ourselves for simple self respect whether anyone else knows or not. The sextile will offer opportunities. We can learn and teach, give more. It will be easier; we can relax more and see more clearly. In a way, the worst of that part is over. Be your own hero/heroine! Stop using that one use plastic. We don’t have to wait for a law to do that, or wait for a group to gather to plant trees. Do it now! Look to see alternatives others are doing. Keep inspiring others by sharing your discoveries, successes.

The last aspect of 2020 is Jupiter conjunct Saturn in AQUARIUS on Winter Solstice Dec 21! Old Father Winter, Saturn, is being cheered up by sassy Jupiter. Jupiter breezes in, tells Christmas sagas, tells ridiculous jokes and doesn’t care if you are laughing at him or them! He’s a clever one telling parables and stories with morals. He brings news of where he has been and we all learn. That boy doesn’t stay around long though! He breezes in and blows out! Gotta see what’s next somewhere else! You will miss his big smile and all those ideas, perspectives on life and the bigger than life business ideas as well. Instead of one place, do a franchise! Go back to school and become an electronic expert – computers, vehicles. Get into winter sports! Set up a research station. Have a travel or import/export business if you love the world at large but might not want to travel. How about a bed and breakfast?! Become a ranger in a national park. Gather a world network and run an environmental nonprofit. Get your teaching/coaching credentials! After the holidays you will go back to school and change your major, again, LOL! Keep on until you get there! Keep adding those skills – they will ALL be used!

The most dramatic event of 2018, that started a long chain of events, was the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto/Ecliptic crossing at 18 Capricorn 58. The most dramatic events of 2019 were the Nov 11 TRANSIT OF MERCURY at 18 Scorpio 56 and Nov 19 Jupiter conjunct the GALACTIC CENTER 27 Sag 07!!! They virtually happened together! Mercury crosses the Sun on average 13 times a century. The June 16 and 18 Jupiter/Saturn to Neptune activations were at 18 Sagittarius/Capricorn 43! ALL but one of these events were at the same degree, 18! You with chart factors at 17, 18, 19 were totally connected, especially those of you with your factors in any of these three signs – Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn!

2020 wraps up the sequence! First is that Jan 12 Saturn conjunct Pluto discussed above. March 21 is The Crown!  Next are the two Jupiter conjunctions with Pluto further livening old Pluto up from his secret hiding place. Then there is the Nov 3 Presidential Election followed by the last Jupiter conjunct Pluto 9 days later. What an amazing sequence of events! They will be thought about for years to come. Our lives just won’t be the same, but better!

As in 2019, 2020 has eight aspects. 3+, 1-,  4+/-. That’s not a lot of aspects, but five are potent conjunctions, planets exactly together. Here is the year’s lineup:

Date       #              Event
Jan 12   –  Saturn conjunct Pluto once
Feb 20    1  Jupiter sextile Neptune
Mar 21   –  The Crown! once
Apr 4      1  Jupiter conjunct Pluto
Jun 29    2  Jupiter conjunct Pluto
Jul 27     2  Jupiter sextile Neptune
Oct 12    3  Jupiter sextile Neptune
Nov 3    –  Presidential Election
Nov 12  3 Jupiter conjunct Pluto
Dec 21   –  Jupiter conjunct Saturn once

In the background, Chiron semi-sextile Uranus has been in a continuous 3 degree underlying pattern since Nov 2008, continues through 2021, 13 years! 2020 has two exact aspects, the day after Valentine’s Feb 15, and June 10. 2021 will be the LAST YEAR of the 13 years! Mar 31 and May 3. As the years have gone by, Uranus is becoming more Shamanic. Chiron is acquiring a more humanistic range of healing and teaching. See more

Taurus New Moon!

Saturday May 4 at 3:46 PM Pacific, 14 Taurus 11!

Three in Taurus, three in Aries Bowl, Sextiles, Neptune Midpoint, Stars! 

Taurus 2019 New Moon Milky Way Green AirGlow Isle of Wright Chad Powers

The Milky Way and green airglow are captured over the Isle of Wight in this image taken by Chad Powell on Oct. 4, 2013.   

As I have said before, New Moons are a regenerative time. Moon is at the end of her 27 day cycle. She has been through all the signs, gathering information, giving as she can as she has gone along. She makes lots of adjustments, each sign so different and specialized. She takes the pulse of the people from all walks of life. When she meets Sun, he sees what she has accumulated – awareness of accomplishments, shortcomings, needs that need meeting. Sun floods her with Light energy and she is recharged for her next cycle. He appreciates her perceptiveness and caring and is himself restored by her faith in him. 

This is a good time to make assessments, put things into perspective. Keep these things in mind as you face challenges. The outcome  may surprise everyone! In Taurus, we assess our body, our attractiveness, what we want, our basic human rights, our relationship with our planet, ownership of our actions to get the job done. 

Bowl chart with three in Taurus, three in Aries! 

All the planets in this chart are in less than half the chart! This is called a Bowl chart ~ it collects, ponders and pours. Jupiter, the first planet, has had us in training, learning more about learning. Mars, our Aries planet, leads the way, spreading the good word in Gemini, but now it is opposite Jupiter, firing up Jupiter’s synapses with startling and exciting new information. Those old opinions are being challenged and updated! Jupiter may feel a bit taunted, but loves learning, and usually gives in to the bigger truth of things. Our last New Moon the emphasis was Pisces/Aries. This one has three planets in Aries and three in Taurus! The beginnings have been made and Taurus intends to anchor, stabilize production, refine the process. Collect your dreams, hold them consciously. Keep them right where you can touch them, close to your heart. Spread the good word.

Sextiles of Opportunity in mixed companionable elements! See all those green lines?!

In fire and air, Venus to Mars! Love at first sight! They are chatting while they dance, the moves are quick and graceful. Champions! They both may try to lead, LOL! Venus gives her blessings in an instant. She is leading the frame, choosing in a moment. Though she gave you the eye, don’t mistake that she is independent, creative and resourceful. She makes beauty wherever she goes; it’s like having a magic wand! Mars can match her steps and that is rare, so delightful that he can keep up, even surpass her! He has words; he hums while he moves. His rhythm is impeccable; his breath is with the wind. Venus is the budding flower in brilliant white or red, a rose of pink. In the world of the day, they have fond connections, connections with artists and movers, world leaders of all kinds. They share all the stories, perform with spiritual zest! They scintillate! There is a sweet scent as they pass by. New beginnings are blessed.

Mars does have a serious component in his periphery. Perhaps that makes him more formidable than one thinks at first glance. He is linked with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. That makes Gemini look pale, but he presents Gemini first. If he finds out there is deception, a web of imprisonment, an unhonorable chronic history, he will move on. He notes the susceptibility of curiosity, but he knows if he gets caught he might not get away in time. Careful. He learns to be a bit more cautious and be careful where he flirts. Due to a wrinkle in energy, he may almost inadvertently become aware of a wise being who may tell him of certain requirements he must experience to temper his Soul. It’s a test not everyone opts to take or passes even if they do. Do your best.

In Earth and Water, Neptune at the sextile midpoint between Saturn and the New Moon!
  • Saturn sextile Neptune is special, part of the big planetary combination that started with Pluto at the Ecliptic, 18° Capricorn, Oct 20, 2018! Jupiter and Saturn both will make exact aspects with Neptune June 16 and 18 at 18° Pisces. 18 Pisces sextiles that 18 Capricorn! Jupiter updates Neptune’s dreams of the millennium, teaches new methods of advocacy. A bigger Truth now prevails. Evolution’s work is ever in the making. Saturn builds an easy to follow, well defined Pathway of substance, makes sure the gears are running smoothly. Saturn pays attention to the structural integrity of the dream’s current condition and strengthens as needed. There may be some delays, but the delays will make for long term substantial gain.

  • Moon and Sun are potently trining Saturn as well as also making the sextile to Neptune! Moon and Saturn know each other well. Each is preserving elemental integrity, building a strong home base, taking care of elders, the kids and generations to come. Both are relatively conservative, as they should be considering their jobs, but they always help when they can. Sun and Saturn get along well. Sun praises, gives energy, and lights the way when Saturn faces his toughest challenges. Saturn has his doubtful moments, but rarely abandons his Soul’s commitments. 

    You might think by closeness this would also lead to Pluto since Saturn is so close to Pluto, but not so much. Sextiles are not given so much leeway by most astrologers as that long 11° between Moon/Sun and Pluto, and Saturn is retrograding away from Pluto faster than Pluto is retrograde. Yes, their conjunction is in the offing, they have been within sniffing distance, taking measure of what’s to come, giving fair warning of the necessities that will follow. It will be Saturn’s job to bring the dangerous Pluto extremist into a more workable current collaboration in a timely fashion. Yet sometimes it takes holding the extreme condition to get people to see exactly what the time frame is, like with climate conditions. The old guard money machines aren’t going to hold all that melting water. Time to find new ways to capitalize for the futures of our children. Private parties and businesses are stepping in, taking care of reality. And they are the ones who have funded government in the past. Now they are doing the business of the planet. That’s bigger.

    Moon and Neptune are both so intuitive. Mama Moon sees Neptune’s deepest wishes. She sees the cycles they are flowing in, variations that are coming. Neptune sees not just Moon’s own family, but the family of humanity. He sees her cycles within the grand cycles. He tunes her up and she believes what he shows her. She knows her daily work is symbolic of the macrocosm. She cleans, hugs the hurts, feeds, supports and sometimes leads as a woman of substance in behalf of her people. Keeping her people strong is essential. She helps people feel their way along, understand each other’s differences. As she changes, so will they. 

    Sun heartens Neptune to stand up rightfully in his unique insights. Take that song with those lyrics to center stage. Music has always been a way of speaking. As we listen, dance to it, we take it in. We become it without realizing. There is a complicit agreement, resonance. We can be profoundly influenced. As we might be doing yoga at the beach, or sitting in meditation with other Souls of great intention. The Sun makes us aware of our own radiance and the seed of the dream we have held within starts to grow…
Three Semi-Sextiles!

Continuing abiding Aspect: Chiron & Uranus continue in their 13 years long journey closely together in the background… In Taurus’ coming year they are exact twice in their new signs Aries/Taurus – June 30, 2019 and at Valentine’s time, Feb 15, 2020!  See more about Chiron/Uranus 

Jupiter retrograde in Sagittarius is semi-sextile Pluto in Capricorn! Jupiter is UP and Pluto and Capricorn are considered to be down dirty and sensible, realistic! If you take it all too seriously, get burdened with obsessive commitments you can’t humanly keep, get tired beyond measure, then runaway with Jupiter! Jupiter does have big plans, but there are often detours, trips, fun, funny! It’s not what you do but how you do it! Plenty of time outs, diversions so you don’t lose it, being silly and ridiculous just for the heck of it, stretching your muscles and spirit! Go Surfing in New Zealand, get in an outdoor run, some yoga, sign up for the samba class you always wanted, get some private tutoring! Make noise, yodel! See what I mean, Jellybean?! Now. If Jupiter is just not getting things done, on time or ever, it might be time to be reminded of the consequences of going too far that direction! Divvy up the task into small bites; start with something just to get a start. If possible, never sign up for something you didn’t want to do in the first place. But if it is a chance as a step to something more better, give yourself a time limit and give it a go! Either way, Jupiter or Pluto, take good care of yourself. 

For this New Moon, Venus is leading old Neptune on! She has whispered with him before when they are in Pisces together, but now she is calling to him to catch up! She’s pretty, perky, agile, dodges bullets, starts fires, is spirited in the most attractive way! He can’t help but long to put some of his visions in her hands and wish to be close with her again. She’s pushing for change, now, and he may be embarrassed once in a while at her shenanigans, but even if she makes a mistake, she has record recovery time! Progress! She still comes by to listen to him, seek his guidance and inspire her with new ideas. He may not look to exciting, but don’t underestimate his tempests! Formidable if he is displeased. Be ready to roll!

Venus is also at a T Square midpoint to Saturn and the Moon’s Nodes! They are in Cardinal signs: Saturn in practical earthy Capricorn, Venus in fire breathing Aries, the Nodes spanning Cancer/Capricorn – Saturn at the South Node. There is a Fateful component. Saturn, Capricorn and the South Node, are related to our past. The family reputation, karmic consequences good or bad, old age, archaeology, meaningful past lives. Cardinal signs are always getting things rolling. Cancer takes care of the home and family, Capricorn builds both shelter, and community connections, and knows what’s done is done, let go, rebuild. Aries is the first responder, leader of merit, gets the troops inspired with new ideas! This leader could be a woman, perhaps may lack credibility, but she certainly gives it a go. She may prove to be right or with excellent input, makes quick adjustments and it comes out better than anyone expected! Her auspicious sextile with Aries planet Mars in Gemini assures everyone will hear about the project, sending her information she needs minute by minute, further leading her to make thrilling daring moves! What a dance! 

There was another T Square, Jupiter and Mars to Neptune, but it has fizzled since Jupiter and Mars have gone beyond Neptune’s degree now. Yet, Neptune remains felt as the midpoint of the entire chart! What has potency now, however, is Mars opposite Jupiter! Fireworks! Mars is a fire sign, Jupiter a fire planet in his own sign, fiery Sagittarius! Mars in airy Gemini might spread himself a little thin, living on air instead of food, but he’s having a great time of it as Jupiter feeds him data from all other the world. Pushy Mars may want to act before Jupiter thinks things are ready. They may go head to head, differences of opinion, Mars willing to take on the giants, Jupiter outspoken and not known for tact all the time. But fire and air are quick and smart, get through it just about as fast as it started! Mars likes being independent, and might be frustrated when Jupiter takes off one of the few times Mars needs support. Jupiter may find Mars isn’t as impressed with his grand ideas as his students are. For Mars he’s used to taking on big ideas because he has plenty of his own. Jupiter may underestimate Mars. But Mars is 10 times faster than anyone else, so Jupiter sees such amazing progress he’s challenged to keep up with Mars! All’s forgiven.

The 3 STARS dance continues! Each time since the October New Moon, all the New Moons since being at 15°, the same stars have been activated but by different types of links! This earthy 14° Taurus New Moon makes a blessed sextile with the renowned Fixed Star Sirius at 14 Cancer! Sirius is the Dogstar in Canis Major, the brightest star in the heavens. It is said to give honor, renown, wealth, ardor, faithfulness, devotion, passion and resentment, and makes its natives custodians, curators and guardians. It also gives danger of dog bites! Woof! Taurus and Cancer make sure everyone is comfy and fed well. Taurus steadies Cancer. Cancer listens and doesn’t rush Taurus. She knows when to get back to her business and let him think some more.

Moon and Sun are trine Sirius’s opposite star Vega at 15 Capricorn.  Moon is born to music and Vega is Lyra’s bright star. She puts beauty, music and arts in our lives. They make ballads and lullabies. Taurus has a lovely voice that soothes humans and animals alike. Taurus love being hands on, makes stunning ceramics, sculptings. They sculpt their own bodies with weight training or weight loss programs. This is so brief about the stars. Look up more online about their histories, lore, data! Go to spiritual sites for deeper discussions.  

Again, not only is the Dogstar involved, but so is the hunter himself! Venus in Aries has just sextiled Orion’s star Rigel at 16 Gemini. Aries likes weapons and Orion is the hunter. Works for her. You might guess Rigel has mixed reviews. Mythologically it was thought to be where the scorpion stung Orion causing Orion’s death. Oops. About Rigel and Venus, Robson says: Honors or favors in middle life, good and influential marriage especially if female. About Mars (Aries), he says ‘Unruly, ingenious occupied with mechanical matters, great military preferment. Any old time, Venus in Aries can throw a temper tantrum, sweetly, mind you, and get away with it! With Rigel she just might have a little more teeth. You might call her on it or decide to wait a bit…

Amazing Sequence of World Aspects we are currently part of:

We are in an impressive sequence of unusual aspects started with the Oct 30, 2018 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! at 18 Capricorn! June 16 & 18 2019 Jupiter/Saturn with Neptune are at 18 Pisces. The coming nine months of Jupiter/Saturn Neptune aspects lead up to the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse of the Sun at 18 Scorpio! And its sister aspect Nov 19 is Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! at 27 Sagittarius. Those in turn prepare us for the 22 Capricorn Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and the Mar 21 4 Planet Capricorn Stellium, The Crown! at 23-29 Capricorn as Saturn changes signs! Saturn conjunct Pluto is precisely linked to the powerful aspect, same degree and sign, most close to the 2020 Presidential Elections. Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

At this New Moon Venus tickles the web from 17 Aries! She is square the Pluto/Ecliptic point, semi-sextile the mid-June Neptune point, and inconjunct the Transit of Mercury! She is requesting an updating of intention, no time to lose. Yes, it will be more work, inconvenient, but it almost seems like they have been waiting for this missing piece. She shows Neptune a new shiny speed boat and he’s delighted! Sitting side by side, they imagine going on a merry ride beyond her wildest ideas! He doesn’t want to let her down, so she brings out his best! Venus quickens the Scorpio brew where the Transit of Mercury will occur. Aries and Scorpios are warriors from way back. Aries fire warms the temps, gets any sludge at the bottom moving and be released. Aries primes the pump.

Pluto is now at 23 Capricorn, just a degree from where Saturn, potently in his own sign, will catch up with Pluto Jan 12, 2020! Pluto will be at 23 when the 4 planet CP stellium forms Mar 21, 2020! There are extremes of prediction for the 2020 events. End of the world, economic collapse, bankruptcy, death, on one side. On the other is resurrection, astounding long awaited revelations through science, wealth beyond measure, serious gains made with climate control! There will be making messes and cleaning up messes. There can be bitter hate to profound regard. You can see there will be dramatic opposites, prolonged controversy. Many will be airing their dirty linen, like it or not, so keep yours clean. These aspects will have prime significance to the Nov 3 2020 Presidential election because they are precisely astrologically linked! Some things that happen on or about Jan 12, 2020 will be on the table at election time.

Jupiter sits at 23 Sagittarius now, one sign before, readying our plans and preparations. Jupiter keeps the perspective of the big picture in mind and our intentions for the future guide our every choice. Any learning and teaching are needed now to be in place for when we or others are ready for the next step. Be flexible and keep the faith! 

Those of you with factors in your charts close to 18 and 22/23 and 27 degrees will be connected. You can help or hinder or be hindered and helped! We’re counting on you to be keepers of the important informations, sacred wisdom, that are transmitted at these times – even if those are difficult times for you. You are the Guardians and will distribute valuable portions of information in potent places where it will do the most good, be effective. We honor your place, for being here this way for us.

Steady as she goes. We have a lot to do.

Wesak Seasonal Blue Flower Full Moon! 

Saturday May 18 at 2:11 PM Pacific, 27 Scorpio/Taurus 39

Buddha’s Birthday! Taurus Stellium, Pairs, Jupiter/Saturn-Neptune! 

Taurus Scorpio 2019 Wesak Buddha Seasonal Blue Full Flower Moon

The Buddha’s Birthday, Wesak, celebration date is different in different countries. In Pacific time, the United Nations will celebrate it Saturday May 18 in 2019. 

The Full BLUE Moon, is the only 2019 Seasonal Blue Moon. Since this is the third of four full moons in this season, it is known as a blue moon. This calendar event only happens once every few years, giving rise to the term, “once in a blue moon.” There are normally only three full moons in each season of the year. But since full moons occur every 29.53 days, occasionally a season will contain 4 full moons. The extra full moon of the season is known as a blue moon. Blue moons occur on average once every 2.7 years.

Three outer planets are potently in their own signs! Purity prevails. Jupiter is frolicking in Sagittarius. Saturn is steadfast in Capricorn. Neptune is apperceptive in Pisces. Venus is in one of her own signs, our sign Taurus! She breathes Nature’s beauty, is aware of natural cycles. 

Stellium! May 15 to 21 we have four planets in Taurus, Uranus, Venus in one of her own signs, Mercury and Sun – four ways to interact, four tools to apply! Uranus will bring unusual bonds of friendship, some due to weather, food needs, animal protection, sustainable shelter. Elemental. Venus will go before him showing why these matters are worth it with data and images showing valuable alternative new living systems. Wise. Mercury is out there steadily spreading the word, developing sensible answers, updating info as he goes, finding collaborators. It’s challenging and rewarding. Sun is throwing Light energy, encouraging us to stand up, each in our own special way, from our own heart. Love.  

Full Moon of Scorpio during Taurus! While Moon is checking on hidden resources, Sun is steady in Taurus, observing her progress, holding the fort. Moon may need to make a quick retreat, or the prize is too much to get away with on her own and she may need some security forces to be dispatched ASAP! She may be caught in a formidable seduction, a lot of money involved, and Sun may need to shed some Light on the affair to reveal the entirety of it all! She could be stolen away, or they could become wealthy by combining forces. Sun in Taurus protects what’s his/ours. Moon can be conservative because she is always somewhat vulnerable as mother/child. Might be the best thing that ever happened, or she may know exactly why she never ever did and will not do!

Three Planetary Pairs, two of those in Taurus! That means conjunctions of dual powers! Potency and focus!

  1. Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn have been 3° or less of each other since April 6. April 29 Saturn retrograded, still close, gaining momentum in reverse, out of the 3° range May 28. Saturn has made the approach, but they don’t connect exactly until Jan 12, 2020! The preview has made Saturn aware of what needs to be done and is giving 8 months to be prepared, get it done! It can be personal matters, teeth, skin, bones. It can be business, real estate, elders, parenting. It can be world matters, laws, borders, tariffs, protection of civil liberties. The process can be from destruction of what no longer works, reusing what does – remodeling, building from the ground up. It can be infamy, shame, or honored achievement. Your chart will be particularly called on if you have factors from 17 to 23 degrees. Capricorn rules the high mountains, hard rock solidarity, survival in sometimes harsh conditions. Band together and stay safe.

  2. Venus has just crossed Uranus in Taurus. She makes what’s unique about Uranus into something outstandingly valuable! Taurus is the most fertile land, and if you are growing food, climate and weather conditions have your complete attention. Venus is beauty, loving kindness, and Uranus is friends and everything electronic – the internet, your phone. It’s a blessed time to make connections and gather your tribe. Uranus is the planet of Evolution. Together we get those bigger ventures done! Sponsor special health research, invest in future sources of energy in behalf of climate change because the standard package is no longer serving. Help people make their changes enjoyably, help them to overcome shock, fear. Venus can help Uranus set people free and get stabilized in their new way of life! Let go of sugars, carbs, alcohol. Maybe do a Keto diet?!

  3. Mercury is talking with Sun In Taurus. They are savoring their favorite words, comparing thoughts of value, common determinations. Mercury has news and Sun is contemplating its potential, what their part in it might be. They are deciding the best ways to fertilize the fields of opportunity becoming available, how to anchor their progress for sustainable future gains. They go slowly and carefully, their considerations are provocative.  

Mercury and Sun have favorably trined the Saturn/Pluto conjunction, Mercury most recently, keeping the information flowing. Mercury is transmitting to Sun Taurus to Taurus, but their exact connection, May 21 at 6:07 AM, is after they both change signs into Gemini, one of Mercury’s signs! At that point, the nature of the message changes. It retains the original content, but the added question becomes how to get the word out to the maximum number of people that it may continue to be transmitted! Moon caught the gist of the message, is a fast mover, in this case the front person! She carries the message on in a rather Scorpio underground manner, telling it to people who will carry it potently to key places, paving the way for it to be well funded and implemented successfully later.  

Mercury also inconjuncted Jupiter in Sagittarius. Mercury is of Gemini and Virgo, knowledge and putting it to work. Jupiter of Sagittarius is opposite Gemini, square Virgo. He takes the data Gemini gathers, Virgo categorizes, and puts it collectively into perspective, gives it meaning and long term purpose. So what Mercury passes to Sun is ready to go. The Plan is in progress. 

Jupiter and Saturn are both retrograde on their way back to square and sextile Neptune June 16 & 18. These aspects are especially important because they happen while Neptune is at 18 Pisces, sextile the Pluto/Ecliptic point of Oct 30 2018 at 18 Capricorn! The whole sequence started Oct 30, 2018 with Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! The Jupiter/Saturn pair are preparing us for the Nov 11 Transit of Mercury Retrograde Eclipse and its sister aspect Nov 19, Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center! Those in turn prepare us for the Jan 12, 2020 Saturn Conjunct Pluto and Mar 21 The Crown! All of these will have strong effect on the Nov 3 2020 presidential elections.

Jupiter will be seeking greater meaning now that we have had some months of experience. Jupiter and Neptune have to do with Faith and Spirituality. Faith often has a name, a congregation. Spirituality is more your personal relationship with your beliefs, being a Savior of Humanity. It might be sitting in meditation, doing good works for suffering Souls, no name needed. Many are thinking of the huge donations being given to restore Notre Dame while cities don’t have drinking water, animals are going extinct, children are suffering. One woman wrote ‘What would Jesus do?’ Jupiter’s Truth is challenging Neptune’s blind side.

Saturn’s job is to take the best most workable ideas of the Jupiter square Neptune and parlay them into use. These three will aspect each other, two more exact times June 16/18 and Sep 21/Nov 8. Saturn is practical and offers Neptune a reasonable rebuild. Saturn cuts the time, builds strong and doesn’t waste time. Old things, stones and glass are his medium. He may take a more middle of the road stance due to public opinion. The ones donating may come to question why they haven’t given before to matters of living beings. We have these magnificent heritage buildings and we have animals going extinct on the same day. One is reparable, the other is not. Please give the majority of your energy to the long term.

Moon’s Nodes recently spanned across Saturn, the South Node at Saturn! They have to do with the Past. We have been considering how things used to be, how they have been, what’s to come and what to do. Saturn wants to rebuild, make a difference, have rules that are doable. The North Node, the direction we are heading, wants food to be better quality, to eat the right kinds and amounts. Saturn can help regulate and build a better system. In addition, the Nodes are favorable, in the same degree with Neptune! Neptune is addictions of any kind, and food doesn’t cost much, is right there in your fridge. A favorable aspect can make us think we can get away with it, or Neptune can help us imagine consequences and make us realize the need to take care of ourselves better. If we aren’t talking about addictions, we can see how women, families are so important in our world today when there is so much change at hand. We all need the nurturing. We are inspired to make a safe and better world for our loved ones. We need to treat ourselves better that we may be able to help them well. Young heroines like 15 year old activist Greta Thunberg speaks truth to power at the UN COP24 climate talks. She speaks of her needs as a planetary citizen who lives on after us…

The early degree planets are getting us started! Mars just entered Cancer on the 15th, is quite fearless as usual, is activating Uranus. Mars may be slightly intimidated by his own Mother, but no one else and not for long! God knows Mothers have special powers. GrandMothers too. But if Mars takes on the Mother role, have mercy on us all! Mars will do what he wants to do in the name of taking care of you. He knows he knows what’s best for you and it’s important to do it now! If he gets rebellious to his Mother, be sure to have your best strategies at hand, LOL, you’re gonna need ’em! Uranus adds a further touch of rebellion, wanting freedom and change! Those old fashioned Cancerian ways are about to be turned over! But, if home, family, women and children need defending and liberating, you have a champion! At the very least you are going to find new ways to have food and shelter, live a better life. No dawdling!

Mars is slower, so Venus made the sextile the 14th, in different signs.

Mars is about to square Chiron May 23. There is some compatibility since Chiron is in Aries, the Mars sign. Cancer and Aries are what we call Cardinal signs, starters, so if healing and a better life is offered, they can get a lot done together. There will probably need to be an acceptance that each has a different way of doing things. Aries is gonna be quick. Cancer might want to wait and doesn’t give up the old ways so easily. But somebody has to break through. Even if a few mistakes are made, hopefully they are not only reparable, but new discoveries are made through the process that are even better than the original proposal! Go get ’em and good luck!

Hold Beauty true, give Blessings, steady onward with Peace in your Heart.

2019 New Year AstroLogical Chart! Bowl, Capricorn Stellium!

2019 New Year’s Day’s Bowl chart starts the year with a three planet Stellium in Capricorn that is part of the longest stellium of 2019!

  • Dec 22, 2018, the day after Winter Solstice/first day of Capricorn, the day of the Cancer/Capricorn Full Moon, to Jan 5, 2019,  three planets in Capricorn! Includes New Year.
  • Jan 5, the Solar Eclipse Capricorn New Moon, to Jan 6 Moon and Mercury join to make FIVE in Cap.
  • Jan 7 to 20, first day of Aquarius, Lunar Eclipse Full Leo/Aquarius SuperMoon, FOUR planets in Capricorn. Includes the Jan 13 Jupiter square Neptune, the first outer planets aspect of 2019.
  • Jan 21 to 23, three in Capricorn.

En total, 32 days! During those days there will be three Lunar events, the Cancer/Capricorn Full Moon, the Solar Eclipse Capricorn New Moon, and the Lunar Eclipse Full Leo/Aquarius SuperMoon! There are only three 5 planet stelliums in 2019. The next is in Virgo, the last is in Capricorn at the end of the year. Capricorn strongly starts and finishes 2019. Commitment, the Builder, achievement. It’s a cardinal earth sign that gets to the point, gets things done, and on time!

Briefly, in the New Year chart, Sun is about to conjunct Saturn, Capricorn’s planet! New Years always start with the Sun in Capricorn, the heart of our commitments, self-fathering. Mars is at Zero Aries, the first degree of the entire zodiac, rebellious as can be, a leader of new beginnings! Truly a fresh start! Both feminine planets, Moon and Venus, are in Scorpio looking after our underpinnings. Moon is sextile Scorpio’s planet Pluto, the healer, power broker, astute investor. Venus is embracing the deepest parts of Spirit in a Grand Water Trine with Chiron the Healer/Teacher in Pisces and the Moon’s North Node in Moon’s sign Cancer nurturing all. Water is sensitive, intuitive, often compassionate.

2019’s first aspect is Jupiter square Neptune. There is so much going on at times confusion reigns, things can get a bit hysterical – sometimes scary – you could get lost, but it can be both entertaining and delightfully rampant as well, depending on where you are standing! Jupiter in Sagittarius is aiming to expand Neptune’s range of attention, and that’s almost an inconceivable idea because Neptune, especially in its own sign Pisces, is so all encompassing to begin with! But Jupiter, robust and mostly innocent in his intent to be benevolent, is undaunted. Saturn follows each of the three Jupiter squares with his sextile to Neptune, calming things down. Sextiles offer opportunity, and out of chaos, practical Saturn extracts what’s usable and doable, condenses it, converts it to productive function.

Mercury in Sag is square old Chiron, whispering funny things to him, tickling him so he forgets himself! And Mercury is mischievously fire trining Uranus in Aries! Some of the craziest ideas will make the news and bring unexpected success, while the creators, Mercury & Uranus, are not surprised at all!

See the complete 2019 UPDATED Special Annual Edition! Especially see about the two major sister events of 2019 – the Transit of Mercury eclipse and Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center!

This same chart starts the 2019 Bowl Charts. 

Chart Planetary Patterns - Bundle, Bowl, Bucket, Locomotive, Seesaw, Splay, Splash
Chart patterns that result in us all approaching life so differently…

Rock-a-bye baby…the current Bowl Chart Pattern started in 2018 when outer planet Jupiter moved into Scorpio. Jupiter then became halfway across the wheel from Uranus, with all the other outer planets between them on one side. When Jupiter moved into Sagittarius the outer planets became even less than halfway! Each period when the Moon, Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars pass from Scorpio through Taurus at the same time, this ‘Bowl’ occurs, all the planets on one side.

Depending on the time of day you are born, the ‘Bowl’ may be at the bottom of your chart collecting, or over the top pouring out its collection or making shade or being an umbrella! At the sides of the chart it may act as a wind scoop or buffer, satellite dish receiver! And so it is symbolically with those of us who have this kind of birth chart. We may always be gathering, sheltering, protecting, guarding what’s ours.

Children, adults, born with Bowl charts can be introverted, very skilled, value their possessions. They love rolling around, but in what they see as their own territory! They may be self-contained with great inner strength. They can be super generous if their Bowl is over the top or tips out abundance. If their Bowl is at the side of their chart they may have super focus and awareness of their surroundings, echo back what they see. The Bowl below may wait to see what falls their way, keeping the keepers, pushing out what doesn’t fit or is outgrown.

Some astrologers say Bowl chart people ‘need’ the part of their chart that isn’t filled. I don’t find that to be true. Many are quite content being exactly who they are, doing what they love. Focused and intent as they are, working for perfection, they already have enough to do, LOL! They do their job, let others do theirs.

A little more about Bowls! In zodiacal order, the starting and ending signs are important as such, and they are usually opposite! They ‘know’ each other because they are opposite sides of the same coin so to speak. The first sign takes up the thread. The information is passed along, refined, enhanced, is the final product at the last sign. That ‘line’ side to side, across the edges of the top of the Bowl can be defining or, as others might see it, limiting. Remember that you are seeing it from your perspective, not theirs.

If the mid sign between the first and last signs is occupied, it takes on importance because it often aspects those beginning and ending signs equally, influencing their actions with the same flavor. That can be in a common configuration to Bowls called a T Square! T Squares are considered challenging, but some relish the challenge, and after all, if you live with it all your life, somewhere along in time, you learn to use it well. That sign at the belly of the Bowl is the T Square point. It may ‘take the point,’ supported by the rest of the planets, taking precedence over all the other signs in the Bowl!

Dec 2019 the same conditions that make Bowls will apply, but Jupiter will also be in Capricorn trining Uranus, in only a THIRD of the wheel Mar 27 to April 3, 2022! ALL the planets span only 104 degrees! That pattern called, a BUNDLE, is the most rare! Exceptional people with fantastic specialty talents will be born! At that time, planetary events will have a singularity, others will be ‘neglected’ simply because there are no planets there. A person born in that period will become an expert – the rest is not their job. Pay careful attention to nurture the best in them just the way they are. Pay attention to their signals. Look ahead to those times so you can be in harmony with this extraordinary energy!

We will be living in a rare planetary time. As the coming years go by, the Bowl and Bundle charts will be common though Bundle charts are the most rare. 2020 Jupiter will be in Capricorn, Saturn will meander on ahead into Aquarius. Jupiter’s last conjunction with Pluto will be Nov 12, 2020, leaving Pluto to be the defining earliest planet. 2021 to June 2, 2024 Pluto and leading planet Uranus will be in less than a third of the chart! Many Bowl and Bundle charts will be possible. Jan 21, 2024 Pluto pops into Aquarius, Jupiter passes Uranus then trines Pluto June 2. From then on, the Bundle chart is not as tight, will soon exceed the degrees of the definition. When Jupiter makes it to Leo mid 2026, we are back to Bowl charts for a brief period. Then, Bowl charts won’t happen again until 2031. For Bundles it will be a long, long time as Uranus and Saturn move out of the trine/third from Pluto and the outer planets spread around the signs.

Many people, Souls, will be called on to have the much needed specialties of these charts to concentrate on planetary matters – environmental and social.

These 2019 dates are when the planets are in 1/2 or less of the chart making a Bowl Chart!

New Year to Jan 17
Jan 27 to Feb 14
Feb 23 to Mar 14
March 24 to April 10
April 22 to May 7

At this point Mars extends past the halfway point in the charts and doesn’t get to the opposite side, opposite Uranus until Nov 24. Moon is with Mars the same day and the other personal planets are also now in just half the chart again!

Nov 24 to Dec 9
Dec 21 to Jan 7, 2020

Many people born these two years will have this powerful configuration. Keep their Spirits well fed. They may quickly absorb, knead, devour, grind up, nibble and nosh, dispatch and dispose of what’s not needed or done with. They will take the polished results to the bank! It’s sort of like panning for gold – a little random, a lot likely!

Chance favors a prepared mind. ~  Louis Pasteur (a Bowl chart with SIX planets in Capricorn, sign of Science – 5 of those from 0 to 7 degrees!)

Full Frost Moon!

Nov 22 the Sun leaps into Sagittarius at 1:02 AM Pacific, on ThanksGiving Day! The stage has been set. The Full Frost Moon is that evening at 9:39 PM Pacific, 0 Gemini/Sagittarius 52! It’s on Nov 23 at 12:39 AM EASTERN time!

Mercury Retrograde. T Square, Kite, Cardinal Grand Square ~ all linked! 

Sagittarius 2018 Full Travelers Moon
This one is called the Beaver or Frost Moon, but this year we might as well call it the Travelers’ Moon! It’s on ThanksGiving Day and whether you are going home to be with family or taking advantage of the holiday to take a trip, many are going to be on the road or in that plane! 

AND, this is the first lunar event, and I do mean first, it and Jupiter are at zero degrees, with Jupiter now in his own sign Sagittarius – the planet and sign of travelers! Apropos it is since the Full Moon spans Gemini (Moon) to Sun sign Sagittarius conjunct Jupiter, on the first day of 2018 Sagittarius!!! Arms open wide, Moon and Sun cross the dimensions. Gemini is fascinated by every single encounter with any possible living or inanimate thing at its fingertips! Sagittarius would walk 100 miles to see what is over that next hill and who might be there! Gemini thinks 100 miles a minute while Sagittarius is contemplating what it all means and is making plans to go another 100, knowing there is more! 

Mars sits at a T point to the Moon, Sun and Jupiter! His temperament is very different than theirs. They are chatty and heady compared with him in Pisces. He is a leader, but in Pisces can take complete silence. He can lead from behind or within, yet get him on a pulpit and the fire comes out! He can surprisingly lead the fray, an inspired compassionate leader in behalf of those who suffer. He is sensitive to what needs doing now to save the most later. His sensitivity avoids mistakes, gets right to the heart of things.

Sun and Jupiter are backed by a Grand Trine/Kite that finished Nov 19. Sun was in Scorpio then, received advice from Chiron in Pisces and the Moon’s North Node in Moon’s sign Cancer. Chiron gave tips on healing the Soul, the helpless and hopeless, other leaders involved with planetary healing. The Cancer North Node impressed Sun with the organic need for food and shelter, cleanliness and emotional support. Sun now in Sagittarius wants people to know, and put programs in place to get people on their feet, to be able to be contributing citizens.

Moon sits sextile midpoint between Chiron and Moon’s own North Node. And, she is one point of that T Square! She links them. First, as sextile Chiron and the Node, she too got the information Sun and Jupiter did! Where Sun & Jupiter in Sag are promoters, the Moon rules our shelter, women, children, the public at large. She knows the feelings of the times. She’s like a weather barometer that helps us make our moves at the times best for their reception. Sextiles of water and earth, she was in Taurus then, blend understanding and application. Taurus wants it to be anchored and long serving. Now in Gemini she’s spreading the word, getting thinking going. Next thing you know you are on the volunteer list!

There is a Cardinal Grand Square too! Cardinal signs get things going! Uranus is the Chief in Aries, leader, first responder! He thinks in terms of from the loner to all humanity! Getting one pivotal key person started can become an avalanche of success, worldwide achievement! Venus, in her own sign Libra, is sweeting her way along mending rifts, introducing strangers of great differences, blessing the day with beauty. She explains legalities and has teeth when she needs them. Don’t underestimate her. The Moon’s Nodes are the second axis – Capricorn south, Cancer North. We have been no nonsense business people before, building solidly a day at a time, supervising the troops, buying time, doing research and testing. Now we are adding in Cancerian caring, nurturing with quality food and comforting, offering personal support in community matters, the Sacred Feminine. Children are our treasures of the future.  

Uranus sits midpoint semisextile between Chiron and Moon! He links all three configurations, The Mars T Square, the Grand Trine and the Grand Cardinal Square. These are all action oriented combinations.

Venus is no longer retrograde, but Mercury is now since Nov 16. See more about Venus/Mercury Retrograde! It’s especially significant to this Full Moon since Mercury is Gemini’s planet! Communications are essential to spreading the good word. When Mercury/Gemini exchanges across the table to Sagittarius, he knows the information will go far and wide for free! Sagittarius loves telling stories, educating, sharing perspectives, opening minds to a vast array of information. Travel blogs to tomes. The retrograde function keeps reviewing, stirring the pot, incorporating insights that have come along.

Mercury squares Neptune. Mercury is pretty clear in Sagittarius, has his opinions. He has his usual ‘chatter’ but in Sag he’s looking for meaning too. He’s more likely to pick a direction. Or, he’s scattered more than ever with all those Sag possibilities in mind. Retrograde makes for a lot of quick mind changing. Neptune too can go either way. Either it’s mass confusion and illusion, or you would give your life for what you are dedicated to! Mercury is usually logical, Neptune is famous for those psychic curve balls! Good thing Mercury is quick on his feet in a fire sign, like a flash in Sagittarius, the sign of the nimble traveler avoiding the potholes! Good luck!

Saturn is making his own notes in his own sign Capricorn. He’s tallying, watching for what works, how much time it will take, materials needed. To him it seems like a zoo for the moment. He is wisely waiting for the dust to settle a bit. 

Pluto took the Light with him down under, below the Ecliptic Oct 30! Now Kundalini and Phoenix style he is ‘raising’ Hell, LOL! What an awesome job. The mighty midterm elections brought more ethnicity, more women, and LBGTQ! Pluto will have to make many powerful yet delicate shifts to bring these new people into productive work in their new jobs, help them stand tall yet balanced, to facilitate and establish their new ideas into a working part of our fabric. This Full Moon is equipped to help see the many facets that need to be harmonized. The ‘shifting sands’ of these mutable signs, Gemini and Sagittarius can be like quicksand swallowing you up, or a mixing bowl bringing each thing that needs work to the surface so it can be dealt with. Mutable signs are known to be in motion, adaptable – sometimes accommodating, other times taking you with them! 

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

Astronomical note! Our Full Moon is occuring at the same time as what is called the Pleiadian Alignment that started Nov 15, finishing Nov 23, the day after ThanksGiving! Earth, Moon 0 Gemini, Sun and the Pleiades 0 Gemini are precisely in a row! They were known as the Weeping Sisters, in old horary astrology, something to weep about. Lord knows we in California have had just that with the deadly Camp Fire and the sad losses with the Woolsey Fire. Some organic astrologers equate the weeping with rain. We are hoping for a steady light rain that our scorched land can absorb. The Pleiades are also called the Seven Sacred Sisters, with various mythologies about them, feminine, intuitive. Please allow a special channel to flow between us all. Blessed be. 

Also, take some special time this Full Moon day to consider what to do and make plans to do it. Review the 2019 Annual Special Edition. Jot notes in your calendar. Don’t worry if it isn’t perfect. Start as you can. Expect intelligent modifications to occur, a few natural mistakes. Mercury is retrograde, changing things on purpose, and it shouldn’t all go as planned, but, in time, even better! Evolution is the constant of change!

New Moon!

Thursday December 6 Mercury DIRECT 1:22 PM Pacific then the New Moon at 11:20 PM Pacific, 15 Sagittarius 07. It’s on December 7 in all the other US Time zones east of Pacific. 

Mercury Direct! Jupiter in own sign & New Moon in Sagittarius! Grand Square, Grand Trine, Mars/Neptune, 15°!

New Moon Sagittarius 2018 Milky Way Yellowstone

Photographer Dave Lane says a storm just passed before he captured this beautiful sight at Yellowstone National Park in 2015. He spent 4 months color-correcting the night time images to match them to the natural colors seen in the daytime at Yellowstone National Park. See the image large! See Dave’s photography tips!

This is the first New Moon during Jupiter in Sagittarius and the New Moon is IN Sagittarius! Hallelujah! It’s a double Sag chart plus Jupiter is in his own sign Sagittarius! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. This is a 12 year restart for Jupiter! Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times. Each New Moon is the wellspring of sign it is in, a fresh charge, and a pure source of that energy. And it’s the perfect support  for Jupiter! In his sign Sagittarius, Sun shines for him and Moon can feel the Sag messages so important to share! Make notes! Schedule to review and update them from time to time!

Mercury is no longer retrograde! Mercury Rx returns to Scorpio Dec 1 and Venus enters Scorpio Dec 2 at 9:02 AM Pacific. Mercury entered an intense Station (appearing to standstill) for 8 days in the last degrees of Scorpio! The Scorpio messages will be steeped, condensed, focused on, anchored in place. Decide what you want to keep as core guidance, let the rest go. Your foundation is set, move on with Venus’s blessing. Mercury turns direct, forward, Dec 6, the heart of the station, on the Sagittarius NEW MOON! The turn, very slow at first, has been made. After the next four days the findings will start being released, momentum will be gained. Mercury returns to Sagittarius Dec 12. He will be downloading the information to Jupiter Dec 12, leaving nothing out, until he conjuncts Jupiter Winter Solstice, Yule, Dec 21! Venus will be left behind on her own, still in Scorpio. See more: Venus/Mercury Retrograde Back to Back!

This chart is rather simple – you can see in the chart there are few aspects made – the color connector lines. What is exciting is that the point of the red triangle and the big blue triangle are linked!

There is the red, triangle that actually represents a Grand Square of Uranus, Venus and the Moon’s Nodes! It is quite odd in its combination. Uranus is in fire sign Aries retrograde. It will be squared by the Moon’s North Node in it’s own sign Cancer, also retrograde. Since the node moves faster, it will make the square while both of them are retrograde. Uranus in fiery Aries couldn’t be more his own man, complete loner to a leader of humanitarian efforts. Either way he is consumed, others have to come to him. Moon’s North Node in its own water sign Cancer is more likely to stay home unless it is a matter of taking care of the children. Venus is also in a water sign, Scorpio, still close but leaving them both behind. Water signs are usually trine, a harmonious aspect, but here they are square, somewhat at odds yet in compatible signs. It’s a similar setup for Venus ‘opposite’ Uranus. Oppositions are usually in opposite signs, which oddly have some compatibility. In this case they would be Aries/Libra – fire/air or Taurus/Scorpio – earth/water. But these are not. They are Fire/Water. Could be steamy, but Venus, of Libra has had enough of that upstart Aries, no finesse she thinks. Or she is impressed, and takes up his cause. In charismatic Scorpio she is looking for love and money, or wants to be around involvement with deep healing skills and centers for homeless, hospice, addictions. She’s blessed and not afraid of the dark side or being behind the scenes. Oh, the juicy secrets! She is not just a pretty face; she will do more than expected and more than we will ever know. Give her the reigns, yet check on her from time to time for your own peace of mind. 

There is the blue Grand Water Trine. The Moon’s North Node links the Grand Square with the Trine. Trines are considered a blessed configuration and the North Node too. North Node is our aspiration, balance with the South. In this trine, Mercury is exactly at the same degree and minute, giving deeper facts and wisdom from Scorpio, who has faced life and death. The North Node in Cancer wants to protect its own, so is quite grateful and now more able to secure resources and the safety of loved ones. Though the Node, always moving backwards through the signs, and Chiron are parting, Chiron in Pisces saw the weak points and showed the Node how to apply healing of spirit, as Scorpio showed the Node healing remedies. In turn, The node offered a nurturing place to stay, free of obsessions and addictions, instead a safe place with innocent babies and children that give us the reason to say clean and sober, to not stray from the organic reasons for being here together. Many times healers need to heal themselves. This trine is a great gift.

This trine helps calm the red lines. Uranus needs to be free, but how free? We are all a part of each other. We breathe the same air. Be free to be sweet. Pay more attention to the living beings around you doing the best they can. Be free to be able to receive love. Being touched by the Spirit of others makes a living difference. Venus in Scorpio can be enamored with her own seductive beauty that may be the source of her money. She may forget she too is a part of a web of dear humans that would love and admire her for more of what she is rather than what she has. They will love her when she is wrinkled and gray. She may be so wrapped up in giving healing she forgets herself. Open those pretty eyes, lift that chin, see and feel the love people have for you. Keep the balance.

The New Moon itself not in either pattern! In fact, it is virtually standing alone numerically. Both Moon and Sun recently squared Mars and Neptune, but, traveling faster, Moon and Sun are leaving them behind. What they will carry with them is the spice of Mars’s dreams while he has been close with Neptune. Mars has been inspired by Neptune’s amazing insights. Mars isn’t noted for being subtle, but he is in Neptune’s sign with Neptune. He is being steeped in Spirit. Aligned, he sees the vision too. Neptune is in Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac. Mars is the planet of Aries, the first sign of the zodiac! It’s alpha and omega, the beginning and the end! What one starts the other must end. What one dreams the other must begin! Both are planets of Initiation, one through perceptions and visions, the other through the action taken in their behalf! Leadership is often born of what we see that needs saving.

Mars makes the exact conjunction Dec 7 at 6:12 AM Pacific, so essentially, the daytime operative hours are the same day as the New Moon! Two beginnings at once! It is also true that Neptune and Pisces may obscure your vision and accuracy. You or what’s out there may seemingly be ‘invisible.’ Please be careful if you feel tired, distressed, or even super ‘high.’ You may not be as invincible as you imagine, and poor judgment may be your undoing. It’s ok to slow down. We are all on God’s time. Illusion and confusion, intentional deception, could take you on a wrong lead for a time. If necessary, admit your mistake, get help if necessary, and get back on track. Some of these experiences will strengthen you. You won’t fall prey again, and you will guide others away from these traps. The other side of that same coin is a breakthrough! Your perception may be so heightened you can see like never before! You are guided to do the perfect right thing at the right moment. Blessed be. If you are in water sports, you could be the impassioned winner, the hero of the day!

Special info for those of you with 14, 15, 16° factors in your charts! The Libra New Moon Oct 8 started a 7 month series of New Moons at 15° of their signs. Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries New Moons are each at the 15° midpoint of their signs. By midway, they ‘learn’ their sign and are tipping in favor of maturity and completion. All these Moons are resonant to each other! Each represents a turning point, a choice point on how to proceed further, a balance within their sign. Some of the signs will be in harmony aspects to the others, ie Libra and Sagittarius will make sextiles and trines to other air and fire signs. This one in Sagittarius will square the one in Pisces and trine the last one in Aries. Scorpio will make trines and sextiles with other earth and water signs. The master Capricorn Solar Eclipse Jan 5, 2019, however, the first 2019 lunar event, will be midpoint between Libra and Aries, the first and last signs in the series! A lot will hinge on his decisions and influence the remaining three, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries.

Saturn is still making his own notes in his own sign Capricorn. He’s tallying, watching for what works, how much time it will take, materials needed. To him it seems like a zoo for the moment. He is wisely waiting for the dust to settle a bit.

Pluto is still pondering, likely will be strongly for a couple more years, how he took the Light with him down under, below the Ecliptic Oct 30! He now, Kundalini and Phoenix style, is ‘raising’ Hell, LOL! What an awesome job. The mighty midterm elections brought more ethnicity, more women, and LBGTQ! It will be an ongoing responsibility to make many powerful yet delicate shifts to bring these new people into productive work in their new jobs, help them stand tall yet balanced, to facilitate and establish their new ideas into a working part of our fabric. 

This New Moon is strengthening our purpose. It’s about making meaningful and realistic plans about things that matter to our future. It’s the walk of a lifetime.

Full Hunter’s Moon!

Wednesday October 24 at 9:45 AM Pacific, 1 Taurus/Scorpio 13 

Grand Fixed Square, Venus Retrograde, 4 Planet Scorpio Stellium! 

Moon Seekers Frost Alexis Woman Crystal Ball Owl

Beautiful art called Moon Seekers by Frost Alexis!

This is the last Lunar event before Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic Oct 30! That day starts TEN days of events including the Scorpio NEW Moon! Since Pluto is Scorpio’s planet, it just seems right for the conjunction to occur in Scorpio. This Full Moon, the Ecliptic event, and the New Moon are all during Venus Retrograde! Scorpio and Pluto turn the deepest soils of our Psyche, whether they are cleaning up or stirring our fertility, preparing new ground for raising the seedlings of times to come! Venus is in Scorpio for the Full Moon and Pluto/Ecliptic, then in Libra for the New Moon. She wants us to shift our positions. She wants to establish cleaner relationships with people and money, how we heal each other and to wield our finances with higher purpose always in mind. See more about Venus/Mercury Retrograde!

Pluto, the Kundalini planet, the Phoenix that rises from its own ashes, at the Ecliptic, experiences the greatest infusion of Light possible! He is at the exact point of crossing the Sun’s Path! He stands in the fire, letting the Light burn away what has slowed things down, the no longer needed, the outgrown, mistakes, clingy obsessive behaviors. He will hardly know himself, so much ‘lighter’ now! He who was hiding can only powerfully glow and show himself now, his true heart, who he has always been. See more because it’s also important to see about the 2019 Transit of Mercury at that link!

Moon Taurus & Sun Scorpio are opposite. Taurus says mine; Scorpio says ours. Moon is in favor of keeping it for the family, investing in commodities. Sun fires up the coals of Scorpio and claims his territory with a kiss you can’t resist! Moon in Taurus has an intrinsic sense of what will hold lasting value, the foundation of your portfolio. Scorpio has behind the scene connections, knows just when to make the grab.

Taurus may be quite happy sitting in flowers at the side of the road – like the Buddha. Scorpio is on the motorcycle speeding by, but slams on the brakes to find out why you are there. He has an extra helmet and takes Moon to lunch at the organic cafe in town. He enjoys her peacefulness, patience and kindness, how she takes the time to really listen to him. Deep sigh. She is emboldened by his rapt attention when she shares. He may have a deep recognition of the small flame of her passion, and she comes to realize how important what she said is. He already knows, and endorses her leap into a bigger world!

Sweet Venus, Taurus’s planet, is Retrograde, ahead of Sun, coming back toward him as he moves forward! They meet each other, Venus with Love and Grace, Sun with his Heart of Love. Venus ruling Taurus is the planet of the sign opposite Scorpio, yet Venus is now IN Scorpio! So, much of the Moon opposition Sun applies here too! Venus’s job while Retrograde is to review and revise Scorpio matters such as deep relationships with oneself and others, financial proceedings, sources of health issues, healing protocols. Spiritually it is obsessions, fears, purification, to suspend time and space, let go of mean and vengeful behaviors, to share with the depth as if you were the other person, to understand the ultimate abandonment – the death of a loved one!

Sun is also taking some long term steps favored by a hard working sextile with Saturn, the old Master. When Scorpio is with you, they will do everything in their power, and that’s no small thing, to help you build your spiritual framework. Saturn/Capricorn is Dharma, the work of the Soul, and it needs a place to live and do business efficiently!

Uranus is also retrograde, but behind Moon, each separating from the other. Intuitive Moon just crossed the cutting edge wildcard inventor and freedom seeker Uranus, an electrifying experience! Taurus is sensible and already making changes, anchoring those genius ideas! She is protecting them, feeding them until they can stand on their own! Moon knows about cycles and this could be a rare opportunity. Uranus has been changing signs from Aries, now in preview mode in Taurus. Taurus has an instinct for what’s his and makes steady progress securing what’s within reach, in this case a taste of the future! Moon is 100% in favor and will make some canny trades that enhance your assets.

4 Planet Scorpio stellium! In addition to this lucky Uranus/Moon connection, besides Sun and Venus in Scorpio, Mercury and Jupiter are conjunct in Scorpio as well! They are consulting and won’t fail! They play the undercurrents well. Mercury accumulates a valuable bag full of information just waiting to be put to use. Jupiter’s big blue eyes have a knack for perspective. They see the possible outcomes of several venues, how they in turn fit together and make the picture whole! Jupiter is just plain lucky! He and Mercury are conjuring all sorts of multi- faceted opportunities, and funding is easily negotiated! They both were recently sextile Pluto in Capricorn, a master business combination. Great business, partnership, travel and location choices are made in no time! The right school is Ace!

Early Degrees SIX Planet GRAND FIXED Square!

Moon’s nodes are spanning Aquarius/Leo making a Grand Fixed Square with Moon/Uranus and Sun/Venus!

They are in early degrees, 0 to 4, so it’s too early to tell the outcomes. It’s exploratory and creative now, which somewhat contradicts the whole idea of ‘fixed’ signs that are meant to stabilize things. But, what’s good may be grabbed and anchored for useful future use! The Moon/Uranus combo we talked about just above may need to be more instinctual than stats. It will depend on Taurus’s sense of magnetism and the Moon’s amazing sense of cycles, past to future! They will likely defy the odds and win!

The Aquarian South Node loves defying the odds! Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose – c’est la vie! But, Taurus and Scorpio have no such feelings! In this case, an experimental Aquarian choice can bust you for the rest of your life if you lose your estate. Balancing with the North Node in Leo is the more amenable solution in this combination. Leo likes to spend money, so preserving the income making parts of the business favor Leo’s choice, LOL! Aquarius was free and the animal part of us doesn’t forget how important that is. Leo wants to create, use color and Light, perform as a teacher or at the theatre. Aquarius wants humanity networked; the center stage promoter of the cause, with huge presence, is LEO! Leo can make money and get funding for them all! Work it together!

The rest of the planets….

Mars is holding a light footed position in Aquarius. He is semisextile Pluto, can be helpful at an instant’s notice. While others are not expecting big moves from Pluto in conservative Capricorn, at this time Mars may be his secret weapon or security guard! Once triggered, Mars in AQ is lightning quick with surprise tactics. Off to the sides he may already be preparing the way. Keep watch, don’t let yourself be flanked! On the other hand, as others are working hard, you may be off enjoying watching the dust fly on the ski slopes! While you are there, you may connect with other leading environmentalists, exchange vital information.

Chiron is at 28 Pisces, left behind by all the early degree planets. He may be enjoying some rest, pondering what needs healing, how to do it and when. He has some intuitive teaching techniques and ideas in mind. In time it will settle and be a foundation for many years to come.

Neptune rocks on, on his own, in his own sign Pisces. Neptune too is ready when we need him. He’s free to be himself, uninfluenced at this Full Moon time.

IN THE BACKGROUND

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, only SIX DAYS from his conjunction with the Ecliptic, at his South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving Unfinished that lies in darkness, waiting.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

May your hunt bring you what you have always been preciously seeking ~

New Moon!

Wednesday November 7 at 8:02 AM Pacific, 15 Scorpio 11

Pluto/Ecliptic, Venus Still RX/Grand Square, Jupiter Scorpio/Sagittarius!

Scorpio Dark New Moon Earthshine

Transformation right before your eyes! The dark face of the Moon has a faint shine, a ghostly version of a full Moon called earthshine. It tends to be brightest between April and June. NASA Earth Observatory

EVENT #1! This New Moon will be the first Lunar event following Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic (the Sun’s Path), a 248 year event! This is the last Lunar event before Jupiter leaves Scorpio to enter its own sign Sagittarius! It is one of a 10 day strand of aspects following Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic. The 10 day series of events ends with this Jupiter sign change! It will be 12 years before Jupiter will be in Scorpio again.

Here is the full timeline with a brief description:

  • Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Golden Ecliptic, is at its South Node 18 Capricorn 58 – a 248 year event! The power is light! See more!!!
  • Oct 31 Halloween. Always magical to try on different roles, acknowledge the ancestors and their wisdom.
  • Nov 1 Jupiter trine Chiron one time in water signs at 28 Scorpio/Pisces 31. Maximum learning, healing, opportunity, possible marriage – but don’t do it yet! This is the LAST aspect made to Chiron before he goes back into Aries Feb 18, 2019, not to return to Pisces for another 51 years! This aspect offers last healings before Uranus leaves Taurus, back to review Aries ideas and propositions. He won’t return to Aries for another 84 years! You see the magnitude of our choices at this time. Be strong. Meet those opportunities with new strength.
  • Nov 6 Uranus back into Aries. No sleeping dogs! Champions and leaders are back on call! Time to rethink ideas and techniques.
  • Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon! Scorpio is Pluto’s sign! We look into the Underworld, at our deepest motives. Jupiter inconjunct Uranus is at the LAST degree of Scorpio! It never was meant to be a straight path! Deviate with the best of them!
  • Nov 8 Jupiter in his own sign Sagittarius! The pleasure is your purpose! Blessings on your Journey!!!

Pluto brings Light to where the deepest healing being needed can be seen. Jupiter trine Chiron heals the healer so Pluto’s work can be done with maximum success! Uranus back in Aries calls us to any unfinished challenges, to make new beginnings on the spot! The Scorpio New Moon calls us to heal and release our deepest powers in a good way and invite selected others to fund and help. Jupiter inconjunct Uranus tickles our wildest planet into checking out further options to apply its genius to. Jupiter in Sagittarius doesn’t see it as too far to go, in fact, can’t wait! We’re on!

The framing of this year’s Scorpio New Moon in this sequence is profound! The New Moon, in Pluto’s sign, is a recipient of each part of the sequence as well as being an essential part of it, giving a purity of cleansing and healing energy that will facilitate it’s entire progress. Each New Moon is the wellspring of sign it is in, a fresh charge, and a pure source of that energy. This time it has special intention that will be carried along with all the long term aspects associated with Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic! See more!

EVENT #2!  Jupiter Scorpio/Sagittarius The New Moon Jupiter is at 29 Scorpio, 29 being the last degree of any sign, it’s the end! Scorpio loves endings that herald the Phoenix rising from its own ashes! Dramatic? Yes. Real? Yes! Knowing the Grace of endings and new life that springs from it is a life skill. Everyone has Scorpio in their chart! Healing and Rebirth are revered. Previous experiences are the fertilizer, sometimes stinky, but always fruitful! In this 29 degree position, Jupiter inconjuncts Uranus, the planet of r/evolution, change, freedom, humanity! It spans from friendship to world consortiums, networks both from spiritual to the internet.

At maturity, Jupiter is dancing, celebrating with the electric planet! It’s the last jolt before the leap into his own sign Sagittarius Nov 8, the very next day! Jupiter the journalist gathered an impressive store of information of all kinds while browsing the underworlds of Scorpio. Sagittarius, the sign of perspective, will be sorting the array, finding a greater collaborative meaning than each piece standing alone. A bold broad Pathway will emerge. Jupiter’s faith will be boundless in his excitement! Lady Luck will be with him! Mercury is already ahead of him at 8 Sag, scanning, thinking, engaging with new people from many places. Jupiter’s transition into Sagittarius will be seamless!

Venus retrograde in her own sign Libra is most assuredly spicing the mix! She is opposite Uranus, encountering one of the most exotic beings she has ever met! Good thing she has that Libra aplomb! But she is ever the gracious ambassador, always brings the best of an encounter back with her. Uranus is the planet of freedom, on the cutting edge. She is either surprised that such an intelligent person is such a loner, or envious of his worldwide network! She can help him appear more mainstream and get an audience that will appreciate him.

They are in turn linked with Mars in Aquarius! Aquarius is Uranus’s sign, and Uranus is in Aries, Mars’ sign – called a Mutual Reception! Mars loves what’s new and fresh! Uranus is one of the few that will hold his attention for very long. Uranus is delighted how quickly Mars gets the idea, and impressed by his immediate action in its behalf!

Venus, don’t forget Venus, is trine Mars! Trines are good, the best! So happy together! Venus is still retrograde. Mars has moved forward in Aquarius and this New Moon they are trine rather than square! She’s too nice, and so is he! Mars in Aquarius is funny quirky and crazy! He loves this freedom and having a ball! Venus doesn’t mind if he flirts outrageously, or if immersed in his research, he doesn’t know you exist. He forgets to come to the party or your date, but somehow, you forgive him anyway. Plan on checking in and collecting him, SOP. Mars can inspire your socks off! Venus may find herself helping him look presentable and help him present his amazing project to clients who will see the value she sees in it. She could do some much needed fundraising for him. Go back to clients that were likely candidates before – they may have changed their minds, found an opening and be ready now!

Late degrees Grand Cardinal Square! That Venus opposite Uranus axis is square the Cancer/Capricorn North/South Moon’s Nodes. No one is standing still. Venus adores making new community connections. Uranus is wanting to engage the world. Capricorn builds homes and does business; Cancer takes care of the kids, the family, and her mate. She makes sure the kids go to a great school. They tend to be more conservative. Definitely some surprises in store! People of all kinds and places pop in! Venus smooths the way best she can, won’t win them all. Uranus speeds on but leaves his mark as their eyes open wide in shock or awe. But still, there’s no place like home. In those tired moments, some food and a safe place to sleep mean a lot. Those ones that keep the home fires burning, can support the ones that explore further possibilities and take chances in their behalf. Everyone has special skills and they can dovetail neatly.

Healer, teacher Chiron, at 28 Pisces, ties strongly with the Square. He closely semisextiles Uranus offering subtle ideas based on the needs of the people, healing Uranus without Uranus really realizing it. Chiron trines the North Node, sextiles the South. Pisces spiritually understands the need for social foundation, successfully raising children, their meaningful contribution to our future. Chiron offers visions and dreams that stir us through and through.

MOON & SUN

Sun lights the way, warms the day. Moon has her phases and shape changes, now you see her, now you don’t, never quite the same since the planets constantly shift positions. She views them from different angles and notes their progress. Sun absorbs her collections and observations when they merge at new moons. She speaks in behalf of the people, their capability, the mood of the times. It’s a potent update. He sees from a huge vantage point, commissions her with distribution of new insights. He recharges her energy because her task is big and requires strength of Spirit. She disseminates the treasured information, always sensitive to the effect it has. As she circles, every point of view gives her a more whole portrait of the evolution of Sun’s ideas. Moon is his invaluable link, collaborator.

The New Moon union of Sun and Moon is special in Scorpio as well as it was in Libra, each a sign of relationships. Libra looks for equality, wants connection, is an ambassador, mediator, makes beauty. Scorpio  wants a deep unspoken connection to the inner self, seeks to heal the source cause, bring you to full power. Libra seeks funding for many causes, can be the ‘face’; Scorpio has a way with money, has the funds, is uncanny at estimating who you are. Libra is the front; Scorpio is the power behind the throne.

Special info for those of you with 14, 15, 16 degree factors in your charts! Last month’s Libra New Moon started a 7 month 15 degree sequence. Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces and Aries New Moons are each at the 15 degree midpoint of their signs. By midway, they ‘learn’ their sign and are tipping in favor of maturity and completion. All these Moons are resonant to each other! Each  represents a turning point, a choice point on how to proceed further, a balance within their sign. Some of the signs will be in harmony aspects to the others, ie Libra and Sagittarius will make sextiles and trines to other air and fire signs. Scorpio will make trines and sextiles with other earth and water signs. Scorpio will square Aquarius Feb 4, 2019; Sagittarius will square Pisces. The Jan 5, 2019 master Capricorn Solar Eclipse, however, will be 90 degree midpoint between Libra and Aries, the first and last signs of the sequence, during a 5 planets Capricorn stellium! Capricorn is the midpoint sign of the entire sequence! A lot will hinge on his decisions.

The New Moon is sextile Pluto, freshly from his Ecliptic encounter, from the same point as when Jupiter at 15 Scorpio was trine Neptune Aug 19th! At the Libra New Moon, Sun and Moon had just inconjuncted Neptune in his own sign Pisces. This New Moon was just trine Neptune, a trine being the most favorable connection! They are even more empathic than before! Neptune knows oceanic power, has all kinds of visions and perception. Neptune is lending his ultra-sensitivity and psychic insight and vision that even Scorpio is impressed by. Scorpio knows what’s up with people, their motives and secret wishes; Neptune knows why and how that is connected to their Soul. Neptune has freshly transferred some of this to Sun and Moon so they will do better in their encounter with the God of Life and Death, healing and rising from one’s own ashes!

Since Pluto is Scorpio’s planet, the New Moon senses the way for Pluto. Sun energizes, Moon nurtures. Pluto in Capricorn may need some sustaining and comfort after the big encounter with the Ecliptic. The New Moon is right there for him. Sun and Moon do indeed have powers of their own. And, of course, it is Sun’s place, the Ecliptic, that Pluto was at. There is an alliance factor. Sun charged Pluto to the core. Pluto is powerful, but Sun is Boss! Sun’s Light shows Pluto’s best and worst. He may be exposed for what he is. If he has been hiding his talents, he will become known for them. If he has faults, he better get down on that Capricorn knee and be grateful for help. Sometimes the Healer needs healing. No shame.

Saturn at 5 Capricorn, in his own sign and the same sign Pluto is in now, is holding space on his own. He is having time to mull over how his services can best be contributed, what needs building next.

We are living in powerful times of trial and change! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times, what has come to be. Scorpio’s powerful connections give us what we need to clear our way, heal our hesitations, clean up and be reborn! Birthing is an honor. May we meet all our challenges in a good way. And so it is.

Full Harvest Moon!

Monday September 24 at 7:52 PM Pacific, 2 Aries/Libra 0

Early degrees emphasis, TWO T Squares, Chiron Aries back to Pisces!

Libra Aries 2018 Full Harvest Moon Sunshine Skyway Bridge Tampa Bay FL

Full Harvest Moon shining over Tampa Bay’s 4.1 miles long Sunshine Skyway Bridge! Lovely image by award-winning freelance photographer Jim Sykes. 

Bridges are symbolic of Libra’s purpose, the connections of opposites. Full Moons are the same, specific to the link between Mother Moon and Father Sun. Libra’s Fall Equinox season change 2 days ago is the same. Libra links the fall quarter of the year, and all situations involving from summer, ‘as above,’ to ‘so below’ as we go into the shorter days, longer nights of the darker deeper time of year. Sometimes only Spirit is our escort; other times we go arm in arm, equals meeting the inner workings of our beings. One way or another, we all go. It’s a collective experience we have each year. Some have initial fears of the dark. In time confidence is gained, we enjoy this mysterious dimension, become to love its qualities. In the daytime we are headed toward intense and exhilarating sports in the windblown crisp clear-your-head cooler air!

Only 12 days ago we had the Jupiter sextile Pluto, the far, far from the Sun planet of dark! Jupiter is known for seeing the bright side of things and since Pluto is known for his powerful funds, Jupiter made some lucky deals and raised generous funds for benevolent projects and causes! 2 days ago the Sun went into Libra. Not only did we change seasons, but signs as well! Less Virgo labor now, more social connections, emphasis on collaboration. What was one person’s job has now become an active team of contributors! The result is more whole, more sophisticated, much more than the original intention!These and the Full Moon are all while Chiron is trying on it’s new speed in Aries, pushing for new beginnings, testing new ways of healing, new arrangements in partnerships and doing business!

Tomorrow, Sep 25, Chiron returns to Pisces for a reminder of why we are doing these new things, why they are required next. We go back for another look at where we have failed, the consequences. We are touched with compassion for the suffering of all manner of addictions – food, drugs, to relationships, even at times our so called ‘devotion’ to a spiritual Path. We will get deeper into true spiritual bonds that hold us dear to sacred places and principles we believe in. The Full Moon opens the gates between us, each other and different dimensions. Step back that we may go more powerfully forward later. Maybe we left someone behind, need to say the farewell that wasn’t possible before, or they are ready now and we collect them. Feb 18, 2019 Chiron goes forward into Aries for the next 9 years. At that point it will be 51 years before it gets back into Pisces again. Really seek Chiron’s meaning while it is in Pisces. This is it.

LIBRA & ARIES

While the Libra Sun is shining, Mother Moon is traveling opposite in fiery Aries. She, in all her feminine glory, is standing strongly, leading the way! She feels passionate about independence, woman power, taking the steps that make a difference for our children, our family, the work we do daily because that’s life, the skills we take forward to the next level. She doesn’t hesitate if someone is in trouble or a fire needs putting out! She’s 100% intuitive, swift and to the point!

Libra Sun doesn’t hesitate to introduce himself. He might like to help you, or live the advantage of your expertise. He would like to get to know you and connect you further to the right people and places. He likes to equalize situations, understand the merits of every person involved. Sun considers all the facets at present, the possibilities. There are times when no conclusion is possible. It’s either too late or too early. Compared with Aries, he is reminded there are times you simply must take some action, you’ll never please everyone. Yet he also knows there really are times to wait it out, poised. Aries learns there are times to let it go for now. They can really help each other. We’re making very fine jewelry here. Sometimes you turn up the heat; other times you turn it down and let things gel.

TEN factors make very CLOSE ASPECTS in the Full Moon Chart!

From zero to 8 degrees! 
0 Chiron Retrograde
1 Moon, Uranus, Lilith
2 Sun, Saturn
3 Mars
4 Moon’s North Node always retrograde in general motion
5 Mercury
8 Venus

CARDINAL T Square

Moon is with Chiron kickin’ up the dust in Aries. Let’s get this healing gig on the road! People need it NOW! Moon and Chiron are semisextile Uranus in Taurus, itchy to get going, make changes, but they are blocked by the square with Father Time Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. He’s asking for papers and proof, tests, rules & regs. Moon and Chiron would love to just push him aside, and might do, but there would be consequences that might make a longer delay later. Sigh. Uranus in Taurus, is close in trine with Saturn, has been gently nudging him, so a shift is soon. Saturn slows us down just enough to have the time we need to think more clearly and do it even better after all!

Sun and Mercury have been running into the Saturn bricks too! Saturn thinks of Libra as ‘fluffy,’ not serious enough to be considered. Yet, Libra has Saturn’s eye, since those goods sell better when they are Libra finessed and attractive too, bringing more sales. Saturn is the T point man, so they all have to get his approval before it’s a go. Once they do, Mercury is already ahead! The evening before he trined, consulted with Mars, who is always on the leading edge, and has been excited, expecting things to pop! Mercury has the word, and soon as, is hoofing it outta here to give the good news, gather the local troops! Good chance you signed some papers in the last six days.

Saturn is no dummy! He can just feel all the energy around him and knows better than to over delay and miss the magic moments. He can think pretty fast on his feet when a lot is at stake. Cardinal signs like action, and this scenario just can’t be stopped for long!

Moon and Chiron are sextile Lilith and Mars in Aquarius, the sign of change! Again, when Saturn’s requirements are satisfied, Mars and Lilith will offer an entire group of independent women and leaders in behalf of our efforts! This combo can sweep us ALL off our feet! Hang on!

And Moon and Chiron trine the Moon’s North node, sweetly links the Cardinal squares with the Fixed squares! Moon never lets sleeping dogs lie, and quite more so in Aries! She and Chiron are acting like power boosters. Trine her own North Node bodes well for the new beginnings she hopes for. The North Node swings the balance to equalize the South Node in Aquarius, her Past. In Leo it’s less for Aquarian friends and collaborators; it’s more for what’s in your own heart’s light now.

GRAND Fixed Square too!?

Lilith, woman of power, in Aquarius, the changemaker sign, is at the root at 1 degree! She squares Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius. She won’t be able to move him entirely, because he, though new in Taurus, his new job is to test for organic truth and anchor that in Taurus. What we had always wanted is now couched in new times, so it has to prove itself in current tense. Uranus is square the fixed sign Moon’s Nodes spanning Aquarius/Leo. Mars and Lilith are at the Aquarian South Node, powers of the Past called upon, in this case for chaos! Yet they have a rather odd resonance of invincibility. They want change, and it WILL happen! Though Mars and Lilith are independents, when they call the other independents together they are a force to be reckoned with. The Nodes, in turn, square Venus in Scorpio, but they are always retrograde and are moving away from her. Venus squared Mars way back on the 8th and they didn’t agree. Now she has moved past him. Mercury will make a semisextile with Venus, but it’s not a major aspect. Venus may have memories, but is not likely much interested any more. By numbers we have a grand square. By active planetary motion we really have another T Square. 

Fixed signs are meant to stabilize, anchor, focus and keep our attention on what’s at hand. But two of these signs Aquarius and Scorpio want significant change. Aquarius wants to mend planetary ways, Scorpio wants to transform you body and Soul so you can do the job AQ wants!

Uranus is at the point of the fixed T; Saturn is the point of the Cardinal T! Saturn is the venerable traditional conservative in charge, while Uranus is leading edge technology, often ahead of its times, the Futurist, Rebel with many causes! Interesting that Saturn is leading the Cardinal signs that want action now, yet he is a perfect leader to keep them all corralled so they don’t make mistakes and waste time! Ironically, Uranus, the ChangeMaker, is in charge of the fixed signs that are meant to stabilize us!

The rest of the planets….

Jupiter and Pluto finished their last sextile the 12th. So much potential healing ability was given to be used during these further planetary transitions. See more

Essentially, Venus, and Neptune in his own sign Pisces, stand alone. Neptune is ready when we need him. He’s free to be himself, uninfluenced at this Full Moon time. Venus will NOT trine Neptune until Winter Solstice, Dec 21! She retrogrades at 10 Scorpio 50 on Oct 5, already slowing way down to make the Rx station. She stands still for many days at that turn.

IN THE BACKGROUND

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and getting close to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

This Harvest Moon has a lot of close knit interaction and wants a lot of change! For those of you who have 0 to 8 degree factors in your charts, it is likely to be an intense few days, very involved with what’s at hand, emphasizing heightened person to person interactions.

It’s a pleasure to meet you ~

New Moon!

Monday October 8 at 8:47 PM Pacific, 15 Libra 48

Square Pluto/Ecliptic, Venus Retrograde, Fixed Star Rigel – Again!

Libra New Moon 2018 Under the Stars Together

Nothing like a New Moon night for star watching together!

The New Moon union of Sun and Moon is special in Libra, the sign of relationships. They are looking for equality, each offering vastly different qualities. Sun lights the way, warms the day. Moon has her phases and shape changes, now you see her, now you don’t, never quite the same since all the other planets constantly shift positions. She views them from different angles and notes their progress. Sun absorbs her collections and observations when they merge. She speaks in behalf of the people, their capability, the mood of the times. It’s a potent update. He sees from a huge vantage point, commissions her with distribution of new insights. He recharges her energy because her task is big and requires strength of Spirit. She disseminates the treasured information, always sensitive to the effect it has. As she circles, every point of view gives her a more whole portrait of the evolution of Sun’s ideas. Moon is his invaluable link, collaborator.

They are challenged by their square to Pluto! He is most certainly in the glow of the Sun’s Path around Earth, the Ecliptic. At this point he will conjunct the Ecliptic Oct 30, in only 22 DAYS! He may be so absorbed he hardly notices Sun/Moon. He is small, yet he is a powerful Being, and now he’s even being lighted by the most major Light we know! His power would seem beyond formidable, endless. He could be healer, he could be Evil personified. He’s in Capricorn, either builder or crusher. Libra better tread very carefully. This is not a ‘social event’ where you can just walk out the door with no consequences. Pluto knows your intent just about any day. With his powers amplified, you better go in with a clean heart. If you pass his tests, he will help you, build an awesome ‘house’ for you whether it is healing your body or building the Temple. If you don’t pass his tests, he will heal you so you can. If it is not the right time, he will know that too. If the idea is glamorous but false, it will be replaced or vaporized. You will be transformed, like it or not, one way or another!

Sun and Moon do indeed have powers of their own. And, of course, it is Sun’s place Pluto is at. There is an alliance factor. Sun is charging Pluto to the core. Sun’s Light shows Pluto’s best and worst. He may be exposed for what he is. If he has been hiding his talents, he will become known for them. If he has faults, he better get down on that Capricorn knee and be grateful for help. Sometimes the Healer needs healing. No shame. So, it may come to pass the Sun and Moon have their audience. Libra is just the ticket, an ace in delicate situations, reading every nuance, able to step forward or backup quickly as needed. It’s an intricate dance that can have extraordinary results. Respect is everything for Libra’s sometimes nervous subtle perceptions, Pluto’s well protected unspoken fears, Capricorn’s standing, reputation. All kinds of poise will be needed for this dance.

Sun and Moon just inconjuncted Neptune in his own sign Pisces. They are more empathetic. Neptune knows oceanic power, has all kinds of visions and perception. He has freshly transferred some of this to them so they will do better in their encounter with the God of Life and Death, healing and rising from one’s own ashes!

Mercury, also in Libra, is inconjunct Chiron in Pisces, tapping his wellspring of healing knowledge. Mercury’s quick ability may make all the difference. Just a few well placed words at a tense moment, can release the impasse, everyone takes a breath. Mercury is also out-of-sign opposite Uranus. Mercury is skilled at ‘interpreting’ his own way, in this case taking a Uranian odd idea but presenting it as plausibly sensible, catching everyone’s attention. All of a sudden everyone is calm. Oh, that’s what he meant. I see.

Venus is now retrograde and going ‘backward’ is squaring Mars! She’s too nice, and he isn’t. In Scorpio she might not say anything at all, but got what was going on behind the scenes. Mars in Aquarius is just itching to do something shocking. He might be rude or sexually inappropriate. Venus in Scorpio is hard to ruffle, but if he crosses the line, and Venus cuts loose, he may wish he hadn’t, and other people will be on her side. No excuse for her to be mean though. There could be a price connected to that caper. Libra is lawsuits. If things go the other way, Mars may shock Venus into coming out and taking a powerful stand! He could find her helping him present his inspiring project to clients who see the value she sees in it. She could do some fundraising for him if they get past their differences. Just get all the credit ratings, details and facts. See more about Venus Rx!

Mixed Grand Square! The early degrees are again involved, but not near as much as at the Full Harvest Moon. With Uranus retrograde and Saturn moving forward, they are no longer actively trining. The Moon’s Nodes are retrograding to square Uranus though. The Aquarius/Leo axis will find itself being shifted merely by being in Uranus’s company. In Taurus he has subtle electricity. He will have them consider practical changes. The South Node in Aquarius doesn’t like tampering with his genius, yet there is the planet of genius challenging him! The South Node in Aquarius is our past we hang onto, and Uranus is the ChangeMaker evolutionary futurist! What were genius ideas long ago need an update! Leo likes a good show, so is more likely to play but he is the Pet, likes his comforts. At the North Node he is looking for improvements. Taurus wants it to be a safe change that  will bring more comfort if possible, less indulgence at the expense of Earth. Mercury in late Libra can negotiate among them at this point, but when he goes into Scorpio the next day, he may have his own agenda. He may not even want to talk about it, and is stubborn if he does. Gotta show him the value and if it will make money to make him move. Or he may find himself shaking the bushes for funding for the biggest project he has ever worked on!

Fixed Star Rigel! Last month the New Moon at 17 Virgo squared, challenged Rigel at 16 Gemini 50 in the constellation Orion that so gloriously adorns the northern hemisphere winter heaven! THIS MONTH, the New Moon at 15 Libra 48 charmingly trines Rigel! Bluish white Rigel, is a double star, the 7th brightest star in the sky. Tradition regarding the influence of Rigel is quite contradictory. Ptolemy read it as Jupiter-Mars, showing a character that will take on anything before it, but such a person does have to be careful that their courage is used with wisdom and sincere purpose if they are not to be painfully stung for flaunting bravado for the sake of vanity. It is found in charts of government officials, military people, politicians, leaders of political parties, barristers and priests. Rigel proudly champions Libra’s handkerchief into battle and comes back with it to return it to his fair one! She is inspired by his magnificent behavior and vows to live her life more fully herself. They make quite the team!

IN THE BACKGROUND

Jupiter trines Chiron Nov 1, only that once! They aren’t quite close enough just yet for action, but see more to get ready for it. It is part of the 10 day sequence of aspects started when Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic!

We all are collectively journeying with Pluto, and keep getting closer to his date with the Ecliptic, at Pluto’s South Node, Oct 30! Per NASA that will be at approximately 5:13 PM Pacific at 18 Capricorn 58! Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come. Already we are seeing the underbelly of the world, the ever evolving unfinished that lies in darkness.  Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic!

We are living in powerful times of trial and change! Every New Moon is a precious restart from sign to sign. Each New Moon is a purity of that sign’s energy incubated by and integrated in the very latest transits of the times, what has come to be. Libra lives the crucial function of connecting us, negotiating with dignity and respect, rebalancing our relationships, securing vital alliances. It is an honor. May we meet all our challenges in a good way. And so it is.

Wesak Full Flower Moon!

Venus Grand Water Trine, TWO Fixed Stars are on the Full Moon axis!

Tuesday May 29 at 7:19 AM Pacific, 8 Sagittarius/Gemini 10

Gemini Full Flower Moon 2018

The Buddha’s Birthday, Wesak, celebration date is different in different countries. The United Nations will celebrate it May 29 in 2018! Please join a celebration in your area as fits your beliefs.

The second retrograde Jupiter in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces is followed by our Wesak Full Flower Moon spanning Sagittarius to Gemini. Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet, is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking often go with the territory. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with psychic believer and dreamer Neptune, in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may be taking a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time.

This Full Moon, the trine is especially blessed since Venus is joining them, making a Grand Water Trine! She is coming in at 11 Cancer and will trine Jupiter then Neptune exactly June 1 and 2! Jupiter can be an over honest good-time Charlie, yet in Scorpio sees deeply into our psyches, our deepest hurts and greatest powers. And makes us laugh anyway. Neptune in his own sign Pisces can seem oblivious, oozing along with no particular preference, but when on his feet, the whole Universe is tuned in and turned ON! He makes music beyond words that calls to every molecule in your body! You want to save the World. Venus in Cancer loves oh, so tenderly and is aware of every nuance of feelings. She has the softest touch, cradles you in her arms. She both prepares you to face your demons and comforts you when you have. She assists with memories, the subtle notes that call your Soul. She makes you care again and, after any crying is done, has the business skills to put you on the map! Jupiter has the funding, and Neptune has the Spirit!

The sacred journey is being planned; multilingual Gemini is spreading the Word! The recent Jupiter/Neptune trine, May 25 Pacific, was at 16 degrees, and stays close in degrees until the third and last one Aug 19, 2018 at 15 degrees. Though not in close degrees with the Full Moon, this Full Moon is the first within this span of Jupiter and Neptune traveling together. This is a period of possible dreams come true! Do some serious thinking May 29 through June 2 about what you would like to see happen. Set up the steps to be taken. Let it develop and grow. See more!

Gemini and Sagittarius, mind and meaning! 

Moon in Sagittarius runs away from home – and sometimes the grass really is greener! Already the little explorer instinctively knows there is much to observe, learned, find the greater meaning of. Philosophy and ethics are important. There is confidence and with big natural smiles they attract the help they need and travel in safety spinning memorably tall tales along the way. A broad perspective brings wisdom and justice. They are great athletes and winning gamblers! Their mothers may read to them from the very beginning, homeschooling no surprise.

Sun in Gemini is a strong quick thinker, speaks the words of the heart! Geminis cheer us to expand our thinking. Fathers have a special way of taking our hand, walking us along, listening to us. There is a radar for sincerity, knows when we are afraid, or in pain. In his huge capacity of experience, he is there when we go awry and lose our center amongst the amazing array of information we encounter. He shares his facts and covers the bases, is multifaceted, sometimes ambidextrous. There are so many possibilities! He is highly aware how important touch is, holds us close, yet encourages us to think for ourselves, shine our own light as we venture forth.

In the immediate background, the North Node and Saturn are at 7 degrees, the Full Moon just past them at 8 degrees. The North Node in Leo sextiles the Gemini Sun, trines the Moon. Both of those are classically positive aspects, opportunities for the Sun as the Node in the Sun’s sign Leo lights the way with courage and even bigger thinking! Makes you feel good to be your most glorious self! The Node invites the Sagittarius Moon to step forward as a coach with leadership stories based on personal experience. Nothing like real stories to inspire us to take that chance. If we fail at first, we know we can try again with a slightly different tilt! Gemini knows there are endless options; evolution is happening every moment!

Mercury is at 29 Taurus, the last degree, about to go 0 Gemini! All last degree points have a sense of maturity, finality, ending, hopefulness that the foundation is strong, ready for the next step of the journey. 29 Taurus is a little more serious being at the degree of the Pleiades, the Weeping Sisters. Also it rules the throat and strangling and hanging are not so good an ending. So be clear about how your life is heading. If you start feeling suffocated, at the end of your rope, time to realign! Prepare for stable background work that will hold the promise of your future.

Gemini, the next sign, is the Sun’s sign this Full Moon, and Mercury is Gemini’s planet, so this Mercurial transition is important. Mercury is semisextile the wild card Uranus, then sextile Chiron. Mercury and Uranus both have to do with communications. Mercury is your personal thinking. Uranus is collective thinking – humanity, the Internet! Uranus is now in Taurus, so we think of Gaia, the environment of our bodies and Souls. It helps to keep us grounded as evolution is speeded up. Chiron offers opportunities to access healing informations, teaching options, business connections, meeting fast thinkers like himself! Stand up with both eyes open! As one teacher said, Where your focus goesyour energy flows. Another way of thinking of this is Mind over Matter!

TWO Fixed Stars are on the Full Moon axis! One person summarizes, ‘The eastern royal star Aldebaran, the star of illumination, is directly across the zodiac from Antares, the star of anger, pride and revenge. This is the only exact opposition of two major stars!’ They are also two of the four Archangel stars, the four Royal Stars of Persia, the Four Guardians of Heaven. Ferocity required! In about 4 hours the Moon will be opposite Aldebaran at 9 Gemini 47 and in less than 2 days, the Sun will conjunct Aldebaran, the most famous of the four Archangel stars, represents St Michael! Aldebaran is God’s military commander and opposite his nemesis Antares at 9 Sagittarius 46! Antares is the Watcher of the West, guardian of the doors to the underworld at the heart of the Scorpion constellation. Shiver.

Robson says Aldebaran, in the constellation Taurus, gives honor, intelligence, eloquence, steadfastness, integrity, popularity, courage, ferocity, a tendency to sedition, a responsible position, public honors and gain of power and wealth through others, but its benefits seldom prove lasting and there is also danger of violence and sickness. Researcher Ebertin says Catastrophe by weather conditions, floods, shipwrecks. Acknowledged and leading position, but will make enemies through whom danger will threaten. Extraordinary energy. Bernadette Brady says you will face moral dilemmas that challenge your integrity. Avoid temptation to compromise.

Antares is said to make people tough, belligerent and pugnacious. This is an important star for military personnel and is said to convey mental alertness, strategic ability and courage and to make dare-devils, especially if tied up with the MC, Ascendant, Sun or Jupiter. According to tradition, Antares is of violent character and is credited with being significant for a violent death, either in battle or by process of law. On the other hand, danger may come about by fire, weapons or machinery. Antares is also said to be unfortunate for the eyes, if in conjunction with the Ascendant, Moon or Sun and this has proven to be the case by later researchers. Clearly, this is a ‘be careful’ star.

IN THE BACKGROUND! Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or Wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come.

Blessed be, you and the Buddha. May your MoonLight be flowerful!

NEW MOON – Two T Squares, Uranus and Chiron!

Wednesday June 13 at 12:43 PM Pacific, 22 Gemini 44

Gemini New Moon A Dark Sky studded with Stars Dark Purple Roses and Dewdrops

A dark New Moon sky studded with stars is similar to these dark purple Roses with galaxies of dewdrops.

This will make the last of 6 lunar events in a row that we have had planets at 29 degrees, the last degree of their signs. Both in Aries it was Chiron at 29 degrees Pisces. In Taurus it was Uranus at 29 Aries, then Mars 29 Capricorn. The May 29 Gemini Full Moon it was Mercury at 29 Taurus, and now it’s Venus at 29 Cancer! Finishings it has been, on the brink of new beginnings. In order, Chiron, Uranus, Mars, Mercury, Venus.

Venus at 29 Cancer sums up Mother’s love, our role as a child. She started out as but a baby girl herself. Her own Mother did as best she could. Maybe she was unable and let others do what they could. Maybe she came from a long line of dedicated capable loving Mothers who passed on that heritage and that baby girl became a wonderful Mother too. Zodiacally our charts may be easy with our Mums, partially or wholly challenging, or we were just born to do destiny on our own, Mum supplying the birth. Venus in Cancer can give a child a profound love and admiration for our Mum, or a knowing that we must love ourselves as we are even if Mum doesn’t. Venus in Cancer can give an abiding love for femininity, women, the Matriarchy, our home and community, culinary prowess, instinctual nurturing, Mother Moon! This is an important primordial placement for self-esteem, for a good quality of life.

Furthermore, Venus links to both T Square points! She squares Uranus, trines Chiron! See more below…

Moon and Sun are at 22 Gemini 44! Love those double numbers! So apropos for Gemini, sign of the Twins! I’m always in awe of this Moon/Sun merger! Bright as Sun is, Moon is there to shelter and nurture! Sun reminds her to take some time for herself and brightens her day! Moon in Gemini is careful with her words, has a lot she has collected to say. Mercury is in Moon’s sign Cancer, as Moon is in Mercury’s sign Gemini, mutual reception. Touching family memories are shared, more images taken for the album. Mercury remembers the dates and details, who was where, when and why, family lineage, making Moon quite happy to have the whole story. Venus in Cancer too, remembers sweet anecdotes of gatherings and who brought that delicious food and recipe! Sun is gallant and heroic with his words. He inspires all with his dramatic experiences and reenactments. The whole combination is heartfelt.

Moon and Sun recently inconjuncted Pluto in Capricorn, but make no close upcoming aspects to any planet. Darker factors of the past may need a warm gathering to heal difficulties that have lingered. And it’s good to get clear that was then, this is now. Don’t let emotional or psychic hangovers tarnish the goodness we have now. We have outgrown many old fears and built a more sturdy mindfulness now. If it isn’t much better now, see to it.

Two T Squares!

A T Square has a baseline of two or more planets opposite each other with another planet or planets equidistantly placed between them at approximately 90 degrees, the midpoint. It’s the very function of equidistance that gives additional potency! The Midpoint factor receives equally, no value difference. So the two powers merge without prejudice – neither submerged nor overshadowed by the other. The Magi astrologers say the midpoint is a fusion or melding together of the baseline planets’ symbolisms. If there is a planet(s) at the midpoint that energy activates the point planet and the point planet radiates to the baseline planets! Potency! Two expert sources are Reinhold Ebertin, German midpoint master – dead on interpretations, and the Magi Society astrologers. Learn more about midpoints at Cafe Astrology.

Any two planet(s) make two midpoints, one on either side of their baseline. There can be a planet there or not. Since they can be on either side of the baseline, there is a completely different sequence of signs. For example, our fixed T Square has Uranus in Taurus at its T point, making the sign sequence Aquarius, Taurus, Leo. If instead the T point planet(s) was in Scorpio, the sign sequence would be Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, a very different tone! And though there happens to be no planet there, that midpoint in Scorpio is still a sensitive point. One of your Scorpio planets might fill that spot.

The midpoint planet(s) can act as sender of the collective energy of the base group. It can act as a probe, the rep of the base group. It can seek fertile territory, as a ‘dowser,’ seek information sources to receive from, channel home to the people, act as a collector. It probably can do both simultaneously. As soon as information is received, it changes the substance of the search! The search instantly has greater capacity, becomes new and scans wider and further! It’s a living process.

In everyday traditional astrology oppositions have their maximum differences, the widest possibilities of reach. Squares break things down, break up, and break through. The mid planet(s), the planet(s) at the T point, interrupt the status quo the two opposite points may have settled at. There can be a surge of energy as we let go! Grabbing new ground makes sense. Jam the wedge in and keep the gates open. Take a good look and see if you want to go there, where you want to go. Get up and ride!

One T is the predominantly fixed T Square spanning the Nodes Aquarius to Leo, Venus at 29 Cancer at the North Node, Mars at the South Node in Aquarius, Uranus in Taurus at the point. Fixed signs are meant to anchor and stabilize important factors in our lives. They often stand true as ones we can depend on when life is chaotic.

Venus makes the link that makes the T Square. She is at 29 Cancer, the powerful last degree of the sign! Cancer is a cardinal sign, all the rest of the factors in the T are in fixed signs Aquarius, Taurus and Leo. Cardinal signs get things started and keep them moving! Fixed signs stabilize the achievement. Venus enters Leo 2 hours after the New Moon; Leo holds the Light forever in his heart! In Leo she makes the exact square to Uranus the day after the New Moon.

Venus in Cancer loves her nest, her family’s culture, tradition, homespun art. She stands for women, children, the young, the feminine. Uranus needs freedom, is avant garde, the Awakener before his time, concerned for humanity at large, planetary matters. His friends and associates, international gatherings are where his attention is. The internet is his tool of choice. In Taurus he’s a little more calm about it, and has some unexpected patience, but change there will be. The homestead, the animals, food sources, clothing – elemental commodities, our bodies. The definition of Beauty will change. We will be attracted for different reasons than before and want different things. As an ally, Venus will lend her Grace, give the personal caring human touch when Uranus doesn’t seem to care. Uranus likely sees how important her presence is, even more than she does, though he may not say so because so much is on his mind. Be good if he would let us know where we stand with each other… He’s so erratic, Venus may find it hard to find a moment to give praise for his works. Take some time for personal exchanges. Things will go better for it.

The North/South Node on the Leo/Aquarius axis is the baseline of the T. They are always retrograde, so they are going back to meet Venus, and they too will be squaring Uranus shortly. Venus will be at the North Node, the node that we are working to strengthen, to balance with the South Node of the past. The south in Aquarius means we worked with powerful groups of people before. The north, supported by Venus’s blessing, in Leo helps us keep our own counsel, regardless what a group wants us to think. We must stay with our heart, be good in our own personal way, put our stamp on it that others may recognize that special Light! Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, is the planet of unique, so there is harmony. Him in Taurus may seem oh, so, slow, to that S Node in Aquarius, but too fast, getting before our time, has prices to pay too. Take it easy, find your rhythm and right timing.

The North Node and Saturn at 6 degrees are separating from an inconjunct. Saturn in his own sign Capricorn is another calming planet that develops self-discipline. The node considered Saturn’s guidance at its neighboring sign to the S node. Saturn wants to use the past with moderation to achieve the work of the heart at the N node.

Mars in Aquarius was just activating the retrograde South Node and is well past the square with Uranus, the planet of Aquarius! Mars has a bold presence that isn’t usually easily dismissed or quickly forgotten! He moves swiftly to take action that makes change that can’t be undone so the initiation of the process is assured. We may have hoped for such a thing to happen for a long time. It may not start as we anticipated, so you gotta be fast on your feet and leave that delete button alone! Give it a chance, wait to see what happens and what might come of it!

The other is a cardinal T Square formed by baseline planets Mercury in Cancer opposite Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. Chiron takes the point in Aries! If we have Uranian change, we need a healer and teacher to let go the past and open us to future potential! Cardinal signs get us started and keep us in motion. Sometimes they have the ideas that we need the fixed signs to anchor and nurture in place. Other times they sweep in, clear the debris of old thinking, give away the old stuff in the garage, make new arrangements, inspire us to work updated ventures!

Mercury in Cancer questions you gently, but reminds you to take responsibility to self-nurture and kindly speak to help others. You know how Cancers are accused of being crabby, or a little shrill. Well that happens to the best of us at times. We sometimes forget how others are so sensitive even if they seem not to be. Mercury can give instructions about caregiving, mothering, how to listen to your parents and understand they have feelings too. If you ask a Mercury in Cancer what they think they will say, I feel… It’s good to have both logic and sensitivity. Mercury in Cancer may do a lot more listening than you would expect, even be a bit shy.

Oh contraire with Saturn in his own sign Capricorn. He wants to get things done in the least time with the least effort at the least expense. He is Father to Cancer the Mother though she may be the one he bows to! Moms are the cosmic authority no amount of credentials apply to! But who pays the rent?! Saturn gathers us up, goes over the project, makes assignments per our individual skills, checks on our work. He makes sure the client is kept in the loop and secures further work, makes follow ups. And pays our wages. He’s a terrific role model for the youngers, and often makes arrangements for our eldears. (My word.)

Chiron gives us the boot! Aries is no sleeping dog! Woof! Walkies?! You bet! More like at a run. He darts back and forth between Cancer and Capricorn! Cancer is at home but needs to get out and about, inspire the kids! Capricorn, a traditionalist, needs to be shown the new ways quickly, showing how they make a better product, working procedures, more profit. Chiron is good at business and Aries is the leader consultant! Chiron is the healer and teaches how to live well. Old wounds are tended lovingly or lovingly impatiently because he knows we can do it. So we get up and go! And, in Aries, we just plumb leave them behind, even forgot them! Relationships sure take a turn for the better as we are able to put more positive energy in the present than in the sadness of past losses! Aries is the hero, our inspiration, activation, the first! We can do it!

There are three factors linking the two Ts! The Ts are working together!!!

  1. Venus links to both T Square points! She squares Uranus, trines Chiron! Square Uranus she pleads with him to spare the innocent. His job is big, to affect vast numbers of people at once, and sometimes there are casualties. He does what he must. But leader to leader, there are considerations in the grand scheme of things. Kindness can make THE difference. She trines Chiron, but out of sign, Cancer to Aries, water to fire! Aries may make a run for it, being allergic to someone asking him to wait. His kind of responsibility is to be there first, help instantly. She may think he should be more kind, follow up, but he’s wise to know himself and have someone else do that follow up part. She herself is about to go into Leo, the next fire sign, and they will be more easy together, though Aries sometimes thinks Venus is just too soft, and in Leo perhaps a bit lazy, spoiled, selfish. Could be true, but ultimately she finds she can give and is a loving teacher with all kinds of heart! Together they can be magnificent! From a Cancer foodie to an athlete!
  2. As Venus comes forward, the Leo North Node, the N Node always retrograde, is going back to trine Chiron. N Nodes are the new territory, compared to the S Node representing what we did so well we did it bad or overdid it. Seeking a better balance, it is scary to leave an old familiar way. We could make a fool of ourselves, be clumsy, a bit awkward. And what Leo ever wanted that?! Humbling, I say, especially since a few days ago the S Node was with Mars in Aquarius, gleefully up to his old tricks with the gang! But it does feel good to be on his own in Leo, just be himself with no expectations or feeling obliged to the group. Do something, do nothing. Deep breath and be happy.
  3. Mercury, in the cardinal T square, just made a sextile with Uranus, the point of the fixed T Square, tying the two T Squares together. Sextiles connect mixed but favorable elements, in this case earth and water. Earth channels let water flow. Uranus is the most long term factor active in this chart. Both planets have to do with mind signs, Gemini, what’s in our head, and Uranus higher mind of collective humanity, genius and evolution, awakening! Mercury has the information, Uranus has the friends to carry it all over the world! Internet.

Saturn is retrograding back to square Chiron, but Chiron retrogrades before Saturn gets there. They do get close and the sniff factor is there, but no consummation. The worst fears make you take notice, but won’t happen, but they do indicate what could. There may be business and relationship difficulties that need attention. Health troubles are possible. Could be delays. Saturn is working hard in his sign, and Chiron has some new solutions. Give them a listen. Things don’t have to get dire to make excellent changes. See what you can do. You’ve been warned.

Jupiter trine Neptune continues…. Jupiter is retrograde, in close aspect until the third and last trine Aug 19. Jupiter is thought to be fame and fortune, expansion and growth. It’s good faith, optimism and often great luck! Travel, education, teaching and speaking are Jupiter super talents. Imports/exports. Fun and funny, great stories, publishing. Big dogs and horses, gambling on anything! Robust health, vigorous sports, resorts businesses! Put that all with Neptune in its own sign Pisces and you may have the longest ocean cruise, a huge fan following at your concert, an epic movie! Your life may take a spiritual turn into exotic places, both on earth and in your mind. Love may be lighter and deeper at the same time. See more, plan ahead, take the chance!

IN THE BACKGROUND! Oct 30 Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic! Yes, that is months away, but Pluto is on a 248 year orbit, slow moving, so very in effect right now! Pluto rules extremes. The words Life & Death say it all. Bankrupt or Wealthy. Alone or solidly together. Sexual or never been kissed, ever. We’ve had huge political, economic, civil rights and environmental changes, with more to come.

Use these powerful T Squares standing up! Uranus is the ChangeMaker, Chiron is the Healer/Teacher. Sounds perfect!
