The day before Chinese New Year, we have our Aquarian New Moon Jan 22 at 2 Aquarius 42, 11:39 PM Pacific.  This airy Moon activates 2 planets within one degree.  It reminds Aquarius’s planet Uranus that change is in the wind, to be unique, to make friends and be with groups of people who celebrate your choices!  The square Jupiter challenge is to have the confidence of your future, tell yourself the truth, let go of plans that lack life, make plans further ahead than usual!  If it aspects your chart well, you have a lucky chart and are in a lucky location for you, you just might have some winnings! 

Full Moon Feb 7 at 18 Leo 32, 1:54 PM Pacific.  Widen your choices of friends and personal performance.  Venus is at the last degree of Pisces, the last degree of the zodiac!  Complete your image, whether personal appearance, art/music, your project cover page, your home page, your list of dreams to come true.  Put some color on your palette, be the pretty bird!  Knowing Venus goes into Aries 10:01 PM, hold off on permanent change for a couple days.  Some things you suddenly won’t want anymore, there will be additions, new ideas!  Aries loves new and exciting, takes the chance, finally gets rolling!  The Sun is at the same degree as Mercury, the Messenger, so get the good word out, write the letter, place the ad!  Tell people what you want.  Check your melodramatic attitude.  Though entertaining, being demanding or pretentious, critical or contemptuous, mindless tantrums, aren’t going to cut it.  Give tons of appreciation and affection to yourself, and in glory to others!  Dance and sing!  Things are going to be ok.  Or not.  But you can handle it, and very well, too!

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

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

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

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

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

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

April 20 on, Mars will be in close conjunction with Jupiter until it is exact April 30 at 9:26 PM! This is record setting energy to the power of ten! There is a strong desire to teach through experience/action, travel, exercise, ride bikes, know the TRUTH, be free and independent! Assert your rights in a clear manner, say what you would like to see happen. Ahem, you may feel more sexual than usual. Ummmm. Fix things up, let no sleeping dogs lie. Clear your closet, do that spring cleaning you have put off for years. Replace guilt with action! Just get started. Sometimes that will carry you right on through the entire project! Just do what you can, perhaps delegate the rest? Let’s roll! The 30th, go to the Farmers’ Market for fresh flowers – you will need them next morning, May Day, celebration of fertility!

Unbelievable passion, magic of Spirit! Your Mother is impatient, your pen is pissed and potent, your Lover is sweet HOT, careful not to run the red light, exercise is a no-brainer, the mighty Truth stands on its hind legs and bites, change is electrifying and defying, a challenge to be alone together!!!!

April 29, the Moon starts with a conjunction with Uranus, a wildcard that can bring family, independence and community together as one!
April 30, Moon conjuncts Venus, then Mercury, while Venus opposes Saturn. Values imperative, brought back to basics. Losses versus accomplishment, love and family aligned across the table with business. Clear-the-air valuable exchange of ideas.
April 30, Mars conjunct Jupiter – see above please

Off for AM bagels and flowers! Better yet, plan for bagels in bed, crumbs and all, who cares, it’s going to be HOT boundless energy! If it goes awry, you could be angry, defensive, or the defender of all helpless women and children! One way or another, it will be a marvel! No running red lights in front of that officer no matter how lucky you feel! But GO! Go somewhere new and fun that you have never been to before! It’s a shot in broad daylight! A great chance of success! Make the launch!

The stellium (3 or more planets in a sign, not including Sun & Mercury) will cover the whole range of Aries, where will this energy spike be in your chart?! Let me pick the best chart for you! The 30th will be better for some of you, May 1 for others!

American Red Cross founder, Swiss Jean-Henri Dunant, was awarded the first Nobel Peace Prize in 1901.

ARIES is the first sign of Astrology’s first cross of the 3 Grand Crosses of Matter. Its cross is the Cardinal, as in the red bird, Cross. It’s four points are first, itself, Aries, Mars, the Warrior, Protector, Rescuer, Initiator. Opposite is Libra, Venus, the Beloved, partnerships of all kinds, equality, balance, respect, fairness both in beauty and in Spirit. The vertical axis is of Cancer, Moon, at the South, warm at home’s hearth, Mom’s nurturing. Opposite is Capricorn, Saturn, of the North, hard at work out in the world, building, fortifying, at times scrabbling for a toehold, maintaining.

The symbol of the American Red Cross, is red on white, Aries’s two colors! It was founded in Switzerland, a politically neutral country, for humanitarian purposes, to help soldiers. It was brought to the United States by Clara Barton after the Civil War. The symbol was chosen in gratitude to the Swiss founder, Jean Henri Dunant, using the reversed colors of their flag.

The Cardinal Cross is truly a cross of Matter. Without life, it doesn’t matter. Aries gives us that option for life and inspiration. Once gathered up, we can go home, be cared for, be loved, find productive outlet for our creative ability. Bravery and physical prowess are standard equipment for Aries. Standing up to a bully, in behalf of the underdog, when the odds are stacked pretty high, is merely a challenge. They wink at you over their shoulder as they lean right into the fray! Follow tight through the crowd, you’ll make it to the other side, or be first in line at the grocery store!

Ok, so not all Aries are that gallant. In fact there are some complaints they only think of themselves. And that may be true. Yet, we can learn to balance ourselves more appropriately. Take courage, say NO once in awhile. Say YES when you want it. Stand up. You can. Even if you fumble or are wrong. You can sort things out. At least you got started. Do you need to apologize? Would your Aries friend? Probably not. Should you apologize for just being yourself? Probably not.

In this time of needing great courage, stay steady in the Light. If you need help, be wise, ask for it. If you can give help, do it the ways you have that are so special to give, exactly as you can. I wish you and your loved ones the very best, with every breath.

In Dedication, and in Gratitude, to all those in Japan who are risking their lives to make things safe for us. They are Angels of a kind, heroes and heroines for sure.

July 30 Mars in Libra joins the T Square at the Saturn point,
July 31 Mars conjuncts Saturn! (See Saturn Libra T Square)  

Mars might just be the one to tip the scales!  Saturn can be hesitant, but Mars ain’t waitin’!   

Libra - Shiva & Shakti!

Only every two years does Mars go through Libra, the sign of relationships, balance, fairness, negotiations, business partnerships, separations, cross cultural connections, fine arts.  It’s a challenge because Mars’s natural sign is Aries, the opposite sign of Libra!  Mars is masculine, the independent warrior; Libra is ruled by Venus, feminine grace and sharing.  And, Libra is actually also masculine, being air sign!  Integration of our opposite selves, working well together, are acquired talents, challenges worth the learning.  They are tenets of an enriched whole life, comprehensive in scope!  

Now, with Mars not only in Libra, but with exacting Saturn, seeking updates and corrections, lazy mediocre relationships just don’t get the job done, especially if you are the one who has been being crazy!  Kick it up!  Get up your courage and go!  Sexual respect goes a long way.  Take your time, but let it be known you have the passion.  Try something spicy and new!  Show off a bit, and if you fall, laugh together, let it be good fun!  Reasonably serious is good, too serious is tedious.   

Loyal too long?!  Apply for new work!  Great time to start a dance/exercise class.  Apply for art school, a negotiations workshop.   

Lead the way for a day, see how that works, feels.  Act equal, like you are at that level too, or we are all in this together, equal in spirit!  If you are a sheep, not a ram, fine.  Be good at it.  Make your time and actions count.  If you are a ram, find your way through  – walk the wire, find the key, climb other the wall, lower your head and butt!  Look for the weak spots, strengthen the strong areas for the good.   

Resentments and authority struggles, rebelliousness, are good signs of healthy growing, a spiritual protest!  Don’t ignore it!  Take a good look whether it is yours or theirs, or both.  What do you each have to offer?  How can it become sharing?  What about that tone of voice or posturing?  Is parting ways a good solution?  Honor to all?  

This is a good time to see what has been holding you back from your opportunities.  Why do you hesitate?  Is that good to know?  What can you do?  Is it ok just the way it is?     

Stand right on top of that mountain for a better view!
